What if on Beforus Kankri made efforts to spread his message of equality and social justice through performance poetry. And it was just his social justice group who knew of it until one night Meenah heard he did performance poetry and thought it would be hilarious and gathered up her friends to go…

can dave be the kind of person who looks up all sorts of lore and urban legends and scary things just to see if they actually are the scariest thing ever? all the things he finds and reads don’t actually terrify him at all, and it actually kind of frustrates him a lot but…
