I just wish thirteen year old girls looked like Vriska five years ago. Yes, complete with gray skin and horns.
Fascinating. Tell me about your mother.

It's the origin of the phrase, "striking a chord".
Basically, it's like if someone tugs on your heart strings, it means they've played a chord that resonates with your heart. An emotional syncronization, if you pardon the less-than-apt metaphor.

Why doesn't Homestuck focus more in Vriska?
I mean seriously, we get more Gamzee than Vriska now...
If you arrange every panel of homestuck in a mosaic 1025 panels wide, you will find that it forms a portrait of Vriska.

I just looked up cuttlefish. Turns out they sometimes eat each other. And have green-blue blood. And have three hearts. And see about eight times better than most creatures. And their eyes are Ws
FEFERI IS KANAYA (because vampire) IS TEREZI (because teal blood) IS SOLLUX (because three lives) IS VRISKA (because vision 8fold) IS ERIDAN (because W) IS NEPETA (because tranistive property of Nepeta) IS LORD ENGLISH (because shut up).
I will throw rice at you so hard. You have no idea how hard, you will all be saying "ow, I wish that fat fuck wasn't throwing the rice so gog damned hard, how the fuck does he even throw rice that hard with those weak-ass noodle arms?"
Other people will be looking on, saying "man, calm down, it's just rice. You need to chill your punk ass down," and I'll be all "NOOOO! MUST THROW RICE! YEEARGH!"
Also quotes, but of the "Oh my god everything makes sense now!" kind.

He knows that killing off the dream-kids before they can God Tier will make things much more one-sided. Derse-sided, specifically.
Sorry if this was obvious to everyone else.
I'm not sure it is that complicated. Ignoring Jack and the Midnight Crew the game would still be locked into a stalemating cold war. Each side would get the same upgrades. I believe Jack is Sburb's chaos causing construct designed to break up the stalemate. Hussie used the example of Bowser in Super Mario games when describing Jack and other constructs. They follow a programming. Outside of player induced changes of plans they would do the same thing over and over, same core personalities until player events forces changes.
* PM's interactions show that Jack Noir regularly sends low level minions and others on assassination attempts attempts.
* Judging by his lack of prototyped clothes with meeting Karkat, it looks like he and the BQ always get in a fight over wearing silly outfits.
* Judging by Karkat's introduction to Jack, Jack encounters a kid and stabs them. It should be on one of their worlds.
- If Kid survives he adjusts his plans and activates the Regicide Quest against the Black Queen. (Remember, he stabbed Karkat).
- If Kid dies, he shrugs and continues on with his programming of hunting down all the players.
- In this regard I think Jack servers as Sburb's "enrage" timer. You aren't leveling fast enough on your planets? Jack kills you. Taking too long to even get into the game (supposed to start playing at 13, not 15.5 silly alpha kids)? Jack kills you.
* Letting Jack get a ring speeds up the game considerably. Bec Noir is a threat because you aren't supposed to prototype the first guardian. There looks to be a window of time kill him without this messing the game up beyond repair:
- If Jack get the ring because you haven't leveled enough after starting the quest, he kills you for going too slow.
- Considering Jack killed the BK and the game continued, this may or may not be a hard enrage. If so, this is another you fail Sburb by going too slow.
TL, DR: Jack is Sburb's "You are taking to long. WIPE! " mechanism. The alpha kids are 2.5 years late getting into Sburb so Sburb is wiping the raid.

Dude killed monsters everyday in order to feed an even bigger monster. He literally held his species survival in his hands at 6 sweeps, and no one was really worried because he made killing giant troll-eating monsters look that easy. They mistook personality for skill, and one thing he had a lot of was skill. He was studying conquerors and shit at that age too. His desk was full of war campaign maps. tool or not the man had shit locked down.
He was also one of the most fashionable trolls and his pants were hands down the best. And he pioneered wearing scarfs constantly, and pulling it off with ease. And a cape that makes you more badass when you take it off? Pure style.
Before Sgurb he was in the top 4 strongest trolls easy, along with Sollux,Vriska, and Equius (and Vriska is questionable since she could not control her dice back then).
And he went through the entire game without upgrading shit, while fighting a planet full of things trying to kill him that scared everyone else off with how fucking strong they are.
And he killed them all in a month.
After this he finally gets an upgrade and casts fucking magic spells stronger than sollux's eyelasers.
No matter what your opinion, the man was badass, and even if you dont respect him you must acknowledge that.

One day when young to the plains of Com'yc Descu'Sion, genteelGunslinger came across a small hole in the ground. He wasn't sure if he could fit his whole body in, so he stuck his head in.
A voice called up, "Who blocks the sky?"
"Someone is down here?" GG wondered incredulously. As the inspiration for the tales of Indiana Jones, Bing Crosby was known to never fear adventure. He pulled his head out of the hole and retrieved his pick from his pack. A few swift strokes allowed him to hop down into the darkness.
A hand grabbed his and pulled him up. "I am Everanix. Welcome to the cult of Vriska." cute of Vriska
"Who are you? I mean, I know your name. But why are you living in a tiny hole in the ground? This doesn't seem like much of a place for a cult."
"I thought it was a pipe. I wanted to flyyyyyyyy!"
GG, vaguely disconcerted, retrieved his lighter. "What are you, that you could fit into such a small hole?"
"I am Vriska." Before he could click the flaring device, Everanix flashstepped it out of his hands and held the flame to a torch. GG shuddered as he heard choruses of, "I am Vriska" echoing out beyond the feeble light. He heard a skittering as little girls with grey skin and horns crawled along the walls towards him.
"I'm not sure if I'm okay with this."
"I'm sorry if our appearance frightens you. We can assume our normal faces, if that would better please your honour." A voice from the far end of the cave, which seemed to be over a hundred metres in length.
What we're reading right now is not simply character development, but an elaborate deconstruction and mockery of the fanfiction and shipping community. Which would be all fine and dandy if hivebent wasn't already the same thing.
Ah, but you see, the current character development is not simply '[additionally] an elaborate deconstruction and mockery of the fanfiction and shipping community', it is actually additionally additionally a meta-cerebral interrogation and exploration of the elaborate quadrant-ed fanfiction and shipping community of which Hivebent is the genesis point and Homestuck is the central locus. Which would all be fine and dandy if it weren't for Tumblr but seriously.
Someone needs to make a Homestuck clock that has times such as "dead kids" and "you're a moron", among other things.
Or a watch, so then when someone asks you the time you can be like "it's a quarter to dead kids" and they'll look at you like: O____O".
