it seems pretty common to headcanon rosemary as the super sophisticated neat ~aesthetic~ couple whereas davekat live in chaos but i propose: rosemary both canonically seem to care about aesthetics, sure, but rose is canonically very messy. I think once she gets really focused on researching an idea or something no chance is she gonna stop to wash dishes or pick up clothes. their home IS nicely decorated but kanaya often comes home to find rose sat on the floor reading in a circle of cereal bowls and empty water bottles like she’s trying to summon tony the tiger or something
also when kanaya starts working to help raise the new grub/babies she’ll often have them in the house so theres just baby food and toys on everything and she wants to tidy it but… TIRED (worth it tho for the little ones)
whereas karkat is… quite possibly the tidiest person in homestuck, judging from his room. his and daves place isnt all that nicely decorated. the decor is probably a combo of ‘PLAIN AND SERVICEABLE’ and ‘ugly and hilarious’ due to both their influence respectively. but hottt damn does our boy kk go to town with the vacuum cleaner (buying one was probably a very important milestone in karkat’s checklist of ideal domestic bliss. he loves the vacuum cleaner). its like stress relief or something. its therapeutic. even tho dave isnt all that tidy he ends up rlly liking the environment karkat creates and does his best to help when he can, either by staying out of the way when karkat’s on the rampage with a duster, or just sitting on the kitchen counter keeping him company as he washes up.
in conclusion rosemary are beautiful disasters and davekat are ridiculous but Very Clean thank u
Happy 413 all! To celebrate, I made you all these Beta kids paper dolls! I had a ton of fun making them! They can all hold things (except rose, but the’re 2 of her,) and the mayor can hold Dave’s hand or ride on his shoulders. Its up to you!
Feel free to ask about my paper doll process! Or anything on your mind, really.
