Earth C is the name used to describe the incarnation of Earth that exists in the universe created as the result of the B2 session. More specifically, it is the same planet as Future post-scratch Earth, but captchalogued by Vriska Serket who “rode the meteor through the g8, watched it crash on Earth, then just captchalogued the whole damn thing and got out of there.”, given to John Egbert to give to Jade Harley to bring it into the new universe, where it became the seat of a new civilization. In the distant future, this Earth, long since abandoned by other sentient life, became the birthplace and home of the Cherubs Caliborn and Calliope.
The period of time during which Earth C was inhabited by the Homestuck Kids, the surviving A2 Trolls, Calliope, and the Carapacians and Consorts taken with them into the new universe, is the time period during which The Homestuck Epilogues are set.
History[edit | edit source]
A new Earth[edit | edit source]
First during Act 7 and then the Credits of Homestuck, it is shown that this Earth was once again seeded with life, including that of humans, trolls, carapacians, and consorts. After travelling 5000 years into the future to allow civilization to establish itself, the planet has become divided into four distinct kingdoms;
- The Human Kingdom is shown being overseen by Jane Crocker, John Egbert, Dad, and Nannasprite.
- The Troll Kingdom is shown being overseen by Dave Strider, Jade Harley, Karkat Vantas, and Terezi Pyrope.
- The Carapace Kingdom is shown being overseen by Rose Lalonde, Kanaya Maryam, Roxy Lalonde, and Calliope.
- The Consort Kingdom is shown being overseen by Jake English, Dirk Strider, and Gcatavrosprite.
The Homestuck Epilogues (Dubiously Canon)[edit | edit source]
The Homestuck Epilogues take place seven years after the arrival of these principal characters, from their perspective. These epilogues exist "outside of canon", and across two timelines. The Meat timeline, treated as the "more canon" timeline, involves a conflict in which:
- Dirk takes control of the narrative and enters into a battle for authorial authority with Alternate Calliope.
- John travels back into canon to kill Lord English, finds Terezi, and is ultimately killed.
- Jane becomes president of Earth, despite emerging fascist leanings, due to Dirk's influence and support for his ally.
- Rose Lalonde undergoes a crisis while attaining her Ultimate Self, has her consciousness transferred into a robot, and is taken by Dirk on a spaceship to a mysterious destination, joined by Terezi.
The Meat timeline is the timeline in which the events described in Caliborn's masterpiece occur.
The Candy timeline, treated as the "less canon" timeline, involves a narrative in which:
- Jane becomes de-facto fascist dictator of Earth, enters into a toxic relationship with Jake and Gamzee Makara, and wages war against a revolutionary force lead by Karkat and partially consisting of ghosts who fell into a black hole in the other timeline.
- Dirk Strider commits suicide in order to consolidate his power in the other timeline.
- John marries Roxy, the two have children, but divorce after John attempts to kidnap Jane and Jake's child, only to reconcile years later.
- Dave meets a hologram of Barack Obama who helps him attain his Ultimate Self and transfer his consciousness into a robot.
The far future[edit | edit source]
Long after the previous time period, the events covered in Homestuck proper pick up again.
The planet's star by this point has long since become a "massive" red supergiant, reducing the planet's surface to a wasteland scattered with a large number of ruined, JPEG-artifacted Statues of Liberty added by Dirk's Bro. It was discovered by a cherub looking to lay his egg after losing his mating battle. He laid his egg and flew off, and soon after Calliope and Caliborn hatched from the egg and were adopted by Gamzee Makara. At some point, Gamzee, for unknown reasons, chained Calliope and Caliborn up in a room in the trolls' meteor.
A strange computer connected to a broadcast tower is also located on this Earth, displaying the current act and narration on the page and allows a user to converse with the narrator. During the course of his quest, Caliborn has unlocked
After meeting with Yaldabaoth and making his choice, Caliborn left Earth and headed to the minor planets in his session. Upon conquering all these minor planets, Earth transformed into the Land of Colours and Mayhem. After a trivial act of self-suicide, Caliborn went god tier, found a building in the shape of Lil' Cal's head, where he wrote shitty comics and fought John.
