I don't have direct links as these were usually tossed around. A lot of people took it at face value and said "that's the truth."
As far as what sex was "under good terms" and what was " under bad terms, I'm gonna need more than just what's been implied. I'm wondering if Aku was included as part of the deal Blossom made with Him.
Cerulean wrote:Not to mention that Blossom choosing to remain with Mimi over Chi (who is somehow biologically related to Blossom) seems a bit out of character (why choose one daughter over the other?). Then again this theory pretty much relies on Blossom being the one who betrayed everyone in Megaville.
I can not come up with a single good explanation for why Aku got to keep his child, but Him didn't. It just doesn't add up.
Cerulean wrote:We'd also have to have a definition of what they consider to be "betrayal" to fully understand the terms of Megaville's destruction in GT. Is it simply someone betraying the heroes (their weaknesses for example) to the villains? Or did Blossom (just an example) betray the heroes by teaming up with a villain to somehow save (or whatever the terms of the deal were) the town (or whatever it was that she needed help with)? I think that it would have been ironic if the downfall of Megaville was actually the result of the Heroes own doing. Something along the lines of:
*Blossom and Him enter the scene
*Heroes presume Him is up to no good and attack
*Blossom and/or Him defend against the onslaught
*A catastrophic event occurs (let's say this is what she needed help with) while the Heroes are fighting
*The Catastrophe combined with the Heroes vs. Him fight destroys Megaville (and kills a good portion of the heroes) anyway
*Blossom still has to uphold her side of the deal because he did technically come to help as she requested (Monkey's Paw scenario)
*Blossom becomes pregnant
I seriously doubt this. There are many reasons why I don't think this it possible.

If Aku were to survive, then I doubt that he would risk the possibility of humans unlocking the mysteries of time travel. After all, Aku is capable of sending whomever he wishes to whichever point in time that he pleases. If humans were to somehow grasp the concept of time travel, and Jack were to discover it, then he (Jack) could simply go back to the second after he was forced to come to the distant future, and kill Aku while he was at his weakest. It gets confusing, however, when you think about why Jack wouldn't want to kill Aku (if he found a way back to the past). Mercy? Or was it due to outside interference? Or did Aku simply force Jack to go to GT Megaville before the final blow was struck? That's all I have so far. At the very least, it could explain why Clockwork exists in GT timeline, but the Time Squad doesn't exist.
That's a really interesting theory there. About how if Aku remained alive, he would never allow humanity to utilize something as powerful as time travel. Good shotin' there. Given the fact that BR said the split happened a long time ago, there's no telling how far back we could be talking about here. However I'm still holding on the possibility that the split happened sometime during the events of PpGD. As a matter of fact, I'm kinda hoping for this for some reason, I guess I just like the idea of the split happening in familiar territory.
I came up with a half-assed theory a long time ago, but I never got a chance to post it, but fuck it, here it goes: What if in the GT world, the point in which Blossom made the deal with Him, was the night she almost died when Mandark kidnapped her? What if when she had her out-of-body experience, it was Him, not DeeDee that showed up. Him could have offered Blossom a second chance at life, in exchange for an Heir for Him and Aku, and if she ever went back on her deal, Him could just take her life away with a flick of his claw. But in the PpGD universe, Jack somehow stopped Him from showing up that night (probably by killing Him), so he never got the chance to intervene. Grim was about to take Blossom's soul, but then DeeDee showed up and told Grim about how Blossom wasn't really suppose to die tonight (the part where she whispered in his ear), and given the unusual circumstances, asked if he could just let this one slide.

But one can be hopeful with NEK as the editor.
We better get those fucking answers. >:\
Or at least the more important ones. You can't just drag people along like that, and never reward them for there patience.
Also, why hasn't NEK made a profile here on Snafu? Everyone else in Bleed's team did. I mean why wouldn't he? We're a bunch of cool guys.

Cerulean wrote:On the one hand, we could consider Aku-Blossom pairing happening in the GT timeline. Something happens, then deal is made with Him by Blossom. The thing that complicates this, however, is Aku's behavior towards Him presently. I don't sense any hostility from Aku towards Him (although this could just mean that Aku wasn't as into Blossom as she was him (or that he is a good actor (or that he wasn't involved with her in the first place)))).
Also there's the strong possibility that Aku really did love Blossom, but Him is lying to Aku about any number of things. Including who killed Blossom, and even the fact that Him and Blossom had sex at one point.
