There's a theory rolling around that since Hussie has broken off Communication from Caliborn, Scratch might fill in as his new "Exile". I'm holding out hope for it to be canon.
In terms of acting, I would absolutely *love* to reprise my role as Doc Scratch once more in Let’s Read Homestuck. I basically get to be hammily smug for hours at a time.
On the other hand, I’d want it to be nothing more than a cameo to let us know how they became acquainted. At the end of Act 5, Doc Scratch essentially wins. He destroys the two universes to bring about the creation of the Green Sun and paves the way for his master’s entrance. Chances are good that by the end of Homestuck he’ll be the only villain who was never beaten. Bringing him back for the finale outside of a flashback with Caliborn would bring the possibility of undoing his track record and I’d *hate* that.
There’s a reason that “Suckers” is one of my favorite lines
I never thought I'd ever say this but.. but I'LL MISS YOU DOC SCRATCH! ;A;
No lie, after writing that post for the reblog of the episode I legit cried a little. Doc Scratch was a lot of fun to voice in the episodes, and I put a lot of work into making sure I gave CoLabHQ my best with every file. Even that 25 minute long Ancestor Exposition Break *phew*. Granted I still have work to do. Dad Crocker, I’m hoping to do sound effects for GCat, and if Lord English has any more dialogue me and my two cohorts will have to deal with that. But like I said, I’m gonna miss the smarmy little bugger.
How exactly did you, Joely, and Alex create that spectacular Lord English voice?
Made a post answering your question and tagged you in it!
I got an ask about this, and honestly I seriously want to give credit to both Joely and Alex for their amazing work in helping me bring Lord English to life, so a bit of behind the scenes chat on how I created the Lord English voice for Let’s Read Homestuck!
Music used is “Skaian Summoning” from Alternia by Toby “Radiation” Fox
Now forewarning, this is all sort of technical and boring, so I will try to make it entertaining, but no promises. Also I’m putting it under a readmore because it contains some spoilers for Act 6
Today my dear viewers, as we reach the end of our time together, I find that it is prudent to finally reveal to you how my machinations have made the lives of all involved parties a complete living hell. It’s just what a good host does.

Bit of a bittersweet episode for me. On one hand, we’re one episode away from finishing up Act 5, and this episode contains some amazing work by myself, Paul, Biggs and of course Alex and Joely joining me in creating the AMAZING Lord English voice. Props to them for matching my hamtacular delivery.
Same time, this is pretty much my final episode as Doc Scratch. I have one more line in Cascade, but that’s pretty much it. It was fun to take the spotlight for a while, but it’s time to let the curtain close on this smug bastard.
Forgive the mess and continued fragmentation of the story, but a perfect host and gentleman cannot give his guests his full attention until he has dealt with a rather unruly lodger. Do please continue to enjoy suicide missions, wacky shenanigans and an unusually large amount of dead people.
