I think that jake knows more than we think in the episode "escape the citadel" Finns is wondering why his father left him in the forests and jake replies maybe he was ambushed by bandits because in the newest episode Joshua and Margaret jake was born before Finn was born and in the episode crystal apple when jake is dreaming about knocking out his brother I mean if Finn was there why wasn't he in the flash back and the Forrest they were fighting in looked like the Forrest that Finn was found in

It sounds like you’re suggesting that Jake knows about the circumstances under which Martin abandoned Finn in the forest when he was a little baby.

In Memories of Boom Boom Mountain, Finn’s memory shows us Joshua and Margaret -assumedly unintentionally- finding Finn in the woods after he’d been sitting in a pile of his own boom-boom for a day.

image

We don’t know how Finn knows he was alone for a whole day, but given the condition in which he was found, we don’t doubt that Joshua and Margaret could have figured out that he’d been alone for an extended period of time.

A baby can’t have survived in the woods on its own for very long, even such a buff baby [that can dance like a man] like Finn. We can speculate, rather confidently, that the day that had elapsed before Finn was found was the same day Martin left him there.

Martin is therefore unaccounted for the entire day in question after he was in the woods where J&M found Finn. And, given that we’re inclined to place J&M finding Finn AFTER Jake and Jermaine’s births due to Finn’s absence in the J&M Investigations flashback, the pups are unaccounted for as well. We can’t rule out that Martin had a run-in with them, doing whatever it was he was doing.

That being said, the pups were undeniably pretty young at the time - both are younger than Flame Princess, who is herself Finn’s age - but in dog years? They were apparently old enough to be left alone, but with so much still unclear, it’s hard to say whether Jake would even remember if he saw anything, let alone whether he DID actually see anything. But we CAN interpret his response when Finn tells him that Martin is alive.

image

If this isn’t genuine, then Jake is a master actor, because the voice acting here sounds like Jake is honestly taken aback. As the conversation continues, Jake takes an attitude of total support for his brother. He tests the water a bit, asking if Finn is gonna go see him, and it’s FINN who first suggests there’s a reason his father left him, guessing “he was probably captured by thieves and kept a slave for years.”

image

Does that sound like a confession to you? Either way, it’s not DEFINITELY a confession. He could just as well have been continuing his support by joining Finn in speculation. 
That being said, we don’t think Jake’s guess here is actually what happened. Leaving a baby ALONE in the WILDERNESS is NO WAY to protect it, no matter the threat. Plus, if Finn was alone for a day, Jake would not have actually been a witness at the moment Martin left him.

There are a lot of leaps of faith to be made in this theory, but we don’t have hard evidence to refute it right now. Maybe they revisit it and show it to be true, or maybe they drop it and these coincidences are just coincidences.

I really like Jake a lot as a character but lately they seem to showing his darker side quite a bit rather than just poking fun about it. Do you think that this is foreshadowing or just showing that even happy go lucky characters can be bad?

I feel like they do this to give the characters more depth. A lot of them are deeper than we think rather than continue with the same troupe.(i.e the damsel in distress, the hero, the villain, etc.)

That episode of "Joshua and Margaret Investigations" was amazing. It answered some questions about Jake's parents, but it also left us with new unanswered questions. What do you think?

I think this was a very good episode for more backstory. We not only got to see how Jake actually got his powers, but we were able to see what some of the cities looked like after creatures repopulated them in some way.

Do you think it is possible that Joshua got involved with keoth because he was trying to find out what the creature that "impregnated" him was?

 No, they knew who Kee-Oth was before they actually encountered the creature that helped create Jake. You can see in, “Joshua and Marget Investigations,” that they already know about Kee-Oth, but not the creature.

Margaret’s bunker already contains Kee-Oth’s demon blood sword, as well.

What we can speculate about is whether or not Joshua decided to go after the shapeshifter to learn more about Jake.

This is just a reminder that it can take days, weeks, or even months for us to address your submissions/asks

Also, we haven’t had a clear inbox in a decently long time due to a high volume of messages and an attempt to answer questions in a strategic order.

Sorry about that

I’m saying this because we’ve received a bit of spam recently.  It takes more than a day to get some asks, especially with school starting this week.  If we haven’t answered your question but you’re SUPER eager to get an answer, please look around the blog or Adventure Time wiki and see if that helps you out.

Thank you

Do you have any theories on how Joshua got involved with Kiosk?

I’m guessing you’re phone autocorrected Kee-Oth?

We don’t have anything yet, but we’re always open to submissions

I'm still confused about the fry event that happened with marcelene and her father. Is the song about the actual fries or about marcelenes father and there problems?

It’s about the issues Marceline has with her father because of the fries she bought and they were hers. Yeah, he ate them. He ate her fries, and she cried but he didn’t see her cry.

image

Does he even love her? Well, she wishes he’d show it ‘cuz she wouldn’t know it. What kind of dad eats her daughter’s fries and doesn’t look her in the eyes? There were tears there. If he saw them, would he even care?

Does tree trunks still have the lich that turned into a baby?

We’ve only seen present-day Tree Trunks once in any episode this season after she found the Lich on her doorstep in the premiere.

image

This scene doesn’t give any indication whether they’ve kept the Lich all this time or not. Seeing as it’s dark out, their baby would understandably be in bed, asleep. [Ice King also drinks Ron James’ potion and switches heads with the Ancient Sleeping Magi of Life Giving, but that switch is resolved by the end of the episode. We expect Tree Trunks and Ron James are back to normal, too.]

image

That being said, we have no reason to believe that they didn’t bring the baby in and aren’t still raising it as their own. We definitely think the writers plan to develop that situation on-screen.

I thought Koschei the Deathless was Slavic mythology not Russian mythology

Wikipedia does list him as a character from Slavic Folklore, but I first heard of him in a book of Russian fairytales.
We aren’t experts on this subject. Sorry.

Margaret might be Molly and Joshua might be James from the Valley of Fear?

The three of us haven’t read Sherlock Holmes, so we’ll take your word for it. Another anon in the inbox had the same idea, but again, not really an explanation to go along with it.

Margaret’s book on poisons says “one character in an Arthur Conan Doyle story,” so making that assumption might not be too far off.

Furthermore, the wikia states that “Joshua and Margaret are a homage to Nick and Nora Charles from The Thin Man book and film series of the 1930’s and 1940’s,” (which is kind of obvious considering their style of speaking).  Of course, a reference to one thing doesn’t cancel out another.

Anyone else have something to input?

I love mythology, and while watching adventure time I always loved the ice king although i couldnt quite lay my finger on why. And then It hit me. You see in russian mythology there is an immortal ice wizard with a huge beard that kidnaps women to be his bride because he is lonely. He is shown in the myths only on occasion as evil, hes generally considered an okay guy. Koschei the deathless. and then bamn, simon PETRIKOV, a russian. I just thought it was so cool when it all clicked.

This is really cool!  I remember reading about Koschei in this book I have of illustrations of Russian fairy tales.  Thanks for sharing!!
