  • Don’t even try to rationalize pokemon breeding. A wailord and a skitty can be bred. Pokémon breeding makes no sense. It’s not worth thinking about.

  • Lmao this aged perfectly, everything matched up with Chapter 2, and theres even 7 chapters, justifying the Chapter per day theory

  • I think Michael is Williams biological son because in sister location he says 'they thought I was you' so he must have some sort of resemblance to William. Also what if Mrs Afton was a character and died or left at some point which is why Foxy bro started bullying C.C, in the book step closer Pete bullies Chuck because his parents are divorced and has to take care of Chuck. The book might mean more than just Foxy bro being Michael.

    • This might be a bit of a stretch but what if C.C and Elizabeth are Mrs Afton's children and Mrs Afton was married to someone else at some point which is why Elizabeth feels a distance between her and William.

  • A theory: What if the delays that Security Breach has been having aren't 100% unintentional? Every FNaF with a subtitle has had some kind of hidden meaning: Sister Location was about a related site but also revealed the fate of Michael's sister, Pizzeria Simulator was set in a literal simulated pizzeria, Help Wanted was about answering a job posting but also about Glitchtrap seeking help to escape the program, and Special Delivery... well, they can't all be winners. But with Security Breach, sure the play on words could be referring to Vanny posing as a security guard like we've seen from the leaked statue, but this is also the first time delays have resulted in these merch leaks and spoilers... "Breaches" in the "Security" of the information. Basically, what I'm saying is that I wouldn't put anything past Scott "Everything I touch turns to ARG" Cawthon, and I'm not going to 100% trust any information about Security Breach until it actually comes out (and possibly not even then)

  • I completely disagree that sans and papyrus are gaster I think it’s far more interesting from a story standpoint that there not ! I belive the brothers share some kind of connection to him though and that sans is some kind of scientist
