I see your point and I agree that many issues would follow.
To clarify, I do not want Him to be Junior's father, I just think that it would make sense. I don't know too much about the theories behind Danny Fenton and Timmy Turner, but neither of them seem quite right to me. Their both just too pure of heart. And unlike Him, Mandy doesn't seem like she's into the whole corrupting people thing. Between the two Fenton seems more likely, but based on goals, personalities and past relationships I doubt Mandy would be his fist choice for a one night stand. Dark Danny not applicable or comparable in this situation.
I wasn't there for the original discussion, but from what I gathered, these are some reasons for why Fenton and Turner are top of the list.
Physically speaking, Jr's hair resembles their pointed styles. Same eye color when Jr is in his human form as well.
Mentally, Jr shows similar creativity and sense of responsibility. Though this goes into a psychological and physiological argument over whether personality traits are hereditary, it's quite possible that as a fictional character, Jr's character archetype was heavily influenced by whoever his possible father is.
Jr being Mandy's firstborn, her first choice for a biological father may only need to meet a single requirement, that being strength.
I also believe Fenton is more probable. As for how either could've been involved, there's 3 options I've consdiered, likely many others have as well, probably more too.
1. There's the possibility that Mandy or Grim used a 'quick fix' to make the process run smoother.
2. A traumatic event led to either candidate onto a dark path, say the loss of a loved one. For Fenton, maybe something similar to what happened in Ultimate Enemy. To Timmy, maybe the loss of his Godparents.
3. Grim may have made a deal with Clockwork. Clockwork does his thing and makes some kind of paradox, or similar, to allow Jr's conception.
Caish wrote:You got me thinking concerning the Love Triangle. As far as I can tell there doesn't appear to be anything romantic between Mimi and Junior. I think Junior just feels responsible for her, and make up for the pain that he thinks he has caused her. Mimi doesn't seem to feel much of anything for Junior. When he's around she just acts aloof, scared, or violent, none of which suggests to me grounds for a future romance. Minnie is just jealous her beloved brother is giving his attention to someone else when she feels it is rightfully hers.
Based off of Mimi's past interactions, it's clear that her mind is different than the orthodox. She's shown that even before her 'transformation' she had a playful violent way of affection, with Raven. After Him took her, he put her through enough torture to make her a masochist. Mimi also knows that anyone she seems to ever care about gets hurt, no exceptions. Each time Mimi shows affection to Jr, she immediately counters by attacking him, likely to protect him from falling under her 'everyone I love gets hurt' thought process.
Beyond canon, there are ofc many fan shippings, which I'm sure you are aware of. Whether the love triangle exists of not canon wise, it definitely exists for the fans. I'm sure, if Mimi is Jr's half sister, like Minnie, anyone who ships Jr x Mimi would be outraged.
