What an excellent question! Thank you! <3 Let’s see… I’ll do this in list format since there’s many babies and all. 8I

Flesh: “I spend so much time alone that I talk to inanimate objects as if they are friends. I cannot trust real people.”
Bear: “Everyone makes me angry. Even the people I love.”
Nexus: “I want to destroy the people who destroyed me.”
Eian: “Despite all the love in my life, I still feel so alone. What’s wrong with me?”
Terron: “They think I’m better. I must be doing a good job pretending to be happy.”
Vuurziel: “I’m so tired. I can’t let them know. They need me to be strong. How much longer can I last?”
Ra: “Ra feel tightness, tightness, here in chest. Never goes away, never goes away, never goes away…”
Nail: “Am I enough, truly? Is she really happy with me? Do I do enough for her, do I satisfy all that she desires from me?”
Colin: “The role I have taken is my only purpose. There is nothing else worthwhile about me. I am only a toy. How long before I wear out my use?”
Mamnon: “Why did you betray me? I hate you. I love you. I loved you all along.”
Gaarnos: “I would give anything to go back and never have met her. I have only brought suffering to her and her family.”
Onech: “Where are the angels to come and take my life away? Please, someone do what I cannot.”
Sackbaby: “There is an entire world out there that I will never see. I had the chance… and I threw it away. How do I stop being so scared?”
Genesis: “I must not grow too fond of them. There is a day on the horizon in which I will be but energy among the cosmos. Their hearts are already broken; I cannot break them further. Resist… resist… do not love… they cannot afford the loss, and I cannot afford never holding them again…”
Anathema: “I know you are out there, hidden in a golden shell. I know you are waiting, terrified of the day. I can smell your fear, I can taste your sadness… but for all you know of the future, all you know of these creatures you covet, you do not know how much I long for our conflict. Destroy me. End me. Please, of all you have denied me, deny me life.”
Dollface (new character, not shared yet, but MAYBE THIS BUILDS HYPE OOOH): “Hurt me. Please hurt me. Help me justify the pain. Help me validate my rage. Give me a reason for my suffering. Make sense of what I can’t. Please, bruise me, batter me, leave me black and blue. I need the answer… I need your answer. I need your fist against my face, I need your cock shoved down my throat. Choke me. Beat me. Make me your plaything; your doll. Anything to give reason for the tears I shed without you.”

I think one thing you can do to help your friends who are depressed is to reach out to them not in the spirit of helping, but in the spirit of liking them and wanting their company. “I’m here to help if you ever need me” is good to know, but hard to act on, especially when you’re in a dark place. Specific, ongoing, pleasure-based invitations are much easier to absorb. “I’m here. Let’s go to the movies. Or stay in and order takeout and watch some dumb TV.” “I’m having a party, it would be really great if you could come for a little while.” Ask them for help with things you know they are good at and like doing, so there is reciprocity and a way for them to contribute. “Will you come over Sunday and help me clear my closet of unfashionable and unflattering items? I trust your eye.” “Will you read this story I wrote and help me fix the dialogue?” “Want to make dinner together? You chop, I’ll assemble.” “I am going glasses shopping and I need another set of eyes.” Remind yourself why you like this person, and in the process, remind them that they are likable and worth your time and interest.

Talk to the parts of the person that aren’t being eaten by the depression. Make it as easy as possible to make and keep plans, if you have the emotional resources to be the initiator and to meet your friends a little more than halfway. If the person turns down a bunch of invitations in a row because (presumably) they don’t have the energy to be social, respect their autonomy by giving it a month or two and then try again. Keep the invitations simple; “Any chance we could have breakfast Saturday?” > “ARE YOU AVOIDING ME BECAUSE YOU’RE DEPRESSED OR BECAUSE YOU HATE ME I AM ONLY TRYING TO HELP YOU.” “I miss you and I want to see you” > “I’m worried about you.” A depressed person is going to have a shame spiral about how their shame is making them avoid you and how that’s giving them more shame, which is making them avoid you no matter what you do. No need for you to call attention to it. Just keep asking. “I want to see you” “Let’s do this thing.” “If you are feeling low, I understand, and I don’t want to impose on you, but I miss your face. Please come have coffee with me.” “Apology accepted. ApologIES accepted. So. Gelato and Outlander?”

P.S. A lot of people with depression and other mental illnesses have trouble making decisions or choosing from a bunch of different options. “Wanna get dinner at that pizza place on Tuesday night?” is a LOT easier to answer than “So wanna hang out sometime? What do you want to do?”

temporis-oblitum replied to your post:Hey! In this post post/96330883803 , have you seen this movie? It’s a French movie called Amelie and it’s really cute! Amelie gets all these people hooked up and helps them find things from their past and it’s a pretty good movie. ;v; It’s all in French though, so if you ever decide to watch it, find some subs!

I also realize and understand you’re an adult and can handle yourself, I want to let you know that there’s quite a bit of sex in it. One of my favorite scenes involves her counting orgasms though so I mean… yeah. >3>;;

WELL THEN, ALL THE MORE REASON TO WATCH IT 8B

I have not! Thank you for telling me what it is, I should hunt it down and give it a watch. :D

You are really good at naming your monsters! I just noticed that Nexus actually means "A link between two or more things that are clearly opposite" while Nexus got both Regressor and Agressor form (I think that's what it's called?). You sure put a lot of research into it. ^w^

Okay secret time. I only sometimes name my characters some metaphorical or symbolic name, but when I do, I admit that I really hope that someone will notice the significance. There’s a lot of little hidden “easter eggs,” so to speak. You got the definition half right - ‘nexus’ means several things: a connection or series of connections linking two or more things., a connected group or series, and the central and most important point or place. There’s also biology stuffs. With all that said and Regressor and the Aggressor in mind, the significance of Nexus’ name is obvious.

Even if you got it half right, WHO THE FUCK CARES! YOU NOTICED THIS AT ALL AND ADSLKFJDSLKFJGDS lkjdslkjfgl AHHHH THANK YOU <3

I didn’t actually do much research, though. The word just popped in my head and worked out so well that it just stayed. :B

I am sorry I dreamed of Parable and Genesis banging last night.

WHAT don’t apologize. 8I That’s mega hot, yes yes yeeeesssss. You must be channeling Menace’s thoughts because they’ve been drawing a lot of exactly that lately. DO YOU GET TO SEE? DOES ANYONE GET TO SEE? THE QUESTION OF THE CENTURY.

bim bam boo, what's up with you? How're you today? ♥

ANGRY AS HELL. LOOK AT THIS. THIS IS BULLSHIT. FUCK I CAN’T TAKE THIS SHIT. I SEE HOW IT IS DONE BUT FUCK HOW IS IT DONE!?MOTHERFUCKING WITCHCRAFT, THAT’S HOW.

I AM EXCITED FOR TOMORROW BECAUSE NEW PILLOW
