I'll assume you meant "concept" because I'm not seeing how this game is conceited.
Conceit can be used in this context too! In this case being the conceit of being a Pokemon game and following the framework of the series.
Why...would they make that?
My man, stay away from AO3. You are still too innocent. Preserve what little sanity you have remaining.
Ever considered the laser eye surgery? I haven't because I'm still getting over the disappointment of being told that they actually don't let me shoot lasers out of my eyes when I was 10.
I considered it right up until I discovered that laser eye surgery interacts so badly with my condition that I'd literally have to have large amounts of my eyes removed and new ones transplanted in. Which I'll eventually have to do anyway, but hopefully not for another 10-15 years and by then they should be finished with the trials on artificial corneas.
"Ah the classic angry healer rant. Is CLEARLY only jealous of the Assassin/DPS dealer and how cool they are doing all the attacks" - Some MMO player probably
I can guaran-fucking-tee that any douchebag who has said that and meant it is EXACTLY the kind of player I was furious at. (Plus I have better DPS with my healer-Warden than anyone barring the right melee-Templar setup. So fuck 'em.)
True but were they by chance POSSESSED BY DEEEEEMONS!?!?!
OR WHATEVER THE FUCK HAPPENS IN THIS CHAPTER!?
Yeah well we know how I feel about Jan trying to do anything remotely like an allegory for mental health.
Ugh. Nothing worse than teenagers being "deep", like they're the first idiot to have some abstract thought.
Only one thing: Adults who genuinely believe in shit like reflexology. Look, acupuncture is one thing, it's been perfected over centuries and proven to actually help with quite a few physical conditions. The shitheads who believe massaging my foot the right way will 'cure' my autism can FUCK A MILLION MILES OF OFF, PREFERABLY INTO THE HEART OF THE SUN.
Eh. He's done worse.
And will do worse.
Honestly when this run eventually ends, some far-off day in the future, I will legitimately sit down and read the whole run and list off every case of emotional and/or physical abuse and actual fucking war crimes performed in this game so future generations can understand why Australia was bathed with the incandescence of my pure spite to become a continent of superbeings capable of removing Jan from existence entirely.
Nothing is off-limits in these types of fan-games.
Uuuuuuuugh don't remind me, some of the fucked up shit from the Pokemon fan game community genuinely scares me.
Well...it doesn't take a genius to use a fucking flying move on a fighting type.
Yeah but look at all the double battle partners this game has saddled you with beforehand.
Like with Gardevoir I can SEE where those freaks come from since it's very...woman-shaped but not Grumpig.
Seriously, stay away from AO3.
I'll just throw a couple of aspirin at him.
*cackle* Now that was a terribly deep lore cut you just pulled out there~
Why didn't Doctor Who ever just go "lol no" in response?
Because the Master never used it on the Doctor. And the one time he tried it on a companion with was Peri the bolshy American, who responded by yelling "And I am Perpugilliam Brown and I can shout louder than you!" (Do not start me on companion names in the JNT era, it's almost as mind-blowingly painful as a Moffat episode.)
You'll run out of spite before this game is done.
Even I wouldn't be able to match the amount of sneaky "haha I know stuff you don't" left in this game.
My spite is overflowing and limitless. I'm a queer athiest raised in the Anglican church and forced to attend a religious high school. My spite cannot be measured.
Whoa now, Mercury.
Let's not say something we can't take back.
Calling him worse than Steven Moffat is too far even for me.
Okay yeah fair, he's not worse than Moffat. He's getting way too goddamn close to the Dreaded Moffat Zone though.
While I'd LOVE to reassure you that it gets better...
It never really does.
Of course it doesn't, it's a Pokemon fan game.
By god, do I fucking despise Funko Pops.
I own one Funko Pop. It was a gift from my aunt and uncle so it's hidden in the back of my wardrobe as opposed to burning somewhere.
It's a Mr Mime and I made the most unholy sound of terror when I unwrapped it. Those fuckers are creepy enough without being Funko-ised.
...People actually buy this shit. Fuck's sake.
...you know what, I'm okay with this. You at least got something like a reward for this. Unlike almost everything ELSE this game forces you to do.
Look, bro, we all ship Sealita here but you're being a creeper again.
Entirely fair. I mean given what we're about to learn I don't blame you for running but going back is super-fucking-awkward.
They literally just took a screenshot of Clauncher's X/Y model and ran it through a filter and that's basically it. Still, it's a pretty awesome Pokemon to have!
Aelita, you are the only person in this entire region who is actually likable, of COURSE he's accepting your invitation.
This autumnal colour pallette is actually pretty good! Still a touch too pink for my tastes but still much nicer than most other areas in this game.
That entire sentence is provably a lie. You worried like crazy, she didn't fall into a coma she was fucking cursed by Garufan bullshit, and none of it would have happened if the game let the characters use their BRAINS sometimes.
Bitch I'm not even sure you actually know his name.
So you're the abusive old fucker who literally turfed Erin out onto the street. I'm keeping my eye on you, one false move and you BURN.
NEVER SAY THIS FUCKING SENTENCE TO YOUR CHILDREN.
Literally none of this would've been a problem if you'd chosen to even TRY and be honest with Aelita. If she knew what was going on, or that leaving would put innocent people at risk, she WOULDN'T HAVE LEFT. But instead you lied to her, harassed her, dumped the responsibility for her on your teenage grandchild, and (as we will soon see) caused this entire mess by NOT USING YOUR FUCKING BRAIN.
It was poor form on Souta's part for not letting you sleep in your own room over it too.
Also "let her out on her own"?
What the fuck kind of context am I missing from all this!?
This man should not be allowed near children, let alone responsible for the well-being of teenagers. And from what we're about to see Eldest probably shouldn't be either.
WHY IS IT EVEN A POKEMON GAME!?
THERE ARE MULTIPLE MAGIC SYSTEMS IN PLACE IN THIS FUCKING REGION!
FUCKING THIS! WHY IS THIS A POKEMON GAME! It literally hasn't been a Pokemon game since Zetta first turned up with his 'banishing people to dark realms' power! Just admit that the Pokemon conceit is holding you back and make your own goddamn game!
YOUR PRESUMABLE GRANDCHILD IS LYING THERE IN A COMA WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU.
Thank you, Erin, for saying exactly what everyone here was thinking! Christ!
To be fair...
You only NOW just told her this.
She would have behaved if you told her how serious it was instead of "Hey, you're finally awake. STAY RIGHT FUCKING THERE UNTIL WE SAY SO!"
Everything about this plotline is making me deeply angry. They constantly lie to and loom over Aelita without telling her a single goddamn thing, to buy time to solve a problem that Souta literally caused by deciding to be a foolish slapdash motherfucker and 'break' the 'chains' in Aelita's mind without thinking that a. they were there for a reason or b. that maybe Aelita would like the chance to CONSENT to any of this!
THISSSSSSSSS. Why is every adult in this region a manipulative emotionally abusive clusterfuck?!
Why would Texen get Keta's house? That has nothing to do with the league. Keta used to battle people on his front lawn.
I'm going to go over the rules of this League with a fine comb when I become champion.
...Texen fucking STOLE Keta's house, oh shit. You don't just inherit someone's property because you got their job! That house is legally Aelita's!
