best relationship ever tbh

Meta: A Tale of Brothers

On Karna, Arjuna, and the significance of their relationship

Forewarning: the relationship between Karna and Arjuna is an extremely complex one with layers upon layers of nuances from both parties and what they mean to one another. That being said, this post will be diving into potentially uncomfortable topics especially regarding Arjuna’s unhealthy mentality and just how unstable of a person he is without Karna. This is going to be an extremely long piece because I feel like it’d be improper to separate all of these topics into different posts when they all relate to one another, but there will be additional side meta posts regarding certain allegories and parallels that I feel work extremely well for their dynamic. Note that this will take concepts from the Mahabharata, general knowledge about Hindu mythology, as well as Arjuna’s interludes and Chapter America from F/GO, so if you’re not at all familiar with any of these then chances are you’re going to be lost as hell. I’ll be doing my best to keep it as accessible as possible, but keep in mind that this is read under the assumption that the reader is familiar with Arjuna’s legend and his presence in the game.

I’m not kidding when I say that it’s going to be a long post ( 7k+ haha kill me ), but as always if there’s any need for clarification feel free to send in any questions and I’ll be happy to answer.
