"IM: The code countains everything in the SBURB-verse. Even us. Even quite a few things that AREN'T part of the SBURB-verse. Only Lord English is somehow outside the code, yet inside the SBURB-verse." - 404

"Skaianet is the source of, and protector of, all universes. We give the tools to those worthy, and weed out those who have no hope. Through machination and machinery, we sort the wheat from the chaff, the strong from the weak, and create the most able universes possible. We do this for reasons that few can grasp, and that change constantly, regardless of any opinions. We guard and spread reality. We are the opposite of oblivion. We are skaia net." - Khalik

A Fan Fic which can be summed up as: Homestuck behind the scenes, with a dash of Crazy Awesome.

The SBURB Patch Notes (previous thread, and the thread before that) Play-by-Post Game is, in a word, the unusual story of a group of developers that create the legendary game that will end the world, keeping it patched and updated across universes in paradox space.

Oh wait, did I say developers? More like a cross between Troubleshooters (from which they derive their high mortality rate and tendency to literally jump into a problem), flashy hackers (which grants them god-tier coding abilities, which they need to navigate convoluted code built up through all of time and several parallel universes), and, often, Sburb players themselves (most of them have at least one of the Elemental Powers, directly related to their game experience). Going Serial Escalation is in the job description.


In any case, the group is privy to many disasters that require them to scramble to preserve the fabric of paradox space, from Space Marines and glitch invasions to nanomachines, viruses, and ponies. As often, they deal with the players of the game - players who take advantage of Sequence Breaking, who stumble into Game Breaking Bugs, who want to screw the game over, time loops and all, who have no idea what's going on: all of them might just break the universe into teensy little pieces, and the Skaianet Sburb dev team are the only people who can put it back together, Because Destiny Says So.

Also, they have pizza.

Of course, The Wiki Rule is in effect here, but who am I kidding, everyone'll just use TV Tropes for that anyway.
