Worst ending? It was all a dream, Or that Lord English dies before the heros get to him, so they have nothing better to do then talk about troll romance all day,every day.
The ending that goes "The End".
I know a lot of devoted readers that have been around since 2009/2010 are really disappointed with the sprawling plot and ridiculous amount of characters, but I so far haven't lost interest in a character that I had previous interest in. I honestly don't know what I'm going to do with my spare time if Hussie ever stops updating.
Although, I do think Hussie has a problem with the idea of minor characters. He tends to give every single entity significant to the plot in anyway mentioned a back story/mission/personality X10. I think the entire fan base would be fine if some characters dropped back a bit from the spotlight.
Crazy Dave. The last episode is their divorce; and Equius, unable to take this in, runs away, never to be seen again.
Nepeta's story is sure to come. Hussie's hinted at it at least twice. And I think Dad has a story. I actually find him to be one of the most interesting characters, maybe because he's mysterious.
Equius might not have a story really. I don't even know if he's alive right now ... But he's got a very developed personality, at least.
The lusus are maybe the only really minor characters.

My tumblr that I never use.
If you have lossless audio (.flac, .alac, .wav, etc.) versions of Bill Bolin's removed Homestuck music tracks please PM me.
Hussie makes a flash file ending so big and so awesome that no internet service anywhere can host it. Nobody save for a few see it, and they can't share what they saw because all the major sites go down indefinitely, and we are plunged into a dark age without internet.
He somehow also crashes the phone networks.

(it has, imo, except for "flat and uninteresting characters" and "hideous, retching remains of a good story")
andrew has a definite ending planned; he's not going to keep it rolling forever. he's stated that homestuck is "just a warm-up for something else".
"Andrew Hussie finally finishes Homestuck with an ending closing all the plot ends packed with the most awesome ever. This however does not go well."
Early morning, April 13, 2015
"Compiling file Homestuck_End_of_Act_7.mp4 (1:34:00, 5.1 GB)... (99.990%)"
Andrew Hussie was sound asleep in the office chair behind his computer as the last ten thousandths of percent counted down.
99.997... 99.998... 99.999... complete.
A buzzer went off as the compiling finished, startling Andrew from his sleep. He was dreaming about something revolving around Jane hitting a Crockercorp mook with her fork and switching it to the spoon, killing the mook. These dreams just mangled End of Act 7 more horribly and horribly. There was one feature-length movie-long epic, period.
Andrew then drew the last update Homestuck would ever receive. John, Rose, Dave, Jade, Jane, Roxy, Dirk and Jake stood in front of the obliterated universe, on top of the dead corpses of the Condesce and Lord English, each holding the combinations of each other's weapons. This took quite a time, but time was at a premium.
At the precise moment of 2015.04.13 11:13:00 UTC, which translated to 07:13:00 here on Massachusetts, where he lived, a dedicated torrent server would turn on, immediately broadcasting the update which Andrew already nicknamed "Homestuck: The Movie"-
"[S] Conclude." The man behind Homestuck corrected himself on the thought train.
The update would be broadcast to anyone and everyone wanting to watch it, and, by the advantage of torrent, even if this server went down thousands- no, millions of Homestuck fans everywhere hopefully would have collected every single facet, every single minute of the update and there would be a massive exchange throughout the Internet. The mistakes of AlterniaBound, EoA 5, EoA 6 and that other game-update would not be repeated. The Internet was safe.
Or so he thought.
He put the finishing touches on the last update ever, as EoA 7 was uploading to the torrent server, and wrote for the textual completion of the update:
"> John, Rose, Dave, Jade, Jane, Roxy, Dirk and Jake: Pose as a team. Shit finally was brought to an end.
And thus concluded the most epic showdown ever in paradox space.
END OF ACT 7.
Thanks for playing!"
Now only to wait out the transfer. Andrew watched as the numbers ticked down some more, one set to 100% of the uploading, the other to 07:13:00.0. Conventions probably were held everywhere as people watched the countdown to the conclusion of Homestuck...
Or countdown to the doom of telecommunications.
As the last five minutes ticked, Andrew took out the flash drive with the entire video file, turned off the computer, and plugged it off entirely from the Interned and from the power lines. They were safe, and the epic that should be spoken about for centuries was intact.
Four. The man took out his iPhone 5 and looked at the live internet activity graph, slowly but steadily growing up. F5-ers? Andrew shook his head. He clearly warned not to F5 the entire internet out. He pocketed the iPhone back, and waited.
Three. After Homestuck, Andrew didn't know what else to continue. The webcomic could not be out-done by something even more epic, so the MS Paint Adventures site would probably not be updated anymore, and his dedicated artist team and himself would probably be sent spoils from the mass adventure for the rest of their lives, and Andrew himself would denounce everything.
Two. Everything was completely planned out. Nothing terrible could happen to the Internet. Maybe except for the event that would be spoken about even by people who didn't have an Internet connection. 7.2 billion people would be rocked out, and everything would be finished out.
Last minute. Andrew rushed to the dedicated server, ready to formally flip the switch and record himself doing it.
Thirty. "I, Andrew Hussie of the MS Paint Adventures fame, hereby announce the ending to Homestuck, and the ending to MSPA.*Commencing ending in ten. Nine. Eight. Seven. Six. Five. Four. Three. Two. One."
The switch was finally flipped. "Enjoy."
Conventions everywhere were literally rocked out by the first chords of the beginning of Conclude. The man really did it this time. A year-long wait, and then this.
But the worst was just ahead.
I'm posting this here, but I won't want to write the entirety of this fanfic.

Hussie invites a guest musician or writer-
Ryan North takes over Homestuck.
All my worst endings seem to involve other people. Maybe it's because Hussie alone cannot ruin Hussie's work. Wait, no, there is a way.
Hussie uses the Lavender Town theme (Red/Green original) and people start complaining about headaches and the Lavender Town Tone Conspiracy sends the forums to flaming hell.

I had a dream that it just kept going and going and just scratching and restarting and it never ended. But the worst ending would be if it was someone's dream or if someone was in a coma and imagined it all up and they finally woke up after years and found out it wasn't real.
Either way, I'm going to sob when it ends, sweet jesus.
T1M3 TO FLY UP 4W4Y TO SK414 YOU FUCKN1G P13C3 OF G4RB4G3
Okay, how's this for worst ending: The comic stops just as the kids are about to fight Lord English, leaving it ambiguous as to whether or not they manage to defeat him in a "draw your own conclusion" sort of way. Cue longtime fans tearing their hair out in frustration.
