Hey everyone! It has been a while since activity was seen from Redditstuck, huh? Well, you'll all be glad to hear that the reason it has been in the works for so long is because we have a few flashes in the works, all which are going to be posted one after the other as the real adventure behind Redditstuck begins. You might ask why we're posting these threads now instead of a while ago, and definitely if we have nothing to show for it. Firstly, how rude! Secondly, that's because we've finally collected all the assets needed, and also are already in the refining process of the first flash! If you wish to catch up, then please click the Mirror link above where all 125 pages have currently been collected, ripe for your viewing.
In the meantime, here's the last panel from our adventure. Please enjoy!
An aged satellite floats listlessly through the void of space. Though it was launched into orbit some time ago by an up-and-coming network provider, only today will it finally transmit a certain well-anticipated string of data down to the Earth below. What might the content of this particularly consequential transmission be, you ask?

What you need to be asking yourself, as we find ourselves tumbling through this hostile vortex locked in the vicegrip of each other's sinewed brawn, is this: how deep does the rabbit's glasshole go? Does it have a bottom? So if you really want to do this thing -- if you really want to DANCE -- then I suggest you take off your shirt, put on a proper pair of fucking suspenders, and put those bologna loaves you call arms to use. Right now I'm a human goddamned beef windmill, god help us all.

STAGE 1 LEVEL 2
Satellite: Be the book girl already.
Well, that was something of an anticlimax.
You are now the book girl.
As far as you're aware, computers are not meant to function in that manner. Looks like you've encountered some form of fatal error. You knew what you were getting into when you downloaded a shady file from an unverified source, but you're rather upset nonetheless.
It occurs to you that you've yet to properly introduce yourself.
Your name is Emily Lunsford. You have an active interest in literature, and you pride yourself on curating your book collection to the best of your ability. You enjoy writing, though you tend to keep your work to yourself, away from the scathing criticism of the outside world.
You consider yourself to be somewhat of an introvert, and while you don't find social interaction to be one of your strong suits, you're making a genuine effort to improve. Occasionally. When you feel up to it.
Though many claim it to be childish, you can’t help but admire a webcomic known as Problem Sleuth 2. You enjoy the complex themes and narrative tropes found within, which often parallel many of the nuances of contemporary literature. You could go on and on about the ways in which you admire the comic, but it boils down to the fact that you would be remiss to miss the ending.
Unfortunately, there seems to be a minor roadblock in your path to viewing the long-awaited conclusion to your beloved webcomic. In addition to the fact that your computer has been requisitioned by an unidentified web client, there also appears to be a rather Foreboding Aura of Apocalyptic Intent spewing forth from the Heavens Above. You sincerely hope this sudden bout of Aggravated Armageddon doesn't interrupt your plans to catch the ending of the comic. You would be rather irritated if that were to happen.
In any case, your hands are tied at the moment, so you might as well find something else to do.
I thought I'd never ever have a favorite character out of any fanventure ever but gogdamn this is almost a female carbon copy of me. Whenever I think of a genderbent me I think of someone who looks nearly exactly like that. Either way, >Build a fort out of books (seconded)

Meteors: Stop falling so an introvert can finish her webcomic.
The meteors give it the best they can, but it seems like at this point in their lives, falling is simply out of their control.
You could try asking the Universe to stop making gravity be a thing, but you feel this would be ill-advised.
Emily: Build a fort out of books.
Careful to avoid damaging the bindings, you arrange a few of your books into a lean-to. Satisfied with your work, you retreat into the Novel Hovel, any tensions completely dissolved. Surrounded by knowledge, you feel a sense of belonging.
That is, you would, if your modus actually cooperated for once. Operating on a Timer system, it can keep your items stored for anywhere from an instant to an entire day. Unfortunately, nowhere on the instructions did it state how to actually set the timer, so you’re stuck with randomly generated intervals until further notice.
Looks like the Tome Home is out of the question, then.
Emily: Examine notebook by window.
This is your journal. You tend to shy away from writing about the tedium of day-to-day life, instead filling the pages with your personal reflections and musings.
Perhaps - if dissected by a keen eye - these jottings would act as a window to your psyche, allowing for a glimpse of your true self.
Perhaps, but not likely.
Emily: Examine posters and fangirl as hard as you can.
The posters are nice, and you appreciate them, but you don't have it in you to get excited over a few pieces of paper on the wall. You instead take this moment to acknowledge the craftsmanship of the artwork.
The scenes which they depict might just be your favorite in all literature, and for good reason. No other work of fiction has so elegantly portrayed the catharsis of escapism, as far as you’re aware.
For a brief moment, you examine the posters in great detail, observing each of the subtle techniques in turn before getting a move on with your life.
...However, it seems your computer has other ideas.
Apart from the foreign program that has forcefully pinned itself to your taskbar, nothing about your desktop seems amiss.

Also, remember to give www.reddit.com/r/squiddlediddlers/ a visit, and maybe ask a question or two! We already have some great people over there giving in fanart, talking about their lives and generally having a good time!

Emily: Stop saving PS fanart in a word doc. There's '.png' for that.
After witnessing a number of creator breakdowns, you’ve developed an irrational fear of artists purging their work from the web. To combat this, you’ve locked your most cherished pieces away within a password-protected Word Document, in which they can never be deleted. New passwords are generated each day, and if the files were to be tampered with, your computer would immediately self-terminate.
Surely this is the most logical solution.
Emily: Hatch egg icon to create digital scrambled eggs.
While TIAMAT contains no digital delectables, it’s still the most appropriate browser for a Sleuth fan such as yourself.
Sure, there a few minor drawbacks. Slow load times, compatibility issues, obstructive toolbars, high RAM usage, lack of security options, recurrent freezings, translation errors, unauthorized reboots and a tendency to delete itself, just to name a few.
Any of these would be a dealbreaker by themselves, but TIAMAT has exclusive rights to the one and only official Problem Sleuth browser theme, and you wouldn’t be able to live with yourself if you passed that up.
Emily: Attempt to figure out the cause of this mysterious occurrence via the Problem Sleuth subreddit.
You’re accustomed to digging through mounds of garbage to find even moderately tolerable threads, but this cavalcade of spam is well beyond your threshold. At least you know that the rest of the sub is in the same boat.
You’re probably more likely to get results by contacting individual users than by sifting through this cesspool.
Emily: Warn others about downloading "Sburb.exe."
You pick a user at random, resolving to warn them about the program in an act of goodwill. Maybe you can get some information in the process.
-- accusatoryTyper began messaging BrotherGrapefruit several seconds ago --
accusatoryTyper: This is a warning. accusatoryTyper: Your computer may be infected. BrotherGrapefruit: Are you serious? BrotherGrapefruit: I can't deal with another issue today. BrotherGrapefruit: I thought I finally drew something halfway decent, but then my hand slipped and smudged the ink. BrotherGrapefruit: Not to mention the fact that my best pencil is nowhere to be seen. BrotherGrapefruit: And you know what else? accusatoryTyper: Not now.
-- accusatoryTyper began messaging DagwoodDeluxe several seconds ago --
accusatoryTyper: That “game” on /r/PS2. accusatoryTyper: Did you download it? accusatoryTyper: If you haven’t, don’t. accusatoryTyper: I suspect that it’s a virus. DagwoodDeluxe: well, hello to you too, typer! DagwoodDeluxe: always the conversationalist, aren’t you? DagwoodDeluxe: unfortunately, you’re the slightest bit late. i’ve already installed it! DagwoodDeluxe: as far as i’m aware, everything seems to be in working order. DagwoodDeluxe: after the initial crash, at least. DagwoodDeluxe: are you sure it’s a virus? accusatoryTyper: It commandeered my computer. accusatoryTyper: Without my permission. accusatoryTyper: The very definition of a virus. DagwoodDeluxe: i’m not convinced. DagwoodDeluxe: i haven’t noticed any particularly malicious behaviour, and my computer seems to be running without issue. DagwoodDeluxe: maybe it’s just a buggy program and you’re far too quick to judge. DagwoodDeluxe: have you considered opening it up and having a go? accusatoryTyper: No. accusatoryTyper: I don’t trust it. DagwoodDeluxe: come on, typer! where’s your sense of adventure? DagwoodDeluxe: even if it were a virus, it’s not like your computer could get any more infected than it already is. accusatoryTyper: The damage will be contained. accusatoryTyper: Interaction would only encourage it. DagwoodDeluxe: how about this? DagwoodDeluxe: we’ll work together to collect as much data about the game as possible. DagwoodDeluxe: once we've amassed sufficient information, we’ll release our findings to the rest of the sub, potentially saving hundreds of computers. DagwoodDeluxe: i know you can’t turn down an opportunity for research. accusatoryTyper: Not in most cases. DagwoodDeluxe: if anything goes wrong, we’ll simply reboot our computers and call it a day. DagwoodDeluxe: what do you say, bud? accusatoryTyper: If you’re sure that it will work. accusatoryTyper: I will give it a try. DagwoodDeluxe: that’s the spirit!

I see what your playing at. Nice secret.
The construct is a Cassette player, isn't it? It works with Sevs cassette player in the past update and is linked to that shitpost thing by RedKings. I don't know if this means that Sev is a time player but its likely.
