This is pretty specific. What is your favourite part of a PTV song. Mine would have to be either the first chorus of Caraphenalia with the vocal run at the end or the “live dies like a dog” part of The Boy Who Could Fly.

2023.03.30 06:12 life_0n_lemons Statute of Limitation
Hi all, I was bitten by a dog, no fault of my own, was walking and ambushed from behind by it, in august 2020, and it was a pretty bad bite that required me to get a lot of stitches and caused some discomfort for some time. At the time, I didn’t want anything to do with the person and didn’t want to go through lawyer search and suing, one because, I was unaware of the process, and two, I just didn’t think it was that bad. Now I’m stuck with a larger hospital bill and a life long ptsd of dogs (big or small). I was wondering what the statute of limitations is in PA to see if I could sue to get financial assistance with the medical bills.

2023.03.30 06:11 CloudMountainJuror Virus accidentally became my favorite Haken album
On the heels of Fauna coming out, I’m reflecting on Haken. And on the fact that for several years now, my go-to favorite car albums have been Vector and Virus. On the fact that Virus has occupied more of my mind than I’d realized or remembered.
I didn’t like Vector when it came out. I wanted another album formula closer to The Mountain and Affinity, and Vector just wasn’t that. A year later though I inexplicably came down with a thirst for it, and constantly listened to it. It turns out that I hadn’t thought the music was bad, I just really hadn’t been in the mood for it. And when the mood hit, it didn’t stop. I’m STILL in the mood for Vector.
Virus was announced. I became hype. Canary Yellow dropped as a single and I positively adored it. The album came out, and most of it was an instant hit for me - except Messiah Complex. Turns out, I’d listened to Canary Yellow specifically so much before release that I just wasn’t prepared for what they’d designed to follow it. Surely enough, given some listens, Messiah Complex conquered me.
Virus. IS. Messiah Complex.
Virus exists to build to something. That’s evident in the album’s momentum and tone. It’s maybe what I love most about it: its singular, unwavering focus on converging on Messiah Complex. From second one, its sole goal is to get there, and to explore the concepts leading up to it.
I adore how Vector is this small-scale horror tale, while Virus tackles a more big-scale societal perspective. Immediately the contrast between Prosthetic and Invasion makes it clear that the consequences of what’s happened or will happen are spreading, and that the Haken world is in for a reckoning of some kind. A storm is brewing. The world is falling apart, because of and/or causing the destruction of this person Vector was based on. Maybe disaster hasn’t quite happened yet. Maybe this is all just setting the stage for the complicated world the Cockroach King is going to be inflicted upon.
Messiah Complex is one of the best things Haken has made. I wouldn’t be confident saying it’s THE best when the song Visions exists, but it’s a hell of an accomplishment - specifically because of Virus’s construction. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about Messiah Complex since Virus came out. Different parts of it come to mind when I think of other fiction I love, other music I love, etc. Its exploration of the simultaneous rising and complete inner destruction of a mythical being is unparalleled. I adore this high concept kind of shit, and MC injects the best of that shit straight into my veins.
I just, don’t have enough time to express how much I love Messiah Complex. And naturally, how much I love Virus. Because Virus is Messiah Complex.
Oversimplification aside though, all of the non-MC songs on Virus bang. Prosthetic rocks the soul, Invasion and Carousel are peak focused high concept sociological commentary, The Strain is beautifully tragic, Canary Yellow is BEAUTIFULLY tragic, and Only Stars is immaculately foreboding. The album flows seamlessly and pointedly. When it ends, I know for a hard fact that I’m going to be revisiting it again sooner than later.
Thing is, though, I always thought Affinity was my favorite Haken album. Maybe on some objective level, it still could be. But I was still thinking that, 20, 50, I don’t know 100 listens into Vector and Virus. Not to say that your favorite album is necessarily what you listen to most, but taking into consideration how much my love for Virus kept growing… at some point, it accidentally took the lead on me.
And listening to Fauna now, I think it’s probably solid. Maybe I’m just in a grumpy mood right now and it’ll click harder for me later on, or maybe it won’t. What I do know for sure is that the whole time, I can’t stop thinking about Virus. How focused and unrelenting Virus is in comparison, how much Virus makes me FEEL in comparison.
And, hell, at this point, how it really must be my favorite.
Virus is great. And while I’m at it, The Alphabet of Me is S-tier.

2023.03.30 06:09 SnooGuavas785 CMV: Lil Darkie is a Good Artist, Just Misunderstood
Lil Darkie is typically thought of as a "bad rapper". Why? Because his music can come across as offensive. His music and lyrics have deep meaning, and he doesn't care what people think of him. The thing that really annoys me is that people judge him by his popular songs, but not his underground songs with deeper meanings and the content of his character.
People are also angry that he says the "n word" and the "f slur". The reason for this, is that he doesn't look like he can say the "n word". The thing is, he is allowed to say these things. He is mixed. He has said in multiple of his more underground songs, such as, "Learning Not to Give a Fuck", that he was called a "sand (hard r)" and discriminated against because of his skin color when he was younger. Sound familiar? Yeah, black people were called the "n word" and discriminated against less that 100 years ago, and that is why they use the word today. He also is bi, so he can say the "f slur" according to this generation.
I get if you just don't like how his music sounds, but that doesn't make it right to hate on him as a person and give him bad reputation. A big reason why he is hated is that people judge him without giving him a chance, they don't listen to his more unpopular songs, and they don't see the deeper message in the phrases he uses. I promise, if you give him a chance, you will look at him differently. Me personally, I don't like the rapper, Eminem, but I don't go around saying, "EMINEM IS A BAD RAPPER". The thing is, Lil Darkie doesn't care what he says in his music, that is why he says it. He uses his music as sort of an outlet. He is one of only rappers that says things without being afraid to be cancelled. He only says these things in his songs, not outside of them.
Some songs that I would recommend to listen to that could get you into him are, "Hall of Fame", "Therapy", "Anxiety", "Banana Pie", "Revolver", "The World Is Ending" "Awakenese", "Tour", and "Just a Little Bit Longer". Once you get more into him, you could listen to some of his harder songs that can be seen as more controversial, here are a few, "Colossal Conflict", "Nothing Matters", "F.A.N.U", "Darkie Still Cannot Rap", "Black Sheep", "Methhead Freestyle", and "Fight!". Now there are SO many amazing songs that I haven't listed, but that's besides the point. The point is, he has so many songs that people haven't heard, and people still judge him based on how other people look at him, or just because they misinterpret his lyrics.
Something that has happened in this generation, is that we have become soft. We get offended by every little thing. Now, some things that Lil Darkie says, I don't 100% agree with, but does that make him a bad rapper or even change my view on his music? NO! The whole point of his music is to say things freely without care. He says things that you will not hear in other music, that is why I love him. Take 21 Savage, all his songs are so similar, they all are sort of about the same thing, now I like 21's music, but I don't listen to a lot of his songs because they are so repetitive. But Lil Darkie's music has deep meaning to each word. Something that really brought attention to me was in a song called "Therapy" is when he said, "I'll run it for all you n**** hating on my style And all you n**** towing pistols talking wild / This is my therapy". In other words, he doesn't do this for attention, he does it to express himself. He is also trying to prove a point, that point being that race is fake, here is a better explanation of this in his song, "Revolver", " And I pray that you understand and I'm sorry I'm so aggressive If I had a hundred bands I'd invest it into my message / That race is fake / And people equal but don't wanna be / It's all because of greed and how we structure our economy".
He overall is trying to spread a positive message, and to the people who hate him, he doesn't care. He isn't doing this to attract fans, he is doing it to express himself and spread his message.

2023.03.30 06:09 vren55 [A Fractured Song] - Chapter 183 - Fantasy, Isekai (Portal Fantasy), Adventure
Cover Art! Just because you’re transported to another world, doesn’t mean you’ll escape from your pain.
Abused by her parents, thirteen-year-old Frances only wants to be safe and for her life not to hurt so much. And when she and her class are transported to the magical world of Durannon to fight the monsters invading the human kingdoms and defeat the self-titled Demon King, Frances is presented with a golden opportunity. If she succeeds, Frances will have the home she never had. If she fails, Frances will be summoned back to the home she escaped.
Yet, despite her newfound magic and friends, Frances finds that trauma is not so easily lost. She is dogged by her abuse and its physical and invisible scars. Not only does she have to learn magic, she has to survive the nightmares of her past, and wrestle with her feelings of doubt and self-loathing.
If she can heal from her trauma, though, she might be able to defeat the Demon King and maybe, just maybe, she can find a home for herself. Teaser: Martin and Ginger are thrust into an unenviable role.

Just let me know when you arrive in the server that you’re a Patreon so you can access your special channel. Despite his curly crimson beard and heavyset build King Jerome was quite a mild-mannered man. His soft chin and cheekbones lent the man a face more inclined to smiling than scowling.
He was doing both, which wasn’t something Martin nor Ginger had seen that. His eyes were narrowed and brow furrowed. His lips however were tilted in a wry smile.
“We did give you the authority to make treaties with Queen Janize directly, but these are harsh terms for us, Sir Martin, Lady Ginger.”
Martin had set up their mirror so he and Ginger were standing in front of it. He dipped his head, placing one hand over his chest. “I am afraid I don’t see any other option, Your Majesty. You know of the strategic situation and the dragons that Thorgoth has under his command. We didn’t want the civil war in the first place, but now we must end it or risk annihilation.”
Queen Forowena, despite her limp, was pacing around her chair. One hand clenched her chin. “We don’t even know if Janize will agree to meet with us in the first place. Though, that’s beside the point. You want to know if we ought to approve of this at all.”
“Yes ma’am, I mean, Your Majesties.” Ginger swallowed. “More importantly, we want to know if there are any terms you are demanding Queen Janize to accept.”
The eyes of Forowena and Jerome met. No words passed between them. Jerome only raised a thick eyebrow and Forowena nodded, before turning to the pair. “No, but I do have one question. Did Elizabeth and Frances tell you about my infertility?”
Martin winced, whilst Ginger coughed officiously. “Elizabeth did, Your Majesty. She said that she will take full responsibility for that breach, and states that trying to keep the secret was impossible given the nature of her mission and our involvement in it.”
Nodding, Martin braced himself and clasped his hands behind his back. “Which brings the question, Your Majesty, with all due respect, did you intend for us to assassinate Queen Janize and her child?”
Forowena and Jerome again glanced at one another. This time, Jerome was giving his wife a knowing smile and the Earl was pinching her nose.
“To speak truthfully, Sir Martin, Lady Ginger, we were not sure ourselves whether we wanted to kill Janize if she was pregnant. We have continued to debate the question and its consequences,” said Forowena.
Jerome grimaced. “What we knew for sure was that Erisdale had to be put to siege. Now, I argued that my sister should be spared as with her child.”
“And I argued that Janize and her child were a threat to our rule and our chosen successors. I don’t want to kill them for both moral and practical reasons, but I was not sure how to neutralise them.” The Earl ran a hand through her hair and glanced at her husband. “Dear, I believe that we can accept most of the terms that Martin and Ginger have offered our behalf except for the second point.”
The king took her hand, running his scarred fingers over Forowena’s knuckles “You are correct my dear. We will allow Janize's child to enter the line of succession, but we have chosen our successors.”
Martin did his best to keep his expression neutral. “Your Majesty, I don’t understand. There’s no other direct descendant of House Grey left.”
Forowena sighed, her eyes meeting Martin and Ginger’s. “No. That’s why after very careful thinking, we planned to appoint our successors. We have even talked to all the other lords and ladies who support us and even our kingdom’s most powerful mages. That’s why there’s no way we can fully accept that second condition. It would be impractical if not impossible to get them to switch their support.”
Martin frowned. He suddenly recalled a call where his mothers and sister had given him a very strange look. They seemed oddly proud, even when they’d just been talking about family gossip.
Jerome nodded, “That and we would still be at war with Alavaria. A child successor would be inherently less appealing, and especially one underneath the influence of Queen Janize at that.”
Rubbing her temples, Forowena drawled, “It’s also why Janize and her child are such a threat. Unless Janize formally renounces her claim, she’d always be able to make a bid for the throne through her child. Not to mention she could just influence the throne through her child if he or she becomes ruler of Erisdale.”
Ginger coughed into her fist. Lifting her chin, she glared defiantly at the mirror. “With all due respect, Your Majesties, it would be better than continuing this pointless civil war. So long as we execute Darius and strip the rest of the Traditionalists of their power, who cares if Janize has some influence over her child? She won’t be able to harm Alavari in Erisdale, or affect lasting change. We’ll still be here. We’ll watch her and if she goes too far we will have Queen Titania’s Alavaria assisting us.”
Martin narrowed his eyes. Forowena and Jerome were exchanging looks again. Both were smiling at each other, but the ends of their lips were curled into just a bit of a smirk.
“Your Majesties, perhaps you can enlighten us on who you decided to be your successors? If they are not a very popular choice, maybe we can accept Janize’s terms.” The knight watched the king and queen carefully as his words hung in the air. He watched as King Jerome blinked, tried to avert his gaze, before forcing himself to look him in the eye. He noted how Queen Forowena forced her features into an expressionless mask.
Martin felt a cold shiver run through the very core of his being. Unconsciously he grabbed Ginger’s hand. His fiance blinked, tuning to look at him with wide eyes. Martin swallowed.
“That is, unless for some insane reason you’ve chosen me and Ginger?”
The queen let out a small breath, while trying to keep her neutral expression. Jerome’s shoulders sagged and he patted Forowena’s shoulder. “Told you he’d figure it out.”
Ginger’s head whipped back to face the royal couple. “Wait, what? Impossible. I’m a commoner. A former convict!”
Forowena’s eyes narrowed and her voice rose. “You’re also popular with the people, one of our national heroes. If your little rebuke to us was any indication, you also are loyal not to Erisdale’s monarchy, but our country and people. As for the matter of your commoner background, you’re marrying Martin and you know what that means.”
Ginger hands clasped behind her head, almost screamed, “Yes, I am marrying into a distant relation of the Royal Family and one of the founding noble houses of Erisdale. I was ready for that! You’re asking me—us to become King and Queen of Erisdale!”
“Yes.” Forowena growled, bitter tears wetting her eyes. “And we would never do so if there was no other option, Lady Ginger, but I can’t conceive a child!”
Jerome’s hand reached over to squeeze his queen’s shoulder. “And there’s no way I’m divorcing my queen. I am a man of my word and I vowed to be with Forowena until death do us part. That won’t change.”
Martin coughed to clear his throat and crossed his arms. “Then why didn’t you just have a surrogate give birth to your child, Your Majesty? I know it would be shameful but did you consider that we may not want to be king and queen?”
The king blinked, looking a little like an owl caught by torchlight. Forowena grimaced. “I did discuss this with Jerome, but I couldn’t quite convince him. You do have a good point, Sir Martin. However, even if Jerome did finally agree to father a child with a surrogate, we would still want you and Ginger to become the next King and Queen.”
“Right, potential child ruler. Not good for Erisdale,” Ginger muttered.
Forowena grimaced. “That and how many children could Jerome father? He cannot simply start fathering children haphazardly. More importantly, children are vulnerable. Even if by some miracle I could bear children, I would push for you both to be added in the line of succession.”
Jerome nodded solemnly. “Neither of us are willing to risk the fate of Erisdale on a child, even if it was our own. Considering that our original discussion was about the potential for Janize’s child to inherit, I think you see our point.”
Ginger, biting the tip of her thumb, yanked her hand out of her mouth. “We couldn’t have been that popular a choice, though…right?”
Forowena grinned. “You weren’t everybody’s first choice, but you were on the lips of many and once we started to seriously press those who were hesitant, they agreed you two were the best option. They even pledged to support you.”
Ginger glanced at her husband, but he was still crossing his arms. He’d gone so still for a moment she wondered if he was breathing. Then her mind caught up with her.
“Every lord and lady under your command agreed on us?” she stammered.
“Including your sister Mara, Martin,” said Jerome.
Clutching her hands, Ginger took a deep breath. “But why not Lady Edana—
“Of Erlenberg and not Erisdalian,” said Forowena.
Jerome shook his head, wincing. Forowena sighed. “Otherworlder and clearly too close to Prince Timur to make her look out for Erisdale’s interest.”
Ginger pressed a hand over her mouth, her free hand clenching into a fist and opening. “Shit. This…this is really happening.”
Martin closed his eyes and nodded. “I believe so. My…personal feelings aside, I will do my duty. But what do we tell Janize?”
“That we’ve appointed our own successors, but her child will be in the line of succession, with our successors house to take precedent over her own. That might complicate the succession law for the future, but that can be resolved in time.” Forowena snapped her fingers. “Ah, and we will also make it a condition that the amount wealth and land confiscated will be determined on the basis of who the Traditonalists persecuted and to provide compensation for property damaged by their forces in the war.”
Martin and Ginger exchanged a glance. “Including Alavari, Your Majesty?” Martin asked, his voice quiet.
Jerome nodded. “That is the intention, Sir Martin. Now…I believe you and your fiance have much to discuss. If that is all, you may request to be dismissed.”
“We do wish, Your Majesties,” said Martin, bowing. Ginger mirrored her fiance and the images of the king and queen faded.
Promptly walking over to one of their chests, Ginger fished into it and drew out a bottle of wine.
“Care for glass?” she asked as she fetched a goblet.
Martin sat down heavily onto his bedroll. “Yes. We…well nothing is guaranteed. I mean we haven’t even gotten married yet.”
Ginger poured herself and her fiance two glasses and handed one to Martin. “But we pledged to after the war, and so have the other lords and ladies of Erisdale. Damnit, of course Frances, Elizabeth and the others would support us, but everybody else?”
“It’s unexpected, but now that I think about it, most people wouldn’t want to be named heirs to Erisdale. It’ll be a hard job rebuilding this kingdom after the war and essentially starting a new dynasty.”
Sitting down, Ginger sipped from her glass. “Dynasty. Fuck, I’ll have to do something about my family.”
“Give your parents a stipend and nothing else.” Martin pursed his lips. “Of course, if you don’t want to be queen, Ginger, you can just—”
His fiance leant against his shoulder. “Finish that sentence and I will smack you. We’re in this together, Martin.”
“I know and I love you. I just wanted to make sure.” Martin took a deep gulp of wine and swallowed hard. “Hopefully, this is the last of the big responsibilities we get.”
Ginger snorted. “I would not bet on it my dear knight.”
Her fiance chuckled, before his lips pinched together. “Promise that you’ll never start calling me Your Majesty, please.”
Wrapping her arm around the blonde man, Ginger smiled. “You’ll always be my shining knight, Martin. Nothing will change that.”
“Thank you, Ginger.”
Pulling her feet off the table where Janize’s mirror was and sliding them back into slippers, Leila crossed her arms. “How many years since you’ve seen your brother?”
“Not since the civil war started, so about two years.” Janize smiled gave Leila a peck on the cheek. “Honestly, I am both irritated and a little proud of Jerome. I didn’t expect him to hold out, much less turn the tables on me. I always teased him when we were younger. He was too honorable, to the point that he was dumb. I suppose he just needed to find the right group of people to help him along. How long before the meeting by the way?”
Leila glanced at the high noon sun outside. “Not long now. I’ve also redoubled the security spells and checked the room.”
Janize nodded serenely. “Good. Anything else you can think of with regards to the conditions we have and their terms?”
The Otherworlder tapped her fingers on her arm. “Well, it’s not exactly something they demanded, but it might come up. They probably will demand compensation for the Alavari that we’ve been experimenting on. It’s probably why they demanded land and wealth from our rebelling nobles.”
Leila frowned, meeting Janize’s narrowed grey eyes. “I mean, it’ll be hard to argue with them. They’ve captured several of the labs and have our research notes—”
Janize raised her hand, her usually relaxed brow now furrowed. “Leila, what are you talking about? What do you mean by labs and experiments?”
The Otherworlder’s eyes widened and she found herself sitting up ramrod straight. “Um, is this a particularly amusing prank of yours?”
“We are minutes away from a critical meeting. Why would I joke about this with you now?” Janize hissed.
Leila blinked and slowly shook her head. “You’re kidding me. There’s no way you could have not been aware of this. The castles and labs were garrisoned with army troops and Red Order mages.”
“Leila this is the first time I’ve heard about these labs and castles—” Janize grimaced as the mirror began to glow, the sign that a call was coming. “Oh dear. Oh dear. I…I suppose I will have to request to be informed.” Settling herself, the queen touched the mirror and watched as King Jerome, Queen Forowena, Elizabeth, Ayax, Martin and Ginger appeared.
“Hello Janize,” said Jerome, coolly.
Janize smiled without mirth. “Greetings, Jerome. I must begin this meeting with a bit of a somewhat incredulous confession. But please bring me up to date on what exactly has been going on in the labs you have found that were apparently operated by my forces?”
The queen’s smile thinned as sceptical scowls and narrowed eyes met her question. Ayax blinked, tail whipping side to side. “You’re joking right?”
Janize cut before the stunned looking Reformists could ask another question. “I wish I was, but I was just informed by Leila here that they did exist. Speaking of which, how did you come to know about them, Leila? This is not something discussed in my palace.”
A grim, almost haunted look came over Leila’s face. “I found out about it recently as well. A few months ago, Master Scarlet of the Red Order requested Otherworlder assistance in defending their outposts and castles. They had no strategic value so we pressed her and she told us they were magical research laboratories and they couldn’t move the research easily. After that meeting, Earl Darius tried to convince me, saying that it would please Janize if I sallied forth. I wouldn’t normally have believed him, but our situation was so desperate I thought it made sense. I started to prepare a counterattack, but then it didn’t matter anyway because you folks in the Lightning Battalion started to attack them and there is no way in hell we would survive a fight with a full army division.”
Taking a deep breath, Elizabeth tried her best to get her own temper and confusion under control. “You mean you weren’t told what was going on in there? When did you find out about the children?”
“Our standing orders were to take Alavari prisoners of war and hand them over to the Red Order. So I figured—” Leila dropped her arms to her side. “Hold on. Children? What the fuck are you talking about? I thought they were experimenting with prisoners of war and criminals?”
A cold snarl twisting her normally serene expression, Ayax rose to her feet. “You Traditionalists haven’t even been fighting the Alavari! How could you have gotten prisoners of war? And experimenting on them is still wrong!”
Feeling a headache coming on, Janize gingerly massaged the side of her temple. “Wait, children? I thought that was propaganda you were spreading. Where the hell did you even get children from?”
“From the Alavari that lived in Erisdale, and from those that you kidnapped from Alavaria!” Elizabeth hissed.
“I authorized funding and troops for magical research, not that.” Her stony-masked stoicism wavered as her lips twitched. It was as if the queen was trying to prevent a wince. “It’s not that I don’t believe you, but this is extraordinary.”
His eyes narrowed, King Jerome leaned onto his elbows. “Janize, I don’t understand. How could you have known nothing? You don’t trust Earl Darius or Master Scarlet that much.”
Janize pulled her hands from her temples. Drawing herself straight, she narrowed her eyes at the mirror. “No I don’t, but this is the first time I’ve heard about these experiments.”
Leila blinked. She knew her lover better now and as good at hiding her feelings the queen was, she did have some subtle tells. In this case, her shoulders were just a bit too stiff, stretching skin across her high collarbone. “Janize, I’m sorry, but that’s…not entirely true isn’t it?”
The queen tilted her head toward the Otherworlder. Her grey eyes glared daggers at Leila for a brief moment, before she turned back to the mirror. In an arch tone, she hissed between gritted teeth, “I know they were making mana batteries. However, it’s the first time I’ve heard about children. I have been suspicious about why Master Scarlet and Earl Darius require so many facilities for some time and have been trying to audit them. They’ve been stonewalling me with magical and military jargon or burying it in budget books under nondescript lines.”
Leila blinked. “Oh that’s why you were asking me what those words meant.”
“Yes, dear. Now, if the interrogation is over, I will agree to offer compensation to those children and their surviving family members. In return, I have my own conditions.”
Forowena sneered. “Name them. We have our own conditions as well.”
Janize grinned back. “First, my child is not to be next in line to the throne of Erisdale. In fact, I would like to renounce my right of succession and that of my child.”
It was rather hard for Elizabeth, Ayax and their allies to hide their surprise. Admirably, King Jerome only managed to show his shock through a series of rapid blinks. “That’s a major concession, sister.”
The queen turned her chin up. “In return, once you depose Earl Darius, you grant me his personal lands and make me an Earl.”
Crossing her arms, her thoughts racing a mile-a-minute, Elizabeth muttered. “You’d become Erisdale’s chief powerbroker.”
“I am surrendering after all and most of my allies will be gone. You got to give me something. Besides, if I remain Earl, I’d be able to keep what remains of the Traditonalists in check. Exile honestly doesn’t suit me, as comfortable as it would be. I want my child to have a future, not one where he or she has no allies and is bound to the crown.”
Forowena and Jerome glanced at one another, exchanging frowns.
Martin also looked to Ginger, who shook her head. He nodded. They’d had their own discussion about Janize’s possible offers and they had their own opinion.
“Go get em, Martin,” Ginger rasped.
The knight swallowed and coughed officiously. “If I may be so bold, Your Majesties, I propose we grant Queen Janize a county, not an earldom. In return, we shall protect her from reprisals and reparations that the Crown of Alavaria will undoubtedly request.”
Leila rolled her eyes. “What crimes? As you said, we didn’t fight Alavaria.”
A shit-eating grin blossomed over Ginger’s face. Idly twirling a lock of her hair, she crossed her legs. “Earl Darius’s forces kidnapped Queen Titania’s niece, Princess Morgan Greyhammer from the Alavari Academy of Magic and subjected her to a year of torture and experimentation.”
In the silence that followed, all that could be heard was Leila trying not to sputter. Janize was quiet and still. Yet the color was drained from her face.
“That dumb bastard,” Janize whispered.
Leila slammed her fist on the table, causing Janize to flinch. “Fuck.”
“So a county it is, then?” Ginger asked in an airy tone.
“Yes. Do you confirm your side of your terms?” Janize asked.
“We do. Our demand was that your child could not be our successor, which you have agreed to.”
“So the dynasty of the House of Grey ends I suppose.” Janize let out a shuddering breath and shook her head. “Then who is to be your successor?”
Martin and Ginger clasped each other’s hands in unison before facing the group.
“We are,” said Martin slowly.
“Until someone better is found,” said Ginger.
Janize arched an eyebrow. Leila sighed. The queen, however, nudged her Otherworlder quiet and gave a nod of assent. “A wise choice. Shall we continue?”
Author’s Note: So yeah, this is a bit of a twist, let’s see what happens.

2023.03.30 06:08 LemonMilkJug Reginald's Memoir Pt 23
One of Breanne’s life lessons was learned shortly after she moved to her apartment in the city. Addison and Hilary had just left from assisting with her first photo shoot. Shortly thereafter, her camera and tripod were stolen while she was looking for additional subjects. Having been sheltered in a small town she was too trusting when she left her equipment unwatched for just a moment on the street. Now to be clear, I’m not saying theft only happens in the big city. After all, back in my uni days while on a date with Sidney at the local thrift store, Sidney took the term “claiming a table” a bit too far. Thankfully, the powerful hand of the Fateweaver gifted Breanne replacement equipment. This event did not stop her from pursuing new relationships in her professional or personal life. Breanne was so open when meeting new people. She was able to find the good in people even when they had too many red flags for anyone else. Thus, her struggles to find the right one continued on.
Breanne’s professional life progressed nicely. She quickly found herself an old warehouse that she could convert into both a home and studio space. Shortly before moving into the warehouse she had found herself a roommate. She worked diligently. Again, several in the extended family volunteered themselves as models along with the new people she had met in the city. Not everyone was a good subject, but they tried. I still fail to understand the artistic choices behind Isaiah’s editorial. I guess it was possible he was expressing the anger he felt about vampiric penguin hikes. Not everyone can foresee or handle the changes being supernatural can entail.

2023.03.30 06:01 elektroesthesia Horror Themed Perfume and Makeup? 🩸🪦
Before people say "but elektro, it's March!" I subscribe to an Everyday is Halloween(™️) lifestyle and I know I'm not the only one! There are dozens of us! Dozens!
I'm hoping this amazing community will have some horror themed recommendations to share. I am primarily interested in perfume and makeup, not so much nail polish, but I'm happy to browse anything that someone thinks is especially awesome and on theme. I already have a not-tiny collection, which I'll list below. I'm very curious for Beetlejuice or Edward Scissorhands, Hannibal, Scream, modern horror (like Midsommar, The Witch, Hereditary), Hellraiser, or vampires (love Blade, Dracula, and Underworld) but any good old school slasher is also of interest to me!
Ones I am already in possession of: Usual disclaimers on Sixteen92 and Hexennacht apply (search the sub for history) Midsommer Inspired
The Witch Inspired
- Strange Fire and Fumery May Queen - Geranium, daisies, meadow greens, vetiver, mead, a unique blend of red and blue musks

Wedding cake accord; sticky strawberries and raspberries; a shock of green melon and vibrant lime; an electric hint of mint and cilantro; grave soil; and a puff of smoke
- Bella Beaute Bar Strange & Unusual palette
- Black Baccara Halloween Shop - Highlights include rubber face masks, vinyl costumes, theatrical pancake makeup, fog machine, fake blood, and the distant caramelized whispers of wrapped candies. It's dark, creepy, and odd. Instead, it's an experience scent. You'll reach for this when you want to take a journey through this particular type of nostalgia. You'll want to wear this one when you fancy smelling like a vintage wall of horror masks or a 200-year-old haunted doll

2023.03.30 06:01 Addingtrouble4u Am I in the Wrong for wanting to cut my Sister In Law out of my Wife, mine and baby (coming soon) lives?
I 25M have been with my Wife 27F for the last five years. She comes from a very old school conservative Hispanic family we’re her feeling would never be validated and if her views went against her family they would outcast and make her feel like shit. Over the years she has had to deal with putting her feeling aside for the benefit of her family but they would never do the same for her. The five years I’ve been with my wife I’ve gotten to know her Sister 25F(SIL). From day one I’ve know the type of person my SIL is. My Wife would drop everything to help and be there for my SIL but she would never do the same for my wife. Whenever we would call her out on it or tell my MIL (56F)about it my wife would get called selfish, emotional, and just trying to cause a problem.
Quick side example of what I mean. My wife went off on her Mom and sister one day cause they kept on blowing up her phone during a busy day at work. After blowing up on them her mom and sister tagged teamed my wife and called her emotional, crazy and dramatic. A few days later my wife texted her sister during work hours and my SIL bitched at my wife saying that she should know not to text her when she is at work. #Doublestandards
So through the five years of being together there have been hundreds of similar stories at different severities. But what happened today pushed us to a point of possibly no return.
We are currently pregnant with our first child. My family live 6 hours away but my wife’s family lives only 20 minutes from us. We have made it a point over the last year to invite my SIL and her new boyfriend to intimate and family events and dates, but they never do the same for us. We understand everyone has busy schedule but my wife and I believe you make time for what is important to you. Since my SIL will be the Aunt our child lives nearest to we wanted to make sure we build a better relationship.
My wife decided to have a conversation with my SIL about this. My wife decided to tell her sister in a calm manner “hey I know we have busy schedules, but me and my husband feel that we have made a effort to invite and connect with you and your boyfriend, but you haven’t done the same for us. With the baby on the way we just want to make sure our relationship is strong and that we hang out whenever possible that works with all our schedules.”
After saying that my SIL begins to yell saying that we aren’t understanding of her and her boyfriend busy schedule. That we don’t ever empathize with her. Mind you my wife work 6 days a week and with my job depending on the week I can work a regular 9-5 5 days a week to at times 12-15Hrs days 7 days a week. We have busy schedules as well but still make the time for family when we can.
My SIL said that we had to be understanding of her life and that we are making a big deal out of nothing. We never went into the discusión wanting to fight we went in wanting to establish a better relationship. But from the way she was talking it seemed not only that she didn’t care to build a better relationship with my wife and I, but also didn’t care to build one with our child once she comes into this world.
My wife hurt from her sisters words walked out. To my wife she has made time to help her sisterwhenever she needed cash, take care of her dogs, support her through illness and heart ship and never got the same from her sister.
For my wife this was the last stray. She now doesn’t want to put the effort into her sister anymore and doesn’t want to invite her sister or her boyfriend to any more family event we host, she pretty much want to cut off my SIL.
As my wife said “I tired of putting effort In to people that aren’t willing to put that same effort back into me. I’m not gonna bring people into my child’s life who don’t care for them even if they are blood”.
Now we are nervous because we don’t know how her mother will react to our decision to pretty much cut my SIL out of our lives. Her mother has always taken my SIL side whenever we have spoken to her in the past, right or wrong my MIL will take my SIL side. Her reasoning is always the same. My SIL tried unaliving herself in middle school so now MIL think if she doesn’t take my SIL side and allow her to do what she wants to other family members then my SIL might try to do it again.
Family is important to my wife and I. We just wanted to make sure that the people we surround of child with are people who are as invested to her life as we are into theirs. We just ask for mutual respect and effort but feel we will never get it from the SIL so our only option is to cut the cord away from her and possibly the MIL depending on how she reacts or what side she takes.
Are we in the wrong here? 😓

2023.03.30 05:54 KayTheKoala AITA for not cooking for my nest partner and her boyfriend?
So, some background context.
My partner (let's call her Anne) (30F) and I (29F) have lived together for over 5 years now, and actually been together in a relationship for just over 3. She has an on-again-off-again boyfriend(we'll call him Hunter) that she's been with romantically for almost 10 years now. He doesn't live with us, and quite frankly neither myself nor Anne really want him to live with us. It's complicated for them, but it makes her happy, mostly. Anne is also disabled with an autoimmune disorder that causes her constant full body pain, preventing her from working or having an income, and because we live in the USA, she hasn't worked enough to qualify for disability payments (because America actually sucks). So I fully support myself and Anne financially and our 2 dogs and cat, with no contribution from Hunter whatsoever.
It also needs to be stated that Hunter and I don't like each other. We tolerate each other for Anne's sake, but it's one of the reasons for the "on-again-off-again" bit, but certainly not the only one.
Anne and I also recently moved 4 months ago, having to downsize a LOT, so some pans and what not are still in storage. Hunter had not visited this new place up until last week because they were fighting up until that point. The visit went well enough. We all had some new tea Anne had bought and was really excited for us all to try. For the most part, i stayed in our bedroom to both give them privacy and also play the rare PC game I don't usually have time for. (I work 55+ hours a week to support us). All in all, last week went well.
Okay, now onto the post title.
Hunter visited again today. I didn't mind, honestly, it's another chance for me to get to game.
Before he arrived i spent all morning tidying up the place, making sure cups and stuff were clean so Anne could make her teas, etc. Seriously, i had no problem doing this, Anne was asleep while i cleaned, and it gave me the rare quiet time to myself.
Hunter comes over, all is going well. He and Anne are playing something on Xbox, I'm playing my PC game. We're all chilling.
After a couple hours, Anne comes in the bedroom and asks when I plan on making the "starving house into a food house." I was kind of distracted by my game, and said there was leftovers she could heat up. There's a little back an forth and she wants Quesadillas, which we were missing a handful of ingredients. Not a big issue, though i will admit I'm a bit annoyed at this point, but cie la vie, whatever. I picked up everything from the store, literally just beans and cheese, and head back. I set everything on the counter, and let them know everything was there, went back to my game.
About 30 minutes later Anne comes back into the bedroom asking when I was going to make food. At this point I asked why couldn't she, considering everything was already cooked and they just needed assembly.
Her response, (I'm paraphrasing) "so you're just gonna let us starve?"
"He's your guest, and I'm not hungry. Both of you are capable of heating up food."
Still some bickering, but I stopped my game again, heated up the beans, the meat, set up everything so they could make their own quesadillas, let them know, and went back to my game.
I'm annoyed at this point, but my evening isn't ruined.
Only after about 10 minutes this time, Anne once again comes into the bedroom, mad at me because the pan is too small (8") for the tortillas (10") we have, and her quesadilla came out ugly.
"I feel like you're only being like this because Hunter's here"
That comment is where I actually started getting pissed off.
The argument basically went along the lines of me saying "I'm not going to eat, why should I bother to cook right now?"
And Anne saying "so that means none of us get to eat? You're a chef, why can't you cook for us now?"
We ended up having a small shouting match, in front of Hunter.
So, my asthma starts kicking up right around now, and the lack of oxygen is only making me more upset. I mentioned this, and, after making BOTH of them a quesadilla, and NONE for myself, (again, not hungry), I tried to go back to my game.
Again, she comes in complaining that her cheese isnt melted and the quesadilla isn't done.
Only now, my asthma has kicked up so bad i had to leave and go to the ER because my inhaler wasn't working.
Only now that I'm in the ER with a breathing treatment has she apologized somewhat, though still blaming me for not planning out a meal. And quite frankly, I only plan our meals out like 1 or 2 times a month, everything else i bring home from work because I'm a high volume/capacity cook in my day job, and don't want to literally cook all the time.
I don't have a tldr, if you need one, this post ain't for you, sorry.
I might be in the wrong here, but please, any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

2023.03.30 05:48 xenofag69 Daredevil fan animation instagram ad
Few months ago In 2022 I saw an ad for a daredevil fan animation. The color pallet was red and slightly black with white and browns. It was an ad for the animator not the show. It used a rock song and it was Matt Murdoc hitting the screen on beat and it cuts to the daredevil logo.I saw it on instagram. It could've been on Facebook aswell due to it using meta ads. if anyone else saw it please tell me the animators name or resend me the animation.

𝙋𝙡𝙤𝙩𝙨 To End A War (Craving)
Sophate and Anoria had been fighting for ages after Anoria had murder the previous King of Sophate during a summit. After the death of Y/C's father. Y/C swore to avenge him with the assistance of his people. Sophate and Anoria went to war. Years of war Y/C would be called a Tyrant a Warlord with no sense of Mercy. Rumors whispered though Anoria as Y/C began claiming land. Years of death and war both kingdom's wanted a solution. That was an Arranged Marriage. Y/C suspected a trap.
>!Anoria was supposed to marry his eldest daughter to Y/C but in turn choose his youngest as a punishment for her miss spoken judgements. Except Y/C had no idea he was marrying a women. Who was currently leading the Anoria rebellion against her father's back.
Y/C had set his own trap this time not taking a chance demanding that he was to have the princess's virginity the first night of the peace talks. A ball to celebrated of their engagement. While Y/C makes his move and to capture the King and behead him after he had claimed the Kings daughter. While M/C is busy trying to make sure that her father doesn't interrupt the Engagement.!< His Saving Grace - Modern Day Roleplay (craving) Y/C had it all the car, the women of his dreams, and more importantly a business that made him millions. He thought his life was perfect. Except it all came crashing down when he had discovered his wife of 10 years decided to cheat on him. He came home one night after the company's big announcement, confused why she was not there, only to find her in bed with another man in their home. Y/C was crushed to the point his productivity slipped. He was drinking and depressed he couldn't get out of the funk. To top everything off she was demanding a divorce and alimony that he didn't want to fight. All while on the sidelines his partner was having to watch him go down him. M/C picked up the slack for having to care for things while Y/C was depressed. To the point she was doing things, she shouldn't have to do. Making sure he had clean clothes and ate for the day. She was growing concerned but it finally boiled over. When she could no longer see him wallowing in self-pity. He deserved better. She helped him get a good divorce lawyer and was prepared to help him fight the Alimony and now he found out his soon-to-be ex-wife is pregnant and he doesn't know what to do. Reunited At Last - Bootleggers Plot
>! - Their Past - Y/C and M/C have been in the trenches of WWI. Y/C was a trench raider, and M/C was a nurse with the Red Cross. They had gotten along since the beginning, and every time they crossed paths, it was flirtatious and innocent joining the way when both of them were barely adults. They took small moments with one another when she was busy patching up people. He took just the idle moments between one another. Toward the end of the war, they were both darker both tormented by the things they saw. Separated the day he was injured, near death, he was pushed into their hospital resources were low, and they were going to allow him to die. She fought people to help him and saved his life till she took it upon herself to save his life. When he was breathing again after nearly dying. She was ripped away and thrown in a brig till she was sent back to America for disobeying doctors' orders and using resources. She was told he had died and soon had to live with that but, miscommunications on the field he was very much alive. - Reunited - After WWI the men that returned were haunted by the horrors the Germans caused on the battlefield. Many turned to the bottle others drowned themselves in work. Men flocked to America for new opportunities. Y/C and a friend decided that they wanted to get into the booze business but that quickly soured. As his friend wound up in prison. The Eighteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution took away licenses to do business from the brewers, distillers, vintners, and the wholesale and retail sellers of alcoholic beverages, and in 1920 alcohol was outlawed, thus beginning a new war. Deciding it was best to get into the bootlegging business. The novelty soon finds himself more drinking from the bottle than actually making his business run till he runs back into M/C who was working for a large crime family as a Doctor.!< Accepting

2023.03.30 05:43 kaitlyn2004 Tamron 70-180 - how bad is the dust?
In the search for a telephoto zoom option (f4 or better - ideally f2.8) for my a6600, it largely seemed that the tamron 70-180 was the front runner. And indeed it seems like a good option.
however in my research it seems dust is also a big complaint with the lens. Just how bad is it? I am aware that dust at the front is unlikely to have any meaningful impact on image quality, but could impact flaring if shooting towards the sun. Also affects resale value, and given that the lens extends can it grind/damage the internal components?
I don’t have a camera store near me to see this lens in person. Can anyone with this lens please give me the good bad and ugly?
For context I used to be a FF pro shooting with canon 5d + L glass, but this is purely recreational/social photos mostly of my dog and friends out adventuring in the mountains (and because my dog can’t be still like a human, the OSS is not so important to me. And at least the a6600 has IBIS for some help)

2023.03.30 05:43 skimchocymilk A few things I have noticed
| || | submitted by skimchocymilk to WelcomeHomeARG [link] [comments]
- The vinyl disc. Has some kind of wording written on it. It could be the song list, however I can’t make it out. Have to do some further investigation.
- The D is crossed out. Very odd detail. A,B, & C are all fine. Could it be that they are not selling whatever product is D?
- The hat the snowman is wearing has the word “Soul” written on it with a bunch of question marks surrounding it. I suppose that could maybe be referencing like Frosty the snowman how his hat gives him life, but I feel like that is a very unique detail.
- Frank’s book has the words “Lovely Eats!” On it as well as 3 shapes and a fork drawing. Could just be that it’s a cookbook and I’m overthinking it but still, that’s what I’m here to do.
- The house, or “Home” rather. Those 3 sequences of home to me show like regular Home, but when it’s called “Wally’s house” it gets all sad. The 3rd picture looks like it’s blushing cause after “Wally’s house” it says “Home” almost list somebody is correcting them.
- The eye on Sally’s concept art. I highly doubt that’s Sally’s eye given that there’s another eye towards the right that’s supposed to be hers. Likely the whole thing that Wally is watching but why on her art particularly I’m unsure.
- I just find it funny that Wally’s Halloween costume is a devil. No way in hell that’s a coincidence lol. A little bit of foreshadowing maybe.
- The heart on Barnaby’s paw and also on Wally’s shoe. Could mean they are attached in some kind of way?
- The cross cufflings. Those are the only 2 pictures I could find those. The others are just regular. Maybe Wally is some kind of corrupt priest dude I really don’t know but again, very unique detail.
- Wally’s name is in red. An odd detail that stood out to me for some reason. Wally’s name is also in red for his signature and on the guestbook page 7 I believe. Could that be Wally kind of highlighting himself?
There’s of course other things I’ve noticed but they’ve already been covered on here to some extent. If you have any ideas on some of the info I put please share! Thanks
2023.03.30 05:34 Old_Necessary_8904 My pregnant dog is leaking clear liquid
My dog is about 56 days pregnant. I found her about 30 minutes ago with a wet butt licking a clearish red liquid from the ground. I haven’t found anything on google describing exactly what it was, most places say something about a brownish red discharge. But overall red while pregnant is a bad sign. Apparently something about her placenta and the puppies not having enough oxygen. Her butt is now leaking a clear liquid which seems to be normal however i’m off put. I’d like to take her to a vet but we’ve already spent money we don’t really have to get her checked out. I’ve been worried about her possibly miscarrying since the doctor said she was having ten puppies. She seems fine now, panting a little more than usually but not what you would expect from a dog in labor. She can still walk and bark at our neighbors so i don’t know. My mom doesn’t want her giving birth inside so she kicked us out and she’s hiding in her kennel in the backyard, me or my brother are probably going to fall asleep with her out here. I know medical advice isn’t allowed however if someone could give a general idea if she’s okay or if this is normal/ not normal, it would be very appreciated

2023.03.30 05:29 JAWS0719 Theory’s I have about possible album stories (just some connections I think are cool)
There are a couple connections that I have found when I listen to some of Avenged Seven-fold's albums that I wanted to share with other fans. These are just some theories that I thought were fun to think about so don't start flaming me if I get something wrong. I am not saying any of this is intentional by Shadows or anyone from the band. I am a newer fan of Avenged Sevenfold so take it easy if I don't know what certain things mean. Also I am going to be referencing another theory by CM-NYY-DJ-FAN talking about rearranging the Nightmare album's songs into a story: https://www.reddit.com/avengedsevenfold/comments/62alqgiving_a_plot_to_nightmare/
1st Theory: Some albums are based off of hell Especially in Nightmare and City of Evil the albums are all based of someone going to hell and sometimes doesn't talk what they did to get there. Someone had a theory about nightmare being about a soldier that killed someone and died so then has to suffer in hell. Eventually coming to terms with his damnation in Save Me. Beast and the harlot has to do with someone meeting Satin and learning about the environment they are now stuck in, and possibly destroying the city of gold (even possibly Satin and taking the thrown but I don't think they would take it). Bat country can be interpreted as that same character seeing the baron wasteland they are in and asking for help and eventually giving in and making a beast out of themselves. Burn it down is this beast they created becoming paranoid and further pushes me to think he tries to kill Satin with the line, "One king to watch the horsemen fall." A wicked end shows this person just gone completely insane and completely giving up on mankind, "Walls are falling, churches burning, women ravaged, children crying. Flesh is tearing, some still fighting. In this world of misery" Then possibly taking the thrown of hell. But these characters will come into play later on in the theories.
2nd Theory: Hail to the King making a earth breaking ending for the characters Shepherd of Fire opening up with a blank slate character (we never get to see from their perspective) damned to hell and he gets to see everything unfold. The soldier from Nightmare has become the "Shepherd of Fire" but he isn't as hateful as the other demons that greeted him, "See I pity in watching you suffer. I know the feeling of feeling of being damned alone. I've got a storybook of my own." He knows what the person has done and knows that it is hard to accept this new reality. Hail to the king is the new person being introduced to the Ruler of the City Of Evil that we have met before, a ruthless and vengeful killer. Doin time doesn't really have to do anything to the story but has some key lines that show the newcomer starting to lose their minds, like the writings on the walls, and seeing lifeless devils crawling. This Means War (I'm pretty sure it has a real world meaning but in the terms of the story) comes back to the King of Evil preparing for a war we don't know about just yet. Heretic and Coming home doesn't have any story meaning or at least nothing I could have thought of. Crimson day finds the newcomer meeting someone in hell that he doesn't have to hide from. Someone that is just like him, scared and lonely. They meet and somehow find love in hell. Requiem can be the army preparing themselves for something big that is about to happen, "Darkest Lord, your mercy shall I gain. Strike the match, engulf the earth in flames!" Then the City of Evil's foreshadowed war finally happens in Planets. The King opens the gates of hell and invades the real world, trying to get the attention of God, "You awoke the giants who were dormant in the sky; Mother of all, your time is coming. One with eternity. When planets collide" Hell has poured out Doom style and aiming at Heaven. "Take heed the final march is closing in. You can't defeat them on your own. Weapons are longing for the final stand. And their all aimed at you from heaven." That's were I think the Planets collide comes in, its polar opposite "planets" (heaven, hell, and earth) all colliding together in war. I think M. Shadows vocals also prove this on how he just has so much force behind his voice when he says, "When Planets COLLIDE!" Its the King yelling to God that he is now here. Acid Rain (in my opinion) is one of the saddest songs that Avenged Sevenfold has ever put out (along with Fiction and Victim) the notes and the slow sadness in Shadows makes it hit hard. That's why I think this is the soldier or the Shepherd of Fire's song. He wanted to be redeemed and be reunited by his family but now hell is on earth. "Children still play in the garden, Dance as the sun slips away. Not even stars last forever. Cleanse us acid rain!" The Shepherd is begging for heaven to do something. He doesn't want any of this to continue. But knowing how the song ends, I don't think his prayers worked.
Now I know this doesn't make any sense and was way to long. There are so many plot holes and songs that have no meaning to the plot, but one day it just clicked in my head that some things matched. I may be crazy, but hell invading earth with while being lead by the same protagonist as City Of Evil sounded insane. Do you agree with some things (probably not). Do you guys have any changes that might help the story. Let me know, thanks for listening to my ted talk.

2023.03.30 05:26 sorceressgaia12 2022 TOP 5 MOST WATCHED SONGS BY FEMALE KOREAN ARTISTS (BY SEASON) as per YOUTUBE
|Streaming Rank ||WINTER ||SPRING ||SUMMER ||AUTUMN |
|1 ||153M: WA DA DA – KEP1ER ||218M: TOMBOY – (G)I-DLE ||583M: PINK VENOM – BLACKPINK ||390M: SHUT DOWN – BLACKPINK |
|2 ||149M: STEP BACK – GOT the Beat ||201M: LOVE DIVE – IVE ||189M: AFTER LIKE – IVE ||193M: NXDE – (G)I-DLE |

|5 ||54M: INVU – TAEYEON ||44M: THANK YOU – BRAVE GIRLS ||131M: SNEAKERS - ITZY ||31M: BIRTHDAY – RED VELVET |
- WINTER Songs (JAN, FEB, DEC 2022), SPRING Songs (MAR - MAY 2022), SUMMER songs (JUN - AUG 2022), AUTUMN songs (SEP - NOV 2022)
- Streaming numbers were pulled MARCH 29 and MARCH 30 2023 and are rounded down for simplicity.
- I only included 'Title songs' in the ranking, which excluded "MY BAG" by (G)I-dle in the SPRING ranking.
- Links go to an unlisted YT playlist
- The reason why I created rankings by season is because already made seasonal playlists for 2022 so that I could; 1. Remember what songs were released during that time 2. See what songs that I liked to watch during that time and compare them to the songs I still love to listen and watch in the future. Therefore making this ranking was the next step to my curious mind since these numbers can change in the future as people continue to watch and listen to these songs.
- It is interesting to see what artists and their songs made the 'watch' ranking and it will be fascinating to see what the differences is if you create an audio ranking by season.
- Red Velvet, Blackpink, (G)I-dle, ITZY, IVE, LE SSERAFIM had multiple entries. 2022 is definitely the year where 4th generation artists and their songs have increased in popularity compared to 3rd and 2nd generation artists. In addition, it lowkey makes me happy to see that RED VELVET, BLACKPINK and TWICE in a playlist like these.
- If I was to create a similar ranking for the past and in the future it will also be interesting to see what artists make the rankings and what people remember long after the year has past.
- Does the YT ranking surprise you?
- At this time, what songs represent the season for you and 2022 overall? (It can also include B-sides as well). My 5 representative songs, in no particular order (geez it was hard to pick!) because I always find myself listening to them on Spotify and watching it on Youtube :)
- WINTER songs: NEWJEANS 'DITTO,' HYOLYN 'LAYING LOW,' WHEE IN 'MAKE ME HAPPY,' YUJU 'PLAY,' SORN 'SHARP OBJECTS'
- SPRING songs: SURAN 'DIAMONDS (FEAT TAEYONG),' LE SSERAFIM 'FEARLESS,' RED VELVET 'BEG FOR ME,' (G)I-DLE 'TOMBOY,' IVE 'LOVE DIVE,'
- SUMMER songs: NAYEON 'POP,' NEWJEANS 'ATTENTION,' SUNMI 'HEART BURN,' APINK CHOBOM 'COPYCAT,' SNSD 'FOREVER 1'
- AUTUMN songs: BLACKPINK 'HARD TO LOVE,' KARA 'WHEN I MOVE', ITZY 'BOYS LIKE YOU,' TRIPLES AAA 'GENERATION,' RED VELVET 'BYE BYE'
Did I make a mistake in the ranking?? (please don't hesitate to let me know!)

2023.03.30 05:23 LemonZealousideal915 Where does the drop pod land? A guide/analysis
| || | submitted by LemonZealousideal915 to DeepRockGalactic [link] [comments]
Hey there :)
This post is about teaching you where the drop pod will land. I am hoping to teach whomever wants to be taught.
- Why do I need this information?
- Where does the drop pod land?
- Weird things.
I have bought Deep Rock Galactic in September 2022 and have since spent well over 700 hours inside this marvelous game.
Once you reach account level 90/100, there will not be many more assignments and it is quite common to feel somewhat bored without any direction.
At this point I decided (like many) to play mostly (if not only) On-Site Refining.
After a couple hundred missions I started to see a pattern as to where the drop lands.
Now, none of this is rocket science or an amazing find. It might be that you already know this. But after my 700 hours of playing I have found that 99% of people do in fact not know about the "drop pod rules".
Everything written in this post are my own findings + opinion/conclusions. I have absolutely no clue if that's at all close to how their algorithm works. My findings could not be proven other than by trying and recording the success rate of my hypotheses. All numbers used, again, are based on own experience and perception, I am aware that the numbers can not possibly be correct, but I do think they give a good estimate and point you into the right direction.
- Why do I need this information?
Well, first off, you don't. If you don't care or don't want to learn or study or read the entirety of the wiki or whatever, then you simply don't.
- It's cool to know and show/tell others where the drop pod will land.
- It makes the end of the mission, which can be very difficult to survive, a lot easier and quicker.
- Knowledge is ROCK AND STONE.
- Where does the drop pod land?
a) First, I am going to give you the simple rules/algorithm that I "found".
All of these rules have to be taken into consideration despite their order. It's a lot easier to read like this (for humans):
- The drop pod will land at the furthest possible location away from where the button is pressed. This furthest possible location includes verticality and is calculated using the air distance/direct distance.
- The drop pod can only land within a distance of roughly 155 meters away from where the button was pressed.
- If the furthest distance is longer than these 155 meters, then a "line" will be drawn from the buttonto the furthest possible location and the drop pod will land on or near that line at the maximum distance of 155 meters.
- That's already it.
Being able to see where the drop pod will land can be quite difficult, especially in large Point Extraction caves. Additionally to that, the furthest distance often times includes angles that aredifficult for humans/our eyes to see and calculate with. Meaning that your calculations can bewrong because you held the map in a wrong angle or maybe the cave was too large to oversee.
b) On-Site Refining:
Right now there are 2 major On-Site Refining layouts:
- 1 big cave
- 1 large main cave that is a connected through a tunnel to a small side cave
Roughly 60% of all On-Site Refining missions have the second layout, and 40% the first one.
In the case of the second layout, most of the time, the furthest point away from the base/button is a spot in the side cave. Around 98% of the time the pod will land in this cave. Only (roughly) 2% of the time the drop pod will land in the main cave despite there being a side cave.
Considering that in 85% of cases where there is a side cave, at least one pump is in that side cave,there is almost always a pipe that leads to the drop pod.
There are missions, in which you can already see from the beginning, that the drop pod will not land near any pumps. In that case you can build the pipe towards the drop pod land location. The few more seconds of building the pipe can be very worth it.
Here are a few pictures to visualize and show the entire thing.
Pictures from Salt Pits cave: This is a Refining cave of the first kind (just one big cave). From just one look we can tell that the drop pod will land at either of the red circles. Be going there and analyzing the map, you would then find out that it has to be the middle one, thought it is difficult to see, because all of them look like they are the same distance away from the base.
And here is the drop pod.
Pictures from Sandblasted Corridors cave: A much bigger cave, again it is clear from the beginning that the pod has to land in either of the three red circles. The lowest one on the left is a lot further away than it seems from this position.
As can be seen here if you just slightly tilt your head by 180°.
Pictures from Crystalline Cavern "side cave": And here is the last case, a side cave Refining mission. The drop pod has to land right next to that red circle. In this case it is very easy to see that that is the furthest point away, but sometimes the end of the main cave can look like it's the same distance away.
And here is the pod, right next to the red circle and next to the likely to appear pump.
c) Point Extraction:
Point Extraction is awful when it comes to calculating the drop pod location. Especially since theyadded a lot of new layouts for this game mode, such as the one that contains 18 tunnels and 9 sidecaves. It really just comes down to using the map, a lot, rotating and changing angles until you havea good top down view inside your head, and then piercing the needle into the furthest away spot.
Again, I will now show pictures of one Extraction cave. A very easy to analyse Extraction map, pod has to drop at the circle area in the top right.
Same cave from below.
And there is the pod.
d) Escort Duty:
As you have probably already seen, the drop pod always lands very close to doretta's path, proving rule number 3. Also, it almost never spawns inside the spawn room, because you press the buttoninside the Heartstone room and that room is a lot further away from the spawn than the 155 meters. If you ever, for some reason, want the pod to land inside the spawn room or inside the Heartstone room, then all you need to do is to press the button 60% of the way away from the desired location.
I will show pictures of a "normal" (meaning I pressed the button inside the Heartstone cave) and a special Escort Duty mission.
Normal mission: Here is a normal Escort mission. The drop pod landed right next to Doretta'a path 154 meters away from the Heartstone and from where I pressed the button.
Special mission: Here is the first map part of another Escort mission, I am standing at roughly 40% of the way to the Heartstone.
Same mission, here you can see the second part/ending of that cave. By pressing the button here I force the pod to land 155 meters away, and the spawn is 100 meters away from me, meaning that the pod has to land inside the Heartstone cave.
And here is the pod right next to Doretta's vessel.
e) Egg Hunt:
For 4 and 6 eggs, the map usually is just the spawn + 1 big room. Since you most often work yourway outwards and get the egg that's the furthest away from the spawn last and then press thebutton while being away from the spawn, most 4 and 6 egg mission drop pods land inside the same room they spawned in. Of course this can be manipulated and changed, but it would just add time.
For 8 egg missions, it#s usually 1 gigantic room (though I could be wrong, I don't play much 8 eggs), so.. just look for the furthest place away, usually again close to where the spawn pod landed, as you work your way away from that.
f) Industrial Sabotage:
Since you always press the button inside the care taker room, there are 3 possible landing locations: spawn cave, hacking cave 1, hacking cave 2. It will land in whichever is furthest away, which you can already figure out while doing the hacking events. In 90% of all cases the pod will land in one of the two hacking caves and in 10% of all cases it will land inside the spawn cave.
g) Mining Expedition:
Mining expedition maps, no matter their size/length, are basically just a downward spiral that spirals around a line, that connects the spawn pod location/spawn room and the middle of the last room. And the pod will land close to that line, roughly 155 meters away from where the button was pressed. Though that does not give you a large advantage here, since the drop pod and its location are revealed just seconds after having pressed the button.
h) Salvage Operation
By Karl the drop pod could land anywhere. It could even land inside a wall. Or above the ceiling. Run. Scatter. Find it.
- Weird Things.
Sometimes there are... weird things. Things that I can't explain, at least not with proof.
So, weird thing number 1:
Sometimes the drop pod spawns inside a wall. Why?
My guess is that during the cave generation there was a "mistake" and that part in the wall that the drop pod landed inside isn't considered wall by the game, but walkable terrain. And if that wall is the furthest location away from where the button was pressed, then obviously the pod will land there. Though I have to stay this is rare. Sure, you might see it on reddit, but that's just the entire hivemind's experience.
Weird thing number 2:
Sometimes, the drop pod lands just undeinside the ceiling. How? Why?? How am I supposed to get there? *insert angry Greenbeard*
I think, that sometimes there can be very small ledges just under the ceiling. These ledges are walkable and are probably considered terrain. If because of verticality playing a role these ledges are the furthest distance away from the pressed button, that will be the pod landing spot. Though let me assure you, this is very rare. I play a ton of On-Site Refining mega caves and this basically never happens, again, a hivemind thing, if a million missions are played, then one might encounter it, still leaving the chance at 0.000001%.
Weird thing number 3:
Somewhere in the last 6 months there was a reddit post about a drop pod landing on top of the Point Extraction base. So what about that?
My guess: I have absolutely no idea. Utterly clueless. I mean I could come up with some idiotic lies, like there were 2 furthest locations and something something either or indecisive integer overflow and then boom. But no, I've got no idea how that happened, even if it was "just a bug".
If you have made it his far: ROCK AND STONE!!!
- Thank you for looking at my post and or reading it. I have been wanting to make a post like this for some time, but I am too scared of being booed, flamed, insulted or just simply downvoted. I am aware that I do not actually know anything about the algorithms and there is always a chance that I am completely wrong, but I wanted to share my knowledge/experience, especially since I am fairly confident after a lot of testing.
If you have any questions or corrections, I am happy to hear it.

If I can take my dog with me somewhere then she is coming with me. When walking people love to do what I like to call Drive by Petting. This is when you take your hand and without stopping you walk by and pet a dog from head to butt. Another thing people like to do is give her a friendly pat on the butt. I dont mind at all but im surprised by how many people do it. Are you a person who does this or have a dog that gets the drive by pet?

2023.03.30 05:22 OG_Kazaam I saw Steve Blake...
I saw Steve Blake on the edge of the Pearl the other day, wearing the most ridiculous outfit I've ever seen. It looked like he had just raided a thrift store and threw on everything he could find. He had on a bright orange suit jacket with green polka dot pants, and a fedora hat with a feather sticking out of it. To top it all off, he was carrying a small, absolutely ratty reusable New Season's bag under his arm.
As I was walking by, I couldn't help but do a double-take. Steve noticed and gave me a sly grin, as if he knew he looked ridiculous but didn't care. Suddenly, he pulled out five hot dogs from the New Seasons bag and started munching away. He awkwardly held one hotdog under his chin, while he placed two in each of his pant's pockets, while finally holding two in his hands as he started to eat.
I couldn't help but laugh and yelled out "Hey Steve, nice hot dogs!" But as soon as I did, he became distracted and dropped the hot dog held under his chin into a nearby puddle. He turned to me, his face beet red with anger, and started yelling, "You did that on purpose! You ruined my hot dog!" I tried to explain that it was just a joke, but he wasn't having any of it.
He stormed off, still fuming, leaving a trail of ketchup and mustard behind him. It was definitely one of the weirdest and funniest encounters I've ever had, and I couldn't help but wonder what other crazy antics Steve Blake gets up to in his free time around Portland.
