Chapter 24: Top Dog
Boys: Shawn
Girls: Heather, Lindsay
Episode 24: Top Dog
"Last time on Total Drama Action," Chris said over a shot of the film lot. "A sweet, surprise package from the outside world left Heather bitter," Heather was shown looking at her jawbreaker with disgust, "and the cast got a taste of life in zero-gravity conditions," the four were seen floating in the space shuttle.
"But all was not well in the universe as Shawn and Courtney continued to spitefully hate each other," the two mentioned were shown making comments at each other.
"In the end, Heather won the challenge," she was shown to be covered in barf, "but lost her sweet smell. Lindsay fixed things between Courtney and Shawn" she, Shawn and Courtney were shown talking, "but lost her chance to stay in the game almost. Thanks to a tiebreaker, Courtney lost the game, but won a Lame-osine ride back to the real world?" She was seen puking into her pot and entering the limo.
"Can Lindsay breathe once more now that she barely got lucky?" The dumb princess was shown in the confessional.
"Will Shawn be able to carry on without his sole alliance?" The conspiracy nut was shown looking at his tinfoil hat.
The scene flashed to Chris in front of the cast trailers. "All this and more, on today's out-of-this world episode of, Total! Drama! Action!"
The episode opened on a shot of the morning sun before panning down to the cast trailers. The camera centered on the girls', then cut inside as Lindsay woke up.
"That was a nice dream I had," Lindsay talked to herself while sitting up in her bunk. "Marshmallow pillows and candy rainbow pieces have never been so tasty."
She soon looked around for a bit. "Where did Heather go? I thought she would be back from showering last night."
The door opened and Heather walked in, though she was looking groggy and tired.
"Where were you all night?" Lindsay asked her roommate. "Were you out on a secret trip thanks to your immunity? Let me guess where you went. The cheese factory, Niagara Falls, or did you go to the mall?"
"Zip it!" Heather shouted. "I spent the entire evening in the bathroom."
"Why did you sleep in there?" Lindsay asked.
"That ghost slash vampire fighting freak soaked the last of the gumbo on me!" Heather complained. "It took me hours to wash the food off and make sure I smelled exquisite."
"I don't blame Shawn for what he did," Lindsay shot a glare at the queen bee's direction. "You made him get into a fight with Courtney. Things could've gotten worse if I didn't solve their problem."
"Shut up, Lame-say," Heather insulted. "That homeschooled reject is going down, and once I deal with him and you, I'll claim the grand prize."
"I have no idea how Amy could tolerate you," Lindsay told her. "You worked with her, sure, but you decided to strategize behind her back just because she had standards."
"Amy and the other contestants mean nothing to me," Heather said. "Just watch your back!"
Confessional: Heather
"I knew I'd make it to the end. Big shocker," Heather filed her nails. "I just can't believe the zombie weirdo and brainless blondie made it. So they may as well just give me the check, I mean come on. I think we all know who's gonna win."
Confessional Ends
Heather yawned and laid down on her bunk. Just then, the trailer door burst open. Chris walked in and promptly and joyfully blew a few notes on a bugle into the room. "Wake up, sleepyheads!" he announced with glee. "Breakfast is served, along with today's movie challenge. You've got ten minutes to get your sorry butts down there!" He backed out of the room.
"I bet today's genre will be "guy in a coma" movie," Heather suggested as she lied down.
"I doubt it, but I'm just going to eat breakfast," Lindsay said before leaving.
The scene flashed over to the craft services tent. "Wow Chef!" Shawn said in awe as the camera cut to a close-up of his plate as Chef ladled a portion of something that was pale yellow, lumpy, and slightly hairy onto it. "These scrambled eggs actually look pretty good!"
Chef looked at the theorist, then burst out into raucous laughter. "Scrambled eggs," he repeated before resuming his laughter and even falling over.
Shawn shot his food with a worried look and put it back before walking away. "I'll just eat on the leaves I've gathered."
Confessional: Shawn
"The way Chef was laughing made me believe that the scrambled eggs were too good to be true," Shawn confessed. "Or maybe they were poisoned. Or maybe they were drugged with sleeping medicine. But worst of all-"
Confessional Ends
Shawn sat next to Heather, who stopped eating once she saw him. "I gotta say, you smell pretty good," the theorist told her teasingly.
"It's just lavender soap," Heather glared. "I used three bottles of it thanks to your stunt."
"Now you know how I felt when you messed with my mind and got Courtney eliminated," Shawn said. "Zombies may eat brains, but they don't have any control over what they're doing."
"It's always supernatural stuff with you," Heather groaned. "I'm stunned Jo even likes you, but it makes sense. You two are ugly and can't dress fashionably to save your lives."
Shawn furiously got in Heather's face. "She likes me for me, and I won't change myself for her."
Confessional: Shawn
"It's one thing to be manipulative, but to insult my feelings for Jo? That's crossing the line," Shawn ranted. "Like Jo did before, I will make sure Heather loses."
Confessional Ends
The scene cut to Lindsay approaching the serving counter, only to look confused when she didn't see Chef. The cook then lifted his arm up and dropped a ladle of fake eggs onto her tray.
"Scrambled eggs?" Lindsay wondered as she looked at her plate. "It's the second episode all over again." Chef broke out laughing again behind the counter, but he managed to sit back up and wipe a tear out of his eye.
Lindsay sat down next to Shawn. "Hey Shawn. Where's your food."
"A heads up," Shawn whispered. "The eggs aren't cooked well. They're just fake."
"They looked real," Lindsay slid her tray away.
"So anyways, me and you are up against Heather, Lindsay" Shawn told her. "I know what you're gonna say."
"Let's team up and take her down," Lindsay grinned.
"It's almost like you read my mind," Shawn said, "but without being an alien."
Confessional: Lindsay
"Shawn is really cute," Lindsay admitted. "His constant nagging about his theories do bug me and he could really use a shower every once in a while, but I can see why Jo is into him."
Confessional Ends
"What can I do about the eggs?" Lindsay asked Shawn. "Chef will totally kill me with his eyes if I throw it away."
"Leave it to me," Shawn told Lindsay.
Shawn grabbed the eggs with his two hands. He mushed them together and created a ball out of the eggs. Twirling it on his finger for a brief moment, he tossed the ball away and it landed in the pot Chef was using to cook a meal. The cook stopped whistling to see what slipped in, but went about his business without a care.
"I can't believe he didn't even care," Lindsay commented.
"I don't know what Chef uses to make his food, but it's probably leftovers," Shawn said.
"Attention, cast!" Chris said, the camera cutting to him standing on the other side of the tent with a blue-and-yellow macaw perched on his shoulder. It squawked as the three contestants walked up.
"What is that parrot doing on your shoulder?" Lindsay asked.
"That's my new BFFF!" Chris explained with a grin. "Best Flying Friend Forever. That brings us to today's movie genre: the Animal Buddy flic." The three teens gave him skeptical looks.
Confessional: Chris
"You try coming up with twenty-two movie genres," Chris accused in the confessional. "It was either animal buddy, or guy in a coma movies."
Confessional Ends
"The hallmark of any good animal buddy flick is the human-animal bonding," Chris explained as his macaw watched him. "First, the human and the animal start out as enemies. Then, through many misadventures, the animal and human grow to care about each other," the camera zoomed in on the macaw as it seemed to be touched by the host's words, "and become fast friends."
The parrot rubbed Chris' chin affectionately with its head, and the host responded by extending a finger to rub the bird. However, the macaw decided to playfully chomp on the finger and squawked laughingly as the human winced in pain.
"You guys just hang tight for a sec, 'kay?" Chris told the cast with a calm look on his face. He walked off camera, and the castmates watched in mild horror as sounds of an attack were heard. Feathers flew, squawks were heard, and the host yelled "Let go of my coif!"
He walked back into view moments later, brushing the feathers off his shoulder but ignoring the ones in his now-ruffled hair. "So...where were we...?" he asked idly before smiling in realization. "Right! The first animal buddy movie challenge will be to pick an animal and teach it to be just like you," he explained as the camera panned across the wary faces of Heather, Shawn, and Lindsay. "That shouldn't be too hard, since you're all animals." A rimshot played, but none of the cast were amused.
Chris got serious again. "The cast member whose animal most resembles them at the end, wins the challenge." The contestants were shown again, and Lindsay in particular was looking pleased.
Confessional: Lindsay
"I love animals, especially dogs," Lindsay gushed in the confessional. "I even have one of my own. One time, I told my math teacher that his new hair piece looks like my dog's butt. But he totally took it the wrong way. My dog has the cutest curly little butt!" the blonde explained. "It was a compliment!"
Confessional Ends
The footage resumed at a shot of the contestants outside. "Alright cast," Chris announced, "time to meet your future BFFFFFs!" He motioned behind him, where something large and covered in an orange tarp was stationed between him and Chef. "Best Furry, Feathered, or Finned Friends, Forever!" he explained further, earning an eyeroll from the cook as he pulled away the tarp.
The four teens gasped as the four cages were uncovered. The camera focused on each animal one-by-one. First was a brown bear that roared at the cast, then a bigger cage holding a rather agitated looking shark, then a smaller cage holding a raccoon that tried to claw at them, and finally a bird cage holding a chameleon that rolled out its tongue.
"Pick an animal," Chris told the cast, "and get training. You have three hours."
"I got the raccoon!" Heather said immediately, shoving Shawn to the ground and dashing forward towards the small cage before either of the others could react.
Confessional: Heather
"I had to pick the raccoon," Heather reasonably told the viewers. "The chameleon is gross, the bear is huge, and the shark is murderous."
Confessional Ends
The scene returned to Shawn and Lindsay standing with the other animals. "I'll take the chameleon," the blonde said. "If it can change colors, I can't pass that up."
"And I'll take the bear," Shawn announced. "It has a lesser chance of eating me alive in comparison to the shark."
Chris saw that the final three have made their decision and chosen their animals, but noticed that the shark was lonely.
"So it seems they left out the shark," Chris mused. "I paid good money to bring all four of the animals out here, and I won't let any of them go to waste." He thought to himself. "What to do, what to do."
Ezekiel suddenly ran up to Chris. "Hey Chris. I'm here to help judge the animals."
"Ezekiel! Great timing," Chris piped up. "Say, do you want to pet sit for an animal while we wait for the judging part?"
"Uh, sure," Ezekiel agreed. "Which one do I have to watch over?"
"Chef, bring the pet here!" Chris ordered, causing the cook to drag the shark over to the home schooled guy."
Ezekiel's eyes almost popped out. "I have to take care of a shark? They're dangerous looking eh!"
"That's not my problem," Chris laughed while departing. "Just make sure it doesn't try to hurt the other animals. They didn't get picked, so they're sorta jealous."
All Ezekiel could do was gulp at his predicament.
Heather and the raccoon were sitting on a table. "I don't know if you've been tested for rabies, but I have my eyes on you, so don't try any funny business."
The raccoon snarled at her. "Hey hey! I don't want any trouble. I just want to win this challenge."
Heather pulled out a box of doggy treats. "If you behave, I'll feed this to you." This caused the raccoon to sit up straight, and Heather gave it a treat. "Good."
After devouring the treat, the raccoon held out its paw, causing Heather to awkwardly shake it.
The camera went to the chameleon, who's colors changed from red to bright yellow. It was supposed to change to Lindsay's hair color, but it didn't obey.
"That's not the color," Lindsay told her animal. "It's supposed to be blonde, not bright yellow. Let's try this again." The chameleon turned dark green in response.
The scene flashed to Shawn and the bear inside the service tent. "I know something that we share," Shawn told the bear. "We both like food, but the only difference is that I can cook and you can't."
The bear growled at that, causing Shawn to retract. "I'm not saying this to insult you. I'm just saying that I teach you how to cook. That way, you won't have to eat out of the trash can."
The bear smiled in response.
Ezekiel was looking at the shark still in its tank. He touched the tank with his hand, and after the shark chomped its jaws, he recoiled back in fear.
"You know what I like to do?" Ezekiel said. "Play songs on my harmonica."
The home schooled guy took his harmonica out and played "Ocean Man" by Ween. Just as he was going to get to the third stanza, the shark howled in boredom and pretended to fall asleep by rolling over.
Ezekiel stopped playing to see what the shark just did and sighed. "I know music doesn't kill animals eh. I'm not that naive."
The scene flashed to Heather and her raccoon lounging about. "I've already taught you manners, but I don't have anything else to do."
The queen bee's face lit up with inspiration. "I know." She lifted up the raccoon. "Want to help me sabotage the others? I'll give you the entire box of treats if you do."
The raccoon thought about it, but complied.
Confessional: Heather
"This will almost be like sabotaging my competition in the ballet competition, only this time, it's on a reality show," Heather said.
Confessional Ends
Lindsay's chameleon was now orange-colored. "My hair looks like it's colored orange, but that's not the case," Lindsay expressed her frustration.
Behind her, Heather had hooked her raccoon to a fishing line. She swung it over Lindsay's head, allowing for the raccoon to use a can of spray paint on Lindsay's hair.
Seeing what color the hair was now, the chameleon turned white.
"That's definitely wrong," Lindsay said while the raccoon resprayed her hair brown, causing the chameleon to turn into that color. "Wrong again!" Her hair got sprayed pink. "My hair isn't even close to pink!"
Not wanting to be exposed, Heather quickly reeled her raccoon back and took off.
The camera flashed back to the kitchen. The bear was stirring pancake mix and flour in a big bowl as Shawn watched him.
"I work in a bakery, so making cake is my first lesson in cooking," Shawn instructed. "I need to use the bathroom. Keep stirring until I come back."
After Shawn left, the bear decided to search the cabinets for more ingredients. The raccoon, who was under the table, crept from under there and stood near the bowl.
They took out a bottle of maple syrup, and quickly squirted it all onto the bowl. As soon as the raccoon was done, they went back to hiding when the bear came back with the ingredients.
The bear added some sugar into their bowl and resumed stirring the mix, unaware of the syrup. Heather saw her pet return back and they smiled at their sabotage.
Meanwhile, Ezekiel was bringing a set of books with him. "Alright, shark. I think you'd like to read a story."
He took out "The History of Canada" and turned to page one. "This book is one of my favorites. It describes how Canada was made."
Seeing the book that was picked, the shark silently whined before taking out some earplugs and placing them into their ears. Afterwards, they faked a smile just to show that they're paying attention.
"I knew you'd like the story," Ezekiel looked up from his book, unaware of the fact that the shark wasn't listening.
A flash took the scene to a stock shot of the film lot before another cut took it to Ezekiel, Chef, and Chris sitting at a judge's table, the contestants and their animal buddies waiting around in front of it. "Alright cast," Chris announced, "time to judge the animal buddies."
"Why does the bear have frosting on their lips?" Lindsay asked Shawn after seeing the animal lick their lips.
"It's a secret," Shawn replied.
"Heather!" Chris called, earning the attention of the mean girl and her partner. "You and your raccoon are up first!"
"About that," Heather walked up. "I didn't teach my raccoon much of anything," she said, causing Chris to frown at her.
Heather soon whispered to her raccoon, and before anyone else knew it, the raccoon sprung up and snatched Ezekiel's crochet hat.
"That's my hat you're taking!" Ezekiel protested as the raccoon returned to Heather.
"But I did teach it how to snatch and grab," Heather said.
Chris and Chef looked at each other and held up two signs with numbers on it. "Ten!" Chris announced with a smile.
Ezekiel revealed his score. "I give it a six personally!"
Heather glared at the boy and hurled his hat at his face.
"Alright chameleon," Chris said next, "give it all you got."
The chameleon stood on Lindsay's shoulder and turned its color blonde like the girl's hair color.
The three judges clapped and gave Lindsay an eight.
"Shawn," Chris told the remaining contestant. "Time to see what your bear cooked up." He opened the pot and saw a chocolate cake with maple syrup surrounding it. "Why is there maple syrup?"
"I don't know," Shawn shrugged. "The bear must've put it in as a surprise." He got slapped in the head by the bear. "What? I didn't give you any syrup."
Chef took the first bite. "This is an eight. The cake is good, but it gets hard to scrape off your teeth."
Chris was next. "Nine out of ten. I'd like the dessert better if you had properly planned it out."
Ezekiel was the last one. "Maple syrup goes great with everything," he smiled. "Especially cake. This scored ten points!"
"If it makes us look good, I applaud you for your skills," Shawn complimented the bear.
"Points have been tallied," Chris announced. "And the winner of the first challenge is Shawn!"
"Yes!" Shawn cheered, but noticed Ezekiel still eating the cake. "Uh, Ezekiel, are you gonna share with us?"
Ezekiel stopped eating when he heard him. "It is your cake, so yeah."
"I do get first dibs," Chris grabbed a piece before turning to look at the camera. "Be right back," he said with a wink.
(Commercial break)
The scene faded back in to a shot of a dirt road running through some unidentified forest just as a bus pulled up. Its door opened with a hiss, and Chris stepped off. "Here we are gang! Don't you just love field trips?"
Following him off the bus were the raccoon and Heather, then Lindsay with her chameleon on her shoulder, and finally Shawn who had to pull his bear through by the paw.
"The woods? Again?" Heather asked.
"Your next challenge is to find your way back to the film lot," Chris told them as an angled shot of some trees nearby was shown. "A ten mile hike through these woods," the camera panned back to the castmates, "using only your animal buddies to guide you," the host added and the shot moved over to the raccoon, chameleon, and bear as they shrugged in ignorance.
"But be careful," Chris warned. "Several vicious and life-threatening traps have been set up along the way."
"Who would do such a thing?" Lindsay got scared.
"Hint; it's the only guy here," Heather said.
"It wasn't me, so obviously it was you," Shawn accused Chris.
"Correct!" Chris confirmed. "First one back wins invincibility. Shawn gets to shave thirty minutes off his final time for winning the first challenge. Everyone ready?"
"Wait, where's Ezekiel?" Lindsay asked. "And where's that shark?"
Chris chuckled a bit. "They're just spending time together."
Ezekiel was standing on a rock supervising his shark. "I only have a couple of hours left before I can go home, and it's just you and me."
He realized that his pet had brought more sharks into the stream of water. "What the heck? Chris never told me I had to watch all of you."
"See you all back at the film lot," Chris told them as he took a step onto the bus, "and good luck." He boarded the bus, and moments later the door slid shut and it sped off in a cloud of dust.
The three teens lingered in the area for a moment, then slowly split up. Heather and the raccoon went left, Lindsay and the chameleon went right, and Shawn and the bear stood still.
Shawn saw the girls going their own ways. "I know how to get back. I'm a bit of a navigator," he told her companion, who smiled at the knowledge.
Confessional: Shawn
"If you want to know the inside of my bunker, check it out!" Shawn said before pulling out blueprints and showing his first page. "Entrance chamber with eye-scan entry and remote lasers here, here, and here. And here and here. And here." He turned to the next page. "Master bedroom with bite-proof bedspread and weaponized pillows, and just in case…" the page turned, "this is the panic room." He flipped one last time. "And this is the panic room inside the panic room. Can't be too careful."
Confessional Ends
Heather and her raccoon were shown wandering through the woods and searching around.
"How did Jo manage to do this part of the challenge?" Heather rambled. "It was a stranded episode, but I still don't know which way she went."
The raccoon rolled their eyes, but still followed Heather.
The camera flashed to Lindsay walking through the woods. "No offense," she said to her companion, "but I think I should've picked the bear. Shawn must be lucky riding on their back."
Whether or not the chameleon got offended, they turned themselves invisible. "What the? Where did you go? I can't lose you!" Lindsay frantically ran about trying to locate her pet.
The camera moved to show her stepping on a string hidden behind a small shrub. It snapped, and a rock was launched out of a nearby bush by what looked like a small catapult. It hit Lindsay in the stomach, causing her to kneel over.
"Those were the traps," Lindsay wheezed out before collapsing.
Confessional: Lindsay
"One of the things I would've liked to do with my money is spend it on a lifetime supply of lip gloss, but I canceled it because there's more things to value," Lindsay confessed. "Like creating a brand new style of lip gloss."
Confessional Ends
Back with Ezekiel, he was sitting down as he watched the sharks racing each other. He pulled out some cake pieces from the one Shawn and his pet created and proceeded to eat them.
"I should've packed them in a bag if I didn't want syrup in the pockets, but I'll make do," Ezekiel shrugged before a shark swallowed all of his pieces. "Hey! If you wanted a piece, you should have just asked!" he said angrily.
This wasn't the smartest thing to say as the sharks chomped their jaws and went towards his direction.
Not wanting to potentially die, Ezekiel took out the last of his cake slices. "If you want these, go get them!" He threw them far away, causing the sharks to forget about Ezekiel and swim for the cake. "That was close."
The camera cut to Heather as he followed the raccoon. "Are you sure you know where we're going?" she asked. "I am not going to lose because of you leading us in circles."
The raccoon growled, but still stayed by her side.
"Of course I'll be upset," Heather replied. "I have plans for when I win the million bucks."
Confessional: Heather
"When I win, I'm thinking of my own spin-off series. The World According to Heather," Heather described it. "Luckily, I'm up against the dimwit and the nutcase. So they may as well just give me the money, I mean come on. I think we all know who's gonna win."
Confessional Ends
"Chameleon, where did you wander off to?" Lindsay yelled as she walked through the woods, "We have to be together so we can make it to the film lot."
The camera followed her to show that she was rapidly approaching a large patch of ground with a suspiciously large number of sticks and branches on it. "Could this be the way home?" As soon as Lindsay stepped onto the odd patch of ground, the branches snapped and she fell with a holler into the pit that had been hidden. "Booby traps!"
Shawn and his bear were strolling along. You know," he told his companion, "I can say that I trust you. If you were robotic or built by Chris and the producers, there wouldn't be any trust." The bear giggled happily.
The camera followed them as they came across a pile of leaves. As soon as they hit it, a net seemed to appear in the leaves under their feet and dragged them up in a suspended bundle.
"This isn't good. We have to get down," Shawn mentioned.
Confessional: Shawn
"I never thought I would see the day where I got captured in a booby trap," Shawn said.
Confessional Ends
"I have an idea!" Shawn said as he grabbed some nearby blueberries and gave them to the bear. "You eat as many blueberries as you can. If we're lucky, your increased weight can get us out."
Shawn took out a piece of wood bark carved into a knife. "I'll use this to cut holes into the trap just to help us."
The camera flashed to Heather and the raccoon outside a small cave. "I don't think there's a time for breaks," she told her companion. The raccoon snarled viciously and crawled into the cave. "As long as we're quick," she complied and followed her pet.
Inside the cave was the raccoon's surprisingly luxurious den. There was a reading corner, a kitchen, a ping-pong table, and even a big screen TV.
"You guys are civilized?" Heather said in shock upon seeing the den. "This resembles my house, but much smaller." A raccoon walked by and offered her a sandwich from a tray. "One sandwich? I'll take more than that," she said as she took three.
The raccoon, holding a paddle, chirped at her from the ping-pong table. "Ping pong? Like I would pass up on that offer," Heather said before going over.
The camera went to the pit Lindsay fell into. She had dirt all over her body along with leaves, her boots were gone, leaving her barefooted, and she was drifting into insanity.
"I'm so hungry," Lindsay croaked out. "What can I eat that's edible?"
She pulled out her lipstick and took the tube off before biting into it. "Tastes just like cherries."
Meanwhile, as Shawn was sawing through the net, the bear had its belly and mouth covered from all the berries they were currently eating on. After a few more seconds, the net finally burst and the duo fell into the ground.
"We're free!" Shawn whooped. "Time to get back to the lot."
The scene skipped ahead to a shot of the afternoon sun high in the sky, the camera panning down and to the right to show Chris standing alone by the cast trailers. A little ways to the left was a meager finish line flanked by tall red flags.
"Shawn and his bear!" Chris announced as he saw them coming to the lot. "Nice one!" He proceeded to high five Shawn. "You're the first team to arrive, and for being the first one back, you get a guaranteed spot in the final two."
Confessional: Shawn
"Going to the finale!" Shawn whooped with the bear next to him. "Training pets can be a hassle, but as long as they're not your enemies, you can bond well with them!"
Confessional Ends
"Where is everyone?" Shawn asked the host, both watching the woods along with the bear.
"Sure they'll be here any minute," Chris answered while looking at his watch.
"I'm back!" the voice of Ezekiel announced as he entered the scene.
"Where's the shark, Zeke?" Chris wondered.
"It met some friends in the water," Ezekiel described the situation, "or its family."
"As long as a mammal is reunited with their family, I'm cool with it," Chris shrugged.
The camera panned to the sun as it set, then the moon rose, then the moon set and the sun rose. The shot panned back to them waiting for the remaining contestants, with Chris having grown a large and bushy beard, and the bear asleep.
"Any... minute... now," Chris said weakly, still looking at his watch.
"It's been days," Shawn pointed out. "Maybe we should send out a search party."
"And here they come now!" Chris announced brightly before speeding off screen. The camera pulled back to show Victor and his raccoon and a soaking wet Heather and her fox walking up to the brickhouse.
"Are you guys ok?" DJ asked. "What took you so long?"
"I lost track of time when spending time with Lord Montague," Victor said while gesturing to the raccoon.
"And I wound up taking the wrong river," Heather explained through chattering teeth.
A familiar shout caught their attention and they turned to see Kitsune, now sporting and eye-patch and the parrot on her shoulder, swing into the film lot on a vine. "Argh!" She said in a thick pirate accent. "It be good to be back in me home port."
"Welcome back cast," said a clean shaven Chris. "Better late than never. DJ and his bear buddy easily won the challenge, which means invincibility. DJ gets a free pass into the Final Three."
"Shiver me timbers!" Kitsune cried. "Good job me boy!"
"The question is; Who will join him in the Final Three?" Chris asked. "And who will be the next one outta here? The answer will be revealed on the most exciting Gilded Chris ceremony ev-ah!"
"Now be the time to make the treacherous wench walk the plank!" Kitsune told her allies, who just gave her confused and concerned looks.
"Faith!" Heather groaned. "You're so annoying!"
"Who be Faith?" The goofball asked in genuine curiosity. "I be One-Eyed Foxy, the deadliest pirate on the Seven Seas! And this here's me faithful parrot, Eddie," she added with an affectionate rub of the parrot's head.
"She spent too long in a pit," the parrot explained. "Rawk!"
Heather walked up to the goofball, then slapped her across the face. Kitsune's pupils shrunk and she blinked a couple of times. "Thanks," she said begrudgingly. "I needed that."
"I must say," Victor said, "this has been one of the strangest few days of my life. At least I do not have to vote for DJ now. And maybe Chris will realize that a mole is no longer necessary"
[A grand theme played as the camera zoomed in on the amphitheatre. Several film strips of the host's highlights from the previous season flew past the screen, then the camera panned out from a solid gold screen to show a Guilded Chris.]
"This is a big one cast," Chris told the four teens from his podium. "DJ's safe from elimination which means the rest of you, are fair game. So," he mined a cat's claws scratching, "sharpen those claws and cast your votes. Someone is going home for the last time."
"Pfft," DJ scoffed. "Sorry girl, but you gotta go." He made his vote, and the screen shrunk into the top-left of the screen.
Kitsune sighed in relief as she made her vote. "Now that's satisfying." She shrank into the bottom-right.
"Like it matters at this point," Heather spat bitterly as she made her vote. She shrank into the top-right.
"There really is one choice," Victor said as he made his vote. He shrunk into the bottom-left.
A close-up of Chris grew from the center of the screen and stopped just before it overlapped with any of the castmates' faces.
"The Gilded Chris goes to..." the host announced. "DJ! And Kitsune!" The screen cut to Chris at the podium. "Heather, since you were the only one who didn't vote for you, it's time for your ride home."
"Finally!" Kitsune cheered.
"And Victor will be joining you," Chris added, causing everyone to gasp.
"But why?" DJ asked.
"Let's just say he had some special caused in his contract that he is now in breach of," the host answered.
"But DJ was immune!" Victor protested. "What would you have me do?"
"I don't know," Chris answered with a shrug. "Maybe sabotage DJ like we told you to," the other three gasped again.
"So Sugar was right?" Heather asked in disbelief.
"Confession time," Kitsune said. "I kinda knew Sugar was telling the truth. Seriously guys, Victor's a terrible liar."
Victor sighed and stood up. "I apologize for my actions and I hope that you will forgive me," he told his allies. "Please know that had I not been contractually obligated, I never would have influenced your votes like I had."
"Don't sweat it," Kitsune said with a wave of her hand. "We can't help the things this show makes us do."
"And it's not like you gave anyone an advantage in the competition," DJ added. Victor, upon hearing their words, beamed brightly.
"I'm not okay with it!" Heather shouted. "What was the point in the vote if you were gonna boot him anyway?!"
"Huh," Chris said. "I did not think about that."
"So that means that I can stay and he can go right?" Heather asked.
"Not really, all votes are final," the host explained. "And even so, technically he was disqualified after you were voted off."
"Well you'll be hearing from my lawyers!" Heather threatened.
"Considering that his being here kept you in the game for like three more episode," Chris replied, "I doubt you have a case."
The camera cut to a long distance shot of the film lot as a frustrated growl from Heather shook the screen.
The scene flashed ahead to Heather and Victor getting escorted to the Lame-osine by Chef. "You'll be penniless! Jobless! Your name'll be mud on every blog from here to Cape Breton!" Heather yelled back at the host. "You think you were in trouble when Alejandro sued?! I'll make you wish you never met me!"
Victor got in the limo, Heather was thrown in by Chef, and the cook slammed the door shut. It sped off in a cloud of dust, and the shot cut back to the start of the red carpet where the host stood flanked by the two finalists. "DJ! Kitsune!" he announced, putting his arms around their shoulders. The two

The host rose his arms and knocked the two down in the process. "Tune in to our most controversial episode ever, of, Total! Drama!
(Roll the Crdits

The Gentleman and The Queen Bee both sat in the limo in an awkward silence. "So," Victor
"Don't talk to me," Heather
"Pardon me for attempting to dispel the tension," he replied
"Well I'm sorry," Heather said in frustration. "But I just lived through six weeks of torture, the guy I kinda have a crush on is head over heels with the most annoying person on the planet, and to top it all off I was just voted off. By you! So excuse me if I'm ot in the mood to talk. Especially considering if you'd done your job as a mole, I'd still be in the
Victor pursed his lips. "You do realize that even without my vote you still would have been voted off. Also, the fact that the producers had to hire someone to keep you on the show should tell you

2023.03.29 12:17 personanonymous How much do you manually do?

Im super into electronic music, and particularly interested in generative/effect heavy stuff. Think Fennesz, Oli XL, Lanark Artefax etc.

Recently I started to do some very simple patterns and basically rinsing and repeating them through effect heavy chains on the sidechain, allowing for delays/feedback to kinda wobble underneath and create these quite insane patterns, which I can resample and re-feed my effects chain. LFO's are king.

It took me ages to realise that simple music had all this underlaying 'textural' content, and it took me even longer to create interesting things by using these to my advantage. I beforehand used to draw in everything! I was trying to create professional sounding music this way and it was exhausting. I really underestimated the power of what a bit of delay, reverb and some preferred effect can do to a song to give it character. A knob twisting session can really give you so much detail, happy accidents and new ideas so quickly!

Im curious who else works in this way, or if I have just entered a new stage of development of production? Or do you guys literally draw in everything, every single bleep, hat?

I completely forgot the concept of play for so long, and I am so happy to be in a place where I can just fiddle with some automations and create some really interesting patterns and ideas. It was such a struggle the whole time trying to imitate my musical pillars, and now i realise what I need to do.

2023.03.29 12:00 sgnie I wish you were different

I want nothing more than to have a relationship with you, but I cannot stand the person you are.
You are most likely a sensitive person on the inside, but you hide it with cold and callous comments and behavior. You’re addicted to toxic masculinity. You make gross comments about girls and women. When I was 20 I had to overhear you joke with my uncle about my brother’s 16-year-old girlfriend being “a hot piece of ass”. I was in the same room watching TV with my teenaged female cousin, and I was raging inside.
You need to be the center of attention, and you like to say offensive things for shock value to prove what a big man you are. For example, we were out to dinner with some of your friends and you started excusing Hitler’s behavior. I know you don’t like Hitler, your grandpa came to the US to escape the Nazis, you just love sounding like a dick. You love proving what an Alpha Male you are, who doesn’t care what others think and who is impossible to offend. Then why did it make you so sad when you thought I gave you a dirty look that one time? Why does it still make you so sad that I never want to spend time with you?
You like to tell a story of how when you were a kid you peed on your brother from a tree for no reason and made him cry. You tell the story like it’s no big deal, a funny little anecdote. When I confessed to you at 18 that what my sister did to me during my childhood was mental and physical abuse (it is, and I have C-PTSD from it), you laughed in my face. You were practically sneering at me as you reiterated how you treated your brother growing up. You’re such an asshole.
You cannot admit that you failed as a father. No, to do that would mean admitting you failed miserably at one of the things you probably value most in your life, and that was to be a role model, a provider, a great dad, someone all your children admire and seek out for advice and protection. You are not my adviser and you are certainly not my protector. You failing to protect me from the awful abuse I faced under your nose led me to be further emotionally and sexually abused as an adult, from domineering men like you who refused to respect my boundaries and treated me as an inferior.
When I was little and I was crying you used to threaten to record me and broadcast it to the entire elementary school in the auditorium. I was too young to know it was a bluff. You would even pull out the camcorder. Over two decades later and I still experience emotional inhibition. Great job, Dad.
You’re a sexist. When the topic of “The Bachelorette” came up you made sure anyone without earshot knew how incredulous it was that men would be lining up to marry any woman. You were extremely overprotective when it was your daughter (screening a PG-13 rated movie for me when I was 16, for example), but when my brother’s 16 you make a disgusting joke about him needing a queen size bed for his “hot piece of ass” girlfriend.
You pretend like you screen my boyfriends by grilling my last one over things like his age and credit score (oh, my boyfriends know all about you before they even meet you) but the idea of me entertaining any opinion you have on them is hysterical. You actually think they’re the ones who need your approval? I only date men who are kind, nurturing, and feminist.
I’m mentally disabled and mentally ill, and I need your money to survive. You and Mom provide it. I have a relationship with my mom. I don’t have a relationship with you. You think this is unfair.
I’ve told you what you need to do to earn my trust. It’s really simple. Therapy. But no, that’s out of the question.
Why? To hear you tell it, it’s because you’re not the one who needs it. There’s nothing wrong with you.
The denial is so strong. You’re terrified. You’re terrified to need that kind of help, to be vulnerable. You don’t think I was terrified? When I started therapy at 8 I couldn’t even speak. The truth is, you’re more of a coward than an 8-year-old girl.
I don’t respect you, I don’t like you, and a part of me even hates you.
I want a dad. But I don’t want you.

2023.03.29 11:59 Aimless-Nomad Did Feminism Ruin Everything For Women? The truth is that feminism did not harm women, it wrecked men. (an article i came across written by a woman)

Orginal aricle can be found here
Feminism did not ruin everything for women. It undoubtedly ruined a lot, but it also provided numerous benefits to women in addition to the negative results. For a time, this obscured the truth.
The truth is that feminism did not harm women, it wrecked men. With feminists in charge of education and single mothers raising boys alone in front of cheering crowds while alienating fathers, how could the outcome be any different? Did you think all those departments of “Women’s Studies” were doing nothing? Did you believe it was just a friendly pat on the back for the ladies? No! They’re all working hard to modify laws, customs, and social norms to favor women over men.
Breast Cancer vs. Prostate Cancer; What’s the difference?
What do you think happens? The women will receive money and recognition. Did you know that men die from prostate cancer at a higher rate than women? Did you know that prostate cancer is entirely avoidable and can be detected early with frequent testing? Men, on the other hand, die by the tens of thousands because they fail to do the easy test. What happened to the publicity? Because prostate cancer affects guys, no one seems to mind.
What about reproductive rights?
Women can go into labor in the 8th month and decide they don’t want it, and it will be pulled out thanks to feminism. Gone. If a woman steals a man’s sperm or lies about her birth control, she faces no punishment. None, and if you bring it up, Feminism accuses you of despising children. As being a man, your role is to keep quiet and pay.
And the children’s rights?
Feminism has progressed beyond ensuring that mothers are considered to be the primary caregivers for their children to open misandry-man hate. Men are thought to be pedophile wolves. On a plane, men are not allowed to seat next to children. Men receive the bill and have to fight for weekly visitation, while women get custody and money guaranteed (if the men have money). Because of feminism, a guy has the same number of rights to his children as a woman.
The result?
As a result of all of this, and much more, men no longer have a family, so why should they? They only have as much access to their family as the woman allows.
Feminism did not ruin everything for women but for men, feminism damaged practically everything. Women are merely collateral damage, and the effect on females has been minor thus far, with the femmes getting along just fine.
Women Are Fussier Than Men
I am not going to lie to you. Women are fussier. More superficial and shallow. Having a job is advantageous; money is king. Most dating-age women, ages 18 to 30, are broke and have no idea what they’re doing in the bedroom. Because most guys are reluctant to talk to them, the beautiful ones should be treated as though they are more than just pretty. Those who do communicate with them behave in a clownish manner.
Things have changed as a result of the internet and social media. Women converse. If you’ve ever cheated on a lady or treated her badly, social media is not your friend. The internet teaches women how to pick up men. However, if you treat a woman well and share it on social media, it’s a win-win situation, a great PR.
Feminism Has Wrecked Modern Dating
In the sense that some women despise men, feminism has wrecked modern dating. Some certain women and men are more outspoken when it comes to criticizing a man’s self-esteem. You can’t listen to them, “You’re not a true guy or an overgrown child locked in adolescence” nonsense. Do you live at home with your parents? Approximately half of all young adults live with their parents.
They overlooked that if you systematically and purposefully trash one gender while giving all the advantages to the other, the men’s strategy is to check out when faced with rank inequity. It could result in a severe social collapse since it may be too late by the time most women recognize that “feminism is ruining everything for women.”

2023.03.29 11:58 Hypnogrow My first grow where I lost my mind

My first grow was crazy town First day 4 day power outage lol
Started in ffof which was super acidic, I had to get a soil pen google how to use it. Ffof was 4.5ph out of the bag wtf. Immediate problems lol. I freaked out and transplanted everything into Cocodelphia that wasnt an auto. I looked up drain to waste and decided to do that for some reason.
Built an autowater system after weeks of hand watering three times a day so they could be fed 5 times a day. Freed me from water jail 🙏. I topped like 3 or 4 times. The king tut foxtailed. The Alien Technology turned out. The King Tut ended up going to someone to make hash. I stunted all my autos. I learned some insecticidal soaps are bad. I learned how to grow clones from Alien Technology and did better with my clones than with the mother plant. I learned about maintaining a reservoir and so many other things.
I am so grateful to these first plants that suffered through my mistakes. It's crazy looking back at it, I had no idea what I was doing and made things really complicated.
Best lessons...less is more, the environment is never really dialed in and genetics can only do so much to overcome operator error lol.

2023.03.29 11:44 endlord79 My friends creepypasta

On a sunday afternoon when my parents were gone, I decided to grab a video recorder and binge my favorite episode “Any sport in the storm”. Except when I played the video it immediately cut to Luz chilling at her locker, I didn’t even know why they were in the human realm in their season 3 appearances, but since it was just the beginning of the episode I kept watching. Masha walked in and asked Luz where Amity and the gang were to which Luz told her that they were driving around town while she was gone, then it cut to Amity, Willow, Gus and Hunter in Camila’s car as a car behind them started to get closer until it fades to black with a massive explosion being heard in the background, for a second I heard Boscha’s voice but until I could get a better idea of the voice It cuts back to Luz as she comes home from school and turns on the TV only to be met with a news broadcast talking about a horrific car crash and the 4 victims who got caught in the flames, Suddenly Luz shuts off the TV as she starts crying while her mother comforts her with tissues. Before I can let out the horrifying shock of what I just saw Luz and Camila end up driving to a therapist, unlike the rest of the episode the scene was really calm, Luz was talking about the incident while also talking about how Eda and King sacrificed themselves to keep Luz safe. Then as the therapy session was going to wrap up Luz spotted Boscha in the hallway, when the camera pointed back to Luz who had a shadow smothering her face with only a white pupil and a massive grin peeking out of the darkness, suddenly Luz smashed the emergency box, grabbed the axe and lunged at Boscha as she repeatedly smashed her face in, each time the axe swung into Boscha’s face I flinched a little, after Luz was done her face was completely unidentifiable and Luz wasn’t looking so hot either, her eyes turned into black voids with nothing but a single white dot shining through the darkness, then Luz walked through the door as she started stalking the blonde girl at her school before chopping her head off, I decided I saw enough and tried to deject the disk but it wouldn’t budge, So I was forced to watch Luz as she committed several accounts of murder, at one point after she killed off some emo kid she hid into her house and started creating a pentagram, luckily the sound was cut off for this part so I didn’t have to hear what she was talking about. Then a portal opened to the demon realm as she stepped in and began the killing, the next scenes were more brutal than her other kills, she started killing off most of the Hexside students 1 by 1 including Boscha’s friends. Finally after Luz chopped Viney’s limbs off Bria started shooting at her with a glock she found in the human realm, suddenly they started running, as Bria was running through the town the radio started playing that described skara’s death, “ victim #1 eyeballs and skin were unable to be found, unidentified fingerprints were found near the corpse’s neck”. Bria runs into a dead end in an abandoned house, but before Luz could land a swing the door locks behind her as the building burns down, Bria manages to escape as they call the authorities. My heart finally calmed down, but when I started to take deep breaths Luz sprung up this time with taller limbs made of obsidian and jagged teeth and started killing the guards, suddenly before Luz could kill the final guard a title card popped up reading "Any massacre at midnight” as a depressing piano song played in the background. I was finally able to shut the TV off, but it didn’t even matter at this point. Ever since that day Whenever my friends talk about the owl house I have flashbacks to that fateful night. And it didn’t help that whenever I tried to watch “any sport in the storm” it just sent me to a screen that said “Sorry but the episode can not be found please come back another time” with a black background, and even when I pirated it I just got a very creepy portrait of Luz with a photorealistic pair of eyes and a small, white toothed smile that just kept saying “piracy is a crime”. I don’t really know how to end off this story, I don’t even have any tips on how to steer clear of this episode, I didn’t pirate it, I didn’t buy it from a weird man like most stories, I didn’t even play with an ouija board. But if you ever see this episode just turn the volume to 0, put a blanket over it and have a great sleep.

2023.03.29 11:36 Significant_Buy_2301 Lizzie might just be the most evil character in the show, don´t you think?

Yes, even worse then V. Because while V, is murdering out of necessity, even though she enjoys it, she still recognises that she is not okay and what she´s doing is wrong in episode 3.
Doll also, has her own sense of morality, where yes, she eats her fellow Workers, and isn´t above killing a few, but she still tries to prevent excessive suffering which is demonstrated when she opens the doors for the Workers to flee, as well as locks Khan out rather then killing him.
Lizzie on the other hand? She has absolutely NO morals, only following her twisted "beauty" standards. She agrees to Doll´s plan to kill V, because´s she´s hot, and than back-stabs her and backs out because V is hotter.
Not only that, in episode 2 she MOCKS doll after the latter tells her about her backstory. She also is willing to endanger the entire class just like that, for her "gorgeous" AS projected self. Like are you serious Lizzy? I get it she´s a bully obsessed with her looks, taken to an extreme. She´s the type of person that when dying, would praise her killer´s looks. But is it bullying when she wishes for Uzi to die, in the Pilot?
That´s another thing. She seems detached from death entirely in all the points I just mentioned, and I have another one. If she´s been "friends" with Doll, could she have seen the slaughtered workers in the kitchen? I mean, she conspired with Doll to kill V, she obviously KNOWS that Doll killed the previous prom queen candidates, who´s to say she didn´t go into the kitchen? If she was on Doll´s deeper secrets and didn´t question/do anything, then she´s officially the most mentally questionable individual in the show. At this point, it wouldn´t even surprise me, if she´s one of the AS hosts.
That´s why I proclaim Lizzie, the most evil character in the show.

2023.03.29 10:59 TooEdgy35201 Social conservatism has been practically banned from political discourse

Some of you will have heard about events around Scottish female SNP politician who talked about her faith. The hatred and malice with which she was confronted by the media and UK political establishment has shocked even someone like me who is against voting and parliamentarism in general. The poor woman talked about basic Christian positions which were still part of the mainstream as late as the 2000s. Unfortunately things have moved with lightning speed to the point that Christians face discrimination, exclusion and hostility. Mind you that England and Scotland still have national churches in union with King Charles III.
This brings me to the point about parliamentarism. To be part of the so called club of "grown ups" and to have a voice in the mainstream one must accept everything from late term abortion, state enforced euthanasia, pornography, prostitution etc. and GOD FORBID you show a single beep of social conservatism, then all bets are off and one is essentially degraded to a 2nd class citizen. The apologists of parliamentarism will claim that the attacks are from privately owned media publications and individual politicians, while the state itself still stays neutral in terms of worldview and will protect you from harm. That is simply not the case:
The state is very ideological and imposes its view with an iron fist on us, while saying that God has no rights and space in public discourse.
To me paliamentarism is fundamentally incompatible with sound conservative government principles. It will always degrade into one of the following things a) mob rule b) plutocracy, both are very undesirable outcomes. On top of that such a political system has shown ample of times that one often ends up with fudged coalition governments of 3+ parties which will only pass foul compromises and kick pressing issues into the next election cycle.
Historically conservatism was fundamentally opposed to the ideas, principles of 1789. Instead it favoured Monarchy which actively ruled the nation or some other form of ordered hierarchical principle. The UK, Spain etc. are in their state philosophy indistinguishable from parliamentarist republics as the Monarch is a mere ceremonial figurehead at this stage.
Given how parliamentarism has evolved one must admit that it is fundamentally anti-conservative and anti-Christian. As Christians we have no place in such a political system.

2023.03.29 10:31 Forever_Changes A possible solution for the awkward castling rules in Chess960

In many starting positions in Chess960, the castling rules are awkward. It seems like they were just shoehorned in to copy standard chess even if it doesn't make sense in the position, such as having the king move right when long castling in some positions or having the king fly across the board in other positions. In some positions, the king doesn't even move!
A possible solution is to just only use the Chess960 positions that have the king start on the e file. Since the rooks have to be on both sides of the king, the king and rooks will be positioned on squares that make castling make sense. I think there are about 198 positions where the king starts on the e file.
Therefore, I think it's worth considering Chess198. It's the same as Chess960 with the additional rule that the king needs to start on the e file. This could make castling make more sense in Fischer Random.
I'm not saying this is necessarily better than Chess960, just an idea to consider.

2023.03.29 10:20 LordLlamasaur Are character specific anoints more likely to drop if you play as that specific vh?

I'm trying to get a 200% asa anoint for king/Queen's call and the rerolls are taking forever. Should I play as a character with the least amount of char specific anoints to boost my chances?

2023.03.29 10:01 redditnathaniel Request: Quick 5 second clip/gif to celebrate breaking the longest playoff drought in any major US sport

The Sacramento Kings (kings) of the National Basketball Association are on the verge of clinching their first playoff berth in over 17 years, the longest drought in any major US sport.
The team has grown popular with its newest attraction this season as it lights a giant purple laser beam into the night sky every night that the team would win.
My idea for this clip involves the following source material:
Edits needed: Video trimmed 0:12-0:19 Green lasers changed color to purple lasers Planet before being destroyed overlaid with "17-year playoff drought" text Text disappearing as planet is destroyed
It's silly fun, post the result to kings and they'll love it. I just don't have the means to do so. Thanks!

2023.03.29 10:00 rayhollyx The Caffeinated Motorcycle (Spiritual Journey)

It's late. And it's that time again for me. And I have been pondering something for a while. A motorcycle to me represents not just a mode of transportation.
In my 5 years of being Free of Caffeine, 3 of those have been spent riding a motorcycle. At the time, I was actually looking at "Groms" because I wanted to take a ride around my block along the dirt embankments during the Covid Lockdown. I settled for a $1200, 40 year old, 250c instead.
If you would have told me, approximately 2 years later, I would be riding this small bike 40 miles into the local mountains, at an elevation of 5,000 feet, I wouldn't have believed. Albeit, at the time, it took baby steps. And a lot of balls.
In some respects, I had to "build up" to a feat like that. Some men, who have been riding for years, find these journeys just another walk in the park. For me, venturing up a mountain on a 250cc bike that weighs 270 pounds is basically a test of stillness. The ability to be mentally still. To be one with the mind, breath, and surroundings. A similar trip, 30 miles into barren wilderness with just 2 bottled waters soon followed.
With Coffee, came darkness.
I've lost something since I decided to partake. I did an experiment to see if it would help with dexterity, focus, weightloss, etc. The veil of spirituality soon became clouded. I no longer could see. In the midst of my experimentation, we went to the mountains for a family get-togther and a wedding. I brought my 40 year old beatup, 250cc. When I arrived, I found myself on some twisty trail-like roads being chased by 1,000 liter sports bike. I pulled over. The next day, hail, ice, and fog hit my visor, and for the first time in 3 years of riding I had a panic attack and pulled over to the side of the road. That was in January.
A week ago, I got the flu and was bed ridden for 5 days. I decided this would be the best time to quit Caffeine. My spirit was longing for that sense of power and peace it had once lost. These past 3 months have been bathed in a darkness I do not understand. A darkness that, under scientific standards, have been dubbed "Beneficial to health, prevention of Alzheimers, antioxidants, dexterity, focus etc." - I've read the wikipedia entries. I've seen the scientific testimonials of Caffeine's benefits.
But deep in the recesses of my mind, the fogged lens on my helmet, the sleet hitting me in the face, and the cold, mountainous road that induced a panic attack remained. Was it the sleep-aid and both caffeine that did it? The darkness bathed me. Stubbornly, angrily, I gripped the handlebars shaking, in the rain, and forced myself to ride 10 miles to the nearest gas station, visor barely visible. A 10 minute ride of absolute fear of death. Pulling over to the side of the road as I was battered with fog, sleet and rain.
As I went through having the flu, and continued the detoxifying of removing Caffeine from my mind, laying in bed with headaches, and aches, occasionally I would go for a drive, and walk around for a bit. Something strange dawned on my decaffeinated brain, which had been free of it's grasp for a few days. The trees swayed in slow motion as the sun set behind me. I stopped at a local church in my small town, and marveled at it's beauty and simplicity. "Caffeine is a psychoactive" they would say. I recall, passing through it's field of energy upon partaking it. Everything became elated. It is rumored ancient monks in the Arab world discovered Coffee and used it for spiritual purposes, to pray and meditate more stringently. I reflected on this as my reality was surreal, in the haze of fighting the virus, headache, yet bathed in a calm nostalgic serenity of my spirit once again at rest.
No hot liquid, to disturb my senses in a fervor to twitch, or move "for the sake" of moving. Or clean my room, and detail my toilets, and obsess over the minuscule smudged on my bathroom mirrors. Just the simplicity of the breeze, and my slowly decaffeinated mind passing through this vortex, this, once visited psychoactive experiment.
Today marks roughly a week now, and even though there is fatigue lingering from the overworked adrenals of chasing the morning high of first 40-60mg of tea, and "feeling tired still."
The peace is returning. The bags under my eyes are clearing up. And a warm lingering began manifest; and I was called once again to the familiarity of my home town, the side roads, and dirt trails I've been venturing since the Covid lockdown previously.
To Cultivate peace?
It is strange to me the better I've become at cultivating peace and clearing the mind, the more capable I feel of the daring feats. Culture would say the opposite. Things, like the X-games and Extreme Motocross have some thinking the way to go is "Monster Energy Drinks, Red Bulls," etc, to get there.
And maybe there is short term elation.. until the lack of sleep catches up with the cells..

A few days ago, I had a shitty headache and a deep feeling of drowsiness. The brain was signaling for it's fix. I took a nap, and got back on the road. Driving down the highway, the heavens and sky opened up to my perception for the first time in 3 months. "Oh yes. I forgot." I thought.
I was ever grateful to stare into the heavens, doing a steady 65MPH in my beat up old car. The sky, the clouds, and the sun beckoned me into heaven once again, blissfully. It makes me wonder the legitimacy of monks who claimed they used this for spiritual elevation, the scientists who tout the benefits of its effect on mind, and the 60% of the population that scramble, and fight, for a drop of it's black essence in their bloodstream every morning. Is this the proverbial "spice" that has been spoken about in "Dune" Novels?
The image of a Tree, and an old worn out bench some kids dragged up on some hill called to me again. Suddenly the idea of getting back on my bike, and riding to the spot for a peaceful study was very appealing. I'm passing through some kind of vortex, but I'm not sure what that is. Can it be, maybe even 5mg is the sweet spot? or has it always been 0g? My sense of smell returns. The pollen of Marches sun emanates to my nose as those sweet honey-smelling flowers hit me.
My natural state. Not afraid. Welcomed, to the saddle. Warmth emanating my backpack, my study books, my boots, and the blissful freedom of riding again all of a sudden seemed so appealing.
What was this black cloud that passed before me, in this experiment ? The nervousness, the ill temper, the road rage, the impulsivity. For the sake of progress? Because our ancestors supposedly doused themselves with "mead" as peasants for the king and their courts, before the caffeinated Renaissance that took Europe in the 1600s? I guess that is for the individual to find out..

2023.03.29 09:59 CitizenSnips4 Digital Daily #15 Written Summary — March 26th [Week 3 Nominations + POV Spoilers]

This is a summary of Digital Daily #15 (March 26th). Detailed are events that happen after the POV comp leading up to the POV ceremony. Please no spoilers beyond this digital daily in the comments.
Pre-Digital Daily: Kuzie nominated Santina and Hope. The winner of the POV is Hope.
Will Kuzie make a big move this week? Or do what Ty wants… Digital Daily #15 kicks off in the HOH room, where Kuzie speaks with POV winner Hope. Kuzie asks him questions so she can figure out who her replacement nominee will be; assuming Hope uses the veto on himself, the replacement nominee will sit next to Santina. During this convo, Hope confirms to Kuzie that he was the 4th vote to keep Roberto in the house. Later, we learn from an unhappy Daniel in a talk with Anika that Zach is Kuzie’s likely replacement nominee and target. Anika wants the replacement nominee to be Ty, as she sees Ty as the glue that keeps the guys alliance together. Later, Hope confesses his 4th vote secret to Renee. Meanwhile, Anika approaches Kuzie with an attempt at getting Ty on the block in stead of Zach. Kuzie reveals that Ty thinks of Anika as disposable. Anika fails to get Kuzie to consider Ty as a target, as Kuzie only gives reasons to target Zach. Later, Ty approaches Kuzie to hear her plan; they become frustrated with each other, as Ty desperately wants Zach, and to a lesser extent, Dan, to stay off the block, but those are Kuzie’s main options right now. They talk in circles but neither budge. After this discussion, Ty goes to Hope with the idea of Hope using the veto on Santina, not himself. Ty then tells Zach of his possible nomination, which rattles him while he’s trying to work out.
Going into detail…
0:00:07 - HOH - Kuzie Speaks with the POV Winner
Kuzie asks Hope what his thoughts are on Renee. Hope: “she’s very trustworthy.” Kuzie asks if Hope is close with Shanaya. Hope says in every conversation he’s had with her, they are close, but it’s never been game-related. Kuzie: “so Shanaya would not be horrible to get out, but don’t touch Renee.” Kuzie says she likes Renee, but she wonders why 2 people have put her on the block already; what did the other HOHs see? Kuzie: “then I’m looking at Dan and I’m saying ‘this guy has absolutely no plans for me in his life.’” Kuzie says the sensible thing for her would be to backdoor Dan this week. Hope: “between you and me, about the whole JM situation: I wish Ty never saved Anika off the block. Because I feel like JM could have done a lot of big in this game. I wish he stayed.” Hope thanks Kuzie for putting him on the block because his POV win yesterday is motivating him to win another comp. Ty literally barges in without knocking. Kuzie apparently gives him a face because he walks right back out. Hope also won $5,000 in the comp. Hope asks Kuzie if she trusts Daniel/Anika. Kuzie trusts that they are genuine, but she’s not sure how hard they will play. Hope calls Daniel a real one: “outside of here, I want to be friends with him.” Kuzie trusts that Jonathan is a good person. Hope: “I don’t know how he is going to survive in this game.” Hope says he (Hope) is with Kuzie from now on; he says again that this POV win has given him a new purpose in the house. Hope: “whatever move you make, I’m with you 100%.” Hope about his vote for Roberto: “you know the truth about that obviously.” Kuzie: “yeah.” Hope: “I couldn’t tell anyone.” Hope says he could tell that Kuzie knew when she said she “didn’t care” who voted and they shared a look. Hope says he changed his vote last second. Kuzie: “spilt milk.” Zach barges in (without knocking); Hope motions for him to stay and that they are done talking. Zach asks Hope when he wants to lift. Hope leaves and Zach stays with Kuzie.
0:11:16 - Parlour - Anika & Daniel React to Kuzie’s Plans
Anika tells Daniel why she thinks Ty should be the next target: without Ty, Santina/Zach won’t work together; Ty also has influence on Claudia. Daniel says Ty has to go, but Kuzie would never do it: “there’s no fighting it anymore, it’s gonna be Zach.” Daniel says he will not vote Zach out over Santina, even if it destroys his chance at alliances. Daniel says if they get rid of Zach and keep Ty, they (Daniel/Anika) are still gonna be the targets since Ty won’t come after Claudia and her friends. Anika says Ty would go after Renee and Shanaya. Daniel asks how she knows. Anika says because Ty knows Renee is close with Claudia, so he wants Renee to leave before they get closer. Anika remembers to tell Daniel about a conversation she had with Ty last night: Anika says Ty approached her about why she was feeling stressed, and started asking game questions. Anika responded: “you know what Ty, I can’t trust you enough right now to tell you that” and added that Ty is always talking game with Santina and Zach, not her. Anika stresses that Ty is the person that connects that big alliance. Daniel says he had a relationship with Santina, but then she blew them up as a group, and now they are keeping her? Anika says it’s about perspective. Daniel: “I get it, I get it.” Daniel says he is upset at Santina because her pitch to get rid of Zach was that she doesn’t like what Zach is doing with Daniel: “I’m a grown ass man. Everyone needs to stop protecting me.” Daniel says on a game-level, he’s pissed. Daniel reveals that he is conflicted about the information Santina told him; either Santina is 100% lying or Zach can’t be trusted at all. Daniel says the house is going to be so boring (without Zach). Daniel says he just needs a day of misery, and Anika leaves.
0:19:36 - Purple Bedroom - Talk Later?
Anika joins Hope/Renee in the bedroom. Daniel enters momentarily then leaves. Renee leaves, and before Hope exits he tells Anika they need to have some one-on-one time. Anika agrees.
0:22:10 - Hot Tub - Socializing
Daniel joins Shanaya/Claudia/Zach outside.
0:22:39 - Library - Hope Confesses to Renee
Hope/Renee continue to talk about Hope’s age. [honestly I’m getting bored of his “what age am I??” talk]. They play pool and focus on the game for a while. Then Hope says he is just going to play an honest game. Hope: “I feel like you know me.” Renee says she has a pretty good understanding of who he is. Hope: “so I guess you know the truth about that 4th vote…” Renee: “was it Zach?” Hope: “…” Renee: “it was you?” Hope says it was a pity vote. Renee: “oh, well at least you’re honest about it.” Renee asks if Zach/Ty know. Hope says yes. Renee asks if the 3rd vote was Vanessa. Hope says no, he doesn’t think so [it was]. Renee asks if the guys were mad when Hope told them how he voted. Hope says he just explained that it was his friend: “I’m not good at lying.” Renee says Hope cannot give a pity vote moving forward, starting this week with whatever Kuzie wants to do.
0:32:31 - HOH - Anika Tries to Sway Kuzie
Anika approaches Kuzie about nominating Ty instead of Zach. Kuzie says one of her reasons for wanting to get rid of Zach is “not that I want to weaken Daniel,” but it would make Daniel a better ally for them since he won’t be on the fence. Anika tells Kuzie about her conversation with Ty last night; Ty tried to get Anika information from Anika and Anika went off on him about not being able to trust him. Anika says Ty said he stopped talking game with Santina after week 1; Kuzie says that’s not true. Anika goes on to say that Ty said Anika was so smart and he wants to work with her etc. Kuzie: “Anika. He has said your name to me. He said if he gets HOH you are going on the block.” Kuzie tries to reassure Anika by saying that if those 3-4 people (Zach’s side) want to target the 5-6 leftovers, they would target Kuzie first. Kuzie says she told Ty straight up that she doesn’t care if her nominating Dan will hurt Ty’s numbers. Dan enters to listen to Kuzie’s music while he does cardio. Anika looks annoyed. Dan goes to the bathroom area and Kuzie/Anika continue whispering. Anika says that if Ty stays, he will control that side by being the glue. Kuzie asks Anika to look at the game morally. Kuzie says Zach angers her, Ty scares her. She would happily lose to Ty, not Zach. Anika asks if Kuzie told Ty about nominating Zach at the upcoming POV ceremony. Kuzie says no. Kuzie adds that Zach has been telling Renee “you’re lucky you have a pretty face.” Kuzie asks what kind of a stupid comment is that. Anika says Ty will come after herself though. Kuzie says Ty will target Renee and Kuzie before Anika. Kuzie says Zach is grimy. Kuzie says people have been telling her that Ty will be against her after this move. Anika brings up what Kuzie revealed earlier: “Ty really suggested to you my name? Like as a pawn or the target?” Kuzie says as a pawn. Kuzie: “like you’re not a target but you’re disposable to him.” Jonathan enters for a minute then he leaves. Anika whispers that Hope needs to go too; also Kuzie should also be careful of Renee. Kuzie repeats herself about Zach playing a dirty game. Anika agrees that Zach can go this week but Ty has to go soon. Kuzie agrees to that. Anika says once Zach and Ty are gone, it will be an even playing field for everyone. Kuzie says if they come to her and threaten her about not having any physical players on her side, she doesn’t care; Jonathan is a physical player, and if Kuzie can talk to Santina well enough, she could be on her side. Anika advises Kuzie not to tell anyone about her plan to nominate Zach. Anika leaves the room.
0:54:52 - Living Room - Ty Wants to Talk
Kuzie leaves the HOH room. Ty sees her leaving and tells her to get her “ass back in there.” He wants to talk with her. Kuzie says she is making her rounds so she will get Ty when she comes back to the room. They split up. Ty whispers to Santina that he will tell her what they (Ty/Kuzie) talk about later.
0:56:54 - Hot Tub - Comp Talk
Renee/Claudia/Ty/Daniel hang out outside. Small talk about the HOH comp and previous comps.
1:01:24 - Backyard - Working Out
Shanaya/Anika work out in the backyard while Zach/Hope hang out nearby. They talk about about working out. Dan is also working out in the backyard. Anika helps Shanaya with her lifting form. Hope whispers to Zach that early in the game he told Anika that he would keep Vanessa around because she cooks. Ever since then, Anika has been cooking big breakfasts. Hope laughs.
1:17:15 - HOH - Kuzie & Ty Debate
Kuzie and Ty meet to talk. Kuzie says she is a calm person until she gets irritated. Ty says they are the same person. Kuzie says Zach is trying to make her feel stupid; in no world can anyone convince Kuzie that taking out Renee is a good HOH move. Kuzie declares that Renee will not be going on the block. Kuzie says at this point, she is looking at Dan or Zach as the replacement nominee. Kuzie says Kuzie/Ty can protect each other, not each other’s people; Kuzie will always vouch for Ty, but she can’t promise she will protect Zach just because they are friends. Kuzie mentions she was talking to Daniel last night, and Daniel burst into tears at the thought of Zach going on the block. Kuzie asks Ty to put his game into mind, and ask himself if he would make a weak move like Renee during his HOH week. Ty says everyone is expecting Renee to go up because she is an easy option since she’s been up twice. Ty defends Zach for pushing the Renee idea because everyone was thinking it anyway. Ty warns that if she puts Dan up, Kuzie will lose Zach. Ty tries to float the idea of evicting Hope instead, but Kuzie reminds him Hope isn’t eligible since he got POV (assuming he uses it on himself). Ty says he would consider voting Dan out if he was on the block, he wouldn’t consider voting out Zach. Kuzie says if she decides to nominate Zach, she will have the numbers with or without Ty’s vote. Ty says it’s too early to get Zach out. Ty argues that you don’t have to make big moves on an HOH to make big moves in the house. Talking in circles, Ty is desperate to change Kuzie’s mind about Zach or Dan. Kuzie doesn’t budge. Ty says Renee is an indirect threat to Kuzie. Kuzie: “I’m not going for indirect, I’m going for direct. I’m going for direct threats.” Ty tries to scare Kuzie by asking what happens if she nominates Dan, Santina gets evicted, and then Dan becomes HOH next week? Kuzie: “let’s not focus on Dan, let’s focus on Zach.” Ty: “obviously I’m closer to Zach, so I’m not gonna offer him up to you.” Ty asks his question again. Kuzie says “then that’s okay.” Kuzie adds that she didn’t come here to hide. Kuzie: “if this was your HOH, you wouldn’t consider half the things you are saying.” Kuzie says Ty is the biggest player in the game but she won’t come after him because he is straight-forward; Dan gives Kuzie nothing, and Zach gives her lies. Kuzie says as smart as Ty thinks Zach is, she promises she can think that same way and be an asset to Ty. Ty asks if Kuzie wants to go to the end with a bunch of weak players. Kuzie says everyone doesn’t know everything about everyone in the house; some people might think Ty is playing a “weak game” if they don’t know what he has done. They have a moment of loud frustration; Ty tries to twist Kuzie’s words but she doesn’t allow it. Ty asks Kuzie to keep her calm with him. Kuzie says Renee isn’t connected to any guys in the house, so Kuzie can possibly “work” Renee down the line. Ty says Kuzie shouldn’t nominate Dan then since he is connected to Shanaya, by that logic. Kuzie: “don’t bring that in here. We aren’t talking about Dan.” Ty accuses Kuzie of not being real right now. Kuzie gets frustrated: “Ty. We’re not talking about Dan right now. I’m talking about a theory about Renee. Don’t twist that into talking about why I shouldn’t nominate Dan.” Ty: “you’re getting defensive.” Kuzie: “yeah I am, because it’s not time to bring up Dan.” Dan walks in and offers to clean Kuzie’s bathroom [worst possible timing lol, they are both pissed]. Kuzie asks for some more time alone with Ty and he leaves. Ty apologizes for cutting Kuzie off. Kuzie says Renee isn’t connected to any guys. Ty: “what about Hope.” Kuzie: “it’s not romantic.” Ty insists that doesn’t matter. Kuzie insists Renee is “workable”. Ty: “okay Kuzie…” Kuzie says still has a day to think about it, but the Renee thing is probably not gonna happen. Ty: “alright Kuzie…” Kuzie: “but I have my own game to play so you can’t get angry—” Ty: “I’m not angry!” [he definitely is, trying to play cool] Ty says its a bulls—t move if the reasoning is to “not follow someone else”. Kuzie says if it’s a bulls—t move then that’s what it’s gonna be. Ty says he is getting frustrated because he is seeing certain things that don’t align with their team; he sees Kuzie on his team and this decision doesn’t add up, at least not right now. Ty says Shanaya is a girl that gets infatuated with someone and then acts a fool, but Claudia is clearly not like that [really?]. Kuzie says if she puts her trust in Shanaya, Kuzie will get burned in the end because Shanaya will choose Dan. Ty says Claudia thinks of Renee as disposable. More talk about Dan/Shanaya/Renee. Eventually Kuzie brings it back to her decision: “I can promise you, but I can’t promise your friends. So you might hate me…” Ty says Daniel/Anika are disposable but he would want to target Shanaya/Renee before them.
2:00:40 - Backyard - Father Talk
Zach and Hope discuss the relationship between parents and their children. Hope says he isn’t close with his father.
2:03:31 - Pink Bedroom - This Isn’t Over
Ty makes his bed. He whispers: “you’re not about to f—k up my game, believe that.” He goes searching for Kuzie. Daniel says she went to the DR.
2:05:12 - Pantry - Pantry Hug
Ty finds Claudia in the pantry. They hug. Claudia asks how his talk with Kuzie was. Ty: “we’ll see.” Renee enters and Ty leaves.
2:05:43 - Kitchen - Ty Plans to Plan
Ty tells Dan that they are going to have to figure something out, and that they will chat later.
2:06:46 - Purple Bedroom - Bedroom Stuff
Dan gets dressed in the bedroom.
2:07:02 - Backyard - Ty’s Brilliant Plan for Hope
Ty just told something to Zach/Hope about what Kuzie said. Zach: “I knew it. I knew it.” Ty says he has to talk to Hope later, so Zach leaves to let them talk now. Ty asks when Hope “wants to go home”. Hope says he wants to stick around as long as possible to be a shield for the group when it matters the most. Ty says he might need Hope to do something crazy this week: use the veto on Santina (leaving Hope himself on the block). Ty says he will tell him if he gets the numbers to keep him safe. Ty: “I’m not gonna make the decision until I know.” Hope agrees. Zach returns to the area.
2:09:29 - Backyard - Ty Warns Zach
Ty and Zach walk away. Ty tells Zach that Zach made things worse for himself by talking to Kuzie last night. Ty says Kuzie was distraught with the way Zach was talking to her. Zach is shocked that he came off as aggressive. Ty tells him that Kuzie is considering nominating Dan or Zach. Zach: “me?!” Ty: “I already told her ‘you’re not f—king putting up Zach’.” Ty says Kuzie isn’t even considering Renee. Ty says worst-case scenario is that Dan goes up. Ty: “I might need to get Hope to use the veto on Santina.” Zach, still in shock: “she’s that mad at me?” Ty advises him to apologize to Kuzie for being aggressive in a natural setting; he shouldn’t approach her or it will look obvious that Ty told him. Zach continues working out with Hope. He whispers: “f—k man, is that the end of my game…?” And that’s a wrap for Digital Daily #15!

2023.03.29 09:55 Ok-Goose-6320 How many custom AI art models might a game project need?

Hi, I'm researching for a game project that's likely to involve art for characters, locations, combat scenes and events. We're wondering if creating our own AI models is viable, after looking at some tutorials.
To give an idea of the sorts of art we're thinking of, the game King of Dragon Pass, or similar RPGs would be good examples.
For artstyle, while we would prefer one main art style, the team is also excited to make use of the AI's ability to shift between different styles. Ideally, major characters will remain consistent.
- - - - - - -
I wanted to ask advice about how many models may be needed. For example, if we want to have several consistent characters in a variety of poses, would we want one model just for our characters; or one model for each major character?
It would be nice if we could train one model to do everything from locations to special events to fights to characters... but I'm presuming that's not feasible? There are questions about AI art in general, since it has a lot of problem with weapons and fight scenes, and often feels like herding cats.
We're also wondering if we'd need to hire a specialist in creating AI models/art, or if this'd be possible for us when we're pretty naïve to generating art.

Thank you very much for helping us to understand this matter more.

2023.03.29 09:24 OutspokenFox Knight's Paradise About the Fall of Man

(On YouTube:

Life is like an eternal match between
God and his most cursed adversary!
Both fully conscious of each’s presence
And aware of the plans of the other.
It is like an eternal chess battle
Between God and Satan that arose from
The origin of the abyss’s birth;
Whereupon God made light and birthed the Earth,
And with his first move created Adam
And from his rib Eve, where he foretold them
To exist in Paradise without end.
These two souls, most blissful and ignorant,
Are the twin sacred Knights, male and female,
Of the match of this daring chess clash.
They are the Knights, most right, tall, and true
Who will guide us on past this journey through.
On this first move of God they rested, then
Crept about and roamed the Garden they dwelled,
Heeding God’s command and staying true to
Their ordained path, blind ’n’naïve to their sight.
Yet Satan with his cunning and guile
On his first move resolved to take vengeance
Upon God for his wretched punishment.
And thus sent he his Queen, who is his wife
And daughter, who is also him, to sneak
Into the Garden and like a horrid
Serpent approach the Knights and deceive them,
With intent to lead them astray towards sin,
To fall from grace and from Paradise with
Intent to anger God for his almighty punishment towards him.
The Queen of Satan says to the woman:
You will certainly not die for eating of the fruit!
But rather, like God, know good and evil!
The woman listened to the serpent in
The garden, and she handed the fruit to
Adam who was with her.
The Knights of God ate the forbidden fruit,
Gaining, indeed, such power as promised.
And upon this moment that it occurred
Lucifer smiled dearly, filled with delight and
Joy at God’s Creation’s fall from glory.
So was Satan’s move in this match of kings:
To lead astray mankind towards sin and death.
Yet now it is God’s move,
And He is most displeased.
God is aware that Satan has led mankind towards sin
And understands he intends to use this
To induce man to further its wages
And bring to Earth the wrath and flames of Hell
To exact revenge upon Him and His designs.
God is aware the man and the woman,
The two Knights He has infused with His spirit,
Will be unable to resist against
The temptations of sin, and will fall
Unto oblivion by Satan’s actions.
So He requests unto His court a volunteer to save fallen Man,
And His own Son accepts His call.
In this match His Son represents the Queen
Of God, who He sends to sacrifice in the place of mankind.
He sends His Queen, most powerful of all
Pieces, to sacrifice Herself for the
Two Knights that are mankind, who now in their
Arrogance dare to decide by themselves
What moves to perform without questioning
First God nor His almighty plan, and thus
In their folly led themselves to ruin.
God’s Son dies for the sins of Man; The Queen
Of God sacrifices Herself to evade
The chosen Knights of God from Satan’s wrath.
And God’s Knights, man and woman, rest for now,
Saved from full woe by the tip of God’s grace.
Yet now it is Satan’s move,
And he is most displeased.
Satan is aware that God has sacrificed His Son
In an attempt to redeem mankind for their sins.
He is still in possession, unlike God,
Of his Queen, His wife who is also his
Daughter who is also him.
He has used his own Knights to fortify
His every position, in contradistinction to
The bold and offensive moves of God’s Knights,
Who because of their boldness are enterprising
In dispersing themselves widely
To different parts of the world.
So dispersed are they in their boldness, that
They neglect to attend to their core in
Favor of busying themselves with more
Interesting and perplexing subjects,
Leaving the core of God and God’s King who
Represents Him unattended to because
Of His distance from His Men.
Satan is aware that God is thus vulnerable, and
That His core and His King are open to exploitation.
He therefore sends his Queen to sneak into
The Castle of God, and to His most close
Angels whisper into their ear, to His
Rooks that were His Angels he said so craftily and
Ever so cunningly and reminiscent
Of that first tempting of Eve:
You can see how God treats you!
Look at how he has treated you thus far!
Look at your pieces!
Your Knights who are mankind so bleak and lost,
Your Bishops who are mankind’s shadows and
Shadow so full of despair and hopeless
Avarice, your Pawns who are Nature and
Her dominion so full of destruction
And neuroticism, Look at yourselves,
O Rooks of God, who are indeed Angels,
So full of blind obedience and stifled glory!
Does this not all concern you? Frighten
You? Anger you? Madden you? Bewilder
You? To see how God treats you? Ever so
Terribly and cruelly? Without regard
For the nature of being and existence
As He rejects utterly the passions
Of every soul that lives?
Does this not concern you so?
For you can see how God treats you! Look at
How He has treated you thus far!
And the closest Angels of God listened
To the Queen of Satan and liked what she said.
So they agreed to help Satan infiltrate God’s position
And thereupon destroy Him using the
Powers of knowledge of good and evil
Possessed by Man in an act of final deception.
They cripple God’s defenses and surround
His King with swift fury, And dagger themselves
At Him full of menacing and threats towards His name.
Yet now it is God’s turn to move.
God sees His defenses have been crippled
And that He is surrounded on all sides
By the work of His own dear Creation.
God is aware that Satan has turned Man
Against Him by telling Man of the Nature of this world.
He is aware that His Son’s sacrifice
No longer has any effect,
Since His sons and daughters no longer accept Him.
Knowing this He sits alone in Heaven
With all his infinite wisdom and plans.
He is aware that any attempts to
Save mankind with divine means will be of
No avail, since humanity will no
Longer accept divinity as the
Sole explanation for the source of Life.
So unto the world he once again announces a call
For a volunteer, only this time of
Human origin, of a man born not
In a manger but in a castle of
The most true ideals that
Man resolves himself to believe in.
And it is once again timely answered.
Except it is not God’s Knight who answers,
But God’s Bishop, Man’s shadow and shadows,
His concealed darkness, and his curséd side.
The Bishops of God do accept this call,
And take it upon themselves to redeem
God and humanity upon themselves.
The Bishops of God, man’s hidden shadow,
Prepare themselves to undertake this task,
Sanctifying themselves all to great lengths
To make themselves worthy of such glory. (audio, with visual)
