okay so everyone is theorizing that dark is the reason why the host is well, the host. which makes a lot of sense and i love it but why are we not considering it might not have been dark? i mean after all, we know wilford isnt really the gentleman he pretends to be. (idk just a dumb thought i had)
More like an interesting idea! This probably isn’t what you had in mind but:
Wilford doesn’t really have an agenda, not like Dark does, but he tends to stumble on in on things, some interesting, some not, and in one case, a peculiar manipulator of reality lying in a pool of his own blood and cursing up a storm. And Wilford is a curious being with a penchant for chaos so he leans over him and asks “What’s got you so down?” because maybe something interesting might happen.
And the Author, still humiliated and in pain and so terribly frustrated snarls out “I’m dying dumbass.”
Wilford frowns because geez, he was just trying to be nice. He moves to leave, but there’s a hand grasping weakly at his leg and the Author’s eyes are blown wide with panic.
“Don’t leave me here, please”, he practically begs, his voice raw with fear because if Wilford leaves, what are the chances of someone else finding him?
And Wilford thinks sure, why not, he could use some help around the studio (they keep telling him it would help if he’d stop killing the interns every time they so much as mention death) so why not?
Also, apparently, there’s a way to restore the Author’s depleted power, something about his eyes.
Well no one ever said Wilford was very good at following instructions.
hey this might sound dumb but maybe you should tag all your headcanons with the host and dark as abuse tw or something like that cuz i've been emotionally abused as well and even tho these headcanons dont make me uncomfortable i can imagine that someone else might be triggered by it.
Oh shoot, I’ll tag them asap!! Thank you for telling me, it didn’t occur to me to tag them til now.
And ya, go ahead, I’m always here for more angst as long as yall are comfortable with it
whenever i hear “take on me” I feel the intense urge to turn dramatically to the camera even tho I’m literally jus chillin w my dog. There’s no camera to speak of. We’re going down the highway at 70 mph.
k so once again ur headcanons gave me inspiration so would it be okay if i make a list of headcanons about the host playing violin? (i would draw them but that would be like 20 drawings so shitty writing is what you'll have to settle for)
Sure thing! I’m always 100% down for headcanons about the Host and the violin
