Homestuck Fan Theories
Lil Cal, Glasses, and a possible villainous partnership?

I literally just thought of this, and maybe other people have already thought about this, but here’s the deal.

Lil Cal has been in Dave, Dirk, Terezi, Gamzee, and Jack Noir’s possession so far. Recently, Jack Noir looked into Lil Cal’s eyes and saw Caliborn’s soul. Then Caliborn was able to control him and Jack Noir went on a rampage.

Gamzee had Lil Cal earlier, and he looked into Lil Cal’s eyes. Caliborn then convinced him to stop eating the sopor slime. Why? Because the sopor slime may have been delaying the reaction to looking in Lil Cal’s eyes, and acted as sort of a barrier between Gamzee and Caliborn. But eventually the sopor slime wasn’t enough and Caliborn got through to Gamzee and he went on a rampage. 

Now here’s where Dave, Dirk, and Terezi become important. They have all had Lil Cal, but none of them have gone on murderous rampages. Why?

Well, what do they all have in common?

THEY ALL HAVE SOMETHING BLOCKING THEIR EYESIGHT. Dave and Dirk wear those thick shades, and those act as a barrier between them and Caliborn. Terezi was blinded, and her blindness may have been what kept her from falling under Caliborn’s control. 

But now Terezi can see again, and that puts her in real danger of looking in Lil Cal’s eyes and being under Caliborn’s control. 

Now here’s where things get really… out-there.

Aranea orchestrated Terezi getting her sight back. She used Gamzee to make her feel guilty enough to make Terezi ask her for her sight back. I’ve been reading some Aranea theories lately, and what the main theme seems to be is that Aranea wants to become, and even surpass, Mindfang. Aranea wants to make every aspect of Mindfangs’ life become a part of her life, including Mindfang’s rivalry with Redglare. So Aranea wants Terezi to be her new rival.

But what has Aranea got to do with everything else I just mentioned? Let’s loop back to when Gamzee had Lil Cal and was eating the sopor slime. At one point Gamzee stopped eating the sopor slime, looked in Lil Cal’s eyes, and went on a rampage. This may be because ARANEA TOLD HIM TO. Nobody really knows how long Aranea was controlling Gamzee, we just know she was definitely controlling him during Gamzee and Terezi’s kismessisitude. What if her controlling him started earlier, though?

But if Aranea knew Gamzee was going to go crazy, what would she gain from it? Maybe she just wanted to give Terezi another obstacle, to make her a stronger rival. Think of when Vriska was trying to strengthen Tavros. She was trying to strengthen him because she thought it would help him. Maybe Aranea was trying to indirectly strengthen Terezi so that when she overcame her struggle with Gamzee, Aranea would have a harder fight ahead of her (assuming she DOESN’T know Gamzee is impossible to kill). 

But then why in the most recent updates did Gamzee go from being so serene and almost asleep, to raging all over the place and throwing Terezi around? Because CALIBORN AND ARANEA’S CONTROLS ARE CONFLICTING WITH EACHOTHER. Aranea made Gamzee fall peacefully asleep because she was tired of hearing him talk, while Caliborn made Gamzee go crazy after Gamzee looked into Lil Cal’s eyes. Aranea was getting her soul ripped out of her by Brain Ghost Dirk, and that’s what made her lose control of Gamzee and re-instated Caliborn’s control of him. So Aranea and Caliborns’ controls are just CANCELING EACHOTHER OUT, switching back and forth.

In some ways, Aranea was using Caliborn’s control of Gamzee to her advantage, so that Gamzee could wipe out as many of the other trolls as possible and give Aranea less strings to tie. But in other ways it worked against her, and now Gamzee is actually beating Terezi. Without Terezi, Aranea would have no rivalry, and would make her less like Mindfang. Meanwhile Caliborn probably has no idea what Aranea is up to, and probably doesn’t even know who she is. Caliborn just kind of does his own thing, and at the moment he’s harrassing John with his fake world Homosuck.

So, without Caliborn even knowing it, he and Aranea are actually WORKING TOGETHER.

But what if the two of them actually MET? Could they strike a villainous partnership??? Did I just make two theories instead of one big theory??? Am I just stating the obvious??? I don’t even know anymore. Just wanted to get this off my chest. I probably made a lot of mistakes XD. 

Is there any way Kanaya could still achieve god tier?

i highly doubt it

The Ultimate Reward

Hussie stated in some formspring that a 48-player squiddle session created the Trolls’ universe. That got me thinking…Most people interpreted that as a joke, but what if it wasn’t? The players of this session likely received the Ultimate Reward, and would canonically guard Beforus. When it scratched, they would need to take shelter.

So what became of the players of this session? My personal theory is that they became the Horrorterror (wiki page on the Horrorterrors list this too.) There are 48 Horrorterrors, 48 signs of the troll zodiac.

The Ultimate Reward turned what was probably a normal batch of players into unthinkable monsters. 

Maybe we should be glad the Rift stopped Karkat from touching the reward.

Eridan will return theory

What do you think of the “Eridan will return” theory?

Basically, it says that it is likely for Eridan to return to Homestuck, considering that:

1- He’s killed angels/cherubs before, on his planet.

2- He has a magic wand, which is apparently Lord English’s weakness.

3- He has rings on all of his fingers, but one. Could be used for the Ring of Life.

You know how Jake created Brain-Ghost Dirk during the most recent update? And Dirk said something along the lines of, "Leave my boyfriend alone," to Aranea. Does that mean Jake still wants to be boyfriends with him, since BG Dirk said that? Idk. :1

It’s possible… I dunno. I personally feel like this ship is probably sunk but there can always be hope.

uh, i don't really know if this has been said before but terminallyCapricious = dies whilst being 'capricious'?

I myself am currently blanking on the meaning of the word “capricious” but still sounds good. Who knows what’s possible with Gamzee.

Do trolls invade other planets once they're old enough?

I always assumed that they do. Seems kinda awesome. Any thoughts followers?

I might be super late to the party here, buuuut. I think the reason Terezi killed Vriska instead of being able to find away around it was because Vriska "stole her fortune". Terezi then had bad luck and could see no other solutions, but to kill her even though she didn't want to. Because Terezi didn't want her to die, her bad luck did exactly what she didn't want, which resulted in Vriska's death. VRISKA KILLED HERSELF ON ACCIDENT, MaYBE???
Do the Trolls actually know Human History? Not Likely…

You know… Once you really think about it, it doesn’t seem like the trolls TRULY know any human history.

The main reason I think this is because of the fact they say that humans aren’t very violent and hardly kill.

But how can that be when most of human history is insanely full of blood and slaughter? Our history is full of violence, assignations, massive execution of races because of religious belief, slavery because of skin or race and/or religious belief, massacres, torture, war, war crimes, slaughter, murder, kidnaping, concurring, invasion, bombing, shootings, ect. That doesn’t just harm and/or kill those who want to be involved, but innocents, without any justifiable reason prior to it, just for power, money, hate, and/or without any kind of truly logically realistic reason to even do it in the first place.

Then there is the way they talk to the kids about things.

The Trolls repeatedly say and reference things that, because of historical occurrences in the human timeline, is so highly taboo had they been made human themselves Homestuck would be under extremely hot water. But since they’re an alien race, one that has no prior contact with earth, most fans usually can brush off these comments, even though we do have to wonder why the kids don’t point this out when being called ignorant by a troll.

i think i just unintentionally gave proof that karkat might be a hypocrite


My theory is that the combined troll-kid session’s end result is our universe. i have no canonical evidence except for the fact that johns universe is simply called the “kids universe.” chew on that.
