2023.06.01 00:22 AlphaBladeYiII My take on Han and Leia's wedding.

Leia Organa was a great many things, depending on the setting.
To the rebellion, she was a General. A leader who'd run countless operations for Intelligence and other divisions. She was someone who'd served The Alliance diligently since her days as a spy in the Imperial senate. And to the nascent New Republic, she was a politician. Someone who would lead in a different way, and begin the long overdue process of rebuilding. Someone who would champion the rights and lives of people, and work to make those lives better.
But to those who remained of her people, Leia Organa was a princess.
As the last survivor of Alderaan's royalty, Leia was the keeper of her world's culture, history and traditions. To the remaining Alderaanians, she was not merely a leader, but also a symbol and a beacon that'd rallied them from across the stars towards a new home in the colony of New Alderaan on Dantooine. And Leia didn't miss the symbolism of the choice.
A world primarily covered in grasslands, lakes and rivers; what Dantooine lacked in Alderaan's once-famous mountain ranges, it made up for with its pleasant nature and fertile soil. How the planet avoided being turned into an agriworld for so long, Leia didn't know. But she certainly wasn't complaining.
The population of Dantooine had always been small, consisting mainly of single-family settlements and small communities. Hence why the colony of New Alderaan, built at the site of the rebellion's long-gone temporary base, had quickly become the largest settlement on the planet by far. The colony consisted of a beautiful city that incorporated every aspect of Alderaanian architecture, with several farms surrounding its outskirts. Said farms focused especially on the now-rare Alderaanian cattle and crops, to say nothing of the preservation centers dedicated to restoring Alderaanian flora and fauna in every way available.
Her people had wanted to crown her as Queen in place of her late mother, but Leia had declined. For as Queen, she would have to dedicate herself fully to New Alderaan, and Leia knew that she wouldn't be able to do that for a very long time. Although she didn't miss the irony of both her mothers holding the title of Queen at some point.
Nevertheless, today was an important day for the survivors or Alderaan.
Leia sat in the chamber she'd been assigned as a dressing room in New Alderaan's great hall, the white dress she wore practically gleaming. She'd chosen the same one she'd worn for the celebration on Yavin IV all those years ago, on the day where she'd presented those medals to the two men who would go on to become the most important people in her life. It was a day both deeply painful and hopeful. A day on which she lost and gained almost everything in her life.
"If you're nervous, remember that Han is probably producing enough sweat to fill Mon Cala's oceans." Her maid-of-honor quipped, almost finished with her hair. Leia chuckled and did her best to keep her head still. She and her oldest friend had settled on her wearing her hair down, with some Alderaanian flowers embedded into its curls and small braids.
"I'm not nervous, Winter." The Princess said. "Although I'm certain Chewie is barely keeping him from freaking out."
"Can't say I blame him." Her old friend said with a grin. "The Princess and The Scoundrel. Almost feels out of a bedtime story."
Leia's smile turned bittersweet. Her life was certainly no fairytale, nor had she ever been a storybook Princess. Back when they were kids, people would often mistake Winter for the princess because of her natural grace and poise, which contrasted Leia's somewhat cantankerous personality. Her antics had given everyone hell for a long time back then, creating numerous amusing memories that she currently cherished.
The door to the room opened, admitting Evaan Verlaine. A tall, blonde Alderaanian pilot, Verlaine was both a decorated hero of Yavin and a close friend. "Everything is set, your highness. And I'm telling you this now before anything starts: If Solo ever does something you don't like, come to me."
Leia turned to face Verlaine just as Winter finished. "I think Chewbacca already has that covered, but I appreciate the offer..." The Princess said, noting the highly unusual sight that was Evaan in a dress. Although she wore the bright yellow garment well, Leia suspected that her friend didn't entirely enjoy her current attire.
Everything felt suffocating to Han, from the decently-sized dressing room, to the fancy suit he didn't feel comfortable in. Even Chewie's reassuring hands on his shoulders weren't much of a help.
It was happening. It was really, truly happening. The most amazing woman in the Galaxy was about to become his wife, and he couldn't be more scared. He'd faced Darth Vader, torture and the full might of the Empire, but today was somehow the most scared he'd ever been.
"I haven't seen you like that since the job on Denon." Lando said with his trademark suaveness, seeing through Han's evidently unconvincing calm. "Don't worry. I'm sure Leia's more reasonable than Sana."
Normally, Han would've had a scathing reply to his old friend's joke, but his mind was simply not functioning normally at the moment. He was terrified and knew why. He was afraid of not being good enough a husband or a father. Of messing things up. But he was also done letting those fears stop him.
He loved Leia. More than he loved anyone or nothing in his entire life. And he would do his damndest to be the man she deserved.
The door opened to admit the young man who would soon be his brother-in-law. "Looking great, Luke." Lando said. And coming from the most fashionable man in the rebellion, that meant a lot. By that point, Han had given up on counting how many capes Lando had.
"Thanks, Lando." Luke said cheerily "How's the groom doing?"
Lando chuckled, "Exactly as expected."
"That bad, huh?"
"Are you two going to do something useful, or should I have Chewie show you the door?"
Lando showed his palms. "Easy, old pal. We're just trying to cheer you up. You know it's normal to be stressed on your big day."
Han snorted. "As if you would ever know."
Lando chuckled again. "You got me. It'll be a dark day before anyone tied this old scoundrel down. I'd never have it in me to leave behind so many broken hearts."
Han finally smiled. "Always loved your modesty, old pal."
Not that the Corellian didn't know his share of women in the days since leaving Corellia. But aside from Leia, he had only over loved one woman, and that bond hadn't ended the way he hoped at all. Thankfully, Leia and Q'ira couldn't be more different.
"There's nothing to fear, Han." Luke said, seeing through his facade as usual. "No one and nothing makes Leia happy more than you do. And you're both no longer the people I met all those years ago. You're made for each other now."
Somehow, Luke's words seemed to get to him, pacifying his raging mind. "You're not using the force to calm me down, are you?" the former smuggler asked jokingly.
Luke smirked. "I would only do that as a last resort. And only because Leia would kill us all if the wedding doesn't go as planned."
The ballroom of the Great Hall had a beige-and-sky-blue color scheme that worked well with the natural light passing through the skylight. The chamber had been hastily modified by adding a central podium and wide seats arranged in concentric circles to accommodate the guests. A part of the Alderaanian traditions, this arrangement was done to evoke the oneness of the union.
Luke stood behind the groom, alongside Chewbacca and Lando. The Wookiee's fur was surprisingly well-groomed, and Lando looked as dashing as ever in his dark blue suit and cape. Luke had opted for a simple black suit with a white tunic underneath, not unlike the one he wore at Ktath'atn. Although that wasn't a memory he wanted to relive at the moment.
The ceremonies, both Alderaanian and Corellian, were nearly finished by now. The Wedding was being officiated by a pontifex of the Brotherhood of Cognizance, a monastic order of the Naboo faith system. The elderly man had been sent by the Queen of Naboo herself at Leia's request, and she'd told Luke that it was her way of honoring their mother on their special day.
Behind Leia, stood three of her closest friends: her childhood friend Winter Retrac, pilot Evaan Verlaine and smuggler Sana Starros. Luke didn't miss the irony of Sana's presence, given the fact that she had once been briefly involved with Han herself. All three women looked beautiful, but none more so than his sister. And Luke suspected that the sheer joy he sensed from her contributed to her breathtaking beauty today.
And as he looked at his sister and the man who was like a brother to him, Luke saw their future. Not through The Force, but through the love they all shared.
Their path wouldn't be easy, because nothing worth it was ever easy. They were both beings of fire, with heads that could be as hard as solid rock. But they loved each other deeply. And no matter the spats and arguments, they will always find their way back to each other at the end of the day.
It was a rather simple wedding, considering it was for a Princess. But it had nearly everyone from their remaining loved ones, and that was what truly mattered. Nevertheless, there were many people they wished could be there. People who had become one with The Force a long time ago.
Luke frowned as a strange expression crossed Leia's face for a moment, but it softened again as a bittersweet smile crossed it. Following her line of sight, Luke found himself adapting a similar smile.
For in one corner of the room, handsome and bright, stood their father with a grin on his face.

2023.06.01 00:22 DefiledTarnished How can I become a better ally to trans women?

Let me preface this, I am not a chaser. I have had this allegation levied at me before but I assure you with 100% certainty that I'm not in the game just to put some heels behind some ears, my primary goal as of 2023 with over 500 pieces of legislation passed in the United States on pace to double that near the end of the year is to show my love and support for trans women, though I've taken to just calling them what they are women. I did find love on this subreddit about a month ago but uh, different time, different account before I 'quit' reddit.
Yes, I must admit I am not a practicing leftist, but, I love to learn and I figured that this community would be a good place to do that as this is a fairly left subreddit without getting into "wokescold" territory where I'll get told that I should give black trans women money, as a black man, because I'm apart of a group that causes so much violence against them.
so, all I'm asking is, is there maybe some reading I can engage with? Videos I should watch? Things I should do? As of 2023 I'm still pretty new to being progressive given I grew up in a conservative Democrat voting house hold. Conservative in the sense of well, LGBT stuff is a mess and the F-word got throne around my home more than the N-word just to shed some light, given I'm from beautiful Little Rock Arkansas' rice country.
So yeah, I love and respect trans women as the queens they are and I want to do my part to make America a place worthy of them, even if I am just a lowly footstool.

2023.06.01 00:22 ralo_ramone An Otherworldly Scholar [LitRPG, Isekai] - Chapter 8

The System was a scam, period.
I had leveled up five whole times after our fight against the Wendigo and I had not received any kind of reward. Sure, my mana pool had grown a little bit and my [Mana Exhaustion] had been slowly receding, but other than that I wasn’t getting stronger, faster or more agile. I didn’t even have a measly new skill to show for it.
“What a scam, I want a refund.” I muttered.
“I already told you, there was only a small chance for the Wendigo to have an elemental crystal. You only start seeing stuff like that after level fifty.” Elincia huffed in front of me. The mountainous path was steep but at least we had left the forest behind. Elincia had told me that Farcrest was just beyond the mountain range.
“People should get shit after leveling up five damn times!” I angrily said as if Elincia was somehow responsible for the shitty progression system.
The white haired suddenly stopped and turned around. For an instant I thought she was going to scold me but then, out of nowhere, she put her hands on my shoulders and locked her eyes into mine. I tried to control my blush with little success and hoped she would attribute it to the arduous hike.
“I’m sorry to break this down to you, Robert Clarke, but support classes don’t get crap from the System.” Elincia said with a solemn tone just to smile a moment later. “In any case, you should be happy because your mana pool is so huge. Scholars are known for having lots of mana but, dude, you are on another level.”
One thing was sure, I wasn’t getting used to receiving compliments any time soon.
[Awareness]: You are absolutely correct.
I ignored the System prompt. At least I was getting very good at doing that.
“The amount of mana you need to materialize a [Mana Blade] without a skill is ridiculous. Are you sure you are a low level Scholar?” Elincia asked as we resumed the march. As we came near the edge of the Farlands, she grew more relaxed.
There haven't been any signs of monsters since the previous night.
“You still don’t believe in me?” I replied.
“At this point you could say you are the son of a Fire Dragon and a virginal maiden and I’d believe you.” Elincia shrugged her shoulders. “It might be a long shot but, have you ever been in a System Shrine?”
As good a liar as I was, I couldn’t just bullshit my way out of such a direct question. Elincia was too keen for that. A System Shrine sounded like basic knowledge.
“Haven’t heard about that in my life.” I replied.
Elincia stopped for a second and gave me one of her looks of disbelief that made me feel like a kid without his homework. I wondered if she had practiced that expression. After all, she had five stacks of [Favorite Teacher], she might as well have experience publicly humiliating kids.
“You don’t have System Shrines in the City of Light?” Elincia asked in disbelief.
I just shrugged my shoulders to avoid giving an answer. Also, there was the fact that the hike was taking a toll on my lungs. I didn’t know how Elincia could sustain a conversation. If I knew I was going to get transported to a magical world, I would’ve exercised more back on Earth.
“The System blocks certain titles from low level individuals.” Elincia started explaining. “Let’s say a Lv.1 Soldier survives the scuffle against a flock of Fire Dragons and gets the [Dragon Killer] title which gives fire resistance. There is a high chance the System withholds the title from the Soldier on the basis that [Dragon Killer] is an overpowered title for a mere Lv.1.”
I nodded. It made sense the System had a method to prevent power leveling, if only to maintain some semblance of normalcy. Earth would be plunged into chaos very quickly if suddenly a bunch of people with godly powers appeared out of nowhere.
“With the help of a System Shrine and a competent System Zealot the Soldier could unlock [Dragon Killer] even without the required level.” Elincia finished with her explanation. “Maybe you are benefiting from a hidden title.”
“Maybe,” I replied.
I couldn’t imagine having any useful titles considering how ordinary my life has been before arriving in the Farlands. When I was in college, I was able to comfortably outdrink all my group of friends, but then I lost that skill just after graduating. And there was the fact my only title at level one was [Lonely Boy] so my hopes of having a nice hidden title weren’t particularly high.
“Does Farcrest have a System Shrine?” I asked.
My question prompted a dry laugh from Elincia.
“Don’t get your hopes too high. Farcrest is a shithole.” She warned me as we climbed a rocky path between the two mountain ranges that separated the Farlands from the Kingdom of Ebros. We were almost there.
“Why is there a town so close to the Farlands anyway?” I asked.
Elincia lent me her hand and helped me climb a step boulder.
“To prevent monsters from pouring into the Kingdom. Think of Farcrest as a cork.” Elincia pulled me up the boulder.
Suddenly, we were on top of the path between two mountain ranges. I glanced down the valley ahead expecting to see a handful of rustic cabins scattered across a modest patch of farmland with a rotten palisade and a muddy road; however, Farcrest was a town in its own right. It was located on the top of a soft hill, surrounded by a high stone wall with several watchtowers. An impressive church made of the same dark stone rose above the thatched rooftops and, on the highest part of the hill, a great hall, half palace, half fortress, dominated the valley.
“Doesn’t look like a shithole to me.” I said as we started the descent from the other side of the hill. It looked like a picturesque European medieval town.
“You’ll see.” Elincia replied, with a hopeless sigh.
About two hours later, we reached the city outskirts. The main road was neglected and the farmland’s irrigation canals blocked by debris. As we approached the city, the picture became even more bleak. I didn’t need [Awareness] to tell me the crops were sickly and weak. Most of the farmers were older men and women that moved slowly among the plots of land.
“Where are the young people?” I asked, discarding the idea of a disease. If there was a plague ravaging Farcrest, then there wouldn’t be old people working on the fields.
“They are in the eastern frontier, fighting the King’s wars.” Elincia replied dryly.
I recalled Elincia telling me there was a shortage of alchemical ingredients due to a war in the western frontier.
“War against who?” I asked. A war-torn country might not be too welcoming to strangers like me.
“Against the Farlands. The king is obsessed with expanding the kingdom’s territory and uncharted lands and their resources.” Elincia sighed. “It’s a meat grinder. A bunch of low level kids trying to push deeper and deeper into monster territory while the real warriors are protecting the imperial capital and the frontiers.”
[Awareness] sent me down a stream of reasoning. Numbers and equipment were the basis of any military force back on Earth. However, in this world, a single individual with a powerful class and a high level could potentially be a one man army.
“What about power leveling the new recruits? You know, pairing them with a bunch of high level people and fighting monsters together?” I asked again.
“You might be a genius, Robert Clarke! How had no one thought of that before?” Elincia replied as she mindlessly drummed her lips in a gesture I recognized as deep concentration.
“You really think Kings, Scholars, and Generals didn’t think about powerleveling new recruits? The System doesn’t allow that.” A tired smile was drawn on Elincia’s face.
Seeing Elincia’s expression, I decided to drop the topic about the war. I wondered how many of her friends and acquaintances have gone to the frontline to never be heard of again. The Farlands were a dangerous place and the King’s troops lacked the advantage of firearms like me.
“Let’s go to my place.” Elincia said as we approached the city walls. “You should make yourself presentable before going to the Great Hall for that transit permit, and we have to appraise the herbs.”
It didn’t take a genius to realize Elincia was desperate for alchemical materials, otherwise she wouldn’t invite a stranger like me to her home. Or maybe there was a really charitable soul beneath the layers of mistrust and suspicion. The aftermath of the combat against the Wendigo had brought us a lot closer.
“Sounds like a plan to me.” I replied wondering if I was going to meet Elincia’s kid. Or her partner.
Farcrest was only a few hundred meters away. Up close, the black stone wall was taller and sturdier than I initially thought. Then I remembered they weren’t built to resist medieval armies but the assault of skills and magic spells. The double wooden gate was wide open but nobody bothered to stop us or ask about the business that brought us to the city.
As we passed through the hole in the wall, I spied into a guardhouse. I saw young men and women playing cards and drinking booze. Well-fed and well-dressed troops loyal to the Marquis, I assumed. Up close, Farcrest was further away from the bucolic city and dangerously close to a feudal dystopia.
Elincia and I walked along the wall towards the northern district. As we progressed through the city, houses became more and more neglected to the point it seemed outright abandoned to me. Kids ran barefoot in the street, fetid puddles adorned the alleys, and most of the stores were closed. Farcrest was a ghost town.
“How long has there been war?” I asked.
“Seven years now?” Elincia replied. “We are close.”
After five more minutes of meandering through alleys, we emerged in front of a great manor made of stained white walls and washed out blue shingles. For a moment I was out of words. Was Elincia the heir of a noble family fallen from grace? Her dignified appearance and beautiful features made me think so, however, she was a bit too wild to be a noblewoman.
The manor was old. The white painting of the front was peeling away and water stains plagued the nooks and crannies of the structure. A low stone wall marked the perimeter and a quick glance revealed it had served in the past as the foundation for an iron fence long gone. The only section of the outer wall that had survived the decay of the city was the iron gate.
Elincia opened it and we entered the front yard. I was about to ask a hundred questions when the front door slammed open and a stampede of small kids came to meet us. I managed to count at least a dozen before they reached us. Elincia greeted them with arms open as the little ones burst into tears at the first sight of the woman.
I froze. Not all of them were human.
There were two small snakefolk kids with bright yellow eyes. The blue-scaled snake-kid was dressed in a ragged brown dress while the green-scaled one had an oversized white shirt and frayed pants. At the end of the retinue, somewhat late to the reception, appeared a small winged girl with a hesitant gait. Her beautiful golden feathers contrasted with the old pillowcase she used as a dress.
Before I could react, both of the snake-kids jumped into my arms, crying a river of tears. Surprisingly enough, they were warm to the touch. I tried to exchange a glance with Elincia but she was busy trying to calm a handful of small kids on her own.
How many kids Elincia had?

2023.06.01 00:22 Available_Advisor610 Feeling abandoned by my family

At 13 weeks I found out my baby no longer has a heart beat, and a week later I actively miscarried.
It was my first pregnancy and I moved cities to be closer to my family for support but they’ve been largely mia. My husband and I both lost our jobs the same month I learned I was pregnant, and the whole time up until I miscarried, I was suffering from debilitating nausea that made basic tasks difficult - my family knew about it but didn’t offer help or check on me unless I initiated it. It was weeks at a time between contact.
When I miscarried my parents and sibling were overseas on vacation and other than texting their condolences in response to the news, none of them called me or checked in again. My dad returned home the day after I found out the baby had died, but he only contacted my husband nearly a week later, after I complained to my mum that I felt abandoned. I still haven’t heard from my dad directly.
My husband has been my only support but he only helps if given specific instructions and he gave me a hard time about buying myself easy to digest snacks and wanting to pay for streaming service to distract myself when I started miscarrying.
The grief of losing my baby had been hard but feeling abandoned by the people closest to me has been so much harder. I feel like they treated my pregnancy and miscarriage like something happening to an acquaintance - sad but ultimately not their concern.

2023.06.01 00:21 JoshAsdvgi The Fairy Wives

The Fairy Wives

The Fairy Wives

Once a time there dwelt in the forest two braves, one of whom was called the Moose and the other the Marten.
Moose was a great hunter, and never returned from the chase without a fine deer or buffalo, which he would give to his old grandmother to prepare for cooking.
Marten, on the other hand, was an idler, and never hunted at all if he could obtain food by any other means.
When Moose brought home a trophy of his skill in the hunt Marten would repair to his friend's lodge and beg for a portion of the meat.
Being a good-natured fellow, Moose generally gave him what he asked for, to the indignation of the old grandmother, who declared that the lazy creature had much better learn to work for himself.
"Do not encourage his idle habits," said she to her grandson.
"If you stop giving him food he will go and hunt for himself."
Moose agreed with the old woman, and having on his next expedition killed a bear, he told the grandmother to hide it, so that Marten might know nothing of it.
When the time came to cook the bear-meat, however, the grandmother found that her kettle would not hold water, and remembering that Marten had just got a nice new kettle, she went to borrow his.
"I will clean it well before I return it," she thought.
"He will never know what I want it for."
But Marten made a very good guess, so he laid a spell on the kettle before lending it, and afterward set out for Moose's lodge.
Looking in, he beheld a great quantity of bear-meat.
"I shall have a fine feast to-morrow," said he, laughing, as he stole quietly away without being seen.
On the following day the old grandmother of Moose took the borrowed kettle, cleaned it carefully, and carried it to its owner.
She never dreamed that he would suspect anything.
"Oh," said Marten, "what a fine kettleful of bear-meat you have brought
"I have brought you nothing," the old woman began in astonishment, but
a glance at her kettle showed her that it was full of steaming bear-meat.
She was much confused, and knew that Marten had discovered her plot by magic art.
Though Marten was by no means so brave or so industrious as Moose, he nevertheless had two very beautiful wives, while his companion had not even one.
Moose thought this rather unfair, so he ventured to ask Marten for one of his wives.
To this Marten would not agree, nor would either of the women consent to be handed over to Moose, so there was nothing for it but that the braves should fight for the wives, who, all
unknown to their husband, were fairies.
And fight they did, that day and the next and the next, till it grew to be a habit with them, and they fought as regularly as they slept.
In the morning Moose would say: "Give me one of your wives."
"Paddle your own canoe," Marten would retort, and the fight would begin.
Next morning Moose would say again: "Give me one of your wives."
"Fish for your own minnows," the reply would come, and the quarrel would be
continued with tomahawks for arguments.
"Give me one of your wives," Moose persisted.
"Skin your own rabbits!"
Meanwhile the wives of Marten had grown tired of the perpetual skirmishing.
So they made up their minds to run away.
Moose and Marten never missed them: they were too busy righting.
All day the fairy wives, whose name was Weasel, travelled as fast as they could, for they did not want to be caught.
But when night came they lay down on the banks of a stream and watched the stars shining
through the pine-branches.
"If you were a Star-maiden," said one, "and wished to marry a star, which one would you choose?"
"I would marry that bright little red one," said the other.
"I am sure he must be a merry little fellow."
"I," said her companion, "should like to marry that big yellow one.
I think he must be a great warrior."
And so saying she fell asleep.
When they awoke in the morning the fairies found that their wishes were fulfilled.
One was the wife of the great yellow star, and the other the wife of the little red one.
This was the work of an Indian spirit, whose duty it is to punish unfaithful wives, and who had overheard their remarks on the previous night.
Knowing that the fulfilment of their wishes would be the best punishment, he transported them to the Star-country, where they were wedded to the stars of their choice.
And punishment it was, for the Yellow Star was a fierce warrior who frightened his wife nearly out of her wits, and the Red Star was an irritable old man, and his wife was obliged to wait on him hand and foot.
Before very long the fairies found their life in the Star-country exceedingly irksome, and they wished they had never quitted their home.
Not far from their lodges was a large white stone, which their husbands had forbidden them to touch, but which their curiosity one day tempted them to remove.
Far below they saw the Earth-country, and they became sadder and more home-sick than ever.
The Star-husbands, whose magic powers told them that their wives had been disobedient, were not really cruel or unkind at heart, so they decided to let the fairies return to earth.
"We do not want wives who will not obey," they said, "so you may go to your own country if you will be obedient once."
The fairies joyfully promised to do whatever was required of them if they might return home.
"Very well," the stars replied.
"You must sleep to-night, and in the morning you will wake and hear the song of the chickadee, but do not open your eyes.
Then you will hear the voice of the ground-squirrel; still you must not rise.
The red squirrel also you shall hear, but the success of our scheme depends on your remaining quiet.
Only when you hear the striped squirrel you may get up."
The fairies went to their couch and slept, but their sleep was broken by impatience.
In the morning the chickadee woke them with its song.
The younger fairy eagerly started up, but the other drew her back.
"Let us wait till we hear the striped squirrel," said she.
When the red squirrel's note was heard the younger fairy could no longer curb her impatience.
She sprang to her feet, dragging her companion with her.
They had indeed reached the Earth-country, but in a way that helped them but little, for they found themselves in the topmost branches of the highest tree in the forest, with no prospect of getting down.
In vain they called to the birds and animals to help them; all the creatures were too busy to pay any attention to their plight.
At last Lox, the wolverine, passed under the tree, and though he was the wickedest of the animals the Weasels cried to him for help.
"If you will promise to come to my lodge," said Lox, "I will help you."
"We will build lodges for you," cried the elder fairy, who had been thinking of a way of escape.
"That is well," said Lox; "I will take you down."
While he was descending the tree with the younger of the fairies the elder one wound her magic hair-string in the branches, knotting it skilfully, so that the task of undoing it would be no light one.
When she in her turn had been carried to the ground she begged Lox to return for her hair-string, which, she said, had become entangled among the branches.
"Pray do not break it," she added, "for if you do I shall have no good fortune."
Once more Lox ascended the tall pine, and strove with the knots which the cunning fairy had tied.
Meanwhile the Weasels built him a wigwam.
They filled it with thorns and briers and all sorts of prickly things, and induced their friends the ants and hornets to make their nests inside.
So long did Lox take to untie the knotted hair-string that when he came down it was quite dark.
He was in a very bad temper, and pushed his way angrily into the new lodge.
All the little creatures attacked him instantly, the ants bit him, the thorns pricked him, so that he cried out with anger and pain.
The fairies ran away as fast as they could, and by and by found themselves on the brink of a wide river.
The younger sat down and began to weep, thinking that Lox would certainly overtake them. But the elder was more resourceful. She saw the Crane, who was ferryman, standing close by, and sang a very sweet song in praise of his long legs and sort feathers.
“Will you carry us over the river ?” she asked at length.
“Willingly,” replied the Crane, who was very susceptible to,flattery, and he ferried them across the river.
They were just in time.
Scarcely had they reached the opposite bank when Lox appeared on the scene, very angry and out of breath.
“Ferry me across, Old Crooked-legs,” said he, and added other still more uncomplimentary remarks.
The Crane was furious, but he said nothing, and bore Lox out on the river.
“I see you,” cried Lox to the trembling fairies.
“I shall have you soon !”
“You shall not, wicked one,” said the Crane, and he threw Lox into the deepest part of the stream.
The fairies turned their faces homeward and saw him no more.

2023.06.01 00:21 CheatedInOhio Cheated into a default small claims judgment. Where to go from here?

Throwaway account due my main being known to be connected to me.
To begin with: No need for "get a lawyer" advice here, as I already intend to do so. Helpful information would be what type of lawyer, what to focus filing in, what to expect, etc.
State is Ohio.
A few months ago(early February) I was served with a definitively bogus small claims lawsuit - I was alleged to have been in the vicinity of an accident late last year and sued for damages(I was out of state on business on the day the accident occurred and could not have been anywhere near it). I responded appropriately and set up the court date, which was set to be a couple weeks. However, a week ago, I received notice of a default judgment issued against me. The plaintiff filed to have the date moved up and it was changed to mid-May. I was not properly informed. Court records indicate I was notified properly in mid-April via certified mail, but once again, I was out of town on business that day and could not have been notified. Nobody else lives in my house at all, let alone with authority to sign for certified mail addressed to me.
There are obviously shenanigans at work here, so I'd like to know the best way to approach this.

2023.06.01 00:21 mommyluvzyou [Tenant - US - WA] seeking advice for application denial

hi everyone. so im currently looking for housing and have found a great place that i was understandably denied for because of my poor credit (in the upper 500s, plz don't judge me). In the credit report I saw that I had two open accounts in collection. I paid those off as soon as I found out about them, they honestly got swept under the rug during the pandemic and as i was simultaneously preparing for my first child, so i honestly was not aware of them until the credit report. Additionally, I don't have much else on my credit report as I've never had a credit card or taken out any loans. I usually pay for everything in full and when it comes to school I get grants and scholarships.
Would an appeal help? I understand the landlord doesn't need to even acknowledge my appeal let alone accept, but I meet income requirements, have great rental history as well as other references that speak of my character, and am an active member in the neighborhood community (it is labeled as the arts district in my city)
I also inquired about paying a larger deposit. I'm confident I would make a great tenant as I always have, and the property is nearby where my daughter will be attending school, and also just around the corner from the gallery my partner and I run, which is why i am very interested in it. I spend nearly everyday in the neighborhood even without living there.
Have any landlords accepted an appeal after an initial denial? how do you feel about appeals as a landlord? do any tenants have any experience with this as well? thanks for any help

2023.06.01 00:20 ScratchTHEdutchie20 my mum is possibly calling the cops on my bully (TW: mild sexual assult & transphobia)

For many many months I have been getting bullied by a girl who is in a bunch of my classes who we will just call Madge and she is the WORST bully I have ever had , this is the list of the stuff she has done. (Sexual assault incident's) 1. Poked my butt once or twice in science class 2. Pinched my butt while I was going downstairs (Transphobic incidents) 1. When I was questioning myself if I was trans masc she said to me while I was in computing class that a guy in the same class wanted to go out with me and I said "I'm a guy by the way" and she started laughing. 2. The day after the computing class I heard her whisper to her pal while looking at me "She told me she was a guy.". (Physical assault) 1. She ran up shoved me into a door frame and one or two of her pals (it hurt) 2. Kicking my heels while I was walking I swung my elbow back to get her to back away and she just kept kicking till I yelled "WHAT THE HELL!". (The annoying incidents) 1. Trying to open my bag while I was walking in the hallway TWICE. 2. making a barking noise at me every day I'm a proud furry but it's getting annoying
(The scary one) I'm not sure if this is classed as stalking but first in school I was getting out of my period 3 class to go to math and I heard her on purpose pronunciation my Italian name and walking behind me so I pick up the pace and so does her and her friends so I'm now in a sprint while her 3 or 4 of her pals and one of the boys are calling me and running after me while the guy who we will just call Max is calling "(INSERT LONG ITALIAN NAME HERE)~! come here gorgeous~!." While I am saying to others while I'm heading Past "Sorry can I get past I'm being chased!" Until I land in my math class and my math teacher who we will just call Mr Penny asks me if I'm alright because my legs are shaking and I can barely breathe and I said that I was being chased and after class I was waiting for the others to go past then Mr Penny said "Here are the S5's walk with them they'll be nice to you so I say goodbye and start walking but then I hear them again so I start run. Once again I'm saying "sorry can I get past I'm being chased!" So I run down the down set of stairs while they chase and I'm still saying "sorry can I get past I'm being chased!" and I'm running up the up stairs to my English class and I clock it into my English class which I share with the boy who was chasing me and he's making fun of me running. my legs were shaky, I was teary and I could hardly breathe so I walked towards my English teacher's desk and I asked him if I could speak with him In private so he sent me outside of the classes and he soon joined and I tell him everything that happened up until that point he wrote it down and he tells me to " Stay outside the classroom for a bit to calm down and come back in on your own time." He re-entered the class and so did I. I got my work done then my English teacher who we will call Mr Awesome invited us to his club he hosts during lunch on that day in his class and I see Madge and one of her pals lurking outside of the classroom and her pal clocked me trying to hide from them she said "look it's (INSERT LONG ITALIAN NAME HERE)." "Hurry up (INSERT LONG ITALIAN NAME HERE)" "I think she's staying behind for classics club" the I check the hall still there, Mr Awesome checked it and he looked me in the eye and said to me"it's clear so it should be safe for you now but if you're being chased in the school again you run back up here to my room." And I thank him and I go downstairs to go up the street for lunch and three of Madge's friends see me and one said to the other "look it's (INSERT LONG ITALIAN NAME HERE)" and they start following me FOR THE 3RD TIME THAT DAY!. Then I see my best friend who I will call Fredrik and he instantly knew that something was wrong and he asked me if I was okay and I said "Fredrik I'm being chased we need to lose them." At first he thought that Madge's friends where joking then he realised that it was serious. So we dash through the dining hall and manage to lose them and we are walking up the street to go get lunch and I'm showing Fredrik my pride flag and I see Madge and one of her pals Infront of me so I am crouching behind Fredrik avoiding them then Max from behind sees me and yells "MADGE IT'S YOUR WEE PAL!" the she mispronounced my name again and her and her pal starts walking up to us and I yell "Fredrik we've gotta run!" Then Madge and her pal starts tryna approach us and I nearly make an exit when Madge's friend Steps towards my path and makes a roaring sound then I started to have a panic attack and I know that my uncles music shop is open and that he is there so thought tears of fear I scream "UNCLE DAVID WHERE ARE YOU!" then I get across the road whilst Fredrik is distracting them and he declined their offer to try a vape. I'm now running down the street Fredrik catching up and the girls chasing us I see a "back in 10 mins" sign and I say "God damnit uncle David!" Then I run up to the crossing where I see my uncle "h-h-hi uncle David"I said through tears then Fredrik catches up and the girls are a bit far behind, the green Man comes and I run to my uncle hug him tightly and scream through violent sobbing "UNCLE DAVID! WAAAA! I'M BEING CHASED!." And he said "who's chasing you?" And Fredrik offers to explain the situation and I see the two girls behind me laughing then they go back to the school. My uncle tells Me to get some lunch first then come to the shop, so I let Go and pick a packet of Reese's peanut butter cups and me and Fredrik go up to the counter and I give the money to my best bud and tell him that I'm in no state to talk to a co-op cashier and he handed over the cash and he carried the chocolate and hand's me the change and while we are walking to the music shop he told me "I might get in trouble but if they come back I'll defend you." I thank him and we enter the shop and my uncle tells us to go to the office because he was dealing with a customer. We wait a while and my uncle came to the office and we explain the situation and I started to recover from the panic attack then my uncle calls my mum who at the time was on the train back to Scotland and she was furious and told me to Stay out of school for the rest of the the day and after a while Fredrik went back to School and after more time my little sisters grandad picked me up and dropped me off at home. The day after my mum and me had a meeting with the school and got a statement from me and my mum brought up the stuff that they didn't sort like the sexual harassment and the heel kicking. The day after the meeting (today) Madge shoved me into a door frame and I told the member of staff who was at the meeting and she got a statement from me again and when I got home my mum asked me how I was and I told her about me getting rammed into a door frame and my mum had had it She called the school and was raging at them and then called my aunty Lianne to bring my cousin who we will call Daisy who is in higher kickboxing classes to come and beat the living snot outta Madge. And tomorrow my mum is calling the education board and possibly the cops and my mum asked me if I'm alright with calling the popo on Madge and I said yes. What do you think about it I could do with the support

2023.06.01 00:20 CoolerPenguin78 Can you always feel your heart beating with a panic attack?

Ok so I feel like I’m not having a panic attack but something else because when I have a panic attack I don’t feel my heart racing unless I put my hand on my chest to feel my heart rate. I feel like if I was having a panic attack that my I would feel my heart racing through my chest without touching my chest. The fact I can’t feel my heart beat freaks me out more.
I’m nearly over my anxiety but just had this question. I’ve had every test on my heart done that all suggests that my heart is healthy. Im getting a cardiac mri done on June 10th but the cardiologist doesn’t expect anything to show up.
Panic attacks for me are usually a feeling of
Light headedness
Restlessness (need to walk around)
Racing heart (can’t feel it unless I put my hand on my chest)
Feeling of impending doom
Hands feeling numb
Heart palpitations (rarely)

2023.06.01 00:20 Twayneeded Sept 2021

Had a breakdown. Told my spouse I needed more intimacy and was concerned about her lack of desire/sex. Mentioned how she told me in the past she no longer wanted or desired sex. It has been 6 months since the last time we had sex. I told her my wants and desires, my kinks and turn ons. She laughed in my face, called me a pervert, and said no she would not do any of that. Due to the effect of my medicine we agreed I would get off my medicine and we would make time to have sex on the weekend. I told her I don't feel wanted or desired. I feel like she doesnt want me around.
I had to work overtime today. I returned home and we went out for garage/estate sales. Had a good day.It's saturday and spouse slept with the kids again last night. Tonight the kids went to bed early and I thought we would have time to act like teenagers and actually have fun in bed. Her mom called around 9:30-10:00 pm. She stayed up talking to her for over an hour. I was upset because she didn't seem to care about my needs. instead of talking to her I acted out by
brushing my teeth and showering (trying to make myself desirable to her) while muttering to myself. I was angry and hurt that she had forgotten our talk. She then told me she was working on a surprise for me for my birthday but wouldn't divulge the details. That's almost 2months away. I told her I was desperate for companionship and she wanted to wait another 2 months and I don't even know if it was supposed to be a romantic surprise. We ended up having sex (though I think she felt guilted into it) She refused to let me give her oral. I had problems maintaining my erection and used my hands on heme to eventually finish. I started to feel a little better after our talk.
spouse got upset at ychild trying to teach her letters/numbers and ended up yelling at her. I recorded the interaction. She continually degrades me in front of the kids when she thinks I raise my voice even when I don't.

2023.06.01 00:20 Unfair-Acanthaceae-9 Minor Changes with potential major upside

TLDR: A list of changes that wouldn't take much dev time but may improve the overall experience.
The most recent wipe has had significant ups and downs. Unfortunately, some of the most significant issues continue to challenge the game i.e. networking, AI behavior, economy, recoil & movement, etc. These structural changes will likely continue to take a long time to resolve and require major overhauls (if they are ever resolved). However, this wipe has also shown some changes that require very little dev work or time can create major improvements to the game.
What are some minor changes that you feel could punch above their weight to greatly improve the game's experience?
Some groundrules: (1) proposed change should (theoretically) require minimal dev time. (2) Changes should not remove or replace major mechanics. (3) suggested changes should (ideally) be unimpacted by announced future changes.
I'll go first, let me know what you think. Let me know if are curious about why I think a given change would be worthwhile.

  1. Add ammo boxes for (nearly) every ammo type. All ammo boxes should be in quanities of at least 30. Locked rooms should have a higher chance for mid to high pen ammo boxes.
  2. Flare gun as a special slot – Somewhat difficult to acquire, extremely specialized use. Player should retain gun upon death.
  3. All class IV armor should be purchasable on flea.
  4. All skills should level at a similar rate to strength and endurance
  5. Pistol caliber ammunition should stack in quantities larger than rifle caliber counterparts. Perhaps 90 to 100 stack.
  6. Ammo Crafts times should be more proportional how quickly a given ammo would be consumed in a raid. If 1 successful raid takes about 30 minutes and consumes 120 AR OR 180 SMG OR 60 DMR rounds, then a 4 hour craft should produce 8 raids worth of ammo.
  7. Jaeger should sell a PM pistol, PM pistol mags, 9x18mm P bullets, scav vest, and a very small backpack for 1 rouble so brand new players can always have a kit going into a raid without waiting for their scav timer.
  8. Dog tags should sell for 1000 roubles per level. A level 20 dog tag would sell for 20,000 roubles. PMC kills should award an additional 50 exp per PMC level. A level 30 PMC kill would award 1600exp (100 + (30x50)).
  9. Traders should reset on a weekly basis. Their stock amounts and buy limits should increase proportionately to how often traders reset within a weekly. For example if a trader would normally reset 100 times in a week their corresponding stock amount and buy limit would increase by 100x.
  10. Maps should be equipable in the special slot. Quest markers should appear on the map if applicable because new players shouldn't be forced to use a wiki understand quests.

2023.06.01 00:20 simpslayer1994 A/C car problems

Any experienced guys out there that can give me some information on my car? I have a 2011 Toyota Camry hybrid and the compressor doesn’t seem to want to cycle on and stay on. The front fan will run for exactly 5 seconds before you hear the compressor click and start to fire up but then immediately dies back down. I’ve located the leak and replaced the compressor with a new one. I vacuumed down the system for 2 hours to -30hg and fill it correctly to 1.29lbs of refrigerant R134 as stated on the vehicle tag. I also replaced the low and high pressure switches on the unit. Still giving me a lot of short cycles. Anyone have any idea out there or that can help?

2023.06.01 00:19 Whole-Award2092 Solicitor upfront fee ...

So we have accepted an offer on our property but the sellers have not yet (well, they will in the next week) even listed their place as for sale yet. We've approached a highly rated solicitor near us to represent us and they've come back to us with "Yes, that's no problem. We will wait for the Heads of Terms but we will require a fee of £750 to open your account with us for dispositions"
... Now, I'm not that educated in the property market, but that seems like a lot so soon. We are worried that if the buyer pulls out, what happens to the money? Can we get it back?
I'm sorry if this sounds totally reasonable, we are just new to this.

2023.06.01 00:19 Twayneeded Oct 2021

I worked with ychild to get her to clean her room. i did not help her but tried to tell her step by step on cleaning. ochild found out and started cleaning his room. He did well but missed something small. I asked him to finish this one section and he flipped out. I did not yell at him but did start to become heated because he was throwing a fit like a toddler. spouse came bursting into the room yelling at me for yelling at ochild.I think ochild knows he just can just yell and stomp to get spouse's attention and I will get in trouble and he will get to do whatever he wants. This is when I finally made up my mind that the only option is divorce. I cannot think that this marriage is fixable now. I did the dishes, cooked supper, cleaned the living room, swept, and vacuumed. spouse asked me when was the last time I cleaned the toilets. spouse slept with the kids.
spouse spent all day in her room working on her school work. I got the dash cams working in both of our vehicles. Worked with the dogl while walking with her harness. I put up all the laundry except for her shirts because there is no room in our closet and we are out of hangers. I picked up all the torn up trash and dog poop in the backyard. Did a water change in the aquarium. ychild has torn up her room that she cleaned the other day. I spent about an hour outside playing with ychild and ochild. I managed to get the kids in bed around 10-10:30pm. spouse announced that she was taking a bath. At the end of the bath I went in. She started talking about how after everyone went to bed she was going to stay up in the livingroom to work on school. She then told me i came in there for a reason and to tell her what was going on. So I asked if I could go down on her that night. She got angry and told me "does not need to be taken care of." I closed the door and left but I could hear her still going off on me. I feel deflated and unloved again. I don't know why I keep trying to bring the spark back in the marriage. spouse slept in our bed last night and ychild joined us. Today I cooked a breakfast supper and made pizza for lunch. I woke up at 3:30 am and couldn't get back to sleep.
I started this journal and decided to try and write about the previous 2 weeks events. My goal is now to record the things I do in the house, my interactions with spouse and the kids, where spouse sleeps, and anything noteworthy on a daily basis. This morning I tried to talk to spouse (she sighed and looked annoyed when I started talking) about an interaction I had with ychild on our way to get breakfast this morning. ychild decided to talk in a way that makes it sound like she is cussing even when she isnt. I told her what I told ychild and spouse snapped at me when I tried to get into the details. If I know I am going to talk to spouse about something non-spontaneous I'm going to try and start recording the interactions. I cooked supper. spouse slept in our bed last night, ychild joined us after waking up.
Today we went to the state fair. It started out as usual when we go on the trip. late start, blaming, getting mad, yelling, her being upset. After getting to the fair the day went well. We didn't argue very much and the day was actually nice but long. Wife had a school meeting at 5. Went out to eat for supper then ice cream with the kids. As usual fight started when the kids only wanted to sit with Wife. Get home kids bathed and put in bed. Wife bought a special deodorant to help with smells in the breast/pubic area (something she is self conscious about) I helped apply it and try and kiss her breasts. She turns away and says she is cold. Helped wife put together kids lunch and backpacks for the next morning. Take the trash out. I shower and notice my wife isn't in bed when I get out so I assumed she was sleeping with the kids. She was sitting in the living room in the dark with her phone on facebook. Wife said she was going to bed but didn't want to "do anything." I go to bed also so I can spend some time with her. Once again I try and cuddle with her. I roll next to her and place my hand on her leg. I don't move it because it tickles or annoys her. After 5 min without her trying to cuddle and with her face buried in facebook I roll over. She can tell I was upset and said that she didn't try and cuddle cause my arm was pinning her down. This isn't true it was only on her leg and i wasn't applying any pressure. YChild ended up in our bed during the night.
Went to work today. no goodmorning or goodbye kiss. Worked all day, picked up the kids, brought them home and emptied their backpacks. Wife got home about 10min later. No hey how was your day. no hello kiss. Nothing. She disappeared into the bedroom again. Worked with Ychild on her letters because she isn't doing well in school. had a breakfast supper. Took the dogs for a walk. made OChild lunch. She complained because I had not yet done the dishes. Waited till the last minute to get their backpacks/clothes together for the morning. Complained because things were missing. feels like I never hear anything positive only ever complaints. Went to bed and wife finally makes it in. I don't really attempt to cuddle just put my arm on her leg and accidentally scratched. Thought I had made her mad so I pulled my hand back. A few minutes later and she rolled over and spooned with me (little spoon.) Its been years since this happened. Is she doing that because of my persistence and she is trying to make me happy? or is it because of a positive change. Only time will tell (success.)
Woke up and wife wasn't in the bed. I don't know if she woke up early or went to lay down with the kids in the night. She was in a mood when i got up. Complained because I hadn't put up the kids school laundry when it came out of the dryer so the clothes are now wrinkly. I let myself relax last night and did not do as many chores. I need to work on that and try and stay busy. ran into trouble picking the kids up from school. Their school fund raisers were supposed to come out with the kids. Ochild did not bring them out because he didn't listen to instructions from his teacher. Wife had to swing by and pick them up because I was already on the way home and the line was seriously backed up. Got home did the dishes, cooked supper, folded the laundry and put a load of laundry in, and gathered and took the trash out. Wife spent the evening once again in our bedroom but this time it was working on activities to help our daughter learn better for school. She did have a school meeting at 7 pm. I thought the kids would shower on the next day so I did not tell them to bath, but was overruled agrily by wife and gave my daughter a shower because her hair was dirty. Kids got to bed 1 hour late because wife kept overruling me on telling them to go lay down. After kids went to bed I got on my computer to play games. I put too large a load in the dryer and it took a long time to dry so I was not able to put it up before bed time. Wife went into the kitchen to make the kids lunches. I asked if I could do anything to help and she said no. I layed down in bed a little later than I was planning. Wife was very angry when she opened the dryer because I hadn't taken the clothes out and folded them, I had washed our large pile of clothes instead of the kids 1 day of clothes, when I folded the laundry I didn't put the towels in the bathroom because i did not want to interrupt her meeting so she yelled at me because the towels were not in the bathroom when she went to take a shower. I was berated very badly and once again felt unappreciated, emasculated, and unloved (hated maybe.) She said that I was doing more around the house only because I felt our marriage was failing (in a sarcastic tone of voice) and I wanted to be praised. I am doing it because it helps with my depression and honestly I am trying to get into the habit for when I inevitably divorce her. I turned off my emotions and went to sleep. No kiss goodnight and even saying goodnight.
Woke up at 3:30 am alone in bed. I assume the wife slept with the kids. I couldn't go back to sleep so I laid in bed. Closer to the alarm time of 4:30ish I got ready for work. When my wife came in I had to say good morning,she wasn't even going to talk to me. I had to initiate the conversation. I left 5 min early because I didn't want to be around her. I had to kiss/tell her goodbye which is usual. I'm not sure the last time the morning routine was initiated by her. several times in our marriage I have experimented with how long we would go without a kiss or an I love you that wasn’t initiated by me. Usually its several weeks and I almost feel like seeing how long it would take this time. Got home with the kids and stopped for our weekly
treat. Wife did not spend as much time in the bedroom as usual. I was tired so I did not feel like doing any cleaning. I cooked supper and we watched a show during supper. Afterwards she joined me and the kids in walking the dogs. We got back and watched a few more shows and then I helped her with lunches and getting the kids things together. Anytime something didn't go perfect she always had little comments and blamed me (like when she couldn't find Ychilds clothes or if a tape was missing.) all in all, the day wasn't bad and wasn't good either. I went to bed a little early and she decided to stay up and watch one of her own movies. I did not kiss her or say I love you. She did not say anything about it.
Woke up at a normal time. Wife and Ychild were in bed with me. The morning went ok and Ychild was very chipper and loving. Got home from work with the kids and went out picked up groceries and ate out. we stopped at some yard sales and had a decent fun time with minimal arguing. Got home and put up the groceries. wife's parents were coming over the next day and "we" cleaned the house. I did the dishes, cleaned the counters, vacuumed and shampooed the carpets, picked up the living room, cleaned off the fireplace, put up the clothes in the living room. It was 10:30 I kept telling the kids to go to bed and Wife kept overriding me. Telling me its the weekend and the kids should be able to stay up. I think 10:30 is too late for an 8 and 5 year old to stay up. I told wife I was tired and was going to bed. She complained that she was going to have to stay up and clean the house by herself. She said i didn't do enough. The only thing she could come up with when i asked her what i didn't do was keep the entertainment center clean and organized. Apparently i'm fine living in an empty house. Funny when she was a stay at home mom after she got laid off and then during the pandemic, the house was never cleaned. She stayed home all day everyday and never cleaned nor cooked supper or did the dishes. I feel like I am bending over backwards not only am I not receiving credit for what I have done. I am actually getting complaints for not doing enough. She eventually went to bed with the kids while I slept in my bed alone again. Not that I wanted her company after making me feel like that.
Got up around 7:00. I finished cleaning the carpets in the living room, cleaned the trash from the carpets, and swept the bathroom. We went looking at garage sales. Parents got there a little late in the day and spent more time with her sister than they did with us which is usually. I tried to get the kids to go to bed at a decent hour but was once again overruled by my Wife. She said the kids are on a school break and should be able to stay up later. I agreed but didnt think staying up till 11:30 at night should be the answer. They should be in bed at 9:30 and asleep at 10:00. Needless to say Wife slept with the kids.
Today we spent a great deal of the day traveling and going to yard and estate sales. It was a decent day with minimal arguing except for right before supper trying to get the kids to not cry when we wont buy them everything they want. Wife said I am fuel to the fire for the kids. It upset me that she constantly bad mouths my parenting style. Apparently not putting up with children throwing fits and actually punishing them instead of just letting everything play out without saying anything is a bad day. A thunderstorm came late in the evening and none of us went to bed before it passed. Wife slept with the kids again.
We all woke up early and took wife to work. When we got back I let the kids play and be kids. We did work on Ychilds worksheets for school. Ochild had a dr apt then we went to pick up wife. Got home and cooked supper and did the dishes. I also vacuumed the livingroom. spouse spent the entire evening in the bedroom working on schoolwork. Wife slept with the kids again.
Woke up with Ychild in my bed and wife at work. Had a good day with the kids. Ychild lost one of her (only pairs) of shoes. They played all day in the living room having a good time. Had leftovers for supper. Wife spent all evening in the bedroom working on schoolwork. Wife slept with the kids again. I was feeling very alone again. Just reminded me how we don't have much of a marriage.
Woke up early alone in bed. Had a good day with the kids. Helped them build a big fort in the living room. I did some woodworking today and got the pole saw from our neighbor. Walked the dogs before supper. Supper didn't turn out well, the pork chops were freezer burnt so we got taco casa. Wife spent the evening in the bedroom working on schoolwork. Another thunderstorm rolled in around bedtime. Wife slept with the kids again. That's 6 days straight sleeping in my bed alone.
Woke up at 3:30am got up but went back to bed and eventually sleep around 4:30-5:00. Woke up with Ychild in bed. I took the kids to several stores today and changed the water in the aquarium . Wife got back home and let the kids play. Once my wife got home I cooked supper and washed the dishes while she disappeared into the bedroom. Went back there and she was just laying in bed saying she was tired while watching tv. I convinced her to come and eat supper with the family at the table. Afterwards she went back to the bedroom for more bed and tv. She would rather spend time laying in bed and watching tv than spend a little time with me. I have been all alone with 2 kids all day (actually for the last 4 days.) Ochild convinced her to come out of the bedroom to show her something on his tv. I don't know what to do and no longer feel connected to my wife, I feel like I am all alone. Wife came out and before laying down with the kids mentioned I havent kissed her goodnight in a few days and to come kiss her. It was just a smooch but at least she took notice. I told her it feels like she wanted me to do that lately.She told me she was just stressed and tired from school work. She slept with the kids again tonight.
Woke up with Ychild in bed with me. Got the kids up and fed them breakfast. Wife got home early and we went to an estate sale. I made hotdogs for supper. Kids went to bed late. Wife complained about them not being asleep. I told her what she said about them being on a school break and me getting in trouble with her earlier for putting them to bed before 10:00 pm. It didn't matter, it was still my fault and still upset. Wife slept with the kids again.
Wife got up earlier than me. We left the house around 9 to go look at some neighborhood garage sales. had a decent day in the car with minimal fussing. Got home a little later than planned. Had Ychild start cleaning her messy room. Wife started complaining about the messy house again saying she is the only one who cleans. Apparently I am not doing a good enough job. What a surprise. did some laundry today. got the kids to bed around 9:30. They were constantly out of bed until 11:00pm with different things. I was getting upset with them and my wife strolled in and took over as usual as soon as the kids started crying. She actually came to bed with me tonight. I tried to cuddle with her but as usual she huffed as soon as I put my arm around her. She said she doesn't mind me cuddling, she just doesnt like it when I move my hand. She made no effort to return the love. I am glad for these interactions because it reminds me that I am not loved and why I want a divorce.
Woke up around 6:00 am with a stomach ache and bloated. Down to 238 lbs. Wife spent the day in the bedroom working on school. I did some laundry, trimmed the trees in the yard, and put out bulk pickup items. Cooked chicken fajitas for supper. Wife came down sick with something and went to bed early. Kids were asleep by 9:00. Wife was asleep by the time I came to bed.
Went to work. Not a bad day there. Got home and cooked supper, took the dogs for a walk. Tried to put the kids to bed at 8:00 Ychild started crying and got wife to agree to let her sleep in our bed tonight. All they have to do is turn on the water works. The wife doesn't want to hear them cry so she caves. Ychild slept with me and wife.
Went to work. Picked up the kids and went home. Cooked hotdogs for supper. Put up some laundry. Wife cut the Ochild and my hair. Didn't go for walk today. Got kids to bed on time. Wife slept with the kids.
Worked from home today. Picked the kids up for a half day. Stopped at chick-fil-a for lunch. Went to the fish store with the kids. Met Wife for the Ychild's parent teacher conference. Cooked chicken fajita nachos for lunch. Gathered trash, did laundry, and did the dishes. Cut out the pumpkin with the kids. Wife and I watched Netflix until bed. We lay down and I decided to try cuddling again. I rolled over to her and she actually reciprocated. She put her leg around mine and held my hand. It felt really nice.
Went to work. It was an uneventful morning and work. Picked up the kids and called my wife to meet us at DQ for a treat. We got home and my wife wasn't feeling well. She didn't eat supper. Me and my kids took the dogs for a walk while my wife stayed behind and took a bath. We watched netflix until bed again. Got the kids in bed on time. When the kids threw a fit when they wanted Wife to cover them up she said something in a low voice and refused to tell me what she said. I kept asking her and she finally told me "it's probably why you resent me." I didn't say anything because it was partially true. I do resent her because the kids prefer her, but they only prefer her because she constantly gives in their fits and I do not. So I keep being the bad guy and she get to be the fun yes mom. Later we started working on the kids' lunches. I got a bottled drink off the table and started to open it.She asked if it was old and I said i don't think so. She started to complain at me because she didn't want to give the kids an old drink. I started to explain why I didn't think it was old (the cap still had seals on most of the cap.) She told me I was talking too loud (I wasn't, I was talking in a normal voice.) She told me she didn't need me anymore so I left and went to bed. We went to bed angry with
each other.
Woke up still angry at her because it was such a little issue to get mad about. Things like this happen all the time. Little things that don't matter in the long run end up being blown up beyond what it should have. had a decent day at work then went and got the kids. ate at the olive garden. Ochild asked if he could have her phone. I explained to him that he could only have his tablet, not her phone or tablet. He got upset and wife immediately caved and gave him her phone. I explained to my wife that we agreed 2 weeks ago and they haven't had either this entire time. their behavior is much better but she said she isn't feeling well and just didn't want to hear it. i got home and unloaded the groceries. My wife started complaining about me unloading the groceries wrong. Apparently I'm supposed to put them on the table starting at the far end then work down the table from there. Like it makes a difference if you take an extra step either way the entire table is filled up and it doesn't matter which end you start on. Then my wife complained that I hadn't cleaned up the blood drops from the dog yet. I literally was only home for 2 minutes before she got home then we left but it's supposed to be my job to get it done with no time to spare. I cleaned it up and she started complaining that I cleaned it wrong. I used a baby wipe when I should have used clorox wipes. There is litteral pee on the floor and she is worried that the blood wasn't sanitized. Makes no sense. This all happened within 20 minutes. Needless to say she slept with the kids again.
Woke up for overtime on a saturday. i worked 7 hours on a boat on the lake. Come home and the wife is sitting on the couch watching tv and the kids are right next to her zoned out with electronics. she didn't do anything all day and has been binge watching netflix. she said
She wanted to go to a local festival today. I fixed myself a pbj for lunch then did the dishes. We went next door to help the neighbors put on their pool cover. After that we went to watch a country band perform at a local festival. We were there for 2 hours and she seemed
upset with me because she knows i do not like crowds and i told her i was there because it's what she wanted to do. that's supposed to be my job to do things i don't like to support her but I guess i am actually supposed to like it to avoid offending her. The kids were
horrible and kept fighting over her phone. It seems like im never gonna get her to put her foot down. Came back home and watched the last episode of season one of our favorite shows. Kids stayed up late and the wife slept with the kids.
Had a decent night's sleep. The kids were screaming when I woke up. Kids had a full day of playing. I took Ochild with me when I went to the store and I bought him lunch. We get home and I throw the kids' laundry into the washer. Wife and the kids made a pumpkin into a puppy for
Ochild's book report. I take Ychild to the store to get her own pumpkin. Kids are playing a game with a hula-hoop like mirror-mirror. My son asks the mirror who is the laziest and he puts it up to me. It really hurt my feelings. Wife talked to him and told him all the things I do (dishes, cooking supper, laundry, sweep/mop, vacuuming, gardening, mowing.) She listed all these things. I talked to her about it later and she said "well" like she really thinks I am lazy. She just listed off all the things I do and she talks to me like I am lazy. Ychild threw a fit at bedtime because her required stuffed animal is dirty from the dog. I begin telling her that she needs to take care of it and this wouldn't happen. Wife gets onto me about trying to teach her life lessons. Wife allows ychild to sleep in our bed with us. I don't think any of my lessons will ever stick when wife is there to overrule me and go softer on the kids. At least I didn't sleep alone tonight.
Woke up and went to work. Uneventful day at work. Get the gets and bring them home. I put up the laundry and started a new load. Picked up the living room and then cooked supper (smothered pork chops.) Afterward we walked the dogs (wife got home and was tired so she changed into pajamas) ychild was upset and wants her mommy to walk with us so she got peeved but changed into street clothes and we walked together as a family. We get back and sit on the couch for the next 3 hours watching netflix. Put the kids to bed then finish our netflix binge. After I volunteered to help fix the kids' lunch for the next day. She praised me for the speed that I made their lunch. Unfortunately ychild had spilled something in her lunchbox and I cleaned it. It got wet when I cleaned and my wife flipped out and got in a bad mood. the next 20 min was kicking me out of the kitchen, complained because i forgot to bring ychild's sweater in from the car, upset because i did not put the laundry into the dryer. I went to bed alone.
Woke up with my wife and ychild in bed with me. I started getting ready and my wife started complaining to ychild that she will have to go dig through the laundry basket to get socks because they never get put up. I spent all my time between getting home and cooking supper and putting up laundry. The both of us sat on our butts and watched netflix for hours the previous evening. we could have done those together but we didn't. Instead it's my fault because I didn't do it. Its tiring bending over backwards, feeling like you are doing the brunt of the housework, the only one working, the only one cooking and feeling unappreciated and getting bitched at for minor things. especially the 1st thing in the morning to our ychild within earshot of me. She is very passive aggressive and saying these things to my kids undermines my authority and prevents me from being an effective parent. Its things like this that leads me to believe that's why my son thinks I am lazy. I wonder what she has said to him so that I didn't overhear. I got the kids from school and brought them home. I immediately put up the clothes that had been folded but not put up. I cleaned the fish tank of dead fish and snails. I cooked supper (hamburgers), i wasn't feeling well so we didn't go for a walk, I got an old laptop together for Ochild to use. Wife and I watched TV for about an hour and got on my computer. Went to bed alone.
Wife and I had an argument at the end of the night. Went to bed upset.
Woke up with my wife and ychild in bed. Didn't say goodbye to my wife when I left. I had a decent day at work. Picked up the kids and brought them home. We didn't walk the dogs today. Wife had to stay late at school. Wife went to bed early with the kids.
Woke up in bed alone. Left again without saying goodbye to my wife. She was upset but I guess doesnt realize that our marriage is in trouble or just doesn't care and wants to maintain an illusion. Didn't have to pick up the kids from school today. We went out to eat for supper. Wife slept with the kids again. came home and mowed the lawn. We ended up eating out at Tuscan Slice. came home and the wife slept with the kids.
Woke up alone. Worked 10 hours of overtime. got home and immediately left to go do some halloween stuff at the big church. had a decent time with little arguing. Afterwards I ate at CFLA. Daughter got upset because she wanted to switch seats and I said no. I am tired of giving in
to the kids' every demand. When she started throwing a fit and told her she was about to get a spanking. Wife got upset because I will actually spank them and she thinks it doesn't do any good. The kids only really seem to do this when they know mommy is around cause when it's just me they behave. They know they can always get mommy on their side and turn her against daddy just by crying. The wife stayed in the bedroom working on schoolwork after we got back. The kids stayed up really late (11:30). went to bed alone.
Woke up alone a little later. Wife and ychild had slept with me. We ended up staying home most of the day. Wife stayed in the bedroom working on schoolwork. I played with the kids, swept, vacuumed, did the laundry, cleaned the living room, and cleaned the aquarium. We went to a local church event for trunk or treat and then we took the kids trick or treating down downtown. It was a decent night. We got home and the kids went to bed a little late.

2023.06.01 00:18 feliciasnh Park and ride type place to leave your own personal car for the day, near Tangerine/I10

Does anyone know of any official places where you can leave your car for the day? I'll be carpooling with people coming from the mid-town area, I live in northern OV, so they'd like to just pick me up on their way north to PHX.
I'm looking for something safe for my car (which isn't a fancy car at all, but still, I value it), and somewhere that maybe you or someone you know has actually parked youtheir own car, not just suggestions like "Try at the back of the QT" or "it's probably safe at that dirt lot near I10". :)
Thank you!

2023.06.01 00:18 Trillbotanist Basic questions for first time applying minute pirate bugs

I had my first set of infections a few weeks ago- leaf symptoms point to thrips and I also saw lots of direct evidence on the underside of leaves. I tried insectosidal soap but they came back about a week or two later so I bought a 200 pack of orius minute pirate bugs and a couple satchels of cucumeris. I thought it would be easy and obvious what to do. I basically dumped most of the container out in, on, and around the three plants I have, but hardly any stayed on an actual plant and now I feel like I did everything wrong.
My question is how do you get the minute pirate bugs onto plants- in a hydro setup?
It seems like they like soil for the one plant I have in soil, but I have two others in hydro and the bugs are just sort of hanging out in the food and soil/pebbles they came in. I've been trying to scoop individuals and place them onto leaves but it started feeling pointless after a while since they hop off half the time and when I checked back on leaves the pirate bugs were gone. There are probably around 50 crawling around on the tent floor but I don't see how they could make it up to a plant on their own, especially since I assume with the air pump noises the walls of my DWC reservoir are not exactly an inviting thing to go climb up compared to a plant stalk. I would try to put them all at the base of a plant but I only have tin foil as the topper for my DWC and that also seems pretty uninviting/confusing for the pirate bugs compared to soil.
Can you cultivate your own pirate bugs to keep a population for future uses?
Shipping was steep so I'd prefer to keep them alive for as long as possible and have a backup population ready for future thrips infestations- I read Orius eat pollen as supplemental so I was hoping to just keep them in a traveler insect container with a little tub of pollen and cup of water to make a little orius colony for future infestations. IDK what else they would need or if they're too picky to thrive in such a basic setup or if somebody here knows better.
For cucumeris I just hung the satchel up near the plants but away from the light since that seems to make sense but I am way more worried about the orius since they were quite a bit more expensive and cucumeris is much easier to find for me...
