The things described in this article are still happening, so it may be subject to frequent change.
- For the video where Chris talks about the merge, see Dimensional Merge Announcements.
The Dimensional Merge is the event in which Chris believes that "Dimension 1218" and "Dimension C-197" – respectively, the universe of real life, and the parallel universe where Sonichu and fictional characters live – will combine, bringing fictional characters into reality. Chris is convinced that he is the designated liaison of the event and will become a deity as a result, giving the appearance of a doomsday cult leader.
The idea was put into his head by trolls. A Teen Troon Squad member claimed it originated with the Idea Guys, but added, "we discouraged the idea at first", implying that they later began encouraging Chris to believe in the merge.
The Merge was expected to take place by the end of December 2018. Naturally, when New Year's came and went, Chris began backpedaling but remained insistent that the Merge would occur.
Chris has always believed that an alternative dimension where every fictional character exists. Throughout 2017, Chris appeared convinced by the Idea Guys that the Sonichu and Hyperdimension Neptunia universes actually existed, but in a separate dimension.
In July 2018, Chris tweeted at Marvel writer Seanan McGuire, asking him to confirm the "dimension number" of "this Earth". McGuire responded with "Earth 1218", and later clarified that this was the Marvel universe's designation for the real universe. Chris took it as gospel, and subsequently uses "1218" to refer to the actual, existing universe. Weeks later, McGuire reiterated once again that everything was imaginary, but Chris' response to McGuire and various trolls indicates that he still believes that people such as McGuire can communicate with other dimensions.
Relation to Financhu Crisis
Chris believes that he is wealthy in CWCville, and that when the dimensions merge, he will have access to his money there and he able to pay off his current, real-world debts with it. He has asked to borrow money from people, claiming he will pay back ten times the amount once the merge concludes, not realizing he sounds like a more autistic version of the nigerian prince scam.
On 8 October, Chris tweeted:
|Sometimes I just want to Give Up - but my Loves won't Let Me. If people could help us here, in This World, Monetarily, we would be Okay. I promise all of you, that when That Day Comes, I will reimburse you, Personally, in the Nation of Cwcville.|
He followed up on 23 October with:
|When the worlds merge I will have access to TONS of savings in Cwcville. It is a lot of money; indeed. 10:1 is my repayment rate!|
On 24 September 2018, Chris was sued by Second Round Sub for unpaid debt, and on 23 October 2018, Midland Funding followed suit. The case for the former was postponed to January, but the verdict on the Midland case was read on 19 December 2018, requiring Chris to pay $2,777.90 at 6% interest and $55 in court costs.
Remarkably, he has done little begging in the wake of the lawsuits, instead preferring to stick his head in the sand and pretend that the Merge will solve all his problems for him.
Beliefs on the Merge
Chris announced the event on 14 October 2018. On 26 October 2018, Chris posted a video entitled "Dimensional Merge Announcements" where he outlined the process of 1218 merging with its "sister dimension" C197, where every fictional character known to exist resides. He believes that once the merge occurs, Earth will be shared by humans and various characters. He clarified that the merge will cause extensive loss of life on both sides, such as the deaths of almost half of Earth's population.
Naturally, he believes that he will be guaranteed survival because he "absorbed the spiral seal" from his Sega Dreamcast and is therefore the middleman between the two dimensions. He believes that himself and Megan are basically deities, and that he will gain superpowers following the merge because of his belief that he is half-Sonichu.
He sent dozens of follow-up tweets further detailing the process, explaining that Cwcville would replace northern Virginia and Gotham City will replace a portion of New Jersey. He explained that this will resemble a natural disaster scenario and that mass evacuations may occur during the merge.
On 18 November 2018, Chris announced that the Merge had begun. This date coincides with the anniversary of the Jonestown mass suicide, implying that the Idea Guys had originated the Merge concept, as their calling card was inserting infamous historical dates into CWCville lore.
In early December 2018, Chris reported feeling "psychic headaches" and associated the merge with the California wildfires and the romaine lettuce recall. As the merge drew closer, he claimed to have "lightning powers" and that the "millions of volts" of electricity in his head is evidence that he is half-Sonichu.
He estimated that the merge would conclude by year's end
Magi-Chan doxxing incident
On Christmas 2018, someone claiming to be Magi-Chan logged into Chris's Twitter, posting a Pastebin dump containing the dox of one of the Teen Troon Squad's members. They also stated that the Merge would actually take place in 20 years due to time dilation, and that Sonichu residents of C-197 would need to hibernate until then.
|Hello everyone! It is I, Magi-Chan Sonichu. I read the password for this account from Chris' mind.
As you all know, the merge will be happening soon.
I currently have Lukas (my host body) in a trance, so they won't remember typing this out.
The final stage of the merge will involve everyone in our universe disconnecting from your universe. We will go silent. We must hibernate to tug the universes together.
I have really enjoyed my time in your universe. I want to give thanks to my host body in your world, [redacted]. (Legal name: [redacted].) I want everyone to know what a gracious host they were. Lukas and Christine and I (and some of our friends) had lots of fun hanging out with Christine and smoking weed. We used to do it in their old house, but she just moved to a new house at [redacted]. I'm sad I won't be able to smoke weed there until after the merge. If you want to give Lukas a call to let her know how cool she is, she'd really appreciate it. Her number is [redacted].
Her mother Tara raised a brilliant young person. Her mother is also very progressive. I mean, who would have the courage to let their child spend their time smoking weed with someone like Christine, who's nearly twice their age? A really brave mother, that's who.g
Lukas is a really cool person. If you want to end up as brilliant as Lukas, you should also spend a lot of time opening your mind by role playing and smoking weed with cool people like Christine.
Anyhoo, praise be for my gracious host aside, here's how the merge will go down:
Because of time dilation though, it will take a little bit longer in Earth 1218. By your human calendar in that universe, the merge should be complete by the end of 2038. 2018 here, 2038 in 1218.
In 20 short years, you should start seeing manifestations of what you people so cynically call "fictional characters". You might literally shit your panties when you see Bugs Bunny in real life! (But be polite, he looks a little rough. Makeup on television can work wonders.)
Goodbye for now!
Chris later dismissed the news as fake.
Naturally, New Year's Eve of 2019 was an eagerly awaited moment as the final chance for the cataclysm to occur. In the early morning hours of 1 January 2019, Chris spoke out on Twitter in a New Year's address, explaining that the Merge had not happened on time due to "red tape", betraying some internal bureaucracy in the process of becoming the tranny-goddess of 80s computers.
He remained insistent that the event would still occur, adding in reassurances that the Sonichu-verse was still "Awake" to remind everyone of the Magi-chan doxxing's non-canon status.
|Good New Year, Everyone. I shall make my statement for now, and I Want No Backtalk Or Hateful Commentary.
The Dimension Merge of C-197 and our 1218 is still in progress. There is more damn red tape to work through, but our goal is still set; it is only delayed.
Everyone of C-197 is still very much Awake; we have secured Arfoire in a magic-proof cell a few days ago. Not even that Witch’s Courier on Facebook can say otherwise, because I Know Better, and her words shall never get to or sway me any other way.
I still remain the CPU Blue Heart of the Commodore Consoles, Cwcville and Comma, and Everyone is safe and well. But for now, I shall delay online talk of the Dimension Merge through my Social Media Accounts until further notice.
And I still remain very much married to Magi-Chan Sonichu, Cryzel Rosechu, Sylvana Rosechu, and Mewtwo; there is room for at least one from this Dimension, but there is no rush.
For now, Happy New Year, Everyone.
The context behind Chris's aside about Arfoire was revealed in screencaps Lukas leaked on /cow/. In them, a person purporting to be the Arfoire-possessed Jessica Quinn PMs Chris over Facebook, saying she had tricked Chris into believing in the Merge:
However, the attached post from Lukas suggests that Lukas had been posing as Quinn in an attempt to pass the blame onto her:
|I’m not even the one who started the merge thing I just tricked my moms sugar daddy into buying Chris’s porn shit here’s screenshots Chris sent to me of texts from Jessica Quinn pretty sure she’s the one|
Despite Chris stating that he would abstain from talking about the Merge online until further notice, he went on to mention it the following day while writing about the
health problems "superpowers" that he got from it.
On 4 January 2019, Chris said that he was awaiting further information on the merge, more indication that the entire merge event had been scripted and fed to him by trolls who were no longer in the picture.
—Chris, Jackson Dalton interview
Particularly troubling about Chris's comment that is that he wants more information in order to verify that his delusional thoughts are real. By admitting this, he highlights a path for new trolls to get into his head, showing he failed to learn from the Idea Guys saga.
Continued hope in the merge
After the first deadline for the merge had passed, Chris remained optimistic that the merge would still happen at some point.
While he was initially quiet about it, he began ramping up the rants about the merge again around spring.
On 31 March, he tweeted:
|The #DimensionMerge is still happening and going on. C-197 plus 1218 = 1C-211987. OCs are really becoming more obvious here; there are even sightings of a Dio blonde vampire in Egypt. Descendants, Beware! Dio is coming after you all.|
Several events around this timeframe give context for Chris's renewed interest in the merge:
- Earlier in March 2019, after Chris was gifted a Nintendo Switch, he developed an obsession with playing the augmented reality game Pokémon Go. The game's premise revolves around using smartphones to see Pokemon characters in real world settings, which coincides with Chris's beliefs about the merge.
- On 2 April, Chris was sued for debt for the fourth time, further confirming the link between the merge and his financial problems.
- On 3 April, a new troll entered the stage with Future message from Crystal W Chandler, who presented himself to Chris as a messenger of the merge.
