mountain mushrooms

Okay, HC time here.

So along with German, Spanish, French and Russian, Neil will pick up Japanese - he’ll do it because of Kevin muttering things at him and Andrew in it, because of playing games against the Ravens, because of Ichirou and the whole Moriyama thing. He doesn’t like the feeling of being in front of someone who holds so much power over him and not know what’s being said.

  • So it makes him popular with the Japanese Exy fans (that and other reasons)
    • Of course Ichirou takes advantage of this - any way to get more profit out of him and Kevin. Any potential source of revenue must be grabbed
  • Andrew is too often busy with his own team to go with them on the photo shoots (not that he’s heartbroken over this fact, missing out on the international flights)
  • Neil made the ‘mistake’ of bringing back various chocolate snacks for Andrew after one trip
    • The sugar fiend got hooked. The little chocolate burgers, the flavored kitkats, the chocolate filled panda things, the chocolate mochi, mushroom mountains - Neil had just grabbed anything ‘chocolate’

I have seen every single episode of AT but the thing is that I didn't watch them in the right order. This will sound totally dumb. Did the mushroom bomb or did a comet cause the creation of Ooo? Did the mushroom bomb cause the creation of the Lich or vice versa? Can you PLEASE post, in the simplest explanation you can, a linear timeline of how many comets and mushroom bombs have happened in AT (including a separate line for the alternate dimension/s)?

We infer from the Farmworld universe that the Lich was created by the detonation of the Mushroom bomb during the Mushroom War. Finn wished to Prismo that the Lich never existed and was transported to a timeline in which Simon Petrikov used his ice powers to freeze the bomb and stop it from ever going off. Farmworld Marceline tells us that if it weren’t for Simon:

Of course, Finn ultimately DOES detonate the bomb in that timeline, and we see Farmworld Jake become a Lich. Given all that, we accept that in the alpha timeline, the Mushroom bomb DID detonate, and it birthed the Lich. This assumes that Farmworld is THE closest timeline in which the Lich does not exist, and not simply A timeline in which the Lich does not exist.

Princess Bubblegum visited a crater in the S5 episode ‘James’ and was met by an army of goo zombies. This crater, in what Jake calls ‘The Desert of Wonders’, is relatively consistent with what we’d expect the size of the Mushroom bomb’s destruction to be.

In the S6 episode ‘Evergreen’, which takes place during the Cretaceous period on the alpha timeline, we see a special comet that people around here have taken to calling the Lich comet. This is for its color and its stated purpose being so similar to the Lich’s. That and its horns.

That comet hit Earth, 65.5 million years ago, presumably bringing about the dinosaurs’ extinction. Our standing theory is that scientists around the time of the Mushroom War [early 2000s-ish in the alpha timeline] took the ~essence of the Lich comet and used it as an ingredient in the Mushroom bomb.

There are other comets, too. Up to three different deities over the course of the past half a season have all referenced that something is coming.

Evergreen insists that the Lich comet is not the same as the sort of comet that hits Earth every 1000 years.

In ‘Astral Plane’, Tetra-G identifies the recurring comet as one that does leave a lasting impact on Earth - it brings an agent of change. 

Matthew doesn’t explicitly mention a comet, but when his episode dropped four episodes after ‘Evergreen’ and three episodes after ‘Astral Plane’, it felt a heck of a lot like building on S6 foreshadowing:

Of course, Lemongrab dissolved Matthew, so that protective force appears for the moment to be gone. 

Again, there’s no guarantee that Matthew’s referring to anything to do with the recurring/agent of change comet, whose nature is still unknown. Is the agent of change always different? Sometimes bad, sometimes good? Given that this season’s two-part finale is made up of [assumedly] ‘The Comet’ [though ‘The Comet’s’ episode slot is NOT yet confirmed] and definitely ‘Hot Diggity Doom’, we might hazard a guess that the coming comet and Matthew’s Second Age of Terror are related.

As S5’s ‘Simon and Marcy’ confirms, it’s been reaaaally close to 1000 years since a-short-while-after-the-Mushroom-War. Those similar numbers and S6′s foreshadowing suggest it’s probably definitely time for another agent of change, and the last one hit approximately the same time as the Mushroom War:

Given that there’s a massive crater in the side of the Earth whose scale is NOT consistent with either depiction of the Mushroom bomb’s detonation [Farmworld Marcy’s vision and the Farmworld detonation in ‘Jake the Dog’, both GIF’d above], we expect that the bomb detonated AND our planet was ravaged by SOME comet at SOME yet-unknown point in time.

Was it the agent of change comet that hit at around the time of the Mushroom War? Is it possible this crater was formed by the Lich comet millions of years ago and our real-life timeline breaks apart from Adventure Time’s timeline even more distantly than we think? Real-life human civilization is over 1000 years old, so if they share a timeline, what events in our history count as the every-thousand-years comet’s impact in Adventure Time?

A pic posted by the Bravest Warriors crew on Earth Day lends itself towards the two shows maybe being set in the same universe, and I haven’t personally watched BW yet.

If there’s some possible backstory clues in there, I dunno about em yet. 

So far as other comets that have popped up but haven’t had a tangible impact on the storyline that we can fully grasp and quantify are concerned, in S5′s ‘The Vault’ we were given a glimpse at (some of) Finn’s past lives, among which was a comet [an agent of change comet? Just a random one?]:

And, in S6′s ‘The Visitor’, Finn, carrying a baby version of himself, met a comet in a dream that we speculate was symbolic of life-giving:

Within the context of this episode, this dream accompanied Finn wandering in his sleep to Tetra-G’s comet from ‘Astral Plane’, which was not a recurring comet but rather Finn’s dad in an out-of-control spaceship. But since we’re sort of inclined to view ANY S6 comet as foreshadowing for the comet coming at the end of the season, however, its life-giving imagery might suggest something less sinister than ‘Hot Diggity Doom’ and Matthew’s Second Age of Terror.
