Hey guys, it’s Happyhappy760 here, and some of you may of seen me from the PHC or around the PHB comments section. Please don’t visit my blog. (It’s dead.)
Anyway, I’m sure that all of us sometime or another have visited these particular islands: Time Tangled, Monkey Wrench, and Early Pop. Now, there’s something in common between all these islands… Guess!
They all play a part in the beginning of Poptropica! (If you got that wrong, wamp, wamp, waaamp. Unless you found another thing in common. But that’s not what we’re talking about.) Monkey Wrench Island shows how the blimp was made, Early Poptropica shows were Poptropica all began, and Time Tangled allows you to go back in time to before Poptropica was created.
Part 1: The Conflicting Timeline of Islands
So, you may be thinking,”Happy, you need to tell us what this is about!!” Okay, I’ll tell you. This is where everything comes together. First, think about the islands and time. Think back to when there were like, three islands. (Ahh, the good old days… sorta.) There was NO Monkey Wrench.
We started with Early Pop, with no blimp at first, but the blimp later appeared when other islands showed up. The pilgrims settled down in Ameri– ahem, Poptropica. But in Monkey Wrench, the monkeys make the blimp.
Then in Time Tangled, you go back before Early Pop began. And Early Pop started in 1982, according to the pilgrims’ sign! In Time Tangled, Leonardo Da Vinci was born in 1452. According to the Shark Tooth museum, Professor Hammerhead died at 77! 1982 was NOT 77 years ago! (Although at some point it will be. But right now, it’s not.) So if all these timelines are getting mixed up, Poptropica is basically one big Time Tangled Island! But… there’s a catch.
Part 2: The Blimp is a Time Machine, and Poptropica was established as an entity following the existences of ancient world civilizations.
The blimp. It could be a time machine in itself! It allows you to go to different times! Even in Poptropica’s earlier days, you had the blimp, but what if you were from the future, and the blimp took you back in time?! As Poptropica evolved into more and more islands, and SUIs, your blimp made its way back to the future! In the future, where it came from, Monkey Wrench Island was there, and maybe that’s where the blimp came from.
Now, notice how Time Tangled goes back in time before Poptropica’s settlers settled down (when you use the mini time device to travel to ancient civilizations). But look at real world events, people! There were people in ancient civilizations before America became a country! It could be the same with Poptropica! (Just that Poptropica sort of replicated real world events.)
Also, maybe the reason you didn’t use your blimp to get around Time Tangled Island is just because it’s an island. It’s too big to fit in the lab, and it’s too big to take back to certain times. Besides, if you took it back to those other time periods, some Poptropicans would think it was an enemy spirit or something, and destroy it. Then how would you get to the different islands?
Part 3: Crusoe and the Grecian warrior on Shark Tooth
And remember that warrior on Shark Tooth? Maybe Crusoe from Monkey Wrench is his descendant! ‘Cause what if the warrior hung onto your blimp and follow you to Shark Tooth?
I’m sorry, that doesn’t make sense. Kind of. But we don’t know where Crusoe went after we landed on Home Island. Maybe he went to Shark Tooth (he does have that jungle aesthetic) and settled there. So… yeah. I’m getting ahead of myself.
(My Photoshop paint job. It could be worse! :P)
But there’s one thing I can’t figure out… If the Early Pop pilgrims are the earliest settlers of Poptropica, then who are these guys who supposedly come before their time?
If you can figure this one out, good for you. But that’s my Popspiracy, and I hope you enjoyed!
P.S. Don’t forget to be happy.
