I promised I’d give you all another Dark fic when we reached our next milestone, and I always keep my promises.
Just a quick warning- this is not fluff. It’s not romance. It’s not a sympathetic portrayal. This man is a manipulator, a good one, and he does what he does to further his own interests. He enjoys control, not company. And, to use Mark’s own words:
He is not here to help you. He is here to use you.
So, Jack(?) requested that the audience start recording, and then a lot of Jack’s videos started flashing on the screen, a lot of them associated with Anti in one way or another. But more important is how the footage got that weird anaglyph effect Dark uses
Then, Anti asks if we missed him. Might just be mocking Darkiplier’s return, or a genuine question.
Then, Anti points at you with a large kitchen knife. Not at the camera, at you. His throat is slit again.
“Look at you all! Just sitting there!”
As he says this, his head twitches in two directions. Seems like Anti has evolved since the last time we saw him.
“You all thought i was gone. Not worrying about…anything”
Obviously, after Halloween and Jack announcing it was a one-time thing, Anti hype died down
*Anti traces a knife along his throat.*
“You all thought i was gone. But i’ve been here this entire time! Keeping eye on things.”
Possible explanation for the glitches in Detention gameplays. Maybe it wasn’t Jack in the glitches, but Anti. And the reason he didn’t seem so psychotic was because he was just checking up on you. When people started theorizing Jack was trapped in the glitches, Anti threw a quick crazy grin (it was 3rd Detention video, i think) so people wouldn’t give so much attention to the “Jack’s in the glitches” theory.
“You stopped paying attention!”
Attention is Anti’s source of strength. Maybe those glitches in Detention were not just Anti checking up on you, but also him keeping the fire alive. After the Antipocalypse, the tag was taken over by antiseptiplier shippers. Anti doesn’t like it, and you will find out why soon. Camera glitches, the community theorizes, making the camera glitch some more, which in turn makes the community theorize even more, until Anti is summoned into reality, and it’s too late to stop it.
“Well, i hope you’re happy”
You wanted it, now you got it. But at what cost? Death of a great youtuber and even a greater person (As jack demonstrated after Anti disappeared, breaking rules to hug a fan)
“You found someone new…threw me aside! Someone to replace me!”
He’s talking about Darkiplier returning on the Valentine’s day. Anti is displeased. Anti’s choice of words seems like he’s firing shots at Dark’s return when Dark says just the same… “I’ve been pushed aside. Replaced. MOCKED.”
“I’m not going anywhere! I’m always here.
This seems to be Anti addressing the “Eye” in his name. As he does that, he holds th knife dangerously close to his right eye, the eye that got injured and infected when Jack was a child, leading up to the name “Jacksepticeye”. Also, “Help me!” is heard a this point, much clearer, and it sounds like sobbing.
