Such a relaxing track, there’s a mystical feeling behind this track that I adore. <3
Don’t mind me, just posting the best track in the entire Klonoa series.

It’s a really aggravating trend that I’ve noticed on here. Someone makes up a sob story (usually involving things like abuse, child abuse, homophobia, etc) and legions of people reblog it and add comments that say things like “THIS is why I hate x” before people start to poke holes in the story, debunking and discrediting it and exposing the OP’s fraud. But others still reblog the original post and express their outrage because hey, feels before reals.
It just makes me really angry because there’s enough awful shit in the world; why do you need to make more of it up? Not to mention the fact that it trivializes and disrespects actual victims of these issues; their trauma is being used as a cheap source of pathos for someone to get notes and sympathy. If you make up a story about a little girl being horribly abused or something, then you really are a sick fuck.
All I ask is that people start thinking more critically before jumping the gun and mindlessly buying into everything they read. It’s okay to question a story, even one that’s particularly horrible, especially on this website (which has a godawful track record for fabricated/made up stories). If something is too good (or rather, too bad) to be true, it probably is.
You know, I think it’s actually sort of a waste of “talent” when people fabricate these stories. If they really wanted to draw attention to these issues, maybe they can write a short story or something?
Tumblr can be gullible, but if it can sound realistic enough as a fake news article, then they must have SOME kind of storytelling talents. Maybe they can use that to make extremely realistic and relateable works of fiction? There’s this novel called “Speak” that is amazing, and I would recommend it to anybody. I was around 14 or so when I read it, and it was like reading a story about myself. It changed my life. The world NEEDS more books like that. Some of these people really might have the ability to reach out and touch others, bringing more light to these topics and actually make a difference. That’s something a fake news article could never do.
But then again, none of that would please their outrage fetish.
When I get excited about something my friend has no interest in.
