Delicious plot dumps if I say so myself.

EDIT (12/14/2016): Shit, I forgot to rant about how weird illogical the supposed retconned version of the penis fight scene was. Better luck next time I guess.

EDIT (10/5/2019): After a really good streak for over 30 posts, this is where my Homestuck posts start reading like garbly nonsense again—makes sense because this is where my posting schedule started to slow WAY down.

Amidst all this hilarity, if you stop to pay attention to things a whole bunch of stuff is happening.

Act 6 Act 1, Part 4 of 4

Pages 4227-4284 (MSPA: 6127-6184)
