[I don’t want your awareness
I need your acceptance]
Feeling a little melancholy at the moment, and I can’t help thinking: Why can’t it just be okay that I’m me?
i wonder if magic is real, but only in a really mundane way.
when i was little i could almost inerringly switch back to disney channel right as the ads ended when i was channel surfing.
maybe youve never accidentally crushed a ladybug underfoot. maybe your microwave popcorn never burns. maybe you can spin around lots and lots of times before you get dizzy.
is that magic??
honestly im not sure if these are magic or just small, invisible skills. im not sure which i like better.
To start this off I just want to say. I’m the kind of person who plays GTA and generally enjoys it. As violent as those games are, most of the mayhem you can cause is optional, does not take up the main focus of the game and hardly ever takes itself seriously. There are never any missions that say “Go kill a group of innocent people just because”. And most of the reactions to people who do dumb stuff on the streets is hardly trauma inducing.
Now comes Hatred. In this day and age where we’ve had to go through several horrible mass shootings, a developer thought it would be a good idea to make a game that glorifies mass shooting. The main protagonist is a self proclaimed humanity hater who wants the world to burn. And the game’s focuses you going on the streets, puling innocent civilians down and either gunning them or stabbing them to death. This is not done in the crude, comedic style of GTA or any other such game. This game is serious. The tone is disturbing and the reactions from the in game NPC’s is unsettling.
See the trailer here. I warn you though, it’s exceedingly violent and dark. Do not buy this game. Make sure it flops. If this game gets even a moderate amount of love, news outlets are going to take this as a sign that ‘Gamers as a whole condone mass murder hububububu’. And who knows what other backlash can come of this. Do not think I’m overreacting. In 24 years I can honestly say, this is the most unsettling game I’ve ever seen. It’s not horror. It’s just pure, disturbing violence that makes even games like manhunt seem family friendly.
The makers of this game are literal neo-Nazis. Just FYI.
Ally tip: learn to recognize the difference between a censored queer romance (i.e. Marceline and Princess Bubblegum from Adventure Time) and queerbaiting (i.e. BBC Sherlock and Supernatural)

Hey! So this all started as a simple random color script for Paint Tool Sai but now it’s starting to grow into something bigger!
This is SaiPal. It is a tool I wrote after reverse engineering Paint Tool Sai for so long and reads/writes directly to its memory to do a lot of cool features!
