I spend a lot of time on Reddit. It’s my depression and anxiety medicine. It’s what I like to do when I’m wanting to cope with something. When I’m stressed out and I just need to unwind or de-stress, I hop on Reddit. I always like to scroll through this sub and other subs like JustNoSO, relationship_advice, and other subs that are similar. I usually sort by new and start from the top and work my way down, especially in this sub. I spend most of my Reddit time here, looking through new posts and reading 20+ posts of people here just venting, letting out their frustrations, telling their story of an abusive relationship, or maybe even feeling so bad that you’ve now posted about how your life would be much better if you weren’t here. I always comment on people’s post and try to give a good explanation of why their relationship or life is the way it is. I try to respond to posts and give advice on how to get out of that relationship or what to do to make it better. I even offer financial help to those crying out with a plea because they’re so stuck where they’re at that they physically or financially cannot leave and it would be almost impossible for them to leave given the situation that they’re in because their SO makes all the money and owns everything. Most of these posts in here are women posting, crying out for help (Men, this post is for you too. Do not think that none of this can’t happen to you. I’ve seen it here too. Please men, take my advice too. I’m offering the same help to you as I am the women!). I will say, I am a husband of 8 years and a father to 2 boys. One is 13 and the other is only 6. It breaks my heart seeing women post here crying out for help because they’re in a relationship that their SO physically abuses them, mentally abuses them, psychologically abuses them, cheating or flirting with other women or online, I can go on and on and on about all the types of abuse these women go through that I see here. It kills me to know and see so many women go through this. I try my best to offer as much support as I can to these women in hopes that they take my advice to heart and actually use my advice or messages me because they just want someone who will listen to them and give them better advice on what to do. Sometimes they just want to vent to me and I accept it because sometimes people just need an ear because the one they have at home is not.

2020.09.21 05:00 hammauauahaahnaMy fix of Star Wars: Episode VIII
(This is part two of my sequel trilogy fix, there are elements in this that won’t make sense if you haven’t read part 1. This one is a lot longer than the last, and it’s the one I’m most proud of of these rewrites, so I hope people enjoy it) Episode VII:https://www.reddit.com/usenamanhahaja/comments/ixcb8q/my_fix_of_star_wars_episode_vii/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf Episode VIII This movie will take place a little under a year after TFA, unlike the original movie. The camera will open to an X-Wing flying through space, piloted by Poe Dameron. Around him, there will be a battle between the First Order and several Resistance ships, instead of just one. In this version part of the New Republic Fleet has escaped the destruction of Hosnian Prime and has joined the Resistance. The battle is more evenly matched at first than a standard Rebels vs Empire thing. One of the Resistance cruisers will be destroyed by the sheer firepower of the First Order, shocking the resistance. Poe will lead the same bombing run he did in the movie, with Paige Tico dying. However, in this version, the bombs will be rocket propelled instead of acting as if there is gravity in space. The Resistance fleet will all jump into hyperspace, escaping the battle. The camera cuts to General Pryde, where he will get a communication from Snoke. Snoke will say that he is disappointed, and Pryde will reassure him that the Resistance cannot run for long. He will not be thrown down like Hux was, and he will not be made into comedic relief. Finn will wake in a bacta tank, having been in a coma for several months from the injuries he sustained from his duel with Kylo. The medical droids will release him from the tank. Poe will then rush into the medical bay, to see the medical droids fitting Finn with a prosthetic arm. Their conversation will be the same as the actual movie, with Finn eventually asking where Rey is. The camera cuts to Rey on Ach-To, running with Leia’s lightsaber in her hand. She is doing an obstacle course prepared by Luke Skywalker, jumping over boulders and deflecting blaster fire from training remotes. She will not be doing too well, getting nicked by a couple shots, but she will eventually finish it, making it to Luke’s domed Jedi temple. Luke is waiting there for her, where he smirks and says that she was sloppy. Rey looks disappointed and sighs. In this version, Luke didn’t try to kill Kylo Ren, but he feels that both he and the Jedi as a whole are flawed due to his inability to stop Ben from turning to the dark side. Even though most of Luke’s students were killed, three of Luke’s students survived in this version, and are on Ach-To with him. In this scene, it is made clear that even though Luke has agreed to train Rey, he has done so very begrudgingly. The camera cuts to Snokes throne room, where Kylo walks out of the elevator, with the Knights of Ren entering from behind him. Most of the conversation between Kylo and Snoke will go the same, with Snoke making fun of his mask and saying that Kylo has much of his father in him. Like in the movie, Kylo will say the he killed Han Solo, and Snoke will say that the act split Kylo to the bone. Snoke will reprimand him for “Believing that defeating a stormtrooper and a girl who had never held a lightsaber while letting Starkiller base crumble makes him comparable to Vader” and for failing to stop Rey from finding Luke. Kylo will angrily stand up to attack, Snoke blasting Kylo with force lightning remains the same. The praetorian guards will draw their weapons, and so will the Knights of Ren to protect Kylo, resulting in a standoff. I’m trying to have more of a rival general feel, than a master and apprentice feel. Even though Snoke is Kylo’s master, the Knights of Ren are loyal to Kylo, not Snoke. Snoke laughs and waves his hand, and the Praetorian guards will sheath their weapons. As Kylo gets to his feet, the Knights of Ren will do the same. Snoke will say to Kylo “You want to kill me. That is the way of the Sith, they killed their masters to gain power. But we are not Sith, and you are no Vader, just a child in mask” Kylo destroying his mask in the elevator will remain the same. When the elevator doors open, Kylo and the Knights of Ren will enter the bridge. Kylo will say “Prepare our ships” Cutting back to Ach To, Rey will be inside the library tree, reading through the ancient Jedi texts. Luke will walk in, and tell Rey that the Jedi failed. That the Jedi need to be moved on from, and stop trying to affect the galaxy, as every time they do, it just leads to more pain and destruction. Rey will protest, saying that the Jedi need to live on, as they inspire hope in the galaxy. Luke will then reply like he did in the actual movie, saying that the Jedis hubris was what allowed Darth Sidious to wipe them out and that it was a Jedi who was responsible for the creation of Darth Vader. Rey will reply like she did in the movie, saying “It was also a Jedi who redeemed him” before asking him, clearly not for the first time, to come with her to help the Resistance. Luke will be unable to respond to this, looking down and telling Rey that she’s had a hard day of training, and should go get some rest. Rey and Luke will exit the ancient library. Luke goes to his domed temple and Rey will go down to the huts, where she will be greeted by Luke’s three surviving students. Rey has a disappointed look on her face, so they ask her what’s wrong. Rey says “Master Skywalker...what’s wrong with him? I’ve heard legends about him, I didn’t expect him to be like this” Lukes students will look saddened by this comment. One of them replies “He hasn’t been the same since that night. When Ben turned, we lost so many people...” He chokes up and trails off, and another one of Luke’s students puts her hand on his shoulder to comfort him, before she says to Rey “Master Skywalker blames himself for what happened to Ben” Rey turns and looks towards Luke’s temple, now beginning to understand why her comment about him redeeming Vader hurt him so much. The camera cuts back to the remaining ships of the Resistance fleet. On the bridge of the Raddus, Finn and Poe will be standing with Leia. Admiral Akbar will sound the alarm and suddenly several Star Destroyers, including the Supremacy will come out of Hyperspace right behind the resistance fleet. As Kylo, the Knights of Ren and a few other TIE fighters fly towards the resistance fleet, General Pryde will order two Star Destroyers to flank the Raddus. The Raddus and the Star Destroyer open fire on each other, but due to the shielding on the Raddus, it takes only minimal damage while the Star Destroyer is destroyed. Poe and several resistance X-wings are engaged in a skirmish with the TIE fighters. Kylo and the Knights of Ren fly out to the Raddus and stop in front of it. Leia senses what’s going to happen and moves to the front of the bridge. Like in the movie, Kylo cannot bring himself to fire on his mother. Three of the Knights of Ren however, fire torpedoes at the bridge of the Raddus. Leia holds out her hand and closes her eyes. The torpedos suddenly stop in place. As Leia exhales, she uses the force to launch the torpedoes towards one of the Star Destroyers, destroying it. Kylo’s eyes widen from his cockpit as he sees this, before General Pryde contacts him. He tells Kylo to fall back, Kylo and the Knights of Ren return to the Supremacy. The Supremacy opens fire on the last remaining New Republic ship, destroying it. Back on the bridge of the Raddus, Leia collapses, as she hasn’t used the force on that large a scale in a long time. The camera then cuts to Luke watching Rey as she and one of Luke’s other students practice their lightsaber skills in a sparring match against each other with wooden staffs. Luke then drops to his knees, holding his chest in pain. Rey and the other student rush over to Luke, asking if he’s alright. He simply mutters “Leia...” Back on the Raddus, Admiral Ackbar says that General Organa is stable but unconscious, so he will have to take control of the fleet until she wakes up. Poe walks up confused, and asks why there is no plan. Akbar pulls him aside and tells him that he suspects there is a mole passing information to the First Order, as that is the only way they could’ve tracked them through light speed. The camera cuts to Rey and Chewie sitting outside the falcon at night, huddled around a campfire. Behind them, a hooded figure will sneak past them and enter the Falcon. Chewie will turn and roar, recognising Luke’s footsteps. Rey will simply sigh and say “He’s been going in there every night since we arrived” Inside the bridge of the Falcon, Luke will sit down on the cockpit chair and grab the dice belonging to Han Solo. Luke holds the dice close to his face as a tear rolls down his cheek. We never got to see Luke mourning Han in the original movie, so I really wanted to add a scene like this in. As he gets up and goes to get out, he is intercepted by R2, and we will get the same reunion scene between them, with Leia’s message from Episode IV, and Luke saying “That's a cheap move” before once again refusing to go help the Resistance. Everything with Rose and Finn at this point of the movie remains the same, except Finn isn’t trying to run away, he is trying to find Rey and warn her about the First Order. After Rose tases him, he reveals that there is no mole, and that the First Order has light speed tracking. They tell Poe, and contact Maz Kanata, who tells them there is someone on Canto Bight that can help them. They inform admiral Akbar, and he then sends Finn, Poe and Rose to Canto Bight. Akbar tells them that if they don’t come back in time, he will have to resort to a contingency plan. The camera cuts to Rey waking up in one of the huts. She sees Kylo Ren standing in front of her. This first force bond scene goes exactly the same as the actual movie. When Rey lies to Luke that her blaster just went off, he tells her to come with him. The scene of Luke teaching Rey to meditate and feel the force goes exactly the same as the movie. Luke is shocked when Rey goes straight to the dark. He tells her that there is a cave strong in the dark side on this island, and that Rey must go in there to confront her deepest fears and inner darkness. When Rey goes towards the cave, Luke tells her she will not need her weapons. When she asks why, he smirks and says she needs to trust him on this, referencing Luke’s own training in ESB. Rey drops her staff on the floor and leaves her belt with her blaster and lightsaber behind. As Rey walks in, she immediately has a vision of herself as an old woman on Jakku, scavenging for parts. The vision then changes to a view of Kylo swinging his lightsaber towards Finn's neck. Rey cries out and falls backwards, out of the cave. Luke will help her up and tell her that she has been in there for hours, even though it only felt like a few seconds. In her second attempt, she goes to the mirror room, which goes down the same way it did in the actual movie. She will walk to the end and ask who her parents are, and the cave will show her an image of her parents. However, as neither she nor the audience recognise the son of Palpatine and his wife, both Rey and the audience will assume that they are nobodies. Rey will look at them and walk past them. As she moves on, she no longer feels afraid of what will happen to her, or her friends and she no longer cares about her lineage, as she knows that she is a Jedi. She calmly walks out of the cave and Luke puts a hand on her shoulder. Next, we cut to Canto Bight. It is controlled by the Hutts in this version, and we will see a Hutt lording over the casino. It makes perfect sense for the Hutts to make money by selling weapons to both sides of the war. There are no slave children or space horses, I want to trim down this scene to focus more on the scenes that actually matter. On the Raddus, Leia will wake up in the medical bay after Luke reaches out to her through the force, just like she did in the actual movie. Luke will pause for a moment, deep in thought, before standing up and running towards the huts. Instead of DJ, Finn, Rose and Poe meet Lando. Lando agrees to go with them, but then security walks up to him and says that he has an outstanding debt with the house. There is a bit of a chase scene, and they eventually get to their ship and get off the planet. We cut back to Ach-To, where Kylo and Rey are speaking through a force bond in one of the huts. This one is more deep, where Kylo reveals a lot about his past, and his struggle with the dark side. As they talk, Rey realises that Kylo is not completely consumed by the dark side. Even though he has enough hate and pain to corrupt a Kyber crystal, there is still good in him. They will both touch hands, and then we will hear Luke’s voice from a distance. After having reached out to Leia, Luke has changed his mind. He says “Rey, I was wrong, I will come with you to help the Resist-“ As he enters the hut he cuts himself off upon seeing Rey and Kylo touching hands. He then cuts their force connection and blows apart the hut like he did in the actual movie. Luke then storms away from Rey, as she follows him into the rain. Rey grabs Luke’s shoulder and turns him around. She says that there is still good in Ben Solo, and that with Luke’s help, she knows she can redeem him. Luke will say that Ben’s turn was all his fault, that he saw the darkness in Ben from a young age, and that he tried to help him but failed. Luke trusted Ben, and had faith that he would overcome his darkness, until one day Luke went off on a mission to another planet with a handful of his students. While Luke was away, something happened that made Ben snap. Luke came back to find his Jedi academy in flames and most of his students dead. Luke looks at Rey, his eyes filled with sorrow and regret, and he says that he cannot lose her the way he lost Ben. At this point, all the noise and commotion has woken up Luke’s three remaining students. They are all standing around, watching this conversation unfold. Rey takes Leia’s lightsaber from her belt and holds it out towards Luke, silently begging him to come with her. Luke just looks down in shame and says nothing. Rey angrily scoffs before clipping the lightsaber to her belt and going to the Falcon and leaving the planet. Finn, Poe, Rose and Lando will board the supremacy, where they will be caught and arrested by stormtroopers, except that Lando will obviously not betray them like DJ did. Finn talks to the stormtroopers, as he knows them, and tries to convince them that what the First Order is doing is wrong. He will use his trauma and his experience with the Resistance to try to get through to the other stormtroopers, giving a moving and heartfelt speech. He manages to get through to them a little, but they still take him to Phasma and General Pryde to be executed, though they clearly aren’t happy about it. After having woken up, Leia will then go to the bridge of the Raddus, where Admiral Akbar will tell her that Finn, Rose and Poe have failed to stop the light speed tracking, Leia sighs and says they must fall back onto their last resort contingency plan. The resistance troops all go down to the docking bay of the Raddus, where the Tantive IV is being held. Leia orders them all to enter her ship. The Tantive IV takes off and heads towards Crait, while the Raddus, now only piloted by Admiral Akbar, continues flying at a slow pace to distract the First Order. Back on Ach-To, Luke goes to burn the tree with the sacred Jedi texts and the exact scene from the movie with the force ghost of Yoda happens. It is a beautiful scene, and I wouldn’t change a moment of it. On board the Supremacy, the scene with Snoke, Rey and Kylo will go mostly the same. However, instead of saying that he bridged Rey and Kylo’s minds, Snoke will reveal that they are a dyad in the force. Snokes death and Rey and Kylo’s fight against the Praetorian guards will remain almost exactly the same. The only differences are that Snoke will be killed by Leia’s lightsaber instead of Anakin’s, and that Kylo’s unstable crossguard lightsaber will be destroyed by the last Praetorian Guard. As the guard is strangling him, Kylo will draw Anakin’s lightsaber from his belt, which he corrupted and made the blade red in the last movie, and stab it through the guards face. It’s sad that I have to say this, but the editing and choreography in this fight will be better. Rey and Kylo’s conversation after the fight will be exactly the same. When Rey refuses to join him, he reaches for Anakin’s corrupted lightsaber, but Rey grabs it with the force, and they both battle over the saber with the force. Except it is not destroyed, as Admiral Akbar sacrifices himself in the same way Holdo did before it can be. Much like in the actual movie, Akbar’s sacrifice will allow Finn, Poe, Rose and Lando to escape being executed and fight back. A shootout will occur and Finn will fight Phasma. As in this version, Finn fought Phasma in the last movie and lost, this is a rematch. Phasma will eventually disarm Finn, but as she goes for the killing blow, Finns blocks the swing by grabbing her wrist with his metal arm. As they struggle, one of the stormtroopers Finn spoke to earlier will shoot Phasma in the back, distracting her. Using the mechanical strength of the prosthetic, Finn throws Phasma back into a chasm that has opened up from the destruction of the ship. Phasma is hanging onto the edge for her life. Finn tries to save Phasma by holding out his hand for her to grab onto, but she snarls “Rebel scum!” And let’s go, letting herself fall to her death. Finn, Rose, Poe and Lando will then come face to face the stormtroopers that first arrested them. However, as Finn got through to them earlier, they lower their blasters and allow our heroes to escape. On Crait, things will go similar to the actual movie, with the battle going south for the Resistance. The Resistance docks the Tantive IV inside the abandoned Rebel Base. Finn, Poe, Rose and Lando will arrive in Snokes shuttle and join the battle, but will eventually hide in the abandoned rebel base with the rest of the resistance. Rose will still stop Finn's attempted sacrifice because she can’t lose another friend the way she lost her sister, but there will be no forced romance between Finn and Rose. This is when Luke Skywalker will show up. His interactions with Leia, C3PO and the rest of the Resistance will go exactly the same. He will then walk out of the hole that was blasted in the base. Rey and Chewie have arrived in the Falcon at this point and are taking on TIE fighters like they did in the actual movie. Kylo will tell everyone to fire on Luke. A key difference in this version is that Luke’s force projection will actually be able to interact with the world around it, which explains why it is taxing enough on Luke to be able to kill him, to be able to almost teleport himself across the galaxy while not being there. When the AT-M6s open fire on Luke, he holds out his hand and all the blasts hit an invisible wall in front of him, similar to how Cere Junda deflected Vader’s lightsaber in Jedi:Fallen Order, but on a much larger scale. When the AT-M6s stop firing, Luke will brush his shoulder sarcastically like he did in the actual movie. He then reaches out with both hands and closes his eyes. Through the force, Luke pulls the AT-M6s to the ground. In their shuttle, both Kylo and General Pryde watch in shock as the walkers come crashing to the ground. Kylo then lands his shuttle in front of Luke and steps out. When Kylo says “Are you here to redeem me, to save my soul?” Luke will reply “The only person who can do that is you, but I am here to help guide you down the right path. I won’t leave you Ben, not this time” Kylo snarls in rage before taking off his cloak and igniting Anakin’s corrupted red lightsaber. Luke sighs with regret and ignites his green lightsaber. The duel between Luke and Kylo will remain mostly the same, with the samurai style camerawork, the close ups of their faces and subtle changes in their stances. Much like in the movie, Luke will fight purely defensively, easily dodging all of Kylo’s strikes. Kylo eventually gets frustrated and angrily calls Luke a coward. Luke replies with “I failed you Ben, I’m sorry” Their dialogue from here goes on exactly the same as the movie. When Kylo goes to kill Luke, his lightsaber goes right through Luke as if he wasn’t even there. As Kylo realises what is going on, and prods Luke’s image with his lightsaber, Luke’s image starts to slowly fade away. “See ya around kid” he says before vanishing. The camera cuts to Luke hovering in mid air while meditating in his temple, overlooking the sunset on Ach-To. He collapses from exhaustion. Before Luke dies, we hear a voice belonging to Obi-Wan Kenobi, telling Luke to let go and that he can finally rest now. Luke Skywalker fades away and becomes one with the force as the sun sets. After Luke vanishes, Kylo screaming in rage will remain the same. Rey lifting the rocks with the force and the Resistance escaping from Crait goes exactly the same as the original movie. When Kylo storms the rebel base, we will see the Knights of Ren cut down a few Resistance troops to make them more of a credible threat. Kylo finding Han Solo’s dice, which fade away in his hand will remain the same. The Falcon and the Tantive IV dock to each other in space. Rey telling Leia that she sensed that Luke died with peace and purpose remains the same. Everyone celebrates their survival, however they all then hear a raspy and cold voice echo through the air, the voice of Palpatine speaking to everyone through the force: ”At last the work of generations is complete, the great error is corrected. The day of reckoning is at hand, the day of revenge, the day of the Sith!” Everyone is shocked and terrified, asking what just happened, and what they are meant to do. Rey, Leia, Finn and Poe will calm everyone down, telling them that they must fight on. Both ships go into hyperspace, and the credits roll. (I’d love to hear people’s criticism and feedback in the comments)
2020.09.15 19:20 weedftw_69We watched the star wars movies with my dad: the sequel (spoilers warning)
Original post: https://www.reddit.com/StarWars/comments/i5c9wx/we_watched_the_star_wars_movies_with_my_dad/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share So we finally watched the last Jedi and rise of Skywalker,we also saw rogue one and solo, here's his thoughts: The last Jedi: he actually really really liked it,he especially loved the battle at the throne room and told me kylo ren was one of the best characters in the series. He later told me this and return of the Jedi were his favorites! Rise of Skywalker: He, pretty controversially of course,liked it,he is pretty neutral about the revival of Palpatine and joked about it that Palpatine got marvelized(an obvious reference to the fact characters keep coming back in marvel movies). He was shocked at the end when Rey goes back to the place Luke used to live in and Barried leia's and Luke's sabers. Rogue one: He first didn't wanna watch it because it isn't really that important but when he did watch it he really liked it,he was pretty surprised Palpatine didn't at least make a cameo but he didn't mind it,he also was surprised to see they CGIed peter cushing back to life. He also loved the final scene with Vader slashing the rebels. Solo: He liked it A LOT more than I thought he would. Since han solo is his favorite character after all it makes since. He liked how it was basically a space Western since he grew up with westerns after all. He was a bit confused about how maul came back but I explained it to him. Me and my dad are currently looking for more star wars material since we are both huge star wars fans now,any good suggestions???
Guild Recruitment Is your guild slowly withering? More placeholder than active members? Do you feel like all the loot goes to the same top 5 players? Are you looking to be part of an active group and not an afterthought? We are a growing, active guild that plays daily.

2020.09.07 19:55 removalbot09-07 17:55 - 'Binance lists WBTC amid the ongoing DeFi craze' (self.Bitcoin) by /u/cryptobusinessworld removed from /r/Bitcoin within 102-112min
''' [Binance lists WBTC amid the ongoing DeFi craze]1 Along with the DeFi rally, demand for Wrapped Bitcoin is increasing. [Binance]2 is the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange in terms of market capitalization. It is listing another token to support the growth of decentralized finance or DeFi. [Recently, it had launched the token ONT-33D]3 for decentralized trading. Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC) is a new ERC-20 token. It is pegged to the price of Bitcoin (BTC). It is now tradeable on Binance. Binance users can now start deposit WBTC as well as trade the token against Ether (ETH) and Bitcoin. Wrapped Bitcoin is an Ethereum-based token. It was introduced in 2019. It represents Bitcoin. One WBTC is equal to one BTC. WBTC is a joint initiative. It was launched by major DeFi players. These include Ren, BitGo, Kyber Network, Dharma, MakerDAO, Compound, and the Set Protocol. The token aims to bring more liquidity into the Ethereum network. It also aims to implement it in the DeFi industry. It is a part of WBTC’s functionality in DeFi. The token allows Bitcoin holders to keep holding BTC while also using DeFi apps to borrow or lend money. DeFi, or Decentralized finance, envisions a brand-new monetary system. The system is built on top public blockchains. DeFi platforms connect borrowers and lenders. This directly eliminates credit checks. These enable digital assets to be collateralized. DeFi provides decentralized lending as its key benefit. In 2020, the DeFi industry has been growing exponentially. The total value locked in the market has hit $9 billion on Aug. 30. Uniswap is the most widely-used decentralized exchange on Ethereum. It has surpassed significant crypto exchange Coinbase in daily volume on Aug 30. DeFi continues to see a meteoric rise. The demand for WBTC is also up, hitting $274 million in circulation by mid-August. This year, Binance has been embracing the DeFi market. In August 2020, Binance launched DeFi staking. This was in partnership with major industry players like Kava Labs and Compound Finance. In April, Binance issued a new DeFi token. It was backed by the crypto asset, Ontology (ONT).

2020.09.04 15:41 arecords94A Mission of First - Part 5
[Previous][First] [Next] ...and thanks to their valiant efforts, fire damage to the museum was minimized, however- what’s that? Right now? Ladies and Gentlemen I’m just now receiving word of a breaking news story. Humanity’s first faster than light capable ship, the Sacagawea, has splashed down in the Pacific Ocean weeks before it was scheduled to return. Details are scarce, but a nearby cruise ship was able to render aid to the ship and recover the astronauts on board. Photographs from witnesses aboard the cruise ship show the Sacagawea crew, consisting of Commander Glenn Thompson, Pilot Ron Parker, and Engineer Jack Takeuchi, alive and well after removal from the ship. Mysteriously, witness photographs also seem to show one other person being recovered from the ship, with rumors of a second extra person still on board. Neither NASA nor JAXA have yet to release an official statement on the events currently unfolding. I laid in bed, listening to the birds sing outside of my window as I tried to push back the anxiety and panic from the previous night’s dreams. The days and nights were longer here, and even after more than a month I still found myself rising before the sun. Across the hall, I could hear the sound of snoring. Ron wasn’t awake yet, but the sun was beginning to rise and he’d be up shortly. I stood up and stretched, sighing contentedly as my back cracked, then pulled on a t-shirt and some sweatpants. I wandered groggily to the kitchen. Feeling particularly lazy, I pulled a box of frozen pancakes from the freezer and turned on the oven. Sure, the microwave would have been faster, but I still didn’t trust something that emitted radiation with so little shielding. I opened the box and noted with dismay that it was almost empty. We’d definitely need to go out to get more. I sat down at the kitchen table and contemplated my situation. The human government had allowed me a surprising amount of freedom, going so far as to allow me to go out in public, so long as I was under constant supervision. Not that I went out much. I wasn’t entirely comfortable with all the attention I drew. I almost think I would have preferred staying hidden from the general public altogether, but that wasn’t exactly feasible. Apparently we had splashed down near a human “cruise ship”. With the Sacagawea’s mission being such a high profile endeavor, the humans on board immediately recognized it and knew something had gone immensely wrong. The Sac’s mission profile had been highly publicized, and it was never meant to land back on Earth, let alone crash into the ocean, weeks ahead of schedule. Crew members from the cruise ship had already evacuated us from the bridge onto a lifeboat and were trying to figure out a way to move Jax by the time a US navy carrier showed up to retrieve us. Pictures of me slumped over on a lifeboat, disheveled and battered, had already spread around the world before we ever made landfall. Without any way to cover up my unexpected arrival, the existence of myself and my planet was formally announced to the general public, along with a general summary of everything that had transpired. I did a few interviews, both televised and behind closed doors, but I felt woefully under qualified to be speaking on behalf of my people. Especially when speaking to government officials. I mostly wanted to stay out of the spotlight. When it came time to address my living arrangements, Ron volunteered to “babysit” me, as he put it. He had a three bedroom house on a decent amount of land, and lived alone, so moving me in caused minimal disruption, and he was adamant that I not be left in some “prison dressed up like an apartment with a prison warden parading around as a bodyguard.” Especially since I would have been confined to said apartment for years as the humans painstakingly created more of the exotic matter required to fuel their FTL drives. After they made a new one. And if they even decided to send me home. Technically, that still wasn’t decided. Glenn was a regular visitor, but Jack had returned to his home country of Japan. He would still message us regularly though, which was nice. I heard a yawn and shuffling come from the hallway to the bedrooms. “Man, why are you always up so early?” Ron asked, heading straight to the coffee machine. I opened my mouth to answer but stopped. I had left my tablet in my room. Eyes closed in thought, I tried to remember the words in English. “Your nights are longer. I told you this. Many times.” Ron smiled at me. “Hey, that was pretty good! But it’s been over a month, learn to sleep in a little! We ain’t all morning people.” “Neither am I.” I said, pulling a baking sheet from the cabinet. “But your nights are long. And there are no more pancakes left.” Ron grabbed the box of pancakes from the table. “Dude, there’s like 4 left.” “And they are mine.” I said, grabbing the box back. I put the pancakes on the baking sheet and threw them in the oven. “You eat a lot of pancakes man.” Ron said, pouring himself a steaming cup of coffee. “They remind me of a…” I struggled to remember the word. “A food item you eat after a meal?” “A dessert?” “Yes, a dessert we had back home. A light… bread thing? With a sweet… covering?” Even though I had been awake for a while, I still wasn’t awake enough to really tackle English. It was, at times, an incomprehensibly convoluted language. “Oh, we have that too. It’s called cake.” “Is a pancake not a cake?” “No, well yes, but not really.” English. I rolled my eyes. “Cakes are generally lighter, sweeter, and covered with frosting, not syrup. They come in all kinds of flavors, and we usually eat them during special occasions and celebrations.” He took a sip of coffee. “And sometimes for dessert.” Ron stretched and looked out the window. “Whew, it looks like it's gonna be a beautiful day.” He was right, the sun was out and shining, and there were few clouds in the sky. The weather had been getting warmer as well. Ron had said we were in the season of Spring, where the cold receded and the plant life of Earth seemed to come back to life. I had noticed the fields outside begin to turn a rich green, with vibrant patches of color sprouting here and there. “Tell ya what Ren, how about we do something special today, huh?” Ron said, grinning as he set his cup down. “Get a little fresh air, enjoy the weather.” “As long as I don’t have to go in a grocery store.” I said, pulling my pancakes from the oven and promptly drenching them in syrup. “You know I don’t like going out in public.” Ron frowned. “You know, the more regularly you go out, the quicker people get used to you. I mean, I doubt people’ll ever get completely used to seeing you. You are the first alien to come to Earth, and your arrival wasn’t exactly what everyone expected, but…” he trailed off. “Well, worst case scenario, you get used to the publicity. Anyway, once you’re done eating, get dressed and meet me at the car. No grocery stores, public parks, or anything like that, promise.” I nodded, shoving pancakes in my mouth. I had no idea what Ron had planned, but I wasn’t sure I’d like it. He had admitted to me before that he was a bit of a thrill seeker. That was why he had become a test pilot, then an astronaut. He hadn’t tried to get me to try anything crazy yet, but I figured it was only a matter of time. And from what I had learned about humans so far, thrilling was synonymous with dangerous. But I was beginning to feel cramped from spending my days in Ron’s house with nothing to do but learn English and browse the “internet”. There was an astounding amount of information on the internet, and I had learned a lot about humanity from it, but sitting in front of a computer screen all day was growing stale. Eventually, I finished my meal, placed my dishes in the sink, and went to my room to get dressed. By the time I made my way to Ron’s car, he was already sitting inside, ready to go. “So where exactly are we going?” I asked, buckling myself into the chair next to Ron. “It’s a surprise!” He said cheerfully, typing a destination into the car’s nav system. The vehicle backed itself down Ron’s driveway and took off down the road with a quiet hum. At least the humans had the good sense to automate their ground transports, though Ron had taken manual control of the vehicle once before while I was riding along. It was a terrifying ordeal at the speeds we were going. Human ground transports, or cars, as they usually called them, generally travelled at much lower speeds than Tevucian grav transports, but relied on wheels and friction for directional control and lacked any gravity based inertia dampening. You felt every bit of the speed you were going, and the first few times I rode in one I suffered from severe motion sickness. That wasn’t an issue anymore, but driving at 80 mph in such close proximity to other vehicles while under manual control made my fur stand on end. Luckily, Ron seemed content to let the car drive itself this time and after only a few minutes, we rolled up to a gated lot in front of a squat, nondescript building on the edge of town. “What is this place?” “It’s a storage facility.” He said simply, rolling the window down to type a code into a pin pad in front of the gate. There was a beep and the gate began to slide open. The car pulled into the facility and I could make out several doors along one side of the building. We stopped in front of one and Ron climbed out of the car. He typed in a code on another keypad on the wall and the storage facility door rattled open. I climbed out of the car and followed him in. He flipped a switch on the wall and the storage unit was illuminated. “Is this….another car?” I asked, looking at the machine in front of me. It was obviously a car, but it was radically different from any other I had seen on the road. Whereas the ‘Tesla’ Ron normally drove was rounded and sleek, with flowing lines and a shape that emphasized cabin space and aerodynamic efficiency, this thing was angular, aggressive, and had almost comical proportions by comparison. The front section was long, flat, and came to a shallow point. The cabin section was short, with seating for four, though the vehicle only had two doors and the back seats looked almost vestigial. And the rear section was shorter still, tapering down slightly, with few lines and fewer curves to be found. Four round headlights were set into a grill that ran the width of the car's front end, flanking two smaller vertical grilles at the center. They made the car look angry somehow. Predatory. Dangerous. “This, my friend,” Ron said, throwing his arm around my shoulders, “is not just another car. This is a 1985 BMW M635CSI. She is a classic. Straight six engine, rear wheel drive, manual transmission, just like the Driving Gods intended.” I blinked in confusion. “I understood none of that.” “Alright, let me walk you through it.” He said, ushering me closer to the machine. “This car is a BMW, like the one outside is a Tesla. Different manufacturer. M635CSI is just the model name. It was made in 1985.” “Wait, 1985? Isn’t that over 100 years ago?” I looked at the car again. It definitely looked old. It’s maroon paint was faded, and most of it on the hood was flaking off. Small dents and scratches covered the sides of it. “Yes, she’s just a touch over 100, and still going. Mostly.” Ron smiled. “I bought her a couple years ago and just about coaxed her back to life right before the mission. I’ve been looking forward to taking her out on the road once I got back.” He opened the driver’s door and reached inside. There was a creak as a panel covering the front section popped open slightly. Ron came around and grabbed the panel near the base of the windshield. He lifted and the panel hinged open. We were greeted by a rectangular block of metal nestled amidst a tangle of hoses and wires and zip ties. “Yeah, it ain’t too pretty under here yet, still got some tidying up to do, but she runs.” Ron smiled proudly at the ungainly mechanism. “And this powers the car?” “Yeah, let me show you!” Ron said, sliding into the driver’s seat. I was staring at a particularly concerning looking bundle of taped together wires when the metal lump began heaving to life. A rhythmic whir emanated from the machine, interrupted by occasional sputtering coughs that shook the engine. The coughs and sputters increased in frequency until the car suddenly barked to life, snarling like a beast angry at being disturbed from its slumber, before settling into a low rumble that reverberated through the small storage unit and thrummed in my chest. I recoiled with a yelp at the sudden cacophony of sound. “Whoops, sorry bud. Forgot how loud this thing is.” Ron said casually, as if his eardrums weren’t currently being damaged. “Why is it so loud?” I yelled, pressing my ears firmly against my skull in an attempt to dampen the assault on my sense of hearing. “Why’s it so what-oh, the exhaust rusted out, and it’s impossible to find replacement parts. So I just welded up some pipe and ran it to the back of the car, so it’s got no muffler, resonator, or anything to quiet it down. “Okay, but why does it produce that much noise at all? What could that engine possibly be doing to create so much noise?” I paused briefly as a pungent smell began to fill the small space. “Is-is something burning?” Ron coughed. “Whew, yeah, that’s why we don’t use these any more. Step outta the garage, I’ll pull this thing out.” He pulled the door shut and it bounced back open. Shaking his head, he slammed the door shut and it stayed. I walked out into the fresh air and looked back at the strange, rumbling machine. It let out a sharp snarl and began to inch forward. I felt my fur stand on end as it rolled out into the daylight, growling and crackling. Ron reached for something near the instrument panel in front of him and the machine fell silent. “So what were you asking?” “Why is that thing so damn loud?!” “Oh! It runs on gasoline. It combusts gas and air and uses the resulting expanding gas to drive pistons to move the car.” “Explosions. You used explosions to propel your cars.” “I mean, that’s kind of simplifying it but, yes.” “And this is what humans used before electricity. As in, all cars used these engines?” “Yes?” “Is your entire species insane?!” I practically yelled. “I can understand you using explosives for your space ships since those are piloted by trained professionals, but putting explosives in the hands of civilians?! At least you eventually realized how dangerous that was and had the sense to switch to electricity.” I sighed. “I don’t know how you guys have made it this far without blowing yourselves up yet.” Ron scratched the back of his neck sheepishly. “Well, we came close a few times, and we didn’t really switch to electric cars for safety. It was more about reducing pollution, and the fact that gasoline was a finite resource. In fact, early electric cars used lithium ion batteries that, if they ever caught on fire, were extremely hard to put out. They were pretty safe otherwise.” I stared at Ron, dumbfounded as he sat back down in the driver's seat. “Come on, hop in! Let’s take her for a spin.” “No. No no no no no. That thing is a death trap.” I said pointedly. “Is there even any kind of safety equipment in it. Any fire suppression systems?” “Uh, it has seat belts?” He grinned sheepishly. “No, not gonna happen.” “C’mon, you’ll love it!” He said, patting the empty passenger seat. “No.” “C’moooon!” “No.” “You’ll love it!” “No.” “It’ll be fun!” “NO!” Ron recoiled at the sudden shift in my demeanor. I took a breath. “I’m- I’m sorry. I know you’re just trying to help, to find something for us to do besides sit around in your house, and I know I can’t just hide away in there for years while NASA decides if they want to build another ship to get me home, but I…” I started twisting one of my ears in anxiety. “It’s okay buddy.” Ron said gently, leaning out of the car. “Is something wrong? Or has something been bothering you? you can tell me. You keep that shit to yourself and it’s just gonna keep chewing away at you.” I leaned back against the front fender of the car, running my hands over my head. “I’m scared. Everything scares me now. Your planet scares me.” I closed my eyes, taking a deep breath. “The first time I leave my home system, my ship explodes. You guys rescue me from near certain death, and your ship almost explodes. We get going again only to damn near plaster ourselves across the ocean. And Jax…” My words caught in my throat. I stayed silent for a moment, regaining my composure. “And now I’m here on a planet full of insane aliens that seem hell bent on risking life and limb at every available opportunity and I’m at my wits end. I’m bored out of my mind cowering away in your house, but I don’t think my nerves can take going out into your world.” A silence hung heavy in the air, and I briefly wondered if I had inadvertently alienated the person who had risked so much for me, who had invited me to live in his own home. “Let me ask you something.” Ron said, standing up out of the car. “Why did you become an astronaut, specifically a pilot?” “I- well…” “Even in your society, that has to carry risk, right? There’s more danger associated with space travel than say, an accountant, or whatever equivalent you have for an office job, right? And yet, you chose to go to space. Hell, you chose to leave your system. Why is that?” “Because I- uh…” I faltered. “Because a normal life is boring? Because you seek thrill, adventure?” He continued. “And why a pilot? Is it because you can control a machine that lets you do so much more than what’s otherwise possible? That having control of something that can take you anywhere you want is the ultimate freedom?” “Maybe, I guess? I don’t…” I thought back to my youth, looking up in wonder to watch star-like specks of light flit across the night sky. I remembered the hours spent in simulations learning the controls of a spaceship, and the overwhelming thrill and sense of wonderment the first time I strapped myself into the pilot's seat and left the atmosphere. I remembered all those times I got yelled at for not using autopilot… “You know what I think your problem is?” Ron said, scratching his chin. “You’ve been on this crazy roller coaster of an adventure, but you haven’t been in control for a long time. You were at our mercy once you set foot on our ship, and you're at the mercy of my government if you ever get to go home. You haven’t been able to enjoy the ride, because you didn’t even get to choose to get on it.” I reflected on that. How different would my stay on Earth be if I chose to come here. If I had time to prepare. If I had my partner with me. Would I be cowering away inside, waiting for my departure? Or would I be dragging Jax all across this planet every time something caught my eye? “Look, I won’t force you to do anything you don’t want to, but I really think that this,” he patted the old car’s roof affectionately, “might be able to help you break out of this funk you’ve been in. If you’re willing to learn, willing to master it, it will reward you with an experience you just can’t get from anything else today. There’s no traction control, no anti-lock brakes, no speed limiter, no electronic nannies to interfere. Just you, the car, and wherever you want to go, however you want to get there.” He turned to regard me while he closed the engine compartment panel. “Maybe it can give you some semblance of control back in your life.” He climbed back into the old BMW and reached up near the instrument panel again. This time I saw him turn a small, black key behind the wheel in front of him. The car whirred and barked to life immediately this time, crackling as it settled into that low, unnerving growl once again. “You can take the Tesla home if you want, I won’t make you ride in the death trap!” He shouted over the din. I slowly walked around the front of the car. Apprehensively, I placed a hand on the faded maroon fender, feeling it vibrate and shudder with the explosions of gasoline and air. I looked at the sleek, white Tesla, silent, safe, waiting to take me back to Ron’s house where I could hide away from the madness that was this world. No. I was done being scared. Done hiding away, and done wasting the time I'd be spending here. I walked to the passenger side and opened the door. Taking a deep breath to steady my nerves, I lowered myself into the passenger seat. “Atta boy.” Ron said, smiling. “Alright, before we set off, lemme run you through all the controls. We rolled up to Ron’s house as the sun was sinking to the horizon. The sleek white Tesla was already there, sitting atop its inductive charging pad, having driven itself home shortly after our departure. As soon as Ron brought the BMW to a halt, I shoved open the door and practically spilled out onto the ground. “C’mon, it wasn’t that bad.” Ron said, silencing the clattering machine as he climbed out. I simply glared at him from my spot on the ground, ears ringing, willing my heart rate to drop to a safe level before I suffered a heart attack. I mentally reflected on the events of the day, and how Ron could possibly come to the conclusion that it hadn’t been that bad. Our little road trip had started innocently enough, with Ron showing me all the archaic controls and their various functions. Then he insisted I try it myself in the storage unit parking lot. How any species could decide that a vehicle should be controlled with three pedals when they only had two legs was utterly beyond me. But Ron’s explanation made it seem a relatively simple affair, and being licensed to fly the most advanced piece of machinery my people had ever created, I felt I could handle the crude, century old transport I now occupied. I was wrong. It had struck me as predatory and beast like before, with all its growling and shuddering, and it’s shape, all hard edges and straight lines, gave it the appearance of a foul-tempered demeanor. Now I was almost certain it was alive, and extremely pissed off I was at its helm. No matter how gentle I tried to release the ”clutch”, (which was absurdly heavy, seriously, how was this ever considered normal?) the car would buck and protest, either spinning its tires with a piercing shriek or defiantly shutting down while doing its best to send my snout crashing into the steering wheel. Ron did his best to offer clearer instructions, but was struggling to do so through his laughter. Eventually, I was able to get the ornery thing to move reliably, but not without making it bellow and groan, the engine RPMs racing skyward as I slowly slipped the clutch. Once moving, the car became more compliant, but was still a handful. Go too slow, the car bucks and shudders or stalls out. Come to a stop without pressing the clutch or shifting to neutral, the car stalls out. Come to a stop facing uphill? Congratulations, you are now rolling backwards as soon as your foot comes off the brake. Ron had hoped this machine would help me feel like I had some aspect of control over something, anything, in my life. Instead, I felt it was a fight just to get the damn thing to move one foot forward. I was physically and mentally exhausted by the time Ron offered to take the driver’s seat back. With Ron at the wheel, the machine’s demeanor seemed to shift immediately. With minimal drama, he coaxed the car forward, and we glided effortlessly onto the road. He slotted the shifter through the gears and soon, we were cruising along the empty rural road, windows down, the BMW rumbling contentedly. Just as I was beginning to relax, to feel as though maybe, this mechanized insanity wasn’t as threatening or dangerous as I thought, Ron said some words that I hope to never hear again. “Alright, lemme show what this thing can really do.” What followed was a blur of deafening noise, the terrifying sensation of speed, and the feeling that my life would end at the hands of the cackling maniacal human piloting his death trap along nonsensically winding roads. I didn’t even realize when we had slowed down to a more sensible speed. My last clear memory was seeing Ron’s house as we pulled into the driveway. Shakily, I picked myself up off the ground. “Seriously though, are you okay? I didn’t think I'd scare you that bad, I thought you were getting comfortable with the car.” “I was.” I said curtly, brushing off dust from the gravel driveway. “Again, I’m sorry. But I’m my defense, we only got up to like sixty. We’ve gone way faster than that in the Tesla.” He said, pointing a thumb over his shoulder towards it. My eyes narrowed at that. “There’s no way we weren’t going faster.” Ron shrugged. “It’s a raw car. It doesn’t insulate you from the road. It’s meant to make driving fun.” “Your definition of fun is very different from mine.” I followed Ron into the house, falling unceremoniously onto a couch. Ron sat in the recliner along the wall, a thoughtful look on his face as he stared off out of the living room window. “You know, the first time we took the Sacagawea out on an FTL test run, I don’t think I could honestly tell you how it felt.” My ears perked as I looked towards the contemplative human. “Me, Jack, Glenn, we were all so busy watching the data, checking parameters, looking for anything that might indicate the ship was gonna tear itself apart or explode or something, that I don’t think anyone actually experienced the whole thing.” Ron paused for a moment. “I could probably recite exactly what the drive core temperatures were, our location, relative velocity, all that. But I don’t think I could tell you what the sensations of that first flight were, outside of anxiety, trepidation, and most of all, fear.” He shook his head, smiling. “It wasn’t until our fourth or fifth test flight that I realized the literal tons of FTL shit we bolted to what was originally an oversized cargo shuttle made it about as responsive as an apartment building in a mudslide, and that the most sensational part of FTL flight was the utter lack of sensation at all.” Ron turned his gaze towards me. “The point I’m getting at is that the first time you try something, it can be overwhelming. You’re so bombarded with everything that’s happening, you don’t actually get the chance to process what’s going on. So if you want, and when you’re ready, we can go out and try again.” He shrugged. “If not, that’s fine, but I’m getting you out of this house. You’re stuck here on Earth for a while, and I’ll be damned if you leave without ever actually experiencing your time here.” He stood and stretched. “Anyway, it’s late, and I don’t feel like making dinner. Pizza alright with you?” “Yeah…” I nodded absently, staring out the window at the rolling fields bathed in the golden glow of dusk. At the predatory shape of that car silhouetted against the setting sun. That night my thoughts swirled around me as I laid in bed. Eight to ten years. That was the estimate the scientists at NASA had given me for how long it would take them to synthesize enough exotic matter for a trip to Cygaria. That was how long it would be before I could go home, if they even decided to let me leave. That was still not officially decided. Just one more thing up in the air. Beyond my control. I sighed and rolled on to my side. The more I thought about it, the more convinced I was that Ron was right. I’d just been along for the ride in everything that happened since my ship exploded, and I had just shut down. I locked myself away in his house where nothing crazy happened and life couldn’t throw anymore surprises my way. I didn’t want to hide away anymore, I was tired of being afraid, tired of the feeling of helplessness in my current situation. However, the thought of going out doing anything on this insanity-inducing planet brought forth feelings of anxiety and apprehension. Something had to change, but change was hard. My troubled thoughts followed me as I finally drifted off to sleep. Heavy. Everything was heavy. I tried to lift my head. A sharp pain lanced down my back and shoulders. I sucked in a breath of air and tried again. Slowly, I was able to look up and take in my surroundings. The bridge was dim, and all the consoles were dead. The three humans were slumped in their seats. I began to feel light headed and let my head drop again. More pain. I could feel the Sac swaying gently below me, hear the sounds of water lapping against the ship and boiling away. We had made it. We survived. Glenn groaned, then called out across the bridge. “Is everyone alive?” “I am in one piece.” “Ugh, gravity’s a mean bitch.” “I’m alive. My neck feels like someone tried to rip it from my body.” I said through gritted teeth, struggling to lift my head once again. “Try not to move. You probably only have whiplash, but it could be something worse. Moving too much could cause more damage.” I could hear Glenn straining as he reached for the radio controls. He pushed a couple of buttons, but nothing happened. “Shit, powers completely dead. Looks like we’re waiting in the dark. No way to check on our pick up.” I looked over at the display that showed the medbay camera feed. My heart dropped. It was blank. I began fumbling with my restraints. “Woah, Ren! What are you doing.” Ron called out, pulling at his own harness buckle. “I need to check on Jax!” I gasped. I could only imagine what damage the violent landing had done to him in his fragile state. The sudden reintroduction to gravity was wreaking havoc on my body. My arms felt stiff and unresponsive. I managed to unclasp my harness and throw it off. “Ren wait! Help will be here soon!” Ron shouted. “There’s nothing you can do right now, you’re only going to hurt yourself!” I didn’t care. I needed to make sure he was okay. I wrenched myself out of the chair and collapsed onto the floor. Searing hot pain shot up my back and into my head. I tried to raise an arm, to drag myself forwards. I couldn’t. Everything hurt. My limbs felt like they were made of lead. I dropped my head against the hard metal floor and yelled in frustration. In anger. My yelling faded into pitiful sobs. I was helpless. If Jax was dying in that medbay, there wasn’t a damned thing I could do. I couldn’t even be there for him. So I lay on the floor instead, sniffling like some lost child. I felt a familiar weight on my back and turned my head. Ron was on all fours, breathing heavily, one hand on my back. That strange human gesture of comfort. It helped. “Ren, easy,” he said between gasps. “We’ve made it...this far man. Jax...has made it this far. He’s sick...but he’s tough. He’ll get through this. We’ll...get through this. Help is coming...soon. We’ll be alright.” I took a shaky breath. “Okay. You’re- you’re right.” Jax would be fine. He had to be fine. Ron eased himself down and joined me on the floor. “No way in hell I'm gonna be able to stand back up. Hope you don’t mind if I join you.” I slowly, painfully, rolled over into my back, hissing in pain. “I don’t mind.” I gasped. “Bet you don’t have to deal with reacclimating to gravity, huh?” “No, having onboard gravity prevents that.” “Hmm, must be nice.” “Yeah, it is.” All four of us remained silent, listening to the gentle lapping of waves as the Sac bobbed gently on the ocean. I awoke with a start, the feelings of panic and helplessness still seared in my mind. It was still pitch black in my room, and the stars shone clearly through the bedroom window. A quick glance at the clock told me it was early. Real early. 1:32am. I sat up in bed, rubbing my eyes. Every night. Every single night I dreamt of my arrival here. Everytime I closed my eyes I would relive the trauma, the vulnerability I’d felt immediately after splash down. It was draining. Sleep thoroughly out of the equation for the next few hours, I grabbed a light cloth “hoodie” and made my way downstairs as I had many times when my nightmares woke me. As I grabbed the handle to the front door, I noticed the keys to the BMW hanging from the wall next to the Tesla fob. Hesitantly, I picked up the small, metal keys and stepped outside. The night was crisp and clear, without a cloud in the sky to impede my view of the alien nightscape. Unfamiliar stars and a ludicrously large moon were a stark reminder of my current situation, but there was a comforting beauty to them. I sat down on the porch steps, letting the cool night breeze wash over me as I stared out into the stellar sea above me. The stars had always held a certain power over me. I could feel that familiar tug, that longing for something more that pushed me to be a pilot in the first place. That drive that steeled my nerves and pushed me towards adventure. My gaze shifted down to the moonlit hills and trees that surrounded me, then to the angular shape of the BMW sitting in the driveway before me. Maybe it was sleep deprivation, or maybe it was desperation to begin feeling like myself again, but I found myself walking to the driver‘s door of the car. I slid the small, fragile feeling key into the slot next to the handle. The door unlocked with a thunk and I pulled it open. Sliding into the seat, I shut the door and gripped the wheel, apprehension welling up inside me. Slotting the key in the ignition, I held my breath and turned it. The car barked to life, settling into that deep growling idle. I closed my eyes, feeling the car rumble around me. For a moment, I was back on the Sacagawea, strapped in a chair, feeling the ship rumble through the atmosphere, gripped in panic and helplessness. I wrenched my eyes open and reached for a switch on the ceiling. The car’s ancient sunroof squealed in protest as it opened, revealing the night sky. I stared up at them again, steeling my nerves and strengthening my resolve. Like it or not, this planet was now my mission, my adventure, and this crummy, ancient, rolling health hazard of a car was gonna be my ship. I was a pilot damnit, if I could hop into a spacecraft and fly out to another star system, then I could absolutely conquer driving a vehicle humans used to get groceries a century ago. continued in comments
2020.09.04 05:30 damn_introvert34Serious discussion about the state of this subreddit
I habe been on this sub for about 2 months now and everytime I open the subreddit, there's a guaranteed waifu post. Now I don't mind waifu post, but when every post is a waifu post, there's a problem. It's disrespectful to Atlus who make such beautiful games with wonderful gameplay and excellent story and all everyone talks about is waifus. I know softcore content is allowed, but I think this post is going too far. Why can't we talk about some persona builds, lore/themes of the games instead of '"Makoto is best girl" and when someone states they like another girl, the op will be like "u SpElT mAkoTo wroNg". This is a jrpg, the player can choose whoever they like, that is the purpose of the game. This video sums it up pretty nicely. People who want to play games for the 1st time are met with toxic replies if they don't like someone's waifu. I am tired of this shit. Why don't we stop the waifu wars and talk about the game is so wonderful. The mods, if u are reading this, please amke another sub for this waifu posts or atleast have a specific day of the week when only waifu stuff will be posted, call it it waifu wednesday or something. And someone experienced at the game should make posts explaining the various meachanics of the game like persona lockdown and stuff for beginners like me. Sorry for ranting, but I am really tired of this waifu shit
Robert had 16 bastards according to Maggy the Frog's prophecy
Anger flashed across the child's face. "If she tries I will have my brother kill her." Even then she would not stop, willful child as she was. She still had one more question due her, one more glimpse into her life to come. "Will the king and I have children?" she asked. "Oh, aye. Six-and-ten for him, and three for you." That made no sense to Cersei. Her thumb was throbbing where she'd cut it, and her blood was dripping on the carpet. How could that be? she wanted to ask, but she was done with her questions. -AFFC, Cersei VIII
Varys knows of 8 of these 16
"He fathered eight, to the best of my knowing," Varys said as he wrestled with the saddle. "Their mothers were copper and honey, chestnut and butter, yet the babes were all black as ravens . . . and as ill-omened, it would seem. So when Joffrey, Myrcella, and Tommen slid out between your sister's thighs, each as golden as the sun, the truth was not hard to glimpse." -ACOK, Tyrion III
The Reader's Knowledge
So far the reader has encountered/heard about 7 of the bastards. Gendry
The master called over a tall lad about Robb's age, his arms and chest corded with muscle. "This is Lord Stark, the new Hand of the King," he told him as the boy looked at Ned through sullen blue eyes and pushed back sweat-soaked hair with his fingers. Thick hair, shaggy and unkempt and black as ink. The shadow of a new beard darkened his jaw. "This is Gendry. Strong for his age, and he works hard. Show the Hand that helmet you made, lad." Almost shyly, the boy led them to his bench, and a steel helm shaped like a bull's head, with two great curving horns. -AGOT, Eddard VI
The girl had been so young Ned had not dared to ask her age. No doubt she'd been a virgin; the better brothels could always find a virgin, if the purse was fat enough. She had light red hair and a powdering of freckles across the bridge of her nose, and when she slipped free a breast to give her nipple to the babe, he saw that her bosom was freckled as well. "I named her Barra," she said as the child nursed. "She looks so like him, does she not, milord? She has his nose, and his hair …" "She does." Eddard Stark had touched the baby's fine, dark hair. It flowed through his fingers like black silk. Robert's firstborn had had the same fine hair, he seemed to recall. -AGOT, Eddard IX
Ned remembered Robert's first child as well, a daughter born in the Vale when Robert was scarcely more than a boy himself. A sweet little girl; the young lord of Storm's End had doted on her. He used to make daily visits to play with the babe, long after he had lost interest in the mother. Ned was often dragged along for company, whether he willed it or not. The girl would be seventeen or eighteen now, he realized; older than Robert had been when he fathered her. A strange thought. -AGOT, Eddard VII
When Alayne returned to the winch room, she found Mya Stone waiting impatiently with Lothor Brune and Mord. She must have come up in the bucket to see what was taking us so long. Slim and sinewy, Mya looked as tough as the old riding leathers she wore beneath her silvery ringmail shirt. Her hair was black as a raven's wing, so short and shaggy that Alayne suspected that she cut it with a dagger. Mya's eyes were her best feature, big and blue. She could be pretty, if she would dress up like a girl. Alayne found herself wondering whether Ser Lothor liked her best in her iron and leather, or dreamed of her gowned in lace and silk. Mya liked to say that her father had been a goat and her mother an owl, but Alayne had gotten the true story from Maddy. Yes, she thought, looking at her now, those are his eyes, and she has his hair too, the thick black hair he shared with Renly. -AFFC, Alayne II
"There's proof of a sort at Storm's End. Robert's bastard. The one he fathered on my wedding night, in the very bed they'd made up for me and my bride. Delena was a Florent, and a maiden when he took her, so Robert acknowledged the babe. Edric Storm, they call him. He is said to be the very image of my brother. If men were to see him, and then look again at Joffrey and Tommen, they could not help but wonder, I would think." -ACOK, Davos I
"Of course you are." Davos had known that almost at once. The lad had the prominent ears of a Florent, but the hair, the eyes, the jaw, the cheekbones, those were all Baratheon. -ASOS, Davos II
Bella Some might argued its not confirmed. Its close enough imo.
"Well, I might be." When the girl shrugged, her gown slipped off one shoulder. "They say King Robert fucked my mother when he hid here, back before the battle. Not that he didn't have all the other girls too, but Leslyn says he liked my ma the best." The girl did have hair like the old king's, Arya thought; a great thick mop of it, as black as coal. That doesn't mean anything, though. Gendry has the same kind of hair too. Lots of people have black hair. "I'm named Bella," the girl told Gendry. "For the battle. I bet I could ring your bell, too. You want to?" -ASOS, Arya V
Twins at Casterly Rock
"Does it matter? If you bed enough women, some will give you presents, and His Grace has never been shy on that count. I know he's acknowledged that boy at Storm's End, the one he fathered the night Lord Stannis wed. He could hardly do otherwise. The mother was a Florent, niece to the Lady Selyse, one of her bedmaids. Renly says that Robert carried the girl upstairs during the feast, and broke in the wedding bed while Stannis and his bride were still dancing. Lord Stannis seemed to think that was a blot on the honor of his wife's House, so when the boy was born, he shipped him off to Renly." He gave Ned a sideways glance. "I've also heard whispers that Robert got a pair of twins on a serving wench at Casterly Rock, three years ago when he went west for Lord Tywin's tourney. Cersei had the babes killed, and sold the mother to a passing slaver. Too much an affront to Lannister pride, that close to home." -AGOT, Eddard IX
While it can't be 100% confirmed that 7 the reader knows about that Varys knows about as well, but I think that all of them are quite likely options for Varys to know about. But the question is raised, who else does Varys know about? Back in that original post of mine some of the following ideas were mentioned:
Taena Merryweather's son Russell (Her husband seems uninterested in her and she seems to not want to bring him around Cersei and its also possible she slept with robert to get her husband's lands back)
The horn-of-plenty Hand. Jaime remembered Owen Merryweather well enough; an amiable man, but ineffectual. "As I recall, he did so well that Aerys exiled him and seized his lands." "Robert gave them back. Some, at least. Taena would be pleased if Orton could recover the rest."
But it was no good. She could not feel it, whatever Robert felt on the nights he took her. There was no pleasure in it, not for her. For Taena, yes. Her nipples were two black diamonds, her sex slick and steamy. Robert would have loved you, for an hour. The queen slid a finger into that Myrish swamp, then another, moving them in and out, but once he spent himself inside you, he would have been hard-pressed to recall your name.
Not so Orton Merryweather, whose round face remained blotched and pale from broth to cheese. He drank heavily and kept stealing glances at the singer.
Of late she had shared the queen's bed more often than Lord Merryweather's. Orton did not seem to mind . . . or if he did, he knew better than to say so. "Robert gave them back. Some, at least. Taena would be pleased if Orton could recover the rest."
Bastard via his cousin on Greenstone aka Greenshit
There had been a female cousin too, a chunky little widow with breasts as big as melons whose husband and father had both died at Storm's End during the siege. "Her father was good to me," Robert told her, "and she and I would play together when the two of us were small." It did not take him long to start playing with her again. As soon as Cersei closed her eyes, the king would steal off to console the poor lonely creature. One night she had Jaime follow him, to confirm her suspicions. When her brother returned he asked her if she wanted Robert dead. "No," she had replied, "I want him horned." She liked to think that was the night when Joffrey was conceived. -AFFC, Cersei V
The Wall (Characters such as Satin/Grenn)
Since this post I've came across/come up with the following: Grenn is a Possible Bastard of Robert Baratheon (not a very serious theory but some of the parallels are super cool, but Grenn's beard is described as brown at one point so that probably disqualifies him) Satin Satin has dark eyes:
The boy claimed to be eighteen, older than Jon, but he was green as summer grass for all that. Satin, they called him, even in the wool and mail and boiled leather of the Night's Watch; the name he'd gotten in the brothel where he'd been born and raised. He was pretty as a girl with his dark eyes, soft skin, and raven's ringlets. Half a year at Castle Black had toughened up his hands, however, and Noye said he was passable with a crossbow. Whether he had the courage to face what was coming, though .
Greenstone/Estermont has fallen to fAegon and the Golden Company and they have taken hostages If Robert had a bastard with his cousin on Estermont (and she had the child), we have a possible chance to see him in the Jon Con/Arianne chapers.
Later that day, garbed and gloved once more, Connington made an inspection of the castle and sent word to Homeless Harry Strickland and his captains to join him for a war council. Nine of them assembled in the solar: Connington and Strickland, Haldon Halfmaester, Black Balaq, Ser Franklyn Flowers, Malo Jayn, Ser Brendel Byrne, Dick Cole, and Lymond Pease. The Halfmaester had good tidings. "Word's reached the camp from Marq Mandrake. The Volantenes put him ashore on what turned out to be Estermont, with close to five hundred men. He's taken Greenstone." "I expect they did," said Jon Connington, "but what messages would they have carried? At best, some garbled account of raiders from the sea." Even before they had sailed from Volon Therys, he had instructed his captains to show no banners during these first attacks—not Prince Aegon's three-headed dragon, nor his own griffins, nor the skulls and golden battle standards of the company. Let the Lannisters suspect Stannis Baratheon, pirates from the Stepstones, outlaws out of the woods, or whoever else they cared to blame. If the reports that reached King's Landing were confused and contradictory, so much the better. The slower the Iron Throne was to react, the longer they would have to gather their strength and bring allies to the cause. There should be ships on Estermont. It is an island. Haldon, send word to Mandrake to leave a garrison behind and bring the rest of his men over to Cape Wrath, along with any noble captives." "As you command, my lord. House Estermont has blood ties to both kings, as it happens. Good hostages." "Good ransoms," said Homeless Harry, happily. -ADWD, The Griffin Reborn
So in the upcoming TWOW Jon Connington/Arianne chapters we could see a captive who looks like Robert it would be interesting. Especially since it was with his cousin. Since this child would likely have been conceived around the same time as Joffrey (unless he made return trips), this child would be around 14 years old right now. Let me know any thoughts you may have on the above or any additional characters. Keep in mind that every one of them has dark hair:
Varys said as he wrestled with the saddle. "Their mothers were copper and honey, chestnut and butter, yet the babes were all black as ravens . . . -ACOK, Tyrion III
And every one except Bella is confirmed to have blue eyes by the main text (the semi-canon app does confirm I believe). It helps somewhat when looking to start with trips Robert made during different time periods (for instance celebrating the victory on Pyke, etc.) TLDR: A few extra notes on Robert Baratheon's children. The Golden Company is taking hostages in a potential location of one them and we could see one even if it has no ties to the plot.
This List(2) [Link to list(1), here] - [Link to list(3), here] 1203 "Not fighting." "What kind of person am I?" "This weakling?" "Hehe, not worthy of me making a move." "In the future, when my biography is written, my first battle after seclusion is against Heavenly Lord Bai Zu, but the second battle is with this thing? There won't be any splendor even if I win against such a minor character of Ye Lui tribe." "Elder Liu Guan Yi, if you truly have skills, go kill him!" That Gu Immortal of Bai Zu tribe sneered. Fang Yuan lightly shook his head, boasting shamelessly: "How can you comprehend my power? That's why you will never have the hope of becoming an expert like me." How could they have known Fang Yuan to speak: "Look, he is indeed afraid of me, even if I didn't." 1207 What blood battle martial competition, I don't give a f*ck! Screw off. In any case, Fang Yuan's agreement with Chu Sect was extremely loose. Besides some fundamental interests and principles, even if he suddenly did not want to do a task, or his interest waned, or he betrayed the sect, or he voluntarily left Chu Sect, he would receive no backlash. 1207 Fang Yuan's only worry was that the world wouldn't be chaotic, sinister and dangerous thoughts started to rise up in his mind. 1223 When he saw Fang Yuan, he immediately lowered himself and stuck to Fang Yuan like a fly. Whatever he was asked, he answered to the best of his abilities. If Fang Yuan wanted to kick his butt, he would definitely move his butt over to Fang Yuan's leg so that he could kick it more conveniently. 1224 Right now, she was pure yet wild, she was cute and embarrassed. Especially with her subservient attitude, when men see her, they would feel something emerging in their crotches, they would want to hug her tightly and give her some well deserved love. 1240 Bai Ning Bing snorted, transmitting: "I would like him to come here. I want to cooperate with him, even if I have to give up this Bai Xiang grotto-heaven, so be it." 1279 Fang Yuan could not break free for a period of time. In this urgent situation, he exclaimed: "Old Bai, do you still remember Imperial Court blessed land?" Tai Bai Yun Sheng was stunned, he exposed a flaw. Fang Yuan's eyes shined with a ruthless light, his fingers pierced into Tai Bai Yun Sheng's eyes without mercy. Tai Bai Yun Sheng was heavily injured, blood was pouring out of his eyes. Fang Yuan used this chance to unleash the finishing blow as Tai Bai Yun Sheng stopped moving entirely. He was dead. "Hmph!" Fang Yuan shrugged off Tai Bai Yun Sheng's corpse as he continued to swim, chasing after Ying Wu Xie. 1280 Fang Yuan was expressionless, he stared ahead at Ying Wu Xie: "Such a close relationship, that rank eight miniman Gu Immortal who went crazy must be a member of Shadow Sect. I must kill him, I must eliminate them all! Inside Reverse Flow River, it is the best opportunity for me to eliminate these threats once and for all!" 1284 "I did not exert any strength. Oh wait, Ma Hong Yun died of exhaustion! He carried Zhao Lian Yun as they traveled in the river, he was completely overexerting himself, surpassing his limits. Eventually, not only was he out of stamina, he was also drained of mental energy. After I caught him, his body relaxed and he died immediately." "Ma Hong Yun actually died?! Never mind, I still have Zhao Lian Yun." Fang Yuan held in his shock. 1285 I had once screamed, gradually, I lost my voice. I had once cried, gradually, I lost my tears. I had once grieved, gradually, I became able to withstand everything. I had once rejoiced, gradually, I became unmoved by the world. And now! All I have left is an expressionless face, my gaze is as tough as a monolith, only perseverance remains in my heart. This is my own, an insignificant character, Fang Yuan's — Perseverance! 1317 "This is truly a pity. No matter how beautiful you are, without eternal life, you will just be a pile of bones in the end." "Beauty is superficial, but people cannot stop indulging in it." "But this Fairy Tian Lu is indeed Qiao Si Liu's best friend, their coordination is remarkable." "What is this guy's origin? I have many Immortal Gu, if I could obtain his food path inheritance, it might be a huge help to me." Fang Yuan immediately had malicious intent. Even if you had no intention to harm others, they might still want to harm you. Fang Yuan was somewhat moved. 1317 Unfortunately, due to a lack of fortuitous encounters, he could do nothing about it. Since there were no fortuitous encounters, then he had to make a move himself and rob others. Fang Yuan did not have any feeling of guilt! 1317 Many Gu Immortals were particular about not attacking others if others did not attack them. However, Fang Yuan was someone who, even if others did not attack him, would go attack them. 1332 "Qiao Si Liu is seeking to be with me, this is not her personal wish, but the political desire of Qiao clan." "And with just this, I am already ahead of all her suitors." "No matter how many times I fail, no matter how many women I go after, no matter how weak I am, even if I make a scene like during the moon festival, so what?" "I am already victorious!" "In fact, even if I go after another woman instead of Qiao Si Liu, she will turn around and pursue me instead." "Of course, this is not love, this is… politics!" 1332 Actually, there was far more. A woman's beauty was her natural dowry. This dowry was extremely valuable, it was a huge amount of wealth. Who would not want such wealth? But not everyone could protect this wealth. If a beauty was willing to give this wealth to her partner out of pure love, then this lucky person should treat her well. But the truth was, such situations were too few. If it happened, treasure it, if it didn't, don't bank on it. This was not 'unseemly'. This was — reality. 1360 "Lingering split soul of Spectral Soul, hmph, I will kill him. Fairy Zi Wei, go deal with that super Gu formation and kill Fang Yuan. The others will control Heaven Overseeing Tower and leave this place. Zuo Ye Hui will surely follow, I do not need success, I just do not want failure." Duke Long ordered, as everyone responded. 1360 "Fang Yuan, you were an otherworldly demon chosen by heaven's will and tasked to save the people of this world. Even though you destroyed Shadow Sect's heaven defying plan, you took a wrong step and betrayed the righteous path, entering the demonic path and becoming enemies with the world. If you admit your mistake now and surrender, I will leave you with a complete corpse, I will make a biography for you after death so that your name will go down in history as a lesson for the future." 1366 "Fang Yuan, I need to thank you. Purple Mountain True Monarch is a great title, thanks for bestowing it, I like it." 1368 "In this battle, I am bullying a junior, if you were not someone who is defying fate, we might be able to sit down and have a nice conversation. After all, in this world, there are too few people who can register my interest." "However, I believe that in the near future, the entire world will brighten up, it will become incredibly exciting." "And I will be the person to unveil this great new era!" 1369 "The great era is coming, antiques like myself should quietly lie down and stop trying to become the main characters of the current era. Oh Spectral Soul, your era is long gone." 1370 "Demonic path members are truly insidious and greedy beyond hope. Even before death, you are still scamming others. Oh Fang Yuan, your crimes are too severe, you will die today without doubt! Forget about running away, because with me around, you have no hope of escaping." At this time, Fairy Zi Wei's voice resounded from the super Gu formation. 1370 Right when Fang Yuan was working hard on this goal, he received Purple Mountain True Monarch's words: "Fang Yuan, can we continue to cooperate?" Fang Yuan's interest was roused: "Of course." "Hehehe, very good, I was not wrong about you!" "I will entrust everything to you. My Immortal Gu, my killer moves, my experiences… and you will not need to bear any responsibility or task." "Ying Wu Xie, Hei Lou Lan, White Rabbit, Miao Yin and Sixth Hair, they will all be your subordinates!" "From now onwards, you will be the leader of Shadow Sect!" 1371 "The great era is coming, Fang Yuan!" "Heavenly Court wants to be the leader of the five regions and rule all of humanity." "Heavenly Court will not let you off, because you are not Zhao Lian Yun, you are a complete otherworldly demon, you have the sovereign immortal aperture as well as the luck path true inheritance." "You do not belong to this world, you are a defier of fate, a source of chaos, the biggest uncertainty in heaven and earth." "You are the target of Heavenly Court's extermination, if you do not get rid of Heavenly Court, they will eradicate you!" "My Shadow Sect had once wanted to defy the way of heaven and become a venerable again. But Heavenly Court was our greatest obstacle, even though we lost, I would rather pass you everything than give them to our enemies. Hahaha." 1371 Purple Mountain True Monarch chuckled: "Haven't you noticed this flaw? It is not hard to guess, the answer is food. Your sovereign immortal body was not created by human reproduction, even though it has flesh and blood, the origin is different. The essence of a rank nine Immortal Gu remains. Since it is like a rank nine Immortal Gu, it definitely needs to be fed!" 1372 "Go ahead and wreak havoc in this world, Fang Yuan!!" 1393 "What a handsome person!" "Seeing his demeanor, he seems to be a righteous path Gu Immortal." Just as Three Feather Boy was guessing, Fang Yuan looked at him and squinted, having some joy in his tone: "Good, this is the third person I've met, after eating you, my appetite will be appeased for some time." "What?!" Three Feather Boy was shocked, he quickly retreated: "What righteous path is this! He wants to eat me? Sister, save me!" 1395 Even if heaven's will plotted, so what? As long as Fang Yuan was strong enough, no matter who was instigated, their survival instincts would take over at the crucial moment. 1434 Right at this time, Spectral Soul's will called out in the stone lotus island: "Not good, the stone lotus island cannot endure this burden. If we insist on killing Lord Huang Shi, this stone lotus island's foundation will be used up. If we let go of Huang Shi, it can still last for a few years." "Kill him." Fang Yuan's gaze shined eerily as he spat out these two words without any hesitation. 1442 Feng Jiu Ge explained: "In an Immortal Venerable's or Demon Venerable's cultivation journey, they would always have a Dao Guardian. Every Dao Guardian plays an important role in the development of the venerable." 1464 Fang Yuan raised his head as he smiled: "Not just anyone can become my wife, Fang Yuan's wife. Even though the snowmen recommended you, your qualifications will depend on my test." "Test?" Xue Er gritted her teeth: "Please explain to me, Lord Fang Yuan." Fang Yuan said: "Go to Tai Qiu and collect souls for me. When you leave, someone will arrange it for you." 1464 "Sister Lou Lan, you are amazing!" Xue Er looked at Hei Lou Lan with an incredulous gaze. Hei Lou Lan shook her head: "This is nothing." "No, no, you are really amazing. You have rank six Gu Immortal cultivation level but rank seven battle strength. This is not achievable by normal Gu Immortals." Xue Er waved her hands. Hei Lou Lan smiled bitterly: "This is really nothing, in Shadow Sect, I am very ordinary." Xue Er heard Hei Lou Lan's reply and her heart jumped. Hei Lou Lan: "When you see them, you will understand. Let's go." 1464 Xue Er thought: "Why is Fang Yuan surrounded by so many beauties? And they are such talented people! Now wonder he thinks little of me." 1472 You Chan was drinking tea, while Fang Yuan drank wine. He was not drinking ordinary wine, this was engagement wine. And this engagement wine was not anyone else's but his own! "Congratulations Lord Fang Yuan and Fairy Xue Er, it is truly wonderful that both of you lovers could get together. Hahaha!" Bing Zhuo laughed loudly as he spoke and toasted. Fang Yuan smiled and raised his cup in response, he looked around the place. 1481 Fang Yuan was a little gloomy, the wisdom Gu in > was extremely intelligent, it even scammed Ren Zu several times, why was it so stupid here? It did not show the intelligence of wisdom Gu at all. Was this because > was a story, or was there any other reason? 1486 "Fang Yuan, you are a reputed person with rank eight battle strength, you actually sneak attacked!" At the other side, You Chan shouted with deep anger in her. Fang Yuan had such an advantage but he still sneak attacked, he was truly too shameless, he did not have the disposition of an expert, he was too shameless! 1520 Fang Yuan smiled: "Of course, let's settle the scores first. Firstly, even if I do nothing and watch, keeping confidential is already a form of contribution to Fang clan, you need to compensate me for that. Secondly, I saved Fang Yun and Fang Leng, even though I did that on a whim, I undoubtedly helped you in this plan to get Divine Bean Palace. Earlier, I did not want any rewards, but now, I do. Furthermore, I was attacked and helped to defend Fallen Flower Hall, fighting against such strong enemies in a dangerous fight, I need compensation for that too. And finally, even after my efforts, a member of your Fang clan accused me and slandered my goodwill, my mood has been ruined, I also need to be compensated for that." 1534 Next, everyone saw a figure flying in the sky, moving like a sword piercing the air. All of the white clouds in the sky were cut into two by this figure. "It seems like a person?" "Immortal?!" The Gu Masters were shocked. "Who is it?" "This aura, it is not an ordinary immortal…" The Gu Immortals were alerted and felt great surprise. The figure stopped in the air as everyone saw this Gu Immortal's true appearance. Only to see that his complexion was as clear as jade, his nose was tall and his black eyes were shining with cold light. He had long hair that resembled a waterfall, hanging straight down to his waist. He wore a white robe that fluttered in the wind, he was handsome to the point of looking like a peerless beauty, his dominating aura was extremely intense. All of the mortal Gu Masters looked up towards him. In pure silence. Before they heard him speak in a plain tone: "My bird, so you are here." 1535 At this moment, tears emerged in her eyes, she confirmed that this was love! Love was absurd, there was no logic in it. Trying to find an answer for love was stupid and foolish. 1536 But at the next moment, Tie Ruo Nan's heroic eyes stared widely. Tie Mian Shen sighed as he said: "Oh Fang Yuan, you rampaged unhindered over the five regions, you are renowned in the world, I am not your match. But even if I die, I will fight, this is the resolution of my Tie clan!" "But I have something to say, we are both immortals, we should not implicate these mortals. Why don't we let these mortals leave first, we can have a good fight, even if I die, I will have no regrets." "What, what did he say? Lord Tie Mian Shen admitted he could not match Fang Yuan? How, how could this be?" Tie Ruo Nan was tongue-tied, this shocking news almost destroyed her entire mental state. 1536 Fang Yuan's fame resounded in the world, his demonic might was a deterrence to the entire world! Even someone like Wu Yong was toyed around by him, and Heavenly Court could not even catch him after such a long time. These were merely rank six Gu Immortals, it was normal to feel this. 1538 "Enough, I will not be enemies with brother Hei Tu, even if he kills me." Shang Xin Ci shook her head with firm determination. 1543 Feng Jiu Ge smiled coldly: "My righteous path is the righteous path of humans, not variant humans. Since when did you variant humans consider yourselves equal to us humans?" 1545 The pain of separation, the sadness of separation, the gloominess of separation, and the reluctance of separation. Splitting up with your lover, never seeing your friends again, and the death of your loved ones. Separated, but the past remains the same. Separated, as old friends bid farewell. Separated, like the setting of the sun. Separated, like falling flowers that convey deep sadness. "I'll separate your mother!!" Suddenly, Lang Ya land spirit screamed in a thunderous tone, resounding in the entire blessed land. 1579 Feng Jiu Ge was pale as paper, he had sustained severe injuries but he spit out some blood: "Cough, you can try. I'm not afraid to let you know, fate armor Immortal Gu's effect is defense, its power varies but it only follows the results dictated by fate. If I am not meant to die now, fate armor Immortal Gu can protect me from any killer move in this world. If I am fated to die already, then Fate Armor's protection will be as weak as paper." 1588 "Heavenly Court is the Heavenly Court of humanity! Fang Yuan, you are extremely talented, you managed to roam freely as a rank seven and evade Heavenly Court's pursuit for so long, it shows your qualification to join us. I can swear on my life, after joining Heavenly Court, not only would you preserve your life, you would be able to cultivate and continue being a free Gu Immortal." Thunder Ghost True Monarch said. 1592 Fang Yuan's appearance was very shocking to the Southern Border righteous path Gu Immortals now! In the past, Fang Yuan disguised as Wu Yi Hai and obtained great benefits in the battle of the dream realm, becoming the leader of Shadow Sect, eventually he was chased down by Southern Border's righteous path, but he was able to escape. Heavenly Court's pursuit could not do anything to Fang Yuan. Months ago, Fang Yuan suddenly appeared in Southern Border and killed two Gu Immortals from Hou clan and Shang clan, if not for Paradise Earth's inheritor, even Tie Mian Shen would have died. Afterwards, Heavenly Court sent out the rank eight Gu Immortal expert Thunder Ghost True Monarch, the process of the battle was unknown but Fang Yuan managed to take away three of her rib bones, the scene of her getting beaten up was displayed in treasure yellow heaven. Instantly, the world was shaken, Fang Yuan's reputation completely suppressed Feng Jiu Ge as the number one rank seven expert! Most Gu Immortals realized that even though Fang Yuan only had rank seven cultivation level, he was a unique individual on par with and should be treated as a rank eight Gu Immortal. Furthermore, Fang Yuan was an otherworldly demon who was reborn using Spring Autumn Cicada, he was vicious and devious, many people despised his nonexistent bottom line, even as a Gu Immortal, he attacked mortals. And now, Fang Yuan was the most dazzling and rapidly rising demonic path overlord! 1594 Yao clan's first supreme elder sighed: "Fang Yuan needs to be dealt with, but he is not an ordinary demonic path Gu Immortal. His identity is very complex, he not only is an otherworldly demon, he also has Spring Autumn Cicada and has returned from the future, he destroyed Eighty-Eight True Yang Building and has Giant Sun's true inheritance, he also inherited Spectral Soul true inheritance and became the leader of Shadow Sect, as well as the funding of Lang Ya blessed land. Even with Central Continent Heavenly Court's pursuit, he still remains scot-free, he continued to harm the world while getting stronger at a rapid rate, far beyond logic. To speak the truth, he has the demeanor of a Demon Venerable in his youth." 1606 It was definitely going to be a fun time ahead. Not only was he going to extort immortal essence stones, Fang Yuan was going to extort large amounts of resources to raise and feed his newly obtained Immortal Gu. Without cultivation resources, how could he get stronger? Get stronger my ass! There was a good saying — Kill and rob to earn wealth. Killing, extorting, pillaging and burning were the hallmarks of the demonic path! 1619 Fate Gu laughed loudly: "Life and death is decreed by fate, prosperity is up to heaven. Human, you are fated to be poor and menial, tormented and humiliated till you become insane, and in the end, you will also die. Although you refined wealth Gu, you don't have the fate to enjoy it. If you are fated to be poor, even if you dug out gold, it will turn to copper, if you are fated to be rich, even if you pick up paper, it will turn to silk. All these things are under my control." 1619 A million years ago. "Do you believe in fate?" Duke Long was standing and looking at his disciple warmly. His disciple was only a youngster with a glossy forehead, handsome appearance and bright eyes. He had long black hair that reached his waist, there was a lifelike red lotus birthmark on his forehead. Duke Long continued: "Red Lotus, you are the future Immortal Venerable, you will definitely lead us humans towards the greatest prosperity and glory. You will certainly succeed, creating your own Gu worms and techniques, you will become the pride of your parents, become invincible in the world, and your name shall be marked in history. You will join Heavenly Court, become the leader of humanity, and bring blessings to all beings, your glory will shine throughout time and space." Young Red Lotus blinked his eyes before smiling, exposing his dazzling teeth: "There does not seem to be anything bad with this. I believe in fate!" Duke Long returned to reality after the slight trance. He looked at Feng Jin Huang and said solemnly: "Huang Er, you need to understand that you are the future Great Dream Immortal Venerable who will surpass all the past venerables! You will create dream path and be invincible in the whole world. Your glory will shine and spread for ages, becoming the eternal symbol and support of humanity. Don't fear, don't hesitate, take each success to press forward indomitably until you reach the supreme peak of this world!" Feng Jin Huang's eyes got brighter and brighter as she listened. She smiled with unparalleled beauty. Duke Long also smiled. Feng Jin Huang said: "If all this is predestined by fate, then… I do not believe in fate!" "What?" Duke Long's smile froze on his face. 1625 "The urgent thing now is to kill Fang Yuan! Not to mention Tao Zhu's inheritance, I would even give up a Gu Venerable's true inheritance to kill Fang Yuan!!" 1626 "Fang Yuan, why commit more murders? You kill me, I kill you, this cycle is too pitiful and miserable. You are an outstanding person of this era, why can't you see through this?" 1636 The girl had silvery hair that flowed down to her waist. Her pale blue dragon eyes emitting a cold aura to the outside world. Her skin was white as snow, her expression was cold, her beauty was simply divine. And the most eye-catching thing was the pair of small coral-like dragon horns on her forehead. Seeing this female immortal, Qi clan's Gu Immortals all thought of a name — Bai Ning Bing. 1641 Bai Ning Bing nodded, she stopped smiling as brilliance flashed in her dragon eyes: "Indeed, I have been pursuing excitement all along. This is why I admire you, Fang Yuan, your life is truly exciting, it is so thrilling! Every time you plot, every time you succeed, or even every time you fail, they are filled with excitement. Especially earlier when you were ambushed by Heavenly Court and had to escape like a dog, it was truly the most thrilling experience!" "The other Shadow Sect members cannot understand my feelings. Some just want to save Spectral Soul Demon Venerable, some feel fear and panic, some feel immense pressure, but what I feel is excitement and thrill. The bigger the problems, the bigger the troubles, the more exciting life is, isn't that right?" "Others might not know me, but I am sure that you understand me, right?" Bai Ning Bing stared at Fang Yuan's eyes with a bright gaze. Fang Yuan was silent. 1641 In fact, Bai Ning Bing and Fang Yuan were very similar, they were the same kind, only that they pursued different goals. Fang Yuan pursued eternal life, he was willing to sacrifice anything including himself. Even if he failed and died along the way, he would feel happy and content, because he lived pursuing his dreams, he felt a sense of satisfaction and enjoyment towards life. Bai Ning Bing said that Fang Yuan understood her, she was absolutely right, it was the same as how she understood Fang Yuan. The saying goes, heroes admired each other, it was the same for demons. 1641 Even without Bai Ning Bing's words, Fang Yuan knew that he needed all the strength he could get to face Heavenly Court and obtain Red Lotus' true inheritance. Bai Ning Bing was a precious source of battle strength, even if she was given a chance to betray him, so what? A blade was naturally able to harm oneself. But if he threw this blade away and fought empty handed, was that not a stupid move? It was up to Fang Yuan's abilities to make good use of this blade and prevent her betrayal. 1641 Thinking of this, Fang Yuan laughed: "Oh Bai Ning Bing, you are truly someone I admire, I will not kill you now. Follow me, witness my failure or success. If I die at your hands, that will be quite a show. But now, display your worth to me, bring me the heads of Qi clan's Gu Immortals, and also… their Qi Sea grotto-heaven." 1642 Fan Xi Liu nodded: "That is the case indeed. Don't you want to take revenge? After all, he slaughtered all of your clansmen in Gu Yue village." Gu Yue Fang Zheng sighed deeply, even though he had a young face, his gaze was deep with the vicissitudes of life. "So many years have passed. To speak the truth, even though I still hate him, I understand him already." "I have thought about it, I was very childish and ignorant when I was young, Fang Yuan had taken care of me greatly. In contrast, my uncle and aunt had treated me as a pawn and made use of me. Should I take revenge for such people? I do not want to." "Of course, the clan leader and Gu Yue Qing Shu had taken good care of me, they helped to nurture me, I am very willing to take revenge for them." "But I am tired now… sigh, the cycle of killing each other continues endlessly over time… I do not want revenge anymore." 1647 Fang Zheng nodded to himself, thinking: "Other than this, her descriptions of the calamities and tribulations are also very useful. I can see that this Zhao Lian Yun is very sincere, it is a pity that Immortal Crane Sect is not allowing us to meet, what a pity indeed! Don't you think so, Fang Yuan?" 1647 "This is the fourth one… evidently, Fang Yuan is helping his lackeys undergo tribulation to raise their cultivation levels. If this continues, the situation will not be good." 1653 The white figure appeared in his mind once again. Her expression was both vague and clear at the same time. Her name was Xie Han Mo. Xie Han Mo. Fang Yuan had never forgotten this name, because she was the person he loved the most in his previous life. 1660 Snap. Fang Yuan suddenly snapped his fingers, using a time path immortal killer move! The entire Golden Jade House and even the island became still, anything and everything became motionless. 1676 "Master, I did not imagine there to be a Gu Immortal inheritance here. That Xue Tu Dao secretly came here to obtain this inheritance. After I destroyed his plan, he used the inheritance's power to stop me and although I fought with all my strength, I did not think the battle would cause the mountain to crumble, unexpectedly, unexpectedly… the small village was completely buried. Master! It was me, I caused the death of these villagers!" Hong Ting sobbed. 1680 Duke Long nodded: "Continue to pay attention to him, even though this demon has reached rank eight, he has to face stronger calamities and tribulations now. This will definitely give him a headache. Although he can annex apertures with the sovereign immortal body, he needs rank eight grotto-heavens to skip grand tribulations. Furthermore, there is still the even more terrifying myriad tribulation!" 1687 Fang Yuan looked at the city. His body was gigantic, the tall city walls could only reach his knees. His expression was tranquil but his bull head horrified countless people. White cloud moved beside his shoulders, and what should have been a clear sky was blocked by his enormous figure, his shadow shrouding everyone's heart. 1702 "How long has Fang Yuan become a Gu Immortal? In just the blink of an eye, he became rank eight. And with another blink, he reached the peak of rank eight, even my battle strength is only at upper-tier rank eight level." 1705 "Who is this person? For just this little amount of cultivation resources, he is fighting as if his life depends on it?" Xiao Hu Chi gritted his teeth, he was also a courageous person, a general of Western Desert's super force Xiao clan, but in battle, he saw how crazy Pi Shui Han acted, he was completely suppressed. "If I am not wrong, he is Northern Plains' demonic path Gu Immortal Pi Shui Han." Xiao Shi Rang said plainly. Xiao Hu Chi was dazed: "So it was a Northern Plains brute! No wonder… forget it, Central Continent has so many resources, we do not need to compete with such maniacs." 1717 “To think that I can use this move to come to the future and participate in a huge battle, I am truly fortunate.” The second Northern Plains Gu Immortal who walked out of the phantom River of Time smiled. 1720 His words could be heard from the gentle winds: “The left is love, the right is affection, walking on both sides of life, scattering seeds and blooming flowers, making this journey full of flower fragrance, allowing the person who walks through branches and leaves to feel no pain even as they step on thorns, they can shed tears but feel no sadness.” [Link to list(1), here] - [Link to list(3), here]
