DARK AND THE HOST
Hey guys, I’m hopping on the theory train at least two weeks late because that’s how I roll. Anyway, a lot of people here have a headcanon that Dark is manipulating The Host for his power and loyalty. While that does fit within Dark’s character, I have a different interpretation. I believe that the Host is equally powerful, or even more powerful than Dark is. Hell, as the Author he could CONTROL THE FUTURE TO HIS WHIMS. That’s some power right there. My personal headcanon is that when he lost his sight he lost the ability to control the future directly, but he gained the ability to predict and “see” future events perfectly. That is what makes him an important asset to Dark. Who wouldn’t want to have a right hand man that can legit tell the future? But, I also theorize that Dark isn’t manipulating him into it, because he knows the Host wouldn’t fall for it. Sure, he’s the master manipulator, but it’s pretty hard to manipulate someone who can see the future AND any secret intentions you might be hiding behind sweet talk and fake friendship. The Host is an extremely powerful entity who may have been set back by losing his sight but is still invaluable to Dark’s plans. I see them as less of a situation of forced servitude and more as a partnership and mutual respect, true respect, unlike what I think is happening between Dark and Wilford. Tell me what you all think!
Oh and I accidentally posted this onto my art blog and it won’t let me delete it.
WHY TUMBLR. WHY.
