DFDIW is really going all in on the audio reactions. I sent them an ask that was trying to hint that they don’t have to do one for every flash, but I might have been a bit too subtle about it. I just don’t want them to get too held up by it, that’s all.
Homehyuck (who we can now officially call Niki or Nik), is finally back at it and making good progress, not to mention doing some interesting speculation.
Now four seems to be an important number here, what with our four protagonists. Whether that’s an accurate connection, I don’t know, but I think that I’m at least supposed to believe that it is, at this point. So naturally, I would try to connect each planet to a character. John seems to be in a place with lots of black ooze, so I guess I’d put him there. The very brief flash we got of GG had her surrounded by very vibrant flowers, so she’d get the colorful planet. The gear planet reminds me of Dave’s shirt which is a really dumb reason but that’s why I’m putting him there. And Rose is currently surrounded by raining hellfire and also is the last one left so she gets the volcano. lol So much thought is put into this, can you tell?
Interesting. I've seen lots of livebloggers mix up Rose and Jade's classes (and when later reaching that point, Niki does too), but unless I've forgotten, this is the first time I've seen a livblogger muix up Rose and Jade's planets before the classes are even revealed.
Oh shit it’s a ghost!
First retcon hand sighting! Though the oil has been noticed many times already.
What if Jade is Nanna?!?!
Oh yes, that’s too deliciously ridiculous to pass up. That’s the new theory.
Interesting theory, but nope. They are related, though!
I should make a file for reaction images that will probably come in handy in the future. This one… ‘bluh’…. I’m sure there are more.
Indeed Homestuck is quite fond of that one!
Tell me that "meow" was the secret.
So we’ve got CAT front and center but I think that’s probably to disguise the Gs that are peppered about in there. The nucleotide bases for DNA. Also the letters that I notice the kids and trolls Pesterchum handle initials are composed of (if you count John’s original handle, not his updated one).
I don't think the Gs where ever intended to be hidden there...
After seeing Rose's Mom beat up monsters:
Can you have bare hands as a strife specibus because dang.
Yep, and she does indeed have that one!
Hmm. We saw Mom go through that teleporter (I’m sorry, I can’t remember what they actually call those things). What if this is her lab and the kids were grown here? …I don’t know why I just have this ongoing feeling that the kids are not what they think they are.
Oohh, Jade is going to prototype Bec ... and that's gonna give Jack all sorts of crazy a** powers I bet. That's why Droog's creating Bec, oh my goodness!
Wow, that was quick!
This archer is pretty sweet. I kinda hope one of the trolls is an archer, too.
Well, one of them wants to be an archer, at least...
Hey guys, IDT is back and Homehyuck has made some status updates saying he'll be back to liveblogging soon!
Hmm, the interaction command seems to have its own unique voice in all this. This could perfectly be meta or story-relevant. Or knowing this kind of stories, both.
AND THIS ROOM IS STILL A MISTERY! Is it really so bad in there? Pure harlequin hell? Utter jester japery? Absolute clown chaos? what even in the fuck is in there…
Even worse, the room is boring.
Also, here's a bunch of old Homehyuck reactions I've been sitting on and almost forgot about:
TA seems very knowledgeable about this. I sincerely hope that it’s because he read Rose’s walkthrough that doesn’t exist yet.
Well no, but someone has.
Ok this is the second zodiac pun in reference to a custodian. I also recall from that image on Spades Slick’s screen that Karkat’s sprite was prototyped with some sort of horrendous crab thing. If the guardians end up being actual representations of the astrological symbols I am going to lose it.
Well, be prepared to lose it.
First off, that is the greatest lusus. I want to hug it. Carefully so as not to crumple it’s delicate wings.
Unfortunately, more than it's wings get crumpled...
So Karkat is in the Land of Pulse and Haze, right? But like, he (assuming his color matches his blood) has gray blood. In fact, do any of the trolls have red writing? Does Karkat even know all that weird red stuff is blood??
Like… a cueball?
Ok but I just really love how laid back Gamzee is. He’s just chill and weird and he doesn’t care how anybody else is. I hope he is actually what he seems.
So I wonder. Even though they’re on different ‘teams’ do their prototypes carry over? Do they go to two different Mediums? Or they all involved in the same game and they’re just making it harder for themselves by splitting up?
