"Fuck off, Harley, my left sock is more exciting than your girly goddamn wizard slash."
"Prove it," Jade says, that goofy grin of hers shining like anything, setting his heart off like a nuclear reaction, meltdown, overload."

-"You really like the way his cheeks light up with rage, like he's a little pink and gray lightblub, or a dusty easter candy that's been under the couch for three years. It's terrible because it always makes you want to reach out and poke them and maybe make a hilarious “boop”ing noise when you do it. He'd be so “furious”.
But you mean that in a totally straight way."
-John Egbert and Karkat Vantas from But I'm a Friendleader!, part 3-4
-"“KARKAT, DON'T PANIC BECAUSE I AM PANICKING AND WE BOTH CAN'T PANIC.” you say as you whirl around and grab his shoulders. You shake him a few times too because no, no, no, you are not ready to be gay and maybe you can shake all the beautiful out of him."
-John Egbert and Karkat Vantas from But I'm a Friendleader!, part 7
-"He is, without a doubt, not homosexual. He made sure that everybody understands that.
Then why is it that when Karkat sends him messages he gets irrationally excited and giddy. Why is it that when Karkat shakily demands to know why he’s covered in blood he has strange pains in his heart, pains different to the grief he already feels there. Why is it that when Karkat says that he wish he could make things better, wipe his tears away, hold him, it only makes him cry more, because he knows that Karkat isn’t here. Karkat can’t make things better, can’t comfort him, tell him it’s going to be alright, because he doesn’t even exist in this universe. There are only grey words swimming through his tears."

-"What’s the big deal anyway? He’s allowed to talk to his friend, because that’s what fellow friendleaders do – they make plans together, talk about the future, and if they do comfort each other, if Karkat does let his head bang into John’s shoulder once or twice when he’s tired and angry and frustrated, resting for that brief moment in-between the shadows of the lab room computers, it is in a totally manly way.
And if John holds Karkat's head close, impulsively runs his fingers through thick black hair and tells him that everything is going to be okay, it's only because that's what it takes to comfort the both of them."

-"So there is no barrier of grey and blue text and only the lines of small hands and the texture of dark hair and salty tears."
