troll!Dave would be terrible because he’d invent “mating rituals” and insist that human!Karkat do certain tasks to affirm their relationship or else Dave would act really offended if Karkat refused to do them.
And I mean mostly harmless but ridiculous things, like… doing a silly “mating” dance with a bucket on his head or eating a (deliberately) disgusting meal made by Dave.
And Karkat would end up trying most of them because Dave assured him they are really romantic and of course even human!Karkat is a sucker for sappy romantic things.
Troll!Rose decides to intervene and tell Karkat the truth after the incident in which the human danced around the meteor singing “I’m Karkat Vantas and I am a gullible ass” in trollian for 4 hours.
- Dave and Karkat hold hands all the time, where ever they go, everyone else finds it very endearing.
- Jade taught Karkat how to garden, and he got really into it. (Dave has even caught him singing to the plants after Jade told him that it helps them grow faster. Sometimes Dave will hide and listen to Karkat sing because he thinks Karkat has a beautiful voice).
- Karkat was cleaning the house/hive one day while Dave was out chilling with Dirk and found Dave’s journal. He only opened to page one, just out of curiosity, and the page was just a bunch of doodles of hearts with his and Dave’s names in them and a (poorly drawn) picture of him and Dave hugging.
imagine davekat quitely sitting together reading or w/e and karkat catches dave staring at him with a lil lovestruck smile on his face and he gets all defensive like "FUCK YOU STARING AT?!" n' dave just laughs and says "remember the song karkalious"
I’m screaming its funny to imagine if karkalixious was something karkat made when he was like 13 and everyone makes fun of him for it….like terezi shows it to dave and dave loses his fuckig mind and keeps singing it to karkat while karkat is ready to burst into flames at any moment
-Dave and Karkat obviously have a hive/house together, and a cute flower garden in the backyard, and a porch swing.
-Sometimes Karkat reads one of his books on the porch swing while Dave takes a nap, using Karkat’s lap as a pillow, and sometimes Karkat will absentmindedly run his fingers through Dave’s hair.
-Karkat likes to steal Dave’s shades and wear them around the hive, Dave actually thinks Karkat looks really cute in them, but not as cool as him.
-At the joint diner everyone eats together every night Dave and Karkat always sit next to each other and cuddle while John picks on them for being so lovey.
-Dave learns how to play the guitar so he can sing love songs to Karkat.
-Karkat teaches Dave how to speak in Alternian.
-They go for really long walks through the pretty parts of the woods, and they have their own secret spot where they like to watch the sunset on really clear nights.
-Karkat get’s really good at Mario Cart and kicks Dave’s ass at it every night.
-They have a pile of pillows and blankets on their bed that they sleep in every night because it makes Karkat feel really safe. And when it gets really hot outside they have five fans going to keep from sweating too much in their sleep.
-Dave is actually the clingy one out of the two, he is almost always with Karkat and he always wants to cuddle. He secretly likes to be the little spoon and Karkat thinks its adorable.
