Some people like to call me Jester.
You wake up in the middle of the forest at night, with no memory of how you got there. All you have is a backpack full of Cheez-Its and other essential supplies, along your own wits to help you on your way. As you explore this strange land, you'll find things you never knew could exist, (at least, not that you can remember). You'll meet strange creatures, some friend, others not, and maybe, just maybe, recover your lost memories...
My (rather rushed), entry for the Lone Hero contest. I'll be the first to admit that not all the endings will make you any sort of hero, lone or otherwise, (mainly the ones where you run away from just about every source of conflict, and/or die). But if you're brave enough to do what you think is right, even though it may result in your untimely demise, you may just make yourself a hero yet. In that light, I guess you could say you're a reluctant Lone Hero.
While each route of this story can be understood to some degree on it's own, it is important to play every branch to fully understand the greater story that's being told. I have no intention of revealing everything on the first play through, you'll have to take the time to explore everything to learn all it's secrets.
By the way, on the off chance that you find any glitches or bugs, please tell me. I'd like to know so I can fix them.
With the threat of COVID-19 looming, a young college student turns to the only thing with any chance of protecting them. The power of essential oils.

It seems CYS has a lot more peasants quietly working in the fields than any of us realized. I imagine quite a few of them jumped at the chance to ascend despite the risks involved. After all, wouldn't you?

When I was your age, I used to get as many Minecraft dogs as I could. The experience taught me much about the inevitability of death.

It seems like guys that look like this tend to be cool like that. Maybe it has to do with the fact that they really have nothing to prove to anyone regarding their masculinity.

You think that's bad, try giving a cat a belly rub. Dogs have only one set of teeth, whereas cats have about five. Putting your hand on a cat's tummy is kinda like putting your hand in a bear trap.

I remember geometry dash being pretty good. It's like a cross between a rhythm game and a platformer. And there's also a few games like Fez, Stardew Valley, and Terraria that got ported over, though I can't imagine why anyone with access to a real computer would choose to play them on a phone. But yeah, most of the stuff on the App store is pretty trash nowadays because of in app purchases and whatnot. I think the reason mobile games specifically are problematic is because a lot of their market is, as you said, eight year olds and Facebook moms who don't know any better. If the only games you play are bad ones, then you'll never think to question whether they can actually be better. I used to spend a lot of time playing mobile games when I was little, especially Pokemon clones. I remember the first time I picked up a REAL Pokemon game, the fact that I didn't have to wait two hours or pay in order to heal after a battle blew my mind. But if I'd played nothing but mobile games my whole life, I'd never have known the difference.
It also probably doesn't help that people expect mobile games to be free, so the developers have to find other ways to make a profit.

Don't forget the sparkly romper and rainbow cape.

I want this to be real so bad...

That's a really young kid, probably too young to have chosen that costume himself. That means it was probably his dad's idea. Coolest dad ever.

I think white people like to "protect" other nationalities because it makes them feel superior. As if these cultures which have likely survived any number of various assaults ending in bloodshed are somehow too fragile to handle another country adopting their holidays. No, they simply must need a big, strong white person to defend them.

I don't know if honesty's really so much of a superpower, considering that now his neighbors know his plans, and can better defend themselves when the time comes. If it came down to it, would he cannibalize his own daughters too, or let them cannibalize him?
Edit: Googled Alex Jones. When I first saw this, I thought he was joking, but based on what I've read, now I'm not so sure.
