(never feel bad about doing this whether it’s to deepen the character, have fun, or build interesting headcanons! Even shit about what their favorite type of jelly bean is makes them feel more complex to you and that’s fun! GO NUTS!)
It’s pretty fun comparing older Tweek’s design to his parents’ designs, mainly because it seems like they went to the trouble of combining his parents’ features and then building off that. I immediately noticed that Tweek’s nose is similar to his dad’s, but on closer inspection, it’s actually quite a bit shorter, the bridge dips in more (a little more like his mother’s nose), and the shape at the bottom is a bit sharper and less bulbous. His brows are also pretty much his father’s, only blond.
Aside from the brows and nose, Tweek much more closely resembles his mother than his father. Their side profiles are pretty much the same; Tweek’s face is just longer. They both have small, defined lips (though obviously she wears lipstick) and their jaws are similarly square. That seems like a kindness, for Tweek not to have to resemble his awful father too much, even though his parents are both pretty cute (and pretty awful).
Tweek also has dark circles and high cheekbones. I’ve seen people refer to these lines as wrinkles, but his eye lines are the exact same thing Thomas from Le Petit Tourette had as a child so I think they’re dark circles from insomnia. Frankly, Mr. “I don’t sleep… ever” over here probably should have had them as a child too. The length and placement of the cheek lines suggests high cheekbones to me, or possibly fat loss due to past stimulant use. Lastly, he has a bit of hair recession around the temples and sideburns like his father’s only slightly longer.
I think he’s cute af tbh. I like that he has some pretty features, but is also masc and scruffy - it feels like a good visual representation of Tweek’s characterization on the show and part of what makes him so unique. He’s just kind of unapologetically himself like there’s no other way to be.
In terms of his behavior in the special, I think they struck a pretty good balance of keeping his vocal and motor tics, but not keeping the (likely stimulant-induced) tremor. The tics and the anxiety are a part of his life, but they don’t define him. It’s frustrating when parts of the fandom reduce Tweek to a twitching, irrational mess when the show has always shown him to be reacting to real problems (i.e. negligent parents, being specifically targeted by North Korea, Cartman). He seems a lot more self-possessed now, away from those negative influences, and I hope his life stays good when Stan and friends start screwing around with the timeline. Those kids screw around too much. They’re horsing.
I know it’s only 8~10 seconds, and I am probably overthinking about it. But can we talk about this scene of adult Creek, please🥺🥺🥺
❗ SPOILERS ❗
Craig：Hey, guys, it’s Tweek and Craig. Kyle：Oh, hey, how are you guys? Craig：We’re good. Tweek：Aghhhhhh, I have a lot of anxiety being back with all these people!!
I love this too much to focus on my work, here is why:
(1) Craig’s introduction seems that he holds on to any chance to show affection, he is truly proud of their relationship. Also it’s lovely that he said Tweek first🥺
(2) Craig’s smile and response. I’m surprised that Craig greeted with a smile (and he smiled throughout the conversation, let’s discuss this in (4)), I supposed he would be like😐 And the smile made his response like he actually means it, he has a good life with his husband honey. (Even though it’s perhaps just because he grows up and knows how to greet others properly…)
(3) Tweek’s reply, not full of scream, panic, or chaos, he talked about his FEELING. This reminds me of the final part of S21E02, where Craig guided him to talk about his feeling.
(4) Craig smiled even after Tweek’s reply. I’d like to believe it’s because he knew that Tweek’s emotions were stable at the time, the reply is nothing but some complain which is familiar to Craig (maybe it sounds adorable in his opinion). Even if something happened, he can soothe Tweek’s anxiety.
And Tweek is actually calmer in most of the times of the film??? Tweek also knows Craig will help him calm down, so he is reassured to have Craig by his side.
Can’t help but the thought of their long-time chemistry with each other is consuming me?????
40 years, they have been supporting each other, being with each other, practicing sharing their feelings and emotions. So Tweek no longer needed to others guide him to talk about his feeling, and Craig was no longer depressed often, he can delightful smile more.
(In fact, the first thing I notice is Tweek’s proper button-up shirt, I can’t decide which one is better: He relaxed enough to button up his shirt himself, or Craig buttons up Tweek’s shirt every day. Either way shows they are a happy couple and I Love this so much that I want to cry.)
✨Their relationship is healthy and blissful.✨
The only unhealthy and problematic parts are me, my brain, and my English (mistakes are everywhere, sorry for that). I really should go to study for tomorrow instead of shipping like crazy. I don’t even know why I spend hours searching for words just to scREAM I’M SOOOO HAPPY CREEK ARE STILL TOGETHER AND LIVES HAPPILY!!!
Ok so this is so really great character development
Before when they were kids, Craig had to coax Tweek to talk about his emotions and what was making him feel that way.
And now, Tweek just says how he’s feeling and what’s making him feel that way.
“I have a lot of anxiety being back with all these people!”
He acknowledged his emotions and said how he feels and said he feels that way because of all the people.
This is character development at its finest :)
