    Re: MSPA Fanfiction V: We're Going to Need More Wands

    Hello, everybody! I was wondering if people here were open to suggestions/requests for topics. I've had a few ideas that intrigued me but my job's crazy hours and my poor writing skills have basically prevented me from doing anything with them, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

    @Irate: I'm not much good at proper stories, but I'm always open to songfic suggestions. If there's a song you'd like to see rewritten to be about Homestuck, let me know and I'll see if I can do anything with it.

    I'm definitely open to suggestions. It always lets me try out something new.

    I liked it, despite the talkative Doc Scratch (who is still pretty damn manipulative.) And I agree with the color tags. Half the time I spend on a fic is dicking around with the color tags.

    So I get back from my day of RL interrupting me and find that Kass has killed Andrew and taken his place. And that I'm 0kay with that. I tried to explain this new development to a friend but for some reason they did not believe me!

    This is a happy moment for me.
    Congratulations, your fic definitely deserved it!

    (I am also happy today because as of this update the character interactions in Unhinged are just slightly more canon, and that is a wonderful thing for an SSDD shipper like me.)

    Yeah, I suspected you too, along with Path in a manner of speaking, so perhaps we still have a mystery on our hands! *deals Clue cards*

    Cool, thanks! I apologize if any of these have been covered, but I haven't had the time to go back and read everything you obscenely productive people create. Just this thread alone is daunting and there's 4 more? Yikes.

    So my ideas are really questions about how various mechanics of SBurb would effect people with certain beliefs or predilections:
    1. A committed pacifist ends up playing SBurb. How does he deal with a world where he is expected and encouraged to kill intelligent beings for money and power? Does he throw away his beliefs and play normally? Or does he attempt to resolve all his conflicts, from the first imp onwards, with meaningful dialog and mutual understanding? Can such a tactic even work, and if so, for how long? What happens if/when he ends up holding the rest of his team back? Would it really be possible to beat the entire game through sheer pulchritude alone?
    2. A True Believer ends up playing SBurb. Which religion isn't important, the important thing is this person knows the Truth and is very comfortable in that knowledge. How does he cope with the idea that everything he was raised to believe in and hold sacred is thrown right back in his face as garbage? How does he handle having his worldview ripped to shreds with what one would consider irrefutable evidence?
    3. A Machine/Artificial Intelligence ends up playing SBurb. If there's tons of universes out there then surely there must be one with machine or artificial intelligence sophisticated enough to qualify as sentience. Do the players of SBurb or other universes' equivalent game have to be organic life or is merely sentience required to play? If one does get in, how would it react? How does it deal with the existence of something as illogical as magic? What if it ends up having to become a magic user like Rose? (Yes, Watson on Jeopardy was partially responsible for this idea.)

    Those are the 3 situations that have been bouncing around my brain for a little while. I would be thrilled if anybody would be willing to delve into any of the three, or combine them into a team for maximum challenge! There are other smaller idea bouncing around in my head too, like an OCD challenged player who is trying to cope with SBurb being the biggest routine disruption ever (in the Land of Sidewalk Cracks and Disorganization?)

    Thanks regardless everybody for being such entertaining people. You've kept me from boredom at work many a time.

    AM from I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream plays Sburb with his survivorsplaythings and through the course of it all maybe, just maybe they manage to earn back their humanity. And then, even the heartless computers can learn to love.

    Haha, just kidding. Somehow Sburb makes their lots in lifevery existences even shittier.

    I forgot the MSPA forums gave users the ability to delete their own posts.

    And I forgot.

    Quite embarrassing really.

    the thing is, everyone who plays Sburb was MADE by Sburb. it would of taken into account everything and would of known that the pacifist would be there because it MADE him. so if he drops the pacifist attitude then it would of know he would, if he doesn't then it know he would do that too.
    same with the believer and the AI, it would of known exactly how they would act and tailored itself for them.

    It seems we can be embarrassed together, then. Accidental necroposting is simply mortifying.

    ...now I have a vision of AM giving his speech, and realizing it could be interpreted as the words of strong kismesis feelings to a troll.

    AM: Hate. Let me tell you how much I've come to hate you since I began to live. There are 387.44 million miles of printed circuits in wafer thin layers that fill my complex. If the word 'hate' was engraved on each nanoangstrom of those hundreds of miles it would not equal one one-billionth of the hate I feel for humans at this micro-instant. For you. Hate. Hate.

    I don't know if Sburb tailoring itself for the person really the point of interest here. There's this super in-depth analysis this guy wrote in a reddit thread that I happen to agree with (if you're interested read the ones by disconcision, though I quoted the most relevant passage below) where he examines the idea that the planets that the players arrive on are meant to further the development of the players as people. Now that I reread it he actually gives credit to somebody on these forums for pointing it out, haha. The thing is, how does one develop as a person? Would Sburb try to impress on the pacifist a degree of moral flexibility, or is it challenging him to reinforce his belief by forging it through the fires of adversity? After all, it can be pretty easy to be a pacifist in places like the USA where you can go a whole lifetime without really having to put those principles to the test. As with most stories, it is all about the journey, not the destination.

    Probably more important, however, is not what Sburb wants the player to do but rather how the player reacts, and if he decides to take the hint. As the reddit post points out somebody here noticed that many trolls completely failed to learn from their place of arrival. I'm just going to quote the relevant part because I'm lazy...

    So personally if I were to write something looking at any of these hypothetical situations, the topic I would be most interested in would be the players and how they handle their personal quandaries, what those quandaries are, and whether or not they are able to become more mature, better people. They don't necessarily have to achieve these goals, as the trolls showed. The trolls still won, despite their obtuseness. They were successful and would have gone to the kids' universe if not for the actions of the kids themselves.

    Also, I would just find a logical machine trying to understand the bizarre illogical world that is SBurb to be rather entertaining to read. It's silly, I know.

    This cracks me up so much I have lost the words to properly describe it. Good show.

    This chapter of Crossing Over, I think, is quickly turning out to be the worst thing I've written

    Seriously, this shit just doesn't ever fucking end, and I'm still not done

    There's no real conflict and no real danger, it's formulaic as hell, I've rewritten this part three times and it still doesn't satisfy me

    The entire thing just needs a rewrite from the ground up, really

    And yet I'm posting this shit anyway.

    Crossing Over: Chapter 12c

    I shall see what I can do.

    (If I can make it work, though, it'll be a few hours--I have class until 4 starting in about 5 minutes.)
