wall sitting

On Friendship | Hagit Grossman

“On Friendship”
Hagit Grossman

If a friend calls out to you late at night from beneath your window
Never send him on his way. And if you’ve sent him away and still
Insist on rigid rules, regain your composure after a moment
And run to the window and shout his name: “Come, Merhav!
Come back! I’ve got some corn cooking! Come eat something.”
And he’ll placidly retrace his steps and gladly accept
The key you toss down from your window,
Will come upstairs to the first floor and will be impressed
By the large pictures on the walls.
He’ll sit and wait for you to slip into a clean shirt and you’ll put on
The movie in the kid’s room and your baby daughter
Will rush to the kitchen and come back with a red pepper for him.
He’ll decline the warm corn and say he’s already had dinner.
In the meantime your husband will chat with him about Tai Chi
And pour him a glass of cold sweet pineapple juice.
You’ll return to the living room
And go out to the balcony and light a cigarette and sip
A cold beer. You don’t yet realize
That this is a sublime moment in your life.
One of the most sublime you’ll ever know.

Translated from the Hebrew by Benjamin Balint

Just imagine the SMH team having a wall-sit competition. One by one all these big beefy hockey brahs drop out and collapse with quivering legs until it’s just Jack and Bitty left, staring each other down on either side of the hallway, while the rest of the team hollers. Then Jack smirks and says some stupid understated chirp and Bitty squawks and starts laughing but that’s it, he’s sliding to the floor giggling, and then everyone piles onto Jack, but all he can see is Bitty’s flushed, beaming face, and he never wants this to end.

Just think of Kylo visiting Reys old ‘home’, looking around. 

Taking the old, dried up flower into his hand and crumble it between his fingers.

Looking at her makeshift bed, at all that seemingly worthless junk but it was all Rey used to have. He picks up one of the mechanic parts and wonders why she might have kept that thing. obviously it wasn’t valuable because in that case she would’ve traded it in for food.

Then he looks at the wall with all the marks and he takes off his glove and softly brushes his finger over the rills, the feelings of hope, despair and loneliness flood him as if they were trapped in each one of those tally marks.

Every single one counting down another day, each night she would carve a mark into the wall, hoping that maybe tomorrow would be the last day of her wait but Kylo feels that deep down inside she knew they won’t come back. But what else did she have to cling on? 

During the day she was busy with surviving but at night, she was alone with her thoughts and her longing and he looks at the bed and knows she would lie awake every night for hours. and the nights were so dark here in the desert, Rey would sometimes put on a light just to make sure that the world around her hasn’t vanished.

Ren can’t bring himself to leave and he is just sitting there on Reys bed, soaking up her essence like a sponge. He knows he is Ben Solo then. 

Kylo Ren has no force-bond with Rey.


a few galaxies away but right at the same time, Rey stands in Bens old ‘room’, looking over shelves of holo-books, miniature droids and old, beige and brown clothing, plushy toys and a bunch of actual paper with childish doodles and drawings on them. Leia had kept everything. “He would draw much.” Leia explains “Maz Kanata had advised Ben to draw what he was dreaming about.”

Leia tells Rey that Ben had often painted dark figures and shadows, landscapes of planets he could have never been on before and something they assumed to be a prisoner in a cell. Back then, they at first thought it was just a childs imagination. Han had joked that Ben could see his future, ending up in jail for smuggling. But Leia had been deeply worried and asked Luke for help.

Rey touches each single toy, brushes her fingers over the various  wear marks, almost feeling as if she was touching Ben. 

Leia shows her a little yellow night light and tells Rey how she had to leave it on for Ben, for he had been afraid of the dark. 

She recalls a little story to almost every object in the room.

Rey notices how Ben must have had more toys and things than Rey could’ve ever dreamt of. What else could be expected for a prince? 

But those were all things that had belonged to a child… where was the rest?

“I have not seen Ben in 20 years.” Leia would silently admit and answer Reys question.

Back then , to her it had been understood that Ben would be trained to become a Jedi. But now Leia feels like an idiot, telling this young woman in front of her that she had sent her only child away.

Rey starts to realize that a family could also be broken and torn. That people like Leia Organa, Han Solo and Luke Skywalker could make mistakes.

They leave the room and the door closes behind them.

Rey should have taken a closer look at the drawings and doodles, though. Some showed the Falcon or Chewbacca and other family members. But others showed certain desert landscapes and something that looked like a scrawly version of Reys AT-AT. and someone in front of a wall full of tally marks. 


At night, Rey would sneak back into Bens old room.

It feels as if every object and even the walls are talking to her and she just sits there, listening for hours on end. Rey then just knows more than ever that Ben Solo is still very much alive. She can feel him through their weird connection.

Prompto breaks the fourth wall
  • Sitting around the camp fire, bellies full of delicious food and a beer in their hands. Ignis has already turned in, and Gladio is off scouting the area for items and such.
  • Prompto: Hey, Noct.
  • Noctis: yeah?
  • Noctis answers before taking a sip of his beer.
  • Prompto: If you could be in any video game, which would it be?
  • Noctis blinks and turns at the blonde.
  • Prompto smiled
  • Prompto: I mean, I would probably like to be in some kind of RPG. Ya know? Something with... lots of action. I'd totally be a range character. Like... an archer or something. Ooh! Like Varic from Dragon Age!
  • Noctis' eyes grew wide as he looked around, seeming confused.
  • Noctis: Uh.....
  • Prompto: Dude, and like, you could be the leader or something. Like.. ooh! I know! You would be like... no wait! Gladio would totally be the tank. I mean, he runs head first into fights and takes all the hits for us. Ignis would TOTALLY be a mage. Reviving us and giving us all kinds of cool buffs to help us kick ass.
  • Noctis: ......uh.... hm.
  • Prompto downs the last of his beer.
  • Prompto: Man that would be so cool. We could go on all kinds of adventures and dude, you know I'd totally level up like a BEAST. I mean, you would probably be stronger than me since you'd be like... a mix between a range character and a tank. ..... and a mage. Jack of all trades really....
  • Noctis: Prompto, go to bed. You're drunk.
  • Prompto: No way! I only had one beer. I'm not drunk.
  • Noctis: Go to bed anyway. You're... freaking me out.
  • Prompto tilted his head
  • Prompto: Huh?? How!?
  • Noctis looked around again
  • Noctis: Just... I mean... I feel like we... ARE... in a video game sometimes. Don't you?
  • Prompto laughed
  • Prompto: oh man. YOU'RE the one that's drunk. Video games aren't real. Just games, man.
  • Haha, This is real life, duuuuh.
  • Noctis looked at his beer with eyes the size of saucers.
  • Noctis: Ah.... uh......... hm.
  • Maybe I have had too much.
  • Prompto: Haha, lightweight.
NDRV3 Trailer Analysis 12.12.16

Okay, so I went through the latest trailer frame-by-frame. Some things in this post will be interesting, a couple important, and some cute and maybe new sprites I wanted to save. I’ll try to write a bit on all of them.

First off, we have this from near the very beginning of the trailer.

You can’t really draw much from this piece, but it’s a cool little piece of new art. Some of the characters look nothing like themselves to me. Like I lowkey thought Tenko was Ibuki at first……… All 16 of them are here. (Also, what the fuck is Rantarou doing? Wall sits?)

By the way, all 16 of them are also in this picture, you just gotta look closely:

Anyway…

Here’s a shot of Monokuma and Monofanii, doing the Monokuma Cubs licking thing, except without the licking. They all have a frame like this, but Monofanii is my favourite, so…

Lmk if you want one for another cub.

I really like how Monokuma seems to be more loving to these cubs. It’s nice to see a change of attitude after him being so mean to Monomi. I really expected him to be unkind to the cubs too for some reason, so I’m glad he’s not.

This one is here ‘cause Kaede is really, really cute. (I dunno if any of the sprites I found are actually new, I don’t keep up with the hunts. They just looked new to me.)

These are here for the same reason, I thought they were cute and potentially new.

This, too, is here for the sprite, but it’s for Tenko’s, not Ouma’s. She’s got a pretty attractive face going on there. 

I really really love Gonta!! so here’s a brief frame of these two sprites (I know Himiko’s is new, not sure about Gonta) that are both super cute and great.

I think the Himiko sprite here is new but not 100% on that

Here’s a nice frame of the Monokuma Cubs before the Scrum Debate thing. Here’s my two cents on the cubs: I really like that we have new Monokuma designs. Original ones! I wasn’t in the fandom when SDR2 was introduced, so I don’t know how much of Monomi was marketed. But I want to learn about these cubs a LOT more than I did Monomi.

Feeling a bit cheated that Monosuke has eyelashes, but isn’t a girl. I’m all for breakin’ gender roles, and stuff, but he actually sounds like a block of cheese. Ouma being my favourite, I was so down for that Monosuke in the Oumami theme. But…okay. He’s still my second favourite for sure.

Other than Monofanii (Monofunny, but have fun catching me saying that) and Monosuke, I’m not a big fan of the other three, but hopefully the game will change my minds about them. I want to love them all furiously.

A clearer picture of the Scrum Debate, so you can see the teams better. Looking good, Ryouma.

This is just a closer picture of Rantarou basically so I can talk about the sprite, but I love Gonta and he’s so cute. Anyway. Rantarou literally looks like an anteater or some shit in this sprite!! I love him but what the fuck! Literally what the hell is his hair smth about this sprite looks so off and I hope it dies

Tsumugi is very pretty and wonderful, and Ki-bo is short and beautiful.

Looking good, Saihara.

A clearer shot of Hotel Kumanami. The map in the corner is really cool, too, it’s sorta interesting how the Prison School is so big that we’d need a map. Everywhere in NDRV3 seems to be absolutely gorgeous (look at that sky!! the water!!) so I’m sure the interior of Kumanami will be no different.

Cool shot of a minigame (not sure what to call it, never seen the English localisation of the other games) Seems likesomeone else is in the car with Kaede. Take that as you will.

These next few I don’t have much to say about.

The school looks so preeettyyyy~

They all posted completely out of order, but you get the point, lol. I’m wondering if those pairings will mean anything? I kinda hope so.

And now, I leave you with..

This…?


All in all, NDRV3 looks really good and I’m so excited. I hope these helped you in any way.. with anything! Of course, let me know if you want meto screenshot anything else specific.

Under the cut: Ones that didn’t make the cut because I fucked up or they didn’t fit or I didn’t know what to write. in assorted order.
