WMG/Sluggy Freelance. Blatant spoilers unmarked.
The denizens of the Dimension of Lame were hit with a bioweapon that would make them passiveEither that, or they were subjected to a more successful experiment than the one that made the Reavers. They have 20th century technology and at least one missile, and most of the technology they had must have been developed in war. Also, they could not have developed so much by just eating rice cakes.
Bun-bun is originally from Domain.Somehow, he got trapped in the Sluggy universe, which also caused him to become an ordinary rabbit rather than his original anthropomorphic form. Santa was somehow responsible for this, hence their conflict.
Bun-bun is related to the savage killer rabbit from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.But I doubt the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch would do anything except piss him off.
Bun-bun was the savage killer rabbit from ''Monty Python and the Holy Grail.The Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch was the first Deus Ex Ova, and Brother Maynard was Santa Claus in disguise. It didn't kill Bun-Bun, it just banished him to Timeless Space.
Zoe is crazyEvery time her meds start to work, she 'moves away'. But when things go weird, she moves back. Maybe she gets used to the meds, forgets to take them, suffers another breakdown...lets face it, Torg and Riff aren't safe to be around.
Everyone is crazy.Torg and Riff are in madhouse, and loving every minute of it. Torg was institutionalized when he ordered a stuffed rabbit on eBay and got Black Hat Man's mountain lion (he got a real stuffed rabbit toy later). Riff became ill from gases or pain resulting in a failed experiment. Gwynn got into the arcane a little too enthusiastically. Sam the Man was an inmate who thought he was a vampire, then killed himself trying to prove it. Kiki was Sam's stuffed animal, Zoe is a recurring visitor, Aylee may be a product of their collective imaginations or a want-to-be Hannibal Lector/alien Otherkin that was taught to eat potatoes in place of people. Dr. Schlock is a corrupt or ineffective psychiatrist (or a clown who makes baloon animals), Kzk is an orderly with a foreign name, and Oasis is a Stalker with a Crush on Torg, very violent and prone to nudity, and with her own made-up backstory that introdces the whole Kusari thing. Zoe wants Torg to stay away from Oasis because it's obvious she's just faking out the psychiatrists that she's safe in order to get back with Torg, and everyone else is a hospital employee or part of their collective delusions and stories they made up based on television (most early arcs), fairy tales (the alt-worlds), and the Harry Potter movies (kind of obvious there).
Sasha is KusariThey were both introduced roughly around the same time, and even went on hiatus around the same time. But Kusari appears as an oppostie to Oasis and calls her sister, Oasis and Sasha have met once and Sasha gave her a message that drove Oasis insane in her next incarnation. It was also revealed recently by Schlocke that Kusari does indeed have had interactions with the Sluggy gang.
Sasha and Kada are somehow connectedSasha and Kada look the same (but that might just be the art), and both have some skill with transdimensional technology. Sasha runs off well before Bun-Bun returns from Timeless Space, so he would not have had a reason to comment on the similarity. Forum guessing includes Sasha being Kada's mother, Kada being Sasha's mother, and them both being the same person.
Kada and Calix are Torg's parentsOnly people and a situation that weird could produce Torg, who manages to be well-adjusted and off his rocker at the same time. Plus it would give the Oceans Unmoving storyline a bigger tie into the main plot, which would be no bad thing.
Kada is both Sasha's descendant and Torg's ancestorJust because.
12/06/09 pretty much confirms that Oasis is a god-damned Phoenix. That probably makes her "sister" Kusari a Dragon, with the two tied together by the old Dragon and the Phoenix fairy tale.Oasis can control fire. She doesn't stay dead. Without the first fundamental piece of information, the guess never would have happened, although an Archive Trawl reveals that a lot of Oasis's deaths did involve fire directly, or very near to the point of death. I wouldn't be surprised if it is all of them. Chapter 50: Phoenix Rising was also another great big hint from nearly three years ago. This just proves the next WMG entry.
Oasis's dead body must be burned before she can be revived.Because she's a Phoenix.
Pete has the comic planned about a decade in advance.Related to the above. The first time Oasis seemed to die by fire was on October 17th, 1999. To repeat, the first clue about her identity was put in plain sight in nineteen ninety nine, a god-damned decade ago. Even failing that speculation, that event was still tied to the later revelation (at least in retrospect). Somewhat related to this WMG, Pete plans everything so far in advance because if he tried to pack in all of the awesomeness he's got planned over any less of a timeframe, the Crowning Moment Of Awesome after Crowning Moment Of Awesome would wear us down until nothing seemed awesome or special any longer.
Reakk was created with the demon spear CalimarExplains his general incompetence and the fact that he wasn't used to being a demon in the That Which Redeems flashbacks.
Dimension of Lame Torg was really put into the Dimension of Pain, and hit with the demon spear Calimar to become ReakkSame basic model, same incompetence as Torg. And if Real Riff blasted Torg into Dimension of Pain, whats to say Lame Riff didn't do the same thing?
Reakk is in charge of the Fate SpidersIt makes total sense, right?
Zoe and Riff aren't deadWe didn't see the bodies! We don't know the rules of the necklace! ...or we just don't trust Pete to not turn it around five or ten years down the road.
Sluggy Freelance is ending soonPete even hinted at this himself. Most of the "dominoes" have fallen, although a few still are. Zoe and Riff are in fact dead, and the rest of the cast is going to die soon too. Torg will die last, because he's the closest thing the strip has to a main character by now. Expect the comic to end on the next anniversary day...
Riff IS deadAnd has became an angel. However he fell from grace quickly, and can known be found in the webcomic School Bites.
Zoe was captured and healed by the same people that captured Riff, but isn't being drugged.They are interrogating her on how and from where she and Riff got there. Riff's too dangerous to leave undrugged, but Zoe's imprisoned (or simply comatose.
Torg's suppressed memories are also fake.The psychiatrist could be screwing with his head and trying to convince Torg that the original events were a delusion, something far different had happened from the suppressed memories or the events originally shown... Heck, Zoe's involvement could have been nonexistent and it was Oasis' body that Riff was holding. If the cursed necklace wouldn't be ripped out by mere existence displacement, there are so many different things that could have happened now that we know the minimum time since Torg started being an Unreliable Narrator to leave Zoe alive but incommunicado.
His Masterness is Alt-Alt-Alt(-Alt?)-Riff.
The Riff and Zoe that were attacked by the 4U guards aren't Riff-Prime and Zoe-Prime.They were also attacked by (an) Oasis, but that doesn't mean it's the Oasis, and could be a completely different project. Riff-Prime and Zoe-Prime are still lost, but currently-in-4Universe-Riff-and-Zoe (or just currently-in-4Universe-Riff, if his respective Zoe really was killed) will be important only in the future, when their actions cross over with other characters (possibly in the main dimension, possibly by running into Riff- and/or Zoe-Prime in the 4Uinverse).
Sam will be the oldest surviving vampire and establish the respected and feared Sam Cirkail Mamajama.Sam is an idiot, and since just about everybody can see it vampire hunters won't bother to go after him. At the same time, he has just enough intelligence and dumb luck that he's quite good at survival.
4U City is in the futureOasis' fire blast caused the D.F.A to malfunction, sending Riff to a future where Hereti Corp has taken over.
All universes with life in them are a result of the Clotho Legacy.So as not to torture you with a link to the documentaries of Doctor Viennason, it's the one were enough people gather together in Timeless Space to activate a self-powered time bubble (since a time line composed of two people has more strength than two individual timelines). Since Timeless Space can be entered earlier than it was left, it's possible that every universe started out timeless before somebody arrived. People seem to arrive in Timeless Space when there are other people who have time, but even if they didn't, it would take only a bubble large enough to continue expanding as living beings created more time than they spent to fill any world, let alone a world new enough that it only contained a small ball of water surrounding the head of Father Time's brother. Eventually, as people discovered travel through outer space and between worlds and into Timeless Space, they would spread organic matter and sentient beings through their own universe and others, and their descendants would one day discover their own universe before anyone existed there.
The Riff from the universe where everyone had been replaced with butterflies will be integral to the completion of the comic.
Zoe's Fate Worse than Death in the current arc was not initially planned out by Pete Abrams.She was originally going to have died instantly. But so many people complained about her death and/or wanted he to be brought back that Abrams changed his plans and gave them what they wanted. While making it so horrible that it suddenly seems like a quick death would have been far better.
Pete Abrams is going to kill off another popular main character, but this time it'll be one with a much larger fanbase.In what I have come to deem the Aeris Effect, (Or 'Aerith Effect') an author or writer makes a character so likeable that readers/players/viewers will instantly cling to him/her. And then, just when the dramatic timing is right, they kill the character off for emotional value. This is so common that I know it already has its own trope, under another name. When Abrams does drama, he goes all out, as shown with Zoe's fate. Therefore, it's possible that he may kill off another of the main cast. Torg is safe, as he has Plot Armor thanks to the prophecy, and I doubt he'd kill off Riff. Bun-Bun and Kiki are unlikely to be used to this effect as well. However, Sam and Sasha are well-liked enough to the point that their deaths would have a HUGE effect on the fanbase. Sasha in particular is in danger, as she has been getting more and more attention and characterization in the strips that she appears in lately. Also in danger of this treatment is the newly introduced Izzy.
Sasha is Torg's sister.Seriously, this is one of the most common WMGs in the fanbase. I had to throw it out there.
The 'demons' of the Dimension of Pain are not really demons.Almost every dimension so far had an equivalent of the main cast, except for this one. Or so it would seem. Nofun labs have an invention that looks and works exactly like the Demon spear that created the 'demons'. What if the demons of Do P are actually mutants created by Nofun Labs. This may also help explain why Lord Horribus was so obsessed with Torg: He IS Torg.
Minion Master is Mark Zuckerberg, or a Sluggy-universe Expy.
There is no time stream in Timeless Space because its governor, Uncle Time, is a slacker.Not the other way around, as implied in the comic and some places on this very site.
Dr. Crabtree was working for Hereti CorpDoesn't this look an awful lot like Chen? It would also explain Operation Ferret Butt and how Bun Bun met General Mayhem who is associated with Killum.
His Masterness has something to do with K'Z'K.K'Z'K stole people's souls, leaving them in comas. In 4U City, citizens are drugged to the gills and spend most of their time just lying there. Maybe it's just me, but there might be something there...
The prime universe is doomed to turn into 4U city, but worse, due to the meddling of the Fate Spiders
Shit's about to get wierd
Oasis will end up running into Blank!Zoe.
Gwynn will fix Blank!ZoeWhat technology can't fix, maybe magic can. Recall that Gwynn herself was once in more or less the same state after K'Z'K's initial disappearance as well.
Dr. Steve was researching medical nanites
Dimension of Pain is the future of the prime world, and the Dimension of Sham-Pain is the future of the Dimension of Lame
Sir John Jacobson from Timeless Space...IS ACTUALLY FROG! No, stay with me on this one.
Oceans Unmoving/Timeless Space world is the future of 4U City/Original Dimension if Riff/Schlock doesn't fix the Portal abuse..ok bear with me; 1) Alt Riff/4U Riff says he saw that the portal abuse would cause the world to break/end.. 2) we see in Oceans Unmoving/ Timeless Space that there are bits and pieces of a world, and an ocean that is not moving.. 3) after DFA portal abuse, 4U got rain, lots of rain, in current arc, we see that HC's preemptive strike at Crushestro caused rain to show up, after DFA'ing everything in existence at that location
Riff will make Timeless Space DFA guns for CrushestroHe knows that abuse of the DFA will destroy the universe but that Hereti-Corp has too big an advantage, so he will create a version that's safe for the universe for the alliance to use.
So Bun-Bun's a godWould explain how he kicked the asses of so many supernatural creatures. Though he's apparently not invincible if his fight with Oasis is any indication. I'm guessing that he lost all his followers (and most of his power) with Mohkadun, so he tried going after the holidays but lost and ended up in Timeless Space. Once in Timeless Space he was more preoccupied with escaping than getting new followers (if the short life expectancies of his crews are any indication), and the first time he escaped he lost his memory of being the God of Power.
Gods of Mohkadun became Holiday Gods and similar?we know there is God of Time in Mohkadun; presumably he became Father Time; while the powers of the other Gods went over to the Holiday Gods? (Terry Pratchett; Old Gods do New Jobs) Perhaps it stands that after the first Deus Ex Ovum; Bun-Bun loses his memory of being the God of Power; and his power is lost until he kills the Easter Bunny by right of Caste?
Gwynn/Fake Queen Siphaina becomes one with the Book of E-ville in Mohkadunthe symbol she wears on her shawl; that of the Queen, just so happens to be the same symbol as the one shown for the Lady Gwynn of the Book in Alt-Dimensions and Dimension of Lame; and in The Proof (Semi-canon yes...)
"The god of power" is Bun-bun's future, not pastNot more likely than not, but it's a possibility. It seems pretty obvious he'd not remember it due to the amnesia — although this would, it seems, be much before even the time of the earlier Deus Ex Ovum — but the less obvious twist would be for him to travel back in time and adopt the job. He wouldn't even need any special powers to fake it, but on the other hand, the Krig seems to have been promoted from a mortal too. Update: Yes, several of the gods are promoted mortals, Sluggy (Bun-bun(?)) included.
this is going to be the first time Bun Bun uses Deus Ex Ovumbear with me.. in the Holiday Wars; Mrs Claus tell Baphomet that its not the first time Bun Bun has used the DEUS EX OVUM; and that he is older than he looks.... perhaps this is how Bun Bun came into the Oceans Unmoving universe the first time, after messing with K'Z'K/Kozaoku? in Oceans Unmoving, Bun Bun looks for Uncle Time... I wonder if Bun Bun;s feud with Santa started in this time as well?
Kusari's ressurection abilities are so advanced that she clones herself and one of those clones is Sasha.Because it makes sense.
We are headed to a possible conclusion!-Pete is bringing back old old old references, like Rithuly, and Satan/Satin... we also see that the armor is reminiscent of the armor used by Torg when he went back in time - the box is in fact the book of E-ville's predecessor -the diamond symbol on Symachus, God of Justice, is going to be very very very important pretty soon for Gwynn.
Riff's dad is in fact the reincarnation of Symachus, the God of Justice-Blood compass in last storyline, used Symachus' blood. -the box that can only be opened by Symachus' blood. -both are in Riff's dad's possession. -Blood compass points to Riff.
Oasis is a Ninja-Pyro-Zombie-RobotYes, you read that right. Recognizing the young pyrokinetic girl's potential as a living bioweapon, Orsintal Labs Initiated Project Orsintal Assassination Serial Incarnation System, transforming the little girl into an Orsintal-voodoo-style zombie, while infusing her with Dr. Crabtree's nanites, mitigating a zombie's typical hunger for brains and penchant for rotting, all while making her nigh-indestructable.
Dr. Lorna is the leader of the Cult of K'Z'KShe is a woman....
Basphomy is KusariThey seem so similar and considering the sisters motif with Oasis it becomes a huge hint that Kusari and Oasis are Basphomy and Rana respectively.
