yggidee answered your question: i need to write something and my brain is being an…John must explain Godhood to his date after an unfortunate incident with peanut sauce and resurrection.
He starts to make whistling wheezy noises about thirty seconds into the levitating strobe light phase of his resurrection. Over the weird Star Trek sound effects (where are those even coming from?) she can tell he’s laughing.
“Did you just…” she helps him back into his chair, noting the way his hair looks freshly washed, how the red sauce stains have vanished from where he’d dripped all over his weird blue t-shirt during the (mediocre) pasta course. “Did you just die and come back?”
“Kind of.” He clears his throat and waves at the gawking room full of patrons, several of whom look ready to bolt at any moment.
“That’s, um… not normal.”
The waiter brings them fresh drinks and sincere apologies from the chef for the mix-up, which John shrugs off with a grin.
“It’s kind of a mystical god type of deal. Don’t ask me which of the others reinvented the peanut when we were making this place. It was probably Karkat being an asshole. Hey, have you ever seen the Princess Bride?”
this is fucking delightful
Your daily reminder that John is currently in a session where a man that looks, acts, and is genetically exactly like his dead father is alive and well, but this Dad is NOT his Dad and has no memories or emotional connections to John as his son.
And eventually John will find out about him.
You little shit.
Dad Crocker and Dad Egbert aren’t genetically identical, though - Dad Crocker is the son of Poppop Crocker and an unknown woman, and Dad Egbert is the son of Nanna Egbert and an unknown man. They do appear to be strikingly similar in appearance, personality, and probably at least some aspects of their lived experience.
Which actually just means that the Dad-doppleganger recognition is potentially mutual. Each may recognize the other as his father; neither will recognize the other as his son.
