Whoops. Sorry about that, Anon. It’s the one by Janelle Monáe~

To the Mods: I think what you're doing is really great for the homestuck community! It must been quite hard moderating and organizing an online event with only two people and I just wanted to thank you for doing this for all of us and hope you have a lovely day!

Aw. Bless u, Anon. We both really appreciate it. Gosh, you guys are nice~

It can be quite a bit of work, yeah (particularly since we’re both in different time-zones and have to work on the blog when we might otherwise be sleeping or something, since that’s the time the majority of you are online…), but I’d say the pros vastly outweigh the cons. Just being able to get so many of you together and excited and having a good time over something we’re all mutually enthusiastic about is a grand enough pay-off for all the work that goes into putting HSP together, I’d say. Plus, I find that running the blog and interacting with you guys is always riotously amusing in and of itself, so thank you guys, for being such a blast to mod~

Still only 10 candidates for Prom Court?!

Come on, kids, if you really want a shot at prom court and haven’t gotten an acknowledgement message from us, you’d better get to work stirring up some hype and loyalty. Win some hearts. Kiss some babies, you feel me? Remember, you only need 10 nominations to make it onto the ballot~

ONLY 14 DAYS UNTIL THE INBOX CLOSES TO NOMINATIONS. GO, GO, GO!

Hello! For prom court campaign, does it have to be IC as the character you're cosplaying to prom, or can it just be as 'you' (Even if you're still cosplaying on prom night)

Either or~

We’ve had successful campaigns where the candidates have run in-character and out of character, in or out of cosplay, so it’s really up to you~

sorry if this is a dumb question but we're allowed to pick any song we want for the dance off right?

No apologies necessary, we’ve heard way dumber questions in our day.

You’ve got it. You can dance to any song you’d like, and once you send us your video submission, we’ll posit up on the dance-off page (speaking of which, DANCE-OFF VIDEOS. SEND US SOME.) However, the final, “official” Dance-Off video is like a compilation, dig? And that video will be set to Dance Apocalyptic. So for convenience’s sake, you may find it easier to just dance to that.

But ultimately, yeah, you can dance to whatever the shell you want~

So are we doing karaoke because that would be sick (just checkin up on progress ;u;)

The sickest~ That is definitely a thing that we want to do, and as we speak (or…type), Mod R. is elbow-deep in experimentation re: how to best accomplish a 2,000 person virtual karaoke party. Not the easiest of tasks, no, but I’m confident that between the 2,4-hundred-something of us, we’ve got enough reserves of ambition to somehow pull it off. Like 10 whole ambitions, at least.

For the Homestuck prom, is it ONLY in real life it can it be online also?

Homestuck Prom is pretty much ONLY online except for the rare few of us who can and want to organize something in real life! But most of us will be just on the interwebs!

*Mod R. interjects:*

That is, as far as the majority of organized prom events and interactive areas go, at least. Externally, you’re free to celebrate by yourself or with friends in any way you can think of, whether that be heading to a meet on prom night, inviting your moirail over for photos and a two-person dance party, making themed decorations, and snacks, as much as you care to do IRL to complement the online prom shenanigans, dig~

What were campaigns like last year??? Like what did people do to convince us to vote for them??

The vast majority of last year’s campaigns came in video format, and followed the structure of the candidate simply spelling out why they wanted the throne. There was, of course, variety even within that. 2013 Prom King caldirk wrote his campaign slogan on his face in lipstick, Prom Queen lord-ponty wrote and performed possibly the catchiest ditty to ever exist on ukelele imploring promgoers to “VOT3 T3R3Z1”, and others created slideshows, fantastically amusing power points and expository text posts, and even a rap in attempt to win the allegiance of voters. It was  gr8.

But hell, rather than explain it all to you in slow, lurid detail, why don’t I just show you? You can check them out for yourself if you’d like~

How many eligible candidates are there for all the roles so far???

By candidates and roles, I assume you’re asking about Prom Court. 

Currently, there are 10 people on the ballot altogether, 3 candidates for Prom Queen, 3 for King, and 4 for Mayor of Prom Town. 

If you’re asking about how many people have been nominated altogether, we have something like 47 total nominees, some of whom are mad close to officially making it into the running with the current ten~
