never happens!

throwback to 2011:

you are the ‘c’ of a quadratic function.
ax²+bx+c.
yes, that last factor is you.
now, suppose ‘c’ has any numerical value,
positive or negative,
other than zero
(other than zero because you are alive right now)
and
'ax²’ and 'bx' are the other people;
your parents, your brothers and sisters,
your friends, your lover.
these people disappear when
'x’ is at zero, right?
the function would also equal zero
but,
as i said earlier,
you are the 'c’ of this quadratic function.
in your case, the numerical value of 'c’ is never zero.
you always have a value.
and sometimes,
when 'x’ is at zero,
‘c’ will still have a value and
you will be the only person who is going to be there,
for your own self.
so, take care of yourself.
the art of self care is
very difficult to master at times
and still, you are the 'c’ of this quadratic function.
you will always have a value.

I made such a huge mistake. It was poor preparation honestly. 

I beat FFXII last night finally, and I wanted to try new game plus so I did. Everything was going as well as could be. 

(You start at level 90 so, you’re strong.)

As a result of this newfound strength my confidence soared into vertigo-inducing heights. That is… until HE came.

Now you’re asking me with bated breath: “God damn it, just get to the point what happened?!”

WELL I’M GETTING THERE. 

So, for those who have played FFXII… you know the Flowering Cactoid is an early game hunt. It’s supposed to be easy. Knowing this, I was screwing around with it taking vid for gifs. And I’m level 90, what’s the worst that could happen? My lack of respect for my opponent would be my downfall. 

Did you know… that the Flowering Cactoid has the potential to blind you via melee attacks? Because I went to school that day, and the lesson was: 

“Excruciatingly Slow Beating by Tiny Bi-Pedal Succulent.”

I couldn’t hit him. At all. I’m level 90 and this vertically challenged son of a bitch cactus is dodging my every swing. I’ve never seen anything like it. 

THE FACE OF A KILLER DESERT PLANT HE’S FLOWERED AND READY TO PHOTOSYNTHESIZE YOUR ASS.

I’m screaming, I’m guzzling potions, I’m swinging in absolute desperation. Trying to delay my inevitable fate, but it was all for vain.

So to close: Yes, the Flowering Cactoid went through 4559 of my new game plus HP with nothing more than hits for 15-18 damage. And I couldn’t land a SINGLE attack while blind. NOT ONCE.

I have a newfound fear and respect for this unstoppable force of desert foliage.

here’s what i want from a ‘the adventure zone’ tv show:
  • all the dialogue stays pre much the same
  • i don’t care who plays kravitz, but he can’t be a british actor. the assorted bad accents have to be tv canon
  • titus burgess plays taako. justin said that once and now it’s all i want. i bet he’d be down.
  • griffin writes some new original scenes. mostly between npcs so we don’t miss out on anything dnd wise, but just more stuff with like davenport, and between lucretia/lup, the stuff griffin talked about in ttazz 
  • everyone is played by whoever but griffin still does the narrator at the beginning
  • the opening theme is super sitcomy, friends style
  • taako says ‘i’m taako, you know, from tv?’ and he winks at the camera every. time. he says that line
