Like, seriously, how did he ever live to be that old? I know he got that 1up, but that's not good enough! He'd need at least one hundred of them if he always died at that rate, and if not, then why was he living in such long spans of time and why did that change in the first place?
I guess they could say he lived like fifty years in-between seasons when he was companion-less, but... Dude, it takes you that long to be angsty? Yikes.

Don't expect for them to come to you with their problems.
Be open, be chill, and don't try to solve every single problem or try to dominate them by saying "you shouldn't feel that way."
Be approachable, stop being so judgemental, stop playing those stupid "I'm smarter and you're an idiot" games. Don't carry an air of superiority.
Consider others' feelings seriously. Don't write them off as "oh, they're just being like..." or whatever.
It's different for everyone, but those were the things preventing me from talking with a lot of people, including my own family, about my condition. I did have people I did talk to, and I'm doing fine now, but I feel like only telling the people with depression to "talk to someone" is only half of the issue sometimes. It can be a lot harder than you think.
Be someone worth talking to.
Whew, this was really fun to write! It's been a while since I've attempted a BIONICLE story, but I hope it's at least enjoyable.
This is the second short story addition for Volition. We started it off with A Destiny Chosen. We have more stories in the works, so hopefully we'll continue getting them out in a timely manner.

MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD so I'll be putting them in spoiler tags. Normally I'm just vague about the subjects, but this is serious business.

To be clear on this point: I have yet to play the first Portal game.
Oh. My. Yes.
Everything I wanted out of a game and more.
The puzzles were clever, the antagonists fitting and fulfilling, the entire situation completely messed up beyond all belief and it had the most dubious of endings which made me laugh endlessly.
I really need to play the first game. It should be noted that I only played the second first because my brother and I found it for $20 at Best Buy. He played the first game, and it was a relatively low price, so we nabbed it.
Would recommend to anyone who loves a fun, quick story and interesting puzzles. (If you like Professor Layton, you will like this game).
Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to listen to "Now I Only Want You Gone."
GET OFF MY LAWN!
But I am now through all 25 episodes of After Story. Done. I managed not to cry despite coming really close.
Overall thoughts? This was quite possibly the best love story I have experienced thus far. I have a few reservations about that opinion mostly because of the surrealism in the end (or rather throughout, technically?) However, everything up to that point was amazing. Great characters, relatable situations and endless rivers of tears. Yeah, this was an experience, and wow was it worth it.
Totally recommend this anime to anyone who appreciates a good story.
But what I liked about After Story was that it took place outside of highschool for the characters. I don't actually think I've seen that before in anime, and this show actually captures a side of life that adult stories fail to do. Really, this is the first show I've ever seen that has the protagonist grow up, find a job, and deal with difficult choices and growing up quickly that actually felt genuine and logical. If I were in Tomoya's shoes, I probably would have made similar, if not, the same decisions he did. Every decision felt like it was carefully thought over for the characters to make. Akio and Sanae especially seemed seasoned in making tough choices (which fits perfectly with their characters). The scene where Sanae and Akio talk after Tomoya decides to take in Ushio? Priceless.
It's just... everything about this show's main story felt like it was well-made. It's good, plain and simple; the kind of story I love.
That being said, I do think certain episodes, such as Kyo's story, was a bit forced, maybe? Like, I could see how Tomoya could end up with Tomoyo because she used to be a delinquent similar to him, but she also worked with him to help him grow as a person. Nagisa did that too by taking his feelings seriously and pushing him to talk with his dad or talk about his plans for the future (It's why they're my OTP in this show, because they work together. Heck, he does the same for her with her self-confidence). With Kyo's story, I really didn't sense any of that going on. It didn't feel like a relationship so much as a cliche'd love triangle (rectangle if you include Sunohara. =P).
Now then, as for the very last episode of After Story: I liked it.
I mean, I keep hearing it's frustrating or bad or what have you, but... Well, I don't get that opinion. It was a summary episode, and I always look at those as a nice look-back to the story as a whole. They chose a nice theme to work around too, and the ending of that left me with "D'aww... You know you scarred me for life with the rest of this story, right? =D"
I mean, if you're actually talking about the ending of the main story, then I guess I can see where you're coming from, maybe? It was a weird way to get to the ending, and despite the happy I was still going through rehab due to the enormous amount of grief the show had just put me through so I wasn't getting into the happy... But it could have ended worse.
Obligatory: FUKO, YEEEEEES!
Anyway, the few nit-picks aside, this story was completely worth it. I'll probably watch it again someday (and cry forever).
GET OFF MY LAWN!
The fact that (WHYWHYWHYWHYWHY) the series actually follows the characters (THIS IS PURE SADNESS) after highschool, and showing the protagonist (DESPAIR WINS, MONOBEAR WAS RIGHT) grow and get a job is really cool. I wish more stories in general could show this side of life (TAKE THAT BACK, IT'S NOT WORTH IT) because it's actually really interesting (AND FILLED WITH SORROW).
Yeah, I can't do it.
This is bad. This is very not-good. I'm through episode eighteen now, and while the ending of this episode was sweet, it was still extremely feelsy. I nearly cried three times over the span of a couple of episodes. This is a new record for any story I've ever followed. The mist could not leave my eyes, and everything was spoiled for me up to this point, it was that bad.
The worst part? I'm not even at the saddest part of this anime yet AND THE ENDING THEME STILL DOES NOT FLOW WITH THE STORY AT ALL (thought I mentioned that?)
I... I dunno if I'm gonna make it, guys... Save yourselves.
(Obligatory yelling at kids or whatever...
That one is my stamp.

Ah, yes. "Hello, I'm calling on behalf of someone on the internet who says she didn't get her Delorean. No, I dont actually KNOW her, per se, or have proof she didn't get it, but she hates phone calls so this is a completely viable alternative."
Most people think puzzle games through and figure them out through intelligence and wit.
I just smash the square peg into the round hole until it breaks the hole big enough to go in.
Tekulo is the supreme overlord of lameness and illusory instigation and is far inferior to the illustrious and estimable Nuile, esquire, who is so awesome that a mere glimpse of his debonair, dashing handsomeness and general coolness blinds and in some cases melts eyeballs (note that I am not liable for any injuries acquired through staring at me) and is tall and eminent.

Hello! Today it occured to me that I chat with a handful of staff members both on and off the site. this also made me realize they report directly to you. Whatever gossip they have spread about me behind my back, I assure you, is the truth (unless it isn't).
