Sleeping with Demons
Jack Carpenter was born on March 23, 1967 to a family of five in Rochester, New York. His early childhood friends noted that he was a happy-go-lucky kid, even at a young age. But how nature always invokes a cruel wrath upon its creations, his entire family was slaughtered by the so-called ‘Rochester Reaper’ when he was only seven. Jack was the only survivor. He was adopted by the Miles family and took the name Jack Miles, which is what he is known as to this day.
After the incident, however, Jack was turned into a functionally different person. Subtle differences; like growing his hair out and wearing darker clothes, as well as fundamental differences; speaking less to his friends and family and losing his charming, smug character. He was now a soft-spoken yet temperamental and collectivized child. --
-- And that brings us to today: It was a particularly cold day; freezing; even, but he couldn’t put it off any longer. The new Jack Miles hiked out from his secluded cabin to face a magnificent, lushous clearing in the woods. It was a second home to him. He stood solemnly in front of three mossy gravestones, meticulously equally spaced apart. He crouched down and scattered a couple roses on the ground next to the stones and looked down at them. He was having nightmares again. Their voices and distorted images still haunted him. Maybe if he visited them again, they’d forgive him..? No. Jack knew that what he did couldn’t be appealed even in the pure perfection and fairness of heaven. It was his and only his fault. The number of mistakes and missteps he made to get him to this despicable state. He should have cut away from Sophia after Black Dusk.. no, he should have never saved the freelancer.. or.. he should have listened to Rose after Ember Shroud. He should have never agreed to assassinate the directors. He should have never joined Halcyon.
Jack suddenly realized that he was crying, and not just any sniffles, he was sobbing. Long, wet tears of sadness and despair. He couldn’t hear the flowing water of the creek next to him. He hadn’t cried since Sophia.. die-...
something in him was incapable of even thinking of that word, akin to a taboo.
Jack sat down on the wet dirt, drenching his black rain jacket and tactical vest, which, for some forsaken reason, he always kept on his person. It had been two years and he still wouldn’t adapt to a normal life. He still lived out in the woods. He still carried a gun and bulletproof vest everywhere he went. And he still wouldn’t talk to anyone. He looked down at his calloused and bruised palms. He was only 51, but his work in the Shadow War had aged him visibly more than twenty years. His dirty, white hair, scars all over his skin and wrinkly face were the unfortunate results of the horrendous acts he committed.
Lying down on the soaked ground, Jack felt the rain hit against his face, renewing the drying tears. His fingers grew more wrinkly by the minute. It might’ve been a good idea to go inside before he got frostbite, but he was determined to stay out with them for a while longer.
The growing severity of the rain was oddly serene, and as the afternoon turned to evening and subsequently to dusk, Jack found his eyes fluttering closed before-
* * *
A grand flash of scarlet fills your eyes as you're jolted awake by an unfamiliar tingling sensation. You gasp for air that you aren’t sure will come, but you calm down soon after. You almost don’t dare to open your eyes, horrified by what you may encounter. Thankfully, however, you seem to be right where you were the last time you can remember.
The bright moon shining high in the sky, the fireflies lighting up a path to the clear, large lake that seems to be in stark contrast with the dry tundra plane, but you are blissfully oblivious of this. You are drawn to the mystical water and begin subconsciously walking in its direction. Its reflection in the lively moonlight dancing on the surface of the calm water is purely mesmerizing. The fireflies show you to the lake.. They are the creatures of this realm.
The pale lake grows bigger in your eyes as you approach it though, a slight inconsistency arises the closer you get to it: it’s turning red. A tragically beautiful blood red. The type of blood red from a person. You want to turn around. You want to turn around and run, run fast, but your legs won’t budge. They just keep moving forward like a mindless pawn in a grand scheme. The blood (or whatever the substance is) is swirling with the clashing with the water, a battle of pure versus corrupted. Your heart beats faster and your lungs grow shallow, as if anticipating for something to happen. And to your absolute horror, a metal object begins forming, half submerged in the now completely red lake. It starts as only a long, corroded rod, but soon starts to grow a large bubble shape on one end, while keeping the straight line on the other.
The shape is growing bigger by the minute, and soon encompasses a big portion of the seemingly never-ending lake. It keeps forming in abstract ways: fins on the back and blades on top until something suddenly clicks for you.
It’s a helicopter.
But it can't be her helicopter, no. That would be impossible. No. It was destroyed in the crash. It can’t..
And just then, in a cruel twist of fate, letters are painted one-by-one on the tail in the same blood from the lake:
B R I N G I T O N
You fall to the ground. Knees first, then your arms, and your head follow. You want to get up. Get up and do something, but you should have expected that you couldn’t. You’ve gone through hundreds of these dreams, nightmares, now.
And every. single. time. you. try.
You’re hit with a wall of the most dreaded feeling you can’t explain.
I doubt anyone is going to read the whole thing (let alone the entire novella), but thank you if you did

2021.10.20 23:10 PreferredSex_Yes Current movie spins are very destructive to "unity". *spoilers*
I watched the new Candyman film, and I think it and films like it are some of the most destructive propaganda we have today. Let me explain.
In the original film it was about a urban legend which kept his name alive through the fear he had on a community. A white professor was studying the "myth", and (without giving away too many details) she doubted the myth and was used to perpetuate the legacy. She became the myth.Candyman didn't target whites or blacks, he went after whomever.
In the new film.... he just killed white folks. He was from a long lineage of black men that were killed by white people and was praised as some sort of black superhero that slaughtered white people as young as high school students. Candyman targeted a young black man to force this narrative of the evil white man on him and get him to take over killing white people that harmed blacks.
This, along with movies like the purge and other "pro" black movies shaping the minds of people, especially the ones that don't have much interaction with their white counterparts, that white people have this underline evil agenda.
The most blatant of which are the movies which portray white officers as these unrelenting evil oppressors. Not to say I haven't been in positions where cops and white people were blatantly unjust, but to make every fucking film about this... a completely innocent black person suddenly being framed, assaulted, murdered unreasonably by a white person just because.... in 10 years you're going to have a generation of black youth so disenfranchised from the reality of it all set up for failure.

I was born outside of the UK. However my Dad was born there and was married to my Mom before I was born.
I have read I have to right to citizenship by decent.
How do I therefore proceed to gain citizenship?
Do I apply for a passport? Or there’s an application I must consider before taking that step?

2021.10.20 23:10 nm268 Loving someone for the second time
So I started to really like a girl in my group of friends, I thought she liked me back, cause she was sending some signals, my friends agreed. Turned out she only liked me as a friend. When I told her I liked her I didn’t even think about the possibility of her not liking meso when I was rejected I was devastated, I think I even had a depression. It took me a while to be myself again, but after some months I was happy again. I also took some distance from her after this. Half an year passed and I was completely over her but then she started to hang out more with my group of friends and guess what? I’m falling for her AGAIN and I can’t stop it. I think she might be giving some sort of signals again. But she is very confusing and really bad at handling these signals stuff with guys, since this has happened with her with other people as well. We do get along really well, but I don’t know what to do. Getting away from everyone in the is not an option since two of them are my best friends. She might like me this time, I don’t fucking know. She treats me in a slightly more flirty way than the other guys in the group. She admitted it when I was reject the first time. She said she was sorry for it. But it is happening again
