Okay so I don’t want to get too carried away too quickly but let me start with a bit of background knowledge into this theory. Basically my main jam is Classpect I spend hours of spare time just trying to crunch out more sense of everything we don’t yet know about the remaining titles. This being said I just recently re-read Homestuck and found myself coming face to face with canon evidence (not just the snippet of silly info from Hussie’s formspring I thought it was prior) of the 48 player Squiddle session that created the Trolls’ universe. This namely and unfortunately only being when Karkat exposites briefly upon Alternia’s 48 constellations. Directly comparable to earth’s 12 representing the trolls, this was all the proof I needed to start taking the idea seriously. From there I discovered several things that only briefly hinted at the idea being true one of which is the EVER PREVALENT Yin Yang, 69, mobius double reacharound, Ouroboros iconography that once again seemed to rear its head. In so much that if this supposed session were to exist and have had to scratch, as all known sessions thus far have, then that would be another 48 players making a total of 96 which written in numerical format is a visually inverse 69. A stretch I know but like I said just one of a few TINY things.
The next bit gets into some of my other theory works but just ended up being monstrously helpful. So again a bit of exposition here.
WAY MORE THAN I PLANNED
One of my central interests is colors/color schemes and I make it a point to have a good number of palettes on hand at all times for handy usage inclusive of the 24 Troll player blood castes and respective god tier aspect color sets, all of the pokemon type colors (an unrelated side project), and other assorted colors like the 8 Human kids typing colors derse and prospit color sets and finally the most important and of which was hardest to come by, the proper session colors (which I will provide an explanation and visual for). To begin I’ll explain the specific colors I use and why. Not being able to recollect exactly when, some time ago, I came to the discovery that the 8 human kids colors create a little map of sorts. To explain if you take them and continuously adjust their hue to even specified increments they make a VERY SPECIFIC rainbow of colors one some would recognize as the colors that they not only use, but the session thus far known to canon AS WELL AS MORE. (Remember this tidbit for later.) Now the thing to note about this is that it fringed heavily on a small assumption I made. Basically having the color of the human sessions and the one definitive troll color (I base mine upon the color of their portals shown later on during Doc’s lengthy explanation into how the Handmaid came into his tutelage where it shows her meteor emerging and being intercepted by him). Now the other troll color is the key component there. It wasn’t without much deliberation and trial that I finally settled upon one of two colors from a palette devised by skewing the already known colors with the method I mentioned earlier. It was either going to be a blue very close to serket colors OR a light tan brown very close to nitram colors. The reason being that I invest in the theory that the sessions colors derive from their most important players contributions (though specifically I myself believe it has more to do with something else that they all have in common not how important they were but that doesn’t actually matter here.) In case anyone reading this is unfamiliar with that theory it states that the Red of the Alpha corresponds to Jane, Green to Jade respectively, Purple to Gamzee and then presumably either one of the two I mentioned earlier to either Rufioh or Aranea (which was why there was ALOT of deliberation about which it would be since they both (based on titles and the brief knowledge we have of them pre- and post- scratch)) would contribute in ‘important’ ways. But anyway I chose the tan color after alot of experimentation and went on to use it to make a map of 16 INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT colors.
I’m getting tired of talking about colors though. (As I expect anyone who has bothered to stick around for this long has gotten sick of hearing about them so I will conclude with visuals)
Here you see the two rows of pre-scratch and post-scratch colors aligned as such and then columns designated for whole sessions. In keeping with the pattern I presumed that the next set would work as the colors for a session which would theoretically prelude the Trolls and again for either what would come prior to that session or due to color wheels being just that what would come after the humans session (partially a whole other theory in it’s own right).
Now that we have our colors though and know what they are due to represent I can present an infographic meant to originally to speculate on that fourth possible session there.
It was only after the fact that I realized the potential for what I had discovered but there it is, the final one fitting in nice with the only other known sessions would conveniently fit as the Cherubs session. Now what those indicators of Before and after mean are the relationships to and from each of the session pairs between players. With the Alternian Trolls it was after their session was done that they contacted the kids. With the Alpha kids it was Calliope before the cherub session (Caliborn’s session very specifically NOT hers (this is important for why the Cherub session would even need a scratch)).
Neato how once again we see that Ouroboros iconography in the completeness of this cycle of sessions. And just as an additional visual.
This very simply depicts the sessions within their respective universes, within their respective sessions, within their universes, etc.
(Very casually uses this as a segue)
So while playing around with this to give myself some fresh perspective on the information I already have. I noticed a remarkable “coincidence”. To explain, as seen above, I use the presumably largest sessions (the 48 player squiddle sessions) as the outer most parts of the cycle. However, an interesting little thing presented itself when I thought about what comes outside of that. Namely (presumably) the Cherub session Scratch (Calliope’s session) which interestingly enough…

…interestingly enough create a remarkably “coincidental” aesthetic directly comparable to the Green Sun. Even more to the point though. The following image from depicting Rose in the epitome of her grimdark state (the avatar of the horrorterrors) and quite appropriately with a huge PINK SUN to directly reference what my theory would hold as the ‘Squiddles’ Pre-scratch session.
There might’ve been more I wanted to explain but it’s now midnight and I am too tired to continue but there it is, the revelation in all its wonder.
