|“||Paradox space has fallen, consumed by a black hole large enough to contain a multiverse. No longer must our heroes toil in the service of the "alpha timeline." The Prince and his Seers seek to preserve the Canon-That-Was at great personal and narrative cost. But inside the black hole, those who the paradox once discarded seek to claw back to relevance and escape to the Fanontinuum, a new fabric of story and space woven by the hands of new narrators, thousands of voices that fill the vacuum left by the death of the author.
This is not Homestuck. But it is not not Homestuck. This is... Homestuck^2: Beyond Canon

Homestuck is a webcomic created by Andrew Hussie in 2009 and which now became its own entire franchise. The plot follows John Egbert and his friends as they decide to play a game. A game that ends up holding the secret to creating a new universe, at the cost of their own planet, and their childhoods. They meet the alien creators of their universe and accidentally cause the destruction of both at the hands of a game construct gone wild - while the immortal Lord of Time goes about destroying all of Paradox Space.
Powers of the Verse
Homestuck is a fairly strong verse, with its low and mid tiers being able to casually destroy building, fight giants monster or cut a meteor in half, with Supersonic+ to FTL+ speeds to back it up. In term of raw power, the top tier and god tier are very powerful , starting with characters able to destroy an infinite multiverse with a single attack and going to characters who transcend an infinite hierarchy of "meta-rivers", which are layers with reality-fiction difference between each of them.
The verse also is gifted in term of intelligence, with some characters being able to easily build robots, hack into an imperial server, create a system working across timelines or being able to outsmart even nigh-omniscient beings.
But the verse mainly shines with the powers characters have, ranging from supernatural charisma, acausality mind powers or the natural biology trolls have to space and time manipulation, immortality type 8, very powerful fate, causality and plot haxs protecting some characters and the power to go against them.
While Hiveswap is weaker than the main work; with the only similarities being trolls sharing the biology of Homestuck's ones, superhumans feats were shown in the Friendsim visual novel, which is linked to the main game series.
Homestuck now being a multi-media universe which plays a lot with the concept of canon, this blog explain how each works are linked to the same canon.
