... Ah, right. My mistake.

The problem is, we don't know what "mistake" they were talking about, and by who.

Grim notes in Grim Tales that there was a traitor. The traitor is implied to be Mandy, but we don't actually see how or what she did.

Whatever it was, it may or may not come up in Doujinshi.

Although... I'm wrong anyway, since Blossom is shown as an adult in Grim Tales. This moment just seems important since Vicar saw it as important enough to bring Grim's attention to it.

Apparently, since we're seeing it this way, it already happened, inflicting some sort of "bad future". That or Vicar and the Celestials, whoever they are, "foresaw" it. My first guess was that this event is the divergence that the Grim Tales timeline spins off from.

Between the panty shots and the lolicon... I'm just not sure what to make of this series anymore. Doujinshi changed during/after the Mandark arc I think.[down] Grim Tales stopped being fun for me when Mimi's arc started.

Five or six years ago, the drawings were astounding. "OMG Bleedman is the shit!". "OMG, Billy & Mandy and Spawn and and Halloween Town and Danny Phantom and Powerpuff Girls, I love it!"

Now I'm like... "so that's still happening. That thing with Mimi never stopped being a thing, huh?"

I have no clue where this series is headed, what it's doing, or where it was going anymore. I just check in every three to four months to see how Minnie's doing, to see if there's any elaboration on what the f-ck is happening happened to Nergal, and to watch Mandy be all queen bitch of the universe. I think Minnie's outfit is the one from Afterbirth. God knows what happened to that.

Are Jr. and Minnie going to get another half sibling who has Santa as their dad?

Maybe, maybe not. Does it matter?

... Come to think of it, why is Mandy always scowling, even when she's seducing people? You'd think that she'd at least show an I-Am-Being-Very-Evil-And-Proud-of-It smirk, or something. (I'm not familiar with the cartoon series, to be honest.)

I wasn't surprised at her topping Him in the list, to be clear. I was referring to what happened at the end.

... I don't quite get the why here. She's pretty much just a mortal woman — OK, technically she's immortal, but otherwise she is a biologically normal woman with no superpowers whatsoever.

[up] The reason why Mandy smiles is a bad thing is two points:

  1. Most of her smiles are Slasher Smiles. So, she's gonna do something incredibly bad to you.

  2. If she attempts to genuinely smile (which is difficult for her), then the universe will explode.

OK, but that leaves the question of why she doesn't do a not-genuinely-happy-except-in-an-genuinely-Evil-sense smile in any of those instances that I mentioned. What, her seducing Santa is not an Evil/Bad thing to do?

... And can someone direct me to where I can find a pic or video of this "Mandy smiles out of genuine, non-evil happiness, and the universe explodes in response"? Youtube apparently lacks it.

Okay, it wasn't a natural smile (it was for a beauty pageant Mandy wanted to win), but here it is (with not very good quality):

Well, natural or not, it is logical that it had to be a not-Evil-at-all smile since it's for winning a beauty contest (unless the standards of beauty used in it say otherwise). But whoah, that was cataclysmic.

That said, the following video that I've found shows that she does have natural smiles that don't result in Divide by Zero — ones that could've been quite fitting for several occasions in the webcomic.

So I'm thinking this is before they first met face to face? Which would explain why Mimi spontaneously jumped Chi's bones.

Possibly. Never pegged Chi as an Idol Singer, though.

Are you sure it Skull Tech? I thought it was just Skulker.

Remember, this is the timeline where Danny sealed Dan in the Fenton Thermos.

Here's a link.

Skulker has always been a robot body piloted by a small ghost.

And another link.

So, Mandy just wrecked Santa Claus.

Chi is a pop idol.

And I think that the person Skulker is holding up is Father from Kids Next Door.

A war in the underworld, with Ghosts and Aku? Dang it. It always feels like there's a big plot in the making and then they just dodge the subject. Doubtless this is just a spoiler for a later plot, but this part's going to focus on how Chi and Mimi meet.

EDIT: And so it finally happened.
