Jade tells Callie two stories she remembers while Callie illustrates them in a book.

The first story is about how Jade’s past differs from the one we saw. During the trip through the Yellow Yard, Typheus made LOWAS explode with John and Davesprite on it, leaving Jade dismayed and alone for the rest of the journey. Then she dreamed and met the Calliope who predominated.

John sends his past self away and then asks Terezi what he should do with the power to change canon. Terezi writes a list of instructions in her own blood on the scarf she used as a blindfold, gives John the scarf, and dies.

By following the instructions, John will fix Terezi’s mistakes and change the outcome of the new session. But this time, John’s retroactively preemptive continuity adjustment will not be a true retcon, because the text of Homestuck will still contain the version of events where he was absent.

Jane continues her account of the prison break. Jane tried to do the lifey thing to resurrect Roxy—and that is the last thing she remembers. She thinks she was struck down by the surprise leader of the attack, who was not expected to be alive or present in the session.

The seventh key thought sends John to the rooftop trial. The scarf instructs him to knock Vriska unconscious before Terezi kills her.

The password is FL1P.

After clocking Vriska, John greets Terezi and discovers there is one last instruction he can’t fulfill. He doesn’t have a wallet to give her.
