Also, Upd8 Theory:
I’ve suspected for a while now that the reason that the kids are going so out of control as Tricksters is that Trickster Mode takes a certain kind of mental complexity to handle that humans generally don’t have:
It’s not meant to be experienced by a being with a singular mind. You need two or more consciousnesses working in tandem to benefit from the powerup of Trickster Mode without going bugfuck insane. The Cals would not have ever had access to the complete juju until they either integrated to some degree or learned to cooperate with each other.
Jane, Jake, and Roxy are overwhelmed by being Tricksters because they are, in this respect at least, neurotypical humans. Dirk, on the other hand - he’s not precisely multiple, at least not the way that the cherubs are, but as the Prince of Heart he’s always had strong themes of fractured and dissociative consciousness. I suspect that’s why he’s able to continue to think straight while a Trickster - there’s some splinter of his psyche that’s distinct enough from whatever part of him took the full brunt of the Tricksterish hypermanic effect that he’s able to still function as a rational human being.
Dirk refusing to resort to punching Roxy to get her away from him does not mean he’s romantically interested in her.
Dirk repeatedly stating that he does not feel that way for her means he does not feel that way for her.
Dirk is not in love with Roxy.
Dirk doesn’t even have the slightest inkling of romantic attraction for her, which he’s said, multiple times.
That update was basically one big bout of sexual harrassment on Roxy’s part, even if induced by crazy juju powers.
Dirk made it clear he didn’t want it. He threatened to hurt her with his sword, but couldn’t bring himself to hurt his friend in the end.
Literally the only reason he kissed her is because he convinced himself he would be uncapable of feeling happiness if he didn’t join his friends in their candy-crazed insanity.
If you find that at all cute, I really don’t want to associate with you as a fellow Dirk/Roxy shipper.
Roxy is the only girl I can ship Dirk with, but this tag is actually making me sick with how many people are happy with that kiss.
Dirk just consented to marry and have babies with a girl he clearly doesn’t love, because he thinks there’s no other choice.
That should not make you happy.
