Recently someone sent an ask on my sorta dead Ask Roxy! blog and it was along the lines of:
This makes me kind of sad. That’s just taking Roxy’s love for him for granted. I think that is the main thing here is that in the first place, Dirk being “gay” isn’t even a factor. I put quotes because it’s a whole ‘nother story for us to discuss.
Roxy fell in love with Dirk because he is Dirk, however through the years that she kept on flirting with him and showering him with affection - he just side-stepped away from all that. By then, Roxy must be feeling kind of pathetic that no matter what she does, he will never return the feelings for her. Deep in her heart, she still had that tiny hope, yet barely visible, that she might still have a chance on him if only she pursued harder. The only result she had was Dirk avoiding it even further.
After she learned that Dirk had his sights on Jake. It wasn’t distress, it wasn’t “dang hes gay now whut” that she felt - it was more of a realization that she was never his first choice and that she should support his happiness instead. I am not sure if any of you can relate to this, but I do. And I know that if I were in Roxy’s position during that time, I would be feeling pretty damn down in the dumps - not because she learned that Dirk was “gay”, but because he likes another person and not her. Yet, being the supportive friend that she is, she still lent him her help anyways like a fool. And even though she slyly urged Jane to work on her own romance with Jake, I can assure you that her intentions were good - even if a small portion of it was out of her own selfish thinking. It didn’t work out anyways. When Dirk and Jake hooked up, Roxy was there for everyone - always putting her own needs and wants for last.
So anon, even if Dirk wasn’t “gay” and, let’s just say, fell in love with Jane instead - it wouldn’t change a damn thing. Roxy still would’ve been heartbroken and she still would’ve supported him in his relationship. That moment where she called him “gay” was only told out of frustration and anger towards herself. She wanted to put a blame on something. Asking Roxy what she would do if Dirk wasn’t “gay” is simply implying that you’re urging her to illicit Dirk into an affair - completely ignoring her best friends’ positions and disrespecting them - and I don’t think that is how Roxy’s character works.
This rant doesn’t only target DirkRoxy shippers but for everyone. Conceptualizing Dirk’s character as only being “gay” is utter bullshit because he is much more than that. Simplifying Roxy’s frustration towards her heartbreak and blaming it on “Dirk being gay” is also bullshit. Sure, her feelings might not have been reciprocated, but one thing for sure is that both of them love each other - certainly not in a shallow and superficial manner - and it’s too bad for you if you missed that. Honestly, …I am kind of disappointed in you anon.
Now, let’s all sip some tea and continue with your blogging.
I don’t wanna get into a long winded argument over this so I’ll just say what I have to say.
Dirk himself said that he doesn’t give a shit about labels and that the term “gay” is old as fuck. It doesn’t matter if he canonically likes dicks, if the dude doesn’t want to put a label on it, then let us not.
Fandom, why do you feel the need to put a label on everything?
I can’t kill her.
i cant kill him
So to summarize, DirkRoxy and JakeJane will, is, and NEVER was incest because THEY ARE NEVER RELATED TO EACH OTHER IN THE FIRST PLACE. They were created from John’s session - NOT THE ALPHA SESSION, but the BETA SESSION.

Thank you very much for your time.
“I may have the same name as her, the same heart, but no…we are not the same person…so please…please….look at me, as me.”
Sort of a continuation of my DirkRoxy fanfic - Angel - where Roxy (the one who died in the fic) gave her heart as a donor to a girl who was in need of a heart transplant that is five years younger than them. Few years later, Dirk slowly coped with her death but was shaken when he saw Roxy (now a healthy young woman after the heart surgery). They fell in love, but the conflict of his friend’s death still remained.
Tried to re-design Dirk and Roxy’s clothes in my AU…
Her cold lips pressed close and her platinum blonde hair was swept on her face as her immobile body laid on the dirty asphalt. The busy street was in chaos as the body of a 16 year old girl remained drenched in her own pool of blood.
“Someone call an ambulance!” , shouted the anxious passerby as they ran beside her, eager to give her help.
Roxy can barely hear the words as her consciousness began to fade away and the sounds turned into a muffled slurry of voices. Orbs of different coloured lights flashed before her eyes as the crowd began to get more panicked. Her hands, still fully clenched, held a letter sealed in a pink envelope - crushed and dirtied with her blood.
Today was supposed to be the day.
I doodled some genderbent Dirk…
you fill the v o i d in my h e a r t
My hands slipped again guys. I don’t really regret it.
