okay so we’ve all established what happened to Papa II right? he was the first Pope to not leave because of demise, but rather being “kicked out”. even though I didn’t know about Ghost when Papa II was active, I know he was very tyrannical. I don’t want to say “evil”, but the aura that he carried about him, based on what I’ve seen, was very merciless. the clergy booted him before he was able to get too powerful, thus bringing in Papa III
Papa III as we all know, has been a class act. even a “class clown” I guess you could call him. like “I’m here to kick ass and chew bubblegum. and I’m all out of gum, but I also don’t want to actually fight anyone, so let’s party!”. the pervy old bastard won over the audience by storm very quickly. with his lame dad humor, nearly perfect hair, not to mention his suave demeanor and good looks.
I could just imagine Papa II, sitting in his humble abode clad in his bathrobe. with a piping hot mug of tea with a cat curled on his lap. seething with rage as he sees Papa III accept the Grammy on tv and continue to take his role as leader not so seriously.
Papa II is probably bitter as hell (hehe) due to being replace by a man who acts like a “child”. Papa III is the complete opposite of II in terms of personality, so it probably confuses and enrages him. why replace someone like him, just to set in a guy who’s going to act like a clown and fool around on stage? the church of Ghost is meant to take the world over! to mold, manipulate and ultimately rule over the masses! so why would they ever allow this cad to be?
I honestly feel like it’s going to be the return of Papa II. he’s going to force his way back in and bring the dark and intimidating aesthetic once again. Two by Four has already said that the next album will be darker. so I think it may be bringing back to Opus roots. who knows? maybe IV will be the son of Papa II, who he’s raised to be just like him? and sends his own son to take him out and carry the throne?
each new Papa has been younger than the last. at least in terms of looks. so maybe the next will be the progeny of one of the older ones? or…..it’ll be the father of II and III like it’s been so frequently said. and then my theories will all be for not. *shrug*
**also, I hate that I’m already speaking of III in past tense. it hurts so much lmao. like I have been in mourning since Sunday morning.
“No, Fire, slow down! Stop! You’re gonna fly away at this rate!”
one show later…
Papa: “Well everyone, if you happen to hear a face-melting solo wafting in from the breeze, if you look outside your room, yes, take a break from masturbating, heh heh, you might catch a glimpse… of a certain smartass who didn’t listen to my warnings.”
Later, on an airplane flight…
“If you look out the window to the right, you can see a Nameless Ghoul called Fire currently shredding the solo to Majesty, fifty feet off the right wing.”
A shoop I needed to do, after watching a livestream of the first ritual of the European Popestar tour 2017.
