    I played some of the other FF games on NES and SNES and loved them to death. I met a far-away relative-in-law at one point in a long-past life and he said, "Actually, FFT is the best". I was, honestly... Offended, almost? I couldn't imagine that being a correct take.

    Of course later I spent hundreds (thousands?) of hours playing it many times, memorizing the battle mechanics guide, loving the story (despite the bad localization the story is incredible, unmatched actually), and min-maxing the fuck out of every single thing in the game.

    I was wrong all along, naturally.

    Super scary stuff. Then you have to wonder what's in the proprietary software that no one ever finds. The whole thing makes me want to quit developing and live in a cave on a mountain somewhere.

    I don't mean this in a rude way, but is there a reason we're working in AHK? I'm not being unhelpful, but this is possibly one of the last languages on Earth for which I'd qualify to be helpful.

    I mean just looking at it nothing jumps out. But I think Gemini might be able to help you more than I can.

    I've written my values down with my other writing. Be wary of certitude. Do the best you can with what you have, and try to be kind to people. Be the person you want to be by acting like them.

    Very cool. Wish I was cool enough to do stuff like this in Inkscape lol. I'm sure there must be tutorials somewhere.

    I hope this works for some people. There is additional autobiographical context without which I worry it may not make sense, but I don't want to share too much. Let's just say I met a remarkable friend who inspired me to get out of a terribly toxic relationship. A relationship between myself and the friend was not ever in the cards due to a variety of factors. So I knew it was never going anywhere, but it still gave me the confidence and hope I needed to not just quit on life and to get out of that relationship.

    Love

    Love's sweetly poisoned darts

    Are wasted on this heart

    Inerrant though they fly

    My shielding gives them lie

    These centuries-builded walls

    The keenest edge forestall

    Thus armored sit I here

    At siren's call do sneer

    By hours, years do toll

    And cold becomes my soul

    That blackguard, Love, I spurn

    From treach'rous Hope I turn

    At length my vigil wanes

    Naught but ennui remains

    With apathetic sigh

    And dry, half-lidded eye

    My senses, weak, are dulled

    To fitful sleep are lulled

    Thus primed for artifice

    Undone by artlessness

    A 'doring glance unlocks

    My bitter heart. A shock —

    A shining word, a koan —

    The fatal shot is flown

    Each quick'ning touch, now soft

    Our scales, forgotten, doffed

    Bewitched by winsome eyes

    We don our honeyed ties

    Yet venom's stings presage

    Our bittersweet malaise

    But how is it that we

    Bemoan this malady?

    In love — by Love, lovesick

    Yet, healed, we poison pick

    No Cupid bends a string

    We prick ourselves, willing.

    My mistake. I looked quickly for dupes but didn't find it. Sorry about that. I'll delete this after a few minutes for you to see this reply.
