My favorite story to come out of the internet lately: For those of you who don’t know, for April Fool’s Day, Reddit launched this massive collaborative art project where you can place one pixel every five minutes on this massive canvas, so in order to do anything meaningful you have to work together collectively to make pixel art.
/r/YumeNikki decided to put the sprite of Madotsuki onto the canvas. Because of a lack of space, they decided to put it on the yellow stripe of the Swedish flag.
/r/Sweden, despite having no idea who Madotsuki is, absolutely fell in love with her, and have taken it upon themselves to fiercely defend her from any vandals. They even drew Pippi Longstocking next to her holding her hand. They’ve also made several visits to Yume Nikki’s sub and left friendly posts.
So that’s how a small community for a relatively unknown Japanese video game became best friends with the entire country of Sweden.
More Inuyasha confessions time: So I’m not sure at what point did Miroku and Sango fall in love? So like maybe you guys know and can tell me? But I was never quite sure what exactly drew them to each other/what they find attractive about each other (besides Miroku’s obvious physical attraction to Sango). Like it’s easy for me to see why Kagome likes Inuyasha and vice versa, or why even Koga likes Kagome/when he shifted from seeing her as something useful to an actual attractive person he was serious about. But Sango and Miroku always suffered from that… side character romance syndrome. you know… llke Ron/Hermione where they get together… cuz. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, it just makes me struggle to connect these types of romances (ironic since I seem to be super good at pulling out dinky non canon ships from out of nowhere haha my sesskag shipping ass.) They’re cute together, and I’ve never opposed them being together or thought of breaking them apart? They’re just… yeah ok to me? They go through the usual motions of showing that they care for one another, like getting jealous, protecting one another, etc. the usual cliche stuff but what is THAT SPARK???? Tumblr give me your wisdom! Let me know! Genuinely curious.
there came a time in the yume nikki and fangames discord server, where one doodle of usotsuki and nire about to fight escalated into a series of sequential catastropes. i’m afraid to say even i have no good way of putting sense and reason to this. it just, happened. its one of those things that just, happens naturally.
