While I really shouldn't be happy about Karkat planning on doing the exact same thing Eridian just did, I...guess he's earned my sympathy. Especially in light of what's happened.
-wanted to genocide all land-dwelling trolls from panel 1
-actively pursued means of genociding all land-dwelling trolls
-plotted to betray the 12 surviving land-dwelling trolls to Jack Noir (thus genociding them what a coincidence I wonder where that shocking twist came from? :O)
-incessantly whined about getting insufficient attention from people he held in obvious and abject contempt
-used every girl he came across without the consideration of giving something in return ever crossing his mind for the most fleeting of seconds
-decided to murder initially nonviolent NPCs for absolutely no reason
-expected everyone else to meet in his world (with the pissed-off angels) and didn't even consider (again) meeting in one of their shitholes (it would be so beneath him)
-murdered his former best friend/love interested when she attempted to stop him from murdering every other living troll
-(and getting his dumb ass killed in the bargain, might I add, as anyone who was paying attention would have known, and everyone who heard tried to tell him)
-murdered the last hope of the troll race just to piss off the second of the 3 trolls who occasionally showed him attention
-murdered said troll with the weapon she made for him when she, for some reason, got angry about the above
-ran off, though I will grant you he did not kill Karkat for no reason, so clearly he is okay with people as long as they are doormats
-said that when he next met Eridan, he would brutally kill him (and only him) in return for the cold-blooded murder of his friends that happened *right in front of his eyes* five minutes ago (did I mention the blood of one of those victims was at that moment staining his hands)
...Jesus Christ how do you live with your arrant hypocrisy in finding one more sympathetic than the other. Clearly you should be ashamed. There's no substantive difference there at all.
Of course, I thought Eridan was an utterly insufferable douchebag from day one. I could be wrong. But I'm not.
