So if you could have a Stand, what would it be?
That’s kind of a dirty question, because according to JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure as we know it, you don’t get to choose your Stand. It’s a reflection of you. Granted that reflection tends to be tailor-made to suit the Stand user personality-wise, but it’s like the X-Men: you make do with what you’ve got, because what you’ve got is…well, you. Still, there’s a ton of allure in imagining what it’d be like to have your own ghostly companion. I’ve certainly indulged.
I’ll hold off on describing my ideal Stand for now, because that’d take a bit of time, I haven’t completely nailed it down, and (since this is the intro) there’s a lot of more relevant ground to cover. I can tell you right now that it’s not too dissimilar from Echoes in Diamond is Unbreakable, barring some stuff that I’m pretty sure counts as a spoiler or eight. So let’s go back to talking about Stardust Crusaders for the third and final time. The premise? I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Stands in Part 3 are an embodiment of what you want to be, but fail to be.
And I’ll drive that point home one last time…with spoilers aplenty. But then again, is there any better way to celebrate Thanksgiving Day than with theory-crafting for JoJo? Probably. Also, I hope I didn’t date this post super-hard.
