I WONDER HOW MANY OF YOU WHO ARE STILL FOLLOWING THIS BLOG ARE STILL ALIVE.
AND IF YOU ARE, I WONDER IF SEEING THIS POST IGNITES A LONG BURIED SHAME THAT HAS YOU GRAPPLING FOR THE UNFOLLOW BUTTON LIKE THE SNOOZE ON A VERY OBNOXIOUS ALARM. AND LIKE SAID ALARM THIS POST DELIVERS A RUDE AWAKENING TO THE FACT THAT CARCINOaquarium WAS INDEED A THING YOU FOLLOWED A WHILE AGO.
if matespriteship is primarily hit off by a mutual feeling of non-threatening, there’s a lot of interesting ways to apply that, but most especially Karkat himself is probably like the flushed GOLDMINE
he is small, he is adorable, he is about as intimidating as a hedgehog made of yarn. Every word oozes pitch hatred but the instant you actually meet him in person he will probably melt into you and cry about how nice your sweater is. it will be grumpy but the red seeps through the gray
he is flushed to the core and it’s hard to maintain any feelings for him that aren’t, in some way, linked to primal feelings of ‘you precious squishie’
