Welcome to the new thread for "Let's Read: Homestuck"!
We have decided that ultimately that the old thread was outdated and did not fufill the duty of profiling who we are completely. On top of that we've completely cleared the main hurdle of casting all characters from Acts 1 through 5! Should you wish to view the old thread of our humble beginnings you may do so here.
Back in late August 2011, The CoLab was formed between two "Let's Players" who really didn't know any better. SkittlesAreTasty and I set out on a monumental goal that has been attempted some times before us: To voice act all of Homestuck. Back then, we had nary a clue of the monumental effort, time and dedication that it would take to bring a more audiable experience to a webcomic that has caught the attention of many... In fact, in our naivety we had even rushed the first several episodes before we had even cast the 4 main kids themselves! But through our CoLab'd efforts and a big helping of (godlike) luck, we've brought together over 20 talented individuals into our community to tackle a project that could in total take us well over 2 years at our current pacing. It's a lot to commit to, for sure, but speaking personally for just a second, I can't imagine what life would be like without these guys. I made the right choice in chosing to help see this project to fruition.
SkittlesAreTasty has stepped down from the position of Admin of the CoLab and has left it to me. Since then, I have appointed NickyTheRat as my Assistant Admin.

All Episodes So Far:
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: There's this really cool guy called Octopimp/MasterYorgi and I think you should let him voice the Trolls!
A: Octopimp is already on the job as Eridan and it would be inconsiderate to him to make him voice more than one character. Instead, we have many other talented Voice Actors well suited for all your Troll needs.
Q: What's your policy on Requests / Comissions?
A: We are currently taking requests to voice Fan-comics/works, feel free to send them in! As for comissions, legally we cannot accept.
Q: Hey! Are you currently accepting Auditions?
A: No, I'm afraid at this time, we are not accepting any more auditions. Even for minor roles.
Q: Really? But what about the Act 6 Kids?
A: Unfortunately, it will be well over an entire year before we get to Act 6 at our current rate. Furthermore, it is in our best interests to let the characters develop further so we may fully grasp what voice may suit them. But rest assured, when auditions open for them, we shall let you know.
Q: But Jake sends letters in Act 4!
A: Trust me man, we've got this.
Q: When are episodes released?
A: Every Monday, if we can help it.
Q: What about Problem Sleuth? Or Bonus Videos?
A: There are no schedules for bonus content. At all! They come together in our spare time, if we have any.
Q: I saw you have Michael Guy Bowman on your team. Does this mean Homestuck CoLab is endorsed by What Pumpkin Studios©?
A: No. This is not an official endorsement. Michael is part of the project as an individual and thinks it could be fun!
Q: WHEN DO THE TROLLS SHOW UP???
A: Act 5.
Q: Hey, the voice actors are way too fast... SLOW THE HELL DOWN!
A: We're trying our best to keep the speeds within acceptable standards. We know about this already. Please do not send us PM's about this.
