Rose Lalonde first appears in Volume 2: 'Something Beyond The Sky'. She also appears in Volume Four: 'The Loneliest Girl In The World' in the group end. MSPA reader mentions her by her handle in Volume 5 Route 2: 'I Have Plenty Of Friends'.


In The Homestuck Epilogues[edit | edit source]

From the reader's point of view, Rose's story in The Homestuck Epilogues picks up from where her Canon biography ended.

At some point after arriving in Universe C, Rose becomes ill and begins having visions relating to her transformation into her Ultimate Self. She relates some of these visions to John, informing him that he has to travel back into the Furthest Ring and defeat Lord English in order to maintain Canon.

Rose's life on Earth C differs depending on whether John follows through on her mission or not.

Retcon-recruited teen[edit | edit source]

After John uses his retcon powers to zap from the epilogues back into the story proper, he recruits god tier Rose from some unknown point in canon, presumably after the meteor's arrival in the B2 session, for the mission to fight Lord English. He then brings Rose, along with the other teen beta and alpha kids, to his own backyard on April 6th, 2009. As John gets lost in nostalgia, Dave asks John what happens to everyone in the retconned timelines, and Rose seconds the concern, specifically citing Kanaya. John struggles to answer, but gives a lukewarm speech about sacrifice, and the group begins a messy planning session for the coming battle. John walks away for a while as everyone reunites, and when he returns, Roxy is sitting in the grass with Rose. John hesitantly approaches the group and Rose approaches him, helping him to vocalize that it's time for the group to head out. Everyone gets up, holds hands in a circle, and zaps away. They find themselves in a strange, dark place. Jade quickly sniffs out Caliborn, who has an intense staredown with John, brags about his MASTERPIECE, and laughs at them all as the fight begins. Not many details are given of the ensuing battle, but the narration seems to indicateMeat.png the kids put up more of a fight against the cherub than the initial claymation had implied. Caliborn eventually feels overwhelmed and unleashes the Juju on the four beta kids, much to their shock. They all get sucked into it almost instantaneously, and Caliborn laughs at them as he returns the Juju to the chest and closes it.

After landing in the impossibly bright white prison, Rose quickly tries to account for the rest of the group being present and safe, with John finally answering her last. She is relieved and slumps against the wall. Each of the kids is secluded from the others in one of the four main chambers that the Juju contains, and as shown in Act 7, this matches their arrangement on the exile stations' computer monitors. From below, Dave and Jade are discussing how they respectively can't feel time or space within the prison. As the fight between the alpha kids and Caliborn rages louder outside, Rose tries to ask John what her future self's plan was. John tries to fill her in, but none of them can hear each other no matter how loud they shout. Once John gives up on shouting, Rose apparently remains quiet for a while as Dave and Jade loudly reminisce below. John eventually chimes back in with more success to shout to the other kids that THE JUJU HAS TO UNLOAD, and all they can do is wait (for quadrillions of years, from an outside perspectiveMeat.png).

After the Juju's eternity in the Furthest Ring and Homestuck CanonHS.svg, Vriska eventually unleashes itHS.svg against Lord English, and John and the others emerge from the Juju just after Vriska is sucked into the black hole herself. Rose, Dave, and Jade stand confused and frightened behind John as they all take in the scene of the black hole, the ghosts falling into it, and Lord English himself. The Juju disappearsMeat.png behind the four of them, and John pulls out one of his best strife hammers. The teens follow suit, including Rose knitting light around her with the Quills of Echidna. She begins to warn the others about sticking to the plan, but is interrupted by Lord English attacking the group with a wave of energy. Rose is the only one struck by it, and she dissolves into light as she dies a Heroic death.

Earth C adult[edit | edit source]

While Dirk is performing live on his television show, shortly after hanging up on a call he had with Dave, Rose calls him as well. He absconds from the studio early to take Rose's call, and she explains her condition to him. Her Seer of Light powers are expanding rapidly, more than her mind can physically keep up with. She refers to this process as "ascension." Rose frequently shuts down Dirk's interruptions, citing her lack of energy to deal with his mannerisms today. Dirk, to Rose's surprise, says that he is "suffering from the same condition." He continues to field Rose's frustration with him as she asks why he didn't discuss it with her sooner, since he's been aware of her problem for a while. He says he's been working on a solution, and that Rose should go meet him at his studio later to discuss it more. He says he can't get in depth on the call because he's too busy with his current political aims, and hangs up on her.

Candy
Rose wakes up in the hospital following John Egbert's decision to eat the candy. Her wife, Kanaya Maryam, is at her bedside when she awakens. Her and Kanaya discuss the troubled nature of their relationship over the past few years, and reconcile. Kanaya resumes her work with the mother grub and life, to an extent, goes back to normal, the way it was before Rose was crippled by her migraines. Kanaya declares that they will be very happy now. Shortly after their discussion about their imminent marital bliss, a clone of Vriska hatches from an egg laid by the mother grub, as the slurry used to impregnate her is genetic material from the original 12 trolls. Kanaya and Rose decide to adopt the baby Vriska clone and their little family lives up to the premonition that they will live a placid and joyful life — though it is not uninterrupted by outside events. Rose and Kanaya join Karkat's troll resistance effort, and their daughter is eager to eventually join as well. Rose thanks John before the battle between Jane Crocker and Karkat Vantas' armies breaks out, for deciding not to go back into canon and fight Lord English. This gave her a chance to be happy, without concern for other timelines. They hug.


In Homestuck^2: Beyond Canon[edit | edit source]

From the reader's point of view, Rose's story in Homestuck^2: Beyond Canon picks up in the two timelines where The Homestuck Epilogues left off.'

Meat
Following her appearance in Candy, Postscript, Rose appears on the Theseus as Rosebot, discussing the ship's imminent landing with Dirk.HS2.svg Upon landing on Deltrius, she and Dirk partake in a session of philosophy before beginning their game, which is to make two alien species that will participate in Sburb. Meanwhile, Rose and Terezi discuss about Dirk's plan to restore canon, and Rose's feelings. However, Terezi stirs up a tense discussion between them both, seemingly ending in a kismesissitude affair. Dirk laters says they've been "spending time with each other."

Candy
Right after Rose finds out about the pictures of Vrissy dragging Gamzee's body along with Tavros, Harry and Vriska, she and Kanaya frantically try to contact her, when Jade interrupts and says Yiffy has been taken by Jane's forces. Rose and Jade proceed to explain Kanaya Yiffy's origins and upbringing, something that had been done in complete secrecy, without telling Kanaya. As Kanaya states later in the presence of the other grown-up kids, she believes that Is Not Something That Will Undermine Roses And [Kanaya's] Relationship. The day of Gamzee's funeral, Rose, Kanaya, Jade and Tavros storm the place aboard a rebel ship. Jade and Rose reunite with Yiffy, who was previously released by Jake. Kanaya threatens to harm Tavros if Jane attempts to take hold of Yiffy again.
