RSD-Centric Horror Game Idea
So a lot of the horror genre is centered around mh issues (most naturally paranoia, trauma, anxiety, guilt, also sometimes addiction, depression, anger), and these things seem especially common in cat-and-mouse horror games.
I think a horror game where the monster is an embodiement of RSD would be great. Maybe you repeatedly get chased or assaulted by this monster that no one else seems to notice, or maybe they notice but don’t seem to care about helping you, and maybe one or two people do notice only to get dragged off by it themselves. Maybe you don’t find out until during or after the final showdown that people were working behind the scenes to help you the whole time, but every time it would have been obvious, you got attacked and distracted by the monster.
RSD is horror tbh and storywriters should take notice
One last thought since I am having some insomnia anyway:
Multiple people over the last week or so have told me in various ways that sometimes when friends are going through something there’s nothing you can do even if you want to help, it’s just something they have to go through.
It took a few people with a few different phrasings before that really sunk in, but it’s solid advice.
If there’s nothing I can do to help, just know that I’m rooting for you, and I’m here when you make it out!
Got a TWSBI Go with a bold nib a couple days ago.
Inked this up with Diamine Amber. I like the look much better in person than in pictures, and it feels less cheap / better quality than I thought it might for the $18.99 price (it certainly feels more solid than a Lamy Safari). The filling mechanism is really quick, easy, and neat. I think bold nibs are too large for my handwriting though, so I might order another Go in Fine sometime.
Just a PSA, if we’re friends and you’re having a tough mh day or feeling down and need company or advice or someone to dump on for whatever reason, tell me. You are so much more than entertainment to me. Sometimes friends need eachother and that’s a two way street.
If I don’t have the time or the spoons I promise I’ll let you know and I’ll be gentle about it.
Long psot, Affection, Semiversary, pandemic (and fragile MH during it), SFW affectionate furry gift art from a friend for our wedding
Today is my semiversary (6 months) being married to .
When I was a little girl, I had always imagined my wedding, but never my husband. I wanted to get married at the zoo I work at surrounded by the people and animals that I love and make my life enriching and rewarding.
We got married during the most frightening year many young people had ever had to go through, and I had many moments where I wondered if I was going to make it and be okay. was the one who ultimately helped me decide that I could every time I had these thoughts. It was him I though of absolutely every time I wondered if I could do this.
I didn't get the wedding I had always seen myself having, but I got something so so so so very much better. I got a husband who loves me more completely, deeply and fully than I could have ever imagined. I got a beautiful little wedding with my closest family and friends and the one who can make my heart beat wildly with a glance and a smile. I got a guaranteed lifetime of shared love, shared struggles and shared joy.
Life is strange and scary and nothing at all what I ever would have expected, but I have seen so far that as long as I have we can and will not only get through it together, but we will come out stronger, smarter and more deeply in love than we have ever been before.
I'm so grateful to be married to this wonderful person, and I'm looking forward to many long, happy, sad, scary, strange, silly, joyful and beautiful years together with him.
I love you with every fiber of my frazzled being, @Metaph, and I am fully committed to being the best wife, lover and friend I can possibly be for you.
Your Poleybirb loves you so much!
Gender Reveal is a pretty great podcast about trans and non-binary folks full of interviews with notable trans guests and I could link it to you on Apple Podcasts but you can find it on your own wherever you get your podcasts, so instead I’m linking you to their Patreon, go love them!
ideas about how "nothing people *do* can change their gender" is one that trans people have always been at the forefront of developing. it's just that for trans people, we derive that gender is thus all about personal experiences and expression. cis people, conversly, ~say~ that this means no one can Just Be A Gender By Choosing A Gender/Changing Your Behavior, yet continue to heavily gender behaviors
