2023.06.05 18:00 Quotetheraven67 I loved nature

I loved nature. Everything about it was majestic and raw. I loved the trees down to their roots, the wind, and streams. Rivers especially have a magical quality. No matter how deadly on the surface they look safe, though the undercurrent is below.
I spent hours reading and painting listening to the sounds of babbling brooks watching the birds flit from flower to flower. It’s a rare kind of solitude we all need. A place to nourish your creative spirit.
One sunny afternoon at my local ravine I saw something straight out of the fairytales I used to read as a child. Somehow in this dangerous river there was a pure white horse.
It struck me as an odd and beautiful sight. This was the perfect subject for a painting on the fragility of life. An impassable stream with a horse against all odds thriving. This place had taken so many lives as people would try to cross or swim, but here was this gentle beast?
However after a while I wanted to disregard my safety. It moved towards the bank and I felt the urge to pet it, but my instincts told me not. I never did that afternoon or anytime.
Without fail that horse was always in that river from that day on even when I went to paint the stars. That night I saw serpentine pupils as this hauntingly pretty animal crept toward the shore. Its eyes had a sinister glow to them. Now this was too creepy to possibly ignore, it never left the waters edge, but neighed this deep sound softly.
After that night I didn’t paint at the ravine for a while, absolutely convinced I met something unholy there. No horse could survive the torrent underneath the river and none had eyes like that.
There was another place by that waterway to paint and it connected to the lake. Who could have predicted what I would see. I never believed superstitions, but now I take them for facts. This was a warning. A costly warning.
As I went to paint I noticed a woman was at the rocky edge of the lake petting that animal. However it had only grown more enchanting sprouting cat tails for a mane and tail. This isn’t possible. Horses like this don’t exist.
“You’re so pretty” she cooed as she petted that thing.
I begged her not to take the invitation and pleaded with her not to be swayed. The stream and its waters were unforgiving. She was unnerved by my testimony as the creature lowered itself so she could climb on.
“Don’t do this! This isn’t natural. Water horses aren’t real. This thing can’t be real.” I didn’t know what this horse was or was capable of.
Those eyes seemed triumphant, and evil. It seemed to sneer as she climbed atop it. That very second its teeth turned to bloody fangs as it neighed. It rose on its hind legs as its rider panicked, she wouldn’t be able to dismount the creature. She tried with all her might but it was as if her skin was glued to fiend.
With uncharted speed it ran into the loch dooming the woman. She was screaming for my help as she disappeared beneath the water. There was nothing I could do as it devoured her. The water turned red and her entrails began to float towards the shore like seaweed.
I couldn’t believe what I was witnessing. The horse rose from the water with a human leg in its jaws. Her leg. It ate her in less than five minutes. All of her feasted on by this monster. It looked me dead in the eye, and I knew I had to avoid this place, the water, forsake it all together.
I ran away knowing I had been haunted by a demon that would have claimed my life. I’ll never return. There are people that die every year at the hands of the river and now you know part of why. If you see a horse in the water don't go near it let alone touch it, just run.

HELP - my sad beets?
Root veggies were/are thriving except my beets, who have grown painfully slowly. I put all my root veggie seeds - radishes, turnips, beets - in the ground on the same day, March 20th of this year, in central/coastal NJ. Turnips are thriving and I'm beyond thrilled considering it's my first time growing roots - which makes me even more confused that my beets have barely grown. In addition to Dr Earth all-purpose fertilizer, I supplement it with Sea Magic kelp seaweed fertilizer, which I figured would cover the Boron requirement for beets.
In the meantime, I've planted some tomatoes in the bed that I expect to take over once the turnips re out of the ground. I'm hoping they'll give the beets some shade once it gets hotter in the summer.
As you can see in the pic - I've got a lot going on in a pretty small plot. I live in an apartment and only have about a 5 x 8 foot decorative boarder bed to work in. It was barren and full of trash/broken glass when I moved in 2 years ago and it's taken a lot of effort to get this soil into decent shape.
Any insight or product recommendations are appreciated - thanks! Even if it's too late to save them this year, I'd love to learn for next time.

2023.06.04 04:00 Kazevenikov Cryptid Chronicle - Chapter 31

Thanks and Credits in the Comments Section due to LONG chapter.
Chapter 31: A Whale of a Tale and it’s All True
Kalai watched in shock and awe as the two humans collectively lost their minds, hopping up and down and letting loose a series of high pitched vocalizing as she, Papa, and Mama Sakalbi stared in confusion at the two ecstatic aliens.
Andy turned and ran back to where Kalai and her parents were still staring in amazement and held his hand out, face alight and happier than she’d ever seen him before. “Binoculars! Quick! I want to see who’s out there!” Mama Sakalbi tentatively held them out, and he took them with a nod of thanks before rushing back to the bow. Kalai started as he jumped up on the bow and balanced against the roller horns to spot the black and white whales that were swimming fast towards the net.
“Eyes on Mama Shachi! Look, over there, see her?” Kalai approached cautiously as Andy pointed in the direction of a cluster of porpoising black shapes that were coming nearer.
“Eyes on! I got Grammie Slick out there too; the WHOLE POD’S HERE!” Jackie cut loose an undulating cry and waved her hands as little geysers of water and air shot out from the water on the other side of the net.
Kalai nearly jumped when a miniature version of the Orcas from the clone tank at Headquarters breached the water, leaping almost twice her height into the air before splashing back down in a massive wave.
“Look at that! Butterball’s getting some good air these days!” Andy crowed as he hopped back down from the bow and passed the binoculars to Jackie.
“Butterball?” Mama Sakalbi asked as she and Papa joined them. Kalai stared as the Orcas formed a line and charged at the middle of the ‘S’ bend in the net before diving down in front of it, sending a wave that pushed the corks back. She saw the spouts and the dorsal fins rise again for another charge at the net.
“He’s the baby, only about four years old. Grammie Slick’s taking the family hunting, see how they’re flattening the net out? We’re about to have a great fucking day!” Andy took Jackie’s shotgun and took it back to the cabin as Kalai and her parents crowded the rail.
“What are they doing?” Mama Sakalbi’s question was directed at Jackie and the woman turned to answer with a gigantic smile.
“Herding! See the ones circling around the net?” Jackie pointed to the two dorsal fins that were almost invisible in the fog that was starting to burn off in the morning sun that had started to clear the eastern mountains. “They’ll be starting to round up small schools of salmon once they’re done turning our net into a reef. Right now, they’re running along the line and probably seeing what they have to work with.”
Mama Sakalbi did a double take, “You must be joking, that level of intelligence would almost be-”
“Human?” Jackie interrupted with a smile, “Yeah, that’s our original teachers out there. We learned to fish from them.”
“I was going to say ‘sentient’, but I take your point. What I want to know is, what are they doing?” Mama Sakalbi gestured out at them, with a bewildered look on her face.
“They’re using the net as a sea wall. Thing is, the net’s hard to see in the water, but the fish can feel it. They’ll put their heads into the net, but that doesn’t catch them. They’ll try to swim around it so that’s why we put an ‘S’ bend. That’s where most of the fish get tangled.” Andy returned and picked up the explanation. “See in the center of the line? That fin with the black and white little checkmark behind it? That’s Grammie Slick, the Matriarch. She’s around sixty now, and grew up out here LONG before you all came down. They don’t always do this, but I guess with you all keeping the fishing fleets docked, she saw the net and wanted a big meal for the family. They’re going to keep pushing the net until it’s in the shape of a crescent and herd a bunch of small schools into a big baitball with pickets to keep the fish pinned in the middle. You watch, there’ll be salmon jumping all over in the middle as they school up.”
“That’s when you’ll see them charge up the center and take big old mouthfuls of salmon. It’ll be a smorgasbord for ‘em!” Jackie pulled up Andy’s omnipad and started recording.
“Wait, but you hate seals for competing with you for food, why are you this excited about Orcas who take so much more?” Papa asked as he also took out his omnipad and started recording as the pod of Orcas finished repositioning their net just as Andy described.
“Because they’re using the nets as a reef to trap the fish! See? Look! There they go! The wolves are out scaring every salmon in the area here!” Kalai dug her own omnipad out at Andy’s words and watched as the dorsal fins sank below the waves, with only a faint and fading wake to tell where they’d gone.
“Now watch ‘em set pickets! They’re going to start patrolling the outside of the net. When they get enough salmon in the middle, they’re going to charge. When they do, watch the entire middle section of our corks go under from the salmon trying to get away. They get whole heaping mouthfuls of food and we get a full net!”
Kalai watched the Orcas swimming in circles around the net like Helix Sharks, and felt a pang of fear seeing the big predators that seemed so gentle and inquisitive in the tank. “But what if they get caught in the net?”
Jackie suppressed a laugh before sweeping an arm out at the net. “I’ve never seen that happen before, and I haven’t even heard of it happening before… at least not here in the Salish Sea. All our Orcas grew up around these nets, so they’ll either avoid them or use them like they are right now.”
“I think it’s because they can see them and the fish can’t. Either way, we’re in for a show!” Andy patted Kalai on the back before pushing Kalai and Mama Sakalbi forward.
For a long while, the surface was calm, save for the circling Orcas as they all watched. Then, by degrees, there was movement on the surface of the water as fish the length of Kalai’s arm started to jump and kick in the baitball. Kalai watched, fascinated, as Orcas seemed to appear and disappear along the edges but never approached the middle of the net.
All the fins disappeared from the surface and an eerie stillness settled over the water. Suddenly, the water in the middle of the crescent erupted, with hundreds of fish shooting out of the water and a sudden surge that hit and pushed the corks outward before they sank completely out of sight. Jackie and Andy started vocalizing those strange undulating cries again, raising their fists in the air before shouting something in their language. From as best as Kalai could guess, it was encouragement as the Orcas started breaching and jumping. In those moments, Kalai could catch glimpses of their mouths full of salmon.
Kalai watched as the terrified fish swarmed towards the net, and watched as many seemed to jump over it and swim away as the Orcas gorged themselves on the enormous school of salmon they had trapped. It was an awe inspiring sight to see, and Kalai lost herself in the moment watching the amazing display of symbiotic hunting and fishing between them and the Orcas.
The engine of the boat turning over broke the spell they were all under as Andy moved the boat at a dead slow pace back towards the net. “Alright, let’s haul it in and reset for ‘em! Jackie! Get on the bow with the billhook!” Jackie whooped in agreement and gently pushed passed Kalai to grab a long pole with a small metal hook at the end.
“We’re gonna have to work fast. They’re hungry, and we all want salmon today,” Andy called over the sound of the engine as they approached the giant buoy that marked the end of the net. “Doc! Open that hatch back there and watch your step! Mrs. Vaida, stand clear in the cabin; I want no accidents today, and three on deck’s going to be a crowd with how many fish we’re going to be taking in. Kalai, I want you back in the-”
Kalai shook her head as she put her omnipad away. “I can do it! Let me help!” she was riding the high feeling of watching the Orcas, and seeing Andy and Jackie preparing to go to work while she was to be just a passenger galled her.
Kalai saw Andy give Jackie a look that she couldn’t quite interpret. “Alright, but you’ll work with me picking fish. Jackie, you’re on the Drum; trade places with me!”
Kalai saw Jackie huff and give Andy a piercing look as she handed off the billhook. “Watch out for jellies, they tend to explode,” the native woman muttered to Kalai as she took over at the net drum’s controls. Kalai was about to volunteer to grab the line with the hook, given her longer reach, but Andy had already leaned almost all the way over the side. Kalai had a momentary scare as Andy seemed to dip forward, seemingly in danger of falling overboard, until he seemed to almost levitate himself using his lower legs back into the boat and pulled the line over the roller horns. She stood there for a moment, unsure of what to do when Andy braced a foot against the side and began to pull on the line and feed it back towards Jackie.
“Way, haul away, we’ll hang and haul together! Way, haul away, haul away Joe!”
Though she didn’t understand the words, Kalai knew a sailing song when she heard one and didn’t wait for any instruction. She moved forward opposite Andy and lent a hand, pulling the heavy line in to the cadence of his chant. After two verses, Kalai heard the whine of hydraulics and the slack in the line behind them went taught.
“Stand back! Here we go!” Andy called to her and the line began pulling the net back aboard. Kalai looked back to see that Jackie had wrapped the line around the center pole of the drum, with the wheel turning to pull the line and net in out of the water. A small set of guide poles that moved when Jackie twitched the controls kept the line evenly distributed on the drum as the first corks and the dripping wet net began to appear out of the water.
“Put your hoods up!” Andy yelled at her over the noise of the machines, and demonstrated the motion. “It’ll keep the water, seaweed and Jellies out of your face and eyes, and take this!” Andy tossed her what appeared to be a handkerchief and he mimed the act of tying it around her face like a mask.
“What about you? You’re sleeveless!” Kalai’s voice was slightly muffled from the cloth as she tied it around her face before pulling up both hoods.
Andy didn’t respond, except to grin at her as he leaned out to watch the net coming up out of the water before it got pulled aboard.
From behind her, Kalai heard Jackie start singing another human sailing song. It was a bit fast paced, and Andy joined in for the chorus. On the third time she heard it, she joined in too.
“Blow ye winds in the mornin’, Blow ye winds, high ho! Haul away your running gear, And blow ye winds, high ho!
“Coming up!” Andy shouted as there were several loud thunks before six large salmon appeared in the giant fluorescent green tangle of the net. The drum stopped, bringing the fish to a halt as Andy pulled on the corkline and scurried his hands back and forth, gathering the net up as he did until he reached the first fish. Kalai watched in awe as he seemed to magically pull the fish from the tangle and shake it out onto the deck. The second one seemed to be resting on top of the tangle and he flipped it over the corkline and shook the fish out onto the deck.
“Just watch these first few. When you get a feel for how I’m doing this, jump in. Until then, slide these beauties back towards the stern. Jackie’ll pitch ‘em into the hold.”
Kalai nodded and watched Andy’s movements intently. It looked like sorcery, with how fast he moved his hands and zeroed in on a fish. As soon as he was done, he’d whistle to Jackie, who kept singing the cadence out to pull more of the net in, only to stop when more fish were pulled up and over the horns.
The song changed twice before Kalai felt confident enough to jump in. She almost got tangled in the net herself trying to pull out her first fish, but Andy gave the net a quick tug and she was free again. Maddeningly, the fish had simply fallen out of the net without any help from her, and she fumed just long enough for Andy to point to one that was closer to her.
“Hoist up the thing, batten down the whatsit! What’s that thing spinning, somebody should stop it! Turn hard to Port! That’s not Port, NOW I GOT IT! Trust me, I’m in control!”
On the second refrain, Kalai managed to dig her first fish out and drop it to the deck. She let out a whoop, and Andy paused for a moment to give her a quick applause.
“That’s one, girl! There’s a thousand left if we’re lucky!” Jackie called out as Andy sang a verse and tackled another fish in the net.
“Keep an eye on the lead line; make sure it doesn’t go over the corks!” Andy called as Kalai ran down her second fish and was about to throw the excess net over the other side. She stopped, and Andy helped her get the fish without tangling the net.
It took until the end of the song for Kalai to find her rhythm, and soon she and Andy were running down fish in the net in a crisp and quick manner. Kalai felt like she could go faster, but Andy had cautioned her to keep pace with the songs, as there was still a lot of net to go. When Kalai spared a glance at the length of net still in the water, she saw that Andy wasn’t kidding. It looked like they hadn’t even really started to reel it all in. Ok, it’s hard work, but so is sailing, and he’s my size so I should be able to keep up with him. If he can do it, I can do it!
“Haul away you rollin’ kings! Heave away, Haul away! Haul away you’ll hear me sing, We’re bound for South Australia!”
Andy was impressed. Kalai had jumped in without complaint, and she was very coachable. He could feel himself start to flag as they were starting to come to the last third of the net, but Kalai’s persistence, even though she was sweatier and more haggard than he was, kept him going.
The pile of salmon was almost as deep as their calves, and the deck was getting slick with fish slime. For that matter, so was Andy. In a momentary lull in the fish coming over the horns, Andy caught a glimpse of himself shimmering with all the scales that had flown off the fish as they scraped against the net to hit the deck, flopping. He took a big gulp of air and Kalai groaned as she straightened up, cracking her back as she twisted and bent to relieve her aching muscles.
Andy groaned a bit and looked back towards the stern. It was getting hard to see over the amount of net they’d pulled back in, but he could see Doc and Mrs. Vaida doing their best to help throw and shove the piles of salmon into the hold. Everybody’s getting their hands dirty today. Andy smiled and heaved a happy sigh. This, this is what I want. Being out on the water and doing good, hard work.
“SHIT, JELLYFISH!” Kalai shouted as she twisted away to hide her face behind her rain slicker hood. Andy blinked just in time as a wet squelching sound sent a spray of disintegrating jellyfish exploding all over the bow as the net bunched up and got squeezed together.
Andy felt it splatter all over his arms, neck, and face, before he felt it start to slide down his shirt to his chest. Almost immediately, he started to feel the burn. His arms, neck, and chest he could stand, but the blossoming pain on his lips, eyelids, cheeks, and most horribly the inside of his nose overwhelmed all his conditioned pain tolerance.
“FUCK!” Andy screamed. “FUCKING FUCKER! RIGHT IN MY FUCKING FACE! GOD FUCKING DAMNIT! FUCK!” Andy only barely avoided bringing his hands to his face. It was a hard fought thing to deny his instinct to try and scrape it off, but he felt his boots loose purchase and his feet slide out from under him. He hit the pile of fish that surrounded him hard. He was aware of Kalai yelling for her father and Mrs. Vaida, while Jackie’s braying laugh carried over everything else.
Andy felt Kalai trying to grab him, but her gloves were too slick to get a grip and all she did was spread the stingers more evenly over his arms. Andy kept his eyes squeezed shut as he heard Jackie start to direct the confused and panicking aliens.
“Hold your breath, cuz, vinegar incoming!”
Andy felt the bitter stinging splash as Jackie poured a steady stream of vinegar out from what he assumed was the giant jug he kept for these occasions underneath the little kitchenette in the cabin. Though nothing about the intensity of the burn changed, in the back of his mind, Andy knew that it was killing the stinging cells.
“Alright, Kally, take that bucket and fill it with seawater from over the side, then dump it on him.”
Andy sputtered a bit and spit as he scrabbled onto his knees. He steadied himself with one hand on the rail beside him and the other which found the corkline. He kept his eyes shut and growled as the burning spread from his hairline down to his navel. A sudden bracing splash of cold water nearly bowled him back over. Without warning, Andy hadn't had time to get a breath and he sputtered and yowled as the water soaked down under his rain gear.
Andy shook his head like a dog, whipping his braid back and forth before daring to open his eyes. “Son of a BITCH!” Andy growled as he got a look at Kalai holding an empty bucket, while Jackie was shoo’ing Mrs. Vaida and Dr. He’osforos away to give him some room.
“Jesus, quit your bawlin,’ you big baby, you’re acting like you’ve never been stung before!” Jackie called back to him as Andy ripped the gloves off his hands and plunged them over the side to clean off the stingers.
“It’s in my fucking nose you horse’s ass!” Andy shouted back as he splashed his face. A few strings of purple stingers fell into the water and Andy reared back aboard. “Ugh, get another bucket of seawater! I can still feel this shit!”
“Andrei, as a medical professional, I advise you to cease work and-”
Andy looked over as Dr. He’osforos spoke but waved him off mid sentence. “I appreciate it Doc, but I’ve had it far worse than this. There’s a brown and yellow bottle in one of the drawers under the bench that says ‘Motrin’. Get me the bottle or enough to tranq a cow, and I’ll go back to work just fine.”
Kalai let loose a piercing scream and Andy looked over just in time to see her rocketed herself backwards, dropping the bucket over the side. The Doctor caught his daughter before she fell into the hold, but he too had a look of fear plastered on his face. Andy and Jackie moved to the side to see what had scared her so badly, and the two of them couldn’t help but laugh out loud.
Grammie Slick and two of her daughters were there, sticking their heads out of the water with their mouths open, while Butterball was playing with the bucket.
Jackie laughed and stuck her hand out, rubbing the Orca matriarch on the snout. “Raggedy Andy’s fine, Grammie Slick! He’s just milking it for sympathy from these gullible hwun’eetums!”
What in the Balance of Nature is going on here?” Mrs. Vaida’s shocked voice caused Andy and Jackie to look at her as she stared dumbfounded at the Orcas that were gathering alongside the boat.
“Oh they’re just saying ‘hi.’” Andy shrugged with a smile, despite the burning.
“More like ‘What the hell, cousins, you still got fish to pick. Quit loafin’ around and get another set in!’”
“Jackie, MotrinNOW!” Andy growled at her. Jackie blew a raspberry at him before diving into the cabin.
“They’re pretty friendly, if you’d like to be introduced,” Andy held out a hand and motioned for Kalai and her father to step forward. Andy dipped his hand in again to make sure it was clear of any stinging cells, before he gently guided the hesitant Kalai to stick her ungloved hand out toward Grammie Slick.
One of the daughters blew a spout before sliding back under water, but Grammie gave a few clicks before briefly touching Kalai’s outstretched hand. “Kalai, this is Grammie Slick, Matriarch of J-Pod. Grammie, this is Kalai… a purple hwun’eetum.” Andy laughed a bit at the look of incredulity on Kalai’s face and the concern on her father’s.
There was a series of shutter clicks from behind Andy, and he turned to see Sakalbi snapping pictures as fast as she could. Kalai was clearly torn between fear and wonder as she held perfectly still and silent for Grammie, who was letting her touch her before she slid back under the water herself. Andy laughed as several clicks and whistles from the pod reverberated through the hull of the boat and he leaned back in.
“Alright, break’s over,” Andy called as he caught the flying bottle of pills Jackie threw at him. He popped two and swallowed them dry before washing the gloves off and putting them on. The extra rinse would have to wait, and he’d have to tough it out until they got back to shore. His boots squelched as he picked his way through the fish on the deck to get back to his station and nodded for Jackie to restart the drum.
It was another twenty minutes before the last of the net was pulled aboard and they were able to clear away all the fish into the hold. Andy stuck his head in and smiled. In a single set, they’d filled three quarters of it, and they had more than enough fish for the gathering and to feed another ten to fifteen families besides. The spouts and the clicks of J-Pod hanging around the boat, however, told Andy that they wanted their reef back and were still hungry.
Andy ordered them to prep the net for another set and helmed his boat again, only to bomb out in a straight line and let J-Pod take care of the fishing from that point on. Once they’d finished, Andy moved the boat out of the Orcas’ way and stood outside the cabin with Jackie while the three aliens crowded the bow, watching and recording the whales going to work a second time.
“Ok, I think we might get a moment to talk,” Andy muttered to Jackie in Salishian. “New orders from the Council. There’s going to be a raid.”
Jackie sucked in a breath and looked at him, all levity gone. “Cambrians, Militia, or the Dummy Bunnies?”
“Militia and the Interior.”
Jackie whistled softly in surprise as her eyebrows shot up. “Really poking the bear, cuz… When and where?”
“Uncle Willy wants us to hit the Militia Supply Depot out by Tanner on Saturday,” Andy growled quietly as he watched Kalai pointing to Grammie Slick’s dorsal as she swam out on the picket around the net.
“You mean the one close to the Snoqualmish?”
“Yeah. Full raid, we’re to hit it and take any supplies, especially military, that we can and destroy what we can’t. The messier we can make it the better. We’ll meet up with the Resistance on the old Bessemer Logging road by Hancock Creek and they get half for taking the credit. Me and Chuck’ve been assigned to ‘lead’ you.” Andy nodded and tried to flick some of the fish scales off himself, but got nowhere.
Jackie sat down on the rail with a groan before looking back up at him with a smirk. “You mean babysit on overwatch while we do the real work.”
Andy pursed his numb lips together and considered the ramifications of folding his arms on the jellyfish burns that had started to go quiet thanks to the Motrin. “Grandma and the Council want me to ‘get my hands dirty.’” He gritted his teeth in frustration.
“What? I’m sorry, that sentence made zero sense.” Jackie shook her head like she’d just been slapped.
Andy couldn’t keep the frustration and anger out of his tone when he spoke. “Apparently there are doubts about my loyalty to the tribe and whether or not I’ve lost my way.”
Jackie huffed in amusement. “Everyone knows the Council’s fucking stupid, but this is a new level of dumb. You got us land back, you got them to allow you to break the rules to feed our people, they’re fixing the fuck ups on our waterways because of you and they think you’ve gone to the dark side?” Jackie started laughing at the nonsense of the politics.
“Last time we talked, you thought I was playing with fire and-” Andy started to throw back at her before she snorted loudly.
“Results talk, cuz. Three of our Hatcheries returned, and my whole family drawing good money in Imperial Credits? Fuck, even if you had sold out, we need more Clan Heads doing the same thing.” She smiled as she nodded towards their guests on the bow.
“They still don’t trust that I know what I’m doing,” Andy growled as he folded his arms unconsciously and immediately regretted it.
Jackie snorted. “Of course they don’t. You didn’t talk to them or get their permission first. Hell, I’m surprised your grandma didn’t chuck you out on your ear for even suggesting that you should work for the dummy bunnies.” Jackie stretched and hopped up and around Andy to grab a water bottle. “But it’s working out. There’s land being returned, money in our hands, and food about to be on our table. You’re doin’ what a Chief is supposed to do.”
Andy scoffed and started to object. “I’m no Chief-”
Jackie gave his shoulder a slap and grinned evilly as a starburst of pain and burning cut through the painkillers, shutting Andy up mid-protest. “You keep saying you aren’t, but that don’t make it true.” She resumed her seat as Andy fought the yowl of pain back so as not to give her the satisfaction. “I mean, case in point, what are you going to do with all these fish Grammie’s catching for us right now?”
Andy blinked a few times as he regained his composure and thought seriously about his answer. “We’ll pull fifteen for the gathering they got invited to… Then all the fish you can pack into the truck goes to the Exiles. The rest? I’ll call Chuck and get some folks from the Council to claim the rest and distribute it to the families that need it.”
Jackie deepened her voice and adopted a cowboy drawl. “He never eats until he sees the pots are full of meat in the lodges of the widows and orphans-”
“That’s Comanche Law, not Salish, and that’s from a John Wayne movie, you ass.” Andy huffed and Jackie giggled wickedly, flipped him off.
“Still haven’t refuted my point, cuz.” Jackie’s singsong voice caused Andy to glare spitefully at her, until she raised her hands defensively. “Alright, you’re not a Chief. So, Not Chief Tsu’titsi’uqw; you need to get your hands dirty and lead a raid. I’ll scrape up what we need and scout the target. You just meet up with us Saturday night at the Snoqualmish Casino and I’ll put a gun in your hands. Don’t worry, we’ll only get dirty enough to make the Council happy.”
“I’ll be a bit late; I’m escorting them to the Hwatcom Family Gathering on Friday.” Andy took a step back as Jackie stood up and twisted a bit to stretch out.
“No surprise there, grandpa’s an old school traditional Indian. They’re dummies, but they’re trying to do right by us, finally. Again, thanks to you, Chie-” Andy slapped the back of her head hard and growled at her, but she just started laughing, making him even madder.
“Alright, enough. Let’s get on the bow and not look like we’re sketchy Indians plotting to attack an Imperial fort.” Andy snarled, shoving her past him while she just kept laughing.
Andy stomped forward, aware of the wet sounds his boots made as he walked. Kalai turned and smiled at him as he moved to stand beside her and her father. “So how are they doing out there?”
“They just started their attack. This is fascinating! Their coordination, their ingenuity, and adaptation to human activity is astounding! I wish I had brought observation drones!” Sakalbi was glued to the binoculars and holding her omnipad up while she muttered observations into the speaker. Andy was content to watch as the pod put on a repeat performance and the net sagged again until they all came up and started swimming lazily around the net and the boat. All of them except Butterball and one of his older brothers. The two seemed to be getting into a jumping contest.
“He’s feeling a bit hyper. Must be nice to be full,” Jackie commented as the two whales took turns jumping out of the water and twisting in the air. Andy smiled and nodded and felt a hand go to his shoulder. He looked down and saw it was Kalai making eyes at him. Andy hid the grimace at the burn and gave her a wink.
“That one’s getting closer, should we be concerned?” Andy looked over at Dr. He’osforos and Kalai quickly moved her hand as they watched Butterball getting closer and closer with each jump.
Jackie hopped up and straddled the railing as Andy and Kalai shared a concerned look. Jackie hooked a hand around one of the roller horns and peered down into the water. “I don’t think so, I mean he knows we’re-”
The sudden appearance of a flying adolescent Orca only a scant few feet away from the boat right next to the lot of them cut Jackie off. Most of them only had enough time to watch the little playful bastard hang in the air for a moment before he twisted to almost shoulder punch the water as he came back down. Andy had just enough presence of mind to pull Kalai and her father down, and braced himself as the plume of water rose from where Butterball landed.
“Oh shi-” Andy heard Jackie say before water cascaded down on them and drenched them all, sending the boat rocking violently.
It took a moment for Andy to recover and he helped the two Shil back to their feet. “Quick check, is everyone alright?”
A camera shutter sounded and a dripping wet Mrs. Vaida stood, wide eyed in fear, staring out over the water.
Andy started laughing at the sight of his boss soaked to the bone, her hair and her fur a dripping mess. “That picture right there? You can title it: ‘Angry Native Woman Yells at Whale.’”
Kalai looked like she was on Krek’s doorstep. Akil’eas knelt next to her as he finished his examination and was looking over the readings on his omnipad. His daughter sat in front of the cabin on the little step, legs splayed out in front of her while she leaned against the railing on the side of the boat. Her father stood next to her as he finished a quick check of her vitals and her viral load.
“Unsurprisingly, you’re a bit elevated, but given your numbers over the last week, that’s saying that you’ve come back up to your normal levels.” Akil’eas had been worried. When they’d hauled in the net the second time, Kalai had stayed on the bow with the boy, Andy, while Akil’eas’d stood over the human woman’s shoulder and studied the controls.
Akil’ieas had also pitched in and helped fill the hold, but when he and Sakalbi could no longer stuff them in, they’d given up and stood out of the way. His old friend and colleague had spent the rest of the time recording, either the large predators that continued to circle and play around the boat, or the seemingly inefficient fishing practice of Andy and his people. No wonder he was so big, and his brother had been that strong. It beggared belief that their people worked at that backbreaking pace for so long, but there Andy stood, proud and tall at the end of it, while he and Sakalbi struggled to stay standing.
Akil’eas had to focus on keeping his hands from shaking and retrieved another water bottle for his exhausted daughter. Andy had them moving at a slow pace back towards a different harbor from the one they’d left that morning. They’d stopped briefly at the pier they’d started from to allow Jackie to disembark. The two humans packed all the fish that couldn’t fit in the hold up to Jackie’s truck and filled the bed of it without any help. She drove off with close to a hundred fish.
Now with the deck cleared, Andy told them they were on their way to the harbor most of his Band used. The trip had been slower going than the morning had been, but only because they were riding much lower in the water than they had been.
“King Triton’s farewell,” Kalai muttered looking up. Akil’eas followed his daughter’s gaze up to see a flock of white and gray seabirds calling out loudly as they kept pace with the boat as it headed towards the docks.
“It means work’s almost over. It’s a great sound, isn’t it?” Andy called out from the cabin where he sat at the helm.
Kalai shifted herself with great effort to look around the door to the cabin. “It sounds amazing.”
The smile Andy gave Kalai caused Akil’eas to have a pang of fatherly protectiveness, and only fatigue kept the scowl off his face. “Just wait, we’ll clean a few once we’ve off-loaded to the families. Fresh salmon tonight for everyone, and I’m cooking! Doc, we’d love to have you, too.”
“I’d love to but-”
Kalai grabbed his arm and stopped him. “Trust me, Papa, you don’t want to miss it.”
Akil’eas chewed his tongue for a moment, looking from Andy to Kalai. Sakalbi caught his eye and nodded emphatically. “Alright, if you’ll allow me to help. You must be exhausted.”
Andy beamed at Akil’eas, “You won’t hear me turn down free help.”
“Vaascon fellas don’t have no frills, Haul away, haul away! They’re plain and skinny as a lodthfish gill, And we’re bound away for Vaasconia!”
Kalai sat back and started singing between sips of water. Akil’eas sat down next to her and joined in the chorus for a Vaascon sailing song. It was strange to think that these humans also sang to their sea gods to placate them and coordinate the work. What else could you expect from a sailorman? Some things call to the soul across time and evidently even the gulf space and peoples.
“So heave him up my Turry Turry girls, Haul away, haul away! Heave him up and let the sails unfurl! And we’re bound away for Vaasconia!”
Andy’s voice joining in on the chorus startled Akil’eas and Kalai and they both turned to look back at him.
He gave them another wide grin, “I started learning some of the sail songs after Kalai told me about sailing on Shil.”
“Akil’eas, a word?” Sakalbi motioned with her head towards the bow and offered him a hand up. He followed her to the bow, leaving the two children singing together.
The harbor mouth was coming up fast, and between the noise of the engine and the net drum keeping them out of sight, there was some privacy. “I’ve heard some rumors about your feelings toward humans…” Sakalbi leaned against the railing, giving him the look that every teacher and professor had when questioning a belligerent student. When Akil’eas didn’t answer her, save to throw her back his own look, she continued. “Kalai is quite taken with Andy. It’s been quite a refreshing thing to see her come out of her shell.”
“It’s a vacation romance, nothing more.” Akil’eas felt his stomach clench and couldn’t stop himself from looking back.
“I don’t think so, Akil’eas. This is the first time I’ve seen her so on thorns and thistles around anyone, much less a male. She’s been very keen around him.” The smile she gave him was a bit galling, but he had to admit, he didn’t really know Kalai as well as Sakalbi and her spouses.
“He is… I’m sure he is a very nice young man, but as a fit consort for a soon to be Duchess? No, and I’ve yet to meet a human that is.” The thought of a human becoming the next Duke He’osforos was absurd. Sure there had been the occasional non-Shil Kho-liebhaberin or even the one Duke Aurar’ian He’osforos who was a Triki, but a human? “They’re far too individualistic and self centered to rise to the responsibilities of the Peerage.”
“That’s not exactly as large a sample size as you think it is, Leas. If you had Andy in your class, or on your crew, disregarding the fact that he’s human, what would your read on him be?”
Akil’eas locked his jaw and pursed his lips, defiantly. “I don’t know.”
“Come on, Leas, you’re better than me at reading people, and I’m damn good at it.” He hated how Sakalbi’s eyes flashed and her right ear would twitch when she thought she had the upper hand in an argument. He huffed a sigh and decided to play her little game, just to humor her enough so that she’d drop the subject.
“Dependable, fastidious and competent, judging by the state of his equipment and his boat. Self sacrificing, diligent, hard working, given what I’ve observed today. He’s got a temper, but it takes a bit to get there, and he’s carrying some pretty heavy emotional scars.” He’d not seen very much of Andy, but the old Sailing Master and Professor in him started to come out and assess the boy just as he would any of his students or junior sailors.
“That’s my read, too. Doesn’t sound so individualistic and self-centered to me. Blighted Nature, Leas, from what I’ve learned about him and his people, he broke with several of their traditions and customs to help us. He’s stuck his neck out far further for us than we would have for him and his people, for no other reason than to try and save his homeland. Were he an Erbian on Myr or even back home in Vaasconia, there’d be Groom-War over his hand.”
Akil’eas was a bit piqued about her statement, “What about your daughter? Kalai made no secret about little Sitry mooning after him, and her disapproval of their courtship.”
“She thinks she’s in love, and it very well might be that she is, but Kalai’s disapproval should tell you what it tells me, given your own rather astute assessment of the man.”
“HEY DOC! TAKE THE WHEEL, I GOTTA DRUM US IN!” Andy’s voice cut their conversation short as Akil’eas turned to look back around the drum. Andy waved him back as he slowed their approach to come in. “Take us to Dock 5, straight back and to port.”
“Straight back and to larboard, aye!” Akil’eas rattled off as he traded places with Andy at the helm.
Kalai heaved herself up to stand as Andy grabbed a large leather circle and ran forward to jump up on the bow. As Akil’eas piloted the boat into the harbor and made the turn, he saw a large crowd of humans gathered on the pier and the shore. As soon as they were in sight, he watched as Andy, standing tall, began to drum a beat and vocalize, projecting his voice over the water to those on shore. Akil’eas sputtered a bit in surprise as he guided the boat slowly towards the open mooring.
“That’s their call. His family’s song lets the people on shore know who he is and that he’s friendly.” Kalai looked back at Akil’eas before moving inside the cabin to stand next to her father. “All the families know it, but only he is allowed to sing it. It’s their version of a family crest and coat of arms. Elder Hwatcom taught us about those. There’ll be a reply in a second granting us permission to come ashore.”
There was indeed a response of drumming and singing from the assembly of humans as many started to crowd forward carrying what appeared to be coolers. Andy reappeared and took the controls back and reversed to kill their forward momentum as Sakalbi threw out their mooring lines to the waiting humans. Andy killed the engine and moved quickly out of the cabin to speak in a language that Akil’eas did not recognize. There seemed to be a bit of confusion from those gathered on the dock, but Andy opened the hatch to show the hold full of fish.
“Don’t thank me, thank them. Sockeye and Kings to all comers, courtesy of the Vaidas and the Vaida Warren!” Andy shouted happily in Vatikre as he pulled two giant fish out by their gills and handed them off to the applauding humans.
Sakalbi managed to shoot Akil’eas a smug look before she plunged her hands into the mass of fish and began helping Andy hand them out to the people.

2023.06.02 09:14 giligarden How to Start Vegetable Gardening

Welcome, young gardeners, to the world of organic vegetable gardening! Get ready to dig your hands in the dirt, sprinkle some magic seeds, and watch nature's comedy show unfold. It's time to unleash your inner plant whisperer and embark on a hilarious adventure with carrots, tomatoes, and a bunch of veggie buddies. So grab your watering can and put on your gardening cape because we're about to grow some veggies that will make Mother Nature herself chuckle. Let's dig in!
Here are 20 steps simplified and written in a way that children can understand
Find a sunny spot: Just like you need sunlight to grow, vegetables also need at least 6-8 hours of sunshine every day. Prepare the soil: Think of the soil as a cozy home for plants. Remove any rocks or weeds and add compost, which acts like a nutritious meal for the plants. Choose your favorite veggies: Imagine your garden as a buffet of delicious vegetables. Pick your favorites and make a list. Start planting: If you have tiny seeds, like magic beans, you can sow them directly in the soil. If you have small plants, gently transplant them into the garden. Give them a drink: Just like people, plants need water to grow big and strong. Water them gently, making sure the soil is damp but not soaked. Feed them with compost: Plants love to eat, too! Give them some special food called compost. It's like a tasty salad for them. Keep them cozy: Cover the soil with a soft blanket of straw or wood chips to keep it warm and protect it from weeds. Make friends with other plants: Some plants get along really well together, like peas and carrots. Plant them close to each other, and they'll help each other grow strong. Say no to pests: Some little bugs can be naughty and eat your plants. Use natural ways to keep them away, like inviting helpful ladybugs to your garden. Pull out the weeds: Weeds are like uninvited guests at your vegetable party. Remove them by pulling them out from their roots. Share the love: Bees and butterflies love flowers. Plant colorful flowers in your garden to attract these beautiful friends who will help pollinate your veggies. Harvest time: Once your vegetables are fully grown, it's time to pick them. Just like picking apples from a tree, gently pluck your veggies from their plants. Explore organic fertilizers: There are special natural fertilizers that make plants super happy. Try things like compost, worm poop (yes, really!), or seaweed juice. Rotate your crops: Imagine playing musical chairs but with plants. Move them around each year, so they don't get bored and stay healthy. Watch out for plant doctors: Sometimes plants get sick, just like we do. Keep an eye out for any problems and use natural remedies to make them feel better. Learn from nature: Nature is a great teacher. Observe how plants grow in the wild and try to mimic their ways in your garden. Celebrate with a garden feast: After all your hard work, it's time to enjoy a delicious meal made from your own garden. Taste the freshness and savor the flavors! Stay curious and keep learning: Gardening is a never-ending adventure. Keep asking questions, reading books, and discovering new things about plants and nature. Share your harvest: Share your bountiful harvest with friends and family. It's like sharing your own treasure with others. Grow with love: Remember, plants can feel your care and love. Treat them gently and watch them grow into healthy, happy vegetables. Now go out there, little green thumbs, and create your own magical organic garden! Have fun and enjoy the wonders of nature.

2023.06.01 17:46 TryingToDoGreatStuff Percy Jackson and the Olympians Disney+ (2024) [Alternate Casting]

Note: I got the inspiration and idea to make this post from this other post => I don't know if there are any Percy Jackson & the Olympians fans on this subreddit, but I'm really excited for the upcoming Percy Jackson and the Olympians series that's coming to Disney+ and that will be faithful adapting the "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief" book/novel for its first season. Now..., I'm pretty much fine with the cast we already have that's going to be in the first season of the series/show, but I would be remiss if I didn't ever give out what would've been my ideal dream cast for the live-action adaptation of the series/show. Since I'm pretty much fine with the cast we currently have right now, there will be a lot of actors and actresses here that I will not even bother to give alternative casting choices for and so to help compensate for that, I'll be giving some possible casting choices for characters that will presumably show up and appear in season 2 of the series/show when they eventually adapt book 2, "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Sea of Monsters".

🍆 Chappy's Tips for Growing Organic Eggplants: Get Ready for Egg-citement! 🍆
Hey there, fellow green thumbs! It's Chappy the Gardener, here to share my egg-straordinary tips for growing organic eggplants. These purple beauties are the superheroes of the veggie world, and with a little love and organic magic, you'll be egg-static with your bountiful harvest. So, let's dive in and embark on this egg-cellent adventure together!
The Power of Organic Fertilizers: Feed your eggplants with nutrient-rich organic fertilizers like compost, well-rotted manure, and worm castings. They'll get a natural boost that'll make them grow like superheroes!
Egg-stra Calcium Boost: Crushed eggshells are egg-cellent for providing calcium to your eggplants. Save those shells, dry them out, and grind them into a fine powder. Sprinkle it around the base of your plants for strong stems and healthy fruits.
Seaweed Serenade: Treat your eggplants to a seaweed foliar spray. Seaweed extracts are like an invigorating ocean vacation for your plants, boosting their growth and overall health. Just make sure they don't develop a craving for sushi!
Fishy Business: Try fish emulsion fertilizer, which provides a healthy dose of nitrogen and other essential nutrients. Your eggplants will swim through their growth stages with enthusiasm!
Mighty Mulching: Spread a thick layer of organic mulch around your eggplant plants. It will keep the soil moist, suppress weeds, and create a cozy environment for your plants to thrive. It's like tucking them in with a comfy blanket!
Composting Capers: Create your own superhero fertilizer by composting kitchen scraps, yard waste, and eggplant leaves. The compost will nourish your plants and reduce waste. It's like turning kitchen scraps into gardening gold!
Tea Time: Treat your eggplants to some homemade organic compost tea. Steep compost in water, strain it, and use it to water your plants. They'll sip on this nutrient-rich tea and grow with gusto!
Wormy Wonders: Set up a worm bin and let those slimy garden heroes produce worm castings for your eggplants. These black gold nuggets are packed with nutrients and will make your plants jump for joy!
Chicken-chasing Adventure: If you have chickens, let them help you prepare your eggplant beds. Allow them to scratch and peck around, eating pests and leaving behind their valuable manure. Just make sure they don't develop a taste for eggplants themselves!
Optimistic Outlook: Finally, always approach your eggplant gardening journey with a positive and playful attitude. Talk to your plants, tell them egg-ceptional jokes, and encourage them to grow big and strong. After all, happy plants make for egg-ceptional harvests!
There you have it, my fellow gardening enthusiasts – Chappy's egg-citing tips for growing organic eggplants. Embrace the joy, have fun in the garden, and remember to share your egg-ventures with others. Now go forth, my green-thumbed friends, and let your eggplants reach for the sky with a twinkle in your eye and a big smile on your face! Happy eggplant gardening! 🍆✨

2023.05.29 14:36 florastise Episode Discussion – S1E13 – You're So Vain, You Probably Think This Zit is About You

It's time for another episode discussion! Provide your thoughts on this episode in the comments, and come back tomorrow to discuss the next episode: New Kid in School!
Season 1 Episode 13: You're So Vain, You Probably Think This Zit is About You
Aired: August 12, 2006
Description: Hannah Montana models her "perfect skin" for a zit cream ad. When Lilly loses her contacts and has to wear her "dorky" glasses, Miley tells her that looks don't matter. When they get to see the billboard ad, a zit has been painted on Hannah's forehead by the photographer. Miley pretends it doesn't bother her so she can convince Lilly to participate in the half-pipe finals and beat Heather who has beaten Lilly every year, but it really does bother Miley so she pays Jackson to return with her to paint over the zit. Hannah unveils her billboard to the public and Lilly sees that she had painted over the zit and is upset by her hypocrisy, so Hannah washes it off and tells everyone that looks don't matter. In the subplot, Jackson has to be Rico's assistant in a fake magic show, only to have to put a dress on and have Rico crack an egg on his head. He does this because he isn't sure Rico's dad is going to give him a raise. Then Jackson finds out he was going to get the raise anyway and decides to get revenge by dumping seaweed on Rico's head. Then the girl he was dating sees and dumps him.

[US to Anywhere][Sell/Swap][Perfume] Mostly FS and 2mL decants.
At my job, I throw out thousands of little bubble wrap bags (~3"x4", no sticky strip) and sheets of ultra-thin packing foam (this is what I usually use, if you've ever received one of my destash packages) every week. This stuff is used to ship stainless steel components and is all perfectly clean. If anyone here would like some, I would be more than happy to send you as much as I can shove into a 9x12 envelope for $5 (to cover shipping and PayPal fees) or for no additional cost if you purchase something off my destash.
Mostly for swaps at this point. There's a small chance I'd buy DCed, partial, or just reaaaal cheap items. I will be very picky and stingy when it comes to $ purchases. However, I am happy to swap generously in your favor.
If something is marked "FS", I'd probably accept partials/decants with 2mL+. If something is marked "sample", I'd probably take a FS as part of a swap.
Purchase/swap minimum is ~3mLs, either in a bottle or several samples. Shipping any less is not worth the postage. I am happy to sell smaller amounts, just not buy/swap them.

  • Try me: I may be picky for non-ISO swaps, but here are the broad categories I'm most likely to swap for right now (ISOs aside): Florimands, fruity/gourmand aquatics (sweet), beachy/sunscreen/tropical scents, mainstreamy sweet/summery smells, evergreen-gourmand blends. 'Try me' only applies to 2mL+, I am not interested in any tiny samples/slinks unless noted above.
FOR SALE Most FS, a few samples/decants.
I'm trying to sell these but if they don't sell I might be wiling to decant some (2mL only), so if you're interested, please ask.
MAKE AN OFFER: Has something been here for a while? PLEASE feel free to make an offer for anything that's been sitting in my destash for a while. I want to get this stuff out of my house and into the hands of someone who will use it. (does NOT apply to made-to-order decants, ready-to-ship destash items only).

I have more perfume than I will use up in a lifetime, so I'm opening up my FS collection to decants, at least the things I have enough of or use infrequently enough. Due to the time-consuming, tedious nature of decanting, I will be offering 1x 2mL decant per (available) scent. These are intended to function more like a mini FS in a collection rather than a sample/tester.
This is not a business, all bottles here were purchased for personal use. I do not, and never will, have "leftovers", nor do keep a stash of unlisted inventory.
I put everything available in BOLD. Things I will not decant are either in heavy rotation, from dead houses, DCed, already low, or already had a decant removed. I am 100% open to making decants as part of a swap.
Here's a quick list, see spreadsheet for notes and prices:
  • Alkemia: Bohemiens en Voyage, Silken Tent, Fume, Ecstasies of Light, Foxfire
  • Alchemia Muse: Beguile, Pumpkin Chai
  • Arcana Craves: Strawberries Crave Black Sand, Strawberries Crave Nyx, Strawberries Crave Sea Turtles, Vanilla Craves the Honor of Aphrodite, Pumpkins Crave Quietude, Vanilla Craves Aurora (open to swapping FS or selling for $18), Peaches Crave Rainbow Starfish, Cardamom, Strawberry #1, Yellow Cake, Pineapple, Moss, Brown Bread, Fresh Ginger, Fir Balsam, Pink Moonbeams, Strawberries Crave Lucy, Blueberries Crave Garden Parties, Vanilla Craves Sparkly Dresses, Vanilla Craves Grind Shows
  • Arcana Wildcraft: White Fire, Bonfires at Dusk, Devilish, Black Sand, Phoebus, Witches Watch Sci-Fi Movies, Nectar, Bellatrix, Lady Lamb
  • Cocoa Pink: Genevieve, Witches Butter
  • Deep Midnight: Boudica, Bumble
  • Fantome: Vasilisa
  • Firebird: Nectar, Saltwater, Amanita
  • Fyrinnae: Aerobaking, Serval

2023.05.23 09:39 youbetterworkb You Are A Sleeping Wizard in a Universe Without Stars

There is a universe without stars or constellations, it's a collection of pocket dimensions that are 6-mile hexes. Each hex is created and populated by a wizard. A wizard can design the 6 miles in all directions up to the technology level and any flora or fauna they knew in their life before becoming a wizard (including structures and humans in them).
An angelic figure lifts you out of bed one night and locks you in the highest room of your tower where you will always be sleeping. Now you are a wizard. You can see into other universes and dimensions by casting your senses away from your sleeping body (even inhabiting but not controlling other bodies) and you can summon willing creatures (such as friends and relatives) into your world. At the foot of your bed is a basin that contains 6 tokens that you can spend below – each choice costs one – you don’t need to buy them in any order:
(1) Summoned Creatures: Every wizard tower needs a summoning circle.
(2) The Garden: Wizards should have a garden or conservatory attached to or very nearby their tower.
(3) The Water Feature: Every wizard must have a water feature in or nearby their tower. The origin of this entire universe is from this darkest water. For some, it’s just a water feature. Others use their tokens as below.
(4) The Ballroom: The Water Feature is unpopular, delving into the minds of the Elder Gods in an endless war against other wizards and your own sanity, just doesn't appeal to everyone these days. Luckily, every wizard's tower can have a ballroom allowing more gentile exploration of the multiverse.

(5) The Library: Every wizard tower must have a library. Every library has a fireplace that will not burn books, but is magically cozy.

(6) The Gargoyles: A wizard that isn’t sleeping loses control over any vassals or controlled creatures and can't cast their senses or use any magic until they fall back to sleep. It's also very disorienting. Somewhere on their lands, wizards usually build a sculpting workshop. Here, wizards create completely loyal and obedient gargoyles to protect themselves while they sleep. You can communicate telepathically with your gargoyles, wherever they might be.

2023.05.22 23:55 fixinmyface [ROUTINE HELP] Severely Clog-Prone Skin, Oily, Congested / Closed Comedones, Redness
I’m so embarrassed to post this, but I’m desperate. Fixing my skin feels hopeless at this point. I’ve been a part of this thread for a year or so, but didn’t want to use my main account because I hate sharing these photos.
I’m 34, and have had challenges with my skin since I was a pre-teen. Unfortunately due to health/hormone issues, I still have SUPER oily, sensitive, clog-prone skin. My skin has also been dark and discoloured like this since my mid 20s. :(
The past number of years I’ve been struggling with closed comedones, and have realized that almost everything rated even slightly comedogenic gives me CCs and breakouts.
Cosrx AHA Whitehead Power liquid and stridex helped clear out a lot my ccs, I had them really bad before. They are 80% gone, but I’ve had to cut out almost everything. Can’t seem to get rid of the rest. I eventually found the Cosrx AHA stopped working, and I think the butylene glycol in it was still slightly clogging me.
Prescription tret helped lighten some scars, but did little more than dry out my skin. Certainly no less ccs, possibly caused more. I used it for more than six months.
I’ve cut my routine to bare bones now, because I don’t want more ccs that I can’t get rid of, and my skin can’t handle much for actives without a good moisturizer.
I’m avoiding silicones, oils, fatty alcohols, algae/seaweed ingredients, and pretty much everything without a zero rating. I know it’s just a number, but it seems like if it could, for me, it does! I’ve tried tons of oils, including jojoba and squalane, but they still clog me and cause breaksouts. Same with OCM.
My current routine: AM: Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Cleanser Beauty by Earth Aloe Vera Gel Sebamed Clear Face Gel
PM: Makeup removing with Jane Iredale magic mitt and sometimes Garner micellar water Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Cleanser TO Latic Acid Serum (new, first active in several weeks) Beauty by Earth Aloe Vera Gel Sebamed Clear Face Gel
Makeup days I wear Inika Loose Bare Minerals
I don’t have any sunscreen because they don’t seem to be any without pore clogging ingredients. The mineral makeup has a little bit, and if I’m not wearing it I try to use hats. Not ideal, I know.:(
I also have these that I’m spot testing occasionally, which seem okay so far: De La Cruz Sulfur Ointment Acne Beplain Cica Ampoule II
I’ve been to two different dermatologists, but it’s Canada, so neither were helpful. The first one didn’t believe in anything, but Accutane, which would land me in the hospital (with my health conditions). The second just gave me the general info print out for acne and sent me home.
Skincare goals: remove/prevent ccs, improve pigmentation and skin discoloration/redness reduce large pores and SF - improve skin texture
Please help! Any advice or suggestions is appreciated.

2023.05.22 20:01 Fiveby21 Now that Magic Seaweed is no more (RIP), where can I see seasonal surf averages?

I'm trying to compile a list of destinations I'd like to visit, with the average surf conditions noted by month. Magicseaweed used to have this functionality, but their new owner (surfline) does not... where can I find this information now?
