current mood: james giggling madly with magikarp
I never thought this sound would be represented in letters.
Splash is now super effective.
((And this concludes our impromptu Magikarp theme day))
One level can make a really big difference.
that’s somehow really inspirational
"I know it’s hard for you to keep going with how things are, but just hang in there; you’ll get past this and become stronger — and I’ll help you get there!"
I normally wouldn’t use this sort of thing as a comparison illustration, but I feel like it might relate to how you feel judging by some things you’ve told me lately.
Everyone makes fun of Magikarp. He’s useless, slow, “stupid” looking, and overall he’s a pain in the arse to level up into something cool and worthwhile.
Right now, you might feel like a Magikarp. You might feel useless, slow, and dumb; and you might feel even worse because things don’t seem to get better no matter how hard you try. You get sick or your body changes or you just feel terrible.
Don’t worry too much! You might not be able to go forward alone, but you don’t have to be alone. I’m here with you, and I will help you go through your life until you’re at a point where you can help yourself and help others as well. You don’t have to be stuck in a stage where you think of yourself as useless anymore.
I know that sometimes, even if you aren’t able to do much in the present, if you continue to work hard and learn and do your best, you will be able to do absolutely amazing things in the future. One day, the potential that I see now will evolve into actual skill and ability, so please don’t give up! I have faith in who you are and in who you will be.
Behold his Majesty—giant Shinykarp! He is 3 feet long.
