Witches Abroad, Terry Pratchett (via n0b0by)
Well, last time I checked I am a person.
In context, “you” is Lily Weatherwax, who is a witch who decided it was a good idea to give everyone happy endings by her definition of happy endings, which is basically uncorrelated with what the people themselves actually want. The statement is, in context, pro-autonomy and anti-cultural-imperialism: ultimately, it is up to the people affected to decide what a better world looks like and how they would like to go about getting it; people who are unaffected can help, but it’s not their job to lead.
There. I took a half an hour and did this to show how easily it could be done. Now someone should take this idea and do it better than me…
“You. You are alive.
and sometimes the player believed the universe had spoken to it through the sunlight that came through the shuffling leaves of the summer trees
and sometimes the player believed the universe had spoken to it through the light that fell from the crisp night sky of winter, where a fleck of light in the corner of the player’s eye might be a star a million times as massive as the sun, boiling its planets to plasma in order to be visible for a moment to the player, walking home at the far side of the universe, suddenly smelling food, almost at the familiar door, about to dream again
and sometimes the player believed the universe had spoken to it through the zeros and ones, through the electricity of the world, through the scrolling words on a screen at the end of a dream
and the universe said I love you
and the universe said you have played the game well
and the universe said everything you need is within you
and the universe said you are stronger than you know
and the universe said you are the daylight
and the universe said you are the night
and the universe said the darkness you fight is within you
and the universe said the light you seek is within you
and the universe said you are not alone
and the universe said you are not separate from every other thing
and the universe said you are the universe tasting itself, talking to itself, reading its own code
and the universe said I love you because you are love.
And the game was over and the player woke up from the dream. And the player began a new dream. And the player dreamed again, dreamed better. And the player was the universe. And the player was love.
You are the player.

Other fandoms be like “you don’t need to have read all the books or seen all the episodes, or have played all the games to be a fan!”
and the KH fandom’s over here just like “No, I haven’t played all the games either, haha! Wait, you’ve read all the mangas?! WAIT THERE’S NOVELS?!”
SEE?! [[they’re here]]
It’s been far too long since I’ve posted an owl, or a dozen.
please stop making comics about the stereotypical jock boy beating up the stereotypical nerd boy and somehow incorporating love. do not write them under posts about physical indicators of soulmates (glowing chests, names on wrists) and better yet, don’t reblog that shit when you see it!
stop living in this weird fantasy world where anyone’s secretly meant to be with their abuser forever. I can’t believe this is a text post I need to make
