Space Thinker D: Part 11"See D, I told you I could get things my way"
"They put a collar on you Alex?"
"Yeah, to track my whereabouts for the duration of the punishment"
"On the Domicile they'd make us go into isolation chambers with nothing to do but lists of things to memorize for a punishment."
"Did they now?"
"...They said it was 'to make sure we learned something."
"Well, did you learn something? No, don't tell me what it is, just tell me if you did."
"Yes, I'd say he did" 32 piped in, somewhat disgruntledly as she had had to carry a heavy piece of luggage up the steps to the manor. "I administered it to him."
"Say, what's that thing on your arm?" Alex was actually looking past D at this point and really talking to 32 but meant the growth from part 9.
"That's what we thought we could ask you Mr. Alex. Do you have notes from your father or grandfather about biomachinery?"
"That statue gives me the creeps."
"D, that isn't a statue that's my grand... hey no don't"
Space Thinker D: Part 10"Mr. Alex, the board finds you guilty of withholding information from the Cor."
"Is there a way I could buy my way out of it?"
"We will decide that amongst ourselves. you are a rather valued client and a contributing member so that may work in your favor but your violations of the terms of service in your contract shall not go without punishment. Punishments tend to be severe."
The council of the board of directors huddled together and murmured as they worked at reaching a consensus.
"Ahem! Well Mr. Alex, in recognition of your family's years of loyalty to the cor, we have elected to minimize your punishment. You will not be kicked off the board."
"We are not finished yet."
"...You will not be kicked off the board. However, you will be placed under house arrest for a length of time."
"I won't be allowed to leave my estate?"
"Correct; provisions will be made to allow you to continue carrying out most of your affairs fr
Space thinker D: Part 9The Artifacts, D and 33-a were brought up to the Domicile.
She reported on the report of D's findings to 32.
"It seems to have information inside it which D is able to read. Sort of. Mr. Alex insisted that we should take it to his mansion and said it would be relevant to some of the things there."
32 thought for a moment about the implications of this.
"So then that doesn't follow with his earlier story of being just a wealthy con who lacks basic understanding of the technology his family made for us." Now it made sense why Alex wanted to make the request that he did.
"We don't know that yet. He is being detained at the moment and z is talking to him."
"Well how is D doing? The machine didn't make him sick or anything, did it?"
"Why do you always ask about him? Don't you think I did a good j..."
32 shot 33-a a look that said 'I am still in charge.'
"... Yes 32. Sorry. He had a bit of initial redness and
Space Thinker D: Part 833-a was not too happy.
"You guys are a bunch of dumbasses. If the artifact reads as bioactive and leaking microorganisms you could all be infected and you just infected us. I may need to call off the whole dig. This isn't going to look good to 32 or the supervisor."
"33-a, wait, before you do that,- we never assembled the three pieces. Also, our initial analysis reads that the bugs on the outside are nonpathogenic. We wanted to get some people to check the insides first before trying to reassemble the apparatus."
Alex wandered past the cordoned off area of the camp and stared at the artifacts intensely for a few moments then looked away from them. Much like there was something he may have recognized about them but was not saying.
"I could, if it isn't any trouble allow you to put this system back together on my estate D, 33-a."
"You know I can't allow you to do that because it is against Cor regulations."
"Ah, well, at least I tri
Space Thinker D: Part 7"Hey new guy, get your head in the game!"
"I'm the thinker, I'm supposed to help you guys"
"Pffft thinkers. 84_f you get a load of this guy?"
"Not yet 89_w. Hey man, you going to direct us here or what? Stop thinking about how much more important you probably think you are than us and get with the directing here. Oh, that isn't what you were thinking about? Look Mac (oh, D, that's your name), this is a cor company job. we've got to know what we're looking for. Start interpreting our data ok?"
The two diggers having said their peace, a chief hacker stepped forward.
"77_K reporting. Look man, do you have any idea what the people up top want us to find...? Cracking this old security won't be too tough, I've been practicing a lot."
D reflected for a moment. "They said this used to be a research hospital"
"Let me finish"
"alright 89_f, let the man finish."
"Continuing,... the records say that back i
Space Thinker D: Part 6"Okay D, I'm not exactly thrilled to be your field manager either, but just do what your job is from the file or whatever. I don't particularly care, if you mess up it isn't my problem." 33-a also grumbled a bit about having to mind the project, it not being fair because they were about the same age so what makes D special and how she'd rather be doing something else.
"So do I meet up with the team of workers now?"
"Okay, workers, we have an assignment today..."
"We know," said one of the archaeology diggers. "The cor gave us pamphlets already."
"Oh. Uh, this is my first time doing this."
"We kind of figured that."
"Look, are we going to work together as a team or not?"
At this point a hacker chimed in "Relax D, we know what we're supposed to do already, you just need to manage us a bit then turn in a report to her. The site is about 10-12 kilometers away from us. If you find something odd tell us but in the meantime just tr
An FC is Like a ChildHey, thought I'd bring up something that's come to me. Now, I've been going around the Sly Cooper fandom, and saw a couple of well-developed FCs that are the love interests of Sly Cooper and Carmelita Fox. I was originally going to call her out for that, but then I saw the effort she put into them. It made me realize something that I didn't know I was doing long ago.
An FC/OC is something like your child. Once it's brought into the world, it has to grow in a way that's similar to how we grow. We put them through life experiences, break their hearts, help them achieve goals, and in the end, get a well balanced character with a story of his or her own.
Sapphire is pretty much all grown up at this point (mostly), I want to restart Terry's legacy (as a thief this time), and I've got new plans for Nicole, Sly's soon-to-be adopted daughter.
But let me give you a word of advice: If you dislike my FCs, then I have every right to dislike yours. And that's pretty rare for me, but it's typically
Questions for the Communists, Nazis, and Similar.As the title states, I have some questions for people who DA who follow things like Communism or Nazism. So without further ado-
Why do you follow an ideology that committed some of the worst acts of censorship in the 20th Century?
Why do you follow an ideology that stifles(and in nearly all cases punishes) any creativity that is not in line with the central leadership?
Why do you follow an ideology that doesn't permit individual/free-thinking which is practically key for artists and writers?
Why do you follow an ideology that demands that a painting or story's meaning is not decided by the creator or reader/viewer but by the central leadership?
Why do you follow an ideology that has no problem killing or imprisoning artists or writers if they creates things that go against the central leadership?
Environmentalist? Nah.Why I don't call myself an environmentalist even though I believe in protecting and caring for God's creation.
Caring for nonhuman things and creatures is nothing new. God gave humanity the responsibility to care for creation, and since then farmers, merchants, pet owners, gardeners, monks and more have learned by trial and error, from professional to apprentice, how to care for the animals and plants they use; they even became familiar with nonliving things, learning to clean and reserve water, and to use soil carefully. Draining of resources due to mismanagement and overuse has lead to quite a few falls of various cultures and civilizations, and even today we are seeing people becoming sick in urban areas where they are not getting adequate air and water. The connection between a healthy world and a healthy population is undeniable.
For me, it goes even deeper than physical necessity. The frayed relationship between mankind and nature is a stark reminde
Question for Hogwarts
HARRY POTTER: WHY DID THE CHICKEN CROSS THE ROAD?
HARRY: Hmm, the Triwizard Trophy depends on me guessing this right, so there must be more to this riddle than there seems. Let's think, a chicken, a road, what reason…birdfeed on the other side? He's being chased by something on this si—what, it's a trick question! He crossed the road…to get to the other side!
RON: Maybe he had to save his friend from the bloody Dursleys!
HERMIONE: chicken: a small, flightless bird…
VERNON DURSLEY: CHICKENS DO NOT CROSS ROADS! That's just a load of rubbish!
PETUNIA DURSLEY: I think I saw that disgusting animal leaving the sidewalk while I was spying on the neighbors this morning. I mean, when I was watering the flowers.
DUDLEY DURSLEY: Chicken? You mean like a chicken-sundae? Mum, I want a chicken sundae, NOW! I WANT CHICKEN SUNDAE MUUUUM!
HAGRID: Aw, chickens are borr'n. Let's talk about dragons or giants or someth'n.
DUMBLEDORE: This is a complicated question,
Deep Cliff #24 What's Up With Miley Cyrus
Question: What’s With Miley Cyrus?
Hello, and welcome to yet another Deep Cliff, where I listen to your questions and bring you in depth answers. I’ve got a few new questions to answer, but some of them will require some careful thought before I answer them, so in the mean time…I’ll address an old one that I got some time ago from a friend.
I love to listen to music. In my opinion, music is more than just entertainment…it’s art. Music can move people through beautiful and meaningful lyrics, powerful beats, soothing melodies, and so on. I for one have always loved classical music, but I believe there is something good to be found in all genres. Mika prefers the techno and dubstep style music, which I enjoy as well, but not to the same degree. Music impacts all people and in different ways. For this reason, I often catch myself reviewing and critiquing music. I’ll be driving with the radio on and, when a song comes on that I haven’
Children's StoriesAre children’s stories only good for children, or can adults enjoy them as well?
Well, there’s a quote by C.S. Lewis: “A children’s story that can only enjoyed by children isn’t a good children’s story in the slightest.”
If one is to look at some children’s stories today, one may notice that the there is little consequence or everything is cushioned into something that is just happy all the time. And if there is conflict, it’s either very minor or it’s always resolved with little development.
What C.S. Lewis was saying is that those kind of stories aren’t good for children in the very least because they don’t even give them even just a taste of what real life is like or what they’ll have to face when they’re older.
Now think about your most memorable movies as a child. It may have been a Disney or Dreamworks movie, but what was it that made the movie appealing to you as a child? If you
XY theory: Why the Team Flare members have eyewearOkay, something minor this time, but I believe one user gave me an interesting theory. Now Team Flare have been known for having something over their eyes. I actually think they're masking their identity somewhat.
There is a story by a user that depicts Serena putting on the apparel that defines Team Flare. In that story, she put on color contacts. Other members may have had to do that as part of a dress code. I'm not too sure why, but I think it's so that they may seem unrecognizable to people they once knew.
I mean think about it: many of them look the same (but then again, so do other villainous organizations. This may apply to other lower rank members of other Teams as well) This may be taken to a slight extreme.
And given Lysandre's belief that most humans are corrupt, he felt that the only way to "purify" them was to convert them to his beliefs and make them look alike.
But I think this is healthier than gouging one's eyes out, don't you think?
Editorial: The Point of No ReturnYou’re playing an RPG and don’t think twice about keeping more than one save file, instead constantly overwriting the same file whenever you save your hard-earned progress in the game. However, you ultimately reach a point, maybe in a long dungeon, when you wish to turn back and level up a little or purchase better equipment for your party, except you can’t. Congrats, you’ve just encountered a point of no return.
Points of no return, frankly, are an element that simply should not exist in RPGs, alongside the potential to not be able to win a game at all. One particularly notable offender in this aspect is the Squaresoft (now Square-Enix) RPG Saga Frontier, which in this writer’s experience was king of this trope, and one of the main reasons he couldn’t beat the game in over seven years after acquiring it as a present, the thought not having crossed his mind of grinding and/or learning and using a secret skill that was literally the difference

Leaving Southampton She was in the kitchen when he stumbled in noisily, tripping as he went past the shelves and catching the edge of the table to keep himself from falling.
Pretending not to hear the stream of curses that followed, she kept her eyes fixed on the dishes, letting her hand trail in the soapy water. There was a loud scraping of wood against grimy concrete as he drew a chair and collapsed into it. At this she looked up, and after a moment's hesitation, she said, unnecessarily, "You've been drinking."
He clutched his head and said nothing. He hadn't shaved in weeks and stank of sweat and alcohol; he looked much older than his eighteen years.
They sat in silence for a while. Then he announced, loudly, "Fuck."
She didn't bother to tell him off. She just waited. And jumped when he suddenly brought his fist down, hard, onto the table.
"Our lives here are s
