It's mentioned on page 572 that it clasps and unclasps because it's especially made for her. She doesn't pull it over her head or anything.

It is a proven fact that emotional harm inflicted to a reader when a character suffers is greater when the character is cute.

Glad to see that Pozzol remains the best Vast Error character ever since his first reveal. Good update.

To clarify, what makes Pozzol so legendary is that while other antagonists sit and wait and talk about their keikakus, Pozzol through every interaction we've seen from him has just DONE what he plans, its thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable to see a troll who just knows what they want, works to achieve it and loves the journey the entire way.

Like, look at this smile, this is the face of an absolute gigachad who KNOWS hes hot shit and I personally cant wait for him to get his shit kicked in. Another fact is how he has lots of history with already established characters as a big and important threat, be it forcefully keeping Taz in captivity or absolutely DEMOLISHING Secily in the 1v1 just straight DESTROYING HER(pic below related is what went down for people who didn't play Necrons route.) Pozzol is a threat and a DAMN GOOD ONE at that. Very excited to see more of him.

I have been obsessively combing through the entirety of the Vast Error tumblr to get as many scraps of lore as I can and this is by far my favorite ask AND answer.

POZZOL GANG will triumph over the weak and decadent heathens left on this dying rock. It's an inevitability. :cal:

The clear love and care that the author seems to put into this weird troll comic that is shown through their detailed and concise replies to criticism without any form of strawmanning or underhanded tactics whatsoever have taught me that there is probably value in this, and so I will begin reading it.
Please do. It's one of the best currently running fanventures on MSPAFan along with Cool And New Webcomic as well as Alternate Mewniverse and Karkat Goes to a Convention

I see this thread's a bit dead, so here's my pitch on some of these designs. Tell me what you think! :chummy:

Yes, there are two separate explanations about Repitonian troll quadrants, in fact.

Okay, that last post was just joking about, this one's serious. For the last... 3 days or so, I've reread all of Vast Error, paying deeper attention to details and mashing them with insights I already had, and I've gotten a deeper understanding of it, although many of my points previously stated (art style, 50000 people, spoilers, et cetera) still remain. But, my outlook on certain characters HAS changed (for the better in quite some cases! Arcjec needs a kick to the shins, though), and, with more information, comes questions. So, I took to the wiki in order to get some insights, and herein I must ask some questions:

Murrit is said to "own Dismas's soul", but what exactly does this ownership entail? Is this a mere figure of speech, or does it hold deeper significance? Another thing I'd like to know about is the status of their relationship, as the wiki says that the 2 have "physically coupled" but no such information is given in the comic itself. Lastly, I'd like to directly quite the wiki:
Murrit and Dismas's relationship has been confirmed to be different for their respective dreamselfs, and rather then their waking world kismessitude, they are Matesprites. This was confirmed by Austin on the VE discord.
Disregarding the "extraneous information released in alternative outlet", how would this work? The comic says that there must be a merger between dream and real selves in order for the god-tier mechanic to work, so extrapolating here means that Dismas and Murrit's relationship has to drastically change, given that they're physically coupled (if I am to take the previous information at face-value), completely flipping from black to red after they've coupled, presumably cementing their status as kismesii. The other alternative here, of course, is of them somehow "transcending" quadrants, not unlike the Sufferer and Disciple in Homestuck. Unless one of them, oh, I don't know, dies or something before the 2 of them can flip. Although it'd be a possible solution, it still wouldn't answer the question, so I must ask here.

Speaking of Murrit: Here's some pondering, not exactly a question. Murrit says that he knows that there are 11 other trolls that HAVE to get in the game with him, including Ellsee. However, we also see that he simply doesn't want her in there, and we're not told exactly why, which makes him come off as a prick. But, he even says that he'd be willing to take the chance of having only 11 on the game, since "the odds are in the favor of the hive". BUT! We're shown why he's afraid of Ellsee, but while the details elude me (as I'm sure it is the intention), I'm more than willing to hazard a guess and say that this wasn't Ellsee's doing, but Gaiaeon showing Murrit visions of edge. But because Murrit doesn't know anything about Gaiaeon, he simply pins those visions on Ellsee, which is a win for Gaiaeon.

Following this thread, Gaiaeon has a knack for talking through televisions, and I think one can assume he's present through stylistic shifts (hey, you guys are putting art shifts to good use! Props to you guys for that, but look, that sequence where Taz is murdering people as a kid? Woulda been infinitely more effective in a better style. I know you guys have it in you, c'mon) and television distortion. Which makes me ponder: Could it be that when Arcjec is confronted by his child self, this is not an introspective moment, but Gaiaeon's interference, using Arcjec's own mind to fuck with him? If so, nice Leliel reference, bro.

I have a couple more questions, but I'm running short on time here, so I'll go back to this later. Much appreciated if I get some answers, and thanks for reading!
