2023.05.28 14:32 Joe_and_Suds Question: Futures Time and Sales

When I watching the charts, I generally keep an eye on the Time and Sales section. I notice there are constantly tiny 1- 3 USD orders going through (I'm assuming Algo bots). But then, when what appears to be a real order, gets printed it displays low sum numbers like a few hundred USD to a few thousand USD.
Is the time and sales displaying only people's actual margin on the trade or is it displaying the total trade including the leverage amount?
I ask because even with my small futures account size, when I trade on 10-20x leverage, the amount of my trade is tens of thousands of dollars, but I never really see the time and sales show similar trades from other people.

2023.05.28 14:32 ThatSleepyBean 32 [M4F] Texas/Online. Lonely teddy bear looking for an online partner. 😇🫂

First things first, I'm most likely AuDHD, or neurospicy as I've heard some people call it 🤣 So right off the bat I'm looking for someone who doesn't care about stuff like that 🙂
Because of my AuDHD I'm shy, very shy, and quiet. I like to chat online A LOT because I'm often uncomfortable speaking. So an online partner would be lovely 😅 We can chat all day, trade stories and hobbies, or play some games online if that's your thing. I'm not opposed to taking it beyond online eventually, if we enjoy eachothers company. But just online for now, okay?
Little more about me: I'm Caucasian, 6'2, 275lbs, I'm pretty strong, but a little chubby too. I like to call it the teddy bear body 😋 I'm currently dieting and try to keep active so I'm looking to lose a bit more weight, if I can keep away from the sweets 😅
I'm artistic, empathic, gentle, kind, intelligent, introverted, and LOVE spending time online with my partner. Seriously, if you're someone who doesn't like to chat online a lot, we probably won't get on very well 😅 I want to feel connected and have someone who wants that same feeling, to feel not so damn alone in this cold world. I want someone who can be there for me, and I promise I'll always be there for you 😊❤
Art and love are what give this life meaning. I have the art, now I just need the love 🥰🫂
I'm not one to sugar coat myself so I'll say right now that I live with family at the moment, I have some issues with intimacy, and I do a little adult writing for a particular subreddit when I'm in that mood 😅 If you don't like any of that, that's just fine. Good luck on your search for love ✌🙂
I have a few hard limits/preferences. No heavy drug use, no alcoholism, no smoking. (Weed is okay, especially if it's medical, I don't partake but I don't mind it.)
No religious zealotry, I don't mind religious people as long as they aren't obnoxious about it. Proselytism is a HARD pass for me.
I'm not comfortable with obesity. Thick, or chubby is totally all good with me, more than good 😏 But I've got my limits when it comes to weight.
And lastly, I'm only looking for partners within the US/Canada or mayyybe Europe, but the further apart our timezones are the more conflicted our schedules will be 😵
Scammers, sellers, and catfish keep moving, I'm not your mark. I'm here for love, and I'm not an idiot. I will be asking for photo verification at some point to make sure you are who you say you are, and I'll gladly provide the same thing in return.
Tell me your favorite color in your opening message, it's important to me that you read my whole post, so that let's me know you did 😋 anyway I look forward to meeting you. 🫂

Sorry if it's a dumb question, I couldn't google something, unless I totally missed it. I have Discarded Works and Fury of Giants available, both of which I have completed, so that's 6 bosses. Are there more raids that are unlockable or am I missing something?

2023.05.28 14:31 Good-Sea-3821 How Till Lindeman saved my life!!

Hi all . Since there is a big false scandal broke out around Til Lindemann, I would like to support him and tell the story of how he saved my life!
Last year 2022 on May 30/31 there was a Rammstein concert in Zurich. My friend and I booked a room at the Alex Hotel in Thalwil. After checking in, as we still had time before the concert, we decided to take a swim in the lake , we took some cocktails and food with us, we had a good and fun time . Margot (my friend) was on the beach and was on the phone while I was swimming , I realising that I swam too far I began to panic and began to choke. I wanted to scream but couldn't because I couldn't breathe. My whole life flashed before my eyes. I had only one thought in my head: I don't want to die! I can't leave my son! Bet then unexpectedly I felt someone's strong hands and this person pulled me out of the water to the shore and he didn’t even though about risking his own life he saved me!! My friend and I were both shocked! We did not immediately understand that this man was TILL LINDEMANN! He just patted me on the shoulder asked if I was okay and left. In the evening we went to a concert and we were invited backstage to an after party , there in backstage Till approached me and asked how I was doing and how I felt? Me and Margo talked a little with him. He is a very kind and generous person. Till Lindemann saved my life! If not for him my son would become an orphan! I don't think he's being fairly bullied on the Internet! #justicefortilllindeman #justiceforrammstein #rammstein #tilllindeman

What’s Unique About This?
This course is different. It’s probably a lot different than some of the others you’ve checked out. That’s why it works. That’s why so many others just like you have made it work for them.
It’s simple
It is a simple seven step program that you can do from anywhere. It’s even easier than wholesaling houses. You don’t need a loan, your buyers don’t need a loan, and you don’t need a buyers list.
It can be put into play right away
This is a system you can begin working today. You could be putting money back in your pocket in less than 30 days.
It works with your schedule
It can be done in just a couple hours a week, while enjoying your morning coffee, on your lunch break, watching TV, sitting on the beach, or watching the kids play outside.
You can do it from anywhere
You can use this system in your state, across the country, or to make money on homes in the US while you are on an extended vacation or retire in the Caribbean.
We focus on cheap houses most others overlook
The best thing about this program is that it will train you to find homes with little to no competition. That’s a big problem today. To many investors are fighting over expensive properties, and they end up overpaying or losing out on deal after deal. Not with this program!
We turn properties into cash using seller financing and notes
We don’t fix up properties, or count on end buyers getting mortgage loans from banks. We seller finance them to families and investors who really want them, and then collect ongoing passive income, or sell the notes and make instant cash.
We provide a clear step by step process and the resources you need to find, fund, and flip your deals
The problem with 99% of real estate course and even those $40,000 coaching packages is that they throw a lot of information at you, but still leave you wondering what to do next. Filthy Riches gives you a clear step by step plan so you can just get going, and keep going.
We invest heavily in your success
We’ve not only invested a lot in creating this, but as you’ll see, we’re willing to put up the cash to fund your first deal, and will even buy deals from you. We believe in this program that much. And that’s how serious we are about investing in your success.
So What Exactly Is Filthy Riches?

2023.05.28 14:29 Cold-Basil1217 Choosing Brokers for Long-Term Investing.

As an 18 year old with a determination to get into investing early, I’ve been trying to find an online broker that would be beneficial for long term investing in etf’s or index funds for someone based in Australia. However, I’ve been having a little trouble finding/choosing the optimal broker with low fees.
As I’ve read on this subreddit, I’m interested in developing a wide and diversified portfolio (consisting of predominantly index funds/etf’s considering my age and risk tolerance) that I can hold on to for ~40 years until I’m ready to retire.
Although I’m eager, I’m aware that there’s a lot I don’t know and I’ve been struggling to find the optimal broker considering my investing intentions.
I’d really appreciate any broker recommendations or tips for investing, as I’m eager to learn!

2023.05.28 14:29 Eisgboek Am I being unreasonable?

I feel like kind of an asshole even posting this when some of the posts at the top of this sub are so much bleaker, but here goes.
My wife and I are lucky enough to have lived in a 2-bdrm rent-controlled apartment for the last 15 years. It's an apartment in a house so only 4 units total. Even luckier is that it came with a stacking apartment-sized washer & dryer in a hall closet.
The washer went the other day (20 years old so no huge surprise). We got in touch with the property manager and they decided to replace both the washer & dryer.
We weren't here when they were installed so we were surprised to get back and see that they weren't apartment sized but rather full-size units.
They're absolutely massive. They take up the whole closet. We used to be able to store other laundry-related stuff in there (soap, ironing board, iron etc...) and now we have to try and find room in our already seriously cramped apartment for all that stuff and then go get it from elsewhere whenever we want to do laundry. We also don't even need them, there's only two of us. I can't see us ever needing to do a load of laundry that big and we'll just end up wasting water and hydro.
It feels pretty or ungrateful to complain, but man this is going to actually make things tougher for us. Just curious what other folks would do. Suck it up, or try to nicely mention the issues.

2023.05.28 14:28 Unusual-Carpet-6359 One large second ship to go with C8R Pisces or 2 smaller ones?

Hey citizens! I need help from those with more experience!
I started with the Aurora in 2017 with the Squadron 42 add-on, played a bit and shelved the game partly because my 1070 in my laptop wasn't up to the task. I built a rig with a 4070ti about 6 months ago and have been hooked on the game ever since. To be clear the 4070ti helped immensely with immersion but the game did go through major improvements during my time away. I think they were just adding the first moon when I first played.
I CCU'd to a Nomad and ROC (rented) mined for a while, very much enjoyed mining and making aUEC that way. I did love the Nomad. I later CCU'd to a Prospector and had a blast with that mining loop for a couple months before realizing I could now only mine and I wasn't overly excited with the CCU options for that so I got back on the RSI site searching and all over google and youtube researching my options. I inevitably melted my entire game package including the Squadron 42 to get more currently useable money in store credit to start over and picked up a C8X game package. Didn't buy it with my credit as the Invictus Warbond deal was a great savings and I had a few bucks to toss at a new ship. (You got me RSI!) Immediately spent $20 of my credit to upgrade to the C8R and I couldn't be happier with the little gem! I will be keeping the C8R without question but I now have been sitting on $165 store credit and can't seem to decide between a single Connie or possibly 2 smaller ships. A Titan variant and a Nomad, A Hull-A and Nomad, A Cutter and a Nomad, ETC. I would like to bring ROC mining back to my available game loop now that the Prospector is gone hence the reason Nomad is listed in all of those options. I am not opposed to other suggestions that fit a ROC.
So, Do I go with a Connie Taurus as a solo all arounder? Minimal $25 investment needed to go that route. Brings in many game loops including trading and from what I read it can also do some bounties if I venture away from the passive game loops I have been enjoying. Have the C8R for the bunkers. My brain is symmetry wired so I can't fly the Corsair or that would have been an option. I flew both the Connie and Corsair at Invictus.
Or, would I be better served spending the credit on Two ships that have more specific roles? I REALLY want the C1 Spirit but that's looking like the end of the year.
I thank everyone in advance for any real game experience that may help sway me!

2023.05.28 14:28 _Norman_Bates What was the point of Irreversible?

I am not sure how I feel about this movie. I didn’t enjoy watching it very much, not because of the rape scene but because it was so hard to get immersed in it. I will go through a few different points but then get to what I think could make it very interesting, except that I am unsure if it’s the right interpretation.
First, an overview of the movie. It is told in Memento style, with scenes going backwards revealing more of the story. While in Memento it serves a plot purpose and helps you connect with the protagonist, I am not completely sure what it achieves here. The first half of the movie is pretty much two French guys yelling and fighting. The first scene is happening in some gay bar, cameras are all over the place, it’s hard to keep track let alone care about what’s going on and this continues as you slowly start to pick up the story. They were getting revenge on a guy who beat up and raped one of the guy’s girlfriend.
Revenge movies normally try to evoke some emotions of justice in the viewer, making you care for the characters, then feel the injustice that happened, and then get some satisfaction in the end. There are variations on this theme, subverting expectations etc but this is the standard format.
Here, the revenge happens before you give a shit at all. But then, as the movie goes back and you see more, it doesn’t actually get better. But I’ll get to that in a bit. I am just trying to say that the way the scenes are introduced, there is no way to get immersed or invested in the characters during their most dramatic moments (executing revenge, rape scene).
I almost stopped watching because the movie and the two screaming guys were really annoying me but I was waiting to see the Belucci rape scene. When it happened, it was definitely the high point of the movie and partially just because everything before was just chaotic and hard to follow. I didn’t really think the scene was very extreme like most people were describing it. It’s a long scene but it’s not that graphic.
I think what’s more shocking about it doesn’t come from the fact you’re watching a 10 min rape scene but that it takes Monica Belucci, who is considered some untouchable beauty, and you see her getting anally raped by a guy who seriously hates her existence. Even though her rape wasn’t planned, she was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, the guy is absolutely disgusted by her. It’s not one of those “she’s so hot I can’t help myself” rapes, the guy sees her as a rich bitch used to getting what she wants cause she’s hot, and he hate rapes her, calling her a sow and similar names in the process.
This is also the first we see of her character so you can’t really care for her either. But what really comes through is how much the rapist can’t stand her. When he’s done raping her, he bashes her face in.
To me that was the most interesting part about the scene, not the fact that she got raped or how disturbing it is to watch a rape, but the amount of honest hatred and disgust the guy had for her. It’s kind of ironic, he’s the fucked up rapist and she’s Monica Belucci but he is utterly disgusted by her in the process.
Then the movie goes back and we learn more about her and the two main guys… and it doesn’t make anyone any more likeable.
Now I usually hate when people criticize movies and shows for not having likeable characters - it’s very childish. But I am not talking about morality here, I am talking about how likeable someone is to watch, and here some very shitty people can make great characters. Also, not every movie needs likeable characters, sometimes that’s the whole point. But normally a tragedy and a revenge movie would require the viewer to give at least moderate shit about them. To do it, it convinces you that the victim is a good person in at least some way, that the avenger is a good person or at least someone who loves the victim, and that their relationship was something special (e.g. Mandy).
But this movie does none of it.
The protagonist is supposed to be some French Chad, a super obnoxious guy who does drugs, cheats on his girlfriend, takes her money and sounds mentally challenged (he just shouts shit out like he has Tourettes). He also stole the girl from his super simpy friend whom he still keeps around to boost his ego, so a shit friend too. Also just an annoying character overall. Normally when someone executes revenge, the viewer should believe how much the victim meant to them but we just saw this guy cheating so it comes across more like it’s just his natural behavior and the stakes aren’t even that high.
The simpy friend is one of the most pathetic characters. His friend took his gf and he desperately clings on to them, in fact I don’t understand why he’s even involved in the whole plot but whatever. He is obsessed with his ex-girlfriend and idolizes her because she’s pretty, trying to get her boyfriend to treat her with more respect while she literally tells him that she prefers the other guy cause he doesn’t care about how she feels. He constantly self-deprecates while they laugh at him. It’s hard to watch him.
Monica’s character Alex is also a total stereotype and it’s kind of funny how rapist’s reading of her doesn’t get proven wrong, in fact the more we see of her the less likable she is. We learn that she left her ex for his best friend because she likes how the other guy only focuses on his own pleasure while having sex, but still keeps the ex around awkwardly. She knows that her boyfriend cheats on her and flirts with others in front of her but is still happy she learned he knocked her up. After learning that fact, she goes on to party.
I think it’s interesting how the movie establishes that she likes to be treated like shit and is turned on by the guy who doesn’t care about her pleasure. There was even a scene when they talked about anal and it seems like she was up for it. So in that context, is the rape scene supposed to say this is what she wanted when taken to the extreme?
Overall after seeing it, it’s hard for me to understand what the intent was. It wasn’t made to make the viewer care about the revenge or the rape, or the characters involved, or at least I can’t see that dimension.
But it is possible that the real revenge scene (the moment supposed to provide the viewer with righteous satisfaction) was never intended to be the beginning of the movie/end of the story, but the rape scene?
I know this sounds fucked up but what I mean is, movies often play on viewer’s instincts through extreme scenes that are enjoyable in the context of the movie - e.g. people love to see annoying groups of friends get massacred in slashers, it doesn’t mean they actually believe every slightly annoying person deserves it in real life, so I don’t want this to be taken the wrong way.
The rapist looks at Belucci and sums up her personality, and then degrades the shit out of her. In the context of the movie, does the rape work metaphorically to take her off the pedestal people like the simp friend put her on and give the viewer some sick enjoyment to see her get treated that way. The hatred the rapist feels towards her and the desire to destroy her seems like the most honest character motivation in the movie (as I mentioned before, the weird character relationships lack any strength of conviction so this hatred is for example more convincing than her boyfriend’s anger).
Maybe the idea is that the director knows that’s what people really want to see happen to her, and that’s the real thing that will disturb them.
Maybe I’m totally wrong, but if this was the angle, then the movie might be genius.

How do I get it right?
Hi, I'm new to the ai stuff and trying to get good at it. I create various children's stories and I need to generate illustrations for my scenes, And I totally don't get what I want and how I want it.
This is my prompt:
A beautiful forest scene with tall trees, lush greenery, and rays of sunlight filtering through the branches. In the center, a young wolf, stands with a gentle smile, surrounded by various animals like deer, rabbits, birds, and squirrels, all looking up at him with admiration.
I'm drowning here! I need help with the prompt.

2023.05.28 14:28 Taylor-Swifty A4A Anyone Else Like OCs?

[possible fandoms: Transformers, Totally Spies, Disney, TMNT, Street Sharks, Pixar, Star Wars, G. I. Joe, Nintendo, Marvel, DC, possibly more!]
I am 18+ and all participants and characters must be 18+.
Hey there! Most people call me Desi. I am a role player, obviously! I usually spend my time indoors every day with a mild excursion here and there to the store, movies, or beach. I adore writing, but that's obvious.
I am very versatile on genre, I have major preference for romance, drama, slice of life, mysteries, action and adventure, Hallmark-esque plots, and anything else we might conjure up! I do have tons of canons and OCs! I’m sure you can find one you like. I can write from a paragraph to novella.
I am looking for any gender of partner and character, I have so many unique characters and ideas for each one! I can also slide my OCs into any fandom.
Ideas:
your character replaces Sam/Charlie in the Transformers franchise while fixing various mistakes made by Michael Bay. I have the characters set up on my server, with alternate designs for Jazz, Sideswipe, and Hot Rod.
I also have a ton of Disney characters, I’ve been dying to play out a ripple in the space time continuum where one or a group of them get sent to the real world.
I also am hunting for a Totally Spies role play.
My character is a Spanish heiress, who lives a life of luxury, only her father is murdered, and the people who did it, are now after her. She runs away in search of a bodyguard to help her get back what was stolen from her.
The next idea I have is for a relationship that is on the rocks, and the two are left trying to navigate their lives past the honeymoon phase and learn how to adapt to living together.
This is specific to my character but she was a championship surfer, and she got injured at the top of her game. I really want to play out her becoming a mentor, teaching someone how to become the next champion.
One of my characters goes undercover to try and expose a illegal ring, this would play out like a suspense or thriller, could play male or female.
An emotionally damaged stripper who is abused by staff spends her days trying to get by, until the day comes where she meets someone who could help her pursue her true dreams of running her own operation.
A Russian woman who was stolen from her family as a little girl and tormented into becoming a living weapon is hired to bring your character to them. On the way, she finds out that the people who hired her are working for the militia that made her the way she is, and so, she decides to take a stand, and wipe them out.
This is only a third of my ideas, not even that, a fraction! Come check out my characters, let’s discuss something!
I have men, women, young and mature, thieves, business owners, single mothers, wayward young adults, college students and staff, bounty hunters, detectives, police officers, victims, patients, crooked therapists, strippers, so many unique stories to tell! I guarantee one of them will strike your fancy!
I am looking for a romantic role play as one of my many OC characters, drama or major events will happen depending on the character you select, and I have 300+ so far.
I also have many canon characters I would love to play as, such as Legolas, Transformers, Marvel and DC , Avatar and Disney.
I have many ideas depending on who you choose!
I am a very affectionate person, I love to make people happy, so I am always open to adjusting characters or role plays.
I don't like role plays with action asterisks, Sorry! I also don't like to role play without proper punctuation and grammar. I usually write at least one paragraph. 25 being my record.
I am a firm believer in conversation so I most likely will text you OOC for any reason, I also prefer to keep things adult, meaning I don't take part in petty or childish arguments.
I don't ghost either, so Ill probably rip the bandage off and tell you why I don't want to role play anymore.
I also love having friends! I used to get bullied quite a lot for many, many reasons, so I haven't had many friends in my 20 years of living. Lets chat, get to know one another!, I've been role playing for a long time, about 6-8 years give or take? I typically enjoy modern role plays with real life basing.
I enjoy stories of the romantic genre as well as action and adventure. My characters are original with face claims, some are canon characters from Marvel and DC. Characters like Barney, Captain America, Superman, just really selfless characters have always been my inspiration.
I always try to write my characters with loving aspects if I can. Life is broken and many people suffer, life isnt perfect so I usually write some darkness for a character if I feel it.
I don't use random face claims, I use actors or media icons I feel fit the character, I mentally put myself in the position of director, my role play is a movie, and I am casting the character, that is how I usually go about it, and if you don’t like it I am not the partner for you.
I definitely want a partner who can be a friend, who can be detailed yet tame, someone who can give me something to reply to, I am not very picky. I don't like people who are judgmental though, I prefer good vibes only.
Replies from me are vary. Sometimes I cant write as much as Id like because I get a writers block.
Sometimes I can reply 5 times a day, but sometimes I cant reply for a day maybe even two or three. But usually I update OOC. I look for people who aren't looking for perfection, I don't like role players who are too arrogant about their skill. I wouldn't say I'm the best role player out there, so if we don't mesh I completely understand.
I keep my characters location/job vague so that I can work them into a plot better. They are pieces to the puzzle, and I keep them so they can fit better into any story we choose!
I will only be role playing on discord partly just to be able to show you my original character portfolio server, which has channels with their backgrounds, age, and their galleries.
Simply DM me for my tag and we can get things started.
Sexuality wise all my characters are adjustable.
Reply wise, this will be fairly advanced. I strive to keep things above a paragraph but I can go lower depending on the plot. I write a maximum of 10 paragraphs but my usual is 3-4.
my character portfolio will be the main key to our discussion, so you will be viewing it upon your interest. I have 100+ characters. I can also role play over email or reddit chat, that way I can just copy the bios and send the photos.
That being said our characters will have romance, and adult content will be ahead If desired. All my characters are adults.I am looking for action, adventure, romance of course is my favorite, mystery, drama, anything is up for debate!
I am looking for both male or female characters to partner my own with, as well as trans or non binary as well, all are welcome.
I hope we can have a fun role play together!

2023.05.28 14:27 NARVIKexe Blatant aimlockers bypassing AC with a plain clear as day aimlock and a bit of FACEIT RANT.

4-man stack of albanians playing with 2 blatant aimlockers also confirmed before demo-review by the Solo player from their team later on.
Cheaters: Armir01 and -blendy-
Easiest to spot aimlock scenes are for -blendy- ,i'll post the round and ticks from the demo below:
You might wanna slow them down to 1/4 or at least 1/2 to understand what I'm talking about
Relevant demo ticks and rounds:
Match room: https://www.faceit.com/en/csgo/room/1-fa12e8b1-a22a-40bf-ae57-0564623aecc8/scoreboard
How can such a shitty aimlock/aimbot bypass your much intrusive anticheat?
Why am I constantly being matched up with lowlife 50-200 match accounts when we have close to 10k matches in total and an FBI score of over 980?
Also I wasn't able to report any of them via the matchroom due to red error appearing saying something like "something went wrong" Neither me or all the other players from my party couldn't report any of these 2 albanian dogs.
Stop chasing the profit and invest in your f*cking anticheat cuz I'm tired of losing the games and my mind to new account cheaters and smurfs that ruin the fucking game.
You created the account verification bullshitery,for what? What does it help if I'm still being matched up with 100 games 2400 elo monkeys and with lvl 0 steam account buyers with low level on faceit playing their lifegame making 30 bombs whilst their average K/D is under 0.85?
I'm losing my shit over here on the extremely low quality services you offer..not to mention the insta-picks and the queue not respecting my map preferences(ancient,inferno,nuke) picked and I get to pick between anubis,vertigo and dust2 best case scenario. There are instances where there are only 2 maps to pick between and I don't even get to ban.
You can't expect the players to forcefully play a match on a map they absolutely detest but punish them with bans if they don't join. I think this is the idea behind being able to veto the maps or isn't it? If so then please choose random maps for each tournament you create and support. I can't wait to see PRO csgo being played on random maps and not being able to ban maps they don't wanna play.
I'm on the edge of quitting a game I invested a lot of time in ever since I was 16. All because of you being UNABLE to provide ONE quality trait. We as players don't ask for much but at least get more than 1 thing right as currently your queueing sucks,your website works like dogshit,your servers are honestly dogshit as I think everybody experiences that first kill game-freeze in the first pistolround..not to mention a 10 players server hosted in germany has more unstable FPS than a 23 slotted WASE ffa server. Me as probably many more aren't keen on investing 2k euros in a i9 pc with a 4080 gpu just to balance out the shitty performance from your garbage servers and yet everybody wonders why the faceit players are the most toxic human waste people..well I guess because there are just too many frustrations for which you are mostly responsible. I can't be flower-power full happy and kind after I lose 2 games against some albanians that wasted half their wage on some premium cheats.
Don't you dare delete this thread.

2023.05.28 14:27 DpressedLionsFan Xivu Arath's voice actor is some of the best work done narratively in a LONG time. (Spoilers)

Seriously, the memories in Ghosts of the Deep tell so much about Xivu, how emotionally scarred she is. How much she truly hates Savathun. The hole in her heart when we killed Oryx. How much distaste she has for us after Oryx death.
Bungie did an A+ job slowly introducing Xivu to us up to this point and she's being integrated in such a great way that this dungeon makes me very excited for the lead up to TFS. I can totally see us having to revive Savathun to fight Xivu Arath.
Bungie done good.
