Whatever you do, do not captalogue it! Keep that book out of baby Lord English’s hands!
So, it says there are three quadrants which are completely alien to her. Obviously we know that matesprite is off the table. Is she basically locked in a perpetual moraillegance with her brother? She is very nice and kind, and he is like pure fucking malicious evil, And they are basically chained together…
Oh man, I love this whole Toph Beifong type joke, where Terezi (or Toph) can’t see but she can sense well enough that people don’t realize or forget it, and she’s just totally deadpan about it.
Also ohmygod, Meenah on the floor with her legs in the air, totally overcome with how awesome her alternate self is. So awesome that she can get pummeled and not give a flying fuck.
Also, Terezi is sniffing the heck out of Dirk because he smells kind of like Dave, right? And Dave is seeing his bro, except as his peer, and ohmygod I just realized that the reason the alpha kids are entering the game a few years older than the beta kids did is so that they’ll be the same age when they meet up.
But the other jujus haven’t entered their universe yet! Is he like, preparing the universe for their jujus, by getting Dirk to destroy his? Is this how Lord English prepares/will prepare universes for his entrance or something?
Augh, and now we know why uu wanted Dirk to destroy Lil Cal. Well, or at least we know that it wasn’t because he wanted to protect Dirk or anything.
Oh my god, guys, Lord English didn’t just have one leg because of Andrew’s avatar shaking the shit out of Doc Scratch, he chewed his own leg off. Oh, Calliope was right to be worried that she’d never wake up again. But did she expect her brother would try to put a hole in paradox space itself?
So Caliborn/Lord English has possibly not slept since that flash. I am guessing, because I like to think that if Calliope had the body again, she would do whatever she could to prevent her brother from destroying everything. It would explain why Lord English looks so fucking unhinged all the time–much more unhinged than little Caliborn did, although he was a scary motherfucker in his own right. Being immortal and invincible is probably enough to drive a person crazy, anyway.
Although that’s kind of mundane, I’m thinking about whether Lord English could be pure evil driven insane, what with the connecting imagery between him and Giygas of Earthbound.
Good thinking, Aranea! Go get Calliope to help take out Lord English! I mean, if only they knew her name. Not that that would necessarily work at this point, if Caliborn took over the body entirely and she got cast into the Furthest Ring. But it seems like quite the Chekhov’s gun to tell Roxy her name and how to use it on Caliborn, and then have it completely not work or anything.
