Dream and Tommy vibing to the disks
With all respect to cc!Philza, I really don’t like his headcanon justification for the retcon he provided on stream today - that “c!Wilbur as a child had a tendency to blow things he made up, and c!Philza simply recognised that behaviour.”
Because.. I dunno. It feels quite out of character for early c!Wilbur, who was quite pacifistic. It feels like a blend of the “c!Wilbur was always evil” and “c!Wilbur only ever saw L'Manberg as a toy” takes that I bloody despise.
Also, it does beg the question of why the hell c!Philza would let his presumably very young son play with explosives. I seriously doubt such behaviour would have actually been noteworthy if they were pretend explosions..?
It all feels just a bit wrong to me. After all, c!Wilbur’s link to explosives (and explosions in general) as we have actually seen it in canon is very blatantly reminiscent of self-harm and suicide, and not of some kind of sick innate excitement for destruction.
Wilbur didn’t blow up L'Manberg because of a childhood love of TNT, or some love of chaos, he did so to wipe any trace of himself (and his failed nation) off the server. And I guess that’s why I hate this headcanon.
okay but if we’re acknowledging that other cc’s shouldn’t have a final say on another person’s character, can we apply that to c!dream?
because cc!dream has said that his character’s motivation is, in fact, wanting a peaceful and united server. so that’s a fact, right?
and things like c!eret being manipulated by c!dream is something that was not confirmed by cc!dream so that’s not a fact, right?
i’m saying this because people are completely willing to accept whatever is said about c!dream and deny what cc!dream has said about his character and i’m going to be honest, it’s hypocritical.
“the skeppy cage is a very funny concept” and “the skeppy cage is a horrifying concept that shows the depths of c!dream’s corruption and disregard of c!skeppy’s humanity and should be treated as such” are concepts that can and should coexist
I think one of my favorite underrated moments is when Foolish told Quackity that Slime has been kidnapped and Quackity went dead-serious and was ready to fuck up whoever had taken his friend… but then when Foolish said it was Tommy who took him Quackity just immediately went all like “Oh, okay that’s fine let the boys have fun ^_^” and went on his c!Tommy defender arc.
