  • Glorious Echeladder Ascension Technique - A Homestuck/Exalted Crossover

    Hey all, just wanted to start a topic for my current big writing project, Glorious Echeladder Ascension Technique. I thought it'd be good to keep a running topic on here for updates and any questions people might have.

    The first chapter is up, so let me know if you enjoy!

      Awesome! I'm glad. Anything in particular that's stood out to you?

        I was kinda curious why karkat exalted as a defiler, was ,malfeas as his patron too obvious?

          Well, I thought about it, and yeah, Slayer Karkat was still a bit obvious. There's some other stuff going on that would be spoilers, but I was trying to get across that he took the bargain out of a sense of guilt - he didn't know what he was getting everyone into, and he should have understood the game better. If he had, there wouldn't have been nearly as much death, Gamzee might not have flipped his shit, and they might have succeeded without unleashing Lord English or Bec Noir. She Who Lives in Her Name is all about understanding rules and mechanics, and she made the offer because she knew he blamed himself for everything that happened.

            I now realize that I've been neglecting to post the chapters as they get added to the fic, so here's Chapter 2.

                Ooo... Two of my favorite things coming together. Yay! I wonder which ones will get the Sideral Exaltation? Rose is obvious, but what about the other three? Maybe the rest of her group? Anyways, great work so far.

                  Chapter 4 is nearly ready for publishing, but that's not the real reason I made this post: I'd like to see if people can see what (or who) the sutras at the beginning of each chapter refer to.

                  If you'd like a hint:
                  So far, only Chapter 3's sutra refers to a specific character. Chapter 4's will as well.

                    Chapter 1 and 2 sound like, well, Homestuck, the game. Friends who struggle and win a game, a maiden who creates a new world but cannot return to her own.

                    Not sure about chapter 3. There is an abundance of characters who grow up alone and I don't remember who might be "friends with beasts".

                      Hmmm... nice response. I'd like to see some other guesses, if anybody has any, before I reveal the answers.

                        Chapter 4 is posted! I had a lot of fun with this one's sutra.

                          LIVE, MY THREAD! LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVE!

                          So, yes, after far, FAR too many life complications, Chapter 5 is done. Things will be updated much more quickly for the next few chapters, as well. You'll see why~

                            This is ~amazing~. I couldn't be happier. You are combining two of my favorite things - Exalted and Vriska. I mean Homestuck.

                              Always nice to hear! Don't worry, you'll get your fill of Vriska. Though to be honest I think her best stuff for a while is in the chapter I just posted. At least the best I have planned.
