    I'm really hoping the good guys are going to start being active players rather than puppets soon. I was hoping that would be the case when Jade appeared, but WHOOPS.

    What reasons does Rose have to become an alcoholic? Stress, boredom, loneliness etc are all possible factors, but honestly those feel like they'd be better attributed to Dave. Rose seems to be in a pretty good place right now.

    Sometimes, there just aren't reasons and somebody just likes alcohol a little too much. She started with it as a fun way to cope with boredom and stress and couldn't stop. Ive seen it happen.

    What would be hilariously tragic/terrible is if its like somebody said in the old thread is that she has to be drunk to have a functional relationship with Kanaya. I could see it, because it just sounds like a Homestuck type of catch.

    That sort of thing definitely happens in real life, but truth is stranger than fiction, right? Life doesn't need to justify anything, sometimes shit just happens. In a story though, there's a limit to how much serendipity or coincidence can occur before it breaks the reader's suspension of disbelief.

    It's really not a big deal and could be resolved in literally a single line on the next page, like the one you have up there (not the depressing Kanaya one). I'm not criticising, just making an observation on the daily update format.

    True.

    You know honestly it could be nothing more than just another tragic counterpoint. Everything the Lalondes have ever done regarding each other has been tragic counterpoint.

    Also, just for the record, im glad Hussie wrote someone as being not able to handle troll romance. It always seemed a bit unrealistic for everyone to be able to handle it perfectly fine as such an alien concept.

    Dave handled that as well as could be expected I guess.

    At this point it's less tragic and more ironic; they're both so excited to meet that something like that isn't really going to ruin them meeting. Didn't Roxy even start drinking as a way of getting closer to her "mom" cos of all the liqueur left in the house? She might even be expecting this! :P

    Really though, I just kind of expected that the seers would keep it together, considering their roles.

    E: And yeah, I remember when it was first hinted at Dave and Terezi being an item that I thought he'd find it difficult given that it's a form of polyamory, and not everyone is equipped to deal with that.

    I just kind of expected that the seers would keep it together, considering their roles.

    Given their characters, I expected exactly the opposite.

    Rose has never once kept it together in a constructive manner. Ever.

    Terezi, maybe. But, y'know, teens.

    Seeing too much may have driven them to drinking, as well.

    It all fits perfectly, considering past character themes as far as im concerned.

    Roxy and Dave = hard to break, able to deal with problems maturely, extremely reliable, friendship glue

    Rose and Dirk = pretend to be more mature than they really are, tend to not believe they have issues until the castle they built around themselves crashes inward

    Derse kids: still my favorite thing about this comic.

    That's a good point. I think Rose has changed a lot, but I guess I need to remind myself that going god tier doesn't somehow magically solve all your problems.

    Terezi has a lot of issues. A loooooot of issues. She probably is genuinely in spades for Gamzee (though he might just be using her, idk), though I think she is using it as an excuse to avoid her problems.

    ox30LTf.gif
  • ShenShen Registered User regular
    Without sounding too sincere about the silly relationship stuff (too late :P) Terezi and Gamzee could end up being really interesting because it'd be the first real example of blackrom we get. The rest of the trolls come across as very human in their relationships and mostly focused on redrom.

    I think it's interesting that we first learned that Dave and Terezi were together through Karkat worrying about their relationship, and now it's Karkat worrying about her and Gamzee to Dave. It must be tough for her dealing with the two of them and their failed relationships.

    I think thats part of the problem. She probably still liked Dave in the red sense, and she doesn't want to deal with them. So she isn't.
