Jacob Sockness is a 37-year-old enabler turned ween from San Francisco, California, who emerged in mid-2018 and was most active between July and November of 2019. Like Chris, he is autistic, receives a monthly tugboat, believes he is a god, thinks he has magic powers and has built an elaborate fantasy universe, into which he has appropriated Sonichu characters, with over a dozen instalments that he believes really exists. While he was at first seemingly just another exceptional white knight, notable only for his erotic attitudes toward Chris, Sockness would become openly malicious after finally establishing direct contact with his idol.
In mid-2019, Sockness gained Chris's favour as the two agreed to work together financially following Chris's June 2019 ban from eBay, and achieved considerable influence over Chris's own fantasy world, as seen in Sonichu #14. Most of his courting and enabling has been through Twitter, though he would also promote himself through Reddit, YouTube and even an unamused Kiwi Farms. For months, the two would express interest in meeting in person, to onlookers' alarm, yet when Sockness would finally set out to cross the American continent to 14 Branchland Court in late September 2019, Chris rebuffed these efforts. Rehabilitation attempts over the following two months, at one point going even so far as mutual flirting, could not ultimately repair their broken relationship enough to return to their former intimacy, and by the end of November 2019 they rejected each other again.
Discovery and motivations
Jacob was discovered by chance by Kiwi Farms user neural while observing the many users surrounding Chris's Twitter posts. After further digging, it was revealed that he also created a Kiwi Farms account under the name Jacob JS. It was in his profile page where he accidentally doxxed himself by posting links to his
Like many of Chris's orbiters, Sockness is a furry and lives in subsidised housing with a tugboat. He has a very low view of blacks, describing them as 'beastly' and 'hyper sexual', believing that 'their race can only rape, because that is [their] way of reproduction in a natural setting.' Unlike the Idea Guys, who would inject such themes into Chris's mind for their own amusement, Jacob seems to be genuine. Sockness also controls several sockpuppets to white-knight himself and converse with, while claiming them to be different people; like Chris's similar past attempts to cover himself, these are quite feeble and transparent.
Christorians long could not discern the true motivations behind Sockness's unusual behaviour. For a while, Jacob appeared to be the first TRUE and HONEST believer in Sonichu and the Dimensional Merge after Chris, setting him apart from the various trolls professing to protect Chris and the many previous imitators of the Idea Guys pretending to belong to Chris's abortive personality cult. Over the months, evidence would gradually unearth that indicated that his feelings were not earnest. As early as November 2018, Sockness admitted in an interview that he did not seriously believe in the nascent Dimensional Merge. When Chris allowed Jacob access to his Twitter account on 11 July 2019, he boasted about it on Reddit, even claiming that his sexual attraction to Chris was a facade. On 21 September 2019, when a concerned onlooker tried to warn Chris that Sockness was tantamount to an autistic Idea Guy, Sockness embraced the charges of manipulation, justifying his actions as protecting Chris against other trolls.
Early interactions with Chris

Sockness has spent hundreds on buying items from Chris's eBay, notably buying his old shoes for worshipping purposes. Chris blocked him on

Still, this would not be the end of Sockness's involvement with Chris; he would create a new Twitter account named Chris Kink. On 11 July 2019, while Chris was trying to raise funds to pay for a hotel room at the 2019 BronyCon, troll SonichuMerch told Chris that Sockness might be interested in buying his bath water. Chris saw dollar signs and followed Sockness.
|“||The Sonichu merch guy told Chris I was interested in the buying some bath water. The guy doesn't know I have no money to buy it due to issues with Social Security in May. Even if I had the money, Chris has to follow some exact rules to creating what I need from him. I need him to make and bless some holy water with his juices in it.||”|

After establishing direct communication with Chris, on 14 July, Sockness tweeted that he would open a vendor account on eBay for Chris, acting as warehouse, clearing-house and middleman. Chris responded with gratitude. The next day, Chris re-tweeted a GoFundMe campaign by Sockness to raise $300, nominally as a shipping fund. As of September 2019, Sockness has failed to restore Chris's access to eBay, which would be prohibited at any rate, though he has continued to set up GoFundMe pages for Chris's incidental expenses, as when his car broke down and needed a thousand dollars worth of repairs.
Once Sockness had his foot in the door, he began talking to Chris about his own alternate dimension fantasies, further enabling Chris's delusional thoughts.
|“||Firstly, and mainly, I am not under Anyone’s Control. And second, I still support the Rokat and all the good peoples in Andromeda. I need to meditate further for more sound responses and thoughts. For now I will simply state that your research is valuable, indeed. Going silent.||”|

Chris featured Jakoba, an OC created by Sockness, in Sonichu #14. As Sockness put it: "She drew Jakoba, from one of mine when her CPU pals wanted to see the Rokat". For most of summer 2019, the two would interact relatively little, though other weens would try to push them closer together. In August 2019, Chris, through his Magi-Chan sockpuppet on Twitter, naïvely dismissed Sockness's violent inclinations and approved the idea of him coming to visit. Meanwhile, Sockness would complain on Reddit that Chris's laziness would delay the Dimensional Merge (or Merger, as he calls it) practically for ever.
On 7 September 2019, Sockness released a fabricated conversation between himself and Magi-Chan from that May, in which he declared that he and Chris would need meet in person and marry for the Dimensional Merge to proceed. Though Chris affirmed thereafter that the counterfeit dialogue was trustworthy and begged for the funding to travel to California, he changed tactics within a few days, stating on Twitter that Chris, in Magi-Chan's body, had arrived on the West Coast from "behind the dimensional curtain", while Chris's body was safely in Virginia. Nevertheless, Chris remained interested in Sockness coming to visit him at home.
On 20 September, a rumor began making the rounds amongst Christorians that Michael Snyder opened a new game store just outside the DC Suburbs. A link to an obituary site that listed one for Michael's father was also circulating and Jacob took the liberty of leaving a threatening comment in the guestbook. He basically said that God struck him down for Michael banning Chris from his store and that Chris and Magi-Chan will start the Dimensional Merge. He also added that God will strike down Michael next, all punctuated with a creepy picture of him donning his Chris garb and a cowboy hat. Notably, Chris had nothing to say about Sockness's behaviour, nor the fact that one of his supposedly-most notorious 'antagonists' was setting up shop again, meaning that Sockness was petulantly raging at something even Chris had started to forget about.
Abortive Virginia trip
As autumn 2019 began, months of casual on-line role-playing would come to a head: on 24 September, Sockness reported that he had bought train tickets to make the transcontinental trip to Chris. He made clear that his intent was both sexual and violent on Reddit, comparing his plans for Chris's rear to Germany's devastation by Allied bombings during the War, despite being physically incapable of such a feat.
However, only a day later, Chris posted a statement on Twitter along with a short audio clip, ChrisReleasesAStatementRegardingJacobSockness, indicating his desire for Sockness to return home after Sockness had left for Virginia, and saying that somebody in Chicago would provide him with a return ticket. It seemed that Chris had a moment of clarity long enough to realise the magnitude of what was possibly going to happen if he let Sockness make his way to Virginia and into 14BC. He elaborated on his decisions a day later, including a statement from one of Jacob's imaginary gods, Michiro. In his statement, Chris cited his health as unconducive to having guests, and that Jacob had gone down the path of evil. Chris also said that he foresaw that he and Jacob would end up in a similar situation to how Chris and Cole Smithey are. On 26 September, Sockness admitted defeat, tweeting that his "involvement with the Dimensional Merge has ended in failure" and that he would delete his Twitter account upon returning home. Chris would confirm that Sockness had turned back the next day. In a poorly thought out attempt to save face, Sockness would later claim that his train ticket was his own forgery, and the entire Virginia trip a sham.
Despite spending over $1,500 through the course of his failed bid for Chris's attention, Sockness remained determined to win his prize in the end, and managed to slither back into Chris's inner circle of orbiters despite his dangerous behaviour. He apologised for his emotional outbursts to reconcile with Chris, and had indicated that he wishes to try visiting Chris again at some indeterminate future time, making sure to bring a mutual friend along with him. When Chris declared on 28 September his wish to attend BABSCon, a My Little Pony convention then scheduled for April 2020 just outside of San Francisco, Sockness consoled himself that he would see Chris in person after all. However, they would not converse again for over two weeks after this.
Halfway through October 2019, Sockness entered the picture again. On 12 October, Chris whined on Twitter about complaints from customers regarding the Patreon books they had not received. Sockness, sensing an opportunity to regain access to Chris, discussed the matter with him, and then announced with his approval that he would be taking over management of the Patreon's financing, ostensibly to help, in a similar move to his managing Chris's eBay several months earlier. Emboldened, Sockness proclaimed on 16 October that he would fly to Virginia sometime about Halloween. He promptly resumed hitting on Chris over Twitter, with Chris playing into it: on 19 October, Sockness, commenting on a video clip of cosplayers kissing, said: "How about it Love @CPU_CWCSonichu?", to which Chris answered, "I’m not gonna cosplay as Deadpool or a Zombie, but we can kiss at the future time." Halloween 2019 came and went with no indication that Sockness had flown to Virginia as he said he would.
Shifting tactics, Sockness determined to cordon Chris off from other social interactions, establishing himself as the only one Chris could trust. On 3 November 2019 he managed to sour Chris's opinion of Null. Later that week, Sockness allied with a newly returned Sarah and Steve in byzantine Twitter dialogues defending Chris against other enablers who sought to gain influence over him. Among his methods to suppress rivals, Sockness would harass MKRNightVee in direct messages. Further seeking to cut Chris off from other contacts, including those who genuinely mean him well, Sockness created a list of various Kiwi Farms and Twitter users he deemed untrustworthy for criticising his bid for control.
Friendzoning and second estrangement
The things described in this article are still happening, so it may be subject to frequent change.
|“||I was following the request of Magi-Chan to keep on with Jacob, yet my feelings for him have developed, during the months. As for the present, I had to cool the romance, because even I Knew the whole time it was not meant to be, and Jacob's usefulness had become compromised.||”|

Pressuring Chris to abandon his other contacts ultimately backfired. Chris received the list itself lukewarmly: while he affirmed that he was in love with Sockness, he still maintained some reservations on account of his many faults. He challenged Sockness, noting that the list comprised mostly of Sockness's own enemies and asking whether he would be blacklisted also were he to turn on him. Sockness went on to defeat the various pretenders to his position without much fanfare, though in vain: Chris was repulsed by Sockness's professed associations with demons, and issued a statement on 28 November 2019 that he was not in a romantic relationship with him, and moreover that the Dimensional Merge would be endangered by such intimacy with him. His decision was applauded by other enablers, some of whom had become Jacob's targets. Nonetheless, Chris still counted Sockness as a friend, and thought of himself as protecting him against demons.
As had come to pass two months earlier, when Chris disrupted his journey to Virginia, Sockness responded to the word that he had been rejected with tard rage. He delivered an ultimatum to Chris, threatening to revoke his tacit permission to use his fictional setting in Sonichu and pursue him for copyright infringement if he continued to use them, unless, of course, they became husband and wife. While Chris agreed apathetically no longer to use Jacob's demonic characters in his own works, he displayed in an autistic Parthian shot his usual comprehension level of how intellectual property works: Chris's own experiences and memories of Jacob's fictional universe were inviolable. Sockness remained adamant, sternly reiterating the legal limits on what Chris could do financially with his characters in an endeavour to bring him back into his flabby arms. Holding firm, Chris stolidly divested himself of him by writing off their past business together as being at Magi-Chan's request and describing Sockness as having outlived his usefulness. Neither would speak to each other again for over three weeks, and their friendship was dealt a hard blow.
December 2019 would see Chris's relations with Sockness continue to sour. Against Sockness's order not to use his fantasy world, Chris would release on 16 December 2019 a trading card declaring that his final triumph over Jacob and his infernal horde was assured. Later that month, Sockness sought to spark conflict between Chris and an enabler, but Chris recognised and dismissed these as the fabrications they were. Even Jacob's plan to confront Chris again at BABScon was derailed: the convention was cancelled in March 2020 due to the risk of disease. Unlike the deep scars left to the Sonichu canon by the Idea Guys, Sockness's deviant contributions, if not rejected outright, seemed to have been turned on their head and made impotent to warp Chris's thought any more than it already is. For once, it appeared that Chris had actually managed to evade one of his malicious orbiters.
Any newfound optimism onlookers might have found in Chris's ability to discern his enablers' true intent turned out to be misguided. Through early 2020, Chris had fallen further into occult practises. On 31 March 2020, Chris built a pagan altar in his bedroom according to instructions found in one of Sockness's books. Soon thereafter, on 6 April 2020, Chris followed Jacob again on Twitter. It remains to be seen whether Sockness's autistic machinations will once again be thwarted by Chris's own.
