"There is a hole at the center of everything, and it is always growing. Between the stars I am seeing it. It is coming, and you are not escaping, and the universe is forgetting you, and the universe is being forgotten, and there is nothing to remember it, not even the things beyond. And now there is only the hole... You are atoms, and your atoms are not caring if you are existing. Your atoms are monstrous existence."
"I get it. This won't stop until I die. But when I die, I want it to hurt. When my friends leave, when I have to let go, when this entire town is wiped off the map, I want it to hurt. Bad. I want to lose. I want to get beaten up. I want to hold on until I'm thrown off and everything ends. And you know what? Until that happens, I want to hope again. And I want it to hurt. Because that means it meant something. It means I am something, at least... pretty amazing to be something, at least..."
- Night in the Woods
Night in the Woods had (and still has) such an impact on me, it makes me feel every time. Was listening to the entire soundtrack while making this, it's so good.
Been rethinking aspects of Smokey's story as well, mainly how his future plays out. I came to the conclusion that I don't want him to suffer forever. I tend to project all my anxieties and fear and problems onto him, but I want him to be a real character, not just a hollow shell that I fill with worries and mental issues. So you'll probably be seeing a lot of him soon, idk, if I decide to keep working on him in art form that is.
