homestuck is the best

the best thing in all of homestuck is when we saw what the kids would be like if they didn’t play sburb and grew up, jade, rose, and dave all became dedicated anti fascists who literally rebelled against a dictatorship and murdered important members of the regime, while john literally was just A Stand Up Comedian

Man I remember the last 413. I was drawing, the clock was counting down. I was constantly checking MSPA every few minutes for no reason.
I was so nervous by midnight I couldn’t concentrate on what I was drawing. Things were fucking tense.
 
Then the upd8 dropped. 

damn it was fun tho. 

Why Dave and Jake should totally be friends
  • Dave would 100% love Jake’s fuckin vocabulary, and, knowing Dave he’d probably pick up some of it too, which would be hilarious. 
  • Dave puts on an ironic facade while Jake puts on an adventurer facade, they both use their facades to hide their insecurities and act cocky, they’d be able to relate to each other.  
  • Dave’s “I don’t want to be a hero, the idea of heroism is corrupt for me, but I guess I am one anyway” and Jake’s “I want to be a hero like the ones I see in movies, but I always fall short” contrast each other and they could probably help each other with that.
  • Both have had very simmular cases of physical abuse (Bro and Brobot) with clear visual parallels through the comic (See [S] Dave: Strife and [S] Prince of Heart: Rise up. And the couple pages and logs after that)
  • Not to mention issues with Dirk/Bro they could talk about and help each other out with. 
  • They could also make fun of Dirk, in a friendly/brotherly way of course. “Haha fuckin’ weeb”. 
  • Both were very isolated.
  • Both have hilarious and odd metaphors or terms that they say, even if no one else totally gets them.
  • Jake loves Alpha Dave’s SB&HJ movies, he’d probably love to read Dave’s comics, it’s something they could jam about. 
  • Jake’s shitty movie taste combined with the probably hundreds of shitty romcom movies Dave has watched with his boyfriend. 
  • Dave would still watch Jake’s shitty movies, even though Dave would enjoy them ironically, unlike Jake.
  • Jake is a huge crybaby while Dave tends to keep it all in (Though, not as much so for Dave after the RetJohn and dating Karkat), they could probably find a good balance. 
  • Both of them have some kind of PTSD or at least show signs of it.
