Besides MSPA, how many children has AH sired? ======== Do you people not understand how the ask box works. Why are you doing this. But if you mean his comics, he’s had a lot. Here’s a list of them: http://www.andrewhussie.com/comics.php He also ran a blog for a while but he doesn’t do that anymore.

Question: Is the tiger too fast for anybody to catch!? I gotta know!
Hussie: Only I am fast enough. I get to got tiger all the time.
Question: That was 8some !!!!!!!! ::::)
I know trolls can get pretty polygamous what with their quadrants and all, but wow.
Question: You've been up to something lately, right? Your updates are less frequent now...
Hussie: All I've really been up to is not working on it 24/7. Not working on a thing 24/7 shouldn't really need an explanation. Like nobody goes up to you and asks you why you aren't working on a thing 24/7, because that's a nutty thing to ask someone. Unless you have trained a very large population to expect this behavior from you over an uninterrupted period spanning three years. In which case my strong advice to such a person who has done that is: ???????????????
The animation took 4 days or so, but really it wasn't especially long and something like that should have taken me about 2 days or maybe less if I were working in Hell Mode. But I had a lot of other important things to do which stretched out the time. For instance, watching some episodes of 30 Rock. I also ran some unsuccessful errands, like I went to the UPS Store to mail my stupid broken iPhone back to Apple, because it's dumb and broken and I kind of hate it. But the UPS Store's computer wasn't working or something, so I left. I went back again another day, but it was the same story. I muddled around with some tweens and and cajoled a billion little image files, saved in photoshop one by one and imported into Flash which is technology on par with a broken iphone in terms of raw aggravation factor. I went to Starbucks a bunch of times and bought some coffee, and at one point I netflixed Robocop on the PS3, and wound up fast forwarding through all the scenes where he was sitting around without his helmet on looking weird and talking about his robofeelings, because the movie wasn't really as good as I wanted to remember it being. I horsed around with some cats, by which I guess I mean coexisted with them which is mostly all you do with a pet ultimately. The younger one has taken to nursing on the slightly not as young one, which is weird because she is like her adopted older sister who is barely even much bigger than her. But the older one seems fine with it and actually starts purring, because pretty much every cat in the world is as least partially insane. At some point I realized I should stop shitting around and get down to fucking business. I dug deep down to tap into my inner reserves of determination and strength, and with all of my mettle brought to bear on the task I buckled down and was finally able to watch another 10 or 15 episodes of 30 Rock.
And then I finished the animation.
As for what I did today, i.e. the day after posting it, I don't know. Mostly sitting around thinking about how I want to execute some stuff coming up next, and revising some overly ambitious plans which were certainly made in the heat of labor-addled delirium. Also I did some other stuff. I made some pasta, and drove some cardboard boxes somewhere.
What did you do today? : )
Fedorafreak: Will I ever get a story arc?
Hussie: You are the name of the wifi connection in my house.
Question: So older trolls keep their lusii, instead of abandoning them?
Hussie: Yes. Unless the lusus is killed, or any number of things that could happen to separate them.
But ideally, the lusus stays for life, and as was implied may even play a role in the troll's profession, as a mount or such.

Anonymous asked: I'd be interested in that link to the text copy of all of Hussie's questions and answers. :D (I'm not the same guy who asked that question though, just to be clear.)
Question: Just wanna say it was awesome for you to put a link to that video in the latest update. In case you haven't seen it, the person who posted it says thank you.
Hussie: That guy is pretty cool. It's nice reading his responses to the comments, which are delightfully gracious. He seems so genuinely enthusiastic about spreading the word about old victrola recordings.
"That is Wonderful. Do thank Mr. Hussie for me, and also all of you wonderful homestuck fans who appreciate and support my continuing efforts to bring my Historic and eclectic collection of early recordings to a new generation of listeners.
You are welcome, Victrolaman. Keep cranking out the classics!!!!!
Question: I don't care what anyone says, I loved your record updates. They made me so very very happy. BUT GET ON WITH IT, LAD
Hussie: To be fair, if I were working at "normal speed", updates over the last 5 days could easily have been compressed into one day. I kinda doubt anybody would be urging me to get on with it if that were the case.
Regardless, here is some additional perspective on the matter of the pressing need for plot advancement.
Do you recall that at one point, WV spent about three weeks fucking around with cans in a bunker before he finally blasted off? In Act 1, we watched John launch cakes out of his sylladex for two months before we even discovered the story had a plot.
This is how this works. At times it advances through stretches of unremarkable events wherein characters are given space to fool around. The story then continues to build on the details that accumulate. That is how every story on this website has been created, and the practice has been adhered to religiously.
Sometimes, even in the heat of my most productive periods, these "goofing around phases" still represent a kind of decompression. When I am just not quite ready to ATTACK major plot advancement in the manner that it would require, and it's simpler and more sustainable to mess around, do silly things, and keep production relatively light weight.
I remember when WV was horsing around with Can Town, there were similar murmurs of impatience, and many believed firmly it couldn't possibly be going anywhere that served the story. Nobody could know his big can in the desert would blast off soon, let alone that a year later, for reasons they couldn't yet fathom, thousands of teenagers to smear gray makeup all over their faces because of stuff that happened in this story. What could possibly happen later that would cause this??? Pretty hard to imagine, when you're the guy in December of '09, impatiently waiting for WV to eat parts of a pumpkin, drink Tab, and play chess with himself.
To find out, you had to be in it for the long haul, as you must now be. I will do what I am going to do, and one way or another, it will get where it's headed. It always does.
Question: Did you name the Midnight Crew after the Eddie Morton song or was it coincidence?
Hussie: I didn't even name the Midnight Crew. The name was submitted through a donation command before Homestuck. I named and designed the members of the group to complete the request. It began here, and there are several others.
Like many things in donation commands (zillyhoo, doomsday dice cascader...) the MC was adapted into Homestuck through the elaborate plot devices you may recall, driven by the usual MSPA meta-humor which you have grown to [feel some way about], which at this very moment continues unabated. (Remember the MC was introduced in HS as the MSPA adventure the kids could read if they visited MSPA.com. Then it turned out that MSPA was, in a way, a viewport into the troll universe, where the MC was real, and consisted of Jack & co. as exiles on Alternia.)
But I didn't know about the Morton song until Radiation adapted samples from it into Black, which accompanied [S] Jack: Ascend.
The song was recorded 100 years before HS began. There's not much info out there on the guy or the song. Would anyone be all that surprised if it was released on 4/13/1909?
pretty sure that wasn’t on hussie’s formspring, to the guy who submitted me the neon green underwear + dick. i think i’d have remembered if it was.
Anonymous asked: So, you get the answers by reading his forums? Am I right? (Sorry, I'm new here)
Question: How is it that Sollux is mackin on all the troll ladies, and yet manages to have so little screentime?
Hussie: Sollux macks twofold. We do not see his activity very often because it is TOO HOT FOR THE WEB.
He doesn't do much in the story because he is a supporting character. He is the guy who stuff happens to, rather than a guy who does stuff. Until further notice.
This again raises the issue of supporting characters vs. major characters. Sure he would be a stronger and more interesting character if he had the screen time to allow it. But we must imagine this SHADOW PLOT wherein he occupies this time and does interesting things, and all the existing pages and action which that must necessarily be crowded out in favor of developing him that way. Is it worth it? Maybe, if you are a huge Sollux fan. But in this dimension, that is not the role he plays in an otherwise very busy story, and that's just how it is.
Question: Can a troll and a human mate? And I don't just mean have sex I mean could they have kids? Do trolls even have sex organs similar to humans?
Hussie: This entire line of thought could be so much more PG than people seem to want it to be.
All that's required to reproduce is an ectobiology lab.
Question: May we assume that all adult trolls have wings, or are trolls granted wings upon being reborn in the quest recuperacoon?
Hussie: I don't know, do you see any wings on Karkat's movie posters?
I guess maybe it's possible troll actors get their wings clipped...
Question: Hivebent? With all that blood everywhere maybe you should be calling it HIVebent!?
Hussie: This joke makes no sense.
Question: So if past experiences are anything to go by, since you've yet to get to the Final Boss Homestuck is less the half over right? Chapter 7 will be a doosie.
Hussie: My plan at the moment is to make Act 7 serve as pure wrap up. Perhaps consisting only of several significant animations.
If that is that case, then Act 6 would function as the last "normal" act.
But you know how these things go. Plans can change.
i just got about 30 followers overnight on this (usually i only get about 1 or 2 a day) i think this is a hint i should probably stop being lazy and refill the queue … too bad im really bad at taking hints.
Question: http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6 is the URL of page one of Homestuck. But when you replace the 6 with a number 1-5 you get the different MSPAs that youve done before, including HS Beta. However 3 is a single bloody spade titled ??????. Explain please?
Hussie: It's the Midnight Crew adventure I didn't do.
In the Homestuck universe, MSPA is currently running that MC adventure.
And in the troll universe, that adventure is actually taking place, on post apocalyptic Alternia.
Question: Now go read a shit load of novels by Westerners because you hate any kind of mention of “the animes”, which many of your fan base is interested in. Hussie: I don’t actually hate the animes, I just sort of shrug at them theatrically for hilarious purposes. The animes represent a wide body of entertainment which includes some good stuff, as well as an absolutely...
Question: WAIT. Trolls cry blood?
If you have brown hair and brown eyes, dose that mean there is a lot of hair in your iris???
Nope. It is because the eyes and hair are saturated with a common ingredient called melanin.
Trolls' physiology is saturated with a similar ingredient, specific to their position on the hemospectrum. It heavily colors their blood, and tints their tears.
