American Dating German man

Only rarely will a “dream man” show up with a pack and if he does, he may even go as far to conceal it to eliminate judgment or a long lecture. However, anywhere from a glass to four of alcohol may be enjoyed during the course of dinner along with some under-the-influence behaviors. ... 10 Differences Between Dating American And European ... Germans don’t date the way Americans do, they date much more informal and often it’s not clear from the beginning what the enterprise is about, unless clear signals have been sent and understood. It’s more of a mutual sensing. Often it goes like t... Laurel, THANK YOU for this post!!! Although I am dating a German-American, the same qualities are there. I thought there was something wrong with me because I was not getting that romantic response, but he is exactly like you described. My man is sweet, literal, pragmatic, and does many acts of service. The definitions of a relationship with a German man: If dating a German, you should be aware that there are no formal relationship titles that seem common in other parts of the world. So if you need to know the status of your relationship, here are a few hints and tips that should enable you to discover just where you stand: ... The Chinese women are absolutely intrigued by North American men, specifically American men. China is a great destination to visit, their amazing culture, food, beautiful landscapes and rich history is not worth missing. If you are a single American man visiting, chances are you’ll come home with a beautiful bride as well. 12. Ukraine The American way is loud and even arrogant at times. 10. American men like to date around. The dating culture involves trying out many different options at the same time. Call it the revolving door or hedging – there’s the idea in the American approach to dating that there’s always something better around the corner. With this said, German guys are aware of American dating culture, so they won’t fault us entirely for wanting to be treated like princesses. They may even adapt (ever so slightly) to our expectation. On average, I’ve found German guys more respectful. No catcalling on the streets or following you around to get your attention. For this reason dating German men can be somewhat of a challenge for a woman who is not accustomed to the customs of German people.

[RF] - A young man struggles with the passing of time

2020.10.21 01:10 TheModerateNihilist [RF] - A young man struggles with the passing of time

THE FEAST
It was the early morning hours for Mister M., which means it was ten in the morning, and his groggy, unshaven head was unevenly shaking on his unwashed pillow. A half-migraine was keeping him up at night, all nights, for at least six months. He developed a strong case of tinnitus, buzzing in the ears - it would drive him mad at the beginning, and he swore he would see a doctor. And so he went. They gave him a cream of some kind, the kind of useless thing that bored, middle aged doctors prescribe when they can't deal with an overload of complaining, nagging, insane from pain and hurt patients. So he took it and all was fine. For a time. A week, at most.
The next time our dear Mister M., developed a splitting tinnitus, the stress lead him to shout at his supervisor, Team Leader S, on the factory floor, swearing and spitting like a mad man. Perhaps, noticing this, Mister S simply walked away and left Mister M to his own devices. Mister M, feeling euphoric over this victory - i showed him! i showed them all! - finished his shift, and like always, spent the next few hours attempting to fall asleep.
It was after two months of intense and annoying pain, which lead his mind to push him to the brink of mental exhaustion. He decided to go again. However - a new disease happened. Covid-19 they called it - Coronavirus. People were either dropping like flies, or not dropping like flies. It was a conspiracy. The Chinese built a lab. The Americans are up to something. NATO is preparing for land invasion of Manchuria. Illuminati. Jews. Bill Gates. At work, at the counter, everyone was chatting - without masks of course, shouting and gesticulating with their arms, how it is all a scheme, a damn ruse. Too many people, they said. So someone decided it was time for humanity to go.
This was amusing to Mister M., until he had to go to the Otorhinolaryngology department, to check his damn ear. As the people in lines were discussing this damn covid thing - "Oh please, it's just a flu!" "You know, a good shot of votka makes it go away!", "We'll see how funny it is when you are in an ICU" - the nurse, a fat, bored old lady, told him - NO VISITORS. All nurses are currently occupied. Go to an emergency clinic with this paper. So he went. NO VISITORS. All hands on deck for Covid. Sanitized, scrubbed, and uninterested in your damn ear!
So, Mister M., went home, mumbling about the damn healthcare and work, life, and so on. His mother, Lady M., called him that same day, and told him news, with a contagious amount of happiness - he is going to be an uncle.
All this happened nine months ago. By this time, Mister M., like always, got used to the pain. It will go away. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. But today, he took a free day from work, got up, lit up a cigarette, and waited for his mother to come and pick him up. The buzzing is less annoying when there is sound, so beep, the PC got turned on, and music was playing, a silent, smooth mix of melancholy and past joys.
Mister M., is a strange fellow. He still remembers the shock when he was told he is going to become an uncle. He was not happy. Not happy at all. Was it right to say he felt suddenly old, and frightened? These types of thoughts would sometimes attack him at night, not letting him rest. For the past few months, the fear, anxiety of it all - life, work, struggle - deepened. He discovered it is no longer the buzzing that keeps him awake at night but terror, a deep, profound terror of closing one's eyes and feeling nothing.
The ceiling was too high, eyes darting here and there, silence so chilly it felt mesmerizing, like an avalanche, or a tsunami, leaving only the sound of his buzzing ears in a desolate, flimsy apartment. Oh, those nights! The night! The terror of lying in wait for a new day, a new work shift knowing you are half dead from the pain of... loneliness.
It was a constant struggle not to retreat into one's shell. Oh, how hard it is! To just say - to hell with it all! Sit at home, and do nothing! Nothing! Procrastrinate! Stare at a wall! Play games, read novels, finish reading that damn Asimov book you keep putting off! Yes, it annoys you that the characters feels more like a wandering will than anything else, a perfect rationalist, so logical it makes you feel deflated, but finish it and...
Mister M., is 28 this year.
His father died in prison four years ago. Back then, Mister M., was, i would say a wonderful human. He was young, fresh, full of hopes. He woke up, without a splitting headache, without the leg pain his metal strengthened work boots gave him, without back pain, and off he went to his university. A sociology major, Mister M., was fascinated by humans as social animals - his own father, a strange, broody fellow, went in and out of jail due to forgery - forgery! in the 21st century! - was a walking encyclopedia of psychological, and social anxieties and issues. Always alone, with no one at his side, he would sit at his abandoned village home with only an occasional petty crook to visit him for his services. However, a father is a father.
The phone rang. Mister M., at this point in front of the building, looked up at the unfamiliar number. "Hello" he said. "Good day, am i speaking to Mister M.? "Yes, i am him" "We regret to inform you your father has passed away on an operating table"
"Would you like us to cremate the remains?"
II
Bastard. He never told him he had a blood clot before he went to jail. This is a painful memory for Mister M., a reminiscence of pure pain. He broke down in tears in front of the building, his future, called his mother, wailing and sobbing how his father died. Operating table? What operating table. He was there for petty forgery!
...It was a cold, scummy day. Frost-cold, heart-cold, windless day of endless snow. The man was a bum. A damn bum. He was a village kid waiting to go back home to burry his father on a bus stop. No drivers licence, no nothing. You don't really need a driver's licence in his country, not with the highly developed bus system of Europe. But still... his father died and there he was, freezing, his heart like his hands numb and cold, waiting, for a damn bus. What a pathethic man, what a miserable, worthless man he felt at this point. Sure, he was 24, 25, but still, he felt, my father died a dog's death, and here i am, waiting for someone else to take me home. Oh, sweet home! How do we meet again!
The cigarette burned out. For the past four years, since the death, the smell of burning nicotine is his haze to keep away the thoughts or make them tolerable. Without the smoke, the thoughts are despair. With them, they are mere philosophy - a young man thinking something while dragging smoke. Dragging smoke, choking. Coughing.
...Life was better back then. When is she going to arrive anyway? Such a long day.
...The death was a strange thing. Youth, meet death. Mister M., met his mother, back in the old city, and back to the village they went. To his old home.
...The house, lonely and desolate, had a single old man, Mister M.'s grandfather, sobbing and wailing, holding a piece of paper in his hands - an official telegram of Notice Of Death. Motherfuckers! How are they so fast in this, but this country is such a dump!
Mister M., had to go and buy a coffin. But he had no money for one. Where does one find a money for a coffin? What is the difference between mahogany and that other, what was it called - cedar? How does a young college student buy a coffin?
Lady M., in the end paid for everything. She looked at her broken son, as he walked across the old rooms. The walls were moldy. A poster of Che Guevara was hiding a hole on the wall. Dead dog in the old apple garden. Endless mounds of bottles in an old silo, plastic bottles of soda, detergent... The bathtub turned yellow-brown from filth. The roof caved in and was leaking. The old man lived a dog's life. The old home from Mister M.'s memories, a happy place, clean and wonderful, was now a decayed, withered old husk of past. Time stood still in this house - in his room, everything was exactly as he left it, a coat of dust freezing the frame.
Two funerals. Father and son, lying together. Mister M's father, and grandfather, who died four days later, in old age, with nothing to live for anymore. They hated each other's guts while alive, with the old man shouting at his son for being a petty criminal. They lived off his pension, a measly sum the old man earned through forty years of truck driving. Look at them now...
It was a cosmic funeral. The ice cold body. The priest droning strange syllables. An ice death. A frost death. The candles, swaying in the wind of an old village church. So damn cold. Mister M., was at the front, carrying the coffin. How poetic.
Then came the struggle. The debtors. The crooks, the "friends of the deceased".
The state.
Unpaid bills for six years. How the hell is the electrical bill half a million? Oh, right. The deceased had a friend who worked in electrical maintenance...
And so, the house was sold, inheritance split between Mister M., and Miss M., his sister. The debts paid off, the leftover money split, so the days passed. Mister M., could never go back to studying - to pointless he felt. Betrayal. He never knew. That his father had a blood clot. He was a failure of a son, and he had nothing to prove. A son of a criminal, is worthless.
It was nice, for a time. Waking up, and doing nothing. Such is the joy of youth - you could do nothing and still smile. Stare at a wall, and giggle. Mister M., was a happy young man. I have money! Now... Now i just rest! Take it easy! Life is long! Enjoy those games you always wanted to play! Read, educate yourself, breathe, live! Seize the day!
Another two years passed. The money ran out. So, off to the first factory he went. A cable factory, for german cars. Two more years, or was it less? Time has become muddled to him these days as he finds not much happening that was important.
And, here he is now, lighting his third cigarette, thinking about it all. Man, does it all fly away... My sis has a second son! The first one was born when i was 22 or 23... what is he now, eight, nine? Whatever. She has her own life, not my damn business... Good for her.
...I remember when V was a little baby, it was so fascinating watching him grow. Well, the divorce was hard. Still, alimony. God, i wish i was a hot chick! Just spread my legs and - gold. Set for life.
...The day is unusually pleasant for the time of the year. Sometimes, it is a good day, a perfect day. Still, a nervousness he did not know haunts him, a silent, creeping fear. Death. The cigarette keeps it away, the thought-death, the death-feel, oh, the cigarette went out.
A knocking at the apartment door. His mother came.
Time to leave.
II
"Did you just wake up?"
"Nope!"
"Give your mother a hug, uncle! I am so happy!"
"Yeah, me too."
"Alright, let's go! Now, when we arrive, i have a boquet of flowers, two actually, give one to your sister, and one to her mother-in-law. Wait, dont' go in that! Come on, dress something nice. I'm waiting at the car."
He could not hear his mother's incessant droning, her cheerful chatting, since his sister came home from the hospital she was giddy as a girl in love, yet, Mister M., had an ill sense of foreboding. It happened before, right? Everything will be the same. He even packed his cigarettes.
They parked in front of a huge, messy workshop. His sister's husband sells ice cream machines, buys them, resells them. Travels often - to Poland, England, Germany, etc. It is all very confusing and intimidating. A small place man. A humble man, our Mister M. Maybe a little cowardly.
...They went through the gates. A huge, inner garden. Connected houses. Three cars. Upper class. They went in. His first nephew greeted him joyfully - "Uncle"! He has not seen him for half a year. No longer a baby, no longer small. A young boy. His sister greeted him. And there, on the couch, a small baby laid sleeping.
Is this real? Is all this a dream? This, this... perfect life. Greetings and kisses. Oh, look, the mother-in-law, and father-in-law came. The first son is sitting on the couch, playing games on a tablet. The baby is sleeping. Oh look! It smiled! How cute! Mister M., went outside for a smoke. A sudden feeling was waiting to burst out. A feeling of inescapable sadness.
The rest of the hours passed in torment, torture, however, Mister M., smiled all the way through. Occasionally, he would try to start a conversation, however, the other person would look to someone else in the room, and he would stop talking, and just smile and nod his head.
The nurse came, to check up on the baby. The entire family was crying tears of joy, the husband filming the crying baby that was getting washed in a baby tub, then came the breastfeeding, and another cigarette. The new family. There were dogs in the yard, small and furry. Sparrows were chirping. The entire house felt full of life. The feeling of weariness, sadness, confusion, misery was threatening to crush him, so he breathed slowly, fuuuu, faaaa, keep it together. Don't ruin it with your breakdown. What a happy family.
He chatted with the husband. He took pictures with the baby, the mother-in-law, his mother and the baby, the first nephew and the baby and him, this person, that person... it was a perfect day. He saw his sister gently looking at the sleeping little one. And, above all, he felt... alone.
It was a moving picture, and his mind, his brain, was observing, copying the gestures of socially acceptable behaviour. He sat in his chair, looking at the people around him, with a feeling of such profound isolation, that he thought this is all an insane dream. The chatting women, the drinking men - he too drank, as is custom - the cartoon on the over-the-damn-wall-with-surround-TV making happy, upbeat noises.
"Well, it was a great day, but we have to leave now, i am sure you all need some rest too."
"Come over anytime, please. Let's take a photo together, and i want one with your son too. I finally met you young man! I kept hearing about you!"
Smile. Smile, you damn bastard. Okay. Release those muscles, ease the grin slowly. Let's get the hell out of here.
IV
Mister M., went to the passenger seat, pale and gloomy. His throat was bobbing up and down, eyes half-closed, staring at the passing streets, at anything. Hands half-shaking, silent, slow breathing.
"Son, are you okay? You don't look so well"
"Mm."
Anything more, and he would burst into tears. Short sentences. Yes and no. Keep it cool. Don't make her worry.
"Where do you want to go? Want to go for a drive?"
"Home"
Lady M., opened and closed her mouth in a thin line. An uneasiness crept into the moving vehicle, the son, her own son, who she knew for so long, has been acting... strange for the past few months. Oh, whatever. He's a young man, he'll work it out. The job is probably stressfull.
"Drop me off here."
"Why? I can take you home if you want."
"Want to take a walk"
And so, off our Mister M., went. Sniffling, he walked slowly, keeping it in. Breathe. Look at the people. He went into his backyard - a communal one, with a few, one floor houses, old houses. His shaky legs brought him to his apartment, and he just opened the door which he left unlocked.
It did not take him a minute to start sobbing. At first, he tried to control it, but the more he tried, the more he suffered. They say comparison is the mother of misery.
Soon, the silent sobbing started in a slow, prolonged, and silent wailing. Not to alert the neighbours. Play some music. So, Mister M., played some music, and wailed. He grabbed his aching chest, and wailed, like a wounded beast, a struggling, primal echo of nothingness bursting out. The empty apartment offering no solace, no comfort, no happiness. Not anymore.
He went to the bathroom, and in the mirror, he saw him, an overgrown, and sad child. Bloodshot eyes and snuffy nose, quivering lips and washed out face, unshaven and scraggly beard, and... nothing else.
He went to his room, and sat to calm his nerves. On the desk was a bank notice - a piece of paper notifying him of his savings - 900 euros. He used to be proud of this. It made him feel like an adult. Like a man. Now, it mocked him, two years of brutal factory work, and 900 euros is all of his life. His brand new PC, which he bought to play games, once a source of joy, now hummed lazily, uselessly. Hasn't played a game in months. Can't get into them. Feels, strange, out of place, the voice in the back of his head telling him, whispering, you are out of your debt and time, there is nothing here for you. The house which he sold, why did he agree to it? His sister is now a rich young lady, a center of the family, a young mother. At least, in his village home, he could disappear. No paying rent. No forced waking up. No night terror. But, off it went, and now, no work means no roof over the head.
...The wailing went on and on. The self-pity.
...It used to be so simple. You would wake up and play some games and read some manga and the world was frozen in time. You were young, and full of possibilities. There was a perfect girl out there, she will find him. She will find him. Friends too. Marriage was something adult, foreign, was he an overgrown fool? Or just... a coward. A romantic? Just like those girls, from those comic books... the perfect girl. She would say hi. Love him.
Mister M., has...
The phone rings. It's his mother.
"Hello."
"Hi, son. Are you okay? You looked terrible, but you did great at the gathering. Now, i know you might feel bad now, but everyone has their own time, so don't sit there and wallow in self-pity, don't worry and just enjoy life, okay?"
"No, i'm fine, mom. Thanks.
"Love you son."
"Love you too."
Tu-tu, ended the call.
Sigh. My good mother. Do you not know your son? There are always those left behind, those refusing or too scared to grow up. Guess i am one of them. Guess i am...
The tinnitus eased after the crying for Mister M., a happy occasion. Now, he stared blankly at the screen, occasionally sniffing, lighting one cigarette after another. He paid the damn thing a lot of money but, the games changed. The times changed. He could no longer play long hours, no longer was time waiting for him. He felt at that moment old and weary, dry, brittle. Not a single friend since high-school and university. Always alone. It used to be enjoyable. So good. The anime shows, the new games, when did it all become so hard to track? New games, he found he did not know when they came out? What is this? When did they make this... And no one to play with. Suddenly, finishing that game... occasionally, he would look sideways, no one there. Close the game. Escape. Escape.
And the girl never came. Look at that. There were attempts, but Mister M., is far too dull of a person for the modern age. Humble, useless, analog in a digital age. Outdated. Nobody needs a humble man. Nobody marries a damn factory worker with no house, no car, and 900 euros of savings. Nobody drinks beer with him as he is too awkward to talk about cars, girls, sports, to make jokes, to keep up, be spontaneous. Natural. Always the one looking through the window.
Actually, that is a damn lie. Mister M., is immature, but, is the price for it really such deep loneliness? No women, but not even a single friend? Not even one. Oh, he talks occasionaly with foreigners online. But, that is all. His new hobby is to go to the farthest ATM in his small, sleepy town, put in his credit card, type in the PIN, check his balance... and go home. So, at nine in the evening, he did the same. Let's take a walk with him.
...The city is eerily empty. Covid has made the city lonely and depressed, it makes his tinnitus sound like a damn joke. The only ones are the youth - oh, look, he thinks, now they, not me, are the youth - going somewhere, smiling, laughing. How wonderful it is to laugh with someone. Look at them, all those young girls - why did i not date in highchool? I was such a fool. Such a coward. I thought she will simply show up, some perfect girl for me. Someone warm and gentle. She would laugh a tooty grin, be cheeky for me, we would be broke and share all we have to buy something nice. We would laugh and walk home together. Go out, go wild. I must grow up, he thinks. I must accept my flaws. My suffering. He goes, types in the PIN - oh, look, same amount. Oh, well. Let's go home.
...How does one who has no friends, find a friend in this day and age? Hmmm...
A cigarette. Mister M., used to be a handsome lad... He still is. Somewhat. And now, his moment of crisis, makes him feel good. This is growing up, he thinks. In ten years time i will be the strange one at family gathering. I will get asked - when are you getting married - and smile awkwardly. Until they forget i was there. I wish i could disappear slowly from everyone's sight and be happy. Be content. Have nothing and no one, and therefore, no suffering. It is the taste of normal life that made me understand the value of money. It is the loneliness of an empty home after a long shift that made me feel alone. Should i just not show up to work tomorrow? They all mock me anyway, ask me when am i gonna lose my virginity? Is this joking, then why does it produce pain? Well - never, i guess? Hmmm...
Should i just kill myself?
Mister M., are you lonely?
A girl, a pretty little blonde thing, occasionaly casts a glance at Mister M., who is currently buying a candy bar in the only store open since Covid after ten - he walked all over the town for an hour, looking at all the warmth of homes, and the silent streetwalkers. He notices, and avoids her gaze. Probably too young. She looks barely twenty. Too young now...
Mister M., will turn 29 soon. He talked with his mother, about buying a house. Something cheap. It terrifies him now. Knowing no one will knock on the door, and show up. Today, everyone forgot. It was a special day for him. His mother forgot too. Something special. An old custom. A religious feast, that goes from father to son. A patron saint. That is why he is free today,from work.Everyone forgot. Not like anyone would show up anyway...
Mister M., is googling "male loneliness". "Suicide", "2020 rpg games for pc", "2020 anime". He forgot his facebook password and can't log in. Too scared to give a phone number and retreive the account. Everyone, moved on... His old highschool best friend became a construction worker in Europe. Became cynical and bitter. Fucks whores. He fucked them in Antwerp, and in Netherlands too. How does a woman feel anyway?
He needs to wake up at 4 am, to go to work, but he knows he wont sleep. From loneliness, terror, thought, tinnitus, sadness, acceptance...
I am sorry, Mister M., i hope it was a good feast.

2020.10.19 05:50 amoavo A beautiful, healing, nuanced essay from Lyla June Johnston (Diné / Tsétsêhéstâhese / European lineages) - "My whole life I was taught to hide my European 'side.'"

Original source, pasted below: Writing for Peace (2016)
The Story of How Humanity Fell in Love with Itself Once Again By Lyla June Johnston
I spend a lot of time honoring and calling upon my Native American ancestors. I am keenly aware that my father’s people hold a venerable medicine as well. He has ancestry from the Great Sacred Motherland of Europe.
I have been called a half breed. I have been called a mutt. Impure. I have been told my mixed blood is my bane. That I’m cursed to have an Indian for a mother and a cowboy for a father.
But one day, as I sat in the ceremonial house of my mother’s people, a wondrous revelation landed delicately inside of my soul. It sang within me a song I can still hear today. This song was woven from the voices of my European grandmothers and grandfathers. Their songs were made of love.
They sang to me of their life before the witch trials and before the crusades. They spoke to me of a time before serfdoms and before Roman tithes. They spoke to me of a time before the plague; before the Medici; before the guillotine; a time before their people were extinguished or enslaved by dark forces. They spoke to me of a time before the English language existed. A time most of us have forgotten.
These grandmothers and grandfathers set the ancient medicine of Welsh blue stone upon my aching heart. Their chants danced like the flickering light of Tuscan cave-fires. Their joyous laughter echoed on and on like Baltic waves against Scandinavian shores. They blew worlds through my mind like windswept snow over Alpine mountain crests. They showed to me the vast and beautiful world of Indigenous Europe. This precious world can scarcely be found in any literature, but lives quietly within us like a dream we can’t quite remember.
As all this was happening, I peered into the flames of our Diné hoghan fireplace. These Ancient Europe voices whispered to my heart to help me understand. “See, our songs are not so different from your Diné songs,” they seemed to say with a smile.
In this moment, the moment I first acknowledged and connected with my beautiful European ancestors, I could do nothing but cry. It was one of those messy, snotty, shuddering cries, where my face flowed over with tears of joy and sorrow. It was the cry of a woman who met her grandmother for the first time. I always wondered where she was. What she looked like. What her voice sounded like. Who she was. And now, for the first time, I could feel her delicate hands run through my hair as she told me she loved me. I sobbed and I sobbed and I sobbed.
Intermixed in there were also tears of regret. My whole life I was taught to hide my European “side.” All I knew was that my father came from Dallas and that was all I needed to know. These pale-skinned mothers and fathers were to be forgotten, I was taught. They carried violence in their blood and avarice in their smile, I was taught. They were rubbish, I was taught. There was no need to ask questions about them or think about them, I was taught. Whenever I wrote down my race on official forms, I would only write “Native American,” as I was taught.
But then, as thousands of European ancestors swirled around me and reassured my fearful heart, I wished I had honored them sooner. I wished I hadn’t disowned them. I wished I knew how beautiful they were. I wished I could have seen through the thin wall of time that dominates our understanding of Europe. I wish I could have realized the days when Indigenous Europeans were deeply connected to the earth and to kinship. In my mind I told them I was so, so sorry for forsaking them. But, of course, they did not care. They only held me tighter and assured me they would be with me to the end.
The sweetness of this precious experience changed me forever. I have come to believe that if we do not wholly love our ancestors, then we do not truly know who they are. For instance, I get very offended when people call Native Americans “good-for-nothing drunks.” Because by saying this, people don’t take into account the centuries of attempted genocide, rape and drugging of Native American people. They don’t see the beauty of who we were before the onslaught. And now, I am offended when people call European descendants “privileged good-for-nothing pilgrims.” Because by saying this, people do not take into account the thousands of years that European peoples were raped, tortured and enslaved. They do not understand the beauty of who we were before the onslaught. They do not understand that even though we have free will and the ability to choose how we live our life, it is very hard to overcome inter-generational trauma. What happens in our formative years and what our parents teach us at that time can be very hard to reverse.
They estimate that 8-9 million European women were burned alive, drowned alive, dismembered alive, beaten, raped and otherwise tortured as so-called, “witches.” It is obvious to me now that these women were not witches, but were the Medicine People of Old Europe. They were the women who understood the herbal medicines, the ones who prayed with stones, the ones who passed on sacred chants, the ones who whispered to me that night in the hoghan. This all-out warfare on Indigenous European women, not only harmed them, but had a profound effect on the men who loved them. Their husbands, sons and brothers. Nothing makes a man go mad like watching the women of his family get burned alive. If the men respond to this hatred with hatred, the hatred is passed on. And who can blame them? While peace and love is the correct response to hatred, it is not the easy response by any means.
The Indigenous Cultures of Europe also sustained forced assimilation by the Roman Empire and other hegemonic forces. In fact, it was only a few decades ago that any Welsh child caught speaking Welsh in school would have a block of wood tied to their neck. The words “WN” were there-inscribed, standing for “welsh not.” This kind of public humiliation will sound very familiar to any Native Americans reading this who attended U.S. Government boarding schools.
Moreover, our indigenous European ancestors faced horrific epidemics of biblical proportions. In the 1300s, two-thirds of Indigenous Europeans were wiped from the face of the earth. The Black Death, or Bubonic Plague, ravaged entire villages with massive lymph sores that filled with puss until they burst open. Sound familiar?
The parallels between the genocide of Indigenous Europeans and Native Americans are astounding. It boggles my mind that more people don’t see how we are the same people, who have undergone the same spiritual assault. The only difference between the Red Story and the White Story is we are in different stages of the process of spiritual warfare. Native Americans are only recently becoming something they are not. They are only recently starting to succumb to the temptations of drugs, alcohol, gambling, self-destruction and the destruction of others. Just as some Native American people have been contorted and twisted by so many centuries of abuse, so too were those survivors of the European genocide. Both are completely forgivable in my eyes.
Now I see I have a double-duty. I must not only honor and revitalize my Diné culture, but also that of my European ancestors. This ancient Indigenous European culture is just as beautiful as Native American culture and was just as tragically murdered and hidden from history books.
And so, some years later, armed with this new understanding, I traveled to Europe. I scaled a beautiful mountain in Switzerland to see if I might hear hints of ceremonial songs in the wind. I stepped upon the earth guided by those grandmother and grandfather whispers. I plucked a strand of hair from my scalp and placed the offering upon the earth, still wet from morning dew. I ambled through the forests enchanted by the new sights and smells. And I did see glimmers of visions of the villages of yesteryear. And they were full of Earth People living out harmonious community. And, they had beautiful music.
As the sun went down, I fell back on the grass and looked up to the sky. At the time, I was going through a very painful separation from a person I loved. To my surprise, it felt as if the earth was pulling all the sorrow I was carrying down into her core where she could transform it into beauty. The sky was speaking to me about how I didn’t need to worry, that I would be happy again one day. The earth and the sky healed me that day from the great weight I had carried for months. It was a special reunion with the mountains of my foremothers.
My mountain experiment yielded astounding results: the Great Sacred Motherland of Europe is still alive and breathing and waiting for her children to come home! She is waiting for us to ask her for songs so that we may sing to her once again. She is waiting for us to scratch passed the surface of time, into the B.C. period when our languages were thriving and our dancing feet kissed the face of the earth. She is waiting. She is waiting for us to remember who we are. If you hold this descent, or any forgotten descent for that matter, I am asking you to join me in this prayer to remember who we are. I have a feeling this prayer will heal the whole world.
In 2009, archaeologists came across a female effigy believed to be the Goddess of the Earth buried inside of German soil. The radiocarbon dating tests came back. They indicate that this clay deity was molded by European hands 40,000 years ago. 40,000 years ago. This is the time she beckons us to. This is the world she hopes we will remember: where man and woman alike, held the soil in their hands and saw the value and sanctity of women and of the Mother Earth. This is the world that still flows through our veins, however deafened we have become to it. With prayer we can learn to hear it once again.
I compare this earth-based, Indigenous European culture to the witch-burning psychosis of the first and second millennia. I cannot help but ask myself, when and how did this egalitarian, earth-loving, woman-honoring culture, become the colonial, genocidal conquerors that washed upon American shores? Could it be that our beloved Indigenous European ancestors were raped and tortured for so many thousands of years that they forgot who they were? Could it be they lived in a pressure cooker of oppression for so long that conquer-or-be-conquered is all they knew? Yes, I believe so.
Our task is to shake the amnesia. To not be ashamed of our European-ness, but to reclaim our beautiful grandmothers, to reclaim our venerable grandfathers, to reclaim our lost languages, our lost ceremonies, our lost homelands and become one with the Great Sacred Motherland of Europe once again. The European diaspora is spread all throughout the world, searching the planet for something that lives inside. I promise you will hear it when you climb the mountains of Switzerland! Of Scotland! Of Tuscany! Of Hungary! Of Portugal! Of the Great Sacred Motherland of Europe! Just because bad things happened upon her bosom does not mean she is bad.
Our task is to honor our ancestors, even those who caved beneath the weight of systematic destruction and became conquerors themselves. Our task is to remember that we are those beautiful Earth People. The ones whose love and prayers were so strong that they could carry 25-ton blue stone monoliths for miles and miles and build the sacred place of prayer known as Stonehenge. That is who we are. When we remember this, the healing of our lineages comes full circle. When we remember this, we will no longer need to borrow spiritual practices from other cultures (although that can be very helpful when there is nothing else to hold onto.) When we remember this, we will remember that the fates of all beings are intertwined with our own. When I remembered this, I found whole-ness in my self—no longer a half-breed, but a daughter of Two Great Lineages, Two Great Rivers that ran together to make one precious child.
This is the story of how I became whole. Some days, it feels like both fire and water live within me. They dance and swirl around one another. In the morning when I wake up, each bows to the other, honoring themselves as equals, as beautiful. When I go to sleep at night they wish each other good dreams. They teach me how it could have been when Columbus first stepped upon Taino shores: a meeting of two long lost brothers, embracing each other and celebrating their unique cultures. They teach me how things can be for our children in the future.
Because that’s what matters most, doesn’t it?
Not how the story goes… but how it ends.
We each hold a pen. Now, let us co-author a story of how humanity fell in love with itself and its Mother Earth once again. Shall we?

2020.10.19 01:20 ignaposts [Thank You] ¡Que plancha lo atrasada que estoy con mis agradecimientos! (Chilean stuff #5)

Plancha, which means iron... the one used to iron clothes (so many "irons"!), in chilean also means "embarrassing": "It's embarrasing how late I am with my thank you's!"... or something like that. Oh, there was a tongue twister with "plancha", (but not the chilean one): Pancha plancha con cuatro planchas.... Why 4? It makes no sense, should be "pocas" instead.... but saying "few" for ironing with irons is quite a lot. Lol.

I know many here have sent me more than the mentioned cards below, but I'm keeping it simple and going with the ones that come out first for this round. For the glitterbomb ones, that'll be my last update, thus marking my definitive return to the sub (and also definitive chaos on my room again, oh dear... I'm seeing the pandora box eeying me evily)
So, let me try pouring with my weak words my feeble attempts at muttering my gratitude to so many wonderful people.

u/feellikebeingajerk Oh, man.... it seems the overseas Easter chick test failed due to... unexpected world events, lol. But it did bring me such a smile when I opened it.... many many months later (5 maybe?). I adore Samson. Yeah, that's how I named my chick, since he looks kinda hairy. Have it in my desk, supervising my artsy mess. I used the orange pipe cleaners to tie the two pompoms and even the beak! I wanted to test myself how little glue I could use in this project, which I find really fun challenging myself.... specially now. Oh, come on, look at Samson, he's so adorbs. <3 Thank you so much.
u/bellanova2018 I really hope your trip to India was awesome. I'd love going there some day! Al the regional dishes stamps are so fascinating, (and pretty). Thank you so much for also introducing me to such cool food. Now I really, really wanna try Palak Paneer. What does it have? My sis told me it doesn't look apetizing at all, but knowing that it has spinach, now it is in my top 10 ones I wanna try if I ever travel there. Is food too spicy? Thank you so much for such an awesome mail. I also LOVE your handwriting. I wanna try your cool “A”s, haha.
u/KrebsLovesFiesh I opened your card during quarantine and it brightened up my day so much. It had a super cute postcard of a watch shop. It reminded me of this store I liked seing with my mom and sisters in Austria everytime we turned a corner. It had these colorful handmade clocks with such fun and cool shapes. There was one of a kitchenaid . Wow, who would've thought that was this year. Seems like it was sooo long ago. I really hope you've been doing fine.oh, I also really loved the envelope with the year of the rat stamps marks. That is so freakin cool. They're so adorable, it makes you wanna collect them.
u/LifeOfLari Thank you so much for the Lake Kawaguchi postcard. Mt Fuji is so pretty. It reminds me of the Villarrica Volcano. I love watching it throwing smoke with the lake at its feet. I loved your story of asking help to a grandma while lost. It is so cute! Like being a kid back again. I usually get lost everywhere, specially in foreign counties when I'm supposed to be in a group. Lol, I sound so hatable, haha. But when I'm stolling alone, I like to get lost in purpose. I usually end up finding pleasant surprises. Who knows, maybe you find the old couple again one day, I'll keep my fingers crossed ;)
u/TigerLady13 Oh Aunt Bertha. I swear this card got lost after so many drinks, it took ages to arrive!. Even the stamps were backwards, adding more awesomeness to these cards sent by my fave auntie. Shhhh, don't tell that to anyone. My love is the best cash, so sending you lots of it! I also love the fact that you greeted me first in spanish and that was too scholarly for vacations, so it was crossed out and replaced by a proper holiday like “aloha”, lol.
u/oneinamelon I had a big facepalm with this yahoo knock knock joke. Many don't work in Spanish, so we have other types here, so it always feel new and refreshing, lol. And yes, I prefer google too. Is Yahoo still alive? I wonder if people still use it. I think after google I'd rather use DuckDuckGo before yahoo or even Bing. Bleuuughhh, don't like Bing at all. It is so messy and I never get the results I want. Thumbs down. And for some reasone I keep uninstalling it and from time to time it gets re-installed with the updates. Lol, I went on a tangent? Thanks so much for the laugh. I wanna show it to my sisters :)
u/CeceMarie I can't describe how much I love this card. It almost feels prophetic, how our everyday interactions get more and more transfered to the online world. Wow, 15 years ago feels like yesterday, but so many differences were there!s The 2000's feels so close but are actually quite back. What made me tell the card was old was the fax number in the back of the card instead of an email. I wonder if people still uses fax machines. I always felt them wierd, noisy and obsolete... and expenisve. I guess Chile was really poor back in the 90's. I remember my parents waited for more than a year to get a phone number, and they lived in a flat behind my grandparents, so they extended a wire up to their apartment, but it was the same number. I remember in elementary school a friend had a color printer in her house and that was so freakin cool. We never had a fax. What people used to do was to go to someone's house to send them or special shops. And for very imporant or specific things. I remember when my cousin was born the 94 in europe, and my aunt send us a fax. Still faxes felt alien for me. Maybe because I never used them for work. In the 2000's I watched many things on cartoons that seemed normal in households but not here. Like putting people on hold and changing to another call, or group calls, or seeing the ID number. I wonder if it was ever possible or a paid aditional service. Wow, how times change. During quarantine we got rid of our house number. It was painful for my parents, but at the end most of them were spam calls and no one wanted to answer. Oh gosh, I'm writing a novel here, I should give you a proper slow reply.
u/ninajyang I love the pictures you've taken in your trips. This one is an amazing night skyline in Shangai that looks so pretty! I'd love to visit there one day. When I got your postcard I couldn't stop and think, wow, cities next to clear waters look so dreamy! It makes me wonder, what were the sounds there, how are the people like, what are the smells that can be sensed, the temperature. I love remembering the smells of trips, and when I get to sense them again, they transport me to the good memories I've had around the world. I tasted Glühwein for the first time when I met u/5-finger-death-punch. And that's one of the aromas that stuck for that memory, with the feeling of a cold nose sensing the heat of the hot spiced wine. Oh man, I had planned traveling to Aus next month for quite a while and then tour Asia. Who knows if that'll be possible. But who knows if the future holds unexpected good surprises instead? We'll see. Thank you so much for your postcard!
u/5-finger-death-punch My dear friend! I've remembered you so much! For a long time I've felt like writing you a long letter, but then I start overthinking stuff and that oh, this is a carding sub, and that could be overwhelming and yada yada yada. I hope you're doing well as well as your studies. And also that you've kept your same address, I sent you some stuff your way. Did I ever send you the picture of the unrememberable-name-for-me sweet we ate? We couldn't ice skate at the end with my sisters that weekend, but we got to enjoy nice live music at the Prater while flakes started to fall. My historian sister remembers you the most, and in a very fond way. We had so much fun that day. Getting the Albertina postcard with the … Feldhase... Der Haseichverstehenicht? Brought me so many good memories. I wish I could've visited more museums! My fam hates me, I take too much time inside. I love how you also put a bunny in the back. I think I've watched this postcard for 10 minutes straight. Lol, I could make a museum locked-down experience with some of the postcards that I've got, and have no one complain.haha. Thank you so much. Ohhhh, I just realized! This one is stamped in germany with a flockenblume. Wow, I think I'm starting to understand what felt so overwhelming before! Is it like.... sheeps flower? Lol.
u/underscoreophelia Thank you so much for such a pretty and filled with energy and positivity card. I loved it so much! I love your handwriting and notes, and fun letter, it brings me so many good memories and also a Geronimo Stilton vibe, and I LOVE it. I also love how you write Chile... I wanna try writing it too. This was such a nice card to get, filled with so much love and praise. I know I've been away for a while, and that I wasn't very filled with warmth and positivity the last months, but now I feel filled with new energy again, and determined to be the best version of myself... and probably still a bit cray cray. I guess I still love being different and doing wierd random stuff. I really hope you've been doing okay. And hydrated? Lol, in my fam we became addicted to water this quarantine. Our first day out to a restaurant we all asked plain water and I refilled it 3 times and also drank my sis'. I've drank so much water that fizzy drinks taste wierd now and feel like a chore (for example, being in the countryside and no one brought drinkable water ) Thank you so much, and rest assured, I'm dead set on archieving real longlasting happiness now. And I know that can be archived by searching what is really really true and real, getting rid of what's fake and selfish in me and by doing my best for others by walking the extra mile. I have a hunch that I'm capable of loving so much more. There is so much good I could do! The future looks so bright now, whatever happens.
u/yellowseptember (x3) Oh my dear yellowseptember, I felt so spoiled getting your surprise selection of poems, haiku and poo-etry. You wrote them? Wow, I wanna try writing pooetry too. It'll always be a mystery to me how on earth you print your cards. I sometimes forget how much fun it is to write them. The other day I helped my cousin write a rant in verse about quarantine. In Spanish, of course.... I haven't tried in English, except that impromtu haiku battle I once had in the comment section of this sub once. I seriously love your cards, they made me snort, and the postcards are pretty and fun! It is also my first woman in science postcard I recieve, and I love it! I wanted to be a scientist when little, but robotics and mechanics was only for boys back then and that was maddening. I also was the only girl in advanced physics.
u/PotterSarahRN Ohhhh it's a scented valentine's dinasour! That was so unexpected and cool! I can't believe it held its strawberry smell all the way up here and still has it. I love how these cards are so cute and colorful and happy. Since which age kids start celebrating valentine's? When does the “change” happens? The one from gifting friends to actually thinking on flirting and all that. I was familiar with these celebrations because of tv, but it felt so foreign to me, but kinda cool. Though probably I'd be the kid that got the “oh, let's don't leave her out” cards and thingies, because I was such a trouble maker, lol. At least since 4th grade (it it “since” or “from”?? ahhhh someone help me!!), because I had an awesome group of friends till 3rd grade... until puberty hit them and they got so... stange, and since I was in other school, I couldn't keep up with their new interests and dramas. I think puberty hasn't reached me yet in all these decades.lol. By the way, my lil cousin says the card smells nice. I have a dilemma, lol, I freakin love tatoos and I like sticking them into paper and decorating with them, like a hardcore level sticker. But there's also my cousin's daughter that is obsessed with them and she'll get so happy if I paste her a couple. It's funny to see that all these little kids are full of these sticky tatoos, like in summer, since they don't have to take them off for online classes. Makes me feel like I'm already in summer. Ahh, sticky tatoos bring me so many good memories. We got them out of chip bags, mostly, and Chuck n' Cheese prizes and birthday's parties. Because we always got few tickets, so we could only redeem the cheapest things, which were usually tatoos., lol
u/germymany I had to read the “wheelie like you” twice to understand the pun, lol. The croc is so cute! Thank you so much for one of my firsts valentine's cards. It was so fascinating to think kids give each others these type of cards. That's so cute! I actually never celebrated Valentine's at school because that date falls into Summer Vacations, and just between february, when the “recambio de veraneantes” happens, that is, when almost everyone that was on their 2 week vacation, return to their homes and the others that took the other half of the month start theirs. It's chaos, and, since Chile is a loooong huge single panamerican highway pretty much, you can imagine the incredible traffic jams that occurs. So a huge group is stressed out travelling, not caring about it much, and in the many years I dated, I was always far away for that day... and kinda forgot about it? I also almost never had phone signal. How do you used to celebrate it?
u/fashbrownz I got your pretty aquarell card done in February.... very late in the year. Thank you so much. I hope things are doing better there. I still can't send to your country, which is pretty frustrating. We're still in our first wave down here, we managed to flatten the curve and the hospitals never collapsed because the government made the private ones open their doors to help the public system during our critical period, since we're all in this together. We're slowly going back to our normal lives, area by area, and the parameters are very well defined and everyone knows there won't be total “freedom” until a cure is found. But at teh end we're human beings and get tired of feeling uncomfortable, so we'll see. We already were having March panic buying because of the social protests, so it was implemented early on the limit quantity and in some places is still held, because some are still hard to find or the production of them was badly affected. I think I never asked my friends with 7, 9, 10 and 12 siblings how they managed that. This time has taught me to practice patience, which I don't have too much. It's interesting how every country has taken different measures, I sometimes feel like lab rats in a huge global scale experiment. I hope that this make us more humble and we learn from our mistakes and also the others' and copy and improve the best meassures and ideas that have been implemented. I'm dying to send you a reply, can't wait for the post service to open up to more countries.
u/stephanieTay Thank you so much for the xmass postcard with the advent candles. This was my first cold xmass in the northern hemisphere, and was able to smell and see the colors the picture shows, which brings me cozy memories. There was also a washi tape depicting Japanese Christmas cakes. I find it interesting how they also have their own version and traditions of that holiday, like the strawberry cakes.'They look quite yummy! Thank you so much!
u/YESmynameisYES Thank you so much for the Weasley's Wizzard Weezes postcard. Oh boy, I love those twins. I loved whenever they appeared in the books. And I love the quote you put “Oh wow, we're identical!” I couldn't help but smile. I used to be a Potter head, haha. The annoying kind that when the first movie went out I would complain about all the differences. And then I decided I'd never watch a movie again. In my child eyes they felt too dark and... dusty? Though I remember how wowed I was with the first movie trailer. The castle on the outside was cooler than what I imagined (don't get to see castles here at all), but those staircase were a trillion times better and cooler in my imagination, and I actually loved them a lot, I felt so heartbroken in that scene. When I started reading the books, I had just changed to another elementary school, and I had a freckled redheaded classmate, son of a teacher there, that was a troublemaker and had a huge family too, so it was not hard at all to imagine the caotic environment and fun interactions and hardships. The 6th book was so fun with all the Umbridge-related bullying done by the twins. I sometimes had trouble following them, because I read that book in English, and there are soooo many hard and unknown words but at some point I was so mesmerized by the book I kind of pretended I understood it and imagine whatever, lol. I read them all again last year and I was amazed at how different it felt. I could understad so much more after all these years!
u/PoisonousKey Thank you so much for the cute Winnie Pooh postcard. I feel your handlettering is getting better everytime, and it's so pretty! Have you practiced more? I'd love to see how it's evolved by the end of the year! I haven't practiced at all.... I got into a lettering class right before getting locked down and then I got somewhat discouraged after killing 2 brushpens. Well, after all these months locked, I killed many pens, specially my favorite drawing pens. From overuse and daily accidents. It's funny, when my family starts overdoing something, I get discouraged too. They got addicted to buying online, and I culdn't buy anything untill they calmed down. Or after they got obsessed with photography, I could never again take a camera in our family trips, despite how much I like taking pictures. What's the point of having 7 persons taking pictures to everything?? How it can be an archievent to come back with 3000 pictures that are a pain to sort out? Now I wanna try improving my caligraphy again! I just love how you do the “I”'s, I wanna try it now. Funny that in Spanish it's uncommon to capitalize so many “I”s, since it's not an overly used pronoun, haha. Thank you so much.
u/el_azul I LOVE the postcard from the stamp museum you sent me, and love the architecture of the buildings shown, mainly because it's so different from what I've seen in my life (I'd love to travel there some day). I wanna send you a postcard of one of our stamps' illustrators in Chile... as soon as I can send again your way. Unless we do a postcard chain with someone else that is able to send your way... that would be so cool. What you liked the most of that visit? I'd love to visit one some day... sadly stamp culture is dying in Chile.... the gov' puts their friends in charge of these departments, so they're zero interested in snailmail or philately and they're expecting it to die... as the stamp artist told me. She's the youngest by faaaaaar of the colectors that go to the official meetings and releases. Thank you so, so much for going the extra mile and sending me one, I wrote this while listening to Tam Zamani, such a nice peaceful song.... what is it about?
u/theycallmemia I ADORE your space postcard with the saturn pin, I found it such a cool format. I love its colors and everything, thank you so, so much for spoiling me. Do you like pins too? I love them, but I'm still a messy collector, haha. I wanna make something to display them, but I'm a master at procrastinating... I get distracted too fast at practically everything, ouchieeees. It's funny that since this one was not just paper, it went through the packages system and had to cross customs. They put a barcode in the envelope whenever they scan them through the packages system. I might be saying some postal aberration, but my English is too limited, lol. Btw, the doodle you did of yourself is super cute, and made me smile even more.
u/ThriftyRiver “Awww” that was the first thing I said. When I opened your card with a cat in it from Pet Partner's. And “awww” also said my lil cousin who was standing at my back. “Did she made it?” he asked. Oh, haha, other person walked behing me just now and also awwed. I didn't know about the Pet Partner's volunteering program, I think that's so cool! If something alike existed here, it'd give me the drive to fully train my dog and participate. But I'm a lazy loaf that whenever I teach him something, my family think it's cool and over stimulate him and somehow manage to confuse him and then he gets some things mixed up.He's so cute. When we go on our walks he likes running after quails and rabbits, but gets scared of cows. I'd love seeing deers, they must be so cute! Here in the south we have a little type of deer called Pudú, but they're very very shy. Thank you so much for the pancake recipe, I wanna try it out some weekend. Do you like them thick and spongy or thin as crepes? In my house we make them thin, filled with spinach or chicken in a roll and eat them for dinner topped with Bechamel, lol. Chileans don't eat pancakes for breakfast; instead, they like bread with avocado, scrambled eggs, ham, butter or mermelade... or dulce de leche. And coffee. We have tried making pancakes as shown on tv (except that we add dulce de leche... yummy), but we make them small and can't eat more that 2... how could people eat one bigger that the plate?! That's insane! Were you able to? When we've traveled to the US, we've all shared plates with my sisters, and still can't eat them whole. They once sold us a tower of fries at Burger King (actually it was part of the meal thingie), filling a whole tray. It was insane! We barely were able to eat 1/4th of them between 7.
u/MangoMeliss Thank you so much for such the adorable red ridding hood with her doggie. I love it so much. Reminds me of the years I was studying animation. I just love this style. I also loved your adventures in Holland. I'd love to visit there some day! Oh gosh, I just realized, after holding your postcard many times (because I adore it) that those phat kitty stickers are actually these memo paper things! Oh wow, hahaha, I'm laughing so much right now. I'll definetly use a couple to decorate cute things. Thank you so much for the Hello Kitty Valentine's, it makes me think in the little kids at school giving out these. I think that's cute. But do kids only write the to and from? Or they add little messages too? I've never celebrated it, it's fascinating knowing about these things. Also, thank you so much for the adorable washi samps. I'm copying your folding technique for the last bit, they look pretty and it's so practical! Oh, and last but not least (whatever that means, shoot, I need to study more English) I'm in love with the envelope and the Stitch you drew.
u/lonelytwatwaffle My dear waffle, I don't know why your cards took so long to arrive, but I've loved each one of them. I actually felt very touched to get a Christmas card with Mary in it and wishes to have a blessed Christmas. I wasn't expecting it! And it was a lovely holiday, my first ever cold one, away and relaxed, with my family and newborn nephew and not worrying about gifts, meetings, or things that just distract us of what is really important. We also, unexpectedly, met a huge group of spaniards living there and we sang carols in many languages and they stayed till very late and they were so noisy! It was sooo fun. Funny that since my sister came back from her exchange in Spain, she made us listen to villancicos sevillanos all year round, so we knew quite a lot, haha. By the way, I love your jigsaw puzzle ornament, I'll hang it this year. And I also loved the star's mischievous face, it's so adorable. Thank you so much.
u/suzilla10 (x2) Thank you so much for the Fernsehturm postcard. Many years ago I only got to see it from below, I was visiting with a huge group and there was a big parade and the city was chaotic, so the leaders decided to just walk around... a lot! I regret not buying postcards there, they were all so amazing I couldn't decide! So many types and just oh wow. Back then I would send them to myself. So I just spent all my money in cool magnets and yummy food. And still was so hard to pick! Haha. When I opened your surprise adventskalender-karte, all the amazing memories I had in Österreigh came back and brought me such a warm lasting feeling. I don't wanna ever forget those holidays. (Or the laughs I had at the sub the previous days of me searching for stamps like a madwoman while Santiago was getting destroyed by the protests, trying to get before the Germans bought everything). Last month I met the artist who designs the stamps, and she made such a cute one last year, that I obviously never knew its existance. (Well, also my post office, after the germans episodes never got stamps ever again, and she doesn't care at all). I also got to know how caotic is the system and how people who snail mail or collect stamps are seen as pieces of a museum that will eventually die into oblivion if it wasn't for the international groups that put money so stamps get printed. Oh man, I love your card and details so much. The stickers remind me of our many trips to Thalia with my sisters (we don't have anything as awesome as that here) and I would just walk around and dream I was buying everything. I wanna go back to Europe some dayyyy! Thank you so much, I love everything, I get so happy opening your envelope from time to time. I will definetly set up the advent calendar this year. I adored that when I visited in December, all these advent little things and presents, they were so cute and adorable, I NEED to do something like that this year, it brings me memories of my childhood. I used to love Advent. Ohhhh... holidays are looking more and more american here each year, and I just loved the european one so much better... it felt more familiar and authentic. Dude, we're getting malls installing snow machines to make it snow... in summer. Because now that's what xmass is about? Poor overdressed workers. This summer is going to be particularly hot and dry.
u/bananacreampiee Yay! I got your graduation card! Thank you so much! Funny how I would be graduated by now, but the internships were postponed so I technically finished college but need to do that to graduate-graduate... well, I'm not too worried about that, whatever has to happen will happen, I'm glad the worst part is over and the messy thesis is done. Still I can't believe I finally finished my studies... it's been a long and really hard journey! Lol, in my first sememster I visited Italy and met a priest while I was with my hopes impressively down on actually finishing something, so we made an exchange: he was going to pray for me, and if -by miracle at this point in life- I finished, I'd visit him and participate in his volunteering program. And he delivered it seems. For the first time ever I didn't fail any semester, which used to be impossible with my MH. I can't wait to contact him again, but I only remember his first name... and nothing else. And I have a picture with the family that invited us both to dinner (I met him there). I'll have to do some detective work. I still don't know how we managed to have such a deep and long conversation afterwards, he was speaking in Italian and I was in Spanish, and those years I couldn't understand a thing nor let myslef be understood, unless someone spoke Spanish or English.


Pics!
I have quite a lot of replies and exchanges that have remain unsent due to various reasons, so please, I'd be eternally greatful if you fill up my mailing list form. Specially if you've changed your address. C:

2020.10.18 19:08 13thSFGArmA3 A3] [Recruiting] [NA/EST] [Casual Milsim] [Varied Settings] - Afghanistan / Iraq The Surge


-The 13th Special Forces Group "The Immortals"-
l Discord: https://discord.gg/JGTEBSN
Looking for a unit where you can expect to be genuinely welcomed and included, rather than treated as a roster filler and ignored? Look no further!
The 13th Special Forces Group is a small community of ArmA 3 players that provide a realistic yet casual ArmA experience. We are comprised of members from varying backgrounds and units, and just seek to have a good time and play the game, without the strict emphasis on Milsim. We mostly specialize in Spec Ops missions, but depending on the mod and scenario, will sometimes perform different roles. Were looking for all kinds of players, with no experience required.
While most of our players live in the U.S. we have players from across the globe who join us.
-When are your OPs?-
Our campaign operations take place every Tuesday and Sunday, usually starting at 7 PM EST and running for about 2 hours, at that particular operations Zeuses discretion. We usually host an unrelated one shot mission on Friday, set in the same modlist just as a different faction. There might be an extra one off for fun, or something of the sorts, occasionally on other days. We also have an ongoing post apocalyptic RP campaign that is played every other Saturday. All events and their times will be posted in our Discord beforehand, to allow our members enough time and notice to get things in order.
-What mod/setting do you specialize in?-
Members of our unit have played them all, but we don't have one set setting. From WW2 all the way to Operation Trebuchet or beyond, no setting is off limits. We will hop from campaign setting to campaign setting, all depending on what our player base wants and votes for. All players are welcome to suggest their ideas and hopes for future missions.

-How restrictive/serious are you?-
Overall, we are very casual as a unit. We do have a chain of command, to deal with issues that arise and maintain the server, but the highest a set rank goes in an operation is Squad Lead, with Zeus's acting as platoon lead and command. Our load outs are not restrictive either, the only thing we will restrict you to is to period appropriate pool of weapons, uniforms, etc. so you will have the ability to have a lot of customization for your load outs. We don't have a white-list or restricted mods, because personal choice is important. Want to see more blood from enemies you kill? Turn on a blood mod. Want to turn on JSRS to get a more immersive soundscape? Go ahead. We only ask that you don't put on mods that will hinder the enjoyment of others or give an unfair advantage.
-Is there an attendance or training requirement?-
No, we understand real life comes first. Show up when you can.
We offer training if you need or want it, from a refresher course all the way to specialized squad tactics, weapons training, or anything else ArmA offers, but there is no required training. You don't have to do push-ups and run an obstacle course while a 14 year old makes you call him sir.
-Do you offer anything other than infantry game play?-
While we do not have dedicated slots for pilots, tankers, or others, any member who shows willingness or aptitude is free to take those slots on individual operations where we do have them.
So what are you waiting for? Come join today! Hop in the Discord and ask any questions you have!

2020.10.18 05:02 cabracrazy Help with mysterious old love letter

So I've come across some very old documents and they have sucked me into the story of the people they used to belong to. The documents tell the story of a man born in 1925 in Alabama. When he was 19, he was drafted into the US Air Force. In December of 1944 his squadron was sent to Germany. There is a letter in the documents that is written in very poor English and with a few German words and it is signed "Helena". The last line of the letter reads: "Will you receipt my dear Milton all sympathy from your baby that esepert his father." I believe "receipt" is intended to be "receive" as it is used elsewhere in the letter saying she "receipt" the photos he sent her. I have no guess what "esepert" is supposed to be. It seems to suggest that they have a son together (although she uses "him" when referencing Milton's mother elsewhere in the letter, so it could be a girl) SO my question to you good people is this: Any ideas on how I might find this Helena and if she had a child born around 1945? Based on his squadron's movements, she could have lived in/near Bruhl near Aachen, Marburg, Weimar, or Wiesbaden Germany. The child would have been born around 1945 (the letter is dated November 1945) Do any of you have a Helena in your family tree who mothered a child with an American Airman? This Milton never married, never had a family, and I have no way to know if he kept in contact with this woman or had contact with this child BUT I came across some of his things and this was the only letter among his things that were left behind. This letter in particular seems to have been kept in good condition considering it is 75 years old. There is also a picture with no writing on that may or may not be this Helena. I have no way to tell. You can view the photo here. Does she look familiar to anyone? The full letter can be viewed here.
SUPER long shot, but I have to try. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

2020.10.15 00:01 Older_and_Wiser_Now What do Joe Biden, Barack Obama, and Edward Snowden have to do with George Orwell?

Originally published on caucus99percent.com; that version contains embedded graphics and videos
 
Americans face a grave threat today that has the potential to turn the United States into a hellish dystopia, similar to the one in George Orwell's novel, “Nineteen Eighty-Four.” Our grand experiment in democracy is under attack by those who seek to pervert it and enslave “we the people”. In some ways, we have arrived at this moment through certain accidents of history; however, the fact remains that we would not be facing this threat today if our leaders, including Barack Obama, had been faithful to the oaths they swear in front of all the world when they take office.

Most of us have watched politicians put their hands on a Bible and solemnly swear that they will “defend and protect the Constitution”; but what do those words actually mean? As children we are taught that all laws must meet the requirements specified in the Constitution; if they don't, they are deemed to be "unconstitutional", and will be struck down by the Judiciary. However, we are not taught that such laws CAN be passed by Congress, and IF they are passed they will be enforced as the law of the land until such time as they are challenged in court and struck down. I submit to you that "The Patriot Act," which was passed after the September 11 attacks, and signed by George W. Bush on October 26, 2001, is just such a law; it violates an especially precious part of the Constitution known as the Bill of Rights, put there by the founders as a safeguard to protect "we the people" from tyranny. In particular, it violates the Fourth Amendment:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
 
Our government has been routinely spying upon innocent Americans without probably cause because an unconstitutional law, the Patriot Act, was passed by Congress in 2001 and extended by that body ever since. The situation is nothing short of Orwellian. Politicians on both sides of the aisle share guilt in this matter. Bush originally signed the bill into law; however, Barack Obama signed legislation called the USA Freedom Act to renew and extend its powers. And 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden actually brags that he WROTE legislation in 1994 upon which the Patriot Act was modeled.
 
Link to video of Joe Biden bragging about his contributions to the Patriot Act
 

Why Should I Care About the Fourth Amendment?

The founding fathers had much experience living in a world where British agents had the power to enter their home at any time with no notice and without any reason. Not only were such "visits" annoying as heck, the agents were basically looking to find some kind of excuse to levy a tax or charge them with a crime
During the Colonial era, the King of England looked at the American colonies as simply a financial investment. Britain passed numerous revenue collection bills aimed at generating as much money from the colonists as possible. Obviously, the colonists resented this act by the King and began smuggling operations in order to circumvent the custom taxes imposed by the British Crown.
In response, King George began the use of the conveniently worded “writs of assistance.” These were legal search warrants that were extremely broad and general in scope. British agents could obtain a writ of assistance to search any property they believed might contain contraband goods. They could actually enter someone’s property or home with no notice and without any reason. Agents could interrogate anyone about their use of customed goods and force cooperation of any person. These types of searches and seizures became an egregious affront to the people of the colonies.
TODAY, the NSA has (unlawful) access to every single email that you have ever written or received. If you ever organize to protest any law, or change any aspect of government, or even attend such a gathering, the government knows about it. The potential for abuse of this information is astounding.
In addition, we live in an age when behemoths like Google, Facebook, and Amazon, are amassing tremendous amounts of personal information about each and every soul who uses their services; these companies were harmless infants when the Patriot Act first became law. Silicon Valley is now working on technology to perform facial recognition; innocents think it's great to identify the name of that person in their photo who they cannot remember; will it be great when that same technology is used to provide evidence of our whereabouts because we just happened to be included in some stranger's snapshot?
Silicon Valley is known for preferring Democratic candidates over Republican ones. Google's Eric Schmidt played a key role on Hillary Clinton's 2020 campaign. Lucrative government contracts are awarded to hi-tech companies ... what happens to "we the people" when NSA data is merged with other data from these companies to create a master spy database about all American citizens?
What might Orwell have to say about a government spying on it's citizens?
In the year 1984, civilisation has been damaged by war, civil conflict, and revolution. Airstrip One (formerly known as Great Britain) is a province of Oceania, one of the three totalitarian super-states that rule the world. It is ruled by the "Party" under the ideology of "Ingsoc" (a Newspeak shortening of "English Socialism") and the mysterious leader Big Brother, who has an intense cult of personality. The Party brutally purges out anyone who does not fully conform to their regime using the Thought Police and constant surveillance through Telescreens (two-way televisions), cameras, and hidden microphones. Those who fall out of favour with the Party become "unpersons", disappearing with all evidence of their existence destroyed.
“Nineteen Eighty-Four” was supposed to be a work of fiction, not a recipe to be followed by American politicians on both sides of the aisle. The book is horrifying.

How Did We Get Into This Mess?

In her book, "The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism," Naomi Klein puts forth the idea that citizens become distracted during national emergencies, which makes it easier to exploit them via policies that would otherwise be rejected by the general population.
“in moments of crisis, people are willing to hand over a great deal of power to anyone who claims to have a magic cure—whether the crisis is a financial meltdown or, as the Bush administration would later show, a terrorist attack.” - Naomi Klein
September 11, 2001 marks the day that two aircraft crashed into New York City's Twin Towers, causing them to collapse and kill thousands. The Patriot Act was signed into law the next month, as part of Bush's newly launched "war on terror".
In general, the act included three main provisions:
  • expanded abilities of law enforcement to surveil, including by tapping domestic and international phones;
  • eased interagency communication to allow federal agencies to more effectively use all available resources in counterterrorism efforts; and
  • increased penalties for terrorism crimes and an expanded list of activities which would qualify someone to be charged with terrorism.
Guess what else happened DAYS after the Patriot Act was signed into law? Bill Binney retired from the US National Security Agency (NSA) after more than 30 years of service, and holding the title of technical director for the World Geopolitical and Military Analysis Reporting Group. Why did he retire? In his words:
Well, I couldn't be an accessory to the violation of the constitutional rights of everybody in the country. I couldn't be an accessory to that, or an accessory to other crimes being committed, like exposing all this data to the FBI. It was acquired without a warrant, you know. And this is the kind of data that they would use to arrest people, which they did. So I couldn't be a party to that. That's just a total violation of our justice process.
Binney's story is fascinating. The NSA had been seeking out terrorists prior to 9/11. Binney had developed a project called ThinThread to monitor communications in a way that focused on meta-data, and also scrupulously omitted data involving normal US citizens. The solution was up and running in November 2000, and ready to fully deploy in January 2001. He needed about $10 million to deploy. Unfortunately, the director of the NSA, Michael Hayden, made a successful appeal at that time to Congress for $4 billion (with a "b") in order to develop a different project called Trailblazer. ThinThread was actually operational and passing tests with flying colors, however the NSA cancelled it because they wanted to keep the $4 billion from Congress. ThinThread made Trailblazer look like a waste of money (which it was). Binney maintains that ThinThread would have detected and prevented the 9/11 attacks, and is furious that it was cancelled.
But there is more ... on the day of the attacks, Binney tried to enter the NSA building, but could not because the building had been closed to everyone. The next day, he was only able to enter by posing as a janitor. He overheard a conversation.
They were in there talking about trying to get things going. But the whole idea at that point changed now, because from Vice President Cheney's 10th anniversary of his 9/11 interview, he said that they, at that time, that Hayden and [CIA Director George] Tenet were talking about what could NSA do further than what they're already doing, and Hayden said he couldn't do it under the current restrictions of the law, so they had to have some exemptions. They took the proposal to expand that, do away with the protections, no encryption of any data about U.S. citizens and collect everything, all U.S. citizens' data as well.
They took that proposal to Vice President Cheney, and he took it to Bush, and everybody all agreed to it. To do that in secret with only -- they didn't even inform the FISA Court. They only informed four people, the chairman and the senior ranking member of both the House and Senate Intelligence Committees. Those were the only four who knew about it until, I think, 2004. ...
Let me share one last bit from the Frontline inverview
... Is there optimism that Obama is coming in, that maybe all of this is going to go away? And what is the rude awakening?
Well, we had hoped that, of course, that he would have done something, because he's a constitutional lawyer, that he would have started to change this and be open about it and make these corrections in the path that NSA was taking.
But instead he went the other way, and he was starting to indict people, like he tried to indict us. And the first turn of it was the report in July that came out from those IG reports under his administration. He was in in 2009; this was July 2009. And they said, well, all they need is more oversight and more monitoring of the programs to make sure they don't violate anybody's rights. Well, they were already doing it [violating people's rights] simply by collecting the data, and he knew that as a constitutional lawyer.
All that said to us was that all this stuff that he was saying before election was simply false. I mean, he was just feeding people a line to get them to vote for him, that's all, because he turned around and did exactly the opposite.
 

What Else Happened During Obama's Presidency? The Tale of Edward Snowden

Edward Snowden chose to follow in the footsteps of Bill Binney in 2013 when he became a whistleblower himself. He revealed that the government was spying on all of us via the NSA. From Glenn Greenwald's original reporting:
Snowden will go down in history as one of America's most consequential whistleblowers, alongside Daniel Ellsberg and Bradley Manning. He is responsible for handing over material from one of the world's most secretive organisations – the NSA.
In a note accompanying the first set of documents he provided, he wrote: "I understand that I will be made to suffer for my actions," but "I will be satisfied if the federation of secret law, unequal pardon and irresistible executive powers that rule the world that I love are revealed even for an instant."
snip
Having watched the Obama administration prosecute whistleblowers at a historically unprecedented rate, he fully expects the US government to attempt to use all its weight to punish him. "I am not afraid," he said calmly, "because this is the choice I've made."
snip
He left the CIA in 2009 in order to take his first job working for a private contractor that assigned him to a functioning NSA facility, stationed on a military base in Japan. It was then, he said, that he "watched as Obama advanced the very policies that I thought would be reined in", and as a result, "I got hardened."
The primary lesson from this experience was that "you can't wait around for someone else to act. I had been looking for leaders, but I realised that leadership is about being the first to act."
As one of his final acts, Obama refused to give Snowden a pardon before he left office.
“I can't pardon somebody who hasn't gone before a court and presented themselves, so that's not something that I would comment on at this point,” Obama said in an interview published Friday with German magazine Der Spiegel and public broadcaster ARD.
When Gerald Ford issued a pardon for Richard Nixon over the crimes of Watergate, had Nixon presented himself before a court? No. Indeed, Obama COULD have similarly pardoned Snowden; it is a odd that a constitutional lawyer would be confused on this point. Obama was merely playing politics, saying words to confuse the public.
 

Final Thoughts

There have been some recent developments on the part of the NSA and in the courts. Per the NYT in early 2019,
WASHINGTON — The National Security Agency has quietly shut down a system that analyzes logs of Americans’ domestic calls and texts, according to a senior Republican congressional aide, halting a program that has touched off disputes about privacy and the rule of law since the Sept. 11 attacks.
The agency has not used the system in months, and the Trump administration might not ask Congress to renew its legal authority, which is set to expire at the end of the year, according to the aide, Luke Murry, the House minority leader’s national security adviser.
I am not sure that I trust this reporting, but regardless, the issue that needs to be addressed is revocation of any unconstitutional laws that empower the NSA to run such a program. Expiration dates were included on Bush's Patriot Act and Obama's USA Freedom Act, however, an effort to extend these powers once again is currently in Congress: H.R.6172 - USA FREEDOM Reauthorization Act of 2020. The NYT reporter Charlie Savage was obviously misinformed when he wrote
"In a raw assertion of executive power, President George W. Bush’s administration started the program as part of its intense pursuit for Qaeda conspirators in the weeks after the 2001 terrorist attacks, and a court later secretly blessed it."
WTF? How could Savage get this bit so very wrong? Congress GAVE Bush the power to start such a program when they passed the Patriot Act. Joe Biden was a co-sponsor in the Senate. Bernie Sanders voted NAY in the House.
And think of poor Edward Snowden. Imagine living in exile for exposing a program that the government has discontinued? That makes no sense at all. Snowden is a hero for actually attempting to defend and protect the Constitution, unlike Joe Biden and Barack Obama.
More recently, The NSA phone-spying program exposed by Edward Snowden didn't stop a single terrorist attack, federal judge finds
The National Security Administration's sweeping program to snoop on Americans' phone records was illegal and possibly unconstitutional — and there's no evidence it led to the arrests of any terrorism suspects — a federal appeals court ruled Wednesday.
snip
In other words, there is zero evidence the NSA's phone-records program stopped a terrorist attack, contradicting the public statements of US intelligence officials following Snowden's revelation, Judge Marsha Berzon said in the ruling.
snip
Berzon's ruling — which repeatedly mentioned Snowden's role in exposing the NSA practice — emphasized that the NSA broke the law in its surveillance of millions of Americans.  
Politicians who advocate for unconstitutional laws are apparently not subject to any kind of criminal penalties whatsoever. Think about that for a moment. Passing a law that violates the Constitution, and/or signing such a bill into law as a sitting president ... shouldn't that be considered one of the gravest sins in our country?
With a hand on a Bible, a President swears that they will “defend and protect the Constitution”. Bush made that oath. So did Obama. And Biden may very well take that oath very soon. Where has been their defense of the Fourth Amendment?
To KNOWINGLY pass or sign an UNCONSTITUTIONAL law that infringes on the rights of "we the people" ... isn't that akin to treason itself?
Our forefathers shed their blood for this country in order to free us from an oppressive and unjust king. Thomas Jefferson wrote
“Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government”.
I submit to you that as a country we are walking down a dangerous road that will lead to misery for the masses, and deserved violence and bloodshed against usurpers who rule using laws that violate our precious Constitution.
I refuse to vote for a man who BRAGS that he wrote the Patriot Act. As Bill Binney said about it, "That's just a total violation of our justice process." #NeverBiden

2020.10.14 11:43 SSF415 I watched "The Howling IV" (1988)

Every day in October for 30 days I'm watching a different scary movie, this year exploring the theme of horror stories set in small towns.
Novelist Gary Brandner didn’t like the 1981 movie adaptation of his book “The Howling,” but the fourth time is some kind of charm, as 1988’s “Howling IV” more faithfully adapts Brandner’s novel...sort of.
See if you can follow this: In “The Howling” (book version), the lead is a woman recovering from the trauma of sexual assault who moves out to the sticks for some peace and solitude and yoga, only to find that, whoops, this little rural town is 100 percent werewolves, which makes for little peace but may still leave the door open for yoga.
“Howling IV” is...kind of the same story? They keep the werewolf town at least, and the plot is kind of the same, but there are still some deviations that I just don’t understand. For example, in the original ending our heroine is rescued by an out-of-town friend packing some silver bullets, but in “Howling IV” she blows up a church instead.
See, every werewolf in town was in the church. Because the bells rang, and werewolves have a natural instinct to run towards church bells. You probably think I’m taking the piss or something but no, this is really how it happened. The werewolves in that scene are very clearly adorable German shepherds BTW, so maybe it makes sense that they’d come when they’re called; they’re obviously all very good boys.
Romy Windsor (later of “Face Off” and “Camp Nowhere”) is our lead, here recovering not from rape but instead from meeting a ghost nun in an elevator--I don’t know either, let’s move on.
Latter-day “Days of Our Lives” star Michael Weiss is her two-timing werewolf husband. Australian ballet dancer cum model Antony Hamilton is on standby as an alternate love interest who mostly vanishes from the movie, thus depriving me of the opportunity to further document his attempts at an American accent like some kind of bizarre encroaching Henry Higgins.
Parisian actress Lamya Daniel is Mike’s competing werewolf love interest--you know this has the makings of a truly great reality dating show, like, do you stick with your fiance and win $100K, or take a chance and date the werewolf for $200K?
Technically the movie is a mystery story, in that Romy figures out pretty fast that there’s something wrong with the town but everybody gaslights the shit out of her about it to preserve suspense.
But of course, we the audience already know what’s up, and the other details just aren’t that interesting. Of course, it’s not a total loss, as this is the movie where a man transforms into a werewolf by first melting. No, really, I saw it with my own eyes.
The film blog B&S Movies reports a weird little conspiracy around this production: Supposedly a man named Freddie Rowe wrote the script, but director John Hough never met him and could never get him on the phone.
Hough believes that there is no Freddie Rowe and that this is actually just a pen name of co-writer Colin Turner, who was originally set to direct but got bumped off out of the job at the last minute. Freddie Rowe only has one other IMDB credit, as writer on the werewolf murder mystery sequel “Howling V.” The director of that picture: Colin Turner. Hmmm…
Too bad “Howling IV” isn’t half as intriguing as that. Believe it or not there were four more “Howling” movies after this one, and movie site That Hashtag Show reports that a remake of “The Howling” is coming to Netflix. No word yet on which of Colin Turner’s many identities will be writing it.
Tomorrow, we’ll look at another movie that was essentially made twice, this time with even less success.

2020.10.12 19:26 omnificunderachiever More challenging words from Deadwood (S1E01 - S1E04)

A fortnight ago I posted some of the more challenging words and usages I perceived in my viewing of Deadwood. Based on the affirmative remarks and counsel I received from you cocksuckers I surmised a more systematic catalog, complete with episode and attribution, to be worthy of my time and application.
Below is the result of my examination of the initial quartet of episodes from season 1. If you find it useful I will endeavor to post periodically as progress dictates.
Should you care to share your own contributions and convictions, they are welcome here, misguided though they may be.

2020.10.09 14:27 premature_eulogy The lesser-known Estonia mystery: Finnish police announce 1987 cruise ship murder & attempted murder has been solved

In 1987, a West German national was murdered and another seriously injured in an attack on board Viking Sally, a cruise ship from Stockholm, Sweden to Turku, Finland. This was not the first disaster on the ship (another murder in 1986 was solved) and it would not be the last, as Viking Sally was later sold to Estline and renamed M/S Estonia, sinking in the deadliest maritime disaster in European waters.
A quick overview of the 1987 murder case can be found on Wikipedia. Many aspects of it are like straight out of a detective novel: a murder happens in the middle of the sea in an enclosed space, with the perpetrator still onboard as the investigators go around interviewing people. A bag of clothes is discovered on a nearby island, and a shoe is used to track down the city where the suspect lives.
About a month ago, the Finnish police announced that they have solved this 33-year-old cold case (source is the Finnish Broadcasting Company; available in Finnish and in Swedish). The case was passed over to prosecutors, who will now determine whether the available evidence fulfills the criteria of a first-degree murder charge. If it doesn't, and is only enough for a second-degree murder charge, the case will not be moved to prosecution because the statute of limitations has expired (20 years for second-degree murder). First-degree murder has no statute of limitations.
Now, there was another famous, old, unsolved mystery case in the Nordic countries that was purportedly solved this year, the murder of Olof Palme, so I thought it'd be good to underline the key differences between these two announcements.
In the Palme case, the conclusion was essentially “we have determined the person who is most likely the suspect, and that person is dead”.
In the Viking Sally case, however, the conclusion is that they know who did it, the person is alive and they can prove the person did it. The only unclear thing about this case, according to the police, is whether it fulfills the criteria of a first-degree murder and can still be prosecuted.
The YLE article linked previously contains a great long-form text of the events on the 28th of July 1987 for anyone interested in the events, people and the investigation process in detail. I took the liberty of translating it here, with linked pictures:

Background

The story involved three West German youths on an Interrail trip: Klaus Schelkle (20), Bettina Taxis (22) and Thomas Schmid (21). Schelkle and Schmid’s friendship went years back, having both played and enthusiastically supported football in Stuttgart. Schelkle and Taxis had met each other at a night club and had been dating for a little less than a year at the time of their Interrail trip. From the very beginning of the trip, they had their eyes set on visiting Finland: they traveled to Stockholm and spent only a single night there before boarding Viking Sally, intending to reach the city of Turku by the next morning. In Turku, they had planned on exploring the city, drinking beer and visiting Ruisrock, the second-oldest rock festival in Europe. The festival would be headlined by Peer Günt and Pretenders. From Turku, their trip was to continue towards Lapland and Norway.
Klaus Schelkle and Bettina Taxis in Stockholm the day before boarding Viking Sally.
In the 1992 book Poliisi kertoo (‘The Police tells’, essentially case stories from the police), a chapter written by criminal commissioner Eino Kivimäki is widely regarded as the most accurate and well-corroborated source on the events that transpired on the 28th of July 1987. The YLE article speculates that some of the information must have changed decisively to prompt the re-opening of the investigation in 2016. Nevertheless, the following description of events is largely based on Kivimäki’s text.
Fitting with the sense of youthful adventure an Interrail trip often involves, Schelkle and Taxis had decided to sleep outside on the ship’s deck in sleeping bags. Not wanting to bother the couple, Schmid had decided to stay indoors and keep an eye on everyone’s luggage.
Schelkle and Taxis were described as more sociable on the cruise than Schmid, who wasn’t particularly interested in the cruise ship experience in general. At one point during the evening, Schelkle and Taxis came to tell Schmid that they had met “a fun Finnish guy” who spoke excellent German. This “Finnish guy” was a businessman working in the automotive industry, while Schelkle himself was studying to become a car mechanic. Due to their common interests, they had tried to visit the car deck of the cruise line but found it to be locked. Having decided to try their luck again in the morning, the two men exchanged contact information during the night.

The attack

At approximately 1 in the morning, Schelkle and Taxis woke up the already-sleeping Schmid to retrieve their sleeping bags. The couple headed to the rear portion of the ninth deck, to the helicopter platform. The spot they chose for sleeping was shielded by a plexiglass and was dark due to a broken light fixture.
The West German youths were not the only international travellers on board. A group of international scouts headed to the Nordic LDS Jamboree (a camp for members of the church of the Latter Day Saints) had been wandering around the ship all night, reportedly to the annoyance of other passengers. At approximately 3:45, a trio of Danish scouts made their way to the helicopter deck. Initially not seeing anyone else on the deck, they eventually noticed movement in the dark and identified two persons by the air conduction vents.
Here is a crude reconstruction of the scene and location where the three Danish scouts found Schelkle and Taxis.
At first, the scouts thought the two people were incredibly drunk passengers - not an uncommon sight on Baltic cruise ships in the 1980s, and not an uncommon sight on Baltic cruise ships in 2020 either. One of the Danish people eventually decided to have a closer look at the two persons, only to find both of them covered in blood, with blood also covering large portions of the deck. Both Schelkle and Taxis were able to move but were seriously injured. The scouts were trained in first aid, but did not have adequate skills to deal with injuries of such a massive scale. They contacted the information desk of the ship who alarmed a security guard to the crime scene. The security guard has been heard as a witness in the re-opened investigation and did not want to be interviewed for the YLE article.
There have been conflicting reports over the years on the murder weapon and the condition in which Schelkle and Taxis were found: it was reported that they were found still in their sleeping bags, but this has not been confirmed. The murder weapon was confirmed as a blunt weapon, but media initially reported that the murder weapon was a fireman’s axe. Finally, it was initially reported that Taxis’ finger had been cut off, but the police or emergency responders did not report this. The confirmed fact is that they suffered blunt trauma to the head.
Schelkle and Taxis tried to communicate with the first responders, but they could not be understood. This could be because of their head trauma or simply because no German speakers were present. They were taken to the medical ward of the ship, and straight away their cranial injuries were deemed so severe that the sea emergency and rescue centre of Turku was contacted. A helicopter was sent to retrieve the couple. Taxis was reportedly delirious during the helicopter ride, constantly mistaking the emergency responders as attackers and attempting to shield herself from them. Schelkle had to be administered CPR during the ride. At 5:48 they arrived at the Turku University hospital, where Schelkle was pronounced dead. The helicopter team picked up three crime scene investigators and one technical inspector and headed back to the cruise ship.

The investigation

The investigators were unable to find any witnesses. Thomas Schmid had woken up to the sound of the helicopter during the night, but had falled back asleep. He was interviewed by the police early in the morning. The police did not tell him what had happened to his friends until he had been questioned over and over, and had grown so frustrated and worried that he refused to answer any more questions unless he was told what had happened.
A cruise ship is an atypical crime scene because the perpetrator was almost certainly still onboard. A murder had happened on this same ship the year before, and the passengers had already left the ship by the time the police were able to start their investigation. Learning from their past mistake, the police took a very thorough approach to the investigation: they decided to videotape and gather the contact information of everyone on board. While they did manage to videotape everyone, the task of collecting everyone’s personal information turned out to be so time-consuming that they eventually decided to not collect the information of elderly passengers, children, or people travelling with small children.
The initial onboard investigation determined a 26-year-old Englishman as the primary person of interest. He was found sleeping on the floor inside the ship with blood on his clothes. He claimed it was from a nosebleed. He was on his way to Finland to meet a woman he had previously met on a kibbutz in Israel. He had already been on a cruise ship from Stockholm to Helsinki, but had been denied from disembarking due to his “disheveled, drug addict-like appearance” and was returned to Stockholm. His presence on this cruise ship was his second attempt to enter Finland, which further contributed to him being considered a person of interest. During the night of the attack, he had had a wild night with a group of five Finns. Three of the five Finns had been gambling in Stockholm and lost all their money, and were given tickets back to Finland by the Stockholm social security services. This group of six - the Englishman and the five Finns - had spent the night on the ship enjoying meals at the restaurant and drinking alcohol in various places all over the cruise ship. When the cruise ship reached the harbour in Turku, the group of six were all taken directly to the police station.
The Finns were cleared of suspicion early on and were released. The Englishman was interviewed several times (the police initially had trouble finding a criminal investigator who spoke English well enough to conduct the interviews), but he maintained his innocence. He was kept in jail for two weeks during the investigation, the maximum time allowed without pressing charges. The criminal laboratory examined the blood on the Englishman’s shirt, and determined that it was his own - although it has later been noted that the technology in 1987 could not rule it with absolute certainty.
With no other evidence against the Englishman, he was released. He lived in Finland for several years after the event, but could not be reached by YLE for this article.
The investigation was exceptionally large and was allocated a great deal of resources, including the latest technology: the computer. Early on in the investigation, the police ruled out robbery and sexual assault as motives. Their best assessment of a possible motive was “an insignificant one”, committed by a mentally ill person or someone suffering from a severe personality disorder.
In 1987, the technology available to crime investigations was still relatively poor. CCTVs were relatively rare and image quality was poor. DNA testing only became a standard, systematic technique in the early 1990s. Blood sample analysis could primarily only determine blood group and whether the blood came from an animal or a human. Cruise ships did not properly collect and store passenger information. Passenger interviews remained the main source of information.
Bettina Taxis survived the attack. She was unconscious for weeks and did not regain consciousness until well after she was transferred to a West German hospital. After a year-long bureaucratic process, Finnish investigators were able to interview her, but she was unable to recall anything from the day of the attack.

Time passes

Over the next couple of years, the police were looking for several people. Two separate people, referred to as “beanie man” by media based on their description (both had worn beanie hats that stood out), were sought after by the police. One of them was reached in Western Germany and was ruled out as a suspect, but the other one was never reached. This particular “beanie man” was 30 years old, approximately 175 centimetres tall and dark-haired. His appearance, in addition to the beanie hat, was described as disheveled, and he spoke to himself in English. He had been seen carrying something canvas-y (unclear whether this refers to a canvas bag containing something, or some other object that was made of canvas).
A month after the attack, two fishermen landed on the small island of Lilla Björnholm along the cruise ship’s route. The island is uninhabited, surrounded by cliffs and covered in forest. The fishermen noticed a black trash bag on the shore and found clothes inside. Not realising a possible connection to the cruise ship murder, they left the bag on the island. Upon returning to the island in the summer of 1988, the fishermen noticed the bag still in the same place they had discovered it the previous August. This time, they took the bag with them and brought it to the police.
Here is an image of the island where the bag was found, as well as an image of the discovered clothes dressed on a mannequin.
Among the clothes was a Finnish-made Umberto Loofer shoe. The police discovered that the shoes had been sold by a shoe store in Turku, in the year 1985 or 1986. The other clothes found were beige shorts, a red sweater, and a grey working glove with the initials H.K.. The police concluded that based on the location of the trash bag as well as “certain technical investigations”, it seemed likely that the clothes had been on board Viking Sally.
The police investigated well into the 1990s. Passengers caught on the videotape were looked for all over Europe. Some people didn’t report themselves to the police because they felt they had nothing to contribute (this was said by two Swedish youths who didn’t report themselves but were found anyway), whereas some people avoided contacting the police because they considered their cruise trip “unsavoury” or embarrassing for personal, but non-criminal reasons. (The article does not give an example of such a reason.)
Eventually, the case went cold.

Recent developments

The investigation stayed cold until the year 2016. The police has not revealed what happened that prompted the re-opening of the investigation. Finally, in September, the lead investigator announced that the case has been solved. However, a legal problem presents itself: in Finland, homicides are classified as kuolemantuottamus, surma, tappo or murha depending on the premeditation and the act itself. Close enough approximations are the American classifications of involuntary manslaughter, voluntary manslaughter, second-degree murder and first-degree murder, respectively. Murha is equivalent to first-degree murder, while tappo is second-degree.
A tappo has a statute of limitations of 20 years, whereas a murha has no statute of limitations. In the 1990s, the case was considered a tappo, but in the early 2000s it was changed to a murha (i.e. a greater degree of premeditation was assumed). If currently available evidence can only support a tappo charge against the person the police have identified, he cannot be prosecuted anymore as the crime has expired in 2007. However, if there is enough evidence to support a murha charge, the police can and certainly will prosecute. The case is currently pending charge considerations to determine exactly this. However, until the charge consideration is finished, the police will not reveal the name, gender, nationality of age of the suspect. They confirm that the suspect did not know the victims beforehand, and has been interviewed several times, but has not been taken into custody. The suspect denies his/her involvement.
The prosecutor expects the charge consideration to be finished by the end of this year.
One thing we know for certain: no new crime scene evidence has been uncovered, because the cruise ship sank in 1994 in the deadliest maritime disaster in Europe.
The rest of the article concerns the life of Thomas Schmid after the attack. He was cleared of suspicion early on in the investigation (and re-cleared in the 2016 investigation), and now lives in Stuttgart with his family. He is hopeful about the result of the investigation, and hopes it brings some closure to Klaus Schelkle’s parents.
(Again, if you understand Swedish or Finnish and thought there was a poor translation or a misunderstanding in the text, please let me know!)

Personal thoughts

Man, I hope they have enough evidence to charge the person with first-degree murder. I don’t know what information they can reveal if they conclude the crime has passed the statute of limitations, but the YLE article says that criminal commissioner Kivimäki did not want to give an interview until the investigation material is published, out of respect to the current lead investigator. This would imply that the evidence, results and overall course of the investigation will be made public. To some degree, in any case. Maybe someone here knows more about this?
I’ll definitely post an update if and when this case gets an update, hopefully within the next couple of months!
And boy, was that cruise ship cursed or what? Two separate murder incidents and a deadly sinking?

2020.10.08 17:00 nstav13 Genocide, Crime, and Subterfuge in the 20th Century - Common Setting Discussions

A common trait Assassin’s Creed groups have is the constant theorizing about future settings, because historical tourism is one of the best parts of the series. This series of posts will act as a counter to my Mildly Obscure setting discussions, but rather than looking at a single point, I will be taking a broad setting that is popular and looking at several potential settings to explore within it. Today’s setting is the 20th century. References and spoilers for recent comics including Bloodstone are below.

World Wars
I want to start with the obvious setting of World War 1 and 2. Both could contain interesting lore for sure, but I don’t feel either would fit AC very well for a full title. Both wars took place all around Europe, Asia, and Africa, meaning we’d likely only experience a single theatre (Europe most likely), which has first of all been done a lot by other games like Call of Duty; and second of all the two big cities of Paris and London were shown just before the 20th century (and both games featured part of the 20th century). World War 1 is honestly inaccessible for the most part due to trench warfare. I don’t deny sneaking through the trenches to assassinate a German Templar leading the other side could be fun, but I think the best way to handle the game would be to just focus on a single city like Berlin. If we see Berlin, it’d obviously be during World War 2, and Nazi Architecture would be incredible to parkour on, but the city was almost completely destroyed by the Russians, and the brutality of both wars is on a scale that I don’t feel Ubisoft can truly represent. That’s also ignoring the bigger elephant of the holocaust, in which the Nazi party had ghettoized millions of Jews, transported them out of the country, and put them in death camps with all other undesirables including Slavs, gypsies, and gays. On the low end they killed 6 million people, and on the high end may have killed up to 17 million. Making a game in World War 2 Berlin cannot ignore this, but I honestly would fear seeing a modern open-world AC game in Germany and the lack of respect or tact for the holocaust. Like I’d half expect that we’re Kilroy, and all the concentration camps are PoI for us to clear and free the prisoners from. This setting should just be left to the expanded universe and the few rifts we already have had.

Russian Revolution
In the Russian Empire, Templars had been attempting to use the royal family for years. Notably, Rasputin was a Templar agent who stole a staff of Eden from Tsar Nicholas II which was mostly destroyed in the Tunguska Event at the hands of Nikolai Orlev and his accomplices. A single shard remained which Rasputin held onto, likely allowing him to survive several more assassination attempts until 1916 when he was finally killed by Felix Yusupov. In March of 1917 amidst the revolution calling for the Tsar to abdicate, Nikolai Orlev was searching for the staff, breaking into the Tsar’s home in Petrograd, confronting the Tsar, and leaving after breaking the staff despite a request from Vladimir Lenin to assassinate him. Nikolai eventually found Rasputin’s grave and the staff shard still on his body. Tsar Nicholas would abdicate a few days later.
Despite Lenin’s affiliations to the Assassins, Templars infiltrated his ranks and in November of 1917, he began the October Revolution with the intention of ending the provisional government and creating the Congress of Soviets for the Bolshevik Party. The armed insurrection began in Petrograd which split the assassins, and further split them as Templars executed Tsar Nicholas and his entire family save for Anastasia who was rescued by Nikolai Orlev who then fled to America. This was a major point that began the armed conflict between the Red Army of the Bolsheviks and the White Army of Supporters for the Russian Empire known as the Russian Civil War. During this, it appears the Assassins largely collapsed under the weight of the Templars that controlled both the Red and White army. In 1924, after Vladimir Lenin died of a sickness, Joseph Stalin rose to become the first Premier of the newly formed Soviet Union which during the course of the war conquered central Asia and Siberia. Personally, I’d rather see Imperial Russia like Ivan the Terrible, Peter the Great, or Catherine the Great, or Napoleon’s Invasion with a focus on Moscow(1)(7).jpg) and Petrograd (St Petersburg).

Prohibition US
Personally, this is my favored setting for an AC game in the 20th century. Women gained the right to vote in 1920 just after the prohibition of alcohol due to pressure from Feminist and Christian groups sparking the creation of Organized Crime throughout major cities and rumrunners smuggling alcohol. By 1925 New York City had over 10,000 speakeasies to illegal buy alcohol. The Creation of the mafias led to the US federal government responding with a 3000 man task force and later creation of the FBI. In this, we have the rise of notorious gangsters like Al Capone who orchestrated the St Valentine’s Day Massacre, Dutch Schultz, and Chester La Mare in Chicago, New York, and Detroit respectively. Las Vegas was just getting off its feet due to new laws relaxing the restrictions on Gambling creating new Crime bosses there. The Ohio Gang in Congress was at the heart of corruption in the Harding administration. The Pinkerton Detective Agency also continued and expanded to other countries in this time, being sent to investigate union disputes, during which Gangsters began taking control of unions for their racketeering schemes. I can’t deny that it’d be fun to be able to explore the Boroughs of New York/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_image/image/63839281/GettyImages_3089399.0.jpg), Chicago, Detroit, and Vegas at the heart of prohibition (though we’d need the rope launcher again), and maybe take contracts for the crime lords, or fight against them maybe as a detective part of the Pinkertons. It’d certainly be interesting to assassinate the most notorious crime lords in American history. It would likely take more of a 3rd person shooter vibe with Tommy Guns, Shotguns, Rifles, and pistols, but I can see cane swords and Hidden Blades being useful for combat too. I feel this game would be Syndicate-Esque with maybe Film-Noir vibes, and the occasional car chase. This setting was really popularized due to the “Jazz Age Junkies” in Unity in which a character in this setting was also in contact with Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and Stein (famous American Writers).

The Summer of Love
In 1967 over 100,000 people entered the city of San Francisco to smoke pot, do psychedelic drugs, promote free love, and music as a form of protest against the Vietnam War and consumerism. I admit the era is fantastic in terms of lore potential. In 1963 JFK was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald a Templar sleeper agent, during which JFK's driver was under the influence of a PoE which also caused the illusion of a man on the hill creating the multiple shooter conspiracy theory. The Space Race was really a contest between Assassins and Templars to get to the apple on the moon first, as Assassins largely backed US presidents (Save for a few who were tied to Templars like FDR and Truman), while the USSR was largely controlled by Templars. The CIA began experimenting massively in attempts to defeat Russia, including looking at the effects of a LSD sex house in San Francisco during the Summer of Love, and even used LSD to attempt to facilitate psychic powers including the ability to kill someone by staring at them, which was tested on Goats in the Stargate Project which attempted to “Unlock the human potential for military applications”.
At this time during the cold war, conspiracies and alien sightings were pretty common leading to sightings of bigfoot and Mothman for example, the latter of which allegedly caused Men in Black to harass locals in West Virginia. Perhaps a lore explanation of these phenomena and mass hysteria was Templar or Assassin experimentation with PoE and psychedelics which they would then make disappear with the alleged Men in Black. The US did experiment with the potential for weather changing technology and biological warfare via dropping bacteria and chemicals from high altitude, which gave way to conspiracies about chemtrails. While chemtrails as the modern conspiracy isn't true, the US experimented A LOT with honestly really fucked up things like incendiary bats which destroyed a military base in New Mexico; or in 1967 they scrapped the Acoustic Kitty Project where the US government implanted listening devices in cats and tried to train them to follow people and listen to conversations. Spoiler Alert, the cats refused to be trained. Though this could be an interesting skill in an AC game in this era. It wasn’t just animals that were experimented on, as there were unethical human experimentations done on soldiers, criminally insane, and orphaned children across the US including testing radiation effects, injecting diseases, poor health standards, drug treatments, and of course rumors with no actual reports on attempts to create child soldiers. While this is thus far an unproven conspiracy theory, FOIA requests of FBI reports do show a potential CIA Human/ Sex Trafficking ring called the Finders from the late 80s and early 90s operating throughout the US which many conspiracy theorists were quick to point similarities to conspiracies about the current Government’s and Elites’ relation to pedophile rings including one at least partially operated by Jeffrey Epstein. Pair this with other real projects including MKUltra, Artichoke, and Bluebird which attempted to brainwash - sometimes with drugs and drug addiction to morphine - people to attempt assassinations and act as sleeper cells.
This era in the 60s and 70s was the birth of Abstergo and the Animus program which Vidic began testing on subjects in 1980. In 2000 Abstergo’s creation of a Sleeper Cell ala Daniel Cross, succeeded by having him assassinate the mentor and starting the Great Purge. Sleeper cells, spies, espionage, and subterfuge are nothing new in media and video games. Even the most recent Call of Duty game has been marketed with Yuri Bezmenov’s speeches on Russian Subversion tactics in relation to a sleeper cell in America.
This is to say nothing of the countless US interventions during the Cold War and later including a coup in Argentina and Chile the latter of which the US-supported Pinochet who subsequently executed thousands of political dissidents; firebombed Laos and Cambodia, supported Papa Doc who used death squads of the Tonton Macoutes in Haiti to enforce his rule, invaded the Bay of Pigs and had several attempts at assassinating Castro, and the US’s support for terrorists and dictators in the middle east including Afghanistan and Iraq leading the rise and creation of cells like Al Qaeda and ISIS.
I know the majority of this has been looking away from the Summer of Love, but I’m using all the conspiracies and actual projects mentioned here that actually happened during the cold war as a potential basis for what can be explored in a game in San Francisco or New York in 1967. While the game idea was only popularized due to a joke from the Simpsons later posted in AC4, the lore potential is very real.

21st Century and beyond
People have been asking for a modern-day Assassin’s Creed for years now, due in part to the original plan for AC3 being modern-day only or not having to use an animus to go to the past due to the bleeding effect. This luckily never came to fruition, which is good. Assassin’s Creed is meant to be a primarily historical game, and a large part of the draw is historical tourism. That said, I do like the modern-day in the series, and think we should see a time jump forward to like 2030 and have the series slowly work towards that date so we can have successive games like Desmond had, rather than the disjointed nature Layla’s Saga has had.

2020.10.07 22:32 ConorCulture Booking Lucha Underground Season 5 - Episode 11: Gold Rush (another important note)

So...been a while.
So, I know I said last episode I don’t want to spend time rewriting old episodes. But I tried writing this but it was too confusing, I was making too many edits. I had recently read the lore of season 4, and leaned the entire season was building to season 5. But when I started this I was doing it as a fresh new start, where everything else prior was irrelevant. But I was still trying to tie up loose ends. It was all too confusing and I’m sorry, so I’ve gone back and edited every single episode to fit the narrative Season 4 set. Now I’m not asking you to read 10 episodes just to be up to date, that’s ridiculous. I’ve instead made a TL;DR for each episode, where I try and summarise each episode so you can catch the gist, but if you really want you can reread. I’m sorry for this inconvenience but I felt it necessary to continue this. With that being said...
Welcome to The Temple!
Vipress, Puma King and Dario Cueto meeting:
The show starts with the Aztec warriors in their underground bunker. This is where they met at the end of Season 4, with a vague bit of light shining through the ceiling to hit the floor. Dario Cueto sits down in a standard foldable chair, unusual to his usual padded one + fancy desk. He gets out immediately, subtly saying he is too good for that as soon as Puma King enters. He shakes his hand, and then kisses Vipress’. she raises her eyebrows after a glance and asks Dario why El Dragon Azteca Jr. isn’t here like promised. “Well he couldn’t make it, but I’m here as we’ve yet to meet.” Vipress doesn’t look too pleased. Dario offers a seat but she denies. Puma takes it instead. Dario then quickly introduces himself, finishing off with “but of course you know that.” “El Dragon Azteca Jr. is a good man, but amongst the Aztec warriors we’ve had a bit of turbulence. That’s why Dario is here, as the dog...and not the owner...” Dario takes a moment to think how he got here, but snaps out and says that EDA wants to know of their pasts and Aztec history.
Puma King simply states he’s a warrior here to do what he does, defend his people. Him alongside his other warriors of the Jaguar Tribe have always been the most athletic of the Aztec people, so a fight club is perfect for them. Puma King then gets out the chair and looks through the small crack in the ceiling of their underground bunker, up into the sky, and says he wishes to return home one day, away from war and this life. This is all he knows, but perhaps there’s more than violence and war. Dario says he understands a life of violence, and that he hopes for the best in his future. But for now, this is where he is.
Vipress then chimes in. The Reptile Tribe have always been respected. They made themselves royalty amongst the people through their natural cunning and pride. She was just a girl, thousands of years ago. Not heir to the crown of “Kobra”, far from it. Time passed however, and she grew into the woman she is. Thousands of years ago too though, she stopped growing, as if something needed to be done before she could continue. That was to become Kobra. With the society dead, the world needed that female leader. When she arrived, she saw people who were representing her tribe, the same traits and personality, but nowhere near the prowess. She wasn’t born into it, she made herself it, just like her tribe originally. Cueto admires her drive and says that she should meet Black Lotus, they’d suit each other according to him. Cueto thanks them for the time. “You’ll go far, both of you.” he says.
Mercer, Hero of Mexico and El Dragon Azteca Jr. vs. Worldwide Underground - Trios Match
In the opening recap of the show (I don’t include these in the bookings because it’s just writing down what happened recently, and I do a TL;DR at the end of every episode so I don’t feel the need to recap it twice.) we see the segment of The Lord agreeing to give Mercer an opportunity. But the conditions were made clear, Mercer had no control over who is opponents or partners would be. Then in the segment before the match after the ad break, The Lord is seen handing over a wad of cash to another person’s hand, and after a camera cut is revealed as Gringo Loco. He takes the money and walks off with his crew of 4 or 6 guys/gals. They then make their entrance all together, addressed as “Worldwide Underground”. Gringo Loco is at the helm with Diamanté and KC Navarro too, but they’re joined by a different 3, two guys in leather jackets and shorts, and one girl with a bandana, leather jacket and leather pants. Gringo Loco has his tights and a denim jacket with the American flag across the back, but instead of oozing a “cool” persona like his gang, he’s more of an odd one out as he laughs and runs his mouth, with his ginger hair, shades and bandana looking more comical than cool. That is by design however. The crazy foreigner (that’s what “Gringo Loco” means in English) then runs his mouth but is cut off by the beginning of Mercer’s themes heart pounding opening. He walks out to the stage as the angelic cries sound. He then walks down and owns The Temple, everyone in awe at his presence. His mystery partners then come out, chosen by The Order. Now, we know that Mercer is a part of the Aztec ancestors, and The Order aren’t too fond of them. So, Mercer signed a deal that probably would end in chaos but hey, doesn’t everything in Lucha Underground?
His partners are that of El Dragon Azteca Jr. and Hero of Mexico. That isn’t too bad, right? EDA brought him to The Temple after all, and they’re both Aztec ancestors. Thing is though, Salina de la Renta last week tried to drive a wedge between these two men as she directly told EDA that Hero of Mexico is better than him and he’ll do the Aztec warriors more proud - oof. They come out and seem to have a mutual sign of respect, but we don’t know if that’ll last. Mercer starts off and undresses from his robe, as Gringo Loco continues to trash talk. Mercer then power walks up and offers him his hand, which Gringo takes but then Mercer immediately pulls him in, and Gorilla Presses him into the Gringo Loco’s gang! He then looks out with a tiny grin. He signals for Hero of Mexico to come in, which he obliges to, and Tope’s himself over the top rope into the gang. They catch him to break the fall as per usual, and he slides across their hands so he lands on his feet and then runs up the steps to pump the crowd up. Him and Mercer point at each other from the distance, and then Hero retreats back. Gringo Loco then enters in and slaps Mercer. He gives him a Headbutt and runs the ropes. He tries to collide a Shoulder Block, but Mercer holds his ground. Gringo Loco then kicks him in the gut and hits the Shoulder Block proper. He wipes his mouth and goes back to taunting. He throws Mercer outside where Diamanté and KC Navarro hit double Superkicks to his head. The whole gang then hold him in place for a Suicide Dive!
Gringo Loco then mocks Hero’s taunting atop the stairs, just this time air humping. He then goes back down into the ring where Hero tries to slingshot over, but EDA says he’ll handle business. Gringo is fine with this, and slaps EDA nonetheless. EDA then hits a Handspring Enziguri to Gringo and follows with a Slingshot Leg Drop! He sends him packing outside in a double-team with Mercer, as he Dropkicks him out, Mercer catches, and hits a Michinoku Driver on the outside! KC Navarro then tries to Suplex EDA out onto Mercer, but Mercer grabs him by the legs. He only lifts him onto the apron. KC Navarro then Moonsaults off his shoulders onto Mercer! His gang catch him from falling on the floor. They then separate to surround the ring. Diamanté comes in and awaits El Dragon Azteca Jr, but he’s prepared for her as he ducks a kick and grabs her by the neck. He then jumps off the apron so her neck hits off the ropes. He rolls back in and continues on. He hits a combo of kicks followed with a chop, and then goes for the Tornado Dragon, but Diamanté catches into a Suplex! She then hits a Big Boot to the head of the bent over EDA, who follows into a sitting position, and she hits a Dropkick to him there. She connects the Rolling Cutter and pins, but Hero of Mexico breaks it up. EDA then jumps out the ring onto KC with a Tope Con Hilo over the ring post!
Hero and Diamanté then go high speed. Hero immediately hits a Frankensteiner and pins but Diamanté gets out. Diamanté then runs at him but Hero arm drags, which she counters into a float over pin which Hero gets out of and hits a Roundhouse Kick, followed with a Springboard Head Scissors into the ropes, followed with a Tiger Feint Kick. He goes for a dive then, but he’s pulled out by Gringo Loco and hit with an elbow. EDA and Gringo Loco then both elbow each other, and EDA hits a Hanging Soccer Kick using the apron. Mercer then comes in and counters a Crossbody from Diamanté into a Moonsault and Battery! He tries to cover, but Hero of Mexico comes in and says he’ll finish the job. Mercer leaves, and Hero goes to hit a 630 Senton, and he does so, but he stands up afterwards, and is then rolled up by Diamanté! 1.......2.....3!!!!! The Aztec warriors lose to The Order’s hired gun off a mistake Hero of Mexico made, a man who was deemed to be better than their leader, El Dragón Azteca Jr. EDA looks at Hero with just sheer disappointed, as we cut away.
Marty The Moth Martinez promo:
The man on top of the Lucha Underground world at the moment is Marty The Moth. He recently was gifted the Gauntlet of the Gods by The Lord and his ego starts to inflate more than the Zimbabwe economy. His advances on Salina de la Renta are deeply unsettling, with Salina expressing her concern to The Lord that Marty is a dangerous man despite how he can appear normal. Its brushed off though and now Salina’s future in The Order is looking doubtful. Marty is seen in the bathroom with a picture of Salina, crumpled up and by the looks of it…potentially stained. He admires it and starts to laugh maniacally at the thought of her being his. He then starts to talk to the camera, speaking directly to Salina. Marty is a stalker, pretty obvious, but a stalker works in different ways. The most common type of stalker is one looking for power and control over another, which is something that Marty now has an infinite supply of (in his mind) and he thinks he can have anything and everything. He wants Salina for the power and the feeling that would give him. To show off this control over his narrative he has, he mentions how he has killed all those who stepped in his way. Previously Melissa Santos was the girl of his dreams, but she was a selfish bitch who ran away. He then eliminated one less wicked person from this world. And then Pentagon Jr. tried to take away all he cared about, the Lucha Underground Championship, but he was unsuccessful. Then Marty made sure he could never step up to him again. He says that after he wins the Lucha Underground Championship once again tonight and takes back what is rightfully his, he will have everything. And if Salina doesn’t want him, well that’s too bad. She will be his no matter what on earth will stop him.
The Mack, Dante Fox and Dezmond X vs. The Black Lotus Triad - Trios Cup Semi-Final Match
To refresh each member of The Black Lotus Triad: Miho (Tam Nakano), Oyuki (Hana Kimura) and Yagyu (Arisa Hoshiki). When we return from commercial Matt Striker and Vampiro are in the middle of a recap, when they’re cut off by the audience’s attention all shifting to Black Lotus perched up high in The Temple. Vampiro makes the obligatory “she is so hot, Matt” comment, before she clicks her fingers. She hops over the guardrail and stands atop the office, and looks down at the entrance way. This is when Miho, Oyuki and Yagyu all come out. Black leather pants, black brassieres, we have the three very different women all connected by one trait and one cause. Small but fiery Miho, charismatic but vicious Oyuki, and the terrifyingly dangerous Yagyu – built on nothing but anger, bloodied opponents and broken arms. They all stand in the ring as their master looks down from atop their enemies office, before she storms off through the shadows. You need to be tough to match a scary group of people, fearless, and a bit reckless. Dante Fox, The Mack and Dezmond X all meet these criteria. They climb down the stairs as the Black Lotus Triad realise they’ve met their match. Win and they can hold the Trios gold, but they must over come this opposing triad first. Dezmond X volunteers to enter first, meanwhile Miho does too. Dezmond offers a handshake which Miho accepts, and this establishes the face vs. face dynamic. Dezmond then turns around to murmer a plan, but not before he’s Germaned by Miho!!
Miho stomps on Dezmond X and takes him to the corner. She stomps and stomps down, and then runs from one corner to the other for a Kitchen Sink! She bangs the side of her knee into his head over and over, really showing their aggression. Dezmond then slides under a stomp and hits an Arm Drag. This is when the even action begins. Miho runs for him but he tosses her into the ropes. She rebounds and slides under a leapfrog, then hits the Twilight Dream! 1……2…..Kick Out!! Dezmond rolls out and then Willie Mack comes in, but he’s immediately hit with a 1399!! She tries a Tiger Suplex, but The Mack lifts her into a Samoan Drop followed by a Standing Shooting Star Press! Commentary hype up how this would crush Tam, having a man well over twice her weight jump on her. Tam then rolls out, and this is when Oyuki confidentially sets up to the plate. She looks Mack up and down, then ducks a Clothesline which makes him run into Yagyu – who decimates him with an elbow. Oyuki then hits two consecutive big boots, and when she runs back for a third, she instead hits a picture-perfect dropkick to Dante Fox! Dezmond X and Dante Fox are both now on the outside. Oyuki calls in the others of the Black Lotus Triad to come in the ring and take on The Mack. Oyuki and Miho both Irish whip The Mack into Yagyu, WHO LIFTS HIM UP AND DUMPS HIM OUTSIDE!! Mack sentons himself into his trio mates as the crowd explode for Yagyu.
The Black Lotus Triad take in the crowd until their opposition get up and are ready for a fight. All six are in the ring and each person has another from the other trio fighting them. Dezmond X flips out of a Brainbuster and hits a Pele Kick, but then is hit with a Package Piledriver by Oyuki! Oyuki is then hit with a ARKO from Fox! He goes for a Foxcatcher to Miho, who lands out and hits a double suplex with Yagyu. Miho is then taken out with a Pounce from The Mack, and then its him and Yagyu. The crowd get off their feet at this encounter, just like they did when Yagyu came face to face with The White Rabbit. Yagyu then hammers with elbow and elbow and elbow, taking The Mack to the mat as the believers unload every ounce of applause for her. She then gets up and lets out a primal scream, WHEN SHES HIT FROM OUTTA NOWHERE WITH A FINAL FLASH FROM DEZMOND X!! He then sees Oyuki on the apron and hits the X-19! Him and Mack double team with an Alley Oop + Kotaro Krusher combo!! 1…….2……3!!!! THE FINALS ARE CONFIRMED!!! They all celebrate together as they are destined for the finals. The girls walk off in defeat to a big ovation, and each of the victors bow for their good fight. The Reptile Tribe then come out, with Vipress leading the way. She declares that this occasion is suited for one match. The finals of a tournament based on teamwork, adaption, and violence. They will fight…IN A LLLLLLLLLAAAAAADDDDDDEEEEEERRRRR MAAAAAAAATTCHHHH!!
The Gift of the Gods, Rush:
When we return from commercial break, we get a quick recap of Rush winning the Gift of the Gods Championship and some big moments from that match: Dark Magic diving off the office roof, the announce table spot, and rapid fire clips of each successful pinfall until the final one, and lastly Marty coming out. Rush walks out in a clean white suit and his famed bull mask, with the sleek title wrapped around his waist. He pulls off the mask to reveal his snarling face with a wide grin plastered across. He is handed a mic, but pulls his hand away and places it to his eye in a magnifying glass shape to look at the ceiling. He then snatches the microphone and shouts out that he is “EL........IDOLO!!!!!!” He cuts a quick promo in Spanish where he says “I have reached the top...and even though I did it in an ugly fashion...I still have been chosen by the gods to be the face of Lucha Underground!” He rises his arm to the rooftops when the camera then sees a man behind him...ITS OCTANE! Octane stands behind him on crutches with a microphone. “Hijo de Puta... (motherfucker)”. OCTANE KICKS HIM IN THE INGOBERNABLES! Octane tries to use one of the crutches to batter him more, but he can’t do it and has to regain his stance in the corner. Rush then gets up and sprints at him with a Dropkick! He does a “Con-crutch-to” where he smashes Octane in the head with one of his crutches while his head is lying on the other crutch. Rush then crouches down and holds the Gift of the Gods Championship above Octane’s prone body.
Bandido (c) vs. Marty The Moth vs. The White Rabbit vs. ??? - Lucha Underground Championship
After The White Rabbit and Marty The Moth’s non-finish last week, The Lord would make a promise to the dissatisfied believers - next week they will both face off against Bandido in a Lucha Underground Championship match, in a Four-way. The fourth man will be revealed when the match happens. Bandido enters first despite being champion, The Lord subtly throwing shade his way. The White Rabbit and Marty are both The Order’s boys and so get all the pomp and ceremony for their entrances. The mystery man then walks through the curtain with a full black bodysuit concealing him. He power walks through the believers to the top of the stair way, where he tears away the bodysuit to reveal...DRAGO!!!! The dragon man receives a loud pop for his reveal out of shock. The Lord really booked one of the preliminary Aztec warriors to get a Lucha Underground Championship match, for no reason? Drago is here however, black tongue hanging from his mouth and blue scales covering his body. His pupils stare daggers through the hard camera as they do the other match participants. They all stare at each other as Shaul Guerrero runs down that it is a Lucha Underground Championship match. Marty can’t wait and goes on an early Superkick Party, throwing one at every enemy.
Bandido ducks his one and hits three Superkicks in a row. The first knocks him back, the second makes him fall into the ropes. The third then knocks him out the ring. He runs the ropes and goes to dive but The White Rabbit gets in his way. Bandido then jumps over him instead to Marty. He soaks in the crowd response and scales the ropes to jump back in. The White Rabbit catches him on the fall but drops him when Drago kicks him in the midsection. The White Rabbit then does a double clothesline! He poses in the middle of the ring with all the other competitors around him laid out. Drago rolls out and fights with Marty on the outside. Drago tries to throw him into the office wall, but Marty reverses and throws him in! Drago then lays out in front of the door. The Lord peeps through and smiles, before closing. Marty resumes his business where he stares at The White Rabbit. They tease a fight, but they instead double team Bandido. They beat down on him for a minute or so. The White Rabbit goes for a Superplex, but Bandido counters into a Blockbuster! Marty then is hit with a Dropkick after Bandido jumps off The White Rabbit’s back! He heads out to Drago and throws him into the door, knocking it open. They fight in there, meanwhile Marty sets up some tables on the outside.
Bandido throws Drago back out the office after they fight in there. Drago drags himself into the ring and takes a breather on the ropes. No time for that though as Bandido comes in with a 21-Plex! Marty rushes at him, POP-UP CUTTER! Finger gun...pow. All that’s left is The White Rabbit. He pushes a ladder into the ring and sets it up, beside the tables on the outside. Bandido bangs his head off the side of the steel. The White Rabbit makes Irish whips him and Bandido rebounds off the ropes, heading for him. He tries to throw him over his head through the ladder, sending him through the tables, but Bandido dropkicks him into the ladder! He falls back and rebounds, only to be hit with a Pumphandle Slam! Bandido can’t quite make the cover. The White Rabbit repositions the ladder and grabs the rungs to pull himself back up. Bandido then climbs up after him and they fight on the top. Marty runs in to try and push it down, but Bandido jumps off in the nick of time! THE WHITE RABBIT CRASHES THROUGH THE TABLES!!! Marty looks in shock at what he just did. He goes back out to check on him. Bandido then pulls Drago into the ring and hits a Front Flip DDT! 1..........2.......3!!!! BANDIDO RETAINS HIS LUCHA UNDERGROUND CHAMPIONSHIP!!! Afterwards Salina walks out to look on in disapproval. She shakes her head, but sees Marty and runs off. “The Moth” chases after her.
Marty and Salina confrontation:
Everyone thinks the show has ended, but after the main event we see Marty Martinez and Salina de la Renta outside the temple. Marty is trying to get intimate but Salina refuses. Marty demands she oblige and reminds her of how powerful she is. He has the gauntlet of the gods so he can do whatever he wants. Salina then slaps him and runs off into the night.

2020.10.06 16:34 Trinity9139 Of Doctors and Madmen

"What the hell do you mean 'non-terrestrial'?"
"It means exactly how it sounds sir, the structure was not built by humans"
"Well what makes you say that Li?"
"Well sir, should I start with the fact that carbon dating places it at least 17,000 years old? Or should I begin with the fact that its databases are written in a language never before observed anywhere? Or should I start with the fact we're on Ganymede, sir"
"Those are all excellent point Li, what have we learned so far from it?
"Well, it's clearly non-terrestrial, it's old, and more importantly Captain, we might be able to translate it"
Captain Zhou Enlai beamed, he was just supposed to be a frigate bringing supplies to Europa colony, but now, something alien, right in our backyard.
"Captain..."
"Hm?"
"The ground team Sir, they, they've found a body"
"What?!"
"And Sir, it appears to be alive"
Immediately rushing to the shuttle bay, the Captain waited on his ground team to return, no doubt in his mind that some of the finest men and women of the People's Liberation Army Space Force would be more than capable. Upon seeing the shuttle, he readies himself to speak to the lieutenant of the team, Chiang.
"Lieutenant Chiang, what's the report?"
"Well, it appears to be an extraterrestrial, approximately 2.3 meters tall, weight of 30 kilos, and one ugly bastard"
"I'm glad to hear that, let's report this immediately and bring him back to Beijing."
"I hope you know Captain, this means quite a few medals, and some international issues"
"International issues sir?"
"Oh yes, while you've been at home after your successful expedition, the Cubans have sent a plane full of doctors to come examine it, they want samples and tests, the Americans demand we hand it over to them, likely an attempt to create something to revitalize their failed economy, the Germans want its armor, the Russians, well to be frank I don't think they even know what they want."
"Well that appears to be uh, quite a lot on your plate then, but what am I supposed to do? I'm just a frigate captain."
"Well you're no longer just any captain, you're Captain Zhou Enlai of the PLASF, first contactor of an alien species, ambassador of humanity."
"I'm honored by the titles but, I'm not any of that."
"I'm kidding with you Zhou, we will be promoting you however, and sen-"
Interrupted by a man in a science coat bursting inside the room, a frantic look on his face, on of joy, and terror,
"GENERAL, SOMETHING'S HAPPENING"
"Well? What is it?"
"I , s-sir i-it's transmitting something from it's suit, and sir..."
"Well? Out with it man!"
"Europa colony just reported several large ships near Saturn, and they aren't ours..."
Just a little idea I had rattling in my head the last few days, any feedback is welcome :)

From The Halls of Montezuma to the Depths of Outer Space III:
What’s In a Name? (3/12)
That afternoon, Captain Gabriel’s entire detachment was shuttled the short distance to the Newport News Naval Starship Yards where they were met by Admiral Etheridge and his entourage. He exchanged pleasantries with the new detachment, nodding approvingly at the eager and motivated faces of the young Marines who had been chosen to be part of the unit. Finally, he shook hands with Captain Gabriel before leading the detachment to a large ferry that was waiting at the docks, floating on a sea of bright blue waves. The ferry pulled out into the sprawling Elizabeth River and turned north, cruising lazily past the massive ship building and repair facility on its right. The detachment was topside on the ferry as it cruised lazily over the calm waters, enjoying the salty breeze and watching the numerous docks pass by where fleet ships of every size and class were being refurbished and repaired.
The ferry soon passed the repair section of the facility and continued on towards the dry-docks, where new fleet ships were being constructed. The American star ship building industry was booming, with China and Russia having a larger, albeit less technically advanced, space fleet and the United States found herself having to play catch up. The ferry turned slightly to starboard, rounding a spit of land and entered a wide, man-made canal which fed into another dock area which was generally hidden from view from the bay. There, docked at the pier, a large starship floated in the water.
Gabriel squinted his eyes at the ship, glistening in a splinter camouflage pattern of light grays and blue-grays. The ship seemed very unusual to him. It was roughly 330 meters long and half of the star ship from the aft end and going almost to the middle of the ship resembled a fleet space exploration vessel. The remaining half of the fore of the ship resembled a fleet heavy destroyer complete with one, twin mounted, 8 inch kinetic weapons gun turret, one 5 inch kinetic weapons gun turret, and one quad Mk82 torpedo launch pad. At the aft of the ship was an additional 5in weapon gun turret and another Mk82 launcher. These were elevated over a wide landing pad at the very aft end of the ship which led into a hanger bay. Meanwhile, festooned around the ship were a further six close in defense weapon systems. It reminded Gabriel of Jenn’s Hel-Plus, a system that combined a gunship troop transport with a dedicated gunship but only on a much larger scale. If Frankenstein’s monster was a star ship, this definitely would be it.
“Folks,” yelled Admiral Etheridge loudly to be heard over the salty breeze and holding his arm out towards the unusual looking star ship. “May I introduce to you the newest vessel to enter fleet service, the USS Leyte (lay-tay) Gulf!”
He put his arms down, resting them on the railing of the ferry as he gazed smiling at the ship. “Yes,” he continued. “Almost two years ago, this fleet space exploration vessel was decommissioned and her name was stricken from naval records. Since then we have been refurbishing her, adding new weapons and sensor systems and updating navigation and propulsion systems. She is the first and only ship of its class and while she may look old, she is actually the most state of the art star cruiser of its kind. We’ve also updated and improved her crew compartments and installed several research labs, increased her data storage capacity, and her communications and telemetry ensemble is the most up to date in the galaxy. We’ve even equipped her with heat syncs, dampeners, and sensor absorbing panels to give her some stealth capabilities. Yes, Corporal Chensi?”
Corporal Chensi put down her hand, a large smile on her face. “Sir, what does the galley look like?”
“There are two and they’re the best in the fleet!” laughed Etheridge. “Open and serving food twenty-four hours a day!”
The ferry drew closer to the USS Leyte Gulf and the Marines could see plenty of activity as naval fleet sailors and civilian contractors moved about her decks. A hover plank descended from the USS Leyte Gulf to the ferry.
“I’m going to hit you,” whispered Sgt. Wagner to Chensi as the Marine detachment followed Admiral Etheridge and Captain Gabriel, moving from the ferry to the ship.
“What?” said Chensi. “The mess hall is the most important part of a ship. Everyone knows that!”
The officer on the quarterdeck was the ship’s XO, a tall redhead female named Commander Locksbridge. She greeted the admiral warmly before accompanying his entourage to the rear hanger deck of the USS Leyte Gulf.
Commander Locksbridge led the Marines through the ship down a confusing path of hatches and p-ways until they emerged again at the rear of the ship where the doors of a huge hanger bay was opened to the clear blue skies and sea. There was FOB (f-ah-b) landers parked inside the bay as well as one Helios gunship, although the bay was large enough to hold more. Outside, on the landing deck, sat an official looking civilian shuttle surrounded by six clean shaven men wearing dark glasses and sharp, black suits.
“Eventually,” said Locksbridge, “once we get our complete complement, we’ll have a pair of Helios gunships and a pair of Hel-Plus gunships as well as two or three detachments of Marines and two FOB landers. The USS Leyte Gulf has already gone through her mandatory sea and space trials, and she’s performed admirably,” explained Commander Locksbridge. “We still need to perform some system’s trials, but those we can do once we get underway. For now, though, there is someone who wants to meet you folks.”
Commander Etheridge turned as a tall naval officer, accompanied by a female civilian, approached Admiral Etheridge and the Marines. “Oh, here comes the captain now,” smiled Locksbridge. “Captain Bossmarc, this is Admiral Etheridge. Sir, this is Captain Bossmarc, commander of the USS Leyte Gulf.”
Admiral Etheridge shook Captain Bossmarc’s hand. Captain Laurence Bossmarc was a lean, muscular, black officer with a thin moustache and piercing gray eyes. Captain Bossmarc was a minor celebrity amongst the fleet and was a fleet recruiter’s dream. He was the starting quarterback of the Southern States Black Panthers until an injury sidelined him and forced him into early retirement from professional football. However, instead of taking a more lucrative job in sports broadcasting, Bossmarc decided to become a fleet naval officer where his determination and proven leadership abilities rocketed him up the ranks.
“It is so good to finally meet you, sir,” said Captain Bossmarc. “Welcome aboard.” He smiled broadly at the admiral before turning to the civilian female by his side. “Sir, may I please introduce you to…”
“I know the good admiral, Captain Bossmarc,” smiled the lady, stepping forward and wrapping her arms around Admiral Etheridge in a hug. The woman was in her late 30’s and very attractive like a model with naturally tanned skin, full lips, and wavy brown hair which came down to her slender waist. She was also taller than Admiral Etheridge by almost half a foot. “How are you, Gordon? I haven’t seen you since before the mission to Willow’s World!”
“I’m fine, Madam President. Busy, but never better!” Though President Melianne Helania only wore a plain tailored white outfit she still looked stunning. “Madam President, may I introduce you to Captain Samuel Gabriel and his Marine detachment?”
Gabriel looked at his Commander in Chief with amazement. President Helania was more beautiful in person than she was on vid-cam. Keeping his professional demeanor and military courtesy intact, Captain Gabriel saluted his president then bowed slightly, shaking her hand. “It is a pleasure to meet you, Madam President.”
President Helania waved her left hand and shook her head, hugging Captain Gabriel as she hugged the admiral. “Nonsense, Captain Gabriel. It is a pleasure to meet you and your Marines. Thank you, thank you, thank you for coming. It is such an honor to meet you.”
She stepped back, looking at the detachment of awestruck Marines. “And thank all of you for what you do.” President Helania clasped her hands in front of her. “I cannot tell you how grateful that I and your nation are for your courage and sacrifices. I truly cherish all of you.”
“As you know, my first husband of over ten years was a Marine just like yourselves, an aerospace fighter pilot. I was working for the State Department at the time, helping Americans immigrate to South America, Mexico, and Canada during the last failed Commu-Socialist attempted takeover of America. Plus I was also raising the twins, so it was difficult, what with Jack being gone so much. So, I know what it’s like spending weeks, months, even years waiting for him to return, praying and worrying for him. Looking back, however, I wouldn’t trade a second of it, even when he one day failed to return.”
She smiled sadly. “I know that he died doing what he enjoyed doing. He loved being a Marine, and I loved him very much for it. He was the bravest man I’d ever known. That is why I cherish all of you, because I know the pain and heartache that one feels when their service member does not come home. Thank you so much for what you do.”
There was a lump in every Marine’s throat as President Helania walked down the line greeting and hugging every Marine in the detachment, starting with Lieutenant Rhamsburg, then Gunny Boyer, then the squad leaders SSgt. Talley SSgt. Hernandez and Sgt. Wagner. Corporal Chensi stared wide eyed, her mouth agape as President Helania made her way down the line of Marines and finally stood in front of her.
“I voted for you,” Chensi mumbled as Melianne hugged her.
“Corporal Hitchiro Chensi,” smiled the President. “I have heard and read a great deal about you, and your exploits on Willow’s World. How can anyone so young be so selfless and so brave?” Melianne placed her hands on Chensi’s shoulders, smiling in admiration. “You’re my hero, you know? Just be careful.”
“I voted for you,” Chensi mumbled again.
Melianne giggled and hugged Chensi again. “Thank you, Corporal Chensi, for the vote of confidence. But do me a favor and don’t blow up your flame-gun the next time you deploy, okay?”
President Helania stepped to the side, greeting the next Marine in the row, LCpl.Houser. He nearly passed out when she hugged him tightly.
“I voted for you,” Chensi mumbled again, eyes still wide and unblinking, mouth still hanging open.
The detachment stayed in Norfolk for four days, alternately learning the layout of the USS Leyte Gulf, studying the latest intel on the Skinny-Mogues, going over the latest intel telemetry from the naval fleet ships currently operating in the area, and going over tactics, strategies and contingency plans to deal with the pirates. Replaying video footage of the engagement between the USS Houston City and the Skinny-Mogue attackers, an interesting thing was discovered. The pirate ships had been modified to carry what looked to be plasma beam type weapons, but when the first twelve Skinny-Mogues fired at the USS Houston City, half of the pirate attackers simply just blew up. This phenomenon did not occur during the pirate’s subsequent attack runs on the USS Houston City, only during the initial opening barrage. Skinny-Mogue was a derisive name given to the pirate clans due to their relatively thin shaped and thin skinned attack ships which were usually armed with a variety of jury-rigged weaponry, a turret mounted gun, and a second turret in the rear of the gunship which housed a grappling hook. Though they outnumbered the single patrol corvette and were apparently armed with some type of plasma beam weapon, the Skinny-Mogues were ultimately unable to destroy the USS Houston City and she was able to escape, inflicting heavy casualties on her pirate attackers.
Though the fleet knew which sector of space the Skinny-Mogues retreated to, it was still a lot of space to cover. What made matters worse was the fact that the sector of space they were operating had been claimed by the Russian Confederation as they had occupied two Class One planets in that sector and were in the process of establishing a half dozen more, though there were no actual international treaties or agreements which stated that the sector of space belonged solely to the Russians. The problem was that the Skinny-Mogues were probably using alien technology to carry out their attacks, and if the US should confiscate that technology, the Russians would more than likely lay claim to it and attempt to take it by force. Though the Americans had one Marine assault ship, one destroyer and two corvettes operating in the area, they were separated by great distances and would not necessarily be able to support each other if a greater Russian force of ships arrived. And with the US fleet spread so thinly across that sector of the galaxy, there would be no guarantee that help would arrive in time to stop the Russians from taking what the Americans had found.
Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base, California, four days later:
The Marines returned from Norfolk to Camp Pendleton on a Friday payday. It was late in the afternoon, so Captain Gabriel released the detachment for the weekend except for Corporal Chensi and her squad leader, Sergeant Wagner. Gabriel had a knot in his stomach.
“Sir, please don’t do this,” begged Chensi. She was in Captain Gabriel’s office standing at parade rest in front of his desk. Sergeant Wagner stood two steps behind her and to her left, also standing at parade rest. “I can’t be the only person who is a qualified flame-gun instructor.”
Captain Gabriel looked up at Chensi from his seat, trying to appear as impassive as possible. Gunny Boyer sat at another desk across the room, also trying to appear as stoic as he could. Lieutenant Rhamsburg stood behind the captain’s desk, leaning against a wall with her arms crossed.
“I’m sorry, Corporal Chensi,” said Captain Gabriel. “But my mind is made up. I’m afraid that you’ll be sent back to battalion next week to be the subject matter expert on flame-gun and crew served weapons training. Being a part of weapon’s squad for so long, that makes you the perfect choice.”
Technically, Captain Gabriel wasn’t lying. Chensi was part of weapon’s squad for over two years and had qualified expert on all of the heavy and crew served weapons and that made her the prime candidate for the battalion’s heavy weapons instructor. But it ate at his guts that the reason why he was dropping Chensi from the team was because that was Lieutenant Rhamsburg’s condition to be the detachment executive officer. Captain Gabriel had to consider the good of the unit over the personal desires of an individual.
“But, sir,” said Chensi. “I don’t want to leave the team. I don’t understand why you are sending me back to the battalion.”
“Because you are way too careless, Corporal Chensi,” said Lieutenant Rhamsburg. “And carelessness will get you killed. You were lucky on Willow’s World. Hell, you got lucky twice. But that was it. Sheer luck! One day, though, your luck is going to run out and I’m not going to have another Marine die under my watch because she was careless!”
Chensi stared at Lieutenant Rhamsburg, fighting hard to bite back her tears. “Ma’am,” she said, slowly. “I did not do what I did on Willow’s World out of carelessness. I didn’t put myself between two politicians’ spoiled brat kids and an army of undead because I was careless. I didn’t flame a bunch of the undead to distract them away from my Helios gunship because I was careless. And I didn’t blow up both of my flame-guns because I was careless. I did it all on purpose, because that was my mission.”
Chensi turned back to Captain Gabriel. “They’re more than my team, sir. They’re my family. I feel closer to them than I do to my own siblings; even my idiot brother who joined the Army and thinks it’s a good idea to jump out of a perfectly good aerospace craft.”
“And did you even think, just for one second, about the consequences of your actions if one of your reckless stunts backfired?” retorted Lieutenant Rhamsburg.
“None of us would be standing here if one of my ‘reckless stunts’ had backfired,” said Chensi in a slow, deliberate tone. “But then again, if I hadn’t acted so ‘recklessly’, none of us would be standing here.”
“You don’t know that, Corporal!” shouted Rhamsburg.
“I think we’re done here,” said Captain Gabriel abruptly looking up from his desk into the pleading eyes of his young flame gunner. His heart was heavy, but Gabriel kept his face as unemotional as he could. “Corporal Chensi, you’ll report to the Battalion S3 operations officer on Monday as a weapons training instructor. You’re dismissed, Corporal.”
Chensi came to attention and saluted, tears now flowing freely down her cheeks. “I thought you said… I thought you said that we never leave a Marine behind. Ever.” She executed an about face and quickly left the office, closing the door behind her.
“Sir?” said Sergeant Wagner, coming to attention.
“You’re excused as well, Sergeant Wagner,” said Gabriel looking down as if ashamed. “Have a good weekend.”
“Aye, aye, sir,” said Sergeant Wagner, saluting before turning and leaving the office.
The air seemed to hang thickly in the office as the door shut behind Sergeant Wagner, and silence reigned for a few seconds. Finally, Gunny Boyer said, “Hitchiro Chensi, Corporal. United States Marine Corps” He was reading her data file.
“Twenty-one years old. Born September 6, 2354 in Honolulu, Hawaii. She joined the Corps on her eighteenth birthday. Her father was a weapon systems officer with a fleet Star Phantom squadron. When Chensi was only two years old, her father was killed when a drunk driver slammed into his hover car when he was driving home from duty. Her mother never remarried and works for the Department of Defense as a linguist for fleet intelligence at Pearl Harbor. She speaks fluent Japanese, Mandarin, Cantonese, Ebonics, Tagalog, Russian, German, and Korean.”
“Chensi has a brother who is two years older than her who is an aero-space jump trooper with the Army’s 101st Screaming Star Eagles. He’s been deployed off world for the past two years. Chensi also has a twin brother, Akiro, who has just started Navy boot camp,” continued Gunny Boyer.
“Chensi,” whispered Sergeant Wagner. “What the hell are you doing?”
“Shhhhhhhhh…” said Chensi, waving away Sergeant Wagner with her hand. “I can’t hear what they’re saying.”
Corporal Chensi and her squad leader Sergeant Wagner were huddled outside of Captain Gabriel’s office, Chensi’s ear pressed firmly against the closed door.
“I think Gunny is talking about me,” she whispered.
“Chensi,” insisted Sergeant Wagner. “We’ve already been over this with the commander. Will you just trust Captain Gabriel?”
“Shhhhhhhhhh…” said Chensi , waving her hand again.
Inside Captain Gabriel’s office, Gunny Boyer put down the data pad, looking at Lieutenant Rhamsburg. “By the age of twenty-one, she’d already earned two Bronze Star Medals with ‘V’ device and one Meritorious Service Medal with ‘V’ device, all for displaying conspicuous courage and selfless sacrifice in the face of overwhelming odds. The military flows through Corporal Chensi’s blood. It’s been a part of her ever since she was born. Personally, I don’t see Chensi’s actions as reckless, ma’am. I see someone who is genuinely comfortable with who she is and who cares about her team mates, though, occasionally it is a full time job for her squad leader to reel her in.”
Lieutenant Rhamsburg looked down, sighing. She hadn’t considered that Chensi’s actions during operations may have come from a deeply ingrained sense of duty and esprit de corps to those she considered not only her team mates but also her family. Wasn’t that what set the Marines apart from every other branch of the service? Wasn’t it that sense of duty, honor, and selfless service that made Corporal Chensi such a great Marine?
“Chensi’s a Marine who believes in what we’re doing.” Captain Gabriel breathed heavily as he sat up. “More than once, she’s put her life on the line to protect others and, like Gunny said, I don’t think it was acts of recklessness.”
Captain Gabriel turned to Lieutenant Rhamsburg, but looked down regretfully. “I’d love to have you stay as my XO, Lieutenant Rhamsburg, I really would. You are the most qualified lieutenant in the entire brigade. But it would kill Chensi to separate her from those she considers family, and I just can’t do that to that young Marine.”
“Yeah,” said Rhamsburg. “Neither can I. It’s just that Chensi just reminds me so much of Private Meli. Booting her from the detachment would be like killing Meli twice.”
Lieutenant Rhamsburg looked down again and sighed. “Sir, I know that I’m seriously going to regret this, but I’d like to withdraw my condition to have Chensi off the detachment. She belongs here with her team. With her family.”
Captain Gabriel exhaled and smiled, relief written all over his face. “Thank you, Lieutenant Rhamsburg,” he said.
The two looked up as they suddenly heard Chensi’s voice loudly exclaim, “Yippieeee!” from the other side of the closed office door.
Gunny Boyer rolled his eyes. “Damn it, Chensi,” he thought.

2020.10.04 16:59 chankljp Russian unifiers that deserves to have their own special interactions in the superregional stage

At the moment, once you have gotten past the starting regional unification stage and consolidated you rule, instead of having a new focus tree, the various unifiers that managed to come out on top will simply have a generic unification decision in perpetration for either a diplomatic or military reunification when dealing with the whoever else came out on top of the regional next to yours.
While totally understandable given how much extra work will have to be put in by the developers if every warlord is given their own unique focus tree in dealing with their neighbor considering the sheer number of possible variations, I couldn’t help but feel a lot of interesting narrative and storytelling opportunities were missed with the generic unification decision.
As such, I have decided to compile this list of all the various Russian unifiers that I think deserve to have their own special interactions with each other during the superregional stage:

- Chita vs. Vyatka: This one should be the most obvious. Two monarchist warlords both claiming to be the successor to the Romanov throne, with Vladimir obviously the one with the more legitimate claim to the title. If Mikhail had failed to seizes power from the White Army clique, I highly doubt Shepunov would be interested in relinquishing power over to Vladimir no matter what. On the other hand, if Chita took the loyalist path, and Mikhail is in charge of Chita as a constitutional monarch, and Vladimir have either Gul or Shulgin as his Prime Minister… Would Mikhail be willing to peacefully relinquish his claim over to his cousin, at return back home to Australia at long last, happy in the knowledge that Russia is in safe and capable hands? Or would Mikhail have become so utterly convinced that he destiny is to lead and save Russia at this point, that the once reluctant outright refuses to stand down?
Or perhaps if Solzhenitsyn's Solidarists are in power in Vyatka, while Mikhail had been replaced with Nikita over in Chita, the two Tsars can have a ‘Oh, you got puppeted by your own government too? Yeah, I know exactly what you mean… That really sucks…’ moment with each other.
If they do manage to get a peaceful unification, perhaps there can be a heartwarming scene, with both monarchs embracing each other, reminiscing about how the last time they saw each other was back in 1937 during a party in France, and agreeing to work together as a family to restore Russia to greatness.

- LibDem Vyatka/Loyalist Chita vs. Any other republican LibDem/ConDem warlord Fellow liberal democracy or not…. Republicanism is by definition, incompatible with a monarchy, even a constitutional one. Would say… Yeltsin in Sverdlovsk, or whoever is in charge as the republic’s president over in Tomsk be willing to become a simple opposition party under Tsar Vladimir or Mikhail’s constitutional monarchy? Or alternatively, if Vladimir or Mikhail really wants what is best for Russia, would they be willing to do what Queen Elizabeth can potentially do over in England if SLP wins the election, to become a simple citizen living under the new republic in exchange of keeping their royal assets and estates?

- Aryan Brotherhood/Samara vs. Omsk …. This goes without saying, but can you imagine the sheer level of brutality and pure hatred that the Black League will have when fighting against these Nazi worshipers/German collaborators? It would be treated like a test run for the Great Trial, as Black League soldiers are given a ‘Shoot on sight’ order against anyone they encounter in Western Russia, as every single man, woman, and child in the areas under their control will be deemed as being guilt on the crime of collaborating with these regimes. Even if you oppose the Brotherhood/Samara, you are still guilty of failing to resist them hard enough, making you just a guilty.
On the other hand, if Omsk gets pushed to the defensive by either the Aryan Brotherhood or Samara, the level of resistance that they will be putting up will be so epic to the point of making the SS looks like a bunch of pacifists. Forcing you to kill them down to literally the last person, as they would rather burn every village down instead of allowing them to fall into the hands of German lapdogs.

- Suslov’s Komi vs. Any other socialist unifier Considering that Suslov is basically the man who made it his life’s mission to determine what the Marxist-Leninist Orthodoxy is in the Soviet Union…. He might consider everyone else’s take on socialism, from Party Irkutsk’s Dengist style economic policies to LibSoc Sablin’s take on workplace democracy to be ‘revisionist’, and hence, he needs to fight against them in order to restore proper Leninist orthodoxy.
For that matter, considering that Suslov is an upholder of Marxist-Leninist orthodoxy under the USSR, and that Bukharinism would be the official pre-WW2 Soviet Ideological orthodoxy…. When he encounters Kaganovich’s Tyumen, in an ironic twist, would he end up condemning Stalinism as ‘revisionist’?

- Bukharina’s Komi vs. LibSoc/AuthSoc Sablin The two of them share so much in common in terms of their goals and ideology that reguardless of if Sablin goes LibSoc or AuthSoc, they really shouldn’t even have the option of going to war with each other, and just automatically have a peaceful reunification with each other. But perhaps AuthSoc Sablin will be able to relate to Bukharina a lot better, considering that type of questionable things that both of them had to do in order to gain power in the name of the world revolution.

- Serov’s Ordosocialist Komi vs. Any other socialist unifier Doesn’t matter which socialist warlord, I am sure that everyone from Yagoda to Sablin would be utterly shock and disgusted at what Serov had twisted his take on socialism into, defiling the name of the revolution with his extra revisionism. Perhaps having to take extra time in rehabilitating the socialist cause in the eyes of the people after all the damage that Ordosocialism did to those under Serov’s rule, as reflected by a much longer coring time compared to normal.

- Taboritsky vs. Man’s Divine Mandate Similar to the above. But the Christian version of the same disgusted and shock reaction on the part of Man upon seeing what Taboritsky’s Regency did to the people under his rule. I am sure that even the Lord’s mercy has its limits, and Taboritsky’s unholy heresy had crossed the line by miles.

- Divine Mandate vs. Black Army Christian anarchists verses socialist anarchists. If anything, the Black Army will honestly not be able to accuse Man of being a statist, since he is clearly NOT someone that calls for centralized control. Yet at the same time, their worldviews are simply too different for any peaceful unification or compromise to take place.

- Irkutsk vs. WRRF Regardless of if Yagoda stays in power, by virtue of Irkutsk being the official remnant of Bukharin’s Presidium of the Supreme Soviet, legally speaking, Irkutsk is the same central government that the leadership of the WRRF once served under during WW2. Hence, once the two sides meet, it would technically be a case of the legitimate Soviet government reestablish contact with a stranded branch of the Red Army that got left behind during the retreat, hence, the WRRF’s leadership should immediately fall back in line and turn control over to the civilian government…. But somehow, I have a feeling that neither Zhukov nor Tukhachevsky would be incline to do so, perhaps saying that when Bukharin went AWOL, the civilian side of the old Soviet government ceased to exist, making Irkutsk’s claim illegitimate. With the latter presenting the war against the WRRF as a case of, ‘wrangling in a group of insubordinate Red Army officers that have gone rouge’.

- WRRF vs. Sablin
Zhukov: (Eyeing Sablin up and down, with an unimpressed expression on his face) Listen, boy. I fought in both the Great Patriotic War and the West Russian War, bled on countless battlefields in the name of Mother Russia. Played in key role in forging and maintained the Revolutionary Front against all odds while the fascists rained bombs upon us daily. Most importantly, under my leadership the Red Army have united this entire region from Arkhangelsk to the Urals by defeating every despot, fool, madman, and lunatic who stood in our way. So tell me, ‘General secretary’, what have you done that is remotely similar to that? Why should be listen to orders from someone that was still in his diapers when we were already fighting tooth and nail for the Soviet Union?
Sablin: Well, comrade Marshal…. To start, I managed to defeat Yagoda's securocratic revisionist regime, while they had better-trained troops, better access to equipment, and outnumbered us, with my fellow comrades and I claiming the rightful mantel as the legitimate successor to the Soviet government. Afterwards, I was able to unite the Buryat and Yakut peoples to my cause, defeating a trio of reactionaries in the form of Tsarists and fascists, not to mention a group of misguided religious fanatics that suddenly and unexpectedly popped up the villages up north while everyone else was distracted. From the desolate waste of the Far East, we were able to keep Lenin’s dream of the better world alive, creating a genuine Soviet democracy… How does that sound, do you wish for me to continue?
Zhukov: …. Come! You are one of the good ones! Share a bottle of vodka with me!

- Irkutsk vs. Tomsk In the backstory, the key contributing factor that caused the original Central Siberian Republic’s collapse was due to the invasion launched by Yagoda Far Eastern Soviet against them. So, an Tomsk that managed to reform the CSR verse an Irkutsk that reunited the Far East would in many ways be round 2 of the same Siberian War that started everything years ago.
For Tomsk, it would be a case of ‘Last time we fought, we were weak and disorganized. Now, it is payback time! Freedom shall not perish from this Earth!’; While for Irkutsk, it would be, ‘You idealistic fools again? Fine, I will make sure all of you stay dead and buried this time!’.

- Tomsk vs. LibSoc Sablin Both factions are unique in all the Russian warlords in that they are, at their core, defined by their overwhelming idealism and hopes of not just rebuilding a stronger Russia, but also creating a better world… Yet with perhaps the sole exception of Shostakovich’s Humanist with their utopian socialist worldview, every other salon in Tomsk envisions a capitalist republic that Sablin’s Soviet Union would never accept and vice versa, making conflict inevitable, as both sides that are filled with morally upstanding and good people were forced to take up arms and kill each other in determining who’s vision for a better future is correct on the battlefield.
Another thing to consider is that when reuniting the Far East, with the sole exception of the Father and his Divine Mandate (Who will most likely attack him first), Sablin woiuld only have to be fighting against unsavory regimes such as Yagoda's Irkutsk (A police state under an NVKD tyrant), Rodzaevsky's Amur (A literal insane Nazi), Matkovsky's Magadan (An opportunistic fascist snake), Chita (A military clique way past their expiration date holding a poor kidnap victim hostage to serve as their puppet Tsar), and Yakutia (An oligarchical corporate republic that made OTL 1990s' Russia look like Norway). While Aldan will just lay down their arms and peacefully intergrade with him. Therefore, when faced with foes such as these, of course it would be easy to think of Sablin as a wholesome liberator of the oppressed and downtrodden.
... But what happens when he needs to forcefully convert/spread Leninism to a regime such as Tomsk’s Central Siberian Republic? An otherwise idealistic, benevolent, and wholesome regime that nonetheless disagrees with him ideologically on a fundamental and irreconcilable level, where the people genuinely believe that their governments are improved their lives, and their leaders are fully ready to prove their devotion to their ideology and vision for Russia by paying the price in blood on the battlefield and look death in the eyes the same way that Sablin and his merry band of revolutionaries hanging out in their opera house does? AuthSoc might have had no problem or objections to the idea of him gunning down this ‘ivory tower bourgeois republic’, but LibSoc Sablin might have to do some serious soul searching afterwards.
The same goes for Tomsk’s leaders, with them perhaps realizing after their victory that Sablin was not an oppressive tyrant or ‘red bandit’ like Yagoda or Bukharin. And that as intellectuals that once craved freedom of speech and expression while under Soviet rule, they have perhaps become not that different from that regime that that once opposed by imposing their own views on someone else.
All the drama, sadness, ‘Is this worth it?’ self-reflection, etc, have lots of amazing story telling potential.

- Petlin’s Magadan vs. Any other LibDem/ConDem warlord As I have pointed out over on another post, A massive point for Petlin character arc was that he wants to establish a genuinely liberal democracy in Russia based on the American system. The problem is, even after he had overthrown Matkovsky, in the words of one of his focuses' description, the Russian people are, for the most part, completely and entirely unfamiliar with how democracy works. Hence, that was why he had to stay as an AuthDem in order to establish the framework and engaged in political tutorage until Russia is ready for democracy to be implemented, even if he himself is a genuinely a republican that would have wanted full liberal democracy ASAP....
So… What happen if it turns out that his worldview was ABSOLUTELY NOT the case at all? What if Central Siberia is united under Tomsk, Western Siberia under Yeltin's Sverdlovsk, and/or West Russia is under Kosygin’s democratic Komi? All of which being homegrown, genuine, and successful Russian democratic regimes that are freer and more liberal compared to Petlin's Magadan, complete with a fully workable democratic framework and system of government?
Suddenly, the entire ‘I will guide Russia until it is ready for democracy’ thing that he has going for him is no longer valid. Will be stay true to his beliefs and peacefully unite with the first homegrown Russia democracy he finds, happy in knowing that Russian people are ready for liberalism after all? Or will he show himself as being not that different than his former mentor Matkovsky after all, by going, ‘NO! Only MY take on democracy based on the US model is valid!’ and goes to war against the other liberals anyway?

- Kemerovo vs. Taboritsky ‘You meant to tell me that this entire blessed regent of Alexei thing was not an act to unite the people? He actually believes in all of his crap? …. Alright, it is time to put this mad dog down after all he had inflicted upon the Russian people! I might be the mad king, but I am not a mass murderer!’

- Sablin vs. Batov’s Sverdlovsk In many ways, Sablin and Batov are really similar to the point of being mirror reflections of each other when you really think about it: Both started out as a mutiny against a self-proclaimed Soviet successor state, and both cares deeply about the well-being of the civilians under their charge… The difference being that not matter if he stays LibSoc or goes AuthSoc, Sablin will always be a loyal Leninist, while Batov have entirely abandoned the communist ideology despite still being the Red Army and using Soviet heraldry and iconography. Would Sablin be furious at Batov for betraying the Union to the point of allowing bourgeoisie elections and opposition to form? Or would he be more understanding of Batov’s situation, and try to bring him back into the fold peacefully?

- Yeltsin’s Sverdlovsk vs. Any other socialist unifier Okay… So just as a reference to Yeltsin’s role in killing off the Soviet Union in OTL, combined with his memetic status within the TNO fandeom… I think that similar to the way that every Far East unifier have a unique kill event for Sablin after annexing Buryatia… I think that EVERY socialist unifier deserves to have a unique kill event for Yeltsin after annexing his West Siberian Republic.

- Humanist Tomsk vs. Aryan Brotherhood/Amu Taboritsky I think everyone would agree that out of all the Russian unifiers, Dmitry Shostakovich in Tomsk one of the most morally upstanding and benevolent person in the setting… He is also Jewish, and all know what the Aryan Brotherhood, Rodzaevsky, or Taboritsky thinks about Jewish people.
Having the Nazi fanboys of the Brotherhood or Amur, or Taboritsky’s own brand of BurgSys madness brutally murder everyone’s favorite composer, and systematically undoing all of his humanitarian efforts would be good reminder to the player that, yes, by playing as these madman, you are spreading their nightmare hell regime across Russia, undoing any good that remained in this cursed land…. Are you happy with what you have done?
On the other hand, having victorious Humanist Tomsk freeing all the slaves and sending in trucks filled with emergency relief supplies for the recently liberated victims that until recently have been suffering under said nightmare hell regimes would be a crowning moment of awesome for Tomsk.

- Modernists Tomsk vs. Zhdanov’s Ultravisionary Socialist Komi Both regimes advocate for technological progress and scientific development as a means to achieve their dream of a building a meritocratic capitalist liberal democracy, or a communist utopia respectively. Violent conflict would be unavoidable. In the aftermath, Tomsk might send in a specialist team of scientist to review the research logs on Zhdanov's projects, concluding that most of his social engineering stuff were worthless, but a few of his experimental weaponry could have some interesting potential. While for a victorious Zhdanov could lay claim to all of the science labs and universities that the Modernists have set up to further his own experiments.
