My theory, simply put, is that Lil’ Cal is Lord English. “Upon [S] Cascade being released, there is a chance that Lord English is the Green Sun itself.” –MSPA Wiki Lord English page It’s easy enough to SAY this isn’t true without having evidence, so I decided to go through and find evidence, after talking it through with my friends.
My suspicions were first piqued during Cascade, when we see this sequence…
At first you would obviously assume that it was Gamzee speaking. However, take another look at the typing quirk. While I first thought that perhaps the spaces were replacing his alternating letters, or something of that like. But if that were the case, the letters should all be uppercase or all be lowercase. It’s a quirk we’ve never seen before. Look again at who else is in the frame with Gamzee.
You cannot tell whose hands are on the keyboard. It could in all likelihood be Cal as Gamzee.
Now to talk about the Cairo Coat. Think about the proportions of the coat. While all the Midnight Crew and the Felt are tiny compared to the coat, we have to keep in mind their size compared to Doc Scratch.
Spades Slick is shorter than Doc Scratch, and Doc scratch is only four feet tall.
If Doc Scratch is the ectobiological ‘son’ of Lil’ Cal his body should be about the same size. Lil’ Cal’s arms and legs are really long compared to Doc Scratch’s, and therefore he would fit in the coat.
Before you go saying NO WAY. Just think about it. Cal has been in the comic since the beginning. He is in the dream world. He is in the Trolls’ session. There is only one Cal, despite being in all these places. I’ll go through and find caps later to add in here.
Also, whenever Cal is present in an event, and someone is summoned to move to another part of the area, there is always something that prompts them to bring Cal with them.
Now recall the virus that was on Sollux’s computer.
But Sollux, even with his vision twofold, does not have the perceptional luxuries of our vision omnipresent.
When executed, the subprogram will summon an indestructible demon into the recently voided universe. This monstrous being with the power to travel through time is inconvenienced very little by his arrival upon THE GREAT UNDOING. He has the entire cadaver of the expired universe to pick apart at his whim. From its birth through its swelling maturity and tapering decay. In a reality he is known to have marked for predation, he will go about assembling followers through various epochs, even going as far as personally establishing the parameters for his future summoning.
Sollux couldn’t know that the virus is essentially a formality. The demon is already here.
Our relations page is a good reference for the “followers” that he’s gathered. Doc Scratch, Bro, Jack, and Gamzee are obviously the closest thing to true followers he has.
