2023.05.30 21:54 ThrowRAirnbru Fed up living like a monk

I originally posted this relationship_advice and got some good replies, but some were quite brutal. Wondered how people here would view the situation.
So me (42m) and my wife (39f} have been married for almost 10 years, together for 12. Relationship has been great up until a couple of years ago when we started to become less physically intimate.
She developed some other symptoms which eventually ended in a diagnosis of early menopause. She started HRT around 6 months ago which has alleviated some of the symptoms but not all. Her libido is now virtually non-existent.
We've always had a physical relationship, and I'm finding it really hard to live without this now. We have sex maybe once a month and to be honest it feels like pity sex most of the time.
I've given up trying to initiate anything now. I feel unloved and unwanted.
She said to me last night (as I was about to fall asleep) that she was sorry she doesn't put out much. She said it along with something else, I just ignored the comment about not putting out as it was too late to talk about it and I was tired. But it woke me up as I thought about the phrasing because it's not something she would normally say - "not putting out" indicates that she doesn't really want to but is doing it more from a sense of duty or obligation.
I don't want that. I want someone who genuinely wants to get physically intimate because they want to, and because they want to with me. Actually struggling to cope with this. I find myself looking at couples out on the street and wondering how many times they do it, how the guy must feel to lie in bed with someone who gets horny, etc. Quite soul-destroying actually. .
I'm not out to blame anyone for this situation. It is what it is.
I can't help the situation as much as my wife can't help the situation. Running her a bath and lighting some candles ain't gonna cut the mustard. Doing more around the house (I already do more than 50% of everything given I work less than she does and it works well for us), again won't change things.
We have a good connection and can talk about anything and everything. We spend time together. We laugh at and with each other. There's no other friction in the relationship that I'm aware of. We actually get on like a house on fire, she's my best friend.
The lack of physical intimacy and desire is taking its toll now. I can't just make my feelings disappear, and I don't feel I should be shamed just because I want/need one of the most basic of human connections.
Any advice on what to do next would be appreciated

I will be attending graduate school this fall, and I do not have a place to live. I am from Ohio and at this point it’s too late for graduate campus housing. (I didn’t apply). What other options do I have off campus wise before the school year starts?
I just need to find an apartment before august.

2023.05.30 21:44 TheUncrownedStag Damon Morrigen, Heir to Crow's Nest

Discord Username: FireCrimson#1915
Character Name and House: Damon Morrigen
Age: 24
Gift: Champion
Skills: Swords (o), Knightly, Defender, Tactician, Cautious
Talent(s): Singing (x2), Hunting
Starting Title(s): Heir to Crow's Nest
Starting Location: The Feast
Family Tree: (work in progress, some placeholder names or unnamed characters)
Dead Kinsman: Almost everyone in the family tree.
Damon Morrigen was born in the 183rd year of Aegon’s Conquest to Jack Morrigen, the youngest son of Theo Morrigen. Normally, that would be the end of any mention of him. The son of the fifth son is not usually worth much of note. But unfortunately for the House of Morrigen, history and cruel fate decided otherwise.
The first four years of Damon’s life, he does not remember. And without the foresight of days to come, neither does anybody else. He had no siblings, though a few cousins, and enough uncles to fill up a hand with fingers. And an aunt, though she had been married to William Baratheon before he was born, so Damon knew nought of her.
It was during the Red War that Damon’s fate began to settle into place, with the unofficial birth of the ‘Curse of the Crows’ during the Red War in 187 AC. His two eldest uncles, Alester and Harlan, were slain, and the third eldest was crippled to the point he could no longer have children. Theo Morrigen, his grandfather, was distraught. Even without what was to come, this would be enough to put an old patriarch to tears.
But unfortunately, one bad war does not a curse make. The sons of uncle Harlan found that their boat sank in the sea during a particularly rough storm, though rumors persisted for awhile that it was not the storm, but a man with the ruthlessness to put a hole in the boat, with Richard Morrigen as the usual culprit. But there was no evidence to ever link him to any such crime, so the rumors eventually died down, as the curse of the crows continued.
It was uncle Selwyn who was next. Still young enough to be a bachelor, he reportedly drank too much and choked on his own vomit. This appeared to do Theo Morrigen in, as when he went to sleep after the news he never woke up, with his wife following along within weeks in 190 AC. Of Theo’s children, there were only three remaining. Richard, the current eldest who was crippled in the war, Jack Morrigen (Damon’s father) and Ravella, who was married into Baratheon.
There was peace for little Damon for a time; no more funerals, until 194 AC, when his parents died. A sickness. One could say it swept through the family, though that would exaggerate, for it was only those two and uncle Richard who had caught it, giving him another lifelong health issue to contend with, leaving him coughing blood.
Lord Richard, the last of the lord’s sons, sent his heir to Storm’s End to squire under Lord Baratheon. For Damon, these were his roughest but perhaps most tenderly remembered years. No more familial death to deal with. He got along with his aunt’s family, and even saw Lord William as a second father. However, his worst traits were starting to develop. He was becoming anti-social and paranoid, continuously worrying about when his time would come. To a child, the whims of death were chaotic; he put them in order by convincing himself it would be his time eventually, and likely sooner rather than later.
At 18, in 201 AC, he was knighted, and went home to Crow’s Nest. In celebration, he was given Loyalty, the Valyrian steel longsword of House Morrigen. In one of his uncle’s celebration events, he met Sylas, who became his confidant and informant. A lowborn man, he had nonetheless gained the trust of Lord Richard, and was allowed to remain as a servant, of sorts, and was one of the most valuable men Morrigen had at their disposal.
The next few years, Damon remembers as games. Lord Richard, well aware that Damon was the last hope for their house to continue in the male line, tested him again and again. Sometimes in his ability to defend himself, sometimes in his ability to rule. Some rumors suggested that his ability to continue the line was tested, but they were quashed.
Now it is 207 AC. Some must wonder if the curse of the crows will continue, or if the young heir will manage to halt it in its tracks.
Character Name and House: Sylas
Age: 34
Appearance: A stooped, balding man. He doesn't seem particularly interesting or notable.
Gift: Ruthless
Skills: Espionage, Torturer, Subtle
Talents: N/A
Starting Title(s): None
Starting Location: With Damon.
Lord Richard Morrigen - Subterfuge

2023.05.30 21:42 delmarman 2022 started it and 2023 has been the worst year of my life. It's all declining & I don't see a way out

I've struggled with depression all my life yadda yadda.
Getting Covid, missing a vacation (that the rest of my family went on), and the loss of my uncle last November to cancer.
At the same time realizing that I am unfortunately not cisgendered, it's impossible to deny that at the least I am nonbinary if not trans. Was already part of the LGBTQ+ community in being gay and now I get to struggle with even more confusion.
I start taking zoloft at around this time. My father and brother both take it and have had some success.
Working through all of that. December go spend Christmas with my partner's family in a different state & immediately fall ill to a stomach parasite, giardiasis. A stomach parasite which I had years ago in college, and having it before made me more susceptible. No idea where it came from but I got it.
I get the pleasure of shitting myself multiple nights in a row during Christmas time along with some vomiting here and there. Near the end of the vacation my entire partner's family knows how sick I am & about literally everything I've gone through.
Return to work in January after securing a new rental house with my partner and cousin. Never did like my job in tax and it became much more demanding as it was my second year. I struggle with my work I struggle with everything.
My partner and I fought multiple times over the past few months and were both exhibiting toxic traits. We love eachother so much but I am so, so bad at understanding myself and the moment something goes wrong I always want to bury my head in the sand.
I had always smoked weed recreationally but my consumption goes way up in January and beyond. My work was fortunately hybrid remote - we started receiving many more hires and the office was full many days. Sometimes I didn't have a choice but to work from home. I hated my job so much and any work for it made me miserable. I take a lung-busting dab to make it more tolerable for me. Rinse repeat.
It's not hard for me to WFH 3 out of 5 days. On the days I go into work you best believe I am starting the day with a dab, showering, and then taking another dab before I drive in to work. And you know the first thing I would go to when I got home from work.
After a few disciplinary calls due to poor work performance I get fired somewhat unexpectedly on May 9th. I never did see a future for my job, could never be fucked to do anything more than the bare minimum required to do the job. There goes my first job out of college, my "career", my 74k a year paying job with all those nice benefits I'll never have again.
Since then I've been trying to figure out what the fuck I'm doing. I was happier at first because I really hated my job. But I have no ambition or passion for much of anything.
My mom tried to offer me another accounting style job at her school which I initially was interested in. But I talked about it with my partner and he gave the perspective of - when shit hits the fan and you have to make a decision and pick yourself up, do you work and grow or take a handout? I was told by my therapist that him thinking this way is a growth mindset. Anyways I poorly told my mom I didn't want to do it after essentially psyching her out and being flippy floppy as I always am. She's not happy with it and I feel a distance to my family right now.
My partner and I are doing better. He's going to therapy too finally, I've been at it for years although it may be hard to believe and finally he's on it too. He's in a good spot right now but I don't think he knows that I still feel this way.
The people nearby don't listen to me much anymore. I talk a lot, I always have had a lot of words and a brain that is overactive perhaps. I can talk a lot and I get that it drowns others out so I'll be quiet. A lot of the times the things I talk about aren't interesting to people anyways, and I often lose the fight in trying to be heard in any conversation. The voice that is always missed and not heard is mine, it feels like.
The interests I have, the things I like to talk about, the people around me don't engage in it as much anymore as they're growing tired. My tendency to ask questions and want to talk about things, and sure sometimes I'm not perfect. My partner told me that this housemate said they're not going to respond to me when I ask questions like that anymore. So I'll just keep my mouth shut.
The games and interests I try to spread and suggest to others, no real interest or desire. I voice myself when we try to find things to do or suggest ideas when we want things to do and they don't seem appealing to others. I'm just going to keep my mouth shut.
I've told everyone about my pronouns, about not wanting to identify as a man anymore or be referred to as one. And it still happens all the time in my home. Good man, are you a man?
It just really feels like nothing wants me to be here. I can't kill myself though I don't have the courage. I have a bunch of hydromorphone from a tonsillectomy last year. I could down that whole bottle and I just know it would do me in. And what stops me is the inevitable pain and the fact that I probably would regret it, statistically most people do. I tried one hydomorphone pill for ??? reason recently and it gave me stomach pains.
So if I really did want to end it all, which I probably don't, it would need to be a gun. Immediate. I would feel horrible for those around me, so yes it probably would end in a note on my desk, me turning off all my location services. Driving into a local forest or mountain range. Hopefully that way it doesn't have to be my family or loved ones that find me, just a random unlucky stranger.
It won't happen, I don't have the courage. Sadly enough that doesn't make me feel any better. All this to be such a victim. I love being a victim as you can tell.
I don't know, I just feel like I lived my life trying really hard to be courteous, nice and notice things about others. I hate being unheard, I hate being chosen last, I hate trying to speak up in a conversation and being ran over by others who talk louder and more determinedly. I try to consider aspects of them and I'm not perfect, one of my huge issues was taking my partner for granted and I'm working on it.
I'm really trying to work and grow and am still pursuing therapy, biweekly, but I've stopped taking zoloft as of this sunday. Idk. I'm still having all these thoughts and fuck, I started taking zoloft while working at my piece of shit job. I'm tired of having to worry about when I take it, about forgetting. I'm tired about feeling naseous and worrying I'm not eating enough when I take it because it does make me throw up.
Idk at the end of the day the creeping feeling that the misery I'm in, this whole situation I'm in, is my fault. I could have worked a lot harder, I could have chosen to not take some of these occurrences personally, I could have laughed in the face of despair and worked out of it instead.
But instead I'm unemployed. I think the version of me that my surroundings want is a quieter me. One with less fantasy and imagination. One that keeps to themselves and doesn't pitch in or incite. Just sitting and being there. And idk I don't think I can be that person, but being told the way I am now is bad or wrong is just making me want to completely hide myself away like I always do.
The people in my life obviously have to walk around eggshells around me in regards to what they can say and can't say. I'm so bad at taking any critique because I get insanely defensive and view any comment as an attack. It's almost impossible for me to not want to give some form of attitude. At my worst I just suck. I take it personally when it really isn't. Wish I wasn't like that either.
Idk I'm just writing at this point. Don't worry I won't KMS. But anything you can say to help would by nice I guess
TL;DR : My life has been on a steady decline due to mistakes of my own making. I got fired from my job and have no ambition or grindset to return. It doesn't feel like the people in my life want me around and they don't respect my recent gender struggles. I'm too scared of the pain of ending my life so I just wallow and fail at the things I try to do. This has been the worst year of my life and if something horrible happened to me I would be happy it was my last.

2023.05.30 21:41 Sola_Sista_94 Kokichi Time: Part One (Fanfic)

"C'mon, c'mon, c'mon..." Kokichi muttered with concentration as he played one of his favorite games, "Seven Nights At Frank-o's," a video game about surviving a whole week as a security guard at an amusement park while avoiding deadly animatronic clowns. He was doing well until one of the clowns came out of nowhere and jumpscared him.

"SHIT!!" he screamed in frustration. Suddenly he heard a knock on his door. "It's open!" he briefly called out as he continued to focus on the game. Himiko entered the room with excitement.

"Nyeh...hi, Kokichi!" she said, wrapping her arms around him.

"Hey, babe," Kokichi muttered without looking at her.

"What'cha doin?'" Himiko asked, kissing his cheek.

"Playing 'Seven Nights At Frank-o's,'" Kokichi mumbled.

"I think I got something better than that!" Himiko exclaimed cheerfully.

"Pfff...nothing is better than this," Kokichi replied, keeping his eyes glued to the screen.

" about these?! " Himiko said, pulling out two tickets from her pocket. "Two tickets to...DeepBlueSea World, the biggest aquarium/ocean-themed amusement park this side of Japan!"

"Does it involve killer animatronic clowns?" Kokichi asked.


"Then, nah," Kokichi replied, briefly shaking his head. Himiko slumped her shoulders in sadness.

"Kokichi..." she mumbled. "Don't you wanna hang out with me, anymore?" Kokichi looked at her, then paused his game. He stood up and faced her.

"Well...Himiko," he began. "Listen, don't take this the wrong way, but...we do almost everything together, y'know? We eat together, go to school together, play pranks on people, and go on magic quests together..."

"Yeah?" Himiko said in a small voice with a small shrug.

"Basically, we're always together," Kokichi concluded.

"Well...yeah," Himiko said. "We're boyfriend and girlfriend. I thought we always do things together."

"And don't get me wrong, it's fun," Kokichi said, giving Himiko a comforting pat on the shoulder. "But...every once in a while, I just need some Kokichi time, y'know?"

"Oh, but...what about DeepBlueSea World?" Himiko asked quietly. "I really thought you wanted to go." Kokichi shrugged in thought.

"Well...I'm sure you can find someone else to go with you," he said. "What about Tenko? I'm pretty sure she'd love to go with you!" Himiko shook her head sadly.

"No, Tenko opened up a training class for her Neo-Aikido," she replied.

"Oh..." Kokichi mumbled, rubbing his arm uncomfortably.

"Nyeh...I guess I could bring Sonia with me," Himiko suggested. "She hasn't been to DeepBlueSea World, and it is a popular attraction in Japan."

"Hey, yeah! That's a great idea, Himiko!" Kokichi exclaimed. "I'm sure she'd love that!"

"Yeah...okay..." Himiko replied, trying to give him a smile, but she felt too upset to do so. She shuffled towards the door, when Kokichi gently grabbed her shoulder.

"Aw, come on, HimiCocoa Bean, don't be sad! It's only for today," he said. "Hey, we're still going to the movies on Friday, right? For the premiere of '13 Going On 14?'" Himiko brightened a little, and gave Kokichi a small smile.

"Yeah...yeah, you're right," she said. Kokichi smiled back and hugged her, squishing his cheek against hers as he did so.

"Cool!" Kokichi replied. "Well...see ya later, Monkey Buns," he said, ruffling her hair.

"Bye, Kokichi," Himiko replied, waving goodbye. Kokichi waved back to her as Himiko closed the door.

"M'kay, back to the clowns!" Kokichi mumbled excitedly to himself as he picked up the controller and resumed his game. Outside the door, Himiko sighed sadly, but forced herself to cheer up.

"Nyeh...he said it's only for today," she said to herself. She took a deep breath and headed over to 7th Island House. She knocked on the door, and Mikan answered.

"Hello, Himiko," she said in her usual small, mousy voice.

"Hi, Mikan," Himiko replied. "Is Sonia home?"

"S-Sonia? Y-Yes, let me get her for you," Mikan answered, then dashed away to retrieve Sonia. A few seconds later, Sonia appeared in the doorway.

"Himiko! Hello! How are you doing?" she asked cheerfully.

"I'm okay, I guess," Himiko said.

"Do you need my assistance with anything?" Sonia asked.

"In a way," Himiko said. "I need you to assist me on a trip to DeepBlue Sea World." Sonia's eyes lit up and sparkled with joy.

"Oh, my!" she exclaimed. "I have never been there before! I think a day at DeepBlueSea World would!"

" cap," Himiko replied with a small smile. Sonia giggled.

"Fo' sho!'" Sonia said.

"It'll be the bomb-diggity," Himiko added. Her smile grew bigger.

"It's gon' be phat!" Sonia said, throwing her arms out in front of her.

"Tight!" Himiko said, throwing her arms out and bending her knees.

"Lit, bruh!" Sonia said, pointing at Himiko.

"Off the chain!" Himiko said, pointing back at her.

"Fresh to def, yo!" they both said in unison before bursting out into fits of giggles.

"Himiko, I was not aware that you also knew cool words," Sonia said with a large, happy smile.

"Well...some of those are pretty outdated," Himiko admitted. "Nyeh...but they're still fun to say."

"Mos' def!" Sonia agreed. "Well, shall we go, then?"

"Yes...let's," Himiko replied with a smile. Sonia smiled back at her as the two walked together to the bus stop.

2023.05.30 21:33 CreditPuzzleheaded94 Physical indie games

Hey everyone. So recently I just got back into collecting video games. I used to collect retro games up until 2013, had quite the collection, but lost it all in a house fire. I’ve been collecting again recently and I’ve got a decent collection started again. I do have a question though. I want to start buying indie games for switch and ps5. I like that they are cheaper, so I’d like to start buying a lot of them. But I don’t quite know where to look to purchase physical indie games. I know limited run sells then and I just made my first purchase there, but I am aware you usually don’t get your games from there for almost a year sometimes. I was curious, does anyone know a good website or websites where I can start purchasing physical indie games.
Thanks in advance all!

I come here in desperate hope someone may be able to help.
I just moved into a house with a theatre (great!) and the surround sound system got me very excited.
Then I went to connect the speakers to the media player. Before then I had not thought about the fact I have no idea how to do that. I followed the wires through the ceiling and realized they went down into the wall. After about half an hour of being confused I found out they were behind a panel! Finally, with all the components I needed… still not better off than before.
So here’s what I got: Projector mounted to ceiling (aux and HDMI ports)
Amazon fire stick box (optical audio and LAN ports)
Surround sound system with 5 plugs
One big speaker with the 5 corresponding ports (I believe) and an LAN port
I attached photos of all those. What I need to happen is the audio that’s currently playing from the projector when I watch something on the fire stick, play from the speakers. HELP!!
Thanks in advance for any responses 😁

As the title states, I've inherited my grandma's everything after her death. I'm in Ohio, do I have to go through probate if the house was left to me in a transfer on death designation affidavit? I'm the sole beneficiary named in her will and on the affidavit. I also live out of state and only have less than a week left to handle what I can for the time being.

2023.05.30 21:19 digitalUID My pitching is under performing for some inconceivable reason

In my fictional league, I took over a team last season that was slightly above .500 W%. I cleaned house a bit and offloaded some bad contracts, while bringing in some younger prospects with lots of upside. While I don't expect big improvements, I expect them to play .500 or better. Currently, they're at .463, so worse than last year despite the upgrades.
My pitching staff was fairly mediocre. I brought in some veteran mid-level talent to solidify the starting rotation. My bullpen is primarily composed of 26-28 year olds with ~65-70/100ish ratings across the board. While a few of them are maintaining a sub 4.00 ERA, many of them are 5.00 or more. These stats are the same for my starting rotation, with a couple of exceptions.
My player ratings dictate that these pitchers should be performing much better than they are currently. I've been on a bit of a losing skid, and it's almost 100% because of pitching. I brought up some young prospects from AAA to hopefully help light a fire under their arses. I'm also looking at my pitching coach as part of the issue, but there aren't any decent upgrades at the moment. In the offseason, I'll likely replace him when there are better options available.
Have you had this happen where several of your players are performing well below their ratings capabilities? I'm playing real-time 2023, so I'm about 50ish games into the season. It's gonna be a long one if these guys can't turn it around. What are some tricks to boosting performance? Should I send some under performers down to AAA to work out their kinks? Is it time to start making some trades? Can I fire my pitching coach and operate without one for now?

2023.05.30 21:09 On_Wings_Of_Pastrami [Landlord - US CA] Lease construction

I'm starting to rent out my house long term in California, and was considering tweaking my Ohio lease, but with CA laws being so much nuttier, I thought it best to contact a lawyer and have them draft me up one.
I contacted two off of Yelp. The first one said that I can either have their personal lease (he said it's a "good lease"), and he'll just edit it to all my specifications and that would be ~$500. Or he would charge me $200 to download the California association of Realtors lease, and then make modifications to that one which would cost me $700-$800 more in addition. He made it sound like this was the better lease if I want to be more careful. He said it was the difference between eight pages for his lease, or 13 plus pages for the other one.
The second lawyer just said it would be $300. I went with that one. The least he sent me is the California association of Realtor's lease. He filled it in with some of the information I gave him, and then copy pasted some additional language that I requested for my Ohio lease into some addendums that still have the California association of realtors branding at the top.
Is this lease something I have to license? That's what the first guy made it sound like. If not, why does everyone make it sound like you should hire a lawyer to create your lease in California. If this lease is basically the gold standard, and all I have to do is check a few boxes and fill in information it seems silly to involve a lawyer.
Last question , since it appears pretty standard, is there anything that's not in this lease that people want recommend adding in addendums?

2023.05.30 21:05 CherimolaGrape Can you ruin a healthy (non BPD) relationship by being too codependent?

I've always known I've been codependent. My codependency went into overdrive when I was with my BPD because she got what appeared to be depression after a traumatic event with one of her kids. In the beginning she would legitimately ask me for help with things and thank me often "I don't know what I'd do without you" "I think I would have offed myself if it wasn't for you". I did it as I thought it would be temporary. I knew she loved me and didn't feel like I needed to help her in order to be loved. It was more like she'd ask me for help with something seemingly small and then it would suddenly become my responsibility.
For example, I work in Healthcare and I'm good at speaking to doctors and advocating. She has a fear of medical professionals, so I was happy to go with her to appointments and make phone calls. I then became her medical advisor, I'd remind her to take pills and tried to find her a replacement psychiatrist when hers fired her.
I didn't think she would love me less if I did this, but I was happy to help her feel 'taken care of' in an area that she struggled with.
Other times there were things that I saw around the house that just needed to get done. Her two kids were involved, so it was more complicated. She essentially stopped taking care of them and so they'd come to me and ask for things they needed. Again, I didn't do it so she'd love me, but more because I personally felt uncomfortable not meeting the kids needs. I didn't want to judge her because she was depressed, but I also couldn't ignore the kids like she did.
She told me they were a lot more independent than they let on. She actually accused me of setting them back by doing what I did for them. We had the kitchen set up so they could feed themselves, but sometimes the 6 year old needed something microwaved or needed cheese cut for her crackers. She wasn't tall enough to reach the microwave, she wasn't strong enough to cut a block of cheese. I guess I could have told them just to eat what they could reach, but it seemed unfair that they didn't get anything hot or cheese with their crackers until late afternoon when their mom came downstairs.
I eventually started complaining more and getting resentful. I was direct with my partner about my overwhelm. I gave her lots of opportunities to help me but she never followed through. She'd start a task like cleaning the bathroom and then end up spending the whole day decorating it.
She told me that we could hire a maid, but I ended up having to look for one. There were very few good maids in our area and we didn't have much luck with them. We also had to get the kids to clear their toys off the floor so the maid could vaccuum, so this became another thing one of us had to do.
Sometimes I'd ask her for help with something like emptying the dishwasher or bringing in groceries from the car. She would get her autistic son to help me with these tasks, which meant I had to be on him to do the task or do it properly, so it was still work for me.
I found myself asking her for help in indirect ways because I was worried about making her feel bad. She would catch on and call me manipulative, but I found it awkward barking direct orders to another grown adult to take care of their kids or do basic tasks.
Finally, she accused me of 'disabling her' with my help. She said I 'changed the way she did things' so that when she had to take over again she had no idea where to start. I feel like a healthy adult would understand that I had to adapt things in a way I could handle them by myself. If I was her I would just slowly start to develop my own way of doing things again.
Does anyone have any experience with this? She told me that my codependency ultimately affected my mood and made me miserable to be around. She's probably right, but I feel like a person without BPD would step in and take up their role again when they felt better. If she had told me one day "don't worry, I'm taking care of all the grocery shopping from now on" or "the bathroom is my job moving forward".
I feel like I did everything I was supposed to do. I asked for help, offered opportunities to accept help, sought therapy for myself, let go of things that weren't perfect or essential, hired help and then when all that failed, I took responsibility to get my own place because I could feel that I was getting resentful.
She ultimately discarded me because she said I was controlling and neurotic. She's not entirely wrong. I feel like I did everything in my power NOT to be that. I feel like some people live years and years with a miserable codependent spouse. I feel like as soon as I noticed the problem I took steps to fix it within weeks/months. Our relationship was only 2.5 years long and this happened towards the end.
Did I take the right steps? Should I have called it quits earlier?

2023.05.30 20:55 BCA1 Narcissistic grandmom and great aunt…a rant

My (26M) grandmother (GM, 85F) has recently taken a sharp turn health wise. She is still lucid and able to take care of herself for the most part and even drive.
I live ten minutes away from her, and after the death of my fatheher son, I have for the most part been the primary caregiver up until recently, when my great aunt (GA, 82F) stepped in without us asking a few months ago. I have taken it upon myself to visit GM at least once per week for the better part of a decade, cut grass/do housework, bring a meal, etc…but my grandmother (and great aunt) have recently been shaming not only me but my mother (60F) for not doing enough.
We are in shock. Not once has the great aunt called us letting us know that she has been taking care of the house or GM, despite us seeing her frequently. GM has not told us what she needs done or how we can improve, and even went as far as lying about her true health issues to us to make them seem not as bad. I found this out after her recent hospital admission when I called my great aunt and essentially harshly interrogated her on what the issue was (long term heart failure apparently) and finally she told me after nearly an hour of pressing. Backsided comments from my GM recently have also had me questioning why I am even taking care of her, ranging from personal attacks to basically firing me from cutting her grass as “those new people I hired do so much better” to attacking my new girlfriend who she has never even met.
We have personal lives, obviously, but even me taking a weekend off to go to my grad school graduation sent shockwaves throughout the family. I was kind enough to visit GM in the rehab center and not only sneak her outside food, but to walk in in my graduation gown. After around half an hour GM and GA told me verbatim (through a nurse) to “take my graduation stuff and get the hell out”, which I was shocked by.
What can I do better? Should I even do things better when she continually has either denied my help or been deceitful? I suggested that she get LifeAlert (which she did) and hire an in home nurse (who she did but then fired; she refuses to sell her house and live in an assisted living facility because she “hates people”) but I’m at my wits end with her.

2023.05.30 20:55 Revenge_served_cold8 Caught my fiancé cheating and ruined his life and those of his APs. Who says revenge doesn't pay?

I met my ex in 2012, right after he turned 20 and I had just turned 30. I had only dated and been with women exclusively until I came out as bi-sexual at 28. Let’s just say the year I was 29 was a busy year making up for what I missed out on. It was mostly casual hookups (yes, safe) and I did try dating 2 different guys for a few weeks, but it just never worked out or got serious. I kinda figured that I’d probably end up marrying a woman or not getting married at all because I just didn’t see myself catching romantic and sexual feelings for a guy.
Then I met Ryan. From the first date it was just like the only other time in my life I had fallen in love…butterflies, constantly thinking about him, wanting to spend every moment with him. He fell for me hard too and we became an item, though he did say while he considered my bisexuality a turn on, because he had a thing for straight guys, it also gave him pause because of my desires for the opposite sex and his concern it may lead me astray. I thought about it and understood it was a legitimate worry, but assured him that I couldn’t even think about anyone else because I was really into him. Note: I knew he was the one by the end of the first month and I was in love, but I wasn’t going to say these things too soon and risk scaring him off.
On our first date he admitted to me that he was legally blind due to a genetic disorder and that it was progressive and eventually he would only have a sliver of his peripheral vision. He immediately said he understood if I didn’t want to see him again because no other guy had wanted to date him and be his driver all of the time. I grew up with a brother in a wheelchair who never learned how to walk or talk due to misdiagnosed meningitis at 6 months old back in the 70s. I told him that and said that what my brother had was a severe disability, so in my perspective, his blindness had no effect in my feelings and that always being the driver was a small sacrifice just to be with him.
The next 3 years were bliss. We brought out the best in each other. My family who was surprised, but very supportive when I came out, adored Ryan and treated him like family and said that I acted happier since we’d been together. When I met him he was working part-time in retail and had done very poorly in high school because he lost a lot of his confidence as his vision deteriorated. I told him that one thing I did insist on was that he do something with his life because he had too much to offer and that I would help. He said that he’d wanted to be a teacher but didn’t think someone with limited vision could teach….nonsense. So I put him through community college for 2 years, then 2.5 years of a local university and finally the 1 year teacher certification program as required by California. I drove countless miles and paid hundreds in public transportation costs for him, never blinking an eye or complaining.
We’d been together for 7.5 years and were engaged to be married in October by the time he was in his last semester of his teaching certification which involved him student teaching at his former high school with his favorite teacher from his days in school. Then the pandemic hit and schools closed. Fortunately he’d had enough hours in the classroom that he would still qualify to be certified after the Governor issued a waiver via executive order. On the 3rd day of the stay at home order in March my life crumbled when I innocently found out he had cheated on me with an ex all because he handed his phone to me to show me something on Instagram. I accidentally fat thumbed the back arrow when he gave it to me taking me back to a list of all his messages. I looked and recognized the name of his ex as the second message, dated a week ago. I clicked on it and my heart sank. Directions to my house, pictures, dirty talk, and reassuring him not to worry about me because he had my location on my “Find My Friends,” just in case I came home from work.
I immediately started screaming demanding to know everything and he admitted to having his ex over twice for sex and that they didn’t use protection (his ex was engaged to his gf during this, adding another victim). Then he admitted to sleeping with his straight but curious recently single cousin (by marriage) twice, again no protection. Finally he admitted to sleeping with a supposedly straight guy he and many of my cousins went to school with who I told Ryan I really didn’t like him or want them talking because I didn’t trust him. Since they were never close friends I didn’t feel like this was a big sacrifice or that I was being too controlling AND I assumed that he knew why I (and all my cousins) felt that way, but didn’t bother repeating it. The reason was after high school at age 20 this guy was convicted of sexual assault and penetration with a foreign object against a 16 year old girl and had gone to jail and required to register as a sex offender for life. Apparently my ex was the only person in his graduating class that hadn’t heard that news. All of this happened in my home while I was working.
We spent the whole weekend crying with me asking over and over why and him repeatedly crying and saying he just didn’t know and that he felt terrible. Monday comes around and anger started being as common as sadness and I made a comment that said I was going to pull all the phone records going back the 3 years that AT&T kept them (for a fee). Only when he heard that did he admit to one more guy. Some random named Frankie off the gay hookup app Grindr who was the first guy he cheated with and continued to casually hookup with for nearly 2 years with the last time being in February (the month before).
He told me how it started. Get this – it was the DAY AFTER his graduation with his BA in May 2018 and he was drunk from celebrating and wanted to have sex. I too had been celebrating with him and said I was too drunk to perform and said I’d make it up the next day, then passed out asleep on the couch. Apparently he was “angry horny” because he downloaded Grindr, chatted with this Frankie fellow and arranged to have sex in his car in a church parking lot across the street from our condo (which happens to be across the street from a school…this fact is important later), all while I slept on the couch. All the times they hooked up after that was again in my condo while I was working or visiting a friend for the night up the coast (he used to love going but started saying he couldn’t occasionally because of “homework” and “studying.”
I absolutely lost it, told him to get in the car and I drove him to his family’s house so he could tell them what he did so they understood why he was moving back into their house. While he was in the house I was in the driveway on the phone with AT&T ordering the 3 years worth of detailed call/text logs, then made an appointment to be screened for STIs. I also changed his number (he’d had it for years, but I took it over and added it to my plan 2-3 before because his parents were tired of paying it), then suspended his service, deleted his social media and changed all his passwords so only I would have access to his cloud. I also called the bank and issued a stop payment on his final tuition check that I had sent to the certification program the week before and hadn’t hit the bank yet. Before deleting his social media, except Facebook, I took screenshots of the entire Instagram conversation with his ex and mailed the conversation to his fiancée, who deserved to know so she could see a doctor too. His family was very religious and had kicked him out in high school for 3 days when he tried to admit he was bi and only took him back in when he took it back. Needless to say, she ended it, he got kicked out. ONE DOWN.
He came back out to the car and we went home. I took his house key and told him to say goodbye to our 3 pets and get packing. The entire time he packed I studied those phone records to find out dates, times and if there was anyone else he was leaving out. He answered every question I asked and it was then that I discovered that the sex offender and he had only had oral sex in my home and that the actual sex was in the same parking lot he screwed the Frankie guy in.
The wheels started turning and the next day I went over there and sure enough spotted a camera. I spoke to a secretary at the church and informed them about a registered sex offender having sex in their lot and that not only was it a violation of his parole for indecent exposure, but that he was not allowed to be that close to a school and I provided the date. I was in luck! They had a digital two year loop system that started deleting day by day after it had been retained for 2 years +1 day. It was April 2020 and he first cheated with Frankie in May 2018 and the sex offender was in April 2019. I told them I was filing a police report and that probation would require a copy of it eventually. They said they would save the file and allowed me a thumb drive of both days to submit with my police report. Within a month the sex offender was locked up again. TWO DOWN.
I also filed a police report against the Frankie guy. The police said it was a relatively minor infraction but since it was across from a school playground and skate park they would follow up but there would be no jail time. I researched the hell out of Frankie and called him to confront him. He was smug and admitted to knowing about me the whole time. What he didn’t know is that I had found out he had a job that required a security clearance and he had several judgements against him and collection agencies had been looking for him. I didn’t know why they couldn’t find him and just garnish his wages, but it ends up he was Hispanic and had two last names and was a Jr., plus he frequently by his middle name Francisco, Frankie for short…so he got lost in the paperwork confusion. I sent a letter to the collection agencies providing his employer and current location and contact info and then sent a copy of the police report about misdemeanor indecent exposure for which he pled guilty and it was a fine with community service (not considered a sex crime). His wages did get garnished, but only for two paychecks because the misdemeanor was enough for him to lose his security clearance and get fired. THREE DOWN.
Then I contacted Ryan’s family on his mother’s side pretending to be him from his Facebook account making sure they knew he had fucked his cousin. It spread through the family like wildfire and soon his cousin was contacting me because he couldn’t get a hold of Ryan to ask why he would expose what they did. I just laughed and said you shouldn’t screw your cousins, especially when they’re engaged and that he’d messed around in my house, so now it was my turn for payback. FOUR DOWN.
Lastly, I had already stopped payment but since he was so close to finishing I was sure his family would bail him out and pay the university. Like I said, indecent exposure is usually a slap on the wrist type misdemeanor. However, I remembered some of the paperwork he signed to be a mandated reporter that you could lose teaching certification for “documented acts of moral turpitude.” I sent a copy of both police reports from the parking lot with still shots from the security footage clearly showing Ryan’s face to the school district he’d been student teaching in and a copy to the Commission on Teacher Credentials. FIFTH AND FINAL DOWN!
Admittedly, I did all this out of anger but he shattered my sense of self-worth and made me incredibly bitter and untrusting after years of being generous and supporting him. Everywhere I looked in the town I thought of Ryan and the cheating. I felt a terrible energy in my condo knowing it all happened there. I stayed 9 months and watched all 5 of their lives self-destruct. Then sold my condo (making a nice profit) and relocated to the PNW to start over. One thing that is sad is I found out just recently that his ex-who’s fiancé broke up with him ended up committing suicide several months after I moved. It is too bad that his family was so closed minded to turn on their own son, but in the end, it’s not my fault that he cheated on his fiancé by coming into my home at my fiancé’s invitation to cheat.
TLDR: I emotionally and financially supported my ex through college and his teacher credential program for over 7 years only to discover he had cheated on me with 4 different guys, one of them the day after he graduated and then occasionally for nearly two years in my home while I was at work. I took my revenge: My ex lost his career before it even started and our relationship, one AP (affair partner) lost his job and had bill collectors after him, another lost his fiancée and was kicked out, a third was humiliated when his entire family found out he had sex with his cousin and the fourth was put in jail for a violating probation. Lesson: Don't Cheat and Deceive.

Home inspections are a vital part of the real estate process, providing potential buyers and homeowners with a comprehensive assessment of a property’s condition. These inspections aim to identify any existing or potential issues that could affect the safety, functionality, and value of a home.
In recent years, thermal imaging has emerged as a valuable tool in conducting thorough and efficient home inspections. By detecting temperature variations, thermal imaging can uncover hidden problems that may not be visible to the naked eye. In this article, we will explore the importance of thermal imaging in home inspections and how it can benefit both buyers and homeowners.
Understanding Thermal Imaging
Thermal imaging utilizes infrared technology to capture and analyze temperature patterns emitted by objects and surfaces. It works by detecting the infrared radiation emitted by objects, converting it into a visual representation called a thermogram. The resulting image displays variations in temperature, with warmer areas appearing as brighter colors and cooler areas as darker colors.
To perform a thermal inspection, a qualified professional uses a thermal imaging camera. These cameras are equipped with special sensors that can detect and measure infrared radiation accurately. They are designed to capture and interpret temperature variations, allowing inspectors to identify potential issues that may be otherwise hidden from view.
The Importance of Thermal Imaging in Home Inspections
Identifying Hidden Issues
One of the primary reasons thermal imaging is crucial in-home inspections is its ability to detect hidden issues. Many problems, such as insulation deficiencies, air leaks, and moisture intrusion, may not be immediately visible to the naked eye. Thermal imaging can reveal temperature differences that indicate these problems, enabling inspectors to pinpoint their exact locations.
Insulation deficiencies: Inadequate insulation can result in significant energy loss and increased utility bills. Thermal imaging can quickly identify areas with insufficient insulation by detecting temperature variations along walls, ceilings, and floors. This allows homeowners to take corrective measures and improve energy efficiency.
Air leaks and drafts: Air leaks can significantly impact a home’s comfort and energy efficiency. Thermal imaging can reveal gaps and cracks in the building envelope, as well as areas where drafts are entering or escaping. By identifying these issues, homeowners can address them promptly, reducing energy waste and enhancing indoor comfort.
Moisture intrusion and water damage: Moisture intrusion can lead to mold growth, rot, and structural damage. Thermal imaging can detect hidden moisture by identifying cooler areas caused by water absorption or leaks. This early detection allows homeowners to mitigate the damage before it becomes extensive and costly.
Enhancing Electrical Inspections
Electrical issues pose serious safety hazards and are often difficult to detect visually. Thermal imaging can help inspectors identify electrical faults and potential fire hazards by detecting abnormal heat patterns. Overheating electrical components, loose connections, and overloaded circuits can be quickly identified using thermal imaging. This early detection can prevent electrical fires and protect the occupants of the home.
Identifying Plumbing Issues
Thermal imaging can be instrumental in locating plumbing issues that are not immediately apparent. It can detect hidden leaks behind walls, ceilings, or floors by identifying temperature differences caused by moisture. By pinpointing the precise location of leaks, homeowners can minimize water damage and reduce the risk of mold growth.
Thermal imaging is also valuable in evaluating the efficiency of radiant heating systems. It can identify areas of heat loss or malfunctioning components, ensuring optimal performance and comfort within the home.
Detecting Structural Anomalies
Thermal imaging can help uncover structural anomalies that may not be visible during a traditional visual inspection. It can detect heat loss or thermal bridging in walls, windows, and roofs, indicating potential insulation issues or energy inefficiencies. Additionally, thermal imaging can identify foundation cracks or areas of excessive moisture, providing early warning signs of potential structural defects.
📷Advantages of Thermal Imaging in Home Inspections
Thermal imaging offers several advantages over traditional visual inspections in the context of home inspections:
Non-invasive and Non-Destructive: Thermal imaging is a non-invasive and non-destructive method of inspection. It does not require physical contact with the surfaces being examined, minimizing the disruption to the property and reducing the risk of further damage.
Time and Cost Efficiency: Thermal imaging enables inspectors to identify issues quickly and efficiently. It can detect problems that may otherwise require extensive manual investigation or even invasive testing. By streamlining the inspection process, thermal imaging saves both time and costs for homeowners and buyers.
Comprehensive and Accurate Assessments: Thermal imaging provides a comprehensive assessment of a property’s condition. It offers a visual representation of temperature differences, allowing inspectors to identify multiple issues simultaneously. This comprehensive approach ensures a more accurate evaluation of the property’s overall health and helps prioritize repairs and maintenance.
Enhanced Safety and Risk Mitigation: Thermal imaging can identify potential safety hazards such as electrical faults or overheating components. By detecting these issues early on, homeowners can take appropriate measures to address them promptly, minimizing the risk of accidents, injuries, or property damage.
Limitations of Thermal Imaging in Home Inspections
While thermal imaging is a valuable tool, it also has some limitations that need to be considered:
External Factors Influencing Accuracy: External factors, such as weather conditions, can affect the accuracy of thermal imaging. Factors like solar radiation, wind, or reflective surfaces can distort temperature readings and impact the interpretation of the thermograms. Therefore, it is essential for inspectors to consider and account for these factors during the inspection process.
Interpretation Challenges and the Need for Expertise: Thermal imaging requires expertise in interpreting thermograms accurately. Identifying potential issues and distinguishing them from normal temperature variations can be challenging, especially in complex building structures. Inspectors with specialized training and experience in thermal imaging are better equipped to analyze the results accurately.
Limitations in Identifying Certain Issues: Thermal imaging is not a foolproof method for detecting all types of issues. For example, it cannot identify mold or asbestos directly, as they do not emit significant temperature variations. Additionally, certain hidden problems, such as structural defects deep within walls, may not be detectable through thermal imaging alone. Therefore, thermal imaging should be used in conjunction with other inspection techniques to ensure a comprehensive assessment.
Case Studies and Real-Life Examples
To understand the practical applications of thermal imaging in home inspections, let’s explore a few case studies and real-life examples:
Insulation Deficiencies: During a home inspection, thermal imaging identified areas of inadequate insulation in the attic. The temperature variations revealed heat loss, indicating insufficient insulation coverage. This information allowed homeowners to take corrective measures, resulting in improved energy efficiency and reduced utility bills.
Electrical Faults: Thermal imaging detected an overheating electrical component within a wall during an inspection. This early identification enabled the homeowner to address the issue promptly, preventing a potential electrical fire and ensuring the safety of the property.
Hidden Water Damage: In a home inspection, thermal imaging uncovered a hidden water leak in a bathroom wall. The temperature differences detected by the camera indicated moisture intrusion. By locating the precise source of the leak, the homeowner was able to repair the plumbing and prevent further water damage and mold growth.
The Future of Thermal Imaging in Home Inspections
As technology continues to advance, the future of thermal imaging in home inspections looks promising. Here are a few potential developments to look out for:
Technological Advancements and Improvements: Thermal imaging cameras are becoming more compact, affordable, and user-friendly. Ongoing advancements in sensor technology and image processing algorithms are likely to enhance the accuracy and quality of thermal imaging results.
Integration of Artificial Intelligence in Thermal Imaging: Artificial Intelligence (AI) has the potential to revolutionize thermal imaging in home inspections. AI algorithms can be trained to analyze and interpret thermal images, automating the detection of anomalies and improving the efficiency of inspections. Machine learning techniques can help AI systems learn from vast amounts of data, enabling them to identify patterns and abnormalities more accurately over time.
Potential Impact on Home Inspection Standards and Regulations: The increasing adoption of thermal imaging in home inspections may lead to changes in industry standards and regulations. As thermal imaging becomes a more widely accepted and integrated tool, regulatory bodies may update guidelines to include specific requirements for thermal inspections. This could further emphasize the importance of thermal imaging as a standard practice in home inspections.
Thermal imaging has emerged as a valuable tool in modern home inspections, providing insights into hidden issues that may not be apparent during visual inspections. By detecting temperature variations, thermal imaging can identify insulation deficiencies, air leaks, plumbing issues, electrical faults, and structural anomalies. Its non-invasive nature, time and cost efficiency, comprehensive assessments, and enhanced safety benefits make it an essential component of a thorough home inspection.
While thermal imaging has limitations and requires expertise for accurate interpretation, it remains a powerful tool in the hands of qualified inspectors. As technology advances, with the integration of AI and improvements in camera technology, the future of thermal imaging in home inspections holds great promise. It is likely to become an even more integral part of the industry, contributing to improved safety, energy efficiency, and informed decision-making for homeowners and buyers alike.

A Prophecy Born
The life of the Black Prince remains inextricably tied to the story of the Black banner, its rise and its fall, in victory and in defeat. And to understand Aegon Targaryen, Prince of Dragonstone, it is paramount that we go all the way back to when it first started, when the first of the Aegons roosted at Dragonstone and from whereupon he launched his legendary conquest of Westeros.
It was said that Daena the Dreamer, a scion of the minor Targaryen dragonlords in Old Valyria, provoked the self-exile of the small family from their ancestral homeland to the little outpost atop the volcanic island which, in time, came to be called Dragonstone. And yet, while Daena's grim dream may have set in motion a chain of events that would change the fate of the world forever, it was not until her descendant, Aegon the Dragon, wielder of old Valyrian steel and rider of the greatest dragon known to mankind, had a dream of his own. An untold threat sweeping in from the icy north with the sole objective of annihilation and a prophecy of duty and of sacrifice, of protection and of conquest. Peace through war, creation through destruction. Of ice and of fire.
House of the Dragon
If all had gone according to fate and without the meddling of petty powerbrokers and middlemen, the true line of the House of the Dragon would have never been broken, the dragons would not have been rendered extinct in some folly, and the prophecy would live on intact, passed from heir to heir, from Rhaenyra to her children, to their children, and eventually to Aegon. He would not be the 'Black Prince' as some in Westeros call him, only Aegon Targaryen, Prince of Dragonstone, and eventually King of All Westeros. The House of the Dragon would continue uninterrupted like time itself... but such was not the plan of fate.
To go West, you must go East
Treachery saw the true line of the House of the Dragon exiled from their homes, forced to live in exile in the eastern continent from which their forebears had once come in exile to take refuge in the west. Some, nay, most, would call this defeat, the loss of mandate, but to the 'Blacks' (as they came to be called), it seemed almost a fulfillment of ancient prophecies and many saw it a difficult yet necessary sacrifice to make. Over time, the various heirs of Rhaenyra attempted to retake what was theirs in what came to be known as the 'Four Dances', facing defeat and destruction in each case.
And yet, in the last of these Dances, a strange thing happened. With the line of the Usurper victorious once more and Rhaenyra's line survived only by a little boy, there was talk of extinguishing the Black line right there and then, to bring an end to the conflict that had gripped the continent for almost a century. But perhaps it was a soft heart that the King Maelor was afflicted, or perhaps nothing more than pure pragmatism, but the boy was taken from the sands of Dorne, itself left a mere shell of its former glory, and warded at the Red Keep in the court of the dragons themselves. This was where the story of Aegon Targaryen began in earnest.
Growing up, the boy struck a quick friendship with Prince Daeron, then heir to the Seven Kingdoms, and the boys became inseparable. He had been told of his duty before the destruction of all his kin and he memorized his responsibilties every night, understanding the burden that he now carried. Alone and scared, he sought companionship wherever he could find it, resulting in a humble Princeling and a personality trait that persists to this day, even after all he has been blessed with in titles and honors and friendships.
However, the tragic death of Prince Daeron brought the court to a standstill, and among the most affected by this news was the Black Prince himself. Already struggling in a hostile court, the loss of a dear friend deeply impacted the Prince who found himself indulging in other passions, especially those martial in nature, as a form of meditation under the tutelage of the finest knights in the Seven Kingdom, many of them members of the illustrious Kingsguard. His friendship with Walter Brune, another ward from a Black sympathizing line, also grew during this time and the two formed an unbreakable bond.
A Prince Reborn
Like a great warhammer, as if wielded by the Warrior himself, King Maelor shocked the realm, and none more than Aegon himself, by naming him his heir and betrothing him to his young daughter Aerea in an effort to bind the Green and Black lines once and for all, to bring peace to a shattered continent. The great announcement ushered in a new era for the royal court and the realm at large. Many came down to the capital to see the King (with what business, Aegon did not know nor care) and among them were other young men such as Quentyn Baratheon and Theomore Stark, with whom the newly-made Crown Prince forged great friendships. Named Prince of Dragonstone (but not yet installed in his seat proper due to his minority), Aegon is allowed greater freedom in the Red Keep and occasionally even allowed to attend Small Council meetings. And in the year 207 AC, around the Prince's twenty-second nameday, the King made the decision to install him in his rightful seat and bestow him with the dagger Fate, harbinger of prophecy, inviting the entire realm to participate in the festivities in King's Landing to celebrate this great occasion, all the while Aegon prepares his own path towards ascension, identifying friend and foe, opportunity and threat, all in preparation for what is to come...
