THEORY TIME!!! (Regarding Hawthorne Ball, Peking Duck’s Story, and the “Tool of the Gods)
EDIT: Yep. So, someone had translated Hawthorne Ball’s story (click here), AND THIS THEORY IS OFFICIALLY DEBUNKED NOW YALL CAN FINALLY THROW YOUR TOMATOES AT ME IT WAS FUN WHILE IT LASTEDjebis thank god our ball is safe
(still keeping this up tho i actually worked hard on this for some reason)
⚠️SPOILER WARNING OBVIOUSLY!!!!!!⚠️
i think i made a discovery but i’m really afraid to post this cous it might get debunked instantly, it’s just old news/already been discovered, or a different story was already confirmed a long time ago dhdhhdh but anyway, hear me out
how tf is hawthorne ball associated with peking duck if she doesnt have a link skill with him (yuxiang and plum juice too)
she must have some sort of connection with the three of them in the stories then. idk about the other two but i think i found out what the connection between her and duck might be
i did a little bit of thinking and i’ve come up with these hypotheses:
1. Hawthorne Ball is the girl that took care of Peking Duck’s children for him at the times when he was away.
The child is described as:
“An adorable young girl with a sweet smile.“
And (it’s implied) she’s a curious child and asks Duck a lot of questions often.
“‘Roast Duck Big Bro, why do you always walk around with so many ducklings?’”
“‘Roast Duck Big Bro, where did you get the pipe you’re always smoking?’”
“‘Roast Duck Big Bro…’”
“A cute and innocent young girl, she looks at the world with awe and curiosity. She’s full of questions for you to answer! Be careful though, once you answer her, she’ll never stop asking!”
2. Peking Duck discovered the girl was sacrificed to the cult’s God. Later on in the story, when the king was begging for his life, he offered Peking Duck a “tool of the Gods,” and Duck could “feel the essence of a Food Soul radiating from it.”
“From the records I found, the Cult had once sacrificed a Food Soul to their deity.”
Who might the Food Soul be?
Freaking Hawthorne Ball.
It’s also noted in the story that the girl wears ribbons and well….. look at hawthorne ball………
I want to know what you guys think. Or has anyone found out the real reason why and how exactly Hawthorne Ball and Peking Duck are connected?????
