self provoke

Note to self: Don't provoke the Dragon

A little backstory: My party is going to retrieve a necklace for a woman and when we got to the town, we met a Druid and he told us that there’s a young adult green dragon in the center of town. So we go and decide to fight it. I am a bronze dragon born paladin and march right up to the lair of the dragon.

Me: “Aye yo dragon where you at?”
Dragon: -laughs-
Me: “Get out here I wanna fight!”

After provoking the dragon a few more times my party’s sorcerer whacks me in the head and the fight began.

During the fight I fall unconscious and then immediately wake back up. We did manage to kill the dragon after our monk punched it in the face.

Masterlist

You and the boys were sprawled out on the lawn of the courtyard relaxing after class. This week, all of your schedules were filled with free periods due to the three day long talent show of sorts that your school put on every year before break. All of these free periods meant more time with your boys, which you greatly appreciated. Everyone was grateful for the easy week, with a few exceptions.

You mentioned you couldn’t remember it it in another post so here’s the moment in Case 3 where Momo calls Ouma “pure”! 

Thank you so much for providing the caps! I definitely don’t remember every single word or line in the school trials (I’ve watched many of them for hours straight until about 4 in the morning and my sleeping habits haven’t been the best lately), so having screencaps and/or transcriptions always helps a lot!

Now that you’ve provided the caps, I do remember this scene again! Even this early into the game, Ouma loves dropping plenty of hints that he’s not nearly as bad as he’d like people to think.

did you see this? tv3(.)ie/xpose/article/entertainment-news/236666/Louis-Tomlinsons-battery-hearing-delayed "He had initially been expected to appear in court on 29 March (17), but that hearing was rescheduled to Wednesday (12Apr17), and now authorities have postponed it again as they are still deciding whether or not to formally press charges. A new date has yet to be revealed."

I hadn’t seen that one, but it was taken from the Elounor article in the Daily Mail earlier.  It goes along with what @lawyerlarrie was saying - they’ve got way more important things to do than mess with this, so it’s falling down on the priority list.

He had initially been expected to appear in court on 29 March (17), but that hearing was rescheduled to Wednesday (12Apr17), and now authorities have postponed it again as they are still deciding whether or not to formally press charges. A new date has yet to be revealed.

“A filing decision will not be made today,” a spokesperson for the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office tells the MailOnline. “Our prosecutors are still reviewing the case.”

Louis has yet to personally address the dispute, but his attorney, Martin Singer, insisted his client acted in self-defence.

“The paparazzi provoked and caused the altercation that occurred with Louis,” Singer stated following the 25-year-old’s arrest on 3 March (17). “It’s not the first time that a paparazzi has created an altercation with a celebrity.

"While the altercation was going on with the paparazzi, three other individuals were attacking his girlfriend during this incident and he came to her defense.”

BAD HOUSE

The astrological houses are fields of experience and departments of life. A BAD HOUSE warps the positive qualities of each house, and they are as follows:

1st House: The I Am, I Exist House; defining the personal identity is highest priority, and consumes energy, which makes them unaware of anything but themselves; selfishly approaches life ‘me’ first; singular vantage point distorts objectivity and awareness.

2nd House: The to Have and to Hold House; the importance of material value and property accumulation is overemphasized resulting in gripping greed; the objects own and control you; difficulty in letting go of personal possessions and private grudges.

3rd House: The Shallow House; overstated need for mental activity without want for application or use; ceaseless import and export of communication; nearsighted view of tomorrow lacking direction; concerned with the new and the now.

4th House: The House of Nostalgia; thin-skinned about home and domestic life, as well as the family heritage and cherished traditions; need for privacy produces painstaking introversion, shyness and shame; outsized appetite for sentimental creature comforts.  

5th house: The Liberal Leisure House; high desire to keep retain a lighthearted level of amusement and to be at the center of attention; focused on recreations, and with being and staying entertained; trouble taking things seriously.

6th house: The Type A House; skepticism and separateness provoke substantial self-criticism resulting in anxiety and sickness; inhibited expressions produce imbalances in life; hyper-concerned with the body, prone to self-abuse by overthinking, undervaluing, and mistreating.

7th House: The People Pleasing House; prone to pathological niceness and conflict avoidance; overly concerned with being the good guy or gal; interdependence causes reliance on one-to-one pairings and partnerships; a lack of identity and independence.

8th House: The House of Justice; power struggles result in insecurity about strength of will; efforts spent storing secrets and using them to control self and others; unhealthy emphasis on sexuality and dominating through psychological manipulation.

9th House: The Far-Out House; farsightedness makes it difficult relating to others intimately; stresses the importance of personal opinions and ideas; disproportionately frivolous attitude and reckless behavior results in chronic irresponsibility; constant movement and mayhem.

10th House: The Tactical House; overly concerned with the reputation and of being recognized; business and self-centered perspective that results in sterilized and carefully controlled associations; troubled by anything less than the perfect professional persona.  

11th House: The Disconnected House; consumed with personal visions and dreams; overemphasizes the need to be different which forces distance between self and society; impartial and impersonal connections; irregularity, rigidity, and unreasonableness in relating.

12th House: The House of Ruin; inherited habits are enacted to escape the ego and reality, squashing self-confidence; strength of planets is powerfully diluted, leading to confusion and repression; subliminal obstacles restrict personal growth and self-expression.  

Archer is a formidable warlord

It is best to look at the UBW arc to analyze his full potential. Archer is by far the only character who seems to almost perfectly utilize the philosophy of power and war to achieve his goals.

Understands his allies

At the beginning of the story he identifies Rin as the best master he could possibly wish for. This is not merely to endear Rin and gain her affection or loyalty. (as i.e. Rider did in Fate/Zero) It is a genuine sentiment on his behalf, because by understanding the strong sides of Rin’s character, he instantly understood her usefulness, her limits, and how far he can push her to attain victory. He celebrated his and her mutual compatibility, as it is always better for allies to understand each other intuitively on the battlefield. 

Keeps his plans to himself

And in regard to Rin, he does in fact end up covertly relying on her strengths despite openly betraying her. He predicts Rin’s moves, knows she has a willful and courageous character, and expects her to survive. And where she fails to protect herself, he provides her with a chance of escape, without compromising his own position. He understands that for his plans to succeed, no one should be made aware of them, not even the closest of allies. If possible, it is best to keep everyone in the dark, by either hiding the truth or giving out false truths. This allows him to stay in full control of the situation.

Probes his opponents for weaknesses

Archer almost never misses a chance to extract information from those around him, be it either through blatant stalking of allies, or be it by provoking his enemies into a fight to understand their temper, or be it by allying with his enemies to gather intelligence inside their own camp.

Keeps his arsenal and talents hidden

In the very first instance of battle, Archer begins by revealing only one of his swords, until he is pushed by Lancer to reveal his second sword, subsequently revealing his ability to project them endlessly. His opponents as well allies become aware of his bow much further in the story, of his shield even further, and of his reality marble closer to the end of the story. When asked who he is, he continues to call himself a “bowman” despite being a mage. When expected to use his bow he uses his swords, and when expected to use his swords he uses his bow. Instead of flaunting his abilities and preferences like Gilgamesh did, Archer puts a lot of effort into concealing them, thus he transforms himself into an enigma keeping his enemies constantly off-balance, as this way they can never predict his moves and must constantly remain on the defensive.

Uses selective honesty to disarm his enemies

By performing a colorful spectacle right in front of Caster, in which he openly betrays Rin and offers his loyalty to an enemy, Archer thus masterfully leads Caster into a trap. People are less likely to suspect you when you offer them generous gifts. In this case, Archer’s gift to Caster was the elimination of Rin from the Grail War. And even though Caster remained suspicious of Archer further in the story, her suspicion wasn’t strong enough to foresee Archer backstabbing her with an entire cloud of swords.

Avoids battles when battles can or should be avoided

Archer does not engage in fights which have little strategic value. Every move her makes on the battlefield is to either test his enemies to understand their weaknesses, or to manipulate his enemies and allies into a particular outcome that could benefit him in the long run of the war.

Appeals to everyone’s own self-interest

In the event of betraying Rin, he appealed to Caster’s self-interest, so he could enter Caster’s camp as well as so to protect Rin’s life. In the event of kidnapping Rin, he appealed to Shinji’s self-interest to prevent him from raping Rin. In the event of distracting Caster, he appealed to Lancer’s self-pride to provoke him into a spectacular battle, one that had to be broadcast to Caster, to further bring down her guard.

All of these things, and more…

… can be found in all classical works on war and power, such as Machiavelli’s, Sun Tzu’s, and Clausewitz’. Archer is a formidable warlord, for as far as Fate characters go. And even though his motivations change throughout the story as he keeps jumping between the good and evil within him, keeps changing the value of his ideals and the value of Rin’s and Shiro’s lives, he nevertheless continues to employ what was successfully tested by armies of political leaders and warlords of the past.

Reclaim Your Blame: A Shadow Work Exercise

NOTE: This exercise is not intended to attribute the faults of others to oneself. It is a means of reflecting on your own projections and revealing why certain experiences and the behavior of others trigger you in the way they do. Bear in mind I am no authority on this topic. The views expressed in this article are based on my personal experiences, cumulative beliefs, and independent research. Always heed to my guidance at your own discretion.


This is an exercise I’ve been doing for quite sometime now, before I even realized it was what is considered “shadow work”. It can be done at any time, in the heat of the moment or in retrospect. 

The Objective

The purpose of this exercise is not to beat yourself up or blame yourself for anything, it is simply to retract the judgment you place on others and analyze how it reflects the way you feel about yourself subconsciously or the aspects of your subconscious that need attention.

I’d like to stress that even if there is truth to an accusation, that doesn’t make it exempt from this exercise. The fact that we acknowledge truth isn’t what poses the problem, it’s how we process it– it’s how we react to the truths we acknowledge that sheds light on our subconscious tendencies.

The Method

When you find yourself pointing your finger at someone for something or blaming others for how you feel, reclaim that accusation. Contemplate what aspects of yourself are eliciting an unpleasant reaction to what someone else said, did, didn’t do, what have you. If you dig deep enough, you will find that in every accusation is a faint reflection of yourself. 

The points to keep in mind while doing this exercise are:

the catalyst- the external experience that triggered you,

the reaction- the feeling the catalyst evoked, 

the accusation- the way in which you imposed your reaction on the other.

Essentially, you want to discover the aspects of your own condition that are being reflected in the overall experience. Consider the various factors at play. Engage in a series of questions in order to dig to the bottom of things. This may take some time, but eventually you should be able to unearth a core issue.

Personal Example

I’m not going to walk through a whole line of questioning as I normally would, but I will elaborate what I’ve discovered about myself through this particular accusation, which will hopefully give you a basic idea of the mechanics of this exercise. 

Sometimes my partner does not cater to my needs as I expect (i.e. think I deserve). This often triggers a feeling of being undervalued, which ultimately translates to anger and frustration. I then feel compelled to accuse him of being inconsiderate and selfish.

What I have found in regards to this example is that I commonly experience an underlying theme in my relationships (romantic especially) in which I feel I’m not treated the way I should be or as well as I treat the other person. I tend to pour a great deal of my energy into my relationships, leaving almost nothing for myself, so when the other doesn’t provide sufficient support to bridge that gap, I feel I’m being cheated… because after all, “I put so much forth. Why shouldn’t I get the same in return?” *self-pitying sobs*

It ultimately comes down to me being negligent of the basic needs that I could very well provide myself, such as respect, consideration, and integrity. This serves as a poor foundation for my sense of self-worth, which provokes me to compensate by seeking external validation. I [subconsciously] look to others to make up for what I neglect (or don’t know how to) provide for myself. But this only creates a self-perpetuating cycle. I over-extend myself in order to [unnecessarily] accommodate others so as to ensure that I receive their approval. When I don’t see that I’m getting the desired validation, I get upset and feel as if I am being undervalued. In fact, I am being undervalued, but not necessarily by others– I am undervaluing myself by not taking the initiative to cultivate this sense of validation internally. 

In a way, I’m actually being the very things I’m accusing others of being. I am being selfish because I am treating them as a means to compensate for my own internal deficit, as a way to feel better about myself. I am being inconsiderate in the sense that I am not stopping to consider (or forwardly ask) why they don’t adhere to my standards of behavior before immediately blaming them for “hurting my feelings”– they may not be fully aware of my expectations, how to fulfill them, or they may be in a place that renders them incapable of doing so, but it doesn’t necessarily mean they are inconsiderate and selfish, or that they don’t love or appreciate me. Overall, I am disregarding their individuality. I am being insensitive to the other’s internal condition and any unseen factors that may be influencing them not to provide the quality of support I expect. 

So I’ve identified a pattern in my reactions– I feel undervalued (which poses a threat to my big stupid stereotypical Leo ego), then anger takes over as a means of defense, and finally I begin displacing the blame onto those I have relationships with. If this accusation is left unchecked, then the distance grows. I recede from the other because they reflect parts of myself Ego doesn’t like to acknowledge. But Shadow is still there, behind Ego, flailing its arms back and forth trying to show me how to resolve it, hence the continued pattern. 

The impression that I undervalue myself and that as a result I can be selfish and inconsiderate as a means to compensate is the core issue that I need to tackle from here.

The Premise 

When we focus solely on how others are to blame for our mental/emotional flares, we are diverting focus from the aspects of ourselves that are calling for awareness. Doing this habitually will ultimately cultivate recurring reactions that will be aroused and reinforced by various unrelated encounters, molding our perspectives and influencing our emotions in a way that perpetuates the experience of feeling [blank] so as to eventually draw conscious attention to our internal afflictions.

Reclaiming the blame (or perception) we impose on others allows us to use it as a mirror and discover the underlying issues that spur the reaction experienced, paving the way for us to reconcile ourselves and thus neutralize said reaction. 

Accept Who You Are

Pairing: Peter Pan x Reader

Words:1,394

(warning: sexual tendencies at the end)

“Do you really think I’d want a girl creating havoc on my island?” Pan argues, “I tried bringing you back, (Y/N).” He steps forward, lowering his voice, “But every time I drop you off in the middle of who knows where, the Shadow has to find you and bring you back!” His voice echoes as we stand close to the edge of the cliff.

It’s true, every time I’m dropped off in the middle of cities in the dark skies, the shadow appears as soon as Pan leaves.

I step forward, “Then why do you always blame this on me! I never wanted to come here, I could’ve made it on my own out there!” My voice shaking in anger, I scoff, “I’m so tired of all of the unnecessary chores you made me do. Wash all of the lost boys’ clothes? I’m no ones mother.”

Pan steps forward, “How dare you talk to me in the way you just did.”

With the growl in his voice intensely scaring me, I back up, not knowing where I’m going. As the noises of the Neverland creatures sounding in the night covering the silence, Pan continues to step forward with his loathful eyes piercing into mine as I reach the edge of the cliff. I look behind me, only to see my heels hanging over the edge and large waves crashing into the wall 50 feet below me.

I look back up at Pan, who’s half a foot away from me as I say, “I-I’m going to jump.”

“Do it.”

He was magnificent, and there’s no doubt in saying he fascinated me, but it was in a way where I’d rather stare at him than any brightly lit, night sky. It was in a way where I’d rather read him than any self-provoking book. He was someone who I would spend my life figuring out if it meant I got to be in his presence at all, and that’d be the best part; being there for him, even if I was struggling.
