- From the reader's point of view, Gamzee's story in The Homestuck Epilogues: Candy picks up from where his Canon biography ended. His story in The Homestuck Epilogues: Meat begins when John interrupts him bringing Aranea back to life.
Caliborn and Lil Seb when the eight kids , apparently contributing little to the ensuing fight save for from the sidelines. Eventually, he is cut in half and sucked into Lil Cal along with Arquiusprite and Caliborn.
Shortly after John selects candy, Calliope makes one request for John to use his retcon powers: “let poor gamzee oUt of the fridge, john.” They believe that if a new era of amends is to start for everyone, then even he deserves a chance. John begrudgingly complies, and zaps back into canon to retrieve him. The moment John retrieves the fridge from is depicted as the scene where Dave and Dirk Strider after their intense heart-to-heart, despite the fridge at that moment and location in canon.
After arriving back on Earth C, John opens the fridge gingerly and Gamzee bursts out gasping and sweating. After an extended display of hacking, coughing, and crying, he begins to express his regrets for being a “bItCh AsS nAuGhTy MoThErFuCkEr.” Calliope comforts him throughout his self-pitying soliloquy, as he recounts his epiphanies about how awfully he had treated his friends, followed by justifications about how his upbringing from his lusus and his place in Alternian society are to blame for putting him on a harmful life path. He vows to begin a redemption arc, and Calliope and Roxy congratulate and embrace him, as John walks away. A crowd of carapacians gather around Gamzee throughout his sobbing.
It is revealed that at some point Gamzee entered a polyamorous relationship with Jane Crocker and Jake English, and their son refers to him as his "uncle." It is noted multiple times throughout the story that Gamzee drinks Jane's breast milk. He is faithful to Jane throughout her presidency, but Jane grows increasingly xenophobic and genocidal. Jane eventually ends things with Gamzee, who is sad and has to be forcibly removed by her security team. It is implied that Jane also had genuine feelings for Gamzee.Gamzee then encounters Vriska Serket, who just landed on Earth C. An already upset Vriska explodes when Gamzee puts his "sticky" hand on her shoulder, and begins beating him violently. She grinds her shoe into his face and he begins to lick her foot and attempt to suck her big toe through the footwear. This is the third time in the Candy epilogue that it has been implied that Gamzee has a foot fetish. They then kiss, and when Gamzee takes out his phone to text Karkat Vantas about what just happened, Vriska murders him with her bare hands.
