It's a neutered version of Homestuck, which only has trolls (which have none of the things that make alternian trolls funny or stand out), so it's perfect for the scraps of the fandom that's left that's starving for content after Homestuck's over. Couple that with Xamag's art and you got a pretty good substitute to Homestuck for the current community. Granted, it's unsustainable. The author already started his own not!FriendSim and it's got a sizeable amount of volumes (and drama! But that's neither here or there)
already, not to mention that Vast Error has its own site by now (Deconreconstruction). But for all it's trying out, it's never going to be able to leave the shadow of Homestuck by its very nature, nor will it be able to withstand Tumblr's incredibly toxic community (as seen by the Wendigo naming incident), which makes it all the sadder, because, from what I hear, the author worked on this for 7 years now, and it had potential! But now... I don't know, maybe he'll pull through, maybe the community will eat the comic alive. Time will tell.
