I really do believe that Dirk would remember everything he could about Jake.
The skull thing is just one example. He’d commit everything to memory that he could, every detail that Jake trusted him with and it would just add to this picture of the person he’s in love with. He’d want to know everything about him.
Dirk could talk to Jake for literally hours on end and never run out of things to say or ask him. Everything is interesting to him and he wants to know it all. And Jake wouldn’t get it but he’d go along with it because he thinks it’s just what bros do with each other. Poor oblivious fool.
Then after they started dating Dirk would just surprise him with how much he knew, how he’d casually reference it and Jake wouldn’t even realize how much attention he’d been paying until then. He’d know just how much he loves him because of how much Dirk cares when he’s never know him to pay that kind of attention to anyone or anything.
“She has to hold you back from leaping into them headfirst, has to keep you down on your knees until the fire dies down, until it starts to rain and the embers hiss, and you are stumbling out of her grip, you are rooting through the still-smoldering wood for some trace of him, there’s snot running down your face and why does it always have to be him, why is he always the one to write the blank check, why is he always the one who ends up getting hurt because the rest of you are too young and stupid to stay out of trouble -
- you are so sorry, you are so sorry for every time you made fun of him, you’re sorry for every time you teased him for insisting you had to getstronger, you’re so fucking sorry, you are sorry his head is a battlefield he can’t escape, and you are especially sorry that he ever had any reason to fear you would discard him like garbage.
You are rooting through ash when you find it: the size of your fist, a lump of metal that would not melt.
It’s his heart.”

Scary stories are really fun to listen to while doing anything. Period.

Haha sorry, another really weird comic-but-with-song-lyrics-for-dialogue thing. :’D It might be a little confusing (or a lot confusing) if you don’t know what this is about, I also took out some lyrics and rearranged some just so it wouldn’t be repetitive, and I also wanted to keep it at 6 pages. Also basically this is just more feelings from me haha.
I never got the chance to make adequate Aisle 10 fanart because ok to be honest I’ve been dying to for a while now. I made references to it but never an actual one for an actual scene. ;A;
(Also sorry if I like, butchered it and made this whole comic look stupid or something lol i dunno)
Also remember when I said (probably not) I had a dream about Creek? This was basically it, but kind of like a music video to that song. AND OMG that song has been looping in my head forever now, so I’m happy to draw something to it. It’s really fitting to Aisle 10 but in a totally corny way and I love it.
Also I do not know how to draw most of the things in this and my backgrounds get lazier in every panel to the point of me just going to the store to take photos of the cereal aisle haha.
Also sorry if this is kinda dark and hard to see everything. And annoying aqua speech bubbles.
Ok I am done .///. *rolls away*
See, here’s something that really hit me about this update.
Dirk is so determined to save all his friends, avoid the Red Miles and save the universe that he literally cuts off his own head to save them, and eventually, himself. It’s heartbreaking, because it’s selfless and selfish and brave and ridiculous and maybe even a little stupid, but he does it, because he knows exactly what will happen, and he trusts Jake So, So, much.
I mean, the amount of faith he has in his best bro is astounding. He has to believe that Jake will follow through, because if he doesn’t, than everything he did was for nothing, and they would all just die.
Ladies and gentlemen and Others of Neutral Gender, I give you-
Dirk Strider. Prince of Heart.
i like to believe that when they first meet theyre just gonna hug a lot and then jade’s gonna fuckin pick him up and theyll laugh more and doNT YOU DARE TELL ME OTHERWISE
