bettere city


There is was again, that sensation on the back of her neck.

 She was being followed, and frankly it was getting old. Tired of having her house on complete lockdown, tired of the frustrations that came with just not knowing what they wanted. No, this was ending now…one way or another.

The redhead weaved throughout the city, despite better judgement saying she should have called for help.  Someone watching from above to pinpoint where the shrouded individual was, just like Asher had said.

This would be the perfect place for her would-be stalker to jump her, dark and away from prying eyes. She’d even went so far as to give her back to the wide opening of the empty section, but there was no one.

 “This is getting’ real fuckin’ old!” She called out to… well, literally no one. The woman looked like she had a few loose screws. Neeka threw her hands in the air, letting out an exacerbated sigh before starting to stomp off. It was the faint traces of…chanting? that caused her to stop. All the missing pieces fell into place, especially after spending yesterday afternoon with Adun. 

It would be her, wouldn’t it? She was the one there, the one who spoke to that lunatic leader of theirs. They knew her.

‘Way to go Neeka, get yourself involved with the Mythril Blades and now you have the Lambs of Dalamud after you. All because of some stupid hunk of rock. You should have dealt with it the first time yourself, fuck whatever else anyone wanted to do.’Vicious thoughts swirled in her mind as she broke out into a sprint towards the Goblet in hopes that maybe this time Asher had rigged the security to actually take care of intruders.

She’d made it through the gate, not even taking the time to notice that once again she found herself in an area completely empty. A cry tore from her lips as she was sent to her knee, something had hit her from behind…although it wasn’t physical.

 She knew magic when she felt it, her eyes went wide as she spun around and what do you know? There they were. Carbon copies of what she’d dealt with before, a few times now. Cultists. Four of them to be exact. “A reminder, from Sovereign.” They called out as she got to her feet, teeth showing with a deadly smile.

“I’m going to rip you all to pieces, and feed those pieces to the rest of your little fuckin’ family.” She snarled, taking a few steps forward.

The group was quick to spin around and run back towards the city, a smart move given what’d happened the last two times their comrades faced off against her.

“No. You’re not getting away this time.” A cruel laugh accompanied the words as she reached out to her crystal, she’d have the higher vantage point, jumping over the rooftops and taking them one by one from above.

Only. Nothing happened. Well, to be more specific it felt like there was next to nothing for her crystal to amplify? She stood there for only a moment, examining herself in confusion before her features turned dark. Hadn’t they fucked with Adun’s aether with that curse he’d gotten off himself? Is that what was happening? Did they curse her?

Oh no, she wouldn’t need aether enhanced abilities for what she was going to do to them.

 But first, she needed that fucking rock.

I Trained Crows To Bring Me Quarters

By reddit user LeoDuhVinci

In college, I struggled to make ends meet.  Most of my meals consisted nearly entirely of ramen noodles, garnished with a scrambled egg if my finances were stronger than usual, combined with the weekly splurge of a candy bar and soda each Friday.  I worked a part time job, but city rent was expensive, my classes were too tough to work more than twenty hours a week, and my parents had cut me off the year before.

Not sure if this has been already brought up here, but anyway.

Yuuri is from ‘Hasetsu’ (長谷津), a fictional place in Kyuushuu, but it seems it’s based on the actual city called “Karatsu” (唐津) in the prefecture Saga (Kyusshu).
