  • Sburb Logo After short introductions of Jane and Jake, a wild character select screen appears. With it, the Reader would be able to select all four new characters, that is to say, if post-Scratch Mom and Bro were introduced.
  • The following happens if you choose Jane:
  • Sburb Logo Jane's Fetch Modus, Recipe, and Strife Specibus, spoonkind, are revealed. Then Jane looks out of her window and notices her Dad captchalogue his car and wash it, giving her an opportunity to sneak out.
  • Sburb Logo Jane gets on BettyBother, a Crockercorp product, and is pestered by Jake, who needs to ask Strider a question related to his project with his pen pal; he needs to send the Bunny today. They both agree that they are busy and have things to do.
  • Sburb Logo Crockercorp undergoes a rebranding at 11:11, changing the spoon logo to a fork, the imperial logo of the Condesce. Jane's weapon is similarly changed so that it can toggle between spoon and fork.
  • Sburb Logo When Jane is about to rummage through her chest, she is pestered by uranianUmbra, who seems to know a lot about the overarching plot and expresses hope that Jane will succeed, suggesting she check the inscription on her book downstairs for proof.
  • Sburb Logo Jane goes back to her chest and captchalogues the contents. Jane decides to mess with the Gristwidget 12000 which, to her, converts her items to "stupid things that look like Gushers". She tests it with the Dunce Cap for the price of 10 Boondollars (which she has plenty of as an heiress of Crockercorp).
  • Sburb Logo Jane dons her Unreal Heiress Thoughtwave Tiaratop and is contacted by Lalonde.
  • Sburb Logo During the conversation, Jane notices that the mailbox flag is up.
  • Sburb Logo After putting on a Clever Disguise, Jane prepares to sneak downstairs and collect the mail without Dad noticing.
  • Sburb Logo Just as she is about to leave her room, the wild character select screen reappears, offering the option to switch to Jake or to end.
  • The following happens if you choose Jake:
  • Sburb Logo Jake equips his Pistolkind to his Strife Specibus, then examines and captchalogues his holster belt.
  • Sburb Logo Jake then begins kissing his posters, which happen to be blue-skinned girls just like Grandpa's, but quickly stops in embarrassment.
  • Sburb Logo A package Jake has been working on is revealed. We already have a very clear image of what it is and what it does. Though, Jake seems to think Jade and John exist in the early 20th century, while they are really from the pre-Scratch 2009.
  • Sburb Logo Jake then examines the bunny, but complains that he's out of Uranium, having used all he had to power his transmaterializer.
  • Sburb Logo Jake captchalogues the bunny in his Puzzle modus. He then comments that there is a massive (currently unknown) object taking up most of the space inside the modus, and says that it might come in handy someday.
  • Sburb Logo Jake is pestered by uranianUmbra.
  • Sburb Logo Jake dons all of his computers, because he has a billion computers like any sensible person.
  • Sburb Logo Jake attempts to pester Strider, but realizes that he is talking to Strider's Auto Responder.
  • Sburb Logo Jake removes all of his computers, using only the Skulltop instead, and pesters Jane and they have a conversation that is also seen from Jane's perspective.
  • Sburb Logo Jake goes downstairs, notices that the Brobot, a gift from Strider, is outside. He is also pestered by the Auto Responder again.
  • Sburb Logo Just as Jake is about to walk towards the Egress Case, the wild character screen reappears, offering the option to switch to Jane or to end.
  • Sburb Logo After playing around with Jane and/or Jake, we take the point of view of Jane, who has just exited her room and is looking around.
  • Sburb Logo Jane notices that the front door is blocked with a refrigerator and the windows are locked, and speculates that the back door is blocked too.
  • Sburb Logo Jane then decides to "consult" with the stuffed remains of Poppop Crocker, holding a copy of Sassacre's Text. She would prefer to have him stay in the attic, but dad tells that by just calling him that she is not ready yet.
  • Sburb Logo Jane then takes the text (accidentally tearing Poppop's arm off in the process), and reads the inscription.
  • Sburb Logo Jane bothers Jake to tell him about the dream she had the night before: While she was exploring Prospit, Jane found a funeral procession being held, with the Prosptians grieving the loss of "the Page" – that is to say, Jake's dream self.
  • Sburb Logo Jake exits his room and examines the surrounding pumpkin patch, noting that he wasted uranium appearifying them from somewhere. This presumably explains why, in the pre-Scratch session, Jade's pumpkins kept disappearing.
  • Sburb Logo Jake is oblivious to something and is pestered by Lalonde, who agrees to let him have a copy of her downloaded Sburb, on the condition that he uses it on his "trusty old husktop."
  • Sburb Logo Jake resumes his robroquest when he is pounced upon by a creature that resembles Karkat's lusus.
  • Sburb Logo Jake begins to Strife with the fauna, eventually doing "the thing where you fly through the air shooting two guns at once," which isn't that big a deal for him to perform. Eventually, Jake scares the beast away back into the jungle. He then accidentally shoots one of the "sweet little fairy bulls."
  • Sburb Logo Unknown to him, Jake is being watched by the robot he was looking for.
  • Sburb Logo Meanwhile, Jane activates a homing device on the bunny Strider built for her as a plan of last resort. The robot bunny slices its way out of Poppop's head with a sword.
  • Sburb Logo Back on the island, Jake exits the forest to "behold [a] zoological splendor." He then goes over to the Frog Temple, and is promptly ambushed by a creature that looks like Gamzee's lusus.
  • Sburb Logo Jane assesses the damage to Poppop Crocker, who has now scratched his eye on the fireplace poker as Huggy Bear stands nearby. She sticks the head onto the poker and slots it into place, and is then contacted by Strider (the real one this time), who is curious as to why said rabbit has been activated.
  • Sburb Logo Jane and Strider continue their conversation, discussing his "superstar brother". He mentions that he knows his bro is not his real brother, a fact which Jane dismisses as an "ironic lesson in science fiction".
  • Sburb Logo Strider and Jane discuss Huggy Bear, and he points out that the bunny should have been renamed by now. Jane decides to rename it Li'l Sebastian. He then reveals that the gift was not merely ironic, but that inside the metal shell is, in fact, the real bunny from Con Air, which he stole from his bro's museum of film memorabilia.
  • Sburb Logo Li'l Seb continues his destruction in the background as Strider gives Jane a similar speech to the one Rose gave JohnSburb Logo on being the team leader. He then assures Jane that he "will be the unseen hand whose nimble digits are behind every subtle twitch in [their] session's bulbous foam ass", and also offers to create an auto responder for her, requiring only a captcha of her brain. Jane declines, but does say she'll take him up on his offer of a (hopefully not literal) puppet ass rescue if necessary. She then ceases bothering him.
  • Sburb Logo Jane commands Li'l Sebastian to lift the fridge, which he does so easily. The bunny finds a note under the fridge from Dad, congratulating Jane on being able to lift the fridge, then asks her to put the fridge back down. Jane promptly ignores this.
  • Sburb Logo Jane commands Li'l Sebastian to put the fridge down, which only results in him smashing the fridge through a wall and Dad noticing it.
  • Sburb Logo Jane promptly throws her hat down in disgust, and both she and the hat level up.
  • Sburb Logo Meanwhile, Jake starts running from the sea-goat lusus. He is then set upon by a swarm of fairy-bulls, who are "pissed off about the one [he] killed earlier," but are really just attempting to love on him (as seen by the hearts floating around the fairy-bulls in the panel).
  • Sburb Logo Jake is confronted by the sea-goat, having been knocked to the ground by the swarm of amorous fairy-bulls.
  • Sburb Logo The goat is distracted by the Brobot bleating like a goat...Sburb Logo
  • Sburb Logo...for strategic and ironic purposes, cutting off the sea-goat's head in the process.
  • Sburb Logo Jane runs quickly to the mailbox to grab the discs while Dad witnesses the carnage wrought by Li'l Sebastian. However, as she gets the mail, she gets caught in an explosion as Dad witnesses the event in horror.
  • Sburb Logo The curtains close on Act 6 Act 1.


The following events are not part of an official act of Homestuck, but constitute a short epilogue to the events in the first sub-act of Act 6.

  • Sburb LogoHussiebot announces that one of the curtains is down, and five more are ready to be set up, meaning there will be five more sub-acts.
  • Sburb LogoHussiebot becomes aware that not all of his characters are dead and not all of his story is fucked up, and remembers the Yellow YardSburb Logo, also remembering how short of a time period a nanosecond is.
  • Sburb LogoHussiebot hurries up to the Yellow Yard, but realizes that even with his robotic author avatar he can't do anything, and instead just levels John and Jade up.
  • Sburb Logo John and Jade then reap the spoils of their level increase, but instead of boondollars ("That shit is for babies now."), they receive the GIFT OF GAB badge, which removes the necessity of a chat client or any other medium to talk to others.
