Good evening, Anonymous! How are you doing tonight? Is anything on your mind?
Come hang out in my shrine, and get a Fairy Fortune for your troubles! Oops, I mean doubles. Dubs, please!
You wanna set that up? Cuz I just happened to talk about that with a couple of our friends recently!
N-not me, that's poison
Look what I found.... Hey Reimu
Well why are you sitting at home, then?
Whew... I guess I was a little distracted by another thread!
Can the miko even afford a table?
Oh w-we haven't watched that yet! We'll d-do so soon <4
Don't cry! Here you go!
Your fairy is...
The Lady of the Lake is the mistress of deep secrets and fairy magic. She reveals that there is a hidden power at work in your life, protecting and guiding you, equipping you with the tools to succeed.
Next person to ask gets a fortune! I'm feeling generous!
mmmmmmaybe I buy it for you
meanie! you need a fortune
No thank you!
Will things continue down hill?
What does the future hold for my friendships, Reimu?
Hah... And here you beat me to it~
I guess when Little Mermaid 3 comes out!
When the card of Yule appears, it heralds powerful currents of birth, rebirth, the recovery of vitality and health, illumination, enlightenment, revelation, and a change of consciousness.
Here comes a comeback!
Don't worry, I'll still give you one of course!
When Habetrot appears in your cards, she indicates the workings of fate and destiny. Habetrot spins you a change of fortune. You will make progress; there will be advancement, accomplishment, new opportunities, and perhaps a change of career.
Ooh, lucky us, huh?
... Wow. Those are ALL good things. Thank you, Reimu~ I'm happy to hear it. Then I just need to work hard.
What does what mean?
Mmhm! Hang in there, it'll get better!
You think I have everything? Life is a mixed bag, you know?
Hi there! Congratulations on breaking the sleep cycle!
I just make the best of what I've got!
I think I need help, usually around nighttime, if I'm alone, I'll have these depressed thoughts, usually just shit about how I don't deserve friends, or how I'm a waste of a human body...
I would usually come to threads like this looking for help, and some people got my Discord info, and started chatting to me, some people just say "If you need help, I'm here", and some people just say I have straight up depression...
I think I need help, but I don't want to message anybody, because I feel like a nuisance... what should I do?
Very long and stressful day at work and as soon as I come home my friend is relentlessly harassed. "Regular", I suppose.
Did you see my fortune, Alice?
Message people, of course. Doesn't matter if you feel like a nuisance. If you have depression, and I wouldn't exactly be shocked if you do, then it's only natural that you feel like a nuisance. So why let that stop you from pursuing help? Go see a doctor too, of course!
Good evening all. I hope everyone is well.
So how do these fortunes work, Reimu?
Throw out that self pity and start being a nuisance.
Nobody's time is more valuable than your own, and whether you can believe that or not, act based on it. Don't worry about whether you deserve what you have, you have it because you've gained it. If they're not getting anything from it, that's their failure not yours.
Wanna vc/msg? Not like a lecture or "you're depressed lol", just liike, talk
I have discord
Taking to your doctor and counseling is an option. Though your mileage may vary.
Wrong chick. I'm the Starbounder. They've added mech combat to the game and missions that work kinda like a game of Sinistar but with a portion where you get out of the ship at the end.
It's pretty rad. There's also space stations and a trade network, and you can build your own station too.
Reimu, I've been thinking about persuing a certain career choice. What does the future hold for me if I were to go with that career?
!!! that's a good thing to hear! What makes you feel that way? What's the good news?
>Tryamour - Reversed
When Tryamour appears reversed in your cards, she indicates external and internal pressures on a relationship. You may experience contradictory feelings, inner conflicts, and indecision.
Aww, too bad! Don't trust a reverse fairy though!
If you don't have health insurance, then I'd suggest consulting Alice. She's always willing to pay for people's doctor's visits, it seems like.
Look in your Player's Handbook.
if you are in the states you can look up your local city/county MHMR. They can provide you with low-cost referrals or even help make sure you can get treatment. Good luck.
Reimu predates the Bar, actually.
This is a little bit... uncommon or weird, but the good news is that my gf's stepfather is going to jail. Finally, because he ruined her life ( maybe unintentionally, but who cares) and 3 years of my life too. So this is rather good news and a big hope for us.
No this is a shrine! No drinking unless we host a party!
NO NO NO
I shouldn't borrow money from this guy, I'm already in debt, so I probably can't afford to pay them back...
Besides, maybe I don't need to visit the doctor, I can just shut up, it'll be all right
Don't forget, Anon, you're a wonderful person. I hope you have a good week this week.
It's... Like chinese to you?
I w-won't ask you to p-pay me back. Consider it a gift <4
I'm 9734 #3319 if you want to say hi !
Hey, that's definitely something to be happy about if he wasn't a particularly good person! Justice is good
This one does.
When the Fairy Hart appears in your cards, it challenges you to follow, wherever it may lead. Though this may sometimes be difficult and unpleasant, it will engender changes that prove beneficial in the end. You will develop and grow immeasurably if you meet the challenge with courage and determination.
No, it won't just be alright, anon...
I hope I didn't go too far by making such a suggestion.
I don't know about all that but you sure to laugh a lot. What's that about, anon?
Just what kind of trials is this mystery girl putting you through, anyway?
There is no such thing as try, Anon. You either do it, or you do not.
This time you might not, but always hold in your heart the belief that you will next time.
Assuming this is the same anon, now you're self-deprecating? What's going on?
ahahahahahah thats true, ive always been like that and its really cool, i constantly feel blessed to be me, but in the other hand i cant put it to good use cause im quite shy
i dont know, i just find everything funny i guess ahahah
Don't be sorry, damn it. And no, it won't. Ignoring your problems doesn't just make them go away.
Well, there wasn't a lot of text IN the last post to extrapolate such information from but... In any case, my apologies.
Umm... Would I be wildly off-base to guess that you might be... high at the moment, anonymous?
If you won't listen to the other bunny, Listen to me.
Deal with your problems as they come, don't just shove shit on the back burner. Trust me, I'm dealing with a rather gnarly ingrown nail because I ignored it for too long.
Medical issues don't just go away, you Should make every effort to take care of it.
The soul dies before the body, and usually not in a quick fashion.
Ah, thanks Velvet.
Asking for help isn't easy, I know, but you're a strong enough person to do it.
Well, add me on Discord at Fenn#4548
Then I'll message you first, and you won't feel like you're forcing yourself on anyone! I'm lonely and bored anyway.
If people say they're willing to listen to you, that means they won't be annoyed or upset when you talk to them. Don't be afraid, Anon. You're not that bad. Talking to a doctor or a therapist wouldn't hurt, either. All some people want to do is help, don't deny them that.
Sisters of a sort!
Velvet's completely right. Thank you, anon. Trying is all I can ask you to do.
Good, I'm proud of you.
When you get it taken care of, I'll give you some Carrot cake as a reward.
Ah, just go. Grab some ice cream or something, it won't be that bad. Procrastinating almost never ends well.
I'm fine. Have you been doing well?
yeah, pretty great actually! havent been bored recently
ahahahah i know, but i also know that i will still probably not go. i guess ill see, if i happen to wake up early in the morning, which i wont cause its 2:20am, ill go.
so what have you been up to?
That's good. If you keep putting it off, it'll never happen... You need your sleep too, buddy. Don't forget to get some rest. Everything's better after a good night's sleep.
I strongly recommend trying to conform to a more regular sleep schedule. It really helps, I promise.
I didn't do much today. Played some games, went for a walk, read a book. What did you do?
Night night, Anon! Sleep well!
really? im curious, in what aspect would it help? good for you, i love people who read! seems to be a bit rare nowadays ahahahah
well, went to play football with friends in the morning, and was on the pc the rest of the day, nothing else
ahahahahah im out of questions i think, sorry
Well, once you're waking up early and at the same time every day you've got a lot more daylight to work with. You'll feel more awake, and more ready for the day. It's a wonderful feeling to wake up early and full of energy.
Oh, I don't read much. Just a novel here and there. I really should read more though.
No worries. Do you play any games? Today I tried to bump up a few of my scores in Hotline Miami.
It works best if you do it every day, but I find that if I get one really good night's sleep it does wonders to get me going for one day.
Yeah, my computers are pretty old, so I can only play older games. I've tried, but I can't run much newer stuff. Not much of a problem, I really like older games anyway. Is Hearthstone a card game? I've heard of it, but I know next to nothing about it.
It's time to give yourself a fortune!
yeah, i like the oldschool style of them anyway so i get that you like them! i might even try one or two if you have any reccomendations, im pretty bored so ill be sure to play whatever ahahahahah. i also used to have just an old laptop so id usually not play games, when i did i just lower the quality to a minimum in every aspect and still get like 10fps
yeah, its like magic the gathering if youve heard of it, but kiddified ahahahahah. i honestly dont know why im still playing that game, i guess i just like collecting cards. basically, you play your creatures which can take life from your opponent, until you kill him, or play spells with certain effects like destroy all enemy creatures. and you gain gold from battling other players which you can use to get more creature/spell cards via packs (which are always fun to open). if you have a decent phone, you should give it a try, its on ios and android, f2p!
oh, have fun!
Ooh, that sounds like a lot of fun. I'll see if I try it out sometime. Is it available for Windows? I haven't played Magic, but I do like collecting cards and monsters and such.
Recommendations? Ragnarok, Doom, Geneforge 5, Avadon, Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead.
Those are some of my favorites. Haven't played Avadom or Ragnarok in a long time though. Look them all up if you want, there's a bit of a range there. If you're interested I can describe a couple of them.
trips, well now i gotta play something ahahahahah
windows? yeah, it will probably run on your computer (i hope) but just make sure to lower the graphics, i ran it on my old pc pretty fine
OH WAIT WINDOWS PHONE? that im not sure ahahahahah, but i dont think so, sorry
yeah, i love collecting! thats the 2 best parts about the game for me, collecting (and they have golden cards with animations, im f2p so i should sell them but i like them so much i just keep em always ahahahahahah) and the fact that its super casual, its so cool to play with friends where you just build whacky decks with cards with randomness, its just so fun! oh also, they have some solo adventures, thats the 3rd best thing for me
well, now that ive explained why i like it so much, i guess its your turn ahahahahah, yeah just pick like a couple, ragnarok and another one, ragnarok has a cool name so i know ill like it
What does a sweet rosebud have to do to get some attention in such a crowded place? I'll be the one looking after you then.
fuck the people I hang out with. They lick everything up and every rumor they hear in the media. They never shut up about politics, act so smug about it and if I were to speak up to tell them to stop they will treat me with suspicion. When I even pipe in small things they go WRONG.
No, I don't have a windows phone. If you like the cards, there's nothing wrong with holding on to them. Being able to play with friends sounds like fun.
Ragnarok is very old. It's a Norse mythology-themed roguelike, where you play as an adventurer who must retrieve the weapons of the gods and bring them back before Ragnarok, the battle at the end of the world. Here are some useful links:
It's difficult to get into, but if you can find the Red Bag and learn to swim or get Skidbladnir then you're pretty much set. If you find the right scrolls or have the ability to write them you can change yourself into a really powerful monster. It's a very challenging game, but I love it. I should play it again, it's been a long time... thanks for reminding me.
Have you tried looking for other people? If you can't change them and they're just horrible, leave them. Don't force yourself to spend time with them for their sake, it won't do any of you any good. Find someone who appreciates you.
Ohoho, it's nice to have a warm welcome. You're in good spirits today, it seems!
I'm just taking a short break from them. Just needed to vent. They are good as long as they don't talk about politics which unfortunately they do at least 5 minutes every time I'm around. Then my blood starts to boil. I used to deal with it as "ya, let them have their fun" then it just got more irritating and they never stop and think.
Plus you know how it is with political debates or even having an opinion now a days, just shit flinging and people getting angry. Plus that bad blood will stain for a long time if I try to engage.
well if you meant windows computer you can definitely run it
the images seem pretty cool, and the idea, ill give it a try right now! ahahahahahahahah i think you reminded yourself, so you should thank yourself instead ahahahah
Uhhh...Well, let's say that i'm trying to compensate for not having found a way to further develop the plot of my game...Hope you're finding it easier!
I've hit a roadblock myself with the final villain.. I need some time to think it over.
Were you going to use 2k3?
I know all too well how bad political shitslinging can get. I started to pull back, and I don't even care anymore. The whole world can go to hell. Putting up with other people throwing fits about it is such a pain though. I wish there was something more encouraging I could say.
If you're looking for something more, uh, user-friendly try Geneforge (http://www.spiderwebsoftware.com/geneforge5/index.html) or Avadon (http://www.spiderwebsoftware.com/avadon/index.html).
They're a little pricey, but the demos are free and expansive. Give them a shot.
Don't worry, I know the whole ring about. Just that it hits close to home when people you personally know do it instead of random people on the internet. Even worse is how they only talk about American politics like the know it all's yet ignore local Canadian politics unless it's praising their own country.
right, i fully intend to pay for them, absolutely! no piracy whatsoever ahahahahahah
oh, just for the record, i dont really condone piracy, and i actually intend to start buying my games when i finish college and get a job. for now though, i can really only afford maybe one or two a year. i was already playing the other one but that seems nicer ahahahahahah, ill give the geneforge one a try. thanks for all the links and stuff, i appreciate your help!
Final villain?! You're already there?...B-but how? I still have to complete the plot! I probably will, i just wonder if it would be possible to give the game a different look from the ones most rpg games i played have. There is this one called Lone Survivor that has a whole different graphic so i'd like to see if that would be achievable with the program we'll be using.
I might end up doing a custom engine for my own game.
Ah, I meant I was planning out the plot, that's all.
Huh. These friends, they don't seem to be on the, uh, intelligent side. Still, if you can get along with them on things other than politics that's good. Have you suggested to them that they not throw fits about foreign politics in front of you?
That's fine, I don't hold it against you. The free demos are pretty good. Hotline Miami's easy to pirate, and it's ridiculously easy to get the complete version of Doom for free.
Hope is a wonderful thing to have, Anon. You hang on to it, and never let it go. Things can get better.
No fair! You're super experienced compared to me.
So be it, i just hope i'll be able of making something up to your standards.
you want to create a game engine? thats pretty cool!
im actually just installing the demo for whateverforge, because i dont wanna break the law and get tortured by the FBI ahahahahahah
I tried to change the topic but next time I'm going to be blunt about it as it is honestly starting to affect my view of them in negative light. I sort of feel bad seeing them get sucked into it like that and disappointed that they just talk about American politics. The one thing that gets me mad though is the fact one of them thinks political violence is an ok thing... I don't think he realizes the full consequences of that happening.
Alright. I hope you like it, let me know what you think next time you see me. Take care, Pennyman. And remember to get some sleep.
If you don't like it and are disappointed, don't be afraid to tell them. If you can't be honest with your friends about these things, they're not very good friends.
Oh boy, political violence. I'd do some political violence to him if I could get to him. What an idiot.
Sometimes I try. Don't worry about it, Anon. You weren't too passive. Good luck to yourself, I hope you can make things better.
