I've been thinking a lot about Noelle's magic in the dark world, especially her snowgrave spell... I've seen a lot of people say her reaction to it seems suspiciously like she maybe has heard of it in some way, and that she's really trying her hardest to convince you she can't do it.
(images have alt text)
I feel like it could be interpreted either way - she genuinely has never heard of it but can tell it can't be anything good, or she knows and really, really doesn't want us to have her unleash that kind of power.
Let's run with the second one for a sec.
I've seen people suggest maybe cast it herself in the past on Dess during the bunker incident (causing her death/disappearance) and maybe blanked it from her memory or held it as her deepest secret, but I wanna propose another idea here.
Monsters supposedly can't use magic in the light world but Noelle is a nerd, and a gamer.
She's not as loud about it as Berdly, but she's a huge fan of the Dragon Blazers series - bringing it up in chapter 1 asking to carry on playing it with Rudy, then following through with that in chapter 2. If you act against the first virovirokun with her and they and Kris explain how fights work, she says this:
Then we have her main attack: Iceshock. In the second hospital visit, Rudy suggests she uses Fireshock in the normal route (only to be dismissed by Noelle because 'the mage already left the party'), while Noelle herself suggests Iceshock in the weird route:
The 'shock' spells seem to be from Dragon Blazers specifically... Her spells are an in-game video game reference, she's just as nerdy in her dark world form as Berdly.
So... Snowgrave. With all this in mind, I don't think it's something she's ever cast, but she recognises the name. And I think it's probably from a Dragon Blazers creepypasta.
(this is one possible thing she can click when acting on popups)
Noelle LOVES scary things, and from this we know she likes unusual and creepy things in video games, so it's not a stretch to assume she's the kinda person who likes to read creepypasta. If Iceshock is already from the series, Snowgrave being from a horror story/video based on the same series wouldn't surprise me at all.
The weird route already has big creepypasta vibes, but for Noelle, it may be a creepypasta come to life... And the reason she likes scary things is knowing she can just turn them off whenever she wants :(
WIP of some redesigns for the ALL characters :D
Some of them their designs didn’t change much at all, like Vianna and Walter’s bc I already liked their designs so I just tweaked them
This also doubles as a height chart for myself 😅 In order from shortest to tallest, it’s: Tilly, Liam, Vianna, Marco, Walter (Marco and Walter are very close in height, Tilly wears boots that makes xem closer to Liam’s height)
should i start tagging stuff as not described
White Bell Peppers slowly ripening to orange!
Tobago Seasoning / Trinidad Pimento Seasoning, a very mild Capsicum Chinense that is much milder than a jalapeno, but has all the tropical flavor of a Habanero. I've got two little cuttings that will hopefully take root in little starter pots! This plant is so covered in densly packed flowers and forming peppers it was hard to find a spot to take a cutting-- I had to pluck off five flowers from each cutting that's only the length of my finger lol.
Just realized I haven't shown off my Pepper plants on here in like. A year.
Behold, the Varigated Jigsaw, the perfect Halloween pepper :)
Closeup of me trying to fight the shark
Me attempting to fight the shark monster, 2 seconds before it threw me across the whole field. I was trying to bite it because I'm usually a werewolf in my dreams.
Wild and Weird, archaeologist.

A little baby praying mantis. I don't know why it was walking like that.
What the hermits look like, according to an AI image generator
Warning: These images are very unsettling and some of them may trigger feelings of dissociation, anxiety, and paranoia.
Some of the images have blood, gore, eyestrain, and distorted faces, body parts, and animals.
This will be split up into multiple parts due to Tumblr image limit. Unfortunately, this isn't ID'd because since most of the images don't look like anything specific, they're very up to interpretation and difficult to explain.
I adjusted and split up some of the hermits' names both so that the ai could read it better, and for more interesting results!
Site I used:
Starting off, this one...doesn't look like much. Personally I think it looks like there's a bunch of blurred out brand logos in the background. Anyways, give it up for "100 DoubdDELo 100" I guess.
"Cub Fan 135"
Another kind of disappointing one, to me. I think it's confused. There Was An Attempt, I suppose. The ones after this get more interesting though :)
"Doctor Monster 77"
Yes, I put doc's full name instead of the shortened "doc m" for more interesting results. And boy, the results sure are interesting. I think he looks like he just told a bad joke and is waiting for everyone to laugh.
Well, it sure is uhh... "ELho"s lab. I think this one's kind of nice, actually. The shape in the upper left looks a bit like a Minecraft tree!
I've got no clue how it got this or what it's going for, but this one is really pretty!
I'm gonna be real with y'all. This one is horrendous. I tried it twice because I HATED what I got the first time and I wanted something more interesting and less horrible, but I basically got the same thing. It seems to be the same person, too. And I don't think it looks like IRL Gem. Who is this person???
"Good Times With Scar"
Or, scar from the lion king if he was drawn by someone who has never seen a lion, I guess. Looks like there might be some glowing, floating text on the right?
Another one that I have no clue where it got this from, but I think it's kinda nice :) it looks like amethyst!
OK, THIS ONE IS FUNKY. I don't know what that critter is but it looks soft and I want to hold and pet it!
I've hit the image limit, so part 2 will be reblogged from this soon!
Reoisa my beloisa…
The deer was in a dream from a while ago. He was really sad but I don't remember why. The rest are just random original designs for fun.
