Accepting Anxiety, Part 1/2: Excepting Anxiety!  Episode #16

Synopsis: I don't think I've ever been described as particularly... chill. My heightened anxiety, both socially and in general has been something I've had to deal with a lot. But what if any and all fear, shame, and anxiety suddenly up and went away? In this video, it appears that this has indeed happened, and the other Sanders Sides are trying to figure out what happened, and if this is a good or bad thing... Please enjoy my Disney references, my love of slapstick, my adoration for the movie Clue, and some eerie twists in the first part of this Sanders Sides journey!
Genre: Mystery

Uh, hey…uh- this is Thomas, and, uh--this is usually where I start off, uh- by saying something quick and witty to begin the video. Yeah.


So yeah! Another video. This is awesome! Oh wait, actually, I usually start off this video by saying “What is up, everybody!” But you know, I don’t actually hear your responses. And, strangely enough, I’m not concerned about consistency today. You know what I wanna talk about? Eatin’ food. Or you know what, actually? Maybe about that TV show I just watched. Or maybe I should just watch another TV show and eat some food. That’s it. Alright, until next time. Take it easy, guys, gals, and non-binary pals--

Uh, if I may… I’m going to step in for a second.

Ahh, Logan’s here, so I probably did something wrong.

What? No. You just seem to be a little… uncharacteristically… careless.

Hm. I hadn’t cared to notice. Ah- pfft, that’s it, there it is, that’s what you were saying.

Yes… I mean you tend to start the video with at least some sort of direction before the inevitable internal conflict.

They do usually follow that story arc. But, maybe, that’s a good thing. You know, like, changing it up.

No. I mean… maybe. I don’t know, you’re confusing me. I think I have a vocab word for this. Uh. You good, fahm?

Wow. That was bad, but like, you’re a really good try-er, Logan. You’re really good.


...If anybody, like, texted me… ooh!

Thomas, you didn’t answer the question.

Your question about whether or not I’m good, fam?

That’s the one.

You’d probably know if something is up because you usually provide, you know, the explanatory exposition in my videos because all the other characters are too zany or relatable.

Okay, I’m at a loss here. Should we check on the others?

If you want.

I do. I do want… that. Are you going to-

Morality! Creativity!

Wow. Rude.

You too cool to call us by our names, kiddo?

Nah. That was just the easiest way to, you know, quickly establish what you guys generally represent, in case there are any new viewers watching.

Jeez. Okay, I- consider taking a more nuanced approach with that explanation next time.

He’s my logical side. He’s my logical side.

Uh… is everything Gucci, Thomas?

I suppose I could’ve posed the question that way as well, but that is precisely why I wanted you two here.

You mean us three?

Oh, did I say three?


Then I guess I didn’t mean three.

He’s made mistakes before.

An uncommon occurrence.

Well then you might say the amount of mistakes you’ve made is... infinitesimal?

You make ONE MISTAKE, and THIS is what happens!

Okay, time out for thee and time out for thee, focus on issues or focus on me.

-groans- Okay, you’re right. Let’s get down to business.

To defeat…

[Thomas and Roman]: The Huns!

Please stop. Stop, please.

Come on!

I’m sorry. I’m sorry.


Thomas, that aloofness that you are displaying is highly… unproductive.

You mean I can’t make babies? What? Just kidding. Uh...

Can someone else please- some whe- le- Flames. On the side of my face. See- Seething… Seething fire.

Is something bothering you buddy?

An unattainable dream? A hopeless romance?

Lack of sleep, a- a puzzling situation.
