    I liked Davesprite in the flash. He looked really puzzled by Jade's actions.

    Anyway, there's one thing that bothered me about the flash:
    I felt that there was far too much Flash character posing going on. It just felt incredibly low-quality, because Hussie is not a professional animator. I felt he should've tried to play to his strengths - namely, static images - better.

    The issue is that a lot of the animation is essentially... flat. Limbs rotating around joints at a constant rate, with none of the detail that makes an animation feel real. So, the animated bits make the characters seem even less lifelike. And I recognize that doing a high-quality animation requires a LOT of work, so I'm not saying "OH MY GAWD HUSSIE YOU OWE US MORE", but that it might have looked better with either more still bits, or more restricted viewpoints.

    I dunno, I'm not an animator either, I just know that a lot of it really screamed "FLASH ANIMATION" to me.

    Still catching up with this thread but, yes, agreed, and thank you. I couldn't quite place what felt off with Jade's scenes, but that's exactly what it was.

    (That's not to say it wasn't awesome, regardless.)

    Not.... quite. All the trolls fled to the Green Sun to join Aradia, Dave, Rose, and Sollux. John and Jade broke the 4th wall into another universe.

    Yes, the Alternia universe was destroyed.

    Meanwhile, the Scratch seemed to mean the end of the Kids' universe, as well.

    The end of both universes is what enabled the tumor, which seemed to be a sort of cosmic paradox cloning machine, to create paradox duplicates of both universes, and use the combined matter to make The Green Sun.

    I believe someone pointed out that Doc Scratch had mentioned that the green sun's mass was actually equal to the combined mass of both universes. We just didn't know until now that it was literally made from them both.

    I found Jade's dog ears to be an amusing fake-out. The first thing I thought was "Is Jade a Troll?!!" when I saw the horn-hole button on her hood. Then the furry reality was revealed!

    Dave and Jade had sprites to take them to god-tier just like Aradia did, but what about Rose? I'm guessing the second path to god-tier will be revealed soon.

    Also, Miss 8-ball has slightly greenish blue blood. I'm looking forward to the explanation of this.

    Jack's RED MILES destroy the Kids' universe - he's attacking the instance of Billious Slick that exists in the Troll's Incipishere

    The Scratch only resets the game session. Presumably, this will mean a new instance of the Kids' universe.

    The last two sentences are right, I believe.

    ?

    The Dave and Rose that ascended were both the dream versions of themselves from the alpha timeline. Both of them and Aradia used the "second path" to god tier - via their dream selves being destroyed on their quest beds on Derse's moon.

    so they're ectobiologizing two universes together to make... a third?

    It's kinda weird. It seems alchemizing universes needs dead or dying universes. Different kind of ghost slime I guess. It makes sense when you remember that the Green Sun is about twice the mass of the kids universe, hinting that it was made with two universes.
    Going by the frog-breeding logic

    you have to use dying universes in ectobiology. Otherwise, they'd be able to just teleport their universes to the point of the tumor. Using universes that are doomed means that they can harvest paradox slime from them.
    what colour is paradox slime
    donotwantfringeolivia.jpg
    Son of a gun.

    In addition
    Green is color that represents this Act 6.

    And in [ S] Seer: Descend (not to toot my own horn, but: http://forums.penny-arcade.com/discussion/comment/20902854#Comment_20902854), Rose goes through the 4 red curtains, 1 blue one, another red one, and then a teleportalizer on a beat mesa.

    After that, there is a corridor with 6 green curtains and the last one is closed.

    This is by far the most interesting EOA-spawned conversation yet in here. I didn't even consider...ahhh, that's crazy. So cool.

    Yeah, it wasn't the static art that I found jarring after all. I internally retracted that statement when I agreed with Garthor higher up on this page about the flash motion. Especially the movement of the eyes.

    Sorry, Lexxy...wherever you are.

    There were an 8-balls, a pop-o-matic hammer, and blue blood, so she was gone, but certainly not forgotten. Except possibly by someone with a bad memory. Siegmund Freud theorized that stressful memories can be repressed to preserve sanity.

    I think Sn0wman was the god-frog of the trolls universe. She bled the blood of her universe and you could see galaxies in her heart. Her star theme in her clothes is similar to the one the frog had. It also provides an interesting dualism: As a queen she could not bear wearing the ring prototyped with a frog, but in the end she became it. It explains her power over space in that universe and why nobody wanted to kill her.

    Of course Jade wasn't killed by a tornado, unless you count the carelessness of her tornado-wielding friend with respect to his supply of shaving cream.
