Learning and Sburbing by stacy-ampora-strider-ampora is a Homestuck Alternate Universe Fanfic in which the author's Author Avatar Stacia Worchester lives in Sburb and attends school with many of the characters from Homestuck. Many of them, however, have either declared love for or a vendetta against Stacia within seconds of first meeting her, and on top of that, there is the constant fear of a threat throughout Sburb, Prospit and Derse.
It is referred to by many as Homestuck's My Immortal, and garnered a lot of attention on Homestuck's subreddit, at least until it was superseded by cool and new web comic. Nevertheless, it still has the distinct honor of providing eight Homestuck-related WTF Fanfiction quotes in a row.
