have you heard the theory that calliope is lord english?? i actually like that theory more than i like caliborn as lord english

man that theory is seriously terrible in my opinion. it sounds like a majorly fanfic-y whAT A TWIST!!!!!! that i just don’t think andrew would do.

'sides, calliope has been characterized to represent all of the “good” fans of things, people who benevolently enjoy shipping and fanfics and fanart, and caliborn has been characterized to represent “bad” fans that are incredibly misogynistic and borderline sociopathic in how they treat other people on the internet.

if andrew made calliope into LE, the Big Bad, he’d be communicating a message that i think he’s far too self-aware to actually make.

  2. haggady said: that theory doesn’t make sense because the meenah games confirmed that caliborn is LE and calliope is LE’s sister
