Times are stressful as frak. I mean, we got the countdown to
Iris’ impending doom, the risk of losing Caitlin to her evil alter-ego Killer
Frost, and this weird dude with the touch of death running around making things
decay. Can we please have a week where
we are not tiptoeing on the brink of disaster?
You’re spiraling, Cisco. Take a deep breath and focus on the
positives. Every cloud has a silver
lining, right? I guess ours would be Wally making serious progress in his
speedster training. He mastered the whole phasing thing and is making Kid Flash
a bonafide sensation. Seriously, Kid Flash is more popular than memes here in
Central City! I figured it was high time for me and Wally to have a low-key
bromance and hit up the town. I mean, we’re both coming into our own as
superheroes, after all. It’s the Vibe / Kid Flash crossover event! Vibe and Kid
Flash’s Excellent Adventure? Vibe Cassidy and the Flashdance Kid? I’ll work on
it. Either way, it was on like Donkey Kong.
Since we’re both not-so-secretly pining for our other-Earth
baes, Jesse Quick and Gypsy, we took ourselves off the market and decided to
just have fun and not worry about the whole dating game. Wally didn’t strike me
as a karaoke type, so I knew the perfect spot for our epic night – Central
City’s brand new barcade! We got there and the joint was lit. From vintage video games to a sick DJ pumping
tunes, the entire place was one giant party.
Wally was all giddy when he overheard a group of girls crushing on Kid
Flash, so we totes photo-bombed their selfies. I tore up Skee Ball and Wally brought
the moves on Dance Dance Revolution - safe to say that the Vibe and Kid Flash
team up could be best described as a fire
That is until the temperature dropped about 50 degrees.
Suddenly everything turned frigid. We
could see our breath! Wally and I were both freaking. These days sudden chilly conditions always
makes me worry about my homegirl Caitlin. I had to check over my shoulder and
make sure she wasn’t lurking anywhere nearby! But we were in the clear – we overheard
the manager on the phone complaining that the AC unit had gone haywire. The
party was cooling off - people were shivering and sliding to the exit. So I ran over to the AC unit gave it a touch
and vibed to see what was wrong. Turns
out it needed a new part from a factory in Star City. I gave Wally the deets and
he was there and back in a (kid) flash. We helped the manager install it and
brought back the heat. The party was saved!
As the night ended, we used our last quarters on some
classics arcade games. I got hooked on
Donkey Kong and Wally was blown away by my mad skills of taking down that crazy
gorilla. If only Grodd’s attacks were as
easy to dodge as Donkey Kong’s barrels! I gotta say I’m still stoked he’s out of our
hair for good. Now, does any one have change for a dollar? Wally and I are
ready for our next barcade team-up!
(this is just my own opinion dont get angery or feel personally attacked)
idk why i just dislike reverse edgy AUs so much
i just feel an aversion to them like “ugh boy this again”
underfell is Bad and reverse falls is Bad (from a worldbuilding standpoint at least) because i just …it ruins the what makes the characters loveable and unique? and the evil guys they are made into in the AUs share all the same old cunning lawful/neutral evil tropes and it’s just so bland
they have no real depth theyre evil Jus Becaus.
like in the reverse falls au the pines family are now the gleefuls and work the tent of telepathy. even gideon gleeful himself in the actual show has more of a personality than rev dipper and mabel
remember scanty and kneesocks from paswg?? thats all i can think of. but in paswg it worked because it fit with the anime trope satire humor of the show
basically what im saying is evil alter-ego versions of characters people make in reverse or dark AUs are just really two dimensional and they’re just OCs at that point because they have drifted that far from the depth and charm of the normal characters.
what i look for in an AU is the same characters but put in different situations, but they retain who they are at heart and any derived characteristics are a result of events that happened within the AU that changed them as dynamic characters (not static)
stan falls into the portal instead of ford. That is interesting.
the series of GF but it takes place in the florida keys instead of oregon. that is lighthearted and has a lot of potential. au where dipper accepts ford’s apprenticeship and weirdmageddon doesnt happen. how would mabel change without her brother? how would dipper change without his sister? do stan and ford ever reconcile?
i feel like having such a strong opinion about this would make me a critical writer but i’m not really sure
“Seaaaaaaan!!!!” A distorted voice echoed throughout the apartment. “JAAAAAAACKABOY!!!!!”
“Whaaaaaat?” The Irish youtuber shouted back from his office through his open door.
His somewhat evil alter ego materialized at his door, his figure slumped forwards. “Seaaaaaaan!” Anti whined.
“I can hear you. Just taaaaaaalk!” Jack whined back.
Anti dragged his feet towards his human counterpart. “Dark is taking all the attentiooooooon!”
“So whaaaaaat?” Jack rolled his eyes. “And can we stop whining? I gotta finish preparing for PAX!”
Anti scoffed. “Just because Dark appeared in a tux all handsome and shit in that stupid Date with Markiplier video, everyone forgot about me!” The glitchy demon crossed his arms, all sassy. “He’s nothin’ but a goddamn copy cat!”
Jack didn’t give Anti an answer.
“Seaaaaan! Are you even listening to me?!” Anti shouted.
“Yes yes yes! I can hear you!” Jack sighed. “You’re worse than Signe when she’s being her tiny anger ball self.”
“I heard that!” came Signe’s voice from down the hallway.
The youtuber finished the last bit of the editing along with conversing with Robin, his editor, and turned his chair to look at Anti. “So what do you want to do?”
“I want people to direct their hype back onto me!” Anti threw his arms in the air.
“I did sneak peeks of you in some of the previous videos.” Jack said.
“That’s not enough…” Anti pouted. “Mark gave Dark a proper debut this time. And it’s an interaction ‘game’! How the hell do I beat that?!”
Jack shrugged. “I’m going to PAX like really soon and all the prepared videos are done. No way I’m sticking you in that collection, buddy. I’m tired.”
“Isn’t there someway for me to play around?!” Anti asked. His mind clicked. “How about I show up in front of the audience during your panel?”
“What?!” Jack exclaimed. “You’re not showing up and scare the shit out of everyone to ruin everything!”
“No, I don’t mean in my physical form! How about like an opening video for your panel?” Anti suggested.
“A what?” Jack shook his head. “Anti, I am really really tired. Let me rest up for the flight tomorrow, will ya?”
“Sleep is for the weak, you idiot! And I wanna join!” Anti used Jack’s own whining voice. “I wanna join! I wanna join! I wanna joinnnnn!”
“Sean! Make your demon shut up!!!” Signe shouted, obviously annoyed.
Anti frowned. “Why are you even with her?”
“To shut you up.” Jack simply answered. “Ever since she’s here, you rarely come here from your void.” He gave Anti a small smug smile.
“Because she’s a tiny anger ball!” Anti shouted.
“In your face!” Signe shouted.
Jack laughed and leaned back on his chair. He pondered for a moment. “Alright alright. I suppose the community would wanna see you again. I have to chat up with Robin for a bit.”
Anti pumped his fist in the air. “YES! Suck on that, Darkiplier!”
Across the ocean from Ireland to the USA in Mark’s home, Dark suddenly sneezed, scaring the crap out of a focused Mark.
“Gesundheit.” Mark said.
“Thanks.” Dark said. “Someone must have been talking shit behind my back.”
“I wonder who.” Mark asked.
Amy came in the room, throwing a bottle of hand sanitizer at Dark at full force.
“Oof!” Dark grunted, as the bottle landed smack dab onto his face.
“You are not spreading any germs in this house.” She pointed at Dark and left the room.
Dark’s eye twitched as he rubbed his poor injured face. “Why are you even with her?”
Mark laughed. “To get you to stop annoying me in this house.”
Dark rolled his eyes. “If you wanted me to go back to my dimension, you could have just said so.”
This is a theory about the timing/time gap of when Robyn’s picture of the editing stuff was posted, and this is a THEORY made in good fun.
With that out of the way, let’s dive in.
You have this evil alter ego that tried to kill you last Halloween. Now you go to a convention with a shit ton of fans, some friends, and your video editors (which likely double as friends).
You go to your panel (the date is March 11, 2017) and you ask them to play the intro you had set up, and-
BEHOLD!!! It’s that fuckin alter ego again… since your alter ego thrives on audience belief/support/whatever, what do you do?
First you play it cool and say it was good editing, this makes them think it wasn’t real, their belief gets muddied. But how will you get some of your the hardcore fans in your alter ego to believe you?
PROOF, FROM THE EDITOR!!! So you ask them to take a picture of the ‘edited’ video they ‘made’ and to also post said photo to social media. The photo is posted (March 14, 2017).
Video editing takes awhile, DAYS IF YOU’RE GOING TO BE THOROUGH.
If we wanna continue the Antisepticeye Arc this is what I feel like probably happened.
Explain your ideal first date vs your fantasy date!
Well my ideal first date would start with us at a restaurant. He’d forget his wallet but I’d pay for him. Then he’d take me to the theater to see a play. He’d ask me to chose and I’d go with a horror play. Some crazy shit would happen and his evil alter ego would try to keep me forever but them he’d show up and then they’d fight. The evil one would pull a gun but then I’d get it and I’d have to shoot one but I don’t know which is which. I’d shoot one and then other one would reassure me and take me to an ice cream parlor. I’d worry for a second that I had picked the wrong one but it turns out I picked the right one and everything is okay and he’d ask if I want to go out again sometime. Just something vanilla you know?
My fantasy date on the other hand would probably start off the same. We’d be at a nice restaurant and he’d forget his wallet but this time I wouldn’t pay so the chef would get mad and kidnap us. We’d be in the car but my date would try to hit him with a tire iron but we’d crash and end up in the desert. We’d walk a little and see a road but also a weird glowy artifact. He’d go see what the artifact was about but then aliens would abduct us! He’d get pulled into the darkness and probed and stuff and come back covered in…something. They’d send us back to earth and we’d try to take the road but suddenly these men in black would appear and put these weird masks on our faces to make us forget everything we saw. So yeah best fantasy date tbh
If you’re tired of the cliche “evil alters taking over” story that Hollywood and the general media always puts out (what with the movie “Split” coming out and everything), then I recommend you read: “The Hybrid Chronicles” by Kat Zhang.
This series takes on the concept that everyone is born with two souls: a dominant soul and a recessive soul. Then after a certain age, they begin to “settle” and the recessive soul is supposed to disappear. Well sometimes that doesn’t always happen, and then you end up with a “hybrid”. The government puts the views of hybrids in the public as “dangerous” and “mentally ill”, and that they should be institutionalized. The books follow the journey of two hybrid souls named Eva and Addie, as they meet other hybrids and fight to free those stuck in institutions and against the government.
The trilogy starts with “What’s Left of Me”, followed by “Once we Were”, and then “Echoes of us”. Each of them are guide intense and interesting to read. Found it hard to put it down ourselves.
some nt: nobody actually has “"evil”“ alters those are all fake uwu
me, someone with an ”“evil”“ alter: most systems don’t, but support those that do because they are mean for a reason!! DID is caused from trauma, and sometimes the alters behave mean to "protect” because they’re still stuck in trauma zone. and sometimes they’re just bad people, like any singlets could be! either way, they deserve respect. if you don’t want to be their friend, that’s fine! but they deserve respect!!
The myth that persecutors/avengers/angry protectors/etc are inherently “bad alters”/”evil alters” needs to stop. I used to believe this and I ended up being openly hostile to several alters (in my system and in others) who are children, trauma survivors who have not yet learned that the world is not as violent as they think it is, or that they can find comfort. If you’re able to safely do so, please try to teach these violent or self-destructive alters that they don’t need to be destructive anymore. It won’t heal them overnight, but please consider that they’ve likely been through the worst of whatever the system has experienced, and try to be patient and welcoming.
Well, while I was riding a trike back home, my song for Mephiles played (when you’re evil by voltaire) and after that my song for Fleetway played (devil’s train by labrats) and I thought “Hmm… Mephiles is the evil recolor of Shadow’s shadow, and Fleetway is supposed to be an evil alter-ego of super sonic, that’s technically Sonadow right there, but not sonadow at the same time”
Then this pairing was born meant for shits and giggles XD I told my two best friends who loves sonadow about it and they absolutely ADORED the idea! However, one wanted Seme Mephiles Uke Fleet, while the other one wanted Seme Fleet Uke Mephiles. And I decided that these two would have a battle every end of the month, and whoever is knocked unconscious first will be the uke of the month XD
They would have one hell of an abusively kinky relationship
Tbh I didn’t even know that this couple already existed and there are a scarce number of fanart for them
I’m still debating whether to call this couple Fleethiles or Mephleetway.
The king forbids spinning on spinning-wheels or spindles,
or the possession of one, throughout the kingdom, upon pain of death.
When the princess is fifteen or sixteen and her parents are away on
pleasure bent, she wanders through the palace rooms going up and down
and then chances upon an old woman who is spinning with her distaff in
the garret of a tower and had not heard of the king’s decree against
spinning wheels. The princess asks to try the unfamiliar task and the
inevitable happens: the curse is fulfilled. The old woman cries for help
and attempts are made to revive her, but to no avail. The king
attributes this to fate and has the princess carried to the finest room
in the palace and placed upon a bed of gold-and-silver-embroidered
fabric. The good fairy who altered the evil prophecy is summoned by a
dwarf wearing seven-league boots and returns in a chariot of fire drawn
by dragons. Having great powers of foresight, the good fairy sees that
the princess will be distressed to find herself alone and so puts
everyone in the castle to sleep. The king and queen kiss their daughter
goodbye and depart, proclaiming the entrance to be forbidden. The good
fairy’s magic also summons a forest of trees, brambles and thorns that
spring up around the castle, shielding it from the outside world and
preventing anyone from disturbing the princess..
is the name given to a look-alike or exact double of a living person. They have been regarded as a paranormal entity or a bad omen, commonly believed to bring death. Some refer to a
as an ‘evil twin’ or ‘alter ego’. Whatever they are, they’re extremely creepy, and more common then you’d first think.
Doppelgängers have been reported all over the world. Usually, a family member or a friend may see their loved one in one location, only to find they were actually somewhere else (sometimes even in a different country) at the time their double was seen. There have been many reports of Doppelgängers in places that have also been reported to be haunted or that have some level of paranormal activity. A common occurrence linked to
doppelgängers is the phenomenon of hearing a loved one’s voice, only to find them to not have been the ones that spoke.
There are many theories linking
doppelgängers to paranormal phenomena, such as demons mimicking us, but one theory that is particularly interesting is the theory linking
doppelgängers to dimensional shifts. The 18th Century poet,
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, documented an encounter with his own
doppelgänger whilst riding. He passed an exact double of himself wearing a grey suit with gold details riding in the opposite direction. Years later, he was riding down that exact road when he realized that he was wearing the exact same clothes as he had seen himself in before. This raises the question, are
doppelgängers our future selves? Are they glimpses of ourselves in alternate dimensions?
Unfortunately, we do not know for definite what these entities are, or even that they exist at all.
Heautoscopy is a symptom of several mental illnesses such as schizophrenia where the sufferer has hallucinations of themselves from a distance. This may be an explanation for the
phenomenon, but how does that explain the sightings of
doppelgängers by individuals with no history or symptoms of mental illness?
After researching this phenomenon I seem to have come away with more questions than answers. Truthfully, this unexplained event is just that - unexplained. One thing is for sure, however, when I look out of my bedroom window at night, I sure as hell don’t want to see a duplicate of myself smiling back at me.
