years ago when i used to skip around the dark web as though it were a beautiful garden of the worst things conjured from the human subconscious i ran into a forum administrator who identified as yu yevon from final fantasy X. and i don’t mean, “i share yu yevon’s love of ritually slaughtering the population until a young man or woman must sacrifice something they love only to be killed by it,” i mean that he thought he was a gross little red thing that looks like a cross between a deer tick and an infected hair follicle. it was in that moment i realized that no matter how weird i was there were people so divorced from reality that they have willfully decided to live in a different one, even if in that reality they still totally suck.
