Poppop's Identity Edit
Personally I have doubts as to Poppop actually being the Post-Scratch version of John. While there is evidence to suggest that is the case we all seem to just be going on about everyone being swapped, no questions asked. The only real example we have of Guardian Swap is from the Ancestors' session, and there is a key difference between their session and John, Rose, Dave, and Jade's: they didn't escape the Scratch. We don't know if escaping the Scratch actually changes anything in the Post-Scratch universe, but with Hussie's habit of turning things around it's best to go on the side of caution.
Naturally, this is still a wiki and any errors can be corrected, but I'd rather not mislead people coming to the wiki with information that could potentially turn out false. This is just a theory and also can turn out wrong. Hopefully you guys will consider this. » Sean gorter « 16:29, November 18, 2011 (UTC)
- Further, Jake says that he is sending the bunny to Jane's deceased Poppop, which suggests strongly that he is, in fact, post-Scratch John. --DarthEinstein 22:12, November 18, 2011 (UTC)
Regarding the Poppop-is-not-John theory, the ancestors, being the pre-scratch trolls, did escape the scratch thanks to Meenah. Also, if you notice Rose said every ectobaby was duplicated (Nanna and Jane both came to Earth with that dirty fedora, John and Poppop came to Earth with the Colonel's book, Jade and Grandma came to Earth with Rose's repaired bunny, etc.), so genetically Poppop and John are the same person, just separate lives. The players don't have to be erased to be included in the reset universe; all the scratch needs is ectobabies/ectogrubs who came to their home planet by meteor with the Reckoning. Sorry about the length of that. I'll shut up now until further notice. 126.96.36.199 16:33, October 27, 2012 (UTC)
- Just a heads-up, this discussion took place before Rose explained exactly what the Scratch did, of course now we know and this whole discussion looks silly from the present (although to be fair I have seen some people who didn't this stuff, I don't know if they didn't understand Rose's explanation or just forgot but yeah). - The Light6 (talk) 17:35, October 27, 2012 (UTC)
I doubt being named poppop is a reference to Arrested Development, as Pop-Pop is a fairly normal "Nanna"-ish name for grandfathers.
