me: god is he finally done now. is this everything. it has to be
So, I was watching Star Vs. The Forces Evil episode Into The Wand and something caught my attention. Lil’ Chauncey, Moon’s war pig-goat pet thing, was in Star’s memories. She remembers him.
She knows Chauncey died in battle but no specifics on which battle or when. Then we get to The Grandma Room and we see Moon’s tapestry and her poem which I sum it up as: Toffee dun goofed. Toffee is clearly terrified and there have been lots of theories as to why this happened. Most of which tend to be shippy or something else.
But look at Moon’s face. Look at that rage, that pure open hatred. What did he do? What could warrant such open hostility from someone we’ve seen as being so cool and reserved? Then is hit me: Star was alive when this event went down. Because Chauncey died in battle, shown here in this tapestry and Moon is clearly an adult and Star remembers Chauncey. Then I remembered how the royal guards used to babysit Star. Why?
Where were the nannies? The caretakers? The royal nurses? They taught her how to fight, how to use a sword and weapons, how to kill an enemy with her bare hands before she ever hit puberty. Why would Queen Butterfly, Mrs. Prim and Proper, allow her only daughter to be cared for and basically raised by guards?
Because she felt it was necessary to better protect her young daughter. I’m willing to bet this is Moon unleashing some serious mama bear rage against someone who threatened her very young child. Star was old enough to remember Lil’Chauncey, but perhaps not the attempt on her life or whatever it was Toffee was planning on doing to the royal family. Maybe it was a betrayal on his part since there are so many hints and theories revolving around the two.
(Just as a side note, I am very aware of the Moon/Toffee ship and while I do think it is kind of out there, I also kind of like it too. Unless it ends up being like the Luke/Leia thing like one new major theory proposes. In which case, NOPE.)
I also thought it was strange that Moon and River decided to send their daughter to Earth to better control her powers….without any other supervision except for Glossyrick who they and we all know probably isn’t the best person to be keeping a rein in on Star. It probably had something to do with keeping her from setting the whole kingdom ablaze in glitter and flaming rainbows, but I also feel there was something else to it. While there are no mentions of Toffee after Storm The Castle, Moon is clearly afraid.
I don’t know if we’re doing the right thing River.
Also, for all of Moon’s faults, she loves her daughter more than anything. Star’s safety is paramount to Moon and even the cleaving of her family’s ancestral wand is no where near as important to her as Star’s safety.
Oh, I’m always mad. But I’m happy that your safe.
I love this theory because it explains so much: why Moon acts distant but at the same time is a constant presence in her daughter’s life. Moon maybe trying to do what she can to protect her only child while also living up to the very high and difficult position of being a Queen of an entire…planet? Like, she’s trying her best to be a good parent and Queen even if she doesn’t go about it in a way that Star can respond to.
Also, don’t tell me we aren’t going to learn something new on Monday about Moon. Look at this image I found for Page Turner’s preview. She just looks so tired and so sad. This is a woman whose seen some shit, done some things she’s regretted and probably has a lot of dangerous enemies.
All to protect her only child. At least, that’s my theory until canon will most likely disprove it.
so…I am both awed by and grateful for all the likes and re-blogs this post has
gotten so BIG THANKS TO EVERYONE! XD
after watching the last few episodes of the season I feel like this sort of at
least helps support my theory. There is no proof – yet – I hope – but give what we’ve seen it makes me happy. Moon
clearly is worried about Star. She wants her training to progress farther and
quicker, there is urgency in her voice and it’s clear that she’s scared. Also,
all the magic in the universe is disappearing? Makes me wonder just WHAT that
wand even is, or at least what makes it so special if Ludo having half of it
means it has negative effects on a universal
Also? Toffee’s picture comes up on the
screen with the corn and everything? Like, Moon, pay the frick attention!
Another thing is
that while Glossyrick claims to be doing his job to train Star to be a good
Queen I still don’t feel…like he’s a good teacher. He plays the vague-advice
thing way too much but then he kind of just lets Star do whatever she wants to
anyway so…I don’t know if this is the most effective way to train Star since
she is still just a young kid and has a hard-enough time paying attention. I don’t
know if there is something to it but I don’t like how cavalier he is about
things. The final few episodes’ kind of bugged me. Like, dude, this is her
child’s future were talking about. She has every right to stick her nose in
thank you very much.
Moon’s fears and the lesson she learns in this episode tug at the heart
strings. This woman has to accept that her young daughter is growing up fast, into
a universe that is facing some serious peril and Star will undoubtedly have to
fight soon enough. Moon is afraid, the fear is palpable and she wants to make
certain that nothing can go wrong. She probably does have some suspicions of
what’s causing it but she can’t be certain. Also,
Eclipsa? Heck yeah is she going to be important given how frequently she’s been
are getting serious in the universe of the show, Moon is afraid and she’s know
that Star is going to end up in the middle of it. For a woman who already has
so many huge responsibilities on her shoulders and yet she probably feels
powerless to protect her only child.
So the black lesbian companion gets written out after one season by being harrowingly converted into a Cyberman, and then being brought back by the girl she had a fleeting romantic connection with in episode 1, and who hadn't been seen since, and now they're flying around the universe or something...?
