If you were never a dumb young Floridian who didn’t live exactly on the coast you probably never had a hurricane party

which is where you board up all your windows and stock up on storm supplies and drink shitty booze while watching the approaching storm on radar while you still had electricity and occasionally run out into the rain or try to take pictures of the stormclouds or light a bunch of candles and pretend you’re having a seance and just generally wallow around in a weird mixture of terror and eager anticipation

anyway i thought this anecdote was relevant now

Pretty happy with this news update tbh. It’s the best of both worlds - Homestuck updating again soon but not being about to finish anytime soon. Now we’ll have those regular “quick check the fucking site NOW” upd8 experiences again as opposed to getting the whole thing in one big dump and trying to avoid tumblr spoilers while we slog our way through it.

Also, I didn’t really like to think of Hussie slowly working himself into an early grave in order to deliver what he accurately describes as a “mammoth load of free entertainment.” So if he actually spent any time NOT working this year, that’s probably a good thing.

Imagine if we really are two weeks away from an up8.

Imagine if we’re not and it turns out that’s just the random URL that imgur assigned to Hussie’s latest horse gif.

Imagine if Hussie is engrossing himself in horse gifs right now because he just can’t face telling the Hometuck fandom it’s gonna be another year til the next upd8.

It’ll probably be in two weeks, right?

Seriously, how many times have you seen a website go down for a while and thought nothing of it?

My Homestuck blog has now become a blog apparently dedicated to speculating on the internal mechanics of Andrew Hussie’s brain in order to guess when the final upd8 may occur.

It must be fucking weird to be Andrew Hussie and know that complete strangers are constantly trying to predict your actions.

Ok, so I know that people have looked this over and Over and we're no closer to knowing when Hussie's gonna update But hear me out.

True! I hadn’t thought of either of those dates. :/ Whoops! ^_^ But yeah, I’d be more inclined to add 10/25 to the list, though for some reason I fee somewhat doubtful that Hussie would update on the 1 year anniversary of the Gigapause. But he’s done stranger things, so why not?

I’m still thinking that 10/25 is more likely too. Although whether it’s conceivable to get it all done in that amount of time is another matter. It’s hard to predict something like that with an author who has done 14 hour days in the past.

The thing about the Gigapause anniversary is: we know Hussie likes anniversaries, in fact’s it’s part of the reason 4/13 became such a big deal. And whilst 16th October doens’t have huge significance in canon, it has MASSIVE significance in fandom because that’s the date you see first when you log onto MSPA for the last ten months. That’s the date people think about when they try and work out how long that final upd8 is gonna take. And Hussie is generally not oblivious to things that are significant to fandom.

On the other hand, he could just stick it online tomorrow for the hell of it. The man is a riddle wrapped in an enigma wrapped in horse porn.

I was thinking and pondering and realised that if Mr. Hussie is thinking to update on important dates to the comic he’s got two dates this year that he could update on that I could see. (Dates in mm/dd/yy)

  1. He updates on the Alpha session anniversary: 11/11/14
  2. OR he updates 413 days after his…

What about 10/25 or on the first anniversary of the gigapause?

Found this good post on it, can’t link properly because mobile

Hmm. I can see the significance of the date, I’m just wondering if there’s enough time for it to be finished by then. In terms of how big I’m guessing this update is, how many other pies Hussie has his fingers in and how long it’s all going to take, I was expecting something more like 25th October. Although obviously I’d be happier with 8/8.
