2023.06.01 22:04 tiredturtledove Question about doing designs

I’m still learning, and some of the language is a little tricky for me to decipher sometimes. Has anyone used plain nail polish (regular stuff you can get at Walgreens) to do designs? I saw nail “markers” online, but they looked kind of cheap in pictures.
I have an art background and when I see acrylic, I just think of paint. I know it means something different for nails. However, do some people use acrylic paint under top coats for designs too?
I was thinking after doing my dipping and activator, I would apply one layer of topcoat, add designs with regular polish, then finish with another topcoat.
I see a lot of people do designs with gel polishes, but I don’t want to have to buy a uv lamp and a bunch of gels just to experiment, unless it’s absolutely necessary.
Any constructive feedback is super appreciated! I’ve been watching videos and reading articles as well.
Thanks fellow nail dippers!

2023.06.01 21:56 PitifulMessy Pattern suggestions for Scheepjes Whirl? Advanced crocheter/novice knitter.

Hi everyone,
I bought a couple of cakes of Scheepjes Whirl, one in Brambleberry (blue/purple gradient) and one in Mint Black Velvet (black-white-green gradient).
It’s fingering weight acrylic/cotton mix. 1000m.
I’m looking to improve my knitting, I know the basics but I want a project that will keep me engaged, basic stockinette/garter can get a bit boring for me. I’m an advanced crocheter as well so any crochet patterns also welcome!
I was thinking of some kind of shawl/wrap in either, statement accessory type thing. When I looked on Ravelry that was most of the featured patterns for this yarn. Just wondering if anyone had any suggestions or experiences with this yarn too.
Thanks in advance :)

first set in five years 🤎
i first had acrylics applied in ‘18, n bc my nails suffered for a long time after, i was terrified to get them done again. today, my sister went to have hers done, n somehow, i ended up getting mine done too. initially, i was worried that the brown wouldn’t suit me, but i am v, v glad that i chose them; they look much prettier than i was expecting—may have to get my nails done more often ♡

2023.06.01 21:12 gredman9 Teaser List Updates: Lord of the Rings (06/01/23)

Let's give it up for Day 3!
Today I would like to open up a question. We have seen a lot of legendary matters cards revealed but I'm not sure how to best represent that with the cards. Is what I have currently good or would you suggest I add something else? Your feedback is appreciated.
Additionally, there are a few cards listed that I'm not sure are actually in the main set, though there aren't any indications that they are not. I will currently be leaving these for now, however.
Enough housekeeping; let's get to today's clue reveals!
Link to the clues below:

2023.06.01 20:55 Slytherin2urheart Subtle Demisexual Nail Designs?

TLDR: Looking for opinions on if any of these (link below) thumb designs would be a good option for a subtle Demi look? I don’t want to step on any other flag’s toes, but I also don’t want just the actual Demi flag on my thumbs. Also, I haven’t announced my Demi-ness to anyone, in particular, 🫣—I’m open to my thumbs opening conversation without them necessarily being immediately recognized (as the flag likely would be).
Hello, this might be a bit of an odd post, but I was just hoping for some opinions. Last year-ish, I did a lot of deep diving trying to figure out where I fit spectrum-wise, and while there are some aspects of being Demi that don’t align perfectly, I’m happy enough to lump myself in here (since it is spectrum and nothing has to be exact). Because of this, though, I haven’t really felt a need to shout it from the rooftops; knowing I’m Demisexual feels more like it's for personal clarity rather than needed for others to know (especially as I haven’t been bothering with the dating pool this year). 🤷🏻‍♀️
Reason for posting: I’m getting a fill on my acrylics at the end of the week and have been planning what I’ve been in my head calling “subtle pride” (for my next nail design), i.e., rainbow 🌈 as like an accent rather than the whole design/all the nails. 🤷🏻‍♀️ * Pic 2: I’ve planned to do the middle & ring fingers in white with like rainbow leopard print and the pointer & pinky in solid silver. * Pic 1: And then do like a demi-centric thumb. I really don’t want to do the Demi flag on my thumb (nothing wrong with it; I’ve just not shared my Demi-ness with anyone exactly and don’t really want to be so blatant about it🫣). * (The purple here is just a placeholder—not a huge fan of that shade, tbh…) * My nail shape is almond right now if anyone cares for that detail 🙃 * Link for nail pics: https://www.canva.com/design/DAFkmhL9Ux8/R1qxBw04nbEHRz1H2x7VSA/view?utm_content=DAFkmhL9Ux8&utm_campaign=designshare&utm_medium=link&utm_source=publishsharelink
Question: I drew out some ideas on Canva (so bear with the lines & color shades; my nail tech is better at nail art than I am, lol) for a different take on the thumb that is similar to the Demi flag without actually being the flag. I just wanted to know your opinions on whether any of these are reasonable or if you have a preference? Or alt idea? I’m not fluent in all the possible LGBTQIA+ flags exactly either, so I don’t want to accidentally step on any toes of a different flag/sexuality, either. (The longer I stare at the designs, the more unsure I’ve become and hence this post.) If I can’t figure a solution out, pic 4 is my backup plan, or maybe even just solid black.🧐🤷🏻‍♀️
Side Note (can be skipped): Everyone I’m close with knows I don’t like purple. (So trying to represent Demi even subtly on my thumbs IS going to draw some attention.) I have a triggering (for me) memory from childhood that I have always attached to a particular shade of purple. So on principle, I typically avoid most purples like the plague. When I discovered that Demi was a good fit for me, I was slightly devastated that there was purple in the flag. I used to collectively shun the entirety of the color purple 😅 but over the years have narrowed it down to which purples immediately bring me back to that memory/feeling and which purples I’ve been able to take back as my own again. Typically purples in the purple-blue family are not for me (royal purple, violet, purple amethyst,) while purple-reds are ok (maroon, raspberry, imperial purple) while traditional purple remains in a grey area (where I dislike it on principle but also don’t outright hate it like I used to). I’ve been telling myself that Demisexual-purple falls more in the purple-reds category and have slowly adjusted. 🫣
So subtle Demisexual Thumbnail designs—thoughts?
P.s. I have no idea if this post even needs a flair or not 🫣🤷🏻‍♀️

2023.06.01 20:43 jaysfordays9 [Review] $100 TOPY frm Litle Liu Duck VS $77 LJR frm GTR Union LA Jordan 1 Storm Blue

[Review] $100 TOPY frm Litle Liu Duck VS $77 LJR frm GTR Union LA Jordan 1 Storm Blue
All in all I picked up topy because they looked promising. I already had both LJR Unions, but managed to snag a pair of UABat B Grades. I’m going to end up keeping both Storm Blues until I can snag a pair from UABat. I like the materials and Swoosh more on TOPY, wHile LJR nailed the overall Shape of the shoe along with the stitching. I think both are good Choice and have their flaws Like LJR’s pink tongue flaw, subpar materials and swoosh material. Topy’s flaws include Slight pink tongue, questionable toebox height and stitching isn’t as great as LJR or UABat. LJR does have a better box and tag placement. All in all it depends on the flaws you can live with.I would say go with LJR in terms of bang for your buck while the quality snobs may want topy for the materials. If you have the cash and your size is available just go with UABAT, it’s the all round best.

2023.06.01 20:39 CornerCornea YA Romantic Fantasy Horror: Moon Goddess

Looking for critique and input. Trying to meld my favorite genres together for the first time. Thanks for any help!

There were marks that ran from her ankles to her elbows. They kept her face fair for the parades. She was starved, this much I could tell from the way her clothes hung from her arms.
There was no determinate feature but I knew she was royalty by how she endured the omega lycans who brought her here. Ravenous, wild creatures whose manes were unkempt and their names forgotten in the sand, having been unable to return to their human forms long ago.
Still, they knew she didn't belong in Ember Canyon. Bringing her to the castle instead. A sign of their humanity that I have not seen in more than 500 years. They could have eaten her. But instead they chose to bring this tribute to their king. How could I not show them my teeth in return?
And as my eyes wandered to wonder, I found myself questioning, after nearly 10,000 years since the Akasia wars, what of this peace will humans do with it?
"Lord Ignictus, it seems the child is from the neighboring kingdom of men." Nail my advisor for over two mankinds, was ever cautious. A necromancer who could taste the shift in the air with his forkeded tongue. Calculative as ever as he gazed upon the tiny creature before us.
Nearly snarling as he withdrew at the sight of the young woman extending out her arm to one of the heathenous beasts and it purred beneath her fingers.
It was then that I realized, that these beasts that had been circling her, snarling, baring their teeth in my hall until my guests were parted. Had not come here for me.
They were here for her.
"Approach," Nail declared.
One of the wolves snapped at the air between them while the others circled closely behind.
Nail raised his hand in a plume of blue smoke and ended the distance between them. The magic splintering across its snout. The beast growled and snarled back angrily the hairs on its neck stood ferociously.
"Enough," I commanded as Nail withdrew his reach back into his robes. And appeased as the beast snorted from his nostrils, and retrieving itself behind the woman.
Her hands brushed the beast's face where Nail had struck him. The blue magic still on his fur, danced across her hands, bursting across her skin in sparks of electric lesions that made her skin glow red. Yet her face never changed, never wavered at the pain.
I looked at Nail.
"Lycan hide is mainly magic resistant. My lord. Though it seems to retain my spellcasting."
"He'll be fine," she spoke. Rubbing the last of the magic away from beneath her palms. As a human specie she had no magic of her own. Or resistance to it in any natural manner. In fact, my encounters with her kind showed that they were nothing more than soft, unarmored, unclawed, short toothed bags of flesh.
"You will not address The Dark Lord Ignitcus until spoken to human," Nail hissed beside me.
"What is your name woman?"
She approached slowly and bowed. Her head low a thousand times by practice. "I am lady Alune of kingdom Eir. I have come to ask for your protection."
There was howling amongst my guests. Bickering and growling amongst those present as well. Nail flicked his hand and a raven appeared. The bird was cold and rigid, with dry empty hollows for eyes having been gouged out and singed by the advisor eons ago.
"There are humans afoot my lord," he leaned in and whispered. "They are at the edge of our territory."
"How many?"
"Three on horseback. And a druid following closely behind." The raven's face twitched. "There could be more of them hidden in that druid's magic."
"Send a minion horde to remind them of where they are. And an emissary, not one of the grunts to greet them."
Nail nodded and turned to the eyeless raven and breathed out from his mouth a dense gas that filled its beak. He then crushed the raven between his fingers and it turned into a cloud of smoke. Blowing the remainder in his hands at the court. The haze traveled amongst the angry demons like a confectionary satisfying a sweet tooth. They quelled and would not be able to speak for several breaths.
The castle thundered with my voice, "Demon kind have warred with humans since the first Make. Siding with the Gate Keepers since the great wars. Coming here, I have every reason to kill you and no reason to spare your life. So what makes you think that I would be a choice for protection?"
"Because I am to be the princess."
The demons broke the spell with jesters and laughter.
"I am to be wed to the king's son, the Prince of Eir. But I have run away. And very soon a hunting party will come for me. They will be led by the King's eldest. Prince Calvern. He is said to be fearless and without defeat. The Angel of Novagrande. And he will enter your nation and demand that you return me in order to keep the peace between our two lands."
Nail stepped forward and the wolves bristled their necks, "How. Dare. You." There is anger etched into his face, lines of magic surging through his body.
"I am sorry my lord. I am merely stating what will happen. It is up to your to accept or deny them."
"This creatures means to put us at war, my liege." Nail opened his hand, and it glowed red with fire. "Let me end her now before she sets the world ablaze."
"Calvern," I breathed. "He make demands, from me?"
"Yes my lord."
"In my lands," I laughed. I could see the gleam appearing upon the eyes of my kingdemon as the thirst for blood silenced their other depravities. "They wish to come here. And make demands," I addressed them. Stepping off the throne in one stride and faced her. The omega lycans cowered around her, all except one. It faced me at the chest high. Its fangs bared, but its tail down with closed eyes.
"Nera," she said.
Slowly the wolf retreated. Fangs still bared.
I stood before the lady, towering over her shoulders as if my shadow were curtains. She was so tiny compared to me. Her waist easily able to fit in one hand. A thousand years ago, I would have grabbed her and crushed her between my fingers simply for being a human in my realms. Less now for the way she looked at me, unwavering. Uneducated in the danger she was in. Unaware of the power I held, and the brittleness of her bones.
However, unlike the others. She did not come in screaming and begging for her life. She came into my lair willingly.
"There will be none who take from me. But I believe. You already knew that." I stared into her eyes, letting the fire burn as if to consume her, to make her yield. A gift from the first fire given to me by the Earth, that would consume any as I let it rage. I could see sweat running down her face as the temperature grew, yet she never broke gaze. Anymore and she would be blind, I was sure of it.
I turned and ordered Nail to, "Tell the troops to wait for me. I will go greet this Prince and remind his people why this country has no walls on its border."
"My liege," Nail pleaded. "It is a necessary task to set examples for the humans to follow in their predecessors. A following of fear to not enter your lands. However, this is a prince, and not a mere commoner. Any confrontation will become personal to their king. Even more if he were to be greeted by the Lord of the castle, and mistreated. But perhaps if one of the minions slayed him, it would be more beneficial."
"Am I the Lord of this castle now? Or the ruler of these realms?"
"Forgive me," Nail withdrew. "I shall send word." He paused, "For the time being. What shall I do with the girl?"
"Leave her."
"Not to the dungeons?" Nail turned to stare at the beasts that had gathered around her. The one she called Nera whom he had struck and bared its teeth, nestled closely to her legs to keep her warm. "Not to the dungeons then my Lord."
I shrugged my shoulders and brushed them, removing the conjuration seals. Hell armor, crafted with the iron of the blood from my enemies appeared. And from the darkness, I plunged in my hand, and withdrew my sword Shimmer. Hammered by dwarves from the heart of the Earth's core. It weighed over ten pillars.
"Let us meet this prince," I grinned.

2023.06.01 20:07 lastmonsoxn Do I get my nails done

So my FYP on tiktok has been flooded with the gel and acrylic allergies. I use to get my nails done but that was a few years ago, never had any issues.
However due to my previous job I was not allowed to have any nail polish/ gel/ acrylic on so for a few years I hadn’t done them. Now finally I can get them done but I’m very worried to develop an allergy.
I’m based in UK so is there anything I can talk about with the nail tech I’ve found before booking an appointment? Anything to look out for as I’m clueless and genuinely worried about the allergies. Thank you!

2023.06.01 19:39 opabiniafan How I studied for a 527 in a month

Hi summer MCAT takers! Just submitted primary and have time to burn, so figure I'd throw in my thoughts and hopefully they're useful. One thing that I noticed when I was lurking on this sub for my test date was that in most guides, people study 3+ months for this test. While you obviously should give yourself the optimal amount of time that you can for this all important test, some of us have schedules that make it very hard to devote 3-5 hrs a day for that extended period of time to studying. I don't recommend anyone doing what I did though, which is that I got super manic in November, realized that I did not wanna go into finance, and was like "I need to do something or I'll die". That something happened to be signing up for the 1/19 MCAT, giving me a bit over a month to prepare from the end of my finals (12/12) to the test date. However, I do think shorter test prep timeframes are good if you have problems with motivation/burnout; the fact that the finish line was literally right in front of me at all times was truly terrifying, and this fear got me to run some heinous 10 hour studying sessions. Ultimately, would I have been better prepared if I studied 3+ months? Yes absolutely. But is dragging out your misery for 3+ months worth it for the chance of an extra point or two? Debatable, up to you. Hope my fellow procrastinators or anyone giving themselves <2 months to study, or anyone in general gets something useful out of this! Good luck studying!

Also, disclaimer about my score. I do not claim to be an expert on the MCAT, my last 3 FL's averaged 520, and I definitely got lucky with a big ass curve on my test day - if I took the MCAT 10 times, I doubt I would get a 527 any of those times.

Content Review
Used Kaplan books and finished them in a 10 day span. I think it is worth buying the set in the end, even though there were 2-4 questions that asked things not covered at all in the books on my real exam. However, if you don't wanna buy I think its fine too, the Kaplan books were kind of bad and the practice problems in them were close to worthless. 95% of everything that could be tested will be covered in the Kaplan books, however, the emphasis in the books is on overview rather than details. I think content review is the biggest slog in regards to studying for the MCAT and where its the easiest to burn out, so it'd be best just to grind through the books and fill in knowledge holes as you do practice questions later. What the AAMC says about content breakdown is definitely true, where only 30% of questions relied on prior knowledge and 70% of questions were critical thinking. If you can nail the critical thinking, even without any content, I think a 510+ is very realistic. Spend your time accordingly! Personally, I had no need to spend hours relearning stuff like the Central Dogma or other big concepts, so I do think that a more effective method if you retained most out of undergrad courses is to go skim the books and do daily review on the content outline @ jackwestin while you do practice q's. I would just do content review (in the form of occasional khan academy videos, youtube stuff, and random jack westin articles I chose) as a break every night after my practice questions in the day. Overall, biochemistry is the most important class. You should spend the most time on stuff from biochem, and make sure you know the major concepts and themes AAMC wants you to know. I found it super helpful to write notes on everything I didn't know, from various physics concepts to random facts in a notebook that i'd look over before I slept every night. For cp and bb, it is essential to know anything involving relationships (what happens to resistance if temperature increases? what happens to hemoglobin affinity for oxygen as pH increases?). During content review, a good mindset to have is that the only "high yield" concepts are the amino acids, Le Chatelier's rule, Piaget and Erickson's stages, mitosis/meiosis, separatory techniques, and Michaelis-Menten kinetics. You will for sure get multiple questions about those, but treat any other concept as just yield, there is no such thing as low yield everything is fair game.

Practice Q's
I started after I had already done two full lengths and a diagnostic, and I did all of the official AAMC question packs, and all of the jack westin ones I could fit in. No particular schedule, I would just do as many of these every day until I got sick of it. I found it much more motivating to do questions rather than content review, because the idea of "this is an old test question, if i had gotten this, I would have missed it" was a terrifying thought. I think the most important part of this is to carefully review everything you get wrong. I also had a notebook specifically dedicated to questions that I got wrong, where I'd write the info that I had missed or write down why my line of thinking was wrong. Also, I would comb reddit during my breaks to try to find little facts that I didn't know (110 daltons per amino acid, fetal circulatory shunts), and add them to my memorization book. Using the JackWestin chrome extension really helps for detailed explanations of questions, because the AAMC ones are kinda shit sometimes. The JW extension especially helps for CARS sections, and I credit my score there to the extension. All in all, I think that my success on the actual test was largely due to the practice questions I did. I tried to find a good heuristic to use to evaluate what the AAMC's correct answer would be to the question based off of patterns in the passage and answer choices. As a reminder, the test really is 30% memorization 70% critical thinking. Now it might not be smart to spend 70% of your prep period grinding practice problems, but at least a representative amount of time should be allocated to practicing the critical thinking that the AAMC wants.

Practice Exams
I did one a week until the last 2 weeks, where I did 4 in that span. I took 7 total, one diagnostic and the 6 AAMC ones. My scores were 503, 516, 518, 524, 521, 519, 521. I'd use a third party test as your diagnostic, to figure out where you need work, but do know that all of the 3rd party ones are 1. not too accurate to real test 2. very deflated to encourage you to buy their product. Just use me as an anecdote; I got a 503 on the Kaplan and then a 516 on my first AAMC full length and I had only done 3 days of content review between those two. Do take a diagnostic ASAP though, it helps you see what you're working towards and serves as a great motivator. I got my 503 and sat in disbelief before working nonstop until my next practice test. Use the diagnostic to figure out which areas in content you are the most lacking, and whether these gaps are a result of you missing the small memorization details or a lack of understanding of the broader themes (of genetics, respiration, etc). If you have more time than me, there are many more 3rd party ones to do if you feel like it, but do treat the AAMC full lengths like gold, as they are the most representative of how you'll do on the real thing. From my own judgement, save full length 5 (the new in 2022 one) for last, as it was very close to my real one, a sentiment shared by people on reddit. Try as much as possible to stimulate real test conditions: wake up at 6, start at 8, go on low sleep conditions, try to get your stress levels up, adhere to timing, drink and pee only during breaks. This is something I didn't do and thus was very unprepared for how stressed I was during real thing (the thought that "wow if I fuck this up I'm done for" is super serious). Something that I think would have also helped me test day is if I set strict guidelines for time spent on questions. I would just take as long as I wanted and generally blow through them as they felt low stakes, whereas on test day, I would stare for minutes at questions I knew were correct because I was super nervous that I was dumb and overlooked something.

Test day:
Took adderall for the test, something I do not recommend. I had done so for two practice tests and did fine, but also I was much more stressed. The adderall combined with my stress threw all my test taking skills went out the window and I was super pressed for time on the exam. Bring easy snacks and energy bars. The exact thought I was having was: "If I get this question wrong my entire college career will have been for nothing". Scary. Take the practice tests with this mindset and you'll be more prepared than me. I got there 40 minutes early to take a dump because I always need to mad shit when I'm nervous, but as long as you're there before 8 you're fine. Overall, a lot more critical thinking and reading the passage than I thought, so definitely do take the day before completely off. C/p was probably 40% gen chem topics 30 % biochem 25 % physics 5% orgo. Practice your mental math and find a method that works for you; I saw myself getting an answer that wasn't a choice and realized an error in my setups. There were 4-6 questions in C/P that was just straight mental math. Like no conceptual setup at all just what is x divided by y (which you could figure out by looking at units). CARS felt like normal difficulty, I usually did well on CARS; eliminate all wrong answers and then find something in the passage that explicitly confirms your answer choice type strategy is what I used. Find whatever works for you during the AAMC question packs. B/B exactly what I was expecting, similar to all practice tests. Got the three "fuck you" discretes here, know for sure I got two wrong but I still got a 132 on the section. Just another anecdote about how spending your time pulling your hair out over the small details isn't gonna yield a good ROI. I think something that helped a lot for me here is the amount of scientific literature I've had to read for my work in research labs, so the comprehension part/figuring out the relationships between the vocab they throw at you came relatively easily. P/s had no concepts out of the blue, and about 80 % of it could have been solved without any knowledge of the subjects; they were all critical thinking and reasoning within passages. Of course again, there were some wack ones but I feel like 1. hitting them with the process of elimination 2. doing flashcards would easily take care of any issues on the content side of things. Also the question style was very similar to full lengths, almost identical in style to full length 5.

Things I think worked well for me:
The very short amount of time I had to review enabled me to stay motivated, because I could literally see the end at all times. Burnout is a real problem for a singular test, and I think I did well keeping motivated from a combination of doing problems (getting things wrong spurred me to study more) and seeing friends at night after studying. Take care of yourself, seeing friends/going on dates/playing sports/whatever you enjoy and takes your mind off your impending doom is absolutely necessary. You physically cannot study effectively for days on end with no break, and if your break involves stressing about the MCAT, it's not a break. You're just killing your hairline. I think the memorization sheet I had of everything that I got wrong in addition to concepts I felt were weak/didn't know at all when I was reviewing, that I studied every night, also netted me at least 5 points. I think that grinding reddit helped me pick up a lot of really small facts that I otherwise would've glossed over, and 5-8 things that I saw in "Content dump" posts actually came up in my real test. Finally, I think that test taking skills (finessing skills) that I had tuned throughout my life were really important. Process of elimination is the way to go, at least 2 choices will be obviously wrong, and getting a feel for the AAMC logic through practicing their material can get u to the right answer in 75% of cases where you don't know it immediately. To beat the horse dead, the MCAT really is 70% critical thinking 30% content, and you do want to practice your test taking accordingly with those weights somewhat in mind.
Things I wished I did differently during review:
DON'T DRINK DURING YOUR REVIEW PERIOD. I went out with friends for the first two weekends because finals were over, and ended up blacking one night and getting stupid the others. This definitely set me a few days back - I could not do any work hungover and those nights I didn't sleep at my own place, so by the time I left, it was like 2pm. Definitely felt harried during review, mostly as a result of the short time period but also a result of the many rest days I took/burnout. While I think taking breaks is very important, I think I went about it poorly (I did not plan out study period at all going in, something that I wish I did) and as a result I realized leading up to the exam that I did not know certain things very well and so the last 5 days were a grind (I didn't go outside in the last 3 days at all because I realized I didn't understand electricity or lenses. neither of these topics were in my full length lol). In addition, I wish I did more jack westin problems, as their explanations are quite good in helping me figure out the way the AAMC words the correct answer. I discovered them with 2 weeks left, but I wish I had done so earlier. I do think that anki decks (I used miledown's deck, findable online) are also great for learning small facts, but again, I didn't have the motivation to do them every day.

2023.06.01 18:23 jjfajen Apex Predator (Part 47)

Memory transcription subject: Daniel Price, UTC Special Forces
Date [standardized human time]: September 8, 2140
I don’t know how long the fighting lasted. The sound of gunfire and flamethrower tanks detonating sank into white noise as we held out our position. Colton dealt with most of the initial wave before they even reached the building, but then came the second and the third waves. Halfway into the second onslaught Colton ran out of ammo for his rifle. Switching to his sidearm he assisted us with the defense of the sole entrance to the office. The desk proved sturdy enough to provide cover against enemy fire. Here Tassev’s machine gun did most of the heavy lifting, but we had to take over more than once when the gun's barrel overheated and needed to be switched out. If we had faced a similar amount of resistance trying to get in here we never would have taken this room in the first place.
During this time the Kolshian regained his senses, though he was content to stew silently while the fighting was still ongoing. I noticed him trying to wiggle from his binds more than once, but he got nowhere. We might have gone a little overboard restraining him, overcompensating for his unorthodox biology, but it was better to go overkill than to be surprised at the worst possible time.
I didn’t know what we would do if we ran out of ammo. Grab guns from those we already killed? Take the Governor hostage and attempt to make a break for it? No, we couldn’t carry Amja out with us if we attempted that. As I counted down my few remaining mags I came to the grim realization we couldn’t make it through another assault. With two Arxur on our side we had the advantage in a melee, but as the old saying goes, nobody wins in a knife fight. Steadying my aim through the doorway we waited for the fourth wave. In this lull I had a moment to process the horrid scene in front of me. Bodies were piled along the walkway all the way to the end of the hallway. At some points piled up where they had been used as makeshift cover. Most of our assailants had been Krakotl, whose purple blood dripped sickeningly down from the walkways onto the ballroom floor below. Of the few Yotul that had attacked, most were exterminators, though their charred bodies were hardly recognizable as such. At one point Tassev had managed to nail an exterminator’s tank and engulfed the entire hallway in a fireball. The building itself, despite the seemingly wood detailing, appeared to be fireproof thankfully. If it wasn’t we would be taking a tumble out the second story window by now to avoid being burned alive. Fur and feathers were noticeably more flammable than the manor itself however, and filled the air with a putrid stench. After a long enough pause in the fighting, Usli droned out the area and saw no remaining hostiles. If there were any survivors among the enemy, they retreated. With a sigh of relief I took count of our remaining ammo, and it didn’t look good. I ordered Tassev to collect guns from the fallen. Their ammo would be incompatible with our weapons, so if we ran out we would have to switch to them entirely. Only the manor's guards would have anything of value, lugging around the few intact flamethrowers was the last thing we wanted to do.
As Tassev vaulted the desk I turned to the rest of my squad, “The area’s secure, for now. I want this place turned upside down. Document anything and everything of interest. Colton, there’s got to be a radio or something somewhere in here, if we can get an update on how the battle’s going that would be nice. Usli, search around for any electronics and download anything they’ve got.” I got started searching through the desk which had provided us cover. Most of the documents within that weren't shredded by bullets were of no interest: economic spreadsheets, architectural plans for additions to the manner (all dated after 2139), some personal letters which I opted to document, etc.
There was some commotion as Usli seized the Governor’s holopad. “Quit moving!,” Usli shouted as he kicked the Kolshian, causing him to double over. In most instances I would have told him to cool it, but after what we had just been through I could think of worse ways to release some stress than beating on the SOB.
“Anything Colton,” I asked.
“Nothing. Well, there looks to be an old TV back here but I doubt we’ll get any channels. You know we could try contacting the shuttle again, it’s not like our position hasn’t already been compromised. If they’re still kicking they’ll be in contact with the fleet.”
Pulling out my radio I realized it had a bullet lodged in it. After a second of vertigo I dropped the ruined electronic and turned to Colton again, “Can I borrow yours? Mine is uh, shot. Literally.”
“Seriously? Damn, sure no problem.”
Tuning his radio to the right frequencies I started, “This is Taskforce Revenant calling out, does anyone copy?” Static was the only answer. “This is Captain Price of Taskforce Revenant, does anyone copy?”
“This is UTCS Luanda, over. We hear you loud and clear Taskforce Revenant.”
Wait, Luanda? That’s a battlecruiser, and for it to be contacting us directly… they’d have to be in atmosphere. “What’s the situation up there, we’ve been in the dark planetside.”
“You haven’t heard? Feds are running with their tails between their legs, Captain. We took some minor dings but nothing that won’t buff out. Terran forces have complete orbital control.”
I couldn’t keep the relief out of my voice as I answered back, “That’s great to hear. I need you to relay a message to Command. We are requesting immediate evac from the Yotul capital. Our current position is in a structure called the Chancellor’s Manor. We are in possession of a potential HVT, the military governor of Yotul Prime, and intel on Federation operations on the planet. We’ve been pinned down for, I don’t know, an hour maybe? The site is secure now, but we are low on ammunition and have a civilian in need of medical attention.”
“Relaying now. In the meantime stay put and we’ll have reinforcements sent via drop pod within 15 minutes.”
The whole atmosphere in the room lightened up. It was over. We won in space and soon enough the last holdouts on the planet would either surrender or be destroyed. I turned to Amja, who was still conscious, but obviously in pain, “You hear that? We won! The Yotul are free.” She cracked a weak smile.
“You haven’t won,” The Kolshian piped up. “You’ve freed no one, just enslaved them in ways they can’t see.”
“Well would you look at that,” Colton said. “He speaks! And here I was thinking the squid was a mute.”
“Mock me all you want, predator. It doesn’t change the fact that you are a blight on the galaxy. Nor does it change the outcome of this war.”
“I dunno, that’s a lot of tough talk for someone bound up and surrounded by ‘vicious’ predators.”
“Vile creature. We would have done well to exterminate you all before your corruption spread.”
“Alright I’ll bite,” Colton continued, “no pun intended. What do you have against predators? Don’t lie and say it’s because you’re afraid of me. Sure that applies to most Feds we’ve met, but you’re different. It’s in the way you talk. Your feeling towards us isn’t fear, it’s disgust.”
“How astute for a primate. Like I said, predators are a blight on the galaxy, a malignant tumor that consumes all that it touches. My kind creates order. Your kind only knows destruction. Nay, you are destruction, chaos manifest. It’s in your DNA, crucial to your very being that you must destroy to live. You humans hide behind your facade of ‘civilization’ better than the Arxur, but you can’t hide what you truly are underneath it all.” His frog-like eyes narrowed as his pupils darted between Usli and Amja. “Likewise, of all the predators in this room the stench radiates most readily from the two Yotul among you.”
“What are you on about?”
“Arguably worse than you are those who hide among us, harboring the instincts of a predator unbeknownst to others. They are diseased, no doubt, to stand your kind’s presence let alone work with you.” He looked directly at Usli, “One can call you violent, insolent, primitive, and it rolls off like water. But when I call you what you are, diseased, watch how you recoil. Because deep down you know your ruse has been found out!”
Usli did recoil slightly, but at the insult of being called primitive, not whatever nonsense the Kolshian was spewing. “Enough of that,” I interrupted. “If I have to listen to one more second of that squid’s tirade I am going to jump out a window. There’s nothing to gain from egging him on.” I looked to the Kolshian, “And you. You will only speak when spoken to or I’ll tape your mouth shut personally.”
Colton huffed and turned to dig through a filing cabinet. Jokingly he asked no one in particular, “You think they’ll give us front row seats if he gets the Kalsim treatment?”
Tassev returned with his arms full of weapons. I informed him of the situation and he opted to stand guard in front of the door rather than sort through files with the rest of us. It was probably for the best, I don’t think anyone else besides maybe Jath could withstand the stench that permeated the hall. Finding I had sorted through everything in the desk, I moved over to help Colton search the filing cabinets. After a minute or so of doing that Usli finally broke into the Kolshian’s holopad.
“Well well well, looks like someone left a lot of sensitive files on their personal device, tsk tsk tsk. You’d think you 'advanced' species have better OPSEC,” Usli said mockingly. “Daniel, you want to check this out? I’ll see if I can get that computer up and running again.
“Sure, let’s see,” I said, taking the holopad and flipping through random files. I thought out loud as I opened some, “We’ve got manifests offworld, all going to the same system interestingly enough. Renovation plans including a pleasure garden complete with a 800,000 gallon swimming pool. Always a good look when the people you govern are surviving off scraps. Exterminator incident reports, risk assessment meetings, wait…” I opened the folder of exterminator incident reports. The files were separated by what I assumed was the Federation equivalent of months and years. The dates were auto translated, but it made the subdivisions look somewhat arbitrary as a result. It went back to 2137 and there were thousands upon thousands of reports. “Usli, just how common were predators when you lived here?”
“Not at all. When there was a predator sighting it would make headlines for a week.”
I looked back to the holopad. Clicking on individual incidents revealed more in depth details. The exterminators on the call, what precinct they were with, the location of the incident, resolution, and more. Under resolution every single one was marked DEPURATION. I scrolled down, and it just kept going. Eventually I found a couple instances of other resolutions: TERMINATION, INCONCLUSIVE, and RELOCATION. I opened up other pages, other times, and it was all the same. The number of incidents were excessive. Trying to scroll to the bottom of one subsection I gave up after a solid minute flying past thousands of reports with no end in sight.
“Under Exterminator incident reports there’s thousands of incidents. Almost every single one has its resolution marked as depuration.”
“What?,” Usli said, looking up from the computer. “Let me see.”
“It just keeps going, there must be tens, hundreds of thousands of individual reports.”
“That can’t be right. The Federation wiped out almost every predator on the planet during the uplift.”
I looked back to Amja, she was stone-faced staring at the Kolshian. “Those aren’t wild predators, those are people. The people you took.”
The Kolshian remained silent.
I allowed Usli to take the holopad and focused my attention on the cephalopoid. “What’s the meaning of this?”
The Kolshian took on an uncanny expression, I couldn’t tell if it was his species’ equivalent of a smile or glare. “If you must know, this world was infested when we took custodianship over the Yotul. It is little wonder that they planned to join you. Our scientists during first contact must have had faulty equipment. Either that or our screenings have become far more effective in the last few decades, because cases of predator disease were 256% more prevalent in the Yotul population than the galaxy at large. Perhaps a vestigial remnant of predator ancestors, but I digress. Cases of the disease were even more prevalent among the ruling class as well, being 37% more common in that demographic even when using a Yotul baseline. We simply did what was necessary.”
“And what was ‘necessary’?”
“Hmm, less perceptive than your pack member? Recalling our previous conversation, what do you do to a cancer?”
I knew damn well what he was alluding to, but I needed a straight answer right from his mouth, “I don’t know. Elaborate.”
He groaned, as if bored by the interrogation, “I knew your medicine was primitive, but I had no idea-”
“Answer. The. Question.”
“Hmph. A cancer cannot be allowed to take hold and spread. You are presented with two options, curtail its means of replication or cut it out.”
A stunned silence purveyed the room. I turned and snatched the holopad from Usli’s hands, he made no reaction to this action. I could feel anger slipping into my voice as I said, “All of these ‘incidents’. All of these people. What did you do to them?! And don’t answer me with any analogies or euphemisms! Tell me the truth!”
“We removed them from the general population and salvaged the ones we could. The ones that couldn’t be saved… well originally it would have been a matter of continuing their segregation from the populous and implementing strict population controls, but with the food shortages your kind have caused these past few years I had to make a decision. Why should healthy citizens go hungry because of individuals who are a net deficit to society.”
I stood in silence taking in his answer. The implication was obvious, but the bastard refused to outright say it. Hatred boiled to the surface as I replied, “You starved them.”
“Sending food to this backwater was already a low priority when core worlds needed to be fed. So why not dispose of the refuse of this world and save some for those that remained? Sure a more expedited method could have been chosen, but if the goal is to conserve resources then why spend more to achieve the same result faster?”
“You genocidal motherfucker. How many?” I flipped through the lists faster and faster before throwing the holopad to the floor. “How many millions of innocents did you murder for your perfect world?”
Though the Kolshian’s expression was hard to judge, it took on a look akin to annoyance as he sat silently in front of me.
“Answer me you piece of shit!” I yelled, “You killed all of these people, and for what? Because they had this ‘predator disease’? Murdered them just because they were different, just because they didn’t fit your vision? How many did you starve under the pretense of this pseudoscientific bullshit?!”
The Kolshian’s calm demeanor cracked as he grew incensed at my direct attack on his ideology. He barked, “Not enough!”
“Y-you monster…”, Usli stuttered, backing up out of my peripheral vision in shock.
The Kolshian’s eyes narrowed on Usli again. “Says the one in league with predators! The gall of you to call me the monster.” He looked back to me, “And none of your poisoned, ignorant, words would make me hesitate for an instant to continue my work! You call me a murderer as if your kind is any better. I know what you are even if you refuse to acknowledge it. At least I served to promote the greater good. What ends did the genocides in your own history serve? Exactly, your silence speaks volumes. What is the price of millions when my work serves to save billions? I will not grovel to you beasts or beg for your faux mercy. My only regret is that now all of those deaths will be for nothing. We wasted so much time and so many resources trying to uplift these primitives. And what did we get in return? Nothing! On second thought, I lied. I also regret that I didn’t kill more of these disease ridden, backstabbing, primi-
A single gunshot rang out, splattering blue blood across my face as the Kolshian slumped over, trailing blood on the wall behind him. I turned around to see Usli standing there, arm shaking, with a pistol in hand. Hearing the gunshot, Tassev vaulted into the room, gun at the ready, before stopping dead in his tracks upon observing the scene in front of him. Silence overtook us as we stood there in shock. Slowly I stepped back and dropped my rifle to the floor. Holding out my arms I approached Usli. The conflicted expression on his face contradicted the action he had just committed. Stepping forward I calmly spoke, “Take it easy, Usli. Put down the gun.” His grip became shakier, but he was still pointing it straight ahead. He breathed out and blinked rapidly. His composure was barely maintained as his breathing accelerated. “It’s okay bud, just put it down. I’m right here, look at me.”
His pupils darted to me and back forward multiple times before he drew his arm back and threw the pistol at the dead Kolshian. Wasting no time he lunged forward, unleashing a barrage of stomps and kicks on the body. He let out a shrill cry before screaming, “HOW’S THAT FOR PRIMITIVE YOU FEDERATION FUCK!”
Tassev immediately moved in to restrain our friend, but even with the massive Arxur grabbing both of his arms his fury was barely contained, his only focus being the dead Kolshian in front of him. “FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU! I’LL KILL YOU ALL! EVERY LAST GODDAMN ONE OF YOU! I’LL FUCKING KILL YOU ALL! LET GO OF ME!”
Jath moved in and helped Tassev restrain his arms. I never thought in all my years I would see two imposing Arxur struggle to keep hold of a single Yotul, but Usli fought like a man possessed. I snapped out of shock and rushed in front of him, grabbing a leg as he kicked blindly. Finally we were able to take him off balance and pin him to the floor. He was still screaming profanities at the top of his lungs as I tried to get through to him. “Pull yourself together man! It’s us! Chill, chill!” He thrashed like a wild animal caught in a trap, looking in every direction as he expended his finite supply of energy trying to escape our grasp.
“LET ME AT HIM! LET ME GO! I’LL KILL EVERY ONE OF THOSE TENTACLED FREAKS, I SWEAR IT!”
Jath was next to try and calm him, “Relax, look at me. Look at me! It’s me. It’s okay, we’re here. Stop fighting. STOP!”
“I’LL, I- I…” His thrashes waned in intensity and we were finally able to let go. With the last of his energy he curled into a ball on the floor and began sobbing. I stumbled to my feet and tried to catch my breath. Usli’s mumbled words in between sobs were unintelligible, with the only one I could parse being “father”. Wiping the blood from my face, I hunched over the Kolshian. He was dead, no doubt. The bullet went right between his eyes.
I paced in front of the body, how the fuck were we going to explain this to Command? Usli just executed a prisoner, a top ranking official that they would very much have liked to have alive. The bastard had it coming a thousand times over, but fuck not like this! What would they do? Strip him of his rank? Court-martial and imprison him? I walked over to Colton, who was standing off to the side close to Amja. I turned him away from the rest and whispered, “This is bad, this is seriously fucked.”
“What do we do?”
“I don’t know. Last thing Command heard was that we had an HVT ready for extraction and now he’s dead on the floor. You can’t just hide that!”
“But if we tell the truth?”
“They’ll court-martial him. At best they’ll find the circumstances such that he’ll be honorably discharged.”
“And worst case?”
“You already know.”
Colton put a fist to his mouth, trying to think, and muttered a curse under his breath. We stood there for a moment contemplating our options when Amja spoke up, “I did it.”
In unison we turned and responded, “What?”
“I shot the Governor. I killed him.”
Usli, who by now had buried his face in Jath’s shoulder, stepped back on shaky legs and looked at her. His voice came out as a hoarse whisper, “N-no. You shouldn’t take the blame. I did it. It’s my fault. My responsibility.”
“No it ain’t. You did nothing wrong, he deserved every bit of it. Besides, I had the motive.” With some difficulty she unholstered her firearm with her still functioning offhand, “And the means. It was out of your control, you were interrogating him and I shot him, as I intended to from the beginning. I deceived you so I could get revenge, like Ugo warned me not to do.” She looked at me and gestured with her gun, “Take it.”
I hesitated.
“Take it, you wouldn’t let me keep it after what I did.”
I grabbed the gun and inspected it for a moment. I sighed and, crouching down to her level, fired several times, hitting the Kolshian’s body in various locations while purposefully missing a shot or two. Standing up I explained to her, “I imagine you’re not a great shot with your offhand.” That would hold up in the AAR. It would have to. With the last piece of evidence planted it was time to complete the ruse.
“UTCS Luanda, this is Taskforce Revenant do you copy?”
“Copy What’s the situation?”
I took in a deep breath, and let it out before continuing, “High value target is KIA.”
“What happened?”
My gaze wandered to Usli, who was back in Jath’s embrace. “The civilian in our company killed him. I was interrogating the subject when she opened fire. She’s been stripped of any weapons and is cooperative.”
“Roger, ETA on reinforcements is 5 minutes.”
Putting the radio down I fell backwards into a chair and let out a deep breath, slumping forward to cradle my head in my hands. All there was to do now was wait for evac.

2023.06.01 16:50 Doctrinal1631 Replace book edges' art gilt

I have a Bible that had a blue ink pen that accidentally touched the edges, and to cover it out, I painted the edges with watercoloposter paint over the art gilt under the gold gilding, and it didn't satisfy me. To make things more complicated, I'm in a country where rebinding is not a popular business. Thus, I am in a narrow choice at the moment.
So, I was thinking about the following options:
1) I can repaint it with either red archival ink or white ink, if it will work (pls explain to me a bit more) , and then spray over the edges with metallic gold acrylic spray paint.
OR
2) ask the edges to be cut/shaved a little by a bookbinding service so I can spray the same metallic gold acrylic spray paint.
Other options and recommendations are open for consideration. Thanks for all your inputs!

2023.06.01 16:14 Patient-Tiger-45 Acrylic nail ripped my real nail off

just to add some context, there is still a slither of nail left that also has a bit of acrylic on it (not sure what to do about getting that off?) I smacked my nail against my bed there was A LOT of blood, luckily my boyfriend and his mum were here as I vomited and even passed out. I am absolutely devastated my nails are my pride and joy, without my nails looking nice, I never feel fully "pretty". I know it sounds very over exaggerated but they're very important to me. I just want to know if there's any hope for it growing back? Should I put a plaster on it to prevent infection or leave it in open air to heal? How do I get the acrylic left on my nail off? Panicking a lot at the minute!

2023.06.01 15:19 lizbrd SOS I just got acrylic nails

Okay so it’s my birthday today so I treated myself to a full set cause I haven’t had my nails done since before covid. And I’ve only been playing around with polymer clay for a year; so I didn’t even think about the fact they’d be a problem. But they are. I just tried getting back to my current project, and I can’t do shit.
Does anyone here have acrylic nails who is a clayer? (Idk just made that term up) I need pointers cause I feel like I won’t be able to sculpt while I have fake nails.
(P.s. I’ve got Almond shaped nails so they’re like just under 1cm past my finger, for context, idk)
