That's why they needed to rebrand the franchise, after all.
John would not only make friends with them, but trust them to get a very important artifact over to Roxy, because they seem like capable, helpful fellows.
yeah john will be just as friendly as he was with the imps and ogres!
(the above statement was sarcasm!)
Also they drop obvious game money.
So yeah he has been pretty nice to imps overall, compared to the others. And he'd probably ask the drones for the time before getting clocked in the face. How rude!
this page, which initially sounds like (and probably was, originally) just a funny way of saying John doesn't like the taste of Betty Crocker baked goods.
DANI IS THE COOLEST AND SO IS CANDY CORN
He's just rebelling against his father's interests. Those interests include Harlequins and baking.
Gong with John has many inappropriate times for ham, while Roxy just has fun.
TG: maybe i am supposed to be a hero and rise to the occasion because there seems to be this little persistent voice in my head nagging me about it
TG: insisting someones gotta pay
TG: and its hard for me to disagree
TT: This was when our ancestors had enough.
TT: The resistance movement had failed, but they could at least bring the war criminals to justice.
It's nice to see that the Daves remain consistent across timelines.
Even though they would meet with certain failure they would still carry a strong sense of justice.
AR would be proud.
As a response to the "great big long Jade analysis", I'd like to just say something about how shes unappreciated from the fandom. I seriously agree with you, I always loved Jade as a character, she was and still is my favorite character. But, I always liked Jadesprite better, since I can relate to her more than regular Jade. Jade had more responsibilities, dealing with being by herself her entire life. Jadesprite, though having the same problem, was a more carefree character who I can understand. Her hysterical freakout reminded me of many points in my life where I seemed like everything I worked for was shattered, and I had reacted the same way. When the two combined into God Tier, Jade became more like Jadesprite, not having to deal with too much of the stress as she did before. And that is why I love Jade currently. (I always did, by the way )
YOU GUYZ THIS IS HOW I FEEL ABOUT ROXY HOPE YOU PACKED YOUR TISSUES BECAUSE THE TRAGIC TRAIN IS PULLING INTO THE STATION
Roxy is one of my two favorite characters (along with Dave; I don’t think I could choose which I like more – I want to date (adult!)Dave and be best friends forever with Roxy), I draw her almost exclusively, and I’ve mentioned several times that I strongly identify with her. I’m going to put the disclaimer that because I identify with her so much there’s the possibility that I might be projecting in some of my interpretations of her character. I like to think that I’m self-aware enough to avoid such pitfalls, but you never know.
Out of the b2 kids Roxy is the one who wears the most elaborate mask. Protected as she is by this elaborate mask and defense mechanism is capable of more intense sincerity than anyone else in the way she presents herself to others.
She’s playacting at someone playing herself. Not playing the version of herself she would like others to see, as most people do, but playing someone who is playing herself, creating distance. Through this distance she is capable of being more honest about herself to the world than otherwise possible. But at the same time it isolates her and intensifies her loneliness: she’s unable to get close to even herself. While others play the self they would like to think they are, Roxy plays the self she actually thinks she is, what she actually sees in herself, no delusions, not prettying it up. The truth is we can’t live with who we really are - you either have to lie to yourself, or creates distance, as Roxy does.
We can see this in the way she plays at drunkenness. She does drink much more than a (nearly) 16-year-old girl should, but not enough to have as much of an affect as it seems to. But she thinks that she’s someone irresponsible, someone unable to cope, a joke, so she plays the part, and she plays it magnificently. It doesn’t hurt so much that no one takes you seriously if you deliberately give them good reason not to, it doesn’t hurt so much that your best friend doesn’t believe you if you act untrustworthy, it doesn’t hurt so much that no one feels about you that way if you make sure that you can’t be taken seriously as a romantic option. It’s self-defeating, but also a pretty solid defense mechanism. There’s a nice safe buffer zone insulating her from the damage being taken.
Because Roxy is a very lonely character. She’s defined by this more than anything else. She hides all this sadness and insecurity behind the mask of hyper-confidence, flirtatiousness, uninhibitedness - someone who can’t be taken seriously or really trusted because she doesn’t think she deserves to be trusted or taken seriously. Other characters, Jake, Rose, Dave, even Dirk, they act like who they want to be. Roxy acts like who she thinks she is, but because she’s so honest about her flaws she becomes blind to her real potential and worth.

All the Dave up in this shit, all of it.
Also, don't feel bad about inserting your own opinions on the characters, I'm pretty sure that the whole idea is to convince other people to think the same way as you do about a particular character.
I really like this thread, a thread for character analysis, but why restrict it to just the kids? The trolls also had some pretty interesting arcs and many colorful character interpretations.
I motion that we make this thread into a general character analysis thread (except Vriska).
