2023.06.09 07:00 Wrong_Organization13 The one-dimensional views team black fans have on team green.

I want to preface this by saying I don't mean to offend or be rude to anyone and this is just my thoughts. Of course, not every team black fan is like this, that is not what I'm saying.
So, as the title says I'm going to talk about the one-dimensional views team black fans have of team green.
I'm gonna talk about a few of the major show characters and events that team black thinks are just one clear thing.
I. Ser Criston Cole's hatred for Rhaenyra
The general consensus about Criston Cole is that he's still salty about Rhaenyra rejecting him so he wants to ruin her life. So, let's talk about the situation.
Let's just get one thing straight: Rhaenyra raped Criston.
So, Nyra goes back to the Red keep and tries to seduce Criston. It's very clear that Criston doesn't want to, he even tries to leave and Rhaenyra blocks him. She's laughing and seems to find It funny. Then, they have sex. (I know, this is a kind of bad description but I've never been goof at those)
A few of the arguments I see of this scene are:
"Criston was a grown man he could have moved her out of the way."
"He was smiling too and going along so it was consensual."
"Rhaenyra was a child, she couldn't have raped Criston, who was a grown man"
These are all problematic for multiple reasons.
First, let's talk about the power difference here. Nyra is a princess and Criston is the son of a steward. Nyra is the one who gives Criston his position and made him kingsgaurd(I also had an argument with this one person and they said that Nyra didn't make Criston Kingsgaurd, it was Viserys. I suppose he did, but Nyra chose Criston, and Viserys would have made anyone who Nyra chose into a kingsgaurd. So it's basically Rhaenyra who gave Crison his position). So Criston had no option to really refuse Nyra. Criston said it himself being a kingsgaurd is the only thing he has to his name. So when you think about that fact and the fact that Cole literally has nothing without Nyra, it become obvious that Cole would practically be forces into doing whatever Nyra says. Could he really say no to his boss and the person who gave him everything and could just as easily take it away? We have seen many times with Nyra acting arrogant and selfish, especially her younger self. That is apart of her character, people are supposed to acknowledge that(hell, Viserys even says it outright but no one likes him so they dont listen to him), but most see her as this feminist Icon that can do no wrong just bc she's a woman and she's "standing against the patriarchy"
Secondly, let's talk about the Argument that Criston could have just physically pushed her away: This kind of ties in with the power Nyra has over Cole. Criston could actually be killed for touching a princess or refusing her in general. So, could he really? Also the argument that it would actually harm Nyra to tell on criston is half wrong, she could say it was about something else and he pushed her away. Also, even if Cole tried to defend himself he would get killed( maybe by Viserys or Daemon bc they kill or threaten anyone who even remotely insults Rhaenyra...You could argue that Criston would be a Vaemond before the Vaemond thing happened) There's no winning for Cole. Not in any scenario.
I dont want this to be long so I'll stop it there but there's a lot of things I'm not saying, this is just the main thing.
2: "Alicent is not victim, Rhaenyra is"
I cannot begin to explain how angry I was when I saw this type of comment on tik tok.
They're both victims, but to say that one is a victim and one is not is just wrong. I also heard the argument that said "Alicent was a victim when she was younger but not anymore"....WHAT?????
That's just a disgusting thing to say. What are people even thinking?
Alicent has been manipulated, raped, groomed(Like Rhaenyra but ppl only seem to focus on Nyra being groomed and not Alicent) and much more. Alicent is a victim of everything wrong with westerosi society and its views on women. Her whole life is a prison, one that she can't escape.
Also, the whole thing with Nyra being mad at Alicent is very stupid. Alicent has explained many times that her father is not a good man and he will do horrible things to get what he wants. Nyra knows this. Sure, you could argue that Nyra was angrier about the fact that Alicent never told her but...would you? What would you even say? " dad is forcing me to try and seduce your father, and now we might get married." 🙃
I went a little off topic but I'm back to Alicent being a victim.
And to say that Older Alicent doesn't deserve as much sympathy just because she knows now what type of person Rhaenyra is and the threat she poses to Alicents children, is disgusting. It's saying just because Alicent isn't trying anymore to be Rhaenyra's bestie means that she's more hateful. I would argue that Alicent should be a lot meaner to Nyra than she is, I sure would be horrible to the person whose very existence is a threat to my children's life.
BOTH ALICENTS ARE VICTIMS JUST LIKE BOTH RHAENYRA'S ARE VICTIMS!!!! Don't just look pat Alicents trauma and abuse just because you don't like her, it's OK to not like her, but to say that she isn't a victim and Rhaenyra is is just a horrible thing to say.
3: Aemond stole Vhagar
This is probably the one I'm most passionate about. I have seen many people from team black say this also, so it isn't really a one dimensional view, I just wanted to explain it to the people reading this that actually think Aemond stole Vhagar.
This will probably be the shortest one because it's just common sense that a lot of people don't seem to have.
A dragon cannot be stolen. A dragon claims the rider not the other way around.
And vhagar was never Rhaena's, she never tried to claim her. Also, this is also kind of Rhaena's fault for not claiming Vhagar. I know, Rhaena was mourning the death of her mother, claiming Vhagar probably wasn't on her mind. But then she can't really be mad at Aemond for using his one opportunity to claim a dragon when she had days to claim vhagar( it probably took days to get the funeral in order and other factors).
A dragon cannot be inherited.
Now, saying Aemond stole Vhagar would mean something totally different if Rhaena was actually bonded to vhagar and Aemond still tried to claim Vhagar and Vhagar actually chose Aemond instead of Rhaena(Im not sure if this could happen, I havent read the books and im only going off of shoe Canon. So please, dont go "Well in the books...." no. Im talking about the show, not the book). It would the make much more sense for the whole fight and argument to happen, but Rhaena never tried to claim Vhagar. Also, who's to say Vhagar wouldn't have burned Rhaena to a crisp if Rhaena tried to claim her? Vhagar wanted Aemond and she let Aemond claim her.
Also Aemond deserved better, both older and younger. I love them both but Older aemond is kinda like...a war criminal sooooooo.
I hope this makes sense. I'm kind of ranting so I didn't really thing about my grammar so don't judge if it's really bad. ALSO, I didn't look over this so, if I made a mistake please let me know(not with every single grammar mistake bc that's annoying)
I'll probably get a lot of hate for this if a lot of people end up seeing it but I said what I said.

2023.06.09 06:47 uss_essex_CV-9 Why has the wiki gotten worse

Last time I did a proper playthrough of Terraria was about 6 to 8 months ago and back then pretty much regardless of what category of equipment I searched I was able to get a nice complete well laid out list on either the main Wiki or the fandom Wiki, now when I search for some categories of accessories a list simply does not exist apart from the list of every accessory on both sites, or when I search for summoner weapons I get one list that includes sentries, summons and whips in one list which makes it hard to compare two different whips together, or just in general providing less information than what I remember from 6 to 8 months ago.
And this is a general trend that I have noticed with wikis for all games across the board, the main Wiki and the fandom Wiki are just being less and less helpful to the point where I don't even know the best way to get information on a game anymore.
Does anyone have another method that is not spending literal hours watching YouTube videos trying to get the information I seek

2023.06.09 06:33 Similar-Shine-5571 Is it really this hard not being homeless?

Just a rant. Are we all really okay with working for crumbs just to yah know not starve or be homeless? By the time I pay all my bills I am left with almost nothing until the next paycheck. How could living paycheck to paycheck be healthy on any of us? This stress is going to kill me. Don't even get me started on having to rent nowadays. 700$ for a small 1 bed one bath apartment. I will never see a return on that. The system is set up for us to fail and I'm not sure who to blame. The top 1%? The government? Or is it us for allowing ourselves to become working poor slaves to the industry. (breathing heavy).... Okay rant over. Go about your lives.

2023.06.09 06:29 Some_Canadian_Man This subreddit has opened me up to a new way of thinking about society

Ok so... I was always been somewhat left-wing. Then identity politics reared its ugly head and it pushed me "right". Admittedly, I've said somewhat angry right leaning stuff on Redit, and objectionable things on Twitter, but in my heart I don't always believe it - sometimes its just an angry reaction against "woke" identity politics. Because I am frustrated waiting for things to get better.
Something about life has never sat right with me. You know - we go to work, we get paid a pitance compared to what the executives at the tops make (millions). We're all just waiting forever to climb this crappy career ladder; if you wanna climb you must put in twice the effort for a 5% wage increase. Fair? Hmm. Meanwhile taxes increase as public services decline, and the price of everything has jumped by 50%-100% over the pandemic. WTF?! Does the cost of producing fruit in California (that ends up in our stores) cost anymore than it did 3 years ago? No it does not! We're all just getting poorer so these greedy fuckers who own everything can just get richer. Why?! Do they not already have enough billions?!?!
Each generation seems to be more and more screwed:
It's all just bloody nonsense! What is the point of living this life, watching society tear itself apart over... trans people?! (christ!) meanwhile we ahhh and coo at homeless people starving in our streets. But not enough to actually help them.
Finally money is not just money. If someone earns $30/h, of which $10 goes to tax leaving $20/h, and they have to spend $1000 on rent, then they've just burnt through 50 hours of their life just to not be homeless! They're literally using up a large portion of their short lifespan each month for what we all agree is an essential need. Never mind all the other expenses, such as groceries, telecoms, medical, etc. We're all just living to die.
Anyway, looking forward to learning, what I have read in the wiki so far has resonated with me. But also realizing that identity politics itself is kinda a distraction endorsed by the powers-that-be. If people are busy arguing amongst themselves, they're not taking aim at those continuing to fleece us.
P.S. Someone help me select the correct flair for this post.

2023.06.09 06:27 Just-Strawberry4742 Credit card debt game plan advice please :)

Hi Reddit,
So I was irresponsible these last couple years as a student and got myself into some credit card debt. I have a game plan to get myself out of this but would like some input as well. If it sounds good, what I should change, etc. My current paychecks are usually 1700$ every two weeks. Rent and bill wise my husband pays most of those.
My bills are
-Internet 60$/month
-Car insurance 175$/month
-Car 370$/month
-Phone bill 115$/month
Other than these I usually buy groceries and gas is my only other ‘essential’ expense.
So here’s my debt
-Capital 1 $4,302.01 w 29.74% interest
-Apple $692.43 w 26.99% interest
-Wells Fargo $4,226.69 w 16.15% interest
The first two were applied for and used for during my last couple years of school and have the worst interest rates like ever lmfao. I’m surprised I even got approved. They were necessary at the time so I can only beat myself up about it so much.
My game plan is to pay 645$ a month to the capital 1 card which should be paid off in 8 months if all works out. My main priority is this card due to it being 0% interest till November 6th. I’m going to do 25$ weekly to the Apple Card which puts it in the area of being paid off in about 8 months as well. While paying these off I’ll make minimum payments to the Wells Fargo card.
Both those cards should be paid off in the same month as long as all goes well. Then I want to take both payments so 745$ a month and throw it at the Wells Fargo card which puts it being done in 6/7 months.
How does this sound? I’ve totaled up all my expenses and it leaves me with about 1,715$ a month for groceries, gas and other things and puts me at getting all this debt being paid off in a little over a year. Soon I’ll have student loans as well to deal with but want to take things one at a time until it gets to it.
I’ve heard about transferring to a 0% card but honestly I thought one of my cards had automatic payments set up and it didn’t and missed some payments. My credit score is 612 so not great. I also just got a car loan due to totaling my almost paid off car (thanks deer). So also just had a hard pull there. I got a 7.99% rate though on a used car for 60 months so not too shabby there lol. It could’ve been so much worse. I should mention as well I haven’t touched these cards in probably a year minus paying minimum. Anyways, thanks for the advice!!

2023.06.09 06:22 andreasvvs22 Any advice?

Lack of direction
20M I’m going to start off by saying I am very greatful for my current situation and don’t want to come off as a complainer. But I find my self wanting more and to continue making more money.
I work for a small company luxury retail doing sales. I love my job and know that I am very good at it. Along with the liberties uniqueness and experiences that come with it. I am very grateful to have been given the opportunity to be apart of said job and respect the people I work with. But I do not like the culture and highest forms of management all that much and feel like there is not a big chance for upward mobility or learning more such as marketing other than a management role which I really do not want. Being that job A is my main source of income and could be considered high ticket closing and appointment setting on a resume I feel like it is integral for me to be there for at least a year to have it on my resume.
I recently started a second job doing B2B outbound and minimal inbound phone sales while I’m away from school for the summer. for a small company that sells products to headshops, wholesalers, distributors and dispensaries. So far I have made almost nothing and invested all of my time off from job A into this for the last 4 weeks. I feel like this is not worth my time. But at the same time is it the experience that I think I might need so I can eventually parlay this into a BDR or SDR role for a tech or pharma or gaming industry and possibly finance much later down the road.
My end goal is to learn and be proficient in sales marketing and some form of finance and eventually run and operate my own business or operation.
People who have already done it or have any insight please I would appreciate it very much.

2023.06.09 06:22 KittenKabootle23 1 day in NYC with my husband and 5 year old-tips?

My family and I are heading to New York City towards the end of July for one day. We will be staying at a resort in Pennsylvania but heading to the city for one of those days. I have a list of things I want to see and some ideas. The biggest thing is I want to keep them within the same region, I know there will be a lot of walking, and we are planning on bringing an umbrella stroller for our 5-year-old. I would like to stay in the Manhattan area, see times square, Central park, Top of the Rock, we are looking at tickets for funny girl (btw does anyone know if a kid would be entertained?) I would love to walk The Highline, and possibly glance at Cornelia Street, yes I'm a Taylor Swift fan, no, I'm not going to go stalk her up old apartment... Also, does anyone know if the Harry Potter Store is worth the long line? Plus good (cheap) pizza! I know a few of these places could take an entire day themselves, especially Central Park.
I want to keep all three of us entertained, but I want to see as much as we can. And if possible, I would like to give her an experience that she would only get in New York and not here in Ohio. Does anyone have any suggestions on traveling around the city? Are the places I listed close to each other? I planned on doing a ton more research on reddit, but with the shutdown happening on June 30th, I don't know how much I can do before then. We had a thought of parking in Jersey and taking a train into the City and using the subway and walking the whole day. But I would like to see Times Square at night, and I heard it's in advisable to ride the train after 10:00. I want to keep my child safe, and to add I am legally blind and will be walking around with a cane, I feel like my husband is going to have to babysit both of us while navigating. Are there any resources or tips or anything that anyone can suggest? A parking spot? It would be nice to drive through some neighborhoods but we won't don't want to pay $50 to park for a day or something.
I don't know if this is still happening but years ago when I was researching New York City on this subreddit there was a company by locals where a local would take you and show you around the city, I can't remember much more than that does anyone have any idea what I might be talking about? Sorry that this post seems a little rushed, I just saw that Reddit is shutting down on the 30th, these subreddits are my main researching grounds and I wanted to make my first post as quick as possible. Thank you!

2023.06.09 06:21 seaurchin8 Competition for housing in August?

Hi all, I'm looking to move in to a new apartment in mid/late August, and it seems like the competition for housing around that time is really steep. Is it realistic to be able to secure an apartment around that time, or will I end up living in a hotel/Airbnb for a month? Is it best to start renting a place now and eat the cost for two months?

2023.06.09 06:20 exoticbunnis apartment complex charged my rent payment towards late fees i owed the previous month, now i’m in the eviction process (Texas)

I paid my rent last week on the 3rd in a total of $911. Today I get a notice on my door that says I have $713 worth of unpaid rent and that I have to vacate by the 11th. I’m in complete shock as my bank statement shows the payment I gave them and the payment receipt email my apartment complex gave me as well.
I look deeper into my portal and see the full receipt for that $911 payment and realize most of it went to NSF fees worth $300, general late fees, utilities, a little over $100 for mays rent (which is weird because I ended up paying that in full after it was late ?????), and over $200 for June’s rent.
Leaving me with $629.55 left to pay for June’s rent + an $83 late fee. I have no Idea what to do, I get paid weekly so my checks are small and I don’t have the money to pay it. I’m gonna get evicted and I fear I won’t be able to use my lack of knowing how my payment was being applied as an excuse in court. I’m 19 and this was my very first apartment, I have a rocky relationship with my mom and no other family members to live with, I’m completely devastated right now.
Any help is appreciated.

2023.06.09 06:19 bigmeatyclaw1414 Sleeping in my car tonight

I 21f kinda fucked up by letting my depression let me not work for so long. I had a $4k+ savings and didn’t work for 4 months and blew it paying my half of rent, gas, etc. My ex and I broke up and I had to move out of the apartment.
Now I don’t have enough money to move in anywhere and every job sounds awful. I have terrible social anxiety on top of it so starting any new job is hell. I just can’t believe I’ve let myself get to this point.
I just can’t find a job I want to work. I’ve don’t fast food, retail, factory. I hate it all and I don’t qualify for anything else, I can’t imagine what I’d even want to do. I know how to solve the problem but fuck, I’m so mentally unwell

2023.06.09 06:18 jsmith0715 How can I become closer with my stepmother, despite our shared difficult past while I was growing up?

I am not close to my stepmother in any way, shape, or form. Her adopted son (now my stepbrother) and I became friends in the 2nd grade, I introduced her to my father at his request, and they've been married now for almost 20 years. My childhood was chaotic and a little mm messed up, so I don't remember a whole lot of it, but I do remember that ever since she married my father, there are very few days where we weren't fighting on some level. Probably didn't help that my folks homeschooled us from 4th-highschool, so we never really spent any time apart from them. Heck, the only real socializing we got was around other homeschoolers or church kids around our age. But I digress, the main points are that my stepmother and I do not agree on a lot, we fought probably 80% of my childhood, and to this day I cannot bring myself to see her as my mother even now. We got into a fight a few days ago, first real one in almost 6 years after I moved out, and I admit, I was a little too P.O'd and raised my voice when I probably shouldn't have (again, probably). My dad's always tried to build this little make-shift family as close as a real one, but because of fights like this one in the past, she and I have never been able to emotionally connect. Lots of emotional manipulation, gaslighting, and favoritism on her end, though she'll never admit it. After this incident though, I feel a little guilty for the part I played in escalating the issue. Made me question if I've ever really given her a fair chance or if my guard always being up has ever been warranted. I've decided I want to try to give it a shot for my dad's sake, but after all these years, I don't know how. Any advice? And yes, I'll answer clarifying questions if anyone has any before giving their opinion.

2023.06.09 06:17 Strwb3rrym3rmaid Lease take over

We took over an elderly ladies lease last year because we were expecting a baby and got ourselves into a disaster. With our desperation to move we toured the place once and dubbed it perfect because it was the only place we got accepted.
for context I got evicted for having an emotional support animal that my roommate didn’t like in college housing, the told me to get rid of the dog or leave and so I left but unfortunately it counted as an eviction because I didn’t find anyone to take over the lease before I left. I ended up having to pay a years worth of rent and some legal fees so my account is in good standing but nobody seems to care. This unfortunately has ruined my life and no matter how much money we have for a deposit or how good our credit score is I get denied from everything. Not to mention we have my husbands dog who is a bully breed and many apartments have breed restrictions.
When we toured it the lady was in the middle of moving so there were boxes and stuff everywhere, when we moved in it revealed the horrible floors. We paid someone out of pocket to come clean them and he said the floor beneath the carpet was so damaged he almost didn’t want to do it. Not that it did much anyway because the smell of pet pee (this lady had four dogs and 2 cats) never left the carpet. The bathroom was filled with mildew, the windowsills are covered in mold. It’s a horrible place to live. We let our complex know and they said that they couldn’t do anything because technically we took over her lease and they don’t refurbish a place until after the lease has ended.
Not to mention our upstairs neighbors are drunks who throw up all over the complex and have tried to get into our apartment on multiple occasions on “accident”, people who let their untrained dogs loose and stolen cars that end up in our parking lot all of which has been reported to my complex with no reprimand. It’s like living in absolute white trash hell.
Our lease is finally up in November, and I’m so excited, but my concern is that all the damage still visible on the property will be some thing that we have to take on for future applications, since technically because of the lease take over it’s “ours”. It’s 100% not fair and it’s going to continue to ruin my life.
I don’t know what to do. does anyone know how to get out of something like this? Does anyone know what I can do legally to advocate for myself? My family deserves so much better than this, and I cannot raise my son in this community.
Pictures of what it looks like when I moved in : luckily, I took evidence. It was never us that made this mess.

2023.06.09 06:16 TheRealLocomotive Anything to keep in mind when buying a bike for a heavier guy?

I'm a heavier guy, around 300 pounds. I'm looking to get back to cycling as I just moved right next to a bike path (fully paved) and wasn't sure if I needed anything special to support someone my size.
I'm thinking of a hybrid bike as I like having the larger tires and flat handlebars. I'm also looking to spend about 500 pretax if possible as I've been riddled with injuries the past 3-4 years, including 2 knee surgeries so I don't want to spend too much right now if I'm not sure if I'll stick with it or get discomfort riding. I keep hearing to look for used bikes but I'm in Scarborough and I'm not sure where to go to buy since I want somewhere reputable so I don't get ripped off. Only place close to me I can see is D'Ornellas but I'm not sure if they sell used. Any ideas? I was checking some sportchek bikes, mainly the diamondback ridgeback bike but I'm not sure if sportchek is any better than Canadian tire.
Any help here would be great!

2023.06.09 06:15 Beginning-Sea-4991 SD 29 wants to move in with SO--feeling conflicted about my opposition

Throwaway because I'm confident both my SKs use reddit. SO and I have been together 7 years and we are both in our early 60s. I am a childless and SO has SD29 and SS26, both of whom have launched. I have decent and cordial relationships with both of them, although I definitely prefer and get along better with SD (SS is aloof and quiet, SD is more friendly and gregarious like her father). Both live hundreds of miles away. SD also has a husband and a child (F2). SO and I do not live together, but we have been talking about it. I have lived alone for ove 20 years, so I have been apprehensive about it.
The story here is that SD and her husband have been looking to move back to our city to be closer to family and friends. We live in a very HCOL area. SD is a teacher, and she recently told SO that she received a job offer from the very high school she attended, only 2 blocks from his house. There is no way SD and hubby could afford anything near the school at this time (there are no apartments close by either, the area is mainly single family homes). She asked if her and her family could live with SO for a few years in order to save money and time on commute. He said he would love that but he needed to discuss with me first.
And I don't really love that! And SO is not happy! And the worst part is I don't even feel like I have ground to stand on, because I do like SD and her husband, little of them as I know, and I love her sweet baby girl. I know that this would be amazing for SO because he would see his granddaughter every day, and his daughter as well, who he hasn't seen more than 3 weeks of time a year for almost a decade. He and I have our own lives though we meet 4-5 times a week and have plenty of sleepovers, and I know this would not affect him spending time with me in any degree, he promised and I believe him based on who he is and how he is. And SD is a clean, organized, respectful person who would cook for him (I try my best but I have places to be many nights, and SO does not really eat well when someone's not around to feed him). The house is large and has plenty of space, and I know SD and her husband would not want to stay long term, so they would legitimately leave once they could afford a house of their own. And I don't even live there! It seems like there is nothing for me to really complain about. And SO knows that, and is pushing hard, and seems so inclined to do it anyways. I even told my sister and she told me I was being ridiculous. But I just don't like it and it makes me feel weird. And I feel bad that it makes me feel so weird. Am I being irrational? Is there any way to work myself out of it?

2023.06.09 06:09 The_Alloquist [A Lord of Death] - Chapter 63 (Efrain)

[←Chapter 62] [Cover Art] [My Links] [Index] [Discord] [Subreddit] [Chapter 64→]
The students were quickly dismissed by the Mentor after Efrain declared a winner, who was desperate to do damage control.
“Okay, okay,” he said, brushing down his coat and coughing, “I see that we have failed to meet your standards. On behalf of the entire academy, I apologize immensely.”
Efrain, now that his temper had cooled, and upon realizing that he actually found the situation quite funny, put his hand on the man’s shoulder.
“No, no,” he laughed, “it was all merely an overreaction. Nicolo loved practical jokes. But, for all that, I doubt he would’ve continued teaching at this academy for years if he had no investment beyond it pranking me.”
And just like that, the man’s hope was restored.
“Yes, yes of course,” he said, “although I suggest you not tell what the inscription says to the other faculty. Some have spent… years on it.”
“No wonder, it’s a personal language we made up when we were youths. It’s a ramshackle, cobbled together thing, nigh-impossible to figure out, unless one was inflicted by the insight of drunken insanity.”
The man laughed, Efrain laughed, and he looked around at the academy’s towers and bridges.
“Well, he did fine for himself, clearly,” Efrain said, “even married an Eisen. Its good to know he spared some thought for me, even if it was to pull one over in death. Now I can’t even get revenge now. Clever bastard.”
“Yes, quite,” said the man, coughing, “now, I would be happy to show you to your office. It’s one of our finest.”
The whole situation wasn’t merely funny, he decided, it was hilarious. Unfortunately for Nicolo, Efrain still remembered some of his more embarrassing exploits. He wondered if the man had a biography that was taught - perhaps it needed some correction by a primary source.
“Well, lead on,” he said to the Mentor.
They proceeded from one of the lower bridges to the largest of the four connected towers. The panelled walls were both old and expensive, indicating that the school was indeed more than a joke Students of multiple ages and stripes went this way and that, some carrying books, others merely chatting among friends. Several more hallways and a staircase or two later, the mentor stood before a tall door.
“And here it is,” he said, puffing out his chest with pride, “one of our best.”
“That’s the second time,” Efrain noted, and the man self-consciously pushed open the door, revealing a narrow room.
It was comfortable, with a large desk taking up most of the space, a small bed and stove tucked into the corner. The wall behind the desk was mostly of modest bookshelves, stocked with tomes, some familiar, others not so much. A single, large window, open shutters flung outward, looked out toward the center of the city. The mentor looked around, and then at Efrain, clearly anxious to please.
“Wonderful,” Efrain said, “I hope I’m not depriving anyone of their space for my short stay.”
“No, no, not at all,” the mentor said, “in fact, your timing was fortuitous. One of the professors has elected to retire.”
“Ah,” Efrain said, sitting in the large chair behind the desk.
“You must be exhausted,” said the Mentor, hovering by the door, “I suppose I’ll just come and check on you in the morning. Supposedly your group is to attend the Festival as honoured guests.”
“News to me,” Efrain said, leaning back as he looked out the open window.
“Would you like a change of clothes, a meal, water to bathe in?” said the man.
“No, thank you,” Efrain said, “in fact, I wouldn’t mind a brief tour, actually.”
The man’s face lit up in response to the casual suggestion - clearly he took pride in the institution.
“Yes, yes, why of course, I would be happy to,” he said, “when would you like to begin?”
“Now,” Efrain said, getting up from his chair and moving past the man.
“Actually, now that I think of it, the last of the evening classes should be just starting,” said the Mentor, “would you like to sit in on one. It uses your books.”
A couple minutes, and Efrain was sitting in the back of a small room, dozens of fresh-faced students looking back between him and a professor at a lectern.
“So, as we discussed in the last class,” said the old man with a beard hanging over his considerable stomach, “actually, who would dare to tell me what is the ultimate goal of magic.”
Efrain was busy rifling through the provided textbook on the matter, his apprehension growing with every page that he passed. He’d forgotten just how bad some of his earliest work had been, and now was reliving his mistakes with vivid horror. Several hands rose, and a young girl who couldn’t be more than twelve was selected.
“Magic is a purest expression of the human,” she said, clearly reciting what she’d learned by heart, “it is an attempt to get away from the base naturalness of ourselves and transcend into something greater.”
Efrain stifled a groan as he heard his early and more poetic pondering on magics parroted back at him.
The class continued on until Efrain couldn’t stand it any longer. The professor was in the middle of explaining how magic could be derived from the environment, which was correct, but that was inferior in all cases to simply deriving it from oneself, which wasn’t. Efrain snapped the booklet shut as loud as he could, drawing the gaze of everyone in the class.
“Alright,” he said, getting up, “we need to stop. Stop. All of this is a mistake.”
The professor, quite confused, looked towards the mentor for any sign that he should intervene. The mentor merely shook his head as Efrain stalked towards the lectern.
“My good man, take a seat for a little while,” Efrain said, “there are some errors of mine I have to correct.”
He gripped the edges of the lectern, trying to decide how best to approach this, and begun by clearing his throat.
“Is knowledge truth?” he said, prompting a rash of confused stares.
He departed from the lectern, and walked in front of the students.
“Again, is knowledge truth? Is knowledge automatically, by definition, true?”
“Well, yes,” said a young man slowly.
“Ah,” Efrain said, rounding on him, “so, if I were to stumble on half a conversation a noblewoman has about some innocent meeting she had with a young man, mistook it for an affair, and reported it to her husband, would I be lying?”
“Well, yes, kind of?” said the boy, his brows furrowing. Several of the other students blushed at the impropriety of the statement.
“But that was using the knowledge I possessed, and if knowledge is truth, then where is the lie?” Efrain said, sitting on the edge of the table, “all I did was relay my knowledge, hence, relay the truth to my friend, her husband.”
“I- I-,” said the boy, “then you were misinformed.”
“Precisely,” Efrain said, taking the book from before him and walking back to the front of the class to raise it before the children.
“The truth cannot lie, by definition, but knowledge can, implying that it is a distinct entity from the truth,” Efrain said, as he rounded the lectern.
“Perhaps it is not a matter of relaying the truth,” called the mentor from the back, “but inferring the truth only from half-knowledge.”
Efrain pointed the booklet towards him.
“And that is why he is a mentor and you are still students,” Efrain said, “but what is the point I hear you asking?”
A few genuinely seemed to think he could hear their thoughts and shrank back from this strange, belligerent man.
“The point is this - the books you’re reading are nonsense. Inferences made from a tiny amount of knowledge, by an overconfident idiot.”
The professor started forward at this sacrilege of the texts, but the mentor held him back.
“Now, if you’re intelligent, which I’m sure all of you are, you should be asking about now, ‘how could he possibly know? Who is he to come into our class and start making such claims?’ That’s good,” Efrain paused, and pointed to the cover.
“Would someone care to read me the title of this particular text?” he said.
One of the students, another boy, looked down and began to say in a high, weedly voice.
“Basic Principles of Magic: A Treatise,” he said, looking up to see if he’d somehow passed whatever test Efrain was given him.
“Keep going young man,” Efrain said, nodding him on.
“W-written by Nicolo Eisen, Efrain Belacore, and Avidius Armsted, compiled by Nicolo Eisen and Avidius Armsted.”
“Which is to say, ‘principally written by Efrain Belacore and Avidius Armsted, with footnotes of historical nature by Nicolo Eisen.’ He was always more interested in the history anyways,” Efrain said, slapping the book on the lectern.
The children all looked back and forth between each other, trying to see if any had an understanding better than themselves.
“To answer your question,” Efrain said, “the reason I both possibly know and get to come into your class and make such claims is that I am the middle name on your textbook.”
The explosion of curiosity and confusion was a delight to Efrain, who held up the book to the ceiling, pointing to it.
“To be clear, my name, young ones, is Efrain Belacore, and I’m here to tell you why half of my book is wrong, and the other half is incomplete.”
The class sat in dumbfounded silence, trying to gauge what the appropriate response to such information could possibly be.
“Let’s start with something simple, though, young lady,” Efrain pointed to the young girl who’d given the first definition to start the class.
“Y-Yes, professor?”
“Restate your definition, if you’d be so kind,” he said, which she did word for word.
“I wrote that line when I was under the impression that magic was apart from the natural world,” Efrain said, “in the sense that it could be used to transform it, to add value to it, much like some artists will say that their paintings cut through to the soul of the subject, removing the mortal veil on top of it or some hogwash like that.”
Efrain walked in front of the class.
“We are all part of the natural world, even if we strive to rise above it, whatever that means,” Efrain said, “you get cut, you bleed, you do that enough you die, your body returns to the earth, and so on and so forth. Magic is an extension of all those natural processes, not something apart from it. So, young men and women, do not spurn the world in the pursuit of magic.”
Efrain spied a beautifully made pin, stuck in the hair of a young woman.
“Excuse me, could I borrow that for a moment?” he said, gesturing to the pin.
“Uh, y-yes, sure,” she said, hastily pulling out the pin and letting her hair fall around her shoulders as she presented it to him.
“Thank you very much,” he said, as he held up the pin.
“Right, do not spurn it in the pursuit of magic, rather, embrace it. Seek inspiration in it,” Efrain said, focusing on the butterfly motif.
Again, unbidden, the memories of exploding light and claps of sound.
Copies of the exact butterfly carven on the head of the pin streamed out, following trails of light to explode into pinwheels of light. The children shrieked, at first in fear than in delight as the show continued, and Efrain handed the pin back to its owner. She looked at the pin in what seemed like awe, checking it over for any alteration.
“The pin is intact,” Efrain said, “like I said - inspiration. I had no need to change it.”
The mentor was by his side, clapping at the show.
“I say, marvellously, marvellously done,” he said, “a finer display of magic I’ve never seen. You truly are a master.”
“If that passes for a ‘fine display’, mentor, you are easy to please,” Efrain chuckled, “now, I suggest we leave the poor professor to his work.”
“Oh, I don’t think so,” the Mentor said, “after all, you’ve just ruined the integrity of the text he taught from! Students, you are dismissed from your studies for the day. Emilio, take a break for tonight, me and master Efrain have some discussions to have.”
It crossed Efrain’s mind that he might’ve just signed up for some extensive work in the near future. This however, was his academic integrity, and he wasn’t about to let those notes be his legacy, if he was going to have one. They took up the conversation in the hallway, leaving the students filing out behind them.
“That was simply incredible,” the mentor said, “I’m shocked that you were able to do it off the cuff. Just like that.”
“It was nothing,” Efrain said, “and that’s not self-praise, mentor. If you’re not able to do simple illusions of light like, then ‘my’ books have led you astray.”
Efrain stopped to look out through a window, seeing the central pyramid and its rooftop garden. “Though that’s not entirely fair to Nicolo and Armsted. I’ve been travelling and studying for nigh-on two centuries since I left. I’ve learned much more than what they were left to work with.”
When Efrain turned back to the man, he found that he was bowing low.
“What are you doing?”
“Oh please, master Efrain,” said the man, “please, led us back to greatness.”
“You are truly, the most knowledgeable, the most revered, the most brilliant-”
“Stop that,” Efrain said, “I left my patience for flattery about a half-thousand miles west. Say what you mean, plainly.”
He tried to tell himself that was the truth, but he couldn’t deny it made his chest swell to hear such things, especially after so long on his own.
“We need you,” said the man, astonishing Efrain as he wiped tears from his eyes, “we are but children, stumbling around-”
“Do you do this with every guest?” Efrain said, trying to tamp down on the delight he felt.
“What? N-no. Be the mentor! I will gladly renounce it, if you are there to take the place. Lead our school, master Efrain!”
Efrain held his face as he considered what the man had just said.
“No,” he said, quashing the image of mentor Efrain squarely and firmly right there.
“B-but why?” the mentor blubbered, “anything you want, I’ll give it to you, anything! Name it and-”
“But I will rewrite those gods-damned books you have. Fill them with my current knowledge, which is far superior than that poetic dreck that I made back in the day,” Efrain said, “I would not be able to live with myself, if I left you with that swill.”
“Oh thank you! Thank you!” said the mentor, clasping his hands.
“Now, let’s get back to my office,” Efrain said, “I’m finding myself quite tired of this whole affair.”
“Yes, yes, of course,” said the man, straightening himself and gesturing the way.
“Tell me,” Efrain said, “your begging seems to indicate that the academy’s future is dire.”
“Oh, it’s bad,” sighed the man heavily, “we simply haven’t been able to produce things that are of much use. It is our shame, and as such, we’ve moved much of the studies to other, more practical subjects. Maths, history - magic is quickly becoming a pure pursuit of knowledge. The Eisen matriarch seems not to mind, but Poutash, and many of the established houses, well…”
Efrain nodded as he climbed the main stairs, shuffling by students. He tried to ignore the irrational guilt that plagued him. He’d just managed to put a lid on it as they reached the office, where within he sank into the chair. The mentor stood nervously by the door, almost like an attending student, not the director of a school. Efrain wondered how he got the position in the first place.
“Well, that was enlightening,” Efrain said, “I’ll retire now, I think.”
“Of course,” said Avencia, “yes, we shall leave you to it. I will have dinner sent up.”
“No need, we had some in the city,” Efrain said, “I don’t eat all that much anyways. Tell me, are there any particular teas you’d recommend? Local speciality or imported, I don’t care.”
The man thought for a few moments.
“I would have to ask someone else, but I will send up a set as soon as possible,” he said.
“Oh, and the books,” Efrain said, reclining back on the chair and looking out the window.
“Which books?” said the man excitedly.
“All of them. Any of them that bear my name,” Efrain said, “In fact, just send me all your core texts for magic. If I need any sort of historical references, I’ll make up a list while I’m reading them.”
The man practically stumbled over himself, thanking Efrain profusely and indicating that the entire curriculum would be sent up, as well as paper and ink. When the door shut, the quiet seemed almost unnatural to Efrain after the busy day he’d had. He picked up a book from the shelf, some piece of Karkosian history from a man he’d never heard of.
He sat back down in the chair, and curiously, he found his eyesight beginning to swim as he tried to parse the page. His body felt… heavy, exhausted even. He tried to resist it, tried to fight it as the book fell open on his lap, but his vision darkened, and soon Efrain had drifted off to sleep.

"Are you sure you want to delete "The Tenant" from your filesystem?" I want to be 100% sure it is deleting the item I want deleted. Seems like an ez ask.

2023.06.09 05:40 Unlikely-Lion-6150 Is this bullying?

My best friend of eight years moved overseas to study abroad. Whenever she returns, we would always make time to catch up and I’ve always felt that I could trust her like a sister.
I didn’t like the school I was attending at that time and so I confided in her. She convinced me to join her at her new school and everything worked out.
My best friend has been in the school a year prior to me joining and kept company with a group of friends. Naturally, when I was in the picture, I became apart of the same friend group and we had fun together. I was able to effortlessly fit in despite being the “new girl” because I was surrounded by people who felt very familiar to me.
However, a few weeks ago, we were all hanging out together when I felt really isolated from the group. I asked my best friend if everything was okay and she gave me a cold shoulder. Her response was that she didn’t want to talk about it to avoid ruining the rest of the outing.
When we returned to school, the whole friend group was avoiding me and disregarded my presence. I remember this particular instance when I placed my tray of food down at the lunch table and the three of them immediately up-and-left. I thought they must’ve been busy so I joined another group of friends. But 5 minutes later I turn my head to see that the three of them sat back down to chat with the rest of the friend group who had just turned up for lunch. This went on for a few weeks.
At that time, my priority was fixing the conflict between my best friend and I. I talked to her face to face and she told me the things that I did that made her uncomfortable sometimes. After we made up, she explained to me what the rest of the friend group has been saying about me, a bunch of unnecessarily hurtful things and that they wanted me to be the one to initiate the conversation about the whole “excluding me” thing.
I finally mustered up the courage and the next day during lunch, I sat with them and waited for the right moment before bringing up the topic. I carefully mentioned that I was aware that there were some issues within the friend group and would like to hear anything that they had to say to make up for my past mistakes and never repeat them again. The main ringleader, who began all the gossiping, snickered at my asking and shrugged it off by saying “I’m in a really good mood now and don’t want to ruin my lunch. We’ll talk about this later.” I knew that they couldn’t take me seriously.
That night, a few of them invited me to join a call. Over the phone, they couldn’t find the courage to explain what exactly was the cause of the problem and the only thing the ring leader said was, “Speaking on behalf of myself, I just don’t think you and I are compatible. We need a break.” After the call ended, the rest of the more passive friends in the group texted me saying that they recognised that what they did was wrong and they hope we can still remain friends even though the ring leader “kicked me out of the group.”
After this whole ordeal, I don’t know what to do or how to feel because although my best friend and I made up, she was present every time they were talking behind my back and in the end she chose to stick to that friend group during school hours and finds me only after the bell rings.

2023.06.09 05:36 RipCityBlazn GRANDMA'S CEILING PARTIALLY COLLAPSED Oregon

My grandma's ceiling in her retirement facility partially collapsed. There had been a leak she reported in Dec. 2022. May 2023 is when this occurred. They moved her to another apartment and had their rather small maintenance person assist with moving a couple things to the new apartment.
They're telling her to move the rest of her stuff by 6.18. There is possible mold/mildew exposure. The repair will likely not be done for some time. We got a renter's handbook about repairs and mold from the legal aid she contacted when this occurred.
My question, is the landlord responsible for accommodating her moving costs? They're telling her to do it.
Also, the apartment they moved her into is a 1bd where she came from a studio. They want her to pay $100 more a month in rent.
