I played every Ace Combat games and more in a months long marathon.

2023.03.24 04:11 KaptinSalazoo I played every Ace Combat games and more in a months long marathon.

Hello everyone,
I was going to write a life story thing about why I did this, but it would take too long and this post is already going to be pretty hefty. So I'll cut to the chase, over the last few months, I did an Ace Combat Marathon which also includes all the games I consider to be "Ace Combat Like". I did omit a few here and there, but it was either because they were too hard to obtain, too far from what I consider to be the Ace Combat formula or just not interesting enough. Now that it is over, I would like to tell you about my experience with all of these games, so, if you are interested, have a good read !


- English is not my native language and I am brain dead so if me no write good me sory.
- These entries are not reviews but simply a summary of how I felt about each game.
- Spoilers

Here are the games, in the order that I played them in :

Games that, in my opinion, constitute the main continuity :

Air Combat / Ace Combat 1 :
- Gameplay : Dated, but still very usable by modern players.
- Graphics : I mean... it's a 1995 game. But the emulator gave it a good coat of paint.
- Story : Just enough to justify the game happening, it's no big deal, we all know where the series goes later on. I just love the idea of an island-nation sized terror group having a giant air force, aircraft carriers, a supersized stronghold and a flying fortress (the first of the ace combat series).
- Music : Pure 90's juice, get ready to rock and synth.

Ace Combat 2 :
- Gameplay : Great for the time, it's completely servicable to this day.
- Graphics : A noticable improvement from the first AC, specially good with the right emulator settings.
- Story : Literally the same as the first AC but on a bigger scale, gets expanded upon in the remake.
- Music : In my opinion, the best from the PS1 series, Lode Stone is still stuck in my head.

Ace Combat 3 Electrosphere (Japanese version with english text patch, necessary since, for those who don't know, the international version got most of its content cut out.) :
- Gameplay : The best of the PS1 series, feels much more like flying a plane than in the previous ACs. Plus the special missions where you fly a stratospheric bomber, a parasite fighter or a hecking starfighter are something else.
- Graphics : Again, an improvement on the previous entry, although less drastic, the art style is the most noticable feature.
- Story : Who put planes in my metal gear solid story line ? My man went from zero story to a five branches storyline about revenge, corporatism and transhumanism in a cyberpunk universe with unique missions and 2d animated cutscenes.
- Music : Extremely... unique and hard to describe, it wouldn't be out of place in a horror game or a creepypasta about some haunted retroware.

Ace Combat 4 Shattered skies :
- Gameplay : Wierdly it's not too different from AC3 in my opinion, but hey, if it ain't broken, don't fix it.
- Graphics : The transition to the PS2 is truly impressive, it's just great to look at. Although, beware, it has some graphical issues with emulation.
- Story : Far less complex than AC3, but perhaps told with more style, it's more heartfelt and relatable. And of course, this is kind of where the strangereal universe is starting to become more established.
- Music : The first game in the series where the sky starts speaking latin, it establishes what the Ace Combat music style is going to be from then on.

Ac Combat 5 The unsung war :
- Gameplay : More or less the same as in AC4, perhaps a little bit more arcadey ? Great plane diversity though.
- Graphics : Maybe it was because of emulation and the UI but I felt like it was a slight downgrade from AC4, probably not the case though.
- Story : Kind of a balance between the war story theme of AC4 and the over the top sci-fi conspiracy vibe of AC3, most of the series will adopt this dynamic from then on.
- Music : Same vibe as AC4, with more latin singing for us to enjoy.

Ace Combat Zero The Belkan war :
- Gameplay : Similar to the two previous entries, although with more bossfights.
- Graphics : Also similar to the rest of the PS2 trilogy, it's not like there was much room to improve within the limits of the console's hardware.
- Story : Something something borders bad, buddy, funni country nukes itself, V2, it's time, bottom text. A good story that establishes a solid fundation for the strangereal lore.
- Music : The sky speaks latin, flamenco edition.

Ace Combat X Skies of deception :
- Gameplay : The engine was recycled from AC4 so it's similar, which is good, although everything is slowed down to help with the PSP controls.
- Graphics : About as much as you could squeeze out of the PSP for a flight sim, which is pretty neat.
- Story : A step back from previous entries, but more than enough to get all those good ace combat tropes in there, superweapons galore, conspiracy, zealous characters, the whole nine yards.
- Music : A suprising return to the PS1 trilogy vibe, probably to go easy on those poor little PSP speakers. Though it's not at the same level of quality; most of the ost would make Minasha Please, your freestyle dance teacher, go crazy.

Ace Combat 6 Fires of liberation :
- Gameplay : The first big improvement since AC3, with the notable introduction of post stall maneuvers. Also the scale of the missions are unprecedented thanks to the transition to the xbox360, with loads of units on both sides.
- Graphics : New platform, new graphics, and boy is it gorgeous ! Still very much holds its own to this day, although they had to pay for it with the diversity of planes, which is the lowest in the series.
- Story : Very similar to AC4, down to the presentation, but more clumsy. It's not bad by any means, just kind of average.
- Music : Back to the AC classic formula, although the most memorable ost isn't the final latin one this time, but the aptly named "Liberation of Gracemeria".

Ace Combat X² Joint Assault (The most based Ace Combat in my opinion) :
- Gameplay : Similar to the previous PSP entry, but even slower. (That's not to say easier, some bossfights are downright bullshit.) Also you can pilot WW2 planes and a 747 so 10/10.
- Graphics : A bit of an improvement on Skies of Deception, but yeah... still PSP graphics.
- Story : Set in the real world, but whith all the over the top absurdity of strangereal and somehow even more. How about a story where Jeff Bezos hires the entire Romanian army to become terrorists in order to mount the biggest insurance scam ever, supplying them with usual ace combat tier superweapons, but the Romanians betray him and try to found Romania 2 electric boogaloo in Khazakstan; but you stop them and now have to face your rival who breaks down in tears about his parents mid boss fight before you shoot him down in his guitar looking ass superfighter, ending the story by personally flying your jet under amazon HQ in San Francisco to explode Jeff Bezos with a Maverick missile to the face ?
- Music : About as bonkers as the story, a mix of usual Ace Combat epic score, throwbacks to the PS1 trilogy ost, stereotypical middle eastern music, and some sort of hard rock ? Seriously listen to "In the Zone", it's pretty representative.

Ace Combat Assault Horizon :
- Gameplay : The game feels like it's been developped by a 12 years old high on sugar and aderall, the first mission almost gave me an epilepsy attack and I'm not even epileptic. It's obviously a huge departure from the traditionnal ace combat gameplay, and there are cool aspects like the attack helicopter missions, but the rest of the game feels like it's on rails, which for a plane game is kind of an oxymoron. The "dogfight mode" is basically a roller coaster simulator, some missions like the AC-130 and the Blackhawk door gunner ones are ripped straight from call of duty; and the one strategic bomber mission is literally on rails most of the time.
- Graphics : More or less average for the time ? I had a hard time seeing behind the Michael Bay level of explosions and particles going off everywhere, everytime all at once. Although the plane destruction animations are kinda cool, they just get old fast.
- Story : Basically Call of Duty or a Tom Clancy novel but with planes, I suppose they were trying to one up HAWX which came out a year earlier ? Some funny elements are the main big friendly general being french and dubbed by someone poorly imitating a french accent; also the main baddies, the Russian rebels, use the litteral waffen SS division symbols for their units, what's up with that ?
- Music : Strangely pretty cool ? Lots of competent rock and epic scores, very intense, in keeping with the theme, but not bad by any means.

Ace Combat 7 Skies Unknown :
- Gameplay : Same basis as AC6 but improved, pretty much the best it's been so far.
- Graphics : Well, as the most modern AC, it's also naturally the best looking. Planes, effects, maps, art style, it's all great stuff.
- Story : Belka did it again, skynet edition. Also air force penal batallion sent on suicide missions with half the members convicted of relatively light offences and/or with investigations still pending, thanks OSEA, you truly are one of the democracies of all time. Overall the story is regular Ace Combat stuff, its highlights being, as often, the bonkers strangereal elements.
- Story (DLC) : Hunt for the red october, but lots of planes and also the characters are insane. 10/10
- Music : Back to good ol' latin choirs, latiner choirer, plus the usual cool epic scores, great as always.

Games that are outside the main continuity but I still consider to be Ace Combat games :

Ace Combat Assault Horizon Legacy+ (Despite the title, it's a remake of AC2) :
- Gameplay : Surprisingly great for a DS/3DS title, better than the PSP entries in my opinion. There are post stall maneuvers and a watered down, more digest version of Assault Horizon's dogfight mode.
- Graphics : Pretty good for 3DS hardware, it's obviously a huge improvement on the original AC2. Also there are some nintendo themed planes, it's pretty neat, now I know that if Luigi was a jet, he would be an F-35.
- Story : There is a story where there was almost none in AC2, so it's an improvement in my book. They gave your wingmen voice lines, and I love the fact that they made the original "Edge" Kei Nagase kind of a Tsundere. The best new feature is the added ACZero style special squadron bossfights, each being more absurd than the last, there's : Medieval LARPers in F-14s, Furry with anger issues, E-girl and her tier 3 simp squadron, Man who plays chess in his plane ; and finally, three fleshed out ZOE bossfights, where in the original AC2, ZOE was just kinda flying around, being an optionnal ennemy with more HP.
- Music : Most of the tracks were changed for a more modern aces combat feel, but there are some bangers in there nontheless.
PS : In the original release, mission 2, easy money, was mistranslated as easy monkey which made me die laughing because I have internet brain rot.

The Sky Crawlers Innocent Aces :
- Gameplay : As close as we'll get from a WW2 themed Ace Combat, and frankly, it's pretty good. The final boss is annoying and there is kind of a dogfight mode light similar to assault horizon legacy because of Wii controls, but other than that, they handeled a gameplay without missiles and with slow prop planes amazingly, while retaining the unmistakable Ace Combat flavor.
- Graphics : I'd say average for Wii hardware, the strong point being the designs and art style which is arguably more thanks to the original novel and animated movie, but the game renders is very well.
- Story : Set in the dieselpunk universe of the Sky Crawler, based on the novel series, the game's story still is more or less original as a prequel to the animated movie adaptation. The lore aside it's very much an Ace Combat story, with conspiracies, betrayals, sacrifices, superweapons, giant fortresses, ace duels etc. As for your main "rival", she's an unhinged tsundere immortal child soldier clone, make of that what you will.
- Music : It's mostly bangers, although not similar to any other Ace Combat game.

Ace Combat likes, either competition or hommage to the franchise (mostly competition though) :

- Gameplay : It's competent, the game is fun to play overall, although the flight mechanics are far more basic than in AC6; its contemporary AC title, even though it was two years old at this point. They tried to compensate with gimmicks like some sort of flight assist tunnel thingy to reach your target, which is pretty useless except when the game makes it mendatory. Also there is the "flight assit mode off" which allows your plane to perform post stall maneuvers at the cost of stability, which would have been great if it didn't force your camera into a disorienting and immersion breaking far away third person view, which doesn't even track your targets half the time. That's bad considering you need it to beat some adversaries like ennemy aces. The plane diversity is huge but they all handle mostly the same. As for the missions, most of them are escort which is pretty frustrating, also some borrow pretty shamelessly from AC with their objectives and sometimes even their plots.
- Graphics : It's not amazing to be honest. The planes and cockpit models are basic, the maps are below the quality seen in AC6, same for the effects and particles. Some model look downright like they were made for the PS2. The artstyle kind of reminds me of G.I Joe, especially the fictionnal units like the baddie's tanks and their super warship, it's got this "toy" aesthetics. They even have a fictionnal superfighter to unlock at the end of the campaign, but it looks like an F-22 drawn by an eight years old.
- Story : It's exactly what it says on the tin, what if Tom Clancy had to write an Ace Combat story. So yeah it's big non descript bad guy attacks and you need to save murica' and thu prasidunt. Also the ghost recons appears so often the game might as well be an ad : "look at this other, better series I've made".
- Music : So unremarkable I didn't even pay attention to it, it's a generic action movie score, nothing more to say.

Unfortunately, I was unable to get HAWX2 to work due to server shutdown, thanks ubisoft, forcing games to be played online even in singleplayer was a great idea. Apparently the latest patch was supposed to make it playable offline but this somehow stil doesn't work. There was apparently a workaround using a crack which I was unfortunately unable to find despite giving my PC probably ten viruses, seven trojans and a dozen crypto miners trying to find it. Meh, not that big of a loss according to what I've seen on youtube and read online. The graphics even look like a downgrade from the previous entry somehow.

Air force Delta :
- Gameplay : Very similar to AC2 with slightly better stall physics, a shame when you know it came out the same year as AC3. The missions are what you'd expect from an actual ace combat titles with fortresses, fleets, aces and giant planes bossfights sprinkled in. It's noticably harder than Ace Combat but not for good reasons in my opinion. Your missiles have somehow even worst tracking than in AC, but ennemy missiles seem guided by god. The ennemy AI has absurd turn radius and is seemingly unable to stall. Mission timers are also very short, which results in a situation where actual air to air fights are better avoided unless mandatory to have a chance to finish the missions. Fun fact, I'm pretty sure the final mission of AC5 was inspired by one of this game's missions where you also have to save a city from a falling giant satellite by shooting its "wings" off.
- Graphics : I'm not exactly familiar with the graphics capabilities of the dreamcast, but it looked pretty good in my opinion, I liked how the plane textures were stylised rather than completely realistic.
- Story : You get a big star-wars like lore dump at the beginning and then a few elements dropped in during briefings. The execution is pretty sloppy, for example, you learn who the big bad is right before the final mission where you face him in a duel, whithout even knowing there was a big bad to begin with. The entire story is like this, with things dumped in front of you right before the relevant mission, it feels made up along the way.
- Music : Very arcadey, I kinda liked it. Though it wasn't as good as AC2's ost.

Air force Delta Storm :
- Gameplay : It's not bad overall, but the controls are cluncky, you feel like flying an airliner rather than a fighter jet most of the time. It alleviates some of the first entry's issues like bad missile tracking and overmaneuverable ennemies but barely. It's still much harder than any AC title. It also has this sort of "campaign map" with minor missions to play if you want to reach you main missions, with a grand total of two(2) copy pasted mini missions in slightly different maps at every minor checkpoints. Though some main missions have interesting level design, the final mission for example is literally the Star Wars six's attack on the Death Star two's reactor but with jets.
- Graphics : I'd say average for the OG Xbox, the game lacks a proper cockpit view but the incredible plane diversity makes up for it. Speaking of which, there are a lot of fictionnal fighter designs, some of them pretty goofy, but most are extremely cool looking and competently made. It's a shame there isn't a proper model viewer or display mode to admire them, the best you get is the replay mode which has a wierd striped filter making it hard to see clearly what's going on.
- Story : It's the apocalypse, two factions are at war over basic necessities and you're fighting for one of them, you win at the end. That's it. There are no characters, no story elements, nothing, you just fight and win the war. It's okay, I don't always need intricate conspiracies, character dramas and reflections about the nature of war and the human condition in my plane game. It just makes some missions extremely funny like one where you need to sink an ennemy fleet in a port while being careful about not hitting cruise ships. No world ending woe will slow down the cruise industry apparently.
- Music : Very unremarkable, even a bit obnoxious sometimes. You can rapidly get tired of hearing a generic electric guitar riff when epicly completing minor_mission_02 for the 65451th time in order to get where you need to go.

Air force Delta Strike :
- Gameplay : At this point, it's literally just ace combat gameplay, maybe a bit more nervous and responsive, which honestly I'm not complaining about. The plane diversity is incredible inkeeping with the serie's tradition, ww2 prop planes, cold war relics, modern jets, (many) prototypes (some of them so obscure I didn't even know about their existence), vtols, space fighters etc. As for the missions... where do I start ? How about fighting VTOLs and railway tanks in a giant cyberpunk metro network with a P-51 Mustang ? How about dogfighting gundams during a huge star-wars like space battle onboard a Mig-29 with a mini spaceship duck taped under it ? Or maybe a canyon mission where an evil scientist tries to kill you with an array of comically large fans ? I could go on and on, there are so many wild and wacky missions in between more tame and generic stuff to give you some room to breathe. Side note, there is a space elevator arc so uhh... take that AC7 ? The game's difficulty has reached a managable balance, but it's still overall harder than ace combat. Inbetween missions the game functions almost like a visual novel, it's pretty confusing and you can even get a game over for not knowing what to do, so I highly recommend following a guide to avoid needless frustration.
- Graphics : It's quite a bit below it's contemporary, AC5, in overall quality, but the level designs are often great. The general aesthetics is : generic gundam anime, with designs ranging from hilariously goofy to suprisingly cool. The entire non-mission part of the game is a 2D visual novel format with character designs that are pretty high quality and diverse. Although many designs are uh... cultured. More on that in the character section. There is finally a cockpit view in this entry of the series, for which they went pretty hard, with all of the many aircrat having detailed interiors. The plane's liveries are many and all cool looking in my opinion so that's also a plus.
- Story : This entry finally has a story, and oh boy what a story. The Earth democracy "not the USA" people are at war with the dictatorial evil space people who are secretly controlled by an alien god on Mars. The plot mainly revolves around the characters, with varying level of interest from the narration, but who's concept and behavior makes them wierdly unique and memorable. The story has a few different endings and branching storyline depending on what character you play, how often you play them and also some missison requirements, again, I advise following a guide. It's nothing mindblowing or complex but it certainly is striking, bold and memorable.
- Characters : Yes, I'm adding a section for characters because I can't not talk about them. There are the good guys you play as, delta squadron, composed of : Shredded pixy tomboy Ruth Valentine, Generic MC with sad backstory™ Ken Thomas, Cringe edgelord furry John Rundal (With the most hilarious dialogues in the game), Geriatric ww2 larper Jamie Jones, Funny anime fat man Rick Campbell, Double cheeked up fantASStic dumptruck owner Alex Levine, Divorced dad Holst Prendre, Rejected Jojo character Pedro Glankert, litteral child soldier Brian Douglas, incompetent but rich trust fund kid David Smith and his bimbo gold digger twin wingwomen Collette and Constance Le Clerc. Delta's officiers are : Captain clueless boomer Robert Williams, Staff Officer loli but she's a genius lab experiment kid so it's not creepy I swear Lilia Mihajlovna and operator wholesome overworked MILF office lady Amelia Johnson. There's also the chainsmoking alcoolic mechanic Bob Takayanagi and the totally legit and thrustworthy plane seller Harry Garrett. Finally there are the bad guys, early antagonist and supposedly invincible ace pilot who you just bully in every mission he appears in "Emperor" Sergei Kinski, Giuseppe Ferretti... thats it, Slimy starscream backstabber ugly bastard Leon Kleiser, iamverysmart escapee Donald Chan, Generic rival of the MC Albert Ungar, the MC's brainwashed waifu Ellen McNichol (Who you can turn back to your side if you shoot her down enough while playing as Ken. Make of that what you will.), big tiddy tanned gyaru tomboy noblewoman Francine Davout and her boytoy butler Jake Emerson, bratty femboy supersoldier Pierre Gallo and alien with a god complex "Navigator".
- Music : Unremarkable but servicable, not bad by any means but I doubt any will get stuck in your head... not for good reasons at least.

Project Wingman :
- Gameplay : It's pretty much Ace Combat but I mean... that's kind of the point. Also it's not a straight out copy, there are cool innovations and most important of all, it's very well done and fun to play. I should also mention, I have finished the entire campaign in VR and by the dust mother is it intense. The cockpits are extremely well done and immersive, being at the heart of such overwhelming action in VR is just something else. As for the missions, they're all fun, diverse and with good level design. Finally, the plane diversity is very good for such a small team working on detailed models with cockpits and multiple liveries, not counting the innumerable non graphic aspects.
- Graphics : I had to remind myself that this was an indie game, because appart for a few minor gliches here and there it's honestly incredible what they did whith what they had to work with. The fictional designs all look cool and very inkeeping with the Ace Combat theme. The effetcs were the most impressive, although they did go a bit wild with the whole orange magic energy near the end of the game, my retinas are still recovering.
- Story : Again, very faithful to what an Ace Combat story would be. Mercenaries, superweapons, conspiracies, war bad, and of course, insane characters (Special mention for Prez and Crimson 1). Also the lore is prettry expensive, the AC hommage did go as far as writing an entire alternate universe for your plane game. Overall it's well told, I like it.
- Music : Music is hard to make, music is expensive to make, but again, for an indie game, they managed to pull off something good. It's not the grandiose earporn fest that most Ace Combat are, but it's the best they could do and it's pretty neat. Also the sound design was another impressive aspect, big attention to details and lots of quality effects that really suprised me, specially in VR.
(PS : There is conquest mode, how neat is that ? It does wonders for the replayability of the game.)

This concludes my recorded journey through the skies, it was one hell of an experience and I hope I managed to convey some of it through this post. As for me, I will continue to play flight sims I haven't tried but outside of this marathon format. I have Star Wars Squadron, VTOL VR, Warplanes VR (ww1/2) and DCS lined up, I think I'll even give VR chat flight sim a shot, I've heard they've got some suprisingly great stuff over there. I'm not about to touch ground any times soon.
In the meantime, fly safe(ish) and see you in the skies !

2023.03.24 01:57 bey0nd_repair Is there a type of therapy that helps you as a parent?

I went to therapy for 5 years for C-PTSD, the goal was to help me be a better parent as I started to have flashbacks just as I became a Dad.
My daughter is now 5 and has ASD level1. She was always sensitive from birth, she is a mirror of me with that HSP profile. She has a couple of very obvious pre-verbal/sensory PTSDs to me and a separation incident when she was 2. It presents as a fear of my voice if it isn't a happy/bright playful voice. I cant be sad, frustrated or directive with her without triggering her into a melt down/flight/fight response. The other presentation is really bad separation anxiety.
Therapy went wrong for me and I left abruptly which broke me.
I came up with an approach to help me get out of the nonstop flashbacks I was left stuck in. I was also extremely frustration at talking about all these challenges as it played out yet, nothing changed or helped and here I am, a kid broken by me being her Dad. All therapists I try to engage since just say reframe, you only need to get 33%, there is no such thing as disorganised in children, its never the parents, you're the most self critical person Ive met be kind to yourself etc...
Well what if it is the parent? When the unconscious has become conscious you either accept or change, I need to change not re-frame or accept as that further harms my daughter.
I ended up building my own modality and becoming my own psych, learning all the concepts and bastardizing them. I figured we have a disorganised attachment, heal that and most her challenges will pass but first I have to get her out of the trauma brain stem and that is why nothing has worked so far. We can't do it together as I'm a source of her fears, the family all on eggshells trying not to trigger each other from the stress of the environment.
Wim Hoff/Cold therapy and Stephen Porges/Safe and Sound protocol worked for that. She stopped grinding her teeth in her sleep, stopped ruminating and asking the same question 50 times when she was anxious. Clothes have stopped itching, her body sensation awareness improved, her attachment system opened up and made a few friends, held space and didnt freeze in the playground around other kids.
We did Aletha Solters attachment play concepts and I made a child version of Dan Browns 3 pillar approach, an explore plan of more group activities, OT and activities to improve her meta-congative awareness, and me using attachment concepts and play to be the perfect parent, mixing in concepts like love languages and other psych's work like Bruce Perry. What was amazing was my Daughter started to ask to play the exact games in Aletha's books for each challenge she faced and started mashing them together building more and more complex themes. Her separation anxiety is 90% gone, she walks into a new school without a care in the world on the 2nd day. She is just left with this fear of my voice and us rupturing. Her new teacher doesn't believe us when we told them she was ASD, there are only very subtle signs where she now needs to develop areas that she didn't get to and a higher than normal anxiety/inner critic.
For her fear of my voice Im using a concept from how to talk to kids books and DBT. We sat together and drawed out her morning routine then timed her on a good day and drew a clock next to each task with the number of minutes shaded e.g. 7-7:15 food, 7:15-7:20 clean teeth get dressed. I just silently point at the picture instead of instructing her to hurry up, avoiding me triggering a meltdown making her late for school. Agreed that if I have to tell her not to do something, I will pick her up and hold her as I do it so she knows I am not triggered.
She would hide pain if she suddenly hurt herself, I used introspective awareness concepts and DBT describe concept via drawing what happened when she hurt herself. She now cries but has to blame me first to feel safe. I'll take it, she is hurting inside because of me, I need to hold that anger from her, not reject it to protect myself make her feel safe letting it out again and again until she trusts me. I have to suck it up and deal with how that makes me feel and what ever trauma onion layer it triggers within me.
I sit on an exercise ball and bounce when watching over her play, if I zone out I almost fall off, I'm teaching her to swim so I have to watch over her non stop. She gets to look up and see me watching over and delighting instead of in my head, zoning out around her. We go to a trampoline park and jump and regulate together that way, just like a kid does.
For food sensitivities, I noticed she was in fight/flight, picking at it but looking at me in the corner of her eye. So I asked if she was scared I would be upset if she didn't eat it or was there something she was worried about. She said yes so I told her I will leave the room to make her feel safe. Mum then attuned to her fear made her feel safe, set the boundaries around cooking different food and the reasons then offered to either eat it herself or they could play like a baby and Mum will be a robot spoon feeding her (regression play) It worked, the next new meal my daughter paused started to look uncomfortable, turned to me and asked me if I would spoon feed her it, we laughed through the meal and she told me to pretend to throw it in her face if she is too slow. (I must of rushed her in the past! she is so empathic and sensitive she didnt want to upset me) now she just asked to be spoon fed by me if she is unsure and sometimes she might just leave it after a few tries but other times she enjoys it then will eat it alone the next time. Taking on all her own healing!
Thing is, its hard and exhausting coming up with this. I was a homeless teen... I'm not better of alone... I need someone to guide me through the chaos like I didnt get as a kid...
I've tried talking to a number of psycholgoists and they just seem terrified, "I cant comprehend how you even thought to do any of this and mash it together", "I feel very intimidated sitting opposite you and the amount you have read on these topics", "Its very pretty and professionally put together" (I made a presentation will all the concepts, the results and how each ASD behavior matched to a mistake I had made and the matching psych concept as I got sick of being told to reframe and that it is never the parents)
I get Therapist don't give advice, yet they have all the knowledge on the concepts at play. I wasted 5 years in therapy, in 4 months Ive achieved so much more with this type of approach (I use a similar 'practical' therapy on myself and no longer dissociated, using reflexes to bring me back out of the brain stem when I need to, attaching to myself and giving myself the attachment needs, delighting in myself that I am able to come up with this nonsense etc. and help my daughter how I have) If I had done this 2+ years ago after her separation trauma, her development would be a lot less impacted, there would be less to catch up. Hell there were signs from birth that she was probably in fight/flight. Her neruo pathways were still growing then and would have been less impacted.
Is there any kind of therapy where someone would work through these type of parental challenges and help me come up with actual practical solutions to try out like Ive been coming up with? This will be a long challenge healing us with new things that will come up.
If not are there any good books/material that I should read? These are some I have found great

Eye Contact
Started while visiting my mom at the General Hospital. I was walking down the hallway. Ready to drive home. Ready for my second week of work. I just locked eyes with someone. No smiles. No sound. She was talking with some nurses, talking and giggling, when suddenly we locked-eyes. She stopped talking. I kept walking but the eye-contact didn’t break until I’d walked past them. Ambiguous. Didn’t mean to do it. Spoke to her later, turned out she was the social worker, very friendly lady. The eye-contact thing wasn’t brought up. I would’ve been the one that had to bring it up. I understand that now. Yet I choose not too. Can’t complain.
Happened again while picking up some limes for a friend I’d made at the Rehab center that my mom was in. Same phenomena.
Oracular Chain
Got told to start wearing a crucifix round my neck. Got told my own head will be the primary cause of my misfortunes and that stupidity isn’t that bad. Got told that I need to fix my sleep and get bloodwork done, possible anemia.
Being told to be careful with your thoughts, that your head would be the source of your misfortunes, thoughts twisting the paths ahead.
Is the kind of warning that provokes you to the thing it is warning you against. Easy to spiral.
It’s so easy to just tumble in. Falling down a World of Infinite Spiral Staircase.
The rocks are the rocks.

I don’t like talking or writing about work. I’m genuinely a dumb ogre. Dumb and friendly. Sanguine. When the blood pumps, when I’m in motion, when I’m around people. I get bored easily. After I’d gotten my rhythm I was confronted by profound boredom. After peak season when I couldn’t just get a pallet of non-cons and disappear into the depths of the warehouse. Walking and glowering and thinking and smiling and nodding and lifting and scanning and singing and hiding the arousal aroused by thoughts of her, for hours. When that momentarily stopped being the case, the boredom led me to consider shirking my duties. The boredom brought me to an acute awareness of how nothing I am wandering through these huge machineries. Whirring.
Two things helped.
Treating my time at work as a workout and the people.
I don’t like writing about work because I haven’t figured out how to not make it self-aggrandizing. The humble-brag concealing a profound sense of dread. That you should read in my series of blinks and raps, an S.O.S… I’m gonna die in this place.
That he should retreat from first-person to third.
That he should find such a pure joy in being told first by an older gentleman, “you’re the only person who doesn’t seem to be scared of boxes” and by an older lady, “you’re the only man who does this.” What joy he feels whenever he’s summoned to a lane jammed up by heavy boxes and how suddenly the other men, seeing him stunting, power-zone activated and toes-before-nose, join in.
What joy when one of the women or older men compliment his work. Say “this guy works good, he’s awesome.” Or better yet, when one of them comes over and says, “hey take it easy, don’t kill yourself for this company.” Their concerns fuels me to work with even greater vigor and exquisite technique.
He feels so proud of the fact that he has become that guy. The one they look to get to do stupid reckless heavy shit. He knows but he doesn’t care. Fuck it. It’s fun. Child of Agayu. Long stride power walking barely coherent when he opens his mouth. When words are forced out of the permagrin. Doom-driven.
That trembling he should proclaim, “I’m ready to fucking DIE!!” and “I’m willing to die for this shit!” between gritted teeth. Eliciting laughter but likewise picking the energy up. It’s strange how evoking an Absurd Death seems to get the blood pumping.
Before work proper, the managers give a run down of the days activity. The volume (ranging from 30,000 to 60,000) and generic health and safety tips (he relishes when they add “please don’t throw heavy boxes over your shoulder”, what is arguably his signature move). At the end they do a little rallying thing.
“Team on me… Team on 3… 1…2..” type of shit. This is the moment we all revenge ourselves on them.
The imbecile. When a young manager announces the volume and whether or not we can do it in the allotted-time (without having to flex up meaning add an extra hour).
“Can we do it?”
He roars,
Then pretends he was doing it ironically. His coworkers know though. They don’t seem to mind that much. He doesn’t care if they’re laughing at him. As long as they feel the energy. As long as the blood pumps. It’s shocking how at first people laugh and then through the laughter proceed to join in. Like they need an excuse to care.
Fuck being a slacker. Fuck that shit.
“Thank you sir.” The young manager says addressing him directly.
Still he refuses to volunteer for extra-time. He’ll pick-up shifts at home. 16 to 30 hours. Needs to start saving money and dealing with debts. It isn’t enough. Rent went up. Things are going to get bad. Perhaps he should consider volunteering. Luckily the orange-vests and red-vests crackup as they approach him, knowing he’ll say no, still the imbecile apologizes, they don’t guilt or neg him into staying, they can already see it on his face. The smile is gone.
The smile is gone when his left arm goes numb and his ring finger begins to twitch. Or when it feels like a bad air is trapped between his shoulder-blade and chest and he can feel a dull ache. He feels ashamed mentioning it. Doesn’t have anyone to talk too about it and if he did he wouldn’t. Just a matter of question of pacing and regulating caffeine consumption. He realizes he’s an idiot. Starts slowing down a little. Making sure to take his bathroom breaks every other hour. Pulling out his phone, he rifles through social media to see if she had posted anything new, barring that he gazes at past selfies, giving himself over to revelry.
Material conditions have made Lenten fasting come natural. Didn’t even realize he was doing it. Still has to make sure to eat. Two bananas cut up, probiotic yogurt, three tablespoons of cacao powder, teaspoon of sugar, and some wheat. Delicious and energizing smoothie that promotes mental clarity and physical rejuvenation.
They ask but he worked his hours and he’s done. Fuck that shit.
I need to go home, Drink gatorade. Drink a liter of water. Eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or some leftovers. Drink an extra 5 hour energy. Drink some more pre-workout and start banging away at the keyboard. I don’t actually want to die here. It’s going on 4 months now. I stare at the draft I’ve been working on for 2 months. It’s 5am I hear my parents waking up. Don’t want to worry them. I turn off the lights and go to sleep.
I’d be lying if I said I hated work. I couldn’t see myself working the service industry proper. Brute-labor though. I dislike how much I like it. Getting paid to workout. Isn’t enough to really help out around the house. Besides not being such a fucking drag. Besides being able to refuse my mom’s help. Being able to buy my own stuff. When I stop being Seasonal (a nothing person) I’ll start working my 40 hours or hopefully can boost up to 80. So I can purchase and patronize things and not feel like an absolute scumbag.
Finding speech difficult. Find writing difficult. I'm interacting but I catch myself, distorted, between the mannerisms I intend and what I actually perform, like I'm dancing offbeat. Not always. Not at first. Manage to make some people laugh. Manage to have some good conversations.
Become something of a routine. At the start of my day I’ll say to myself “Ah I have enough UPT, fuck it I think I’m just gonna take the day off,” or “I’ll clock-in and clock-out at 10:30pm” and I’ll console myself in the lead up to work by thinking these things. By repeating them. Until I find myself slipping the steel-toed boots on, making sure I have everything I need, kissing my parents, and taking my mom’s car to work.
I like my coworkers.
Only really let loose about two or three times.
Middle-aged long and thin bespectacled dude, great smile, studied informatic science in Cuba. Looks like the grandchild of a Chinese migrant worker. Started making conversation with me. We were both staging. Circling one another, pallet-jacks in-hand. Asked why I was working there. Surprised I could converse in Spanish, told me I looked like a European. Didn't expect for me to be Cuban-American. Kept seeing him. Working nightshifts. Making small-talk. Good energy. One of the first people who started talking to me. Gave me some tips. Found the cobwebs blowing away. Dude has a youtube channel where he talks about hacker-stuff and tech and apps. Showed me an app he was working on. Asked me about the word abashed. He asked me about that word after I decided to open up about my "thesis" and my encounter with a Scientologist at the GNC (got into purchasing and drinking pre-workout, Woke AF blue flavored, my skin has long stopped feeling tingly)... How the cashier asked me visualize my favorite animal (though it's not my favorite animal I visualized a leopard) and how he had asked me to stare at the back of my head. I gave my work-friend a Hegelian critique of Scientology/Dianetics and my overall impressions. Spoke to him of the Law of the Unity of Opposites, of the Identity of Identity and Difference, of Dialectics, and Kojève and other such things. I wish my Spanish had betrayed me as it had whenever I'd speak to the pretty Spanish-speaking women. But it didn't. Ended up making of it a little exercise. Softly singing to myself the lyrics of, There is a Light that Never Goes Out by The Smiths as I went about scanning packages and building pallets. Easily enthused. Hadn't had the chance to translate my thesis. Think I might have freaked him out. Wired look in his eyes. Think I might have tapped a latent schizo-nerve. Still super friendly whenever we see one another. Remembers my name. Just doesn’t make it a point to drag me along. Stopped projectile word-salading at my coworkers after that.
It’s liberating. To confine my ruminations and Opus to letters and clandestine online activity.
The other friend. Zoomer. Thin, goatee, curly-hair chestnut hair, round eyes. Gorgeous dude. Instantly took a liking to one another as well. Also met him while staging. Majors in computer science. We’d cross paths while travailing through the warehouse. Shooting random cultural references to see what would stick. Eventually Cronenberg stuck. Told me about Cronenberg’s kid’s movie. Asked me about my “thesis”. Quickly told me he didn’t understand what the fuck I was talking about. Simplified. Seeing that he’s a Zoomer, sociable, and into computers and weird fiction stuff. I asked him his thoughts about Urbit. We make it a habit to Kubrick stare at one another or mumble bullshit (“Get back to work” “This fucking guy”) or play chicken with one another while dragging very heavy-things and it’s always hilarious.
Another Zoomer friend, mousey dude who always rocks a skullcap and either a Texas Chainsaw Massacre shirt or some band shirt that incorporates Lain from Serial Experiment Lain. Drove him home a couple of times. Loves Morrisey and Deftones. First time I put on the playlist. Excited. I thought to introduce him to the Japanese band Coaltar of the Deepers. He told me he loved that band. Loved the album ‘Yukari Telepath’ and I loved him. Happily I drove him home. On the way. There is a crossroads in the warehouse district, stop sign for us, no stop sign for intersecting road. Smashing down on the breaks, almost drove us in front of a speeding 18-wheeler. We laughed.
“To die by your side well the pleasure, the privilege is mine.”
Got left by his parents in Mexico for a month when he was a kid, without warning.
Zoomers are cool but kind of weird. Powerful yearning bubbling beneath refracted from their own expressions. The gorgeous one, feels like he has a rough-shape of someone he considers cool that he wants to fill in. There is a certain pain made visible whenever he doesn’t get a particular cultural reference. Still he’s recommended some pretty cool stuff. Pretty cool movies I haven’t got around to watching yet. The mousey one is super staccato. Has some problems socializing. Stop-and-start it’s rare for him to get into a conversational flow.
The mousey one I’d met during break. 4 hours, 15 minute break.
11:30pm have to be in at 11:45pm. Company has a smoking box outside. First day I went to smoke in it but two ladies smoking weed asked me not too, so I took that as license to smoke on the schoolyard lunch tables off to the side. It’s undignified to be confined to a little box. I want to be out in the open. Huffing away. Pulling out my phone, I rifle through social media to see if she posted anything, barring that I gaze at past selfies, giving myself over to revelry. Once I’d finish smoking I’d rush in, through the revolving doors and into the lunchroom to get a 5 hour energy or a Java Monster Nitro Cold Brew and a bit of complimentary gatorade.
Finicky with time. Nobody stop me.
If at 11:45pm you aren’t back at your workstation, the managers might scan your badge and give you a warning. Three of those and you’re out. If you get fired from one thing you’re fired from all connected things which ends up being a surprisingly large amount of things. Worse some of the managers are into scolding the associates. I’d rather avoid having to swallow the sort of feelings that would’ve otherwise propelled me to punch a hole through someone’s skull.
One motherfucker in particular. I like to call El Patron. Severe-looking motherfucker. Looks like his great-grandfather use to chop the arms off peasants in the hacienda. That motherfucker loves trying people. Absolute prick. Everybody hates him.
One time after 3 and a half hours of doing pick-off/splitting (priding myself in making sure the C-boxes go into the C-lane, I go above and beyond, “goddamn dude you’re sweating” “don’t break your back for Amazon” I’M DOING IT FOR ME, I yell) and this sour fuck asks me to go scan packages (after mismanaging the fuck out of everything, leading to their being avalanches of packages, including heavy boxes that should’ve gone to the non-con megatron) they’d flexed us up. It was 12:56am already. High volume day. The lady I was working with the whole shift only speaks Spanish. I translated what was happening, letting her know that I was gonna start scanning, that it was a pleasure working with her. This fucking guy looks up at me, says to me, “what’s the issue? Didn’t you hear me? Didn’t I ask you to go scan?” I imagined myself doing horrible things to him. He’s old but not old enough for my default affection, he’s young but not young enough for default comradery. Perfect age really. Perfect grabbing him by the sides of the head and smashing it repeatedly against the railing -age.
Tired, I smiled and nodded, scanner in hand. Did he not see the person standing in front of him? Maybe it’s cause he saw the exhausted thing in front of him that he felt so emboldened. Still I’m imbued with Longhouse Frustration and Warehouse Strength.
My eyes stung. I scanned my badge and took the UPT hit.
The following day an elderly man I was working with consoled me. Told me not to lose my head. That we can’t let them cross-the-line, we have to slam the breaks on em, but that we have to do things smart. Gave me some examples. I felt much better after that.
I suppose what shames me isn’t that I should feel the sudden surge of anger or even that I should seethe about it. This kind of frustrated indignation is normal. What really shames me is that the manager gives me a certain kind of vibe. That if I would’ve slapped his arm and held my hands out, he would’ve leaned in and whispered, “I know where there aren’t any cameras.” But I didn’t want to take the risk. This fucking job is fast becoming an integral part of keeping a roof over our heads. I can't afford to be "promoted to customer" as one witty piece of shit put it. Low-trust society.
We’re all tired.
But yea I avoid getting scolded. I get deep ugly indignant feelings that I’m not going to act on. Knowing I won’t act on them I’d rather navigate around them rather than have them linger and become something I have to breath through and talk-shit through. I don’t want to be a thing that just talks shit either. Feels undignified. Like putting a curse on someone you could just slap across the face or better still confront verbally. Ideally I would’ve snapped and wagged my finger, “hey not like that with me.” But I didn’t so tough titty.
I met the Mousey Zoomer during breaktime. Part of a trio. At first I’d see them from afar. Wave. Dap em up or nod. Eventually I got integrated in their break group and we started working together.
The other two are also cool as fuck. Another Zoomer and an Older Millennial
The other Zoomer is Italian-Belarusian American with sharpie-red hair and a bunch of cool tattoos, they were the first of the gang to reach out to me. Eventually asking to bum a cig. I obliged and was integrated. Super based person. Their dad had them when he was old as fuck. Taught them the value of work and the sacrality of vodka. Loves talking about Geopolitics and Warhammer. Haven’t seen them in a minute. Took two weeks off. Was the only one that talked about hanging out and drinking/smoking after work.
The older Millennial’s a short bald dude with a magnificent black beard and sultan-mustache. New Yorker. Not really from New York he’s from New Jersey but he worked construction in New York. Love Wu-Tang and has a prodigious memory when it comes to movie quotes. Wife is expecting a child. Normally vapes. Asked for a cig once. He proceeded to perform an elaborate ritual. Smooth series of gestures. Squeezing down on the trunk of the cig with his index and thumb. With his other hand he flicks the filter, pushing the cigarette up. He does this multiple times. Slides the cig between his mustache and nose. Pantomimes puffing it like a cigar. My eyes’ roll back. Pure bliss. He’s been seared into my heart. Filed under “Cool Older Cousin.” I guffaw. He started opening up after I’d made him laugh. When I leaned in and muttered, “so what do you think about the whole Azerbaijan and Armenia conflict.” Only cares about getting paid he said. Dude works like an animal.
Met another New Yorker, from the suburbs. Bug-eyed 70 year old dude with a French-braid. First encountered him macking on the HR lady. Has the kind of name I can’t help but yell out whenever I see. Likes smoking cigarillos. Like working with him as well. Sometimes he’ll come to work, super happy, sauntering, and I know. Like to talk about movies and shows and New York with him.
Had a little civilizing experience. Before work started him, the Gorgeous Zoomer, and I had huddled up. Started talking about movies and actors that had disappeared from the public eye. Mentioned Brendan Fraser. I brought up The Whale,
“Yea Brendan Fraser plays a fat guy.”
The Zoomer laughed but buddy wore a sullen expression. Mentioned he couldn’t bring himself to watch the movie cause his older sister, who was morbidly obese, recently passed away. I would’ve never been this blasé if I was describing The smile disappeared from my face. Didn’t know how to respond to that.
Both of us got assigned to the linear. Eventually I looked over at him and apologized for my blasé description of the movie. He looked so relieved. Told me how her passing had forced him to reckon with his own mortality. Eyes watery. Felt like hugging him. The younger New York dude was working the linear too. We started talking about shows we’re watching while scanning shit while zooming through the gaylord grid. I’m not watching anything. The New Yorker Boomer’s watching the new Sylvester Stallone series, Tulsa Kings. The Millennial just finished watching the Wu-Tang series and just now started watching Squid Games. Mentioned Squid Games to the older one and he says to me, “nah you know I worked with a lot of Japanese people and I know they’re into that kind of stuff, treating each other those kinds of ways, but I don’t know I’m not into that…” I felt like hugging him again.
Manager swooped in and told me to go pick up Heavy Boxes.
One time it was raining and it was cold. “Just like New York,” he said with that little charming New York twang.
“Like the beaches in New York. Dark water. Step out of the ocean even in the middle of the Summer with your lips blue from how cold the water is. Not like Miami.”
“Yea even during the winter. The water is warm. Plunging your head beneath the waves, enveloped in warmth.”
“Yea we call it piss water. New Yorkers love coming down to Miami to dive into the piss water.”
“I prefer to think of it as like amniotic fluid.”
“That too, yea.”
“You know when I imagine New York I think like… you have to actively tilt your head up, in order to see the sky. Super atmospheric.”
“I mean yea when you’re in the city. I lived in the suburbs but I’d go to work in the city. Some people actually live there.”
“Have you ever seen the movie Dark City?”
“No what’s it about.”
“City stuck in perpetual night…”
He didn’t let me finish my description or even get to the plot synopsis.
“You know New York isn’t that dour. There’s a park right in the middle of it. It’s called Central Park, lots of trees and nature, you can see the sky.”
I felt like planting a kiss on his forehead.
The key to constructing a good pallet is to use the boxes labeled 'Heavy' as a foundation. Laying them in the corners and then building inwards. The small packages, the lightweight plastic and paper-envelope packages are the most annoying ones to deal with. Sometimes we don't have the long cardboard boxes needed to keep the small packages in check. Still some people don’t give a fuck. They just throw them and put small boxes on-top of them and then when a heavy box comes down the belt they don’t take the time to remove the small packages and place the heavy ones as a foundation. They just scan and toss. The pallet becoming increasingly precarious. Proper workplace hazard. When I approach such a pallet with a heavy box I find myself having to reconstruct the whole thing. At first I did this by myself. Then one day a gang of women I’d initially been intimidated by, swept in and started helping me. This brings a great feeling of warmth.
The people make it worth it. That over the course of two months I’ve become familiar enough to greet, dap, side-hug, and smile at, a majority of my co-workers. That I should feel warm submerged in our shared breath. Conspiring together between steel, plastic, and cardboard.
Warehouse Dreams
I was a Hell with someone else and was forced to get a job. Hell was perpetual night, gloomy, and urban. No wandering. All movement confined to grids. People just existed. Dingy apartment. Going to work. Nothing else to do. Banal. There was a sense of relief that it wasn't as bad as I'd expected. A bit of giddiness. Only space was between us and the high ceiling of the warehouse. The demonic managers had a certain cheeriness to them. All the workers dressed in jumpsuits and overalls. We stood at attention as the peppy demonic manager gave us the rundown for the day's work.
I had too crawl beneath a conveyor belt that was one in a field of conveyor belts. Some danger. Someone I knew and had stopped talking to in life, appeared, and helped me out. Pulling a thing loose. Screwed something in. He remained sullen. Though lending me a hand his expression was bitter and I was awkward. My grievance with him in life was legitimate but his kindness had deflated whatever residue of that was left. I made to address our quarrel, the specter of the quarrel, to explain myself. But he crawled away returning to his own business dour.
An impish process assistant pulled me aside. Put a helmet on my head and handed me a bazooka. I was led outside the Warehouse City. Battlefield. Thick violet and mustard colored smog. A metallic ship peered through the smog. I shot at it. The missile was languid, leaving behind a trail of gray smoke, looping through the air it exploded behind the ship. The second time I shot at the encroaching vessel I didn’t miss.
Process assistant asked me to help out with something deep in the warehouse. I walked into its depths. Met a friendly, seemingly immortal couple, with a dark secret. Went about my task. From warehouse to a mountain trail (still in the warehouse). Idyllic Sunlit scenery. Walking next to a lake. Observing tire-marks going in and out of it. I knew it was one of the process assistants. The shore was very stony until it wasn’t. I approach a clearing. Pebbles rather than large rocks. A golf cart packed with sand and pondweed. I couldn’t see him but I knew the assistant was driving with poor visibility. I moved away from the trail and fell into the lake, the tide was fast approaching, I could’ve called out to the assistant but decided not to bother him while he was going about his task.
I dug my hands into the sand and pebbles. The water began rising. I understood that if I just held on, I would survive.

2023.03.23 22:19 ianthekorean_ [OC] What an Expanded 24-Team WBC Could Look Like

The 2023 World Baseball Classic came to a thrilling end on Tuesday with Japan taking the crown, and the tournament has been an undoubtable success in its ability to spread the popularity of baseball to a broader global audience. The MLB clearly knows this, and probably wants to expand the WBC so it can become a more global tournament. With the excitement of international baseball still fresh on people's minds, I wanted to try taking a stab at creating a viable format and schedule for an expanded, 24-team WBC for its 2026 iteration.
If you don't want to read all the explainer below, here's the TL;DR version of the whole spiel:

Expansion Qualifiers

Since 16 out of the 24 teams in the next WBC was already decided based on the results of this year's Group Stage, we will need to fill out the 8 remaining spots with the upcoming qualifiers.
Following the 2013 and 2017 WBC's qualification process, the 2026 WBC Qualifiers should take place in 4 groups of 4 teams in a double-elimination tournament, except this time TWO teams from each group qualify for the Group Stage. Although I personally believe a round-robin format is probably more appropriate, I am presuming that the organizers of the WBC Qualifiers have their own reasons (e.g.: logistics) for sticking to the double-elimination format.
I've seeded the qualifiers based on the most recent WBSC World Rankings as well as geographic considerations, with preference given to countries that have a prior history of playing in previous WBC Qualifiers:
Pool A (Asia) Pool B (Latin America) Pool C (EMEA A) Pool D (EMEA B)
Taiwan (Host) Nicaragua Germany (Host) Spain (Host)
China Brazil (Host) Belgium France
Pakistan Argentina Austria South Africa
New Zealand Colombia Ukraine Croatia

Group Stage (First Round)


For the First Round, the 24 teams will be split up into 4 groups of 6 teams each, where every group will have 4 teams that automatically qualified for the 2026 WBC and 2 teams that made it from the Qualifiers. The top FOUR teams of each group will qualify for the Second Round, and much like previous WBCs, the last-placed team in each group will be relegated down to the Qualifiers.
While one can certainly argue that 6 groups of 4 teams (like the Euro's Group Stage) is a better-suited format for a 24-team tournament, I believe the proposed format is better since it offers a more diverse array of matchups between different countries. As well, the increase in number of matches played in the Group Stage provides a larger sample size that should better reflect the skill level of each team, meaning there is a lower chance of standings being decided by ridiculous tiebreakers like Group A this year.
Speaking of tiebreakers, any ties in standings should be resolved by run differential (Team Quality Balance) instead of least runs allowed if head-to-head is not an option.

Host Cities

With each group now having 6 teams and 15 games to be played amongst each other, having all the group stage games in one venue is simply unviable given the constrained schedule of the tournament. As such, each group will now be hosted by two host stadiums, with what I believe are the most viable venue groupings listed below:

Tokyo, Japan and Fukuoka, Japan

With Tokyo Dome being an absolute lock because Tokyo Dome, I was debating between Fukuoka and Sapporo but ultimately went with Fukuoka, who have previously hosted the 2013 WBC Group Stage.
I personally prefer Sapporo over Fukuoka since they have the Sapporo Dome (Capacity: 42,270) and the newly-built Es Con Field (Capacity: 35,000), Fukuoka is probably a better location due to their warmer and not snowing March weather and better accessibility from other parts of Japan. That said, Toronto's Skydome Rogers Centre (Capacity: 41,500) has hosted the 2009 WBC Groups despite being a winter city, so you can certainly make an argument for Sapporo.

Taichung, Taiwan and Taoyuan, Taiwan

With Taichung and Taoyuan having the highest-capacity baseball stadiums in Taiwan, these two were going to be the obvious choices. Should the delay-plagued Taipei Dome finally be completed by this year as officials claim, however, the venue would replace Taoyuan as the second host venue.
But What About Korea?
Although it would be great to have Korea return as a WBC host, Seoul's Gocheok Sky Dome (Capacity:16,744), which last hosted in the 2017 WBC, feels too small to justify giving hosting rights to a growing tournament. More importantly, it is simply too cold to play outdoors baseball at March in Korea -- without another domed ballpark with a larger stadium capacity, Korea unfortunately doesn't seem viable as a host country. Thankfully though, there are plans to build more domed ballparks including a 35,000-seat domed stadium in Seoul and one in Incheon with at least 20,000 seats.
So while Korea will be missing out hosting rights for the 2026 WBCand probably knockouts too seeing how dogshit they've been the past three tournaments AAAAAAHHH I'm fine I swear , they should be considered as a host nation for future iterations of the tournament.

Phoenix, Arizona and San Diego, California

I don't think I need to do much explanation here -- both Pheonix and San Diego have an extensive history of hosting WBC games, and they have the added benefit of being close to Spring Training facilities and players.
If the tournament was to ever expand beyond 24 teams, it would be great if the MLB considered Seattle and Toronto as future hosts. With Seattle capturing the Canadian audience coming from Vancouver and Toronto covering the American crowd coming up from the Midwest and possibly the Northeast, the two cities would be a great opportunity to bring the WBC to the north.

Arlington, Texas and Houston, Texas

Probably the most wild selections in this list, I think Texas have been slept on as potential hosts for far too long, and with the expanded WBC, now is the perfect time to bring international baseball to the region. Houston and Dallas are both homes to some of the largest Hispanic and Latin American communities in the US, and there is no reason why Texas wouldn't be able to replicate the attendance levels seen in California.
But What About Miami or Latin American Cities?
A notable omission is Miami, which hosted the 3 previous WBCs including all stages of the 2023 WBC. Rest assured, LoanDepot Park (Capacity: 36,742) will be included in the later rounds. Although Miami would've also been great hosts for the group stages as demonstrated by this year's WBC, the city suffers from the same problem as Korea where they don't have a city with another domed stadium within its vicinity (and no, I'm not considering Tropicana Field (Capacity: 42,735 25,000) as an option). Whenever the Tampa Bay Rays decide to finally deal with their stadium issue, Miami and Tampa should be obvious locks as future hosts.
I know a lot of people wants to see Latin American cities come back as hosts, but I'd presume the MLB prefers hosting WBC in US cities with large Hispanic and Latino communities over hosting in Latin America since they're able to charge more per event in higher-capacity stadiums. That said, if the WBC were to return, there are no shortage of options available, namely Estadio de Béisbol Monterrey (Capacity: 27,000), Estadio Hiram Bithorn (Capacity: 18,264, Estadio Quisqueya (Capacity: 14,469), or even Estadio Alfredo Harp Helú (Capacity: 20,062) in Mexico City for some Coors Field-style chaos.


Unlike the FIFA World Cup, where teams are seeded based on FIFA Rankings, the MLB used the following criteria to determine the Team Rankings for each group in the 2023 WBC:
  • First, the Federation representing each Pool’s host country will be assigned.
  • Second, the team(s) that participated in the final four of the 2017 World Baseball Classic will next be assigned as top seeds for each Pool
  • Finally, the remaining teams will be assigned based on December 31, 2021, WBSC rankings in order to guaranteed competitive balance. Commercial, geographic and geopolitical considerations may also be applied to this process.
Basically, it's pretty much full of shit and almost completely up to the Commissioner's discretion. Regardless, I tried drafting up what the groups could possibly look like based on the criteria above:
Group A (Taiwan) Group B (Japan) Group C (PHX, SD) Group D (DAL, HOU)
Cuba (Final Four) Japan (Host; Final Four) Mexico (Final Four) United States (Host; Final Four)
Taiwan (Host; Qualifier #1) Netherlands Puerto Rico Venezuela
Korea Australia Canada Dominican Republic
Italy Great Britain Panama Israel
Czechia Qualifier #1 Qualifier #1 Qualifier #1
Qualifier #2 Qualifier #2 Qualifier #2 Qualifier #2
Note: For the purposes of this grouping, I assumed Taiwan would be able to make it through the 2026 WBC Qualifiers. In the extremely unlikely event that Taiwan fails to qualify, I would suggest Korea as alternate hosts for Group A.

Knockout Qualifiers (Second Round)


All three previous WBCs featured a Second Round after the group stages, where the remaining 8 teams were split into 2 groups of 4 to compete in a Double-Elimination Tournament (2009, 2013) or another Round Robin (2006, 2017). With the Second Round expanded to 16 teams, however, playing another 3 games on top of an expanded group stage may present some scheduling issues and probably draw the ire of MLB teams hoping avoid any player injuries from the tournament.
To resolve this issue, I propose using the "Play-In" Format used in the NBA Play-In Tournament, which works like a Double-Elimination Tournament but the bottom 2 teams are seeded into the Loser's Bracket and both finalists qualify. I recommend reading the linked article to get a better explanation on the format, but here is what a list of games in a bracket might look like:
  1. Group A #1 (Home) v. Group B #2 (Away) - winner advances to knockouts
  2. Group A #3 (Home) v. Group B #4 (Away) - loser eliminated
  3. Match 1 Loser (Home) v. Match 2 Winner (Away) - winner advances to knockouts; loser eliminated
As much as I would prefer to have another round of Round Robin for the Second Round, I believe the "Play-In" format is best-suited since each team only has to play an extra game or two compared to 3 additional games under a Round Robin format. As well, each group only needs to play 3 games in total which contrasts with 6 total games with Round Robin, which can go a long way in reducing the number of days required for this round in the constrained tournament schedule.

Host Venues

The list of hosts is basically a trimmed-down version of the Group Stage host venues, but with the addition of Los Angeles and Miami.


As a reminder, the top TWO teams of each group advance to knockouts.
Group E (Taichung) Group F (Tokyo) Group G (Los Angeles) Group H (Miami)
Group A #1 Group B #1 Group C #1 Group D #1
Group B #2 Group A #2 Group D #2 Group C #2
Group A #3 Group B #3 Group C #3 Group D #3
Group B #4 Group A #4 Group D #4 Group C #4

Knockout Stage

Similar to this year's WBC, the Knockout Stage is an 8-team Single-Elimination bracket, with the games and host cities listed below:
  1. QF: Group E #1 v. Group F #2 (Tokyo)
  2. QF: Group F #1 v. Group E #2 (Tokyo)
  3. QF: Group G #1 v. Group H #2 (Los Angeles)
  4. QF: Group H #1 v. Group G #2 (Miami)
  5. SF: Match 1 Winner v. Match 3 Winner (Los Angeles)
  6. SF: Match 3 Winner v. Match 4 Winner (Miami)
  7. Grand Finals (Miami)

Hypothetical Schedule

With all that said, here is what the 2026 WBC could look like under the proposed format:
As you can see, we would only have to add an extra week to the existing WBC schedule and still provide enough buffer room to give players time to rest up before Opening Day. The teams would be playing a maximum of 10 games, which is only a 3-game increase from the current WBC format.
What do you think? I would love to hear more about your thoughts on an expanded WBC! Rob Manfred please hire me

2023.03.22 21:48 haylicans [QCrit] Adult Contemporary Fiction ZEPHYR WINDS 85k words

Hello dear souls! Long long long time lurker who has taken notes from just about every QCrit posted here. Planning to query in September, but wanting to invest ample time in this process to refine the letter. I have personalizations written for the agents I'm eagerly waiting to open for submissions.
Open to the hard feedback, so let the gloves come off!
Dear [Agent],
ZEPHYR WINDS currently sits at 85k words in the third draft with the support of four beta readers. This book has the potential of being a trilogy with the prequel in it's first draft.
After the death of her husband in an avalanche in France and a subsequent relapse, Isadore returns to the skydive dropzone where they first met to focus on her grieving and sobriety with the support of their friends and community. Returning to Tahoe means confronting the demons she was running from, including the skydiving accident that led to her addiction five years earlier. Unable to be in the sky due to complex PTSD, Isadore takes a supportive role at the drop zone instead, helping people through their once in a lifetime experience while she pieces her after-life together again.
When the airport threatens to shut down the skydive operations due to an unrelated plane crash, the timely arrival of a Buddhist, an archivist, and an eclectic group of Pacific Crest Trail hikers shows Isadore how other people's stories can be mirrors to her healing and how our lives are more closely intertwined than we may realize.
ZEPHYR WINDS is based on the true story of my time living on the edge of a skydive dropzone in North Lake Tahoe with my partner. I have interviewed numerous skydive instructors for language and accuracy in the representation of this life changing sport. This book also highlights true stories working as a trail angel on the PCT, ended only by the devastating impacts of the Caldor Fire.
This book will appeal to readers who have been inspired by Cheryl Strayed, whether through Wild or Tiny Beautiful Things, with the thematic complexities of In an Instant by Suzanne Redfearn. ZEPHYR WINDS fills a niche that remains unoccupied in fiction, bringing the world of skydiving to readers in a way that reveals the depth and humanity of the sport beyond the action and adventure.
I am an award winning travel writer, editor, and performance poet. For two years, I have facilitated a memoir support group within the Author's Guild and previously served on the board of directors for the San Diego Memoir Association. While this is my debut fiction novel, this is my third completed manuscript.
I look forward to hearing from you.
With gratitude,

2023.03.22 20:56 IvorFreyrsson The Necromancer's Bond, Ch. 11

After a fair few rest stops, fuelings, and a short shopping trip to pick up provisions for the week, we arrived eight hours later at a fork in the road about ten minutes outside Newark, WV. Joaquin had actually spent most of the trip learning whatever English he could from the rest of us, instead of playing video games like I’d expected.
We all emerged from the car, stretched and looked around. Aside from the smattering of homes we had seen on the way, this place was about as empty of people as it could get.
Katira, clad in her usual baggy shorts, and even baggier T-shirt, took in her surroundings, closed her eyes and oriented herself to the southeast. “Over there a few hundred yards. There is a cave hidden there. I think the wards still hold, but this is the place we were,” she said confidently.
“Cool. What do we do about the car? Can’t leave it here. It needs to be off the road, and preferably hidden from view,” I said, looking around.
“I can take care of that, Master. Let’s find a level place to park it, and I will take care of the car,” she said with a nod.
“Okay. Back in, everyone. We will park, then lug everything to our home for the next week,” I said, clapping my hands.
With some groans, the rest of our troupe piled in, and I found a place to park about a quarter-mile away, a few hundred yards off the road. I snugged the car into a niche in a thicket, and we all got back out, removing our gear. I took the moment to affix my hunting knife to my belt. Spying some fallen branches and detritus, we hastily began to cover the car, hoping to add a little camouflage to the silver vehicle.
Katira took a good look over the car, and nodded her head, adjusting a limb or two here, a leaf there, adding some dirt over here, and stepped back.
“This is good. Is everything out? Once I create the ward, it will last for a maximum of ten days. Until we leave, none of us can touch it, or it will be dispelled. It will keep the local wildlife away, and discourage any investigation. The materials on it will stay put, unless there is an extremely strong storm, which the forecast has said are non-existent. Are we ready?” she asked. We all agreed, and she began casting the ward.
Watching a spell be cast was an extremely interesting thing. Katira stood still for a moment, then extended her hands, murmuring something in a language I couldn’t comprehend. She walked what looked like an erratic path around the thicket, but as she repeated it, I saw that she was stepping exactly in her previous footprints. To the millimeter. As she walked, I saw columns of light sprouting from the ground at five points, all curving inwards, converging in the center of the thicket.
After completing five complete revolutions, she stopped and faced the thicket, pulling her hands toward her body. She sliced a gouge into the back of her left arm with a fingernail, and scattered the blood into the area of the ward. The air shimmered, as if it were a mirage, and suddenly we simply couldn’t see the car anymore. Even though we were staring right at where it was.
Katira stepped back, panting. “There. That’s done. Master, I need a rest. Let’s get everyone loaded up, and I’ll take my place on your shoulder, okay?” she asked tiredly.
I nodded, and we began divvying everything up, giving myself and Robert the bulk of the heavy items. Once we were situated, Katira took her spot on my shoulder, and found it a safe place to simply sit and recover.
Together, the four of us Initiates walked off into a heavily wooded mountainside, following directions from my miniature familiar. Eventually, after navigating some tricky terrain, we came to a broad, flat area, with several spruce trees and a few fallen logs.
“This is it, Master. The cave is in the face of the rock there. Ten steps forward. Okay, reach out with your right hand, and feel around. It’s the best way I can describe what you’re going to be doing,” she said in my ear.
I stuck my arm out, placing my hand flat on the rock in front of me. Slowly, I dragged it across the rock face, finding nothing. I rubbed it up and down as high and low as I could, until I felt a kind of click inside me, and stopped my hand.
“That’s it, Master! Good job finding the right strand of the ward. Now, I want you to kind of ‘suck’ with your hand. Trust me. I know it sounds weird, but imagine you’re sucking in a super long spaghetto,” she said.
I shrugged and visualized a mouth in my hand, slurping up a giant sheet of…something. As soon as I began, I felt an odd creeping feeling crawl up my arm, winding around my bicep, then curling around my chest. As I continued, the feeling wound its way down my leg and, once it found the ground, I felt a thump within me as a cave was revealed right in front of my face.
“Excellent job, Master. I knew you could do it. Especially after seeing what you did at the Guildhall and learning what you did for Drake, I knew you could do the visualizations. Now, it’s just a matter of setting up the tents. You will find that the floor is firm soil, and as long as the mountain hasn’t shifted in the last several hundred years, there are some niches in the walls for our things,” she advised.
“Okay guys. Let’s go and get our camp set up. It’s wide enough for two tents abreast with plenty of room to get between them. Katira says there should be some niches in the walls for our things. Are you guys ready to start?” I said excitedly.
Three smiling faces met mine, and we all set up our tents. I placed myself in the rear of the cave, as I liked the cool and damp air. We stowed our various equipment in the niches, and looked around.
“Now what? Do you want to start tonight, or are we going to rest from the trip?” I asked Katira, who had resumed her size, and was sitting in a hollow in the wall, as if it were made for her, which, in all reality, it probably was.
“I think we should wait until the morning. This will be difficult enough without adding in the stress of a long journey. Also, Stu? Why don’t you take this time to familiarize everyone with Appalachian rules?” she suggested. Everyone turned to face me, curiosity etched across every face.
I shudder ran through me. I knew all the rules and the reasons behind them. They had been instilled within me at a very early age.
Somberly, I began, “Okay, everyone. I want you to listen carefully. The Appalachians are some of the oldest mountains in the world. They are older than bones. Literally. They are steeped in thousands and thousands of years of legends and lore, some of which is probably true. There is much more that we have simply lost to time. What I will tell you are the rules passed down to me from my mother’s family. They were all close to the land, going back generations. Here they are:
“Number one. If you hear something whistling in the woods at night, No you didn’t. There are things out there that will attract your attention by whistling. Do not acknowledge them. If you hear it, return to camp immediately. Do not run. Turn around, and come back at a calm pace.
“Number two. Do not under any circumstances whistle in the woods at night. This will attract things that we do not want to deal with. Drake? This concerns you, also. At night, do not whistle. Chirp if you must, growling is preferred, but do not whistle.
“Number three. If you see something moving in the trees, No you didn’t. As with rule one, turn around and walk back. Do not acknowledge it. Do not look at it. Come back.
“Number four. Don’t go alone. Especially at night. While we will probably have our familiars with us, this rule is serious. Do not be alone. That invites things and wild animals. Safety in numbers and all that.
“Number five. If you hear someone calling your name, No you didn’t. Those things I was talking about? They can mimic human speech. Not perfectly, though. There is always something that gives it away. You’ll just know. Trust me on that.
“Number six. This is a modifier for anything you hear. If it sounds close? It’s far off. If it sounds far away? It’s very close. It can see you, and is tracking you. They do this to either frighten you to run to them, or to entice you to follow the sound. I know it’s counterintuitive, but that’s how they work.
“Number seven. That deer you saw? Might not have been a deer. Do not go near it. If it is watching you, look elsewhere. Turn around and come back to camp.
“Number eight. Those aren’t lights. Stay away from them.
“Any questions? I will answer what I can.”
Joaquin raised his hand nervously. “What happen if I answer?”
“Good question. You will likely die,” I said bluntly. “By answering, you have alerted the thing to your presence, and it will hunt you. And by extension, all of us. There is no known way of hiding, no known way of warding these things off. Follow the rules. Especially if you hear someone speaking your language. I guarantee you that nobody here knows Portuguese or Japanese. Nobody,” I concluded.
“Okay, Stuart-senpai. I will not respond to voices in the woods. If I hear them, I will return. I will have my Oiwa with me at all times. I am ready,” Morita-san said confidently.
“Good! I’m glad to hear that. Robert? Any questions or concerns?” I asked the younger man.
“Do you really believe in all that old superstition stuff? I mean, none of it’s real. Right?” he asked.
“Not real, huh? You’re saying this while you’re standing in a cave with three other people -strangers, even- a total of four beings who can change their shape upon contact with a new Master, and a literal dragon. You want to maybe rethink that?” I asked.
“Not to mention you’ve already seen two examples of magic, Robert. You’re about to enter a world that is undoubtedly filled with crazier things than what you’ve seen so far. Open your mind a bit wider,” I said.
“Yeah. I suppose you’re right. But, do any of those things actually exist?” He asked.
I sighed softly. “Yeah, man. They do. I’ve heard my father calling for me out in the woods when he was asleep in the cabin next to me. His snoring was distinctive. When I said something about it the next morning, he was just glad I’d stayed put. Mom, however? She was extremely concerned, and had us leave that day. Since then, I’ve followed those rules to the letter. Please. Follow those rules. The mountains are ancient, and there are creatures, spirits and haints that have taken up residence here for eons. Things exist here, man. We do not want to run afoul of them. Treat the cave and the surrounding woods with respect,” I said.
Robert nodded, contemplative. “I think I understand. I’ll be careful, and won’t go anywhere without Yin,” he said.
“Damn right you won’t. I won’t let you out of my sight,” groused Yin.
I smiled and retrieved the food and small gas grill. “I may as well cook some food for tonight and tomorrow morning. I think we will have a difficult week ahead of us,” I said.
I cooked some hot dogs and all the hamburgers we had bought, as well as some sausages. The cooked burgers would keep better than the raw meat would, and they would be a quick and easy food. We had bought plenty of cold cuts and cheese, several loaves of bread and a couple packs of tortillas for variety. Twelve bags of different chips rounded out the food, and we had each gotten a case of bottled water. Katira had confirmed that all these would be good foods to have. Easy and quick to cook and reheat, plus eating them cold wouldn’t hurt.
While I was cooking, Drake took the opportunity to learn to fly, and then to hunt on the wing. He returned excited and bouncy, a squirrel in his jaws, and his enthusiasm was difficult to ignore.
We ate and talked for several hours, until nightfall, when it got much colder, and we began to be serenaded by the crickets. Drake went out to hunt the chirping insects, and we all left the cave to look at the night sky, which was beautifully clear.
It was while we were outside staring at the sky that we heard it.
It was clear as a bell, but sounded somewhat…off. We all looked at one another, nodded, then walked back into the cave.
“Congratulations, Initiates. You have passed the first test. Following instructions. That is what will help keep you alive for the rest of your hopefully long lives. Yes, it was real; no, it was not a spell or anything from any of us familiars or Drake. My Master is correct. There are, indeed, things that live in these mountains. As long as you follow the rules, you will be fine. There will be no hiding or cowering in your workshops. You will conduct all experiments and tests out here.
“Welcome to your training, Initiates,” Katira said.

[First] Prev/ Next
After a fair few rest stops, fuelings, and a short shopping trip to pick up provisions for the week, we arrived eight hours later at a fork in the road about ten minutes outside Newark, WV. Joaquin had actually spent most of the trip learning whatever English he could from the rest of us, instead of playing video games like I’d expected.
We all emerged from the car, stretched and looked around. Aside from the smattering of homes we had seen on the way, this place was about as empty of people as it could get.
Katira, clad in her usual baggy shorts, and even baggier T-shirt, took in her surroundings, closed her eyes and oriented herself to the southeast. “Over there a few hundred yards. There is a cave hidden there. I think the wards still hold, but this is the place we were,” she said confidently.
“Cool. What do we do about the car? Can’t leave it here. It needs to be off the road, and preferably hidden from view,” I said, looking around.
“I can take care of that, Master. Let’s find a level place to park it, and I will take care of the car,” she said with a nod.
“Okay. Back in, everyone. We will park, then lug everything to our home for the next week,” I said, clapping my hands.
With some groans, the rest of our troupe piled in, and I found a place to park about a quarter-mile away, a few hundred yards off the road. I snugged the car into a niche in a thicket, and we all got back out, removing our gear. I took the moment to affix my hunting knife to my belt. Spying some fallen branches and detritus, we hastily began to cover the car, hoping to add a little camouflage to the silver vehicle.
Katira took a good look over the car, and nodded her head, adjusting a limb or two here, a leaf there, adding some dirt over here, and stepped back.
“This is good. Is everything out? Once I create the ward, it will last for a maximum of ten days. Until we leave, none of us can touch it, or it will be dispelled. It will keep the local wildlife away, and discourage any investigation. The materials on it will stay put, unless there is an extremely strong storm, which the forecast has said are non-existent. Are we ready?” she asked. We all agreed, and she began casting the ward.
Watching a spell be cast was an extremely interesting thing. Katira stood still for a moment, then extended her hands, murmuring something in a language I couldn’t comprehend. She walked what looked like an erratic path around the thicket, but as she repeated it, I saw that she was stepping exactly in her previous footprints. To the millimeter. As she walked, I saw columns of light sprouting from the ground at five points, all curving inwards, converging in the center of the thicket.
After completing five complete revolutions, she stopped and faced the thicket, pulling her hands toward her body. She sliced a gouge into the back of her left arm with a fingernail, and scattered the blood into the area of the ward. The air shimmered, as if it were a mirage, and suddenly we simply couldn’t see the car anymore. Even though we were staring right at where it was.
Katira stepped back, panting. “There. That’s done. Master, I need a rest. Let’s get everyone loaded up, and I’ll take my place on your shoulder, okay?” she asked tiredly.
I nodded, and we began divvying everything up, giving myself and Robert the bulk of the heavy items. Once we were situated, Katira took her spot on my shoulder, and found it a safe place to simply sit and recover.
Together, the four of us Initiates walked off into a heavily wooded mountainside, following directions from my miniature familiar. Eventually, after navigating some tricky terrain, we came to a broad, flat area, with several spruce trees and a few fallen logs.
“This is it, Master. The cave is in the face of the rock there. Ten steps forward. Okay, reach out with your right hand, and feel around. It’s the best way I can describe what you’re going to be doing,” she said in my ear.
I stuck my arm out, placing my hand flat on the rock in front of me. Slowly, I dragged it across the rock face, finding nothing. I rubbed it up and down as high and low as I could, until I felt a kind of click inside me, and stopped my hand.
“That’s it, Master! Good job finding the right strand of the ward. Now, I want you to kind of ‘suck’ with your hand. Trust me. I know it sounds weird, but imagine you’re sucking in a super long spaghetto,” she said.
I shrugged and visualized a mouth in my hand, slurping up a giant sheet of…something. As soon as I began, I felt an odd creeping feeling crawl up my arm, winding around my bicep, then curling around my chest. As I continued, the feeling wound its way down my leg and, once it found the ground, I felt a thump within me as a cave was revealed right in front of my face.
“Excellent job, Master. I knew you could do it. Especially after seeing what you did at the Guildhall and learning what you did for Drake, I knew you could do the visualizations. Now, it’s just a matter of setting up the tents. You will find that the floor is firm soil, and as long as the mountain hasn’t shifted in the last several hundred years, there are some niches in the walls for our things,” she advised.
“Okay guys. Let’s go and get our camp set up. It’s wide enough for two tents abreast with plenty of room to get between them. Katira says there should be some niches in the walls for our things. Are you guys ready to start?” I said excitedly.
Three smiling faces met mine, and we all set up our tents. I placed myself in the rear of the cave, as I liked the cool and damp air. We stowed our various equipment in the niches, and looked around.
“Now what? Do you want to start tonight, or are we going to rest from the trip?” I asked Katira, who had resumed her size, and was sitting in a hollow in the wall, as if it were made for her, which, in all reality, it probably was.
“I think we should wait until the morning. This will be difficult enough without adding in the stress of a long journey. Also, Stu? Why don’t you take this time to familiarize everyone with Appalachian rules?” she suggested. Everyone turned to face me, curiosity etched across every face.
I shudder ran through me. I knew all the rules and the reasons behind them. They had been instilled within me at a very early age.
Somberly, I began, “Okay, everyone. I want you to listen carefully. The Appalachians are some of the oldest mountains in the world. They are older than bones. Literally. They are steeped in thousands and thousands of years of legends and lore, some of which is probably true. There is much more that we have simply lost to time. What I will tell you are the rules passed down to me from my mother’s family. They were all close to the land, going back generations. Here they are:
“Number one. If you hear something whistling in the woods at night, No you didn’t. There are things out there that will attract your attention by whistling. Do not acknowledge them. If you hear it, return to camp immediately. Do not run. Turn around, and come back at a calm pace.
“Number two. Do not under any circumstances whistle in the woods at night. This will attract things that we do not want to deal with. Drake? This concerns you, also. At night, do not whistle. Chirp if you must, growling is preferred, but do not whistle.
“Number three. If you see something moving in the trees, No you didn’t. As with rule one, turn around and walk back. Do not acknowledge it. Do not look at it. Come back.
“Number four. Don’t go alone. Especially at night. While we will probably have our familiars with us, this rule is serious. Do not be alone. That invites things and wild animals. Safety in numbers and all that.
“Number five. If you hear someone calling your name, No you didn’t. Those things I was talking about? They can mimic human speech. Not perfectly, though. There is always something that gives it away. You’ll just know. Trust me on that.
“Number six. This is a modifier for anything you hear. If it sounds close? It’s far off. If it sounds far away? It’s very close. It can see you, and is tracking you. They do this to either frighten you to run to them, or to entice you to follow the sound. I know it’s counterintuitive, but that’s how they work.
“Number seven. That deer you saw? Might not have been a deer. Do not go near it. If it is watching you, look elsewhere. Turn around and come back to camp.
“Number eight. Those aren’t lights. Stay away from them.
“Any questions? I will answer what I can.”
Joaquin raised his hand nervously. “What happen if I answer?”
“Good question. You will likely die,” I said bluntly. “By answering, you have alerted the thing to your presence, and it will hunt you. And by extension, all of us. There is no known way of hiding, no known way of warding these things off. Follow the rules. Especially if you hear someone speaking your language. I guarantee you that nobody here knows Portuguese or Japanese. Nobody,” I concluded.
“Okay, Stuart-senpai. I will not respond to voices in the woods. If I hear them, I will return. I will have my Oiwa with me at all times. I am ready,” Morita-san said confidently.
“Good! I’m glad to hear that. Robert? Any questions or concerns?” I asked the younger man.
“Do you really believe in all that old superstition stuff? I mean, none of it’s real. Right?” he asked.
“Not real, huh? You’re saying this while you’re standing in a cave with three other people -strangers, even- a total of four beings who can change their shape upon contact with a new Master, and a literal dragon. You want to maybe rethink that?” I asked.
“Not to mention you’ve already seen two examples of magic, Robert. You’re about to enter a world that is undoubtedly filled with crazier things than what you’ve seen so far. Open your mind a bit wider,” I said.
“Yeah. I suppose you’re right. But, do any of those things actually exist?” He asked.
I sighed softly. “Yeah, man. They do. I’ve heard my father calling for me out in the woods when he was asleep in the cabin next to me. His snoring was distinctive. When I said something about it the next morning, he was just glad I’d stayed put. Mom, however? She was extremely concerned, and had us leave that day. Since then, I’ve followed those rules to the letter. Please. Follow those rules. The mountains are ancient, and there are creatures, spirits and haints that have taken up residence here for eons. Things exist here, man. We do not want to run afoul of them. Treat the cave and the surrounding woods with respect,” I said.
Robert nodded, contemplative. “I think I understand. I’ll be careful, and won’t go anywhere without Yin,” he said.
“Damn right you won’t. I won’t let you out of my sight,” groused Yin.
I smiled and retrieved the food and small gas grill. “I may as well cook some food for tonight and tomorrow morning. I think we will have a difficult week ahead of us,” I said.
I cooked some hot dogs and all the hamburgers we had bought, as well as some sausages. The cooked burgers would keep better than the raw meat would, and they would be a quick and easy food. We had bought plenty of cold cuts and cheese, several loaves of bread and a couple packs of tortillas for variety. Twelve bags of different chips rounded out the food, and we had each gotten a case of bottled water. Katira had confirmed that all these would be good foods to have. Easy and quick to cook and reheat, plus eating them cold wouldn’t hurt.
While I was cooking, Drake took the opportunity to learn to fly, and then to hunt on the wing. He returned excited and bouncy, a squirrel in his jaws, and his enthusiasm was difficult to ignore.
We ate and talked for several hours, until nightfall, when it got much colder, and we began to be serenaded by the crickets. Drake went out to hunt the chirping insects, and we all left the cave to look at the night sky, which was beautifully clear.
It was while we were outside staring at the sky that we heard it.
It was clear as a bell, but sounded somewhat…off. We all looked at one another, nodded, then walked back into the cave.
“Congratulations, Initiates. You have passed the first test. Following instructions. That is what will help keep you alive for the rest of your hopefully long lives. Yes, it was real; no, it was not a spell or anything from any of us familiars or Drake. My Master is correct. There are, indeed, things that live in these mountains.

“Welcome to your training, Initiates,” Katira said.

2023.03.22 19:42 DIEXEL Anyone willing to test if these two is real myths?

1) I don't know other conditions except that all three must be available, that Franklin have the safe house in Vinewood Hills and have parachute in his possession.
When the big X appear in the sky, the player must switch to Franklin, go so fast as possible to Astronomers' Monument. Connect the monument with the big X with Franklin (third-person view). I noticed for several years ago that Franklin can stay there for a long time meanwhile Michael and Trevor don't. Player switch to Michael and take him to Devin's house, close to the radio at the swimming pool. Sometime Michael spawns near the heli pad, which give the player more time to do this. Player switch to Trevor and take him to Jesco White before the big X disappear. I believe that the player need to take the road left of Alamo Sea. When I did it, I had not picked up Ursula so Ursula did not spawn, maybe a indicator that the myth is still on? When I've took the highways/freeways, the big X disappeared much faster which meant that I couldn't reach Jesco White in time.
When Trevor reach Jesco White, two NPCs, which usually are right of Jesco White (near the house), should now be on the left side of Jesco White and looking at the hill close to the waterfall in Raton Canyon. First left after the bridge if you coming from Stab City or second right after you cross the steel bridge if you're coming from Jesco White. That hill has a path which becomes three paths later on. One to the left, one straight forward and one to the right. I believe that could represents the mural "Some look left some look right but the answer is right in front of us." ( I don't know if that was right but I placed Michael at the left and Trevor to the right as what the character wheel are. I placed both on each observation deck. You need to switch between the characters to be sure they staying on the location they should be at. There's a parked car, Franklin jump into the car or a bike and follow the path. Drive over the cliff and jump out/off and use parachute and hit the waterfall or fly into it.
I did all this except hit the waterfall because it was so damn hard to navigate the parachute with mouse and keyboard. ( ( I also remember that the waterfall looked different from what it usually look like when I was at the cliff and looked down to it.
I wondering if the space behind the waterfall is connected to the T02 door. Either the myth is completed or parts of the myth is completed when Franklin steps out of that door. It could also be that the game say that Franklin need to enter T01 door. It was someone in the earlier days of this subreddit who claimed that are a "secret" mission with Franklin, an UFO and the Moon. Michael and Trevor on observation decks when something happen to the Mount Chiliad and they see Franklin fly out of it in a F UFO.
The drunken dev wrote "No there is no jetpack but it's good alternative that people will like. Needs 3 to unlock it" and "Leads to finding an opening to a cave in the mountain leading to something". So this one could be the 4) and the one below could be 1). (
I believe also the nearby "easter egg" Thelma & Louise, is not an easter egg but an instruction to do the final part. When I had PS3, I hit the waterfall from both Mount Chiliad and the place the T&L stuff are located. If T&L was an easter egg, why would it go on repeat? So I believe this is similar to Dom's missions, a tutorial to solve myths.
2) The only conditions I know is that Michael need to be in Sandy Shore with Trevor. And probably have sex with Ursula at right time so the player can do the required stuff before the Ghost disappear.
First time I connected the X and Astronomers Monument, it looked like the lighthouse. I believe, after I read the post from the drunken R* dev which wrote that the ghost has more to offer, that the X and the Monument will actually represent also the lighthouse. The contrails which connected to the monument is actually visions of what the lighthouse can see. I've said it before, that lighthouse is this game's version of Eye of Sauron. Both on PS3 and PC the player can control the light. I wrote about it here, before the PC version was released, but people rejected that and claimed it was because of console limitation. Bullshit. So I believe the player need to do that when Michael are in Sandy Shore. Michael call Ursula, they have sex and Michael leaving the house. The vehicle, the player use to drive Ursula back to her place, always spawns in a tree structure, even helicopters. Why? Yeah so the player can't cheat. Another thing is that the vehicles always spawns in a special angle, which I believe it's actually pointing to something. The player need to drive the path up to the top of Mount Gordo, I bet R* has timed it. So no helicopters or any shortcuts. When Michael arrives to the top, he need to do the yoga. Sometime he get big eyes after a yoga session, I believe it's widener his senses. ( After that and with big eyes, he need to go and visit the ghost which spawns between 23:00 and 00:00.
Sometime before the yoga session or during the driving up to the top, the player need to switch over to Trevor and let him race to the lighthouse and jump over with a car to the lighthouse. Some character switching is required to know that the characters is still on right paths. Sprint to the platform, which are between the lighthouse and the sea (Ursula's house), and control the light so the light is maybe on the unnamed grave on San Chianski Mountain Range or somewhere else BUT not on the ghost. Don't let the lighthouse see what Michael are doing.
After Michael has interacted with the ghost, I bet that the player will be directed to the already mention grave. The player need then switch over to Trevor and change so the lighthouse looks the other way. Switch back to Michael and reach the grave unseen of the lighthouse.
That the player can control the Lighthouse's light has always make me suspicious. And the unnamed grave has flying under the radar for years without anyone has any explanation for it. If you place some explosives on the grave and detonate them, some cracks over the grave appear. At least when I tested out for couple years ago.
Maybe Jolene Cranley-Evans will wake from the dead and Michael need to drive her to Jock and the player see his reaction to an alive Jolene? That'd be interesting if it's true.

2023.03.22 18:55 doktaphill Blood Meridian Notes

It's me!
These are my notes for my video on Blood Meridian. Will also upload reviews of Chapters 11 and 23 specifically, as requested by a few people. Enjoy!

blood meridian notes
This lecture is founded specifically on the work of Dr. Michael Lynn Crews, assistant professor at Regent University in Virginia. In a 2014 paper he plumbed the Wittliff Collection at Alkek Library in San Marcos, Texas, where McCarthy has provided all of his notes, drafts, and correspondences. He essentially made a list of influences and explored evidential links. We’ll be looking at some of the most prominent today, but the link to the study itself is in the description if you would like to look into it more. All of the authors are very pertinent to McCarthy’s work, and he is an insanely well-read person, but I chose these three in particular because they are, as far as I can see, most relevant to the narrative itself. We will be looking at Oswald Spengler, Herman Melville, and Lord Byron - but there is no reason to stop at these. I strongly encourage you to look through all of Dr. Crews’ study in order to get a bigger picture of the work.
Now, this discussion will primarily be designed to help early understanding of the book. Byron and Melville constitute kind of a spinal role in this book while Spengler has thematic presence in the book’s events. Other authors feature just as heavily and centrally, but the three I’ve chosen bear the signature of the book pretty well: will to power, the concept of nature, the human heart. The will to power is obviously a hegelian and Nietzschean concept, which we will touch on, but we will do it by looking at Spengler, who was directly influenced by the predecessor. This will be about a one-hour video just to be square - so that it’s long enough to listen to but not too long to turn off too early.
Introduce McCarthy and Blood Meridian
Today, we’re actually going to start with Byron. This is the easiest road into Blood Meridian in particular for a very specific reason. Crews notes a 1981 letter in which McCarthy MENTIONS Byron - “which is not surprising.” Lord Byron is one of the most famous writers in the English language and McCarthy frequents classic literary avenues. Crews quotes McCarthy as writing:
“I don’t know if I agree about writers being the only dependable readers. I remember reading once the names of the writers Byron admired – none of whom anyone has heard of since.”
We will be returning to this quote again. For now, we know that McCarthy knows who Byron is. Crews notes the similarities between Byron’s anti-hero and many of McCarthy’s protagonists - not least of which is the protag of Blood Meridian, The Kid. But as we move through the first paragraph of the book, the poet’s influence on McCarthy will become very clear.
Byron traveled a lot and made an incredible impression on culture in his day. His poetry is authoritative, full-bodied and existential. Among his most famous works is Stanzas to the Po. Byron was in Italy at the time, near the end of his life: he was in love with a married woman named Teresa Gamba Ghiselli. His infatuation was so intense that it would follow him to his grave. Ghiselli was brilliant, sociable, and in many ways a celebrity in Venice. When she became gravely ill in 1819 Byron was ready to end his own life. They eloped in 1821 and grew bored, then Byron left for Greece, where he would die a few years later. Stanzas to the Po was composed in 1819, when he confronted the river Po itself as a kind of counsel, and felt affirmed in his romantic ambitions. This is the 11th verse:

A stranger loves the Lady of the land;
Born far beyond the mountains, but his blood
Is all meridian, as if never fanned
By the black wind that chills the polar flood.
Byron was a man controlled by his extraordinary vision of the world, controlled by passion and a slave to beauty in every sense. It is this obsession with what is beautiful that will feature centrally in Blood Meridian - but the beauty itself will be a fact of the will, and perhaps not a remark about the world itself.

Discusses the nature of darkness and evil. He quotes Christ as saying, in John 8:44, “The devil is a liar and murderer from the beginning.” He describes “all forms” as being adverse to one another, each of them a figure of deception. He says darkness is “terrified” of light, even though the light seems to exist within each dark form. A dark form is a shapeshifter, can take on many forms. Point 11 reads:
“The dark life is like a terror, where the flash and terror is always mounting upwards, as if it would quit the life and fly out above it. And hence arises pride, so that the devil is always wishing to be above God; it is his proprium, his life’s figure is so, and he cannot do otherwise. Just as a poison rages and pierces, as if it would break loose from the member;”
Then, the translation I found had slightly more breadth than McCarthy’s edition:
“And yet it is not to be thought that the life of darkness therefore sinks down into misery, that it would forget itself as if it were sorrowful. there is no sorrowing; but what with us on earth is sorrowing according to this property, is in the darkness power and joy according to the property of the darkness. For sorrowfulness is a thing that is swallowed up in death. But death and dying is the life of the darkness, just as anguish is the life of the poison. The greater the anguish becomes in the poison, the stronger becomes the poison-life, as is to be seen in the external poison.”
ˈprōprēəm. plural propria. -ēə : property, attribute.

Actually refers to the Bodo cranium, which is a fossil from an extinct hominin. It was found in 1976 and is actually 600,000 years old, not 300,000. Further reinforces McCarthy’s point, that this kind of “evil” or lust for violence predates civilization by a dizzying margin.

Comment on Wordsworth poem:

My heart leaps up when I behold
A rainbow in the sky:
So was it when my life began;
So is it now I am a man;
So be it when I shall grow old,
Or let me die!
The Child is father of the Man;
And I could wish my days to be
Bound each to each by natural piety.

Judge: “our mother the earth . . . was round like an egg and contained all good things within her” (McCarthy 130).
A figure in German folklore championed by Goethe’s representation. Faust was a learned person who sold his soul to the devil at a crossroads in exchange for all knowledge. Something being “Faustian” means that one exchanges their moral or ethical stature for material or intellectual gain. The devil was represented by Mephistopheles, who appears as a black dog.
Schopenhauer first coined the idea of “will to live” to describe biological motivations. Interestingly, Schopenhauer held that the Will itself is the most important, even more than our sense of safety or our. very concept of existence, because the Will somehow exists without acknowledgement of either.
From his “Psychological Observations”:
“The will to live, which forms the inmost core of every living being, exhibits itself most conspicuously in the higher order of animals, that is, the cleverer ones; and so in them the nature of the will may be seen and examined most clearly. For in the lower orders its activity is not so evident; it has a lower degree of objectivation; whereas, in the class which stands above the higher order of animals, that is, in men, reason enters in; and with reason comes discretion, and with discretion, the capacity of dissimulation, which throws a veil over the operations of the will. And in mankind, consequently, the will appears without its mask only in the affections and the passions.
“And this is the reason why passion, when it speaks, always wins credence, no matter what the passion may be; and rightly so. For the same reason the passions are the main theme of poets and the stalking horse of actors. The conspicuousness of the will in the lower order of animals explains the delight we take in dogs, apes, cats, etc.; it is the entirely naive way in which they express themselves that gives us so much pleasure.
“The sight of any free animal going about its business undisturbed, seeking its food, or looking after its young, or mixing in the company of its kind, all the time being exactly what it ought to be and can be,—what a strange pleasure it gives us! Even if it is only a bird, I can watch it for a long time with delight; or a water rat or a hedgehog; or better still, a weasel, a deer, or a stag. The main reason why we take so much pleasure in looking at animals is that we like to see our own nature in such a simplified form. There is only one mendacious being in the world, and that is man. Every other is true and sincere, and makes no attempt to conceal what it is, expressing its feelings just as they are.”
Nietzsche, looking back on philosophers from the first half of the 19th century, took this idea and formed it into “Machtgelüst,” or “desire for power.”
From “Human, All too Human”:
“Herder.—Herder fails to be all that he made people think he was and himself wished to think he was. He was no great thinker or discoverer, no newly fertile soil with the unexhausted strength of a virgin forest. But he possessed in the highest degree the power of scenting the future, he saw and picked the first-fruits of the seasons earlier than all others, and they then believed that he had made them grow. Between darkness and light, youth and age, his mind was like a hunter on the watch, looking everywhere for transitions, depressions, convulsions, the outward and visible signs of internal growth. The unrest of spring drove him to and fro, but he was himself not the spring.”

Oswald Spengler, 1880-1936, was a German philosopher and scholar. He wrote “The Decline of the West” in 1922, which was hugely popular. He would not live to see the cataclysmic Second World War, and despite initially voting for Hitler he soon turned around and was ostracized for his opposition to the status quo. Spengler opposed antisemitism. He is still known for his general criticism of liberalism among Islamist circles.
In Decline of the West, Spengler casts a society as a cultural organism that can live and die in intervals, and asserts that the Western project is coming to an end. Rather than taking an overtly pessimistic view, however, he aquires Goethe’s concept of becoming and changing. The German word in the title, Untergang, is often translated as “Decline,” but “untergang” did not have necessarily doom-like resonance with Spengler. He nearly used the word “vollendung,” which is more like “fulfillment.” This probably concerns the Judge’s ideas directly — the idea that the sunset or twilight of mankind is somehow also the completion of his project. But “completion” is a complicated reality and not necessarily straightforward; the completion could be a realization of the warfaring creature or a concession to our nature in a more abstract sense. I don’t think there’s a straightforward solution to this obscure detail: I believe the book simply illustrates the triumph of the will over all other conventions, with violence merely serving as a means to an end for the Judge.
Spengler discusses Goethe and Nietzsche almost back to back in Decline of the West. He describes classical civilization as a situation of breaks from destiny: the advancements from classical to new, like Athens to Paris, Aristotle to Kant, Alexander to Napoleon. Rather than purchasing the idea that his contemporary West “inherited” and continued classical tradition, he actually believes the connection is aesthetic and superficial. He suggests that it is more productive to identify how “alien” the classical world truly is to us moderns: as if we share anything with them.
But Spengler actually frames Nietzsche as being lost in his idealization of the classical world, an accuses him of speaking to a “philological mirror.” And rather than buying into the “ancient-medieval-modern” theory of history, Spengler believes history occurs more organically as a sequence in which successive iterations do not necessarily resemble past examples, exactly like a transforming organism.
So when we see the word “Evening” or “Sunset” or “Twilight” of the West in this sense, what we are actually observing, at the moment it is uttered, is the product of this historical sequence. In the context of Blood Meridian, The Evening Redness in the West, we are observing a new iteration of history derived not from an original point but from what has developed in the interim.
This gives new meaning to characters being “remote from their origins,” and it casts light on the Kid’s abandonment of the “poets whose names are now lost” in a house where his birth sacrificed his own mother. Moving West, the human race must become something new, but maybe we are not willing to admit what it is we must become.
The Judge’s destruction of artifacts may also serve to drive a wedge between the truth of history and our fallacious inclination to depict history as one long, linear narrative. The “thread” of history, according to Spengler, is frayed and tangential. Ossification of worldviews may act against our interests — Spengler distinguishes between cultural and zoological determinisms in history. While the “West,” which is a cultural construct, may come to an end, this is trivial in the grand scheme of things. In light of Spengler’s book “Man and Technics,” however, which does have quite a pessimistic outlook, he warns that whereas “culture” was previously our focus, soon its moment’s slow expiration will give way to the often-overlooked technical world, which can effortlessly replace our sacred concerns with the absolutely mundane. But what he truly fears is the sacrifice of the soul in exchange for a purely technical life:
“ For, in reality, technics is immemorially old, and moreover it is not
something historically specific, but something immensely general. It
extends far beyond mankind, back into the life of the animals, indeed of all animals. It is distinctive of the animal, in contrast to the plantwise, type of living that it is capable of moving freely in space and possesses some measure, great or small, of self-will and independence of Nature as a whole, and that, in possessing these, it is obliged to maintain itself against Nature and to give its own being some sort of a significance, some sort of a content, and some sort of a superiority. If, then, we would attach a significance to technics, we must start from the soul, and that alone. ”
With regard to Decline of the West, Spengler is consistent in distinguishing the cultural arc of history from the purely biological, asserting that technique is a hallmark of all life. He then issues some startingly Judge-like remarks:
“Technics is the tactics of living; it is the inner form of which the procedure of conflict — the conflict that is identical with Life itself — is the outward expression. This is the second error that has to be avoided. Technics is not to be understood in terms of the implement. What matters is not how one fashions things, but what one does with them; not the weapon, but the battle. Modern warfare, in which the decisive element is tactics — that is, the technique of running the war, the techniques of inventing, producing, and handling the weapons being only items in the process as a whole — points to a general truth.”
Spengler’s approach to technique is almost frighteningly sober, identifying that our underlying nature is not beholden to ephemeral conceptions, but extends far beyond the narrow horizon of our conceits. As we consider “The Evening Redness in the West,” it is helpful to identify that we are coming into a twilight of an era and into a more faithful inheritance of our nature, one that preceded our short-lived projects and will long outlive it.
Spengler, in Decline, notes the marginalization of great cities, people, and cultures throughout history — how Florence, Rome, Athens hardly command the renown they once did, and that this is typical in history.
“…that many famous old-noble families, descendants of the men who defeated the Celts and the Samnites, lost their ancestral homes through standing apart from the wild rush of speculation and were reduced to renting wretched apartments; that, while along the Appian Way there arose the splendid and still wonderful tombs of the financial magnates, the corpses of the people were thrown along with animal carcases and town refuse into a monstrous common grave — till in Augustus’s time it was banked over for the avoidance of pestilence and so became the site of Maecenas’s renowned park…”
The decline of the “West” is little more than a natural progression of time to Spengler, and it may be that some refuse to be cast out of the limelight of history.

Part 53
TW: Intense, masochistic sexuality.
Caliope, Clever Little Shit
Caliope sat in the back of the transport, still parked in front of the fancy house somewhere in south LA. Finally, she had her hands cuffed in front of her body, and she could reach her crotch. She dug fingers in her panties and inside of herself, reaching deep, into her posterior fornix. The thrill of stimulation there barely registered, even though it was her favorite spot for a cock or dildo to hit. She was too angry.
She pushed hard, twisting at the cuffs until she fit her entire hand inside of herself, and she could finally reach the scar. It had been there for years, waiting for this exact opportunity.
She dug her fingernails in, the sensitive tissue sending howling signals of pain to her brain, where her own psychology twisted them into signals of pleasure. Blood flowed as she scratched and clawed at herself, but she eventually found what she was looking for. Flesh parted, revealing a small, artificial lump.
She seized in in slippery fingers and pulled it out. It was a tiny handcuff key, with a tiny bit of her own brand of magic stored inside of it, wrapped in layers of cling-wrap. She quickly unwrapped it as blood soaked through her panties and smeared the seat.
She finally got it unwrapped and wasted no time unlocking her handcuffs. The bleeding did not concern her, she knew she would heal rapidly once she was done. She touched the key to the collar around her throat and felt the relief as its magic failed. She quickly used the sharpened tooth on the key to saw through the strap of the collar.
Her own magic filled her, and she let some of it turn to healing. She turned some more into physical strength. Then she checked the doors.
Locked, of course. The DCM was not known for ignoring non-magical security measures. She saw the two officers moving towards her vehicle, and decided that violence was the way to go. She placed her hands in her lap and waited.
They climbed in and started the vehicle.
"Listen," the driver said. "Here's how this works. You don't give us any problems, we don't give you any problems, okay?"
She nodded. "I understand," she said. "No problems."
"Good. We're probably gonna hit a drive-thru on the way. You can get something if you're hungry," the passenger said. Caliope nodded. "Thank you," she said, demurely. A drive-thru would be the perfect time to strike.
She sat in the back quietly as they drove her north. Around Anaheim, they pulled into a Jack in the Box, stopping in front of the menu. "Figure out what you want," the passenger said, turning to face her. "It's my treat."
Caliope smiled at him. He smiled back, then turned to face forward, and that's when Caliope struck.
She felt like she'd gotten a raw deal, the last time. She had never really gotten the chance to fight, except when she faced off with that psycho lunatic who'd surprised her and beaten her to within an inch of her life before she even understood what was happening. She had been training to fight for years and years, and yet when the time came, she managed to catch the guy who was, according to everything she understood, out standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the gods themselves.
But these two, they were former soldiers or cops. Not demigods, not magical beings of immense power.
She surged forward and grabbed the driver by the head, digging fingers into his eye sockets. The man let loose a howl that brought a smile to her face as she blinded him and slammed his head against the seat rest. She brought her feet up and wedged them against the back of his seat even as the passenger spun, a can of paper spray coming up. She ignored him, even as the magical shield triggered by the can popped into place on the man's face and tried -unsuccessfully, thanks to her fingers- to form over the driver's face.
The man let loose and the liquid splattered her face, immediately causing an intense burning sensation. She shuddered as the pain made her cum and redoubled her efforts. With magically enhanced strength, it didn't take long to bend the headrest back, hyperextending the man's neck. His struggles abruptly stopped as she felt something pop in his body and he slumped against her.
The passenger had apparently realized that the pepper spray was just this side of worthless and drawn his sidearm. He thrust it towards he, and she had just enough time to duck her head and seize his wrist before it went off.
The sound was deafening in the enclosed space. Caliope's ears rang as she squeezed the man's wrist and slammed it into his own headrest. He reached back with his free hand and grabbed a handful of her hair, yanking forward and slamming her face into the back of his seat. She felt her nose break and another orgasm swept through her as she grabbed the hand holding her head.
She slammed his wrist again and again, and finally he dropped the gun. She tried to catch it, but missed and it clattered to the floor. She reached down for it, but the man's grip on her hair kept her from it. She strained against him, reaching for the gun.
His right hand vanished, then she felt a heavy impact in her side. She glanced down to see the man drawing the four-inch blade of a combat knife out of her ribs. The impact began to throb and burn as she whipped her head around and warded his knife off with one hand, still straining for the gun with the other.
The knife darted and slashed, opening her arm in two places. She brushed the gun with her fingertips, shifting it. Caliope sucked in a deep breath, ignoring the burning in her side and her arm that made her want to touch herself, and yanked down hard on the hand holding her hair. Her scalp erupted into more burning as he yanked a large clump of hair out by the roots, but she could now reach the gun.
She picked it up and pressed it to the back of the seat, squeezing the trigger until the slide locked back. The cracks of the shots were loud, but her still-ringing ears muted them. The guard slumped, his hands going limp. He dropped the knife into the foot well.
Caliope leaned back and gave in to the urge that had been with her ever since the pepper spray struck her. She wiped her face, wetting her hands and then stuck them both in her panties, coming immediately as her vulva began to burn. She played with herself for several minutes, until she couldn't afford to remain here any longer. Someone in the restaurant or the buildings nearby would have heard the gunshots and the local police might be on the way already.
She grabbed the driver and hauled him into the back, then climbed up to the driver's seat. She put the vehicle, still idling, back into drive and spun it around, pulling back out of the parking lot.
She glanced at the body next to her. "You don't give me any trouble, I won't give you any trouble," she said with a grin.
A few miles later, she pulled into a mostly empty parking lot in front of a strip mall. She turned onto the road as she reached over and patted the pockets of the dead guard. She found his cellphone in his pants pocket and pulled it out. She used his phone to unlock it and opened the web browser, typing in a URL that she knew by heart. It took a second to load, and when it did, it immediately loaded a chat room.
U there? she typed and hit send. She waited.
Less than ten seconds passed before the indicator that someone was typing flashed on. A few seconds after that, a new message appeared.
Waiting on u, it said. Caliope grinned.
I no where theres guns an shit, Caliope typed, pausing to check the history of the vehicle's on-board GPS. in san clemente. im in anaheim rn
The typing icon appeared, cycled through its animation and vanished.
Coming there where r u? the chat read. Caliope's grin widened. She hit back on the GPS until it showed her current location, giving the intersection at the top.
Euclid st n katelia ave, in a car w dcm stickers by the arbys
A second later, the icon appeared and then vanished before it could animate.
Omw, the chat read.
Caliope turned and wrestled the other guard's body into the back, then got out and opened the rear hatch. She found raincoats, rifles, a shotgun and assorted gear, mostly tools that would be useful in a rescue situation. She grabbed a raincoat and a blanket and then closed it up.
She threw the blanket over the bodies in the back, then stripped out of her bloody clothes and threw the raincoat on. It was translucent, but she didn't care. She checked their pockets and then the center console of the vehicle, finding a few bills in their wallets and a mass of change in the center console. She took it and walked into a laundromat that was part of the strip mall.
She washed her clothes, smiling at the men who kept sneaking peeks at her body through the raincoat. After they came out of the dryer, she stripped right there and pulled them on. Two of the younger men cheered for her when she pulled the raincoat off.
She left and went to sit in the driver's seat of the DCM vehicle. She waited for another thirty minutes, until a beat-up old Toyota pulled into the spot next to her, and her sister and two men climbed out.
She rolled down the window. "Hulks or ninjas?" she asked the two men. Both sneered at her. "Hulks," one of them said, sounding offended. She smiled. "Good. There's only four guards left to watch the place until the cops come. If we hurry, this should be easy."
"Griselda, are you done?" Caliope asked, sticking her head into the kitchen. Griselda sat there, in front of the last survivor of their assault on Garcia's home. He was slumped over, insensate, the hand she had duct-taped to the table by the wrist flayed open to expose muscle and tendons.
Griselda pouted at her sister. "He fainted," she said.
"We're all geared up," Caliope told her. "We're ready to decide what to do."
Griselda stood. She picked up a sewing needle from the table and jammed it into the man's shoulder as she passed him by, but he didn't react. He really was out cold.
The two hulks, Johnny and Bob, stood in the living room, next to the shimmering portal.
"So where we going? We splitting up, or sticking together?" Bob asked.
"Well," Griselda said. "We don't really have any money. Just a couple hundred bucks. And we're on the run, so we need money."
"These guns are worth a pretty penny," Johnny said, hefting a shotgun. Caliope shook her head. "They're not worth enough for us to split up and vanish, the way we need to."
"Duke told us what to do," Bob pointed out.
"He goes by 'Dylan' now," Griselda told him, glancing at Caliope for confirmation. She nodded.
"He did, but the question is whether we want to work for him again," Caliope said.
"I don't give a shit who I work for, as long as I get paid," Johnny said.
"Duke was always good about making sure we got paid," Bob agreed.
Caliope was less sure. She looked at her sister, who shrugged. "Why not?" Griselda asked. "I mean, it's right there. The dead world. We don't even have to look for it, it's right in front of us."
Caliope nodded. Finding the dead world had always been the 'tricky part' of Duke-er, Dylan's emergency plan. But there it was, right through that portal. With that problem solved, the idea of teaming back up with their old boss was a bit more appealing.
"Fuck it," Caliope said. Griselda grinned at her. "Let's go."
They all walked through the portal, checking behind them to make sure the way back was still there as they emerged onto a concrete road, surrounded by concrete buildings and dried-out corpses. It was, the dark ritual room a shocking contrast to the midday sun around them.
"Okay, now which way?" Johnny asked after they'd all walked through. As if in response, a thunderous roar sounded from off in the distance.
"Towards the monster," Caliope said. Griselda took her hand, digging her nails in, making Caliope whimper. She slipped a hand down the back of her sister's pants and slipped a finger into her ass, wiggling it. They smiled at each and turned to share a deep kiss for a moment before they took off, following the two men.
They trudged through the city for over an hour, not seeing any sign of whatever had done the roaring. Caliope noted the bodies and made a game of trying to guess what they'd been doing when they died. She soon roped Griselda into it, and they began guessing out loud. Before too long, Johnny and Bob joined in.
"Those two were fucking, for sure," Johnny said, pointing to a pair of corpses, one piled on the other.
"With their pants on?" Caliope asked skeptically.
"Fine, but those two were definitely fucking," Bob said, stopping and pointing down an alley. Caliope looked, and sure enough, another pair of corpses were piled there. The one on top had pants around its ankles, and the one on the bottom had a skirt that was hiked up.
They all stopped to laugh at that pair, killed in the middle of their tryst.
Johnny walked over and began messing with the corpses before throwing his head back and laughing. Griselda crouched down next to him, then began to giggle and raised the man's hand to slap her palm against it.
"What?" Caliope asked?
"She's got a toy in her asshole, and the dude is still inside her," Johnny explained, wiping tears from his eyes. Caliope grinned. "Adventurous," she quipped.
"Jesus," Bob said, checking it out for himself. "How fucking jaded do you gotta be to have to get your rocks off by getting DPed in public?"
Griselda jabbed him in the ribs, hard. "Don't mock people's kinks," she said.
Bob turned a look on her. "Oh, you like getting DPed in public? Maybe Johnny and I could help you out a bit," he said. Caliope noted a certain gleam in his eyes and decided to speak up.
"How could you do that, Bob, after my sister cuts your dick off?"
"Heh," Bob chuffed, straightening up. "I know you two have your tricks, but I wouldn't need to get big to toss you both around like rag dolls. Trust me, if I decide to fuck you, I'm gonna fuck you."
"Jesus fuck," Johnny objected. "Shut the fuck up, Bob. If you try to rape one of them, I'll help them beat the shit out of you. We've got more important shit to worry about, right now."
Caliope nodded in agreement. She was beginning to like Johnny. He had that big, blonde gringo thing going for him, and he seemed to have a good head on his shoulders.
"Johnny's right, Bob," she said. "And we can target our silence, you know. We could stop you from getting big, while letting him."
Bob laughed, though she detected a tinge of nerve in his tone. "You guys are way too uptight. Can't even tell when you're being fucked with."
"Well, let's stop fucking around," Caliope said. "In fact, we should stop talking, so we can hear if anything's approaching. I'd hate for whatever made that roar to catch us flat footed, talking about whose dick is going in whose asshole."
"My dick," Griselda said, "Goes in everyone's asshole." She stood and brushed sand off her pants, walking away from the fateful lovers.
Johnny joined her, leaving Bob to trail behind as they set off again.
They walked the rest of the afternoon in silence. As the sun set, they stopped to confer about what to do, deciding to stop in an intact building. They had Bob go out and gather grass and leaves and crumbling sticks to make a fire with, and then they heated up some of the camp food they'd found.
After eating, they cleared spaces on the floor and set up their sleeping bags, then went to sleep.
Caliope waited until she could hear three voices snoring before she climbed out of her bag. She stripped down to nothing and walked out of the building. The night sky looked different, she thought. The stars were different and the milky way was thicker and less bright.
She found the bench she'd spotted on their way in. It had small, sharp looking fins protruding from the arms which had caught her eye. She placed a leg on the seat and lowered herself, grinding her hips back and forth. The fins tore at the skin of her vulva, the tugging, burning pain making her body tingle. Blood dripped onto the rusty metal, and she wondered idly if she'd get tetanus from it.
The idea excited her. It was suppose to be a painful condition.
She didn't hear the footsteps approaching over her own whimpers and gasps. She didn't know anyone was behind her until she felt a pair of large hands grab her hips.
She spun, expecting to see Bob there, but it was Johnny. She smiled, seeing him.
"You want to help?" she asked.
"I'm not sure I can, now... You're all torn up," he said. She looked down to see the blood in her pubic hair and on the bench's arm.
"I heal," she said. "Like Dylan used to. It's part of the magic."
"Wish they'd given us that part," Johnny said. He leaned forward and brushed his lips against hers. She nipped at his upper lip, making him pull back. "Don't bite," he said.
"How else do I get you to bite back?" she asked playfully. She ground herself against the bench again, feeling the slight pop as each fin caught and then came loose of her flesh.
"Ask nicely," Johnny said.
Caliope grinned, then contorted her face into a parody of pleading. "Please bite me," she whispered. Johnny eyed her skeptically for a moment, then suddenly dipped his head and sank his teeth into her neck. She gasped as he did and moaned.
"Harder," she whispered. His teeth clamped down more.
"Harder," she murmured. She felt the sudden release of tension as he broke the skin.
"Harder," she said. He let go, and she could see blood on his lips. He lifted her up and bit down on one of her nipples, and the heat of an orgasm swept her mind away for a moment. When she regained her senses, she cried "Harder!"
He flipped her around and dropped her onto the arm of the bench. It jabbed painfully into her stomach and ripped skin at the tips of each fin. She came again, shuddering as Johnny pressed one hand down on her back. She felt him roughly shove a finger into her ass, followed by a second, making her moan.
As she felt his knuckles slip inside of her, another pair of hands, smaller and softer, grabbed her head and pushed it down, smacking her cheek against the backrest. Caliope caught a glimpse of her sister between the metal bars and grinned. Nobody could hurt her quite like Griselda.
"Here," Griselda said. "Let me show you what she likes."
Caliope melted away in an ocean of delicious agony.
Bob seemed oblivious to what he had missed out on the next morning. Caliope moved slowly, not because any injuries lingered, but because a slight ache remained low in her stomach, and she wanted to savor it.
Johnny managed to avoid getting clingy, which Caliope appreciated. Too many men thought that fucking her meant they were now a couple of some sort, and that she needed catering to. Johnny didn't care. He packed his own bag quickly and then started the fire up again and began cooking, never so much as offering to help either of the sisters with their stuff.
They got packed up, then got some food, and then set off. Caliope was beginning to worry that they might be moving in the wrong direction, but they had no other clues to tell them where to go.
It was shortly after noon, and they had left the city, moved through a small suburb and out into the dead countryside when she heard voices. She brought a hand up, then turned and pressed a finger to her lips. Everybody crouched down, Johnny and Bob readying their guns.
The voices were getting closer, coming from the left side of the road. Caliope crept into the dead trees as quietly as she could, until she could see a break and the shine of another concrete road.
Eventually, they clarified, and Caliope could hear what they were saying.
"It's not that," one voice said, a woman's voice. "All things considered, especially with how fucking promiscuous he is, I don't really care about you two fucking. I care about him. He's been my friend for a while, and he's in a bad place."
"I did not initiate it," a second woman's voice said. "I know what he's going through. I don't want to do anything that would hurt him worse than he's already hurting."
"See, that's the thing," the first voice said. "I don't know that's true. Let me be clear, okay? I don't trust you. I know where you come from, and while I believe that you are your own person, with your own goals and whatever, I know that all of... You, comes from her. And the reason I came here is because I want her dead. I want her to die in agony, and you're a part of her."
"I am not her."
"I believe you. My concern is how much like her you are."
"Are we just going to talk about how little you trust me the whole day?"
"Nope!" the first voice said brightly. "I was just wrapping up. So if you do anything, and I mean anything, that I could possibly see as a betrayal, I'll cut your arms and legs off, stop you from healing, and feed you to Shadow."
"I understand," the second voice said coldly.
"I knew you would," said the first voice as two figured came around a bend on the other road. Both were young women, maybe in their mid twenties. One had jet-black hair with blonde roots pulled back into a ponytail, and was dressed in black tactical gear with goth makeup on. The other also had black hair, but it was longer and let free to fall down her back. She wore body armor over a t-shirt and gray cargo pants. The goth one carried a rifle, and the way her arm was casually draped over the stock suggested that she was very familiar with it.
Caliope froze, knowing that the slightest sound might draw their attention. She crossed her fingers, hoping the others wouldn't give away their presence, either. The two women walked, silent now, down the road, heading in the same direction they were moving in.
She watched them pass. When they vanished, she waited a minute or two to be sure before she returned to find the others gone.
She didn't have long to wonder where they'd gone, though. A moment after she got there, while she was still deciding which way they must have gone, the dead bushes rustled and began to shed leaves. Griselda and the two hulks appeared.
"Why'd you hide?" Caliope asked.
"There was a dude flying around," Johnny said.
"It was him," Griselda hissed, her face a mask of anger.
"The guy from the TV show," Bob added, though Caliope already knew who her sister was referring to. "The one that led the attack on the compound."
"Shit," Caliope cursed.
"What are we going to do?" Griselda demanded. Caliope held up a hand, demanding time to think.
After a moment, she gave voice to her thoughts.
"He has to be with the two I saw. At some point, he's got to land. If we follow them, we could get the jump on them."
Griselda's angry look turned into an eager grin. "I want him, after we kill the other two."
"Shit," Bob said. "If the other two are hot, I want one of them."
"So we'll kill one and capture two," Johnny said. "You recognize these fuckers, what do we have to deal with?"
"Nothing important," Caliope said. "Nothing dangerous, at least not once my sister and I take away their magic."
They all shared in Griselda's eager look, then.

2023.03.22 07:54 Felipernani Final Itinerary Check - 15 days in Tokyo with a short trip to Kyoto & Osaka starting next week

Hi! I'm headed to Tokyo on Mar 30th and I just finished what I think is my final itinerary plan for the trip. Tried to use Google Maps to shorten distances and I think it looks okay. To be noted, I'm not usually someone who spends too much time in tourist places, like the shrines and parks. I'm also traveling alone so that speeds up the process.

2023.03.22 03:15 CH1CK3NW1N95 [M4A] Misadventures in Duskwall

"The criminal is the creative artist; the detective only the critic." -G.K. Chesterton
The moon setting in the west marked the end of another day for the folk in the city of Duskwall, and Monty was glad to be out on one of his evening walks.
He had all he needed for such an activity; the discreetly-armored clothes on his back, the trusty knife and pistol on his belt, and the wits in his head. His walk took him from the industrial district of Coalridge where machines belched smoke and noise and workers labored to keep the Imperium's production needs met, to the many-hued vice dens of Silkshore where any imaginable pleasure or illicit product could be found if one knew how to look and who to ask. From the views of the Spark Wall that kept out the legions of ghosts from the Deathlands, to the park that was lit with trees than glowed with light both eerie and comforting. He saw many people on his wanderings that night; a Bluecoat patrol he had narrowly escaped, a thief he knew well and claimed several favors from, a crew of Railjacks that had helped him with smuggling operations on the trains in days not long past, and many others, for he was a well-connected man with a finger in many pies and an ear to many grounds.
As he wandered, he thought, for he found it claiming and focusing to walk through the city, following no path and pursuing no errand. The Crows had collapsed, following one daring heist too many, and had cast the Crow's Foot, the city's most crime-ridden district, into war as the scavengers convened to pick up the pieces and fill the power vacuum. The Crows had been the uncrowned kings and queens of the city's underworld, which meant in the end that they fell with the force of a dying leviathan, tearing asunder the web of grudges and favors they had woven and throwing the city's underworld into chaos.
Monty knew he had a responsibility to his own crew, and he intended to make something of them out of all this. They had been getting by, starting from the bottom, subsisting on the crumbs and scraps that fell their way when the big players were done with the feast of the day. But with the old powers fallen, the field had been leveled and untold hordes of wealth and power were up for grabs. Monty planned to see that his crew prospered, for they were his friends, his comrades, his dear confidants for whom he would match through fire and lay down life and limb.
As the night grew from young to full, Monty had gotten his thoughts in order, and walked back to his crew's lair. It wasn't much, but it serves them well enough, and if Monty had his way, it would be expanded before the year was out. He stopped to get some chicken and greens, wanting to treat the crew with something more than simple eel pie and rice portage. When he got to the crew's lair, he gladly took up his role as the cook, and began making dinner, chatting all the while and enjoying the company of friends.
When dinner was served, goat cheesecake was in the oven, and beer was being poured, Monty looked at all the crew with his trademark grin; the one that said he had a plan and something very worth noting was about to happen.
"Boys and girls, Crow's Foot's gone to shit and back, things are starting to heat up all across the city, and if you're all with me, we're gonna use all that to take our place as top dogs and be living like kings by this time next year."
He leaned back in his seat, and raised a glass of Skovland beer that tasted like mulling spices and the far-off promise of victory."
"But first, a toast, to the beginning of something big."
Hi there! Thanks for reading :D
I find myself driven, as of late, to indulge my love for the Blades in the Dark TTRPG and for written roleplay, so why not do both at the same time? Two good things at the same time are usually guaranteed to be even more gooder, except well-mixed cocktails and life-saving surgery, but my point stands in general.
I'd like to do a story of a small, low-down criminal gang rising in the ranks of the underworld in the Victorian, gothic-steampunk/dieselpunk, occultish city of Duskwall. The setting is rich and there's a lot of detail to go into, so it's impossible to give a truly comprehensive pitch while keeping it simple, but if I had to summarize this setting in three sentences, it would be as follows:
"The sun vanished from the sky a thousand years ago, alongside the Gates of Death shattering and allowing ghosts and occult magic into the world. The city is a mashup of London, Paris, and Venice, in roughly Victorian times with a hefty helping of steampunk/dieselpunk/electropunk technology al-la Dishonored meets The Order 1886. The city is home to a lot of criminals, with a thriving, complex underworld that has recently been thrown into chaos due to the toppling of its most powerful gang, and in which our characters will take part."
If that setting intrigues you, then I'd be happy to explain more! Also, no knowledge of the setting is needed, I plan to play a character in the gang who is knowledgeable about the setting and its people so I can be a guide both in the story and out. My basic plan is that we'd each plan a few characters in the gang, as well as create the gang itself together.
If anyone is curious, I'm male, 24 years of age, and from the EST time zone. I've been roleplaying for about half my life and playing Shadowrun for 6 or 7 years, so while I'm not a grandmaster of either, I think I know enough about both to create an awesome story with someone who wants to work with me. I'd be happy to send a writing sample to anyone who wants to verify that for themselves. I can usually crack off at least a few posts a week; I try to go for one or more a day as much as I can, with moderate success since my job is taxing and I sometimes don't have the energy to write much. But I'll always do my best to keep up, since this is one of my favorite hobbies and I love this setting a hell of a lot. I can generally put two or three good-sized paragraphs in my post, sometimes more depending on what's going on. I'd also like my partner to be interested in planning out the story from the start, since this is your story too if you decide to play it out with me.
I'd ideally like somebody who can match my average of 2 or 3 paragraphs, who is 20 or over, who writes in 3rd person, and who communicates openly; otherwise, I'm open to writing with anybody I vibe with, :). Come one come all; if you're interested in this prompt (and please include the word "Machiavellian" in your message to let me know you read it all), then I'm interested in talking more with you about it. I can't address every detail or question someone might have in this post, so if you have any questions or comments, PM me here and I'll be glad to answer them.
I hope to hear from you soon! :D

2023.03.22 01:10 Jean_dodge67 First draft o a narrative timeline of the chaotic medical evacuation /aftermath, combining what has been made public - livestream, news accounts, b-roll videos, helicopter footage, etc. - needs input pls

TLDR This is a crude and rough initial attempt to place many known events into a narrative order with some semblance of a time stamp to them. It concerns the time of 12:50 to aproximately 3pm? or later the day of the shootings.
lengthy intro, feel free to skip this part
You will see I don't get too far on the time stamp part, and I'm sure I'm leaving out known and likely vital events we know of, too. But the sources are scattered and their narratives jumbled as well. It does begin to sketch a picture though, to tell the story as best as I can from the top of my head. I'd like to make this a lot more factual and probably should make it a lot less "editorial," as well. But it is like the old joke, what do you call a thousand lawyers at the bottom of the lake? "A good start."
I'm POSITIVE some of this is wrong. But I wanted to start somewhere before it all gets turned to mush in my brain. I keep notes but later they don't always make perfect sense to me because all the information comes in from every angle and it's spinning like a top, usually as well. . I'm not a historian, or a true crime reporter. I'm an amateur on the internet in this regard, please forgive me and help me get it right where you can. I dont mean to offend anyone, either. Hopefully we are all in this together, to establish the truth here. How can we have any real opinions or accountability or make the best policy decisions moving forward, or honor the fallen, or sue the heck out of one another, for that matter, without first establishing the basic facts.
It's just what sloughed off my keyboard this morning as I woke and once again tried to make sense of what makes no sense. why, ten months on we have to peice this together from corporate news accounts' hastily assembled snippets of B-roll, local rumor, internet conjecture (mine and yours, dear readers), leaks and bodycams edited and truncated by a hired PR firm for the city of Uvalde, and other odd sources coming across the ether and "over the transom," meaning we don't know who told us this.
This will be a partial timeline from a shattered afternoon where almost everyone present was in some sort of a state of shock, yet waving cheap and crude videocameras of various sorts and disordered eventual custody around in back of a school no one paid much attention to before, and that will soon be razed to the ground. And about which NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE other than to board up the windows and wipe up the blood. One important source seems to be a "whistleblower" who may in fact be a "bad actor" working to just help spread out bad news as slowly and poorly as possible, selectively omitting the worst of the worst. Who can say?
It's a portrait of chaos, drawn from chaos. A vision of hell from someone who wasn't even there, but can't stop imagining it somehow. I have little idea why. Some of my friends' children were there, but they were not in the 4th grade. It's probably all none of my business, my only real connection is that my children go to public schools in Texas. And I helped pay for these public records that are so well hidden. That at least means something to me. The rest just seems to spring from common decency and having an empathetic heart. I couldn't rightly say why any of us are here almost a year later but we are. It all started with a bang. And it all ends in sin and tears, like my grandmother would say.
The TLDR is that 21 people were murdered and a bunch of people who were only attempted to be murdered were mishandled by idiot cowards and dragged hither and yon while parents were tackled, tased and traumatized. The rest is just the gory sad details.
Don't read it if you can can help it. Horesman, pass by. But if you must, know this: it isn't pretty and it likely won't fix much of anything. But maybe just maybe it's part of path towards eventual healing or as Senator Gutierrez says, looking forward someday to "a slightly duller ache of pain."
There is no good place to start this narrative, the story of the "Aftermath." This is the wrong place but it's where I began so here it is:
Draft Narrative:
If it was Noah and AJ who ended up in an ambulance with Mayah, it seems like one of them may have originally been on the bus but taken off fairly quickly. The narrative from the lawsuit by the bus driver seems to say a boy was put on her bus but quickly taken off because of the seriousness of his injuries, or perhaps like with Mrs Mireles, the frantic cops seemed to have tunnel vision and couldn't find the ambulances at first and when one was finally right in front of them, they stumbled towards it instead.
It's also related that a dead child was placed into one ambulance, and that's why there were three in the other. Extrapolating from there it's also possible Mrs Mireles was eventually taken off the sidewalk and put in the ambulance with the dead boy still inside, or maybe she was moved to an ambulance the finally arrived from Main Street holding area.
The WP/TT/PP story has an excellently detailed animation of where ambulances and school busses came and went, beginning with the initial two ambulances. But it doesn't say who was placed inside any of them. The lead bus leaves the line at the funeral home where at least two livestream cams had caught the frantic scramble of LEOs to march and carry kids from the school to the bus. I'm not sure how many kids were on the bus. I haven't even re-read the lawsuit account yet.
Finding a sync point in order to put time stamps to the animation and the citizen livestream recordings for us poor saps denied full versions of public records videos is difficult. It seems likely the bulk of vehicle movement animation is drawn from DPS helicopter video and of course the funeral home cameras. We don't have those, but we can see snippets of them her and there the DPS helicopter at least. It's the one with the rangefinder marking and what looks almost like a weapon system crosshairs superimposed on screen. The story itself mentions LEO bodycam as well. Don't forget Crimson Elizondo is said to have ridden the "BORTAC express" school bus and wore an operating bodycam.
But the buses began to move - then stalled - before 1:01. That seems to tell us a few things - the "triage" was perfunctory and swift in getting the kids who could walk - and some who were carried - from the school to the BORTAC Express. But it took more than just one or two minutes, it seesm like it took almost ten to get children onto the BORTAC Express, but less than ten probably. We know one child was so wounded he was taken off the bus and put into an ambulance. likely the one manned by the EMT who treated thee kids, Mayah, AJ and Noah. That's not certain tho.
Two busses in the lead turn left onto Geraldine. Others go right. Were some on a route to civic center? Or to hospital? I need to check routes.
In a sick, sad moment on the Adam Ladezma livestream, seemingly after 12:50 and before 1:01 a US Marshall threatens parents, telling them harshly to move behind the busses or else their kids won't be brought out, and that the present delay is their fault, for standing on the grass off the street north of the busses, blocking no one and nothing. It seems like the scrum of agents are waiting inside, calling and stalling for a path to be cleared for them, rather than trusting that the public wants the same thing they want - for medical aid to be swift.
Some 5-10 minutes earlier the news had spread by word of mouth that the shooter was "in custody" or dead, it seems. The crowd is indeed increasingly distraught, frantic and hostile to LEOs. Some had likely seen a stretcher come out of the school. possibly with the dead child who was locked into an ambulance. And then abandoned, visibly, to some who could see it just across the street, undoubtedly. An air of pandemonium was cresting. No doubt many heard the gunfire at 12:50 or at minimum saw the LEOs n the west doorway courtyard react, after more than an hour of standing around trying to look tough, or whatever.
Then, a gaggle of LEOs, possibly BORTAC and seemingly although not visibly, DPS Crimson Elizondo among them rushes the scrum of children to the first bus, number 17, as seen on a livestream video from the parking lot at a distance in a blurry video. All hell breaks loose. On the door side/ funeral home side, a livestream cam catches some of the chaos as a distraught father is tackled by LEOs who prevent him from reaching his son. The crowd screams in protest, and women begin to loudly and openly wail in abject agony. They've seen THEIR children are bleeding, wounded, in shock, or worse. and all they are told is to "stay back" by the same people who didn't go in an hour ago and get them out.
They should be livid and they should be cursing and shouting, IMO. In some regards, these cops are accessory to murder IMO. A judge will never likely assess that. But they've kidnappend the kids and held them in police custody, arguably but not prevented the shooter from killing them at will for 82 minutes. And they've physcialy blocked those who were willing to immediately intervene.
On the other side of the bus, citizen Adam Ladezma, whose nieces and nephews go to Robb "films" or livestream-captures a child who, on encouragement from his family crawls out the back window of bus 17, the "BORTAC Express" as I'm calling it and is helped down and spirited away from the custody of the lawmen. As you watch, it's likely you feel a sigh of relief. These are poor custodians of children, one is likely assured despite the breakdown order occurring. Anyone would want to get away from their custody and the child readily complies. "When you find yourself going thru hell, keep going."
So there are all these things happening and more, and I'm attempting to put them into a coherent timeline. This is a bad, preliminary attempt to do so but I think the clues exist to do a much better job of outlining the actions. Perhaps the first pass should just be to name all the things that we see or know happened, in whatever order we have. I'm sorta doing that here but not in bullet-outline form, pardon the very poor choice of words.
But as the busses soon get moving, we know the BORTAC Express driver has locked the back door and that she sees Eva Mireles "dead" on the sidewalk being given CPR or at least lying there bleeding. And we know a child is taken off the bus by who she says is BORTAC, I think. She's made her initial turn onto Geraldine and the bus behind her follows her. lead. Does it have kids on it, the #2 bus? Does it have a LEO on it, or instructions where to go? I don't think so. It's just going. There may be a picture of aaLEO on the street speaking to the driver, IIRC, Ill try to find it. The driver wants the heck out of there, who wouldn't? Maybe it hopes to pick up more students and wishes to be closer. Seemingly, no one is put on board as it waits on Gerldine that I can see evidenc of however. It follows the Express off the scene.
The busses move far enough that the #3 and 4, 5, busses can turn right. As they do so, they too seem to stall as a helicopter comes in to land. I think it is the DPS chopper but I cannot be certain. If so, it's potentially one of the things that has delayed the arrival of the medical Air Flite choppers, although that sounds like mainly an oversight or foible of the Medina Fire chief, too. One of the choppers has blood supplies. The end up not getting used at the scene. I'm not sure if they go to the Uvalde hospital, the blood supplies, or back to a Trauma 1 center in San Antonio.
Dust covers the sky and drifts eventually onto the wounded (Eva Mireles, probably, gets covered in it) and and the ambulances that are newly arriving. A famous long-lens photo shows what looks like a 9/11style ash blizzard or. snowstorm-from-hell on the scene looking down Geraldine from the front of the school to chaos, disorder. We move quickly from two ambulances, one locked with a dead child inside and the other overcrowded with kids bleeding on the captains chair, to six or eight ambulances.
As the DPS helicopter moves towards the playground, the camera swings back to the west entrance and the bus lane. A stretcher gurney seems to be going IN to a newly arrived ambulacne. (See the first video WP/TT/PP story) Another gurney seemingly is OUT of another folded low on the ground by the tail of a ambulace. The tail end of the #2 bus is still there but begins to leave.
DPS tactical from all the way up in Austin has arrived somehow at 12:58 (too late, they were always going to be too late for the kids) in the midst of the bungled evacuations. Somewhere before all this they sprint to the courtyard by the west door, choking the passage of anyone. News helicopter seems to capture some of it, as well as news cameras down at the front of the school, and still photogs, too. it looks to all of them like something important is happening. It isn't. Not there, and not with them.
Somewhere in here SWAT from San Antonio enters the mix. I'm very loose on that timing. They're hard to tell apart from DPS tactical or SRT or whatever they are called. Is it them that runs as a big squad? I'm unsure. Nor can I spot where BORTAC huddles up afterwards. I think they stay inside the building because we don't spot them outside, not at tthe west and not at the south. They didn't all stay on the bus they commandeered. DPS Crimson Elizondo did, but who else?
We know ambulances have crawled across peoples yards, criss-crossing like a post apocalypse freeway scene to get around abandoned cop cars blocking the roads. They start arriving all from one direction as the second bus behind BORTAC Express finally manages to scoot off from the front of the school.
There's some sort of "load and go, load and go" action here that we don't have much information about unless we extrapolate what child was wounded how and eliminate the trio of AJ, Noah and Mayah from them, possibly.
At least one medical helicopter manages to land, to no avail at some point. Everyone is racing somewhere in an ambulance. Xavier, to his demise somewhere west of Hondo. Mrs Mirales never leaves the ambulance at the curb, as she desperately attended to possibly at near-gunpoint after UPC cops and attending EMTs have seemingly furiously pumped what little blood she had left onto the sidewalk, because her heart stopped from the traumatic way she was dragged from the room, seemingly and of course her multiple gunshot wounds from an AR-15. The "load and go" kids must also include the teacher from 111, who has first been placed in a cop car, or attempted- he didnt fit - and then onto the tailgate/ lift gate of a fire department truck? Possibly the one in the funeral home lot, which must have freaked the crowd out to witness, then finally into one of the "maze runner" arriving ambulances.
Again, I refer us all to the WP/TT/PP animation for clues to that. Somehow, "load and go" period ends. When? When the ambulances stop moving, whenever that is.
And then, finally, Rangers lock the scene down, even closing the gate to the west door. It's now a crime scene and they are in charge of the investigation. The Justice of the Peace, acting as coroner is enroute to pronounce the less than 18? bodies as dead. Unsure on the math here. Three left the classroom with a pulse who died. 21 died. (plus the shooter, #22). One body was locked in an ambulance. How many left in the classrooms when the rangers lock it down? 22 minus three who died and one who was improperly removed and locked in a (much needed) ambulance. 18 bodies including the shooters, is that right?
Eventually each is designated a letter of the alphabet and DNA sampled on site so the pieces of children and teachers can be sorted and reassembled, or at least distributed to the funeral homes in the right batches. Several are said to be more or less headless. On one, a pair of Green converse with a little heart-shaped sharpie drawn on the toe, that aids in identifaction.
Parents have been told to go to the civic center. Many are going to race to every hospital they can think of, including San Antonio instead. Mothers, fathers and grandparent must all separate to cover more ground, adding to the panic and desperation. Some have been told to go to the high school, but the high school gets some sort of possible gun threat? Again, NO ONE IS IN CHARGE.
On the curb near the front of the school sits Lexi's Rubio's mother and deputy father, utterly bereft. He's been kept out of the classroom but seems to have been told the definite news their child is not coming out. Curious news crews videotape and photograph them in their grief, until the mother of one parent seemingly arrives to join them. Eventually, they thread their way onto the campus to get away from the news anchors assembled by the school sign in the same intersection where Officer Hill had parked to witness Coronado's "wild ride" at 11:31 or so. 82 minutes and then some have passed, as have at least 19 souls? by now, some still fighting for life, the shooter one among the many dead, yet separate in category only. The blood of all spreads to mingle in the footprints and pools of fluids on the floors the gruesome CSI process begins in earnest.
In the queue on the video projector's mechanism, "Lilo and Stitch" awaits the Disney happy ending. Elvis won't be singing the finale BURNING LOVE today. Elvis has left the building. Elvis is deader than Elvis. And the children are going to meet him in Heaven, if you believe what the King does and loved to sing about. "Farther along, we'll understand it./ Farther along, we'll understand why."
