Ever since I found out HABIT claims to be responsible for tons of real world disasters and serial killers, I can’t shake the feeling he sometimes just sits down on a recliner, sits with a plate of pizza and watches the news, proud at what horrible heinous acts humans are capable of doing when horrible people aren’t on his leash.
I think that this fandom is part of the reason why my girlfriend and I are dating. A few weeks after she gave me a similar die to the one that HABIT has in Severance, she asked me to be her girlfriend. I have a feeling a tiny bit of that is thanks to the die and the fact that we marathoned the whole series in two nights together at her house.
EMH brought back my love of watching serial killer documentaries, and now when I watch them I imagine HABIT made them do the bad things they did, and whenever I hear them say things like, “I don’t know what made me do it,” or “It’s just a force of habit for me,” it’s such a thrill for me.
