Kate has stepped down as the director of Homestuck^2

This is NOT in any way and any form about expressing griefs about any certain persons or peoples. There is to be no good riddances and such so, not even those of overtly clever nature or subtle execution. This is talking about what it means going forward.

Basically Kate was the head director of homestuck^2 and was likely one of the more major writers too and now she is gone. AT this point it means that the team is down three writers.
I don't think this implies some kind internal turmoil though. Xamag works on vast error for example and is still an artist for homestuck^2, but being down 3 writers means more pressure on the remaining three, though they seem to have plenty of artists. Hussie could pic up some slack but he wants to be more hands off.

Hopefully they have people to bring in to help with the writing department. I don't think its falling apart but it does bring the fear that things could go wrong.

also no 'good lets hope it falls apart' either.

We have this and on the aysha's discord she said she left the team. She also, apparently, deleted her twitter account sometimes inbetween.

She sounds pretty bitter here so who knows? It seemed like when Xamag and OD went off it was in relatively amicable. Honorable mentions and Xamag is still drawing for it, so if it was something nasty i doubt he would be drawing.

Supposedly the homestuck discord was speculating that it had to do with incensing and contracts and she left because of that. Could be internal stuff between Kate and the others but that risks speculating and drawing out the grief stuff from there. Its just known she is no longer the head director.

I know if this thread goes on for much longer it will turn into a pro-kate anti-kate gossip club so I'm going to go ahead and lock it now but leave the first three posts up because it IS homestuck related news.
I'm more easily reached at classpectanon#4228 on Discord. I will respond to reports faster there because PHPBB's notification system is borked and doesn't email me when you report things.
