(Rando thing because story potential and... Why the heck not?)
The following information is from files discovered in the residence of Dale Afton, following his disappearance in 2031.
Started in 1988, Project Athanasia was an attempt to achieve immortality through biorobotic means. The project aimed to create a cybernetic vessel with regenerative capabilities, making it immune to natural decay, a problem Afton's previous creations had failed to surpass. Teaming up with his brother Dale, a leading virologist and founder of pharmaceutical giant Silver Parasol, the two worked together to create a virus that would be capable of being injected into a robotic body, endowing it with the ability to heal. A name was decided; the Athanasia Serum.
The virus itself was created fairly quickly, being perfected in 1991. It was decided Minireenas were to be used as test subjects, due to their minimal threat to life. However, the real problem was managing to fuse the virus with the robotic body. Without any stimuli, the genetic material quickly died off, making the serum useless. However, the solution quickly presented itself; Remnant. By some miracle, the molten substance was compatible with the serum. By heating a test subject until remnant forms, the serum could be injected, allowing for a successful fusion and creation of a cybernetic life form. Dale sped up the process by creating a strain of Athanasia that self-combusted upon injection, the regenerative capabilities allowing the genetic material to survive during fusion.
However, the two brothers had yet to surpass one final problem; mutations. Despite the virus having regenerative qualities, it was highly reactive, resulting in abnormal tissue and muscle growth, leading to deformity. These mutations were most extreme in the early test subjects, from M-007 to M-053. The Minireenas beyond this were less extreme, but sustained damage had the same results.
William and Dale attempted to fix this, but were forced to abandon the project entirely after William contracted an illness after contact with an impure sample of Athanasia. It left him with severe facial deformities, and caused his body to slowly decay. Out of desperation to stop his sickness, Afton decided to go to Freddy's to dismantle the robots, getting the spirits to chase him into his Spring Bonnie suit, where he met a gruesome end. Before he went, Dale gave him a unique prototype sample of Athanasia, which slowed his decay and endowed him with the strength to destroy the robots.
Afterwards, Dale destroyed all the test subjects save one, which escaped captivity into Circus Baby's Entertainment & Rentals. He stored the remaining samples of Athanasia in Storage 2 on the first floor. Aware investigations may discover Silver Parasol's involvement with Afton Robotics, Dale shut his company down, later reincorporating it as a games company three decades later.
Well, I wasn't, so yeah. It turns out being blocked and not having to deal with loads of notifications meant I could reflect on things properly, and I think I have reached a final conclusion on this troublesome minigame. Well, for now.
Anyways, I might as well start.
(Also we're doing this in sections because that's my thing now.)
Alright let's see... Slightly hunched over, thin, is a terrible father, lives in a suspiciously isolated house, speaks in dialogue of a similar if not almost identical colour to William's lines in Fruity Maze(we're not counting the blue dialogue because that just seems to be there to add emphasis) and owns a purple car(sure it's different, but remember the car first appeared in a minigame with basic sprites such as "Pink Guy".) Yeah sorry, but it's William. However, he's orange. Sure, that seems bad for this but honestly it's not that big a deal. After Miketrap Scott realised he had to be more specific about who's who. Obviously though you don't just change sprite colours without warning, so Scott left a little clue so we could figure out who OG was, which is shown in the artwork cutscenes.
At the beginning cutscene, we can see a man wearing purple in front of an orange background. Also if you look closely, he's wearing orange clothing underneath.
In the Insanity Ending cutscene we can see a man wearing orange in front of a purple background. And- you guessed it- he's wearing purple clothing underneath.
What's more(and this is an important one), it's the same guy each time, just wearing different clothes. Orange and purple aren't separate entities here, they're two sides of the same coin.
I don't think anything else needs to be said here.
Another mysterious character, this one being a little easier to guess the identity of. He's wearing grey, speaks in light grey dialogue, knows of a boy and watches TV. Do we know anyone like that? Yes we do. In 4 we knew of a teenage boy wearing grey who spoke with grey dialogue. He had a little brother, and made his life hell. In the very next game we played as him, and learnt he likes TV.
That's right, our grey friend is ya boi Michael Afton. I think it's a safe conclusion to reach, especially considering how Orange Guy seems to William, Michael's father. Seriously, who else can it be? His wife seems to have left when Mike was a baby(Fake Ending showed them reconciling, which due to the nature of said Ending means this never happened), so it can't be her.
However, something's off. In 4, Michael's a dick to his younger brother, yet in this minigame he seems to have completely changed tune, saying "Leave him alone tonight. He had a rough day." This is important, because it's proof this is before 4's events, which should be obvious because:
A; CC's alive in this minigame
B; This an entirely different house
That being said, Mike could just be pretending, and still is a meanie to his brother before 4. The next two points will expand upon this.
That out the way, I think I've shown all the proof for this. It's not as much as the proof for Orange Guy being William, but honestly you don't need much proof for this. It's kinda obvious.
The runaway child
Okay, let's be serious. In the context of the last two sections, who else could this be but CC at this point? They're male, and the size of their footprints implies they're young. Also, let's note their bedroom door is locked. In the first minigame for FNaF 4, Michael locks CC in his room. Perhaps CC broke out the window not because he was scared of Afton(who might I add responds explosively to the door being locked, which apparently is against the rules. Surely CC wouldn't want to piss his dad off by doing this?) but because Mike left him no choice.
It's also worth noting Afton says CC has ran off to "that place" before. As for where "that place" is I'd say Freddy's, as in 4 it's shown CC hates being at Fredbear's and Michael knows that, which is why he left him there. Surely you wouldn't want to run away to a place you don't like? Wouldn't you rather go to a place where you feel safe, somewhere with your friends? In 4, CC says "these are my friends" when looking at plushies of Freddy, Bonnie, Chica and Foxy. Perhaps he knew the kids that would go on to possess these mascots. 4 implies he witnessed at least part of the MCI, so what's to say he didn't know the victims before that?
This one's a weird one. This thing isn't easy to find, being deliberately placed in a small turnoff point that's easy to miss. As well as this, we can't interact with it, only being able to walk around and look.
So, what is the purpose of this lump of dirt? Simple.
It's a grave.
There's one member of the family noticeably missing from the frame in this minigame; Elizabeth. She's absolutely nowhere, and isn't mentioned once. That might seem random, but there's a reason for this. In 4, there was an empty girl's room in the house, it being the only hint towards Elizabeth. It was pretty easy to deduce what had happened there; Elizabeth had died, leaving only her empty room as a reminder. This, like CC being locked in his room, parallels 4's minigames, implying what's happened occurred before 4's minigames.
However, this throws a bit of curveball. The presence of this grave implies she's dead already, and since we've reached the conclusion this has to be before 4, it makes things a tad confusing. Unless the Aftons were moving house I don't really see how this works. I mean this a different house, yet we saw something similar to it in 4's menu, so maybe they did move. I dunno.
And before someone questions Elizabeth having a grave, she totally would. The robots in SL have like daily maintenance, so it would only be a matter of time before a body was found. Also, how else would Afton know Elizabeth was down in CBE&R in SL unless he knew she died?
Finally, Elizabeth being dead at this point in time would have some implications for Michael's behaviour in this minigame. 4 and SL suggest her death deeply affected Mike, potentially being the catalyst for him bullying CC in 4. If Elizabeth was dead before then, there's nothing to say he wasn't acting up before as well. Hell, Fredbear Plush implies this has been going on for quite some time.
"He will be sorry when he comes back."
What did Afton mean when he said this? Well, I believe I have an answer.
What do I mean by that? Let me explain. In 4's minigames we are constantly being watched, wherever we go. The Fredbear plush acts as both a friend to CC and a spytoy. It's camera eyes continuously follow our every movement, and some of its messages seem to act as deterants for us when we go somewhere we're not meant to go. Afton's very much keeping his eye on us.
But it's not just that. In 4's main gameplay we are playing as a child, as evidenced by our height, and the fact the steam description says as much. In this experience we are forced to fend off against the nightmares; terrifying illusions of the characters that appear to be created from our mind. Sure, their appearance(and some sounds) relate to Mike's experiences, but SL makes it very clear this experience was real for some poor unfortunate soul.
But what unfortunate soul? Let's try and find out. First of all, consider this:
Michael's childhood toys are in this house.
Let me emphasise that. A seemingly random house with no specific location has Michael's childhood toys, and the Midnight Motorist house just so happens to resemble the house in 4's menu.
That's an oddly convenient detail.
But... in SL, we learn the house in 4's minigames was Observatory 1, and the house in 4's gameplay is Observatory 2.
So, assuming the gameplay house is the house from Midnight Motorist, how the hell does this work?
Well, it's not too hard. In Observatory 1, the only camera is the Fredbear Plush, which constantly follows us. In Observatory 2, there's actual cameras, which Afton views from the Private Room. Therefore, after they moved house to Observatory 1 William rigged the old house with cameras, making it Observatory 2 due to it being made afterwards
Also, the passcode just so happens to be 1983, the same year 4's minigames take place.
Again, another convenient detail.
So, what's my conclusion on the Observatory 2 protagonist's identity?
CC again, because who the hell else would you lock in your old home and watch them panic as their "friends" come to life in the worse way possible? I mean, if you look at the gameplay, you can see correlations between the minigames and gameplay. The main five nightmares correspond to CC's friends(NFB even speaks like Fredbear Plush), Plushtrap is a twisted take on the "finger trap" Spring Bonnie plush and Nightmare BB seems to be based off of that one kid holding a balloon(I'm not counting Nightmare as that's just NFB made to look like Shadow Freddy, who can only exist after the real experience). It's not just a weird experiment, it's a punishment. Afton's way of reminding him of that one time he locked his door... By trapping him in a warped version of his room, where he has to face twisted versions of his friends.
I feel like we need a summary of this due to how long this bit got, so I'll draw one up. Here's the conclusions reached:
Runaway kid is CC, who Mike locked in his room.
Afton never suspected this, so blamed CC instead.
CC ran away often, and went to Freddy's to see his friends.
One day he saw something he shouldn't have, so Afton decided to turn the house they were moving to into an observatory by using a Fredbear Plush spytoy. This way he could keep an eye on CC and prevent him from seeing things he shouldn't.
Meanwhile, he worked on a secondary Observatory, rigging the old house with cameras and hallucinodisks. He also altered the look of the house, to add to the experience. Once it was finished, he forced CC to go through a torturous series of experiments involving CC being trapped in his bedroom while facing off against nightmarish versions of the animatronics. The Funtimes, if HW is to be taken seriously, also parcipated via a secret passageway connected to CBE&R. In fact, Funtime Freddy was likely the one taking CC to these places, as there are passageways to all the places, and his storage tank seems designed for this purpose.
Some of these experiments may have gone on during the time of 4's minigames, as evidenced by Fun with Plushtrap/Balloon Boy, which parody two things CC saw two days before his birthday. Then again, he may have seen these things before.
Damn, that was longer than I expected.
The weather and "Later that night"
I feel this kind of has to be discussed, as it influences many theories relating to this. In the Security Puppet minigame, it is raining, and Afton has sped off in his car. In Midnight Motorist it's also raining, and the car drives at crazy speeds at the start. As well as this, the words "Later that night" were found in the files.
As such, people have concluded Midnight Motorist is straight after Charlotte's death, despite the fact this has so many contradictions. For one, Elizabeth is dead already, and CC is very much existent in this minigame. As well as this, Michael looks like his 1983 self so unless this took place that same year-
Hang on a minute...
(Reads through TFC)
Okay, I know that's not definitive proof, but I really can't find a way around this without overcomplicating things.
Unless it's some other night where it was raining and making the same noise, but that sounds kinda dumb. And knowing Scott, this is the sorta trolly thing he's do.
Have fun with that, timeline builders. I don't like it any more than you do.
JR's and Green Guy
Oh, don't I love this one.
Okay, let's start with something basic; JR's is a common name for a pub or bar, and GG refuses to let us in. It's also pretty far out, being located in the woods down a narrow road. Focusing on just that we could simply say it's a bar and William's an alcoholic. However, this wouldn't be a complete analysis if we didn't look at everything, so let's focus on Scott's choice of colour for the man outside; green. FFPS seems to play on its colours a bit, so can we find anything relating to this particular colour?
Well, yes. There's quite a lot.
Firstly, I checked the cutscenes. I wasn't expecting much, but I found both the man and the bear wearing green, and each time it seemed to be in business related scenarios. It's also worth noting the colour orange creeps up in these images, with one image showing a guy wearing orange underneath green-
Okay, no. The cutscenes have exhausted their usefulness here. Continuing on like this would result in something utterly crazy, like Green Guy being Orange Guy.
So, anything else we can use?
Well, green seemed to be a bit of a Henry related colour in the Security Puppet minigame. Our assigned colour was green, the Puppet's eyes were green and Charlotte's bracelet was green. By this logic, Green Guy is Henry. However, if assuming this is after Charlotte's death, why would Afton take such a risk by going back to the very place he just left from? It's a logical paradox.
So, that out the way, is there any other possible way we can interpret this?
Well, there is. You see, there's another use of the colour green in the series, which is a reoccurring theme in most minigames. People wearing green. The people that have literally no relevance other than just being there. Kids in posters, the kids we feed cake to in TCTTC, the hungry kids in Chica's Party, the running child in Mangle's Quest, the dancing children in Stage01, Crying Child in FNaF World, some of the onlookers in SL and even the kids in the starting minigame of FFPS. People that we simply don't need to analyse, because honestly it's fruitless.
Using this, we can simply say GG was just a guy doing his job. End of story.
Seriously, can you imagine Henry saying "come on man"?
Okay, these ones.
Honestly these things have made me tear my hair out looking for a solution. I've given reasoning for all the above points, but this one can bring them down with ease, resulting in a more complicated solution. Even if I say OG isn't William, it makes all the other stuff confusing, as it very much seemed to be that way.
So, I've thought long and hard about this, and it is my honest conclusion that I believe the footprints to be...
A red herring.
Seriously, these things seem completely random. They appear to have come from nowhere, and they don't go anywhere. They're just there. OG pays no heed to them, and they don't intersect with the runaway child's path. They don't match the feet of any suspects(Nightmares or Funtimes), and if we say Glitchtrap it's a blatant retcon due to the fact we learnt of his existence after. Also, regardless of whether it's a costume or not, how do you make mamilian footprints with any of the above. Logically their feet should be completely flat, and a man cannot simply wear a fabric costume with three toes and leave footprints like that. At least, I don't think so.
Therefore it is my conclusion that like the posters in the Security Puppet minigame, this means absolutely nothing at all. Like old Joe said: "not every story has to have significance."
Is this right? Probably not. Are there other solutions? Certainly, but this was my take on it. It's highly speculative, and I have no way to prove anything I've said for certain. However, I haven't found anyone discussing some of the things in this, so I thought I'd get it out there. Feel free to call this out, perhaps you noticed a flaw or a detail I missed. I'm sure there's holes to this.
Speaking of other solutions, Matpat made a video on Midnight Motorist recently. I don't necessarily believe it, but you should definitely check it out. He offered a lot of interesting ideas that you might like.
You know, I've been thinking about Mat's theory. When you first look at it it's kinda bonkers, but looking back I can kind of see it working. Obviously it would take a lot of time to settle with the community if it was confirmed, but I could survive it.
Perhaps this is the reason why William had one kid in the books.
I mean, it would give a name to a nameless character, and actually works well in terms of The Immortal & The Restless (Henry shunned Sammy and his wife in the books), but understandably this would cause upset. It would be like 83 all over again.
Anyways, I may have been demoted from Wiki Hopper to Wall Crawler, but that doesn't mean I'll stay dead or whatever. I mean, I don't exactly have a way to get people here, but hopefully they'll bump into this.
So, despite what's happened, I'll probably still post stuff, but not as regularly as before. I can only comment here and can't edit, which kinda sucks. But at least I'm alive, even if this will inevitably look rather silly. Oh well, can't exactly get back here at least not on this IP so yeah.
And before you ask, I'm not apoligising for that comment. I apoligise for the KYS part obviously, but as for the rest he had that coming. You don't just screw with me like that and expect a good outcome.
Negativity aside, I realise what I did was wrong and have plenty of time to reflect on that.
Wow, I really suck at speeches. Anyways I think that wraps whatever this was up.
And tell the guys in writing to put more emphasis on the word dreaming-
I'm glad you're apologizing for at least that part of your comment. The part that got you banned, I mean. However, I wish you'd reconsider some of the other hurtful things you've said during your time, here.
My depression started when I received a comment like the one you posted, which is why you should never say that to people. You never know how it will affect someone.
One "KYS" comment was all it took to shatter my world, and send me spiraling into the dark depths of despair.
To be fair, depression runs in my family, and my brain was likely a ticking time-bomb at that point. It was only a matter of time, before something would jump-start my mental health issues. In any event, this is why people need to think about what they say online. If you wouldn't say it to someone's face, don't say it in an internet comment.
I mean, it looks and is ridiculous, but it's a game in universe so I'll let it slide.
Honestly at this point I'm tempted to let it all slide. After FFPS logic just completely broke in this universe. Like it was always unstable from the begining, but that game did a number on what could be taken seriously anymore. And don't even get me started on UCN.
Same, but he got out once, so I really wouldn't jump out my seat if he showed up in FNaF: IM or something. Sure a trace of him was found at the scene, one that became Glitchtrap, but anyone bothered to question the condition of these traces. These were SCANABLE. Not burnt to heck, but scanable. Handed in by some shady ass client who somehow got access to this. We could just say poor logic for new mystery... Yet If the books have the same logic regarding remnant as the games, then the main body of remnant has to still exist for any separate entities to survive. Sure he's a digital boi in HW but he does some real paranormal stuff for a simple bit of code. Also, I'm sorry, but you don't code personalities. This bastard's Will's spitting image in that respect, and seems to survive despite deletion. I'll tell you why it survived, not just because it hatched some plan using Tape Girl's voice(which honestly I doubt even happened because as silly as the narrative is, the only evidence for this is Glitchtrap attaching himself to the logs which doesn't have much to go by considering all it does is make him splittable and give him the ability to repeat recorded lines albeit highly distorted, which kinda debunks the theory as he can't form new words.) but because it can't be killed. So long as the spirit remains, he will always come back. And there's nothing to say that was all that survived.
So he's just endlessly dashing through a flaming forest, screaming about Mike and Henry as he does so? I know there's supposedly no way out of sublevel 4, but this appeared on the monitor. Unlike some stuff in that final cutscenes it was being filmed. Also, if we go down the UCN is canon route(which Star has convinced me not to be the case), doesn't this defeat the purpose of the gameplay?
Now that's true. The others may be content to rest, but not him. He's honestly the Jack Baker of this series, enduring things that would utterly destroy the others. Glitchtrap may be referred to as malignant code, but it's behaviour is way too advanced for a mere virus. Digital consciousness transfers? Real world manifestations? Pull the other one.
Like, this man took on the Classics with what looks to be his bare hands, and won. Add on the fact he got out of Fazbear's Fright with what looks to be only slight damage, along with his return in HW, and you realise he wasn't lying when he said "I always come back."
Well, it wasn't much of a plan. Kill a bunch of kids and stuff them in suits to see if they possess them due to one isolated incident where Elizabeth possessed Baby, then find a way to get these things from the restaurant to some edgy underground lab, and melt them down so they can be put into OCs of Freddy and Foxy, some messed up ballerina, things that look like mannequins, robo babies and maybe some others.
Oh, and while we're at it, why not get your son to do all the work, and make the other son's life a living hell by constantly watching him because he saw something he shouldn't have, and use him like a lab rat for experiments with illusions? Oh, and even when you frick up and get Springtrapped, keep on killing anyway. Oh, and if you get burned, just repair your suit with parts from another costume, because you're way too far gone and deformed to integrate into humanity like your novel counterpart. 10/10 advice for if you die and become immortal right there.
He doesn’t. As seen in the BtS shots, the springlock endoskeleton torso can bend around the midsection, much like the classic endoskeleton. In that shot, if you can properly line up the metal frame, it’s bending right where it’s shown to be able to. So no, Afton doesn’t have scoliosis. Hell it wouldn’t even be him with that anyway.
Also I kinda forgot to mention it was my grandmother's birthday yesterday, so the comic kinda went out the window. Eh, what I'd done was kinda trash, and when we came back the cat ripped it to bits anyways.
 PLOT LEAKED(NOT CLICKBAIT): Sock Cotton is triumphed once more by Dawko in 5000000/20 mods. Enraged, he calls an old friend: lolhacks. The two travel to a universe where anime is real, and create the abominations seen on the new teaser. They then drag these things back to their universe, and make 49 individual games on them.
The date is 2020.
Matpat has gone insane, and the king of FNaF has been dethroned.
That was... Beautiful. Loved the New Game/Continue thing, and the story was absolutely spot on. Setting, characterisation, references... You name it. A grade. Top standard. The whole schbang. I don't think there's a way to express how much I loved it, because it was so good.
What’s interesting to me is that the guy who voiced Withered Foxy in that game is actually the same guy who sang Don’t Stop Me Now for the Bohemian Rhapsody movie (and that one is also my favorite Queen song). What are the odds?
Assuming the novels are a vantage point, what the hell was up with that kidnapping plot thread? Like, assuming Matpat was right about Orange Man being Henry(which I guess makes sense because who the hell else would Afton go to such lengths to hurt?), surely Sammy being lured away byWilliam in his Spring Bonnie costume would be some sort of parallel to that event? TTO seemed rather fixated on tying upsome of 4's loose ends what with the Twisteds and hallucinodisks, yet had this seemingly pointless story about Sammy being abducted by William. Like, why? If you're trying to do something with the books, then great, but this plot point went nowhere, with TFC retconning it's importance out of existence. Unlewss a message was being told, it had no reason to exist.
And what's more, I'm starting to question the nature of Charlotte's death in the books too. You see, I don't think John was far off with his Samantha theory, he just got the wrong person. You see, besides a gravestone with an innacurate date(the kidnapping occured in 1982) and a newspaper, we have no proof she died. And as much as Afton could hurt Henry by killing his daughter, it wouldn't be above him to do something worse. What if, instead of kiling the 2-3 year old Charlotte, he raised her as his own, calling her by the name Elizabeth? What if, the reason for the connection between her and the android Charlie wasn't just because Baby was the perfected adult version of her, but because she was the real one? It's a tad bonkers, but not impossible.
And who is to say something like this didn't occur in the games. Who's to say Midnight Motorist, seemingly the most random minigame ever, wasn't a retelling of that kidnapping? That Sammy survived, and was raised by William as a second son who he had to keep an eye on, even resorting to keeping him terrified of what he has seen happening to him? In both continuities the kids would be too young to remember much outside their life in Afton's Family.
Then again I could just be wrong and we never know the answer.
I mean, it's a weird one. Scott usually provides some form of answer(even if it takes years to reach a common agreement on) for these things. But this mystery? Never gets solved. Sure, the grave is there, but there were graves for the MCI victims, whose bodies were never found. And the one time William addresses this, it's just "I took you." Not, I killed you or whatever, just that. Then comes book 3, and suddenly Afton has a daughter. A daughter who impersonates Charlie, and is so convincing she manages to fool everyone except John. She doesn't kill anyone, she just... assimilates into their lives. You have to wonder, why? Why is it that Elizabeth, embodying a previously soulless, unfinished adult Charlie turned Circus Baby, knows things only the past Charlies would know, and is very much fixated on her teenage version, almost trying to prove a point by saying things like "I'm the only you that matters"? And there's that one slip up, that one slip up, where Elizabeth calls Henry " my father." I don't think that was a mistake, I think that was intentional. Not to mention, Elizabeth keeps on acting like Charlie's the imposter, despite the fact she's literally possessing her adult body and knows what she is.
Starscream1998 wrote: Yeah it makes more sense for Glitchtrap to act like a virus that infects things. He's basically a digitised version of Ennard so who knows maybe the next game will explore Glitchtrap's evolution into this unrecognisable being who has gone from being a piece of William to some unholy abomination formed from multiple consciousnesses.
For some reason I thought of this bursting out of Glitchtrap's costume:
I mean, both are(or were) called William.
It was this virus thing that some asshole named William(figures) injected into himself. It started altering his genetic structure, slowly growing a new body out of his, which as you can imagine would be rather painful for the host. After a while, it's need for food and whatnot(and also probably because whole clips had been emptied into this thing by now) eclipsed its need to have a humanoid form, so it started devolving, first as this... quadruped thing with it's ribcage acting as it's mouth now, and finally into a blob that was just absorbing anything organic into its biomass.
Also, that bastard is tough. Like, he gets shot multiple times by these soldier guys, and manages to inject himself despite the fact he's got like several holes in his chest. He then falls from a great height after being shot a bunch of times, but doesn't die. Gets hit by a swinging crane and falls from a great height, doesn't die. Gets shot dozens of times with things like flame and acid rounds, doesn't die. Seemingly over-mutates and has his head explode, doesn't fucking die. It's only when he's blown up in a train cart is he finished. Afton pales in comparison to William Birkin.
I may be, uh, not here for a little while. Few months maybe, or weeks, not really sure. Just thought it might help with writing out a rough skeleton for TR's story. Might go back to the original concept for inspiration. Obviously it's going to need changing, but frankly I felt the most free with that one. All the other ideas felt like they were trying to live up to that one's standards. Not sure why, but eh.
As much as I dislike the notion, I'm pretty certain Orange Guy is Afton. The car, rain, the person watching TV in a similar way to Michael(I swear the dude must be wearing glasses by SL) along with the son seemingly being treated poorly(CC much?) suggest as much. Sure, he's a cunt, but we have to remember this is William before Elizabeth's death. Before he adopted a scientific angle to his murders. As for Michael, the same applies to him. The man was a genuinely caring guy, but after Elizabeth died he went off the rails. That's why he broke that Foxy toy, tormented his brother and went to CBE&R. He wasn't just doing it for kicks or because father said so, he was doing it because it was the only way he could cope with his sister's loss.
As for Green Guy, he's likely just an employee doing his job. Sure, JR's being a bar is a bit lacking in story potential, but at least it provides an explanation for the speeding, Charlotte's murder, and his overall behaviour in the minigame. Afton doesn't usually panic, yet he clearly did that one time. Those tire marks are in plain sight; he sped out of there, away from Fredbear's. This suggests to me he wasn't thinking straight and acted irrationally, tying into him being an alcoholic.
That being said, this isn't just a case of a drunken man killing his business partner's child. Something else was going on here. This house is incredibly isolated, which is instantly suspicious. Also, those footprints and that mound? Totally a Twisted Animatronic. As for why it would abduct Afton's son, I have one idea.
The experiments hinted at in the Private/Breaker room and 4's gameplay happened earlier than 1983.
My research concludes that Fredbear, Freddy, Bonnie, Chica, Foxy and The Puppet coexisted in 1973, making it perfectly possible for the first five Nightmares along with Nightmarrionne to exist at this point. I mean yeah they're illusions, and the Nightmares are Michael's perception of them, but you get my point. Plushtrap and Nightmare BB hadn't been conceived yet, so the real event, recreated by Fun with Plushtrap/Balloon Boy, logically occurred in 1983, when Freddy's opened and Spring Bonnie was introduced(BB, like the Toys, was just merchandise at this date). This has massive implications as it suggests the gameplay of 4 didn't just take place at separate locations, but also separate time points. And if that fails, the Funtimes likely existed in 197X(Charlotte's death has no specific date in the games, so could be years after 1973.) On reflection, maybe it's both cases.
Well, yeah it mentions getting in a house but... I don't recall Afton putting a bag over someone's head, whacking them with a shovel, and dragging them into the trunk of his car either. Hell, even the Susie one's a little incorrect.
In HW Easter Egg videos people say Glitchtrap actually says Hello? Can you hear me? Very similar to Tape Girl. Also Tape Girl introduces herself TWICE.
But the thing about it is, if Tape 16 is recorded by Malhare, when we press the button, play the music etc. Glitchtrap should merge with us, but the opposite happens, HE becomes a plushie, and does not show up again, just like Tape Girl said.
I think the Safe Room thing is just a cutscene. They probably did not want to show an animation of a Glitchy Rabbit to a plush.
Why not Henry? At least it can still be after Charlie's death, If it has to. There is a grave, hinting towards only one child died so far.
Also, remember Drown Ending from FNAF World? There was a man looking just like Orange Guy with 2 children. Henry is the only guy who has 2 children.
And there is a little detail that Scott carefully added. Orange Guy's color is very close to yellow. Yellow and purple are contrast colors. Opposite colors. Henry and William are (sorta)enemies. Doesn't it make sense for 'em to have opposite colors?
