The Dark Truth About The Scooby Doo Universe

Yes this is a serious thought that I want to share.
I think I figured out something pretty cool about the scooby doo universe.

I have a theory for the end of MCGA

Basically, a big thing about Norse mythology is that it has an end, which is unusual for mythology. Even more unusual is the fact that at this end, just about everyone dies (Even the gods. Especially the gods). Just about everybody kills each other. That’s it! Pretty abysmal if you think about it.

But after all this, the last few surviving meet back up, everything settles down, and these one or two gods come back from the dead and then everybody left over goes on their way to this new cool land that rose from the sea and has self-growing crops and stuff and it’s pretty chill.

This is important to note for the theory. MCGA is pretty good about following norse mythos. And, since in the last book, Ragnarok essentially began, we can expect the next book to be the “big final battle” and this to be the main myth the book surrounds. (First book: Followed the myth of the Fenrir’s binding. Second book: Followed the myth of Thor’s hammer being stolen. Third book: Ragnarok.)

Now: In the next book, a big thing is the fact that Percy will appear towards the beginning. Knowing the whole “the earth sinks into the sea” part of Ragnarok, this makes sense. It’d be good to have Percy on stand-by when there’s a lot of water. Also important: on the English cover, Magnus is shown wearing a bright orange t-shirt. As i’m sure you all are PJO readers, you’ll know there’s a very strong association of bright orange t-shirts with a certain location.

So, this leads to the final bit of the theory:

Percy and Annabeth on stand-by + Magnus in orange t-shirt on cover + Survivors of Ragnarok traveling to a new haven =

Magnus and the other survivors of Ragnarok will live at Camp Half-blood post-final battle.

  • Piper: Is Annabeth always like this when she loses?
  • Thalia: Oh, yes. You should’ve been here for the Great Jenga Tantrum of 2008.
  • Annabeth: YOU BUMPED THE TABLE AND YOU KNOW IT!
  • Piper, during Capture the Flag: Are you upset you don’t get to be on the same team as Annabeth?
  • Percy: Have you ever played a game with Annabeth?
  • Piper: No.
  • Percy: Have you ever gone into a steel cage with a wolverine?
  • Annabeth, yelling at Leo: FASTER FASTER FASTER FASTER. DO YOU NOT KNOW THAT WORD? IT MEANS MORE FAST!!

When Zack, along with the viewer, is initiated into the mysteries of Murphy in the pilot episode, we’re lead to believe that we’re seeing a pretty typical trip to school for Milo. But “The Doctor Zone Files” reveals that Murphy’s Law may vary: as Milo himself puts it, “It’s unpredictable!” Like a lot of claims made about Murphy’s Law (obviously, not everything that could go wrong does), this one’s pretty broad; multiple episodes have shown that Milo’s friend Melissa has developed a faculty for predicting when Murphy’s Law will strike, which indicates that it has a logic of its own. And on most days, at least, it seems that Milo can ride the bus with his fellow students in relative safety–we see him do so in “Worked Day.”

So what made the first day of school different? Well:

A new kid came in from out of town. He didn’t know about Milo’s condition. He talked to him in a friendly way and even accepted his handshake. Which–look at how the kids at the stop react. 

They’re worried about this poor sap who’s here indicating a clear willingness to befriend Milo Murphy. They’re not only worried about him, they’re potentially worried about how it’s going to affect them (notice how Bradley is clutching his backpack). 

I propose that Murphy’s Law overacted because, quite simply, Milo was on the verge of making a new friend, and the worst thing that could happen to him would be for that friend to be scared off.

And, see, this is nothing new. This happens every time Milo is put in a situation wherein a friendship could potentially form. In “Rooting for the Enemy” we find out that a girl named Joni, who sat next to Milo recently, only just got her cast off and is unwilling to try a second time. In the same episode, Mort has a friendly conversation with Milo and is promptly thrown headfirst over a ledge and into a pond: 

By the way, Joni does end up in Milo’s blast radius again when she sits directly behind him on the bus in “Worked Day”.

She looks a little nervous to me. Can’t blame the girl. She’s even closer to him than Melissa is!

…but she’s probably fairly safe, because, while she’s close to him, she’s not sitting next to him. The real danger lies in talking to him or associating with him in the way a friend would.

Melissa and Zack are hanging out with him, but they’re probably all right too–at this point, they’ve both been established as friends of Milo. Both of them have firmly and repeatedly refused to be put off, so while they’re still getting swept up in Murphy’s Law and still risking life and limb by being in its vicinity, it’s no longer headhunting either of them specifically. 

Here’s what really sells this one for me:

We’ve seen that Melissa is normally unafraid to be close to Milo, though she’s not above establishing an “adequate buffer zone.” In the pilot, she initially walks gladly up to her friend, apparently prepared to stand next to him as she might on a normal morning…but then she hesitates.

We see her take a moment to test her surroundings before announcing her decision to put some distance between herself and Milo. Milo’s response is a thumbs-up and a cheerful “Good call!”

My guess is that this is a situation that both of them are familiar with through long experience. Milo standing here chatting with the new guy is a clear danger signal for Melissa, just as it is for the others at the stop. Milo, though equally aware that he’s in for a more-than-usually deadly morning, is undeterred. With his characteristic optimism, he’s embracing this possible friendship despite the risk it’s going to involve, but that doesn’t mean he expects Melissa to do it. 

Zack rides out the storm and stays with Milo; at some point before the series started, Melissa had to make a decision to do the same thing. They’re the exceptions. The vast majority of people who came close to befriending Milo were unable to take the heat. 

Rick Riordan and Polynesian Mythology

OMG I just saw Moana and all I could think about was WHAT IF RICK RIORDAN HAD A SERIES ABOUT POLYNESIAN GODS AND DEMIGODS AND IF THE KIDS STAYED ON A TROPICAL ISLAND TO PROTECT THEMSELVES FROM NON-DEMIGODS

I have a theory

So people always make a big deal about how in The Lightning Thief, it’s all “names have power,” and then later, it’s “Hera this, Gaea that, Athena this, Zeus that.”

But you’ll notice if you read TLT that Annabeth and Grover both sometimes slip up and call things by their real names.

For example:

“The Fur … I mean, your math teacher. That’s right. She’s still out there. You just made her very, very mad.”

This is followed by:

Annabeth glanced nervously at the ground, as if she expected it to open up and swallow her. “You shouldn’t call them by name, even here. We call them the Kindly Ones, if we have to speak of them at all.”

But you can tell that Annabeth was about to say “Fury.” Annabeth is used to calling them by their names.

And this is a girl who’s been at camp since she was seven. It wasn’t just a mistake because she didn’t know.

My conclusion is that once the whole thing with Zeus and Poseidon happened, everyone’s cautiousness went up like 120%. However, the normal thing is to call the gods and creatures by their real names.

LiS Before the Storm - Cast Predictions

So far we know that Chloe and Rachel will definitely be in the Prequel. We have also seen Frank and David, but who is else going to be in the new game?

As far as we know the game is set 3 years before the events in LiS, which means that Max lives in Seattle and won’t be in the game in person. However I firmly believe that she will get some kind of shout out. Maybe someone mentioning her name or we will see something that reminds us of her or is foreshadowing her story.

We already saw David and Chloe so Joyce won’t be far away and maybe we get to see some more memories of William then just the accident. Frank is (normally) never without Pompidou. However he wasn’t with him in the Mill so chances are that Frank hasn’t saved him from the illegal dog fighting ring yet (hurry up, man!).  Thanks to Chloe we know that Victoria is already known as the queen of b*tches in Arcadia Bay and where Victoria is, Courtney and Taylor are not far.

If you pause the game footage at 19:05 you can see a blond male person running into Chloe and with the letter in the Mill chances are high that this is Nathan. I really hope that he is there and that we may even get a glimpse of his sister Kristine.

In the trailer we see that Chloe is still attending Blackwell Academy. So we will have a dome sort of reunion with Principal Wells, Mrs. Grant and Samuel. Maybe we can also meet some other Blackwell staff like Samuels wife, Max’s (possible depressed) English teacher Mrs. Hoida or the school nurse An-Marie Barenchi. However as told in the SquareEnix live stream Jefferson won’t be back. Same goes for poor Kate. But beside some new student some old will return as well. So maybe we will see more of Dana, Juliet, Brooke, Daniel, Alyssa, Warren, Stella, Evan, Luke, Trevor, Zachary, Logan, Hayden and Sarah. At the beginning of the trailer we see a skateboard. Chances are that Chloe and Justin are friends in the game and that we get to go skating with him.

If we go downtown we will no doubt pay a visit to the Two Whales Diner and be able to talk to the Police Cops, the Truckers and other customers. Maybe even the Homeless Lady or the Fisher outside?

As of other minor character maybe we see another book by Dr. Bill, get to meet Nathans therapist Dr. Jacoby or watch the Weatherman again.

If you remember the red folders with the name of the dark room victims and took a look at the room plan in the dormitories in Max’s nightmare you were able to read one name on both plates: Kelly. She was one of Jefferson’s victims and also lived in the dormitories in room 217 when Rachel attended Blackwell. Maybe we will met her as her room is opposite of Rachel’s. Another interesting character is Megan. She was Chloe’s friend in the alternative timeline and her name can also be found on the folders. It would be cool if we would get to see more of her. The rest of the dark room victims could also be new students at Blackwell  (Alexis, Ashley, Beverly, Brittany, Carol-Ann, Deanna, Kelly, Lucy, Lula, Lynn, Suzie and Tyra).

In the Mill we already got to meet Skeevy Guy and his Blue Hat Friend and they don’t look like they would forget the spilled beer anytime soon. So we will probably see them again.

And don’t forget the Raven! I got a feeling that he will be the new Blue Bird
