I’m melting
It’s 92 degrees outside...

In April.
I attempted the Last Wish last night. Keyword: attempted. We got to the Shuro or whatever in under an hour and I thought this was going to be as quick as the leviathan that I used to do with my old clan (an about 45 minutes with a flawless run).

However, this was not the case. I don’t play the game as much as I want to, so I’m still only light level 580 without a lot of the useful exotics. I’m super squishy, but super fast (as a hunter running celestial nighthawk).
4 hours of constant grind- over and over again. We made it to the last encounter every time, but I didn’t have my golden gun charged so I couldn’t do the DPS with the celestial nighthawk that I needed to do and we wiped. It’s 12:45, and I say “okay, last round, and then I’m getting off”. Ohhhhh... boy.
We get through the first puzzle room with a minute and a half to spare- second puzzle room, with only 12 seconds.
We rush through the 2 dps’s to the last damage phase, and FINALLY, I have golden gun charged right off the bat. The spawn crystals, and WE’RE FINALLY going to get to the next checkpoint.

Until 14 thrall start gangbanging my from all directions. The ad clearer didn’t do his job. I hit critically low health, jump up and throw a grenade: but it’s not enough- I forgot that the hunter scatter grenades are actual trash for crowd control. There are 8 still left, all waiting for me to land, hungry for the taste of my dead ass.
I start squealing like a dying pig as I hit the ground and start spamming the Wish Bringer.

It wasn’t enough.

They could smell my satisfaction and confidence and got strengthened by it- they craved it.
I died.
Everyone else throws everything they’ve got at it- but without that 600,000 extra damage in one shot,they couldn’t do it. We all wipe, and the “the darkness has consumed you” screen pops up.

The 6 people in the party were dead silent. We spawn back in at the main doors, and the silence has dragged on. With a quick whispered “good night” I hold down the home button and power down my PS4.

For a full hour last night, I stared up at the ceiling and pondered what could have been, and what it would have looked like if we had gotten it right.
And finally...
The idea of a role swap found its way into his head. He finally realized- and he was filled with curiosity, satisfaction, and confusion. “What a strange thing to ponder- the roles of the two being switched. I do wonder where this path may lead.” He thought.

I’m starting a new personal project (story), so send me a message through smack jeeves or email me if you’re interested in reading what I have thus far (which is very little) and I will send you the link to the google doc.

Back to your regularly scheduled comments:
@Textualfish: trying not to be too “inspirational speech”-y
@Rjcmanus (New hunter vanguard): I’m a journalist, and I can verify, those are just people pretending to be journalists, that make us real journalists ashamed of our career (or in my case, a possible future career.) Media isn’t always... that, and hopefully when our (well, my) generation steps up to the plate, we can change the direction of modern media.
So uh...
Loincloths are coming back into style, eh?
It does look like that, doesn’t it?
@Rjcmanus (New hunter vanguard): we ended up getting 12th.

Out of 15. But I was playing in percussion which got second overall, so I guess it was worth it. And most of it was really fun- creating music, memories, and friends.
Eew. That sounds like an ad for band.
My birthday Is on a Tuesday. The second most disgusting day is the week- and with marching band, the most disgusting day.

I don’t miss 5am rehearsals.
Dear god...
@Rjcmanus (New hunter vanguard): what have I become...?
How did a bad joke formatted about lasagna turn into a 90 page story?

Why do I exist?
So about that drawing tablet...?

You got any recommendations?
@Rjcmanus (New hunter vanguard):

Bonjour! Comment ça-va? (Je prends le Français à l’école. Mais l'espagnol serait probablement mieux.)
@Arcstrider Exo: wait! What was the first one?

I was in the middle of the ocean!
@Textualfish: it’s very hot here.

And mountainous

@lazesummerstone: Preferably one that connects, possibly by a USB, but either is fine.
