2022.01.26 10:45 honestlynotsid The Cold Fire
Fana was burning. She knew that. But didn’t know if she had it in her to stop it. The elven fire within didn’t want to stop. Gods was it hot. But somehow, her teeth couldn’t stop chattering. Somehow, she couldn’t uncurl herself from the small ball her body had formed, lest the cold swallowed her whole.
He had done this. Salazar. He had plunged a sword in Emma’s throat.
Right. In. Front. Of. Her. So cold. Why was it so cold? Couldn’t Balthazar get her a blanket like he always did? He would chide her for being so childish, “ A queen must present herself to be a fierce warrior, not an eight-year-old babe. Why don’t you wear the winter suit Lady Diana got you? But in the end, he would get the blanket nonetheless, as he had done for the last twenty-five years of her life, with a twinkle in his single eye and a smile on his weathered old face, as he put it around her shoulders. So cold. No, Neil Balthazar would never smile and get her a blanket again. Helga Thomson had seen to that.
Why was it so cold?
She felt tears running down her cheeks, but none of the relief of sobbing came. Just a hollow black. Eating her whole. The Silverfire in her veins burnt with enough ferocity to devour the whole of Varia. What good are you now? She asked her Elven heritage. Did her hands always shake this much?
Emma. Sweet, sweet Em. Emma Windsworth. The love of her life. Her wife. Dead.
Em, sweet lovely Em, the one person her age who didn’t scowl at her pointed ears, the one person who didn’t mock her lack of control over her Fire. The one person who saw what lay beneath her skin, and loved her all the more for it. The one person who saw all of her, and still chose to hold her hand and kiss her. How were Mother and Father? Did the assassins get them too? Or did Captain Tiberius get to them in time? She wasn’t sure if she had it in her to care anymore. She remembered seeing Balthazar’s expression as Helga plunged a dagger into his heart. “R..un.” And then, Neil’s eyes that seemed to be always alight with a calming beautiful fire, went black.
She couldn’t even cry out, it happened so fast, she just remembered Emma grabbing her hand, and running. Neil was dead. She kept seeing the last swing of the blade. Em had always been the best warrior in the city, but in front of Salazar’s death chant, even she had fallen.
Her beloved had lied. Em had lied. She said she would come back to her. She said that she would be okay. Emma Windsworth had lied. She understood now. Her wife had known she wouldn’t survive. She had just wanted Fana to get out, to run. To give her queen a chance.
If only Fana had been as deadly with the sword as Emma, maybe they could have found a solution. Maybe, Em wouldn’t have a Cursed Blade in her neck right now. She had, first out of shock, started to walk towards the hidden exit. Then without thinking, she turned back, back towards her love.
A malicious laugh.
The inevitable sound of Lady Death walking towards them.
Then the plunge.
Fana saw Em’s eyes as she walked away with Lady Death.
They seemed to be looking at her. Pleading her to run. The Queen of the 21 realms fell to her knees. And let go. She saw through tear-filled eyes, Salazar running. The fire that had tormented her for twenty-five long years demanded to be heard. It screamed. It roared. It hungered for blood. But there was no blood to shed. Only emptiness. Maybe the God’s for once pitied her. For the cold flames didn’t touch her lovely, lovely Emma. Emma, who now had a True Obsidian sword in her throat. The fire covered everything, her favorite chair, the bed, her paintings. Everything. But it failed to warm her even a little.
The Queen stayed there. Sitting across her beloved. For days, months, seconds, Fana didn’t know, time made no sense anymore.
And then, her heart, a broken, dead, and cold thing, melted.
And forged into something new.
Into something hard.
Into something sharp.
Into something deadly.
Into something, strong.
She took Em’s hand and kissed it. She would have her revenge. The Monarch stood up.
It wasn’t so cold anymore.

I have had jellies for a few years now, but it has been quite a pain and quite wasteful to buy gallon jugs of distilled water for making saltwater. Can anyone recommend a good RODI system to turn tap water into aquarium grade water? I don't know how many filtration stages I need or what specific features to look for.

2022.01.26 10:45 junkaccount1090 Did anyone else remember jazz used to be excited about certain things that would make her feel more like a girl, but now that she has them, she doesn’t care and focuses on another issue to fix?
I’ve watched this show on and off since it came on and I’ve seen Jazz’s old 20/20 and 60 minutes interviews.
I swear I remember jazz saying when she was younger that she was excited for the day she could start wearing bras and shaving her legs because it would make her feel more like a girl and more comfortable. She eventually got both when she started hormones but she still didn’t feel complete and wanted bottom surgery.
She got bottom surgery and everyone, including jazz, seemed to think getting bottom surgery would be the final thing jazz needed to feel complete as be happy. But even after getting surgery, jazz is still unhappy.
Now, jazz says she dislikes shaving her legs and wearing bras. Jeanette tried to say it’s because jazz is just a hippy. Buy jazz apparently also has to be told to dilate.
I know people can change and later decide they don’t like bras or don’t want to shave, but it just seems like Jazz is constantly searching for a new status symbol to make her feel more like a woman, and when she finally attains that status symbol, it doesn’t fix all of her issues of make her as happy as she thought, so she finds a new issue to fixate on and seeks out a new status symbol to attain to correct it.
Like after getting her surgery, jazz’s mental health suffered for whatever reason and she gained a lot of weight. This whole season now has largely focused on Jazz’s weight and her efforts to lose it and once she loses it, all her issues should be fixed.
Same thing with her independence and going to Harvard. She keeps saying once she gets to Harvard she’ll finally be an adult and independent. What was stopping her before? No shaming her living at home but besides that it just seems like jazz did nothing for herself. If she wanted independence why didn’t she move out? I remember her talking about that several years ago. Why is it Harvard or nothing? There’s plenty of good colleges in Florida that jazz could attend or possibly transfer once after she gets herself established.
It just seems like jazz is always chasing a high that she things will make her feel more like a woman or make her happier, but never does. And it never seems like this aspect is brought up to jazz

2022.01.26 10:45 KingRostam How should a Sunni Iranian feel about Umar and the conquest of Persia?
Shias, whether Iranian or not, obviously do not hold Umar to a high level so they must not have any issue in trying to answer this question, but how about Sunni Iranians? We all know what happened in Persia after it’s conquest. The persecutions, the killings, the heavy taxes imposed, etc. If you believe these events are partially or absolutely false then, by all means, disprove them.

2022.01.26 10:45 Easy_Blackberry_4144 RE2 Crack not running.
I've got the RE2 Fitgirl Repack and I have the same problem I've had with all other RE 2 Remake cracks. When I launch the game, a black window comes up for about 5 secs then closes. I've looked online and many people have had this problem but the solutions are things like "try updating your graphics drivers" when mine auto update. Or "Install the latest version of Direct X" which I've already done and no luck.
This has been a common problem with a lot of people with this game and I was wondering if anyone knew of a fix. It's not my PC. I can run RE 7, 8 and 3 Remake no problem

2022.01.26 10:45 sK_eez X470 Ultimate and Ryzen 7 5800x
I just upgraded my CPU last night from the Ryzen 5 to the Ryzen 7 5800x last night. When I went to start up the computer everything seemed to start with no issues except my Wi-Fi and my Ethernet would not show up. I tried a different cable and still nothing. Before I did the install I made sure to update my bios to the one that was needed for the Ryzen 7 to work properly so I’m very lost as to why this is an issue. If ANYONE could relate or even give me some ideas on how to fix it, it would be great. I read something about having to reinstall drivers for the bios through a USB (since I have no internet on my main pc) and I have read other things that say that didn’t help. I’ll take any advice and I’ll be able to try them tonight after work at 5pm EST and will get back to anyone that helps me fix this issue. Thanks everyone!
