what do you think was dave and karkat's first kiss
you mean like in canon? because you know it was probably the most awkward, long overdo thing in existence. Neither of them would have wanted to make the first move because half the time dave is still denying that’s a thing that could even be possible and karkat is so sure that if he pushes anything romantic it’ll tear apart their friendship
so they just wait. the longest fucking time. they’ve been practically dating for like six months and have had so many piles about their individual hangups when it comes to relationships. they decide that dating each other outside of the quadrants is a thing they’d want to do but neither of them actually confirms if they are dating or not. dave starts letting down his walls to be the clingy motherfucker he is.
eventually karkat is frustrated enough that he’s just like ‘okay. okay, this is ridiculous. we’ve been a human quadrant dating abomination for two perigees now. hold still i’m gonna kiss you because apparently we’ll never get it over with otherwise.’
it’s so awkward and stiff and both of them are bright fucking red afterwards and don’t say anything for like fifteen minutes. it slowly but surely gets more natural after that though
