Karkat actually hates ballet but its the only indoor athletics that the school offers. Everyone thinks John calls the shots but he’s actually a total pushover. He’s in detention all the time but it’s just because he pulls dumb pranks on teachers.
Because! Johnkat is actually a good ship if you think about it.
First off, John really hated how the trolls kept bothering him. ( aka: karkat ) But soon, grew attached to them eSPECIALLY KARKAT. And he now likes how Karkat trolls him. He finds it funny. And I’m not going to go into detail of what happened at the beginning cause ‘blah blah blah, kismesis crush, then not a homosexual’ blah blah blah.’ I want to talk about this,
look at his face!! he cares so much about his friend, like, karkat might die soon.
and then there’s also
he’s always so happy to see karkat. well, talk in this case. but still!
this ^^^ a major hint. like wowie gosh
and their conversations are so fun to read sometimes. but hang on, let me just show other conversations they’ve had.
but anyway let’s talk about this:
the first time they ever see each other in person (besides that other time) is when THIS happens.
and he continues to say “NOOO” few a few more pages. then he finally comes back to life.
and he’s not paying ANY attention to jade whatsoever. Just, karkat. because karkat is alive and well, and john is very very happy about that.
and this my friends, is why i REALLY ship johnkat. and why i love it so much.
