CASTING OPPORTUNITY: New reality TV show looking for eager new participants. No prior acting experience required -- casting based on first-come, first-serve basis. Pays hourly. Must be 8 sweeps or older. No drones or lusii, please.
You're not sure what possessed you to do it, but it's done. You've signed yourself up to take part in a reality show... in which you share a house with fifteen other complete psychos. ... Well, yeah, okay, so you know all of them, but seriously! What were you THINKING? Did you actually think this would end well? Do you watch reality TV at all?!
Fuck no, you can't just back out of it! You signed a contract. You're in this from now until the end of the season. Better get used to it. The producers are harder to bargain with than Satan himself.
Okay, so you're stuck here now. The best thing to do is just roll with it-- okay, seriously, if you keep trying to leave you're going to miss out on picking a room -- and accept that you're in this for the long run. May as well try to get settled in, right? There's a banquet going on to kick things off -- celebrate your last few hours off-air -- so why don't you hit that up?
What? Oh, yeah. Lied about the rooms. You get assigned your rooms... and possibly roommates. Go ahead and fight it out if you want, but there sure as hell isn't any guarantee you'll end up where -- or with who -- you want. It's all part of the show process. It's allllll about the ratings, my friend. You're expected to entertain the vapid masses while they follow your every move over their TV dinners. What better way to entertain than to kick things off with a little food before a knock-down, drag-out brawl over something as simple as room assignments? Grab a couple of folding chairs and solve this like adults!
Such is Crackstuck. We expect nothing less than the spastic, melodramatic camwhores we know you were born to be. And trust us: if you don't feel like starting drama, we'll make drama... even out in public. For the rest of the season, you get to play crackpuppet to our producers' whims. But hey... money, fame? That's what you were looking for, right?
Oh, and a word to the wise -- don't look at the cameras, please. It's unprofessional.
Welcome to Crackstuck, boys and girls.
We are here purely for the sake of taking the Homestuck canon and flagrantly twisting it six ways to Sunday. As the name suggests, crack rp is to become the basis of most -- if not all -- of the plots. While the characters are expected to adhere to their canonical personalities, having been aged up (humans to 19, trolls somewhere from 8 to 8 and a half sweeps) means that scenarios allow for a little more headcanon freedom. Think Feferi turns out to be an angry drunk rather than an "OMG YOU GUYS AR-E ALL SO MOT)(--ERGLUBBING AW--ESOM---E 38D" sort of drunk? Think Jade is a genuinely terrifying driver? You can let the crack flag fly here! (Just be sure to tag your NSFW threads, as the admins are like the mafia... we know how to hide the bodies, guys.)
While CS is being carried out in the context of a reality show, this is mostly a method of justifying the multiple group crackplots to be thrown your way -- TV gimmicks. The focus is placed more on the plots than the cameras (unless, you know, you WANT to play your character as being a camwhore -- in which case, more power to you).
Read the rules, remember to sacrifice a nakkodile to appease the
gods mods, and get your crack on!
