Chapter 3 is up, folks! Please read and review!

Synopsis:

Mei-ling Zhou, after being successfully “defrosted”, now has to come to terms with a new world, and an even newer Overwatch. As if the shock of it all isn’t enough, Overwatch is desperate for new members to join their not entirely legal ranks, and with so much of their reputation tarnished by the omnic crisis, volunteers are at an all time low.

Jamison “Junkrat” Fawkes is a worldwide criminal, infamous in every sense of the word. There’s not a store he won’t rob, a motor he won’t jack, or a team of “heroes” he won’t be reluctantly recruited into. Though it appears he’s left the horrors of his irradiated childhood behind him, nobody really knows if it’s pain or madness (or both) that lurks behind those soot-covered eyes.

With the world now in a new state of chaos and disorder, from omnic rights to the looming threat of Talon waiting to strike, can these two heroes, war-torn in separate but not unequal ways, overcome their differences and work together for a common goal: a world that anyone, no matter what, can be free to live as themselves?

Hi, I was wandering if you could offer me some advice? So I've started an exercise program and diet to lose weight. It's been about six weeks and I've lost seven pounds. But here's the thing. My waist and the scales are in total disagreement. I've gone up a dress size. It's really frustrating. I thought maybe the scales was a fluke. But I checked again the next week and I was still losing. Someone needs to give my tummy the update.

Hey dear,

The only reason I can think of that could cause this would be bloating. When we start a new routine, our bodies get kind of shocked and will do things like retain water and bloat. As your body adjusts to these changes, the bloating and water retention will sort itself out. 

Horoscope - Aug 25 2016

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Don’t ask questions today unless you want to hear the unvarnished truth. The answers you receive may not be what you expect, but you must listen to the response even if it triggers a difficult conversation. Although you might be surprised or even shocked by what you learn, assimilating the new information will open your eyes. Slipping into denial can appear to be the easier route but, unfortunately, won’t lead you to your desired destination. Knowledge is power.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You’re on the lookout for something radically different today, whether it’s an idea that frees you from your regular thinking patterns or an unconventional person who stretches your sense of normalcy. However, your outrageous behavior comes with a cost; if you take your rebellion too far, you will be stopped in your tracks when the Moon opposes karmic Saturn. Moderating your response before you’re in over your head is wiser than dealing with the fallout after the fact.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You could feel like you’re a ship without a rudder today as the currents pull you one way and then another. You don’t seem to be able to control your direction even if you know which way you want to go. But instead of exhausting yourself by fighting against the prevailing winds, it’s smarter to save your energy until it can serve your purpose. In the meantime, enjoy the ride. You won’t know where you might land until the tides begin to shift. Thankfully, they will ultimately carry you back home.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

People may question your current choices, but you’re not likely to reveal your motives now. You have your reasons for pursuing the road less traveled while quietly working on your own agenda. However, your decisions are yours alone and you don’t want to talk about them until you are more confident about your new direction. Nevertheless, pushing against your discomfort by sharing your unfinished plans with a potential supporter can be the catalyst you need to jolt you into action.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

No matter how much money you make these days, you have your eye on additional sources of income now. However, putting your plan into motion may be more complicated than it seems in your fantasies. Although you might run into an obstacle or even a setback, meeting the current challenges demonstrates your strength of purpose. Don’t settle for less than you’re capable of as you take the external resistance in stride. Continue to show up with your irrepressible light and shine it to the best of your ability.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

It feels as if you have only one chance to get it right today when it comes to a career decision. Opportunities abound, but there is a personal price to pay for avoiding a domestic responsibility. Take your time and reconsider your priorities; there’s nothing wrong with choosing work over home and family as long as it’s a conscious choice. Discuss your options with your most trusted companions. However, answers will not arrive in the form of good advice; they will only be revealed now as inner truths.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your hidden desires can leak out into the open as the whimsical Gemini Moon prompts you to talk first and think later. You might say something in a totally casual or even sarcastic manner today, but it doesn’t matter once the cat is out of the bag. Your comments may be problematic at first if others overreact to your disclosure. But don’t back down or try to minimize your truth. Although a heartfelt discussion is necessary before emotions settle down again, you will ultimately feel relieved once your secret is told. Sometimes honesty is the best gift you can give.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Your financial decisions may raise someone’s eyebrows today, but probably not because you’re spending too much. In fact, others might see you as stingier than you actually are. If cash is tight, make sure you’re not overreacting by being penny wise and pound foolish. Fortunately, modifying your budget now can produce lasting positive effects while the Moon is reflecting on Saturn and Mars in your 2nd House of Personal Resources. Nevertheless, remember Bob Marley’s last words, “Money can’t buy life.”

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

The same people who normally give you the best advice seem to be talking out of both sides of their mouths today. You can’t get a simple answer to a straightforward question from anyone now that the loquacious Gemini Moon is hijacking your 7th House of Relationships. However, it’s not everyone else who is unclear now; it’s most likely your indecision that creates the ambiguity. Listen to your own internal discussion; if you want to achieve greatness, stop asking others for permission.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

There are so many tasks to complete today that you just want to walk away from it all. Ironically, you can finish everything in a timely fashion, but the more you think about all there is to do, the more your frustration impedes your productivity. The only way to break this vicious cycle is to consciously shift your frame of reference. Look at your chores as a challenge and turn your work into a game. Change your attitude, change your life.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Your friends are inconsistent today, encouraging you one minute and then criticizing you the next. You’re particularly sensitive to their words and might be confused by their mixed messages. Nevertheless, you’re ready to reach beyond the status quo now and shake up any stagnant energy. However, expressing your feelings is a bit risky because it can add to the instability of the moment. Let go of your assumptions and adapt to the circumstances as they continue to twist and turn. Deepak Chopra wrote, “All great changes are preceded by chaos.”

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Professional obligations weigh heavily on your shoulders today, but you have a bit of magic up your sleeve that enables you to dream your way through the rough patches. You can accept your fate at face value and work extra hard to meet everyone’s expectations. Or you could use your creativity to invent new solutions that change the rules of the game. Your imagination is the source of great inspiration if you’re willing to tap into the power of lateral thinking now. As Harry Houdini said, “My brain is the key that sets me free.”

New shocking claims that JFK was ‘murdered by CIA’ days after demanding  the release of top-secret UFO files from the CIA,.

The claim was made after US presidential Democratic candidate Hilary Clinton vowed to get to the bottom of an alleged UFO cover up high within the government. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton doesn’t know it yet, but she does not have the power to release such information. The CIA would kill her before she could, just like they did JFK.

Just a week before his death JFK wrote a memo to CIA to release all pertinent info, but somehow he was killed before it ever happened. The memo is now a confirmed declassified document released by the CIA. JFK wrote the memo to CIA on Nov 12, 1963, then on Nov 22, 1963 he was killed.

The memo asked for a breakdown of identified and unidentified sightings the CIA was aware of. JFK wrote: “It would be very helpful if you would have the high threat cases reviewed with the purpose of identification of bona fide as opposed to classified CIA and USAF sources. "It is important that we make a clear distinction between the knowns and unknowns" "I would like you to arrange a program of data sharing where unknowns are a factor.”

“It is hard to think of any work of art of which one can say, This saved the life of one Jew, one Vietnamese, one Cambodian. Specific books, perhaps, but as far as one can tell, no paintings or sculptures. The difference between us and the artists of the 1920s is that they thought such a work of art could be made. Perhaps it was a certain naivete that made them think so. But it is certainly our loss that we cannot.”

imagine dan and phil finding out dan’s neck is so sensitive for the first time. phil tentatively asking “can i try something?” and dan trying not to recoil when he realises phil’s going for his neck. phil gently kissing the skin and dan letting out a gasp of shock and pleasure, his grip on phil’s back tightening at the new sensation. hearing dan’s reaction, phil gains a bit of confidence and starts to lick and nibble at the spot, causing dan’s hips to buck and his breathing to speed up. as soon as phil starts to suck, dan’s a mess, letting out shaky moans and whimpers until he’s coming untouched in his jeans.

The basic project of art is always to make the world whole and comprehensible, to restore it to us in all its glory and its occasional nastiness, not through argument but through feeling, and then to close the gap between you and everything that is not you, and in this way pass from feeling to meaning. It’s not something that committees can do. It’s not a task achieved by groups or by movements. It’s done by individuals, each person mediating in some way between a sense of history and an experience of the world.
