    He's had a couple of months, and if you remember that the original ones are based on the DNA GCAT thing like he said, figuring it out seems like it wouldn't take too long. Still extremely clever to figure out though.

    He's only just reached that part, he's been reading Homestuck for about a week.

    Didn't take that long to work out that their chumhandles were DNA sequences (I thought they were pairs at first but "GT", "AC" etc. are pretty nonsensical). From this the use of "U" (Uracil) is pretty easy to pick up.

    I have a feeling that the sudden presence of U is significant somehow, although whether it is a direct reference to RNA transcription or just a little continuity nod I have yet to see...

    Edited:

    It's not a singular by the way, there's no such thing as "An" RNA (Just like there's no such thing as "a" DN) - It's either RNA/DNA or a Segment/strand/etc. of RNA/DNA

    so what's the deal with    Jane, Jake, Strider and Lalonde? It's (Probably deliberately) ambiguous as to which period of time they're in. Assuming they're from the same time period in the first place. Jane appears to be John's Nanna, but then, she has the book with Nanna's note to John in it. Likewise Strider seems to be Bro, but I'm not certain yet. Jake is apparently Jade's grandson, which is supported by him living in the ruins of where her house used to be. Lalonde would, on the other hand, appear to be Rose's Mother, again supported by the martinis and the fact that she mentions having a car (Jasper?)

    From this I can only conclude that they are all from different time periods - Jake is almost certainly in the future, Lalonde probably in the past. Where Strider is in time I cannot form a decent conclusion yet, but I would hazard that it is, too, the past, if only because he seems to be Bro. Jane is an interesting case - she has evidence both for and against being in the past. I would, however, guess that she is in the past, and is, indeed, Nanna, due to her Betty Crocker tendencies, and all the talk of a malicious grandmother or whatever, which Nanna talks about in one of the side-panels in the Scratch chapter. The fact that she has the book with the note to John in it is a little puzzling, but due to items in Homestuck having a tendency to flicker between times and places it doesn't necessarily disprove my theory. 
      

    Don't confirm anything I've just said, I'm sure I'll find out soon enough.

    Jane isn't the same person as nanna, and etc for the other new kids. they are scratch versions. alternate reality versions. different entities. they swapped player-ancestor spots with the original kids.

    Come to think about Jake and Jane, aren't they technically paradox brother and sister? Because that could make the romance awkward... I might be missing something, feel free to correct me on this.

    Yeah, I remembered the talk about the "Scratch" players swapping roles - I thought at first that this was referring to the Trolls as the ancestors, and John & co. as the players. So now, I suppose, the Guardians will be the players, while John & co. will be the Guardians?

    Weren't John's Nanna and Jade's Grandpa romantically involved in the pre-scratch world? Because it makes sense in that regard. But then it's never that simple, is it?

    Pretty much. Jade, John, Dave and Rose post-scratch would be the guardians. -snipped for possible spoiler I don't know if you're up to the present probably too late now if that's the case sorry-
