Are you pondering what I'm pondering?

(Also joke's on you Fade, Hetrea already has 4 natural moons in addition to the Unmoon!)


So I've realized that over the four years DotX has been running, I've answered a ton of questions about where DotX comes from / Mi's evolution as a character / etc, and I'd really like to go back and find all those comments to put together some sort of FAQ!

If anybody ever goes back and reads through DotX again, let me know what pages I've commented walls of text on! It'd be really helpful, but no pressure as I'll do it myself eventually! ^_^

This could end anyway but well at this rate. AoV? Any theories?

I swear, Speedy's going to be putting on the suit and he's gonna say, "Who's gonna be my date then?" and Miles is gonna put his hand on his hip, raise his eyebrow, and say "Me, hon." and he's gonna pull out a pouch of makeup and then he's gonna be super hot, Speedy's gonna feel super weird thinking he's pretty. Did this go through anybody else's head? No? I'm just a weirdo then

Doesn't Speedy need a date then, which can be resolved if Mi calls in back up.

What do you mean? Like in terms of "This," do you mean this scene, this chapter, or this comic? If you mean this scene, then I don't think it's gonna be much of a problem for Speedy to get in with only a suit. It was Gell's plan from the beginning, remember. Also, it's highly possible that Frisky's gonna stay in the ballroom, so all Speedy would have to do is go to the library (If you can't tell, when Frisky said she's never used her library, I got really mad because that meant she has so much stuff she doesn't keep track of it anymore. Like she's just like, "Oh, my parents gave me an entire library filled with rare books, one of them so rare that, if I had only bothered to look in my library, I could probably have fulfilled a great destiny that my parents had planned for me, but who cares? I'm just a spoiled brat who uses her wealth to throw fancy parties with rules that would exclude one or more of the people who she considers her friends, even though she's probably only friends with them because she likes gossip!") and Frisky would never find him. There could be countless hobos living in that library and Frisky would never find out.

@TY/Ty/ty1233456789 (Dude, pick one!)
Sorry, yeah, I didn't think that was going to happen.

That's a really good idea. I'm betting if Speedy decides not to go without the required date, Miles' gonna call in Audrey, which I think is cool because Audrey is one of the better characters, although Danny would have to go too, which won't really be a problem since he's see through. However, I hope she has a dress (or a suit, I guess).
AdvocateofVoid 28th Feb 2017, 8:59 AM edit delete reply
Actually, is Speedy going or is Miles? It's kind of hard to tell, as Miles doesn't trust Fade, and Speedy could go if he had at least a suit, but it doesn't look like he wants to. I understand that Speedy is the only other Mobian with an invitation, but that problem could be fixed if Fade invites Miles, which is as simple as asking him to or even just going in as if Fade invited him as no one, not even Frisky OR Miles, can prove he did or didn't. The other problem is that Miles needs to man the fancy equipment he's set up on the roof, but Speedy or Fade can do that, as both of them can follow instructions. Lastly, if Miles was going, he'd probably bring Chia instead of Audrey, but that's okay because Chia isn't that bad even if she can't solve the demon problem right away.

Actually I think I'll be this from now on, much less confusing
zenpai 28th Feb 2017, 2:24 PM edit delete reply
has Miles seen Goo's necklace? if so, Audrey might wind up being Speedy's date.
AdvocateofVoid 28th Feb 2017, 6:54 PM edit delete reply
Oh, ok, well I do have 20/20 vision, but I can only see so far into the future. Well, I think you're right. Some chapters don't end in happy endings, and I think this is gonna be one of them.

Who is Silver Quill?

Choosing was an excellent choice.

Who know's? It's kinda hard to differentiate between what the readers know and what the characters know. But yeah, that's what I was thinking too.
TheTyGuy 28th Feb 2017, 7:24 PM edit delete reply
@AdvocateofVoid, Whoa, you have 2020 vision! That means you can see 3 years into the future!? I wish I were a psychic!

What are those shadows under Miles' eyes supposed to be? I realize they're from his goggles, but I've never seen something like that before. Just asking
Phate 1st Mar 2017, 7:43 AM edit delete reply
They could just be bags under his eyes from lack of sleep. That or an impression from wearing those googles all the time.

Mi has yet to see Goo's necklace, while the treehouse crew has. Thing is though, Mi hasn't told anyone that they need that necklace to help pudding.

@AoV I can't imagine Mi wanted to leave his post though. Yes Speedy or Fade can follow instructions, but that would be as effective as just Mi working it. Besides Speedy knows more people at the party and it wouldn't be suspicious if he just showed up. While calling Audrey would be a good idea, I don't think Mi knows that the necklace is at the party. I can't imagine that he had a camera set up in Goo's room.
Phate 1st Mar 2017, 7:48 AM edit delete reply
My bad, he had a camera up in Goo's room.
AdvocateofVoid 1st Mar 2017, 7:56 AM edit delete reply
Yeah, I was just saying it would be the most logical choice if someone had to go as Speedy's date. Since Miles is one of the most anti-social characters in the comic (other than Fang), I'm guessing he doesn't know anyone other than Chia and Audrey to do the job. Sure, Chia could go, but I don't think Mi would want that. Besides, I think at this point a lot more people at the ball would know Audrey better than they know Chia (at a character standpoint) and Audrey might even be able to make connections with a few people at the ball (at a plot standpoint).

Whoa! I really would like to say something, but first, can someone else read pages 273-278 (The first page is called "Lemonade") and comment on what they think? This is probably old news, but I still think it could be revived and re-examined.
triforce fandom 1st Mar 2017, 10:16 AM edit delete reply
@AoV; she's a reviewer on YouTube. Hetreagod should have at seen a channel for her.
Phate 1st Mar 2017, 11:22 AM edit delete reply
@AoV Are you perhaps referring to Gell asking Speedy to the ball? If so, I think I know where you're going with this. Because Speedy didn't object to going with Gell. He just didn't want to go period. Which thinking back on now, is very interesting. And, now thinking back to a stream, Gell liked Fade because they were the only two who knew they were in a comic(I know it's not the only reason but it's part of it.). There's a chance she could also like Speedy cause like, they're buds. That and they are sort of in the same boat now of people they like being in relationships.
Phate 1st Mar 2017, 11:23 AM edit delete reply
Speculation of course.
AdvocateofVoid 1st Mar 2017, 12:25 PM edit delete reply
I'm referring to Gells reactions to the things Speedy was saying, like Gell Shouting, "I'M ALWAYS THIS COLOR," when Speedy asks, "I'm sorry... Are you blushing?" The most curious part is that Gell actually did become a little more vibrant right before Speedy asked.
TheTyGuy 1st Mar 2017, 2:14 PM edit delete reply
Guys, the reason Gell asked Speedy to the ball is because she wanted him to be more sociable. Ever since Pudding got a boyfriend he's been getting more and more distant. The only reason it would seem as though she liked him is because she understands how he feels, what with Fade and everything. Gell definitely doesn't feel romantic toward anybody but Fade, but that doesn't mean she can't be a good friend and feel concerned. Although I can totally see them together in the future.
