The purpose and meaning of this is mostly about the difficulty of a hero having a love-life. If John risked having a relationship with Karkat, he could easily put him in danger. Even after it was found out that he was Hemogoblin, there’s no telling when a hero will be defeated, especially since what they do is so violent and life-threatening.
Welp, this is how I spent the last 4 hours. I promised a Christmas RMWT picture and you got a sketchy feels-y comic.
May redo it one day with nice vector lines and cell shading but damn, that would take long.
Happy Christfest to all and a merry birthday to me.
