Does Classpect confuse you? The endless series of titles and ranks, charting some unfathomable system that is wondrously complex, terribly complex, but overall just seems way too important to the story for something Hussie doesn’t seem willing to explain? Well good news! Under the tutelage of my friend and mentor bladekindEyewear, I have the learned the basics, and through spending way too much time thinking and writing about the classes and aspects, I have come up with working definitions and ideas behind them! So read on, and look at a few very well defended and defined ideas and theories behind them all.
This system was primarily developed by Homestuck, so reading the comic would be a great asset in understanding it, but by no means should a study be limited to fans of the comic. It would be very interesting to see a non-Homestuck get into the system.
It’s all under the cut. Questions, additions, theories, criticisms, compliments, and gifts are all well appreciated. Especially the gifts. But be warned: there are approximately 9,000 words here, and you are getting yourself into something big.
“If anyone is reading this still, you are a fucking saint. I am going mad and I’m 5,000 words in and this is pointless what am I doing with my life.”
Someday I’ll get to reading all of this, but for now the joke’s on you, I just skimmed it! (I guess I don’t get to be the Saint of Fuck?)
But in all seriousness this is amazing! This clearly involved a lot of work and it manages to put everything all together in one place. I especially like your focus on the background behind the names, because they do have a cultural meaning that is important.
