Yo but Dangan Ronpa/Homestuck crossover where Dirk and Chihiro hang out and talk computers and coding and the downfall of modern society and how everyone else just needs to simmer the fuck down with trying to categorize them like gender/sexuality is the most important thing about them
meanwhile they’ve networked their machines and before they realize what’s happening Lil’ Hal has taught Alter Ego some very bad habits
and yet at the same time his sexual orientation isn’t CENSORED either and neither is his same-sex relationship it’s just really cool to me
sometimes i’m really glad that dirkjake wasn’t an onscreen thing because it just makes it seem so much more organic to me? if it had been onscreen it probably would have been a glee-like circus of horror of hussie being like ‘LOOK AT THIS GAY COUPLE’ rather than having it just be something that happened? jake and dirk are in a relationship, jane and roxy are aware of it, nobody really thinks of it as a SHOCKING DEVELOPMENT because it’s just a thing that happened
and then they break up and that’s just a thing that happened too, like it happens with a million other everyday couples and they hurt but they move on but hussie makes absolutely no attempt to hide it and isn’t embarrassed by it
Honestly, I’ve always loved how Hussie let the alpha kids have ordinary teenage relationship drama. Parts of it were really hard to read, but only because it rang so true - sixteen-year-olds do stumble in and out of relationships and perform magnificent swandives of self-sabotage and moon over people they can’t have, without it making anyone involved a bad person.
