Personal Information

  1. I'm literally fucking depressed right now...

    Every time I go and read the news I come away feeling like shit. "He did what?" "They're killing what?" I don't know what to do. It's irresponsible for me to just ignore what is going on. I'm not a child. I should be informed. But reading this shit and knowing how corrupt and awful the people in power are just makes me feel like shit, like I need to fuck off and sleep for a few years. Alcohol is a good middleman.
  2. Huh.

    Glad you're okay, which is maybe a strange thing to say, but any time I hear a story about a guy driving like that, I assume a gun is going to be involved. Dunno what I'd do in that situation :\
  3. Things That You Don't Understand!

    God that would be amazing.
  4. Things That You Don't Understand!

    How people are so fine to praise mediocrity. I read a lot of comics. I write reviews for them. Most comics are bad or just okay. Everyone loses their shit because Batman is Batman apparently, even though there hasn't been a good Batman book in like a year. New Wolfenstein game is fine. The gunplay is kind of boring, but it's at least competent. It's fine. Everyone loses their shit because HOLY FUCK I KILL NAZIS IT IS FUN BEST GAME! Not everyone is either A+ or F-. Things can be in the goddamn middle. Most things are. It's why it's average.

  6. Creating a ballanced character

    Fucking Bella Swan. Meanwhile everyone she meets goes out of their way to be her best friend forever.
  7. Exceptions to Your Musical Interests

    Typically more a metal dude, but I loves me some Taylor Swift and the new Kesha album is rock fuckin' solid.
  8. Creating a ballanced character

    I think you're on the right track. The easiest way to avoid a gary/mary stu is to write a character who is defined by his/her flaws first. It can be hard though. I'm shopping around this pirate story inside my head and it seems like every time I start in on the main character, she becomes too badass or too author inserty. One of the bigger gary stus I can think of is Richard Rahl from A Wizard's First Rule. He's this big, bold, badass with a big sword and libertarian viewpoints that everyone will get to listen to or else, and the thing is, he's a huge fucking douchebag/cunt. But no one looks at him that way. So really, the guy has a big character flaw, but the book goes out of its way to ignore that. Part of it all comes down to context and how you treat the character/how other characters treat the character. You can have a pretty powerful character with a minor flaw, but if all of that character's obstacles involve that flaw, it's still interesting, or can be. Like, there's this Top Cow book called Romulus and the main character is named Ashlar. She's kind of a mary su but she gets her ass beat often enough. It's just that it never seems to really bother her, or if it does, ti's so she can be the perfect YA version of angst. It's frustrating because it doesn't feel real, just stupid. When she needs to win a fight though, the book will give her the W pretty easily. It's like she never has to work for anything despite losing just as much as she wins. Very strange. Not interesting, even though it should be.
  9. This mentality explains why every few months I have to buy a new Predator or Alien figure. I didn't get carded at a bar the other day, so I should probably grab me a Hudson or Ripley or something to compensate.
  10. Why I'm misanthropic and why I hate hunters.

    OP needs a good joint and some black metal.

    Seriously man, I sometimes think about seeing a therapist for a session or two, and compared to half the people on this forum, I'm well adjusted! Don't make it seem like a big deal. Your mental health is just as important as your physical. I know it's cliche, but if you break an arm you go to a doctor; if you feel like shit and don't know why, you see a therapist or some variation of.
  12. The weird ass dreams thread

    Had multiple dreams the other night that I was a woman. Most took place in bars and men were being creepy, so that sucks. Woke up feelin' pretty confused. In one of them i could magically change my hair color though, which was pretty rad. I'd take that as a super power.

    If what you're saying is true and you actually aren't Shadow the Hedgehog in disguise, then you really should seek out a counselor or therapist. We can't help you here, and given your demeanor, you aren't giving us much of a reason to. Because let's be real: None of us give enough of a shit about you to want you to be miserable. I will however, wish you well and hope that you can find the help you need.
  14. This is the terrifying thing about social media. I don't really have anything to say other than I hope this doesn't affect your life in any meaningful way other than lulz on the internet.
  15. I still keep up with it, though season 7 has been very weak with some outright terrible episodes. The comics still vary from "that was fun" to "that was awful" At this point I don't know why. I'm probably going to drop it all after season seven is over. Seven years is enough. I do want to see the movie, but I don't want to walk into a kids movie, so it'll have to wait until Redbox or Netflix.
