I know the feeling. Eating ice cream sends me straight to the toilet afterwards. Not milk, not cheese, nothing like that. Just ice cream...

Joy: I finished Undertale. Cannot begin to explain how good a game that was. Had me reacting to it more than most other games. Lots more cheers and jeers. Such a good game. Got that TP run. So good. And not by coincidence at all, my new profile picture is of the annoying dog, from a fan comic of the game.

Hi tsMKG and anyone else who may have epileptic seizures!

You can turn off all images and flashing images on this forum. I don't know if you have a total restriction on computers and digital screens, but the forum will be pretty much all text with the blue overlay after you take the following steps:

Go to the top of any HP! forum page and click: User Control Panel -> Board Preferences -> Edit display options.

Then you can turn off images within posts, flash animations, smilies as images, signatures, and avatars. Literally the only image that will display is the HP! logo at the top of the webpage.

You must be logged into the forum for these preferences to have any affect on your HP browsing sessions. If you are logged out, flashing images will still display.

I turned all of this off when I joined 5 years ago. I do not have epileptic seizures, but I had dial-up internet for a very long time and this made the HP! forum load way faster! I hope you are doing okay, and I hope this helps you remain comfortable here on HP!

This week for me has been rather full of sorrows, so much that I feel emotionally and physically drained atm. I don't feel like talking about them, but I hope next week would be a bit better at least

Yeah, I am getting better this week, thankfully. Thanks for the best wishes :3 Though...

Slight sorrow: I just got to learn of a plot resolution about a Housepets comic arc by reading the wiki, and that made me read it back up again for a bit. See, while I still come here to the forums and drew a few fanarts here and there, I actually have stopped reading the comic entirely for... up to 2 years now? Back then, I was reeeeally obsessed with the characters, each and every one of them, and ideas for stories and fanarts for them have been filling my head ever since 2011. Sad thing is, almost all of these ideas are sad ones, or even tragic and downright mean AUs, and I just couldn't stop thinking of these headcanons that they start to pervade my daily life and thoughts. I also felt guilty, because back then my depression was worse and I was projecting my sadness and negative outlook in life on these characters, thus making me think of these sad things more and making things worse. That's one reason I just stopped cold turkey 2 years ago.

Getting that spoiler-ish info is bringing back those memories, and immediately a new AU story idea formed in my head, and a rather sad one at that. I could just type it out and get it over with, but I don't really know what happened exactly to these characters in the 2 years I've stopped reading, and a good key to a great fanfic is you need to know your source material thoroughly. I still don't feel like reading the comic again because I was afraid I might be brought back to those troubled times.

Slight joy: Still, I am glad this quirk of mine is not as bad as it once was, and with a few hilarious videos, I got out of another potential depression hole and feel okay. I also like the fact that I was able to think out a somewhat solid story for this character's AU in just half an hour, and that I can just write it out in one sitting if I chose to. Looks like all these years RPing in the RP thread had paid off a bit :3

I don't know. The one fanfiction for this comic that I have actually finished was particularly sad because I was in a very frustrated and depressed state of mind. It helped me work through the feelings and come out more at peace. I don't know if that sort of thing works for everyone, but it was very useful to me.

Joy: Family coming up! :D
Panic: The cleaning that must still be done!!! :o

I kinda know how that feels. I haven't read the comic around almost the same time and I've made some rather sad AUs and fanfics of some of the characters, but I haven't really written any of them so...

Sorrow: I feel tired today. Went home hoping I could take a nap but nope, older sister didn't do some chores before leaving the house, so I had to do some of them. I guess I'm partly to blame for being in such a bad mood...

I thought the same thing too yesterday. I was wrong. Then again, I went to bed a little too late that night so... that might have been my fault.

A little Joy: Had a quick (1 hour) nap. Still feel tired, but I hate the world a little less now. (Translation: Slightly better mood)

Joy: I have more free time to post again!
Sorrow; I have to move after having our home invaded. Also someone broke our door down and tried to get in. No one was hurt, which is very fortunate because I went right after the man to force him out.... in the heat of the moment I didn't even think about the risk.
Sorrow: Said break in has me jumpy and worried, nightmares and stuff, still a bit shaken but doing okay.
Joy: I no longer work at Walmart (this is a very big joy because I was always busy with an inconsistent schedule.) I now work at a job with a little more security and enough pay that I can in theory go back to being on my own instead of the current living situation. So good things all around.

Oh man, dude... A break in is probably one of the most messed up things that can happen to the person.

Do at least feel proud that you were the one to defuse the situation.

A tad proud sure. But ultimately its not something I want to be proud of, because that situation should never happen again. But its good to know what will happen if I must protect people I love.
