>Karkat: Wonder why you didn’t seek Jade. At least then you and Terezi could have resumed your jealousy-off.
There never WAS a jealousy-off. Terezi never thought there was anything between you and Jade, and despite what your idiotic past self thought, all you and Jade had was an odd friendship (and maybe a short-lived timey-whimey auspistice). On the other hand, Strider WAS flirting shamelessly with Terezi, and you WERE incredibly jealous. And now that your matespritship is a lot more solid, you’re actually even MORE jealous.
God, you fucked up so much. You haven’t even had the courage to message Terezi since the awful fight you had before she left. You relay all your messages to her through Sollux and Aradia. You really talked straight out of your bone bulge that night and said very harsh things you really regret. And frankly, if you were Terezi, you’d never forgive you.
>Karkat: Go to John. Walk, fly, get new two-wheeled devices, steal a scuttlebuggy, ANYTHING.
Okay okay, just… can everyone fuck off for a bit? You need a minute alone.
