trigger-flood

Some days are good, you know? You forget for a little while and it’s like it never happened to you. And then suddenly it’s not. And you don’t know why. And if feels like the world is crashing down around you and your drowning. And you start to think, it doesn’t matter how many good days you get, the bad ones are still right there waiting for you. It never ends.

she loved her geometry class but once she forgot about the prisms and started thinking about lines she couldn’t stop tracing chalk tracks along the street and drawing stick men over her sheets.
she walked down the hallway with a grace that made her float relentlessly and she’d be caring and forgiving and she’d love you if you’d let her and she was funny and kind and tender but the only thing you missed was to actually remember
she was fast as her little feet allowed her and she would dance in her living room while her parents weren’t home and she loved songs by taylor swift and she loved you way too deep and she’d drawn you on her sheets

the day summer break returned she was floating and bouncing and low key happy enough to die but when she turned around and saw it she stopped dancing (forever) and she put an end to her floating.
instead of blasting taylor swift all she could hear were her tears falling to her feet and as she crawled around her house she’d find broken pieces of herself scattered all around the floor. she was all around the floor.
she slept too much or slept to little but either way she was always too tired to even breathe and she really didn’t want to because inhaling felt like a punch to her chest and exhaling felt like falling into a void.
but how could her friends even love her and why would people look at her and why would anyone consider her important and as she asked herself a final question she blacked-out in the bathroom.
she’d never look at herself in a mirror because she’d find mistakes in everything she was and her eyes were too empty as if she were a walking corpse and she probably was. she felt dead inside.
but the way you didn’t love her made her implode and explode, all at the same time; she lied down on the floor but her heart was somewhere else, “I wonder if he’d love me if I had been enough for him”.
she didn’t like chemistry but now that she felt smaller than an atom she finally understood what being torn apart would mean; her heart blew out in bits and she shed a last tear, she (craved) sent you a last kiss.

she loved her geometry class way more than she loved herself and she forgot about the prisms but the lines she did remember kept her standing still until she rolled down her sleeve and placed a blade upon her skin.

bloody hell,
my arms are flooding.

Blizzard Lockdown

With several days of nearly non-stop snowfall, the students and staff find themselves snowed in, with limited access outside of the immediate school building (namely to the stables for the horses to be tended to and the greenhouse for the plants). 

Given the amount of snow, Storm’s use of her powers to relieve the school would offset the weather patterns elsewhere—something she had learned in the past, accidentally triggering a flood in the southern part of the state. Application of too much heat to the snow would invite flooding around the school, and flight in the severe weather would be too dangerous for those capable of it. In short, powers cannot be used to alleviate the issue of being snowed in and stuck at the school. For the time being, Professor Xavier has instructed everyone—students and staff—to ‘wait it out’, bringing the school to a lockdown. 

This event affects ALL students. What does your character do? Do they go stir crazy? Does paranoia creep over them about being stuck? How do they occupy their time after the regular school days end? Do they try to make the best of it and play in the snow (building tunnels, snowmen, etc.)? Do they stay in and indulge on cocoa and games? Does the cold bother them at all?

This event lasts for 5 days beginning Monday Feb. 16 and ending Saturday Feb. 21 when the blizzard ends and the staff (with a few select students) are able to safely clear paths Saturday morning. 

Any new threads, paras, etc. that begin during this time should be pertaining to the blizzard and your character’s reaction to it. If you have any questions, feel free to send the admins a message or fanmail!

Players! Please ‘like’ this post so we know that you have seen and read it!

OH NO, I hope to someday play Kesh in the inevitable future game my friend Ryan has offered to maybe someday DM.

Ryan, for those of you who don’t know, plays Pellwin Amadel in the 5e campaign I’m running now.  Pellwin the paladin who is writing his own chivalric rules called ‘how to be Dandy’.  Pellwin who avoided a trap and stormed off from the party discussion afterwards, only to fall in another trap because he wasn’t paying attention.  Pellwin who stormed away from the trash cave in the goblin hideout and ended up triggering a flood on the entire party.  Pellwin who purposefully gave up his longsword because ‘a rapier is more Dandy’.

I think playing a blood-knight half-orc bard with ridiculous weaponry in whatever campaign he runs is only fair after what he’s been doing in my campaign (also his past history of being ‘the guy who runs into shit and gets the whole group in trouble or who actively tries to party-kill in multiplayer video games’).

I don’t think there’s any set of words more powerful to describe a relationship with someone than “we grew up together”.
Its not like you met each other one day in high school when you already figured out who you were, or you said hey in the hallway a few times and labeled yourselves friends. When you grow up with someone, that person is a part of your memories. They saw you in your awkward phases when you had no idea how to fix your hair or that you cant match a pink shirt with purple pants. They knew you at your most carefree time of life and thought “I like this person, I want to know this person”. And you knew them during theirs, and decided you wanted to know them too. When you grow up with someone, just hearing their name can trigger a flood of memories or emotions. Everyone knows that you two have history just by hearing those four words. Those four little words that let everyone know, you had a childhood with this person. A childhood that you’ll always remember because nobody wants to forget their innocence. Nobody wants to forget their first best friend. Nobody wants to lose the feeling if trust they have for that person. Growing up with someone in your life is a sentimental thing that everyone experiences but no one really thinks about. When you grow up with someone, that’s when you find out who your true friends are. You know who’s going to be there for you and who isnt. You learn about that persons life and what they’ve been through, and you see them in a different light. They see you at your weakest times and your strongest hours. You see them during their ups and downs. Although you may lose touch after school years are over, and take different paths, theyll always be a part of you and your memories. When you grow up with someone, they’re no longer just the kid you pass in the hallway, or the familiar face you see in the store. They’re family.

Forget Hacking - CIA Accuses Russia Of "Manipulating The World's Weather"
By : Zero Hedge Published on : 2/17/2015 9:30:18 PM

America appears to have found something else to blame the Russians (or North Koreans) for… The Weather. As The Daily Mail reports, CIA chiefs fear hostile nations are trying to manipulate the world’s weather… seriously.

So-called "geoengineering techniques" range from cloud seeding, in which chemicals are sprayed by planes trigger rainfall, to shooting mirrors into space to reflect sunlight and cool the Earth.

But as The Daily Mail reports, a leading academic has told how he got a mysterious phone call asking whether foreign countries could be triggering droughts or flooding…

Professor Alan Robock, from Rutgers University in New Jersey, said:

Consultants working for the CIA rang and said we’d like to know if someone is controlling the world’s climate would we know about it?

Of course they were also asking - if we control someone else’s climate would they then know about it.

The professor is one of many scientists from around the world are actively looking at manipulating the weather as a way of combating climate change.

Professor Robock told the callers that any attempts to meddle with the weather on a large scale would be detectable.

However, he told the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s annual conference in San Jose, that the weather has been weaponised in the past.

During the Vietnam War, US scientists tried to increase rainfall to hamper the enemy’s progress by spraying particles into the clouds.

And the CIA seeded clouds over Cuba “to make it rain and ruin the sugar harvest”.

Asked how he felt when he got the call, the professor said: “Scared.”

"I’d learned of lots of other things the CIA had done that haven’t followed the rules and that wasn’t how I wanted my tax money spent.

"I think this research has to be open and international, so there isn’t any question of using it for hostile purposes."

To add to the intrigue, the CIA is believed to have helped fund a major report into geoengineering.

Published last week by the prestigious US National Academy of Sciences, the report mentions the ‘US intelligence community’ in its list of sponsors, alongside organisations such as Nasa.

He added that the tension created by any large-scale meddling in the climate could escalate to such an extent that it would end in all-out war.

The professor said: ‘If one country wants to control the climate in one way, and another doesn’t want it or if they try to shoot down the planes...if there is no agreement it could result in terrible consequences.’

So is the US economy now at the mercy of some cunning geo-engineer in Moscow seeding snow clouds over the Midwest and crushing GDP in the process?
