2023.05.28 19:20 Enough_Exchange_3417 I think I’m in a toxic relationship and I don’t know what to do
Ok so I (15f) and my boyfriend (15m) have been dating for 5 months. we were best friends for a long time before that and we were extremely close. I felt pressured into the relationship since i put him in the friend zone for a really long time and even though I was developing some serious feelings for him, i wasn’t ready. I cheated on him at the start of our relationship, it was an awful and unforgivable thing to do, and i don’t know why he stayed with me but he has. ever since then I’ve improved myself and became the best girlfriend i can possibly be for him. nothing can make up for what I did, but I am extremely affectionate to him every day. both physically and verbally, i make time for him,I listen to him, i check up on him, I laugh and talk and cuddle and express my love and attraction to him numerous times a day. basically anything i can do. i have never raised my voice on him or called him any names or criticized him. i tell him to prioritize himself and his mental health and encourage him to develop his hobbies and spend time with his friends outside of me. and he really is an amazing boyfriend to me, he’s always been the very best and affectionate and loving. but lately he’s been verbally abusive, and he’s started to punch walls on call when he’s mad. he’s never done anything like that before, and he seems like a completely different person. it scared me really bad when it happened. he also started saying he’s going to kill himself and it’s all my fault, and that he hears voices telling him to do it and that he hopes he gets into a car crash. this has all been incredibly scary for me and there have been several nights where i had to talk him out of it and soothe him. we still laugh and have amazing times together but sometimes it feels perfect and other times it’s awful. he used to genuinely love me and he says he still does but if i cry he just hangs up on me and i feel like the guilt is gnawing on me from the inside. i feel like even if he started to use me or physically abuse me i would still stay. I started having really bad panic attacks whenever he doesn’t respond to me because i’m scared he’s hurting himself. there are some more things too. i know it’s all my fault and i deserve it but please give me some advice. thank you for reading

2023.05.28 19:03 NukelordPvP Crazy lady driving crashed the car
I was riding in the passenger seat with a girl named Jennie who I had JUST met to go with to McCall, Idaho for U of I ski team, she started screaming on a bridge where the timezone changes without context (for fun, like wtf) then on a sharp turn she doesn't complete the turn crashing into the rock wall (not head on, at an angle) at 40mph, luckily I braced myself and covered my face with my arms. Plus I drink 2 mochas a day of milk so my bones are made of steel. Sustained only minor bruises. Praise the skeleton god.

2023.05.28 18:53 Annual_Designer_9475 I hate the stalker campaign. And all the stalker mods all suck. This shoulda been easy to love.
So i just beat stalker lost alpha revisited and spent like 400 hours completing it all, it was incredible.
Now im on to new mods. But the story is all the same confusion.I dont think ive ever played a less clear singleplayer campaign in all of my gaming history.
When you go to aprogram institute and the dude is like "HELP WE UNDER ATTACK" (the one where you need to save mole).. It is just so profoundly unclear on what you need to do. The developers think its a good idea to send a 2nd nearly-impossible-to-beat military wave and helicopters to kill mole and break the game apparently. This part just seems so wrong to me. MOLE IS AN IMPORTANT NPC WITH QUESTS AND WHATNOT. Yet they just march him to his death into a death helicopter?? WHAT THE EFFING FK AM I SUPPOSED TO DO HERE.
And OGSR makes it even more confusing by blocking off the ladder to the underground (the one mole brings you to).. AND THEY EVEN BLOCK THE STAIRS GOING DOWN nearby.. So i guess i have to trudge back through the wave of military reinforcements??
Its almost like the developers took the game out of its package at the last minute before mailing it off, and deleted 50% of the games quest waypoints before they shipped the game, just so it would be more confusing.. AND not one single mod tries to adress any of this trash? Have you ever considered telling the player where they need to go? I dont think ive ever used google more in a single video game. The people who made this game expect the player to be psychic or something. Not one single quest unfolds in a logical manner.
Stalker is such an incredible atmosphere, but i honestly hate anything related to the developers trying to do something. Its always so unclear and just wrong feeling. The whole campaign just feels like you are doing something incorrect from start to finish. Sidorovich at one point even says "you dont have to come all the way back here, bring it straight to barkeep" and you are like OK COOL SO THIS GAME IS LOGICAL. Then the second you spy on a mob in garbage the game says RETURN TO SIDOROVICH.. So its like wtf? This game is a hot mess.
The game is like an amazing sandbox with vehicles and beauty. Hampered by artificial shallow systems like radiation, anomalies, bad scripts, bad missions, invisible walls, blocked passageways. It feels like old cheap game stuff is holding back a newer-feeling-game. Just so much Artificial suffering. Not even bethesda quests are this interfuckulated
and the mods just make it worse! They try and pretend its a realistic game! You cant just remove 90% of the players health from the vanilla game and say "realistic" When you figure out a way to make AI stop stop being able to shoot through bushes, and yaknow...MISS SHOTS EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE. Then and only then do you have permission to make the player die in 2 shots
I hate AAA games, i despise call of duty, but theres a reason millions of people play cod and only hundreds of people play stalker. There needs to be a balanced middle ground. Having 700 save games in a single playthrough on the easiest difficulty is not a good video game.
Are there any mods that just use the stalker environments, weapons, sounds, and literally nothing else? Like a true sandbox with no scripts.
And i got to find a way to disable anomalies, if there was an RPG-esque solution for them i would probably enjoy them. We need to be able to disable them somehow. Seeing your car explode in the middle of a street just makes you want to uninstall the game.
A good game would say "follow the road to stay safe from anomalies".. But this troll does the opposite and puts anomalies right in the center of all the roads
im just frustrated at how close this is to being a good game. The gameworld is superior to dayz chernaurus. But the horrible scripts and missions and CLUNK make me think dayz is the better game currently
Anomalies and radiation is fkn nerdy and shallow and fake, the only place there should be radiation in the game is in those towering metal garbage piles and NOWHERE else. Stop being annoying just for the sake of being annoying
I dont even know who or what im lashing out at honestly, i just want this game to be better, its minimized right now and im going to return to playing it
**extreme imagination just want to try**
for FIVE MINUTES I just want to try a stalker sandbox with no anomalies, no radiation, cars EVERYWHERE, clear roads, no military checkpoints, no stamina. So then i could focus on having fun like piling up 100 crates and crashing into them at 100mph with my car. Or spawning 100 dogs and trying to run them all over. Has anyone ever had fun in stalker before? or is it just supposed to be arduous nerd suffering forever and always?
You guys would hate that i imagine, you guys like Just walking and coughing and stuff.

2023.05.28 18:52 jaboiii88 Random crime overhaul I’d like to see
One day in the future I’d like to see them revamp how random crimes work in the open world.
I get Spider-Man listens to the police scanner and rushes out to calls, but crime itself could make more sense. Certain calls — fire alarms, car crashes/chases, in-progress break-ins, fights — do feel based in reality. Huge drug and weapons deals in broad daylight in alleys(or rooftops), not so much.
It’d be great to see a mechanic make use of your spider-sense as a proactive crime fighting tool.
Imagine: you are patrolling a neighborhood in Manhattan or an outlying borough you know is a high crime area (you have access to call logs and a blob on the map could be shaded light red).
Suddenly, you’re spider sense starts going off. Why? Nothing seems too out of the ordinary.
The game guides you into looking around for clues. You hone in on someone, and it starts going crazy. After observing for a bit you realize why. Maybe this guy has a gun. Maybe he’s running drugs for a corner crew. Maybe if you follow him a bit he’ll lead you to something bigger.
Whatever it is, you feel like you’re looking after the neighborhood. You’re not humping calls like a burned out cop in a radio car. You’re being proactive. You’re being Spider-Man.

2023.05.28 18:47 WarWolf88 I thought I finally Reached Happiness but…..
Iam (M30) and have been struggling with suicidal thoughts for the last 10 years, I attempted it 2 times before but stopped around 3 years ago because I supported my parents and siblings financially. I have been working abroad for the last 5 years, I worked myself into oblivion just to keep myself distracted from my inner demons, last month I was happy for the first time in forever, I bought a car and was booking for my parents to come visit but life had other plans for me, in a span of a week I crashed my car, my employer shut down his business and civil war broke in my home country. Whoever is reading till this far Iam really sorry I talked a lot. Right now we are trying to smuggle my parents out of the active war zone while I sit there not able to contribute at all, plus car payments are pending on me, it’s just I feel useless like a waste of space. Iam sick of crying day and night. Iam terrified of what I might end up doing to myself

2023.05.28 18:44 InsideVisit1653 Death in mortal sin
There have been several controversies on the sister subreddit so I figured we'd love to hear from you.
Say a person died suddenly in a car crash being in a mortal sin, but they would've confessed later. They didn't get the chance to though, does it mean they can't reach Heaven?
I really like to believe that God's mercy would obviously prevail here, and at least, the person can go to purgatory, but many ppl on Catholicism

2023.05.28 18:16 Ok_Web2480 I messed up by confessing to my crush
I messed up by confessing to my crush, for privacy let's call her Sarah, Sarah(f20) was one of my best friends,
We were both nerds who loved fantasy, star Wars, LOTR and so on, we would often hang out at a maker space, a place where we can make any kind of things out of anything, we are both artistically inclined, we loved making clothes and cosplay gear.
Almost two years ago i realized I had developed feelings for her, but being the eternal nervous person i was i just kept it to myself, i told myself being her friend was enough and that i would only ruin what we had by confessing to her, besides she already had a SO so i kept silent
We would often send snaps to each other and spam one another throughout the day every day, she would rant on and on about books she had read and completely nerd out over characters and she would tell me all about the books she is writing, some of them even had characters that were inspired by me, of course i was flattered, never had someone implemented me in a book before, her passion was something else entirely, she was always so happy and was always so positive
One day her she told me she had to put her dog down soon, she was devastated obviously and cried and confided in me that her SO was emotionally distant and unavailable, how she hated that she was always there for her SO, but they were never there for her, i tried to support her anyway i could, i admit i was never the best at consoling people, then a little while after that they broke up, i really tried my best to be there for her, but i really suck at being emotionally supportive
Come new year this year after they had been broken up for some time i decided to build up courage, i was expecting to be told that she didn't feel the same way, that she doesn't see me that way, and i thought i could take it because having loved her for almost a year without saying anything had crushed me, so i naively thought i could bear the rejection, so i confessed, i told her i had a crush on her and as expected she didn't feel the same way, but what came after almost killed me
I respected her and i didn't bring it up any further, we talked about it and we agreed it didn't have to be weird, and so life moved forward, but i noticed her snaps became fewer and fewer, i asked her about it, she said she had been really busy and that she didn't have much time as of late, of course i believed her (and still do) but a part of me couldn't help but think it was because of what I had said, days turned to weeks and weeks to a month, we stopped talking and i realized how alone i truly was, i barely had any human contact with anyone at all, the loneliness became even more all encompassing when another friend of mine who i had known for years committed suicide, i was in a dark place made out of loneliness and hurt, at this point I had no one to talk to, no one to love or open up to, i decided to delete all my social media, and cut contact with everyone, the only way for someone to contact me was trough sms, and i got nothing but promos for a couple of weeks
I was in a very dark place and it caught up to me, i tried to commit suicide by crashing my car, in the winter, i survived (obviously) and was able to lie and tell the ems that i lost control of it in a turn, they believed me and i was discharged rather quickly because i had only minor scrapes and bruises, but i decided that i would try and get help, i contacted my doctor who i confided in that i had planned and tried to commit suicide, she refered me to a psychologist, for the first time in what seemed an eternity i was able to let it all out, i don't remember how many times I cried after our sessions, but it was good to let it out, i was prescribed antidepressants and we worked on a plan to help me get trough this, now I'm no longer on antidepressants and I've made new friends, i still don't have any social media and have subsequently lost contact with a lot of people, but i don't feel alone anymore, it still gets rough every now and then, but i manage to give myself some slack and get trough it
I still think about Sarah and i still can't stop loving her, but i tell myself it's all part of the healing process, i have no contact with her anymore and i don't think i could ever contact her again after dissapearing out of her life like that, but I've accepted she won't be a part of my life anymore and i am ok with that, I've got new friends, new job and a plan for my future so all in all i am happy

2023.05.28 18:08 aspen1135 What happens to the futures markets if USDT fails?
I have spent a year building a personal botting platform that interfaces with the kucoin futures markets. I really like this exchange currently, as it is one of the only market places that allows me to long/short at the same time for a delta neutral approach and it's API is pretty well maintained. My strategy is fairly sound and profitable, but it's not entirely risk free and feel the need to ask the important questions to understand some of the existing potential (and serious) risks:
- Exchange solvency crisis or
- a serious USDT (Tether) depegging event / bank run.
After everything we've seen in the crypto space it's not impossible for either of those events to occur. Kucoin has been transparent enough to release merkle proof trees to show funds are not being co-mingled which helps build trust, but this does not account for it's existing liabilities and debts it may also have on it's balance sheet. With so many meme coins and features on the exchange itself you have to question how many loans it's really taken out or given to other project executives and developers.
The real question comes down to then; what happens then if USDT depegs?
On the futures market everything (except a few) is mostly traded against USDT. That means in the event of a Tether collapse, if were to have any position opened long then those positions would increase in value in relation to Tether's. Short positions would then be put in a squeeze which would likely need extra margin added to prevent any liquidations.
How would kucoin handle this situation? Would kucoin close it's futures markets or suspend trading if USDT depegged or would it allow trading to continue as per usual if it did?
And what would happen to kucoin's liabilities and debts if a USDT depeg happened? For example: if the exchange lent out other assets in return for USDT, then it's balance sheet would be experiencing some serious unrealized losses. The exchange itself might be forced to make some big OTC trades to meet liquidity demands as traders scramble to exit positions and markets. This could lead to an solvency issue, especially if all depositors start pulling funds out of central exchanges. That could lead to a potential bankruptcy situation for kucoin. Even if it is highly regarded in the space for many years now and survived through the worst crashes in crypto history; these question still needs to be addressed.
I understand that this place is mostly a poster board for memes and maybe some small technical questions, but this is a serious question with big implications for those who are trading on this market. It would be nice if a reputable member could provide some insight to this potential crisis situation that might hypothetically have some probability of happening even if it is low.

2023.05.28 18:03 AlternativeShadows [WP] It's been a long friggen day. Someone crashed into your car while you were at work. You lost your last $20. And now you find yourself yelling at a startled looking super villain because "I've just about had it with this BS"
I was messing around with dialogue/script-type writing here. I rather like how the characters talk here. Here's the link
[Audio recording 46-ia] (10/22/34)
John Smith: What, I just talk into this? Is-- do I have to do this?
Agent Matthews: Yes, Mr. Smith. You do.
John Smith: Really? But I have to--I just--can I just go home?
Agent Matthews: Yes, you certainly can, Mr. Smith--
John Smith: Excellent, I'll just be--
Agent Matthews: After
you tell us what happened.
John Smith: Fine. Fine. Whatever.
Agent Matthews: Excellent. Now just go ahead and--
John Smith: I just wanted to go home. I had a long day at work. This stupid customer wouldn't leave me alone! She just kept on calling about some stupid--
[Agent Matthews clears his throat]
John Smith: Right, right, okay. So I was just walking down the street because my car broke down because some idiot
crashed into it while I was dealing with Karen
over there, and by the time I came out to see, they were gone! I tried calling--
[Agent Matthews clears his throat again]
John Smith: Fine!
Sorry! ...Anyways. Um. Oh, right. I was walking down Bouquet Avenue to try and find a phone--because I lost my wallet and couldnt use the payphone--so I could--
[Mr. Smith sees Agent Matthews shift in his seat]
John Smith: --And I ran into this super tall guy with a hoodie on. I was pretty pissed off at that point, so I started yelling at him for almost knocking me over, but then I see his eyes. And his eyes are bright red, like basically glowing. So I stop. Because at this point I know that it's Deadeye. I've seen him on the news, and I--well, I was still angry. Because of him I lost my last job, and he killed Gifted, who was my kid's favorite superhero. Do you know what it's like to explain to a kid that the guy who's supposed to be invincible is dead? I mean, I
was pretty scared when I heard that. And so I just kind of--I mean, I sort of just screamed at him. And he seemed terrified, for some bizarre reason. And I was so angry that I threw a punch at him. And it landed, and he just... crumpled.
Agent Matthews: Excuse me?
John Smith: I punched him. And he fell over.
Agent Matthews: What? That can't be--you
John Smith: No, sir. I punched him, and he went unconscious.
Agent Matthews: Mr. Smith, I need the truth. I can't let you go until--
John Smith: That was
the truth! And like I said, I just want to go home. Why would I lie?
Agent Matthews: But he's fought so many--he wouldn't just--you have to be lying!
John Smith: Well... there was something else...
Agent Matthews: What was it?
John Smith: I was really, really angry. And I wanted to go home. Can you guess how I feel right now?

2023.05.28 18:00 dfr1238 [(FP-POV Gorou)Fanfiction]38.2 C
I lifted the thermometer I had placed in her flushed left ear.
Looking at the reading on the thermometer, it showed "38.2 C".
Although a pregnant woman’s body temperature tends to be higher, this was definitely a fever, no doubt about it.
I slowly lowered my hand holding the thermometer, looking at Hoshino-San lying on the couch, I covered my face and recalled this morning.
The usual morning routine, I entered the bathroom for the usual grooming and looked at myself in the mirror.
After coming out, I noticed the mobile phone on the kitchen counter was buzzing with a notification, so I checked it.
I noticed that Hoshino-San had sent me two messages.
I opened the chatroom: "Amamiya-Sensei, I think I have a fever." she messaged—ugh. She sent a sticker—a somewhat chubby white seal looking displeased with a thermometer apparently stuck up its rear—What?
I turned off the phone screen and put it into my pocket. I put on my mask, grabbed the alcohol spray, and rang the doorbell at Hoshino-San's next-door apartment.
After a moment...
…She didn't faint, did she? But then—she opened the door, her face looking somewhat flushed.
"Ah~~Uno you're here~" She—What? "Hoshino-San, are you okay?" I asked.
"Relax! I just feel a little—" she said, waving her hand forward, then her body started to fall forward—"HEY ! HOSHINO-SAN!" I quickly stepped forward to catch her, her head leaning slightly on my shoulder.
"I'll take you to the couch to rest first." I gently assisted her, helping her to lie down on the couch.
Looking at her lying on the couch, she was resting with her eyes closed. Apart from looking exhausted, coughing, and a runny nose, her symptoms didn't seem severe. It's possible that she started feeling unwell on the way home yesterday, and her symptoms worsened during the night, preventing her from sleeping well.
I noticed her constantly adjusting her position, so I went to her bedroom and fetched a blanket and a pillow. I gently lifted her head and put the pillow in a comfortable place for her, and then covered her with the blanket.
"Is there anywhere else you're feeling uncomfortable?" I asked her softly. "Hmm... my... my head hurts a lot." she answered weakly, her face showing discomfort and her hands gripping the blanket tightly.
She couldn't take care of herself in this state, and I couldn't bear to leave her alone. "Hoshino-San, do you feel too cold right now?" I asked her gently.
"Uh... yeah, um... yes..." she answered slowly with her eyes closed. I got up, looked around for the air conditioner remote, found it, and turned up the temperature slightly.
After that, I went to her bathroom, rinsed a plastic washbasin, filled it with seventy percent hot water and thirty percent cold water, soaked a towel in it, and brought it to the living room.
I dipped the towel in the water, then wrung out most of the water. I then gently placed the warm towel on her forehead. Her expression seemed to relax a bit.
I watched her resting quietly.
After a while, I reheated the towel and placed it on her forehead again.
"Hoshino-San, did you do anything yesterday that might have led to catching a cold?" I asked her gently. "Uh... drank too much lemon water?"
she answered me.
Uh... dinner last night? If I recall correctly, she didn't drink much.
"I saw you didn't drink much lemon water yesterday, was there anything else?" I asked her gently. "Um... yesterday... I think I took a cold shower."
she answered slowly.
"For a long time?" I asked her. "I... don't remember, I think... after dancing yesterday afternoon, I showered until you rang the doorbell?" she slowly—What?
She showered until I rang the doorbell? I had finished a movie before I went to see her!
"Do you only take cold showers, Hoshino-San?" I asked her gently. "Well... at the beginning there was hot water, but later it ran out." she answered slowly.
I got up and gently opened the balcony door. The water heater is the same model as mine, the movie "The Graduate" is about 100 minutes, so this water heater can provide hot water for about 20 minutes, which means... 80 minutes of a cold shower.
No wonder she caught a cold... I heard her coughing from inside.
It seemed that I had no choice today. I walked over to the railing, dialed the hospital, and waited for the call to go through.
"Hello, this is Amamiya Gorou, a gynecologist. I have an emergency to attend to. My neighbor suddenly has a fever and can't take care of herself. She has no one else to look after her. I'm sorry, I need to take a leave of absence." I said. "Understood, Amamiya-Sensei, thank you for informing us. Are you sure your neighbor's condition requires your personal care? Does she need to be taken to the hospital?" the other party asked.
"Yes, I'm worried about her condition. I believe I need to see her myself. I've already assessed her illness. I will observe her condition. If it worsens, I will take her to the hospital immediately." I replied. "We understand your situation, Amamiya-Sensei. How long do you think your leave will last?" they asked. "I estimate I will need a day. I will handle this issue as soon as possible and return to the hospital." I answered.
After some more conversation, I managed to take the leave. I started thinking about what food is good for someone with a cold.
To be honest, aside from catching a cold when I was a child, I don't seem to have much experience with colds. Among the people I know, the one to ask about making a meal for someone with a cold would be...
But I didn't really want to call— I heard coughing from the room.
Sigh. I dialed a number from my contact list, waiting for the other party to pick up.
"Hello, this is the Amamiya residence." the voice on the other side said. "Hey, Grandma, it's me—" She cut me off. "Oh! My dear grandson! How rare of you to call back home! Did you miss Grandma?" she said joyously. "Kind of, but today I wanted to—" She cut me off again. "Gorou, are you bringing your girlfriend home this time? Should I notify the relatives?" She inquired—
Yes, this is precisely why I don't fancy making these phone calls.
"No, no, no, wait a moment! Grandma! Not every time I call it means I'm bringing a girlfriend home, okay!? I have other things to discuss!" I said, burying my face in my hands.
"Well, what could be more important than you bringing back my great-grandson? Gorou, you're nearly thirty now. There are only old folks and adults in our hometown, no children or babies. I'm bored! I wouldn't mind taking care of a child again, after all, I did help raise you!" she started to ramble.
"No, Grandma, aren't you missing several steps here? It's not like once you have a girlfriend, a baby pops out, right? Can't you just let things take their natural course? And today I really didn't call to talk about this!" I answered, feeling helpless.
"So, do you have a girlfriend?" She asked. "...No." I replied.
A moment later.
"Alright then, what did you need today?" she said, sounding a little impatient. "Do you remember what you used to cook for me when I was sick? The kind that made me feel better really quickly?" I asked her.
"I don't recall having any sort of family heirloom elixir. Or are you referring to the usual meals you ate when you were sick?" She asked. "...Yes, the latter. The meals you prepared when I was ill, do you remember them?" I clarified.
"...You don't sound sick to me?" She queried. "Uh...no, it's not me—" She cut me off. "Who are you cooking for?" She asked, seemingly curious. "Well, my neighbor—" She cut me off.
"Oh!? A girl?" She—what? "Does that matter?" I asked, looking ahead. "Of course, it concerns my great-grandchild." she proclaimed proudly.
"Grandma, please, can you stop fixating on having a great-grandchild?" I said.
After a pause.
"Okay, Gorou, it was lovely chatting with you today. Let's talk again another day. Bye—" I cut her off. "ALRIGHT! ALRIGHT! HOLD ON, DON'T HANG UP!" I shouted.
I took a deep breath.
"...Yes, she's a girl, are you satisfied now?" I finally answered. "Oh, I thought it might have been a boy. That's a relief." she responded—what?
"Grandma, you're being too pragmatic." I retorted. "This is about my great-grandchild—so when are you bringing her home?" she asked—wait, what?
"Grandma, first, she is my patient, second, we're not that close, and third, she's only sixteen." I responded.
"Gorou, first, so what? Does that matter? Second, you know they say 'familiarity breeds affection'! Third, I gave birth to your mother when I was sixteen." she countered—wait a minute, the third point, what the hell, sixteen? I never knew that.
"Grandma, what do you mean 'does it matter?' She's my patient, I'm an 'OB/GYN'. How do you think the baby in my patient's belly came about?" I told her seriously.
"And so?" She—really?
"Grandma, babies don't just spring from stones, nor do they reproduce asexually." I replied.
"What is reproduce asexually?" She asked.
"Anyway, Grandma! Times have changed. If this were to happen, I would be socially ostracized, seriously!" I told her.
"No worries! Then just wait until she's twenty! I can wait a few more years, no problem!" she said. "No, Grandma, this—wait! Today I really just called for a recipe! She's not feeling well right now, can we talk about this another time?" I asked her.
After a moment.
"Um...alright, rice porridge—add a little ginger, steam some chicken breast and dice it." she answered. "With ginger, right?" I repeated.
"Yes, you could also make her a vegetable soup! Add tomatoes, onions, and garlic. Oh yes, garlic is very important!" she instructed. "Alright, alright, garlic, got it." I echoed.
"I used to stir-fry some broccoli, but softer food is better for someone with a cold." she advised. "Mhm, I'll keep that in mind." I affirmed.
"Oh, our Gorou is finally cooking for a girl! It seems my teachings weren't in vain!" she said, laughing. "Grandma, can you not—" She cut me off.
"I thought that since the family persuaded you to become an OB/GYN, you had lost interest in cooking—"
Right, isn't it?
After the family convinced me to become an OB/GYN, how could they think I was still interested in cooking? I gazed at the blue sky ahead.
"Gorou?" She called. "Yes, Grandma, I hear you. Is that about it? I have to go, she's not feeling well." I told her. "Alright then! Don't forget to come visit Grandma when you're free! Bye!" she said. "Sure, I will, goodbye." I hung up.
I should have just googled it instead of putting myself through this. I looked at the black smoke billowing from the chimney in the distance.
Isn't this what they wanted? Isn't this what I had to do? Isn't this why I switched from being a surgeon to an OB/GYN?
After all, my mother—
I heard coughing from inside the room.
Now's not the time for these thoughts; she needs someone to look after her.
I slid open the balcony door and casually closed it behind me, moving closer to Hoshino-San, who seemed to be asleep on the sofa.
I thought about cooking at my place and bringing the meal over later, so as not to disturb her. After all, I just live next door.
Taking the key placed next to her entrance hall, I locked her door and returned to my place next door.
Back home, I took out the necessary ingredients from the fridge. To make a rice porridge with steamed diced chicken breast, I needed to find my steamer, which, luckily, I found after a brief search.
Taking out the chicken breast... ah, it needs defrosting.
Covering my face, I hadn't considered this. But I decided to use the microwave to thaw it.
I put the frozen chicken breast into the microwave and turned on the defrosting function, but I shortened the microwave time.
After each round of microwaving, I would move and turn the chicken breast. It's a bit of a hassle, but at least it ensures that every part defrosts evenly, to avoid some parts being cooked while others are raw.
Once the chicken breast was fully defrosted, it had a nice, even color—from pink to pale yellow. Despite being frozen, it was still not sticky and retained a certain firmness.
I took a sniff; it had no off-putting smell.
Next, I placed the defrosted chicken breast in the steamer and started to steam it. It should take around 20 minutes. Meanwhile, I planned to prepare a vegetable soup.
I cleaned the carrots, onions, garlic, and tomatoes, and cut them into appropriate sizes. I then grabbed a pan, heated a bit of oil, and started sautéing the garlic and onions until the onions turned semi-transparent.
Next, I added the diced carrots and tomatoes and continued to sauté for a while. A few moments later, I added an appropriate amount of water and covered the pan.
The simmering process also took about 20 minutes. By that time, I could start making the rice porridge. I picked up another pot, washed it clean, and washed a cup of rice as well, then drained the water and added four cups back.
After putting it on the stove, I turned on medium heat and slowly brought the rice to a boil until it softened. This also took about 20 minutes, by which time the porridge became thick. By then, the chicken breast was ready. I took it out and let it cool on a plate while checking on the vegetable soup.
Hmm, the scent of garlic was present but not overpowering.
A moment later, I checked on the rice porridge with a spoon. The grains were distinct but had clearly softened. When I lifted the spoon, a thin strand of white liquid was dragged up.
I diced the cooled chicken breast on a cutting board and added it to the porridge. I also prepared some ginger, grated an appropriate amount into the porridge, and waited for the ingredients to meld together.
The vegetable soup was about ready. I seasoned it with a bit of salt and pepper, then covered the pot and brought it over to Hoshino-San's house. Upon entering, I set it on the kitchen counter. She seemed to be sound asleep.
I returned home and saw that the porridge was almost ready, so I turned the heat down and picked up the frying pan, getting ready to stir-fry some broccoli.
I washed the broccoli and cut it into small pieces, then started stir-frying it in the preheated pan. During the process, I alternated between medium and low heat until the broccoli turned green and began to char slightly.
Recalling my grandmother's advice to make it softer, I added a small amount of water. After covering the pot, I turned the heat to low and let it simmer. I took the opportunity to serve the porridge to Hoshino-San, who seemed to have sensed it even in her sleep. With her eyes closed, she appeared to be smelling something.
After that, I dished out the cauliflower and added a touch of salt before bringing it over.
I took a brief rest on the sofa, picked up a tissue nearby, removed my glasses, and wiped the sweat off my face.
The morning sun was illuminating the entire room, and the wind chime on the balcony outside the glass door was gently chiming as always. The quiet hum of the air conditioning wasn't too loud.
Hoshino-San was still sound asleep on the long sofa to my left — albeit with a faint snoring due to her stuffy nose from a cold.
A little later, I went into the kitchen, picked up a bowl and spoon, lifted the pot lid, and served a bowl of porridge.
"Hoshino-San, can you eat?" I asked slowly, then brought the bowl closer to her.
I initially wanted to help her up, but she seemed to get up automatically at the scent of the food.
I handed her the bowl, and she held the spoon in her right hand with her eyes closed.
She scooped up a spoonful of porridge, then — it brushed past her upper lip.
She paused for a moment, then — this time it almost went into her nose.
"Hoshino-San, let me help you!" I said anxiously, fearing she might burn her nose next.
I scooped up a spoonful of porridge.
She kept her eyes closed, her delicate mouth slowly opening to let my spoon in. Once I put the spoon in, she closed her mouth, swallowed the porridge from the spoon. As I slowly pulled out the spoon, it seemed like she still wanted to keep it in her mouth.
She then swallowed, a smile creeping onto her face with her eyes still closed.
...This is just too cut-
No — no, I'm a doctor. I need to stay calm. She's my patient, and she's only sixteen.
I continued to feed her the remaining porridge.
A while later, I had managed to feed her half the bowl of porridge, and got her to have a few bites of the vegetables and vegetable soup.
She didn't seem to like garlic very much and now, with her eyes still closed, she was sitting on the sofa.
Thinking about it now, although I could take care of her all day, I don't have a car in case we need to rush to the hospital. I should contact her guardian.
"Hoshino-San, could you please..." Before I could finish, she had already laid down on the sofa and continued to sleep.
I helped her pull her feet onto the sofa, made her lie flat, covered her with a blanket, and planned to check her phone for an emergency dial setup to find an emergency contact.
Surprisingly, there was one.
I slid open the glass door, walked out onto the balcony, and made the call.

2023.05.28 17:59 waddlek Trying to explain a runaway prop to a non-aviation audience..
Please remove if this type of question isn't allowed.
I am working on a video about an aircraft crash from the 1950s that resulted in the loss of a Mark IV nuclear bomb. Two runaway props were determined to be the primary cause of the accident.
I am trying to find a way to explain constant speed props to a non-aviation audience. I would like some feedback on my explanation. Please let me know if this gets the point across or if I am missing something:
Constant Speed or Variable Pitch propellors serve the same purpose as gears on your car or bicycle. The angle of the blades can be changed depending on the phase of flight and power requirements. The blade angle also controls the RPM of the engine. Setting a smaller, or finer, blade pitch angle produces a smaller force load on the engine, allowing the RPM to increase. At the same throttle setting, a larger, or courser, angle increases the force load on the engine, slowing the RPM. Turning the propeller blades to 90 degrees is referred to as feathering the prop. In this configuration the blades produce no thrust and induce the least about of drag possible.
A runaway propellor occurs when the governor controlling the blade angles fails. When this happens, the blades default to the fine pitch limit. This greatly reduces the load, and the engine will immediately overspeed. The rpm of an over speeding engine – sometimes referred to as a 'runaway prop' – will quickly go past red-line rpm and, unless immediately corrected, the engine is likely to self-destruct or the propeller blades will depart the hub due to the increased centrifugal force. The corrective action is to immediately reduce the throttle and slow the aircraft by pulling the nose up.

2023.05.28 17:57 pacificinjurylawfirm Riding Without Protection: The Dangers of Motorcycle Accidents
Title: Riding Without Protection: The Dangers of Motorcycle Accidents
Hey Reddit community, as an attorney at Pacific Injury Law Firm in Portland, Oregon, I wanted to share some alarming statistics with you regarding motorcycle accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over 5,000 motorcyclists were killed in crashes in 2020 alone. This is a major public health concern that affects thousands of individuals and families each year.
One major factor contributing to these accidents is the lack of protective barriers between riders and the road. Motorcycles simply do not have enclosing structures, seat belts, or airbags like cars and trucks do. This leaves riders more vulnerable to injuries when involved in a crash.
Head injuries are one of the most common types of injuries suffered by motorcyclists. In 2020, over 1,500 motorcyclists were killed in crashes involving a head injury—accounting for almost 60% of all motorcycle fatalities. Other common injuries include road rash (abrasions from contact with pavement), back and spinal cord injuries—over 1,000 fatalities were recorded last year due to these injuries.
Alcohol and drug use also play a significant role in motorcycle accident rates; NHTSA data shows that 28% of motorcyclists killed in crashes had blood alcohol concentrations above the legal limit.
To address this issue effectively, helmets are considered one of the most effective interventions available. In fact, helmets saved over 800 lives in 2020 alone! Furthermore, they reduce head injury risk by up to an astonishing 37%
Increasing public awareness about motorcycle riding risks is another important step towards reducing accident rates; educating people on helmet use and other protective gear while dispelling misinformation on alcohol/drug use while riding can lead us towards safer roads for everyone!

2023.05.28 17:51 Blizzard-destroy-HS HELP. Analyste quantitatif en CDI à paris ou Développeur Freelance
Bonjour à tous. Je suis dans une impasse car je n’arrive pas à prendre une décision. Avant de commencer je souhaite préciser le contexte, bientôt la 30taine je n’ai AUCUNE économie. Meme pas un livret. (J’ai eu un parcours en dents de scie.)
Ma boîte me propose le même poste que jai actuellement en Dev pure en freelance full remote pour un TJM de 450€ (Sachant que j’ai pas une très grande expérience en Dev pure). Les autres Dev sont assez expérimentés, je peux continuer à apprendre dans un contexte international et vraiment l’ambiance y est TRÈS saine. C’est un plaisir de communiquer avec mes pairs tjs à l’écoute.
De mon côté j’ai un profil plus oriente data scientist, stats, voir analyste quantitatif. Chose que je ne fais pas trop actuellement, c’est plus orienté back end. L’ambiance me plaît et le travail n’est pas prenant du tout. Avec cette offre je vais avoir la possibilité d’économiser tout ce que je perçois puisque je n’aurais pas de loyer à payer soit environ 4500 net par mois. Mais voilà je me vois faire ça seulement quelques mois pour reconstruire une épargne que je n’ai pas. Dans 1 an je souhaite changer.
Le dilemme se trouve la.
J’ai une autre proposition en région parisienne sur un poste d’analyste quantitatif en cdi plutôt orienté Dev dans une petite entreprise. Ça me botte bien. On m’a proposé 50K fixe et un bonus qui n’est pas garanti du tout. L’expérience semble vraiment intéressante sur le papier (participer au développement de l’entreprise, ce qui veut dire également travailler plus...). Du à mon parcours non linéaire je ne peux pas prétendre à plus pour l’instant. Et avec ce salaire je risque pas d’économiser des masses à paris.
Disons que même si j’arrive a économiser 10K par an ça va être très compliqué de pouvoir acheter en région parisienne avec 0 épargne dans les 5 années qui viennent. Je n’ai plus 23 ans malheureusement.
La réalité : la vie a avancé et je suis pas prêt d’avoir des économies et de devenir propriétaire si j’accepte l’offre en cdi. De l’autre côté si je ne l’accepte pas je vais avoir du mal à recevoir une offre similaire plus tard (d’ici 1 an, on préféra quelqu’un qui aura garder les pieds dans un poste nécessitant des connaissances de niche et qui a continué à travailler sur des sujets quantitatifs). Si j’accepte le free-lance je vais avoir une vie paisible et des économies mais je vais pas me diversifier dans le boulot.
Vous avez compris : je ne sais pas où me diriger et je suis preneur d’avis/conseils.

~ 1. Introduction ~
Here is a detailed description of my wishlist for a Mario Kart 9 or 10/X (if Tour is considered the 9th installment) I don't expect everyone to like all my ideas. This is just a wishlist. I obviously would be happy with any Mario Kart Nintendo decides to put out but in a perfect world, this is what I would want for it to be the best Mario Kart imo. I hope you enjoy.

*¹ - All and All Mirror options are only available in Grand Prix. After a Circuit has been selected, It'll play each Cup in order of that specific Circuit.
*² - All race and battle modes will feature either a Solo Dash or the new Double Dash option similar to Mario Kart Double Dash for extra replayability and character combinations.
*³ - Even if not many people liked Automatic drifting, it was there for a reason for you to choose. Some liked it. Some didn't. It should be the player's choice.
*⁴ - Camera can also be changed freely during the race from the pause menu.

*¹ - Added a Pro difficulty to make the CPU feel more of a challenge.
*² - Wanted to split the vehicle selections between Solo Dash and Double Dash drivers. Solo Dash drivers will now only select between Karts and Bikes and Double Dash drivers will only select between ATVs and new Buggy vehicles. *Buggys are essential similar to the designs of the Karts used in Mario Kart Double Dash. ATVs are now bigger in size to help fit the idea of 2 drivers on one vehicle.
*³ - The original Super Mario Kart had 5 courses per Cup so I brought that option back for custom races.

- A Report button will finally be added to report cheaters/hackers/etc.
- I'm thinking Solo Dash races will feature the usual 12 players (1st - 12th place) while Double Dash races features upto 16 players but 8 groups total (1st - 8th place).
- Worldwide and Regional Grand Prix will be 2-12 racers (or 4-16 in doubles mode) in a 4-race Cup from any randomly displayed Cups. Cups are then selected based on player voting.
- Create Room will now feature customized options such as Mode, Teams, Items, CPUs, and Vehicles similar to the Create a Tournament option.
- For online, I'd also like for a better ranking system to prevent casual players from racing against competitive players and vice versa.
My Replays. View saved replays from previous races or battles on and offline. * You can now save more than just 6 replays.

~ Other Details
- The race start intro and race finishes to retro courses will have a remake version of their original transitions along with a rearranged verison of their original theme from that respective retro course. Example for better understanding. * Mario Kart GP courses will have the current game's race start and finish transitions.
- I somehow also want to incorporate a way that once the Retro Grand Prix is unlocked, the title screen will have remake versions of the original title screens from previous Mario Kart games similar to Mario Party Superstars. Example
- It would show different title screens at each start up similarly to how Mario Kart 8/Deluxe's title screens Example
- Sometimes the CPU seems to make decisions that only seem to target the player regardless of placement. I want a smarter CPU for harder difficulties that won't just use an item just to use. If a CPU is holding a shell, they should use it logically or defend themselves with it logically.
- I personally am fine with every other mechanic used in Mario Kart 8/Deluxe such as driving techniques used, amiibo settings, Stats, etc. Keep the same driving techniques even during Double Dash mode. I personally was not a fan of Mario Kart Double Dash's drift mechanic and would not want that function brought back.
~ 3. Characters and Vehicles ~
68 Total Drivers (including DLC) 32 Total Alternate Drivers. 100 Total Individual Characters.
- Driver select screen, press R button to rotate between alternate drivers. Some drivers will have upto 9 different outfits to choose from.

The parts available are listed here in the order shown in the vehicle customization screen, with the following notation: ¹ = Changes color, depending on the character. ² = Changes color for the Koopalings. ³ = Changes color for Daisy, Baby Daisy, Rosalina, and Baby Rosalina. (DLC) = Part is only available as downloadable content.
- Personally, I would want a system that prevents everyone from choosing the best racer with the best vehicle parts. For example If Luigi is the best racer and his best vehicle is the standard kart with mushroom tires, and gold glider, obviously everyone will choose Toad and those exact parts to win races. I want everyone to choose their favorite racer and parts that make them comfortable to race in, and not just look at a list of the best racers and parts and just copy and paste that. I don't know how to fix this honestly but I'm sure someone could help with ideas to this to make everyone equal in a way on the track with their own individuality similar to what Mario Kart 7 did with their characters.

2023.05.28 17:09 theservman First street ride since the crash
I had a crash in September of 2021 - heading up the road when a car came out of a parking lot right in front of me. I went face first into the A-pillar at about 30km/h. I came out of it surprisingly uninjured, the only real casualty was my top front teeth (the police told me that I chipped the windshield with them, so I got a little revenge). Naturally, the bike was destroyed.
Due to the vagaries of insurance and global supply chains in a pandemic, it wasn't until last October that I got a replacement (couldn't get anything decent in Canada, so I ended up ordering a Canyon). I managed to get a couple of trail rides in before putting it away for winter.
Well, Friday I finally got it out again (it's been a cold, busy, spring) and took my first on-street ride since the crash.
All I can say is damn! I've heard about PTSD and hypervigillance but I've never experienced anything like that before. Even two days later I'm still edgy.
Anyone have (useful) suggestions for getting over this? I don't need to be told "rule 5", or "don't be a wuss", I'm looking for actually useful suggestions.

Opal stood up with a sigh, grimacing at the pain along her back and arm. She looked down on the man crumpled on the floor. “Sorry Devona. But life’s a bitch.”
“...fuck you,” he mumbled.
Opal’s eyes widened slightly. “Man, he’s one tough cookie. Not much he can do now though.” She pulled the documents out from her bag to verify that they were still there, and then slid them into her jacket. She turned to leave before pausing. Something felt… off. Her eyes scanned the area and she tensed herself. Even with Opal being as alert as she could, she didn’t see the fist coming at her face until it was too late. Her vision spun as her head snapped back, feeling her feet leave the ground as someone slept her legs out from under her. She pushed herself off and jumped to her feet, only to be met with a swift kick waist. She tried to swing her crowbar but a hand wrenched her wrist to the side and a knee slammed into her stomach. She doubled over and felt her lunch struggle to the surface before she was promptly slammed face-first into the wall. She slid down like wet spaghetti onto the floor.
She turned her head to the side to watch the retreating footsteps as she waited for her entire body to stop aching. Devona, if that was his name, was already sitting up, wincing but very much functional despite the blood dribbling down his face. She could see the figure now crouching beside him, doing something with their hands. It took Opal a few seconds to realise that they were signing something.
Devona nodded, rubbing his bruised cheek. “Yeah, I’m fine, Harlow. Don’t worry about me.”
Opal would have sworn out loud, but the pain in her face was making it hard to speak. “Are you kidding me? They sent the damn wolf after these documents too?” Speaking of the documents, why was she after them again? She frowned and rooted around her memories like a child digging in the sand. Right, to sell the information within. Wow, she was scatter-brained. Probably to do with the ringing headache she had.
She had to get away. But with her current situation, a foot race would be a pointless endeavour. All she needed to do was get to her motorcycle parked a few metres away, and she’d be able to depart. She looked over the side of the roof and studied the area. Then she rolled over the side. She grabbed onto the railings by the side and yanked them off, managing to swing herself into a window after skidding down several metres. If she couldn’t outpace Harlow, then she could at least slow them down. She shoved herself to her feet and started to run, the sound of someone scaling the wall already behind her. She shoved desks and cabinets in front of doors as she ran, the only sound she could hear being her own footsteps and bated breath. If she got caught once, if she slowed down for a single second, she’d be headed for the rocks.
She turned the corner and felt that same shiver of anticipation run up her spine. They’d caught up to her, somehow. She readied herself and ducked under but still caught the edge of the hit as Harlow appeared from behind her. She grabbed an oil can and crushed it behind her back, spilling it down onto the floor. They rushed forward anyway, using the momentum to slam into Opal and throw her across the floor. This time it was her scrambling upon the oil to get up, grabbing onto the wall to try to pull herself up. She was instead hoisted up and thrown through the door and onto the clean floor of the corridor where she pushed herself up and began to run again. Something nagged at her but she ignored it, electing to get to the exit as fast as possible.
She finally shoved the door open and ran upon the gravel, finding where her motorcycle was parked. She kicked back the stand and revved the engine, tearing off as fast as she could while weaving for good measure. She relaxed her body once she reached the empty fields of high grass, shooting a final peace sign towards the dwindling buildings. She reached into her jacket and then realised that the documents were not there.
“God. Fucking. Dammit.” That conniving bastard. They’d probably stolen the documents during that final tussle, and the nagging feeling she’d so carelessly discarded was how strange it was that they didn’t continue to chase her. There was enough time to go back, perhaps she could -
There was a massive explosion from one of the buildings, loud enough for the windows on the neighbouring structures to shatter. On second thought, perhaps she’d let this one go.
Claren soared through the air and slammed against the ground and wall, bouncing around like a handball. He pressed a hand to his head with a groan as he stopped, barely managing to dodge the glaive that slammed into the ground and sent a blast of lightning into the earth. As he looked, he could see that metal had been infused into the bone and flesh that comprised the glaive. Laurel came at him again, swinging her glaive again and again as lightning coursed through her body. Claren blocked her attacks, but he was forced to the defensive, the lightning preventing him from getting close.
He pushed forward nevertheless, grabbing onto the end of Laurel’s glaive as she tried to drive it into his chest. He didn’t know how much longer his shield could keep up, but there was no chance for him to take a moment to recover. He could feel the heat from the electricity scouring the air, not hot enough to injure but hot enough to hurt. His fist connected with Laurel’s face and sent her flying backwards before she launched herself forward with a burst of electricity, sending him slamming through the door and into a hallway. He didn’t have time to test if his bones were broken before she was launching herself into the air, electricity worming around her like a writhing cocoon. Claren rolled to the side to avoid her slamming into the ground, sending shards of concrete everywhere. His thoughts rushed around his head as he jumped to his feet and started the process again.
Claren didn’t have time to consider the ramifications of why her magic was so different to what it had been before. All he had was to try and hold her off for long enough to… what, exactly? Figure out a way to beat her? For backup to arrive? Have the crime lords escape? He almost laughed at that one - internally, of course. He barely laughed out loud. He’d dedicated most of his life to law and order, and here he was: potentially throwing his life away for a bunch of high-end criminals. The thought of it casted a bitter taste in his mouth and he could feel his teeth grit together. The sudden, uncontrollable action startled Claren enough to make him almost freeze up. He’d trained himself for years to hold in anything of that ike, and here he was, in the midst of battle yet unable to compose himself. He smoothed his expression again and hit Laurel across the head with a hook.
“You know,” Laurel managed between breaths while dodging and weaving, “this would be a lot easier if you just stood aside.” Her glaive gave her the advantage in reach, but Claren’s bubble provided him with enough manoeuvrability to get in and out.
“I mean,” she continued, “why bother trying to save people like that? They’re scum, or lower than scum. Just the greedy pigs of the world that managed to get enough money to stay on the top of the bottom.”
It was such a mirror of his own thoughts that he almost, for a second, considered it. He tried his hardest to push her words from his mind and levelled his gaze at her. “I don’t make deals with people like you. Not to mention, you already murdered the English council, so don’t pretend like you’re above them.”
Laurel scoffed. “Please, they were politicians. Barely even people.”
She stomped her feet and a wave of electricity radiated off of her, scorching the ground and furniture around her. She raised her hands and a scent of ash filled the air. Fire suddenly flared into existence all around her, bright and blindingly hot. Claren had to jump forward as he felt himself cooking alive from the fire that rose just a few inches away from him. Laurel opened her palm and a wave of flame erupted from her hand right towards Claren. He expanded his bubble just before it washed over him, keeping the scorching heat away. He rolled to the side and outstretched his hand into a finger gun. His shield was sucked around his hand and onto the tip of his finger, hanging there like a dew drop. It fired off and slammed into Laurel, sending her flying backwards. It shot back and wrapped around Claren just as another wave of fire rushed at him.
He dodged to the side as she swung wildly with her glaive, the blade lit by flame. He reached into his coat pocket and pulled out his yo-yo. Laurel guffawed as she saw it, her voice revealing the emotion that her mask was hiding.
“A yo-yo? Seriously?”
Claren’s shield flowed over the yo-yo and he lashed out with it, wrapping around Laurel faster than she could register. He swung the yo-yo around and Laurel followed, being slammed all around the wall and floor like a ball attached to a ping-pong paddle. He pulled and she spun like a top as the yo-yo retracted to his hand before crumping to the floor.
“That’s Captain yo-yo to you,” Claren said dryly. The bubble from the yo-yo started to wash over him. It wavered for a second, and then shattered. That was not good. But with Laurel out for the count, he should be able to wait out for his shield to form again.
Laurel stood up. Claren was momentarily taken aback. Someone who was without any physical enhancements should have been taken out by that assault. She stretched her neck and arms.
“Nice trick. Wanna see me do it?” She lashed out with a strand of lightning, faster than Claren could dodge and wrapped it around him. While it was much faster, it barely tickled his skin as it pressed against him. Then the strand of lightning erupted into flames, and Claren could feel his flesh start to bubble. She slammed him all around the room and the world began to blur, his vision flashing white intermittently from the agony of the experience. She brought him in close, spinning him around like a ribbon dancer would, and punched him in the face. He collapsed to the ground as the last of the fiery electricity stopped holding him up, body still steaming as his wounds hissed.
Laurel picked him up by the collar and dangled him in the air.
“Like I said. This would have been a lot easier if you just stood aside.” She was tall, tall enough that with the two of them at eye-height Claren’s feet couldn’t find the floor at all. She started to carry him towards the window and Claren thought about how high the mansion was from the ground as she threw him through it.
Cirius had taken a quick break when he felt his eyes start to slide from their sockets. He excused himself to the bathroom, died, and then came back out as fresh as a daisy. Ignoring the incredibly confused and alarmed expressions of the crime lords, he continued to lead them out until they were in the front yard.
“Welp,” he said, “you can all go home now.” He heard some commotion from the mansion, and turned around. The noises stopped.
“Huh. Must have been the wind.”
The window shattered and Claren hurtled through. Cirius scrambled around the lawn and managed to catch Claren, taking the brunt of the fall as the man slammed into him. He was burnt heavily all over, and a hiss of pain escaped his lips as Cirius set him gently upon the ground. He looked up as a figure jumped down, landing on top of a car as electricity coursed around her. It was the woman from before, still brandishing her glaive and with her mask covering her face. Bauble, was it?
“Hey,” said Cirius, because he didn’t know what else to say.
“Hey,” she returned casually, leaning against her glaive onto the ruined wreck. She seemed to be trying to appear flippant, but too much of her weight was put on the glaive for that to be true.
“Did you do this?” he asked, gesturing towards Claren.
Cirius nodded. “Not going to lie, Bauble, you suck. I kinda have to fight you now.”
Even with the mask Cirius could feel her glare. “First off, it’s Laurel. Second off, I don’t have time to waste on you.” She directed her gaze towards the crowd and waved her finger around. The crowd surged as if trying to disperse before she slammed her foot and sent a wave of fire soaring up to block them.
“Not you, not you, not you,” she muttered. “Ah, there you are!” The flames dispersed and the crowd backed away from the man she was pointing to. He looked around, as if for anyone to help. Everyone turned and ran towards their cars, getting in and driving away within seconds.
Laurel twirled her glaive and jumped down. “I’m going to kill you now, okay?” She dodged leisurely to the side as Cirius tried to tackle her, sending volts of electricity through his body with a casual backhand. She grabbed Cirius by the collar and threw him with a blast of lightning, hurtling him several metres away. The man turned to run and she shot out a small bolt of lightning, seizing him up and collapsing him to the ground. She stepped forward, scraping the glaive across the scorched grass before being slammed in the back. She whipped around to see Claren pointing his index finger, his face screwed up in pain yet eyes forced open.
“You really don’t know when to quit, so you?” she snarled. She hoisted her glaive into the air but was interrupted once again as Cirius popped out and managed to grasp onto Laurel’s leg. Before she could kick him off, he clambered up onto her back and clung to her.
“What the fUCKKK” she yelled, the yell turning into a screech as Cirius bit down as hard as he could on her shoulder. She wheeled around wildly, shouting curses to the sky as she tried her hardest to shake Cirius off. He continued to hang on, his fingers gripping tightly and only the gloves preventing his nails from sinking into her skin. Fire and lightning roiled off of her yet Cirius continued to cling on. She slammed her back against the mansion again and again. Cirius heard something crunch from within his body. Still holding on with one hand, he grabbed a disk from his pocket and tossed it into the air. Dropping down, he kicked at Laurel’s feet before running away as the disk exploded and sent debris tumbling down onto her. He ran to Claren and hauled him up, trying his best not to touch the deep burns. He turned his attention to the man who was still lying on the ground as if pretending to be dead. Cirius walked over while holding up Claren and kicked him in the side.
“Ah! Just kill me quickly!” he screamed before seeing that it was just Cirius. Cirius stared down at him.
“Just get up and help me support Claren.”
They managed to get into a building and barricade the door. Cirius propped Claren up against the wall as the man started to pace the halls.
“God, where are the guards! They should have stopped her!” he yelled. Cirius grabbed a pen and threw it at his head.
“Shut up. She’s going to hear us.”
“Hear us! Who cares if she hears us! She’ll find us anyway! We’re doomed!”
Claren slitted his eyes open. “Keep it down. I have a headache and it’s…”
“Killing you?” Cirius interjected.
Claren raised an eyebrow. “No. My wounds are killing me. My headache is simply a pain to deal with.”
Cirius chewed his lip. He needed a plan. Devona and Harlow were both off somewhere else, and he didn’t have time to wait for them to come around.
“Think, think,” he muttered to himself. An idea sparked in his head. It wasn’t very good, but it was all he had.
“You there,” he said, pointing at the man who he had thrown the pen at. “Uh, what’s your name?”
“Winston Haxter,” supplied Claren with a pained voice. “He’s the one I was supposed to be negotiating with.”
“I see, I see. What’s your discipline?”
“I, uh, can run well.”
Cirius hummed. “Super-speed, eh? Yeah, I can work with that.”
“No, I run at normal speed. But like, I don’t get tired. I can just keep running.”
“Huh. So you have infinite stamina?”
“Yeah. But like… just for running.”
Cirius hummed again. “Well, I can probably still work with that.” He stepped towards Winston and pointed towards a long hallway. “Alright, when she gets here, you’re going to start running down there.”
“What! She’ll kill me!”
“Come on man. Your magic is literally just running. You can outpace her. ‘Sides, I have a plan. Claren’s going to be at the end of the hallway, and he’ll bubble the two of you up. I’ll distract her and lead her far away where I’ll… I don’t know. I’ll figure it out.”
Winston stared at him. “You’ll die.”
“Oh, most definitely. In fact, probably several times! But hey, that’s just how it is.”
Winston’s face dropped even more, if that was even possible. “You’re absolutely insane. We’re all going to die.”
“Nope! Just me! Anyways, go wait by the hallway. Don’t want to lose any ground.” He walked over to Claren before Winston could protest. He sat down next to him.
Claren titled his head down. “Mr. Walker.”
“You up for the plan?”
He shifted his body and winced. “I am. I don’t think it’s an especially good plan, but I don’t see a better way.” A strange expression settled over his face. It took a while for Cirius to discern it. It was discontentment, irritation, bitterness. Claren seemed to recognise this and swallowed the expression.
“You know, it’s not too late to toss Winston at her and walk away.”
“What did you say?” Winston called out.
Claren sighed and his shoulders sagged. “No. That’s not for me to decide. I have a job, and I need to do it.”
“Why? I mean, you clearly don’t want to protect him.”
Claren looked away. The two of them sat in silence before Clarne spoke up again. “I need to do my job because it’s… it’s not a good job. It doesn’t feel good to look people you know have done horrible, horrible things in the eye and shake their hand. To watch them walk away and know that you could have stopped them but… couldn’t. Or just didn’t. I won’t - I can’t let anyone else do that.” His hand reached up to the two rings on his fingers and twisted them - a golden band with a bright yellow gem and a silver band with a cool blue one.
Cirius stared at the ground. “Wow. That kinda sucks.”
Claren huffed a laugh. “That it does.” He shook his head. “Look at me, talking about my feelings while on the job. How unprofessional.” He staggered to his feet. “You should go and get prepared. Won’t be long until she finds us.”
Claren was right. The door was thrown off its hinges and a figure ducked down. The light glinted off the white mask as Laurel stood in the frame. She stared down across the room at Winston, who was doing a very good job looking like a deer in headlights. She cocked her head to the side. Winston bolted down the hallway, his breaths sharp and panicked. She blasted forward with a bolt of lightning, each step energised as she leisurely followed him.
Laurel ran down the hallway, every step bringing her closer to Winston. Cirius let out a silent exhale. It was time. All the doors along the hallway were open, and a short figure jumped out of one only to be met with an immediate blast of lightning so strong it sent the figure slamming back immediately. Laurel had anticipated a trap being laid. Unfortunately for her, Cirius had anticipated her anticipation. The makeshift, stuffed, humanoid doll wearing Cirius clothes smouldered, the string that attached it to the tripwire carefully hidden across the floor snapped from the sudden force of the lightning. At the same moment as she turned to unleash her magic, Cirius leapt from the opposing side and tackled Laurel, sending the two of them crashing to the ground.
Laurel grabbed him by the arm and slammed him into the wall, fire roiling off of her and washing over him. Cirius kicked at Laurel until he felt it connect with something hard and her grip loosened. He dropped down as he realised that his eyeballs had been burnt off. He scrambled around blindly for several seconds before a glaive tore through his chest and ripped him in half. A foot stomped on his head again and again until his skull cracked open and his brains were mushed upon the floor. Laurel stomped on the desecrated body again and again until blood and gore started to coat the cuffs of her pants.
“You know, I’m starting to feel a little insulted.” She whipped her head around and stared at Cirius, standing there perfectly fine.
“Wha- you-” she looked back at the corpse, then at Cirius. “I killed you!”
She looked back at the corpse. “No I fucking didn’t!” She grabbed her glaive and threw it at him, slicing his face wide open along with the rest of his head. The top half of his head slid cleanly off and onto the floor.
“Missed again,” said Cirius from behind her. She gathered lightning in her hand and sent a bolt right through him.
“You should really aim better.”
“What the fuck!” Laurel screamed. “I killed you! I killed you several times!” “Yeah, I get that a lot.” He dodged the glaive being thrown at him again and turned to run. Laurel charged after him, each charged step leaving cracks within the floor. He ducked down as she ripped through the air, fire and lightning trailing behind her. She brought down a wave of flame with a kick, following it up by swinging her glaive as it crackled with lightning. Cirius ducked under, rushing forward through the flame and punching Laurel in the stomach. His gloves glowed for a second, a frosty cyan that pierced the air, and a blast of energy ripped out that slammed Laurel into the wall.
Cirius was hit with a wave of exhaustion. He’d died thrice in a row, and although there didn’t seem to be any limit on how many times he could die and revive, it certainly wore on him after a while. He needed to think of something to do. Laurel was already drawing herself back to her feet, her mask shifted to the side and revealing her cold, hard eyes that blazed with fury. His mind scoured all of what he knew of buildings like this.
“The boiler room! Of course! If I can get there, I can blow this place sky high and take her down with it.” He forced himself up and started to run, turning around briefly to wave at Laurel. As expected, she gave chase, her movements more akin to a rabid animal than a hunter. He ran through winding corridors and locked doors, barely dodging the stray bolt of lightning or fireball. He could already feel the exhaustion from dying and reviving thrice in a row; he’d be too tired to outpace Laurel if he had to die again.
He reached the door to the boiler just as Laurel caught up, tackling Cirius and sending him crashing through the old, rotten wood. She kicked him in the face as he slid across the floor, preventing him from righting himself. She stepped forward and pressed her foot down on his back.
“I wonder,” she said, “how many times can you die until it becomes too much? Is there even a limit for you?” Her voice was sing-songy and slightly manic, like glass about to shatter into thousands of sharp, sharp fibres. Cirius rooted around his pocket. He didn’t feel any explosives. He clicked his fingers and a spark flicked to life, the cyan light barely visible before fizzling out.
“I mean, if there is, I certainly haven’t reached it yet.” He clicked again and a bigger spark emerged. He managed to shoot it out of his index finger right towards one of the thermal tanks. The tiny spark travelled through the air, hit the tank and did absolutely nothing.
“Well. We’re screwed.” As Cirius started to lament his poor planning skills, Laurel’s head snapped up.
“What was that?”
“Uh. Nothing,” Cirius replied like the excellent liar he was. Laurel cocked her head. “Oh, so that sound from behind that thermal tank over there was nothing?” She lifted her arm and her hand flared with electricity. “Hope you won’t mind this, then.” She shot a bolt of lightning and hit the thermal dead centre. There was a beat of silence. “Oh, fuck.” A moment later, absolutely nothing happened.
“Oh. I really thought those were going to explode. Like, as soon as I realised I had blasted lightning at a thermal tank, I was all ‘that’s going to explode’.” She laughed. “Wow. That’s pretty funny.”
Cirius felt something brush up against the hand that was still in his pocket. He pulled it out.
“Oh hey! I still have an explosive disk!” He activated it, threw it at the thermal tank and the world exploded.
“-ey. Wake up.” Cirius blearily opened up his eyes. He was laid out across the floor next to what presumably had been the building. Claren was crouched next to him, snapping his fingers in front of his face.
“Oh, good. You’re awake.”
Cirius nodded and got up. He was so incredibly tired, but a sense of accomplishment filled his chest. “We did it.”
Claren nodded. “Indeed we did.”
There was a small silence before Cirius broke it. “Hey, about what you said before. I know it probably isn’t much, coming from me, but,” Cirius hovered his hand above Claren’s shoulder. “I think you’re really awesome.”
Claren bowed his head. “Thank you, Cirius.” He stared at the hand. “I’m sorry, what is this?”
“Well, I heard from bossman that you don’t like physical touch. So I’m doing this to show reassurance while still respecting your boundaries.”
Claren blinked. “That’s… pretty thoughtful, actually.”
“Hey, uh, am I safe to go now?” Winston asked, standing a few feet away and ruining the moment.
“Yeah, it should be all good,” Cirius responded before a bolt of lightning ripped through Winston’s head.
Claren immediately flared up his shield around the two of them, blocking the next bolt of lightning. Laurel, her mask half-shattered to show her furious eye, tuxedo torn with skin scraped raw underneath, and arm clearly broken staggered towards them.
“You clever, clever little fucker. You led me on quite the wild goose chase.” Her mouth twisted into a manic grin. “Typically, I’d just leave you be. But now? I think I’m going to kill the shield guy first and string out his body across the buildings here. Then I’m going to throw the little one in a box and toss him into the deepest, darkest part of the ocean.” She hoisted her glaive as lightning crackled around her, larger and more volatile than before.
Claren narrowed his eyes. “Cirius. Are you in any condition to fight?”
Cirius shook his head. “Going to be honest, this feels like a running situation.” As if on cue, a wall of flames erupted to life around them.
Something silent flew through the air. A thin, red line appeared over Laurel’s cheek. The crossbow bolt embedded into a wall. Laurel turned around and Harlow faced her, holding a crossbow aimed straight at her. There was a beat of silence as Harlow stared her down, their message held clearly in their hands. Laurel stamped her foot and a circle of flame enveloped her. When it cleared, she was gone. Harlow stared off towards the air, as if contemplating pursuing her, but turned to Claren and Cirius instead.
“I must admit, it would have been very useful having you here earlier.”
I was busy, they replied as they poured a blue vial over Claren’s wounds.
“Where’s bossman?” “Right here.” Devona popped into existence behind them and his eyes scanned the area. He looked down at the two of them. “Claren. You don’t look so good.”
“I could say the same about you. Broken hip?”
“Certainly feels like it. Cirius, you alright?”
Cirius flashed him a thumbs up. “You know it.”
“I’ll inform you of the details after I get these wounds treated,” Claren told Harlow. “I think I’ll be fine to walk on my own for now. I’ll let you know if I require any assistance.”
They made it all the way back to the original drop-off point and called Axon. After Claren explained a basic overview of why they were so late and Harlow was forced to promise to describe everything that happened, the portals opened up. Claren waved Harlow and Cirius through but held Devona back.
“Yeah? What’s up?”
Claren hummed. “Cirius was… the only reason that I survived. If it wasn’t for him, then I wouldn’t be here right now. He may seem strange and irrational, but-”
“When push comes to shove, you can count on him.”
Claren nodded. “It took me a while to realise that. But from what I’ve heard from Axon, you seem to be able to put up with Cirius’s less serious side very well. How is that?”
Devona scratched the back of his head. “I don’t know. Guess I’m just used to it.”
“I see.” Claren bowed his head. “Goodbye, Mr. Verdant. And do get that hip checked.”
“Jamie, no! That’s a terrible idea!”
“Come on, Vivian. It’ll be great! I’ve constructed the perfect plan!”
Vivian folded his arms. “Oh yeah? And what is that, pray tell?”
“Alright, so, in order to make our own water-slide, we steal all the blankets from all the houses and wet them. We tie them together, and then we attach it all around the town and slide around! It’d be amazing!”
Vivian stared at his twin sister with a mix of disbelief and amazement. “And how are we going to attach it all around the town?”
She faltered. “I’ll… I don’t know. I’ll think of something.” She clasped her hands together. “Come onnnnn Vivi, please!”
Vivian sighed. “Fine. Just this once,” he replied, perhaps for the fifteenth time.
“Yay!” Jamie slung her arm over his shoulder. “I promise you, this is going to be awesome.”
“I’m sure,” he responded dryly, but he couldn’t hide the small grin on his fsce.
Laurel Pariah was pissed. She winced as she jolted her broken arm, and she felt how her entire body radiated with pain from every movement she took. The wind was howling, so she didn’t hear the footsteps approaching until they were right behind her.
“You’ve returned,” the figure said brightly.
“That I have.”
The Dreamer hummed, and Laurel shifted her gaze to see him picking at his nails. “Did you achieve your mission?”
“I did. I just ran into some… complications.”
The Dreamer chuckled unkindly. “I can see that.” He cocked his head to the side, his expression hidden behind a mask decorated with white stars. “You broke your mask again. They’re not going to be pleased if you keep doing that, you know?”
“They collapsed a fucking building on me. What do you exp-”
The Dreamer put his hands up. “Hey now, hold your horses. Yes, yes, opponents were tough yadda yadda. I get it, I really do. Sucks to get your ass beaten so often, doesn’t it, poor little baby? I mean, I wouldn’t know, but still.”
Laurel grit her teeth. “Go fuck yourself.”
The Dreamer laughed. “Well then, I’ll see you later, Demon of Babel. Toodles!” He walked away, deep into the thicket of trees until he vanished from sight. Laurel kicked at the dirt before turning to walk away too, leaving only the wind to howl to an empty sky.
