Can I just say...
Jake used his Hope powers to protect ALL his friends, not just ‘his Dirk’. All the art and speculation of this pisses me off.
Jane and Roxy got injured too, why does their well being mean shit… but Jake is all like “Oh no! My boyfriend! Fuck my friends who have always been there for me and been through things with me, I only care about a RELATIONSHIP!!”
Does this mean when Jake got STABBED for Jane in Game Over that he accidentally thought she was Dirk too and it’s the only reason he does anything anymore to the fandom eyes?
So let’s say you, two of you bestfriends from childhood, and your boyfriend are all getting the fuck beat out of you. It’s the equivalent of flipping the bird to your friends up until your boyfriend starts getting hurt that you even do something.
I hope to god you people IRL aren’t this petty
Dirk certainly wasn’t just doing it for Jake, he got back up SEVERAL times to fight through out the whole debacle. This is something he just does, he is obviously the strongest or atleast the most determined. We’ve seen it when he had to cut off his own HEAD to get shit done, and he did it with limited hesitation (if any).
Yes Jake saved him, but Jake saved EVERYBODY. PERIOD.
