Yes to everything. The art and the ship. These two are a great ship and actually quite plausible in canon. You mentioned earlier about the only time Dave smiling was when he spoke to Jade, and really just their conversations indicate something of a romantic persuasion. But if this isn't canon by the end I will cry. I AM THE CAPTAIN OF THIS SHIP!
(Also Dave with brown-gingery hair is growing on me.)
I shipped it when I noticed that the only time Dave's smiled is when talking to Jade. Hussie can snark about how one pixel can dramatically effect shipping, but it wasn't a PIXEL that did it. It was that the moved pixel made a smile, and you can't help but take notice when a guy like Dave smiles at something.
Also, as John himself mentioned, it's completely obvious that Jade's got it bad for the coolkid.
I admit I didn't get it until recently myself, when I reread the whole comic and realized the only time he's ever smiled is when he's talking to Jade.
I think there always have been a lot of fans, but they weren't as vocal and/or Dave/Jade was always second fiddle. That update just made everybody came out of the woodwork as they realized other people actually did care. (:
Thats awesome. I have kinda always shipped Jade and Dave from the beginning...before I met the trolls anyway. I never really liked Jade and John, even before the ecto. update, because I thought even then that they were related. Im also a Terezixkarkat shipper, so i dont particularly like DavexTerezi. The only shipping involving Jade that i might like more than JadexDave is JadexTavros. *shrugs* Still, Jade and Dave are so cute together.
