If you could do Act 6 your way, what would the Alpha Kids have been like?
It is immediately after Cascade ends. Rose, Dave, and the Trolls are on the meteor. John and Jade are on the golden spaceship. Rather than wasting our time with the new Alpha Kids and their pathetic romantic incompetence that I have absolutely no intention of keeping, I’d have it so that the session failed completely before it even began and is completely Empty.
In this Alpha universe, Earth was destroyed by the fact it’s a Void session before the player characters could exist. As a result, the entirety of this Medium has NOTHING. No Prospit, no Derse, no Skaia, nothing. So, Jade had to bring ALL OF THEM with her for their plan to function at all.
With all of this in place, I will make one key difference to Cascade. I will let AR survive, and go with WV onto the Troll Meteor. He’d be a reasonable and fair authority figure for the kids. Vriska is dead. AR would discourage Rose from drinking (because fuck that), keep everyone from making huge romantic mistakes, and WV would not spiral into being a pet cat cute mayor dkfbdkchakfbldhf
Instead, on the Meteor, WV and AR, as the only adults on the premises, keep things organized and assign everyone to an actually feasible and useful project: building a wormhole connection of some kind to Jade and John’s spaceship.
Jade and John meanwhile explore their planets until completion. This ultimately allows Jade to help in the creation of the wormhole and for John to re-establish an internet connection to Rose and Dave so they can continue to collaborate on wormhole shit. Through this, they wind up interacting with Jack Noir again.
Here is where the ultimate battle of ultimate destiny goes down. Over the three year travel time between universes, Jack Noir fights a war of attrition against Fucking Everyone. PM catches up to him a couple times. John beats the shit out of him for killing his dad. Rose fucks with his head. Dave stabs him. By the time Jade finally shows up she gets him to stop moving entirely and PM chops his ring arm off and he dies.
With Jack Noir dead, and everyone back in the New Alpha Session with All The Stuff, one last thing has to go down. Lord English shows up. But there’s a plan now.
The wormhole thing isn’t just to connect the Golden Spaceship and the Troll Meteor. It’s a fenestrated wall. A window.
I can’t use images because I’m on mobile at the moment, but it’s like the windows in Problem Sleuth. If you put two of them close enough together, they create an infinite loop that traps someone in there forever. These windows are Dersite technology in canon, so that means AR and WV could probably figure it out from Rose’s Grimoire that has instructions written in Dersite on how to build and use them. This is all canon information that I’m unable to illustrate at the moment so I’m sorry if it seems confusing.
With these new giant fenestrated walls, the four kids and their Troll friends squeeze Lord English in between them. There is no Calliope/Caliborn bullshit here. He’s just a horrorterror that we don’t know anything about and we don’t NEED to know anything about.
To get their plan to work, they have to all be the Ultimate God Tiers. So, the Beta Kids do their final task: work together as the gods of the new universe to trap Lord English away, and bring the new Genesis Frog to life.
They all play a song together after the Big Climax Where Lord English Fucks Off, and the song plus the lighting of the Forge plus Other Stuff allows them all to create the Ultimate Reward and create their new reality.
