So, Act 6 has just surpassed Act 5 in terms of page count.
Act 5 began on page 3889, and ended on page 6010, a grand total of 2121 pages.
Act 6 began on page 6013, and is currently at page 8136, a total of 2123 pages.
It also recently surpassed Act 5 in terms of longevity, with Act 5 lasting 500 days, and Act 6 being 519 as of today.
Act 6 still has at least one more sub-act to go, plus any extra intermissions or act act acts he decides to add.
A long time ago, Hussie estimated Act 6 being much shorter than Act 5, and serving as the last “normal” act.
With Act 7 looming over the horizon, what are the odds of Hussie’s initial plan of it being an essential epilogue and being almost all flash coming to fruition? Probably not that good. He also recently estimated finishing Homestuck within this year, but given how bad he is at deadlines, this may very well end up bleeding into 2014. Who knows.
Anyway, happy 4/13 everyone.
Edit: So given the latest newspost (4/14), it looks like Hussie actually is pushing for A6A6 to mostly conclude the story.
