as soon as i ran away from home not only all the relatives and family members but also other adults and even friends my own age started insisting that “i made a mistake” and “i have to come back” and that’s when i realized pretty much anyone in this society is ready to put my life on the line in a heartbeat in favour of pleasing my abusive parents and keeping their own comfortable perception “if children fail to be endlessly loving and grateful to parents they’re wrong because they should know better”. I would have died if i was forced back home. But apparently if it takes my life to keep parents happy, then everyone is ready to sacrifice that. Well it’s my life. And i’m not giving it. And i can’t believe they have the nerve to even imply a decision to save my life was a bad one. I wish i could transfer all my feelings directly on them and watch how long would they be able to live while enduring it.
My problem is both Dave and Karkat have been uncomfortable with the idea of a poly relationship and without that setup this comes off like a pair the spares moment and Jade DESERVES better.
