Okay so basically after the new episode of Aphmau’s Year, which is episode four, I have developed a theory on the snake-eyed man being Travis’s dad.
Since he is the Demon Warlock in MCD, this would be similar to a parallel of that. Travis is his son and it isn’t that far of a stretch when you do the research to prove that it actually is his father who is the snake eyed man.
The Demon Warlock has purple eyes (and so does travis when he goes into his demon form) just like the man with snake eyes is illustrated to have.
Travis also had gray eyes as a child and Tatiana says, “The snake-eyed man was taking the emeralds to create potions with effects that would last forever. He made them and even had one tested on his own son, but it failed.“
“…but it failed.” This means that since his eyes are still green, the potion can be undone and Travis can be saved. He won’t be under his father’s control anymore and he will realize what his father has done.
Travis says, ”He’s always been there. He’s just concerned about my happiness.” which we all know isn’t the case from MCD.
Travis also said that he doesn’t remember Aphmau hanging out with a lot of werewolves in high school very well. After that he goes into his “demon-like” state with with face darkened over.
Also the book was stolen after Travis’s first shown “demon-like” state breakdown which is compelling evidence already.
“No one is finally dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away—until
the clock wound up winds down, until the wine she made has finished
its ferment, until the crop they planted is harvested. The span of
someone’s life is only the core of their actual existence.”
Pratchett - Reaper Man
Its been a year already, but the ripples have yet to fade.
You know what the greatest tragedy is in the whole world?
It’s all the people who never find out what it is they really want to do or what it is they’re really good at. It’s all the sons who become blacksmiths because their fathers were blacksmiths. It’s all the people who could be really fantastic flute players who grow old and die without ever seeing a musical instrument, so they become bad ploughmen instead. It’s all the people with talents who never even find out. Maybe they are never even born in a time when it’s even possible to find out.
It’s all the people who never get to know what it is they can really be. It’s all the wasted chances
But like, there would be regular balls and such. ANd you’ve got Sam Vimes dancing with Sybill, very sedate, very formal, very conservative, because this is definitely not Sam Vimes’ idea of fun (well, dancing with Sybill is surprisingly pleasant and and he didn’t mind learning but it’s different when you’re in front of the posh nobs). So Sam and Sybill, and all the other couples, dancing very normal.
