Redirected from Windows

Windows are physical portals between the normal world and the imaginary universe. Windows have a number of special properties that can be useful in solving puzzles:

  • Windows must be plugged into a wall socket to work; they are solid when unplugged.
  • If a window is unplugged while an object is partway through, the object will be severed at the plane of the window's pane, due to the unpowered side no longer existing or being "On". Anyone on the unpowered side of a window may meet some interesting friends.
  • Complete blackouts may summon some very inquisitive and frisky friends.
  • Windows may be moved freely, even while the window is active (up to the limit of the power cord's extent, of course).
  • Windows' real and imaginary sides may be moved independently.
  • A window's real and imaginary sides may have differing scales, in which case the window serves as a means of Aspect Modification.
  • Some windows allow the gravity within the imaginary universe to be redirected according to the window's position in the material plane.

Windows may manifest as objects that would not typically be described as windows, such as mirrors or traffic light lenses. They are often glass surfaces but many exceptions occur such as the bodices, jacuzzi, the back of the trucks, and the occasional random magical portal as the result of a flying carousel.

It is important to note that windows primarily have these properties in the Problem Sleuth universe. In the Homestuck universe, most windows function the same way as in real life... possibly Sburb Logo . However, Homestuck's fenestrated walls function in similar ways to windows, and Roxy Lalonde is the only one to have them in the Problem Sleuth style. The properties of Roxy's windows are a bit different, however; they redirect through the Furthest Ring instead of the imaginary universe, and do not seem to have any aspect-modifying properties. Roxy appears to have alchemized a gun that fires windows, which she uses to navigate the uneven surface of LOPAN.
