Yooo gabby here! Lil to know about the blog- I normally reblog art/fanart, animals, music, puns, Portal <3, Pacific rim, Pokemon, Sherlock, hobbit, Doctor who, and more stuff I like whoops that's really specific: multifandom blog here basically, portal being the main thing. When I say reblog i mean queue, so things go by slowly but constant here, about 15 posts a day. Art tag is "gabs109" (better to just glance at my deviantart if you wanna see that). Text tag is 'gabbering'. Homestuck is on another blog, shown on the left! Commissions are open, details are in a link in my FAQ (among other random things). Feel free to send a message!
Depression Quest is an interactive fiction game where you play as someone living with depression. You are given a series of everyday life events and have to attempt to manage your illness, relationships, job, and possible treatment. This game aims to show other sufferers of depression that they are not alone in their feelings, and to illustrate to people who may not understand the illness the depths of what it can do to people.
I’m playing this right now, and as someone that’s currently working through dealing with depression this is a very accurate representation of how I’ve felt and some scenarios I’ve been in. The goal of the game is to raise awareness of depression and how it affects people, so if you or friends/family suffer from depression I highly suggest playing this. It really gives you an idea of why those with depression act as they do, and that it’s not always by choice.
It covers things like people saying “just go out with people more, you’ll feel better”, or “just work harder and push through” and other common things that are said to people with depression.
i just played this game and i’m not one for adding captions but it!!! really said a lot about depression and wow i cant remember the last time i related with something so well???? but yeah if you wanna understand depression more or just have some catharsis, i definitely recommend it!!!!
Have you ever met someone on the internet that you liked so much that you sometimes sit there and think “Oh man there are people who are lucky enough to see this person IN THE FLESH ON A REGULAR BASIS and I wonder if they realize how LUCKY they are”
The top photo is of a dear friend of mine who was the victim of a very vicious assault by her boyfriend. She had just moved in with him and they had gotten into a very typical argument as normal couples do. At some point during the argument the asshole, who’s name is Chris Young, pictured below her started to assault her to the point where she was admitted to the hospital with facial fractures and now requires surgery on Monday. This terrible excuse of a human being now has a restraining order against him as well as a felony warrant out for his arrest in Tucson, Arizona. It has been rumored that he could possibly be in New Mexico or Texas at this point. Mind you that this is a photo taken a WEEK after the assault happened to her. The fact that he has evaded arrest and prosecution this long is completely wrong to me. I would very much like to see this individual facing jail time for a long time. If you want to help me get this scumbag off the streets for good so he can never do something like this to anyone ever again please reblog this to help me.
One hand on this wily comet Take a drink just to give me some weight Some überman I’d make I’m barely a vapor
They shone a chlorine light on A host of individual sins Let’s carve my aging face off Fetch us a knife Start with my eyes Down so the lines form a grimacing smile
Close your eyes to corral a virtue Is this fooling anyone else? Never worked so long and hard to cement a failure
We can blow on our thumbs and posture But the lonely are such delicate things The wind from a wasp could blow them into the sea With stones on their feet Lost to the light and the loving we need
Still to come The worst part and you know it There is a numbness In your heart and it’s growing
With burnt sage and a forest of bygones I click my heels, get the devils in line A list of things I could lay the blame on Might give me a way out
But with each turn it stays front and center Like a dart stuck square in your eye Every post you can hitch your faith on Is a pie in the sky Chock full of lies A tool we devise to make sinking stones fly
And still to come The worst part and you know it There is a numbness In your heart and it’s growing
