Frankly I think Stan read all of Journal 3 once he had it. But even if we assume he didn’t, we know he photocopied every single page. Don’t try to tell me he didn’t stop when he saw that page with the scribbled out perpetual motion machine, that page that was obviously about him, and read what it said.
Don’t think for a second that reading this didn’t absolutely crush him. That he didn’t spend the rest of that night running the words over and over in his head. Thinking, I failed, I failed, I had a chance to fix things and i failed.
And don’t anyone dare tell me that the words “perhaps he can yet prove his worth to me” weren’t in his head when he laughed and said “guess I was good for something after all.”
do you have an opinion on the idea that Rolo is secretly Prince Lotor trying to get away from his dad?
i think it’s hilarious. like, not in the laughable way, but in the way that it would be such a completely new take on lotor and not what anyone saw coming at all.
i’d personally love it like “summon prince lotor” and he shows up w his new robot and platonic soulmate like “hey can my friends come along” and haggar is pissed bc there’s no way he’ll be coldhearted enough to rule an empire.
also, can you imagine hunk’s reaction? i think that’s the redeeming feature of the entire theory tbh.
in full honesty though: not sure it’s gonna happen. haggar said to summon him, implying that she knows where he is. if rolo is lotor, he’d have to be pretty deep undercover. i mean, they were in trouble with the galra and trying to capture the blue lion as a bribe to get out of it. i’m sure there’s a way it could be worked around, but i think it’s unlikely.
then again, i thought the “stan has a secret twin brother” and “keith is actually part galra” theories weren’t actually going to happen either, so don’t feel like i have any actual credibility to make this judgement.
After Stan sacrificed himself to
Bill, Ford not only fell from his pedestal, he came CRASHING down. After he
realized what a true hero Stan was, and looking back on all the menial thoughts
he once had about his brother, the horrible way he treated him, the way he
carried himself as this noble hero, not to mention all the damage he caused to
the town, Fiddleford and the kids, he just became overwhelmed by guilt. So much so that he convinces himself that
every little problem or inconvenience is his fault. He is so disgusted with his
past that he is unable to forgive himself, and is convinced that everyone
around him feels the same.
The things that gets me the most excited about Star Vs, The Forces of Evil is that the forces of evil may in fact be The Butterfly Royal Family and Mewman Society itself - because how else would you describe doing something as horrible as denying a small innocent child of her identity, her birthright, her parents love, even her own freaking name and twisting her into such a way that she grows up to be abusive and cruel – are the forces evil.
Because if that is the big plot twist of this show: that the Butterfly Royal Family are invaders and conquerors not “heroic settlers”, that the ultimate force of evil Star needs to defeat is her own toxic society, ruled by her family, then that will be an even greater plot twist since Stan Pines having a twin brother and Della Duck being introduced into canon.
Ford falls asleep sitting up straight and head lolling, only to startle himself awake when he snores.
Ford blames Stan’s snickering laughter for waking him up, but Stan claims he didn’t laugh til after Poindexter woke up.
Ford tries shrugging it off but Stan tries getting blackmail for it.
(Because Ford is Too Alert to snore, he broke himself of that habit in tbe portal, no sirree does he snore. Meanwhile Stan’s sawing logs every night for 7 hours and still finds time to tease Ford for his mini-nap snarl)
Tonight on “Grunkle Stan Lines You Already Knew Were Tragic But You Didn’t Know How Tragic Until Now…”
This is what Stan was going to say to the kids before the government showed up. At that point, he didn’t know about any of the crap that was going to go down that day. He had no reason to think the kids would find out any of his secrets before Ford showed up.
But he knew Ford’s version of events wouldn’t be flattering to him. He knew that he might lose the love of these two precious kids that he’d spent the summer growing to care for.
He’d read his journals. He knew what his brother thought of him.
“No! You don’t understand!” Why was this happening? This wasn’t how things were suppose to end up. He wasn’t suppose end up fighting with his brother again, it was simple. Give Stanley his last journal, the very first one he wrote, and send him off to go hide it where no one, not even Bill would be able to find it. It was simple, Ford had thought this through countless times, planned out every detail, and yet that’s obviously not how it was going down.
Why can’t he just listen to me for once in his life! He wants the book hidden not destroyed. He’s worked too hard for it to be lost forever.
“You said you wanted me to have it, so I’ll do what I want with it!”
