old ships you forgot you loved that come back and just punch you right in the face
Do you ever feel like someone doesn’t want to be friends with you anymore? They don’t have to say anything, you just know. They talk to other people more than you, take hours to reply to your texts instead of minutes, constantly make plans with other people and hardly ask you to hang out. All along you know it isn’t gonna end well but you still have that sliver of hope. And that one day, they ignore you completely. And you know, you finally have to accept, you were right.
let’s play a game called: who the fuck are you i dont remember following you
round 1: what was your old url i don’t fucking know who you are anymore
round 2: you’re not even in any of my fandoms what the hell
do you ever see a person you used to be friends with and you’re like “glad i got the fuck outta that one”
*crochety old man voice* let’s go see what people are saying on the old reddits about pakratt!

Oh look, there are some people shit-talking someone I consider a dear friend. I’m not gonna stand for that. Nope, not at all.
Okay, it’s two in the morning and I should really sleep, but I’m gonna tackle these one by one. (Cat I know none of these are your opinions; don’t take this as an attack against you)
First off, let’s tackle the top one. The one about no drama over Pakratt’s death. This actually fucking pisses me off. Remember how Dinnerbone and Avidya were killed in the first ten minutes of UHC Season 11? The subreddit had a shitfit about that. But both times Pak was killed off in episode one? Nothing! I think this is incredibly hypocritical of the Mindcrack community. What, so Pak doesn’t get anyone objecting his episode one death because he’s not as popular as Avidya? Because he’s not a special guest like Dinnerbone? That’s bullshit and a clear example of how ridiculous this community can be at all times.
All Mindcrackers/guests are valued contestants in UHC, regardless of whether or not they have a lot of subs or a special status. And they deserve a fair fight. What ever happened to the “gentlemen’s agreement” that was brought up so much in Season 11? I heard nothing of it here.
Not to mention that nonchalant attitude about Pak’s death you have there. I think it’s incredibly insulting for you to just assume he’ll do crappy in every UHC. Does anyone remember SEASON EIGHT where he got into the FINAL TWO? No? Just me? Okay then.
"Taking too many chances?" Okay, so he saw a temple. He went for it. And you wouldn’t in this competitive environment? Yeah right. Temples can give you the advantage you need to win a battle or a game. Anyone remember Season 8, where Adlington killed Guude with a diamond sword from a jungle temple? Yeah, go temples. Okay maybe he was a little rash for heading off without food or tools, but for temple-searching, the first few minutes can be vital.
"This is the fourth time Pak died first." This is a fact. A sad fact, but a fact nonetheless. No refutation needed. Moving on.
"Pakratt is more useful dead than alive." Okay, so you want a team to purposefully go with only three guys because you think Pak’s that much of a load? Think about what you’re REALLY saying here. Also, you insulting him by saying he’s just so bad at the game that he’s more useful NOT playing it, and NOT making videos for his channel. Incredibly rude. Moving on.
"OldSethOO are better without Pak." No. You get no consolation in this opinion. Someone’s worth as a team member is not measured in their skills at PvP. This is a repeat from Season 10, where people objected to Pak being placed in a team with Etho, stating that he’d drag Etho down and ruin the team.
But wait, what did he do with Etho that season? Oh right, together they made the first and only successful UHC trap! They managed to hurt MC with lava. And you know what? It was so characteristic of Pakratt that the first thing out of MC’s mouth after he put the lava out with water was “Pakratt was here!”
Pak’s a planner, not a fighter. To insist that he’s dragging a team down by existing is SO rude I can’t even begin to tell you how awful you look saying that. Not everyone can have the skills and/or popularity of BdoubleO, SethBling, or OldManWillakers. Doesn’t make Pak any less valuable of a person. Moving on.
While I personally believe that while living Pak is more valuable than ghost Pak, I’m going to let the last one go because it was probably said with no ill intent.
People seem to forget that Pak’s a person too. They look at his sub count of 53k and assume that it must because because he’s bad at what he does and overlook him. But he’s really a great YouTuber. He has great commentary. He does so many good things for the server. Remember Guudeland? Literally all Pak. He works his ass off on that place.
Pakratt is a PERSON with FEELINGS, and an incredibly KIND and COMPASSIONATE person at that. Remember how I said I consider him a dear friend? That’s because he is. He’s been nothing but kind to me ever since he modded me. He’s dried my tears, given me advice, actively cared about my well-being, and all sorts of other things that make a person a good friend.
To badmouth someone simply because they lost a game is cruel, and I’ll be damned if I’m going to stand for that.
tl;dr: shut up about Pakratt sucking.
That escalated quickly.
GOD FUCKING DAMMIT
do you ever wanna talk about a thing but you know you already talk about it too much and your friends are sick of hearing about it so instead you just hold it all inside you and constantly feel like you’re gonna burst?
Shit about to go down in my speech textbook.
i am literally the friend that gives relationship advice and is always single
I respect those people who get a lot done on their days off cause I am the absolute opposite and do nothing all day whenever I can
“You’re the worst friend ever” in a monotone voice
I’m very happy
"I will rip your fucking throat out"
