The platform parallels are definitely foreshadowing doom. The rest is guesswork.

I think that either Calliope is Lord English (we do not see the cheeks of the one who gets sucked into Lil' Cal, but we do see that they have the ring that there may only be one of) or Caliborn will enter the kids' session through her (by someone saying his name while she has spiral cheeks). I can't decide which is more plausible.

This is all well and good, but we only have two more days. How the hell is that all going to be wrapped up in time?

The 4/13 update is an entire act, so presumably quite big.



I thought the end-of-act animation was a tad on the weak side compared to the others.

Compared to other fight/strife scenes it was great. Nothing was skipped over.

Compared to Cascade or Game Over, it was weak. I suppose the final act will have something like those.

Yeah, that's a fair assessment.

By the by, how is it that Dad recognizes John? Isn't this Dad from the second session? What even is Dad, anyway?

He doesn't recognize "John" he recognizes young pop-pop Crocker, who was HIS father.

Is anyone else kind of nervous that the Mayor is getting so close to an active volcano? It's not safe. What if he gets hurt?

In any event, it would seem there's only one update left to go. Let us savor this moment as we stand on the brink of a new age. A brighter age. An age without Homestuck.

I'll see you all on the other side.

Thoughts:

I hope it really is game over.

I hope Vriska and company end up vaporized by whatever cosmic bullshit went down out there. Good riddance to the lot.

Can Town!

Not much of an ending, all things considered.

But still: CAN TOWN! And the Mayor lives!

I'm glad it's over. It's been fun. Don't come back.

Probably

Alt-Calliope destroyed the green sun with a black hole, which swallowed everything in the ring of destroyed space that LE had created when following Vriska and her army.

Vriska's use of the Juju decoupled the kids from the realities LE had influence over, so the door turned from Red to White, leading to the fresh new universe frog they had made.

LE and Vriska and everyone in the furthest ring was wiped out by the Black-Hole New Universe filling-in-the-space combo.

Allowing the mayor and everyone to live happily on the new earth, using time and space and other powers to make it liveable again and so the Carapaceans and eventually the Trolls and Humans can all repopulate it and live there.

You can see Lord English depowering when the Green Sun is fully absorbed.

And Lord English can't influence the new universe because it's the one he was born in and if he appeared there it would be set for destruction which would destroy him.

Time to change the title again.


Erfworld: The book of retcon's name makes me question its validity to the setting. Same for book of fanon. We know it's possible to 'publish' your own book. What if someone combined that with magical discipline that manipulates chance, or maybe carnymancy? You could get a book that automatically appears in every library, just like the book of canon.

If we take the names literally, the book of retcon should contradict the book of canon at several points, though it might have been written later by the titans (retcon does stem from the official source). The book of fanon would be the one that wasn't really written by the titans, but by some guy trying to write his own thing.
