no one seems to realize the implications of this.
first of all, as I have stated numerous times, the angels of Eridan’s land weren’t the kind of angels you might imagine. let’s not forget that light and dark imagery are flipped in troll society. they were wrathful demons.
Eridan may have attacked one of them by mistake, thinking he was supposed to, and that’s all it would have taken to set them off, making them attack him for the rest of the game. and their attacks weren’t just physical. they were psychological.
they prophesied Lord English. Eridan mistook it for Jack Noir, since he didn’t know any better, but it’s clear who the “lord of all angels” is.
it’s no wonder that Eridan lost hope. they broke him.
“What would you say if I said a vengeful boy on a path of nihilism was taken under the wings of fearsome angels, and learned to destroy hope with their light?”
— The Green Sun’s Destruction —
I am my master’s weapon. His soldier in a war of one bullet fired. But when that bullet clears the barrel, it won’t be my finger on the trigger. I’m a facilitator, not an assassin.
The image above is the track art for a song on the Alterniabound album called “Killed by 8r8k Spider!!!!!!!!”. Unlike most of the other art on that album, it appears that Andrew may have quietly commissioned the specific image from Lexxy. Interesting, no?
Among other things, this sparked a bunch of theories way back when that Vriska would steal the light of the Green Sun, destroying it, perhaps to come back to life. But that theory never made any sense! There are a million dead Thieves of Light from sessions throughout Paradox Space, of all races and creeds, and that’s not counting the doomed copies of Vriska! If Vriska’s god-tier Thief of Light powers could have made a single dent in the Sun, then any old ghost could have done the same damage. (AhPoorDogsbody even suggested the doomed Beta!Vriska that fought Jack could do it!) There was no logical reason any iteration of Vriska would be that special, much less that powerful.
Because now, we know that hidden within the cherubs’ lollipop juju exists AURYN, the all powerful wishing-amulet from the Neverending Story: An item absolutely unique in Paradox Space, able to supercharge one’s role abilities and serving as the ultimate cheat code!
In my previous posts, I covered in one how Doc Scratch intentionally engineered Vriska’s death so she would lead Lord English straight to the Alpha session, and in another how as the ultimate cheat code, AURYN happens to be the Ultimate Weapon which Vriska is seeking, and she can likely use its power to come back to life.
And now we know what comes next.
Just as Doc Scratch exploited Spades Slick’s nature to have him kill Snowman, destroying the trolls’ universe… Doc Scratch has arranged things so that Vriska will use AURYN’s power to steal the Green Sun’s Light, causing it to collapse into a Black Hole that tears an enormous BREACH in Paradox Space, spelling reality’s eventual destruction!
There’s so much evidence for this under the cut that I don’t even know what to say anymore. It’s been planned from as far back as Vriska’s introduction.
wearing shades keeps you safe from horrorterror/grimdark influence
on rose’s suggestion, dave takes his shades off on derse. he can then hear and see the horrorterrors.
this suggests that there might be other influences that can be neutralized by wearing shades.
and there is one character in particular that has, time and time again, shown his proficiency in entrancing others.
this powerful, cursed juju was guarded by bro, who made sure dave wore shades at all times, even as a baby.
it’s something we even see in dirk, who wears layer upon layer of shades. the dude will literally not go without shades ever.
DOES THIS MAN THINK OF EVERYTHING?
— ENDGAME - Knight to D6 —
The following theory is tentative. I’m not at all sure things will play out this way. However, it describes Dave Strider’s potential role in rescuing reality, how Dave might die in the process, and the birth of Paradox Space itself.
“They wait for he who would drop it like it’s hot whilst the pimp’s in the crib.”
While the image is amazing, it’s also somewhat misleading. Read under the cut for the whole story!
— Cheat Mode Enabled —
The jujus given to Jane by Calliope and Caliborn are powerful, and some people have been throwing around the idea that this Trickster Mode - sourced from a very early easter egg in Homestuck’s flashes - could be part of the ‘glitch’ involved in the “glitches and exploits in spacetime” that may lead to Lord English’s defeat. But there’s much more to it than that.
You see, in the animations of the lollipops being alchemized and combined, you can find that the true artifact is within the sucker: AURYN, the amulet from the Neverending Story capable of granting any wish! It fits in with the candy associations of the tricksters, as the heroes in Problem Sleuth conjured candy weapons and armor with their imaginations to defeat monsters and the final boss. This juju isn’t just powerful, or a glitch. It’s CHEATING. A cheat code that gives you a silly appearance and turns all the grist you collect to Zillium, but lets you break an unimaginable number of rules.
And what ultimate cheater is on a crash course to obtaining this juju, causing unfathomable destruction, and even using it to come back to life?
Under the cut I’ll explain the reasoning, as well as how the juju might work, what it might be able to do, and why Lord English might be arranging to get his hands on it. As well as the risks… this artifact is rather dangerous, even to its user, isn’t it?
After all, every sugar high has a crash!
