I honestly love Bro and Dave’s relationship.
to the point I just get so many feelings.
Like when Dave was growing up people would always ask him why his dad would wear those funny glasses. And Dave just got so sick of hearing it after awhile that one day he just pushed those kids down and yelled at them. Saying its not his dad, he is too cool to have a dad, and those shades are cool and shit.
Like Dave normally keeps it all cool and shit since he loves having that poker face of his. But if people keep bothering him about his Bro he normally ends up snapping at some point or another. Because face it, Dave can get a small temper at times if he wants to raise a temper.
And when he gets home and tells Bro what happens, because he felt proud of himself sticking up for his family. But the school had already called Bro and told them that Dave was trying to start a fight. And sure Bro didn’t think Dave would just start a fight with some kids, he knew Dave was too cool for that shit.
Then Dave and Bro sit down to have a talk, and Bro just pets him on the head telling him its ok to stick up for family. However that beating up on other kids is never good, even if Bro taught him all those mad fighting skills; they weren’t to be used to beat up on people. Because face it, Bro wanted to raise Dave to be a hero, or maybe at least feel that way about himself.
And Dave just snorts it off giving an attitude saying stuff like ‘no body messes with a strider, he doesn’t roll that way’ and Bro just laughs it off. And in the end Bro gets up and starts to walk away, making Dave feel like ‘shit I fucked up’ but Bro turns around flashing a smirk, pushing at his shades just a bit, but couldn’t really ‘see’ under to his face, and he says in a very cool way, “Yeah the shades are damn cool” and walks off.
Then just like that Dave knows he did something wrong, but Bro totally thought Dave was a bad ass in some sense. Bro has an odd way of raising Dave, but shit, it worked.
