Thank you for all your nice words and concerns. To be honest, I have no idea when I’ll feel better - it already feels like forever, so it’s hard to tell. If you follow me for some time, you propably noticed it keeps happening from time to time - I just got used to that.

That is a good question, dear Anon.

“i’ll kill him. with my bare hands, if i have to”

ok did anyone else really want to witness this outcome though?? for light to have exhausted all other options and become so frustrated and desperate and running out of time because L is closing in on him fast and he’s at his wits end?

if light didn’t have a supernatural death god executing what he himself couldn’t do, he might have never found out L’s real identity. almost likely so. certainly not in time to stop L from claiming checkmate. light would have to resort to his last option: killing L the old fashion way. he would have to actively, first-person murder someone for the first time in his life. light would convince himself of its ease, of its necessity and his preparation to get his hands dirty. though now literally so and what if, now, the series challenged light’s readiness to this resolve? using the notebook gives light that disconnect, that impersonal touch. that distance. what if we got to witness how light would react to using his bare hands? to feeling blood? to using force? to taking life himself? when i envision the grande finale, i don’t imagine any gun involvement or poisoning. in fact, after the exchange of fists and legs and heated words and loss of mind, i imagine light with his hands wrapped around L’s neck, tbh. and for L to be the first and only person light has to do this with would be very fitting, i think. 

another point of interest i can’t ignore is L’s phenomenal intuition. how would light go about taking L to a secluded area to kill him? what if this is where the “gaining his trust” plot point really served it’s importance? would L, still, knowing, agree to meet light anyway? if L still dies, but in this fashion, how would it affect light from then on out? how would it impact his psyche? if at all. would his dreams haunt him more? would he see a different ghost of L? am i the only one that really wanted to fucking see this happening? ?

i saw a post the other day that said ‘stop weighing people’s value by how much revenue they generate’ and agreed, and then i just stopped for a moment. because wow, i’ve come a long way? i mean, it’s not the same exactly, but when i was in school i hardcore believed that my worth as an individual was pretty much exclusively derived from my academic performance. i wasn’t quite so harsh on the people around me in terms of academics? but that was mostly because they all had other skills to boost their 'value’. like maybe they were good at sports, or could play an instrument, or were very beautiful, or something. i didn’t have those - or at least i didn’t believe i had those - so i just kept sinking my entire concept of self into the quality of my academic 'product’. it took a catastrophic mental breakdown to put the first serious dent in that, and going on four years gone from it i realize i’ve definitely grown into a healthier person all around? but that post gave me an odd little shock, reading it and agreeing to it without a voice in the back of my head saying except you. you’re worthless unless you’re producing results. i guess it’s a little pathetic, that my window of improvement has a benchmark labeled 'not constantly evaluating your objective worth on a scale of Garbage to Adequate’ - like, that seems like such a low bar to meet? - and it took me a long time to get here, but… i’m a little proud of myself, for that. i feel… good. generally, all-around baseline good. somehow despite everything that’s happening right now, and even despite occasional lapses, i’m doing okay? and i’m proud of that.

i love the inner world posts! ^^ what do you think kisuke's would be like?

Ahh! Thank you! 

As much as I’d like to say his inner world is a lab or something… I don’t think it would be. Actually, I think it would look more than a little bit like those training spaces he keeps making. Wide, falsely blue sky, neverending desert stretching beneath it. Stone and dust and dead trees. They’re all almost exactly the same, and they’re excellent for fighting, which makes me wonder if he’s unconsciously replicating part of his inner world. 

I think there would one very notable difference, though- Kisuke’s inner world centers on a wide, expansive lake. It’s smaller than you’d think, but bigger than you want. Deeper than you can fathom, shallower than a mirror. It’s whatever you need it most to be. It’s covered in red lotuses, sea-green leaves and reeds. It is the only sign of life other than Kisuke himself and Benihime. An oasis in the barren expanse of rock and dust. It is also bright, bloody red.

Benihime herself is a queen, richly dressed and never less than perfectly composed. She wears layer after layer of red kimono, gold painting her lips, her eyes, her hair. She’s cold, and vindictive, and bloodthirsty. She governs her realm with precision and ruthless strategy. She challenges Kisuke, forces him to confront the worst options, to consider the bloodiest paths before he can turn to the safe ones, the kind ones, the ones he wants to take. She never fails to remind him of what he could be. She sees into the heart of everyone, everything. She sees possibility, potential, where to strike and where to lift. She carries needle and thread in her fingertips and blood drips from her hands wherever she touches.

OUT.        get u a man who
1/ has anger issues
2/ is a huge crybaby
3/ cries when drunk
4/ gets overly attached to the people he cares about
5/ overly sentimental
6/ he’s very overprotective 
7/ naive
8/ reeks of unrequited love

doodled a human orisa idea and efi as a lil’ warmup!! i know this is gonna be a popular thing to draw but i wanted to give it my shot!

happy birthday to our dearest jungkook!
thank you for being you 

I took my father to see Rogue One today. I’ve wanted to take him for a while. I wanted my Mexican father, with his thick Mexican accent, to experience what it was like to see a hero in a blockbuster film, speak the way he does. And although I wasn’t sure if it was going to resonate with him, I took him anyway. When Diego Luna’s character came on screen and started speaking, my dad nudged me and said, “he has a heavy accent.” I was like, “Yup.” When the film was over and we were walking to the car, he turns to me and says, “did you notice that he had an accent?” And I said, “Yeah dad, just like yours.” Then my dad asked me if the film had made a lot of money. I told him it was the second highest grossing film of 2016 despite it only being out for 18 days in 2016 (since new year just came around). He then asked me if people liked the film, I told him that it had a huge following online and great reviews. He then asked me why Diego Luna hadn’t changed his accent and I told him that Diego has openly talked about keeping his accent and how proud he is of it. And my dad was silent for a while and then he said, “And he was a main character.” And I said, “He was.” And my dad was so happy. As we drove home he started telling me about other Mexican actors that he thinks should be in movies in America. Representation matters.

Witch Tip

Once you get rid of the line between magic and mundane, coming up with ideas is much less of a challenge. There is no “normal” you and “witchy” you. It’s all a conglomerate that creates the way you experience life as a whole.

So there’s one bit near the end of the Genocide Run that hit me pretty hard, personally. And as with most things that hit me very hard emotionally, it was a random almost throwaway line that wasn’t written to be focused on that much. But whether it intentionally held the meaning I took from it or not, it doesn’t change the fact that I DID take meaning from it.

When Flowey is monologuing near the very very end of the game and explaining what he went through, he talks about how he lacks the ability to feel anything for the people around him, and how desperately, frantically, he wishes he did. He talks about how, at first, he tried to help people. He talks about how at first it seemed to help, but every time it was time to let go, to move on, he got scared and couldn’t do it. He’d panic and reset instead. And how then he’d be right back where he started. And he would try helping everyone again.

But it became hollow. Everyone always said the exact same things, and did the exact same things. And nothing changed. And nothing new ever happened.

And eventually, just out of sheer desperation for SOMETHING new, he decided to kill everyone. And how that was at first a relief, but even that grew stale and empty as he did it over and over again. Until he was left with nothing, and there was nothing to care about, either for better or worse, but he couldn’t let go either. So he was trapped in this world where nothing ever changed, and he couldn’t make himself leave.

It’s a sad story, but it’s also a bit of a gut punch because of its implications.

Maybe in time, the person playing the game, the actual human being behind the keyboard, not the pixel character they control, would find themselves in the exact same situation. Eventually, things in a game stop changing. Characters always say the same things, do the same things. And maybe in time, as boredom takes over, the player would also try a genocide game just for SOMETHING new. But eventually even that will become empty and lead to nowhere after you do it enough.

I can’t really say if that’s true or not. I can’t say it’s false either.

But It’s 2 years now. And a lot of us are still here. And more importantly a lot of us still care. Quite deeply in fact.

And maybe we won’t care forever, maybe the same thing will happen, or more likely, we’d be the ones able to let go and move on to other things and let go. Maybe there’s no escaping that.

But it’s been 2 years, and at least for now, we’re still here.

There is also the possibility I’ve considered, that since the insane success of the game was never expected or anticipated at all, that the level of love it caused in gamers was a complete and utter surprise, maybe their ability to never fall into that cycle of apathy and just how long they can keep going, caring as hard as ever, will also be a complete surprise that was never foreseen.

Or even more simply, maybe Flowey just needed to be shown, as with so many things, he was wrong about that too.

Who knows. Honestly I can’t say how things will look in time. It could either way.


But at least by year 2 we were still here.
