'End of the Internet' and the 'Done Percentile Ruler'

Contrary to popular beliefs, there is more than one ‘END’ of the internet. It is not a particular thing, it does not follow a specific theme, and it will not follow preconceived notions - rhetorical, sequential, or theoretical.

Like a table’s flat surface, the Internet has several End-points, interconnected to form the very edges of belief and understanding, yet individual in experience. Reaching one of these Ends, even if beside an End previously encountered, will resemble nothing experienced before. These Ends follow the rules of perspective and influence: The slightest adjustment of data, such as where your point of origin was on the ‘table’ of the Internet, can drastically change the outcome and atmospheric value to an absolute, incomparable point.

Further confusing these popular beliefs is the fact that the ‘End’ of the Internet - that is, the destination where no further forward movement can be made and all are encouraged to turn and retreat from these maddening edges - is difficult to locate. There are many misconceptions as to WHERE any End can be found. And lines are made in the safety-first notion that any further involvement may cause you to reach the End’s falling point prematurely.
However, these misconceptions are born from a lack of understanding of the many formulas of measurement.

A specific form of measurement is the ‘Done Percentile Ruler’. Though its creator is unknown, the daily users of tumblr claim this method as their own national form of measurement.
The ‘Done Percentile Ruler’ is simple. The higher the percentage of Done a person is with a subject, the closer they are to an End of the Internet. These percentage to End ratios vary from fandom to fandom, but it must be noted that an individual being ‘100% Done’ very rarely denotes that they have reached the ‘End of the Internet’. Many studies have proven that 1000% done is far closer to an End. The phrases ‘So Done’, ‘Get Out’, ‘Leave’, and ‘I Can’t’ also fall within these percentiles and are considered milestones for tumblr users. Using these milestones as reference, it is agreed that the phrase ‘Bye’, found at the 1000%+ range of Done truly denotes where, in full fact, does the Internet End.

Please note that when reaching any of these Ends, it is required that you turn back. This is not a matter of opinion and cannot be contended with.

HOLY SHIT GUYS


(go visit this fucking town, oh my god.)

I am going to talk about this town for a minute because i sincerely appreciate the effort this person put into making their dream town genuinely creepy as fuck. Feel free to add a readmore when reblogging, i just have no clue how to do that myself without fucking it all up

So first and foremost, the town is set up very very very particularly, so that you have to move through it in a certain way. Note the map:

which only has one bridge, which means that you see the little “story” that our mayor has set up for us exactly in the order she wants you to. You start at the tree in the center of town, and the first house you come upon looks like this:

The lights are on and there are flowers fucking everywhere and generally it looks pretty nice. And on the inside…

we appear to have a family celebrating a birthday party with cake and a present. Note the dresser blocking the way to the back room. Also note that the middle mannequin is wearing the same clothes as the mayor of this town.

Speaking of the mayor, she says different things depending on where you are in the “story”. At this point, she says “おかあさん だいすき”, which translates to “I love mom”. 

And then there’s the second floor of the first house

which let’s be honest would be sort of creepy even if we didn’t come to this town expecting it to be creepy and even if hypno music wasn’t playing on the boombox in the corner, which it was.

So you leave this house and you cross the bridge up in the corner by the waterfall, and suddenly you’re faced with this fucking maze of bushes and holes and pitfall traps that is more annoying than it is difficult. Also Re-Tail is closed, and the message informing you of this is a bit eerie:

I don’t know if she even could change the message but it’s a nice touch

Also at this point, the mayor has changed her saying a bit if you speak to her

she’s still saying “I love mom”, but she’s alternating hiragana and katakana every other syllable, which is something you just do not do in japanese especially not like this it’s sort of like if it was written in english as “I lOvE mOm”

So anyway the second customized house you come across has this on it’s ground floor

(you can’t get past that point right there there’s something on the ground blocking you jk according to tumblr user ironyfilleddonut you can in fact get past and to the back room just by shuffling through. the backroom contains creepy dolls and eyes on the walls, apparently)

and this on the second floor

i honestly have no fucking clue what she is trying to say with this

There’s also a basement, but i forgot to screen cap it 

So after the second house you move on from the maze and it’s basically this dead area and the mayor is talking like this

which is obviously fucked up you don’t need to know anything about japanese to understand this one

and then you move onto the third house which is basically a shack, and the inside of it is summed up in those 7 pictures in the middle of the photoset. Though I think it’s worth mentioning that in the bookcase room where you first walk in, you can here a radio screeching from where it’s hidden behind some bookcases in the back, and that toy you can see in the corner of the shelves in the third picture in the photoset is creaking

Finally we have the last house on our path through this fucking town, and you walk in and…

Mayor McCreep herself is there (and speaking in complete gibberish as in the first shot in the photoset), but you can also see that it’s the exact same house as the very first house, only shit is thrown everywhere and the lights are out and the tv is static-y and also the dresser has been moved let’s see what’s in that back room?

well. okay then. 

but of course we need to check out the upstairs too and…

it’s ALSO exactly like the second floor of the first house, except there’s an axe in front of the dolly, the paintings are blacked out in Don’t-Hug-Me-I’m-Scared style, and all of the other toys except dolly are facing the wall instead of the middle of the room.

You would think this would be the end of it, but if you look back at the map, you see that little beach area that you can’t get to without a wet suit? There’s a grave yard there. And our lovely mayor must have wanted us to be able to get there, because i dug up a wet suit back in the maze part of town, which i’ve been wearing in all of these screenshots because i went back and took most of them after i found it.

So you swim across and go to the grave yard and there are three spots where you can dig shit up. So what’s buried in the creepy little grave yard on the beach?

WHOA 2SPOOKY BET U WEREN’T EXPECTING THAT

but there’s also a dolly buried to the left of that skeleton, and a time capsule buried to the right (which the game made me put back right after i dug it up so i couldn’t see what was inside of it. i’ll bet she went to a lot of trouble to write out some long creepy letter to put in there and it makes me sad that no one will ever see it besides her)

So finally I’m done exploring, I take all the screenshots I need and go back to the middle of town to go back home, and i notice a present by the bed which was there the whole time and i was probably supposed to pick up first, but this being my first time using this dream town thing I kind of over looked it because i thought it was just something that was always there. So instead I end up picking it up last, and what’s in it?

r u fucking kidding me right now

So in conclusion, the amount of work that went into making this fucking town must have been completely staggering, and I give serious props to Ms アイカ for creating a town and a story that was actually pretty fucking terrifying, even if it was a bit cliche

but no, Luna, this fucking dream did not soothe my soul at all

P.S. the name she chose for her town, アイカ, can also be written as 哀歌, which according to my dictionary is the word for a lamenting song, like an elegy. So yeah. make of that what you will.

i started writing yelp reviews as my alter ego michael ching

The same day fans told me they wanted CIDER for Wii-U, Nintendo proactively reached out and provided me with an overview of their basic set-up with indie devs (details of which I have to keep confidential). So after I read them and thought they looked great (something I can say), I went straight…

I used to time travel. Never more.
