What would happen if Hunter wasn’t able to fight back for long enough? This. Would this be extremely upsetting in canon? Yes. That’s why it’s an AU (thankfully).

Conversation
Luz: You know, if an adult is a nice person that’s not “innocence.” They learned how to actively be a good person. They’re not some eternal child
Luz: Also I’m gonna be real why is it that being nice in general is seen as a childish or immature trait?
Phillip: Because being nice gets you taken advantage of a lot more than being an asshole. It makes you naive. Like a child
Luz: You’re right, “I like to be mean because it benefits me. Being nice is for babies” is a very mature attitude

Poor Fanon Philip. Man has no clue the kinda sociopath he's just attached himself to.

What are your thoughts on Racist Goop Man as a villain? I've seen (bad) takes that him just being pure evil makes him a boring villain and they liked him and the mystery surrounding him better before Hollow Mind, and takes saying he had no depth or complexity before Hollow Mind revealed just how much of a bastard he is. Only thing they seem to agree on is fuck him, lol.
My thoughts are that Philip Wittebane is one of the best villains in media. Full-stop.
He's not pure evil, he's not boring - but he's so fucking twisted that he believes every single one of his actions is justified and necessary. He doesn't see the Boiling Isles residents as actual people; they're just demonic entities that he has to expel, and he can't be wrong, because if he's wrong then he's spent all of four-hundred years of grieving Caleb for nothing.
He was interesting before Hollow Mind because he's a manipulative abuser, and he's interesting after Hollow Mind because everything he does is for The Greater Good and I fucking love him so much he's such a good fucking villain and if ToH sticks the landing on him with how he dies (which I have no doubt they will), it's going to be legendary.

This Belos Essay is Gross
I fully admit I did this to myself. I voluntarily went HEY you know what animates me like a vengeful eidolon to the point where I could chew solid stone while laughing? Ragging on the history of Christianity in America! Oh look! A cute gay show about disabled witches sticking it to Puritan Cult-Peddling Murder Grandpa (also known as Ash's personal bugbear)? SIGN ME UP? Lets dissect this dreadful son of a bitch in the context of his theological bullshit!
But then I get to the parts where I have to think about Belos and all the Grimwalkers and its sicker the more I think about it. Everyone knows of course its just. The depth of the violation and desecration and depravity in its own context is Beyond Grotesque.
I'll elaborate more on this later, but Puritans were obsessed with how a person's remains were kept. This scabrous donkey's bastard was mutilating the unburied remains of the brother he murdered for 400 years. The thing that makes me insane is that any attempts to tell himself "I'm saving your soul, Caleb" had to have petered out pretty quick in that process. He discards the Christian name. Starts calling them all Hunter. Witch Hunter, a title, a job description, a fucking factory tag. He even started branding them after a while, which we know now is a death sentence no matter how perfectly obedient they could have hoped to be. He knows he's not saving Caleb. He's farming the experience of his death.

"I'm starting to think you make those things just to destroy them."
Belos demurs, "Of course I don't, Collector. It hurts every time he chooses to betray me."
The fact they included this line from the Collector--someone who has observed and gleefully enabled this sick fuck for centuries--seems to suggest Belos' denial here is a weak one.
He does enjoy it! They show us! As soon as Luz and Hunter enter the mindscape, he goes out of his way to sabotage Hunter's loyalty. He gleefully drags the kids around, building up the reveals that will make Luz crumple to her knees and destroy Hunter's entire world. The timing. The showmanship of it all. He smiles when he flicks Hunter's little forelock.

"What a shame. Of all the Grimwalkers, you looked the most like him :)"
Tumblr media Tumblr media
These are the words he intends to kill this kid by. The dude has been playing this game for CENTURIES and still enjoys the process of torturing them before he slaughters them. How many Grimwalkers died with some variation of "What? Who is Caleb?" on their lips--but the part that haunts me are the ones who lived long enough to say "Sorry" before they were killed. Phillip isn't saving Caleb's soul, he's punishing him over and over.
So why does he do this? How does the Puritan part factor into it? Other than the pleasure of murder that is. It makes me think of how the main purpose of missionaries is to experience rejection. Particularly when it comes to sending kids out from the church. The purpose of the whole affair there is to reinforce that The World Bad, and Rejects the Word of God, and the Only REAL community you have is the Church. They understand you. This creates not just the insulation that gives them a chance to practice the script of the Rejected Religious Warrior, but create distance from reality.
Belos has been working on the worlds most horrible DIY project. He's been doing it for 400 years. What on earth can sustain that laser focus, him working while his body monsterizes and turns to evil Ghibli goo around him? Man hasn't eaten real food in 400 years.

His brother's death! The point of no return in Phillips villain origin (inciting incident: the moment Caleb fell for Evelyn). Each incarnation is going to to have a witch's pointed ears and the Grimwalkers pink eyes, wear different scars that Belos himself stuck there, but it's still his face. Sure it's a younger face than Caleb had when HE died, but at this point it hardly matters. Phillip is farming Caleb's death to re-inspire the moment where genocide entered his heart. These witches have taken you from me, Caleb. I'll make them all pay.
But first, I'll make YOU pay.
This bitch was going to take time out of the Day of Unity to kill Hunter if he got him. My god. Given that he was pressed for time I like to think it would have been quick but god if this is any indication...ugh.
I feel gross! 8)
