im sorry i . i drew like five whole transformers trolls. i’m not putting these on my art blog because it’s awful and also they’re not good drawings. i was going to do more, even, but i couldn’t work out what kanaya’s vehicle mode should be. i cannot believe that is a sentence i typed.
Well, first off I should probably say that most Feferi ships can be made or broken through a proper understanding, or lackthereof, of Feferi and your love interest of choice for her. Karkat doesn’t get the wildly unlikely “save the poor princess” treatment as often as, say, Eridan or Sollux, but while I can’t think of any examples off the top of my head I am 100% sure that there is badly characterized Fefkat out there.
However, done well, I do think it’s a ship that has a lot of potential in a variety of quadrants. Karkat as Feferi’s detail-oriented second in command, as her contact in less savory circles where a troll of her hue is not welcome, or even as her enforcer could be a lot of fun.
So could Karkat and Feferi almost, but not quite, agreeing on the core goals of a revolution, and driving each other up the wall over it. Are they trying to overthrow the empire, probably by putting Fef on the throne? Or are they trying to put Fef on the throne, probably by overthrowing the empire? They can’t agree and every time the subject comes up everyone else starts telling them to get a room already, geez.
It’s hard being Karkat.
i need to reblog karkat peopel forgot he’s my fav troll cuz he is THE BEST TROLL
Karkat is awesome and I will not hear otherwise. Also I do wish people wouldn’t forget he quite possibly spent enough time fielding Eridan’s issues for it to border on pale infidelity, because Karkat the pale town bike is hilarious.
Karkat Vantas is at least a little pale for everyone ever hatched, born, cloned, or otherwise brought into existence, and you cannot tell me otherwise.
