2023.06.03 17:22 ComplexMight7408 If i rewrote miraculous ladybug

Those would be my changes and i probably will add some more.
  1. Adrien = NO! Felix = YES! Yeah i know stereotypical edgy boy but i think it could be interesting by fleshing his personality out a little. have him be cold, harsh and manipulative like the one in MLB but have him also a soft spot for Ladybug.
  2. Marinette should be less stalker but more shy and non-confident about Adrien. like this girl is a fricking girl not an yandere like Ayano god.
  3. There ages should be 16-17. i want them to be older and more mature. they should be in Grade 12 or 13. also this would be less child abuse when Gabriel abuses him in Cat Blanc. sure it still is but atleast it isnt a 14 year old child getting hit.
  4. Designs MARINETTE: ok, why the heck is Marinette looking like a single white mom on facebook that has 7 children and drinks coffee everyday to stay awake. i want her to look more like Light Academia styled! She is shy yeah but still. she looks kind of weird and she is a FASHION DESIGNER. Also Ladybugs outfit is a little to dry and bland so i would give her Pennybugs hair style and give her gold in her outfit like Callimari did in her redesign/rewrite of her. i think that it should also show her chinese heritages and her being confident about it and knowing it is great FELIX: Ok. his base outfit is actually pretty good. BUT i would think that Gabriel would give him more fashionable clothes like a more Dark Academia style. It would actually fit. Also i think that he should be a little more bragging about his outfits. Also the cat noir suit is already pretty nice and it would take Cat Noirs inspiration. Kinda lazy to do the rest but yeah pretty much it
  5. Adrien. now he still would exist but he would be the older brother of Felix and the perfect son who Gabriel prefers than Felix. this would show some jealousy moments of them both. Felix and Adrien do love each other but they also got a bitter rivalry for Gabriel's love and attention. yeaahhh i want some drama.
  6. The miraculouses. Now. first of all there would be only 12 miraculouses. The ladybug, the cat, the fox, the bee, the peacook, the moth, the horse, the snake, the rooster, the goat, the ox and the tiger. I would give each miraculous 2 powers. the first one is immediatly there and the second one will be unlocked when the miraculous holder evolves. Here are all the list of powers! LADYBUG = Lucky Charm & Miraculous Ladybug (both automatic there) CAT = Cataclysm & Magical Charm (unlocks end Season 1 & afterwards) FOX = Mirage & Detriment (The foe gets a blurry vision = Each to defeat) BEE = Venom & Alliance (The foe gets stung by a big bee which lets the user control the person until the foe gets hit physically) PEACOOK = Amokatization & Free Soul (The user gets calm which charges power) MOTH = Akumatization & Swarm (the user is able to grow wings to fly duhh) HORSE = Voyage & Spirit (the user gains super speed for some time) SNAKE = Second Chance & Faith (the user can heal physical and mental wounds) ROOSTER = Sublimination & Burstblack (the user will shoot fire that will cause anyone to get if they get in touch with it to get their power lost until water catches) GOAT = Genesis & Optimizer (the foe gets a lot of joy filled into them) OX = Resistance & Vigour (the foe is able to send out a little smokebubble to possess someones object to make them blue coloured and buffed) TIGER = Clout & Abiding (the user is able to dodge every attack someone launches at them, making them rage quit from the battle and willingly get deakumatized)
  7. Chloe redemption arc. i honestly need to rewrite the episodes first before i do it but yeah she will be redeemed

2023.06.03 17:18 CivilStrawberry Grandparents Constantly Complaining About Custody Schedule

Sorry I’m advance, on mobile. I just need to vent for a minute. I’ve been separated for a little over a year and divorced for about six months. For the first year of my separation, my ex lived in another city and only saw our son 3 times that year due to distance and other circumstances (we met in the middle once for a week long trip so they could see each other, and twice he visited our city for holidays). It’s not perfect, but I can at least say that we do our best to coparent well and be respectful of each others’ needs and desire to be around our kid.
Technically, I have 100% physical custody, but as long as my ex is doing well (he has a serious mental health condition that requires inpatient care at times) he sees our son most weekends for a bit and has him 2 days a week in the summer, and during the school year he’s just responsible for getting him on and off the bus on those days.
Early in the separation I lived with my mother for about 6 months, and she also has my grandmother living with her. I bought my own house at the end of last year and live 30 minutes from them now. I’ll be the first to admit it was a lot on everyone, and that it couldn’t have been easy having us show up on their doorstep, and I’m grateful, but they act like THEY are my son’s parents now, instead of my ex and I, and it’s starting to create serious problems.
Essentially, they seem to think they should also be factored into our custody schedule. They still see my son at least 1-2 times a week for family events or to meet for dinner. Yesterday, my mom called me and said “Well, I wish you’d at least let me have him one day a week, we used to see him every day, and now we don’t see him at all. Grandma (her mother, kids great grandmother) hasn’t seen him in forever!”
Guys, they saw him Monday for a Memorial Day picnic and Tuesday we met for dinner. This conversation happened on Friday and they live a half an hour away. They hadn’t seen him in two and a half days. That’s it.
My mother also got upset because my five year old “didn’t pay attention” to my mother and grandmother have a very problematic relationship and it’s a whole thing, but this is a constant theme. My grandmother has NO boundaries. She has tried to commission work on MY house without my consent to more suit her desires for how it should look. She bought me a bunch of clothes that she thinks will “look better on me” (she and my mother recently told me some short shorts I was wearing would make me a “laughingstock” because they didn’t like how I looked in them. They are of the opinion women who are mothers should only wear big sweatpant style shorts and sweatsuits for “modesty”). Did I mention, half of the clothes she bought me came from the men’s section at Walmart? I’m grateful for any gift, but this gift was specifically given with the intent to control me at best and insult/ hurt me at worst. She has done the clothes thing to me every year since I hit puberty. It’s a whole other thing, probably more suited to another sub than here, but just to paint a picture of who she is I thought I’d include that story here.
All this to say, this behavior bleeds over into her relationship with my child. She frequently will grab him as soon as he enters the home (like literally waiting at the front door and blocking off entry into the house, grabs his wrists and tries to kiss him and hug him even when he is screaming and literally sobbing and saying please stop). She also tries to pay him to kiss her. She will give him five dollars and then say “I gave you five dollars, now you have to kiss me.”
I find this behavior VERY PROBLEMATIC and have explained to them the lessons it could teach that would be negative. I put a stop to it each and every time but after six years, I still have not gotten any relief from their constant boundary breaking. They seem to think they have some kind of ownership of my son m, especially since the divorce, and a right to him. They don’t understand that my ex and I have a custody arrangement and that my ex will always come first. Not to mention of course that he could absolutely take me back to court to reassess a more formal arrangement if he felt I were abusing what we have now, which he would be well within his rights to do (and I would never abuse it).
On top of this, holidays are a nightmare for us now. Every time I don’t have my son for one or split it with my ex it’s a constant barrage of “how sad, WE never see him.” Or “next holiday Ex Husband doesn’t get him, we do!” Other extended family “Aunts, family friends, etc) have echoed this sentiment. Divorce is pretty rare in my family, so I guess it hasn’t been encountered much? Idk. I’m not the only one though.
Because I technically have full physical custody, I think they think that I can just fuck around and not include my ex in things as desired. First and foremost, my ex will always be my sons father. he is not perfect, and you can see evidences by previous posts that we have things that we don’t agree on.But he does have rights, my son loves him, and he is a good parent. Our custody agreement is written the way it is to protect our son in the event that my ex’s mental health does not allow him to make sound decisions as a parent for a period of time. I do not believe it’s right to take advantage of this to suit mine and my family’s will for holidays and other dates that he would be able to watch our son. It’s not fair to my ex, and it’s not fair to my son.
I explain to my mom that she’s always first on the list if my ex cannot take our son one day. She has retired so her schedule is pretty open, so typically she is able to take him even on short notice. I appreciate her immensely and I know he loves my mom very much as she is a wonderful grandmother, but his great grandmother also living there makes it difficult as she is unpleasant be around and has no respect for his wishes or mine as his parent. There’s also a whole other argument to be made about whether or not they’re physically capable of watching him due to their physical limitations, but that’s a whole other thing.
I’m exhausted to the point of tears. I hate it. I have no boundaries, no life of my own. Even my divorce has somehow become about them, and this is reflective of how my entire life has gone.
Anyone else have extended family who is just so disrespectful if custody arrangements? I feel like most peoples problem is with their ex not respecting it, but here I am having to fight my own family.

2023.06.03 17:17 One_Possibility_9683 [Online] [5e] [other system] [18+] [LGBTQ+ friendly] Welcome to Fold The Deck!

(Hi, I'm Ben! I'm posting this for my friend and DM, K (she/they) and I'll be helping a bit in the process of finding players)
Welcome to Fold The Deck! It's a campaign in a homebrewed world that I began to design...somewhat recently? But due to my hyperfixation, I already have a ton of it done (most of it, really). In this world, you'll be playing as somebody of high social standing, someone that has to weave their way through the delicate nature of high society while also keeping your allies close and your enemies closer. In addition to this, there's a sinister plot going on in the background that you, and your newly found companions, just might have to stop in order to save your own skin.
We have two players currently! Each player is using one of the archetypes from Good Society as the launch point of their character; so far, the Heir and the Cornerstone have both been picked! Other than that, any of the archetypes are available as a starting point (again, that is as I'm writing up this message, so keep 1-3 in mind that you might want to play as! Your options, just in case you're unaware, include the following; The Socialite, The Dowager, The Dependant, The New Arrival, The first code word is Gambit, The Meddler, The Hedonist, The Tutor, and The Careerist).
The whole base concept of this is similar to the base concept for Dimension 20's 'A Crown of Candy', though I can promise that this will be nowhere near that brutal (at least, in terms of combat)! Except instead of Candy Land, this world (or at least, the society you're all playing in) is based on playing cards; more specifically, the game War (in which Aces are the most powerful (those are the gods of this realm), and 2s are the least powerful (the poorest of commoners)). So the social hierarchy is Aces (again, the gods of this realm; deity is the second code word), then the royal families (Kings, Queens, Jacks, and 10s), the nobility (9s, 8s, and 7s), the middle class (6s and 5s), and then the lower class (4s, 3s, and 2s). Your character will end up being a 6 at the very lowest!
The campaign will be beginning on the day before the most important event of the year, for commonfolk and royalty alike; The Festival, which is a one-month-long huge holiday event that happens during the exact middle of the year! I plan to have the campaign run through two separate festivals, so for at least a year and a month. And years last for 15 months in this world, so for at least 16 in-game months! Though we can certainly do more if the party wants to! I've had a lot of fun developing this world so far, and I can definitely find ways to expand upon the plot!
The day will be alternating Saturdays, and time is not decided yet. The time zone is EST but as long as you can make it to session your time zone doesn't matter. The reason for the rating is due to mature themes; also, myself and the current players are all adults, and we have an adult sense of humor. Also, there are themes that I don't feel comfortable exploring with minors, so if you're not 18 or older, please don't apply! Also, please don't apply if you're over 30; this is just a personal preference, I don't want to play with people that are more than a decade older than me, you know? Oh! Also! The final code phrase is 'The Horror, The Cat, and The Crow'. Thank you so much for reading my little posting! Oh, and here's the link to the Google application form!

2023.06.03 17:14 kschwi Just finished season 4 and am a bit apprehensive about season 5 (mild spoilers)

Am I the only one who preferred the original timeline over the amber timeline? In a way season 4 was somewhat of a reboot with part of the characters lives erased. There were some good episodes my favorites being welcome to Westfield and A Short Story and I liked how they mixed in the MOW episodes into the overall story arc. That said, it seemed a bit off with the Amber timeline and I preferred season 3 to 4.
I don't know if I bought into the ending/motivations in Brave New World Part 2 and have we seen the end of the MOW episodes? I don't know if that bodes well for me with season 5.

2023.06.03 17:07 thomasp3864 About the 9 worlds, and their role in Norse Mythology-inspired fiction.

Obviously there aren’t 9. The term 9 realms is like the 7 seas--there aren’t exactly seven. Yet, I have decided to try to get a list of as many as possible. Here's my list:
  1. Nidavellir -- in the north, it is home to a clan of dwarves which include Sindri. This could easily be a place in Midgard or Jotunheim. The dwarves do seem to show up on Midgard a lot. It could also be the same as Svartalfheim.
  2. Alfheim -- This is ruled over by Frøyr. Home of the elves, it could also be part of Asgard. Or maybe part of Vanaheim, since its Frøyr. I don't think I've ever seen this on a list separately from Ljóssalfheim, so that's here too, though I would personally keep this separate, and have Vídbláin be the same as Ljóssalfheim.
  3. Svartalfheim -- This is underground and home to the Dark Elves. Judging by the way the adjective "svartr" is used of people, the "dark" refers to their hair being black. Otherwise they'd be called the Bláalfar which literally means "blue elves". Snorri might've just made this up
  4. Asgard -- At the middle of Midgard, or above it, ruled by the Æsir, capital city Glathsheimr
  5. Andlang, above and to the south of Asgard. Connects Asgard to Vídbláin
  6. Vídbláin -- Above Asgard; the light elves live here. It contains the afterlife of Gimlé. Snorri could've made this one up.
  7. Vanaheim -- No idea what this place is. Snorri places it in what is now Russia, near the border with Ukraine but he also made Asgard Troy, so I don't know if I trust Snorri on Geography. Could be the same as Vanaland, which is in Sweden. On the other hand, some people think that the Vanir and Æsir were the same, so this could also just be used to alliterate with a v.
  8. Svalbarth -- The Saga of Samson the Fair says this extends from Jotunheim to Greenland. This is home to various tribes., and is also sometimes called Svalbard, but IRL Svalbard isn't close to Greenland.
  9. Glæsisvellir -- A plane, possibly part of Jotunheim (although in the Saga of Samson the Fair one character sails north to Jotunheim from Glæsisvellir, and these are treated like different countries. It is ruled by a Jarl. It is possble that Glæsisvellir is a vassal state of Jotunheim
  10. Jotunheim. This is located Northeast of Risaland, which may be part of Midgard, or another name for Jotunheim the guy who wrote the saga assumed was a separate country. Jotunheim has had a number of kings who ruled from a cave. Additionally, if you say "trolls take X", which is possibly a way the norse swore at people, they actually do.
  11. Mithgarthr -- We live here.
  12. Járnviðr -- Járnvithr means "iron forest", and is a forest east of Midgard. It is home to the Járnviðjur, a type of female troll. It may be ruled by Angrbotha. I imagine this as being made up of iron trees.
  13. Muspelheim -- This is the place furthest south, since it gets hotter when you go south in the places the Vikings lived, this is also the coldest place. The Fire Giants live here, and Surtur may rule over it.
  14. Niflheim -- Niflheim is the place furthest north. It is home to the Hrimthurses. It also extends under the earth. In the underground part of Niflheim is Helheim, below which is Niflhel, it is also home to Nidhogg.
  15. Helheim -- Ruled by Hel, this is the lowest down. Normies go there when they die.
  16. Niflhel -- Below Helheim. I know this is contradictory but so is it beïng fourteenth on this list.
  17. Utgarth -- This is considered to be part of Jotunheim by many, but it's also across the sea, and you can go through Risaland from the Baltics to Jotunheim with no mention of a deep ocean in the way. Maybe it's across an ocean from the rest of Jotunheim, but still part of it.
  18. Myrkheim -- Apparently another name for Nidavellir.
Am I missing any? I think this might be a more or less exhaustive list. One of the great thing about how there are more than 9 worlds is that if you're making something based on norse mythology, you can pick and chose. Need somewhere to be in the east of Midgard? Járnvithr! Want a fiery place? Muspelheim! The fact that there are more than 9 gives you a lot of creative freedom. You can pick and choose. Virtually the only one you need is Midgard.
If I had too pick a 9 though, they would include at least Midgard, Asgard, Jotunheim, Niflheim, Muspelheim, and Járnvidr. The last three would depend on what I wanted to do with them. I might even include more than 9! I might have the rest be Alfheim (ruled by Frøyr, and maybe part of Vanaheim), Vídbláin/Ljossalfheim, Svartalfheim/Myrkheim, and Svalbarth. Glæsisvellir would be part of Jotunheim, and Nidavellir part of Svalbarth.
This is why Rick Riordan and Marvel are able to have different rosters of the 9 realms. They're able to just pick 8 of the 17 non-midgard realms. For a long time people seem to have promoted various fixed lists of the 9 worlds, planning out beforehand which 9 to use, usually based on whatever the book they had listed as them, or whatever the first google result said. I hope that in future, people realise there are a lot more than 9. I would love to see Glæsisvellir show up somewhere. Or someone flesh out Vídbláin and populate it with their elves.

2023.06.03 17:06 Virtual_Tadpole9821 Hormones 10th anniversary rewatch-along [Episode 2: Dopamine 1] (GTH/Nadao Bangkok)

Hormones 10th anniversary rewatch-along [Episode 2: Dopamine 1] (GTH/Nadao Bangkok)
More than one person commented in the last thread, so I'm considering it a success and continuing for now. 😅
Hormones was GTH/Nadao Bangkok's breakout series that revolutionized Thailand's teen drama genre and helped steer GMMTV into series production. Episode 2 aired 10 years ago this weekend.
How to watch from official streams:
  • Option 1: If you have Netflix and a VPN to Thailand that works with it, you can find it here.
  • Option 2: If you're in Canada or the United States (or Thailand), you can find the full episode on GTHchannel's YouTube: Hormones วัยว้าวุ่น EP.2 โดพามีน 1 (Dopamine 1) [Full Ep]
  • Option 3: If you're elsewhere, you'll need to use a web proxy or VPN to Canada, the US or Thailand to access the above YouTube link. If you aren't subscribed to one, the Opera Browser has a free built-in "VPN" feature that's fast enough for video streaming, though performance varies. (Set it to Americas.)
How to watch on YouTube with subs (on the computer):
  1. Download the Substital extension for your browser. (The Chrome version also works with Opera and Edge.)
  2. With the video playing on YouTube, click the extension and select the video in the drop-down menu.
  3. If you're using Opera's VPN feature, it'll probably say "Could not connect to the subtitle provider." Pause the video, turn off VPN, and click "Try Again." The "Search subtitles..." box should show up at the top.
  4. Search for "Hormones S01E02" and select the language you want.
  5. If you're using Opera's VPN, re-enable it.
  6. The video should now play with the chosen subtitles. You might have to adjust the Synchronization settings a bit to get the timing right.
If you can't get the above to work, or just can't be bothered, don't worry. No one's going to judge you for finding it elsewhere. The creators aren't losing revenue from something that's unavailable to you in the first place.
High school students in Bangkok wrestle with issues such as sex, teen pregnancy, drugs, school violence, family turmoil and more in this Thai drama.
Episode 2: After playing guitar in one of Win's videos, Tar gets the chance to play with See Scape, the most popular rock band at school. (Source: Netflix)

2023.06.03 17:06 micktalian The Gardens of Deathworlders: A Blooming Love (Part 18)

Part 18 A Delicate Situation (Part 1) (Part 17)

"Aho, Zim, ni je na?" Msko was the first to notice and greet the relatively short, stout, and furry being that just waddled into The Hammer’s Control Center.

"Ah, Administrator Zimuzari, I am honored you could join us." Atxika's eyes quickly shot up from the holographic display being projected from the table she was leaning on and landed on Kyim'ayik colony leader. "Have you had an opportunity to read through the initial report we sent you?"

"Hello there, Mkso, Admiral Atxika. It's…" The reddish-brown ball of fur paused his adorable squeaking, half covered his mouth with one of his paws, and let out such a tremendous yawn that Atxika could see both the massive front incisors as well as the not quite as large, but still impressive, set of canines behind them. "My apologies, I woke up less than half an hour ago. But it is good to see you both, as well as an honor and privilege to join you in your Command Center, Admiral."

"The honor and privilege are mine." Atxika bowed slightly with her pleasant smile still wide. "And I would like to apologize for waking you. It will still be a few days before we arrive at our destination and this strategy meeting could have waited."

"No, no, no, that's alright." Zim quickly replied with his species' high pitch and chirpy version of galactic common while stretching out and flicking his long, shiny whiskers as he approached the military leaders. "I've already gotten about nine hours of sleep. Skipping the last hour or two has killed me yet! And I’d rather get started on this sooner rather than later.”

Admiral Atxika had to put in real effort to prevent herself start cooing at the delightful manner with which Zim made his way over to the holo-table and climbed the stool-like chair designed for his anatomy. The long, wide, and flat tail distinctive of the Kyim'ayik was lifted just off the ground and stretched far back to balance the rest of the being’s body weight while the relatively short hind legs carried him along in an awkward, though comfortable, bipedal gait. With the limited range of motion in the squat, fuzzy man’s leg-like arms as he stretched, it was clear his species was more intended for quadrupedal locomotion. Despite that fact, the posture of the Kyim'ayik Administrator while he walked was far more similar to her own, or a human’s, than what she had remembered from her previous interactions with the species. However, as Zim stretched out his back to its full length, adding good chunk to his overall height, and began climbing the stool so he could have a proper view of holographic display, Atxika was suddenly reminded of a domesticated species of vermin-hunting musteloid from her species’ homeworld that were quite popular pets. Even though she knew this furry little man was a well respected guest on her ship, and a being from an Ascended species, she couldn’t get over how adorable he was.

“I hope you didn’t wake the misses.” Msko commented with a sarcastic tone while shooting the beaver-otter a cheeky wink.

“Nah, that woman could sleep through an atomic detonation.” Hearing the galactic common word for ‘atomic detonation’ be said with such an endearing squeak was pushing the Admiral to the absolute limits of her self control.

“I can have some food and refreshments brought, if you like.” Atxika interjected while doing her best to keep her smile from growing too wide and showing all of her teeth.

“Oh n-” Zim was about to politely decline before Msko interrupted him with a bit too much energy.

“Yes, please!” The War Chief blurted out. “That restaurant Tens took me to in your Amenities Section was amazing! I knew this ship had a huge manufacturing capability, but I didn’t realize you’d have freshly grown food.”

“I’ll have the private command facilities prepare something.” The Admiral quickly replied to ensure that Zim couldn’t refuse. “How does a zetloxoni platter sound?”

“What are-” Zim began to ask before Atxika realized her mistake and explained.

"Zetloxoni are fish fillets, rolled in a semisweet and highly nutrient-rich grain, and occasionally topped with more fish or other ingredients." The Admiral replied while typing into the display to bring up a holographic representation of the sushi-like dish she was describing. "This is what I was thinking."

"That actually looks amazing!" The Kyim'ayik ears suddenly perked up and eyes grew wide with delight.

"Wonderful! It's settled then." Atxika pressed in a few more commands to place the order then tried to redirect the conversation to reason for the meeting. "I find it is often easier to address delicate situations with a clear mind and full stomach."

"Delicate?" The squeaky reply carried a noticeably sarcastic tone as Zim shifted his attention towards the holographic representation of a planet and saucer shaped ship orbiting it. "That looks like Arnehilians. Ain't nothing delicate about the Grays, except maybe their physical forms."

"Well, they're definitely Arnehilians but…" Msko interjected with a hesitant tone that caught his Kyim'ayik friend off guard. "We don't think they're Grays."

There was a second of confused silence as Zim stared into the War Chief's eyes to see if this was a joke. Before Nishnabe could bring himself to explain, however, Atxika chimed in to give the proper explanation.

"What I am about to say is Level 8 classified information from Military Command and should be treated with the appropriate amount of secrecy. Do you understand?" After an incredibly professional and understanding nod from the Administrator, the Admiral continued. "We have confirmed the existence of a non-aligned, neutral-standing collective of decentralized Arnehilian groups who refer to themselves as, quote, 'the Greens', or the Free People of Sundered Arnehil. According to all reports, they are an ecologically-minded, nomadic, agricultural society who regularly travel in such a way as to avoid any means of tracking or detection by their… less peaceful cousins. However, there are a few who regularly check in with Military Command to avoid potential confrontations. There have been no indications that any of their groups discovered so far are violent, nor even capable of galactic standard levels of self-defense."

"I thought those rumors were just misinformation or propaganda." Zim was now much more earnest as gazed upon the holographic saucer floating above the planet. "And you say they're even ecologically-minded?"

"Our drones haven't detected any significant environmental disruptions." Msko sounded far more nonchalant about this situation than his long-time friend was expecting. There was no aggression or anger in his movements as he indicated towards a highlight portion of the holographic planet floating above the table and prompted the display to project a new hologram. "Their settlement is using solar and wind energy to operate their infrastructure and accumulate power reserves. From what we can tell, they're only a week away from finishing their agricultural harvest and two weeks away from their power reserves being fully recharged. If we had been delayed a month, there's a good chance we would have missed them completely."

“What kind of resource impacts would I have to account for?” The Administrator quickly followed up.

“Maybe a couple hundred tons worth of basic elements and organic matter.” It was clear Msko had already scoured everything and couldn’t find any reason to be concerned. “But the drones' sensors can’t detect any real difference between now and six months ago. Like I said, if we were delayed a month, we might not have even known they were ever there.”

"I see…" There was a moment of pause as Zim stared at the highly detailed holographic representation of a temporary settlement located only a couple dozen kilometers from where he had been planning his own colony.

The two military officers remained silent to give the Kyim'ayik Administrator all the time he needed to think about what he had just been told. Each species, without exception, had some unique form of architectural design and aesthetic, and the variety of buildings Zim was looking at were no different. The extensive use of cheap, easy to produce polymers, the simple, module construction, and rounded, nearly circular, aesthetic to all of the building were all clearly Arnehilian. However, there was something humble, almost intentionally so, about the lack of silver-metal detailing combined with the way the structures simply flowed into the untouched trees around them. Rather than a budding slaver-colony run by beings who thought themselves entitled everyone and everything, this looked like the respectfully maintained dwelling of a temporary guest who wished to remain discreet. Though the Administrator knew his duty to his people would normally demand he evict these uninvited squatters from his land, he couldn’t help but feel something almost kindred in what he was seeing.

"Have you made contact with them yet?" Zim flatly asked, though he could already guess the answer. "Do they know we're coming?"

"No and no." Atxika promptly answered, while letting her smile fall into a more professional expression. "Their ship is inactive, seems to be in a state of disrepair, and is currently in a free-floating, low orbit. According to our scans, their ground-based sensor systems are incapable of detecting our reconnaissance drones. However, they would absolutely notice our fleet entering the system."

"Well, we don't wanna scare them." Zim finally squeaked out with a slightly giggle that sounded more like a chirp. "Reptiles always freak out when you startle them."

It had been nine hours of working in the greenhouse when Mayor Harideth noticed the young dark gray-skinned, olive-drab clad messenger running towards him at full speed. Though he had known this young woman her entire life, she was a member of her community after all, he had never seen her running this fast. It wasn't the speed of her approach that made him stop what he was doing, rather it was the unadulterated fear plastered across her face. As Nalhilum sprinted down the path between the vertical hydroponic racks, a few of the Arnehilians in the greenhouse took notice, though didn't stop their work. When the young woman came to a sliding halt just in front of the Mayor, it looked like she was about to keel over from exhaustion and stress.

"My dear, please." Harideth had a genuinely concerned expression on his scaly face as he quickly moved to brace the young woman and prevent her from falling over. "You are too young to give yourself a heart attack running like that. Whatever is happening, you don't need t-"

"Mayor, we've been detected." The dread that came out of Nalhilum's voice and the tears in her eyes as she looked up at her community leader shattered the man's soul.

"Do not fear, Nalhilum, my dear. Please sit and rest. We will be fine. I promise." Harideth helped the young woman slowly lower herself into a seated position, plucked a just-ripe fruit from a vine he had been tending, and handed it to her before turning towards the closest other people in the greenhouse. "Maricha, please see to Nalhilum and ensure she recovers. I am needed in my mayoral duties immediately."

In the few seconds it took for the worker to be at the young woman's side, she had already begun nibbling on the sweet treat, savoring it as this was her last opportunity, and the Mayor had given her a gentle kiss on the forehead then began running out of the greenhouse. Though Harideth felt he had a personal duty to stay at his messenger's side until she had fully recovered and ensured she wouldn't need further assistance, he had a greater duty to his community as a whole. Despite feeling the same fear that he saw in Nalhilum’s eyes, and wanting to ball up and hide with every fiber of his body, he charged as fast as he could towards the town hall building. Though he knew running this fast was not good for his health, especially in his old age and after working all day, the only thing on the Mayor’s mind was the safety and future of the people who trusted him with their lives.

“Please don’t let it be the Oppressors.” Harideth muttered to himself as he ran as fast as his legs could take him. “By the Gods of Old, please don’t let it be them.”

For nearly a millennium now, his people had been free of those who flew the red and gray flag and, despite the many hurdles and setbacks, they had found their own form of happiness. After the Dynastic family who had kept his working-class ancestors in literal chains had been dealt a devastating blow when their capital ship was overrun by a group of abducted, pre-Ascension beings, it sparked a revival of the Free People’s ideology in the slave population. Stories of people living together in mutual aid, love, and respect once only told in hushed whispers were shouted from the rooftops as most of the surviving members of the Dynasty were thrown from them. Once all of the slaves of the other species were freed and on their way back to their respective homes, the budding groups of Greens scattered into the interstellar winds to avoid reprisal from other Dynasties which were sure to want revenge. There was even a dream that they would find other groups of Free Arnehilians living among the stars.

It was a blessing that their rebellion had initially gone unnoticed by the rest of the Arnehilian Dynasties and the greater community as that gave his ancestors time to disperse beyond the ability to be completely tracked down. Even if a few scattered communities eventually met their death or worse, the end of their freedom, there would be some who were able to survive and thrive. Though Harideth had assumed his nomadic village may eventually run into someone, he put a great deal of effort into minimizing that potential. In fact, he chose this very planet as their temporary stopping grounds specifically because it was far out of the way of most civilizations and people. After spending nearly a full season on this beautiful world, he had even started to grow attached to it and was looking for an excuse to postpone their migration in order to facilitate repairs to their ship. Being detected after so long, and with only a few weeks until they would have been ready to leave on their own, was something the Mayor could have never been prepared for.

“Make a hole!” A person wearing a dull green cap shouted down a rather cramped corridor that Harideth was barreling towards at full speed before quickly pulling back and nodding towards the man as he passed.

“Thank you, Chuzikum.” Harideth faintly mouthed while darting past the person and into the now cleared passageway that led outdoors.

Finally outside, the man only slowed his sprint to turn a few corners and avoid running into the few unwary people who had failed to notice him coming. He was less than a hundred meters away from the town hall building housing his destination, the command and control room, and he couldn’t stop now. Regardless of how hard his heart was beating, how much he felt his body overheating from the strain, and how much he wanted to just collapse, he couldn’t fail his people. As the building got closer and closer, Harideth tried to think through all of the possibilities of who it could be that had detected them. Though none of the options that came to his mind were particularly pleasant, from Bendari pirates to Qui’ztar law enforcement or even the Oppressors themselves, he was already trying to work out contingency plans as he finally approached the already open door and his assistant waiting for him beside it.

“Please close the door behind us, Marlati.” Harideth’s request was just barely audible as he crossed the threshold of the door and was quickly followed by his assistant who did as she was asked. “Who is it and what do they want?”

“The communication signal we are receiving registers as the Qui’ztar Third Matriarchy, Mayor Harideth.” Marlati quickly and quietly replied as she followed the man towards the command and control room.

“Oh, thank the Gods.” The Mayor stopped mid step and placed a hand on the wall next to lean and catch his breath for a moment. “This could still be very bad, but it could have also been so much worse.”

“Um, sir?” The Mayor’s assistant watched him with a hint of concern as she could see how much he was overheating. “Would you like me to get you a cooling pack?”

“Oh, no, that’s alright.” Harideth stood back up straight and continued towards his final destination, though a bit slower than before. As he turned back to his assistant, he gave a compassionate nod of approval. “You are too kind, my dear. This is just a…” The man’s voice trailed off as his thoughts began to concentrate on a plan of action.

“A what, sir?” Marlati nervously in a manner which caused the Mayor to look back at her. “I’m sorry sir, but this is the first time this has ever happened in my entire life.”

“First time for me too, Marlati.” Harideth admitted with a hit of nervous laughter. “But I do know enough about the Qui'ztar to not be issuing an immediate emergency evacuation order.”

“That’s not very reassuring.” Though the whine that just came his assistant would have been grating in any other circumstance, she was right and the Mayor knew it.

“That is the name of the game you help some of the children play, something of the magical planets?” Harideth stopped at the door to the room which separated him from his responsibilities as a Mayor.

“Adventures of the Magical Worlds, sir?”

“Yes! I believe there is a moral alignment chart in the rules somewhere.” Though it was clear that his assistant didn’t quite know what he was getting, it became incredibly obvious as he explained. “If I remember correctly, everything I’ve read about the Qui’ztar would put them roughly in the ‘hierarchical neutral’ category.”

“Ah…” The assistance was quite hesitant as she knew what that actually implied. “That still isn’t very reassuring.”

“They’re here to do a job. And as long as we comply and don’t get in their way, we’ll be fine.” The Mayor was doing his best to hold up his mask of confidence and not let this young feel what he felt.

“And what if their job is to kill us?”

“Then they wouldn’t have made their presence known. They would have simply shown up and sent us all to the next life.” However morbid that statement was, it actually did give the Marlati a small sense of real relief in the fact they weren't already dead as the door to the command and control room opened and the pair slowly walked in.

"Sir! Thank the Gods you're here!" A communications specialist shouted from his seat in front of a terminal towards the Mayor as he quickly approached.

"Of course, Telucima, I wouldn’t make you talk to them all by yourself." Harideth tried to crack a joke to the young woman behind the terminal in a vain attempt to calm her obviously flustered nerves. Though Telucima’s dark gray skin was never as shiny as a royal's, her face was especially dull and pale at the moment and the Mayor couldn’t help but empathize with her. “Now, please, give me your report. What do we know?”

“Well…” Telucima made a gulping sound as she swallowed some of the semi-poisonous saliva that had been building up in her mouth as a fear response. “There is a fairly substantial colony fleet headed our way being escorted by the First Independent Fleet of the Third Qui'ztar Matriarchy. They have stated that we are inhabiting an unregistered settlement on a planet that has already been claimed by the Kyim'ayik. However, they have not yet made any demands, claimed our settlement is in violation of any laws, or even made any threats. I am absolutely sure they know who we are, but they didn’t explicitly identify us in their message. I’m not exactly sure what it is going on, but the signal strength and delay indicate they are still a day or two away.”

“Interesting…” The Mayor commented with a more curious than scared tone while rubbing the top of his head in contemplation. “No demands, threats, or attempts to justify the use of force through galactic law… Is there any way we could get a real-time communications link established?”

“Sir? You want to talk to them?” Marlati could barely contain her fear as she interjected. “I thought every species hated us, and you want to talk to them?”

“They hate the bastard Oppressors, Marlati, though maybe not as much as we do.” Harideth knew this would be his one and only chance to make a good impression on what could otherwise be their impending doom and he was doing everything in his power to muster the inner courage needed for this conversation. “They may not know the difference between us and… them… yet. But something tells me they might.”

“Sir,” Telucima had redirected her attention back to her terminal and was running through the system to facilitate the Mayor’s request, “I can establish a quantum link, though it would require me to activate the relay on the ship. If there are any oppressors nearby, there’s a chance they could detect our presence and attempt to use the trace to track us down.”

“Do it.” The Mayor ordered with a tone that implied he knew the risks. “I want to see if these Qui’ztar would be willing to allow us to stay for the few weeks required to complete our harvest. Worst comes to worst, we’ll have to start packing everything up early and delay the repairs for another season.”

The next few moments were nearly silent aside from the sounds of a tapping keyboard and the occasional digitized ping from the terminal. Telucima had begun the task of awakening the ship, configuring the communications channel, and activating the relay through text-based commands on a simple, monochromatic screen, while the other two people clad in simple olive-drab clothing could do nothing but fester in their thoughts. While Harideth was busy planning out how he was going to grovel and beg for permission to finish his people’s desperately needed harvest of fresh food, Marlati was simply doing everything in her power not to shake in fear. When the final confirmation ping came from the terminal and Telucima began pressing her headset tightly to her ears, the faint whispers of a translated voice could be heard.

“Yes I can understand you…" The communications specialist, though lacking much previous experience in speaking with a member of another species, seemed to be focused solely on her job and not her fear. "Oh no, I'm sorry, this terminal doesn't have that function. It's… Yes, I can absolutely do that. Just give me one moment to set up the connection and I'll be right back with you."

In a flash, Telucima had taken off her headset, stood from her console, and was moving to a nearby bag resting on a table, much to the shock of the other Arnehilians. Before either the Mayor or his assistant could question the young woman, she was triumphantly holding up her personal data-tablet and was returning to her seat.

"What-" Harideth began before the young woman cut him off while pulling her tablet into the terminal.

"Ope, sorry about that, sir." The specialist cut off her mayor and began to explain in a rush. "I was speaking to a communications officer and she wanted an audio-visual feed to link to her commanding officer. This terminal doesn't haven't that functionality, but I can just just patch a link through my tablet. It's got a mic and camera and we can use it as the display."

“Good thinking, Telucima.” The Mayor laid a gentle, compassionate hand on the woman’s shoulder after she had placed the tablet at a good angle and sat back into her chair to type in the commands. “I knew you were the right person for this job.”

“It was the communications officer’s idea, sir.” Telucima couldn’t help herself but to be honest regardless of the praise. “I’m just glad there were instructions for this kind of patch in the training manual. It should just take a moment to load.”

When the relatively small screen came to life in front of the Mayor’s face, he saw three faces looking back at him with expectant eyes, and he froze in shock. Though none of the expressions looked out right hostile, he could tell none of those individuals would tolerate anything less than submission. Despite only ever seen descriptions of the being he was now looking at, all three could easily be identified. Even without his tail being visible, the furry, large-toothed person on the right was clearly a Kyim'ayik. The large, mostly-hairless, blue primate with pronounced tusks in the middle was, without a doubt, a Qui'ztar of particularly high rank. However, the not-as-large, similarly hairless, but copper-brown primate on the left was a species Harideth had a special fear, and particular reverence, for.

“Are… Are you a Nishnabe?” Harideth stammered out before even introducing himself or allowing these beings to introduce themselves, which prompted the Qui’ztar and Kyim'ayik to turn to the now confused human.

“Yes…” Msko replied hesitantly. “I take it you are aware of my people?”

“Aware…” Harideth couldn't stop the heartfelt smile from forming across his scaly face. “You… Your people… the Vanquishers of Tyrants, the Bane of Oppressors, the Unstoppable Rage, and the Saviors of the Oppressed… Your people are the reason my people have been blessed with a thousand years of freedom!”

2023.06.03 17:05 Vivid-Fruit-9836 First love trying to get over them advice. Help?

Sorry it’s a little long.
I recently just got broken up with and it hurts so bad I went from being a happy guy to a very bitter angry guy. Before my ex I was a super happy guy and very outgoing! He left me for a female. I knew he was bisexual but after us being together he came out to me as gay and then I guess he went back to being bisexual? Before me he dated a couple girls in his teens and young adult. We met when he was 23. I accepted him for that and told him we could open our relationship and he said he wouldn’t do that to me or hurt me. He said “I love you and I know who I am”
I thought he was going to fight through his thoughts and fight for us after being together for 7 years but he gave up and broke up with me over a phone call.. it’s been almost 3 months and I’m not able to get over him! I know he started dating that girl a week after the break up. He also cheated on me which I forgave him for that. I suffer from depression and anxiety and had it under control when we were together and after the breakup I’ve been going crazy.
After the breakup he was using excuses like im always angry and I was only angry when I found out he cheated on me and broke certain things in the house like anime figures we had. I payed for the ones I broke! I feel like everyone would get angry and break stuff after being cheated on! But I forgave for that a couple days after then the following week he leaves me.
My one friend told me the way he’s acting is like a typical male would act hide his feelings and date right away and move on. The girls he’s with started flirting with him at work and she was the one pushing him towards a relationship it’s not all her to blame I know it’s both people he never told people we was in a relationship almost like he was hiding me.
Also found out one month into there relationship he took her out of state for her birthday and he never did that for me. That hurt so badly! Now I’m being told that they’re planning on getting married and having kids with the girl after 3 months? What kills me is that that was our plan to get married and move into our home. I know his family is against being gay and he’s an only son and once him family found out he seemed to have changed! This hurts…
I want to know if he misses me if thinks of me? We did so much together and I just don’t know I have so many memories it hurts so badly! I’m a cancer and he’s a Aries. I just started learning about zodiac signs.
I was blindsided when he left me wasn’t really expecting it because I thought we were good. I truly don’t know what to do and am going crazy!!
Anyways I just need advice on what to do. He took me off of Steam, and Riot games after 2 months after the break up. we both played so many games together. He does have social media now but he doesn’t use his real name he uses a Japanese type name to hide from people. I know he made a Facebook,TikTok,instagram.
What he also told me was his now girlfriend told him that she doesn’t want him talking to me ever!
I’m truly sad that I lost him but I’m more depressed that I lost my best friend and partner… I opened my heart up and told him so much like way to much and trusted him…. It breaks me… he also told me so much and opened up and cried so much about who he is and I finally made him happy because he accepted himself. Over 8 years…. This fucking hurts!
Has anyone else went gone through this?

2023.06.03 16:56 gerardthedinosaur I Think There's Merit In Criticizing The Things You Love

I want to preface this post by saying I LOVE LOVE LOVE Yellowjackets. Even Season 2 (I'll get to that shortly). That Misty Musical scene when she's in the water pod made the whole season for me!
But I feel like this sub has recently gotten a little aggressive towards people who point out flaws which are very clearly there: (Why did all the adult women start hunting Shauna when they said a day earlier Lottie was being crazy, specifically Nat and Misty; How did Walter get all the bank and phone information of, according to the timeline, deaths that only happened about a week earlier; How did Lisa and Callie show up at the hunt at the exact same time and right as Shauna was about to die; Why did a police officer submit to Walter's blackmail when he could have just arrested him right there and told his whole story, as a police officer, which is much more credible;).
One of the biggest flaws that people have been ready to point out is Nat's death. I believe it is , too. I understand that it's supposed to be juxtaposing Javi's death, it's just not done well. There was like still a foot between Nat and Misty when Nat jumped in front of Lisa AND Nat's jacket was like an inch thick AND did Misty have that the whole time?
But I don't even care about the flaws. Let people enjoy things they enjoy, right? And I'm certainly still enjoying it. Still one of my favorite shows, Buzz Buzz Buzz!
For me, the problem is, as someone who grew up during the LOST era, this show is exhibiting signs of Mystery Box syndrome. It's introducing more characters and mysteries at a rate than it can solve the old ones.
We already started with a plethora of mysteries (Dark Tai; Cabin Man**; man with no eyes; Who is the Antler Queen; What are the “real” dark things they’ve done; what does the symbol mean; is it supernatural or not; how will they get found; and many more).
**Yes I’m aware cabin man will be in the bonus episode, but a main plot point shouldn’t be in a bonus episode months away from the actual season.
Season 2 not only doesn’t answer any of those questions, but adds a lot more (why is Lottie seeing visions again now; Who is Walter, really; will Tai’s wife get out of the coma; Will Lisa tell on them; Will there be a battle against Coach Ben; and a lot more;)
I know the common response to qualms like this is that 'they have a 5 season plan and we just need to be patient' but LOST had 6 seasons and left a ton of stuff unsolved. When the rate of introducing new mysteries is greater than the rate of solving mysteries, they're gonna end up just not resolving some plot points. And I think that'll be disappointing for such a great show.
I say this because, as a lover of Yellowjackets, I think there's merit in criticizing the thing you love, so that they can learn from it and make these last 3 seasons even better.
Idk, that's my 2 cents. Hope you all have a great day!

2023.06.03 16:55 Electronic_Wolf_6173 I'm upset about the way my mom handled a situation with my boyfriend

Okay, before I start I want to say that my mom knows I'm dating my boyfriend, I'm 16, he turned 18 today, but we're only a year apart, hes 0'5, I'm 0'6.
I tried to talk to my mom about meeting my boyfriend and his parents before but she shut me down and said that she wants to do it on her own time and that she doesn't want to be rushed, so I didn't say anything more about it.
I only talked to her about him once and yesterday makes twice because me and her don't have a good relationship at all but that's a different story.
My boyfriend walked me to school on Thursday, he's a senior and they had no school that day since all juniors had to take a regents exam, he woke up early thinking he had school but when I told him it was only me he just walked me.
He ended up talking about his birthday, which is today, he said he was going to the beach, then dinner, then he was going to have a bonfire and a party, I didn't know these were his plans, before Thursday I really didn't think of going because before, he said he was just going to hang with his guy friends, but thats not the case anymore I see and he said he would like for me to be there as he wants to spend his birthday with me.
I immediately told him that I don't think I'll be able to go because of my mom, she won't have any money, I don't have any money and I have no ride to get there and back, he understood and I told him that I'll ask anyways because it doesn't hurt to ask.
When I got home I tried to ease into asking her by saying that my boyfriend's birthday was the next day and he wants me to hang out with him, and I told her his plans, before I could even ask if she would be okay with me going, she caught an attitude and started saying that she doesn't even know him, he hasn't had the decency to talk to her or get to know her, she hasn't met his parents, she doesn't have a phone number, she doesn't know where I'll be, I sat and heard her out, I told her that she hasn't met him because she said herself that she didn't want to be rushed into meeting anyone, and I also told her I didn't plan on going to his birthday until he told me he wanted me there.
She started saying that if he wants me to go he has a few hours to meet her demands and said that she has never had a boyfriend her mom didn't know about and she's going to keep it going like that, she then asked why I couldn't call him at that very moment and I said I couldn't because I knew he was pretty busy.
She kept talking about him in a way I didn't like, she said that he needs to man up and speak to her, and if he wants me to go, she wants a phone number, a parent to talk to, an address, she asked for reasonable and understandable things any caring parent would ask for.
But I was upset, not at what she was asking, but the way she went about everything, she flipped on me, cussed me out in the process of making her demands, and made me feel stupid for asking.
I ended up going to my room and crying while texting my boyfriend about what happened and telling him to forget it, he ended up giving me his mom's number to give to my mom, and when she called, she got upset that she didn't get an answer, and when I told her that she might be busy because she has a newborn, she was still upset, instead of being understanding that her call couldn't be answered because of that.
Then my mom got upset because my boyfriend was sending me messages when in her words he could be speaking to her and that he must not be that busy if he's texting me, he sent his number to me to send to my mom and she sent her number to me to send to him saying that she'll be expecting a call, that part got me really upset too because she was making things way harder than it needed to be, she could have simply just called him, then when he did call, my mom had an attitude the entire time, and was trying to make it seem like he was going to try and do something to me while we were out.
Now I was under the impression his parents would be there but he told her that there would be no parental supervision, and it would be him and his guy friends, and I learned that the beach he wanted to go to was pretty far.
She got off of the phone and my boyfriend messaged me saying I was right to just forget it.
My mom came into my room going off on me asking if I really thought she was going to let me go out with no parental supervision and it's just going to be him and his guy friends, my boyfriend later told me his friends girlfriends were going to be there too but we knew it wouldn't make a difference.
She started making it seem like I was gonna try and do stuff with him and his friends or they would try and do stuff with me, she kept implying that I was "expecting" her to let me go which wasn't the case at all, she kept saying that I was just trying to be alone with a boy, she was putting a lot of words in my mouth.
After she left I started crying, I didn't cry about the fact that I couldn't go, yes it was a bummer and I was disappointed as I'm sure any teenager would be, but the reason I was crying was because of the way she handled the situation, I was embarrassed, and I felt incredibly stupid, she made me feel and look stupid for asking.
She came back and asked me if I was really crying about it, and I tried to talk to her about how I feel and say it in a respectful way, I told her I wasn't trying to be disrespectful but I felt like she was being mean about the situation, I told her I understood why I couldn't go but I felt like she was being mean about the way she handled it.
I could barely get the words out because she was yelling at me in the middle of me talking asking me what I thought she was being and after I finished she said she was trying to protect me, while still yelling at me, and that I basically had no right to be upset, she said "I'm trying to protect you and you wanna sit and cry because you can't hang out with a boy, alone, and with his guy friends."
Then she started listing things I should have been crying about, she basically invalidated my feelings, it all made me cry even harder after she said that I was acting like she wasn't that young once and that she doesn't know what happens, she started slamming things around and said that the day before I didn't do my chore at all and all this other stuff, then went into her room and said that she wanted to punch something so bad it wasn't even funny.
Then my sister, who's 13, came into my room and told me she heard everything and was livid, we talked about the situation and I told her how I didn't know that there wasn't going to be any adults there, and that it wasn't even about me wanting to spend time alone with him or do anything inappropriate with him, that was the farthest thing from my mind, I simply wanted to be there for him on his birthday as a supportive and loving girlfriend, but she wasn't trying to understand or see my point of view, I also explained that I wasn't expecting her to let me go, I knew she wouldn't but I asked for my boyfriend in case there was a chance I could have, I didn't want to ask her, and I would have and do understand that she said no, but the way she handled the situation with such anger and what felt like hatred directed towards me and my boyfriend and his family is what made me cry and feel the way I did, my boyfriend even told he was pissed.
My mom then came back into my room and asked what the topic of conversation was and asked if it was her, I tried to ignore her because I was already riled up and just wanted it all to end, but she kept saying "hello name I'm talking to you" to which I replied no, then she said that the last thing I wanted to do was give her an attitude and then closed my door.
My sister got fed up with it and swung the door open and went to talk my mom, she waited until she was done yelling and screaming about me and tried to tell her that I understood why I couldn't go and that I wasn't upset about it and that I didn't know that there wasn't going to be any adults there, but my mom tried to make it seem like I lied about it.
Then at some point she told me that my boyfriend tried to get smart with her, when in reality she asked him if he understood why she couldn't let me go and he said he didn't, then she asked him if he would let his daughter hang out with her boyfriend and his friends alone to which he replied that if she was a teenager then yes and I'm guessing my mom didn't like that answer and he told her that he just doesn't agree with her.
My sister was asking my mom if she could calm down and have a civilized talk with me but my mom was ignoring her and my sister came into my room crying asking if I would go on a walk with her so we could cool down, we got ready and heard my mom screaming and crying on the phone to her mom and they proceeded to talk negatively about me, after about 20 to 30 minutes of sitting on the porch and venting she messaged me and told me to come to her room.
I went into her room and she explained why she acted the way she did, her reasoning was that her blowing up the way she did wasn't even about the situation with me and my boyfriend, it was because she had no money, we had no food, the wifi was cut off, and the gas was/is about to get shut off and she was under a lot of stress and just snapped, she told me that she has to protect me more than she did before because of a situation with my sperm donor (sexual abuse) and that with how many girls get offed by men these days, she wouldn't be able to sleep knowing she let me go and then I never make it home, she apologized and pleaded for me to be able to understand why she said no.
I told her I understand, by that point we were both shedding tears, she told me she knows I need to have fun, but it can't be alone and where she can't get to me or call me or anything, we made up and everything has been fine since then.
But I'm still upset about it all, she really hurt my feelings and for some reason, even though she apologized I can't let it go, I talked about it with someone and they told me I was being petty and had no right to still dwell over the situation, today's my boyfriends birthday and I guess it all just hit harder than when it happened and I need some advice, do I let it go? Was the person right? Do I not have any rights to dwell over it anymore?

2023.06.03 16:54 EKKESSUCALIBAAAH Is Explosive Vegetation still worth playing, or has it been Power-Crept

Good morning, afternoon or evening! I hope all of y'all have been enjoying spoiler season for the upcoming LotR set. But has anyone actually had a chance to enjoy March of the Machine and aftermath? My Friends and I are back from a hiatus! Join in and listen to our podcast discussion over [[Explosive Vegetation]], and it's variants on another episode of our "Power Creep" discussion. We haven't really gotten a chance to play much these past few months, so we really haven't encounter that many MOM or aftermath cards yet, but we have one card in particular that stood out to us. That is [[Invasion of Zendikar]]. We had a trip down memory lane and discuss if it's still worth it to play Explosive vegetation like cards and/or it's variants, whether explosive vegetation has been power-crept hard by it's variants and if it's even worth it to play an explosive vegetation like effect (mostly in the context of EDH/commander). If you guys enjoy then please, comment, like and subscribe on Youtube. Or you can comment down below and maybe the community can share some insight on whether or not explosive vegetation is even worth, been power crept by it's variants and etc.

2023.06.03 16:54 General-Skywalker I really wish we had this one scene

Overall I really enjoyed this season and thought the finale did a great job closing nearly all the open plots.
One thing that bothered me and I really wish we received was a scene where Trent is reading an excerpt from his book as Ted was on the plane or something and they could have even tied this excerpt into the the closing scene showing Jamie with his dad, Sam on the National team, Keeley with the new KBPR, Rebecca finding the Dutch man, etc.
This would obviously be a callback to the episode 3 in season 1 with Rebecca hiring Trent to write an article on Ted and I think was a missed opportunity to really tie it all up in a neat bow.

2023.06.03 16:51 Vivid-Fruit-9836 Need help/advice on 8 year relationship. He was my first love and first relationship! 32m

Sorry it’s a little long.
I recently just got broken up with and it hurts so bad I went from being a happy guy to a very bitter angry guy. Before my ex I was a super happy guy and very outgoing! He left me for a female. I knew he was bisexual but after us being together he came out to me as gay and then I guess he went back to being bisexual? Before me he dated a couple girls in his teens and young adult. We met when he was 23. I accepted him for that and told him we could open our relationship and he said he wouldn’t do that to me or hurt me. He said “I love you and I know who I am”
I thought he was going to fight through his thoughts and fight for us after being together for 7 years but he gave up and broke up with me over a phone call.. it’s been almost 3 months and I’m not able to get over him! I know he started dating that girl a week after the break up. He also cheated on me which I forgave him for that. I suffer from depression and anxiety and had it under control when we were together and after the breakup I’ve been going crazy.
After the breakup he was using excuses like im always angry and I was only angry when I found out he cheated on me and broke certain things in the house like anime figures we had. I payed for the ones I broke! I feel like everyone would get angry and break stuff after being cheated on! But I forgave for that a couple days after then the following week he leaves me.
My one friend told me the way he’s acting is like a typical male would act hide his feelings and date right away and move on. The girls he’s with started flirting with him at work and she was the one pushing him towards a relationship it’s not all her to blame I know it’s both people he never told people we was in a relationship almost like he was hiding me.
Also found out one month into there relationship he took her out of state for her birthday and he never did that for me. That hurt so badly! Now I’m being told that they’re planning on getting married and having kids with the girl after 3 months? What kills me is that that was our plan to get married and move into our home. I know his family is against being gay and he’s an only son and once him family found out he seemed to have changed! This hurts…
I want to know if he misses me if thinks of me? We did so much together and I just don’t know I have so many memories it hurts so badly! I’m a cancer and he’s a Aries. I just started learning about zodiac signs.
I was blindsided when he left me wasn’t really expecting it because I thought we were good. I truly don’t know what to do and am going crazy!!
Anyways I just need advice on what to do. He took me off of Steam, and Riot games after 2 months after the break up. we both played so many games together. He does have social media now but he doesn’t use his real name he uses a Japanese type name to hide from people. I know he made a Facebook,TikTok,instagram.
What he also told me was his now girlfriend told him that she doesn’t want him talking to me ever!
I’m truly sad that I lost him but I’m more depressed that I lost my best friend and partner… I opened my heart up and told him so much like way to much and trusted him…. It breaks me… he also told me so much and opened up and cried so much about who he is and I finally made him happy because he accepted himself. Over 8 years…. This fucking hurts!
Has anyone else went gone through this?
