A crazy man used to preach at my university. Now I know he really served the Devil.
2020.05.13 14:33 Phlegon_of_TralleisA crazy man used to preach at my university. Now I know he really served the Devil.
Pastor Norwood was this creepy old preacher who always stood on a busy street corner on my university campus during the time when the streets were busiest. I passed him twice every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday on my way to and from class. I was raised in a liberal Episcopalian family and I can tell you for a fact that Pastor Norwood didn't look at all like the kind of minister I was accustomed to. I was accustomed to ministers being pleasant, elderly gentlemen who wore robes, liked to tell amusing anecdotes, and often preached about the importance of love for one's neighbor and of treating others with respect. Pastor Norwood he looked like he was about sixty-five, meaning he was about the same age as most of the preachers I'd met. Nothing else about him reminded me of the clergy I'd known growing up, though. For one thing, the guy had the exact same weirdo mustache as Joe Exotic from Tiger King. He also always wore dark sunglasses and a tan baseball cap. Instead of a robe, he wore cargo pants and a tattered gray jacket. He always openly carried a handgun in a holster at his side. Sometimes, he would preach with his hand literally resting on the handle of his gun. Pastor Norwood's message was also markedly different from the one I'd always heard from the pulpit. He was a really die-hard, intolerant fundamentalist and he preached about Hell so much that you could practically smell the fire and brimstone from a mile away. He had a thick Southern accent and he shouted everything he said so loudly that you could actually hear him from about that far away too. When he preached, his face was often red with rage. Pastor Norwood didn't just preach about Hell; he also had a lot of opinions about basically everything. He was constantly proclaiming that our evil liberal atheist professors were indoctrinating us into Satanism and trying to eradicate Christian values. He preached that gay people were really just pedophiles, that Donald Trump was anointed by God to make America great again, and that evil liberal Satanists were trying to take guns away from righteous Christians so they wouldn't be able to defend themselves when the Antichrist came. Many of the things I heard Pastor Norwood saying disturbed me greatly. I suppose I must have had lived a rather sheltered life, because I found it shocking that people really believed such things, which, to me, seemed twisted and backwards. One day when I was walking back from class, Pastor Norwood was being unprecedently aggressive. He was preaching about how our evil atheist professors were indoctrinating us into Satanic ideology and encouraging us to engage in sexual immorality. He was really unhinged. He was flailing around, hurling horrible insults at individual students passing by, and ranting about how the world is evil and how the Rapture is going happen any day now. "You!" I heard him shout in his booming voice just as I was walking in front of him, "You, the little blond whore with the backpack!" I turned around to see he was pointing directly at me. "What's wrong with you, dude?" I asked. "You can't just go around calling random women you don't even know 'whores.'" "Well, I can tell you are a whore, because, if you weren't a whore, you wouldn't be attending a den of Satanism and iniquity like this!" "I'm not a 'whore' and, even if I was, that would be my business, not yours," I told him. "The ways you defile your body are God's business," Pastor Norwood declared. I was really scared of Pastor Norwood. The guy was always really angry and, to be honest, there was something about him that was just downright creepy. I couldn't put my finger on exactly what it was, but, whenever I was near him, I felt like there was some kind of otherworldly presence. Nevertheless, in spite of all my fear, I mustered up the courage to step closer to him and challenge him forthright. "Isn't Jesus himself described in the Gospel of Matthew 11:19 as 'a friend of tax collectors and sinners'? Does it not say in the Gospel of John 7:53-8:11 that he rescued an adulterous woman from being stoned?" I don't know how on Earth I was able to remember those Bible verses. I'd had to memorize them as part of a Bible study class several years previously and, until that moment, I had thought I had forgotten them entirely. "Jesus only has mercy for whores who repent!" Pastor Norwood bellowed. "You must turn away from your sinful ways, reject the evil things you are being taught here, and fully embrace the gospel!" "I'm not a 'whore' and I have embraced the gospel—the true gospel, not whatever you're preaching." "How many men have you had sexual relations with?" the pastor demanded, his voice breathy with anticipation. I was really scared. Here was a man with a gun demanding to know about my sex life. I answered him honestly; I had had sex with one man, a former boyfriend. "See!" he shouted at me, "You're a little slut—just like all the other lying whores at this university! I bet you just went to a party last night and got twenty men or more to come in your filthy little holes! There aren't any virgins anymore! Every man is entitled to a virgin bride! That's what God made the race of women for: the fulfillment of men's desires!" "No, I swear, I'm not lying!" I insisted. Pastor Norwood's right hand moved for his gun, but I instinctively reached out and grabbed his hand before it could get there. I've never been very strong and he should have easily shaken my hand off. When I touched him, though, for some reason, smoke immediately starting rising from where I was touching him. Pastor Norwood looked like he was in terrible pain. "Let go of me," he growled. I didn't let go of him. I was too afraid. I didn't want to hurt him, but I sure didn't want him to hurt me either. Suddenly, Pastor Norwood's eyes turned yellow and a terrible, cruel, inhuman voice came out of him without him moving his lips. "Oh Great Master Satan, receive me!" the voice shouted. As soon as he said this, I freaked out. I let go of his hand and started to run away. I was stopped in my tracks by a strange animal-like sound coming from behind me. I turned around to see Pastor Norwood's face had transformed into a bestial maw and his hands had grown claws. Pastor Norwood's hideous animal face contorted as his mouth was ripped wide open by a terrible force from within. His head was flung backwards as he collapsed to his knees. His arms twisted into bizarre and unnatural positions and his clawed fingers bent in all directions, including backwards. Black smoke billowed forth from his mouth, accompanied by thousands of horrifying screams. At this point, nearly all the students who had gathered around to watch the confrontation between Pastor Norwood and I took off running, screaming in terror. I, on the other hand, was too afraid to run. I was afraid that, if I took my eyes off the smoke, it might attack me or something. I slowly backed away, keeping my eyes glued to Pastor Norwood. The smoke that had come out of the pastor's mouth developed into an enormous cloud of inky blackness hovering above his head. As I stared into that blackness, I saw thousands upon thousands of terrifying, demented faces gazing in all directions with all sorts of ghastly expressions. There were faces that looked human, faces that looked animal, and faces that just looked downright bizarre, like the faces of aliens beings. At this point, Pastor Norwood was practically writhing on the ground as the black smoke just kept coming out. I wasn't sure how long this was going to go on. Finally, after nearly a full minute of smoke pouring out of his mouth, it stopped. Pastor Norwood collapsed on the ground, apparently completely lifeless, and the clouds of demons dispersed in all directions. Some of them rushed into the crowds of students that were running away. Some of them went into the sky. Some of them went into the ground. Some of them even went into the nearby buildings. Eventually, all the smoke was gone and I was left standing there, shocked and horrified by what I had seen. Even though I couldn't see any more smoke, I was so scared that I just took off running. I wanted to get away from that place as fast as I possibly could. I stayed away from the place where Pastor Norwood used to preach for the entire remaining portion of my time in college. I never took that path to class ever again. I was too scared that there might still be demons hanging around, looking for someone to possess. For months after that happened, there were dozens of reports from all around the university about people acting strangely, people going crazy and randomly harming other people, and people committing suicide. Altogether, six people on campus were murdered and four committed suicide. I wasn't there when any of the deaths happened and there was no evidence to tie any of them together, but, to this day, I remain convinced that demons are responsible for everything. I am still traumatized by what I saw that day. I have nightmares about the demons billowing out of Pastor Norwood's mouth almost every night. I can't sleep in the dark, because the darkness reminds me of the demons I saw. Every shadow looks to me like a demon and every sound outside sounds like Pastor Norwood's bestial growl.

2020.01.18 06:02 jay_hawxPredicting the direction that Chapter 117 is heading
Chapter 117 marks the continuation of the final major arc of this manga, which deals with the aftermath of Fuutarou's decision at the end of the school festival, and each chapter in this arc so far gives the spotlight to a different quint. Chapter 115 set up all the potential issues that each character will be dealing with in this arc, but it also gave some focus to Ichika. Chapter 116 revolved around Miku completing her character arc. And now the latest chapter gives us insight into how Itsuki feels about the whole situation. She's jealous. Full stop. That's not even a question anymore. What's interesting about this arc is that each of the rejected quints are handling Fuutarou's decision in different ways. Ichika seems to be first person to fully accept the outcome and is actively supporting Fuutarou. Nino is just straight-up pissed off because she feels Yotsuba is unworthy. Miku isn't pleased at the outcome either, but she's settled into a more neutral position compared to Nino. And Itsuki...she's incredibly conflicted right now. She wants to support Yotsuba as she's always done, but is being held back subconsciously by her own jealousy. The chapter ends on a suspenseful cliffhanger, as Yotsuba and Nino are about to face off a second time in this arc, with both Fuutarou and Itsuki lurking in the shadows. It seems increasingly likely to me that this is going to end with a major reveal, but what could it be? And how does Itsuki fit into all of this? The Three Paths That You Can Follow (To An Itsuki Ending) I'll just get this out of the way at the beginning: I still don't believe a bait-and-switch is happening. It didn't make sense to me when Chapter 113 came out, and it makes even less sense to me now. There is a lot of speculation that Itsuki's realization of her own feelings will lead to her becoming the bride. The logic behind this is that there must be a greater reason why Negi waited so long before definitively confirming that Itsuki does love Fuutarou. That in itself doesn't guarantee a twist, though. Itsuki's own introspection doesn't affect Fuutarou in any way, and his feelings are the key to a potential plot twist. Upon examining the possible scenarios that would lead to an Itsuki win, I realized that they could all be categorized into three simple routes, and none of them work. In order for Itsuki to win, at least one of three things must happen to trigger a bride twist: 1) Fuutarou chooses Itsuki on his own The festival arc lasted 16 chapters and provided some heavy buildup towards Fuutarou's choice at the end. Fuutarou's interactions with the other sisters made him question whether or not he was being honest about his feelings. He admits to himself that he made the quints wait too long. After he chose Yotsuba and got rejected the first time, he was beside himself, but still wanted Yotsuba to tell him how she felt. Then he spent the rest of chapter chasing after her when he could have given up at any point. I doubt that this is all going to get Requiem'd back to zero just for the sake of a plot twist. This route seems to revolve around the idea that Fuutarou rushed his choice, but I'm not buying it. Fuutarou outright told Yotsuba that he had to work up the courage to enter the infirmary, likely because he didn't know if she loved him back. He went through the trouble of doing all of this despite having three "easy" choices in Ichika, Nino, and Miku. Choosing Yotsuba of all people simply for the sake of making a choice seems like a galaxy brain move to me. It would have been easier just to stick with his original idea of choosing no one if his heart wasn't set on anyone. This would also reflect poorly on Fuutarou's character. The sisters took his decision very seriously, as shown by how they all waited in separate rooms and instructed Fuutarou to enter only one room to show "the extent of their resolve". Going back on his decision would render all of that useless and possibly reopen old wounds. 2) Yotsuba rejects Fuutarou (for real this time) Yotsuba has long been hesitant to pursue Fuutarou because of the guilt she felt towards her sisters. When Yotsuba tried to be special, she became self-centered and cocky, and it ultimately resulted in all of the quints changing schools. She didn't want to be considered special by Fuutarou because she was afraid she would revert to her past personality, and it could have permanently fractured her relationship with her sisters. This arc shows Yotsuba taking the first steps to overcoming that guilt and realizing that it's not wrong to pursue her own happiness. Yotsuba still loves Fuutarou and that's not simply going to go away, so if the arc ends with her rejecting him, it would only be out of obligation for her sisters. This would effectively put Yotsuba's character back at square one with the manga about to wind down. She's not just losing Fuutarou here. She's losing the opportunity to grow as an individual. 3) Itsuki makes a move on Fuutarou This is the least likely scenario, mainly because it flat-out doesn't fit Itsuki's character at all. Itsuki told Yotsuba that "everyone has the right to hope for happiness." She also told Fuutarou that "unnecessary consideration will only add insult to injury." I find it hard to believe that this same character would then proceed to make Fuutarou reconsider his decision, then take away Yotsuba's happiness. And no, being in love is not an excuse for her character to suddenly change for the worse with no buildup. Ichika might have pulled shady moves because she loved Fuutarou, but this was a regression to how she acted when she was younger, which was foreshadowed by Yotsuba during Scrambled Eggs. Itsuki doesn't have the same foreshadowing that would suggest she would do something similar, nor does she have the time to redeem herself. Nino and Miku are both upset by the outcome, yet there's no indication that they'll actually attempt to steal Fuutarou away. Ichika briefly entertained the idea of taking Fuutarou for herself before giving him her support. None of them have moved on from Fuutarou, but they still have enough self-respect to refrain from pulling a move like that. If Itsuki makes a move, it would be a huge slap in the face to all of her sisters, not just Yotsuba. Itsuki is better than this. The Last Arc - Itsuki's Side So why is Itsuki realizing her feelings now, of all times? Personally, I think there's a much simpler reason for this. Itsuki's character arc largely revolved around how she coped with her mother's death. She took Rena's death the hardest out of all the sisters, and wanted to become a teacher in order to emulate her. This arc reached its completion during Itsuki's side of the school festival, when Itsuki realized that while she can look to her mother as a role model, she can still follow her dreams on her own merits. There was a loose end still remaining, though. Itsuki never actively pursued Fuutarou, but some of her interactions with him looked a little too strange to write off as merely platonic. In my opinion, this was most apparent in Chapter 92, when Itsuki spent the entire day staying close to Fuutarou...sometimes too close. The purpose of this was to keep Fuutarou away from her sisters to prevent conflict, and I believe this was genuine. But it was also possible that she really enjoyed hanging out with Fuutarou - more than she realized at the time. Itsuki's jealousy in Chapter 117 represents the acknowledgement of this loose end and the beginning of Itsuki's final development in this story. When Chapter 115 set up the events for the current arc, I originally believed that this arc would be about how the bonds between the sisters would be tested one last time. This is still the case to an extent, but there's actually more to it. This arc is about the quints growing as individuals in the wake of Fuutarou's choice. Ichika and Miku both came to terms with the outcome on their own, and it's possible the other three sisters will do the same. Unfortunately, Yotsuba and Itsuki are dealing with their own internal struggles. Nino's problem appears to be with Yotsuba, but we also haven't gotten a look into her thoughts yet this arc, so it's possible she could also be dealing with an internal problem. Itsuki's struggle is unlike the other sisters because it seemed like she was actually satisfied with Fuutarou's choice at first before she started feeling jealous. Since these feelings are coming up now, it means she's completely unprepared to deal with this, which will only make it more difficult for her to move on. Despite all this, I don't think Itsuki will act on her feelings, at least not in a deliberate attempt to take Fuutarou for herself. At the beginning of this chapter, Itsuki asks Shimoda for advice about why she's feeling uneasy on the inside, but makes it seem like she's actually talking about a character in a TV drama instead. Shimoda responds by saying the character (actually Itsuki) is jealous and predicts that she'll attempt to steal the heart of the person she loves. People have speculated that this conversation was meant to foreshadow the path to an Itsuki victory, but I think there's a different purpose here. Think back to Chapter 101, when Shota talked about a drama he saw where several sisters fell in love with the same guy, and the sisters who weren't chosen didn't get any closure in the end. This scene was meant to put pressure on Fuutarou as he was still deciding whether or not to go through with his choice, but in a meta sense it was also a nod to how the fanbase was concerned that once that decision was made, the other sisters would be left in the cold. This arc proves that this won't be the case, as Miku was given a focus chapter after Fuutarou's decision that wrapped up her character arc. This meant that the meta-prediction by Shota didn't come true. Keeping all this in mind, Shimoda's prediction could serve a similar purpose. When she initially said that the "character" was jealous, she stated it in a matter-of-fact way. This part of her prediction is ultimately proven to be true once the rest of the chapter unfolds. Then when she makes the rest of her prediction, she gets considerably more animated, almost like she's speaking emotionally without actually thinking things through. The fact that Shimoda's personality completely changes at this point suggests that the remainder of her prediction is supposed to be unreliable. The point of this scene is to make Itsuki feel uncomfortable and put her in a moral dilemma, but Shimoda also acts as an audience surrogate. Her prediction reflects the expectations of the reader once they realize that Itsuki truly is jealous. The first thought would be that Itsuki will enter the race and make one last attempt to win Fuutarou over. However, this also provides the opportunity for those expectations to be subverted and have Itsuki go down a different path instead. But exactly what path would that be? First off, Itsuki is going to have to acknowledge in some way that she actually loves Fuutarou. Chapter 117 does leave some room for ambiguity, but evidence continues to mount. Once that happens, Itsuki then needs to take the next the next steps toward overcoming her jealousy, and given the way this arc has gone for the other quints, she'll have to figure this out by herself. I believe the key here will be witnessing Nino and Yotsuba's confrontation. Itsuki has tried to avoid conflict whenever possible, and even attempted to get Nino away from Yotsuba in this very chapter. This confrontation is likely going to get ugly, and it's possible that it could actually snap Itsuki out of her state of uneasiness, just out of fear that she could end up in a similar state as Nino. Alternatively, from this confrontation she could also learn the extent of Yotsuba's love for Fuutarou and realize that her earlier efforts to support Yotsuba weren't in vain, and would then become happy for her as a result. Whichever way she does it, Itsuki will need to overcome her awkwardness around Fuutarou by the end of this arc. Is It Getting Cold In Here? I thought it was odd at first that Fuutarou wasn't getting a ton of focus this arc considering his decision was the catalyst for the events of the last three chapters in the first place. Once I realized this arc was about the quints dealing with their individual issues on their own, it made a little more sense to me. Still, Fuutarou is the main character, so nearly everything he does in this arc will be significant. When he runs into Itsuki, he asks to talk with her one-on-one. There is some speculation that he's already having second thoughts about his decision, but I highly doubt that's the case. For one thing, Fuutarou was last seen two chapters practicing a second confession to Yotsuba by saying "I love you" to a tanuki statue. If he started considering another quint now, this development would have occurred offscreen with zero buildup or foreshadowing. In addition, he'd be discussing this with the person who explicitly told him not to make any unnecessary considerations. On top of that, at this point Fuutarou still doesn't know what Yotsuba's unfinished business is, so having him move on before figuring this out would be a dick move on his part. It's more likely that he wanted to discuss Yotsuba. Chapter 117 hints toward this when Fuutarou and Yotsuba are sitting next to each other, but they're unwilling to talk about what they wanted to discuss with Itsuki and Nino respectively. Their reactions are shown side by side, suggesting there's some kind of parallel between how they're feeling. It's likely that Yotsuba is going to talk to Nino about Fuutarou, so it's possible that Fuutarou was going to talk to Itsuki about Yotsuba in turn. When Fuutarou met Ichika in Chapter 115, he wanted information on how Yotsuba was doing, but Ichika wasn't able to provide any. He might have wanted to ask Itsuki a similar question. Itsuki wouldn't have been able to give him much detail either, but Fuutarou had no way of knowing that. The most significant moment in the chapter plot-wise arguably occurs during the conversation between Nino, Yotsuba, Fuutarou, and Itsuki. It starts with the four of them talking about their future plans, a conversation that Itsuki started in order to ease the tension. Once Yotsuba announces that she had a sports-focused university reach out to her, Nino reacts with contempt and says "the other side comes to you without you having to do a thing." Nino believes that Yotsuba didn't put in the effort to win Fuutarou's heart and was pretty much lucky to be chosen. On the very next page, Fuutarou is looking at Nino intently. It may not look like it, but this is a major turning point in this arc. It's unclear if Fuutarou was able to surmise the exact meaning of Nino's words, but at this moment he has to know there's something off here. Fuutarou may finally be realizing that this was what Yotsuba needed to do before accepting his feelings. Once Itsuki drags Nino away, Fuutarou tries to give words of encouragement to Yotsuba. Since Yotsuba ran away from him (again), we're not able to hear what he was going to say, but it likely would have been something along the lines of what he told Miku back in Chapter 29 - that Yotsuba acquired her athleticism through her own efforts, and she shouldn't let anyone else invalidate that. This chapter features a running gag where the characters all talk about how it's snowing in cold places when they're in the middle of an uncomfortable situation. Itsuki said it when she ran into Fuutarou because she was trying to work out her feelings towards him. Yotsuba also said the same thing when running into Fuutarou because she still has to resolve things with Nino, and probably doesn't want to face Fuutarou until she does. Nino says this after running into the other three characters because already had to deal with Yotsuba and probably doesn't want anyone to witness their conversation. And then Fuutarou says this at the end of the chapter while he and Itsuki are hiding as Nino and Yotsuba are about to start their confrontation. The fact that Fuutarou is uncomfortable instead of confused demonstrates a level of awareness for the situation at hand. It's pretty clear at this point that he knows what's about to go down. The 4:28 Train On A Collision Course This is what the arc has been building towards. Yotsuba gets another chance to talk things out with Nino. Yotsuba tried to avoid being chosen by Fuutarou because she knew her other sisters would be heartbroken as a result, and she would have felt responsible for that happening. However, she didn't know that by running away from Fuutarou after the festival, she was only further complicating matters. After talking things over with Miku in the last chapter, Yotsuba finally realized that she needed to stop hiding and instead be upfront about how she felt about Fuutarou. Now she has to deal with the character who was most hurt by the events of the decision. Oh, and Fuutarou and Itsuki are watching without her realizing. That could complicate things. Nino was initially mad at Yotsuba because she didn't want the latter to pity her, but this chapter revealed there was more to her anger. She believes that Yotsuba didn't do anything to make Fuutarou fall in love with her. Nino has always been super competitive when it comes to Fuutarou ever since she confessed to him in Chapter 60. She was the opposite of Yotsuba - someone who always made her feelings clear and wasn't afraid to push back when necessary. If she lost Fuutarou to someone else, she wanted it to be someone she considered to be a rival. Instead, Fuutarou chose someone who wasn't even on her radar. From a competitor's standpoint, that has to sting. Nino isn't just sad at the outcome, she's bitter. Since we still don't know Nino's inner thoughts, it's possible there could even be another reason why she's so angry at Yotsuba, but for now I'll just stick to what's been established. Before I get into my theory on how I think this confrontation will go, let me just preface this by saying that there's a distinct possibility that this conversation will get interrupted. In this situation either Itsuki and Fuutarou get discovered in their hiding spot, or one of them jumps out and intervenes before things get really ugly. It just seems like the most Negi outcome possible here. But that wouldn't be very fun for prediction purposes, so I'll assume that at the very least Nino and Yotsuba get a few exchanges in before any interruption happens. I believe this conversation will start with Yotsuba giving Nino the opportunity to express how she feels about this situation. The last chapter involved Yotsuba hearing out Miku's problems and realizing that she needs to accept the fact that her sisters aren't going to be happy for her right away. Yotsuba expressed sadness that she wasn't able to understand Nino back in Chapter 115, and hopes to do so this time. As a result, the next chapter could very well focus on Nino and finally give more insight into what she's feeling. The last three chapters gave us the inner thoughts of Ichika, Miku, and Itsuki, so it makes sense that we'd move on to Nino. But after Nino brings her feelings out into the open, then what? Nino expressed frustration that Yotsuba was pitying her and believed that she could get whatever she wanted without earning it. Nino's competitive spirit is preventing her from accepting the outcome. It feels like the only way Yotsuba will be able to resolve this conflict is to prove to Nino that she earned Fuutarou's love. It's not enough for Yotsuba to just say that she loves Fuutarou, she needs to explain what she's done to make him love her back. I see this ending with two possible outcomes, one messy and one slightly less messy. The first outcome is that at some point, Yotsuba brings up Kyoto. Yotsuba will want to explain to Nino how she fell in love with Fuutarou in the first place, and it started five years ago. She'll tell Nino how her first encounter with Fuutarou changed the both of them significantly, and she's loved him for a long time. It'd be a rather (in)convenient time to bring this up, considering Fuutarou is right there listening to the whole conversation. In addition, the sister who helped Yotsuba in making Fuutarou move on from the past is also present. Fuutarou will probably reveal himself at this point, since this revelation would be so significant to him that I'd doubt he'd want to stay hidden. Needless to say, the confrontation ends here. Yotsuba will probably run away for the billionth time (possibly to the swings), and Fuutarou is going to want answers from her. Itsuki might also consider revealing her role as "Rena", since between her jealousy and the Lolikano reveal she'd probably be weighed down by a ton of guilt. And Nino...she'll remain angry for now. I don't think a Lolikano reveal will really move the needle on her front, so something else will need to happen for her issues to be resolved. Really, this outcome is more about throwing everything into further disarray. If Negi wants to add even more chaos to this story, this would be one way to do it. Alternate Hail Mary Prediction Well, I did say that interruptions aren't fun, so I'm gonna make a second prediction. This scenario assumes that no interruptions occur and the Nino/Yotsuba encounter comes to an actual conclusion. This hypothetical will end with Yotsuba successfully convincing Nino that she earned her victory in the Fuutarou sweepstakes. The only thing is, this is a bit of a longshot, but it's a possibility I want to raise nonetheless. First off, the fact that Yotsuba was the first quint to fall in love is irrelevant to Nino. After all, Nino said it herself during Sisters' War: "Does it matter when you fall in love? I don't know...All I know is that no one loves him more than I do." Yotsuba could bring up all the times she supported Fuutarou throughout the manga, echoing Fuutarou's sentiments during his first confession. This will also accomplish nothing. Nino has a very traditional view on romance, and believes that grand romantic gestures are the key to making someone fall in love. It's not really Yotsuba's style, but she'll have to humor Nino on this one. Yotsuba will have to think about a time she performed an overt act of love to sway Fuutarou's heart. We know that Yotsuba has kissed Fuutarou twice - on the cheek in Chapter 51, and on the lips in Chapter 108. For the first instance, Yotsuba did it without even thinking and tried to play it off as a thank-you gift. For the second instance...well, Fuutarou was basically half-asleep, so I don't think Yotsuba will want to mention this. That leaves her with...nothing. But what if there actually was something else she could bring up? Something that we know happened in this story, but we weren't certain if she was the one who did it... The bell kiss. If Yotsuba was the bell kisser, this would be the time to reveal it. This is the one thing that would convince Nino beyond a shadow of a doubt that she won Fuutarou's heart through her own efforts. Why? Because Nino made her own attempt to kiss Fuutarou under the bell, and failed. Yotsuba doesn't know this, but she doesn't need to, since she would be revealing this because she has no other options. With this reveal, Yotsuba will have one-upped Nino in the grand romantic gesture department, something the latter previously didn't think was possible. Nino will probably doubt Yotsuba's claim...until Fuutarou reveals himself. Yeah, he's not gonna stay hidden for this reveal either. Things will get awkward for sure, but at some point Fuutarou will probably corroborate Yotsuba's claim that someone kissed him under the bell. Nino almost certainly won't accept the outcome right away, but I can see her begrudgingly acknowledging Yotsuba's efforts. And if she sees that Fuutarou is happy with his choice, I highly doubt Nino would stay bitter for long. TL;DR Yotsuba, Nino, and Itsuki need to get their shit together. Get it all together. And put it in a backpack. All their shit. So it’s together. Can't wait until next week when Negi throws even more gasoline onto this giant fire and I have to make another wall of text to attempt to explain all of it.

2019.10.16 12:25 peaceandkindess200Easiest way to get a green card In the USA as a Brit?
Hey all, I have a question I have been meaning to ask. I'd really like to move to Hawaii I just like It, sounds beautiful, beautiful poeple, beautiful beaches ect. The only problem Is American laws compared to British laws are so fucking strict I'm debating whether or not I could actually live there as a permanent citizen. I know obviously Hawaii Is very expensive and very crowded and very diverse. I do honour and respect though Immigration laws but trumps laws are so fucking strict. Obviously I'd save up for at least a decade (barely go on holiday and work tirelessly to have a fund If I get there.) As I'm sure most countrys have a minimum money wise, for how you long stay to be able to support yourself. My step sister backpacker to Australia and she had to have clean record she did, atleast $4'000 Austrlaian Dollars In her bank and somewhere to stay basically and a working visa or similar and basic as that. In America It's much more strict. Any Ideas on how I can get a green card? The marrying root- Well unless I can do thise lay to bride where you pay someone with american roots to marry you Is probably one good option. The other marriage line well I'm not with women so that's out of the window. I'm a very confident person for awkward geek but I'm not good at dating so that's out of the window. The last option I think Is trying to be appealing to some American companies. I have a huge Intrest In programming and foreign Languages. I study Esperanto and Latin purely to help learn something else, as they help you learn germanic and romance languages faster and more efficiently. So I have aspired to be a software developer freelance and or for a company I have no bachelor's degree but web development just normally requires skill. So Is It possible to get sponsored for these roles? And the reason as to why I want to move and never go back Is I hate where I live I'd rather live In some peaceful place, other than get treat shitly of people of my race. I really despise being british, most If not all poeple hear are yobs or just trying bring poeples spirits down. Personally I really really don't want to live here anymore. If I can't for whatever reason Australia or Canada are my other options. I've made and met french, American, Canadian, African friends. I've seen and been all over by far the most arrogant disrespectful and egocentric poeple I have ever met Is my own race. I'm not saying all Brits but the last 20 years everything has changed for the worse I think any brit can agree on that.
2019.09.14 05:18 WhitemausRate My RP Characters Backstory!
Hey everybody. I heard the RP community on Classic is really strict, going as far as mass reporting people for having names that break their immersion so I thought I would bring my character to a jury of my peers before going on an RP server just to find out that I end up getting banned or barred from the server. Without further ado, here he is: Name: Chun-Gus "Humongous" Farrell Race: Human Sex: Male Age: 26 Class: Warrior Backstory: Chun-Gus Farrell was born to seemingly unremarkable parents on the mystical continent of Pandaria. His mother wanted to name him Gustov after her grandfather, but Chun-Gus' father wanted to give him a name more suitable to the lands in which he was born and so after a drawn-out argument, they settled on the name "Chun-Gus". Not long after Chun-Gus was born, his parents moved back to the Eastern Kingdoms and eventually settled down in a small house off the road a ways between Goldshire in Elwyn Forest and Redridge Mountains. Chun-Gus was a bigger than average kid, and by the age of fourteen he was already matching his parents in height. Chun-Gus quickly adapted the nickname "Humongous" due to this fact thanks in no small part to the loggers working nearby in the nearby Eastvale Logging Camp. Tragically however, at the tender age of fifteen both of Chun-Gus' parents died in a horrible sexcapade accident with some of the locals. Chun-Gus spent the next few months learning how to survive on his own. Eventually he had to go into Goldshire for supplies, and while there he befriended the townsfolk and thankfully spent the next decade working odd jobs here and there for the people of Goldshire and the surrounding countryside. Chun-Gus had used his meager earnings to hire an expert Warrior who had taken up shop in Goldshire to train him in the ways of martial prowess, and before long, Chun-Gus became quite adept in melee combat, which expanded his avenues of employment to clearing out Kobolds and the occasional thieves. At twenty-six years of age, Chun-Gus had a full-time job working at the Goldshire Inn. One day, the proprietor of the Inn came down to the cellar to inform Chun-Gus that he had received a letter in the mail. Chun-Gus was surprised, as he didn't know anybody really outside of Goldshire who might possibly send him a message. After grabbing the letter he walked outside and sat down on a stack of hay next to the stabled horses. As he began to read the letter, his eyes widened. It was a letter from a mysterious stranger detailing the deaths of both of his parents during that horrible sexcapade accident! Chun-Gus knew that the only people who could of known the particulars of their deaths were those there that night. He kept reading and the letter eventually told him to meet on the uppermost floor of the Northshire Abbey if he wanted to know what really happened that afternoon. Chun-Gus couldn't believe what he had read. He noted the letter had a perfume-y scent coming from it, meaning it must of been penned by a woman. Chun-Gus thought about it for several minutes, running his fingers over his full beard and wondering if what was waiting for him was a trap. Regardless, he decided he wanted to find out who or what was responsible that afternoon, and so using the string that bound that letter closed, he tied his hair into a ponytail, grabbed his sword and shield and made for Northshire Abbey, not telling anybody what he was doing as the letter had stated to come alone. It was night time when Chun-Gus arrived at the front entrance to the Abbey in Northshire. He looked up at the peak of the building, took a deep breath and walked through the doors and made his way up the spiral staircase. Once at the uppermost floor, a single candle burned in the far back of the room. With what little light shone, Chun-Gus tried to see if anyone was in the room with him. The only clues to show that he wasn't alone was that the candle was fresh, and there was the sweet scent of perfume filling the room. Chun-Gus called out to whoever may be in there with him, but got no response. A few moments later, a figured clad in dark robes stepped into the light. She asked for his name, to which he obliged and asked for theirs in kind. Dodging the question, the robed figure asked Chun-Gus if he were truly ready to discover what happened to his parents that fateful afternoon. Looking at the figure whom he assumed was a woman given the softness of the voice and the pretty fragrance lingering in the room, he agreed firmly, not showing any sign of weakness. She commended him on his toughness, then untied the string around the neck of the robe, pulling it off in one fell swoop, throwing it at Chun-Gus and rushing him before he had time to react. Chun-Gus was immediately tackled to the ground, unable to move due to someone sitting on his waist and pinning his arms down. Once Chun-Gus regained his bearings, he looked at the once robed woman to realize she was as bare as her name-day. She leaned in close and whispered into Chun-Gus' ear something that made his eyes go wide. The sunlight shone through the stained glass onto Chun-Gus' face, slowly rousing him from his sleep. He looked around the room for a moment for the woman he encountered last night in that very room, but saw nothing. Nothing but another letter laying on top of his shield. Sitting up Chun-Gus reached over and grabbed the letter, groggily opening it. Once his eyes fully came into focus he read the letter, which detailed a good place to start his investigation into his parents tragic sexcapade deaths. It also stated that he'll be facing some very powerful enemies in the days, weeks and months ahead, and it would be best if he got stronger if he wanted to see this through to the end. Slipping the letter into his small backpack he rose to his feet and headed down the stairs. He arrived at the base floor of the Abbey just in time to see Marshall McBride give Deputy Willem his orders for the day, and caught how Deputy Willem slumped his shoulders slightly as he walked to his post just outside the Abbey doors. Chun-Gus slowly walked outside as well, and the light from the morning sun nearly blinded him for a moment. He looked around the valley and saw Deputy Willem waving him over. Chun-Gus had known Deputy Willem from his time spent drinking at the Inn in Goldshire, and knew that the only reason he was waving him over was to try and push some menial task on him so that he wouldn't have to do it himself. The words from the letter stating he needed to become stronger flashed in his mind, and so he walked up to Deputy Willem to undertake any quest that he might have for him. Chun-Gus "Humongous" Farrell now sets out on a journey to seek out those who may have killed his parents in that tragic sexcapade accident, determined to thrust his way across all of Azeroth if he has to in order to bring the culprits responsible to blissful justice. -------- Okay I know that was a long read, and I apologize. I might of gotten carried away with the backstory a bit, but that's where you all come in. Let me know what you thought, if you made it all this way.

2019.07.07 01:11 JDLuckeFirst time DMing: My Session Zero Story
Hey everyone! I figured I would share my experience as a first time DM, and running session zero for GoS. I will preface this by saying that I've been playing DnD for about a year, and I'm a fan of Critical Role, so I wasn't completely in the dark when it came to DMing. Also, I love to write, so I decided to place Saltmarsh inside of one of the worlds I've been working on for some time. I've kept some of the names of places and NPCs the same, and many of the races and gods will be the same as in the Forgotten Realms. I have added additional races that I've either read about or created, and I've written an in-depth history for the region surrounding Saltmarsh as well as in other areas. I will include details about the party for those interested, and then go into the session from there.
Kael: Drow, Oath of Vengeance Paladin. Dr. Meldin Yurtle: Tortle, Totem of the Bear Barbarian. Hail on the Shield: Tabaxi, Arcane Trickster Rouge. Rek: Changling, The Great Old One Warlock. Pog Wiggins: Gnome, Alchemist Artificer. T: Half Elf, Wild Magic Sorcerer.
My plan for introducing the players (6 people, starting at level 3) to the world was simple. I would have them start on a pirate ship as captives, then a kraken and sea salamanders who serve it would attack the ship, giving the PCs a chance to get to a rowboat and escape with whatever they could carry. I created very simple stat blocks for all of the pirates and salamanders except for Captain Sharkrot, a seabold fightewizard, and his Quartermaster, Botug Whalebone, an ogre barbarian.
Things started off as planned, all of the PCs explained what they looked like since they were chained up near each other along with nameless NPCs in the hull of the ship. The only PC that isn't present is T, the sorcerer. In fact, the other players know nothing about the character at all, not even his race or class, and this draws immediate suspicion. More about him later! As expected, the PCs engaged in light dialogue and were feeling each other out. They also were curious about the NPC prisoners, and took a liking to one in particular, a minotaur named Zons, who is a lot like Andre the Giant from The Princess Bride. Soon after, a guard comes over, yells at them, and kicks Hail in the face for mouthing off. The guard also berates Dr. Yurtle for throwing up on himself (his flaw is he gets seasick easily, which is hilarious for a tortle!). A frantic prisoner named Jo starts pleading with the guard that there's been mistake and his boss (Primewater) knows the captain and can buy his freedom. However, just as this dialogue starts, the ship slams into something and is stopped violently, knocking the guard out. This is where I explain the sounds of creatures scurrying up the ship and sounds of fighting from above. Dr. Yurtle, uses his (nerd) rage to bust out of his chains, and Hail uses a nail to pick her lock. They help to free the other PCs, and just as they start to formulate a plan on what to do next, that's when I explain the sounds of gigantic arms cracking the sides of the ship, causing leaks to spring in many places.
I have a few pirates rush down in an attempt to mend the ship, which has collected a few inches of water. Some of the PCs are wanting to fight them, while Hail decides to help them and begins mending the ship. Dr. Yurtle, who broke into a room next to the stairs, found some weapons, and comes out and proceeds to chop one of the pirate's heads off. Hail, meanwhile is trying to convince the party to help mend the ship. Rek, who has taken the shape of a dwarf during this time, is using a halberd to break the chains off the other prisoners, including Jo and Zons. I wasn't expecting the group to want to help the pirates save the ship, and it threw me off for a few moments. However, an angry paladin helped me out.
Luckily, Kael (of course!) does a "Fuck these pirates!" moment after finding a longsword and starts hacking away at the carpenters. To keep the pressure on, I informed them of the quickly rising water levels, and they make for the stairs, sadly having to leave some chained NPCs to their fate.
The PCs emerge to a lower deck filled with carnage as the cannons are firing at giant tentacles, and humanoid salamander's are savagely fighting pirates. I explain the captain fighting alongside of Botug Whalebone across the deck. This pisses of Dr. Yurtle the most since the captain is wielding the enchanted trident that belongs to him. Before they can react, a tentacle breaks through a cannon port, causing it to backfire, filling the place with exploding debris and smoke. Some of them begin to fight the pirates and salamanders, while others go for the captain. Their attacks against the captain seemingly do no real damage, but the fighting is interrupted by two more tentacles breaking in. The captain yells at Botug to abandon ship, and then pulls out a stone and vanishes.
The Mystery Hand
As I explain the rising water levels, and the continued destruction of the tentacles, the PCs decide its time to abandon ship too. They all start heading up and fighting for one of the remaining rowboats. However, Dr. Yurtle stays below deck after seeing a familiar green Mage Hand open a door from inside a nearby room. He runs in and grabs his friend, T, who had accidentally polymorphed himself into a backpack some time ago, and is still looking for a way to return to form. Despite his current physical state, T still possesses the ability to use magic, and can even talk, though he only whispers to Dr. Yurtle for now.
The Rowboat Crew
After some more fighting, the PCs secure a rowboat with Jo, and two pirates teens. Yurtle enters the boat last with a pack, but the group thinks nothing of it. There are several pirates still floating on debris and swimming while the ship is slowly sinking nearby, however, their getting picked off by salamanders and squid roaming the waters. This is when the PCs hear their favorite minotaur friend calling for them and rowing towards the boat on a large piece of driftwood. When one of the pirate teens comment about how there's not enough room, Rek fires off an Eldritch Blast into the teen's face, crippling him. The party then forces the other pirate to dump his nearly dead friend into the sea in order to stay on the boat, which the young man did fearfully.
Mario Party Fishing
With Zons now on the boat with the others, they row a bit away from the drowning ship, and decide to scavenge what they can from the wreckage. The only problem is the water has some big nasties patrolling it. Pog Wiggins is adamant about searching the many barrels and crates floating around, since he was captured with his kits, supplies, and most importantly, his mushroom shaped Alchemical Homunculus. While the party debated on how they would reach the many objects without having to row constantly, a creepy hand appeared from the doctor's backpack and grabbed the nearest barrel, and started rolling it toward the boat. I couldn't help but laugh at how much the hand reminded me of the fishing game from the first Mario Party. The best part about T being a backpack is the party is under the belief that there's a little creature hiding in the bag that has magical powers, and they haven't the slightest suspicion that it's the bag itself. When Dr. Yurtle was asked about it, he just brushed it off as an "I'll explain it later" kind of a thing. I felt so inspired by their creativity, that I let them keep fishing like this for some time. It was just really fun, like I felt that I was opening each barrel or crate up with them, waiting to see what was on the inside. They found some of their kits, tools, wine, components, etc... I also had them find barrels marked with a mysterious red R branding with distinct grey lines running behind it. Rek is a smuggler, and found some rare silks that he knew he could sell, and a mysterious dagger hidden within them with red veins running through the hilt (no idea what the hell that's supposed to be!). Pog Wiggins' mushroom was also found when the group saw a barrel moving itself toward them. It was a lot of fun.
Being Found for Better or Worse
As night started setting in, they moved further away from the wreckage, and could see a large, feint purple light rising up from where the kraken had been. As they considered what that could be, one of them spotted a ship coming toward the wreckage, and the paladin drew its attention by casting some light. They held their breaths as the ship slowed, wondering if it could be more pirates. That's when several shapes appeared along the edge of the deck, and the shapes were those of large humanoid sharks in rough leather and cloth. One of them yelled out, "Hey Captain! Looks like we have some guests to join us for dinner!" That's were I ended Session Zero. Fucking Street Sharks!
Overall, I had a blast. I learned that I love improvising with the players, and found myself disregarding a lot of the stat blocks I created and just going with the flow of the story. The constant tension of the environment, mixed with the music really brought the story to life for everyone. My next game is tomorrow night, so if anyone is interested, I'll let you know how that goes.

Chapter 1 -Collette- Collette woke to the sun shining in her face, the warmth was nice. Her curtains had opened, and she realized it must have been the Earth cat she had brought home. 'Why must I go through this?' she thought as she laid and stared at the ceiling that she had painted to look like the Earth's skies. 'Why must I choose? Why can't I just do both?' As she rolls out of bed, she walks to the window and pulls the curtain open. "Hello Cat, have you been exploring?" Collette says when she noticed the Earth cat sitting in the window seat. His Black and white fur shined in the sunlight as he rolled onto his back, "It's a beautiful day. Perhaps we can picnic once I return from school." He looked at Collette, his green eyes opened lazily, sat up and cocked his head curiously, he meowed. Collette rubbed his head right between his ears. "Oh, it's when a person packs a lunch in a basket, and they go outdoors and lay on a blanket and eat! Yes, they eat outside!" Collette picked up the cat and cradled him in her arms while she rubbed his belly. He meowed again, then started purring and closed his eyes as Collette carried him back into her bedroom. "I know it's fascinating!" "Why must you speak to that thing as if it understands?" Collette turned to see her father in the doorway of her bedroom. "I'm not sure how you even got the mangy thing back here from Earth anyway." Collette sat Cat down on her bed. "Archer, I couldn't just leave him there! He practically begged me to bring him home, he needed me." She remembered how she had found the poor thing behind her Earth High School starving and filthy. His fur matted, and he was so skinny Collette could see his spine and ribs. She had spent an hour just trying to lure him to her. Archer shook his head, then turned and left. Collette's father had long dark hair that was pin straight. He would gather the hair behind his ear's and tie the top half into a braid and tied it off with one of the wild flowers from the garden. His eyes were the brightest and clearest blue Collette had ever seen, true Lylithean features. The majority of Lylithean people look this way, and then there's Collette. She looked in the tall mirror that stood next to her closet. She has the long dark hair, but where most of her people have straight hair, she has wild, curly hair that was full of volume. Her eyes were the most intense color of green, as striking as emeralds. The people closest to her weren't sure if they should be intimidated or consumed by them. Even though they hardly felt emotions, she swore she felt a tinge of what Earthians call jealousy. She wanted the same straight hair and blue eyes. Then maybe she wouldn't feel so out of place. She looked through her earth wardrobe and found a pair of ripped jeans. She pulled them up over her hips and looked in the mirror, then rummaged through her wardrobe until she found her favorite top. The white flowy tank top fit her well, then she pulled her light pink hooded jacket on. She found her transport bracelet, latched it on while she slipped into her classic black converse, and walked out of the room. She had just turned 17 and was granted what all royal children on Lylithea are, a chance to go to earth and learn from the Earthians. She didn't want to go but her father, the High King of the planet, told her very sternly that she was going and had no choice. She could hear his steady, gruff voice "If you are to take the throne and become High Queen, you need to know their ways to continue keeping peace in the universe." 'How are we to keep peace if the Earthians are so oblivious to our existence? They haven't a clue we even exist.' She thought as she descended the stairs and passed the dining hall. It was 7:15, she had 15 minutes to get to the shed and transport. She grabbed her school bag and ran out the door and through her family's large grounds to the far east corner where a small Green Gardening shed sat. The teleporter must be hidden so no Lylithean finds it and transports themselves to Earth. She approaches the shed and hears the transport bracelet chime on. She opens the yellow door and makes sure it is closed securely behind her back. She can already hear the voices as she turns and walks to the closet in the back of the shed. Slowly she opens the red doors and sees her Earth High School. She takes a deep breath and steps through. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 'Why must transporting make my hair so much curlier?' Collette thought as she ran towards the school just as first bell was ringing. Collette felt dizzy as she tried to smooth her curls down. After a few moments her head stopped spinning, and she walked to the front doors. She'd only been attending the earth classes for two weeks, but she still felt overwhelmed every time she walked through the front doors of the High School. It was so loud and crowded, it made Collette feel small. She quickly walked to her first class and sat down in the back like always. As she pulled out her notebook the second bell rang, and Professor Carmichael came into the History class. "Good morning class" Professor Carmichael said as he walked into the room. "Please pull out your reports on World War I" Professor Carmichael was a short man with wild white hair that was thinning on top. He wore thick glasses and always wore a bow tie. Today's tie was purple and looked wonderful with his lavender button up shirt and tan slacks. "So, who can tell me why August 4, 1914 is an important date?" Someone answered but Collette wasn't listening. She found herself thinking how she had to make such a big decision in such little time, and how much her decision would affect everything. 'You have a year Collette. It's only been two weeks. You have time.' She thought as she watched a cardinal flying around the school's front lawn. Collette had realized she had become distracted looking out the class window and hadn't heard a thing Professor Carmichael had said the whole class. The bell rang and she laid her report on his desk as she passed. Down the hall she heard Michael and Findley with their group of friends rough housing. 'Earth males are so different from the males on Lylithea.' She thought to herself as she passed them in the halls. Michael nudged Findley and pointed at Collette. She could feel her face becoming hot, but she was unsure what this feeling was called. She looked towards the ground and gripped her backpack straps tightly. She quickly entered her class and sat in her seat. As she was pulling out her English notebook, Findley entered the room. He smiled and sat next to Collette "Hey Collette, how was your weekend?" "It was fine." She said as she thought about the lessons, she had this weekend. She had to study Lylithean history during her Earth weekends. "I mainly read." "I think that's all you do." He laughed, "Read anything interesting?" 'No' "Oh yes." She smiled, she looked out the window and again was lost in her thoughts. The rest of the day dragged on, she felt there would be no ending. Finally, the last bell rang, she gathered her school bag and headed for the front doors. As she left the school, she heard Michael calling her name. "Collette!" She stopped to see Findley and Michael heading her way. There was a girl as well, but Collette hadn't met her yet. Collette smiled, "Hello, Findley, hello, Michael." "Hey Collette, we're heading to the mall, you wanna come?" Michael said grinning. "Oh, I couldn't, I need to get home to Cat." Her face was becoming hot again. "You still haven't given that poor animal a name?" said Findley, "You've had him since you started school here." "Cat suits him. Why over complicate it by giving him a name that he won't be comfortable with." "It's just a cat Collette." Michael chimed in. "They haven't gotten any feelings" "All creatures have feelings. We can learn so many things from each and every one of them." Collette replied. She didn't like the way Michael talked about Cat. After all that was her pet. "You are so weird." Michael said laughing. "She's not weird" the girl had spoken. Her voice was quiet, "I think she's got a point, if we could learn from animals maybe we wouldn't be destroying our planet." Michael scoffed, "No one asked for your input, hippie" "I'm not a hippie." She looked irritated, then turned to Collette, "My name is Riley by the way. I'm Findley's cousin." "Nice to meet you Riley, I'm Collette." She smiled, then looked to the ground "I really must be going. Archer doesn't like when I'm gone from home longer then I need to be for school." "It's a shame, it's going to be a great time." Said Findley, smiling ear to ear. 'His smile is nice' thought Collette. "Come on Collette, you're always saying you want to learn as much as you can. Think of this as a way to learn more about Camden." Said Michael as he put his arm around Collette's shoulders. 'He does have a point. I haven't learned much about this town yet' She thought. Her face was becoming hotter by the second. "Maybe just one hour." "Yes!" yelled Michael, "Let's go!" As they rode down the road Collette could smell Michael's hair gel. It was nice, but strong. Almost like he had lathered his entire head in it. His hair was blonde, short on the sides but longer on top, and he always styled it. Collette couldn't remember a time when it wasn't perfectly sculpted on top of his head. His clothes were just like his hair, perfect. He always looked stylish and clean cut. Findley, however, was the complete opposite. Findley's hair was longer and 'swooshy', brown and always a mess. He wore jeans every day, and one of the hundreds of band t-shirts he had collected. His eyes were as dark as his hair, maybe even darker, almost black. Findley seemed more care free then Michael, like he didn't need to prove himself. Once they had arrived at the mall, they all got out of the car and headed to the diner. The mall wasn't really a mall, it was more like a couple of run-down shops, abandoned stores, and the diner. The diner was the only place that got any real business in the mall. The bell above the door dinged as they entered the diner. The smell of grease filled the air, they go to a booth close to the kitchen. Riley and Findley run, and both try to get the seat by the wall, Riley dives in and claims the spot and victory. Findley audibly groans and flails his arms in defeat. He sits next to Riley leaving only two seats left which meant Collette would have to sit next to Michael. Again, her face became hot. "After you, mi 'lady" He said gesturing towards the booth. She smiled timidly and slid into the booth. They ordered a basket of fries for the table and four chocolate milkshakes. The waitress brought the milk shakes first. Collette's arms and chest had started to feel tingly. As Findley and Riley spoke about the most recent comic book they were debating over, Collette's face felt so hot she thought it might melt off before another minute would pass. "So," Michael began. Putting an arm around Collette "It's about time you hung out with the gang." "Yes, it is nice." She said trying not to sound winded. She knew this feeling, she had felt it most intensely her whole life, much more then any other emotion. It was panicky, and made Collette lose her breath and then forget how to breathe. She did not like being nervous. It made her feel as if she weren't in control of her actions. He scooted closer to her. "How are you liking school?" Michael asked. His arm around Collette's shoulders made her heart race. She thought it might jump out of her chest. "I like it, Especially history class." She feared he would hear her pounding heart. The waitress brought the basket of fries and Collette grabbed a few. She looked at the table and told herself 'Get a grip, take a deep breathe.' She popped a fry into her mouth, 'In and out' she thought, 'Just remember to breathe.' "Oh, history is so boring. What's the point in learning about a bunch of shit that has already happened?" Michael said while rolling his eyes. This caught Collette off guard, brought her out of her own head. "and that crack pot Carmichael needs to just retire already. I mean the dude has to be one-hundred and fifty." "I just find it interesting. Learning the stories of our past." Said Collette. Suddenly she felt very uncomfortable. She couldn't put her finger on what made her feel this way. She looked at her watch, it had only been twenty minutes since they'd left the school. 'Ten more minutes and I'll leave. Archer is going to be pissed' "Enough talk about school!" said Michael "We have to suffer six hours a day five days a week, let's enjoy our freedom!" "I wouldn't call it suffering." Findley chimed in, "just slightly inconvenient." he threw a french-fry at Michael. "After all, if it wasn't for school we never would have met!" "Yea, yea" Michael said laughing. He threw the fry back at Findley. Collette ate some fries and drank her milkshake while the boys and Riley talked about Homecoming. She didn't quite understand it, but it did sound fun. Getting to wear a dress, and dancing to music. She imagined the earth girls wearing gowns like the ones she had to wear for high council gatherings, long and elegant, metallic looking dresses. "Hello, earth to Collette!" Michael said nudging her, "Were you going to come watch us play?" She was still thinking of the dresses, "Play? Are we playing a game?" "Yea kind of," Findley laughed "the homecoming game?" "Oh! Football! Right, sorry I wasn't paying any attention." Collette said, "I'll ask Archer." She looked down at the table for a moment, "Will you be there Riley? I'd hate to have to sit alone. I don't really know anyone besides Michael and Findley." She said looking up at Riley. Riley looked surprised, "Me? I don't know. Football games aren't really my thing." "Oh come on Riley! Come cheer on your cousin while my girl cheers me on" Michael said pulling Collette in with the arm around her shoulder. Collette almost choked on her milkshake, "Your girl?" her face became hot again and she looked from Michael to Findley and Riley looking, and feeling, like a deer caught in headlights. "Well I mean yea." Michael said looking into Collette's eyes. "I was hoping we could go to homecoming together." He smiled and pulled her in even closer. "Oh." Collette said heart pounding like a hammer, "Um. Well, I mean I'm not sure if Archer would let me." She tried to even her breathing. "He's very protective and doesn't like me being away from home unless it's absolutely necessary." 'When did I become 'his girl'? does this mean we're dating? Am I even allowed to date an earth boy?' Collette's head was reeling, and her face was becoming hotter and hotter by the second. "Wow dude, way to blow it." Findley said, "You can't ask a girl out by calling her 'your girl'!" Collette noticed he talked with hands, a lot. "I did not blow it!" Michael said, he turned his head to Collette. "Please Collette, if you don't say yes, I'll never hear the end of it from this one." "And now you're begging!?" Findley said throwing his hands to his face. He was now laughing so hard he almost fell out of the booth. Collette's head was still spinning when she heard herself say "Yes. I'll go to homecoming with you." She looked down at her watch and realized they had been out for an hour and a half "Oh no I need to get home!" "Let us drive you" Findley said pulling his car keys out of his pocket. "No that's alright, I can walk." The mall was only about a mile from the school, "I'll see you all tomorrow! Thank you for the milkshake." She headed to the car to grab her things, when she got to the door, she heard Michael. "Hey Collette! Wait up!" he caught up with her and put his hand in hers. "I can walk you. So you don't have to be alone. Also, I hope I didn't embarrass myself in there, you know calling you my girl." Her heart skipped a beat. "Oh, no its ok. I don't mind." She looked at their hands intertwined and lost her breathe. "Look," she said while taking her hand back, "I really don't think Archer is going to let me go to the dance. I'm not even sure how he'd feel about me dating." Suddenly Michael kissed her, and she forgot all about Archer and rules. All she cared about was Michael and how his lips pressed against hers made her whole body feel like an electric shock went through her head all the way to her toes. Michael pulled away, and Collette felt like the world was spinning around her and Michael. Slowly everything stopped moving and she felt tingly all over, "I'll talk to him." "That's my girl" ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The walk home was a blur, she told Michael she lived in a house a block away from the school and waited on the porch until he was out of sight. As soon as he was out of sight, she leaned against the front door grinning ear to ear. 'Ibetter leave before whoever lives here finds me on their porch.' She walked off the porch and back to the school. There was an abandoned house across the street with a little green shed in the back. She looked around one more time and made sure no one was around, turned on her bracelet and walked through the portal. Collette walked through the closet closing the door tightly behind her, shutting off the portal. She was walking out the door when she noticed her father standing with his arms crossed against his chest. She had never seen Archer look this way, his face angry, body tense. "Where have you been?" His voice sounded as tense as his body looked. "I'm so sorry. My friends asked me to hang out, I didn't think I would be out this long." "You should have been home two hours ago." Archer said, his arms still crossed, his feet planted firm. "I know. I'm sorry" Collette said looking at her feet. "Do not let it happen again." "Yes, sir" She looked up and saw he had uncrossed his arms. He still looked angry but now not so tense. Archer turned and started walking through the grounds back to their home. Collette took a deep breath and followed. They walked in silence until Archer opened the door for Collette. "Dinner will be ready soon. Please change out of your earth clothes and come down. We have much to discuss." She nodded and headed up the stairs. She sat her things on her bed and threw her jacket by the closet. She did the same with her top and jeans. She walked to her bed and started pulling her schoolbooks out to make sure she didn't have any homework. She wondered what Michael was doing. If he was thinking about her too, and how much she liked being called his girl. Her heart raced as she thought of his smile, the way he looked at her. Though she couldn't tell what, but something was off. Collette walked to her closet and pulled out a simple dinner dress. It was floor length, red, off shoulders and cinched at her waist with a belt. She ran a brush through her hair, checked her reflection in the floor length mirror and headed downstairs. Archer sat at the head of the table, her mothers chair at the opposite end, and Collette sat in the middle on the left side. Collette looked at her mother's empty chair. She missed her very much. It had been four years since she passed but it still hurt. Not a day went by when she didn't think of her. "How were your Earth classes today?" Archer said, helping himself to the food on the table. "Good. We are learning about World War I in my history class." Collette said as her father started eating. "This is good." Said Archer, "These lessons will help you learn how not to handle wars, or better yet how to avoid wars altogether." Collette tried to remember if she had ever heard of a war on Lylithea. "When was the last Lylithean war?" She looked at her father. "Hundreds of thousands of years ago. Wars are last resorts for our people." Archer said, "We find them wasteful, and honestly why let all those good men and women die because someone can't get along with someone else." "I couldn't agree more. I think the loss of life isn't worth it when there are so many other ways to come to an agreement." "Yes, but men have the weakness of pride. They can't put it aside and make sacrifices for the better good, this is why the High Queen Agueda made it so women ruled Lylithea. She saw the weakness in men." "When will I learn more about her Archer?" Collette said, she still hadn't touched the food on her plate. "Queen Agueda? I'm not sure. I'm sure she will be in your lessons soon enough. Did you know she is also the one who brought in the arranged marriages for royal children? To help keep peace in our world royals must marry their children to a Lylithean from the general population. This way when input is needed the royals and the people have a say." Collette saw her chance to ask about homecoming. "Interesting you bring this up. I was wondering, since I'm not betrothed yet, what does the council say about interplanetary relationships?" "Well my dear, as of today, you are betrothed." He said without even looking up from his plate. It felt like Collette's heart had stopped "I am? To whom?" "His name is Zachariah Xavian. You will meet him next month at your engagement party." "Oh" She looked down at her plate. Her stomach became upset, her throat tight. "Oh?" Archer had finally finished eating and put his utensils down to look at his daughter. "Well, I was asked to Homecoming today. It's an earth tradition and I thought I could go. To learn the customs." Collette said, feeling unsure "I already told him yes." "So, this is why you asked about interplanetary relationships." Archer's eyebrows furrowed, "You may go, alone. You are betrothed and you must not do anything to put this union in danger. Your mother wanted this marriage and has been working to make it happen since you were four." "Why was I never aware? I knew I would have an arraigned marriage, but if this has been happening since I was four why have I never known?" "Your mother wanted you to grow up without feeling trapped." His eyes looked sad. "I see." Collette was sure what she was feeling now was anger. 'How could they do this? Make me feel like I might have a say in whom I marry just to tell me it has been known all along.' "If its any consolation, he really is a great boy. He's a year older then yourself, grew up as a farmer." Archer had started to drink a glass of wine. "Does he know he is to be king one day?" she said looking at her father, hoping he could feel the anger and hurt coming from her eyes. "He does now. He came this morning while you were in classes. If you had been on time you could have met him today, but you were off doing who knows what." He sat down his glass, "He was very disappointed that he didn't get to meet his future bride. He said he would write to you though. To help the month pass and to get to know each other." Collette sat quietly for a moment, 'There's no point in being angry.' She thought. "I'm sorry I missed him. I won't be late again." She said looking at her father again and seeing his shoulders relax. "I understand you're a teenager, you want to go and have fun with your friends. But as the future High Queen you have responsibilities here. Your responsibilities to your planet will always come first." "I know" she looked down feeling defeated. She had never felt trapped until she started going to earth. Seeing how carefree the Earthians were, how little they had to worry about. It made her feel jealous. Jealous because she had to grow up so much faster then her few earth friends. Jealous because while the biggest worry they had was what dress to wear to homecoming, she had to worry about how to rule an entire planet. "May I be excused?" "Of course, dear." Archer looked at his glass then back to his daughter. "If it were up to me, you could choose your own husband. I know how hard it is to be forced into a marriage you're not sure you want. However, if you're half as lucky as your mother and I, it will be a perfect match." Collette stood, curtsied, and headed for the stairwell. Once she got to her room, she shut the door behind her. She was starting to have a new feeling. Her throat was tight. She slipped out of her dress, grabbed an earth t-shirt and shorts and walked to window seat. She found Cat and pulled him into her lap when she sat down. She told cat about her kiss, and how Michael made her feel. 'Will I be able to feel like this with Zachariah?' she thought, 'Or is this a feeling you only get for one person?'She looked at the sky, at all the stars above. The new feeling creeping into her heart, 'Why do I have to go through this?'
2019.05.28 05:52 Tdsmith0ver9000"A Stolen Cup," a fantasy story I wrote.
1. I decided to take it. I did take it. They were not happy with me. I am surrounded now, by all sorts of men, from all over. Some are wearing dark uniforms, bullet-proof vests, the acronyms in bold yellow “CIA,” “NSA,” and others burning brightly in my parents’ living room. Other men are wearing long red robes with little red caps. Others still are wearing long, black ones, while their compatriots are adorned in black button-down shirts with white clerical collars tucked neatly under their shirts’ pointed black neck flaps. They are all surrounding me, either interrogating me with their words, or giving me looks, offended, staring unapprovingly. Soon they will take me and it, away. It is too late, though. I have already achieved my end with that illustrious artifact. I wanted it, needed it, for my purpose. I didn’t even know if it was real, if it worked, or if this crazy, inane, scheme of mine hatched in the depths of my brain in a moment of the most severe desperation would or even could work. But I was committed to the cause. I was convinced I had to try. Convincing my brother and Dad was far more difficult. They wouldn’t do it. It was stupid, unrealistic, far-fetched, dangerous, and required far more reckless abandon and gumption that your average, run of the mill lower middle-class American citizens had to take them outside their comfort zone to ever even attempt such an act. No matter what I said, did, or how furiously and furtively I argued for it, they would not join me under any circumstances. No amount of convincing was going to make them change their minds. Then it happened. We knew it was coming, but none of us were quite sure when it would. It seemed distant, far off, imaginary. An eventual ending of the world as we knew it, an impending apocalypse, that, while we knew it would inevitably happen and the sky would come crashing down on that veritable day of family Ragnarok, still seemed surreal and strange and unreal when it was finally there. Mom had been diagnosed with the tumor long before this point. The doctors gave her two years. She had lived, up til now, for two years and two months. The sweetest, most loving, and nurturing mother that ever lived was at once tough as nails and determined to fight viciously until the bitter end. She had managed to outlive her prognosis by two months. Now, however, her condition had deteriorated. No treatments were working anymore. The doctors had recommended hospice; enjoying what little time she had left and doing less harm outweighed continuing a rigorous schedule of futile, painful, and ultimately ineffective treatments at this point. That had been a month (a very fortunate month, which we cherished, with a diagnosis as aggressive as hers) ago. Now, mom was bedridden entirely, and could hardly move at all, needing the assistance of a nurse with even the most basic things such as eating, drinking, and defecating. It was miserable for the entire family, and jerked tears from my soul which eventually matriculated and trickled down from my eyes, but most of all for Mom. The end was quite near now, we all knew, and soon she would be leaving this earthly realm and simultaneously taking her permanent leave from us, too. I remember standing in my parents living room the day when all the nurses, clerics, friends, and well-wishers were gathered around her in her bed, and I stood in the living room, all by myself at that time, staring out the window. It was very, very nearly time, now, closer than it had ever been. It would not have surprised me one bit had I seen a dark angel, or a man in a dark cloak with a sickle walking down the gray cement sidewalk beside my parents’ grayish brown brick house with its orange awnings, knocking on the door and entering to take her soul to the next realm. But what if I could do something about it? I closed my eyes and remembered the image again from the 2014 news article. An ancient, withered, wooden cup, gilded in gold. It didn’t look special, or magical, or mystical at all. In fact, it didn’t even rest upright properly! It was slanted on its odd-shaped, warped base, so old it was, and would hardly be able to hold an entire cup’s worth of liquid. Yet it had been one of the most sought-after relics in the world for centuries. I showed my dad my phone screen. He read its contents, and it took him a few seconds to fully comprehend the already-purchased plane tickets it displayed. I could see the dilemma in his eyes. 19 hours there? And back? And everything and anything that happens in between? What if she’s gone when we get back and we miss her passing? What if she goes the minute we leave? Take off? Land? Touch the coveted cup? He closed his eyes tightly, squeezing away tears. Finally, he solemnly nodded. “We’re going to lose her if we stay. We may save her if we leave, maybe not. Either way, we stand to lose her. We have already had precious time with her and have been able to slowly say our goodbyes. This is crazy and risky, but we have very little to lose, when you think about what’s hanging over us here. We may as well go!” It was decided. My brother, father, and I hastily packed up a few provisions and left out the back door, slipping quietly away from my Mom, her nurses, and caretakers. We had made up our minds. We were going to steal the holy grail. 2. As I said before, I had no idea if this was going to work, if the Holy Grail, was, in fact, the Holy Grail, or if its miraculous qualities existed and the legends were truths and that it could, in fact, heal my bedridden, sickly, dying mother. I did not know if it was truly the cup of Jesus, that miracle-working relic of renown. I wasn’t even sure exactly where I stood on Jesus, the Church, miracles, and religious beliefs in general. While not dismissing them entirely, and certainly not demeaning or ridiculing anyone who believed in them in any way, I had simply drifted apart from those things in my daily life. Being a man of the world, who, somewhere during college stopped going to church (much to my religious parents’ chagrin) I had become more and more your typical secular, skeptical-leaning postmodern millennial man; I didn’t really believe in such things, tending to dismiss them as naïve and primitive beliefs left over from an archaic and ancient past that some people still believed in today. But I remembered the loves of my youth, and I remembered my dream. I was into a lot of things back then, things that I still love and cherish today. King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings, just to name a few. I absolutely loved these things as a child, so much so that in my heart of hearts today perhaps my inner child even now considers them real, and their characters my friends. I loved stories of knightliness, heroics, and the magic, quests, and perils that they all entailed. I still love them, but not with the same intensity and frantically fanatic fever that only a child can display for his favorite franchises and fandoms. I had a dream one night, when I was maybe 11 or 12 years old, wherein my father, brother, and myself were searching for the Holy Grail. We were way, far away from home (I had that feeling in the dream, anyway) in another, far land, on a golden, sandy beach. I had the sense that we had been on a long, difficult, taxing journey, and had searched far and wide. I don’t remember much about the dream, but I do remember that we dug beneath the sandy dunes and uncovered an ancient city made of brick. Traversing pitfalls and crags and chasms, and narrowly avoiding getting killed by booby traps, we eventually fell upon the grail. It was pristine, golden, and its many jewels glittered, beaming like a rainbow in the arid sunlight. Picking it up, the city began to shake. We barely escaped alive, with sands pouring into the city to cover it up again forever. I remember sliding on my bum down a brown, sandy dune, the golden, shining, magnificent chalice in my right hand, and a mix of cheerful accomplishment and excited adrenaline rush from the chase filling my head as my heart throbbed. I remembered that dream when I concocted the plan, whilst also reflecting on the details from that newspaper article. I bought those fateful plane tickets to León in Northern Spain, and planned to make our way to the Basilica of San Isidoro, where in 2014 two researchers had concluded that a frail, pitiful looking wooden cup that through the ages had been varnished and gilded in shoddy gold and silver adornments, was likely that of Jesus Christ from the Last Supper. The plane rides were long, cramped, and uncomfortable. A 19-hour marathon of flights from hell to get across the Atlantic, starting out in our hometown, then consisting of three connecting flights from Charlotte, N.C. to London, then to Barcelona. The first two flights I won’t bother to going into detail. During the flight across the ocean, my father, wearied from care taking and worrying constantly over the last months, in addition to frequent travel with my mother between hospitals, passed out on the long flight and snored as he dozed. My brother and I rode side by side, myself in the window seat, my brother in the middle seat. We were both quite cramped, pressed into each other’s space and the wall of the plane, respectively, due to our other seat-partner: a large olive-skinned man with greasy black hair, who was sweaty and smelled as though he had not bathed in several days. I hardly slept a wink on this flight, being cooped up and seated awkwardly. That was okay. I knew I would not be sleeping much on this journey. A lot was at stake and there was a plethora of details (of which I had given absolutely no thought prior to the whimsical decision of embarking on this quest) and potential scenarios wherein we failed, epically, to worry me for the entire ride. Eventually my brother fell asleep. I watched the rest of the in-flight movie, Kingdom of Heaven, which was being broadcast in Spanish with English subtitles. Somewhere in the middle of the third replaying, just after the swords of two crusaders on the screen crashed with a metallic clang, I must have dozed off. It was one of those black, dreamless sleeps, wherein you are unaware you fell asleep, and later only remember being restlessly awake. Whatever the case, it was not a very long sleep, and finally, after so many hours, the landing gear of the plane touched the tarmac with a screech and a puff of burning rubber smoke. The passengers on the plane all clapped and cheered, applauding the successful landing. My brother and I exchanged a glance. “Are they used to flights not normally landing?” he asked me, with a hint of dry sarcasm. We exited the plane wearing our backpacks, which were our carry-on luggage and the only things we brought with us. We called a cab and climbed in. I told the driver our destination: The Basilica of San Isidoro. 3. We entered the Basilica, a father and his two sons, determined and on a quest. We stepped off the curb and away from our cab and crossed its outer courtyard, a marble walkway surrounded on both sides with water that spewed out of the mouth of a statue’s head, and walked up the stairs of the building’s brick façade. It was grand, ancient, and beautiful. Entering, we crossed the inner open-air narthex, which was a perfectly square, bleached-white brick courtyard surrounded by four arched walls, all topped with reddish-brown terracotta shingles. Together the three of us walked up to a station at the far end of the courtyard, where a stout man with a large book and pen stood. We signed up for a tour of the museum of antiquities and relics inside. Our tour guide was an elderly, beardless white priest with neatly cut hair, five o’ clock shadow, square wire-framed glasses and a quaint, neat red robe. His deep brown, wooden cross hung down on a red and white striped, braided rope and rested gently against his sternum. He spoke English well, with a slight accent. He guided us through the church, showing us all the art painted on the walls, its high, vaulted ceilings and its columns. Every wall, was painted with glorious depictions of New Testament scenes. It was beautiful and pristine, and ancient, dating back to the 10th century. Its altar was immaculate and its golden plating sparkled and glittered in the sunlight that shone down in beams from the arched porticos above it. At length, we entered the museum. The tour guide told us all about the history of many an artifact there, lined up on shelves, beautifully adorned trophy cases with elaborate woodcarvings. There were ancient works of ivory and precious metal, chalices of all shapes and sizes and metals, and in the library were scrolls, ancient manuscripts, translations of the Bible in tongues long lost. It was all fascinating and the depth and agedness of the culture that accompanied the art instilled a feeling of awe in my soul. My brother, father and I stood for a few long moments gazing about, taking it all in, giving the vestiges their due reverence. The moment passed, and our tour guide priest led us on. The trophy cases all seemed to bend at an angle, pointing onward and inward, slanting toward the prize we sought after. I do not know if this was because of our desperation and the adrenaline that kicked up and made my stomach flutter and heartrate increase as we neared it, or if it were an intentional setup, but I felt as though everything in the room, despite each relic’s own beauty and radiance, were all pointing toward the central attraction. And there it was. In the middle of the high-ceilinged room, on a pillar of pristine marble, sat the Chalice of Doña Urraca, that ancient wooden cup that had been augmented with faded gold and silver, sitting welcomingly, invitingly, out in the open. I stood, dumbfounded for a moment, gazing at it. How was it that so simple a thing, something that was so unremarkable, had been so adored and hunted across so many ages? Could it actually do what my family so desperately wanted it to? And was the much-coveted cup of Christ that caught his crucified blood really there, unguarded, in the open, mine for the taking? Did my eyes deceive me? I met my brother’s eyes, then my father’s, in turn. They nodded. We already had little time, and could not afford to waste any more of that precious delicacy. “Hey!” my brother shouted, tossing up a t-shirt he had produced from his bag. The priest, alarmed and caught off guard, looked up at the cloth. “I’m really sorry about this,” my father said, as he punched the priest square in the nose. The poor cleric’s head cocked back and his eyes screwed shut in pain. He hit the deck, rolled, and sprawled prone on the floor of the basilica’s museum, a pool of crimson beginning to form under his head from out of his gushing nose. His wooden cross clacked loudly against the stone floor. Out of the corner of my eye, I could have sworn I saw a bright red light, like an LED, flashing from the center of the priest’s cross, but I didn’t have time to look and make sure. I took advantage of the diversion, and rushed up to the holy cup, taking it in my hands, unzipping my backpack, slipping it inside, then re-zipping it shut. We all turned and fled, out of the museum, through the corridors, and out into the walled-in courtyard again, making haste to escape with our prize while we could still do so unnoticed before the grail was missed, like children walk-running their opponent’s fabric in a frenzied game of backyard capture the flag. No sooner had we made it to the front gate of the basilica, then several cardinals clad in crimson robes, and armed Spanish soldiers came bursting through. “GET ON YOUR KNEES!” they shouted, in both English and Spanish. The three of us kneeled. Looking up, I noticed the same blinking LED lights on the pectoral crosses of the priests, just like our tour guide’s had. That very same old man, blood still gushing from his nose, which he had plugged with tissue paper and was holding cautiously, limped up. “That’s them!” the red-robed tour guide spoke. The soldiers trained their guns on us. On our knees, thousands of miles across the ocean away from home, my dear mother on her deathbed, my father, brother, and I sat crouched in front of them, the cardinals and their minions. We would surely be arrested as thieves of holy relics, and treated harshly in Spanish prison. We would never accomplish our goal of getting the grail to my mother. My brother began to cry. Dad hung his head and closed his eyes in defeat. The desperation of the situation began to sink into my heart, dawning on my conscious mind as the soldiers neared me to take my backpack away. When they did, all hope would be lost. Mom would surely die while the three of us rotted in prison. I would never see her again, and she would pass, lonely, scared, and wondering where the men in her life were and why they had abandoned her in the end, in her hour of need. Tears began to flood in my eyes. What had I done? It really was a fool’s quest that had been destined to fail, no matter what. I held back a couple of sobs, that made their way out of my nose in several whimpering sniffs. The soldiers, cold and uncaring for our predicament, approached. I looked upward, at the golden, bright sun shining brightly down on us in the open air of the courtyard. I thought upward, turned my spirit upward, and called out in despondency upon the divine, whom I had not conversed with in years, and did not even know if I believed in. It did not matter, I needed Him then. If he were real, and my belief was weak, then help my belief, I do believe, I thought to myself! “Please, help us, Lord.” I said aloud, staring upward and past my earthly opponents. Both my dad and brother’s heads jerked and their stares darted over to me when I said it. At that moment, the ground and the very walls of the basilica began to shake. The shaking grew more and more violent, until the soldiers were thrown off balance off their feet, knocking into and flinging the priests to the ground, too. I arose, and helped my family to their feet, and together, gripping and leaning into each other for support, we managed to make our way around the fallen foes, out the door of the basilica, and over the walkway across the water to the street. Glancing back, I saw the priests rising to their feet along with the soldiers in the arched entryway, the gate still open and rattling in the sudden earthquake. They had begun to come our way, taking up the chase again, when the entire front wall of the church collapsed, turning into rubble and sand. I stood there gawking in stunned silence for a moment, before I felt a tug on my arm. My brother pulled me into the cab my father had called. As we raced away from there, I contemplated, still in shock and a feeling of déjà vu hanging over me, flashbacks to my dream as a child coming back to me as I relived the sands of the Basilica of San Isidoro flowing down and outward from its front façade in my mind. We took the cab to the airport and exited the cab in a hurry, entering the airport and looking all around us anxiously to see if we were being followed. 4. Miracles happen every day. Every breath we take is a miracle. The fact that any of us ever make it past childbirth, infancy, youth, adolescence and on into adulthood is a miracle. Modern medical science and its advances are, in a manner of speaking, miracles. Living and loving and moving and not dying each day or living reeling in pain, each blessed day we are privileged to wake up, each morning that the bright and rising sun shines upon us, is a miracle. Sometimes, every so often, in special circumstances, giant miracles occur. Several such ones occurred to my father, brother, and I that day. We miraculously made it through airport security, with no alarms going off, the grail not raising any suspicion, and none of the airport officials any the wiser about who we were, our whereabouts, activities, or what we were carrying. We boarded our plane and made our 19-hour flight back to the United States and two other connecting flights just as uneventfully as before, by some miracle. And we got off our plane, out of our small city’s airport, into our car, and onto the highway to head home by some miracle. Now, weary, tired, and coming back home fromMom was still alive, we found, when the nurse answered both the home phone and our inquiries, before badgering us with questions about our whereabouts and where we had been. That was when we ran into trouble. Police cars, unmarked cars, and a variety of other vehicles, some sleek, black, and official-looking, others military make, followed us in a low speed chase the rest of the way home. We screeched into the driveway, and my dad bellowed at me to get out of the car and run inside. I did so. The mass of cars, vans, and other assorted vehicles burst onto our property, surrounding our car and the house. Soldiers, government agents, police officers, as well as various priests and clergy poured out of them. They formed a barricade around my parents’ house and began yelling at me through a microphone. I ignored every last word, running onward, as of yet undeterred. I sprinted down the gray sidewalk, busted through the front door, and swung it shut and locked it, just barely outrunning the three burly, bulletproof-vest-clad officers who chased after me. They beat their hands, and then threw their entire weight, against the oak door, which buckled and shook with each hit. I rushed up the stairs into the living room space of my parents’ split-level home, ignoring the imploring pleas of the nurse to tell me what was going on. I dodged doctor and hospice worker, and deftly dashed into the kitchen. At that moment, the officers knocked down the front door, and ran inside, clambering up the stairs pursuing me along with a throng of other various officials, detectives, officers, and clergymen. It was too late. The final miracle could not be stopped by any earthly force. *** I stand now in my parents’ dining room, having been led there in handcuffs to join my brother, father, and the sheriff, FBI, CIA, NSA, lead investigator of our case, and a slew of church representatives, some coming representing the Pope himself. They frisked me, and ripped the holy cup out of my hands. It is returned into the clutches of an indignant Spanish priest. I look at the smug expressions of the various officers. Their mission is complete, the case resolved. Whatever we lunatics were up to, it has been thwarted. Our mischievous, frivolous feat has been foiled. “So let me get this straight,” the lead investigator asks, addressing my dad, “your plan was to steal the Holy Grail, to heal your wife’s cancer?” “That is correct.” my father replies, solemnly. Sniggers from the rest, the priests and clerics included. The investigator then turns to me. “And this was all your idea?” I say nothing. I merely nod. “And you actually thought this cockamamie scheme would work?” I remain silent. All I do is grin. A deep, profound warmth, a happiness in the depth of my soul wells up. Fearlessly, I hold my head high, facing the crowd, smiling. I think. I remember the events right before and after my pursuers broke into my parents’ home in flashes. I remember turning on the faucet and filling the chalice to the brim with water. No sort of special water, only meager, lowly tap water from the kitchen spigot. Racing up the final stairs and into mom’s bedroom. Pushing past the doctors and nurses. Holding her head up to help her drink. Gulp. Gulp. Gulp. Just three sips. Then, the officials tackling me, and the water going everywhere, covering my mom, getting her sopping wet. My face pushed hard into the carpet as I am handcuffed and dragged down into the living room by my assailants. I stand now in the dining room, smiling at the uninvited guests sitting at my parents’ table. In this moment, the sun shines through the sliding glass door that serves as the bay window of the dining room, illuminating me and my brother and my dad, and casting everyone else in shadow. The sudden burst of sunlight from outside makes us so bright that the officials have to squint to continue looking at us, even the ones wearing shades. And in this moment, a female voice pipes up from behind us, stepping into the dining room, having walked through the kitchen. My dad’s head turns, his eyes widen, he sees what he can’t believe his eyes are showing him, and with a loving, excited look, his eyes begin to water as he beholds his bride’s flowing brown hair, vibrancy and life where once there was only chemically-induced baldness, and the smell of death. My brother’s eyes widen in joyous delight, and he gasps. The jaws of every last cop, soldier, officer, and priest drop all at once. “Boys,” that soft-spoken, sweet voice, the very first one I ever heard, that belongs to the gentlest, most caring person on earth, who is also the strongest and toughest fighter the world has ever known, speaks, “what is all this ruckus? Who are all these people and what are they doing here?” It is in this moment, that she walks in. The End https://www.tdsmithwriter.com/uploads/8/5/8/8/85884330/a_stolen_cup_td_smith.pdf

Welcome to the 98th [Lets Build]! TOPIC: People you meet traveling on a long stretch of road.
You come across an older gentleman traveling down the path with a group of 6 small dogs walking behind him. He has them each on a small leash that is attached to his large backpack, filled with dog clothes and toys. Over the last few years, this man has trained these dogs to preform tricks. He is traveling from town to town to try and become a famous performer.
You pass a person draped in flowing red and gold cloth, eyes closed and performing what looks like an incredibly slow dance. Around them are several unconscious bandits.
You see an old woman with a young girl that is slowly moving towards your group. When you come closer you notice that the woman is actually blind and the girl is guiding her. That woman gets intense when you come closer and gives away a series of phrases, each of those can be treated as a prophesy.
A pair of newlyweds on their honeymoon headed to a secluded cabin in the woods. They're both charming and friendly, but the longer you talk to them, the clearer it is that something's amiss. Specifically, it's very clear that the groom has quite a lot to gain in the event of the bride's untimely demise.
You kick a rock, and it appears to grow legs and claws. On close inspection, it is a fist-sized crab disguised as a stone. All rocks in the immediate area reveal themselves to be crabs as well, which begin scattering into the grass. If one is captured, it disappears during the next long rest.
A dog leashed to a tree. There doesn't seem to be anyone else around, but if the party takes the pup its owner will try to find it.
A short woman peddling used magical talismans out of a cart. Her assistant, a large deaf giant who is pulling said cart, grins whenever someone comes near. Her name is Tabitha and she's rather charming in a softspoken way. A bit of prodding into the pair reveals they are both friends who once adventured together.
A man in tattered robes who claims to be nobility who was forced from his home by a wicked sibling. More likely he was kicked out for being a greedy twit, but the party can learn that on their own time as he makes more and more requests.
Two kobolds standing on top of each other wearing a old cloak. They claim they are a famous dragonborn warrior, and they do not seem to know that they are actually two kobolds.
A pair of horses, seemingly abandoned. A further inspection reveals they are still wearing riding tack, and seemed to be abandoned in a hurry.
A person digging a grave, with a body of some sort in a shroud nearby.
A lizard folk wearing a paladins armor. He poorly impersonates the paladin whose armor he has and pretends to be lawful good. Or maybe he’s had a change of heart after getting the gear. Either way, he’s hungry.
A shepherd with a dozen sheep. He keeps insisting that all the sheep are his and keeps looking over his shoulder.
A 10-man road crew removing a stump from the middle of the road. Four of the crew are armed with bows and complain about a dryad interfering with their job. Two are doing the actual work of removing the stump. The rest are "supervising".
A flash flood has blocked part of the road. A sorcerer is standing nearby offering to clear a dry path for a small fee. The sorcerer is true to their word and forms a dry channel to the other side. After crossing, the channel, the flood and the sorcerer disappear.
A pure black, unnaturally tall Tabaxi. She offers a magical item of the DMs choice in exchange for an interesting story. A player must offer a story that reveals a portion of their backstory, and beat a DC 14 persuasion check to receive the item. Each player may attempt this once, but each time it is failed the Tabaxi's interest wanes, increasing the DC by 2. If the Tabaxi's DC reaches 20, she retracts, unimpressed, and leaves.
A small and poor family, all their belongings in tow, moving to a new town.
A Firenewt wizard who sells magic minerals, crystals and dusts. He lives in a hut with a large fire in the middle. He spends most of his days at home making powders and crafting near the fire.

A lonely Bullywug who got lost and lives in a cave. He considers himself the emperor of the cave. He have other frogs and toads as minions and guards.
You see two figures riding on horseback: a halfling and a green dragonborn. They trot along for about a mile until they come across a heavily-guarded ornate caravan on the side of the road. As it turns out, the dragonborn is a senator, on his way back from a trip to the outer villages. They stopped to feed and water the horses, and the dragonborn accidentally dropped his keys in the caravan. The halfling is the locksmith from the next town over.
A stray dog, hungry and dirty, desperately needing help. It has a collar with a note attached to it which seems to be a cry for help!
A Rival party of the exact same class but different archetypes. They are a little obnoxious to their counterparts, and are out to do the same quest/mission/thing the party is up to.
A black knight traveling on horseback. Could be revealed to be some sort of illusion, or a wandering boss-type monster.
A hungry beggar, who if helped will come to their aid at a later date, if shunned will do the opposite.
A crazy old man who claims to know where a secret forest full of magic is located. You follow him but he is actually just trying to take you back to his home because he has lonely ever since his wife died.
Two older males each riding a giant snail. They sell common magic items, maps of nearby cave systems, and may teach the party how to enhance potions.
A man with piercing blue eyes, all visible flesh but his eyes wrapped in cloth bandages. Adorned in worn abd dirty cloths of a nobleman and carrying a religious text. He is polite and intense obviously religious and with a deep silky voice. Upon closer inspection, his flesh appears burned. Omens of doom and death follow in his wake.
A group of guardsmen transporting the corpse of their beloved countess back to her homeland. Upon conversation, the guardsmen believe foul play was involved and ask the adventurers to investigate.
Harrin, the halfling Chef and his employees, all halflings. They travel in search of the Gloomy Mushroom, said to be the most delicious thing there is. A big and gentle half-orc is their bodyguard. His nickname is Joy.

Problem is he never quit when he lost his sight. His buddies are hiding in the wilderness on the side of the road and have been lining up shots on the party with their slingshots and shortbows.
A band of travelling bards called Heart of a Dragon on a middle of their ‘biggest tour ever’ where they are playing in multiple cities of the world. They could be a recurring encounter on different roads.
A group of monks on a pilgrimage to a shrine of their order to meditate and receive training.
A travelling circus with a bunch of performers, one of whom is offering to perform their tricks (tarot readings or a future event cryptic reveal) at the side of the road for a couple of coin.
A zealot on a religious pilgrimage to a far off holy site. The pilgrim has only just started and is full of spunk and cheerful evangelism. This is the pilgrim's first pilgrimage and up until now has led a very sheltered life.
The wizard Leander from Leander's Luminous Laundrette and Lavender Lavatory. They have been assaulted on thier travels, both the wizard and thier apprentice were injured (the apprentices wounds poisoned and almost surely infected, gangrenous, and without the help of a cleric; probably fatal.) and thier wagon and gear stolen.
A band of highwaymen posing as religious ascetics on a pilgrimage to a nearby temple. They plan to rob the holy site and kill everyone inside its walls.
A farmer and family in tow, with three oxen, two sheep, five pigs, and seven geese following the heavily laden cart. A single rocking chair is perched precariously on top with a grandmother strapped into it.
A travelling troupe of down on thier luck performers with a small problem that the players can solve.

Help or Impress them here, and tales of the teams exploits precede them in the next big city.
A dimwitted farmer who was sold a cat in a bag (and had been told it was a piglet). The farmer is despondent and has spent every penny they had in the hopes of changing thier fortune.
A peddler with an old horse and half broken cart who has gotten stuck in a muddy rut. The peddler is actually a spy travelling under cover and the wagon was deliberately stuck to provide an excuse to make contact. Alternatively, the goods the peddler is carrying are obviously stolen from a local power or religious group and the players may or may not know about it happening, and the peddlar is willing to do a lot of things to not be caught.
An incompetent adventurer that wont take no for answer and plans to head wherever the players are going. The adventurer is friendly, but seems to be trying too hard.
A knight travelling with a very small, or nonexistant retinue. The knight has been forced to sell his prized warhorse for some reason, or have it knackered due to severe injury. Alternatively, the knight is actually a Paladin doing religious pennance and has vowed not to ride a horse or cart for the entirety of one month and one day.
A pack of dirt-covered Dwarf miners approach from off the road, offering to trade very valuable gems for some ale and food ("not trail rations, real food!"). They have just struck upon a massive gem deposit and wish to celebrate. Hope you have some with you.
A hunter approaches, asking for your aid. He is gaunt, obviously hungry. He says he has tracked an Owlbear to a nearby cave, and if you can help him kill it, it will feed his family for a month.
You see a child’s corpse in the middle of the road. A young boy, no more than eight or nine. His throat has been cut. If you stop to examine the body, you quickly see a search party coming toward you from the wood. They are looking for the boy. And you should not be so close to him.
You notice an elf slumped against a tree, covered in blood and on the verge of death. He reveals that he is a courier, and was ambushed by bandits. He tells you that they didn't find the message he carries, it is hidden inside his boot. He asks you to deliver the message for him to a woman named Ella Corwyn in the village of Threader's Hollow, a few days ride out of your way. If read, it is a simple message from her son, Dennis, who is training in wizardry with the elves. If delivered, Ella will feed your group (hearty lamb stew with delicious homemade biscuits) and offer shelter in her barn, alongside her prize pig Josephine.
A bear wearing a vest and derby hat is selling expertly-crafted Masterwork musical instruments from an ox-drawn cart hitched to a tree by the side of the road. His name is Sir William Bearington III. He does not speak but can understand and scratch out misspelled replies on a chalkboard in Common. Should you attempt to steal from him, he will attack without hesitation, as a Dire Bear. A small collection of bards of various races have formed an impromptu jam session in a clearing nearby. They sound great, and if asked, they attribute the sound to the quality of the instruments. Anyone with a proficiency in a musical instrument and enough gold in their purse must succeed on a DC 10 Will save, or feel compelled to buy one. Prices are high (2x), but the craftsmanship appears to be worth it. A flamboyantly painted sign on the side of the cart in bold calligraphy reads: “Musickyl Innstrumynts of Fynest Make, Experrtly Crafftyd by Sir Wm. Bearington III, Proprytor”
A trio of dirty peasants is riding past on an impossibly fancy carriage. They nervously smile and wave at your group. A DC 18 spot check will notice a smear of blood on the side of the carriage.
You come upon a group of a dozen or so young human men. They carry spears and wear leather armor. They appear to be trying to get your attention. If attacked, they immediately flee. If spoken with, they claim to be soldiers and demand a tax. If refused, they brandish their spears and talk about the wrath of the King, but will flee at the first sign of violence. In reality, they are cowards and deserters, trying to make their way South.
A man begs for help. He has been “robbed by bandits. Please, kind strangers, a ride into the village that’s just a day's travel away?” At the earliest opportunity, he will attempt to steal something of value and ride away on your horse. If it seems like a good idea, he will stab you first.
A very elderly couple flags you down. They ask you to leave some silver as a remembrance for their son, who was killed on this very spot twenty years ago.
A Giant sits in the clearing, he is weeping. The sounds of his tears echo across the open space. His wife was recently killed by adventurers, and he will fly into a rage upon seeing your weapons. If you manage to calm him down, he introduces himself as Urgirr and will beg you to find justice for his wife by killing the Orc Barbarian “Karnak the Bold”, the Human Wizard “Aldo Blackhand”, the Dwarf Cleric “Tordok of the Mountain”, and the Gnome Rogue “Swindlow Duffington Dingle”.
You come upon an impossibly elderly dwarf, naked as the day he was born, standing in the middle of the road demanding a 10 gp toll be paid. He wields a quarterstaff and proclaims himself to be the King of the Road. Thankfully, his long white beard shields his wrinkled nethers from your view.
A longbowman challenges all takers to a hunting contest. A 100 gold bet. Whosoever can kill the most birds in one hour wins the purse.
Morty Mennecaum, a traveling gnome alchemist has set up shop in this unlikely location. His prices are a bit above average, but he loves a joke and will negotiate if someone can make him laugh. His son, Manny, a burly fighter with a Longsword and steel shield, eyes you.
A ghost hovers in your path. He is Gregor Jantos. He asks you to deliver a message to his wife Alya in a nearby town: “It was no accident. Kelvar cut me open to get to you. Don’t trust him.” When you find Alya, she has been married to Kelvar for nine years and they have a daughter together. They are quite the happy family. Gregor died twelve years ago, and he wasn't well-liked in town. He had a reputation for getting drunk and beating on Alya.
A twelve-year-old boy sits cross-legged atop a boulder that seems out of place near this stretch of road. He wears a circlet of rope around his head. If spoken to, he will open his eyes and acknowledge you and appear to pay attention, but he will not speak. He will answer yes or no questions with shakes of his head. He has taken a vow of silence and is on his way to becoming a Monk. If begged for assistance, he can show you to his monastery where you may sleep, eat, and train for up to a week.
A townsman (Garg) is arguing with a traveling salesman (Phineas). He claims that he paid for 50 miracle cures, but the crate the salesman gave him only contained 46. The salesman claims that the customer must have drunk four of the doses of the cure because he “has a system”. The dispute is over 8 gold pieces.
A traveling salesman blows past you on a cart. He is being chased by half a village who run after with axes and pitchforks. They claim he took advantage of them by selling them colored whiskey in a vial and saying it would cure Miner’s Fever. If you catch the salesman, he claims it’s honest work, selling people hope for an otherwise hopeless disease. He will give back 75% of the town’s money if you Intimidate him (DC 15). If you beat his Intimidate DC by 10 or more, he gives it all back.
A patrol of royal guards is approaching. Six stout men, at least somewhat injured, guarding what seems to be an iron strongbox. They are traveling quickly. They say that they can tell right away that you are trustworthy folk, and they ask you to join them in transporting their incredibly valuable cargo to the King--which is several weeks travel out of your way--promising a small reward for the effort. Should you refuse, they again stress how incredibly valuable their cargo is, and explain that they are tired and weak from their journey, and vulnerable to bandits. If the strongbox is opened (by killing the guards and picking a difficult lock), it contains a letter from another kingdom--a peace treaty.
A group of four small children, no more than eight or nine years old, proudly stops your group. They are adventuring heroes, and want to join your party. To kill nasty trolls, and slay horrible dragons, and stay up as late as they want.
A crowd of townsfolk equipped with makeshift weapons and torches is marching towards a nearby city. They proclaim that they are going to do battle with a minor local lord because his taxes are too high. If there is a fight, they will certainly be slaughtered.
A small group of three older women, dressed in homespun and dirty shawls. One woman has a swollen foot and walks with a limp. One has a swollen and infected lip and drools when she speaks. A third has a twisted and infected finger, rendering her unable to grasp anything. One wields a set of shears, one a sack of prepared flax fiber, and a third a distaff and spindle. They are fey in disguise with strange power, prophetic foresight, and strange ethics. Alternatively, they are witches/hags with questionable motives, but a moral code of "rewarding" those who show them respect they feel they deserve.
An entymologist in absurd getup with a comedically large bug net, short shorts, pith helmet, socks and sandals. They ask for assistance catching something only they can see.
You hear them before you see them. As you approach a bend in the road you hear two voices, each loudly complaining about the other. “You said you knew where we were going!” “I said that it was East, you’re the one who said a map was a waste of money!” A female Goliath sits on a fallen tree at the side of the road. A female Halfling is perched on her shoulders passing a wineskin to her companion.
A seemingly normal looking man who greets the party on the road. He will mostly address the party member with the most magic jewelry. After some awkward conversation he will quickly make an attempt to steal the jewelry and run. When the party persues him he turns into an ancient copper dragon and flies off. They wont be able to track him. Later if the party is investigating crimes in a nearby city they might catch word of an illegal magic black market. The copper dragon is the kingpin of the operation and will give the items back when confronted.
The sky darkens and it begins to rain heavily. You see a man coming the other way, carrying a heavy umbrella and wearing a heavy coat. It rains for as long as the man is in sight, and then immediately clears.
Seven dwarven miners bid you good day as they go to work in their mine.
A cartographer passes who is willing to sell a copy of his map of the area for 40gp. With this map the party can travel at an additional 1d4 miles per day of travel within the area of the map.
You find a wandering disciple of Gond (or any other similar god of crafting) who offers to repair any broken or damaged equipment.
A wounded young knight laying down on the side of the road. His quest to save the princess from the dragon had failed, again. He went with a few adventerurs and mercenaries but he was the only survivor left.
A fortune teller sits on the side of the road in a cart that she seems to operate her business out of. There's a sign on it that explains that a simple fortune is 1 silver but a more intricate fortune is 1 gold. (If asked to prove her talent, she performs a simple druidcraft cantrip showing tomorrow's weather and tells them to come back tomorrow to see her if she's correct. This may be a good place for an insight check). If any party member gets a fortune told, the DM can choose the fortune or she can foretell imminent death in their path.
A gnome is undeneath a curious wagon, fiddling with a mechanical apparatus and swearing up a storm. He refuses help and insists you would just get in his way.
Three high-elven sages can be seen bickering among themselves, arguing over the interpretations of a certain book on Arcana. The party is completely invisible to them if the sages are not addressed/greeted.
A man with bandages over his eyes, a boot slightly larger than its mate, and a sort of mechanical prosthetic hand being led a pseudonatural hound. When questioned about the clearly unnatural dog, he just says "I trust him. He led me back out of there".
A chef with a small restaurant/tavern set up on a rarely traveled roadside wondering why he never gets any customers.
A tattered old man sitting by the roadside will ask for change to help feed his dog. If you spend enough time with them, the dog reveals itself to be a druid and the pair attempt to rob you.
An elf and a dwarf on a cart pulled by a couple of oxen. Both wear expensive, gaudy clothes. The dwarf is puffing on a clay pipe and has an ornate repeating crossbow on his lap. They offer the party a chance to buy their wares and show them the collection of arms and armour in the cart; all used, some very obviously, with dented armour, nicked blades and blood stains. There are a few good pieces and at a good price. If there are any magical items, the vendors are unaware of this and sell them as standard. These characters make good money from looting battlefields, most of this haul from a recent clash between two nobles' armies. At your discretion the elf may have a wand or two up his sleeve in event of trouble.
A woman and six small children approach in an ox-drawn wagon. They appear dirty, tired and apprehensive, but if the party is friendly the mother will share her story: the father has run out on his family, and they could no longer afford to live in their previous home. The mother offers the party a single gold coin if they would accompany them to the next village. Rumor has it there are wolves in the area, and they are scared they won't make it to town before nightfall.
A traveling minstrel and his lover approach on a donkey. He offers to play you a tune for a coin. He is the worst singer you have ever heard. He takes your coin and carries on down the road.
A large magic stone hut. The hut is immune to all magic as well as edged weapons. Inside is the home of a helpful powerful Wizard with many magic items and potions. He has made a shop which he sells him magic for slightly lower prices that the Handbook's. He will buy any rare magic for 110% of its actual cost. He buys magic at 90% of its actual cost. Lots of people seem to come buy in the day and no one seems to be there at night. This is because he talks in his sleep. On any given day, there is a 1/3 chance that he will use d4 spells in his sleep.
Two famous swordsmen, having a duel. One may or may not have cheated in the past, and may or may not be planning to cheat in the future. Thier followers are attempting to either stop the fight, and seeking help or are discussing terms and seeking a neutral arbitrator.
A single, lonely shoe with a busted heel. The shoe is animated, and has a personality, always complaining that "My dogs are tired!". It may or may not be a wizard pulling a trick on you via enchantment.
A traveling artist has set up a canvas in a nearby field and is painting some wildflowers. For 5 copper pieces, he will make a charcoal drawing on paper for you or any of your party members. For 5 gold pieces, he will stop his flower painting and spend time following the party painting a portrait of one of you until he is finished. If prompted about his work, he will get excited and show you his sketchbook. It's full of various drawings and portraits of people he's passed on the road. He says he never forgets a face and will even draw someone according to details given by you for 10 copper pieces. He's surprisingly accurate even if you aren't the best at describing things.
A portly drunken satyr mostly preoccupied with finding out where the next party is.
A pompous fool of an elf who has spent over 400 years mastering the call of a species of wolf which has since gone extinct in the area. Will demonstrate the howl with almost no provocation and expects you to be impressed.
A portly old goliath in a red coat with white trim dragging a big bag full of presents
Horned devil with a box in his hands. Offers to allow you to take a look inside in exchange for your soul.
A grizzled paladin with a greatsword and a floating shield in a desperate fight with two invisible stalkers.
Firbolg sleeping, held in the trunk of his pet elephant who dutifully trundles down the road, stepping politely aside to allow for traffic.
Three hill giants who have been assigned to sack a nearby civilization. They're lost and want directions from the party.
A hermit, proudly extending his arms towards bypassers, holding a single old sock with a hole on the heel. Loudly exclaiming "Look at my sock! Isn't it wonderful?! This sock has been in my family for generations and never once been wet! It's not magical nor special, but it is, simply put, the best sock ever made!"
A glum-looking demon lord pulling a wheelbarrow in which is lying a very drunk, very happy dwarf loudly singing "86 bottles of beer on the wall!" If interrupted, the cleric burps loudly, frowns and then shrugs, starting again at "1 billion beetles of butt in the well" before giggling and falling asleep. At this the demon lord sits down and begins weeping.
An old man and his four mute sons, all dressed in rags, one carrying a large walking stick. In truth, the old man is the head of a giant mage, and his "sons" are his limbs, polymorphed into a group of humans. The old man will ask for a share of the party's rations, and his sons will eat and eat until no food is left.
An oddly smelling gnome with various magic items hidden under his cloak such as a small pocket watch that turns you invisible for six seconds, a hand with candles on it's fingertips that when lit paralyze every creature with 14 or more charisma in a 100ft radius, and a blank booklet that does nothing but looks extremely important to all creatures who see it.
Angmar Bladewalker - human knight - Brown hair and blue eyes, she proudly wears a scar across one side of her face. She is always a bit late, a bit eccentric, and has an otuyagh in the stables that she raises as a pet. Deft with a blade though. She moved out of her house because it was haunted.
Zane Drake - High Elf poet - He has very long, curled, brown hair shaved on the left side and brown eyes, with rough golden skin. He has a soft, typical face with a short moustache. He speaks loudly and dramatically at all times. In addition, he knows the true name of an angel.
Ayleth Falavaul - Half-Elf merchant - She has long, curled, dyed black hair and green eyes. She speaks quietly at all times and is deeply religious. Her homeland was destroyed by a storm.
Doran thunderdelver - Dwarf noble - Endlessly impatient, Doran is always shouting about something or other. He has short blond hair and a long beard, which his wife braids every morning. A old friend wants revenge on him.
Porath - Dragonborn wizard - Suspicious and prone to growling, he cares deeply about the local townsfolk. A man named Kavarr stole one of his spellbooks.

Scardey Bat, Boo Boo and Poe run up to Ruby with the canvas underneath a sheet Ruby: What is it Guys? Boo Boo: Poe thinks he's officially learned how to improvise Scardey Bat: He told us, that when he ran out of the shade of blue to color Matti's hoodie, he decided to go for a different look for the whole painting Poe: Indeed, we've all seen ourselves, living in Gloomsville, same time, same style, same clothes blah blah blah... Well feast you eyes in this!! he lifts the sheet and reveals the painting has the characters in a city, a with completely different looks Ruby: I have Several Questions... Poe: Proceed Ruby: Why is does everyone have their hair and skin tones different Poe: I've looked at one of Frank and Len's comic books and saw 2 people look almost identical to Matti and Brier, So I thought it'd be a splendid idea to incorporate that same thing into the painting Ruby: Yeah... that's great Poe Poe: Anything for a friend takes The canvas and flies away Ruby: Ugh... nothing's going according to plan! Skull Boy: frying burgers It's alright Ruby, because I have a good back up I think I might be related to a long line of fry cooks Ruby: How is that helpful? Skull Boy: Think about it, Matti likes Burgers right? Ruby: Yeah.... Skull Boy: and Brier likes Pizza Rolls, I can't make those yet but a pizza in the oven is a close second right?

Iris: Trust me they'll love it pats her shoulder and walks away Ruby: Well at least the decorations look good Still need a cake and we're out of ingredients. Frank and Len walk in holding a box Frank: Hey Ruby, we're almost done with the music for the party. We couldn't think of an original song since the lyrics "Matti" "Brier" and "Birthday" are hard to rhyme Len: The ones I thought of were "too mean" apparently... Frank: you tried rhyming "Brier" with "Liar" Len: The point is, we picked up every one of their favorite songs we could find or think of Ruby: But we don't know any of Brier's favorite songs Frank: Well they listen to the same music right? they set the box down and goes through the tapes Len: We got 'em all on cassette tapes Sunflower Honest Flashing lights, we could only find the instrumental version of it though Frank: and we bought that abacus you said you needed they hold up a stuffed animal Ruby: Uh... guys? That's a stuffed Platypus Len: We didn't know what an abacus was... Frank: but hey! it makes sounds sqeezes it and it makes a Perry the Platypus sound See? Ruby: facepalms The scene fades to Matti climbing the tower Matti: looks down Ugh..... that's pretty high..... hears a music box Huh? he looks up and can almost see the top Matti climbs faster until he eventually reaches the top Matti: looks up breathing heavily and sees Brier Brier: You could have just used the stairs Matti: Like that would get me up here any faster... Brier: looks at the earth Look out there and just take it all in... Matti: We're actually outside of the earth's atmosphere... Brier: what a beautiful world, full of wonders and excitement... there's so much to do, so many things to see out there... I wish I can see it all Matti: Uh... There's still time Brier: smiles That is a nice thought but.... No Matti: Uh.... Brier: Not yet at least... gets up and looks at him So, How did you like this little game of ours? Matti: Well... it made me feel enjoyment, and curious with each individual clue... but in the end, it made feel that there's much more to life then following other people's expectations Brier: All that from a game? Matti: I know it's weird but... Brier: You're last card said "Go to the place you'd expect to find me" So here we are Matti: Yeah... you found me, so there for you found my gift to you Brier: Ah! Ah!

I love it! Thank you Matti. Matti: And I know we said no additional bonus gifts, Brier: We had no such rule, Matti: Yes we Did, so I took full liberty of renting out a whole movie auditorium so we can watch... he pulls out copies of Castle in The Sky and The Corpse Bride on Blu Ray Matti: Both of our favorite movies Brier: smiles Who has the coolest best friend ever?

I'll race you home she straps his backpack onto her broomstick and jumps off the roof of the tower Matti stands there still in shock Matti: smiles YES!!! That was the best moment if my life hands down!! he then runs and jumps off the roof The scene shifts back to Ruby and the gang finishing up the party Ruby Okay, Quick run down.... We needed decorations and they're pretty good So.... check she checks off a cliffboard Ruby: We needed a cake, and we got is a pizza and some burgers Skull Boy: Don't worry, they'll love it Ruby: checks it And lastly we needed a banner but we got one in spanish, i thought we were throwing a party, Not a fíesta!

Ruby: Now let's make this a party for not just this occasion, but for everyone All: Yeah!

2018.10.31 03:56 Laser_DoggTales from the Road (2)
In late september we made our way into the small town of Loveland, Colorado for a wedding. It was my cousin Neil that was getting married. Cousin in the Kentucky sense at least, in reality he was the son of my mother’s cousin, but in my family we often summarize: distant family are all cousins. He had moved out to Colorado years before Erin and I had built out our van and made our own way down that road. It so happened in our travels that we were nearby, and those Southern familial bonds know no distance, either by blood or time. We were invited with enthusiasm despite the near decade that had passed since our last meeting. We caught up with the kind of jovial, light conversation that these reunions often create. That way in which both parties are keenly aware that they are essentially talking to a stranger and thus overcompensate with extra enthusiasm. We told Neil of some of our recent adventures and his eyes sparkled while he examined our small traveling home. After a bit more talk, Neil generously invited us to the rehearsal that evening, saying that there would be no shortage of good food afterward. “In the meantime,” he added “You should check out the sculptures around town! There’s a crazy amount of bronze foundries around here.” He was not exaggerating. Loveland, despite being a small town, holds about twenty bronze foundries and is quite a hub for the arts on the Front Range. Following his suggestion we explored The Benson Sculpture Garden, which threads its braided walkways around the Northern tip of Lake Loveland. Within the garden’s turns and hedges stand a myriad of bronze statues. We gazed with fascination at the wrinkled eyes of laughing old men, the billowing fur of a high plains coyote. There was crafted here, with astounding realism, lions stalking through grass and a backpackers crumpled clothing, the more abstract shapes of jack rabbits, and surrealist designs like Monument in Right Foot Major. All cast and crafted in the same golden-brown metal. Rounding a corner we came to what I found the most striking yet. Surrounded by meticulously groomed grasses and shrubs, almost concealed by them, the base plate reads: OUT OF THE MYSTIC PAST BRONZE Sculptor: Fritz White This plate sits before a cairn-like stone stack, on top of which stands (or rather crouches) a great figure. Twice the size of a normal man is a titanic shaman. His knees bent like a frog about to leap, one arm hanging out wide like a sunning vulture, the other thrusting forward, into the viewer’s face, a great staff tipped by a wolf’s skull. Feathers hang from the empty eyed skull and the man wears the skin of the wolf, its limp headskins atop his own. His own mouth is open in the act of crying some incantation that also seems to shout from the empty eye sockets on his staff. The entire image seems to spring suddenly from the grass like an ambush, both forever frozen in the present and strangely filled with motion, tied to some forgotten moment ages gone. I stood enraptured, and even when we moved on to see weary vaqueros on their horses and a grazing moose, that skull tipped staff seemed to spear through my mind, stark and living like a winter wind. That evening we drove our van out toward the mountains that dominate the horizon there. The church sat outside the town of Prairie Stove which is situated between great knees of the Rocky Mountains. Here in this flat space, surrounded by the high mountain walls, it seems natural that people would choose to settle here. Somehow inviting and looming, protected and wild. The little town is nestled into the stony folds; a cat in the lap its master. We drove through the quaint “downtown” area toward the church. Many of the little shops were closing for the evening, and the remaining warm lights shone out against the white trunked aspens. They dropped their leaves like thousands of golden coins into the street. I could feel Erin beside me, just as drawn in by the sights. “It's like a dream” she remarked from the passenger seat. We pulled up to church, and the stained reds and blues from the muraled windows drew us in as if we were moths. As soon as we opened the sanctuary's great cedar doors, warmth and merry voices poured out into the autumn air, and we closed the chill behind us. The evening was punctuated with laughter and vaguely familiar faces. After a brief runthrough of the coming ceremony, the small crowd ushered into a side hall to find rows of steaming spaghetti and glistening crystal glasses. Neil’s father beamed with pride and to many different guests declared some version of his son’s coming of age. “My boy,” he’d say, “My boy, is a man now. Can you believe that? A man.” Neil too, despite his usual stoic demeanor, could not fully contain his joy. Many guests noted his wistful smiles and glances at Julia. “His soon-to-be bride!” his family said, cherishing every word of it, like it was a honey in their mouths, so they said it again many times. “Just look at them, over there, whispering sweet nothings to each other.” Julia’s family too gushed at her radiating picture of womanhood. The excitement in the room was as shared as the red liquid in the glasses. Eventually the food was eaten and the wine was drained, the priest greeted and blessed his way to the door, preparing to take his leave. He stopped Neil at one point and to the approval of those nearby said, “Tomorrow young man, tomorrow you begin one of the most sacred journeys. It is an arrival and a beginning all mixed into one. The greatest joy of The Father - second only to His unity to you - is the unity of his children. Never forget this moment. Sleep well,” he said and turned outward “and I will see you all tomorrow, don’t keep these two up much later!” After a bit more conversation the crowd drained to the parking lot, but even outside, the spell of merry making bound us there for another hour. Finally though, Neil and Julia were pressured to their cars with many big-day-tomorrow’s. In saying final goodnights, Neil realized one last chore as he shook my hand. “Ah, Father Durrow asked me to turn off the lights and lock up.” he looked tiredly at the gathering he had just navigated. “No worries man,” I said, “I’ll go make sure it gets taken care of now, you just get out of here.” With a look of exhausted appreciation, Neil made his escape, and I slipped off toward the church. Once again I opened the great cedar doors, this time only releasing the sound of aged hinges and dim light. As the door closed softly behind, I took a moment to take in the silence, suddenly feeling tired from the socializing and perhaps the wine. The long chapel space too seemed to rest in the quiet, and my eyes slid along the rows of pews only broken by the occasional supporting beam. To the front, glistening in the half light, the polished implements of the Eucharist were arranged neatly and a golden crucifix stood in the center of the same oaken table. The shining Christ there, filled the room despite its small size. A warm glow cast off of its surface from the lights above. The lights above. They were dimmer now, it seemed. Nearly off entirely. I looked around for the switch, but now I could see nothing at all. Nothing but a red glow of the crucifix. My breath caught and I felt the wine in my face. The crucifix seemed to burn and flicker, fading into flames, both there and not. The fiery glow grew to faintly light the room, casting long shadows by the pillars, there were many now. More than I remembered, like great tree trunks on the edge of my vision. I was startled by a single hollow beat of a great drum, like a heartbeat in my ear. Suddenly there was noise and echos of noise. Sounds as the remembrance of sounds. The crucifix was a fire, and sparking embers slipped from the table, dancing to the chapel dome. I felt surrounded by murmurs of voices and water and leaves. Then a smell. Wood, smoke, and something else, something deeply familiar. A hot, thick scent. Before I could place it, something passed me. A shape brushed by, approaching the flames. A young man, carrying a great weight, the carcass of an elk half-processed. He seemed dwarfed by the great animal, but he struggled forward. Blood ran down his shoulders, and his arrow still pierced the beast. I could hear his heavy steps, muted by the dull earth and whispers spread through the pillars and trees. A great shout came from ahead and a lean man stepped proudly into the light. He ran to the boy and again a drum beat from the dark. Shadowy men and women sprang from the brush and old trees and raced to the fire. There was a great figure now. He stood behind the flames, appearing to rise from them. He wore the skin of a great wolf over his head and on a staff hung the same animal’s skull. The boy stopped his approach short and the gathering grew silent, the reverence was as clear as the sense of anticipation. The shaman lifted his staff, then slowly swept it across the people. Not the man’s, but those empty bone sockets seemed to look. At last, they found the boy and his kill. Even the night birds silenced, waiting for something. Some younger looked eagerly from the shaman to the boy, while the elders looked nowhere in particular. There was only quiet wind. It came so suddenly that I shouted too. The frozen shaman, burst from his judgements into a sound. A high sound and a low sound. The crowd joined him, while some of the women ran to retrieve the elk. All sang. It was incomprehensible, but it sounded like mountains and wind and generations of men. For the first time I felt the stars shining through the canopy of trees and the drums rolled wildly. The shaman danced and the people followed. The smell of meat rose in the air and I could not break the gaze of that bobbing white skull. The dance drew around the fire over and over turning in time. At last, as the man eclipsed the flames, he turned toward me and danced my way. The drum beat in my ears with the slap of bare feet. He moved like a smoke and a serpent up the row of trees, his procession behind him. Sweat broke on my forehead, but I was fixed on that skull, those hollow orbs gazing everywhere at once. The shaman and the young man stood before me now. The boy looking quizzically at the holyman. The holyman looking gravely at me. At me. I knew he was looking at me. With the same gaze as the skull. Piercing and omniscient. His chest filled and ribs flared with mine. He shouted with such force that I could barely hear my own. The skull thrust into my face. It filled my ears and my vision with beads and drums and blood. And it rose to a white pitch. Then I was left alone in an empty chapel. Smoke still filled my nose, but the crucifix was restored. The pillars were lit softly by the dim lights and the pews were unoccupied. Still looking at the serene Christ, my hand felt along the wall to the switch, and I threw it all into midnight. As I turned to leave I left something under my foot. Reaching down, I could feel my hand trembling as it grasped into the darkness. There on the cold floor my fingers found a small orb. I did not look, I could not have seen it, but it felt like a small wooden bead. “From a rosary…” I muttered as I dropped it again. Its rapping on the floor was the last thing I heard as I closed the great red doors behind me. I joined the scattering throng and wished everyone a good evening, their minds already turned toward the morning. All around drew the dark masses of the mountains. I felt their pull at my own bones. In those mountains there are a great many canyons and bypasses where the stone has been hewn by man or water. One can see a great many things. Layer upon layer of stone sits repeating. Earth that has been petrified under millennial suns, under millennial seas thrust at once and together under the present light like a history of everything exposed under one present repeating forever and forever the only remnant of the shrouded past. I had joined the scattering throng and wished everyone a good evening, their minds already turned toward the morning.
