The Sufferer's Righteous Leggings are Fedora Freak's Tall PantsSomehow, due to the nature of Paradox Space, Fedora Freak's Tall Pants made its way into the troll's universe.
Kanaya's Vampiric Transformation was intended to restore the Troll race.There is a reason why Kanaya was groomed to be a Rainbow Drinker, and why she has been drinking the various bloods of friend and foe alike. That reason? She's a failsafe in case something happened to the Matriorb. She's collecting the fluids in a similar way the Mother Grub collects them - to mix together and recreate new trolls from the slurry. How she does so is still anyone's guess, but there must be a reason to her methods.
Gamzee will end up killing Bec Noir.This is the reason why Gamzee was labled as the most important character in the comic. The Miracles video Dave linked to him broke the Juggalo's mind severely to the point of possibly self-mutilation, a similar psychotic break happening to a devote Christian being shown Jesus doing something incredibly blasphemous according to Christianity. Plus the fact that Gamzee's been almost entirely ignored by EVERYONE'S plotting and scheming due to his normally laid back nature would make him managing to defeat Bec Noir all the more mind blowing plot twist if only for the sheer unexpected nature of such an occurence. That, or Andrew called Gamzee that to mess with us.
Aradia's dreamself had been awake since her death, but glitched because she hadn't entered the medium yet.Dreamselves awaken in case of death, but because she hadn't entered the Medium, her soul couldn't travel to her dream-body. Her soul became trapped to wander Alternia until Sgrub happened, while her dreamself apparently attained maximum power and became trapped in the core of Derse.
Gamzee has been manipulating Vriska to make his cult's prophecy come true.When Dave introduced him to Insane Clown Posse, Gamzee called it blasphemy, and remembered his true nature, before the Faygo and Slime Pies addled his mind. As each troll has their own power related to their game title, whatever his is allowed him to control Vriska, and make her actions to create Bec Noir her own when he is acting through her to achieve his goals. Included in this manipulation was for Jadesprite to exist, which plays a big part in his plans for Trolls and Kids to take his cult seriously, and create the mythical paradise planet his cult believes, compared to before; and on a side note, despite everyone believing he is an export of Juggalos, he is actually a believer of something completely different and far worse, like possibly Lord English and the Green Sun. Further proof of this includes how his miracle modus, and his clubs, contain colors of the rainbow, and a variant of one of the demon clowns in his posters will turn out to be Lord English's form. Heck, let's say looking at the colors are actually Lord English downloading commands into his mind to trigger later, initiating the end of the Trolls' and Kids' universes.
Eridan destroyed the Matriorb to live out his old fantasies of genocideHe is pretty much slaughtering everyone for the hell of it at this point, and destroying the Matriorb was just a dick move. Eridan's decided that now that he actually can wipe out all the land-dwellers with his SCIENCE power... he will.
Rainbow Drinker Kanaya is still in total control of her rational facilities, and will not be going on a murderous rampage.The only reason she sucked Feferi's blood was because the high-quality-ness of it is irresistable to rainbow drinkers. Other than that, she's just like she was before, except with a gaping hole in her uterus and, presumably, much harder to kill.
Gamzee's WTF attack against the Black KingWas The Bunny. He has access to every weapon due to Jokerkind, including the Warhammer of Zillyhoo, one of The Bunny's weapons. Naturally, he'd have use of The Bunny itself as well, since John has Bunnykind in his Strife Deck.
The Matriorb Will Be RestoredKanaya will instruct Karkat, the only one of the group with the necessary experience, to appearify a copy of the Matriorb. Because it is destined to be destroyed, it will instead produce a ghost image. After a few more attempts, the appearifier will have enough genetic material to create one or more new Matriorbs.
When Kanaya became a Rainbow Drinker, she wandered around in a trance for a while before regaining consciousnessHere, Kanaya sees bite marks appear on Terezi's neck to her apparent surprise. Shortly after, she disappears from the Dream Bubble. The fact that Kanaya is still in the Dream Bubble at this point indicates that she's still unconscious. At this time her body was moving entirely on instinct, seeking out blood so she had enough strength to fully revive. The blood from Terezi put her over the top, so she awoke, whereupon her first action was to bandage Terezi's neck.
Since Karkat was closest to the new universe before the scratch, his ideas had the most influence on itAll humans have red blood, for instance. One troll (I forget which, I think Vriska when she is talking to John) says that Karkat would have been better off as a human- maybe because he created the human's psychology to resemble his own.
His Honorable Tyranny is still aliveJust because Mindfang managed to leave doesn't mean he died. He could have decided to let her leave after a brief sparring. Or after she caused massive damage.
The Rainbow Drinker subculture is a haven of monosexuality.That's how Kanaya is a lesbian. It kind of makes sense, if you don't think about it too hard.
Karkat is an empath.Lower blood colors are shown to have stronger psychic abilities; Karkat's mutation doesn't exempt him, it simply masks which class he would be, which is exactly the class his astrological order implies. This is why he's good at reading people, hearing their problems and telling them what the need to hear. This is also why he's so foul-tempered; trolls aren't very pleasant to be around even when you can't feel their emotions. In "[S] Kanaya: Return to the core" when Equius offers to brotherly hug with his sweaty body, and Karkat recoils with a: "Don't touch me." This is how Karkat feels in his mind, all the time.
The Mother Grub creates some type of chemical or psychic signal or something similar that compells trolls born from it to remain loyal to the Empress and caste system.But since the trolls and their ancestors were created by ectobiology instead they're free of that compulsion, which is why most of the ancestors we've learned of so far have been traitors or criminals and why most of the trolls, though too young to do much in the way of rebelling yet, mostly don't seem to care at all about the hemospectrum and why many of them have decidedly untrollish personalities. Of course, they're also free to buy completely into the status quo, so some of them do.
The Mother Grub is not a natural part of the Troll lifecycleTrolls used to reproduce in a manner not that dissimilar to Homo sapiens, their human-like sexual dimorphism is a relic of this period and the Mother Grub is a biotechnological intervention. The filial pail is part of this technological innovation as this form of reproduction required considerable alterations to the Troll's own biology in order to work. Due to these modifications, they are almost certainly sterile without the aid of the mother grub by this point. The Lususii are a part of this program of biological alteration and augmentation as well; allowing the trolls to outsource child-rearing as well as childbearing. Most likely, the Imperial Drones are a component as well. There are several possible reasons for this change. Amongst others: freeing female trolls from having to bear their young or raise them, increased reproductive efficiency so that the vast hosts needed to conquer and hold their massive interstellar empire could be bred; or purely for reasons of ideology. Whatever the reason for this, it was done well outside of living memory; likely even before the time of the ancestors. No matter what advantage this lent the Alternian Empire, it has certainly doomed what remains of it as the trolls are effectively extinct; as of current events/timeline at least.
Every single dead troll/person will somehow get revived, be it the Scratch, The Windy Thing, shenanigans, offshoot timelines, whatever.Because god dammit I'm going to cry.
Kanaya will try to revive Vriska as a rainbow drinker.Can rainbow drinkers do that? Who knows, real world vampire fiction isn't exactly consistent on the rules for how vampires can make more vampires.
The DEAD Trolls won't come backLet's face facts, there are currently 6 dead trolls and of them only Vriska is anywhere close to being a main character. Gamzee will probably end up dying as well. And if we look at the other people, they're all relatively flat characters. Based on Tavros and Dave, they'll enjoy being dead because it seems to be pretty nice actually. However at some point they'll help out the still living players in some fashion, perhaps with the final boss. And they won't really be gone ever because the remaining players will dream in dreambubbles for the rest of their lives presumably.
Gamzee manipulated Terezi's vision of Vriska's fight with Noir.This is the only way any theory involving Gamzee killing Karkat would work... but it's kind of spooky how well it does. Here, Hussie raises the possibility of Gamzee manipulating Terezi into pinning his crimes on Vriska in order to get her to kill Vriska, but why would he stop there? It's all but stated that Terezi would not have been able to bring herself to kill Vriska without the knowledge of her vision; it's a bit too convenient that the future where Vriska runs off to confront Noir is one Terezi considers enough of a Bad Future to overcome that reticence. Gamzee's manipulation could have been as simple as forcing Terezi's vision to remain focused on Vriska, blinding her to the fact that Noir would have only discovered the already-dead bodies of Karkat and Terezi, rather than killing them himself.
Karkat is the second coming of Jegus, and will sacrifice himself to save Earth.
Doc Scratch never accounted for the Sufferer
Regarding Gamzee's WTF attack on the Black KingGamzee can use any weapon through use of the Jokerkind strife specibus. He copies the Black King's motif meaning he is somehow copying BK's weapon. The trolls (or at least Karkat) don't understand exactly what he did so he didn't sprout tentacles or a second mouth or anything like that. Instead he copied BK's ability to cause a Vast Glub. Gamzee executed a Vast Glub that targeted only one being. He did it with honks. Enjoy the nightmares.
Karkat will die at the hands of Sollux, John, or himself.It's the only way to break the curse.
Jadebloods become Rainbow Drinkers through sun exposure.This is why the Dolorosa was forbidden to leave the caverns.
Gamzee's 'honks' are produced vocally.The noise is a vocalization that sounds something like the calls of geese. It's an ability that may have been useful in the troll's ancient ancestry (such as a warning cry or a means of long-distance communication,) but has mostly died out of the modern generations from lack of use. Few remaining trolls can make this noise, but those who can usually choose not to, since it's annoying and doesn't have any practical applications outside of making people uncomfortable with you. (Like humans who can wiggle their ears.) Gamzee, being the resident Cloud Cuckoolander, continued honking anyway because he thought it was funny, and got into the habit of doing it in place of laughter. So the ungodly honking that the others hear during his rampage is an audible, vocal noise; possibly the insane laughter of a highblood on his killing spree.
Gamzee manipulated Eridan into defecting.No idea if this will ever be brought up again (Though, knowing Hussie...), but will posit this anyway: like how he planted the clown doll into John's mind, and Lil' Cal into Dave's, Gamzee planted something into Eridan's head that somehow convinced him to defect. Thus, killing Feferi and Kanaya (And destroying the Matriorb) by proxy in his mission to kill everybody. Of course, Eridan could just be that much of a jerk.
Eridan knew Gamzee had snapped.That's what he meant by "know when all hope is lost". He faced a choice of death by dog or death by clown. At least the dog had been known to keep underlings, in another universe.
We're giving Gamzee way too much creditHe's a stoner who lost his shit once he went into withdrawal, not some sort of supergenius with an elaborate plan to conquer the universe.
Karkat will go all God Head Pickle Inspector when he ascends to God-TierJust like Rose went all Demonhead Mobster Kingpin during Seer: Descend. Otherwise, his God-Tier form will simply be mind-boggingly impressive to justify all the mystery involving his powers.
Pre-Scratch!Sufferer was asleep when the scratch happenedHe remembers his alternate timeline because his Dreamself "survived" the process and merged with his Post-Scratch!Alternia self. Since he was the leader, we could extrapolate that his companions put him to sleep (possibly against his will) hoping this would happen.
Karkat has "stigmata" marks from the Sufferer's tortureWhich is why he wears long sleeves.
Some more trolls are going to reach the God Tier.The end of act 5 has turned much of what we know about ascending on its head. Perhaps a player only needs one self to be alive and it doesn't matter which one. Additionally, the new hoodies in the store imply that at least one hero of Mind and Heart are going to ascend, and since there will be hoodies of all the different God Tiers eventually, perhaps one of each role will ascend. Four of them could belong to post-Scratch players, assuming the human session still has four players in the post-Scratch universe, but that still leaves four more God Tiers. Maybe Karkat, Terezi, Gamzee and Kanaya can still ascend.
Nepeta's coat is in fact what remains of the Sufferer's Righteous Leggings.The Disciple absconded with them in a cave, where she lived for the rest of her days. Every night, she would cry herself to sleep and wipe the tears to the Leggings, gradually, over the decades, painting them green. Finally, long after her death, the cave was inhabited by another young troll, who turned the Leggings (perhaps with the help of the labour drones that constructed her hive) into a coat for her to wear.
Sollux is going to reach God Tier soon.The main requirement for reaching God Tier seems to be facing your own death, and Sollux has died twice so far but is still around. His current "half-alive, half-dead" state seems like an unresolved one, and God Tier (being life after death) seems like a good resolution. Plus, Aradia being d00med was eventually resolved by her reaching God Tier, so it seems appropriate for Sollux to reach the same end.
Not every Troll will reach God Tier, but every Troll will reach some higher stateAlong the lines of Kanaya becoming a Rainbow Drinker and Sollux being between life and death. The avenues to God Tier seem to be closed off to the remaining Trolls now, but they may have other destinies.
Aradia is going to die.She's about to help slow Jack down for everybody trying to outrun him, and he is going to kill her. It will be considered 'heroic' because her death will help to buy her friends necessary time.
Gamzee took Sollux and Vriska's bodies because he wants to try and resurrect them somehow.He certainly didn't seem to still be aggressive in the pages leading up to his getaway, and seemed fairly upset by Karkat's reaction to his honking. Perhaps he wants to try and bring back the only dead trolls who still have their heads to try and make up for the ones he killed. Whether he'll succeed is another matter entirely. If this theory is correct, perhaps he will also be the one who finds a way to help WV.
Some of the pre-scratch Trolls survived, much like the pre-scratch human players haveAnd they are also, secretly, on their way to the post-scratch Human Session, having somehow figured out that its where they need to be. They will first appear in a Big Damn Heroes moment that may or may not fail miserably due to lack of combat prowess.
Sollux and Aradia end up together by the endSollux has an association with the colours red and blue. Aradia had red blood, but now has blue blood.
Kanaya's God Tier Design is that of Hussie's DesignKanaya has told Jade that a Sylph is like a higher Witch. Earlier Troll Hussie was wearing Kanaya's symbol, AND (due to author status) would be the highest class in the game. There fore, Hussie could've been wearing the Sylph design; which would correspond with Kanaya's god tier design.
Why Feferi couldn't revive but Jane couldQuite simple really, Feferi's Witch title is active, so she could utilize her powers to heal others, whereas Jane's Maid title is passive, so she utilizes her powers to heal herself.
Zillyhoo is the top SubjugglatorThis one took a bit of thinking for me to figure out. The Warhammer of Zillyhoo is one of the end-game weapons, right? So why would both John and Gamzee both be able to wield it? Simple, really. Zillyhoo is an 8-letter name, similar to (most of) the rest of the trolls' ancestors. He was also the Grand Highblood (9 letters, does not fit with theme). So it would only make sense that both the standard wielder of hammerkind strife specibi (John) and his Descendant (Gamzee) would be able to equip it! ...Also the bunny, but it can use everything.
Feferi will be back as more then just a dream ghost.Given that her ancestor has become the acting Big Bad at the moment, it would just be a missed opportunity to not have them interact in some form.
Equius wasn't always quite as strong as he is.He was already strong at birth, hence his lusus, but not quite as ludicrously so as he is when we are introduced to him. It's commonly theorized that the "Heir" class is a weak-start, high-growth class, at least as seen with John. However, unlike John, Equius has extensive combat experience already as a result of robot deathmatches. The reason Equius is already competent is because he's basically been powerleveling!
Gamzee was God Tier the whole time he was on the trolls' meteor.He just wore his old mortal clothes and didn't exactly tell anyone he'd ascended for whatever reason. Hey, I have a perfectly good reason for guessing this one: How else could he have ascended when Jack destroyed LOTAM and Prospit (among every other planet)?
Gamzee is selling troll blood to Jane because......he knows she's the Maid of Life, and is hoping that if she does the Lifey Thing while she has the blood (or possibly after drinking some of it), it will revive the dead trolls. This is why he's so pushy about making sure she takes the 'potions'. He's only charging for them as a cover because if he didn't, she might start questioning his motives for forcing all these odd potions on her, and she might be more likely to talk to people about it, making it more likely word would get back to the other trolls, who might draw the wrong conclusions. But pushy salesmen aren't all that unusual in games, so if he charges for them, she might just dismiss him as a weird NPC.
Trolls don't have human style reproductive organs.The reproduce through sweat. That sweat is collected into buckets and then taken to the Mother Grub. An example of this is seen in Equius who sweats whenever he's aroused.
Keeping with the Sburb/Sims theme, trolls reproduce the same way Sims in the original game did: by kissing a lot.This would explain why uu found the incredibly tame things he asked Dirk to draw so pornographic.
Vriska and Tavros are going to somehow find a way to come back to life.I CANNOT be the only one who thought this the moment Vriska said 'we're going to fuck shit up.' They're going to do it, I have no idea how but they will!
The Dead Libra troll, if one exists, will have rounded shades like Dave.Bonus points if we learn that she used to wear glasses like Terezi's, but changed them when she received a gift from a friend.
The Unknown Dead Trolls were the "friends" Dream Jade made in the afterlifeI can totally see a shocking revelation like this happening. Especially since - if they are the pre-Scratch trolls - they would be more likely to be friendly. Emphasis on more likely.
Other Pre-scratch troll namesIn case any others show up (Pre-scratch Sufferer will likely), I've been looking for zodiac names that fit the 6-letter formula. Feel free to add more.
Pre-Scratch Alternia was named "Mars"This troper thinks it would be hilarious if the trolls turned out to be Martians all along.
Pre-Scratch Alternia was named "Earth"As different option to the above.
Explanations on Pre- and Post- Scratch PersonalitiesAranea has already stated that in life, she wished she could be more adventurous, and exciting. That turned her into Vriska in the Post-Scratch session. All of the Post-Scratch trolls' personalities are due to the desires of the Pre-Scratch Trolls. My guesses so far, feel free to add your own!
Meenah is the reason that the dead Prescratch ancestors are in the dreambubbles.The plan she spoke of was in fact her last gambit to exist in some form. Aranea's description of her implies she's not evil at all, merely rough around the edges, comparing her to Vriska. (Who, recall, risked her life seeking revenge for Karkat and Terezi's deaths in an alternate timeline.) Meenah truly did care about her fellow players, and with the impending Scratch, in order to allow them to "live" on in the dream bubbles, she stole their lives as befitting her title so that they would not be erased forever in the Scratch.
Meenah will leave her dream bubblePonder this text from UU.
Pre-Scratch Trolls' TitlesAranea and Meenah both share aspects with their post-Scratch successors, but not their classes. Nor did the classes simply switch between the two of them (meaning Aranea wasn't the Witch of Light despite Meenah being the Thief of Life). Not a huge leap of reasoning to say this is probably a theme amongst all of the trolls. (Working off a WMG in the Unified Theories section for classes.)
Meenah at one point had a fight with the A1 version of the Handmaid.Likely as part of Meenah's plan to die. In that fight, if it was part of the plan, Meenah died and thus succeeded. Why do I say this? Circumstantial simultaneity. The fuchsia-blooded troll in a fight to the death against the rust-blooded troll, with one of them hoping to die in the fight as part of a plan that involves the destruction of a universe? From my pitifully limited understanding of the concept of circumstantial simultaneity, that certainly sounds like it could mirror the fight between the Condesce and the Handmaid. What's more, the fates of players in a post-Scratch session seem to mirror in some ways their pre-Scratch equivalentsnote , so why not for pre-Scratch players in their post-Scratch status as ancestors? Plus, this might be why we never saw Meenah or Aranea before the Scratch: until the Condesce killed the Handmaid, Meenah's fight with the pre-Scratch Handmaid hadn't happened yet, since it happened "at the same time as" the battle between their post-Scratch versions.
Meenah once had flushed feelings for Aranea.We know at least one female troll has been flushed for Aranea. Meenah is the only other pre-scratch troll we know about so far, and we know she and Aranea got along, while the other pre-scratch trolls didn't like Aranea much. Perhaps Meenah liked Aranea a little too much.
Pre-scratch Sufferer and Dolorosa are moirailsJust based on the fact their post-scratch selves are extremely close, with the Sufferer being basically the only troll raised by another troll, and the Dolorosa being pretty much the only troll to raise another troll.
Gamzee is in some way connected to the CherubimCalliope's cosplay horns closely resemble his. Also, Gamzee has a connection to Doc Scratch and Cal, who have been shown to be connected to the Cherubim and Lord English.
Pre-Scratch Karkat was that universe's version of the Sufferer.Aranea wears the sign of Cancer, which shouldn't make sense... unless the Pre-Scratch universe had a Sufferer, too. Since the trolls and their ancestors were switched after the Scratch, the same way the Kids and their Guardians were, it had to have been Karkat. One of the reasons why the troll race was so peaceful, aside from the lack of Doc Scratch's interference, is that Karkat's revolution was actually successful. It would make sense. The Pre-Scratch session was a failure; Post-Scratch, on the other hand, Karkat was able to unite the trolls and win their session, and the obstacles that prevented them from claiming their prize were at the time out of their control. Plus, the way things are now, he still stands a chance of helping fix the rest of the mess they're in. In other words, in both troll universes, the troll we know as the Sufferer was always doomed to fail, while the troll we know as Karkat Vantas was always the one to succeed.
Sopor Slime is made from the blood (or other parts) of limeblooded trolls
The other WMG for Pre-Scratch Troll Classes was getting cluttered. My guesses:
Meenah has a red crush on Mituna because his name has "tuna" in it.Just calling it before the next update probably makes it obvious. We already know from the A 6 I 3 update that she has been waiting for an opening for his red quadrant even though Latula has had it filled all this time so the only remaining question would be why?
Gamzee redacted large amounts of information from Rose's Chronicle to prevent Caliborn, not Calliope, from gaining information on Lord English (the former's future self).Think about it. If Caliborn knew about the information hidden in the tome, he would be able to use it to his advantage. Gamzee recognized that he ultimately served as a pawn for his "Mirthful Messiahs" when Doc Scratch told him that the players all fell into his trap, even after renouncing his religion. Since he knew he had some role in setting the trap up to begin with, he decided to sabotage events in the future in order to buy everyone else that much more time to put a stop to the Demon's plots.
The King In Red(an unfinished Karkat's Theme remix) was gonna be used for him going God Tier......But since it was never finished, they cut God Tier Karkat from happening, only allowing him to appear in a dream bubble from a doomed timeline.
Gamzee's gonna fight Nepeta in a dream bubble......And she will be PISSED OFF. She'll probably lose(whether or not she really fought Gamzee the first time is unknown, since she only scratched him indirectly), but Gamzee will freak out.
Pre-Scratch Summoner's typing quirk substitutes i's with '1'....Like Tavros' 't1CK' code.
Meulin's Class will be the Mage class.I think it's the only class that could possibly be unisex because all female classes have been taken and Page,Bard,Prince,and Heir are all male classes. Knight has already been assigned to Latula which made what seemed like a male exclusive class become unisex. Seer has also been revealed to be unisex because of Kankri. Mages outside of homestuck are usually female, but in the Homestuck universe Sollux is currently the only known Mage. Meulin couldn't be a Rogue becuase Nepeta is already the Mars Rogue of Heart.
Gamzee is going to betray KurlozHis moirallegiance with Karkat stopped his murderous rampage before. When push comes to shove, he'll sabotage Kurloz's efforts for Karkat's sake, which will prove instrumental in Caliborn's defeat.
Tavros's ancestor will be an Internet Tough Guy, only not on the internetIt'd make a hilarious contrast to Tavros, who barely has a spine, and Kankri, who's overly and annoyingly sensitive. He'd be cursing all over the place, hyping himself up against people who disagree with him, and just be a humongous douche who can't back up all the grandiose gloating he does. Yet, somehow, Cronus would still be a bigger tool than him.
Kurloz is the source of Mituna's problems.He was the only witness to the event that burned out Mituna's psionics and left him brain-damaged, and Mituna is said to be lucid around Kurloz. Chances are, pre-accident Mituna was onto whatever plan Kurloz had, and had to be dealt with.
Kurloz has split personalities.But they are closer in nature to Mituna's than Gamzee's: while Gamzee's personalities are both evil, Mituna switches between raving asshole and Extreme Doormat. Kurloz was most likely a genuinely decent person (aside from the whole cult thing) before his vision of Lord English, which along with the guilt from deafening Meulin made him go deeper into his religion and triggered his evil manipulative cultist personality. Good!Kurloz is most likely unaware of his other side's existence, considering his friendly interactions with Meulin before the codpiece is presented to him.
The 'Mirthful Messiah' that Gamzee and Kurloz are conspiring with isn't who you think it is.It's actually Calliope. The 'Vast Honk' that Kurloz heard was a desperate scream from what remained of her within Caliborn, transcending both space and time (incidentally, both Calli and Caliborn's powers in the game) so that somebody, somewhere, would hear it and try to set her free. It should also be noted that between Lord English's dual personalities, Calliope was definitely the more 'mirthful' between them. The word 'Calliope' is also related to the circus, similar to the clown-like Gamzee and Kurloz (the first of which has a song dedicated to him called "Midnight Calliope".) With that said, Gamzee and Kurloz are actually conspiring not to help Lord English, but to get close enough to him to set Calliope free, as it was alluded to earlier in the story that the only way to disable Lord English was to say her name in his presence. That's why they are keeping their movements a secret from everybody whilst maintaining the guise of being psychopathic clowns - they're making sure nobody, especially not Lord English, is aware of this.
Kurloz sabotaged his own sessionWhich is why it was Unwinnable and they needed a Scratch in the first place. After all, if they won, his Messiah would never be reborn through incubation by Doc Scratch. He used psychic influence to contribute to and exacerbate the psychological cluster*** that was his Session, and may have even conspired with his Jack Noir behind everybody's backs.
Damara is a TroperThe pre-scratch Trolls appear to be parodies of every internet user that annoys Andrew. People who edit his posts, rabid fangirls, people who think Eridan is not that bad, etc. I got the idea from his formspring that he doesn't particularly like our site. He described it as "The holy scripture for anime nerds", and judging by the leaked sprites, Damara is wearing a Japanese schoolgirl outfit or something similar. Also, she used the Quills of Echidna. Trope-tan fights with a quill.
Terezi wouldn't show her face to Karkat because she's dead, perhaps having been Driven to Suicide.All ghosts in Homestuck are shown to have milky white eyes. If Terezi had died, it stands to reason that her eyes would be white as well. It's possible that something unseen happened to her, possibly between her and Dave, and that Terezi wound up killing herself as a result—if this were the case, it makes sense that she'd be reluctant to let her possible former matesprit, Karkat, find out. It would also give a bigger reason for her moping around in the dreambubbles—she felt guilty about her suicide.
Eridan was actually Asexual and overcompensating.His behaviour comes across less as actual desire and more as trying to shove himself into a relationship for the sake of being normal (and, pre-S Grub, not being culled). With Alternian culture the way it is, he never had an opportunity to find out what asexuality is. He pursued Feferi because she was there, couldn't grasp why she would prefer Sollux over him since he's never experienced love/pity, and assumed she was trying to get him killed or shame him as opposed to simply not being interested, hence why he got so angry. Explored in more detail in these fics.
Karkat Vantas...Has tourettes syndrome. Think about it. He cusses randomly out of nowhere, and he seems to be screaming, but that might just be his typing style.
The entire purpose of Meenah's obsession with money and fascination with her other life as Betty Crocker......is to set up the mother of all "Because I knead the dough" jokes.
The Tavros we've been seeing from the 10/11/12 update onward......is actually Andrew Hussie in disguise.
Tavros and Vriska will accidentally help Lord EnglishThe two of them met thanks to the bizarre actions of Gamzee, who is working for Lord English. This suggests that whatever they are doing (hunting for a Game Breaker treasure) is something he wants done. After all, their quest is motivated by Vriska's belief that what they really need to beat Lord English is a quick fix cheat of some sort, and we all know how well that's worked out for her in the past.
Mituna actually did make it to God TierHe's probably wearing a pressure vest, and nobody ever told him how to take it off for his own benefit. Meenah is not aware of this, since she hasn't been in the dreambubble as long. Mituna probably doesn't remember/lost his powers with the incident/thought his power as heir of doom kind of sucks/ doesn't really care, anyway.
Gamzee is not God Tier, but he and Kurloz think he is.Kurloz seems to put a lot of importance on putting together what is probably Gamzee's God Tier outfit, perhaps out of the belief that the outfit is what gives the powers. They will be proved wrong in the most hilariously Problem Sleuth-esque way possible. "Of course you aren't God Tier just because you happen to be wearing the outfit. You're not sure why you ever would have thought otherwise."
The Pre-Scratch trolls actually are fantrolls.One day someone created a bunch of bad fantrolls and wished on a star that they could become real. So the Author Fairy came down (in a dress) and waved his magic wand, thus making them canon.
Here's what I think happened with Mituna and Kurloz in the mysterious incident.Mituna told the trolls about his visions, but none of them believed him, right? Well, that's only if you believe Aranea is completely correct about everything, and from opening the chests in the meenahquest games, you can see that sometimes the prescratch lot have no idea what's actually going on. So, I think that Kurloz did believe Mituna about the visions, but because of his sewn mouth, had difficulty explaining this to the others. Either that, or there wasn't time because the danger was imminent. Hence why Aranea thinks nobody believed Mituna. So, Kurloz and Mituna go out to face this danger, and it is a psychic as well as physical danger. They get as far away fron the others as possible hoping it will attack them rather than the others, hence why they were alone, and Mituna uses his powers to form a sort of force field around himself and the others while Kurloz uses his chucklevoodoos to stop the psychic threat. However, I think that being so close to Kurloz while they both used such a large amount of power damaged Mituna's mind, as he was hit both by the strain of holding such a powerful shield, and the edge of the strongerst chucklevoodoos Kurloz could pull off, as well as being affected by whatever psychic powers the thing they defeated had.
Tavros isn't trying to propose to Vriska. At least, not in the sense we might be thinking of.He's encountered the idea of human matrimony twice before. Once was during his feeble attempt to troll Dave, when Dave mentioned it before he verbally tore him to shreds and sent him packing. The second was with Hussie stalking/proposing to Vriska, to which she reacted with revulsion and repeated attempts to avoid him. Taking into account his passive-aggressiveness, such as when he dumped the maps on the ground rather than giving them to her, he doesn't want to marry her. He wants to make her go away.
Gamzee is a juju.Think about it. Here is what we know about jujus so far;
Meenah will enact her role as Thief of Life by literally stealing another character's life for herself.... Bonus points if this unlucky individual is upon their quest bed at the time. I'm hoping for Terezi or Karkat.
The wings really ARE part of the outfit, and thus Gamzee isn't dead.He survived being kicked off a cliff by Kanaya and launched by a massive explosion. I think Gamzee is gonna take more than that to kill.
That's not what the Bard God Tier outfit usually looks like.The other God Tier outfits are at least marginally more dignified. Gamzee either threw something together himself if he's not God Tier or modified the provided outfit magically if he is, just to make everyone assume he's stupid and harmless again.
Gamzee is FTM.There actually isn't anything external behind that codpiece, he just got it to distract the eye now he's old enough to grow unwanted boobs.
Kurloz will be the one to call Calliope's name.His oral mutilations are likely to be relevant to the plot in some way. Calliope is one half of the Messiahs as well, so he technically could be influenced by her as well as Caliborn. Thus, it's possible Caliborn/LE intentionally influenced him into destroying his own voice to prevent him calling Calliope back, and he'll get it back in the nick of time.
Sburb is set up to intentionally turn Post-Scratch players' lives into warped versions of their desires.Either because the game itself is malevolent or it was designed by evil forces, this is possible. Aranea claimed they got to "live out their wildest fantasies", but observe;
Kurloz's catastrophic nightmare...... involved him seeing what his post-Scratch self did to everyone he'd known on Beforus. It wasn't pretty.
All Patron Trolls are destined to fall in love with their respective kidsVriska loves John, Terezi loves Dave, Kanaya loves Rose, and Karkat has ship teases with Jade. Hmmm...
Dream Gamzee is still aliveGamzee never dies because of his clown immortality, and that extends to his Dream Self. Dream Gamzee is still flying around the troll's session, doing who-knows-what. He may be gathering up the leftovers from Jack's rampage for something. (Maybe he's collecting the remnants of their worlds and the moons, to try and piece their quest beds back together?)
Terezi is spying on Gamzee and is not really on his side. Also there's something about the eyes thing here.We know Terezi's ancestor Redglare was secretly a follower of the Signless, a fact that hasn't ever come up again. She also worked for Gamzee's ancestor the Grand Highblood, so it would make sense if Terezi was secretly spying on him. Terezi is hiding her eyes for some reason, and there was for a time a theory that she was dead, but now we know she's not. In addition, Meulin doesn't have the flashy-color-eyes thing all the time, so it's probably not hiding mind control. This is actually because she's taken Aranea's offer at some point and is no longer blind, breaking the 'hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil' pattern that would be apparent if she was not a spy, following the line of Kurloz and Meulin. The most telling piece of evidence, though, comes from a pun on her name: Spyrope. Dragon pun, right there.
Sollux is naturally attracted to scary people.He liked Aradia (who is fascinated by death), his most recent girlfriend was Feferi (who is kind of crazy, likes and was raised by Eldritch Abominations) and has a red and black thing for Gamzee (self explanatory).
The mass genocide of the limebloods was actually instigated by Lord English/Scratch.Simply because Calliope had similarily colored blood. Limebloods being a threat to the authorities was only a cover-up, or something.
The Sufferer wasn't a troll version of Jesus...He was a troll version of Vladimir Lenin.
Kanaya will go Mama Bear on Jane for stabbing Karkat.Just like the Dolorosa on John, only with more blood. HISS!
Meenah and her Ghost Army will be used to defeat The CondesceMeenah has shown in the past that she has more morals than her post-scratch counterpart, if only regarding specific individuals that she cares about and The Condesce does not, is inevitably going to become involved, and has stated that she cannot control herself regarding seething hatred of any other Royal Trolls - potentially including her alternate self.
Tinkerbulls were the most dangerous species on Alternia.This is how Tavros survived growing up as The Woobie on a death world, and why Jake was so terrified when they tried to express affection to him.
Kurloz' nightmare was the result of Lord English's time powers.Highblooded trolls must be naturally psychologically set up to cope with multiple millenia of life, avoiding the problems that humans living that long would suffer. As a Lord of Time, LE can manipulate time. Kurloz' nightmare was simply how his life would be if he experienced time the way a human would. No wonder it sent him insane.
Gamzee has the power that John has - and both are "unstuck" in canon.Think about it - he has a tendency to show up and watch (or even interfere with) events in many situations, and then completely disappear. It's been established that there are no instances of a dead Gamzee in any timeline, and that Gamzee can even leave one session to enter another dimension (as he did with raising Calliope/Caliborn). What if Gamzee has been manipulating the fabric of Paradox Space itself?
Gamzee's actions to ensure Lord English's rise follow the same logic that led Vriska to ensure that the players would have to deal with Bec NoirSince Lord English has clearly been influencing events already, trying to subvert his existence would simply create a doomed timeline, which would probably just be useless. So he figures he may as well make sure what needs to happen happens and may or may not be planning to turn on him later. Basically, how can you prevent English's existence WHEN HE IS ALREADY HERE!? What any of this has to do with screwing with Terezi and donning fake God Tier garb I have no idea.
Kankri was castrated.Beforus' Crapsaccharine World status is exactly the kind of place where well-meaning eugenics could thrive, and even if it wasn't so extreme Kankri's vow of celibacy may be related to social pressure not to make more mutants. In darker interpretations, the idea that he may have had some surgical "help" isn't impossible; he tells everyone he's celibate because he doesn't want them to know. In the dreambubbles, his body healed and he has his reproductive organs back, and is not dealing with it terribly well, as we see in his interaction with Latula.
Kanaya will take up Jade's sword.Kanaya will fall asleep and wake up in a dreambubble where she'll meet Jade's ghost. Jade will tell her where her quest bed on LOFAF is and instruct Kanaya to die on it. Kanaya will do as instructed and ascend as a fully realized Sylph of Space. And I for one seriously hope she kills Aranea afterward.
Aranea will in the end give the resurrection ring to JadeThere's two ways this can go. Willingly, where she gives it as penance after she realizes that she's going overboard, or unwillingly, where it gets taken from her and given to ghost-Jade somehow (possibly involving an appearifier).
Aranea manipulated Terezi by using GamzeeUn-blinding Terezi was always a part of her plan. When Terezi refused, Aranea decided to mind-control Gamzee into making Terezi insecure enough to come back to Aranea and get her eyes fixed. Honestly, this wouldn't be too out-of-character given what we know about her now.
Gamzee was created for the sole purpose of unleashing or aiding in the unleashing of Lord English.If you think about it, it makes sense. He has never died in ANY of the timelines. Why is that? Because Lord English created him, and he is basically made to be a durable tool. The only reason he didn't start sooner is because he was stoned on soper slime (and even then it seems he may have underlying loyalty to his masters. Mirthful Messiahs anyone?), and while he did use the term "lowblood", he never specifies that the blood COLOR makes them low. His default purpose was activated, and he went on a killing spree. Karkat is able to become his moirail and keep him pacified and realize that he ultimately did care for his friends. But through one way or another (maybe he went to "factory default") he slowly sunk back to his purpose. More evidence to this fact is after he left, we have seen very little emotion from him aside from complete dogged loyalty to CALIBORN, who is the spawn of Lord English, and a refusal to accept rejection.
Terezi will blind Gamzee.Poetic justice at work.
Gamzee will kill Aranea.A man can dream...
Gamzee has been overtaken by Rage.No, not the emotion, the Aspect itself. Hear me out. John's aspect seems to give him control of The Breeze. It looks as though, according to Jack Noir, the Breeze is protecting him in some way, having a sort of will of its own. Why can't Rage be the same way??? Except worse? What I think is, when Gamzee channeled his Rage in his attacks, the more he channeled, the more it took hold of him. He was consumed to the point of wanting to end the universe, by joining Caliborn, and now it seems like their is very little of him left (and the mind control didn't help) based on his brief moment of clarity (or was it?) with Terezi. If it was an act, it's likely he is Pure Rage at this point.
Gamzee has no motive, and is just doing what he does for shits and giggles.And it will be in a big moment, someone asking "Why are you doing this", and Gamzee just says "Because why not" or something of the sort.
Tavros was emotionally capable of saving Vriska from bleeding to death, but he chose not to.
Eridan Ampora is actually Netherlands from Axis Powers HetaliaHe looks suspiciously similar to Neth. Also, the scarf, coat and hair. he looks exactly like a troll version of him if you take off his glasses!
Tavros will come back to life and arrive on LOFAFWhen Tavros decided he'd had enough of Vriska and actually showed a massive amount of spine, he did the one thing that none of the pre-scratch trolls did despite being in the Dream Bubbles for countless sweeps, he developed as a person. Coupled with the fact that he then flew off unaided which he could never do before he could possibly be on his way back to the waking world.
Vriska will come back to life and help everyoneSooner or later, Aranea will either go to sleep or be knocked unconscious. At this moment Vriska and Meenah will tag-team her in a dreambubble, working together as Thieves (come on, they have a common Title, this has to be relevant somehow), and Vriska will take the ring (because Meenah explicitly doesn't want to). She will take control of Gamzee, subdue him somehow, then find Roxy and give her the ring, willingly surrendering her narrative importance and going back to Meenah and pissed-off Aranea. Roxy will go to sleep, find Calliope, give her the ring, and then there will be rainbows, puppies and party baloons because why the hell not. Well, it will probably be more complicated than that, seeing how this plan ignores Her Imperious Condescension who's likely to have her own plans for all involved, but the core points are: Vriska&Meenah steal the ring from Aranea when she's next in the dreambubble, Vriska takes it and comes back to life, and then after some events willingly gives the ring away because that's what she planned to do from the start.
Damara is actually fluent in English/West Beforan.She chooses to speak Japanese/East Beforan instead, to mess with people, but she's actually completely bilingual, and was faking poor English to mess with the kids. It's also poasible that the reason she refuses to speak English stems at least partly from her former association with Rufioh. Think about it—she's said to have settled with the Lost Weeaboos after leaving East Beforus, so it's quite possible that she learned English from him, and that speaking it brings back memories she'd rather suppress.
Eridan will somehow come back to life and kill Gamzee.Mindfang killed Redglare, Terezi kills Vriska. The Summoner killed Mindfang, Vriska kills Tavros. Orphaner Dualscar killed The Dolorosa, Kanaya kills Eridan. Who killed Orphaner Dualscar? The GHB did. So Eridan will kill Gamzee.
