From Homestuck, on my webcomic, mspaintadventures.com.

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.


Not what I was expecting

All of my friends are crazy about Homestuck, and it's all they ever talk about. I tried out the comic so I could participate in our friendly afternoon chat sessions, but I just can't get into the story. I feel that Homestuck is for extreme fans who started reading when it first started, and have stuck with it all these years. It's not entirely a bad web comic, it's just hard to really get into it if you are just starting out. However, I admire its success and popularity. Surely its author knows what he's doing, and he's doing it well.

Now, regarding this animation, I was a little disappointed. My friends told me that Homestuck's art style improves in recent animations and pages, but from what I've seen, it feels very mixed. I know multiple artists participated in this animation, but only after I checked the credits page on the Homestuck website.

To put it shortly, I was expecting a movie with actual movement with a consistent art style. It would be easy to say that "that's just Homestuck's style" and that "I wouldn't understand, for I am not a fan." Well, waiting for a big file to load is not fun, especially for those with a slow Internet connection. When I heard about how "Homestuck's new movie crashed Newgrounds cause it's so awesome!", I got really excited about this movie. It's just a shame that it was mostly a slide show of inconsistent art styles tuned to really nice music.

I am not a fan of Homestuck, and will probably never catch up enough to call myself one. My words are based on an outsider's perspective trying to fit in, but was pushed away by the intense fans and overly-hyped movie releases.

I do, however look forward to future projects by this author. I'll just have to remember to stay updated and not get left behind.

Amazing, as expected

Another Homestuck fan popping in to tell you that your work (and the work of the contributing artists and musicans) on this flash was excellent, Hussie. You have once again proven yourself a very talented writer and artist.

Regarding music, as one of the other reviewers asked, it can be listened to and purchased from a link on the What Pumpkin store. Do a google search for "What Pumpkin" and follow the links from there; this particular song is "Cascade" from "Homestuck Vol. 8".

Let me ask you..

How stoned were you when you made this? :D That's pretty amazing.


This shit is fucking brilliant, I started tearing up when Jack murderviscerated WV. 3: Way to end the act, this is insanely impressive in both size, length, emotion, revelation, and sheer technical requirements, I can't even begin to describe how much epic this is.

For everyone who hasn't read the comic, it is well worth the time, which isn't actually that long. It's a bit of an archive trawl (I estimate about three days reading leisurely with lots of time afk) but every moment is beautiful, and to be able to see the relevance of scenes like these it mind-bogglingly fantastic.

I love you Hussie, and I just want to let you know that we understand how much time this devours out of your life and you couldn't be more appreciated. I know you know, but you can take all the time you like. You can let Homestuck be your magnum opus, even, just by virtue of pages like these, but I have a feeling you don't want to stop so soon. :3 But always remember to take care of yourself, because we fucking love you, you glorious sack of crazy.

Augggh MSPA ftw 4evr herp a derp I'm going to go to bed now
