Alright, i posted a story that involves a sphinx giving a riddle. now, i've asked this riddle to over seventeen different people in real life. I thought this riddle up myself. i'm going to put it here, to see if anyone can guess what the answer is. anyone whose already guessed (you all know who you are) cant participate, because in technicalities, going by the "rules" of how this is set up, since this is MY sphinx asking this question, you're dead.
you're walking through the desert sands of egypt, seeking entrance to one of the many pyramids. you find your way blocked by an unusual creature. your memory logs it as a Sphinx. It bids you answer its riddle correctly, or face certain death. you choose to hear the riddle. it bids you such:
“I am one without beginning nor end. Forever I flow forward, though many seek to reverse me. I twist and turn, ever moving, ever branching, but never stopping. All feel my presence and many seek to fight against it. I am the ender of worlds, the beginning of life, and the one thing that not even the Gods can control with ease. What am I?”
message me your response in a PM. and yes, the little blurb before the riddle IS important.
OVER FIFTY PEOPLE HAVE TRIED AND FAILED. THAT'S FIFTY CORPSES SITTING IN FRONT OF MY TOMB. GOOD JOB LEN!
OI! PAY ATTENTION!
Alright mates, i came up with another riddle.
"I begin with the end of the written word. I arrive first, yet I am the last to remain. Whatever you put into me will not change, yet take me from any and the result will stay the same. For some, my presence is a welcome respite, for others, a damnation of effort. One needs me to exist, yet thousands have me to spare. Should you look into the mirror, you will find that I will always be there."
Same deal as with the Sphinx's Riddle, PM me your answers.
My name is Zero Shinzaki. obviously that's not my real name but only those who actually talk to me get to learn that. unless someone slips in a review. but whatever. i have a tumblr if you scroll down and happen to like my random rants and ravings about everything and nothing under the sun.
seek it out. or dont. your call. you will see wierd things, hilarious things, things that make you think and things that make you question the sanity of the collective of human existence.
especially that last one.
Also, i've begun making my own music. i'm still getting used to things, and i'm not the best at it. From this point on, there will be cues for certain songs. I'm building a compilation of all of them, but what i've created so far can be found here:
enjoy. these are the things that come out of my head.
i'm currently 23 years old, still confused about things, but i have some ideas as to where i want to go with my life. the question is, will the people around me let me do my thing, or will they keep trying to push things to happen when they want?
ANSWER: NO THEY WONT, THE FUCKNUTS.
No i didnt complete high school, yes you can laugh at me (i'll just launch a Gali at you, i think i can steal Norman's Phanto for a bit...) got my GED a couple years ago, passed with flying colors, no i dont know what i want to be when i immerse myself fully in the working world. though now i'm starting to get an idea. obviously, if you've read anything i've written, you can tell i'm good. not THE BEST, not OH MY GOD I WANT YOUR BIOGRAPHY good, but good. I'm thinking of possibly going into writing character backgrounds or story bases for possible new video games. i've got a few ideas...and maybe if i got the money and a crew together, we could make an MMO or something...
i'm not religious in the slightest, but you could say that i believe that anything is possible, and yes i mean ANYTHING. even flying space monkeys with shark heads and lasers shooting out of their asses riding giant green penisdemons surrounded by walking tentacle vagina monsters seeking to drain the semen of young female boys (you read that right, go watch bible black, then talk) to further their master's race of underground fish-dog fairy horses running around with fig-leaved underpants singing about hugging and love and giant sun babies giggling at flaming shit piles with TVs in the center which are really gateways to the Meat Dimension where everyone's missing socks are found.
no, i'm not high, nor am i drunk. insane? ...well you would be too if you found out at thirteen that everything you've lived was a lie.
yes, i'm bitter, yes, i know people have lead worse lives, well guess what, they arent me. am i an asshole because i feel no pity for them? Possibly. humans are worthless creatures, seeking to make themselves feel better about themselves and the world by beliving they actually give a shit. oh some of them do, and gods bless them, for they are the few "pure" beings in the world, but at the same time, damn them too. you're still ignorant, but keep it up, you might actually change someone's life around, and that's always an interesting thing to see.
In short, i dont care. but at the same time, i do. Dont you just hate walking the middle? no you dont, you cant even SEE the middle. and if you think you can, by all means, make words to me. i might find you interesting enough to have a plesant debate with you. tha'd be fun, i need to find more open minded people.
Hope, Courage, Wisdom, Intelligence, Purity, Desire, Comprehension. These are the seven "virtues" of humanity. everyone has at least one. Many have more. Few have most, and someone with all is damn near impossible to find. Read my fics, most of them involve further descriptions of these aspects. if enough people complain that i need to put those meanings here, i will.
Also, flamers (no, not gay people, the asshole reviewers that have nothing better to do than to bash a fic just because they can) are the most moronic creatures ever. You know why? Because they already failed. We got them to read it, we pissed them off SO much they just couldnt leave it at just clicking the X on their tab or window, they HAD to say something.
Guess what, retards? We win. Because we managed to catch your attention so strongly you just HAD to speak. That's a victory for us writers. Keep 'em coming, your stupidity simply fuels our stories.
That all your questions? Oh wait no, sexuality and all that.
Fine, i fucked a dude, but i prefer women. Happy? I was bored, he was bored, i was on top (cause i'm like that) we're cool, we both preferred women at the time though (in the end i think he fully embraced his homosexuality, but hey, good on him.) So yeah, i've played both sides of the field, prefer the one WITHOUT shit dangling between their legs though. Plus, boobs. Big bouncing sacks of fat, juices and muscle that are for some ungodly reason alluring to straight men and bi/lesbian women everywhere. I would honestly like to know why the FUCK those things are so damn...interesting.
You done with the questions now? No? Fuck you too. Just...email me them or something i dont give a crap what you do.
That is all.
This: This is something i found that describes what i've been trying to do perfectly.
This is from Finding Why's, a Harry Potter fanfic written by B. A. Ware:
Everyone's heard that a picture is worth a thousand words, but that's just because it lets you know what someone meant faster, without all the trouble of having to talk about it to you. Words, pictures, or anything else. They don't matter. What does is the idea standing behind them. If you don't believe me, then take a book written in a language you don't know. It surely is filled with words, but what good it does to you when you don't know their meaning? On the other hand, if you would listen to a sad song without lyrics, then no matter where it comes from, you still can feel sadness flowing out of the notes. Without knowing the feeling, being sad is just a meaningless expression. Understanding someone isn't about knowing what words he spoke, but catching that fleeting idea that he is trying to share.
This. This is realism right here. this is Truth.

Lyrics...yes. Hymmnos is a beautiful language isnt it? i found a place for the lyrics and the translations of what they mean, in case i dont provide inside. also, i have copied down into specific files the lyrics as well. Aquagon and all others who worked so hard to translate such a wonderful language, my semi-existent hat is off to you.
Rant on People:
Adults. i cant friggin stand adults. and i mean the older adults. the late thirties and higher ones. for one main key reason. It's as if they forgot all the important lessons they learned about life, love and understanding while they were teenagers and younger. it's like they force themselves to think "ok i'm an adult now. everything has to be different." No. it doesnt. yes, some things have to change. they have to grow. but growth isnt the removal of the old replacing with entirely new. Growth is taking the old, and morphing it to fit the new situation. Growth is to add new to old, merge the two, and change yourself to fit the new situation. Adults dont grow. they dont change. they force themselves to stagnate by "killing" who they were in the past. They force themselves to lose their experiences, only remembering that it happened, rather than the feelings that went on and led them to happen.
They suddenly decide that the concept of being "wrong" is suddenly something that cannot be allowed. they think that they have to be correct all the time, they think that if they're somehow wrong, they're a failure. no. it just means you were bloody wrong about that. big friggin whup! You're still people. people are flawed, people make mistakes. if it's perfectly fine for everyone else to be wrong but not themselves? bullshit. Make your mistakes. fuck up. fuck up big, fuck up small, just fuck up. but realize you fucked up. learn how. learn why. and understand.
adults are full of shit because they willingly stagnate themselves. they shut off their growth. they figure that because they're older, because they're under a certain title, they have to act a specific way, and shun all other methods. No. Act as yourself. the "Self" you built when you were a fuckin teenager doesnt need to die when you hit ANY age. grow? maybe. but growth is the act of adding new to old and merging them together. people dont stop "growing" until the're dead. and even then, their bodies continue to grow for a while.
The trick to it all, is to let yourself go. Let go of your ego, let go of your perceptions, and see through the eyes of others. if you dont understand something, look at it from another angle. change the situation that caused the problem, and you can understand how the problem came about, and how it can be resolved. but you have to let go of yourself to do it. and that's a sacrifice too many adults dont want to do, or dont think they have to do. no, you dont have to, but if you want to learn, if you want to live peacefully, your life the way you choose it, you should. or else you're just going to keep causing problems, both for yourself, and for the people around you.
and why do you all think that just cause you happen to be older than someone else, that magically makes you better? there's people older than you who spent their entire lives living in their parent's home, never doing anything for themselves or their lives. and at the same time, there's people younger than you, who have done things at their age that most people dont do even when they're old enough. so if a friggin sixteen year old can safely sail around the world on a damn boat, under mostly their own power, then what makes you better than them? can you say you did that at that age? no? then it seems by the logic most adults want to live by, that sixteen year old, is better than you. all you have on them is time. you had time to make your moves, do your thing, make your choices and learn your lessons. it doesnt mean you did. all it means to be an "adult" is to be older. to have been around for a few decades. it means you had a chance to do stuff. not that you did.
i went to antarctica at age what...fourteen? fifteen? yeah. round then. cant remember the exact age. going by Adult logic, that means that because i did something at age fifteen or so, that very few others did at that exact age range, i'm better than most of the people in the world. do i believe that? No. but that's how things seem to be, going by adult logic. in reality, all it means is that in a shorter timeframe, i was given an opportunity to make an action, and that action happened to be a rare one. people are given these opportunities all the time, but only a select few actually act on them. you're not better than anyone just because you're older than them. all you have on them is the fact that you were around longer. that's it. it means you had more chances to experiance things. not so much that you know anything more than the teenager in front of you.
if adults could just realize that they're nothing special compared to their younger counterparts, if adults could just let go of their giant egos and swallow their pride, admit that they fucked up and learn from their mistakes...
well...we wouldnt have so many goddamn conflicts now would we?
OH GOD FUCK ADULTS.
Really. REALLY. You fucking morons. Is it SO hard to believe how fear works? Is it THAT difficult to think that someone, a CHILD could make up a seemingly perfectly fitting story of someone's horrible wrongdoing...and be LYING?! Do none of you see how children think? They think in steps! Simple methods! They see something they dont like, they want nothing to do with it! They see something they think they like, but time passes and they figure out they dont like it, they want it GONE! It doesnt matter to them how they have to get it gone, they just want it GONE!
But if they're afraid, they're not going to do it outwardly. If they know nobody's going to listen to them, they're going to stew on it, plan, plot, come up with a way to get it out of their lives. And if they have to SIT on that thought for years? The plan will get less childish, and more focused.
Clearly none of you idiots understand how fear works. If you're brought up around fear, brought up in a household where you feel like the slightest mistake will get you screamed at, physically threatened, surrounded by anger and hatred, you're going to be messy. And then when someone else, someone NEW comes along, and changes things up, you get nervous. Because it was familiar. Look at what children, hell even some ADULTS do, when their Parent/Sibling/Ex-whatever brings someone new around. They get sketchy. they get testy, and possessive and defensive. Maybe they seem to warm up to the person, and maybe they actually do. But then something further changes. Things start getting bad. They start getting the feeling that things arent getting better. that things are getting worse.
Then what do they do? They erase it. it's a threat. it makes them feel like crap, and it seems that new person is just making things worse. So they come up with something. something huge. something difficult to prove or disprove, something that cant be instantly refuted, easily classified as a lie. they put everything they have into that. all for the sake of returning what appeared to be a chaotic situation, into normalcy. They wouldnt even have to be fearful all their lives to do it. it's standard. people do it all the damn time!
So why is it so difficult to believe that a child would come up with something fake, but so horrible it makes everyone think it's real, all because they were afraid? Afraid of change? Afraid of things falling apart even further? Why is it so hard to believe that when that child, who failed to make that thing go away, would try to push it behind them, then meet someone, tell them the lie, unconsciously, have them believe the lie, and then bring EVERYTHING back up, they're still lying? They've gotten older now, they've gotten a stronger hold on how to wield their mind and emotions properly. They can fake, for the sake of their family. Even when the true threat to their family is still living with them and NOT the person they're casting blame upon.
The mind is a powerful thing. It will create events, for one to believe, just so there is a conscious reason for someone to be acting a certain way. and it is more likely to do that the more threatened it feels. so if a child, grows up in a household where yelling and screaming, manipulations, purchases to buy people's silence and obedience, threats of bodily harm if they ever mention anything of that nature to someone; where their own creators will turn around, backstab, lie, demonify anyone who they believe has inconvenienced them in the SLIGHTEST, is commonplace...
is it that difficult to believe that a child will grow up, thinking that is what "love" is, and that someone who tries to change that, someone who DIDNT roll over and obey, someone who refused to simply bow down to the whims of the destructive "RULER" of the home...is it truly that difficult to believe they will make something up, something horrible, something almost impossible to prove or disprove, in the hopes of "getting their life back" because someone outside the pain and fear and uncertainty, someone who makes them feel safe, even if that safe feeling is false, told them it would?
if it is, to you?
stay the FUCK out of any business that involves children, or dealing with potential internal mental imbalances. because you dont know SHIT!
What is it about parents that makes them so fucking retarded? it's bad enough that they're adults that have cast away their old selves, but then they start up an entirely new type of bullshit once they have a kid. Yeah, shit changes when you have a kid. but how it changes varies from situation to situation. what is it about parents that makes them unable to fucking get when they're fucking things up for their kids, for their family? It's cause they're still fuckin people, they're still adults, and they're still human. they fuck up, but they refuse to see and understand it. they feel like they have to be such role models, or they feel like they have to show their kids only this or only that, that they completely fuck everyone over. Parents, you wanna know why your kid is going around and snorting all this shit? it's cause you dont fucking get them. and you will never get them, until you let fucking go of your damn ego, and remember how you felt when you were their age. not just that you were. or that you did stuff. but the feelings. you have to remember the emotions, the thoughts that made you act the way you did. put yourself in their shoes, understand fully where your kid is coming from.
you wanna do your "duty" as a "parent?" Stop being one. really. just for a moment, stop thinking of yourself as a parent, as a role model as a key. look back within yourselves, and remember what it was like to be their age. remember what it was like to feel how they felt, to feel opressed by your parents, to feel like they didnt get you. and then take that knowledge, take that past experience, and learn from it. even if you fucked up and ended up making a huge gap between you and your kid, who the hell says it's impossible to bridge? nobody. the only one that keeps unity from coming around is you. yeah, sometimes a kid is just a dick. but then you gotta think, why? what led to them being like this? if you want your kid to change, you gotta change their surroundings, change how you do things and see things and act on things. and then they'll begin to change in response. especially if all the damn kid wants is understanding. which to be honest, is all most kids want.
New as of 8/6/10:
People: Why? Why do people give into emotional foolishness? why do seemingly perfectly trustworthy people have to turn around and reveal that nothing you said or did in their lives made a difference? Why is it that people, upon encountering a topic they care about, begin to reject anything that isnt their belief? And then they dare argue that those against them, whom may have done even worse things with that topic, are worse than they are? Does it really matter who did what? Both sides are being blind idiots, both sides are ignoring the true wishes of the other.
And then when someone comes along, someone who sees truth in both sides...someone who understands where both sides are coming from, when that one being comes along and tries to explain not just the similarities between sides (refraining from negative, just neutral ones), someone who tries to profess to both sides that the other has a point that you might ACTUALLY end up agreeing with...said being gets lashed out at by both? Why...is it so difficult for people to just shelve their feelings for a brief moment, see things as they truly are, a conceptual existence brought about by our will, and realize "holy shit, i dont like them, i dont like what they think, i dont like what they're doing...but holy shit they have a point?" Why can people not just take that one truth, acknowledge it, nod their heads to their opponents, and then continue with their way? is it truly that difficult to see someone else's point, but still not agree with it? Do people truly think that by admitting someone else, while not correct, may have actually struck a good point, is betraying what they themselves think and feel?
Or is it that we, the observers, the bringers of the middle ground, the ones who seek the Truth...is it that our way of thinking is far too complex for those bound by emotion? I ask you, which direction is humanity meant to go? The direction of emotion, where they are blinded to fact and reality because their emotions have flared so much, their beliefs have been stood against so strongly, they refuse anyone who doesnt go with what they think? Is it the path of Data, where only cold hard information is supposed to be used and processed, ignoring reactions due to "pointless" attachments such as emotion or belief, faith or desire? Or is it the path of Truth, where one seeks information, but feels emotion? The path where one knows how to feel, but also how to think. Yet the two are not separate, they work in tandem with one another, Thinking when Thought is required, Feeling when Emotions are required, and otherwise just living their lives how they please, but able to see truth wherever they go? The ability to feel, but not be blinded, to seek knowledge, but not be cold?
To be honest...i believe we are meant to be the third. But i can accept that is simply my belief, and others may not agree. But that is my belief, and i understand many will challenge it. but if they do not agree, i see no reason to war with them, unless they try to force me to conform to what they think. We, the observers, the seekers of Truth, can accept and respect others' opinions and actions, for what they are, actions born of what that entity believes to be the "correct" path. We may not agree with them, or their desires, or their thoughts, and we may indeed attempt to impede them, especially when those that we care about are threatened, but we can at least accept and respect their actions for that they are actions of that person's will. A choice that person has made.
But...why is it so hard for the others to do it? Are we simply just wierdos? Freaks that are meant to be wiped out after plaguing the world? Or are we the correct ones? The ones humanity was meant to become? Or are we just that? Ourselves? Do we have no purpose but to exist, and nothing more?
I wish i had answers...
Why does nobody get how resentment works? Resentment occurs when someone is slighted in some way. Why is it that "friends" dont get that when you bail on your friends, even for a good reason, if you dont tell them what's going down either beforehand or at the time you gotta jet, they're going to be pissed with you, for good reason? People seem to think it's perfectly fine to bail, and then have an actual valid reason...but not tell anyone until after someone has already bitched them out for it.
As if that magically makes everything better.
No, you're just making it worse. why? because you're letting them get pissed with you before you tell them what's what. They're your friends. they exist so you dont have to deal with everything on your own! Dont wanna tell them specifics? just give them a general warning that something unpleasant is going on in your life, and it might fuck with your plans at some point. if they're your friends, they'll take the warning to heart, and when they start to get pissed because you bailed, immediately they'll cycle through what you said (unless they're idiots, to which i say fuck them), and stop it from happening.
You cant just bail and expect them to assume you had a good reason, just because you're friends. especially not if you do it twice in a row. and even less so if you've recently had a big change in your life (such as suddenly having a significant other), which would allow them to have slight thoughts against your worth of trust. And guess what? when you whirl around after they bitched at you for bailing and giving some arbitrary explanation like "something came up", and you dont bother explaining the "something" until after? you're still an asshole.
It doesnt matter if your dog just got hit by a car, your mom just got shot, or your kid just shoved a broken pencil up her fucking cunt. By not saying even slightly what it is that's causing you to suddenly break your awaited plans, you're allowing resentment to build, and by turning around and revealing what it was, you're just being a bigger asshole, because you're making it seem like they should forgive you for leaving without any explanation, on the grounds that you're friends, and that now you're telling them what it was.
And if YOU dont even know what it is? But you're told its serious? Tell them "look i dont know what the hell happened but something big apparently just went down and i'm needed. i gotta jet, i'm sorry, but i'll let you know when i know." That, will prevent resentment from building, and you make yourself not an asshole because hey, it's not your fault you didnt know it was just your idiot of a sister demanding you come home to help her open a jar of pickles. It's not your fault the dumb bitch got herself knocked up. But it is your fault for bailing, even if you have a good reason, if you dont explain what that reason is, and if you dont know, its your fault for not saying you have no idea but what little information you have suggests immense importance.
If you're kid's shitting blood, and you dont wanna say exactly what's going down? Just say "hey...uhh...things are kinda off right now. i might have to jet. it's...something i'm not too comfortable going into detail with but it's serious." and if they still resent you for actually having a life? fuck 'em.
But dont just vanish, and expect people to forgive you because you had a good reason, and you told them after. Especially not if it's a continuous situation, and nobody but you and one other person knows about it, and you're bailing left and right on people who you claim are like family to you, and not saying why until after they've summarily bitched you out.
because you know what? by doing that, you're trying to turn the tables on them, and make them feel like assholes for being rightly pissed off at you. and that makes you even worse, because you're a manipulative sack of shit that needs to be killed for the good of humanity.
resentment doesnt just poof because you had a good reason for bailing. it's like a stain on a fancy carpet. it just doesnt come out until time passes, helped by scrubbing, but mostly time, and sometimes, it never comes out. but what you can do, is preempt that resentment, by at least giving a small blurb about why you have to go, other than "something" came up. the only time "something came up" works, is if the present company already knows about the bullshit that's going on in your life.
but dont misuse it. because the resentment will triply build if you use that truth to do something that's a lie. because they will find out. and when they do, they will never trust you again, because even if it was only that one time you did it, they're going to look over every other time you left, and start to believe you've been lying all along. And then? then, you lose your friends, and quite possibly your future, because sometimes your friends end up in high places, and years later your paths cross, and they remember. and then they block you from fulfilling your dream, because you did something stupid.
Dont try to be all macho or loner if you have friends. especially not ones you claim to cherish. if shit's going down, warn them, ESPECIALLY if you dont see them that often, be it because of distance, or schedule conflicts, and you have to bail.
Resentment is a powerful thing. it can be positive, in very small quantities. but generally? it's a negative emotion that mostly leads to further negativity. If you've got secrets you need to keep, best make sure they wont interfere with your friendships. if you've got shit going on in your life, best make sure it wont fuck up a planned gathering that's been months in the making.
Because if you dont? Kiss your friends, your family, your reputation, and your future goodbye. Because people hold grudges. and if you're not acting to keep them from having a reason to hold a grudge against you?
tch, then you might as well just not have friends.
the only time this can be ignored, is if you prefer telling the truth, and telling the truth causes resentment. if telling the truth causes resentment, dont lie instead, because lies create their own level of resentment even if they're "good" lies. just keep telling the truth. eventually, they'll kill the resentment on their own, or leave forever, because you refused to betray them by lying to them. if they leave...they werent worthy to be your friend in the first place.
Rants on Characters:
Alright, though in most of my fics it's clear what characters i can't stand, i figure it's best to put it here exactly what my gripes are with ceartain ones.
Starting with Naruto:
Sauske: I fucking HATE HIM. He really needs a reality check. His entire LIFE is based on what he found out through a GENJUTSU used by his brother, who claimed to kill the clan "to test his strength." Ok, i get he was a kid when it happened, so he wouldnt have been able to see things too clearly, but come on, as he gets older, you'd think that he'd realize "Hey wait a minute...fuckin Itachi used a Dojutsu against me...could he have been...lying?" No. He doesnt. Anyone who thinks Sasuke is sooo cool or sooo smart needs to be shot. Repeatedly. And then strangled with their own intestines. He DID have potential. that he did. He had skill, that he did. But rather than being SMART and gaining his strength through true work, like Itachi did (note, Itachi was Anbu at what, 11? 12? Sasuke JUST hit Genin by 12, already he's FAR behind), he goes and gets it the cheap way through the curse seal. And before anyone bitches and says "well naruto uses the fox's chakra!" USE YOUR BRAIN! Naruto was practically BORN with that ability. It's like saying Sasuke is cheap for using the Sharingan (which he is, but that's a matter of the ability itself, not the user, for once). As soon as Naruto was born BAM there's Kyuubi in him. Not to mention, Kyuubi will act on its own! The curse seal requires Sasuke to want it's power to activate, wheras if Naruto's getting owned (or Big K is bored) Kyuubi will throw some chakra at Naruto.
Overall, Sasuke COULD have been damn good a character. But his stupidity, ignorance and sheer worthlessness denied him such. And NOW the bloody bastard magially has the power to supress Kyuubi. That's like saying some random nobody can kill God. BULL MOTHER FUCKING SHIT!
Naruto: Dont have as many gripes with him, but fuckin A man! Fuckin TALK TO THE MOTHER FUCKING KYUUBI! Even if the bastard lies at LEAST you're getting information! You've got a bloody God-Level being sealed in your gut! TALK TO THE BASTARD! Maybe, just MAYBE, you'll find USEFUL shit out! Fine if you dont want to use it's power, i understand it can kill you if you go to far with it, but fucking CHRIST! The bastard's got nothing to do but watch and sleep! Give it something to do dammit! It may be a demon but nobody said it was PURE EVIL! And even if it was, sometimes pure evil can be useful!
Konoha as a Whole: Needs to be destroyed. Seriously. What group of idiots finds out that the thing that tried to blow their village to hell is sealed in a CHILD, and then calls for the child's death? What. The. Fuck. I hope Kishimoto blows that place to hell. I really do. They didnt need to pamper him. That they did not. But treat him like an equal. He neednt be treated like a savior, or a god, or anything. Just a normal kid. People are stupid. I mean look at Gaara. They feared him, but that was justified, he killed shit. Naruto didnt. they had no right to treat him as they did. And they still did. Thus, they need to be destroyed. Ichiraku and his daughter, the rookie nine, and one or two other people deserve to escape, Konohamaru Corps included. Everyone else, bye bye.
If i ever write a Naruto fic, i'm going to probably end it with Konoha's destruction, or someone casting a mass genjutsu on the entire village that causes them to be placed inside Naruto's shoes, and treated as he was. Those that truely, wholely regret what they've done will be freed, while everyone else will slowly rot.
More later as i figure shit out.
MOAR RANTAGE! Shit just got real. Also, if you havent been following the manga, FUCK OFF. And i mean that in the nicest way possible. thar be spoilers below.
On the Demon Containers: Alright, i've got a theory. The closer to "synchonised" the demons and their hosts are, the more powerful the jinkurichi or whatever way it's spelled. (cant be assed to look it up right now.) Thus: NARUTO IS THE WEAKEST ONE. Here's why: Going by my theory, the stronger the link between demon and host, the more power without backlash can be obtained, therefore the more potent the power. with Yugito and Nibi, it seemed that the two were pretty much alright with one another, so she went down fighting, and fighting hard. with whoever had the Yonbi, i heard somewhere that he and his demon are basically in complete harmony, which lets him wield a crapton of strength.
now for the meat of it, and the key to my theory. Killerbee and Hachibi. Let's compare him with say, Naruto and Kyuubi, Hachibi being one tail of strength less than Kyuubi itself. When Naruto hits a "tailed state" he wields a "Fox Shroud" which varies in power and number of tails depending on how much power he draws forth. So far, he can "safely", that is to say, he can retain his mentality, go up to three tails. any higher and not only does Kyuubi start taking over, but his own body begins shredding itself from the amount of power being channeled.
Alright. That kinda makes sense. it IS demonic chakra, and Naruto IS a human. It's been said ALOT that humans arent meant to wield demonic chakra. So kyuubi's chakra hurting Naruto after a certain level of potency makes sense. HOWEVER.
Killerbee. Against sasuke, Killerbee whipped out full power. Meaning he went All Eight Levels of power available to him. Translation, his "Ox Shroud" hit eight tails, his demon's max level of power...WITH NO DAMAGE TO KILLERBEE WHAT SO EVER. After the fight, we find KB and his demon doing a back and forth like old war buddies. THIS LENDS HEAVY EVIDENCE TO MY THEORY. Naruto loses control at four. that's half the amount of tails Killerbee is able to wield. Hell even Gaara was stronger than naruto. Why? Because even though Shukaku was manipulating the bastard, Gaara and Shukaku were in Synch, sharing the same thought. Kill it until it dies. then kill it some more. Gaara never technically summoned a "shroud" but he did change his physical form to one matching the Shukaku at one point, along with letting the beast himself free. Gaara had more control over his demonic powers than anyone else. Yes, it can be reasoned that it's because he had the weakest one, therefore, like Sakura, it was easier to control because there was less of it. But then the counter to that is thus: SHUKAKU WAS AN INSANE MOTHER FUCKER. Sanity, or lack thereof, can be a major factor in one's power. Take Broly for example. He's one crazy fuck. But he's strong enough to be on par in his full state, with an SSJ3.
Anyway, back to the rant. Everyone in Naruto is like "oh no, dont use Kyuubi's power." Or "I dont want to depend on the Fox." or crap like that. NARUTO WAS PRACTICALLY BORN WITH THE DAMN FOX'S POWER. THE POWER IS TECHNICALLY HIS. HE HAS EVERY RIGHT AND LOGICAL REASON TO USE IT AS HE SEES FIT. Yet he doesnt. Blah blah blah, he's the hero, he doesnt need evil power blah blah, he's got Sage Mode blah blah SHUT UP. He has the strength of a near GOD-class being inside him. But rather than reasoning with, or speaking with, or even just sitting there staring at, the fox, he antagonizes it, irritates it, and decides to only use its power as a OH FUCK I"M GOING TO DIE thing. Naruto went Eight tails recently. simply going six made the fox's skeleton appear around his "shroud." going eight brought back the damn MUSCLE SYSTEM. All that was left was the damn body. Meanwhile Killerbee goes MAX (read: eight) and only gets a shroud. without personal damage due to the power being channeled. And you know what? That makes sense. why? Because two like powers clashing creates problems. KB and his demon are generally in synch. Naruto and Kyuubi arent, so when naruto goes past a certain level, Kyuubi's power hurts naruto because kyuubi and naruto dont like each other in any way, shape or form.
Rockman.exe: The act of Cross-Fusion requires both Operator and Navi to be in synch, at the very least on good terms with one another. If they arent, the Cross-Fusion breaks, or doesnt activate at all, leaving the Operator in a dangerous situation, and dealing massive corruptive damage to the navi. The same principal can be applied here. Naruto and Kyuubi are NOT on good or even tolerable terms with one another. Therefore Naruto gets weakened by using kyuubi's power. KB seems to just wield the power, with no problems whatsoever.
Also, FUCK YOU KISHIMOTO. Seriously. Whenever the manga starts dealing with Uchiha's again, it gets shitty, and naruto acts like the complete opposite of what he usually does. Naruto was ON HIS KNEES BEGGING. ON HIS GODDAMN KNEES! NARUTO DOESNT KNOW THE CONCEPT OF BOWING BEFORE ANYBODY! HIS WAY WAS TO EITHER REASON WITH YOU, OR KICK YOUR ASS AND THEN REASON WITH YOU, OR REASON WITH YOU BY KICKING YOUR ASS, OR REASON WITH YOU BY SAVING YOUR FUCKING LIFE AND CHANGING EVERYTHING THAT WAS SHITTY ABOUT IT AROUND! HE DOESNT BOW ON HIS FUCKING KNEES! yes, naruto will show respect if SOMEONE DESERVES IT. Otherwise, the biggest thing you'll ever get out of him is a bow of the head!
YOU HAVE RUINED THE AWESOME THAT IS NARUTO.
If you wanna include them, make them a sort of Byakugan or Rinnegan ability. And Izanami allows one to view and interact with (as in speak to, or hear) souls. Izanagi does something more with them, i'm not sure what. there. done. eye powers are balanced.
Seriously this is bullshit. Everything post-timeskip has been stupid as hell. i'm not even going to get into the whole dick move with Hinata's confession thing. This is basically how it is: pre-timeskip, everything had a weakness. every powerful ability had some inescapable damning consequence for using it, or glaring weakness that only select people knew about.
Byakugan: near 360 degree vision, penetrating sight, telescopic vision. Weakness was bright flashes or massive chakra flares could "blind" them, and for some reason there's a point at their spine they cant see through. Also range and amount of penetration of the vision varies depending on the skill/power of the wielder. BALANCED ABILITY.
Sharingan: hypnotic suggestions through illusionary spinning of tomoe. photographic memory. capability to see flows of chakra, but not to the level of the Byakugan. Capable of matching subconscious knowledge of muscle tics and warnings to "predict" opponents moves. Capable of "memorizing" jutsu by way of copying both physical hand signs, and chakra flows, combined with photographic memory. advanced state known as Mangekyo, requiring immense mental trauma to trigger.
Mangekyo capable of wielding a powerful Ninjutsu by pushing a burst of chakra through one eye, and a powerful genjutsu by doing the same for the other. (I'm ignoring susanoo cause it makes no fucking sense, and this is pre-timeskip breakdown anyway).
Weaknesses: Prediction ability worthless if user cant match speed of opponent. Prediction ability worthless if opponent knows Sharingan's tricks and actively works to fool it. Prediction ability worthless if secondary attacks accompany primary (as seen with OTK Naruto's tailed cloak) that follow different path to wielder. Non-Uchiha with Sharingan find their chakra draining quickly due to usage of the eye. Incapable of copying "bloodline" abilities. Mangekyo state requires immense mental trauma to trigger. Repeated usage of Amaterasu and/or Tsukuyomi begins eroding wielder's sight. WEAKNESSES COUNTERACT THE STRENGTHS: BALANCED ABILITY
Eight Gates: wielder is capable of boosting natural abilities beyond that of normal human limits. Weakness: every "gate" opened past the first begins straining the body and mind further and further. If all eight are opened, the wielder gains power nearing that of a god, but dies due to over-stress afterwards. BALANCED ABILITY.
After timeskip, all concept of balance went right out the bloody window. What the hell man. What the hell.
On Harry Potter:
Dumbledore: You fucking twatbucket. My GODS man what is your PROBLEM?! You put the world's savior with a bunch of bloody animals who HATE him, IGNORE all the bullshit he goes through, and sends him back EVERY YEAR! Mother FUCK! Did you not SEE the fucking adress on the letters?! CUPBOARD UNDER THE MOTHER FUCKING STAIRS! That ALONE should have sent warning bells through your head! I mean SHIT, the boy went through a near death experiance at 11! TELL HIM SHIT DAMMIT! Even if it was the slightest thing, even if it was mere speculation, telling the bloody prick something other than "I will tell you when you're older" could have saved LIVES you asshole! You fucked up so many god damn times, and then went and purposfully got yourself KILLED, so you wouldnt have to explain shit! You fucking COWARD! Honestly, any dumbledore supporters need to be beaned in the fucking head with a massive shovel. The man may be powerful but he's a fucking IDIOT! Didnt want him to grow up with a big head? GIVE HIM TO FUCKING SQUIBS! I mean JESUS! You have an entire GROUP of beings that were born from magical families, but cant use magic themselves! He could learn the best of BOTH WORLDS! He learns how to apreciate Muggle talents and abilities, and also learns how to function in the magical world. WIN MOTHER FUCKING WIN! But no, you wanted him to be your weapon, you effing WANKER! Your fucking buggery lead to such needless CRAP! I mean bloody fucking hell man! Toss the boy to some squibs that will take good care of him, pop a fidelius over the sods and be done with it! Check in every year or so to make sure shit's all hunky dory and you've just saved the mother fucking world without doing jack SHIT!
Not to MENTION, even though you couldnt permanently rid the world of Voldemort, the LEAST you could have done is blast the bloody wanker's body back to hell and give Harry some more time!
Dumbledore, you FAIL!
Harry Potter: You're a puppet. Dammit harry you're a sodding PUPPET! You hate your fame, but it can be used as a weapon against people. You're so afraid of alienating your friends you literally dumb yourself down just so they stick around. I mean come on, you're Harry Bloody POTTER! Do you REALLY think the wizarding world would have allowed for them to snap your wand before second year? HELL NO! I mean you've had maybe, five times in your life, where you actually grew a pair. Honestly Harry...stop being such a bloody puppet...so much potential...wasted...
Hermione Granger: She's such a snobby little bitch isnt she? First off, go get laid. Seriously. No, better yet, go get gangbanged. By all the Weasely brothers. Just for the hell of it. BOOKS ARENT EVERYTHING. YOU ARE NOT GOD. GRADES DONT MEAN SHIT IN A FIGHT. You are PATHETIC. You cling to the information in your books, claiming that if it's written it is. You refuse to have someone do BETTER than you. You cant accept anything that isnt in a book-WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED TO THAT SWEET LITTLE GIRL FROM BOOK ONE?! You fucking LAUGHED at Harry when he said you were amazing, citing the very things that you've now become the staplegirl for, as NOT MATTERING! That was your most brilliant moment. back when you were 11! WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED?! You actually sounded WORTHY then! You were fucking AWESOME! You knew the difference between book knowledge and instinctual knowledge! And then it VANISHED!
AND WHAT THE FUCK IS YOUR FETISH WITH FREEING HOUSE ELVES?! HONESTLY! Do you like, get off on that shit? I mean GOD! You dont even bother gathering information from THEM! You just assume, assume, assume! And what the hell is your deal with accepting everything a teacher says as gospel?! So the fuck WHAT?! If Dumbledore said to you "Go jump off the north tower. I assure you, you will survive." You'd fucking do it. Why? Because dumbledore says so. No wonder so many people pair you up with insane shit like Snape, and Lupin and teachers in shit. You OBVIOUSLY have a Schoolgirl fetish. And guess what happens when something that was written in a book stating "impossible" proves possible? YOU FREAK! You are SO CLOSED MINDED IT"S NOT EVEN FUNNY! I mean JESUS! You treated Luna, a poor virtually friendless girl, like a LEPER, just because she believed in things that couldnt be proven in books. Fucking Hypocrate...really.
Molly Weasley: God woman what the fuck is wrong with you? Get it through your head, THEY"RE IN A FUCKING WAR! You may not like the things happening but it's THEIR generation that will be the new soldiers, they NEED TO KNOW! and what RIGHT have you to talk to Sirius like that in HIS OWN GOD DAMN HOME?! Someone should have killed you. No, that would have been too easy. Someone should have tortured you, broken all your bones into a fine dust, re-grew them, all while forcing you to watch images of Ginny being gangraped, and the boys getting ripped to shreds over and over again. BY YOUR COMMAND. Really woman, what is your terminal malfunction? Yes, we know, you dont want to lose your family. But jesus woman, you're doing more harm than good trying to keep them away from all forms of this. Let them get at least the bare minimum information. Keep them informed, keep them busy, keep them safe by letting them KNOW.
There's more i wanna say about her and hermione but it's kinda elsewhere now.
Tales of the Abyss:
FUCK YOU ANISE! That's right i said it. MOTHER FUCK YOU. I hate you i hate you i hate you. my GOD you're annoying! I mean WHAT THE FUCK! I USED to like her. i really did. I mean, she's got some badass spells, but FUCK! You greedy little lying whorish money grubbing twat basket fourteen year old SLUT! WHY?! WHY?! WHY?! WHY do you NOT FUCKING GET IT! TELL THEM! You fucking RETARD! Mohs was a fucking ASS, and you had a DUDE WHO COULD WIPE OUT AN ENTIRE FUCKING CONTENENT ON YOUR FUCKING TEAM! You had Jade MOTHER FUCKING I"M A BADASS CURTIS with you! INDIGNATION! BOOM PROBLEM SOLVED! Mother of FUCK! So WHAT if your parents are in debt! THE GUY IS TRYING TO KILL PEOPLE! KILL HIM INSTEAD! That way GASP! not only will you save lives BUT YOUR PARENTS WILL NO LONGER BE UNDER HIS THUMB! BRRRRLAFGOEGNOEG QEOGOWGNOWNGVOGAAAAAAAAAHHH!!
Yes. she pisses me off that much.
AND ANOTHER THING! WHY THE FUCK DIDNT YOU TELL ARIETTA?! She was on her fucking death bed. and you didnt tell her the guy you inadvertantly killed WASNT THE MAN SHE LOVED!
and no, i dont blame her for Ion's death. That's right, i DONT blame her. Why? Because Ion was going to die anyway. After reviewing the game three times, seeing that sequence THREE TIMES, and watching him die three times, i have concluded that Ion was going to end up dying for some noble reason anyway. Original Ion was pure badass. I mean come on, he was so awesome that Arietta BIT HIM. Yes, that's right, before she became a fon master guardian, she bit Ion. It was awesome. But yes, Replica Ion intended to die. He was probably gonna kick the bucket anyway, so why the fuck not go out in a blaze of glory no? So no, i dont blame her for Ion's death...BUT I BLAME HER FOR ARIETTA'S!
Jade Curtis: Jade. Jade Jade Jade. You fucking asshole. You knew. you FUCKING KNEW. And you didnt say anything. "Oh, i prefer not giving my opinion until i'm ceartain of what i think." FUCK YOU. TELL THE BASTARDS ANYWAY! At least THEN they have an idea of what might be happening. You knew he was a replica. you knew he had some wierd shit going on. but no. you say NOTHING and then DARE. you fucking DARE blame him for Akzeriuth?! MOTHER FUCK YOU JADE! You pathetic worthless piece of shit! Oh dont get me wrong. He's badass with his Indignation and Pac-Man belt. But he's still a fucking piece of shit.
Natalia Kimlasca-Landalvear (FUCK YOUR NAME): What is your terminal malfunction? I mean really? ASCH ASCH ASCH. THAT"S ALL YOU FUCKING SAY! I swear you're like a reverse pokemon. WHO THE FUCK CARES?! He's managed DAMN well on his own, BY HIS OWN CHOICE MIND YOU, he doesnt need you fucking shit up. and how DARE you call him the "real" Luke?! You are fucking LUCKY i'm not part of that game or i'd fucking SMACK your bitch ass SO FUCKING HARD...You are fail, and that is all i have to say about you, you are not worthy of my words.
"Luke Fon Fabre" (quotation marks used to indicate the Replica Luke not that emo pansy Asch.): Stop being a pussy. Seriously. They push you, you push back. you're mother fucking Luke Fon Fabre for Yulia's sake. you can summon a Hyperresonance ALONE, at ANY TIME. They shouldnt be fucking with you. By the way, it wasnt your fault. You were a tool. Van was the hand using the tool. Anyone who blames you for Akzeriuth needs to be shot repeatedly. But seriously. Stop being a pussy. You've got power, you've got skill. You can summon forth an atom smasher in the blink of an eye when you damn well feel like it/Loreli decides to start talking. They should respect you. You were a fucktard at the beginning, but considering you'd not left your house in seven years, you're entitled to it. That is my only complaint. Stop being a pussy.
Tear Grants: You knew as well. Therefore you need to be smacked in the face with an iron pole, violated rectally with said iron pole, then violated orally with said iron pole. Oh, and go fuck Luke. it's obviously you want to ride the bastard. Just make sure to shove one of those random knives of yours up Natalia's cunt before you do. She might think he's Asch and try to rape him or something. Oh and while your at it, do the same with Anise, only make it her asshole. Just for shits and giggles.
And why the HELL are you such a shitty melee fighter in battle when you're like Speedy Gonzales in cutscenes? Really, you should have been a fucking ninja. We need another Sheena Fujibayashi.
Guy: no complaints. you're badass through and through. though one thing, if you touch Noelle i will chop off your dick and feed it to you personally. got it? She, and Arietta are MINE! Though i wont mind sharing Arietta with Master LL...not gonna fuck with that guy, he's too fucking good at those RPGs...
Asch: GO DIE. Oh wait you did.
Nebilim: HOW THE FUCK DO THOSE THINGS STAY ON YOUR CHEST?!
Why is it that there are no RPGs where you get good stuff for being in the moral grey area? Take KOTOR2 for example. If you're grey, you miss out on a very nice chunk of backstory for the Exile, AND EXP, AND loot. Why is it that being true to yourself, and picking whatever option you feel fits you best, nets you nothing in games? all the good stuff comes from being heavily light or dark. it's bullshit. cant i be an asshat to some people, and a veritable savior to others, just out of pure preference and still get awesome stuff? Why the hell is it that i cant access the depths of light AND dark, by being gray and extending my understanding to both? Why do i have to be pure one or the other in order to be powerful? it's stupid, and any game designers or budding game designers that see this, FUCKING CHANGE SHIT.
We of the grey, we who walk the path between light and dark, we deserve recognition too! At least Mass Effect did it right. Kinda. other than achivements and conversation unlocks, being heavily Paragon or Renegade didnt do much exept slight changes in the ending and whatnot. but that's what i'm looking for. the ability to be an intimidating force to some, and a kind soul to others, and STILL GET THE SAME SHIT EITHER WAY. fine, keep your light ending and dark ending, but make a setup for the people who pick the middle!
That is all.
this is a quote from an author on this site: muggledad. he wrote this at the end of his first chapter of Partners, and it struck a chord in me: "Looking at my own life, it seems like it’s all about relationships. My relationship with my wife, my kids, my boss, my co-workers, and so on. Within the context of these relationships, my life happens." These are words that i've been trying to come up with every time i get into an arguement about my life with someone. muggledad has managed to put into words, what i've been feeling since the day i finally understood myself.
