Earth is a planet. It is one of four main settings of Homestuck, and it is one of two main settings of Hiveswap. It is the birthplace of humans, and the landing point and home of the kids. It is also, in the distant future, the birthplace of Caliborn and Calliope.

Differences Between the Earth Sessions[edit | edit source]
In the post-scratch session:
- The Children-Guardian roles have been swapped, e.g., John is now the deceased Poppop and Nanna is the young Jane Crocker.
- The four kids do not live at the same time: Dirk and Roxy arrive on Earth 4 centuries after Jake and Jane.
- Crockercorp is a shadowy multiglobal company rumored to spread propaganda through advertisements and products.
- The Condesce takes over Earth and attempts to recreate her former empire, flooding the planet and ultimately almost completely wiping out the human race.
- Sburb is in Alpha instead of Beta.
- The Sburb logo is red and flipped horizontally.
- The author of MS Paint Adventures didn't create Midnight Crew, and is instead updating Problem Sleuth 2.
- Bro, as an adult, has turned Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff into a movie franchise, beginning with Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff: The Moive.
- The stupidly dangerous green ghost ride owned by John isn't on Jane's lawn.
- Sburb doesn't release until 11/11/11, by which time the kids are three and a half years older than their pre-scratch counterparts were.
- Children receive Honorary Placronyms giving them their names on their 13th birthday. It is considered an honorary rite of passage.
