These are the comics I had as a little kid. I seriously learned to read from Dealer McDope and Palmer Vrdees and Spain Rodriguez super gory comics about the Spanish civil war. And Jack Chick’s full color catholic torture books.
Finally, and I mean FINALLY, your parents had agreed to let
you paint your room. The last time it had seen a fresh coat of paint was when
you were 8 years old and frankly, you were not feeling the bright pink anymore.
Early this morning since your room had already been cleared and you were
sleeping on the sofa, your parents had already pasted on the wallpaper on one
wall, leaving it covered because they knew how clumsy you were. All you had to
do now was paint the other walls white, a simple job but you still wanted help
from your friends.
So, after you parents had left for work you called your
friends Marty, Todd and of course Dave begging them to come over to help. Of
course they wanted to help you as they knew it would be a laugh. Opening the
can of strong smelling white paint, you filled four trays adding rollers before
handing one to each boy who walked through the door.
conversation how stumbled into the world’s most terrible jokes. “Hey y/n” Dave
said pushing his glasses up his nose with his wrist, his hand too covered in
sticky paint. “Where do you find a donkey with no legs” he laughed continuing
to roll paint onto the walls, the pink slowly beginning to disappear. “Where
you left him!” he exclaimed making all four of you flick small dots of paint at
him. “That is the worst! I swear I have never heard that one before” Todd spoke
sarcastically elbowing Dave in the arm before Dave wiped his sticky hands all
over Todd’s back.
“Hey Dave” you giggled mimicking his previous actions. “What
do you call a dinosaur with one eye? Doyouthinkhesaurus!” you laughed as Dave
himself even chuckled. “Christ these are so terrible! Marty acknowledged
putting down his tray and brush. “I’m going to get us some beer because I
cannot listen to you too, c’mon Todd come with me you know the guy” he spoke
practically pulling Marty out of the house.
“Hey y/n” Dave giggled turning around and accidentally
hitting you in the face with a roller, paint going all down your face. “Oh My
God!” you yelled pouring the tray full of paint over Dave’s hair. Paint began
to fly everywhere; it was a good thing that the room was empty. Soon you and
Dave were both covered in paint, you looked a complete mess but you two found
“ew!” you blurted out tasting paint on your lip Dave
laughing at you slightly before placing his paint coated hands on your face
using his thumb to clear off the droplet that was on your lip. “Better?” he
questioned as you whispered a quiet yeah.
Maybe because it was the strong paint fumes, or maybe it was
because it was the fact there was only you too, or maybe even it was just the
close proximity that you were in too him. Either way you soon noticed that you
both were leaning in. Placing your lips onto his they moulded neatly into his
making you forget the world until eventually you broke away to the sound of
“Christ we should
have bought something stronger.”
Honestly one thing I’m surprised nobody mentions in this whole Davekat Debate is that Hussie has always been really good at writing romance in the way that kids his characters’ ages experience it. If two 16 year old guys who have off and on hated each other and been close friends discovered they had romantic feelings for each other of course they would be awkward about it and a bit cagey with their other friends, especially if one of them has been struggling with his sexuality for years in the way Dave has. So of course Davekat is canon and of course it’s flushed but that doesn’t mean that we need them to start passionately making out and declaring their love for each other at every opportunity as proof. These people who vehemently deny Davekat as canon just because the characters have beat around the bush about showing physical and verbal affection don’t really understand Dave and Karkat’s characters in my opinion. Of course they would be awkward and cagey. It doesn’t mean they aren’t hella gay for each other. Let these teenagers be teenagers.
