From Homestuck, on my webcomic,

Obviously makes more sense if you are caught up on the whole story, but hope you enjoy anyway!

edit: Thanks to those who've watched it and left comments. The small file size is just the loader, the rest of the movie is about 50 MB, hosted elsewhere on NG. Tom is graciously helping me host this file for my site, and since it's already on here, I thought it would be cool to drop it in the portal.

If you're watching this and already read Homestuck, thanks for following. If you're new to it, hope you like it and will consider checking out the story. There are many animations of this sort, making much more sense in context.

Your creative storytelling and visuals astound!

Yeah, for those of you who haven't been following the comic, none of this will make any sense at all. But visually, still super cool.

I just wanted to say that this animation is proof of your amazing storytelling skills, and your ability to put it all into incredible cinematics. The only criticism I'd say is that even though I've been following homestuck since day 1, your huge animations like this one sometimes weave together so many things that have happened so far, and so quickly, that I don't necessarily recall the details of those events and am left somewhat confused about the storyline. I get the gist of it, enough to continue following the comic, but it still leaves me somewhat confused. I think maybe sometimes your story is TOO complex for your own good. Nevertheless, I am always impressed with all those ideas you come up with.

I've been following your site since the days of Problem Sleuth, which inspired me to totally copy you and make my own version of the MSPA comics. Thanks for the good ideas to steal! Ha ha! Still, my brain can't keep up with your amazing storytelling.

Keep up the good work!!!!

This is insanely epic.

Watching this, I can't believe you're the same guy who unleashed the horror of Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff upon the world. Seriously, just how HIGH do you even have to BE just to DO something like that?

I can't read your webcomic to save my damn life

But this is pretty fucking incredible- okay evidently from my score I'm not floored because it's minimally animated but I assume this perfectly fits with your homestuck theme.

I'll read your webcomic one day just to see why people love it so much.

0u0 (Wait. No that looks stupid.)

So, like every other Homestuck fan, i've been waiting for this for two months; hoping to see this, I hammered the refresh button the moment the clock struck midnight and refused to go to bed until I could try almost an hour later, inadvertently DDoSing Newgrounds with the other million or so in our horde trying to reach the promised climactic conclusion to the act started a year, four months, and thirteen days prior. Again, sorry about that.

My expectations were high, Hussie. I expected something amazing for the time it normally takes to post a hundred or two pages of the greatest story ever to grace the Internet. Well, those expectations were blown far away. I was amazed to see how far this had come at the end of Act 4, and I was simply blown away by the end of Act 5.

The most amazing part of it all is how almost every event that has transpired here is frequently used as a cliche copout, a deus ex machina for authors who have written their story into an unusable situation and need to take drastic measures to fix it. Time travel and author self-insertion are the worst offenders. However, it's quite apparent, through the obscene amount of interconnectivity that Homestuck is, that these elements have all been part of the plan for a very long time, and have been bound together so well that they create an amazing story.

That's why I love Homestuck.

This flash definitely deserves ten - no... ten and a quarter stars, and could I vote a 6.12, I would. Keep being awesome while we boggle vacantly at these shenanigans.
