Is this Jane's third death?
Jake will have a memory of the exact same 2008 conversation with Dirk that we already read. A few lines it, he'll realize he's in a dream bubble and then the house collapses and he lands back in the pink moon bubble. The impact from the fall will cause him to black out again.

The things I've gathered in this update :
-I love uu. He's just as fascinated by death scenarios as I am. And he's overjoyed with it. That makes me love him even more.
-I heard people were debating whether Roxy is really dead or not, as it seemed to be a fragment of uu's imagination. For me, her and Jane are dead, but not for good, as their dreamselves are still alive. Now you need someone to do the smooching. I wonder if one of the carapacians can do it, but as it might be super deudly for them, they'd better not dare to try.
We don't actually know if Roxy is dead. It blacked out before uu could see it happen and he just imagined the rest.
Jane will either do the lifey thing again or get revived by Dirk.
Jake... is the one I'm actually woried about. Remember Jane's ruins? It said "hope" would be dead on arrival.
Well she also fakedied when the mail exploded
No, we saw uu's imagination of her dying. What he assumed would happen. The fact that the sesson blacked out implies that she did actually make it in.
And I wouldn't be so sure about Jake... but we shall see. I never said anything about perma-death though. There is a life player in this game, so who's to say she can't revive somebody even when they're already gone?
That was my last update because of the Re-Read and I was really hoping it was a hidden flash but 70 pages is good too :P
I will not react to the update, however, until there are future ones. I'm not exactly sure what will happen next, but I will know on August 3rd I guess
Hell yes, that was an awesome update in so many ways.
I'm... a little worried about Roxy though. Let's hope those lifey powers can bring her back without a body because it doesn't look like anyone's going to be able to corpsmooch-revive her.

Roxy and Dirk aren't dead
This isn't really update related, but is anyone else really, really looking forward to the B1 kids meeting the B2 kids? We already got a taste of how they'll react to each other with Rose and Dave's talk about Roxy, and Dave's reaction to the thought of meeting Dirk sure to pay off interestingly. Also I want to see Rose meet Roxy for real, at least for Rose's reaction to the... differences in their speech/typing styles.
Also, didn't Hussie say at some point that the Felt would appear again? Because as powerful as LE is, the good guys have 8 kids, 5(?) Trolls, two Sprites and a bunch of carapaces and consorts. All of that against one foe would make for a boring fight, narrative wise. On the other hand, a Super Mario Bros. Z style fight flash with all 8 kids battling the Felt on their way to confront Lord English would be absolutely incredible. Anyone agree?
Anyway, they will revive, but lose one of their extra lives. So they will enter with a minor disadvantage.
-Jane's real body can't heal itself as it's a real body, first, and she's too low on her echellader to perform the lifey thing in real. Plus, even if she were able to do it, that would be useless : she wouldn't escape Derse. So either her corpse will be smooched by a dream Dirk who managed to woke up before the miles completely destroy Derse, or her dreamself, wounded and awaken, would rush to her Quest Bed located in Prospit's moon. According to LOCAH's prophecy, the cyan light will faint, then light up once again, and its light will be shinier than ever. That implies a god-tier ascension. No matter what Jane will do : she can't use her dreamself to resurrect her body as real Jane wouldn't escape Derse, so she has no choice but to wander on Prospit for a while, find her Quest Bed and stay there until ascension.
-Roxy's realself is dead, her dreamself is wandering in the Dream Bubbles (and she has some minutes to live until she succumbs to her realself's damage). Jane's realself is dead, but she has still her computer with her. She doesn't have any help around, except the carapacians who can smooch her body. I actually wonder if Roxy's dreamself might be pulled off the Dream Bubbles just after the death of her dreamself, wake up on Derse and help Dream Dirk before his eventual death. Her entry procedure is almost over, and if her Dreamself appears to die, her body can still be thrown in the Kernelsprite. Moreover, AR can take the role as her server player.
-Dirk's dreamself is screwed : he will eventually die, but not before helping Jane (and/or Roxy) out. His realself can survive if Jake wake up as early as possible. Not to mention he has an unplugged window left by GCat in case of emergency. I still think it will be used for later.
-Jake is not safe and sound. He will spend some time with the girl of his dreams in the Dream Bubbles, but not too much time, so he can finish Dirk's entry procedure. Moreover, he left his stuff in his room, now in flames (that's similar to Cascade, when Jade's room exploded following the death of her dreamself ; instead, in B2, it's the house who was destroyed and the room left), so he will enter the medium with the ruins of his house. And with Pyralspite outside, he'd better rush things.
Why is everybody assuming that Roxy is dead? We saw the Red Miles about to strike her, and then she initiated the black-out. The rest is uu's imagination.
For all we know, she became completely sober and did the voidy thing to save herself. I wouldn't be too quick to jump to conclusions. Especially when it comes to anything in Homestuck.
He warned you about the miles bro!
He told you dawg!
Seriously, i think Jane's 'corpse' will simply do a life-y thing again, simply healing her and bringing her back, as it did when Jack attempted to kill her. And she'd gain so many rungs on her echeladder. so many.
Roxy, however, i can see youth-rolling/lass-scampering out of the way in time. She knows how deudly the Miles are, unless it was an instantaneous thing that happened right as the Miles came down in her house, i doubt she'd just stand there in awe of it (or glare at it, as it stands).
Also, i'm going to put out the "lil cal is uu's JuJu" theory, because he wouldnt know about the cal with Gamzee on the meteor. And considering the Cal that Dirk has is the only Cal in this instance (so far), that would imply he can see the little man himself, and i'm assuming the cherubs can't see each other's juju. That would imply its his juju, or the lil man is in his possessions regardless.
Bluh i liked this update
