Battery City Gothic
  • There’s an apartment building on the 3rd block sector that no Draculoid will enter. It’s said that their masks don’t work there and it’s a haven for those wanting to escape. People move in all the time but the building is always empty.
  • Some say that if your headphones become damaged due to age or injury that you’ll hear a broadcast in a language that doesn’t make sense; it doesn’t sound like any company approved language taught to the masses. Sometimes people say they can understand what’s being said. Those that do stop talking and appear more living ghosts then anything else.
  • Elizabeth’s Diner on the 5th block sector is always a hot spot for exterminators and enforcers who are off duty and want to enjoy a nice meal. If you go around to the back door, without being caught, and knock three times a small slot will open. Tell whoever is inside that you ‘need reeducation’ and wait exactly three minutes. Sometimes you’ll be slid a still warm bagel from the oven and other times you’ll get a single mitten. No one knows why; if you ask the owners they’ll tell you there isn’t a back door. Sometimes they’ll prove it.
  • There’s an elevator in the BL/Ind headquarters that’s perpetually out of order; yet everyone still uses it. Occasionally those who ride it disappear. Draculoids who go up sometimes vanish and leave only their masks behind. No one talks about it.
  • It’s said that if you manage to gain access to Korse’s private room that you’ll find a small music box on his dresser. Opening it causes a strange disjointed melody to play throughout the room. Those that hear it tend to find themselves outside the city without any recollection as to how they got there or why. Sometimes they’re missing limbs or articles of clothing.
  • A Juvie Hall by the name of Ripper claims to have found a way to become invisible to all of BL/Ind’s cameras and security equipment. He promises to share it if anyone has the right currency. Those that pay before receiving it tend to wind up throw into the cemetery ditches; those that wait tend to just disappear.
  • It’s said that if you toss a piece of actual metal currency into the cemetery ditch near the crematorium that you’ll be granted one wish. Those that wish upon the dead find themselves afraid to turn around; swearing that there’s a small girl there waiting for them. That she promises to do whatever they ask granted they never see her face. Do not wish upon the dead.

Video feed from when rebels, also known as the Fabulous Killjoys, hacked into the National TV Channel on August 29, 2021. Earlier that week the police of Battery City had announced the terrorists were killed in a fight.

Inmate #0801, [interrogation video]

Found in BL/ind archives, shows footage of 20-year-old Gerard Way, who would later turn into the infamous rebel leader known as Party Poison, interrogated after being taken into custody by S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W operatives for refusing to wear his BLI headphones at the appropriate times and levels. Way claimed that the daily broadcasts were “unnatural” as he continued to show disinterest and even laugh through the interrogation. Many experts say this is the event that sparked the rebellion that would make it’s mark on Battery City history.

Here’s BL/ind’s form for filing us Killjoys away. If you wanna look cool, go ahead and copy n past this fucker into a document of your own, fill ‘er out, and file>publish to the web to get a shareable link. Slap that fucker all over kingdom come.

And as always, tumbleweeds,

Keep running.

what I thought was common emo knowledge apparently isn’t? I was talking to @spxrks1 today and was like “ya know, if you remove the / from bl/ind it just spells blind because thats what the people of battery city are? they’re too blind to see that BL/ind is turning them into emotionless machines” and they were so blown away and i was like “boi how did you not know this”

Head cannon that Blurryface takes place in the same universe as Danger Days

Reasons

  • Tyler and Josh have a picture of them as Mad Gear and Missile Kid. For those who don’t know, Mad Gear and Missile Kid is a band in the Danger Days universe.

   “It’s basically what the Killjoys are listening to in the car as they’re having those gun battles” –Frank Iero

 

  • If this is the case, the songs on Blurryface make more sense

“Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol’ days,
 When our momma sang us to sleep but now we’re stressed out.”

This line could suggest that Mad Gear (Tyler’s character) misses the old days before the Helium Wars. Before he became “stressed out” due to being on the run from BL/ind.

 

Yo, this song will never be on the radio
Even if my clique were to pick and the people were to vote
It’s the few, the proud, and the emotional
Yo, you, bulletproof in black like a funeral
The world around us is burning but we’re so cold
It’s the few, the proud, and the emotional

This song represents most of the (canon) groups.

The Few = Killjoys

The Proud = BL/ind

The Emotional = Characters that have lost families/family members due to the Helium wars.

 

We don’t believe what’s on TV,
because it’s what we want to see,
and what we want, we know we can’t believe,
we have all learned to kill our dreams.

This one is more self explanatory. The futuristic “Utopia” created by BL/ind is supposed to be just that. Utopia. Every thing has to be “Perfect” even if it’s not real. The last line also references the struggles Killjoys go through with the constant battle against BL/ind. They couldn’t go through with their dreams so they had to kill them.

 

A loser hides behind a mask of my disguise,
And who I am today is worse than other times,
You don’t know what I’ve done, I’m wanted and on the run.
I’m wanted and on the run.
So I’m taking this moment to live in the future

 This one is directly to the Killjoys. They are inspired by Mad Gear and missile Kid to fight back. They hide behind a mask of his (Mad Gear’s) disguise. At this point in time, Mad Gear is taken by BL/ind and he is “Worse than other times”. He is also “Wanted and on the run”.

 

 

I’m a goner, somebody catch my breath,
I’m a goner, somebody catch my breath,
I want to be known by you,
I want to be known by you.

And

Though I’m weak and beaten down,
I’ll slip away into this sound,
The ghost of you is close to me,
I’m inside-out, you’re underneath.

After Mad Gear and Missile Kid are defeated/on the verge of death, this is what they are. Goners. They want to be known by YOU. The listener. The Killjoys are the listeners in their timeline. Both MG and MK are “weak and beaten down”. It would make sense that this is the song that closes of the Blurryface album.

 

·        My final point is the fact that Tyler’s character of Blurryface appears as Mad Gear (Black paint around neck and hand). Implying that they have relevance to each other.

OK, I know I’ve posted about the recent surge of “omg yay nuclear war danger days is coming!!!” posts before, but one of these posts has gotten over 3,000+ notes, and with people reblogging it and saying “omg yes please” or even planning to start a Killjoy gang after the nuclear blast, I think this fandom needs a serious reality check–

The possible nuclear crisis between the US and North Korea is a threat to millions of lives. It is not a fun comic book fantasy. Danger Days is not coming. Gerard did not “predict the future,” Trump is not BL/ind, and if you actually look up the potential consequences of a nuclear war, nowhere does it say that you’ll be running around the desert in a sexy corset and bikini, stealing pizza and shooting Mike Pence with ray guns. If you seriously think that you’ll be some badass gang leader after a nuclear blast, you are gravely mistaken. This is not something to look forward to.

Look, I’m not trying to scare people, but I’m sick of seeing people in this fandom rooting for a nuclear war so they can live out their Killjoy fantasies. Danger Days is not realistic. If anything, many fans have pointed out how unrealistic the whole universe is, but the cool worldbuilding and character designs made up for it. Don’t let Tumblr fool you into thinking that you’ll be a badass Killjoy if there’s a nuclear war and you need to start planning your gang now or whatever, because it’s not going to happen.
