    Matpat, i dont really know if you have adressed this before( yes, I went and looked all the videos) and from what I know, you have never really introduced the idea that maybe the reason why the lore book asks:" do you remember your name" is because Michael( crying child) might have never been his child from the beginning.How come do we not know that the bite of 83 was William Afton's intentions to take away sammy( henry's kid) from him as retribution from baby killing elizabeth? Its possible that William knew about this since Henry's kid, Charlotte was built as a robot and also that different memories could have been faked to say that his name is Michael....It makes sense since him escaping from his place( henry's house) because of William's help.... also, have you noticed that the crying child did not have friends at his supposedly "birthday party"? I will also assume that the one who brought friends and actually had fun at the place was foxy bro....mmmmm sorry if im wrong

    To the Dalton White comment: Bulbasaur isn't the best and no Pokémon is the best but in the Kabto starter trio, you could say it's either a tie or a win for Charizard. 1st of all, Leech Seed and Sleep Powder isn't even that good if the opponent can outspeed and OHKO Venusaur. Sure, it got Growth and Giga Drain and all but then again, a Flying type move doesn't get affected in Generations 1-3 since all damage dealing Flying moves dealt physical damage and Giga Drain will deal 4x resisted damage to Charizard and Synthesis healing damage gets cancelled by super effective damage anyways unless they are in the sun but then again Fire type attacks become stronger now. While Blastoise is a Water type and I do love Water types, I have to admit that Charizard can outspeed it and deal big damage to Blastoise before fainting and using a revenge killer, or just straight up make Blastoise faint. And with Megas, Mega Venusaur has Thick Fat, sure but you know Charizard can learn a Flying type move. Venusaur can benefit from Mega Y with the Drought but only when it is in its regular form. Even if it was in its Mega form, Mega-Saur still gets super effective damage since the harsh sunlight cancels out most or if not all the Thick Fat. Mega Y can also use instantaneous Solar Beam on Mega Blastoise. Mega X is much better with DD to use its ability which powers up contact moves. Charizard finally becomes a Dragon type making the Water type deal neutral damage to it and it can wall Grass types just as easy a before with buffed stats. And if someone dares to use Rock Slide or Stone Edge, it can, you know, switch to a Pokémon which can wall a Rock move. Sorry it had to come to this, but Charizard was the winner here.

    Just A Person3 soat oldin

    Yo what if the reason Steve pops into existence the way he does when you boot up a game is because he was a zombie? You can cure a zombie villager, but not the ones who were once builders. What if the reason that is true is because Steve is the only case of that happening? What if that's why Steve is "the last builder"? Because he's the only zombie to have ever been cured Edit: not to mention how it fits into the theory. Steve couldn't have inherited immunity from a race that's been extinct for centuries, but he also couldn't have been a part of said race. Unless he's been around for centuries, as the undead. If he was cured of the zombie virus, then he would have the antibodies necessary to fight it, which would also explain why Steve doesn't have the 50% zombification rate that villagers do. It would also explain why we, the player, have no memories or home when the game gets booted up, because we've been rotting that whole time before hand

    Maybe the story in non canon or the story that scott orignally wanted to create when he made fnaf but decided not to. We know from the newspapers in fnaf that the purple guy was arrested(which is probably not true anymore) and it is very like he was also arrested in this story. Maybe all Scott wanted to tell us was that the missing children incident took place in 1985 and nothing more.
