Woah, hey there, uh, intense-glare-in-low-gravity Karkat.
One thing I really like about Kuzu’s art is that, even in sketchy/cartoon style, the figures always have a really solid feeling of weight to them.
In this one, there is still a strong sense of balance, but it feels that the pressure constantly shoving this dude groundways has been relaxed. Like he’s been
putting up with Earth-norm gravity, and someone has just shut it off. …and although Karkat himself is suddenly a huge amount more comfortable, now he’s stuck watching all the dense, lumbering monkey creatures off-screen overshoot themselves into walls and doorways every ten seconds. I know, I know, but turns out the novelty of them being even *more* useless than before didn’t last very long at all.
OF COURSE YOUR FACE HURTS, YOU UNDER EVOLVED SIMIAN. THE GRAVITY GENERATOR STOPPED WORKING, NOT THE LAWS OF MOMENTUM.

[EDIT:]Aha I just realized I forgot a panel. It’s in there now.
Hey look it is that necklace post, now in comic form!
Everything is beautiful.
I found this on the internet claiming to be manly, Cancer-themed neck jewelry
I bet on Alternia, awkward symbol combinations are the equivalent of horrible relationship namesmooshes and/or doodling “MR [YOUR NAME] [YOUR CRUSH’S SURNAME]” in your schoolfeeding binders surrounded by little hearts (or clubs or whatever. trolls).
and one time everyone is bored and that is when Dave walks in on Karkat grimacing in concentration and gouging a fist-enclosed pencil across a book like Karkat still thinks paper is stone-tablet and chisel type technology, gotta carve your grocery list down before the barbarians attack and pillage your alphabet
Karkat has been trying to combineand and coming up with variations on the above squiggles, which is absolutely the best thing that has happened to Dave all afternoon.
holy shit dude, Dave says as he yoinks the book away.
did you just draw an entire page of human sperm
omfg i completely forgot I did this
Unreliable Extremely helpful image explanation:
Karkat and John were making fun of one of Rose’s drunken duckface photos on, uh. Meteorbook, which eventually led to them attempting to replicate her expression onto Karkat’s face, with Karkat crinkling his nose and John squeezing Karkat’s cheeks to try to get the dimples lopsided enough. (John is also extremely helpful.)
And finally Karkat shoves John’s grimy meat prongs out of Karkat’s eyesockets all NO, LOOK, I’VE GOT IT and strikes! a! duckface!
John’s line, for the record, was supposed to be something like, “yeah, karkat, that is exactly what she looked like. hahahaha!”
But instead his immediate thoughts were “it looks like karkat is attempting to kiss me! luckily i know that is a ridiculous thing that is never going to happen, hahahaha…. wait. oh shit. why am i feeling disappointed?”
dude if you don’t shut up about from justin to kelly, i am going to space divorce you
JOHN, YOU CLEARLY DO NOT UNDERSTAND CINEMATIC GENIUS.
And then they make out and Karkat gets his fangs caught in John’s braces.
Guys wot how is that even a thing that is possible?
She frets that Karkat would become glum
If Kanaya explained her conundrum
The grandest of treats
Full bodied and sweet
Unvaried, might end up quite humdrum
KARKAT: BUT THE REALITY IS IT WAS JUST ONE DAY, AND HE’D BE WELL WITHIN A REASONABLE FRAME OF MIND NOT TO GIVE A CRAP IN HINDSIGHT ABOUT THE GUY WHO TROLLED HIM ONCE THREE YEARS AGO.
JOHN: i think we make things more meaningful in our head when they’re happening than they really are. like realistically? there were probably a lot of things that went on that day that didn’t mean that much.
The first year is painful: you are freshly dead and very hungry. You retreat to your rooms and corridors. You sleep a lot and you remember the taste of tyrian blood, the thrill of draining a body dry, you dwell on how hard it was to pull away from Terezi’s throat, from Sollux’s. The humans smell wrong and taste worse, for all that Rose is a delight, for all that Dave is sweet, for all that Terezi is charming. You miss Sollux and Feferi and Vriska and Tavros and Nepeta. You even miss Equius. You even, shamefully, furtively, in an aching and awful and roundabout fashion, miss Eridan. They are gone though, lost and left behind, and their drifting ghosts get smaller and stranger every time you see them.
True story, the first time this came up on my dash (with fic), my music randomizer obligingly set the mood with “Utilities” by The Weakerthans and it was definitely one of those
Dear The Universe: Thank
John decides to surprise Karkat by wearing something “sexy”.
(He is not very good at cultural understandings.)
