hey guys hello I’m going to tell you about some cool free indie horror games that you should try out if you have the time. None of them have any stupid jump-scares in them, they’re more like psychological horror games, even though there are a few things here and there that might make you jump. :
Something is looking for you—you can tell by their flashlights and the low, undulating growl they emit when you get too close. You don’t know why, and you don’t know where you are—you just have to hide.
You are hunting a yeti, but you aren’t sure where the damned thing is. Follow bloodstains in the snow, climb trees and run shitless (or stand frozen in fear) when night falls. Will you actually catch the yeti? Give it a shot.
Advance through this innovative 3D platformer by listening to the way different sounds bounce off of walls (which is beautifully visualized with the stripes you see here). You are otherwise blind, and presumably in a coma. Wonderful sounds and atmosphere.
I’ve replayed this RPG Maker game several times and I think it is absolutely brilliant. You play as Madotsuki, a girl who lives alone in her apartment and refuses to leave. You go to sleep and explore her numerous—and wildly unsettling—dream worlds searching for strange items called Effects. This is an exploration game with little direction. You find your own meaning in the game.
what if the reason nobody can tell fred and george apart is because they really are interchangeable
not in a ~it doesn’t matter~ way but like. molly and arthur used to worry that fred and george might turn out to be squibs because they weren’t doing any accidental magic as children, but they were, THEY TOTALLY WERE, it just wasn’t anything flashy, instead they were just like idly switching bodies all the time
and like sometimes it doesn’t make much of a difference, whatever, wake up in the opposite bed you went to sleep in, but it gets like dangerous and weird if you’re on a broom or in the pond or letting your mum teach you to cook or trying to be mad stealth, so for a long long time everybody presumes they’re clumsy maybe-squibs and that they’re doing their twin lying thing when they try to explain what’s going on, so they learn to handle the issue their ownselves
they just. don’t go anywhere without the other. they start each day deciding which body is going to be which (because at this point they really don’t know which body is technically fred and which is technically george), and they learn to reorient FAST when they switch, and what things set them off, and eventually they learn how to act like nothing’s up even when one of them’s in the air and one’s on the ground or whatever, and then they burn past that til they can finish each other’s sentences — til they can switch midsentence — til they can play beater together — til they can switch in a split second in the middle of a game — til there’s room for other kinds of accidental magic to start showing up
at hogwarts they keep each other awake in history of magic by switching back and forth. in potions they take turns brewing and keeping lookout for the slytherins. in transfiguration and charms they keep their grades up because one of them will always get a spell right on the first try so they switch and make it look like both of them do and then they practice on their own later in private. it keeps the mystery alive.
at first they thought lee was just a lucky guesser but no, lee can always tell one twin from another twin — it’s not exactly telling fred from george, because while they are definitely two distinct personalities neither one of them feels like fred all the time or george all the time — but lee knows who he argued with yesterday or who he lent his notes to or who’s best to ask for help in astronomy and who’s best at runes.
the weasleys are pretty bad at it for the longest time, but then bill comes home from his first year cursebreaking and he can tell, and over a holiday he teaches his trick to charlie so charlie can tell. alicia and katie and angelina can tell. the twins honestly don’t know if oliver can tell or not; so long as they’re doing what they’re supposed to on the quidditch pitch he doesn’t really care about much else. harry can tell. luna can tell. tonks can tell.
the problem is there’s no way for this to end happily
whenever i see these post-apocalyptic films set in the USA where everyone is pretty much just killing each other with no mention of other nations i always just assume that the rest of the world is fine and has learnt how to resume life as normal
oH MY GOD SO MY COUSIN IS OVER AND SHE’S A RELIGIOUS FREAK AND IS AGAINST EVERYTHING INCLUDING GAY RELATIONSHIPS AND MARRIAGE AND I WAS IN MY roOOM AND I HEARD A SCREAM AND I RAN OUT OF MY ROOM AND SHE WAS HOLDING UP MY PHONE STARING RIGHT AT THIS
Oh my god this is disgusting. One should never allow their battery to be that low.
No no no no no this is unacceptable, seriously, I’m about to puke. Why do you only have one bar of service?
IM JEALOUS OF COUNTRIES THAT TEACH LANGUAGES TO CHILDREN FROM A YOUNG AGE SO BY THE TIME THEYRE LIKE 18 THEYRE BILINGUAL . IN MY ELEVEN YEARS OF AMERICAN PUBLIC SCHOOLING I CAN NAME YOU LIKE 5 COLORS IN SPANISH
i’m a 14 years old argentinian girl and i run a blog in english
literally everyone in America hates the American education system and has thousands of ideas for how to make it better but nothing ever fucking changes
Why can’t there be a male hooter’s equivalent where male servers are shirtless and highly sexualized for their bodies and looks
Male Strip clubs. You’re thinking of male strip clubs.
No. Not a male strip club. A strip club is a strip club. I want a place called Cahones where waiters wear Speedos and are forced to stuff if they don’t fill out their uniform well enough. I want them to giggle for my tips. I want it to be so normalised and engrained in our culture that women bring their daughters there for lunch (because whaaaaaat the wings are good! Geeze sensitive much?) where they’ll give playful little nudges like, “Wouldn’t mind if you dad had those. Heh heh heh.” that their daughters don’t even understand but will absorb and start to assume is just the normal way grown up women talk about grown up men. I want to playfully ask my waiter if I can have extra nuts on my salad and for him to swat my arm with an Oh, you because he knows if he doesn’t his manager will yell at him. I want other men to pretend to like going there so I think they’re cool. I want to go to Cahones during my lunch break at work and when I come back and tell the other women in the office where I went they chuckle slightly and the men around us suddenly feel self conscious and they don’t know why.
If I may ask, what are you religious views, if any?
I grew up Catholic.
Taught by nuns in elementary school.
I stood. I sat. I knelt. I sang songs out of tune. I knelt some more. I yawned.
Sister Cathy yelled at me for eating a crayon.
First communion. Jesus crackers. Jesus wine.
First confession. “I stole my brother’s Legos and then lied to my mom about stealing his Legos and then he punched me. I’m hoping he confesses to you about the punching thing cuz that really hurt.”
Don’t forget to kneel.
High school church youth group.
I read the bible. I was probably supposed to do this earlier.
The beginning bits seemed harsh. I liked Jesus quite a bit, but his stories never seemed to fit with the ones that surrounded them.
Did they put animals that can swim on the boat? I mean, could you just leave the ducks off the ark to save space? Maybe they could swim along side and you just toss them bread.
Why did he free Moses and make them wander around for so long? Haven’t they been through enough?
(To Father Steve) Technically a whale can’t ingest a human. Jonah would have got caught in its throat and they both would have died.
*angry priest face*
So are you saying that God made a bet with Satan to see how much shit Job would put up with? That doesn’t seem very ethical for a deity.
*angrier priest face*
Then I started learning about the politics of religion and more important questions arose.
What’s wrong with being gay? That passage is in the same book that says slavery is totally fine.
What’s wrong with contraception? People are dying of diseases that you could have prevented if your missionaries gave out condoms instead of bibles.
Why am I sick?…….. How is this someone’s plan for me?
My views became very “if any.”
That world made no sense to me. I started working things out on my own and solving my problems without asking for His help. Those beliefs held me back. They held me back because they were not my beliefs. They were given to me by others and I went along with it.
I don’t begrudge anyone with faith. I can’t say if they are wrong or right. I think faith helps a great deal of people. I still consider Father Steve my greatest mentor and one of the kindest (and most patient) individuals I’ve ever known.
I know a lot of people seek answers of creation and life after death, but I don’t think about that much anymore. I don’t really care. My mind has filled up with so many curiosities that may actually have an answer. Answers I can grasp and understand. Trying to know the unknown seems futile to me.
I just want to live the best life I can. I wish to be a good person because it is the right thing to do and not because I fear a fiery pit. I’m better at being a good person now, more-so than when I believed.
Not believing works best for me. Results may vary.
The US Government:We're not going to make it federally mandatory for people to get paid a wage they can actually live off of
The US Government:If people want to make a living, they'll just have to work 16+ hours a day
The US Government:And if their kids end up disenfranchised because of a lack of parental involvement, well that's not our problem
The US Government:In fact, what is our problem is creating a system that will funnel these disenfranchised youth into our prison system so they can work for corporations (that promise us money) for damn near free
The US Government:If they don't want to fall victim to this system, then they can seek higher education
The US Government:Except such an education will be inaccessible to most disenfranchised people and skewed in favor of the financially stable and white people
The US Government:And we're not going to make intervention programs like sex education and conflict resolution federally mandatory, because that's the parent's job
The US Government:The parent who is working 16 hours a day
