Hoo boy was it tough keeping a lid on this plot twist let me tell you.
PLOT TWIST, oh my gosh I
love the direction the story is going.
Pretty sure my brain just broke.
I am trying to wrap my head around the possible connection to stridors.
1. possibility that I find unlikely is that all kilm with stridors are spirits. I find this unlikely as even though it is a rare condition I would think that this sort of thing happening would not be to the extent of stridors, though it could be.
2. even though he is a spirit he is still pretty completely physical and the stridors is something that is happening to the physical him. I think this is the most plausible but I have to ask to what extent he is spirit. If he was born into a mortal body then is it something like a soul or essence within the body making it less physical, or is it something more to do with the brain within the body. This will probably be answered to some extent though.
3. I am over thinking this on the very little information I have.
If you have any thoughts/ideas I would like to hear them.
I forgot to put this into my previous post but was something that I was also thinking about. If he was a spirit born into a mortal I was thinking on weather it would be something like a body built around that spirits “consciousness” or weather it was more of a body and then the spirit kind of went into it. The difference that this would cause, in my mind, is that in the first option it would something like a brain formed from the spirit and only be one ten. But, my other thought is, if it was more like the latter then there would already be a brain there and therefore a separate entity with a spirit overlaying that. If it wasn’t something were there was a forceful take over of that brain and it was reshaped to fit the spirit. This would cause there to be two tens, the spirit overlay and the physical brain.
My main curiosity is how this spirit thing has effected the structure of the brain. Or of course I am taking shots in the dark and have no idea what I am saying.
THE ONLY QUESTION IS JUST HOW DELIBERATELY WAS IT PUT UP ON APRIL 1ST
(i figured there was something like this btw)
Dammit, Dammit, Dammit, Dammit
Don’t you do this to me
Don’t YOU do this Avsaroke!
Is this an April Fools joke?
Is this a intentional post on April Fools to make it look like an April Fools joke, but the joke is it isn’t?
Have we gone too far?!
WE MUST GO FURTHER
This is clearly an April Fools Joke disguised as an April Fools joke where the April Fools joke is that it isn’t an April Fools joke, but it really is an April Fools joke, being that it isn’t an April Fools joke. ApriceptionFoolceptionJokeception
ARE THE TWINS PULLING AN APRIL FOOLS JOKE ON HIM
Do they HAVE April Fools?
I mean, they’re very trolly
That’s in the realm of posibilities!!!
But it would make sense and tie in more with the chapter in the Void
When the twins got freaked a bit when Ten said “I guess it’d make sense I’d make you that way”
And why Ten has been able to somewhat see the potential future, like when he looked at Kiva, or when the Twins called him down.
This is a terrible
Terrible day to put this up.
I don’t have enough tables in my house to flip.
And then I remembered to vote.
Ok, either its april fools or he really is going full blown insane. I can believe that the twins may be real, but not the “you’re a spirit” part.
I though he would turn out to be their boss god or whatever reborn.
those taunting smiles the twins give us in the third panel as they open a can worms.
Welp there goes the academy
Gosh, the Twins looks like such nerds with pupils
don’t jump the shark, don’t jump the shark….
I was about to say “WAT…” before I remembered that it’s April 1st. So, I guess like everyone else, Imma wait to see if this is an actual thing or if it’s just a prank (and hopefully the only one for the day).
Let’s see whether this may be April’s Fools or not:
1. I think I remember Avs talking about doing something for today in the last stream
2. As we know from the myth section over at Ixion, the god’s once chose to get a mortal body to regain their powers, but the kept their knowledge of their origin all the time.
3. Totally forgot what I wanted to say here but I had a 3rd point.
1. It is the first (?) plausible explanation for Ten’s spirit’o’vision.
2. “Ten” means “soul” in kahmin (spoiler?)
3. The soul eater was angry “because of what you did”&”this is all your fault” → memory loss?
Not sure about this one:
The twins are constantly playing pranks on him, this could just be another one.
BUT they are mentioning some kind of trial what would imply that there are other spirits involved and they are saying the truth.
BUT, on page 389 the are not so happy about Ten getting a hint that they are real, they seem to have planned just to keep bugging him. So why should there be a trial prepared when they never planned on telling him the truth?
Oh hey, and who would name a page like this “what a twist” if it was genuine?
XD ok I’m not sure whether I should say this or not but if you hit that little “vote” link up there you may be a bit less confused/ more amused!
I fear shenanigans or worse. ye been warned ten.
You want my guess? she changed the bubbles !
altho the ten trials of ten are tenpting.
Why did I even believe that?? xD God, you got me. I was on the stream, when you said you’d do something for April Fools. I was aware the whole day what day it is. I check the comic and my brain just wants to get on the hype train. Maybe I want this to be real..? Could be a cool AU actually!
Happy April Fools, y’all!
Let’s just say this twist is real – and I believe it is – is it just the best coincident that this twist was posted on april 1st? Or is the timing the joke?
I thought stridors made him maybe a bit more open to the spirit world (although I just figured they were god-like aliens… which could still be true) but I would never have guessed that Ten could be a spirit/”spirit-alien”.
To wrap it up: No matter if this is a real twist or not: This is just genius. A twist that you can not really see coming, but you can actually believe – and at the same time strange enough to be a good april’s fools prank.
Something to add: I don’t know if I ever posted on one of your comics, I usually do not post. But your comic/the world of your comic is one of the best thought through I have ever seen.
I was speechless when I first saw your descriptions of their hearing, sexuality, culture and so on. Every question I saw about the world or the species were not only answered, but I had every time the feeling the answer wasn’t made up on the spot. It gives really the feeling that you build an entire universe and tell a story from there, instead of telling a story and making the universe up for it. It is just impressive.
Ditto, Avsaroke has done an amazing job, just the art, but then; O.K. The characters and characterization, but then the depth of the plot, … Fine, but then there is the hints. There are hints everywhere, but they are subtle, and sometimes hidden in plain sight. You know? Like the two reality breaks? Genius! Yeah, one of the two or three top comics on the web.
I remember, back when I saw the “because of what you did” thing with the soul eater, I suspected that whatever he did was done in a past life, but I expected his past life to have been as another mortal being, rather than as some sort of higher spirit being.
I hadn’t actually thought about it being an April fools thing as I checked it late the 31st. I hope its not a prank as I am very intrigued though.
Also, even though I dont read an extreme amount of comic, this one has the most to it lore/world wise and is my favorite.
Yea it updated on the 31st for me
So I was like “dah f**k”
But then I voted and was a bit more convinced it’s a joke.
i think its an in joke, as in the twins have the ultimate prank material in front of them and they just cant let the opportunity pass ! so its THEIR april fools to ten and us by the same way.
This comic just jumped from place 228 to 72 on TWC. This is awesome, even though new readers will start with getting fooled XD
its the beginning of the vote reset, since she updated so close, a lot of frequent readers voted when the other comics werent live yet, so we got a head start, it gives a good indication that 56+ people enjoy this comic regularely 🙂
Sliest April Fools joke ever.
Clearly, he didn’t get his letter! Malachi must have lost it by hunting bugs when he should’ve been delivering!
I just… I just need to lay down for a minute
Still awesome and spasmastically funny. Okay, I may be overstating that second part slightly. But only slightly.
