There's so many foreshadowing tidbits, I need someone to speculate with!
Caleb is Anxiety, right? Right? Right?! He's gotta be.
Okay, so Ben's running around, but what's he up to, and what implications does this have for Alice's powers? Or Alice herself, I guess.
Dylan is... probably also something, right, as well as probably most of the other Unparalleled Windenburg Baking Show contestants? We've seen that Jimena, at least, is a concept-person who isn't under Alice's control, but I kinda got sidetracked and am kind of forgetting the differences between gods and sages and who else would be able to control the concept-people.
Uh, who hasn't been confirmed to have a secret supernatural identity? Of course, we know that someone can be supernatural in multiple ways, but I'm assuming one person can represent at least one concept.
Also, given a recent comment, it's pretty funny that Alice herself is a literal god but still uses "llamas" as an expletive because of her mortal roots.
(edit: The profanity filter did not like the abbreviation for Unparalleled Windenburg Baking Show.)

Oh, a new chapter! For some reason this didn't come up in my WP reader. I'll read it tonight or tomorrow, but in the meantime, I shall speculate with you @Dollyllama108The main thing on my mind when it comes to the god identities is Alice, or more specifically, Alice's identity as Alice. We've seen her god of death moments, more prevalently lately, when her humanity almost fully disappears - which is to be expected. But suppose she does succeed in getting the owl of undoing, the world will not crash and burn and her body will live - will she still continue to be Alice, the Alice she identifies as now? Or will that side of her be fully gone by then? Vlad of course shifts to a degree too, when he takes on his other form, but his identity doesn't change as dramatically as hers. Although one could ponder how much of that is to do with him already having lost his original identity over the years.
I also wonder if Ben has left his previous vessels like it's happened with Alice now, or if this is a new development specific with her, perhaps because the god presence is becoming stronger in her? Maybe she no longer needs him to bridge the gap between her humanity and her god form, so he ceased to exist?

I just want to say, I have been HOOKED on this story for the past week, reading whenever I can! (4 homeschooling kids and 4 dogs + church keep me busy!)
I am wrapping up season 2, and I am so excited for where this story goes!
(Also, it inspired me to edit a better looking Vlad of my own!)
