otp: you can't be happy without her

6

Harvey moves to put his hands on Mike’s hips, presumably to pull him closer, but his hand brushes against something hard in Mike’s pocket. He glances down at it as he steps back. “Is that a gun in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?” he smirks.

Mike lets out a nervous chuckle. “It’s uh…” he pulls a black velvet box from his pocket, twists it around in his fingers for a moment. “I’ve been carrying this around for nearly two weeks, trying to find the perfect moment.”

There’s a beat of silence. “The perfect moment for what?” Harvey asks, voice low.

Mike looks up and meets his eyes. “You know what.”

Harvey doesn’t say anything, just keeps his gaze fixed on Mike, and Mike takes courage from his silence.

“Harvey, you took a chance on me when the world was content to let me pass them by. I knew then how lucky I was to find you, to find someone who believed in me. I had no idea that meeting you would lead to this, to us, but it did and I have never been happier than when I’m with you. You let me see the real you when no one else did and I feel so fucking privileged to know you. To love you. To be loved by you. And I never want to go another day without that, for the rest of our lives. So…”

Mike takes a deep breath, and then slides down onto one knee.

I wanna know how you feel about Davekat being a thing. Also how Kar apparently gave up on romance with Terezi. I personally just can't believe that.

Shipping doesn’t fuss me. I mean, I dunno.  There it is.  They seem to be happy?  That’s about all I have to say about it.  It’s not an OTP or a nOTP.  It’s a thing that happened.

Karkat’s approach to his relationship with Terezi was pretty sucky (trying to get Dave onboard with a vacillation schedule without asking her, etc.) and it was a turbulent issue for both of them.  This is a fact.  I’m not saying they’re incompatible or that they didn’t have legitimate feelings for each other, but as it was, things were not okay.  Karkat as he was didn’t give up on her, but this universe is different.  There is a difference between “out of character” and “character development”, although they can seem very similar, especially when you miss as much of it as we did!

(On a side note, though, Hussie has mentioned before that part of his thing is that he characterizes very VERY consistently throughout so that any slight deviation can have significant impact.  Food for thought!)

That said, again, I’m not fussed.  Weird things are happening in canon right now but eventually everything will become clear and until then I’m just going to be fine with it and enjoy the meta theories coming out of the woodwork.
