I'm a web cartoonist, and I make this webcomic called Ourhuma. ourhuma.com
Yeah, they’re definitely related.
truthfully i think kankris got more of a temper than karkat just saying he scares me
What a beautiful character arc.
C’mon, Equius was asking to hug Karkat like they were “bros”. Not being touched was pretty much a matter of self-preservation. He was remarkably calm about it, when the average person in his position would probably go “NO! NO! WAIT! STEP BACK! Oh okay you haven’t moved NO! YOU’RE SWEATY AND YOU’LL BREAK ME IN HALF!”
Meanwhile Kankri was just being a whiny baby about mommy wiping sauce off the corner of his mouth where his fellow kindergarteners could see it and possibly go “neener”.
Context is everything.
