blind dirk but he programs hal in his shades to function as new eyes basically where hal scans his surroundings and warns him if hes about to walk into something but hal is also an asshole to him sometimes and doesnt tell him when theres something in front of him and he walks right into a door
*Goes over and gently feels face before kissing and recognizing voice*
*Quietly huffs and whispers into ear after kiss being very very close to Hals ear with a serious voice.*
When sunlight reaches Earth’s atmosphere, it is scattered in all directions by all the gases and particles in the air. Blue is scattered by air molecules more than other colors because it travels as shorter, smaller waves. This is why we see a blue sky most of the time you lil shit. @autoresponder-replies
OKAY, SO YOU KNOW HOW DIRK IS SO FRIGGING TRIGGERED WHEN TODD SAYS HE’S PSYCHIC?
It’s because he feels guilty.
He hadn’t told Todd about what happened at the hotel, and he knows a lot, but he doesn’t want Todd thinking he’s psychic. Because, if he lets Todd believe this, Todd will be even more angry when he finds out the truth. Todd is Dirk’s only friend, and means a lot to him.
Alpha!Stridercest in which Dave and Dirk have parents, and they’re kind of shitty.
They’re very religious and conservative living in Texas. When Dave was eighteen he decided to move out and follow his dreams, heading to an arts college in California where he ended up making it big as a movie producer before even graduating. Despite his parents saying he would never get anywhere in life, he really proved them wrong.
Not long after he left, they had baby Dirk. Who turns out to be totally blind.
Now Dave’s not too close with his unsupportive family and his work keeps his busy, so he doesn’t really talk to them all that much besides the obligatory phone calls home in which he only really talks to his mom and wow is it taxing because while they claim they’re proud of him, they always bring up something about how his subject matter is a little on the inappropriate side and if you keep that up, Davey, you’ll end up going to hell.
So he doesn’t call often or come home at all.
Dirk is raised in that very religious household where his brother’s fame is constantly praised but criticized. His parents brag about Dave all the time, but it’s more of a way to share in the fame.
So Dirk does his own things. He gets into robotics and puppets despite his disability and he grows up not really know his brother. He finds out he’s gay but he’s smart enough to keep that hidden from his parents.
They don’t support his hobbies. The puppets are too sexual and he’s asked to stop making them pretty quick. The robotics thing is okay, but when Dirk starts making robots that can seemingly think for themselves, Dirk’s told he’s delving into territory of playing god and that’s not right. When he’s caught having an intellectual conversation with his shades, they ban him from all robotics.
And then the worst happens. They end up dying in a car accident and suddenly everything is happening really quick. There’s a funeral, Dave can’t make it, but Dave now becomes Dirk’s guardian.
Dave’s not sure what to expect when he flies Dirk down, but it’s certainly not this kid. He’s snarky and confident, walking around with long, sure strides despite being blind and having to use a cane. He barely needs any help with anything, he’s nothing like mom and dad, and then this kid starts bringing out his laptop and asking for Dave’s credit card number so he can buy these weird things on eBay and shit. Eventually Dave just hands over his card and let’s the kid do whatever.
Then suddenly there’s a robot.
And Dave’s so fucking pissed because every time he asked his mom about Dirk, she would say, oh yeah, he’s pretty smart and capable, but there was always that /for a blind kid/ silently tacked onto the end in her tone and she never once mentioned robots. No way, this kid is fucking brilliant, and then his shades start talking!
Dave’s just absolutely floored by his blind little brother and so immensely proud. His parents made him give up on family but Dirk is bringing back that pride.
Plus you have cute scenes of Dirk feeling up Dave’s face and saying he looks like a nerd, and then Hal popping in to confirm that yes, yes Dave does indeed look like a nerd.
And one day something happens and for the first time since his parents’ death, Dirk finally starts grieving over it and starts crying and Dave pretty much panics because he’s not sure how to handle that. And Dirk’s babbling about every good thing he remembers mom and dad doing and then Dave starts remembering and he starts crying too because he never got to say goodbye and they last time he talked to his parents he had to cut off the phone call for a meeting and he never said that he loved them and never got to patch up his relationship with them.
So they sit on the couch all night holding each other and crying.
Somehow sex happens, I’m sure, because I ship them but whatever. This is cute, don’t even tell me it’s not. I love blind Dirk.
imagine if dirk (or more possibly, dave) stole jane, jade, john, and jake's glasses and hid them, and all of them are wandering around half blind and grumbly, and dirk and/or dave is watching them giggling on the inside (and then somebody responsible scolds him)
bahah that would be mean!
then in revenge somebody could steal their shades, Dave just barricades himself in his room and refuses to come out until he gets them back lmao
