2023.06.06 08:11 DrMoose97 Week 1 update on Saxenda

Hello! Just finished week 1 on Saxenda! Most of the week I was on vacation but the good news is that it kept my cravings at arm's length. I had no major side effects, just a bit of nausea here and there for like half an hour and a bit of constipation at the end of the week. I'm really happy whit the result also because my weight it's still the same and that never happened to me on vacation. Today week 2 starts with the increased dose.
What about the rest of you? how are you doing? Good luck to all :D

2023.06.06 08:09 ThrowRABalsamicV Why is he (25M) seemingly trying to get my (24M) attention?

I am an openly gay that’s pretty feminine, and he is a masculine guy. As far as I know he has not said anything about being gay or bi to me and he has had a girlfriend. We go to the same school and we hang around the same spot but that’s literally it.
I was with my friends, and almost every time he would walk by us, he would sing “DOO doo dooooo…” My friends said he only did this when he was right by our table. Another friend said he kept staring at me. I have noticed him doing this around me for MONTHS, but I never got the validation until I was around my friends and they, unprovoked, said it’s only around me. He’s also the only one who initiates conversations, and I’m combative towards him because I don’t trust him.
This is because, last year, for about a month, I didn’t have a car, so he not only offered me rides home when he’d see me, but sometimes he would just pass by me and say “I’m giving you a ride home.” One time he even called me because I left on my own and he said “why did you leave?? You should know I’m going to take you home. I just want you to be safe. Etc.” During this time we’d also have VERY lengthy eye contact and flirty banter.
But then, on one of these nights, he called me ugly (unprovoked) and basically said that it’s a fact I have to accept, and then announced to other people that he called me ugly. He then stopped offering me rides and then avoided me for a couple of weeks. He then started acting like nothing is wrong, then started being mean, then again avoided me for about a month, and then started trying to be nice to me.
However, ever since the “calling me ugly” incident (which is now about 10 months ago), I have made sure to NEVER look at him or acknowledge his presence until he comes up and talks to me. So he initiates every single moment of eye contact and all conversations. The last time I was around him, my friend said she caught him trying to “discreetly” look at me a few times. He also replied to one of my stories on IG last week.
What if he is just the type of person that wants everyone to give him attention or like him, and not because he’s attracted to me? My friend says that I act like I hate him.
If he only saw me as a friend, I don’t see why he would care. He is super masculine, and I’m an openly gay guy that leans on the feminine side. I’ve basically been super cold towards him for 10 months now, and we were never close and we never even had a one on one hangout aside from 7-8 rides home that lasted about 15 minutes each time.
Tl;Dr: I am openly gay. This guy that I know basically by proxy would offer me rides home/insist on giving me rides home + was kind of flirty + long eye contact. Then randomly called me ugly and basically loudly announced it. Avoided me. Then acted like nothing is wrong. Then was mean. Then avoided me again. Then started being super nice. He initiates every single conversation and I never look at him until he comes up and talks to me. Yesterday, my friends told me he kept staring at ME, and every time he passes by our table only, he would loudly sing some dumb tune. On another day, another friend said they caught him trying to discreetly glance at me a few times. He also replied to one of my stories. Is it possible that he wants my attention for a reason other than attraction? Maybe I’m just an ego boost?

2023.06.06 08:08 hijesushere Hey, I made a 4 hour long playlist of songs outlining my conspiracy, but you can opt out any time after the first video if that's how you feel after you see it.

Edit: edit: Jesus christ its 4 hours long. I enjoyed it tho, kind of a neat little ridearooski or whatever. Originally posted in the bipolar subreddit. Man I know a lot of kpop songs. Make sure and use the YouTube app if you're on mobile, when it was pulling up in browser the subtitles weren't working. Not all of them have subtitles. Enjoy the music.
Don't read ahead, don't watch ahead, just go down the path, or turn back now. It doesn't matter either way. I made a playlist with my bipolar ass... I'm not sure how long it is or I'd warn you, i wanna say around 3 hours, it's all music. I'm gonna post it here, and then start it and see how long it takes to get thru the whole thing. Then I'll update the beginning. Have fun, wear headphones to have the same experience that I had. <3
Instructions: next paragraph to be read after preceeding song, but, honestly, I don't know why I even bothered trying to make a note about something because all anybodies going to get out of this post is extreme mental illness, but like, it might make you feel something, i dunno. Sorry you guys, I'm chill. Have a good one, homies. Listen to some music if youre bored. It's just my sillyhead mind on full display. I wanted to play Danny Brown so many times, that just wasn't what the story was about this time. Yall stay safe. Lemme know if you need anything. Take your meds. ✌️🤙
(This is going to be long but its all optional) What's up homies! I'm diagnosed as Bipolar 1. It was funny, like, in highschool, so like 2008 - 2012, anyways, I knew that the rock band Avenged Sevenfold were angels. The lead singer is Gabriel, and the other guys are other Archangels, that's why they do the naming scheme that they do, Johnny Christ, Snynsyter Gates, M Shadows, ect, because they're some ancient dorks and that's the kind of nerd trash we like to pull. So I forgot about that because I pushed it away because like, um, hello, not a moron.
Then a couple years go by, I'm on psychedelics at my friend's house. Long story short, I have a conversation with Gabriel, I give them a song, I tell them to put a Mexican restaurant song on their album if the conversation is real, and I left it at that. So a couple of months go by, their new album comes out. The song that I gave to the voice on the trip is on the album, here, I'll link it to you. It's this one. https://youtu.be/5N-tTKERxj8
So I like wrote it about myself and what I needed to do and stuff... like it was a message to me. And avenged sevenfold, they've got a ton of angel imagery in all of their stuff, I mean their symbol, the deathbat, which is a skull with wings. Then there's their music, I'll link some of the more obvious stuff.
https://youtu.be/7bDg7n-chhU << Exhibit A https://youtu.be/HIRNdveLnJI << get it? https://youtu.be/94bGzWyHbu0 << I mean watch this video.
That's all I'll show you of a7x... look into them though, if you're in any way curious. I could be way off the mark, but that's what happened... it is what it is. I'm not worried about it, you shouldn't be either. But like, that's my band. Those are my bros. Or, you know, I have something. But I don't live my life like I'm sick: I live my life like I'm going to change yours. Because that's what I do.
So like... haha, this is gonna be hilarious. So you guys know all about receiving messages in songs type of deal.... me and Red Velvet and Everglow have been doing that since like... I dunno... 2014? Whenever everglow came out... but, basically, Red Velvet are uh... my girlfriends, back home, and they all came down with me to be my message system to wake me up. Because I got woken up, I remembered who I was in 2016. After that, it's just been messages in Kpop songs keeping me afloat. I'll show you. So Red Velvet has been sending me messages for a long time. Here's probably one of the most impactful ones. Remember, from your perspective, you're Archangel Michael, and you've planned all of this. You've put these people where they needed to be. You've designed the whole set. So to receive the messages is no big deal, right? So here, check it. I'm actually gonna watch this one with you guys, because it always hypes me up. https://youtu.be/c9RzZpV460k
Ok, so, maybe you can see a little bit why I'm at least getting screwed with a little bit, you see the lyrics? It's like they're talking straight to me man. And its like, kpop has been nudging me along, no matter what mood I'm in in reality or whatever place I'm at, the right song always comes out at the right time. For instance I was struggling with myself on whether or not I was going to move forward with any of this. This is my choice, I'm not suffering from a maladiction. I can choose to tell people or not tell people, I choose to share, I want connection. So anyways, look at this one, it was exactly what i needed to hear: https://youtu.be/JUJ3Pq74H4c
I know, I know... kpop girls aren't telling me to come pick them up. They are driving me to do something, though, however small that ever may be. And there's this thing I've always done to show people that I'm an angel without actually telling them. I put my thumbs together and spread my hands out, it's like code. And remember, these are all coming out at specific times. Watch this one, look at all the symbolism: https://youtu.be/R9At2ICm4LQ.
Man, I don't even know what to play after that one. Thats pretty much it you guys, that's basically all I wanted to show you, everything else is just going to be extra. It's all a complete waste of time anyways. I'll show you some more... let's see, there's other bands. There's Everglow. Like how it works is, we get everything ready in Heaven (we've got time), and then we like funnel everything to the earth to be put in when and where we will it to. Angels are like mega consciousness, we write scripts and, whatever, you're not going to believe me anyways. Let's see.
https://youtu.be/Z3RA7bi5FUM << fantastic song, really great message. I just don't think everglow is talking about themselves here. I know, I know, this is High Octane Narcicism if it's ever existed... if I'm such a narcicist then why are you such a sweet lil puppy dog huh, I could just numnumnum, oh why yes I could, I could just numnumnum all on those wittwe toesies, oh yes I could. Alright, one more everglow and we'll move on. Everglows a pirate, you say? Hmmm, what could that be code for... https://youtu.be/-2X-pL06628
I get it... but at least you guys aren't gonna judge me for it, because you guys can relate, right? Don't yall have stuff like this in your own lives? Anyways, there's one line in particular in this aespa song that gets me... see if you can figure out which one is the one messing with my head https://youtu.be/WPdWvnAAurg
Because like... I lost my memories and... it's whatever. Let's wrap back around to another Red Velvet video. You know how like, it's scripted? And like, I'm controlling the page? Well check out the symbolism and more obvious stuff in this next one... maybe you won't see it... it's obvious to me, but, well, you know 🤪 https://youtu.be/XGdbaEDVWp0
There's just... I dont know what to play next... that's really it, basically. I know it's dumb, but, I mean, I'm undettered, you know? Like I don't mind being classified as mentally ill, it's fine. I can still work something out. Let's see... dang feel my rhythm.... see they're all timed.... I'm like a sleeper agent haha and they had to wake me up but... it's stupid, I know.
https://youtu.be/xGr53sCo62c << this ones just a phenomenal song
Here's another one, straight up about God. Is Red Velvet a Christian band? I thought they were just general pop. https://youtu.be/YBnGBb1wg98
You cant take it away from me. I'm stronger now than I was when I didn't know. I fell for anything. Now I know which side I'm on. I don't listen to human beings about reality bro... I dont care how many degrees you've got. I'm God's Son, what are you going to do about it? I'm mentally ill? No I'm not. What else? I'm a narcicist? I love you, what else you got. I'm a troll? Go ahead.
My point is, I'm as mentally ill as you want me to be. If you want another patient... another sad case to be kept away, here I am. If you want me to do what I'm supposed to do, and free the earth, then I'll do that instead. You all are my guests, please, do whatever you wish with me. Let's see, what else should we play. Should I go? I guess I'll just show you guys some more cool songs while I'm here. This next ones a bop, I'm gonna listen to it too. I've been watching all the kpop vids with you.

2023.06.06 08:07 Original-Loquat3788 Ouroboros

'Please, Darling, play Lark Ascending one more time.'
Mary lay withered on the bed, the cancer almost done with its devouring.
'My Mother,' she continued, 'she played this all through her pregnancy and when I was a girl.'
I slid Ralph Vaughan Williams' soaring masterpiece into the vinyl player and watched as the disc spun.
'Are you ready to begin? I continued.
She nodded, wispy hair falling over the pillow.
'I want you to focus on my pocket watch and let my voice carry you away.' I said, starting the hypnotic procedure. 'Now I'll count back from 10, and you'll feel your consciousness begin to dissolve. 10. 9. 8…3. 2. 1. '
The home nurse came up beside me. 'Doctor Everest, this is most unusual.'
'Please,' I replied, 'this is her dying request, and she has but minutes left.'
'Now listen to me, Mary.' I turned back to my wife. 'What can you see?'
Her pulse slowed under my fingers. I put a mirror to her mouth, and the force of her exhalations raised scarcely a bead of condensation.
'It’s black.' Her voice lilted with a dream-like quality.
'Walk through the darkness, Darling.'
'Wait, I see the outline of a man.'
'Go toward him. What is he wearing?'
'He is holding a serpent eating its own tail, and now he's uncovering a dark hood.' At this, she gasped.
'What is it, Mary?!'
'A vast tree grows from his skull. Oh, it’s beautiful. It’s ringed with wildflowers and flashing birds.'
At this point, Mary's pulse entirely stopped for several minutes, and her top lip curled over her teeth.
'Doctor,' the nurse said, 'time of death?'
'Mary, is the man speaking to you?'
Mary's tongue darted outward like a snake shot through with current, and a deep indecipherable groan emanated from her very core.
'Doctor, I demand you put a stop to this!' The nurse shouted.
This time Mary's voice was her own but heard from the other side of a river bank in a gale-force wind.
'A bird is retrieving a parchment from the tree.'
Here we met another juncture, and the harried nurse left to call the authorities.
'It's the final reckoning,' Mary said.
'Tell it to me.'
But once again came that voice no living man has ever heard, bottomless and croaking.
'He says I can't, and it's time to go.'
'Go where?!' I gripped her by the hand, the tears flowing freely with the sweat from my brow.
'Ah, I see now,' her voice was fading, 'it is a circle. I am in a soft, warm place, and what is that?... Yes, it's music.’
I turned, but the record had long since finished.
'The Lark Ascending,' she replied, 'I am at the start.'
The connection severed, rigor mortis set in almost immediately as the color drained from her.
But I must stop writing now because the police are here and they've brought a priest.

2023.06.06 07:59 popl12342 24/7 lower back pain

24/7 back pain
Help, for the last 4 years (16m) I've had major lower back pain. This pain is a throbbing pain that gets worse when it's not under compresion. I can feel it between each vertebrae in my lower back. This pain is relative to when I cracked my sternum which would be about a 5. This pain is 7 almost 8. It effects my walk at times and never subsides, getting up and down feels like someone is ripping me in half and takes time. My dad tells me to suck it up and deal with it because he's had pain all his life (farm boy with degenerative disk disease). My mom tells me it's not that bad and I should just work out to fix it. Went to a doctor one time asking for it to be checked out and telling them my symptoms, they gave me 20 days of weekly physical therapy and it made it worse. Insurance won't do a mri or x-ray. Then along side that pain my left hip socket pops in and out whole I walk and my left shoulder does the same when any slightly strenuous task is done. Any ideas on what it is?

⯀ Most popular items ⯀

There were multiple popular posts asking users what they have in their hotbars so I recorded 1000 sets and looked at the data. 428 were from here, 197 from here, 374 from here plus mine.
Tool means a slot shared by multiple tools, usually Axe/Shovel or other combinations that include Hoes, Shears or another Pickaxe. Below is a fuller list (all >0.5%) and the changes from when I last posted this. That data was collected from 2019 and 2020 posts (half and half), when a majority of the players would've been playing the Village & Pillage and the Nether Updates respectively. [Ranged] means the user put some combination of Bow/Crossbow/Trident while [Melee] means Sword/Axe/Trident.

⯀ Item popularity and change from 2019-20 ⯀

The table below shows how many users filled each slot. It's interesting how slots 8 & 9 are more often used now, with more free space in the middle. As with last time I did this, it's unclear how many people forgot to write what they put in their offhand. On average, 7.0 slots out of the 9 were filled (very similar to last time).
Slot 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Offhand
Filled 100% 99% 97% 90% 73% 51% 54% 67% 74% 16%
Change +1% 0% -1% -3% -7% -10% +2% +7% +5% -7%
Unique 24 27 25 27 35 33 34 34 36 10
Next is a graph showing which slot the most popular items were placed in. Despite the drop in popularity, a Sword was still in slot 1 for 61% of users - this is clear in the following graphs, which show one slot at a time.

2023.06.06 07:48 Rainbow_Dash_RL Playing every Zelda game: Twilight Princess

To celebrate the new game that is out now, I'm playing through every Legend of Zelda main game. I first played Twilight Princess in my late teens when it was brand new, but was never able to finish it. Now I have completed the entire game, and though it has aged poorly it was still a wonderful experience and I'd say it still holds up as one of my favorite Zelda titles.
I am using strategy guides to find all of the secrets and easter eggs. I'm not going for 100%, but I am taking the time to visit the extra side content in each game. Next, I'm planning to play each game in order, starting with the OG.
Serious spoilers for Twilight Princess below.
Assistant: 10/10 Midna is a great character, her story is amazing, her powers are amazing, and to be totally honest I had a crush on her back in high school. She tends to offer useful hints on request without being annoying and she can freaking teleport.
Combat: 8/10 Amazing sword combat, some of the best in Zelda history. The hidden skills add a lot of depth and nuance to combat. Then there's the Hawkeye, Clawshot, fighting as a wolf. It's just too bad they programmed a parry skill and only let you use it in the final part of the final battle. The targeting system is a big let down, fighting multiple strong enemies at once is a nightmare without the ability to switch (on the original version). Great sense of progression, in the Twilight Castle I patiently boomeranged bats over to me, swiped them out of the sky without targeting, and walked away like a badass. It felt awesome.
Dungeons/Bosses: 8/10 Some of the early ones were bland, but those later levels are breathtaking. Temple of Time. Sky City. Twilight Castle. That neat Snowpeak Ruins with its fun puzzles and items and some good soup, uh. Some of the best bosses I've ever seen not just in Zelda, but in any game. I loved the Dragon, the stupid beyblade battle in the Arbiter's Grounds, and the unhinged battle against Zant the best. Fighting Darknuts and those flying armored lizards is so satisfying.
Design/Graphics: 6/10 In comparison with other GameCube games and compared with the best-looking games of 2006, the graphics are mediocre and big chunks of the overworld feel unfinished. All of Hyrule Field looks like its still rendering. But, the diversity of level design and the avoidance of reusing assets really helps offset this. The Temple of Time looks just incredible, I spent a few minutes in some of the rooms just admiring the scenery. Snowpeak is also pretty.
Items: 9/10 A huge variety of cool items: Ball and Chain, Hawkeye, Double Claw Shot, Zora armor, the spinny gadget, Dominion Rod, Horse Whistle, Ghost Lamp. Even that stupid Magic Armor is cool looking and a flex to own. These items are used well and consistently; the penultimate battle (IMO better than the final boss) tests your knowledge on many of them.
Navigation: N/A The emulated GameCube version I played did not have functional maps or minimaps. I could see my general location on a blank black square, but that was about it. The dungeons felt confusing and too complex but I can't judge this without working maps.
Puzzles: 6/10 Mixed bag. The Goron mines were neat, but way too slow (clunk clunk clunk). Water temple was a cool interactive logic puzzle, but it can go from thirty minutes to over two hours if you do it wrong because of how much time it takes to reset things. Sky City. Just: Everything. Yes, I would like to get blown off a ledge going to the shop or standing still analyzing the puzzle room, thank you.
QoL 2/10: Many of the best moments in the game were ruined by questionable programming choices. Jousting against King Bulbin took a dozen tries because of how finicky the hitbox is. What should have been an awesome beast vs beast battle against Gannondorf took half my health and all of my patience because grappling him did not work the same way it does for the Gorons. There's a spot in Sky City where you have to squeeze through narrow gaps while riding a Peahat. That's not so bad. Clearing out four enemies and climbing vines to be allowed to try again when the janky hitboxes get in the way is pretty bad. Why did they make climbing so slow?! I know that's not a technical limit. OOT had faster climbing. No options to turn off inverted controls.
Secrets/Extras: 8/10 All kinds of secret areas, including an entire cave system at Lake Hylia. Minigames and sidequests galore. There's a fun one to unlock the large quiver and a spare bomb bag. A fishing challenge, golden bugs, Poe souls, a sword trials, the Malo Mart and hot springs water quests (You HAVE to go out of your way to earn the 3,000 Rupees for the Malo mart, trust me it is worth it). My favorite one was the Hidden Village. Both the main quest (a wild west shootout with a bow) and the optional quest (Transform into a wolf and talk to all the kitties in town for a heart piece!) are my favorites in the game.
Story: 10/10 I cried like a baby. Holy shit, what a ride. This game may have its rough edges but I highly suggest pushing through the annoying parts to enjoy the full journey. Darkness vs light may be a cliche as old as time, but Twilight Princess pulled it off with style.

2023.06.06 07:41 NorthernAvo Smashed my head into concrete pretty hard tonight. ..wasn't wearing a helmet..

I was at the skate park, all concrete. I decided to go down this sort of half pipe-esque section with 45° inclines that have a sharp transition. I was doing just fine and taking it easy, going down, then up and hopping off my board when i felt uneasy and grabbing it on the way up to the flat section.
Anyway, for some reason i got this brilliant idea that I'd try and switch from fakie to regular stance on the way back down from the opposite side, thinking i could bail if i lost balance.
Well, i was going way too fast on the way down, switch stance, sort of gained my balance and then immediately tried to switch back to regular and the board slipped out pretty harshly from underneath me and next thing i know, I'm face planting straight into concrete pretty damn hard. Thank the heavens i didn't land with my face directly down, otherwise I'm certain my nose and teeth would be fucked. But it shook my head bad, man. Felt the impact on the opposite side of my head.
I'm convinced I've got a concussion but cant afford a hospital bill, so I'm home. And fucking worried. Everyone's told me i should be fine but now I'm thinking of brain hemorrhages and bla bla. It blows. I was stupid.
From now on, if I'm trying anything like that again, helmet's going on..no exceptions.
Be safe. Don't be like me. 28 years old and fucking stupid.

2023.06.06 07:37 sept_sept Presentation of Manuel Ugarte - takeaways from the CulturePSG's podcast of 6/5/2023.

With the imminent signature of Manuel Ugarte to PSG, the Uruguayan midfielder has been a hot topic of conversation amongst the Parisian community. Unless you've already been following Sporting CP or the Primeira Liga these past couple of seasons, many of us will have been unfamiliar with the player expected to join PSG this coming transfer window. Thankfully, CulturePSG's latest podcast did a great cover of the player's profile in large part due to this week's guest Jordan, a French fan of Sporting CP. Since many fans on this subreddit are not necessarily fluent in French, I took it upon myself to create a few bullet points paraphrasing and/or summarizing some important information regarding Ugarte.
Although this was to supposed be an excerpt from this week's podcast, I can concede that the length of the post may be not be concise enough to keep the attention of the reader. Let me know if I should keep it more brief as I may write a similar post for Marco Asensio who was also a profiled in the podcast by another guest, Ryan Chase, a French Real Madrid fan (although the analyis was much more sober). Cheers!

2023.06.06 07:33 TRAE-is-Alastor Designation: Death(chapter 8, part 3)

Doll was quick to get up and counter her tricks, by creating 3 knives, which she each split into two.
She fired 3 knives at R, and 3 at X.
X was only hit by one, he was very agile and quick, throwing one of them back and forcing Doll to leap backward.
X was able to close the distance while she dodged, and feinted a claw swipe at her head, in order to actually get a slash at her back, cutting into it.
Doll however cut his arm off with the knife he threw back and then telekinetically threw it into his gut and plastered him to the wall next to R.
R had gotten hit by all 3 of the knives Doll threw at her, and she narrowly dodged before Doll could slam a desk into her ribcage.
X managed to rip the knife out of his stomach, and R began firing bullets at Doll, but they were easily redirected and hit her directly in the gut.
X ran forward and attempted to stab Doll with her own knife, but it shattered against Doll’s forcefield, before the tiny pieces were enhanced by Doll and sent flying into his skull hard enough to pierce it.
“This is over, Doll!”
X shouted as R’s chest cavity opened up and out of it popped a small cylindrical piece of metal, which she threw at Doll.
This piece of metal exploded into a storm of shrapnel and nanite acid, which just barely managed to pierce Doll’s forcefield, and hit her.
Only the shrapnel however actually worked, the nanites weren’t numerous enough to affect her.
Doll suddenly realized something… She wasn’t getting any Solver readings from R, even though she seemed to have the Solver.
Normally, AbsoluteSolver users were non-interactive and therefore couldn’t directly be harmed by the Solver, and yet…
Doll decided to test her theory, and began crushing R telekinetically.
That proved it, R for some reason wasn’t considered to be an AbsoluteSolver user despite having it.
Suddenly; X got up and once again managed to stab her in the back, but this time he also slammed her against the wall and threw her backwards over his head, firing a rocket at her as well.
Doll survived the explosion, but was winded and took a second to get up.
X began firing at Doll with a concealed sniper in his arm, but only one bullet hit her, and it wasn’t enough to stop her.
Doll sent every other bullet back, hitting X in the wrist and radius in particular.
X and R quickly began to flee, knowing that they couldn’t win.
However as X and R both ran down the corridor, they saw a cleaver fly past them, only to suddenly loop around and slash into R’s skull.
X quickly hacked the blade in half however, and brought it up to one of his wounds, allowing it to be absorbed into the wound.
Doll was still making chase, and so they still ran. X and R narrowly turned a corner, allowing them to dodge two small knives from Doll.
However, as soon as they turned the corner, Doll was somehow right there in front of them, and cut X’s arm off on the spot.
R thought that they were dead, but X’s arm had a built in shotgun that blasted out, hitting Doll’s leg and staggering her.
X roundhouse kicked her a good 20 feet, before picking up his arm and running again.
Eventually, X and R had lost her, and had a moment to breathe.
“That was close. Be careful, R. I’ll set you free, on one condition.” X spoke with a detached voice.
R was shocked and relieved about what she just heard, and was immediately ready. “The condition is that you don’t fight Uzi, and try to help us out. I’m aware that this little alliance we all have is shaky and strained… but we have to try and make this work so that survival is possible.”
R looked at him, shocked yet again. She knew that this was as good as she could get, and that it was her ticket to become free.
“I’ll let you leave, right after we meet back up with Uzi.”
They began running through the corridor again, their dread building with every dark corner they turned.
They had to be careful, Doll could be around any corner. They moved with the fearful caution of lives who directly encountered death.
They walked as silently as they could, to avoid being tracked, but they still heard footsteps.
Those footsteps could only belong to Doll, which meant that she was still close. The halls seemed to be like a labyrinth, they always took weird turns, just hoping that they led away from Doll and closer to Uzi.
There was something grim about the air itself, and suddenly it felt as if the walls were moving closer to them.
It would turn out however, that they were. Doll had located them, and was crushing the walls around them.
X’s program, translator.exe, activated to translate a Russian voice, and the translation read: “I’ve found you. Goodbye.”
Suddenly the corridor walls glowed red and starting closing in on them even faster, as fleshy tendrils of organic matter seemed to sprout through the wall in little cracks, splintering the ground and chunks of the wall as they reached out to crush X and R.
X and R began to run, trying to escape before they were trapped and killed by Doll.
X was sure that he could make it normally, but the tendrils led to some complications. One of them hit him in the side of the jaw, and grabbed his neck, slamming him against the wall.
The wind was knocked out of him and he could have died right there, however R quickly saved him by cutting the tendril off.
They kept running, but they wouldn’t make it if these obstructions continued.
Suddenly, fleshy organic hands sprouted out of the floor, grabbing R right as X managed to get out.
X didn’t look back, he didn’t realize the hands sprouting out of the ground and therefore thought R was right behind him.
One of these hands ripped part of R’s kneecaps off, then another scratched at her leg and several held her in place.
The walls were closing in, she needed to act fast.
“Godmind_String_Overdrive.” R whispered, and the protocol activated that physically renewed her vigor and temporarily made her tougher and quicker.
She cut the hands in half, and created a forcefield around her and kept running forward through the corridor.
The wall had reached her, and her forcefield was crumbling around her. However; the moment it crushed and her arms were shattered under the force of the walls, she managed to squeeze out.

2023.06.06 07:32 LordBobiscuis Is This a Scam? (Contract shown here)

I was at the gym the other day and was approached by someone who said that they were a model scout. I've never been approached by a scout but I have been told to give modeling a try. I never looked into it until now. We talked and turns out this person used to be a photographer for an agency and would also develop/advise the models they worked with as they went on to become more successful and that they were an independent mother agency now. We had a meeting a few days after and they explained more of the industry to me. I even took some notes on the side. They said they would have me join their mother agency It went something like I get all the money I deserve and that they take a cut of whatever the agency that I'm with (in that territory) gets. So if I get say 90% and the agency I signed with gets 10%, they get half of what goes to the agency. They also explained flat rate percentages to me, but I do need more clarification on what that means as in the contract given to me, it says 33.3%. I can insert some of the text from the contract sent to me here: (I inserted dashes to keep this person's business and name private looks like ---- )

My problem here is the part about social media. Regarding anything I do in entertainment such as instagram, tumblr etc. Also the fees as the wording is a little tough. I'm getting this contract reviewed by others but my mom thinks this is some sort of "Slave Drive Contract" which is used in the K-pop industry. I'm also 21 years old and being asked to model isn't new to me. The person who gave this to me does have a legitimate background in the modelling industry. They do seem new to being an independent manageagent but have shown me some proof of success.

Cover Art!
Just because you’re transported to another world, doesn’t mean you’ll escape from your pain.
Abused by her parents, thirteen-year-old Frances only wants to be safe and for her life not to hurt so much. And when she and her class are transported to the magical world of Durannon to fight the monsters invading the human kingdoms and defeat the self-titled Demon King, Frances is presented with a golden opportunity. If she succeeds, Frances will have the home she never had. If she fails, Frances will be summoned back to the home she escaped.
Yet, despite her newfound magic and friends, Frances finds that trauma is not so easily lost. She is dogged by her abuse and its physical and invisible scars. Not only does she have to learn magic, she has to survive the nightmares of her past, and wrestle with her feelings of doubt and self-loathing.
If she can heal from her trauma, though, she might be able to defeat the Demon King and maybe, just maybe, she can find a home for herself.

The flares had gone up, but the gates remained shut. Martin hadn’t stopped staring at them since the troops had moved into position. He’d only paused to blink.
It was unlikely they’d been betrayed. The Water Tower had fallen to their forces after all. That being said, there were always delays in military operations—
Martin blinked. The gates were swinging open.
“Alright everybody! Up and at them. Mages, smoke us up! Musketeers suppressing fire!”
Cheers rang out along the line as puffs and clouds of mist and smoke began to shroud the Lightning Battalion. Horns blared as the wave of soldiers charged.
Martin was at the head of them, shield raised. He knew his kit was a little archaic, but frankly he could use the extra protection at the moment.
As they neared the gatehouse, Martin could hear sounds of battle within. As he made it over the drawbridge and into the building he could see a ring of soldiers marked with blue and red armbands trying to defend the opened second gate against a flood of soldiers coming from the main castle building.
“For Erisdale!” Martin bellowed.
He and the Lightning Battalion plunged into the melee with troops flooding through the gatehouse,.. Martin managed to slam his shield into one of Darius’s soldiers and stab them, before stepping back to look around.
Already he had teams of soldiers rushing up to help with those fighting in the gatehouse proper. Musketeers were taking position and the mages they had were casting spells at the incoming reinforcements.
There were a lot of Darius’s troops coming, though. They were rushing out of every door, and from every tower to concentrate on the breach.
Martin grimaced. He was sure that he was going to break through at some point, but it would take time. The rest would have to be up to Jessica’s team.
“Come on! We’re nearly there,” said Elizabeth.
Leaning heavily on her, Leila limped as fast as she could. They’d healed her as much as they could but she was still exhausted from the ordeal she’d suffered.
“Why don’t you just carry me—” Leila cut herself off with a Word of Power. Several soldiers were running down road leading to the Citadel, trying to intercept the pair. A fireball erupted from in front of them and smashed into the unfortunate enemies, blasting them off their feet. Leila waved Elizabeth’s arched eyebrow off. “Nevermind. Give me a moment.”
“Yeah, hard to cast if you’re being carried.” Elizabeth paushed to look behind, down toward the city. The way the Traditionalist defense line had been structured was that it left a protected section of the city between the Citadel and the Water Tower.
Before her eyes, Erlenbergian ships were pulling into the harbour, disgorging hundreds of marines and mages that stormed into the city. The Traditionalist forces that had been attempting to retake the Water Tower were now flanked. It would take time however, until they could take control of the area and make their way to the Citadel.
But at least at this moment, the gate that led up to the Citadel proper was unguarded, the drawbridge down. The soldiers having been stripped to defend the city and the main gatehouse or try to secure the harbour.
“You ready?” Elizabeth asked, glancing at Leila.
The Otherworlder shook her head. “Nope, but I need to be at Janize’s side,” she croaked out.
Elizabeth giggled. “Well, since you are hopelessly in love with her. Let’s get you there.”
Leila rolled her eyes. “Fuck you,” she stammered, but she was unable to help herself from smiling.
Scarlet was damn good and tricky to fight against. The head of the Red Order had stored a number of spells into her magical rings, which she used to vary up her arsenal. Fireballs would be followed by vines sprouting from the ground. The earth would suddenly ice up, followed by gusts of wind that would try to knock Ayax off her feet. She was also very fast, and Ayax found herself dancing around Darius’s garden, using whatever cover she could and shields to keep herself safe.
The problem was that as the fight drew on and Scarlet continued to keep throwing spells, the outcome of the fight became clearer and clearer.
Ayax was not the head of a mage order. She didn’t quite have the extensive magical equipment that Scarlet had in her possession. Scarlet also had a powerful magical gift and the cost of it was not a mobility impairment. Leila had told Ayax that Scarlet was missing an eyeball, having replaced her missing eye with a glass replica.
That pupil-less eyeball now glimmered at Ayax as the troll returned Scarlet’s fireball with a larger fireball of her own, forcing the mage to take cover behind a statue of a knight that was blasted apart. Scarlet stepped out to cast, but Ayax was faster, she had already thrown several magical cards. They slammed into the red-robed mage, crackling and popping, smoke and sparks blinding the woman. She barely managed to get a shield up but instead of hitting her again, Ayax paused for a split second before throwing more cards.
These hit Scarlet clean again and she screamed as she staggered, firing magical bolts wildly. Ayax practically just sidled behind a tree and watched the mage pant as she gathered her own power.
No, Ayax had none of Scarlet’s money or ability, but she did have years of seeing the most intense frontline combat of the Great War. She had trained against the most powerful mages of her time, Edana and Frances Windwhistler. She was a gifted mage in her own right with unparalleled athleticism and grace. And to top it all off, she had read Scarlet’s rhythm of casting and was now very much in it and messing with her.
Oh and she’d exhausted Scarlet by making her cast all the spells she had.
So when Ayax threw Frances’s lightning spell over her shoulder, Scarlet only barely blocked it. The woman was knocked backwards and slammed into the perimeter wall of the mansion.
Ayax was soon charging after her. Scarlet managed to fire a torrent of water at her, but the troll sang, drawing up a wind that lent speed to her step and pulling up a mound of earth that blocked the jet. She ducked under the woman’s clumsy attempt to cast a slashing spell at her, and slammed her staff into Scarlet’s head.
Blood poured from the cut across her skull, and the woman crumpled to the ground. Her glass eyeball popped out from the force of the blow, rolling onto the glass. For good measure, Ayax grabbed Scarlet’s wand and pocketed it. She also cast a binding spell that would stick the woman’s arms and legs together so she couldn’t get up.
Then she stared.
One of her parent’s killers was lying in front of her, unconscious and helpless. Scarlet wouldn’t even know if Ayax cut her throat with a dagger. It was more mercy than she deserved.
Biting her lip so hard Ayax thought she was going to cut herself, she turned on her heel. The troll forced marched herself away, thinking of her dear Elizabeth and how she needed help.
Step after step turned into a run and soon Ayax was racing down the city streets for the gate leading to the Citadel.
As she rounded a corner, she saw a column of soldiers fast-marching, also towards the main castle.
“Ayax!” called out a very filthy red-haired woman.
The troll ran up to her friend. “Ginger, oh dear, that was a horrible trip wasn’t it?” Ayax asked as she took in Ginger’s odor.
“Yes. I strongly advise you don’t touch me,” said Ginger. She tilted her head to another approaching mage, whose orange dress quickly gave up her identity.
“Ophelia Voidsailor, good to see you in person!” Ayax exclaimed, clasping her fellow Erlenbergian’s deformed hand.
“Ayax Windwhistler. We never settled who won the Winter Tournament did we?” Ophelia asked.
“I conceded to you if I recall.”
“Bah! That doesn’t count! I want a rematch once this is all over!” Ophelia giggled. She coughed into her fist. “We’ve secured the harbour and the Water Tower. The Traditionalist’s remaining forces are running to the Citadel.”
“Excellent, lets hope Janize holds out long enough for us to get there,” said Ginger, starting to jog again.
It was terribly un-queenly behaviour and perhaps didn’t do the best for the morale of her soldiers, but Janize decided not to sit in her throne. Rather, she was using the very large chair as cover and had opted to sit on a simple wooden chair.
Even then she wasn’t entirely safe and despite herself, she couldn’t help but hold onto a bunch of her crimson hair, as she desperately attempted to keep her breathing level.
Erisdale’s throne room featured the standard long hallway leading up to an upraised dais and two thrones. It also had a second-level gallery meant for nobles to be able to gather and watch the proceedings. This gallery comprised of two large rooms open to the throne room itself. Sculpted stone railings kept the onlookers safe. Underneath the upper galleries were two covered hallways which functioned as ways for people to go up and down the the throneroom without just walking through the main hall.
Normally, there were ways to get to the upper galleries, but the soldiers loyal to Janize had barricaded these entrances. They could not however, barricade the stairways to the entrances that were near the throne room’s main entrance and led up to the galleries. Their defense relied on them holding the throne room’s main front.
Naturally, that had been the focus of the assault by Darius and his soldiers.
“Master George, I distinctly recall you informing me the Throne room was the safest in the Citadel?” Janize mused ass stray bullets whizzed over their heads.
Crouched down beside her behind an upturned table, George smiled wanly. “Yes. It has enough space to hold the soldiers loyal to you, and the entrances can easily be blocked off. The other barricaded entrances can also be opened if we want to make a break for it. So yes, this is the safest place when you consider the other option is your personal chambers which can’t hold all your guards.” Fluidly rising to his feet, George fired a musket down and reloaded. “Hang tight, I’m going to check on the other barricades.”
Janize nodded slowly. She was getting a bit better at not wincing at every crack and whine from the spells and bullets that were sailing through the throne room door. That had been the first to fall and followed by a charge from the Traditionalists. However, the numerous barricades of tables and furniture that had been stacked to form several lines had checked the enemy’s advance.
So a vicious melee had developed at the entrance, with both sides firing guns and spells over the tops of each other’s heads. Janize was no military tactician, but she knew that if Darius’s soldiers gained the galleries, they were in deep trouble. They were also losing those galleries.
Elizabeth arched an eyebrow at Leila. They were now in the castle proper which was unsurprisingly deserted. The non-combatants having fled or hid. “Leila, where are we going. The throne room’s front door is not this way.”
“Yes, but unless you want to get completely fucked by the mass of troops probably fighting there, we’re going to have to break in to help them—” Leila stopped so quickly, Elizabeth nearly dragged her forward.
A column of soldiers were spilling out from one of the corridors into the hall. Their boots were caked in indescribable brown stuff and from this distance, Leila and Elizabeth could smell where they had come from.
At the head of the group of soldiers was a blonde woman with a cat mask. Thier were both Alavari and human and they all had light-blue armbands or hauberks emblazoned with a silver lightning symbol.
“Jessica?” Leila whispered.
“Leila, it’s been a long time.” The masked Otherworlder’s reply was cool. Elizabeth did notice a tremor in her voice.
“Jess, I’m so sorry. I was an idiot and I—”
Tearing off her mask, Jessica took several long steps to Leila and seized her in an embrace. “I missed you.”
Leila couldn’t help but cry. “I missed you too—OW!”
Jessica had flicked Leila’s forehead with a finger. Smiling, crying and scowling at the same time. “Also, fuck you for trying to blast me, several times.”
“Sorry,” Leila croaked.
Jessica gently stroked Leila’s hair. “And I’m sorry for calling you a monster.”
Leila managed a watery giggle. “I deserved it.”
The pair laughed and let go of one another. “Right, which way to save your queen? Also, you alright? You look like a wreck,” said Jessica.
“This way.” Leila said, leaning on Jessica’s shoulder for support. “Oh wow you really did crawl through a sewer.”
“Eat shit, or did you already?”
Jessica snorted. “Fuck you.”
“Glad to see you getting along, but how are we going to make sure we take down a barricade without getting shot at?” Elizabeth asked.
“You’ll see!” warbled Leila.
After dispatching a band of Traditionalist soldiers, they’d come to a doorway that looked fairly ordinary but as Leila laid her hands on the wall it shimmered. “Yo, George! Don’t shoot! Reinforcements are here!”
A slot in the door opened up and there was quick peek. From the other side they heard a great sigh of relief.
“Thank God, get in here.” Their was some scrabbling and the door swung open to reveal the blonde-haired Otherworlder warrior. “They’re making another push. Good thing you remembered the designated escape hatch.”
“Ah, you left an emergency exit, a sally port. Good idea,” said Elizabeth. “Musketeers to the galleries and check your powder before you start shoting. Jessica, Leila, get to the queen. I want a section to guard the sally.”
There was a thunderous bellow from the outside of the throne room. Then another louder one.
“They’re hyping themselves up. This is it!” George bellowed. “Leila get to the queen!”
“Holdup.” Jessica picked Leila up and leapt off the railing. Her friend screamed as they dropped down, only slowing at the last minute due to Jessica’s spell.
George stared at the pair for a moment, but Elizabeth had grabbed onto him and was dragging him. “Let’s get to the front, hurry!”
Janize peaked behind her throne. “Leila!”
The queen was soon embraced by the shaking Otherworlder. “I’m sorry. This is um, Jessica.”
“A pleasure I’m sure, but we are in a dicey spot.” Jessica ushered the pair behind the throne and began casting. Leila soon joining her.
A flood of armored knights had forced the throne room’s entrance. The sheer mass of the column was overwhelming the defenders at the entrance. Leila could see George and Elizabeth fighting furiously back to back against the tide. Elizabeth’s war hammer taking out a knight with every swing, whilst George’s spear flickered into weakspots and gaps in enemy armor like a snake. Far above on the right gallery, the Lightning Battalion’s musketeers were raining musket and magefire down on them.
Yet Darius’s troops were forcing themselves up the staircase to the left side gallery, which didn’t have the additional Lightning Battalion troops.
“Jess! Left side!” Leila hissed.
“I know, shit!” The pair turned their attention to the gallery on the left, unleashing fireballs and bolts of magic. That kept any attackers and musketeers who wanted to shoot back pinned down, but they had a mage on the left gallery that kept shielding their attacks.
It also meant the flood of attackers pouring through the throne room doors only increased.
“Elizabeth where the fuck are your troops!” Leila screamed.
Ayax knew she wasn’t going through the front door, but after running around the throne room’s upper galleries she was wondering if there was any other way in.
As she hammered on a final door, a familiar human face peeked through the slot.
“Helen, good to see you!”
“Get in here and duck!” Ayax’s adjutant opened the door and lead the troll into the throne room. She instantly could see that things were not going well. Musketeers filled the gallery opposing them they were ducking behind a black-haired mage’s shield due to Leila and Jessica shooting at them. However, that meant Jessica and Leila weren’t casting at the knights charging through the throne room.
Ayax could glimpsed Elizabeth locked in a duel with another knight that she dispatched, another Otherworlder protecting her flanks. The pair were pulling back, though and the Lightning Battalion soldiers trying to come down the gallery stairs were forced to come in single line
And Traditionalist forces kept pushing. No matter how many were shot dead, the armored men and women were storming forward, stepping over the bodies of dead comrades with a desperate, furious pace. At the centre of the column was a man surrounded by the biggest and burliest knights Ayax had ever seen and with gold-trimmed armour.
It was Darius and he was in her sight. Ayax blinked, started forward and shook her head. He wasn’t the priority. He couldn’t be the priority. She could see black magic leaking out from her hand, but she forcefully kept her gaze on the gallery.
Taking a deep breath Ayax bellowed, “Clear the way!” Running forward, Words of Power pouring from her lips, she leapt over the railing.
Elizabeth was very nearly distracted by a glimpse of her girlfriend doing a superhero impression as she flew across the top of the Throne Room, carried by her magic. Ayax, her staff punched forward like a spear, slammed into the first musketeer she saw. The Traditonalists ran, trying to make space but that also gave space for Ayax to run after the panicked looking black haired mage.
Whirling her staff around, she slammed him so hard he crashed into the wall with a sickening thud. Then she was hitting the musketeers, sending them flying with her strikes. Even so, musket balls screeched by her, nearly missing her. More musketeers were pointing their weapons at her.
A massive fireball slammed into the railing, setting enemy uniforms aflame. Ayax glanced over the railing to see Leila give her a brief wave before turning back to keep firing at Earl Darisus’s guards. The troll blinked, but there was no time to contemplate, she had to keep fighting. Leaping forward, she sent another human soldier flying. Torquing around, she ducked under a bayonet stab and punted a human woman into a wall.
When she turned around to look for another opponent, Ayax froze. The remaining musketeers were fleeing, retrating down the gallery stairs and away from her. However, there was a blonde haired woman on the gallery with a fox-fur lined coat. She was aiming a musket, but not at Ayax. Instead, she was pointing it toward the dais of the throne.
Ayax’s eyes immediately took in the trajectory of the musket and the scowling dark-haired Otherworlder she was pointing it at. Leila, while taking cover from the bullets and bolts of magic from the main entrance’s direction, was exposed to the woman’s shot.
I could let her. It wouldn’t be me. It’d be an accident. Janize can’t blame us for a battle. We’d still have her surrender.
Besides, Leila doesn’t deserve to live. Why should she live after all the wrongs she’s committed? Why shouldn’t I just let her die.
Nobody would know. Few would care.
Ayax glanced down at her hands and at her staff. There was no black magic pooling around her. It was just her. Her decision to save or let die, the woman who killed her mother.
This was a woman who’d apologized and promised to let her do whatever she wanted to her. Who sought not her own safety but to protect the life and the child of the one she loved.
Ayax bit her lip and charged the enemy musketeer. However, her hesitation had cost her. She could see the musketeer pulling the trigger. There was no time for a Word of Power. Ayax slammed into her the musketeer. The weapon cracked, the bullet whizzing off course as Ayax pushed the woman over the railing.
But the screaming woman now grabbed onto Ayax and the troll found herself tumbling over.
Acting on instinct, the troll seized her enemy with both hands, her cat-like tail twisting to try to direct their momentum. The pair fell down, but Ayax was managing to get her legs atop the woman. Acting more on instinct, Ayax leapt off the musketeer, slammed into a Traditionalist knight and rolled clumsily over the ground.
Dazed by the impact, her sides and wrists screaming with pain, Ayax could just hear a stomach-churning thud. She chanced a glance and immediately looked away. The woman was very clearly dead, having hint the stone floor headfirst.
It was then she saw that standing over her was the heavily armoured Earl Darius halted dead in his tracks. He lifed his visor, and Ayax could see that despite the sweat that trickled down his face, his eyes remained wide with horror and rage.
“You killed her. You killed my daughter!” Roaring like a wounded animal, Darius swung down at Ayax with his sword. She managed to get her staff up, the metal chomping into the wood. Again and again the Earl brought his weapon down. Aching, exhausted and far far too close for comfort, Ayax scrabbled back, trying to escape. But the earl was possessed with grief and fury and the desperation of a cornered animal.
“Die! Die! Die and join your father and mother!”
Author’s Note: Oh dear, so Ayax has gotten over her anger, but… she pissed off Darius anyway!

2023.06.06 07:30 kleh23 new breathing style

This is my take on a new breathing style designed to be a possible new crazy mc, i have not read the manga only the anime, made this pretty quick but wanted to see what others would think. any criticism is welcome!

constellation breathing

what is constellation breathing:
this is a breathing technique that uses the dust from the cosmos, also learning to speak with the cosmos and learn its secrets. the users sword will have the dust of the stars embedded within after learning CREATION NEBULA.
any attack will automatically apply dust to the target, "ONE DUST" is equal to .01ng in weight.

  1. star slash: a rapid 5 point slashing technique in the shape of a star ( this technique can be overly mastered to be done while performing other techniques at extreme speeds )

  1. cosmic rotation: through the users control of their gravity, rapidly rotating, creates a barrier of star dust that grows in size with rotation speed ( this technique can be overly mastered to create a large force of gravity that pulls in nearby targets hit with stardust )

  1. creation nebula: takes the star dust of nearby living things and covers the area attaching to enemies, attaching dust at a rate of ONE dust per second ( this technique can be overly mastered to create a constant nebula dust like mist constantly attaching to all enemies at a rate of 10 dust per second )

  1. constellation dash: user dashes to the 3 nearest enemies with dust attached returning to the cast point ( this techinque can be overly mastered to hit 5 enemies and choose the path of the dashes and return point within a wider area than before )

  1. forceful equinox: one strong slash that sends a sharp star dust blade from the dust in the sword toward the opponent ( this technique can be overly mastered to be done in a horizontal circle around the user that extends in all directions )

  1. dust walk: create dust blocks to run or stand on, only two may be active at one time and the user can teleport to each of them. ( this technique can be overly mastered to have 3 )

  1. dark / cosmos expansion: using all dust embedded into enemies, instantly increased the density of the dust to weigh down the opponents ( dark,, this technique can be overly mastered to be done automatically after any dust contact as a passive, thereby turning the dust into small dark dwarf masses)
(in order for the user to use the dark form they must have full mastery of forms 1-5, also having completed and mastered cosmic meditation and been blessed by the cosmos, meaning you have been chosen.

  1. dark matter eclipse: retrieves all dust embedded into enemies into the tip of the sword turning the users aura infinitly dark gaining extreme density along with intense gravity, the user then completes a long single slash attack that splits all atoms in half slashing through the dimension of the cosmos.
can only be used after retrieving 100ng's of dust ( dust that has had its density increased will go back to original .01ng weight )

  1. dark dwarf execute: activating this ability will create a dark dwarf mass in the sky that removes all light other than the users dust from the surrounding area, increasing the users power based on number of masses able to be formed ( the power gained by each mass is compounding, the first mass will give an
increase of 5% power from the users base, the second will give an increase of 15%/30%/75%/150%/300%. ddif the usersd activates all 6 dark dwarf masses, the user can absorb them, combining their life force with the dark masses turning into the dust of the cosmos, gaining the speed that of light, power to that of an
exploding sun and the gravity to that of a black hole, the user will then die ( from combining life force with the dark mass ) after 10 minutes of use, capable of full power till the end with no fluxuation. the user can create the 6 masses and choose not to obsorb them )

2023.06.06 07:30 nun_atoll Quick March

Paul checked and rechecked the extra little bundle in his suitcase, then closed the whole thing up. Setting the case near his door, he went and gently lifted Danny from the cot, then tucked the still sleeping child into the front of his coat, as he so often had when they went out for a walk. He had rigged a spare shirt around himself as a kind of seat for the baby, so that the situation in the coat was mostly secure.
He was so careful how he went, picking the suitcase back up and slipping quietly from his room. All of his stuff was cleared out, except for some spare things he left bundled and tagged for various housemates, and he had made his bed as a sort of gesture.
Passing Daisy and Trick's room, he paused just long enough to pull the note he had written them from his pocket and slide it under the door. Then he went on, down the stairs and toward the front door.
"Headin' out early?" Nick muttered, half starting up from the sofa.
"Shhh! I... It's nothing."
"Not nothin' man. You got a suitcase, and I can see from your coat that Danny's with ya. The fuck's up?"
After a furtive glance around — was this some odd trap? — Paul shook his head and went closer to Nick.
"Look, if Mandy's not back soon, Hallie'll turn Danny in as abandoned. No tellin' where he'd end up. I... Well, I'm takin' 'im to my parents. They'll know what to do."
"And what if Mandy shows up and wants her kid back?"
"I left Daisy and Trick a note. They'll know how to reach me. I trust them."
Nick nodded, but smiled oddly.
"Ya trust me?"
"I... Sure. I mean, if I didn't, I'd've just bolted when you started talkin' to me."
Now Nick laughed and stood.
"Where do your parents live?"
"'Round Somerset. Probably at the moment they're at their little place in Cornwall. Figure if I'm already at their house with Danny when they get back... Well, they won't exactly turf me out."
"Lucky you."
Paul shrugged.
"Sure. Well. I'll see ya."
"Yup. See ya."
Paul jangled the front door open and stepped out into the early morning fog. It was not much of a walk to the station he needed, but still he felt weak and hopeless. Probably he was doing precisely the wrong thing, but what else was he supposed to do? He had heard just enough of Wally's tales of being in care to know he did not want that fate for Danny.
He had got much of the way down the street toward where he would need to make a turn when he heard the flaps of running feet behind him.
"Hey! Hey Paul, wait!"
Glancing back, he saw Nick looming through the fog, a duffel bag in one hand, seabag in the other, guitar strapped to his back.
"Nick, what the..."
"Fancy some company?"
"I mean... Well, sure. But your band..."
"Ah. That band's finished. Alf quit, and Jean means to. I can always start a new band."
"You... You wanna come along?"
"Why not? Some time outta London'd do us both some good. Well, the three of us."
Nick reached over just inside Paul's coat and ruffled the baby's hair. Paul, meanwhile, felt his heart unaccountably begin to race.

2023.06.06 07:29 Sepulchral_Malice Curlsmith vs Briogeo vs Ouidad vs etc…

Heya, I could really use some help here. To keep things simple, I have no idea how to care for my hair. Despite my best efforts, my hair is coarse, extremely dry, thick, frizzy, and tangled. From what I can tell, my hair is also high-porosity. For my routine, I currently use the Shea Moisture strengthen and restore shampoo, conditioner, and leave in as instructed, although I have to use quite a bit to even achieve somewhat decent results that get ruined as soon as I sleep. I have very short hair (about one and a half inches on top and around half an inch on the sides and back), but I still attempt to detangle, define, and evenly distribute product. I cleanse my hair as needed with Mane n’ Tail original shampoo to remove any potential build-up. I even sleep on a satin pillowcase. I really don’t know what I’m doing here, and every product that I research ends up being too expensive for me to warrant trying in the first place, or is full of silicones, parabens, paraffins, or polyquaterniums, which only cause build-up or a godawful texture in my case. I’m thinking of just trying the ridiculously expensive brands out of sheer desperation, but even then, I don’t know which products to use. Every quiz I come across is designed with long hair in mind, and while I’m trying to grow it out, I need to know how to care for it in the meantime. Could anyone lend me a hand here? I’m so incredibly lost.

2023.06.06 07:29 NightCities13 88 Years Later-Game 7-Full Games

Day 1
This year’s arena was a beach that went around in a circle around a lake. The sand was golden, and plenty of palm trees were present.
The usual weapons, supplies, and consumables were included in the cornucopia, and the backpacks were stationed on the outskirts.
When the bell rang, Michetta ran forwards and grabbed a backpack, using it as a makeshift float to move to the opposite side of the arena. Milton grabbed a backpack and ran, while Atticus and Sabina killed eight tributes, with Atticus killing the boy from 3, the girl from 5, the boy from 7, and Denis (10), while Sabina killed the girl from 8, the boy from 11, the girl from 12, and sadly Nica (3).
Both ran after fleeing tributes, and eventually came across Milton, who tried to run, but Sabina threw a spear into his head, killing him.
It took an hour and a half for Michetta to float to the opposite end of the arena, and she rested beneath a palm tree.
Dina (10) found Bodhi (12) trying to steal some bread, and killed him with her machete. Meanwhile Atticus and Sabina found and killed Reid (4) and Nolan (1).
That night, the portraits of Nolan from 1, Nica and the boy from 3, Reid from 4, the girl from 5, the boy from 7, the girl from 8, Milton from 9, Denis from 10, the boy from 11, and Bodhi and the girl from 12, leaving twelve tributes remaining.
Day 2
Michetta decided to move again the next morning, floating to a new area. Via (1) saw her, and Michetta used a throwing knife from her backpack to kill Via. She then moved again back to the cornucopia and took a scythe. Atticus and Sabina killed Derry (6), and Ron (5) when he came to explore the cannon. Wateria (4) killed Dina (10) with her trident when the two came across each other.
That night, the portraits of Via from 1, Ron from 5, Derry from 6, and Dina from 10 were shown in the sky, leaving eight tributes left.
Day 3
The next day, Sabina killed Wateria, while Atticus killed Balsara (7) with the two meeting back at the cornucopia. Michetta found Cameo (8) sleeping and stabbed him in the head, and also saw Rosalia (11) sleeping up a tree and killed her.
That night, the portraits of Wateria from 4, Balsara from 7, Cameo from 8, and Rosalia from 11 were shown in the sky, leaving only Sabina and Atticus from 2, Verona from 6, and Michetta from 9 remaining.
Day 4
The next day, Michetta was awoken by a cannon, and jumped up from her palm tree position. This cannon belonged to Verona, who was killed by Atticus with his sword.
Sabina and Atticus agreed to work together to kill the last tribute. Michetta arrived back at the cornucopia and was attacked by both Sabina and Atticus.
Michetta clearly had not been expecting this, and tried to flee, but Sabina three a spear that went straight through her head and out the other side.
Sabina and Atticus then turned to each other, and both congratulated each other on a job well done. Sabina then lunged at Atticus, stabbing him in the stomach with her spear.
Atticus was in pain, but managed to throw Sabina’s spear to the side, and swiped with his sword, cutting her throat.
A final cannon sounded, and eighteen year old Atticus Cross of District 2 was announced as the victor of the 107th Hunger Games.
Atticus was flown to a hospital, where his stomach wound was healed. Atticus returned to District 2, where he married a young lady named Anastasia Hopewell, and had two sons, Apollonius and Aristocles, and two daughters, Sabina after his ally, and Lissa.
Atticus mentored the male tributes of District 2, while Horus mentored the males, until his retirement.

2023.06.06 07:27 peckers12 20 [M4F] Chicago- Looking to find someone to vibe with again.

Man I didn't think I'd ever be at the point at which I'd be here making a post, but life is surprising sometimes. With a year and a half behind me since I was last in a relationship, and some help from my friends, I feel now is the time to get back out there on the dating scene.
For some info about me: 20 years old, 5'8, slightly overweight but looking to start dieting and lose said weight. I'm a big big reader, along with a movie fan. I do also write and hope to make a career of it one day (whether that be as an author or journalism we'll just have to see, either way I kinda need it to work out because I'm pretty bad at math lmao.) In addition, I love me some good anime/manga. Right now I'm on that one piece grind, and would love for someone to join me for it. Currently about to head into punk hazard so I have a little bit to go before I catch up and get to wano. Otherwise, I'm a sucker for romance anime, and have loved every second of Love is War. And on the manga side spice and wolf has held my attention for quite some time. Dnd has also become and recent obsession of mine, started playing with my friends at work and I have been loving it. Curse of Strahd has been a blast and it would be awesome to have someone else to talk to about it! And lastly, I game. Much like everyone else here on reddit. My current main games are D2 (a good old day one raider if that gives you any context as to how much I've played. Still waiting on my RoN raid jacket lmao.) And Monster hunter, both rise and world. And
Lastly, what I'm looking for: Preferably, someone local, or at least someone willing to travel, or meet halfway. But being local is ideal. I tried a ldr before and it didn't exactly work out. I have little preference on appearance or stuff like that. I just want a companion (and maybe someone to watch one piece with.) With whom I can share the happy moments with. And with that, My name is Zach, and I hope to hear from you soon.

2023.06.06 07:22 Bovine_Arithmetic I’m not a volunteer? Okay.

In the 1990s I was a college student studying Botany. A local botanical garden sponsored a plant sale every year, which brought in dozens of vendors of rare and native plants and probably upwards of a thousand plant fanatics. People would drop thousands of dollars on plants at this sale.
The botanic garden had a volunteer policy that was basically “work for two hours helping at the sale and you get in a half hour before the general public.” I seldom bought anything, but I knew and chatted with several of the vendors, and it was nice to peruse without the insane crush of people.
The mostly elderly volunteers did various tasks like man the cash registers and information booth, and the younger ones like me would set up tables or help people carry out their purchases.
One year I discovered that I was really fast at assembling boxes. The botanic garden had boxes printed just for the sale, they were basically cardboard flats for carrying plants. At some point I started coming two hours early just to put together boxes. I would do 20 while others were struggling to make one. By the end of two hours, I would have a huge stack of boxes that would last through most of the sale.
The last year I volunteered, there was a new person in charge of the volunteers. When I showed up and started putting together boxes, she came up to me and said “what are you doing?”
“I’m putting together boxes.”
“You’re not on the list.”
“There’s a list? I’m just a volunteer.”
“Volunteers are required to work 8 hours in the garden every year, and I’ve never seen you before.”
This was news to me, having been doing the same thing for several years with no issues. Seemed suspicious considering most of the volunteers were in their 70s or 80s.
I had encountered this type of person before, so I knew better than to try to debate policy.
“Well, okay,” I said, dropping the box I was putting together and walking to the back of the line of people waiting to get in. I had only been there long enough to put about a dozen boxes together. The stacks of unassembled boxes sat there and no one came to put them together. After the tiny stack of boxes was gone, people had to put together their own boxes and they were pissed. The line went really slow as every person had to stop and make their own box. A minor inconvenience multiplied by a thousand people becomes a real problem.
I’m just sorry that the public had to bear the brunt of it.
