The whole “fiction doesn’t effect reality” and the “It’s just a game/movie/book/show” arguments are so… ridiculous? Especially if said game/movie/book/show is attempting to do commentary on real life social issues. Like so many of these forms of media are trying to mix real life events into their works but they’re failing at the basics at it and in turn have a negative impact…
Take Overwatch for example… Blizzard is trying so damn hard to make the people who don’t like omnics to be villainous. But that whole idea falls flat when it’s shown that the reason omnics aren’t trusted is because they fucking started a world war. Like??? Yeah? Of course they’re not going to be well liked years after the war? So turning around and telling us that these robots are oppressed and anyone who doesn’t like them is wrong… is just dumb. That’s not how oppression works. Like yeah, how omnics are being treated is shitty but to act like there isn’t a valid reason for them to not be trusted is a blatant misunderstanding of oppression…
At no point in time were oppressed groups ever held worldwide power over their oppressors.
And in turn by having the marginalized group hold power over their oppressors, it makes the hatred of them justified. Oppression is NEVER justified. At no point should “Yeah this group is mistreated… But look at the destruction they caused” ever be said. There shouldn’t be a “But” or a “well they did do this” when you are discussing oppression and prejudices.
So having your Latino character, Gabriel Reyes, flat out say “Omnics built their cities and did the jobs humans didn’t want to do. In return: No rights and no citizenship” is so damn obviously about undocumented Mexican immigrants, it’s not even a joke. Or even have your Muslim Egyptain character, Ana Amari, say “They’re not extremist Gabriel. They’re terrorist.” Or the fact that there’s a mandatory registration for omnics, paralleling Jewish people during the rise of Nazi Germany. Like holy shit? They couldn’t be more on the nose with this shit.
The bad thing is tho, is despite how just how poor Blizzard (or any company/writers for that matter) is handling this, you’re still have those people who act like this is good commentary. Like the words of actual marginalized people wasn’t enough for them to understand what we’re going through. Nope. A million dollar company or inexperienced writers had to give their bullshit perspective of oppression and some of y’all will just eat it up.
Requested by @teaandmusicme : Can I get an imagine where you play on Mr. Robot and date Rami and the two have been fighting a lot and instead of Rami saying what he said to Bill? About if they died it wouldn’t matter he has to say it to her and he feels bad about it even though itÄs not about her. Some angst and fluff would be great please and thanks :)
A/N: Hey Love, I hope you still remember your request and I’m sorry I let you wait to long for this. To be honest, I had trouble with the reasons for Rami’s strange behaviour so I let it out but I hope you still like this!
A/N2: I shared some tears while I wrote this one shot, it made me sad somehow. Feedbacks are appreciated!

know what happened to him. He was acting so weird the last few weeks, and
didn’t even tell you the reason why. He came late at night from work, while you
were still asleep, cuddling against his pillow, pretending it was him. Sometimes
you would share some tears. You missed him. You missed your relationship before
he changed so much. It felt like after all this time he was ignoring you.
been fighting a lot, sometimes it ended with something being thrown against the
wall or him saying rude things to you although you knew he didn’t mean it. It
all was hard to handle, considering the fact that you had to work all day long
on set of Mr. Robot. Rami himself got a supporting role for you and was very
excited about the fact that he could spend more time with you now. It went very good for a while, but then he
know if it was all the stress that lasted on his shoulders, making him the
person you didn’t want him to be. Being the main character of a TV show had
also his disadvantages. He barely slept or ate, he was constantly on set in
contrast to you. Nevertheless, you were there with him although you had not to,
only to support him, saying encouraging words to him or giving him a nice
massage during his breaks.
Rami always pushed you away, telling you not to get on his nerves, breaking
your heart every single time. But you tried to stay strong. You tried to save
your relationship because you felt it was falling apart. There was too much
love for him in your heart to let him slip out of your finger tips. But not
only had you noticed this change. Also his co- workers. Christian, Carly,
Portia wondered what happened to the lovely couple that always laughed together
or fooled around. You couldn’t tell. Because you didn’t even know why.
have been a wonderful night but again it ended up the both of you fighting. He
came home earlier today and the only thing you wanted to do was to spend a
little bit time with him, since work was always in the way. You didn’t mean anything
bad, just wanting to watch some movies together and cuddle on the couch. He
told you no but you insisted, making him angrier every second.
It came to
the point where he unexpectedly threw you favorite vase against the wall,
making your body flinch of his sudden burst out. “God damn it, (Y/N)! I said
no!” You looked at the ground, the wonderful porcelain was shattered into
pieces. You sighed, already being used to him damaging the things that meant a
lot to you. You wanted to avoid this fight being continued so you walked to
him, talking to him with a calming voice. “It’s okay, Ram. I’m sorry.” But it
didn’t make it any better. Instead, he freaked out even more. “You know I hate
it when you call me that stupid name! Stop it, just stop it!” His face showed
nothing but anger, his normally green eyes darkened, making him more
intimidating. You had never seen him before in such a state.
You said quietly. “I only wanted…” But he interrupted you. “You know what?! I
don’t even know why I’m wasting my time with such an annoying woman like
you!” He went to grab his jacket,
putting it on. “Even if you died right the second, I wouldn’t give a shit about
it! No one would! Because you’re nothing to everyone. The people who you call
your friends would show up to your funeral because they would feel obligated,
and leave as early as possible. That’s what you are. You’re annoying, dumb and
pathetic!” With that he slammed the door behind him, leaving the apartment you
were sharing with him.
there, totally petrified and shocked. You never felt so humiliated in your
life. Not only he had insulted you, no he also confronted you with your worst
fear. He used your weak point against you. You were always afraid that nobody
would like you or care for you, leaving you alone. After what Rami said, you
wondered if he was right.
down your face and you burst into crying. Your heart wrenched in your chest and
you fell down on your knees, crying your eyes out. What had you done to deserve
his harsh words? You never wanted any harm. Why was he so mean to you? Slowly,
but still crying, you turned off the TV which was on during your argument and
strolled to your bedroom. You laid down and continued sharing tears until there
was no one left.
A few days
had passed after your fight and Rami and you hadn’t talked to each other since
then. You hadn’t even appeared on set although you were needed. Everyone became
concerned, asking Rami where you had been but he only shrugged, mumbling that
he wouldn’t know. Also he was very down, regretting every single word he told
to you. He couldn’t explain what was going on in him that moment. He never
wanted to hurt you. He loved you so much.
stomped out of your apartment, he went to his brother to stay there for a few
days. He wanted to clear his mind, but ended up crying on his brother’s
shoulder. He couldn’t sleep the night long and this continued the next days.
Dark bags were visible under his eyes and his face was very pale. He was very
was very worried about his state, so he walked towards him as Rami took a
break. He noticed that he wasn’t in a good mood for days. Taking a bottle of
water, Christian sat down next to the heart-broken boy. “Hey, are you okay?” He
asked. Rami only shrugged his shoulders. “Dunno.” He mumbled. “I haven’t seen
(Y/N) for a while,” Christian continued. “Is she alright?” Rami sat there
totally still and suddenly his eyes began to fill with tears and his lower lip
quivered. He laid his face in his hand and began sobbing. “I really don’t
know!” Christian looked at him with pure shock. He instantly laid his arm
around his shoulders, trying to soothe him.
what happened? Why are you crying?” Meanwhile, Rami’s burst out gained
everyone’s attention. They shared perplexed glances, wondering what had brought
the young man to this state. “I broke her heart, Christian!” Rami hiccupped. “I
was mean to her!” Christian stared at him sympathetically before he wrapped his
arms around the young man’s fragile body, offering him the comfort that his
friend needed. “I’m the worst boyfriend on earth! God, I hate myself!” Rami
not true.” Christian assured him. “Everyone here knows how much (Y/N) loves
you. We all see the shining in her eyes when you’re around her. You may made a
mistake, but that won’t stop her from loving you. I don’t know what happened
between you during the last weeks but I saw that she tried to fight for your
relationship. Although you pushed her away, she always found a way back to you.
(Y/N) is lovely young woman and I know how happy she makes you so please do me
a favor and don’t let her go.” Christian patted his head brotherly. “Now move
your ass and save that what’s needed to be saved. Go and get your girl.” Rami
wiped his tears away and the men offered a smile to each other.
It was late
in the evening as you sat on the couch, watching TV while eating your favorite
ice cream. You made yourself comfortable in your pajamas and your body was wrapped
with a thick blanket. You tried to avoid anything that remembered you of your
boyfriend who didn’t talk to you for days. You even had no idea where he was
staying, he never came back since the argument. Probably he found shelter by
his brother or friends. Honestly, you were worried if he ever would come back.
had not shown up on set for days, telling Sam Esmail that you did not feel very
well and apologized for your absent. You also pleaded him to tell nobody about
this which sounded really weird to him. Hopefully he did not tell anyone. It
also would be useless to be at the same place as Rami and weird with all the
tension between you and him.
You took a
spoonful of the vanilla flavored ice cream and were about to take it in your
mouth as you heard the front door being unlocked. Your heart raced rapidly when
you saw Rami entering the apartment, carrying a big bouquet of red roses in his
hands. You laid your ice cream on the table in front of you and raised your
body from the couch.
around and your eyes made contact to his for the first time after your fight.
You did not know what to say and how to react. You were too shocked right now.
You never expected him to show up.
your body from head to toe and tears welled up his eyes. Your eyes were puffy
and your nose was red. It seemed like you had not left the apartment for days,
which was true. Although you looked
horrible right now, you were still the most beautiful woman he had ever laid his
eyes on. God, what had he done?
croaked, not knowing what to say. He wanted to speak but his voice gave up.
Neither you nor he had the strength to say something. You only stood there
silently. It was a horrible silence. You wanted it to end. You wanted to feel
you ran towards him and engulfed your arms firmly around his body. You buried
your face in the crook of his neck as tiny sobs escaped your mouth. Rami leaned
himself into your welcoming embrace, pressing your warm bodies together.
“Rami…” You cried, relieved that he was there. He caressed your soft hair and
kissed your head many times as if it was the last time you would see each
(Y/N).” He mumbled against your head. “I’m really sorry. Please forgive me…”
You pulled away from him but put his face between your hands, kissing every
single of his tears away. “Don’t worry about it.” You smiled encouragingly.
“I’ll always forgive you.” You placed your lips on his and kissed him softly.
“Because I love you…” You added. “So much.”
He laid his
hands on yours and stroked your knuckles with his thumbs. Then, as he wanted to
give you the bouquet, something drew his attention. His eyes widened in shock
and his mouth hung open as he saw the freshly red marks on your forearm. You
looked at him questioningly and followed his gaze that fell on your forearm.
Instantly, you cheeks began to redden and you felt ashamed. Rami traced the red
lines with his fingers carefully, a guilty expression was plastered on his
bad. You should have covered it better but you had no idea that he would show
up. “Rami… I can explain…” You stuttered. He only shook his head. “I never
meant to harm you, (Y/N).” He said, still caressing your red marks. “It’s my
fault this happened. Only my fault.” You pulled him into another hug, as he
cried again. “I could have prevented this… I’m so sorry…”
not, Rami… I did this myself.” “But I
lead you to it.” You patted his head. “My love, it doesn’t matter. It was my
choice to hurt myself.” “I’m sorry,
(Y/N). Please give me another chance and I promise you will not regret this. I
will make you forget the last weeks.” You offered him a smile.
Over its long history the Egyptians employed a wide variety of ancient weapons. During the earliest periods stone and wood weapons were used, these early Egyptian weapons included slings, clubs, throwing sticks, stone maces and stone tipped spears. Horn and wooden bows were also constructed and used with stone tipped arrows.
By 4000 BC the Egyptians had started importing obsidian from the Eastern Red Sea areas for their weapons. This glass like stone has properties that allow it to have a sharper point than the sharpest metals; these almost molecularly thin blades are used even today for scalpels.
By the time upper and lower Egypt were first united and their society coalesced around 3150 BC, the Egyptians had already been using bronze weapons. They used bronze for spearheads, axes and maces. It was also during this period that the composite bow came into use, made with horn and wood. Over the following centuries as the Pharaoh’s dominated ancient Egyptian society they began to standardize weapons, stock pile arsenals and borrow weapons systems from invading peoples. Eventually these weapons developed into the quintessential Egyptian weapons discussed below.
The bow long remained the main armament of Egyptian forces throughout Egypt’s long military history; perhaps due to the lack of armor worn by Egyptian warriors and their enemies in the hot climate where they operated. Most archers were foot soldiers however Egyptian chariots also carried them. Archers provided range to the chariot warriors, and when range and speed were combined the chariot mounted archers became dominate figures on the ancient battlefields. Nubian mercenaries often served as foot archers and are said to have been their best bowmen.
The Sickle Sword or Khopesh is probably the most iconic of the Egyptian weapons. It features a curved, thick blade and measured about two feet long. A khopesh has a thick, crescent shaped blade that is used for slashing. There are several styles of this wicked weapon, and one very well designed style that combines the advantages of both of them. Basically one style has a hook on the end that is used for grabbing people, their weapons or shields and the other variety has a point on the end that can be used for stabbing. The hybrid type has both a point and a hook on it, and this can be used to pull an opponent’s shield down then thrust (stab) the end of the khopesh into their face. There is nothing nice about a Khopesh, it leaves nasty wounds and looks vicious.
Another weapon that the Egyptians developed with a uniquely Egyptian style was the battle axe. Their crescent shaped blades were affixed into grooves on long handles. This was a weaker connection than the axes made by their contemporaries that featured a hole through the axe head that the handle fit through, but it served their purpose of slashing unarmored troops and hacking through the hide covered, wood framed shields used at the time. However, once they met the Sea-peoples and the Hyskos they found their axes to be inadequate and changed their design. Egyptian axes could be used for hacking or be thrown.
The second largest contingent in an Egyptian army (after the bowmen) was the spearmen. Spears are cheap and it takes little training for levy soldiers to figure out how to use them. Charioteers also carried spears as secondary weapons and to keep enemy infantry from getting to close. Similar to arrowheads Egyptian spears progressed through stone, obsidian, copper and finally iron stages.
The Egyptians must have had a place in their heart for this weak little weapon (weak compared to bows and slings). A throwing stick was essentially a boomerang that didn’t come back. Perhaps it stuck around as long as it did because it was a cheap secondary weapon for infantry troops. Although a throwing stick was unlikely to kill anyone it could have also been used to distract an enemy during melee combat. While one guy throws a stick at your face another guy would stab you in the gut, that kind of thing. Famously, they were also used for hunting waterfowl along the Nile, even by Pharaohs.
Chariots represent more of an Egyptain weapons platform than an actual weapon in itself; however, chariots became indispensable to the Egyptian armies. The Egyptians built fast, light chariots and would use them to race into position shower their enemies with arrows and retreat before a counter attack could be launched. These strikes would demoralize an enemy army, making them feel helpless against further attacks. Egyptian chariots carried a driver and an archer and were assembled at the battlefield.
155. This is really weird, but I always pictured Percy having a younger sister (from a different mother) who is blonde and is descended from both Egyptian and Greek. She’s basically a magician like Carter and Sadie, but her Greek magic she inherited from Poseidon causes her magic to affect herself and others differently. She has a hand mirror given to her by Hecate that belonged to the Egyptain goddes Hathor (Egyptian version of a mix of Hera/Aphrodite) and Iris. The spirit in the mirror is named Akkiki, and he annoys the heck out of Mr. D and Chiron, because he pops up in every mirror everywhere.
WORK IN PROGRESS: Lilith and The Night Demons, A Demonolatry Hierarchy
WORK IN PROGRESS
To begin, allow me to point out this post and document, is a work in progress. It was made to establish a possible demonic hierarchy either for work or worship. However, from the ferocity of these beings, The Night and Evening Spirits, and reasons they were avoided, it might make sense to say honoring them so that they would not come near is initially advisable. Granted, for demonolatry, this may open a new layer to approach things. Caution initially is advised. Lilith is a figure of power, and primal energy, as are the other figures mentioned.
This isn’t to say that honoring or worship is bad. It’s better to be well versed somewhat before doing something, especially with these entities.
I initially approached Lilith early on, almost directly when I started magic work. She’s been honored by me since. Yet, I did research. However, on to the material.
Lilith - Mother of Various Demons, Primal, Passionate Entity Name may derive from ‘Lil’ a type of Semitic Demon, and ‘Lil’ meaning Evening. In The Context of another term dealing with Lil Demons, ‘Zaqiqu’ or ‘soul’ gives the term a feeling of a hollow space or wind, a phantom. The word ‘Itud’ has Lunar connotations, and other words that sound similar ‘lulu’ or Lascivious and ‘lalu’, abundant, also give a feel to Lilith. Interesting as well ‘Lilu’ also refers to a type of sheep, which may have to do with goat, and possible, phallic energy connotations, since sheep seem to wander around in large numbers and goats with the horns, symbolizing power, may make some points as well. In another draft, I make reference to the Burney Relief and Arslan Tash Amulets, how while the image is not likely Lilith, it may link to Ereshkigal and Night, Evening, Underworld connections.
Possibly Connected Powerful Entities Ereshkigal - Goddess Of The Underworld, Linked through Animal and Energy Associations. Once one entered her realm, one was not allowed to leave. Most likely form upon the Burney Relief.
Lamashtu, Deity Demoness who also devoured Children and Acted Of Her Own Will Without divine command, animal associations indicate power. Her form involved winged features and Lion Features as well, as associations with traditionally ‘unclean animals’.
The ‘Lil’ Spirits and Demons, Mainly Summerian, Akkadian Background Lilu , Lili, Male Demons That ‘Wander And Rage Across The Plains’ Lilitu, Female Equivalent of Lilu Ardat Lilitu, Female Demon, Is able to Take The Form of a Woman like a Maiden of Age to Be Married. This Age Also may lead to the form of a prostitute or harlot. Vardat Lilitu? May be the Same As Ardat Lilitu with spelling variation. Wiki says ‘paramour of lili’, possibly indicating These two demons have relations.
With some of the words presented earlier, the meaning of some of the names could very well be linked to wind, omens, demons, evening, borders of a type, phantoms, disdain.
They are said to possess men, eat or wound men and newborn children and cause epilepsy, while wandering at night.
Possible Derivative of Lil spirits and Demons Kisikillilla, Kisikilillake These where mentioned under Lilu spirits and demons in The Assyrian Dictionary Of The University Of Chicago. They enter the rooms of men at night. Also Phantom and Wind Like Spirits. The Lil in the name links them to the Lil spirits mentioned above, rather than Hebrew words that would link to Lilith. Associated with Owls and Serpents, which are associated with Lilith and offspring. The Later of the Two Names was the spirit Gilgamesh Encountered. Wiki mentions possible translation ‘Ki-Sikil’ as sacred place, ‘lil’ as spirit, ‘lil-la-ke’ as water spirit. However, Lil means evening, spirit, and could easily have connotations as a spirit of a sacred place that dwells at night. As for the animals, they also have an underworld connotation, and an unclean reference in Isaiah, where Lilith is mentioned.
Lulila? Mentioned in an entry with Kisikillilla and with Lilu in the Assyrian Dictionary of The University Of Chicago. However, this could mean multiple things. Lu could refer to Bull, Lion, or Being Alone. In the context of these spirits wandering in evening or night, this could be a powerful spirit, that either leads or is solitary. Research is required.
Hebrew Terms For Night Demons and Spirits, In terms of Closeness Or Frequency of appearance with entomology for Lilith
Lilim, Hebrew Term for Female Demons, As Well As Night spirits. Lilim is also the name for the daughter of Lilith. These spirits may be with Shedim. They wander at night. They focus on Newborn Males.
Shedim is the Hebrew Term for Demon. Specifically Demons of A Serpentine Origin connected to Adam and Lilith. These demons are said to have claws and feet of roosters.
Similar Spirits Needing Research Galu, Alu
Spirits Derived Later On Lamia, Succubus, Incubus
The Ancient Underworld and Night Spirits, Where Evening overlapped with the Under World Perhaps first and foremost it would be appropriate to take a look at various animals mentioned above. The Burney Relief depicts Owls and Lions. A passage from Isaiah places Lilith with Owls, Satyrs or Goats and Jackals. There are other animals depicted in various translations of the passage, but in general, they appear to be linked with ‘unclean animals’. So, what is unclean? It could be something forbidden to eat, something that transmits disease, or perhaps, connected with death and darkness.
There are also implications of phallic creatures with the Goat or Satyr, which may link to Lilith and her lust. The Horns should also be taken into account with signs of power. The Lion, is a symbol of power. Let us also look at the Arslan Tash Amulets, and for the time, suggest they are legitimate, even though there is disputation. The She-Wolf with a stinger is a symbol representing Lilith. The wolf is a pack animal, and in some cases a scavenger. Let us link the wolf to the jackal, briefly. If we look at Egyptain Mythology, are not two Jackal Deities linked to the afterlife and underworld? Guardians as well.
If wolves in this context, are predatory, it may be a stretch but perhaps the Lil demons worked in packs at night or evening, going into houses for men and children and rampaging across the plains.
The underworld, commonly had to do with the dead. It was literally a realm beneath the earth, not a hell. Yet we may get the notes that from the concept of Hades, The Duat, Irkalla, the underworld was not pleasant. It was dark, dull, perhaps there was fire, but there were odd creatures, probably disease and unclean creatures depending on where you were. Helheim in Norse Mythology is not that bad, but there is indeed a dullness, a somberness. The Light in the underworld, may be comparable to an evening light, there isn’t a lot of natural light, but there is not a lot of darkness either. Underworld spirits, could either be the supernatural or the dead that did not end in the higher after life somehow.
At the time of evening, strange winds might be sensed in the dimness, forms dancing, referencing the Zaqiqu term again of a phantom or empty soul wind. These could have come across travelers at night or evening, and then moved into houses without being seen, then feasting on victims or causing orgasms and spawning more spirits possibly and draining energy.
Additional Terminology, possibly related.
Ittu means Omen or Sign, which may tie into the name. In a name, Lil and Ittu could mean night border, for example or night omen. See Itu below. Itu means border, this also may be connected.
Lillutu means foolishness, and while it may be a long shot, I feel that it almost links to Lilith in that she was possibly called foolish for how she acted. I say this as the word and the name sound similar. More research is needed in this.
However, Lulanu, which may be Lillu, also brings out weak or half-wit, possibly, possibly showing disdain once again. Perhaps this is incorrect, perhaps, perhaps, these spirits are wild that the words are similar as insults. This needs more research and is not certain.
