So guys you know how Karkat is a mutant and represents Cancer, a zodiac and an illness, right? And his handle is carcinoGeneticist?
Well, as we know, carcinogens are cancer, but you know what else is a property of cancer?
Well. Cancer cells are mutant cells, and Karkat is a mutant troll.
And. Dying, right? Except for the fact that cancer cells don’t die. They do not follow the signals that tell them to stop growing and to kill themselves. (Rather, cancer cells do die, but not very easily. It’s very difficult to kill cancer, which is why so many people die from it.)
What if Karkat has the longest lifespan of the entire hemospectrum because cancer doesn’t die?
