I have yet to see people truly capitalizing on the comedic potential of the beta frogbreeding session.
#like ok let’s say frogbreeding takes three weeks#and that jade and dave were working together on lofaf for four hours#i’m just throwing numbers out here#if dave was looping this entire time#there would be over 100 of him running around#he probably ate all her food#if she even had three weeks worth of food stashed#and also as a city kid i wonder how often he would have had#to be dragged out of swamps or thornbushes#this is like sitcom material ok
also dave is such an extrovert, let’s say Jade had only 4 hours, but dave can barely go 4 minutes without talking to someone, so she would have had those 100 daves all desperate for human contact but not wanting to talk to each other
oh god I’d forgotten he needs like constant validation through interaction the poor girl
as soon as they got everything straightened out on the ship she probably locked herself in somewhere, put a pillow over her head, and sighed in relief
but hang on I think someone added an entire fic thing onto my post and that must be read and properly appreciated
GT: Oh man what are your movies like in the future?? I bet there are some real cinematic humdingers. Like holographic stuff? Or shit you plug directly into your brain pod right? Wait you do have brain pods right?
TT: No. We don’t have brain pods because those aren’t a thing, you just made that up. And there are no movies in the future.
TT: There are no humans either. They all went extinct.
TT: Roxy and I are the only ones left, as far as we know.
Hmm, “as far as we know”.
I’ve always wondered how the Condesce could manage to make mankind go extinct like that. I mean, has she literally checked all islands on Earth? All tunnels, all mines, all underground bunkers? No humans in space stations either?
I guess I shouldn’t be overthinking this, seeing as it’s just fiction, but still.
Considering the Earth is flooded that does kind of limit where anyone could hide, also she has like an army of imperial drones which could’ve sought out the remaining hiding places. Also; long term habitability of any hiding places (including space stations) would be an issue, also the issue of breeding populations considering it seems the last humans before Dirk and Roxy would’ve died years ago.
Also considering the Battleship Condescension I doubt space stations would’ve provided relief from the Condesce (even disregarding the previously mentioned issues).
let’s be horrified together
i drew this in like 5 min gomen
That whole Skaia thing is why individuals like Aranea and Davesprite (and maybe??? alt!Callipe?) concern me because they really ought to be dead but they’re not and that means the universe wants them for something. And usually that’s nothing good.
Davesprite is wanted alive by Skaia, which is good, at least for the progression of reality. Aranea is wanted alive by LE but not Skaia (she purposefully went against Skaia’s will), which makes me a lot more worried about her “livingness state” than his.
Wait what do you mean Aranea is wanted alive by Lord English? I haven’t seen any sign of that yet. While she may be violating Skaia’s will, if this is happening in the alpha timeline, that means paradox space has factored it into its plan. (Whatever happened happened, essentially. Oh god I’ve really watched too much LOST. Homestuck kids have a little more wiggle room, but still a lot of it is built into the alpha.) In fact I’m p sure that her killing Jade, while rude and against the clock, will probably end up pretty vital to success.
And then with Davesprite yeah pspace definitely wants something from him because by all rights under pspace and SBURB law he should be dead by now. But he’s not the first person I would go to for any important task rn, and just because it’s temporally fixed doesn’t mean it’s necessarily good…
I think Davesprite likely survives not due to some unfulfilled loop but rather simply because he is a sprite. Sprites are attracted towards the dead and doomed for prototyping. The dead of course are revived by prototyping, but what about the doomed? If a doomed person were to die and thus no longer be doomed on account of being dead, what does revival mean for them? If they are free from being doomed that way it seems odd that prototyping a stilling doomed person would leave them doomed. If fact it would be odd that sprites are attracted to the doomed at all as opposed to waiting for them to die.
But yeah, Dave and Terezi did seem to think that prototyping was a loophole and came to believe after Davesprite’s apparent death that such loopholes were temporary, but given his continued life it would seem that the loophole are straight up 100% rule breaking/bending loopholes. Of course not-being-doomed doesn’t stop people dying, so even if Davesprite did die it would be difficult to pinpoint whether it could be attributed to his potential doomed status or not.
Also it keep it all in a single post; on that Skaia thing, it has been my personal belief for ages that Skaia basically cares only about Frogverses and little to nothing else. I would put it as Lawful Neutral as that is basically the alignment of following a personal code or belief system to the letter with no regard for good or evil, it is just Skaia’s belief is “BREED FROGVERSES”.
