Can we all just take a moment to appreciate how fucking tragic Davesprite is?
Seriously, this guy spent months in a doomed timeline where John and Jade, two of his closest friends, had died. Trapped in an unwinnable scenario with only Rose for company.
So he travels back in time (thus dooming his Rose) to fix things and save his friends, prototyping himself into Past Dave’s sprite in an attempt to both spare Dave from having to deal with Calsprite, and maybe save his own doomed ass in the bargain.
He had to listen to the friend he’d done this to save refer to another version of himself as the “Real Dave”.
He had to watch Bro die.
He’s a freaking hero, and it seems like people conveniently forget the fact in favor of treating him like some sort of made-in-china cheap Dave knock-off.
