a very scary story, obvs
I had a friend once, who after burying his grandfather went home to grieve alone. While sitting at home, watching television, he heard a knock at the door. When he opened it, there was his grandfather's coffin. He naturally panicked and slammed the door, but soon he could hear the coffin banging, banging, banging--until finally, the door gave way.
@izzy I am Old™️ so I remember this being a huge (and, uh, very grim) pop culture meme in the, like, late 80s/early 90s.
It sort of stopped being a thing so much ironically about the time the videogame was released (late 90s).
it turns out this goes faster when I don't have to map out entire constellations... which is to say I've finished & am writing up notes; here's a teaser to tide you

(Sorry VPS provider who has, it must be said, been very generous in not actually enforcing cutting me off for exceeding my traffic allocation, despite monthly automated threats...)
Speaking of, the three ShB MSQ Trials felt *way* easier than SB’s?
(Which, as someone who hates them, is not me complaining…)
So I think, narratively, SB was still stronger than ShB, but OTOH I’ve never seen people so hype for a boss fight as in that final Hades Trial.
Like people zoning in yell-typing the lyrics to the theme song they’ve been listening to for half an hour in the PUG lobby… the game is doing something right.

Also lol at "... and then they all swum back from the bottom of the ocean (except Urianger)."
Doing PotD last night has I think finally made RDM "click" for me.
I never really got it before, but... I think I like it (a lot, in fact)? #ffxiv
