HOMESTUCK, SIMPLIFIED

Anonymous asked:

ok, can you explain the homestuck family tree and how the fuck do ecto biological twins work?

Sure thing!

When John enters the ectobiology lab, he is presented with a machine that allows him to take paradox slime, containing genetic code, from certain targets. These targets include his nanna, Jade’s grandpa, Rose’s mother, and Dave’s brother. The slime is collected in tubes, like so:



The machine uses these genetic imprints to produce baby versions of Nanna, Grandpa, Mom and Bro.



Then the machine combines Nanna and Grandpa’s genes and Mom and Bro’s genes, to produce two sets of related twins.



So basically: Nanna, Grandpa, Mom, and Bro are clones of themselves, having been “born” when the machine took their paradox slime and made baby versions to be sent back to Earth.
But Jade & John and Rose & Dave were produced from the combination of Nanna & Grandpa’s and Mom & Bro’s pseudoscientific gene slurry, respectively- they weren’t cloned from themselves. That’s why the Prospit kids are related to each other, and so are the Derse kids- they have the same slime-parents!
