I’ve said a lot tonight and I have a lot of neglected homework to get to, so let me give a final thought.
I believe this shows, without a doubt, that DirkJake is a viable pairing. However, I also admire Hussie for highlighting the problems with a lot of relationships at this age. Which is lack of communication and immaturity. And just generally not knowing how to handle a situation.
And it also confirms a lot of headcanons. Dirk is a little clingy and overbearing because he’s been alone so long and has only ever focused on his friends and protecting them. And Jake is the opposite, in that being alone so long has made him a bit more independent, and he doesn’t like someone constantly in his business.
So, my conclusion is that their relationship might not work now. I think Dirk needs to get more used to the idea of people and how to interact and maybe read the atmosphere to see if someone’s uncomfortable, and Jake needs to be more considerate of the reasons behind Dirk’s actions and learn to talk about what’s bothering him.
Essentially, they both need to grow up. So even if they break up now, I can see them working out further down the line.
Either way, I won’t be happy unless Jake talks to Dirk. Communication, or lack thereof, is the main problem right now.
Birthday fic for lumanous! Oh my god, I apologize for my inability to just write something. I always have to add like, backstory and plot and complicated things IM SORRY
Anyhoo, this is just a prologue. The rest of the fic will slowly trickle in…
To make peace with other ships.
We should have.
Giant Alpha Kid polyamory.
Polyamory is always the answer.
it’s fine if you don’t agree I just love all the alpha kids together they’re perfect.
I feel the need to actually write some DirkJake.
I mean I’ve written it before, and RPed it before, but not dedicated a fanfic solely to them.
The only reason I haven’t is that my default setting for my writing is angst, and the world has enough DirkJake angst.
