We didn’t have enough d&d pieces #dungeonsanddragons #mlp

… I have no one to play dnd with. So I taught my little cousin (4 at the time) how to play MLP Tabletop. She calls it “The Pony Dice Game!” Her reaction to finding a giant sloth blocking the road and having to find a way to make it move?
Her: “I kick it to make it move.
Me (DM): 0_0 Uh…

Her: Do I roll the dice now?” 
Me: 0_0 Um… yes… the triangle one…
I was not expecting this from a kid who is only allowed to watch Playhouse Disney and Sprout TV. My entire planned campaign story was almost derailed. 0_0;

HOMESTAR RUNNER: A BEGINNER’S GUIDE
The year is 2003. It is a kinder time, a simpler time.
Every single one of your classmates knows how to draw Trogdor the Burninator - first, you draw an S, then you draw a more different S.
"Everybody to the Limit" is a staple at middle school dances.
Your best friend’s little brother owns a plush The Cheat, and you can kick it, and it makes noise.
The year is 2003, the golden age of Homestar Runner.
Basically, every online content creator, every webcomic artist, every YouTube entertainer, owes Homestar Runner a shitload. 
Once upon a time, Homestar Runner was the definitive Flash site, an online destination for kids and immature grown-ups alike, fielding millions of hits and thousands of e-mails a day. 
Homestar Runner, the earnest athlete with a pure heart and a love for mankind, and his arch-nemesis, Strong Bad, a wrestler with a penchant for issuing snarky responses to fanmail, defined a generation through weird, surrealist Flash cartoons tinged with outdated pop cultural references.
Ten years later, there’s a new generation of Internetters who have never experienced the pure, unadulterated joy of H-Star-R, and that breaks my heart. 
So, here, I’ve compiled this beginner’s guide to Homestar Runner. Every cartoon on this list is shorter than five minutes. Get into it. Do yourself a favour.

((just had a major moment…))

I got ghostdunk into homestuck.  He met spacedhamlet through the ABT chat and introduced us.  Spam and I hit it off and now we live together. We met nostalgebraist at a Homestuck meetup in Brooklyn, and then Spam started dating munkamouse, who will be living with us starting in May, and so Homestuck basically accounts for like half of my core crew of drinking buddies.

Spam also introduced me to urbanAnchorite’s homestuck fanfic, and encouraged me to write my own, without which none of this mess would have happened.  Browsing the homestuck tag on tumblr (back when that was a sane thing to do) I found vastderp and his crew, who are an endless source of entertainment and inspiration.  I also came across a fic by the illustrious vintar, through whom I ended up finding most of my initial tumblr birdgang.    I got to meet (and temporarily house) the excellent mercurialmalcontent.  I got to experience snarp's terrible puns and chronicpnin's sick lit burns.  And that's just scratching the surface - I found most of my favorite tumblr people either through homestuck or via other homestuck fans.

So, y’know, the above pic is appropriate - without homestuck I just straight up would not have met a bunch of cool people who I really value. 

Homestuck got me into Fandom. I’ve been in fandoms before (long-time HP addict, former weeb, convention artist since 2003, sf/f nerd since birth) but never Fandom. I used to be the guy who genuinely thought there was no fanfic worth the embarrassment of reading it, unless it was to spork it. For some reason this bias never carried over to fanart, go figure.

Because of Homestuck, I reached out for the first time in my internet life and got involved with other people I knew only through our mutual love for a webcomic. It pulled me through a very scary, very unhappy mixed episode and gave me somewhere to channel my creativity that was JUST FOR FUN. And I played my little fandom bagpipes and ensnared all my friends, one by one, until they were in Fandom too. I was fairly merciless about it because for a few awful, lonely, completely bursting with excitement weeks,  I had NO ONE TO TALK TO ABOUT HOMESTUCK, but luckily the mind control worked, because now we all have favorite characters and ironic-but-not-really quadrants.

And then I started writing fanfic—ashamed and anonymous—and got hooked on that too. God damn it.

Homestuck made me admit I was mistaken about Fandom. I was right that we’re a bunch of obsessive dweebs who bore the fuck out of people who never saw the appeal, we’re wanky and full of tl;dr about cartoon characters, and frankly a sizable contingent of our populace is completely, embarrassingly bugfuck and should never be alone with children or small animals—but I was right for the wrong reasons. We’re all right, really.

… Well, it got me on Tumblr. Does that count?
