2023.06.07 13:50 CanidPsychopomp The Sopranos and my fucking life story

So anyway if you don't wanna listen, fuck you. I gotta coupla tree tings to say.
First of all I wanna make clear to alla youse that I bin in this thing FROM THE BEGINNING. First fucking episode, first fucking day alright? I recognised the potential from the start. So don't be giving me no attitude.
What it is, is that this fucking show, this fuck tv progrum has reflected and predicted some bits of my life, and maybe not just by chance but because of a couple dumb choices I made. Or maybe I'm the one who needs to get my head examined, I don't know. Paging Dr Melfi! Fuck that, I couldn't afford her pass me another Zoloft wouldya?
So anyway back where I'm from I got involved in a coupla things, nothing heavy, took a few risks. Never faced no consequences. Then I met this girl. Madone! From the first I was smitten. Thick curly black hair, dark eyes and an ass to die for. My thing was kinda windin down and I was ready for pastures new so we upped and moved back where she's from. Now this is Spain. These muthafuckas don't got things organised the way they do in Italy, but believe you me behind the scenes there's a lot going on. None of that interested me however, I was going straight and that was that. For the most part.
But the fucking family. Now my own family are a shitshow in their own right, but I walked right into a whole thing here.
Let me start with my jagoff brother-in-law. This stoogatz was a lazy fucking chifosa gavone, and a complete bullshit artist to boot. When I met him he seemed to make a living by doing some shit in nightclubs, who knows. He was always with the stories, how he was with a crew of mulignans in London, how he was tight with the Bulgarians that ran all the doors in the city, how he'd been a bodyguard when he was in the army. I didn't give a fuck. All bullshit as far as anyone could tell. So anyway, this is maybe 2002, 2002 and I start buying up the DVD boxsets when they come out. You remember them? You kids these days got know idea how it was back then. I was sick of listening to this motherfucker so I lend the cunt the season 1 box set. Mistake.
Thing is the stoonad really, and I mean really started to identify with it. First of all it was Livia. I mean the asshole was not wrong- his own mother, my mother-in-law, yeah, she was a Livia. God rest her soul she's gone now and there isn't a day I'm not thankful.
Then he watched the episode where Chris and Brendan jack the truck, and fuck me if he doesn't start telling me the very next week how him and his crew jacked a truckload of watches or some shit over the weekend. I just looked at him straight-faced while he tells me THE FUCKING EPISODE but with him as main character. He doesn't bat a fucking eylid, I think, this cunt is deranged, he's fucking loonytunes. I get the impression that while he's telling it, he's really believing it.
Anyway he goes from bad to worse but I'll get onto that.
But now my fucking fawtha-in-law. I mean this guy is a piece of work too. At times he's not around much in those days, as he can't spend all that much time around Livia before he fucks off to Florida, I mean Malaga, or the islands where he's got like two whole other families. This guy made a fuckton of money in the 80s and 90s somehow- I mean, he had legitimate businesses but there was some connected stuff going on too. They ran clubs and parties, and had close friends who did too, and there was even a couple of things about helping out some pretty high up people with looking after associates and stuff at critical moments. Colombians and Gallicians (they are up on the far north west coast and in those days they were bringing it all in that way). But by this time 2000 and whatever, he's past that for the most part, though he still was doing a bit of beach lookout stuff down south and hanging out with some questionable characters for a while. He's the type you know, he can be funny and charming and entertaining, but by and large he's just a fucking toxic narcissist. Used to be a tough guy, but to be honest in Spain they are more about talking about violence than actually doing it. Anyway, muthafucka pointed a gun at me twice, threatened to kill me one time. By this time my wife and I had built a house on the family compound, so after that he had to go away as far as I was concerned. Where I come from you make a threat you gotta be prepared to go through with or face the consequences as if you were gonna. Spanish people talk to much but I'm form where I'm from. So he was gone again, for a few years, till his goomars or whatever the fuck you wanna call them got sick of him and he put the feelers out to be able to come back. I gotta say, the family worked on me and I gave him a pass. We got drunk and high together a coupla tree times and worked it out, for a few years anyways.
So to the fucking brother-in-law. He gives me a ride one time in this car. Cracks open a hiddenc compartment he's got under the glove box, pulls out a pistol. Now this isn't the USA, where that shit is normal. Who knows, maybe it was fake. He's still living in some shithole apartment and from what I can tell conning women into paying for his lifestyle. Who the fuck knows it's all bullshit anyway, but things are obviously moving along for him. One time some friends visit for the weekend and he's around. They need to go to the airport in the morning and he says he going that way and can take them. I warn them they'll be better off taking the train but they go with him anyway. He shows up in full military uniform. Now this asshole did legitmiamtely spend a coulple of years in the military, but he shows up dressed as a major or a general or some shit. In the car on the way my friends are terrified as he drives at about 120mph all the way, weaving in and out of traffic, and all the time he never shuts up. Guy speaks ok English. He tells them how he's in the special forces, and he's getting a helicopter to Afghanistan to do some top secret shit, then coming back the same day. Some fucking helicopter. Turns out he's actually running some con on some poor woman in airport security. Another my brother comes over, he's only like 18 or something. Felipe (my b-i-l) invites him out clubbing. He's clearly at least a little connected as they waltz into every club straight past the line and sit in the VIP area drinking rum and cokes and doing lines. Another time another brother of mine is over (there's a few of us, my dad was Irish and he put it about). Felipe shows up ready for a night out, dressed in black suit, black shirt and some fucking blood red shiny tie, shiny shoes and all. Now me and my brother have had a drink or two, smoked a couple joints already (we went out a nearly got in a fight with some lesbians later that night) and anyway he's a bit of a roughneck fucker. Spent a couple years in the can too, later on. My brother-in-law is trying to be funny, I'm ignoring him, he makes some racist joke which my brother isn't into so he looks him in the eye and asks 'why the fuck you dressed like an extra from a gangster movie?' Fucking stoonad soon leaves. Another time he's like come up to my apartment, and he pulls out a big bag of coke and offers it to me. We do a couple lines, it's junk, no good shit like it always is here and I'm about over that stuff by now anyway, but I spent a while in Colombia and I can hold my own. He tells me he has it because someone owed him money and they gave him it in lieu after having to threaten the guy, so I think huh ok you talk a good game motherfucker let's see what you do. I think my wife is away with the baby at her sister's at this point maybe, at least that's how I wanna remember it. Anyway this shit is cut to fuck and not that strong so I think I'm gonna make the biggest fucking lines and see if we can do all of it and see if he makes a fuss. He makes a noise a couple times but doesn't try and stop me.
At this point I pretty much think it's all just basically cosplay. But then shit gets real. We get a call that he's arrested, locked up. And it's not just some bullshit either. The guy played the lead role in a stick up, dressed as police. The story goes the person they were sticking up was also connected, but I don't know. Anyway he gets caught and the rest of the crew don't, and he spends like three years in jail. His girlfriend comes over night of, telling me all kinds of tall tales, asking me to go with her to his apartment to pick up some shit the next day cos she's afraid to go on her own. My wife's away at this point down at the house by the shore with the kids, and I think about trying something but think nah fuck it, it'll be more hassle than it's worth.
When he comes out, I think he knows he aint got the stones for the carcelary experience really. The one time I go visit him he's got a black eye. Slipped in the shower, he says. I give him Goodfellas, Scarface and The French Connection to watch in there. When he comes out he sets up in the building trade, which is a pretty good way to rip people off if you know how. This goes on for years, he even manages to rip me off at one point but I stiff him on some of what he wants from me so I guess it works out even.
So it's years later. I'm just a working joe basically. We are still on the family compound. The father-in-law is there too, but in another building a little ways away, and my sister in law is also there. We've built a granny flat for Livia, but she doesn't get much time to enjoy it. We're away at the beach and we get the call that my other brother in law has found her floating in the pool. A stroke. Unsurprising really with the way she enjoyed a daily mix of uppers and downers.
Motherfucking Felipe tries to shake us down straightaway. The property was in Livia's sole name, for various legal reasons and her dying really made the shit hit the fan. We tell him fuck you. This is like 4 years ago now, maybe 5.
Since then motherfucker has snitched on the property for whatever the fuck- nothing here was ever exactly legit and up to code, but there's usually ways around stuff unless some motherfucker meddles. Has tried to, pretended to be going to run us down with his car. Has made sundry threats and calumnies to anyone willing to listen. So one night he shows up when we are celebrating something or other round a fire out by the woods. He gets into an argument with my wife and says some things he shouldn't, so I get up in his face and tell him to watch his mouth. He pushes me, like a fucking playground fight, and bad luck I fall back over the picnic table we got set up there. I get up an my wife and fucking daughter, who's like 18 by now are up in his face and he starts pushing them so I punch him in the face. Not a good shot, I'd been drinking 18 year old scotch all night. Mayhem, other guys there separate all of us but he keeps on screaming and raging. One point I pick up an empty vodka bottle but I don't do nothing with it. People manage to push him away, get him to his car but he keep screaming how he's gonna kill me, one time he'll find me on my own down the track (we've got more than a mile of rough country road to get to the compound). The highlight is I'm gonna get put in the trunk, he's had people in the trunk of his car for less. Oh and various slurs, anti-Northern European discrimination I call it.
This is all a couple years ago. Like I said I've got a few brothers. A couple of them we've always said anything heavy needs doing we'll be there for one another. Like I said, one of them did a couple years in the can, another was in the forces for a while, been under fire, shot a couple or tree bad guys in his time.
But I aint done shit, and he aint done shit neither. I sometimes think if I'd a realised the true point of the show that I'd'a run a mile way back when. Or if at least I hadn't lent the motherfucker my box set, things might coulda gone another way.
Fuck it, it's all a big nothing anyways.

2023.06.07 13:31 somehuman01 Always discontent

I don’t know exactly how to word this but I constantly feel discontent and kind of depressed. I’m not sure how to fix this. Does anyone with similar issues have any fixes for this? I cannot afford therapy, my insurance won’t cover it or meds.
Additionally, more of a rant but I feel like I get gaslit by my wife. I think that’s the word anyways. I saw a psychologist a while back and he said I have autism. He is like the third or fourth provider at this point that has told me this in my adult life. Anyways, I didn’t tell my wife about seeing him until afterwards and she wasn’t happy about me not telling her. She said she supports me etc. however, since telling her there have been a few instances where she says things like “why do you keep seeing psychologist if all they are doing is telling you that you have autism, it’s not helping you”. “You are doing things that you used to do and had stopped doing since talking to the counselor”. This is referencing repetitive movements.
Her parents and sister are also convinced that her sister’s daughter is autistic even though she is only four months old and shows normal developmental milestones so far and the pediatrician has no concerns. It’s so awkward because they talk to me about it and ask me questions because I work in healthcare. They have no idea I have autism so it’s awkward when they ask about the infant.

Book Descriptions & Covers:

How to Make Money in Stocks by William O'Neil
  • This book is about growth investing. O'Neil explains what most successful stocks have done to be successful. He explains his 'CANSLIM' method, which is an acronym for 7 fundamental criteria which you can use to pick stocks. An AAII 8 year study of different strategies showed O'Neal's CAN SLIM with a 860% return from 1998-2005 (Second place). First place was Martin Zwieg's returning 1,659.3% (we will get to Zweig on this list too)

The Little Book That Still Beats the Market by Joel Greenblatt

  • The idea of this book is to buy undervalued good businesses and hold them long-term, which will eventually beat the market index.

A Random Walk Down Wall Street by Burton G. Malkiel

  • This book covers investment bubbles, fundamental vs. technical analysis, modern portfolio theory, index funds, etc.

Principles by Ray Dalio

  • This book provides the insights from one of the biggest hedge fund managers of all time, and I think there are many great lessons to learn in this book!

One Up On Wall Street by Peter Lynch

  • This book emphasizes the advantages that individual investors hold over institutional investors (when it comes to finding investment opportunities). Lynch also gives many of examples of mistakes he has made, and how he has learned from them.

The Big Secret for the Small Investor by Joel Greenblatt

  • Greenblatt explains why index funds can be better than actively managed funds. The big secret is maintaining a long term perspective!

Winning on Wall Street by Martin Zweig

  • Zweig's success came from his ability to predict the bigger picture (such as trends in the broader market). The combination of his stock picking skill, general market understanding, and market timing, made him one of the great investors of stock market history. Zweig was more interested in growth than value. Unlike Buffett, Zweig isn't a 'buy and hold' investor. An AAII 8 year study of different strategies showed Zwieg's returning 1,659.3% from 1998-2005. He was #1 out of 56 others, including Buffett, Lynch, Fisher, O'Neal's CAN SLIM, Motley fools, and using ROE, P/E's etc. Second place was O'Neal's CAN SLIM with a 860% return.

Irrational Exuberance by Robert Shiller

  • Shiller makes strong argument that perfect market theory is flawed. The Idea of perfect market theory is basically that the markets are all knowing and completely rational, and in the long run can't be beat. Therefore , you can control costs with index funds and diversification. (You can't beat the market, therefore controlling costs and diversifying seems like logical strategy)

The Bogleheads' Guide to Investing

  • The key concepts of this book are risk tolerance, asset allocation, a balanced portfolio, tax efficiency and cash management. This book explains many of the pitfalls of investing. The Bogleheads and Jack Bogle preach the power of compound interest. Investing in low-fee index funds and holding them long-term is the method. This book gives an excellent, detailed rundown of how to implement this kind of investment plan.

Common Sense Investing by John Bogle

  • Great information for anyone who is trying to make sense of personal finance and basic investments. This book explains why passive investing is a worry free, long-term strategy that consistency wins over time, and why active trading always returns to the mean.

The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham

  • This is a great book for anyone who is interested in introducing themselves into the world of investing, or wants to get better at investing. This book gives lots of valuable information to help one understand the basics of value investing.

The Only Investment Guide You'll Ever Need by Andrew Tobias

  • This is a book for people looking to learn the basics of investing and saving money

You Can Be a Stock Market Genius by Joel Greenblatt

  • This is not a book for beginners. Greenblatt gives a nice exposition of some more "special situation" investment styles & areas of equity investments (mergers, spin-offs, rights offerings, etc.)

2023.06.07 13:24 Chardeemacdennis155 Dad upset I won’t pay for his divorce

Both my parents are really self centered. I went NC with my mom in 2014 which was the right choice for my mental health. I also didn’t talk to my dad for many years as well, mostly because it was easier to cut them both off.
I started talking to my dad here and there again recently. He’s now going through a divorce with my mom. I work as a paralegal at a law firm, so he started calling me every day for free legal advice. I told him that I don’t handle family court disputes and to please stop asking me for legal advice. My MIL is an FC lawyer, so I asked her to appear with him at one of his court dates, which she did for free. He called me to complain about her being late, instead of being grateful for the free assistance.
Then, the other day he called me because he can’t afford a divorce attorney. I gave him the name of a free legal aid organization locally that would be able to help him with his court proceedings. He refuses to call them and wants a paid attorney. However, since he cannot afford one he needed help paying their retainer.
I cut him off and told him that I can’t help pay for his divorce. His response was, “why.” He was very upset that I wouldn’t fork out the thousands of dollars for his divorce. I started to explain why but realized that I don’t owe him an explanation of how I, a 38 year old adult, choose to spend my money. My husband and I work very hard to be where we are, and he is simply not entitled to it.
I think he was surprised that I stood up for myself. As the eldest daughter, I’ve been the family fixer since I was 7. I refuse to play into that role anymore. He hasn’t spoken to me since. Whenever we did speak prior to this recent incident, he never asked how my life was— he’d only complain about his problems and if I tried to ask questions was told, “don’t interrupt” as if I was some child that needed scolded.
I don’t feel guilty for not helping so much as completely shocked that he’d have the audacity to feel entitled to my hard earned money. ESPECIALLY when, as a child, they refused to even give me 90 cents each day to pay for my school lunch. I was told to “figure it out” and left to beg for scraps every day at school. I’m just so disappointed that this is the relationship I have with both of my parents.

2023.06.07 13:19 GhostIsItsownGenre Why am I so sad? I want to change this energy. I have a long story. Thank you if you read it and have feedback

I'm going in deep because I want to find the source of this and change its energy. Life happens and we have no choice but to move on and I don't want this sadness to hold me back. I 39 Male never married, no kids, 6 girlfriends over 20 years. I have lived pretty simple and easy of low responsibilities. I don't get out much, especially with just myself. If I'm not at work, with friends or siblings then I'm in my room almost the whole time. I work a very social job but don't make a lot money however I can see this job with achieving my goals, utilizing my stock benefits to buy property to build a house on. My paychecks haven't been great but my stock helped me pay 20k worth of debt and have 35k of current investment. So I stay living below my means, simple and easy until I'm there. My personal life style and situation has a lot to so with it but on to what happened.
I don't think this situation is really that bad, I've seen worse with my friends and family which doesn't make me feel better, but for my own personal experience this has been pretty hard and painful. My best friend and my ex are dating, only 2 months and she (ex) got pregnant. There was a 5 month gap since we broke up before they started dating and she was with a very toxic drug addict between us. So my best friend had nothing to do between her and I not working out so I don't hate them and still their friend. She didnt leave me for him not cheated on me him, it had nothing to do with me.
I was about to never talk to my ex ever again. But since they're dating, I decided to stay friends. Never been friends with an ex before. She was a drug addict, like really bad and alcoholic, restless and had anxiety with a poor self image. But she is really good looking and fun and really sweet. So it's sad how she holds herself like that. I always tried to encourage her and show her how awesome she actually is. I know she is a good person. Shes got deep trauma too tho. She made me feel some of the most love anyone has and was really fun most fun of all my girlfriends. But at the same time she was really rude when she wasn't sweet. Her restlessness and anxiety made it hard to have her around me when we werent having fun. She said some of the most hurtful things anyone has said to me and it was the substance abuse, I think.
I had a hard time dealing with her substance abuse, she never did it around me. But it obviously had an effect. I thought several times if I should break up with her, but I still wanted to stay. After 6 months she was spending less time with me, she would be with her drug friends. So I started feeling hurt when she would bail on plans and choose to stay there instead of with me. She would say things like "if we even make it 6 months" she told me she was hard to handle and wasn't good with relationships. Not giving me much motivation. But I love her.
My personal life was in shambles, my living situation was a disaster, I barely had space in my room. I was hoarding junk. I wasn't pursuing my other goals/passions. It was 6 years since my last relationship the longest I've ever been single. I been at the lowest Ive been. I guess substance abuse is a deal breaker because I didn't really lean in, it ruined my family when I was a kid. I distanced myself instead and hoped that she would change. I would always tell her to come over instead, say things like you are allowed to have the friends you want but if you can't make the change and be sober around them then she'll have to make difficult decisions and not be around them, but that's up to you to figure out.. She couldn't do it on her own it seems. Feeling a lot of pain from her behavior and anxiety. She broke up with me after 9 months, because I wasn't in her life in the scope that she wanted. I couldn't get to her when she felt like needed me the most, when she was struggling with addiction and anxiety. Transportation issues, stubborn to buy a vehicle but managing to save money and I stayed away from the trap house where she would run into toxic people.
So I started to feel relieved actually. After the break up. Not having that around anymore, I was in so much pain from how she treated me I was about to never talk to her again, except I knew that I was a positive light for her. So she reached out a few times and I gave her my time. Things got way worse for her and her addiction. Fast forward now to my friend stepping in and getting rid of the toxic people, he picked her up, took her home and fed her and then they started dating.
She's now over 2 months clean. Which I'm proud of. I was really mad at first hearing about them dating. I remain friends with her and at that level it's good, she's been sweet and fun like how I like her. She's been a good friend. I still have feelings for her for some reason. She told me it wasn't that she didn't want to spend time with me, which at first was my assumption making me feel hurt. Although she said hurtful things, like not spending time with me so I said I felt low priority, her response was "you arent even priority." That hurt. But evidentally she felt like she wasnt priority to me. She said it was all about her substance abuse and she didn't mean any of that. So with that understanding I'm no longer mad at her or blame her. Being around her sober and clean is new to me. But jealous my friend has that after what I went through.
It's been hard to see them together. Seeing him get affection from someone who I used to get it from and I havent dated anyone since. It makes me feel lonely. But I am super grateful of her healing. So I cannot resist her chance to get better. But it seems very codependent. Why am I so sad about this? Regret for not doing what he did in order to help her the way she wanted/needed? So I didn't get to be with the healing/healthier her. She is improving and I see things present in their relationship I wanted. So that makes me jealous. It was hard to hear she is pregnant with his kid, unplanned, that she decided to keep. While when we were together, she said she wouldve had my baby if I got her pregnant. She already has 2 daughters and is a good mom, she's done good at not letting the drugs get in the way of her family. We talked about having a family. We would have if we stayed together.
But with all the pain, anger and anxiety that made me think about breaking up with her, the relief of not having her around and telling myself to not take her back if I had the chance for the sake not being lonely, why does this made me sad? She thought I didn't love her but she has no idea how hard it was for me. Seeing her healthy and healing kinda makes me want her back. But I don't know if it would even be good or not.
Either way this has pushed me a bit. I'm going through a transition. I cleaned up my room a lot and started studying on things that will help me with my goals/passions. But I've still been pretty sad and low ambition though I have been feeling some motivation to work on myself more, take care of my space and not feel sorry about myself about it and the relationship. I don't want to live like that. Thus situation makes me want to improve myself for the next person. But I feel like sadness is still holding me back.
Did I let her slip through my hands by not engaging with the problem of her addiction thay my friend did? With regret that makes me sad? Am I sad because of attachment? Seeing my friend get affection when I don't get it anymore and haven't found anyone else? Am I sad because I didn't change my living space, get a new car, work on myself to be there for her even though it would have been hard. Am I sad because it revealed to me my living situation? She pointed things out and I didn't take action fast enough to change. As she said nothing changed. But it's changing now, but not very quickly. But progress is progress
My life isn't any set back than it was before I met her. Actually it's a little better. So why am I sad? My room is getting better so I've started from here and working my way out, though I'm not doing it very quickly. I know she really cares about me and says she still needs me in her life. She was a foster child with my half brother I haven't seen since he was 2, for 25 years. I met him because of her, so she's been significant coming into my life.
Why do I feel sad seeing them have what I wanted and never got? When I don't even know if it would have been better. Cause they've been making each other mad and having some struggles. But they are having a baby and working it out it seems
Am I really sad about them? Or her? Or am I sad about myself and that's why this is motivating me to change. I've only taken a few tiny steps. My ego says its wrong, where my heart says that things manifest as they are needed. She wouldn't have had the chance to get better with the help of my best friend had I not endured that.
How do I change this energy so it doesn't hold me back from my growth, process, goals, self care, finding other relationships. Thank you for reading

2023.06.07 13:15 AdditionalWar8759 Give them Lala Podcast: Episode from June 7th, “The One Where Lala CANNOT Relate.”

Beginning Chit Chat - Lala is loving the RHONJ reunion and says Margaret and Melissa have no control on what the show is going to focus on as far as a storyline - Lala loves Lisa Rinna and if you don’t like her, Lala doesn’t know if she can really fuck with you
Reunion - Lala said it was strange to hear Lisa telling her to stop when Sandoval was calling Lala a narcissist. - Lala said granted she was calling Sandoval a narcissist and understood he had to fight back - However Lala again said there is a difference between narcissism and ego - Lala said that Sandoval wants to keep bringing up her past and everyone else’s past but it is his past and present that is still aligning, still existing - Talked about how again we will not see one tear from Raquel when she is with the group - Lala said she is going to backtrack on her saying Raquel is broken and say she is scary - Lala loved Andy’s face when he was interviewing Raquel
IUD Comment - When they were filming the reunion, Lala did not hear Sandoval’s comment about her pulling her IUD out the second she found out Stassi was pregnant - Lala said when she watched that, her heart fell into her stomach and she sobbed - She posted a Instagram story talking about the comment and then afterwards sobbed - Lala said it wasn’t because it was Sandoval who said it, it could have been anyone who spoke about her daughter and she would get upset - Lala said Sandoval’s comment had nothing to do with anything and he was just trying to throw anything at the wall like Ariana said he would - She’s so thankful she didn’t hear him in the moment because, “that would have been a full on spiral and then they would definitely had security get involved.” - Lala said she isn’t a violent person but moms know when someone says something nasty about your child, you want to rip that persons eyes out - Lala did know that Brittany was trying to get pregnant, Stassi was pregnant, and Scheana was trying and this was around the time (OP here, trigger warning: mentions pregnancy loss) Scheana had a miscarriage. Lala knew she wanted her child to have friends - Lala’s mom also planned her pregnancies around her friends that were having babies
Part 3 of the reunion - When this episode was recorded, Lala still hadn’t been sent part 3 - They usually get the episodes the Friday before Wednesday’s episodes - Lala heard they weren’t going to get it at all and would have to watch it tonight (OP here, however if you saw James Instagram story, it looks like he watched it last night) - Lala said that there is a comment that Sandoval makes tonight that will show who this person really is and Lala thinks he is going to need security for a while and Lala knows it will air - Lala said she knows it will air because when Scheana and Lala went to the For you consideration, NBCU Emmy event, they showed 6 or 9 minutes of the final reunion and they were like we saw the clip of Sandoval saying this and they were like I’m disgusted - Lala said it’s funny how Sandoval can pretend to cry and act like he was acting at the reunion and then deliver a line like that
Raquel and pageants - Lala said you put, “Raquel in a pageant and for many years the competition had to deal with who’s prettier, who looks better in a bathing suit, who looks better in a gown, and it’s the most unhealthy competition you could possibly place your daughter in.” - Lala is shocked that pageants are still around - Raquel has been in competition mode with women in an unhealthy way since she was a child
Raquel - Lala said Raquel is very into appearance. The night in Vegas, Raquel got so wasted, and then the next day she walks in with a full face of make up - Lala said when they left Vegas and went to Havasu, they went to a diner and this is where Raquel is claiming that everyone was so mean to her but Lala said that Raquel was in the bathroom that whole time throwing up. - They kept asking if she was okay and they ordered her food and a soda. They put her in a booth behind them, not to exile her, but so she could lie down - Lala thinks that Raquel will return for season 11 and the only way she wouldn’t return is if her parents kept her in a bunker - Lala said, “I have heard that communication has been happening. I don’t know if it’s between this side of things and her team, direct, but I’ve heard that communication is open, it’s alive and well and happening.”
WWHL - She is nervous for WWHL because part 3 will be very fresh to her and she won’t have time to re watch it and process it
Ariana - Lala wanted to clarify that on last weeks episode she was talking about Ariana and her thriving now and that when her and Sandoval were together, Ariana became background noise - Lala said that was not a insult to Ariana - What she was saying was when you deal with someone like Sandoval, they are exhausting so you become background noise, you fade into the distance because you just cannot - She said even Schwartz is background noise against Sandoval because you just can’t go up against someone like that because you are just tired - Lala text Ariana after last weeks episode and said, “I just want to tell you, I fucking hate your ex. Im so glad that your out here being the star that you fucking always been because he stifled your fire.”

2023.06.07 13:00 SpookyBjorn Anybody else get weirded out by parental/familial affection?

(for context im 28F) My nMom never raised us with physical affection unless she wanted it *usually an ocassional hug om a birthday or of we were very very upset, I'm talking 2 or 3 hugs a year max.)
She never kissed or hugged our dad EVER In front of us, and she suually made fun of us for hugging our dad so we eventually just stopped.
I was watching a commercial the other day where a mother and daughter were cuddling and laughing in bed and my immediate response was disgust and repulsion. I turned to my boyfriend and remarked on how gross and inappropriate it was, and he looked at me like I had two heads and said it was perfectly normal.
If I see a mother or father give their child a kiss or snuggling on the couch it just makes me so grossed out and uncomfortable because my mMom had to raise us that any kind of touch with family was inappropriate unless there were extenuating circumstances.
One time my niece tried to snuggle next to me on the couch when I was in highscool and I remember pushing her away and saying "we don't do that" and she looked really hurt and never tried to hug me or anything again after that.
I hate that my weird nMom couldn't just raise me and my siblings normal!!!!! I hate that regular human affection weirds me out!! I can't even sit next to people, I get scared and anxious if their keg touches my leg and I often times will stand or sit at the table when friends are over and sitting on our couch 💀

2023.06.07 12:53 Embarrassed-Still825 AITA for wanting my partner [28F] to redesign the kitchen in her house?

She and I [33M] have been together for almost 2 years and recently decided to move in together. She has a newer, bigger house (I had a small condo) and it is in a really nice location. So, we decided that I would move into her place. We are all happy and life is good… except for a few logistical issues like the kitchen. I hadn’t noticed it so much prior to moving in, but the kitchen countertops in her house are significantly higher than standard. Also the cabinets are higher (9ft ceilings). I should mention at this point that I am quite short for a guy (5’2”) and my girlfriend is fairly tall (a bit over 5’10”). Her ex-husband that she built the house with is like 6’3” so I can only imagine that they intentionally decided to design the kitchen this way as it is more comfortable for them. But I am living here now, not him… and I find it quite awkward using the kitchen with these higher countertops. The bathrooms are the same way I might add.
Since I sold my condo, I have some money that I could use to reno the kitchen and make the countertops and cabinets more ergonomic for me. I have suggested this and offered to pay for it, but she doesn’t want to touch the kitchen at all. She loves how it is set up. Admittedly, she does most of the cooking in our relationship. She has said that selling the house and moving is not an option because the location is ideal for her kids going to school, it’s across from a park and on a quiet street etc. Also close to her sisters which she likes.
The kitchen isn’t a dealbreaker for me, overall I am extremely happy and I will suck it up if she doesn’t want to redesign it. But AITA for just wanting it to be a bit more accessible for me?

2023.06.07 12:46 Shep_vas_Normandy US soap operas versus UK

I’m from the US and moved here a year ago. Back in the states my mom and grandparents always watched soap operas and it’s something that was part of my life growing up. Like my grandparents watching it during summer break or my mom recording it on VHS to watch when she got home from work.
But the soap operas in the US are so over the top - like the villain is stealing peoples faces so he can pretend to be them and fool everyone in town! Or this character had twins she didn’t know about and her enemy is actually her daughter!
There are so many completely unbelievable storylines and it sometimes made it hard to watch - I think the storylines are dated since they are trying to appeal to older people who have been watching since the 60s.
So Hollyoaks is interesting to me since it feels relevant. I got to not it when they were advertising the incel storyline. I like how current it is - that there are storylines about social media bullying and there is representation of different types of people. It still ends up being entertaining and so far the only storyline that has made me roll my eyes is “the heist” (is it over yet? Ugh).
I think the US soaps would be able to pull in a newer audience if they took a note from the UK on storylines instead of trying to rely on their older viewers.

2023.06.07 12:44 sophie9709 Something I have noticed part 6: geographically speaking, it makes sense that Lord Kuro of Hirata Estate was chosen to the second (?) Divine Heir (mild-ish spoilers?)

Map in which you can access from inside the game. Go commune with a statue > travel > check the bottom right for the button for the Antique Map.
Welcome back to the mad ramblings of someone who has probably done too much exploring of the game to ever get gud. Now, onto the topic of the Dragonspring River and how its flow and direction has ensured the second (?) Divine Heir was born in Hirata Estate. TL;DR at the end.
First, let's talk about the first(?) Divine Heir. The only reason why I put question marks around the 'first' and 'second' designation is that because technically, we don't know how many Divine Heirs there has been. But I'm calling the previous Divine Heir the first one for simplicity's sake and because we only know of two of them.

The first Divine Heir of Ashina: Lord Takeru

Lord Takeru, according to in-game item descriptions of the two Everblossom branches, came from the Divine Realm.
(I'm in NG + 2, if you are wondering)
As far as I can tell, there is only one Everblossom tree at the Divine Realm: the one that the Divine Dragon is resting on.

Side note for those who like to read: >! There is a theory that the Divine Dragon lost one of their arms when Owl cut off the Aromatic Branch and made the Everblossom tree at Ashina Castle die. This is because the Divine Dragon's Japanese name is Sakura-Ryu (桜竜) (translated: Dragon of Sakura). In other words, the Dragon is connected to all the Everblossom trees. If one of those trees die, they lose a body part. !<
It can therefore be inferred that Takeru is the Heir to the Dragon, whatever that means. Why is a human heir to a dragon? Turns out, in Japanese mythology, dragons can shapeshift into humans. The most famous example of this would be Ryūjin (龍神). He apparently is the ancestor of all Japanese emperors through his daughter Toyotama-hime (Japanese: 豊玉姫). The bigger question is why Takeru has chosen to remain a human and not a dragon. Unless...he could also be the son of one of the brides of the Dragonspring pilgrimage. Makes you wonder how many Divine Heirs are actually running around at any given time and whether Takeru was the first to leave the Divine Realm.
(Side note: according to this definition of species, it is possible that dragons and humans are the same species due to the presence of fertile offspring. Which goes to show, again, Japanese mythology is...unique).
So, Takeru somehow leaves the Divine Realm and ends up in Ashina with his shinobi, Lady Tomoe. He ends up living there for a little while, probably causing the first Dragonrot epidemic, and presumably dies from it.
Both Takeru and Tomoe are buried at the Old Grave in Ashina Castle, where Ashina's Everblossom used to be.
Source: Note the fencing where the tree used to be.

And what does this have to do with Hirata Estate???

There is a reason why I showed you the antique map right off the bat.
The blue arrow shows you the rough flow of the Dragonspring river. I could be wrong.
The game wants you to know that the river running next to Hirata Estate is the Dragonspring river. Like, really really wants you to know.
The arrows are mine but come on
What do I mean by "really really wants you to know"? Well, the name of the Sculptor's Idol is a little weird. Usually, in a given area, there is an Idol that is named just the area. Cases in point.
So to put the Dragonspring preface on the name of the Idol that is supposed to be named after the area...well..the Developers wants you to notice in a subtle way. And how do I know that the Dragonspring river that runs through Hirata Estate comes from the Fountainhead Palace, and therefore its ultimate source is the Divine Realm? Well, it's called the Dragonspring. Like a spring that sprang from a dragon. Then there is the Dragonspring Pilgrimage, which is implied by the Mibu balloons to follow the Dragonspring river to the Fountainheads.
And lastly, the corrupt priest of Mibu village complains the water of Mibu is too diluted for him to become a Palace Noble, and he needs pure water from the Fountainhead Palace itself.
This implies that at least part of the water from Mibu village, and hence Dragonspring River comes from the Fountainhead Palace.
Ergo (I really hope I'm not stretching this out like taffy), it is implied that there is a river of water that flows from the Divine Dragon to the Fountainhead, then onto Sunken Valley (as confirmed by detritus from the Fountainhead Palace at the bottom of the waterfall and of course the dead Carp Noble), then Mibu Village, and Ashina Castle, before finally reaching Hirata Estate.

Get on with it. What does this have to do with Kuro? (TL;DR)

Thanks for being a champ and reading this mess of a deep dive. Now that we have confirmed that the geographic link between the Divine Dragon, Takeru, and Kuro is the Dragonspring River, I propose the theory that the reason why Kuro was chosen to be the second Divine Heiis potentially a reincarnation of Takeru is because Hirata Estate is downriver from Ashina Castle. The essence of the Divine Dragon has flowed downwards via the Dragonspring river from Ashina Castle, where Takeru was buried. Either the next kid born at Hirata Estate after Takeru's death was always destined to be the next Divine Heir, or somehow Takeru's spirit travelled along the river to the next destination. Or the whole thing is just symbolic, and the river is a metaphor. Or I'm rambling mad again.
What do you guys think?

2023.06.07 12:39 GoalNo4319 A year and a half since my mum died

My mum died a year and a half ago from breast cancer and my life has never been the same since. It’s changed everything- my family, my personality, relationships with friends, etc. I feel like a whole different person. I always find myself reminiscing my old life and old self back when things were good and I feel I’m living a completely different life now. My mum was the kindest, purest woman I had ever met and it breaks my soul that the woman who had unconditional love for me is gone forever. Like it physically hurts. Sometimes I still find it so hard to comprehend and it’s so weird to think that she really is gone and is never coming back. She’s going to miss so many milestones of my life like getting married and having kids. She’s becoming a distant memory and it scares me. I still have so much of my life to live and it’ll all be without her in it when she’s been right by my side for 22 years of my life. I feel jealous when I see mums and daughters together. Why did that have to be robbed from me? I feel like after a certain point people stop checking in and asking how you are and think you’re all good to go again after a couple months have passed. It’s a lifelong void that will never be filled, but I guess people who haven’t gone through it will never get it. I just wanted to get this off my chest, maybe someone else can relate

2023.06.07 12:26 Awkwardrooster69 AMA about accolades

I really liked the tours and tournaments update especially the accolades. I also liked that stewardship has been nerfed and your title matters more now than your holdings.
So it was kind of a surprise to see people here who are not. And I think it's because they find it difficult to make it work.
As someone who has managed to max out a couple of accolades I can help you out here.
First let's rank some characters who will make excellent acclaimed knights.
  1. Rollo 867 Give him the Vanguard and Valiant traits. Vanguard gives you the retinue heavy infantry which is even better than Varangians which is saying something.
In my recent run as Harald Finehair i maxxed him out by intentionally getting a Crusade declared on me as the King of England.
  1. Dan
Just some lowborn guy with impressive prowess and brave trait. So he can get Vanguard and contender traits. I got him as Finehair by marrying my ex wife to him matrilineally. I married Saga the Truthspeaker in a grand marriage.
  1. El Cid 1066
Same as above except the Crusade ofcourse
  1. Turgise Sansevirinu 1066
He's in Guiscard's court my favourite start.
  1. Nicolas the Girthy 1066
Probably an easter egg character. Has the Berserker trait for some reason so he can get the Vanguard trait too. Which is useful of you are a Norman.
Now some traditions which better accolade gain
  1. Chanson De Geate
  2. Only the Strong
  3. Performative Honor
  4. Warriors by merit
Also Chivalric dominance and Gallant also increase accolade gain
Now how to get reliable successors.
  1. Have lots of children Confederate partition is not a problem. Embrace it with feudal electives.
Now some of your daughters can bring in acclaimed knights.
Now suppose what you want as I do is a Vanguard - Valiant.
Requirements for Vanguard is any type of physical attribute - strong, athletic or any of the Hale line. For Valiant it's Brave, Reckless or Berserker. So marry your daughter to someone who is brave and strong. Many options will be there
You want Vanguard Tactician? Marry your daughter off to someone who is brave and has more than 15 martial.
  1. Befriend schemes
A friend has a flat +50 chance to join your court
  1. Have the best court
  2. Learn their language
Some rulers who get a nice start to get good acclaimed knights
A. Harald finehair
Lots of Norse characters who have very high prowess. Rollo can be easily recruited by marrying him to your mother.
B. Robert Guiscard
Most of the Hauteville characters have a martial education and generally have high prowess. Look out for Serlo and Constantine Hauteville, your nephews. As also Turgise Sansevirinu, Roger Baileul and Nicholas the Girthy.
C. Alfred of Wessex
This is only for Uhtred Fans. For the memes. As the Uhtred in the game is hopeless. Name a child courtier as Uhtred and go from there. Better if its the feral child with the nickname Son of🤣🤣
D. Bjorn Ironside
E. Rognvald of Prandheimr
F. Harald Hardrada
G. William the Bastard
H. Sancho - El Cid
Additional precautions.
It's better if your acclaimed knight is lowborn as rulers don't get glory from battles. Only tournaments.

2023.06.07 12:15 QwertyMelown So i have an NTR story again lololol, pls ask if theres something i missed and will try to explain it

Okay ive been thinking of donkey from the shrek, like you know he fucked a dragon i have a story:
So the mc and a dragon have been in a relationship after lots of time and fights and they and journey then they end up together and built a big territory big enough and comfortable for the dragon and mc to rest and work with. Then one day the mc wants to pleasure her dragon the mc and dragon have been having sex but the is the only one who can get pleasure since hes a human and not that big but ofc they used some toys big toys mc made and the feels the dragon isnt satisfied and just acting since its not his actual penis, and thats what is inside the mind of mc, since the mc wants to also fulfill her dragon's pleasure but ofc the dragon is too big, the mc decided to find some kind of magic and spell to make one living thing big overall size or make the dragon human temporarily and if mc where ever to find thst spell or magic mc is able to make it one of his pocket abilities and wants to know stuff about this since mc feels like his love isnt enough, thats what he thinks and also wanted to feel the dragon fully and embrace her but the dragon said it is fine she loves him the way he is and dont need such thing and shes pleasured enough with their doings and the mc insists "no im gonna find a way" , but then one time when the mc had to left their home (the mc wanted the dragon to come but the dragon said she has to take care of chores and shit like that then the mc insisted that its okay and will do it together just like before but the dragon said it is fine she wants to make the mc comfortable and make things ready for him to relax after the meeting (so its like some kind of treat) then the mc said "oh i see, alright then im excited now, please dont work to hard" then the dragon kissed the mc before he left. Then now the mc is about attend some kind of meeting with something, like u know guild stuff or shit like that in rpg, but apparently the meeting was cancelled when he got there now he excitedly wants to go home since all that meeting is just some unimportant stuff and now he thinks he should surprise the dragon and bought something the dragon likes. Then when he came back home, meeting was supposed to last like 4hours so thats why he wanted to surprise the dragon, then when he was close to home he heard a loud noise and its a moan of a dragon, then mc hurriedly came real fast cause he thought shes in danger and he also heard a male voice dragon then when he got there he discovered the female dragon, is having sex with some big strong dragon and he can see how pleasured the female dragon and at this moment he knew hes right about the dragon getting what she needs, and must be containing this, this whole time, but ofc he was hurt since he already told he'd find a way for them to fully pleasure each other since the mc also wants to fully feel her and then the mc yelled to them saying "what the fuck is this" then the they were startled and the mc charged to the male dragon and almost killed him if it wasnt for the female dragon stopping him then the female dragon was scared and worried and trying to reason then they had a lot of arguing for a minutes saying she has needs then the mc said "i already told u i'd find a way for us but u insisted and now this?!" then the mc left in tears and were deeply hurt. The female dragon tried stopping him and begged to not leave her but he vanished (he has some kind of abilites since its rpg and hes strong)
Then when the mc left crying while wandering around somewhere dont know what to do and feel lifeless, the mc got a notification from the meeting saying the reason why it got cancelled, turns out theyve been busy trying to raid some big level boss for days and if they managed to defeat it, they'll be able to get a huge amount of valuables, then the mc came hurriedly and in despair and wanted to take all his anger and sadness to that boss.
The guild was surprised how much stronger the mc was than before and saw him in a state they've never seen before, he was in rage and sadness when he defeated the dragon with ease and didnt feel enough that he almost killed one of his mates, when he was about to kill his mate, something in boss home came out of nowhere turns out it was a daughter of the boss theyve killed and its a dragon, ( the boss dragon [the father] was actually torturing his daughter into becoming a dragon made for killing) so it means shes strong but the boss [the father of the dragon that appeared to stop the mc] was so cruel that all his doing is evil killing innocent kinds and even the daughter wanted to kill him, but she cant since hes strong and was surprised that the mc was able to take it down easily.
So when the dragon, [daughter of the boss] stopped the mc, the mc was surprised and also almost killed her, but then when shes on the ground, wounded, she told the mc she meant no hurt and explained his fathers evil doing and also wanted to kill him, and said they've also saved her from his cruel evil doings of his father, his guildmate said its a trap and might be just reasoning so they said to the mc to end her, but then mc remembered how he also saved a dragon, her gf who now cheated, the mc treated the the dragon daughter with his skills healing and such, but still have to rest, the guildmates was surprised and tried arguing with him but the mc showed them a face he never showed before so they just let him be then they took the valuables, loots all that.
Then the guildmated asked if he wanted to come home with them the mc responsed in a calm manner and wanted to stay with the daughter dragon since shes wounded by him and wanted to take care and its hes responsible for it, so they understand him and told the mc to be careful and gave the mc foods and comforting stuff so they dont have to worry for the mc.
And the mc ofcourse apologized deeply for the guild and specially the one he almost killed, and thank them for this, and he said, he'll take care of this dragon, and told their goodbyes and they said to expect the mc to join the celebration (just like before) of after everytime they succeed in killing a boss, specially this one since this was the hardest took a great amount of guildmates/members, and mc said yes he'll try to, and said that he just have a lot of things going on, and so they said their goodbyes.
Then a moment later the mc treated the daughter dragon for fast healing while the daughter dragon is sleeping/resting then he fell asleep.
Next day he woke up and was surprised its already afternoon and the celebration is always celebrated at night the day after they've killed a boss.
Then he heard someone is doing something and when he saw it, its a woman and threatened her who she is and why is she here and wheres the dragon, then the female dragon calmly explained. Turns out shes the dragon and can shape shift with her abilities, and the mc was shocked and sad when remembered his gf (his gf is around 30+ based on her age and looks, she looks like a mom) and this woman also looks like a mom but shes inexperienced about such and tried having relationship with other dragons but she just cant find the interest even when she tried having intercourse (one time when the dragon who she tried having sex with showed his penis the daughter dragon didnt feel any interest but then the dragon tried force her she said sorry but she really dont feel like it then the dragon tried raping her then she cuts off the dragon penis and left) and also was because of his father forcing her to get stronger, so she never had any interest in relationship.
Then the mc was shocked, the daughter dragon cooked a meal for both of them and she said to sit and they'll have a meal, then they talked about the things that happened yesterday, and had a cry and laugh. Then after eating, the mc helped the daughter dragon in human form to do the dishes then after, he sit on the bed and explained why he was in raged that time when he killed the boss, her father, after explaning what happened he couldn't help but let a tear out, then the daughter dragon comforted him and ended up them having lovey dovey. <3
Then after that they go outside and had an interest to each others abilities and teached eachother so the mc learned a skill to be a giant and can even be dragon because when they had seggs they apparently in surprised both of them got some of their skills, and now mc can turn into a dragon and even change his size overall and human size too so thats why he can be a giant, the for the daughter dragon she learned some of his skills too and even felt eachother emotion. (While the fmc dragon his old gf, is trying to find the mc and is in deep regret and still trying to find the mc anywhere).
Then the mc remembers the celebration if his guild/mates, so he invited her to come with him and celebrate, she agrees.
Then after they come to the celebration and had lots of food and drinks, the daughter dragon got drunk easily and mc took her to a room then the daughter dragon tried kissing the mc and the mc said shes drunk but they can easily remove it with abilities but mc said she gotta experience how it like to be drunk, but the daughter dragon knows she is drunk and wanted to kiss mc, and tried saying to the mc its fine, since its the mc and she knows its mc, but the mc said shes drunk she needs to rest since its her first time the mc wanted to let the mc what it feels to be drunk, since when they talked lots of things earlier, the dragon daughter said she never had any alcohol and never had interest with it plus his father never allowed her to buy for herself. So she drink in the celebration in appreciation of mc and what theyve been through, the she kept talking and mc then mc layed her down to bed then fell asleep, the mc stays there to accompany her, then a moment later mc heard her talking, and mc thinks shes just dreaming, then while shes talking she accidentally transformed or shapeshift into a dragon then took the mc outside and ofcourse the room was damaged then the daughter dragon took mc somewhere high like a mountain where there is no one.
Then the old/ex gf of mc heard something and hurriedly came into that noise then she saw something on the mountain, then she sneakily go in there, then she saw mc and a female dragon, their position is the daughter dragon is pinning mc in a dominating way while the mc is in human form while they're talking then after a minute of talking while the ex gf is watching she was about to stop them (the ex gf was hesitant if she should interrupt them, because shes still guilty as hell) but then the daughter dragon and kissed the mc erotically then the ex gf was shocked and was about to interrupt then the mc transformed into a dragon, so the ex gf was stunned of what happened, then the mc was hard in a dragon form then kissed the daughter dragon erotically then inserted his big dragon penis, even the daughter dragon was surprised, and the ex gf too of how the mc is bigger than most dragons.
Then the daughter dragon said to be gently since it'll be her first time then mc said, he will be but not for long, with a smirk, then the daughter dragon blushed and said "baka~ uwu~ <3" then when the mc was rubbing his dragon penis to the daughter dragon pussy, and was about to insert it, the ex gf interrupted them and yelled to them to stop! The mc was surprised also the daughter dragon then, the daughter dragon used her immobilizing ability to the ex gf, then the ex gf is stuck and cant move and said what is this and said to let her out or she will kill the daughter dragon, then the daughter dragon said "is this the gf dragon you're talking about?" Then the mc nodded, "then who do you choose me or her?" Then the mc had a moment then said "sorry but i think were done the moment u betrayed me" Then the ex gf dragon said "NO! NOO! I WONT DO IT AGAIN I PROMISE, I DIDNT MEAN TO DO IT, PLEASE COMEBACK! I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO WITHOUT YOU!" Mc said "sorry, i tried fixing it, but u made it worse" then mc proceeds to instantly penetrate the daughter gf, then the daughter dragon said, "oooooh, wh-what d-did i-" while her eyes is white as paint in pleasure mc proceeds to slowly take out the shaft of his cock, *while the dragon daughter is in heaven from pleasure and mc said "oooh~ mmmh~ didnt know dragon felt this good~, while the ex gf is just watching trying to convince mc to stop and comeback, then ex gf said while crying "nooo~ this isn't you what are u doing~ then mc proceeds to feel heaven and kept penetrating and said "sorry maybe if u were faithful, you'll be the one im penetrating right now", then mc transformed into a human, in giant size, then proceeds to penetrate her daughter dragon said "ooohh human cock in dragon form~ we should do this more often" then the ex gf was so jealous and seeing them like that, the dragon ex gf proceeds to pleasure herself while crying and saying the mc's name.
Til morning the mc and daughter dragon kept having sex while transforming and testing lewd sex, theyve never knew would be beyond heaven, while the ex gf is in lifeless state and angry and sad she dont know what to feel, and deeply regretted of what she did and remembering all the time they've spent together with mc.
The mc now own a country and living with her wife (daughter dragon) and have multiple children, and plans to make them stronger by sending them out to other place, and ofc some of their children didnt want to, so the female children stayed with the mc and his wife, (this is 17year later the "sending" them out, but the mc and wife and gf is still young because of their abilities" while the ex gf became an obedient dog to the mc since she wanted to go back with the mc no matter what, but mc is still hurt, so mc didnt really treated her like before, and treats her new wife more, so the old gf mc had to begged and be a good dog if she wants pleasure with mc, (she also learned the abilites of mc and the daughter dragon through sex) and then the mc also had children and the plan is included for both of the children of daughter dragon and ex gf dragon.
And thus mc lived a happy long pleasurable fun life, with his wife and his dog.
Thanks for reading and my bad with grammars. Pls ask if theres a question.

2023.06.07 12:03 Budget_Purple123 [F4M] first date / boyfriend

I am 18+ and all participants and characters must be 18+
First the awkward bit: I'm a male playing a female.Now to the fun bit. I'm looking for a male to roleplay with to become my boyfriend. It would start at the pre first date point.
How do we meet? Tinder, via friends, in a pub/bar, supermarket? You can be as boring or creative here.
How old are we both? Tall, short, large, slim? I'm open to all. I'm flexible on who I can play too.
This has can lead to a long term relationship or a one night stand or even a booty call.The options are endless, I don't mind you being creative as possible or as simple as you want. I'm fairly open to most ideas, but we can discuss kinks before we start.I like to use pictures from the internet as reference points.A little about me, I'm in my late 30's, professional, and missing something in my life. As I am working and have a personal life, I see this roleplay being an on going one, replying as and when we can. This also doesn't make timezones a problem.My writing length is short but descriptive. Usually 2-3 sentences and paragraphs when required. Prefer first person and " " when speaking. I tend to like a 70:30 split between story and smut.
One example would be: I'm a 28 year old professional woman who has recently split up with her boyfriend. I'm a good looking curvy woman who's low on confidence.I'm down in the dumps and looking for a rebound. I get setup on a blind date with an older dominant man. He knows about how to treat a lady in public. showers me with affection and gifts, but when the bedroom door closes, he becomes the dominant man that he is and treats me like the person I am .Ideas for scenes could include; shopping, restaurant date, pub/bar dates, and as things progress moving in together, going on holiday and even eventually cheating. I would want this to be a slowish burner over multiple sessions. Of course time skips would occur, but only have a good back story has been established.
Please PM if you are interested in this and have read it properly.

2023.06.07 12:00 RelativeWear4296 AITA for befriending my neighbour's daughter and answering her questions?

My wife (30F) and I (33F) recently moved to a new neighbourhood, with our little ones (4F and 6F). Our next door neighbour has 3 kids, two boys and a girl (12F Eve).
Eve eventually became friends with our daughters and they sometimes hang out. I also have a passion for gardening and Eve sometimes joins me for these gardening sessions.
During these sessions, we have conversations about everything and anything including her shool, friends, books, life, etc. She's become a guest we're very fond to have over, our girls also love her and overall she's a very well behaved kid. Her parents of course knew about this since day one.
Her mom came to our door, with the complaint that I was poisoning Eve's mind by telling her things that made her ask inaporopriate questions. (Her parents are muslims and I know for a fact her father is rather religious). They were upset that I told them about what hallucinations, illusions and delusions are and how the mind works. They said Eve was questioning the fundamental values of their faith now.
My wife thinks we're already the not so welcome lgbt neighbours in the community and my gardening sessions with Eve weren't doing anyone any good.
I of course said I wouldn't spend any more time with Eve if that's what the parents thought were appropriate but I also wonder if letting her join me and cause all this conflict was an AH move on my part. Especially because my wife already suspected we wouldn't be very warmly received by these next door neighbours.

2023.06.07 11:58 PinkNellie123 How to leave?!

Hey everyone,
My previous posts might give some insight into the shit show of my life, but anyway.
I decided to meet a friend at the weekend for some drinks - I dont think I have done this since I had my daughter - definitely not without him anyway. All day he was trying to bait me into having an argument. When he got home, he asked why I was all dressed up, was I going on a double date etc etc. I was picked up at 10.45pm - it wasn't a late one by any means.
He went out all day on Saturday leaving me at home with our 1 year old again. He turned off his online status on WhatsApp, 'because he doesn't want me checking up on him'. All day I was anxious and on edge.
This relationship is unbelievably toxic and not healthy for either of us. I recently applied to become a mental health First aider at work, and they are training me to do this. I love talking to people and really hope that I can be a good listener. His response this morning 'I don't even know why you're doing this, you won't be very good. You can't talk to people or help them.' It just made me feel like utter shit.
He called me a cunt this morning again after I told him I didn't have the money for a big purchase (a family purchase). Then he told me that if I didn't wind him up, then he wouldn't swear at me.
How do I leave? Some days I feel like I could be fine by myself. Other times, when it feels like it's becoming a reality, I end up feeling like I'm completely dependent on this man. No one else will want me or like the world is utterly terrifying without him. I start to feel like I'm having a panic attack or like I'm having an out of body experience. I cant sleep or eat.
So I just let him get away with all the crap to keep the peace so I don't have to go through this.
Please tell me if anyone else has ever felt this way? How do I get past this? I'm unhappy, but my brain is telling me I'll be unhappier without him, but logically that doesn't make sense.
Think I'm losing my marbles.

2023.06.07 11:58 Steampunk-1889 Éowyn and Éomer married cousins. Maybe they had a 'type'?

I realised yesterday that just as Faramir is the nephew of Imrahil of Dol Amroth, Éomer's wife Lothíriel is the daughter of Imrahil.
So the siblings of Rohan marry two people from Dol Amroth who are both grandchildren of Amrahil, Imrahil's father.
In The Steward and the King Faramir and Éowyn's hair, black and gold respectively, is seen streaming and mingling in the wind together. I wonder whether it looked similar when Éomer and Lothíriel were together. And how they met.

2023.06.07 11:56 -anklebiter- Back to school

I’ve had an awful morning with my (awaiting diagnosis) 5 year old boy. He always seems to dislike going back to school after having a break. The morning started ok, but then he refused to get dressed and refused to brush his teeth.. after I eventually managed to get both done to an extent (with him crying about brushing his teeth), I noticed he’d disappeared and got back into bed, hiding under the covers. By this point we are running late already and I still need to get his shoes on and get his snacks/drink packed. I told him he needs to get out of bed because we are going to be late, and that if he doesn’t start behaving himself, he will not be allowed to play on his games later. He then started screaming at me until he was red in the face and crying more. He was saying “you hurt me” even though I didn’t touch him (which is something he does all the time.. if he falls over, it’s “you made me fall over” even if I was nowhere near him). I was beginning to lose it by this point (I have anxiety and one of my things is being late), so I went downstairs and got his bag packed. He then came downstairs, still crying and when I eventually got him outside, he was screaming in the garden. I told him we had to be quick as we were going to be late and he stopped around the corner of the house and said he needed a tissue for his face. I told him he would have to wait until he got to school as I didn’t have any on me and he started following me saying that school doesn’t have any tissue. We then get to a small hill that has a tall ledge at the side of the path that merges with the hill. Every day to and from school, he walks up the ledge using me to balance- which is time consuming. This morning, he just stood at the bottom, waiting for me to hold him. I reminded him that we didn’t have time to do it today, as we were running late. He threw himself on the grass, crying and whining, refusing to move. I don’t believe in being physical with my son, so I would never drag him or anything. What works best is to walk off and when he realises you’re going, he will start to follow. I did just that and he started following, as soon as I turned around he stopped again, he kept throwing himself down crying.. when he got to the top of the hill, he was covered in dried grass. He then kept shoving me in the back from behind and told me I was the worst mummy in the world. By this point, I’m fighting back the tears.. we got close to the school and he just stopped walking again and had a scowling face on. After a few minutes he finally started to move and he held my hand to cross the road and I dropped him off at school.
It’s been an awful morning and I don’t know whether he is just being defiant or if the change in routine is affecting him. He’s usually pretty happy in the morning, for the most part. Now I’m sat here feeling truly awful because I didn’t sort it out with him before he went in to school :( his only interests are playing Minecraft, Roblox and watching tv. Games are the only thing he cares about having taken off him. Even then, sometimes nothing works! I’m so tired of everything being a battle but I don’t know what to do anymore.. he so stubborn. When we get into a good routine, he’s mostly ok, but now it’s back to school day and his daily routine has changed, it’s like all hell has broken loose. He shows no empathy either and never feels bad for anything, so never seems to learn. He is never sad.. either happy or angry/annoyed! Every little thing is hard work.. taking him to the park is hard work because he throws a huge crying tantrum when we have to leave, even with time warnings.. I just want to enjoy our time together but I’m dreading the summer holidays. I feel like I’ve tried so many different ways of dealing with things and nothing really works! He is getting worse.. the screaming is a newish thing he’s started. Sometimes he hits himself too! I feel like I don’t know how to act because we don’t have a diagnosis yet and I don’t know if I’m doing the right or wrong thing. I am generally very lenient with him and don’t know whether I’ve caused this myself!
Any advice would be appreciated!

2023.06.07 11:51 ProtectMyDaughters Baby mom is committing welfare fraud and trying to put me on child support. Philadelphia, PA.

Hello, all. I definitely need some legal advice before my child support hearing later this month.
So, I’m M26 a father of 2 (twins), and my baby mom is F23. We don’t get along. I got a girlfriend and well, some of you know the rest who can fit my shoes.
I got child support papers in the mail a few weeks ago. On a FaceTime call with my baby mom, I asked her why she sent me those. Her response was, “because you and your girlfriend be double teaming me”. That’s not true and I have piles of evidence to back that up. Confused, I had to start thinking there’s a way I can get out of this, although I’m not against it. I know she’s doing it in bad faith.
For one, she makes way more than me. I quit my career job to handle my child custody issues and now work a $16/hr job while she is a CNA making $25+ an hour. I know she has food stamps and I know she gets medical for our daughters, yet her income should’ve disqualified her from receiving state benefits. So, I get to asking her a few questions out of curiosity. Here’s the conversation.
Me: You got food stamps?
Her: For my kids ofc I do
Me: You filed in PA? (She just moved back to PA from FL)
Her: Yeah I have medical now and food stamps
Me: Good
Her: Why? What’s up?
Me: The medical is only for them?
Her: All of us.
Me: How tf u have that with a high paying job?
Her: You lie.
I’m thinking to myself, why is she trying to put me on child support when she makes more than me? I can barely take care of myself right now with leaving my career to handle this nonsense and allowing her to work more. She says it’s because CCIS has a waiting list, so she will get cash assistance which will automatically put me on child support, both of wish I don’t believe she needs. I’m not against child support because I know it will take care of my daughters. However, her intentions aren’t in good faith and are malicious, as a matter of fact.
She’s abusing the system while also trying to put me on child support when I am of more help without being put on it. Lying on your application to receive cash benefits when I am struggling more than her is beyond crazy to me. Should I present this screenshot when I go to my hearing? This girl is absolutely trying to fuck my life up. If she can’t break my relationship up with all of the harassment and threats my girlfriend and I have been subject to, then she’s going to go for my pockets to break me down.
I would feel bad be because the food stamps come in handy for my daughters, but she is definitely using child support as a weapon against me and I now have proof that she doesn’t need state benefits and therefore doesn’t need cash assistance which would garnish my paychecks.
Any advice would be helpful. Thank you.
