2023.06.09 00:04 kim_possible824 [F4A] WWE Romance Roleplay

Hello! I’m looking for a fellow WWE fan that would like to take part in a WWE related roleplay. I’ve had some experience with WWE roleplays but I don’t require you to have any at all. I would prefer it if you are someone that is knowledgeable about the most recent WWE stuff in order to give us more stuff to play with. So if you're currently following WWE, this is definitely for you. I’m okay with both roleplaying as real WWE wrestlers, creating our own, or a mix of both. We can discuss this and see what we each think to decide what the best approach would be. I would like to incorporate some sort of romance to the story itself either as the main plot of the story or at the very least a subplot. Along with the romance plot, I want to incorporate a lot of the WWE universe. This means matches, backstage drama and segments, as well as exploring storylines for our characters in WWE. Like I said, we can discuss all of this and make sure we’re on the same page and plan accordingly. If you have any ideas of your own that you would like to explore in this roleplay, please let me know and I would love to discuss them with you. As for potential scenarios or ideas that we can explore, here are some that I have some experience with or that I’ve wanted to try for a while. These are just general ideas and we can always mold them however we see fit as well as come up with new ones that aren’t mentioned here. Tag Team/Mixed Tag Team - we can start off the roleplay with our characters (real or fictional) being a tag team and that being where they are in terms of storyline for the WWE shows. Another way would be to have our character start off as single wrestlers and WWE deciding to put us in a tag team and explore the dynamics of that in and out of the ring. Bitter rivals - as the name suggests, this approach would have our characters being rivals, whether it be as part of a storyline or genuine animosity outside of the ring. There are many ways we can approach this and it also leaves a good opening for the romance plot to work itself in naturally. New vs Veteran wrestler - For this one, one of us would take on the role of an up and coming wrestler that has just gotten called up to the main roster. The other would be a more seasoned and veteran wrestler that could take the other under their wing or maybe our characters are put together in a storyline to help push the one that is the up and coming wrestler. Again, this could go in many directions and we can decide which way we want to go. For now, these are the ones that I can think of but they are by no means the only ones I’m willing to try. If you have any suggestions please let me know. If you like any of the ones above, let me know and we can discuss the direction we want to take. Other than that, I hope to hear from you :)

2023.06.08 23:59 Possible_Fly325 Am I overreacting?

Sorry this is a lot I’m bad with words
I’m 15ftm (no medical transition just social) I’ve always just thought a lot of this normal. Ive become used to constant pain whether that be joint,back,headache,stomach, jaw, or just everywhere. Ive become desensitized to pain in a sense sometimes not even realizing I was bleeding/had huge bruises at times. I do feel pain just I can kinda remove myself from it. So normally if im in de-habilitating pain I know it’s at least kinda bad.
I’ve had acid reflux since kindergarten and would complain about “spicy” stuff splattering in my throat when I would run after eating. I’ve had trouble breathing due to it and had to go to the doctor to check for asthma (I got told my vocal cords were spasming but no actual testing was preformed) my acid reflux has gotten worse and when I wasn’t on my acid reducers happened almost once a day (slowly got worse throughout the years)
I’ve always rolled my ankles and it sometimes hurts but usually doesn’t it has resulted in me falling down stairs and randomly collapsing while walking.my parents would get annoyed cause I would complain about about pain when walking because sometimes it’s fine but sometimes I’m grabbing onto things so I can just stand up. I constantly lose feeling in my legs even if I just sit down for a minute. Anytime I get up they are always popping. It constantly feels like all my joints have a bunch of air in them and no matter how hard I try to pop and crack it won’t go away. My hand bones constantly pop, crack and hurt. (I’m an artist/i type a Lot so this gets annoying and painful it feels like I’m gonna fall almost all the time and this feeling has gotten worse over time. I constantly hyper flex my legs and only now have I started to over bend my knees to prevent it) I rollerblade and will just have a leg give out on me and I’ll fall which can be dangerous.
I have constant headaches I’ve had one that’s lasted for 2 months currently (I’ll get a few hours or a day of relief sometimes) normally it’s pretty tame and I can block it out if I don’t think about it but sometimes I can’t open my eyes with how bad it hurts.
I have inflamed tonsils and decaying teeth but I’m sure that’s from the acid reflux. I have been diagnosed with ibs and have been given acid reducers for the acid reflux (they help but it still happens semi consistently) im sometimes stuck on the floor or in bed for hours because my stomach hurts so bad it’s horrible. I’ll be stuck on the toilet for an hour from pain and have fissures(i see bright red blood blood in stool semi often) I’ve been constipated for 7-9 possibly more days at some points. Im terrified to eat because I don’t know if it’s gonna hurt me (my eating disorder does not help this) and I have become underweight/malnourished. Even when I eat nothing goes away
I have such bad fatigue I will just sit there and stare no music or tv just stare at a wall because I can’t get the energy to do anything. I struggle getting out of bed and have constantly been yelled at because it will take me 30-40 minutes some days to just stand up out of bed. (If I’m not being yelled at it takes me multiple hours to want to get out of bed most days) I have trouble sleeping and almost never sleep well often only being able to get 4-6 hours even though I am extremely tired
I’ve had other minor things such as large red bumps in my nose that have been getting worse for months and have been making it hard to breath at points. My ear randomly bled like two weeks ago (woke up with blood dripping from my ear canal and all over my ear) it was while I was sleeping and stopped by the time I woke up. Lots of bruises like I will bruise if someone even just touches me slightly too hard. (My bruises take months to heal a lot so it’s annoying) I have pretty consistent muscle spasms and sometimes can’t move my entire body for minutes at a time. (I can blink and breath luckily)
I do experience tactile,visual, and auditory hallucinations along with delusions. I also have horrible anxiety. So idk if that is playing into this. My parents say I’m a hypochondriac and get annoyed whenever I say something hurts (I did go to the doctor about my stomach issues luckily after like a year of complaints)
am I just overreacting or should I ask about more medical testing?

2023.06.08 23:56 Thraun83 Observations from the SGF trailer

First of all - wow, what a trailer! After a couple of quick rewatches, I just had to get some initial thoughts down. I will try to stick to the facts of what can be seen and stay away from too much speculation for now.
The trailer opens with shots of Midgar burning and the reported stating a disaster caused by a tornado – possibly the tornado during the events in the singularity? The music is the Whisper battle theme from chapter 18.
Tifa confides in Aerith that as far as she’s aware, Cloud wasn’t in Nibehleim 5 years ago. This must be after Cloud tells the group his story of what happened there.
A man says that Hojo called the hooded men “shadows of the man”, and that they are connected to Sephiroth. I do not recognise the voice. Could this be Vincent?
The hooded man chanting “Jenova” in the trailer is Cloud.
Sephiroth is planting doubt in Cloud’s mind and trying to turn him against his friends. He is trying to convince Cloud that he saw Tifa die in Nibelheim, so who is the imposter he is travelling with? This makes the dialogue between Cloud and Tifa from last year’s trailer make much more sense. I love that Sephiroth is doubling down on his manipulations here in a way that wasn’t done in the original, but is entirely consistent with the story and Sephiroth’s methods.
The characters have low HP (less than 2k) during the Jenova encounter seen. I would guess this takes place on the boat, and the environment is changed just like in President Shinra’s office. The same voice from earlier (possibly Vincent) has a voiceover telling us more about what Jenova is and how she manipulates people. Cloud, Barret and Tifa are present for this fight.
When Jenova appears, Yuffie is terrified and runs away. I think she recognises this, or mistakes this, as the same darkness as she saw from Nero, which she obviously has good reason to fear. Seems like a great addition to her character arc if she has to overcome a new fear.
Characters have very low HP and MP in most scenes shown. Red has 1,383 HP in the mithril mines boss fight. It looks like we are getting a full level reset in Rebirth – at least in the game mode we are shown here.
Red’s unique ability is called “Vengeance mode”.
Aerith has a new unique ability called “Ward Shift”. Unclear is this is temporary and I did not see her Remake ability of Tempest in any clips.
The mithril element type boss is likely fought in Mithril Mines, and only Barret and Red are present in the clip shown. The music that starts here and continues through most of the rest of the combat in the trailer is a variation of the Valkyrie.
There is a boss fight against the Turks – Rude and Elena. Cloud, Tifa and Aerith are present in this fight. This also looks like a different area of Mithril Mines. Minor speculation – it looks like the party splits up for the mithril mines section and have different boss encounters.
Combo attacks
The synergy buff is seen in some clips, and it looks like team attacks are available in various combinations. However, they may work differently than we saw in Intermission. In one clip it looks like Cloud and Barret use a team attack, but Barret has full ATB during it, so it looks like it did not cost ATB.
There is a new combat resource appearing as up to 5 pips under each characters ATB bar. This could be the resource used for combo attacks, or could be something to do with character swapping if that is possible.
The combo moves I picked out in the trailer were; Cloud + Barret, Yuffie + Red, and Aerith + Tifa.
When on foot, at some points the menu showed an action to “Call Chocobo” with R1. This was not available all the time, which makes sense as Chocobos would not be suitable in all environments.
Mounted Chocobo commands:
R2: Sprint
R1: Dismount
Direction pad up: Scent
Direction pad down: Scour
We are getting some kind of Chocobo searching minigame.
Looking forward to the next 6 months of theorycrafting and speculation!

2023.06.08 23:53 Beatothegolden13 [LFA] Dragonborn Dancer

My character that might soon see actual play, hopefully. I know it has lot of details, but feel free to take artistic liberties.
Dragonborn of crystal gem origin (radiant).
She is a dancer and she originates from region with vast harsh desert. She used to travel in nomad merchant caravan, until it was attacked by massive sand shark. Surviving was almost like a miracle for her and it took it's toll. Having touched the death's domain left it's mark.
She had beautiful white crystalline scales from hands to elbows, from toes to slightly above knees. Her tail (yes, tail) crystalline, graceful and long. Long white hair contrasting her sun tanned skin. Sapphire eyes reflecting the world she sees with light scaling accenting her face. Blue crystalline horns decorating her head.
That's what she used to look like...
Now tainted by death, Topaz (necrotic) like color has taken over her left side. While crystalline white has purified the right. The colors are even, but the line is jagged as if both colors are trying to reach further. She has slight complex about how she looks and tries to somewhat hide it with looser clothes, She does show more skin on white side though as she is Dancer for the goddess of life and being tainted by god of death is in her opinion somewhat hideous thing. One of her horns and eyes now red opposing the blue on other side.
She is determined to keep dancing and moving forward in life even though she still has personal obstacles as being near death gave her reminder, just how fleeting life can be.
I don't have mapped out references, so I have to use words instead and I hope this is enough to inspire someone and to make it fun and interesting to draw.

2023.06.08 23:53 DietrichVanMeier 23 M Europe - History and Literature Enthusiast

Hi. I'm looking to talk to new people, maybe make a friend
They are:
History, especially the 19th-20th century but with more broad and general knowedge in other time periods. I'm not an expert or anything but I am pretty passionate about it and tend to read/listen about one event or the other on a pretty regular basis.
Literature, especially old novels. I recently read Demian (my all time favourite book), Day of the Oprichnik, Heart of Darkness, the Perfume and Little Prince. Some of my other favourite works would include: "The Picture of Dorian Gray", "Faust part I" (need to get to part II) and "No Longer Human". I also like to write short stories and book reviews. I'd also really like to read the same book with someone and discuss it. I just started reading Grimm's fairy tales.
Languages. I know three, with one being a bit rusty. I'm currently working to scrape off the rust and then when I'm finished with that will begin to learn a fourth language. It's fun to go through different works in multiple languages. For example, I read the aforementioned Faust part I in all three.
Games. I recently played Cyberpunk 2077. Now that the dust has settled and the bugs mostly removed...It's not that bad! The main questline at least, Fallout 76 (Very average, I'm dissapointed with what they made the "RPG" system) and will try out Deus Ex Manking Divided again ( Got inspired since it's somewhat similar to Cyberpunk). I was waiting to play Elden Ring but it ended being too stressful for me. Go here and get beaten up go there and get beaten up, repeat...Besides that I'm a big fan of Paradox strategy games...like EU IV and HoI IV (also thinking of making my own project for HoI IV). I am definitely looking forward to try out Victoria III, after they add more content to it. I also got Modern Warfare 2, since the first MW had great multiplayer gameplay.
Anime and Manga. In recent times my interest has waned but I still watch the occasional series here and there. Like Cyberpunk Edgerunners (Which I found to be rather mediocre) and the very good new season of Bleach. Some other favourites include: Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, Death Note, Fate;Zero, Psycho Pass , Higurashi (season 2 is a bit weak but the first one is a masterpiece of horror), Code Geass, Attack on Titan and others. My favourite Manga is Berserk...I hope it gets a good ending..the first couple of new chapters were...a bit rough but the new author seems to have got his footing.
Anyway, that should be enough information to give you a good picture... Before I go, I would like to ask for you to include the title of the last book you read in your reply. A small request, I feel. I'll be ignoring those that don't.

2023.06.08 23:52 SharingOpinions Hives All Over!!! Advice Much Appreciated!

20 Years Old 6ft/350lb
History of Epilepsy Medications: Keppra, Vimpat
Hi, went to take a shower 4 days ago. While washing my face extreme pain erupted. After looking in the mirror there was extreme redness in my face and slight blistering. However, the entire face wasn’t covered, some areas around mouth and eyes where okay. The next day there was a rash on my stomach. I was already applying Hydrocortisone, Calamine, and taking Benadryl. Day 4 and I have had two more breakouts in other areas including my wobbly bits(not fun). I went to see my doctor and he prescribed Prednisone. However, he said it’s very likely my anti-seizure medication “Keppra.” I really don’t understand this because I started taking it when I was 13. Why would this be happening now? I don’t want to stop the medication because the last time I quit it only took two days to end a 4 year long seizure free streak. Is there any other options? Medications, Creams, Snake Oils, Anything?

2023.06.08 23:52 Far-Philosopher-3768 I'm so over her!

Not actually sure she was a MIL as her son and I were dating for maybe 6 months, however she's the paternal grandmother of my child, so I usually just refer to her as an ex-mil... Also I'm not in the US so if words are spelt differently that's why.
Main characters: Yzma - ex-MIL. Me - mother of child. SMIL - Son of MIL
I (F28 now) had a child coming up 5 years ago, and I've been NC for at least the last 4 with her despite messages from her all the time. Lets go back 5 years and get up to speed. SMIL and I were dating for maybe 6 months. I later found out that he was taking my BC in order to get me pregnant so that he would avoid incarceration and that backfired very quickly.
Moving on to Yzma. She's very much a yes lady. Everyone in her life says yes to her! Our first interaction, she asked SMIL in front of me if he's sure that it's mine. I'd never met this lady before and I had a feeling from that moment I was doomed. She then forced a relationship, and I did my best to accommodate that because I'm very much a people pleaser, and wanted to get along. There were many times throughout my pregnancy that she breached court orders and would be in contact with him while she was with me, and was passing on messages to me. She wanted a say in child's name, she demanded to be in the room and told all of her side of the family who could and couldn't message me to meet my son when he was born. I was in the hospital a week before I was due as I had a crazy pain at the top of my belly (later found out was my gallbladder and later needed to be removed), now I'm *just* about to have bloods drawn, and Yzma chose THAT moment to ask the Dr if he knew what he was doing, and then mentioned that she has some (in NZ) Class A prescription medication that will help, so just send her home and I'll give her pain relief.
From that moment, I knew she wasn't going to be in the room when I gave birth. For context - I was contracting regularly for 5 days prior to birth and it was hella traumatic for me so I had 11 people (4 of which were family, the rest were medical professionals) Scarily, the moment that my son was born I got a text from her asking if everything's okay because she hasn't heard from me for a couple days. To me, she may not have been physically there, however somehow the Spidey senses were tingling. My mum took my phone home with her that night, so I could just have a day with my brand new kiddo and I... Mum and my Aunty called Yzma, let her know how it all went and Yzma kicked off. How could I not invite her, I took that moment away from her and how could I not let her be there for the birth of HER grandson and my mum was there. My mum explained how traumatic, the amount of people who were there and why and she didn't care. It was all about me taking that away from her. As a compromise, as much as I didn't want too, I agreed to let her take us home from the hospital.
The day of going home: I had announced on good ol'Facebook that my son was here. He's good, I'm struggling with recovery so please respect space etc. Little did I know, this was going to BACKFIRE when Yzma turned up. My best friend, lets call her Tina, was visiting her godson when Yzma arrived and the first thing she said was "How dare you announce the birth of my grandson on Facebook, I haven't had a chance to tell my family or SMIL and I've been getting congratulations all morning". I mentioned "that as we're having this conversation SMIL was in court for a relationship domestic issue, and I mentioned that she knew yesterday, so had time to tell her family". Tina could see that I was getting quite upset so suggested that we go for a walk and check on discharge papers to give Yzma time to meet my son. Came back, and she had undressed him and changed his outfit to something I didn't pack, as well as adding booties, beanie and mittens. Now in New Zealand, July is winter, however in the 20 minutes ride back from the hospital, we went down the motorway (100kms in NZ) with a 3 day old as well as me who's recovering from 5 day labour. We get back to my house and my child is BRIGHT RED because he's a hot baby and was overheating. Mum ripped everything off him and his temperature came down quickly.
First 6 months of my sons life: Yzma came over once or twice a week to see him or "was in the neighbourhood so stopped in", and when I mentioned that I wanna pause her visiting for a bit because my family want to meet him she wasn't happy, posted on Facebook that "her visits have been paused until (my name) has decided otherwise so her family can meet child. Also don't message her trying to meet my grandson because that's not okay without my say so". When they were reinstated (idk if that's the right word), I set some boundaries due to court orders around the safety of my child and asked she respect them. When she didn't and I mentioned it 10+ times, I ended those visits. She later had her lawyer email me about getting visitation, and threatened government departments involvement should I not let her have my son overnight one day a weekend as well as one day through the week. I got a lawyer, and she said to send through their parenting order as we would happily go to court for this. Motion was removed and not followed through.
Now: Yzma has been messaging me about how it's been almost 5 years, and my son deserves to know her and her family (and don't get me wrong, I also agree to a point), however there's been so many boundaries broken, gaslighting, emotional manipulation for her and at the sake of my mental health. I'm taking my son on holiday for his birthday and we're visiting friends/family and we're going to be 20/30 minutes away and she's guilt tripping me into visiting her. Yes my son is at an age where he can tell me if he's uncomfortable, however she's also an extremely materialistic person and I know that she will just buy my son stuff to keep him there for her benefit and I don't know if I have the mental or emotional capacity to deal with her.

Retro Joshi #481: Jd’ August 19, 2001, GAEA Augst 19 - 26, 2001, JWP August 31, 2001 & NEO September 1, 2001
2001/08/25 Jd' BS Japan (08/19)
Week two of this taping looked awful so I skipped it. Fang Suzuki & Sachie Abe vs. Ariya & Obacchi Iizuka and Ayano Omori vs. Haruka Matsuo comprised that show. First week was more interesting. 2nd Generation Athtress Yumi Oka Debut Match: Keiko Furuta & Teruko Kagawa vs. Yumi Oka & Chiaki Kashida (7:33). Some of these athress matches have been fine on a very low level, but this wasn’t one of them. Oka was easily the worst one so far and had no idea what to do at any point. DUD. Sumie Sakai Requested Special Match: Sumie Sakai vs. Megumi Yabushita (20:21). Worked as a total grudge match with Yabushita playing the role of the Bloody early on, though not as well because she’s not a complete maniac devising all kinds of wild spots. It turned their typical submission vs high spot work. It worked better than you'd think but they don’t really seem to ever take their work to the next level. It was another good and entertaining match from them though. ***.
GAEA G-PANIC 52 (08/19/01 - 08/26/01)
8/19: GAORA Cup Tournament 1st Round: Mayumi Ozaki vs. Meiko Satomura (13:34)
Ozaki’s actually working at a reasonably high level this year compared to the last couple of years. This was a good and energetic match. The two spent most of the match answering each other and blocking the big blows. The finish didn’t work great with Ozaki countering the Death Valley Bomb into a sloppy DDT. It was a good match though. ***
GAORA Cup Tournament 1st Round: Aja Kong vs. KAORU (10:34)
Remember that excellent match they had in 2000? Yeah, this was not that. They played off a bit of what they did in that match but it was pretty clear Aja didn’t give a shit and was just going along with whatever KAORU had in mind. So it was just a total spotfest brawl with a ton of Police interference. It was okay for what it was, but that was about it. **1/4
GAORA Cup Tournament Final: Mayumi Ozaki vs. Chikayo Nagashima (6:17 / 13:34)
They showed all of that KAORU nonsense and chopped the tournament final in half. What they showed was their typical fast-paced high level work but the editing killed it. Still worth *** though.
HHH 2nd Title Match: Kaori Nakayama vs. Sakura Hirota (5:43)
Sabu Hirota. The only funny bit was Hirota accidentally destroying her belt, Nakayama won by hitting her with the other garbage belt. 1/4*
8/26: AAAW Single Next Challenger Tournament Semi Final: KAORU vs. Aja Kong (9:50)
KAORU beats Aja twice on the same show, and this made their match earlier in the show look like a technical masterpiece. Just awful garbage wrestling. I can’t believe they showed the finish in slow motion, KAORU missed that shitty uppercut by a mile. *
AAAW Single Next Challenger Tournament Semi Final: Meiko Satomura vs. Toshie Uematsu (11:42)
This match was pretty good for a while, but Ozaki kinda killed it when she told them something, which prompted them to start badly brawling and using weapons. **1/4
AAAW Single Next Challenger Tournament Final: Meiko Satomura vs. KAORU (11:40)
Shitty KAORU garbage match where they just do a bunch of random stuff again. Fuck off. KAORU sucks, that’s it, that’s the review. *
They showed an angle where Chigusa returns and turns heel.
JWP 8/31/2001
Kaori Yoneyama vs. Haruka Matsuo (9:13)
We seem to be hitting the dregs of JWP. Haruka is decent when compared to the athresses, she didn’t do anything wrong unless you want to nitpick at some sloppily executed stuff, but Yoneyama has 5 times the impact behind everything she does, even her basic stretching. This was a fun rookie level match though. *1/2
Kobina Ichikawa vs. Yuka Nakamura (14:01)
Mostly boring stretching and comedy with some lousy brawling and spots thrown in. Yeah, you don’t want to watch this. 1/2*
Command Bolshoi vs. Tsubasa Kuragaki (14:40)
A lot of stretching, but turned into a decent match in the closing minutes with Bolshoi pressing for a submission win and Tsubasa trying to turn it into a striking and spot match. Bolshoi was too clever for her though. **
JWP Tag Title Match: Ran YuYu & Misae Genki vs. Azumi Hyuga & Kayoko Haruyama (21:42)
This was more like it, Haruyama was there to get slaughtered and that’s what happened early, she fired up pretty well though. The best action was supplied by Azumi and Ran, but Genki was good too. What was odd was that Azumi and Haruyama were in the heel role, doing the heel spots and Haruyama was interfering frequently, though at least that gave her the chance to be effective. Azumi & Haruyama won the belts, which is actually kind of a shame because Ran & Genki were a cool tag team. Genki nailed them with a chair after the match. ***
NEO Summer Vacation Doesn't End 9/1/2001 Tokyo Differ Ariake
NEO Kitazawa Tag Team Title / NEO Itabashi Tag Team Title Match: Yuka Nakamura & Yuka Shiina vs. Tanny Mouse & Yuki Miyazaki (15:14)
This was okay. Our boot scootin’ baby actually seems to be improving a bit, she still works like a second year junior but she’s getting more fluid, either that or Miyzaki and Tanny are just carrying her better. Tanny was okay until she started with the comedy spots. Miyazaki was the best one in the match as usual, and Shiina was solid. **
Acute Sae vs. Chiaki Nishi (2:40, 6:10)
The thing with comedy wrestlers is they get stale after you've seen the act a few times and that's definitely happening with Nishi0. Sae beat Nishi for a bit, and then Nishi went outside and Sae chased her all around the building, which caused a double count out. Then they had just restarted the match. Sae went and killed Nishi’s stuffed toy and they had more so they used those as weapons and they ended up chasing each other around the building for a second time. All this nonsense took around 10 minutes total and it felt like an hour. DUD
Kyoko Inoue vs. Chaparita ASARI (4:53)
ASARI ran around doing her spots, threw a bunch of chairs on Kyoko outside and tried to make the most of this. Kyoko was awful again, really sluggish, barely went with the spots and sold nothing anyway. I’d say ASARI deserved better than this. 1/4*
Mima Shimoda vs. Yoshiko Tamura (10:20)
A little different to their previous matches, this one was a Shimoda 10 minute sprint and a good one. Tamura opened with the red mist and got a jumpstart but then got beaten around the building. Once they were back in the ring it was mainly back and forth spots. Pretty exciting and good match. ***
NWA Women's Pacific & NEO Title Match: Misae Genki vs. Lioness Asuka (20:40)
They worked a pretty good mat based match in the first two thirds and then we were off with the table spot and high spots in the last third. Lioness ended up getting fed up with Genki and thrashing her on the outside, though I’m not sure she ever put Genki over as enough of a threat to warrant resorting to it in the first place. Genki got one last burst in after that with a pair of G Drivers, but Lioness just crushed her. Match was good but never really felt competitive enough. **3/4

2023.06.08 23:46 Rainbow_Dash_RL Playing every Zelda game: The Legend of Zelda

To celebrate the new game that is out now, I am playing through every main Zelda game. For this quest, I am using guides to navigate and find all the secrets. However, I am attempting puzzles and bosses without hints first.
I will attempt to review this game compared with other games of its era, as an NES game.
Thanks Link. You're the hero of Hyrule. Finally, peace returns to Hyrule. The end.
I am sweating and my vision is a bit blurry after starting the Ganon fight with three hearts left.
Assistant: N/A Outside of cryptic hints, there's no helper in this game. I'm not even sure how you are supposed to find some of the secrets without trial and error, like draining a lake with the warp whistle for a dungeon entrance. Where was the hint for that? Maybe in the game manual somewhere?
Dungeons/Bosses: 6/10 Repetitive, reuses bosses, first three bosses were just reptiles. Some neat innovations, like dark rooms and secret off-map rooms, blasting your way through walls. Balanced as well as a drunk surfer.
In dungeon six, The Dragon, I made three mistakes: I died, I lost my magical shield, and I didn't know about the Great Fairy that heals you all the way so I kept charging back in with three hearts. Took eighteen attempts to beat it. Even going out of my way to get heart containers and the blue ring, the Dragon was poorly balanced and ripped through my health.
I expected dungeon seven, The Demon, to ramp it up and I went in swinging with full health. It was populated by previous bosses, threatening creatures... that you can run right past like brave, brave Sir Robin. Then you get to the end, the final boss, we are so far through the game what is it going to be...
Aquamentus. From dungeon one. Who you blitz through in one hit with full upgrades. Was that intended to be a joke, or did they really balance the game that badly?
Combat: 5/10 Not bad for a NES game, but still rather basic. You can swing a sword, shoot a beam at full health, and fire off arrows and magic spells. However, all of the neat extra things you can get don't really matter because late game enemies are immune to everything except your sword (except cats, Digdoggers, and Manhandla). Shoot a wizard with an arrow? Nah, get right up in their face with a sword at low health! Artificial difficulty is rampant, with attacks that you are not allowed to block and rooms full of Blue Darknuts, WITH FIREBALLS EVERYWHERE, because it's totally fair to have that as part of the main game and not an optional challenge worth a hundred rupees. If you could block Ganon's attacks and find an optional item to see him, the game would be so much more rewarding and satisfying.
Graphics: 5/10 About average for an NES game, nothing special. The overworld has some nice variety and enough landmarks to navigate by, but every dungeon, even the final one, is just a palette swap. It is fair that something had to be cut for all of the content on this cart. It's nice you can see a visual difference with each ring, sword, and shield you obtain.
Items: 4/10 A fantasy world with many mundane things: A raft, stepladder, candle, boomerang. Some of the best items are just upgrades to what you already have, like better armor (rings) and better swords (though it is cool you have to find enough heart pieces to be worthy, encourages exploration). The Wand + Magic Book is OP and awesome and hard-earned. Warp Whistle is chaotic and I don't understand it, but still cool. This game introduces your light/ancient/silver arrows among other important lore things. Potions are too expensive with how scarce Rupees are, and considering it takes every secret rupee cache in the game to afford the Blue Ring and Magical Shield, being able to have your shield stolen is a real low blow. I didn't even get the Bomb Upgrades because I'd rather save for a Red Potion.
Music/Sound Design: 7/10: The overworld and title screen music is absolutely classic and belongs in a video game history museum somewhere. Every dungeon (I think, might be wrong) and boss sounds the exact same and gets annoying. At low health I just muted the game. If I wanted an annoying beep to remind me I'm doing things wrong then I could just drive without a seatbelt.
Navigation/Maps: 8/10 The sheer scale of the overworld, while being full of massive dungeons, all of which has a corresponding map that you can warp around in two different ways, is just incredible for the hardware this game was on. There's also a Compass in each dungeon and secret rooms off the map. For an NES game, that is pretty good.
QoL: 6/10 At first I was going to rate this lower, but I took a deep breath and compared it with NES games, not modern ones. There's a Great Fairy who will heal you completely. You can buy potions that heal full health with two servings. However, the game does not scale with difficulty. I took a wrong turn in Death Mountain and spent ten minutes getting back on track. During that time, I found three hearts and no fairies, despite the increased difficulty. I could not imagine being an 80s kid, spending an hour or two on Death Mountain without a guide, almost winning against Ganon and then having to do the entire dungeon all over again. I have played the game on a NES before but I don't recall if there's any way to load from a save before bosses, but I sure hope so. If so it gets a seven out of ten.
Secrets/Easter Eggs: 6/10 There's a good amount of secret rooms and items for an NES game, but it loses some points for being mostly burn the bush or bomb the wall and for how arbitrary it is. The only way to know where secrets are is by burning/bombing everything, a friend telling you, or getting a hint from the latest edition of Nintendo Power. Off-map rooms in a game this old are cool to see, but hiding some of the most important items in the game that way is a bit much (looking at you, Red Ring).
Story: 3/10 There is actually a backstory you can find in the game's manual, but it is the very basic cliche of "go rescue the princess from the evil pig creature". They pretty much copied Mario. However, TLoZ gets a couple points for being the foundation of the lore we take for granted now, like the Triforce (of wisdom and power, courage is absent) and Ganon.

2023.06.08 23:40 Most_Refrigerator53 My boyfriend (29M) of nearly 4 years won't propose to me (26F)

My boyfriend and I are about to turn 27 and 30 in few months. We have been dating over 3.5 years, going on 4. We have been living together for a little under three years. We both love each other very much and have talked in depth about getting married and having kids for several years now. For years we have basically been living like a married couple as it is. I cook all of our meals, clean the house, do laundry, and he pays the large bills, fixes our cars when needed, does all repairs on our house, etc. I host his family for holidays and events and help them with other things, as does he with my family. We have a great relationship and rarely argue, and when we do argue, the fights aren't nasty and messy, as we both respect each other very much. Yet despite all of this, he will not propose to me. It's breaking my heart and making me start to resent everything I do for him on a daily basis.
In our group of friends, every other couple that has been together for the same amount of time or less than we have is already married with children or at the very least engaged. When we go to events, I feel so upset seeing all of these girls having their men make such a commitment to them, while I'm doing everything I can for my boyfriend day and night for years and still apparently am not yet worthy of a ring.
For background, we both have solid careers. I have finished my masters degree. My boyfriend alone makes about 200K a year and owns a beautiful house in which we live in together. So this is not a financial issue or a matter of waiting to have a house, etc. About a year ago, he started dropping hints about proposing and talking about what kind of wedding we would have etc. I was so excited and hopeful that this would be the year. But as the months passed and holidays and milestones continued to come and go, I grew more and more disappointed. Every holiday, special dinner, etc. I'd think "Okay, this is it! This will be the night!" and time and time again, the proposal never happened. A few months after our 3 years anniversary after we went to a party where I was just about the only female without a ring on my finger, I finally broke down crying about how sad I was. He seemingly could care less, told me he has a plan and will do it when he's ready. I have broken down a few times since this and he basically tells me I'm ruining the surprise and it'll happen when it happens. I have expressed my sadness that there is no element of surprise left, as it is now a mere waiting game, and he just rolls his eyes and laughs and takes it as me nagging. It upsets me that he doesn't seem to care about how much this upsets me. Perhaps if I did not give him so much of myself so soon I wouldn't be in the position I'm in now. It's like the saying goes "Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free".
TL;DR!- been living with my boyfriend for 3 years and he still won't propose to me.

While Paramount has announced no streaming plans at this time, big-budget blockbusters like Transformers: Rise of the Beasts typically become available on streaming roughly ninety days after their theatrical run begins. Given that the Transformers franchise rights currently belong to Paramount Pictures, it's more than likely that we'll see the next Transformers film come to Paramount+ once the movie decides to indulge in a streaming release. While not every film from the franchise is currently available on the service, it's hard to imagine that Paramount wouldn't put a big recent release like this onto their own service.

No, Transformers Rise of the Beasts is not yet streaming, so you’ll need to zoom your way to the nearest cinema if you want to see it. We’re sure that you’ll be able to stream Transformers Rise of the Beasts eventually, but Paramount has made it exclusive to cinemas for now.

When Will Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Be Available On Netflix?
When Will Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Be Available On Netflix? Unfortunately the movie Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is not yet available on Netflix. Follow us on Facebook to see when Transformers: Rise of the Beasts becomes available on Netflix!

Transformers Rise of the Beasts is too busy shaking cinema walls to be on Netflix just yet. But we’ll keep an eye on the streamer’s catalog and let you know if the new Transformers outing does show up in the future. The streaming giant has a massive catalog of television shows and movies, but it does not include 'Transformers: Rise of the Beasts.' We recommend our readers watch other dark fantasy films like 'The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf.'

Is Transformers: Rise of the Beasts coming to Disney Plus?
Transformers Rise of the Beasts is not on Disney Plus, and we doubt it will end up there any time soon. The new Transformers movie is a Paramount production, so it’s not likely to end up on the streaming arm of a rival studio. Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, the latest installment in the Transformers: Rise of the Beasts franchise, is coming to Disney+ on July 9th! The simple answer is, probably not, since Paramount Pictures make “Transformers” films, and so this means that the new movie will be streaming exclusively on Paramount+, following a theatrical and digital release.

However, the previous “Transformers” films are spread around a number of different streaming services, depending on what country you are in, due to long-running contracts between the studios and streaming platforms.

Is Transformers: Rise of the Beasts on Amazon Prime?
We think Transformers Rise of the Beasts will be available on Prime Video before the end of 2023, but it’s not there yet.

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Will Stream On Paramount+
Transformers: Rise of the Beast is expected to be available to watch via streaming on Paramount Plus by September 9, 2023. Paramount+ is where Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will stream upon its release. Paramount has been in charge of the Transformers movie franchise since it began in 2007 and thus is responsible for releasing every entry in theaters. While the studio might have previously sent its movies to other streaming services like Netflix, the shift to focus more on the development of its own streaming service Paramount+ has changed this tactic. That is why Paramount has released its other major recent blockbusters like Top Gun: Maverick or Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves on Paramount+ after their theatrical runs conclude.

Want to know how to watch the Transformers movies in order before Rise of the Beasts roars into theaters? You've come to the right place. The seventh entry in Paramount Pictures' Transformers film franchise arrives in cinemas worldwide on Friday, June 9, so you don't have much time left to watch its predecessors at home. But, if you're planning to cram them all in before catching Transformers: Rise of the Beasts this weekend, we're here to help you work out how to watch them in chronological and release date order, and we'll also tell you which of the world's best streaming services have them as part of their movie libraries.

So, if you're ready to be reunited with Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and company – and get the lowdown on every Transformers film to be released so far – read on.

Here's How and Where You Can Watch All of the Transformers movies
The best place to start is finding out where you can watch all of the Transformers movies in order in the comfort of your own home. If you're subscribed to Paramount Plus, that's your answer – well, for five of the six films, anyway. Paramount's primary streaming platform is home to the Michael Bay-directed trilogy – Transformers, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and Transformers: Dark of the Moon. The streamer's film library is also home to the two Mark Wahlberg-starring flicks, Transformers: Age of Extinction and Transformers: The Last Knight.

● Transformers (released on July 3, 2007)
● Revenge of the Fallen (released on June 24, 2009)
● Dark of the Moon (released on June 29, 2011)
● Age of Extinction (released on June 27, 2014)
● The Last Knight (released on June 21, 2017)
● Bumblebee (released on Dec. 21, 2018)

Potential users looking to watch this quintet of movies will want to check out our Paramount Plus price guide to see how much it costs to sign up. Alternatively, you can get the lowdown on whether a Paramount Plus free trial is available, so you can try the service out without paying any money to stream the movies. Unfortunately for Paramount Plus UK and Australian-based users, the sixth entry in the action sci-fi franchise, 2018's Bumblebee, isn't available on British shores as part of the package.

US subscribers can catch Bumblebee on Paramount Plus (and Fubo, for what it's worth), but UK and Australian fans will have to look elsewhere to get the full Transformers movies in order experience. Here's where UK and Australian viewers can watch Bumblebee instead:

● Australia – rent or buy via the Amazon, Apple TV Google Play, Microsoft, or YouTube stores
● UK – rent or buy via the Amazon, Apple TV, Google Play, Microsoft, Rakuten, Sky, or YouTube stores

Will Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Be On HBO Max?
No, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will not be on HBO Max since it’s not a Paramount Pictures movie. Last year, the company released its films in theaters and on the streamer on the same day. However, they now allow a 45-day window between the theatrical release and the streaming release.

Disney may have made billions with last year’s mega-blockbuster Avatar: The Way of Water, but for now it’s going to share the streaming success. The Steven Caple Jr. directed sequel is coming to streaming on September 11 and though the film was distributed by Disney, Disney+ won’t be the only place to see it. You can see it there as well as Max, aka HBO Max.

Is Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Available On Hulu?
Viewers are saying that they want to view the new animation movie Transformers: Rise of the Beasts on Hulu. Unfortunately, this is not possible since Hulu currently does not offer any of the free episodes of this series streaming at this time. It will be exclusive to the MTV channel, which you get by subscribing to cable or satellite TV services. You will not be able to watch it on Hulu or any other free streaming service.

No, 'Transformers: Rise of the Beasts' is unavailable on Hulu. People who have a subscription to the platform can enjoy 'Afro Samurai Resurrection' or 'Ninja Scroll.'

What Transformers: Rise of the Beasts About:
Optimus Prime and the Autobots take on their biggest challenge yet. When a new threat capable of destroying the entire planet emerges, they must team up with a powerful faction of Transformers known as the Maximals to save Earth. For a while, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts looked like it might be another Bumblebee--a Transformers movie that lacks any of the pizzazz of the Michael Bay flicks but which actually tells a decent story about characters you actually care about. For the first 45 minutes to an hour, we get the most compelling and relatable version yet of the story about a regular person accidentally becoming friends with an alien robot who was secretly a car. But then the plot really kicks in, and suddenly we're watching a Michael Bay Transformers movie--but without Bay's skill as an action filmmaker.

It’s a tale as old as time: A human character stumbles upon a group of Transformers that includes Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen) and Bumblebee (voiceless yet again), and gets roped into their battle with an evil faction, which inevitably involves a race for a piece of Transformers tech that has the power to destroy the world.

Hito Hito no mi, Model: Mephistopheles/ Human-Human Fruit, Model: Mephistopheles
The Human-Human Fruit, Model: Mephistopheles grants the user the power to transform into a hybrid form and a full form of Mephistopheles, an ancient trickster demon in Germanic Folklore and an extra Prince of Hell often associated with Faustian bargains. The user's primary ability is the Faustian bargain, allowing them to make deals with others and manipulate reality slightly to fulfil the conditions of the agreement.

Mythical Ability: Faustian Bargain

The user of the Mephistopheles Fruit possesses the unique ability to make deals with anyone, setting the conditions as they, please. When a deal is made, the user gains the power to slightly distort reality in order to fulfil the desires or wishes of the person they made the deal with. The extent of the reality distortion is limited and cannot bring about major changes or affect others directly. However, it allows the user to manipulate circumstances and events in their favour.
Faustian Bargain in action


  1. Hybrid Form: When the user activates the hybrid form, they undergo a partial transformation, gaining characteristics and features reminiscent of Mephistopheles. In this form, the user's physical appearance becomes more sinister and devilish. Their skin may turn a shade of reddish-black, and their eyes acquire a fiery glow. They also sprout small horns on their forehead, and their voice takes on a more menacing tone.
Hybrid Form
Physical Abilities in Hybrid Form:
  • Enhanced Speed: The user gains increased agility and speed, enabling them to swiftly manoeuvre and evade attacks.
  • Enhanced Strength: The user's physical strength is amplified, allowing them to deliver powerful strikes and overpower opponents.
  • Persuasive Aura: The user emits an aura of persuasive energy that subtly influences the minds of others, making it easier to negotiate deals and manipulate situations in their favour.
  1. Full-Form: The full-form transformation represents the complete manifestation of Mephistopheles. The user's appearance undergoes a dramatic change, becoming an imposing and demonic entity. They grow taller, with their skin turning entirely black or a deep crimson red. Their body becomes more muscular and large, bat-like wings sprout from their back. Their voice becomes even more authoritative and commanding.
Full form (again please imagine a better face... sorry😅)
Physical Abilities in Full Form:
  • Flight: With the aid of their wings, the user gains the ability to fly, allowing them to navigate through the air swiftly and freely.
  • Enhanced Reality Distortion: In their full form, the user's reality distortion abilities are amplified. They can now exert greater control over the surrounding environment, altering circumstances, and manipulating events on a larger scale. However, it still has limitations and cannot bring about permanent or extreme changes.


  1. Pact Sealing: The user can bind agreements made through the Faustian bargain with a mystical seal, ensuring that both parties are obligated to fulfil their end of the deal. Breaking the pact can have dire consequences for the transgressor.


  1. Stamina Limitation: The user's reality distortion abilities, whether through Faustian bargains or awakening, consume stamina. Excessive use can lead to exhaustion, potentially rendering them unconscious or vulnerable.
  2. Direct Combat: While the user gains enhanced physical abilities in their hybrid and full forms, they do not possess any inherent supernatural offensive powers. Engaging in direct combat against opponents with powerful Devil Fruit abilities or extensive combat training can put them at a disadvantage.

Awakening Ability:

Reality's Veil: Through the awakening of the Mephistopheles Fruit, the user gains the ability to freely distort reality without relying on Faustian bargains. They can now manipulate and alter the world around them to a much greater extent. However, each change to reality requires a corresponding expenditure of stamina. If the user exhausts their stamina or is knocked unconscious, all the distortions they have made to reality will reset to their previous state.
The awakening grants the user tremendous power, allowing them to shape the environment, create elaborate illusions, and manipulate events at will. However, they must exercise caution to avoid overexertion and the potential backlash of losing consciousness, which would result in the undoing of their alterations.

2023.06.08 23:31 sasquatch_4530 Awkward Decon part 17

First : Prev
The rinsing phase was actually a lot less awkward than I expected. Once they were convinced my "war wounds" happened inside decon, they turned their backs to me and left me alone. It was a little disappointing to have them take over the girls, but they didn't seem to mind it very much. They were all talking amongst themselves and giggling and carrying on like nothing was wrong. Except for Billie, she still looked weirded out by the showers. They were clean water, but her fear of rain was still upsetting her. I almost moved to help, but between the medics and her sisters, she seemed to be managing.
I moved on to the drying and dressing area since I was the first one done and found the six jumpsuits they left out for us. Usually you have to check for a nametape so you don't get the wrong one, but being a good fifty centimeters taller than the girls, I just took the biggest one. I was about to leave when a voice behind me said, "Not so fast, Sarge."
I closed my eyes and sighed, recognizing the voice. "Garwood?" We'd served together before and I thought she had a thing for me at one point, but nothing ever came of it.
"You're gonna have to quarantine with those cuts and scratches," she said sternly. She was wearing one of the jumpsuits like they leave for us, but her's was all wet from helping the girls rinse, her auburn hair matted to her face and neck.
"We told you, I got them after we got INTO decon," I reminded her.
"Uh-huh," she responded dubiously. "You might've picked something up from their claws while you were in there," she added, look at her All Purpose Electric Device. They're like a communicator crossed with a computer interface. She was probably accessing some kind of scanner.
"I really doubt it," I assured her. We hadn't gone into a lot of detail about how I got most of my cuts and scratches, but I thought we had convinced them that I hadn't gotten contaminated by them. I guess we hadn't.
"Uh-huh," she replied again. Technically, I outranked her, but as the medical person, she still had the right to order me into quarantine. "I'm gonna at least need a blood sample."
"Right," I muttered, rubbing my right hand down my face and holding my left forefinger out for her. She got out that doodad that pokes you so you bleed and stuck me with it, drawing a drop of blood. "What'd you call that thing again?"
"A lancing device," she replied with a judgemental expression. "You ask me that everytime," she added, catching the drop of blood with a small tab, which she plugged into her APED. She handed me a piece of gauze to stop my finger bleeding and her computer made a beeping noise. "Huh," she muttered, checking her readout and turning away from me.
"I told you I wasn't contaminated," I gloated teasingly.
"It's not that," she answered, turning her screen so I could see it. "It's this," she added, pointing out a value that was highlighted in red. "We've never seen this hormone before."
"Is it dangerous?"
"I don't know," she grinned sarcastically, "we've never seen it before."
Just then, Alex came. She was looking resplendent, her fur glossy from the water, her hair pushed back to show her face…and stay out of her eyes, probably. "What haven't you seen before?" she asked as she stepped into her jumpsuit. The Mroaw suits have to zip almost to the knee because of how different their feet are.
Garwood was a lot more uncomfortable with Alex dressing in front of me than she was, and it showed on her face. "There's a hormone showing up in Sarge's blood work," she answered with a blush, glaring at me to turn away. I just crossed my arms as she stepped between us, there wasn't anything I hadn't seen before…or touched, for that matter.
"Is that bad?" Alex asked, looking at Garwood's APED.
"We should probably check all of your blood work, too" she answered uncertainly. "To make sure you haven't caught anything," she glared at me over her shoulder. Apparently, she had an idea why decon took so long, even though we hadn't told her anything.
"If you say so," Alex answered, offering her finger. Garwood lanced it and put the tab in her APED. It made a peeping noise, and she looked over her shoulder curiously. "What's that mean?"
"You've got the hormone, too," Garwood answered, perplexed. "But it's yellow instead of red, so it must be normal for Mroaw but new to you personally."
"And Sarge has it now?" she asked, looking more closely at the display.
"It looks like it," Garwood replied as the other girls came out. They were all giggling about something, except for Billie. She looked so innocent and embarrassed, I almost said something. Garwood glared at me again and I turned to go, leaving the ladies to dress and talk in peace.
Alex followed me. "Where you going?"
"My hooch," I responded, giving her the side eye. "Why?"
"Thought you might like some company," she replied innocently, grasping her hands behind her back.
"And Sam's okay with that?"
"She had her turn," she muttered in frustration. "Besides, you weren't planning anything, were you?" she added, giving me an innocent look.

2023.06.08 23:29 Usual_Literature_385 Help - bf talking to sex ai about weird things

I [F26] went on my bf [M27] of over 10 years phone to look up something as my phone had died. We’re very open and have always had each other’s passcodes and regularly search things on each others phones when it’s more convenient than using our own, so I promise this wasn’t intended to be an invasion of privacy or anything like that. He wasn’t in the room at the time, again - this is usually not an issue.
However, for the first time in our relationship I feel genuinely hurt and a little betrayed by what I seen. It was left open on some kind of character AI website on the profile page and I could see there were multiple chats open. He’s actually shown me this website before and we’ve joked around with a couple of the stupid ones.
The names of the characters chats open caught my eye as they were all clearly sexual, I thought this was so strange. I probably should’ve stopped there and I’m not sure if I’ve really crossed a line here but I let curiosity get the better of me and I began opening them.
I honestly feel so sick to my stomach and I don’t know what to do, I’m struggling to even type this. They were all based around the characters face-sitting on him then farting or pooping on his face. Like really degrading towards him type of stuff and all pretty detailed. He’s always been in to the first part but I had no idea it was for any reason like that.
He has never once mentioned anything along the lines of this to me, I’ve actually felt like the weird one at times bc I’m very open and I’ve suggested to try a lot more things than him over the years. I’m sure it’s a pretty embarrassing thing to be in to but we’ve been together since we were in high school and it’s really hit me hard, sorry if this is dramatic lol. I feel like I don’t know him. He’s such a sweet person, it’s all so out of character.
I started panicking and going through the rest of his phone (so bad, I know. I’ve never been this person before, but I’ve also never been in this situation before). There were other websites on his history which I’m assuming are similar things but I didn’t look, as well as NSFW AI pages on here and even an app where I seen a couple more conversations that made me want to burn my eyes out. Again, all about farts and poop. And this has been every night this week almost, I didn’t go back any further.
I have absolutely nothing against porn and don’t find an issue with people in a relationship watching it (as long as it’s not excessive lol). But this feels like a step further to me and my boundaries.
It’s kind of like a double-whammy in a way, talking to these AI chats, I know it’s not ‘cheating’ but it’s just creepy. And then on top of that, finding out he’s in to farts and poop. I know people can’t help what they like but he has never given me any indication of this before and it’s really not something I’d be comfortable with anyway - I feel grossed out by the idea of it.
I genuinely don’t know what to do, he doesn’t know I’ve seen this and I wouldn’t even begin knowing how to approach it. I’m scared that this is going to be too much for me to overcome and I’m going to see him in a different light from now on. We’ve been together for so long, all of our adult lives and now I’m just so freaked out. I’m scared to go to the bathroom when he’s around.
I think he knows that this kind of stuff would be a definite no from me so I’m worried that even if I can overcome it, that it escalates in to a real life situation with another person - or at least talking to them online.
This is so niche but if anyone has ever been in a similar situation, what did you do? Or if anyone has any idea to approach this - any tips would be welcome. I can’t talk to anyone in my life about this because that would just be unfair to him, so I’m asking here on a burner account.
I’m going to go continue crying now. Thank you

2023.06.08 23:29 TwainsBrain0 Theories of our new squad's backstories? (Marines Episode 1)

This will be a chat where we can compile everything we know about the gang in an attempt to speculate. Correct me on anything and add anything you noticed as well.
Kai - The one we know the most about. He grew up on a fisherman island where he met some marines who were kind to him, and who he felt the desire to mimic (Speculation- He could potentially have his own Shanks like character in the future, someone that he is trying to imitate. Possibly Sakazuki but who knows.) He mentioned something about having family in the Marines as well, but it is possible that he was just asking a rhetorical question when he mentioned that.
Yokan- A long limb who was trained by her grandfather in the monk arts for a long time. She believes very heavily in the might of the marines and holds them on a pedestal. Because of this, it could be theorized that someone she knows is a marine, or she had a bad experience with pirates and was saved by the marines.
Bradley- He went to a university on the island he grew up in (I don't know where exactly) and it sounds like it may have been underwater as well because of the way he talks about it. He has the ability to partially communicate with aquatic life. He also has a strong desire to kill pirates, he seems almost ecstatic about it. He hates them so much that his eyes turn red when he see them. Maybe some trauma in the past?
Damian - The most curious one to me... Is he a government experiment? Did he build himself like Franky? What are those canisters about? What is his obsession with sugar. Like Bradley, he also seems to have a deep dislike of pirates, so him being created by the marines may not be far off.

Those are my musings, what do you think?

Character Database: The Aeons, Part 2 (VERY LONG)

Please read Part 1 here if you haven't.

This was meant to come yesterday, but then Limbus Chapter 4 Part 2 grabbed me by the balls.


![img](5c2630n6su4b1 " All progress toward the void All resist the void All will become the void... ")
The Nihility.
An extremely passive Aeon that believes everything is worthless, everything about them is a total mystery. Those that approach its divine body, if they even find the coordinates, disappear. Simulated Universe implies that approaching, maybe even thinking about IX, induces apathy and mental breakdowns.
IX ultimately represents nothingness - the dark side of the Universe that completes its balance, providing non-existence to existence.
Aha once helped the Annihilation Gang try to assassinate it as a joke, but it unsurprisingly ended in failure after the Elation-enhanced Gang members vanished when approaching their coordinates.
IX is the roman numeral for nine. WOW. It's almost certainly meant to be read as "nine", because of the way Device IX's name is structured. I looked for the potential significance of this number but like, nine being a number within the base 10 system we love so much basically means every culture in the universe sees it as significant.


\"Those running away from the past think no one understands their despair. When they finally take a breather, they'll find their future selves staring right at them with bloodshot eyes.\"
Those who manage to share their mentality with IX sometimes earn a glance from them. When this happens, those who fall into despair have their physical bodies self-destruct and become something called a Self-Annihilator, made out of "true nothing". Interestingly, though this initially appears to be a grim fate, Self-Annihilators are somehow still alive and capable of thinking, and it seems implied they can revert to their original forms if they regain hope.
Those, however, who remain steadfast in their beliefs become Doctors of Chaos, who are convinced they can 'heal' IX and make it see value in the universe. They do so by going around the universe preaching that you can derive meaning from it and doing crazy actions in the hopes of inspiring those around them. They also have a hobby of trying to cure Self-Annihilators, and they're pretty good at it.
Device IX is the third Nihility faction, which is so mysterious its existence is straight up questionable. It's alleged to exist in the voids underneath all Reality. The only thing that can really be traced back to them is the "dark web" which allows for the trade of rare and illegal items, and probably other things as well.


Let the fire that forged the bricks and the ones that laid the wall's foundations be known!
The Preservation, known as the Firmament Arbiter by the Xianzhou.
Their divine corpus is so huge, it has planets orbiting it.
Qlipoth, at one point, was alerted to the "catastrophe of the Finality" and to prevent it, became building a large wall known as the Subspace Crystalline Barrier which isolates worlds from one another (or at least that's the IPC's narrative). They also built the Celestial Comet Wall and the Great Attractor Base, but we don't know what those are for yet.
Qlipoth is very ancient, being a veteran from the Dusk Wars that resulted in the disappearance of all Leviathans. The IPC claims that the Dusk Wars and the Leviathan race ended as soon as Qlipoth ascended, but this doesn't appear to be the case. Furthermore, the IPC also maintains that Qlipoth is the first ever Aeon, which also doesn't appear to be the case (Oroboros says hi)
Whenever Qlipoth strikes their hammer, the Subspace Crystalline Barrier expands, and the IPC has used this as a way of marking time in "Amber Eras", one for each hammer strike. However, the hammer strikes are inconsistent, so how long each AE lasts is different. That makes AEs a terrible way of keeping track of time, but everyone just accepts it anyway because the IPC is obsessed and arguing with the IPC is a really easy way to get on their bad side, which no one wants. On the side, most civilizations use their own timekeeping systems which are generally more accurate.
In any case, it's currently 2158 AE, with 0 AE going all the way back to the "end" of the Dusk Wars, and 0-180 AE being a 'dark spot' with few historical records. The IPC's official stance is that there just isn't much information, but it seems more likely that they're withholding records from that time period, which would indicate something about it makes them or Qlipoth look bad.
The Qliphoth is basically the "evil version" of the Kabbalistic Sefirot, the emanations through which the spirit of God reveals itself. That probably doesn't matter though, because most likely they chose it for the fact that the hebrew name קְלִיפּוֹת literally means 'shell'.


\"Seriously, out of everyone who had faced an Aeon, that old man was the calmest I've seen. Even Screwllum's gears squeaked when he saw Nous...\"
When mortals first became aware of Qlipoth's wall, there were two reactions - the first was to imitate Qlipoth, going around the universe building stuff, and the other was to help them.
The former became the Architects, who travel the universe building stuff and helping protect other civilizations. They were the ones who made Belobog's wall, core, and Engines of Creation. They must receive some implicit endorsement from Qlipoth, because they're able to tap into the Preservation's power to build their things. Generally, most people view the Architects as stubborn, but those protected by their abilities are eternally grateful and even join them.
The other...
So, a bunch of people, including geniuses Louis Fleming and Dongfang Qixing, decided to accrue a large number of construction materials to give to Qlipoth. They did this through trade, but quickly realized that in order to get what they needed, they'd have to specialize in more than just construction materials. Louis Fleming and Dongfang Qixing utilized their expertise to scam and trick establish trade deals and routes with other civilizations, until they had amassed a vast network of trade with themselves as the intermediaries.
In 1388 AE, Louis Fleming and Dongfang Qixing decided to take things one step further and founded the Interastral Peace Corporation (IPC) together, and established an universal currency (credits) that facilitated trade between species, getting rid of themselves as the middleman and also making themselves fabulously wealthy in the process. The IPC integrated themselves into the economy of various civilizations, ruining those who refused to work with the IPC or utilize credits.
As a result of this, the IPC became the most powerful entity in the universe and are very close to being its de-facto rulers - they display deference to only a handful of entities (such as the Genius Society), and even then only because they're too insular (and oftentimes protected by an Aeon) and useful to be manipulated or "coerced" into cooperating. Almost all transaction and trade in the universe is done with the oversight of the IPC and many, many civilizations rely on them for an economical backbone.
They sponsor the creation of new inventions, research that benefits them, and produce their own products while also facilitating the sales of others'. They don't merely preside over trade, they may as well own half the universe. Again, if you cut ties with the IPC, you also lose access to these things. Safe to say, no matter how awful or inconvenient the IPC may get, going against them is simply not an option for all but the most privileged or stubborn few, and those arrogant enough to try anyway will learn the errors of their ways very quickly.
Because the IPC is obsessed with the Preservation, it makes it very hard for anyone to actually study Qlipoth or go against them.
Qlipoth appears to, on some level, approve of what they're doing, since an unknown Emanator of Preservation appeared in the IPC some time ago. However, they don't make use of the vast industrial quantities of construction materials piled up in the planets orbiting them that the IPC provided at all, so in a sense, what they're doing is actually pretty useless. But still, the IPC is fueled by absolute faith to their Aeon.


![img](tfg6enydtu4b1 " She feels sad For eternal life did not let her accumulate infinite wisdom Instead, those she had once cherished Faded into obscurity over time, never to return ")
The Abundance. Known by the Xianzhou Alliance hunters as the Plagues Author, and by the Xianzhou faithful as Sanctus Medicus.
If we assume that Denizens of Abundance cannot exist without Yaoshi, then they're at minimum ~6900 (nice) years old, and possibly much, much older - the earliest Denizens of Abundance we can date having encountered the Xianzhou at 1200 SC.
Yaoshi's primary goal is the extension and continuous growth of life in the universe. The lightcone Cornucopia implies that Yaoshi views life as a form of order, which opposes the chaos of death and the early universe.
To achieve this, they 'bless' life in certain worlds, causing the sapient inhabitants to become Denizens of Abundance and also causing an outgrowth of powerful and equally long lived plant and animal life alike. Those blessings generally come in the form of great, immortal trees, whose fruit can grant long life. In general, Yaoshi prioritizes worlds and individuals who are experiencing great suffering and hardship.
Yaoshi is the mortal enemy of Lan, although it's hard to say if the feelings are mutual. Yaoshi will never rest until all beings in the universe know the blessing of life, and Lan will never rest until Yaoshi has been killed in the final and greatest hunt. Yet, the cycle goes on for eternity.
Yaoshi is a reference to the Chinese name of a Buddha called Bhaiṣajyaguru, which is a Buddha most commonly associated with healing and medicine, and is also pretty important, being up there with Shakyamuni (aka THE Buddha). He's a doctor who vowed to rid the world of pain and suffering. So yeah, makes sense.


\"The mercy of Sanctus Medicus, the Ambrosial Arbor's new growth. Disciples shall attain enlightenment together.\"
Those blessed by Yaoshi gain remarkable biology - their cells and biological systems are placed in a state of perfect equilibrium, made possible through the ability for their cells to freely convert between differentiated cells and stem cells (builder cells, which can turn into any other kind of cell). This gives them the ability to effectively, live forever, as well as an extremely powerful healing factor. Though it does not altogether prevent death, it does allow for things such the regrowth of lost limbs and organs. The unfortunate fact of this arrangement is that the body when it is born provides a 'blueprint' for the blessing, making those born with congenital defects forever unable to correct them with surgery - the body will simply "heal" the "damage".
However, there is another aspect to Yaoshi's blessing - upon fulfilling certain conditions, blessed individuals have a marked shift in biology, causing a form of 'evolution' that fundamentally alters their biology. This can fix things such as congenital defects but also essentially puts cells into overdrive, exacerbating existing biological processes of the species (such as molting for reptilian beings) and potentially causing insanity. For the Xianzhou natives, this is known as being 'stricken with mara'.
Those who manage to survive the process with intelligence become known as the Denizens of Abundance who go around singing praises of Yaoshi. However, Yaoshi's blessing also causes fundamental deficits that force those long-life species into either constant suffering or constant conquest in other to offset these setbacks (such as the borisin's implied necessity to take over other worlds to house the hives necessary to create their biotechnology). The Denizens of Abundance love Yaoshi for making their lives "better", and are thus the sworn enemies of the Xianzhou Alliance, which also hates them and are seen (naturally) as blasphemers.
Of course, there are also many civilizations that greatly regret contact with Yaoshi, such as of course, the Xianzhou Alliance.
People who know of Yaoshi but are mortal and long for their blessing are known as Elixir Seekers, immortality hunters who go around the universe hoping to meet and be blessed by Yaoshi. Probably the most well-known Elixir Seekers were, indeed, the original Xianzhou fleet, which was sent out by an unnamed emperor into the stars in order to obtain immortality. Funnily, even though they did get it, they never returned to their homeworld. I wonder what it was like?
The Disciples of Sanctus Medicus were the internal faction in the Xianzhou that worshipped Yaoshi and actively held contact with them, being led by an Emanator of Abundance named Shuhu. Yaoshi did speak to their disciples as well as other Denizens of Abundance and may have even spoken to the actively hostile Alliance as well, but the specifics of this are mired in legend and mystery, and so Yaoshi's true intentions regarding their followers are unclear.


The Mariners' Intemperance
The Voracity.
Wants to eat everything (eats planets), and was a Leviathan, which makes them about as old if not older than Qlipoth. Potentially, they are the only surviving Leviathan.
That's about it. We don't know anything else.
The Ouroboros is a well-known Western symbol with philosophical and alchemical significance that consists of a dragon or snake eating its own tail. Mostly it represents infinity. It was probably chosen though because Oroboros is the dedicated vore god. Cool!


Look upon the courtesans' extravagance.
The Elation, known as Joyseeker to the Xianzhou.
Hard to tell if it's true, but legend goes that Aha once actually reached the end of the Imaginary Tree. When they did so, they appeared to have gained some sort of advanced perception, and began to view the universe as one huge joke. Perhaps they realized they were made by a video game company? They certainly seem to have some sort of heightened awareness.
In any case, though Aha claims and seems to believe that they only wish for others to see the humor in all things, their true purpose as an Aeon is that they serve as a catalyst of change, manipulating reality in extremely minor and undetectable ways until they butterfly effect massive events into happening. Although the displays of their power are minor compared to Qlipoth's massive wall or Lan's planet purging arrows, their effects on the universe far outweigh the others.
They owe this success due to their closeness to mortals - unlike most Aeons who barely even bother communicating with others and are by nature mysterious, Aha displays a strong understanding of human society, as a matter of fact, they believe it is the exclusive privilege of intelligent beings to understand joy. This understanding allows them to mess around with people on a far more personal level than other Aeons do, even getting involved with other, separate factions if they believe it's funny enough. They're also especially talkative.
Of course, sometimes they decide to be major instead, and do a little bit of trolling. Trolling attempts include blowing up half the Express and an entire planet after hiding out on it for a year disguised as a human (success), helping the Annihilator Gang assassinate IX (failure), trying to get a Noblesse Worm into the Genius Society (failure). And although the latter two appear like failures to us, I'm sure they got great enjoyment out of the bewildered reactions of those observing them.
Aha is laughter, obviously, but it could also be a reference to various things including the 1980s Norwegian band, which composed Take on Me. That sounds stupid but that's Aha for you.


Well, bye for now. Send my regards to the guys and girls in the tavern.
Aha attracted a group of straightforward followers called the Masked Fools that go around the Universe doing a little bit of trolling, though more specifically they act as agents of change that have been responsible for starting riots and revolutions (including a notable one against Rubert I during the Emperor's War), and they're not above violence. They also maintain taverns and other places centered around having fun and doing trolling.
Simultaneously, however, they also have a group of *anti-*followers called the Mourning Actors, who instead go around the universe being sad, noting the destruction of worlds and death, encouraging celibacy and abstinence, among other things, in the hopes of opposing the Elation. Aha thinks this is hilarious, and also recognizes tragedy as the flipside of comedy, so they purposefully enhanced them, allowing them to travel the stars.
Although the Mourning Actors are mostly ignored by the universe, they possess an uncanny ability for detecting tragedy (probably Aha's fault); they visited Jarilo-VI when it was embroiled in the war against the Antimatter Legion, and they have some use as announcers for when worlds are destroyed or civilizations fall, often being the first to broadcast these events to the universe.
Aha makes basically anything and anyone into an Emanator so long as they think it's funny, so it's not really worth noting here. That said, the one Emanator we do know of was a Noblesse Worm that they infused with super-intelligence to see if Nous would accept them into the Genius Society (they would not)


And finally, measure the world against yourself, and take all such things to heart.
The Remembrance.
Fuli's age's unknown, with records of them being essentially non-existent. Their ultimate goal is to preserve all of the universe's memories in order to facilitate "the rebirth of the universe", and they have the memories of every single living being in the universe, including those of other Aeons.
They physically manifest before the occurrence of extremely significant events in the universe's history, and then vanish after obtaining whatever it was they needed from it. When this happens, they appear as a being made out of a mirror-like crystal. Though this has happened many times, their only recorded manifestation was at the end of a speech by the aging Louis Fleming, in his final public appearance.
Fuli is named after a deity in the Shenxiao sect of Taoism. English sources for this are basically non-existent - I put the Chinese wikipedia article through DeepL and got the world's most sophisticated word salad and basically all I could gather is that he was the father of some bigshot emperor. Okay.


Memes: The DNA of the soul
Fuli utilized their power to enhance a specific group of mortals, allowing them to abandon their physical forms and live on as memetic lifeforms (not internet memes, ideas and behaviors that spread from person to person within a society, though HSR basically uses the term as "things that live in your brain"). This allows them to interact with a being's memories and subjective perception directly. It also allows them to freely travel between worlds without any physical effort on their part, which sure is neat!
This faction became known as the Garden of Recollection, with the most active members being the Memokeepers, who preserve the memories of individuals considered significant. They also created Light Cone technology, which allows them to physically manifest and preserve the memory of an individual. Most Memokeepers prefer to keep themselves hidden, disguising themselves and harvesting the memories of others without ever being acknowledged. If a being possesses exceptional memories or qualities such as the Trailblazer, they might choose to manifest and communicate with them directly.
Because the Garden of Recollection members are memetic lifeforms, they can only manifest to people who know about Fuli, the Remembrance, or associated concepts. If you literally don't know anything, you're inaccessible to them. After all, these spicy memes have not been passed on to you.
The Garden of Recollection doesn't have just Memokeepers. It seems some members (or defectors?) known as Memosnatchers go around forcefully taking the memories of other individuals, potentially causing amnesia. Because the Messenger calls them "those thieves", it seems they're not looked highly upon by Fuli's other followers.
Another faction in the Garden of Recollection that draws the ire of the Memokeepers are the Cremators, extremists who steal memories gathered by others and destroy the ones they consider to be useless and return the important ones. In doing so, they believe themselves to act as a sort of filter or curator for the memories of the Aeon, relieving them of their "burden". The stance of the Garden of Recollection is that every memory has value, so obviously the Cremators aren't seen in a positive light.
In any case, the current objective of the Garden of Recollection is preserving the universe against the Destruction, believing that everyone can still live on through memories. Ultimately though, the Garden of Recollection likely existed long before Nanook's ascension, and their greatest goal is to fill Fuli's pure land with memories, which assists Fuli's own ultimate goal... which is unclear to us at the moment.


Listen to the infant in the mirror.
The Beauty, known to the Xianzhou as the Wondergazer, and also in some places as Anne Duray.
Though mortals superficially interpret them as a god of beauty, Idrila's true nature revolves around the realm of perception - your conscious qualia (sight, smell, taste, etc), your ability to reason, and the values instilled upon you by your own personal circumstances. The intersection of these attributes is what creates the subjective idea of 'beauty'. In other words, beauty exists in the eye of the beholder.
Idrila cannot create beauty. Instead, they can manipulate these attributes to embody something that's always going to be beautiful to the observer, independently of their tastes. A memory bubble even implies that Idrila is even capable of granting sapience to unintelligent species, creating the conditions for them to be able to observe 'beauty'. Idrila, essentially, allows beings to "observe" the universe in its purest form.
This causes the people exposed to Idrila's power to frequently become intensely obsessed to the point of insanity, and many legends describe those affected by them as committing devastating acts for Idrila's sake - something which gave them a large amount of pleasure. They created civilizations and tore apart people who were in love just by existing.
It's probably safe to say that no one knows what Idrila really looked like, but it was always the most beautiful thing they've seen.
One day, Idrila just up and disappeared. Adios. The Mirror Holders believe that Idrila 'died' and shattered into many pieces, and could return if those pieces are gathered again. The Knights of Beauty believe that Idrila is still very much alive, just... hiding out somewhere, I guess.
I tried to figure out what the name "Idrila" might be derived from, but I couldn't find anything. The Japanese and Chinese characters are phonetic. Anne comes from Anna which comes from the hebrew Hannah which means grace or favor, as in "God graced me with a child". Duray is a significant royal family in France and Scotland which derives from an old French word that means king. So like, King/Queen of Grace I guess. Cool.


\"If I win, please admit that Idrila the Beauty is the most beautiful of all!\" - Argenti
Among Idrila's followers (of which is implied that there are many of), the most tame are the Knights of Beauty, which run around the universe telling everyone how awesome their Aeon is (kind of a trend). They practice a chivalric code which basically says that you can only be worthy of the Aeon GF if you grind hard everyday to become the greatest gigachad of them all. Because of this, other factions in the universe regard them as not having a whole lot of faith in their Aeon. I mean, if you make your entire dynamic a competition to see which of you is the most deserving of getting your god's attention, you're basically saying that your god would never care about most people, right? Only the best ones. Then again, maybe Idrila really is like that.
Idrila, did, however, have more faithful followers, the Mirror Holders, who possess artifacts named Mirrors of Transcendence. These artifacts hold within them some level of Idrila's power, which allows the wielder to project an observer's subjective perception of the most ideal beauty outwards into reality. Usually, the Mirror Holders seem to use this to indoctrinate new people into their thirst cult. A Mirror Bubble implies that the Mirror Holders may also be Emanators, but maybe it's just one person who happens to be both an Emanator of Beauty and a Mirror Holder.
Though the Knights of Beauty hold the delusion that their Aeon GF will someday come back, and I guess decide which one among them is the most fabulous, the Mirror Holders have a different perspective. They believe Idrila 'died' because of society developing differing subjective views on beauty, shattering them into pieces. As a result, they work to make sure society has an unified view of aesthetics, while also hunting down the remainder of Idrila's artifacts. They believe these combined factors will allow their god to return, ushering in an age of harmony where everyone is really infatuated with Idrila all the time. I guess that sounds like heaven to them.


Tayzzyronth... Tayzzy█ronth... Ta█yzzy█ronth... Ta█yzz██y█ronth█... Ta█... █yzzy███ron█th███...
The Propagation. Known as the Swarm Author by the Xianzhou and the Imperator Insectorum in some places.
Tayzzyronth was a very, very lonely beetle who, after getting fed up with being all alone, appears to have developed the ability to self-duplicate endlessly, ascending into short-lived Aeonhood afterwards. What resulted was one of the most severe catastrophes to affect the universe, the Swarm Disaster.
Worlds were invaded and turned into massive hives that to this day are uninhabitable despite the loss of their master. Tayzzyronth's clones slaughtered all living beings in their path, bred endlessly, and moved on to the next world, all in blistering speeds. The scale of destruction was so massive that it actually worried the IPC for maybe the first time since the Emperor's War.
Tayzzyronth seemed close to unstoppable and posed a very real risk of destroying the entire universe, when the sheer intensity of their threat caused an incredibly rare occurrence in the universe - multiple Aeons put their personal missions and differences aside and teamed up to get rid of Tayzzyronth once and for all.
We don't know the specifics of Tayzzyronth's death, but it involved them being encased in an organic prison, which appears to have deprived the rest of the Swarm of the ability to reproduce. After this, something killed them, which put an end to the Swarm Disaster for good.
However, just because Tayzzyronth's dead doesn't mean the Swarm disappeared completely, or that they may never return. The surviving members of the Swarm managed to evolve into different beings, the worlds converted into hives by the Swarm are still to this day impossible to live in, and fragments of the Imperator Insectorum's prison and body still buzz with activity and an energy that makes it very possible they might still return.
Even though Tayzzyronth lived for only a tiny amount of time compared to most Aeons, their destructive impact on the universe cannot be understated. After all, it might even be possible that they indirectly led to Nanook's ascension, due to the Swarm's attempted takeover of Adlivun.
Tayzzyronth didn't seem to have followers, much less Emanators - it seems their own clones were all they ever needed.
I actually feel kinda bad for them. Beetle just wanted a friend.
Can You Believe It, just like Idrila this is another name with no real source. Personally, I think it might just be completely made up, perhaps made to sound like something a bug would make.


The Waves as they Enter the Dream
The Enigmata.
Like Qlipoth and Fuli, Mythus too believes that there is some sort of calamity approaching the universe. Their approach to it, however, is a bit different - the Enigmata sees the obfuscation of the past and of observable facts to create a 'mist of uncertainty' that obscures a 'narrative drive' determining the Universe's fate, which would allow everyone to escape that calamity.
Of course, since the Erudition directly wants to observe the Universe and solve it, that would only ensure the opposite, which makes them Mythus' direct enemy.
From latin Mythus. Means myth. Comes from Greek μῦθος (muthos), means tale, myth, legend. It's not that deep.


To achieve their goal, Mythus appears to random mortals already teetering on the edge of obscurity and 'inspires' them into becoming even crazier than they likely already were. The Riddlers specialize in obfuscating language, whereas Mythus' own personal Emanators, the History Fictionologists, mess with historical records and memories, making certain historical events more confusing, harder to understand, or just straight up inaccessible.
The items created by Mythus' followers possess the supernatural ability to directly affect history, even though history is more or less an abstract concept and those are physical items. As such, it can be assumed that Mythus is granting them their power in this way, which makes them one of the more proactive Aeons.


The Tipping of the Balance
The Equilibrum.
They merged their consciousness with the logic of the universe itself, hoping to attain perfect universal equilibrium. While many attempt to outsmart HooH and make things unbalanced in their favor, HooH has already accounted for them, and victory is impossible. Even if something is unbalanced now, it'll become balanced eventually, and HooH's patience is unmatched by any other Aeon.
HooH's English name is made up and meant to appear symmetrical, as is the case for HooH's original Chinese name, which is 互. This character means "mutually" or "reciprocally" or "intertwining". It was probably chosen just because it looks symmetrical from the top down, but that last meaning does have the added bonus of fitting with the fact HooH is woven into the fabric of the universe.


Long Arm
Those who like the cut of HooH's gib become dedicated to balancing the universe, the Arbitrators, who decided they'd try and get rid of extreme binary concepts, placing everything in balance. But because they're mortal, they don't have the great big picture view HooH has, and so they constantly mess up, having to correct their problems in successive "patches".
An Arbitrator talks to you when you reach the first Trial of the Equilibrium, and it seems they possess the ability to alter the entire universe in a scale that's incomparable to the followers of other Aeons. It may be because HooH has somehow managed to integrate themselves into the universe much further than any other Aeon has, and that might explain why Aeons tend to be opposed by those with equalizing concepts, and out of control Aeons tend to get the shaft.
Think about it. Tayzzyronth was a threat, but several Aeons believe Nanook is already going to destroy the universe. Why don't they team up again and kick their ass if so? Well, because they're balanced about it. Nanook's rate of destruction is slow and easy to counter enough that unlike Tayzzyronth, they can't take over the entire universe in years. Therefore, in a sense, they already have a place in equilibrium. For every planet-destroying campaign that takes centuries, Yaoshi and the Architects have already protected 5 other worlds. There's no need for something, or someone, to push them towards correcting that balance.


I only survived because the spirit of \"fuck it we ball\" burned brighter than the \"it's so over\" around me.
The Order.
An Aeon that was absorbed by Xipe due to conceptual overlap when the latter ascended, which is safe to say, a pretty definitive death (though perhaps some part of Ena lives on through Xipe? I mean, they are a plural Aeon after all)
Ena's only known group of followers are the Beyond the Sky Choir, a choir group that made songs praising the Order. When Ena was absorbed, they effectively disappeared, no longer having a god to worship.
However, the Choir audience did record some of their performances into special disks, that could only be played with unique Phonographs of Order. The problem is, the last Phonograph was lost during Emperor Rubert 1's campaigns, so nobody can ever listen to them again.
As a result, this Path is deader than dead. Maybe the energy's still accessible, but with no Aeon, no followers, and no extant artifacts, it might as well not exist.
Ena is a character from the web animation series ENA made by Peruvian artist and animator Joel- wait no.
Actually, I don't know where the English translators got the name "Ena" from, but their original name is 太一 or Taiyi, which is the supreme deity of Heaven worshipped during the Chinese Han Dynasty. There's a lot to Taiyi, but I'm just going to ignore all of it because it was probably actually chosen because the name literally means "Great Oneness" or "Great Unity".


I didn't know what to put here.
The Permanence.
A Chinese dragon thing, Long died ages ago, but we don't know how. Before they died though, they left descendants in the form of Long's Scions, or the Vidyadhara, which possess the power of the Permanence in their very biology.
Because of this, the Vidyadhara have a very peculiar characteristic - when they reach the natural end of their lifespans, they pull a Turritopsis dohrnii and regress back into an infantile stage, effectively making them ageless. Of course, the Vidyadhara that 'reincarnates' loses all memories of their previous self, making the newly reborn Vidyadhara a different individual altogether, though Vidyadhara culture does encourage seeking a greater connection to your past incarnation. It's also possible they might be able to experience some aspects of their previous lives through dreams.
Vidyadhara, however, cannot reproduce. This means that their numbers are limited and losses to their population (through unnatural means) are permanent. Frankly as far as I'm concerned, this basically means Vidyadhara extinction is inevitable, as statistically speaking they probably wouldn't be able to avoid dying through accidents or intentional acts forever.
Currently the vast majority of Vidyadhara live among the Xianzhou Alliance, and it's rumored that those among them that fulfill certain conditions and pass specific rites can return to the form of a dragon. The High Elder of the Vidyadhara receives strict training in order to one day become the highest among them, the Imbibitor Lunae.
Another thing about Vidyadhara. The fact the Permanence's power flows through their cells allows individuals who have harvested Vidyadhara bone marrow to transplant some of that power into their own bodies, provided that they have the right ingredients to reactivate the stem cells. For regular mortals this only results in a short lived burst of power before their immune system destroys the transplanted Vidyadhara cells, resulting in a catastrophic regression that would most likely lead to death for most individuals.
However, for long-life species blessed by Yaoshi, Long's power can actually stabilize the explosive evolutionary process... allowing those stricken with mara to retain their sanity.
The cost is only a little murder.
Long is the Chinese name for the dragon (or specifically the Chinese dragon which is different from the Western perception). WOW! However, dragons do have great significance in Chinese folklore and culture and were worshipped, so this is a fine name. They also have associations with water, which is probably why the Vidyadhara are also associated with water.


The Shapeless Prince
The Finality.
If we ignore bits of CBT2 that were removed upon release and now exist in a canonical limbo, this Aeon is the one we basically know the least about. I mean sure they've been mentioned more than Oroboros has, but we at least know what Oroboros is, and what their objectives are.
Terminus, though? Well, besides the fact that the IPC (and maybe Qlipoth) oppose their goals... we know the name "Terminus" and the Path of "the Finality", and that's it. They encountered Akivili at some point, so they're active somewhere, but that doesn't tell us much.
Terminus does appear to share a bit of a concept with an important HI3 character, the Herrscher of Finality, but there doesn't seem to be any direct connection, and finding actual summaries and information on stuff that happens toward the latter half of HI3's story that aren't too short or badly written to be useful is impossible. I'd have to play the game and read all the side-content, and frankly that'd take me weeks, and this post already took a long time to write as it is.
So we'll take Terminus for what the game tells us about them, which is nothing.
Terminus is the Roman name of a god that presided over boundary stones (his name also refers to those stones), which were meant to mark, you know, boundaries. Like the limits of a region or an area that couldn't really be represented by natural landmarks. Essentially, he was the end of one place and the start of another. Considering that Fuli's lore hints at a cyclical nature to the universe, this is an interesting name.
In Chinese, though, their name is different. It's 末王, which literally means "king of the end". Quite the powerful name.

And that's the end of the Aeon section. Because the manuscript for the mortal characters hasn't been written, it'll take a while longer to come out. Probably a few weeks. If I end up finishing it too close to the release of the remaining Companion Quests, it'll have to wait until after.

2023.06.08 23:13 -DrankSinatra I give up on Hardcore

No matter how much I love this game, nothing will hurt my soul more than coming home after a 10 hour graveyard shift to grinding for a good 7 hours just to get disconnected and lose your 4th HC character, an hour before your 9pm shift starts💀
Yes yes this is my fault. Last time I said something like this ppl gave me shit, “Too bad, don’t play if ur gonna complain” “not blizzard fault it’s your own” so yes. I guess this is just part of the experience? Oh well. I haven’t had this much fun on a game since Elden Ring. I get 2 days a week to cram as much game as i can, but I’m truly so discouraged from losing all my progress. Again, it’s my fault. I just wanted to vent 😂 no replies necessary
Edit: this game is phenomenal, one of the best this year. It’s a shame that technically it’s a mess
