Every few years remember about the Metal Gear franchise, go through the games, read the lore again. This year I found the MGS1 artbook I got when I was 11, and now not being 11 and looking back through it I’ve really gone on a journey of wonderment and confusion looking at the early versions of everything. LET ME SHOW YOU HOW:

Extreme Fishin’ Miller

Casual Snake

Rad Liquid & Sad Liquid

Good ol’ Faceless Frank

Mantis concepts feat. such strong looks as ‘lunchbreak’, ‘invisible handcuffs’, and ‘dick sounds’.

Otacon and Otacon run through a tiny face filter.

/These/

Snake-Meryl (Sneryl) and Flamethrower Mei Ling who I am ASHAMED do not exist

Utterly terrifying Veiny Raven and less terrifying Mange Raven

And of course, Punk Rock Mantis.

Young Meryl Streep Appreciation Post

“Integrate what you believe in every single area of your life. Take your heart to work and ask the most and best of everybody else, too.”
-Meryl Streep

I just realized that I refer to all of the middle-aged actresses I drool over as my wives and, simultaneously, when I am they are being adorable I call them my babies. Also my children when I feel an abundance of pride and Mom when they show plutonic affection for others.

I’m surely not vanilla by any means, but that makes me severely uncomfortable.
