Additional Tags: Developing Relationship, Social Issues, Self-Esteem Issues
imagine karkat being mean to dirk like he’s mean to dave because karkat assumes all striders are tough and flippant and never give a shit what he thinks but actually dirk has never in his life had anyone actually yell at him so he actually and involuntarily and to everyone’s horror starts to cry
Oh my gosh was this an interesting idea to play with. I really love Dirk-Karkat interactions, but this is one of two times I’ve run into a prompt that I felt like I could write for them (and the only other time was a Pacific Rim moirallegiance ficlet, which, uh, doesn’t have many similarities to this story). I can feel these two a lot better than I could before, so more writing for them might be in my future.
oh hell yes, this is great
intensely chinhanding and grinning like a doofus over here
I FUCKING LOVE It
