Hi! I’m Kisaragi Momo and today I’m adopting these kids!
my mom, always: look through your stuff to see if there is anything you can give away!
me, with like three pair shoes: i guess i use this the less?
my mom: great! anything you dont use or dont use often would be great!
me, staring into nothing while also looking at her closet with so much stuff that some of them still have the tag on:.. i will look again…
A rhythm game based on cutting blocks and dodging obstacles to the beat of music, Beat Saber is a big, real world game - As well as being one of Mako’s favorites. But as such, its eventually adapted to the world of Link VRAINS, as well, albeit with a few… Changes.
Within the network, the game’s playing area is wider; while the player is still confined to a platform just large enough to provide free range of movement, blocks, walls, and mines can come from multiple directions within a 180 degree view. With the wider range and little clue as to where the next block or obstacle would come from, players quickly learn to incorporate dancing into their playstyle, keeping them on their toes and able to hit the next block while simultaneously avoiding being hit by anything else thrown their way. This makes the game more physical and offers a bit of exercise, more than the regular game usually allows.
Though the game is still very much virtual, the same obstacles of walls and mines remain. Walls are simple and their length and width is determined by the settings of the song being played, with a solid-colored outline and a slightly translucent design everywhere else. While they’re meant to be dodged, colliding with one in this version of the game provides the player with an instant loss, as well as a jolt akin to walking into a wall in real life.
On the other hand, mines provide damage to a VRAINS-only player ‘health bar’. The bar allows players to take a certain number of hits from mines and missed blocks before slapping a large ‘failed’ stamp on their round, and on the easiest difficulty setting, mines deal 2 points of damage per hit, up to five on the highest. Like walls, they provide a jolt when collided with, much like being hit with a slightly prickly baseball wherever the mine touched. Mines can be dodged or ducked under like walls, but also now jumped over.
Players still cut blocks with light swords, though the game can be customized to wield a connected dual sword instead for a greater challenge. Likewise, the game’s settings can be fiddled with to make it either easier or harder within reason, from adjusting the health bar to be a bit higher or lower, the number of mines, blocks, and walls, speed of the song - and the game in general, and how much damage can be done on collision. This allows for better players to find a challenge, while less skilled can still play without failing their run too quickly.
Just like in real life, Mako - as Alanna - tends to spend a fair bit of her time within Link VRAINS’ Central Station when she’s logged in alone, playing both alone and against anyone willing to go a few rounds against her. The game, to her, is much like cooking; a way to clear her mind and focus on something not her life offline or her troubles, and further helps to keep her anxieties and autophobia at bay. Still, she tends to avoid any tournaments that happen to start up, both online and off, fully believing her skills to be nowhere near good enough to play in them.
So, I’m not going to post the pictures, because I’m pretty sure tumblr’s wack system will try to take it down. But Anastasia recently posted a few pictures of herself and someone dressed as her version of Boris.
And one of the images is her in handcuffs, holding condoms, with the person dressed as Boris sort of holding her down.
There are a lot of issues with this, clearly the most obvious being a sixteen-year-old girl posting a picture of herself in a compromising position, in fucking handcuffs and holding condoms. This is a recurring issue, and I think it can classify as her posting borderline child pornography of herself. I don’t know if images like that are legal in Russia, but considering making pornography over there is illegal, images like that could (and should) get her in trouble.
There’s also an issue that I think a lot of her fans aren’t even realizing. She has an extremely unhealthy obsession with her versions of Bendy and Boris. She pays to get her own merchandise of them (which is also illegal), spends what seems like all her time making edits and suggestive content with them, and of course having someone (I assume her friend?) dress as Boris and take suggestive pictures with her.
It’s one thing to just really love a character. It’s another to go out of your way to do illegal things for them. And I can’t help but feel that the people who are allowing/encouraging her to get her own merch and do Boris cosplay with her are enabling her, feeding into her delusion that….I guess that Boris is her brother…that she also has sex with?????? Ok.
Considering how viciously she attacks people who also love those models/characters, or claims that she made the models herself, it really seems like she’s becoming unable to distinguish her fantasies from reality. She seriously needs to be taken away from those models, maybe MMD itself, because what she’s doing is anything but healthy. The way that she builds up an entire persona for these characters, making them their own VK and Instagram and YouTube, I honestly think she’s trying to feed her delusion that Bendy and Boris are real.
Now, a reminder, because some people want to see this issue as just completely black or white. I believe Anastasia is suffering from some kind of disorder, or is building delusions because of depression or something. I’m not a psychiatrist, this is just what I think her actions are saying. I think she needs help. Does that mean that what she does is okay? No, not at all. It means that she needs to stop, for the sake of others AND herself. She has an extremely unhealthy attachment to these characters, she’s trying to build her own fantasy world and make other people feed into it with fanart and cosplay, and shutting down other people who she feels are threatening her fantasy. That is escapism in the extreme, and it is VERY bad for you, especially the way that she does it. This is not a good thing for her friends or fans to be supporting. At this point they’re just making everything worse for her.
I continue to make these posts, with honest concern for Anastasia and the people she’s hurt, because I hope that they will reach someone. If you see this and want others to see it, feel free to reblog/repost and get the message around. I really, seriously want people to stop supporting her, because not only does she cyberbully and do illegal things, but she’s also getting dangerously deep into her own delusions. If you won’t do it for her victims, please do it for her.
margrethe’s storyline in s5 tends to reflect badly on everyone around her and that mostly due to the fact that hirst seems to believe that margrethe is a bad person and no one around her needs to feel bad for what they do to her because of that.
and it reflects bad on a lot of characters: ubbe, lagertha and torvi.
but in the case of torvi, i just get the feeling that hirst doesn’t really care about her character apart from being the Good Women. what you have written actually twists and makes her character more interesting. you can become what hurt you to other people. wouldn’t it have been interesting to explore that?
it sometimes feels like hirst thinks goodness is a virtue you inherit and not something you actively do. that’s why ubbe is all of ragnar’s good traits (whatever that’s supposed to mean), while ivar is all his bad traits (again: whatever that’s supposed to mean). he doesn’t want to explore the moral dilemma of torvi’s situation. she’s good by default, no discussion. also who cares actually what torvi’s going through or the neglect she suffered because of björn? (it’s not like björn gets punished because of it or that it creates a rift in the relationship between torvi and him.)
sorry, you were just ranting about torvi and i agree partially. she is not one of my favorite characters, but whenever i think about it, i just see this strange dicotomy of good woman/bad woman that the show has going on and how much it has stifled my enthusiasm for certain characters.
“Shit…I forgot Mom’s birthday…”
“Ah, it’s fine. I can be ‘too busy to celebrate’, too.”
So i’ve finally put my thumb on it
The reason I love Widojest so much is because they remind me of these fuckers and it’s an AU that I need.

Puts own goals on hold to help his new traveling companion (who he once was using for his own gains) discover what she wants out of life and comes to accept that his life has more worth than what he had previously thought
vlad, my baby boy, at some really nice all boys school in london. just actually being a kid. being away from vampires, from every bad influence in his life. actually living and being himself for once and never once being judged or ridiculed or bullied for it. and actually having friends again because he’s? he isn’t being bullied bc he’s the owners son or a loner. its just a blank slate. he’s a kid.
