Artist commentary:

Team Dogfight: (booklet commentary)

You Killed My Father (Prepare To Die) is, as you may have noticed, a collaborative effort from a bunch of fanmusicians, except I guess we're all Homestuck Official now. Homestuck's been a pretty big part of our lives, as you can see from these testimonials:

pixelseph: (bassist)

Homestuck had been one of the best experiences of my life, and being able to contribute music to it on several occasions fulfilled a few of my dreams.

It's been a massive pleasure to work with y'all.

Willow Ascenzo: (orchestra, choir)

The amount of musical fan activity that came out of Homestuck was really quite incredible, and something I've never seen in any fandom before. For all the highs and lows in the Homestuck fandom the way the fandom appreciated fanmusic was special.

David Dycus: (composer, synths)

Homestuck gave me a sense of musical purpose I have not experienced before or since.

...Actually, that sounds stupid. Don't print any of that.

Catboss: (drums, mixing)

Literally everyone I know is a Homestuck.

I am trapped in an unending hell.

Please kill me.

Mika B.: (track artist)

Being reeled in both by the song title and the clash between the two characters (and the music, of course), creating art for this was exciting.

I have always thought of John as one who keeps his dorky self kept close in all situations, so John facing off Bec with the most energy filled, accusing point served as my inspiration for this piece.
