so when i woke up this morning i remembered the thing i forgot to post about this update, which is my feelings about the whole DAVESPRITE BROKE UP W/JADE BECAUSE HE’S DOOMED theory that has been happening even before this last update
man can i say that I BROKE UP WITH YOU TO SPARE YOU THE PAIN OF MY DEATH is like the shittiest trope ever?
like people always frame it as this great tragedy or whatever and no, it’s not a great tragedy, it’s some douchewaffle deciding that the only way to be good to their loved one(s) is to emotionally destroy them shortly before they are emotionally destroyed by their death. there are some examples where maybe the dying person breaks up w/someone because hey they’ve got some severe emotional problems going on and maybe they can’t handle being in a relationship, or maybe they aren’t handling it well together, etc. but the idea of how it’s a GREAT AND TERRIBLE BURDEN THAT YOU SHOULD SPARE THOSE AROUND YOU is such shit, oh my god, whenever it’s used in stories it is just an instant ASSHOLE STAMP on that character, way to completely devastate someone…right before your death completely devastates them. yes good, A+
