In case you've been living under a rock and haven't already seen/downloaded Over The Garden Wall, CN is airing the series for a second time in it's entirety today at 5:30.

It's a fun and spooky ride, so hold on to your butts. Spoiler tag at your own discretion.

With the big role the lantern plays in this show, which corps would the characters belong to?
Beast = Sinestro Corps
Greg = Blue
Quincy = Orange

Beatrice says Wirt has no willpower, but he does overcome great fear, so I feel like that's a toss up for green.

Real spoilers ahead, proceed at your own risk.

Something I noticed on my second watch through with a friend who hasn't seen it.

When they're in the graveyard in episode 9, the only gravestone that actually has a legible name on it is Quincy Endicott, it's the one Greg was hiding behind. And then at the end of the series when they're going back over everyone's lives in the Unknown, you don't see Quincy, you only see the Lady looking at a portrait of him.

This led us to believe that Quincy died shortly after the events.

Well, that meshes pretty well with the idea that the Unknown is a kind of spirit world/limbo, meaning both Quincy Endicott and Maguerite Grey really are ghosts after all.

My guess is that the beast let him think that. If you tell a man his daughter's soul is "trapped" in the lantern, and then make him fight you for it, he'll spend the rest of his life working to keep it lit.

Why only Quincy thought? There's plenty of gravestones they could have names on but all of them are just scribbles except his. Admittedly, I didn't pore over every frame but I paused a considerable amount and didn't find anyone's name but his.

Presumably just a random throw back to establish that they where in an afterlife of sorts. I don't think that Endicott himself holds any significance. It could have been any name.

It could be just to hammer home the irony. He was mistakenly thought to be a ghost in the episode, but like everyone else in the Unknown, he was a spirit all along.

>>68444313
The portrait at the end is probably just a bookend to them showing the opposite in the episode itself, which focuses on Quincy and the portrait of Marguerite.

I always get a laugh out of that bit at the end where Auntie Whispers warns them about Adelaide, and Wirt's giving that look of "Yeah, we already went through all of that, she's dead". Like playing missions in an RPG out of sequential order and getting hints about a mission you've already completed.

I think that the turtles are agents of the beast. They act as his spies and can contaminate other living things when consumed as a whole. This is why the monster that Beatrice's dog turns into shares the same color eyes as The Beast. This is also why Auntie whispers only side effect is the staining in her mouth (she sucked the turtles out of their shells). Her being a witch could also help. On top of that, whenever the boys are close to turtles, the beast is shown to be following them.

Most popular explanation is that it's the afterlife/some kind of purgatory.

Secondary explanation is that it's a fae realm deal, a place where time isn't entirely linear, and you might cross paths with someone who comes from your far past or future.

Both have holes, and neither fully explains everything the brothers encounter.

Well, reality is an illusion, but the major problem with the purgatory theory is that you can die in the Unknown. And there are ghosts.

You also need to eat, sleep, etc.

If it was purgatory, you'd need to do none of those things, as you'd already be dead.

I think people who take the Unknown as purgatory, hell, heaven, the afterlife, or anything like that are completely missing the simple truth contained in its name: It's Unknown, as in no one fucking knows. It's just elsewhere, an unnamed place. Possibly magical, possibly real, possibly in our world, possibly not. It never explains itself and it never needs to, since that's not the point. It doesn't matter where or when they are, just that they are, period.

Of course the Unknown is real. If it wasn't, then it'd be a shaggy dog story and that clearly wasn't the case as the people in the unknown continued to have lives after the boys left.

I imagine the Unknown to be a place like Wonderland or Oz, though more accessible than either of them as there has clearly been immigration from the real world.

Or maybe the Unknown is easily accessed in some other universe, but difficult from our own.

There's nothing recent about it. Popularity is cyclical, but faerie stories have been omnipresent for thousands of years.

There's some kernel in the story of a faerie realm that resonates with people across all kinds of cultural borders.

"Prior to the late 19th century, night air was considered dangerous in most Western cultures. Based on “zymotic” theory, people believed vapors called “miasma” (plural "miasmata") rose from the soil and spread diseases. Miasmata came from rotting vegetation and foul water—especially in swamps and urban ghettos.

Many people, especially the weak or infirm, avoided breathing night air by going indoors and keeping windows and doors shut.

In addition to ideas associated with zymotic theory, there was also a general fear that cold or cool air spread disease.

The fear of night air gradually disappeared as understanding about disease increased as well as with improvements in home heating and ventilation.

Particularly important was the understanding that the agent spreading malaria was the mosquitoes (active at night) rather than miasmata."

Pretty wild how the act of staying indoors and shutting windows and doors actually had truth to it since it probably kept most mosquitoes out after all. This is why fairy tales have always been part of folklore across most civilizations - they are truth taken to a fantastical degree. Gossip, wife's tales, fairy tales, they all have a basis in truth pushed too far. The truth is grounding, the fantasy is compelling. That's why they resonate so intimately.

No current trends in faery tales.
Not faery tales.

A liminal place in our world leading across a boarder to a meta-liminal place that touches on several other "betweens."
"You have to go out the way you came in."
What you see there depends on what was happening here.
You have to commit a sin you were explicitly warned against to be taken by the Thing-that-take-Bad-Children.
Fey can't really hurt you unless someone gives them permission, but they can trick you into hurting yourself or others.
Fey have a collection of people that they have tricked into becoming objects.
Fey need to be perceived to be real, so they will trick you into watching them (lantern).

They are a explanation for science.
People insist on things having a REASON, but all observation actually gives us is a relationship.
Something is observed to be so...but no one cares, no one bothers to remember...because no one understands WHY.
Someone makes up a compelling reason WHY something is so, and people remember, people take heed...and the story takes on a life of it's own, maybe even eclipsing and drowning out the real reason, when it becomes known.
People call these things Truths as well.
Can we trust that it really is mosquitoes? Maybe that is just another compelling story explaining a mysterious fact...

There is no source for malaria other than parasites in mosquitoes, so any attempt to falsify that theory would fail.

The reason you're getting different answers than you expected is because those tropes have been present in faerie tales in some form or other for a very, very long time. The execution may have a modern twist, but the "rules" of Faerie are the same as they've ever been.

Show us an example of a faerie story that doesn't exhibit any of those tropes in some form.

Im so fucking mad, I set them to record because I had shit to do, and then the piece of shit COX box just went "Fuck you, queer" and didn't record them. I haven't even see past the second episode.
If it does the same thing tomorrow, i'm going to Jihad COX headquarters.

>There is no source for malaria other than parasites in mosquitoes, so any attempt to falsify that theory would fail.
but that's wrong, anon. it's only right until such time as it becomes wrong when they find something else. and then THAT will be right until they find some other something else.
in the end a theory is the same thing as a myth, something that explains something else.. a lie can explain things just as well as the truth, until you manage to poke a hole in it.

I just saw it just now for the very first time. That was really good, wow I don't think I remember seeing anything that was so rich in storytelling like OTGW did. I wish i could see it for the first time again.

Not a scientific theory, though. Myths aren't generally tested and tested to be true since a myth is widely someone one accepts as presented and extrapolates from there instead of trying to investigate and discover the truth behind it.

Now, if you're just talking about a plain old theory like, for example, I came up with the theory you're all the same person trying to trick me into believing I'm on a board with a multitude of people and you're really just an shady government operative trying to figure out what potentially anti-government opinions I may hold so you could make me vanish in the night, now that would be the same as a myth.

you can't test a theory, you can only test a hypothesis. a hypothesis is what, but a theory is always 'why'. an inherently imaginary concept.. there's no difference.
if you could test a theory, you would. instead you have to sit around til you find something that disproves it, because a theory is always an assertion of fact, so it's something disprovable. as is any myth.

My friends and I think that she was one of the lost souls fed into the lantern. Which means she became part of the Beast, which is why the Beast has faces all over, he's a conglomeration of all the lost souls that were turned into trees. So when the lantern was blown out and the Beast destroyed all those lost souls returned.

Which makes the Woodsmen even more tragic, he could have saved his daughter at any time.

I just rewatched the last episode and it appears she is of color. That makeup threw me off. My thinking was that Wirt liked Lorna because she looked like Sarah. I would of liked it better that way being like foreshadowing or something

Every appearance of Disney's version of Tinkerbell, since Peter Pan.
Kid Video.
Fairly Odd Parents.
The Smurfs.
Wynxs Club.
The film version of The Lion, The Witch and the Waredrobe (I'll grant that first is there, and that every one is in the books, especially the cronologicaly first story...but not the film).

Now if we go back to Oz, stuff like that survived from page to screen, but these days it's not even on the page...until recently.

Everyone dreams about stuff they've seen.

Even if it was the Beast, that dosen't mean that the imagery wasn't inspired by recent events and things he had seen.
