Why, if John was a Breath hero, was he still so silly Blood-style connected to sentimental memorabilia, like bunnies from the movies?
because Blood is the opposite of Breath, and everyone deals with their opposites in someway, either inverting into them or healthily integrating them to support their main role
John’s main exposure of his Mage of Blood subrole is during the three year trip with Jade where he gets so cramped up without freedom that he starts over analyzing and over intellectualizing the things he used to love and enjoy in their simple entertainment forms, and tear them to shreds because he starts perceiving those things as stupid and vapid
but otherwise in a healthy state, John enjoys his interests and things he cares about in a very silly, disnconnected way, with not a lot of serious attachment to the things themselves, but to the entertainment they provide to him, that’s an example where his Blood subrole would be healthily supporting his Breath role
im so sorry i dont have a lot of spoons but i rlly wanted to participate in dirkjohn week. @dirkjohnweek (if you cant tell the character on his shirt is from Madoka Magica) (call this a meetcute maybe?)
Once again I really wish these pics weren’t a bit blurry, because I really love them! ((And I’m not sure I can get him to cosplay John for me again to try and take clearer pictures…i will try though!!))
Me as Dave Strider, and my Boyfriend as John Egbert!
