Happy Birthday you dorks!
I’M BOTHERED THAT I MISSED THIS @o@ HOW GREAT
You know what? I don’t even care if this is a joke. I don’t care about all the Stacy’s Mom Dave Strider covers in the world. Look at this girl. Look at this sixteen year old girl who has had her affections crushed, who has been called fat and other assorted horrible names by an immature alien, who has put up with Jake English whining about his relationship issues for SIX MONTHS and didn’t say a goddamn thing about how much it hurt her until she snapped, who was reduced to no words when Dirk told her he had been mistaken when he’d made her the leader, who is positive her father is dead, and who is currently possessed by an evil troll empress against her will. Now look at this girl that was the first human female to wear pants in-comic, that enjoys masculine things without sacrificing her love for baking or girly sleepovers, that isn’t ashamed to be a total cutie of a nerd, that never sacrificed her friendship with Dirk even if they were both crushing on Jake, who never held it against them even though she is often portrayed as the jealous exgirlfriend. Look at this girl that can swing around a giant fucking fork/trident with ease like a complete and total badass and still turn around and use “shucks buster” unironically. Jane Crocker deserves to be called hot. Jane Crocker deserves to blush. Jane Crocker deserves Channing Tatum in a well tailored suit on a bed of roses who will tell her she’s beautiful no matter what and that she is the smartest, sweetest, most down to earth girl he’s ever met. And I am so glad that even for one panel that really amounts to nothing more than a joke, she’s potentially flustered, cute, happy, whatever you wanna call it even if it’s shown through a very Dave-like way and while she’s still possessed. She deserves to have affection shown towards her because when you think about it he is the first person to ever tell her she’s hot, that she is actually attractive, even if his only knowledge of her amounts to “John’s hot mom.” Jane Crocker deserves to be called hot and so much more. And if Dave Strider will write sonnets of weird obtuse metaphors about her hotness while she chuckles along and occasionally blushes than hell fucking yeah I ship it.

Aw, easy on the frosting Lil Seb
Leeching wifi to post scantily clad girls in loooove.
The Jake+Jane+Dirk update instantly turned my thoughts toward Jake and Jane’s relationships with stereotypically gendered behavior, and how those behaviors affect their interaction with the other alphas. However, it doesn’t seem like a lot of other people are discussing this topic! So I thought talking about what I saw in the update might provide some more insight, or at least a different way of engaging with the canon material.
As far as I know there are no trigger warnings in the following essay. (And despite my passing criticisms of JakeJane and DirkJake in this essay, I ship both of them pretty hard, so please do not take my meta the wrong way! Tl;dr—I come in peace, please do not flame me, thank you.)
Holy smoochfuck this is quite the interesting read!

The flowers all have certain meanings, click on the pictures to read them.
I would have choosen differant ones for Rose and Roxy on a second thought, but I started with them and only later decided to do the others as well. Some meanings fit more than others.
