Loveless-midnight by MidnightExigent
Stranger Things is beautiful and otherwordly. It gives a strange sense of comfort even in the show's most uncomfortable situations. There is nostalgia and then there's nostalgia executed with excellence.
Those kids... they're kids. One can feel like a kid again watching them. They're awkward, they play, they have adventures.
They really pull you in, don't they? These characters are wonderfully convincing.
We can't help but have a favorite - Eleven, of course. I like "Elf" for her, which also happens to mean eleven in German. Works, right?
That enigmatic, tortured girl can't not be the focus of this feature, hence the title. She speaks very few words through the series and yet expresses so much thanks to Millie Bobby Brown's haunting performance.

We had no difficulties finding amazing fan art pieces for Stranger Things with which we can explore the characters, places and underlying themes. Let's go to the Upsidedown. Don't get lost.

Something's coming. Something hungry for blood. A shadow grows on the wall behind you, swallowing you in darkness.

While drafting this issue, lovelessdevotions and MidnightExigent encountered several demogorgons and no Barb at all.

The "White Christmas" episode from Black Mirror is a technological nightmare unlike any I've ever seen, be it real or fictional.

Imagine blocking or being blocked by other people... in actual real life.
Imagine having a digital copy of your mind for use as an A.I. for trivial purposes such as smart home controls.
Now Imagine being that, thinking you're you while trapped inside a virtual construct forever with nothing to do except perform mundane tasks.

The people who wrote this episode are brilliantly fucked in the head. The futuristic concepts they portray based on how we use our technological advances feel like they are absolutely attainable and just years away from being real.

I have the strong impression that some people think that Eleven/El/011 from Stranger Things is a boy.

I'm not annoyed by the actual occasional premium membership ads but I'm amazed that nobody thought to exclude lifetime premiums from the distribution list generation yet. Or maybe I can get the star instead of the toilet if I up-upgrade?
Hard techno is good for the old brain muscle.

I never thought I'd love a Rihanna song, but here we are repeatedly sledgehammering.

What are you studying? :)
Hey I just saw a journal from someone saying that the admins have been banning people who've done sexual roleplays through the notes.  Is that true?  Just thought I'd ask one of you that works on here for the truth.  And it was this dovahthedragonborn.deviantart.… journal.
TheRyanFord Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2015  Professional Interface Designer
From what I heard, the issue is that you did it all through notes.
The admins prefer when you do these types of things out in the open. It keeps people more "honest," I guess. That's why, according to what I think I just read, the admins want you to do it in the comments section on their profile pages. You and whomever you're RPing with can talk about your stories and ideas, etc, and the admins can more easily monitor for illegal activity (like underaged stuff, which is a big no-no).

Hope that helps!
Well I never do anything that's underage.  I don't support or do anything that's underaged.  And if someone asks me to do something that is underaged?  I tell them no and block them because I don't want to do anything that's underaged.
MidnightExigent Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist

I don't know and I don't care because I don't work here anymore. Sexual roleplay is against the policies, however, so you can probably get banned for it at some point if taken too far or getting caught too often, even more so if someone's a minor.

Make art and sex-rp somewhere else.
Alright.  Sorry.  And I don't take it too far.
King-Mob Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2015
He's just messing with you. TheRyanFord is actually correct. So it's preferable to just write it in comments on realitysquared's page or another admin, like spyed.
