2023.03.30 07:34 bfriendenvy I’m Jealous Of My Best Friend

Excuse any mistakes or formatting issues, this is just me trying to collect my thoughts I guess.
Context: Both me and my friend are nonbinary and they use they/them pronouns, however we are both genetically female.
I (19) met my best friend Angel (20) a few months ago as we had class together and we ended up bonding over mutual interests. Over the months we became almost inseparable and I would be lying if I said I didn’t love them to death. Angel is the sweetest and most genuine person you could ever meet. They’re empathetic, funny, caring, and basically get along with every person they meet.
The issue I’ve started to have with Angel is that they seem too perfect and make me realize how inferior I am to them. We’re basically opposites and they are everything that I am insecure about. I am short, chubby, have no idea how to do makeup or do my hair and basically always just look like I rolled out of bed. Angel on the other hand is the ideal goth babe that everyone fawns over. 6ft tall, slim but curvy, bright eyes, and they always look perfect without even trying. I am super eccentric and loud where they are more gentle and soft spoken. I try to learn a skill for months and still can’t do it where Angel can try for all of two seconds and master basically anything they try. Long story short, I look like a complete failure next to them. Everyone fawns over Angel and I always end up pushed aside because I’m not as perfect. I’ve even lost multiple friends in the past because they faked being friends with me as a way to get closer to them. I’ve tried so hard to make myself more appealing but I always come up short and it’s really starting to screw with my self confidence. It just got worse recently after Angel and I went to comic con together and I realized then just how unfairly different we are treated.
Angel and I are both cosplayers and decided to make matching cosplays from our favorite anime to go to a con together. I will admit I am still very new to making cosplays but I was very proud of the work that I put in. However, during the whole con everyone fawned over Angel and their cosplay while I was mostly ignored. It felt like we couldn’t even walk two steps before they were crowded and asked for pictures. I ended up carrying our bags for most of the time and didn’t really get to enjoy myself because Angel kept getting pulled away. I know that other peoples reaction isn’t their fault and they tried to include me as often as they could but I admit I’m still a bit mad over the whole thing. This has just made me realize that no matter what I do I will never be on their level and that fact hurts me way more than I’ve been willing to admit.
I know that my insecurities are my fault and it's not fair to Angel but I can’t help but envy them the more I hang out with them. I feel like hanging out with them is just pointing out everything wrong about myself and I don’t know what to feel about it. I thought about talking to Angel about this but I know it will just make them feel bad so I’m hesitant to do so and I’m not sure what else I can do. I love Angel so much and they are like a sibling at this point so I don’t want to end our friendship but I don’t know how much more my confidence can take being around them. I feel like such a bad friend and I’m not sure what I’m supposed to do or think at this point.

2023.03.30 07:31 PretzelEminem I got theories, my friend

I got theories, my friend
Hello neighbors!
I’ve been hungrily reading and watching any theories I can find on this wonderfully whimsical neighborhood, and I wish to toss my hat and conjectures into the ring. I’ve broken them up below, but they are all twining together in my head, and I have some clashing as well, but this is too fun.
Theory #1:
We have all seen the spiral imagery all over as well as doodles. The most significant is the spiral under home’s location on the mobile website. I have two thoughts: 1) this is a portal between the world we know and the puppet world. 2) It’s a camera lens. 3) It’s both (lol)

Mighty sus, I gotta say

  1. Portal: Or a threshold, as you could say. There are at least two sentient beings that we know of through their interactions with us and the website, Wally and Home. They are frequently lumped together despite Home being “alive.”
“A notable characteristic of Wally is his house named Home. Home is regarded as the ninth neighbor, but seemingly cannot speak as illustrations show Home speaking only in onomatopoeias.(Creak, Squeak, Bang.)”
I wonder if Wally’s sentience comes from his living in home, and caretaking. It’s hard to say when his sentience started, if it took place before, during, or after the episodes. I think objects gain qualities when bestowed with time and energy, and Wally would have certainly had the most attention as the main character in the show and merchandising. I also think it’s interesting how he wants to make sure everyone knows he’s a puppet, and will correct if said otherwise. He’s self-aware. He’s the most, as he would say.
One thought is that Wally became sentient under Home’s influence, although I don’t know if Home has negative intentions, or is simply a conduit between our worlds. Home doesn’t give me malicious vibes, and maybe it’s because of its silly googly eye looking self. They’re sad, and sometimes they looks positively frightened. Even in the “so below” image, the shaking eyes look like they’re scared. Eyes are the windows to the soul, as they say.

They scared!
Also, Home can be controlled by outside sources. I mean, they all can, they’re puppets, but I think this bit is important.
“Sources say, however, that this puppet’s eyes could move through a hand crank on the other side of the prop facing away from the camera. Additionally, it’s doors, chimney, and windows were supposedly very animated during episodes.”
Speaking of the “so below” image, it can be taken a lot of ways. Worship has been a prominent theory, especially with Wally’s pose, the golden muntin (new vocab word!) which looks quite a bit like an upside down cross. Also what looks quite a bit like blood splatter… And Wally’s the one in red… (sus) (jk love u wally) (you are my best friend) I'm just sayin, Wally's the painter here. That house doesn't have hands... Or weapons.
This also puts Wally in and interesting place as either a Guide between worlds, after all, he does like to greet the new residents and show them around… He is definitely home’s handler, and I don’t know what to make of that. I find it particularly interesting how he is frequently shown opening and closing the shutters, particularly in the eerie “There he is!” image.

Kinda sus there, babes... unless he's helping home! how sweet
Wally is also very in-tune with house’s communication system and house’s needs. He sings a lullaby softly to put them to sleep, I would imagine the shuttering would help as well. He also tells us to “Then be quiet.” in the “can you see me?” secret page. I think darkness is so interesting here. Usually it’s associated with the bad, but in this, it seems safer than being in the light.
(I want Wally to be good. Or morally grey. LOL I know this all will destroy me.)

He kinda sly w/ it.

Um, who's talking here?? Also the hand? Also, why's he painting with house paint (sus)
2) Camera Lens: I’m not familiar with cameras. I just think of a lens when I stare into the swirly darkness there. Obviously this is a TV show, and if they were filming, they wouldn’t have done it from home’s perspective, but I do think it could be representative for those that are aware. The lens could also be a stand in for the eyes.
I looked into this idea of aperture, meaning the opening in the lens diaphragm. It’s a lot like the pupil of an eye because it opens and closes to control the light intake. It is also often depicted in a spiral. (!!!) (Conjecture, your honor!)

It's a reach, but what if ;)
Anyways, I am getting sleepy, so I’m gonna pack this up, but please share any thoughts, questions, concerns!! This is my first ARG to experience, and it is my existence.
I have a lot of thoughts about colors I will add tomorrow if I remember or if anyone is interested lol. (That’s just me everyday though, hehe)
Also about Barnaby! I’m worried about the pup!
Also puppets. But you already know that.
Rest assured, there will be a part two regardless if anyone wants it!!

AdAAlso, I lightened up this image a bit. Why's he watching from the bottom left?? Made me jump!!! First the puppet hand and now his reflection.
Look at this too. Final thoughts lol
Lightened it up. Definitely Wally's handiwork and paint. It matches his palette in his bio pic. And color palette lol Also why was this pic taken in a sketchy location? Many questions for the \"restorers.\" Also long fingers but maybe I'm just silly. If it is not intentional, they are normal hands and I'm sorry!

2023.03.30 07:29 bellethatpsy 29 [F4R] MST/Online: chat friend

Hey, r4r. I’m up and I am looking to relax with some friendly, platonic chat.
I think I have pretty standard online/nerdy hobbies - I read a lot of scifi/fantasy, play singleplayer video games on PC/Switch, and watch a lot of seasonal anime. I'm going to be taking some night classes soon and then I'll be studying web development in the near future.
Outside of my hobbies, I consider myself to be a rather spiritual person. I practice a lot of self-care through yoga, meditation, mindfulness, exercise, journaling, and overall trying to look at the world through the lenses of loving-kindness and radical acceptance.
I guess that’s all, I won’t ramble. send a PM or (preferably)chat if you’re interested! Please be 25+, 420 friendly, and an LGBTQ ally. Platonic only. Thanks!
disclaimer: I’m not single and not looking for anything romantic.

2023.03.30 07:27 Shan3101 Sweet or Spicy Take

I have a pretty bad ranking of the series. Not going to share as that’s not what I am discussing in this post. My top 2 are Omniverse and UA in an order I can’t fully decide. One of the thing I don’t understand is why people have to deviate from these groups so much. I’m personally someone who actually grew up with Omniverse so it has that nostalgia for me. Ultimate Alien is one of the most solid shows and it’s hard to argue against it. Ultimate Alien is really just taking a lot of the good attributes of AF and inserting it into a different show. I have to say Ultimate Alien has the best plotlines throughout the entire show. Aggregor is a villain who is excellent at giving Ben consequences for his actions. Ultimate Kevin shows the side of Ben that’s not completely in the right. The Dagon Arc develops many old plot threads to unify them as one. Ben’s choice with Ascalon is my favorite moment in the franchise. When Ben got control of Alien X, I had friends who said now it’s a power trip, and Ben has infinite power. His choice with Ascalon defines his character through the franchise excellently despite all the misrepresentation of Ben since AF S3. UA is an amazing series. Then you have Omniverse. Omniverse was a total shift in everything from UA. Plotlines still amazing to me with Malware and the Time War of course. Alien X was able to live up to the hype it should have in AF. Ben is at his peak. The animation is quite unique and contrasts UAFs. The fights are more hyped up like OG. As cool as Ultimate Kevin vs Ultimate Echo Echo was the fighting was underwhelming. Omniverse is a show that is very well rounded to do the best it can. Feedback is a top 10 for me, however I do wish Way Big could have taken a big W.
Tldr; UA and Omniverse are both fantastic and the arguing and “only one can remain” type mindset need to end.

2023.03.30 07:26 toastymctoast10 New World Blues Ch 30: For all we know

?????, ???????, Griffion territory
March 23rd, 2291
The Slepnir trotted down the destroyed snow-covered highway slowly.
"So a guy throws a ball at a guy holding a bat and the guy with the bat's job is to hit the ball out of the stadium?"
"Yes, that's called a home run."
"And that lets everyone standing on the bases run to home for free?"
"Yep, how did you never hear about baseball?
"Locked in a test chamber remember."
"Well yeah but still, I figured the scientists would mention it."
"It sounds fun, you should take me to a game when we get back."
"That's a promise, as long as you root for the Boneyard bashers."
"Nevermind. Listen I say we rest here for the night pick up in the morning."
Frank nudged the horse slightly and soon began to slowly lead it off the highway to a broken-down home.
"Which room do you want?"
"I'll take a top-floor one. Hopefully, there's a bed, unlike the last one."
Wendy hopped off the horse as Frank lifted open a garage door.
"Got any potatoes left?"
"Yeah let me grab it."
Wendy took her backpack off and reached inside. As she did Frank took the horse inside and left it unhitched.
"Last one."
"'s fine give it to Unica...I hate that name still."
"Well, it's what I picked."
Wendy took the potato from the pouch and fed the mutant horse. Frank looked at Wendy and smiled from the inside of his helmet. As the horse gobbled down the last of the potato Wendy turned to face Frank who was taking out the pot and stove to cook.
"So where are we?"
"Should be near Denver"
"Then why does that sign say Wyoming?"
Frank looked up and followed Wendy's hand out to a sign by the start of the street. A small makeshift sign said Wyoming followed by gibberish. Frank took out the map he had stored with him and looked around.'s winter we're good.
"Alright, fuck me.....I took us the wrong way."
"What now?"
"Nothing. We just rest and go back to where. I'll stay guard when you go to sleep."
"I can find out where exactly we are...."
"Okay get inside quickly."
5 minutes later
Frank grumbled and groaned as he set up the cooking set and began cooking. Wendy held the 5.56 revolver as she stood guard, Frank seemed extra nervous he had locked the doors and even had his new colt revolver next to him hammer cocked.
"So what exactly is out here?"
"Nothing nice, we shouldn't have to worry but still."
"Okay..don't you think I ought to know-
Frank clattered the spoon on the pot as he called to her. She holstered the revolver and walked over.
"So what's on the menu today?"
"Chef Kingly proudly presents 200-year-old instant mash."
She turned and sat down as he got her plate ready.
"Not my fault you wanted to take the shot on the radstag instead of letting me."
"I know but you couldn't have just made the mac and cheese?"
"I'm kidding it's Salisbury steak. Come on dig in."
Frank handed her a fork and the plate as she sighed.
"I believed you for a second."
"I know you did."
Frank cut a piece of meat off and shoved it into his mouth as he chuckled.
"Mmm (swallow) I remembered a joke..."
Frank cleared his throat as Wendy looked at him confused.
"Why was the mutant worried his friend was sick?"
"I......don't know why?"
"He was a little green."
Wendy groaned as she took a sip of water.
"That was awful."
"Oh please, you loved it."
Wendy smiled as she continued to eat.
"Get better material."
The two ate in silence before Wendy asked again.
"Do you know what FEV is?"
"Forced evolutionary virus, it's the thing that made all super mutants and gave you your abilities according to what I know about psykers...why do you ask?"
"Just curious."
"Yeah, we learned about the stuff in training, found out about it after mom was a trooper then."
"What was at Navarro?"
"Old Enclave research base forced people to evolve using the goop."
Wendy looked at her plate and then at Frank
"Frank, what's out there?" She said sternly
"Out where?"
Wendy pointed to the door behind her.
"You seemed nervous lately and even more now."
"Raptors...they're hybrid cat-bird things, according to our biologists back in California they're the same story as deathclaws. Some pre-war army bastards wanted expendable killing machines so turned to nature, mixed wild cats with old birds of prey, then they got a dose of FEV."
"Wait deathclaws were made with FEV?"
"Yeah...why do you think they're bullet resistant."
"I just thought they were tough-skinned....but you killed deathclaws with ease. Raptors can't be that big of an issue right?"
Frank ate a forkful before setting down the fork and plate.
"There were once a bunch of settlers and tribals up here in Wyoming. (Explains the wooden shacks we passed now.) Then someone had the bright idea of helping more of their kids survive."
"Why would they do that if they're so dangerous?"
"The eggs, raptor eggs usually don't all survive, those that do were the lucky ones. Arms dealers sell the young to the highest bidders. Raptors are vicious but can be tamed from birth if done right and used as living weapons, NCR polices them and makes sure no unauthorized folks get them."
Wendy looked at the window nervously.
"Our saving grace is its winter. It's too cold for most to leave their burrows so they hibernate, usually when the poachers go to find them. Most don't succeed."
"But they're are they so dangerous?"
"They're smart. Lead victims into ambushes. Their ears hear things better than ours. Even a low whisper can get you torn to shreds."
"What kind of ambushes?"
Frank chuckled as he took the pot off the stove and readied a new pot for coffee
"OK, try to imagine yourself as a person in power armor. You get your first look at this thing as you cross an abandoned street with say two other people. It looks like a small cat with wings and a bird face, feathers all up front then halfway looks like a small panther. It also moves like a cat, lightly moving back and forth its yellow soulless eyes on you. You stare at it, and it just stares right back as you level your weapon. And that's when the attack comes. Not from the front, but from the sides..."
Frank stirred the coffee powder into the water as he continued
"..from the other six you didn't even know were there. Because they're pack hunters. They use coordinated attack patterns and they are bloodthirsty. And they slash at you with this."
Frank drew his knife and spun it around
"...3 six-inch claws, like knives on each foot. They don't bother to slice your armor like other animals, they slash at you here, or here..."
Frank pointed to spots across his body with the knife, spots undefended by the armor, before continuing.
"They know exactly where to hit, they learned it. Then once you're immobilized they take their time. Peeling off the armor plating one piece at a time as you hear your friends blood gurgling screams. The point is, you are alive when they start to eat you. Nasty fuckers, always kill them on sight."
"Why are they only in Wyoming then?"
"They aren't, they're Colorado natives but they migrate, they prefer Idaho actually, and other mountain states. Last time I was through Albuquerque a whole flock tore the place up for a few days."
"Really? So that's why you asked me to be quieter near Saratoga?"
"Yep, another job for us rangers back west is pest control anything too big to deal with by locals is assigned to us. I killed 35 alone in California last year, they're just more aggressive the more east you go for some reason."
Wendy finished her food and then set the plate down, as she looked around her nervously
"Shouldn't we leave now instead of waiting then?"
"No, the big and dangerous are out at night. Those are the ones I've been looking out for."
"There's bigger?"
"Small ones are taken down easily. They vary between 2 feet tall and 6 feet tall. The rare ones are ten-foot beasts. We call them griffons. They're usually by the mountains or the ruins of big cities. They can't be bred or nurtured, we don't even know why they're huge. They usually hunt alone, use their strength to brute force any enemy they have, strong enough to take out super mutant behemoths if lucky."
"They swoop down from above claw their skull in half in one swoop then fly away, and return for the corpse later. Saw it myself in a place in Dakota. They're different everywhere. Some in the Dakota rule as kinda chieftains perched up on those mountains with faces. The ones in Missouri kill everything that moves, even each other."
"They're slow at least right?"
"If you ever run into one alone you're gone, only a slepnier at full sprint can outrun it. They can take on everything directly except a deathclaw. If we ever wipe out the scaly bastards they're the next apex predator."
"How many have you killed."
Frank held up a single finger as he turned the pot. Wendy stared at the window, she heard a faint whooshing sound.
"Like I said we're fine. I've cut through here several times. They tend to stick to the same areas. Now get some rest I'll take watch."
1 hour later
Frank turned the pot of brew around as he looked at the map. He probably shared a little too much with Wendy but she needed the truth, it was his fault after all. How did he go the wrong way without knowing? He shouldn't have gotten them to the remnants of Laramie, it was a clear-cut road to Den-
Frank's ears twitched as he looked up from the map he turned the stove off and covered the pot. Something was out there, he slowly approached the window with his helmet light off careful not to attract attention. A large silhouette stood bathed in the moonlight street investigating the hoove prints made by Unica.
Frank watched as the beast slowly followed the prints to the garage door. He grabbed Wendy's rifle and slowly cocked the bolt back as he gently lifted it to fire at the creature in front of him. The beast scratched its claw along the garage door leaving a sharp metal sound in the air.
Just as the rifle was set to fire into the creature's eye Frank heard something else, a small whine coming from the garage. Almost instantaneous the beast tore through the flimsy garage door and rushed the defenseless horse inside with a loud screech only capable of an apex predator.
Oh shit!
Frank held the rifle in his hand as he stared at the door to the garage. The blood-curdling scream of the horse went silent and all that remained was the ragged tearing of flesh and the snapping of bones. Frank kept his eye on the door as he slowly made his way up the staircase, he tried his best to stay quiet, taking a few steps every minute, and after 4 minutes he was finally at the top.
Frank held his hand out shushing the frightened girl. He moved over to the room she was in and slowly entered with her behind him as he closed the door.
Frank stopped in his tracks as the sounds of eating stopped. A low bird cry broke the silence and then tapping, it heard them and was now investigating further. Frank signaled Wendy to grab the revolver in her holster and ready it as the beast sniffed around. Frank pushed the door open slightly more and in seconds the beast tore through the wooden door that led to the garage.
Wendy let out a small gasp muffled by her hand as the beast paraded around the downstairs portion of the house. We dy mouthed towards Frank.
Is that a
He nodded
White feathers covered the head and half of the torso of the beast, think black fur covered the rest. A sharp yellow beak prodded at the pots and pans. The 6 claws of the front legs tapped away at the floor. Frank took a small step out of the room and readied the rifle. He aimed for the eye as the beast examined the stove. The griffon opened the small pot full of hot coffee brew and stuck its beak in, it pulled back rapidly knocking the tin over and letting out a scream of pain. Frank took a deep breath and squeezed the trigger, the bullet soared out of the barrel and hit the the neck.
The creature ran up the stairs towards the two as fast as possible. Frank cycled another round and fired it into the creature to little effect. Wendy and Frank fired again and again till it was right on him. He dodged to the left as it pounced towards him, its hind legs knocking him to the side and down the stairs as it turned to face Wendy.
Wendy screamed as the beast stood in front of her. She threw the now empty revolver and stuck her hand out as she fired a large burst of electricity at the beast who quickly ducked into a side room. The griffon then stuck its head back out as Wendy panted. She watched it slowly come out of the room and just stare at her almost frightened.
A bolt slammed into the wall as Frank extended his robotic arm toward the griffon. He fired another shot hitting the animal in the neck again, the griffon flew down the stairs and pinned Frank to the ground by the neck as it screeched into his face. Its talons digging in but merely holding him. It turned back around and screeched up towards Wendy who looked down at the creature.
The creature loosened its grip on Frank and screeched back up at her. As she made her way down the stairs. Rifle in hand.
"Let go of him!"
The creature stepped off of Frank who took a deep breath of air.
"Stay right there!"
The griffon sat on its hind legs as Wendy helped Frank up.
"Are you talking to that thing?!"
The griffon snarled as Frank stood up.
"She's still pissed at you."
"I can tell."
Frank massaged his neck as he looked at the beast.
"How are you doing that?"
"I don't know we just....understand."
"'re still full of surprises kid...Well, tell her to get lost..."
"I don't think she'd listen."
The griffon screeched at Frank, who in response took a step back.
"Well she can't stay here....and I don't want her to either, besides she killed Unica..."
"And you shot her like 8 times."
"Are you defending this thing?!"
"Look, I think if we help her out she'll help us out..."
"How do you suppose we help her out?!"
Wendy slung the rifle over her shoulder and slowly approached the creature.
"It's fine...I think the FEV is acting as a kinda bond thing...I think."
"That is the stupidest thing I've's going to kill you now back up now!"
Frank drew the revolver from his holster and aimed at the griffon, the beast stood and roared at him.
"I'm not letting this stupid thing be the death of get back next to me before this thing gets hungry again."
"Frank! Put the gun down!"
Wendy moved closer to the griffon that simply stared at her, she reached towards its neck and grabbed the bolt lodged in it.
"This will hurt...Frank stimpak..."
"Stimpak...toss me one."
"Do you trust me?"
Frank holstered the revolver and reached into his satchel and pulled out a stim throwing it to Wendy. Wendy caught it and then turned to the beast.
"This will only hurt just a little."
She yanked the bolt out and the griffon screeched into the air, Wendy quickly injected the stim before backing up. The griffon flapped its wings knocking Frank over. It rose a few feet in the air before slamming back down onto the ground. It turned to Wendy and bowed toward her.
"You're welcome..."
Frank stood back up. And turned to Wendy taking his helmet off.
"So what did that do... besides waste a stim."
"She trusts us...well me more than you.."
"And how does that help us?"
Wendy turned to Frank and then back to the winged beast.
"Oooh no, oooh no I'm not getting on that thing! Are you crazy?!"
"Frank this is a once-in-a-lifetime said it yourself Griffons usually attack anything well this one is helping us."
"Only help this one is doing is helping itself to a free lunch when it drops us from 100 feet up."
"She wouldn't do that...right girl."
Wendy stroked the griffon's feathers.
"Okay don't do that, that thing just killed Unica....and probably has kill a lot of other people."
"You said it yourself she's an apex predator she hunts...Unica was's faster than walking...and safer."
"You're a cold child and I'll take my chances on the ground."
"Oh come on."

"No, end of the story."

The next morning
"How the hell did you talk me into this."
Frank muttered as he climbed aboard the feathery giant as it knelt.
"Relax she can tell you're scared."
"Of course I'm scared, I've seen what these things can do."
"Ya hear that girl, big bad ranger is scared of you."
Wendy rubbed the beak of the griffon as she talked cutesy to it.
"Stop doing that?!"
"Frank if she was gonna eat us she had all night."
"I was up all night keeping watch. And she spilled my coffee."
"Relax already. Diana won't kill you, she trusts us, now grab the reigns and try and ride her steady."
Frank grumbled as he grab the reigns and tapped Diana with the heel of his shoe. Instantly the beast turned its head around and stared at Frank.
Frank turned to the young girl at his side.
"Wendy how the hell am I supposed to do this?!"
"If you can't do it how can I?"
Frank sighed as he gently took the reigns once more.
"How did you even get this on her?"
"She let me."
"Oh she let you....that is such crap."
He looked down at the bird and sighed as he shook the reigns gently and leaned down to the beast's cat-like eye.
"Alright....we probably got off on the wrong foot let's just call it even and..."
Frank tapped the griffon gently on the side and it began to walk forward, he pulled the reigns slightly right and it turned accordingly.
"Holy shit!"
Frank smiled brightly as he looked at his accomplishment. He was on a fucking griffon and it wasn't trying to kill him.
"I'm doing it!"
"You look like a kid learning how to ride a bike."
"Shut it. Do you even know how to ride a bike?"
"Yeah, Sarah taught me."
Frank looked down at the beast and chuckled.
"Alright let's see about going a bit faster."
He whipped the reign gently.
Diana threw Frank off and extended her wings as she took off into the air and then down into the tree line.
"What the hell did you do?!"
"I just whipped the reign gently."
Frank got up and wiped the dirt off his duster as shots rang out in the air.
More gunshots rang out from the tree lime, Frank drew his revolver and ran towards the trees followed by Wendy. The two ran through bushes as they came across a small clearing where Diana stood ripping apart a small squad of men, some already dead one man about to die as she flung him into the air. Frank watched as the griffon tore through the remainder of them with ease. The last person wore a suit of power armor and was now pinned to the ground as the beast squeezed
Diana looked up to where the shout came from and saw Wendy. Walking towards her Frank followed close behind.
"She heard them."
"Yeah, no shit, who are they though?"
Wendy looked down at the last person and looked into their visor.
"Hey who are you?"
The person's eyes were still focused on the griffon.
"Please just let's you, Dorkins is're perfect."
Wendy looked up at Frank who looked at the person through his visor.
"Wendy let me talk to her. Go...go loot the dead."
Wendy stood up and walked away as Frank and Diana remained. Frank knelt and tore the helmet off the frightened attacker with his metal arm. A woman with tribal-like markings on her face lay there still frightened.
"I take it you're a part of the Putrescent Mother thing.....why are you guys after her?"
"She's the one.....she's the perfect form....."
"She has granted you immunity to our charms...she has tamed this beast....she's perfect..."
"English please?"
"You're not protecting're holding her back...she's perfect...."
Frank stood up and turned to Diana.
"Drop her!"
Diana unfurled her wings and clenched the woman by her power armor tearing it apart and then taking off into the sky the cultist screaming as they ascended.
"What was that about?"
"She was....they were raiders. Followed us from Utah. They weren't expecting the ambush from-"
"-From her."
" what?"
"I sat we let her snack a bit, she earned it...and then we practice a bit more..."
"Sounds good."

2023.03.30 07:13 TaquitosLoquitos My friend's wife used to have sex with me and his entire friend group before meeting him. I'm embarrassed my friend married her & has kids

I love my friend Robert (fake name), but I'm absolutely embarrassed by him. In my eyes, he's a loser & an idiot for being with his wife. They're both 27 and have twin daughters that are 4 years old. He's happy! And that's great, but me & all his friend's had her first. Before meeting my friend Robert, his wife (we'll call her sally) was having sex with his entire friend group. It was me and 2 others guys that Robert knew. We all met her in college, she made college fun & took our virginities. Each of us had different classes with her, that's how me & Robert's other friends knew her. That's how they all had sex with her, because everyone had some sort of class with her during the day. Now obviously we didn't have sex with her at the same time, it was all separate occasions - but still, we all had our way with her.
Sally was just some blonde haired, blue eyed, freckled face chick with huge boobs we hanged out with because she was hot & hilarious. She was those chick's that wore denim, loved anime & came from a farmeranch family. She'll follow us around always, maybe she thought we were cool or something, so we got her involved in our friend group. She shared her hobbies, always got us invovled in her activities & was super fun to hang out with.
Sally was an awesome girl! So silly, hilarious, sweet & was the nicest person you can ever meet. She was an angel, so goofy & loved being adventurous. But unfortunately, I still just saw her as a chick I can have sex with.
Only reason we all know sally slept with the friend group, Is because me & Robert's other 2 friends brought it up. We realized the 3 of us were all at some point intimate with her, because we all had classes with her. We were all shocked, because we didn't know sally slept with the 3 of us. I thought I was the lucky one that only slept with her, but turns out Robert's other friend's were lucky too. We all lost our virginities to this girl, which was crazy. In our eyes, we thought she was easy & slutty so we wanted to continue seeing her.
Sally had a serious conversation with me & my 2 other friends when we introduced her to Robert. She fell in love with him, actually dated him in a serious way, didn't have sex with him quickly (which is funny) and the two of them became a couple. She was honest with him about her past with us, he didn't care & only cared about the future they'll have together. Sally asked that we respect her relationship with Robert and that everything we did together in college stay in the past. She said she's past all that stuff & wants something serious and special in her life: that being Robert. She wanted to move on with Robert, have a family with him and get married. She was insanely in love with him. She wanted something "real" and I guess Robert gave that to her.
That's exactly what they are now, they're married and still crazy for each other. She's a teacher, he own a restaurant & they have twin daughters. I don't care if I sound bad, but I'm embarrassed for Robert. His wife used to be a slut, now she's acting like nothing happened. We all did things with her, it's annoying she's acting like we didn't. She has that "I'm a wife & mother now" type of attitude, she's supposedly "matured". They're always going on vacations/traveling with their kids and I just cringe at the photos.
So yes, I'm embarrassed for Robert. There's definitely people out there that are also embarrassed for him, because they know how slutty sally was. But whatever, if he's happy & she's happy, then I guess that's fine. He's enjoying sloppy seconds & a girl that's used up completely.
I already know there's gonna be comments saying, "but women can enjoy sex too!" And "it's none of your business who she has sex with". That's true, but you're all hilarious for wanting to say that. It's just reddit defending women like always.
I don't care if she's a mom now, she's a slut in my eyes.

2023.03.30 07:12 KinkyGrandpaEnergy 37 [M4F] #Minnesota Experienced pervy Daddy seeking curious younger sluts for kinky chat.

Daddy is horny as usual and hoping to find some kinky company. I've been here off and on for years and I always keep coming back. I just love hearing from all of the perverts and the pillow humpers that hang out here and I'm always looking for wild new friends and pocket sluts!!
I have a lot of kinks. Some more tame than others. I started looking at porn on magazines. When I lived with my parent's I would hide them in the woods. Hearing from you warped younger gooner sluts is SUCH a turn on. I can't imagine having highspeed internet porn at that age. I love hearing about how girls learned to masturbate and their introductions to porn. I also really love anal, watersports, free use, gang bangs, and DDLG. The list goes on and on. What are you in to??
Physically I'm brawny and bearded. I stay plenty active so I'm in good shape, but I also love pizza so I have a Dad bod. If we hit it off I'm opened to sending pics and if you're a really good girl you might even get a tribute. Please include your age and the color panties you're wearing with your first post. No minors or animals.

2023.03.30 07:11 tearatodd How do I find a good home for older dog

Hi everyone, i’ve had my dog for many years. He’s almost 11 years old and i’ve had him since I was 10. Pretty much the whole time i’ve had him my family has always made it clear that he was my responsibility and don’t really put effort into his care collectively. Obviously this has caused a lot of tension over the years, me being a child needing help since having a dog is a big responsibility. Now that i’m older, i’m much more capable to care for him but life has gotten in the way going to college, volunteering, having a job and trying to maintain a social life. I do the best that I can every day but i’m not home a lot. I feel very guilty since my family has always instilled in me that they don’t care about him and because I wanted a dog I shouldn’t ask for help. And so when they have to care for him out of pure obligation since I’m not there they get very emotionally abusive towards me. I’m moving out during the summer for a job that’s about an hour away from my family home and I will come back on weekends to visit my family and care for my dog but I can’t help but feel that this will cause lots of tension. I will most likely be getting threatening messages and calls about putting my dog out on the street. I would take him with me but the room I am renting doesn’t allow animals. I love my dog and it makes me really sad to think that in his last years I give him up to strangers. I feel shelters are out of the question as to me it would be cruel and they would likely euthanize him for his age and health issues. Is there a better solution?

Hello all! It's been quite a week for me. I learned tonight that a friend I've played games with for years had passed away in a motorcycle accident. I'm always starting a new job next week, and I'm super stressed about that. That's enough of my sob story, though!
I'd love to hear about your hobbies, pets, interests, or just exchange memes and have a laugh.
I love movies, anime, playing guitar, building Lego, and metal music.

2023.03.30 07:03 Error-Code447 I struggle in lgbtq spaces

I’m 16 and I’ve been really active in online communities since I was very young, back then it was more about geeking out over anime and games growing up. I’ve always known I was trans and I always presented myself as male online. As I got older around 14 I joined discord and found lgbtq communities, which I joined, in a lot of the communities people came to know me and it was nice to make friends but seeing everyone with a very big wide range of pronouns (neos and xenos) and a lot of people being very fluid I felt extremely out of place as a person who strictly just wanted to be a dude and didn’t consider being transgender as their identity . Soon after someone told me I didn’t deserve to speak on lgbtq problems as a cis person since they assumed I was cis and I didn’t mention I was trans and I was just gay. I started feeling uncomfortable being in communities, especially with younger people as people kept telling me off for not identifying as transgender. Maybe it’s just I found wrong communities. Even in school I tend to avoid other people who are lgbtq in fear of them going off on me for not being more like them. I often feel alone and want to have a community but I’m also scared of getting into one and actually being apart of the community. What can I do to become more comfortable in a community?

2023.03.30 07:02 Kmossxx KOEI should rework titan shifting for their next aot

Gameplay —————————————————————— *I feel like sprinting should’ve been a thing for the titans obviously some faster than others we mostly use em just for the gimmick their not really as useful as we would hope
*being able to lock onto titans because of how often you miss trying to attack, especially throwing rocks as zeke
*of course fixing those bugs that launches you into the air from moving uphill
Online —————————————————————— *and maybe koei could actually implement a working campaign co op- Can you imagine a raid on Libierio where the host is Eren fighting the Warhammer Meanwhile your friend is Armin trying to swim into the middle of the fleet before unleashing his colossal and actually walking around. Of course this would be very demanding but with new Gen consoles we can hope
realism feedback ————————————————————- *if your at very low health you shouldn’t be able to activate the titan ability
*some should only be able to use the ability a certain number of times Like the colossal just once but the attack titan 3 times
*using the titan power will slightly lower your max health for some time
*why doesn’t Annie use her ring to activate her power like the anime

2023.03.30 07:01 Terrible_Yam_3930 My parents and I might be homeless in 5 days and I've never been more afraid in my life

All of this is true - it sounds completely made up, but no, its true and I can prove it.
I'm 36 and moved in with my parents 3 years ago when their health started failing. I wanted to help out financially and just by being there.
My mom is having a major surgery on Monday.
I found out after I moved in that their home of 40 years went into foreclosure after my dad couldn't work. We have a lawyer who's been helping us try to negotiate with the lender to keep the house.
Today the sheriff placed an eviction notice on our door - we have to be out by Tuesday. Apparently the bank sold the home and we weren't notified of the sale. (I'm abbreviating here)
Our lawyer is going to court tomorrow to do what he can, but I'm so so scared. So are my parents and my heart bleeds seeing them like this. They have nothing to show for a life spent working. They're each 1st gen Americans, and badly mismanaged their finances when I was growing up. I hate this.
I have a good job, but my credit score is 30 points lower than it needs to be for me to be able to qualify for a loan to buy the house and thus save it. I have no real savings, they have no real savings.
We have....nothing. Theres no safety net. Theres no family or friends coming to help. All I have is a house filled with 40 years of my parents lives (and 3 cats) to somehow move in 5 days. How? To where? I have no idea.
And I've faced a full frontal reckoning with my privilege. Housing was something I took for granted. Never again.
I'm too scared and too ashamed to tell any of my friends - bc what can they do? Its humiliating. I have to pretend to be ok at work while this is happening. Wondering where I'm going to be sleeping in 5 days. Will we have to abandon our cats. How can we go to a shelter if my mom is recovering from surgery? I cry a lot but I don't want them to see - I want to be strong for them.
Please pray for us because I've never been this afraid.

I'm an awkward person irl. So I found a solace in discord, interacting with different people online in 2018. I got to meet new friends all over the world. Some I even met irl, those who are near my area. Slowly, they built my confidence and how I interact with people.
This story goes way back in 2019. I was playing with a newly-created bot, together with some of my friends in discord. And so, joining the official server of the bot, I've met more friends online.
There's this guy, pissing me off with his antics. So whenever I get pings from him, I just ignored it. Even when I'm chatting with the others in the general chat channel, i just blatantly ignore his public messages specially when his referring to me.
Suddenly, I got a DM from him saying sorry. I ignored it. Then he sent another message saying sorry again and telling me likes me lol. He liked how my voice sounds in voice chat. (A lot of us in the discord server hang out in the voice channel and listen to songs and play random games like uno, truth or dare, etc)
That got me to reply to him, I said lol. And so fast forward, I got a constant person whom I can talk to with for hrs. He kinda "courted" me online. I don't know what counts as courting online but I appreciate his messages checking on me, listening to music together, talking on phone for hrs. So when he asked me if he can be my bf. I said yes after 5 months since he said he liked me.
For context, this is my first relationship. I never had a bf before even irl. We were talking about meeting each other at the end of 2019 but pandemic happened. Our first 2 years together was happy. Even tho we haven't seen each other irl yet. We talk about our plans, goals, in life. We trust each other enough to share our PayPal together. I know and I felt his love for me. So even if some are skeptical on our setup, I just shrugged it off.
Come our 3rd yr, I kept asking him when he's gonna visit me. (Btw, I also tried going to his country but this was in March 2020. I applied for visa and all but the ff week after my application, their country closed its borders to foreigners bcoz of the pandemic). He keeps saying he's still occupied with work as he built a small company. He hired workers. For context, he's a construction worker.
So I said, once everything has been settled and he has adjusted, I hope he can find time to book a flight. My patience has nearing it's end tbh as keeps saying he's busy. Some of you may think he's prolly cheating, but I know he's not. He hates it since he's biological father left his him and his mum when he was a baby. He said he'll never be like his father.
So yeah, after 3yrs and half, I just woke up, realizing that I'm not one of his priorities anymore. So I let him go. My friends sympathize with me. Saying I should try dating others, use dating app or whatever (I've never used a dating app before). My purpose to date is to marry. I don't wanna date just for fun. so for now, I'll study for Master's degree.
Tho, I'll admit it na sometimes it's lonely to go out alone. While I have less than 10 friends whom I can invite, they are not always available. So most of the times, I do watch movies and go on trips alone or just stay in the condo and ready books, watch animes. Nasanay na kasi ako mag-isa. Legit strong and independent lol.
It's a long post. Thanks for reading doe

2023.03.30 06:59 Madmaxohio75 Nothing can touch me

It has been months... I never pretended it would get better, but I never knew it could get this much worse. Going through a dissolution (divorce, separation, etc ) is hard enough. Everything exists on a spectrum, and I guess that's why we are all here. Together. I could write an entire book about all the simultaneous fucked up things that are currently engulfing my life... But I won't. I feel like I need to vent. I feel like I need to reach out. To someone. To anyone. I feel like my substance abuse isn't helping me either. When you are drowning in sorrow and trauma, why not drown it in something else? I know it's not the right thing to do, but the hurt of everything only goes away if I numb it. Should I try to jump out of the ground floor window of the bedroom I'm in, and plummet 28 inches to my certain death? Should I take a vow of celibacy and silence and move to Tibet? Should I just start writing county songs? I'm just lost and hurt, lonely and wanted to say something. It's all stupid words just to purge my non-stop brain. This was worthless and I'm sorry for anyone who wasted their time. Most times, this is my only outlet, my only friend. I don't mean to abuse it, but I'm not sure what could even touch me anymore.
