It sounds dumb but Hydrus from Shadow of the Colossus terrified me. After I first came across them in game I stopped playing for over a year, and after I beat them, Dirge stopped me playing for several months. These two creatures genuinely scared me to the point of panicking and sweating and genuinely dreading every second with them. I was too scared to step one of Wander’s feet into the lake in which Hydrus resides, but this month. This month, I destroyed them in Time Attack. I beat Dirge in 3:20:69 out of 6:00:00 and Hydrus in 5:36:97 out of 12:00:00. I’m genuinely so proud. It sounds so stupid that these two guys terrified me this much, but I feel I’ve finally conquered them. I beat my “colossal” fear through just keeping on going. It may have been my first year at Uni but honestly, this felt the bigger accomplishment. Keep at it dudes, you will triumph.
i just got back from justice league!!!! before the movie even started i had such a good experience bc i bought the tickets online but i wanted the physical ticket bc i keep all my movie tickets and the guy at guest services was like “oh is it for a collection?” and i said yeah! and he was like “well let me help with your collection then” and gave me one of the free comics that you’re only supposed to get with imax tickets… and it was such a simple gesture but it made me so happy!!!
and i really loved the movie… it was easy to see where joss was involved and i obviously wish he wasn’t but zack’s vision and direction was so strong that it couldn’t not shine through and it made my heart soar to see the justice league really come together and be such a family to each other. it was really satisfying to watch the whole way through. if you love the characters, you’ll feel that love seeing them interact for two hours. it felt like a comic book and it felt like love went into it.
running a studyblr as an adult is so strange. i see kids as young as 13 having breakdowns about grades, isolating themselves from everyone because they don’t quite fit in, not knowing how to deal with very real mental health problems… it’s not my place as someone significantly older than you to try and intervene in your personal life, but i hope you all know that if you ever want advice - about studying, dealing with life, or just which colour to change your blog to - or need someone to listen to you when you’ve had an awful day, my inbox is always open. things will get better for you, and you will be okay, i promise.
Just a quick PSA, if I catch any of y’all threatening to hurt Jeremy in any way, shape or form (joking or not) for not validating your ship, you’re gonna catch these hands, legs, and then some more hands so shut up
What she means: Hyun Ryu, aka Zen, deserves so much better? A lot of people talk about how good looking he is or that he’s a narcissist, but they forget that it’s a crucial point in his route is how self conscious he really is? And don’t even get me started on how people ignore that his mother emotionally abused him during his childhood. Who the hell calls their child ugly? To protect them? Instead of just teaching them that people might take advantage of them because of how they look so they should keep their guard up? Suuure. I, for one, am proud that he still manages to be so confident after all that. And he’s still going after his dreams despite the fact that he was told he wasn’t going to make it anywhere. He joined a gang and got out of it to make his life better. And he’s doing it on his own, too, wow. People also give him crap for hating on Jumin, which is understandable, but making up with Jumin is also a crucial part of his route. He lets go of projecting his the image of his brother on Jumin and they actually become friends who just have banter? There is no reason to hate this boy? He’s such a sweetheart that gives really useful advice when it comes to handling life and tough situations. He’s very comforting and willing to go above and beyond for the people close to him.
He’s willing to drop everything to run over to MC or take in Yoosung. He cares about Jaehee’s health and really just wants her to take a break? He a Mom Friend and a big brother but he’s also such a cute dork? Especially when it comes to things like technology and romantic gestures? The boy even wants to let MC meet his parents before they get married and they won’t let him in the door? And the fandom portrays him as this salty, kind of violent, self-absorbed, character? And don’t even get me started on The Beast™ because? He doesn’t even bring it up that often? And when he does bring it up, it’s after he meets MC in person and even then, it’s only briefly before he changes the subject. Cause this boy would literally wait as long as MC wants him to. I could literally go on, but the main point is that Zen deserves so much better and I will love him enough for the whole fandom if I have to.
