Biaheza's Full Dropshipping Course
Exactly how I started a multi-million dollar business from my bedroom.
In this course I don’t talk about regurgitated strategies that should work “in theory” and “mindset” like most. Instead we go through step by step and build a real live dropshipping store that does over one thousand dollars it’s first full day of being live (profitable right from the get go). I explain everything along the way and talk about how I scale much further from there!
FEATURES OF THE COURSE The main focus of this course is to help beginners build a store on Shopify and market it through Tik Tok ads. As Facebook ads got more strict, expensive and less effective, a lot of dropshippers have silently moved over to Tik Tok.
Due to the pandemic, people are more used to longer shipping times than ever. Combined with how effective and profitable Tik Tok ads currently are, I truthfully don’t think there has been a better time to get into dropshipping. This is the most revealing piece of content I have ever put out, as I even reveal some of my personal best selling products
My process for starting these stores is fairly similar every time, meaning you can use these exact steps to start your own The style of website you will learn to build in this program is simple to create yet has lead to world class level conversion rates.

2023.04.01 10:29 notpropaganda73 How to account for Splitwise

Hey guys! I'm brand new to YNAB and I love it so far, I've been working off an excel spreadsheet as a budget for so many years but I've always been so so bad at assigning my actual spend to my different categories, so my budgets were always just a loose guide of "hey I should have thousands in savings if I follow this" but in reality living month to month - so I'm hoping that using YNAB will change the spending behaviour a bit and help me reach my goals!
Just looking for some advice - my partner and I use Splitwise to divide up household things, mostly groceries now but the occasional takeaway or night out if we've decided to split it rather than one of us treating the other. A big purchase will usually get put on there too (we just moved to an unfurnished rented house in January so we used it for splitting up the furniture purchases for example). The long term goal will be to get her using YNAB but it was hard enough to get her to start using Splitwise, so I want to ease her into this budgeting fun :-) I was just wondering if anyone has used Splitwise or apps like it (you input the expenses and assign a percentage to each person in your group), and how best to account for it in YNAB?
I've kept things simple so far so only included my main two current accounts (bills and general spending), my spending Credit Card and one easy access saver building towards a holiday this summer. I was thinking of adding Splitwise as an "account" - at the minute my partner owes me approx £50 in there, and I could assign it to my Groceries budget... I'm just wondering how YNAB would treat it if I then owed my partner, would I get the big red "FIX THIS" message? Has anyone used something like this in tandem with YNAB before? Or am I best just keeping it separate for now rather than overcomplicating things?
Thanks everyone!

2023.04.01 10:27 THE3NAT My take on everything from a semi-casual standpoint.

I don't mean for this post to be negative, I don't think that gets anyone anywhere. I just want to be another data point for people to look at.
Bit of background on me so everyone can see where I'm coming from here. I'm a player who plays mostly with friends but I also enjoy climbing the ladder to test my decks, I've gotten to plat in the past I'm not sure if thats good or bad. The part I love about this game is deck building - I like to make strong decks to beat my friends with, I don't tend to copy decks since for me half the fun is building and refining my personal creations. I also don't really give a shit about the meta but I do loosely follow what's going on for deck inspiration.
My favorite champions to use are somewhat order: Azir, Viktor, Kayle, Kai'sa, Evelynn, Bard, Irellia. I have many decks using many of these champs in many coronations so take that for what you will.
In regards to rotation I think it's a good thing which seem to be a hot take right now, I also think however that it's been implemented in the worst way possible. To me it seems like cards were rotated without rhym or reason for the most part, I understand some things like Irellia to stop the Azir thing and such like that, but other cards seem so random.
A rotation is a very important thing to have in any card game like this. At some point there are too many cards to keep track of and balance around. If the game was to continue to get card updates it needed to eventually have a rotation. The implementation however is a little wacky. Currently my understanding is that once a card is rotated out it just isn't coming back ever? That seems bad, if AziIrellia is a problem deck then shouldn't those two champs be rotated off in an alternating fashion? It's also my opinion that full sets should be rotated off and on as a whole generally, I think that makes it easier to put decks together.
Touching on everything else briefly. I think ranked eternal lockout is fine, nobody would be willing to even try standard otherwise and hey maybe you'll like it! Current meta is whatever OMG new cards unbalanced this never happens, y'all a bunch of drama queens. Op things will get nerfed, yea some things like Samira themed spells (all out I think it's called?) are OP but it'll get tuned and quantitative testing is very hard while developing, this goes doublely so since it's a smaller team.
Also aside from everything I'd love to see a ban feature added so I can maybe ban a specific champ and then not have to play against it. IDK could be cool, I haven't thought this out much.
TL;DR: I'm a somewhat casual player that thinks totation is good in concept just implemented badly. Sorry if this is all a bit rambly.

2023.04.01 10:15 jiquvox Complete guide to Kathy Rain's lore/plot secrets SPOILERS

Table of content
Foreword
Part 1 Sources
Part 2 Theory about the supernatural plot
Part 3 Chronology of the events
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FOREWORD

Having played the game in its original version last week I felt at the same time charmed by the gameplay/mood and kinda puzzled/frustrated by the story. I will add my review in a different post.
Looking around to find an explanation, I didnt find anything really consistent. In fact I found other people sharing the same frustration toward the elusive plot.
But I did find out there was a director's cut version and ended up watching long parts of a video walkthrough of the DC version. Even the game plot still remains fairly elusive , It turned out to be a lot more complete/rounded up.
Scrubbing through key moments and comparing both versions, I ended up figuring out a narrative that would make sense of the plot. So to perfectly clear, this is a spoiler full guide for people who ended up frustrated by the mysteries of the game. I DISADVISE READING IF YOU HAVENT PLAYED THE GAME.
I will refer to the original game as OG and the Director's cut as DC. When I dont mention anything it normally means that the quote stays the same in both version. A few words about DC itself from the author itself
https://adventuregamers.com/forums/viewthread/15566/P90
From the author Krusbert in 2021
All the story changes I made to the game was to improve overall plot cohesion, fix pacing problems, tie up loose ends in the narrative and to establish a stronger background lore for more stories with Kathy
Hopefully that doesn’t feel like too much of a cop out, but trust that each cut was made deliberately and after careful consideration.”
https://www.prankster101.com/articles/interview-with-joel-staaf-hasto-of-kathy-rain/
The original plan was to make a series of games with Kathy right off the bat, thus the tagline and unresolved questions at the end.
I wont get in all changes of the DC but here are a few :
-lily and the grey double of the crimson one seem to disappear
(And correspondingly no mention of queen and knight anymore. And king) . Probably to tighten the story around existing character
the grey man in dream day 3 is completely substituted by the crimson man , performing the exact same role with the boy and the painting
-The crimson man has more importance
-And the crimson eye appear on screen in the abyss
overall DC version simplifies/eliminate obscure part , stresses some part/adds more specific details to convey its secret plot in much more accessible way
but in some part, the writer seems to have partly changed the mystic plot
regarding Lily , Father Isaac answers on day 4 once he's jailed
while she's both described as "a conundrum" in both OG and DC, her ultimate fate dramatically differs : in OG : in death ascended united with the holy conduit (and she materializes indeed as the three lights on day 5 in the below dimension)
in DC : Alas there is no hiding from god. Her soul knows only fire and brimstone now. (and she doesnt appear at all in the DC version )

PART 1 SOURCES OF INFORMATION ABOUT THE SUPERNATURAL PLOT

You have 6 sources of mystic information
but some might not be reliable or only partly reliable
*Jimmy Cochran (on tape and on day 4) . They are several characteristics that make him the prime authority about the plot.
-he considers himself the sharpest tool in the box. It's a frequent trope in fiction to reverse the obvious : King Lear sees the duplicity of his daughters once he becomes blind. Mad men are frequently the sane character in fiction.
-he shows by far the largest awareness of what’s going on in the game, commenting on almost every aspect of the plot.
-He is also the most cryptic to the point Kathy express her frustration
-He calls out other witness - he calls the church of holy trinity “misguided faithful”
-He has a very peculiar condition : his mind was split in two.
*Father bill notes/tape :
Partly unreliable base on Jimmy Cochran opinion. His tape is considerably expanded in DC .
*Priest Isaac you met him on day 1,3 but he becomes especially open once he’s arrested on day 4
Very unreliable based on four elements
-Jimmy : the church of the holy trinity are “misguided”
- even father Bill disapproves of his actions (made very clear in DC version)
-Isaac can’t see the Crimson man once his father dies.
Isaac commits suicide upon hearing the tape of his father disapproval
-his vision of Lily's fate change dramatically between OG and DC version.
His opinion isnt' meaningless but it's arguable at best, tangential at worst.
However both Jimmy and Priest Isaac call Lily a chronicler so he might be partly right
*The Crimson man (and indirectly his Grey double in dreams of day 2 and 3 in OG version)
*Lily who appears only in OG Version on Day 5 in the Abyss toward the end
* Joseph Rain at the end in both OG and DC version

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PART 2 THEORY ABOUT THE SUPERNATURAL PLOT/LORE

The supernatural plot can be summarized in 3 key ideas.
1-The lights/below dimension are real but not divine, simply dangerous natural phenomenon
The below/source/cradle of darkness/ holy of the holies (isaac) is essentially a distorted mirror dimension
2- the below distorts desires and fears
2-1 Father Bill and his son Isaac are both tormented person who projected their own religious desires/fears inside the below and created the Crimson one/ the Old god
2-2 the Crimson one is Isaac
2-3 the Old god is Father Bill
2-4 a doctrine of salvation with different application : although they both want to save sinners, Father bill and Isaac vision of the mending is significantly different.
3- the below also distorts time .
3-1In the real world the time is in a loop creating possible time paradox
3-2 Below the time flows differently
3-3 people who have a connection with the below can acquire foretelling ability
3-4 Lily

SECTION 1-the lights, the below dimension and the red flowers are real dangerous phenomenon.

1.1 the lights are not hallucination, they are real
proof : because of the photo taken by Jimmy Cochran and found in Joseph Rain briefcase on day 1 and developed on day 2)
-But they are not divine, they are a dangerous natural phenomenon
proof
Jimmy : the lights are neither divine nor unholy. They are but a distortion of ourselves
Joseph in unit tape on day 4 in DC version expands considerably on their nature :
I have come to believe that the glowing lights are burst of energy, similar to the static discharge that cause lightning . However instead of a positive and a negative electric charge , the colliding forces have a dimensional nature. Assuming this hypothesis is correct, the lights would only appear at the edge of the zone.
Their nature is much more arguable in OG but in DC they first and foremost are a sign you ‘re entering the zone of the threshold : the dark pit where your mind can enter another dimension. The source/below (what the church call the holy of holies).
Being a place of collision between the dimensions touching the lights can have disastrous consequences depending on the invidual.
1.2 The red flowers
They allow to properly enter the below dimension.
By extension they are the real link to this alternate dimension. That’s why Kathy burns them at the end in order to cut off the source.
Joseph DC version on day 5 : I've come to understand the red flowers anchor this realm to the real world
1.3 The below/source/cradle of obscurity/ the holy of holies
it is a essentially a distorted mirror of our own dimension in 2 way
Joseph in DC version on day 5 : I can only give you my pointless theories which range from everything between divine punishment and a mindless force of nature

Section 2- The below distorts fear and desire

intro - the fundamentally twisted nature of the below
Jimmy (talking about the lights) they are but twisted reflection of us. Everything we long for and desire
Joseph DC version : it takes each of your fears , every source of guilt and turns them against us
in the other hand it's mostly useless on unconflicted, pure individual like happy christian Eileen
In DC version when Kathy opens her aborted child coffin, the Crimson man makes a difference between people : his kind like broken people like her who can be mended/who embrace them -Kathy is conflicted with his anger toward her father who abandoned her, her guilt toward her mother for putting her in an asylum , her guilt toward the kid she aborted as a teenager. Joseph is a really good person but he felt in great pain for losing Kathy which makes him a good candidate for the mending too.
Happy go lucky people like Kathy's friend Eileen are simply “greedy little piglets that seem to get away " Another example is Nathan, the brother of Lily : he is introduced as simple minded, with a childish mind , void of internal conflict and as a result the lights don’t affect him.
The below needs tormented people to work
Speaking of tormented people …
2-1-Father Bill and his son Isaac are tormented person whose own religious desires/fears are distorted inside the below/source/cradle creating the Crimson man/ the Old god and made this place what we see in the game
Again Jimmy points out how the church of the holy trinity is wrong, calling them "misguided faithful" and stating "the lights are neither divine nor unholy"
But let's wind black the clock to the genesis of the Church in spring 71
Bill had 2 sons : Joshua and Isaac - those are very religious name . You don't name give those kind of name twice by accident.
The Price family mausoleum shows that Joshua was born in 61 and Isaac in 59. So it seems to strongly imply that BEFORE Bill even became a pastor, back when was still a traveling salesman, he had already a very religious mind.
-Also both Father Bill and his son Isaac are shown to be very conflicted individual
concerning Father Bill and the creation of the church , his own son Isaac expressedly established he was a conflicted individual at the time of the incident
this day was different. My father held dark thoughts in his mind. He was angry, thinking of evil deeds, even considering swerving off the road into a rock and ending it all. Then suddenly, divine internation! three bright lights appeared.
not only but upon hearing Father Bill tape on day 4 ) in DC version (where it becomes much more expressive than OG) , Kathy specificially exclaims "Jeez, Father Bills was a nutty! "
Isaac shows even stronger inner conflict - not only commits a desperate suicide after hearing his father disapproval , he was already a conflicted individual in his youth oh yes I was a teenager back then, full of rebellion, every fiber of my being wanting to distance myself from my father
2-2 the crimson man is Isaac reborn after suicide
It might seem surprising because Isaac exists at the same time as Isaac and even condemns the Crimson one. Now let’s put aside the mechanics of how it works for a moment there are 6 proofs of the identity of the Crimson one
*2-2-1 Jimmy “Let's go see the man you reunited with his family” on day 4
Jimmy speaks in riddles when interrogated by Kathy on day 4. But when it comes to the Crimson man Jimmy describes him in a very odd and specific way “Let's go see the man you reunited with his family”.
-Isaac family are all dead based on the Price familial mauselum . There are 7 graves. Isaac grave is the only one without a death date.
-The tv in jail /father billy says “Welcome home son” when Priest Isaac kills himself
- Jimmy can see the future /all timeline , so he can see Kathy giving Isaac the information leading to his suicide which “reunite him with his family” since they’re all dead
* 2-2-2 the portrait of father bill crying blood on day 4
when Kathy touches the lights on day 4: she has a vision of the Crimson man issuing mockery statement about victims that make Father bill portrait cry blood
In DC version the content of the tape left by father Bill in the safe behind the portrait is made much more explicit than in OG
my visions concerning my sons are troubling ... I've watched them become corrupted with pride, turning their backs on the very foundations of our faith ... I've seen great sins committed : Act of violence and intimidation ,. Outsiders brought to hallowed ground with neither reverence nor ritualthere are dark dreams indeed. I pray that they never come to pass, lest my soul shall weep tears of blood
this is Father Bill vision about Isaac come to pass.
*2-2-3 -Jimmy in OG version on day 4 says the Crimson man is a great ally of Joseph
At face value it seems very confusing considering Joseph very much wants to close the source.
It makes a lot more sense when you consider Isaac had huge respect for Joseph. here's what Isaac says of Joseph on day 3
He and my father did charity work together, Joseph was around a lot when I was young. Joseph was the person who convinced me to become a priest Jospeh made me realize my sinful pride and showed me how I should follow my heart , regardless of what others might think. And for that I am eternally grateful.
2-2-4 : The crimson one is repeatedly referred as having no name/ lost his name.
-The crimson man wheen he meets Kathy on day 3 says his name has been taken from him
that's because the Crimson man exist at the same time as Isaac (as for the why we're going to talk about time in Kathy Rain) : so he cannot call himself Isaac anymore.
specifically in DC it's added on the tape of Father Bill on day 4 the Crimson one is described in the following way
only he is poised to understand the struggle of those who are lost : the broken and guilt ridden .To have no name is to have a shattered spirit.
Isaac feels extremely guilty over his actions to the point he committed suicide and his spirit is very much shattered.
*2-2-5 he looks vaguely like an hairless version of Isaac with black eyes

2-3 As for the Old God it is arguably Father Bill himself.
in DC version there is the appearance of a great red eye
the Crimson one talks with a great red eye on tv on day 2 , the great red eye appears again on tv on day 5
And Isaac describes Father bill trial in the following way :
under the watchful gaze of his GREAT EYE, God tested father's faith in countless ways. Fueled by conviction and a sense of purpose, Father persevered.
in OG and DC it is pointed out that Father Bill ascended to unite with God. That is the ultimate god of the mending.
in OG Father bill notes have specifically notes with initial in front of the description of people who ascended : it is marked "FB ?" in blue (arguable who wrote that. The only logical choice would be Kathy but it's still kinda shaky. Those notes disappear in OG)
Also the TV in the prison seem to be Father Bill speaking since he says "welcome home son" when Isaac commits suicide.
which echoes the fact the great eye is on the tv in the below
2-4 the agenda is nothing but a twisted version of christian theology and rites
2-4-1 the Mending, a hardcore twist on Christian idea of salvation
to Kathy question once Isaac is in jail what is your church really about Isaac ? what are your trying to accomplish Isaac answers in a surprisingly honest and self-aware way "the same as any other church. All we want is the salvation of mankind"
The "Mending" is at the core of the dogma of the church of holy trinity and it's about salvageing the sinners. As shown by the notes of Father Bill you recover in a safe on day 4
it reflects Father Bill and Isaac desire to save people although they seem differently motivated. Father Bill might truly believe this/act out compassion and reflects his own desire of salvation.In the other hand, Isaac faith seem far less benevolent and shows a lot of pride/moral superiority : You can try child. I have God on my side. Regarding the God he worships, he makes very clear it's a different kind of God , Old might as well mean original here : Of course not. I am talking about the Old God, slumbering in the darkness beyond and it's a way once again to give Isaac some superiority/ pride because HE knows the “real” god.
Incidentally the "Old God" name is also interesting - because while Catholic church insist that there is only one God, an idea that frequently circulates about the Christian God is that the Ancien and New testament are two different gods. The Ancient testament God is associated with cataclysms and ominous warnings and punishment while Jesus frequently preaches God Love in the New Testament . Kathy rain kinda rides on that idea of a terrible mysterious god /ancient testament like so the Old God is fitting.
2-4-2 a controversial doctrine that involves pain
Like most zealot their faith can turn kinda inhumane and cruel though. In theory it is well meaning. They want people to be happy osave them. But it’s still based on the predicate most people are sick/sinner. Isaac is the worst.
The Crimson one refers to it as “taking one's medicine”
about Lily : He wanted her to take her medicine (Nathan recollection about Lily and the crimson one)
About Kathy before she gets in the source : All we want is for you to take you medicine Kathy. For you to grow and be happy.
But the mending and generally the connection with the below can make people tremendously suffer (lily, jimmy) and sometimes outright break mentally some people-turn them catatonic (joseph, eileen and countless unnamed other victim according to Isaac himself) :
Regarding the possible failure of the mending, the Crimson man is slightly apologetic about it: “What one wants and what one is able to do are different “ The crimson one doesn’t force people the way Isaac does even if he's not entirely above manipulation.
In the other hand, Isaac is so focused on his divine mission that he’s straight up indifferent to the people. It's not only collateral damage (A necessary evil. I look at the bigger picture, the greater good.) When pushed, Isaac clearly shows his colors, if it fails it's very much the fault of the sinner. All I did was bring them face to face with God. If they chose to reject him , they were beyond redemption.
That‘s the pride Father Bill was warning against. Isaac is extremely self-righteous and considers he knows better and can do no wrong. Which is pretty rich because Isaac is aping his father but without understanding much about his doctrine and arguably being outright ignorant about some of its aspects.
2-4-3 Isaac shortcomings : ignorance, lack of empathy and pride
It is specifically suggested that Isaac is far less convincing than his father (besides his lack of charisma, his lack of empathy sure didn't help).
-the church flourished and continued to grow all the way up until his suddent death in 1983.That's when I stepped in to take leadership of the Church
-I take it that the church started declining after the death of Father Bill ?
-yes naturallly so, with such an magnetic personality he was irreplaceable
Isaac quickly tries to defend the church is still thriving but Kathy points out two signs that things are relatively dire for the church now :
about the church : Looks kinda empty to me
about her first meeting with Isaac at the cemetary : What's up with you handing out pamphlets at funerals then ? trying to reel them in when they're weak ?
And that’s why the Crimson one Disappears as soon as Isaac takes over. See Isaac testimony once he’s arrested and how he rejects the notion of Kathy even meeting the Crimson one.
Preposterous. No one has seen that apostate since Father’s death.
The Crimson One disappears because Isaac is simply unable to Bring willingly subject to the faith , in such a way the Crimson one refuses to have anything to do with this. The Crimson one wants willing subject.
Remember that the Crimson one doesn’t oppose Kathy leaving before the stairs of judgment /right at the threshold of the mending :
This is crazy, I could just walk away , just ride on my bike and drive. Forget I was ever here.
Nothing is stopping you.
She has to do it on her own free will .
In DC version Father Bill tape says so explicitedly : the mending is a gift and a duty. But it must begin in the heart of a true believer. Someone who yearns for change and possesses the dedication and perseverance to achieve it.
In spite of trying to look all-knowing, it’s very arguable whether Isaac even knows where is the Treshold pit to the below. :
that’s probably why he steals Lily painting. Since the Crimson one disappeared he wanted to bring the sinners to the treshold himself . But he doesn't know where the treshold is. He figures that since Lily received divine knowledge from God, her painting might give clues about where to find the treshold . He's not entirely wrong since Lily painting clearly helped Joseph Rain to find the Source. He's just wrong about those being some sort of secret he needs to unlock by defacing the paintings.
His storage unit makes his frustration clear as he not only deface all her painting to find a secret Clue but writes on the wall "where is it ? " (the stealing must at least happen after 1981 since Joseph saw all of them ) the fact he disfigures them looking for a secret truth also fit his pride/superiority complex : there has to be a secret truth - one he’s the only fit to perceive.
-Remember he brings Eileen to his father mausoleum. And he doesnt need to know where the treshshold is to find red flowers : it is shown the red flower grows also at the edge of the forest
-Although he says he brought sinners to the stair of judgment, considering his gigantic pride he might simply be lying rather than admit he doesn’t even know something as central to his faith . In fact he considers even “preposterous “ the very idea of Kathy meeting the Crimson one when HE has been actively looking for him for years. The entire worldview of Isaac is based on the idea is a faithful servant of the Old God and he has superior knowledge and needs to guide the lost souls/ teach them the secret truth.
As for why the Crimson one and Isaac MO differs in spite of being originally the same person : remember that Isaac is very distraught by hearing his father stern disapproval and wonder outloud if has strayed from the faith, eventually committing suicide soon afterward. The Crimson one is his reborn version whose ways are corrected to fit his father gentler faith.
I will atone for my sins
But how is it even possible for the Crimson one and Isaac being in the first place ? . That brings us to the time aspect of Kathy Rain.

Section 3-time loop and foretelling ability

3-1 time loop in the real world
It’s Kinda hard to fully understand how time works in Kathy Rain world but the game seems to strongly suggest the real world is going through a time loop
-Jimmy seems to say that Kathy and him had this conversation several times in spite of her not remembering it And she is “ doing so much better than the last time
-in the director’s cut : “what came before must come again “ on Kathy father postcard in the hole he fell into in the abyss on day 5
3-2 time stand still in the below
And the mirror dimension seem to also distort time . Time pretty much seems to stand still in in the below.
Joseph talking about the time he went catatonic says : “it hasn’t been so long from my point of view”. It clearly implies that time doesn’t flow the same way in the abyss as in real world
While the real world runs in loops , the below arguably stand still or very slow. It might explain the time paradox of having both Isaac and the Crimson one : Isaac commits suicide in one time loop and is reborn as the Crimson one ( that's the entire nature of time paradoxes )
3-3 foretelling
So if people create a connection with the below/the source they can see the future through the below but the toll on the mind is huge.
Jimmy Says he’s “below watching reruns
Jimmy states Lily can see “the loops, the infinite possibilities
-Jimmy also saw Kathy “over a great pit throwing the last memento of [her father] into the empty blackness below” ( which echoes her fight with her dad in the abyss on day 5)
There are even subtler hints like the message “inkier hearth / hopes in jar nemesis rule ” (which are anagrams for katherine rain, joseph rain, eileen summers ) found by Kathy on the fridge in the abyss in day 5 which is announced by the tv/father bill when she gets out of jail in day 4
This foretelling stuff brings us to Lily.
3-4 Lily
as for Lily : I’d say this part of the plot is really messy. What she can exactly do, what was the church plan for her, what is her ultimate fate.
At some level the writer kinda acknowledge that because in both version she is described in game as a “conundrum” and there seem to be a few contradictions.
No only but most importantly that there is clearly some evolution between OG and DC . See Isaac testimony about the fate post-death of Lily - it dramatically changes between OG and DC :
in OG : in death [she ]ascended , united with the holy conduit (the holy conduit is the religious name given to the lights by Isaac. And Lily materializes indeed as the three lights on day 5 in the below dimension in the OG version )
in DC : Alas there is no hiding from god. Her soul knows only fire and brimstone now. (and she doesnt appear at all in the DC version )
But it’s possible to get some general idea about Lily place in the plot, regardless of the inconsistencies
Lily connection with the below seems particularly strong : she saw the loops, the infinite possibilities
As for why her connection is so strong , it’s easy to miss, but, if you show the botanical note about the red flower to Sue , Lily's mother and asks her if she recognizes it she answers
“Sure smoked it a few times back in the day”
Similar to pot but much stronger and more unpredictable Never touched the stuff AFTER I got pregnant with Lily.”
it seems to hint that Sue might have smoked the red flower at the very start of her pregnancy . Doing so affected Lily in her womb and might have made created a latent connection with the below which fully activated once she found the lights . Keep in mind that the red flower is the key connection between the below and real world. (To some extent think Alia in Dune and how Jessica drunk the water of life while pregnant with her , exposing her unborn child to ancestral memories … which eventually drove her mad.)
As for her role, the Church/below clearly seems to see her Lily a tool to propagate their doctrine over the world :
in OG she’s literally described as “prophet” by Isaac on day4 ( in OG she even later merge with the lights ). She is also described as a “chronicler” by both Jimmy and Isaac But DC makes clearer the plans of the Church/below for her : Not only does Isaac blames her for rejecting the gift of prophecy of God.
But In DC day 3 the Crimson man says
Listen to the drawn girl (also OG)
She’s the one who slipped.
While she may be free in death , her cold wet hands still trap many in painful ignorance.
Lily was meant to be the one to really propagate the message and convert people to the religion.
Lily turns very unhappy once she found the lights and had visions.
In OG Isaac says she was “part prophet, part mender” in life. Arguably the reason of her suffering and unhappiness was the very visions she received. Consider also that Jimmy vision are not nearly as strong as Lily - he can only perceives some words ,. And consider that as a grown man it was already too Much and he was eventually interned
Lilly is specifically urged by the Crimson Man to “take her medicine” (which means undergoing the mending based on Crimson comment to Kathy) and “fights” with him according to Nathan .
Whether it was because she was unhappy and the Crimson one is naturally attracted to unhappy people or because the mending would have made her a better prophet/completed her connection is arguable . At any rate she resisted : most likely because she had already enough disturbing visions and the mending seemed to involve even more emotional pain.
With those core ideas setup, the chronology of events now makes some sense.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PART 3 CHRONOLOGY OF THE EVENTS

Spring 1971 William Price find the lights and becomes Father Bill
William Price then a travelling salesman, stumbles upon the lights ( Parowa Peak in DC, North of the lake in OG) . A tormented man and with a religious mindset (as shown by how he named his boys Isaac and Joshua ) he sees divine intervention in the apparition of the lights and creates the church of holy trinity.
He becomes Father Bill.
At some point between 1971 and his death in 1983 he undergoes the mending and his fears and desires reshapes the below to fit his religious mindset. Looking for his own personal salvation he imprints that narrative on the below .( The exact date of Father Bill mending and ascension isn’t clear : OG seems to hint it happened late in life as Isaac reject responsibility for Joseph accident arguing that “his father and him were not enlightened at the time” , DC seems on the contrary to hint it happened early as the lights led Father Bill to the holy of holy)
-1974 Lily Myers finds the light and the visions trouble her until she commits suicide
aged 15 and her brother Nathan finds the lights
the event happen on the lake in DC version, in a forest on OG version.
Although Lily used to draw since she was 10, her art change dramatically at this moment . She earns some foretelling ability in the process. Still she’s very disturbed and unhappy about the visions she receive as witnessed by her mother. The Crimson man urges her to undergo the mending which she most likely reject. She become more and more depressed /her painting become darker and darker.
On 14/07/1975 She ultimately commits suicide by proxy, forcing her brother Nathan to drown her.

around 1981 Jimmy Cochran finds the lights and his mind split
-Jimmy Cochran somehow stumbles upon the lights in the forest . irresistibly drawn to them, he can’t help touching them and his mind is split in two : one part goes below, one part stays upside in his body. He confides to Joseph, a childhood friend and fellow pilot, about the lights. The latter then decides to find the source and cut it off to save Jimmy
(arguably Joseph also might have bought into the whole “mending” stuff of the church and looking for emotional healing - he apparently respects Father Bill and he is in great emotional pain at this point in his life - he’s missing Kathy and trying hard to get her back as shown by his appeal for custody paperwork dated 1981/07/15. ) .
1981 Joseph Rain
The game clearly state that Joseph is looking for the source .
Not only that but it strongly hint , especially in DC version, that to end he’s looking for the lights and finds one of the lights through Lily painting :
In both version, Lily’s mother specifically says Joseph asked "if Lily had painted something odd or strange" he looked at her paintings and clearly saw something immediately then he wrote something down on a piece of paper, thanked me and left .
Not only that, his accident happened soon after Now that I think about it, that whole ordeal happened to him not long after he came here A week maybe at the most
(And we know for a fact Lily found the lights. Nathan leads Kathy/us to the lights . DC version specifically shows a drawing by Nathan of Nathan and Lily finding the lights. And one of Joseph tape in DC version state clearly Assuming this hypothesis is correct, the lights would only appear at the edge of the zone. Joseph groundwork is actually the basis for us/Kathy triangulating the treshhold in the DC version by noting the places of apparition of the lights on the map. )
Joseph dedication to finding the source, inner turmoil about Kathy makes him a prime candidate for the mending and the Crimson man even starts visiting his dreams to prepare him.
On 1981/08/16 he eventually finds the threshold, enters the Source , fail the mending and his body goes catatonic for the next 14 years.
The source left untouched, Jimmy grows increasingly erratic. He eventually gets interned around 1982-1983 according to Charles Wade.
1983 Father Bill dies/ Isaac takes over the church
-When Father Bill dies on 21 October 1983 , Isaac takes over and the church flock quickly shrinks
It is specifically suggested that Isaac is far less charismatic than his father.
-the church flourished and continued to grow all the way up until his suddent death in 1983
That's when I stepped in to take leadership of the Church
-I take it that the church started declining after the death of Father Bill ?
-yes naturallly so, with such an magnetic personality he was irreplaceable
Isaac quickly tries to defend the church is still thriving but Kathy points out two signs that things are relatively dire for the church now :
about the church : Looks kinda empty to me
about her first meeting with Isaac at the cemetary : What's up with you handing out pamphlets at funerals then ?

And that’s when the Crimson one Disappears.
(See Isaac testimony once he’s arrested and how he rejects the notion of Kathy even meeting the Crimson one. Preposterous. No one has seen that apostate since Father’s death. )
The reason of his disappearance/Isaac not finding him is simple : Isaac is simply unable to Bring willingly subject to the faith , in such a way the Crimson one refuses to have anything to do with this.
The Crimson one wants willing subject.
In DC version Father Bill tape says so explicitedly : the mending is a gift and a duty. But it must begin in the heart of a true believer. Someone who yearns for change and possesses the dedication and perseverance to achieve it.)


1983-1995 alternative MO to the mending
Strongly believing in the divine mission of the church, Isaac cannot accept that turn of events.
The crimson one abandoned us all and the divine work now rest on my shoulders.
At first Isaac intends to bring to sinners to the threshold himself and becomes a substitute for the Crimson one . That’s why he steals Lily’s painting to find the treshold, hoping to unlock secret knowledge that would put him on the path the the threshold.
Obsessed about it, he will write “where is it ? ” on the wall of the locker unit where he keeps the defaced stolen paining.
Ultimately Isaac ends up creating a new MO : No consent, no preparation by the Crimson one in dreams or otherwise, not trip to the treshold. He will single-handedly forces people to the mending
That’s what Father Bill called : turning their back on the very foundation of our faith .
Isaac full alternative MO is uncertain but seems to mostly involve force-fedding the red flower to his victims in order to bring them to God/trigger the mending then bringing Them to the familial mausoleum to ask for his father help (having a real or imaginary talk with his father OG version while mostly quoting a medley of Bible verses related to purification of the soul in DC version ).

1995 Kathy investigation
Joseph body, catatonic for the past 14 years, finally dies. Kathy comes back home.
Although Joseph accident is not directly related to Isaac actions , Kathy investigation in what happened to her grandfather (which required searching about the source and the church) , eventually uncovers the kidnappings of Isaac.
In the process her friend Eileen is forcefully “mended” by Isaac which leads Kathy to confront Isaac. Hearing his father stern disapproval about his actions, Isaac entire worldview collapses.
His spirit shattered , he eventually commits suicide swearing to "atone for his sins" (which will leads to him in a time loop to being reborn as the nameless Crimson one - Father Bill describing the Crimson one in DC version to have no name is to have a shattered spirit - The reborn Isaac will be now more respectful of freewill.).
A little later, Kathy finds the treshold, breathes the red flowers, descend the stair of judgment , goes through the 3 trials and complete the mending.
Going out she burns the flower cutting off the the source / curing Eileen (and arguably Jimmy).

2023.04.01 10:06 Justin534 What do we do about all the garbage and scams so people can see what crypto really is and we can drive forward some real adoption?

What do we do about all the garbage and scams so people can see what crypto really is and we can drive forward some real adoption?
I wrote this as a reply to another thread but thought it would make a decent top level post.
Surely what holds crypto and public blockchains back right now are near zero barriers to creating garbage or outright scams, right? Until we can do something about that crypto will never see any form of mass adoption - so what do we do? What can we do?
Of the millions or billions websites on the Internet - how many are garbage or scams? Pick any random blog. What percent are going to be garbage or nonsense? In the 90s plenty of people thought it would be absurd for anyone to trust a website on the Internet for shopping. But all it really took was for some companies (ebay, Amazon, etc) to build a good reputation. Then you had services like PayPal being invented so even those merchants that may not have a good reputation yet could still be trusted. How many emails are scams or phishing attempts?

https://preview.redd.it/k6nngtr9f8ra1.jpg?width=290&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=b70bc40932d656f6c1d9e099bb02779c7175b987
My parents were never interested in computers or using the Internet generally. But they did eventually when a website meant increased sales. When logging in to a website for work made more sense than having to call HR and have everything on paper. When email made more sense than faxing. Or when buying online meant you could purchase something cheaper because you didn't have the bricks and mortar overhead. The garbage and scams had not gone anywhere. They were all still there. But the positive benefits of using the internet, at a certain point, began to outweigh the risks.
These blockchains themselves may be trustless but the same cannot be said for what is built on top of them. However, sooner or later, different protocols will gain more respect and trust. We'll see more real world use cases for blockchains, cryptocurrencies, and how they can benefit people.
Imagine what it will mean for a small business when they can create and accept their own currencies. If I create JTokens and accept them for my business then the tokens will accrue the value of the goods and services bought and sold with them. So now not only will I make money from selling my services but I'll also be rewarded for my work as my JTokens increase in value proportional to my goods and services.
Now imagine then I just extend credit to myself. Not like a bank, but like a central bank. I have a certain amount of demand for my tokens because whenever I make a sale my JTokens are bought. So now I can increase the supply of my tokens a bit. Maybe I increase the supply by 5% and allocate it to myself, then I sell them in a LP so I can make a business purchase. Or a personal purchase for that matter.
And what if any person can do the same thing? They go to work and come time for payday your employer purchases the dollar amount of your paycheck in your own tokens and pays them to you? Any person for that matter then could create their own money based on the value of their labors.
I find it hard to imagine people would not want to have the ability to do this, short of just not wanting to learn or understand a new form of personal finance.
Short of something like this that may be pretty far out in the time horizon were already seeing plenty of good use cases that are moving that adoption needle.
Airlines are issuing tickets as NFTs and now if someone wants to sell their ticket or transfer it to someone else it's as simple as a few clicks
https://finance.yahoo.com/amphtml/news/argentinian-airline-issues-every-ticket-205344176.html
They don't even have to know they're using cryptocurrencies or a blockchain.
Going back to applications needing to build trust we already might be close to that point with some protocols like Aave, Compound, and Uniswap. Eventually we'll have financial advisors that will tell people about which protocols are most trustworthy and which ones might be better to avoid. Maybe there will be a DAO that creates a trust rating for protocols that front ends can proudly display on their front ends.
I think it will just be a matter of time before uncollateralized loans will become a thing on DeFi, and we'll have something like crypto native decentralized credit scores and lenders can simply decide what they want to put at risk for lending. The beauty of this, of course, is there's just a protocol and no financial institution in the middle then whatever amount of money would usually go to a financial service company is now just redistributed to borrowers and lenders. Again financial advisors can work with clients, as they always have, to help them understand if they're lending through one of these protocols what to expect in terms of their risk, or what to expect if they're borrowing.
But also also look at protocols like Uniswap. The only reasons why tokenized securities like stocks and bonds aren't being traded are simply legal ones. Despite the regulatory and legal issues surrounding the space at the moment the law always eventually catches up with the technology.
In spite of this it still hasn't stopped companies issuing bonds on blockchains.
https://press.siemens.com/global/en/pressrelease/siemens-issues-first-digital-bond-blockchain
And wouldn't it be nice if you could self custody your stocks and bonds instead of hoping your broker manages things properly and you wont have to rely on SIPC insurance if your broker should ever get itself into hot water. What kinds of savings can be realized for investors in traditional stocks, bonds, futures, and options if there is no exchange, brokers, and half a dozen financial intermediaries in the middle?
In fact stock investors would be able to generate more returns on their investments than simply holding their stocks. Imagine a Balancer pool that has the same pool distribution for stocks as the S&P 500 weightings? People could then deposit their tokenized stocks into the pool, get the same exposure to stocks they would by holding a SP500 index fund, and also earn fees from people swapping one stock for another. Would it really matter to investors that there also happens to be scams and garbage on blockchains?
At the end of the day though we do have to be patient and wait for this space to mature as more and more people decide that using cryptocurrencies and blockchains is beneficial to them. This space isn't there yet. Slowly step by step its heading that direction but it isn't there yet. That being said though it's heading there fast! In only 3 years Ethereum has gone from $250 million in ETH transferred on chain to today an average of about $4 billion in daily transfers. So in, arguably the middle of or end of a bear market, that's still a 16x growth increase in just 3 years. And that's just layer 1. What's the value of daily Eth transfers when you add up Arbitrum, Optimism, and all wrapped versions of it moving across other chains? This same logic can be applied to Bitcoin and other major cryptos too. I think in 2019 layer 1 numbers were the only ones to go by but now they're only a portion of what you need to look at to get the full picture.
So how do we stop the scams and garbage that proliferate on these networks? We do nothing. We wait and be patient. Unless of course you're a developer and want to get started on that crypto ratings DAO? And what do we do to onboard more people and make more adoption happen? Again, we do absolutely nothing and we don't even try to convince anyone that blockchains and cryptocurrencies are great. Of course if you're a developer than you do what you will be doing anyways: creating tokenized and blockchain solutions that will benefit people.
Right now is not the time for the masses to be adopting and using these systems. Because there just isn't anything there for them yet. We're still the geeks and nerds that were using different Internet protocols when it wasn't very practical yet, and the only thing on the Internet that most people could see was porn, scams, and viruses. You could show someone how to setup an email server, configure it, and send each other messages. But that other person would have been correct to scratch their heads and ask, " Why don't we just fax each other? You're the only person I know that uses email."

[Get] Biaheza – Dropshipping Full Course 2023
Biaheza's Full Dropshipping Course
Exactly how I started a multi-million dollar business from my bedroom.
In this course I don’t talk about regurgitated strategies that should work “in theory” and “mindset” like most. Instead we go through step by step and build a real live dropshipping store that does over one thousand dollars it’s first full day of being live (profitable right from the get go). I explain everything along the way and talk about how I scale much further from there!
FEATURES OF THE COURSE The main focus of this course is to help beginners build a store on Shopify and market it through Tik Tok ads. As Facebook ads got more strict, expensive and less effective, a lot of dropshippers have silently moved over to Tik Tok.
Due to the pandemic, people are more used to longer shipping times than ever. Combined with how effective and profitable Tik Tok ads currently are, I truthfully don’t think there has been a better time to get into dropshipping. This is the most revealing piece of content I have ever put out, as I even reveal some of my personal best selling products
My process for starting these stores is fairly similar every time, meaning you can use these exact steps to start your own The style of website you will learn to build in this program is simple to create yet has lead to world class level conversion rates.

2023.04.01 09:56 StevieLynn_x3 I'm looking for my next card

I'm interested in adding another card to my wallet.

Over the past 3 years I have taken control of my accounts again and started paying off Citi, Citi Best Buy, and Discover. These three were closed in 2019 due to a move out of state and job change that didn't pay me enough to survive so I racked up my cards paying for groceries and such. In the past 3 years I've paid off almost $15k and the Citi Best Buy will be paid off this month completely. So I have 2 cards now helping me bring my scores back up, and I don't carry a balance on them.
In June I will be traveling out of state for work and was looking for a no interest card to put those expenses on before I get my reimbursements back. But I don't travel for work. This is a once in a lifetime training opportunity I am taking and would also like to benefit from the points/rewards/no interest/no AF after the trip. I would also like to build my wallet up and get rid of that CreditOne as well.
I'm willing to look into all options for a long term benefit.

2023.04.01 09:54 0rangeVibes Please help my fish is sick

Hello everyone. My fish(african cichlid) is sick and needs help, please someone tell me what is wrong or some recommendations on how to treat them. Please bear with me this will be lengthy.
Last week (the 24th) when I went home I noticed my fish was not its usual self. It was paler than usual, gills somewhat more red, some of its scales in its lower back were pushed out, it seemed like it had a hard time breathing and its stomach was barely sinking/concaving inwards. My parents did not notice a difference especially in the stomach but my sibling agreed it was acting strange. I did a 25% water change and usually it does not care when the siphon enters the water but that day it just kept chasing it and trying to shake against it.
The next day I knew something was wrong because the stomach was more notable, they were staying in the corner of the tank, they were not eating/pooping, and I was told they were not eating much for a few days. I know nothing about fish medicine so I bought a bunch of stuff: API General Cure, Seachem Garlic Guard, Seachem Focus, and Seachem Metroplex.
At this point I was not sure what was wrong because I was reading so many things and there were symptoms that matched everything. Like was it swim bladder disease, a parasite, infection, hole in the head, simply constipated, stressed?? And I am still not sure.
Last Saturday, I gave him the first dose of API general cure and added some aquarium salt. Still would not eat or poop. And the gills were no longer red but he now stayed near the top of the water. Sunday, I can notice more of the belly and usually I keep the flow of the hand on the filter high but I noticed he was kinda weak and being pushed back by the flow (broke my heart), so I turned it down.
Monday I had to go back to school and my sibling was in charge of him, they made sure to give the final dose of the general cure. Garlic guard arrived in the mail and my sibling soaked some pellets in it. Fish only ate 2 (I think this was the last time he ate).
Thursday comes around, gills are kinda pink, has not eaten the pellets with garlic guard or peeled+chopped peas that were added into the tank. Kinda leaning to the side.
Friday (the 31st), it has gotten bad. My mom called me saying she's worried since he's swimming on his side and is staying hidden in its barrel/ house.
Sibling calls me to confirm he's not eating/pooping and when it swims it can kinda do so normally but when it stops it starts to go sideways(basically laying down completely sideways). He's also breathing very fast and just does not look like he's doing well.
I am currently on my way home right now but I don’t know what to do or what is causing it.
I was thinking its constipation caused by overfeeding but then why is he on his side? Bladder disease/issue? But what does that mean? How do I fix it? I saw someone talk about epsom salt but will that not harm him? Should I stop using aquarium salt? I’m trying to give peas for fiber but he won’t even eat at all, and idk if I should keep trying to feed him because he's not pooping. Does the stomach indicate a parasite, bacterial infection, or because he's not eating?? Is there a fish vet I can call or something? I tested my water multiple times and it's all good.
Should I add the MetroPlex+focus+garlic guard? Anything you recommend?
I don’t know what to do. PLEASE help me. I do not care what I have to spend or if I have to skip classes, I just want him to get better, I don’t want to lose my little guy.

[Get] Biaheza – Dropshipping 2023 Full Course Download
Biaheza's Full Dropshipping Course
Exactly how I started a multi-million dollar business from my bedroom.
In this course I don’t talk about regurgitated strategies that should work “in theory” and “mindset” like most. Instead we go through step by step and build a real live dropshipping store that does over one thousand dollars it’s first full day of being live (profitable right from the get go). I explain everything along the way and talk about how I scale much further from there!
FEATURES OF THE COURSE The main focus of this course is to help beginners build a store on Shopify and market it through Tik Tok ads. As Facebook ads got more strict, expensive and less effective, a lot of dropshippers have silently moved over to Tik Tok.
Due to the pandemic, people are more used to longer shipping times than ever. Combined with how effective and profitable Tik Tok ads currently are, I truthfully don’t think there has been a better time to get into dropshipping. This is the most revealing piece of content I have ever put out, as I even reveal some of my personal best selling products
My process for starting these stores is fairly similar every time, meaning you can use these exact steps to start your own The style of website you will learn to build in this program is simple to create yet has lead to world class level conversion rates.

2023.04.01 09:26 sodomy 35 [M4F] Georgetown/Washington DC/Surrounding areas - Dominant Social Chameleon ISO stimuli

An author's note: Please read this post in it's entirety before you message me, I've added a follow up to answer most of the basic questions I've been asked over the last 3 years since I started posting my AD.
All my previous iterations were mostly about what role I could fulfill; and while this mostly still is true, walking amongst the elites the last week has opened my eyes... I'm looking for a complacent trophy to put on full display. Arriving to this city I already had a deep... Passion for power, governance; and just over all domination -- Washington DC fulfills my lust, and thirst for both political power, and monetary gain. Now I want, not need an adequate toy to share this experience with. Before I was playing conservatively; not anymore,
I've allowed my ego to rampant and on auto-pilot; thus far everything is according to design.
I'm as amoral as they come; I will eviscerate my way to the top of the governmental, and corporate ladder(s). I'm a retired hacker that has realized my full potential is being squandered away, so I'll begin to kick in the doors of 3 letter agencies until recruit me; or I die trying.
I've come to the conclusion that you need to make an impression with these sort of things, so I'm going to just let my words flow freely. So here we go:
Basics:
Height: 5'7
Weight: 175, could stand to lose a few lbs to get my abs back.
Eyes: Brown eyes.
Hair: Long curly brown hair (think Slash Rose's illegitimate son.)
Race: White.
Ethnicity: Hispanic (Cuban.)
Languages: Spanish, English, Sign-language.
Profession: Network Engineer in NW DC.
Religion: Agnostic.
A little about me:
I like long walks on the beach, sunsets, oh did I mention that I'm a sadist, and that I'm utterly insane?
I've been called a silver tongued devil; Quick witted, charismatic, with just the right amount of sarcasm.
Hobbies: Not being bored, it's a lot harder than it sounds. I enjoy learning/conversing about The Universe/space, science, and technology. I was quite nomadic in my 20s, having visited two different countries, lived in over 17 states, visited over 38.
Music: I'm more of a rhythm of the beat type of person vs. lyrics, but generally I've found myself to enjoy electronica. Definitely like a lot 80s synth pop, but again, this is just the preference, not really against the rest of the genres.
Shows: Billions, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Board Walk Empire, Billions, Rome, Deadwood, Halt and Catch Fire, The Sopranos, South Park, Mad Men, Dexter,
Movies: Beetlejuice, Brain Scan, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb,
"What are you looking for?"
Well I can encompass a Master, a Dominant, or a Daddy, so it's really what can I provide for you?1
"How is such a thing possible?" Antisocial Personality Disorder (3.4 for those interested.)
"Why was it necessary to mention that?" To give credence as to how I can, and have been all aspects of Dominance.
"Monogamy or polyamory?" Favoritism towards polyamory, but seeing as it's rare to find multiple partners that allow me to explore my more sadistic side without tension, and/or drama, I'd go with monogamy if the individual allowed me to be depraved.
Preference in the following order: Slave, submissive, little (I will explain further below.)
Kinks: Sadism, TPE, CNC, bondage, degradation, humiliation, knife play, rope play, rape/abduction play, choking, impact play, spanking, hair pulling (I think you get the idea by now, there are still far more, here's a more comprehensive list.)
Experience: 15+ years.


So about that whole preference thing, as I am on the ASPD spectrum I'm capable of fulfilling whatever role(s) are required of me to get what I want. So let me explain further, I'm openly telling you far ahead of time that I lack emotions and empathy, with the hopes that me giving you the illusion of whatever it is you require, will be met with reciprocation of the kinks we can agree upon. This is where the waters get muddied for little's, I can definitely treat you like the princess you want to be, without all the douche-baggery you'll deal with as people tugging at your heart strings. Plenty of people around here pretend to be Daddies and will leave you absolutely heartbroken. Tired of games? Tired of bullshit? Well here's someone willing to give you all the care, attention, and affection you desire without any hassles.
"Why would you want to be a Daddy Dom given your lack of emotions, and empathy?"
I am a social chameleon. I've been perfecting my art for the majority of my life, I like the challenge. I like to learn people and, give them what they want with the idea that I get what I want in the end, it's called a social transaction. I know what respect is, and I believe I need to write a little about this. Once we've discussed clear limits, and terms, they shall not be crossed, it's counter productive for me to lose my play thing(s). I can be fiercely territorial of all my possessions, that includes the individual(s) I'm involved with, what is mine will be protected, whether you're a slave, a submissive, or a little.If you want someone to completely treat you like trash, I'm more than willingly to oblige, if you need a savior and a protector, well I can do that too. I'm able to encompass what is required; a means to an end.
"What are you looking for in a submissive?" I'd like it to extend outside of the bedroom, but if it doesn't, whatever, I'm not going to repeat myself, so hopefully you've read this in it's entirety.
"What are you looking for in a slave?" Mostly aesthetics, and objectification. Of course I'd expect loyalty, servitude, and there's a plethora more, but I don't feel I need to be too descriptive on this part.
Now that I've written a fucking novel about myself, let's get to you....
Age: I prefer them younger (18+) , but have dated women as old as 45; generally if I find you attractive, I won't care.
Height: the shorter the better, but I've dated women taller than myself, not a deal breaker.
Weight: I'd like someone on the smaller side, a few extra pounds will be acceptable, but no one overweight please, just not my thing.
I will list things below in order of preference, not necessarily a disqualifier. (This is only opinion, not a rating system.)
Race: White, but as long as I'm attracted I won't care, I don't discriminate.
Ethnicity: N/A read above.
Language(s): The more the merrier, accents are a huge plus, whether a southern drawl, or other.
Religion: I'm completely open to allowing you to practice whatever you'd like, just don't expect me to participate; I can be respectful of your beliefs, as long as you're respectful of mine, I am a man of science, The Universe is my religion (so to speak.)
Eyes: Blue, green, hazel, brown (If you have Heterochromia iridum you move to the front of the line, I like mutations.)
Hair: The longer the better, no preference as to style, as for color: I prefer true blondes, redheads, dirty blondes, and then brown.
Tattoos: Sure, whatever, as long as it's not overwhelming or flat out tacky, in this day in age it's harder to find someone with none, so as the trend follows above.
Piercings: Depends, some people can pull off septum piercings, but I personally dislike them, so if it compliments your facial features, sure why not. But there is definitely a breaking point where it becomes overwhelming and you just look like Hellraiser.
Education: Strong preference towards educated women, this does not necessarily mean academics, open to all.
Profession: No preference, but I do tend to like women in psychology (I have my reasons.)
Personality: If I have to learn "your" pronouns, or apologize for my "white male privilege" you can fuck right off; I don't care about politics.
Children: Strong preference in favor of not having them, unless we never intend to meet, or you don't expect a level of commitment from me to them, then I don't readily care, non-factor. To explain a tad bit, it isn't that I can't, I just would rather not raise children, I have too many plans in life that children would derail, maybe later.
If you're interested in communicating further, I prefer talking on these platforms and in this order: Discord, WhatsApp, Reddit Chat\, Skype, Kik,* open to other forms of contact.
\Reddit Chat isn't the same thing as their mailing system, just an FYI.*
Go ahead and shoot me a message, I'm waiting.

An update:
Well just to filter some things out, since I get this so many times... I will not be putting a big editorial process to this update(I say this now, after already re-reading, and editing a minimum of 5 times; I'm a slave to my own perfectionism,) so if you mostly have questions about me, ASPD, and things of the like, read this before you message me.

While I absolute love to talk about myself because I'm just such a narcissistic-hedonist, I also do get bored of repeating myself, even if it is a new person. As such read everything in it's entirety before you message me, as I'm going to entertain less, and less messages about me, and not what I'm seeking, I'd rather focus on only replying to potential partners, and absolutely nothing else, that being said if anything I have not covered in this update, or post still burns an answer from you, by all means message me.


"Were you formally diagnosed?"
I get asked about this A LOT, I'm not going to go into very many details, suffice it to say, yes, but it's been labeled as a misdiagnosis, all you need to know is I score high, and I do the things you'd expect, the pyromania, the violence that is actually associated at early age, the works, I'm not comfortable giving you more beyond that, and I will not be entertaining questions about my personal life, maybe a partner could ask me those questions, but I'm not letting you in my head, that's my game, not the other way around :).
Please do your own research beyond this point, it's borderline laziness how often I keep getting asked about this.

"Why are you so open about it(ASPD)?"
Isn't it obvious? A lot of you can't fathom why someone with ASPD would just openly come out, and admit to people, well I guess I really should've brushed up on this when I first made my post, or at least go into a far more descriptive detail than I had originally, so here goes:

If I'm ever to lead a sort of a long term relationship based on trust, and honesty, just how in the HELL do you expect me to explain this to you ever so casually? It's best to show your cards in the beginning, this is my own baggage, or some form there of.

There's two reasons I'm choosing to do this online, and vehemently under anonymity; 99% of you will be irrelevant to me, 99% of you will never meet me, it's just that simple, ergo why wouldn't I just preface my entire description as such, and as brutally honest as possible? Secondly I do not want a partner whom I need to continue to wear a mask for, I want to be me, the real me, the good, the bad, and the ugly.

What I find the most is women that fetishize the entire ordeal, that's all fine and dandy, but it does show just a lack of understanding about what APSD is as a whole, and to be perfectly blunt, you're wasting my time, I don't need to feed into your lonely thrill romance you spun in your head from watching true crime dramas. More often than not, this what happens, spare us the role-playing, I'm just not that bored.

"Empathy"
One clear distinction I'd like to make, so I can stop getting asked about it, we DO have empathy, it's just not how YOU experience empathy. Think of a light switch, by default most of the population's is on, ours is off by default, and furthermore we have the ability to turn it on, and off. Yes, it is that simple, yes we use it for manipulation, now stop asking me about this, it's boring to repeat this.

"Emotions"
Boredom, rage. This is what I'm capable of in the dark, empathy off. I'm constantly seeking stimuli, if you notice by actually looking through my posts, I've moved a ton of times, and always national parks... New atmosphere, new adventures, new dangers, you know, the shit that gets your heart pumping, adrenaline. This is my favorite drug, this is the high I constantly chase to kill the boredom. Rage is just self explanatory, my defaults are animalistic.
I am fully capable of experiencing all emotions, it's just for the most part, because I don't want do, I don't allow myself to.

"Manipulation"
For the longest time I told myself who cares if I burn bridges in my wake, I'm building a highway in its place. Mostly still true, and I absolutely use it on a daily basis for survival, I must stress, and emphasize survival, here is why; I'm human, like the rest of you, what do you do on a daily basis, if not find means, and ways to survive, and entertain yourself? I know no other way other than to use people to my advantage, I minimize the damage where I can, and move about my daily existence, guilt, and worry free about doing any wrong, an argument could be made that we all use each other in some weight, or capacity, and that's good enough for me.

I'm sure by now you're probably wondering what the hell any of that has to do with anything, it's simple if the point flew over your head, again. I'm tired of manipulating people, using them, abusing them, discarding them, I didn't grow a conscious I'm not "growing" as a person, but much more likely, I'm just bored of the routine, or the process, which has become the symphony of my life.

"Love"
I by no means ever want to experience this love you all chase like Alice clumsily falling down the rabbit hole. I've seen it so much in my life it's downright pathetic, and I actually feel bad for those of you that have such strong emotions, see empaths. You're slaves to these emotions, you let people use and manipulate you, you've been hurt, and had your heart ripped from your chest, and it feels like you no longer have purpose, lacking direction, and meaning in life. I merely know this from generally observing humans for most of my natural born life. I'm more than happy to remain the way I have always been, and never wish to experience emotions in the way you do, I find it to be an advantage, one I can apply to more important things in life, like the pursuit of knowledge.

I hope the psych nerds will now stop asking me these questions, I've paid my dues.

"Preferences"
My preferences, are just that, a list of my preferences, at no point in any of my writing did I say I was prejudice between one thing, or that I show favoritism. I merely made a chart listing some of the attributes that I myself, personally find to be significant to me, but that isn't to say, or detract from other things. It's the equivalent of asking me if I prefer Metallica, or Megadeth; well I'm going to say I prefer one over the other, but I enjoy both, and the genre as a whole, the genre being women in this case. I enjoy women for my own personal entertainment, and amusement -- which makes it all the more hilarious to me when I get called a misogynist.
so please spare me all your comments, and messages telling me that it's so "intimidating", if my post intimidates you, what can I really even begin to say about that? It doesn't sound like we'd be compatible, or much less you'd be able to accept me as a person, in any case this is a personal issue.

"You Need Help!"
I know what the help is, they just remind you repeatedly that your actions have consequences, they do not prescribe a medication for this, just therapy, and I know enough already to check myself, it really is that easy.
P.S:
"To My Adoring Fans"
You call me an edge-lord, cringe, and a wide range of inane insults, that truly don't phase me, since I get a lot of these messages, I thought I'd give you my rebuttal; just so you know I sleep naked so that anyone that doesn't like me, can kiss my ass - feel free to visit anytime!
P.S.S: I now operate, function, and walk amongst the elite of the nation; I see my kind everywhere, this is what Rome must of felt like in it's heyday; Cicero you clever bastard... I bid you all adieu -- and depart with this:
{"Το σύμπαν είναι αλλαγή. η ζωή μας είναι αυτό που την κάνουν οι σκέψεις μας.";}
Sincerely,
<~sodomy>

2023.04.01 09:17 iaminsanereal [F4A] Searching For Fandom RP Partners! (Canon x Canon or Canon x OC).

Hi! I'm looking for some new roleplay partners as I've recently found myself with some free time on my hands and a lot of inspiration. I'll list some stuff I'm interested in and specific things I'm looking for down below. ♡
ABOUT ME/WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR
I write long, detailed replies in the literate style. My length can vary based on what I receive, but for interest's sake I like to keep them from being too absurdly long. Third person is heavily preferred, but I'm not a stickler for tense. I'm looking for someone who is at LEAST 18.
Content wise, I prefer dark and drama filled plots. We can discuss what that means in detail later but, for clarification, I'm not looking for slice of life fluff at the moment. With that said, I'm one hundred percent open to multiple plots and tropes, don't be afraid to suggest things! I'm pretty lenient with fiction. Currently I'm looking for Canons (any gender pairing) or OCs that are well-developed/written.
Fandom-wise, I'm also a big fan of crossover roleplays as well. But that can be up for you to decide.​
Looking to give ships time to grow, create the chemistry in RP, and enjoy a gradual burn. Prefer the lead in and then 'fade to black' approach for the adult situations.
Main goal is to dig into the canon history and building on it in interesting ways. Appreciate thoughtful & nuanced portrayals that treat canon characters as complex.
I am a literate writer and expect the same from you. One-liners are only acceptable for the interactions that demand them, but they will remain rare. I will not drown you in text every other response, but I will write up to what I feel is appropriate and I expect you to do the same. I average 3-6 paragraphs once we are past introductory material.
Please be open to writing a cast of characters if the plot calls for it. I don't mind if the focus is solely on two people, but there is room for secondary and background characters.
Would love to tailor plots to the specific characters and their potential dynamic. I absolutely love the process of plotting, workshopping ideas, spinning off into AUs and generally finding something that can be really character driven.
Plot-based stuff is going to be all up to discussion. Things can get dark. They can be as dark as you want them to be. On the lighter side, I love the different relationship dynamics that can come of the characters unique personalities. Either way, if you have an idea, spring it on me and we'll see if things work out.
Have an idea for a scene? Found a picture that inspired you? Send it to me! Be invested when it comes to plotting/worldbuilding. There's nothing worse than receiving one sentence in reply to two paragraphs of ideas, or having a doormat partner who says "sure" to whatever I ask. Building ideas one on top of the other, watching them snowball into amazing plot threads brings me joy. But having to pull plot ideas like I'm pulling teeth makes me think you're not interested, and I will lose interest in return.
For now, I'm only looking to write MxF and FxF pairings.
Last but not least, and this is not a requirement, I'm a huge fan of talking about our plot. By that I mean I enjoy making playlists, sharing pinterest boards and random photos that remind us of the characters et cetera. If you're not interested in that, no harm no foul, just something to keep in mind!
FANDOMS/THE CHARACTERS I CAN PLAY IN THEM
Hunger Games (Books & Movies): Clove Kentwell, Katniss Everdeen, Glimmer Belacourt or Annie Cresta.
Harry Potter (Books & Movies): Hermione Granger, Ginny Weasley, Pansy Parkinson or Fleur Delacour.
Scream (All Movies): Sidney Prescott, Tatum Riley, Cici Cooper, Jill Roberts or Tara Carpenter.
DC (Movies/Series & Comics): Harleen Quinzel or Zatanna Zatara.

If you're interested, please reach out! You can shoot me a message and we can discuss a bit before adding each other on Discord. Even if I seem familiar, please feel free to reach out again, I'm more active now and very much looking forward to writing with you. Thank you so much!
