i’m so happy that canon craig in a relationship with tweek surpassed my expectations tenfold because the last thing i would have expected was for it to be BETTER than what the fandom had set up for craig’s character. i was never a fan of the idea of craig being cold, borderline abusive, and shitty towards tweek which a lot of people seemed to write for him? it seemed that portrayal dominated fan spaces for a while, especially some years back.
instead, now we get craig just being a really emotionally shutdown awkward, indifferent kid who cares about tweek a lot and wants to help him but doesn’t know how to at first because he’s so set in problem-solving through logic. which is sooooo much more appropriate for his character, and i’m so happy that is what the show actually did with his character. i also love that craig being so indifferent emotionally makes him able to be way more patient with tweek in a way other people can’t be, AND that it’s canon that craig is willing to adjust the way he treats tweek and HAPPILY makes those corrections in his behavior to where he rushes to help Tweek when he figures out what he is doing wrong. just… god. what the fuck, craig is such a sweetheart? it gets even better when you know craig doesn’t care about most things or anyone yet goes out of his way to do all of that for tweek.
i’m really excited for how this will impact the way other fans view and portray the characters… aha
