Credit where due, Luke does get way closer to passing when you can't see two-thirds of his face.
Additional note on this point, Luke's dream is slipping further away by the day, because the Japanese aren't letting Americans into the country until some time this fall at the earliest, and even then it won't be more than a small number on business visas. Corona is somewhat ironically saving him from himself, although I doubt he would see it that way.I'm hoping against hope that he scraped together enough money to finish getting all his credentials from the Mormons and go to Japan to teach eikaiwa in the sticks.
If only it were somehow possible to play games without participating in online autism.
The last paragraph is where the gold is buried. I'm pasting it in here because no one's going to read that far. I mean, I didn't read the whole thing either.I completely forgot he had a thread until someone mentioned it as a cow crossover with my favorite cow. At first blush, Luke seems to be a little bit of a better writer than Bob. Submitted for approval of the Rat King Society, I bring you even more The Last of Us 2 sperging.
Daddy issues in overdriveI quickly realized that the intensity of my anger at the first game’s ending was a result of my anger at my father for keeping me in the closet until age 25. I realized I couldn’t let him make decisions for me. I remembered that my mother had told me many times my name at birth would have been “Eleanor,” which was similar to Ellie, and when I chose that name upon deciding to come out of the closet three days after completing The Last of Us, I knew I would probably end up with the nickname Ellie. It seemed like a good symbol at the time. Of course Naughty Dog didn’t intend this, and the ending of The Last of Us has nothing to do with being trans. What I find amazing is that they then went and did a sequel where the character who basically picks up Joel’s mantle literally does defend their kid against transphobia, as the primary arc — what I always wanted, but never got, from my father. In many ways, apart from the tragic decision and lie and its consequences, Joel is the father I wish I had — certainly, almost punching a guy for being homophobic toward Ellie shows that even with his flaws, he’s more ideal in that respect than my own dad.
Haha whoops....people have come together to protest police violence, actually take over part of Seattle without killing anyone...
