On Earth C, ten years after his adventure began, John Egbert awakens from a traumatic anime dream. Rose Lalonde summons him to her home. She is gravely ill. Her awareness of her many alternate selves in other timelines is increasing beyond the capacity of her physical body: she is ascending toward her ultimate self, and it is terrible. Rose explains to John that canon is predicated on three core principles: truth, relevance, and essentiality. She states that unless John travels back into canon and defeats Lord English, an event which is known to happen, the fundamental truth of their existence on Earth C will be undermined.
Rose claims that this will lead to an effect she terms "dissipation", a retroactive discreditation of everything that has transpired since their victory seven years prior. She gives John a set of instructions for how to avert this effect, and sends him on his way.
He discusses his options with the two of them. They suggest that John has a choice in the matter: he could go to defeat Lord English and validate the canonical sequence of events concretely, or he could alternatively choose to remain on Earth C and forgo the final battle altogether.
But first, Calliope offers John an apparently different choice. What will he eat for lunch? Meat, or Candy? His thoughts turn to Lord English and the various horrible crimes committed by him.
John decides that he must leave Earth C, return to canon and kill LE, thereby completing the sequence of events necessary to prevent canonical dissipation. He says farewell to Roxy and Calliope, and makes his departure. He knocks her out and takes the ring, thereby diverting this timeline from the original sequence of events.
John leaves Gamzee in the fridge where he belongs. Now that this timeline has been splintered off from canon, its residents are available for other purposes. As such, John now recruits the remaining kids as year-olds for the final fight with LE. The eight of them return to Earth A a week before April 13th, , to formulate their battle plans. A whole bunch of shit happens that we already saw, but not in plasticine this time. John has an important revelation about his mental health in the meanwhile.
When they emerge, the second final battle is already in progress. The kids join the fight alongside the army of dream bubble ghosts, including Meenah and Tavros. Things quickly take a turn for the dire: Rose is consumed in a beam of energy; Jade is fatally impaled on a shard of the void; Tavros is disintegrated, and Meenah is seemingly thrown into the singularity. Dave is not so furtunate I mean fortunate, and is decapitated.
In retaliation, Davepeta impales LE on their claws and flies into the black hole with him in tow. The fight is won, but at a terrible cost. He loses consciousness.
He is soon compelled to awaken by an external influence he cannot identify. He finds Meenah, not yet double dead, clinging to a server beacon. She steals the Ring of Life from him and makes her escape through the server. He then encounters Terezi, who has been searching for Vriska for an indeterminate amount of time, and who is on the brink of starvation. Terezi gorges herself on a hearty meal of pipe tobacco and shaving cream. John cannot help but be smitten.
He assents, and she performs the impromptu surgery. In the heat of the moment, the two embrace passionately. John convinces Terezi to return to Earth C with him. His story is at an end. Jane Crocker has decided to run for the presidency of Earth, the first time one of the 12 players has attempted such a maneuver. There is a sinister pretext to her bid for power: this year is the first time that the new Mother Grub will be used to propagate the troll population on Earth C, as opposed to simple cloning.
Jane is running on a platform which many suspect would curtail the reproductive rights of the troll race on Earth C, and which Karkat and Dave believe to be some real xenophobic bullshit. He convinces Karkat to campaign in opposition to her. The two discuss the likely allegiances of their remaining friends, who together comprise the most powerful and influential people on the planet.
Kanaya, Rose and Jade will be likely allies to their cause. Roxy and Calliope are neutral parties, as is Jake. English, the most successful celebrity figure of them all, will be the deciding factor in the election, with both sides furiously courting his endorsement.
Once their plan is decided, Dave gets a call from his brother. The crowd is not amused. After soliloquizing ominously to Dave for a while, Dirk hangs up and resumes the show. Jake proceeds to perform the worst rap in the history of paradox space. Dirk then tranquilizes him and ends the episode in order to field a call from Rose, who is contacting him to discuss her condition.
Dirk reveals that he is already aware of this apparent secret, and moreover that he is suffering the same "sickness" despite not showing any of the same symptoms. He invites Rose to his studio to discuss the matter further. Some time later, Dave, Karkat and Jade discuss strategy. Things quickly take a turn for the uncomfortable however, as Jade manages to turn the conversation to the subject of their three-way relationship dynamic. Dave and Karkat vehemently deny any romantic feelings despite literally all evidence to the contrary.
Jade draws a shipping grid and leaves the two of them to think about it. They pretend not to think about it very very hard indeed. Jane attempts to woo Jake to her campaign unsuccessfully. Not to be deterred, she invites him to her office, where she tries to seduce him physically as well as politically.
He makes his excuses and leaves. Jane furiously rings her campaign manager, unaware that he is the reason for this unfortuitous development. Dirk offers to deal with Jake, before hanging up quickly as Rose arrives.
The two need to talk. Dirk, who has secretly already come into his own as an ascended self, openly claims control of the narrative of Homestuck. The Prince is awake, and our shit is wrecked. Roxy is unwilling to go against such a close friend, and Callie is uncomfortable with taking sides. This alternate self, experiencing her last moments after the battle with LE, approaches the supermassive black hole which was once the green sun. He panics, and quickly shifts our focus back to Earth.
Dave and Karkat visit Kanaya in the brooding caverns and discuss the election. Kanaya reveals that Jane has already visited the caverns in an attempt to curry favor with the troll kingdom. Dirk picks up instead. She is on the verge of ascension, her physical body barely able to contain her higher self. So far she has resisted the urge. But Dirk convinces her to fail to resist the urge.
From this point on, he holds her physical body together with his powers until such time as he is able to deposit her soul into a vessel of his own construction. Teen Jade falls into the black hole. The two fight for supremacy as the adult Jade wakes up on Earth C. Her newfound consciousness and the battle are both short lived however, as the dead cherub takes possession of her body and the narrative in one fell swoop.
The Prince is, for the moment, outmatched. Jane returns from the campaign trail, where she has been using trickster mode as a publicity strategy. Dirk warns her against overindulgence, and the two discuss the Jake stakes once again. Dirk says that he is working on a backup plan, now that his influence has been curtailed somewhat. Meanwhile, Dave and Karkat successfully convince Jake to endorse their campaign, and team Vantas organize a stadium event to announce this fact.
Things do not go according to plan. The dead cherub attempts to stop him through narrative fiat, but is outwitted. Without Jade to act as her beacon, she is forced to relinquish narrative control to the Prince.
Back in the stadium, Jake declares his love for Dirk Strider and switches his endorsement at the last minute. The Vantas campaign collapses, and Jane coasts into office unopposed. A month passes. Jade remains comatose in hospital during this time--Terezi, who recently returned to Earth with John, meets Roxy outside. After the two catch up and Roxy departs, Dirk reveals that he and Rose will be leaving Earth C momentarily, and invites Terezi to join them. Rose and Dirk prepare for their departure.
Once there, he requests the use of the fastest Skaianet starship available. Jake, who is now completely and openly infatuated with Dirk, and who believes that he will be coming along on this voyage, readily obliges.
Dirk gives him the bad news: English will be staying behind with Jane, ready to serve as the father to countless generations of her new presidential dictatorship. He kisses Jake one last time, saying that they will never meet again.
