After 377.5 hours, Twitch Plays Pokemon finally got through Victory Road and entered into the Elite 4 tournament of pain. What many feared would take months of work and struggle took a mere two weeks (which is still a pretty insane amount of time). The stream had over 30 MILLION views, with over 70,000 people watching.
The team fell to the ice-trainer (Lorelai) three times. But on the 4th attempt, they defeated her.
The team defeated the fighting-trainer (Bruno) the first try.
The team fell to the ghost-trainer (Agatha) the first try, but came back quickly and took her down for some swift vengeance.
The dragon-trainer (Lance) fought long and hard, but ultimately his Dragonite fell to the All-Terrain Venomoth (thanks to some well-timed poisoning).
shoutout to all the other ex-gifted & talented/honor student/straight a/senior editor/star student/99th percentile/once-creative burn-outs who have, since high school, realized they are truly miniscule fish in a giant, endless ocean, criticized themselves to the point of creative paralysis, and participated in so much self-sabotage they no longer see the point of doing anything at all because they’re just going to ruin it for themselves anyway
this one’s for you
Did you know that Crush is portrayed “high” because Sea Turtles actually eat jellyfish and the poisons inside the jelly doesn’t actually harm the turtle but instead intoxicates them much like marijuana does for humans.
i just thought it was because he was supposed to be a “surfer dude”
do you think somewhere out there, there’s a dusty attic
and in that attic there’s a painting of the first misogynist to call himself an MRA, covered by a sheet
and every time some nerd on the internet is abusive toward women, the person depicted in the painting becomes decayed and withered
because i think that must be the case
i think somewhere out there is the painting of fedorian gray
I’m so done
