The most annoying thing about KHIII is just how overly cringefic the story's gotten by this point.
Everyone remotely interested in the story of Kingdom Hearts, go read "A Sorrow of Magpies." I swear to fuckin' God it will make more sense than any goddamn thing the series has put out since II originally was released-- it IS my headcanon, and has been ever since Dream Drop Distance, with its 'oh hey look at all these mes that i resurrected or time-traveled to be here with me uwu' came out.
Today is the 1st anniversary of My Cat's passing, I believe.
and right now my cat is in front of my desk chasing his own tail.
...Jesus Christ do I miss that cat.
Even if she did literally all of her business on my floor a majority of the time, and was really terrible about cleaning herself (i.e. practically not at all), she was really good to me. It's like a crazy cat lady with a heart of gold.
Fun fact: the soft, compressed percussion-only sections heard at the beginning of Sonic CD's Present tracks were actually put in place to fill a gap, so that the actual music could have time to load, and ran off the physical hardware, I believe, same as the Past stage themes. On the next pass, once the percussion pattern reached its end, it would transition seamlessly into the main track. Neat, huh?
Those of you who laughed AT, that laughed WITH, those who spit my name the way the Emperor does that of Luke's "precious rebellion," and those to whom I am just kinda *there*, thank you for enduring all this suffering. I've started this thread https://warioforums.com/threads/the-tahutoa-thread.3385/ to continue my terrarrrr somewhere less disruptive. because like omg so sick of carrying. But feel free to drop by! Or make posts on this page, which I'll continue to respond to, possibly to Magma's dismay.
...It's honestly so foreign to me, being in a place where someone is there to even feel animosity towards me-- an experience I haven't had since grade school, and I must thank you all for placing me in your memory banks. Outside of my immediate family I only have a couple friends and even those are just acquaintances, so it's cool to have someone to talk to. I'm honestly kind of annoyed that I AM a forum-dweller, for lack of a better term, since I was the sort of fag that made fun of D&D players when I was younger-- blissfully unaware that my comparatively more worldly best friend and I were relatively outcasted-- possibly because of our interests. but then there was also John-- *anyway.*
...sheeit nigga, it's just *nice to be somewhere that I feel like I belong,* at least to some extent, as cliche as that sounds. I proudly wave the waabulous wario forums flag, and internally, probably wear my usership like a badge of honor, because I'm gay; being an introvert, I rather like flying solo, but at the end of the day humans are social creatures, and having some punk make fun of me in a way that could only happen if I've made *some* sort of impression is a lot better than getting the occasional 'this person liked' on SC or 'this person reblogged' on Tumblr. The fact that I still remember this one girl saying "okay but this totally slaps?" kind of reinforces my relatively lonely experience.
Ironically, given my introverted status, I am a goddamn attention whore. Granted, I'm not so desperate as to purposefully throw myself down two flights, but I like it when people like me, and get disheartened when people don't, nigga. I ALREADY KNOW I DON'T MATTER? But HELL IF I GIVE A FUCK. There's music to make and people to make listen to it!
There's not really a way to end this particular tome that I'd feel satisfied with, but then, *this isn't the end.*
One thing that Mystery Incorporated did that I really like was that every time there was a really suave villain/monster/what-have-you that swept girls off their feet, it always turned out that they were secretly nerds. The Dandy Highwayman was a book nerd who read poetry & the Wild Ones consisted of the dev team behind a next-gen console. I only realized this just now, and that it was so subtle like that is pretty cool.
Oh, and another thing, as an opposite to that, the ones who act suave & "neato" in their civilian forms end up being the bastard bad guys: Rung Ladderton, Baylor Hautner ("what's he doing with her hands?!" "He's holding them Fred. You know, that thing guys do with girls on dates"), those two football jerks who look like Doug if he had hair & Larry Bundy Jr. (though in their cases it was artificial-- the villain they shared was voiced by Mr. Krabs, though).
Trying a new pfp. I should think the reason for my choice would be obvious-- especially to a certain product of yon Caldera.
It feels really weird not seeing the more familiar, good ol' Ball O' String, but it's far too reminiscent of a time when I barely said anything, I think.
I remember reading a post on Quora or smth that says spergs like myself are *extremely* aversed to the slightest of sudden changes, and I didn't really think that applied to me, until realizing just now that the reason I'm so behind in my studies is because I CAN'T. Just fucking. LEAVE YOUR COMFORT ZONE, DAMMIT.
