“Okay! You win! But you have to promise to act like you’re just a regular robot. No showing off, no fighting, and DEFINITELY no Superactivating!”
Look at how friggen TICKED Robotboy got when he saw Tommy and Gus in danger!!! Keep in mind that Ro had been in love with Mona Lethal and refused to fight her up until this point. THEN HE SEES HER THREATENING HIS FRIENDS and his crush INSTANTLY dissolves as his overprotectiveness took over, resulting in Superactivating and putting that horrid bot out of commission for good.
if there were ever to be a homestuck movie, i would hope to god that the go-to, repeated-far-too-often, trailer joke would be john, standing in the bathtub in the stairway, staring balefully at his cell. “rose, you can see me right. tell me. whats wrong with this picture.” preferably being cut to after a shit-ton of action scenes.
