HOLY CRAP Dude, I can't believe a single person can have so much depth, so much meaning, so much sentiment, so much talent, so much art, and so much to give to the community. I appreciate you for everything you do, Mike.

The ending words grabbed my heart, ripped it out, and tried to put it back in but failed.

I'm just thinking now how for years, I've always unplugged USBs straight from their spot in the USB section instead of finding the option on the computer to finish up and safely eject them. Nice.

Wait what? Why!?!? I mean of course she wanted freedom but wtf this is sad, was something torturing her? I couldn't get the flashbacks ;-;

Jeez I now don't want to throw my phone to my bed anymore.... oh wait, that would be fun right? if you don't hit the floor of course..... the only thing I got from the flashbacks is that she was thrown but I just don't get it
