can you imagine how many things mom lalonde would confess that rose would just brush off as a joke tho

cause really

Okay, so see that hand punching in a code in the corner to open the hatch to the lab?

That’s Rose’s Mom’s hand.

DO YOU GUYS KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS?

ROSE’S MOM PROBABLY KNEW WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN TO ROSE AND THE GAME.

She built the mausoleum, which means she built the secret passage way, and then in this flash she’s watching rose try to re-store power to her laptop right before she opens the hatch.

She knows Rose needs the laptop

She knew Rose would need access to the lab.

SHE KNEW

AND IF SHE KNEW, WE CAN ASSUME THAT DAD, BRO, AND GRANDPA HARLEY KNEW TOO

THE BETA KID’S GUARDIANS KNEW WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN.

Why else would Rose’s mom build the hatch?

Why else would John’s dad leave notes all around the house?

Why else would Bro train Dave?

And why else would Grandpa Harley tell Jade to always have a gun on her?

BECAUSE THEY KNEW THEY’D END UP IN THE GAME AT SOME POINT.

i started thinking about this sequence a few days ago. i took Martial Arts classes for several years and i (and probably anyone else who practices martial arts) can tell you that one of the first things you learn is how important a proper stance is–typically you want to have your legs spread far apart and bounce slightly on your feet, so as to be prepared to spring into action at a moment’s notice. it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to say that Rose’s stance in the above panel is a stylized version of that, would it?

Rose knowing self-defense/martial arts wouldn’t be too much of a stretch–i mean, compare how she and John enter the Medium. John initially has a lot of trouble just fighting Imps, and Rose

so that’s where i get my “Rose knows martial arts” headcanon from. as for who taught her…well

a mother will do what’s best for her children
