Did I stretch your wing too hard? :/
NO. UH…I DIDN’T CATCH THAT LAST THING YOU SAID
well i was just wondering about kids? you know, like when we’ve got the whole planet situation covered. besides, we already have a kid.
i can’t believe you’ve forgotten about our daughter, casey, duh!
DAMMIT JOHN THAT THING ISN’T OUR FUCKING DAUGHTER.
hey, be nice. i’m only joking around…
JUST BECAUSE YOU CONSTANTLY CLAIM CUSTODY OVER THAT LITTLE FUCKING BLACK MAGIC TROUBLEMAKER DOESN’T SUDDENLY ASCEND YOU TO PARENTHOOD.
hahaha karkat, i think you take me a little bit too seriously. it’s not fun anymore when you piss on the whole joke. i know i’m not casey’s dad, but i still have to take care of her and stuff. besides, that’s some awful big talk coming from a guy whose species doesn’t raise their own…
WELL THEN WHY DOES IT COME AS A FUCKING SURPRISE I HAVE RELUCTANCIES TO GRUB REARING THE SIZE UNSUPPORTABLE BY THE CURRENT CAPACITY OF THIS UNIVERSE?
you really don’t want to have kids?
JOHN, IT’S NOT THAT SIMPLE. NOT ONLY HAVE I NEVER RAISED ANY SIMPERING CREATURE TO BECOME ANYTHING REMOTELY SELF-RELIANT, BUT AS YOU SO CURTLY POINTED OUT, MY ENTIRE SPECIES HAVE BEEN RAISED IN A CULTURE VOID OS THE SUBJECT.
okay, i get that, but to be fair none of us really know jack about actually raising kids. we were kids ourselves when this whole damn thing got started.
TRUE, BUT YOU HAD A PATERNAL FIGURE IN YOUR LIFE, BLOOD KIN, AND I’M UNCERTAIN IF THE REARING STYLE OF CRABDAD WOULD BE BENEFICIAL TO POTENTIAL OFFSPRING. I MEAN LOOK AS THE RESULTS OF HIS CLAWWORK, JOHN. DOOM IS INEVITABLE FOR THESE POOR BASTARDS.
come on karkat. that’s total bull. your lusus raised a fantastic troll, and if you took after him even a little bit, i’m sure you would do just fine.
OH STOW IT YOU BLATHERING ASS. DON’T MINIMIZE MY CONCERNS. IF WE’RE SUPPOSED TO RAISE AT LEAST DECENT POSTERITY I WANT TO KNOW I DIDN’T RUIN THE LITTLE WRETCHES WITH MISINFORMATION AND EITHER A LACK OF OR SUFFOCATION FROM AFFECTION, BECAUSE BOTH CAN SPELL DISASTER.
you seem to be doing okay with maltet, and pet ownership is like, the first step towards parenting. you have shown that the very least you can keep a small animal alive and content. that’s got to count for something.
I SUPPOSE. AND CASEY ISN’T A TOTAL FUCK UP.
rose has been helping me out with casey too, since i can’t look after her all the time. it’s easier with two, wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
I WEEP AT THE RESULT OF OUR COMBINED PARENTAL POWERS. THEY’LL BE THE MOST UNBEARABLY ANNOYING LITTLE FUCK WITS IN THE HISTORY OF ALL POSTERITY. GOD HELP US ALL.
with that attitude you’re doomed to fail, you know that thing about self-fulfilling prophecy and all…
I’M JUST JUSTIFIABLY NERVOUS, DOUCHE-CANOE. ALL I KNOW FOR SURE IS ABSOLUTELY NO GRUBS OR INFANT STINK-MONKEYS RIGHT NOW.
no arguments there, dude. we’re still young and to be honest, i’m still not ready to start a family. for the time being I want to get this new universe off the ground and enjoy the spring of youth or whatever other flowery, poetic bullshit i seem to be channeling from rose right this second.
AGREED. IT’S NEVER A GOOD IDEA FOR WRIGGLERS TO RAISE WRIGGLERS.
but is that a “yes” on kids later when we’re ready?
WHY DO YOU CONSTANTLY HAVE TO RUIN CONVERSATIONS WITH YOUR UNSURE RECHECKING BULLSHIT. IT’S A “I DON’T FUCKING KNOW RIGHT NOW BECAUSE MY THINKPAN HASN’T BEEN ENGINEERED TO EVEN CONSIDER PARENTING AND THE THOUGHT SORTA FREAKS MY SHIT OUT”.
sorry. we can maybe talk about it more in a few years of something. i know you’re not ready to make a decision and… call me a cliche shit tornado or something a bit more witty and clever like you do, but you’re more important to me than kids.
I THINK A CLICHE SHIT TORNADO IS A QUITE APPROPRIATE LABEL FOR YOU, YOU PUTRID SAP FACTORY.
i love you too, grumpy.
