  • Well I've been working on debunking all of Ferret's FNAF Theory Shorts and FNAf Theoretical Shorts. I've so gone through and debunked Soul Eating in FNAF, How Springsuits Really Work, FNAF 2 in 1992 (not really a debunk but more of a complaint post), and Shadow Freddy in FNAF 1. I'm currenty working on debunking the Summer Paradox, but I decided to take time off from it to debunk all of Ferret's FNAf theoretical shorts, so I'm currently debunking Purple Guy is a robot.

    Also I plan on making a post, probably tomorrow, about how William Afton is definitely a sociopath.

    • Cool, I look forward to it just remember to keep the debunking informative and objective and keep personal bias or appeal to emotion fallacies out of it. Outside of that you've got the green light and thumbs up from me.

      I've done my best for that. I stick to evidence and don't dive into insults and personal bias. I'll probably post them on the Wiki once I refine them.

  • So, while this story mainly focuses on William and Beverly’s younger son, Lucas Afton, as an adult in the aftermath of his Bite incident, I was thinking about your opinion of William’s character in the games, which is sorely lacking in development. Keeping this in mind, I wondered if I could somehow avert this with my story’s version of William. His role would have eventually been at a minimum, only serving as the one responsible for the majority of his son’s insanity, but I feel tempted to elaborate on William’s backstory a bit more. And in a different way than the Midnight Motorist theory, though parental abuse is still part of it. Here goes:

    William Afton was born as the son of James and Evelyn Afton. However, William’s conception wasn’t a loving one. Evelyn, 16 at the time, eventually formed a relationship with James, who was 7 years older than her. Evelyn’s parents didn’t approve of the relationship, though this didn’t stop them from eloping. However, whenever James was angry, he became physically and verbally abusive towards his wife. One night, James came in, and after throwing a fit, he raped Evelyn, conceiving William. The reason Evelyn stayed with him after this was because she didn’t have the proper education and James was the only to make ends meet, especially since she was going to be a mother, and she certainly couldn’t go back to her parents.

    James’ physical abuse of Evelyn shifted to his son, though he still yelled at his wife for anything she did wrong. Evelyn had a love-hate relationship with her son; as much as she cared enough to raise him initially, she also began to see him as the reason for all of her misery, since having enough money to raise him was the reason she stayed with a man that abused her, seeing William as a chain that binded her to James. It didn’t help that William already expressed symptoms of psychopathy (which actually is due to James raping Evelyn), which is a reason why both of his parents are abusive to him. His mental disorder made James ashamed of his son, and saw him as a “freak”, leading to a lot of merciless beatdowns at his father’s hands. Evelyn was also a religious zealot, and stuck to her Christian beliefs, viewing her son’s existence as a sin, due to his conception being the result of her being raped (forgive me if Evelyn’s depiction of zealotry is inaccurate, I’m not a religious person). William’s psychosis only fueled Evelyn’s resentment towards her son even more, to the point of both physical and psychological abuse. Essentially, William became a punching dummy for both of his parents whenever they felt angry. Evelyn, in particular, also had a tendency to punish William by crucifying him. To paint a picture of William’s childhood while under his mother’s care, think of Margaret White from Carrie. Eventually, William decided to return the favor and murdered both James and Evelyn on his 12th birthday for revenge.

    After James and Evelyn’s deaths, William was transferred to an orphanage. Due to his mental disorders, he was often bullied by the other orphans, much like his father, and due to his status as a child by rape, the nuns at the orphanage also hated William, much like his mother.

    There were only two other individuals that saw William as a person, and not just a psychopath: their names were Henry Emily and Beverly Schmidt. I’m sure you know what happened afterwards: William marries Beverly and starts a family with her, while also opening Fredbear’s Family Diner with Henry as his business partner. However, since Beverly’s acceptance of William’s mental disorder was what made him infatuated with her in the first place, William tried to suppress his psychotic tendencies and remain “normal”, as long as his wife was happy. In a way, Beverly acted as a nullifier for William’s insanity. After Beverly died of cancer, William was unable to let go of her, and then he remembered something: after he murdered his parents and became an orphan, there were several instances where the shadowy figures of his parents would appear outside the window of the bedroom. Through this, William came to the conclusion that immortality was possible. This leads to him developing remnant and killing Charlie, and you already know the rest of everything that happened after that. As for Beverly, she eventually possessed Grace when William created the animatronic for her, though since William didn’t have it in him anymore to resist his psychological issues, this caused him to program Grace in a way that corrupted his wife, much like his daughter when she possessed Baby.

    Why am I telling you all this? Well... because I have no idea how I would be able to convey all of this to the reader in DoTM’s present story. So, I figured I would tell you and see what you thought, since I might not be able to incorporate all of this into DoTM. Opinions?

  • The thing is I got so in depth I had to subtitle it "A Crash Course in Everything Springlock"

    Anyway, I was hoping to post it to the discussion board and was wondering if you thought that was a good idea, or if it would be better to put it on the dying forum, or post it in both places?

    Also maybe you could read over it so that you could confirm it isn't the same schlock that I've seen on the Discussion board lately (I mean did you see that Afton Wife one? Jeez it was awful).

  • I'm planning a fanfiction where CC is revived and then continues his father's experiments as a young adult, including those involving remnant, as the story's main antagonist. His way of going about this is residing in the Afton Robotics facility's underground area, and using the Twisted Animatronics to abduct people and transport them to the location, as a survival test. It is theorized that Lucas (that's my headcanon name for CC) became Shadow Freddy after his death, and the dialogue in FNaF 4's ending minigame gives off the indication that the Puppet is speaking to him. Since I may be trying too hard to keep everything from contradicting FNaF canon (it's honestly inevitable given how much the story changes), I could easily say this is an AU where Lucas survived his bite injury and being lobotomized (which would mean retconning Shadow Freddy's existence at that point), but the rest of the series still plays out as normal.

    An alternative I had was to explain that the Puppet's process of turning Lucas' spirit into Shadow Freddy was cut short and that William had managed to resurrect him via remnant while the Puppet was doing her thing. This is somewhat bordering on one of Ferret's theories (no offense, Ferret, I respect you), the whole "soul horcruxes" thing. Basically, Shadow Freddy is Lucas' positive qualities, his "good half" that has intentions to undo what his father started, while all of Lucas' malevolence, hatred, and resentment still remained within his body. Does this work at all, or is it simply too convoluted for even FNaF? All in all, if I'm going to have him as the main antagonist, I need to have Lucas' revival done right.

    And, another thing... while everything we do know about CC in FNaF 4 can easily make him sympathetic, Lucas' actions in the story, as an adult, can outweigh any sympathy that was previously provided by his debut game. How can I establish him as a tragic villain if he's so much like William? He doesn't have Elizabeth's corruption... though his insanity mostly stems from physical and emotional abuse at the hands of his father, much like his older brother, Michael. Sorry for the lengthy post, by the way.

    • Grace is possessed by Mrs. Beverly Afton, William’s wife, and mother of Michael, Elizabeth, and Lucas.

      The only flaw I could see with Beverly possessing Grace is... how? The AU gives me more freedom, but I don’t really know how to make it possible for Mrs. Afton to possess Grace.

      My options are either William created Grace for Beverly after she died and Lucas took Grace with him when he became an adult, Lucas created Grace and dug up his mother’s remains before stuffing her inside Grace, or Lucas created Grace in his mother’s likeness, and programmed Grace to emulate Beverly’s personality, but is otherwise not actually possessed by Beverly herself.

      Oh, and as for why Beverly is malevolent as Grace; same case as her daughter. Just like how Baby’s A.I. corrupted Elizabeth, Grace’s A.I. has corrupted Beverly.

      Grace’s purpose in Lucas’ tests is to serve as an executioner when he no longer has any use for his test subjects, as well as extract their spirits and contain them for Lucas to manipulate later on with his remnant experiments. In Beverly Afton’s warped mind as the Angel of Mercy, she genuinely and wholeheartedly believes that her younger son’s experiments are a gift, hence why she kills people who step out of line; from her perspective, these scared victims that are frightened for their lives are seen as “bratty children” who must be “punished” for being “ungrateful” for refusing her family’s “gift”, though she seems to be apathetic towards the fact that this immortality process is more of a curse rather than a blessing. Grace has the same face and hair that Beverly had as a human except made out of marble, though she wears a white dress with angelic wings on her back, which actually flap when she moves. Grace also moves in a similar fashion to the Puppet; by hovering above the ground. Her room in the underground testing facility is a church-like setting adorned with crucifixes, which all turn upside down when she’s activated. Grace herself also stands in a podium at the end of the room. And, even though it’s not important, I imagine Beverly was a nurse before she died, which makes her title even more fitting now that she’s trying to kill her son’s lab rats.

    • You go with either possible explanation for Grace, all of them work.

  • In the Portuguese translation for TTO, Springtrap is translated as "Homem Mola", literally "Spring Man". But it sounds way more ridiculous in the Portuguese context.

    I just wanted someone else to know this.
