A QUEST OF FUTILITY THEN.This page may not be done in a while - or ever, until the game that this page is related to has been beaten.
Please keep coming back to and updating it.
Originally, Hussie had intended to produce the story entirely using Flash. The Homestuck beta started on April 10, 2009 with 8 pages fully in Flash. However, this turned out to be too difficult and time-consuming, so Hussie re-started the story on April 13, 2009 using .gifs instead. Flash is now typically used for major story events or to deliver a large amount of conversation and/or plot exposition all at once.

Nanna offers some rather cryptic advice, but John's Consorts, the Salamanders, offer up plenty of information on the John's planet, the Underlings he has been battling, and just how much of a fuckin' pain in the ass it is to farm these goddamn mushrooms.

Homestuck: Act 5 Act 2Edit
- The act opens with blue curtains opening to red curtains (representing the change of focus from trolls to humans), opening to a glance of Earth.
- The earth is zoomed in to Northwest America to the neighborhood where John Egbert has grown up, being pelted by two huge meteors.
- Inside one of the craters is the dead Nanna, with the baby John Egbert and a copy of Colonel Sassacre's Daunting Text of Magical Frivolity and Practical Japery sitting on top of her.
- The scene zooms out to a computer. Karkat is watching this scene unfold with a look of awe that then changes into a look of absolute rage.
- Time passes. Baby John Egbert is seen on the Green Slime Ghost Pogo that he rides and falls off of, injuring his knee. Dad comes to his aid.
- Multiple quick scenes present John growing up and spending time with his father: John helping Dad make baked goods, playing the piano, being pied in the face, and meeting Jade online and training to be a prankster.
- Scenes forward to the earlier parts of Homestuck, where he fights the imps an ogres, becomes praised by the Salamander people, and being carted away on a board.
- Karkat's pupils change into spades, depicting his kismesissitude for John.
- The song in this Flash is Homestuck.
- Vriska views a YouTube clip John sends her of the final scene of Con Air. While viewing it, she develops feelings of matespritship for Nicolas Cage.
- See Alterniabound.
- The Prospit loading screen is used.
- Jade falls asleep after the destruction of Prospit (and before the creation of ), and begins to dream. Her dream at first places her happily on her bed with her Lunchtop, Squiddles, and a background consisting only of a rainbow guitar fretboard. Happy Squiddles music is playing in the background.
- The fretboard fades away as the music becomes distorted with the sounds of The Noble Circle of Horrorterrors chanting "Tangle Buddies".
- The scene fades into a small blue bubble. The music also fades to silence.
- Dave's dream self is watching events, and slowly takes off his shades, revealing his red eyes. They widen at the sight of something not seen by the viewer.
- The blue gem reappears with a small Squiddle in front of it, but turns red. It expands into a Squiddles title card, flickering somewhat with static, as a second Squiddles song begins to play, this one shrill and somewhat distorted compared to the first.
- The scene returns with a television-like flash to Jade on her bed, with the rainbow fretboard background back but now bifurcated and covered in little silver sparkles, as she jumps off her bed onto the back of a pink narwhal with a rainbow horn.
- Feferi appears on the back of an aquatic hoofbeast with a red diamond on its side and a red ribbon in its hair. Several cuttlefish are following her.
- Feferi, the cuttlefish, Jade, and the Squiddles float around smiling as the background and music become increasingly distorted, flashing to various other iterations of the rainbow, other Squiddles title cards, and static.
- Flickering in shades of rainbow, Jade and Feferi stare at each other, the former becoming somewhat surprised and distressed, the latter remaining insouciant.
- Jade and Feferi's mounts tilt at angles as the background and music completely go to hell.
- A draconian face flashes as a burst of static cuts the footage off.
- Horrorterrors come out of some kind of portal at the screen's center to increasingly frenzied static pulses. At first merely in shade of gray, sections of the pulses also become red and white.

- The background of monsters flashes away as Jade wakes up distressed in her bed.
- The song in this Flash is Let the Squiddles Sleep.
- Jade's loading screen is used, but it fades into the silhouette of Bec's face.
- A Meteor heads towards Jade's island. Jade's Cruxite Artifact appears: A Becquerel piñata hanging from a tree and a blindfold for Jade.
- John, working as Jade's server player, selects a doll for the first prototyping. However, Vriska manipulates him into falling asleep at this moment.
- Instead Becquerel transports all other material out of the room and prototypes himself. This is accompanied by the flashing that Bec typically induces. He flies up and destroys the meteor in a massive explosion that also creates a tidal wave, causing destruction at least as far away as the city where Dave lives.
- Jade tries to hit the piñata with the butt of her rifle, but it creates a green explosion and pushes her out of her tower.
- Davesprite and Dave's Bro are fighting Jack Noir as a fire rages on in the background.
- Still blindfolded but now in Hero Mode, Jade tries to shoot the piñata as she falls.
- Bec redirects the bullet into the piñata for her, transporting her house into the medium. Bec's explosion has spared at least the rest of her island, which remains on Earth.
- Jack transforms into Bec Noir. The flames around the battlefield turn green. Bro and Davesprite look on.
- There is a burst of pixellated green static that turns to red. This is accompanied by the change of the music's tone to 8-bit. The trolls are gathered around on a platform as Karkat reaches forward to claim the ultimate reward, but then Bec Noir appears. Aradia transports the trolls into the veil, as the army of Aradiabots stay behind to fight Noir.
- There is another burst of red static. Karkat is shown briefly asleep on the floor of the lab in the veil in his normal clothing, but then wakes up on Prospit. Bec Noir appears before him, flashing into Spades Slick to represent Karkat's mental connection between the two individuals, and extends his hand. He destroys Prospit with a massive burst of green light.
- The screen zooms in on Bec Noir's triumphant but stoic face, flashing as he is wont to do. One flash shows white dots on a black background, which suddenly expands to become the entire background.
- This is Jade's land, as is later learned the Land of Frost and Frogs. The sky fades from black to light gray as Jade appears, falling as she was before, now with a soft smile on her face. As she falls, everything fades even further from shades of gray into white.
- The song in this Flash is Umbral Ultimatum.
- The Land of Frost and Frogs is introduced. Frogs are shown frozen in ice. Jade is seen sleeping on a floating bed with a Green Sun blanket.
- The song in this Flash is Frost
- Jade encounters a Becquerel-prototyped imp. She fights it, and the two teleport around the Medium due to First Guardian teleporting powers. She is seen by three time-displaced Daves, one of which is woken up when she fires her gun. Eventually they end up back where they started, but now Becsprite is there. Flashing red letters warn the player that "IT KEEPS HAPPENING".
- The song in this Flash is Sunslammer.
- See John: Enter Village.
- John bleeds from his chest wound on his Quest Bed, while the Wayward Vagabond watches from his monitor. The fireflies on LOWAS fly down and land on John as his Quest Bed activates.

- This Flash marks the 612th day of Homestuck.
- The loading screen is silent with a silhouette of Bec Noir's face.
- The Mysterious Countdown is shown from 4:13:59 to 4:13:50. Feferi's dream self is shown on Derse, surrounded by Horrorterrors. Jack Noir flies in and slices her in half.
- He flies over to Nepeta's dream self and stabs her as well. He then destroys all of Derse with Bec's powers as Nepeta's dying dream self looks on in horror.
- In Derse's core, Aradia's dream self is shown sleeping on her Quest Bed. As she ascends to god tier, her soulbot self-destructs. Jack Noir, seeing this, swoops in towards Aradia, but with her newly fully realized powers she stops him in time.
- The mysterious countdown is shown on Aradia's symbol of time, stopping at 4:13. It then advances to 3:14:01 on Vriska's symbol of light.
- As the time advances one second more to 3:14:00, we zoom out to see Vriska, flying to find Tavros.
- Vriska indicates through gesture that Tavros is going down. Tavros does likewise. With a manic grin on her face Vriska picks up Tavros's legs off the floor. Tavros then charges towards her, lance in hand. When he reaches her, she slaps him, steals his lance, stabs him through with it, and throws him off the edge.
- Mysterious arm
- The song in this Flash is MeGaLoVania.

- Rose ascends from the Beat Mesa.
- Zooms in from a picture of the Battlefield to a shot of John floating near The Tumor.
- Shows John rising up away from the Battlefield.
- A very silly Flash where John sings about the glory of Zillyhoo. It is also shown that Gamzee has a copy of the Warhammer, and Karkat weeps before its glory. Done entirely in a scribbly art style.
- The song in this Flash is Warhammer of Zillyhoo, of course.
- See Seer: Descend.
- John looks at the dead bodies of Dad and Mom. Rose, John, and Jack Noir look at each other. John raises his hammer and Rose her thorns as the music builds...
- And John is stabbed.
- He falls to the ground.
- Rose becomes enraged, and blows up the castle.
- The song in this Flash is At the Price of Oblivion.
- Terezi exits a room in the meteor. This is the end of Disc One of Homestuck, but Disc Two is missing!
- This Flash marks the end of the second year of Homestuck.
- The player tries to control Terezi, but since there is no disc, they can't. Terezi walks down the hallway and finds a note stuck in the floor with Nepeta's claws.
- The transcript of the messages in this sequence is as follows:
- "You cannot control Terezi! How can you possibly expect to play this game when you have lost the game disc? All you can do is watch what she decides to do."
- "You find a note stuck to the floor with Nepeta's claw. It appears to be addressed to you, written on a page torn from the journal of Vriska's ancestor. Her taunts are becoming increasingly flagrant. It also appears to be written in purple blood. She wouldn't dare harm sweet, precious Gamzee, would she? The thought is almost more than you can bear. You are going to throw the book at her."
- Terezi attempts to read the note, but falls through a trap door into the secret room.
- In the room, Gamzee flash-steps around as Terezi lies in a pile of mutilated Scalemates.
- The song in this Flash is Secret ROM.
- Terezi plays some records she found in the secret room, including Eddie Morton's "I'm a Member of the Midnight Crew".
- Terezi puts Homestuck Disc 2 on the record player, not realizing that it is a compact disc and not a record. It therefore gets scratched.
- The scratched disc two is put in. The next page loads directly from this page, instead of being given a link.
- Terezi reads Vriska's (actually Gamzee's) note. She picks up the scalemates, Lil Cal, and Pyralspite. She does an 4CROB4T1C FUCK1NG P1ROU3TT3 while doing so. She then breaks down the secret room's door and begins ascending.
- Flashback to the Ancestors. Redglare attacks Mindfang's fleet. Pyralspite blinds Mindfang with his red eyes, and Mindfang's fleet is completely destroyed. Mindfang glares at Redglare, having lost her arm.
- Terezi finishes ascending. Vriska is seen talking to John through Roses account, and looks at Terezi in her Redglare cosplay suit out of the corner of her eye.
- Throughout the Flash, the images have defects caused by the disc's scratch.
- The song in this Flash is Terezi Owns.
- Parts of this Flash are callbacks to a previous Flash, "[S] Dave: Ascend to the highest point of the building.", with Terezi recapitulating Dave's role.
- During the scene where Pyralspite destroys Mindfang's fleet, a lone troll drifts by in a tiny boat. While unidentified in the story, this troll bears an uncanny resemblance to Guybrush Threepwood of the Secret of Monkey Island games.
- Interestingly, this flash does not have a volume control button in the upper left-hand corner like the others.
- This Flash is very glitchy due to the second disc being scratched. Parts of other Flashes and pages momentarily appear (even ones that had not been posted yet), and some of Vriska and Terezi's dialogue is cut off.
- Terezi walks through the meteor to find Vriska. On the way, she passes tubes containing the decapitated bodies (de-upper-torso'd in Eridan's case) of Eridan, Nepeta, Feferi, Equius and Tavros. Some of the trolls' corresponding "DEAD" screens are shown amongst the glitches as she walks past.
- Terezi confronts Vriska, accusing her of murdering their friends. Vriska truthfully denies having committed multiple murders, but admits to killing Tavros. Terezi does a x3 facepalm combo with help from Lil Cal.
- Terezi tells Vriska that she cannot go to fight Jack, because he will follow her pixie trail and find them on the meteor. She then offers a deal: she flips her coin. Heads, Vriska stays. Scratch, she goes. Vriska asks if she really wants to challenge the Thief of Light to a game of chance, since she has AAAAAAAALLLLLLLL the luck. But she agrees. Terezi flips the coin, but the result is not revealed because of glitches.
- The song in this Flash is BL1ND JUST1C3 : 1NV3ST1G4T1ON !!
- There is a transcript of the dialogue in the Flash on .

This Flash cuts frequently between Dream Dirk on Derse's moon, and Jake and the Brobot on the island. Events are presented here with the two separated to avoid protracted coverage of the details.
- On the island:
- Jake confronts the Brobot, and initiates strife. The usual taunts cause him some consternation, as the Brobot grows extra arms for the thumbs down.
- The Brobot slices Jake's first salvo of bullets in half, and the second salvo only succeeds in killing a few fairy bulls, before the Brobot catches Jake's bullets and throws them back at him. The Brobot then proceeds to start beating the crap out of Jake in earnest, with many moves echoing Dave's strifes with Bro and Lil' Cal.
- The Brobot continues to humiliate Jake, as a dragon lusus, previously seen only in the distance at the start of the strife, looms relatively close in the background.
- The Brobot knocks Jake's glasses and eyes off his face, causing Jake to have to pick them back up. No sooner does Jake retrieve them than the Brobot grabs him before he has a chance to react, and carries him high into the air, before slamming him down into the ground.
- Jake attempts to retaliate against the Brobot by latching onto it and ineffectually hitting it on the head. He then holds on as it tries to throw him off. Eventually, he manages to grab the Brobot's shades, and stomps on them. The Brobot simply puts on another pair, before laying the smackdown on Jake with one punch.
- On Derse:
- Dirk's dream self leaves his room and takes his glasses off briefly, as first seen first in [S] Roxy: Sleepwalk. He then retrieves the Hegemonic Brute's head and flies around Derse's moon with it to show the residents. He accumulates a large crowd of Dersites following him.
- The Dersite monarch observes this, and via the Fenestrated Walls, directs the Draconian Dignitary to deal with the situation. She is seen to be wearing a ring with no orbs.
- Dream Dirk picks up a spike with a banner on it, which he cuts off. Meanwhile, the Draconian Dignitary walks through the streets of the moon, following Dream Dirk's trail. Dream Dirk is seen to have stuck the Hegemonic Brute's head on the spike on top of a monument, and departed the scene before the Draconian Dignitary's arrival. Also stuck on the spike is the cover page of the Enquiring Carapacian bearing the news of Dream Jane's death.
- The Draconian Dignitary approaches the monument, and takes the scrap of newspaper. Written on it, he finds a message from Dirk: "The Prince is awake. Your shit is wrecked."

- This page is unusual for a couple of technical reasons. Firstly and most obviously, neither the HTML page nor the Flash file has a normal Homestuck-style URL (the page above is a redirect to a page named Death of the Author); unlike, say, [S] Ride. (URL of the form "?s=6&p=pony"), this URL is not within the Homestuck section of MSPA. Secondly, there is also no text on the HTML page – the title shown here only appears on links to it. A third curiosity is that the volume control doesn't appear in the preloader, instead appearing only once the Flash begins in earnest, but the page is not unique in this respect, as some previous pages have also behaved in this way. , standing for

- The first canon appearance of Kanaya in the black and white dress originally designed by Slunk for Alterniabound.
- The first canon appearance of March Madness Eridan.
- Six Eridans with wands, wizard hats and regular living eyes instead of black white ghost eyes. (This does not necessarily mean they are alive, Aranea was able to look like a living Vriska while she was re-enacting one of Terezi's memories in Act 6 Intermission 2.)

- The characters' assumption of the ghostly gathering being a costume party is an obvious reference to Halloween, which was three days prior to and the intended date for the release, though it was stalled due to the trouble involving the MSPA server in New York and Hurricane Sandy.
Homestuck: Act 6 Act 4Edit
- The curtains open, showing the map of the B2 session's Incipisphere. As the focus zooms in, each planet and its gates change into the color of their respective player, and the graphic representing Skaia is replaced with the actual Skaia.
- A bright white light flashes, and the focus rapidly zooms away from Skaia. A purple X appears and turns into part of Jake's planet, the Land of Mounds and Xenon.
- The surface of LOMAX is shown. The planet is covered in burial mounds and dotted with Stonehedge-like monuments. Skeleton Underlings roam the landscape. Jake shoots at a Basilisk; he is wearing a new outfit, wields dual golden pistols and now possesses a Sweet Bro tattoo on his shoulder that matches Dirk's Hella Jeff tattoo.
- Still imprisoned on Prospit, the B2 session's Jack Noir carves a tally mark into his cell wall.
- Roxy's land, the Land of Pyramids and Neon, is shown. Giant pyramids with glowing neon points dominate the scenery. Jane and Roxy appear wielding new weapons: Roxy has a sendificator rifle and Jane has a giant fork with a miniature Skaia on the bottom. Jane jumps into a Fenestrated Wall and Roxy shoots the top of a pyramid with the rifle. The other wall appears where Roxy shot and Jane rockets out of it, reaching a gate.
- Jack carves another mark into the wall.
- Dirk's land, the Land of Tombs and Krypton, is shown. The planet features towering, skyscraper-sized tombs and an unbreathable atmosphere, as Dirk and Jake are both shown wearing gas masks while preparing to ambush some Underlings. Yaldabaoth (or a statue of him) sits on top of a tomb.
- Jack carves another mark into his wall, and his golden spire snaps after he finishes. 153 marks in total have been carved, indicating that the date is April 12, 2012, the day before the B1 kids and surviving trolls arrive in the new session.
- As Jack looks out the window at Skaia, the focus zooms out to show it and all four planets. The End of Act curtains then appear.
- The song in this Flash is .
Homestuck: Act 6 Intermission 4Edit
- The EOA6A4 curtain mechanism is shown.
- In a parody of Myststuck, Caliborn comes across Gamzee, who offers to be Caliborn's guide. The reader is given two choices on how to respond, but both choices are the same: a picture of Caliborn staring.
- Caliborn and Gamzee proceed to stare at each other for several seconds, neither saying anything. Caliborn then pulls out his machine gun and unloads a stream of bullets into Gamzee's torso. The gunfire knocks the "wings" off of Gamzee's god tier outfit, revealing them to be fake.
- Continuing the Myststuck parody, the music used is Elevatorstuck.
- Spread out over three pages, Caliborn walks away from Gamzee while continuing to shoot him. After taking several dozen bullets to the chest, Gamzee at last falls onto the ground, his fake wings floating down beside him. Caliborn shoots him one last time.
- Elevatorstuck is also used as the music for these pages.
- A horribly injured Gamzee drags himself over to Caliborn and tries to give him a SkaiaNet hub to plug into the tower. Caliborn guns him down once more, sending the hub flying out of Gamzee's hands. It lands next to the keyboard on the tower's computer terminal.
- Elevatorstuck is also used as the music on this page (because Caliborn doesn't like it).
- Caliborn freaks out as Elevatorstuck plays again to stop him hitting Gamzee with a crowbar.
- Caliborn hits the MSPA command tower with the crowbar to stop the music as the site falls apart from repeated hits. This page does not have the normal URL as it simply says 007395/ as opposed to ?s=6&p=007395. Using that format does however redirect to the flash.
- The music is mutable after Caliborn knocks the tilde off of the volume button.
- The crowbar hits, however, are not.

- This projects Gamzee away, just like with the Tavrisplosion.
- The wave of energy revives a lot of the dead plant life on LOCAH while killing all underlings and interestingly leaving only Zillium grist in their place.
- Jane flies away from LOCAH, and the curtains close on the act.
- The music used for this flash was not listed on the Sound Credits page, but it is probably a part of Trickster Mode.
- The curtains turn around and turn pink.
Homestuck: Act 6 Act 5 Act 2Edit
- Trickster Jane emerges from a portal and arrives in a colorful landscape filled with floating islands (identical in appearance to the ones in Problem Sleuth), castles and lollipop trees.

- Gamzee hits himself on the head repeatedly.
- As the cherubs follow her, Jane enters another portal and leaves.
- A mesmerized Caliborn continues to watch the scene.
- Clicking on the scrolling bar of confections at the top of the site produces various sound effects.
- It's interesting to note that Caliborn's reaction doesn't change even if no button-mashing is performed, leaving the inhabitants of the bizarre zone Jane enters entirely unchanged. Which may actually be more unsettling than if she changes everything she encounters.
- The music used is (not yet released)
- A red flashing outline of Jane appears next to Jake. The reader is instructed to "deploy the Crocker" by placing her within the outline and clicking.
- When this is accomplished, Jane kicks Jake in the groin and sends him flying out of his shoes.
- Despite the lack of an [S], there is in fact sound on the page.
- Jane appears with her mustache and a magnifying glass, next to an animation of Jake twerking and booty shaking in Trickster Mode, which can be viewed clearly by zooming in.

- The music used is (not yet released)
- A zoom in to the tricksters running around the Alchemiter.
- A conksuck boot hangs off the Alchemiter and krigklefucker rests in the center of it.
- The four tricksters endlessly continue to run around the Alchemiter.
- ARquiusprite and Erisolsprite float together to the far aright. Gamzee, Droll, Sawtooth, and Squarewave stand around the Alchemiter.
- "OH BOY!!!!!!!!!!!OH BOY!!!!!!!!!!!"... scrolls endlessly at the bottom of the flash.

- An unmutable crowbar hitting sound plays repeatedly.
- This page does not have the normal URL as it simply says 007680/ as opposed to ?s=6&p=007680. Using that format does however redirect to the flash.
- Caliborn and Gamzee prepare to turn their keys. A short countdown from 3 is displayed. When it ends, they turn the keys simultaneously.
- After a brief flash of light, two monitors are activated on the tower and begin to loudly hum. The one on the left shows the Heart and Void symbols, and the one on the right shows the Hope and Life symbols.
Homestuck: Act 6 Intermission 5Edit
- Meenah goes to the bathroom as Sollux falls down the stairs and everybody else starts playing .
- Deep inside the Earth's core, Caliborn is offered The Choice by Yaldabaoth.
- John runs over to the other group of trolls.
- Clicking the back button causes the word "why" to appear instead of replaying the animation.
- Feferi and Nepeta fly away bringing Sollux with them.
- Attempting to click the back button causes the button to jump around the screen while changing its dimensions and orientations before eventually becoming Nicolas Cage's face. Clicking his face causes him to exclaim "boner" and resets the back button to its starting position.
- Kurloz picks up Vriska's pirate coat in his miracle modus sylladex and leaves.
- Clicking the back arrow causes a multitude to appear on the screen, most of which honk and one of which (in the top left corner) actually restarts the Flash.

- John runs over to Vriska and Aranea, who are standing on the sun-shaped platform representing Yaldabaoth's head, and jumps onto it as it begins to descend. Meenah and Aradia float down and join them while the platform starts to lose its color. When it is completely gray, it stops and a stone pedestal ascends from the platform's center; atop it is a red chest.
- Clicking the back button causes another one to appear, and clicking on those causes even more to appear in increasingly elaborate designs until they are replaced with 16 Nicolas Cage heads. Clicking on any of them makes a giant distorted picture of Cage appear while a pitched-down version of the "boner" sound clip plays. A new back button appears in the usual location and actually replays the Flash when clicked.
- The members of The Felt (and Aurthour) go inside Biscuits' oven.
- Cans punches John out of the panel.
- The panel is totally empty except for the link to the next page and John, who acts as the reader's mouse cursor.

- Is the shot of Jane and Roxy hugging while Tiny Maplehoof eats cotton candy meaningful, or just a reference to the fanbase? You decide!
- The song in this Flash is also Pony Chorale
- A horribly distorted version of "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" plays with an image of Nicolas Cage in Con Air. Cage then turns red, before being replaced by a photograph of Andrew Hussie and music team member Toby "Radiation" Fox, both wearing fake glasses, and Radiation giving the middle finger.
- I SAID...PUT THE BUNNY BACK IN THE BOX
