    Was that meant to be an edit?

    I predict that the last MSPA page ever will contain a room full of pumpkins and arms.

    It probably should have been. Now I feel terrible about it.

    I'd get so much more sleep too, not staying up hoping for unpredictable updates! You're like that psychology experiment with pigeons and rats.

    If a rat gets at treat every time it pushes a lever, it will quickly learn to stop pushing the lever when it stops resulting in treats.

    If there's a predictable pattern--every other push, or every two pushes--they'll keep pushing that lever and refreshing that webpage for longer after the reinforcement of 'hey, update!' has ceased.

    Now, if there's an unpredictable pattern, well now we're getting into why gambling addiction is so insidious. If sometimes no treat, sometimes treat, sometimes big stack of treats, all without a consistent pattern, those viewers will just keep refreshing the home page forever, hoping for the big score.

    You're like some kind of sadistic Pavlovian artist, man.

    This is all true, and you didn't even get into the territory of psycheouts and plot whiplash.

    But seriously guys I'm not going anywhere. I am impervious to the nervous breakdowns that crush lesser artists, I will never luxuriate in retirement, and I can never die.

    That's all well and good, but your fans are mere mortals. What happens if one day you give us all severe stress-induced medical problems and we die?

    And that's when he'll abandon updating the site.

    Only the mightiest fans will survive, and they are the ones who will carry the story through to its end. It's all part of Andrew's nefarious plot to reduce the fanbase and keep the suggestions to a minimal.

    You've got it all wrong.

    Like I said, Buddhism. Buddhism is the only answer.

    To remove our selves from such suffering, we must extinguish our intemperate desire for more updates. All things are impermanent, even the state of no-update.

    Still your monkey-mind, remove the illusion of form, and recieve the fullness of Homestuck in due time.

    Are you trying to say we will all become elightened once Homestuck is over? Andrew: Confirm? Deny?

    Immortality: admitted! Yay! Please don't ever leave us though.

    Do you stave off cravings for less-noble pursuits by having a fig-leaf-adorned Gankro bring you delicacies and feed you peeled grapes? And while Marelo is bathing your feet, Byron enters the chamber to entertain you with his tales of whimsy. Am I on the right track here?

    When HS ends it will send a psychic shockwave throughout the cosmos, and all those it does not kill instantly will be elevated to deity status.

    This all sounds really unpleasant.

    I'm just trying to figure out why you said it in the first place Andrew.

    Freudian quote tag malfunction I guess.

    Guys.

    Henri Becquerel discovered that uranium salts are radioactive.

    Clearly this means Andrew plans ahead way far.

    Isn't that, like, the premise of Homestuck, but with meteors instead of a shockwave?

    What, pumpkin-carving, pogo-riding teenage sycophants are good enough for you?

    Do you disdain our noble offerings of slash and fanart of characters as furries?

    Are harem girls acceptable, in lieu of eunuchs?

    Hm. Buddhism and cessation of desire may not be the solution here. Perhaps proof that it is enough of a cash cow to continue unto eternity is the proper choice. Back to being a mindless consumer caught in the web of capitalistic fetishism!

    Then again, the world would be a lot less crowded with just AH and his coterie of fledgling deities.

    I'm torn.

    Actually the post made me think of...

    But that works too. Clearly, this is no mere work of fiction, but a portent of future events. We must do what we can now, while we still have time!

    Aha.

    Andrew, we know too much now. You're stalling to whip our desires into a frenzy of apocalyptic fervor.

    Clever man. You may yet have those eunuchs.

    Years in the future, but not many...

    A lonely traveller paces across desert sands, weary of constant travelling. How he longs to reach his journey's end! But his goal lies in sight. There, just ahead, a book juts out of a large dune. Quivering with excitement, the lean figure heaves the tome out of the sands. At long last, the ancient text of the last great prophet of Earth.

    The book's title? Homestuck. It's author? Andrew Hussie.
