Link to Part 1

Link to Part 2
He wasn’t going to lose anyone again.
At least, that what he told himself.
Candorick sat at his bed, hands planted firmly on his face.
They reminded him too much them.
As he watched Cadia explode, he made a promise to himself.
He was done with caring.
He joined the Imperial Guard because he wanted to protect those he cared about.
All that brought was sadness and depression and betrayal.
He would kill every last one of them.
They took everything from him.
And now he was going to take everything from them.
The heretics used their suffering as an excuse to put suffering on others, and he would not allow that to continue.
But isn’t that what Candorick fought for?
Candorick looked at his hands.
“Am I..?”
Tears streamed down his face.
“No you’re not…” an slow, deep echoey voice said from a small closet hidden in the corner of the room.
“What? Who was that?” Candorick said, wiping away the tears on his face, and then looking at the closet’s door.
“They deserve it…” The echoey voice whispered.
“Whoever that karking is, come out right now!” Candorick said, shouting at the door. He stood up, and began to slowly head towards the closet.
“You must show them… show them all…” the echoey voice whispered.
“They will not trample on you, like they did to your family…” the voice said.
Candorick approached the door.
“Open the door Candorick. Open the door! OPEN THE DOOR!” The voice now screamed, the door began to shake, red light emanating from the cracks in the door frame.
Candorick stared at the door. He had to open it. He had to.
“What are yee doing Templar?” Candorick turned around. Narvast stood there, glaring at Candorick.
“Nothing, priest.” Candorick said, letting go of the door handle.
“I havith been looking for thou all day!” Narvast said. “Yee haven’t been conversing with that freak, have yee?”
“No… No I haven’t.” Candorick replied.
“Good Templar! The freak will only bring wreck and ruin to yee faith! He is an abomination who deserves nothing but hate!” Narvast said, her voice echoing through the halls of the Mourningstar.
“Have yee seen the slab anywhere, Templar?” Narvast asked.
“No… try looking in mission control, maybe he got lost again admiring all the colorful screens…” Candorick knew that was a lie. Bogra was probably still with Keating enjoying his rations. But he just wanted to be alone.
Narvast turned around around and headed out of the bunk-room, towards the center hall.
Candorick looked back to the closet. The door was gone. Candorick examined the room, no door like the one he saw was anywhere in sight.
“What in the karking hel…” It must have been nothing, maybe it was just his head tricking him, maybe someone had stuck something in his rations. It must have been his imagination. Candorick walked back to his bed, scanning the room for any signs of the door.
“How are you doing Candorick?” Candorick turned around. It was Keating. Bogra followed close behind.
“Will you karking just leave me alone Keating! You’re not helping!” Candorick yelled.
“Candorick, we’ve all lost someone important to us.” Keating said.
Bogra sat next to Candorick, his bed creaking and snapping due to Bogra’s massive frame.
Bogra pulled out the large mining helmet he always kept on the side of his pack.
“I spent my years as a baby Ogryn on Morlax… Mortac… Mornax, it was mining planet, yes? Me papa worked in the mines, mining ores for the Emprah’. One day I felt big earthquake, like when big Ogryn step. That night me papa didn’t come home. Papa never came home. He was jolly fellow, always tell funny jokes. Big beard, it pretty gray. He look like he eat lot’s a sweets. Mama give me helmet. Said it belonged to papa. Told me to take it with me for the good luck. I miss mama and papa…”
“But I move on.” Bogra placed the helmet back on the side of his pack. “It what mama and papa would have wanted.”
Keating sat next to Candorick.
“You’re not alone Candorick. Remember that.” Keating threw a small bottle at Candorick. “Catch!”
Candorick caught the bottle. It had no discernible markings on it, and it looked like the cap had been tied on by hand. A green liquid rested inside.
“What’s this?” Candorick asked.
“Little thing my mom taught me to make. Told me it would help me if my nightmares ever got to bad. Thought it might help you.” Keating said.
“So you are asking me to just drink this random liquid you just gave me? You think I’m karking stupid?” Candorick replied, attempting to hand the bottle back to Keating.
“I don’t, that’s why I asked Bogra to come with me. He is watching me give it to you. He promised to tell anyone if that you did this.” Keating said, calling Bogra over. “Tell him what you’ll do if something happens to you.”
Bogra walked over. “I’ll tell the important people the sparkhead’ gave vial of poison to the boss.”
“Nobodies forcing you to take it. It’s just, food for thought.” Keating said as he pushed the vial back into Candorick’s chest.
“How does it work?” Candorick asked.
“Hel if I know.” Keating replied. “From my personal experience, it stops a lot of the ‘creative liberties’ your brain makes when dreaming, meaning your nightmares should be a lot less potent.”
“If you are planning on taking it, do it right before bed, to ensure it doesn’t wear off before you wake up.”
Candorick looked at the vial. Surely it wouldn’t work, how could a drink do that?
But he couldn’t take it anymore. The lack of the sleep, the horrible nightmares, he was willing to do anything to make them stop. Even if it was drink a vial full of suspicious liquid given to him by a witch.
He had better not been lying.

2023.06.06 05:11 Significant_Neat_689 AAI is way better than AAI2

Gonna write a 10-page essay for 2 comments and a 33% upvote rate but whatever
It's true.
The Ace Attorney fanbase is generally more analytically intelligent than most other visual novel fanbases, so it's very disappointing to see so many people lulled by AAI2's cheap parlor tricks while failing to grasp the beauty of AAI. Truly the biggest L for this subreddit.
Let's start with the overarching story: AAI is about an international smuggling ring, and AAI2 is about a man who tricks people into committing murder. That alone should dictate which game is better, but everyone seems to love Simon Keyes because of how random and unpredictable the twist was. I fail to see why the smuggling ring is so slept-on; perhaps it's too realistic or down-to-earth and the community would rather have a final villain plotting to steal the moon? But more on that later.
AAI has the biggest cases of "Seinfield is unfunny" in the series, because AAI2 is an unofficial translation and thus more accessible to people. On the other hand, AAI is only available as a DS cartridge (rather expensive), the only game not available on the 3DS eshop or Steam. Of course most people played AAI2 before AAI. SO MANY things got ruined by AAI2. I honestly think this is one of the reasons AAI2 did not get a localization.
Let's see some of the highlights:
The Great Thief Yagatarasu - Hit the hardest by this. Kay Faraday parading around the fact that she is the Yagatarasu in AAI2 is vastly different from her doing the same in Kidnapped and Ablaze. In AAI, starting from the first case, the Yagatarasu is this mysterious thief that supposedly has a lot of intel on the smuggling ring and we only get to see his silhouette and calling card. And don't forget his theme, Yagatarasu - The Gentleman Thief, which really does set the mood and fit him perfectly during the fleeting moments it plays. Kay only pretended to be the thief in two cases. I think the scarcity of the Yagatarasu appearances is what really makes the reveal so intriguing.
Yeah, and the final reveal: be honest here. The twist of it being Byrne, Calisto and Badd would have hit much harder on everyone's first playthrough of AAI without knowing anything from AAI2. What really dampens the Yatagarasu is the fact that he is brought up too many times by Kay in AAI2 (and even just her soundtrack name). Also the fact that the Yagatarasu calling card is the inverted version of the smuggling ring leader's instruction cards, to send a message that the Yagatarasu was only a few steps behind the ringleader, was absolutely brilliant and a much better last-minute twist than anything else the series ever came up with.
Calisto Yew/Shih-na - She was with Lang for his first appearance, and every consecutive one. That's what made her reveal so impactful. After AAI2 came along, she was just another one-off character. To be honest, the twist that she was Calisto Yew was completely unexpected, although maybe I should have realized beforehand. I also think the way she is finally cornered is pretty awesome. Setting alight the coat to reveal the Bahbalese ink burning green, pretty symbolic of her smuggling acts finally brought to light.
Shi-Long Lang character development - I'm surprised how no one mentions this. It's on the same level as Sebastian's development, and I think the only reason it's so slept-on is because in AAI2, the cases are normally so dull that you have no other choice but to focus on the characters, while AAI Lang shares the stage with the rest of the plot. The way he goes from respectfully hating on prosecutors as a super serious officer to "Lang Zi says: ...just go already!" and supporting Edgeworth in his trial after the credits is super awesome. Him getting fired from Interpol is worse than Yuri Cosmos getting demoted after Turnabout For Tomorrow in terms of discomfort food. I feel like the way Lang is introduced in AAI2 really does discredit all his character development in AAI.
Now let's compare all aspects of each game:
Case 1 (general): Visitor > Target. Visitor is the most underrated case in the series, and Target is a 3-hour long snooze-fest. Target is a case 1 yet fails to be an intro case and thus is not good, that's what it boils down to.
Case 1 (witnesses): Visitor == Target. Visitor brought back Maggey who is one of the blandest characters in the series, but Target's defendant wasn't any better. Target also managed to fumble de Killer's appearance into a very boring confrontation, so they are about tied.
Case 1 (culprit, single-case): Portsman > Knightley. The prosecutorial interactions were much more fun than that overconfident bodyguard.
Example --
Portsman: It's a possibility. Maybe your salary's been cut so much that life is getting a little too rough to handle...?
Gumshoe: I'll have you know that I eat three square meals every day, pal! ...OK, so all three of them happen to be instant noodles, but...
Portsman: Poor thing. What an evil prosecutor you were paired up with. And what a motive, no?
Case 1 (culprit, whole game): Knightley > Portsman. Sure. The case 1 culprit can have a huge impact on the overarching story. Knightley was one of the better plotwise characters of AAI2.
Case 2 (general): Airlines > Imprisoned. Airlines just edges out Imprisoned slightly, but I admit Imprisoned is the only AAI2 case that deserves all the praise it gets. But I think the twists and turns were just a bit better for Airlines, especially the final Logic flashback segment as Lablanc slowly fell over the railing.
Case 2 (witnesses): Airlines > Imprisoned. Zinc Lablanc carries the entire case, like Luke Atmey did. Rhoda Teneiro was also cool. Jay Elbird and Frank Sahwit can't compare, and even Keyes' performance in this case, even knowing that he manipulated Knightley's death, doesn't quite reach Airlines' level of beautiful simplicity here. Dogen was just a plot device in this episode.
Case 2 (culprit, single-case): Meele == Roland. Both had godawful motives and mild characters.
Case 2 (culprit, whole game): Roland > Meele. Of course, because Roland got a whole other backstory while Meele stayed the same.
Case 3 (general): Inherited > Kidnapped. Yeah, alright. Who knew that letting you play as Gregory Edgeworth in the events leading up to DL-6 would be more interesting for the audience than actually coming up with an original idea? F for effort, I guess.
Case 3 (witnesses): Inherited > Kidnapped. Mainly because Ema Skye was absolutely useless in Kidnapped. Lauren Paups was also pretty bad. Inherited only had some meh witnesses, nothing outstanding, but still better than Kidnapped.
Case 3 (culprit, single-case): Gustavia > Lance. Well, yeah. Lance did kill only in self defense, while Gustavia and Dover had a whole storyline going. I feel like Kidnapped was meant to be a breath of fresh air from the constant murder grind, like Stolen. Too bad neither case ended up being great.
Case 3 (culprit, whole game): Lance > Gustavia. Well, not quite Lance himself, but the effect it had by prompting Ernest Amano to forge evidence, get caught and questioned, and give up the evidence to the KG-8 incident was pretty impactful. Gustavia, while the first of many things that ticked off Keyes, was also the only part of his story that wasn't really carefully intertwined with anything else.
Case 4 (general): Reminiscence == Forgotten. Interestingly, the one case everyone seems to like in AAI is actually not that great, all things considered. Forgotten was a very slow case with boring investigation sequences all around, but Reminiscence had terrible character interactions and was paced horribly.
Case 4 (witnesses): Reminiscence > Forgotten. Detective Badd blows everyone else out of the water. The Judge was alright, and Gumshoe was pretty subpar. But still, better than whatever AAI2 was trying to do with Lotta Hart and Nicole Swift.
Case 4 (culprit, single-case): Calisto == Blaise. I can't really say one was better than the other. Calisto's double murder and escape managed to top the previous 3-4 for "best loose end", but Blaise was no slouch either.
Case 4 (culprit, whole game): Calisto > Blaise. Doesn't need an explanation.
Now for the opinion that will get me downvoted. Turnabout Ablaze is a better case than The Grand Turnabout, both as a finale and in general.
Firstly, Colias Palaeno was a better final plot device character than John Marsh. Palaeno was introduced as this very suspicious character, only to later become the most helpful witness in the entire series, and the only person who didn't lie, ever. Despite overdoing his coupon-dealing gimmick, it never really got old or tedious. And come on, he was just a cool guy all around. His interactions with Alba were also very interesting considering the history between their countries. Palaeno is the perfect example of how to write a compelling plot device character.
On the other hand, John Marsh never really made an impact and his edgy teenager persona was just meh. Him refusing to take revenge on Dogen in the end was cool, but he was still not as good a character overall. His kidnapping was mainly to develop Courtney's character, but even she was not that interesting in the end. And his twist of being the president's son was very underwhelming, if I'm being honest.
Every case 5 is traditionally the resolution of two different murders. For AAI, it was Ka-Shi Nou murdered in the Allebahstian embassy, and Manny Coachen murdered in the Bahbalese embassy on the same night. For AAI2, it was the body double's murder out of the blue and the real president's murder 12 years ago. Surely Ablaze has a much better premise already.
Ablaze is a very symmetrical, well-organized case with the themes of duality. Allebahst has strict migration laws and an old army general as the ambassador, who appears to be a kindly old man. Bahbal is a very lax tourist country with a young advertising ambassador who is suspiciously cheerful. And yet, Ambassador Alba is the villain behind the smuggling ring while Ambassador Palaeno is hopelessly clueless about his secretary Coachen. I really like the dynamic amongst the characters here. Even Coachen gets characterization from Palaeno's relationship with him and sadness at his death.
Honestly, I thought the premise of the country split in two was a very intriguing setup. Even for people who aren't super interested in history-esque topics, the case should provide a novel setting. The competition to see which embassy had the legitimate statue, the goodwill ambassadorship involving the Steel Samurai, the reuniting of Cohdopia, everything really felt like something big and exciting was happening.
How many people actually played Ablaze fully? I bet half the people who hate on Turnabout Ablaze here don't even know that the embassy was set on fire in the case. They only watched Alba's breakdown, went on the wiki to find out the two victims, and called it a day before formulating their opinion. They missed out on everything, like the safe-opening puzzle and the secret of the Yagatasaru key/"knife", and figuring out how the two statues and the body got transported between the embassies.
Unlike Ablaze's very uniform and straightforward setup, The Grand Turnabout is just a speed-rap of a case with very sporadic events that feel like it's just thrown at you randomly so you never get bored of one single topic. So right after exposing Blaise as the killer, you find the president of Zheng Fa is murdered. You go to question someone, but she is currently judging Roland's trial for the murder of Knightley. Then Blaise turns out to not get in any trouble for what happened in Forgotten. Then Marsh gets kidnapped and you decide to join the trial and help Sebastian. He then runs away and you stall for time until Marsh is found and Sebastian comes back and proves that Blaise tampered with evidence. So he gets arrested after all and Roland is guilty. Then you get a mysterious radio call telling you to go to an orphanage, where you find out that the real president (along with some other guy) was killed there 12 years ago. With a very tedious Little Thief investigation sequence. Now you trace back who called you on the radio and pin every single crime in the game onto him. And Dogen helped, a bit. The end.
There were zero compelling aspects of the case. It feels like the case was entirely written to showcase character development for half the cast, and the actual plot points are half-assed and not bothered with. The final reveal is just a cheap cop-out by going "oh actually A and B are connected. Wow!". I feel like The Grand Turnabout is actually the worst-written case of AAI2 in terms of sheer writing. Every event is random until the final reveal. The way the events proceed is also very weird and feels very unpolished. The investigation drags on way longer than Alba's confrontation does. No way people like this mess of a case more than Ablaze just because it has more rewarding/overstimulating moments at times and uses shock value.
It's funny that AAI has the overarching plot be straightforward and each individual case have its twists and turns, while AAI2 is the exact opposite. Each case basically feels like the game just leads you along a long, drawn-out and boring path to the answer while the actual overarching plot is this convoluted, improbable steaming mess of a story.
I really don't think Keyes was all that special. Sure, there were minute hints scattered throughout the game before he is revealed to be the mastermind. Sure, he had a compelling motive. But in the end, it all boils down to "oh remember all that? well, the major twist is that they are connected!". Just a weak cop-out finale that manages to be flashy enough to woo half the audience. But what I really dislike about Keyes is the way he was caught. I personally think that final villains should try to not get caught. Keyes was so cocky that he was toying with Edgeworth on purpose. Kidnapping Kay and John, teasing Edgeworth over the radio, he basically flew too close to the sun and paid the price. Alba, on the other hand, wanted nothing to do with Edgeworth or the rest of the cast.
I think half of what makes a compelling villain is how they try to avoid being caught. Alba managed to stay low and avoid detection for 10 years, while still running the smuggling ring. His confrontations felt very calm and collected, and just overall very professional at maintaining his innocence. Unlike Keyes who just keeps laughing at you and mocking you. Sure, both characters had high egos, but bottom line: Keyes got too cocky from a few successful manipulations while Alba maintained his confidence in his position which he has decades of experience in.
Yes, Alba was very stubborn and makes the final fight drag on, but that should be a good thing for his character. Shows he is very experienced and well-prepared for law enforcement. Honestly, my one complaint is that his fight didn't drag on even longer; I think that him losing his ambassadorship was a bit too easy and he should have put up more of a fight regarding that. People say Alba was too generically evil, but I think that he is actually unique in the way that he is the first pure villain as afinal villain. Remember, von Karma and Gant were not full-time criminals; they were law enforcement who killed once and then were caught trying to cover up their crime. Engarde was an actor who only cared about publicity. Godot was, well, not exactly a criminal. Gavin was a lawyer who did anything to win his case and held grudges. Up until then, we never had a professional criminal as a final villain until Alba. Taking someone like him down should be expected to be difficult, long and tedious. Also his breakdown was much more rewarding than Keyes' getting beat up by animals, mostly because Keyes kinda deserved more than that. If Keyes had been punished harder, his breakdown might have been more satisfying than Alba's, to be fair.
AAI also has a better soundtrack than AAI2, and you can fight me on that. AAI2 may have some earwormy tracks, but it's like this: AAIs soundtrack actually sounds like it was composed for the game. Tracks like the Yagatarasu's theme (not Kay, the actual Yagatarasu) and Torn Apart Countries fit the mood and set the grandiose atmosphere perfectly. AAI2s soundtrack is just the artist taking a picture of the character, showing it to a composer, and going "make a theme for him". The Man Who Masterminds the Game may be more catchy than The Enemy Who Surpasses the Law, but the latter definitely suits its respective character and confrontation as a whole more. And I just gotta appreciate a fitting theme more than an earwormy one.
Honestly, Objection 2009 was better than Objection 2011 just because it felt so much more satisfying in a calm, procedural manner, like "Okay, so we figured this out. Make a mental note of this for later". Objection 2011 is a TV-show opening for Edgeworth. It might be very catchy, but I honestly think it doesn't fit a single moment in which it is played and is just an overstimulation.
Also I will get ostracized for saying this, but Lying Coldly was a perfect take on how a pursuit theme for Edgeworth would sound, that Wanting to Find the Truth completely ruined in favor of sounding more like a generic pursuit theme. It may be a good song, but it has none of the charm that Lying Coldly had.
AAI2s translation team, to be honest, did a pretty bad job. (Preface: yes I know criticism like this is mean and uncalled for but since AAI2 isn't even their game, I think it is fair to criticize their take on it after they imposed themselves onto Capcom's game.)
Let's start with the voicelines. Sebastian Debeste's voice actor was the only one who did a good job. Everyone else's voices were way too "high-quality sound" to fit AAs theme. Like, especially ProZDs take on Gregory Edgeworth, who sounds like a 20 year old with a smoking problem and a mouth that's 2cm in diameter. It especially contrasts von Karma's voice in Inherited and is clearly out of place. Sorry, but ProZD was an absolute garbage casting choice for Gregory. I don't care what you say, Courtney is not British. Knightley and Shields' voices are just too realistic and not AA sounding. Keyes and Blaise are the only other objections that almost fit the bill, almost.
Again, though, massive props to Sebastian's voice actor. He absolutely nailed his voiceclip.
On a related note, I think Alba and Calisto's objections are actually not bad because remember, they are (Alba definitely, Calisto I assume so since she works for him) foreigners who originate from Cohdopia. It makes sense for them to have an accent when speaking English, and with only one word to go off of, their accent sounds exactly like one would expect. It's surprising how most people can't make that basic connection and instead go straight to mindless hating. Ace Attorney's fanbase is supposed to be smarter than that.
Okay now back to the translation team, the overall dialogue for AAI2 feels much more dry. It's not as easy as you'd expect to capture the tones of each character during the translation, and the translation team kind of failed at that. The dialogue for the returning characters, especially Gumshoe and Kay, feel much more uniform and really lack the charm that AAIs official translation had. Try playing AAI and AAI2 in alternating cases side-by-side and the difference becomes clear as day.
Not just the dialogue in general, but also the quips and banter during the investigation sequences between main characters. Especially that one time in Inherited in which young Shields quotes Godot's "blacker than a moonless night" soliloque, for Gregory to think to himself "note: coffee has a bad effect on lawyers". If you really think about it, this took place before T&T and there is no way Godot would just quote Shields, so it's a really weird continuity plothole that both people say the same thing, like a 4th wall break. It's supposed to be a joke, but come on. Capcom wouldn't actually do something so unprofessional like that, and the translation team really had to make that weird joke a permanent part of Capcom's game. It's an official game so it's supposed to be more professional than using 4th wall breaks like that. This may seem nitpicky, but again - official Capcom game.
Of course, people can like whatever they like. You may prefer a culprit that is over-the-top crazy more than a down-to-Earth one. You can like an unpredictable, convoluted overarching story more than a well-written one. But objectively, from a critical, unbiased point of view, Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth is a much better-written, higher quality work than Gyakuten Kenji 2. No amount of rose-colored glasses can change that, sorry.

2023.06.06 05:10 Fun_Professional_424 Keeping Save File and Moving from Preloaded to Dynamic version

So I've been playing Infinite Fusion for a little over a couple of weeks now (on and off) and I just realized there were two different versions of the game. I'm pretty sure I'm playing the Preloaded version since none of the custom fusion sprites I had to manually download have the name of the creator of said sprite. If I decide to switch over to the Dynamic version, does my save file transfer over? I would hate to have to start over after getting so far already.

2023.06.06 05:10 CitizenDolan Mom stopped talking to me

This goes back a few months now. In mid March I was pretty busy with work and didn't text my mom for about a week or so. (She didn't text me either) towards the end of March I started to get very short or no responses when I would text her. She was invited to come to my significant others parents for Easter and she decided she didn't want to go. When I texted her on Easter she didn't text me back until way later in the day and just sent an emoji of an egg and a heart. Tried texting her again and got very little short responses. Finally in late April she texted me telling me she couldn't get onto Amazon and needed my help logging in. I helped her out and used the opportunity to talk to her and tried to have a conversation with her, she was finally acting "normal" and I assumed whatever she was mad about was either in my head or she had gotten over it. About a week later I ask her if she wanted to get lunch for Mother's day and she proceeded to tell me she does not need an obligatory Mother's day lunch and my absence has broken her heart. I told her "alrighty, well if you change your mind, let me know" Mother's Day came, I texted her Happy Mothers day and told her I loved her, no response.
My parents divorced when I was young and both of them have narc tendencies. I have come to terms with the fact I never had real parents and I am at peace with it and honestly I am totally ok with not talking to my mom as I am done with her Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde personality. The thing is, my very sweet grandma, who is the farthest thing from a narcissist is 94 and I don't know how much time she has left, her and I are pretty close, have very similar personalities and have bonded over the years as we have both had to deal with my mom's immaturity as we both have had essential be parents to my mom. I want to see my grandma but my mom is taking care of her and I know she will be at my grandma's house if I go and see her. I need a way to smooth things over but at the same time I can't bring myself to apologize to my mom as I havent done anything wrong and more importantly I don't want to feed her Nsupply. Any suggestions?

2023.06.06 05:08 r00kss Looking for an online/text friend

What's good? I guess this is the part where I talk about myself and my lack of friends. If you like nonfiction novels, you're in for a treat with this post.
I'm 33 and live in southern California. I'm not really the social/hang out and do things all the time type. I'm a homebody, always have been. Usually only going out when my partner drags me 'kicking and screaming' out of the house. Everything with Covid exasperated my antisocial tendencies, to say the least. So I typically only socialize with my coworkers and our clients. I don't crave physical interactions with people, the feeling of it being a requirement to make plans with people is not something I enjoy very much.
I'm here to find an online friend or two. I've been with my partner for 5yrs, literally only looking for a friend. Proud member of the LGBTQ+ community as well. Time zone wise, probably best if you're here in the states.
I'm pretty sarcastic and make self deprecating jokes on a regular basis. My sense of humor can be a little messed up, and I'll probably complain about a lot of things. The plus side to that is that I'm always down for a good vent sesh or good ol' trash talking. I have a lot of interests, but not many hobbies. But I do know how to sew. My latest vest has 15 patches on it that I stitched by hand. I have a collection of puppy teeth and I don't care how weird people think that is. I have a few good tattoos and a few not so good ones. I have 12 piercings, had 13, but that's a story for when I want to laugh at how dumb I am sometimes. I've been working with dogs for over 12yrs, which keeps me pretty active. We have a dog and a cat. Definitely more of an animal person than a people person. I'm a vegetarian. Not religious at all. I'm a product of divorce, shout out to all the single parents. I'm the oldest of my siblings, and that is why I don't have an spawns of my own.
I can eat my body weight in pizza, enchiladas, and hot cheetos. The more painful the hot sauce, the more I like it. Coffee before anything else in the morning is a must. I day drink on my days off so I can't be called into work, that's probably not healthy.... But it makes doing the laundry and dishes more bearable.
I prefer true crime documentaries and trashy reality TV due to the lack of plot and the ability to decompress after a stressful day at work by talking endless trash on the horrible people that go on those shows because they're perfectly content with showing the whole world that they are indeed horrible people. I don't play video games and you'll only catch me on a hiking trail if I was murdered and that was where my body was dumped.
I mostly listen to metal, but you'll still find me listening to early 2000s pop punk, emo, and screamo. Shows are fun, but I deal with chronic pain now that I'm older and I try to avoid the things that are going to remind me of my reality. Mosh pits make me hurt too much now.
Oh, and because my partner says it's "terrifying", I have 6 Capricorn placements in my chart and my Mars is in Sagittarius. with that what you will.
If you've made it this far and don't find me as abrasive as most people do, shoot. I'll be straight up with you if I'm not liking the vibe. I mooooosssstttt likely have cptsd, so if something feels off in my gut, I'm not down. Sorry.
But don't DM with a single word or standalone sentence. Give me something to actually respond to that has more substance than the interaction you'd have with the barista making your overpriced beverage.

2023.06.06 05:08 dorkless INFP or ENFP?

Hello, I am very confused to whether I am an INFP or ENFP. I seem to test about 70:30 in favour of INFP. I’ve read into cognitive functions but not sure if I relate more to dominant Fi or Ne or inferior Te or Si. I should say I am diagnosed with ADD and have some social anxiety as well
Some traits: - I love learning and going down the rabbit hole learning everything and anything about a subject. This is my favourite thing to do - I enjoy meeting new people in the right setting. I am more talkative than introverts although will be quiet around more extroverted people - however I would say I am reserved and need to suss people out before a deep friendship (although am very open with my friends - oversharer). I like having a lots of acquaintances and some very close friends (mixture of group and 1:1 activites) - I am very conflict averse, people pleaser - get bored easily - I think a lot about social dynamics between people I know and enjoy talking about that - very indecisive - unorganised, room is always a mess - horrible at self care - my memory is horrible and I often forget important things I am meant to do - struggle with follow through. Long projects are my bane, tend to work best in fast paced environments better and stress switches my brain on. Not a consistent worker and tend to go through peaks and troughs of motivation - when I get stressed, making a plan, cleaning my desk and talking through problems with people I trust helps me a lot - love change in some settings (eg starting a new job, moving to a new city) but can get apprehensive/anxious with new things eg exploring an unsafe part of a city - very sentimental - hate talking in front of large crowds and being forced into the spotlight - indecisive, tend to just order the same thing at restaurants once I’ve found something I like - I can be ambitious and competitive (very in school) although has dwindled a bit, did very well in school, “high achiever” - creative, love doing art. Enjoy the creative aspects of my job the most (I am a scientist)
I don’t relate to the high moral standpoint of the INFP. I don’t have strong opinions on topics and am very indecisive. compared to others I am very tough towards criticism and little offends me. Also am a very positive person. However I would say growing up however I was very sensitive and introverted.
I don’t relate to the high energy ENFP stereotype. I oscillate between high and low energy, it takes the right people or going down a rabbit hole to get me to high energy. I am mostly low energy. I also don’t relate to the “mind brimming with ideas” stereotype because again I am pretty low energy
Would appreciate any guidance from anyone!!

2023.06.06 05:04 its_NBD Using ChatGPT for bed time stories

My 3.5 y/o is getting pretty sick and tired of the same recycled bullshit bed time stories I tell her. She straight up calls me out too. I can't say I blame her. I've got a pretty colorful imagination but unfortunately, I can't use it to come up with age appropriate stories. So I resort to the same books or tired versions of the 3 Little Pigs.
Enter ChatGPT. Example. Ask it to tell you a bed time story about a princess named Lilly, her pet dragon, and Kool & The Gang. And out comes a whimsical and groovy tale that's always a home run with my kid. She's even been giving me ideas of characters lately. So, If you're looking to spice things up in the fairytale department without using your last remaining brain cells, get on ChatGPT.
Sweet dreams.

2023.06.06 05:04 lazerlike42 Question about sugars going "low" with metformin only

I was diagnosed in February with an a1c of 9.1 and random sugars at 225 which would spike to 400 or so. I started an extremely intensive exercise regimen and cut out most carbs and numbers started acting more normal as long as I avoided carbs. I could have a carby meal once a week or so but if I strung them together the numbers would be a bit higher for several days. In May they did my first official a1c after diagnosis and it was 5.4, which was in line with the 5.7 home test I'd done and following the trend of the 7.1 home test I'd done 1.5 months in.
I lost a lot of weight - around 50 pounds - and gradually introduced more normal carbs back into my diet, but in moderation. I've also reduced my exercise to a more normal daily regimen of an hour or so on a bike (I was doing 3 or 4 hours a day for a while). Suddenly this week I am finding my numbers dropping pretty substantially - even to a point that would usually be considered too low - when eating, even carby meals.
A few days ago I had a Chinese buffet then burgers and fries with two regular (not keto) buns and tonight again fries and sandwiches with regular buns. That's after a regular English muffin breakfast sandwich this morning and another this afternoon.
(Your first reaction may be, "what the heck is a diabetic eating like that for?" to which I'd respond, "yeah, fair question!" The short answer is that the buffet was a treat for my kids, and everything else that followed was bascially unusual set of circumstances this week [end of school-year stuff at work for one thing] which I took advantage of to "test" my reaction after seeing what happened with the buffet).
The point is I have been getting numbers in the 70s this week after eating these things and tonight checking a few hours after the sandwiches and fries I was at 66.
I'm ONLY on metformin - no insulin supplementation or anything else. I have been told metformin would not cause lows but am starting to get a little concerned and am unsure how to proceed.
I will likely ask the doctor about this, but I'm looking here for any feedback from others who have had similar experiences with seeing their numbers/function return to a more normal state. When I had the 5.4 a1c I had already tried asking the doctor if there was anything to watch out for in terms of possible "ill effects" from the metformin if my system was starting to operate in a better manner on its own, but she didn't really have much of an answer. Based on what she (and others there) have said I don't think the hospital/practice have much experience of people getting things so well under control.

2023.06.06 05:04 United_Cow_9719 My boyfriend randomly sent me some appreciation money 🫶🏻

My boyfriend randomly sent me some appreciation money 🫶🏻
He works 10 hour days and overtime, I usually only work ~30 hours a week, and therefore I do the housework so he doesn't have to. (He never asked this of me but I like to help out and think it's only fair.) This dynamic works pretty well for us and I don't even think anything of it, it's just "doing my share" in mind, since he pays our mortgage and most of the bills. Seeing this pop up randomly just made my whole week, I felt all giddy inside like a little kid. 🥰 A little appreciation goes a long way. ❤️

2023.06.06 05:03 Blubberman2000 Some easily overlooked/missed details ( Might contain spoilers ) Part 1.

1. Mihawk might have the ability to literally see very far: Real life hawks are known to see things from a 100 feet away very clearly. There are little clues that suggest Mihawk might be capable of a similar feat. He was able to follow Kreig all the way to the east blue, he also saw Shanks camping on that island, then finally on Marineford he said he wanted to test the real distance between him and whitebeard who appears to be standing right in front of him.
2. The power of the yonko were revealed before they were formally introduced: Rockstar was a 94 million bounty head. This means Shanks had an errand boy who is as notorious as Franky Shogun after Dressrosa.
3. Buggy might be hiding a serious potential: He was a kid fighting against grown men in the roughest sea imaginable. Not just ordinary men either but the cream of the crop in the pirate business. He was different from Momo or Hiyori because he was a pirate apprentice, they are left to fend for themselves. His latest feat on chapter 1082 really reinforces this idea.
4. If the strawhats were on the Marineford war, they'd be the weakest crew in there.
5. Law doubted Drake from the very beginning. In their debut on Saboady, Drake stepped in between Killer and the Mad monk saying that if they want to fight each other they should do it in the New world. But Law's response to that was very interesting, he asked Drake how many men have he killed.
This didn't make much sense back then but after the reveal of Drake being a spy in 956 and adding the information that Law looked up to a double agent in his younger days, it would all fall into place.
6. Garp's nameless attack is as strong as Luffy's Elephant Gun. You might actually even argue that theyre stronger because when Garp fought Chinjao he was in his prime unlike when he fought Luffy.

2023.06.06 05:03 lr0nman_dies_Endgame Avoided my very own I don’t work here situation and got vastly different reactions

I’ve read plenty of stories from this subreddit over the years. Because of that, the first thing I ask if I need help at a store and there’s someone that fits the description of employee is, “Excuse me, do you work here?” It was this very thing that caused the following situation at the grocery store.
Shoplifting is pretty bad at this store so the commonly stolen medicines are locked in a cabinet. One of the medicines I needed was in the cabinet so I went off to find an employee. I spot someone stocking beverages in the drinks aisle so I approach and ask if he works here. The guy ignores me so I ask again as I walked a little closer to him, but he brushes me off again. Finally I’m pretty much 5 feet away from him and I ask again to which he starts stumbling his words. This poor guy probably thought he’s about to have a story for this sub, but when he tells me that he works for a company that stocks the drinks I apologize for bothering him and wish him a good day. Simple as that. That’s how all IDWHL situations should go (but then we wouldn’t have fun/wholesome stories for this sub).
Story is not over yet though! Eventually I find someone else that fits the description of employee and I ask if they work here. They give me a very stern, “No”, and give me a funny look before laughing and saying, “I’m just playing. Of course I do. What do you need?” They helped me get my medicine and that was that. Just a interesting day at the grocery store. Always remember to be kind and understanding of employees.

2023.06.06 05:00 benziekell I (22F) am struggling with coming out of the “puppy love phase” with my boyfriend (26M)

My (22F) boyfriend (26M) and I have been together for about a year now. Our relationship has been great, and still is great. We have never really fought; we’ve had plenty of moments where we had to have discussions about serious topics but we never fight or get angry. We’re pretty opposite in every sense of the word and balance each other well because of it, so its been easy for us to just talk any time something like that comes up. As of recently, I feel like we’ve been coming out of the puppy dog phase, which i obviously anticipated happening at some point, but I’m having a hard time trying to navigate this. This has been my first healthy, adult relationship so all of this in general has been very new for me anyways. Since we’re opposite, it’s been some hard work to learn each others love languages. All this to say, I have no doubt that this is something we can get passed and work through. For me though, I keep getting in my head about this phase ending, just because it just feels so off. Every little thing he’s been doing I have been reading too much into. For someone who has bad anxiety, it’s hard to tell when something is a gut feeling or me over thinking something. Please tell me I’m not the only one who has gone through these feelings and what would you say is a good way to help him understand where I’m coming from without trying to micromanage everything in the relationship? What are some ways or exercises to get comfortable with this weird transitional period? (I hope this makes sense lol. Also pls be nice I’m sensitive)

2023.06.06 04:57 BloodDragonSniper Mods are Drunk

Why are reddit owners such a bunch of greedy bastards?
Good question! I wish I knew.
Sup shitlords!
I bet you've heard, that reddit is trying to kill of 3rd party apps!
Why, is obvious to everyone. In case it isn't, here's a short documentary.
Seriously though, this article: The ‘Enshittification’ of TikTok, just replace "tiktok" with "reddit" and you get the idea.
Why should you care? honestly, I don't know, but I know why I care. Because the new reddit website and app suck massive balls. No really, have you tried it? If you don't see nothing wrong, go download RiF or something and then use reddit for a bit and try to go back. It's fucking awful.
Maybe I'm just a boomer and I like my websites information dense with everything on display with intuitive UI elements AND NO FUCKING NATIVE ADVERTISING are you fucking kidding me? EVERY 2ND POST IS A FUCKING AD. Holy balls.
UBlock Origin and 3rd party mobile apps are the only thing keeping me from going insane when using this website, and in that way it's actually pretty enjoyable. Without that, it's fucking garbage.
But how are they supposed to make money then reeeeeeeeeee
First off, stop sucking corporate cock. I'm sure they'll be just fine, with us being the product and all. Second, I know everyone hates mods and We Do It FoR fReE but that's exactly it. The fact that I'm not massively inconvenienced while trying to write this is the reason why I'm writing it at all. And considering that the whole website runs on basically volunteer labour with admins seemingly existing only to hand out half-ass suspensions and to yell at us that the beatings will continue until morale improves, pissing off the power-users that make the whole place work seems like a really bad thing.
Not to mention, in the push to make the website increasingly "advertiser friendly" it's losing the "wild west internet" charm. Mark my words, once reddit IPOs half of the subreddits will fucking disappear. I call it The Addening. Censorship will increase under the ever growing threat of advertisers pulling out of reddit. I assume. I hope not, but cmon we've seen what happened before, they come for the porn first and then for the memes. All so you will be marketed to.
Why am I writing all of this? basically to yell at a void, the only relevant information is:

This subreddit will be set to private for 48(ish) hours on the 12th of june.

That's it. it's like a protest or something to get reddit to notice and to postpone their half-assed attempts at over-monetisation for a little bit more till a decent alternative works itself out and then reddit can go eat shit and die, after being milked for any and all revenue it can be.
Good for you, literally. Also not a question
You are either very naive and ignorant, or have legitimate brain damage. seek further education/medical attention
I literally can't think of any more, sorry.
Class is over, everyone go home.

2023.06.06 04:55 halcylocke Elomi Matilda availability, need recommendations

Hello! I'm trying to find a bra that fits me better than the Cacique bras I've been wearing for way too long. I ordered a handful through Amazon's "Try Before You Buy" program and really liked how one of them fit me, but it was a touch too small in the band, and way too small in the cups.
I tried a 42E (which was the UK conversion for the Cacique bra I have now), but re-did my measurements and it put me at a 46G UK. It always overestimates the band size I need, and I'm pretty confident I need a 44, and the cup size increase seems about right based on how little I was able to scoop and swoop in the 42E.
I tried both the Cate and the Matilda and liked how the Matilda looked and felt a lot more, but I'm having a really hard time finding it in a 44GG to try - all of the websites I've looked at seem to have the same selection as Amazon, which is missing a lot of the larger band and cup sizes. The Cate is available for me to try, though.
If it helps, these were the measurements I got:
Loose Underbust: 48 Snug Underbust: 46 Tight Underbust: 44 Standing Bust: 54.5 Leaning Bust: 57 Lying Bust: 55.5
Here are a few pictures of the 42E Matilda fit:
There was a loooot to the sides that desperately wanted to be scooped in, but I was out of space. I would appreciate any recommendations for fits similar to the Matilda, where to find the Matilda, anything really!

2023.06.06 04:55 CozyLemonadeYT [Mega Thread] 2023 Virtual College Baseball Invitational: VCBI Preview

With about one more week until the 2023 VCBI, how about we give you a rundown of it.
This is a "virtual" tournament that takes the concept of a College Basketball Invitational, but for college baseball. I got this idea out of Quidster4040's Baseball NIT's. Games are simmed on Massey Ratings because i don't have a baseball game. (Maybe next year i'll get Super Mega Baseball 4).
The field has 16 teams, and 4 regionals. The winners of the 4 regionals go to the VCBI Series (basically formatted the same way as the College World Series). Since there's only 16 teams and not 64, there are no Super Regionals. Top top four regional hosts are who the NIBT Selection Committee announces as the first four out of the NIBT Tournament. This year, it was Elon, William & Mary, Stetson, and Utah Valley. The rest of the field was decided by me. Bids are determined by record and conference placement.
Here's the field:

Elon Regional:
#1 (1): Elon vs #4: North Florida
#2: Florida State vs #3: Gardner-Webb

Orem Regional:
#1 (4) Utah Valley vs #4: Little Rock
#2: Portland vs #3: Kansas

Williamsburg Regional:
#1 (2): William & Mary vs #4: Saint Louis
#2: Penn State vs #3: Bryant

DeLand Regional:
#1 (3): Stetson vs #4 Wagner
#2: Washington State vs #3 Memphis

LAST FOUR IN: Bryant, Memphis, Wagner, Saint Louis
FIRST FOUR OUT: Pittsburgh, Grambling State, Fairleigh Dickinson, UTRGV

2023.06.06 04:55 GrenchamReborn Dumb luck or hungry fish?

I’ve recently been trying to get back into fishing as a more frequent hobby now that I’m out of school and I’m moving to WA (which I’ve heard is pretty outdoorsy so I’d like to get into that), in the past I’ve done a little fishing here and there and I’ve basically always fished with pretty atypical bait compared to the guides I’ve seen, like most everything I’ve caught has been with little bits of cheese or beef sticks and the occasional random squishy maggot looking lure, like zero technique aside from kinda jigglin the rod here and there. My questions is: have I just been getting lucky or are those fish desperate? Also are there health concerns from letting the fish eat those sorts of things or any other reason I shouldn’t do that?

2023.06.06 04:54 HeadOfSpectre The Silver Baron - 5

July 7th Excerpt From the Journal of Violet Stone

I don’t remember much. Just the scenery flying by me as I ran from the train station. I didn’t see anyone chasing me. But I felt chased. I didn’t know what to think, what to feel, or even where the hell I was going. The only thing I felt was fear.

When I finally stopped, it was because I just couldn’t run any further. My lungs burned, begging me for air. So I ducked into an alley, trying to catch my breath, and organize my thoughts. The rain pounding down around me was too loud. The street was too quiet and every car that passed by sent another fresh jolt of terror through me as I replayed what had happened at the train station over and over again in my mind. The way that he’d fallen, the look on his face in the instant before he’d gone under the train. Oh God… I couldn’t get it out of my head! I couldn’t stop seeing it in my mind!

I wanted to go home, but was that even an option? How the hell does someone just go home after something like that? I couldn’t just waltz through the door like nothing was wrong! If Sam and Lisa didn’t notice, Rose sure as hell would and that assuming that the police weren’t already there. Someone could have recognized me! That Marilyn Monroe looking girl on the platform had gotten a good look at me. What if she told someone? It didn’t matter whether I’d meant to push the guy or not! It didn’t matter how much I’d fucking hated him at the time. He was dead. I was responsible. I’d pushed him. It was my fault.

‘I’ve just fucking killed a man!’

That thought… that reality didn’t feel real. It hadn’t truly hit me yet.

I’ve just fucking killed a man!’

I felt sick. If I actually had anything in my stomach, I might have even thrown up. Moving made me feel even worse, so I just stood there, letting the rain soak me to the bone, shaking from the horror and the cold while I tried to figure out what the hell I was going to do next. But all I could think about was the way he looked as the train went over him, and wondering if anything would have changed if I’d at least tried to grab him. Could I have caught him? Could I have saved him? What then? What would happen next? As far as I knew that motherfucker had murdered my goddamn parents! Should I really have even bothered trying to save him? Maybe I should have felt vindicated by all of this? Maybe this was some kind of justice, right? It sure as hell didn’t feel like justice. It’s not like I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that this had been the guy! There were doubts! There were a lot of fucking doubts!

I heard the sirens in the distance. But nobody came for me. I saw a police cruiser pass my alley. It didn’t stop for me, but it did make me think about my sweater. The goddamn sweater… it would probably be enough to identify me, right?

For a moment, I thought about turning myself in to the police. I mean, maybe once I told them that it was an accident, then maybe they’d be cool with it and let me go? I mean, the police are just known for being trustworthy and reasonable, right? What did I possibly have to worry about with them? I could just turn myself in and everything would be hunky fucking dory! ‘Oh, you just threw a man in front of a fucking subway train! Yeah, no big. Go home! Take a load off! Get some coffee! Try not to think about the man you just threw under a fucking subway train!’ Yes! Go to the police Violet! Great idea! And while you’re at it why don’t you do it in the fucking nude too? GREAT IDEA VIOLET! ALMOST AS GREAT AS THE TIME YOU THREW A MAN IN FRONT OF A FUCKING SUBWAY TRAIN! REMEMBER THAT?

I took off the sweater and abandoned it in the nearest dumpster. I hid it under some trash bags and hoped to God that nobody would ever find it, then, after standing in the rain like an idiot for several minutes with no idea on where to go next, I started walking home.

Nobody noticed me.

Nobody followed me.

The city was just… quiet. Not quiet, quiet. But nothing felt out of place. The world around me almost felt normal, and it was my own fault that the normalcy felt wrong somehow.
I entered my old bedroom through the fire escape, just like I used to back in high school when sneaking out at night to drink was the worst thing I’d ever done. I could hear people in the apartment, and I listened to see if any of the voices were unfamiliar. I heard Sam and Lisa talking over breakfast, and I could hear the TV. Nothing out of the ordinary. It satisfied me enough that I was safe. I locked my bedroom door and crawled into bed, pulling the covers over my head and listening to the rain and the voices outside. But I heard nothing out of the ordinary. It was like nothing had happened. Like it was all just a bad dream. Eventually, I fell asleep.

I stayed in bed until well after noon, staring up at the ceiling when I couldn’t sleep anymore. Sam and Lisa both left for work. I could hear Rose going around the house. She’d said that she had the day off, save for classes in the evening. She only bothered me once, though. Knocking on my door to check on me. I told her I was sick, and she didn’t pry. She didn’t sound suspicious. Just concerned.

I kept replaying what had happened at the subway station over and over again in my head. I couldn’t stop thinking about it and I couldn’t stop hating the quiet around me.

Sometimes, I wondered if it was just a bad dream. If maybe I’d never even left my room at all. Maybe I just wanted to believe that. It was better than thinking I’d just killed someone. There was a part of me that didn’t really seem to care. It still hadn’t fully hit me yet. After all, no one had come for me. So maybe it really was just a bad dream? Even if it hadn’t been, how had that man known who my Mom was? What about the things he’d said? Was it just a weird coincidence, or a horrible mistake? Maybe it was both.

I checked my phone when the afternoon began to slip into evening. The whole event was getting hazier in my mind. I was starting to convince myself it hadn’t happened. Lisa had messaged me, asking how I was feeling. Rose must’ve told her I was sick. I lied and said I was feeling a bit better, then I checked the news.

When I read the story I felt sick all over again. No name for my victim, no information at all. The man who’d gone under the train was just identified as ‘a man.’ That was it. Nothing else. There wasn’t even a picture of him.

There was however a picture of me… kinda.

It was blurry as hell. I tried to make out my own face amongst the black and white pixels but I couldn’t. It might have been me as I entered the station, although my hood was over my head, my hair was covered, and the only thing I could sort of identify was my lips, which aren’t exactly that distinct. Really, it could have been anyone in that picture. Anyone at all.

An unknown possible suspect’ It said under the picture. Followed by: ‘The suspect is believed to be male, approximately 6’2 and was last seen wearing a grey hoodie and jeans.’

They got the outfit right, and were only a little off with the height by two inches.

All in all… I can’t say that any of this really seemed damning to me. Although the idea that the police (or at least the news) had no idea who I was didn’t do a whole hell of a lot to calm me down. The idea of ‘getting away with it’ seemed just as bad as being caught.

For the second time that evening, I wondered about turning myself in to the police. I mean, this wasn’t exactly first degree murder. It was an accident! That had to be at least manslaughter, right? I mean, it was still a crime but it wasn’t first degree murder, right?

Christ… I was probably committing an even bigger crime by not coming forward! Why wasn’t I going to the nearest police station? What the hell was stopping me? Fear? Fear of what, consequences? You don’t fucking kill a man and not suffer any consequences! Even if it was an accident, there had to be some kind of consequence, right?

Was it justice? Assuming that this guy really had been the one who’d killed my parents all those years ago, did he really deserve to die like that? Thrown screaming under a train and… and…

God I didn’t even know if it was really the guy or not! It could have been anyone! He could’ve just randomly known my Mom and just so happened to look like her killer! It wasn’t even a perfect resemblance! I mean, fuck, how many fucking people in New York have blond hair, blue eyes and glasses? Thousands at least! Justice wasn’t a valid excuse! It just wasn’t!

I wanted to continue to lie there and stew, but I don’t know if that was really an option anymore. Slowly, I forced myself to get out of bed and head into the kitchen. I’d eaten nothing all day, which wasn’t all that healthy of a diet. As a further fuck you to my digestive system, I rummaged through the cupboard. There was a box of off brand pop tarts that I jammed them in the toaster for breakfast, if you could still call it that at five in the evening.

While I waited for my sugar enriched breakfast to ‘cook’ I raided the fridge for a drink. I found some OJ, and wandered into the living room. Rose had already left for class, but I knew Sam and Lisa would have been home soon.

When they did come home, they found me in the living room, under a blanket and finishing my shitty off brand pastries. Lisa fussed over me, like I knew she would. Sam just took over the TV and changed the channel to something other than the news.

I went to bed early last night, checking the news stories again on my phone before lying awake in bed. I might have slept a little. I couldn’t really say. I was just alone with my thoughts.

I’m not supposed to go back to Toronto for another day or so. But maybe I could leave early? Fuck off, leave all of this behind me and try to move on with my life? Sam and Lisa wouldn’t question it… much. That sounded like a horrible idea though. Just… fucking off, forgetting, pretending that this didn’t happen. It sounded like a mistake. Running away seemed like the exact kind of thing that would come back to bite me in the ass… and then what would I do? Was I supposed to just keep running from it? I knew in my gut that this would only ever make things worse. What would that do to Sam and Lisa? What would it do to Rose? I didn’t want to find out. I didn’t want to put them through that!

As I lay in bed a quiet resignation settled over me… and oddly enough, with it came a bit of peace. I guess even if no one else ever found out about what had happened at Prince Street, even if I took that secret to my grave, it would still gnaw at me. I’d still be looking over my shoulder, waiting for the day to come when it caught up with me. I didn’t want to deal with that. I didn’t want to put my family through that!

So I made a decision.

I don’t know if this will be my final entry or not.. I might not be coming back after this. Sam, Lisa, Rose… if any of you are reading this, I’m sorry. I swear to God, I didn’t mean for any of this to happen.

I’m going to go to the police in the morning and I’m going to turn myself in. So if this is it… well… goodbye.

I hope you don’t hate me too much.


Okay, so what the fuck?

I did the right thing! I turned myself in to the police! I was ready to go to jail over this!

Instead, I’m back in my old bedroom at Sam and Lisa’s and I’m 99.9% sure that I’m off the hook.

I went to the police station. I told them that I was there to confess and up until that point, things went as expected. They took me to an interrogation room and I waited for someone to come and talk to me. I was in there for about an hour, fidgeting aimlessly with my hands and waiting for some kind of judgment before someone finally bothered to show up.

The guy who walked through the door had a sort of ex military look to him. His eyes were intense and he had a muscular physique with a neatly trimmed goatee. He didn’t say a word to me as he came in. He just looked down at the file in his hands before sitting down at the desk.

“Violet Stone, right?” He asked. Straight to business. I always thought that Detectives were supposed to come off as friendly at first. This guy seemed like he’d come in with the express purpose of kicking my ass.
“Yeah, I’m Violet.” I said.

He looked up at me, sizing me up for a moment before huffing.
“Alright… well Violet, well my name is Vincent Bennett. I’m the Detective assigned to the Arthur White case. I understand you’re here with information, correct?”

Arthur White? Was that the name of the guy I’d killed?
“Yeah… I was… I was the one on the subway platform with him.”
“The one who pushed him?” Bennett asked.

I hesitated for a moment before nodding.
“It… it was an accident!” I said, “He’d grabbed my arm, I was just trying to get him off of me!”
“Right… tell you what Violet, why don’t you walk me through what happened yesterday morning, okay? Tell me everything that you remember.”

I did just that. I told him about how I’d run into Arthur and his daughter while I’d been out on a jog, I told him about how he’d mentioned my mother and how I’d followed him, and finally I told him about what had happened on the subway platform.

The whole time, Bennett just took notes and nodded quietly, only pausing a few times to ask a question.
“So - you attest that it was an accident, that Mr. White fell into the path of the oncoming train?” He asked.
“Yeah… yeah, it was.” I said.
“Okay. You mind if I ask why it took so long for you to come forward?” He asked, “I mean… this happened yesterday morning. It’s been at least twenty four hours.”

“I was panicking!” I said, “Look, I didn’t know what to do or if I should come forward or what!”
“A man was killed,” Bennett replied. “And you fled the crime scene. You also took a while to come forward. Forgive me if I find any of that suspicious.”
“Well, I’m trying to do the right thing now!” I argued although Bennett’s stony expression didn’t seem to change much.

“Miss Stone… are you aware of who Arthur White is?” He asked. “Do you know much about the White family?”
That question of his seemed awfully loaded.

“No, why are they important?” I asked.
“Depends on which circles you run in,” Bennett replied. “I’m gonna be honest with you… Arthur White was a real piece of shit. I wouldn’t really call him the worst member of the White family. Arguably he made the rest of them look saintly in comparison. But he was still a man with a… history. You say he resembled the man who you believed killed your parents… was that your only motivation for following him to the Prince Street station?”
“He mentioned my Mother by name!” I said, “He said he knew Diana Stone!”

Bennett paused, before looking up at me again.
“You’re Diana Stone’s daughter?” He asked.
My brow furrowed.
“What, you knew her too?” I asked.
“I’ve… heard the name before.”

My heart skipped a beat.
“So he did kill them…” I said softly, “You’re telling me that he did kill them?”
“Arthur White was not a suspect in the Diana Stone murder, no. His-”

Bennett’s phone started to ring before he could finish whatever it was that he was trying to say. His ringtone was the opening riff of ‘Phantom of the Opera’ by Iron Maiden.

He paused, tensing up a little at the sound of the ringtone. Then he quietly reached into his pocket to take his phone out. He stared at the screen, which depicted a big red X on it, before quietly standing up.

“Excuse me,” He said softly as he left the room, and for a few minutes, I sat there in the uneasy silence, waiting for him to come back. I found myself fidgeting with my hands again as I looked over at the mirror that dominated the wall to my left. I figured that there had to be someone behind it, watching me. Maybe it was Bennett? I squinted, trying to see if I could see him behind the glass, but there was no luck.

The only thing I saw was my own reflection, squinting back at me like an idiot and the security camera in the corner behind me. I looked back up at the camera, staring into it for a moment. I wondered if maybe Bennett was watching me through there. Maybe nobody was watching me? It was hard to say. I stared back into the iris of the camera for a moment, before the door opened again and Detective Bennett came back in. I saw him stuffing his phone back into his pocket.

Something about his demeanor had changed, but it was hard to say exactly what. When he spoke to me again, his tone was much quieter.
“Thank you for your time, Miss Stone. We have all we need. You’re free to go.”

Free to go?

“Wait, what?” I asked. “I… I just killed a guy! What do you mean I’m free to go!”
“You indicated that Mr. White’s death was an accident, correct?” Bennett asked. “That’s all we need. Go home, kid.”
I stared at him in disbelief. He was just letting me go? I’d fucking killed a man and they were just letting me go? That didn’t make any sense!

“So that’s it?” I asked, “You’re not going to arrest me or… or press charges or…?”
“No. We’re not,” He said. “You’re free to go.”

He picked up his folder and headed for the door again, pausing before looking up at the camera and then back to me. He held the door open for me, and after a moment, I got up and followed him.
“Do I need to get a lawyer?” I asked.
“That won’t be necessary,” He replied as he led me back through the police station. Once we were back at the front door, he pushed through and gestured for me to follow.

Once we were outside, I watched him take out a pack of cigarettes and a lighter.
“So that’s just it, then?” I asked. This whole thing still confused me.
Detective Bennett still didn’t reply. He just looked up toward the building, before taking a drag on his cigarette.
“Take my advice, kid… don’t ever look a gift horse in the mouth. It might not always be so pretty on the inside,” He didn’t look at me as he said that. He started down the steps of the police station, before pausing. “And do yourself a favor, keep your head down for the next little while.”

“What’s that supposed to mean?” I asked, but Detective Bennett was already walking away from me.

I’m not an idiot.

Something isn’t right here. I just don’t know what.

I keep thinking back to the phone call Bennett got. I’ve got a feeling that it had something to do with my sudden release. What I don’t know is what or why and to be honest, I’m not sure that I want to find out.

Bennett told me to keep my head down, and I’m smart enough to take his advice.

I’m leaving tonight.

I’m going to let Sam, Lisa, and Rose know over dinner. I’ll think of some bullshit excuse. Maybe I’ll say that it’s a work thing, or something. They’re not going to check. I’m supposed to be heading home in a couple of days anyway, so they’re not going to think too much of it if I leave early.

Either way, whatever the hell I’ve gotten myself into, I want to get out of it sooner rather than later.

2023.06.06 04:53 LinedScript Emotional rollercoaster

1/15/23 found lump during bath time 2/20/23 obgyn appt 3/3/23 mammogram 3/10/23 biopsy 3/14/23 official diagnosis IDC 4/12/23 met surgeon 4/19/23 met plastics 5/3/23 BMX MULTIPLE expander filler appts 5/18/23 met medical oncologist for first time
HAD med onco appt scheduled to reveal treatment plan this coming Friday. Doc’s office calls to RS appt as he’ll be out of the office. They ask to move it to tomorrow. I ask if onco type scoring has come back from pathology as that’s what we’re waiting on to map out a plan. No actually, the nurse says, it’s not back. It’ll be in Wednesday. Ok, I ask for an appt then. No, he’s out of the office then, Thurs is overbooked, Fri out of office hence the RS, so they move appt to next week.
Then an hr later they call back saying it should be tomorrow. I go over the onco type issue again. She explains it JUST came in and doc reviewed it and said not to wait a week, he needs to see me tomorrow.
Feeling pretty nervous about this honestly. I am glad it’s not next week, but I don’t feel prepared for tomorrow. When it was going to be Friday, that was easier. Friday appt, 5 hr roadtrip to see bf, so plenty of time to process on the road, and then weekend with him. Now, I get to find out and deal alone, then at the end of the week drive down to see him.
The back and forth of this appt has given me a little emotional whiplash. Not a fan. Help me get through till tomorrow afternoon.
Also, I’ve given up drinking. It’d become too much of a crutch. And I’d been self medicating. Not being a good version of myself lately.
My fave is grapefruit juice as an alt. But not supposed to have that on chemo.
This is all a catch 22.
Send help.

2023.06.06 04:52 ThrowRAdeliciouscuke Boyfriend (24M) constantly talks about another girl around me (25F)

Looking for a lil justification/advice here… my boyfriend (24M) and I (25F) have been seeing each other for 6 months now. He’s been great and we have a lot of love for each other. We both have friends of the opposite sex and talked about how we’re comfortable with that and even encourage it in that we don’t want to be possessive/controlling of the other’s friendships.
HOWEVER there’s one girl he brings up almost every time we hang out. She’s his roommate (technically dating one of his other roommates) but she’s out of town the next few months for a seasonal job. He will go on and on about her whenever anything even remotely relevant to her comes up. If someone asks about his roommates (he has 4 total) he’ll only talk about her and how great she is. After a party, where we hung out with 10+ people, he will only talk about how fun she was or something she did/said. It wouldn’t bother me if the focus weren’t always on her — he has other female friends he rarely brings up. Clearly he has a crush, I just wish he didn’t bring her up around me constantly.
Side note: we were at a party last weekend and after I went to bed he said he went skinny dipping with some of the guys and started to say her name (as in she was included in the skinny dipping) and quickly corrected it to one of the guys’ names. It seemed a little suspicious to me that he would hide that from me since I’m pretty sure she went with them.
Obviously I’m going to confront him about it next time he brings her into conversation, but I’m wondering if I’m overthinking it? Is it justified? Also, what’s a good way to confront him about it without being controlling or sounding jealous? If anyone else has had this experience I would love to hear thoughts.

2023.06.06 04:52 killyertvx5 Being a shameless adult Minecrafter

I was playing Minecraft on my little setup in my back sunroom while the kids next door were also playing outside. Our houses are pretty close together so i wasn't surprised when i just heard s kid yell (maybe 7-9yrs old ) yell "Whose playing Minecraft?" With the most "who da f does that' sort of tone.
I (28F) just smiled and muttered to myself "Me B****'"
I know they are aware no kids live in my house. It's just me my boyfriend and our friend and his gf. So i find it sorta humorous ha Just wanted to Share
