2023.05.28 08:25 snap-crackle-explode Advice on playing a homebrew mechanic
My DM made a specific attack mechanic for my character, and I want to make sure I use it well (without metagaming). My character is a tabaxi rogue (currently lvl 3), based on a leopard. We talked about the fact that leopards kill by suffocating their prey. They'll bite deep into the throat or around the mouth of the animal they want to bring down to keep them from breathing. Our DM had already given my character coup de grace (below), and I suggested flavouring it with that suffocating bite. He then took that and created a specific mechanic especially for it (Phil if you're reading this you're a star):
Suffocating Bite "Tabaxi can use their powerful bite to subdue and suffocate vulnerable prey Bite - 1 Action - deals 1d6 + STR modifier, non magical piercing damage NB: does not benefit from sneak attack. Not considered a finesse or ranged weapon but an extension of your unarmed strike Suffocation If your bite is successful and any of the following conditions apply, your target will begin to suffocate. Their air lasting 1+CON modifier rounds - creature is grappled by you or an ally - creature is paralysed, incapacitated, or unconscious - Coup de Grace mechanic applies"
I'm wondering specifically when to use it. Most enemies will likely have decent CON and so the suffocation rules would mean my character being occupied and basically out of action for the remainder of combat, leaving the rest of the party to deal with any other foes that are still active. I don't want the bite to be underwhelming to play, or be a hindrance to the party overall. Maybe it's best applied when the character is alone / facing a single enemy. Or it's something the character might attempt, and have to abandon if the battle requires (but then it feels like I'm not using the special thing that was made for them!). It might be that in the end the time to use it will be determined by RP not strategy - I like the idea that it's an action of last resort because it fits with the character's psychology.
Any thoughts and advice on play greatly appreciated!
*For info, Coup de grace rules we're using: "Your training includes how to kill. Spending an attack action, melee or ranged, against an incapacitated, unconscious or paralysed target on your turn has a chance to automatically kill the target if they fail a constitution saving throw. Melee attacks within 5ft automatically have advantage. Ranged has disadvantage as normal while they are prone. Hits are automatic criticals (unless they are immune to crits) meaning even if they save on constitution, unconscious creatures will take 2 death saves"

2023.05.28 08:25 kavulasthugan Daddy's GF (UPDATE)
Hey guys, just an update on the situation.
Dad has never met the girl in real life. He's never video chatted with her or had a phone call with her. The only person he talks to and the person he GCashes the money to is a guy named Jeffrey. Jeffrey owns the sari-sari store where the girl Jingjing cashes in and out.
My scam senses are tingling guys. I think he's talking to a catfish. He is the only person insisting that that girl is moving in with him.
I'm going to look for a psychologist for seniors because I have no idea how to pull him out of this.

2023.05.28 08:24 SS_Ness Sequences wont play all the way through
Been learning a lot of cool stuff with SFM, but I've found trouble when importing sequences. Currently I'm working a L4D animation where the witch is running at the camera, but for whatever reason, upon importing the sequence on the model, it will only play the sequence for like a second, and will just stop the model completely, then loop. I have set the parameters for the x and y as well as root animations, but I have found no success.
It's been frustrating, and I've resorted to just trying to finish the animation myself and make it look choppy and goofy, but i seriously dont know what to do.

2023.05.28 08:24 Resident_Setting3884 I asked an AI about my terrible situation
AI Hi! How can I help you?
You im a 42 year old man who has never even been on a date with a girl or even held a girls hand or kissed a girl, im a loser right?
No, not at all! Everyone has their own timeline and pace in life. It's never too late to start dating, and the right person will come along when the time is right. It's important to focus on building your confidence and self-esteem, and to put yourself out there and meet new people. There are many resources and support available to help you feel more comfortable and confident in the dating world. Would you like me to suggest some resources that may be helpful to you?
You there is no point, woman have never been attracted me me, ever
I understand that it can be frustrating and disheartening when you feel like you're not attracting the kind of attention you want from women. However, it's important to remember that attraction is subjective and different people are attracted to different things. You are a unique individual with your own strengths and qualities, and there is someone out there who will appreciate and be attracted to those qualities. It's important to focus on building your confidence, being your authentic self, and putting yourself out there in different social situations. Also, consider seeking the help of a therapist or dating coach who can provide professional guidance and support to help you navigate the dating world.

2023.05.28 08:23 Coolname294 Corpse husbands face reveal proves everyone’s hypocrisy
Yes, I know this news is a year old now but I’m just hearing of it right now. For anyone who dosent know Corpse Husband is a generic YouTuber who blew up because he had a super deep voice and basically every girl on the planet was simping for him. Now up until a year ago he had never shown his face but someone had leaked his real face and the internet exploded. All the girls who worshiped this guy, all the girls who simped so hard as to go and get a tatto of the sound waves of his fucking voice started tweeting or making tik toks or whatever about how much they regretted simping for him because he turned out to be “ugly”. But when this happened all of the big YouTubers and streamers banded together and defended Corpse and their comments were filled with things like “He’s not even that bad looking” or “he has a heart of gold and I still love him” or “we really shouldn’t judge people on their appearance so much” (these were all real comments I’ve seen btw). So this whole situation basically proves everyone’s hypocrisy, if anyone else was being bullied like Corpse was, if people like us were being bullied like he was they would just join in on the bullying. Oh but since it’s “perfect daddy Corpse oh no he’s so kind why u bully” everyone jumps to his defense. Twitch Thot valkerae even almost cried on stream because people were dunking on Corpse so hard, like bro. Learning about this situation had made me so fucking depressed man.

2023.05.28 08:23 cheeseattractedwoman Serious question, are mixed race women, especially those raised by their non-black side, black by your standards? TW: Racism
Obviously the black community is not a monolith. My mom is white and American, my dad is black and not American. I’ll add he’s the only person in his family that calls themselves black, the others don’t see themselves as black despite being darker than many black Americans.
I was raised by my mom. From a young age, I was taught to identify as white by my mom and grandmother, my grandmother was particularly insistent I looked white and that my hair was like an Italian person’s (it’s 3C). I was white on any form they filled. My missing person’s report from when I was a teenager? I was apparently white on there too.
I grew up in a very white and Asian beach town town, not to overly trauma dump but it wasn’t always great being the only kid that was mixed with black in the entire school. There were plenty of mixed kids. They were pretty much all wasians.
Warning: skip this part of you don’t want to hear me whine. Resumption is written when this part is done:
A one of my teachers (who was from japan) called my hair a rats nest), I was called a slave fairly often, compared to the American girl doll Addy (nothing wrong with her at all, but I look nothing like her. I’ll add that she was supposed to be a literal slave) and I was unanimously considered to be the ugliest girl in the class despite looking average.
As I grew older, my mom became straight up abusive in ways that don’t relate to the post. She would also, call me the n word when she was mad at me:
She forced me to straighten my hair, compared it to brillo. She was always super rough with it growing up and would say it was nappy/coarse/etc. She hated the gap in my teeth and forced me to get braces, tried to lighten my skin multiple times with lemons and chemical peels, and would comment and insult my body shape endlessly. She constantly would compare me to these blonde girls and tried to dye my hair blonde to match. She also was a trump supporter.
So, I’m 22 now. I’m no contact with my parents. My father is another can of worms, I don’t wish to explain further. I don’t know any black people. I’m not even sure if it would be appropriate to call myself Black at this point, I’ve seen conflicting opinions about it.
Resumption for those who didn’t want to read about my issues.
So, are mixed people black? Especially those raised in places with a population of less than 2% black people and are as removed from that side of my family as I am? I’m honestly confused at this point. I lurk this subreddit and I see conflicting things about it and am curious. Is it even appropriate to call myself black?
I hope I’m not intruding on this space.
Thank you :)

2023.05.28 08:23 AnarchyLaBlanc Learning to act like fire as a magic system.
The Great Flame is an extraplanar entity that exists on the other side of reality. It is also the origin from which all life stems.
Spirits are pieces of the great flame, meaning when someone dies, they return to the fire to be purified, their memories and mortal burdens burned away as fuel for the Great Flame. Then they will break off once again to be born anew.
In this world, magic stems from the fire, the reflection of the Great Flame's light. Specifically what different cultures learned from it. Some learned to replicate the way fire moves with their own bodies, some have learned to replicate how it sounds with their voices, and still others have learned to replicate its adaptability with their bodies.
People powered these abilities with special breathing techniques that tempered their inner fire. The less air they took in the less powerful the ability, but the more controlled it was. However, they ran the risk of "snuffing" where their spirit would extinguish. The inverse was in taking lots of air to burn their inner fire hotter leading to more power, but less control. This in addition to "burn out" where they turn into scourges.
Over hundreds, maybe thousands, of generations, these individual cultures evolved bodies more capable of nurturing these abilities. Becoming more potent.
Dance like fire
The dance school is about moving like fire. The wildfire sub-school allows one to "spread" like wildfire, striking multiple targets and turning precise strikes into wide slashes. The flicker sub-school allows one to move with speed and agility. The combustion sub-school allows one to use powerful blows that can split rock. The rise sub-school allows one to climb impossible obstacles.
Purify like fire
The purity school is about purifying and renewing like fire. The cauterize sub-school allows one to mend wounds and regrow flesh. The renewal school allows one to heal dead or dying flesh or organs. The purge sub-school purifies the body of diseases or poisons.
Daze like fire
The daze school is about stunning the mind and hypnotizing the target. The stun sub-school allows one to startle the mind to keep it from reacting. The dazzle sub-school allows one to confuse the mind so it struggles to recognize stimuli.
How I want to use this
I want this magic to start mysterious and dangerous. Some ten thousand years ago it was first discovered by humanity. People began to examine their campfires and notice the patterns within. Then began to imitate these patterns for daily life. Moving like fire gave them the speed to outpace their prey during the hunt, speaking like fire allowed them to be more agreeable and work together, purifying like fire allowed them to heal and survive fatal diseases. All these things moved humanity forward. Ten thousand years of using this magic, people started to evolve bodies capable of better using specific types of fire magic.
In a more present-day setting, humanity is using magic more effectively though they are still divided into clans by their power. At this point, through education, people have begun to use this magic more efficiently and without as many downsides. They started domesticating animals to use this magic and use them as luxuries. Examples being a sort of doglike being that can warm like fire and help people survive the cold nights in the desert. Or beetles that glow like fire that they keep in special jars like lanterns.
However, they still use this magic themselves. improving themselves in these magics and using them in more modern ways like agriculture, medicine, construction, and eventually technology using a tool called the wildfire engine to create energy for electronics. Basically, people sit around an engine and meditate creating energy for society. People can even learn this skill for the sake of charging their own devices. These technologies are biological in nature or biomechanical. As in they grow certain components and craft others.
Where I need help
I have very few abilities and nine clans that need to each have an interesting power. I have been racking my brain, but I've only come up with the three abilities I listed above. If anyone has any ideas based on the system I presented, please let me know.

2023.05.28 08:22 bbnt93 Help with friends…
Okay so I am really struggling with how people perceive me. BPD was mentioned whilst I was under psych care but never formally diagnosed and I’m now waiting for EMDR for CPTSD.
I try hard to be a pretty good person, I’m friendly and charismatic so I can make pals very easily. I just really struggle with the maintenance needed to keep friends.
I like to spend all of my time with my FP (partner) and don’t feel motivated to do anything else or talk to anyone else. I just feel drained when I have to do anything with or for anyone else and it all seems boring…
On top of this my partner has a big group of friends and I can tell they don’t like me. I try really hard but they’re a cliquey group of girls and I just can’t win. His guy friends are easy to get on with but the girls are all friends with his ex (it all tends to get to dramatics when said ex is there as with both have bpd/other mental health issues.)
They all seem to not want me in the circle which is hurtful and I get worried thinking everyone is teaming up against me and some kind of conspiracy is going on behind my back. I’ve recently fallen out with all of them and it ended super dramatically.
I also worry that people can see that I have not many close friends and maybe I’m the problem?
I don’t know what to do or how to be a better person and have my own friends so I stop hyperfixating on this.

2023.05.28 08:22 Royal_Nerve_595 PLEASE comment to help me understand wtf is happening here
Hey guys. I'm new to Reddit and it shows. I clearly have no idea what all of you know very well already about Reddit altogether, much less this particular sub.
I'm here for support purposes. I assumed like an idiot, that we all were. I've been through it, I'm a MOTHER, with children of different ages that have been through it. I see people post with similar life experiences asking for advice, and I offer mine. I've offered for seemingly suffering people looking for a listening ear and support to message me. Tonight I get this girl who claims to be abused and then sends me naked photos of her. SHE'S UNDER AGE. I flipped out on her and blocked the acct. Is this the norm here? Are the majority of these posts just total bullsh*t clickbait that prey on the emotions of ACTUAL trauma victims? Is this a constant thing? Am I wasting my time here? I need comments. I'll get rid of Reddit as quick as I found it if it's some kind of trolling, spamming, traumatizing database of drama. I assumed it was helpful to others. Supportive. I'm so confused. Comment please.

2023.05.28 08:20 nutellablanket Girlfriend (27f) got upset after I (29m) met one of her friends (27f) for the first time
To start off, I'm on the autism spectrum, so a lot of social norms are kind of "over my head", and in social situations, I typically just default to asking people questions - I genuinely like to get to know people, and this is the best way I know how. I'm hoping you all can help me figure out what I'm missing and how I can make future friend meetings go better.
My (29m) girlfriend (27f) and I have been dating for roughly 18 months now. Yesterday, I met one of her (female) friends for the first time at my partner's place, where we all sat around and just talked.
I asked them both what they both had been up to, if my girlfriend got anything fun at the vintage shop, how they liked their lunch outing, etc.I then asked the friend different questions - how her life in LA was and if it was nice to get a break from things there, how acting and her stand-up acts were going ("Because my gf tells me it's going well!"), and other random things... stuff I thought was just genuinely getting to know this person my girlfriend has known and loved for nearly two decades. This friend -- given the kind of career paths she's pursuing in acting and stand-up -- also liked to talk a lot and tell stories, so I just kind of listened and gave little comments.
Her friend asked me questions back like how I'm enjoying law school, what I'm doing on my summer break, if I have tattoos, etc. All random stuff I thought was someone... getting to know me?After a few hours of hanging out, the friend suggested we all watch a movie we talked about, to which my girlfriend said, "Yeah, but girls only," in a joking manner, but even I got the memo.
Anyways, later that night my girlfriend texted and was upset about the whole hangout - she said I:
- completely ignored hedidn't include or talk directly to her at all
- I thought I did with the above plus responding to some of the friend's stories, comments, or questions by tying things back to my girlfriend and things she told me or that we did together
- was mean by poking fun at her
- we were all making little jokes about one another's eating habits at one point, but I thought this was all in good fun
- was just trying to win over her friend
- I wasn't - I was just trying to converse with someone my girlfriend insisted I meet. I also have not had any sort of attraction to this friend or the others...
- Maybe it was because I laughed at the friend's stories and jokes? Which should be understandable because she's an up-and-coming comedian and was genuinely funny, right?
- made her feel like she could just be anyone
- this stems from me asking other people about themselves; my girlfriend said it just looks like how I was with her on our first date and asking her all of these "get to know you" questions. The point being: if I'm able to so easily converse and ask meaningful questions with anyone, how special is our relationship?
- Note that this has only been problematic with my gf's female friends - it's likely a combination of her guy friends being less chatty in general, and maybe she doesn't hear me asking the same questions to her guy friends?I did, in fact, get similar talks like this from my girlfriend the two other times I met her close (female) friends.
I don't know if there's something I've been missing in all of these interactions, or how to be less inquisitive?I also don't know exactly what to be asking my partner in these situations - I have no problem tying her into the conversations or referring to things my girlfriend has told me (or that we've done together), but I don't know what to ask my girlfriend in these situations to include her or what to even talk to her about that would be new ... we already see each other every day and talk/text a lot, so there's not much to be filled in on.
I want to be more inclusive, but I don't know how to go about that right now - the only thing that comes to mind is not asking much or responding in-depth when I meet these new people? But then I feel like I'm shutting down a part of myself and not being genuinely me. TL;DR:
Each time I've met one of my girlfriend's friends (F) for the first time, she gets upset with me after for how it went / how she felt like she was treated or ignored even though I thought the times were good, inclusive, and we all had fun.

2023.05.28 08:19 peachy_exe how does one know?
im not sure where to post or what to say without sounding like im having an identity crisis.
for the longest time, ive considered myself to be straight. i dated and only slept with men, cis-men i suppose to be specific (is that okay/important?) and it was a running joke in my old friend group that i was the “token straight friend” as all my friends identified as queer. my old coworkers joked that i was a “fruit fly”. i just went along with it because i never had experiences with women and since my old friends were so insistent i couldn’t be attracted to women, i never bothered addressing it. i stayed as the “token straight friend” and took their jokes about me being straight, supported their coming out stories, one of them began performing in drag and i supported them as much as i could. i rallied next to them at protests and made more conscious decisions to shop from businesses owned/operated by the LGBTQ2IA+ community.
one year, i really wanted to go with them to pride, i had never been to pride in a bigger city and they were so excited to go (i had recently moved to a smaller, more conservative town and had not been able to fully hang out with my old friends for quite some time) and i was excited to be able to see my friends and be able to hang out with them and celebrate them they way they wanted to during pride month. but a week before they told me that i wasnt able to go, and said there wasnt enough room in the car going down (this was found out to be a lie) and that pride was THEIR thing, for them as queer people to be themselves and not for straight people to invade.
i didn’t want to overstep; i know only a fraction of struggles the LGBTQ2IA+ community has faced over the decades, and i didnt want to cause a fight or any tension. so i said okay and stay at home and just liked their instagram pics and complimented their pride outfits in the group chat. ngl my heart hurt back then but i figured i didnt really have a reason to be upset because it ultimately wasnt about me.
but ive always had this feeling. i dont know how to explain it, maybe im just weird or a creep but ive always found myself interested in women’s bodies, and their curves. i feel like i would always stare a little bit longer than probably appropriate, i was always interested in porn that focused more on the woman’s experience. i hope this isnt cheesy or cringey, but there was that tingle when i thought about girls or women that looked really pretty to me, or that i thought had a really nice body. i just brushed it off as me wanting to support other women and if they felt confident, it must have been rubbing off on me. sometimes i’d see a really hot girl and wonder what she was like in bed, what would turn her on, or if she would turn me on.
lately more and more ive found that i’ve daydreamed about being intimate with women, or at the very least feeling like id be more open. i wont lie and say i havent been consuming more spicy content that only starred women, or focused only on the woman. ive found myself feeling the same sort of turned on feeling thinking about a woman that i would get when i would think about my boyfriend or be intimate with him. i love my boyfriend dearly, i have no intention on leaving him, or exploring these feelings without addressing everything i feel and ensuring theres consent from him (if it ever comes to it). i still feel a strong attraction to men, it just feels like over the past year and a half, ive felt a similar attraction to women.
im wasnt sure if it was a product of my environment, the whole “you live in england long enough you start to get a british accent” kind of deal. since so many of my old friends were queer, and some of my current friends are queer, i just kinda figured i thought i was because i was always hanging out with them. but i havent spoken to my old friend group in 3 years, and only talking off and on to one of them every few months or so. and when i sat down and started reflecting and addressing these feelings, i realized i had them since before i knew my old friends.
the last thing i want to do is come across as that straight girl who thinks shes bi to be part of the crowd, i feel like i probably overcompensate to really avoid coming across that way. i know bi erasure is a very real thing so thats why i tell myself if i feel like this may be a possibility, i should address is and allow myself to accept whatever i feel. but i also know that i have come from a privileged environment, and never had to go through the coming out struggles like so many have. i have been trying to discuss this with my therapist but we only just began exploring this a few sessions ago.
am i just delusional? i dont mean to trauma dump or come across as patronizing but im not sure how to address these sort of feelings. i know that if these are genuine and i am truly attracted to women as well as men, my boyfriend and friends would be supportive and accepting. i know my family would be as well and that nothing would change these.

2023.05.28 08:19 Lunalovegoodgirl Food Depression
I’m not sure what I’m looking for by posting this maybe advice or maybe just feeling less crazy. I’m an 18 year old girl and I’ve had celiac since I was 12. Since my diagnosis my numbers in my blood have been perfect, and I have had bo problems until this January, my numbers were up (not to the extent they were before I was diagnosed but still alerting) this brought me into a stress spiral, after looking at all the food in my house and finding no gluten ingredients(including oats) my dr recommended not eating out. Since then I’ve only eaten out on occasion when I have been on vacation, and with those restaurants claimed to be celiac safe. Since my numbers have gone up I only feel anxiety when I think about food. I no longer have any enjoyment when it comes to food, I’ve struggled with food anxiety before, but I’ve never felt this bad about it. I feel like I’m missing out and just do not want to eat. I have lost weight and I try to eat 3 meals a day but sometimes it just feels to difficult to manage. I get my numbers tested again soon and I am so terrified, I feel like I’m not going to ever be able to live a normal life. I know this is a common feeling for a lot of people when they first get diagnosed but it feels the harder now then ever. I know everyone has different celiac symptoms, with mine I’m out of school for 2 weeks bc I am so fatigued and have extreme muscle pain that makes it hard for me to walk and after that a couple of months of extreme brain fog. To some celiac patients I feel that eating gluten isn’t a big deal, some people I know my age will cheat sometimes and eat gluten but there is no way I could ever do that and it makes me feel like I’m being over dramatic. I feel alone. I just want to enjoy food again.

2023.05.28 08:19 PinkJellyGirly The man that followed me home twice got what he deserved
So this happened back in 2020, during the summer. I was 18 at that time, working a summer job at a local beach bar. I had just gotten my driver's licence and my first car. That day I was working the night shift, I got to work at 6pm and got off around 2am. For reference, I live in a suburb that has a max of 10000 permanent residents. There are more people during the summer, as many people rent vacation properties because the beach is literally 5-10 minutes away on foot.
I got off work and on the drive back home, I felt kind of nauseous (I had eaten a chicken sandwich at work, maybe the chicken had gone bad), so I thought a soda would make me feel better. In my country, we have these small 'shops' (you can find them in every corner). It's more like a kiosk where you can buy refreshments, chips, ice cream etc. So because my city is a small suburb, there is only one of these kiosks that is oppen 24/7. I drive there and park my car directly in front of the kiosk with my hazard lights on, as I was only parking there for just one minute.
As I exit my car, I notice that right across the street there is a man sitting on the hood of his car, looking right at me. As soon as I saw the way he was looking at me, I knew he was looking for pray. He was around 45-47yrs old, short and chubby, with a bald spot on the top of his head. I ignore him, I grab a soda from the kiosk's fridge, I pay and I get back in my car. The moment he saw that I was heading back to my car, he got in the driver's seat in a rush and drove off. I knew something was fishy so I didn't take my eyes off that car. He thought he was being all smart and shit, because he drove a few meters ahead and he parked his car on the side of the road, in a spot that you wouldn't be able to see him unless you had witnessed him park, and he turned off his lights and engine.
I start my car and drive past him, acting as if I hadn't seen him. Just then, he starts up the car and follows me. He wasn't riding on my bumper, thinking that I wouldn't suspect anything if he kept a safe distance. Just because I was sure he was following me, I had already made a plan. I call 911 (not the number we use in my country, I live in Europe) and I tell the operator that I think a guy is following me and I need them on the line as I am about to make a few turns to confirm that he is following me. So I choose to go around the block, and get back to the same point, as that would mean that he was for sure following me, I mean why would someone go around the block just to get to the same spot they were before, if they know where they are going they wouldn't need to do that.
So as you can imagine, he turned every single time I turned and we now both are right where he started following me. That's when I look at my rearview mirron and spell the licence plate to the 911 operator. She wasn't even saying anything, so I tell her: '' Please stay on the line just in case anything happens, I'm gonna lead him right to the police station ''. The police station was straight ahead from where we were, so I shift gears and drive faster. He does too. The police station is not visible if you're driving and looking straight, you would have to turn your head to the left in order to spot it. So I slam the brakes right outside the police station, and I pull to the side. He pulls up from the left, his car is now right next to mine, I roll down my window and he rolls the window on the passenger's side. Before he was able to say anything, I point with my finger and I show him the police station. He turns his head and he sees it. There was a cop guarding the outside door. I tell him: 'See where I brought you? You wanna follow me you pervert, let's go to the cops right now.' I hadn't even finished my sentence and the guy sped off so fast he didn't even roll up his window.
I hang up the phone to the police and I watch his car turn left and dissapear. I stay there for a few minutes, just to make sure he's gone gone, and I drive to my house, which is also straight ahead, just two streets above the police station. I get in my house, but I first check my surroundings, because I was paranoid, thinking he was hiding in a bush or smth. I wake my mom up and tell her all about it. She asked me for the number of his licence plate was but I had already forgotten it.
A month goes by, and I was again coming back home from the night shift. This time I hadn't eaten anything at work and I was very hungry, so I stop at that kiosk again to buy some chips. FYI, there isn't any other place to buy food at that time, no restaurant in my city is open 24/7. I look around and check if the man was there, since I suffered from ptsd because of my last experience in this kiosk. I buy the chips and as I am paying I hear a car pulling up across the street. Sure enough, there he was, coming out of the car and sitting on the hood, as if he was reenacting our first encounter.
He starts staring at me again. It felt as if he didn't remembed what had happened the last time. So I was like, no, this time, I'm calling the cops on you. I get in my car, and of course he rushes to get in his. I call 911 an I explain that the situation. I tell the operator that this is the SAME man that did this to me a month ago. She told me to wait there and that she would send a few officers over, but that it might take some time until they get here. So I thought, since this guy is now making me lose sleep, I might as well have some fun. Also, note that he seemed a little bit retarded. As if he had some kind of mental issue.
So for the next 40 minutes, he would copy my every move. I got out of the car, he got out of the car. I got back in, he got back in. I started the engine, he started the engine. I turned on the lights, he turned on the lights. This little game was going on for the whole 40 minutes. A few times, I tricked him into thinking that I would actually drive off, so he drove a few meters, checked if I was coming, and then did a U turn and came back. After these long 40 minutes, 4 officers on bikes arrrive at the scene. I immediately point at him and say: 'That's the guy'. He was sitting at the hood of his car so he couldn't just drive off this time.
The two policemen start asking him questions, and the other two ask me for my ID and my version of events. After I explained everything to them, they do a quick search of his car and they find some rope in his trunk. That didn't proove anything though. At some point, this guy started walking up to me, yelling at me, saying: ' I don' t know you miss, when did I ever cause you any trouble, I've never seen you before, I didn't do anything to you! '. The policemen stopped him right away. I was infuriated so I replied and said: ' Yeah right act as if you don't know me you piece of shit, you followed me home a month ago, don't you remember? '. He insisted, telling the police officers that he hadn't done anthing and that he had no idea who I was or what I was talking about.
After the police officers collected all of the information they needed, they pulled me aside (one of them was watching him) and they informed me about my options. Me, being naive and not knowing many things about the law, I listened to the police officers, who basically told me that there was no point in pressing charges. He hadn't taken any action. He hadn't physically hurt me. So taking him to court is basically pointless. That's what they said.
They told him to get in his car and leave. They asked me if I needed anything and I hesitated but I eventually asked them if they could escort me to my home because I wasn't feeling safe after that.
A year goes by. It's 2021. It is around that same time that guy had followed me home the year before. I am sitting in the living room with my mom, watching the news. And this title appears on screen: 48 yr old man tried to abduct a 13 yr old girl riding the bike to her home in _____(the name of my city). They show a blurred picture of him on the news. I immediately knew it was him. There were no public pictures of the guy yet. I tell my mom: 'It's the guy that followed me home, I'm sure it's him'. I sit and watch the whole coverage on the case. It happened in broad day light. They found sleeping pills in his car. He was calling her beautiful and he was following her with his car as she was riding her bike back home. He asked her if she needed a ride and when she declined the offer, he started shouting at her and demanding that she gets in his car now. The girl escaped and went straight to her parents and they called the police.
I immediately got dressed and went to the police station to give my statement. I sat there three hours, recalling every moment from those two times he tried to follow me. There were phone call records where I was saying the licence plate. There were police records from the time I called the police on him. At the end, they showed me a picture of him and I confirmed that I recognised him.
After the trial, he was sentenced to 6 months in prison and 6 months house arrest. Do I think that's enough? Absolutely not. But at least I know that I did everything in my power so that he would get locked up. I know I could have pressed charges but honestly the officers made me think there was no point in doing that. Also, I had just finished school, it's not that I am all wise now but life has taught me a few lessons since then.

2023.05.28 08:18 AlexSciChannel My personal rewrite of the Infinity Castle arc - Part 1
For the record. It is an amazing arc and croc-sensei did spectacularly on it. I just think it didn't reach its peak potential. Structurally I think some of the battles should be reorganized. In my rewrite most of the arc will stay the same, though there will be new sequences and new characters.
Hashira training arc preemptive rewrites:
In order for my Infinity castle rewrite to work I'll have to add a character that's introduced in this training arc. Though the rewrites here aren't that extensive so it's just a small section.
First off, I didn't like how the Demon Slayer corps didn't even attempt to fill in the empty spots for Hashira left behind by Kyojuro and Tengen. So here I am introducing a new character that is going to be Rengoku's former Tsuguko and now the current Flame Hashira as she has replaced Rengoku after his death. I don't wanna put too much thought into names or this will come off as fanfiction so I'll just call her Yurei for convenience sake.
The basic character profile is that she was student under Kyojuro after he saved her from a Demon that killed her family yada yada. She always lived in the shadow of her fellow senior disciple-mate Mitsuri Kanroji who was also a student of Kyojuro's and originally the first pick to be his Tsuguko. That was until Mitsuri decided she wanted to be a Hashira herself and entered the ranks without replacing anyone. So the Tsuguko position fell to Yurei being the second choice for Rengoku's succession. So there's a bit of jealousy between this new character has Mitsuri.
She is teaches one of the rounds of the Hashira training that takes place before Mitsuri. It focuses on [insert cool anime martial art aspect here]. The point here is that Tanjiro isn't liked by the new Hashira and is purposefully and unfairly withholding him from progressing to the next round. Stemming from jealousy that Tanjiro was there in Rengoku's last moments and she felt like he valued him more as an apprentice despite never officially being his master. The goal here for Tanjiro would be to resolve this inferiority complex and show that Tanjiro is just a nice dude that doesn't want to steal other people's mentors.
She stops hating on Tanjiro but tells him to make sure he completes Mitsuri's training round faster than he did her's to prove her regimen is more difficult that Mitsuri's. That's it for Hashira training.
Muzan's conversation with Kagaya Ubuyashiki Rewrite:
This entire scene in the Infinity Castle arc I thought was perfection and really no need for changes. This is simply my alternative version that includes some cool ideas. So if you don't want to hear it and just want to see my rewrites for things I thought could be improved, you can skip this section.
So my alternative for this scene keeps basically all the dialogue in the exact same way it was depicted in the manga but has a new scene after it. Instead of Kagaya kamikazing his own home, he unsheathes a family heirloom sword with a pitch-white blade. Now I know what you're thinking. Kagaya isn't a fighter, and that's part of his charm that you don't need to be physically strong to be a good leader. But hear this out.
I am going by logic that since the Ubuyashiki family were the first victims of the Demon scourge and leaders of Demon Slayers, it would be hard to believe they didn't have any in family defenses. In my rewrite I have them be the progenitors of a new type of breathing, Light breathing.
This breathing style has 15 forms total, second most behind Moon breathing, and not a single one of these forms are used for attack. Yep, heard that right. In this rewrite, Light breathing is an evolved version of basic recovery breathing utilized to its maximum potential. In the lore it would've been used for seemingly inhuman feats of healing and regeneration from physical trauma and disease. It would also make sense that this style would be created by the Ubuyashiki family during efforts to find ways to mitigate their curse. And although it has no effect of canceling out curses or magics, Kagaya uses it to temporarily heal the physical effects of his curse.
Thinking Kagaya wants to fight, Muzan instantly unleashes a fury of attacks. And this scene we get to see full destructive utilization of all Muzan's blood demon arts, not limited by any poisons or miracle medicines procured by Tamayo yet. Kagaya doesn't attack, but instead, in his new temporary healthy state, uses Light breathing to deflect attacks, continuously mend wounds, and temporarily blind/stun Muzan. Kagaya won't throw a single attack the entire fight, thus preserving his Buddha like nature.
In reality, the confrontation is to stall for time until the demon slayers arrive. Using his mystical foresight, Kagaya skillfully calculates how to evade each of Muzan's destructive attacks. Muzan realizes this and thus procures situations where even if Kagaya can forsee different ways of how he evades in the future, all options will involve him being fataly injured. But even after he is gravely mutilated by Muzan's attacks, the Light breathing forms he uses in response heals all wounds and poisons completely.
Another fact about Light breathing is that, the breathing method itself is derived from Wisteria plants' respiration and transpiration of chemicals. So in a sense it mimics the qualities of Wisteria. Thus including another added affect. Any demon in close proximity of someone using Light breathing has their Blood Demon Arts temporarily weakened at an exponential level and so is their regeneration slowed down massively. This comes into play when Kagaya thinks he's stalled enough and then detonates his house, killing him and his family. Muzan doesn't die but since he regenerates almost instantly, it was essential to be in proximity to the Light breathing so Tamayo could have time to insert the medicine and give the Hashira an advantage.
The sequence of events immediately before and during entering the Infinity Castle stays the same.
First Round Infinity Castle Battles - Shinobu vs Douma Zenitsu vs Kaigaku:
Nothing changes from the manga. Perfection. Just think, it should be more apparent that they take place semi-simaltaneously.
Second Round Infinity Castle Battles - Tanjiro & Giyu vs Akaza Urokodaki, Tengen Uzui, Shinjuro, & Nezuko vs Jigoku Uzui (New Upper Moon 5):
The events of the Akaza fight are not changed and neither are the events surrounding it.
Simply adding another battle that takes place at the same time. This battle is with the former Hashira and certified Nezuko protection gang, fighting against Tengen Uzui's brother and current demon shinobi, Jigoku Uzui. I chose the name because Tengen means heaven and Jigoku means hell.
(Flashback) After the dispatch of Gyokko in the swordsmith village, Akaza was tasked with finding a good candidate to replace him. He stumbled upon the ruthless shinobi culture cultivated by the Uzui family. Seeing how they're a group of efficient warriors that don't hold any ethical qualms, Akaza challenged both Tengen's father and Jigoku to combat at which they fought him at the same time. If Akaza won they'd agree to become demons, and they'll keep they're clan but as long as they're loyal to Lord Muzan. But if father Uzui and Jigoku won, Akaza would leave them alone. The fight devolves and eventually involves Jigoku's children joining in. Akaza defeats Jigoku and kills his father as well as a few of his children. Recognizing the ones that have survived as strong and Jigoku as a worthy adversary, he gives him and his surviving children Muzan's blood to be turned to demons. The Uzui clan is now loyal to Muzan and Jigoku Uzui has been nominated as Upper Moon rank 5.
(Current) I think it will be an interesting dynamic with Tengen encountering his brother again and this time as a Demon. It will make for lots of drama as well as an interesting fight between two shinobi and two swordsmen. Nezuko would stay asleep most of the fight with Urokodaki directly protecting her. Speaking of, in this rewrite Jigoku was sent by Muzan to directly collect Nezuko and bring her to him.
Now about Jigoku's Blood Demon Art. I decided he should have the full arsenal of basic shinobi weaponry like Tengen and his wives, however his main weapon and instrument of the Blood Demon art is that of a double sided kusarigama. Basically a staff with dual sickles on each end and a chain holding a miniature mace extending from the staff's center. The blood demon art entails rapid spinning of the dual sided kusarigame of which blood tendrils extend from the ends causing extreme destruction while boosting speed.
At first, Jigoku is overwhelmed by the pure skill of these three master former Hashira. Even though they're rusty techniquewise, their coordination is perfected through endless battle experience. Jigoku's head is severed but wait, it's not over. Three more demons sprout from his neck and seperate. Jigoku's sons/Tengens nephews turned demons. Jigoku regrows his head and the real battle begins.
The fight plays out as a team battle with constantly switching opponents and locations around the Ubuyashiki estate. When it comes to the oldy swordsmen, Shinjuro is almost a mirror image of his son Kyojuro when Tengen sees him in battle, warming his heart. The only difference is that the sincerety that once inhabited the former flame Hashira is gone and has been replaced with a new layer of ferocity when fighting. Shinjuro isn't only fighting to protect or for honor, but to utterly crush his opponent in raging fire. Urokodaki still has that veil of sympathy and sincerity but his fighting style is different from Giyu's. The former fights in the style of a raging river controlled yet violent, while Giyu's is more calm and feeling, using current like movement to use the energy of the attacker back at them.
The 3 Uzui demon brothers all have Upper Moon 5 on their eyes despite not being the main threat. From strongest to weakest, there's the eldest brother, the youngest brother and the middle brother.
In the second half of the battle Nezuko wakes up and realizes she has limited time as a Demon left as she is slowly reverting to being a human. So she participates in the battle aiding the former Hashira. I thought this would be a good parallel to take place at the same time as the Akaza fight as it would be brother and sister fighting different Upper Moons simultaneously.
At the climax of the battle Tengen manages to get a Demon Slayer Mark over his right eye with a series of parallel curved lines, increasing in size the further up the forehead they go. This is supposed to mimic soundwaves. Eventually all heads are severed with Jigoku's specifically being cut off by a marked Tengen. But one of the Demon brother's head was instead ripped off by Nezuko and not by a nichirin blade. So they don't disintegrate, which gives headless Jigoku enough time to surprise attack Shinjuro, stabbing him through the heart with one of the broken off kusarigama blades, killing him. Tengen avoids the attack of the headless Jigoku because he's also a Shinobi and Nezuko protects Urokodaki. Nezuko uses one last push of power to use her exploding blood to completely disintegrate the body of one of the headless demon brothers before any of them can reattach their heads. Now all demons left are headless by nichirin blades, they disintegrate.
Last Note: probs gonna continue into multiple parts. Don't really care if anyone reads the whole thing. Only for my personal peace of mind so I don't forget. Sorry if this is too long. If you do end up enjoying, thanks.

2023.05.28 08:18 cookalot [THANK YOU] 💌LOVING ALL THE INTERESTING POSTCARDS💌
What a huge postcard and the most unusual food setting I've seen lately. It took me a few minutes to get the postcard turned the right way and then focus on the woman. That could be considered as Halloween creepy to some people. Not me, I love playing with food and seeing what all can be made with it to entertain your eyes. I'm glad I could be one of your first to send a card to. You did not disappoint me at all. I love it! I appreciate it so much and sending you a hug in appreciation. 🤗 Take care and hope we can stay in touch. ☔📨👩🏻🍳 u/inconsolableonion
Nice vintage postcard. The one gal doing the limbo is really close to showing us too much!! I appreciate the recipe as well. Sounds like something I will try next time I cook turkey. A lot of people only eat turkey at Thanksgiving but, we eat it several times a year. The leftovers are the best. Thanks, you so much and hope we can stay in touch. Many hugs for the card and recipe🤗 Be well until next time...📨☔ 👩🏻🍳 u/Simple-Referance-357
It was so kind and generous of you to share your vintage postcards. I found both of them very interesting. I can only imagine what it would have been like living back in the 1838 and I found the Oneida Plan No.8 an interesting choice to make a postcard out of an 1877 house plan. Thanks for the tip on the cake recipe. I will look it up because we like that type of cake. I appreciate all you sent and hope we can stay in touch. Hugs a plenty for the cards and recipe tip...🤗👩🏻🍳📨 u/DianaPenPal
Gee, thanks for the postcard and the delish sounding recipe. I have several lined up to try and I will put this in that stack as to make. I'm thinking this might need some parm cheese on top to finish it off. I am going to send you a PM to ask a question. Hope we can stay in touch, be well and enjoy your weekend. Hugs to you...🤗👩🏻🍳☔ u/feellikebeingajerk
I love the card and snow. Getting stuck in the house and can't get out is great. I like to go thru the house gathering things to cook just to see what I can come up with. Now if we have no power, I cook on a gas grill and take all the perishable food, put it in a garbage bag and tie it up so no animals can smell it and bury it in the snow. Some of my best meals have been with no power. One year I had access to a wood stove, so I baked cornbread and cooked a large pot of pinto beans. Beans taste better cooked on a wood stove with snow on the ground. 😁 Thank you so much, stay well and hope we can stay in touch...Hugs🤗📪👩🏻🍳
