omfg no not offensive, that’s not it!
I don’t think my opinion on shipping was asked, but what do u want to know about it? if you want to talk to me about shipping though you’d better head on to my personal since that’s not really relevant to this blog..)
your question was if you are “supposed” to ship gyarrivu (Ib/Garry), and I don’t want anyone to feel that they are being mandated to like/dislike a thing just because other people do. No one is forcing you into anything so I don’t want people claiming that that’s what shippers have been doing because that’s not it at all
I guess a lot of other people actively agree to that as well, I’m surprised to see that last post actually got notes!
You’re not “supposed" to do anything
What you are “supposed" to do is to just be enjoying Ib with everyone else
There’s not anything anyone is “supposed" to like or dislike in order to be in the fandom
And no one should suppose otherwise

Most probably! I remember how Garry once mentioned how skinny Ib looked
puchinadventure said: I think he’s 21, since it’s stated he’s an adult and adulthood is 21 at Japan
Yeah I think that would make the most sense. (In fact, before the Ib pixiv wiki came out with the age info the most popular headcanon for Garry was that he’s 21)
(no trusting them youtube videos!)
kouri really does make Garry look like a teenager in his drawings, doesn’t he?? Some people were even pushing it and saying he could be a high schooler when the game first came out haha
It was stated on the Ib pixiv wiki :o Unfortunately, kouri doesn’t mention Garry’s age anywhere on his blog as far as I know!
(I’m pretty sure the number of rose petals don’t correspond to age, though. It wouldn’t make sense for an elderly man to have a bouquet of roses whereas a younger, fitter man would have less)
Nope! There is absolutely no assurance that Garry=Guertena. Be careful of the Ib fandom on youtube, they are notorious for making false statements “with complete assurance” without any real knowledge of what they are saying. I once saw a comment on a video asserting, with absolute certainty, that Garry is 16 years old, which is not true at all! (Garry is 20 years old.)
In fact, it would make less sense for them to be the same person because it begs several questions, such as how could he be alive? why couldn’t he appreciate his works of art? why couldn’t he recognize them as their creator? just to state a few. And it would be a bit fallacious to say that Garry’s “knowledge of the art is so full”, because in fact, if you still remember Garry’s remarks on each of the artworks in the gallery, he could hardly understand any of the pieces at all! (￣∇￣)／
Actually, a more plausible theory would be that Garry is actually Guertena’s grandson. This would explain him knowing which year “Juggling” was created, which was said in the game to be a portrait of a juggler Guertena saw in a circus with his grandchild.
People have come up with a lot of Garry=Guertena theories (I’ve made a few of them myself hihi), but making them fit into the puzzle makes things a bit more complex. This of course, definitely makes the game more interesting. After all, it might explain why Garry and Ib were able to get into the horror gallery when the others couldn’t, probably. But the biggest qualms I have when pondering on Garry=Guertena theories is whether they would be something kouri himself would have come up with.
Regardless though, such theories are always the most fun to talk about! (◕ヮ◕)
Following up on Anon’s recent confession, I think we should maybe try to become more of a community! I feel as though it’s not really that intimidation perhaps, but it’s more that no one really talks to one another in general. I’m not entirely sure how we can work on becoming more of an inviting community, but it’s definitely something we should aspire to!
THIS THIS THIS EXACTLY
You know what that’s a REALLY great idea! (´･ω･`)
I have actually been thinking of something like that for sometime, an Ib prompt week ya know like what the SNK fandom is all up to lately
It’s less heavy than an Ib Month challenge and more flexible than an art meme.
Unfortunately I will most definitely be busy in February. :( I wonder if someone else can host that instead?? But for now if I ever plan an Ib-themed week it’d probably be for another time! >_o Hnnng.
Oh hello! New, eh? I’m so sorry you had to find my blog while the fandom is in such a slump haha sob
Anyway, here are the headcanons currently revealed from asks answered so far (not in any particular order):
Other important info implied/shown/stated as canon:
I’ll add in more if I remember any, but you’ve reminded me to put up that headcanons/faq page that I keep putting off ;u; So, maybe I’ll get around to doing that instead, maybe… haha
uhhhm I can’t very well answer this since that isn’t what she actually says in the game….
