Snowman/Atlas

“I get the feeling you don’t like me much.” Atlas says and she can hear him grinning over the radio. “Sullen isn’t a good look on a woman like yourself.” 

Snowman doesn’t acknowledge him. She lights a cigarette and fills her lungs with smoke, tasting the EVE in every puff. He’s right - she doesn’t like him. Revolutionaries have never endeared themselves to her. At best, they’re well-meaning idiots who can’t grasp that there’s a reason for the social hierarchy. At worst, a smokescreen for far more insidious purposes. A dead husband and a fallen empire stand as proof of what can be accomplished when a revolution is controlled and redirected by the elite behind the scenes. 

Atlas strikes her as the well-meaning idiot sort, but that doesn’t mean she has to let her guard down. Sooner or later, his revolution will falter and fail, or else she’ll finally see who was behind it. Sinclair maybe. If Fontaine wasn’t dead, she would have put her money on him. He’s just like Jack, the same scheming ugly kind of asshole who doesn’t just want to win, but to see every single other person lose. Or maybe it will be no one she recognizes this time. Maybe there’s no one besides Atlas.

The silence seems to have gotten to Atlas because the radio hisses to life and he doesn’t sound like he’s smiling when he speaks to her. “An even less good look is dead, which is what you’ll be wearing if you don’t surrender now and turn over the contents of your safes. Nobody has to get hurt, sister, not unless you force it.” 

There’s a crowd outside her store’s doors. Atlas is among them, somewhere. She picks up her revolver and tucks it into a holster, leaving it open to grab at, while she holds her whip in her other hand. Her veins are thrumming with EVE and she knows for certain that security won’t be arriving to help her this time. This time, it’s all on her. 

She presses the call button on the radio. “If you want what’s mine, you’ll have to take it.” 

Snowman smashes the radio before he can call back, not wanting to hear whatever it is he’s saying. It’s more for the followers than for her. What she does is slide off her chair and take up a position in the middle of the store. The crowd slams against the doors and she lets herself fade, turning invisible as she lets the whip spools out beside her.

They might take what’s hers in the end, but she’s going to make them pay in flesh and blood first. 

In Baltimore, of course, the rhetoric of powerlessness just won’t play. Even the incendiary Rev. Jamal Bryant, an Al Sharpton wannabe who has likened the city’s police force to ISIS, has noticed that he lives in a city with a black mayor (the fourth in its history), black police chief, black chief prosecutor, and majority-black city council.

But pay no attention to that black power elite behind the curtain. Let’s talk about “the burn behind the burn,” in the words of Malik Shabazz, described by the Southern Poverty Law Center — not known to be part of the vast right-wing conspiracy — as a “racist black nationalist” with a history of “violently anti-Semitic remarks and accusations about the inherent evil of white people.” Shabazz, according to SPLC, is “particularly skilled at orchestrating provocative protests.”

2. A famous person I’ve been compared to.
There was an annoying kid in summer school who kept calling me Webster (Emmanuel Lewis). Aside from that, I don’t get a lot comparisons to celebrities.
Edit: Oh, msands78 has suggested that James Earl Jones is my illegitimate father. Does that count?  

6. How I’d spend ten thousand bucks.
Bills and practical expenses (planning to move again soon and there are some things that would come in handy), paying back some people I owe (not a monetary debt so much as an), and clearing out my Amazon/iTunes wish-list. And pocketing a bit of it to save for later.

15. Lyrics that apply to my current situation/mood.
Well, I’m doing some tablet-top roleplaying with some fellows so probably “Rogues Do It From Behind” by Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain suits my immediate circumstances (I’m playing a rogue). It’s a comedic song from World of Warcraft about the Rogue class. 
In a more general sense… I’m trying to think of a song that sums things up right now and drawing a blank. 

18. Post a picture of myself.

26. Story of my first kiss.
It’s a bit blurry now, but I recall it involved my first boyfriend, a field party and a tent.

A million-dollar full-ride scholarship endowment to an Ivy League school is a good deed. But it doesn’t just earn you karma—it nets you fawning emails from the school’s development officials, customized campus tours for your kids, and private meetings with the school’s president, leaked Sony emails show.

Newly surfaced emails from Sony Pictures CEO Michael Lynton provide a schematic for how millions of dollars in Adam Sandler grosses can yield immensely preferential treatment for your children, not only providing access to a college admissions process that’s out of reach for virtually all other Americans, but giving them better opportunities both in college and in internships and job opportunities afterward.

An email from Lynton’s sister, noticed by the London Review of Books, is an admirably succinct summary of elite strategy:

He writes to his sister: ‘David… called me. he is obsessed with getting his eldest in Harvard next year.’ She replies: ‘If David wants to get his daughter in he should obviously start giving money.’ Obviously.
