2023.06.02 23:28 megaboto A Questionable Bargain - AaD

Terror gripped my mind as the gigantic bear started to charge towards me. My army critically wounded and the first of the few defensive lines compromised, outnumbered, overpowered, overrun... as I desperately searched for any options, a way to defeat my foe, temporarily or permanently, I just found myself running into a wall sooner or later - I could only delay, never actually stop this attack, even if I were to sacrifice my spawners for the temporary mana gain that could let me pump out more denizens, but even then they would just be crushed by the monstrosity, it's hatred alone enough to pierce my defences, a body so large it might uproot the tree itself and a mind behind it that would not stop at anything short of absolute annihilation. "Is this really so bad?" I thought with a weak voice, "Death just means I get resurrected again, does it not?" with every passing thought the idea seemed more enticing, before I came to the horrifying conclusion that I did not actually _know_ what would happen if I died here. I may have been resurrected before, but who is to say that I would have the same chance again, especially after failing, _giving up?_ This core is not just a body, it is the soul of mine - so if Deepholm takes it, _IS_ there even such a thing as heaven or hell for me? And would I accept giving up all of what I've built here to have all my progress and my memories wiped, damning this place to be taken by this abominable presence below?

No matter how I tried to argue, losing here was not an option I was willing to accept, and I could not sink even deeper in my contemplation as I was torn out of them by the bellowing roar that was far closer to me than previously, emitted by the Bear with the Jackalope on it's back, having shaped the bow into a spear and penetrating the thick hide to lodge it between the bones, using it both to delay it's advance and find grip on the movable Bulk which tried to shake her off. Focussing on the Scene, the bear was pelted by a mass of flechettes, though they did little more than slow it down as the few that actually pierced it's pelt were simply pushed out by the regenerating factor, leaving it enraged rather than hurt. And Jackie herself, despite her amazing growth and skill, was struggling to remain on it as it shook, before rolling over and crushing her with it's ~~meaty posterior~~ massive weight. Though I saw Jackie still living, protected by her Aether armor and fast sprouting vines that formed a dome, she was heavily wounded and exhausted by all these actions, the spear still lodged into the bear but proving to be as effective as a nail would against an elephant. Is this really all I can do? Was I doomed from the start, simply for having appeared above something that would not tolerate any other existence? Did I fail to plan for the invasion properly? Is it all my fault, that my loyal denizens, scions and all the people in my domain will die? was I that useless? I feel myself on the verge of tears as The slow but steady grind of Deepholm crushed all that I have, the battle brutal but ultimately hopeless.

Kelvin was making hasty progress through Deepholm's domain but I knew that he would not find the core in time, let alone reach it, and even if he did I doubt that it'll be found without resistance. Giorno was commanding the swindling troops to hold the line just that little bit longer for me to come up with something. Emmet was trying to rushing the production of concoctions, her supplies already low and the draughts providing little advantage against such an overwhelming foe, Alexa was in the air watching over her companions which were decimated just like that time when Deepholm tried to deprive me of another spawner, though this time around there would be no more survivors. And Jackie was still fighting tooth and nail to keep herself from being crushed as well as attempting to find some form of weak spot, some kind of special strike just to hurt the Colossus in any meaningful way yet found herself at her limit as no amount of effort provided any change, her strength waning by the second. Is this it?

I close my vision, praying to the heavens above, as the last of my hope bled out and I had nothing more left. "Heavens above, God, Guardian Angels, please help me! I do not want to die!"

The noise of the fighting continued, my denizens trying to hold off the endless horde

"Please, was it not your will that I find myself upon this planet, fulfilling the role of a dungeon that you so desperately wanted?"

Alexa cries out, having been hit by a sonic wave of the Bat scion, her equilibrium disturbed, falling to the surface

"Why do you do this to me, when I was just doing what I thought you wanted? Did I do something wrong?"

the secret laboratory is consumed in an explosion as the desperate mixing led to a fatal mistake, the chain reaction devastating the entire place

"How can you expect us to live in your image when you allow this to happen? We do all we can, and this is how you reward us?"

Giorno gives off a scared croak as the structures that serves as the defences started to collapse, leaving him under the collapsed rubble

"Do you not love your creations? Is this a punishment for some transgression that our ancestors committed?"

I feel Kelvin panicking as the last of his potions wore off with him nowhere near Deepholm's core


But the only answer I got was the crumbling of the makeshift fortifications as the badgers and bears started to flow in, tearing apart whatever defenders were left. I look to the stars shining upon us, their light providing no guidance


Jackie was lying on the ground, the Armor gone, the horns broken, lungs collapsed as her attempts at simply staying alive were weakening


The twins lie unconscious, exhausted of all their mana and wounds marring their body

*"save me"*


Without even an instance passing I find myself in outer space, or someplace akin to it, stellar bodies surrounding me like trees in a forest, so close yet so far away with their infinite beauty as the nebula in the back ground stretches it's orange, purple and all other facets of color into infinity. There is no up and down, no past or future, and for a moment I find myself left speechless at this arcane wonder I found myself in. There were no words spoken, no sound made and no interruption of the visage had, but a foreign thought reverberated through my mind. Safety. Power, to defend myself against those who would seek to subsume me. The knowledge and guidance to achieve victory once and for all. And a price to be paid, a prize of my choosing. Without even thinking properly, I answer with the one thing that comes to mind, something as priceless yet worthless to me as could be

"In turn, I offer you Deepholm. all it's territory, all it's land. It's scions, it's spawners, it's knowledge. I want none of it. And once the last piece of it's core was subsumed, the last of it's offspring removed, it shall all be yours"

not a sound came out of me, yet the offer was made, and the stars shone in acceptance. The universe itself seemed to expand and contract at the same, my vision focussing out. I let go of the reigns and let s̸̨̧̢̧͓͙̞͖̠̬̊͐͊̈́̅͋̈́̿͋̀̀͆̈́̋̋̓̐̽̀͜͠͝H̷̡̙̖̖̤̻̽͊̎̒̔̓͆̏̈́̎̉̉͛͝e̸̢̼̯̥͇̱͖̻̣͖͒̄̾̐̽̎̒̿̀̈̀̀̇̄̅̔̊̾̆̽͒̽̚̚͝y̸̖̲̯͂͌̅̈̀̕͘ take the lead ***control*** as I black out


Fire. Fire everywhere

That is all I could feel, despite knowing fully well that there was none. And yet, in spite of the calming words I was trying to tell myself, the unconvincing lies that it might be alright, any focus I tried to direct inwards was just torn apart by the horror instilled into me. The battle - no, _slaughter_ that was happening on the once almost idyllic dungeon, the fields and tree covered in blood, the screams of dying creatures of all kinds, and the marks of a battle soon lost, not a single able bodied scion in sight with the last spark resistance pushed back deeper and deeper. Though the comparison seemed far fetched in a sense, my brain lapped it up like a dog from the desert, the colossal bear's brutality and iridescent glowing blood floating around the battlefield almost having a morbid beauty about them if it were not for the uncanny resemblance with the past. I knew I had to get away, if not for my own safety then to report about the murdering that Deepholm has committed, but I was torn. Ignoring the fear that the execution caused, I still felt the need to do something to help Caldera in the back of my mind, as if I would lose something far more important than I could imagine if I just left her to die. Yet, what could I even do? I am merely an inspector, and I already almost got killed by Deepholm's assault when I rushed here to warn the mining party and then Caldera, and now it was an entire army that stood before me, not just some rogue animals. Looking at the exit while contemplating my options, I realised that fleeing was actually just as hopeless as fighting directly, as badgers have set up an uneasy line, disorganized but loyal enough to not abandon their post. Whatever miracle let me live those few days ago, it would not save me now, especially not now that they were on the lookout for anyone else fleeing and had air support as well. The only bit of grim spite I could find was the note that everybody else packed up already, hopefully able to make it back in time without being targeted by Deepholm and maybe even deliver my message for me.

Having no choice in this matter, I finally decided to do what I am best at, my mind slowly calming as I pull out my kanabō

"Let's see how many of you fuckers I can take down with me"

_well, this is it then_ were the thoughts that crossed my mind as I charged into certain death. _Sorry papa. I guess I won't survive for as long as you hoped me to_

strike by strike, I kept the badgers at bay, dodging the hits as I dished out my own, the dead bodies slowly mounting yet the amount of living ones piling up faster

I did not last long until the only thing left that I could do was keep the monsters that encircled me away, my stamina at it's limit. The badgers looked at me with hateful hunger in their eyes and approached me as my strikes slowed to a halt, my body unable to keep this up. A sneering sound akin to a laugh came out of them before they pounced on me and started tearing my flesh from my bones

_"damn. This will be our end then I guess. and you were such a good dungeon too, Calde-_

My thought was torn apart by the abyssal boom that swept over the battlefield, a deep emotion of wrongness griping my body at the shockwave that even the colossus seemed to be unsettled by. A deafening silence followed the wave that everybody witnessed yet nobody heard, every being that was not knocked out staring at the core's location with various looks of confusion, nausea and fear, as even the scions could not comprehend what they perceived. yet then it washed over us all at once, as if god himself has descended to give the answer

***this is not Caldera***

my body merely gave off a croak before I started throwing up, still standing straight and looking at the tree. The tree, once full of life, was now glowing a black light, the skies torn open from any clouds that could obscure the judging stars gazing upon us, and Hell was let loose upon earth

My vision swam together as bears and badgers burst, unholy tendrils and roots having taken their place, their blood watering the soil for the being to fester

The bats, once dominating the skies now were frozen in place, as if time itself has abandoned them, screaming silently into the void with contorted expressions of pain on their face.

the once overwhelming colossus started vibrating in unnatural frequencies, their body torn apart from the inside as their flesh warped and melted into forms I could not comprehend, regenerating factor turned malicious cancer then servant as the new hulk dragged it's boiling body like an amoeba, chunks left behind in it's wake that the dark one all too eagerly consumed.

and worst of all were the denizens, the once animalistic beings' faces contorted into an expression with hate that only gods could muster, their screeching rage tearing apart their voice bands as they rampaged, bodies spitting into pieces through the sheer fervour they fought with, yet still charging even as entire sections were missing.

above them all, 100 meters in front of the tree, a storm started to form, one of purple darkness and of magic not meant for this world, an unmoving vortex twisting matter around it like an artist may in a drawing, unnatural and impossible, an orange haze forming around it all the while

my brain felt like it was about to burst. the universe wept as reality itself screamed in rage, celestial rays piercing the ground at the transgression as I desperately tried to cover my eyes, only staining them with the blood flowing out, my body's wounds closing and sealing as my mind betrayed and consciousness failed me, my body writhing on the floor


"What an utter waste of mana"

Deepholm spoke to itself in third person, mentally pacing through the lavishly decorated sanctuary

"The interloper dares to enter his claimed space, and then resists elimination. INSOLENCE!"

the ground shook, the waves reverberating through his domain. a satisfied smirk appeared on his face. how could it hope to ever stand against him? Whatever trick it pulled against his voice, He would not fall twice for it. That cat it sent, it was a surprise to see it appear in his domain so suddenly, but taking care of it would not take long. Whatever plans it had were shattered with it's body, The sorcerer no match when in foreign domain, and the armies that were sent were probably not even a necessity as his scions alone could have uprooted the tree and destroyed the core.

"What an absolute waste"

It starts laughing, wondering how for even a moment it could have expected anything more. The rush of imminent victory fills his soul as he listens through his bond with the scions about the progress they made, how the last of the interloper's scions fell. How nothing was left to stand between it and defeat. The laughter silently swept across the room, showing itself as ripples through the steady flow of mana pulsing out of the core. This is what it meant to be powerful! He feels mighty! he feels great! he feels-


a scream washes through the dungeon, wiping away any semblance of happiness it felt just a moment before as it recoiled, writhing at the new sensation filling it's perception. Turning his attention at the source hatefully, it finds the once the warm, pulsating domain that laid there like prey gone, replaced with a wall of torment and hostile intent, cold and black as it stood there unmoving. Raging, Deepholm reached out to it's scions, a mistake that it would regret soon after. The moment it established a proper connection with the scions horrifying visions filled it's mind, from the entirety of the universe to a place that was not meant to exist, twisted and tangled in shapes that would cause any other mind to babble and break. As if their body was it's own, for that split second it felt itself growing larger, tendons and muscle mutating into new organs that kept up the painful expansion, as eternity itself stretched out before him, a never ending stream in any given singular instance.

Wailing with unknown emotions, the Dungeon retreated back to it's core, the momentary insight sweeping across him like a wave of acid, leaving festering wound across the entire mental space. "What..._IS_ that damned creation..?" words that came out heavy, tinted by a fear never felt before. The answers came like tendrils, stretching out from the foreign domain and piercing his, deepening the wounds that were already inflicted. "Impossible..." was all he could mutter as his body was pierced by the blackening roots, dividing him into pieces - the pain keeping Deepholm from drowning in the surrealism and impossibility of it all.

And there, where once the corpse of the scion lay, an orb of nothingness manifested itself, the orange glimmer on the outside being the singular thing that prevented all from collapsing in it, a momentary space of reality and it's absence melding together. He could only stare, no arrogance, anger or joy remaining as the space grew to the size of the cave, light seemingly bending around it as he stared into the abyss, and the abyss stared back. There was no need to speak to understand that this was it's end. There is no reality where it could resist, and so he whispered the only thing he could

"How..? " a single word uttered in complete helplessness at the happenings of an assault turned into utter annihilation. Orbs of Plasma from the void all burned him with their stare, beings that were not meant to be seen by the earth locked creature.

a single voice, spoken in a chorus answered










This hurts like Hell

I groan, my entire body aching as if I trained nonstop for seven days straight, opening my sore eyes slowly

This is Calderas domain... ugh, my head is killing me. Did she pull one of her tricks again and knocked me out so badly that I don't even know what I was doing?

I squint my eyes, the glaring sunlight doing wonders by making me feel even worse than before, as I shield my eyes with my hands, providing some much needed relief

"So much for hospitality" another groan, as the thought of Deepholm attacking shoots through me like lightning. The instant jump just makes me sit again as nausea overtakes me, the fast movement not serving well to my intentions of stopping this incessant headache. Looking around, I find the grass swaying in the wind, The tree still standing tall and the pond in the background. there were some denizens here and there, though all seemed to be asleep as me before. Affirming that there does not seem to be an immediate threat at least I focus inwards, letting my stagnant ki slowly come into proper motion, undoing the headache like untying a knot. Feeling somewhat better at least, I stand up, slower this time, and walk around. Though the relative silence is unusual, there seems to be no threat in sight. Deepholm's thralls are not to be seen, and any adventurers that could have gotten hurt must have departed already, as was planned.

suddenly a gust of wind came from below and I felt like throwing up again. Barely holding it in I look down, and stare at the small crack in the ground revealing a cave that looks like burning charcoal if it's fire was a dim purple. from it, I could feel nothing. My senses are still messed up and I cannot afford to find out what it is, so I do the next best action and start running towards Caldera's Core


I lie in a sea of nothingness, swimming through the molasse like a log on a slow river. Lack of duties, a space where there is no touch and I relax in a space of my mind's making...there is no better feeling one can get. I drift, slowly and without direction, my eyes closed in the infinite comforting darkness, faint smile on my face. Yet it was not meant to be. I frown, as I make out some sound. Nooooo...I don't want to wake up. Can't I just sleep five more minutes? Groaning, I turn around, the comfort slowly slipping away and making way for light. I don't think I can ignore the alarm for that long... Ugh, I guess I'll have to do the shitty daily routine then as I always do. As the light embraces me I open my eyes, just to realize that I have none. Ah, right. That happened.

focussing on the noise, I find myself at my core, a red woman yelling something something. Huh? what does she want? I focus on the noise made, slowly tuning my own hearing until I can hear the words

"...DERA! oh thank the shield you are awake!"

Huh? what's that? is it not missing a 'finally' before telling me how I was trying to cross the border with her and that bandit over here? wait, why does it sound like it's so important that I am awake?

sharpening my attention I look at the surroundings, realizing that the aforementioned red woman was Lydia, standing in my sanctum without anybody else to guard her, no frogs, no Jackie - and the network of information spread by Alexa was nowhere to be found

Panic mode settling in I rapidly skim around my domain, finding no invasion, no delvers, not a single thing happening. I quickly calmed down, partially, as the brain fog I woke up with still has not left me, and since this amount of quiet was far too unusual. Refocussing back to Lydia, she notices my attention immediately and asks "Do you know what is going on? I just woke up in the middle of the field, and there is no one to be found"

Trying to answer her I am once again reminded of the lack of voices, so I simply divert my attention to finding my scions, starting with Jackie. I realize mid search that maybe Giorno or Alexa are better choices but I can just search for them later, for now I'll just focus on the task at hand

Finding Jackie in the small space that is my former sanctum, I notice how her horns were shed, lying by the sides as she muttered in her sleep. Now how about you wake up? Of all my scions I expected you to be the least lazy one. In return she simply turned around and muttered something else, the intention this time being felt through the bond and translating roughly into "I do not want to be horny anymore, I just want to be happy". Oh haha, very punny. Well if that won't work, let's try... Hey Jackie, Lydia stole your strawberry chocolate cake and is eating all of it!

Immediately her form changed from 5 more minutes to ready to fight the world as she jumped up and immediately hit her head on the root above, slumping into a crouch as she held her head from the ache as I laughed my ass off, getting an upset glare from her. Her faked anger was short lived however as she touched her head repeatedly to find the horns she's used to missing, just to see them lying on the floor. Looking around frantically, wondering if this is some prank or if she is sick, I focused her and myself away from the distraction on Lydia still waiting anxiously at the core, telling Jackie to sprint over to her while I look for the other scions after a flash of sharing information on the current situation.

Before I was able to find any others however I felt a shudder run up my spine, as my clarity is regained yet the feeling of wrongness only intensifies - and now can actually be pointed somewhere. Right below me, where my border meets - Deepholm! switching over there immediately I find the source of that uneasiness, though it's not Deepholm, and I am unable to decide if what I see is more or less threatening

Right at my border the uneasiness identifies itself as emptiness that rubs against my border, a feeling similar to driving a car with maybe a centimetre of space between it and an obstacle to the left or right, except I also cannot see; not truly. Because what I find is a shrouded space, purple swirling vortexes and darkness, A place where mana may go in, but nothing ever comes out. Whatever it is, it seems to be the only thing there, so from what I can tell...

Deepholm is no more. And I do not know what to do with that.

2023.06.02 23:28 newellbrian Rant about the Blazers from ChatGPT.....pretty accurate

Look, I've had it up to here with this bullshit! The Portland Trail Blazers, man, they just can't catch a fucking break. Every damn time they start to gain some momentum, some fucking curse descends upon them and screws them over.
First of all, injuries! Are you kidding me? It's like the basketball gods have a personal vendetta against the Blazers. Every season, without fail, one of their star players goes down with a fucking injury. It's a never-ending cycle of pain and misery. Damian Lillard? Yeah, let's just make sure he has a nagging injury every damn year, just to mess with his head and crush his spirit.
And don't even get me started on the referees. I swear, they must have it out for the Blazers. It's like they have a secret meeting before each game, where they plot ways to screw over Portland. Questionable fouls, missed calls, and biased officiating are just par for the course when it comes to Blazers games. It's a fucking travesty.
But it's not just injuries and biased referees. No, no, no. The basketball gods also decided that the Blazers should have the most unforgiving playoff matchups imaginable. Year after year, they get matched up against powerhouses that seem unbeatable. It's like the universe is saying, "Hey Blazers, we're gonna give you the toughest possible opponent, just to make sure you don't make it past the first round. Enjoy!"
And let's not forget about the front office. The Blazers seem to have a knack for making questionable decisions when it comes to building a championship-caliber team. They sign mediocre players to big contracts, they fail to make impactful trades, and they consistently fall short in their pursuit of building a solid supporting cast around Lillard. It's infuriating!
So yeah, the Blazers get screwed. They get screwed by injuries, by biased referees, by tough playoff matchups, and by their own damn front office. It's a never-ending cycle of disappointment and frustration. And if you're a Blazers fan, it's enough to make you want to scream your fucking head off.

2023.06.02 23:28 Direct_Smoke1750 What are hosts protection against guests not reading and false claims?

So what are hosts protection to guests not reading and leaving low ratings?
So when guests don’t read listing description fully and book a place that doesn’t suit their needs but then leave less than 5 star reviews due to their lack of reading, what do they get out of it? Who does that help? How come hosts, even superhosts, don’t seem to have protection against such bs?
They’re also in the Airbnb subreddit showing each other how to tank host ratings by not saying much but leaving low ratings. This is so frustrating.

2023.06.02 23:28 kalithorne Recovery for dislocated knee and subsequent torn meniscus

Hey, I'm a seventeen year old girl (turning eighteen), who dislocated my left knee and subsequently tore my meniscus five months ago (exactly around new years). I went to the ER, where they diagnosed me, got a brace and full weight-bearing crutches which I used for about a month (the brace came off a month and half later) and then went for a follow-up with an orthopedic surgeon. I got assigned to an MRI which due to some problems with my number got done in mid-April. During this time, I healed enough to walk normally, run and slightly jump too and my injury seemed not too severe to require surgery. The orthopedic surgeon called me in early-May and confirmed the knee dislocation and said I didn't require surgery, to continue excercises for my knee (I didn't do much of them, since I never got a chance to go to physiotherapy but I did excercise/stretch sometimes at home) and that it should heal on its own. He also said that I should go back to playing sports as soon as I'm comfortable. (i apologize for the info dump!!)
This was a great diagnosis, which I'm very grateful for, however even 5 months later my knee still hurts sometimes (phantom pains) and I still can't bend it all the way. If I use it too much (moving heavy things around etc.), it slightly swells and hurts but dies down equally quickly.
I was just wondering if it will ever heal 100% considering I didn't require surgery or anything of that sort and if the hurting is still normal? Also, does anyone have tips to make the pain go away.

2023.06.02 23:27 its-classified I (F19) am having doubts about the maturity of my 'boyfriend' (M18) and the sustainablity of the relationship but worried about the consequences of breaking up with him.

TLDR: Me and him have been seeing eachother for approximately a month now after we both admitted we liked eachother. To me this relationship is nothing serious. At first I thought he was great but now I realize that he is incredibly immature, he is incredibly clingy, I'm not particularly attracted to him and he doesn't treat me with the respect I expect in a relationship. We work in the same office and have mutual friends in the workplace so I fear that if I break up with him 1. it will be awkward 2. people will talk shit and 3. he will severely dislike me. How can/should I get myself out of this situationship wothout causing a mess?
The parts in bold are the most important. I'm sorry this is quite long.
Me and him have been working at the same office for around 2 and a half years. He was at first completing an apprenticeship and wasn't in the same area of the office as me for the first year. I only saw him when he was talking to the one mutual friend we had at the time.
When he did finally get a job with the company and worked closer to my space in the office, we talked frequently and became very good friends. For the first year or so I had no intentions of starting a relationship with him. I didn't like him in that way and to add onto that he was still 17 while I had turned 18. We had a lot in common and enjoyed eachother's company.
Earlier this year I found out through a few co-workers that he had a crush on me. I was flattered however I didn't like him that way at this point and I thought we had developed a great friendship that I didn't want to damage. I continued to spend a decent amount of my time around him knowing this information but didn't let it affect how I saw us.
A couple months ago I began to get light feelings for him. He seemed smart, caring and appeared more mature than my high school boyfriend (who I had a great experience with). Therefore, after meeting up with him and a few other friends, I asked him if he still liked me - to which he said yes - and that I liked him back. Even then I wasn't entirely sure if I was particularly attracted to him or if our relationship was sustainable. He seemed elated with this news and then admitted he had liked me for more than a year (which I was a little shocked by). We avoided labeling the relationship and that is why I am hesitant to call him my boyfriend, especially since we only told eachother we liked one another a month or so ago. A lot of co-workers know, while some don't - because he blurted it out to anyone who would listen :
I fear I may have not evaluated this adequately before going into the relationship. I fear I rushed things. I fear that he's just not a good match for me.
Almost as soon as we got together, he began to get more comfortable around me and has started to show his true colors more. He's rude very often. He will call me a bitch now and then, even though I've communicated that I don't like that at all and that it's not ok. He will make belittling remarks towards women. He cirticizes my interests constantly. He honestly acts like a 12 year-old. I don't feel excited to spend time together and I've honestly lost any and all attracton to him.
I'm tied to this job, and while I don't enjoy the work particularly it pays decent and is a great opportunity for me. I love most of the friends I've made here.
So how do I get out of this relationship without causing a mess? I don't want him to be too upset or become mad, which I'm worried about because I don't think he has any idea how I feel. I know he's liked me for a long time and talks about me a lot with others. I don't want co-workers to chat shit about me. I don't want the work environment to be awkward, especially with mutual friends. I do not mind staying friends as long as he respects my boundaries. And I also want to end this as soon as possible; not leading him on either. What should I say to him and how should I handle the situation?

2023.06.02 23:27 CyborgNumber42 Yeah can you imagine being gay lol?

Like seriously honest to god wanting to kiss boys. Putting your lips unironically. Holding his face in your hands to feel his skin on yours just for the comfort of knowing he’s there. Looking into his eyes and realizing for all that you dream you are that you are only human and that your heartburns for just a chance at life with him clasping your fingers in his and holding so tight you feel like you might never let go to ground yourself because this might be the last time you get to hold him. Crying yourself to sleep at night because you know in a different life you could have been sleeping in his arms. LMAO, couldn’t be me

2023.06.02 23:27 Arch-40 A Superhero Reborn

This was a personal essay for a writing course. It ended up being a very personal writing. I'm much better at fiction and my other personal essays did not stand up to this one at all. So this one is very special to me. I hope you enjoy the read.
Ever since I could remember I wanted to be a superhero. I read and traded comic books and superhero cards with my neighborhood friends regularly. In 1989 my parents got me a Nintendo Entertainment System (or and NES for short) in which I actually could be superhero characters and save the day. These early years ultimately forged who I would grow up to become, for better or for worse. I would go on to develop one driving force in my life. One mission above all: to be a hero, to help people at any cost.
You could say I was a typical young boy. I loved my parents and wanted to be just like my father. When he had to work on his old Chevy I was there. When he watched basketball games on Sunday afternoon I was there. When he played basketball in city leagues, I was there. In fact, in the city league games, I got to flip the score cards and sound the buzzer for the end of each quarter. So as I got into high school, still wanting to be like my father, I considered joining the military. I didn’t go to enlist for a long time, but after high school while working at my job at a kiosk in a mall, I ran into an old friend who was now in the US Army. He had asked if I would be interested in enlisting. I was in my mid twenties and working at a mall kiosk barely making any money with no real career prospects. I told him I would go down to the center.
This was my chance to be a hero. This was how I could do something to better myself and the world around me. When I committed to the decision to enlist, I proudly told my parents. My father, who served in the army when I was a child, was proud and excited for my decision. My mother on the other hand, was more apprehensive and worried about her only son enlisting. A couple of years passed by and I swapped my elected branch to the US Navy. The enlistment process was intense and I needed a lot of documents. I regrettably left my military career behind when I got a job offer at GE Aviation. This was a big deal. The facility manufactures helicopter and airplane engines and components for commercial companies and the US military. It was a major salary boost and a job I could be proud of.
Even after landing this career job, I stilled pined for military life. What kept me motivated was knowing that if I couldn’t serve next to the brave and dedicated men and women of the armed services I could have their backs in a way. The main engines produced at this facility are for the US Blackhawk helicopters. The engines are designed to withstand sand, dust and other materials that might otherwise damage and bring down other engines. When I tell people that I wish I enlisted to this day and that if I could still I would, they try to dissuade me.
“The pay isn’t that great.” “It’s dangerous.” “You’ll probably get sent overseas.”
None of these were valid points for me. You do not perform a job of nobility for the money or accolades. Yes the job may be dangerous at times, but to defend what you love, sometimes you must take risks. If called to travel for the job, I will go for my job. I would be signing up for this role knowing what it entailed. There would be little shock and awe when it comes to the basic job duties. I truly believed that having to abort my previous mission to start this new mission with this new job that I would still be satiated. I believed it would be what I needed. To fulfill my duties and honorably contribute. I was only partially correct.
While I am very proud of the work we do and my part in the system, the “hero” in me never left. Still having a strong affinity for military culture, I strive to take care of and protect people, usually at a personal cost. Leave no man behind. Sacrifice yourself to save the person next to you. Earn the highest honor. While lending someone money or waking up at two am to help with an emergency or dropping what you’re doing to help someone who ran out of gas is not a death on the battlefield, it can still be a death of self. Superheroes are super for a reason. Maybe they are impervious to heat or cold. Maybe they can fly. They can probably bench press cement trucks. Maybe they just have billions of dollars to buy all the heroic toys they want. I don’t fit into any of those molds. I am just a human, just a man of average means going through life like everybody else. I can’t possibly save the world myself.
In trying so, I have developed depression and anxiety, both extremely debilitating. I somehow put on my cape and cowl and gauntlets and never took them off. I made my mission to serve and protect at any cost. In doing so I forgot who I was. I will disregard my comfort in order to make somebody else more comfortable. I will sacrifice my sleep if it means somebody else can rest more easily. I believed wholeheartedly in my impregnable armor and that it would keep me safe from trauma and I could freely rescue people. I learned that my armor is not impregnable. I learned I could be attacked and damaged. However, I am also learning that it is possible to take off my armor and not be the hero. I will by no means abandon people, but I am on a path to learning how to wear just a utility belt rather than a full suit. Without my suit of armor I can be a normal person. Everything I did to save others I can use on myself. I can have bad days like everybody else and I am learning that it’s okay to tell somebody else having a rough go:
“Hey, I’m not doing so well today. I don’t think I can be much help right not.”
Even though I am in the process of removing my superhero attire, I will hold on to my utility belt. It still contains useful tools to assist others, but allows me to be me. I can learn who I am without my gauntlets and work to fortify my mental and emotional armor. I can be my personal superhero.

2023.06.02 23:27 Eastern_Papaya3953 DH is making vacation miserable

DH, BS8, and I are on vacation in Europe (from the US) for 3 weeks. We’ve been here for 3 days and DH has been nothing but snappy, mean, and has barely said a word to me unless it was snarky or about plans.
I tried to hug him earlier today and he just stood there like a log. So I kinda just left him alone and stopped trying because he’s been mean since the second I woke up this morning. BECAUSE of his crappy attitude, I started to focus more time and energy on my son to make sure our day wasn’t ruined because of DH, so I played around with him and tried to make him laugh.
Tonight he tells me that he feels alone because I have to do things like hold BS hand on the crowded streets and sit by BS on the tour bus and he feels like he’s on vacation by himself. (DH is a big dude, so sitting next to him is not comfortable anyway and when he’s behind me, he’s like a foot away, I can still talk to him and touch him. Not like he tried to talk to me at all though.) He seems to also purposefully be walking either 10 feet behind me or 10 feet in front of me. I mean, we’re together 24/7, eating all meals together, sleeping in the same bed, we have the opportunity for alone time after BS goes to sleep, etc etc.
Idk what to do. I knew that doing this stuff (holding BSs hand, sitting next to him on the bus, playing with him) would upset him but I can’t just ignore my child in a strange city.
I basically spent the entire three days thinking “I’m sitting next to BS, is this going to make DH mad? I’m holding BSs hand, is this going to make DH mad? I bought myself a drink and forgot to ask DH if he wanted one even though he heard me say I’m getting a drink and didn’t say anything, is this going to make DH mad?” This is also my life at home though.
His attitude is making me miserable, I’d honestly rather be here alone than with him right now. I don’t know how to salvage the next 3 weeks. 😭

2023.06.02 23:26 RNGtan Space Cleric (Heavy Armor Scoundrel Consular)

Space Cleric (Heavy Armor Scoundrel Consular)
I am currently still frustrated at making an Armored Caster work in K2 in a way that isn't just strictly outclassed by going naked. To blow off some steam, let's play a bit of K1 where Armored Casters are much more competitive.
Caster Setup
Combat/Sustain Setup
This build is trying to fulfill a bunch of conditions in order of importance:
  • 40 Force DC
    • 100% beats Young Rancor with Insanity
  • 40 Defense
    • Cap avoid against common enemies on the LS route
  • 36 Attack
    • Caps hit against Final Boss with Master Critical Strike
    • 33 Attack outside of the Final Boss is enough to cap against the turrets
  • 1 buff is assumed to be online all the time
    • Extended Speed allowed
    • 2 buffs against bosses allowed if necessary
  • Immunity Mind-Affecting required
Disclaimer: This build isn't the most practical build in the game. The primary goal is to hit a bunch of benchmarks, and in order to do so I play a 8 CON Scoundrel. This character has the worst possible Fortitude save in the game for a protagonist, in a game that frequently checks it. They also have the worst possible Vitality, so expect to get one-rounded by crits in the early game. That said, I try to come online at the beginning of Dantooine instead of after the third map like most of the gish builds do.

Why Heavy Armor?

Having access to Heavy Armor allows you to equip the Cassus Fett's Battle Armor right after leaving the Jedi Enclave. Defense-wise, it is almost as strong as the Heavy Exoskeleton, but available much earlier. It certainly is the strongest on a Scoundrel, who is 4 Defense ahead of a Soldier, but most Scoundrels don't even consider Heavy Armor. Novelty value.
The other item it enables is the Sith Mask. It comes with Immunity: Mind-Affecting and FP regeneration, as well as Weapon Focus, which we don't pick up in this build.

Intermission: Dantooine

Mid-game Setup
As said, one of the perks of this build is Cassus Fett's Battle Armor. At 37 Defense we cap Defense against pretty much anything but boss encounters, most notably Sherruk and the Albino Kath Hound. At 10 DEX it also provides 1 more Defense than the Heavy Exoskeleton at the cost of 2 STR (and 3 CON), so that is what we use for most of the playthrough.
If you take all the Persuade money options on Taris as a Scoundrel, you will end up with around 10k to 11k credits. If you intend to buy the armor as early as possible, I recommend to sell some items on the Taris Upper City shops. They pay you 40% for the item value, which is slightly less than 65% of the Yavin shop post-Dantooine, but more than the default 25% otherwise.

2023.06.02 23:26 phytomenace 23 [r4m] VA/USA - I can keep your houseplants alive (probably)

AFAB nonbinary person seeking long-term romantic relationship with childfree man who is not a creep.
I'm pretty heavily introverted and shy. I like keeping plants, especially succulents. My degree of success with this... varies. But they're all living, so it's probably fine.
I'm more of a cat person. Well-trained dogs are cool. I say this because I have three, and because one time some weirdo got really insistent about "dog superiority" after I told him I'm a cat person. So now I just say it in my posts.
I like the standard human things. Indie-pop and alt music, graphic novels, Chainsaw Man (the manga and the anime), The Boys (just the show), Sweet Tooth (just the comic), and plenty of animated shows and movies. I have a soft spot for stop-motion.
I'm autistic and demisexual. Not currently locked into a special interest, so maybe it could be you?
I'm left-leaning, non-religious, and don't drink or smoke. I have discord, so we can switch to that after we've gotten to know each other.
Appearance: I'm 5'4", plus-size/curvy/fat/whatever you feel like calling it, keep my hair cut short, and am pretty average-looking. I don't know how to use makeup and refuse to learn, so I've gotten comfortable with this. Couple of pictures on my profile.
What I'm looking for: - male - 24-30 - living in the USA. The closer the better. - childfree. This does not just mean "childless". - monogamous, LTR-minded, wanting to take things slowly - won't insult me for fun/as a joke. A lot of people seem to like doing this before they've even gotten to know me. Being picked on that way turns me off. - bonus points if you're built like a bealook like a lumberjack. Not required, I just like that. I have no other preferences.
Tell me about yourself if you message. Age, location, hobbies, likes, dislikes, your ideal date night, whatever. Otherwise I will just assume you didn't read my post.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Release in U.S

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse hits theaters on September 23, 2023. Tickets to see the film at your local movie theater are available online here. The film is being released in a wide release so you can watch it in person.

How to Watch Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse for Free?

As mentioned above, the dark fantasy is only released theatrically as of now. So, people who wish to watch the movie free of cost will have to wait for its release on a platform that offers a free trial. However, we encourage our readers to always pay for the content they wish to consume online and refrain from using illegal means.

Where to Watch Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse?

There are currently no platforms that have the rights to Watch Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Movie Online. MAPPA has decided to air the movie only in theaters because it has been a huge success. The studio, on the other hand, does not wish to divert revenue. Streaming the movie would only slash the profits, not increase them.

As a result, no streaming services are authorized to offer Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Movie for free. The film would, however, very definitely be acquired by services like Funimation, Netflix, and Crunchyroll. As a last consideration, which of these outlets will likely distribute the film worldwide?

Is Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse on Netflix?

The streaming giant has a massive catalog of television shows and movies, but it does not include ‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.’ We recommend our readers watch other dark fantasy films like ‘The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf.’

Is Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse on Crunchyroll?

Crunchyroll, along with Funimation, has acquired the rights to the film and will be responsible for its distribution in North America. Therefore, we recommend our readers to look for the movie on the streamer in the coming months. In the meantime, subscribers can also watch dark fantasy shows like ‘Jujutsu Kaisen.‘

Is Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse on Hulu?

No, ‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’ is unavailable on Hulu. People who have a subscription to the platform can enjoy ‘Afro Samurai Resurrection‘ or ‘Ninja Scroll.’

Is Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse on Amazon Prime?

Amazon Prime’s current catalog does not include ‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.’ However, the film may eventually release on the platform as video-on-demand in the coming months. Therefore, people must regularly look for the dark fantasy movie on Amazon Prime’s official website. Viewers who are looking for something similar can watch the original show ‘Dororo.’

When Will Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Be on Disney+?

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse , the latest installment in the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse franchise, is coming to Disney+ on July 8th! This new movie promises to be just as exciting as the previous ones, with plenty of action and adventure to keep viewers entertained. If you’re looking forward to watching it, you may be wondering when it will be available for your Disney+ subscription. Here’s an answer to that question!

Is Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse on Funimation?

Since Funimation has rights to the film like Crunchyroll, its official website may include the movie in its catalog in the near future. Meanwhile, people who wish to watch something similar can stream ‘Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train.’

What is the story of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse?

In the 1950s, Alice and Jack live in the idealized community of Victory, an experimental company town that houses the men who work on a top-secret project. While the husbands toil away, the wives get to enjoy the beauty, luxury and debauchery of their seemingly perfect paradise. However, when cracks in her idyllic life begin to appear, exposing flashes of something sinister lurking below the surface, Alice can't help but question exactly what she's doing in Victory.

2023.06.02 23:25 mesa53 Can anyone else relate

I cringe at anyone saying baby girl because he used that phrase so many times that night. Every time I have to put a tampon in I’m reminded of that night because it hurts to now. I can’t even imagine starting to trust someone new or remotely becoming intimate again. What if I’m a bad judge of character and I judge badly again? I could’ve made so many better decisions. I had to re layout my house because it was so fresh in my mind. Moving my bed against the wall to feel more protected. Sleeping with the covers over my head to feel safer. Curling up in a ball. Wanting to disappear into the couch or bed. I want nothing more than to not have to feel his hands phantom touching me when I’m triggered. To not feel like I’m suffocating. The involuntary shivers trying to shake the phantom touches. The bruises that resided for weeks. I wish I could undo time and never have met you. The incident remains so clear as day but for some reason I can’t remember his name anymore. To not see another red head and do a double take and feel like I can’t breathe for a couple minutes. To not be triggered to a point where my head feels like it’ll explode if I move to fast. The being hungry and then going to eat and not being able to stomach food, feeling absolutely nauseous at what happened. Being simultaneously exhausted and unable to sleep. The list could go on. I’m so tired.

as for the earth destruction in x there's evidence that says its not 100% confirmed destoryed and this happens at the end of the game after the intro Cutscene so if they wanted the earth to be 100% destoryed they didn't have to put this as xenosaga aliens space is big they can just say the aliens are in apart of space never discovered it would be a retcon but they do it all the time so people need to stop acting like its the definitive thing stopping it also i don't know people are against theory every wins so stop gate keeping community it only makes it less enjoyable to interact with

2023.06.02 23:24 Mousellina Anyone wants a used cup?

I understand many will be uncomfortable with the idea and in all fairness I don’t feel entirely comfortable posting this so please be kind in the comments 😅
I was googling how to recycle a menstrual cup and found out that there’s a group on Facebook where people can swap their used cups to make it easier to find what works for them.
I am not looking to swap, instead I would like to give mine away for free. I would’ve posted this offer in the relevant group on FB however they allow shipping within USA and CANADA only. I am in UK so I didn’t know where else to offer this.
I have a Saalt Soft in size small, purple colour. Box and cotton bag included. Literally tried it for couple of seconds and it didn’t suit my anatomy and I would hate to throw it away if there are people who are ok with taking it, considering the price.
Obviously I washed it with soap and sterilised in boiling water and you can do the same just for the peace of mind.
Just pay the shipping or you are welcome to pick it up in London. You can message directly if you don’t feel comfortable replying to the post.

2023.06.02 23:24 Distinct_Use4778 Tucking advice/tips?

I would like to get a tuck so that I can wear comfy yoga pants out in public.
Does anyone have an easy and good quality guide for tucking? I have seen a lot of confusing information from different tapes, to no tape needed, to gaff, to etc.
Also, this may be a little too specific in details. What size is "more comfortable" and manageable achieved for tucking? I am generally trying to understand expectations for a smooth tuck and what is my potential for going out in public feeling ready. Is there a size like under in length that is easier to tuck and above more difficult?

2023.06.02 23:24 roastedcrackerjacks trigger warnings

mobile formatting.
i’ve had 2 people message me separately about adding triggers and it makes me feel feral. i hate being that person but, trigger warnings aren’t in the real world. and trust me, if it was triggering content or if the whole story revolves around a trigger yes, i agree it should be tagged. but i wrote about a character going through an embarrassing moment and passingly said “and think about ending your life,” and this chick messaged me and DEMANDED a trigger warning. i had another that i did a ONE SENTENCE IMPLICATION of domestic abuse (again, joking) and was told “as someone who witnessed that first hand it’s not funny” and i think that’s my issue with “trigger warnings” it’s to make YOU feel comfortable.
i think an issue i have with marking everything that may be deemed triggering also pulls my audience away because they don’t want triggering content but if the base story isn’t triggering content is it necessary to add?
i also want to add to my rant: i also have first hand experience to DV and suicidal thoughts, and i didn’t find anything triggering about them in the slightest. i know everyone has different levels but i guess i feel upset because a lot of times i feel like i’m being shamed for not being triggered enough.
i think the question is: should i start tagging when literally anything could be taken triggering or am i kinda in the right in saying those instances aren’t triggering?

What can I sell for a lot of money with some of this stuff and where?
I mainly just want the insides & I don’t want the circuit board/insides, that includes wires. The computer is a Comfort View and my brother says it’s the oldest one you could buy. His boyfriend said that the copper in the speaker could go for a lot of money, but that is all I know so far. I am not selling this on Reddit, I am probably going to turn in the valuable parts to a pawn shop.

Should I initiate a divorce or stay with my husband for the sake of our children?
We have 3 children together, 2 year old triplet boys. We were trying for one and got three. We didn't do fertility treatments so it was a complete surprise.
I don't want to stay in this marriage because I don't feel loved or respected.
I could go on but I have had to edit this post several times for length and I can answer any follow-up questions in the comments. I hit the main points above. I don't expect a perfect marriage. I know I'm not perfect and also have my flaws which have contributed to the degradation of our marriage but I don't think I expect much. I just want someone who wants to be an equal partner.
My kids are little and love their dad. I think I could deal with the situation if I knew it was best for the kids. If we were to divorce I would have to move to a different state to be near my family because he is my only support here. I have to travel for work sometimes and can't leave the kids alone with him because he doesn't know how to care for them so I drive 6+ hours when I travel so my mom can watch them. She can't come here because my dad is allergic to cats & my husband has a cat and every time my dad has visited he's gotten very sick and it's too hard on my mom to watch them alone. My mom was older when she had me, and I was 36 when my kids were born, so she isn't a young grandma and needs the extra help. My concern with staying is my kids learning that our relationship is normal & that he'll treat my kids the same way he treats me and make them feel bad about themselves.
I don't know what to do. Help?
