  • Sburb Logo The curtains of Act 3 open on Jane's land. See Myststuck for details.
    • Sburb LogoUU welcomes Jane to LOCAH, while avoiding questions about what her 'brother' has done to mess stuff up.
    • Sburb LogoRoxy berates Jane for losing her chance with Jake, despite her whole neighborhood being on fire.
    • Sburb LogoJake appears to be in trouble, as the volcano next to his house is exploding. By the end of their conversation, he is unconscious.
    • Jane solves the puzzles and enters the Maid's room.
    • Sburb Logo The action pauses to let players verify they have completed the first part of Myststuck, while offering a handy guideMspa icon for those who haven't.
    • Sburb Logo In the second part of Myststuck, Jane continues onwards and converses with Dirk's auto-responder before finding her house and sending it back to the surface. Upon arriving back at her house she discovers Gamzee wearing god tier clothes with Aradia's music box time machines.
  • Sburb Logo Jane approaches Gamzee and he attempts to sell her a number of interestingly colored potions.
  • Sburb Logo Jane becomes annoyed with Gamzee's potion selling and asks him to leave her property.
  • Sburb Logo Gamzee decides to respect Jane's wishes but declares she needs someone to be her guide and opens her fridge revealing the corpses of Tavros and Vriska before throwing both of them into Jane's sprite, much to her horror.
  • Sburb Logo This creates Tavrisprite, a combination of Tavros and Vriska's personalities.
  • Sburb Logo Tavrisprite starts to violently freak out, while Jane tries to calm it down. Jane fails to calm it down and it Tavrispl♉des.
  • Sburb Logo Tavros and Vriska appear on the Land of Sand and Zephyr.
  • Sburb Logo Tavros and Vriska share their experiences as Tavrisprite. While Tavros got to experience Vriska's self-confidence, she thought of it as a nightmare. They also both claim responsibility for Vriska's murder of Tavros. She also tells of her resent towards being chased by a freaky orange dude, and feels that cosmic forces are at work suppressing both her and Tavros's time in the spotlight. Vriska decides to "fuck shit up", and psychically forces Tavros to agree.
  • Sburb Logo Back on Earth, Jake has lost consciousness while exploring a time capsule beneath his island. In a dream bubble Jake remembers his thirteenth birthday in 2008, Dirk sends him the head of the Brobot, the last piece needed to complete it. The two discuss an upcoming movie called Avatar (which Dirk mocks and claims to have already seen), but when the conversation turns to how Dirk is able to build technology that even Jake's Grandma couldn't make, Dirk drops some not-so-subtle hints before revealing the truth: He and Roxy live in the year 2422 - or 411 P.C. (Post Condescension) - and are likely the last humans alive. They are able to communicate with Jane and Jake with a special version of Pesterchum provided by UU.
  • Sburb Logo Jake completes the Brobot, which goes into "Stalking Mode" and flees immediately. Dirk begins telling the story of how the Crockercorp Baroness launched her world domination campaign on November 11, 2011 and spent the next few decades solidifying her rule and crushing all attempt at rebellion. The Condesce's primary goal was to remake Earth into a new Alternia by populating it with Lusus and replacing humanity with cloned trolls, but the clones were destroyed by Gl'bgolyb's Vast Glub, so she imposed the troll reproduction system on humanity instead using lusidroids and robotic Imperial Drones. As the centuries passed, the human population was devastated through global flooding caused by the Condesce's melting of the ice caps, failed genetic experiments designed to give humans a Hemospectrum, and other atrocities committed by Earth's new ruler. Eventually, Dirk and Roxy were the only humans left. Dirk was forced to raise himself, while Roxy was raised by the Carapacians (the citizens of Prospit and Derse) in one of their floating colonies. Jake says he wants to fight the Condesce when she arrives in three years, but Dirk warns him that many others have tried and failed to defeat her.
  • Sburb Logo Dirk asks Jake what he remembers about his grandma. Jake tells the story of the night she died. He found her dead with three large fang marks and a trail of blood coming from the forest. Then Jake's house explodes and he is forced to burn his grandma's corpse and live in his room globe that he found in the forest and had survived the explosion mostly intact.
  • Sburb Logo Dirk recounts to Jake what he has heard of his grandma. She was raised by the Baroness along with Jane's grandpa, but ran away at a young age. She took the last name English because of its sensitivity to the Baroness. She starts a competing technology corporation heavily branded in ways to make the Baroness angry.
  • Sburb Logo Dirk explains that his and Roxy's ancestors followed in Jake's grandma's footsteps. Roxy's Mom wrote the Complacency of the Learned novels as an allegorical version of the Baroness's origins, while Dirk's Bro filled his Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff movie series with symbolism that mocked the Batterwitch and/or held a hidden message. Dirk offers to send Jake the entire series, noting that as part of the SBaHJ "experience", Bro made it all but impossible to actually buy the films.
  • Sburb Logo Dirk continues to explain how his Bro and Roxy's Mom knew of his and Roxy's arrival in the future and made preparations for their survival. The two went on to lead a rebellion against the Condesce that ultimately failed and ended with their deaths, but also killed many of the enemy's celebrity allies. He goes on to explain how the Condesce's plans were aided by sympathizers, including Guy Fieri, who would be promoted to the Supreme Court while the other Justices mysteriously vanished, leaving him the sole Justice of the Supreme Court until he eventually became High Chaplain of Interstellar War. In this capacity, Fieri caused the deaths of five billion people, making him "the third and final Antichrist." Eventually democracy collapsed with the last free election electing Presidents Jay and Dope to become the first and final Dual-Presidents of the United States.
  • Sburb Logo Dirk elaborates on how the nation descended into chaos after the Jay and Dope become the Presidents. After the Presidents set up death camps to eliminate all those deemed insufficiently mirthful, Bro had enough of them, and challenged them to a duel. He killed both of them, then rose into the air riding his Unreal Air, as he was never seen again.
  • Sburb Logo Dirk explains that Roxy's Mom was taking down the High Chaplain, Guy Fieri. She gouged his eyes with a pair of needles and rode his torso to the bottom of the bloody falls.
  • Sburb Logo Dirk speculates on what happened to the ancestors after they defeated the sympathizers. With her human puppet rulers dead, the Condesce seized control of the planet directly, and it is likely that Mom and Bro confronted and fought her. However, the Condesce's power levels would have been impossible to defeat in combat, so the two almost certainly died fighting.
  • Sburb Logo Dirk and Jake continue conversing, and Dirk soon reveals to Jake that he is in a dream bubble. He tells Jake that he is neither asleep nor Dirk's dead dream self, that he is a separate version of Dirk that exists only in Jake's mind. He goes on to explain that Heroes of Heart live a splintered existence and walk the path of self, and that Pages have a lot of untapped potential. A branch of one of the trees from Terezi's forest is seen crawling up the staircase, indicating that Terezi and Aranea may be visiting Jake's dream bubble.
  • Sburb Logo Projected Dirk asks Jake if he wants to discuss his feelings towards the real Dirk; Jake declines as he is uncomfortable talking about it. Projected Dirk informs Jake that the spider ghost will be arriving soon.
  • Sburb Logo Aranea arrives and Jake is too nervous to talk to her properly. The situation is worsened as Projected Dirk berates Jake for being so nervous and Jake yells at him, not realizing Aranea can't see the projection. Projected Dirk threatens to take control of Jake's mind and give him a bonerSburb Logo in front of Aranea if he can't start talking to her, but when Jake proves defiant, he leaves in disgust.
  • Sburb Logo Jack Noir awakens in a jail cell on Prospit. There are no useful items to escape with, what looks like a key on the ground is just a crude drawing, and there is definitely no Pumpkin - until one is appearified into the cell as food for Jack.
  • Sburb Logo Jack refuses to eat the pumpkin and looks outside, where he sees a single guard on watch. He shouts obscenities at the guard, but gets no reaction.
  • Sburb Logo Jack inspects the pumpkin and finds a message from the Courtyard Droll carved on its side. It tells him to look inside the pumpkin. Jack speculates it may be something useful, such as a bomb.
  • Sburb Logo Jack is unable to smash the pumpkin open because if it is a bomb it will explode. He searches for a carving apparatus to cut open the pumpkin. He breaks a spike off a wall outside his window, and uses it to carve open the pumpkin.
  • Sburb Logo Jack opens the lid to reveal... a whole bunch of knives and a "You're Welcome" note, courtesy of the Droll.
  • Sburb Logo Jack is angry that the Droll didn't send him a bomb, but decides he can still use the knives somehow.
  • Sburb Logo Jack empties the contents of the pumpkin onto the floor and finds a copy of Terrier Fancy magazine buried under the knives. Not wanting anyone to find the illicit material, he disguises the magazine by folding it into the shape of a knife.
  • Sburb Logo Jack goes to the window and throws a knife at the guard, hoping to get his attention. Unfortunately, the guard is lethally wounded and dies instantly, forcing Jack to come up with another plan.
  • Sburb Logo Jack examines the cell door and tries to open it by knocking on it. His fist accidentally goes through the door's window and knocks out a passing guard. The guard's keyring breaks, spilling keys all over the floor and out of Jack's reach.
  • Sburb Logo Jack tries to use one of the knives to pick up the keys, but is still unable to reach them. Another guard notices the escape attempt and radios for backup. Jack tries to persuade the guard to pick up the keys the other guard dropped, but his method of persuasion consists of stabbing the guard to death before he can get the keys.
  • Sburb Logo With his escape plan falling apart, Jack goes to the other side of his cell and finds one other thing worth noting, a transport pad used as a garbage disposal system. As he examines it, a baton-wielding Prospitian regulator enters the cell, ready to deliver a beating to the unruly prisoner.
  • Sburb Logo We attempt to be the other guy, but the other guy in this case is the dead guard outside, so the attempt ends quickly. We resume control of Jack, who has just killed the regulator and is currently slamming his face against the door.
  • Sburb Logo Jack decides to give the regulator a proper burial, severs his head and shoves it in the pumpkin. Jack modifies the transport pad to transport items to the Prospitian throne room and sends the pumpkin containing the head off. The pumpkin appears in front of the White Queen with a message from Jack to look inside.
  • Sburb Logo Jack hears the sound of footsteps behind him and turns around to see an army of regulators has entered the cell. We be the other guy while Jack is beaten by the regulators offscreen.
  • Sburb Logo Back in the Dream Bubble, Aranea has given a long winded introduction to Jake and reveals to him that she possesses psychic powers which are limited on humans to sensing their emotional state. She mentions that Jake feels shy and nervous, causing him to explain how his ranting to nothing was due to the Dirk projection. Aranea begins to explain the purpose of their meeting before asking about Jake's life, but as Jake begins to describe it the Dirk projection criticizes Jake on his dirty thoughts, much to Jake's embarrassment.
  • Sburb Logo Aranea finds one of Jake's Spider-Girl comics and a humiliated Jake tries to take it from her. She notices his obvious attraction to her and tells him that this isn't the first time someone has had flushed feelings for her.
  • Sburb Logo An embarrassed Jake attempts to wake up but Aranea calms him down by explaining how she feels about his feelings and goes on to explain the downside of her abilities and how some people abused them. Aranea continues to explain how the castes in the Hemospectrum worked on her iteration of Alternia and the responsibilities that came with caste and powers. Jake brings up how this was distorted in the scratched version of her planet by a demon when he wonders if it is the same one he is named after. Aranea, surprised that Jake knows of the demon, reveals she hadn't intended to tell him about that because it would overcomplicate things. Jake asks for clarification on the matter but is answered vaguely.
  • Sburb Logo Aranea reveals more about Lord English, informing Jake that the demon cannot be killed and exists in multiple incarnations across multiple universes. In the future, however, Jake may be able to defeat English in combat, which would be the first time such a victory will have occurred in any universe and a sign of hope that English may one day be destroyed forever. The two leave Jake's room and walk through Aranea's planet, and Aranea tells Jake that a relationship between them will never work since he is alive and she isn't. She suggests they could be together if he were to die before physically aging too much, but expresses her hope that it won't come to that and that Jake is able to live out his life to its fullest. Both are mocked by the Dirk projection. The two are going to visit Meenah, who abdicated her position as next-in-line to the throne of Alternia due to her distrust of authority. While living in exile on Alternia's pink moon, Meenah discovered the Sgrub game and tricked the 11 other trolls into playing it with her.
  • Sburb Logo On Derse, Jack's arrest has left the Draconian Dignitary in charge of all archagent duties. The Dignitary is tasked with managing all of Jack's paperwork - which he has no intention of doing - and stopping Dirk's attacks against the dark kingdom. Normally, he would use the Cubicle of Vigilance to locate the rogue Prince, but Dirk has destroyed it, forcing the Dignitary to go get help.
  • Sburb Logo After asking the Condesce for assistance, the Dignitary was offered command of Dronegorg, the flagship battlemech of the Alternian fleet.
  • Sburb Logo However the Dignitary declined, feeling it would be a bad look for him and that only "an utter fool" would enjoy it, and instead convinced the Condesce to hand over the Queen's Ring.
  • Sburb Logo The "Jack: Ascend." music plays as the Dignitary prepares to put on the ring, but he decides that the music is too dramatic, stops the record with a cigarette and puts on another, more casual record. "I'm a Member of the Midnight Crew" plays while several scenes that match the song's lyrics appear, some of which are from earlier in the comic. New scenes include Jade and Davesprite reading MS Paint Adventures together, Spades Slick reentering Hussie's apartment to drink some milk, Vriska punching Hussie in the face, Dirk and Roxy battling the Imperial Drones on Earth, and the Condesce with a mind-controlled God Cat in her lap. As the song ends, the Dignitary puts on the ring.
  • Sburb Logo The ring activates, and the Dignitary transforms into... himself.
  • Sburb Logo The Dignitary tests out his new abilities. He turns himself invisible, then dismisses the skill as a parlor trick that won't help him find Dirk. Instead, he unleashes the ring's full power: the Red Miles emerge from his hand and spread across Derse.
  • Sburb Logo On LOCAH, Jane searches for her missing Dad by looking for items he left behind. The trail appears to go cold after she finds his car, the last item that would have been in his possession, but Lil' Sebastian spots another clue nearby: Dad's wallet.
  • Sburb Logo Jane picks up the wallet and finds a note from Dad inside congratulating her on being strong enough to lift the piano. She assumes he meant to leave a more relevant note, but got them mixed up due to his always leaving notes for special occasions.
  • Sburb Logo Jane uses the wallet to retrieve the car, then gets pestered by the AR. It asks her to earn grist by destroying the car, and when Jane refuses, it tells her she must find some way of getting grist, such as fighting monsters or collecting relics, in order to level up and win the game.
  • Sburb Logo Jane captchalogues the nearby obelisk and converts it into a very large amount of Grist, accidentally sealing the crypt at the end of the trail in the process.
  • Sburb Logo Jane is again pestered by AR expecting to be told off but he informs he recorded the obelisk's captcha code and that the Grist can be reused to recreate it and to send Lil' Seb off to do it for her. Jane enquires about Dirk and Roxy who are under attack. AR informs Jane that the Condesce's assassination attempts are half-hearted as she needs them alive to play the game. AR suggests contacting uranianUmbra.
  • Sburb Logo Taking the AR's advice, Jane pesters UU and asks if Dad will be okay. UU tells her that she will see Dad again, but Jane notices that UU seems distracted. UU reveals that in her session, the clouds over Skaia are turning darker and undyingUmbrage is becoming more violent and uncooperative, seeing the game only as a means of escaping their home planet. UU fears that without his help, she will never be able to complete their session. UU and uu are playing an elaborate and complex game with each other; as part of this, both have renounced typing in their blood colors, but UU is a lime blood while uu has the mutant candy red blood. The lime bloods were hunted to extinction due to their extremely powerful abilities. Jane asks about how UU apparently lied about never meeting uu, but receives only an apologetic refusal to answer. UU plans to send Jane her juju, but it will only work if she also has her brother's juju, which she can get by beating him in their game.
  • Sburb Logo uu attempts to jeer Dirk while he is busy fighting the Drones and gets transferred to the AR. uu demands that Dirk draw him more pornography, but the AR refuses to comply and tells him to try jeering Dirk in the past.
  • Sburb Logo uu jeers Dirk in the past, threatening to kill UU's dream self if he doesn't get his porn, even though Dirk is willing to draw it for him. uu asks for pictures of Dirk kissing Jane, then Jake and Roxy getting married and having kids, and Dirk follows his commands while pointing out how the fairly tame pictures hardly qualify as pornography. In the present, Dirk gets pinned against the wall by one of the Drones and Sawtooth arrives at the fight.
  • Sburb Logo In the past, uu claims to have a twist ending planned to the game that Dirk can only learn about by continuing to play it, then starts making a series of requests depicting Jane and Roxy courting each other while continuing to insist that Dirk is near the breaking point in their game. This causes Dirk to start talking about boners, resulting in a picture of Nicolas Cage saying "boner"Sburb Logo. uu is made very uncomfortable by this and decides to end the game. In the present, Sawtooth saves his creator by unleashing a missile barrage that destroys all of the Drones.
  • Sburb Logo In the past, uu reveals that his twist ending has a second twist: Dirk won't learn what the twist is for another year. One year later, in the present, he messages Dirk and reveals the twist: he already killed his sister's dream self. Meanwhile, above Dirk, Red Miles start appearing, cast by Jack Noir's attempt to destroy the human universe's Genesis Frog.
  • Sburb Logo uu explains that he didn't personally kill UU's dream self, but bribed his session's version of Jack Noir into doing it for him after seeing how the post-scratch kids' Jack preemptively attacked the heroes. As his session's Skaia turns completely dark, uu claims he is about to win the game he and UU have been playing.
  • Sburb Logo Aranea takes Jake back to meet the others in the dream bubble, only to discover that they have started fighting. Terezi apologises for the others, while Aranea orders Meenah to drop the trident.
  • Sburb Logo Meenah drops the trident and Aranea takes it away from her, noting that she could probably make some money by selling a solid gold trident. Meenah is upset by the suggestion, and Terezi points out that most of the assembled players have enough money to buy it. Rose quietly explains to a confused Dave who Jake is supposed to be.
  • Sburb Logo Aranea attempts to talk to the group and is interrupted by a bitter Meenah, who is mad about having to spend the next several thousand years dead and bored. Karkat angrily interrupts their fighting to say that he doesn't care about the new trolls and only cares about the dream bubbles as a means of meeting his dead friends, then walks away from the group. Meenah expresses her approval of Karkat's personality while Dave asks Rose if they should wake up the sleepwalking Roxy.
  • Sburb Logo Rose answers saying that she believes Roxy hasn't woken before and thus might be a bad idea to wake her up. Dave questions the state Roxy seems to be sleeping in and wonders if she is drunk, which is confirmed by Rose. Dave asks how Rose can be sure and she begins to mention the doomed timeline from which Davesprite is from and how there wasn't much to do but plenty of alcohol, but Kanaya interrupts to find out what is going on, then suddenly Terezi calls them all over.
  • Sburb Logo Aranea and Terezi have been talking while the others were distracted by Roxy, and Aranea offers to repeat what she's been saying. Meenah is irritated by the offer, believing the others don't care about the story, but Aranea decides to keep talking anyway. Aranea begins to explain how Meenah and herself died, but the seadweller covers her mouth, next stating that she will cover the story in a more brief manner.
  • Sburb Logo Meenah reveals how the pre-scratch trolls died: The pre-Scratch Handmaid was activating the Scratch, which would wipe them from existence, but Meenah learned that they could keep existing in the dream bubbles if they died first. She then used a device that looked like the Tumor to blow up herself and the other trolls as the scratch began.
  • Sburb Logo Aranea criticizes Meenah's storytelling skills, noting that she left out all the events and relationships leading up to their deaths. To demonstrate, Aranea retells the stories of their post-scratch selves in Meenah's one-line, undetailed style. Meenah inquires about her own counterpart, the Condesce, and asks Aranea to retell her story in full.
  • Sburb Logo Aranea tells the story of how post-scratch Meenah became the Condesce, which Meenah enjoys enormously. Jake realizes that Meenah is the Batterwitch and tells the Dirk projection he wants to stop her from destroying humanity. Projected Dirk tells him not to, but Jake, who has completely misunderstood the situation and thinks that killing Meenah will prevent the human race from going extinct, ignores him and attacks her.
  • Sburb Logo Jake starts brutally punching Meenah and the others wonder if he's gone insane. Aranea attempts to explain that the Meenah he's attacking isn't the same one who drove humanity extinct, but the complexity of the matter makes it too confusing to properly explain, so she fails to stop Jake from continuing to attack Meenah. Terezi talks to the Dirk projection, as her mind powers make her the only person other than Jake who can interact with him, and the two point out the weirdness of their respective situations.
  • Sburb Logo Aranea hits Jake on the head with the trident, and the blow is strong enough to wake him up and force him out of the dream bubble. She asks if Meenah is okay, but Meenah has been so obsessed with the Condesce's coolness that she didn't even notice the attack. The Dirk projection is somehow still in the dream bubble even though Jake left.
  • Sburb Logo Jake wakes up beneath the island and sees that UU left a message while he was unconscious. UU says that uu has turned their game into a war and left her fearing for her life, so she has to start bending the rules in order to help the kids. She tells Jake to retrieve the weapons for the bunny from the time capsule, test its infinitesimalizer and monstrositifier, and make the delivery to ensure the timeline remains stable.
  • Sburb Logo With eleven minutes and eleven seconds remaining until the capsule opens, Jake decides to deploy the bunny and test its functions. He puts some fruit on the ground and Terry Kiser uses its green beam to monstrositify it.
  • Sburb Logo To test the infinitesimalizer, Jake pulls out the giant item clogging his sylladex: the other room globe from his house. Terry shrinks the globe and it rolls down a pit. Jake realizes that he needs the globe, but decides to wait for the flower to bloom before retrieving it.
  • Sburb Logo Jake watches as the flower opens and the four weapons are unveiled. He finds them unimpressive, then notices that in one hour, eleven minutes and eleven seconds, the capsule is set to open again. He grudgingly notes that he won't be around to see what comes out of it due to UU's game plan.
  • Sburb Logo Jake has Terry shrink the weapons down to a manageable size, then writes a letter to John (who he thinks is Jane's grandpa in the past), packs it with Terry and the weapons in a box, and prepares to sendificate the package to his grandma in the past (actually Jade in the pre-scratch universe).
  • Sburb Logo Jake sends Terry to Jade, and after writing her letter to John she has Becquerel use his powers to teleport the box into a mail plane flying over the island. The package gets delivered to John's house, and the story fast forwards through Terry/Liv's previously seen life in the pre-scratch universe before stopping at the events of Cascade, revealing that the bunny was destroyed during the Tumor's detonation. The second Dark Cage FlashSburb Logo appears as an Easter egg.
  • Sburb Logo Meanwhile uranianUmbra and undyingUmbrage continue playing their game of chess, both messaging each other in an unusual manner while instructing the other of their move. When UU believes she has defeated uu, uu reveals that he has disguised his king and queen as the other after convincing his "sister" to let him swap his king and queen at the beginning but only tricking her into believing he had done so. uu then proceeds towards victory until UU forfeits in anger.
  • Sburb Logo A Character select screen appears with all four kids able to be selected.
  • If Jane is selected:
    • Sburb Logo Lil' Sebastian returns with a new obelisk, allowing Jane to enter the door. As she prepares to enter and look for her dad, she is pestered by the AR, who tells her that if Dirk and Roxy don't enter the game soon, they will probably die. Jane installs the server client and becomes Roxy's server player, but Roxy isn't in her room. Jane zooms out and sees why: the Red Miles are attacking the carapacian colony.
    • Sburb Logo Jane starts deploying the initial devices so Roxy can enter the game as soon as she returns. After Jane has finished deploying, she notices that Lil' Seb is missing.
    • Sburb Logo Jane ignores the AR's requests to wait for Lil' Seb to come back and chases him through the door and onto a transportalizer. She ends up being sent to Derse, which is being destroyed by the Red Miles. Dirk's dream self is nearby, and both are shocked at the other's presence.
    • Sburb Logo Jane looks across the fiery chasm to find that Jake is on the other side.
    • Sburb Logo The character select screen returns.
  • If Jake is selected:
    • Sburb Logo Jake goes to retrieve the room globe from the pit and notices that at the bottom are two transportalizers, one purple and one yellow. He jumps down to the globe and retrieves the one item he needs from it: a fenestrated wall, which he has been told is very important. He is then contacted by the AR.
    • Sburb Logo The AR tells Jake that if Dirk doesn't enter the game soon he will die. Jake installs the sever client and becomes Dirk's server player. Jake zooms out to see ocean around Dirk's house is on fire. After Jake has finished deploying the devices he decides to use one of the transportalizers despite the advice of the AR.
    • Sburb Logo Jake transportalizes to Derse, and the AR criticizes his recklessness by telling him that there's no White Rabbit at the end of the rabbit hole. Jake ventures forward and sees Dirk, Jane, and Lil' Sebastian, who he mistakes for the White Rabbit.
    • Sburb Logo The character select screen returns.
  • If Dirk is selected:
    • Sburb Logo uu taunts Dirk by telling him he can't escape the Red Miles, also mentioning that the Miles attacking Earth were caused by Jack Noir, not the Dignitary. uu claims to have a present for Dirk as a thank-you gift for helping him make something in the past, but he demands that his "juju", Lil' Cal, be destroyed first. After Dirk refuses to destroy Cal, uu gives him the present anyway: a terrible drawingMspa icon of Dirk and uu together. Dirk mocks uu's poor drawing skills and ends the chat.
    • Sburb Logo The AR contacts Dirk to see if he is aware of the situation on Derse. Dirk mistakes the situation as the Red Miles, but the AR tells him to keep looking until Dirk spots Jane and Jake.
    • Sburb Logo The character select screen returns.
  • If Roxy is selected:
    • Sburb Logo After chasing Roxy around the colony, the Imperial Drones have withdrawn, allowing her to get as many Carapacians to follow her as possible. Roxy notices that while she has been busy, she has accumulated messages from multiple people. First she reads Jane's messages and finds out that Jane has connected to her. She then reads messages from the AR, who wants to know what she has been doing; Roxy informs the AR that she has been trying to save as many Carapacians as possible. The AR tells her that she is out of time and needs to return to her house, enter the game, and connect to Jake to allow him to enter too.
    • Sburb Logo Roxy gets cheered by UU, who wants to talk to her one last time before she blacks out the session. UU speculates that Roxy's void abilities may be directly linked to how intoxicated she is, then tells her more about the Red Miles and the Genesis Frog. UU admits that this explanation is just stalling, and she has to tell Roxy some important things that will break many rules, but she asks Roxy to go home and prepare to enter the game first.
    • Sburb Logo The character select screen returns.
  • Sburb Logo After all characters have been selected, the story returns to Roxy, who goes home and enlists the Carapacians' help in putting out all the fires the Miles have caused.
  • Sburb Logo Roxy connects to Jake and starts deploying the initial devices when she is again contacted by UU. Roxy jokes around about hacking to UU's confusion. Eventually they get down to business and UU reveals she is going to fall asleep and may never wake up, so she has decided to break the rules and tell the truth about her situation to Roxy, but first gives Roxy a farewell gift should they never speak again: a drawingMspa icon of Roxy in a Trickster Mode costume.
  • Sburb Logo Roxy compliments UU's drawing skills and begins the process of entering the Medium as UU begins to explain the truth. Her real name is Calliope, and she is a cherub, a species with superficial similarities to humans and trolls, but with several major differences. She is telling Roxy this now so that in the event that Calliope never wakes up, Roxy can mention her name to uu, which will force uu to sleep and make Calliope wake up. She says she has finally realized that their session was never meant to have two players, but was destined to have only uu play, which has horrific consequences beyond imagining. Calliope and uu have been assigned two rare master classes; Calliope is the Muse of Space, the most passive class. Calliope decides not to reveal uu's class, says a last goodbye to Roxy before the final nap and logs off, removing her gloves, wig and face paint to reveal that she resembles Lord English.
  • Sburb Logo You are now Calliope.
  • Sburb Logo Calliope removes her horns and examines her artwork, especially noting a symbol which has plagued her memories for as long as she can remember.
  • Sburb Logo Calliope angrily looks at the mess her brother left and captchalogues all the meat and candy on the floor. Her Juju Modus means that only uu can use items captchalogued by Calliope and vice versa. She examines her box of special stardust, which cherubs eat every day despite its lack of actual magical properties.
  • Sburb Logo Calliope examines her Sylladex to find that undyingUmbrage has left her multiple hateful notes accompanied by his "artwork".
  • Sburb Logo She opens up the tome of Rose Lalonde to the page which Dave and Karkat vandalized, noting its similarity to uu's indecipherable drawing style.
  • Sburb Logo She flips to another page showing parts relating to an indestructible demon which have been redacted in indigo blood. Other parts censored include reference to a troll who drinks lots of soda, who Calliope dismisses as one of the least important characters.
  • Sburb Logo She examines a ~ATH manual, which she has filled with romantic fanfiction (reminiscent of how a copy in the possession of Doc ScratchSburb Logo was used as a scrapbook). She refuses to open it out of shame.
  • Sburb Logo She picks up and loads her deudly gun/white wand
  • Sburb Logo She next examines her Juju Chest. The item inside is left a mystery.
  • Sburb Logo She holsters her gun, and it is revealed that there are two unbreakable chains rooted to irremovable juju-enchanted anchors on the wall. She is only able to unlock the one with her chat symbol on it.
  • Sburb Logo She examines the Sarswapagus and prepares for her nap. The fact that she and her brother share a body is finally confirmed.
  • Sburb Logo She examines the ladder and proceeds outside, revealing that her planet is threatened by a massive red supergiant.
  • Sburb Logo It is revealed to be the trolls' meteor, or at least resemble it.
  • Sburb Logo Her planet is covered with jpeg artifact versions of the Statue of Liberty. Calliope muses that whoever used to live on the planet must have had a weird sense of humor.
  • Sburb Logo A Character select screen appears with all four kids able to be selected. uu begins messaging Calliope and drawing fan art of the kids in each section. Unlike most character select screens, these scenes make the most sense if read in order by character from left to right, rather than the order of character selection making little difference.
  • If Jane is selected:
    • Sburb Logo Jane expresses confusion about being on Derse, and also about Jake being there.
    • Sburb Logo Dirk instructs her to leave, but...
    • Sburb Logo ...she is killed by the Red Miles impaling her from behind.
    • Sburb Logo Jane's transportalizer is covered by falling debris.
    • Sburb Logo uu's view of Jane blacks out.
    • Sburb Logo uu draws shitty fanart of Jane's death.
  • If Jake is selected:
    • Sburb Logo uu mocks Jake for wasting time mourning Jane's death while Dirk is telling him to leave Derse.
    • Sburb Logo Dirk instructs Lil' Seb to get Jake to the transportalizer.
    • Sburb Logo Lil' Seb and Jake transportalize back to Earth just before more debris covers that transportalizer.
    • Sburb Logo Lil' Seb carries Jake out of the Frog Temple and towards his house.
    • Sburb Logo A dragon lusus turns its burning gaze on Lil' Seb, causing an explosion.
    • Sburb Logo Lil' Seb falls into the lagoon and sinks.
    • Sburb Logo Jake puts on his Skulltop to try and cushion his landing...
    • Sburb Logo ...but lands on his back, rendering the attempt moot, and him unconscious in the remains of his house.
    • Sburb Logo uu draws shitty fanart of Jake being KO'd.
  • If Roxy is selected:
    • Sburb Logo Roxy prepares to carve the totem for her cruxite artifact.
    • Sburb Logo The Red Miles break through Roxy's roof.
    • Sburb Logo uu's view of Roxy blacks out before he can see the Miles hit her.
    • Sburb Logo The Miles are shown impaling Roxy, similarly to Jane except from the front.
    • Sburb Logo uu draws shitty fanart of his assumption of Roxy's death.
  • Dirk's scenes overlap Jane and Jake's slightly:
    • Sburb Logo Dirk is again shown ordering Jake to leave Derse.
    • Sburb Logo He then prepares to kiss Jane in order to save her dream self.
    • Sburb Logo The Miles destroying a tower is shown again.
    • Sburb Logo uu's view of Dirk's dream self blacks out before the debris lands on him.
    • Sburb Logo uu draws shitty fanart of dream Dirk being KO'd.
    • Sburb Logo On Earth, the incapacitation of dream Dirk also knocks out waking Dirk, who drops Lil' Cal.
    • Sburb Logo Lil' Cal falls into the sea and sinks.
    • Sburb Logo uu draws shitty fanart of Dirk being KO'd.
  • Sburb Logo Jane and Roxy's lanterns go out, while Dirk's is left barely flickering.
  • Sburb Logo Dirk's dream self begins dreaming, merges with his splinter self in the Furthest Ring and becomes visible to the group that Aranea had gathered together.
  • Sburb Logo Dirk shoves Terezi away from himself while quickly informing the group that he can't stay - he has to wake up and save everyone- and mentions that he intends to take Roxy's dream self with him.
  • Sburb Logo Dirk flies off with Roxy and Serenity, while Meenah continues to be mesmerized by the story of the Condesce.
  • Sburb Logo Dave recognizes Dirk as his brother.
  • Sburb Logo Calliope prepares to go to sleep by removing her shoes and jacket (which she wears over uu's clothes), attaching her shackle and closing her eyes for what may be the last time.
  • Sburb Logo Dirk flies to the edge of the dream bubble but is unable to pass through it and so throws Roxy out of it instead.
  • Sburb Logo Roxy flies away and the meteor leaves the dream bubble too. WV laments the loss of Serenity.
  • Sburb Logo Aranea uses her powers, making Dirk wake up. Dirk's lantern on LOCAH returns to full luminescence.
  • Sburb Logo Dirk wakes up on Earth and begins the entry process, then flies to Roxy's house by going through her fenestrated wall. He deploys Squarewave and kisses Roxy's corpse, awakening her dream self. As Roxy tries to kiss Jane, Dirk sendificates a bucket and then his own head, killing himself and sending his severed head to Jake.
  • Sburb Logo Jake is woken up by a bucket of water being dumped on him. The AR (which has redubbed itself Lil Hal) contacts him and tells him he has to kiss Dirk's head. After freaking out about Hal's manipulations, Jake kisses the head, which causes Dirk's lantern to explode.
  • Sburb Logo Dirk's dream self awakens, and he kisses Jane (since Roxy was unable to do so), waking up her dream self, then grabs Roxy and flies to the Frog Temple meteor. Jane uses the transportalizer on Prospit to arrive at the Frog Temple on Earth, where Dirk and Roxy emerge from the time capsule, pick her up and fly to Jake's place. Along the way, Dirk picks up the bucket he sent to the past and fills it up with water to wake up Jake.
  • Sburb Logo Sawtooth, Squarewave and the kids complete the entry procedures on the three remaining houses and enter the Medium. Jake's entry item appears to be a cruxite cherub piñata of sorts. Interestingly, there appear to be no cruxite artifacts for Roxy or Dirk, but their houses enter the medium anyway.
  • Sburb Logo uu, whose name is revealed by the title of the page to be Caliborn, wakes up on the Sarswapagus. He unlocks one of the chains, then bites off his other leg, replacing it with the robotic substitute. His cruxtruder is set up on the roof, and the timer is displaying his symbol in two parts: ~U. Caliborn/Calliope's kernelsprite flashes red and green rapidly, possibly indicating that it is in fact two sprites, continously prototyping each other. It then collapses, becoming a black hole which sucks in the planet.
    • Parallel with that, Lord English is shown traveling through The Furthest Ring in his Cairo Overcoat. He arrives at a dream bubble where all of the doomed timeline dead characters seem to have gathered, then destroys it as the magic 8-ball symbol shows up, apparently shattering part of reality in the process entirely analogously.
    • Elsewhere in The Furthest Ring, PM and Bec Noir witness the shattering with discomfort, as does Dave while looking back from the meteor. The force of the blast has apparently killed several Horrorterrors, whose remains float nearby.
  • Sburb Logo The curtains close on Act 6 Act 3.
