    Got some sleep, so now I'm on the Manifold grind!

    Stream starting with Jack spending his birthday alone, drinking in his empty hotel is... quite depressing man...

    "I don't think I left this room in 80 days" damn, welcome to the world of depression man...

    He's wearing the L'Manburg uniform as well. Haven't seen that since Tommy's death

    He's gonna tour the smp

    He also keeps having "momentary blindness" (the screen going black) and I'm pretty sure he decided it's canon

    Jack and Shroud one interaction my beloved <3 ("We're the only one on the server, guess that means we gotta become friends" yes, yes you do)

    "It's been quiet without him, you know, Tommy. It's been really quiet. I'll be honest I've actually- there's been very little to do with him gone" man... it really does makes you realize how much Jack was reliant on his semblance of a connection to Tommy (the whole "muse" thing Wilbur mentioned in his own stream seems to apply quite a bit for Jack)

    Ooooh, he's talking about the heist that he, Quackity, Tommy, and Tubbo did! Man... remember the cartel? Good old days...

    Jack just discovered the remanents of the beetroot cult

    And now he's going to the museum. Glad that that museum is getting the attention it deserves

    Mood immediately going down upon entering the final control room as it usually is. Though Jack wasn't actually there for that but, you know, he joined just one day after

    "I miss that part, I miss L'Manburg. This was a lot easier when we all were friends. And, I mean Dream- I mean, there were enemies, sure, but, I don't know, we fought them together. Everyone feels so distant now" I wish c!Phil heard this when talking about his bs on how people are better off now that L'Manburg is gone...

    "This [Manifoldland] was my cut of- cut of the woods. And it was untouched as well until I-" o7

    And now he's going over where Tommy was exiled through the Nether, trying to find the point where he was killed

    *staring into lava* "I don't think I wanna visit this place. I don't think I wanna look at this one. I think I wanna go back. This isn't really where I wanna be" Jack your trauma is showing

    "Since when was Tubbo's house back? Didn't Tommy burn that down? I think? It's what Tubbo told me" One of the times for sure, but wasn't it destroyed the final time by Dream? Do I remember that wrong?

    "Let's go to Fundy's place. I have not seen him in FOR-EVER. I don't even know what he did. I don't even remember what he did after L'Manburg" In all fairness, Fundy also probably doesn't remember...

    Oh yeah, I forgot that Jack was the one who built Fundy's tower. And now it's blown up... man...

    "I don't know if you could tell, but I've been pretty purposeless for the past 80 days"

    "I just wish that someone would have logged on" See, that's why I say that it would honestly be beneficial for Jack more than anyone if he and Tommy mended their relationship. He just really desperately needs a friend...

    "Everything I care about on this server gets blown up or destroyed or taken advantage of or... or they- it betrays me"

    "I know Niki became an anarchist or whatever- at least she's happy. At least she's happy" My rocket duo crumbs for the month...

    Also, Jack noticing that Quackity's business offer fell through, though, to be fair, Las Nevadas is also without customers and still unfinished

    "I've never done anything for me. Anything at all" That's sort of a stretch of course. I mean, he wasn't trying to kill Tommy for someone else. He didn't take over the Hotel for someone else. But I get why it feels that way to him...

    And his new objective is to create a place for himself, that caters solely to himself and where he's the only inhabitant, which will not end well for him because clearly isolation has not worked this far either

    "No one came looking for me"

    Final thoughts under the cut

    I genuinely enjoyed the stream. It feels like he brought up quite a few of the stagnation problems there have been with the server lately and he integrated them well in his own storyline. I do hope that this is gonna go somewhere though. Maybe get integrated with the sort of bigger storyline we got going on? The one revolving around Las Nevadas and Quackity in particular at some point. Because it feels like season 3 so far has just been a bunch of loose threads that never gave us any kind of payoff.

    i think the cards are setting up again for people to do more lore as time rolls around on the dream smp. people coming to terms with their trauma as dates roll past, or we at least see how they're doing.

    the newest Wilbur stream opens up opportunity for both tubbo and ranboo lore stream. also indications of a future tommy lore stream or another Wilbur one. jack manifolds lore stream... so much potential there too.

    am very excited for season 3 as it moves forward

    Okay, I finished the Jack Manifold-stream and I have thoughts™. I don’t know how extensive I will be, I need to get to work soon.

    Anyway, I feel like Jack very succinctly both described and embodied the problems the Dream SMP as a story is facing currently.

    A few weeks ago, I made a video on where the Dream SMP fails right now. To make it brief: The narrative of Season 3 is in desperate need of a Turning Point – something that gives a major tension to the story which will serve as an umbrella under which all the minor tensions can coalesce.

    The lack of a Turning Point is the reason everything feels so disjointed and meandering – all these individual plots just kinda existing without any forward momentum or chance to evolve and resolve. This, of course, finds its roots (partly) in extraneous circumstances – no one is streaming, because they spent their time vlogging about buying a yacht and toppling the North Korean government or something.

    What’s so interesting about Jack’s stream is that he acknowledges that lack of narrative momentum textually and makes it have an impact on his character – c!Jack is just hanging about in an empty hotel, drowning in his loneliness and stagnation – and, if the end of the stream, tries to work that into a new starting point for himself.

    Jack leaves the hotel behind with the intent of introducing a new element to his personal narrative to get it moving – and thus, by extension, the greater narrative. He’s essentially – narratively – cutting his losses. The hotel, as a plot element, isn’t going anywhere. Neither is his detective work, seemingly.

    Starting a fresh arc may seem like the wrong move considering how much unresolved plotlines Season 3 already boasts, but considering the medium this story is told through, it may ultimately prove to be the right decision. In this roleplay-series-hybrid, you cannot wait forever for other characters to come back and resolve your narrative conflicts.

    Of course, even this clever workaround can only get him so far. Ultimately, in the story of the Dream SMP, you’re still somewhat reliant on other characters and other streamers to get your story moving. It is very hard to tell a fulfilling story when there’s no one else you can tell it with.

    This stream was yet another starting point in a long line of starting points for the characters and plots in Season 3.

    Let’s hope that a turning point is coming soon.

    One thing I enjoy is that Jack makes it textual that the server is almost completely deserted and nothing is happening.

    AND tying that into his character conflict. That's great.

    Something that just bothered me during the newest Wilbur's lore stream is how when he was talking with Ranboo about the original L'Manberg members he mentioned Niki and Jack and then ask Ranboo if he knows who the originals are and then when Ranboo mentioned Fundy, you know the guy who definitely joined L'Manberg before Niki and Jack and was the first born in the nation citizen as well as canonical Wilbur's son, and Wilbur just said nah he joined two weeks later. And like correct me if I'm wrong but if you count Niki and Jack Manifold as the original members you have to count Fundy as well? Also I don't remember Wilbur even talking about wanting to check on Fundy? But maybe I just heard something wrong... Ether way can't wait for the family reunion...

    i can't believe we got two painful streams today... we've been begging for lore and they HIT US IN THE FACE WITH A BRICK

    /rp

    anyway jack my fucking beloved you poor soul... we learn that after all this time being gone, he was never actually gone. he was holed up in his hotel, drinking himself into a stupor because he just didn't see the point in doing anything else.

    jack wanted people to check on him. he repeated over and over how no one showed up, no one bothered to come to the hotel and see how he was doing. still, after all this time the only thing jack wants is ACKNOWLEDGEMENT. he just wants people to recognize that he's here, he's a part of the server. all he wanted was for someone to stop by and say "hey where's jack been?"

    but it never happened. he was left alone in the dark with his drinks, and when his 1 year anniversary arrived with no one having checked in on him, he decided he was done with waiting and decided to go out and create a new manifold land

    i just... god i hope one of his friends comes back and he can reconnect with people... i think that's what he needs more than anything else

    I think the revival system/3 lives system on the Dream SMP is really interesting. Because, none of them actually know what happens once their three lives are gone. They have have an idea, if course, but nothing concrete. They can't say with 100% certainty, this will happen, or this won't. Wilbur turned into a ghost and later got resurrected, Schlatt stayed in the afterlife, Tommy got resurrected, and Jack crawled his way out of hell.

    Death isn't a concrete thing on the SMP, and I think that's what makes them fear it. Once your three lives are gone, anything could happen, and anything has happened. You could be brought back or make your own way back out of pure determination and spite.

    They canonically have gods and people that are affiliated with them. If you're lucky, you could get Lady Death or Drista to bring you back. If you beg hard enough or are George, DreamXD could bring you back.

    Death is a fickle and unstable thing on the SMP. It's just another hurdle they need to overcome before they can truly rest. And that's why they fear it. Not because it's the end, but because it isn't. Because it entirely depends on the person, because it's unpredictable. It's unfair at the best of times, and torture at the worst.

    Death isn't the final frontier on the SMP. It's simply a waiting room for bigger challenges.

    “I miss that part. I miss L’Manberg. It was a lot easier when we all were friends. There was Dream- there were enemies, sure but we fought them together. Everyone feels so distant now.” 🤝 “I feel lost without L’Manberg. All my core beliefs, everything, died with it.”
