2023.05.29 01:58 RainyZurich [Spoilers] Marty & Wendy

I finished my re-watch and I'm finding how Marty forgave everything Wendy had done in the last couple of episodes even more bizarre the second time around - do you guys think they stayed together after the finale?

I Just think of everything she's done between S1 and S4 and I'm baffled at how Marty can talk about loving her unconditionally all things considered.
I think she's a great character, super interesting and complicated but she's done nothing but show repeatedly that she had no ability to empathise and is willing to manipulate any situation to get what she wants.
Marty is not perfect by any stretch but the conversation they have in the hotel after Ruth killed Javi really brings home that he cares, he has a conscious about all the people they are hurting and all the lives they've destroyed.

Perhaps he can look past the things she's done and said to other people but the way she's acted with them also seems insane:
- In season 2 she literally went out of her way to undermine Marty which in turn made him look more and more irrelevant to Navarro (which could have ended with him being killed for being a blocker based on how Helen was asking Ruth if she could take over etc)
- She ignored every concern he every raised about not wanting to get even deeper with the cartel because she wanted to go ahead with a plan where they came out at the top rather than just get out
- Threatening Charlotte's lawyer when she was trying to get emancipation
- Getting Jonah's accounts flagged in the hopes he'll be arrested to scare him into coming back home
- How willing she was to tell Javi about Ruth before they even knew how it was going to play out but knowing full well that Javi wouldn't have hesitated to kill her
- Lying to Marty about how her conversation with Navarro went and Marty only finding out that he'd threatened to kill them all when he was being picked up to go to Mexico
- Getting herself committed to manipulate/guilt the kids into staying

I honestly think the conversation right at the end where she thinks Ruth's death might be too much to bare and that she'll lose Marty is realistic because I don't think he would have gotten over it as if it was nothing.

His ability to just go home at the end of the night and tell her that he loves her just baffles me and I don't know I'm missing something or too upset about Ruth's death to see it rationally

2023.05.29 01:58 DeepScale4525 On belief-based discrimination, ableism, and stereotyping

I've recently seen a post about Marianne Williamson in which people who were probably atheists were attacking her unfairly. I say this as someone who isn't inclined to support her because of her lack of political experience. People were commenting that, while she has some good and progressive ideas, she's not credible and is "crazy" because of her spiritual views. Yet, they didn't say the same about Biden even though he's a devout Catholic. Both Williamson and Biden are pro-vaxx Democrats. If one is an atheist (or just doesn't share either candidate's spiritual/religious views), there shouldn't be this unfair double standard.
This double standard is from normalcy bias, perhaps combined with misogyny in this case. It's considered normal to be a Christian in the US. It's not considered normal to have New Agey beliefs. Williamson is a woman whose spirituality is widely associated with witchcraft. The centuries-old stigma against anything deemed witchcraft is still prevalent today, with both Christians and non-Christians perpetuating it.
If you were hiring for a job and refused to hire a qualified candidate because of their New Age beliefs, that would be discrimination.
Being religious or spiritual is not a mental illness. It's just having different views. Even if it was, refusing to hire an otherwise qualified candidate because of a mental illness or disability would still be discrimination.
Many (but definitely not all) atheists like to insult religious/spiritual people by calling them mentally ill, saying they need meds, or calling for them to be institutionalized. This is not okay. It's an ableist armchair diagnosis loaded with a tone that encourages dehumanizing those with mental illnesses and stripping them of their autonomy. How do you think your friend with bipolar or OCD would feel if you said such a thing in front of them?
People who have mental illnesses, are neurodivergent, or have inner experiences considered unusual or extreme are living in a world where we often fear having our basic rights stripped. Many people and some institutions want to see us "put away" from "normal" society. They accuse us of being dangerous even when we're not. They don't want us to be able to make our own medical decisions or have much of a say in anything. We're not fully human to them.
I'm neurodivergent, have C-PTSD, and have had unusual inner experiences. I'm very familiar with this kind of ableism. It bothers me when atheists and theists alike attack those they disagree with (whether they're right or wrong) by suggesting that they're mentally ill and should therefore be put away. This way of treating disagreement is incompatible with a free society in which people have freedom of conscience and are able to engage in honest truth seeking.
If you disagree with someone's views, even if you're addressing the dangerous bullshit views of a QAnoner, you can do so without being ableist. Ableism, like normalcy bias, is not only dehumanizing and harmful, but it's also not a real argument against anything.
Similarly, it doesn't help one's cause to make assumptions about those with different views that may not be accurate. Atheists and theists alike do this. Some (but not all) atheists like to accuse certain spiritual/religious people of being anti-vaxx, evolution deniers, human-caused climate change deniers, anti-choice, anti-LGBTQ+, conservative, or fascist without knowing whether they are or not.
These atheists may also accuse them of believing things they may not believe related to spirituality/religion. Some spiritual/religious people don't frame the universe or their sense of self in Western ways. Some spiritual/religious people don't believe in religious texts as the literal word of God, salvation only through a certain religion, the virgin birth, the rapture, a personal deity, an authoritarian deity, heaven or hell in the afterlife, reincarnation, spiritual entities, psychic channeling, healing crystals, etc. Some spiritual/religious people see reality as ultimately fair despite awful human suffering (which they see as human created, not God's will) because they see the whole physical universe as a dream or illusion of an eternal life force in which anything is allowed to happen--and in which everything passes back into wholeness when each dream is over. Agree or disagree with spiritual/religious views, it's important to treat people fairly and rationally.
When some atheists attack spiritual/religious people by resorting to normalcy bias, ableism, or misrepresenting them, it doesn't make these atheists look rational. It just makes it seem like they hate spiritual/religious people and are willing to take low, cheap shots at painting them as boogeymen in any way they can. This is not an intelligent way to disagree even if the other people are wrong.
To be clear, I'm not at all saying we shouldn't call out religious abuses, which we're well aware are widespread. Those absolutely need to be stopped. As a trans man who's exhausted by all the Christofascist bigotry and violence, I feel strongly about that.
Also, this is a free reality, and people have every right not to engage with religion or spirituality just as they have the right to personal autonomy, freedom of conscience, and to engage in honest truth seeking as long as they're not harming others.
TL&DR: Discrimination is not okay. There are intelligent, rational ways to disagree with someone's views. Normalcy bias, ableism, dehumanization, and distortion are not among those ways and are not okay.

2023.05.29 01:57 go_chacha I fell in love with a man who has a hole in his heart.

To start, I've been going through some things. I have a lot of issues. I grew up in a abusive household and have mental health issues that I go to therapy for. I'm in my early thirties and I realized recently that I need to value and love myself more. I am very broken and not in a place in my life right now where I can be my best self. I try my best, but I'm just not there yet where I feel like I can be a good partner. I went out of town for a couple of days just to get away from life and practice some self-love. I met him at the hostel I was staying at. It wasn't love or lust at first sight. I was chatting with a bunch of people and he was one of them. Eventually, we were just talking more and more. We were laughing so much and were even at some point dancing. It wasn't anything sexual, we were just being dorks and enjoying each other's company. Next night, he came over to where I was and we were able to chat again. We were with other people chatting as well, then eventually it was just us two. I told him that he was sunshine, that that's what I associate him with, this beam of light and joy. I just felt so comfortable with him. I felt myself falling for him and attached. He was so kind, dorky, funny, and just lovable. I don't think he felt anything romantic towards me, but I think it will just be easier thinking he didn't. He eventually told me that he had this heart condition, a hole in his heart. He was telling me about it and what he's not able to do. I felt so sad and slowly started getting in my head. I called it a earlier night and went to my dorm while the party was still going. I wrapped the blanket I was using around him and told him I was going to bed. He looked up at me and asked if I would be there the next day. I said yes and smiled. I woke up still in my head, thinking about how damaged I was and how much I could hurt him. I couldn't shake this sadness and fear off of me. I ended up shortening my stay and packed my things. We never exchanged info and he doesn't know what my full name is, nor do I his. He's probably expecting to see me tonight, but I won't be there because I'm back at in LA. I feel regret and remorse, but I feel like I made the right call. He might not even notice that I'm gone. I cried most of the way back. He lives in another state and will be leaving tomorrow. I will miss him. Regardless of how little I knew of him, I just loved how he made me feel. I hope that he will have fond memories of me too. I'm glad that I didn't show this broken side of me, I want him to remember me as being happy. I will probably never see him again and his life will be wonderful. Since I didn't get to tell him this...Eric, thank you for dancing and laughing with me. You will always have a special place in my heart. Thank you for being that sunshine that I needed.

2023.05.29 01:56 KnightBreeze What I've Become: Chapter X

First Previous
The first thing that Si’feri became aware of was the gentle rocking motions. She hadn’t been held like this since she was a chick, and while it was incredibly soothing, it was still somewhat demeaning. “I’m awake, you can set me down, now,” she said as she opened her eyes to look at whomever was carrying her.
She had to push down a wave of terror when she saw that it was Al’ecs. As much as she knew that the alien would never hurt her, his face was still something that had been dredged up from the deepest of nightmares, and really wasn’t something anyone wanted to wake up to. “I’m up… I’m up…” she said, gently tapping the alien on the shoulder, trying to make it clear that she didn’t want to be held any more.
Al’ecs stopped immediately before he set down the groggy hen. Sir Kev, who had apparently been walking next to Al’ecs, drew closer with a concerned look on his face. “Are you well, M’lady?” Kev asked, holding out a hand to help steady her.
“I’m fine, this has been known to happen from time to time,” she said, before taking stock of their surroundings. They were still in the forest, though they were nowhere near the clearing anymore. She also noticed that Al’ecs still carried her basket, though she had no idea why. “Were we on our way back?”
“I believe so, M’lady. You passed out not long after completing your vision, and Al’ecs picked you up and began taking you towards town. I have merely been following,” Sir Kev said, bowing respectfully. “I hope we did not disturb any after visions or effects you might have been experiencing.”
“You did not. In fact, thank you for doing just that, as we have very little time to waste, and staying where we were would have just delayed us. I need to speak with Tor and Ja’vail as soon as possible, preferable the second we get out, though I already know that that is not going to happen,” Si’feri said before she turned back towards Al’ecs. As she studied the expressionless alien, the warning from the vision seemed to echo in her ears, reminding her of the possible doom that she might have to place on him. With a chipperness she did not feel, her crest perked back up to its original bounciness as she placed a hand on the creature’s upper arm. “Don’t worry, we’ll work through this, okay?”
The creature clearly didn’t understand her, but he seemed to appreciate the sentiment all the same, as evidenced by the way the creature gently placed a hand on her head. Al’ecs tried to say something, but whatever came out of his maw was both far too garbled, and in a completely unrecognizable tongue. Si’feri really had no chance of understanding the creature, but somehow that didn’t matter to her. It was clear to her that Al’ecs was just happy to have someone to interact with, regardless of any actual understanding.
That realization alone was enough to bring the baker to tears. How long have you been alone like this? she thought as the creature slowly removed his hand. He turned around, clearly intent on making his way back to his cave, but stopped when Si’feri reached out and touched his back. He turned back to her, his face as expressionless as the first time she had seen him in her dreams, but that didn’t stop her from seeing past all of that, and into the being that lay underneath the monster.
The face looked far fuller, with an odd set of lips, like those on a dragon or a pig, though neither of those comparisons did them justice. Their corners were turned upwards somewhat, in an expression that, on anything else, would have made the creature more menacing as it bared its teeth. On Al’ecs, however, it was a warm expression, made even friendlier by how the corners of his eyes changed to match. On the top of his head was a shock of reddish orange fur, a small, button-like nose sat in the center of his face, and right above them was a pair of gray eyes that shone with intelligence.
The vision only lasted a second, but in that instance she truly understood just how much Al’ecs had lost. Without even thinking about it, she threw her arms around the alien’s neck, pulling him into a tight hug, though she was mindful not to stick herself on the spikes on the creature’s back. “Don’t worry. We’ll get you home, I promise.”
The creature seemed stunned at this, completely unsure of what to do with his hands. After a few seconds of this, and when nothing terrible happened, he finally seemed to realize that this was very real. He then gently wrapped his arms around the hen, before a shuddering sob racked his body as tears began to flow freely from his eyes again. It didn’t take Si’feri long to realize that the feathers on the top of her head were quickly becoming soaked, but she didn’t care. It was a small price to pay when she considered the fact that the promise she had made was most likely a lie.
After what felt like an eternity of this, the two finally separated, and Si’feri could only watch as Al’ecs awkwardly tried to dry his face with his hands. Not knowing what else to do, Si’feri reached out and took the blanket from the basket the creature was holding before she offered it to him. He took it, but not before letting out a grateful sort of sound. “We’ve got to get going. We’ll be back tomorrow, though, okay?” Si’feri told him as he began patting his face dry with the blanket in his hands.
Despite him not understanding a single word she said, Al’ecs nodded, then proceeded to return the blanket to the basket before he held it out to her. Si’feri gently pushed it back, shaking her head as her crest bobbed in a happy manner. “It’s yours, as well as everything in it.”
Al’ecs just looked down at it, before he turned it upside-down, revealing that he had already eaten everything she had brought him as only the blanket fell out of it.
“I’m thinking that he really enjoyed your cooking, M’lady! So much so, that I think he’s trying to ask for seconds!” Sir Kev said with a laugh.
Si’feri’s crest perked up even higher as she took back the basket, but she still pushed the blanket into his open hands. “Well, why don’t I bring this back to you tomorrow? Filled to the brim, of course. But this is still yours.”
Al’ecs didn’t try to say anything in his garbled tongue, choosing to instead give them one last nod in gratitude before he turned back towards the forest, putting the blanket over his shoulders like a mantle as he walked away.
Si’feri was briefly tempted to bring the alien back to town, but quickly dismissed the idea. Despite night quickly coming, the Town of Jov was still quite alive. Getting the alien anywhere comfortable would require more magic and drake power than they currently had available, not to mention that Al’ecs would most likely spook and run in the event that someone started screaming.
No, it’s better this way, she thought as she watched the alien disappear into the forest.
It wasn’t even ten seconds later when she started having second thoughts. This was further compounded when several knights fluttered from the trees above and landed in front of her, their heads bowed low in respect.
“How long were you up there watching?” she asked them curiously.
“For quite some time, Ma’am. Sir Kev instructed us to stay hidden while the creature was still around,” the knight in front said, not rising from his bow. “I must say, it is an honor to-”
“Leave the formalities for someone who cares,” Si’feri said as she reached out to raise the knight from his bow. “We do not have time for ceremony, nor will such things save us from what is to come.”
“M’lady Siv?”
“Si’feri will do fine, for the time being,” Si’feri said before she turned back to town. She stopped, however, as a thought occurred to her. “How many knights are stationed at the creature’s cave?”
“Four, M’lady.”
She thought about this for a few seconds, before shaking her head. “Better increase it. Two of you should head to the clearing, and provide additional protection. The creature is to survive the night, am I clear?”
“As the rising sun, M’lady,” the leading knight said, rising from his bow. He then turned to his subordinates and clapped his hands together. “Tilvan, Mor, you two provide additional protection. We’ll send more once we get back to town, but in the meantime you and the others are to defend the creature with your lives, understood?”
The two soldiers quickly cut sharp salutes, then took off into the skies. The sight of the two valiant knights disappearing into the night sky did much to relieve the worry that had been building in Si’feri’s heart, but that relief was a fleeting thing. As Si’feri and her escorts traveled back towards town, she couldn’t help but feel her heart fall further and further, and she found herself wondering if it would be enough. * * * “Hey, Genpi, take a look at this, will you?”
Genpi released his magic, deactivating the heat wand in his hand that he had been using to cut through the alien ship. The vessel was made of some kind of metal the dakri had never seen before, and the team in charge of investigating the craft had found it extremely difficult to cut or pull apart the vessel through conventional methods, hence the reason why Genpi was painstakingly cutting into the metal siding of the ship with a heat wand. He had been making good progress, too, or rather, he would have been making progress, if it wasn’t for his colleague’s constant interruptions.
With a disgruntled sigh, Genpi pushed up his black tinted goggles and looked up at the excitable drake, his expression telling the whole world that this had better be worth his attention. “What is it now Penirl?”
Penirl stood about three meters away, in his hands an oddly shaped piece of metal. It was long and staff-like, but had what looked like a stock at one end.
It also looked like it had survived the crash reasonably intact.
“I’m thinking it’s some kind of weapon, but I already ran a detection spell to look for any enchantments, and I didn’t find anything,” Penirl said as he held up the thing for Genpi’s inspection. Penirl then grabbed the weapon by its grip, and held it in front of him like he would a Lightning Rod.
Thankfully, the drake had enough sense not to point it at anyone, otherwise Genpi would have smacked him upside the head right then and there. “Well, don’t just play with it, the higher ups will want to have a look at it,” Genpi said, waving the excitable young drake away.
“What do you think it does, though?” Penirl asked, ignoring Genpi’s instructions. “I’ve already tried the triggering mechanism, but nothing happened.” As if to demonstrate this, Penirl stuck his finger into the hole near the grip and squeezed the rather obvious trigger.
Nothing happened, but that did nothing to lighten Genpi’s mood about the drake playing around with something he didn’t understand. “Stop messing around and get that thing logged and put with the other artifacts,” Genpi said, shooing the drake away.
Penirl looked a little downcast at this, but quickly perked up. “Come on, Genpi! Aren’t you even the slightest bit excited?”
Genpi looked up at the drake before slowly returning his goggles to their old position. “I'll be ‘excited’ when I find out whether or not friends of these things are going to come looking for their lost ship. More importantly than that, though, is if they find the inhabitants of this planet in any way delicious.”
“Oh poo, you really need to lighten up,” Penirl said, sticking out his tongue at the older drake.
If Genpi saw this, he didn't show it, choosing to instead reignite his wand and get back to cutting.
Penirl shook his head in disapproval before he turned and carefully picked his way out of the wreckage of the ship. It didn't take him long to log and store the new discovery, during which he started having the oddest feeling that he was being watched. He looked up and around for a little bit, drawing a confused stare from the hen in charge of the recovered artifacts, but that didn’t matter to him as much. He would never admit it to Genpi, but what the older drake had said earlier had shaken him to the core.
“Are you okay?” the hen with the clipboard asked, her crest lowered ever so slightly in worry.
“Yeah… yeah, I’m fine…” Penirl said before he tried to shake off the feeling.
“Well, if you’re sure, then you probably should be getting back to work,” the hen reminded him.
Penirl nodded, but didn’t say anything as his eyes searched the edges of the crater for a few more seconds, before they moved to the skies above. After a few seconds of finding nothing, he turned and made his way back to the ship and into the depths below.
The hen’s eyes followed him until he disappeared, before she shrugged to herself and muttered about the strangeness of drakes, completely ignorant of the strange area of warped air that hovered just above the wreckage as it silently recorded the activity below. * * * Tor was in a bit of a panic. Lady Siv was one of his closest friends, but that relationship was somewhat marred by the fact that she never came to him with good news. When one coupled this with the fact that Siv had apparently had a vision specifically about the alien survivor, one could understandably see why the small king was distraught.
Nightmarish scenes began playing through his head; vastly superior forces invading his planet, insect-like creatures that could shape-shift infiltrating his forces, and his people rounded up like cattle, being used as weapons like the unfortunate survivor, or even as a source of food.
All of this and more danced through his mind and kept him at his desk as he desperately tried to think of some way out of this hellish scenario. Plan after plan was drawn up, considered, then ultimately thrown away, as he had no way to gauge the strength of his opponents with the information he currently had, but even with his limited understanding, he knew that he and his people would be conquered within a week should the aliens come. If they had the power to send a ship across the vast distance of space, what stopped them from hurling a meteor the size of Tor’s castle at his tiny Diarchy? What about several meteors? What about their own moon?
None of this sat well with the small king. If their enemy wanted, they could annihilate Tor’s little world before the planet’s inhabitants even knew what had hit them.
Unbidden, the king felt his eyes drawn to a particular book on his shelf. It was one he had read before, quite extensively for that matter, since it had been penned by one of his previous students. The concepts inside were just that, though: concepts. Nothing more than pipe dreams that the imaginative young drake had drawn up during his free time.
With a small grunt, the king held out his hand, while his beak glowed a brilliant golden color. Almost immediately, the book on the shelf took on a similar hue, and flew from its place on the shelf and into the king’s outstretched hand. He didn’t know why the book caught his eye, but something about the problems he faced reminded him of his long dead student. Maybe something about the way the curious drake saw the world would help me. At the very least, it would be a welcome diversion, the king thought to himself as he began to flip through the pages.
It wasn’t long before one of his student’s scrawls caught his eye, and he had to suppress a chuckle at the strange invention the drake had penned. “A wooden, flying golem. I remember that one,” Tor said fondly to himself. “Was supposed to be able to ferry weapons and equipment to soldiers in the field. If I remember correctly, Jovask even made a land-based version for transporting foodstuff. Pity, he never did get the instructions on his golems to work right…”
The king continued to idly flip through his apprentice’s notes and designs, stopping every so often to laugh fondly at what the drake had thought up, and the memories they conjured. There was an automatic arrow golem, a creation designed to do the washing up, and something that would gather flowers for some reason. Each and every creation brilliantly designed, but flawed by the creator’s inability to overcome the inherent weaknesses found in golemmancy.
With a shrug, Tor flipped through the remaining pages, fully intent on putting the book back once he reached the end, but stopped at the final page. On the page was a very strange device indeed. It looked like a random assortment of items, all tied to a central statue made to look like a Nightmare Falcon’s head. Tor remembered this particular invention: it was supposed to be the ultimate telescope, capable of not only gaining information on distant objects, but also able to track them for the benefit of the user. It could even locate invisible objects, if enough information for basic scrying was available.
The only problem was, again, the inherent problem with the school of golemmancy: The more complex the task, the more arcanite was required for the golem to perform said task. In order to get this thing to work, Jovask would have needed a hunk of arcanite the size of a large mountain.
Tor let out a weary sigh as he snapped the book shut. Shame, too. If we had Jovask’s Omniscope, we would at least be able to determine if there were any alien ships in orbit about to destroy us, maybe take a few with us using the sun and moon, but… golemmancy, of all things… he thought as his beak began to glow again. With no small amount of nostalgia, the King of the Dawn returned his former student’s work to its resting place.
“What’s wrong, Tory?”
Tor looked towards the open door of his study, his heart falling at the sight of the Lady Siv. Her crest was just as bouncy as he remembered it, though her dress and occupation seemed to have changed since the last time he saw her. “I see you’ve decided to take up baking,” Tor said as he stood to greet her.
“It was either that or basket weaving, and I felt that the people of Jov needed a baker more,” Siv said as she approached her old friend. “I see that Javy’s been rubbing off on you, as you seem to have grown mopey in your old age.”
Tor felt his crest perk up ever so slightly at that jab. “Hey, if I remember, wasn’t it you who told me that I should start acting my age?” he asked, placing his hands on his hips in mock anger.
“Yes, but I never expected you to take my advice!” Siv said as she rolled her eyes at the king. “It was just one of those things you say to a friend. ‘Act your age.’ ‘Don’t date your mortal enemy.’ ‘Don’t eat all the karro berry pockets.’ Never expected you to actually listen, though…”
They both stared at each other for some time until Tor couldn’t take it anymore and broke down in a fit of laughter. “Oh Siv, it’s been far too long…”
The Lady let out a few chuckles of her own, but the laughter never reached her eyes. Instead, there lurked a profound sadness there, one that made Tor’s laughter disappear as quickly as it had appeared.
“So, my friend, what doom have the spirits pronounced upon us?” Tor asked, his crest falling ever so slightly.
Siv let out a sigh, before slowly walking over to the king’s desk and taking a seat. “It’s bad. Really bad. Before, I’ve given you many ways to avoid fate’s decrees. Until this morning, I had never once seen a doom that had but one escape.”
Despite the hen’s gloomy demeanor, the king’s crest rose as he felt his heart leap in hope. “You mean there’s still a way out?”
Siv let out a weary sigh. “Yes, but it may involve the sacrifice of an innocent, and even then I cannot guarantee that your people will come out completely unscathed.” Siv fixed Tor with a stare that seemed to pierce straight through to his soul. “Are you prepared to hear the doom I would announce against you? Are you prepared for the doom that would swallow your people?”
“I am always prepared for this burden. You know that better than anyone, M’lady,” Tor said as he slowly circled his desk, then sat back down in his chair.
Siv reached into the pouch at her belt and pulled out a single memory crystal. “Then, O King of the Dawn, receive this doom, and turn it away for the sake of the living, and the sake of those yet to live,” she said as she placed the glowing red crystal on the desk.
Without hesitation, Tor reached out and took the crystal and gently prodded it with his power. His mind instantly became scorched with images of depravity and violence: Monsters and fire rained from the sky, and his people were turned into cold, unfeeling machines. Anguish washed over all of his senses, and it felt like he was being turned inside out.
Just as quickly as it had come, however, the feeling vanished. Tor now knew everything Siv had placed inside the crystal. Every torment she had experience now scarred his mind, including the way to annul the whole ghastly future.
“No… You cannot be serious…” Tor said, his voice shaking somewhat as he stared down at the crystal in disbelief.
“I am completely serious, King of the Dawn,” the Lady Siv said as she rose from her chair, stretched out her wings, and cast her gaze straight towards the heavens. “His fate is now in your hands. I pray for his sake and for ours that you will continue to be the wise king you have proven yourself to be.”
With those final words, the Lady Siv disappeared in a flash of fire, leaving behind a whiff of smoke, and a single, green feather.
Tor reached out and caught the feather in his magic before it had touched the ground, his eyes narrowed as he stared at the memento left behind. “Easy for you to say, old friend. You’re not the one who’s going to have to explain this to Ja’vail…” * * * Sir Viar looked up at the sound of flapping wings, his crest perking up ever so slightly as he recognized Tilvan and Mor. “Ho, what are you two doing back here?”
Tilvan, the superior of the two, cut a quick salute the moment he landed. “New orders, sir. We’re to reinforce you and protect the creature with our lives.”
Viar looked at the two, somewhat troubled. “Then shouldn’t you two have stayed with it? We only stayed here because The Lady wished it!”
“We did stay with it, sir,” Mor said, pointing to a particular patch of forest. A few seconds after he spoke, the bushes shook and parted to reveal the monster. It immediately spotted the group of dakri knights at the top of the cliff and gave them a short wave before approaching the ladder to its lair. “It seems to have incredibly accurate senses, and even slowed down for us once it knew that we were following it.”
Viar let out a sigh of relief before fixing the two with a searching stare. “Did either of you happen to hear Lady Siv’s vision?”
Both of them shook their heads, their crests lowering ever so slightly. “No sir. Whatever it was was pretty bad, though,” Tilvan said, watching carefully as the creature climbed its ladder to enter its cave. “I’m not an expert on the mood of The Lady, but I’d say that whatever she saw frightened her.”
Viar folded his wings as he thought about that. It wasn’t a good sign, and it made him wonder just what sort of doom was about to befall their planet. As he pondered the future, one of his drakes, Sir Isal, looked over the edge at the ladder below. “Anybody else wonder why this thing is completely okay with the fact that it’s basically under armed guard? I mean, we tried to stay hidden at first, and you remember how quickly it spotted us.”
“I do,” Viar said with a nod, but seemed to be completely unconcerned about this. “I also know that this thing is extremely intelligent, and we left plenty of clues that we were the ones that pulled it out of the river, including a note.”
Isal looked a little confused. “But if this thing isn’t even from this planet, how would it read it? I don’t think it speaks Midlander.”
Viar shook his head. “No, it doesn’t. Which was why the note was only pictures, not Midlander, Sunrise, or Nightmare. We’re trying to talk with it, not confuse it.”
“But how can we be certain that it understands pictures the same way we do? How can you be sure that it can even see in the same spectrum of light?” Isal asked, his skepticism clear on his face. “For all we know, this thing can’t see the charcoal marks on the paper, or even at all. I mean, it doesn’t exactly have irises.”
Mor looked a little confused. “If it can’t see, then how is it able to navigate so easily? I mean, it never got hit once by the undergrowth of the forest.”
“I’m thinking it probably uses echolocation, like how the Nightmare tribe would conduct their ceremonial hunts!” Isal said, his crest rising with excitement. “I’ve been reading up on them, and apparently-”
Before the excited knight could build up any steam, however, Viar cut him off with a single, light thwap to the back of Isal’s head. “Stow it, Isal. It can see, the queen was quite certain of that. In fact, from what I’ve heard from Her Majesty, it’s actually quite remarkable how similar we are on the inside.”
Isal and the other drakes that had been sent to relieve Dorn and his team all perked up at this. “The queen told you that?” they asked in unison.
“Of course she told him that,” Tilvan said, folding his wings. “She also told Dorn the same thing. We’re supposed to be guarding this thing, and how can we do that without a basic knowledge of how its mind works?”
Viar nodded in agreement. “That’s the first thing you need to know when guarding someone. The next one is their habits, but since this thing is still pretty new to all of us, we’re kind of in the dark on that one.”
The other knights all looked to him, as if expecting him to go on, though Viar didn’t look like he wanted to continue this conversation at all. He instead chose to walk back to the fire pit to inspect his gear. Finally, after a few moments of Sir Viar being completely closed-beaked, Isal’s curiosity got the better of him. “Well? How is it like us?”
Viar looked surprised at that. “It what?”
“The creature! We were just talking about it, and you suddenly started doing your best Solar Slave impression!” Isal snapped at him.
Viar shook his head before he drew his sword and began to carefully inspect the edge for any nicks. “It’s not my place to gossip,” he said, as if that ended that.
It didn’t, naturally. If anything, it made the other drakes all the more curious. “You can’t honestly just leave it at that,” Isal said, tapping his claw on the ground.
Viar took a look around at the assembled drakes, before he sighed in defeat. With one quick motion, he sheathed his blade, then reached into his belt pouch and pulled out a folded square of paper. The others all moved behind the senior knight and watched him unfold it to reveal an old-fashioned, black and white photo of a group of dakri, all gathered around the carcass of a dead boar. Isal quickly recognized a much younger Viar in the photo, and by extension, guessed at who the others were. “Your family, I gather? Was that taken during your first boar hunt?”
Viar just looked at it for a while before he folded it and took out his blade and whetstone again. “Yeah, but that’s not important. What’s important is that this thing had its own family and its own life. The queen made it clear that she didn’t understand half of what she saw in the creature’s head, but she did gather this much: It’s incredibly homesick.” The others were quiet as Viar slowly began running the whetstone over the edge of his blade, his hands as steady as a mountain, even as his voice began to crack. “She didn’t tell me much, but from what I’ve heard, I can easily guess why it doesn’t care that it’s under armed guard. It most likely only cares about one thing at this point, seeing as how everything it loves and cares about is forever out of reach.”
Sir Mor looked towards the cliff’s edge, before giving his superior officer a questioning look. “And what’s that, Sir?”
Viar looked up, before he looked back down at his blade, his stare boring into his reflection as he thought about what he had guessed. “It’s an alien, so it’s entirely possible it thinks in a completely different way than us, but I know what I would want, if our places were reversed,” he said, his eyes finally leaving his reflection as he went back to sharpening. “If I were the creature, I would want revenge.”

Hey, sorry about missing yesterday. My babies kept me up all night, and I turned off my alarms to get some sleep during the day, including the one that told me to post a new chapter. What's worse is that I woke up sick, so that's me with egg on my face!
Anyway, here's the links for my books, in case you want to skip the drip-feed and just get right into the meat and potatoes of my story. Thanks for reading, and any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I love to hear how I can improve!

2023.05.29 01:55 muffincult Should I stop cooking for my husband?

So A few months ago I started cooking meals for my family most night. We are always so busy with work and school I never really made an effort and we kinda just snacked and my daughter would make Mac n cheese my husband would make a pizza or something and I would have a lean cuisine.
But I decided to start making dinner for everyone, sit down at the table and all that just a normal family dinner. Sometimes I would have my parents over too. I haven’t really cooked a lot in the past so I’m still learning.
I’ve had some flops but I’m getting a lot better to the point where my mom is like oo can you make that thing you made a few weeks ago? Or my dad would be like could you give me the recipe for that? I cooked something and my daughter was like can you cook this on my birthday? So I’m assuming I’m not terrible.
Anyway my husband is super picky and ALWAYS has something to say about my food. Even when he likes it. He will be like oh you could of done this different etc. which I guess he considers constructive criticism but I take it personally. And when he really doesn’t like something he’s like yeah I’m not gonna eat this.
The thing is I’ve told him numerous times please look up recipes and tell me what you think would be good so I can make it. He won’t do that though.
So tonight really was the straw that broke the camels back. I made marinated and tenderized steak with a red wine reduction, pearled couscous with garlic and basil and a salad. I asked my husband how he wanted his steak cooked and he said rare.
So I cooked it rare. I sat it down in front of him and he’s like yeah I’m not eating this, ok so I put it back on the stove and cooked it medium rare. I said does that look better he said yes. He ate a bite and was like yeah I don’t like this. I asked him does he want it well done he said no. So I’m like ok what do you want me to do then?
He said nothing I’ll just eat it anyway. So I told him no if you don’t like it just give it to the dogs or something. And I started getting upset because I’m like nothing I ever do is good enough and I started crying and he was like why are you getting upset? Your food is great I love it is that what you want to hear?
Not to mention steak is fucking expensive. And I told him ok, unless it’s something I know for a fact that you like I’m not cooking for you you can fend for yourself because I’m tired of you wasting food 90 percent of the time.
He was pissed off and told me no I’ll eat whatever you put in front of me and I was like no I don’t want you eating something you don’t like and then bitching to your buddies at work how I suck at cooking.
How do I not be an asshole about this? Am I being rational?
TDLR: my husband hates my cooking should I just stop cooking for him and am I being an asshole for doing that.

2023.05.29 01:54 Pleasant_Performer68 Rant on SDC trucks

I just transferred to a new store about a week ago and I am a receiving associate and everything has been good except for the fact that they drop the SDC trailers and most people would probably prefer that the problem is with only 3 docks the rdc takes one the SDC takes one and one is open for receiving so it leaves the pallet trailer out back which makes it so you can’t drive a machine in it so you have to push the pallets back and they get caught on shit and fall over this happened today and I had to unload have a trailer full of pallets by hand if I could bring the slip machine in there there would be no problem but the other receiving associates think it’s great cause we don’t have to touch the SDC then make me go out and deal with the pallet trailer seems like a problem that exists out of laziness but in turn makes way more work

2023.05.29 01:54 Pheobe0228 I made a huge mistake...helped my ADHD 16yr old rescue a dog.

So I have a very strange situation. My ex and I live across the street from one another. We have for the last 6 years, for the most part it goes well. A couple years ago I wanted to get a dog really bad, he wanted me to have one too so he even built a really nice fence in the back yard at my house. When it came time to pick out a dog, I ended up with two. I couldn't choose so they both came home with me. One my 16yr old picked out Loki and I just loved both, so they came home with me. When we got home my ex was insistant that the dogs stay together, I was hoping Loki would live with my daughter and Charlie could live with me. It didn't go that way so I just sucked it up and did what he wanted. It was my choice to bring home 2. He works from home 4 days, in the office one day so he watches them when he's home. These are not outdoor all day kind of dog, stuck in a kennel or on a chain they are family dogs. They gave poodle in them. I spoil them they are like our kids. Unfortunately my daughter tried to connect with Loki but she see's how Loki has dreamy eyes when she looks at me, and she felt jealous. .. (yeah they are both girls with boy names. LoL.) So she never gave it a ton of effort to connect with Loki it was off and on.
About a year and a half later my dogs are trained, they never chewed on shoes or did anything to terrible because we always bought them bully sticks, toys or whatever. . They have had bad dog days but nothing terrible.. anyways one night there was this sound in the middle of the night when I stayed over there, it woke me up it was Christmas time so it was cold as hell outside. When I finally figured out what it was it was the cutest little husky shepard mix had crawled under his porch trying to find warmth about 7 weeks old. My ex decided to bring him in, put him in the garage and keep him warm. We didn't know if he had anything so we kept him seperate from my dogs until we got him checked out. I put signs up. My daughter in-law came over and instantly tried to give him away before we had a fair chance to even try to find the rightful owner. We found a dog before and found the owner this way. I posted on Fb and neighborhood app. My daughter would go out to the garage and spend hours with him and begging to keep him as her own.. I can't afford to take on another dog.
I didn't want another dog so I told her if she was able to talk her Dad into keeping him there is no way shape or form I could be financially responsible for this dog. My ex makes 5x what I do. He took him to the vet, got him all ready to go, then bam he got ring worm but that went away pretty quickly. He spend tons of money on him again and he still has to get him fixed. My daughter recently got a job, she's rarely home and when she is home she doesn't spend a whole ton of time with him. Her room is always a mess. The dogs usually stay at his house whenever we go somewhere. When it's her weekend to be at her Dad's he keeps her dog over there, when its my weekend I keep him with me. Every time he leaves his house the dog chews on the furniture, the vertical blinds get eaten up so on, once he came home to his throw pillows all over the house torn apart. And this pisses him off ROYALLY to the point I am scared for the dog. I told him he needs to kennel him but for some reason he won't do it. He thinks its cruel but apparently copral punishment isn't.
When I have them here, at night I kennel Loki with Sammy because they get along well then Charlie sleeps in my room. I don't give him leeway to chew on anything when I'm not in the room. My family thinks I am a monster for seperating them but they don't complain, whine or anything they dont seem to care.
Idk what to do. I was out today and it happened again, he let them all stay the night at his house last night because Sammy was there, he took her to work, when he got home his blinds were chewed up again, he had just replaced 3 yesterday. He likes Sammy when Sammy is being watched but doesn't like him on the couch ir bed because he sheds everywhere and my daughter isn't responsible enough to brush him daily nor is she home that much. She has him at the end of his rope with animals since she also has a cat, she has had a snake and a hampster the snake died the hamster got murdered by Jay kitty and so on, he is fed up.
I feel guilty because now she's saying she wants to go in the Army after graduation, she's in JORTC. She can't leave that dog with him. He may kill him. I wished he would just kennel him in the house, they have one I bought for the girls, they don't need it they are pretty trustworthy if the house is picked up as it always is in the main area. My ex is a clean freak but not my daughter.
I feel so bad because I stuck up for her but he has turned into a nightmare over there. Some days she even ignores him because of his behavior, she says he ejaculated on her bed ? Idk what's that all about, didnt ask questions. My girls don't shed tiny hairs everywhere like he does, my ex loves my two but I cant say he hates him but he hates him when hes bad.
She begged for a service dog but is nowhere near being able to train him for that. He is only maybe 6 or 7 months old. Cute as a button but noone wants to touch him because you get covered in hair. We do love on him though. I call him my grand puppy and give him loves, he thinks he's more important to me then my girls, lol. I try to give him love too. He is a wrecking ball in the bathtub and my ex demands baths once a week or every two weeks. This dog always stinks. She hates giving him baths because hes to hard to contain.
On top of it all, I feed my dog premium dog food. Now that Sammy eats more then half of what my two medium size dogs eat, I ask him for half, 35.00 when I but that 37 lb bag that used to last a month and a half, now last 3 weeks. I told her to buy him a slow feeder. He is trying to talk me into going to the cheapest food there is, I can't do that for my dogs because I want them healthy for the long haul. I pay for insurance in Charlie, he pays for Loki this started when they were babies and Sammy doesn't have insurance, noone wants to pay for it. Well I can't thats why he paid for Loki.
Suggestions anyone? We do love Sammy but I feel like I messed up for sticking up for her. We dont believe in taking in a dog then giving him away but right now my ex is wishing he would get run over.
She has a job, she doesn't want to pay for anything related to him except the fun stuff. We buy treats, bully sticks are EXPENSIVE, beef cheek rolls and so on for them to chew on. She doesn't want to help out for the 20.00 bottle of shampoo I bought that's perfect for her dog but not mine, it will whiten them. He is white already. I'm not going to favor my dogs over Sammy because I love Sammy too but honestly I think giving him away would be best. Am I am monster? Also, my 23 yr old son lives with my ex, he works nights so he watches the dogs when my ex has to go into the office. Less crap gets torn up. He is moving out Thursday and my ex is on a project where he has to go out of town several days this month. It not an option to have them in my house. We don't want them roaming around the yard all day in the heat when everyone is gone, they dig craters in the yards and I won't have that. I feel like getting a huge outdoor kennel like at Costco is just aweful. We have hot summers and cold winters. Idk what to do. We did t have any problems before Sammy came along. I feel like a shit mother. I'm not even sure if it would break her heart to find the right home for Sammy at this point. How can I convince him to kennel the dog when he's not home? Maybe I will just set it up in the kitchen when we start to go somewhere. Idk. I know it sounds like he hates Sammy, he really doesn't but something has to change. We love our daughter and want her to have the things she wants but I messed up on this one.

2023.05.29 01:54 FullmetalDovahkiin Looking for members for a pop punk/metal band

Greetings you wonderful people! We are looking for some talented musicians to join our online band. We do what can best be described as pop punk/metal. Think Blink-182 meets System of a Down. Some feel good punk music with a bit of OOMF although we’re open to straying from the sound a bit. Currently we have a vocalist and myself doing guitar, drums, and bass. We would like to add more members for dynamics, creative input, an even work load, and to meet some cool people. 
What were looking for
  1. Recording Quality - The most important thing here is being able to get a good quality recording from the source to whoever will be doing the mixing. If it’s poor quality, we won’t have a song to mix.
  2. Creativity - We’re willing to overlook skill as long as you can be creative and come up with some cool and unique ideas. As you will hear we aren’t afraid to get a little weird with things. So, feel free to let your freak flags fly.
  3. Skill - Not as important as the others but definitely helps to set you apart and help you/us stand out.
  4. Mixing experience - NOT a requirement but it would help incredibly. I feel our biggest flaw is in our mixing abilities which are rather amateur.
  5. Located in the US or UK - again NOT a requirement but it would help for two reasons. One, time zones get tricky across countries. Two, in the possible chance we play shows/make videos it would be easier to get us together but we’re mostly doing this to write cool songs with cool people.
As far as roles, we are looking for a drummer, two guitarists OR one guitarist and one bassist. I would prefer to continue to play bass myself (my strings are purple and I’m very attached to them) but if I have to pick up a guitar spot I don’t mind as I have 20 years XP on guitar and like...6 months on bass. Also, we would love to bring in a female singer for more vocal dynamics.
How to Audition
You have two options here. I have provided a song we have been working on (Keep in mind this is song isn't 100% finished OR mixed the best, again I struggle with that a little) and you are to record your rendition with your own flare and tweaks OR do the same thing but with a song you enjoy playing again make sure you add your own twist. As you send your audio file over (however you wish to send it to us but we prefer googledrive as of right now) just explain what you did for auditioning, your experience, introducing yourself, and so on. And just to prove you read all of this, tell us your favorite breakfast cereal. 
The audition song can be found here if you wish to download it and play along again feel free to use another song
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1McxJikJRcr467OVtnEUpcsUdwy9qJTnD/view?usp=sharing
Song Info:
Tempo: 150/160 (gonna be honest I can't remember but I know it's one of these two)
Tuning: Drop D
Key: D Minor
Overview
We’re not necessarily looking to make a career out of this or get internet famous, we really just want to make some good music with some cool people. Honestly, we have been plagued with local musicians that either don’t have the time or the drive so we decided to find strangers on the internet. If you want a fun music project as a creative outlet and meet some cool people then I think you’ll be perfect. The only other thing I wanna touch up on is there is no room for hate of any kind here. Yes, I’m beating around the bush but come on it’s 2023, leave those archaic views in the 50’s where they belong. If you’re feeling unsure to send your audition we accept any and all people regardless of age, gender, race, religion, and pastry preference. Lastly, if you need some tips/tutorials or have questions I am willing to help. Get to it and I look forward to meeting you all!

2023.05.29 01:54 Hylas_Drowning PMDD & DYSPHORIA

Hey guys,
I get really bad pms/pmdd… for like way too long before it starts. I’m pre-T, non-binary but leaning masc. during these days my dysphoria just takes over my life. I know it’s also general depression but I just feel like an obsessed maniac who can only think about gender and nothing else. I’m indecisive about T for medical reasons and I’m a singer, but I’m so hurt by being misgendered nonstop. I’d love to be more androgynous and masc, but then once I’m done w the PMDD phase I sorta get over myself and get back to life… then I worry I’m just bonkers… anyone relate? Did you feel like before you transitioned fully you wavered almost in a bipolar level way?

2023.05.29 01:54 I_am_Fang_Yuan_ Fang yuan fights God for Eternal Life

In a small isolated space where everything and nothing existed at the same time
no dao marks existed in that space yet that space seemed to encompass all dao marks
Fang yuan enters through Chaos
For the very first time since the Creation of All Existence
A Man stepped where God resided
In a black space where no light existed
Fang yuan took step after step
Fang yuan was expressionless, unmoved, undisturbed
his eyes shined as he seemed he was about to end it all once and for all
God knew Fang yuan had come
Fang yuan walks most of the path, sounds of steps continue until both sound and silence disappear
At the end of the path, Fang yuan looks and finds a jester
a 20m tall jester floating in empty space in a meditative yet relaxed position
Fang yuan smiles "so it was you? I always knew it."
Indeed Fang yuan had met this jester when he was about to transmigrate into the gu world but was made to forget him
it was the jester that was responsible for his transmigration
this Joker had been the entity behind all existence
a slight smile appeared in the multicolored jester :
"Its been a while Fang yuan, I was expecting you"
"I was the one that created all the worlds, who created and nurtured you, shouldn't you bow down to me?"
Fang yuan smiles
"No you are not God, imposter, am I right?
I have already awakened millions of years ago so I know the Truth"
the joker smiled "indeed I am merely the manifested aspect of God"
"the Unmanifested aspect of the Supreme is the Original cause, the Unmanifested that lies beyond the senses, space and time is God tho God does not control the Universes nor creates them, I do, he does contain them
But I am God as well, only I control material existence, I remember mortals in your original world gave me a name"
Fang smiled "The Demiurge"
"Indeed, I am the Universal God and contain all the demi-gods and am the creator of creation but I was born and I emanated myself from the immutable Absolute : God"
"Fang yuan you yourself are but a Demi-god, what can you even do? all your gu do not work here, without gu what are you? what can you even do?
hmph hahahaha
you will die here today fang yuan hahaha
your journey end here hahaha"
The Jester moved in an insane burst of speed that Tore both Space and Time, Cracking them like Glass
in 2.547 nanoseconds the jester was in front of Fang yuan and steps on him!!
Immediately the jester kills him!
the Jester laughs at his corpse, puddles of blood and fang yuan's dead body lay at the jester's feet
his brain was splatered all over the place! blood pouring out and all bones appearing, even his soul had dissapated!
"hahaha is this what you wanted Fang yuan, is this your Eternal Life??!! Hahaha
Even I dont have Eternal life!! Eternal life belongs to no one, it does not exist! I lived hundreds of trillions of years, one who has barely lived millions of years dares to show his face in front of me?!!"
The joker steps on his corpse, and keeps splatering blood all over himself, at this point fang yuan was nothing but a minced corpse
"Hahahaha is this all you can do Fang yuan!! hmph boring!"
Far away, Far far away, where the jester was floating before
an invisible hand penetrates through space and time and pulls a White rainbow blue cube that rotated, stabilised and rerotated endlessly on top of the hand!
this cube seemed to encompass everything, it seemed it was the Thing that was animating all the universes, even the jester and all the creatures even fang yuan borrowed his existence from this One rainbow blue Cube which was letting out light and dancing in all sorts of ways
Fang yuan felt it!!!
ITS POWER WAS INFINITE, INEXHAUSTIBLE AND UNLIMITED!!
even the strong hand holding it Trembled!
the man stood expressionless floating high in space holding this cube
The jester immediately reacts "YOU BASTARD!! YOU DARE!!"
The jester tho outwardly screamed was completely calm inside
he had tried for Trillions of years tried absorb its power but couldn't and had used Creation to help simulate ways to absorb all existence to crack the cube and Attain Eternal Life!
For that cube was God itself!
the cube was dancing, crackling with electricity, it seemed being removed and touched triggered it!
the jester spoke : "HAHAHAHAHA You think you can use the power of the Eliacube!!! I have tried for trillions of years only able to use to create and unable to use and absorb it doesn't work!!"
the Giant jester laughed even harder "Hmph! I want you to try! even now I can't completely control it!! yet you think you can!! hmph!!"
Fang yuan stood expressionless, unmoved, undisturbed by these words!
Fang yuan had no way to control this Cube which encompased existence and even non-existence
this Cube was God, how could mere creation use it? there was no way this was possible
the cube was held in one hand, the other hand however was free
Fang yuan immediately STABBED his OWN CHEST!! AND REMOVED HIS OWN HEART !!!
The jester was completely shocked! What is Wrong with this MADMAN!! this guy is Suicidal demon!! his intuition tho warned him and he ran fast to catch fang yuan
A slight smile appeared in Fang yuan's face, his INSANITY was absolutely obvious
THIS MAN WAS ABOUT TO RISK IT ALL!
He did not care about his life, he was AT THE LAST STEP! How could he HESITATE NOW OF ALL PLACES??!!!
FANG YUAN IMMEDIATELY AFTER REMOVING HIS HEART FORCES THE CUBE IN THE HOLE IN HIS CHEST AND PLACES THE CUBE EXACTLY WHERE HIS HEART USED TO BE!!
Immediately upon touching his chest
THE CUBE EXPLODES WITH ENDLESS ENERGY AND ENGULFES BOTH THE JESTER AND FANG YUAN IN ENDLESS LIGHT !!
IMMEDIATELY UPON THIS INTERFERENCE, ALL UNIVERSES WERE DESTROYED AND DISAPPEARED IN THIN AIR !!!
THE GU WORLD, PLANET EARTH AND THE HUMAN WORLD CEASED TO EXIST IN A SPLIT SECOND!!
ADMIST THE LOUDEST CRACKLING SOUNDS OF ELECTRICITY AND ENERGY WAS A FANG YUAN THAT WAS LOSING CONTROL !!
HE COULD SEE NOTHING, CONTROL NOTHING, HE SENSED HIS OWN LIFE WAS ABOUT TO END, THIS WAS IT, THERE WAS NO WAY HE COULD SURVIVE THIS!!!
TEARS BEGAN TO WELL UP SUBCONSCIOUSLY IN FANG YUAN's EYES!!
IT SEEMED HE FAILED AFTER ALL! HE WAS FOOLISH HOW COULD HE THINK OF ATTAINING SOMETHING THAT DOESNT EXIST?!!
ALL THESE THOUGHTS RIPPLED ON THEIR OWN IN HIS MIND AND HEART
YET WITHIN THIS ABYSS, THIS BOTTOMLESS DARK, A SPARK CAME INTO BEING INTO FANG YUAN'S BEING
"HOW COULD I GIVE UP LIKE THIS!! NEVER WILL I EVER KNEEL!! ETERNAL LIFE IS MINE!! I WILL GET IT NO MATTER WHAT!! LET THIS BODY AND SOUL BE BURNT ASUNDER!!! LET THIS ENTIRE WORLD DIE!! I DONT CARE!!!"
A Scream that went from the absolute bottom of his Being was about to EXPLODE OUTWARDS and FANG YUAN WITH HIS ENTIRE EXISTENCE ON THE LINE TRIED TO TRY TO MERGE AND CONTROL THE CUBE!!
"AAAAA"
"MORE I NEED MORE !!"
"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA"
SWEAT AND BLOOD SPLATERED, ALL BONES WERE BROKEN!!
"MOOOOOORE MORE MORE MORE MORE !!!!!!!!"
"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAHAHAHAAAH
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA"
"WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA"
BLOOD AND SWEAT, BONS BROKEN, SPIRITUAL ENERGY ABOUT TO BE COMPLETELY EXHAUSTED YET FANG YUAN DOES NOT RELENT !!! AND HE GOES AGAIN!!!
"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA"
"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA"
THE ENTIRETY OF EXISTENCE AND NON-EXISTENCE RIPPLED, ALL SPACE AND TIME CRACKLED, THE CUBE ITSELF SEEMED TO GO INTO IMBALANCE AND ABOUT TO EXPLODE
FANG YUAN LITERALLY IMPLICATED ALL EXISTENCE AND NON-EXISTENCE!! THERE WAS A HIGH CHANCE THE CUBE ITSELF WOULD EXPLODE ITSELF AND DESTROY EVERYTHING THAT WAS LEFT!! INFINITY ITSELF WAS ABOUT TO BREAK!!!
*BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM*
EVERYTHING CRACKLED!! EXPLODED!!! HOT AIR GUSHED OUT OF EVERYWHERE !!!
................................................
........................................
................................
......................
IN PURE NOTHINGESS LAY A NEARLY DEAD JESTER !!
THE JESTER FOR THE FIRST TIME EXPERIENCED THE ABSOLUTE MADNESS THAT FANG YUAN's ENEMIES EXPERIENCED!!
the Jester was SCARED for his Life! But he was still alive now, how could a God level die so easily? tho dead could have happened sending chills down his back
Fang yuan had died. his pursuits and madness had in the end ended him, it was inevitable, all people who encountered Fang yuan had known this day would come
tho the Jester Hated Fang yuan to the Absolute Core, he admired how Courageous this man is and this experiment could be the Key to attaining Eternal life!
The jester goes forward to retrieve the Rotating Cube which was far away,
Moving Through all the Clouds of Smoke to the cube
Each step had a resounding sound for the Jester was a Giant
the more the joker walked, the more clearly he could see, Finally the cube was near
The jester takes one more Step
*BOOoM*
IN A FLASH, a HUGE UNFATHOMABLE EXPLOSION of Inertia and Hot air Spread, it pushed EVERYTHING, Completely OBLITERATING ALL TIME AND SPACE!
IMMEDIATELY, A MAN APPEARS ON THE HORIZON, FLOATING IN MID AIR, RAINBOW RUNES RIPPLING ALL OVER HIS BODY!!
RAINBOW SHINING EYES,
IN THE CAVE OF HIS HEART A RAINBOW CUBE RESIDED!!
THIS CUBE WAS GOD!
RAINBOW VEINS WERE ALL OVER FANG YUAN'S BODY!! AS HE SCREAMED IN ABSOLUTE AGONY AND ABSOLUTE PAIN !!!!
"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA"
"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA"
"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA"
"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA"
Ahhhhhhhhhhh Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Ahhhhhhhhh
FANG YUAN WAS IN SO MUCH PAIN THAT HE WISHED TO JUST DIE !!!
WITHOUT EVEN CARING HE USED HIS OWN FINGERNAILS TO DIG HIS OWN EYES OUT AND DIG HIS OWN FACE AND HIS OWN SKIN!!!
THE JOKER STOOD IN ABSOLUTE HORROR FANG YUAN HAD DIGGED ALL HIS SKIN AND WAS ONLY MUSCLE NOW COMPLETELY RED!!
HE EVEN BEGAN TO DIG HIS OWN MUSCLES!! HE COULD NOT SEE!! HE COULD NOT HEAR!!
THE CUBE REMAINED ROTATING IN THE CAVE OF HIS HEART, IT SEEMED IT HAD COMPLETELY MERGED INTO FANG YUAN AND WAS NOW HIM BUT THE PAIN DID NOT STOP AT ALL NOR DECREASE!!!
THE JESTER WAS COMPLETELY SHOCKED AND THOUGHT IT WOULD END HERE HE COULD DIG FANG YUAN'S HEART ANYWAY!!
BUT A SECOND LATER, HE WAS COMPLETELY WRONG, THE CUBE IN HIS HEART WAS ENDLESSLY ROTATING, STOPPING AND ROTATING AGAIN
BUT THIS TIME EACH TIME IT ROTATED IT WOULD LET COMPLETE HUGE ENERGY EXPLOSION DIRECTED OUTWARDS INTO THE SPACE WHERE THEY RESIDES
*BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM*
ONE STREAM OF ENERGY WAS LAUNCHED AND IMMEDIATELY HALF THE SPACE WAS BROKEN
ONLY ONE HALF REMAINED!! IT SEEMED THIS NEXT STREAM OF ENERGY WOULD BE THE END FOR THE JESTER
THE JESTER MOVED HE HAD TO STOP HIM NOW OR IT WOULD REALLY THE END!!
THE JESTER MOVES ABSOLUTELY RAPIDLY AS HE WAS GOD LEVEL, HE REACHES JUST AS HE WAS ABOUT TO ATTACK
THE CUBE MOVES BY ITSELF AND LAUNCHES A STRIKE IN SELF PROTECTION!! A STREAM OF ENERGY 100TIMES THE STRENGTH OF A GOD!!
JUST MILISECONDS BEFORE HIS DEATH, ONE THOUGHT "WHAT HE ACTUALLY CONQUERED THE CUBE??!! THE CUBE IS DEFENDING HIM!! WHY!! WHYYY!!! I TRIED IT MYSELF AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA"
THE STRIKE IMMEDIATELY HITS AND OBLITERATES THE ENTIRE REST OF SPACE TIME AND THE JESTER COMPLETELY DIES AND VANISHES FROM EXISTENCE!!! THE END OF THE DEMIURGE!!
THE GOD OF CREATION HAD DIED!!
FANG YUAN DID NOT KNOW WHAT HAPPENED HE WAS STILL TEARING HIS OWN MUSCLE TILL ARRIVING IN THE BONES
THIS PAIN DID NOT STOP FOR EVEN A MILISECOND
IT CONTINUED FOR A LONG TIME, A VERY LONG TIME
seconds turned into minutes, minutes turned into hours, hours turned into days,
days turned into months turned into years turned into hundreds of years
turned into thousands of years turned into tens of thousands of years turned into hundreds of thousands of years
turned into millions of years turned into tens of millions of years of absolute agony, pain worse than death and ever existing
tens of millions of years turned into hundreds of millions of years
turned into a billion years
turned into tens of billions of years, turned into hundreds of billions of years!! it seemed it would be endless, fang yuan at all times stayed awake into absolute agony and the biggest pain in existence, pain for all eternity
a hundred billion turned into a trillion years
a trillion years turned into tens of trillions of years
10 trillion years, 20 trillion years, 30 trillion years, 40 trillion years, 50 trillion years, 60 trillion years, 70 trillion years, 80 trillion years, 90 trillion years
91, 92, 93, 94, 95, 96, 97 trillion years, 98 trillion years, 99 trillion years
FINALLY 100 TRILLION YEARS LATER !!
THE PAINS STOPS!
THE CUBE COMPLETELY INTEGRATES INTO THE SOUL AND BODY OF FANG YUAN AND THE CUBE BECOMES FANG YUAN!
Fang Yuan remains falls into Unconsciousness, Fang yuan had died
BUT IMMEDIATELY THE CUBE WORKS TO RESSURECT ITS HOST FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE REMAINING LIFE IN FANG YUAN
INSANTLY 100 TRILLION YEARS OF PAIN WERE WASHED AWAY BY THE GOD CUBE IN AN INSTANT!!
FANG YUAN FINALLY WAKES UP!!
a pair lips moved and a voice echoed
"Always aspired Soaring beyond Existence,
Taking large strides with unwavering Determination,
Through the vicissitudes of life,
Through endless blood, sweat and tears
The Perseverance in my heart finally yields my Goal
I finally behold Beauty
the Jewel in my heart offers Eternal life
this my - the Reverend insanity's Absolute Supremacy!"
Rainbow runes running all over his body
Absolute Power and infinity pumping through his blood and body
Fang yuan continues and recites another poem
"I am God, the Absolute. Of this there is no doubt.
I am One with no other, the only Truth, the single essence.
I am Eternal, formless, solitary, Endless.
I am the Supreme Reality, forever whole and undivided.
Before anything was, I Am. I never am not.
my nature is Absolute Freedom
I am forever free and boundless, no beginning, no middle, no end.
I alone exist! Limitless, eternal, all-encompassing!
Truly, I alone exist, all-pervasive and never-ending!
I am eternal and omnipresent, undivided, all-pervasive,
and without any dimension whatsoever.
I am One. I am Absolute.
I neither come nor go
I have no inside or outside
Not bound by such dualities, I light Eternity!
I have no origin nor does anything originate from me
Not bound by such dualities, I light Eternity!
Not bound by birth or death, I light Eternity!
Not bound by time or space, I light Eternity!
Not bound by being or non-being, I light Eternity!
Not subject to creation and destruction, I light Eternity!
I alone exist! Limitless, eternal, all-encompassing!
I am the Absolute, the One Reality!
To what should I offer my devotion?
I am Absolute Perfection, the absolute essence beyond space and time, existence and non-existence
I have no desires, I am All that Is – Forever free and boundless!
I am the Supreme Being! formless! unbounded! limitless! Infinite! untouched by anything!
Supremely pure and Free, absorbed in infinite Bliss
So do I recite this poem and abide in my Beauty Forevermore”
As soon as Fang yuan finished,
instantly,
All the remaining existence dissolved and disappeared forever"
It is an Eternal Mystery wheter it was Fang yuan or God that spoke those words, but perhaps both
A Tale and journey to Eternity, so does this Tale reveal Absolute Truth.
----END---

2023.05.29 01:53 No-Act-4375 Failure isn't final

Just binged after being binge free for 7 weeks. I refuse to let this slip become a relapse. A binge is just a binge. A single binge doesn't undo all the work and healing I put in over the last 50 days. Recovery isn't linear. I slipped today but I get right back up tomorrow starting with a clean slate. Just thought I'd share to remind anyone struggling, that you can always get back up again.

Hey there 😄 Thought it put a post up and give a bit of detail about myself.
I'm a 26 year old brit who's currently living in the North-East in England, in a town called Middlesbrough, not the most enchanting place but it'll certainly do 😂

Outside of gaming, I really love animals and plants, and will happily sit and talk about them. I have 2 pet birds who I adore. But I adore all animals so please do send photos of yours 👀
I'm also somewhat of a technology geek. I absolutely love learning about machines, how they work, what they do etc. I built my own PC and love tinkering and upgrading, although my bank account doesn't 😭

I am extremely LGBT+ friendly as I'm a gay man myself. I'm very accepting of people and don't judge.
I'm also autistic and have ADHD so if I'm a little bad at making long conversations to begin with, please bare with me, I promise I'm trying! (I also apologise for my randomness 😭)
I have discord and the normal socials so I'm more than happy to move over to there once we've spoke on here a little. 😄

2023.05.29 01:51 xCobaltRainx AITA For Not Wanting to Become a Mormon?

I (27m) am an Atheist and I have a girlfriend (23f) whose family is very devoutly Mormon, the kind that don’t drink soda or go out and do anything on Sunday by rule. She was raised in this environment her entire life, her and her 7 siblings are all Members, her father was even a church Bishop for a time. This family patriarch is very controlling over the lives of her and her siblings, and she still lives at home. Despite this, she has always resisted the hardcore Mormonism that runs through her entire family; she swears, drinks and loves coffee, tries to get out of going to church on every Sunday, and has had premarital sex.
We started dating last year and got pretty serious pretty quick, she knew I was an Atheist from day 1, and told me the last thing she wants to do is try to convert me like her family has suggested (they know about what I am and are not fans).
Recently her very religious grandmother passed away to whom my girlfriend was very close. This reignited her desire to want to get married in one of her church’s Temples, which only the most faithful and active members can even step foot inside of. She now wants me to go through the process of becoming a member and receiving one of their special temple recommend cards that gives you access to the building so that we can get married there and “sealed” in the temple (whatever that means).
Needless to say, as a non-believer, I feel it would be extraordinarily difficult, if not impossible for me to put myself through this for someone that would even ask something this monumental. When I told her recently that I don’t think I’ll ever be able to do this for her, her immediate reaction was to say “well then I will just enjoy the time I have with you” before continuing to try to convince me to give this church a chance and convert.
I love her very very much, she’s an incredible woman, and she loves me just the same. But AITA for wanting her to give up on getting married in the temple so that we can actually have a future together? She’s smart enough to not buy into most of the BS and whenever she does defend this church it sounds like she’s just regurgitating the facts her father and preachers told her to say when people question the faith. She definitely doesn’t seem like the sort of member that would want to live the life of someone who has that temple recommend card.

2023.05.29 01:51 climbance Best off-wall exercises for climbing specific strength

Mostly opening this up as a discussion for what people believe has advanced their climbing the most in terms of the off-wall climbing elements. I'm already well versed in hangboarding, can hang +15kg on the Beastmaker middle edge, so am looking for others experience on what areas, niche of otherwise, they've found most effective.
My main tokens for the debate on what seem most useful:
-Weighted scapula holds: scapula is pretty integral in stabilising most upper body intensive positions, I find these to be more effective than pullups when you get to a high rep range
-Weighted hip flexor lunges: lower body strength tends to be neglected, strong legs and the ability to pull through your toe easily feels integral
Keen to hear more, have about 12 years of gym and 9 years of climbing so have tried a lot over the years so will reply on my experience to exercises if I have it!

2023.05.29 01:50 throwaway9999999931 Mental health proffesionals take on porn addiction

This is what the mental health proffesionals have told me about this.
The have told me that the issue I have is just a fixation and that porn and masturbation is normal, they are not bothered if I wank 2 times a day or even 4, they say they see people doing it over 10 times a day even. (then it's a problem)
They are not bothered by it really and just say it is normal, the main problem is the sort of porn you are watching they say.
I'm 24.
I think tbh, I'm better off talking with a therapist about all this than the mental health experts but there is like an 8 week wait till I can.
