i dunno i think is kind of tragic how when Kanaya died Karkat was extremely sad, scared and crying, but when he died she only reacted with a surprised face. it gives the impression that only john gives a shit about karkat
has kanaya ever showed any kind of affection towards him in the comic, anyway
I think it may have been more of a shock thing. When Eridan went on a rampage and killed Kanaya, Karkat’s first reaction was shock as well. The difference is, after Eridan left Kanaya was still lying there dead. After Karkat was killed, it seems he was almost immediately brought back. Like, a few seconds later Kanaya is still frozen and John is still screaming from shock.
I REALLY SHOULD HAVE SEEN THIS COMING.
I mean. I knew Karkat was going to die at some point. Everyone in this comic dies. But. I DIDN’T EXPECT IT ON THIS PAGE?
And now the theorizing begins with Jane’s Maid of Life thing.
So, Jade said this was a demonstration. I’m guessing Jane will be reviving Karkat immediately after killing him, either in the next panel or the next time we see this group.
But what happens when Jane revives somebody? Her powers are so poorly understood.
Alright, so if she revives Karkat now then she cannot do so in the future, like in a battle or anything.
So, I think there are three ways Karkat could come back.
First, it could be a normal, simple revival where he’ll just be alive like he was before.
Second, it could work similar to how reviving with a kiss works. Since Karkat’s dreamself is dead, if Karkat is revived this way then I guess he would become a rainbow drinker or some other “undead” type of monster.
Third, the most optimistic and awesome option would be if Karkat rises to God Tier. Jane’s Maid of Life powers are not inherently meant for evil, they’re presumably created to help the players win their game, so it is possible that this could act as some sort of shortcut or alternate method of obtaining God Tier. But that’s probably a bit too optimistic.
I think rainbow drinker/other undead type is probably most likely.
The good news is, since Jane can apparently only use her powers once per person, that could mean that Jane wouldn’t be able to use her healing magic to kill Karkat the way Jane can apparently kill Kanaya.
Then again, something totally new and unexpected could and probably will happen.
Can I just say it’s kind of adorable that Dave picked up some troll words.
Like, people picking up the vocab of people they spend a lot of time with is just the cutest thing.
Can I just say it makes me so happy that when John was imagining his friends he had Dave, Rose, and Karkat. Like none of the other trolls, but he still remembered Karkat an that is really awesome.
So much has changed
Wow, I don’t even like Vriska and I don’t agree with what she’s doing but…
I feel really bad for her right now. Like seriously, she probably considered John one of her best friends at this point. She really doesn’t have that many friends. And then this happens.
I have never had a ship sunk so bad before.
And then Karkat’s life still sucks. At least he seems less depressed about it? Cause he’s got Dave now, Dave was depressed, too, they really did need each other’s friendbroship.
FUCK this both describes Karkat’s shitty relationship with Gamzee and my reaction to this update.
Anonymous asked: whoa okay i'm sorry if this is a dumb theory, but regarding to your most recent post, maybe he thought it was dave or something?? and he already thinks he knows about them, and that's why he said *we* had a problem? idk i'm sorry umu;;
Oh no, what if neither Karkat nor Dave knows yet and we’re ABOUT TO SEE THEM FIND OUT. Karkat would think that, too. He would be so in denial as to ignore the Faygo and horns, or convince himself that Dave and Terezi were using them. AND WHERE IS DAVE HE PROBABLY DOESN’T KNOW EITHER.
I have a bad feeling that a lot of shit is about to go down…
