I started reading Homestuck back when Problem Sleuth ended and HS began, however I had to stop during the troll era due to sudden lack of internet.
Fast forward to now.
Back again on the internet airwaves for some time, I considered catching up on HS again, but I was put off for the longest time by the suddenly prolific fanbase, who appeared to be everywhere, trying to shove HS into everything and constantly talked about it and why it's the best thing ever and why they were better than the rest of us for it. I just don't get why people do that.
By the way, I've prepared this ten-page essay going into great detail and length in order to explore all the complexities and intricacies of Rarity, and why she's so freaking awesome, fabulous and why you should like her more.
Though to be devil's advocate here- an 8000 page comic has a lot more to talk about than a children's show. Not that a majority of Homestuck fan's actually talk about the comic as much as they do things tangentially related to it. Ad nauseum.
The people who yell at MLP fans to shut up probably do the same to other Homestuck fans. It's more the individual's in question than it is entire fandoms.
you kind of missed the point dude, it is not about whether one is more valid than the other but that fantards are only interesting to others who share the same interest and all mindless doting is annoying to the same degree. you also spoke ignorantly XD mlp is a thirty-year-old franchise
I typed in "fandoms" on dA and this is what I found. Well, I tried and failed to get into Homestuck. I "played/read" the "game/comic" thing for like thirty minutes, and that was with furiously clicking and skimming, and it still didn't get to the interesting part where the gray-skinned trolls actually happen (they are like the most iconic part of the series)....or just an obvious narrative.
And Touhou Project, after a few minutes just recently, I was like "nope." Not gonna dedicate my time to figuring out how to even go about getting into that. Play the difficult games first? Or get background/comics info first?
It would be more intellectually productive to figure out how to read that Ulysses novel by James Joyce. (which Homestuck has been compared to, I reckon.)
Yep, ponies are actually pretty normal. A safe little hole to hide away in.
Actually, one of those puppets could very well be me, just look at my signature, which I have no intention of changing.
