hussie is a genius.
it’s amazing how far Homestuck has come- and holy shit man, you came this whole way with it! but why…?
i have a theory why, actually.
have you ever heard of the “Agatha Christie Code”? for people who have no idea who Agatha Christie is: she’s widely considered one of the world’s best selling novelists.
the Christie Code is the theory that the main reason her books were popular (and still are, 25+ years after her death) is that they are literally addictive
so what is the Code, and how does it relate to Homestuck?
the Code consists of a few elements key to her writings:
- lengthy establishing descriptions at the beginning of the book
- quick dialogue and action towards the middle and end of the book
- simple phrasing, and a lot of repetition of both words and themes
- but most importantly… the use of 9+ characters
why 9 characters?
according to a documentary about Christie’s methods, the human mind can only devote focus to between 5 and 9 things/people/plotlines at a time.
past that, the reader will go into an actual unfocused hypnotic trance. they become overloaded with the cast of characters, and the intricate red herrings, and all the repeated words, and soon they are motherfuckin entrenched in that bitch
look back at that list of elements ^ and you’ll realize that every single one of them applies to Homestuck: the simple format catches you, the shit getting real keeps you, the memes indoctrinate you, and Hivebent seals the deal.
i repeat: hussie is a genius.
