2020.10.22 02:02 bluebeess Please don't go off the trail.

My wife and I decided to take a hike in our backyard today. Well, not really our backyard, more like 5000 miles of national forest in Colorado. It's our little paradise. We have a few neighbors a couple of miles in each direction and some free-roaming cows, horses, and chickens to keep us company. It's a simple existence. Just the way we like it. It was a beautiful day despite the fact that we were 8000 feet above sea level. A little cold from time to time, but overall not too bad.
Anyways, it was sunny out, so we decided to take a hike and go down a "path" (a deer trail) that we haven't been down previously. We left early in the morning and after about three hours of hiking, decided to head back. Well, we were about to until I pointed out a tree-like fortress a few 1000 feet out. Screw it, we said, might as well go check it out. To get there was a pretty tough rock scramble but after about 45 minutes both of us made it up with just a few cuts and scrapes.
In front of us was a tree unlike any in the area. It was massive, almost like a redwood with roots cascading over each other and almost melting into one. It was magnificent. And the scent, oh god the scent. It was a mix of pine and something like the smell of a royal empress tree. Odd, since that was not native to the region whatsoever and rather belonged in China. The leaves were simple enough, looking almost like a maple leaf. They were however spaced out pretty sporadically and didn't fill in the whole tree.
We were more than curious at this point and moved closer. What kind of tree is this? How is it the only one for miles of its kind? It didn't make sense. As we got closer, even more questions were left to be asked. All around the trunk of the tree was small writings carved into the surface. Some were symbols while others were words from a language unknown to us. When I touched the tree, I was shocked to feel that it was cold to the touch. It wasn't wood at all, but rather a plasticky, metallic-like texture. Neither my partner nor I knew what kind of material it was. How could a metallic tree produce such a smell? We started brainstorming what it could be. Some kind of lightning pole? An experiment for the animals in the area possibly run by park rangers? But why would something like that be so detailed? And what was the writing?
We made our way to the back of the tree in search of some kind of clue for what this could be. In the back, we found a little latch. We figured it would open some kind of compartment in the roots that would open to some sort of storage container. In the back of my mind, I was anxious that some kind of alarm would go off and call the forest ranger or something along those lines. After about 5 minutes of discussion, we made the decision to pull it and see what would happen. After an even longer discussion, it was decided that I would pull it. I grabbed onto the latch with both fear and adrenaline and quickly pulled down.
Nothing happened for a second until we heard low groaning and creaking from inside the trunk, like gears spinning. Suddenly, we were being doused in orange pollen, spewing from the branches and leaves. It was too late to get out of the way as we quickly got covered, like a blanket of snow. I just stood there in utter shock. Was this some sort of government experiment in my backyard? Is it for animals to somehow track them? I didn't get it, and at that moment I just wanted to get as far the hell away from there as possible.
My wife, with terror in her eyes, also ran. As soon as we got out of the general area, we quickly used all our water to flush our eyes out. Without even talking, we began to go down the rock scramble, terrified out of our minds. This time going down took a maximum of maybe 15 minutes, with a twisted ankle added on for good measure by yours truly. After getting down, we still had a three hour hike ahead of us, and all we wanted to do was get home and shower. For all we knew, this pollen attracted coyotes or was just poisonous in general.
We didn't talk almost the whole trek back as we ran-jogged the three hours. Now it was two hours. Good thing my wife and I stay fit. After getting home we quickly strip, throw our clothes in the wash (which are stained orange), and jump into the shower. Queue an hour later when we both finished vigorously scrubbing every square inch of our body, we decided to look up the tree. Doesn't hurt to check if anything matched our little found secret. Sadly, we couldn't find anything and decided to just ice my ankle and go to bed. Before that, though we had to throw out our clothes from the hike because even after a deep wash, they were still stained a deep orange.
The next morning, we got up as usual and drank our coffee on the porch. Besides the twisted ankle, we had no reason to keep thinking about the pollen. For safe measures, we went into town and asked our friend if we smelled any different. We didn't. We also went to a doctor to get some bloodwork done just in case something toxic entered our bodies. They'll give us the results in a day or two but the doctor said since we didn't digest it, there was little to worry about. I could finally push the whole incident to the back of my mind. Until later that night when I started to feel a little... strange to say the least.
I was sitting down reading a book while my wife was working in her office. I started to feel somewhat lightheaded and played it off as needing to drink some water. Getting up from reading to go grab a glass, my vision went red. When the red cleared, I found myself in the kitchen with a full glass of water in my hand. A memory lapse? I didn't think too much of it and sat back down.
About 15 minutes later my partner comes into the room and heads towards the porch. She looked a little distant. I called out her name and no response was given whatsoever. She continued to walk in an entranced state and goes outside. A few minutes later she came back looking confused. I asked if she was okay and if she was looking for something. She stared back with a hollow face and mumbled something about how she wanted some fresh air. I asked if she felt weird at all and she responded a little and asked if we could just go to bed. I complied and we headed off to the bedroom.
That night I had a reoccurring dream. Or more of a reoccurring theme. I kept seeing that red. Over and over. Probably over a dozen times it seeped into my dreams. When I woke up I was a little cold and... wet? I looked down and saw that I was outside. About 2000 feet from my home. Sitting on the ground with no shoes on. Scared out of my mind I start briskly walking back home. As I'm walking I pass by a gutted cow. And when I say gutted, I mean a pool of fresh blood is flowing down the road like a stream. I look down at my hands and... they're red. Covered in blood. At this point I sprint back home, praying that my wife is there safe and sound.
I run down my driveway. Everything seems calm inside. going into my bedroom I can see my wife still sleeping there. A sigh of relief escapes my mouth as I lie down next to her, making sure she's alright. Something caught my eye as I was laying down though. Something... red under the covers. I throw off the blanket and see that her hands have blood caked all around them. Her fingernails are gone. As gently and quickly as I can, I try to wake her up. When she opens her eyes fear fills them. She asked why I had blood everywhere. I told her to look down at her own hands. She yells and runs into the bathroom. That was the last time I saw my wife. Or rather, the last time my conscious self did.
The lightheadedness came back and red slowly crept at the edges of my vision. When I awoke, more red. But not the same that I've been seeing. No, this was the blood of someone I loved and cared for deeply, my wife. It's still painful to describe the scene. I've never seen so much blood, not even on tv. I didn't know a human body could produce so much blood.
At first, I shut down. But knowing the red vision would come back, I quickly became fearful that something like this would happen again. I sprung my ass into gear and grabbed various boards, metal clippings, and screws. I boarded up every nook and cranny that had an opening to the outside, hoping that that would be enough to hold me back.
My next step was to write this. Maybe, just maybe it will stop someone else from doing what we did. Im not even sure what to do from here. My wife's dead body is still in the other room. I may join her soon. It seems to be the only right thing to do. Or maybe I'll go and get help. Again I wouldn't even know where to start with that. I don't want to hurt anyone else.

2020.10.22 02:02 tink66647 Long story short 🥺

Okay so I recently (within the last 3 or 4 months ) have come out as poly to everyone in my family. I am having a hard time adjusting to this because I live in a very small, town in South Carolina where people who think and feel like I do are few and far between . While my family knows of my level of romantic love my peers and friends have taken it in a very weird way. I am new at being single (6 months single after 2+ years) and my friends/people here (im kind of well known in my city) just assume im trying to be horny and have multiple women and its hard explaining that . while dealing with all that I also am very new to polyamory and know that unicorn hunting/ being a unicorn is frowned upon in polyamory , how do you go about finding a partnetelling potential partners that your poly without risk of losing that person completely by them thinking im just trying to have sex all the time ? any advice would be helpful :/

2020.10.22 02:01 tpetters Realistically, how much draft capital can the Eagles expect to get in return for their aging players?

Let's start by saying that we believe the rumors that the Eagles are going to be "sellers" at the trade deadline this year. Looking at the OverTheCap numbers, the top trade candidates Howie could move for cap relief would be:
Fletcher Cox
If traded, dead cap hit would be $15.3M vs $44M in cap savings, over the next 3 years. (Not sure if these figures are up to date after the restructure that occurred this morning.)
Alshon Jeffery
If traded, dead cap hit would be $10.5M vs $25.4M in cap savings, over the next 3 years, including this year.
Zach Ertz
If traded, dead cap hit would be $7.7M vs $14.9M in cap savings, over the next 3 years, including this year.
Desean Jackson
If traded, dead cap hit would be $7.7M vs $15.6M in cap savings, over the next 2 years.
Derek Barnett
If traded, dead cap hit would be $1.8M vs $12.2M in cap savings, over the next 2 years, including this year.
At this point, potential trade partners shouldn't expect Alshon or Desean to give them much, if any, production for the rest of this season, but maybe they are betting on them getting healthy for next year? The only way I see another team taking on those contracts would be in fashion similar to the Brock Osweiller trade: Eagles having to give up a 4th or 5th round draft pick in exchange for the cap relief.
Ertz and Cox are in a different category because they don't have the same injury history that the receivers do. They can both provide adequate production for the remainder of this season, and the following year(s) of their contract. The issue with Cox could be that other teams might not think his production would be worth the $16M & $17M cap hit for the next two years.
Derek Barnett is the curious case. He is still young, has a lot of potential and upside, and Jim Schwartz seems to like him a lot. But so far this season, Josh Sweat has been out-producing at a fraction of the cost. Is he going to be worth the $10M price tag next season while we still have Josh Sweat signed for 1/9th of the cost?
What do y'all think?

2020.10.22 02:00 autotldr Francis becomes 1st pope to endorse same-sex civil unions

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 83%. (I'm a bot)
ROME - Pope Francis became the first pontiff to endorse same-sex civil unions in comments for a documentary that premiered Wednesday, sparking cheers from gay Catholics and demands for clarification from conservatives, given the Vatican's official teaching on the issue.
Director Evgeny Afineevsky, who is gay, expressed surprise after the premiere that the pope's comments had created such a firestorm, saying Francis wasn't trying to change doctrine but was merely expressing his belief gay people should enjoy the same rights as heterosexuals.
Cruz, who is gay, said that during his first meetings with the pope in May 2018 after they patched things up, Francis assured him that God made Cruz gay.
Cruz tells his own story throughout the film, chronicling both Francis' evolution on understanding sexual abuse as well as to document the pope's views on gay people.
One of them was his former student, Yayo Grassi, who along with his partner visited Francis at the Vatican Embassy in Washington D.C., during a 2015 visit to the U.S.The Vatican publicized that encounter, making video and photos of it available, after Francis was ambushed during that same visit by his then-ambassador, Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, who invited the Kentucky anti-gay marriage activist Kim Davis to meet with the pope.
Francis DeBernardo, executive director of New Ways Ministry, an organization of LGBT Catholics, praised Francis' comments as a "Historic" shift for a church that has a record of persecuting gays.

2020.10.22 01:59 randomuser914 Ubisoft & Microsoft Partnership Suggestion

This is purely my own idea based on the current state of things that I offer up to see everyone’s thoughts on and just fun discussion on the topic. I think one of the biggest remaining moves that Microsoft could make would be to partner with Ubisoft on their UPlay+ subscription service to roll it into GamePass, even if it was temporary.
Realistically Microsoft likely won’t buy any other large game developer soon, but bringing UPlay+ along with already including EA Access starting in November would mean you essentially get three subscription services for the price of one. I don’t know what they offered to EA in order to get them to throw in EA Access, but even if it wasn’t a permanent addition like that is, if Microsoft could bundle 6 months to a year of UPlay+ and then an offer to continue the subscription at a discounted price (Like an extra $5 a month instead of the $15 that UPlay+ normally is) that would still be a huge win.

2020.10.22 01:59 androidis4lyf Am I overreacting? I just don't want to be touched by men when I leave the house.

Yesterday I met a friend for coffee. I got there before her. As I walked in, a young gentleman was busy out the front but greeted me as I walked in, and asked how I was, and if he could help me. I explained that I was meeting someone. He stood up, proceeded to walk right into my close personal space, and I mean close, his face was less than 30cm away from mine, and grab my elbow, and asked me if I was there for coffee or a drink. Because he was so close and touching me, I jerked back and had to grab my arm back. His grub was firm, and I had to pull. I was a bit stunned, as I found it a little confronting and close, and said coffee and went to sit down. He then touched my back, as if to 'guide' me.
As he walked by me again, he asked me if I wanted any water and proceeded to touch me again, this time on the arm. I moved further into the booth and placed my belongings next to me to avoid him touching me any further. It pissed me off to see that he had a COVID marshall lanyard on. I know we have no active cases where I am at the moment, but still. I don't want to be touched at all, especially when the rest of the world is in a pandemic.
What frustrated me even more is that a male walked in a few minutes after me and this staff member did not feel the need to move near him at all or touch him and simply asked how he was from across the room.
While I do not feel that there were any ill intentions behind these actions at all, it still made me feel incredibly uncomfortable, and because he wasn't overt with me or suggestive it always makes me wonder if I'm overreacting.
I don't like being touched at the best of times. I don't even really touch my friends unless I haven't seen them in a while, and only like being touched by my partner. I feel that I should be able to leave the house and be a patron of a cafe without being touched multiple times by a wait staff, especially a male one where I'm actively moving and pulling away.
Normally I would brush these types of things off, but I've been doing a lot of deep diving and self work lately, and I've found myself upset and disappointed with how I've handled boundary breaches and times where I have felt disrespected in the past and am wondering if that is exacerbating this.
This happened yesterday but I'm still mad when I think about it.
What are your thoughts? Am I overreacting?

2020.10.22 01:57 ISAMPX Jealousy and insecurities

I (22F) am currently in a relationship (22M). I’m having a serious problem dealing with adapting at trusting someone else, and believing he actually likes me and won’t just leave me as soon as a prettier nicer and hotter girl shows up. He gives me no reason to doubt him, even tho he really likes the attention of other girls when they do give him attention. I keep working on myself to be better for myself, so I won’t suffer that much from my insecurities, but every-time I keep being jealous and insecure with matters about him. I can’t understand why I am so obsessed and controlling over him bc he has never done anything to betray my trust on purpose. Is this normal on first relationships? Does it ever go away? How can I deal with it in a manner that is not toxic to my partner?

2020.10.22 01:57 Character_Shot Am I a cancer patient, or am I cured?

Apologies if it comes off insensitive, but as a disclaimer I feel immensely fortunate for my (current) situation but am having a difficult time processing.
So I had "The Call" on 10/19 at 5:00 pm, right as I was unpacking socks for my 7 month old at the pumpkin patch... I was told that the pathology report came back and it confirmed I had a low grade, stage 1 tumor that is relatively new in the salivary gland cancer world aka MASC.
Because margins were thin, my Dr. recommended radiation therapy for the full 6 weeks, and an MRI for baseline. My new radiation doctor also ordered a PET scan to be sure there aren't others areas of concern.
So... I feel as though I'm handling the news fairly well. My partner in life knows me better than the back of his hand, and is 100% supportive of my healing. And thankfully I'm on the other side of surgery, and the radiation is purely preventative, not curative (from what I can understand). I'm a bit emotionally wobbly because the PET scan could prove that my situation isn't as straight forward as my team believes, but I'm just so confused as to how serious this all is...
Do I have cancer, or am I merely in the healing period from the disease? Is my stage 1 "diagnosis" official, or is it too early to tell until I have additional testing results? I feel as though I'm living in limbo.
P.S. did anyone else have similar experiences? Or could someone give me a synopsis of their experience in oncology and what helped them get through? Any positivity is greatly appreciated.

2020.10.22 01:57 Assistant_Fluffy [M4F] Romance, Drama, and Adventure Oh My! Calling all Roleplayers!

Hey there! I’ve been pretty idle on this sub and figured I would make a post myself.
For starters, I am 18+ and would like a partner who is 18+. Non-negotiable.
Now onto the meat of things! To start, Ive been writing for about seven years now and I do consider myself a capable writer. I care about world building, side characters, and creating a place that we both love and thrive in. I can type anywhere between a single paragraph to a whole novella response, but do find I’m most comfortable writing a handful of paragraphs or less. I’m most familiar in writing Romance and Fantasy, but have dipped my toes into other genres and would be more than willing to do so. As for my preferred platform, I do enjoy discord for the sake of organization.
While I don’t have a solid plot, I do want to create a really awesome world for us to roleplay in. I can do fandoms or creations of our own it’s all up to us. Even if you have any ideas you’d want to try out I would love for us to take a look at it and see what we can do with it. For sure I would like a romance between our two characters and would love to see their own archetype blossom and grow as we progress. I am open to smut, but I don’t want it to be the center of the main plot.
Overall, I’m looking for a reliable partner who is able to create an awesome story with me and one we can look back on fondly.
Hope to hear from you soon!

2020.10.22 01:56 boredCommentator JoJo's Bizarre OC Tournament #5 - Round 2 Match 15 - London Lovett vs Klein Bras-Cheche Heitsugi

The results are in for Match 13.
The battle was long and arduous, and as time went on, both sides began to get worn down - errant hits landed on Byte and Zebra before they SAVEd themselves, and Byte’s frenzied attacks managed to slip past Espiritu and Jesse more than once. However, as things continued, it became apparent who would be the first person to get knocked out of commission - Byte and Zebra’s attempts at focusing on Jesse were successful, and a well placed blow from Byte’s hammer to his mask knocked him out for good, right before Espiritu’s stinger tore right through the hammer wielding mercenary.
However, the jaguar had come in at too late a time, and with a single press of BRB’s button, Byte was back in action - wounded, but ready to continue fighting, as he always did. However, when White Stripes teleported him back, it became apparent that it wouldn’t be necessary.
A massive glass dome surrounded the jaguar and the knocked out former mobster, as Espiritu tried to get the man onto his back. Glass Animals looked at Byte, and spoke. “Stop. We are leaving.”
Byte looked back at the stand in confusion, “Huh? What happened in the previous loop? The fight isn’t over… is it?”. Espiritu ignored him, finally getting Jesse onto his back and securing him using Glass Animals while the stand responded to Byte’s question. “It is. There is no reason to continue fighting.”
Espiritu didn’t have the drive that Jesse had to be in the shipyard or to destroy it. The most he thought about the whole situation with the Ocean Soul was feeling pity towards the beast, and Jesse had gotten his anger out on the ships that were there. He was simply here to study the effects that were in the outskirts of Los Fortuna’s pull and to gain a better understanding of the city, and he’d seen enough of them on his way here during the awful boat ride.
Byte watched in confusion as the Jaguar left, carrying the man on his back, off towards god knew where. Zebra, who had viewed the exchange through White Stripes, soon came up as well, and the two wondered to themselves about what they were supposed to do next.

The following couple of hours were odd, waking up the workers of the shipyard, contacting Peres and Holiday about it, and staring out into the sea unsure of what would happen. Neither Byte nor Zebra had really expected things to break out into a fight, and though the latter couldn’t remember much of it, thinking about the multiple times that he had almost died that he simply ended up forgetting was not very exciting.
By evening the next day, the shipyard had already begun being torn down. With its location compromised, there was no way to know if more people were on their way there, and with the ships rendered useless thanks to the damage their keels underwent, it didn’t have much of a reason to exist anyways. Byte and Zebra would leave sooner than they had expected, but they’d still have to stay for a couple days until enough of the place had been torn down, while also helping out with the teardown efforts.
By the second day, they’d already gotten tired of passing documents through the shredders.They weren’t even particularly important documents - some contained details related to the other shipyard, which was obviously top secret, but some were devoid of any importance! Why the hell were there even so many unimportant documents stored there - who even needed to learn the weather patterns of the area, or the details of the food deliveries made to the area!?
By the third day, things were starting to conclude, and the one and only Peres Straviat, the woman who convinced Fira to force the two of them to go for the job in the first place, came over for a final checkup of the area. She paced around, checking the area, often disappearing into various nooks and crannies for long periods of time before returning.
Finally, after she had finished everything else, she started walking over to the two of them, seemingly having something in mind to say to the two of them.
A match this intense is gonna be one for the books, but there’s also a day+ left to vote in the tight scramble in a shootout in which a child and a teacher have wound up against a dog and a broken magical girl.
Scenario:
The Elephant Bones and Duke’s Gym, Los Fortuna’s Slums, late evening
London Lovett lay on his bed and stared at the ceiling. The past couple of weeks had been… a lot. For him, and for pretty much everyone else in Los Fortuna. Moreso for them than for him, as his brain was quick to remind him. After all, he was fine. His friends were fine, the Elephant Bones was fine, everything was fine, and he felt that sick, fucked up sense of excitement at the fact that for once, no matter how horrifying it was, something surprising had-
No. He had to stop thinking about it. To push it away, or to do anything else other than be alone with his thoughts. Max messaged him a while back, telling him that he was going to come, and he was close by. London saw him through [Sweet Light], making his way through the restaurant and to his room. He didn’t want his boyfriend to see him… like that. If it did… well, London knew it was irrational, and that Max, Klein, and everyone else would be nothing but supportive of him, but that didn’t change much. He couldn’t let it happen. He’d have to escape.
There was a knock at the door, rhythmic and slightly too fast. Max’s. London took a deep breath. He had to keep up appearances. He stood up, rubbed his eyes, and spoke. “Come on in.” The door opened up, and soon enough, Max ran right at London, arms stretched out, before wrapping them around him in a bear hug. London chuckled, “Why so excited, tiger?”. He could already predict the answer that Max was going to give, and sure enough, that’s what he got. “You know why.”
A small smile found its way onto London’s face. All things considered, it was somewhat expected - he’d slipped up around Max, so he knew that he was feeling somewhat dour, and he would then come to cheer London up. It was the kind of thing that London could count on him doing, knowing that no matter what, Max would always be there to help him, to cheer him on. “...thanks.”
The two of them stayed like that for a good few seconds, before letting go. London moved to sit down on the bed, and Max began pacing around the room, taking a look around, no doubt about to comment on this or that - London predicted that he’d mention the stain on the window from the time Glitch went rampant with a bone-broth filled super soaker. Sure enough, Max took a few steps towards the window, and-
”HEY! WHAT’S UP, LONDON!?”
The window shattered into pieces as Klein Bras-Cheche Heitsugi dove through it, knee first. On instinct, Max summoned [Lightning Strikes Again] to protect himself from the pieces of glass, only for the stand’s face to be met with Klein’s flying knee, sending the poor rollerderbyist and vigilante flying towards the other side of the room.
London had not predicted this at all.
Klein had been working on this plan this for days.
Painstakingly mapping out the nearby graffiti of eyes so that he could know to avoid it, subtly manipulating Max so that he’d visit London, distracting him at just the perfect time, and convincing his teammate, Axel, to use his stand to carry him to the roof of the Elephant Bones without London noticing. All so that he could take London by surprise to cheer him up.
Barring the part where he accidentally flew knee-first into the face of London’s other boyfriend, the plan was an absolute success.
Raising himself up from the floor, Klein turned to look at London, eagerly anticipating his reaction. At first, London was entirely silent, staring at Klein in disbelief. Then, some snickering while London processed all that just happened. Finally, London broke out into laughter at the ridiculous situation in front of him.
The plan was successful. “So, how’d you like my surprise, twinkletoes?” Klein commented with a knowing grin. Between giggles, London could just barely muster a few words. “Yeah..! Heh… but… what about Max..?” Klein turned to look at Max, who was currently struggling to comprehend the situation. “Oh, yeah, shit! Sorry, Max. Didn’t expect you to be there. Here, let me try and fix what I can-” Klein leaned over, ready to use [Koan Sound Act 1] to bridge any wounds that he could, only to realize that Max had been knocked out cold. “... huh. Going to have to wait for him to wake up before I can do anything, then.”
After moving Max’s passed out body to London’s bed, they heard another knock. “Who’s that?” Klein asked London, but before he could answer the door swung wide to reveal a familiar scowl beneath teal-colored hair. And to the boys’ immediate distress, she appeared to be armed with a pair of badly warped chef knives.
Seemingly unphased by the scene, Fira broke the awkward silence as she stared dead at London.“You broke a window. Again.” Advancing slowly on the pair as they gestured to each other to desperately pass blame, she raised the odd-looking knives in a loose, mocking grip to point at both the offenders. “Do you have any idea how much it costs to clean up after this crap?”
Klein’s gaze darted between London and the blade-wielding manager as he raised his hands in surrender, not certain as to exactly how serious the threat before him was. London saw through the front, recognizing the knives for what they were, but wasn’t about to call out the bluff of an angry Fira and instead attempted to diffuse the situation. “Look, I know, you’re right, we’re sorry-” The sudden emphasis and glare from London summoned a quick nod and bow from his partner. “Klein and I will cover it, just put the floppy knives down.”
Klein quickly nodded in agreement, knowing full well ahead of time such an expense was likely, but his brow furled at what the boxer said. “Uhh yeah, window’s on me... I’m sorry, you said ‘floppy knives’?”
London nodded. “They’re useless; turn into putty before they cut anything. Must be some kind of stand effect, Glitch found ‘em in the kitchen a couple weeks-!” Without a word, Fira shoved one of the strange knives into London’s gut, the surprise knocking the wind out of him and making Klein jump and yell out in defiance. She held the weapon up to Klein before he could retaliate, the blade having been squashed into a silvery mash around the handle. The metallic mass slowly formed back into its former wavy shape as Klein’s eyes slowly returned to their sockets. London continued with a much less amused tone: “...ago. Why the hell do you still have those things?”
“They cost money. Unlike some of us, I don’t like wasting it.” She looked knowingly at Klein who glared back angrily, still reeling from the false attack on his beloved. Fira paused, looking between the broken window and the two brawler-types standing before her while in deep thought. Suddenly, a smirk grew on her face, making the two in her company reel back slightly as she spun in place and went to leave. “And luckily for you, I’ve figured out their trick this morning.” As she closed the door, she barked one last ominous order at the two:
“Tomorrow, noon, the abandoned diner next door. Be there and I’ll forget the window.”
As the door slammed shut, the two glanced at each other nervously. London knew better than to assume anything but the worst when Fira smiles like that, and Klein wasn’t exactly a fan of… whatever those knives meant. Before a discussion could start, however, a groaning semi-conscious Max suddenly raised his head, the left side of his face still bright red from the knee. The worried tension was broken as the pair chuckled and helped Max to his feet.
The next morning, Max returned home after exchanging hugs as Klein and London crossed over the building to Elephant Bones for breakfast, catching a fleeting glimpse of Fira as she left the front door. Panic struck the two as they remembered last night’s deal, sitting down to be handed a dish by Glitch that can only be described as ‘eggs, maybe’. “Thought I’d whip up something special for your last meal.” Klein gave her an unamused stare as she stuck out her tongue and darted back into the kitchen while London poked at the oddly colored mound on his plate.
A short conversation and a push out the door later, the two found themselves on the street approaching the meeting place, Klein stumbling over a small stack of pamphlets near the door with a curse. London clicked his tongue: “They dropped more off? I thought Zebra told them to knock it off…”
“Someone bothering you guys?” Klein recovered his footing and straightened out his shirt, giving the street a quick scan in case the suspect was still around. Only now did he notice the oddly large number of people donning burgundy hooded robes, about half the street, milling about as if nothing was off. A group of them were gathered around the boulevard kiddy-corner from Elephant Bones, holding up signs and shouting something about ‘Fated retribution’ as they handed out bottles of water and more pamphlets..
London shook his head as the two reached the crosswalk. “It’s just the Temple; they’ve always been a bit pushy around here but lately it’s gotten nuts. Whatever happened downtown must have really stirred them up.” With no cars in sight, the pair strode out into the street without pause as London continued. “It’s like they doubled their numbers overnight, you can’t go anywhere without passing a platoon of them.”
Klein had heard of the Temple and their charity work for the needy, but didn’t realize how strong of a following they seemed to have. He kept an eye on the evangelist group across the street from them as they continued ranting about their teachings. “They do relief work, yeah? They’re probably recruiting to help with the situation downtown. Probably got a bunch of people scared by it signing up, too.” He stretched, putting both hands behind his head. “I guess whatever helps those folks in the long run.” London nodded, but before he could get a word out in agreement the two had come into view of their destination, which instead prompted a confused “What the hell?” from the both of them.
The parking lot of the abandoned diner was packed, even more than usual with the stalls filled with busted vehicles, a fairly large crowd stood in front of the blacked-out front doors and windows. Above them, a large bedsheet banner had the words ‘Elephant Bones 2’ scrawled across it in dark red paint with crude, cutesy cartoonish drawings of London and Klein on either side, each holding a knife.
The crowd cheered as the confused pair came into view, London waving sheepishly while Klein quickly fed off the energy and gestured proudly at his apparent audience. While they were distracted by their public, Fira seemingly materializes from behind them to firmly place a hand on their shoulders, whispering: “The knives only cut whoever’s holding the other. Put on a good show, and the window’s on me.” The business-savvy woman shoved the odd knives from the night prior into London and Klein’s right hands before breaking into a jog to rejoin the crowd. “No more bets, ladies and gentlemen! The main event is about to begin, brought to you by the best little dive in Los Fortuna, Elephant Bones!”
Dumbfounded, London stares at the apparently-functional weapon in his hand, at a complete loss for words for Fira’s latest bout of bullshit. Klein breaks out into a hearty laugh, slightly playing it up for the audience. “Looks like it’s a duel, twinkletoes! You think yer up for it?” He playfully waved his knife in London’s face, backing up around a bit of raised curb and adopting a dramatic fighting stance.
A fire seemed to catch in the boxer’s eyes, shaking him from his bewildered stupor as a smile creeped onto his face. He’d never been in a knife fight before, the movies always made them seem pretty damn cool, and it had been awhile since their last sparring session. Chuckling, he shook out his shoulders and ankles, flipping the knife around in his hand as his smile grew too large to hide. “Just stay away from the face.”
As the two got into position, Fira finished whipping the crowd into a frenzy. Fifty-some of the slums denizens all counted down in unison:
”3, 2, 1, Open the Game!!!”
(This art is a collab between magistelles and CaptainSpooky27!)
Location: The parking lot of the Elephant Bones restaurant… Sort of. In exchange for the knives, the proprietor didn’t want you scaring off customers, so she’s charging her own teammate by the hour for something close.
There was an abandoned all-night chain diner immediately next-door, which Fira has taped a sign over reading ‘Elephant Bones 2,’ which, legally, makes it the next-best thing.
The space is roughly rectangular blacktop, with a little island in the center with a stupid little palm tree. You kinda hate that thing. The little island is circular, about four inches (yes, inches) raised from the ground, grassy surrounded by curb, smells and tastes like cement, approximately 4.13 meters in diameter, and it certainly made parking here a pain in the ass. The dimensions of the full arena are around 6.12 x 10.25 meters.
At permanent rest in each of the ‘Elephant Bones 2 parking spaces is a junked car (pretty typical fare; a front, a back, mirrors, five seats, a top, a trunk filled with duct tape, bonesaws, and high-end cleaning supplies, you know how it is), previously used in some mayhem or hilarity, now sitting there without wheels.
Players start on opposite sides of the shitty little island, 6.9 meters away with molecular precision.
Goal: RETIRE your opponent, literally only doing damage with your new knives!
Additional Information: If you take the fight outside of the designated parking lot space, Fira will canonically and successfully beat you up for the inevitable loss of revenue. This includes London. She’s the one who’s got plot armor dictating she’s going to absolutely be in top fighting form in a few days, buddy, don’t try and fuck with her.
Team Combatant JoJolity
Judecca Highrollers Klein Bras-Cheche Heitsugi "Amaziing! Jonathan Joestar! He doesn't stop rushing when dragging three tacklers behind him!" So, Fira’s trying to whip up the crowd?

2020.10.22 01:55 TheGeekPoet [HR] Seeing Straight

Teenagers. They’re rambunctious. They’re rebellious. They’re hunters of the supernatural in the night. At least, mine thinks she is.
You got one too, don’t you, Hugh? So, you’re probably going to get it. More than any of the others.
See, Hugh, we lost her mother awhile back. Neither of us took it quite well. But, Seline? I mean, who am I to assume to know anything of the connection between a mother and daughter? But Jesus, Lord almighty. She just crumbled into bits.
I could tell you all about what came next. The months of dark rooms and uneaten dinners. Pastor sayin to me she needs more church but I’ll admit before God himself, I was this close to taking the darned girl to the best shrink I could afford. Icould not lose Seline, too. Not after what we went through together.
But then something happened. And I don’t pretend to be no prophet. I’m no saint. But something real otherworldly transpired when I was at the end of my wits and I tell you, I’ve never been so thankful for anything in my life. You see, my baby girl was carried home on cloud nine one evening after weeks of looking. like she had just personally surveyed Dante’s rungs.
My Seline, my beautiful Seline, had found actual shards of heaven. She said an angel from on up high living out in in the desert in one of them steel trailers showed her how to use these divine minerals to see the truth of the world. All be damned, if the second she showed me how to ingest the good news of the mineral, I didn’t start seeing straight this entire damned world.
I know what you’re thinking. Ol’ Matty Pigstuy has lost his goddamn mind! Of course that’s what you’re thinking. I got you strung up here in my barn LIKE A GODDAMN PIG! But you’re no pig, right partner? You been coming to buy from ol Matty for years! So what gives?
Well, gimme a second here. Let me shove some more of this angel glass into my pipe. Gotta get it real hot, so it can do its jesuit magic. Good god. That feels great. Yeah, baby! Here, I know you’re upside down and that hook in your back gotta hurt something mighty fearsome… But you feel that? You see that? That clarity. Breathe it in deep, like a good sow on the grill….. See? See that? That’s how my baby Seline showed me to see you all. I know what you are, partner. You’re a demon, lurking in the dark. Pretending to be human.
Been biding your time pretending to be a good neighbor and loyal customer. Buying my hog for your little watering hole, using fruits of my labor to entice men to hellish means. But my baby Seline is the legendary hunter. She’s shown me. She’s the chosen one. From season one to series finale. She’s going to foul your kind up.
That grinding sound you hear behind you is her sharpening that demon-hunter sword of hers. She says she pulled it from a dreamworld after an adventure in another universe. But between you and me? I think that gal’s a bit cuckoo. I made her the goddamn sword.
The things we do for our princesses’s though? Right? Am I right!?!
Goddamn! Thank you lord for sending me this heaven rock so I can see the way. Goddamn! Thank you lord for making my baby girl your warrior disciple! Goddamn! Thank you lord for showing me Hugh, the bar owner, is my baby girl’s next demon bounty! Or whatever. Who cares?
Look Hugh, look how big she’s smiling! Can you see? Can you see heaven in her smile?

2020.10.22 01:54 androidis4lyf Am I overreacting? I just feel like I should be able to leave the house and not be touched by strange men.

Yesterday I met a friend for coffee. I got there before her. As I walked in, a young gentleman was busy out the front but greeted me as I walked in, and asked how I was, and if he could help me. I explained that I was meeting someone. He stood up, proceeded to walk right into my close personal space, and I mean close, his face was less than 30cm away from mine, and grab my elbow, and asked me if I was there for coffee or a drink. Because he was so close and touching me, I jerked back and had to grab my arm back. His grub was firm, and I had to pull. I was a bit stunned, as I found it a little confronting and close, and said coffee and went to sit down. He then touched my back, as if to 'guide' me.
As he walked by me again, he asked me if I wanted any water and proceeded to touch me again, this time on the arm. I moved further into the booth and placed my belongings next to me to avoid him touching me any further. It pissed me off to see that he had a COVID marshall lanyard on. I know we have no active cases where I am at the moment, but still. I don't want to be touched at all, especially when the rest of the world is in a pandemic.
What frustrated me even more is that a male walked in a few minutes after me and this staff member did not feel the need to move near him at all or touch him and simply asked how he was from across the room.
While I do not feel that there were any ill intentions behind these actions at all, it still made me feel incredibly uncomfortable, and because he wasn't overt with me or suggestive it always makes me wonder if I'm overreacting.
I don't like being touched at the best of times. I don't even really touch my friends unless I haven't seen them in a while, and only like being touched by my partner. I feel that I should be able to leave the house and be a patron of a cafe without being touched multiple times by a wait staff, especially a male one where I'm actively moving and pulling away.
Normally I would brush these types of things off, but I've been doing a lot of deep diving and self work lately, and I've found myself upset and disappointed with how I've handled boundary breaches and times where I have felt disrespected in the past and am wondering if that is exacerbating this.
This happened yesterday but I'm still mad when I think about it.
What are your thoughts? Am I overreacting?

2020.10.22 01:49 waterintakelow123 On and off fear of not seeing red flags and getting hurt down the line by my loving bf. How do I (24F) get over this? Seeing therapist soon but I need advice as well.

Basically, I have this running fear that I am missing signs of red flags in my bf, and then I get intrusive thoughts of him being mean to me down the line, or yelling at me, or getting his anger out on me and it scares me to the core.
My dad always had a bad temper, and my mom was the same. So how is it that I have magically found a guy who seems healthy and more stable? The shoe is bound to drop in my mind, and when it does, I'll find myself in an abusive relationship. This is what my fear tells me.
My bf and I have expressed how weird it is that we both bring out healthy communication within each other. Neither one of us had been able to be so raw and vulnerable with a partner and communicate our feelings without conflict in past relationships. I think maybe we bring out the best in each other, but then my inner critic tells me, "NOPE. You'll marry someone as worse as your dad and you will have yourself to blame".
So I need insight. Why do I get these fears and how do I deal with them? Especially in times of conflict with my SO. I worry to express something sometimes because I'm scared he'll take it with rejection, and then he surprises me and has the warmest response to what I have to say. I'm so tired of my mind.

2020.10.22 01:48 Pandabear14789 Standing up to my abusive, manipulative mother.

So I moved out of my parents house at 18. My mom almost cost me my first apartment. It was a nice apartment but had some issues. My mom went through and took pictures and proceeded to call my landlord and was very rude to him. He was shaking, almost crying. He said he didn’t know if this would work out but he knew I wasn’t anything like my mother.
My mother was very abusive, manipulative, mentally and sometimes physically abusive. I have had my mom day she wanted to get my tested to see if I was stupid. The person said I wasn’t stupid, I just needed a little bit of help. My mom would scream at me when I was an adult because I wasn’t texting her. She would blow up my phone seconds after seconds. Even though she knew I was ok. She would track my phone. Once I got out and got rid of it. She said she wouldn’t be mad at me but she wanted to know why. When I told her, she proceeded to scream at me. She would tell me don’t forget pays for your car and phone.
I was so anxious and felt like I was walking on eggshells. I had some much anxiety to make sure I had my phone and had it charged. Because if I wouldn’t and my mom texted me and I didn’t answer right away. She would call me, threaten me, scream at me. It got to the point where I almost took my life twice. Luck enough I had my friend for the first one. The second time my gf was there and sat with me in the freezing cold on top of a car park.
I finally had enough and told my mom to back off. She didn’t like it but she did. I just moved 14+ hours away with my wonderful girlfriend.
Before we left my mom had a meltdown in a restaurant because we just found out when we where moving that night because of issues. My mom got mad because we didn’t tell them so they could help. Even though we just found out. She was also mad because my partner said the apartment was just like two trailers on top of each other. My mom proceeded to tell my partner that she raised me better than that and that living in a trailer was not ok. My partner lived in a trailer when she was a kid and called my mother out. She proceeded to blame me and said I never told her. She then said she wanted to leave because I wasn’t saying anything. I was super anxious. Then she went to the bathroom and texted me to go to the bathroom. I didn’t respond. I told her the move out date for my apartment many many times. She then proceeded to tell me I never told her. Then went outside and yelled at me more. She then said she would fight my partner. They left.
Getting to today. I have been having trouble sleeping and didn’t get to bed till late. My mom texted me about coming up for thanksgiving. My parents paid for a hotel for the night before and flights. She texted over and over within seconds. She left a passive aggressive voicemail. She then texted my gf. My gf said I was asleep. I called her when I got up. She said she got paranoid and said I could have died in my sleep. My gf was upset because she didn’t feel like they trusted her to call if something happened. She texted her that. She then demanded I get her in check an demanded an apology from her. I told her that I would not get her in check because she had a right to be upset. She then got upset. I then told her that felt like she didn’t trust me to text her back and to be an adult. She then got made. I told her about the anxiety I felt about my phone before. I said I am getting help with my anxiety. I was worried about her and think she should get help with her anxiety. She then told me she will not talk to me anymore and that I crossed a line. That my dad will be the one communicating with me. I texted my dad and he called me. I told him everything and he had the screenshots from my mom. He told me it was my fault and that I owe her an apology. He asked me if I think I should apologize and if I still wanted to come up. I said I don’t know and he’s going to call me.
Am I The Asshole here?

2020.10.22 01:48 stevenpost How do I help my fiancée open up and become comfortable about her sexual side?

Hi,
I [M 33] love my fiancée [F 28] dearly, but over the last year or so our sex life has become nearly non existent, she says her sex drive was affected by the pill (she’s gone off the pill now) and just feeling rubbish in general. Sex was always just ok, she finds it easy to orgasm but I don’t because I’m circumcised and she never seemed to want to try new positions or anything that might make sex more exciting for us both.
She admits she finds it hard to talk about sex and her low sex drive. She never masturbates even though at the moment, we have to be apart for a few months.
I constantly tell her I’m attracted to her and I love her and when we are together it’s always me that initiated sex.
She wants to discover her sexual side more and become more open about it with me.
I’m worried that if we can’t have a good physical relationship it will damage other aspects of our relationship.
I want to be a good partner and help her in anyway I can to open up and become happy with the sexual side of her personality.
So I’m hoping someone here can recommend a book I can buy for her that we could read together or a podcast or maybe some personal advice that I could use.
Making her happy is my number one goal here.
What should I do?
Thanks you ladies

2020.10.22 01:48 Scottcat We wanted to love RDR2Online but player base prevents it (PS4)

Myself, my partner and my friend started the game recently, loving every day of it bar the last week because the halloween event came out( and a few days prior)
We are consistently griefed every single day even if we skip server, it is SO tiring. We try to fight back but it seems every mug and their companions run tier 3 pvp cards which excel at one shotting lower players.
Take tonight for example, we're shot at by a random guy and we defend ourselves, suddenly he and his 6 friends come and blow us away again and again. Parley does NOTHING as they follow us, dynamiting the entire city/camp/lasso spamming and doing the equivalent to the 'fuck off' emote or lol spamming. We message their leader to please stop, they're literally ruining the game and get prompted with ''shouldn't of fought back u dumb c*nts'' .
Reporting does nothing, Parley -Makes it WORSE- and eventually they server hop to find us again and again till we literally just quit for the night. What are we meant to do? Defensive stance doesn't work either, we like to duel each other for fun and are consistently set to ''aggresive'' despite never killing others unless attacked.

2020.10.22 01:48 sammers510 Looking for Elopement Photographers in the PNW and Locations for an Epic Ceremony

It’s official official, we’re recently engaged on 10/10/20 but have long had plans for a international destination wedding (we’re US based and originally had planned on a small destination wedding in Iceland and a Honeymoon in Spain) but Covid has made that dream a pipe dream for 2021, and unfortunately all my hard researching and planning no longer applies. We don’t want to wait or spend all our hard earned money on our dream wedding only to have to cancel it and lose out, so now we’re having to switch gears and do something even smaller locally (as many others have had to do as well). We live in Oregon and our families are in Oregon & Washington and we are looking for location ideas and photographer recommendations in the PNW.
Obviously The Hearnes are amazing and have really blown up in the elopement photography genre, and most importantly they are just the style we like. My fiancé is a hobby filmmaker and likes their editing style because they specifically edit their work to resemble film. I love that the whole picture looks amazing (the landscape & the people) and that the pictures are crisp and not blurred but still look extra good with bold colors. Unfortunately their fee is our entire wedding budget so I’ve been trying to find others that do similar work even if it’s not quite the same quality. I’ve found The Foxes, they are still at the top of our photography budget but have options to work with their partners for less which in all honesty we’d probably do. Any more recommendations for other people who do similar work? Bonus if the are PNW based and are familiar with shooting locations. Absolute top of budget is 8k but would prefer to stay under 6k.
As for locations, I’d love the top of a mountain with mountains surrounding us, my fiancé would love a glacial lake in there somewhere and to potentially bring our 3 dogs. We’re both relatively fit and are up to hiking into wherever we choose. The biggest thing to me is that I want it to look “otherworldly or not real”. What does that mean? It means that I want it to look so raw and beautiful that it looks “too good to be true”. When I saw the Grand Canyon for the first time last year it felt like I was looking at one of those set paintings in an old western, same thing for a hot air balloon ride we took during the international ballon festival, they just looked not real, but so beautiful. That’s why I wanted Iceland originally, it’s so beautiful and full of untouched epic nature so I’m hoping to find something similar here if I can.
So hit us with you recommendations if you have any. Google isn’t as helpful as I was hoping so I’m crossing my fingers that someone here will be able to help point us in the right direction.
TYIA!

2020.10.22 01:45 eddyeagal Inheritance Tax threshold for a widow

If a widow was the sole inheritor of their married partner's estate, am I correct in thinking that the deceased partner's inheritance tax threshold will pass onto their living partner?
If, then, a husband left their full estate to their wife - when the wife dies, the tax free threshold on their estate will be their own allowance + their husbands, since their husband did not contribute a penny to his threshold, as everything he left went to his wife... which means that no tax had to be paid on it, as per marriage and inheritance tax law.
Therefore, beneficiaries of this widow's estate would only have to pay inheritance tax if the amount left to them exceeded the widow's personal threshold + their deceased husbands.
This, at a minimum, creates a tax-free threshold of around £600k - meaning an estate valued at £500k would not be subject to any inheritance tax.
Is that understanding correct?
TLDR: does a deceased partners tax threshold pass onto their living partner?

It grew rapidly from 2000 until 2008 when the Great Recession began worldwide and reached Ukraine as the 2008-2009 Ukrainian financial crisis. The economy recovered in 2010 and continued improving until 2013. From 2014 to 2015, the Ukrainian economy suffered a downturn, with the GDP in 2015 being slightly above half of its value in 2013. In 2016, the economy again started to grow. By 2018, the Ukrainian economy was growing rapidly, and reached almost 80% of its size in 2008.

The depression during the 1990s included hyperinflation and a fall in economic output to less than half of the GDP of the preceding Ukrainian SSR. GDP growth was recorded for the first time in 2000, and continued for eight years.[33] This growth was halted by the global financial crisis of 2008, but the Ukrainian economy recovered and achieved positive GDP growth in the first quarter of 2010.[34] By October 2013, the Ukrainian economy lapsed into another recession.[35] The previous summer Ukrainian exports to Russia substantially declined due to stricter border and customs control by Russia.[36] The early 2014 annexation of Crimea by Russia, and the War in Donbass that started in the spring of 2014 severely damaged Ukraine's economy[37] and severely damaged two of the country's most industrial regions.[38] In 2013, Ukraine saw zero growth in GDP.[38] Ukraine's economy shrank by 6.8% in 2014,[39] and this continued with a 12% decline in GDP in 2015.[40] In April 2017, the World Bank stated that Ukraine's economic growth rate was 2.3% in 2016, thus ending the recession.[41]
In April 2020, the World Bank reported that the economic growth was solid at 3.2 percent in 2019, led by a good agricultural harvest and sectors dependent on domestic consumption. Household consumption grew by 11.9 percent in 2019, supported by sizable remittance inflows and a resumption of consumer lending, while domestic trade and agriculture grew by 3.4 and 1.3 percent, respectively.[42]
The nation has many of the components of a major European economy: rich farmlands,[43][44] a well-developed industrial base, highly trained labour, and a good education-system.[45] As of 2014, however, the economy remains in a poor condition.[46][needs update] According to IMF, in 2018 Ukraine was a country with the lowest GDP per capita in Europe.[47][48][49]

2020.10.22 01:44 myousername Understanding the cycle of abuse from the perspective of the abuser 🚩🚩🚩🚨🚨🚨

I believe it is important to understand what is going on inside the mind of an abuser, so that we are better positioned to see through their bullshit lies, manipulation, and pity plays, and then leave the relationship for good.
Here I will be outlining the cycle of abuse as it is ordinarily observed by the victim and by outsiders, and compare it to what's going on inside the mind of the abuser.
  1. Tension Building: Tensions increase, victim feels need to placate the abuser.
What the victim feels is rising tension, but what the abuser feels is a loss of control. Perhaps the victim did something that the abuser doesn't like because it doesn't fit within their narcissistic love script. Perhaps the abuser had a bad day at work and was disciplined by his boss, making him feel small and lacking control. Sometimes, there is no specific trigger, and the sense of a loss of control is entirely within the abusers head.
  1. Incident: verbal, emotional, physical abuse, anger, blaming, arguing, threats, intimidation.
In order to regain a sense of control, the abuser lashes out at their victim. Abusers are bullies. Ultimately, they want the victim to feel small and break down their self esteem, and to make themselves feel big and powerful.
  1. Reconciliation: abuser apologizes, makes excuses, blames the victim, denies that the abuse occurred, or gaslights the victim into believing the abuse wasn't as bad as they remember.
Depending on how the victim responds, and how new the relationship is (and therefore how many cycles of abuse they've been through), the abuser may respond in one of a few different ways.
If the victim does not tolerate the abuse and tries to leave (especially if the relationship is relatively new) and the abuser realizes they acted too crazy too fast, pushing the victim into "hey wait a fucking minute" territory, the abuser will often go for a pity play in a last ditch effort to regain control. He will put on some crocodile tears, profuse apologies, begging, telling stories about being hurt in the past, etc. to persuade the victim into forgiving them and giving the relationship another chance.
If the victim puts up with the abuse, or if they fight back but the abuser is confident enough that the victim has been sufficiently dependent on them or mentally broken down (either by themselves or by past partners) and will not seriously attempt to leave the relationship, the abuser will usually deny, gaslight, and use other manipulative tactics to further break down the psyche of their victim.
  1. Calm: Incident is "forgotten" and no abuse is actively taking place. The "honeymoon" phase. Often the abuser love bombs the victim to "make up" to them.
The abuser feels in control, at least for now. The love bombing is not genuine, it is just a means to an end, and that end is controlling the victim. Over time, the "calm"/love bombing phase becomes shorter and shorter until it ceases to exist whatsoever, at which point it will just be constant tension/abuse.

2020.10.22 01:44 SanctuaryBuyer I feel like I’m post-drink

I’m creeping up on a year sober after a 30+ year drinking career with too many blackouts, hangovers and anxiety episodes to count. And many disappointed partners, family, friends and colleagues.
However, now I feel like I’ve really moved on from alcohol. I had stopped before, a few weeks here and there, many Drynuaries and even a 3 month sober period. But after my last blackout and an evening where I lost 4 « good » friends because of my stupid behaviour, I decided to completely stop. At first, it’s a day by day and even hour by hour process. The cravings are bad and the « I can just have one » reasoning is present.
But now I hardly think of drinking. I still scroll Reddit and as such I see the posts on this sub and I offer advice and support.
I guess I’m writing this to say it is possible to move on from drinking. To be post-drink as it were. (Anyone here familiar with the post-rock as a genre will see where I am going with that term). I no longer crave drinking beer or wine or whiskey. Now I look forward to my soda and lemonade or cup of tea.
I’ve seen posts where people ask if they can be themselves without turning to drink. Will they still be fun? Will they still be human? I can say yes! There is life after drinking.
