omg void invisibility is canon
Also, because I've been urged by friends (no, just one friend, and plus I'm a push-over) I've got a tumblr now (well had one, but I'm being PRESSURED REALLY HARD into using it (<- okay not that hard)) for Equiquest stuff.
Excuse the name, it shares half of my own. Trish and I will just start posting little things when we do an update, just so people can notice it, if they miss the renamed topic title and the thread bumping. Plus, it might be fun?? Anywho, the official Equiquest tumblr is a-go! Let's see where this goes.
Today we have a very short update. But watch out, 'cause we're lining up a bunch of pictures for some upcoming fleshy action. And after tomorrow's update, we have little idea of what will happen next, so even if you don't feel you have much to contribute, or if you've only read the latest update, please don't hesitate to drop us a command, y'all.
> Nepeta: Wake up.
You do so.
You ran all across the Alternian countryside, saved your dying best friend, and woke up...only to find yourself in the middle of a big purple Equius nightmare.
And now you're...you're in, uh.....um.
So this is what you get for going through all that shit.
> Nepeta: Look closer.
What the hell? Is that the twisted story version of your principal having tea time with your stupid snarky friend?
Leafsprite: Decide you'd like to cuddle with the big white ball man.
Doc Scratch (whom we cannot control but can suggest things too): Sense a disturbance in the force.
Kanaya: Whip out them troll board games. Also, ask Nepeta how and why she changed her hair to that unnaturally bright yellow.
Nepeta: Wonder how you ended up in a canyon when you distinctly remember crashing in to a forest. Also celebrate your luck at not having broken any bones in the fall.
A couple of fanfics I made...
> Kanaya: Put the decal on Doc Scratch.
> Nepeta: Grab it. You deserve it.
Begin DEATHSTUCK: THE GAME.
Welcome to DEATHSTUCK: THE GAME. In this game, players have the ability to choose HEADS on the GAME BOARD, and through choosing them can BECOME THE OWNER OF SAID HEAD, but only TEMPORARILY. After you have been ones of these HEADS, they will become MARKED OUT and you will be UNABLE TO BE THEM (FOR THE TIME BEING).
The rectangle near the bottom is a pile of FRIEND CARDS. You may use one of your FRIEND CARDS to become PRETTY MUCH LITERALLY ANYONE IN ANY UNIVERSE, EVEN IF THEIR HEAD HAS BEEN MARKED OUT. You may be barred from using a FRIEND CARD to be a SPECIFIC CHARACTER if becoming said CHARACTER is JUST TOO SUPERFLUOUS AND STUPID AN IDEA. You have FIVE FRIEND CARDS.
By selecting the SHOP option, you can go to the SHOP, where you can buy things such as additional FRIEND CARDS. By selecting the BREAK ROOM option, you will be sent to the BREAK ROOM. Going to the BREAK ROOM costs A MILLION POINTS. It DOES NOT COST ANYTHING to go to the SHOP.
You have earned ONE MILLION AND SEVEN POINTS, but WE DON'T KNOW WHY.
The goal of the game is to determine the identities of the FRIEND OF SILVER and the FRIEND OF GOLD. Through becoming the OWNERS OF THESE FLOATING HEADS and/or EFFICIENT USAGE OF FRIEND CARDS, you must USE CONTEXT CLUES and APPROXIMATE KNOWLEDGE to FIND THE ANSWER.
Okay. WHO do you wanna be first, guys.
We need some mad user input on this thing. It would also help and/or be exciting if you mentioned what said character might be doing at that time.
Okay, let me see if I understand this game correctly. This stuff takes place, right? It's not just an imaginary game?
> Hussie: Scheme with Professor Honeybee and Rufio.
> Eridan: Tell Treridan about the cartoons, whether he wants to hear it or not.
> Future Troll Karkat: Unwittingly set up a memo.
> John: Take advantage of this memo to contact a troll who is or will be in the game. Have them alchemize together your cellphone with a fourth wall and a door, and also make the same combination but replacing the door with your glasses. Finally, get them to send you this sweet pair of HOMESTUCK-GLASSES through your phone. You now have a way to see the parts of Homestuck that Andrew might not want you to see. Of course this plan is ridiculously convoluted and probably won't work, but hey, how bad can the consequences be?
> Jack Vantas: Accidentally phone up Spades Slick, have no idea how this happened.
> Nepeta: Deliberate.
You humbly request to take the first turn.
Really, you'd rather not be playing such an idiotsdumbgame - but hey, what if somehow Andrew is giving you unlimited sway over the lives of others? What advantage could that possibly give anyone besides yourself? And exactly how suspicious should you be?
> Be Professor Honeybee.
You are Professor Honeybee, and you are SAD because you just got LAID OFF from your DREAM JOB. Now you have sworn REVENGE against the PRINCIPAL behind it.
okay, this is kind of hilarious. this idiot can't be the teacher I know and love.
We Will Miss The Matineeeeee
What do you do!?
> PH: Scheme with Hussie and Rufio.
I'M HYPED. 8TT
> Be Human Eridan.
alright, guess this looks promising. wait, is that a 2012 phone?!?! those dont even exist yet!
I Think It Is!!
Wait What The Heck Is A Hummins
You are now Eridan Ampora, just chillin' at home. You decide that now is the PERFECT TIME to test the limits of Troll Eridan's - or, as you like to call him, TRERIDAN'S - personality. You only hope that he enjoys cartoons with as much PASSION and FERVOR as you do.
> Eridan: Drop it in.
> Be John.
You are now John Egbert. You just got BEAT UP by Roxy Balboa, the self-proclaimed TUFFEST GAL IN TH SCKOOLHAUS, and NOBODY IN THE HOUSE NOTICED. You're feeling pretty horrible right about now!
john? roxy? this raises more questions than it answers.
Sh Nep Sh Nep He Cannot Hear You
But before you put yourself in the INFIRMARY and FILE A LAWSUIT you're going to test out a complex plan by contacting a particular CHARACTER using your state-of-the-art COMPUTER.
> Nepeta: Be Terezi in her house doing SOMETHING.
Be him doing that.
> Nepeta: Be Jack Vantas doing whatever.
You are now Jack Vantas taking a nap before tonight's big midnight ride.
> Kanaya: Be Troll Karkat (Tkrarkat????) doing something absurd
> Lord English: Attempt to come out of Doc Scratch, killing him.
Oh dear reader, you aren’t playing the Deathstuck board game with us, are you? You aren’t allowed to choose characters that aren’t on the game board. Besides, you can’t use a Friend Card because you don’t own any.
> Leafsprite: Notice that your turn is near, choose Dr. Scratch in order to save him.
> Dr. Scratch: Are you okay?
You are trapped within the endless void that is DOC SCRATCH’S ENORMOUS HEAD.
> Nepeta: Answer.
You can’t. Your fingers go right through the phone! It seems somebody went ahead and stole your phone’s FUNCTIONAL DREAMS! That BASTARD! Goddamn ghostphone is completely useless. Guess normal replies are out from now on.
There you go, a picture of a young starlet's dreams and hopes getting crushed by an alien. Thanks for 50,000 views! Stop looking at this thing, guys! You're gonna make me get a huge ego and act like an unrepentant douchebag!

> Nepeta: Rose has given you inspiration. Let's be bold.
> Nepeta: Be Past Kanaya. Like, approximately during the time when Nepeta was fighting a Drone. Remember that? Yeah.
And since then, her intelligence has decreased tenfold.
> Equius: Finish -alizing.
You have been teleportalied near a great basin of fried rice! It seems that you've gotten yourself chin-deep in GOAT TERRITORY. The morning sun is fast approaching.
> Equius: Spot your ally.
> Equius: Beit up a gote.
> Equius: Be Jeffy Goat.
You are JEFFY GOAT, AGE 29. You spend your days working at the WATCH FACTORY and watch your nights circle the drain at the GAMBLING HALLS. You just haven't been the same after PAULA-ANNE, the love of your life, PASSED AWAY a few summers back.
Ever since that night you've just been spinning your wheels, you feel, JUST AMBLING THROUGH LIKE SOME OLD GOAT. On the weekends you think about your late girlfriend and your UNBORN KID IN HER STOMACH. You were going to call him GEORGY GOAT. Often on these sorts of days you drift into thought of Paula-Anne's HOT SISTER DORIS, who only pays mind to the RICH GOATS. That's when you feel it. All the luck, all the scum, and everything else between you and a woman you know you'll never truly love.
How much longer can all this spinning continue?
> Jeffy Goat: Face the biggest shock of your life.
HEY! THAT'S NOT JEFFY GOAT; I'M JEFFY GOAT!!
This sure is uncanny eh?
Wait, alchemy doesn't work like that. She wouldn't need to literally combine the fourth wall with anything, she'd just have gotten its code punched into a card and then punched it again with whatever she's combining it with. 0_0
Anyways, let's see...
Roboradia: You're a robot and they tied you up with ropes. You were strong enough to punch through your own metal in canon, I think you're strong enough to tear apart a few ropes. Do so.
A couple of fanfics I made...
> Equius: Shed your goat exterior.
> Equius: Charge your shadowy arrows.
Meanwhile, upon the fried rice cliff...
A young lady is teetering dangerously over the precipice of millions of gallons of fried rice.
> Aradiabotsprite: Break out of the ropes. You're super-strong, remember?
Kyaaaaah! Goatsy is no happy of this! You wa unable to escape. Waaaaaa, what horror!
Wait, murderer? How would they...
No, stop that question right now missy. To understand their understanding of the robot, first we must go back thousands of years...
Okay, I guess we're good now.
Yes. She was prophesized as a great murderer of consorts. I hope you're happy now.
> Equius: Begin dashing rescue.
> Aradia: Appear anyway.
> Equius: Reflect a little bit.

Okay, excuse accepted. *shrug* I'll buy it.
No commands right now, I've got limited time here. Sorry!
A couple of fanfics I made...
> Nepeta, Kanaya and Doc Scratch: Reap spoils.
For viewing Equius' heart-racingly insightful rescue, your DEATHSTUCK TEAM has earned ONE MORE POINT.
This point has unlocked an achievement: [S] Page 1! Now you can see a SEEMINGLY-UNSPECIFIED [S] PAGE!
> Rose: Share your thoughts.
What could work, Rose (you) mean(s)? This?
But you'll embarrass yourself in front of the guys!
He's probably venting over the fact that he has no face to call his own.
DO I DISGUST YOU, ROSE LALONDE?
I Wanna Scream Too
Sure but what did Rose have in mind?
Okay, you get her. You'll spend that [S] on something useful, don't Rose worry.
> Nepeta: Use the [S] command.
It was an Aradia [S] this whole time.
NEXT TIME: [S] COMMAND. Give us a day and we'll have it finished. We've had this one on the back-burner for a few weeks and it's ready to go into your mouths.
FLESH PEDGE 5 I THINK
This was a flesh that I'd wanted to do for about two months or so. I can't give a difinitive reason why, exactly, but it was very fun in the end. We were actually stockpiling stuff for it for the last two weeks, so we only had to finish stuff up before posting it tonight.
Credits for the song go to Eric "Jit" Scheele.
Okay, so as far as I can understand Aradia was sucked in too the comic (in the future), the police and Handmaid are outside Rose's house (which apparently Aradia and Terezi are visiting), and some... brown... THING is up on a tree.
Now, what is really plaguing my mind is this- did the sprites just combine, or did frog-Aradia prototype the robo-Aradia? Is prototyping a sprite with a sprite even possible?
Also it should be purple. Blue+Red=purple.
A couple of fanfics I made...
Yo peeps! We REALLY need some requests. Even the dumbest, most half-assed-est request will do, because our story has always been kind of aimless.
> Aradia: Gather together the things you might want to bring into Homestuck, like maybe a magic seeing-rock or some pruning shears. These are just ideas, you should take what you'll really need. You're short on time though, so Careful What You Pack.
(Extra points if she challenges Hussie to a game)
