for people who liked act 1 and stuff

[Image: p001.png]

It just so happens that today is 13 April 2016, but since you're in The States, they measure everything differently, including time. It's 413 again.

You wish you wouldn't recall these memories every year. It drives you nuts. You left the fandom and want no part of it. But even then, year after year, you find yourself in the same place.

You joined an online support group for this a year ago. It's called Eagle Time. These people understand you. They feel your pain.

You skipped school today. Everyone knows how much of a Homestuck you used to be, and it's only worse now that the HOMESTUCK GAME is due to release today. You slept in all morning, and the time is already three o'clock. You have a feeling it's going to be a short day.

===

Your name is Katie. That's right, you already have a name.

You're a huge fan of SHOUNEN ANIME AND MANGA, and your room is full of shit related to that. You enjoy WRITING, and every page of your work is reviewed by your COOL FRIENDS at Eagle Time. You even got an Eagle Time shirt, which you're wearing right now! Your Eagle Time username is Caper, and you don't have a typing quirk because you're not a fucking dumbass.

What will you do?

This is the first thing you see on twitter. Jonah goes to your school, so you're afraid to unfollow him, else you get reported for "cyberbullying" and go to jail or something.

This asshole can't be serious. Fucker even favorited his own tweet.

You start to write the tweet, but reconsider when you remember a certain xkcd. You know it's no use trying to fix this loser.

Just then, your phone goes off. It's your internet friend. You met him on Eagle Time.

To be clear, you pronounce Eagle Time "Eggle Timmy," right?

Before answering him, you briefly consider that you might have been pronouncing Eagle Time wrong all along. It makes you a little uncomfortable, but you'll worry about it when you have to talk about it in real life, which will be never.

That's not snake-ass, that's Crash Lancer!


Crash Lancer: caper
Crash Lancer: i have a confession that i need to tell you


Caper: Yeah?
Crash Lancer: i donated to the homestuck game
Caper: You mean the Kickstarter from way back then?
Crash Lancer: yes
Crash Lancer: the game arrived today
Crash Lancer: and

Caper: Don't feel bad about it. That was the past.
Crash Lancer: i'm sending it to you.
Caper: You're gonna burn it, right?

=== Crash Lancer is sending SBURB.zip ===

=== File denied! ===

Caper: What?
Caper: I don't want this

Crash Lancer: did you see jov's tweet
Caper: Of course I did
Caper: So what, are you in on this too
Caper: Come on crash
Caper: Get a hold of yourself

Crash Lancer: this is serious
Crash Lancer: do you even look at the news
Crash Lancer: no
Crash Lancer: look outside
Crash Lancer: the first few meteors have already started falling

Caper: Bullshit
Crash Lancer: you have to believe me caper!
Caper: I'm not going to waste space on my computer for this shit.
Crash Lancer: this is serious! you're going to die!
Caper: Oh my god
Caper: So what, huh
Caper: The file's going to take too long anyway
Caper: If this thing is true, I'll be dead before I can even get the game

Crash Lancer: it's on a compact disk!
Crash Lancer: let me repeat that
Crash Lancer: compact fucking disk!
Crash Lancer: a CD!
Crash Lancer: just fucking accept the files, they're not even a gigabyte combined

Caper: Uuuuuuuuuuuggghhhhh
Caper: Only if it will make you shut the fuck up

Crash Lancer: you have to install it too!
Caper: Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
Crash Lancer: please. you have to believe me.

=== Crash Lancer is sending SBURB.zip ===

=== File failed! Caper's device does not support this type of file! ===

Crash Lancer: what?!
Caper: I'm on my phone
Crash Lancer: get on your computer!!!
Caper: Okay, alright, but I'm not installing anything
Crash Lancer: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

crash lancer isn't the kind of guy who would make silly jokes like this. maybe you should look outside? and if there aren't any meteors, it's not like anyone was watching you and you won't have to pretend you're gullible!

Well shit.

It's probably a coincidence, right?

You don't trust coincidences. Get onto your computer and follow the instruction manual cleverly disguised as an online web comic

Download the game. But reluctantly. And remember to send Crash a bunch of snarky, sarcastic comments while doing so. Because obviously.
