Conspiracy time, since I haven’t really gone Markiplier Conspiracy Theorist in awhile:
To preface, yes, I admit that I was a bit unfair with my feelings towards Mark’s absence, and that was mostly due to my negative headspace I’ve been drifting in and out of lately. But, I think it’s a reasonable approach to be concerned about him maybe neglecting us, maybe not. However, my mind has changed on the subject:
My good friend @lum1natrix has been helping me out a bit and helped me think up some of this!
Mark has worked hard to keep up with us, yes? He worked on getting his schedule back and interacting with us more after breaking away last year. But. He’s doing it again… or is he?. Yes, he is absent unfortunately, but I do not think it’s due to those reasons. What I think it is is something likely skit related, or maybe some mindblowing bullshit that we cannot perceive due to Amy’s alien connections lol.
Notice Mark’s recent uploads. He’s been uploading more time saving videos, I would say. Stuff that is clearly older (see the collabs with Jack, Bob and Wade). Shorter videos like this mornings. Then no upload. He’s been an hour late for a few days. And then a few minutes off for others. This is making me think he needs time for stuff. Like perhaps an ego related thing, maybe.
Reasonably, he does have a life outside of Markiplier, but it seems like it rarely gets in the way of fan interaction, especially for this long. That’s why I personally think he is likely doing something via a big skit maybe.
Right now it seems, based on his more frequent posting on twitter, that they might be in a finalizing stage of things, perhaps. For the absense to have been as long as it’s been with barely anything AND lateness, it’s weird. especially with no updates/explaination of things. He seemed like he wanted to keep us in the know about things not too personal. Especially with the deeper videos and such. Considering if memory serves me right, it wasn’t exactly this barren with the last few skits?
Today even, it’s weird. Just .-.!!
tl;dr: maybe it’s skit related, maybe not
I can only hope that he’s doing okay and that he comes back soon lol
