sorry cant stop thinking about jake and rose but okay seriously
somehow I DONT KNOW HOW but somehow jake and rose are one of the healthiest canon ships ive ever seen in a cartoon like. like. just look at them as jake and rose, not as american dragon and huntsgirl.
jake and rose first meet and theyre immediately in like with each other. it’s more obvious from jake’s side since he’s the protagonist but it’s pretty clear rose is into him too. so there’s lots of mutual flirting and they compliment each other and try to spend more time with each other and even tho trixie and spud tell jake rose is out of his league - he doesnt care cuz he thinks rose likes him too and he wants to see where the relationship could go!!! and they have nothing but respect for each other and are just so optimistic about their potential relationship that even tho they have sworn duties outside of personal lives they try their best to see the relationship through……..
and then when jake finds out rose is huntsgirl he’s shocked and blows her off and rather than question him or get mad at him or anything rose totally respects that he needs space even if she thinks its for a different reason than it is AND THEN she waits a few days before trying to reconcile and continues to not push him until he gives some sort of signal
and then when jake reveals his identity to rose you can see the look on her face is so shocked and shes realizing - it wasnt because we didnt get to hang out on the ski trip, that wasnt it even a little bit, it was this, this life she didnt even enjoy living, and at that point she probably wouldve been fine using the word love with jake but she knows at this point there’s nothing she can do and she just leaves cuz she cant let him be in that kind of danger and like
like then its true that she breaks his (and her own) heart a whole bunch of times but its all done so OPENLY she never denies that she does love him and shes not afraid to let him know that her feelings are there and when she pushes him away rose explains why she tells him exactly why she feels like they can’t be together and they TALK ABOUT THINGS and its just. i. i dont know like
like??? HOW CAN THESE TWO BE SO PERFECT??? theyre star crossed lovers and mortal enemies and yet SO HEALTHILY PORTRAYED AT THE SAME TIME. theres never any disrespect between the two. there’s misplaced insecurities and ten minutes of betrayal with thoughts that jake would probably regret for the rest of his life but there’s just. never any disrespect. and i really love that. idk. i love these two. jacuzzishipping lives on 4eva
I just finished rewatching American Dragon. Oh boy my heart hurts. I'm just curious as to what you think happens to Rose and Jake after the events of the last ep? Like Rose remembers some stuff and I just AHHH.
I LIKE TO THINK that they would make the long-distance relationship thing work. they just feel like one of those special relationships that could last the whole time
esp since they can do dream dates and hang out all the time while theyre sleeping and itd be sO CUUUUUUUTE

amdrag!au where rose’s role is how she was originally going to be portrayed - a lois-lane-type school reporter! i imagine her goals would be similar to rotwood’s in that she wanted to prove to everyone that magical creatures are real and she’d end up getting stuck too deep and in danger all the time and jake would save her and eventually she’d join the team of jake/trixie/spud and they’d save magical creatures together
How do you think Jake/Rose went down after the finale? :'D
SOB i like to think that they tried for long distance and it actually worked out
and rose couldnt just up and move back to new york but they kept their relationship online/phones/dream charms throughout high school but then rose got accepted into nyu!!! cuz shes smart and successful and whatnot
and jake ends up going to a smaller school in nyc but they still go to school in the same area and they date for realz and they love it a lot
ohshit i forgot about rose’s twin sister okay during the high school times rose and jake, while in dreams together but they also met up during the summers, and they tried to find out what happened to rose’s sister since her parents actually do not know and have no memory OF rose being a twin
and it turns out that the crystal skulls did a little ~*~exchange~*~ type thing when jake had rose stay with her parents, another creepy organization came along and took rose’s sister (daisy?? lily?? no no IRIS. iris definitely :D) and shes been with them
idk what kind of organization tho but she looks just like rose only she has way shorter hair and straight bangs and they save her and she
