Psyche-Out

zenosanalytic said: This is a great story that needs to be told :|

I’m going to be without my files for two weeks and I’ve gone through two rounds of interning + one round of political volunteer hell since first scribbling this down in a notebook somewhere, so it just might.

Ahh, this takes me back to when Karkat got forked and everyone started panicking and suggesting that maybe Blood players can use their own blood as a quest bed, even though Jane had made it clear she was going to rez him immediately and the panic was mostly unnecessary, if entertaining and born from the fear that this narrative doublecrosses us and psyches us out constantly.

Scratch told Rose there were two ways of gaining God Tier.

You have exactly a fifty percent chance of ascending to the god tier.
TT: That’s a strange answer.
I know.
TT: Why such a precise probability?
Because, much like the decisions you must face to complete your dual suicide missions, you have two ways of achieving godhood to choose from.
TT: Two ways?
TT: By dying on the Quest Bed on my planet, and some other way?
Yes.
TT: Is there another Quest Bed somewhere?
Yes. Good guess, Seer.

He certainly allows her to interpret the ‘two ways’ as the planet Quest Bed and moon Quest Crypt. And Scratch doesn’t lie, unless he is playing a ‘prank’ by withholding the truth until a later time, and it’s a bit late for him to get a laugh in. I guess Hussie could merely retcon this - the regular kind of retconning, not Johnretconning - or suggest that Scratch meant something else. Or even that Scratch has faulty information and this is a new way born from the peculiar characteristics of the combo session. I am certainly getting the vibe that he has departed from his original plans a bit lately, so I guess it can’t be completely written off. They would certainly have to earn it, though, as you suggest. That has always been the real core of God Tiering. The fancy rock slab is just for tidiness.

that was fulfillingly raw and awkward and it was a serious relief to see them actually finally say things genuinely (which, to be fair, Dave has been doing for a while now, but not in terms of addressing the screwed-up pregame stuff).  the hug made me, like…happysad.
