I was rewatching Wilbur's last Dream smp stream and it kinda got me thinking on, like, what would need to happen for Ranboo to finally grow a spine?
There has been one instance before where he did bring forward his beliefs post-Community House scene, but he hasn't really done much to uphold them when he was required to actually take a stand.
And, like, while we all know that the griefing of George's house wasn't actually the reason why Tommy was exiled (that being Dream's obsession with him), the characters in-universe don't seem to realize that. It's possible that Wilbur figured it out since he did comment on it before to Tommy, but no one else actually seems to have realized that.
And the reason why I'm bringing it up is that the finale scene of the last stream was pretty damn reminiscent of that. Someone new that he'd barely interacted with before strung Ranboo along in a new escapade where they're bothering someone powerful. It's more serious this time and there is more intent behind it, but it's similar enough.
And it got me thinking because... he may be spineless, but he does remember what happened last time. He does know that doing something similar last time seemed to bear pretty damn bad consequences, so wouldn't the fear of those consequences kinda outweigh the possibility of being disliked by Wilbur?
Except it doesn't. Because last time Ranboo didn't face any consequences. Tommy did. Same with the Butcher Army, Ranboo didn't face any consequences, L'Manburg did. Or for Ranboo's betrayal of L'Manburg, Ranboo didn't face any consequences, Tubbo's and Quackity's relationship got more strained. Or Ranboo working with Dream, he didn't face any consequences, those he hurt as a consequence of him helping Dream did.
So what I'm getting at here is that I can't wait for Ranboo's attitude to bite him in the ass, because at this point he's basically like Sam as a character. Either he gets direct consequences or nothing is ever gonna change and he'll just stay spineless.
hey guys, "tommy is awesome" was about the only thing c!ranboo said with full confidence to c!wilbur. have a great day!
New ranmail from Mr. Boo!
Merch teaser *heavy breathing*
i had a dream where i met ranboo but within that dream i was also going to prom but within that dream my mother was seriously ill in the hospital so i’m not actually sure how to feel about all of it
Ranboo's updated stream title!
ranboo bringing tubbo home
techno: why did you bring the government here
ranboo: my husband?
techno: your married to the government?
ranboo: well my husband is a terrorist so he would be a very bad government
techno: fair point
[START ID] Ranboo (Sent at 21:29 GMT+8): Streaming today btw. Should be a longer stream. Will be doing merch teaser for subgoal as well. I got more photos >:) [END ID]
Hand cramps ,,
c!ranboo does swear but it’s always in ender so no one can understand him. they think it’s like a vocal stim when he randomly grunts throughout conversation
Ok but if your villain syndicate isn’t team rocket-like in how they conduct themselves is it really the syndicate ?
The best part about chat being some sort of creature that follows the dsmp characters is the visual of randomly seeing Tubbo talking to a...pond? And if you get a bit closer you can hear him talk about making nukes and somehow the creatures in the pond look like they're actually listening to him.
or Tommy casually walking around and occasionally flipping off the several racoons that won't stop following him or climbing on him. Sometimes when one gets too annoying he picks them by the scruff of their neck and scolds them like they're an actual person.
or seeing Foolish already finish with another grand build of his but then at the very corner of your eye you can see a bunch of doozers with little construction hats trying to lift one gold block while Foolish just watches and encourages them
Or walking to a flower field and seeing Ranboo just chilling but then a swarm of purple particles surround him and if you squint your eyes you can see the particles somehow making small braids on his hair
Ranboo the genderman in monster Prom/camp (?) Style
Well I tried to replicate the art style :')
Stuck in there
the event being delayed because wisp got locked out of his house + antfrost and 5up also logging out to install optifine so at some point scott was the only one in his team
seeing "fruitberries was burned to death while fighting fruitberries" as the first death in survival games with no context to what happened
if I had a nickel for every time joel smallishbeans spilled water on and broke his keyboard midway through mcc so he had to steal someone else's, i would have two nickels which isn't a lot but it's weird that it happened twice
if i had a nickel for every time one of grian's teammates had irl issues that caused them to have to be replaced, i would have two nickels and that is very concerning
hbomb stepping in for pete and then hole in the wall gets picked as the next game. perfect timing <3
the captain's 3rd place curse AND wilbur's technical difficulties curse ending as soon as ranboo is let into mcc
red rabbits (jokingly) pointing their crossbows towards pink and dream messaging wilbur with "this is a hold up" and then two seconds later they get dunked
prestonplayz coming into the tournament as a new player, saying that he's rusty, admitting that he just came off a plane, only practicing like half an hour before it starts and STILL placing 12th with only a 15 point difference between him and 10th
noxite leaving halfway through the admin stream to pick up his groceries because he forgot that it was mcc day when he ordered it
the admins finding out that mcc has more viewers than the olympics and being surprised even though it was literally 5am in tokyo and no one would be watching
feel free to add more
