I first discovered Homestuck whilst plumbing the depths of Tvtropes, and i kind of gave it half a shot. i wasn't really in the webcomic mood at the time, i didn't bother to listen to [s]'s, and all the programming jokes went over my head. i found it dull and decided it was overhyped/not my cup of tea. then my brother got me to read problem sleuth several months later. it was fantastic, the climax was amazing, and the ending was superb. i finally decided to give homestuck another chance.
now, i had a more open mind this time around, but it was still hampered by the fact that i knew so little about programming. but i did listen this time around, and i was really wowed the first time i heard sburban jungle. then act 1 was over, and act 2 began. this was probably the act that made me decide not to stop reading unless i had to (for sleep and school).
