Good sir, have you no shame?
Here we are, waiting for eons for an update and then you go and give us this... this... INTENSE MINDBLOWING PILE OF EPIC?! The first time I watched, I could not even process the sheer awesome everything of what was going on due to my excitement. Was this worth the wait? Absolutely not. IT WAS WORTH ETERNITY. :)
I haven't been following Homestuck for as long as some of your other fans, but I joined in in time to get used to the frequent updates, only to be suckerpunched by the more-than-worth-it-hiatus. It was awful. It was empty. It was... Well. It's over now. And in its place is this blessed thing, like an oasis in a desert, or candy corn in a stylish fedora, or even a gambit schema carved from a nonexistent pumpkin.
I think the whole entirety of the universe (Bilious Slick and otherwise) will agree with me when I say that Homestuck deserves its own adjective. Awesome. Epic. Mindblowing. These words. They fail to capture the true... indescribable essence of the calamity that is Homestuck.
And this flash. Oh GOG this flash. Act 5 was a doozy. It makes sense that its EOA animation is one as well. This had a ton of stuff going on... A lot of character deaths... like WV. WV was my favorite. :( The Mayor of Cantown will be forever loved and eternally remembered. Bec PM had better give Bec Noir whatfor. I'm looking forward to that confrontation.
And the tumor creating the Green Sun OHMYJEGUS I did NOT see that coming! How do you do it Hussie?! How do you make everything work so WELL?!
I love it. I love this, I love the people you get together to help you with the music and the everything, I love you.
And this FLASH. I cannot get OVER IT. I showed this to my sister, who I have many times in the past attempted to convince to read Homestuck. I failed to convince her every time. And then she saw this and so was swayed. She has blazed through three acts in as many night. Because of this flash. This marvelous, beautiful thing that is amazing even without knowing what is going on, and is enhanced when that knowledge is had.
I. I. I need to stop rambling now.
I read your work a few years ago when it was still detective comics. I gave up because I didn't think the thing was ever going to end.
I noticed homestuck through the somethingawful forums, avatars. I was intrigued, but never read the comic, remembering how huge it was.
So in summation, damnation to you for creating this and making me break down to read the comic.
Even the preloader blew my mind
One of the greatest things I've ever seen. It feels very connected, symbolic, and deep. Although I couldn't understand it in the slightest, I could pick up that evertything had opposites, or dualities. I'll watch it a couple times and check out the comics! It's probably one of those confusing mindblowers. We'll see.
I don't understand the critics saying "I didn't understand it abloobloo" or "you should have just said it won't make sense to normal viewers" -when the poster says it probably won't make much sense if you haven't read the comic.-
People are dumb.
Signed up for NG today just to give this some praise. It's an amazing work and the music is amazing. RadFox did a good job, as did everyone involved!
Just... words. Utterly awesome. Can't really get my feelings out of my mind and onto this text box. Just... I really love Homestuck.
Oh, and in response to the reviewer who was amazed that this flash was only 293.2 KB... well, it isn't. It's around 50ish MBs. Not sure what Newgrounds was recording. Maybe the size of the preloader?
