They tell me not to worry,
but I can hear my shadow,
and it tells me,
“If someone loves you they’re lying,
you belong in the darkness with me,”
and 9 times out of 10,
those are the only words I can believe.
"You know, if I didn't have you so much, I'd quite like you." Yet another line in The End that murdered me and stole my first born
the entirety of The End was designed to kidnap my soul tbh it destroyed me. Shadow said this right?? All of his lines (especially the shagic chapters) have wrecked me inside and out we need a support group. My personal favourite that keeps me up at night is “this is…someone who’s with me” like if you can’t say boyfriend anymore say his name loser it’s like he wants all of Ikea to know they’re hate-snogging or something.
Oh my god and am I the only one who is torn up inside wondering who stripped Shadowman??? down to his boxers??? unnecessarily???
While going through my drafts looking for things to add to my queue, I found this, which I’d apparently written but never posted. I feels like now is the appropriate time to do so.
I had a thought, and I am probably not the first person to notice this so please pardon me if someone else has mentioned this first BUT I am excited and want to talk about this.
So Umbreon’s markings look like a solar eclipse, right? And this makes sense, because the “umbra” is the darkest part of a shadow, and specifically during a solar eclipse, it’s the darkest part of the moon’s shadow, where the total eclipse is visible from.
What I didn’t realize until just now is that Espeon has this connection too! During a lunar eclipse, the moon doesn’t disappear. Instead, due to interference from the Earth’s atmosphere, it turns red, like the gem on Espeon’s forehead!
For the last couple years, I’ve comforted myself by saying I’m in my
“early 70s,” but math is simple and unforgiving. Today is my 75th
birthday, and God, the years do fly.
I’m not here for your well wishes; this is hardly a milestone I’m
excited about. I’m glad to still be here, of course, but I find I have
less and less to live for with every passing year. My bones ache, my
kids live far away, and the other side of my bed has been empty for just
over eight months now. In fact, once I cast my vote against that
goddamned Trump this November, I may have nothing to live for at all.
I went digging through the Level 18 gibberish and sorted out all the dialogue into a manageable manuscript if anyone is interested in reading this secret wild ride. None of the dialogue is labeled so I did my best to interpret who was saying what so any mistakes are my bad. It took a few hours to put together but I felt like some people would like more than just a summary so here is the full text:
MC will be short for Main Character or your player.

Level 18- Joseph Bad Ending or True Ending ( Who knows? )
This appears to take place after MC and Joseph Christiansen engage in sex in the yacht, except you don’t wake up to what you expect. This takes place in Cult_Dungeon1.

START: You’re A Monster
Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaawn. What time is it? Must have been asleep for ages. I wonder what will happen now that Mary is gone? What about Joseph’s kids? And how will Amanda feel about all this? That’s what matters… . Well, we all have each other. I guess time will tell, right? Better get up and greet the day.
Am I tied up?! What the hell?! How did I get here? What’s going on?! Joseph? Anybody?
You’re probably just dreaming. Why would there be a… Don’t panic… . a dungeon. An evil dungeon. Why would there be an evil dungeon here? This can’t be real. Maybe I had too much Twilight Rouge. I’m dreaming, or something.
I found the cult ending thing in the game files but it was all jubled and in the wrong order so i did my best to transcribe it (also i accidentally deleted half of this post the first time I wrote this and i am d y i n g)
Your grimoire doesn’t need to be pretty. Every scribble, crossed out line, or stain adds to the personality and appeal. If I have two books of shadow in front of me, one that’s pristine and white and cute, and one that’s overstuffed and smells like ink and aged paper… I’m always gonna pick reality’s masterpiece, not a man made fantasy.
