[Image: Rule 63’d Roxy, Jake, Jane, and Dirk from Homestuck. Roxy is on one knee wearing a purrple starry robe, holding a cup and throwing the horns. Jake has dark tanned skin with tanlines around her shorts and hairy legs. She is smirking at Jane, who is wearing an apron and holding a cupcake. Dirk is hiding behind his shoulder and glancing at Jake.]
here is some presentation play on the alpha kids!!
in the middle of doing this it sort of hit me that they would be viewed differently in the fandom if this is the way they were canonically presented though. jane would be adored and seen as a “young dadbert” almost, while jake wouldn’t be charming at all, she’d be “ditzy” and “incompetent”, on top of being a more tomboyish lara croft.
as for roxy and dirk, roxy would more than likely be looked down on for playing video games and especially for his drinking. that leaves dirk being too perfect, making her a “mary sue”.
act 6 solved. just think about it guys.
