Y'all ever let yourself get completely taken by a relatively unimportant side quest to the detriment of the main quest you've set your sights on?

Aren't side quests there to help you further develop the skills and experience you need to complete the main quest? Hardly seems unimportant to me, especially if its able to "completely take you" like you're claiming.

nobody has ever witnessed God full-on straight ahead. You can't approach anything meaningfully by going straight, come in an oblique angle into bed. Even Moshe could only see the backside of God, in a covered face, and he sees it late! Side quests are often the main quest, even if it doesn't seem like it fits with the pace. One day people will play the main quest, in a time where it's time, but don't worry about it, you don't have to wait.

That's the kind of thing that happens to someone who would play a high risk game without knowing the rules. Worse yet someone who constantly forgets their playing, what their position is, and that it's a team sport to begin with, let alone which side their on. You better channel whatever skill you have left, move carefully, and hope your side will forgive you for how low your faith is in your own perception. GL

clearly you have high perception and character, nitpicking writing styles and being needlessly rude to anonymous people online. truly the sage of our era!

Ya, that anon is acting really mean. I also hope they shape up. That kind of energy doesn't help many people very often. Banter can be fun, but not if it goes too far, or you actually mean it.
Thanks for the assist nice poster. The worlds need more like you. <3

i find that life is sometimes a lot of little side quests which amount to a main quest over time. Life, the situation of living, happens when I'm doing the dishes, making dinner, reading a book, working at my day job, posting hard online. Happens when I'm sitting bored and alone or going for a walk. so not to put too fine a point on it but it's like >>43 and >>45 say. side quest IS the main quest in the sense that it's all part of the same game you're playing; and what's the purpose of that game?
'side quest that ends up being my main quest' is deadass one of my hinge prompts lol
since when is poor grammar, and incessant misspelling a writing style?
you are far to generous to this imbecile, and you are doing it no kindness by taking pity upon it

I'm not sure that's quite right. 
there's a large difference between your purposeful stylization and the way that >>52 seems to just not be checking for errors. for this reason i think find your attempts coming across as intentional and theirs are simply sloppy. If we want them to improve indulging their laziness seems to be the wrong answer. Further I dont think the mean and heartless anime villians are very cool at all. I find the one who are cool need to have a large heart, perhaps one in the wrong place but they need to stand for something. villainy for villans sake is hardly interesting. Shogo Makishima is one of my favorites for that exact reason. Maybe i'm being too generous here, but i do think that >>103 's cruelty is intended to spark improvement or play with >>52. Though I'll admit it is ironic considering that their own post has several deviations from the accepted standard.

This is plainly incorrect. Cruelty for the sake of cruelty is just nature. Villains that act for higher ideals are just making excuses to bring things to their liking. There’s nothing big heart about that. Shogo lives in denial, masking his selfishness and cruelty with the heroic veneer of justification. “A sacrifice for a new world, a better world” what a boring common delusion. As if any could be better than another without the hidden “for me”. Shogo isn’t special, he's merely determined as all villains must be. Respectable visages of villainy exist in characters like Legato, someone who exists to deal damage, to inflict pain upon the living. Someone who recognizes that hurting others is not only inevitable but the spice of life, a true sadist. Legato offers a cruelty beyond killing, a suffering with a negation of the transmutation that could make it pleasurable. The destruction of the seductive force of ideals in general, without which will withers and dies. A cold drift toward inaction clinging to bare life chained to their burdens of virtue. When Legato is done with him Vash is completely broken, a shell of himself acting on the cloying kindness of being a good person. He would rather strip naked and bark like a dog than pick up a gun and fight. He can't accept the risk that he might have to make a choice like that again as it has been demonstrated to him that attempts to protect his ideal are ultimately doomed. Legato gives his life for a perfect violation that will never be recovered from, a bricking of the system from which recovery is derived.

I don’t think you understand Legatos' character well at all. You’re trying to take everything they do in isolation, but all of Legato's actions are taken in relation to the unfolding situations that are Vash and Knives. Legato tortures Vash for the sake of Knives, his dream, and his affection for Vash. That certainly isn't NOT a reason. Legato wants vengeance upon Vash for almost killing Knives with his angel arm in July. A desire intensified through his love for Knives. And despite having left Knives for dead twice, Legato lives with the constant awareness of Knives' persisting preference for Vash grafted onto his flesh. The right arm that hangs at his side was once Vash’s and so is at once both what allows him to reside at the side of his beloved Knives, and a reminder that the position he holds is only through the wound created by Vash’s rejection of Knives. The loss of the arm is a wound central to the relation of Vash, Legato, and Knives. Betrayal and disappointment, the agony of never having your affections be returned. Legato plays host to a very special kind of hatred for Vash, and unleashes a very specific brand of violence because of this. Unable to eliminate Vash without destroying something the one he loves would not do without Legato proceeds by inflicting psychological torture upon the stampede. Able to kill anyone but Vash, Legato places the target on Vash’s refusal to take any life whatsoever. Not because it is something so valuable to Vash that he would become a mere shell of himself without it, but because this is the value that separates Vash and Knives to begin with. To remove it from Vash allows for the reunion of the man Legato loves with the brother he desires. In a certain sense then Legato's actions sing out a love for Vash as well as Knives. Reaching in and killing a piece of Vash which keeps him from being with someone they both care for. Gently coaxing him toward pulling the trigger, “it's alright kill me '' and making sure he can't excuse it away by saying he was forced into it “don't make me!” “you have free will, time to choose”. Creating a trap for Vash to act on his value for Milly and Merlys life over Legato’s own is the first step in transforming Vash into someone that can be with Knives in the way Legato wishes he could be. His death becoming the connective force between Knives and Vash, becoming a piece of Vash that will carry him to Knives. Vash’s collapse was an unintended consequence, a result of a failure to fully abort his insistence on upholding Rem’s morality, though decimating him and forcing him to become something different was certainly intentional.
A villain like Legato simply couldn't exist without an idealist like Knives.
