He was in a furious rage after CD killed Jade with all that shaving cream explosive!
It could be! I don’t think it’s been explicitly said to be that ring, but they look the same so it’s definitely possible.
Oh hey! A helpful link! Thanks anon.
They both exist, just at different times- the appearifier is somehow able to circumvent the Scratch to connect the two universes.
The troll’s game had already been scratched (by the Alpha trolls) waaaay back when.
You’re confusing a scratch of a game session with the destruction of a universe. At the same time as the Tumor went off (creating the Green Sun), Spades Slick killed Sn0wman, thus destroying the trolls’ universe, the Red Miles destroyed the kid’s universe, and the kids’ game session was scratched by John, triggering a reset. All unrelated events occurring at the same time due to the principle of circumstantial simultaneity.
As far as I know it is totally random? Usually the alpha release comes before the beta, so in Jane’s case since she was going to be one of the very first to get it through her Crocker connections it makes sense that she would get the alpha and not the beta.
(Also who the heck linked this blog I am getting so many messages I haven’t even updated in months???)
Red Miles is a type of attack specific to the wearer of the Queen’s Ring. In the case of Jack Noir, we see him use it on the Battlefield and on Bilious Slick/the human universe. Its effects are to create wide-ranging damage using the eponymous “red miles”, and it wreaks havoc on the thrice-prototyped Battlefield and succeeds in destroying the red/human universe completely during Cascade.
Mom’s DNA and Bro’s DNA were combined by John in the ectobiology lab to produce Rose and Dave, you are correct. They never had intercourse, and probably never met in person or knew each other in the Beta universe.
They are kid versions living in an alternate universe. Roxy, Dirk, Jane, and Jake are not the same people as Mom, Bro, Grandpa, and Nanna.
The trolls that we know and love are the players of a post-scratch session, coming from a universe that is designated A2.
The players of the pre-scratch session, hailing from universe A1, were the pre-scratch versions of the ancestors of the A2 players.
The first round of players (Meenah, Aranea, etc) couldn’t finish their game, so they made a deal with Echidna to scratch their session. In the second round of the game, the meteors of the trolls who played the A1 game were swapped and the players became the ancestors (Condesce, Mindfang, etc). The trolls who had been the ancestors of the A1 trolls became the A2 players, aka Feferi, Vriska, and the rest of them.
