Caliborn shot Gamzee and yet
Gamzee keeps acting freakishly devoted and obsessed with him.
That’s not the first time something like that’s happened though: (seizure warning under the cut)
Lord English shot Hussie in the second intermisson of act six right?
And then the story cuts to a dead dreambubble Hussie finding Vriska and proposing to her.
So yep, first person Hussie sees, and he proposes to her.
Then, in intermission three, Hussie begins to be obsessed with Meenah, forgetting about Vriska completely (granted that could be because of the horse, but hear me out)
So what’s up with all this? Well, Caliborn and Lord English are CHERUBS. Like cupid! Of course you would act obsessively lovestruck and devoted to the first person you see after getting shot by a cherub. It’s just what they do!
(I don’t have anything to add, so here’s a lovely picture as an apology for wasting your time)
Have a nice day.
