Honestly, I fear that if DirkJake does not work out Tumblr will lose its shit over DirkJake not working out because it's a homoseuxal ship and Hussie is a homophobe.

I think there will actually be more people fearing Tumblr doing that than Tumblr actually doing that. Most of the time people talk about wank happening more than any actual amount of wank generated.

Hussie isn't a homophobe, but he does have some slight biases going on that's always been a thing. Not in this particular instance though, ships just don't work out in HS.

I think less wank will be directed at Hussie and more wank will happen within the fanbase itself... seeing as there are people who've kind of been jerks about the ship, and wished ill upon dirkjake shippers from the start. But that's just my wank forecast.

^Now, now there are also many jerkfaces among the dirkjake shippers too, such as the folks getting angry at Jane(or even Aranea) for getting in the way of their ship(never mind that the former choked on her confession and the latter is dead).

I never said there weren't jerks among the dirkjake shippers? Like, I don't know why that would be a thing to bring up. Of course there are, there are jerks that like every ship, no ship is holier than thou. I just don't think that when the dirkjake ship is being hit that it's going to be the dirkjake fans stirring up the wank as much as it the anti-dirkjake fans, that's all. It's pretty much always the anti-(insertshiphere) fans that stir up trouble when a ship takes a hit, or heck even when a ship's sailing looks favourable.

But yeah, Jane hate after that event seems to me to be another case of something that is discussed more as wank than it is actual wank. Like, it was the kind of thing you had to look for. People felt mostly bad for Jane following her screwup, including most Dirkjake shippers.

Dirk gets Equiuuuuuuus yes

Also I'm worried about the sprites that are combined staying together... I hope they asplode eventually.

Yeah I hope so too. I figure they're gonna stay around just long enough to do their thing and then asplode leaving the trolls to perhaps do some plot stuff in pairs? Iunno.

I hope they don't stay sprites forever though.


Also happy birthday Jane!

Oh hey, there are hats for all the alpha kids (and Fefetasprite and gcat, how cute). I hope Jake and Dirk didn't forget her birthday.

Prediction: Jake's going to piss Jane off or otherwise ruin her mood in their next conversation.

Counter prediction: Jane's matured over the course of the pause and won't give Jake the power to ruin her mood. She will dispense advice to help Jake stop being such a doofus and then have cake with her gal pals.

That would be better, yeah. I hope for her sake that I'm wrong. Everyone should just chill, head over to LOPAN, forget their problems for a minute and have delicious cake.
