JOHN: hi dave!
DAVE: hey bro
JOHN: you're back, and alive!
JOHN: all because of me.
DAVE: i guess thats the thing were all accepting as true yeah
JOHN: it's ok, there's no need to thank me.
DAVE: i mean i wasnt going to but like not as a means of being an arbitrary dick to my number one childhood pal from the past
DAVE: i have literally no first hand cognizance of ever being in danger i just fucked around on a meteor for a bunch of years
DAVE: and here i am and so are you
DAVE: which i think is pretty dope
JOHN: it is very dope. :)
JOHN: hey karkat, don't leave me hanging here.
JOHN: there is more than enough fist bump to go around for everybody.
JOHN: i left it hanging there just for you, but you are leaving me high and dry here dude.
DAVE: karkat holy shit where are your manners
DAVE: leaving a fist unbumped like that this is a new low
KARKAT: OH MY GOD
KARKAT: YOU DIDN'T LEAVE YOUR FIST THERE "HANGING" FOR ME
KARKAT: YOU FIST BUMPED DAVE, THEN WITHDREW YOUR FIST TO SAY SOME THINGS
KARKAT: AND THEN RE-OFFERED YOUR FIST TO ME, THE *MOMENT* YOU SAID DON'T "LEAVE ME HANGING"
KARKAT: I SAW YOU WITH MY OWN EYES!
JOHN: karkat, wow that is really pedantic!
JOHN: and now you actually ARE leaving me hanging, in order to explain your nonsense.
JOHN: i'm this close to revoking your bumping privileges!
DAVE: god damnit
