Long ago, two races ruled over Earth: HUMANS and MONSTERS. One day, war broke out between the two races. After a long battle, the humans were victorious. They sealed the monsters underground with a magic spell.
There’s something about sitting alone in the dark that reminds you how big the world really is, and how far apart we all are. The stars look like they’re so close, you could reach out and touch them. But you can’t. Sometimes things look a lot closer than they are.

It’s weird how the conscious decision to take something seriously opens up a world of meaning. Like, it’s so easy, you know? To just dismiss things as stupid or nonsensical or immature. But there’s a pattern of behavior to be found even in stupid nonsense. Especially in movies, which something I read recently reminded me are multimillion dollar pieces of art with all kinds of people working together to tell a story to the fullest extent of the medium.
I guess it’s just kind of flooring me how much meaning there seems to be behind everything. Both intentional and unintentional. There’s just so much going on.
