Dear EVA fandom:
Shadowjack: …Did Dr. Katsuragi use Katsuragi family DNA for the sample in the Contact Experiment?
Scholar and a Brutalman: I’ve always been suspicious as to why a 14-year-old Misato was in Antarctica, why the craft she survived in looks so much like an entry plug, and why she survived at ground zero of Second Impact when it killed most life in the southern hemisphere.
Shadowjack: Yeah, I’ve always wondered about that myself; hadn’t conceived the Dr. Katsuragi connection until just this time, though. It’s the entry plug that bothered me, originally. Dr. Katsuragi getting custody of his daughter for a weekend adventure because he wants to show her his history-making new project? Sure; it’s not like that base was the ass-end of the world. Misato luckily getting thrown clear of the blast? Within dramatic plausibility; after the initial blast, the actual atmospheric conversion took time, and she just rode the currents away from it.
But that entry plug. Um. Yeah.
If it was her DNA, that explains her escaping the effects… and also explains why Zeruel came straight for her.
JohnBiles: One could likely write an interesting alternate ending of Evangelion where Kaworu approaches Misato, tells her the truth and ‘hi Mom’s her and then they bring down NERV together.
Scholar and a Brutalman: Wasn’t Adam meant to have created the embryonic Angels during Second Impact as well? Then all the Angels might have Misato DNA. Or if she was in an actual contact experiment with Adam, Misato personality. Which might explain why she’s so good at fighting them.
SOMEONE FIND ME FIC EXPLORING THESE IDEAS
I KNOW NOT WHERE TO LOOK
I think the reason elsen probably burn up like that because that happens when you put some sulfuric acid on sugar,first it starts to smoke, and then it turns into a large pillar of a black solid and smells like rotten eggs. It also gets so hot to the touch you can get burnt. But I don’t know. That seems a bit logical to me.
Wild Neopets Speculation Time
So I’m actually sick right now and it might be the medicine or the rabid fandom conspiracy theorist in me but rereading Faerie’s Ruin raised a few flags for me.
So this panel was in the last chapter before the Epilogue, and for some reason it made me think. Something about Fyora’s pose (a somewhat…I dunno, comforting? hand on Altador’s shoulder), what she’s saying, and who she’s saying it to makes me think “okay she HAS to be referencing the Darkest Faerie right there.
Both she and Altador personally knew (and in Altador’s case, befriended) someone EXTREMELY powerful who ended up corrupted and betrayed them, and I’d like to think the writers of the plot intended for the understanding and sympathy between the two rulers to show. If so, bravo, TNT, that’s actually really beautiful.
Lending some credibility to this theory is Altador’s mention in the Epilogue: the Darkest Faerie’s statue is missing, and he’s off to go find it/her. Seems an awful lot like a new plot sequel hook, which could make that up there some amazingly subtle foreshadowing.
Like I said, I’m sick and sleep deprived so I could just be absolutely insane. But if the next plot has the Darkest Faerie in it I will literally just sit on the floor and scream for a few days.
Welp, Neotag, what do you think?
Silent Hill: Pyramid Head Theories (spoiler alert)
I’m trying to think of ways to justify Pyramid head’s appearance in homecoming.
I would like to note that this is fan speculation. I’m not using any material apart from the games to discuss this, I feel that if any series is going to have a multi-game continuity things should be explained in game and not through exterior means. To be fair this inclusion of Pyramid Head was probably just a developer move to get the audience used to the American Dev team. The new games have some conflicts in continuity, some are Retroactive Continuities, others are harmless references that can easily be overlooked. Also keep in mind that SH:SM alternate time-lines are allowed.
“Pyramid head belongs to Silent Hill not James” this is an argument that I don’t like, but if I’m going to justify other arguments other points then I must see that I try and justify this one as well. The painting in the historical society is the big clue for this. However you can only enter the historical society in the otherworld —which as the encounter with Angela can tell you the otherworld is different for everyone. If we fore-go the Retroactive Continuity in SH4, then the Red Devil that Walter Sullivan was afraid of could be interpreted as Pyramid Head, but it only says Red Devil could be interpreted in many ways. Until the movie and Homecoming, Pyramid Head had only appeared in SH2 which if the developers wanted Him in more games why not put him in 3 and 4? If PH was the executioner of SH then why would two kill themselves as James resolved to come to terms with his wife’s death and his depression? Why doesn’t PH come after Angela or Eddy or why do they not seem to know of or encounter Him?
“James joins the Cult” The rebirth ending in SH2 could justify this, it requires 2 play troughs thus requiring the most effort to get. if this ending were the cannon ending then it could explain pyramid head’s existence in silent hill because James as a member of the cult made him part of the lore. seeing as how he would have been the only one to successfully complete a resurrection in the series thus far he would have instantly gained rank in the cult, he would retell his trials in the otherworld and the legacy of pyramid head would be ingrained in cult lore. The cult’s interpretation of pyramid head could explain why it looks different because it would no longer belong exclusively to James. no new games talk about James specifically to setup the cannon ending and what James does after he resurrects Mary is unknown.
“Homecoming belongs to the SH movie universe” If you have seen the movie and played the original Silent Hill game or read my previous blog post then you can see that they have completly different stories but both revolve around the town and cult. There are references in homecoming that point to past games and the movie, but the ones from the movie are much more heavy and direct:
- Pyramid head in Homecoming is exactly like the Movie and Not SH2 .
- The nurses are exact copy of the ones in the Movie.
- The siren that we hear in this game is different than the one in past games , in fact it is the siren of the Movie.
- The church area is the exact copy of the one in the Movie.
- Swarm represents the Roaches in the Movie.
- The members of the order wear mining equipment.
- Smog acts and moves just like the lying figure of the movie.
- Grand Hotel is nothing but a copy of the Hotel in the Movie.
- Lurker in Homecoming resemble the Janitor of the movie.
- The part where order members mug Alex resemble the part in the movie where Cybil get hit by them.
- The cars in Homecoming are exactly like the one in the movie.
- The part were Alex gain consciousness and says ” Fog …and…. smoke “ smoke would imply that its occurring in the movie universe.
- In Homecoming many of the paintings specially the ones in Town Hall and Church are also presented in the movie.
- Wheeler does talk about a certain female cop that disappeared while heading into the Town. Clearly this is Cybil — who can survive in the games, but definitely dies in the movie.
This is probably what’s going on since movies attract a lot of fans and the makers didn’t want new fans to feel lost. The arguments against this is the references to the games, the ones from Silent Hill 2 are inconclusive and just seem like references, however Travis’s appearance is most problematic because Silent Hill: Origins directly links this game to the game story line the logical leap I’m willing to make with these is that some the Origins events could happen in movie timeline as well. The movies utilize Pyramid Head as part of town.
Developers work very hard on their games and it’s a rough situation to continue a game series after it had been wrapped up and only one of the original team members is left, Konami is a big publisher with harsh deadlines. Silent Hill has been Overshadowed by Metal Gear Solid for a real long time in their line-up. I do think that more time could have been put into the story. I also think that this game a rough start and the new games are following a tough act. So support their efforts, but be vocal about things you want to see and things that could make their games better.
As a huge fan of the ATLA series, I’m just as pumped for Legend of Korra as anyone else. If there is one thing I am interested to see shown through this series, it will have to be an evil airbender.
You might be thinking, “What!? That’s dumb! How could an airbender be evil! They’re such nice nomads!” But think about it. Out of all of the powers to have, being able to control air is the most powerful. With the flick of a hand, you could pull the air out of someone’s lungs and suffocate them. It would take no time at all. With the right pressure manipulation, you could render any other attacks useless by stopping them with a wall of air, or worse, crushing people with the same air pressure. You don’t think about it, especially considering how goofy Aang is, but air can be a dangerous thing.
You see, I bet the reason the airbenders became nomads is because they recognized the great powered they had and decided to live for peace, using their powers for a simpler life. But those monks aren’t here anymore. It’s just been Aang leading the way, there isn’t the intense institution of monks anymore. It’s likely one black sheep realized what he or she could do and go off and do something crazy. And honestly, it’s something I’d like to see, not only as giving airbending a darker side, but giving the series overall something darker to deal with, much like Katara’s adventures in blood bending.
Posting on tumblr just to see what other people think about this theory/idea of mine.
Once Upon a Time: Wizard of Oz Speculation
The three major magic users have very specific flaws that have a specific correlation to the Wizard of Oz.
Gold/Rumpelstiltskin — Has specifically been called a coward and a beast throughout the series. — Cowardly Lion
Regina — Has an obsession with hearts, and considers herself unable to find love. The episodes with the Huntsman definitely depict the heart having a relationship with love. So, with he inability to have her true love she has metaphorically lost her heart. — Tin Man
The Mad Hatter— This character is might be a stretch. My best reasoning behind it that he has forgot how to make the hat that can traverse the realms. Memory loss being an affliction of the mind. Not only that with the label Mad is a synonym for having “lost ones mind.” — Scarecrow
So I can say that since this season gearing up for what seems like a big war between the three and Cora, a Wicked Witch. And there is probably going to need a Dieus ex Machina to get the three to work together and work through their problems.
Disney is releasing Oz the great and Powerful soon so they are probably going to want to capitalize in the boom in popularity.
Prolly brought up before
But the idea of Talon being Swain’s son just seems…pretty good from a story twist standpoint.
Thematically too, I mean even from the pun on a ‘talon’ being a bird’s claw (raven in this case).
Plus I always found the huge presence of Swain’s raven + the black rose thorns in the last panel of Talon’s comic being really…weird.
I mean yes, the Du Couteau storyline, that’s his connection with Swain’s group. I’m actually surprised he hasn’t crossed paths with Vayne since both are investigating a lot of things about Swain’s group, at least I don’t remember it.
Du Couteau having semi-adopted Talon (since Talon was pretty old living on the streets for a while), well that seems like an interesting storypoint. Was Talon a bargaining chip then? Du Couteau’s volatile involvement with Swain’s group, neither friend nor enemy, could have been complicated because partially of this?
Ah well, it’s just a nice fanfic idea IMO. It’s got potential still in the canon , depending if Riot ever comes back to writing lore on the existing champs again. If it turns out this way or that, I’m not going to be surprised if such a revelation happens, to say the least.
Edit: Also pretty convenient Talon’s background includes absolute zero about anything before being an adolescent (at least) on the streets with a blade. A completely blank childhood? That just opens so much possibilities.
Okay I admit he definitely isn’t the only champ with a skimpy background, but just saying he grew up as a child on the streets, or an orphanage, or something, they didn’t do that. Instead they start his story off with him already being a grown young man who kills and steals.
Some hopes for Thor 2 The Dark World (Spoilers i guess if you don’t keep up with Marvel)
I think this most recent episode was sort of lackluster, personally. Idk. More under the cut due to spoilers.
Speculation about Ben, mostly. This went from an overview of how much I didn’t like this episode to Ben centric which is weird since I’m not overly fond of him.
Also I put my anthropologist hat on about the skitters and a certain detail revealed in this episode. That’s really all this is.
And a fervent desire Falling Skies stops relying on a small portion of its cast for just about everything.
As with everything concerning me, warning for book-sized paragraphs below.
Reader beware, you’re in for a scare…
Another dark discovery
So I was playing a downloaded game based on the Disney adaption of the Black Cauldron (which actually is alot closer to the original books… well at least they reference more stuff from the books than what the movies had and they even have Gwstyl!)
And at one point where you get a sword, the game says it’s Dyrnwyn. Okay, according to the books, they get that from King Rhitta’s tomb, that’s no prob with me.
But then according to a deleted scene from the movie, it was supposed to be the sword of Gwydion (who is apparently a king, as opposed to a prince).
And like in the books, in the movie, the wielder is apparently dead since well, they get it from a tomb.
So let me get the straight. Judging by how accurate the movie was by switching character roles (like making Dallben out to be like Coll and the Horned King to take the place of Arwan) Disney wasn’t just thinking of cutting Gwydion from the movie.
THEY WERE PLANNING ON KILLING HIM OFF.
WHY DO THE MANLY ONES ALWAYS SUFFER?!
I just rewatched both of the RWBY trailer for like the gazillionth time. And I noticed that the moon has kind of a prominent role in both.
In the Red trailer it’s there in the very beginning and during the whole fight.
In the White trailer it seems to be her inspiration to keep fighting or somethig.
I don’t know. Just sending this out to the fandom.
Also Weiss totally reminds me of Jack Frost from Rise of the Guardians.
