can everybody stop tying themselves in knots over gamzee and look this way for a moment instead
jane crocker just had to kill jake english to get him out of his hope field binge
jane crocker, who is currently under the condesce’s control but very conscious of her actions and in full possession of most of her personality, had to kill her friend (and most likely still her crush) to end what she saw as his suffering just moments after watching her daughter die
and both deaths were caused by aranea in one way or the other
jane intended to revive jade immediately after her death but was thwarted by the becs; we still don’t know if her life powers work on god tier players. and you know what? there’s a good chance that she’s not sure of it herself. (reminder here that jade didn’t even know how resurrection would work on rainbow drinkers and jane did nothing to correct her rambling on the subject, making it very possible that she is not aware of the limits of her powers)
aranea tried to stop jane using what appears to be her best and only weapon: her prodigious mind control, which doesn’t work the same way on humans. but even a relative novice like vriska could put john to sleep the way aranea did to roxy, and yet
the troll who can effortlessly manipulate gamzee, who is not only ridiculously powerful but TWO castes higher than her on the hemospectrum, is unable to subdue jane.
jane is furious right now. just look at her when she’s pouncing at aranea; that is not the face of someone who is being manipulated into feeling anger at having her mission delayed. that is the face of someone who is taking things very personally indeed.
with her mind control proving ineffective and no other means of defense at her disposal, it’s no wonder that aranea looks fucking terrified. she’s practically paralyzed with fear to the extent that she didn’t think to dodge a sleeping girl’s tackle when we saw her dodging a katana with ease just a few pages ago. it’s probably the first time she’s ever seen her powers thwarted by sheer determination, and you know what? it might very well be the last.
because not even the condesce’s control is holding this little lady back right now, and shit is about to go down.
jane fucking crocker, everybody.
I hate to be a downer here, because hell fucking yes to Jane Crocker, but it’s very likely that Jane is, in fact, asleep. All of her. The entire biological entity that is Jane Crocker is asleep.
It’s nothing against her- it’s not a failing to be unable to resist. She’s human. She did her best, and she should be looked well on for that.
However, she is being controlled via technology- her tiaratop- and if her full-body techo-magical girl transformation is any indication-
-she’s being puppeteered. Not just her mind. Her entire body has been invaded and is being manipulated.
Jane’s asleep. Jane’s not doing this.
But circuits don’t sleep like people do. You have to take the batteries out of the remote control to shut down the remote controlled car. In all likelihood, the Condesce is controlling her, and guess what?
Aranea fucked up.
Aranea fucked up on a fundamental level.
Aranea is emulating Mindfang.
Aranea is emulating someone that the Condesce has intimate enough knowledge of to be able to use her powers as her own.
The Condesce is brilliant enough that she managed to create or commission a technological counterpart to the Serket girls’ abilities. It’s even possible that her own crown has something to do with it, which would explain some things.
The bottom line is that Aranea fucked up.
And now she’s gonna get fucked up.
Because yeah, Aranea’s been around, practicing her abilities in ghost limbo for a while.
But the Condesce has been conquering worlds.
To put it bluntly, the Condesce is a little bit out of Aranea’s league.
I underestimated the level of difficulty it was to create sprites from scratch, haha. Oh well, I tried. I made Jake a little less bouncy and I added a Jane in too, though she doesn’t do much.
hot hot momma
You know what? I don’t even care if this is a joke. I don’t care about all the Stacy’s Mom Dave Strider covers in the world. Look at this girl. Look at this sixteen year old girl who has had her affections crushed, who has been called fat and other assorted horrible names by an immature alien, who has put up with Jake English whining about his relationship issues for SIX MONTHS and didn’t say a goddamn thing about how much it hurt her until she snapped, who was reduced to no words when Dirk told her he had been mistaken when he’d made her the leader, who is positive her father is dead, and who is currently possessed by an evil troll empress against her will. Now look at this girl that was the first human female to wear pants in-comic, that enjoys masculine things without sacrificing her love for baking or girly sleepovers, that isn’t ashamed to be a total cutie of a nerd, that never diminished her friendship with Dirk even if they were both crushing on Jake, who never held it against them even though she is often portrayed as the jealous exgirlfriend. Look at this girl that can swing around a giant fucking fork/trident with ease like a complete and total badass and still turn around and use “shucks buster” unironically. Jane Crocker deserves to be called hot. Jane Crocker deserves to blush. Jane Crocker deserves Channing Tatum in a well tailored suit on a bed of roses who will tell her she’s beautiful no matter what and that she is the smartest, sweetest, most down to earth girl he’s ever met. And I am so glad that even for one panel that really amounts to nothing more than a joke, she’s potentially flustered, cute, happy, whatever you wanna call it even if it’s shown through a very Dave-like way and while she’s still possessed. She deserves to have affection shown towards her because when you think about it he is the first person to ever tell her she’s hot, that she is actually attractive, even if his only knowledge of her amounts to “John’s hot mom.” Jane Crocker deserves to be called hot and so much more. And if Dave Strider will write sonnets of weird obtuse metaphors about her hotness while she chuckles along and occasionally blushes then hell fucking yeah I ship it.
