[FANFIC] The Children of House Rah'uuthli

World News Reddit - Fri, 05/04/2018 - 23:58

Summary: Three events in K'Thriss and K'Thedral's Childhood, from her perspective

I

Thedral had been ignoring the presence outside her room for a while, but it was becoming a distraction. Whoever was lurking there wasn’t going away, and the almost imperceptible noises they were making were fraying her nerves. She got up from her desk and swung open the door. Thriss was standing there, hand raised as if considering whether to knock.

“Greetings, sister. I hope you’re having a pleasant evening.” He’d always been deferential, but it had escalated to a ridiculous degree since their father’s death.

“How long have you been standing there?”

“Ah, well, ah…”

“Nevermind, just come in.”

She ushered him through the door and closed it behind him, but he just stood a few steps into the room, glancing around nervously. Lately he seemed hesitant to do anything without being asked, as if a single wrong step could lead to his death. Thedral sat down on her bed and picked up an old book.

“Sit here.” She said.

He settled down beside her, looking very young. They were both too old for storytime, but it was a comfortable little piece of nostalgia. She turned to her favorite tale: Kyorlin and the Lady of Fire. Thriss claimed it was his favorite too, though she was never sure whether he said so just to be agreeable. He did a lot of things just to be agreeable.

She read aloud as she had so many times before. A young drow girl traveled to the hated surface to free an artifact from the slow and unsubtle hands of men. She had many adventures on the way, and finally returned with a new school of magic to teach her sisters. There was no test of cruelty, everyone who got murdered was human, and it ended with the heroine setting up a grand library and a mystic order.

Her grandmother had said it was the story of their house’s origins, but she didn’t really believe that. It was nice to pretend, though. One of House Rah'uuthli’s many flaws was its daughters’ predilections towards arcana rather than the pure divinity of Lolth. It was interesting to imagine a past when they had achieved greatness and been celebrated for it, when they’d been free to study as well as worship.

The story ended and silence grew between them. They hadn’t talked much recently, even before their father’s death, and certainly not after. They’d both tried to pretend that everything was normal because it was, right? This was just the kind of thing that happened.

“Do you think, when I grow up, I’ll be… insufficient?”

There it was.

“Thriss.”

“If I am I want to be ready for it. Like father was. He wasn’t scared.”

Thedral wasn’t certain how to answer, because truthfully there was no guarantee he wouldn’t suffer the same fate. A comforting lie would do him no good, either. Distraction and ambition were the best he could hope for.

“Obsessing about it won’t help. It’s better to focus on your studies and your magic.” She said.

“I guess.” He said, staring at the floor.

“I hear you’ve been working on something. Let me see it.”

She could tell he didn’t want to let it go, but he was nothing if not obedient and she had given him a command. He raised his hand up and focused, producing a single glowing orb hanging in the air. He conjured another and another, tossing dancing lights into the corners of the room.

“Nicely done!” she said. “Here, let me show you something.” She conjured her own set of lights, gathering them together in the shape of a small girl with a twirly skirt. The figure jumped and danced across the floor. “See if you can get yours to come together like this!”

His lights began to drift toward the center of the room, flickering slightly. One began to wander off and when he focused to bring it back on course two others started to drift away.

“I’m not good enough.” His orbs began to flicker and fade. “I can’t.”

“Yes you can.” She said. “You’re as good as I was at this age.”

It was only sort of a lie. He had raw talent but lacked confidence, and now he had this new fear hanging over him, disrupting his concentration. She watched him regain focus, and this time the lights came together to form a blobby but somewhat humanoid form.

“I did it!” he said, and his glow man raised its arms in an echo of his victory.

“See, I’m always right.” She said, throwing an arm around his shoulders. Her glowing dancer mimicked the gesture. She felt him relax slightly.

“Magic will always be there when you need it. Knowledge is the one thing that cannot betray you.”

He nodded seriously, and his glowing figure grew brighter and more coherent as he sent it dancing across the floor.

II

A new book and an empty house – it was going to be a good day. Thedral was supposed to be focused on her prayers but practicing a few evocations wouldn’t hurt anything - as long as nobody found out, anyway. Her father’s old study was the best place to practice in secret. No one was supposed to acknowledge its existence, let alone go in there, so no one would notice if it got collaterally exploded.

Opening the door, she was confronted by a vision of her father. It took her a moment to realize the figure seated at the desk wasn’t some specter or temporal echo – it was Thriss bent over a notebook, totally focused on his work.

“What are you doing here?” she asked.

He jumped out of his chair and started to mumble some nonsense excuse. She crossed the room in a few quick strides, grabbing the book out of his hands. She had flipped it open and was about to begin reading when something gave her pause. Thriss was cringing away and averting his eyes, like he did with their mother. When had that started? She snapped the book closed and held it out to him, prodding him gently in the chest with the tome when he didn’t immediately reach for it.

He took the book gingerly, refusing to look at her.

“What is going on?” she asked, waving her hand in front of his face. “Did spiders lay eggs in your brain?”

“I’m sorry” he said. “I’m trying not to…”

“Not to what?”

“Not to… Mother said I tempted you with the sin of mercy. I’m sorry. And now unless you tell her about this, I’ve done it again.”

That made sense. As Thriss had grown to resemble their father more and more, their mother had been more exacting in her demands and crueler with her punishments. The night before, Matron Ysildrith had sent Thriss to his room without dinner for the fifth night in a row, citing “insufficient devotion” during the evening prayer. Later that night Thedral had challenged her mother’s obsession with his flaws. She tried to make it sound cold and logical, arguing that it was negatively impacting his magical development - the one thing that might make him useful to the family someday. Ysildrith had listened calmly, and Thedral had let herself believe she’d been convincing.

In reality she’d only made things worse, and now she was complicit in whatever hideous punishment Thriss had received this morning. He was probably convinced she’d set him up deliberately. It was the kind of thing drow sisters were supposed to do.

Now he stood by the desk, looking doomed, hugging his book tight to his chest. She was curious about its contents, but it was too late to ask. Still, at least she could make it less likely that he’d get caught doing… whatever it was he was doing.

“I’m not supposed to be in here either, but you have to know what mother would do if she caught you. Work in your room, keep the door locked.” She didn’t even try to keep the anger out of her voice.

Thriss nodded, eyes still averted, and began to walk towards the door. She put her hand on his shoulder and made him turn to face her.

“You deserve your secrets, but you cannot be this stupid about guarding them.”

She let him go. Hopefully he understood that she wasn’t going to tell their mother about this latest transgression. She wanted to go further, to tell him it was safe to talk to her, but that would be another mistake. She hadn’t betrayed him, but others would, and it was better if he didn’t learn to trust. Paranoia would keep him alive, at least for a little while.

It bothered her that he was afraid of her, though it shouldn't have. Brothers were an ideal subject on which to practice cruelty. It would be so easy to hurt him – just telling her mother she saw him in the study would trigger months of reprisals. If she initiated the punishment herself it’d be even better, evidence of her superiority and readiness for leadership. But she was a flawed person, and these virtues did not appeal to her. She liked having Thriss around. Perhaps it was because he was useful; his transgressions made it easier to hide her own lack of devotion as she coasted through cleric training with the bare minimum of effort. It was a reasonable explanation, but it was just another lie. Thedra had always been very good at lies. It was probably her only virtue.

She did a quick search of the study to ensure Thriss hadn’t left any evidence behind, but he’d been meticulous about that at least. She decided to follow her own advice and study in her room rather than this twice-forsaken place. As she passed Thriss’s door she tried the handle and was satisfied to find it locked. If she couldn’t protect him she could at least teach him to protect himself.

III

It was late enough that the entire household was asleep when Thedral wandered into the larder, hoping for a cold slice of eel pie. She swung the door open to see Thriss shoving items into a pack.

“What are you doing?” she asked, “No wrong question, I can clearly see what you’re doing. Better question: where in the seven hells do you think you’re going?

He stood there in silence for a long moment.

“Nowhere.” He said.

“Brilliant idea. Do you have a manor house in nowhere? I’ve heard the food is spectacular there.” She put her face in her hands. “How are you this unwise… seriously, where would you even go? Are you going to try to make your way to Chaulssin, or wait… do you think you’re going to the surface?”

“I can’t stay here.” It was as good as an admission.

“If you go she won’t let you come back, no matter what you achieve on this moronic quest. You know that, right? There will be no parade, no glorious magical library, no circle of sisters. You are not Kyorlin. This is not that story.”

“I don’t plan on coming back.” He said.

“The surface is a land of trials, and it kills those who do not have the will to survive and the power to dominate. You have neither. What if I tried to stop you? Could you kill me?

“No.” He said, and she could feel the shame and fear pouring off him.

“Deference is a good tactic down here.” She said, trying to be comforting. “But on the surface people will hunt you and use you and throw you away. They do not understand complex things. They cannot be reasoned with. Your obeisance will brook you no quarter. You will be destroyed.”

“Sometimes that’s just what needs to happen.” He said, softly. “I’m pretty sure it’s inevitable.”

“Thriss…” she said, unable to keep the pity out of her voice. “You’re clever, but you have no guile. The world will devour you without our protection.”

It was the wrong thing to say. She knew full well the misery her mother’s protection had entailed, and Thedral had been forced to keep her distance these last few decades. Openly showing kindness to him had proven dangerous for them both, time and time again. She realized now how utterly alone he must have felt. He didn’t have any friends that she could recall, and their house was too out of fashion for him to gain any profitable connections going forward. There was no hope for him in this city.

“You’re right of course. I’ll just go back to my room and forget all about it.” His voice was calm, but was there a hint of sarcasm behind it? Defiance, a bit of acid bite? It almost made her smile.

He didn’t bother to pretend to follow up on his bluff. He didn’t put anything back or move towards the stairs to the kitchen. Instead he turned to look at the shelves, waiting for her to either do something or leave.

She sighed and grabbed a bottle of mushroom wine to take back to her room. It would probably be for the best if he died on this idiot journey – his suffering would at least be over then – but the thought of him being well and truly gone filled Thedral with a deep and inexplicable sadness.

“Thriss” she said, but he did not turn to look at her. “Try not to get devoured.”

It was the closest she dared to a goodbye.

Does it do wifi calling? How is it in Europe with T Mobile?

World News Reddit - Fri, 05/04/2018 - 23:54

Hello everyone! I am shopping for a new phone (I'm sure you get these posts a lot). I have a phone from 2012, and the array of features in today's phones is dazzling and a little overwhelming. Portrait mode? Fingerprint recognition? More than one gigabyte of RAM??? I mean, whoa.

At this point, basically anything I could buy will be an upgrade. But I like the Essential because it's built on ideas that I like--update, not upgrade, and systems that "play well with others". I'm a big fan of tinkering, and am willing to roll up my sleeves a little bit to get my tech to work the way I want. I don't need my camera to take the world's best pictures--if it can do pictures that are pretty on average with current phones, that's fine. 13 megapixels is a big upgrade over 8, they tell me. ;)

Here's the deets. I'm on T Mobile, and there's no signal at my house. I use wifi calling and texting there, but otherwise I'm on the 4G network. I'm also going abroad to Europe (Switzerland specifically) for the better part of a year, and am wondering if any users could chime in on that. After that, I'm returning home to LA.

TL;DR will anything about this phone be a bummer compared to a 2012 phone, and can I do wifi calling on T Mobile with it?

Thanks so much!!

Please Help Guys

World News Reddit - Fri, 05/04/2018 - 23:52

I don’t even know if this post is appropriate or not for this sub. I am sorry if it isn’t. I don’t know where else it would fit but I do promise it is a huge part of my spiritual journey right now. Please bear with my horrible writing. I am doing the best I can.

I would say that back in March I had an awakening of sorts. I took a small road trip to where I had just traveled 2 days prior. Nothing as far as the landscape was the same. for example, the mountains were grander, trees looked older and the city seemed way more run down and older than the first trip I had taken. A road sign literally had bullet holes in it. I live in the southwest.

That is barely scraping the surface with what I experienced. The little town seemed huge suddenly. More industrial. It was life changing to say the least. After spending the night in a hotel, I drove back home. It seemed at that time I was in a 3rd reality. It was as if the reality of both of the trips came together as one. The sign with the bullet holes was new again. Mountains and trees remained grand and numerous. I am not sure if that makes any sense but it’s the best I can explain it. The whole drive home I was in awe of the beauty of the area. It wasn’t a case of just not noticing before. On the first trip, my husband and I were talking about the landscape pointing things out as we went. I know in my heart that what I saw when I went again was new to my eyes. The trip home seemed to take longer then before. I was wondering what I would see in my small home town that was new. I drive the stretch of road I was on at least once every month or so with my kids. We talk about everything outside the car. This time it the rural towns stretched farther out. I noticed changes right up until I drove into the downtown area of the small town I live in. Everything there remained unchanged. The mountains surrounding us however were majestic. I had no idea we lived in such a mountainous area.

I tried explaining to my husband what was going on. He claimed to have noticed some changes too but didn’t have an examination. His theory is if it isn’t bothering our everyday lives, why worry about it. The world is always changing he says.

A couple weeks ago I noticed that the mountains were back to being less majestic and I cried wishing I could go back the the reality of before. My husband and I went for a hike and I explained to him overlooking our town what it had looked like for me. The next say while we were driving he pointed at our most prominent mountain saying “look, it’s huge again” and it was. But only few moments.

The Last week I noticed the mountains have returned to their glory. I really do life in such a beautiful place. Another occurrence has me worried though. I walk all around our little downtown area frequently. Almost every day. I love looking at all the historic architecture and just taking everything in. Sometimes it walk late at night and I never ever feel unsafe here. It’s a very small community and practically dead come 8- 9pm. Three days ago I went for a walk during the day with my son and his friend. I noticed how run down everything seemed compared to just a couple days prior. It was mind boggling. Once manicures yards and perfectly painted houses were sparse or overgrown and the paint was peeling. Another observation was the neon colors some had painted on their houses. I walk the same streets routinely. Everything has changed.

As I am typing this now, I hear loud engine and sirens outside of my window. It is Friday night but these just seem very excessive for this area.

I know part of my awakening was for me to notice the true beauty in our world. In the everyday. I get so much joy from being outside and one with it all. I just don’t know what to make of these changes. It’s not like they scare me, I just am the type to seek answers to everything. Any insight would help.

And please, before you say I am crazy just please consider everything I have said is very REAL for me.

Thank you for your time

[Guide] Automatically Renaming PBP Archived PSX Games

World News Reddit - Fri, 05/04/2018 - 23:47

I can't tell you where to get these PSX games already in the PBP format. So don't ask where to find them and don't say where to find them either.

Now then, I made this for anyone out there looking to both save space and make switching game discs easier. The PBP archived ROMs you may find on the internet generally have EBOOT.PBP as their name. In an attempt to save lots of people time, I have gone and renamed every PBP game from a common source to Redump's naming convention (when possible), then made a DAT that will allow the process to be automatically repeated for anyone that uses it.

Anyway, I hope the following guide is helpful to someone.

How to Automatically Rename PSX EBOOT.PBP

This was written with the idea you are on a Windows PC. Sorry, but I don't know anything about any other OS.

  1. Download THIS DAT.

  2. Download CLRMAMEPRO.

    Personally, I'd get the ZIP and 64-bit version, but that's because I like to put programs like this in a specific place and have a 64-bit OS.

  3. Find PSX games in the PBP archive format and download them.

    I advise you only download one right now and download any others after you've verified that you have the right common source.

  4. Uncompress the games into individual folders, then delete the compressed copies as you no longer need them.

    They'll probably be in the RAR format. I advise 7-Zip, PeaZip, or WinRAR to uncompress them.

  5. Launch "cmpro64.exe", or "cmpro.exe" if you are on a 32-bit Windows OS.

  6. Read the Welcome screen if you want, then hit "OK".

  7. Click on "Add DatFile...", select the "PSX2PSP ISOs.dat", click "Open", then click "Ok" on the next window that shows up.

  8. Select the new "[NEW DATFILES]" entry, select PSX2PSP ISOs, click on "Load/Update", then click on "Default".

  9. Click on "Settings", make sure you are set to "ROM-Paths" in the upper left corner of the new window, click "Add...", make a folder wherever you want your renamed EBOOT.PBP files to be put, select the folder you made, click on "OK", then close the "Settings" window.

  10. Click on "Rebuilder", click on the "..." next to the empty "Source" field , select wherever it is you uncompressed the PSX games in the PBP format, then click on "OK".

  11. Disable "Compress Files", enable "Remove Matched Sourcefiles", click on "Advanced...", disable "Additionally test SHA1/MD5 for matches", then close the "Advanced Rebuilder Options".

  12. Click on "Rebuild..."

    How long this process will take depends on your computer's hardware and how many games you are processing, but in general it will take a while.

  13. Now you can either go to wherever you wanted your renamed EBOOT.PBP files to be put and remove them all from the folders that were created (easily done using Windows Search, putting a period in as the search term, selecting all the ".pbp" files, then cutting and pasting them to the parent folder), or you can keep them that way and continue on to the next optional step that requires the PBP files to be in folders.

  14. (Optional - This is for collectors.) Switch over to the "Scanner" (you can quickly switch to it using the circles in the lower right corner of the "Rebuilder" if you are still there), make sure you are currently only set to "Check" and not "Fix", then click on "New Scan...". What this does is checks to see which ROMs you have and which ROMs you don't have, which is only good if you are looking to get an entire library.

Missing from Common Source Used Above

There are probably more missing (especially Japan), but these are the one I felt like mentioning since I have them in bin & cue (as well as a couple other combination of files) and really don't want to expand this list further.

Builders broke my mini McMansion

World News Reddit - Fri, 05/04/2018 - 23:46

Ok, it's not really a McMansion, just a cookie cutter tract home. (The hipster part of town would call it a McMansion, though.)

A few weeks before we were supposed to close, they realized someone had driven over the buried sewer pipes before the foundation was poured. They had to dig huge trenches in my almost-finished house, including pulling up my almost-real wood flooring and jackhammering through the foundation all the way to the dirt and the broken pipes. The whole first floor looks like it's been bombed.

Closing has been put off another month, we learned this week. I'm stuck in a tiny "luxury" apartment with half my shit packed.

Also I can't sleep and my husband is snoring.

Bonus first world problem: I'm going to miss the Memorial Day sale on fridges at Best Buy because of the new closing delay.

(I was going to post this to to /offmychest, but it doesn't seem serious enough for that.)

No one really loves me

World News Reddit - Fri, 05/04/2018 - 23:45

I’m almost 16 now and I’ve never even talked to a guy, let alone had a boyfriend. But this rant isn’t all about guys. It’s also about friends and family. Ever since I was a child, my mum always went on holidays with her new boyfriend and his kids. I always felt like she was nicer to the kids and spent more time with them more than she would spend time with me. My dad has schizophrenia and he takes medication which makes him sleep a lot and he can’t handle change. Which meant I always had the same routine everyday. I’m sure he loves me, but it’s really hard to express his love to me and have social interaction with me. It’s not like he is semi-retarded, it’s just that it’s so stressful for him to do so. I also didn’t see him much, as he was always gone in the mornings at work and arrived home late. I don’t go to the best school in the world and people at my school were either horribly mean or dumb as fuck. I don’t like to be picky, but it really hurts me on a mental level when I have to deal with dumb people or rude people. But the only thing I can do, is deal with it. I remember starting year 7 and I was in the smartest class in the grade. My 2 friends was this girl named Olivia who was also in my class and was semi-retarded as she did drugs. My other friend was a girl named Jessica who didn’t pay much attention to me and worshiped Olivia. Since then those are really my only friends and I really fucking hate them. All through my life I have been quite anti social, maybe I learnt it from my dad but I always felt a bit mature for my age. It’s not like I don’t like people, I just feel like no one shares the same interests as me and gets along with me well (e.g plays video games does taekwondo etc) Or has something at least mildly in common with me.

I feel really lonely a lot of the time and that I’m not a loveable person because I’ve been fucked over so many times it must be my fault by now. Because if it wasn’t my fault I could probably assure you that one person would be my actual friend but no one is.

I’m sorry if this post didn’t make sense, I don’t even think this makes sense to myself.

Implementing a Citizens Dividend as Investment Fund

World News Reddit - Fri, 05/04/2018 - 23:44

I was recently discussing an article written in popular newspaper describing the problem of rising housing prices as unsolvable. Everyone here should understand how easy the problem actually would be to solve simply by implementing a land value tax. In the course of the discussion I stated I think it is impractical to promote land tax to, “audiences”, and explained why.

The current system does in fact advantage certain people. The advantaged people exist in a pyramid with the people at the top having massive advantage, people below lesser advantage. Below that however there are probably hundreds of millions with apparent advantage. What I mean by this is people who own 1 or 2 small rental properties. Clearly they recognize they have an unnatural and relatively speaking luxurious advantage over their tenants. The don't realize however that the people up the chain from them possibly have such massive advantages that although they own 1 or 2 rental properties they actually have a smaller share of total global land than they would have if there were a totally even distribution. So people who own 2 or 3 properties total, including the one they live in would actually increase their personal wealth by joining a Georgist system. But they would never believe it. Every "audience" would have a percentage of these people who would typically have special influence over the thinking of the other members of the audience and would nullify any attempt at communicating the real situation.

This leads me to an alternative way of looking at the problem. My proposition is that a group of people get together organise a fund along the following lines.

  1. The fund invests in land and pays a dividend to the members of the fund.
  2. The fund membership comprises of 2 groups of people
    1. Members have donated money to the fund
    2. Members selected randomly from around the world including every single country and every single over 18 year old whether living off a $1 a day or a multibillionaire. A lottery being held to find a member each time the assests in the fund increase to the point where the new members can be paid.
  3. All members of both classes get paid exactly the same dividend
    1. The total rental income of the all land in all countries on earth
    2. Divided by the total number over 18 year olds on the earth
  4. The fund be administered over the internet, be totally transparent and be run by a large number of volunteers

Phil A invited me to see if I could try, “kicking off”, a discussion about this idea here. So lets see if anyone thinks it’s any good, or can suggest improvements.

32 [M4F] LDR/Cyber Affair w/honest intent to close the distance

World News Reddit - Fri, 05/04/2018 - 23:35

I'm 32, but my interests are ten years younger and my speech patterns and lingo usage much more conducive to college age - I DJ, make Deep House, Trance, and Techno. I'm an artist and have been one for over ten years. I draw, paint, and can pretty much find something creative to do with anything I put my paws on. I game on occasion(Xbox, you plebs :D ) but that's been pushed out of the way by music and marketing the same, as well as just too much adulting. I watch skateboard videos and college philosophy lectures on YouTube to relax. Something about the movement of the body and the mind help calm my thoughts. My music is my main thing though. I am studying how music affects the mind and emotions in an attempt to find a way to help people who suffer from extreme anxiety and depression, though that's not exactly novel or original. That is my ambition however.

I'm looking for a long distance relationship that starts as friends and flirting, selfies and long conversations about deep stuff or small, it doesn't matter. If you want to talk for four hours till you fall asleep on the phone, I'm DEFINITELY your guy and I don't run out of things to discuss. If you want to vent and not have to hear "well I'd fix it this way", then I can do that. If you want the opposite, I'm on your team and we'll talk solutions. I have a high IQ, but the wisdom to know that being able to handle abstract concepts easily does NOT IMPLY that one is a nice or decent person, and I don't use it to compare myself to anyone - I use it to help me figure out the world and how it works, and especially how to make my music.

I'm in a loveless marriage that is coming to a close. I'm not going to be dishonest about that fact. If you're looking to move in with someone tomorrow, move to next post. I would love to, but I need things to happen sequentially and not in broken order so that I'm respectful to the lady I'm with, and equally respectful to you. We have zero in common (we discussed this multiple times) and it's put both of us in severe depression. I have children but I don't intend to throw them in anyone's face. I'm a good father to them just fine by myself and will continue to be without throwing you into a position you don't want to be in.

I'm an extrovert that's been shoved into a box, forced into withdrawal, and needs an out, although I grow socially drained quickly in a large crowd and need that recharge time, so I'm not a clubber/barfly at ALL. I am decently attractive, but such standards are subjective I'm aware, and I wear a (currently broken) pair of glasses (lol) over a well groomed beard. I like to shave my head so I don't get pestered by it in the summer. I'm 5'9 and 188lbs. I have a standard size skull and it's not been broken yet, so I'm sturdy.

My favorite colors are green and blue, though I really love that Frank Miller-esque Red White Black mix... it makes the best pop art.

I like cats AND dogs. I have a dog, his name's Bandit, and he's my battle buddy against depression. He always has my six. He's honey colored with a red tinge about him, and he's at least eighty pounds of doggo with "tear the yard up" paws and a tendency to pee when he's excited. He's an outside dog for that reason. He takes me on runs. I don't lead him. :D

I am high-functioning Aspy (Asperger's syndrome) and as such am rather blunt, honest, and open. Prior Marine, so I have the drive to do what I do and the ability to encourage others to do what they want to do. I am very addicted to new ideas, and to digging into them to see if they mesh with reality. I am a centrist politically and hate both extremes and what they do to people's ability to socialize. I can easily avoid politics in conversation. I don't chill well with SJW's or AlrRighters. I'm more an individualist, and appreciate people for their own individuality - not "I like you because you identify with X Y Z group". I want to know what makes YOU you. I grew up with a lot of baggage but won't put it on you - I'm dealing with it like a big kid, don't worry. However, if you're the type that has concern for your friends, I won't mind letting you know what's bothering me, and I won't expect you to have some deep solution for my issues - and ear is fine with me. It helps a lot. Aspergers and Autism are not precisely the same, and are a spectrum for a reason - I suck at math, but great with patterns (thus art and music are my thing), and if you have a writing assignment for your college class, I actually enjoy helping out with those. I write fast and I have good composition, something learned from being misunderstood growing up. It forced me to write to clarify my thoughts and self-articulate better.

I am always making people laugh. With me or at me doesn't matter to me, though growing up it used to.

I have a natural affinity for languages and speak Russian, Pashto (Afghan) and a bit of Arabic (which is beautiful but is one tough cookie.) If you speak another language, I'll learn it over time while speaking with you. I'd love to learn Spanish, French, or Italian.

I am direct. I can be blunt. Sometimes you'll have to reign me in, but you'll never doubt what I'm thinking. I have the ability to be polite while doing so, I promise lol. I judge actions as better or worse, but not people. People I love equally. I have had friends who were gang members, some who grew up around the KKK and grew out of it, some who used to be communists, and some who were anarchists. They all find me easy to speak to without me attacking them for the fact that they held an opinion that I might not only have found disagreeable, reprehensible, mildy annoying, or disgusting. I don't believe in thought crimes, and I expect that other people probably think differently than me.

I am well read in the classics, and Charles Dickens and Shakespeare are my favorite homies. Charles is the bomb. Great Expectations is my favorite novel from him. David Copperfield was pretty good too, but Nicholas Nickleby is AWESOME.

Possible deal-breakers for you if you didn't hear any yet: I smoke regularly, and when I can, 420. I have high anxiety and it helps. I am slowly slowing down on those and replacing that habit with the DJ tables (which have somewhat the same calming effect.)

Things that turn me on: I love long hair, though pixie cuts are hot and side shaves are dope af. Anything fun you do with your hair I love. Also eyes are my favorite facial feature. I don't have some arbitrary requirement for your boobs and butt. Boobs are boobs. Butts are butts. If it happens to be larger, I'm cool with it. If it's smaller, I'm cool with it. Your face is what I get to see most of the time anyway so that's where I find my attractions occur mostly.

Things you think that will annoy me that won't:

Being clingy. Go ahead and Cling away. I've been ignored to the point of being a glorified room-mate for 12 years so I need to feel healthily wanted, honestly. I've forgotten what that feels like. You can text me at literally any hour and when I see it, I WILL reply. Just don't accuse me of cheating on you because I disappeared for five minutes to take a restroom break. Remember that I'm direct - if you do something that makes me worried, or if I feel something is so bad I might need to leave, I WILL talk to you about it first before assuming and deciding. However, don't play games with my head. I have a backbone and you'll know it when you do that. Just be frank about your doubts and I will clarify them for you.

Smoking and 420. However, if you're into heroin or anything harder, I'm not going to be able to deal with that, as it removes your personality over time till it's unrecognizable. That would kill me and I'm not going to start something that's just going to disappear and die after the addiction takes hold.

Having extra weight. I don't like twigs. Honestly. Extra curves make me happy inside. >_> lol. However, I don't find myself very attracted to weight over 280/300 so I'll be honest about that here. However, it's about how you wear it if we're being frank and if you are that special one that mind melds well with me and we discover that fact, then the weight won't matter as much either. I am attracted to beautiful minds and hearts at the end of the day.

Having lots of problems. I have PLENTY so feel unjudged lol.

Needing to vent. Please do, on the contrary. I'll reciprocate when asked.

Asking me for selfies. I love photography already, and I love people's faces. It's the window to the soul. I'll pester you with my face too so fair trade.

Crying. Stuff happens and life sucks a lot, very much of the time for very many people. I am not naive and I'm not going to hate you for having a cry. I have my own (that's a gimme, normally I don't admit that lol)

Having a messy house. I'm creative and artistic. We are not really neat people lol. Not in general that is.

Texting me a lot all the time. I don't get over texted or over talked to. I have the opposite problem. :(

Being nerdy. I have my own nerdy areas of interest. You can find out about those if you talk to me. (No more gimmes)

Hit me up on here in the private messages, or in the comments and I'll PM you.

Thank you so much for listening. I've been as honest as I can and I really, really want this to work. I know you're out there and you need a friend who makes you their focus. Well, here I am.

Much love, and LISTEN TO DEEP HOUSE XD
