To Bring You This Important Message!
You know... I really hate you people sometimes.
No, no... that's too strong. And a lie. How about, I'm really really annoyed at you people sometimes? Yeah, that works better. And do you know why? Because you're all stupid as hell fucking cowards. The whole lot of you. (Except for like... Nightscream and... probably just fucking Nightscream.)
I get flak for a lot of stupid shit I do. Because I do a lot of stupid shit. So I kind of expect that. It comes with the territory. I've been learning to cope with it. But sometimes... sometimes... it just really bothers me when you jump up my ass for being a douchebag when the plain and obvious truth of the matter is... I'm really not.
So what am I talking about now? Well... if you haven't notice it, I might have said some particularly nasty things recently to Hakurei Ryuu. I'm not gonna lie, my words were practically dripping venom, so to be seen as an incredibly high-ranking asshat for that one is kind of the expected response. But because of that, people just assume that I'm some angry raging jackass picking on someone while they're down. But I'm not. In fact, I was pretty chill about the whole thing. I technically even asked for permission first.
And oh hey, look at that! It kind of worked out, huh?
You may all begin apologizing to me at any time. XP
I'm kidding about that by the way... I'm not expecting nor asking for apologies. In fact, I still consider my contribution to the turn around to be minimal at best. All I did was open my mouth and let profanity spill out for a bit. Anyone could have done that....
But no one else did...
And therein lies my Real Problem with this shit.
I don't know what fantasy land some of you are living in where you think all you have to do is throw a few words of love and affection at a person and then everything will turn out fine. To just tell them to keep at it because things are going to get better eventually. Ahh... Bullshit. Things are NOT going to get better. They are going to get continually and exponentially WORSE. You're outright lying to people when you do that. I mean, how many times do you have to have the odds given to you before you stop playing the lottery? Before you realize that your chances of getting out of this scot free are stacked so highly against you you'd have better luck trying to Breath on the Moon.
And hey, you know what? Maybe sometimes that IS what a person needs. Maybe all they need is a little love and a little encouragement and they'll be alright. Maybe sometimes they just need that right nugget of wisdom to guide them on their way and they can pick themselves up and move on. That kind of thing happens. Sometimes people just need a little extra support. So kudos to you for providing that when it's needed.
But sometimes that just isn't enough. Sometimes no amount of love and happiness and uplifting philosophy are going to cut it. Maybe they're just down too low. Maybe they're just not listening anymore. This was one of those times. This was one of those moments where being nice was simply not going to cut it. Someone needed a wake up call. Someone needed to be walked up to and slapped in the face.
And not a single one of you would do that. You either sat there blind to the truth of the matter or you copped out because you didn't have the balls to say something that might upset someone. So I had to step up and do what no one else would. I had to play the asshole and do what needed to be done. So I did it. And I did it knowing full well the consequences that would come of it. Because I've done it before, haven't I? And you know what? I'm fine with that. If there's anything I've learned recently, it's that I can take a beating and walk away from it just fine on the inside.
And that's something you all need to learn I think. Because I'm not always gonna be around to be the asshole. Eventually some of you are gonna have to step up and be a dick to get a point across, and stop being afraid of the backlash you're going to get for it. Sometimes there's just no other way. And that kind of sucks, but it's just one more in a long list of things you're gonna have to deal with.
So, wrapping up, Hakurei, if you're reading, I'm sorry about all that, but it had to be said. Don't make me have to do it again, okay? I still respect you and all that, but you've got to keep it together. Too many people looking up to you in this for you to just fall apart like that. No hard feelings, alright?
