So during my break at work I have a little time and I try to work on my fan fics. Since I'm not allowed to plug in a thumb drive at work it's easy to access them by having them here. That's why I've been putting draft in my blog.
Slay Ranma by Lioconvoy

Other Stuff from the Author: The idea for this story came to me after reading Carrotglace's "Sailor Ranmoon Vol. 1", and sailor pluto rok's "If Akane was a sailor scout"
Chapter Four: Playing with Dolls
Just as she and Akane arrived at the doll store, so to did Ranma and Kaoru. She was surprised to see Kaoru dressed in an outfit similar to Gourry’s normal armor. She was so distracted by Kaoru’s attire she forgot to hide from Ranma. Why wasn’t he cringing?
“Were you two just flying?” Akane was jealous she looked like someone doing a poor job of cosplaying Sailor Moon, but Ranma looks like Ami with slightly longer hair, maybe it was the light but it looked like his hair turned blue. Who was the Knight with her.
“Kaoru uses magic.” Ranma looked at the cat shaped creature next to Akane. She didn’t have a moon shaped mark on her head, but assumed she was Lina. He noticed that particular cat around from time to time, mostly because it never triggered his fear. How long had Lina been watching him? In fact… she was there when he got his fear of cats she fought off some of the felines the first two times he was thrown in the pit. “Um is that Lina?”
“Kaoru’s a guy!”
He wasn’t really surprised by that reaction. Most people thought he was a girl. Despite knowing magic was real he didn’t know it was possible for him to really be a girl. He wondered if he wanted to be one. That wasn’t really important right now. He looked at the cat with Akane. Or who he thought was Akane, something kept him from recognizing her. The cat something felt off about her, he didn’t know what it was, but even if he didn’t know she was behind the Senshi he’d know she was special. Wait…cat Lina… from the family history he was forced to endure as punishment. Was Koaru in the presence of the Lina Inverse?
“It’s obvious we have much to discus latter. However right now I think it’s best you deal with the constructs.” I can feel the energy begin to gather. If you defeat them quickly it will return, but if we take to long it won’t.” So many things to discuss. The immortal sorceresses had paid so much attention to Kaoru and Ranma she was surprised to be surprised by either of them.
Ho-ot stood in his room at the temple his hand out as the energy the constructs were collecting gathered. There was no way they would gather enough to free their lord in one night, but this was a promising start.
Ranma entered the store first. Lina had said the monsters were construct and that there were two of them. He couldn’t sense them, but neither could Kaoru. Akane may have been powered up by Lina, but she just was not the best option to take point. The store was lit up and on the shelves were dolls of various magical girls. He recognized the Magic Knights, Wedding Peach, Sailor Moon, and even Magical Girl Lulu. Why was Magical Girl Lulu included she was a gag character from Rune Solider. While he was too focused on Lulu, a Mysytery Knight Keiko attacked her. She took down the doll easily and was greatly annoyed. How dare they make an unlicensed Keiko doll!
Several other dolls jumped off the shelf at her. She wasn’t surprised buy this tactic. It was common in Sailor Moon, but where were the puppeteers. Taking down the other dolls he got a sense of danger aproaching. Was it a construct. She quickly turned around and caught the kick. The construct jumped back and had an evil smirk. She looked exactly like an adult Sailor Mercury.
“The master knew there would be hunters, but we did not expect true magical girls.” Mer wondered if she underestimated her opponent. Sailor Mercury and Sailor Moon were the weakest of the Senshi. She and her sister were given these forms so that they be underestimated themselves.
“Yeah well I wasn’t expecting a knockoff of Mystery Knight Keiko to be present among all these magical girls. She’s not even a magical girl she just a knight.” Now that she had made contact with the enemy she could sense her. “Shabon Spray”
This attack. What was the point? Her back up wasn’t coming. Mon will take care of the two outside easily. Maybe she couldn’t see the magical girl, but could she see her? “You’re a … how?”
The fog faded and Ranma saw a pile of dust where the construct had been. Lina was right the Moko Takabisha was surprisingly effective against it. He was kind of curious why though. Wasn’t it the kind of energy they were collecting?
-v-v-v-v-v-At the same time Ranma was fighting Mer-v-v-v-v-v-

Some Things are Just too Ridiculous: Side Stories
War in the Shadow
Pre-story note: This story takes place after chapter five.
Hikaru wanted to go home with Akane, but she knew her friend would probably rather be alone. Her other two friends both went their own ways after the fight. Risa was probably bothering the swim team, and she didn’t know what Yuki was up to. She was about to just head home when she saw Akane Hidaka strolling into the school grounds. ‘Evil Akane’ as she called her wasn’t a Furinkan student, rather she was a student at St. Bacchus' School for girls. Despite being a student at another school she was the unofficial president of the ‘Natsumi’s Brother Fan Club’.
She never understood why a boy no one really knew anything about had a fan club at Furinkan. Natsumi Saotome would always talk about how strong and how manly her little brother was, but in reality she had no clue what her brother was like since she hadn’t seen him in ten years. Yet somehow a bunch of girls started a fan club just for a boy they knew nothing about including his name.
What really sucked was that fan club booted her out of her own club making it a front. Since she was the only member of the photography club it was easy for them to take over and steal her club space for their own use. At first they forced her to remain a member. They used her as a spy sending her to the boys’ school to check out Ukyo Kuonji. Back when she was a boy no one really ever noticed her except maybe Mizuki Shimada, or guys wanting pictures of Akane.
When she became a girl, and after she put the effort in improving herself, she got noticed a lot. Not that she was interested in guys, but there were more than a few that hit on her. Having lost her invisibility factor she was released from the club. Which she was more than happy about. While Mizuki, the official club president was okay, ‘Evil Akane’ was a nightmare. Since the nightmare did not acknowledge her, she decided going home was definitely the priority.
Mizuki sat in the club room frowning. The other members of her club were chatting among themselves. Only third years changed back and for the most part only ones who didn’t challenge ‘Goddess Akane’. She wondered if Akane Tendo knew of that nickname, she also wondered if Akane Hidaka knew her nickname was ‘Evil Akane’. The club president entered the room with a sour look on her face. “What’s wrong?”
“Guy have started changing back? I had finally gotten my dad to agree to transfer me to this school, but he was only going to do so long as Furinkan was an all-girls school.” The only Hidaka daughter was furious. She spent so long convincing her father to transfer her and now it all be for nothing? She had to be at Akane Tendo’s school so she could keep an eye on the youngest Tendo. Eventually Ranma would show up at the Tendo compound and she wanted to be able reclaim him.
“It’s probably best you don’t attend Furinkan, the original Knights are here, they’d get in your way.” Their group had two rivals. The original Knights of the True fiancé that supported Akane Tendo’s engagement to Ranma, and the knockoff Knights at Tomobiki that supported Ukyo’s. Most people simply thought their club was made of fans of Natsumi’s little brother. The Truth was both she and ‘Evil Akane’ were fiancées of Natsumi’s little brother. Well both her and Hidaka’s claims were voided by their fathers, but each of them still hoped Ranma would choose to renew their relationship. Of course, if Ranma chose her over ‘Evil Akane’, Hidaka would turn on her in a heartbeat. “Several of them are among the boys that got turned back.”
“…Well, I’m sure they’d still be an issue even if they were still girls, but I think the storm trooper can handle them.” Sure, there were fighters among the Knights, but their club had fighters too. The storm troopers were at least as tough as Akane Tendo and she took out Danjuro Hatanaka the leader of the Knights.
“Maybe, but I don’t think the Knights would hold back against the storm troopers like they did Akane.” That was something that had bothered her since the fight why was Danjuro among the student that attacked Akane?
Hikaru didn’t quite understand what she was seeing. The Tomobiki Eleven or Twelve now weren’t fighting Kuno, but Danjuro, Kenta, Nobuo and Masato instead. The only Gosunkugi child was confused at both the fact those four were fighter Kuno’s stalkers and that three of them were guys. All four were third years, but they were also all a part of the first group of guys that attacked Akane.
“Do not come to our school again.” Danjuro finished his fight with Ataru. He really hated the Eleven desecrating their school ground and now that he was a guy and at full power, he was happy to do something about it. As the Tomobiki students ran he counted an extra body. Then he noticed Goddess Akane’s best friend. “Hey Hikaru.”
“Hello Danjuro-sempai.” The four upperclassmen joined her. She was a little worried when she was a boy, she’d get bullied all the time. Not that the former captain of the Judo club had ever been one of the bullies, but Masato was. She, at the time a he, would always be mad at her for taking pictures of Akane. Of the four it was only Masato that remained female, but it really made little sense any of them returned male.
“You don’t need to worry we’re not going to bully you. You’re not the creep taking unwanted pictures of Akane Tendo anymore. You’ve changed yourself into her best friend, you respect her now and I can respect that kind of change.” Masato smile when she was a guy, she was overweight and terrible at her family’s style of martial art. In the last two month she hadn’t become a master, but she had lost a surprising amount of weight and she was now rather cute. Like the photographer being a girl gave new meaning to her life, she was happy who she became.
“That said we do kind of need information.” Danjuro frown. He, Kenta and Nabuo all returned to being guys, but Masato hadn’t. He was kind of uncomfortable with that. Still, that wasn’t important at the moment. “Has Ranma arrived at the Tendos’? "
“Who is Ranma?” That was name Hikaru never heard before. What did Ranma have to do with the Tendos?
"Ranma Saotome is Natsumi Saotome's famous little brother. Akane's fiance. Well, I guess technically he could be the fiance of Kasumi, Nabiki or Akane. However, Akane seems the most likely choice since they're the same age." Kenta wondered how the pervert would take Akane's engagement. He never cared for Gosunkugi. There group was formed to protect Ranma's interest and not really Akane's, but he didn't get why Akane befriended her former stalker. There was no way Nabiki hadn't told her who her new best friend was.
"The other day someone matching Genma description was seen in town with a young guy that resembled Natsumi with black hair in a short braid." Nobuo was kind of torn. He finally regained his manhood, but he missed the long hair his girl form had. He should have been happy to be a; medium built, five-foot six brown haired, brown eyed guy, but he missed his shoulder length hair.
"No, there was a Usagi Narita at the Tendo home. I was told she was Natsumi's cousin, but she had red hair in a short braid. Not that I remotely understand how Akane's curse works but it changed hair styles not hair color, so I don't think Usagi is Ranma. I was told Usagi beat Akane the day before and that's why Akane was absent yesterday anyway." A thought crossed the photographer's mind. What if Kuno's curse wasn't the only way for someone to transform? Risa had mention Usagi was wearing one of Akane's bras. Akane said Usagi had lost her clothes, but was that really the reason?
"Usagi Narita..." Denjuro like his three friend was descended from a family that once served the Saotome Clan. Most of their group didn't have this motivation behind them, but they joined because they liked Natsume. He had no idea how their group came to be called Knights of the True Fiancée; he hated that name. Still, he knew a fair bit about the woman who married into the Saotome. Neither of Nodoka's siblings were married, but her brother was kind of an Indiana Jones. "Makoto Narita's daughter?"
"Er…, yes. So you guys not only know the name of Natsumi's unnamed brother, but her cousin too?" She was Akane's best friend so she wasn't surprised she didn't know about Natsumi's family, but Hikaru couldn't help but wonder why these guys knew so much.
"The fan club knows Ranma's name too, both Mizuku and 'Evil Akane' are illegitimate fiancées of Ranma. As is Ukyo. Before you ask, no I don't know why a girl is attending an all-boys school. I think the reason they don't mention his name in the club is because they don't want other illegitimate fiancées causing them problems." Kenta noticed Nobuo feeling his neck. Did he miss being a girl? Hopefully he just missed his long hair. They were men, it was kind of sick that Gosunkugi and Masato embraced being girls. "For the record, the four of us and others from our group were only in the first mob to protect Akane. None of us are interested in her. However, I guess since she didn't know that we got taken down along with everyone else."
"I wonder if that's why you guys turn back along with the other third years from the second group. You had no interest in Akane, so you got released from the curse." Masato was glad she didn't turn back. She didn't know if all her weight would come back or not, but she just didn't want to be a guy. Even if she would have become a skinny guy, she'd rather be a girl it just felt right.
Thinking about what Masato just said, and the fact Masato was still a girl it probably meant she won’t need to worry about becoming a guy again. If Akane had a fiancé already at least she could still be her best friend. Not that she ever had a chance with the youngest as a guy anyway. She wanted to take time time to sort out what she learned “Am I free go?”
“Sure, but if you do hear about Ranma, please let us know.” The former Judo captain didn’t expect the former boy to join their cause, but he hoped she’d at least keep them informed so they could look after Ranma and Akane’s interest.
Shingo watched his target separate from the fools that thought Akane deserved Ranma. Knights of the True Fiancée. Bah. Ukyo Kuonji, was the true fiancée. He’d wait a bit till Akane’s friend was further away from the knights.
Denjuro wondered if Ranma was in Nerima or not. Hopefully his group will be able to keep the fake fiancées off of him. ‘Evil Akane’ and Ukyo were his biggest worry. Both girls didn’t quite prove to be of sound mind. Both had their claims annulled when Genma’s wife reimbursed their fathers for what was stolen. Their fathers both accepted the restitution. Yet Ukyo attends an all-boys school with a cult at her command, and ‘Evil Akane’ he didn’t want to think what she was capable of. A former upperclassman was still in the hospital because of her. Sure, her father cut her purse strings, but she still had people willing to hurt others for her. “Masato, think you can become friends with Gonsunkugi?”
“Maybe, maybe not. I mean sure we have choosing to stay girls in common, but not much else. Besides what would be the point? She’s not apart of our dumb little war.” Sure, she would continue to protect the Saotome Clan’s interest, but things were pretty ridiculous. Ukyo’s group spying on them and the Ranma Fan club. Them spying back. The fan club’s Storm Troopers occasionally attacking Ukyo or other false fiancées. Both Ukyo’s group and The Ranma Fan Club knew that she was a member of Denjuro’s group. If she hung out with Hikaru wouldn’t that make her a target?
“Shingo is already eying her that’s why Nobuo and Kenta are still following her. If Ranma really has arrived she’s going to get caught in the crossfire either way.” The former Judo captain frowned. He had to agree it was a dumb little war. It’d be even dumber if Ranma actually chose Ukyo or any of the other false fiancées over Akane. However, that was Ranma’s choice. Just as it was their choice to be involved in the stupid war in the first place. The Saotome Clan lost all it’s power around when the school first failed to unite. Ranma’s several greats grandmother running away to marry a commoner practically destroyed the Saotome Clan.

Some Things are Just too Ridiculous By Lioconvoy
Chapter Six: The same problem, new reasons
Ranma tried to center herself. It was great getting to spend time with her mom. However, before her mom left to prepare her sisters for the introduction she admitted that Kasumi’s plan needed to be followed. Outside her own home or the Tendo property she had to be a she. Apparently all the problems her old man ran from tend to make their way to Nerima.
Sixteen, not including Akane Tendo, she was engaged to sixteen different women. Ukyo, Minako, Rei, Setsuna, a different Akane, Sara, Azusa, Koaru, Mizuki, Kasumi not Tendo, Rumiko, Naoko, Megumi, Natsuna, Masako, and Natsumi not his sister. She had no idea Ukyo and Kaoru were girls let alone her pop engaged her to them. Ukyo was a good friend that was all she had ever been to her why that idiot engage to her buddy? Also Kaoru was practically a little brother. Most of the other girls she barely remembered ever interacting with at all.
While some of the parents had given up their claims on him thanks to his Mother negotiating with them and or reimbursing what her old man had stolen. None of the girls had except Kaoru, maybe that was a sign she was against the engagement herself. Even though Nerima was a large ward, there was too much of a chance of her running into any of them. So for that reason in public she had to be Usagi Narita the daughter of Makoto Narita. She wondered if her mother had gotten her uncle’s approval for this.
She really didn’t want to accidentally take her current anger at her father out on her sisters, but it was really hard to not be angry that she wasn’t allowed to be herself.
Makato looked was very careful as he walked down the streets of Nerima. He really hoped he’d not run into the ladle lady today. He was less likely to find Nodoka at home alone today and he really didn’t want any of his nieces knowing of his curse.
Nabiki walked into the dojo to see Ranma meditating. “That something Kasumi’s having you do?”
“No, you missed a lot today.” She didn’t exactly know where to start. The redhead sighed. “I’m going to be going home today.”
“Really, you’re mom’s not going to kill you?” That was good news so Ranma wasn’t going to have to pretend to be a girl. Something struck her as odd as soon as that thought crossed her mind why was Ranma a girl right now? Was she wearing Natsumi’s clothes?
“Nope in fact it’s my mom’s fault I have my curse.” The redhead had more than enough to blame on her pop. It didn’t feel entirely right blaming her curse on her mom, but he mother wanted to take the blame because she set the events in motion.
“Wait, Mom knew what the pamphlet was before sending it to dad?”
Ranma looked at the girl who now entered the dojo. She looked like a younger version of herself, just with a slightly longer braid. This had to be Koneko, her mom was right it was scary how close their appearances matched. Her little sister was two years younger but it was kind of hard to tell. Standing up she walked over to he sailor suit clad sister and noticed that she was a little taller than her and only a little bigger than her. “Koneko shouldn’t you be at home?”
“Well Kasumi didn’t come over yesterday so I thought I’d visit her instead.” Her big brother could almost be her twin. Sure all eight sisters were similar especially in the face, but they all had different figures. Well Yuukune and Rouko were only ten so they hadn’t quite started to blossom, but considering the pattern they might end up more like the older twins rather than herself. Still the only difference she noticed between herself and Ranma was an inch in height and a little in the chest. She was sure she’d catch up. Looking at her brother turned sister again…. “Why are you wearing some of Natusmi’s clothes.”
“Because of Pop there be too maybe problems if I’m in public as Ranma. Mom borrowed these clothes for me to wear for when I go home. I changed into them now cause I didn’t know how long it take mom to get the lot of you ready to meet me. I’m waiting for her to call before I head home.” Changing clothes constantly was a pain. That's why she liked her Chineese clothes. They were comfortable to fight in and looked cool. However as they weren't very common in Japan she'd draw to much attention to herself wearing them. Where was her fiancee? "Where's Akane? Does she have after school activities?"
"She was in a fight with Kuno, Kasumi is looking at her right now. So far it's just a few bruises." Nabiki was of mix feeling about this outcome. Part of her wanted to see if maybe her sudden friendship with Kuno was rapidly becoming something else. Although they'd been business partners for two months she didn't really consider Taki a friend before yesterday. The other part really didn't want to lose more income. Right now her sister's love life was the priority. "So Akane can't brag you're her fiance?"
"No, not if she want to stay safe there are at least fifteen other girls who thanks to my old man can make that claim. According to mom they're not all the most stable of girls." She still wasn't as centered as she wanted to be and she'd rather ignore this particular issues at the moment, but Akane did need to know and by extension Nabiki too.
"I think the only ones Akane really needs to worry about are Akane Hidaka, Megumi Saotome, and Natsuna Aragaki. Rumiko Takeshida, Mizuki Shimada, and Setsuna Noya all go to Furinkan.” She knew who all sixteen of her brother’s fiancees were. Kaoru was actually her age, and currently her best friend. Most of the other girls were closer to Ranma’s age.
“Oh Koneko’s you’re here.” Kasumi came into the Dojo to tell Ranma her mother was ready for her, but one of his sisters was missing. She was so worried about outsider coming after Ranma after hearing about the other fiancees that she missed sensing Koneko. “You’re mothers ready for you I guess Koneko can take you home rather than Akane.”
“What no! I mean I’m glad Ranma is home, but me and Kaoru don’t want to miss anymore training. You didn’t stop by yesterday that’s why we’re here now. Well I kind of ran ahead of Kaoru, but she’s on her way.” Since she had turned to face Kasumi who was behind her she missed out her brother reaction to Kaoru being on her way. She wonder if her mother mentioned Kaoru practically lived with them. “Besides you might need our help forcing Dad to come home.”
“I guess that later point is fair, I don’t know if your father knows you mom won’t make him commit seppuku.” Maybe there was no reason to alter the original plan. Her sister could bring Ranma home and be introduced as his one true fiancee. “What do you think Ranma?”
Ranma finally got up from her meditating position. She walked over to Koneko and messed up her hair. “I guess it will suck not having my favorite little sister there, but hey I get it, training is important. I’m pretty sure she’ll be pretty good at monopolizing my time so maybe the others need a fair shot.”
Soun got of the phone with Nodoka. Genma demanded the return to the Tendo compound first before going to see his wife, something about having an important artifact in his bag that he had to have with him. What was odd was that Nodoka agreed Genma probably should bring it with him. Neither of them would tell him what it was. “Genma, lets head back to my place.”
“Yes lets.” If his old friend was right and Nodoka didn’t want to kill him…, then she might want him to fulfill his duties that he had put off for so long. He need to make sure the statue of the Infertility goddess watched over them. He did not need anymore children.
Koneko came out of the changing room surprised to see Nabiki was still hanging out in the dojo. Since she was still in her school uniform she wasn’t there to train. Well since Nabiki was there she might as well find out if she needed to worry about her own issues again. “You said Kuno fought Akane, he’s not a guy again is he?”
“No he didn’t change back.” Nabiki was surprised. She had hoped Ranma’s sister would bring up Kuno, but she wasn’t expecting her to have such a happy face that Kuno was still a girl. Taki complained how much of a pain Koneko was and how much she crushed on her while she was still a he. “You don’t want Kuno to be a guy?”
"Of course not. I didn't fall for him of my own free will, there was a stupid magic pill involved." In hind site it was dumb of her to put the piece of the bracelet in her mouth, just to see if it was a tiny pearl. Because the little twin stormed in to the room she and Naru shared she accidently swallowed it. "We found out after what I accidently swallowed a pill that make me be in love with Kuno for my life time. Kuno turning into a girl was the best thing that ever happened because apparently the pill doesn't work for same sex relations. We're still trying to find a cure."
So if she liked Kuno, Koneko wouldn't me a rival. Now she need to decide what her feelings were. Nabiki sighed. How did she fall for Kuno of all people?
As they walked to her home things were a little too quiet. She wasn't sure what to talk about. Ranma worried talking about their relationship might cause trouble because of all the other fiancees he had. Maybe he should talk about his siter's. "Is Kaoru, Koneko's boyfriend?"
"Ran... Usagi, Kaoru is a girl, she's my cousin and Koneko's best friend." Akane sighed she got what Ranma was doing, but she didn't quite think she had a clue how to do it.
"Sorry, with one exception most of the Kaorus I know are guys, so I just assumed." Normally she wasn't so quick to jump to the wrong conclusions. She knew Kaoru could be a girl's name, but it in her experience it was more common to be a guys name. Now that she thought about it, didn't the one female Kaoru she knew kind of look like Akane? "Your cousin doesn't have brown hair like Kasumi and green eyes, does she?"
So yesterday, I had to stay late for a extra task. About an hour after I left the store it got robbed.
Police arrest 3 minors in connection to overnight robberies
I know my store they stole chips, money from one of the cash registers, stole keys and jewelery from customers, and beat on one of the clerks. She's okay.
Tonight after I left a gentleman who's been 86ed (He's not allowed in the store) for stealing beer, decided since we wouldn't let him in the store, he was going to punch the window. There is now a nice fist sized hole in the window and it's pretty broken. I had been next door at Jack in the Box eating when I saw the cop car pull up and I was worried. My co-workers are fine and they caught the guy.
Bad things then to happen in three's I'm not looking forward to what's next....
Okay so how does my work day start? We have a line of customers and one of the drawers needed to be turned over. Instead of standing in line a lady hand her money to the first person in line tells him what she want done with it and walks out with a soda in hand. The guy is a regular and a nice guy so he complies, five dollars in gas. However she had a soda, and I had to ring that up. So it was 4.04 in gas and 96 cents for the soda. A different lady comes in complaining that she wants five dollars in gas. They had already started pumping the gas and I can't just let them have the soda for free. The first lady who didn't even bother standing in line tried saying she wasn't with the second lady. Yes she was they got in the car and left together. Since they weren't listening to me Ignored them and the second lady said she was the wrong lady to mess with and she'd be back.
About an hour later she was back and she stole about twenty-five dollar worth of stuff. Now proper pocedure is to call the boss report the theft to him and then to the 7 Eleven theft prevention hotline, once there out the door , I'm not supposed to go after them. I stupidly did. I went to the car their window were rolled down, and I tried to grab stuff back. I got pepper sprayed.
Not an experience I'd like to go through again. In the end the cops got her, we got the stuff back, most of it opened or had pepper spray on it so it had to written off, but I didn't press charged cause I didn't recognize her when the cops took me to see her. (My coworker did when they brought her by) She has been told she not allowed back on the property.
My other coworkers heard about this and wondered why there wasn't a more severe punishment for the lady. 25 dollars worth of stuff, is still small time isn't it? I don't fault the cops for not doing more. What more could they do?
Am I the only one who finds the way that word is used stupid. We're all the same *squee!*ing race. We are all humans. So what if the bloody tone of your skin is a different bloody color your still a human. Why the flying squeal do we use the word racist to describe discrimination based on skin color? Wouldn't Toneist or something be more accurate?
So I generally sleep from 0500 to 1300. 5 AM to 1 PM to those that don't know military time. Sunday night, Morning I couldn't sleep. I got up from my bed about 0630-0700 something sounded off with my AC. I then notice my carpet is wet. I immediately call my apartment maintenance. It took an hour and a half for them to send someone and then another half an hour for the person who would drain the water to show up. I lost about $200 dollars in comic books had to move half my apartment around. I really don't get why the didn't call for the Carpet guy(he's the one that gets rid of the water) as soon as I mentioned the flooding maybe then it wouldn't have gotten so bad. I have an inch of water in my kitchen.
Anyway that's where I was yesterday. I keep my computer on the floor in the area that got flooded so I had to disconnect it and move it out as soon as I noticed the water was moving in that direction. So I'm lucky it didn't get damaged.
What the title says.
I was at work. I had just finished taking out our cardboard when a customer asked me for help at the pumps. I helped him out and then was on my way back inside the store. I saw a piece of garbage on the ground and went to pick it up. I saw a truck backing up so I backed up and let them pass. After they passed I went to get the garbage and I got hit. I didn't see who hit me I just hit the ground hard.
After I got hit I felt numb I wanted to get up but I just couldn't. A moment later I did. I'm not sure if I had picked up the garbage before or after I got hit, but it was in my hands and customer were telling me to just sit on the curb, So I did. They said they called the cops and an Ambulance. I remember talking to a firefighter or a cop and then going inside to sit down. After that I sat till my headache was manageable and started to go back to work. My Manager got their. She had me talk to the owner and then call the 7 Eleven hotline. They then sent me home. My head still hurt a little, but I was more than willing to finish my shift.
I'm told I declined talking to the paramedics, but I remember thinking that they'd follow me inside.
Not an experience I'd ever like to repeat.
He wouldn't leave his computer till he won an arguments and he had to go to the bathroom really bad. Instead of peeing in his pant somehow his bladder exploded and he died. That's why I hate back and forth posting so much.
Seriously I know I've mentioned this many times before but my problem with back and forth posting on games stems from the fact that it just doesn't seem right to me. Whats the point of a forum game if it's only two people playing it. Back and forthing in a game just makes me feel like I'm intruding, rather than it being a game that everyone should play.
Some thing are also less amusing when it's done by two people going back and fourth rather than when it's by a group. For example recently in Word Ascation a group of us stumbled into Rick Ashly's well know song. It was funny that we all were one the same track. But then it got taken over by back and forthing, and it just wasn't as amusing. It's easier to get two people on the same mindset rather than a group.
So another back and forth rant because @Ridley Wolf asked for it.
I can not respect the movement. Not in the slightest. If they really believed what they preach why don't the tackle both halves of the problem. Yes part of the problem is cops, but most of the events they protested were cases where the cops were actually in the right.
Here's the other half of the problem. If you so firmly believe that you're being unfairly target by stereotypes why not tell you people to stop living up to the bloody stereotype. Last night a guy came in to my work grabbed two beers went to the counter and asked for cigarettes. Then after my coworker grabbed the cigarettes he asked for a swisher. As she was grabbing the swisher he pocked the cigarettes and started to walk out with them and the beers. She called him out on it and he just walked out. I ran after him and tried to get the beers back. He punched me in the face with one of the beers. My glasses were knocked off my face and I'm kind of blind without them so that ended my chase.
He was black. The co-workers he stole from were black. I was off the clock still there to prepare for a audit. An audit we have to go through because the high amount of theft we've been having. Black Lives Matter only seems to call out the cops for what's been happening lately. I'm not saying they're aren't bad cops. There most definitely are, Rid, a white guy had a run in with a bad cop. Some of the responsibility needs to fall back on them. Tell these people if they want a better chance of not giving bad cops an excuse, follow the bloody law. Acting like a thug just because people already assume you're a thug validates the stereotype and makes it harder for people to move on from the perspective they already have.
There I times when Ridley rubs me the wrong way, but there are other times we see eye to eye. So I'm kind of annoyed he got banned. What he got banned for was labeled as Racism. I've never know Ridley to be racist. He has several times complained about the immigrants he works (who happen to be Mexican) with and it's believed his most recent rant was the cause of the ban. He started off explicitly saying the immigrants at his job site and ended saying Mexican. Granted he didn't ended the best way, but if you read the whole thing in context he did start by specifying at his work site. I've never seen him treat Prince of the Night bad, and she (or he?) has flat out stated they are Mexican.
I work in a convenience store I'm not sure the proper ratio but we have a lot of minority customers and because of that most, but far from all, of are problems are with minorities. I don't have problems with people because of their race I have problems with them due to their actions. I get that maybe Ridley didn't have the best tact, or maybe wording, but was it really racism?
I get casual RPs are just that casual. They don't have rules, but there are just certain things that rub me the wrong way. First I know my character is a robot, but he's a living Robot. I don't take kindly to people who say they can simply hack Lio. Life is complicated. I can't hack a person's human character, I don't care how frelling smart their character is they can't hack Lio.
Second is my character's Tech. I know this is a self imposed rule of mine, but I take time to develop tech Lio uses. Years of Real life pass before Lio has something new. That said I don't take kindly to someone saying they can hack it or simply copy it. One of the reasons for my self imposed rule is so that I can say I built failsafe and firewalls into the tech. I don't care what powers someone's characters claim to possess you can't frelling account for every possibility. There are somethings you can account for and that someone saying the scanned it. Good for you, your scans give you what? A portion of the picture. Not the whole *squee!*ing thing. The first episode of Star Trek DS9 is a perfect example, the Cardasions scanned the station and saw armaments that weren't there.
The example that brings up my rant is my interdimensional communications hub. A station that started as a nock-off of DS9 admittingly. Now my knock-off more or less just had the shell, my own tech was used. Ridley mentioned he can't communicate between dimensions, I mentioned I can to prove a previous point about some people have different specialties that others. I didn't suddenly have the station just so I could say it. Ridley always going on about estabished facts so here's a few: My first post ever mentions my character is from another dimension. http://www.everypony.com/threads/last-to-post-round-five.16165/page-166#post-607081 Brings up that my body here is a remote. There's a post somewhere in the Last to Post where I mentioned my real body was in another dimension which would tie everything together but I haven't found it yet.
Maybe it's just me cause I'm old (35), but it kind of gets annoying when game topics become back and fourth. Last to Post I get, it's more a conversation topic than a true game, but "Word Association", "ABC", even "React to the person above your kissing you", games like those it's tiring seeing two people take over the games and in some cases taking the games off track. I was told if it's not broke don't fix it the one time I commented in a game about it, but these games do have rules in the first post in some case they are getting broken.
I myself try to adhere to waiting two or three post from other before posting again. I'm sure anyone can find examples of where I've broken this personal rule. "Type the Username with your eyes closed" being a recent example. In that case I wanted to reply to Irregular Apocalypse and his getting my name right on the first try.
Anyway. I don't know if anyone will read this or even care. But I just wanted to get this out of my system. I've already started the rant once in my Ask Me thread. Just felt I needed to finish it.
