TRIP REPORT : 8 Night Colorado Trail - Collegiate Loop Thru-Hike

2020.08.26 17:21 abrandonshipppp TRIP REPORT : 8 Night Colorado Trail - Collegiate Loop Thru-Hike

Saw a previous trip report for this route here, and I found it very helpful. Thought I’d return the favor. Hope it's helpful, amusing, or some combination of the two. First trip report / first ever Reddit post….be gentle ;)
3900 words
Where: Collegiate Loop - Colorado Trail - San Isabel National Forest - Collegiate Peaks Wilderness
Direction: Counter Clockwise
When: 2020/08/10 - 2020/08/18
Distance: 161-ish miles // 36k-ish ft elevation gain
Start / Finish Location: Cottonwood Pass Trailhead, Buena Vista, Colorado
Conditions: Couldn’t ask for better. Clear skies with some afternoon overcast. Never really checked temps...for what it's worth, I found them comfortable :)
Pics: Should have taken more. First few are the MYOG pack I carried, the rest are from the trip....generally in order. Did a lot of experimenting with vertically oriented panoramas. https://photos.app.goo.gl/YHmPU4nYCZKqu5x69
Lighterpack: I don’t have the attention span for Lighterpack. Main stuff is accounted for - Pack weighed around 10.5 ehl-beez before consumables. https://www.lighterpack.com/fdnlhp
Resupply: 1 - Mt. Princeton Hot Springs ( Mailed a box )
Hike Prep: I’m a CO resident, so it was pretty straight forward putting this trip together...not my first CT rodeo. Being a loop, there was no added headache of drop-off / pick-up logistics. Got an early start this hiking season on local trails, of which there are many, and am a reasonably in-shape dood. I’ve been day hiking 3 or 4 times a week with baseweight + water since the trails dried, #socialdistancing. Confident in a 8-9 day hike timeline, I picked Cottonwood Pass as my entry / exit point because it was 1) less than 2 hours from my house, and 2) it made Mt Princeton Hotsprings the de facto half-way/resupply point and was located literally on the trail. Easy peasy. Also, I hiked Segments 11 and 12 SOBO last summer and thought since I’d be hiking them again, covering those miles in the opposite direction would freshen them up, so I planned for a counter-clockwise heading. 99% of the Loop hikers I met on trail started / stopped at Twin Lakes and headed clockwise.
My First MYOG: I’ve carried an MLD Burn (DCF) for the last couple years, and generally like it, but had a queep or two with its dimensions (specifically width) and a lack of bottom pocket. I designed and built a MYOG pack and gave it a thorough test on this trek. Not my first sewing project, but definitely my most ambitious to date. She’s kinda heavy, 17ish oz, but a solid prototype nonetheless. I used materials I had lying around already- all the webbing was harvested from 1” ratchet straps from the bed of my truck, I 3D printed strap buckles and the G-clip, I cut the shoulder strap padding out of Thermarest ZLite Scraps (which worked surprisingly well), and had some X-PAC and pocket mesh from another project on hand. Ripe with potential weight savings in future versions. No one reinvented the wheel here, we’re basically talking about a shittier, heavier, home-brew, pa’lante pack. At the end of the day, it was always more about carrying something I made. Happy to report, zero problems :)
Gear that worked: Thought the gear was pretty dialed, the pack being the only wildcard. These two items kinda stood out though. Firstly…. Bro, Peloton 97 Fleece. Can't sing its praises enough. Got it after seeing Jupiter’s review, and it’s been on me since. The fleece and I are one. Second, tried some of those new-fangled, wireless earbuds on this trip and they were a real, albeit not so UL, treat. No tangles, no yanks. I typically hike stoveless, but I carried a stove this trip, I don’t feel bad about it.
Gear that didn’t: Sleep system needs some work, or I need to pick better campsites... probably both. I cut my Thermorest Uberlite to torso length before my Superior Hiking Trail section-hike last summer. Slept perfectly well. On this hike however, I was missing those extra ounces. My knees were seemingly always hitting against the ground or hitting against each other. Found it really hard to get comfortable and sleep despite being wiped upon arrival at camp. I think I’ll be going back to a full size or at least knee length pad, though I doubt I'll cough up another small fortune for another Uberlite. Next, I’m over the Litesmith Flex Air pillow. It leaks, crinkles, rolls and slides all over...most nights I just used my puffy. Lastly, I filtered water with the Katadyn BeFree, the bag sprung several pinholes this trip and just wasn't flowing. It was pretty old though. I swapped it out for a new Sawyer Squeeze at Twin Lakes.
Gear I’m thinkin’ about: 1) Would have really dug an umbrella on this trip, particularly for the exposed areas in the East Collegiates. 2) Just found out CNOC now makes a VECTO bag with 42mm threads to fit the Katadyn filter- I’m down. 3) I'm starting to get tarp-curious. There was basically no mosquitoes out there, which is the only real reason I carry a fully enclosed shelter. I’ll do some researching and we’ll see what happens. Might be a fun next MYOG project.
Gear Sightings: Not a ton of UL kit out there. Saw a few hyperlite packs, 1 Gossamer Gear and 1 other ultralight MYOG pack. Almost everyone was hiking with 60L+ packs by the looks of it. Heard quite a few comments from older hikers about my “daypack” lol.
Wildlife Sightings: 1 deer, 1 moose, 2 sneks, Lots of birds, marmots and other small rodents.
Navigation / Guides: First and foremost, easy trail to follow. Well worn, marked, and at time of hiking- snow free. I primarily used Guthooks - Colorado Trail Guide, but carried the Colorado Trail Databook (CTDB) also- I’ve done CT trips the last 3 summers and this has always been a trusty companion. The Collegiate Loop is supposed to be part of the CT map package in Guthooks but I was unable to select it (I personally am not super happy with the app’s menu interface on iOS). Biggest gripe here is that I couldn’t see the elevation profile on the West side of the route in Guthooks- it only showed the East. Despite this, it showed all waypoints, water sources, etc. and it generally worked adequately. I just got elevation profiles from the CTDB. Hiked my last 17 miles with a dood that loaded his Continental Divide Guthook map for the West Collegiates and solved the elevation data issue. I fiddle with Gaia GPS a little here and there and loaded the NatGeo 14er maps in case I felt squirrely to bag a 14er or two while I was out there ( I didn’t ).
COVID Camping: I’ve always had a Buff buried at the bottom of my pack, but never wore it till this trip. I was personally pretty lax with pulling it up passing by folks on trail, but wore it indoors. This seemed reflected in other Thru and Loop hikers I encountered. Day Hikers were really the only people actively wearing or pulling them up on trail. People just kinda honored the 6ft bubble and that honestly made me feel safe out there. The Monarch Crest store didn’t appear to be ‘enforcing’ masks by the looks of it, but most patrons and employees wore them. I think mostly I kinda just forgot about COVID. Being out there gifted a brief reprieve from the insanity of reality.
Day 1 - Collegiate West 03 - Cottonwood Pass >> Tincup Pass Rd (15.9 miles)
Arrived at the trailhead (about 30 minutes drive West of Buena Vista) around 0840. I climbed out of the truck, proceeded to lolligag, onceover the gear, and hit trail by 0900 heading SOBO. (Note: Left my truck at the parking lot at top of Cottonwood Pass for the duration of hike with no issues.). This section is above treeline almost in its entirety. Quite a bit of elevation change as you move up and down ridgelines and across scree fields, but overall I thought it was mellower than the Databook presages. Lots of Marmots :). Wasn’t super cold, I was hiking in shorts and wore my Peloton fleece as a sun hoodie comfortably for the entire segment and most of the trek as a whole. Afternoon clouds moved in as I was making it down to Tincup Rd in the late afternoon, but nothing sinister...couple drops of rain while I set up camp (just South of Rd). I slept like crap that night because I chose a poor campsite on a slant and was slipping and sliding all over my tent. I was warm at least. I did “test laydowns” in all my campsites the remainder of the trip.
Day 2 - Collegiate West 04 - Tincup Pass Rd >> Hunt Lake (18 miles)
Bad sleep led to a later start than desired, 0830 or so. This segment starts with a mellow climb above treeline. Enjoyed my cold soaked mush with a stunning view and made my way down to where the trail rests atop an abandoned railroad. From here, the trail has a few historical placards staggered all the way to Hancock Trailhead. They talk about why trying to maintain a railroad cutting through the mountains of Colorado can be tricky....kinda neat. The sun was high and hot by the time I made it to Hancock, say 1130 or thereabouts, and I was greeted with trail magic put on by a bloke named Caveman- a cooler of frosty, fizzy beverages. Talked long trails and gear for a bit while I had my soda, leaving up a fairly busy, and thereby dusty, jeep road. The midday sun implored me to indulge a dip in an alpine lake along the way. I had planned on camping just before Boss Lake that night (end of Collegiate West 04), but Guthooks comments mentioned Verizon LTE at the dam a mere .6 miles up the trail. Wanting to check in with my family, I pressed on. Come to find out that .6 was sharply uphill...of course it was. Widowmakers around all the campsites kind of scared me off pitching there so I checked in quickly, had a snack, and walked a couple miles more to Hunt Lake to pitch camp. Sites on the South side of the lake weren’t anything spectacular. Still lots of standing-dead. Slept better, but still crappy.
Day 3 - Collegiate West 05 / Segment 15 - Hunt Lake >> US Hwy 50 (21.8 miles)
Got going by 0715, hiked 2-3 miles while breakfast reconstituted. Found an excellent breakfast view and partook my mush. Wind was there but not super cold. The climbing kept me sufficiently warm…but I debated digging out the puffy for several miles. Terrain is pretty exposed, traversing ridgeline until you reach Monarch Ski Area ( there’s one or two more historical markers along this stretch). I gathered from a previous trip report that there was ice cream and other junk food available at the pass, and definitely had some spring in my step as I trotted up to the Monarch Crest store. After my ice cream bender at the pass 2 scoops of snickers- coned not cupped, only a handful of miles remained before rounding the southern horn of the Collegiate Loop and I was now headed NOBO on Segment 15. There’s a pretty distinct difference between the West and East portions of the route- and it's readily apparent as soon as you descend South Fooses Trail, trading the massive landscapes for the forest. I was planning to make camp at South Fooses Creek that evening (lots of car camping goin on there) but started hiking and chatting with a dood slackpacking the East Collegiates after making it to Durango (Note: I quite liked the idea of “cleaning up the loop” on a CT thru-hike. Seems more pure). He made a compelling pitch for the hostel he’d been staying at the last couple nights, and I figured I could score a ride to town and satiate the deep burning desire for pizza that had been prodding at me after my ice cream high subsided. So I walked with this dood to US-50 and we followed a jeep trail from the Segment 15/14 Trailhead to the Butterfly House Hostel (2.4 mile side quest). No pizza- hostel keeper didn't feel like driving to town and I didnt feel like hitching after my first 20+ mile day of the trip. I personally wouldn't recommend the place, but I got a shower, did laundry, and slept in a bed...crappily. The hostel probably wasn't the greatest idea- I wrongly assumed there would be ‘COVID policies’ like everywhere else, but that wasn't the case. You know what they say about hindsight?
Day 4 - Segment 14 - US Hwy 50 >> Browns Creek (13.6 miles)
Got a lift in the morning from the hostel keeper to Monarch Spur RV & Campground to investigate their junk food offerings. Basic chips, chocolate, Gatorade etc. This place offers laundry and shower services for hikers, I also read conflicting things regarding tent sites. Would be a good place to send a box however, at only a mile from US-50 trailhead. The walk back to the trailhead is kinda sketchy, not much of a shoulder and the road is fairly busy so I walked through the grass and brush on the westbound side of the highway as much as possible. I thought there might be a jeep road up the hill a little ways, similar to the one I followed to the hostel, but I did not find one nor look particularly hard. Back on trail about 0930. This section doesn’t stand out in my memory very much, but it provides an opportunity for extra credit in the forms of Mt. Shavano (14,229),Tabeguache Peak (14,115) and Mt. Antero (14,269). I also encountered some travellers on horseback. I sang Toby Keith’s “Shoulda Been a Cowboy” for several miles after. It was great fun. Pulled a short day milage-wise and hiked slow as I was worried I may have overdone it the day before pushing extra miles. Camped at Browns Creek and had a decently restful sleep finally.
Day 5 - Segment 14 / 13 - Browns Creek >> South Cottonwood Creek (20.6 miles)
Resupply Day! Nice mellow hiking through some cattle grazing areas before descending to the Chalk Creek Trailhead and County Rd 162 and beginning a chill and fairly well shaded roadwalk for 3 miles to Mt Princeton Hot Springs where I’d mailed my box. The convenience store here is well stocked, not much of a ‘resupply’ point, typical gas station type offerings, but you could make due. I packed my resupply and had a burger at the Hot Springs Restaurant while the gadgets charged up. Checked in with the family and started the pretty long, exposed, climb/roadwalk to Dry Creek. Its asphalt for the first 1.5 miles and a gravely, dusty 4WD road the next 1.5. Pretty hot at midday. There’s access for a jaunt up to Mt Princeton (14,197), but it would be a lengthy side quest. Dry Creek is thankfully a misnomer as it was flowing strong and a welcome sight to this parched hiker (one of the few times I wish I had carried more than a liter of water). Filled up and chatted about 3D Printing with the only other counter-clockwise looper I met on the trip. Super cool fellow. Knocked out the last 6ish miles for the day and pitched at South Cottonwood Creek. Spotted a moose buck across the creek from my campsite.
Day 6 - Segment 13 / 12 - South Cottonwood Creek >> Pine Creek (21.1)
Started the day off with some mellow warm up miles over to Avalanche Trailhead. There is a campground located here and it was pretty full of cars and RVs. One of the patrons of said campground had painstakingly raised a Trump 2020 flag directly over the CT/CDT. (Sigh….Like, I would have been equally as annoyed if it was a Baiden flag, but somehow more surprised. Facepalm*). As I started the 2nd most grueling climb of the trip, I was welcomed to seemingly the first of the bigger views since starting the East Collegiates. Eventually I made it to the saddle on the East face of Mt Yale (a nearly 3k climb). I took a break and contemplated the side quest up Yale (14,196), a couple more miles and a couple thousand more feet up …..aaaaaand passed. Only a couple hundred feet on the other side of the saddle, I crossed paths with a mothedaughter duo that I had met the previous Summer. Small world :). At the bottom of the hill I was dumped out onto the Silver Creek Trailhead and the start of Segment 12. Guthooks comments provided a number for a pizza shop in Buena Vista that delivers to that particular trailhead. With a pizza itch yet un-scratched, I kicked off my shoes and made a call. Turns out there’s only one employee there who drives a 4x4 / AWD vehicle and thereby the sole employee able to make the drop, and guess who was answering the phone that day…. I decided once again to trudge on pizzaless. Another exposed and hot climb from the trailhead, but eventually giving way to the shade of the forest. The next 10+ miles were a mellow gain in elevation. I filled up in Morrison Creek and met a CT thru-hiker working on his “Triple-Tiara” (Note: This was the first I’d heard of this: John Muir Trail + Colorado Trail + Long Trail...I was amused). I hiked a few more miles that evening, crossing an avalanche field and some solid views, the wildfire smoke was now becoming apparent. Pitched camp near a beaver pond on Pine Creek. I watched a really lovely, quasi-smokey sunset and got some sleep.
Day 7 - Segment 12 / 11 / Collegiate West 01 - Pine Creek >> Twin Lakes (17.1 miles)
Was off again before 0700. Day started with a decent, albeit short, climb out of Pine Creek Valley. Then there’s a fairly steep descent to Clear Creek Reservoir and Campground - Segment 11. Trail is very exposed and dry for several miles after crossing county rd 390, and I should have filled up at Clear Creek. There wasn't much scenery until I reached Twin Lakes. Thought about having a dip in the water, it was pretty hot out…..I passed. I was hungry, I knew across those lakes was a paradise of sweet and salty confections galore- Twin Lakes General Store. The CTDB has a spur trail marked that goes off the CT/CDT to Willis Gulch trailhead and would involve a hitch or roadwalk East on Hwy 82 to get to Twin Lakes Village. Far too much fuss for treats. Almost 3 miles into Collegiate West 01, there’s a trail junction sign with a handwritten note indicating a 1 mile shortcut to Twin Lakes Village. Beer, junk food, …..done deal. The note rang true. I followed a jeep trail for about half a mile, crossed a river (only knee-deep and only time I had to get wet on the whole trek), and meandered through an overgrown meadow to reach the Twin Lakes store. The beer, cold. The chips, salty. The ice cream, bliss. I planned on being in and out as it was only about 1400, but you know how it goes….got to talking with my fellow hikers and one beer turned into two, snacks gave way to grilled chicken sandwiches, some hikers left, others arrived, and time escaped. Before long, rapport was built with a couple hikers and we closed down Twin Lakes General Store (17-1800, if memory serves. Note: They still let you hang out there and charge electronics after hours). Our small band of travelers grabbed a to-go beer and a homemade cookie from the inn next door, and we wandered into the meadow across Hwy 82 and all pitched camp. It was the soft, grassy camp bed of my dreams! Great view and pit privy included...at the cost of some road noise, but not bad.
Day 8 - Collegiate West 01 / 02 - Twin Lakes >> Lake Ann (15.8 miles)
Having had a sound night's sleep, a smooth move at the pit privy, and my piping hot morning coffee….I started the hardest climb of the trip- Hope Pass. Results may vary, but this thing beat me up a little, I took a few breaks. After traversing the pass and a long hike down to Sheep Gulch (saw no sheep), I started my final segment- Collegiate West 02. This section has access to La Plata Peak (14,336), Huron Peak (14,003) and some other day-hiker friendly excursions, and saw lots of them coming up Hope Pass as I descended...some of them cursing….I’m telling you, nasty beast that one. Anywho, I was originally planning to shoot over Lake Ann Pass that day as well, but the Guthook comments were a buzz about Lake Ann- “best campsite on the trail” - yada yada. It was pretty rad... great view, little sunset light show, plus you get the bulk of the pass knocked out...solid enough deal IMO. I finished up camp chores and was kinda just laying around, when one of my compatriots from Twin Lakes sauntered past my tent. Cool. Camp friend. We shot the shit a while, and I went to bed with aspirations of a Lake Ann Pass sunrise.
Day 9 - Collegiate West 02 - Lake Ann >> Cottonwood Pass (17 miles)
Slept through sunrise. But I was up, packed, and on trail by 0645. Lake Ann Pass felt like a breeze after Hope. As you head down from the pass, you leave the Collegiate Peaks Wilderness and can expect some motorcycle traffic, probably more on weekends. The few riders I encountered were very respectful and practiced good trail etiquette. My homie from camp had a very similar hiking pace as me so we ended up hiking and chit-chatting from Lake Ann Pass to Cottonwood Pass. It was cool to have company. I'm pretty used to hiking alone, going on trips alone, etc. as I don’t have friends/family with as much time or inclination to spend extended periods in the woods like I do….yet. Those of you keeping score at home, may have noticed I have yet to exorcise the pizza-thirsty demon driving my body at this point. Upon reaching Cottonwood Pass, I bid my friend good luck on the remainder of his CT thru-hike, and with great haste, drove to Buena Vista and crushed a Large Pepperoni, Sausage, Mushroom pizza…. finally.
Post-Hike Percolations: I like big views. Forest hiking is nice, but feeling like a tiny spec among giants is what draws me outside. This trip scratched that itch, but Cottonwood Pass came far too soon. I wanted more. I should have got my shit together earlier and done a CT thru-hike. This hike identified some areas I need to build my experience, but also gave me a sense of confidence in the skills I've gained so far. I noticed how ‘lost in thought’ I tend to be while walking. Had I intended on writing this trip report prior to the trip, I imagine I would have taken better notes. I wish I’d been more present, more closely aware of the sights and sounds around me, rather than spending hours adrift in my head. Anywho, loved this hike, and I'd recommend it to anyone.

2020.08.07 17:28 Irenarch [Beginner/Intermediate Guide] The 'Timeless' Fantasy: Unlearning Marketing Myth and Embracing Trends

1) Introduction: or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Wide Pants

/malefashionadvice (MFA), as a whole, has an obsession with the notion of 'timeless' style: the idea that you can build a utilitarian, trend-free wardrobe from basics that will last you forever. This obsession intensified particularly in the mid-2010s, roughly coinciding with a sharp increase in users of a particular demographic: young men with a growing interest in clothes, but often also insecurities over being seen as feminine or queer for that interest, making them ripe to be targeted and exploited by marketers looking to sell product.
Despite all the marketing hype over 'timeless' menswear and workwear, fashion from the mid-2010s (e.g. slim-fit everything, tight suits with lower-rise no-break trousers, slim-tapered raw denim and workboots, etc.) has already begun to look quite dated. As trends have moved on, a proportion of MFA's userbase has been left behind, so to speak, criticizing a lack of content on MFA catering to what they perceive as untrendy "normal men's style" almost exclusively referring to styles that were popular when they joined the sub in the mid-2010s.
In my view, a large part of this disconnect is a consequence of the language of 'timelessness' and similar marketing rhetoric designed to portray trends as untrendy and fashion as anti-fashion -- marketing language that has left many MFA users stuck in the past. To help in fixing this problem, I've written this guide to both break down the marketing of 'timelessness' and to help you build the skills you need to not get stuck in the past.

2) Killing Time: Why 'Timelessness' Is Marketing Bullshit

So how the hell did we get here? From a historical perspective, marketers trying to sell fashion trends to men often target anxieties of masculinity (e.g. "real men wear x"), appeal to older ideals of masculinity (e.g. "just like your grandpa would've worn"), and portray fashion trends as somehow anti-fashionable. For example, take these Levi's jeans ads, using imagery of manly rugged cowboys to sell trendy slim jeans (only popular for actual cowboys from the 1920s onward) and brightly-colored satin and rayon shirts (no).
The mid-2010s continued this trend, with tons of workwear and menswear brands drawing from a grab bag of marketing tropes centering on anti-trend ideas like 'timelessness' and heritage. This marketing, of course, was used to move trendy low-rise slim-tapered jeans, tight suits, and workboots made popular by Japanese nerds, illustrating a contradiction much like that of the Levi's ads: a trend marketed as anti-trend.
There are two primary reasons why this marketing actually works. Firstly, it takes advantage of a lack of historical knowledge by men about fashion, cherry-picking historical examples that align with contemporary sensibilities to convince you that you're buying into some unchanging, 'timeless' style or history. Secondly, it avoids mention of fashion or trends, both of which are often coded as feminine or queer, appealing instead of masculine-sounding utility and offering a pre-emptive defense against criticism ("I'm not into fashion, I'm into timelessness/heritage/making cost-per-wear spreadsheets!").
Let's apply critical thought and historical knowledge here: no article of clothing lasts forever, and no style remains untouched by trends. A plain t-shirt might be shorter or longer or slimmer or fuller based on trends, and will develop holes regardless of quality. A pair of reliable blue jeans might have a higher or lower rise and more or less taper, and will eventually develop holes in the crotch and thighs no matter how well you take care of them. Even the suit, the most common icon of 'timeless' style, has reliably changed with trends (article courtesy of theteenagegentleman).
What this means is that, with very few exceptions, anyone who claims a style or garment is 'timeless' is either a victim of marketing, is trying to market you something, or both.

3) In Flux: How to Move On

What does all this mean for you, your style, and your wardrobe? To provide some, well, male fashion advice, I've put together some adages, drawing on the above, that could be useful for MFA users hoping to develop their style or otherwise avoid looking dated: stop wearing polo shirts
  • Marketing must be critically examined. Marketers excel at targeting your anxieties and psychological weaknesses, when they they aren't creating those weaknesses themselves, to sell you products. If a marketing narrative seems too convenient and too validating, it needs to be critically examined to avoid falling into a potential trap.
  • There is no such thing as a 'future-proof' wardrobe. Obsessing over finding the perfect 'timeless' wardrobe is not meaningful if new trends make you look dated, or if your perfect unwashed raw denim falls apart in a year.
  • Your style can change, no matter how long you've been in the game. Especially if you're new to fashion, that initial impulse of "I could dress like this forever!" might be wrong. Even those of us who've been into fashion for a long time can get sick of an aesthetic and decide to try something new.
  • Nearly everything is a trend, and that's not a bad thing. Powdered wigs, bell-bottom pants, double monkstrap dress shoes, slim-tapered raw denim, wide pants, etc. are all trends, some of which lasted longer than others. Some of these trends may come back into fashion later, of course, but most do not -- we only tend to remember the ones that aged well.
  • Interact with trends. Whether you want to develop your personal style or just avoid standing out by looking dated, it's worth looking at stuff like designer galleries and avant-garde inspo albums with an open mind. Designers and fashionable people are often at the cutting edge of fashion, so some of these cues can filter down into 'regular' clothes.
  • Don't be afraid to jump on a trend and post it to WAYWT. While there are some places where standing out in any way might get you shit, most adults don't really care if your pants have a 7" or 9" leg opening. Fast fashion (bought in moderation) can help you cheaply experiment with these trends, although I'd recommend checking out thrift stores and second-hand shops first. Threads like WAYWT, or even showing your outfits to fashion-inclined friends, can also help give you feedback on where to go next.

2. My Girl RUNY RUNY, Flum3n RUNY, Flum3n
3. SunFlower Jayins RUNY, IVeR (Alive Knob), Jayins RUNY, IVeR (Alive Knob), Jayins

(Track #4 was previously released as an OST for the drama Where Your Eyes Linger. The only version that shows up on YT is that one.)
Producer deep-dive:
RUNY is an Ex-Idol turned singer-songwriter, previously of the group BB.Boys who debuted in 2011 with the song "We'll Be Okay" feat. G.NA. He may or may not have later re-debuted in M.Pire? Can't find confirmation of that, but process-of-elimination means it should be true. Two out of three members re-debuted in M.Pire and he's definitely not the third one. He seems to work mostly in OSTs but has also a lot of solo songs out.
Romantic Sashimi seems to be pretty popular for nugu group title track lyrics these days. He's credited for lots of idol title tracks like D-Crunch - Pierrot, and Purplebeck - Crystal Ball.
Alive Knob's career is pretty interesting. He seems to have gotten his foot in the door at Jellyfish via a track on Ravi's 2nd mixtape , then was given a chance at a Vixx album track (Navy & Shining Gold) and then graduated to VERIVERY's title track Tag Tag Tag.
Jeyins does mostly OST work. The only non-OST related idol track I could find was Minho's SM Station release I'm Home. He did also co-compose and arrange Hoppipolla's Our Song, though.
Flum3n has done nothing that I could find that wasn't RUNY related.

https://preview.redd.it/pcyz08hxb6q41.jpg?width=1080&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=18e833d8240df949d96761c4fad4a73096920796
𝙊𝙐𝙏𝙇𝘼𝙉𝘿 - Do you or did you play video games? Which were your favourites? Favourite platforms?
𝙉𝙀𝙊𝙉 𝙉𝙊𝙓 - Yes I do, I own all current gen consoles, but I prefer gaming on PC. Lately I’ve been going back to Division 2…
𝙎𝙏𝙄𝙇𝙕 - Been playing video games my whole life. Favourite system growing up was the Sega Genesis. Currently and since 2009.... PC gaming.
𝙎𝙐𝙉𝙂𝙇𝘼𝙎𝙎𝙀𝙎 𝙆𝙄𝘿 - My first memory of gaming was playing kung fu on a ZX Spectrum. I think the game loaded on tape. I remember swearing I could see the faces on these 8 bit blocks and saying to my friend ‘do you think graphics will ever get better than this?’ I couldn’t have imagined what was to come. I’m a huge fan of the Half Life series, Red Dead, GTA (obviously the iconic Vice City). I’m a fiend for first-person shooters, and loved a game that came out on the original Xbox called ‘Black’ which had destructive environments and a score by Michael Giacchino. It was so filmic. Battlefield One is insanely good. I also loved the old PC games like Day Of The Tentacle. It was a classic! I remember it came on thirteen 3.5 inch floppy disks - an outlandish 18mb! I love gaming on my phone now too. As well as the revival in retro style gamers, some AAA titles are now insane on the phone. I’m playing Call of Duty on my Samsung and the graphics are not much different from Black Ops on the first Xbox.
𝙊𝙐𝙏𝙇𝘼𝙉𝘿 - How would you best describe the current Synthwave/ Retrowave genre?
𝙈𝙄𝘾𝙃𝘼𝙀𝙇 𝙊𝘼𝙆𝙇𝙀𝙔 - 1980s inspired music, art and visuals created with modern technology to bring it up to date with the new age. (In fact, Oakley's music has been described as, “Retro sounding music, a love letter to 1980’s synth-pop. Melancholic postcards from the heart, wrapped up in synthesizers and drum machines”. Quite apt)
𝙉𝙀𝙊𝙉 𝙉𝙊𝙓 - Synthwave for me it’s a soundtrack of past made in future!
𝙊𝙐𝙏𝙇𝘼𝙉𝘿 - How did you get into Synthwave/ Retrowave?
𝙇𝙊𝙎𝙏 𝙊𝙐𝙏𝙍𝙄𝘿𝙀𝙍 - My brother, who does all our artwork, told me about the film Drive, so that was a gateway (like it is for many people). Following that, I went down the rabbit hole of the artists who were part of that soundtrack and my brother then linked me to artists like Miami Nights 1984. So I guess I can say my brother was a big reason why I got into this scene.
𝙊𝙐𝙏𝙇𝘼𝙉𝘿 - What inspired the track you submitted for the Retro Drive game?
𝙉𝙀𝙒 𝘼𝙍𝘾𝘼𝘿𝙀𝙎 - We wanted something quite energetic and well paced. Gave a really “driving” beat and feel.
𝙇𝙊𝙎𝙏 𝙊𝙐𝙏𝙍𝙄𝘿𝙀𝙍 - I’m a big fan of progressive trance like Sasha, John Digweed and Chicane, so the song was heavily inspired by these types of artists. I’d also recently came back from Tokyo when the first ideas of that track were formed and that definitely played a part. Alongside that, I wanted to incorporate the softer sounds and chords found in Chillwave (Airglow, Admo etc.)
𝙊𝙐𝙏𝙇𝘼𝙉𝘿 - If you could be a character in a video game, who/ what would you be?
𝙁𝘼𝙉𝙏𝙊𝙈 '87 - If I could be a character in any video game I would probably be Nathan Drake from uncharted. He’s smart, he kicks ass, he gets to travel, and he’s just a genuinely decent guy.
𝙃𝙄𝙂𝙃𝙒𝘼𝙔 𝙎𝙐𝙋𝙀𝙍𝙎𝙏𝘼𝙍 - Probably Roger Wilco. Clumsy but likeable.
𝙇𝙊𝙎𝙏 𝙊𝙐𝙏𝙍𝙄𝘿𝙀𝙍 - Probably Kyle Katarn from the Dark Forces games. He has a killer beard and also becomes a Jedi. That’d be pretty fun.
𝙈𝙄𝘾𝙃𝘼𝙀𝙇 𝙊𝘼𝙆𝙇𝙀𝙔 - Definitely Tommy Vercetti from GTA Vice City.
𝙉𝙀𝙊𝙉 𝙉𝙊𝙓 - I would be a Jon “Neon” Nox, A race car driver 📷;)
𝙉𝙀𝙒 𝘼𝙍𝘾𝘼𝘿𝙀𝙎 - Adam - Probably Solid Snake or Joel from the last of us. Both are badass. Dean would be jigglypuff from Pokemon go.
𝙊𝙐𝙏𝙇𝘼𝙉𝘿 - If you could pick ANY one of your tracks that encapsulates your sound, and defines you best, which would it be?
𝙉𝙀𝙊𝙉 𝙉𝙊𝙓 - Oh that’s a hard one. I think Fahrenheit is one of those tracks where I really wanted to capture that mix between old and new sounds into one track. I really enjoyed making that track.
𝙎𝙏𝙄𝙇𝙕 - Just one? Well I would have to say my track “Awake” from the album titled Sentient. So much fun making that track and just has the style and sound I’ve always wanted to create. Very proud of that track. Also, “The Day I Lost You“ is another one. Had to include that one.
𝙊𝙐𝙏𝙇𝘼𝙉𝘿 - If you were asked to score a game soundtrack, what type of game would it be?
𝙎𝙐𝙉𝙂𝙇𝘼𝙎𝙎𝙀𝙎 𝙆𝙄𝘿 - Well before starting Sunglasses Kid, I was very into writing orchestral style scores. I think my dream project would probably be a hardcore first person shooter, potentially with a retro vibe. Something like Far Cry Blood Dragon would be fun. Alternatively, it could be super fun to do something more chilled, like if a Simms game set in the 80s or 90s. Lots of incidental New Jack Swing and Fresh Prince vibes whilst you build your dream L.A apartment.
𝙊𝙐𝙏𝙇𝘼𝙉𝘿 - What synths do you use, modern digital or retro analogue?
𝙎𝙐𝙉𝙂𝙇𝘼𝙎𝙎𝙀𝙎 𝙆𝙄𝘿 - I’m entirely in the box. No hardware. My work-horses are the Korg Polysix, Wavestation and M1. I use the UVI Vintage Legends collection. And two new additions I’m loving are Native Instruments Analog Dreams (Kontakt), and Super 8 (Reaktor).
𝙃𝙄𝙂𝙃𝙒𝘼𝙔 𝙎𝙐𝙋𝙀𝙍𝙎𝙏𝘼𝙍 - A blend of both. I love modern and vintage digital, got a fair share of analogues too. From the software side - Korg Legacy, Omnisphere, RePro 5 and 1. From the analogue - Model D, Juno 106, Oberheim Matrix.
𝙉𝙀𝙒 𝘼𝙍𝘾𝘼𝘿𝙀𝙎 - Mainly modern digital! Easier and more practical to incorporate most of the sounds we love. Plus we don’t have tonnes of space for hardware laying about!
𝙊𝙐𝙏𝙇𝘼𝙉𝘿 - Which Synthwave/ Retrowave artist would you most like to collaborate on a track with?
𝙁𝘼𝙉𝙏𝙊𝙈 '87 - If I could collaborate with any Retrowave artist it would definitely be Power Glove. I love their sound and I bet I could learn a lot from them in the process.
𝙈𝙄𝘾𝙃𝘼𝙀𝙇 𝙊𝘼𝙆𝙇𝙀𝙔 - My dream collaboration was with Dana Jean Phoenix, which I was lucky enough to get to do on my last album. It’s a hard one because I sing and produce my own music but I love Kalax’s music and think we would make a great track together...
𝙊𝙐𝙏𝙇𝘼𝙉𝘿 - Besides being a part of Retro Drive, and the Soundtrack by Outland Recordings, any other exciting plans for the year?
𝙎𝙐𝙉𝙂𝙇𝘼𝙎𝙎𝙀𝙎 𝙆𝙄𝘿 - I’ll releasing my second album, Sophomore which features collabs with Megan McDuffee Music , Jay Diggs, IVERSEN, Ollie Wride and more.
𝙈𝙄𝘾𝙃𝘼𝙀𝙇 𝙊𝘼𝙆𝙇𝙀𝙔 - I’m writing again and looking forward to hopefully releasing a new album later in the year if all goes well.
𝙉𝙀𝙊𝙉 𝙉𝙊𝙓 - This year is gonna be be big for me because I finally finish my new album that will be releasing later this year!
𝙊𝙐𝙏𝙇𝘼𝙉𝘿 - Do you have a favourite retro super car?
𝙈𝙄𝘾𝙃𝘼𝙀𝙇 𝙊𝘼𝙆𝙇𝙀𝙔 - Easily Crockett’s black Ferrari Daytona Spyder from Season 1 of Miami Vice. Such a beautiful car.
𝙊𝙐𝙏𝙇𝘼𝙉𝘿 - Who would win a midnight street race? Adam or Dean?
𝙉𝙀𝙒 𝘼𝙍𝘾𝘼𝘿𝙀𝙎 - Dean: Probably Adam but only cause I’d go easy on him. 📷;) Adam: you know it’s true. I’m pretty solid behind the wheel. I seldom lose.

2020.02.13 22:05 lalalans_ Open Letter to cdvd. Happy Valentines Day!!

Hiii cdvd,
First off, I would just like to say, I cant even fathom how the fuck we became like this. To think we started off like any other poor motherfucker on reddit finding people to talk to and then suddenly we became each others constants. We ditched that dreaded sub and are now just focusing on each other. Not going to lie though, shit wasnt easy, it wasnt a smooth ride at all but regardless of any bumps we may have come across both in the past and in the future, heres hoping we can still push through with our relationship.
It all started late august huh? It just started out as some friendly banter between us about you dissing the shit I talked about in my post. Fast forwarding the reddit chat banter, we eventually moved to telegram which fuck man, apparently you ghosted me a couple of months back. So i came clean since, at that time i thought for sure it was over but no, you just laughed it off and it eventually became an inside joke. The connection was real, it was strong, like we could withstand anything, we would talk everyday for hours on end, sharing life stories, discussing about random stuff, our exes, our parents, our favorite shit and so on. The talks would never be boring and seems like we never run out of things to talk about noh? this would be the part where people would say but the time came when it all changed blah blah, but fortunately for us that wasnt the case. To this day we still talk everyday, there are still so many things we talk about and if anything we became even closer now. I mean we are technically together now :).
So yeah, a couple of weeks past since we started talking, the connection was so strong that I developed feelings for you and luckily for me the feeling was mutual. I dont really know how it happened but yeah, it just happened. It happened so fast that we are approaching our freaking our 4th month officially being together. People say we are prolly crazy doing this LDR thing, heck we havent even met personally yet but talking to you for hours and hours everyday especially on our "date days" every week where we would talk non fucking stop (mind you I think our record was 16 hours straight) lol, that is absurd, but shit we would have so much fun and I myself dont even freakin mind the time at some points in the day.
There have been times though that we would question the status of our relationship, like is this even real? Are you real? am I real? into that extent, but gradually it all faded away, i mean atleast for me. Ikaw jan, you still have psychoish tendencies, A.K.A that LanceMaciatto incident lol. I myself have psycho tendencies na rin, pucha nakakahawa ata haha!. Anyway we have made a lot of promises to each other and bit by bit they are coming true, heck may plane ticket na ko to you!! People would say we are out of our minds with this relationship not meeting each other and shit but who the fuck cares. They dont really know what we go through each and everyday, The moments we share day by day, are absolutely authentic and as real as it gets. I legit want a life with you and I hope you feel the same as well. The connection is so deep kasi e noh? puta you feel like my soulmate na e.
Side note though, alam mo ba why i'm writing this right now? Because i feel like each time i write something to you, like yung hand written letters ko sayo, sometimes i feel like may mga things ako na naleleft out, nakakalimutan so this way mas focused ako plus you wont have to deal with my shit hand writing na din. Pero knowing you, youd still prefer written notes haha! SOON.
Anyway back to what I was saying, this journey of ours has been surreal. I dont really want to sound like a broken record right now kasi I have told you this over and over already pero, totoo eh, every time i hear your voice or pag kachat kita, no matter how shit of a day im having, you always manage to calm me down, to lift up my mood and shit and it only takes your high pitched hiiiiiiii at the start of our call. Fuck noh? Pero what gets me is my admiration for you, not just the love that i feel for you, its how you managed to live your life, how you worked hard and strived to get where you are right now, despite all the things that happened to you over the past years. I just want to let you know, whatever happens to us I will always be here for you, and thats a promise, ill be your person regardless no strings attached and i will always love you unconditionally.
With that being said, tangina ang haba na ata haha parang grade 12 essay na to 10000 words na worth 45% of my final grade sayo. Alam mo ba na mga kalokohan natin is so fun puta i remember the last date day we had yung pinapahuli mo sakin ung call mo hahaha puta tawang tawa ako dun e pero i played it cool hahaha! yan inamin ko na. Kala ko ako lang yung loko loko dito sa relationship natin e.
On a more serious note, things are happening so fast, so fast that its actually kind of scary, but knowing you will be there with me every step of the way kind of stirs me away from the fear. I didnt have the slightest idea of settling down anytime soon but when I met you and now that we are so sure about each other, im definite that you are the one I want to marry. Heck, its all going to fall into place sa September. You really made such a huge impact in my life in such a short amount of time that its incomprehensible to me. I cant explain it, no matter how hard I think about it, it just happened, its here, and its still happening to this day, and I think its time to just let it happen and embrace the feelings that we have for each other no matter how logic defies this relationship, no matter how people may view us, no matter how long the distance is, we can't really do anything about it at this point. We both feel it, its real, we are inlove with each other, deeply, so deep that we are already planning our future together, of you moving here, of us settling down and buying our own place and just plainly enjoying each others company for the rest of our lives.
For that I have no regrets, regardless of how we met, regardless of how we started the conversation, you cant really write this shit up, you cant make it up, its not depicted in any movie or screenplay. The journey of how we met and how deep our connection is, is just so out of the ordinary. I am not complaining at all though im happy and so content sayo and I will stay faithful and treat you with respect (syempre theres exceptions lol!)
But lam mo cdvd1212, this is kind of weird kasi never in my life had I thought about being in a long distance relationship after what happened with Shayne, I always thought, maybe she was right, maybe I shouldnt have took it personally, that it would just not work out in the end. But then look at us right now, 1000000 miles away, 14 hour flight away and we are still kicking it. We truly are clicking noh? Kasi for sure, anyone of us couldve easily gave up at any point in this relationship but we chose to hold on, that should mean na like we both believe theres something there diba? na worth holding on to?
Not going to lie though, I didnt think we would last this long. lol aminin mo, ikaw rin? hahahaha! But here we are just inching and inching away to our lives together. (God damn it everytime i think of this, i get the mafakin chills) but anyway yeah akala ko d tayo magtatagal tbh, but then one thing lead to another, now I have a plane ticket, we made plans na and shit its all falling into place. Wait, sidenote, Ive already mentioned this but I really like your mom, she is so freakin cool talaga lol. Wala lang random. Anyway, yeah kasi yung distance gets really hard tas yung time zone difference is just wtf are we even doing? But yo, it is all worth it naman. Plus fuck mga EHM EHL sessions natin is soooo fun, despite me having 300 ping lol, Cant wait to own fools with you pag wala nang delay, Guin and Pharsa <3 hahahaha.
Another thing I want to mention pala, is how you changed my mind set. After my move, I was always alone in everything kasi new life diba? I was not one to rely on other people, I was always in the mind set of I can freakin do life without this person and this person. I dont know if alam mo na to pero, growing up kasi, I learned not to rely on anybody, kasi thats how I was raised. Like, everytime I try to tell my folks na may problema ako I felt na they treat it like such a hassle so ever since then I kept all my shit to myself. Like for example, if I have a question about school, theyd always say "bat dka kasi nakikinig? kailangan mo ba ng tutor"? ganun sila lagi e, Basta andami pang examples but I dont really want to get into it. Anyway my point is, ever since you came into my life, everything changed, like you make me feel like the home I never had, you made me feel that yo maybe relying on a person isnt too bad after all... You listen to my shit despite not knowing my field, you share similar stories, you extend your patience and in a sense sympathy?? to what I say. Its just felt different, it felt nice and warm. Its a feeling I wasnt used lang, but it is a feeling that I can get used to :).
I mean I guess its time to close na siguro to haha. Mahal na mahal kita Ms. cdvd lol. Happy valentines day po :) thanks for staying despite all my shit, I know our setup is not perfect but the connection feels like it is. What more sa sept. where we can be in each others lifes for a long time na right? Thank you sa lahat lahat and the shit that will come pa loveyy. I love you so much and ill see you in september. Sorry for this long ass message, but I mean you said you liked long messages diba? so i mean I think this is the longest message I sent this far na haha!. have fun reading? I guess and yeah i love you so much.

The talks would never be boring and seems like we never run out of things to talk about noh? this would be the part where people would say but the time came when it all changed blah blah, but fortunately for us that wasnt the case. To this day we still talk everyday, there are still so many things we talk about and if anything we became even closer now. I mean we are technically together now :).
So yeah, a couple of weeks past since we started talking, the connection was so strong that I developed feelings for you and luckily for me the feeling was mutual. I dont really know how it happened but yeah, it just happened. It happened so fast that we are approaching our freaking our 4th month officially being together. People say we are prolly crazy doing this LDR thing, heck we havent even met personally yet but talking to you for hours and hours everyday especially on our "date days" every week where we would talk non fucking stop (mind you I think our record was 16 hours straight) lol, that is absurd, but shit we would have so much fun and I myself dont even freakin mind the time at some points in the day.
There have been times though that we would question the status of our relationship, like is this even real? Are you real? am I real? into that extent, but gradually it all faded away, i mean atleast for me. Ikaw jan, you still have psychoish tendencies, A.K.A that LanceMaciatto incident lol. I myself have psycho tendencies na rin, pucha nakakahawa ata haha!. Anyway we have made a lot of promises to each other and bit by bit they are coming true, heck may plane ticket na ko to you!! People would say we are out of our minds with this relationship not meeting each other and shit but who the fuck cares. They dont really know what we go through each and everyday, The moments we share day by day, are absolutely authentic and as real as it gets. I legit want a life with you and I hope you feel the same as well. The connection is so deep kasi e noh? puta you feel like my soulmate na e.
Side note though, alam mo ba why i'm writing this right now? Because i feel like each time i write something to you, like yung hand written letters ko sayo, sometimes i feel like may mga things ako na naleleft out, nakakalimutan so this way mas focused ako plus you wont have to deal with my shit hand writing na din. Pero knowing you, youd still prefer written notes haha! SOON.
Anyway back to what I was saying, this journey of ours has been surreal. I dont really want to sound like a broken record right now kasi I have told you this over and over already pero, totoo eh, every time i hear your voice or pag kachat kita, no matter how shit of a day im having, you always manage to calm me down, to lift up my mood and shit and it only takes your high pitched hiiiiiiii at the start of our call. Fuck noh? Pero what gets me is my admiration for you, not just the love that i feel for you, its how you managed to live your life, how you worked hard and strived to get where you are right now, despite all the things that happened to you over the past years. I just want to let you know, whatever happens to us I will always be here for you, and thats a promise, ill be your person regardless no strings attached and i will always love you unconditionally.
With that being said, tangina ang haba na ata haha parang grade 12 essay na to 10000 words na worth 45% of my final grade sayo. Alam mo ba na mga kalokohan natin is so fun puta i remember the last date day we had yung pinapahuli mo sakin ung call mo hahaha puta tawang tawa ako dun e pero i played it cool hahaha! yan inamin ko na. Kala ko ako lang yung loko loko dito sa relationship natin e.
On a more serious note, things are happening so fast, so fast that its actually kind of scary, but knowing you will be there with me every step of the way kind of stirs me away from the fear. I didnt have the slightest idea of settling down anytime soon but when I met you and now that we are so sure about each other, im definite that you are the one I want to marry. Heck, its all going to fall into place sa September. You really made such a huge impact in my life in such a short amount of time that its incomprehensible to me. I cant explain it, no matter how hard I think about it, it just happened, its here, and its still happening to this day, and I think its time to just let it happen and embrace the feelings that we have for each other no matter how logic defies this relationship, no matter how people may view us, no matter how long the distance is, we can't really do anything about it at this point. We both feel it, its real, we are inlove with each other, deeply, so deep that we are already planning our future together, of you moving here, of us settling down and buying our own place and just plainly enjoying each others company for the rest of our lives.
For that I have no regrets, regardless of how we met, regardless of how we started the conversation, you cant really write this shit up, you cant make it up, its not depicted in any movie or screenplay. The journey of how we met and how deep our connection is, is just so out of the ordinary. I am not complaining at all though im happy and so content sayo and I will stay faithful and treat you with respect (syempre theres exceptions lol!)
But lam mo cdvd1212, this is kind of weird kasi never in my life had I thought about being in a long distance relationship after what happened with Shayne, I always thought, maybe she was right, maybe I shouldnt have took it personally, that it would just not work out in the end. But then look at us right now, 1000000 miles away, 14 hour flight away and we are still kicking it. We truly are clicking noh? Kasi for sure, anyone of us couldve easily gave up at any point in this relationship but we chose to hold on, that should mean na like we both believe theres something there diba? na worth holding on to?
Not going to lie though, I didnt think we would last this long. lol aminin mo, ikaw rin? hahahaha! But here we are just inching and inching away to our lives together. (God damn it everytime i think of this, i get the mafakin chills) but anyway yeah akala ko d tayo magtatagal tbh, but then one thing lead to another, now I have a plane ticket, we made plans na and shit its all falling into place. Wait, sidenote, Ive already mentioned this but I really like your mom, she is so freakin cool talaga lol. Wala lang random. Anyway, yeah kasi yung distance gets really hard tas yung time zone difference is just wtf are we even doing? But yo, it is all worth it naman. Plus fuck mga EHM EHL sessions natin is soooo fun, despite me having 300 ping lol, Cant wait to own fools with you pag wala nang delay, Guin and Pharsa <3 hahahaha.
Another thing I want to mention pala, is how you changed my mind set. After my move, I was always alone in everything kasi new life diba? I was not one to rely on other people, I was always in the mind set of I can freakin do life without this person and this person. I dont know if alam mo na to pero, growing up kasi, I learned not to rely on anybody, kasi thats how I was raised. Like, everytime I try to tell my folks na may problema ako I felt na they treat it like such a hassle so ever since then I kept all my shit to myself. Like for example, if I have a question about school, theyd always say "bat dka kasi nakikinig? kailangan mo ba ng tutor"? ganun sila lagi e, Basta andami pang examples but I dont really want to get into it. Anyway my point is, ever since you came into my life, everything changed, like you make me feel like the home I never had, you made me feel that yo maybe relying on a person isnt too bad after all... You listen to my shit despite not knowing my field, you share similar stories, you extend your patience and in a sense sympathy?? to what I say. Its just felt different, it felt nice and warm. Its a feeling I wasnt used lang, but it is a feeling that I can get used to :).
I mean I guess its time to close na siguro to haha. Mahal na mahal kita Ms. cdvd lol. Happy valentines day po :) thanks for staying despite all my shit, I know our setup is not perfect but the connection feels like it is. What more sa sept. where we can be in each others lifes for a long time na right? Thank you sa lahat lahat and the shit that will come pa loveyy. I love you so much and ill see you in september. Sorry for this long ass message, but I mean you said you liked long messages diba? so i mean I think this is the longest message I sent this far na haha!. have fun reading? I guess and yeah i love you so much.

No Moon
“But you promised.” Kristin’s words lilt down into the type of disappointment that congeals the air between us. She is holding the freshly opened second bottle of wine at her side and I feel like such an asshole. I’d promised her I wouldn’t work this weekend, our first weekend away as a couple in six years, but one email from my boss and my spine turns to cotton. I worked so hard to get this job. I dogged that law firm for years and years and now that I was finally a clerk I tested the resolve of Kristin’s support on a weekly basis. “We haven’t even been here four hours,” she continued, shoulders drooping, “and you’re going to run off and work already? Jesus, I thought you’d at least wait till tomorrow before you, before you...”
“Before I did my job?” I finished her sentence, making everything worse the way that only my dumb mouth can. “You. Promised.” Her lips close into a tightly clenched, thin line and I know she’s right. I promised, and now I’m breaking the promise. I change tactics.
“It’s just some super simple filing stuff, Kristin. I swear. I can knock it out after you go to bed and then it’s done.” I know there’s not really anything I can say here that would actually let me off the hook, this is just a plank I’m going to have to walk so I say what I should have said first. “I’m sorry. I’m really sorry. I know this is shitty of me, and I don’t even want to do it, but I don’t get to say No right now. Not to my boss.” Kristin isn’t looking at me anymore but she also isn’t saying anything and I wonder if I should continue, if I should say more, but she finally responds after what feels like years of silence.
“Just...just do what you have to do.” She sounds tired, the type of tired that says all the fight has gone out of this one and it breaks my heart when she turns around begins to walk back toward the sliding plate glass doors leading into the house. The house we rented for our weekend away. The cycling hum of the cicadas seems to pick up, as if it felt the need to fill the conversational void that just rolled into town, so I don’t hear Kristin the first time and have to ask her to turn around and repeat herself. “I said, I’m going to shower and go to bed now. Just get your work done and we can pick our vacation back up tomorrow morning.”
“I will.” My mouth hangs open, just in case I think of some other magic phrase I can tag on to make everything just a little better but the best I can manage is, “Thank you.” She purses her lips, shrugs, and as the faint last rays of sunlight steal traces through her hair Kristin turns around and resumes her walk to the house. Her cork sandals slap and scrape agains the patio brick and as she reaches the door, sliding it open on it’s loud, whooshing tracks, she offers one more instruction.
“Just please don’t wake me when you come to bed,” and she is inside. Behind me a gust of wind tugs at the tall hedge that encircles the property and beyond that, in the pond that the house listing falsely advertised as a lake, I hear a small splash. Water lapps at the shoreline, the cicadas are just getting warmed up, and the whisper of cars two miles away on I-80 all forcibly remind me that I am very very far from home. Dusk finally loosens its grip on the soft amber and pastel sky that you only get to see way out here in the country and I don’t even notice just how dark its gotten until Kristin flips on the upstairs bedroom light and the backyard gets washed in its still, yellow haze. It is very dark out. There is no moon out tonight.
Normally, when I’m doing this kind of work, I take over an entire table with folders of papers, photos, affidavits, and any other manor of documentation, but tonight all I have is my laptop and that’s why this won’t actually be able to “knock this out” in a reasonable manor of time. I’ll get it done, I know that, but it’s going to be a pain in the ass and it’s going to take forever. I say a quick swear for my boss, count my blessings, and get to work.
Sometime around 10:30 I hear the shower turn off upstairs and Kristin’s not-so-sober footsteps rap against the hardwood floors until the bedroom door closes and the house becomes a mausoleum. I keep a single lamp on in the corner, half lit, and work away on the couch vacillating between resting my computer on my legs and on the coffee table in front of me. It’s too low and I have to arch my back in a way that is sure to be coaxing a mighty hump in my spine but it keeps me awake while my body finishes metabolizing the last of the wine in my otherwise empty stomach. My boss is still awake, I get the occasional update or request for a specific form and it feels even less like a vacation now, more like a severely handicapped day at the office where instead of free coffee and bagels I am incentivized with bleeding corneas and a lack of sex. The night ticks on.
It’s twelve past midnight. No end in sight for the duties at hand, but I’m stumbling into either a second wind or a fugue state and Kristin is so deeply asleep that the guilt of working on our vacation fades substantially. This doesn’t feel so wrong, this doesn’t feel any different than staying awake to read while your partner is sawing logs on the bed next to you. When Kristin wakes up and this is all done all it will have actually cost me is a night of sleep and the wrecking ball pangs of stress that prompted this whole episode will be little more than a distant memory, a faint creak in the floorboards upstairs, a-
Tink
What the fuck was that? I set my laptop on the coffee table and stand up. The lack of blood in my ass becomes annoyingly obvious and my knees ache as they contort back into place, not clicking back into place but not far from it. I sit down too much. I need to start exercising. What the fuck was that?
I look over at the sliding glass doors, ready to see a spiderweb of cracking glass but when I lift my head I am met with opaque black planes standing sentry on the far wall of the room and the lamp light transmutes them from windows to mirrors where I stare back at myself. Like an idiot. There is too much light in here, and too little out there. There’s no moon. I walk over to the door, cup my hands around my face, and peer out. Faint outlines of the patio furniture and what I know is the hedge but wouldn’t be able to guess at if I had not already seen it in proper daylight ghost themselves against my own stubborn reflection. I stare harder, willing my pupils to dilate and reveal more of the backyard but the longer I stare the less I see. The patio’s spectral vigils diffuse slowly into the black backdrop of my own reflection and I turn my attention instead back to the room behind me. The lamp and its harsh blue led bulbs put cigarettes out in my eyes and when I squeeze my eyelids shut I hear it again.
Tink.
It takes a fraction of a second to whip my head and I’m surprised I don’t sever my spine with the fervor because what I just heard, I am sure of it now, was something small and hard clacking against the glass of the sliding door. I don’t want to take my eyes off the backyard, regardless of the fact that none of it is actually visible to me, but I do and I find the locking latch on the door. It makes a Richter triggering thump when it snaps into a locking position but when that same sound fails to echo in the house or shake any china from the kitchen shelves I know I’m being dramatic. Silence rings from the glass doors, mocks me, and when I sit back down at my laptop I am a humbled man.
It’s just the house settling, cool night air.
Professor Me is probably right and I pull my laptop back onto my knees. Two new emails from my boss. The date a witness met with a composite artist differs on two accounts and the make and model of a car they claim to have seen has changed since their original statement. I start searching through my computer for the old statements and as I do the lamp in the corner turns to daggers again and the light stirs a deep and misplaced agitation in me. I set my laptop back on the table like I want the lamp to see and I get up and walk across to the corner of the room to switch it off. A big circular bakelite knob sits halfway up its stalk, a stark relic against the viciously modern led bulbs that seem to scream instead of glow. Something old, Something new, Something screaming, Something bl-
Tink
My hand, still hovering the better part of an inch from the worn brown lamp switch, freezes. There is a jagged ringing still hanging in my ears as the glass sings lightly. One liquid movement of my neck, a near gyroscopic separation from the rest of my body, and I was in a staredown with the glass doors. My fingers closed down, looking for a bakelite knob that was still too far away and when they find nothing my arm spasms and jerks forward. The lamp rocks on it’s small base as my hand knocks into it but I still do not take my eyes off the door. I finally manage to wrap my fingers around the thin, teetering post of the lamp aided by my reflection and here, I freeze again. If there is something- no, someone, outside then right now they can see me but I cannot see them. I should switch off the light. I should expose them, I could even chase them. I could...I could what?
The options never get the chance to be laid out on the table because now I am too afraid to turn the big, round knob on the lamp, the knob that will cut the current going to one harsh blue led bulb that now feels safe. Safer than the dark, anyway. If I switch off that light and my reflection is replaced with the silhouette of, I’m not sure, what would I do? The door is locked, Kristin is asleep, and if there is a knife in the kitchen I’m positive that I couldn’t find it on the first guess; but for now, as long as this light is on, the moment is stuck in suspended animation and there is no first move to be made. Click I switch off the light. The ghosts of the patio furniture are full-body apparitions now, stoney and cold, and I wait. I wait for movement, for another sound, for anything aside from nothing but nothing is all that happens and I take increasingly ginger steps across the matted blue carpet towards the door.
I log the silence for a moment, glance back out at the stillen backyard, and then back to the room. All I can see is my laptop and the achingly loud light that flows from the screen and embosses the sofa. I contemplate turning the lamp back on, because I suddenly do not like how dark this all feels, and it must be an extension of that feeling that causes me so much unease at turning my back to the glass door. I have to turn back around, it is not a feeling of being watched but a feeling of not being able to watch.
The backyard is unchanged when I do but that is not comfort, cold or otherwise, so I cup my hands around my eyes once more and press them to the glass. My breath fogs the window on the first glance and I have to wipe it away with my sleeve and return, lungs tightened. This close to the door, I can hear the faint hum of the cicadas pelting against the siding. The patio furniture looks frigid in the starlight, there is no moon, and leaves furrowed in the hedgerow seem to flirt with movement but it is only the soreness in my eyes stretching and pinching the world around me. I lean away from the window, my muscles are tired in a way that lets me know they will be sore later and I place my hands on the small of my back to crack it when I hear it again.
Tink.
The noise easily rises above the sound of my spine adjusting and before I can think otherwise I’m back against the window looking outside. I exhale and steel my lungs before pressing my face to the glass but as soon as I do have to inhale with a sharp and almost wheezing gasp because Something was moving in the hedge. Something was in the hedge, or moving through it. Something was Out There. Primally, I step back from the plate glass and even now, most of a second later, the hedge flutters with the waining last signs of its disturbance. As if it is shivering.
Thunk.
I work the latch upright and pull the door aside. It’s loud enough to wake Kristin but I do not think it will wake Kristin and I do not think anything else either because tonight spirits and hidden frustration have laid her mind in a grave so deep that no noise from this world could breach the packed soil and reach her.
The symphony of cicadas returns to full, deafening volume and the door is still sliding open but it is lost in their chorus, as is the soft scraping of my foot stepping on the patio brick and the rushed cadence of my heart sounding alarm bells in my chest. I can’t hear it, but I can feel dried weeds flaking to crumbs under my feet the closer I get to the hedge.
I walk slowly, cautiously. I don’t know how long it takes me to get to the hedge but I know I take my time and stop at the table to nearly turn back. This is stupid, I could be hearing nothing more than junebugs flying stupidly against the window, tapping the glass with their mindless skulls that they keep on the outside of their fucking heads and simply flying away. Whether or not that is what I think I reach the reach the hedge, but for a very long time I only stand and listen. Cicadas. My hand forms a blade again and I slip it into the knotted billow of twigs and spines that make up its branches and tear it apart, slowly and surgically, when the splash shakes my arms away.
I take several full steps back, giving the anonymous author of this splash a wide birth, and I am forgetting to breathe. Swiftly, I cross back to the hedge and tear at it again, less carefully this time, and beyond it the pond is a swirling black void that would sooner swallow the moonless night sky than betray what ripples still might be racing across its surface. I pull more and as I do I can see the full shape of the shore, stretching left and right into the darkness and at night this pond does feel like a lake. It feels endless and impossibly deep, as if the stars glinting on its veneer were closer to getting wet than the silt of its deepest trenches were to turning to dust.
That thing happens, like when you stare into a campfire or a babbling brook and all the interconnected parts of your brain loose their fingers from one another leaving you driftless. That thing happens. The pulsing whir of the cicadas dissolves to background static, faint and lulling, and then it is gone entirely. My hypnosis deepens until even the gentle lapping of the water on its shore, rolling and breaking, dips below the threshold of my attention. The stillness reveals something unsettling, something hard to place but as I do place it the trance breaks like a champagne flute on concrete. This is a pond. Ponds don’t have tides. That water should be completely still.
My breathing becomes a shiver and as I listen closer, more nervously, I am hearing more than water beating the shore. I am hearing movement. Movement, out in the water, not like something was swimming but like something was gliding. Gliding through the glossy black of the pond with a horrifying stealth that left very little wake and even less sound. In the wrenching guts of my imagination I saw a black eel, slicing through the water with blood-red, lidless eyes. Working overtime, my mind superimposed the thought onto the dark of the water like it was filling in blanks, but I do not get a chance to truly see that because now I am hearing more.
Gurgling, like steel bolts in a wooden chest sliding and scraping against each other, rose to a rasp out in the veil of the night. My eyes bloomed and the hairs on the back of my neck stood with such aggression that it felt they would tear themselves from my flesh and fall to the ground, ripped tissue still clinging to their roots. The rasp became a note and the note gurgled again, like it was clawing its way up whatever terrible throat was freeing it, grasping for purchase against a bloodied esophagus and finally spilling forth in a wash of phlegm and very audible agony. The note drifted as it labored on with the sounds of vocal cords that were not muscle, but were in fact rusted chains, and it began to search, to try. It reached upward and fell again before it twisted and folded itself into what was clearly, indistinguishably, inarguably, a vowel.
“Ahhhhh.” The voice had attempted, before trailing off as if it had run out of breath. My jaw snaps open as I leap back and I am sure a yelp, some cry of panic, will escape but I am silent and not by choice. I cannot yet scream. The voice, if it is a voice, tries again, “Ahhhhhh, Ahhhhh,” becoming clearer now, less labored and, to my horror, somewhat human. “Ah, Ah, Ah.” It is quicker now, louder, and much more human. I don’t like this and I want to turn and run inside and wake Kristin and put her in the car and leave but the voice drags on. “Ah, Aahhhh, Ahhlll.” My shivers turn to tremors and the voice is changing, what at first seemed to belong to the sandpapered timbre of an old man is getting younger. Smoother. It is improving. The gurgling rasp that sent splinters through my bones is barely a fry, and the voice drags on. “Ahl. Ahl. Ehl. El. El.”
I do finally take a step back now, my own morbid curiosity losing its first bit of ground in a battle against my sense of survival. Whatever is out there is starting to, trying to, or even learning to sound human, but I wouldn’t gamble a glance let alone my life that whatever’s out there is human at all. “El. El,” it prattles on, growing in both volume and what is beginning to sound like excitement. Yes, whatever is out there sounds excited. “EL. EL.” It is nearing a shout now, I feel for my cell phone in my pocket but it is inside by my laptop and oh fucking well because what good would it have done me? Kristin is dead asleep and who would I call? The cops? And tell them what, that I was hearing voices? From a pond? The truth is I don’t know what the fuck I would do if I had my phone but I am very certain I need to go where it is. I need to go inside.
I take two or three more steps back before I feel safe enough to turn around, but even then I do not. I am almost to the door, almost sure that this has all been my imagination and that I really needed to turn it in for the night when the voice starts again, quieter now. “Hhhhhhhel.” The H was raspy, clattering, like it’s owner could not decipher precisely how to make the sound but in two more passes it had learned. “Hellll. Hell.” I reached behind me to open the glass door and found that I had not closed it. The ground beneath me was littered with jagged and piercing pebbles that bore into my bare feet and had I more brainpower to allocate to the sensation I might have suspected that I had stepped on a piece of glass because the pain of this step surges up into my calf like fire.
“Hellll. Helll,” the voice insisted. NO. NO, my mind screamed. I purposefully overcompensate when I lift my feet behind me to step into the house, not wanting to trip on the ledge and find myself suddenly prone, unsure of what danger I was actually in, only sure that I was in Some amount of danger. Both feet land on soft carpet, one after another, and I keep my eyes on the hedge as I extend my hand to find the sliding door. My fingers wrap around the angled handle, but before I begin to pull it shut I hear the voice once more, crisp and calm.
“Help.” The word is spoken, not asked, and the P is a confused plosive that spits water, as if the mouth of this creature dipped too low into the pool of obsidian it waded in and spat as it croaked its haunting plea.
“Hello?” I cry out before I can think not to but it’s too late. I want to shut the door now, more than I’ve ever wanted anything but every fiber of me is begging, praying that this can all be explained and so I step back out into the patio. Like an idiot. The rocks press into my surely bleeding feet and I reach them behind me and scrape them against the lip of the doorway to clear them from the pits they have dug into me. They rock with pain again and one is stuck, drilled into my foot. I aim to dig it out but I am moving again.
There is no response yet, I am to the table and here I stop. “Hello? Is someone out there?” My words have very little to echo off of aside from the house behind me and so my cry feels sterile, like I am on the moon or at the very least very utterly alone. But I am not alone. I take one more step, arriving at the hedge, and I want to ask again because I want this to be explainable. I want this to be a case of Me Getting Worked Up Over Nothing or someone actually needing help or a prank Oh God I would be so happy if this were nothing but a prank but that ship sails and hope topples because when I hear the voice again it is my voice. It is my own voice coming from not my body and it is, right now, talking to me.
“Hello” not me says. The word is even, barely accented, foreign on the tongue of its speaker and before that alone has time enough to break my resolve I can hear the sound of water falling and breaking as whatever is just beyond the hedge, whatever is no more than three or four feet away from me, begins to stand up out of the water.
“Hello,” it offers again but I am already running towards the door. More rocks dig into my feet and are carried with me into the house where I pull the sliding door closed like there is a bear on the other side. I no more than have it locked, a bead of sweat breaks rank on my brow and slides down my nose, when the sharp and sudden Tink of something hitting the plate glass causes my heart to stutter and spark painfully out of time. Tink, Tink. Two more projectiles collide against the door and my mind goes to the pebbles on the patio. I double check the lock, twisting the latch to the point of aching, trying to lock it harder. Lock it more. There is another Tink followed by two more in quick succession and when I look past the glass boundary in front of me the hedge is morphing, stretching around something that is pushing its way through.
Scrambling, nearly falling, I rush for the front door and find it is not locked either, How am I so fucking stupid, but I lock it and thank God that this door has a deadbolt I can use. The latch on the sliding glass suddenly seems like a joke and I wish it were 3 inch thick steel. I wish there were no door there at all.
Tink, Tink. The door in the living room is alight and I want to run straight upstairs but I have to get my phone. I have to call the police. Tink. It’s right there by my computer, maybe ten steps there and back, but the Tinks are getting louder, and closer together. The urge to yell and wake Kristin surfaces, but I am too afraid to make a sound, to announce myself. My breath is a full shudder now, quaking and creaking in and out of my lungs in short blasts, when I decide to turn the corner and make a run for it.
I turn my head around the corner first, waiting for a lull in whatever is throwing rocks at my door like I was waiting for an enemy to reload. Tink. Tink. I can see my phone sitting next to my laptop but it might as well be a mile away because I can also see out into the shadowy yard beyond where something was crawling. No, not crawling, but dragging itself across the bricks with its legs, are those legs, dragging lifelessly behind it. Its arms, are those arms, were locked upright, or possibly didn’t have elbows to bend at all or perhaps it had dozens of elbows and they were all locked in a dogged and hellish drive to drag itself right to my door and right to me. As it got closer I could see the water shimmer on its sickly grey skin, what other features it might have had were obscured in the darkness, there was no moon, but I swore I could make out the texture of hair, or very coarse fur, or possibly even scales. The blackness of the yard made it appear to be slicked with crude oil that dripped, viscous and slow, from its body in long black trails across the patio. With a surprising balance it bent one arm, or rather coiled it, up to its mouth and withdrew something that it swung with a full wind at the window.
Tink. I jumped as it made contact with the glass and watched with cold blood as it reached back into its mouth and crooked its neck to again pry something from its maw. It swung its arm in a windmill fashion again and the object that struck the window cracked against the glass, fell, and bounced lightly on the brick below. I followed it with unblinking eyes as it dropped and rolled a few inches in a circular patter but couldn’t make out, or didn’t want to make out what I was seeing. It looked long and conical, tapering to a needles point at one end and all at once the wounds on the soles of my feet sent a dizzying signal of pain and realization that finally allowed me to look away. I slid back around the corner, holding my body tight against the wall, lifted one foot, and picked at the rocks embedded in my heels.
They sang in agony as my fingers studied for them and when I found the first one, seeping blood as I had suspected, it was a live wire. My nerves sang but I pinched the tips of my fingers around one that was sunk deep into the muscle and it pulled out in a long, smooth track. Shaking from the pain, I brought the object closer to my face to inspect it in the ambient light from my laptop from the room next door. Tink. It did not look, or feel like a rock. It was maybe half an inch long, polished smooth, jagged at one end and terrifying sharp at the other. I pricked my finger at its point to test the edge when the dawning fear that this was not a rock took hold. This was not a rock at all. This was a tooth. This was a fang. Whatever that thing was out there it was ripping its own needly fangs from its skull and throwing them at the door. Tink. Tink.
Fuck my phone. I darted up the stairs but halfway up my path the blood from my foot denied me traction on the hardwood steps and I slipped and tumbled down hard. My head racked against the post holding the handrail and landed with a concussive thud against the linoleum entryway floor. The fang on the ground bounced and rattled beside me as I dropped and when I opened my eyes I could hear scraping on the glass door, like teeth on a chalkboard.
I look upstairs, expecting to see the bedroom light flick on but Kristin remains miraculously asleep so I shout. “Kristin! Kriiiiiistiiiiiin!” Tink. Tink Tink Tink. “Kriiiiistin! Kristin wake up!” Tink. Outside the creature screams, in my own muffled voice,
“Krrrrriiiiiiiiii. Krrrriiiiiiiiiiissssstsss” Tink. Tink.
“KRISTIN WAKE THE FUCK UP!” My voice breaks to a squeak on Fuck and it rips at my throat. Outside the creature moans.
“Krrriiiistin. Kristin. Wwwwaaaaaaake.” The door rattles, the lock holds, but the Not Me scrrraaaapes at the door with squealing nails and I begin to cry. I try to stand but my head is wheeling and my leg suddenly blazes with pain and I cannot move it.
“Kriiiiiistin!” I am sobbing, and the door rattles with violent bangs now. The lock clutches at its latch with increasing strain, the metallic hammering of its catch pinging and cracking over and over.
“Kristin. KRISTIN. Wwaaaaaaake Uhhhhh.” The Not Me wails. I pull my body the rest of the way down the stairs on my elbows, my knee explodes in pain that lightnings all the way up my leg every time my foot falls to the next step and I mewl with every movement. When I am finally down, sweating profusely now, I spin around as carefully but as quickly and I can and begin to try and pull myself up the stairs backwards. Kristin has her cell phone up there and if I can get up there, if I can just make it up there and bang on the door and hopefully wake her comatose ass up then we both might just live to see another fucking day. With my one good leg I push against the wall and try to reach up the handrail but my world is spinning around me and my eyes can’t focus on anything for more than a few seconds before my stomach turns and I have to squeeze them shut again to keep from wretching.
“Kristin. KRISTIN,” the Not Me exclaims again with growing excitement as I opt to roll over on my stomach and climb up the stairs. “KRISTIN. KRISTIN WAKE. KRISTIN WAKE.” I reach my hand up as many steps as I can and pull on the lip of the board with as much grip as I can but my hand slips in my own fucking blood from my own fucking foot. I wince as I absent-mindedly attempt to wipe the blood from my hand on the pant of my Bad Leg and swiftly adjust to cleaning my hand on my shirtsleeve. Outside the monster moans and slams at the glass in shrieking fits. Its voice is gravel and smoke again, churning and changing beneath a thick film of clotted mucus and filth. I push against the door with my good leg again and reach for the step, my fingers find enough purchase to hold on but as soon as I try to give it even a fraction of my weight it slips free again and my leg screams, burns, electrifies. It’s Too. Fucking. Slick.
Not Me’s voice is lifting high into a pitching scream, almost a lady’s scream, and I’m shaking as I pull my shirt sleeve up again to try and clean my hands on it. Shaking from pain, shaking from fear, shaking from knowing. Knowing that I could be about to die. However, when I look over at the sleeve with my hazing, darkening vision everything suddenly stands still. My shirt sleeve is not clean, but it is not smeared with my blood either, and the step may have blood on it but more than anything I realize that what my hand is slipping in not blood but water. Pond water. I sink.
The door rattles and either shatters or the latch breaks or both by the time I put it all together. The front door was not locked. It was never locked. I was outside for so long before I heard the splash, the splash of the creature getting back in the water. The front door was unlocked, and Kristin may be a deep sleeper but she is not asleep and there is no moon.
In the living room I heard a sound like wet velcro ripping apart and two long, bloody fangs crack against the back wall to my left. I let myself slide all the way to the floor again, and weep. The carpet squishes and cowls as the creature drags its sopping legs and before it rounds the corner it utters one perfect impression of Kristin as it says in a dull, even mimic, “Help.”

Bio

Ghost is an infamous and highly skilled corporate saboteur; he despises the huge, multinational companies that treat regular workers and people as dispensable pawns in their endeavours for greater turnover and profit margins; Ghost believes not only that all these organisations need to be destroyed, but that he is the one who can do it. This has resulted in him being extremely paranoid, seeing conspiracies almost everywhere and rarely, if ever, trusting anybody other than himself.
Ghost was originally a highly gifted IT engineer working for the corporation Omnisapient systems where he played a major part in developing a processor that could turn intangible before overheating; tech he would later work into his ghost suit. Eventually he would develop a relationship with a female co-worker, and everything seemed to be going well, until his lover was killed in a gas explosion. Losing all motivation and desire to connect with anyone else, he delved further into his work until he learned how to connect his mind to Omnisapient's system and bathe in their data. Here is where he learned the truth: that his love interest had been paid to have a relationship with him to keep him happy, and not only that but Omnisapient had subsequently arranged the gas explosion that killed her. Realising he had been nothing more than a disposable pawn in the corporations machinations, Ghost went about tracking down and killing the members of the board one by one, even managing to get aboard a private plane with one of the board members and crash it into a mountain and causing another's private boat to collide with an ocean liner.. Ghost deleted all traces and records of his previous life, thinking of that person to have died when he was betrayed. Now all that remains is his Ghost.

2019.10.12 10:01 Yoface7 MRI right ankle lateral ongoing pain

I inversion rolled my ankle on 6/1, thought it was a basic sprain. Turns out I fractured my cuboid. 6 weeks in a cast, 6 weeks in stiff soles shoe. Still having ongoing lateral pain. Follow up MRI to see if maybe I have a stress fracture situation and not healing.....and the results are:
Narrative MR LOWER EXTREMITY JOINT WO CONTRAST RIGHT EXAM DATE: 10/11/2019 12:19 PM COMPARISON: Right ankle radiographs 8/12/2019, MR right ankle 6/22/2019
INDICATION: Signs/Symptoms: RIGHT foot/ankle inversion injury (sustained 6/01/19) resulting in non-displaced cuboid fracture with persistent pain over lateral ankle/midfoot -- repeat MRI to assess for persistent fracture / bony healing
TECHNIQUE: Multiplanar, multisequence MRI without intravenous gadolinium contrast material.
FINDINGS: OSTEOARTICULAR STRUCTURES: No acute fracture or malalignment. Resolution of previously seen cuboid edema. Increased signal intensity is noted in the shaft of the fifth metatarsal, favored to represent artifact caused poor fat saturation in this region. No bone edema or substantial arthrosis. No OCD or intra-articular body. No effusion.
LIGAMENTOUS STRUCTURES: Tibiofibular Syndesmosis (AITFL and PITFL): Intact. Anterior Talofibular (ATFL): Thickened/scarred. Calcaneofibular (CFL): Thickened/scarred. Posterior Talofibular (PTFL): Intact. Deltoid: Thickened/scarred. Spring: Intact.
MUSCULOTENDINOUS STRUCTURES: Anterior (ATT, EHL, EDL): Intact. Medial (PTT, FDL, FHL): Mild flexor digitorum digitorum tendinosis, similar to prior. Lateral (Peroneus Brevis and Longus): Intact. Achilles and plantar fascia: Mild Achilles tendinosis, with thickening and intermediate signal. Muscles: Within normal limits.
ADDITIONAL FINDINGS: Sinus Tarsi, tarsal tunnel and other findings: Within normal limits.
IMPRESSION: 1. Interval resolution of the nondisplaced cuboid fracture. 2. Remote injuries of the medial lateral ligaments, as above.
So I'm guessing something involving my 5th metatarsal might be the source of my pain?

2019.09.16 08:15 mister-noggin A cautionary tale about DBW LLC

In January 2018 I ordered a set of injectors from Peter at DBW LLC using their hot swap program. As part of this, paid a $600 deposit for the cores and tools. While Peter was initially responsive with my questions prior to the order, he has been consistently slow and responsive with virtually everything since then. I will readily admit that I missed the initial return window, and an argument can certainly be made that a complete refund can’t be expected. That’s fine. What isn’t fine is that over a year later, Peter is still holding my $600 deposit, the injector cores I sent in, and the tools I returned. He has sent me a set that includes a #3 injector with a damaged wire, and possibly damage to the others. It is definitely not the set I sent him.
This is a summary of how it has gone. I’ve included a more detailed timeline further below.
• The injectors were shipped to me without the tools necessary to install them that were supposed to be part of the package. This meant the weekend I had set aside to install them couldn’t be used. Frustrating. It was also frustrating that it took multiple messages about this to get the tools sent
• After finally receiving the tools, between weather, birthday stuff for my child and business travel, I was finally able to install the injectors. At this point I was past the 21-day business day return window. I checked on the site a couple times and somehow missed it. I don’t know how I missed, but I did. I’ll readily admit that.
• During the replacement, I found that my injector had a damaged #3 wire. I emailed Peter about this and he said to find one on ebay and send it in along with the rest and they would credit back the full amount. Since I was already past the return window, this seems like an opportune time for him to have mentioned it. He didn’t mention it when I sent follow-up questions either.
• I didn’t see good replacements on ebay immediately, so I checked back a couple times and eventually found a good one and returned everything in July. It seemed later than ideal, but Peter hadn’t said anything about a date to get everything in. Just, “Yeah we cannot except any damage number three injector wires if you can see if you can source one on eBay that does not have a damaged wire and you can send that in with your set and then we can credit back the full amount“
• A month went by after the return and I hadn’t heard anything. After a couple messages, Peter said they were too late, he had to spend the deposit on replacement, and I could have a partial refund or he could return mine. I asked what the option for a partial refund would be. I never received a response.
• After several additional follow-ups, Peter eventually shipped me a set of injectors. These were not mine. They appear to be in poor condition overall, and the wire of the #3 injector is damaged. I have asked how he would like to resolve this and the only response I have received is that tools aren’t covered by the deposit. It has been a week since I sent a response to that and there has been no response.
Here are the issues I have:
• Peter has been extraordinarily slow to respond throughout almost the entire process, and has consistently required reminders in order to get a response.
• While Peter seems intent on holding me to a 21-day window, he has taken as much time as he has liked for everything else.
• He says that the $600 deposit was used to purchase new injectors. Looking at the price of used injectors, you could buy at least two, maybe three sets for this amount. Again, I understand a partial refund because, but saying that the entire deposit is unavailable because it was spent on replacement appears dishonest.
• If the tools genuinely weren’t covered by the deposit, there should have been some contact from him requesting their return, or additional payment. Prior to sending them back, this had not been done. Peter was presumably happy with having the $600 and not the tools or the injector cores
• Over a year after returning my cores, Peter still has my $600, usable cores, and the toolset
Here’s the timeline. I have also put up screenshots of all of our emails here - https://imgur.com/a/sfEhlXI
• 13 January 2018 – initial inquiry
• 13 January 2018 – response from Peter. Quick and informative
• 17 January 2018 – order placed
• 19 January 2018 – fedex email received saying that package is expected to be shipped that day (it wasn’t)
• 22 January 2018 – fedex email saying package has actually shipped
• 23 January 2019 – package received
• 1 February 2018 – in preparation to install, I go through the package. The tools are missing. An email is sent to Peter
• Unknown date – additional message sent through DBW website about missing tools
• 7 February 2018 – email sent again about missing tools
• 8 February 2018 – response that tools have been sent
• 9 February 2018 – tools are delivered
• 16 March 2018 – I replace the injectors and find that my #3 injector had a crimp connecting the cable. Knowing this is likely a problem I ask Peter
• 16 March 2018 – Peter replies that this will be a problem and suggests that I look on ebay for a replacement so I can get a full refund. He does not mention a time frame.
• 18 March 2018 – I ask whether the connector matters. He never responds
• Since I wasn’t given a deadline, I occasionally check ebay to find a replacement that appears to be in good condition that has the same connector
• 10 July 2018 – injector cores and tools shipped to DBW
• 11 August 2018 – since there has been no communication, I check in
• 21 August 2018 – since there has again been no communication, I check in again
• 22 August 2018 – Peter says the cores were received 5 months past the maximum return date. He offers a partial refund (undefined) or a return
• 30 August 2018 – I ask what he has in mind for the partial refund
• Much time lapses
• 5 August 2019 – I ask about the refund again
• 18 August 2019 – I again ask
• 18 August 2019 – Peter says they used the deposit to purchase replacements, and says they are not eligible
• 18 August – I request that my cores and tools be returned
• 29 August – as there has again been no response I ask if they have shipped
• 3 September – another reminder email from me to Peter
• 3 September – Peter says he has a set to return to me
• 6 September – I receive a set of injectors. These are not the ones I sent in. The wire on the #3 injector is damaged, and the other injectors show signs of damage. The tools were also not returned.
• 6 September – I send an email to Peter about my concerns about the damage to the #3 injector and the missing tools
• 10 September – I sent another reminder to him
• 10 September – Peter responds that it was a core deposit, not a tool deposit. He ignores the #3 injector
• 10 September – I reply that it appears that the tools should be covered. And point out he didn’t respond about the #3 injector.
• Nothing has since been received from him

2019.07.18 00:19 devaoPolo Is this atrophy in my hand and if so, what pinched nerve can have caused it?

Hi,

Gender: Male, Age: 29 years, Height: 183cm, Weight: 74kg, Race: Caucassian, Geographic: Denmark (Copenhagen). No medications (but headache like 8-10 times a month if that matters), Smoking: No smoker.
I have been suffering from tingling on/off (mostly on) in my right thumb and the web between my thumb and index finger for 1,5 years. First I went to the GP with it and got some stretching exercises for the wrist. Afterwards to a PT, which tried someone else than the wrist and thus gave exercises for the neck (if a herniated disc at C6 pressed my nerves) and shoulder in case of Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. It has been up and down, and I do not know today if I can accredit any of that to those exercises, but these days its mostly down... The tingling is constant in my thumb-muscle, when I move my thumb.
I have been sent to a neurologist, which gave me a referral to the hospital for an MR of the neck and an EMG of the wrist and elbow. Unfortunately, the waiting time is 1 month and 5 months respectively at Danish hospitals for those... At the same time, I have started noticing some atrophy in my right hand, which seems to be getting worse, and I cannot talk to the neurologist about it, since she is on a 1 month vacation. Here is images of the hand:

Since I have started seeing what seems to be atrophy, I have started sort of panicking. Both in terms of:

Let me know, if I can help do anything test-wise (at this point after 1,5 years of lonesomeness with it, I'm ready to run directly to the Ocean and chuck salt-water if its part of a test) or information-wise.
In either case, thanks for reading and allowing me a bit of outlet for this!

Tournament Talk is a weekly discussion series highlighting some of the top tournaments every weekend, or in this case, the weeklong World U-24 Ultimate Championships! Chat about the teams, make predictions and share reactions as results roll in. Be sure to check out our Discord channel to discuss the events live!

Tournament Information

Held every two years, U-24s brings together top talent from across the globe to battle for the title of World Champion. This year, 51 teams from 29 countries will convene in Heidelberg, Germany, from July 13th to July 20th. At the last event, the US swept: Will it happen again?

U-24s Spoiler Policy

Heidelberg, Germany is UTC+2, six hours ahead of Eastern time and nine hours ahead of Pacific time, and as such many games will be played during the nighttime hours of the United States, where most of our users reside. Therefore, we are implementing a simple spoiler policy to allow users to watch the games and still browse /ultimate without being spoiled.
  1. All new threads pertaining to U-24s must have spoiler-free titles. (Ask if you're unsure!)
  2. If a new thread has spoilers in its content, it must also include "[Spoilers]" in the title.
  3. Comments in threads that are unrelated to U-24s (ie. an AUDL thread) that have spoilers must use spoiler tags: >!PutSpoilerHere!< PutSpoilerHere
  4. Comments in threads that are related to U-24s (ie. a U-24 stickied thread) do NOT need spoiler tags. Enter at your own risk.
If you see a spoiler: Ask the user to redact or remove it and/or message the mods. Please note we may not be able to get to every spoiler in time, the only foolproof way to avoid spoilers is to temporarily unsubscribe from this subreddit for the duration of the tournament.
We understand many people have different views on spoiler policies, and we appreciate any and all feedback you might have. There will continue to be many international championship events in the coming months and years to experiment with different policies. Thank you!

Livestreaming and Where to Watch

U-24 games will be livestreamed on four different platforms this year. A breakdown is as follows:
Free Streams
  1. The opening game between Germany and Belgium (Women's) will be livestreamed on WFDF's Youtube Channel along with Fanseat.
  2. All three finals will be livestreamed either on the Olympic Channel or TWG Channel (or both).
  3. Ultiworld will be streaming 18 games for free on Ultiworld.com/Live. Archived games will only be available for eligible Ultiworld subscribers.
Paid Streams
  1. Fanseat will be streaming 28 games as part of its subscription service, which costs 9.99 euros a month (~$11.24 USD). There is no longer a free trial as best I can tell, but the service can be cancelled at any time. Archived games will only be available for Fanseat subscribers.
Time Conversion
  • The local time is UTC+2. For Eastern time, simply subtract 6 hours. For Central, subtract 7, for Mountain, subtract 8, for Pacific, subtract 9. For UTC residents, subtract only 2.
Note: Apparently the Fanseat streams might differ from the schedule below.

2018.12.31 20:37 Herr_Zimmermann Veillons au salut de l'empire Progress Report #2:Dutch Council Republik

Hello, welcome to a brand new progress report, today I have nation that might not seem to interesting by its gameplay, but one with exciting history and an important part in the events to come. A nation on which I also today reveal the "middle" socialist ideology, a nation with many problems but a nation with a bright future, should the leaders point it in the right direction.
Note: Sorry for saying Holland instead of Netherlands but it is just way more natural.

Overview: The Dutch council republic did not come to existence under that name. After the Grande guerre, Holland found itself abandoned. With British economic situation in dire state, the country, while not involved in the war itself suffered comparably.
The breaking point came in years 1922 and 1923, with the general strike over the whole British isles and following revolution. This meant sereveraů things for Dutch. 1.Being economically dependent on Britain this destabilized their economy even further. 2.Having similar situation due to this dependency meant similar elements as in Britain rose in Holland, and socialist parties were experiencing a boom and finally, with the British also holding undeniable political influence, it was not hard to set the revolutionaries into a motion.
With help of British elements within the country, the socialists were soon organized and in 1936 a full violent revolution war sparked, taking the country by surprise. Soon the government was overwhelmed, choosing an exile, socialists had free hands to establish the "Union of Benelux".
This however was not mere name and the revolution was far from over. As soon as power was consolidated over the country, the revolutionaries, claiming liberation and unification of low countries as their goal, crossed the border into Belgium, starting an event that shall be known as "the Benelux Revolution"
While unorganized and largely chaotic, the revolution saw some sucess and for a moment even looking to be turning in the favour of the Dutch. They were wrong however.
As the revolutionaries marched more and more south, towards Brussel, the French decided things have gone too far. Crossing the border,the French army soon swept across Belgium to meet the Dutch head on. Striking a serious blow to the disorganized militas and pushing them more and more northwards.
It would almost look as if everything was lost for the Dutch, however in time, their British ally mobilized to occupy Netherlands and threatened the French to back off.
And they did, seeking to avoid conflict, French troops evacuated from Netherlands, leaving the core of the union unharmed, while simentaneously however taking over Belgium and setting up a puppet Junta to prevent socialism from spreading through the country ever again, one way or another and annexing Luxemburg into the new military state.
With the revolution failed, the newly renamed Dutch Council republic was in ruins, with the previous neglection of the economy and immideate mobilization, Dutch industry was once again in ruins and the country would continue to carry this legacy for 10 more years into the future.

Dutch Council Republic in 1936:
In 1936 the legacy of the revolution is still alive, apart from calling for a new one, the effects of the first war can still be felt upon the country, mostly in a negative way. The economy is crippled, and for ten years, the country has barely been able to pass any real reforms to transfer to a true Internationalist socialist state.
Another thing plaguing Holland is however the British, with their traditional influence upon the country. While certainly helping the Dutch recover and build up for another war, this of course comes at a cost, further increasing the Dutch dependency on their comrades in the west. Something that they will definetly want to change.

The elections of 1936:
With the foundation of the Union and later the Council Republic in 1926, the elections were scheduled to take place every five years, gathering the councils to elect their new government to represent their interests and further their revolutionary agenda.
This path shall also lead to removal of the Legacy of the BNL Revolution. The parties will remove the effects through through effects to ephacize on the recovery aspect, while in the last focus also gaining a bonus, unique to each individual party.

Three blocks will participate in these elections:
RSAP- The revolutionary socialist workers party repersents the current establishment of Holland.
Following the ideology of Internationalism (in OTL known as Left-communism), the party denounces both authoritarian socialists and the anarchist tradition, while even more vehemently opposing any kind of reformism and refusing to participate in any non-revolutionary institutions. While also supporting an international revolution and supporting workers in total, uncompromised control over their own labour.
Furthermore, in Holland and Germany, these parties also support workers councils, which will be the main doctrine of RSAP. Which will in the times when Holland finally starts to stabilize seek to fully pass their reforms and transform the country into a union of Workers councils where the workers have total control over what they produce.

CPN-The communist party of Netherlands represents the so called "Vanguardist" wing of the Dutch political scene.
Lead by David Wijnkoop, the party shall follow the doctrine of Maximalism, seeking to create an authoritarian socialist state, with centrally planned economy lead by vanguard made of class-concious individuals (this is basically somewhat equivalent to the OTL Marxism-Leninism/Stalinism and similar ideologies).
In the case of Holland, this will also mean seeking to gain more control over the councils and to root out the reactionary elements from the country, who made Netherlands their favorite "vacation spot" due to its strategic position.

SP-The socialist party, also known as Kolthek party after its leader is a libertarian socialist, syndicalist party.
This party shall follow more libertarian (not in the American meaning), anarchist policies, seeking to turn Netherlands into an anarchist federation with syndicalist economic policy.

The Second Benelux Revolution
Now we get into the fun and significant part, which is the main goal the Dutch are going to try to achieve and around which all the other focus trees are revolving.
This path can be divided into two phases:

Phase 1:
In this phase the preparations shall start, Netherlands will seek to arms themselves with the British guns and gather the revolutionaries from all around the world to bolster ther ranks, while also optionally fortifying their border with the enemy. And in the end finally declaring war on Belgium.

Phase 2:
Continuing from the declaration of war on Belgium, the government can once again proclaim the Union of Benelux. Following from there, a two paths need to be taken to get ability to core the Belgian states and Luxemburg.
(This path shall also further remove the dependence on British, so Dutch player will have more factories at his hand)
Both of these paths will already require some form of control over the Belgian territory and will lead you to decide what the fate of the capitalists and the politicians in the country will be, each choice with its unique bonus and maluses.
After the industry is redistributed and the bourgeoise elements dealt with, through the focus "Workers of the Low Countries Unite!", the Dutch player will finally be able to gain cores on the states and finally consolidate the Union.

After that the player also has an option to extend his borders by annexing and coring two new states that make up "French Flanders" area - Dunkirk and the Flandre Francaise, around Lille.
This will push the Beneluxian borders to their maximum extent

The Military
The Dutch military is mostly disorganised chaotic mess. Made partially by the remnants of the pre-revolution army and partly by chaotic militas, the military structure will need to be united and clarified.
There shall be two ways for this, you can either transform the army into centralized Rode Leger (Red Army) which will have bonuses to organization and recovery rate or into the Rode Garde (Red guards, not to be confused with the ones the Vanguardists have), which will have bonus for attack and higher bonus for division recovery rate however will suffer penalty in organization.

The middle path meanwhile, will be dealing with the mobilization, armmanet and preparation for the wars to come, and will be desirable to take before you start the revolution in Benelux region.

The Navy
Red navy will be rather straightforward, this path will see the navy expanded mostly to defend the coast of Netherlands, but you will also get the ability to expand and even build carries to strike back at the attacker, but thats pretty much it.

Alright thats the end of the diary, hopefully this has been an insightfull look not only to Holland and the lore but also to socialism of this universe.
I will not announce any dates and wont tell you about the country, but next time, we shall see each other on Balkans, goodbye and happy new year to all of you!

2018.09.05 11:13 Hippemann Les groupes des clubs français inscrits en compétitions européenes

Ces groupes sont formés de deux listes (A et B).

LA LISTE A

Aucun club ne peut inscrire plus de 25 joueurs sur la liste A pendant la saison. Deux de ces joueurs au moins doivent être des gardiens. Au moins huit joueurs de la liste A doivent être des formés en France (+Monaco) dont 4 joueurs formés au club sur ces huit positions. Les clubs auront droit à inscrire deux nouveaux joueurs durant la trêve hivernale. Un joueurs est considéré formé au club s'il a eu 3 licences annuelles avant ses 21 ans

LA LISTE B

Chaque club peut inscrire un nombre illimité de joueurs sur la liste B pendant la saison. La liste doit être soumise jusqu’à minuit au plus tard la veille du match en question. Un joueur peut être inscrit sur la liste B s’il est né le 1er janvier 1996 ou après cette date et si, à la date de son inscription auprès de l’UEFA, il a été qualifié pour jouer pour le club concerné pendant une période ininterrompue d'au moins deux ans depuis l’âge de 15 ans révolus.

A noter que :

  • Tuchel n'y a pas inscrit Jesé toujours au club après qu'un possible prêt à Nantes n'ait pas abouti
  • Leonardo Jardim n'utilisera pas Pelé, Pierre-Gabriel, Geubbels, Navarro ou encore Isidor en Coupe d'Europe
  • Bruno Genesio a décidé d'inscrire, dans ses 25 places, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, annoncé partant depuis plusieurs mois. En revanche, la nouvelle recrue Leny Pintor, qui est arrivé en provenance de Brest le 31 août, n'est pas inscrite dans la liste sur le site de l'UEFA mais le club prétend que oui alors qu'il n'y a que 24/25. Giouri est inscrit sur le liste B alors qu'il est blessé pour 6 mois.
  • Rudy Garcia n'a pas retenu Aymen Abdennour (29 ans) dans la liste pour la Ligue Europa au contraire de Roccia et Kamara
  • Sabir Lamouchi pourra bien compter sur la présence de ses deux dernières recrues, Hatem Ben Arfa et M'Baye Niang. Le staff rennais a également choisi d'inscrire le jeune Georginio Rutter (16 ans). En revanche, pas de Denis-Will Poha, ni Gerzinio Nyamsi et Yann Gboho qui pourront être ajouté à la liste B la veille du match

2017.11.20 23:14 Londonerer Want to talk about an open relationship - but not sure how to without ruining ours...

EDIT:
Can I just say firstly 'wow' and secondly 'thanks so much'. I wasn't expecting so many answers so quickly. Some were thoughtful, some were empathetic, some were brutal, some were hopeful - and all were useful.
It was really useful to hear the sanity check on "maybe an open relationship isn't going to solve all of your problems" in its many guises. As well as the practical advice on having the conversation or seeking counselling or doing research.
I don't think I've got all the answers but I can now see some achievable first steps, which is always the hardest thing. Thanks in particular to u/ih-shah-may-ehl u/gottarespondtothis u/workonitnow u/marriedscoundrel u/love_is_blindness u/Pleather_Boots u/SWRer

Hey everyone.
Lurked here occasionally and never posted. You seem like a really kind, understanding, and non-judgemental bunch - which I always thought was an impossibility on the internet, so there you go. I hope you've got some advice because I don't really know how to talk to my friends about this kind of thing...
Basics: I'm HL, she's LL. In my mid 30s. Been together for 7 years, own a place together, no kids. Love each other very much. Haven't had sex in 18-24 months or so.
Like many of you, I'm sure, we started out with quite a healthy sex life, and a few years ago it just started to dip. We talked about it several times over the years, but instead of helping, those conversations have just felt like punctuations in a slow decline.
I remember that a few days after the first conversation we had, she revealed that she'd started having flashbacks something in her past that were killing her libido. I of course understood. Long story short, she sought therapy, and we tried to make it work when we could.
Some time later, she developed a mild form of depression which she managed through exercise and mindfulness, but which pushed her libido even further down.
Having recovered, some time later still, she developed some other medical issues that made the physical act of PIV sex really uncomfortable. So although other stuff was still possible, her desire fell further still.
There's more I could say, but you get the picture. There's not been one moment of our bedroom dying, but an almost imperceptibly slow fade over a period of years instead.
So. We've talked about it before, what's to stop us talking about it more, right? Two big things.
The first is that with each of the issues, she's convinced - or says - that they're temporary. She acknowledges the impact they have on our sex life, wants to make it better, but can't say anything beyond that it'll just take time. I can tell she means it, and believe her when she says it's hurting her emotionally too. Obviously from my perspective, although each issue has been temporary, the issue they're masking (or creating) is that she just has no sex drive now.
And the second is that I think it's genuinely just resulted in us being less sexually attracted to each other. We're still physically intimate in non-sexual ways, both in decent shape, both enjoy cuddling before drifting off... but it feels like I, at least, have been trained to not find her attractive anymore. Because what's the point?
So we've had numerous conversations about this that haven't got anywhere. And I feel like a dick bringing it up again because I know that it's out of her control, and she's got health issues she's battling, and me making her feel guilty about the impact of those wouldn't help.
I really don't want to leave her. I had enough relationships in my 20s to know that the emotional connection I have with her isn't found easily. We get on with each others friends, I like her family, all that jazz. If I forget about the sex, it feels like a great relationship.
Of course, I can't forget about the sex. And what feels most frustrating is that even if we got back to what might feel like an 'acceptable' level of sex - say, once a week or so - that would still be a compromise on my part.
Not just on quantity, but quality too; I'm fairly kinky, and I guess made the mistake of not talking to my partner about those kinks (partly because of her previous experiences...).
Now that I write this all out for the first time it feels like a mess.
Anyway. The bottom line is that a good outcome for me would be an open relationship. The trouble is that it feels like having the conversation feels like opening pandora's box...
What if she hates the idea and thinks I'm betraying her for even considering it?
What if she's so disturbed by it that she wants to break up?
Worst of all, what if she hates it but goes along with it because she loves me and I want to try it - and then resents me for it? I have this image of her sitting at home in tears while I'm out on a date, and it breaks my heart.
I was trying to imagine if situations were reversed. Let's say I had ED or something and she had a high libido and then went off to see other men. I think I'd be devastated and probably drinking quite heavily. And yet I still feel resentful and bitter that I'm being forced into this sexless state by her.
So the 'compromise' with myself has been to avoid the conversation, and all those terrible outcomes never come to pass. And we just drift on another week, another month, and now another year, where it feels like I'm wasting part of my life.
I've found I can't watch films or TV shows with her anymore where there's sex involved. We were staying at a hotel recently where we could hear a couple going at it and having fun in the next room, and I could feel this weird mix of anger and embarassment build. Partly that it's always been me that's started the conversation; she knows there's an elephant in the room, but I guess I don't blame her for not wanting to point it out...
I'd love to hear from people who've successfully or unsuccessfully had the open relationship chat. How did it go? What did you say? What did you mean to say? And do you have any advice?
If nothing else, thanks for reading. It feels good to have at least said this in public and realise how mad it sounds.
A.
