I am somewhat concerned for Jade Harley.
(This is a regular state of existence for me, but still.)
It has been made pretty clear that John thinks Davesprite is a poor replacement for ‘the real Dave’ and doesn’t consider him as valid as a person.
When he interacts with retconned Terezi (the new alpha) they have this conversation.
TEREZI: G1MM3 TH3 SC4RF
JOHN: no! stop badgering me about the damn scarf!!!
TEREZI: 1T’S M1N3 THOUGH, 1T H4S MY BLOOD ON 1T!
JOHN: no, it belonged to my dear departed FRIEND, her name was *future* terezi!
He’s mostly being a pain in the ass, but it seems to follow John’s pattern where the person he has decided is ‘real’ or the version that he has interacted with most gets the most credence in his eyes.
Which brings me to my point of concern: Jade. LOWASplode/retcon/newAlpha!Jade, who isn’t the one he has been interacting with, who has very few memories of spending time with him, and who spent several years suffering because of what he Chose to do.
How is he going to treat her?
