dirkjohn and eyes though
like dirk and blue ok. he spent his whole life surrounded by ocean and sky. blue everywhere. look out the window, its blue. storm? grey blue. at night? theres fuckin zero light pollution out there man the skyd be lighting that mf up blue af. and it was the condesce’s fault it was all ocean, right - it was also connected to the reason humanity was on its last 4 legs. so dirk might think of the colour blue as something that instilled his lifelong lonliness in him.
however,,,, and this is stretching a bit, but dirk probably had to fish to eat his whole life. and his best friend jane? her eyes are blue. and how did he get all the shit in his room? alpha dave could only leave him so much that would survive hundreds of years like,,,,, maybe dirk dived regularly to salvage shit from the sunken city around his tower? conceivably, dirk could also see blue as providing.
and john. john is a joyful person. people bring him joy! he loves all his friends!! he doesnt care what they look like! he just likes beig involved in their lives! john lived in a suburban neighborhood with a lovig dad! as a kid he had no traumatic factors in his life! john probably doesnt give two shits what color a persons eyes are.
but dirk never takes off his fuckin anime shades so john cant know what color his eyes are. and this like,,, bothers john maybe? and he goes on a mission to look right at dirks fuckin sight spheres and find out what color they are.
and dirk? lonely depressed and lethally gay nerd? dirk probably physically cannot hold eye contact long enough with john to realise what colour johns eyes are.
maybe, in a moment of intimacy, dirk takes off his fuckin shades, thinking hell whip them back on again once whatever is in his eyes is rubbed out.
but they get fixated on one another because they didnt expect what they see. dirk is gazing into the same blue hed been staring into for 15 years, after how long without almost any blue at all? it would induce this bittersweet homesickness that would make his heart ache.
john has seen many colours in his life. hes seen clow- excuse me, harlequins, and troll blood and all his friends have different colored eyes!! but hes never seen this orange before. and its fascinating and satisfying because he found the secret.
and they just sit there for a whole fuckin 2 minutes staring into each others eyes becuase depression, its probably 4:25 am and the weed hasnt worn off yet, theyre both deeply gay and dissociating really hard.
