It he,,, my favorite boy!!
When you’re not quite human.
An explanation for the hoe,, basically it’s like the item used for world edit but since it’s usually an axe, I tried to switch it up a bit to give some distinction between Dream and XD.
As for his belt, which is the same materials as the hoe, it’s literally just his creative inventory where he can reach in and basically pop anything out.
The horns and his scars? :)

Singing Dre doodle cause I can.
OP forgot the best part
did he try to stab her?
No, he was trying to cut off his pinkie finger as an apology.
The running joke of the manga is that he used to be a high-ranking yakuza enforcer who’s having trouble adapting to civilian life. Hence her shocked face when she saw the decorations and the creepy way he sang “Happy Birthday”; it’s a traditional birthday celebration for your oyabun, not your wife.
oh my god, i just realized, this means he sees her
AS THE BOSS IN THE RELATIONSHIP
when people say malewife and girlboss this is what they should mean

-Sun Tzu, The Art of War.
June 13, 2020. I woke up, phone fully charged, checking the time. MCC was rolling around, and for me- it would have aired at June 14, because timezones exist and wizards didn’t do their job properly in setting up the laws of boundaries of the concepts of time, and neither did the clock companies who invented the concepts to sell more clocks. To get back to what I was saying, MCC was coming up- it would have been the sixth..installment? Tournament. It would have been the 6th tournament, and at the time- I didn’t pay attention to twitter at all.
So of course, I didn’t get to see a sneak peak of the teams, I didn’t get to see the start of the rivalry that would break the internet in a duel that would risk their entire reputations as the best- or one of the best, per say, of what they did. I never got to see the start of the rivalry between Technoblade and Dream firsthand.
I check the time. 4 AM. Sue me, I’m an Asian, and I also happened to have about 6 hours of sleep because I actually used to have a sleep schedule at a time, I had just happened to have woken up because of a dream. I open up youtube to see a new notification. Technoblade was streaming. The tournament was there.
Now, remember how I had all this build up, all this backstory of how I woke up super early to watch a Techno stream? I fell asleep midway through and woke up at about seven.
I watched the vod later in the afternoon, not knowing who had won. Well, color me surprised to have the first segment of the vod be one of Techno’s monologues to the chat, and oh! It was about some random dude who had tons of clout and was rising fast, apparently, and also Grian- color me surprised to see Techno fucking simp for the man- and color me surprised, to have witnessed the first time Techno and Dream had their rivalry plant it’s seeds.
Color me surprised, to have seen the birth of the rivalry that would form the foundations of some of my greatest friendships.
Now, let’s cut back to the present, and it’s been- oh gods how long has it been- uh. It’s been about what the fuck where had time went. Ten months- what the absolute fuck.
Back to the topic, we’re at the present, and I was about to say it’s February and then I look at the fucking calendar on my phone. It’s April. What the fuck.
I keep getting sidetracked and I deeply apologize, but just- time. What the fuck.
Anyway, it’s the present, and I’m there, just chatting with my friends on the Rivalstwt discord (haha shameless plug you should totally join if you like Rivalstwt haha pspsps you know you wanna), and I suddenly get an epiphany. Techno and Dream are literally the same person but in different fonts, we all know this.
Technoblade is in lowercase bold, and Dream is in uppercase italics. Don’t ask me why this is or how this makes sense, it just does, don’t @ me.
Techno and Dream- there is- man there are a lot of parallels and contrasts. That’ll be the purpose of this word vomit/ramble/mayyyyybe essay? Could this even be counted as an essay? Probably not. I’ll just call this as Idot rambling about block men and looking too far into things, do we agree? Agreed.
So, after- a reeaaallly long winded intro! Let’s begin.
Techno and Dream are, if you look at the surface, fundamentally very different people. I mean, one has a cat. One has a dog. Super different. Okay, but in all seriousness! Techno- his style of content is more uh, laid back. Chill. Just, comedy and satire, commentary and sarcastic comments as he beats up orphans and stabs nerds, and Dream- his style of content is less laid back, the opposite of it actually, it’s more the “on the edge of your seat” kind, less relaxed and more intense, fast paced I’d even say, but with some scenes where the pacing slows to a crawl to build tension and leave you holding your breath, it’s more- climactic. Cinematic, I’d say.
One thing they have in common with their styles of content though, is that their upload schedules….yeah. /lh
I am not sorry. /j
Anyway, continuing on the threads of Dream being more fast paced and Techno going slower, you ever wonder about their most iconic series’ and what they both say about the creators? Manhunt and Potato War specifically, I mean.
Ever wonder how Manhunt is..as stated before, intense, fast paced, it doesn’t overstay it’s welcome, very action packed, a fast explosion, a rush of adrenaline. Quick snap of a finger decision making, risky gambles that sometimes pay off and sometimes leaves you on the edge of your seat wondering how Dream will get out of this one?
Ever wonder how the Potato War slow..planned out, methodical? It’s a long, drawn out war that took it’s toll on both participants, Squid and Techno, at the end of the day, it’s a tale of perseverance. Determination, and sheer fucking will. He nearly commited war crimes, his plans more..thought out. Slower, more methodical, as mentioned, instead of the extremely fast half baked plans and gambles that Dream makes barring the stuff he plans out and researches ahead of time, Techno’s plans are more of a slow burn. Slowly but steadily coming into fruition, more subtle.
You ever wonder how both of their careers contrast each other? Techno’s plan to take over youtube is simple, yet slow. Just make content. Well, he’s failing on that regard (/j). I say, writing this essay the same day he uploaded a video. He’s been at this for years now, slowly building out his community- and, unlike his upload schedule. His career is consistent. He was a Minecraft youtuber then, and he is a Minecraft youtuber now. He’s played other games, yes, but he’ll always be known as that one guy who’s really funny and has an amazing personality, and really good at minecraft.
Dream’s plan? Well, he’s studied the algorithm. He’s done his research, he’s bided his time and he’s waited for his perfect moment to get it. Luck shined upon him, and the golden opportunity presented itself upon him, and the man literally speedran youtube. Like, Jesus fuck, he’s gotten 20 million subs in the span of what- a year? Two years? A year and a half? I think we all know from the beginning of this post that I am just simply not the greatest at knowing time. But also, Dream’s career contrasts Techno’s, in a way. I won’t say he’s inconsistent, since that would put whatever Dream is doing in a negative connotation associated with the word, but I’ll say, he’s branching out. He’s made songs. He’ll probably do more!
The core difference between the two careers, I believe, is the fact that Techno will always be known for Minecraft. And the companion fact, is that one day, Dream will be known more for his songs, or for his acting, rather than being a Minecraft youtuber.
Now, enough about their careers! How about their friendships! Their relationships! Now, here is the reason I actually wanted to write this ramble, is that I noticed something while watching/rewatching some MCC vods and got enabled by my friends.
You know who you are.
How about we start with their similarities, for a break?
Both of them take the respective “leader” roles of their own groups, as seen by the many MCCs that Techno has teamed with Wilbur and Phil, and the times that Dream has teamed with George and Sapnap.
Both of them are confident, but show it in different ways, Techno has an ego that he inflates massively for laughs, but a low self esteem. Dream has a fairly high self esteem, a very healthy confidence that I one day aspire to have, but he’s still humble, he doesn’t have an ego.
And the way they help support their teammates are opposites too! Dream builds them up, complimenting them, praising them, giving tips and saying kind words, supporting them, all of that juicy stuff. And no, it does not warm my heart, no, it does not make me go soft, no, shut up, shut the fuck up go away shut up-
Anyhow! Ignoring what I just said, let’s talk about Techno. He doesn’t build his teammates/friends up, he brings himself down. Well, that’s to say he was somehow on unequal footing with them or treated them as less than him, he doesn’t. Instead, the rest view him as, well, a powerful figure (in-game), skilled, wise, and powerful, and only those traits are widely renowned by, and so people he just met or teamed with might get intimidated by this reputation. Techno combats this notion by “bringing himself down to their level,” even though he already treats others, well, more or less equally, he helps them feel better and gives them support by bringing himself down, words like “You’re better than this at I am!” Mostly paraphrased though, because the man is a tsundere and you can pry this notion off my cold, dead, hands-
And again! Ignoring what I just said! That’s a fun thing to do, isn’t it?
Now, I’ve been building up this notion of Techno being this slow, methodical planner and of Dream being this super fast and quick thinker, but where am I going with this? Where will I pull the threads together and tie a knot? Will I cut the threads?
Who the fuck knows? Wait- I do.
Ever wonder how Techno’s main pvp style, 1.8-, is fast? It’s extremely fast paced, with strafes and w-tapping and the fishing rod tactics, not to even mention combos, it’s an extremely quick flurry of strikes with a bunch of strategy to fall back on. Just like Dream.
Ever wonder how Dream’s main pvp style, 1.9+, it’s slower? More..broad strokes, methodical strikes, axe crits, more strategy and timing involved. Sure, you could make a case about this being his own, but come on! Methodical, slow, and strategy? Technoblade.
They’re yin and yang, contrasts of each other, but still the exact same. That’s why I think I enjoy them both so much, because even despite their differences, they’re still oh so similar and it’s really fascinating. Hell! Even their color schemes! Red and green! Literal contrasts! Technoblade and Dream are just that. Fundamentally the same person, but they just express themselves in contrasting ways.
Also, this was just a fun little ramble of me looking too much into the little details and most likely just small little coincidences, mostly because Rivalstwt is starving and we need food, so-
Come get your fucking food, bitches.
