Hiatus of the personal variety!

I'm about to start the third act of Homestuck. Before I began reading this story, I hated the very concept of Homestuck with a burning passion that often manifested in a surplus of caps lock and more vulgarity in one paragraph than in every Rapture log combined. See, I've heard a lot of hype, and 90% of the hype I hear for Homestuck advertises things I hate very dearly. Add that to the fact that I have a strong aversion to popular things, and you can bet I wasn't looking forward to reading this thing.

Now that I've read the first two acts, I can tell you I like most of what I've read, almost all. Though there's still plenty of stuff I don't like, I tend to just ignore those. Now, I gotta be honest, I'm not really looking forward to reading the rest. I hear a lot of.. criticisms for the story past a certain point. ...but I'm sure I'll be better after I sleep! I'm exhausted!

..I shouldn't have said "I'm about to start the third act;" I meant that's where I am in the story. And I'm gonna sleep. And then I will start the third act.

So, uh... my writing is kinda on hiatus until I either catch up with or drop out of Homestuck.
