I was playing the Hoshido route because a friend of mine ask me for. And since I loved her so much I played that route for an entire day… making this and that, promoving the sweet bros Deere/Dwyer and Shigure and falling in love with Silas/Kaze’s support omg is so funny and cute that I couldn’t help.
Best buddies ever <3 and God bless the hack S support between them
so we went to Nami Island and Petite France!!!! omg ang ganda sa Nami island!! ang peaceful niya ganern tas we saw a peacock pagala gala lang dun AHAHAHAHHAHA but ofcourse, sulitin mo na din magpicture habang nandun ka diba! AHAHAHA while we were there naalala ko yung sa exs and whys HAHAHAHA sila liza and Enrique omg ganern hahahahha soon gusto ko din may magpropose sakin dyan sa Nami Island hay goals. walang may pake, ok? HAHHAHAA so yun after sa Nami nagsakay ulit kami sa boat or basta! then sakay ng bus papunta sa petite france and kung napanuod nyo yung My love from the star then for sure alam nyo yan!!!! omg do min joon my labs. HAHHAAHHAHA and ang cute dyan hehehe after that byahe na ulit pabalik sa hotel.
So months before fates was announced/released I had my heart set on Jakob ((initially)) I was like ye he seems interesting and a cutie. Then, I sat down looked at Marx for a good minute and said “…mmm okay yeah I change my mind.” BUT as I’m playing the game and looking at both characters and support convos I’m having a uh…hard time choosing.
((ps yes this is my kamui, Erina, buuut since it’s a shits and giggles thing I didn’t put her name up there because I was fooling around with it today , plus it was also a test on doing the text generator thingy))
STORY TIME I first changed Silas to a lady to get his kids with Kaze and forgot that midori doesn’t show up till after chapter 15 because plot reasons. SO BEFORE CHAPTER 15 I went in and made him a lady Again just in case so I would for sure get midori. So I haven’t recruited her yet but I was just doing my castle stuff.
AND I FREQUENT THE HOT SPRING IN HOPES OF CATCHING MY SAIZO HUSBAND THERE BUT I FOUND THIS INSTEAD AND IM LAUGHING SO HARD IM GONNA THROW UP BECAUSE SILAS IS IN A BIKINI.
The best part is he didn’t freak out and send me away like a girl normally would be had his normal “this bath rocks” dialogue and I’m just sitting here staring at his boobs like “is this what childbirth did to u”
Thank you so much for this hack without u I would have never seen Silas and his mom boobs.
June - what is the best thing you’ve ever experienced? 25 - what is your favorite childhood memory? Have funnn! :D
Thanks so much Sammy ILY
Best thing I’ve ever experienced - Unplugged with my besties, Silas, Julia, and Lauryn. Omg we had a prank war and it was insane. Unplugged is basically a summer camp with no electronics allowed, which I thought I was gonna hate, but I ended up loving.
Favorite childhood memory - DISNEYWORLD WITH MY FAM. Can’t beat that, tbh.
I love you Sammy again thanks so much for this you have no idea how happy this made me.
Huhu lakas ng boses ni neighbor. Mukhang lq sila ni gf niya omg. Hope you guys make up tomorrow. Pero mga bessy lakas ng boses ni kuya medj dapat private na usapan nila. I have no intention to listen pero ang lakas talaga.
It was like standing in the middle of the loud, crazy crowd, not knowing what to do first: jump for joy, scream, or cry.
I couldn’t even remember what I did first. Or if I did it altogether. All I remember was that all the time, right at the first throw of the ball on the first set until its last hit on the floor at that 25th mark on the fourth set, I was praying.
I wasn’t actually praying for the Lady Eagles to win. All I ever prayed for was for them to give a good fight. That may there be no injuries on both camps, and that may He bless the players with their A-games on that do-or-die match.
I just trusted His will, for I know that He would only give the win to the team that has the biggest and the most deserving hearts.
I came to the Big Dome, setting the expectations of my family. They are Ateneo fans too, but not as ‘fangirl’ as me. They watch the games on TV but rarely watch live. They know the players but not as well as I do. They know the Ateneo Lady Eagles as a team but they don’t know their story.
How they’re too young and less experienced as a team, and how they have been struggling, losing some of the keep players last season.
So I thought they might get disappointed if ever the Lady Eagles lose.
I kept setting their minds, telling them it would really be okay for me if the girls lose. They got Game 1, what more could I ask for? But my tita, from time to time, told me, “Nakaya nga nila ‘yong una eh. Kaya nila ‘yan.”
I just smiled whenever she said that, and I was like, “Parang mas mababaliw ako kapag pumasok ang Ateneo sa finals!”
Well, not that I really didn’t believe they’d win, but it was easier to think that they would lose against NU because it was what everybody believed. It’s going to be NU and DLSU in the finals, plus the fact that they were twice beaten by NU in the eliminations. I knew they’ve got the skills, the talent, the unity and the hardwork. I knew they can make it but I recognized, too, that it’s not going to be easy.
I wasn’t ‘not believing’ but I was just trying not to expect.
I tried to be a matured fan so I set modest expectations in mind.
So, imagine my delight when they got the first set. I was literally jumping, screaming while praying and taking pictures and whatever. I didn’t even mind the cameras rolling (although I saw myself in one of the replays, looking crazy, jumping for joy).
Who even cared about being seen on TV? The #BigBlueCrowd was too happy, excited and overwhelmed. What with the eleven-drum set by the Ateneo Blue Babble Battalion (kudos to them, by the way), the #BigBlueCrowd literally dominated the Big Dome and made a thundering noise whenever the Lady Eagles get a point.
There was a debate going on in my mind. It was like being torn between “OMG kaya nga nila! Shocks, grabe, nakuha nila first set! Woohoo!“ and that "Noooo, huwag ka munang umasa. Isang set pa lang ‘yan, kumalma ka, utang na loob.’ thoughts.
And then my tita said, “Sabi ko sa’yo kaya nila eh.”
But apparently, the second set was a total meltdown, and while the crowd tried to be as noisy and as lively as it was during the first set, it really hurt to see the score.
And there was fear, too, because that time, NU was already getting their game. There was this, "Shet. Ito na ang NU. Gising na.”
The next two sets didn’t really give all of us the chance to sit back and relax. It’s a tight ball game, without any team leading big enough to be complacent.
But seriously, the next two sets were the loudest.
The screams, the chants, the drums. The boos. The cheers and the jeers. Everything was there. At one point I thought the floor was literally shaking. I didn’t mind, though. It was a tough match and the Lady Eagles were fighting. Fighting real hard.
You can just imagine how the Big Dome erupted when they snatched the third set.
That time, I was screaming "Thank You, Lord! Thank You, Mamy Mary,” hoping they would hear me from heaven.
But I didn’t. I was too happy and the crowd was too noisy to even calm. The sea of blue was celebrating. I even saw some, exchanging high fives, hugging each other.
The #BigBlueCrowd felt they were already winners. Why not? Their favorite team - young, struggling, doubted and counted out - had just won two sets in its second attempt to snatch the finals ticket from the Number 2 team.
The fourth set was a more relaxed one. At the back of my mind, I really wanted to believe we’d be getting this last set but the thought of the Lady Eagles going to the finals really gave me goosebumps, so I chose to set it aside and enjoy the game, one point at a time. I was really praying they’d finish it, though I knew that Lady Bulldogs wouldn’t give it up that easy. I knew, as competitive as they are, they would want to take revenge.
They were as hungry as any Top 2 team in any league would be to get to the finals. But I guess their hunger wasn’t that bad enough.
The Araneta Coliseum just erupted with that Valdez hit that ended the match.
I cried. And I knew thousands of those in the Big Dome and those that were in front of their television sets and cellphones were crying too.
Crying out of happiness.
Crying out of pride.
As Charlie in The Perks of Being a Wallflower puts it, “In that moment, I swear, we were infinite.”
True enough, victory is sweeter when you least expect it.
And then I saw big smiles and heard hearty laughs as we went out of the court. Those in blue, men and women, young and old, hugging each other, as they celebrated like they were the players that won the game, exchanged stories at how they were nervous and excited and how they screamed their hearts out. And how they were still feeling surreal right at that moment.
That scenario was a delight to the eyes and music to the ears.
I am a proud fan, just like thousands of those rooting for the blue and white, who were once again convinced that we were never wrong in choosing who to support.
The Lady Eagles are brave fighters who never give up.
They are the warriors that struggled, worked hard, and succeeded.
It is the team that most people doubted, hated, mocked, and was counted out.
And yes, it is the team that remains unassuming, focused, and hardworking:
It is the young Ateneo Women’s Volleyball Team, right there at the Finals.
Finals, baby. Finals.
I remembered I kept praying to God that He may let the team with the biggest and most deserving hearts win the bid to the finals.
Thank You, Lord.
You never fail.
The Lady Eagles, indeed, have the biggest and strongest of hearts.

Okay I’ll post something more detailed later but the pinnacle of my RTX- literally running into Ryan, managing to find him again later to apologize (he didn’t even remember, but told me not to worry about it and he probably bowled some people over himself today and apologized to me) and then got to talk to him with my friends I made until they started to close the floor. We asked for a goodbye hug and yes-
RYAN HAYWOOD CONFIRMED FOR BEST HUGGER LIKE SERIOUSLY
also when he pulled away he sorta reached for my hair and was just like “By the way, I love you hair!” And all I could do not to start crying was chirp out a “Thank you so much!” before running out after my friend while we said to each other “it was nice to meet you!”
