2023.04.02 12:31 Thirsha_42 Tight Money
I have thoroughly enjoyed reading SpacePaladin15's
the Nature of Predators series and all of the fanfics as well. I finally had enough inspiration to start writing my own. I haven't written anything like this since college so it has been a while. Please message me with any suggestions and constructive criticisms. I have never written in the 1st person so this is particularly new to me but I hope I stayed mostly true to the format set in the universe. This is only part one of I don't know how many but I have a detailed outline with 6 1/2 pages and this only took me to half a page of that.
I want to give a HUGE shout out to BiasMushroom
who let me use some of their news reports, their character Talen, and gave me some direction for my story. I also want to thank YakiTapioca
for letting me use elements from their stories as well.

I opened my eyes to the dimly lit room. Confused, I looked at the blinds, they should be open. My eyes fell onto the cradle. The twins were still sleeping, their tails curled around each other. Glancing at the clock on the bedside table I could see why the blinds hadn’t opened. I still had almost a quarter claw before my usual waking.
My eyes shifted to the photo next to the clock. The day my husband and I celebrated finding out I was pregnant. Conflicting emotions of happiness and melancholy filled my mind. It was a wonderful memory but I couldn’t ignore the empty space next to me. The arxur had killed him before Vissa and Tas were born. With not enough time to go back to sleep and no desire to get up yet either, I reached for my holopad to check Prime News. The Anchor woman was mid-sentence when the feed buffered. “-minion forces have attacked the research outpost hosting the Venlil-Human Exchange Program. The station defenders were able to defeat the raiding party with no damage to the station at all. We have received reports from the Governors Office that there were no venlil casualties resulting from the battle. However, the humans suffered over a hundred casualties and recovery efforts are ongoing. One fighter with a venlil and human pilots is missing in action. According to a source on the station, this defender was able to heroically lure away two of the arxur raiders and fled towards the Federation border. The whereabouts and well-being of the pilots is unknown. In Governor Tarva’s press release, her office stressed that the lack of venlil casualties was the result of the human copilots telling their venlil pilots to eject or in some cases even forcibly ejecting them in some cases.”
Why would predators save prey? We were nothing in their eyes. I can’t fathom how this played into their schemes. The blinds opened and the alarm went off. The twins stirred and I know it is time to get up and feed them. No more news. Set the holopad down and pick up the twins, check their diapers, nurse them, check their diapers again, play with them, hold them, sleep with them. Things had finally settled into a comfortable routine again.
This last [week] had been so hectic, the invasion sirens, Governor Tarva’s announcement about peaceful predators, and the closed borders. In a single day we became prisoners in our own space and our leader had all but withdrawn us from the federation. We had no protection anymore. Tarva ignored our protests outside her mansion and even encouraged people to talk to the predators. The only sensible thing to happen was the magistrates announcing they would activate all of the current and former extermination officers and increase recruitment. That was only two days. Vissa and Tas were done. I had been playing with them a while when mom called.
“Hi honey, how are you?”
Dad stepped into the frame. “How are the twins?”
I held the holopad over Vissa and Tas on the bed. The two seemed enraptured by the picture.
Dad cooed. “They are so precious.”
“We are doing better each day dad.” I laid on the bed next to Vissa and Tas and held the holopad so that mom and dad could see me and the twins. Tas reached for holopad while Vissa giggled.
Mom spoiled them with attention, wiggling her fingers at the camera, encouraging Tas. “We would love to come visit you and the kids. Oulo has a rest paw coming up soon. We should get their paw prints cast and take them to the park.”
“That sounds like a great idea. I know the twins would love to see you. I still have some extra train rides on my account from my maternity leave. Message me the details and I’ll book you both tickets.”
“You should save those dear, we can manage the tickets.”
I could see the worry in their tails however much they tried to hide it. “Dad, we don’t use the train in the capital. We use the trolley system to get around so I have extra train rides and I would love to have you. You know I could use the extra help with the babies.”
That won them over and it wasn’t a lie. Living in the capital meant we had more options for transportation. Plus, with the predators at their new complex, I haven’t been getting out except to get food or diapers.
“Oh, ok then. We wouldn’t want those to go to waste.” Dad nudged mom with his tail. “Tell her your good news.”
Mom, sat up and smoothed her fur excitedly. “I just got the news that I got the job at Vikki’s Flowers!”
“Mom, that’s wonderful! When do you start?”
“I start in 5 paws. I was honestly surprised they were hiring at all with things how they are.” When Tarva closed the borders, she cut off all trade with the federation and caused an economic crisis like we hadn’t seen in my lifetime.
“That is wonderful news and I hate to cut this short but it is about time to put them down for their nap. Send me the details and I’ll get you the tickets.”
“Rest well sweetie.”
“Goodbye mom, dad. See you soon.”
I ended the call and put the twins in their crib. Vissa was almost asleep already and Tas wasn’t far behind, despite his best efforts.

The alarm started chiming and the blinds opened, flooding the room with light. Vissa and Tas started crying. Checking their diapers needed to be done first. I wish they would stop crying while I changed them. I turned on the news to watch while I fed them. Talen was back and he sported a bandaged head. Did the humans do that? He had only been at the Exchange Program for a couple days. What happened? Talen started his report. “Breaking news. The venlil and human that have been missing in action since the arxur attack on the outpost station that was hosting half of the Venlil-Human Exchange Program on [August 21st], have made their way back to us in a stolen Federation craft.” Talen sighed. “The human, known as Marcel, was in critical condition, while his partner Slanek was injured but stable. We will now show you a recording of the incident. If you are prone to feinting or other outbursts, please block this show for the next [minute] as the contents of this video are quite disturbing.”
With the twins in my arms, I could not reach the holopad to do anything about the video. Prime news switched to a camera elevated above the humans, who were crowded around the docking bay, craning their necks to see their pilot as the ship finished the docking procedures. Human paramedics rushed through a hole in the crowd as a venlil who I assumed was Slanek, shouted at them and gestured with his tail inside the ship.
The camera zoomed in on the entrance to the craft as the paramedics reemerged with a human on their stretcher. He was hardly recognizable as a human. His body was splotchy and obviously emaciated. His skin was taught and his face. Sun and starts what had the Federation done to him. The camera panned back out as the paramedics whisked him through the hole in the crowd.
Before the video ended, I noticed that the predators backed away from the paramedics as they drew close. Do they fear being hurt like that? Are they trying to help by making more space? Talen returned to the screen. “What you have seen here is the after effects of Federation torture of their human prisoner. The story that we have so far is that Marcel made a call to lure the arxur attackers away from the outpost, where their ship became disabled and were rescued by Captain Sovlin. Marcel was fitted with an electric shock collar, beaten, and starved for days before Slanek woke from a coma. Slanek was taken to see Marcel in an attempt to convince him that they are savage beasts. When that failed the Federation Captain attempted to feed Slanek to his human partner. Slanek was later able to convince Captain Sovlin’s first officer, Recel, to betray his captain and save Marcel. The trio stole a federation craft and made their way back to Venlil Republic space where Marcel is still in critical condition but being treated.” The co-host continued, “For those out of there that still believe humans are simply biding their time, or will slip into predatory behavior if they are stressed out, here is proof that even if they are starving to death, they will not attack and attempt to eat a venlil. We have contacted the UN for an official statement on what they plan to do and have been notified they will give an official statement soon. We will continue to cover this story as it unfolds.”
Prime news finished that segment and transitioned to a panel of experts but the twins were done feeding so back in the crib they go while I cleaned up and got ready for the day. A chime alerted me to a new message on my holopad. After showering and drying off, I put Vissa and Tas in a play pen with some toys and checked the Bleat message. It was from, Niit. “I hope you are doing well Leena. I am sending you a message to let you know that our claws are being cut again due to the lack of Federation trade. There simply isn’t enough traffic but, and this surprised me let me tell you, we will be retrofitting an old Venlil Cruiser. I heard talk that Tarva is trying to increase the number of combat ready ships. If you ask me, I think she knows something we don’t. The predators are up to something and she has finally figured that out and is preparing for it at the roots. Hopefully, the Federation will forgive us if we give them Tarva to make an example of and send the exterminators in force to Venlil Prime to wipe them out. Paws open. Your friend, Niit.”
Well speh! Losing claws was a problem. I logged into my credit account to check the balance. I sighed in relief and sadness. The military survivor’s benefits were deposited a paw ago. That helps. Doing the math, I think we’ll be fine. Even if they cut me down to a claw and a quarter, I think I can still make it work with the benefits and an old ship retrofit will mean a lot of work for me searching for parts, so that bodes well. All that is left for today is to register Vissa and Tas in a care center. I started a search for local care facilities while I absently played with the twins. Vissa got her claws caught in my fur again. Guess I’ll look when they are napping.

My first day back and there had apparently been some changes. Niit had started to leave her holopad on to streams of Rux Limpbut, an infamous streaming personality, while she filled out work orders. I didn’t think he was wrong necessarily but did he have to be so obnoxious? “This is it people, I told you it would happen. The humans are invading the Cradle. The humans are slaughtering their way across Gojid territory. And, AND! And what is our esteemed Governor doing about it? She is helping them. She has sent our soldiers into harms way to die for the predator’s conquest. The humans have revealed their true intentions. They said they came in peace but now they are waging a war of extinction against the Gojid and they are using us to do it. WE KNEW there would be slavery but to force peaceful venlil to commit such atrocities…. I could never have predicted the depths of their depravity. These humans are as bad as the arxur, maybe WORSE, at least you know what to expect with the arxur but with humans they lie and steal and deceive… and they have stolen YOUR government. They have stolen….”
I signaled to Niit to mute the video as I made a call to inquire about a cooling unit for the Cruiser docked in the Capital hangers. When the call was over, Niit immediately unmuted the stream. “-redators are? I’ll tell you how arrogant the predators are. They think they can convince the federation of their benevolent intentions WHILE THEY ARE SLAUGHTERING THEIR WAY ACROSS THE CRADLE! Only a predator would think that was sane. They claim that they needed to protect themselves, what a load of Speh. If we accept that then they would have reason to kill anyone who dared try to protect themselves. Do you, yes you listener, want to be slaughtered or dismembered, or ripped apart because you picked up your favorite gardening shovel?! But I’ll tell you what I’m grateful for. I’m grateful the predators are so arrogant. I’m grateful they are sending their chief liar to the Federation Council. They will see what the predators are and see Tarva for the traitor slave she is. They will come and rescue us all. We only need to hold on a little longer. Now if you’re exhausted and spent then you need my endurance booster vitamins. These will give you the strength to power through your fears and hold out for the Federation rescue fleet and at only 30 credits for a whole bottle it is available to all venlil….”
“Niit, please turn it off,” I pleaded.
“He is… too much.”
Niit muted the stream and looked at me signaling sympathy with her tail. “I understand Leena, I do. The predators scare all of us.” She put her hand on my shoulder reassuringly.
I learned from Balan, that ever since the predators had arrived and the borders were closed, she had started listening to Rux and was a stalwart fan.
“You need to be vigilant! These predators could strike us at any moment. You should try Rux’s endurance boosters if you are struggling to keep up with the herd.” She reached into her desk and pulled out a bottle of the advertised pills and handed me one.
“I can give you one so you can see how good they are. I recommend buying the bulk pack. You save 5 credits per bottle.” She watched me expectantly.
With no other option, I swallowed the pill. I didn’t feel any different. “Thanks, Niit. I hope it helps.”
She waved her tail satisfied, “It will don’t worry.”
The ride to the care center was a short one. It was a happy coincidence that I had found a care center so close to the space port. The time saved commuting was enough that I did not have to pay for a full two claws of time. Still would have preferred that Governor Tarva had not closed the borders but I would take any blessings I could and Young Pups had a good reputation around the Spaceport. Vissa and Tas were fussy today and it was difficult to keep them awake before we got home. When I finally put them to bed and lay next to them the day finally caught up to me. It is nice that I have a break paw when I wake. I should take the pups to the park down the road. They would like that.
Again, I would love your constructive criticisms. I work full time and it took me a week to write this so I cannot guarantee a set upload schedule but I will try for one per week. Thanks in advance and I hope you enjoyed. And xXSinglePointXx
, please don't pee in my shoes. The babies will be fine, I swear.

2023.04.02 09:14 cesly1987 Despair's Peak (complete story chapters 1-4 linked)
The Restless God lies trapped, but not idle in its sealed off realm. It writhes and yearns for the day it may again take pleasure in the pain of mortals. To once again play in the blood and baske in the terror only finite creatures can produce. Many worlds it's fed upon, but never satiated. But the world that fought back against its attacks long ago are the ones it wants all the more. It has become an obsession. So it waits, and it feels, searching for weaknesses between the borders of our world and itself. Hungry and anxious it salivates at the thought of breaching into our world again. It will be its greatest decadence and pleasure, and our darkest days. Despite this, we must pray to Her Divine! We must beg for mercy and the return of Her light.
-Grand Mage Tellomon the IV on the prophecy of the Dark God's return (Second Age)
Pitch blackness. Pure darkness. A thick void of nothing completely swallowing me up, like a fish in the depths of an ocean.
I was crouched low in a ready position, using my right hand to balance by holding onto the wagon's wheel beside me. My legs burned from forcing myself to remain completely still. But pain had become a constant in my life now.
But I was grateful for the adrenaline burst that would always dampen the ever present burden of hunger and fatigue. At least it helped for a little. But the pain found its way back to me faster and faster each time.
It was hot and humid, almost like the swamps of the eastern bog a good 3 weeks journey from here. The cold wind stopped when the darkness befell our remote town. The breeze no longer ran its cold tendrils across the barren streets.
I grabbed the thin string tied around my neck and pulled out a heavy monocle hanging from it. I held the cold metal up to my eye, to look through the green tinted glass.
The magically infused monocle always remained cool to the touch, with a static shock feeling emanating from it.
I held it to my eye to see the world around me clearly, yet tented in bright shades of green. My eyes roamed across the quiet, motionless street.
Debris and bloated corpses littered the street. With no wind and the unnaturally heavy darkness, this somehow had a dampening effect on the stench coming from decaying bodies. They could only be smelled once you were almost on top of one of them or a meter away. But my dead kinsmen helped even in death, making good landmarks to navigate through the darkness.
There were monsters that accompanied the dark fog. Twisted figures that were the void itself. Maybe they were the cruel thoughts of the Restless God made manifest.
Humans long ago, in the First Age had named them rippers. We all hoped they were just a myth, not actual walking nightmares
The rippers swarmed the town in the blinding dark. They seemed to only kill for killing's sake. They never ate the people they killed, almost like it was just for fun instead of survival.
It made sense in some twisted way. The Restless God must have returned to our realm, and brought these hateful things with it.
Prophets had long told of The Restless One's return by it sending nightmares through the veil of reality, to infest in the minds of our leaders. Centuries of slowly chipping away at the barrier separating us, chipping away at our sanity.
The Restless One birthed itself into our reality like an already dead stillborn abomination. Like a newborn giant, deformed with extra limbs and already rotting from death.
But it was alive! As alive as this strange creature could be. Now it was free, and this did not bring the thing elation, just more anger and restlessness.
How do I know all these things? The nightmare visions sent to all mortals across the realm since the Restless One's returned. Actually there were nightmares for most of the town leading up to the event. I guess it was our omens for being so close to the epicenter of its invasion.
One omen would have been terrible enough, but something this perverse stacked on the misfortune.
Dark signs of its arrival showed themselves all over the Kingdom of Maldune. The signs stretched further across to the neighboring kingdoms. The wretched god's birth pains were so terrible, I wager they were felt thousands of leagues away on The Wild Continent.
But the other Kingdoms didn't have the vast magical communication network like us Modunians, so reports of bad omens tampered off dramatically outside of our borders.
The misfortune of my town was like I said, we were the closest to the epicenter of the entities push into our reality, closest to the cradle of the spoiled god.
An entire mountain range protected us from the shock wave of magical energy, but all livestock siezed up and died. All birds fell from out of the air. All rodents died in their holes. And our very young died in their cribs.
It was a terrible event to have the town's children instantly killed, but now I see it as a mercy for the little ones. The innocent children got to go to Our Divine in their sleep peacefully, or at least quickly. They didn't have to die in the suffocating dark, or by the diseased claws of the rippers.
The town's guard fell quickly. A group of 16 men on loan from The Capitol, to keep peace and protect the trade routes. Our peacekeepers were more used to using words to settle disputes among merchants, or occasionally throw a drunk into a cell overnight.
They were ill equipped to handle the inky blackness that engulfed the town, rolling down from the mountain like a fluid landslide. The confusion of the townspeople quickly turned to pandemonium as the screams began.
That's when we realized we were not alone in the dark. Things moved quickly in the blackness. The Rippers began to slaughter everyone in the pitch blackness.
The first few days are a blur to me even now. But that's how I remember the beginning of the horror, the beginning of the end. I remember the dark engulfing the town, the adrenaline of fear. My last sight was of silent death spilling down from the mountains like a boiling pot overflowing with a viscous poison.
When the black fog first swept over me, my first few breaths of the miasma burned my eyes and lungs. The taste of metal on my tongue. The smell of sulfur and something sweet. Something sweet and rancid. Decay and corruption.
But now I had to shake the fog out of my head and return to the terrible present. I had to embrace the hopeless situation without falling to despair.
My magical sight gazing through the monocle finally spotted the rest of my group. Jillsophie, Tagert, and Fellip. Tag and Fel carrying the heavy burlap sacks of animal feed, while Jill led the three of them through the darkness with her own magical monocle.
We spotted each other from across the corpse littered roadway. The General Goods store had caught on fire early in the supernatural invasion. Somehow the strange darkness had put out the fire, snuffing it out like a heavy blanket thrown over a weak flame. That's why we were back, looting the store, trying to keep from starving to death before the rippers could kill us first.
Jill gave me a series of quick hand signals I had recently taught her. They had scavenged three bags of feed. Fil was carrying two big bags and Tagert one of them, but they were heavy and we were all weak. Jill wasn't carrying anything. She was too busy leading the two of them by pulling on the corded string she had tied around both their waists.
Before I waved the three of them to hurry over, I turned to Caville, my partner in crime on this side of the road beside me. He blinked wide eyed in the darkness, one gloved hand twisting the ends of his graying mustache while the other held a death grip on the pommel of his sheathed short sword.
I had to remember I could see him clearly through my monocle, but he only saw and felt the oppressive darkness. He was just waiting for a claw or fang to strike him from the darkness.
Because of this I lightly placed my hand on his shoulder. The light touch didn't stop Caville from almost jumping out of his boots. He quickly calmed when he realized it was me. The old warrior steadied himself once more.
I place my hand on the flat of his chest so he could feel my finger placement through his light shirt. I signed the question to him through a series of light thumps separating the words.
"Another bag. 40 LBS. Can carry?" I finished my signing by holding the hand placement designating a question mark firmly against his chest. I saw his eyes widen and he grimaced in doubt. His old frame shook a little as he prepared his answer.
Of course he answered back that he could carry the load, but I knew the real answer. It's amazing how much we communicate through non-verbal cues, and how much more when we think we are concealed in darkness.
He was barely standing on two feet. Starving and aching. He was pushing his late 50's, and his joints and muscles carried the pain of being a veteran soldier for over 30 years. He would collapse under the weight of his light armor and newly added bag of feed. No way he could keep quiet or climb back up into the attic we were all hiding at.
But Caville's years of being a proud soldier almost assured me that he would take on the task regardless of his disposition. So I signed back to Jil, "Drop 3rd bag. Later."
I lied and informed Caville that I was incorrect in my assessment. There wasn't an extra bag of feed, and we would be returning to the relative safety of the windmill.
Jil quietly led Fil, with Tagert close behind, across the road. Her own magic monocle making it possible to maneuver around the maze of debris and bodies. They all moved slow enough for Jil to communicate with sharp tugs on the string fastened around both of them. Stealth was key.
When I first saw it I didn't know how to react. I knew what the rippers looked like through my monocle, and I knew the placement of all the dead town-folk. But as I watched my three companions snake around the bloated body of Mr. Dredge, the blacksmith, I saw the faintest quiver of motion within the corpse.
Normally, that would mean some sort of vermin or carrion feeder had nestled within the body. But in this nightmare world we lived in, the Rippers killed everything that wasn't already slaughtered when The Restless One re-emerged into our reality, sending out It's shockwave of death.
To my horror I realized something else. Upon closer inspection of Mr.Dredge's body. I noticed it had somehow moved a couple feet to the left since last time I had seen him. I could even see the wet smear marks in the dirt from where it dragged itself over.
My magical monocle could also detect other magic. It wasn't very good at it but still could. My vision was bathed in illuminating green, but magic showed up white.
That's what I saw rising out of Mr.Dredge's body. Four bright spider-like legs protruded out of the back of the corpse, and hooked into the ground, lifting the stiff dead body into the air slowly, quietly.
Jil in the others were completely unaware of the horror looming up behind them. The jaw of Mr. Dredge fell off with a soggy "plop" into the dirt. What looked like a large inverted scorpion's tail writhed out the body's mouth. The scorpion tale hung down around the body's bloated chest. The tail curling up to point a large stinger at the group.
I could see that Jil had heard the "plop" of the jaw falling off the corpse behind her. She raised her eyebrows, sniffed the air, and froze in an alert state, her two companions bumping into her.
I had temporarily frozen too. I had never seen a monster like this before. Its spider legs lifting the body up to let its human feet brush its toes lightly on the ground. The whole body was ridged from rigor mortis. The body's hands curled to its chest, making fists, stiff legs swaying like the awkward pendulum of a clock. Still bodily juices and blood oozed profusely from hismouth and ripped open guts.
A surreal thought came into my mind. Maybe it was my mind trying to make sense out of nonsense. Mr.Dredges stiff body reminding me of toy soldier from my childhood. They were always stiff jointed when brand new, not dead.
I finally snapped out of my daze when glowing white spikey tendrils pushed the body's guts out with another wet impact noise. The many spiked appendages snaked out slowly towards the back of the unaware Tagert.
"Jil!" my voice boomed out, breaking the silence like a cannon burst. Everyone jumped in surprise. "Run! Run!"
With my off hand I quickly dug into my pocket and produced a phlare, the phosphorus filled stick. I quickly pulled the cap off with my teeth, igniting the flame dangerously close to my face. I didn't care, and barely felt the heat.
Holding out the phlare to signal to Jil and the others, producing a blinding light in the dark. But the blackness was unnatural and dampened the burning flame into a muted orange glow. Regardless, the phlare was still bright enough to signal the unsuspecting trio crossing the street.
Through the monocle I saw all three of them lock eyes on the light and begin to hurry towards me. It was against human instinct to run unaware in darkness. This made them not fast enough, because the Dredge-thing shot out a torso tendril to stab Tagert in the upper back.
Tagert let out a cry of pain, but kept coming. The cry of pain causing all three to break out into a full run. The need to live finally overriding the need to see.
I dropped the phlare as Jill led the other two up to me. They almost ran her poor soul over as she braced to stop them. The Dredge monster seemed to be slow. Her Divine was still blessing us!
I grabbed Caville's shoulder and Jil grabbed the tail of my shirt. We all took off together, back to the windmill.
We tried to go as fast as we could the couple blocks back to our hideout, but It was hard going. Caville lagged beside me, with Tag and Fel huffing as they carried the 40 pound feed bags.
I looked back at Dredge to see it had fallen on its stomach and was skittering after us like a centipede. It was considerably faster now!
I lowered the monocle to put both hands on Caville's shoulders and push him in front of me. Even if I pushed him we still wouldn't be fast enough.
My mind raced, like it had so many times since the birth of the Restless One. My mind swirled with anxious thoughts of decisions and counter-decisions. My sleep deprived and starving brain hallucinated the faces of my people alongside the terrible silver teeth of the Rippers lunging towards me out the colorless backdrop.
But like always, I made a desperate choice. "Drop the feed bags! Its gaining on us!
I expected to hear the "Thump! Thump!" Of the bags hitting the dirt, but I got what I least expected instead.
"No Jack! Don't drop the feed! I'll buy you time!" Caville said as he shrugged free of my grasp on his shoulders and started in the opposite direction towards Dredge.
"I'm so t-tired of running away! A-and I miss my daughter and grandkids!" the old warrior declared, his voice cracking at the end of his statement.
He held out an outstretched hand and fingers. When the tips of them made contact with Jil's dirty clothes, he easily side-stepped around Jil and the other two with grace as they hurried past him in the dark. These were skills long honed from blindfold training to heighten a soldier's situational awareness level.
Jil was the only other to see what was happening. She reached out for him as the other two pushed her forward. She stifled a cry and pushed ahead.
I was glad Jil wouldn't see this, but I felt I had to watch. I had to witness his sacrifice in the depths of this hell.
I saw Dredge's corpse crawl its way up to Caville, one of its longer talons hooking into Caville's upper knee. Caville screamed and sliced horizontally instantly. The sword cut through the air harmlessly over the monster.
Caville took this information and countered quickly as more sharp tendrils stabbed into his lower body. He rose the blade high over his head and let out a final death blow, plunging the sword downwards to impale the monster, staking it to the ground.
The monster pulled the old soldier down and tore into him. Caville's screams echoed out as I turned to run. Worse is when his screams finally choked out and fell silent.
The group of us made it un-accosted for the rest of our journey. We hurried in silence just like we were in mourning. We made it to the edge of town where the river and the watermill stood.
We climbed up the stacked boxes on the side of the building to slide open a wooden panel into the attic.
The inside of the attic had the low glow of multiple lanterns and the stuffy smell of multiple unwashed people living in tight quarters together for a long time.
We piled in quickly to close up the entrance behind us. There were 8 of us now. Me, Jil, Fil, Tag, Mama Denise, her two kids, and Harper sleeping in the corner.
All eyes met mine as they counted the three of us. No one had to ask what happened to Caville. They all knew. I think even the kids knew.
By the best we could reckon, it had been a month since death swept over our town. The rippers patrolled the streets and buildings constantly, searching for survivors to kill in the beginning. They also destroyed any cache of food or weapons they came across.
There was a deeper intelligence behind the rippers. They were vicious and animalistic when encountered, but they would carry out complicated tasks relentlessly, like soldiers receiving orders. It had to be the malicious influence of the Restless One speaking to all of them, like they were the claws at the end of his corrupting grasp.
It was Jil that had the idea for the feed bags at the General Store. Yes, they were for cows and horses, but they had been magically enhanced and would give the human body what it needed also.
It would give us enough strength to try and escape this Divine forsaken town, and hopefully leave the darkness to flee to the safety of the Capitol.
I knew the thought of making it all the way to the Capitol was ridiculous. The longer we headed east, the more likely we ran into the army of rippers that left the town at least two days ago.
It had been hundreds of them! Me and Jil were out scouting the General Store for the feed bags we had just now retrieved.
The going was slow, because the enemy was everywhere. But we knew how to maneuver from rooftop to closely packed rooftop. And the grew closer togeher the closer we got to the center of the town.
From where we started, the watermill in the outskirts of town, it seemed like the town was suspiciously empty of the monsters. But we soon realized that was the opposite. We didn't see any Rippers on the outskirts because they were all gathering together in the town square
The bright figures of humanoid shaped demons clustered together in a giant group. The magical vision of the monocle causing them to glow from whatever evil sorcery created them. So many of them huddling together created a glowing sea, flooding the courtyard.
Rippers were rumored to have always existed. Even before The Restless One returned. But they were rare and only inhabited places of great tragedy and a history of dark magic. Now there was an army of them, amassing to March East towards The Capitol.
Some said The Rippers were phantoms created by The Restless One. They were his only way to reach through dimensions and torment the living.
More scholarly Old-timers theorized the Rippers came from the vengeful spirits of the long extinct elves, hunted to extinction by Man a millennium ago.
Ancient texts mention the long extinct Legacy Elves had a bad habit of dabbling in dark magic, causing The Restless One to specifically target them, repeatedly using the elves innate affinity with magic to breach into our reality to cause havoc.
Many believe Man's genocide against the elves was not entirely warranted, it had help seal The Restless One away. But not all elves worshipped the Restless One. Many of them worshiped Her Divine like we humans do. But relations between elves and humans had always been strained, and this was the excuse humans needed to eliminate their rival for dominance over the lands, once and for all.
"Why must we be punished?" I remembered Tehama asking when all this first happened, back whe. She was alive.
"It's not our fault! It's the fault of our long dead ancestors! The kingdom that commited the atrocity doesn't even exist anymore!" Tehama said in a fit of nervous mania.
We had to hush her for getting too loud. But the truth is, we had no answer. There was no clear reason why we were all being subjected to such anguish.
Like I said, Tehama didn't make it anyways. On a supply run she had grabbed a doll from her old home to bring to Mama Denise and her two girls, but had dropped it in the street when Jil spotted a group of Rippers scaling the rooftops a block away.
We all scrambled to hide, hoping the Ripper patrol moved along. But they spotted the dolly laying in the dirt. And some sort of supernatural intelligence recognized this wasn't here on their last patrol. They knew humans were moving around.
The five of the Rippers in the patrol circled the doll, all letting out a high pitched squeals, like an alarm calling to others.
Me and Jil hid in a nasty bale of hay next to a gutted horse laying beside it, hopefully masking our scent. Our terror rose as we watched more and more Rippers coming out of the shadows. They slid down buildings, out of doorways, from under debris, and they all were all screaming, almost deafening to us.
There were three magical monocle's during this time. All of us had one. And we could all see the count of Rippers going into the hundreds!
They would find us! By flooding every corner of the street, they would come across us eventually!
That's when Tehama made her decision. I didn't see exactly where she hid, but she wasn't hiding anymore. She broke cover and ran directly into the streets, into the crowd of monsters. She tossed her monocle behind her towards our direction, maybe for us to recover later.
Of course they glowed brightly through the monocle, but to the naked eye they were an inky black. A black blacker than their surroundings, making it almost impossible to see them.
When the Rippers got close to their chosen victim, they allowed their prey to see their shiny silver teeth.
The sharp protruding teeth stand out bright and glistening, almost like silver, against the backdrop of darkness. as they moved in to kill the hapless human.
This is all Tehama saw as she dropped to his knees and searched blindly for the dropped dolly. She screamed and cried as the teeth sank into her tearing off little bits of her flesh.
The Rippers began to whoop and laugh like hyenas as they snatched piece by peice of her away. From the little I knew, the Rippers didn't need to eat. They just bit her for the joyful cruelness of it.
Blood soaked, mostly skinless hands of poor Tehama found the dolly that had started all of this horror. She hugged it close to her skinless chest and let out a gurgling scream before tipping over, most likely dead from shock.
That very second! That truly horrid moment! I decided I wasn't going to die in this town. I wasn't going to "wait it out" like all the old-timers advised. They are all dead now anyways! They didn't wait it out.
The King's armies hadn't made it in time. No fireballs from battlemages to shatter the darkness, no royal purple knights lead by The Heroic Prince Julian, no salvation from Her Divine!
If we waited we would all die in the dark. No doubt the King was coming with his armies, but how many days, or years will it take to Him to reach our settlement?
No, I would not die here. I had promised myself this years ago! I would survive like I had also promised! I would save Jil the way she saved me!
Then the army of rippers moved out East towards the Capitol. But there were still wicked things left behind to kill us. But this was our best chance!
As I sat in the darkness of the attic my mind was free to visualize in wonderful colorful detail my last memories before the Restless One tainted our town with its sightless void.
I remembered walking through the town, going towards the training academy. I was going to climb the mountain behind it. I was going to climb it again and again until I graduated and became one of the Royal Warden's Squires. The academy started soon and I never made it to the top without resting and without dropping my pack.
This is why I was one of the first to see our oncoming doom. The inky blackness spilled out from around the mountain to flood towards the town.
I knew I had to run and give warning to the town's guard. I wasn't a Warden's Squire yet, but I still had a duty to protect the people.
Tears heated up my cheeks as I sat in the dark, greatfull Jil and the others couldn't see me crying, as I remembered the death that followed.
But one of my last memories gave me the tiniest blink of hope. I remembered the peak of the mountain stabbing through the blackness. The mountain was tall enough to escape the flood of hell filling the valleys and town around it.
There was a ceremonial watchtower at the top of the mountain, filled with supplies. It's where the academy cadets earned their badges and completed their training. The mountain was the last test to becoming a Warden's Squire. A grueling uphill climb with a nickname given to the mountain by past cadets that like to boast over their hard earned accomplishments.
The mountain was affectionately called Mt. Despair, and it would be our salvation.

2023.04.02 09:07 -Bonjour-- Corse, je t'aime
We have been to Corsica several times, and there are several ways to travel to Corsica by ferry: We went to Nice, took the afternoon ferry and were in Bastia in the evening. The next time we took the night ferry from Savona and arrived in Bastia the next morning. And we also went to Livorno once, took the early morning ferry and were in Bastia by noon.
From Bastia, we first headed north on a 110 km coastal road with small villages and breathtaking views. First we came to ERBALUNGA with its massive tower on a rock by the sea has a picturesque location. Then we passed Maccinaggio, Cap Corse, Centuri-Port - a small romantic fishing port and center of lobster fishing - and continued via Pino to Nonza.
In NONZA the houses cluster around a rock that rises 160 m from the sea. We walked up to the Tour Pouline - a fortified tower from the 16th century. From there you can see the black beach, which makes a great contrast to the turquoise sea.
After we had explored the north, we drove from Bastia down the whole east coast - we made a stop at Moriani Plage with a beautiful sandy beach - to Porto Vecchio.
PORTO VECCHIO has a fantastic location and has a lively old town: the Genoese fortress from 1539 is situated on a hill. Porto Vecchio is the third largest city of Corsica, besides the flourishing tourism there is still the traditional salt mining and other trades especially in the suburbs. The malaria mosquitoes were wiped out in the 1950s, so that even in this area could be built without further ado. The old town consists of only four longitudinal and ten transverse streets, it is closed to traffic in the summer. At the Place de la République people like to drink their Pastis or Kir in the evening. In the old town there are many restaurants in various price ranges and boutiques partly with typical products of the country.
Many people come to Porto Vecchio for its beautiful beaches. BENEDUTTU PLAGE - a long fine sandy beach with a view of Punta di Chiappa and also of Porto Vecchio. A part of PLAGE CALA ROSSA is occupied by a luxury hotel, therefore the fine beach is accessible only from the western side. PALOMBAGGIA PLAGE with white sand and turquoise calm water - one of the most beautiful beaches of Corsica - is surrounded by red rocks. At ST. GUILIA PLAGE some hotels are settled in the meantime. Thus, the once paradisiacal bay has now become more of a commercial place. But the beach is still wonderfully bright and the water crystal clear. RODINARA PLAGE - a dreamlike round bay - one of the most beautiful of Corsica. Once only a dirt road led to the lagoon. Since a real road was built, this bay is very busy in the season.
From Porto Vecchio we made a tour to COL DE BAVELLA (1218 m high) - an impressive landscape. There are good hiking trails, e.g. to the Cumpudella (Trou de la Bombe), a huge hole in the rock face, where you are rewarded with an incredible view after a scramble. In season, of course, it is very busy there, and the "real" hikers come as early as possible in the morning.
Near the small village of L'Ospedale is the drinking water reservoir BARRAGE DE L'OSPEDALE. From there you can hike up to the 70 m high waterfall Piscia di Gallo - but it is more worthwhile in spring, when there is still enough water.
From Porto Vecchio we went on to BONIVACIO, one of the great attractions in Corsica - despite the many visitors. The upper town, where we stayed, is built on a 60 m high chalk rock plateau and still has a historical structure. We could see all the way to Sardinia from our hotel - it was beautiful weather.
The harbor is at the end of the long, narrow inlet. From there it is best to make a tour on foot. From the fortress walls you have a fantastic view of the city, the coast and the sea and all the way to Sardinia. On the harbor promenade there is a sea aquarium in a natural grotto. The shore road leads to the fishing port and the ferry port,
The upper town is reached through the 16th century Porte de Gênes. From the Jardin des Vestiges one has the most beautiful view over the harbor. It is hard to walk from the lower town to the upper town, because it is quite steep and with many stairs.
The journey continued to the extreme southwest, the land of blood vengeance - still until 1840. SARTÈNE - the "most Corsican of all Corsican towns" - is an interesting old town, which is virtually stuck on a rock. Almost no ray of sunlight reaches the winding narrow streets, and the narrow multi-story houses sometimes have window holes like sinister defense towers. The center of the old town is the Place de la Libération with some restaurants where you can sit outside and enjoy your drink.
From Sartène we drove to PROPRIANO. This place was discovered late by the tourists, there is a nice promenade between the marina and the pier, where it is lively especially in the evening. Propriano is located on the Gulf of Valinco, here the rivers Taravo, Baracci and Rizzanese flow. Right next to the lighthouse is the beautiful beach Plage du Lido.
On a scenic coastal road you drive from Propriano to PUNTO DE CAMPOMARO. Here is still an unspoiled stretch of coast with calm turquoise water and bizarre granite rocks. Above the small village of Campomoro you can see a 16th century watchtower.
AJACCIO is the administrative center and capital of Corse du Sud. The city with its southern flair has a beautiful old town with the citadel and many restaurants and stores. Ajaccio is probably best known as the birthplace of Napoléon, whose statue can be seen at Place Maréchal Foch. In the evening it becomes lively in the alleys of the Genoese old town with many bars and restaurants.
Unfortunately, the citadel can only be visited as part of an organized guided tour. Worth seeing is the church "Notre-Dame-de-la-Miséricorde" with a large dome, where Napoleon I was baptized. There is of course also a Casa Bonaparte. In the new town, you can still find some magnificent houses on the Avenue de Paris or the Cours Grandval, where there are often stores and boutiques.
Northwest of Ajaccio one comes to the POINTE DE LA PATARA. You can easily walk to the Genoese tower from 1608 from the parking lot. From there you have a beautiful view of the Iles Sanguinaires with the lighthouse. From the parking lot you can also make a coastal hike to the north. There are beautiful views of the sea everywhere and you can walk down to the beach at Capo de la Fena to cool off. However, the surf is quite strong.
The view was magnificent on the CHEMIN DES CRÈTES, but it was also very difficult to even find an "entry" to this trail. And besides, the Macchi was partly so dense that you had to be careful not to hurt yourself on the thorny bushes.
Especially in the south of Ajaccio there are beautiful beaches. First of all there is PORTICCIO with its long wide beach. Porticcio is now a large seaside resort with good infrastructure.
Then comes the bay with the long PLAGE D'AGOSTA with a view of the Isolella peninsula. In the next bay there is the fine sandy Plage de Ruppione between rocks with quite high waves.
And then comes my absolute favorite beach with fine light sand and crystal clear water - SOLE E MARE, and I hope that there will not also be larger hotel and apartment buildings there.
A beautiful small lonely sandy bay with calm water can be found at PLAGE DE PORTIGLIOLO. North of Ajaccio are the beaches PlLAGE SCUDO and PLAGE MARINELLO, very popular with the locals because they are not too far from the city.
From Ajaccio you can make an excursion to PORTO POLLO. On the way we went through the mountains, where we "got lost" a few times, because there were no signs, and we could only drive by "feeling". Porto Pollo is located on the Gulf of Valinco and has a fine sandy beach with many picturesque round rocks. In summer, a lot of people come here. At the end of September however many things are already closed or will be closed.
A recommendable tour south of Ajaccio is the ROUTE DES COLS. Over various passes and through the largest eucalyptus forest on the island, you come to the small village of Coti Chiavari, 486 m high, with a pretty little church. From there you also have beautiful views of the mountains to the sea.
On a hiking tour, we headed towards Corte and then to the small village of Cuttoli-Corticchiato, continuing to the idyllically situated hamlet of San Petru at 888 m above sea level. From there we went to the MONTE ARAGNASCU, a somewhat arduous tour in the blazing sun. But we were rewarded with a beautiful view of Ajaccio, the Gulf and the Gravonatal.
In the GRAVONA VALLEY is the village of Bocognano, from where you can also hike well. We came on the poorly signposted "Chemin", whereby we were also surprised by rain.
Interesting was that we were accompanied all the way first by several dogs, then later one remained. When we eventually had enough of the rain and the bad path and walked back, we encountered some wild boars which did not look very "friendly". The dog started barking at them. And indeed, they sought the distance. It looked like the dog was trying to protect us somehow. Down in the village we met the owner of the dog - the older man invited us spontaneously for coffee - and he told us that his dog was often on the way as a "companion" for hikers.
Another hiking tour led us first to the GORGES DE PRUNELLI and to the reservoir Lac de Tolla, which supplies Ajaccio with water. From there we went to the large farming village of Bastelica, the gateway to the high mountains. From here, many hiking trails lead into the mountains and to some waterfalls.
Another excursion we made towards the north over the Col de San Bastiano to the Golf de la Liscia to CARGÈSE. This place with a small harbor is located on the southern slope of a headland. Worth seeing is the Greek church "Eglise greque" from the 19th century with old icons. North of Cargèse are of course again beautiful sandy beaches.
From Ajaccio in the direction of Corte we looked at the CASCADE DU VOILE DE LA MARIÉe, where the water normally plunges 150 m into the depth. It was quite a climb and then, unfortunately, the waterfall didn't even have too much water at the end of September.
Through beautiful pine forests we came towards Corte past the famous PONT DU VECCHIU, built in 1927 by Gustave Eiffel. Until 1999 this was the only connection across the gorge, but now there is a modern bridge.
CORTE has the only university in Corsica with about 4000 students. The old town, rich in tradition, is situated below a rock with an old fortress built in the 11th century. In 1962-83 this fortress was used by the Foreign Legion. From the Belvedère viewpoint near the citadel, there is a beautiful view of the mountains and the surroundings of Corte.
Also worth seeing is Fontaine des Quatre-Canons, a colossal fountain that served as a water supply for the upper town in times of siege. On Cours Paoli you can find restaurants, bakeries and many other stores. On the Cours Patrimonial, there are some arts and crafts stores. The 17th century church Eglise de l'Annonciation is one of the oldest buildings in Corte.
From Corte we drove along a narrow road through a beautiful mountain landscape to the RESTONICA VALLEY, a nature reserve with many Corte pine trees. By car, you can drive to the parking lot at the Bergerie de Grotelle. The ascent to Lake Melo was quite difficult, you had to climb over many large stones, sometimes you didn't know at all how to continue and had to climb back, and so on. After about 2 hours we had made it and were at the Melo mountain lake. After a 30-minute rest in the sun, we then needed for the descent again 2 hours. Because with one of my trekking shoes the sole loosened, and I had to hold them together in a makeshift way with the shoelace...
From Corte we went first through the NIOLA VALLEY with numerous hiking trails. For a long time this area was only accessible by mule trails. Here wild boars ran across our path. You can see them especially in autumn when the chestnuts fall from the trees.
The large village of EVISA is located in the middle of chestnut forests and is a popular destination. Here begins (or ends) the hiking trail through the wild gorge of Spelunca. Through a beautiful mountain landscape and a 14 km long granite gorge we came to the GORGE DE SPELUNCA, an impressive gorge where you can hike very well - either from Evisa or from Ota.
In the small very popular town of PORTO at the mouth of the Porto River, we had a beautiful view of the Genoese Tower, the Gulf and the mountains from our hotel. The angular Genoese Tower on a headland is the landmark of Porto.
From Porto we drove to the CALANCHES DE PIANA, which start 8 km behind Porto. The granite rocks here are eroded by wind and water into the most bizarre shapes. The colors vary depending on the time of day, in the evening for example bright red. From the old mule trail - Sentier Muletier - you have great views of the rock world. There are also other trails - e.g. La Corniche.
Then we drove to PIANA, perched on a 434 m cliff, which can call itself "un des plus beaux villages de France". The only sandy beach in the area is the Plage d'Arone in a beautiful crescent shaped bay with only a few people.
From Porto, the best way to get to CALVI is to take the coastal road, which is very winding but takes you through some beautiful scenery on the Gulf of Porto. From our accommodation in Calvi we had a great view of the fortress and the Gulf of Calvi.
Calvi, the pearl of the north, is a well known and popular vacation center. Very nice are the lively alleys in the lower town and the harbor quays. In the alleys of the lower town and the harbor quay you can stroll nicely and also find restaurants and stores. The church "Sainte Marie Majeure" with a polygonal ground plan is striking. The first Christian chapel on this place was built already in the 4th century, subsequent churches were destroyed several times. The present church was built in 1774. Outside the town on the Gulf of Calvi there is a long narrow sandy beach, the water here gets deeper only slowly - ideal for small children.
The citadel "Bastion Spinchone" is the landmark of the city, you can walk around it on a ring of walls and have beautiful views of the city and the sea. The citadel was built on Roman foundations and is the oldest fortified building in Calvi.
Worth seeing is the church of Saint-Jean-Baptiste in the center of the citadel. Originally built in the 13th century, the church was largely destroyed by the explosion of a powder tower in 1567 and subsequently rebuilt in the Baroque style.
A beautiful beach near Calvi is the Plage d'Argentella, about 1 km long, in the bay of Crovani. You can get to the peninsula on a dirt road. You can make a nice but strenuous hike there. From a parking bay you have a beautiful view of the peninsula.
A nicely situated and rather quiet place is l'ILE-ROUSSEL with a small harbor and the Genoese tower and lighthouse on the peninsula "La Pietra". The village owes its name to this offshore island, which has now been turned into a peninsula by a dam and turns red at sunset.
L'Ile Rousse was laid out in 1765 in a rectangular street pattern around the harbor and is said to have the mildest winter climate in Corsica. In the alleys of the old town of L'Ile-Rousse there are several small shops selling souvenirs, jewelry, clothing, wine, etc. In the Marché Couvert there is a market in the morning. In the surroundings of Ile-Rousse there are many light sandy beaches.
Between Calvi and L'Ile-Rousse in the small village of Algajola there is a very beautiful wide and 1.5 km long beach - PLAGE D'AREGNO. In high summer, the beach is apparently very crowded. When we were there in mid-September, we had the beach to ourselves.
SAINT FLORENT is located in the north of Corsica on the wide bay of the same name - in winter an idyllic fishing village. Since the place is very popular, the population increases tenfold in the summer. A point of attraction for tourists is the large marina. In the center you can find bars, restaurants and many souvenir stores. St. Florent is also called "St. Tropez of the island" because of its special flair. On a panoramic road above Saint Florent one has again and again beautiful views of mountains and sea.
On the way to Bastia you can make a detour to the local mountain of Bastia - the 960 m high SERRA DI PIGNO. On a clear day you have a good panoramic view over both sides of Cap Corse .
BASTIA is the most important port for ferries from the French and Italian mainland and also for freight traffic. Bastia is the biggest commercial and economic center of Corsica with an industrial zone. But Bastia is also a busy center of Corsican everyday life. The Place Saint Nicolas with plane trees and palm trees is 300 meters long and 90 meters wide, making it one of the largest squares in France. The beach Plage Arinella, located south of the city, is very wide and long, but unfortunately not very attractive.
The heart of Bastia's Terra Vecchia district is the horseshoe-shaped Vieux Port with the church of Saint-Jean-Baptiste in the background. Walking north through the narrow streets, you come to the Place de l'Hôtel de Ville, where a market is held on weekends.
Around the dock there are many restaurants in all price ranges. When we are in Bastia, we always have our aperitif at a bistro where we have a nice view of the small harbor and the church.
The citadel was built by Genoese in 1380. There are the magnificently renovated Governor's Palace, the Cathedral of Sainte-Marie-de l'Assomption - a Genoese Baroque building erected in 1604-1619 - and the small chapel Oratoire de la ConfrIère de la Sainte-Croix, where you can see a cross made of black ebony in a side chapel.
The palace was the seat of the Genoese governors between the 15th and 18th centuries, today it houses the Ethnographic Museum.

2023.04.02 07:14 alex9834 The Haters Guide to the 2023 NCAA Basketball Championship
This tournament sure was...something. In the 14 years that I have followed the NCAA Tournament I have never seen it get this crazy before. This was a complete 180 from last year's Tournament, where we only had Blue Bloods in the Final Four, and a blue blood champion. This year, it is not the case. We have CHAOS.
Now, let us take a look at the failures, and boy do I have a few words for some teams here... Arizona Wildcats
- For the third year in a row, we have a 15 over 2 upset in the opening round. And Arizona was offered up as this year's sacrifice. To be fair, this isn't as big of an upset compared to other 15-over-2 upsets. Believe it or not, I actually saw this coming. The moment Princeton was announced as the opponent, I knew Arizona was gonna go down early. The Tigers just outplayed them and held strong throughout the entire game. Just like in 1996, when they upset defending national champion UCLA in the first round, the Tigers' next upset would unsurprisingly come against a Pac-12 team. Man, 15-over-2 upsets are becoming a staple in March Madness now...future 2 seeds better watch out... Virginia Cavaliers
- This was yet another upset most saw coming, but my god...I'm still stunned by this. Virginia was even leading for most of the game, but then they just imploded near the end. That turnover...what the hell was that?
I swear, Virginia must have sold it's soul for a National Title back in 2019... Iowa State Cyclones
- I swear, the Cyclones are like destined to bow out early in the tournament. It's as if its required by law for them to fall early no matter how high expectations are for them. It wasn't even a contest, the Panthers just straight up slaughtered them. Iowa State is one of the next contestants for my next Legacy of Failure script. But only IF they meet certain conditions...
At least the Cyclones lost to an 11 seed, and 11 seeds at least have moderate success in the tournament.
At least they're not these sorry sacks: Purdue's Boiler Explosion
- What the fuck. What. The fuck. WHAT. THE. FUCK. WAS. THAT. Don't get me wrong, I knew you weren't going to make the Final Four this year. I knew you were going to choke. But as a #1 SEED IN THE FIRST ROUND?! When you were favored by TWENTY FOUR TO WIN?!! Do you realize what you have just done?! This is quite possibly the greatest failure in the history of college sports! This was your ALL-IN year, and you fall to a double digit seed for the third year in a row? Absolutely unacceptable. Matt Painter is on a SEARING hot seat now.
One word, Purdue: NUKE.
Blow it up. You aren't winning with Painter. You aren't winning with this coaching staff. You aren't winning this core, and you aren't winning with these mentally fragile players who can't handle a shred of adversity.
Tick, tick, Painter and Lusk. It's time for a house cleaning in West Lafayette. Fucking Purdue... YOU BLEW IT!!! Memphis Tigers
- Penny Hardaway is getting Memphis on the right track. They won the AAC Tournament title over Houston, securing their second straight appearance in the Big Dance. But unfortunately, the Cinderella bug hit them, and it came in the form of Florida Atlantic, who won their first tournament game in school history. Memphis is still an interesting team nonetheless, and I'm eager to see how far Hardaway can take this team in the future. Iowa Hawkeyes
- Congratulations! Your team STILL can't make it past the first weekend of the tournament! This time you get rekt by Auburn. Fran McCaffrey continues to show that he cannot survive come March Madness despite his regular season successes. Iowa, if I were you I would find a new coach already. Fran is not the man. Texas A&M Aggies
- The Aggies had a solid regular season. They came close to winning the SEC Tournament title but got decimated by Alabama. Is this football or basketball I'm covering here? I'm confused. Anyway, it really seemed as if the Aggies had it in them to go on a reasonable run as they were a 7 seed, but then they went to Des Moines and got blown the fuck out by a team that hadn't won a tournament game in 22 years. The failure is always bigger in Texas... USC Trojans
- Despite losing the other Mobley brother to the draft last offseason, the Trojans still snuck their way into the Big Dance yet again. Unfortunately, Tom Izzo's Spartans killed any hopes they had of a deep run. The Trojans failed to conquer Sparta, and it's time for me to break out this scene from 300 again... Providence Friars
- After making the Sweet 16 last year, the Friars had another good team this season and were ranked for most of the latter half of the season. But unfortunately, Kentucky remembered last year's upset at the hands of Saint Peter's and decided to kill any hopes the Friars had of a deep run. Baylor Bears
- Once again, Baylor fails to make it past the second round. Despite maintaining most of the 2021 National Championship roster the Bears still cannot find it in themselves to get past the first weekend again. It wasn't even a contest, Creighton flat out controlled the tempo for the entire game. 2021 had better not have been a fluke for your guys... Fairleigh Dickinson Knights
- Congrats, FDU! You became the 2nd #16 seed to beat a #1! Your consolation prize is blowing a late lead to Florida Atlantic in round two. Eh, who cares. You still pulled off the upset. The fact that this only happened 5 years after UMBC's stunning upset over Virginia is the most shocking fact about this too. Now, no #1 seed is safe. We are entering a period in the tournament where even the lowest seeds are now potential contenders. It'll be interesting to see how 2024's tournament goes... Saint Mary's Gaels
- Ah, it's that other WCC team. Congrats on winning another tournament game! Your prize is to get absolutely slaughtered by UConn. Great... Penn State Nittany Lions
- Congrats, Penn State! You won your first tournament game in 22 years! Even though you took the Longhorns to the limit, a big run just wasn't in the cards for you this year. Can we grant another tournament win to Penn State and put them in the Sweet 16 instead of Texas? They deserve it a lot more than Purdue... Pittsburgh Panthers
- Congrats, Pitt! You returned to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 7 years! You even won a tournament game too! Though all good things must come to an end, and you get upended by Xavier. Indiana Hoosiers
- What in the literal fuck was that supposed to be? Weren't you supposed to make a big run this year? This was the best team you've had in almost a decade and you just decided to crumble like that?! Sure, Miami was playing the game of their lives but it still shouldn't have been a 16-point blowout. Well, could be worse I guess. You could be Purdue... Kentucky Wildcats
- Let's start with the good news first: You were not upset in the first round this time. Instead you get eliminated by your old friends from K-State yet again. Which is good because we don't have to deal with more arrogance from the Kentucky fanbase this time. Nobody likes Kentucky anyway, so there was much rejoicing. Duke Blue Devils
- Even with Coach K no longer in the College Basketball world, the Blue Devils still manage to appear in the NCAA Tournament as a reasonably high seed. They managed to end Oral Roberts' foolish ambitions in the first round (I really wanted to make more sex jokes from that...), but then got absolutely BTFOd by Tennessee in the next round. The Evil Empire has been stopped yet again. But they'll be back here again. The Blue Devils never stay down for long... Marquette Golden Eagles
- HOW MANY TIMES DO WE HAVE TO TEACH YOU THIS LESSON, OLD MAN?! Once again, Shaka Smart cannot make it past the first weekend of the tournament. Tom Izzo's Spartans put him in his place yet again. For fuck's sake, it's been a DECADE since Smart's coaching schemes got exposed by John Beilein in 2013. And he still has not gotten the message. Did I ever tell you what the definition of insanity is, Mr. Smart? Auburn Tigers
- Thanks for allowing us to laugh at Iowa again, Auburn. Now enjoy getting slaughtered by Houston in the next round. Kansas Jayhawks
- For the second year in a row, the defending national champion falls in the second round. Kansas appeared as if they would have this game in the bag, as they led by as much as 10 throughout the game. But then the team just imploded. The Razorbacks fought their way back and managed to eke out the win in the final seconds. Cherish that championship, Kansas. It may be the only one you win for a while. TCU Horned Frogs
- It seems like TCU sports are on the rise as of late. Their football team made the College Football Playoff, and their basketball team entered the tournament as a #6 seed! They even won another tournament game! But unfortunately they failed to make us laugh at Gonzaga again, as the Bulldogs narrowly escaped with the win. Northwestern Wildcats
- Welcome back to the tournament again, Northwestern! Even though this is only your second NCAA tournament appearance, you managed to win another tournament game! But a deep run just wasn't in the cards for you this time. Even after giving UCLA all they could handle, it just wasn't enough. I hope the Wildcats are able to make it back here again someday. Chris Collins seems to have something good going at Evanston. Let's see how things go the next few years. Missouri Tigers
- Congrats, Missouri! You won your first tournament game in 13 years! Your reward is to get absolutely blown the fuck out by another set of Tigers...who were seeded 15th. Come on now. Sure, Princeton was playing the game of their lives, but it still shouldn't have been a 15-point blowout. You're one of the contestants for a future Legacy of Failure script, Missouri. Give me something to truly laugh at and it'll be icing on the cake. Maryland Terrapins
- I'm gonna save the Big Bill Hell's rant this time. The Terps seemed to put a decent fight in the first half, but the Crimson Tide decided that was far enough, and put them out of their misery. Princeton Tigers
- Congrats, Princeton! You returned to the Sweet 16 for the first time in 56 years, and are only the fourth 15 seed to reach the Sweet 16! Third one in a row to do so, in fact! But all good things must come to an end, and there was another team looking to end their own demons. Creighton returned to the Elite Eight for the first time since the year Pearl Harbor happened. Alabama Crimson Tide
- The third #1 seed to fall this tournament. The Tide controlled the tempo most of the game, but the Aztecs eventually took the lead and never looked back. Once again, Alabama's dream to be a champion in both football and basketball like Michigan did in 1989 has not come to fruition. Maybe next year? Tennessee Volunteers
- Tennessee manages to return to the Sweet 16. And that's as far as they go. It's time for them to be upset by an inferior team again, and this time it's Florida Atlantic. The only time it appeared as if the Vols controlled the game was in the first half. But then FAU decided they wanted to go further. They took the lead in the second half, even leading by as much as 10 points, but they didn't relinquish it, making their first ever Elite Eight. Michigan State Spartans
- Congratulations! Your team finally made it past the second round! But the Sweet 16 is as far as you go. And they screwed up big time. This was yet another game where MSU's opponent was doing their best to hand the game to them, but they once again couldn't capitalize on their mistakes. K-State was literally handing them the game on a silver platter. They blew multiple leads and were even pushed into overtime. They even let you stay in the game until the final seconds! But then you just had to fuck up and let Markquis Nowell dance on your ashes, even letting him make NCAA history in the process. Houston Cougars
- What the hell was that, Houston? That has got to be arguably the worst performance by a 1 seed in the Sweet 16 in recent memory! This was the best team you've had since the days of Phi Slama Jama, and you go and do THAT?! Jesus Christ, you're pathetic. It wasn't even a contest, Miami barely even had to fucking try! Well, at least you're joining a real conference in the Big 12 next season. Hopefully the opponents from that conference can toughen you up and make you more formidable in next year's tournament. Xavier Musketeers
- Congrats, Xavier! You returned to the Sweet 16 for the first time in six years! Enjoy getting absolutely mauled by the Longhorns. UCLA Bruins
- Now this was a shock to see. This was the absolute inverse of 2006. The Bruins build up a big lead, only for Gonzaga to come back and build a big lead...only for the Bruins to storm right back and go up by 1. Maybe this is a repeat of 2006? "Strawther for the lead...BULLSEYE!!!!"
And the Bulldogs have finally gotten their proper revenge for 2006, where they lost in the West region after blowing a big lead in the Sweet 16. Adam Morrison laughs, and the rest of the country breaths a sigh of relief as they don't have to see Los Angeles win another championship. Arkansas Razorbacks
- Great job, Arkansas! You managed to knock off the defending national champions! Your prize is to get absolutely steamrolled by UConn in the next round...by 23 points. Great... Creighton Bluejays
- Congrats, Creighton! You returned to the Elite Eight for the first time since WORLD WAR II!! And you're on the verge of becoming the first team from Nebraska to make the Final Four, beating out even the Cornhuskers! Imagine that! But it was not to be. The Bluejays built up a decent lead, and were on the verge of becoming the first #6 seed to make the Final Four since the Fab Five Michigan squad in 1992. But they couldn't hold it, as the Aztecs slowly crawled their way back. The Bluejays didn't really make any big mistakes, they didn't foul all that much, but at the end of the day it wasn't enough. They nearly sent the game into OT, but then...a last second foul call gave the Aztecs new life (Refball? You decide.
). They would lose by a point. They were THAT close. But I honestly can't be mad at them. Still a successful season though. Hopefully next year you can get over the hump. Kansas State Wildcats
- I swear to god, K-State has to be the most unlucky team in NCAA Tournament history. This was their NINTH trip to the Elite Eight since their last Final Four berth in 1964 and they fell just short yet again. And like in 2010 and 2018, it was to a Cinderella team. First it was Butler. Then it was Sister Jean's henchmen from Loyola-Chicago. Now, it was FAU. Despite having a strong roster, the Wildcats once again could not end their long Final Four drought. Folks like to talk about Purdue being unlucky, but I think the real bridesmaid here is K-State. Just absolutely brutal. Which is why they're a candidate for my next Legacy of Failure script. Texas Longhorns
- This was very much a Days of our Steelers season for Longhorns basketball. Head coach Chris Beard was axed following an incident where he beat his wife (FUCKING IDIOT
), and assistant Rodney Terry had to step in and clean up the mess. Thankfully, it was a good hire. Terry helped guide the Longhorns to their best season in ages, as they returned to the Elite Eight for the first time in 15 years. It appeared as if they were on the verge of returning to the Final Four for the first time in two decades! But then, the team straight up SHAT THE BED. Texas could not get anything going at all near the end of the game, as the Hurricanes came back from 13 points down to make their first Final Four. YOU BLEW IT!!!
Though lets be honest here, the refs were absolute dogshit. Calling blatant offensive fouls as fouls on the player guarding, are you fucking kidding me? Still, the Longhorns did screw up and blow that lead. Blame the refs all you want, but you want to know what would have helped? Not blowing a 13 point lead late in the second half. But at least Rodney Terry has shown that he can coach. Hopefully he can lead this Texas team to new heights in the future. Gonzaga Bulldogs
- pukes uncontrollably
Fucking hell, are you kidding me? What the hell were you doing all game long? This was your ALL-IN year. You were the top scoring team in the country. You had the best player in the nation in Drew Timme! And you got absolutely beaten to a pulp by the team that beat you in your first Elite Eight appearance 24 years ago. Sure, UConn was playing the game of their lives, but it still shouldn't have been a near-30 point slaughter. You managed to unleash the Pandora's Box of Locusts known as UConn fans on the College Basketball world. Your Legacy of Failure continues. UConn is still getting the best of you after all these years, eh? Florida Atlantic Owls
- Oh my god, it's going to happen! The Owls are about to make history! They're up by 14! Sure the Aztecs cut that lead down to 1 in the final seconds, not to mention the refs are absolute shit, but the Owls are about to make history and become the first 9 seed to make the National Championship! Let's hear it for FAU! "They don't have their scorers on the floor...it's Butler, with 2 seconds, he's gotta put it up and...-buzzer sounds- HE WINS IT!!! HE WINS IT WITH THE JUMPER!!! A San Diego State Miracle!"
OH MY MERCIFUL GOD!!! Well, this sucks. But it was still a successful season nonetheless. The third 9 seed to ever make the Final Four, and it happened in your second NCAA tournament appearance! Well, you'll be joining a better conference in the AAC next year. Hopefully you can make another big run like this again someday. Miami Hurricanes
- Congrats, Miami! You made your first Final Four in school history! And then the fun stops. UConn comes in to spoil the day. I would rip on Miami here, but nothing went right for them at all this game. Nothing. Missing 14 layups in the second half? Christ, that's brutal. Even though Jim Larrañaga tried his best to get Miami's stars on the right track, they were no match for the Huskies. Whenever Miami tried to strike back, UConn said 'Nope!' and put the Hurricanes on lockdown for the rest of the game. Nonetheless, this was a good run for Miami this year. You'll be back here eventually. Whew, that was a crazy tournament. Now we're finally down to only two. And only one of these teams will be walking away with a championship.
Let's bring out contestant number one...
The Huskies have returned to the National Championship for the fifth time in school history, and for the first time in almost a decade. The last time they were here, the Final Four was held in the other major Texas metropolis of Dallas-Ft. Worth, and the Huskies became the first 7 seed in NCAA Tournament history to win a National Championship. Now, they are here for more.
The face of this revived UConn squad has been Jordan Hawkins, a sophomore from Maryland who has been this team's leading scorer in their past two matchups against Arkansas and Gonzaga, and it has been a long road for him. During the season opener he suffered his second concussion in his playing career and had to sit out the first two games, but he has thankfully made a full recovery and is playing better than ever. Joining him has been African sensation Adama Sanogo, a two-time first-team All-Big East award winner. He and Hawkins have been the bread and butter of this UConn squad, as both have been leading the team in scoring in a majority of games this season. Sanogo has also been this team's rebounding machine, as he has led the team in rebounds in all four of their tournament games so far. Rounding out UConn's Big 3 has been Andre Jackson Jr., who has been the Assists leader for this team in 18 games including the NCAA Tournament.
UConn has been the hottest team in this tournament thus far, as they've won each of their first four games by at least 10 points or more. Iona? 14-point win. #5 St. Mary's? 15 point win. #8 Arkansas, who just took down the defending national champs? 23 point win. #3 seed Gonzaga, who had three-time consensus All-American Drew Timme? Doesn't matter to them, they won by 28. #5 Miami? Even though the Hurricanes tried to put up a fight, they were beaten by 13. This Huskies team is absolutely unstoppable. The last two teams who won their first five tournament games by double digits both went on to win the national title - North Carolina in 2009, and Villanova in 2018. And it looks like history is about to repeat itself. UConn is hungry for it's fifth national title.
This #4 seed is playing like a #1 seed, and they are for sure the favorite to win it all. Just like every other time UConn has a solid team in the tournament, it's National Championship or bust.
Prepare for their wrath.
But not if their opponents have anything to say about it...
San Diego State Aztecs
The Aztecs have made it to the National Championship game. Exactly as everyone predicted at the start of the tournament. What this team reminds me of is the drug addict that has had numerous chances to get his shit together but constantly relapsed every time. And it's only through a reflection and a last second intervention that he starts to get clean.
For a while it felt as if San Diego State would never make it here. Former Michigan head coach Steve Fisher and his longtime assistant Brian Dutcher spent YEARS building this team into a contender. And the Aztecs have put up many elite teams over the years, but could only go as far as the Sweet 16 at best.
2011 seemed to be their year. They fell to UConn. In 2014, they were a 4 seed. They fell to Arizona. And after a series of first and second round eliminations, they finally got over the hump and made it to the promised land, though just BARELY.
This run has been far from easy for the Aztecs. They escaped by 7 points against Charleston in the first round. In the second they destroyed Furman, who just upset Virginia. Then came the Sweet 16, their opponent was the overall #1 seed in Alabama. It looked like another early exit for the Aztecs again. But then, a miracle happened. They rallied from 9 points down in the second half against Alabama to take the lead for good and make their first ever Elite Eight. And in their first Elite Eight, Creighton pushed them to the limit. However, they managed to overcome another deficit and escape by the skin of their teeth in the last second (Refball? You decide.). Same case in their first ever Final Four. They trailed by fourteen against Florida Atlantic, and it felt as if that was it. But then, the Aztecs pulled off another miracle to win by 1. That miracle's name? Lamont Butler. This team is the Energizer Bunny of the tournament. They will not die no matter how much stress you put on them.
SDSU's sudden appearance in the National Championship feels less like a "Glad you made it here!" and more of a "FINALLY!!". Considering all of the elite talent and top-tier coaching they've possessed over the years, it's still surprising that it took them this long to get here. But hey, better late than never.
Fuck you, Spanos!
The face of this San Diego State team has been Matt Bradley, a two-time First-team All-Mountain West selection. Alongside him is Ghanaian sensation Nathan Mensah, who is known for his immense wingspan of 7'4 ft, and has led this team in rebounds in two of their four wins this tournament. Other standouts on this Aztecs team include Jaedon LeDee, Micah Parrish, Darion Trammell, and Lamont Butler, who has led the team in Assists this tournament.
Brian Dutcher has built a winner this tournament, but we all know what his ultimate goal is - a National Championship. Though it wouldn't be his first. His first title came with the 1989 Michigan team led by Glen Rice and Rumeal Robinson, where he was an assistant under Coach Fisher. Now he's looking to win one as a head coach.
The Aztecs seek to become the first team from California to win a national title in basketball since 1995. That year, UCLA won their 11th National Title in school history by knocking off the "40 Minutes of Hell" Arkansas squad, a rather formidable opponent on par with this UConn team. And no team from California has done it since.
Will San Diego State be the team to break that drought, and become the fourth team from the Golden State to win a National Title? Will they become the first non-power five conference team to win a National Title since UNLV did it in 1990?
Will the Aztecs become the first team from San Diego to win a championship in either the pros or college, and break the San Diego sports curse?
And so, here it is. The Big East Empire of Doom, versus the Mountain West's only hope!
Time for battle.
EPIC NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP JINXING
Unfortunately, there will be no miracles this time. I think UConn has this one in the bag. They've been destroying their opponents with ease, like North Carolina and Villanova before them. No matter what you throw at them, they'll just push it aside like a cardboard box. Their 28-point win over a stacked Gonzaga team is proof of this. They always seem to have an answer for whatever their opponents throw at them, and therefore the choice is easy.
UConn will steamroll the Aztecs by at least 10 points and cruise to a 5th National Championship, tying with both Duke and Indiana for the fourth most championships.
Have a nice day.

2023.04.02 06:58 black-knight-13 UA Superstar: Skyler Clairmont aka Amelia Bright
Real Name: Skyler Clairmont
Stage Name: Amelia Bright
Appearance: Light auburn hair, hazel colored eyes, light skin tone, athletic figure, a small mole on the corner of her right eye.
Clothing: White skirt, black knee-socks, black knee-high boots, short-sleeved yellow shirt, black jean jacket, charm necklace around her neck, and usually wears pink sunglasses on top of her head.
Personality: Kind, loving, easy-going, optimistic, determined, loyal to her friends, driven for her dreams, loves helping others, a natural peacemaker, and isn't afraid to throw a few punches when the time calls for it.
Quirk: Echo Illusion. Skyler's Quirk allows her to create realistic illusions through her vocal cords. She can manipulate sound vibrations that come near her and transmute them into light waves which allows her to produce her illusions. Her illusions are so realistic that a person can actually touch them and feel them but they can disappear as quickly as they are created. She can also summon shields from sound and light waves as well as cause a person physical anomalies such as nausea, headaches, and confusion by the use of the waves she manipulates.
Quirk Drawbacks: If Skyler is somehow anyway unable to use her voice then her Quirk is rendered useless. And while her Quirk can affect a person physically if they are able to push past those feelings then Skyler is susceptible to attacks.
Dazzle Flash: Skyler sings and summons a ring of light around herself to use as a distraction that blinds her enemies.
Echo Illusion: Named after her Quirk, Skyler uses her voice to summon a large troop of armored warriors in front of her to act as fighters and guards.
Sounds of the Forest: Skyler creates a forest illusion that serves as a confusing landscape that confuses her opponent. The longer the person stays in the forest, the more it will affect their mind.
Lyrical Angel: Skyler summons a pair of gossamer wings from her back and uses that to fly around and escape from attacks. But they only last a short time.
Hero Name: The Musical Hero: Madonna
Hero Costume: Pink and red bodysuit with musical notes and lines decorating the edges of it, a pink corset wrapped around her waist, black boots with metallic protectors, fingerless, elbow-length gloves with metallic gauntlets on them that carry grappling hooks and brass knuckles. A long hooded coat with slits by the legs is over her body, a set of batons are carried on her legs which she can combine into one weapon, and a rather fabulous masquerade mask is over her eyes. She also carries some medicinal products on her belt if she needs them in the field after overusing her Quirk.
Background: For most people. Skyler is only known by her stage name Amelia Bright. Hardly anyone knows her real name save for her bandmates and her manager. From a very young age, Skyler's singing abilities were evident which made it fairly easy for her to get a contract to be a singer which was a blessing for her given her family's poor social status. Her family didn't have much of anything really but everyone in her family always felt better whenever she sang. Ever since she was discovered she spent her entire life on the road being a star, going on tour, signing autographs, and performing on stages all over the world. Despite her status as a star, Skyler loved giving back. Since her family struggled immensely during her childhood, giving back to people who had been hit by hard times was very important to her so she participated in as many charities as she could.
One day while she was in Japan for a tour, her tour bus was attacked by a group of villains that wanted to kidnap her. While she was assisted by heroes, some of the villains captured her and tied her up. While she was trying to escape, she was rescued by a young man who saw that she was in trouble and saved her. That young man sparked something in her that she didn't expect. She saw that she could do so much more if she was a hero instead of a singer, using her gifts to help people who thought that they weren't noticed by anyone.

2023.04.02 02:54 starryboi98 So your route got RRECed...
Alright guys, the moment we've all been waiting for: The Rural Route Evaluation Compensation System!
Wait, its dogshit? For real? Damn ok. Well, lets take a gander at what you can do about that
WHAT YOU CANNOT DO IS VIOLATE US FEDERAL LAW. A STRIKE, "SICKOUT", SLOWDOWN, OR ANY VARIATION OF THAT VIOLATES ARTICLE 18 OF THE CONTRACT AND US FEDERAL LAW ( 18 U.S.C. 1918 ). DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES THINK OF ANY THING LIKE THIS.
For the 34% of you who didn't get their evals yanked into the 1930s, congratulations! Be prepared to do it again.
For the rest of you, the road ahead is rocky, but with some trusty shenanigans, you can make your complaint heard!
Today, you (should, if you didn't, please immediately contact your District Representative!) received your PS Form 4241-As which show you, well, fuck you, your route is now a 31H. FIRST THING: Review the categories, and if you see any 0s in the stuff that management should have included, well, damn, that means you have an issue that was beyond your control!If you see 0 in boxholders and WSS flats... you have no one to blame but yourself....
After reviewing your PS Form 4241-A, you should request your PS Form 4241-M! This will look like an excel spreadsheet that those nerds who work in offices continuously work on at all times. 144 standards! Check for any 0s on that form, and highlight them if you wish (or don't, i aint ya mama). THEN
Ask management for a PS Form 8191. This is a grievance form! You should file a grievance, wording to some effect of "did management properly evaluate my route?". When Management takes this personally, because you know they will, let them know that you know none of this is their fault (and it isn't! Do not be angry at your low level supes and postmasters, they just work here!), and this is to provide information for the National Step 4 Dispute of Evaluations.
Then, mail your grievance, along with a copy of your 4241-A and 4241-M, to your steward (to those of you with local stewards, give it directly to them you lucky fucks).
And then wait. Because that's all there is to do. Perhaps brush up on your RRECS knowledge! I will post an explanation of the 24 Rural Activity Scans in the comment section of this and pin it.

2023.04.02 01:39 wigglemonstah China saved Sri Lanka from the Western debt trap
A tweet by the Chinese Embassy in Sri Lanka sums it up
In 2017, Sri Lankan gov't decided to raise much-needed dollars by leasing out the Hambantota Port and used the cash infusion to pay back due International Sovereign Bonds (ISB), not to pay off China Eximbank. In other words, China saved Sri Lanka from the Western "Debt Trap".
An article by The Atlantic backs up what the tweet says
In 2015, Sri Lanka had steep payments on international sovereign bonds, nearly 40% of Sri Lanka's external debt. It owed more to Japan, the World Bank, and the Asian Development Bank than to China. Of the $4.5 billion in debt service in 2017, only 5% was Hambantota's. Sri Lanka's Central Bank said that Hambantota, and Chinese finance in general, was not the source of the country’s financial distress.
Canada's leading engineering and construction firm carried out a study that recommended building the port through a joint-venture agreement between the Sri Lanka Ports Authority and a "private consortium" on a build-own-operate-transfer basis, a type of project in which a single company receives a contract to undertake all the steps required to get such a port up and running, and then gets to operate it when it is.
There was never a default. A bailout from the IMF was arranged, much-needed dollars were raised by leasing out the underperforming Hambantota Port to an experienced company -- just as the Canadians had recommended. The only two bids came from China Merchants and China Harbor -- Sri Lanka chose China Merchants, making it the majority shareholder with a 99-year lease, and used the $1.12 billion cash infusion to bolster its foreign reserves.
Furthermore, China is economically developing Sri Lanka
In the 2000s-2010s China invested substantially in Sri Lanka and was one of the largest investors. It built a national theater and infrastructure linked to the Belt and Road Initiative such as the Port of Hambantota, the Hambantota International Airport, the Norocholai Power Station and the Port City Colombo project
And the media never mentions that the port is the only example of this sort
A study found only one case of asset seizure, the oft-cited Hambantota Port in Sri Lanka, and said that China is more likely to restructure or write-off the debt.
The Atlantic article above says that even the port wasn't an asset seizure:
Our research shows that Chinese banks are willing to restructure the terms of existing loans and have never actually seized an asset from any country, much less the port of Hambantota
China writes off debts regularly. e.g.
Xi: "For those of Africa's least developed countries, heavily indebted and poor countries, landlocked developing countries and small island developing countries that have diplomatic relations with China, the debt they have incurred in the form of interest-free Chinese government loans due to mature by the end of 2018 will be exempted"
Same in 2021
#China will exempt the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) in #Africa from debt incurred in the form of interest-free Chinese government loans due by the end of 2021.

2023.04.02 01:39 NameTheEpithet A love letter to life
This started as a study of songs about parenthood that I was going to listen to when I needed to feel empowered as a father.
But as I started to compile these songs and listened to them to figure out structure I found myself crying, for the love of my mother. So I started exploring the songs that express the feelings I was having for my own mother. Now I had these 2 foils of music, loving your child, loving your mom. And I decided to keep on this thread of the path of life. So I wanted to add some beautiful love songs without beating the listener over the head with songs like Whitney Houston lol. Lastly then it only seemed obvious to dig into the "The end." The esoteric concept of living and reflecting on loss. I had puff daddy in this section but that damn song is too long. And finally a little dylan to inspire the listener to recognize they are a participant in the playlist.
I hope you like or appreciate... https://open.spotify.com/playlist/1iu0E2R6vkAN34l2guDgHw?si=l8P49ESYRNeNGLo4oRDe1w

2023.04.01 21:57 StrivingJarl The Sins Of Our Fathers - Chapter 5
If you want to read the full chapter, please go to AO3!
THE SINS OF OUR FATHERS - A DDMA WHAT-IF? STORY Chapter 5: Recruitment \November 9th, 2017. Mirai Household, around 6:57 AM.\
After finishing his preparations for the school day, Itsuki sits down on the couch, talking with Yuka over the phone, while Narumi gets ready to head off for her office job. The redheaded boy is in his school uniform, while his mother’s work attire consists of a white dress with yellow accents, black leggings, and white heels. She’s also got a white coat on.
In terms of the call between Itsuki and Yuka, the two siblings are talking about the situation with Natsuki and her father, with the older sister having been informed about it last night while at her College apartment in Osaka, working on some class assignments.
She was feeling pretty tired when she got the call from her younger brother, so she wasn’t adamant on talking for too long, believing it wasn’t gonna be a serious conversation. However, she was quickly proven wrong as Itsuki decided to just say it straight up. “Natsuki’s being abused by her father, and I need your help to get her out.”
And just like that, it almost felt like any fatigue in Yuka’s body vanished, and was replaced with shock, anger, and concern all at once. She only really talked with the pink girl a few times during Summer Break in August, when she came back to Salvato City to spend time with Narumi and Itsuki, alongside a few friends. It was also when she learned about her.
See, like many sibling relationships, Yuka and Itsuki had a tendency to mess with one another, either through words or actions. In particular, the younger sibling often teased the older one about the boys she was interested in, which really got on her nerves at times. It also didn’t help that many of the boys she dates either end up as just friends after some time, or turn out to be dicks.
So, Yuka was eager to tease Itsuki back with any girl that might become his girlfriend given enough time. One of those being Aiko, which the younger brother didn’t pick up on until he was straight up told by him a few weeks after joining the Literature Club. However, until his Senior Year, the redheaded boy never showed any sort of romantic interest in anyone, female or not.
Natsuki, however, was the first one to start catching his attention. And Itsuki knew the moment he told Yuka, she was gonna pay him back for all that teasing he did to her when it came to her boy crushes. Which he was correct to assume, as she did exactly that. But it died down, and she decided to help her younger brother with confessing to this girl.
However, aside from what she was told, Yuka didn’t have the best grasp of Natsuki’s personality. She knew she was snarky and aggressive, but also caring and gentle deep down, but not much else than that. So, she felt she had to see her for herself at some point. And eventually, when Itsuki invited the pink tsundere to hang out again, Yuka was able to see the girl who stole her brother’s heart.
Honestly? She found Natsuki interesting. But…also a little strange. She definitely had quite the attitude, and was admittedly good-looking. However, she noticed just how small and skinny she was, wondering if she was eating properly. And judging by how fast she ate her food, and how tired she looked at times, Yuka felt that might have been the case. But she wasn’t too sure, since…what did she know? They barely knew each other.
She also seemed very ill-tempered at points, despite meaning well under that tough exterior. Yuka never saw the worst of it, but she wondered if she was being treated right back home, or if there was something wrong going on with her. But again, she barely knew Natsuki, so she couldn’t just jump to conclusions.
Not to mention…one time, Yuka suggested she, Itsuki, and Natsuki all go to the beach and have some fun. But despite stating she used to love going there as a kid, the pink girl refused to go with that idea. Did she develop some kind of condition that kept her from doing this kind of stuff? Was she not confident in her body? Or…?
These signs were definitely concerning to Yuka, but she felt it wasn’t her place to try and call Natsuki out or anything. For all she knew, it wasn’t that big a deal, and if it was, Itsuki would help her take care of it. After all, her little brother is always willing to help people, even if he may mess up or go too far at points.
So, when Yuka moved back to Osaka to continue her pursuit of a career in Criminal Justice, she put these concerned thoughts about Natsuki into the back of her mind, since she had her own concerns at the moment. But every once in a while, she wonders…”What is the deal with Natsuki Gushiken?” However, she never figured it out for the longest time.
And now that she knows the truth? Well…she feels the same as her mother and brother about the situation. She wants to help Natsuki however she can, and beat her father into a bloody pulp. But obviously, they couldn’t do exactly that, so right now, they’re discussing what to do as they talk on the phone. Yuka:
“So, Natsuki’s gonna tell Yuri and Aiko about this?” Itsuki:
“That’s the plan. Though, when she’ll do that, I’m not sure.” Itsuki:
“Obviously, it’d be good to take care of it today, but…Natsuki might need some time to figure it out.” Yuka:
“Makes sense. It takes a lot to tell someone your problems.” Yuka:
“Also, I was planning on heading back home around December 9th or so, but if you need me to, I could come back a little earlier.” Itsuki:
“You sure? What about your work?” Yuka:
“Pssh! I can always take care of it online, and let my teachers know something came up!” Yuka:
“Besides…this takes higher priority.” Yuka:
“I wanted to do Criminal Justice in order to help people like Natsuki. So…this is almost like a way to see if I’ve got what it takes.” Yuka:
“Sure, it won’t be the exact same experience, but…it’s still good to test my skills.” Itsuki:
“Heh. And that’s why your help is needed.” Itsuki:
“That, and more help is always good.” Yuka:
“While I’m at it, how’s Mom handling this?”
For a moment, Itsuki doesn’t speak as he looks over to the kitchen table to see Mom checking her belongings in her black purse, focused. Then, he goes back to talking to Yuka. Itsuki:
“From what I’ve seen so far, she’s handling it well.” Itsuki:
“Though, I can tell she’s a little more tense than usual.” Yuka:
“Like…Goro tense?” Itsuki:
“...Maybe not that much, but getting there.” Yuka:
“And what about you?” Itsuki:
“Eh…I’m feeling uneasy about everything, but…I’m doing what I can to stay calm and do what has to be done.” Yuka:
Hearing Itsuki’s words causes Yuka to stay silent for a bit, feeling concerned about whether her younger brother can take good care of this situation. After all, when he was younger, he was quite the hothead, and didn’t always think things through, which led to plenty of trouble. Especially with…someone they were familiar with…
And while Itsuki’s much better about his temperament nowadays, his older sister can tell deep down, he’s got his fair share of frustrations and doubts. So, when dealing with an abusive father, who’s been hurting his crush for years on end, it could go horribly wrong if he’s not being watched. And the last thing Yuka wants to see is her family getting hurt.
However, she knows nothing is gonna happen for now, and when things start getting serious, she’ll be there to help out. Yuka will always be there for the people she loves, even if they make plenty of mistakes along the way. So, with an audible sigh, she decides not to question her brother any further. Yuka:
“...Alright. Just don’t do anything stupid.” Itsuki:
“I won’t.” Yuka:
“Now, I should get going. Classes are gonna start soon.” Itsuki:
“Me too. Talk to you later.” Yuka:
After that exchange, the call ends, and Itsuki turns his phone off, before putting it into his jean pocket. As he gets up from the couch, picking up his school bag on the coffee table, Narumi approaches him, fully prepared to head out. Narumi:
“So? Anything of note?” Itsuki:
“Just that she’s willing to come here earlier if we need her to. And she didn’t want me to do anything stupid.” Narumi:
“Sounds about right. You doing stupid stuff would screw us all over.” Itsuki:
“When is doing stupid stuff EVER helpful?” Narumi:
“Heh. Good point.”
The two smile a bit, before hearing someone knock on the front door. So, Itsuki takes a few steps towards it, and comes to find his best friend, Aiko Omoshiroi, standing on the doormat. He has an upbeat smile, and waves a hand up to greet Itsuki and Narumi. Aiko:
“Hey, Itsu! Hey, Narumi!” Itsuki:
“Morning, Aiks.” Narumi:
“Good to see you, Aiko.” Aiko:
“You too! So, are we gonna get going?” Itsuki:
“Sure. Let’s go.” Narumi:
“Want a ride?” Aiko:
“Thanks, but I’ll pass! I wanna enjoy the sights on the way there!” Narumi:
“Alright. Just be safe, you two.” Itsuki:
“Please! There’s not much that happens in our neighborhood!” Narumi:
“Still doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be careful, Itsuki.”
Itsuki just nods, as he and Aiko say their farewells to Narumi for the morning, and go their usual path to Salvato High School. At this point, the two could probably do it in their sleep. They knew where to go for the quicker routes, and the different landmarks throughout. However, they just took their time, since it wasn’t gonna take too long to get to school.
First, there was obviously Itsuki and Aiko’s neighborhood. Their homes weren’t too far away from one another, which makes it easy for them to come by whenever they want or need to. And there were plenty of houses with different shapes and colors.
For example, Itsuki’s house had a rectangular-shape, being a one-story house, and had a pale yellow color. Aiko’s house, on the other hand, had a tilted roof, since the bottom floor of the house went a little under the ground, while also having a baby blue color. There was also variety in terms of the people, and other things to be found in the neighborhood.
Some liked to walk their dogs around. Itsuki and Aiko loved to pet them as they came by, becoming acquainted with their owners and having a small chat with them before moving on. There was also this elderly couple who liked to tend to their front lawn in the morning, and they treated many of their neighbors with an almost sickening sweetness. Itsuki and Aiko were no exception, and they were even offered treats sometimes when they passed by.
However, there were certainly some questionable people as well. Not necessarily bad, but not necessarily good either. Like a 30 year old man who always got really pissy when people tried to mess with anything on his property. Most notably, his fancy car. There was one time where Aiko tried doing exactly that, and needless to say, his mother promptly chewed her out for it.
Plus, there was this 50 year old woman with big, messy hair who had 5 kids of various ages. She seemed to have a few issues, and when interacting with others, she had the tendency to lash out a bit. In particular, when Itsuki and Yuka were trying out some new bikes, the former accidentally crashed into her garbage can, leading to her getting very angry with him. And later on, Narumi had to talk with her, which ended with her coming back home in a bad mood.
But regardless, there was plenty of great stuff to see in this neighborhood outside of the people and homes. Many trees and bushes were visible throughout the place, as their leaves were blown off by the wind and littering the road in a sea of brown, orange, yellow, and red. Along with it, a couple of bugs were going around as well, like flies and cockroaches, which made Itsuki uncomfortable.
Anyways, after Itsuki and Aiko’s neighborhood, there’s simply the downtown district of Salvato City, which then leads to the school building. That’s when the two had to stick close together in order to not run into too many people, since the sidewalks had a bunch of them going around, making their daily commute, alongside the many cars driving on the road.
And throughout, there were different shops, like a children’s candy store, a place where they sold bikes and other things for kids to ride on, and a nice antiques shop run by a kind old man. If they had the time before or after school, or if it was a day off, Itsuki and Aiko would check out these shops for a bit, and maybe even buy something.
Then, when they’ve gone past all that, they reach the back of the Salvato High School building, where they proceed to go around it to enter the front gates. It may not seem too special, but to Itsuki and Aiko, it felt relaxed and intimate, in a weird way. And with their Senior Year coming to a close, they sometimes get a little upset about the fact that they won’t be able to do this anymore.
Regardless, as the two go ahead with their usual walk, Aiko is eager as always to start up a conversation with Itsuki. Aiko:
“So, I was thinking…I don’t really have anything exciting going on this weekend.” Aiko:
“Maybe I could swing by your house, and we can play some games?” Itsuki:
“Heh. That would definitely be nice. I could use some time to relax and have fun.” Aiko:
“Really now? Dealing with something big at the moment?” Itsuki:
“Pretty much. Can’t say, sadly.” Aiko:
“Oh, come on! You know I can keep a secret!” Aiko:
“Is it something to do with Natsuki? You two looked like you saw a ghost back during Poem Sharing on Tuesday.” Itsuki:
“It is…but again, I can’t tell you anything here.” Aiko:
“It’s cool. As long as you two aren’t, like…I dunno…” Aiko:
“...Doing drugs?” Itsuki:
“Pfft! I think if that was the case, it’d be WAY more obvious!” Aiko:
“Good point. Maybe instead…”
Seeing a mischievous smile on Aiko’s face, Itsuki puts on an unamused look, knowing what he’s gonna joke about. Aiko:
“...You two spent a lovely evening together?” ; ) Itsuki:
“Shut up. That’s not it, and I wouldn’t want you to know that.” Aiko:
“Come on! You know you want to kiss her!” Itsuki:
“Yes, but the point is that you need to get your mind out of the gutter!” Aiko:
“My mind’s almost always in the gutter, though!” Itsuki:
“Well, maybe get it out of there for once!” Itsuki:
“Besides…this is something much more serious…”
Noticing Itsuki’s more irritated tone, Aiko decides to drop it and talk more seriously. Aiko:
“...Sorry…it’s just…” Aiko:
“...Ever since the Culture Festival, you seem more tense and mellow than you usually are.” Aiko:
“I’m guessing it has to do with whatever trouble is going on with Natsuki’s family?” Itsuki:
“Definitely. It’s a mess.” Itsuki:
“I’ve been doing the best I can to have her back and all, but…” Itsuki:
“...A part of me can’t help but worry if I can really do this.” Itsuki:
“Or…if I’ll make a big mistake at some point…” Aiko:
“...You may not be perfect, Itsuki…but you ARE a great friend…” Aiko:
“And honestly…I’ve been really worried about what Natsuki’s going through…” Aiko:
“Hell, I’d be even MORE worried if I knew she was just handling it all on her own.” Aiko:
“But…knowing you’re there to help her…eases me a little.” Aiko:
“Because…she’s being helped by someone who cares a lot about her.” Aiko:
“And I know no matter what, you’ll help her to the very end. Even if you screw up along the way.” Aiko:
“So, be more confident in yourself! Whatever crap’s going on isn’t gonna stop you two!” Itsuki:
“...Heh…you’re right…thanks…” Aiko:
“Please! I’m just giving a pal the support they need! It’s what I do!” Aiko:
“Plus…if Natsuki’s okay with it, I’d be more than happy to help out as well.” Itsuki:
“I DID suggest she talk to a few people about it. One of those people being you.” Aiko:
“Ah! That’s nice to hear! But if she’s not gonna tell me right now, I’m fine with it!” Aiko:
“Whatever’s going on with her, it’s probably not something you can easily talk about…” Itsuki:
“You’d be correct in that assumption. But enough about Natsuki.” Itsuki:
“How about we discuss Sonic Forces? I just got that game recently.” Aiko:
“Oh yeah…I forgot about that. Is it any good?” Itsuki:
“Meh. The gameplay feels VERY automated and boring.” Itsuki:
“Plus, the story is utter shit.” Itsuki:
“The custom character is cool, though. And the soundtrack is great, as always.” Aiko:
“Ah…so, another mediocre Sonic game?” Itsuki:
“PAINFULLY mediocre.” Itsuki:
“At least I still have Sonic Mania to go back to.” Aiko:
“Once again, the fans know best.”
Itsuki chuckles a bit at Aiko’s remark, as they continue to walk to Salvato High School. And as they do so, the redhead starts feeling a little better, thanks to his best friend’s support and fun attitude. He was very much the Sayori to Itsuki’s Marise, in many ways. Kind, supportive, energetic, a glutton, and a great friend to have.
Though, a part of the redhead wonders if Aiko will be able to keep up that positive attitude once he gets involved with Natsuki’s situation. Because while the brown-haired boy tends to be very energetic and lively most of the time, he secretly struggles with depression, which often makes him doubt himself and occasionally wonders if he matters in anyone’s lives.
In fact…there was one time where he considered doing something horrible…something that would break everyone’s hearts. But luckily, he was convinced not to, and since then, Aiko’s been trying to get better. And with him and his Mom, Kazuko, trying to fix their strained relationship now, he seems to be doing fantastic. Not perfect, but still much better than before.
But…having to deal with the abuser of one of her friends…would he be able to handle it? Sure, he’s definitely dealt with his fair share of family issues, and depressing thoughts. However, this is a much different beast, and if Aiko couldn’t keep up…if he breaks…it’ll be Itsuki’s fault. Or at least, he’d be partially responsible for whatever happens.
Sure. Aiko doesn’t HAVE to help them. But knowing him, he would. And he’d do whatever he could to make sure Natsuki and anyone else in the know is safe. Even if it hurts him, physically and mentally. And Itsuki would be somewhat responsible for it. Because he decided to bring him into this, and risk the possibility.
And if he DID break? Or god forbid die? Kazuko wouldn’t be afraid to hunt down everyone responsible and let them know the pain she would feel from losing her oldest son. And Itsuki would have to live with that guilt to the day he dies. His best friend, and brother figure…dead. All because he wasn’t capable enough to handle the problem on his own.
However…those aren’t the kinds of thoughts Itsuki should pay attention to. He knew it was gonna be risky, bringing in his friends to help deal with Natsuki’s father. And he knew it might cause a lot of problems for them. But…we all have to take chances for success…even if they don’t appear to be viable… Read the rest of the chapter on AO3!

2023.04.01 18:37 CromaShin [THEORY] (Part 1 of 2) Exposing the Secret of Sweet Oasis
| || | submitted by CromaShin to NMIXX [link] [comments]
Hi NSWERS, welcome back on our logbook in this journey through MIXXTOPIA. I'll be the one who guides you NMIXX feats and stories. This post covers the EXPERGO Pre promotions Era and its content: Concept Story Films, Mixxletters and other media. The 2nd part will be about the MVs and Lyrics breakdown and I will wrap up everything with a conclusion and theories about what's next.
|Welcome To MIXXTOPIA ||Debut and O.O MV ||link |
|Towards The MIXXTOPIA ||DICE MV ||link |
|Expanding The 'MIXX' ||New Frontier, MAMA2022 ||link |
1st Anniversary Recap
It's been a while so we should recall our memories for a moment, let's do a quick resume of a year long lore. O.O Era
7 girls discover a whole new world that expands as they imagine it, called MIXX. They can reach it by opening their eyes "for real". But something is off in the real world, called FIELD, a pirate ship lands on a misty park, cars start levitating, ethereal fish flow out from MIXX to FIELD, Jiwoo stands out of the Donut Shop. DICE Era
NMIXX take their journey on a ship towards MIXXTOPIA, a place in MIXX where "everything you imagine becomes real". In this world, represented this time by a board game, they face enemies who set up traps, just like the Cat. This enemy, born out of the girls' fear, in the end gets defeated. In MIXX, where they played this game a big tornado occurred mostly due to the overload of negative feelings gathered. Emotions here can become physical, that's IMPETUS. Bae drops a Green ball, previously a die, in an orange juice lake. bloom a flower named \"growth\"
Docking Station: Declaration Adventure heads toward freedom. No, adventure is heading toward danger. Following new possibilities, we walked from the real world "FIELD" to the new world "MIXX". It wouldn't have been possible on our own. We met a lot of new friends along the way. Lion, whale, jellyfish and also cats. We soon grew close, collecting the pieces of emotions that bloomed with each of our steps, we pushed our way forward. "MIXX" is growing as big as our imagination, If we reach "MIXXTOPIA" like this, will everything we want coexist? That may not be true, something green and overly sweet is deceiving us and getting in our way. Sweet things seem good, but they stop us from imagining. People whose existence was denied wish to stay in the maze of 0 and 1 rather than take on an adventure. Whenever we're scared, we hold the hand of who's next to us, we feel connected. I become more myself because of you, and you yourself because of me. So nobody feels lonely or left out, we hope to mixx even more. It's now your turn to awake.
The video resumes the first chapter of NMIXX story. Starting from O.O we se Nmixx reaching MIXX in O.O, the domino, the ship in the sky between the seas, the creatures of this new world. In DICE they meet the cat(s) and start collecting the emotions felt during the journey (IMPETUS). MIXX is represented here by a orange juice lake with orange trees growing on the side, fish floating in the air.
This is a new chapter of the story, New Frontier has ended. Nmixx gained experience in the MIXX during the fight with the cat powered by their fears, overcame those feelings and defeat the feline enemy. A docking station is a harbor, a dock where their ship can be welcomed and docked. A docking station is also the devices on a Space Station that permit another spacecraft to connect and exchange useful materials or astronauts. This station is of course located in Mixxtopia, the place they want to reach. But the path is not so easy, a new problem comes up. This green thing is deceiving them and people in the FIELD. They want to save those people by awakening them (spoiler it's us, we are dolphins).
"people who existence was denied wish to stay in the maze of 0 and 1 rather than take on an adventure" is a curious sentence. Who has denied those people to exist? Why do they wish to stay in the maze of 0 and 1? Since they stay in the maze of 0 and 1, which means probably they don't take any chance or bold decision, it means they exist there, so they are forbid to exist in the MIXX? or in the FIELD? We'll see.
Secret of Sweet Oasis
In this video
Reporter Oh Haewon goes live to tell us about Sweet Oasis. This is the hottest candy brand and it sells just one type of round green candy at the same address of the Donut Shop in O.O. There are rumors about this shop and NMIXX want to break into the shop to investigate more. "Does curiosity cause fear? The Cat sends a sudden private message... The broadcast ends. NMIXX manage to sneak into Sweet Oasis. Here they find lots of candies and in a locker, some classified documents with a picture of a cat and a post it with "Maximize Fear" written on it. There is also a date February 19 1971, a place, Florida, US and a person A SURGEON / Graduation from Harvard. Those documents are marked as Check. Let me tell you what those documents are about: this person, "A SURGEON" made an experiment on the cat pictured to maximize the fear, this experiment was a success and DICE events happened. We'll get to know this "surgeon" in a moment. the forbidden fruit THE FAMOUS JIWOO CUT-SCENE
Jiwoo is about to eat a green candy but the scene cuts off. Then we see the post-credit scene in O.O of Jiwoo outside the Donut Shop. Inside the Sweet Oasis a wind blows on the candles and someone rings at the doorbell, the door gets warped and unlocked. First of all, let's understand what eating a green candy implies: we are said that it stops you from imagining and we know that MIXX is accessible only through imagination and it expands with it. We need to acknowledge that inside the Sweet Oasis shop Jiwoo is still here, whether she has eaten or not the candy. But we see also another Jiwoo outside the Donut Shop. Let's start making different scenarios:
- Jiwoo didn't eat the green candy. Nothing "bad" happens to her inside the Sweet Oasis. The ring bells, it's the O.O Jiwoo. This means there are 2 different Jiwoo at the same time and place. In any movie about time travel this should never happen, and if it happens it's because something went wrong in another future time line (see Steins Gate, Dragonball's Trunks, Avengers Endgame, Back to the Future...). Before further speculations let's continue with other scenarios.
- Jiwoo ate the green candy. She can't imagine anymore; she gets disconnected from MIXX and went back on FIELD. She becomes the Jiwoo outside the Donut Shop from O.O. That's the reality, the Donut Shop is still there but with unfixed, blinking lights as it's not in activity (even if lights are on inside). The Sweet Oasis was just an illusion in the MIXX, made to deceive NMIXX into losing their abilities of being "awake".
Let's make other scenarios regarding this scene:
- Future Jiwoo is ringing the bell. Two Jiwoos are about to meet, the space time continuum gets warped. Why does she want to meet NMIXX? To save them from the green thing? Why blow the candles tho? Is she actually evil?
- FIELD Jiwoo is ringing the bell. She wants to go back to MIXX and with NMIXX. She remembers that through that shop she reached the MIXX. But she is still with them inside Sweet Oasis, so she did not stop imagining. This scenario can't happen.
Jinyoung Park PD-nim is ringing the doorbell as in Twice TT MV.
- Jiwoo is NOT ringing the bell. Someone else is ringing it, probably the actual owner of the shop. That's why he blew the candles and warped the space, because he's evil and want to defeat the NMIXX intruders. In this scenario Jiwoo didn't eat the candy since she's still inside, but the O.O Jiwoo outside remains unsolved.
Handling with different timelines and universes is hard, for now we can assume that she didn't eat the candy since she's still inside the Sweet Oasis, that who rings the bell is the enemy and not O.O Jiwoo. The theory that who rings the doorbell is the enemy is confirmed by this Short
where a green slime resembling 2 legs gets splatted under the door, retreats itself, rings the doorbell and then an avalanche of green candies floods the shop. This specific splat of leg-looking shape of slime could be a reference to the movie The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz (from now on abbreviated in TWWOO) where the Wicked Witch of the East gets crushed by the landing of Dorothy's house. The Witch upon her death loses her shoes and disappear under the house. https://preview.redd.it/xuaz29q5vara1.png?width=1392&format=png&auto=webp&s=394c52f7558518b56395fb96c9adda0b8d624b1b
There is a little bit stretched theory: there is a gold pin with "NAILS" and a hand on Jiwoo's beret. In the ENTWURF Limited Edition Album there are holographic cards with a hand with long nails in the background preying on NMIXX. This correlation between NAILS and the fact that last year she made a fake NMIXX logo and captioned the drawing in reversed made some people to believe that the Cut-Scene Jiwoo is evil and started the XXIWN alter-ego theory. I can't prove this theory right or wrong because Jiwoo has always been suspicious but it's also part of her personality. Only time will tell the real truth of the Cut Scene.
The investigation starts. NMIXX release news updates about their discoveries in the green candy shop. The articles are pretty self-explanatory. VOL. 01
There is this new store that only sells green candy. Those super popular candies make your mind go blank and make you feel perfect, if you don't take them, you feel excluded. Due to their excessive sweetness and the fact that turn tongues green those candies are totally chemical, "artificial" as the YouTube Short says. Note that the logo, the Green Eagle, was also a square in the DICE gameboard. At this point it's pretty much confirmed that this store is an enemy. VOL. 02
NMIXX through their investigations find that the owner of the Donut shop has changed. The new owner sells only one type of candy, instead of various doughnuts and candies. "NMIXX have a clear memory of PICK AND MIXX as a vision of it welcomed them the day they took their first step into MIXX" this sentence it's not well written I think, but the idea behind it is that NMIXX remember the old store when they went to MIXX for the first time. They don't know how the store changed and who is the new owner. This clarifies that the owner is another person and not the same of Pick N Mixx. The girls find a uniform with boots, an apron and a raincoat left by the owner on a wall in a secret room. This outfit is used in factories where you get often dirty because you are handling splashy, fluid substances. For this reason, who produces the candies is the owner itself. Nmixx also uncover the name of the store clerk, MONOPOLE, and confirm he/she is a follower of the owner. What "follower" means and implies it's still unknown. VOL. 03
Nmixx confirm our theory about the DICE cat and explain it. MONOPOLE made experiments on a cat, maximizing its fear. NMIXX played with this cat and fought the manifestation of their inner fear, overcoming also big waves and tornadoes sent to them. When the cat regained its normal size, a green dye was spotted on its tail. This green dye was made with lots of negative emotions. In the Sweet Oasis secret room Nmixx found documents about increasing Nmixx's inner fears and eliminate Nswer diversity. Monopole has been watching Nmixx for a long time and caused all the troubles they had. VOL. 04
Apparently, some of us Nswers had been trapped inside a bottle by Monopole in his secret room. As Nmixx say, this is not the first time we were trapped: some dolphins were caged inside frames in that blue and cloudy room in DICE as well. Nswers who were stained by the green dye slowly turn into green candy, losing their diversity. So Nmixx is planning to rescue those sleeping Nswers in a brilliant, lovely and whimsical way. "upgrading the Tap Tap system and developing new various inventions
" says Kyujin, the Engineer, while Haewon the Captain is "devising various plans to go to MIXXTOPIA".
What do you think their plan will be? We'll uncover it on the MV section. this shop once sold various flavored doughnuts, now just one green candy PICK NMIXX YouTube Show
This show is different from NMIXX In Wonderland because this time it's all scripted, since it's an escape room, so they literally played as themselves in the lore and investigated on the green candy shop. The plot follows the articles written on the Mixxletters: NMIXX enter SWEET OASIS to investigate its popularity. The clerk, Monopole welcome them. To order the candy they open a box with GREEN as a password. A message says that the candy "gives you a sweet taste that calms down your inner anxiety"
. In each riddle they solve there will be a piece of dolphin. They will find all the pieces and save the dolphins. They watch an adv of Sweet Oasis... "The only candy that can captivate you. Meet Candy from Sweet Oasis. Multi-colored donuts and candies are so common! Our candy offers a fantastic experience like meeting an oasis in the desert with only one taste. Sweet sold by Sweet Oasis are so sweet that you can't think of anything. It's a perfect candy in color and taste. You can also feel complete after eating this candy. Try before you fall behind the trend."
Then solve the next riddle by ordering 9 books: 1. The pain of sadness 2. Don't be angry 3. How to heal fear 4. How to control one's sadness 5. Three Faces of Anger 6. My Joy 7. Joy is forever 8. Between Joy and Sadness 9. The Secret of Dolphins.
When ordered, the books form the word IMPETUS. Except the last one, that book is a diary from a dolphin: there are pictures of the DICE sky room with dolphins inside the frames. The dolphin says he tasted the green candy, he felt confident and perfect but also suddenly sleepy. NSWER = dolphin, so an NSWER was trapped and they need to save him. A wave of green candies falls from the stairs, together with a capsule. This capsule has a picture of a Fake Green potion that leads them to the corridor. The girls find Monopole studio and secret room. In the middle of the room a table is filled with clues, dots and links. The colored wires form 1202 which is the password for a cabinet. Monopole is coming for them but NMIXX hide so she decides to report the intrusion to the manager, the owner of Sweet Oasis, after leaving another diary page of the dolphin diary on the table. "I used to love imagining things. Imagining is always fun but strangely, obsessively I keep thinking about one thing repeatedly. Why am I like this? To think of it, where am I? I was in the store a minute ago, it smells excessively sweet. I can hear the machine...it's dark..."
On this table NMIXX find information about them, the recipe of the Fake Green, its effects (terror, fear, hallucinations), photos of the sky room in DICE, one with dolphins in the frames and another with almost all empty frames. That's why Nmixx is here, to save those remaining Nswers. In the next room of the corridor there are puzzles themed by Wisdom, Love and Courage from the Concept Story: Blue, cloud and white flower is Courage, Red, apples and orange is Love, Yellow and candles is Wisdom. Solving a riddle, they find another diary page where the NSWER talks about his friend acting strange, deep sleeping, he's worried that something bad will happen so he must tell other people but can't because he's falling asleep too. In the last riddle box they find the frames seen in the DICE scene. They fit the dolphins inside them. After saving NSWERs the intruder alert triggers, the security system is activated and they can't escape unless they find the password, which is expérgo320. They escape bringing NSWERs and a sample of Fake Green. https://preview.redd.it/a5uhz658vara1.png?width=703&format=png&auto=webp&s=d470f08ff132a460e8639c42a371fdb276a31cf8
Now let's watch the table closely, starting from top left. Identikits for every member, an article about their career as singers. Picture of the green optical illusions seen in the XXIWN twitter account, "Experiment", "symptom" "hallucination" "fear" "who?" "why?", screenshots from the warped black and white setting of DICE, "success!", a map of the Land of Oz, an ad of a travel to Paris, the Fake Green illustration, a pair of blue glasses, "green", a tornado, a photo of Nmixx looking at the pictures on the Nswer's diary just found, the same pictures of DICE with and without dolphins in the frames, photos of Pick N Mixx shop inside and outside, the previous candies and the new green ones, a vandalized version of O.O album cover with a green smile, "space", "world", "target value", "0? 1?", a screen with a maze of 0 and 1 and "password", the recipe: 1,5g salt, 30g sugar, 50g the Fake Green.
What we can deduct from this table is that Monopole and/or her boss is stalking NMIXX since O.O, he "experimented" this Fake Green thing and caused hallucinations and fear as symptoms to Nwers and Nmixx. He's correlated with XXIWN since he knows about the green illusions and the graffiti campaign occured that time. We still can't say he is XXIWN because we don't have an actual proof since these are just clues he has on his table, but it could be since in the Mixxletter it's called "organization". The blue (green) glasses are the glasses everyone in Emerald City, where Oz lives, must wear (because Oz is deceiving the citizens in seeing everything green). The tornado is how Dorothy came to Oz and it's what happens in DICE. He knows that NMIXX rescued and will rescue the dolphins he trapped in the frames so they must be eliminated. The photos of the old shop show that he knows how it was. I discussed the meaning of 1202 in the O.O [THEORY] but I found another reference related to TWWOO: the name in the car plate is the name of the actress who portrayed the Wicked Witch of the West, Margaret Brainard Hamilton. For this reason we can consider the car "evil" as it carries an antagonist name. Basically he's the enemy who caused the misadventures to NMIXX and trapped NSWERS.
Story Concept Films Dizziness From Freedom Anxiety. Does it come from 'within you'? Or does it come from the outside? Freedom. Inside freedom. We feel anxiety since... we always have to make our own 'choices'. Facing new, unheard senses that grew threw the apertures of freedom to blossom a flower named 'growth'. We must make a choice on our own, once again. In the midst of endless chaos and disarray, we will eventually find... The path that I truly desired. https://preview.redd.it/scocq0r9vara1.png?width=1392&format=png&auto=webp&s=c34ce04f275e709d7b4f47562593dd92a0ff74d1
This one is pretty intense. In this video we see a group of youthful friends dealing with the emotions everyone feels at that age. During that age you can choose your entire future life just by choosing a different school or job, endless possibilities. You can also be overloaded by all this freedom, maybe you made a wrong choice and you want to go back but it's too late, maybe you are taking too much time to choose, this can cause the "dizziness from freedom" the video is talking. Haewon is in the middle of her crossway, which can be her life until now. She must pursue her dream and take a step forward on the path she's taking. Kyujin entered an alley with several doors, those doors represent the choices she can make. After making a choice she can only continue that way, the other doors disappear. Yes, the traffic light switching from 7 to 6 it's clearly a reference to Jinni. By making new choices and facing new unheard senses they are growing. In this dizziness caused by the chaos of endless choices they will find the path they truly believe.
"does anxiety come from within you or from the outside?" this question also appeared on the JYPE site as "The most important question, does that huge shadow that threatens you come from the ‘outside’? Or from ‘within you’?.
That time in my DICE [THEORY] I said this shadow was their inner fear and they brought it into MIXX. Now we are asked again where does this emotion come from. From the Youtube Show we can say it comes from inside because a message said that the green candy calms down your inner anxiety. Kyujin is alone on the rooftop, Jiwoo is alone in the bathroom, Haewon is crossing the road alone, everyone dealing with their own worries. But Nmixx are alone together, they gather at the end to see the fireworks, a metaphor to say that they made their choices, grew their (fire) flower until it blossomed. fireflowers Wisdom, Love, Courage When wisdom touches our eyes we can sort out the lies and false minds. When love touches our lips, the imagination becomes reality. When courage touches our fingertip, it shall grant us the power to truly push forward. At the end of the long and winding road, 'wisdom' found 'love' and 'love' grew 'courage'. It all exists inside us. You, and I. As long as they lie inside our souls, we will love our own self... And love each other.
A flaming heart behind curtains, six blindfolded girls on the other side of the curtains, with the same long light blue dress. Lily and Bae with light hair colors stand in front, behind them Jiwoo and Kyujin with black hair but with one side on the front and the other o the rear, finally Haewon and Sullyoon with both black hair on the back. Haewon and Sullyoon start whispering in the ear: Sullyoon to Jiwoo, Haewon to Kyujin. Bae holds Kyujin's hand, and writes 니, it's not clear because she writes the ㅣ in the same spot as ㄴ, it could also represent "LI", or 4, or the occult symbol of Jupiter... Seems that Kyujin isn't aware, like if she is in trance, and Bae had to move Kyujin's hand herself. After this ritual, on the flaming heart, flowers and grass blossom. The girls enter in a new mental state and dimension. They find each other divided in couples, one in every room. The couple Jiwoo-Lily (whispered by Sullyoon) appeared in the Wisdom room, Sullyoon-Haewon (the whisperers) in the love room and Kyujin-Bae (whispered by Haewon) in the courage room. The couples take each other's hand and walk towards the garden at the center of this space. As they join all their hands together the MIXX fills the empty space. This world has a purple moon on the ground, dolphins (we NSWERS), floating islands and mini planets, green hills and a grand heart-shaped tree, a rainbow crosses the entire sky. We switch to reality again, Haewon is still whispering to the blindfolded Kyujin. Wisdom room
Let's dive into this deep symbolism and break it down:
First of all Nmixx is seated in a very designed way, converging to the iron flaming heart. In a ritual-like manner they blindfold themselves and two start whispering. Whispering in the ears was a way to initiate new acolytes in a cult during the mesopotamian era. (see this paper
for further information) The priest(ess) will whisper incantation to the cult followers under a drug induced trance. That's why Bae has to move Kyujin hand herself in order to write something. We don't know if Lily did the same for Jiwoo. After this sign the iron heart blooms and the girls enter MIXX. Their blindfold falls off, but we know that in reality they still have it as seen in the end of the video. So this means they are in MIXX with just their mind or spirit. In this space they are divided in couples and spawn in a designed room. The whisperers together in Love, the whispered by Haewon in Courage and the whispered by Sullyoon in Wisdom. "When love touches your lips" is a way to say "when you talk about love" and here imagination becomes reality. It's the 2nd comeback and we still have problems defining what this means, is it a switch of dimensions? in the way the imagination is their new reality? or the imagination materializes in the reality, merging with it? It's probably both but let's say for this time that their new reality is the imagination, the MIXX. They open their eyes here, they are awake here, they are living here, as far as they keep being in trance in the other (real) reality. Love room
In the Wisdom room walls are blue and cloudy to represent the sky, three esoteric symbols appear on a wall, one has an eye surrounded by the Venus symbol, one represents the Sun and an overlapping circles symbol behind Lily's head possibly a Flower Of Life. The girls are surrounded by candles and flying rocks which represent wisdom of course. Their pathway and facade are golden (yellow). The Love room has twilight colors, an orange tree and a heart with spikes and 6 surrounding stars. Here apples are floating around the room, symbol of love. The flaming heart with spikes is with no doubt a reference to the Sacred heart of Jesus. This catholic symbol represents the boundless ardent love for mankind and the spikes represent the passion of Christ. The six stars can easily represent Nmixx but the meaning behind that could be deeper. But why twilight? Well, in the greek mythology there is a golden apple garden protected by Hesperides, a group of nymphs protect in the farthest west where the sun sets. Its pathway is red. The Courage room is totally blue with curtains made of strings. On the wall a symbol of the moon and its phases. White roses are floating around. Those white flowers represent innocence, purity, which have little to do with courage though. Same goes for the moon which means in most of the cultures change, the cycle of life. Its pathway is blue. Courage room
In TWWOO (movie) a Red Brick Road appears but it's never said where it leads, a Blue Brick Road is never mentioned neither in the book. I will not take in account other canon sequels of TWWOO because I doubt SQU4D themselves went that far. Anyway, blue and red lands in TWWOO exist. NMIXX reach the garden and the MIXX, very similar to the sky islands in O.O, starts expanding as they imagine. They are now happy together in this dreamy and quirky world. Why is Jiwoo so extra? She's the first to open her eyes, she rapidly looks towards Lily, she taps her on the shoulder and at the end she's the only one laughing hard. Knowing her Famous Cutscene, this is pretty suspicious. Their outfit must be mentioned: they all wear the same dress, which can be the uniform the cult has to wear in those rituals. But why are we talking about cult stuff, are we in Midsommar? Weren't we on a cruise toward a new world?
On a DICE photocard of Kyujin there was this phrase Don't you stop a shining whisper
, and now she's being whispered in ear by Haewon. Now we know those phrases are spoilers for the next comebacks.
- Apparently NMIXX knows how to save NSWERs from the frames and they will succeed in doing it since the Wisdom, Love, Courage video takes place.
- How they will save Nswers it's unknown but we can tell they will use their music of course and their abilities of their roles, given in DICE.
- Monopole is the clerk of Sweet Oasis and she did not make the green candies. It was the owner of Sweet Oasis who made them and left the apron stained by the liquid. We know that this person is, indeed, a person and not a monstrous supernatural being. Just a person who can make drugs. It's possible that this person is the SURGEON from Florida.
- Sweet Oasis is referred as an organization, whose Boss is the owner of the shop. From what's written this Sweet Oasis shop is the only shop in the world and that's why everyone comes there. So organization doesn't mean company. It's unknown how many members this organization has but at least 2. One of these two it's Monopole and it's not a XXIWN member if you want to believe to evil NMIXX.
- Let's uncover the name Monopole. It's an hypotetical magnetic pole with only positive or negative sign. It can't be real since the electromagnetic field have to close to another opposite pole, but a monopole just have one pole so the lines can't close which is impossible. It can also means the thing you use to adjust the frequency of a old radio or the channels of a old television or even to open a door. It's probably the first definition.
- NMIXX did not leave the reality world FIELD for good. They still live on Earth just like other human beings and since they are human beings as well they have anxiety, fear, mental breakdowns, delusion etc... as seen in Dizziness From Freedom.
- What MIXX really is? Before this era it was a "box" they used for imagine and make fantasy worlds in their head to play when they were kids. But this imaginary world expanded as they grew. So this MIXX was an imaginary world until it broke through the FIELD. What NMIXX wants is to open the eyes of other people and make them join this MIXX, escape the dull, wrong, delusional FIELD and live together in MIXXTOPIA where everyone is different and lives in harmony.
- But since this world is born from people's thoughts and emotions, the bad one can materialize. People with bad intentions that don't want other people to live in a better way than them want to stop NMIXX: those people sent a giant cat against them, tornados and big waves. Those people are the organization of Monopole.
This first [THEORY] part was all about the Sweet Oasis shop, what they did to Nswers and Nmixx. The next [THEORY] post will discuss how they saved Nswers and opened their eyes in MIXX.
TWWOO will remain as a reference concept since they based the enemy of NMIXX on the Wizard of Oz himself.
This is not the end! a part 2 is already written and scheduled to be posted in a few days, the right amount for you lore enthusiasts to study well, let the knowledge solidify and prepare for the next course. Stay tuned!!!
I hope you enjoyed this era until this moment, see you in the comments and in a few days again. Bye! NewJeans' OMG
2023.04.01 17:43 radar_byte "It's Ok baby, get some sleep"
My mom died within a month, and I'm still finding it so unbelievable. I won't miss her voice, but I'll miss that comfort. That presence.
But I tried my best, but I think things got the better of us both. She died in the early morning, almost as if to say "it's ok my baby boy, you get some rest now. You got a long road ahead"
Mama, I'm gonna miss you so damn much.

2023.04.01 17:06 pdfodol What I bought, ought, and brought on my international trip
tl;dr at bottom for top 3 of each category
I took a 16 day European trip with my wife from U.S.A through England, France, and Germany and back to U.S. But in Germany we had to stay longer as strikes cancelled my plane and could not get out till days later. What I bought
just before the trip. While I’m not happy that I bought so much for a trip. A lot came in very handy and some obviously won’t have to purchase again.
These are listed in most useful at top to least useful at the bottom.
What I ought
- Vessi Everyday Moves shoes. Man for me personally I can’t give these shoes enough credit. They saved my feet so much through all the walking we did. It makes me rethink my work shoes. After work the bottom of my feet will be sore and kill me. But these shoes I never had feet that hurt, yes, my calves did, but not my feet. Also my feet stayed dry as it rained for about 14 of the 16 days we originally planned. Link: https://vessi.com/products/mens-everyday-move-onyx-black
- Rain jacket. Yeah I never had a rain jacket. Sure I have umbrella’s but where I live it only rains maybe 100 days of the year. So I just need an umbrella. The rain jacket was so nice to have as I didn’t have to juggle an umbrella in crowded touristy areas. Link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09CPLW4L3?ref=ppx\_pop\_mob\_ap\_share
- Airalo Esim. I bought a regional Airalo esim that worked all over Europe for the 16 days a 5gb is perfect as long as your not doing a lot of wireless calling or video calling. It was easy to install and I have done it for Mexico before and will continue to buy in the future. Link: https://www.airalo.com
- 1 Lightweight water repellent travel chino pants. I wear blue jeans all the time and have for the past 28 years. But I needed something more lightweight as I was trying to keep 15lbs and under in my carryon for Singapore air. These pants are amazing. The are comfy, a tad stretchy, quick drying, water repellent, and have zippers on the back pockets that have a small flap over them to better conceal and another “hidden” pocket on the side of the leg. I am definitely buying more. Link: https://a.co/d/bRfsuBN
- A universal plug adapter. Was definitely useful as it had 4 usb plugs + type C and works for US, EU, UK, and AUS. Would be nice to have a second one. Maybe more of a dumb one in case of electronics malfunction. link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B095BJFBW9?ref=ppx\_pop\_mob\_ap\_share
- A 10L sling bag for personal item. I wanted a personal item bag that would fit on pretty much every single airline as best as I could. My bag is 9.84” x 3.9” x 15.4”. I like the sling as I could easily swing it around to my chest and easily grab my water bottle for quick drinks. The second best part of the size was it fit under the small space under the seat of the ICE train as well. The other nice part was when I was carrying it around in the Louvre my shoulder was getting sore and I can easily change the strap to go over a different shoulder. I like this bag. Link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07GSTM8G8?ref=ppx\_pop\_mob\_ap\_share
- A luggage scale. While I didn’t have to do carryon only. I wanted to and the airline Singapore like a few others restrict a carryon to 15lbs. So I bought one and knew exactly how much my carryon and personal item weighed. I also brought it with me on the trip. So when I fly back I can rearrange things that I bought (I also packed an extra bag in my carryon as well). Link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0822GDHYJ?ref=ppx\_pop\_mob\_ap\_share
- A new sleep mask. So I have bought a couple before hand but never found one that I really liked. The first one was a sleep mask with a outward mold for the eyes so your eyelashes/eyelids don’t tough the mask. But the straps on these would hurt my ears. So I bought one that was super soft and fully covered ears as well but it had no eye mold. Then I found one that has the eye mold and the strap doesn’t hurt my ears. So I’m happy with this one. Link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07R558RLV?ref=ppx\_pop\_mob\_ap\_share
- Selfie stick/tripod. I bought this specifically for Paris and England. So my wife and I could take shots of us in front of major tourist attractions without handing our phone to a stranger and then them running off with it. Definitely came in handy. If you are anti selfie stick bring/buy a disposable camera just for the photos that you want taken of you in front of an attraction. This way they are less likely to steal it. Link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07K5QVJV3?ref=ppx\_pop\_mob\_ap\_share
- Laundry detergent paper sheets. Yes this is laundry detergent that is like a paper sheet. You just tear off how much you need depending on if a light load or normal. This was nice as some of the Airbnb or the hotel we stayed at either had no laundry soap or only gave us 1. Some of the washers in Europe were so small that we had to do multiple loads (even though we didn’t bring much). So this was nice to have. There are many it there this is just the one we bought because of a sale. Link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0B81BPZNS?ref=ppx\_pop\_mob\_ap\_share
- A small clear travel pouch for toiletries. I wanted a small pouch just for some long haul plane essentials. In this pouch I had a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss picks, moisturizer, deodorant, ear plugs, travel size body wash, and a couple cough drops (if needed). I was trying to find a particular size and I looked up clear pencil case pouches and found this park of four. I like it because it fits in my personal bag right next to my Beats over the ear headphones and my wife’s Vera Bradley tech case perfectly (I measured Before hand) Link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B098NVNWYX?ref=ppx\_pop\_mob\_ap\_share
- Compression socks. Don’t know if they were necessary but my wife needed some as she is pregnant and the doctor suggested them. So we found a pack of six and wore them on our long haul red eye flight. Link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07F1LJPNN?ref=ppx\_pop\_mob\_ap\_share
- 1 ft 90° iPhone cords. Usually when I go on vacation I bring some 6’ iPhone cords so we can charge our phones by the bedside. But they can be too long when we’re out day tripping. So I wanted some short cords. Also my wife makes her fanny pack as her purse and there is a slot for her phone. But the phone won’t fit in with a regular cord as it has to be angled. So I got some 90° ones and have been really nice. Link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0916VZJJ1?ref=ppx\_pop\_mob\_ap\_share
- Travel camping clothesline. I bought this in case if the Airbnb’s didn’t have a drying rack as some didn’t have dryers or the drying racks were not substantial enough. We used it once maybe twice. Was fine except a bit awkward to adhere it to something in an apartment that won’t break what it’s attached to because of the weight. We’ll see if this gets used again. Link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074QKYGTT?ref=ppx\_pop\_mob\_ap\_share
- Apple air tag. These were a Christmas gift, but we wanted some for travel in case we had to check our carryon luggage or if we brought checked luggage on this European trip (we didn’t check bags). But I put one in my carryon and one in my wifes. I slid mine in a zipper pocket in the back of my carryon to better conceal it. Link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0932QJ2JZ?ref=ppx\_pop\_mob\_ap\_share
- Travel floss pick case. Okay so these were the least necessary item on the list. It was just nice to have a case for floss picks and not having them jumbled in a bag. But hey it’s getting used and I can put more in. If I want to put the ones in there that I regularly buy and not the ones designed for the case. I may need to sand down a piece of plastic inside the case to fit my usual generic ones. Link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08PV3539R?ref=ppx\_pop\_mob\_ap\_share
These are things that I should buy or consider on a future trip.
What I brought
- Travel insurance. For international trips and to cover what my travel credit card may not.
- Vessi shoes for my wife. Her bottom of feet were hurting even with new gel insoles. My feet did not hurt with the Vessi’s I bought. Will be buying her a pair.
- A packable waterproof backpack for my wife. We found out my wife’s current daypack is not waterproof.
- A new raincoat for my wife that actually is waterproof
- A waterproof backpack cover. Like a shower cap but for your luggage. We found out my wife’s packable day pack was not waterproof. Which got me thinking what if we were caught in the rain with our carryons. How would or clothes be protected if it was a hard rain and can’t get under shelter. Think I will be buying these and keep them with the bags. Link: https://a.co/d/5KyYFx7
- A second but maybe “dumb” universal plug adapter. Link: https://a.co/d/gKDA6r8
- An umbrella. We didn’t pack this due to constraints with weight and space. Though we did have rain jackets, until my wife’s jacket started ripping. We bought an umbrella in Paris.
- Portable fan. While it was 40°F - 50°F in all the places we went. Most didn’t have air conditioning and it was still pretty warm at night where you toss and turn a couple times. Would have been nice to have.
- More cough drops. I only brought just one single one as an emergency. Well near the end of our trip my wife needed some and 1 was not enough. Maybe I would do 4 but no more. We did buy a pack when we could.
- More blister bandaids. We had 4 of them and used them up already. I would like to try a rule of 2 per person plus 2 more.
- My quick dry towel which is a swim chamois. I had bought this for my Kauai trip as I like to wear rash guards and bathing suits so I can jump in the water any time and easily dry off. This little towel while small really soaks up water! But since it rained like 14 days of this trip it would have been nice to have so that I could wipe the water off a bench and sit down to enjoy a pastry with my wife or just sit and not in water. What actually I did was took off my rain jacket and laid it on the bench for my wife to sit. While I got a bit cold. Link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0742R14NQ?ref=ppx\_pop\_mob\_ap\_share
Obviously what I packed for the trip but the list below does not include what I bought just before the trip. These are in order of most used at the beginning to the least used at the end.
- 2 power banks + cords. We use the smaller form factor power bank when out and about, but will use the bigger one on flights or at the airport. Bigger power bank Link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08MBQPV91?ref=ppx\_pop\_mob\_ap\_share smaller power bank link (does not come with wall adapter): https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07PXMF52C?ref=ppx\_pop\_mob\_ap\_share
- Three 6’ iphone cords (two for phones, 1 extra for TV adapter)
- 1 iPhone to TV adapter + hdmi cable. I like having this so I can watch my favorite shows from my phone to the TV. Why not just a chromecast? Well I can’t chromecast my downloaded videos if wifi is spotty to the chromecast. Link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B009WHV3BM?ref=ppx\_pop\_mob\_ap\_share
- Phone holder for flights. This was a nice upgrade from the flat foldable but only sits on a flat surface phone holder. Link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07T8KL6C6?ref=ppx\_pop\_mob\_ap\_share
- Headphone splitter + 3.5mm to lightning cable converter plus 2 old wired apple earbuds. This way my wife and I can watch videos together that I downloaded on my phone.
- Old beats noise cancelling over the ear headphones.
- Travel power strip. This was a Christmas gift a while ago. Good if an outlet is to far from the bed or not enough wall outlets. Link: https://a.co/d/4tGSVkT
- Refillable water bottle. I have a Travel Kodi cup that is similar to a Yeti.
- Ear plugs (for the plane, but good thing I had them for an Airbnb in London as you could hear the road noise a bit to well.
- Charles Schwab debit card. I got this because it refunds ATM fees worldwide and it’s another account that I can keep extra money in and if it ever gets compromised my main account at a different bank won’t be messed with.
- A packable day backpack. This has been nice to take on day trips when I don’t want to unpack my personal item bag to go somewhere or to have another bag if we bought to much. Link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07D373JGV?ref=ppx\_pop\_mob\_ap\_share
- 2 travel Kleenex packs. Runny noses and more.
- Nail trimmer and clipper kit. Came in handy for when having a hang nail or a nail broke even though I clipped them before the trip.
- Ibuprofen + melatonin. Many countries you cannot get ibuprofen over the counter. So good to bring your own. I always carry any pills in their original box (I do not like putting them in these travel pill cases.
- Swimsuit (use for Baden Baden spa)
- Moisturizing cream. For the plane trip with the dry air and during my trip if needed. Maybe get a solid lotion bar like this. So it does not count against liquids. Link: https://a.co/d/gHBFySV
- Face mask. Just in case if I cough on the plane or a confined transportation, or if some business still requires it.
Clothes (for 16 days, turned to be 19 with flight cancellations)
- 6 underwear and socks
- 4 t-shirts
- 3 pants
- 1 zipper sweater (It’s all about layers and getting those layers off easily.
- 2 pajamas
- 1 long sleeve shirt
- 1 windpants/ lounge pants (did not use)
My Top 3 of bought, ought, and brought.
Bought: #1 Vessie Move, #2 rain jacket, #5 Universal plug adapter
Ought: #17 travel insurance, #18 Vessi for my wife, #19 waterproof packable backpack for wife.
Brought: #28 power banks, #48 zipper sweater, #36 ear plugs

2023.04.01 16:03 thecambridgegeek March 2023's new fiction podcasts
I've got what I think is a mostly exhaustive list of the new fiction podcasts that came out this month, which may be of interest to those looking for new shows. Feel free to tell me any I've missed, and I'll update it. (Note, "new" here means that the Ep1 of the RSS feed was released.) Listened to any of them that you would recommend?
I've given up trying to include the full list here, as it's increasingly large, and reddit keeps throwing problems. So the full list is here: https://www.thecambridgegeek.com/posts/2023/04/20230401-a.php
Previous months are available here: https://www.thecambridgegeek.com/results.php?proof=Releases&tag1=Audio%20fiction
And the ongoing updates (just in case you don't want to wait for the end of the month) are available here: https://twitter.com/AudioDramaDebut https://podvibes.co/@audiofictionuk#
Want a weekly email newsletter of all of these as I find them? Join my patreon to get access to that: https://www.patreon.com/thecambridgegeek
(Please join, it's only £1/month and I currently make a loss with some of the resources I pay for to do this.)
And the full database is searchable here by a number of tags: https://audiofiction.co.uk/search2.php

Altered State of Affairs
Audio Book - Thriller and Psychological
Altered State of Affairs, the novel, is a tale about an audacious kid from Cleveland Heights who unites in France with a beautiful Mossad agent and an eyeless doll for an adventure of a lifetime. The novel is now a podcast. This is Altered State of Affairs, The Podcast. The show is where the author, Jerald Kasimov, reads from certain chapters of his books and that has conversations about selections and fascinating topics in that specific reading. Here's a summary of the novel: Steven, a freshly-minted Army Ranger and aspiring badass, can’t wait to go after some bad guys—and maybe some bad girls, too. Fortunately, a Soviet master scientist has just defected and is hiding somewhere in the rugged French Pyrenees, and Steven must find him before a sadistic terrorist does. Along the way, he meets a traitor in a field of red poppies, a beautiful Mossad black-ops agent, some delicious cassoulet, and Cindy, the telepathic, eyeless doll. It’s time for Steven, an atypical hero, to man up, but nothing is as it seems—least of all, Steven. The story winds through time from adolescence in 1960s Cleveland Heights to the rigors of present-day Army Ranger training in Fort Benning, non-stop death-defying action, the delights of Israeli cooking, and the tragic yet triumphant history of the Jewish People. Oh, and there’s that beautiful Mossad agent…. But first, Steven has a world to save from a horrific weapon of mass destruction!

Ellen Vahr - Gaven
Audio Book - Historical
«Gaven» er en roman basert på livet til Anne Brannfjell, husmannsdatteren som ble Norges mest kjente kloke kone. Den er en fortelling om frykt og fortielse, men også om kjærligheten og tillitens plass i våre liv, og om mulighetene som åpner seg når vi våger å stå ved oss selv. Siden hun var liten, har husmannsjenta Anne visst at hun er født med en gave, en evne til å se, og et kall til å hjelpe syke og lidende. I stedet for å være stolt over denne gaven, gjemmer hun den bort. Hun vil ikke være annerledes. Vinteren 1841 reiser Anne fra Vardal til Christiania for å tjene hos byens mest berømte gullsmed og hans unge, vakre kone. Hun har valgt den veien hun tror er den rette. Det eneste hun har med seg er noen tørkede planter, en sort bok og en hemmelighet. Livet i Christiania er ikke som hun hadde trodd, og det er først da hun tror at hun har mistet alt, at Anne finner kraften til å stole på hvem hun er. «Gaven» handler om Annes kamp for å finne sin egen vei - og å våge å gå den. Det er en historie om dyp fattigdom, svik og krenkelser, men det er også en kjærlighetshistorie om mot, håp og om å finne veien hjem. Ellen Vahr er Anne Brannfjells tipp-tipp-oldebarn.

L'appel de l'enfance
Audio Drama - Slice of life
Une fiction qui met en scène les tribulations d’un personnage confronté quotidiennement aux dérives de la société actuelle. Avec François SARANO,Céline COUSTEAU, Matthieu RICARD, Miguel BENASAYAG et Katie MAGGS. Trente ans après l’avoir perdue de vue, Jean-Baptiste retrouve par hasard sur le net une amie d’enfance anglaise qui a connu les mêmes souffrances que lui. Sa solution pour recouvrer son équilibre : se baigner chaque matin dans la mer Celtique et rechercher en permanence ses sensations d’enfant. En raison des restrictions sanitaires, Jean-Baptiste doit attendre deux ans avant de pouvoir aller lui rendre visite en Cornouailles. Pendant ces deux années, s’enchaînent pour Jean-Baptiste des rencontres inattendues avec différentes personnalités qui réagissent aux problèmes auxquels il est confronté. Chacune apporte son éclairage sur ces maux sociétaux et avance ses propositions pour sortir de l’impasse. Peu à peu, un changement profond s’opère en Jean-Baptiste, dont l’aboutissement coïncide avec son séjour tant attendu en Cornouailles. Au retour de ce voyage, l’écart entre ce qu’il est devenu et son mode de vie le conduit à un burn out, qui vient confirmer la nécessité de changer de vie. Les souffrances évoquées dans cette série sont soit largement couvertes par les médias (environnement, covid) soit plus insidieuses (la mal-bouffe, le manque d’altruisme, les conséquences de l’utilisation maladive des portables, etc.) Au fil de ses échanges avec les différents intervenants, le personnage fictif opère un changement intérieur complet, amorcé par la première de ces rencontres : celle avec l’océanographe François SARANO, collaborateur du commandant Cousteau, qui lui glisse la phrase suivante : “Pour changer, il faut d’abord se retrouver avec soi-même, se reconnecter avec la nature et, enfin, s’engager.”

Seven miles to the east, a busy dual carriageway barely acknowledges that Hobsick exists, pointing any potential traffic down a sinister, unnamed B-road. To the west of the village sags the overgrown, potholed remains of twelve miles of another dual carriageway, as good as severed from civilization by a landslide in 1967.

New Eden - A Cyberpunk Podcast
Audio Drama - Cyberpunk
Plot: The Human Race have taken refuge on the dusty sibling planet of Mars. Such a curious debacle we find ourself in once again.
