That's probably for the best, yem.

Sorry y'all. The first step is the most important, and I clearly took a bad one.

Hey, friend! I was told you needed some help and advice about where to go from here, and let me try to help out! I've been doing adventuring for several years and sometimes things don't always go the way you want.

The setting - if you want to use Homestuck as a setting, go for it. I know some people are really not into Homestuck stories, and it's probably hard creating a fanfiction to a popular story like that, but I've seen some really rad takes on it. So it's really up to you. The people who would read this would most likely be Homestuck fans, it's true, so that does limit you. However, if you go the original route, you would have to put some work into worldbuilding and ensuring that your story is its own thing, and I do recommend having some semblance of an outline - it's rare when I see a successful adventure that doesn't really have a plan behind it and is randomized.

The opening - you are really not too far into the story. I'd say that really, at this point, you could continue with it and just watch how you convey your story. Some webcomics and adventures I know started off slow and off-kilter as the author was trying to figure what to do with the story, myself included! Along the way, you can tweak it better or even take a step back and see what's working and what's not working for you - I've found that readers are mostly very forgiving with stories that start off a bit on the wrong foot as long as it comes together. So really, the choice is up to you. If you're really unhappy with what you're doing, then don't force yourself. Nothing good is going to come from trying to make you work for a project you don't have your whole heart set on.

Other than that, don't feel down! We've all been in these kinds of scenarios before. You have had a great start and I'm sure that whatever you do from here, you'll make something amazing. You can do it!
