and the secret is nothing

You know the one nice part of having a crippling phobia?

Remembering the last one that consumed your life, and how now it doesn’t

All this anxiety and obsession will pass

Just how LImp Dick is the ending? Also something that doesnt make sense due to TNO is that BJ has half health in this one from his injuries yet in TNO he was a vegetable that didnt move on his own for like 10 years or something yet the moment you gain control hes got 100 health and is able to kill 50 billion nazis without breaking a sweat

The ending is so limp dicked that I was genuinely shocked when the credits started rolling. 

Like I said, there was no final boss. No climactic battle. Nothing. You have one Ordinary Battle, a cutscene plays, and then the credits start rolling. 

Once the credits finish you’re back on the submarine (which is, for story reasons, not where I thought you’d end up) and Grace says “ok BJ now go do the side-missions haha” 

I looked up what happens when you do the side-missions. Nothing happens. You get to play a secret level but you don’t get any sort of real ending. It’s insane. 

Joseph Christiansen Secret/Cult Ending Manuscript

I went digging through the Level 18 gibberish and sorted out all the dialogue into a manageable manuscript if anyone is interested in reading this secret wild ride. None of the dialogue is labeled so I did my best to interpret who was saying what so any mistakes are my bad. It took a few hours to put together but I felt like some people would like more than just a summary so here is the full text:

MC will be short for Main Character or your player.

Level 18- Joseph Bad Ending or True Ending ( Who knows? )

This appears to take place after MC and Joseph Christiansen engage in sex in the yacht, except you don’t wake up to what you expect. This takes place in Cult_Dungeon1.

START: You’re A Monster

MC:

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaawn. What time is it? Must have been asleep for ages. I wonder what will happen now that Mary is gone? What about Joseph’s kids? And how will Amanda feel about all this? That’s what matters… . Well, we all have each other. I guess time will tell, right? Better get up and greet the day.

Am I tied up?! What the hell?! How did I get here? What’s going on?! Joseph? Anybody?

You’re probably just dreaming. Why would there be a… Don’t panic… . a dungeon. An evil dungeon. Why would there be an evil dungeon here? This can’t be real. Maybe I had too much Twilight Rouge. I’m dreaming, or something.

???:

Oh, I guarantee this is real.

Small things that make me happy

Ok yes this image is a little creepy, I admit. However what it represents to me is really important, so I thought I would share. (Warning: unnecessarily long story below)

So I was born without either of my top two (adult) lateral incisors (The second to front). When my baby lateral incisors fell out the adult canine teeth came through there instead, and so I ended up with four canine teeth. We didn’t discover this until I went to get braces, at which point the orthodontist determined they would have to remove the baby canines, and move the adult canines to their proper place before they could put in some form of fake teeth in the gaps. This made the process of having braces more painful than in a more typical situation, but it also left me with gaps in my teeth while I waited for the teeth to slowly move to their proper positions. You can imagine how awkward that must have looked, and how upsetting that would’ve been for me and my self-confidence. When the gaps were finally big enough they attached some fake teeth to the brackets, and they were good although of course I was still in braces so it didn’t resolve my insecurity entirely. When the braces came off they couldn’t stay, so they gave me a clear retainer with teeth painted in, which was far more effective than it sounds. The problem with that was that I had to take them out whenever I ate, and unsurprisingly taking a retainer out of your mouth at a time when everyone is gathered to eat isn’t a great way to avoid people noticing you are missing teeth. Luckily they soon gave me an a custom denture that I’ve worn since, and it looks fantastic, indistinguishable from the real things unless you’re deliberately looking. Even still I’m not entirely free from my teeth related insecurities. I mean who wants to have dentures before 60 let alone before 20! The adhesive box I use is covered in pictures of smiling elderly folk, how does that make me feel? No one my age has false teeth.

Imagine me seeing this in one of my favourite shows then. Once I got over the initial weirdness, I realised that this is something I hadn’t seen before. You see all sorts of people represented in television these days, they’ve done a great job of including representatives for all sorts of people with different abilities and disabilities alike. But a teenager with fake teeth? Seeing this kind of helped in a weird way, like I know it was for a visual gag, but to see someone else with a problem like mine? In some ways it made me feel validated.

I know that minor dental issues are quite trivial compared to serious disabilities, but for those affected it can forge some really strong insecurities. As such to see Melissa (a character I already really liked) reveal this to her friends, it kind of felt like I wasn’t alone. I know these are fictional characters, and they aren’t quite the same age as me (much closer than 60 though!) so it’s a bit odd, but it just made me smile I guess.

Sorry for the long post I just thought I’d share something that made me feel good a while back :) It’s always important to look on the brighter side of life.

okay, so, maybe, just maybe, you are not the mythical creature that I made you to be.
maybe you are just a person and we weren’t destined to meet.
nothing cosmic about the way you showed up a year after I fell in love with a pretty boy at a party.
nothing special about the way you kept secrets and played your cards right.
maybe, you are just a person who got a little lonely.
and maybe, you are just a person, who needed to save something.
so, maybe, none of this had anything to do with me.
maybe that is why you seem so surprised, when I ask you for a reason.
you just didn’t know that you were supposed to have one.
