2023.03.22 22:55 Evening_Table6188 Should I try finding my Chinese siblings?

Hello, so this is a bit weird and long story. A throw away account.
I am from Austria myself originally, and on this new year, I flew back here with my girlfriend, Korean girl. It was first time she visited Europe, saw my parents, family and everyone. And my uncle also happened to be with us this time, he is my father's twin brother. Very extroverted, easy to talk, and quite a crazy lad when gets drunk. And everything was going well and cool, we were eating, my grandma was talking to my gf, mother was cooking desserts, nephews were playing around, aunt was helping my mother, my father went for smoke.
So I was alone talking to uncle, who got a bit drunk by this point already, and he asks me this: - So, is everything serious between you two, or are you just trying different flavors? - No uncle, everything is serious, can you please lower your voice? He laughs and says:
- It's good that your Opa is not alive, he would not approve of this you know? He did not approve of your dad's adventure.
(my grandfather was a ww2 ss vet, though he was sorry for his past beliefs, some habits die harder I guess; though from what I remember him, he could have been ok with my gf, she's very charming after all))
- Well...maybe yes, maybe no. What do you mean, what he did not approve of dad?
My uncle smiles and tells me to not tell my mother, that this is nothing serious. - You know that we traveled to across the world during the 90s, right? Visited Asia too.
- Yeah.
- So, the thing you don't know, is that your father forgot there not only his family ring, but a kid or two.
I am thinking he is talking some bullshit cause he is drunk and laugh a bit. He looks for his wife and my mom, gets serious and continues.
- During our visit in Hong Kong, there were these two Chinese ladies, and I am not sure how this goes now, but those times, Europeans were a rare thing in Asia, and wherever we went, we were treated like exotic animals, in a good sense though.
At this moment I am very glad my gf's German is quite bad and she won't understand anything he is saying, and my grandma hears almost nothing unless you scream.
- So, once. We were in a bar, and there were these two Chinese girls, very pretty, but quite dumb now that I think about it. We had some fun time while drinking, they had good English, after some time - they were straight and open, they wanted a child from your father - to have children with blonde hair and bright eyes or something. Obviously, a young, dumb, and not very responsible jock as your father agreed. Unfortunately I had dark hair.
He laughs like crazy, then thinks about that and goes silent, my mother brings food and then goes away. He continues more silently, I am seeing where this is going and just listen.
- You know your father was very attractive back in the day, even more than you. Very tall, long blonde hair, green eyes, and athletic. Basically a wet dream of Hitler. And of those Chinese girls. So, he did impregnate them and after that never met them anymore. The only thing we know is surname of one of them and picture with both from that night, I still have it somewhere around.
- Uncle .... I am not sure if this is some bullshit story or if you are telling the truth. No way my father would do something like this.
He laughs and drinks.
- Well, just don't tell anybody.
I am sitting there completely shocked, don't know what to do or say, and thinking about talking to my dad but don't know what to say or begin with.
Then few minutes later my mother runs in the room and asks my uncle harshly: What you were talking about here?
He acts overly surprised: What? About the winter and how warm it is this year.
- Don't lie to me, your wife asked me to talk to you.
Basically my uncles 13 year old niece went and told my mother and aunt whatever she heard from us, my mother did not understand of course anything she said and asked my aunt about it, she could not come up with a lie and asked to talk to her husband. Then my mother asked me, then him, again and again until my father came in. All in all, my father told her the truth but did not consider it anything serious or worth paying attention to.
My mother cried a bit, my girlfriend tried to calm her with my aunt and she later called me in another room and before I started apologizing she asked me:
- So, what are you going to do?
- What?
- Are you going to find about your siblings?
- What? But...
- Don't be like your father, please. I am not crying because he slept with someone else, we didn't even know each other then. I am sad how lightly they treat this thing. There are children somewhere that don't know about their father or family from other part of the world, you should definitely look for them and try to find them when you visit Korea next in April. Hong-Kong is not far from there.
My mother is a sweetheart, I know)
So, I did not really try to say anything to her cause I did not want her to be more sad. Whenever my mother calls me, she asks me about my plan, and over the course of these few months I've been ensuring her that I will look into this and try, but the chances are low and all. My father thinks it's a waste of time, but has nothing against it if that's what we want.
Now, the advice I want on this topic is: Should I really try to establish contact with these people? Maybe they don't want to know anything about their biological father, maybe they hate him? Maybe they are not interested? Or maybe they would be? Should I seek them out and just try to be friends at least with my biological siblings? (over the course of these months, I am pretty sure I know who they are and where they live, but I am not really eager to contact them and interfere with their life).
What do you think, reddit? Should I follow my mother's advice or should I just continue living without touching the ghosts of the past?

2023.03.22 22:29 Wutislifeeee MIL Harassing Me

Back again because I really need to vent. This post may seem like it’s just picking at my mother-in-law however, I just really need to vent or else I may lose it. Whenever I try to talk about this with someone, it always feels like they never fully understand the situation and just tell me that I have to accept her because she’s my mother-in-law and if I love my husband, I need to make things work. But I just don’t accept this for myself.
So for the past almost a year now, since me and my husband have gotten married, his mother has started to send us daily Bible quotes (I’ve already told her I’m not religious, but she still keeps sending these text messages daily) , sends me 5 to 7 videos on Instagram a day, likes all my Instagram stories (except for the ones where I’m doing some thing for myself like school, or some other type of achievement), has been trying to schedule plans with us weekly that we keep declining respectfully, and continues a weird competition with me (last night I posted a homemade dinner and this morning she’s sending me and my husband recipes of meals wants to cook us when we visit her just an example). So I know none of this sounds extremely bad I get that, but me and my husband have been together for 10 years and this lady has never showed any interest in getting to know me, except for when she tries to hang out with her son. Not once has she ever said hey let’s go to lunch just me and you or made any individual attempt to get to know me or my family. Now that we are married I wake up every day to AT LEAST 7 to 8 notifications from her on my phone. It drives me absolutely crazy.
I’ve told my husband to tell her about the religious text before but he hasn’t and every time I remind him about it, he seems to be able to change the subject somehow. I also feel like I don’t want to keep complaining to my husband about his mom because I know that’s his mom but it’s really hard when she tries to overly enmesh herself in our life/relationship. Me and my husband work a lot and I am in full-time school so we rarely have any days off and when we do I feel bad about posting or showing that me and my husband are doing anything because she takes that as we never want to make time for her. her entire family knows that she’s overbearing and dramatic, but they all put up with her because they say that’s just the way she is. I’ve had talks with my sister-in-law and she seems to always have my mother-in-law‘s back about this. Also saying she is adopted and probably needs us extra to show her that we love her. To me I just don’t have the time or energy and being around her really disrupts my peace I say this because whenever we’re around her, she needs all the attention at all times, treats my husband like he’s still a baby, and on top of that, she has completely archaic backwards views on things (cough cough MAGA).
Anyway, this is more of a venting post because if I don’t tell people who understand my situation, then I will literally go crazy. So thank you all for reading 😅😅

2023.03.22 22:29 AverageGene My Journey(Benefits, all the goodies, 30+ Days)

I had a few 20+ and 7+ day streaks before this streak, I don't count days so I assume it's more than 30 days since I started in February. I have been going string since February, a few wet dreams along the way, but they really haven't done any damage whatsoever.
Broken Hand
My hand my broken during this streak, I had surgery and it was bandaged for close to a month I have to say even the doctor was very surprised by my fast recovery. He told me that it would take 3 months to get back to normal capabilities after he took off the bandages. It took me 5 days .From the 17th to today precisely.I can do push-ups, chin ups, lift weights just fine, I can't go too heavy on the weights category, at least I haven't tried but only issue is a bit of mobility.
The recovery process was so goddamn fast even I am amazed, one day I can't even bounce a basketball, do simple yoga poses. A few days later I can do all that without any pain whatsoever.
I had been stagnant for a month, a body few 15-30min body weight exercises some days and that was it. Nothing to brag home about.
I got to the gym this week, and I am dunking like crazy. Where the fuck did that bounce come from? I'm not even black.
Then I did something crazy today, played basketball for 4 hours. I am talking full games, high intensity, good players, some proffesional. I only had breakfast at 9:30. And this was from 3pm till 7pm, non-stop, only for a few water breaks and that was it.
I felt like passing out after, but that was due to my electrolytes being hella low. I ate some food after, and I felt like I can do it again(definitely not for 4 hours though)
I could never do something like this before, even if I was conditioned while I was PMOing. I would need to eat lunch and would be very exhausted afterwards.
I've gotten very attractive during this streak. If I pulled a pic of me before and after, someone could easily say these are completely different people. I get compliments here and there. Most girls around my age seem to be very nervous around me at first, then seem to very receptive to things I say, body language, etc. I get looks everywhere I go, short glances, some soul gazing stares, inviting looks, and sometimes they come to my proximity.
A girl aquantince of mine that I saw before and whilst I was in this journey. Literally treated me as if I was a different person. Before very cold During the retention period, she just couldn't get enough of me. I'm trying to leave, it's getting late, she would tell me to stay, offer me tea, snacks, and keep filling my cup, so I didn't have to go.
I had this instance where I was working out, this lady came right near me and was for a moment copying my stretches note for note.
Shit Tests
I got shit tested by a lot of guys, usually old aquantinces. Some didn't even want to acknowledge my existence. We'd play pick up, and they'd create drama over nothing. Type of shit that would get on your nerves.
Others though, they would be way more friendly to you, try to help you out in some ways. I got free entry to my old gym. And he was like, you can come back any time you like. It's the type of gym where you have to sign up annually, there is no day passes.
Now this is a different country, I was staying at during my recovery. Friends can really go over and beyond for you. If you are liked.
After I hit a certain point, I had to transmute or else, I would just feel outright terrible. Energies that were stuck needed to be converted.
I'd get crazy craving to ejaculate or have sex. I'm talking they were so bad, it felt like withdrawl symptoms for a drug. You couldn't just hold it, it would fuck you up mentally. You had to transmute, or at some point you would succom to these lower emotions.
The thing is when your in this mode, all the benefits seem to disappear, chicks won't dig you anymore, and your a mess energetically.
Meditation, the type that you sync in with your body, and breathing helped tremendously.
Journeling as well, reading eye opening stuff, and mind set changes.
Once the blockages go, It feels great, even too great.
I had this instance today when I was at a coffee shop, drank a cup of coffee with friends. Now I don't usually drink coffee. But this time It felt so intense, it felt like a cocaine rush. For a moment I felt like I was going to die from the stimulation.
Edit: I have not made up anything, this is completely accurate. For all the deniers, deny it however you wish. Semen retention is goddamn real, I have nothing to prove to you. I've am just writing what I have experienced so far. I've been trying to get this thing right for over 3 years and this is the further I have ever gone.

2023.03.22 22:11 SpookyBitch_ I wish I'd listened to Alice.

Alice and I loved to explore abandoned buildings, especially if there was a hint of anything paranormal. Two months ago, we went to a dilapidated house two towns over. It is isolated from the rest of town, surrounded by woods and is boarded up. It has a sketchy history with strange deaths, dating back to when it was built in the 1800s. The last owners fled after their son died at the house in the 60s. No-one's returned since and so it fell into disrepair.

We arrived there just after dusk. There are signs along the dirt road leading up to the house, “no trespassing” and “turn back”. It didn't deter us but I wish it did. We parked the car amongst the trees and made our way across the grounds. The only sound was of branches snapping under our footsteps. You couldn't hear the trees or any animals in the surrounding woods. The heavy silence had the hairs on the back of my neck standing up, it felt unnatural.

We done a quick lap around the outside of the house, looking for the easiest point of entry. There was a back door that had some wood nailed across it, it snapped and came off with not much effort. We entered in to the kitchen, my face involuntarily screwed up from the musty, stagnant smell which made Alice laugh.

We explored the house using our flashlights. It was still fully furnished and there were clothes hanging in the wardrobes. Every surface was covered in thick dust and there was mould on the walls and fabric. What we first found strange, was that it didn't seem as if anything had been touched since someone had lived there. Usually, when we explored abandoned buildings, there'd be evidence of others having been there before us. You'd expect to see graffiti or the place to have been trashed by kids or something. This house looked like it had been completely untouched since the owners left.

We were looking around the main bedroom when Alice asked me, “In all the places we've been, have you ever had such a strong feeling that we shouldn't be here?”
I laughed, “to be fair, we shouldn't be in any of these places.”
Alice shook her head with a slight smile, “maybe it's because it looks like we're the first ones to break in to this one.”
She was clearly uneasy, I should have suggested leaving at that point. I would give anything to go back and say “let's go”.
Instead I said, “this is the creepiest place we've been to, maybe we'll actually make contact this time.”
I pointed at the dusty, full length mirror in the corner of the room and asked “shall we try scrying?”

For those of you who don't know, scrying is a method that can be used to make contact with spirits. There are a few different ways of doing it, but Alice and I favored using a mirror. Basically you clear your mind of all thoughts, sort of putting yourself into a trance like state, whilst looking into the mirror. If it works, it allows you to see things in the mirror. We had tried scrying in every building we explored, although it had never worked for us before. We had been obsessed with the paranormal since we were kids though, so we never gave up on trying it.

This was the first time Alice had been reluctant to do it. She said she felt like it was a bad idea, that she had a feeling we might be messing with something we shouldn't. I ignored her hesitation. I ignored her obvious fear. Hell, I ignored my own gut telling me to leave it well alone. I pushed and convinced her to do it. I'll never forgive myself for that.

I wiped the dust off of the mirror as best I could and sat in front of it. Alice moved to the edge of the room out of the mirrors view, her eyes locked on me. I stared into the mirror and began clearing my thoughts. For a few minutes there was nothing, but I could feel the air in the room had changed. So I was patient and sat perfectly still. Eventually I saw some slight movement on the left edge of the mirror, a dark shadow. I watched intently as whatever it was would slightly come into view, disappear and come back. Then a second shadow showed on the opposite side. Then another at the top. Then another in the top left corner.

I spoke slowly to Alice, describing what I could see. I don't know what her reaction was to any of this, she knew she had to stay quiet as to not distract me and break the connection. I continued looking into the mirror, watching as more and more shadows came into view. After a few minutes, there was at least ten of them. The shadows became more defined, I could start to make out their faces. They looked sad and they were reaching out to me. I could see their mouths moving, but I couldn't hear them.

I don't know what came over me, but I had this overwhelming feeling of sadness and pity. I leaned closer to the mirror. I think I heard Alice take a step at this point. Maybe she was going to stop me, I wish she did. I put my hand on the mirror and asked them, “what happened to you?” As soon as I asked, multiple voices started screaming, “help us!”, “he won't let us leave!”, “he'll take you too!”. The voices were unbearable, there was so many screaming at me at the same time. I covered my ears, closed my eyes and shouted “STOP!”

The silence returned and Alice asked me what was wrong. I asked her if she heard them. Her face was as white as a sheet as she said no. I looked back to the mirror and the people were gone, I assumed the connection was broken and I was relieved. The feeling of sadness was gone, but I still felt pity for them. I knew something terrible had happened to them, that something terrible was still happening to them. I could feel it so strongly.

I stood up and started to explain to Alice what I had seen and heard. I looked back to the mirror briefly and in the reflection of the open door, I could see a dark, tall figure standing at the other end of the hallway. I kept my eyes locked on it and beckoned Alice over to look. She stood behind me and said she could kind of make something out, but it was dark. We both turned and shone our flashlights out into the hallway, but there was nothing there. We turned back to the mirror and it was right behind me, it leant into my ear and whispered “run.”

We sprinted out of the room and we could hear it running behind us, laughing maniacally. We ran to the kitchen, towards the only door we had taken the boards outside off. The figure was now stood in front of our only exit, blocking the way. I grabbed Alice's arm and dragged her back out of the kitchen. We ran into a bathroom and I locked the door behind us immediately. I stood back and listened intently, the silence of the house had once again returned. Alice was hyperventilating and I tried to calm her down. I told her it was just trying to scare us but, I didn't believe that.

We didn't know what to do, we couldn't hear any movement outside of the door but that could have been a trick to lure us out. We felt like we were trapped. We knew we couldn't stay in there forever, but we did not want to leave that room if that thing was still out there. We sat quietly, trying to think of a way to escape the house.

I thought about the spirits I first saw in the mirror, the sadness and pity that overwhelmed me when I connected with them. Then I thought about when I first saw the dark figure in the hallway, I was consumed with fear and knew we were in danger. I couldn't shake the feeling that the “he” the spirits referred to, was that figure. They were obviously connected somehow, so what if the spirits could help us? So I suggested trying scrying again.

Alice was adamantly against it. She felt the scrying was what set it all off, told me that we shouldn't have done it in the first place. I asked her what our other options were? There was something out there and we couldn't stay in the bathroom forever. She wouldn't budge. Then we heard laughing from the other side of the door. We stood as far away from the door as we could, watching it closely. We were both holding our breath, hoping it would just go away.

Every few minutes its activity would escalate. It started with the laughing. Then it began scratching at the door. Once it started throwing things at the door, Alice turned to me and said “fine, do it.” I frantically wiped the mirror down and tried my best to clear my thoughts. It was impossible with all the noise that thing was making and the fear saturating my brain. Alice could see me struggling and reached her hand out to mine. I gripped it tightly, took a deep breath and stared into the mirror intently. The spirits began to show along the edges of the mirror. The feeling of sadness returned. The fear also remained.

I asked them for help, they all started screaming over each other again. I pleaded for just one to talk at a time as I couldn't hear them. A teenage boy seemed to edge closer, he raised his hand to the others signalling them to be quiet. I asked him if he knew what was trying to attack us, he solemnly nodded his head and explained it was the same spirit that had trapped them all here. I asked him what he meant. He told me that this house has a dark spirit attached to it, he causes harm to people within it. I asked him why. An older lady spoke this time, she told me that the spirit wants people to die in this house, so he can trap their spirits here with him for eternity, where he can continue to torment them. The spirit outside of the door laughed wildly, the sound was almost deafening. Alice screamed at me to hurry up.

I asked the spirits in the mirror how to stop him. The lady told me the only way is to escape the house and never come back. She told me he likes to play with his victims first, but the longer you're here the more dangerous he will become. The lock on the bathroom door started to slide open slowly. I looked back to the mirror and the spirits were gone. Alice ran to the lock and was trying to keep it closed. I told her that we need to run out of this house right now. She screamed at me asking if I was crazy wanting to go out there. I told her we had no option but to get out of this house as fast as we could, I told her to trust me. She nodded and a tear slid down her face. I put my hand over hers and counted down from 3, we slid the lock open and burst through the bathroom door.

We ran as fast as we could towards the back door, furniture was being thrown around us as we ran. Alice was faster than me. I shouted at her that if anything was blocking that door, we had to run through it. We got to the kitchen and the figure was stood in front of the door again. Alice ran straight for it and braced to tackle it. I noticed it had something in its hand. I screamed “NO!” But it was too late. Alice barrelled into it and the figure disappeared. Alice fell to a heap on the floor. I ran to her and turned her over, the snapped wood we broke off the door sticking out of her stomach. I told her it'll be fine, that I'll get her out of there. She shook her head and pulled me closer, she lifted her head and whispered into my ear “run”. Then she was gone.

For the first time since I got there, I listened to her. I ran to the car and left. Once I got to the town, I called the police. They didn't believe me. They believe she had an accident when we broke in, that we were just stupid idiots messing around and it went wrong. There was a funeral but I couldn't bring myself to go. Her body might have been there but I know where she really is, stuck in that house. How do I ever forgive myself? I don't think I ever will. I need to find a way to free those spirits. To free Alice. I have to go back.

2023.03.22 21:49 yangenomics Tales from New London: The Engineers Protest (Fan Fiction)

In the heart of New London, amid the biting cold, the gurgling steam pipes and the towering tenements, a weary engineer named Dr. Arthur Harwood laboured tirelessly in the First Workshop. A once-renowned scientist and inventor from Cambridge University, Dr. Harwood had been one of the brightest minds of his generation, a pioneer in the field of robotic automation. But now, relegated to the role of a mere craftsman, he toiled away in a dimly lit assembly room with a handful of other lost souls, crafting prosthetic limbs for those who had fallen victim to the merciless frostbite that plagued the city.
The First Workshop was a veritable menagerie of mechanical marvels, from the high-powered steam cores in various levels of repair, to intricate fabricators that could churn out the essential glow worm electrical lights that each citizen was instructed to wear when they left their homes, to replacement parts for the Silver Scot, the city's last remaining automaton.
As Dr. Harwood worked, his fellow engineers laboured alongside him, their once-brilliant minds reduced to mere cogs in the great machine that was the Glorious City of New London. There was the intrepid Dr. Leonard Macdonald, once a famous theorist of electromagnetism hailing from Oxford, and the ambitious American fluidic systems engineer Dr. Elizabeth Conley. Among them was also Dr. Percevel Leclair, a French astrophysicist with a long history of dabbling in robotics, and Professor Heinrich Schmidt, a German scientist who had once been hailed as the father of modern steam power. Together, they formed a motley core of a crew of New London’s finest intellects, bound together by their shared indignation at the demeaning work that had been thrust upon them.
After periodic demonstrations in the Central District organized by the working class of New London, the engineers of the First Workshop were surprised to watch the Brotherhood of the New Order sanction a series of meetings with Major Wilkins to revise the colony’s labour policy. There were celebrations in the street when the Mad Captain announced that the fourteen-hour workshifts that had persisted since the city’s founding would be reduced to a more tolerable ten hours a day. The engineers, traumatized by the draconian rule of the New Order, took heart that perhaps the months of emergency conditions were coming to an end.
It seemed the Wilkins administration could hew to reason, if only enough citizens could come together to demand it. Conversations ran long in the First Workshop and at the pub after hours about how even with the reduction of work hours, the people of New London were working themselves to death without a single day of rest. Conversations with the medics at the infirmary only confirmed their worries, as they counted the number of work accidents and deaths of despair and realized they were ticking up. Besides this, the engineers loudly criticized City Hall for misappropriating their unique talents in their mission to survive.
But the proposals of further reform by Dr. Harwood and the other engineers were swiftly crushed when the Wilkins administration announced at a morning roll call that talk of further protests had been noted by the secret informers of the New Order. He told everyone gathered there that there would be no further reduction in work hours; the city did not have the population yet to sustain it. Furthermore, they would all do well to not balk at any of the sawdust food additives in their soup that week. Angered, but also deeply concerned for the colony, Dr. Harwood, Dr. Macdonald, and Dr. Conley took their grievances to the Propaganda Centre that day after their maintenance work of the formidable Silver Scot was completed.
Dr. Macdonald, a tall and lanky man with wiry glasses and a perpetual frown etched upon his face, had drafted the formal inquiry, detailing their grievances and their hope for a more equitable work environment. He led the delegation down Coal Street one afternoon, the long windy Arctic night hiding any sign of the passage of time, and marched bravely into the looming Propaganda Centre, its awesome exterior and red banners striking fear into their chilled bones. It had been some time since either of them had entered the building, as to do so without permission by the Guards was an easy way to end up on a watch list. Dr. Harwood gulped heavily, then pulled back the imposing double-reinforced steel door to let his peers take the first steps inside.
Upon entering the lobby of New London’s Propaganda Centre, the engineers were met with silent stares from the guards posted besides the front desk, who gripped their bayoneted rifles with the seriousness of the King’s Guard. The three dusted off the snow on their boots and Dr. Macdonald tried not to gawk at the dazzling sight of the administration’s clerks, Ms. Abigail Green and Ms. Megane Black, beautiful and poised in old world work dresses, their nails painted red and their hair in good fashion, seeming to flaunt their comfortable working conditions.
Dr. Macdonald, his voice wavering slightly, stepped forward slowly, saying, “We, your humble fellow citizens from the First Workshop, have taken it upon ourselves to provide a statistical analysis and series of practical recommendations to help inform the policy choices of the city administration.” He brought the sheaf of papers that was the First Workshop’s inquiry to the secretaries’ desk, his eyes pleading for understanding.
The two clerks, however, seemed to regard the engineers' request with scorn, their faces twisted into mocking sneers as they scanned the first page. They exchanged derisive glances, then Ms. Green dropped the sheaf unceremoniously onto a stack of papers beside her. She turned to their leader, her voice dripping with disdain.
"Good sir, do you truly believe that your pitiful pleas will be heard by our esteemed Major Wilkins?" she asked, her eyes narrowing. "You should be grateful for the work you have been tasked to complete by the New Order. Many are not so fortunate to work all day indoors under a steam vent."
The engineers’ faces flushed with anger and humiliation. Ms. Green reached for a dreaded clunky switch behind her, which would instantly trigger the facility’s radiogram, summoning more guards of the City Watch. The men on either side of the front desk watched with bated breath. The threat was clear: any further dissent would be met with swift retribution. Dr. Harwood’s courage failed and he turned hastily for the door. His two coworkers muttered apologies and they departed.
The following day, as they returned to their workshop, they found their workspace patrolled by stern-faced guards from the City Watch. The engineers surpassed their daily production quota of prostheses and made significant headway on finishing their blueprints for enhancements to the Generator’s overdrive couplings. Yet, their disgruntled conversations only continued late at night in the alleyways behind the pub. Dr. Leclair and Dr. Schmidt were oblivious to the three’s lackluster behavior at the Propaganda Centre. Meanwhile, Dr. Macdonald and Dr. Conley blamed Dr. Harwood in private for not standing strong in their convictions.
One evening, as Dr. Harwood and his colleagues made their way home through the frosted streets of New London, they discovered a pamphlet in the snow, only one side disfigured by a wet boot. The paper was coarse and the typewritten text faded: it was clearly the result of an illegal printing press somewhere in the city. The pamphlet spoke of revolution, of overthrowing the New Order and the Wilkins administration, to forge a new, better future for the people of New London. The engineers were not alone in their continued discontent!
The engineers gathered in secret that night at a cousin’s bunkhouse at the cold side of the Steamshires, their voices a low murmur as they debated what to do with the incendiary literature. Dr. Macdonald, his eyes alight with a newfound fire, urged his colleagues to consider joining the rebellion, to fight for the rights and dignity that had been stripped from them.
"We have been silenced for far too long," he declared, his voice trembling with passion. "If we do not stand up against the injustices that have been heaped upon us, who will? Are we to remain mere cogs, our lives and dreams ground to dust beneath the heel of the Mad Captain?”
Others, however, were more cautious, their eyes darting nervously to the shadows that seemed to press in around them. Dr. Conley’s cousin, a stout soldier-cum-miner by the name of Geoffrey, spoke up, his voice trembling with fear.
"Leonard, I understand your frustration," he began, his eyes pleading for understanding. "But we have families to consider, friends to protect. Do you truly believe that joining this rebellion will make things better? Or will it only bring more suffering upon us all?"
The engineers continued to argue amongst themselves, their voices growing louder and more heated with each passing moment. Dr. Conley disagreed with her cousin and was eager to throw their lot in with the rebels. Their two European colleagues also were impatient to fight for a brighter future. Dr. Harwood remained steadfast in his belief that the price of rebellion was simply too high; they'd already seen what had happened to poor Thomas Winslow’s uprising, to say nothing of the night of terror during the Great Storm at the Battle of the Scaffolds.
As the debate raged on, the young Dr. Conley stepped forward, her eyes bright with determination. "We cannot allow simple fear to dictate our actions," she declared, her voice clear and strong. "Yes, there is risk in joining a rebellion. But there is also risk if we let Mad Bill work the entire colony to death! If we do not fight, who will, and when? We have no time to waste."
Her words seemed to strike a chord within the hearts of the engineers, and as they stood there, huddled together in the darkness, they made a silent vow to one another. A spark had been lit. And as the engineers returned to their labors the next morning, their hearts burned with newfound purpose.
The next night, their discussions took a different turn as they met with hushed voices at the snowblown far corner of St. George’s Square. The question to be resolved moved towards whether to make an attempt to contact existing rebels or wait for the rebels to make another move.
"Patience, my friends," urged Dr. Macdonald, his eyes gleaming with steely resolve, as Dr. Harwood nervously rubbed his hands. "We must bide our time and wait for the right moment to strike. The rebels will show more evidence of their activity, or even contact us when they're ready. We will join our forces with theirs to bring about the change we all desire."
"But how long are we to wait?" asked Dr. Leclair, his impatience clear in his voice. “A week? A month? I’ve seen people that can barely put a spoon to their mouths in the mess hall, we’re so overworked! We will not survive at this rate.”
Dr. Harwood found the City Watch at the First Workshop the next day and nearly shat himself out of fear that they had been caught. Instead, the hard-nosed lieutenant simply informed them of their need to oversee and hasten the construction of the city’s new industrial hothouses. They did their best to hold back their disappointment. They would miss the steam vents above their work stations and their heated water closets.
Yet, as they were guided to their new posts far from the Central District, the engineers knew this could be an opportunity to spread their message to the working people of the city. Arriving at the construction sites, arranged around a single roaring steam hub, they were met with a cacophony of hammering, sawing, and the grunts of exertion, punctuated by the occasional expletive or barked order. Yes, it would be an opportunity indeed.
The engineers would soon meet after hours with stories recounting their marvel at the construction teams’ willingness to toil for long hours in the snowy winds, to hoist up enormous pillars of steel and carefully position the fragile panes of thermal glass. The workers, most British nationals with the odd handful of Americans and Europeans, seemed emaciated, filthy, their bodies even twisted by the requirement of their hard labour, but they nary stopped for a break outside of a brief respite for a quick lunch of hard tack and fish soup. To Dr. Conley, she was filled with empathy which fueled more exasperated calls for action. Dr. Harwood, on the other hand, argued that perhaps they misjudged and the common people had more energy than they expected.
One day, a worker, a burly man by the name of Hugo Walsh with a bushy beard and the calluses of a lifetime of labor etched into his hands, approached Dr. Harwood.
"Oi, Doc," he rasped, his voice gravelly from years of inhaling the icy air, "I hear it's you lot wot built them crank-powered prosthetics. Saved me mate's life, that did. He'd 'ave been a goner otherwise. So, thanks for that, guv."
Dr. Harwood, touched by the sentiment, replied, "It's our pleasure, sir. We're here to help our fellow citizens in any way we can."
Overhearing the conversation a man named Freddie Hudson limped over, "Here to help, aye? While we break our backs buildin’? Must be nice, workin' in them fancy workshops for months at a time. All them heaters an' hot water on tap. Ain't like out 'ere in the bleedin' cold." He spat on the ground and walked off.
Dr. Harwood’s face reddened with anger at the ungrateful comment. Hugo frowned and looked at the ground, ashamed at the fellow’s rudeness. An outspoken woman on the team by the name of Sylvie Pearson had watched the scene and promptly marched over.
"Give 'em no mind, sir. It's only complaints that come outta that one's gob! Harwood, is it? I can't wait to get inside these gardens an' see 'em grow," she said, her voice full of wonder. "Imagine, a place right 'ere in New London Crater with lamplights to make things grow right in the dark winter! I've 'eard tell them plants already sprouted in the two we already built. Ain't it a miracle?"
The inventor’s ego was still bruised and he lashed out at Sylvie, “That’s Dr. Harwood to you, madam. And grow lights are no miracle, they are simply yet another gift from the arduous project of science. You lot would be wise to acknowledge the fact that without our educated minds, survival in this wasteland would be a fool’s dream!” He stormed off.
Yet, the other engineers were not so dispirited. Dr. Conley won that night’s debate at Geoffrey’s tenement that they could spare no more time. They had at least the responsibility to win the construction workers over to their side, while they had the chance.
The next day, the engineers assembled together at the steam hub and gave each other courage. Dr. Macdonald took leadership once again and approached a burly worker nearby named Dylan Lee. The doctor's hands shook slightly as he proffered a carefully folded and sealed parchment, detailing their concerns and ideas to reduce work hours and improve the lives of New London's laborers.
"Read this, Mr. Lee," Dr. Macdonald whispered, his voice trembling slightly. "It contains thoughts on how we might make things better for all of us."
Dylan hesitated, his eyes darting to the parchment in Dr. Macdonald's hand, then to the other workers toiling nearby. He looked back at Dr. Macdonald and, with a steely determination, called out to the others. "Oi, gather 'round! The doc's got somethin' he wants us to read!"
The workers all stopped, curiosity piqued, then set down their tools and shuffled closer.
Dr. Macdonald winced, unprepared for such a public display. Dylan took the letter, unfolded it, and began to read aloud, his voice rough and unpolished.
As the words filled the air, a mixture of hope, skepticism, and confusion began to manifest on the faces of the workers. The air around them crackled with tension, the cold wind blowing down from above the Crater as they listened to the engineers' proposal.
"What do they know?" snarled a thin, wiry man by the name of Keegan. "They ain't never had to lift a finger in their lives, and now they think they can tell us what's best for us?"
"Wait a moment," interjected Sylvie, as she rubbed her hands furiously to keep them warm. "Perhaps they're just tryin' to help."
The site erupted into mutters and shouts. The engineers, unaccustomed to the raw, unfiltered emotions of the workers, began to stammer out explanations, trying to assuage their concerns.
Dylan cut through all that with his voice booming over the others. "We can't risk it! Rebellion would cost us everything. You ‘eard the Captain, it’s only obedience that’ll save us in these tryin' times!"
The man’s gaze fell upon a pair of guards who happened to be walking nearby, their boots crunching on the frosty ground. He called out to them, his voice urgent and powerful.
"Guards! Over 'ere, we've got some troublemakers!"
The guards exchanged glances before swiftly making their way toward the gathering. The engineers, sensing the danger, immediately began to protest, their voices rising in a desperate attempt to avoid the consequences of their well-intentioned plan.
"Wait, you misunderstand!" Dr. Macdonald implored, his eyes wide with alarm. "We only wished to help the Major see reason and improve life for everyone!"
"'Improvin’ life?" Dylan snorted. "By bringin' unrest an' questionin’ orders?!"
One of the guards, a broad-shouldered man by the name of Lieutenant Murray, looked at the engineers sternly. "Let me see this letter," he demanded, his hand outstretched. Dylan handed it over as Dr. Harwood’s heart filled with dread.
The guard's eyes flicked over the parchment, scanning the words quickly before he passed it to his companion. The second guard read it, his face betraying no emotion, and handed it back.
"It seems you've been inciting dissent," Lieutenant Murray said sternly, his voice cutting through the frigid air. "You'll be coming with us."
"No, please, you must listen!" cried Dr. Harwood, his hands shaking. "We never meant to cause trouble!"
The guards paid him no heed, instead producing iron cuffs and securing them around the wrists of each engineer. Their faces were impassive, as if the act of arresting these men held no more significance than any other daily task. As they prepared to lead the engineers away, a hush fell over the crowd of workers.
"Please," Dr. Harwood tried once more, desperation etching lines into his face. "We were only trying to improve things. Our letter makes that very clear! Can't you see that?"
The guards remained stone-faced and unyielding, turning the engineers around to march them off to jail cells. The workers watched, their expressions a mix of fear and resignation, as their foremen were led away. They returned back to their tasks in the half-frozen muck.
In the cold, dank depths of Gridiron Prison that night, the engineering team huddled together in a lower jail cell, their spirits sinking with each passing moment. The stone walls seemed to close in around them, and the imposing guards patrolled the corridors with a relentless, watchful vigilance. The air was heavy with despair, and the only sounds that echoed through the cells were the soft moans of misery and the idle clanking of the pipes.
Suddenly, the cell bars slid open, and Major Wilkins himself strode in, a wolfish smile playing on his lips. He surveyed the engineers with a predatory gaze, his eyes dancing from one disheveled figure to the next.
"Well, well, well," he drawled, his voice smooth. "The great engineers of New London, brought low by their own misguided ambitions."
Drs. Schmidt and Conley, their faces gaunt, immediately began to protest the gritty dregs they had been given for dinner. Major Wilkins merely chuckled at their outrage, a twinkle of amusement in his eyes.
"Ah, yes," he said, smirking. "I imagine prison food is a far cry from the victuals served at the mess hall.” "You know, it's quite ironic," he went on, his voice dripping with amusement. "Here you are, the finest minds in New London, and yet you find yourselves behind bars. I must say, I expected more from the brilliant creators of our steam-powered prosthetics and those ingenious electric lamps."
The engineers bristled at the Major's mocking tone and his feigned ignorance at the full record of their accomplishments as some of the brightest minds in a generation. Dr. Harwood, his jaw clenched and his eyes flashing with defiance, shot back, "We were only trying to help New London survive as you commanded us to do. You've been working our people to the bone!"
Major Wilkins laughed, a rich, dark sound that echoed through the prison. "Ah, yes, your noble intentions. But, in all your genius, do you really believe you can change the world with your pitiful attempts at rebellion?" he asked, his voice scornful. "The New Order is here to stay, and you’d be wise to learn your place in it is to obey."
The Mad Captain paused for dramatic effect, then continued, “But fear not, my dear engineers, for I have a proposition for you."
The engineers exchanged wary glances, their hearts pounding. Major Wilkins leaned in closer to them in the jail cell, his voice low.
"You are far too important to our city to remain here," he whispered, his words like honey. "We need your skills, your expertise, to ensure the success of our hothouses, our factories and ongoing industrialisation. Still, let us not forget the gravity of your actions… after all… that little letter of yours, well, that could be grounds for execution."
The engineers stiffened, their bravery faltering as the weight of their predicament settled upon them.
"However," Wilkins continued, drawing out the word, "I am not without mercy. I am willing to overlook your misguided attempt at insurrection, on one condition. You will swear your loyalty to me and the New Order, and you will work tirelessly from now on to ensure the success of our endeavors. ALL OF OUR ENDEAVORS AS YOUR COMMANDER SEES FIT! In return, you can return now to your homes and your work tomorrow."
Though they had been staunch critics of the Major, the engineers found themselves doubting their earlier convictions. Dr. Harwood thought that perhaps the Mad Captain could be reasonable, after all. With heavy hearts, they agreed to Major Wilkins' terms, and he smiled in his victory.
As the days passed, the engineers continued to work on the hothouses, their doubts and fears gnawing at them. Once the structures were complete, they even joined the work teams to plant row upon row of potatoes, broccoli, turnips, kale, radishes, tomatoes, and pumpkins. Not another word was spoken of dissent with them, but any friendliness that existed before had been extinguished, as their fellow citizens wouldn’t dare talk to them for long.
The engineers, however, remained torn by their consciences during that long night of New London’s first winter. Dr. Conley was adamant that the rebellious printers of that godforsaken pamphlet had to be out there somewhere. Dr. Leclair opined that the workers assigned to the hothouses must have been hand-picked for their loyalty. They would try again to raise the working conditions of their colony, but this time would operate in an even more secret matter, speaking with only the most trustworthy souls they could find face-to-face in the shadows of the night. Dr. Harwood was more quiet than ever during their whispered debates, but they set their plans into motion nevertheless.
Dr. Macdonald spoke to a foreman at the coal mine. Dr. Schmidt made contact with a group at the steelworks that had flirted with the idea of a work stoppage. A few engineers at the Wall Drill finally gave Dr. Conley the time of day to win them over to the cause and she proved most persuasive. Slowly, although reports always had to be questioned for fear of misinformation, the engineers of the First Workshop detected the number of their supporters were growing.
One evening, back in Geoffrey’s tenement, the engineers gathered with a group of representatives from the discontent to discuss their strategy.
"Friends, we must rally the people," he declared, his voice firm with conviction. "We must make them understand that at the current rate of malnutrition, accidents, infections, and frostbite, our lives in the Crater are at risk. If we don't act soon, we will all perish."
Dr. Conley, nodded in agreement, adding, "The Wilkins administration hoards supplies, dreading the worst, but we have already been pushed to the brink. We need more food, adequate rest time, and it’s high time the New Order return the right of all good Christian men and women to worship as we please!"
Their message resonated with the beleaguered workers. They expressed eagerness to join the protest and make their demands known. A coal miner named Samuel Holmes spoke up, his voice quivering with emotion. "Major Wilkins has no right to keep us living like this. We deserve better. We deserve to live, not just survive!" An engineer from the industrial tools factory, a woman named Margaret Palmer, chimed in. "Yes, we've been pushed too far! We must stand in unity and make our demands known!”
The group's resolve strengthened with each passing day, and finally, the night of the protest arrived. The engineers, coal miners, steel workers, toolmakers and lumberers came streaming out of their homes towards the Central District. With Leonard and Elizabeth leading the charge, they marched past their enormous steam-belching Generator toward the Propaganda Centre, their voices raised in unison.
"We demand better conditions! We demand more food! We demand the right to worship!"
The air was thick with tension as the protesters came around the corner, to see that Major Wilkins and the Brotherhood of the New Order were waiting for them en masse. Someone had informed the administration of their plans! The militia were even there, standing in rows like a regiment, wearing red armbands to illustrate their loyalty. A horn blast came from beyond the infirmary, and the protestor’s chants faltered as they saw the Silver Scot take up a position beside them, four guards with rifles standing at attention atop its steel back. They braced themselves for the confrontation that was sure to come, their hearts pounding in their chests.
The engineers stood at the front of the crowd of protestors, locking eyes with Major Wilkins, neither side willing to back down. With a deep breath, Dr. Macdonald addressed the Major, his voice filled with resolve.
"Major Wilkins, we stand before you today not as enemies, but as fellow citizens of New London, united in our desire for this glorious city to survive. In light of our people’s deterioration from months of exhausting work schedules, we demand fair treatment, proper nourishment, and the right to worship as we see fit."
Major Wilkins stared back, his eyes cold and unyielding. "Ah, a veritable League of Extraordinary Protesters! Well, let me enlighten you, my international friends. Survival requires sacrifice, and I'm afraid your little tantrum only serves to delay the progress we desperately need."
The protesters took heart as a couple of children began to bang on makeshift drums. The crowd shouted their slogans again, and Dr. Conley stepped closer to the Mad Captain, her voice ringing with conviction. “Sir, we cannot ignore the suffering of our people. The methods of your administration have been harsh and unsustainable. We need change, and we need it now.”
"You dare to question my attention to the survival of humanity?" Wilkins bellowed, his voice booming across the Central District. "I have worked tirelessly to ensure our city's survival, while you waste time on this foolish protest! How many times must I explain that we cannot afford a single extra moment of delay? There is much work to be done, and your doubt only hinders us!"
"Major Wilkins," Dr. Macdonald started, his voice wavering, "we believe that work hours should be reduced to eight per day, with construction projects continuing in the evening only on a voluntary basis. This would be suitable."
Elizabeth chimed in, tripping over her words in her haste, "A-and we d-demand Saturdays a-and Sundays off, too! To give the people a needed rest! A-and…"
The Mad Captain raised an eyebrow, a sly grin spreading across his face. "So you want to work less and rest more, do you?" He paused, letting his words sink in before continuing, "Tell me, my dear engineers, how will New London survive if we all laze about like it's a never-ending holiday?"
Some of the workers who had joined the protest began to waver. Major Wilkins went on, "Perhaps we should send you all to the Propaganda Centre for re-education. It seems you haven't quite grasped the concept yet of the New Man."
As the debate raged on, the drumming and slogans from the crowd began to fade, replaced by a tense silence as they listened to the verbal duel. Major Wilkins, unfazed, continued to mock the protest leaders. A crowd gathered then, as New Londoners were drawn to the spectacle unfolding in the Central District in the full view of the City Watch and their lone automaton.
The engineers began to exchange panicked glances, struggling to find adequate responses to their charismatic leader. The crowd, sensing their uncertainty, began to laugh and jeer.
Major Wilkins' eyes twinkled with mischief as he turned his attention back to Dr. Macdonald. "Tell me, Doctor," he asked with condescension, "do you consider yourself more intelligent than an Apis mellifera?"
Dr. Macdonald blinked in confusion, caught off guard by the unexpected question. "I-I'm not sure I-I…”
Major Wilkins smirked, clearly enjoying the famous theorist's discomfiture. "Why, Doctor, I'm surprised at your ignorance! Surely a man of your intellectual prowess is familiar with the Latin name of the humble European honey bee?"
As Dr. Macdonald's face reddened with embarrassment, Major Wilkins continued his lecture. "You see, my dear engineers, even the simple honey bee understands the importance of hard work and cooperation in the face of adversity. They labor tirelessly, each one playing their part to ensure the survival of their hive. They do not complain, nor do they demand rest and leisure. They work because they know that their very existence depends upon it."
The engineers shifted uncomfortably in silence. Major Wilkins, sensing their weakness, pressed his advantage. "Now, if a tiny insect can grasp this fundamental truth, why is it that you, with your esteemed educations and lofty ideals, cannot?"
The crowd, once sympathetic to the protesters, began to murmur in agreement, swayed by the Major's persuasive rhetoric. Dr. Conley raised her voice again, stammering, "Y-you must take into account th-the rising number of work accidents, the malnutrition, the-”
“Oh, I have taken everything into account, rest assured doctor! We all have our role to fulfill and I have not fallen short as you have tonight. But, fear not, my esteemed debaters, for I have a solution!" The biting wind whistled its way through the streets of New London, a ghostly reminder of the icy world beyond the city's confines. Major Wilkins, standing tall amid the swirling snowflakes, sensed the tide of the crowd turning in his favor.
"Ladies and gentlemen, I understand that, in the past, I have spoken admiringly of General Napoleon for his force of vision and strength of will. I know that some of you may not approve, given the long years of war fought by our grandfathers against that tyrant. However, perhaps you would be more amenable to the ideas of the French leaders that came before Little Boney, the Jacobins.”
The crowd leaned in, curiosity piqued by the Major's dramatic shift in tone. He continued, "You see, the Jacobins sought to sweep aside the traditional systems of the past. They recognized that God had no mercy for humanity, even without the Great Frost as proof of his cruelty, and that the old ways, such as the seven-day Christian calendar, were holding them back. They understood the need for change, for progress."
Major Wilkins paused, allowing his words to sink in before delivering his proposal. "I believe we should adopt a new calendar, a ten-day calendar, much like the French Republicans of old. We will call it the New London Calendar, dated from our arrival here to honor the founding of our Glorious City."
The crowd murmured to each other, even the guards of the City Watch, wondering aloud where the Mad Captain was going with this. He raised his hands for silence before continuing. "By my calculations, eighty-nine days have passed since my arrival in the Crater with the vanguard group of the Arebates. As such, tomorrow shall mark the ninetieth day, a fitting time for us all to rest and reflect upon our sacrifices and progress... those who can be spared from vital labors, of course."
Cheers went up from the crowd and the engineers were stunned to see Dr. Leclair clapping in support. Drs. Macdonald and Conley stared at each other in disbelief. Well, that was something, at least. Would it be enough? Dr. Schmidt muttered about the need for new calculations of caloric expenditures.
Major Wilkins continued, his voice booming with authority as he raised up his hands to look around at the faces in the crowd, "From this day forth, the last day of each week of the New London Calendar shall be your day of recuperation and recreation!"
A band, having set up hastily nearby with trumpets and drums, struck up a lively military tune, their instruments cutting through the cold air and infusing the crowd with a sense of camaraderie. The music brought smiles to many the faces of those who had gathered, casting aside their worries. The engineers, realizing that they were losing the crowd's attention, made one desperate last plea for more generous working conditions. They shouted over the music, their voices hoarse and strained, but their words were lost in the cacophony.
Major Wilkins cut them off as the music’s volume increased. "My dear citizens," he shouted, “I know these are trying times. Which is why tonight,” the crowd leaned in, eager to hear, “Tonight, the last remaining jugs of moonshine shall be opened at the pub for all to enjoy.”
A cheer erupted from the gathered throng, their previous concerns momentarily forgotten in the promise of a night of revelry. As the jubilant crowd dispersed, Major Wilkins stepped towards the disheartened engineers, a wolfish grin upon his face. He draped his arms around the shoulders of Drs. Macdonald and Conley as he addressed them. "Ah, my esteemed colleagues, what an unfortunate series of events. it seems you have failed to fulfill your promise of loyalty to New London, to its people and more importantly… to me.”
The Mad Captain tightened his grip on their shoulders, a sinister glint in his eyes. "However, I have to admit my generosity sometimes exceeds my good sense. I shall grant you a chance to redeem yourselves. You see, there is a vital task that requires your attention – the improvement of the locomotive efficiency of the Silver Scot. You shall begin at once and work through the night and the holiday."
The engineers gulped as dread overcame them. Major Wilkins walked over to the automaton, peering up at the guards above, their rifles gleaming coldly in the light of the Generator. "Gentlemen, we’ll pass your drinks up shortly. You are to ensure that our respectable peers remain properly motivated during their labors. Understood?"
The engineers exchanged a resigned look, knowing they had no choice but to comply with the Major's orders as the militia stared on. As Dr. Harwood started to follow his colleagues to the city’s automaton, Major Wilkins stopped him with a firm grip on his arm. "Not you, Dr. Harwood. You have crossed no line, and your loyalty remains unblemished. In fact," he said, a warmth creeping into his voice, "I would like you to join me for a drink at the Swan & Plough. I find myself in need of some intelligent conversation."
Dr. Harwood hesitated, his eyes flicking to his departing friends, who looked back at him with fierce eyes accusing him of betrayal, a swirl of emotions washing over his face. Major Wilkins' smile widened, knowing that the young engineer was torn. "Come now, Dr. Harwood. One drink won't hurt, and we may even find ourselves discussing matters of great importance to the future of New London."
With that, Major Wilkins steered the reluctant Dr. Harwood towards the pub. The militia departed, eager to begin their house searches to find every calendar of the old world that now had to be replaced. As the snow continued to fall upon the city, a blanket of white grew thick upon the rooftops, and the citizens of New London reveled in their fleeting moment of respite, unaware of the trials and tribulations that still lay ahead of them.

2023.03.22 21:49 railroadspike25 Who Would Win?

Who do you think would win in these three one-on-one fights? The scenario is that it's in the training room, and things get a bit out of hand. I know it can be tough to determine power levels in this game because of a general lack of tangible feats, so this is based on known lore about them, plus just general vibes.
-Wendy vs Cinnabar: Crazy chainsaw lady versus disciplined shield woman. Does Wendy's unpredictability and aggression win out over Cinnabar's unflappable demeanor?
-Bai Yi vs Sumire: The two best sword users in the MBCC. One way or another, this will probably be over with before anyone else even realizes what happened. Does Bai Yi's superspeed win out over Sumire's ninja prowess?
Zoya vs Ninety-Nine: The two most aggressive women in all of DisCity, and probably the two best fighters in Minos. They're both basically unstoppable forces, but which one is more unstoppable?

2023.03.22 21:40 lunar_vesuvius_ was he abusive? please read all of it

this is kind of a hard post to make because 1. It's been almost a year since this guy and I have gone our separate ways, 2. I feel like a burden or a idiot for still bringing him up and 3. I'm scared that if he does up end being really that bad that it'll be hard for me to bear, especially cause I already have experienced abuse from my parents and that's hard enough in and of itself.
but anyway, here's the story, I'll try to make it as short as possible
so last march (tomorrow would actually make a full year) I met this guy at school, let's call him T, who I interacted with once before but forgot about. then T asked me my name, we exchanged numbers, etc. it felt nice but I didn't think much of it. literally that same day, he started talking about him and I being more than friends, which was weird but I didn't think much of it. he was giving me a bunch of compliments (like he said I had a nice voice, it was" beautiful, enchanting even")
anyway, fast forward a few weeks later, he tells me he has feelings for me and would like to kiss me. I'd never been kissed at that point in time but really wanted to kiss someone I trusted and have a kinda casual relationship in that realm (dating without ACTUAL dating basically) so I can have a nice teenage relationship without any real attachment. I told T ALL of this btw, he knew my intentions from the get go and said he was cool with it all. I also told him early on that I'm bisexual and he told me he didn't have an issue with that either (this'll be important later)
so we kissed, things were decent although he'd text me literally all the time and made it seem like I never texted him first, which was wrong, but whatever. then T expressed sexual attraction to me, which was reciprocated, but we didn't actually wanna go all the way. he joked about hitting/grabbing my ass and thighs. he touched my thigh once, I told him not to do that as it makes me uncomfortable, but he kept doing it/joking about doing it (even though he knew about my past sexual abuse), and I literally had to YELL at him to get to stop, which wounded his little ego a bit. things between us seemed to be moving/progressing very fast
not to mention that even though I would always tell him I didn't harbor the same strong romantic feelings for him that he did for me, T would always ask me "oh do you like me? do you have a physical attraction to me??" and I said no. I thought maybe one day I would or could, but at that point in time I wanted our relationship to stay right where it was. then one day T made some type of joke in our messages along the lines of "sorry, sometimes I just get so horny I can't control myself" after telling me about a particular fantasy of holding my leg up while kissing me. I told him to respect my boundaries or else he'd be sorry.
T said he will respect and understands, but literally the next fucking day got all sad and had an attitude saying what I said hurt his feelings and confused him since we "talk about sex all the time" he mentioned something about wanting to self harm in relation to what I messaged him. I don't remember if he was implying that I made him want to self harm, but it was weird. Told him his message reminded me of those guys who grab a girl's ass nonconsenually and justify it with "sorry can't help myself." T laughed and said "haha sounds like me when I was in 7th grade". he was in 9th grade at the time of saying that
last thing was finding out he's homophobic. told me out of no where that men shouldn't be with men and women should not be with women. it's gross, unnatural, goes against his religion. T claims to not be homophobic, as he doesn't hate queer people, but just doesn't "agree with them/the lifestyle". And says he didn't care that I was bi, yet obviously has shitty opinions about ppl like me? I confronted him on this ofc and I got defensive, he called me a skunt 3 times (basically some caribbean term meaning a bitch or cunt), which he knew I was uncomfortable with, told me I "clearly can't control my emotions" and that I'm "talking out the side of my neck" (talking nonsense/crazy basically)
we got into a huge argument about that, I was like "yeah fuck this guy", blocked his insta, number, etc. I missed him for a while and would even make up dumb excuses to talk to him, but not anymore. I still think about T from time to time as we still go to school together and see that asshole everyday, but I don't wanna be his friend anymore. I have resentment and pain from him, especially given past trauma, but since he doesn't wanna apologize or admit to anything, I gotta move on.. whatever we had going on only lasted like a month or so..
so was T a gaslighteemotional abuser and unwanted touching/seuxally coercing me like this lady on a mental health hotline said he was? or am I just crazy? I talked to a school counselor about this and she said he wasn't abusive cause if it was he'd have been doing it everyday, all the time, etc. what he did was hurtful and I'm not stupid for feeling that way, but we're just uncompatiable according to her. then again that counselor is kind of a bitch lol

2023.03.22 21:31 JewelerMinimum6418 IF YOU TAP YOU WILL CUM




This story continues on directly after my previous story, Two Fridays – Part 1.

In the morning I woke up, and wondered if it had all been a dream. My come-stained shirt, lying in the corner near the head of my bed, where I had tossed it before getting in, showed one thing- the part about wanking myself was certainly true, but what about the rest? I showered and put on fresh clothes for the day, and a short time later, Tina came to join me at breakfast, straight from her bed, and wearing her nightie and brunch coat.

Although as usual, we talked and chattered over breakfast, Tina said nothing about last night, which suggested to me that maybe I just dreamt it, but it all seemed so real. Then, if it was real, and Tina showed no sign it ever happened, that probably meant she was ashamed, and it certainly meant it wasn’t going to happen again. I thought it was best not to bring the subject up, unless Tina did it first.

I noticed that, straight after breakfast, and before she even had a shower, Tina stripped her bed and took her sheets to the laundry, putting them straight in the washing machine, but even that wasn’t unusual for her. Our mother was still having her Saturday morning sleep-in, and as Tina walked from the laundry, our eyes met, but she said nothing out of the ordinary.

The entire weekend went by, with no hint of anything from Tina, but a couple of times when her door was shut, I had to wonder if she was in there, touching herself like she had done for me, pleasuring herself the way she had done on Friday night, and my throat would go dry, and that familiar need to take matters in hand would make itself known. I masturbated twice that Sunday without using a porn magazine for inspiration, just re-running the events of Friday night in my head.

Monday, of course, was a school day, and after school, Tina and I caught the same bus home as usual, but when we got off at our stop, I saw Tina walking with Katy in the direction of Katy’s house. I went home and changed into some shorts and a casual shirt, did a little half-hearted work on a school assignment due later in the week, and then watched some TV.

Tina came in the back door, about an hour after I got home, still in her school uniform, and as soon as she walked into the family room, she said, “Look at this.” She reached into her school backpack, took out a DVD case, and handed it to me. I could see straight away it was a porn movie, and the title on the front was Heatwave at Station 69. There was a picture on the front, of a busty, bare-breasted blonde girl, wearing an open fireman’s jacket over stockings, suspenders and white lace panties, and holding the metal end of a firehose, the way a girl would hold a man’s cock when she was giving him a hand job. I turned it over and on the back there were some stills from the movie, and it said, Things heat up all over when a charm school for young ladies opens up next door to a Louisiana fire station. Polish your helmet and you can come, too. Let’s all go for a ride-along with these good old boys and their southern belles

“Where’d you get that?” I said, handing it back to Tina. I couldn’t help smiling.

“Katy,” she answered, cheerfully, “She was snooping around in her father’s bedside table and found it in the drawer with some other ones. She didn’t think he’d notice if she borrowed one for a few days.”

“What are you gonna do with it?” I asked, chuckling.

“Watch it, Dickhead. What do you normally do with movies?” Tina smiled, “When Mum’s not home, of course.” She took the DVD, and went to her room, and came out a few minutes later with some jeans and a pink top on, and watched TV with me until our mother came home from work.

The week went by, and almost before I knew it, Friday night came around again. I forgot all about the porn DVD, and as usual on a Friday night, after cooking us our dinner, our mother got dolled up and left in a taxi to go and meet her unofficial boyfriend, Steve. I don’t know why, but for some reason, although she had him over a few times, and he got on okay with Tina and me, she never let him stay the night, and didn’t like anyone referring to him as her boyfriend. Women can be strange sometimes.

Tina was wearing a short skirt, made of white denim, and a cream coloured top, with short sleeves and a square neckline that showed some of her modest cleavage, and her hair was in its usual ponytail. We sat and watched some comedy shows on TV, and then after they ended, I looked at the TV guide, to see if there was anything worth watching. One channel had a rerun of Dirty Dancing, but I’d seen that at least half a dozen times, and there was nothing interesting on any of the other channels.

Tina came in from the kitchen and said, “What’s on?”

“Crap,” I said, “Dirty Dancing is on but not much else.”

“Patrick Swayze’s a hunk, but I’ve seen it so many times I can practically recite the script,” Tina said, without much interest. She sat on the couch next to me, and said, “Hey, let’s watch that dirty movie.” She was smiling, a little mischievously.

“Okay,” I smiled. I’d forgotten about it, but Tina got up and went down the hall to her room, and came back a minute later. When she bent to put the DVD in the player, I caught a glimpse of pink cotton panties under her short skirt.

She came to the couch, kicked off her sandals, and sat next to me. Like any guy my age, I had seen a few porn DVD’s, but to be honest, I had never watched one right through, because I usually got so horny I had to wank myself before it was over. This one went for forty minutes, and like most dirty movies, it showed people fucking missionary style, doggy style, cowgirl, there were pussies licked, cocks sucked, even a lesbian threesome with two female firefighters, and a girl from the charm school. As usual, the flimsy plot was only there to link a series of sex scenes together, but it was a pretty arousing movie.

A few times, I looked over at Tina, and her eyes were glued to the movie, and if it was making me horny, I wondered about how it was affecting her. She had not said a word all week about last Friday night, but I still wondered about that, too. I didn’t know how many dirty movies Tina had seen, but I doubt if this was her first.

During the movie, there was one scene where a fireman named Johnny Hardacre had arrived for work in his old pickup, and the principal of the charm school, a voluptuous redhead called Miss Vee, was waiting for him outside the fire station. She was wearing a big, floppy sunhat, and she said, “Mister Hardacre, I’ve been waitin’ for you.” The fireman slammed the pickup door, and strode over to her, kissing her, hot and hard on the mouth, and when they broke their kiss, Miss Vee had said, “Why don’t y’all come next door for a while, Mister Hard-acre? I got a li’l ol’ fire burnin’ inside, that needs some of yo’ ex-pert attention.”

The two characters had kissed passionately, with lots of tongue, and plenty of mouth exploration, and had then gone next door, leading to a hot sex scene in Miss Vee’s living quarters, where Mister Hardacre had licked Miss Vee’s pussy, she had sucked his cock, and they had fucked missionary, legs over the shoulder, and then doggy style. Mister Hardacre had finished up by coming on her back, and his cock was massive. There were plenty of close-ups of the action, not just in this scene, but right through the entire move, and seeing those pussies being licked, especially in the lesbian scenes, had its effect on me.

After the movie, Tina got up as the credits rolled, and walked down the hallway towards our mother’s bedroom. I was taking the DVD out of the player when she came back in the room, wearing a big, floppy sunhat that belonged to our mother, and it was very similar to the one that Miss Vee was wearing in the movie.

Tina stood at the doorway, in her short, white skirt, and cream top, with that floppy sunhat on her head, and standing in the same provocative way that Miss Vee had done in the movie, she said, “Mister Hardacre, I’ve been waitin’ for you.” She even nailed the southern accent.

I stood at the TV stand, and chuckled, and Tina said, “You be Johnny Hardacre, and I’ll be Miss Vee.” I stood there, looking at her, and she said, “Come on. Kiss me like he did in the movie.”

I said, “Well, he slams the door, and …,” then I strode over to Tina, taking hold of her like Johnny Hardacre had taken hold of Miss Vee in the movie, and I kissed her, trying to do it like the fireman had kissed Miss Vee. Naturally, I felt a wave of excitement going through me as I kissed my sister’s soft mouth, gently exploring hers with the tip of my tongue.

When we broke our kiss, Tina recited Miss Vee’s next line, “Why don’t y’all come next door for a while, Mister Hard-acre? I got a li’l ol’ fire burnin’ inside, that needs some of yo’ ex-pert attention.” Once again, she took off the southern accent perfectly, but when I recited Mister Hardacre’s line, to the best of my memory, I didn’t try to do the accent myself. We kissed a little more, as per the movie, but gradually we got out of character, until we were just kissing each other’s mouths for the pleasure it was giving us, holding each other close, kissing in a hot and sexual way, like lovers.

We had a break for air, and Tina moved back towards the couch, and sat down, tossing the sunhat over the back onto the floor. I sat next to her on her right, and she moved close to me, and put her right arm across my shoulders. She moistened her lips, and kissed me again, a soft and sexy kiss, but a fairly quick one. Then, with our faces close, she said, in a soft voice, “That was a sexy movie, wasn’t it?”

I sighed, and said, “Yeah.”

“Do you get excited when you watch movies like that?” Tina asked, still speaking softly. Her face was close enough to mine for me to feel her warm breath.

January 3, 2023
WWS Ground Zero
All State Arena, Rosemont, Illnois
The show kicks off with William Regal inside the ring, he gets a huge reaction from the crowd. He grabs a microphone and says, “This is WAR. It is a time of WAR. Nothing in this world is fair. You cannot be spoonfed anything, not under my watch. You need to prove yourself worthy. Don't be afraid to get your hands dirty because fear has no place under my watch. Prove it to me that you have it in you. In my watch this is going to be THE place for premier professional wrestling and you can take my word for it. ”
Regal then announces tournaments for the WWS Intercontinental, Tag Team and World Women’s Championships.
A six man round robin cup for the Intercontinental Championship which is named the Scott Hall Memorial Tournament.

Brackets for it are as follows Toni Storm vs Deonna Purrazzo Charlotte Flair vs Athena Rhea Ripley vs Jordynne Grace Alexa Bliss vs Io Shirai
He leaves as the crowd cheer and we cut to our commentators Mauro Ronallo and Nigel McGuinnes giving a rundown of the card later tonight.
It’s for the first ever match in WWS history, it’s Chris Danger making his debut against Trey Miguel.
Chris Danger vs Trey Miguel
(They approach each other for a collar and elbow tie up but Miguel quickly gets the better of the much inexperienced Danger as he puts him away with a german suplex. Danger gets back up and charges for a clothesline only to be ducked and hit by an enziguri by Miguel. Danger is perched on the ropes as Miguel goes for a clothesline but Danger reverses it and hits a backbody drop as Miguel lands on the outside hard on his back. Danger gets on the apron and hits a springboard moonsault to Miguel on the outside.
Danger sends him back in and as he rushes Miguel hits an elbow and looks for a superkick, Danger dodges and hits him with a V-Trigger. Miguel is staggered as danger runs the ropes and hits another V-Trigger. Danger goes into the corner to tune up the band for the superkick but Miguel ducks and catches him with a cutter.

Roman Reigns' theme plays as the entire Bloodline walks out with Paul Heyman. Roman, Jimmy, Jey and Solo, the personification of being in god mode. Heyman takes the mic, “Ladies and Gentlemen, My name is Paul Heyman and I am the Special Counsel for the most premier wrestling family that has ever existed. You are looking at peak specimens at the top of their game, physically and mentally. You are looking at Solo Sikoa, (points at Solo) the most exciting prospect this business has seen in years and a future face of the company. You are looking at Jimmy and Jey, the first tag team champions of WWS, they are the most prolific tag team in the business right now and they have no signs of stopping and finally you, ladies and gentlemen are looking at Roman Reigns. The biggest box office draw in professional wrestling. He is the head of the table, he is OUR Tribal Chief and he is going to be the first WWS World Heavyweight Champion, mark my words, not a prediction, it’s a spoiler. The Bloodline is here to conquer the pro wrestling landscape, which is something they have been molded by the elders to do since the very inception of their lives and they will not budge from the top because that’s where they belong.”
Roman takes the mic, “People, I’m here. I’m not here to impress anyone, I’m here to do what I do best, put butts in seats, sell t-shirts and rule what is rightfully, MY KINGDOM. I am not just the face of the WWS, I am the WWS. There are no sell out arenas without me, there is no publicity, no prime time television spot without me and all I want for giving everything to this business is for you to ACKNOWLEDGE ME”
Roman drops the mic and spreads his arms, looks up and closes his eyes just when
Swerve in Our Glory is here at the WWS
Keith Lee and Swerve Strickland, Swerve in Our Glory, the Usos’ opponents in the first round of the World Tag Team Eliminator.
Swerve says, “Look Roman, we respect you,we get it you’re a draw but that doesn’t mean all of us busting our asses day in, day out are worthless. You are not the WWS, all of us, everyone in the back, we make the WWS and let’s set the record straight, Paulie, they are not going to be the next tag team champions, hell they won’t even go past Round One.”
Some more back and forth starts and Roman makes a reference to Keith Lee’s illness and they both charge the ring and a brawl starts. Solo and Swerve fight, while Lee takes on the Usos. Solo hits Swerve with the Samoan Spike outside. Lee in the ring hits Jey with the Big Bang Catastrophe as he rolls out to Solo. Keith then grabs Jimmy and throws him outside onto Solo and Jey. As Keith taunts and the crowd cheers, he turns and runs straight into a spear from Roman Reigns. Reigns leaves with Heyman as William Regal comes out to make a match, It’s Keith Lee vs Jey Uso.

A vignette airs with Karrion Kross in a dungeon punching a punching bag while Scarlett does a voiceover where she narrates the story of the herald of doom and the last line is, “When the clock hits zenith, everyone will feel the WRATH of Kross.”
We cut back from the commercial to see Edge cutting a promo ahead of his match with John Cena.
"Now if this was any other show, I would say you just saw the best of me and I'm in the best shape of my career but that's not the case clearly. I'll be 50 soon. Seeing that look on my daughters' faces made me realize something. Wrestling is a drug and I'm a junkie and this thirst for the business will leave me crippled one day but I won't let that happen to my girls.
I know that I do not have enough time left in the ring, so now let me make myself clear. I've had enough fooling around but that's it! I'm about to do what I said I will when I came back three years ago. I WILL END MY CAREER ON MY TERMS! and the only place a career like mine deserves to end is right at the top. So anyone who comes between me and the world title is going to face the worst in me."
"Wrestling has more than one Royal Family"

We see footage of William Regal’s office from earlier where he is sitting but is interrupted by Grayson Waller. He says that he could forgive him for not including him for the World Title Tournament but not putting him in the Intercontinental title tournament is plain disrespectful for the next face of the company. Regal berates him and then says that Grayson is talented though a little delusional and that’s not all the belts as he then announces a fatal four way ladder match for the WWS Television Championship at Genesis. The first qualifying match does indeed feature Grayson Waller and it is tonight.
We cut back from the footage to see Waller already in the ring with the mic in his hand. He says that though he feels disrespected for being put in contention for the WWS Television Championship, he gets where management is coming from. They need an exceptional talent to put the new title on the map and Waller promises to make it even bigger than the World Championship and he also feels sorry for whoever his opponent is for their wretched luck. As he says this the guitar hits
'With your feet in the air and head on the ground....'

2023.03.22 21:00 worthless_Engineer Finished MoI

Man, I absolutely loved the ride. I’ve never read anything like these books. It’s insane the amount of plot threads and character arcs that we are keeping up with. I’ll be wondering what one thing meant and trying to keep it in my mind, only to be distracted by 5 other hints that are completely unrelated until I can’t hardly keep my eye out for anything coming! Erikson is a master at keeping me engaged and constantly speculating where he is going with things. And then when things resolve or click into understanding, it’s always better than what I had anticipated! Or it’s more heartbreaking or whatever he’s going for, it always lands or surprises me. I mentioned in another post that this book brought back that curiosity and wonderment that I had towards the series after finished GotM. I do not know why I didn’t like Deadhouse Gates. It took me a while to get through and I couldn’t rouse a lot of interest for many of the plots. Hopefully I’ll complete a re-read one day and have a completely different experience. It could be that I was simply attached to the GotM characters and didn’t find their replacements as compelling.
I really, really enjoyed Memories of Ice. I can’t imagine trying to write anything comprehensive about my reaction to the plot as a whole, so I’ll just share a few things that stuck out to me before moving to character discussion and the things I’m left pondering.
Tennescowri- These jokers are truly horrifying. One scene that sticks with me is Anaster pointing at the intruders led by Lady Envy, and the Tennescowri just lose their minds. Some of the things we saw or heard about through Toc’s perspective were truly awful. Ugh, I could have done without the dead seed explanation and then witnessing it in Capustan. Just revolting haha. I loved how Erikson milked them for all that they were worth though. Recruits for the Grey Swords, a mostly empty vessel for Toc to take over in Anaster, a deeper understanding of Rake as executioner through WhiskeyJack’s shared experience, and really just the context for how bad things can get for people in this series. Erikson really earns all of his big moment quotes and moments of philosophy by taking us through horrors all along the way.
The Grey Swords- This whole group slowly grew on me without me even realizing until I was really disappointed by their demise. I guess I’m glad Erikson didn’t save them all as the whole point was they were totally screwed in Capustan. But I went from thinking I wouldn’t be that interested in them to wishing more would have survived. I do have a lingering gripe on them which I’ll share in a bit. I came to really like all their formality in a weird way. I am glad that it will be continued on. I think it’s going to be funny seeing Toc deal with that level of stiffness as he is already seemingly more comfortable in Gruntle’s company.
I loved all the stuff with the Malazan/Brood/Tiste Andii Alliance. I can’t say as I understood everyone’s motivations, but the Malazans are becoming more transparent. I wonder what Laseen has planned for the Crippled God, as that does not seem to be her main focus at the moment. Unfortunately, I’m seeing more of the differences between Dujek and Whiskeyjack. I’m worried how interested I’ll be in the Malazan stuff now that Whiskeyjack is dead and the bridgeburners are decimated. I thought I liked Dujek from GotM, but he sank like a rock in my eyes and I currently don’t care what happens to him.
It’s worth mentioning that I am increasingly picking up on the humor in these books and really enjoying it. What little we’ve seen of the Mott Irregulars, they are hilarious to me. Of course my boy Kruppe constantly makes me laugh, and the stuff with him and Hetan was great. I also found this company of Bridgeburners to be pretty funny.
Favorite Characters:
1) Toc- I think he may be my favorite in the series at this moment. It’d be a tough call between him and Fiddler. What a brutal arc he went through in this book. I was surprised but happy to see that he has seemingly maintained some of his mischievousness even after all the torture he endured. I’m sure that’s going to change him a lot moving forward, but it was a nice ending to see him be himself with Gruntle and his new position.
2) Tool- I love this dude. I love how a throw away comment from Toc calling him friend touched something down deep in his bones. Loved the interactions between him and the Seguleh. And of course him coming to save his brother at the end was wonderful. The line about him destroying the torture chamber in a fit of rage was just brilliant. Tool, in a rage???? Love it. I’m curious what is next for our now barghast looking boy, after he tends to Hetan of course.
3) Kruppe- I still think he’s awesome. Haha. I think it’s Itkovian who notices K’rul looking at him all proud kind of like a prodigy, but something more than just that. I like the idea that an Elder God interested in saving the world would ally themselves with one of the world’s foremost geniuses. It was nice that Whiskeyjack was one of the first to notice Kruppe’s influence on everything. His intellect and abilities aside, I personally find his attitude and the jovial way he rambles to be such a breath of fresh air from all the tense, stiff, or tortured characters that pretty well make up the rest of the cast.
4) Itkovian- He shot up to one of my favorite characters after the fall of Capustan. I loved his ability to see straight to the heart of things. What a guy for what he did for those souls in Capustan and then taking the pain of the Tlan Imass. I was beginning to enjoy his friendship with Gruntle too. It’s a shame he won’t be around anymore. Surely this is a death that stays a death. This series is beginning to make me wonder about all of them.
5) Whiskeyjack- Finally got to understand more of why he is held in such high regard. He is another who quickly sees to the heart of things. I loved how he had the ability to forge a friendship with Rake so quickly and loved that he stirred Korlat to life as well. I think the sequence that sticks out the most for me is when he executes the Tenescowri witches while they’re stunned and gets a peek into Rake’s psyche.
6) Rake- I’m not fully understanding why he isn’t more front and center in this book, but I still love it when he’s around. The thought of him stumbling onto the Seguleh’s island and becoming the seventh accidentally is hilarious. I hope we get a reunion with him and some Seguleh.
7) K’rul- I find him super interesting. I love how he’s trying to put together resistance to the crippled god and that Kruppe is one of his main allies.
8) Quick Ben- What a mystery he continues to be. I love how he gives himself a minute to gloat any time he does anything particularly smart or powerful. His scene at the end over Whiskeyjack’s cask was pretty moving.
9) Paran- It seems like he is finally finding his feet and becoming more his own man and less tortured youth. He continues to stumble his way through everything, but he is getting more confident with the Master of the Deck stuff. He surprised Quick Ben the last time he went doggo to face off against Kilava. So I’m curious where that leads. I have a sneaky suspicion that Paran will be my favorite character in the end, once he masters his powers. If he survives that long, lol.
Remaining Questions/Thoughts:
Hope you guys enjoy the post. I have enjoyed being a part of this community. So far it's the only one I've posted in as I'm more of a lurker by nature. Thanks in advance for your input.

2023.03.22 19:53 ShadooYT I wish overwatch had supports similar to Paladins

In overwatch, i (used to) despise support. i didnt like pretty much all of them and i would choose tank (whoah!!) over support 99% of the time. it is much better now (in OW2) but still not even close to paladins level IMP.
At the same time of despising OW supp, i was a complete support main in Paladins. i absolutely love playing most of them and they are just awesome. For anyone who played a fair amt of paladins, I was a Skye main but I tried Ying and she was a gateway drug for supports. i still am a ying main, but almost all of the others are fun to play and rewarding as well.
Now, yes, i know paladins is significantly worse when it comes to balancing (for ex, a support having grav thats like 3x the size (seris)) and that is definitely a factor, but I just wish overwatch was better when it came to supports.
here are my opinions on ow supps
Mercy is a joke, lame asl to play and playing against her is painful. love the dickriding she does to the 1 ranged dps that makes rhem nearly impossible to kill.
Lucios cool, requires a lot of team communication to be utilized the most but thats not a bad thing (maybe at lower ranks) but I think hes dope.
Bap is valid, i dont think hes very fun but hes a solid supp, plus lamp is ridiculous (why tf they buff that shit💀)
Ana is awesome, i actually like playing her a lot and theres sm stuff u can do with her util.
I also love moira, ik unpopular opinion but i like her split of dps and supp.
zen is dope but i feel like his heals are too low, dps is too high, and his ult is crazy.
kirikos great, but playing against her is pretty frustrating since she has an instant counter to everything in the game. i think she has practically no cons. no hitbox, great mobility, good dps (if u can aim) etc.
brig is cool but i personally dont like playing her at all. i also kinda suck with her tho lmao.
But yeah, i just wish overwatch had supports similar to paladins. one of the only things paladins has over overwatch in my opinion.
TLDR: paladins support = cool fun rewarding, overwatch support = some cool fun rewarding, some lame and rewarding

2023.03.22 19:20 dlPeter I Guilt Tripped Someone Into Doing Something They Weren't Comfortable In Doing

This happened around 2013....
So essentially I was helping someone through their depression. I'd go with them to the doctor to get their medications etc. We'd talk on the phone for almost ever 4 hours a day. She always wanted someone to talk to and I obliged. This was going on for 14 months.
Eventually she started feeling better, I remember being happy for her and so forth and she was like...."Oh! Guess What I have a boyfriend!!" I was like...."Ummm okay that was quick" So she was like..."Don't worry, he's someone who I know in my neighborhood" So I was like...."Oh....okay" I trying to act cool and all. I expressed my concerned that since she was under a sheet of sickness I mean she was losing weight, suicidal, having chess pains, constant vomiting whenever she ate. Yeah she was in a real bad shape.
Anyways so later on in the month she was like. Hey! I showed him some explicit photos of myself. So I was like...."Woah.....okay." So I told her I wanted to see as well and she was like......"I don't know it wouldn't be right....he's my boyfriend and all.
So I decided to act like a jerk (not something I'm proud of) and went like this... Considering the amount of time I spend with you on the phone off the phone when no one wanted to talk to you cause everyone thought you were crazy. I was the only one who was hanging out with you for months on end. Trying to reassure you that you're not crazy, that you're worth it. I never once tried to take advantage of you cause I already knew what I was signing up myself for. I know that this wasn't gonna be a holiday. I had to be there for you when you were crying.....shaking...suicidal. I had to remind you that your parents still love you and all. I stayed up all night talking to you till my parents wondered why this selfish young lady won't stop calling me and let me sleep and I had defend you. Now you're calling this fellow your boyfriend who never went through half the stuff I went through? Then showing him your explicit photos? Why? How did he earn any of those privilege? I demand some form of payment! (Of course I never really wanted anything from her but the moment I heard what her bf was getting, I was like...."Hell no!!!!!"
Needless to say she felt guilty and showed me those photos. Oddly enough I thought I would have felt a hard on in seeing those photos but honestly I just felt more disgusted. I was no different from her boyfriend. I never expressed this to anyone. I attempted to express a piece of it to my mother and she almost bit my head off haha.
So yeah that's what happened. The day I acted like an entitled jerk. I remember deleting those photos right after that.

2023.03.22 18:18 jared_landryy The Devil’s in the Details: A Template to Paradise

State of Play

I use to have a bay window. Back when I was six years old I lived in a small three bedroom, one bath house and it had this bay window that was sort of the forefront of the home. That section was where I’d play with my action figures. That section was where I guess you could say made the world that I was living in currently, bigger, larger than my own self. My imagination was at its high when posted up at that bay window. If you ask anyone who really seen me in action over at the bay window, they would tell you it seemed like I was invincible.
As much as I’m not really here to talk about bay windows and little coming-of-age homes, I’m just as equally here to tell you how much it plays apart in what I am here to talk about, and that’s the state of play. I recently wrote on my Facebook page on how it’s important to let kids be kids, be silly in a sense. It’s important to let their minds flourish with the most outlandish ideas in my opinion. That thought, has awarded me the opportunity to think like I do today. The opportunity to choose how I would like to process ideas and drive my emotions into certain directions and in result, be my own person. What does this have to do with the Paradise video? Everything.
I’ve lost touch. Wait, correction. I’ve been in and out of touch with the “state of play” idea. Life, more specifically adulthood sort of takes over and puts you in the position of immediate choices. Some people don’t grow straight with that sort of responsibility or, again, more specifically, the immediate choices, the “state of urgency” I’ll call it. I, me, ironically grew comfortable with the “state of urgency”. I’m good under pressure, focused and able to drown out noise. The “state of play” idea may seem to be the contrast to the “state of urgency” but the more I thought about it for this piece, I thought how similar they really are, or how they really complement each other. The eureka moment being that in the “state of play” mindset, you are in the moment of “state of urgency” because whatever is that task at hand while submissive to that “state of play” world, is most definitely urgent. Adulthood just makes you forget how similar they are. Think about Peter Pan and the Lost boys. I’m not going to dive too deep into that rabbit hole but you can sort of see where I’m going with all of this. Don’t grow up or DO IN FACT grow up because growing up is the only way you’ll find the similarities. Next.

Fly on the Wall

I crack open a beer in a low light setting painted in hues of purple and dust. I can’t speak on the bands psychological state but I can speak on what I see and what I see is growth. Something growing right before your eyes may seem like watching paint dry but, have you ever watched paint dry? It’s beautiful. What’s even more astounding is having the patience to watch something grow. I’m a father of two so I know what I’m talking about. The low light setting sends a guitar chord into existence, meaning, this is all real now. Another lesson I’ve learned while being this “fly on the wall” during a jam session is that nothing is real until you’ve played it. Once that thought became a stamp onto my brain, I thought about the chords I might play in life. I have plenty of streaming thoughts, ideas flowing into the nothingness that become the nothingness, a sea of nothingness. The jam session helps me realize how persistent these guys make ideas real. A strum on the guitar then a cord on the bass becomes a sonnet worth acknowledging, remember, In this world, in this “state of play”, IS, the “state of urgency”. The urgency makes it real right. It raises the question as I crack another Juicifur, in which if you have ever looked at the can of a Juicifur beer, it can send you into a world of possibilities while in that “state of play” mindset. The question being, how urgent are my ideas? Are they as urgent as these guitar strums, bass plucks? Purple dust, I take a sip and its fucking deep. We’re in it now boys I say to myself as NOW they’re laying down the foundation of something bigger than any of us in this room. “That section was where I guess you could say made the world that I was living in currently, bigger, larger than my own self” referrer back to paragraph one.
Flying Coach is their name, was their name, maybe still maybe THEIR name. I can’t say at this moment because I’m not them. What I’ve witnessed though is Flying Coach in my opinion. I’ve listen to their first album The Flying Five Family Funtime and comparing that to me being the “fly on the wall” during the jam session was all too familiar. So for the sake of this essay, they’re fucking Flying Coach. I hear the seat belt buckle tone go off and I’m prepared to ascend into what I’ve been calling the “state of play”. Listening to them jam out was only the slap in the face moment, “wake up”. I woke and from my slumber came the realization of adulthood and its way of saying, “I want to play”.

Fuckable Foundation

As I bleed the words out now, writing this, that’s the same effect I had when coming up with idea for the Paradise video. Talking Paradise though, I referred back to their album. Why Paradise? It’s simple. That’s my favorite song. Selfish as that may seem, in questioning the option to giving THEM the choice of what song should be made into a video I only referred back to the jam session that night. Low light levels and hues of purple dust you tend to become one of them in a sense. I trusted them to take me on a journey into the unknown and they did. Ultimately, I came out the other end KNOWING. As you’ve just read, KNOWING, everything up to this period (.) I wanted to pay it back in a way and do the same as they did for me. So I bleed. First reference for you, “I Bleed” by the Pixies from their 1989 album Doolittle, I played that song as typed up a five page essay on the “state of play” and it’s comparison to “the state of urgency” and youth and adulthood and fucking flies on walls, NOT actually “fucking” but fuck man i would say love was in the air at that moment and everywhere I look around it just got even more intimate. Making love to the essay I wrote led me to the birth of concept. As confusing as that may sound in terms of the actual human reproductive process, sex being conceiving, the act of creating, my process I guess, was that the essay I wrote was only foreplay.
So now I need to actually fuck. My belt is coming off to Drew Barrymore**. Second reference, I watched her opening performance to** the 1996 film Scream and I knew I wanted this to be the foundation to the video. A girl running up the stairs when she should be running out of the house, in which she did but that’s not the point. The whole idea being a “slasher film” type video. Blowing my load to this idea alone though, wouldn’t be all that intimate I thought. I didn’t want a one-night-stand type of idea. I want this idea to stick around for a while, I wanted it to know that I appreciated it. The sex had to have landmarks not pop-up shops. I referred back to my five page essay on the “state of play” and noticed the phrase I wrote in it, “He who dies with the most toys, wins”. It’s a quote by Malcolm Forbs, famous publisher of Forbs magazine. I referenced that quote in the essay because I seen it on a t-shirt once. As the sex became deeper that quote become prominent to the idea. “Toys”, being the idea of a slasher type of scene made up of toys. So instead of a live action video, it would be me playing with a bunch of toys in the world of Wes Craven’s 1996 film Scream, THUS my fuckable foundation.

Mad Scientist Soundtrack

“We all go a little mad sometimes” the character Billy Loomis says, played by the actor Skeet Ulrich referencing to what Norman Bates, played by Anthony Perkins says in the 1960 film Psycho. “we all go a little mad sometimes” I heard while thinking about this idea as a whole. It’s mad, but it’s ALIVE and if I were a mad scientist creating my monster I’d have to step away from the sound of “Paradise” By Flying Coach. If I wanted this thing to have a tone, a feeling, I wouldn’t find it in that song. This is for the betterment of the song though. Too many music videos these days cater to the material almost TOO literal. Maybe that has something to do with the new age viewer and their lack of attention and/or short term attention but that’s a whole other issue to talk about. I’ll address it by finding a contrasting sound to Paradise, something that sounds NOT paradise. I thought about that HBO show “The White Lotus” and its opening theme song, it’s soundtrack in general actually. I related to that in terms of “NOT paradise”. I thought about how the composer to that show may have had that same exact idea**. Reference three, Cristobal Tapia de Veer, the composer to** the White Lotus soundtrack. I listened to his music while figuring out how I wanted this video to sound. Again, on mute, this video is “NOT Paradise”. A mad scientist creating his monster would definitely be listing to Cristobal Tapia de Veer’s sound. I went mad to this.
Is this too rough? Am I hurting you? I thought about how acts of passion may bring out the worst of us. Fucking to a song called, “She who brings the gifts” really put that idea into motion. I honestly don’t know what lead me to thinking of the 2018 film Hereditary but it makes sense. I had to cling to this idea of passion bringing out the worst in someone but also stick to the innocence of childhood, “toys” for the sake of the video. How would this be visually represented? Reference four, Ari Aster, writedirector of the 2018 film Hereditary did it best when opening his film up to a doll house, A slow zoom into this idea of dooming passion. The part that made sense was my idea revolving around toys. A doll house would be a perfect fitting for the aesthetic. The whole thing would take place inside a doll house while the camera witnessed the story unfold.

Bird for Hire and “The Shape”

Scenes of a murder while hearing the tone of de Veer’s compositions all wrapped up in this “state of play” doll house setting was my targeted vision. At this point yes, I am going a little mad. It’s a wild and crazy idea but it’s so fucking passionate that it’s NOW a “landmark idea”. What makes it personal though? What makes it personal to the band? I have all sorts of blood in this thing it’s almost Hereditary. How can I let the band have some of their DNA be a part of this monster? Cum a little closer… They have a huge bird, on their album cover. As big as the idea seems to be for the sake of the cover art, I believe that that bird represents their most intimate image. My interpretation is that, in the world of Flying Coach, small things have big impacts, like the possibility a plane carrying 244 sols on board going down because of a small bird getting sucked into its engine system cause complete catastrophe. That’s what their cover art says to me. How can I relate that idea into the video? Who’s the plane in my video? Well obviously it’s the victim, the girl running up the stairs when she should be running out the house. Who’s the bird? At first I thought maybe the masked killer was the bird but then I thought why can’t the “bird” be the bird. To make my idea even more unique and mad, I thought about the killer just having a bird as his weapon of choice instead of the conventional knife, ax, chainsaw like you see in slasher films. This leads me to be drawn into who this masked killer really is.
I thought how I would never want Scooby Doo to solve this case. The masked killer is just a masked killer. He is who he is and nothing more. This brings me to “The shape”. If you’re a movie/film enthusiast like I am then you would have watch tons of “making of” “behind the scenes” docs like I have. Reference five, Halloween/Friday the 13th. In John Carpenters 1978 film Halloween, the mask that Michael Myers wears is actually a Captain Kirk mask, more specifically a William Shatner mask painted white with the eyes cut out. I wanted this idea and in vain of the original concept, instead of Captain Kirk, I chose Spock, Kirks right hand man in Star Trek. I chose to have my “shape” masked killer be a Spock figurine with the face painted blue. Blue being catchy on the eyes, with the eyes cut out. His persona would pair in the likes of Myers and Voorhees in the sense that they’re just them and nothing more, no mystery behind them. I also refer “it/him” to “them” because in the video you can come to an idea maybe that there is more than one. I like to leave that thought up to the viewer.

AI just figured it out

A gangbang of “Shapes” didn’t quite bring me to the point of edging though. I pretty much had the video in my head at this point and time was ticking to start putting pen to pad. I needed to have something “in the can” as Hollywood calls it. As ambitious as this idea started to form it was nearly impossible for me to execute without some sort of short cut. Midjourney came knocking on the doll house door like The Wolf from the 1994 film Pulp Fiction. Midjourney is an AI (Artificial Intelligence) art program that recently hit the web within the last past year. I won’t get into too much detail on how it works because they have numerous videos out there explaining the technology and its conception. The idea of me using this new technology as a tool to create the video was to me, a step above anyone else making ANYTHING today. Once I decided on using this as a tool, I felt like I was breaking new ground for the filmmaking world as a whole. I can hold the spirit stick of “it has never been done before” with this new idea and how I was to execute it. I think that’s what really separates this video from the norm. Take out all the sport fuck, meaning, all the bullshit, meaning, all the intricate backstory shit you’ve been reading up to this point. Take out all of that, and you still have something truly unique with the Paradise video.
“Make video horizontal again” I read on a hat as I was scrolling through Instagram advisements. I thought about how it’s so true. How we now live in a vertical world of viewing. It’s sort of strange also as to that’s how we decide to chew on content. The evolution process has had us go from monkeys to vertical video viewers. We didn’t gain an extra eye, we just skewed what the eyes should be looking at. In the thought of us looking at things long ways now, I became hung up on how I wanted to look at this particular video. It only makes sense for me to make the video horizontal for the sake of story but then I knew people might just think, “ew, fucking horizontal. Skip”. I would never fall lame to social constructs and their tribal-like influences but for this, I was sort of into exploring the psyche of the viewer themselves. Like one would tickle ones butthole, because remember, we’re still in foreplay, I decided to tickle the butthole of the masses and give them what they wanted by deciding on vertical video. I mean the path of the righteous “Shape” was already going to be strange enough. It’s nuts, so let’s play with them.

Cream color Wallpaper

Reference six, cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki. “Chivo” as his peers like to call him is a multi-awarded cinematographer. You might have noticed his most notable work in the 2014 film Birdman or the 2015 film The Revenant and if we’re sticking to sexual analogies for the sake of this essay, Chivo would be the strongest tongue to ever play the game. I chose him as a reference to lighting in saying to myself, Chivo plus John Carpenter, PLUS Ari Aster, introducing him into this world of animation might be a cool thing to see. Not just because he’s an award winning cinematographer but because of his lighting. If I wanted a whimsical tone I would have went with Robert Yeoman who does a lot of Wes Andersons stuff. I thought as a director for this project as to what needed to be divvied out accordingly. Chivo was the best fit for this project. So “Emmanuel Lubezki type kitchen lighting” goes into the Midjouney AI art prompt and it pops out what I need for the video. As easy as that sounds it’s hard to actually know what you want. For instance wallpaper played a huge part when it came to its lighting. These are all things that they’ll ask you on set. Set decorators I imagined hounding me with swabs of textures and colors of creams, colors in creams. “What’s a good lamp” they ask as I’m deciding on window shapes and design. This all went into the creation of the doll house effect.
It’s all about texture really. Feeling, i had to caress this monster before its climax. This video had to be sold in reality meaning, you had to believe it was actually something physical I was running a camera through. I learned that texture in visuals, texture in ANY visual are important but I noticed that THAT idea gets lost in most music videos today. I heard a movie review guy on YouTube state that it’s mostly tone and texture that frightens him. I thought about texture in pictures other than horror. What are romantic textures like? Action textures. A dramatic texture, not lighting, but to actually allow your audience to feel like they can physically feel a divorce or a miscarriage. I thought about this for the Paradise video and having Chivo’s lighting I knew I wanted to take drastic advantages. Maybe this beast would say, “stop, no”. Lust can only get you so far in this game of passion and if we’re playing for time, “stop, no” has to be persuaded to “yes, keep going”.

Was that Real?

Reference seven, the 1999 film The Blair Witch Project I remember infecting everything media when it first came out. I remember the wild west days of the internet and its vulnerability to content. Before content was what is considered content today, creativity was law. A thirty second video of a person doing the griddy wasn’t going to cut it back in the Windows 98 days. You’d hear about this video going around about this group of kids filming a documentary about a witch who killed children, then get lost in the woods while filming the doc. The seed of an image, grainy, shaky, eerie in asking yourself, “Why keep filming”. This short term urban legend eventually hit the press and supposedly the whole video was going to be released in theaters. It was called The Blair Witch Project. The wild west internet couldn’t keep up with its traffic at the time as people were flooding Ask Jeeves in asking, “is the Blair witch real”. No one knew what it was, this was all new, anything could be anything and everything was fucking exciting about it. Like watching a snuff film you WATCHED these kids get lost, freak out, cry, scream, beg for their lives as a fucking wooded witch terrorized them eventually, killing them. WTF! I mean ask Jeeves, go ahead and ask him. Still, nothing in 1999 was answered about this video. This idea of “WTF is happening”, I wanted for the Paradise video. I mean it was already WTF type of vibes but I think I can bring it closer to that, the concept being, a Blair Witch Project type of discovery but on TikTok. So as you watched mom do the griddy and baby laughing hysterical calling it “cute”, you flip your thumb up and there’s Paradise, this strange VHS looking video. VHS being the key ingredient I needed to get the panties off.

It was Nuttin’

The sex was okay. It’s not like painting. With painting your’re fucking right off the bat. It’s a continuous high. Assembling the video was tedious and not that I’m oppose to tidiness but, I’m trying to find that constant point of interest. Making something like the Paradise video, there was always a constant set back. My dick wouldn’t get hard at certain moments. I think the thing that keeps you afloat with something like this is the passion, the will to see the outcum. In the end I thought about “The Shape” (the killer) in the video and how he feels about the whole thing. How in the end his bird was always meant to be inside her and the meaning of word “paradise”. I figured that these are his words not ours. We don’t know what the fuck paradise is. He does though. He lives in a constant state of play, with urgency and as long as this video plays, he gets to play and she stays urgent. You only can understand this by growing into adulthood and until you understand the balance of adulthood, you can’t understand the balance between the “state of paly” and the “state of urgency” thus between the two, you’ll never be able to call it, “Paradise”.

2023.03.22 17:11 Arceus919 Baron Augustus Reinhold

Baron Augustus Reinhold
Curious Village is a game near and dear to my heart. It was the second (oops) Professor Layton game that I played, because I saw Diabolical Box advertised in a Nintendo Power magazine and thought it looked fun, so I played it. After completing it, I rushed to GameStop to buy Curious Village as well because I had been captivated by the game’s world and puzzles that I loved.
Playing the game 10+ years later, I start to notice some things that seem, well, off. I suppose this is to be expected as it’s the world of video games, but I just couldn’t shake the idea that Augustus Reinhold was really not a great father.
The Character
Professor Layton and the Curious Village opens up with Layton telling us that the Baron has passed away and they were going to settle an inheritance dispute - his entire estate would go to whomever found the “golden apple” of St. Mystere. Layton had gotten a call from Lady Dahlia (I try my best not to think too hard about how this happened) to help in the search.
Every move we make, the characters tell us how wonderful a father Augustus was and how much he cared for his family. "You'd never seen a man so in love as Master Reinhold was," Ingrid would say. From all the expectations from Matthew, Ingrid, and the rest of the cast, I was expecting much more than what I got out of his tale. Being a father is the only role he has, that's basically the sole purpose of the game.
Look mom I’m """Helping""" (Before He Died)
Flora’s mother Violet died when she was young. Instead of helping her through grief and being there for her when she needed a parent the most, he went the opposite direction and built Lady Dahlia in Violet’s likeness instead. Flora was frightened by the new robo-mom, but Augustus didn’t seem to care - not a good look for someone who loves his daughter so much. Even after saying he would love Flora as much as he loved Violet after her passing, he still managed to show that he cared about his dead wife more than his living daughter by keeping the wife-bot around. Flora would play alone in the manor’s garden around her mother’s grave. Instead of helping cheer her up, spending quality parental time with her, or even thinking about what she might want, he builds a whole ass amusement park all the way on the other side of town for her. It came to no surprise that Flora didn’t care for this either, so he lets the park go into ruin and does nothing else to help her.
Look mom I have a """great idea""" (as he was dying)
So Augustus learns that he has a terminal illness and sets about securing a future for her daughter. Mr big money brains decides to build an entire town and fill it with robots (we all know how much Flora loved the first one) to keep her company and """protect""" her. He basically goes and isolates her from the outside world for !!!YEARS!!! I’m going to assume that Flora is around 13 during the events of the game and was no more than 5 when her mother died. Because it says Augustus dies only a few years later we can estimate that Flora knew and interacted with not a single real person for FIVE YEARS. She lived at the top of the tower with no one to interact with. I kinda feel like a lot of her childhood trauma stemmed from losing family and people close to her, so the best solution is obviously to isolate her, yeah? What a thing to do to your only child. What’s worse is what happens after that - the baron’s death is made public and the search for the Golden Apple begins. The will promised riches beyond belief to the winner, but was disguised to also be a contest to find the next family for Flora (I don’t even want to go into the original Japanese message at the end of the game, that’s a whole different rabbit hole). In my opinion, a contest that people went crazy over for untold riches would seem to draw the opposite kind of people that I would want to take care of an only child - “oh here’s a billion dollars, but also my daughter k thanks.”
Look mom I’m """dead"""
So Augustus decides to die, leaving Flora to grow up locked away in her tower, not ever knowing if his amazing riddle will ever be solved just like the useless father he was. Great guy.

2023.03.22 16:55 Super-Shenron Endless Cycle

Lilly hid behind a tree, her breath held as hard as she could. She cursed her burning legs as she peered around both corners for potential attackers. All she saw was a silent, unmoving walker on the ground next to a shed. Waiting about five minutes in the same spot, she checked her bullets. Two. Noting to make her shots count, she stepped closer to examine the body and gave it a light kick. Lilly took its lack of response as a blessing to dig through its pockets, glancing over her shoulder the whole time. But whoever killed them already took everything they had.
“Shit.” Lilly said. Yet, her hand landed on something firm but small…
A quarter. Virginia, 2005 was written on it. Her father never had that one in his collection, although Lilly could imagine his reaction if he did. Funny. After all he went through on the battlefield, these tiny pieces were one of the few things that brought him some solace. If nothing else, Lilly dared to hope he finally found closure. Amidst the endless pounding of their heart, the living could use such luxury.
“Ah!” She gasped, taken aback by a nearby rustling. In a steady and quiet pace, Lilly huddled back in her hiding spot with a trembling hold of her weapon. Was she really being followed? She couldn’t even trust her senses with how light-headed she constantly felt. She dared another peek… when a man burst through the leaves, carrying a pot of sunflower in his hands. It was normally Lilly’s cue to leave… but the glimpse she took of his face stopped her. Against her better judgment, she double checked…
“Oh god…” Lilly held her tightened chest and used the tree for support. He… was there. That fucking animal was right here. He had an unkempt beard and an eyepatch, but this wasn’t a face Lilly could forget. Not that she didn’t try to… but even her “sleep” wouldn’t allow her. Like she was still imprisoned in that meat locker. Like there was no way out… none except death.
It didn’t have to be her own.
Just as she was about to come out of hiding… the door of the cabin closed. He was definitely inside… but he’d see her coming. There would be better opportunities to make him pay.
To think she once tried to find common ground with that…
“... That guy.”
“Kenny.” Lee corrected.
“Right.” Lilly coughed. “You really think I should talk to him?”
“I guess that’s up to you.”
Despite his evasive reply, his flickering gaze from Kenny to her made Lee’s opinion on the matter clear. If they were to live together, it would be a lot easier to bury the hatchet.
Lilly met this man yesterday, but it already felt like she could understand him. Talk to him about a lot of things. Was it because they’ve been (quite literally) staring death in the eyes together? After spending so long planning or preparing for… the end, one would think she would be somewhat prepared for this.
Lilly turned to Kenny, who kept watch at the top of the RV. Next thing she knew, she let him take charge of the situation. And now she owed one to the last per How was she even supposed to go on about this? Something like “I’m sorry I was going to feed your son to these monsters”? This wasn’t gonna end well… but she was supposed to relieve him of his duty anyways.
She took a deep breath. “Here goes nothing. Hey, Kenny.”
As soon as Lilly announced her presence, the father’s very eyes wanted to bury her deep. “For the watch?”
“Listen…” Lilly rubbed the back of her left arm, “First, I wanted to… thank you, for helping me and my father back there… despite the circumstances.”
Kenny raised an eyebrow for a few seconds, before wearing a neutral expression. “It was just the right thing to do.”
“And… you should know I didn’t think he was in the right.”
“Could’ve fooled me.” Kenny replied through gritted teeth.
“We were all in a bad situation, Kenny. You saw what happened after that argument with my dad.”
“Oh!” Kenny laughed bitterly, “So now this is my fault?!”
“It’s not…!” Lilly inhaled and exhaled once more. “Look. Maybe that’s not an excuse but… he’s all I have left, and I’m doing whatever I can to keep him alive. Perhaps you can understand that?”
Kenny opened his mouth to say something else… but nothing came out of it. Instead, he had an almost vacant look on his face.
"Kenny?" Lilly called out to him.
"I… was just thinking of something else. It's not important.”
Lilly could tell it wasn’t true, but now wasn’t the time to ruin her progress with an inappropriate question.
“Well, what are you waiting for?” Kenny reached a hand towards Lilly, “Climb on."
Surprised by the offer, Lilly jumped up and let him help her up. There, she could see the walkers.
“Look at these guys.” He said. “All walkin’ around like they’re not about to fuck over the town. What do you think when you see them?”
“Lee asked me the same question.” Lilly said. “What’s even there to think?”
“I mean…” Kenny said. “When they talk about resurrection… I had a whole different picture in mind. Whatever happened to their souls-”
“Souls? What, you’re religious or something?”
“Born and raised a Christian man.”
“Well, I go back and forth. But religion and hope… Lee has seen the good it did that girl from the other night. It’s best to focus on being alive than relying on these things.
Kenny stayed silent for a few seconds.
“I’m aware this whole thing might be bullshit, Lilly. But where the hell would we be, if there weren’t people who believed in crazy things. Like that a piece of rock could somehow make a fire. Or… I’m sure Lee’s got historical facts for us. Point is, maybe we need to believe in some things to make it through this.”
“Well…” Lilly said. “I'm not in a hurry to find out which of us is right about the afterlife. Let me take over.”
“It’s alright. I think I’ve got another hour in me.”
“Okay… I’ll see you later.”
Lilly hopped down from the vehicle. While she refused to believe there was a golden house on a fluffy cloud with her mother waiting for her… at least they seemed to have worked something out.
Kenny watched the lady get further away from him before resuming his duty. An apology would’ve been nice, but realizing they were in the wrong would have to do for now. Besides… some of what she said wasn't total bullshit. His gaze drifted towards Katjaa and Duck’s room. If nothing else, these things gave him an opportunity to be with them. And he already had blood on his hands… it had to count for something.
Didn’t it?
“Why am I thinking about it all of a sudden?” Kenny muttered.
It probably wasn’t helped by… waking up early again. He had something to do anyway. Disregarding his canned food once more, Kenny picked up the pot and pushed the door open.
“Man…” his back made sure to remind him how old he was. About as soon as he came out, two walkers limped towards him. He briefly pondered over what it must have been like for them. Were they suffering on the inside? Or… was there nothing left? No longer weighed down by such things like age, or fearing for their lives… or being ashamed of anything they do.
Kenny kicked them both... barely staggering them. Another kick... and that was enough to knock down. Pondering on his unusual weakness, he continued on his path. His plans didn’t involve getting his hands dirty… besides, they could probably distract whatever was out there yesterday. He may have imagined it, though.
The former fisherman continued along the treeline to reach the makeshift tomb he had made. Too small of a grave for the pile of bodies he left in his wake, but it would have to be enough at that moment.
"Here, your favorite." Kenny said. “You know I was more of a fan of gifts that last… but what can I say? This world has a hell of a way to make you appreciate what doesn’t.”
He closed his eye.
“I didn’t look back, just like I promised not to. But Clem was right. I didn’t know these people. Or what will happen if this place falls one day. Should I have left her there? Am I even capable of looking after them?”
He tenderly touched the grave.
“Truth be told? I don’t even know what I’m doing here anymore. Do I even belong here? Sometimes… sometimes I catch myself thinking maybe it should have been me. You probably would have been smarter than me about things. You wouldn’t have tried to march people through a blizzard for nothing. You wouldn’t have… been alone.”
Kenny shook his head. "I guess it doesn't matter now. Same time tomorrow?"
Time had come to head back home. All this... somehow lightened the load on his heart somehow. Maybe today he would actually feel like feeding his body. Or better yet, actually grab some sleep. At least, it settled the argument: he truly was in no condition to take care of anybody else. In fact, he was more likely to drag them down with him and get them killed too.
When he pushed the door open, his blood ran cold a cold metal pressed against the back of his head.
“Guess your boat plan didn’t work out?” A woman said.
“The fuck?!” Kenny let out.
“Turn around. Slowly.”
Trying and failing to keep his heartbeat under control, Kenny did as he was told...
"Jesus..." Kenny muttered, as he faced the person he just about wanted to see the least.
Lilly approached with a smirk. “You remember me, yet you're awfully calm. Good. This will make things easier. Get inside.”
An impulse to just charge the she-devil and take her gun surged through him... Kenny shut down that impulse and obeyed Lilly.
"Sit down."
He did, sitting right next to the cans. Lilly closed the door and sat down as well. The sunrays piercing through the wood still betrayed many things about her. She always had a thin frame, but it got to sick levels since then. She wore her hair into a ponytail... and she had atrocious bags under her blood-shot eyes.
“The others aren’t with you." Lilly kept a stern tone. "So, they’re dead?”
Kenny didn’t respond, but this question felt like a sucker punch. Probably the way she wanted it to.
“Even… Clementine?” Lilly's voice remained stern, but slightly lower.
"... Yes." Kenny said.
Lilly blinked twice before getting closer to Kenny, but not within grabbing range.
"After all that effort." Lilly said, each word heavier than the last. "All the risk we took... and we still couldn't keep any of them safe. Maybe they weren’t meant to live."
Kenny formed a tight fist as everything just boiled inside of him. "We have nothing to talk about! If you're gonna kill me, just get it over with!"
“There is the Kenny I know! Hasty as ever. You didn’t think we were gonna rush this, did you?”
Lilly got up, with a sudden smile.
“I know Clementine is still out there.”
This reveal struck Kenny in his core. There was no way... no way she could have learned from it unless she got in Wellington or...
"Looks like you worked out how I learned about this." Lilly said. "You've gotten careless, Kenny. Do you know how many times I could have killed you? Luckily for you... I still have uses for you. Where is she?"
"Over my dead body."
As soon as he finished his sentence, a sharp pain on his knee ripped a scream out of him. "Fuck!"
"Consider it your final warning."
Kenny laughed. "How stupid do you think I am? You're gonna kill me anyways... and it won't change shit for you. After what you did, she'll never want anything to do with you."
As he said, he faked doubling over because of the pain, instead reaching for one of the cans.
“I will be the judge of that." You? You’ve got a different proble-."
Lilly didn't get to finish her sentence, as Kenny threw the item on her face. He got up while his enemy missed the second shot. With all the strength he could afford, he limped as fast as he could towards Lilly. He grabbed her throat with both hands and slammed her against the wall. Lilly frantically tried to reach for his hand... and he bit her finger in response.
Why? Why did she have to find him now? After all this time? Why couldn't he just be left alone?! This was on her. Not him. Not him.
This was for Clem.
"Just... fucking die." Lilly's efforts to fight Kenny grew weaker and weaker as her skin reddened.
Kenny's vision blurred... and his grip loosened. And soon after his balance broke, letting him fall on his back.
It was over. He couldn't stop Lilly now. He was too weak. Again, he let Clem down. Like everyone else in his life.
And now... now he would finally pay for it. He wanted this. God knows he had it coming for so long. So what is that shiver down his spine? Where was it coming from?
Before wondering any further... he finally shut his eyes.
Make some room for me, Kat...
"Shit..." Lilly finally let out once she recovered her breath. So close to the black out, her sight slowly cleared itself again.
Coming out of the shed, the two walkers from earlier were returning. If he somehow survived this... this would poetic justice to leave him to them.
How did she not see what Kenny was doing? This... could been her. Her burning throat signaled her life... but this would kill her one day.
Over the next few weeks following this incident, Lilly kept going. And going. She got justice... but nothing changed. Not one bit. Each piece of her very being were falling apart. And still, she was a prisoner.
Thus she kept going and going, chasing after that new reason to stay alive.
Chasing after her only hope.

2023.03.22 16:42 ParamedicUpstairs793 Update: Wrapping my head around why I (40M) fantasize about MFM with my wife (39F)

Nearly a year ago I made this post:
I figured an update was due because I've had people ask me periodically what has happened since.
In September of this past year, we did attend a swinger club near where we live. My wife has also become a bit curious about women. Those 2 things are covered in my post history.
Since our first club visit in September, she has really enjoyed going to the clubs. She has gotten all the male attention I knew she would get. I didn't realize how many women in the LS are bisexual and she's received a lot of attention from women as well. This has all been very tame. Basically enjoying the vibe of the club, having sex with each other and then going home and having more hot sex. She loves getting dressed up and ordering clothes for the theme nights. She has been buying and wearing really revealing outfits which I've loved.
Her confidence and self esteem has gone through the roof. I think she finally believes me when I tell her how attractive she is and how desirable she is to other men (and apparently women!). She no longer feels that I just tell her this out of obligation.
For New Year's we attended our first hotel takeover. We were literally having sex on a balcony overlooking the party shortly after the ball dropped. Friends of ours were watching us from the doorway of their room. Next thing we knew we were having sex on their bed parallel with 2 other couples. It was easily the most erotic thing we had ever done and we loved it!
Since then we've probably been to clubs a total of about 10 times. We've enjoyed meeting other couples and have parallel played several times with some light touching between the ladies. We've become much more comfortable discussing fantasies and boundaries and I think at some point we may be ready to soft swap. I realize our pace is slower than some other couples, but we are going at a slow pace to make sure we're both OK with what's happening and we don't want to make any mistakes.
There's been numerous changes in our relationship, but I'd summarize by saying she's lost weight, has become very confident in sexy outfits and being completely nude, has gotten much better at accepting sincere compliments from men and women, and has started becoming more comfortable flirting and talking to other men.
She also confided that she has been insecure about the size of her boobs since we were teenagers. She's very petite and does have small boobs. I've never thought about it or cared because she's gorgeous and I prefer petite women. I told her that she could have them done as long as she was doing it for herself and not for me. She's scheduled to get them done the first week of April and is very excited about it. I'm excited for her because I'm hoping it will finally make her feel the way I feel about her. She's already perfect.
We still haven't swapped, but we've talked a lot about it. I still don't know if we will, but neither of us is worried about it. We love each other and our current sex life so there isn't a need for it to happen. We have had a few small hiccups along the way and I think it would be disingenuous not to mention them.
  1. A man she found attractive that we parallel played with at one point wanted her to join him and his wife for a soft swap. His wife was into my wife, but not into me. I'm fine with her not being into me. No hard feelings on my part. My wife explained that we only play together but would otherwise be interested. He didn't really seem to get the hint and made other comments about it and continued to pursue her. I was very conflicted and had trouble telling her how I was feeling. On one hand, I wanted her to have the experience if she wanted it, but on the other I hated the idea of being excluded. We discussed that our boundaries wouldn't change because of the fantasies of another couple and we've moved along. I'm open to the idea that maybe in the future if we've had other experiences, maybe her going with them wouldn't be a big deal, but we definitely aren't ready for that yet.
  2. My wife still isn't comfortable of the idea of me flirting and communicating with another woman. She feels a lot of guilt about this because she wants everything to be "fair". I've explained that I'm totally fine working at her pace and this is about enjoying a collective experience for both of us. I don't mind hitting the pause buttons on things that she isn't comfortable with yet. CLARIFICATION FROM COMMENTS: I can and do communicate with other women online. She's been honest that she's insecure about it and working through it. She hasn't asked me to stop.

We've discussed doing a LS resort vacation, but nothing scheduled yet. For now, we'll continue to go to the club with no expectations and if something happens, it happens. We've got one particular couple that we're very comfortable being intimate around which has been a lot of fun.
Sorry for the rambling post, but it's difficult to summarize 10 months of craziness into one update. I can say that thinking back, it's insane to realize how much our marriage has changed and improved in the past 10 months. Considering we've been together for over 20 years, these changes in such a short time are very dramatic, but exciting!

2023.03.22 16:40 TheSunIsAlsoMine Casshole ruined the yellow heart💛emoji for me. What did she ruin for you?! [Originally posted 3/22/23 by me]

Fucking Casshole.
ETA: prefacing this by saying that obviously an internet idiot stranger isn’t actually impacting me in any sort of significant way, no one should let some crazy lady from TikTok ruin anything meaningful - this post is just regarding those small little things that don’t really matter on any sort of level, like a yellow heart emoji etc. etc.
I used to use lots of heart emojis - in all colors (!!) - when texting or typing anything where an emoji keyboard is available, and now I find myself avoiding these 💛💛💛 and it pisses me off. I just keep thinking that it is now a symbol of her gross life and her baby daddy nick name.
Are there things you used to do/say that you now avoid because it gives you Casshole vibes? Has she used any specific products that now you think twice before getting? Does she do anything that you used to think was acceptable but now that you’ve seen her do it you can’t help but feel it’s obnoxious??
Share your annoyances below! There are no wrong answers. Cheers 😂

2023.03.22 16:36 MerlinDoingStuff Is Petilil a rare outbreak?

Im doing another run of Scarlet and decided to go for a shiny Petilil via outbreaks, but even with messing with the time for a few hours, I've not seen a single one pop up. I went to both area Petilill is said to spawn in the dex and no luck. Serebii says they can outbreak too and I'm starting to drive myself crazy. Do I need go further progress the gyms or is it just rare? Only one badge down on this run from the bug lady.
