More detailed content warnings for The Homestuck Epilogues

The Homestuck Epilogues (2019) are a work for mature readers, including sensitive subjects. They are a work of great empathy and surprisingly essential commentary on these tough subjects, while maintaining the sudden flippancy and tension-resolving absurd humor familiar to readers of Homestuck.

The content warnings presented as follows should not be taken as a reason not to read the work or negative commentary on the work, but are instead intended as a guide for minors and those with traumatic triggers. These individuals should discuss the content of The Homestuck Epilogues with a trusted adult before reading.

The entire work contains canon-typical language (including gendered slurs such as ‘bitch’ and ‘pussy’), violence, comic mischief, and joking innuendo.
