Mobius Strip

The LOOΠΔVERSE is the fictional universe the members of LOONA live in. It is depicted through their music videos and teasers. Its existence was officially announced on April 26, 2017, but was given its name on May 22 of the same year.

Since the lore of the LOONAVERSE can be interpreted in many different ways, many Orbits have begun to theorize what the music videos entail, and how each member's story intertwines with each other. This part of the article covers the biggest and most popular theories on the LOONA music videos and the timeline of events in the LOONAVERSE.

OverviewEdit

The LOONAVERSE is a universe that exists on a möbius strip. The members of LOONA 1/3 reside on earth and portray realistic girls that can be found on streets or at schools. ODD EYE CIRCLE lives between earth and space, aka the middle earth. They display changing and mutative characteristics while suggesting love should be taken control of instead of being passive. Lastly, yyxy inhabit a 'utopia', known as 'Edenism', beyond earth and the middle earth. They decide to escape their 'Eden' in order to discover themselves.

TimelineEdit

There is no official timeline of the LOONAVERSE that Blockberry Creative has confirmed, but instead we are given clues through member reveals, music videos, and teasers about the sequence of events in this world. Many different people have begun to theorize what events in the LOONAVERSE impacted what, and how every bit of lore fits together.

Twinfish's TimelineEdit

TwinfishTimeline

Twinfish's Timeline

According to Twinfish, creator of the most popular and thorough LOONAVERSE theory, the order in which each LOONA member was released was not a mistake, and is the timeline of events in the LOONAVERSE. ("There are no simultaneous happenings. Aside from the two Carols, everything is happening like a domino effect. When one thing happens it triggers another addition to the LOONAVERSE."[1])

Croissant de LOONA's TimelineEdit

Croissant de LOONA is a theorist who helped to break down Bragen's Color Theory, which has become the foundation of most popular LOONAVERSE lore theories.[2] Their timeline bases less on the occurrences during the music videos and more on a specific order of events that happen outside of the videos that we are given clues on during the videos themselves.

Caskerbox's TimelineEdit

CaskerboxMap

Caskerbox's Unfinished Map of the LOONAVERSE[3]

Caskerbox is a popular animator and Orbit on Youtube, who created a Cinema Map of the majority of the LOONAVERSE in great detail. Though their map is unfinished, this is what the beginning of their timeline looks like. Their timeline bases mostly on location, especially during the 1/3 era, in which each member have representative locations in which their music videos take place in.

Erica T's TimelineEdit

ErkiaTLoonaverse

Erica T's Timeline[4]

Erica T is a Youtuber who does piano covers, album unboxings, and the occasional LOONA theory video. Her timeline is a very unique take on the LOONAVERSE, starting out with the ODD EYE CIRCLE and ending with Egoist, contrary to most theorists who believe that events take place in order of reveal/release of music videos. Her timeline is also interesting since it has events overlapping each other and occurring at the same time with parallel universes, unlike other theories which coincide more with a "domino effect".

Izzy Oswin's TimelineEdit

Izzy Oswin was one of the first ever LOONA theorists who broke down the LOONAVERSE based on a little-known theory; LOONA members' representative months. Each LOONA member was revealed and later released a single in a month, which became that members' so-called "month", which would make sense, since LOONA's Korean name translates to "Girl of the Month". But most believe this idea started to fall apart when there was more than one member per month, for example HyunJin being revealed in November 2016 and Yves in November of 2017. But Izzy Oswin's unique theory states that this was on purpose, and that in fact the members of LOONA have one year to meet and debut together, and if they fail then the year is reset, in sort of a continuous cycle. And of note, due to ViViD being released in October that is when the year officially starts, meaning the girls have until the next October to meet as twelve.

Other LoreEdit

There's always more to explore outside of the music videos and members of LOONA. In these articles we will be exploring the inner workings of the LOONAVERSE and the information Blockberry Creative gives us about the secrets of this world.

Future PredictionsEdit

In an interview with DAZED, JinSoul stated "I can tell you that this is not the end, rather just a beginning. There could be a new unit with different combinations, for example, HyunJin and I could be a new unit."[6] This simple statement sheds a light on how the LOONAVERSE works and as a whole, the future of LOONA. As mentioned in Cultural References this suggests the idea of reincarnation, where people or creatures are born again once they die. Their body stays on earth but their spirit or soul is given to a new creature until that organism dies, in a continuous cycle.

With the idea of the LOONAbirth we could end up seeing a "LOONAdeath" and then a rebirth or a reincarnation of the LOONA members into new subunits, new roles, new colors, and new animals. The LOONA we see now could look very different in a year's time. We could currently be in "Phase 1" of LOONA, with future phases and versions of LOONA to come.
