Okay…just bear with me…Lara was already on the island when Sam and the crew get there…Lara and Sam didn’t know each other before this…Lara’s the only living woman on the island and the Solarii have, like, legends and stuff about her…Like, don’t go in the Faceless Woman’s territory or you’ll disappear…The Faceless Woman kills anyone that’s in the East forest at night…but listen okay, she still rescues Sam when she catches wind of Mathias’ plan…and honestly just wHOLE NEW LOVE STORY……….. forgive me i’m very stressed and this stupid idea was relaxing………….
Deep down I know my purpose is greater than anything I can even realize.
Greater than anything I can fathom
Greater than anything my imagination can stir up.
I know I’ve been through hell. And I know I’ve survived it. I know I’ve seen the depths of it - the parts of hell people can’t make up in their minds because it would drive them slightly past insanity.
I know I’ve lived there for long periods of time, thinking I would never get out - thinking I would never see daylight again.
But I was for damn sure not going to let that stop me. I wasn’t molded to be weak. I wasn’t molded to be anything other than resilient.
I was tested to be something greater, steel is molded in fire - I was created to withstand blazes that could burn villages - I was created for more.
Adversity like that is only given to those with a destiny to pull others out of the fire - a mission that I have pledged my life to.
A pregnant woman gives birth to her kid by suffering through what feels like squeezing a watermelon through her nostrils. Artists endure suffering that feels like pulling the entire universe out of their ass to create their works. Everyone has times when they’ve come up against a wall and feel like giving up on everything and running away. But you mustn’t forget that during these times when the going is rough, the soul inside of you will try to create something to break through that wall.
A 15 year old just spent time arguing with me to white knight an artist who owes my friend a very tiny commission for nearly a year and I called them out on it. They also owe me a correction on my commission. A correction of the hair style on my commission. Which they have told me they’ll fix 6 months ago. 6 months to fix the hair on a pixel doll. Is apparently totally acceptable to this kid who admitted they had no experience in pixel art, “but it looked time consuming”.
Literally every excuse they threw at me only further proved how incompetent that artist is at working on commissions and they managed to make the artist look even worse by attempting to defend them.
“But they go to high school and have high school work!” There have been plenty of weekends and holidays within this year.
“But they made apology journals!” And yet they haven’t uploaded a single commission afterwards, instead taking more, and uploading personal art. That doesn’t seem like a genuine apology.
“But everyone has different levels of endurance!” Then this artist shouldn’t take commissions.
A 15 year old tried to talk to me about time management and high school.
A 15 year old. A child almost 10 years younger than me.
Wanted to argue with me about my god damned profession.
So here’s a protip to every artist: If you don’t have the time management and endurance to take on commissions, DON’T TAKE COMMISSIONS.
Finished playing through The Last of Us tonight (and by playing, I mean peeking out from underneath a blanket while pajamurai did all the fighting). The story was incredible and intense and I wish there was more!
