In one universe, to our own parallel
There are four friends you may find you know oddly well.

The first is a boy, stark white hair on his head
His name is Bec Harley, and his grandpa is dead
This has left Bec with no one on whom to depend
Except his pup Jade, who's a good dog, best friend
He lives on an island away from the land
The sole thing he eats is old food that comes canned
He does have some friends, but gets very annoyed
By one of his "chums" who he'd like to avoid
He lives the life every kid dreams that they had
Never having to listen to mom or to dad
But Bec still suffers, for with Jade and him only
There's no one around, and deep down Bec's quite lonely.

This one is named Jaspers; oh goodness, that suit
He tries to be classy, but just comes off as cute
The little white cat on his bed is named Rose
She's quite well behaved for a cat, and it shows
This boy seems polite, but he's also quite rude
Out of all four kids he has the worst attitude
His so-called maturity is honestly just
Him being an ass since he feels that he must
Be better than those whom he deigns to talk too
So he talks down his friends, and the things that they do
The kind words he gives to a bullied young girl
The ones that she blushes at; make her toes curl
Are really just sent since it makes him look good
He'll appear as he thinks a "mature" person should
He's still a nice kid; has a certain appeal
But he'll have to grow up soon, and this time for real.

Now here's a young lady who's of Egbert kin
And as for her name, it's predictably "Quinn"
She's quite fond of Jaspers (oh yes, in THAT way)
And fond of fanfiction, drawing, and roleplay
Though it's no big surprise, it still needs to be said
That she keeps a small doll she's named John on her bed
Quinn is a sweet girl, but far too naive
She's too young at heart, too easy to deceive
In the trials to come, she will see each one through
But when everything fails, what will little Quinn do?

The last of the four we shall finally see
A painted face grinning with unrestrained glee
Their name is Cal Strider, and as for their sex
Let's leave it alone and just say "it's complex"
In his room lie some puppets, two named Bro and Dave
While Cal hates the latter, Big Bro is his fave
To make life seem best Cal looks on the bright side
But to impress his friends he's repeatedly lied
He said he was rich, though he's really quite poor
But Jaspers exposed him, and now Cal once more
Curls up in his shame corner, ready to bawl  
Feels alone, isolated, and abandoned by all.

These friends have some issues, that's easy to see
But in a few years who knows what they could be
If they worked out their problems this tale could end happy
Its ending could be just the right kind of sappy
So the fact that is doesn't is almost a shame
For these friends, very soon, will be playing THAT game
And their fates will be sealed from the moment they start
Their ultimate end will drive spikes through your heart.

But some sessions just fail, and this is one such case
Though it is sad to see, theirs is doomed to take place
With no time or space player, it's a fact, not assumed
That although they don't know it, they're already doomed.
Made as a spiritual successor to [link].

More Poetrystuck! (Big surprise I'm sure.) Another Homestuck fan adventure, this time for the MOST popular FA on the site. And much like Heinoustuck, I highly endorse it! It's sadstuck though, just warning you.

Regrettably, as most of the music on the new Guidestuck album is either a character theme, or a slow, sad piece, I didn't think it would be appropriate to sync them to 4/3 speed versions of certain songs this time. I'll still plug it below though, it deserves some more recognition. :)

I've had this prepared for a while now, but I held off until now. It makes most sense to upload it today, seeing as how tomorrow is the supposed apocalypse. What with Guidestuck being a doomed session, I figured it would be quite fitting. :D

EDIT: Shoot, I forgot, I'm not supposed to submit this to groups until tomorrow! Best to show everyone this on the apocalypse after all... dang, my bad. I'll resubmit it to all of them tomorrow.

Ooo.... thats even worse-they're only hope is for a time player to bring them a Beat Mesa. But the chances of that are like zilch.

Flairina Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2012
Well, given that the Scarvenrot's page title is literally "Everyone is going to die, I mean it", and the pan has been for a doomed session from the start, I'm thinking there's no chance of that, even with whoever the lusii's time player was.

Okay! Wow, I finally got around to reading this. I feel like a bum for not jumping right on it. :I Seriously though, you've done it again!!!! :D And you were right about posting it the day before. Awesome, awesome.

I can't get over just how well the first and last 2 stanzas are. They always are just spectacular. Ahh, but it's breaking my heart. As is should. But... </3

On a side note, I realized I'm a Space player, so... awesome! If people play Sburb with me it means 50% less chance of failure. x'D Yess. (Wow, I'm sorry I got sidetracked, I'm a little tired. Lol. It's good to see your poem. c: )

Why thank you! I try. :icongrinwooplz:

I'm apparently Void, so that's not so for me. ^^; If the Sburb ever does happen, best of luck! :D

Ahh, I was sooo close to being Void. Or wait. Doom. Doom. If I chose my second best fitting class I would have been the Knight of Doom. :I Lol. (Wow, I got side tracked... again. TT_TT Sorry about that.)

Chances are, that if Sburb ever did happen, our groups would be bigger than 4 or 6, so you would probably be safe with a Space and Time player. :D Hopefully. Best of luck to you as well. To that possible someday! :0

Wow.... This poem has flow and rhythm like a good poem does, but the way it is set up is also in an almost childlike, storytelling manner (which makes the end even more sharp when we are told about these characters' doom).

Here I am, pretending to be a poetry pro.... It's really good, mang.
Reply
:iconflairina:
Flairina Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012
Thanks! I'm happy you got that it's intentionally set up that way- these are just kids, and not very well adjusted ones at that. But they grow on you as the story goes on, and while reading you keep getting reminded that by the end they'll all be dead... they'll never have the chance to make up for their mistakes. They'll never grow up, and they'll never become the people they could be. But they WILL die in the harshest ways imaginable, and that makes it all the more heart wrenching.

So basically, it's like if HS was more upfront about what happens. :XD: Thank you! :dance:
