FANDOM


Being part of the internet, some members of Route 50 are fans of the webcomic Homestuck. They are sometimes referred to as Homestuckians, Homestuckers, or simply Homestucks.

History

In 2011, Homestuck gained overwhelming popularity on Route 50, even overtaking Pokemon content. This led to strong backlash from various members, some of whom themselves were dedicated readers of Homestuck. As one fan noted, "[Almost] everyone finds Homestuck cool, but most people hate the fans."

By the Gigapause of 2013-2014, the fandom had mostly calmed down, with some readers losing interest while a few detractors became readers. Others remained dedicated to or averse to Homestuck, up to and beyond the comic's finale on 2016.

Fan Projects

Roleplaying

During the fandom's boom in 2011, members took to using the pesterchum handles and typing quirks of their favorite characters. Much to Sky's annoyance, some roleplayers began writing in the second-person perspective associated with MSPA. There was also a Sburb roleplay in 2011.

Routebent

As on many other art sites, Homestuck motivated various Rt50ites to create their own 'fantrolls', with their own Sgurb profiles. For a long time, Silvair was working on a project called Routebent that worked with everyone's fantrolls.

Influence

Due to the popularity of crackships in Route 50 roleplays, some began referring to crackships as "kissmessitude", referring to the black quadrant of Troll romance.
