We don't talk enough about how Splatoon and Pikmin are both canonically set on a post apocalyptic Earth.
Like, humanity wipes itself out or dies off and what's left is either some tiny lil plant dudes and their many predators, or sea life that has evolved to take a more humanoid form.
But what if both are true?
In Pikmin 3, the map of the Earth is based on Pangaea Ultima- which is a projection of what the continents will look like in however many millions of years time, but Splatoon is definitely closer in the future than that, based on plenty of in game lore.
So what if it's the same world? One where far, far further in the future, when everything resembling the sea creatures in Splatoon have either gone extinct or evolved, Pikmin start to emerge and the whole microscopic ecosystem of the Pikmin series takes shape.
There's no real evidence to support this theory but there's no real evidence debunking it either so it's my nice little headcanon.
And who knows? Maybe when Nintendo finally releases Pikmin 4, one of the treasures we have to collect will look familiar to fans of Splatoon? Maybe it's one of the fake Zapfish plushies, or a Splat Bomb, or who knows what?
Just a little thought :)

1. what fandoms have you written for (but do not currently)?
a lot! i'll spare you the full list but it's mostly anime and indie games
2. what fandoms are you currently writing for?
just bts at the moment
3. how long have you been writing?
uhhh taking a few long-ish breaks into account, i think it'll add up to somewhere between 10-15 years? but i started off very young. as in, it's barely an exaggeration to say i started writing stories ever since i could, well, write lmao (...i had a very encouraging mum)
4. on which platforms do you post your stories?
tumblr and ao3
5. what is your favourite genre to write?
in a shocking turn of events that surprises absolutely no one; scifi and historical au's 🥰🥰🥰
6. are you a pantser or a planner?
i work best with an outline to go on, but deviate as necessary. so it's a bit of both, though i definitely lean harder to the planner side; if i don't have a plan (no matter how badly i keep to it), i don't finish
7. one shot or multi-chapter?
they each have their own appeal but for new projects i definitely try to stick with one shots. one multi-chapter wip is more than enough!
8. what is the perfect chapter length in your opinion?
gonna plagiarise m's answer here; when the chapter is finished.
9. what is your longest published story? is it complete?
to measure time in light-years is ~67k (excluding the bonuses), and im about halfway ._.
10. which story did you enjoy working on the most?
ohhh i really loved writing dizzy with you for a number of reasons!! the era, the slang, the heartache, just to name a few ;;
at first i went back-and-forth on the plot, but after giving into vmin (the setting was intended for namjoon yall 😭) and getting rid of an unnecessarily complicated plot-twist, the outline became super clear! there were a lot of vivid images in my head of scenes and dialogue, and once i started writing i only deviated from the outline once (to add the horse track scene towards the end). i wouldn't say it was easy but in a way, it was very relaxing to write
11. favourite request you’ve written and why?
tbh i haven't done any requests in years. i used to have a lot of fun with prompt lists tho, maybe i should start that up again 🤔
12. are there recurring themes in your stories?
i have a thing for conveying the deepening intimacy between characters by making the switch between their family or given name (you can take the writer out of the regency, but you can't take the regency out of the writer. given names are intimate af)
13. current number of wips?
narrowing it down to the ones im sort-of working on, there's four.
14. three things you have noticed about your own writing?
repetition is something i really need to improve on
for historical au's, it's fun to try and blend my own style with something that feels era-appropriate and not to toot my own horn, but i feel like ive gotten better at it since coming into this fandom
filler words the bane of my existence!!
15. a quote you like from a published story.
a bit of a throw-back, this is from andante cantabile. the first dancing scene between jimin and the reader, the scene that almost made me chuck the entire plot in the bin and ditch poor yoongi to write a mutual pining/childhood friends to lovers fic instead 😩
When you returned to Park’s side, he was quick to see how his remark had affected you. A rueful smile tugged at his lips and he squeezed your hand as you circled around each other. “Don’t pay me any mind,” he said. “Clearly I have turned into an old man already, sentimental about my wasted youth.”
That made you laugh. “Don't even say that! You are younger than me,” you pointed out. “What does that make me then?”
“An elderly spinster,” he grinned, relishing your affronted gasp.
16. a quote from an unpublished story.
a first draft from the jungkook/reader regency!au;
Your brother's eyes fell meaningfully on friends Park and Jeon, who made their rounds greeting acquaintances and prospective dance partners. Park Jimin was a charming fellow, though notoriously flippant. Quick to capture hearts, slow to break them. His five thousand pounds per year tempted young ladies as much as his handsome face did, leaving a trail of lovelorn maidens behind every summer. So you did what any sensible girl would do; keep a polite distance.
Your relationship with Jeon Jungkook was simpler, yet more complicated. Proud and aloof, thinking himself above others just because he was set to inherit a viscountship from his uncle.
Any sensible girl would keep a polite distance.
i love/hate this part because 1) im really looking forward to the character development of both jk and the reader and 2) jimin continues his proud tradition of trying to seduce me into yeeting all original plans through the window and make him the LI 😫
(seriously! he brought the pain of 'dizzy with you' all onto himself!!)
17. a space for you to say something to your readers.
for someone who claims to 'write', i am awful at expressing just how much i appreciate you all. im not good at taking a compliment gracefully so i feel like my thanks always comes out a bit stilted and awkward—but i hope you all know that i love you, and am incredibly thankful for the support.
this is only a tiny blog i'm running here, but you all give me the encouragement to keep posting my content, you make me feel connected to a bigger world out there
and maybe that sounds a little cheesy, but as someone who has been stuck at home with chronic health issues for well over two years now, i cannot understate how much i value that connection. so thank you ♡
tagging: a few writer moots, including some i haven't talked to in a while (i hope you're all doing well and thriving💜) @bangtanmademedoit, @joonscypher, @jungkooksbroski, @coepiteamare, @yeojaa
