and I’m equal parts angry and fearful
alright so I LOVE barney as most people know (nearly all of my sfm artwork features him for a reason) but I’ll never understand the flirty cowboy characterization as he was never like that in the games at all (his accent is even just slightly southern)
this man I just I just
you know what he is? he’s just some guy, he’s the epitome of just some guy, but he’s also a sarcastic asshole, he’s also a college guy loser, he’s also bearer of the curse
he’s also always tired (have you seen the eyebags on his model? this man needs a nap) and never has time to deal with everybody’s bullshit but has to anyway
but moving on from that side of his character he’s also a very good combat leader, he leads a good chunk of the whole resistance, it must be a lot of weight on his shoulders since he’s still just a random guy who got randomly chosen for this job
even if he’s sarcastic and stuff sometimes there’s still a kind side to his character, especially considering stuff like kleiners beta voiceline that implies barney would often take citizens with him to get them out of trouble, as well as barney nearly sacrificing himself when gordon got stuck in the whole teleporter stuff in hl2, even in some of his beta voicelines he showed even more genuine joy when he saw gordon again, especially the scrapped early version of the meetup scene which is shown here
even though it’s from the hl2 beta where his character was a little different, I think it’s relevant enough
barney is a neat balance between sarcastic exhausted loser and kind and nice just wants to help people guy, which is what I like about his character, he’s clearly shown to just be tired and done with everything, but also worried and wants to be sure things go alright
he’s been through a LOT and I think he deserves a nap, he really needs one, he’s also in his 40s so mid life crisis time in the middle of an alien invasion, cut this man some slack
it’s late at night and I’m rambling a lot here now but my god this man he’s one of the men ever
I went into this post thinking I was reading about a um… different Barney. It had thrown me for a loop by the second sentence
I do so love sassy article titles, yessir
you ever listen to a song with just one ear in? it’s freaking weird.
I don’t get racist people. Like, you got a problem with a certain type of person? Why

hold on a fucking second. delaware is a state?? i thought it was a river? or is the river more important than the state? why don't i know this? (i should mention i don't like in america, i'm just confused)
there is delaware (state) and delaware (river)
both are equally strange
the state is a tiny little cryptid thing
the rive is a monster that spans new york, pennsylvania, new jersey and delaware. also washington crossed it once and that was like kinda a big deal i guess. like crossing the rubicon in rome.
the state tries to me more important with its “im the first state!!!” bs (seriously its even on the fucking license plates) but we all know. its the river.
It really do be like that
Horrified and confused
Worth a watch, themes addressing exploitative labor and the human condition. Highly recommend it
I had to say it
Or do other people just *not feel like* seeing somebody in an unfamiliar setting?
sign up for the gold package of ADHD today and experience the following moods:
The Loop - opening and closing the same three websites in succession for 15 minutes at a time before realizing that there’s not going to be anything new or worth doing on those websites (my three are Tumblr, Youtube and Wikipedia)
The Ack - seeing you have a new message and, though you have no evidence that it’s anything even remotely noteworthy let alone negative, feel intense dread and procrastinate looking at the message for 30 minutes/5 hours/a week
The Shimmy - changing sitting/laying positions every 5 minutes because god dammit i’m not going to be able to focus on whatever task i need to do if I feel any unwelcome physical sensation
The Ol’ Razzle Dazzle - making a hot beverage for yourself and then putting it down slightly out of reach and then not drinking it until 45 minutes later when it has already gone cold
The Bellwether - scrolling on Tumblr and getting the urge to google something/look up something on Wikipedia, but you keep scrolling and forget what you wanted to look up so you frantically scroll back to the thing that prompted you to think about looking the other (un)related thing up in the first place
The Bop - earnestly insisting that you’re not anxious because the other person sees your leg bouncing and thinks that you’re about to go postal
The Poison Dart - hearing someone say something problematic out loud and freezing because, while you want to correct them gently, you also feel intense dread and RSD that if you even so much as suggest dissent the person will immediately and commensurately stab you to death or snap their fingers and open a trapdoor to hell beneath you
The Ghost Breath - realizing you haven’t texted your friend back/at all/in 3 weeks and thinking “Hmmm, I need to do that” and then you don’t do it and much more time passes by
The Stim Package - eating an entire family-sized bag of chips in one sitting because having something to chew on helped you concentrate, at least a little
The Bullfrog - going to get something that you don’t use often but you know exactly where it is and then it’s not there and you just keep going back to that spot 5 more times before realizing you lost it or it’s somewhere else completely different (like, not even in the same building)
The Morning Mist - regularly forgetting what recent life events actually happened and which ones were from extremely vivid dreams
The Seesaw Rivet - feeling like a wounded child who is about to get in trouble during every interaction you have even as you are entering your mid-to-late-20s and genuinely wondering when that pattern is ever going to stop if ever
The Pull-Apart Muffin - having ADHD and about 3 other diagnoses and wondering what is even what anymore
Oh shit it’s me.
All right, fess up. Who’s been watching me closer than I’ve been watching myself
Trying to understand people by placing yourself in their shoes is empathy?

One of my friends had to read a page-long narrative written by me out loud to the group, but she couldn’t get past the first line:
“Like what you see?” Barbara posed in front of the door.
“Barbara, you know I’m blind.” Fred sighed.
I miss the days when “invigorating” facial scrubs actually invigorated me

The LEGO movie feels like a bunch of celebrities came together in a studio and did a real-time fandub of the original movie and the director liked the dub more
