so how about a pokemon game where you play as a kid going into team rocket because his parents are high ranking rocketeers or whatever and you have to steal your starter and you slowly start to realize that team rocket is not cool so then you destroy them from the inside
that’d be a damn good game
Step 300: Do not vulture on other people’s relationships
Friend who recently broke up with his boyfriend: Ugh. This guy keeps texting me. The whole time (ex-boyfriend) and I were together, he’d always be showing up and dropping hints, and now that I’m single it’s twice a day.
Boyfriend Dave: Oh man. He was VULTURIN’!
It’s not exactly great karma, but you are more than welcome to wish and hope and pray and cast voodoo spells against a relationship that contains someone you would really like to be with.
You can even — one time — make it clear to that person that you are into them, and if they should find themselves single, you hope you’re the first to know. Don’t touch them while you do this, because the point here is not to tempt them into cheating. You make yourself clear and hope that they extricate themselves from something that they maybe weren’t that into to begin with. After you’ve said it one time, you drop it and never speak of it again until/unless they are single.
You should not, however, be constantly pinging this person with texts and veiled invites and wheedling. Let that relationship die in peace, or thrive. It does not need you circling endlessly overhead, your creepy bald head glistening in the sunlight, your acute sense of smell picking up every sign of impending doom.
I wouldn’t even make it clear I’m into someone who’s in a relationship — they’re in a relationship. Seems like a pretty shitty thing to do even once.
(But then, IDK, maybe I’m abnormal or something, I also think it’s pretty shitty even just to hope someone in a relationship ends up out of it just so you can snap them up. It reeks of “my happiness is more important than yours”. Obviously this doesn’t count for unhealthy/unhappy relationships when you’re just hoping they do what’s best for them.)
why does nobody ever talk about the media’s fetishization of lesbianism like why do people only get mad when gay dudes get fetishized
