I found myself wondering what it would look like if you took Homestuck panels and made them the frames of a video. Turns out it looks kinda cool. It's a nice way to see the whole story from above, as it were. (Spoilers, obviously!)

This is meant to be an experiment, not an especially professional or well-done video. It took about five minutes to make. The flashes aren't included because that would take too much effort. The video continues for a bit after the song is over because, even with various frame rates, I couldn't get the end of the song to line up with any natural ending point in the story. Someone who actually knows what they're doing could probably make a much better version of this (and probably already has).

The song is "The Walk" by Imogen Heap, which I listened to on loop all the way through Homestuck (both of the two times I've read it). Maybe it's just the power of association, but I feel it fits the comic well -- the way it slowly builds is appropriate for the gradual accumulation of plot threads, and the lyrics are about giving in and accepting the inevitable, which is plot-relevant for obvious reasons.
