its just a bad dream

The post about Dream Daddy’s announcement got more attention on tumblr in less than 24 hours (100k notes) than any other post about ANY video game announced/shown at E3 2017

In other words, a gay dad dating sim created by a bunch of YouTube comedians who play Mario and make dick jokes for a living got more attention and hype than games with 4-fuckass-K HD graphics or some shit, and giant budgets, owned/created by huge companies who overall take themselves extremely seriously

i have literally no sense of time beyond a couple days, either forwards or backwards

something happened a week ago? sure, but it feels the same to me as if it was three weeks ago, or three days. something else happened? ok, but i cant tell you if it came before the other thing, or after, or even on the same day

& if something is more than a week in the future, it just doesnt exist. i cant plan for it. i cant remember any plans people tell me about it. i cant prepare for anything beyond the horizon

its never had too much of an impact on me, but im scared of whatll happen if im a suspect for a crime

‘what were you doing 8pm last friday?’ something, im sure. maybe nothing. honestly i feel like ive only existed this second. ‘you told us this sequence of events before, but now youve changed the order. are you lying?’ i mean im not trying to deceive you but theres a 90% chance that anything i tell you is a false memory. isnt there someone else you can ask? if i try to give you the story again, itll be different again

!! HAPPY ONE YEAR WITH ASTRO !!

in this photoset you can see just a fracture of all astro did in their first year as a group. things these six boys accomplished in a year is stunning. they managed to create their own fresh sound, participate in various events, become faces of brands, participate in a number of variety programs while simultaneously working to put out new music every 3-4 months. thank you for your hard work, astro. thank you fantagio for molding these six bright boys into a group and a family. thank you astro for all the happiness you made us feel over the past year. thank you for the heart-warming music you put out. thank you for making every concept about your fans. thank you for loving us unconditionally. thank you for being born. i love you more than i could express.

let’s go together forever!!

A Better World

“Remember our plans to sail around the world on a boat? Take this book, get on a boat, and sail as far away as you can, to the edge of the Earth!”

On this Earth, my brother listened to me and took Journal 1 away from Gravity Falls…

You know what always was left bugging me

why were cats like Birchfall, Thornclaw and Mousewhisker training in the dark Forest?

I mean, it was established pretty clearly that 4 out of 5 cats training there had something that troubled them in real life, such as family issues or bullying, so why were those three toms training there?

I mean I know Dark Forest cats are master manipulators, but a warrior like Thornclaw REMEMBERS what Tigerstar was like so there’s no way he could be oblivious to any of that.

Idk I just think that learning about their motivations could make a decently interesting novella all together.

Like maybe Thornclaw felt that all his other siblings had accomplished “more” than he had by raising families and one becoming a medicine cat,

and Mousewhisker might have struggled with his identity because he wasn’t Clanborn

and Birchfall… well maybe he was just dumb but anyway.

sometimes i just think about chenle and jisung meeting years before their debut and how their performances were literally right after each other?? and how they miraculously met again under the same company and same group??? yall if that isnt destiny then i dont know what lmao

I know my shitpost from yesterday is blowing up, but damn here’s some more from a friendo of mine. We’ve been talking nonstop about this game.

an actual dream i had


bonus:

pyukumuku gijinka in honour of a plushie i ordered O: hes a nurse….

tbh i see a lot of womenz complaining about the joseph ending and a lot of menz defending it

a lotta of women saying that they were lied to about the tone of the game, that they just wanted to play a non-confrontational story about cute men in their fluffy little relationships

lotta men reading josephs rout as a cautionary tale about a very real thing that happens in the lgbt community, on par with a lot of the other emotional bombshells that are dropped in other routs

lotta women raging about how this isnt good enough for them and the project should be boycotted

lotta men saying “well its not like we have a lot to choose from”

funny that. 

most fandoms are shit.
enjoy the show
enjoy the game
enjoy the book
enjoy the manga
enjoy the sport
enjoy the movie
and don’t let the fandom ruin it for you. they are the vast minority that have huge voices, make your own voice.

announcement

the good news! remember in January when I went on hiatus to apply to grad school? remember in March when I went on a giant trip for a mysterious interview??

I’m pleased to announce I was accepted into my number one program!! I’ll be going off to graduate school in the fall to study fun things and work super hard. :3 I’m really REALLY excited. this is the culmination of a couple years of hard work and a whole lot of onion stress, so I’m just. I’m really, really happy. (my number one school!!!) 

bad news: I have a lot of things to figure out in the next few months, not least of which is how I’m funding this. Like most educational programs in this country, this one comes with a giant price tag that’s currently entirely insurmountable for me. So - dream on one hand, money on the other. I don’t yet know how it’ll balance, or if it even will. (anyone have an extra 100k lying around?) The school’s also on the complete other side of the country, so I have a giant move and adventure ahead.

On top of all this, I’ve been putting a lot of pressure on myself to get fic and fandom events done and it’s spiraled out of control. I don’t possess a strong ability to say no to people or fun activities, so it’s just built up to the point where this self-imposed level of anxiety and stress is not healthy for me. So I’m stepping back from tumblr for a little while to see if I can’t get a handle on everything - IRL stress, fic stress, any or all of the above.

Worse news, maybe: I’m going on hiatus for a while. I have some things queued and will be around to do a thing or two (events I’m running), but for the most part I’m not here. This also means no Hunk Day or Shiro Day for the foreseeable future. If you’d like to take up one of those please shoot me a message and I’ll walk you through it :) it’s not hard.

tldr; I GOT INTO GRAD SCHOOL, I’m more stressed than I should be, I’m going on hiatus at least for a bit <3 tag me or @ me or drop me a message if there are things you want me to see in the meantime. I’ll respond when I can. :)

Thank you all for your support!

Okay, here’s the thing, fuck all writing advice that tells you how to do your story or write your scenes, because guess what! THEY ARE NOT THE ONE’S WRITING THE STORY!!! I can not stress this enough, you are the one with the vision for how YOUR story is supposed to go. Only you know how to tell this story. Only you. Fuck anyone who’s like “Prologues are bad, blah, blah blah,” “Don’t kill your main character off early, I feel cheated, blah, blah, blah” or “Starting off with a dream sequence makes me feel like I’ve been lied to” GUESS WHAT ASSHOLES THAT’S WHAT YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO FEEL LIKE, WE WRITE THINGS TO INVOKE A FEELING, BE IT GOOD OR BAD, ITS A FEELING TO GET YOU TO UNDERSTAND HOW THE CHARACTERS FEEL DUMBASS

honestly;;; it’s so sad wtf i’m so sad.  i’d always headcanoned that sabo has nightmares about ace’s death but the fact that this is the dream he has is almost worse???  because it means he has to spend countless mornings being woken up by the realization that it wasn’t real and come to terms with the fact that ace actually is gone all over again
