2023.06.10 06:07 -Ecarinsurance- Shawn and Henry’s relationship
Idk if this has been discussed yet but I feel like Shawn and Henry are one of the few and most realistic depictions of a parent and grown child relationship I’ve seen on tv. For example it’s obvious that they fight and disagree on a lot of things. But I feel like that’s normal for a parent/child relationship. But when it comes down to things they show each other they love and care for each other in their own ways. And that’s what I (personally) feel like it is to have parents. Knowing the way they show love and just excepting that that’s how they show it. And honestly I feel like this show does that perfectly with Shawn and Henry.

2023.06.10 06:06 r4chhel i quite literally have a stalker at 17
this is like the longest post ever so, hopefully enjoy haha. but, tldr at bottom. advice wanted.
near the end of sophomore year i had a thing with a girl. long story short, it didn’t work out. i later found out that this girl, who we’ll call tilly (??lol), was also having a thing at the same time with ANOTHER girl, who we’ll call kat.
i only found out about this through kat, who messaged me only to get mad at me for it (quick reminder, had no clue this was going on. i know everyone is different but i dont believe in talking like that with multiple people at once so, if i knew that was going on i would’ve ended things myself sooner). i thought the entire thing was stupid to get mad at ME about but, i could tell she was just hurt so i tried being sympathetic, didn’t call her names or get upset with her. eventually i just told her that i wouldn’t be speaking with tilly ever again, her now girlfriend. partially out of respect for her and partially because i was mad at tilly 😑.
but i held this promise. eventually i get another text from kat, this time MUCH angrier LMAO. her acc popped up on my fyp and i swiped to her full acc, forgetting i had profile views on (terrible mistake, i about punched myself out of embarrassment). she saw me in her views and was pretty upset. asked me why i was on her acc, was much more aggressive. name calling, threatening to fight me (she quote “wanted my head”? 😏).
anyways this conversation actually ended really well, i clarified i didn’t know about her and she seemed to calm down from there. even confiding in me about how upset she was about the situation and we had a really good talk. i thought it would be over after this cause she seemed like a sweet person who was just hurt and didn’t know how to deal with it. i was very wrong.
eventually a couple months down the line i get another onslaught of seemingly random texts from her. calling me a slut and a home wrecker (you’re 16? what home?). calling me ugly, a whore, blah blah the basics. threatening pretty hard this time, i go to school on a college campus and it’s open for anyone’s entry; she planned to use this to her advantage lol. i tried very hard to be patient and refrained from calling her any names back, told her i wasn’t going to fight her, and tried talking things out. this failed LMAO
by the end of the conversation she had told me to get out of her phone (she texted me first? 😰) and said “fuck you and it’s fuck you till i die”. ngl, the idea of someone taking the thought of me to the grave is quite romantic. i just blocked her after this.
definitely thought that would be the end of it cause who is insane enough to keep going after that? kat apparently!
she contacted me on her second account! threatening to fight me again, telling me to quote “drop the addy” (giggle). i didn’t respond to it this time, at all. i was in the middle of a chem exam and rlly needed to pass. she didn’t like this and began to talk to herself about how angry she was with me from 1pm to 6pm. i blocked that account as well. but not before she got one of her friends to message me from their account, removing all the photos of them together from his account so i wouldnt know they were connected. i had already seen this guys stuff though so, i'm not an idiot LMAO. blocked that account too.
i definitely thought this would be the end. NO!!!! it had been MONTHS by now, and they were still dating so come on man arent you tired??? just have a nice relationship without bothering me. reminder, still havent spoken to tilly at ALLLLLL since the day i found out; unless it was to ask her to tell her gf to leave me alone.
it got significantly worse from this point, but its all things i cant confirm were her 100%. shes quite sneaky ngl. but, theres no one else it couldve been and all things point to her so. here we go.
first incident: after these accounts were blocked, she forged screenshots of me saying racial and homophobic slurs and SENT THEM TO MY SCHOOL!!!! my principal had to speak with me about it and my dad even came to the school. the ss forging sucked, the pfp was out of whack and way too big but, she still DID it. which i thought was literally insane.
second incident: her texting my mom. my mom is a pretty big realtor in my area. consequently, her phone number is plastered all over the place. this girl texts my mom pretending to be someone interested in buying a house. she begins the messages by saying her son knew me in middle school (????) and wanted my PHONE NUMBER so her son could reconnect with me (how sweet!). ofc my mom said she was uncomfortable with this after i said i didnt know who the hell this lady was talking about and after this the woman seized all contact with my mom. we later found out this number was FAKE!! and created through textnow. so pretty good confirmation.
most recent incident that i've been paranoid about all day haha: yesterday i received a picture of a house in my neighborhood (???) from some random burner account claiming to be someone i knew from school. i assumed they knew where i lived because it was my mom's husband's nephew (supposedly). i still thought this was suspicious, especially after they asked me to hangout (of course i said no).
this secret little account was only following 3 pages (or so i thought), all from the school that kat goes to. so, i begin interrogating this so called man named "djjwjskaka." they seemed to get pretty nervous at my questions bc things weren't adding up, eventually leading to the convo ending. i'm texting my close friend about this and they find out that its actually following 4 pages, i just couldnt see because i had it blocked. the last one is the GUY FRIEND OF KAT. WHO TRIED MESSAGING ME. TO HANG OUT. BEFORE INCIDENT 1???? blocked the hell out the account after that.
now i know that she somehow KNOWS WHERE I LIVE?? my dad said addresses arent as hard to find as i thought though so, maybe this isnt as ridiculous as i think. keep in mind, ive kept my parents completely updated throughout the YEAR this stuff has been going on. A YEAR!!! BY THE WAY!! its actually been a year and 3 months!
i was pretty freaked out about that but, no way she'd actually do something with that info lol?? wrong again.
today as im sitting in my room i hear this LOUDDDD ass banging on my window from outside. ofc i, being a goddamn scaredy cat, dont push open the curtains immediately. eventually i do, but its too late. all i see is a blue car driving off and hear loud giggling and some girl yelling "drive drive!" soooo, i go to my sister, the only other person in the house, and tell her what happened; getting on the phone with my mom right afterwards. my mom is able to confirm that the car was kat's through kat's mom's facebook, so theres that. i'm such an incredibly paranoid person and i have an anxiety disorder (woop woop) and this has been freaking me out so bad. weee even contacted the police to put it on record because theres been a ton of incidents between teenagers getting shot, stabbed, hurt really bad, in my area as of late. my mom set up a phone call with the other girl's mom tomorrow, and we have enough to press charges for harassment and stalking in my state.
look, i know to some people who deal with this stuff, my reaction is a bit ridiculous. and, maybe it is a little but, this is crazy to me. its just been going on for so long and i seriously am not a fighter. id much rather use my words and i know thats cringey but its true; i also know 100% if this girl did get physical with me i would lose badly. last thing i need is a vid of me getting my ass beat going around town, dont need any of my exes seeing that and laughing at me.
its been messing with my mental really bad as well. ive been pacing around the house making sure all curtains are closed and all doors are locked since it happened. i think its funny sometimes but atp i just genuinely want it to stop forever. getting played like an idiot was already enough, but having this girls gf come after me consistently for over a year and now coming to my house (still dk how she got my address) makes it 100000x more annoying.
hopefully this story entertained someone, but on a real note. if anyone has any advice, anyone more experienced, maybe even a parent, please. mine have been relatively supportive but, theyre stressed out about it too. i feel like a scared little kid haha, could really use a good talking to about this entire thing.
tldr: had a thing with a girl, girl was having a thing with another person at the same time (i had no idea). other person found out about this after her and said girl started dating and has been on a rampage on me ever since. sending me threats, constantly texting me after being blocked, sending forged screenshots of me saying awful things to my school's principal, finding my mom's number and pretending to be someone i knew trying to get my phone number, pretending to be someone i knew to get me to come out of my house to "hang out", and finally coming to my LITERAL house and banging on windows and shit. someone with experience pls help, could use some advice for sure. dont know what to do, been very paranoid.

2023.06.10 06:04 Dark_Link_1996 My final thoughts about Tears of the Kingdom & the Ganon Boss Fight
Spoilers about the Game & Boss Fight.
I finally completed Tears of the Kingdom.
I love all the new features they added, I like how we can fuse stuff to make them even more OP! I love how we can create anything we want! I love the rewind ability so much! It's saved me so many times! I like how we can just wall breach/ teleport to the top of some stuff by the phase through ability!
I loved the shrines! I love how they're not all copy & paste! They're very unique & very original! You can go from figuring out how to cross a quick sand field to being stripped of everything and proving your worth!
Seeing the First King of Hyrule Rauru & The First Queen Sonia after Zelda gets teleported back to beginning of the Hyrule Kingdom was crazy!
Seeing what lead up to the great war! Seeing Ganon leading the Gerudo, seeing the original Sages, seeing Zelda transforming into a Dragon, seeing all that was breathtaking and mind-blowing!
The Boss Fights were a mixture of Easy & Hard!
Imo the hardest boss fight for the sages was Queen Gibdo. All the other Gibdos were a pain to kill even with the lightning power!
The hardest temple in terms of activating all the switches was the Wind Temple.
I love how you can get all the original Amibo content and armor from side missions and from exploring the deep dark!
I loved the story telling! I love how some Characters actually grew up!
When I found out that Zelda was the Light Dragon, that was very unexpected!
Then the fight with Ganondorf. It blew my mind with how OP he was! I came in with about 1.5 rows of heart and he managed to bring me down to 3! He even managed to destroy the Hylian Shield! I barely took it out for the final fight & with a few attacks, he managed to break it and break some of my hearts!
Phase One: Very interesting, seeing him regain his strength and power.
Phase 2: That's when he started to get difficult! When I saw how big the healthbar was getting! His attacks hit like a truck & his ability to Dodge attacks like Link does was crazy to see.
Phase 3: Dark Beast Ganon 2.0 but way cooler! I can't believe Ganon became a Dragon and Zelda just zoomed towards us to help us fight Dragon Ganondorf. I love how when it's time to deal the killing blow, I'm not sure if the game forces the Master Sword or not, but using it, to deal the final blow was awesome!
Seeing the First King of Hyrule Rauru & The First Queen Sonia with Link, helping to turn Zelda back to Human was just epic!
If I could go in again blind, I'd do it as this was a great game!

2023.06.10 06:04 Chase33308 Not holding boost.
| || |
Hi guys I'm having an issue with my beloved 2004 WRX Wagon. I recently swapped in a JDM Ej205 w/ AVCS (However AVCS is deleted properly) and now I'm finnaly in the process of an E- tune. Whilst sending my tuner datalogs he noticed that the car is building boost however it is not holding boost. I hit target boost most the time (18lbs) at around 3200 rpm hold for 1 second then start to drastically drop in boost down to as low as 8lbs sometimes. I then thought to smoke test a few spots, intake and exhaust to see if there are any leaks of some sort and couldn't come up with a leak that had to do with boost. All the hoses and clamps seem tight however my wastegate might be the culprit of all this. I noticed the actuator must have been damaged during shipping and has a slight dent. I also have videos of a pull demononstarting a strange fluttestutter noise upon accleration Any advice would be appreciated thank you! 😊. (This pull Max boost 17.6 at 3250 drops too 9lbs at 6700rpm) submitted by Chase33308 to WRX [link] [comments]
2023.06.10 06:02 nctmods [POLL] Should r/NCT join the blackout on June 12-14th to protest Reddit’s API changes?
As you probably know, a recent Reddit policy change threatens to kill many beloved third-party mobile apps, making a great many quality-of-life features not seen in the official mobile app permanently inaccessible to users. In response, a large number of subs on this platform will be turning private (i.e. “going dark”) for 48 hours starting June 12th in protest to these changes.
We understand that this is a lot of information to process and a complicated and fast-developing affair. So while we have discussed the blackout as a mod team amongst ourselves, we want to reach out to you, our community members, and hear your thoughts and opinions on joining the blackout. To provide some context and help make an informed decision, we’re going to break down some key points. The poll on NCT's participation in the blackout is below.
What exactly is going on?
In April, Reddit announced updates to their API data
. API (Application Programming Interface) is basically the system that allows programs to communicate. In this case, it’s how apps receive and send data to and from Reddit. Third-party apps - Apollo, RiF (Reddit is Fun), Infinity, and BaconReader to name a few of the big ones - have been allowed access to API for no cost, which in turn allowed these TPAs to provide users with a more personalized, functional, and seamless mobile experience. Reddit followed up with the figures on how much they’d be charging for API requests starting July 1st, revealing an obscenely large price and a short timeframe that will essentially kill all third-party apps. iOS app Apollo announced its upcoming closure
, as did Reddit is Fun
for Android. The Apollo dev, Christian, made an informative post
where he gives his thoughts as well as breaks down the logistics and costs involved. He estimates that Reddit's new pricing will cost Apollo $20 million a year, and the RiF dev echoes
that it will be in the same ballpark for them.
How will this impact me as a Reddit user?
While we don’t have any data on how many of our users rely on TPAs to access Reddit and NCT
, we do know it’s a non-zero number. These users will be cut off from viewing and participating in content unless they switch over to the official Reddit app. Even if you don’t use these apps or only browse via desktop, this new policy reveals that Reddit is further shifting away from its historically user-driven/focused core.
By far the most affected group will be the disability community, specifically blind and visually impaired folks
. Reddit simply does not provide them with the accessibility features they need - the tools that would make browsing and using the platform possible within Reddit’s own website and app. Most, if not all of the community, relies on third-party apps with accessibility features to effectively interact with Reddit and also mod their subs.
This change also goes beyond affecting the user experience; it will impact how effectively moderators on this platform can perform mod actions. A lot of mods teams depend on external tools that are exclusively available outside of the official app and website to maintain their communities and keep things organized and tidy. Modding on the official Reddit app is cumbersome and buggy
, and the changes to fix this have been notoriously slow to come. All this adds stress to already worn-thin mod teams on this platform
, who volunteer their time to help their communities thrive. We may also be losing (partially or fully) other valuable resources that rely on accessing Reddit’s API, like Reveddit and Unddit.
Today (the 9th), the CEO of Reddit held an AMA
to address the top concerns around the API changes, to an unsatisfying result, further breaking the trust between the platform's users and its admins - please see the ModCoord's summary and response here
What are the mod team's thoughts and course of action, should the community choose to join the blackout?
The majority of our mod team feels that even the blackout will likely not result in any changes from Reddit, joining for the third-party app developers, disability community, mods, and users of this platform to show solidarity is reason enough. But, we also acknowledge that you guys might feel differently, as for many of you, this this sub is a resource and a safe place to visit. Thus, we wanted to open up a dialogue to get a read on your thoughts regarding joining the blackout, as well as to address any concerns regarding accessibility and third-party app use
within our corner of k-pop Reddit.
The plan as it stands now: on June 12th PST 12am (4pm KST) many subreddits
will turn private and will be inaccessible to users. The blackout will span 48 hours, however, some subs will remain closed indefinitely, until they feel proper recourse is taken by Reddit to effectively address their concerns. For more information please visit ModCoord
were to join in, after the 48 hours we would open back up and allow content that happened during that period to be posted retroactively. The sister sub memeculturetechnology
will also go private. NCity events during this period:
- NCTzen (fan club name) anniversary - 12th KST
- Ten at the YSL show in Berlin - 12th CST
- Taeil's 29th Birthday - 14th KST
If you have any comments, questions, or concerns please drop them below and we will monitor this thread and respond to them as soon as we can! And as always, our modmail is open if you have anything you’d like to express to us privately.
This poll will remain open for 48 hours.

2023.06.10 06:00 Depressed_Dick_Head I Found Out that My Dad Told My Mom that He Would Divorce Her if She Got Fat
TW: Domestic Violence, Domestic Abuse, fatphobia
Hello All, I'm new to this Sub. I'm (22F) Indian and have been dealing with symptoms of depression, hence my username. Let's say that my dad hasn't been the best husband to my mom. They're both in their 50s and have stayed married for a long time. The best that I can disclose on this sub is that my dad used to be physically, verbally, and emotionally abusive to my mom when I was little. After living in the US for more than 10 years, my dad treated my mom so much better when I started to go to college. Unfortunately I've been getting symptoms of depression and things were going downhill since then (at college), and things seem to be getting worse.
The thing about my mom is that she was raised as very Christian and in a culture where talking to the opposite sex was strictly prohibited. My dad (raised in that same culture where talking to the opposite sex was strictly prohibited) was not raised Christian but later converted and married my mom (with her parents' permission). Since my dad wasn't raised in an urban area, my dad was treating my mom horribly (verbally, emotionally, and physically abusive). But again, since I went to college, my dad started treating my mom like a whole human being and an equal partner. I was so happy my dad was a much better person and treating my mom well.
Another thing is that I'm overweight and both of my parents always comment negative things about my weight. One day, when my mom was telling me about how upset she was with me and exercise (I wasn't exercising much, she dragged me to the gym, and the last thing I wanted to do was exercise so I did the bare minimum because she dragged me to the gym), she disclosed that my dad long ago before marrying her pointed to a fat woman (family member) and told her that if she got fat, he would divorce her. This of course got me upset and angry at my dad to the point that I'm posting this here.
I absolutely hated how my father treated my mother, which also made me weary around men and guys in general and made me very scared to date. I even used to express my disgust with my dad's behavior and would ask my mom why she wouldn't leave him. My mom's refusal to leave my dad so that she can be there for me showed me that abuse victims couldn't just simply leave if they're in an abusive relationship. Now my mom disclosing this information about my dad threatening to divorce her if she got fat just makes me so angry that it took quite a bit of nerve to prevent myself from getting visibly angry with my father. As much as I want my dad to get better, I just couldn't help but want to cry and hopefully post this to cope somehow. Since experiencing this secondhand abusive relationship, I've been much more sympathetic towards my mom and tried not to express overt disgust for my dad (I used to express how much I hated that my dad was an abusive asshole to her and she would get defensive, which I think made her feel helpless) and just tried to have no judgement towards her and be there for her (I think I might be my mom's only person to confide about my father's behavior to).
I also absolutely hate her excuses for my father's horrible behavior (she says things like men are wired to be attracted to thin, beautiful women so if their wives got fat then men would just leave them or men are wired to want sex so I shouldn't dress provocatively or a man might rape me). After hearing about the terrible things my dad would say/do to my mom, it just made me incredibly sad that my mom and dad didn't grow up in a culture/environment where men would treat women around them with dignity and respect (since living in the US, I think my dad started to treat my mom more like a human being and an equal after looking around to see other married couples doing that) so it made both of them just think that treating women like shit was normal and perfectly fine. It also made me vow that I would never put up with any man like or worse than men like my father, especially men that would say disgusting shit like "if you get fat I'm going to leave you".
As of now, I'm just really sad and angry and I feel like I want to cry and do something petty towards my dad like let's say that my dad and I are watching TV and we see a man be an abusive, disrespectful dickhead to his gf/wife and I laugh and say something like "good thing no men in my family would ever do/say something like that", as a an act of the "bombastic side eye" (I feel kind of cruel and mean for typing this). Sadly I have a feeling that if I were to do this my dad would not gaf about what I had to say and would probably say something like "maybe if you were skinnier more men would treat you better" just to shut me down (and yes, he has done something like this before just to shut me down). But I won't do anything petty just for my mom's sake, and just post my thoughts on here. Overall, the title of this post just brought me back to horrible memories that I never thought I would have to revisit and of course isn't making my depression symptoms any better :/ and am vowing to not ever put up with men like or worse than my dad and if I somehow miraculously get a partner, he would be so much better, treat me well, and I treat him well and live happily ever after as a healthy couple.

2023.06.10 06:00 Interesting-Ad3759 AG Team Design is Brilliant!
Hi guys, I just wanted to leave a good review of the game's team building mechanic!
I've considered several times on who should I save my currency. I was able to pull for Asura real early. Got Ryugiri in the selector. I have skipped Tsuky and now Osiris. Contemplated if I should spend my savings on S Poseidon. Lost my pity to Tyr. Got downvoted recently on this sub for even asking if I should spend my Shifted Stars on a Standard Banner. Pulled for S Poseidon for the heck of it. Now, I'm having more fun to finally have both my Vidar and Leviathan unbenched in their own Freeze team!
Then, I read through this sub again. S Poseidon is a subpar DPS. I couldn't care less! Vidar and Leviathan are both surprising me with their big damage numbers! I'm just glad to play S Poseidon who's holding enemies down so both my freeze-hungry AI's could drop hell against mobs!
Then, I had to face reality. I opened Recurring Dreams. Realized that most bosses are immune to freeze. I have Asura, Ryugiri and Nuadha in my main team. I still need a third team. And then, I realized that I don't have many materials left to make a third team. Decided to run a duo first with Ryugiri + Nuadha, I was able to beat Kusherfang until the fourth stage! And then I used my three Ice gals against Halphas. Broke a bit of sweat but still pulled through! The tough one is Orochi. So I'm currently not so confident with how to deal with her using just my Asura. Read through a bit in this sub again. Learned that Asura + Zenkibo's skillchain grants max Trace to allies, which would then be perfect for Tyr! Zenkibo has a few intels left before I'm able to raise her to Omega! So I have my gameplan on raising both Tyr and Zenkibo against Orochi this week!
Just wanted to say that this amount of flexibility in building team comps is refreshing for a gacha. I'm a PGR player who struggles building rigid element teams. But the variety of elements in Aether Gazer may seem hard to grasp at first. Left me with an impression that I'd need to build eight teams for each element. I started with my Fire team with Asura + Ryugiri. And, then built my Ice team. Eventually, I started splitting Asura from my Fire team because her synergy with Zenkibo + Tyr is ideal for Trace comps! If I didn't lose my pity to S Tyr, I would still be able to build A Hera!
Initially, I was saving my Precise Scan Vouchers for Hades. Been reading that she is a MUST pull in the future (hench, why I haven't used any for Tsuky and Osiris). Instead, I'm feeling more comfortable now to skip Hades herself. My gameplan has changed from what I have initially read from veteran guides.
I'll just pull and save for whoever I want! I'll be farming Jin-ei next so I could get Shinou buff to Ryugiri + Nuadha. Pull for S Hera so I could finally unbench Apollo + Tyr to make the perfect Light + Olympus team! And then bring back Asura with Ryugiri + Nuadha when I finally have Anubis + Bastet + Jin-ei!
I don't want to annoy people by comparing AG to PGR. No doubt that meta exists for both games and that Hades will be a top tier unit even in CN 2.0+. But it's just so refreshing to have my eyes set on one goal from the start (skip Osiris, pull Hades, pull Thor, then pull Osiris) and eventually realize that the real "meta" are the friends we pulled for gacha along the way.
I'm no longer saving up for Hades nor Thor. Instead, long-term planning 12 months from now for either a Luliang + Oceanus/Gengchen team or Luliang + Meng/Enlil team.
Since truthfully, I only started Aether Gazer to become a Luliang main.

2023.06.10 05:59 Total-Vehicle7197 Boundary Wall Fiasco - Legal Advice Needed
My not so friendly neighbour (sadly a close relative) who:
- Illegally converted our old home wall which FIL had built to his home wall (we've now demolished that portion and rebuilt allowing enough setback as per city norms. FIL had constructed that area violating city norms which we've now rectified. That wall which was part of our home once is now a boundary wall. Our renovation and his construction was at the same time. It was under the pretext that FIL has encroached his land and built the wall. There was a smaller boundary wall on his side which he conveniently demolished.
- Tresspassed into our property and took off with the cement breaker so that we cannot break that wall (we retrieved the item through police and as per the sub inspector's advice, we recalculated the boundary wall through revenue departments and it has come to notice the wall is indeed in our land, we've a standing complaint with local self govt for illegal construction against him, for construction without proper written notarized consent, that is the only way he can prevent the wall from coming down).
- Verbally abused my wife, her father so that we cannot prevent his workers from entering our terrace for construction of his home.
Is now demanding we reduce the height of one boundary wall, which we constructed recently after the tresspassing/burglary from him so that he can facilitate putting a roofing sheet on his side of the property. He has roofing sheet installed there, which now rests just above the wall. Technically, as boundary walls go, half of that wall belongs to us and half to him, while the entire wall was constructed by us, spending our money.
I wanted to know what would happen if we refuse this demand (mind it, it was a demand, not a friendly chat, not a request, plain demand, as if he is our messiah)

2023.06.10 05:54 DnDBambi Random Nighttime Wilderness Encounter Table
| || | submitted by DnDBambi to UnearthedArcana [link] [comments]
So I'm running SKT and they have a nicely detailed random encounter table for day time travel, but I also really wanted something for the nighttime while the party are trying to safely rest. So I made this!
I added a few unique ideas/suggestions I'd seen around the internet while also creating a few of my own. I had my own party in mind for this (4 x Lv. 6) but I'm hoping it's universal enough to adapt for any party!
Feel free to use and let me know what you think :)
Random Nighttime Wilderness Encounter Table
- At the beginning of each night/long rest, roll a d20. On a result of 12-20 a nighttime encounter occurs. Roll a d100 and consult the table based on the party's current location
- Roll a d4 (reroll 4s) to determine if the encounter occurs on the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd watch of the night
- Once they have their first nighttime encounter, the d20 range shrinks by two for every future nighttime encounter thereafter until they reach the next settlement, upon which, the range resets. This is to prevent there being an encounter every single night they're on the road and not bogging down gameplay. Feel free to adjust these DCs if you want less or more random encounters.
- After first nighttime encounter, new range = 14-20
- After second nighttime encounter, new range = 16-20
- After third nighttime encounter, new range = 18-20
- After four nighttime encounter (and every encounter after) a Nat20 must be rolled to receive a new encounter
Encounter Table Notes: Abominable Yeti:
- A single abominable yeti ambushes the party hungering for flesh and blood. If the party manage to defeat this yeti, there is a 30% chance that 1d3 regular yetis show up after battle, drawn in by the sounds of combat and the scent of blood
- You can choose between bandits or barbarians for this encounter based on the location and frequency of previous encounters
- 1 bandit captain and 3d6+2 bandits
- Mounted on riding horses
- 25% chance they attack without warning
- Promises the party not to attack if they 'pay a toll' (no less than 100gp of treasure)
- Is this a potential way to introduce the 'Happy Fun Ball'?
- Treasure: Each bandit carries a pouch containing 1d10gp. The bandit captain’s pouch holds 2d10gp and 1d6 gems worth 100gp each
- Uthgardt Barbarians:
- Hostile group of Uthgardt barbarians made up of 4d6 tribal warriors, and 1 Uthgardt shaman (Appendix C). If the total number rolled is great than 20, add 1d3 berserkers and a tribal chieftain (berserker w 90hp)
- If dealing with the Gray Wolf tribe, use the werewolf stat block for all berserkers and chieftains (+90hp) and add 1d4 wolves as animal companions
- Uthgardt Barbarian General Info
- Black-haired and blue-eyed people
- Take their name from Uthgar Gardolfsson, a hero chief who battled giants and conquered much of the North before ascending to godhood
- Currently 11 tribes scattered across the north
- They speak Bothii (their own language) and most speak common
- Their spirit mounds are sacred as it's a place where tribe members gather to revere Uthgar, honour their ancestors, make sacrifices to their totem animal spirit, and choose a new Great Chief
- Uthgardt fear magic so much so that they attempt to kill and dismember any spellcasters they meet
- Tribal shamans aren't attacked because their power comes from spirits of their dead ancestors
- Tribes will unite against a common enemy, like a giant (whom they hate most of all)
- Each tribe consists of 1 Great Chief, 2-5 chieftains, and 1-3 shamans depending on the size of the tribe

- Potentially run a surprise encounter if the party ever goes to Neverwinter
- The tribe roams in packs with ordinary wolves
- Will hunt down and kill those who survive their attacks to prevent the spread of lycanthropy to non-tribal members
- The only members of the tribe who possess lycanthropy are the chieftains and berserkers. The rest of the tribe are regular tribal warriors
- In an encounter have all barbarians start out in human form, then have them use their 'Shapechanger' action on their first turn to turn into a Hybrid or Wolf form and freak the party out
- Lycanthropy Cure: Can be cured with a 'Remove Curse' or 'Greater Restoration' spell

- Boorvald has 6 sons and 3 daughters, each of whom was given an "Oathbow" from the tribe's elf neighbours as a gift of friendship
- The tribe contains tribal warriors from other tribes who came to the Grandfather Tree, gained enlightenment, and forsook their allegiances to pledge to help the Tree Ghosts protect the Grandfather Tree
- Depending on the location, this can be represented as bioluminescent lights or more of a aurora borealis in the night sky
- The party, or person on watch, notices a faint glow coming from nearby in the camp. A small pond (or tree/shrub/etc) is emitting a faint, beautiful glow that seems to be a wonder of nature
- Describe how the lights beautifully dance and shimmer in the night
- The effect is harmless and the party can spend as much or as little time engaging with it as they want
- 2d4+1 vine blights and 2d4+1 needle blights attack the party in the night
- The vine blights move in close and camouflage using their False Appearance ability. Once they're within 20ft, they run forward and use their Entangling Plants ability to subdue the party
- The needle blights then move within 30ft and release a volley of needles at the party from a distance
- Alternatively, the party may happen to set up camp in a congregation of unmoving vine blights who are relying on their False Appearance to strike when the party is caught off-guard. The needle blights join in later in the combat
- A single bodak is drawn to the party's campsite by the light/noise, following its mission from Orcus to spread death across the Material Plane
- Any non-war trained animals will flee right before this encounter takes place
- If it fits in your narrative, the bodak can be a fallen NPC that one of the players used to know. It is seeking out all allies and enemies from its past life to wipe them from existence
- Increase the HP if a single bodak doesn't pose much of a challenge
- 3d4 dire wolves encircle and ambush the party at night
- The wolves won't attack outright. They will surround and then slowly close in on the party, giving anyone a chance to do something that might scare them off before combat begins (PC Intimidation check vs Wolves Insight check)
- Potentially nominate a pack leader that will have an impact on how this plays out
- If the party don't do anything or fails to intimidate the wolves, they will attack
- If things aren't going well for the party, you can have the wolves' survival instinct kick in if their numbers are reduced to less than the number of still-threatening PCs
- 1d4+2 displacer beasts ambush the party either for food or just general sport
- One displacer beast might lash out at the party in an attempt to draw them away from the group to a location where the rest of the pack are waiting for a bloodier ambush
- 1d4 ghosts appear and attack the party
- If a 1 is rolled, a solitary, sad-looking ghost appears in the middle of their camp and sings a haunting song, then walks to where its grave is marked by a filthy stone. If the party ignore the ghost or leave the grave alone, nothing happens and the ghost remains suspended in the air looking at the grave until the party leaves. It they clean the grave site out of respect for the dead, the ghost disappears and turns into a shower of 777 silver pieces. If they desecrate or disrespect the grave for some reason, it attacks
- If it attacks, bump its HP up to 60 so it poses somewhat of a challenge
- 1d4+4 ghouls attack the party led by 1 ghast
- The ghast will give orders to the ghouls to attack who it feels is the strongest party member
- If ghouls are attacked while feasting on a paralysed creature, they will drag their prey their full movement (half speed) away while also continuing to use their bite on their paralysed victim
Magical Glowing Mushrooms:
- 1d4+1 giant constrictor snakes slither into the campsite and attempt to snap up a tasty meal
- You can have the snakes appear and pause, waiting to see the party's reaction, to give your PCs a chance to do something that might prevent this from being a combat encounter
- Tasha's Cauldron of Everything - Magic Mushrooms (pg. 166)
- The party stumbles across a collection of magic mushrooms near their campsite, radiating this magical glow
- Those proficient in Medicine, Nature, or Survival can surmise that these are not naturally forming mushrooms and with a DC12 roll, can recall stories of magical mushrooms and how some can save lives or bestow unusual powers when consumed
- If a mushroom is eaten, roll a d10 to determine its effects:
- 1: The creature’s skin turns an unusual colour. Roll a d4:
- 1 - Purple with yellow splotches
- 2 - Bright orange with tiger stripes
- 3 - Tree-frog green with red squiggles
- 4 - Hot pink with yellow spots
- This change is permanent unless removed by a Greater Restoration spell or similar magic.
- 2: The creature gains the enlarge or reduce effect (50 percent chance of either) of the Enlarge/Reduce spell for 1 hour.
- 3: The creature regains 5d8 + 20 hit points.
- 4: Vocally, the creature can only cluck and croon like a chicken. The creature can also understand and speak to chickens. This curse lasts for 1 hour unless ended by a Remove Curse spell or similar magic.
- 5: The creature can understand and speak all languages for 1d4 days.
- 6: The creature gains the benefits of the Telepathy spell for the next 24 hours.
- 7: The creature gains the benefits of the Speak with Plants spell for 8 hours.
- 8: The creature immediately casts the Time Stop spell, requiring no components. Constitution is the spellcasting ability for this spell.
- 9: The creature immediately casts the Detect Thoughts spell, requiring no components. Constitution is the spellcasting ability for this spell.
- 10: Magical mists pour out of the creature’s eyes and ears, acting as a Fog Cloud spell for 1 hour that is centred on the creature and moves with it.
- An old halfling woman with a small glaive will approach the party's campsite looking for a place to rest and some company to talk to
- The glaive is a custom weapon made for a halfling that she's had since she was a young woman. She's pretty handy with it but getting quite slow in her older age. It's her only form of protection as she travels
- The old woman is really an oni who has used it's Change Shape ability to be able to get closer to its prey
- When the oni feels the party is no longer believing its lies or has completely let their guard down, it will attack
- This attack may begin with a Cone of Cold to surprise the party, and then on its next turn it will transform into its true giant form. Or it could also start with the oni transforming prior to combat, then on its first turn casting Invisibility on itself to create a sense of fear amongst the party
- A loud, deep hooting sound can be heard throughout the night, not close but not too far from the campsite. The hooting sounds like it comes from something much louder than a regular owl
- Players who made a successful DC12 Perception check, notice off in the distance a pack of 5 owlbears slowly moving through the terrain in single-file
- There is a large owlbear at the head of the line, and another large owlbear bringing up the rear. In the middle of them are three smaller offspring
- They don't appear to be hunting at this moment, just moving from A to B
- Unless the party does something to draw the pack's attention, they will move on into the night
- 1d4+1 hunting owlbears will spring into the party's campsite, hunting them for food
- If a total of 5 is achieved and you feel this encounter is way too deadly for your group, have the hunting pack be a family made up of two adult owlbears and three younger offspring (40hp) who are hunting for their first time (no multiattack)
- If an offspring is killed, the parents will fight to the death with unbridled fury seeking vengeance
- If both parents are killed off, the offspring will flee
- If only 2 owlbears are rolled and you feel this encounter too simple, max out their hit points (91hp)
- A glimmering, white pegasus descends from the sky and lands not far from the party's campsite, looking for a place to drink, eat, or temporarily rest
- If this occurs along a road/trail, the pegasus won't land, but will instead gracefully soar past the party, basking in the night air
- Pegasi are usually quite jumpy, so will immediately take off into the sky if any loud noises are made or it is attacked
- However, if a good-aligned character can quietly approach and succeed on a DC15 Animal Handling check, the intelligent creature will stay grounded and watch the character as it approaches
- Narrate a peaceful interaction between the two before the pegasus takes its leave and flies off into the night
- If a character tries to mount the pegasus they will need to succeed on a DC25 Animal Handling check
- A failure will result in the pegasus bucking them and flying off
- A success, and the pegasus will just stand there, MAYBE briefly trot around, before indicating for the character to get off and then saying goodbye and flying off
- 1 revenant stumbles into the party's campsite, appearing initially like a zombie, but will begin speaking to the party. Very much unlike a zombie.
- The revenant says he has come to seek justice for the wrongs the party did to him, killing him in such a brutal manner and taking the life of his greatest love, Kella. The party will then see past the unfamiliar face and recognise him as the slain leader of the Seven Snakes, Xolkin
- As Xolkin has sworn vengeance on the party, he can now only be completely destroyed by either using a Wish spell when his soul is bodiless, the party just straight-up dying, or the party survives for over a year from when the vengeance was enacted. After one of these has occurred, the Xolkin's body will crumble to dust and his soul will fade into the afterlife
- If Xolkin can't beat them in this first encounter, next time he appears, it will be with weapons and backup (spectres, wights, ghasts, etc). He won't quit until he is successful, making sure each future encounter is harder and more challenging
- The clouds final erupt and the remainder of the night is filled with thundering rain and high winds
- Rain can be replaced with a blizzard if the party is in the upper mountains or far-north sections of the continent
- Unless one of the party members has a way to avoid/negate the rain and wind (such as Leomund's Tiny Hut for example), the party has a very restless nights sleep
- They gain the effects of a Long Rest but everyone also gains one level of Exhaustion and cannot recover any previous levels of exhaustion
- A single wight leads an undead army to attack the party. The army is made up of 2d6 zombies and 1 ogre zombie
- If the number of zombies rolled is less than 6, replace the single ogre zombie with 1d4 ogre zombies
- The wight will send the horde of zombies in first while it attacks from range to begin with, then moving in closer for melee
- A figure will emerge out of the darkness, staggering a little. They make no effort to stealth either. They are friendly and will comply with whatever reasonable requests the cautious PCs make
- They will reveal themselves to be a vampire, in dire need of blood. They will ask for a donation, but if refused, will walk away disappointed
- If the player does contribute blood, the vampire will thank them, and next time this encounter is rolled, the vampire may have a gift for them (magic item, gold/platinum, jewels, etc)
- The player may choose to drain some blood into a vial or pot for the vampire to then drink, or they may choose to let the vampire bite them. Regardless of the way, they will take 1d6 piercing/slashing damage (based on how they draw the blood), then 3d6 necrotic damage, and their max HP is reduced by that amount until the end of a long rest
- If concerns are raised, the vampire will assure them that a simple bite isn't enough to turn someone. They must be killed with a bite and then buried in the ground to rise as a vampire
- If the party is very brazen and choose to attack the vampire, it is the DM's choice whether the vampire straight away flees, or decides to bite a character to take some blood by force to teach them a lesson for their rudeness, then flee
- A cluster of 1d6+1 will-o'-wisps appear and start floating around the campsite
- Initially the wisps will appear as beautifully coloured, bobbing lantern lights offering hope and safety
- Eventually the wisps will surround the party and launch a surprise attack
- Alternatively, you can have the wisps attempt to lure the party away from the campsite by somehow beckoning them to follow. From here the wisps will lead the party into some sort of hazardous trap like quicksand pits or monster lairs so they can feed on the suffering of their prey and revel in their death screams
- If you are considering this option, potentially reduce the wisp numbers to only 1d4

Looking forward to hearing people's thoughts!
2023.06.10 05:54 Treading_DeepestWell Remembering the odd safe memories
Sleep, I've always loved sleep, or at least the escape of having to know or deal with the world around you. When you were asleep even screaming parents would quiet down, and abusive older siblings were forced to end their torment for a little while at least.
I became the master of faking sleep, to the point my husband and my grown kids do not know when I'm faking sleep. I've always known not to abuse my gift but I've always appreciated that gift, and have heard some of the juciest conversations that I will take to the grave lest it give away the trick.
I often faked sleep as a kid, that sweet sleep often avoided me as a small child. I hated being awake at night, being awake at night meant I would know if my dad entered my room to shoot me in my sleep. If I was awake I would make noise, but if I was asleep I just would never wake up and be in heaven, I was good with that. I just didn't want to be awake and know I was going to die. So I had to go to sleep.
I've always remembered that fear, but until today that memory was dissected in my mind from an odd but comforting memory related to sleep. I remembered that as a child I would hold Cassandra T.Bear close to my chest and imagine her in the back of my head and if I concentrated really hard I could turn my brain backwards and then Cassandra T Bear would hold me. Her arms would have the warmth and kindness of the neighbor who invested time and kindness into my world would give me.
I never thought about why a child would ever do that. In years of therapy I've never felt the need to share this silly inner working of a child mind. Kids are weird, they have crazy conjectures about the world. But it was more than a conjecture, it was a craving a longing, a need. I just needed to turn my brain around and Cassandra would there with her fuzzy warm kind arms.
They've discovered that meditation can help kids heal their brains from abuse and other adverse childhood events. I mean this is measurable in MRI studies.
I didn't know that before today. I broke the cycle of abuse and have been no contact with my family of origin for 13yrs. My kids remember them, but it was my kids that made me realize that we deserved better.
But even without my family causing drama my life has gone off the rails in the most bizarre and stressful way this past year. The nightmares are back, and I just want to go to sleep. I have remembered Cassandra and guess what her fuzzy kind arms are still there.
My youngest daughter (22), that lives 8hrs away and knows I'm having a tough time but I'm not an ass dumping everything on her as she engages in a new life adventure sent me The Deepest Well by Nadine Harris. It talks about the life long physical damage that is done to children that suffer a significant number of adverse childhood events(ACE). On a scale of 0-10, I'm a solid 8. When a child has significant ACE score they know the stress hormone cortisol floods the young brain to toxic levels causing permenate damage in the epigenetics that can be passed on. That this toxic stress reaction causes physical and mental health issues long into midlife..
Meditation reduces that stress hormone decreasing the physical and mental damage. Was it my longing for a comforting fuzzy hug the reason I was able to break the cycle? Is it the reason I have three sleep disorders? Or was the comfort of Cassandra that gave me the ability to disjoint three memories until today.
That in reaction to the fear of my father shooting me, every night I cracked the window by my bed, even in a UT winter. Then I would put all my stuffed animals under the blankets in a me shape, then I would push my matress just a few inches from the wall. Then I wedged myself down between the bed and wall holding Cassandra to my chest, then I would turn my brain around to enter Cassandra's arms.
I'm so thankful for a neighbor who imbued a teddy bear to get be through the darkest nights of my young life, I was maybe 6-7 when I first remember doing this until maybe Jr. High. I'm thankful for whatever reason I was able to break the cycle and have such a kind empathetic daughter who sent me The Deepest Well..

2023.06.10 05:49 tfisafurry I have an idea for a new robbery
Let me start off by saying I doubt this will come to reality. But I still wanna put it out there because I've thought about it a lot.
They don't really do anything with the water besides the ship so what if we got an update where the ocean around the island gets revamped like full on decorated and you can find occasional drops at the bottom. What if they could put a entire robbery down there like (not to rip of Minecraft) but like maybe a temple or something and you gotta get scuba gear or even maybe a submarine and that would open possibilities for more water vehicles. Maybe even have like a ship you can use to collect salvage and find stuff to sell. Of course cops would be able to do it too so they can make more money.
Just an idea like I said what do you all think?

2023.06.10 05:48 salor123 The start of a new tale (Storyborn act: 0)
New story time baby. This one would be about god of stories salor and if you know anything about gos salor's backstory then throw that out because I'm retconning it. Plus this is not part of the main salor but a different one. Also I'm don't going to fully work on it yet because I wanna take a break do this type of lore because I just finished SCP salor like 3 days ago lol and just need a break in total. So enjoy the beginning of this tale
The house of ideas. The house of ideas is where most stories are held. Stories about people, there, stories that are lost to time by people, there, if you even made a story it is there. Any story you could think of is stored there safely. Today was a important day for the one known as Salor has been accused of the act of going against the house of ideas.
Salor would be handcuffed with material that couldn't be broken by the most powerful of weapons. Two tall guards with golden armor that had black outlines and markings on them. They had strange looking helmets that even Salor never seen before with purple eyes showing out of them. They wield axes in their hands that in one slash could cut a planet in half. They would arrive at a giant door that went into what Salor could describe as a mansion that was from the 1900th century.
The two guards would put their hands on the door and push it open. The mansion would be far bigger inside than it was outside. It looked like it went on for an endless amount of time with bookshelves of stories. The bookshelves would be made out of the finest wood you could see in several lifetimes as they would hold several types of books about different people, different stories, different legends and far far more. The two guards would continue to bring Salor to where they are going. Salor would try to strike up a conversation.
“So where are we going?”
“I suggest you shut up defendant because your questions won’t help you.” the guard on the left of Salor would say.
“Whatever the boss decides.” Salor would say back.
Before Salor could look to his right, the right guard would grab his ax and would sweep his legs. Salor would be in the air for a bit as he would go back a bit. The guard would lift his ax over him and bring it down with the handle of it hitting Salor in the stomach. Salor would quickly be on the floor and coughing trying to recover from the heavy blow.
“SHIT, what was that for!” Salor would say looking at the right guard.
“Those who defined orders will be put back in line” The right guard would reply.
The two guards would grab Salor by the arms and lift him up where his feet couldn’t reach the floor and only dangle in the air. Salor would try to move his arms but it didn’t work a bit. The two guards would continue to bring Salor to where they were going. They would pass many bookshelves that contained many stories. When he took a closer look he could see they were ordered by series and what genres they were. After some time the three of them would arrive in what seems to be the middle of the grand mansion or library. There was also a book reception desk that was high up like it was a judge’s bench. The guards would drop Salor and kick him down onto the ground. His head would hit down ground as he would give a grunt. The two guards would bring down their axes and they would land right by his head, seeming like they were ready to kill him right there with no hesitation. Saloe was stuck there. His hands were handcuffed behind his back, he was laying on the ground not being able to get up, and finally two axes by his neck that could slice his head off like it was paper. Man, such place to be, his day isn’t going well.
Then up above in the air, two beings would appear.They would both be pitch black and had blue outlines on their clothing and even blue eyes.They would look far different from each other too with the taller one would have a appearance of a grown up woman that would be wearing a overcoat on and wearing a black and blue wedding hat. The other one would have the appearance of a small boy that is wearing a black and blue suit with dapper black shoes on. They would look at each other then look down to the guards and Salor.
“Is he the one who did it?” the boy would say.
“It seems like he is the one.” The woman would reply with.
“Who the hell are you-” salor would try to say but one of the guards would move his ax to have it touch his skin but not hurt it. Salor then went quiet not because of fear but because he was smart.
The two mysterious beings would look at each other and would descend down and where the library-like desks were they would sit down on their respective seats. The woman would pull out a file on the desk and would open it. The file was on Salor and the “crime” he did.
“Today is trial of the house on the character known as Salor who had committed the crime known as rujukanria or the act of disturbing the house of ideas in an act 2 type manner.” The woman would say.
“Woah woah woah there slow down, can anyone tell me what is happening here”. Salor would say in response.
Both of the guards would move their axes closer to his neck, but the boy would raise his hand making the guards move their axes back but still by his neck.
“The one known as Salor, you have been accused for rujukanria act 2. This means that you have knocked over a bookcase that damaged some books apart from the house of ideas.” the boy would say. He would nod to the lady and she would get out a picture. Could you even call it that or something for it looked like a picture but worked like a video. It would show a video of Salor purposely knocking over a giant bookshelf that contained lots of books and tales. It would soon stop as Salor would now have a shocked face.
“That can’t be me, I never even knew about this place until I actually came here.” salor would respond with.
“It sure does look like you and besides it even says in your story it shows you were going to do this and you were there to steal a very variable book” the woman would say with a serious yet disappointed voice.
“It couldn’t be me, it couldn't be…” Salor would look down a bit and realize something. He realized that the “Salor” on the video thing didn’t have a part of his ear was gone where he took a gunshot to the ear. “I was framed…” Salor would whisper to himself.
“What was that defendant?” the Left guard would ask him.
“I was f-”
Before he could finish his sentence he would be cut off by the boy with him raising his hand.
“I think we are done here, there is fine and clean evidence that supports your guilty Salor.”
Now both the boy and the woman would start to speak together
“We, the guardians of the house of ideas have decided to give Salor who has committed rujukanria act 2, shall receive-”
Suddenly a massive explosion would come from the north-westish of where they were. The guards would quickly get ready in a battle stance as they rushed over to the explosion. The two beings would look at each other and decide that the explosion was more important than the Salor trial. The both of them would teleport away leaving Salor alone.
“Should I go see what that was…maybe not”
Salor would get up and start to walk in a random direction that was south-west. He would walk until he saw a section of the library that had the stories of people he knew like old friends and comrades from war. He would continue to walk down the bookshelves and would soon arrive at a specific spot. He would notice that his story was also here too but also by three other versions of him? He didn’t know why there were 3 other books of his but he wasn’t too interested in those but his. He would grab his book and it had a green cover which made him confused. It also had some gold on it for effect which made Salor feel cool. He would flip through the book and he would be shocked that it told every detail throughout his long life even when he went into that long sleep. He would flip until the pages went blank. As he did he could see that his book would have purple markings on one of the pages. He would read it and it was just the exact detail that was on the picture thing. He knew it, he was framed. He didn’t know how but he wanted to know who and how they did it. He would close the book and start to carry it around with him.
He would leave where that around was after a bit of walking he would be lost. Then another explosion could be heard and he saw a yellow, black, and purple cloaked figure dash in front of him and start to race out of the place. Salor would run away and hide and as he predicted, some guards would rush over to where the mysterious figure would dash off too. Luckily they didn’t notice him. What was strange is that those two other people from before weren’t with them.
Yet soon, Salor could feel something. It felt like an unknown force was pulling him to something or somewhere. After the guards went away, chasing the mysterious figure, Salor would sneak away. He would walk for a bit until he would reach a more, far bigger bookshelf. It would have stories of many villains, heroes, and even gods. Salor would keep on walking until he found a green glowing book. This was the thing that was calling him. He would grab the book from the shelf and on the cover it would have the words “The story of the god of stories loki”. It would have green and gold colors on the cover and back. He would look at his book and he realized, they would look the exact same but with different words. He would open the book and would start to read the story about the god of stories loki.
He would sit there reading the story for what felt like hours even though only 30 minutes had passed. He would be done with the book after sometime and a look of excitement. He also felt that his body was a little strange. He would spot a mirror and would walk to it. As soon he looked in the mirror he could tell he was far different. He would have gold horns that tore through two spots on his hat that came from a gold thing that lined up against his hairline. His clothes would completely change with them now being a green overcoat with gold on them and white fluff on top of the coller. His pants would change to gray-blueish pants with brown boots on. Finally, he would notice that he would grow a foot taller now being 5’5.
“Holy shit…I look cool.” Salor would say to himself as he did a little spin.
He would soon walk away with him holding both of the books in his hands. He would walk out of the area of bookshelves. He would continue to walk around a bit until he arrived back into the center of the place and he would see the same exact two beings from before floating in the air talking to each other.
“You think that the mysterious figure would come back again?” The boy would say to the girl.
“I don’t think so. Just by his smirk I could tell that he was satisfie”d with stealing his book.” She would reply with.
“That would be troublesome just by itself. We also have to deal with that salor-” The boy would reply with but stop his sentence when he looked over to Salor and notice his new appearance
“It seemed like he changed.”
“His tale did go into action.”
“What the hell are the both of you talking about?”
The two beings would look at each other, seeming like they were talking to each other through their minds. After a bit they would be done and look down at Salor as he looked on, crossing his arms.
“We have decided on something, Salor.” The woman would say.
“Yea what is it?”
The boy would speak up “prove yourself to us. You have a brand new life thanks to that book. Prove to us you can be the next god of stories and prove your innocence.”
“Next god of stories?” Salor would say to himself and look down. He didn’t know what he meant to be the next god of stories but he needs to prove his innocence to survive.
“What do I get if I do prove myself?”
“The act of rujukanria act 2 shall be dropped, you will have free access to the library, and the respect from the two of us.” The woman would say.
Salor would think to himself again. Getting free from his charges was good and he was interested in the library. He would also get their respect but he conflicted on that part.
“I accept” Salor would say looking up at the two beings.
“Good.” The boy would say.
Now both of the beings would be talking together “as the guardians of the house of ideas mojiama, the woman of peace of the house, and trejiama, the boy of order of the house. Shall see if you are worthy of innocence or you are guilty, now- “
They would bring their right and left arms respectively up, pointing to the sky and then back down to Salor. Some blood would come out of his mouth and as he looked down, he could see 4 bar-like things would be stabbed into Salor. One in his right knee, one in his left shoulder, one in the abdomen area, and finally one in the heart.
“Survive” The both of them would finish their sentence.
Salor would start falling backwards and as he did, a hole would appear on the ground. He would fall into it and would start to fall father and father away from the house of ideas. Blood would quickly leave his body but couldn’t cover them. He would continue to fall though all of space seeing many universes, planets and many many more. What felt like an eternity, he would land on something. It was the ground of the void. A splash of blood could be heard as even more blood would come out. He would soon start to lose consciousness but before he did, he could see a tall man that was black as night would approach him. He couldn’t tell what he was or what he was wearing for his vision would be blurry. Soon he would pass out with the mysterious man standing over him.
To be continued

2023.06.10 05:48 Dead-Bowl-4572 Seaside (Season Four, Part Thirty) Getting Comfortable
"Best sleep I've ever had in a year," I said, yawning as I sat up in my cot and looked out the window.
Thankfully the room Kyle and I were handcuffed and locked in had a small porthole in the wall, but the glass was eight inches thick, making it nearly impossible for me to punch my way out.
"Fuck, you're awake?" Kyle asked, as he did push ups on the floor. "I've been trying my old prison workout. Hits different."
"Yeah, well I haven't been to prison yet, so I wouldn't know."
"It's also a huge fucking shame that Task Force Nova Compass Hunter hasn't found us yet. Thought those guys would be coming over here, guns blazing by now."
"Same, but looks like these guys are the real deal anyway. Can't wait for the super-informative job opportunities we'll be faced with today."
Someone slammed on the door, and after the beep of an electronic keycard, Dennis unlocked the door, backed by a dozen guards in riot gear, and Lucy.
"You can chill with the security," I said. "We won't pull anything."
"Correction, you won't do shit." Kyle said, wriggling his wrists from his handcuffs as he jumped up, kicking Dennis in the solar plexus and sending him flying.
The room went fucking wild as I sat back and watched, while Kyle started brawling with a dozen men at once, as his face and head were battered with nightsticks and tasers. He waded through half of them until Lucy finally jumped in, pulling him off and picking him up with one hand before slamming him against the wall, choking him. Kyle kicked her in the face and cracked her nose, and she yelped in pain before throwing him against his cot.
"You like that, yeah?" Kyle said, waving his fists in the air. "Roger, c'mere. Back me up."
"Nah, I know exactly how this is gonna end."
Kyle jumped and drop-kicked the fucking mob of guards at once, planting both of his feet into a riot shield and sending the crowd soaring.
"Why aren't they shooting at us?!" I yelled.
"We're too valuable to shoot, dumbass. Now break your handcuffs and start fighting."
I sighed, telling myself I would wait ten more seconds, and if nobody beat the shit out of Kyle by then, I would jump in to help.
"ROGER!!" He yelled.
Luci picked Kyle up and slammed him into the wall, and stared directly into his eyes, and grabbed his arms as he slowly fell woozy and slumped over.
"Fuck, fuck, fuck." I said, panicking. "What did you do?! Did you fucking kill him?!"
"Relax, he's alive. I just 'put him to sleep'."
"You know, that's the expression most people use to say they killed someone."
I slumped off my cot, standing up and stretching, yawning as I watched Luci and the guards drag Kyle into a cell somewhere below decks.
"So… he's like, really not dead, right?"
"Like I said, he's just fine. I can influence people's minds and emotions by touching them."
"So what's going on with me then?" I asked.
"Since you didn't go apeshit like your buddy," Dennis said, standing up and groaning as he rubbed his head. "We'll proceed as planned. You'll be going on an operation with our combatives team."
"Is Kyle coming with?" I asked.
"Fuck no, who knows what that unpredictable shit is going to do."
"I'm not going if Kyle's not going."
"Roger, I'll talk with my superiors and ask them what they think."
"Sounds fair. Should I get ready to go in a few hours?"
"Yeah, I'll come by here to pick you up near the evening. And, I'll tell you what came of Kyle."
I lied back down on my cot, taking a deep breath and falling back to sleep, waiting for the knock at the room's door calling me to action.
"It's time," he said, as he walked in.
"Fuck it, let's go." I said, stretching and yawning as I stood up.
"You haven't changed out of your fatigues, so I'll just give you the same kit and rifle we picked you up with, all freshly cleaned and loaded. Of course since you're still a high-risk person, we're not giving them to you until the mission officially starts. Follow me."
I got out and walked with him into the corridors, ducking under the steel pipes of the ship until we finally took a short flight of stairs to the main deck, overlooking the ocean, just as the sun began to set. He took me to the side of the boat, where there was a ladder on the side of the hull of the anchored ship, leading down to several airboats filled with armed men. I noticed Kyle was in one of the boats, having no weapons or gear besides a helmet, plate carrier, and a flashlight. He was handcuffed and his feet were shackled to a hundred-pound weight. Dennis tossed my gear and weapons down into the boat, as I climbed down the hull and jumped into the airboat.
"They'll guide you through the mission," Dennis said, before walking off.
The dozen men sitting in the airboat with me all had assault rifles, wearing balaclavas and dark camoflauge under plate carriers stuffed with magazines.
"Listen," one of the men, supposedly the leader, said as the boat started and zoomed away. "Our main objective is to meet with a demon to exchange the skull of one of the Five Leviathans for a demonic artifact we're selling. It might be a setup, so we're keeping our numbers high and risk low. Stay quiet, and don't even fucking think of running, we'll shoot you if you even breathe suspiciously. If you do manage to get away, we put an ankle monitor on while you were sleeping that will explode if you take it off or disable it."
"That's comforting," I replied. "How the fuck did you get a skull of one of the Five Leviathans? Which one is it?"
"Don't worry about it. Focus on shutting the fuck up and paying attention, genius."
Kyle and I sat across from each other in the airboat, sandwiched on either side by the armed mercenaries, as he kept trying to blink at me in morse code while whistling, but he stopped that when he got pistol-whipped. Our boat droned on and on until finally, I caught sight of a small, rocky island covered in trees in the horizon, rapidly approaching in the falling sunlight. The lack of tropical vegitation combined with the weather of our surroundings led me to believe we weren't anywhere near the equator. Most likely in the Pacific or Atlantic, I had gotten familiar to the Northern seas during the months I had spent on battleships during the holy war, as well as my time studying as a marine biologist.

2023.06.10 05:48 dollellama44 Back at it... for now
So I've been off MJ for about a little over a month. Had been consistently getting my fills for $25 until this most recent "shortage".
I didn't gain any weight while off and continued to lose an additional 3-4lbs. Mind you, I did go back to taking Phentermine during this time.
I was finally able to pick up MJ 10mg today, still at $25. Hoping that dropping down from 12.5 won't be an issue. I figure this is my last month on MJ unless I can get this formulary exception approved; so I want to make the best of it. I don't see myself paying $500+ a month with the newer coupon; especially since I didn't gain weight back while off of MJ.
This whole MJ ride has been wild. Seeing how insurance, practicioners, pharma treat weightloss is insane.
My insurance drug formulary doesn't cover MJ... because I work at a small company of under 100 employees. However, the very same insurance has a different formulary for larger companies...and guess what lol MJ was just added to that formulary. Ok 👍 lol Gotta love America.

2023.06.10 05:47 in_wonder Sudden difficulty getting let-down + supply drop after starting to pump
My 4-month-old started daycare this week 🥲. Our breastfeeding journey has been pretty smooth so far (except that we nurse 3x/night), which is a relief after I struggled with inconsistent and low supply with my first. BUT in the past two weeks or so, as I switched to pumping every other, and then every, weekday, my supply has dropped from ~10-12 oz over two sessions to ~5 oz.
Then the past few days I have had a hard time getting let-downs with my baby (but not the pump), with it taking several minutes of sucking that she's not generally willing to do and then the flow is coming in frustratingly weak. Lots of screaming, including at those 3 overnight wakeups!
What is happening?? What can I do about it?? I just ordered new pump parts and I'm going to up my frequency of pumping at work to every 3 hours max (I kept accidentally going 4). Help! I tried going to a lactation consultant with my first and it was so unhelpful. Does power pumping work for everyone?

2023.06.10 05:47 stevow- “I will have bad and unlucky future”
yup basically something that ocd tells me. If I don’t do what it says then something bad would happen. If I don’t pray or ask for forgiveness my future and career will go down or have bad luck. If I don’t repeat or pray or ask for forgiveness to my believes for the little mistakes, jokes or things I would like to do ocd tells me I will have a bad future and that I will fail. Like for example, I have this ocd of needing to pray or ask for forgiveness if I say something ocd doesnt want and as a content creator this really holds me back. I want to be happy and free to say what I want. If I lie and don’t hurt anyone I don’t want to feel guilty and anxious and I don’t want to have ocd telling me that I wont sleep tonight unless I do what it says and pray or ask for forgiveness.
Having a free life from this disorder is hard
I know exposure is the way. But if I miss a pray or ask for forgiveness or watch something like a clip from a movie on twitter which my ocd consider its a sin because its not suppost to be seen unless im in the movies and pay I would have to ask for forgiveness and or pray to relieve anxiety.
I want to be free. I want to joke without feeling guilty and if I lie without hurting anyone I don’t want to feel guilt.
Living in ocd is hard
so I deal with all of this just by exposing myself and feeling the anxiety?
If I don’t pray and or ask for forgiveness, which btw I most of the times end up in another ocd of repeating what I pray and or ask for forgiveness a lot. Then God and my believes would stop liking me.
sorry for the wall of text. I just feel that I want a to be free from thoughts.

2023.06.10 05:44 Leftylizard9085 I play a game they call "Sleep Points". Every night I hide under my blanket (Part 7)
Part 1 - https://www.reddit.com/nosleep/comments/11ovngn/i_play_a_game_they_call_sleep_points_every_night/
Previous Part - https://www.reddit.com/nosleep/comments/13deva8/i_play_a_game_they_call_sleep_points_every_night/
When I got home from school, even though I knew the clock wasn’t literally going to try to eat me alive like it always seemed to want to on weeknights, I still watched it intensely, dreading every minute that passed. Even though this had all been what I was hoping for over the course of the last week and a half, going through with everything I would need to do to meet up with Anastasia at her hour in the middle of the night still seemed way scarier than just dealing with the clock’s nightly threats against my life which, by that point, had become something of a routine for me.
At 11:00 PM, my parents looked like they had gone to sleep. I would wait another hour as Anastasia had advised. I would leave at midnight. And that wouldn’t be a problem since it was a Friday night, and my clock wasn’t going through its usual changes. By that time, the clock hadn’t started glowing or even turning the slightest shade of red.
When midnight did come, the clock was still in the same state as it was at 11. My parents were still asleep. They hadn’t even gotten up for a bathroom break. I turned on the kitchen lights, hoping it wouldn’t wake my parents up. It didn’t. I went to the kitchen table to take the keys to my father's truck. They weren’t there. I had no idea where else to look for them.
I tried looking all around the kitchen and living room. I checked mom and dad's bathroom. Nothing. I didn’t know how I would make my way to Anastasia’s house now. I could just picture her, spending all night at her back door, waiting for me to show up, without me ever coming. Maybe I'd find the keys tomorrow. But that seemed like a fat chance since dad wasn't gonna be driving anywhere tomorrow.
I wouldn't have him to find them for me. It looked like I’d have to wait a whole nother week on any answers now.
I had recently invested in a new watch. I had some allowance money left over from when I was a kid. My school has a little gift shop with small things like school-themed wristwatches, so after my last class of the day, I stopped by and picked up a College High watch so I could check the time without needing to look at the clock in my room or at my phone. I'm bringing this up because at around this point I was watching with increasing anxiety as time was passing by. According to the watch, the time now was 12:30 and I still didn’t have any access to my father’s car.
I was already feeling hopeless enough, just thanks to that fact, but then I remembered that I still didn’t even know how to get to Anastasia’s house.
Since I still didn’t know where the keys were and it didn’t look like I’d find them any time soon, I figured I’d take a break from looking, and go on my phone to look up her address on google maps. I knew I shouldn’t have been using my phone since it was apparently super important not to let it die. I figured it must've been one of those rules like keeping my head under the blanket when The Sandman showed up, along with the rest of my body. But I would only need my phone for a few minutes. Just enough time to look at google maps and sketch out a rough map of the route from my house to Anastasia’s.
The first thing I noticed when I typed in her address was that, thankfully, her house wasn’t too horrendously far away from mine. It would just be a 4-mile drive. So hopefully this meant that, if push did come to shove, I could still just walk there if I had too. I’d probably be late, but that would be better than not showing up at all. So, I at least had that as a back-up plan if nothing else. But it would still be risky. It would take a lot of time to walk there, and then to walk back. Maybe mom and dad would be up after all was said and done. Maybe they’d hear me coming back inside the house, regardless of how I made it to Anastasia’s. Maybe I’d wake up Anastasia’s parents too.
Since I only had an hour and thirty-five minutes left, I had no time to worry all that much about any of this though. I had to get to work, jotting down the path to Anastasia’s house. I would turn left out of my driveway, stay on that road for about a mile and a half, then turn right and stay on that road for another half-mile, then turn left for another mile, and then left again for a final fourth mile.
Another thing I noticed was that Anastasia lived out in the middle of absolute nowhere. I thought I did too, but Anastasia’s house was on a whole nother level of out there.
Fortunately, that meant I’d be driving pretty much exclusively on backroads, so it would literally be impossible to take a wrong turn after I made my first turn out of the driveway and the next right turn after that after about a mile and a half. It also meant that I would be pretty much guaranteed not to run into any other drivers, especially at that time of night. But I guess her remote address explained why she didn’t have the internet connection she would need to do a video call.
Since it was a quarter to 1 by that point, after I found out how to drive to her house, I put on all the layers I could find, took the flashlight that my mom had given me for the walk I had went on during the week prior, and started trying to walk over there, without my parents’ car, despite her recommendations. Even though it was four miles by car, I wouldn't have to worry about staying on the road if I just walked there. If I walked in a straight line, I could get there in just over 2 and half miles or so. I had decided to leave, not out of the front door, but out of the door in the hallway that led to the garage. That door made less noise than the front door.
Unfortunately, I started to get the sense that I hadn’t thought this plan through when I realized I would still have to open the garage door in order to make my way into the outside world. Which, yeah, made considerably more noise than the front door. But then I realized it didn’t matter, since I was gonna have to open the garage door anyway if I wanted to get the car out of the garage and onto the road. So, I had still made the right decision. Except no I hadn’t, because I had just remembered that I still didn’t have the car keys, and so I was supposed to be ditching the whole car idea anyway and had just randomly forgotten about all of that.
I know that all probably sounded pretty messy and wasn't very easy to follow, but maybe someone else reading with ADHD can relate. But anyway, confusing thought processes aside, I walked out the front door and started making my way to Anastasia’s on foot. It really was freezing though. I really did wonder if I could actually make it all the way to her house.
Before I even made it to the end of the driveway, I began to change my mind and decided driving really would be a more reasonable alternative. Obviously, the backroads wouldn’t even be close to snow plowed. But the snow only looked to be about maybe 6 or 7 inches deep, which was still driveable enough with the snow-proof tires that my dad had on his truck. This level of snow isn't all that uncommon around here, so those tires are pretty much a must-have for anybody living in deathly cold climates like us.
So, I could still drive despite the snow, albeit only very slowly what with how much the snow would slow me down. But I was supposed to be driving slowly anyway because I was only 14 and didn’t have a license. But I still couldn’t drive without those keys. Then I remembered I still had my bike in the garage. It was supposedly “all terrain”, so hopefully that meant it could handle the snow. I went into the garage, got my bike out, and tried riding it. Unfortunately, the tires on that bike weren’t even close to capable of handling the snow. I tried pedaling as hard as I could but hardly got anywhere before falling over. I had a feeling this would probably happen. It seemed like a dumb idea but, since I didn’t want to steal my dad’s truck and I couldn’t even seem to find his keys anyway, I figured it was at least worth a shot.
I was just about to say “fuck it” and try meeting Anastasia again on some other night when, just as I had put my bike down in the garage, I had seen that my dad had left behind his keys in the key slot of his car door. Apparently, the reason that they weren’t where they usually were was because my father had locked the truck and just forgot to take his keys with him. I turned the key sticking out of the driver’s side door and it opened. So I really could get inside of his truck after all.
I put the key into the ignition and then put it in reverse. The truck made quite a bit of noise when its ignition started, so I had just hoped that I hadn’t woken up my parents with that. Luckily, my garage is on the other side of the house from where my parents sleep, so the sound did at least have a long way to travel. Once I started backing the truck out of the garage and into the driveway, I ran into another problem. Since the roads weren’t plowed, they were just as snowy as anywhere else. So even with the rearview mirror, I had no idea where my driveway stopped and the road started. I figured I would just keep backing up until I felt like I’d gone far enough.
Far enough came sooner than expected though. Eventually, the car had very clearly backed into the grass, meaning I had backed up too far. Fortunately, I saw that I hadn’t veered too much out of the straight line I was trying to go in, because driving in reverse meant I could see the truck’s tracks right in front of me with the help of the headlights. The car fell onto the grass from back to front. So that meant that the road was now directly in front of me. Since I needed to take a left from my house if I was facing away from it, and I was now facing the opposite direction given that I was looking right at it, that meant that I now had to make a right turn in order to still be going in the right direction.
I took a moment to make sure my logic was right and, once I felt confident, I turned the truck right and then tried to feel for where the road was based on how well the truck was able to move. Eventually I was able to drive relatively smoothly, so I took that to mean that I was back on the road. I tried to angle myself properly so that I wouldn’t wind up veering off the road again. Now and then I would wind up driving myself off the road. But since I was only going like 5 miles an hour, I was able to catch myself before the car wound up falling into any ditches or something.
Since the road was entirely empty, I eventually made the decision to just drive in the middle of the road. Or at least, wherever I thought the middle of the road was. That way, I’d limit the likelihood of driving myself off the right edge.
After about 20 or 30 minutes of driving painfully slowly, I finally saw the sign for my first turn. Since all the turns I was making were fairly sharp ones, they were basically all 90 degrees, there were road signs that I could use to gauge when I should turn without needing to see the road itself. So I still knew when to do it, even though I couldn’t see the road under all the snow and I couldn't use GPS since my phone had to stay on the charger at all costs.
But the snow still made those sharp turns very difficult to make. So I had to start all my turns pretty far ahead of where they actually would’ve been in the road. Naturally, I wound up driving off the road when making literally all of them. But I was always able to work out where the road was supposed to be soon enough. I guess since people are more likely to veer off the road when making turns as opposed to when they’re driving straight, there didn’t seem to be any ditches around all those sharp turns, thankfully enough.
After I made that first turn, I checked my watch. It was now a quarter after 1. I still had 50 minutes to go. I wasn’t making great time, but I had still made it about a third of the way in only about 25 minutes. If I kept up the pace, I’d be there after just under an hour of driving. Which would put me there a little bit after 2 AM. So, pretty much exactly at 2:05, the time we agreed on.
I kept on driving incredibly slowly for what felt like forever. Finally I had made my last turn, and after a bit, I could see lights from the houses off the side of the road in the distance. I figured that this must be the neighborhood Anastasia lived in. If you could even call it a neighborhood. The houses were so hugely spaced out that it hardly even made sense to say you had neighbors. But then, she really did live out in the middle of nowhere.
Every time I passed by a house, I got out of the car and looked for an address with my flashlight. This slowed me down, but it still ensured that I would be headed for the right house. I kept the slip of paper with her address on it since I knew that, without that sheet, I’d absolutely forget which address was hers. I was actually pretty pleased with myself for having thought ahead like that. I usually didn’t. I guess I still usually don’t, if I’m being honest.
I was worried that this whole procedure of getting out of the car to scope out for an address every time I passed a new house would make me late. But fortunately, Anastasia’s house was the third house I came across on that street. So thankfully, I didn’t wind up having to check that many houses and it only cost me maybe another 5 minutes. When I checked my watch, I found I had actually arrived sooner than I had thought. Even with checking every house I had come across up to that point for the address, it was only 1:50.
I had made it with 15 minutes to spare. That meant I had made that last two thirds of my trip in about the same amount of time that I had spent on my first, meaning I had wound up going twice as fast. I suppose as I had gotten comfortable with driving, I sped up the car a little without even realizing it. Doubling your speed sounds like it should be a huge difference, but when you’re only going from 5 miles per hour to 10, I guess it must be pretty hard to notice.
Since I had so much time left and the weather outside was still hellishly cold, I stayed in the truck with the heater blaring. After a couple of minutes, I noticed an ominous red light glowing out of the side of the house. That seemed off to me since surely that couldn’t have anything to do with Anastasia’s clock. It wasn’t a weeknight and even if it was, it was still well past midnight. I remembered what she had told me about how I was still on Stage One. Maybe the fact that she was on a much later stage had something to do with what I was seeing. The fact that I was still on Stage One did, after all, seem like it had something to do with the fact that I was only threatened by the clock on weeknights.
My curiosity had gotten the better of me, and so I braved the cold and snow to go check out what was happening. There was a window on the side of the house. The curtains were left open so with the red light blaring from it, I could see inside fairly easily. Especially since the house was only one story, so it wasn’t like the window was too high up off the ground for me to see through, either.
My fears had been confirmed. Upon looking into the room, I could see exactly where the red light was emanating from: the clock on the nightstand. The face inside was as clear as ever. Every feature slowly growing, approaching the glass in front of the clock’s face. But it wasn’t looking at me. It was very clearly directing its vile and hateful gaze at the person under the covers.
The person had her head covered underneath the blanket, so I couldn’t directly tell who it was. But I figured it had to be Anastasia. For one, there was no way in hell anybody else in her family was playing Sleep Points too. I mean, what are the odds of that? And for another, the room pretty clearly looked like it belonged to a teenage girl about Anastasia’s age. Everything looked like it was pink and had all kinds of frills to it. I even noticed some boyband poster on the other end of the room. If this wasn’t the most stereotypical teenage girl’s room, I had no fucking clue what was.
Finally, 2 o’clock had come. I could see why she had told me 2:05. I had never seen the monster from the clock break out. I had always had my head under the covers whenever it happened. But since this was Anastasia’s clock and not mine and since the face in the clock was staring her down and not me, and since I had entire wall separating me from the thing, I guess I somehow managed to muster up the courage to watch the monster in action.
Suddenly, the hands and numbers of the clock’s face began to almost melt into the monster’s face. It had broken out of the sheet of glass holding it back. But that seemed to be the only thing that was broken. The rest of the actual clock remained pretty intact as the unspeakable thing from within started to slither out of the clock and onto the floor. Since the hands and numbers were still on its face, it kinda looked like they had been imprinted on it like some kind of tattoo artwork. It very quickly expanded in size and let out this unholy screech that I could hear very loudly even from behind the window. But Anastasia was still sleeping very peacefully. Totally motionless like nothing at all was going on.
It prowled around her bed, looking for the slightest sign of motion. It looked almost skeptically at her. As if it could tell whether she was really sleeping or not. And God only knows what would’ve happened to her if she wasn’t. Eventually the monster seemed satisfied with what he saw and shrunk himself down to his original size. He slid back into the clock and as he did so, there was one last glow of red light. The glass had been restored. It was now 2:01.

2023.06.10 05:44 Castilla_Leon I'm renting a shop :D
After grinding for 5 months I can finally rent a shop, not to open it to the public, but to put all my personal studio there, it's 80m² (860 SF) with soundproof walls and ceiling, so I can work even if it's 4 am and scream as much as I want.
And it's only a street away from my home, so it's a 1-2 minute walk from my house to the shop, I'm so happy everything is working out after dropping out, just wanted to share that :)

2023.06.10 05:44 Sorrelfur Cat tried climbing wall and scratched it all up
So this is a new issue, my almost 1 year old cat Millie has always been one to try and cstch bugs and stuff but idk what this was. There's this patch of wall before the staircase and we were just watching TV and suddenly I heard a thunk looked over and saw her just hanging off of this small patch of wall. I yelled at her because I didn't want her doing that and she kind of like slid down and on the way down she must have scratched it cuz there's scratches all over this patch of wall which I don't know how to fix because she scratched the drywall. And I don't know what to do about this habit because I live with my mother and my cats are really only tolerated as long as they don't cause any damage and this is damaged damage. So I don't know what to do I trim her claws weekly, have a cat tree, a and various scratching posts. It wasn't cause she wanted to scratch but idk what it was, there's no window there nothing to be curious about. But I need to make sure it doesn't happen again otherwise I'm worried for my cats being able to stay here. I have no idea how to fix the drywall.

2023.06.10 05:42 v-a-g HDR seemingly not working unless it’s dolby vision? Ideas? I’m so lost.
I have a 4k hdr tv but for some reason almost no titles are showing up as hdr in plex. I have an apple tv 4k 2022. A tcl r646. Direct play works fine. Plex pass i have. Wired 1gb up/down connection. HDR tone mapping on. I turn off match dynamic range and forced hdr and it still doesn’t work (even though it shows hdr in the corner of the tv). It seems to work for a fraction of a second and then not work anymore. I’m stumped. Dolby vision stuff seems to work fine. What can i check to ensure that it works? Thanks!
