I have finally hit my breaking point. For as long as I can remember I have endured my mother’s abuse, whether it is verbal, emotional, or as seen here physical. I can expect some act of violence on a daily basis, and her beating me is not an usual occurrence, but today something snapped. My mother did this unprovoked, and this time she didn’t stop. Usually it’s bad for a little while and then she’s done, today it went on for what seemed like forever. At a certain point I decided I was going to do something I never do, call the police. You see, my mother is a highly respected and very well known person where I live. She is on the board of ed, worked for CPS for many years, and is close personal friends with people like the local chief of police, director of our local CPS unit, and so on. I always knew that calling wouldn’t go anywhere and just upset her more, but today I had to try. While she was kicking me I found my opportunity, and somehow managed to get away from someone more than twice my size. I ran as fast as I could, knocking things over behind my, trying to find a phone. I dialed and they listened and my mother proceeding to beat me over it, while I screamed for help. For the second time today, I managed to get away from her and ran to my room. I barely had enough time to lock my door, before she starting trying to get it, to the point that she ripped my door off the frame. I decided I was going to stay locked in there, until the police came. The past few months I have been collecting evidence against her, voice recordings, pictures like these, and videos of her violence, so they couldn’t dispute what was going on. But I was dead wrong.
When the officer finally came up to my room, I attempted to tell him my side of the story, but before I could get a sentence out he silenced me. HE told me that this was my mothers house, and I needed to live by her rules. If I didn’t she had the right to punish me. He also told me to be tankful for her, because he wanted to press assault charges against me. finally, he refused, despite my begging, for him to take me to a shelter for teens.
I am utterly disgusted by the injustice that occurred today. I pray there is no one else out there who is living in such a situation. I am not sure exactly what I am getting out of writing this, except maybe that it’s just nice to be able to open up about this, when I have had to keep it a secret my whole life. idk. sorry for posting such heavy shit.
Signal boost the fuck out of this
And this is why I keep saying too many parents shouldn’t be parents and that there needs to be much, much more action/support by authorities, neighbors, whoever in doing something about it.. cause otherwise parents will keep doing it and nothing is gonna change for these or future generations of kids and teens.
So yeah, signal boost this so much, everyone… Frankly, this is the kinda stuff I should be seeing petitions for (but I’m not). It’s like the people in charge are either willfully ignorant or just fucking blind. You can’t look at those pictures and not tell me this girl is being physical abused, and if you do I’m gonna call you a fucking liar.
Whose idea was this
All I could think of during that scene was Kermit the Frog, cause I’d literally seen him do that last expressions dozens of times growing up.
GIA: Are you ever worried that Square will become too heavily dependent on the Final Fantasy name?
HS: Avoiding that has actually been one of Square’s goals for a long time. It is our aim to try and develop a few more major franchises for the company; that has always been on our minds.
On October 4th, 2001.. the Gaming Intelligence Agency interviewed Hironobu Sakahuchi and this is one of the things he said.
…and yet, over 11 years later, Square Enix is still milking the franchise for every last sent, and most of their other IPs lay discarded or underutilized. They’ve acquired some outside IPs such as Tomb Raider but I don’t think that really counts… and even if it did, that’s one series. They even gained the great Legacy of Kain IP and did nothing with it.
Meanwhile, Parasite Eve, Seiken Densetsu, Chrono, and other beloved titles lay mostly forgotten by the company. On the rare occasion one sees the light of day, it’s quality is a far cry from what made the older games great and, in the case of The Third Birthday, was practically spitting in the eyes of fans.
Their own mishandling of Xenogears essentially led to the death of that IP, and instead of allowing Ivalice to branch away with Vagrant Story they sucked it back into Final Fantasy with XII.
I can’t help but feel sad thinking about that even when their games aren’t actually FF-related, such as Bravely Default, it still kinda feels more like a gaiden or sub-series rather than a totally new thing.
IS THAT A GIF IN A GIF IN A GIF
Next up are enigmatic screens of Mega Man Legends 2. Not prototype shots precisely, but… look I’ve been having fun posting these kinds of photos, so can I just get away with these this time?
Hyrule Warriors just makes me want Persona Warriors. It would work so well. Armies of shadows, red shadow Generals and Outpost Captains, Persona attacks as special moves, and a selection of awesome characters to play as from across all four games.
I didn’t know I wanted this until now.
This reminds me of several game ideas I had over the 2000s, honestly.
i like this one
For a second I was expecting something different and was really enraged
fucking bless whoever made this
