Yeah, I know. "Jesus Drew, more Homestuck shit? What happened to you?"
It's been a long five years. I somehow got embroiled into the Homestuck Discord Server and keep an eye on that place every single day. In the meantime I also got really into data archival, which if you saw my post on the Game Grumps transcription should not surprise you in the slightest.
I also did another project for (YOU GUESSED IT) Homestuck back in 2014 or 2015 where I sorted each character's dialogue by hand
. I think it's the incredible amount of autism I suffer from but I just feel compelled to do these things.
That having been said, I also wrote some articles lately about some people who had an extremely important hand in shaping the webcomic into what it is now. There are a lot of pages that rely on Flash, which was either done by the creator of the comic himself or this fellow called Gankro, who I feel like most people were largely unaware of. That article is here: https://homestuckhiveswap.tumblr.com/post/169353748877/an-interview-with-gankro-homestuck-programmer
The second article I wrote was about the affiliated Music Team, who had their own interesting history that I felt was worth exploring for a while. I interviewed both Gankro and about seven people for the Music Team article, one of which was Toby Fox (the Undertale guy).

Again, I'm not sure what compels me to do these things other than "I really like the community," and this is sort of my way of contributing to that. I'm really enamored with the idea of being able to unearth this relatively obscure information and give it to others, and I put a lot of effort into writing these steaming piles of crap. If you guys feel like checking them out, let me know what you think.
