wearing shades keeps you safe from horrorterror/grimdark influence
on rose’s suggestion, dave takes his shades off on derse. he can then hear and see the horrorterrors.
this suggests that there might be other influences that can be neutralized by wearing shades.
and there is one character in particular that has, time and time again, shown his proficiency in entrancing others.
this powerful, cursed juju was guarded by bro, who made sure dave wore shades at all times, even as a baby.
it’s something we even see in dirk, who wears layer upon layer of shades. the dude will literally not go without shades ever.
DOES THIS MAN THINK OF EVERYTHING?
