THE WORST FEELING EVER IS WHEN YOURE SO ENTHUSIASTIC TELLING SOMEONE SOMETHING AND YOU CAN JUST PHYSICALLY FEEL THEM NOT CARING AT ALL SO YOU TRY HARDER BUT YOU JUST CANNOT GRASP THEIR ATTENTION SO YOU SLOWLY FADE OUT AND LET THEM GO BACK TO DOING WHAT THEY DO AND YOU WANT TO APOLOGIZE FOR TAKING TIME OUT OF THEIR DAY TO TELL THEM SOMETHING YOU’RE HAPPY ABOUT
Oh my God somebody actually put it in to words
A few years ago I got really excited about the Slenderman mythos and how cool it was to watch an American folktale emerge from the internet in found footage and forum post formats, so I told my dad in an attempt to get his film/television connections in on it early and he looked at one episode or Marble Hornets and went, “I can’t think of a single reason anyone would watch this. It’ll never make any money,” and went back to playing Starcraft. I was a very demoralizing moment.
Three years later I brought it up and he went, “Yep, definitely missed the boat on that one.”
Parents: dull and prosaic with the poison of life.
Single and ready to compromise my already low standards.
Have you guys tried salted butter? Despite being a bit unhealthier than unsalted butter, it’s great for when your closely guarded feelings of inadequacy haunt you in the cold silence of winter.
Still, tho, DC2 was my all-time favorite when I was younger, so it's got the mad nostalgia factor that excuses some of its more obvious flaws. Got any of those rose-tinted-glasses type favorites?
Chrono Cross, DragonSeed, Monster Seed, Jade Cocoon, Ephemeral Fantasia, and Suikodens 3 & 4
drunk jared, what do you look for in a lady?
someone who can challenge me
i’m the kind of guy who - quite literally - gets away with anything. consistently. and i’m smart, but painfully aware of it, leading to a positive feedback loop that makes my ego go out of control. so i talk a lot of bullshit and act like the king of the castle, when really i’m just some weird writer guy who occasionally wears a rubber horse mask at his desk. girls who don’t mind calling me on my shit (within reason, because too much and it can get a little demoralizing) always, ALWAYS catch my eye
i like pixie cuts, i like artists (i’ve dated a lot of artists, writers and photographers), i like weird hair colors, and i like smarts. i also like shorter girls because i’m 5’6” and have learned that anyone taller than that will probably not be into me based on height, especially in LA’s superficial wasteland. i like adventurous types. a lot. especially people who like to travel.
really i just like everybody. if they’re sweet and only try to shave a little of my self-esteem instead of crushing it i’m down to give them a chance.
Their terribleness didn't get to me until I tried to get medals from spheda. Fuuuuuck that shit. And that dude you had to recruit by beating his time in a race!
And he WASN’T EVEN THAT GOOD
Fucking Dark Cloud
How hard is it to be Jared?
Job security aside it’s not particularly hard unless I’m in a crunch month. You have to be okay with commenters shitting down your throat on one series of the seven you write, but those guys were shitty two years ago when I started and they’re still shitty now.
Psst. Jared. Have you ever played Dark Cloud 2?
I own it. Always liked the series. Sad they didn’t keep it going, but you have to admit those dungeon layouts were fucking terrible.
Oh drunk Jared, how I fancy you. And envy your ability to write and get paid for it. And, hey, are the kigus on the friendzone owned by Polaris or do y'all actually own them?
Most are owned by Polaris. Some, like Alex’s Kamen Rider and Jesse’s Skelekigu, are ones people picked up on their own.
Do you get bad hangovers?
Do you often french fries.
french fries when I pizza
You have Snapchat? Can I add you? I promise I won't sent inappropriate pictures/videos~
How inappropriate we talking?
I obviously can’t give out my account name publicly, so if you hit me back off anon we can do the swappy swap there.
