Why doomed John Egbert is incredibly tragic.

So while re-reading homestuck I noticed something about doomed john.


His corpse was apparently burned.

But his denizen uses wind powers. 

So I was thinking, when does air burn you? And it hit me. 

Steam. Doomed John was boiled to death. 


And remember, his denizen gave him the choice between being allowed to leave fine and living out his days in a doomed timeline, or sacrificing himself so that dave becomes davesprite which allows the alpha universe to exist. John Egbert cares enough about his friends that he gave his consent to being BOILED ALIVE to let them win the game.
