Gorm's Epic (English Version)
Episode 1 The End of the Exodus A great, huge ship, a real Ark of 130 cubits, was sailing on the flat sea of a blue and sunny afternoon.
-…I still wonder why you gave such a name to our ship…-
Krom-Nav said, as he steered the wheel. The two brothers always had something to say about each other: Krom-Nav was the eldest, always dutiful and precise in his duties, while Yughy, the youngest, was the more reckless one, always ready to experiment. The first had long brown hair that stopped at his shoulders, light and large eyes, a smooth beard that started under the hooked nose, surrounded the mouth, and ended by covering the chin with a point. The second had shorter hair, hazel, darker eyes, a veil of beard on the chin, both tall, athletic bodied, Krom leaner and Yughy Sturdier, dressed, like the rest of their people on that great ship, in animal furs decorated with the symbols of their people: Five symbols that indicated the elements, Water, Earth, Plants, Air, Fire, which all revered and respected. The two had very different characters: Yughy was impulsive, skilled at manual labor, a hothead who often acted on feeling rather than reason. Krom, on the other hand, was more methodical, more thoughtful, didn't talk much unless necessary, loved to read, and always kept a watchful eye on his people and crew.
  • Come on brother! It's been years since we set sail! You should have figured it out! He means “Earth”!- -And I repeat that "Terra", for a ship that sails on water, seems to me a name that is not at all suitable, Yughy…- -AH! BUT YOU DON'T REALLY UNDERSTAND ANYTHING! It's called "Earth" as a good omen! That is to FIND the EARTH, after this very long journey at sea! It's a metaphor, a synonym of Hope!- -Maybe…for me the name Gheos, it still seems strange to me…- -You'll see that you'll get used to it sooner or later…- -Okay! You get used to taking the helm!-
Krom said, walking away, while Yughy looked at him in amazement.
And laughing, he made his way to the large stern. Their relationship had always been like this, since they were children. Bound by a brotherly love that occasionally cracked, but never broke. Even in the darkest moment, in fact, they were together.
10 years earlier, on a very distant coast, on a misty island, stood the village of Missa, a village known for its constant mist. The Missians were a peaceful people, dedicated to agriculture, livestock and fishing, and worshiped the elements of Nature: The Earth, on which they could build their houses, The Plants, which gave them shelter and nourishment, The Air , which moved their mills and relieved them from the heat, Water, which gave them its fish and quenched their thirst, and Fire, which protected and warmed them in the dark nights. Some of them were called Old Sages: They were those who mediated between the Elements of Nature and the material world, holders of ancient powers with which they were born and which they then handed down to their successors. They could blend in and disappear in the eyes of others, use their magic to perform miracles, could increase their strength and speed dramatically, and could read minds and move objects with their thoughts. The title of "Old Sage" referred to the first Village Chief, an old man who helped his people to settle in that place, facing dangers and vicissitudes using his magic to create bridges, drive away beasts and make the land fertile. Since then, individuals with similar powers, even young ones, have received this nomea, a noble title for those who would have been the guides, defenders, or scholars of ancient primordial arts.
There Krom-Nav and Yughy were born. Since they were children they showed innate abilities: Krom spoke with plants and animals, perfectly understanding their moods and intentions without his mouth producing sound, and he was able to exploit the air currents to run faster or make the windmills move, while Yughy was able to manipulate the fire, deflect water in the fields with only the laying on of hands and carried heavy rocks making them float with the power of his mind. Both were in total control of the elements of Nature, and were the most talented of those with their powers. The other villagers respected them, and somewhat feared their power. Krom tried to use his powers to improve life in the village, and was always thinking of his fellow citizens, but Yughi was a much more restless spirit: He composed works of art, sculpting the surrounding hills, but often caused disasters such as landslides and mountain slides, when they pissed him off, he controlled torches to set the pants of troublemakers on fire, and played with water, causing it to float in the air, but when he got distracted, the water fell back, often ruining previously irrigated fields. All pranks that Krom-Nav then had to solve, and the bickering between the two brothers was all too frequent. After a few years, the two grew up, and Krom-Nav was elected full-fledged Sage and head of the village of Missa, while Yughy, also elected Sage, became his trusted second. But not even the time to celebrate, that the tragedy struck the village. A neighboring village, made up of a tribe of hunters and vandals, wanted to take possession of the powers of the Sages of Missa. Thus a war broke out which nearly wiped out the Missians, as the enemies burned houses and destroyed crops. In a last desperate attempt, Krom-Nav defended the survivors of his people, together with other Old Sages and the best Missian warriors, while Yughy shaped with his Psychic power, the metal extracted from the earth, and the wood of the last unburnt forests, a large and stately ship where all the Missians boarded. The few left to defend them sacrificed themselves with honor as Krom-Nav mounted Gheos, and set sail, concentrating his powers and controlling the wind to swell the ship's sails. That terrible night, fortunately, most of the Missians survived, including Yughy, Krom-Nav, and his still infant son, little Lehander.
Lehander was now 10 years old, born with one yellow and one black eye, his hair shimmered in the light and turned dull in the shade, he was an enterprising and playful child, also endowed with powers, like his father. While his uncle steered, and Krom, his father, made sure all was well on the ship, Lehander slept peacefully in the hold, where everyone's dormitories resided. As the ship cradled him in the waves, his dreams came alive with strange visions: Before him loomed an ominous mountain, tall, with spiers that seemed to form a thorny crown of pointed rocks, and the front wall carved as if it were an evil visage. From the "mouth" of the mountain, incandescent lava and magma came out, a real river of death, and from it arose monstrous creatures with red and yellow skin. Then the dream became absurd, moved, strange, many different images of strange creatures fighting against fire demons, until everything suddenly stopped. Lehander saw the Volcano, again, but this time from above, and with it a whole island, huge, with blue seas, green forests, steep mountain ranges and all sorts of natural wonders. Then in front of him, a ball of light. When he tried to touch her, he woke up. It was now full night and beside him was his father.
-DAD…DAD WAKE UP!- Krom-Nav opened his eyes lazily, seeing his son shaken.
-Hey…did you have that nightmare again?- -Yes! But this time it was longer! There was the Volcano, the demons, and then other creatures appeared, and they all lived on this huge and beautiful island in the middle of the sea!-
Krom, listened curious, but disturbed. His son not only had both his and his brother's abilities, but he had developed unusual powers: He often saw how the child, in totally random moments, was able to move his own and the shadows of objects hit by the sun, as if they were solid, and he was able to mold them into any shape. In the same way he was able to "take" the rays of the sun or the moon that shone through the cracks in the wood of the ship to illuminate a totally dark place. He also had the unnerving ability to make small predictions: Krom could not get out of his mind how, one day, Lehander said "I'm going to look for a blanket.", and in that instant the climate, which until then had been scorching, suddenly became cloudy and cold, so much so that he had to interrupt the navigation for two days. So those dreams she told him were hard to ignore. They sounded absurd, but what if they were harbingers of something horrific? He couldn't take this lightly, he had learned over the years that chance was nothing more than a way for the mind to justify natural phenomena and destiny. Krom spoke about this a few nights later with his brother Yughy, after Lehander had a similar vision again, but he kept telling him not to worry, while they were at the bow looking at the sea, that probably the child's immature powers made harmless pranks.
-Krom, you get too worked up…do you remember, when we were kids, I had that dream about a red-hot rock that would hit me on the head?- -Yes, I remember…you were so agitated that when you finally sat down under a tree and a pine cone hit you, you passed out for hours from terror.- -You never remember nice things…anyway if you notice I was a child, and while you already had conversations with blackbirds and lizards, I still had to figure out how to avoid setting fire to the grove behind the house…- -So you want to tell me that Lehander is only very young?- -And also that his powers sometimes go to his head! Then he's always been a kid with a wild imagination, you shouldn't take it too seriously!-
The two continued to converse about it, while the night sky was lit only by moonlight. Krom-Nav continued to be worried about his son's visions, while Yughy continued to reassure him. Krom, however, couldn't get over it, since that wasn't the only thing troubling him.
-Sometimes, when he thinks he's alone, I hear him talking as if he were with someone else...often it almost seems like he's "arguing" with himself.- -Maybe just play, don't you think?- -I know my son, and I distinguish well when he plays and when something is wrong. He's had weird attitudes ever since he started walking on this ship. He has powers unlike ours or any other Sage who have come before us, plus it seems as if he is never fully awake…I think this journey has become too long…our people need a place to call home…and this vessel can no longer be. Far too many people were born and died here, and I think that the continuous wandering in the sea for years is doing as much harm to our body as to our psyche.- -I know brother...I know...-
Yughy said, as he placed a hand on her shoulder.
-…But I'm sure we're almost there. I read the stars yesterday, they seemed to be in the right position, and a few days ago I saw some seagulls in the sky! We are certainly close to the earth!- -You say? What if it was just an islet? A tiny strip of land?- -It will mean that we will replenish the supplies, we could take Lehi and the other children for a walk, and then we will leave again! Where there is a strip of land Often there are others not far away, who knows, maybe after that we won't find a bigger island, or an entire continent!- -…Let's hope so…- -Hey, Hey! Don't make that face. Come on, if I can get that frown out of you, as soon as we stop I'll have Lehander go on a little adventure! As soon as he helps me gather wood, he'll forget about his bad dreams! What are you saying, big brother?- -…Thanks Yughy.-
They continued to converse for a while, Krom-Nav felt more and more reassured by the words of his brother, who had always helped him raise his son: While escaping from Missa, little Lehander's mother, Astreg, was killed by an arrow shot straight to the heart. Krom-Nav had not had time to bury her for years, and kept her remains, mummified so as not to lose them, in a remote room of the ship, waiting for a suitable place for her burial. Since then Krom raised his son alone, with the help of Yughy, who often entertained the child, making him do small jobs on the ship, teaching him some magical techniques, and playing the funny uncle. The two spent a lot of time together, often not even Krom knew where Lehander was, only to later find him with his uncle.
As the two brothers continued to talk, a yell from the watchtower made them whirl around.
The two brothers ran to the helm, which was being steered by one of their best men, Hagar.
-What happen?- -We are entering a bank of fog, Krom. Looks pretty thick,- -Fog? But how?-
The ship then plunged into fog. All the Missians exited their cabins and made their way to the deck. Lehander reached his father and hugged him tightly, while Krom kept his arm around him. The fog was thick, white, so much so that everyone could feel the steam touching them like a caress, and the salty smell of the sea almost seemed like a sweet aroma. This penetrating fog reminded everyone of the fog of Missa, and caused a sense of nostalgia, serenity, peace in the souls of each of them. Either because of Hagar's caution, or because of the pearly and compact vapor, the mist looked like an infinite Cloud in which the ship was almost swimming. Abruptly, Hagar stopped. Something in the sea was moving. A rumbling was rising from the depths of the sea, and it seemed to get closer and closer. Everyone felt it, and terrified they stood silent, hugging their loved ones. Krom, he looked around, perceived a great, immense force around them. Yughy instead heard only an indecipherable muttering. Then, suddenly, a gasp. The ship began to rock violently, everyone held on to something, the two brothers barely resisted standing. The ship rocked for minutes, until something popped up from the sea: An enormous head, twice the size of the ship, emerged from the water. A gargantuan creature with a reptilian head, mottled and scaly skin, tinged with a brilliant abyssal blue, opened its mouth, emitting a high-pitched dissonant song and displaying thousands of sharp teeth, arranged in a comb, as large as the trees of the ship. His mouth shut, his oil-black eye opened, and he just stood there staring at the ship. Krom-Nav approached the rail, where the eye of the creature scrutinized the ship, while Yughy and Lehander watched the scene amazed together with the rest of the people.
-KROM! COME BACK HERE!- -Keep calm…- -KROM! FOR THE SAKE OF THE ELEMENTS, IT'S NOT A DOLPHIN!- -I said stay calm, Yughy…I feel it…it's powerful…but it's not hostile…- -…HOW SHOULD YOU SAY THAT YOU FEEL IT?-
Krom got as close as possible. He saw the giant pupil turn towards him, narrow and then widen. He feared neither the ship nor Krom. And he didn't seem to want to attack her. Lehander also approached, as if attracted by that magnificent creature. Krom held his son close, and in the process, tried to use his powers to communicate with us. The only thing he heard were strange words in an incomprehensible language.
-Dad...maybe I can understand you...-
Krom wondered for a moment, how could his son already know a language that he didn't know either? But he could not let fear dominate him. careful...and tell us what the beast wants.-
Lehander approached, under the astonished eyes of all. The mighty animal began to make strange noises, but it seemed that somehow, its roaring gurgle and its high-pitched song, resembled words, sentences, a finished speech he was having with the child. Abruptly, he changed, and Lehander turned to face his people.
-…He said his name was Murena. It lives a little further on, in its great lair at the bottom of the sea, near a southward current, and a ditch beyond it. She says that she is one of the guardians of this sea, and that she has a friend with many tentacles, with whom she sometimes fights over the place where she likes to eat. Near her lair is also a large Island. If we ask them please we can live there! There's plenty of room, lots of wood, enough food and water for everyone! We just have to not fish too much and not catch too much. She says she has many other friends on earth, and she doesn't want some of them to get angry.-
The great Moray eel slowly closed and reopened her eye towards the boat, as if it were a sign of assent. Yughy approached his brother.
Krom was torn: On the one hand there was the risk of a trap by that monster, on the other, his people were tired of travelling, tired of seeing only the sea and having to make do to survive. Krom approached his son.
-Ask her…to show us the way.- -YES!-
Lehander with the most innocent smile he could muster looked at his father and uncle, and turned to the Moray Eel. It remained motionless for an interminable minute, then, its head moved forward, towards the direction of the Gheos ship, its long bluish body began to show itself as it swam towards that direction. It seemed endless, but out of the queue, Krom-Nav realized that his brother was right in his greatness. It was ten times the length of the ship, its serpentine body like a moving mountain range, and the long translucent blue fin that ran along its entire body made it even more imposing to the shocked Missians. The Moray Eel swam ahead of the ship, and began to swim straight ahead to show the way out of the mist. Krom, immediately set to work.
And so they did, everyone took their places, the civilians returned, and Krom stood straight in the bow, followed by his son who watched in ecstasy as the gigantic creature guided them towards the unknown. Mist beat against their faces as the ship went at full speed driven by the wind. The creature accelerated more and more as the clouds cleared, they were coming, the salty smell was slowly disappearing. Then, from the top of the watchtower, Yughy screamed together with the other sailor.
Krom still couldn't see it, then the sunlight blinded him, Lehander, and Hagar. As their eyes adjusted, they saw her: A gigantic island loomed before them, a huge layer of land surrounded by cliffs and a sea so blue it looked like fresh water, so clear that you could see all kinds of sea creatures swimming beside the ship, known and unknown. Two huge mountains welcomed them, towering over endless expanses of lush jungles and forests, and surrounded by towering mountain ranges that crowned the entire island. It was their promised land. Their new home
Yughy, he got off, very excited and joined his brother and nephew.
-…Look…WHAT SPLENDOR...- -…Yes…finally…we are home…- -We absolutely have to find a name for her…- -I already have a name for her…- -And what will it be called?- -…it will be our Life from now on…- -Life…you mean..?- -Exactly…GORM…-

2023.06.03 12:25 Wrong_Personality231 I'm not sure if I love my girlfriend back

We have been dating for almost 6 months. It all started when I was sssuper depressed and needed someone get me out of the hole. I have to admit that from the beginning she wasn't exactly my type but I decided to try and see what happens. Right now we are in almost 6 months relationships and I know she loves me unconditionally and very strong (I can see it in her actions and words) but I'm... not sure. I don't feel safe with her, I'm mostly stressed about our meetings and afterwards I'm always exhausted and want to cry. She's such a sweet and loving person and I don't know what to do. The last thing I want is to hurt her.

2023.06.03 12:22 notinpublicpleaze A proper goodbye

After 10yrs It's a lot more than you gave me after 9. I wish I knew how you could believe you love me when you clearly don't even like me. Cant stand to even be around me. Made clear by your optional ghosting. Nobody is fooled. You excuse your stalking for keeping yourself safe. However, Its going to stop. It better. You declared me an enemy. That's on you, no one else. Stop casting blame off with every word. It sickening to read at this point. Literally blaming as you apologize. Uh its not my fault my family was abusive, my ex was , the one after that was, my sister, my sisters ex, my friends from elementary, middle, oh wait didn't make high. And now my most recent. What's the common denominator? You that's who. I'm tired of saving you from yourself. Tired of being on the receiving end and then not being thanked. Just fucking blamed , because I wont fight back. Fuck you for that.
Ya my ex did it to me. It fucking worked. Ill never act like that again. However, if it was just the facebook snooping then we would be talking about the same kind of thing. You know a big clue it's not the same, her and I are still friends. Since you hacked the comp , home network, my phone. literally followed me home. (I have pictures don't try to lie, those blue plates caught my eye. along with your dads favorite brand car, 100s of catfish accounts. I was never so popular till after we meet. That was my clue btw) Your alot worse than I ever was. I needed a tool that worked. I had hoped unlike me you would just fucking stop. Nope guess not , not even with a yr almost gone by after we broke up. Your insane.. Stop, forget me, before , just stop please. Leave me be. Its not healthy and your hurting you , more than your hurting me.
You know what hurts the worst. How much I trusted you and you never did me. I gave you all my passwords. My bank, comp, emails, socials, phone. While I never had so much as your phones. Every single step, you left yourself a way out . Untouched, an emergency hatch where you would get a fresh new start. I gave you that. I deleted my proof. Gave you control of all the paperwork. Even if you think your beating me in some chess game. I promise your not. With all that, if you havent already won. Then your playing not to lose. We both are. Thats the way it is. The more you try the worst its going to get for you. Putting out my family history. Got me out today. You need to stop. You think your untouchable? ok maybe you are but im not going to care. If you fail spectacularly dont expect me to be there. I certainly have more than enough to claim abuse. Im not going to. Its not how I love. Its not how anyone does.
Wanna know how I feel? You owe me. That's how I feel. Your turn to fix it, or pay me back. Im not considering shit til that happens. I got no shoes or technically a car. Thats your fault. lol but true. Maybe an actual apology for the shit you did wrong that I cared about. Not the BS you apologize for or perhaps a spectacular display of loyalty. HA miracles. I would never bet on it. Im out after this. Ill let you bully me off the internet. Just more proof of your problem I guess. Dont think I cant resist. Your getting this because I already wrote you. Wouldnt feel right with out a good bye.
I do love you, I miss you. Your little squeeks. Your crazy hawk call hiccups. The way we could just lay together and do nothing and be happy about it. I will miss that.
Ill miss the way you get on my nerves nagging me, then smile , and I would know its because you cared and smile back.
Ill miss how we never Faught unless outside interference.
Ill miss warming your nose and your face when your cold.
Ill miss the way you would race me to get me coffee or make me food if I got hungry or thirsty enough to go get it on my own.
Ill miss how you worried about my health and my many neck rubs
Ill miss how when ever I took you somewhere everything was new. I loved the way your eyes light up , when its new. Probably a main source of my insecurity right there .
Ill miss how we could be in a room together and not speak a word for hours. A nod or a crinkle of a can would be all you heard. Accompanied by a tiny giggle from the next room.
Ill miss everything really. The highs, the lows, especially the boring days they were the best ones, now they all suck. For a few years there it was pretty magical. You were in therapy then, and you hated it. Could wait to get out. I wish you would have considered it for us or even now, but i remember it didnt go well with your crazy narratives. Which makes so much more since now. No wonder you couldnt keep it all straight in your head. Get lost in this , then have a conversation with people that never saw it. Omg it makes a lot more sense.
All little things I know. I was happy, Im sorry you weren't. Ive known since the day you first left and came back. Said I love you in the morning. I want to be clear. It wasnt the fact that you lied. You lied all the time. Its was the fact that I believed you. I couldnt trust you anymore. I could see through you lies cause you loved me. Your eyes told the truth. Not that time and not ever since. You wont even look me in the eyes.
I know you want the hate so let me explain why I think you cant look me in the eyes.
Fuck you for gaslighting for years pretending not to know who bill billobo is. I didnt think I had to explain what was already explained the night I saw kim on their. I was looking for your profile. Cause I deleted mine, but suprise ,suprise you forgot your old email, think you may have. You dont remember. So I looked since it was the same time frame your 16hrs were missing for months. That wasnt even me who noticed but my parent from you taking advantage of them for childcare.
Fuck you for cheating on me in my face, and not remembering how fred tied into it.
Fuck you for working a 36hr week while being gone for 52 over the course of 4 days. With only 45 min drive with traffic.
Fuck you for saying it was pokemon go. However now that I play it. It would have been understandable but after all this, why should I believe anything you ever said. I no longer believe it was real. All an act. You needed somewhere to stay. So you manipulated the fuck out of me. Making sure your escape hatch was always within reach. Plotting and planning for months. Fuck I found the fucking plans 7months in advance now. Thank you for that. I was slightly distracted but found it nevertheless. That was the same time you made your threat about that word. It makes so much since.
Fuck you for dropping hints on outdated friends circles Go ahead.I hope you contacted them. Your funeral.
Fuck you for rubbing every bit of my past trauma in every chance you got. Then doing in spectacular fashion. In official capacity. Giving me cptsd. Ya cause now I tremor in that building. But it may be more physical as I am having continuing problems with me heart. I guess you can pray for that. Its not looking good anyway. All my surgeries was cancelled due to it.
Fuck you for lying in their. Fuck you for cringe lying . Fuck you for not caring about anybody but yourself no matter who got hurt ( how dare you say you know what love is) Bullshit . You have never shown it. Unless it served you.
Fuck you for not knowing what loyalty is. God help you. Here is some actual advice, take it or leave it. If you show your new friends what your doing or brag about it to them you are a true dumbass. They will not be your friends for long or theyre using you til they discard you. Once they know what you have done. Think of how I and others have reacted to finding out about your mom. I mean fuck first story on that fucking porn account of yours is about you hooking up with the person you grew up withs guy behind her back. I remember when you told me. I was thinking, and this chick wants me to like her? FWB situation I guess. If you remember that is how we started. That is why. That will always be why should anyone else do it to you too. I loved you anyway. God I am a fool. Glad you ended it. Cause I couldn't.
Fuck you for trying to control me by crying wolf. Lying your ass off, and demeaning hundreds of thousands of actual Victims in the process. Ya you care though (sarcasm)
Oh while Im on it, fuck it , this one goes to the peanut gallery. Stop trying to get me to spill some truth you dumbshits. There isnt anything im hiding. I yelled at her. I was extra nasty and demeaning. I was. I could have been nicer. But i wasnt. She could of listened the first time i said something. She didnt. Oh and the best part she had already supposedly forgiving me when I asked when we were still together. Oh didnt tell you that huh? Well no shit. I can only take so much and for the final 6 month she amplified the fuck out of it. Trying to provoke something. Just like now. I still do anything more than yell or wake her up. So here is your wall of text. Its a good bye so im making it long.
Fuck you for doing free porn and trying to pretend it isnt to hurt me and get my attention. You found out which ones. I was watching before your started posting. Im not stupid. Catering to my tastes. Even the fucking tattoo and socks babe. Dont play photoshop. I know it is slightly, but them your birthmarks. I know them well. It was mine for 9 yrs supposedly. ITs insane shit like that , that makes me love and hate you . I hate you for knowing me so well and love you for it. I really love that little body and always will. Im going to miss it. I dont want to replace it. She inevevitably wont be you, but maybe better , maybe worst. I never wanted to try and still dont. But maybe if I get real drunk I can finally do something stupid. Idk. I got stuck up all night thinking about you while your out partying having a good time.
And the biggest Fuck you of it all. Fuck you for not realizing this has never been about you, never about me. Not about us. But you never will and fuck you if you think Ill let you completely give up. Its not an option for you. Then I would never forgive you. Wont if you try to follow through either but , if you just abandon like you did me. Kiss my ass I will go for the win and you will never see me again. That finally is the truth on why I will never hate you. I cant, I wont. Even if you tried to kill me. You are my family. I need no paper to tell me. Not some magical wind, twin flame, fucking astrology or wiccan bullshit. Which god did you pray to the god for wood or the god for trees? (sarcasm)
IF you had just talk to me there would not be so many obstacles between us. So i assume that is how you like it. So I will accommodate. I will run, I will hide. I will be the coward behind enemy lines. With this letter Im done doing for you. Ive got more to say sure. But not to somebody Ill never speak to again. I wont share you with reddit either. Being a porn star is what you want, Obviously you don't want me then. Im moving on since you already crossed that line. I could only assume. See I take particular hurt to it. Lets while we were together you were masturbating with your ex and others online. Then you say you stopped. But boy howdy you jumped right back in doing with everyoone and yet even though when were together and I was across the country and asked. I never got that. Could of used that now. Dont worry. I get it actions louder than words. Your not attracted to me. your more in love with your ex before me and apparently very attracted to your coworkers. You did your job. You devalued me. Made me feel like the dirt you wont even step on. Im worthless to you at least worthless then your ex or them and that was duting the relationship as well as has been made clear. Actions speak louder, Dont you dare respond with words. Im done listening or reading. This is goodbye remember. I would have loved you til the day I died. Forgiving anything all you had to do was stay by my side and talk to me directly. I dont care if others are there or even a counselor. Thats all you ever had to do. So since you couldnt even manage that. I think your actions have spoken. I hope it works out well.
To you and the others this last statement might apply. One day, Mark my words. I promise you. You will WANT to apoligize. Feel you need to even. I wont give you the chance should you try to do as you implied. Proving once and for all your passive aggressive personalities are manipulative as hell and carry no care for those they hurt. Before you dare say I hurt you. No i didnt. You literally acted like you didnt notice for years. I never cheated not even emotionally, despite what you think. In the end I was a dick really. I only talked shit at the end. I left the comp open for you to see it. I was pissed when you said nothing.
Im tired of typing, here this final piece and I think I am done. What was I thinking, What was I feeling? I was think of you. The whole time. Either talking shit or praising you or running old lines from my woman hating days while thinking of you in bed at home and what a shit head I am to be doing that to you. Wondering how she faked it on me with out feeling shitty anyway. Kept thinking it didnt matter I was trying to stop a potentially dangerous obsessive thing because you were at home with munchkies while I was out playing casanova, only to further psych myself out i guess. Kinda just kept reminding myself i was the asshole while you were my sweetheart. Im weird and it was weird, I would not do that again. I would find a different way if I had to do it over again. Its not for me and it did work on me well , and technically you to , because if anything, I got to see how you really feel. If you could literally run at the words of others with so much as confronting me. I dont want that. I just dont. That bond is far to flimsy for me. I still love you. Im sure it will fade. Ill no longer act upon it. Unless recompence is made. I know better .So lets say goodbye. Happy travels to you and I hope you find someone better than me who can love you how you think you should be loved. Sometimes love hurts though, Sometimes we have to be eachothers bad guys. But what you have done is not that. What you have done is lied to have me hurt, have me punished, to incite others upon me, thats not love , no any love I ever heard of. I cant imagine doing that to you, even after all this. I suppose thats what it is huh? You think I actually cheated and actually would try to hurt you. Because its exactly what you would do, what you have done. Im glad I type this, I wanted to close it sweetly poetically, but after typing it. The fact that your probably laughing at me is all to clear. I dont care anymore. Ill probably never directly speak to you again unless you take action to change it. Even then Im not sure how agreeable I would be with it. The stalking better stop. . As of now. I am not yours , so stop trying to possess me. You want me. Fix shit. MAybe contact me. I know you know how annonymously but I wont answer unless you say its you. period. Code word I dont care. Stop harassing me under other handles. Its stupid. I wasnt popular before you, why would i be after. Its you. Its always you. I get pissed everytime you hide it. I made you pay for it by listening to me talk shit about you. SHould of just yelled at me and this shit would of been fixed then. But of course your shady ass, Wasnt gonna put herself at a disadvantage. like I said. good luck making friends. Real ones I mean. Although. I think wooze and sav might be to tell you the truth. Should probably stick with them.
Bye pretty girl , I really wish we could of been friends, I dont like you leaving my life for good. but this was your choice. As bad as a choice as it was.
Im sorry it ended too

2023.06.03 12:10 Puzzleheaded_Tip_132 Can’t sleep without waking up with pain and nausea

Second (successful so far) pregnancy, 13w3d and within the last week and a half I can’t sleep through the night. Waking up to pee is definitely one thing, but I keep waking up 2-3 hours before I need to with horrific gas pain and nausea. Every damn night. By the time it finally subsides, my morning alarm is going off. And it’s definitely safe to say that it makes me lose my mind and start uncontrollably crying. I’ve tried to stay away from snack foods a few hours before going to bed, I’ve been drinking a TON of water and I’ve stayed away from carbonated beverages. Anyone know what else I can do? I keep waking up feeling so overwhelmed with nausea and lately it’s been so hard because I just want to sleep. I’m tired. I want to go back to sleep, but I can’t because my stomach hates me. I hate how gross I feel, I hate that I hate how I feel. I just want to sleep through the night. Really needing some advice or words of encouragement. This pregnancy has been increasingly difficult and I’m beginning to wonder if I can do this one at all. Lately I’m having such a difficult time. I am miserable yet somehow I feel guilty for it. I’m starting to think I’m not cut out for this, I don’t know, I just feel so helpless and alone, even though I know I’m not I just can’t shake these uneasy feelings.

‘14-Day’ LIVE Coaching

The first thing we need to do is to start building your first funnel, right?
“Well, Russell… what kind of funnel should I build?” Great question and the answer is: a lead funnel.
Why A “Lead Funnel”?
Because if you don’t have leads, then you have no one to offer your products or services to.
This is where a lot of people get it backwards and think they need a product first…
But as you’ll soon see, once you have a list of highly-qualified leads, you’ll get a clearer picture on what “types” of products your leads actually WANT… making it 10X easier to sell to them and earn a profit!
And each day, for a full 14 days (2 weeks), you will be given action plans, high-level strategies, and step-by-step guidance so you can hit the ground running to build your first lead funnel!
Here’s a sneak peek on what that’s going to look like…

STEP 1 – Open The Floodgates!

In week one, we’ll show you…
  • How to easily create your FIRST “lead magnet” that ATTRACTS a flood of your dream customers on demand!
  • How to identify your target audience and begin to build a profit-generating list (this is the backbone of ANY online business… and we’ll show you how to do it the right way that generates a horde of hungry buyers that become giant fans of you!)
  • How to build and launch a HIGH-CONVERTING email capture funnel (SO EXCITING!!)… including the right words to say on each step that practically hypnotizes even the coldest leads to sign up to your list!

STEP 2 – Build The Relationship!

Now that you have leads coming into your funnel, it’s essential that you quickly build a relationship with those leads.
In week two, we’ll show you…
  • How to write and set up the SIX CRITICAL (and super simple) auto-responder emails that will help establish trust, make a connection, and build a relationship with your leads…So they will be excited to buy from you… and continue to buy from you in the future!(Pssst… and don’t worry if you’ve NEVER written a marketing email before. We’ll show you the dead-easy way to write emails that people love to read and buy from… and it’ll feel as if you’re chatting with a close friend!)
  • How to collect MORE leads without paid ads! That’s right, you don’t need to spend money initially to get leads.We’ll reveal our strategies that you can use to start building ginormous lists of dream customers without spending a SINGLE DIME on paid ads!(THIS is where it all comes together… and you begin to experience your very own thriving online business right before your eyes!!)
  • ​BONUS Training! We’ll go in-depth and show you the next steps, including when to send emails… what to say in each email (without sounding “sales-y”)…How to survey your lists and find out what they WANT… and what offers to sell to your list, even if you don’t have a product or service as yet!

2023.06.03 11:53 KingofSpain0 Deuteronomy 31

Deuteronomy 31:1-30
Then Moses went out and spoke these words to all Israel: 2 “I am now a hundred and twenty years old and I am no longer able to lead you. The Lord has said to me, ‘You shall not cross the Jordan.’ 3 The Lord your God himself will cross over ahead of you. He will destroy these nations before you, and you will take possession of their land. Joshua also will cross over ahead of you, as the Lord said. 4 And the Lord will do to them what he did to Sihon and Og, the kings of the Amorites, whom he destroyed along with their land. 5 The Lord will deliver them to you, and you must do to them all that I have commanded you. 6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
7 Then Moses summoned Joshua and said to him in the presence of all Israel, “Be strong and courageous, for you must go with this people into the land that the Lord swore to their ancestors to give them, and you must divide it among them as their inheritance. 8 The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

9 So Moses wrote down this law and gave it to the Levitical priests, who carried the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and to all the elders of Israel. 10 Then Moses commanded them: “At the end of every seven years, in the year for canceling debts, during the Festival of Tabernacles, 11 when all Israel comes to appear before the Lord your God at the place he will choose, you shall read this law before them in their hearing. 12 Assemble the people—men, women and children, and the foreigners residing in your towns—so they can listen and learn to fear the Lord your God and follow carefully all the words of this law. 13 Their children, who do not know this law, must hear it and learn to fear the Lord your God as long as you live in the land you are crossing the Jordan to possess.”

14 The Lord said to Moses, “Now the day of your death is near. Call Joshua and present yourselves at the tent of meeting, where I will commission him.” So Moses and Joshua came and presented themselves at the tent of meeting.
15 Then the Lord appeared at the tent in a pillar of cloud, and the cloud stood over the entrance to the tent. 16 And the Lord said to Moses: “You are going to rest with your ancestors, and these people will soon prostitute themselves to the foreign gods of the land they are entering. They will forsake me and break the covenant I made with them. 17 And in that day I will become angry with them and forsake them; I will hide my face from them, and they will be destroyed. Many disasters and calamities will come on them, and in that day they will ask, ‘Have not these disasters come on us because our God is not with us?’ 18 And I will certainly hide my face in that day because of all their wickedness in turning to other gods.
19 “Now write down this song and teach it to the Israelites and have them sing it, so that it may be a witness for me against them. 20 When I have brought them into the land flowing with milk and honey, the land I promised on oath to their ancestors, and when they eat their fill and thrive, they will turn to other gods and worship them, rejecting me and breaking my covenant. 21 And when many disasters and calamities come on them, this song will testify against them, because it will not be forgotten by their descendants. I know what they are disposed to do, even before I bring them into the land I promised them on oath.” 22 So Moses wrote down this song that day and taught it to the Israelites.
23 The Lord gave this command to Joshua son of Nun: “Be strong and courageous, for you will bring the Israelites into the land I promised them on oath, and I myself will be with you.”
24 After Moses finished writing in a book the words of this law from beginning to end, 25 he gave this command to the Levites who carried the ark of the covenant of the Lord: 26 “Take this Book of the Law and place it beside the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God. There it will remain as a witness against you. 27 For I know how rebellious and stiff-necked you are. If you have been rebellious against the Lord while I am still alive and with you, how much more will you rebel after I die! 28 Assemble before me all the elders of your tribes and all your officials, so that I can speak these words in their hearing and call the heavens and the earth to testify against them. 29 For I know that after my death you are sure to become utterly corrupt and to turn from the way I have commanded you. In days to come, disaster will fall on you because you will do evil in the sight of the Lord and arouse his anger by what your hands have made.”

30 And Moses recited the words of this song from beginning to end in the hearing of the whole assembly of Israel:

2023.06.03 11:50 No_Bee4842 AITA for saying I'd call animal control on my roommate?

Preface this was a year ago but it kinda still eats me up inside. Throwaway account because i don't know if people within the story read this sub.
A close friend (22f) and I (22) had moved into an apartment together with the girlfriend (19f) of one of our friends. We'd figured that since my friend and I didn't want to live in the dorms anymore, and our friends girlfriend, who we'll call Hannah, was on rocky terms with her parents that we could get an apartment together and that we'd all save money. Going into it, Hannah said she had an emotional support animal. My friend who we'll call Rachel, and I were ok with that since Hannah said she could get the paperwork when the complex asked for it.
And for the first six months we were living there the management didn't seem to have any problems with us. But in June we got a letter from management that basically said that since we didn't have documentation for the ESA, the animal would have to be removed. Both Rachel and Hannah were working full time, and I was waiting on HR. I told Hannah when she got back from work about the letter, how we had 10 days to get the animal out, she said that she'd take it over to her parents house. When 10 days passed, we got a note under the door stating that management would be entering our apartment in 24 hrs to make sure the animal had been removed, or we would be evicted. I was the only one home. The animal was still there.
I panicked. Rachel and I did not have anywhere else to go if we got evicted. I tried to get in contact with Hannah and her boyfriend but neither would answer me. Unable to remove the animal on my own due to health issues at the time, I called animal control to ask if they would accept the animal, since it was a chicken and I wasn't sure they would. They said that they could pick it up as a surrender, so that Hannah could retrieve it from them again after the fact. I felt that this was the most humane solution if Hannah wasn't going to take action herself, since a few friends and family members recommended that I cook the chicken. It had been hours without any response. I texted Hannah again informing her that if she didn't remove her animal from the apartment by ten the next morning, then I'd call animal control.
Only then did she respond to me, saying that I was threatening her, I had done nothing for the past ten days, and that she had wanted more time with her pet (her words). She did finally move her animal out when she returned home and we thankfully weren't evicted. I apologized and I thought that we had eventually come to an understanding a week or so after the event, though things were never really the same between us and I ended up moving out at the end of the summer due to other events unrelated (but escalated due to) this situation. Was I disrespectful and an asshole for threatening her?

2023.06.03 11:48 Terestar13 I am divorcing my husband that I depend on.

TW: rape, cheating, mental health, cancer
So, as the title says I am planning to divorce my husband, even though I am dependent on him. There's a lot to this so I'd appreciate if you could read until the end
I (23M) have a lot of problems when it comes to mental health, I am autistic and bipolar and not only that but I suffer physically too as I struggle walking sometimes due to a motocross accident from five years which I can still feel to this day and also long term covid. I find stuff such as walking for just 20 minutes extremely exhausting. Not only that but I have recently had a cancer diagnosis. I had an inkling of it already but it's only recently been diagnosed.
Given all those issues, my husband (also 23M) has been there to help me with them, ever since we first met in the 11th grade.
But then, about a month ago we had a trip to England together (we're from Canada) and in short, he basically made me have sex with him even when I refused and even though he knows full well I have strong sex repulsion. He had been asking me to "try" it for a while but no amount of saying no got him to leave it alone. I only agreed because I wanted it to stop.
It doesn't even end there as not long after that a friend of mine showed me screenshots of a discord conversation where he basically confessed to cheating on me. According to him, I am very bad with sex and that I am ignorant when it comes to a lot of terms related to sex. I know they're true but it hurts so much more hearing it from the guy who I thought loved me despite my issues. When I asked him about it, all he could do was lie to me.
I have told him that I forgive him, but I am coming to the realization that I truly don't. I only chose to forgave him because it's easier than alternatives. But then I constantly get berated by my friends for staying when he obviously doesn't care for me anymore, and I am slowly beginning to realize that I can't live my life like this anymore.
Last night I entered a bit of a breaking point where it felt like my own friends gave up on me, it's what's making me realize that I am deluded and I need to leave...but I am confused on how to do so given all the issues I have. But I decided to contact my Grandmother last night about everything and she has invited me to go and stay with her for a while. So here I am with a handful of stuff with me as I am trying to navigate a really hard moment in my life but I have a little bit of faith it'll improve, as my Grandmother said she will work with me to find a divorce lawyer and see if there's any form of disability payment I can receive, since I am out of work right now given my diagnosis. She also agreed to help me with making sure I get to hospital appointments safe and sound. I really miss him right now but hopefully I can get over that eventually.

2023.06.03 11:46 Jaisdreval he washed my hair and it broke me

last sunday i finally saw the guy i was going out with again face to face after 6 months. we hung out at my place and he dyed my hair. he put a towel around my shoulders while standing in front of me. he was so close and my face was red.
he did a great job and was so gentle the whole time, but what really stuck with me is when he washed out the dye. I've never been treated so gently and lovingly. he asked me to cover my face, so it wouldn't get stained. so i stood there, hunched over my bathroom sink with the boy i love gently caressing my temples and neck as if i was the most precious thing on earth.
I've experienced emotional neglect and abandonment far too many times. I'm very insecure about my face when my hair is wet and slicked back and i feared he'd see what i see and leave me but he wouldn't until he had to. he's so present. it broke me in the best way possible because it was necessary for me to begin healing these wounds.
we gave each other letters to open once we were apart again. they were painfully romantic and included asking the other out, so of course we said yes. this was not at all coordinated whatsoever. we're boyfriends! i still can't believe it but we are. this is a first for both of us and we couldn't be happier. today we're going to museums all night long and then he's sleeping over. I'm happy.

2023.06.03 11:46 Koralani My (F27) RSD is kicking my ass like never before and my boyfriend (M28) completely shuts down if I'm even slightly irritated. How to navigate this dynamic? *Long post*

Hi, I've been thinking about writing this post for a long time now. At this point I have nowhere else to turn, so here I am asking for your advice.
For context. Me (F27), my partner (F28) and my daughter from previous marriage (F4) are living abroad. Our therapy options are limited to say the least, because of the language barrier.
About me: I have ADHD. I was diagnosed in January and take medication for it. The meds help with most of the symptoms, but the worst one for my relationship is still very much there. I have self esteem issues (commonly called daddy issues, I always felt alone and abandoned, last priority for everyone in my life) and also RSD, so I am extremely sensitive and vulnerable when it comes to feeling rejected. Also, no one in my life ever apologized or took any accountability for hurting me. So the feelings of injustice and hurt have festered for a long time. The reason can be the smallest thing, but it hurts like being backstabbed everytime.
About my boyfriend: He's always had anxiety problems. He's the kind of guy who always criticises himself, even for things that are not his fault. He's really conflicted, because deep inside, he was this introverted, sensitive child, who always envied the "real men" who seemed tough for him, and he always hated himself for not being able to be like them. Always felt less than because of that, and in previous relationships he was also mocked because of it. Let me say that his sensitivity and emotional intelligence was the very thing that made me fall for him and I love that about him immensely.
When I met my boyfriend, everything was amazing, of course. He is very caring, loving and was the first person to accept me and love me unconditionally. He gave me all the affection I always craved. Most importantly, if he hurt my feelings in any way, he always apologized, which was also something I've been waiting my entire life for. I was over the moon.
But a couple of months ago it turned out my boyfriend had lied about himself. He has a lot of issues that he didn't tell me about at the beginning. These issues were actually the reason for this. He has terrible self esteem too, he was sure that if he told me, i would've never given him a chance. And after some over a year of our relationship, the honeymoon phase being over, my ADHD starting to really shine through, everything kind of shifted. I got back on my feet, got my diagnosis and my meds and I'm much better now. But the problem is, he isn't.
He became very avoidant and not in the way you would think. He just shuts down. Whenever there is anything wrong with me, it can be regular day to day life frustration, he just runs away, literally avoids me in our house, he's silent, like completely silent. I asked him for support many times in those situations, cause I know his hug and some kind words would calm me down really quickly, but he's just silent, blaming himself for everything and being unable to say a word. We talked many times about it, he tells me that for him it feels like he's paralyzed, like his voice just gets stuck in his throat. It gets worse if he does something wrong and is aware that I'm frustrated because of his behavior.
These days I try to be very calm and not blaming him when I'm frustrated, I know my RSD exaggerates my feelings and reactions. But at the beginning of these problems, I was more direct, more... angry when approaching him and if I pushed him to reply, at some point he would snap and start yelling, usually along the lines of "I can't do ANYTHING right, I'm never good enough for you, I did this and that so you can't feel this way" it's like a mixture of self shaming, defensiveness and desperation. Even when I tell him what exactly he can do in these situations (like hug me, tell me something nice, with examples) he just doesn't know what he's "supposed to" do. He's just stuck in his head overthinking all the possible outcomes and consequences of what he might say and ends up saying nothing. It's not a knowledge thing. When you love someone, you have empathy and you know your partner, it comes naturally, as it did to him for a long time before. Now it feels like he forgot it all.
I told him that I could see he's not coming from a place of love or compassion anymore, now it's just sheer panic, that's why he finds himself unable to do or say anything, he is aware of that, but it's stronger than him. He always apologizes later, when he thinks everything through without me being there (usually when he's at work).
I tried reassuring him and showing him that it's okay if you hurt someone's feelings, that's normal, it happens, as long as it wasn't intentional and you take accountability. I reasurred him many times that it won't make me break up with him or something.
I mentioned at the beginning that if my boyfriend knows I'm frustrated with him, it makes it easier for him to shut down. Recently he started to shut down when I get frustrated/pissed at literally ANYTHING. It can be something completely unrelated to our relationship, something "from the outside". He just gets quiet and leaves the room.
A couple of times I even tried begging for his help (before he went silent) and support, a hug or something and right when I said it, he went silent again.
I read articles about this dynamic of one person shutting down and the other getting frustrated and feeling worthless because of it. I tried all the methods. It just seems like it doesn't matter how gently I approach, I tried using "I" statements, insted of "you" statements, but it doesn't make a difference, he gets the same conclusion anyway and still shuts down. I also tried to offer him texting as a solution, writing me a message, so it's less overwhelming, but it also doesn't work. He shuts down completely. I could literally ask him if he wants to break up and he wouldn't reply.
I know it's not his fault, but it's just so exhausting for me. He doesn't look for solutions, compromise or any systems that might help us communicate. I have to be the one to do all emotional work here, if I don't, the problems just don't get resolved I guess. I tried to give him as much time as he needs, but the longest I managed to wait was two days. For me it was two days of agony, the fact that we live together does not help. My RSD is kicking my ass recently and I get little to none reassurance or simple words of affirmation from him. I feel worthless and unappreciated most of the time. Also, because he's so fragile recently, I have this pressure to control my behaviour, to stay 200% composed and calm. It's my responsibility now to not get even a little bit irritated, I can't stop thinking that if I do, if I slip, I'll be "punished" by his silence. If I calmly and gently start that conversation, he just shuts down again, making me feel even worse and also very very alone.
I tried to fight and hide my hurt feelings, push them down, but unfortunately, as for many others with ADHD, it's impossible, I'm an open book whether I want it or not. I also tried to rationalize, remind myself that it's not his fault, that he's having mental health issues that I need to support him with, but it only works with the smallest "offences", especially now, since after those last months of this issue going on and escalating, my RSD doesn't accept any justifications anymore. I feel like I'm too hurt "long-term" at this point to be the rock that he needs.
I feel like I'm walking on eggshells, I'm also a gentle parent to my daughter and IT IS HARD. It's sometimes impossible to stay calm when my kid also pushes my buttons and I know it's my responsibility as an adult to stay collected. I feel like our entire family's wellbeing is solely on my shoulders.
I told about all of this to my boyfriend, he gets as much time as he needs to think everything through and when we reapproach, he seems to understand everything and promises to try to communicate better, but it's only until the next time (and how fast this next time is going to be, is my responsibility).
Are there any other methods to get him to talk? He has a psychiatrist, but we're still looking for the right meds. Right now him getting better is my only hope, otherwise I feel like this dynamic is going to drain me completely.
Oh, and sorry for the longest post 😅

2023.06.03 11:38 Mimii483 Learning Egyptian Arabic

Salamo 3aleeko!
I recently started (or tried to) learning Egyptian Arabic but truth be said I'm struggling. A lot. I'm a person that usually has no problem in learning new things, like languages. I originally speak Portuguese, but I also know English, Spanish, Italian and a fair amount of French. But most of these are Latin based (like my mother tongue) except the English.
I have watched countless youtube videos and they help learning words and sentences but I feel like this isnt gonna make me learn the correct way... Even the writting (in Arabic ofc) is so hard for me because I wrote with a-z alphabet letters my whole life and this to me is like i have to make a drawing of my words (I'm sorry if I'm making a weird comparison here I don't mean it in a wrong way it's just how it feels to me)... Also the fact that its written and read from right to left. I know you guys also write in english (ezzayak, 3amel eih, shokran etc) but I would really like to learn the Arabic alphabet because I find it beautiful.
This being said, does anyone have tips to make it easier for me or a better way to learn? Should I start with the speaking or reading/writting? Direct to conversational phrases or do i start with verbs and all that?
Thank you so much!

2023.06.03 11:38 Rikutopas Any advice on weight management when one cat is much chonkier than the other?

Any advice on weight management when one cat is much chonkier than the other?
I have two cats, two years old, sisters, Abby and Kaci. When they first came here at five months old, Abby was bigger, whereas Kaci was smaller with a more rounded tummy. From the very beginning, Kaci is more food motivated, she loves wet food, she eats her portion very quickly and then she goes to steal Abby's portion. Abby usually just walks away when Kaci comes to her dish, but even if I prevent Kaci from going over there, Abby will often walk away from her dish before it is empty. Abby just eats enough to not feel hungry.
They also get dry food to graze on during the day. Neither of them are particularly greedy about the dry food, they snack a little and walk away.
Abby does prefer real meat, on the odd occasion I give them cold chicken breast she is much more interested than Kaci.
I'm looking for advice on what you do when you have one cat who needs to eat less and one cat who needs to eat more, and it's not practical to keep them separated all day, which is how long I'd need to keep them separated to avoid Kaci eating Abby's leftovers.
For the record, the vet isn't worried (yet) about their weight. She says Abby is a healthy weight, and that Kaci is a bit overweight but normal for an indoor cat. They're about a 2 and a 5 on the chonk scale someone posted recently. I'm just looking for ways to manage it going forward so Kaci doesn't get seriously overweight and I have to put her on a diet, which will be a pain since I'll need to keep Abby well fed.
They are moderately active, they chase one another and they have toys, I play with them, but they are both a lot less active than the crazy kitten days.

2023.06.03 11:38 VIPLightning I (28M) wasted my time and money on Ukrainian gf (32F) overseas.

First time poster on this subreddit. So if I make any mistakes or needs clarification, please let me know. I could use the support as I'm currently going through cognitive dissonance. I feel mentally drained and weak as I'm also recovering from a serious work injury on my left hand.
Also little did I know that such a beautiful woman like herself with sweetness could eventually turn into a completely different person. I suppose this is where she would be the reason why I give up on online relationships overall.
If you want to find out the real problems, **skip all the boring messages to paragraph 6.
To start off where I met this woman, I met her from a dating site last year on April 11th. I initiated the conversation with her as she had a friend here who helped with the translation. "Yayyy me," I thought thinking I was the lucky guy. Despite the huge language barrier, we managed to hit it off by using a legit site that translates our words privately by real professionals. And yes it gets expensive when it's $1.04 per 100 characters. But that didn't matter to me. Her happiness and positive emotions was what mattered to me. I admired the pictures of her even if she wasn't smiling. But her half-smile in these pictures lit her inner glow. We've tried using AI translator and it has caused confusion due to the wordings and grammar. Her intention was to come to the United States and settle in Chicago before be together and for our meeting in real life to be special. Alright that was a huge plus.
Her not being a social media person, we did not video chat or phone call to each other because we both agreed that the first meeting in real life would then not be the same. However we did record videos of ourselves, shared cool collection of gifs, and wished happy holidays. As I was learning her language I offered her to call me if she wanted emotional support because of the current issues she's experiencing in real situation. But of course she said she'd let me know. First few months I began to struggle to refill the money in the website as I got to take care of bills. I told her I needed one week to refill and my messages would be short. She said she understood my situation and said no matter how short sized the letters are as long as there is deep emotional connections.
**Fast forward to where I noticed the bad apples arise. It all started after arriving in the hospital due to a serious work injury on my left hand. I told her what happened to me. I told her the day I was going for my surgery and she sent me sad emojis on the site. The next day after my hand surgery and high on Anesthesia, I log into the site and she sends me this seemingly superficial message
Her: Of course, I'm glad we met a year ago, although to tell you the truth, I think our relationship is going through bad times at the moment, but I believe things will change for much better when we meet.
Me: I'm glad that we met a year ago too. I hope I understand what you're saying about our relationship. Although it would be nice if I knew why you think it's going through bad times at this moment.
I ended up bawling alone in the hospital bed as my self-confidence dwindled. Also not once did she call me. My family members that visited me asked if she called me. I replied "no" to that and they all were wondering what she is doing. Then I questioned myself if this is normal. And I gave the benefit of the doubt. Next day she replies:
I'm certainly aware of your financial problems, and I'm well aware of that. But I still attribute these problems not only to the size of the letters, but to depth and understanding in general.
Later as time progresses and discharged from the hospital on May 11th. I'm able to go home while still in recovery. 1 in a half weeks passes by. I login to send her a message and I ask her for clarification on what she meant by the message I quoted above. She flat out denied it by saying
In fact, I wasn't saying at the time that our relationship was going through hard times. I was saying it wasn't the best of times
I gave into what she said by thinking that there was an occasional translation problem on the site. Another week passes by where she sends me a selfie with no smile. I complimented her beauty and wished she smiled. Admittedly It was not the best choice of words I made because of how offended she was. So I apologized and made up to her and poured my heart out to her. This is what I said:
Honey, listen. There's something I need to say because realized I made a mistake. I wish to take everything back I said. I'm terribly sorry for the negativity I made about your picture as it was never meant to bring you down. I'll take the fall on that. I reread my letter and didn't add what I wanted to say. I wished that you smiled because when you do, it adds more glow to your face and it makes my heart flutter. Your smile also serves as a reminder in why I find you the best woman in my life. Like coffee, when I get up in the morning, I always look forward to starting my morning with you. And when the cup is empty, I miss you just like when we've exchanged messages telling each other how we truly felt as a distraction from your bad days. I understand and know that you are trying to look better with permanent crowns in which I'm really excited for you. I hope that the procedure all goes well. But know this, you don't need to have teeth when you smile. You can smile with cheek. But when you smile I hope that it's out of pure affection and that it's because you feel loved by this man. I know that you are upset with me and it's okay to vent it out with me if it helps you. I accept that things won't get better quick. However my desire for you to know that the only woman I've ever been in love with is with you since the beginning.
But then when she responded, the messages became superficial and not genuine. She said
I understand you about this situation, it's not an issue for me anymore and I'm just trying to move on. All I meant was that if I sent a picture without a smile, that doesn't mean I have to smile and you have to accept such a picture as it is. And it's the same if you send something or say something. Although you can, again, not accept it, that's your right. And there is no need to change my mind to start thinking otherwise. I thank you for your kind words anyway and it brings me joy. And your compliments are important to me
At this point, it really made me upset because I felt this whole time that she just didn't love me for who I am. It took me 1 day before gathering my thoughts before breaking it off. On May 31st, I send her a very lengthy message about how all I felt as mentioned in this post especially when she never called me in the hospital. I asked where she had been all this time, called out on her lie, etc.
After confronting her, I could tell she was very upset and there was some sincerity. But then she denied everything she did and victimizing herself and also acted like she had no clue. Not only that but after confronting again and telling her that I would no longer refill the money for the translation services, she went psycho on me and said that I declared war on her messages. She mocked me by saying "Oh, poor you" after telling her for the past 2 months that I felt no sense of love. Then labeled me a narcissist, a man who shows love, kindness, simplicity behind a mask in disguise. I felt this whole time she never knew who I was. In past abusive relationships, I've always questioned my own sanity. But she cut communication completely from me making me unable to write to her.
TL;DR The long distance relationship lasted for a full year. On May 31st I broke up with my Ukrainian gf and lost faith in the relationship because I felt she downplayed the situation after finding out I was in the hospital and lack of empathy and love. Need support

2023.06.03 11:30 LiseEclaire [Leveling up the World] - Academy Arc - Chapter 759

Out there - Patreon (for all those curious or wanting to support :))
At the Beginning
Adventure Arc - Arc 2
Wilderness Arc - Arc 3
Academy Arc - Arc 4
Previously on Leveling up the World…
This is somewhat nostalgic, the armadil shield said.
“Walking through copyette ruins?” Dallion’s opinion differed. “Hardly.”
You patched up things with Eury here, I remember.
The comment made Dallion slow his pace. That was indeed true. The first time their relationship had been on the rocks, searching the ruins had helped patch things up. It also helped that the entire city was under threat of destruction.
“There’s nothing to patch up,” he said adamantly.
Right. It’s the world that’s keeping you apart.
Reaching the staircase to the city above, Dallion hastened his pace. Half a dozen cleric guards stood at the higher levels, making sure no one without permission went up or down. Aware of the mage’s authority, they quickly stepped back, letting him pass. Some of them mumbled the obligatory “initiate”—a title Dallion cared little about.
A second half dozen was placed in the arena corridor, just beyond the stairwell. Feeling in a good mood after his magic level up, Dallion was about to let them know that he was done, when he spotted something that made him stop. At the end of the corridor, surrounded by his ever-present fury bodyguards, stood the general.
Damn it! Dallion said to himself. He had hoped that he’d manage to leave the city without having to talk to the snobbish snake. If there was someone he wanted to avoid at all costs, that was it.
“What a pleasant surprise to find you here, Dal,” the general said with his superior smile. Dallion’s rank in society might have increased since the last time the two had spoken, but it didn’t matter. He still had a debt to pay, and if there was one thing the general was good at, it was collecting. “Or should I say mage Dallion?”
“Nice to see you too, General.” Dallion remained calm. “I was considering seeing you,” he lied.
For a moment, he considered whether to blow him off completely. Being a mage, he had the authority to do so. Sadly, in the short turn, that would create more trouble than it was worth.
“Delightful. I’d invite you to my usual room, but it’s being redecorated.” The general tapped his chin with a finger. “I decided to go with something a lot more imperial in mind.”
“I see.”
“On the other hand, the arena field is empty right now. Maybe we could have a brief talk there?”
It was made to look like an amicable invitation, but there wasn’t a person in the corridor who couldn’t tell it was a threat.
The countess was moved out of the city, and yet this squirmy toad remains behind? Dallion grumbled internally. Worse than a cockroach.
Leaving his furies behind, the general went along the halls and corridors to the arena field. Despite it and the stands being meticulously well kept, a sense of emptiness emanated from everywhere. There were times when it was filled with dozens of challengers and enough crowds to fill a medium-sized town. Dallion had seen it from both sides of the fence: he had taken part in the tournament as well as observed it from afar.
“Feels strange, doesn’t it?” The general looked around. “If there was one thing about the countess that everyone will miss, it’s the Nerosal Festival. That was an event to remember. Even the northern provinces were envious, even if they’d never admit it. Tell me, is the Academy still holding its tournament?”
“Ah, a shame. I was told that they, too, were rather magnificent. I’ve seen echo recreations, of course, but it could never beat the real thing.”
Dallion remained silent, patiently waiting.
“In a way, you can say that everything started here,” the general continued. “If a member of the imperial family hadn’t died that day, none of the following calamities would have taken place.”
“Doubtful.” Dallion tried his best not to smirk. “Another excuse would have turned up.”
“Oh, that’s definitely true. With the toys Adzorg had been playing, it was inevitable that something would follow. Who knows, if he had been just a bit luckier, the city might have been destroyed well before the Star had the chance to drag it into the wilderness. Makes you think, doesn’t it?”
“What do you want?” Dallion pressed. “I don’t have time for your usual performance.”
“My, my.” The general’s smile widened. “I guess it’s true that magic makes one arrogant. But you’re right. Both of us are busy people, so I’ll get straight to the point.” He paused for a few moments. “I think I can help you.”
Using that line already? Each time the snob had used it, Dallion had ended up worse off.
“Everyone knows you’re hunting Adzorg.”
“Not hunting,” Dallion corrected. “And I expect you to know where he is?”
“I haven’t the slightest idea. The man has managed to elude the Academy and the Order’s best. There’s no way I could find him. However, I can help you find the thing he seeks.”
“Sounds too good to be true.”
“Everyone makes mistakes, even former archmages.” The general’s tone shifted. “In this case, the mistake was made years ago. The old man had grown impatient and came to me asking for a specific item. It was believed to be difficult to find and impossible to get. In fact, I was planning to use you to find it for me. It was quite unfortunate that some of my other associates failed to do their part.”
“Let me guess—they ran off with the item in question.”
“Didn’t even find it. Needless to say that our business relations came to an end. Anyway, the important thing is that Adzorg never got the piece.”
“And you know where it is.” Dallion crossed his hands. “What makes you sure that he hasn’t found it by now?”
The response made Dallion arch an eyebrow.
“I’ve narrowed down its location, but there’s no guarantee that he hadn’t found it. The reason I’m assuming he hasn’t is because the world is still here.”
“So, you have nothing to offer?”
“You seem to be confused, mage. It’s you who owe me. The debt you have is guaranteed by your Moon vow. I’ve been generous enough leaving you run around, but even my patience has its limit.”
Dallion would hardly call what he’d been doing “running around.” Unfortunately, he was the one with the debt.
Confident he had made his point, the general took out a small scroll from beneath his shirt and handed it to Dallion. Unrolling it revealed the picture of a very peculiar and well-crafted gear wheel. More precisely, it was a stack of gear wheels arranged like a cone.
“The item is said to be the size of a large shield,” the general said. “It’s made of a combination of sea iron, sun gold, and moon platinum. The materials alone will make every hunter want to have it. According to Adzorg, it’s hidden in a large clay or stone statue. Find it first and you’ll find your ex-mage.”
“Thanks,” Dallion grumbled.
“And just to be sure, there are no misunderstandings. I want the item.”
“You’re thinking of taking on the Order? Now I’m impressed.”
“Don’t act stupid, it doesn’t become you. The item is useless on its own. Owning a piece of something that could enslave all humanity, though… Now, that’s priceless. Bring me my prize and your debt is paid.” The man turned around. “What you do with the old man isn’t my business.”
Dallion folded the scroll and added it to the pile of things he was carrying. This was exactly the sort of “help” he had expected. The only positive thing was that he could be fairly sure that Adzorg had at least one piece missing.
“Oh, one last thing,” the general said over his shoulder. “Some of my associates were convinced that the statue is located in the dwarf kingdom of Alor, or at least it had been before the poison plague broke out.”
The kingdom of Alor. From what Dallion could remember, that was a small kingdom relatively close to the empire’s northwest province. The issue was that it was also close to the Azure federation.
“I wish you the best of luck.” The snob waved.
Mentally Dallion clenched his fists. A single spell would be enough to reduce the general to cinders. And yet the Moon vow wouldn’t allow it.
I told you to avoid the arena, the armadil shield said.
“Not now, shield.” Dallion hissed, then cast a flight spell. Even with all the positives he had achieved in the last hour, the conversation with the general left a bitter aftertaste in his mouth. How could someone be so arrogant to gamble with the fate of cities? He had practice, that was for certain, constantly relying on someone else taking one for the team and dealing with the consequences of his actions.
The flight to the Gremlin’s Timepiece lasted less than a minute. As he approached, Dallion instantly spotted several air currents coming from the inn. Living under the countess had taught Diroh to be careful. That was good.
No longer bothering to remain incognito, Dallion flew directly to the inn door and stepped inside. He expected a crowd to start forming, but the place was remarkably empty. The only people present were Hannah and Diroh. Even Pan had remained in the kitchen, preferring not to get involved.
“Take everything you want to bring along,” Dallion said unceremoniously. “We’re leaving.”
The fury stood up to protest, when Hannah gave her a sign not to.
“Go, Di,” she said in a calm voice. “Only the things you’ll miss.”
“You’re letting him take me? Why? I thought—”
“Just do it, Di. He might be a jackass, but he’s right—people have already noticed and until we get a strong lord mayor, you’ll be safer with Dal than with someone else.”
A bouquet of emotions emanated from Diroh. There was a lot of disapproval, anger, and rebellion, of course, but also a bit of eagerness and joy as well subtly hidden. Walking deliberately slowly, she made her way to her room. Dallion and Hannah kept looking at each other, not saying a word the entire time the fury was there. Once gone, the innkeeper drew a dagger from beneath the counter and slashed all the air-currents Diroh had “forgotten” behind.
“If something happens to her…” the woman began.
“I won’t be alive to defend myself if it does,” Dallion finished for her. “Besides, she’s learned a trick or two.”
“She only had a year. You had five.”
Had it been five already? Dallion had lost track.
“I’ll make her my apprentice,” he said. “Once she has the title, no one will be able to harm her.”
“Other than all the mages that joined the other sides.” Hannah returned the dagger to its place. “Do you have enough authority? She’s not a full mage.”
“She’s close enough. Besides, I’m owed a few favors. She’ll become my apprentice, and with a bit of help from the Academy, a lot more.”
For several long seconds, Hannah kept on glaring straight into his eyes, then shook her head.
“I never thought you'd turn into this.”
“That’s not true. You knew it from the moment you saw me.” Dallion glanced briefly at the kitchen door. “I bet you knew how all of us would turn out. Is that part of your curse?”
“Heh.” The woman grabbed a bottle from the nearby shelf, then poured herself a glass. “My curse.” She gulped it down in one go. “They say that every awakened who lives in Nerosal but isn’t born there has a curse. Mine was to help people I knew would move on. Eury, Jiroh, you…”
“You still have Pan.”
“Only because his curse is even worse than mine. I didn’t expect you to chase after Captain Adzorg like a pup of the Academy, but I knew you’d hurt me.” She filled her glass once more and drank it. “And still, you’re the safest bet that girl has. Pan doesn’t think so, neither does March, but they don’t know you as well as I do.”
“I bet you say that to every otherworlder.”
“When I look at you, I see a hurricane of change. You’ll hurt a lot, more than you have hurt already. You’ll scar the world itself.”
“In that case, why put Di under my care?” Dallion felt a slight chill at the back of his neck.
“Because as long as she’s with you, she’ll be in the eye of the hurricane.”

2023.06.03 11:28 Rainbow6SiegeCreator What If Legends and Canon Merged? Part 13: Republic Anew

5 years had past since the formation of the New Republic and the SkywalkeKenobi Academy, a new Squadron had been formed with the veteran General Hera Syndulla leading the very vessel they had become a part of. This group was known as the New Republic Rangers. This force had composed of ground troops, pilots, and others with exceptional skills. Leading this group in Syndylla's absence were Carson Teva, and Cara Dune. Hera trusted this team not only because of their reputations, but also due to her personal accounts of their advisor, Zeb Orrelios.
When the Jedi had arrived, the new Republic soldiers stood at attention in respect for the Grandmaster who saved the galaxy from the Imperial regime. Luke reunited with his old friend Wedge Antilles, X2 reunited with Grey Squadron and his wife Shara, Ezra reunited with Zeb and met the new team as well as Hera, who embraced him along with the still-so-devious astromech droid Chopper. The 3 Ghost crew members almost teared up when they found out Ezra and Sabine married.
Hera: [Through tears of joy] Ezra, Sabine, I'm... I'm... so proud of you both. I had a feeling this would happen.
Zeb: I'm proud of you too, kid. You two have grown up so much. Bet you didn't miss this bucket of bolts.
Chopper gave his version of a nudge to the Lasat and the old friends and Bridger couple said their goodbyes as they moved to their military posts.
Back at the Temple, Rex and Ahsoka had been teaching their son, Anakin Tano many aspects of their expertise, but this particular lesson was from his father who had realized that his age caught up with him.
Rex: Son, Your mother and I served with your namesake for years, and You have been made aware of my aging. This won't happen to you, but I have things I wish to leave behind. The shrine has been entrusted to Luke's apprentice, but my armor, when you get old enough, as well as my blasters will be yours. Add my helmet to the shrine, give it to Grey. Learn the ways of the Force, like your mother, and her master before you. My mission is over. Continue with yours, and protect all that you love.
With those words, the mother and son embraced in grief. With a heavy heart, Anakin tried to bring himself to give his father's helmet to the Grandmaster's padawan.
Grey: Hello, little guy. What's your name?
Anakin: My name is Anakin Tano. My father told me to give you this.
X2 had then realized who his father and mother were. He then took the helmet and remembered what to do with it. He then asked the child if he wanted to accompany him.
Grey: Do you want to see what your father had referred to?
Anakin: Sure. What is it he wanted to put his helmet for?
Grey: Your father told you of the adventures he had with your mother?
Anakin: Yes.
Grey: After the Clone Wars ended, Your father started collecting helmets of fallen brothers, essentially your millions of uncles, who he was close with. He wanted his helmet on this shrine so he could continue being with them, in spirit.
Anakin: So my father has now joined my uncles in the Force?
Grey: Yes. Like your mother and many Jedi like her believe. When we see the shrine, you can ask anyone who knew your uncles about them, any time you like.
Anakin: Thank you. For everything.
Back at the Temple, Cal Kestis had been teaching the younglings Luke's 3 forms of combat. Form 8 included the use of a primary lightsaber and shoto secondary as needed much like Niman. Luke had been training in this style after making his red shoto from Ahsoka. Form 9 included the use of saber staves, crossguard sabers, and heavy strikes. Ben Solo had been training in this form as his base for when he would create a suitable saber in the future. Form 10 included using the lightsaber as a offensive shield in tandem with a blaster. Kata Akuna, Jacen Syndulla, and Ezra Bridger were the beat students with this form, since Kata saw her father use this form, and Ezra's first blade merged the two types of weapons. As the younglings and older students continued practicing, Kestis had begun having a vision.
Figure: Your family is unprotected. Only your hatred can keep them safe. The Dark Side that you have tasted before has been your savior time and time again. There is much to learn. All you need to do is embrace it! Remember those you've lost, your masters, your best friend, the Jedi Order. Give yourself to it!!
As Cal jolted out of the vision, Merrin came rushing over to comfort the Jedi Battlemaster.
When Luke and the other Jedi returned, he began to organize a meeting of the most powerful and wisest Jedi. Ahsoka, Starkiller, Luke, Cal, and Quinlan Vos had met in a round holotable that was reminiscent of the rebel base. X2, Merrin, and Jacen Syndulla kept watch over the rest of the youngling's training.
Luke: Thank you all for attending this inaugural meeting of the Jedi Council.
Quinlan: I never sat on the council of old before, feels a little weird sitting on one now.
Ahsoka: This is a first for me as well. I remember my master and Master Kenobi being on the council, but I never got the chance.
Luke: We are the wisest that remain of the Jedi, hence why I had chosen you all to serve on the council. Those from the order of old for advisory roles, some who are powerful in many aspects, and those who are willing to provide insight to how the Jedi can be reformed?
Cal: Reformed how exactly?
Luke: Master Kestis, what was the rule on attachment in the order of old?
Cal: That it was forbidden. When I was on Jeddha, I realized that I couldn't let it hold me back. I allowed myself to love unconditionally and now I have not only the child I adopted, but my own with my wife.
Ahsoka: I also had a husband after the battle of Endor, my son and I recently lost him to his accelerated aging.
Quinlan: You had a kid with a clone?
Ahsoka: Remember Captain Rex?
Quinlan: Skywalker's clone leader? Yes. Oh, oh, ooooohhhh.
Starkiller: I also married a pilot. She has been by my side, and we have two children.
Cal: How many of us are there supposed to be, if you don't mind me asking?
Luke: We would start with 6.
Starkiller: There's 5 of us here.
Luke: I understand. We were hoping to put allowing Ezra Bridger to the council.
Ahsoka: I believe that he would make an excellent addition to the council. He has a great tie to our Mandalorian Allies, being married to one.
Starkiller: His combat prowess has not changed since he was lost for years.
Quinlan: Alright. We survived the Empire due to our bending of the rules of the old Jedi Code. This can be more my speed.
Luke: Let's bring the decision to a vote. Those in favor of appointing Ezra Bridger to this council?
Ahsoka: Aye.
Starkiller: Aye.
Luke: Aye. Opposed?
Cal: Nay.
Quinlan: Nay.
Luke: Very well. Majority has decided to welcome Ezra Bridger to the council. Motion passed.
Quinlan: Alright. Guess we can throw away the old code.
Luke: All part of reformation, Master Vos.
Cal: I understand that my family and I have been away from the galaxy for quite some time. We can learn from him as well he learns from us.
Luke: Excellent, everyone. Council adjourned.
As Ezra arrived to the council chambers in his beskar armor, he had seen 3 familiar faces which only comforted him slightly.
Ezra: Council, you have requested my presence here.
Luke: Yes, Bridger. You know Ahsoka Tano, Galen Marek, but allow me to introduce Master Quinlan Vos, and Battlemaster Cal Kestis.
Ezra: A pleasure to meet you both.
Quinlan: Likewise.
Ahsoka: You have been brought before us due to your wisdom and ties to Mandalore, as well as your ability to maintain your dedication to the light.
Starkiller: Your confidence under pressure is commendable and your composure is inspiring for the other students.
Ezra: I understand.
Luke: We invite you to join this council and we grant you the rank of Master.
Ezra was shocked to hear this news from Luke, especially when he knew he had yet to train someone to use the Force.
Ezra: Thank you for this invitation, but I have yet to be a teacher.
Ahsoka: Kanan taught you really well. You have a great ability to bond with others.
Ezra: I see. I accept the seat on the Jedi Council.
As Ezra took his seat, the remaining Jedi had begun thinking of who to train out of the students they have.
Luke: Out of our oldest students here, it seems that even though most of them are our own children, they may need to learn to have different teachers other than parents.
Cal: What about allowing attachment in the Order?
Luke: Attachment can be good, if the attachments are healthy. Some separation can be good for some of the students.
Quinlan: Like how the Jedi of old used to do?
Luke: No, Master Vos. Most of the attachments already formed have been between some Jedi and their children.
Ahsoka: We can discuss this in another meeting.
Starkiller: She's right. Let's move on.
Luke: Thank you, Master Marek. Since I already have a padawan, we have 5 students that need a teacher.
Cal: 4. Kata Akuna is well trained enough by my wife in basic combat tactics, but since her father was a Jedi, I feel it's my duty to train her in the Force and lightsaber techniques. We have been Way from the galaxy for quite some time, and I don't want to overwhelm her with so much at once.
Luke: I see. We can remove her from the list. First, we must discuss who is to train Satine Kenobi Kryze.
Ezra: I will train her.
Luke: What case do you make for the daughter of my Master, Obi-Wan Kenobi?
Ezra: She is also the daughter of Bo-Katan Kryze, leader of Mandalore. With my ties to Mandalore and wisdom previously mentioned by Master Tano, she can learn to marry the ways of the Jedi and the ways of Mandalore in a healthy and coherent way.
Luke: Master Tano, any opposing statements?
Ahsoka: No, Grandmaster. Ezra's connections to Mandalore run deeper than mine.
Luke: It's settled then. Satine Kryze will be trained by Master Ezra Bridger. Next, we have Jacen Syndulla-Dume.
Ahsoka: I will train him.
Luke: What case do you make for young Syndulla-Dume?
Ahsoka: He is the grandson of a famous freedom fighter named Cham Syndulla. Like his grandfather and mother before him, he will be one of the greatest heroes in the galaxy.
Luke: Any opposing statements?
The room had looked around for any opposition to the scenario at hand, with nothing but silence.
Luke: Very well. Master Ahsoka Tano will take Jacen Syndulla-Dume as her apprentice. Master Marek, Master Vos, would you like to teach a student?
Quinlan: I've had enough adventure for a lifetime. I'll keep the records and preserve what Jocasta Nu had attempted to maintain. She had sent many pieces of information through The Path, hopefully most of it was preserved.
Cal: I actually have some left from a holdout on Jeddha that Vader burnt to the ground a few years back.
Starkiller: I believe that in order for me to be a teacher, my personal demons must be conquered first.
Luke: We respect your decision.
As the council adjourned on Yavin 4, another Force-sensitive being has been imprisoned by a group of pirates on Nevarro. As he used his cradle pod to hide from the danger, he had heard blaster fire in the distance. A bounty hunter clad in Mandalorian style armor, by the name of Din Djarin, and a long forgotten IG assassin droid, IG-11, had eliminated the pirates guarding their bounty. The droid had orders to execute the child, but the Mandalorian had orders to bring it to a client who would pay rather handsomely for the job. After the droid fell to a blaster shot to the chest, The beskar clad hunter brought the pod to the Empire. When the hunter got there, he was paid in beskar stamped with the Imperial seal. When the hunter took his payment, he began to feel a weight slowly growing heavier on his shoulders.
After the mandalorian got paid in beskar, he returned to the undercity lair of the Armourer to Forge the pieces he needed.
Armourer: How much do you have for me?
Djarin: How much will this do?
Armorer: Whatever work you found paid you handsomely. I'll send for you when it is ready.
Djarin: Thank you.
Armourer: This is the way.
Djarin: This is the way.
As the two separated, Djarin had collected his single shot disintegrator rifle and IB-94 pistol and began to plan on rescuing the child. When he got a message from his contractor, it was to meet him at the cantina, but he made another stop to the Armourer to inspect his new armor. When he arrived there was a new complete set of armor from the shoulders down.
Armourer: You have brought a great amount to work with. What do you plan to do?
Djarin: Correct a mistake. One that if left as is, will besmirch my honor.
Armourer: This is The Way.
Djarin: This is The Way.
When Djarin arrived at the cantina, the room began to quiet down in astonishment and intimidation. The baskar clad hunter then met with the contractor, Greef Karga. To discuss the job that had gone down.
Greef: Wow, Mando. I take it the client paid you well. All that armor definitely doesn't come cheap.
Djarin: The payout was a handsome one, but I've made a mistake, one I must correct before my honor is worthless.
Greef: Why? Who was your client?
Djarin: The beskar that the client paid me with had Imperial symbols on it.
Greef: Isn't the Empire gone? What would they need- We shouldn't even ask those questions, cause that's not our job.
Djarin: I'm getting him back. This is The Way.
Karga thought that Djarin had gone crazy taking on the Empire. He then kept his head down and put away the bounty puck, saving it for another hunter who wasn't as susceptible to any hokey religions and ancient weapons, as a smuggler turned Alliance hero once said, but only susceptible to credits.
In the New Republic, Generals Solo and Syndulla had sat down discussing some military tactics for defending the new territories and liberating others, and even giving her a piece of information that he could no longer bear his portion of.
Hera: I heard that you joined us moments before Yavin and rescued the Princess of Alderaan. Your kid is studying alongside mine at Skywalker's temple.
Han: Yeah. As much as I tried with her, eventually I succeeded, little did I know that the family drama would be mine to carry along with the Skywalker twins.
Hera: The princess isn't a Skywalker.
Han: She is. Luke is her brother. I'm the only one besides Chewie, Ahsoka, and those ghosts he sometimes talks to.
Hera: Her position in the senate will be up for grabs if that information gets out.
Han: Then you will keep that secret just as I have, that Chewie and Ahsoka have, before she loses potential power in the Senate. Anyways, have we found any more Imperials?
As the conversation continued, Sabine had begun talking to Zeb about joining the team of New Republic Rangers.
Sabine: Hey, Zeb! You got an extra spot on the team?
Zeb: Sabine! Glad to see ya. Well, it ain't me you gotta talk to Marshal Dune over there. From the looks of it, we're fixing to load up. Talk to her when we get back. I'll put in a good word for ya.
Sabine: Thanks Zeb! Tell her I'm great with explosives!
She told the Lasat the last part as the ships roared to life and then as the Lasat gave her a thumbs up, a quick goodbye before they left for the mission.
On the ship, Colonel Kallus had begun talking with Hera about the plan involving the Rangers encountering an Imperial presence on Kashyyyk.
Kallus: General. What are these reports of a couple Jedi joining our group to our mission?
Hera: Since the Jedi have agreed to serve the New Republic on occasional missions, they can decide to help us or not. 2 of them have decided to help us.
Kallus: Can they be trusted? Last time the Jedi helped the Republic of old, they were massacred by the clones who were the first troops of the Empire.
Hera: I have complete faith in these Jedi. My son is one of them. Has your trip to reinvigorate the Lasat population been for naught?
Kallus: No, General. I am just airing on the side of caution. While continuing to do so, I request that I join the ground assault so I can see for myself that these Jedi can be trusted and serve as servants of the Galaxy, not just us.
Hera: Granted, Colonel. These Jedi know the planet a d will be your best bet in navigating the environment and the wookiees.
Kallus: What makes them such experts?
Hera: They were born on the planet.
As Kallus continued to don his armor, blaster, and join Dune and her forces, he began imagining two wookiee jedi, something he thought was both absurd and frightening. When he got to the hangar bay, he was met by half of his expectations.
Kallus: You two must be the Jedi accompanying us I heard so much about.
Starkiller: We are, Colonel. I am Master Marek, and this is Jedi Knight Gungi.
Gungi roared a greeting to the Former Imperial agent turned Rebel Colonel.
Kallus: You two were born on Kashyyyk?
Starkiller: Yes. Gungi you expected since he was a youngling during the Clone Wars, but my parents hid on the world and had me, until they were killed by Vader. Vader took me as his own, trained me to be his weapon, and when the Rebel Alliance was formed, they used my family crest.
Kallus was shocked to hear this information and immediately cast whatever doubt he had aside and introduced the Jedi to the rest of the team of Rangers.
In orbit above Kashyyyk, Lord Cain had been discussing a battle plan with Thrawn, hoping to keep the wookiees in chains for his cloning experiments.
Thrawn: My Emperor, We have detected a rebel fleet that has just exited hyperspace. I suggest that we send the Imperial Army troopers, with the stormtroopers in reserve.
Cain: We have enough power with the garrisons of stormtroopers coming in to relieve the last one. The army troopers are ineffective with maintaining their loyalty to the Empire.
Thrawn: With all due respect, my lord, The wookiees would believe that they would be calmer if they see human faces help them, or they would see any human face as an enemy and attack any other humans on sight.
Cain: So that's your play? Excellent idea. Send the Army troops to maintain the security of the labs and have the stormtroopers guard everywhere else.
Thrawn: At once, my lord.
Cain: My apprentice, once all the necessary vessels are left to join the battle, you must board another destroyer, so the New Republic dogs think they destroyed a command vessel. If Skywalker is not with them, You will engage the less powerful if there are more. If Maul's forces arrive, deal with the silver skinned slimo.
Lumiya: Yes, my master.
Back on Dathomir, Maul and his apprentice have been meditating on Sith teachings until Maul sensed something stirring within his apprentice.
Maul: You have slowed down your rate of study. What is troubling you?
Relicta: It's that Jedi. The one who looked like the one we killed when he tried to hunt us. When I fought him on Mandalore, he said that he and the one we fought were clones of him.
Maul: Since the one you executed wielded red blades, and the one you've encountered on Mandalore had blue blades, what he has told you is true. Vader and my late former master killed him above Naboo, when their first superweapon was under construction.
Relicta: He still has to die. I will not gain certain closure for as long as he lives.
Maul: Then the decision to hunt him down will be solely placed in your hands. Take a ship and find him, if you must. We have an army to maintain and no assured method of recruitment.
Relicta: Yes, Master.
After meditating on her decision to find Starkiller, she finally made the choice and began planning on turning many Imperial troops into her own.
As the Rangers touched down along with the Rogue Shadow, they were greeted by the hiding wookiee chieftain flanked by 3 of his guards. As Gungi communicated with them about the situation, Marek translated for the group.
In the labs, the Imperial army troopers had been watching the wookiees get poked and prodded when a couple had seen a robed figure just vanish. As the soldiers pursued the figure, Relicta knew her plan was working, she was going to lure each soldier away from their posts to defect to her side. As every Army soldier continued to maintain their post, they knew their loyalties were no longer with the Empire.
Back on Nevarro, Djarin had returned to the client with intent to kill. When the 4 stormtroopers guarding him raised their blasters, he drew his pistol and aimed his free arm at another.
Stormtrooper: There's 4 of us. No way you walk put of here alive.
Djarin: I like those odds.
As the client was frozen in fear, he saw 2 blasts bounce off the armor as the hunter fired his pistol into one trooper, and the whistle rockets from his gauntlet fired in multiple directions killing the rest, sending the client running until Djarin fired a shot into the back of his head.
As the child cooed after opening the pram canopy, the beskar clad warrior tried to assure the infant that they were safe.
Djarin: Don't worry. I'll bring you back to your kind. You can trust me.
When the beskar clad warrior returned to his ship, he made sure that the pram was protected and prepared for more Imperial Forces.
As the Rangers, Kallus, Starkiller, and Gungi arrived at the Imperial base, the former ISB Agent saw a long highway leading up to the labs, much like the Imperial checkpoint on Lothal.
In the labs, Relicta finished her work moving the army troopers to position themselves ready to attack the stormtroopers. As she evacuated the labs, she contacted her master and began hunting the Jedi that were going to rescue the wookiees.
Relicta: Master, I have increased our odds against the Empire and I'm about to destroy the Jedi.
Maul: Excellent. Happy Hunting. When you destroy the Jedi, meet me on Oba Diah. We have an old alliance to rekindle.
As the female Zabrak ordered the Imperial army troops to fight against the stormtroopers, the New Republic squad and wookiee liberators joined in the battle and fought both sides. Kallus had ordered the troops and the chieftain to surround the lab entrance while the Jedi attempted to hunt whoever made the confusing move of turning the army against the stormtroopers.
Kallus: Where are you going, Marek?
Starkiller: Gungi and I are hunting whoever forced these army troops against the stormtroopers. Call Juno if you need any air support.
Kallus: Thank you, Master Jedi! Rogue Shadow, this is Colonel Kallus, we need you to lead an airstrike against any Imperial support that my come to reinforce the labs!
Juno: On my way, Colonel! I'll evacuate the prisoners if I have no other orders.
Kallus: Duly noted, Captain!
As Gungi and Starkiller found a cloaked figure, Gungi leapt in for a strike, but as the figure teleported away, Gungi was severely wounded with a stab to his ribcage, incapacitating the wookiee.
Relicta: I know who you are, Jedi. You don't fool me for a second.
Starkiller: A clone of the one you seek, yes.
Relicta: No! You are the one who took my masters away from me!!
Starkiller: You claimed to have fought and killed me, until you saw me on Mandalore.
Relicta: You will still die for Felucia!!
Starkiller then remembered what Kota told him about his vision of this woman was. As he steeled himself for a fight against the girl that his progenitor go and activated his two sapphire blades.
Gungi was crawling away to heal his wounds and as he saw the other Jedi Master fight with such raw potential compared to the Lady of the Sith. As Relicta threw her sabers after cloaking, Starkiller then balled himself up for a lightning infused Force repulse. As the energy blasted out of the Clone, Relicta had felt her robes be singed while she was thrown back against a tree. Starkiller then saw the figure disappear again and activated his unleashed state, sending Force lightning to his sabers. As Maris attempted to block each strike that looked like a blurr to anyone unable to touch the Force, but as Maris's arms continued to be singed, her defenses fell and Starkiller delivered a saber slam infused with Force lightning, further crimping her silver skin.
As Relicta used the last of her anger, what brushed it away was the last words that she may have heard from the Jedi.
Starkiller: You should've listened to me on Felucia years ago, Maris.
Relicta: That name is dead!
Starkiller: Your misery will end, Brood.
Relicta: I have a son! You can't make him an orphan!
Starkiller realized that since she was a mother, he had to reassure her that he won't come for her family.
Starkiller: I know what it is like to care for others like a family. They will be spared if they mean that much to you.
As Starkiller stepped closer to the fear-stricken zabrak, Relicta realized that she would join her former masters soon. Starkiller spun his right blade and stabbed her heart with a reverse grip, and stabbed her trachea with the left blade. The Marek clone then tended to Gungi and made their way back to the victorious alliance.
Aboard the Razor Crest, Djarin had begun searching for answers as to where the child he had in his care belonged. When he landed on Tatooine, he landed in a city where another job was about to take place that required multiple members. One member was a former Imperial Marksman by the name of Migs Mayfeld, and the others were a rather legendary pair; one was a Gand bounty hunter with a very keen talent for psychometry named Zuckuss, and a protocol droid like partner in crime by the designation 4-LOM.
Their job entailed taking some highly classified Imperial information that was about to be declassified aboard a star destroyer above Kuat. The veteran pair were very eager to get the job done efficiently and quickly. The other two, who had less experience were very dubious about what the intel was and who should possess it.
Mayfeld: So, Mando. You ever met those two?
Djarin: No. I haven't heard if them.
Mayfeld: My former CO told me that they wre tasked by Darth Vader to find a Corellian Freighter containing rebel officers and leadership. I never liked bounty hunters, but it's better than The Empire I can say that much.
Djarin: What do you plan to do once we get the information?
Mayfeld: From what I understood from those two, they're the kind to kill any partners to grow their share. How about we turn the tables on them, you and me? Huh?
Djarin: If those two are as legendary and skilled as you say they are, killing them would serve a tactical advantage and a good monetary step up in this line of work.
Mayfeld: Good. Thanks. We'll be rich and famous, well, infamous, for taking down those two.
When Mayfeld entered an Imperial encryption that checked out the crew entered the decommissioned destroyer and extracted the information needed from two different sections of computers. 4-LOM and Zuckuss had one half of the intel and Djarin held onto the other. As their clocks ran down, Mayfeld saw information about Operation Cinder and found that his CO was a field officer in the near destruction of his post on Burnin Konn.
As the bounty hunter crew split into two pairs and eventually spread themselves out, they were on the hunt to eliminate those they believed to be loose ends. Throughout the vacant destroyer, Djarin had used his cycler rifle to move from cover to cover as he searched for the droid. Mayfeld drew his DT-12 pistols and SE-14r pistol on the hunt for the gas breathing insectoid hunter.
Aboard the Razor Crest, The child had grown worried that he was left on his own, but remembered everything he had experienced during the purge almost 30 years ago.
As Zuckuss had turned a corner near the reactor room, Mayfeld had found the perfect shot with his trio of pistols, but a slip of one of his legs let out a screech causing Mayfeld to fire on the hunter, landing 3 precise shots to his right eye, heart, and his left thigh. A stray blast from Zuckuss's blaster left a hile through the rafters of the room as Mayfeld let himself fall to the walkways and make his way to take Zuckuss's information.
As 4-LOM continued to hunt one of the lesser hunters, he slowly began turning his head to see Beskar through a corner slot before seeing the cycler round fire through the corners of the halls, missing the droid's head, causing the droid to slowly approach approach him, blasting with the DLT-19 he had stolen from an Imperial outpost on Mimban.
Djarin knew that he had time to load another shot, and as he flanked the slow moving droid, he snuck around behind him and used another cycler round to the back of the hunter's head. As the brain-like head flew off the body, the protocol droid body collapsed forward, and Djarin switched to his pistol as he thought he had to fight his way back to his ship. When he saw his ship in the hangar, he tried contacting Mayfeld about his location.
Djarin: Mayfeld? Where are you?
Mayfeld: I'm not going with you. I'm taking a TIE to the rendezvous point. Meet me back at Mos Pelgo so we can get our credits.
Djarin: Fine. I'll meet you there.
As the two landed in different ports on Tatooine, they returned to their contractor, Ranzar Malk, they were each paid 32,570 credits, due to 4-LOM and Zuckuss perishing on the job.
When the Mandalorian and Former Imperial parted ways, Djarin had continued his quest to find the child's kind.
On Dathomir, Maul had recently learned that his apprentice perished on Kashyyyk, but her passing had a massive effect on his ability to maintain his own Sith Triumvirate. He had recently taken another apprentice in case Relicta decided that the way of the Sith was no longer important to her.
Maul: As you can feel, my new apprentice, Lady Relicta has been destroyed by the Jedi. Even though both of us had agreed to train you, it seems that you will learn the traditional ways of the Sith. This begins another chapter, Lady... Talon.
Talon: Yes, my master. We will conquer our enemies and usurp galactic power on a massive scale.

2023.06.03 11:25 ByfelsDisciple First time parent, first time mutilator

“How much of your family are you willing to lose?” the Leech hissed.
I struggled against his arms, but the Leech’s grip was firmer than a duck’s watertight asshole. My fingers tingled from where they hung helplessly at my side.
“So you can choose, Kim,” the thing gurgled at my wife. She stood still, arms at her sides, the car headlights illuminating her silhouette next to the “Route 1913” signpost. “Give Ella to me, and I let your husband walk away with you. If you take too long to decide, I rip hubby’s torso in half before killing you and taking your daughter.”
Kimmy, my headstrong and very fucking stubborn wife, balked.
That scared me more than anything.
I had very recently learned that her boldness was not confined to interior design arguments and BDSM roleplay; she had supernatural abilities that I was only beginning to comprehend.
Which meant her hesitation revealed she believed, at least in part, that the Leech’s words were true. She knew he might overpower her, and that there was a very realistic chance our daughter was about to be taken no matter what she chose. So I did the only thing that made sense.
“Hey guy,” I huffed. “Are you getting riled up by this thing you’re doing to me and my wife? Because you’re pressing yourself up against my hips, and there is nothing subtle about your libido right now.”
“Russ, please don’t antagonize him,” Kimmy begged, her voice laced with terror. “Please let me handle this.”
“Oh, I will,” I answered. “Just as soon as I’m done.” Turning to face the Leech, I stared into the darkness of his head.
God damn, I wish I hadn’t done that. It was like looking into a kaleidoscope of sadness. His entire face was black, but not because it was shrouded in shadow. The best explanation I can offer is that light couldn’t exist where his head was. I shuddered.
Closing my eyes, I focused on what I had been saying before. “I might not be able to stop you from shredding my guts, friend, but I’ll be a fucked pig if you think I’m cool with you getting off on the idea.”
He hissed and pulled me tighter still.
Just like I knew he would.
The downside was that I could no longer breathe. The upside was that his erect penis was now pressed into my open palm.
I grabbed the appendage and twisted like I was trying to open a pickle jar for Kimmy that wouldn’t budge. That actually happened once, and I watched her face go from thinking “my husband can take care of this” to “maybe my infant daughter needs to take over.”
I realize now that my two-year-old is orders of magnitude stronger than I am, but I did not have this information at the time.
So I pulled on a depth of strength that I didn’t know I had as I squeezed the pickle jar. The effort resulted in a little shit nugget squirting directly into my underwear, but I got the jar open, so it was worth it. Besides, it was Kimmy’s turn to do the laundry.
I turned with the same effort now as I twisted the Leech’s ding dong, feeling a blood vessel burst in my eye.
He dropped me, and I fell to the ground like a sack of wet cement.
That was all Kimmy needed. I still didn’t understand exactly what she was or what she could do, but I knew she was deadly.
I felt fire, and I closed my eyes.
The silence terrified me more than anything, because I knew that one of them had died instantly. Heart racing, I opened my left eye I first, wanting and not wanting to see who remained.
Warmth spread through me as I saw Kimmy standing over the dark Leech. That warmth turned to hot nausea when I realized she was holding his head like a rotten pumpkin that dripped foul liquid onto his decapitated body below. I’ve been with Kimmy long enough to know that I need to give her space when she’s angry, so I crawled back toward the car to check on Ella. Propping myself up on my elbows, I looked into the back seat.
She had gotten ahold of the golf clubs I leave in the back, and was bending my nine-iron like a pool noodle. I closed my eyes and sighed.
“You’re safe,” breathed. “I’m grateful for that. The clubs are replaceable.”
Ella giggled and farted.
“Are you finished doing stupid shit?”
I shot into a standing position, shocked at the voice in my ear.
Kimmy stood face-to-face with me.
I sighed with relief and hugged her, but she remained frozen. Pulling back, I met her eyes. I was worried that I would find anger there, but saw only the purest kind of fear.
“Do you realize how lucky you are to be alive after pulling that stunt?” she whispered in a high-pitched voice.
Heat ran up my neck. “No, Kimmy, in fact I don’t. Do you know why I don’t? It’s because you’ve been hiding every important thing about yourself. So I can’t say how dangerous it is to fondle Leeches or punch Malverns because you’ve kept me in the dark. If you’re going to be pissed at someone, look in a mirror, Kimmy.”
She closed her eyes and forced slow, steady breaths. “You’re right, Russ,” she answered quietly.
Kimmy opened her eyes. “You’re right. This is my fault, and I’m sorry.”
“I don’t understand.”
“What don’t you understand?”
I scratched the back of my head. “It’s just… I’ve never heard you say that I was entirely blameless.”
An awkward silence hung.
“Let’s just agree that we’ve both been wrong in the past,” Kimmy conceded.
I didn’t contradict her, knowing this was the best offer likely to come my way.
She folded her arms, hung her head, and rested her face in her hand. “I’m so, so sorry, Russ. I convinced myself that we could have a normal family, and once I accepted the fact that I was lying to myself, I wanted to keep living that lie as long as I could.”
Kimmy dropped her hands to her sides and gave me the saddest look. “Okay,” she whispered. “Here’s the truth about my family and our daughter.”

I survived to write my side of things, but not everyone did.
“How much of your family are you willing to lose?” the Leech hissed.
I struggled against his arms, but the Leech’s grip was firmer than a duck’s watertight asshole. My fingers tingled from where they hung helplessly at my side.
“So you can choose, Kim,” the thing gurgled at my wife. She stood still, arms at her sides, the car headlights illuminating her silhouette next to the “Route 1913” signpost. “Give Ella to me, and I let your husband walk away with you. If you take too long to decide, I rip hubby’s torso in half before killing you and taking your daughter.”
Kimmy, my headstrong and very fucking stubborn wife, balked.
That scared me more than anything.
I had very recently learned that her boldness was not confined to interior design arguments and BDSM roleplay; she had supernatural abilities that I was only beginning to comprehend.
Which meant her hesitation revealed she believed, at least in part, that the Leech’s words were true. She knew he might overpower her, and that there was a very realistic chance our daughter was about to be taken no matter what she chose. So I did the only thing that made sense.
“Hey guy,” I huffed. “Are you getting riled up by this thing you’re doing to me and my wife? Because you’re pressing yourself up against my hips, and there is nothing subtle about your libido right now.”
“Russ, please don’t antagonize him,” Kimmy begged, her voice laced with terror. “Please let me handle this.”
“Oh, I will,” I answered. “Just as soon as I’m done.” Turning to face the Leech, I stared into the darkness of his head.
God damn, I wish I hadn’t done that. It was like looking into a kaleidoscope of sadness. His entire face was black, but not because it was shrouded in shadow. The best explanation I can offer is that light couldn’t exist where his head was. I shuddered.
Closing my eyes, I focused on what I had been saying before. “I might not be able to stop you from shredding my guts, friend, but I’ll be a fucked pig if you think I’m cool with you getting off on the idea.”
He hissed and pulled me tighter still.
Just like I knew he would.
The downside was that I could no longer breathe. The upside was that his erect penis was now pressed into my open palm.
I grabbed the appendage and twisted like I was trying to open a pickle jar for Kimmy that wouldn’t budge. That actually happened once, and I watched her face go from thinking “my husband can take care of this” to “maybe my infant daughter needs to take over.”

2023.06.03 11:10 dwredbaker When do you think was the coming of the Kingdom of God?

When do you think was the coming of the Kingdom of God?

callmerella asked:
"When do you think was the coming of the Kingdom of God?
When do you think was the coming of the Kingdom of God?
Asked by another in another forum, who will remain anonymous, here..
That person answered themselves with "I think it was instituted at His being raised from the dead after His death on the cross. "
Red Baker's response: This subject cannot be dealt with in one or a few posts adequately, but will say for now these few words:
  1. The Bible has several kingdoms, which we will list but not say very much now, only to saved time.
    1. God reigns over a universal kingdom of all things: always has, always will. (I Chr 29:11).
    2. Israel was a kingdom synonymous with the O.T. church, but that kingdom is forever gone. (I Sam 15:28; II Chr 2; Matthew 21:43).
    3. God translates us at regeneration into Christ’s vital kingdom (Col 1:13; Eph 2:1-5) this has ALWAYS BEEN TRUE FORM ABEL ON.
    4. There is a heavenly kingdom: we know it as heaven (II Timothy 4:18; II Pet 1:11).
    5. There are heretical kingdoms e.g. premillennial and postmillennial kinds we reject.
    6. The kingdom halls of JW’s are lunatic asylums of the followers of Charles Russell.
  2. There is a spiritual kingdom of Jesus Christ that is closely related to His true churches.
    1. It is closely related to the Old Testament kingdom of Israel, though more spiritual.
    2. Daniel prophesied the God of heaven would set it up while Rome ruled (Da 2:44).
    3. The kingdom of God and heaven are identical; Scofield erred (Matthew 19:23-24).
    4. This is the kingdom John, Jesus, and Paul announced as present with men entering.
    5. Before there was any local church, baptism was the way to enter this kingdom.
    6. It is not identical to churches, for believers between churches are in His kingdom.
    7. Kingdom is never used in the plural, while any two churches are certainly plural.
    8. The churches of Jesus Christ are the organizational, visible aspect of this kingdom. Every true church, considered individually, is the body of Christ itself (I Cor 12:12-27).
    9. Each true church is an outpost of Christ’s kingdom in an enemy world, much like David established to protect his kingdom and collect tribute (II Sam 8:1-15; Acts 15:16).
So, to be brief, the CHURCH, in one sense is God's kingdom on earth has been here since the beginning. The kingdom of God IN ITS FINAL ETERNAL GLORY is yet to be seen and will only be seen in the new heaven and new earth.
Hope this helps.
