Jake English's Mysterious Theater of Scientific Romance from the Year 3000 is an MST series written by Edrobot, centering around characters from Homestuck riffing really bad fanfiction. The twist is that Jake, canonically liking absolutely all movies, here likes absolutely all fanfics, and takes most of them a bit too seriously. Hilarity Ensues.

You can find it here, on edrobot's blog. His tumblr is found here.

Works riffed so far include:

Tropes featured in this series include:

  • Dave, Karkat, Lant, Electra and Pinkie Pie are all Caustic Critics of one breed or another, though Pinkie cares more about cracking jokes than making fun of the work.
  • Alfred leans more towards being a Compassionate Critic, but Karkat, Lant, and even Jake dip into this when they try to explain why a work is so bad.

  • Deus ex Machina: Parodied in the season 4 finale. After freeing Zeus from Granny Goodness, Zeus immediately solves all the plot threads without any sort of explanation.
