2023.03.22 13:46 moses_the_red Death Knight versus Dragon Knight... will Elementalism displace Necromancy for close quarters AOE combat?

Elementalism has been out for a little while, and it is certainly a competitor with Necromancy.
Players must choose which school to pick, and if you're looking to specialize in large group combat, then Death Knights and Necromancy were a strong choice prior to Elementalism's release.
But now we have Elementalism, which allows similar builds using Elementalist spells rather than Necromancy AuW Surge and Miasma, and it seems to be a more AoE focused skill tree.
Will Necromancy be displaced? Will Necromancy lose its charm? Is the meta going to shift away from the Death Knights onto Elemental warrior builds (Battle Mages or perhaps Dragon Knights).
What's the consensus?

2023.03.22 13:38 LordChunggis 6k tax bill for my wife and I- How did we screw up.

My wife and I learned the hard way to follow our taxes more closely throughout the year.
Both of our W-2s show we withheld incredibly little for federal taxes and we dont know why or how. When we filed our W-4s (we both started new jobs early 2022) we couldnt remember anything out of the ordinary that would explain this. We both either claimed 0 or 1.
On a gross income of 36,000 only 600 in federal withholdings were taken in 2022. My wife paid almost 0 in federal.
I've got to dig deeper but all my December paystubs I could find showed 0 in federal withholdings.
Why did my job at least start by taking taxes out and then suddenly stop? The fact my wife's job barely withheld any taxes as well leads me to believe we screwed up something, but I have no idea where.
Any help would be appreciated. A valuable lesson was learned, but I want to know what happened to avoid it again.
Thank you

2023.03.22 13:37 finchlini Fantasy Suite Manipulation

Warning: it's all speculation, but It's what I think has gone down.
There has been this itch at the back of my brain that keeps saying something isn't adding up.
I watched the episode, and there wasn't a hint of shame the morning after the FS with Gabi. He was making eye contact, he was on cloud 9, that man was catching kisses and putting them in his pockets with his whole chest. He was giddy and excited. Everything we hear from him about doubts is voiceover in the background.
Of course Gabi was blindsided about him feeling regret because that man was on the moon when he left, from what we saw.
Like - it's a total possibility that the shame didn't kick in until later in the day, but .... Typically doesn't that "oh no now I gotta confess" feeling kick in, if not immediately after, at least in major dread the instant you wake up?
Here's some speculation for your Wednesday morning.
I think that Zach was fully intending on keeping the FS in the FS. Like straightforward, true older school bachelor, keep pushing the "I'm the second coming of Sean Lowe " to the cameras, and keep whatever off camera. And he thought no one would know the difference.
Except. The producers had to know. Because of condoms. Because there is no way they are both dummies not using condoms in FANTASY SUITE WEEK, right?
But Zach has to obtain them from somewhere. Or, if there's like a candy bowl or whatever, you KNOW TPTB have a headcount.
And I furthermore think he was pushed into that corner by Production. "Heyyyy, so numbers are dropping and we need SL 2.0, so please say this for the white Christian purity crowd fan base to rally, thx". So he did.
And then - everything is going swimmingly, Zach is trusting production because he feels like he's playing along with the script they want , and they hit him with the old "Hey, here's the storyline we're going with..." Or they keep up heaping on the whole Catholic guilt. "OMG what is Kaity going to think?? She's going to be so crushed later if you let her go into her FS without knowing the whole truth, and you gotta be up front..." Or even "We are going to tell her if you don't "
And they leverage him into sacrificing Gabi up to the fanbase as the w**** of Babylon. So that he can have his sinner's redemption in front of the camera, and they can have a nice tidy little endgame "villain" for people to buzz over (which they are...on her own insta 🥺)
And Zach can't look at Gabi because he knows what he's doing.
And while he is fully responsible for his actions and comments and for hurting both Gabi and Kaity... I can't help but feel that production has definitely finessed this entire thing. For TV drama. Because they know their fanbase salivates at this sort of storyline.
I feel gross.

Retro Joshi #433: JWP November 29, 1999, NEO December 2, 1999 + NEO final show, Jd’ December 7, 1999 & GAEA November 27 - December 12, 1999 - The Bloody vs. Yoshiko Tamura
JWP Visit 11/29/1999 Korakuen Hall, Tokyo
Kaori Yoneyama Debut: Kaori Yoneyama vs. Kayoko Haruyama (9:34)
Haruyama continues to show nothing and Yoneyama was on debut. Very basic and boring, they pretty much just did their holds and a couple of basic spots at the end. 3/4*
Carlos Amano vs. Chihiro Nakano and Azumi Hyuga & Acute Sae vs. Devil Masami & Maecela were clipped. The latter had decent action.
Dynamite Kansai vs. Kana Mizaki (6:02 / 8:46)
The first minute was good and it looked like it would be a fun match, but Mizaki injured her knee on a plancha and that was pretty much the end of that. She continued the match and tried to fight, but shouldn’t have. She couldn’t do anything, Kansai gave her a couple of near falls from flash pins and then pinned her after a Splash Mountain. It’d be unfair to rate this.
They showed highlights of 11/13 Akutoshitei Hamamatsu: Azumi Hyuga & Dynamite Kansai vs. Ran YuYu & Takako Inoue and 11/14 Osaka IMP Hall: Azumi Hyuga vs. Command Bolshoi. The latter match saw Bolshoi upset Hyuga, just in case any confirmation that the company weren’t behind Hyuga as their ace was needed.
JWP Openweight Title Next Challenger Decision Match, Lumberjack Rule: Ran YuYu vs. Command Bolshoi (26:40)
The usual story as with most JWP matches. The work was crisp and good, and they did lots of nice moves, Bolshoi gave an impressive performance and Ran always does a good job. That was all there was though and it fell short because there was little selling and they didn’t build the match to go anywhere. It felt like it went for an eternity too. Ran won with her brainbuster to earn the match with Hyuga in December. **
NEO Ladies Neo REAL LIFE 12/2/1999 Korakuen Hall
We’re coming to the end of NEO and they were trying some wacky stuff here. The show was bookended by an angle with Kodo Fuyuki and Kyoko Inoue, which ended up with Fuyuki challenging Kyoko to a Kanaami Death Match on 12/25. They had also been doing an angle with ASARI and Convini Goto II, which ended up with ASARI making short work of him on this show. They also ran a one night tag tournament. The early matches were clipped and not very good. The semi finals saw W Inoue defeat Tanny Mouse & Chihiro Nakano in another nothing match. The other semi final finally saw a hell of a match with LCO vs. Genki & Tamura. LCO came to work this time and gave the younger girls an exciting match and you could buy Genki and Tamura as a threat. I’d go ***1/4 on this one. The main event saw the finals between W Inoue vs. LCO. It wasn’t as good as LCO’s semi final, and lacked drama. **3/4. LCO won the tournament.
The final original NEO tape saw the shows from 12/25/99 and their final show on 1/6/00. The 12/25 show was headlined by the Kanaami Death Match between Kyoko Inoue vs. Kodo Fuyuki. This was a serious match, I’m not going to rate but it wasn’t as bad as you’d think. Kyoko did a good carry job and Fuyuki bled all over the place. This was a precursor to Kyoko’s run in FMW, which I can’t imagine was worthwhile and I’m not sad that I don’t have any of the FMW tapes from that era to watch it. The final show on 1/6/00 saw Kyoko work 6 matches. She worked hard but none of the matches were really worthwhile and they were all clipped anyway. They final match was a 3 vs. 5 tag match with Kyoko Inoue, Mima Shimoda & Etsuko Mita vs. Misae Genki, Yoshiko Tamura, Saya Endo, Tanny Mouse & Yuka Nakamura. NEO would relaunch in March as NEO Women’s Pro Wrestling, but there’s no tapes from them that exist until 2001. NEO couldn’t be described as anything other than a failure. The company started out hot with his first shows, but fizzled out quickly and for the remainder of its run it was the least popular of the seven women’s promotions. Nothing they did seemed to draw much fan interest. I’d blame a combination of things for that - Market oversaturation, uninteresting booking, a thin roster and Kyoko having little drawing power by 1998.
Jd' Get Miracle 1999 12/7/1999 Kitazawa Town Hall
Tiny Jd’ show with one worth match. The undercard wasn’t much. We had the Yuki Lee retirement ceremony. Sachie Abe vs. Obatchi Iizuka (10:32), comedy match, Obatchi came out dressed as a Christmas tree, grabbed Abe’s boobs a lot and put a stocking over her head. DUD. Hiroyo Muto vs. Fang Suzuki (10:11). These two were okay together and there was none of the usual interference, but it was just basic and uninteresting, at least Muto could do her power gimmick against Fang. *1/4. Megumi Yabushita vs. Ranmaru (4;54). Very short match, which was probably for the best given how green Ranmaru is. The action was good while it lasted. *3/4. Cooga, Yuko Kosugi & Sumie Sakai vs. Lioness Asuka, Morimatsu & KAZUKI (11:40). Again on the short side. It wasn’t too bad, it had plenty of action, though it wasn’t anything close to the normal level from Kosugi, Sakai and Lioness, and the other three are stiffs. **
AWF Joshi Title Match: The Bloody vs. Yoshiko Tamura (15:56 / 19:01)
The match this tape was worth watching for. Bloody wrestled most of the match cleanly, and didn’t bring in the chairs until late in the match. They got off to a slow start, and it was fairly dull, lots of holds but they were quite meaningless. It picked up as it went along and turned into a good match. They had good exchanges in the second half. Bloody did the footstomp with Tamura draped over two chairs again like she did to Kosugi, and hit the Dragon Suplex afterward but Tamura survived, coming back with a double wrist armsault to win the belt. ***
GAEA G-PANIC #28 (11/27/1999 - 12/12/1999)
IRON HEART 11/27 Tokyo Korakuen Hall
They did a 6 vs. 6 match which was Aja Kong, Mayumi Ozaki, Kaori Nakayama, Akira Hokuto, Sugar Sato & Chikayo Nagashima vs. Chigusa Nagayo, Sakura Hirota, KAORU, Toshie Uetmatsu, Meiko Satomura & Toshiyo Yamada. It was under 1 v 1 elimination rules with the loser confined to handcuffs. The matches were mostly the short GAEA sprints we’re used to, and it was fun, if they’re going to do those short matches I’d rather them do it in a format like this, though as usual, it was a washed up veteran going over at the end. Chigusa defeated Aja in 50 seconds, then Ozaki quickly defeated Chigusa. Lioness Asuka’s music played and the crowd went wild, but it turned out to be Hirota. Ozaki went through her, and then was beaten by KAORU. Nakayama was next in and beaten in a couple of minutes. It became the Hokuto show for a while as she ran through KAORU, Uematsu and Satomura before being defeated by Yamada - the best segment of the entire match was Hokuto vs. Satomura. Yamada bleached her hair, got new gear and was painted up, she was barely recognizable and looked ridiculous. Yamada vs. Sato went for 8 minutes, which was a lot longer than any of the other matches but wasn’t much good. The final match was Yamada vs. Chikayo, which was longer again, but stop/start with the psychology being the two trying to avoid falling into the other teams corner where they were all handcuffed. Yamada botched her Reverse Gory Special to a scary degree and had to repeat it, giving her the win. After the match RIE dragged a bleeding Takeuchi around. I don’t know how to rate this, it wasn’t any kind of high quality wrestling but it was very entertaining at times, particularly in the first half. I’ll be generous and give them *** for the whole thing.
PROPHECY HITTING 12/12/99 Osaka IMP Hall
Mayumi Ozaki & Akira Hokuto vs. Chigusa Nagayo & KAORU (4:51 / 8:27)
Joined in progress, and just a bunch of spots. Ozaki defeated KAORU with a strangle hold. *3/4
Lioness Asuka & Sonoko Kato vs. Aja Kong & Chikayo Nagashima (6:13 / 8:43)
Also joined in progress, except this match was actually quality despite being so short. Lioness defeated Chikayo with a Tower Hacker Bomb. Lots of yelling after the match seemed to be setting up Chigusa & Satomura vs. Lioness & Kato, which would be cool, but it's hard to get excited for GAEA matches when they usually just do a sub-10 minute sprint, especially when Chigusa is involved. ***

GiantsWire summing it up.
"The New York Giants have had a strong offseason thus far, solidifying the quarterback and running back position and upgrading at inside linebacker, tight end, defensive line, and wide receiver. But general manager Joe Schoen still has work to do.
Here are the top remaining needs for the Giants with the 2023 NFL draft just a little over a month away."

2023.03.22 12:59 Specialist_Monk_3016 Tech Middle Manager preparing for CoastFIRE

Hey all
I'm currently working in tech as a middle manager, I've had previous leadership roles but decided to take a step back and cruise a little over the last 12 months.
After 20 years in the industry, I'm feeling as though I'm really coming toward the end of my employed career, my day to day is made up supporting younger developers at the start of their careers and I'm finding software development increasingly stratified with little autonomy in most businesses I look at.
M, 43 - N/W is currently around £391K.
We have around £130K remaining on our mortgage therefore I'm targetting a CoastFI value of around £480K which I believe I will hit in the next 18 months.
At the moment I'm struggling to envisage how I could position my current role as a CoastFI option given my day to day management responsibilities.
Part of my thinking it to return to a technical track to open up more remote contracts, but keen to hear from other tech managers that have hit CoastFI.

2023.03.22 12:55 Jokse Looking for recommendations for a 2.0 system for 1500-2000€

Little background.
I have a TV wall already setup in my living room. It's total 2.25 meters long + 0.75m wide dish cabinet (or w/e you call, it's a giant cupboard with glass doors). So I have a total of 2.25 meters for my TV + audio setup + a hollow part that is 0.75m wide in the middle of that, that I will use for the AMP + something else (likely a PS5 in the future). Now I already have a 65" TV placed there and that takes up ~1.44 meters, leaving me with about 40 cm (~40.5 cm as far as I see with a measuring tape) on both sides for two speakers.
Important to note, is that we DO NOT want a sub. We have demoed some up to 1000€ and we never liked the sound. But even if we did like the sound - we just don't have where to put one. Sure we could get a wireless one and place it on the other side of the room, but that just sounds weird to us.
Now we already demoed some speakers and amps. Sadly I don't remember any of them, because I only wrote down what we liked the most and that was:
Speakers: Monitor Audio Bronze 100 for 525€ AMP: Bluesound Powernode N330 for 999€
The speakers we liked, because they had a decently punchy bass, and since we're not getting a sub - that is quite nice to have.
The AMP we enjoyed because it did sound much better than a 750€ Denon one (don't know the name, don't ask). It also has eArc, is very small and is also a network player (which is not a priority, but hey - it's nice to have isn't it?)
My question is: am I getting the best I can here? It seems to me like the speakers are too cheap and don't come close to being 50% of my setup cost (which I see recommended a lot). Problem is, when I asked the store managers for recommendations, they couldn't really recommend anything else with the same bass performance. But I'm sure that they should carry something right?
I am buying everything in Lithuania, and mainly from this retailer: Speakers (manufacturer list on the left, should have most models): https://www.audiovideo.lt/en/home-audio/garso-koloneles AMPS (same as speakers): https://www.audiovideo.lt/en/home-audio/namu-garso-stiprintuvai
Maybe you guys have some better recommendations for a 2.0 system?

2023.03.22 12:52 thedjotaku newbie question: How do I get my heart rate up/(and maybe related- how to go faster?)?

Training for my first tri with Garmin's heart-rate based training. I am having a hard time getting higher than zone 3 (and even then, having a hard time getting there). Up to this point I've raced in swimming and running, but not cycling, so I'm kinda working from scratch here.
My bike is a 21 speed bike: 3 gears at pedals and 7 at back wheel. My thought process had been to put everything at the biggest gear since that causes me to have to push with my legs the hardest. While that does raise my heart rate a little, at those gears, I'm unable to to move my legs fast enough to get an aerobic/cardio workout. That is to say, my legs get tired, but I don't feel out of breath or like my heart is going jump out of my chest (like I do when I sprint at swimming or running).
If I put my gears to the lowest setting I can spin my legs like crazy, but I'm barely going anywhere and sometimes it gets "dangerous" because my legs are able to go so fast they fly off the pedals and end up tangled w/ the pedals. (I am not doing clips or anything since this is my first tri and I didn't want to spend a bunch of money on something I might never do again)
I'm sure the solution is something relatively obvious, but as someone who has only ever biked casually, I'm not seeing it.
Help, please?

2023.03.22 12:35 Swampuma Could you help me to find a location for my novel?

Hi to all, here's a thing - I'm thinking about a little novel that taken place somewhere at NYС, I guess?
Story short plot: one old lady became a horror writer, earned decent money and a reputation. At the presentation of a new book, she meets a young man who is actually a robber and secretly plans to break into her house. But when he does that in the night, he is captured by an old woman and learns that she does not invent her stories, but writes down what her crazy brother, possessed by demons, tells her. She keeps brother in the basement, because from time to time the demons need to ... absorb people's souls.
So I need to understand where a single old lady (50+ years old) in New York around 1890s-1900s could live in order to describe this place. The heroine has enough money to own a house, but she is not a millionaire, she cooks and cleans by herself (to keep a secret in the basement); she's popular, but mostly with readers, not the kind of popularity that calls for parties and an active social life. Something a like alternative version of Mary Shelley. I think she even uses a author's pseudonym to keep privacy.
It should not be outside the city, but not in a busy place either, I think. Could you give me a hint that I can use as a start point for my deep research? I've never been at NYC (my bad) so I can't even imagine where from I should begin to dig.

2023.03.22 12:33 Tall_Strategy_2370 Admissions Accomplished - UPDATED - Part 2

See link below for Part 1- Reddit - Dive into anything
I hope everyone enjoys this story. I worked on condensing what I wrote the past few weeks and changed some things about the characters - I personally like this story arcs better.
TL;DR of where they go to college at the end.
Chapter 5: RD Results and Final Decisions Matthew It was a typical afternoon at the Green Hills High School library, and Matthew was sitting at one of the tables with his laptop, anxiously refreshing his email. Today was the day he would receive his regular admissions college results. He knew his life was about to change drastically, and he couldn't help but feel a mixture of excitement and dread as he awaited the news.
One by one, the emails started to come in. Matthew held his breath as he clicked on each of them, revealing the decisions that would shape his future. As he opened each email, he was met with a series of acceptances: Columbia, Princeton, Duke, UPenn, Brown, Dartmouth, Cornell, Johns Hopkins, Carnegie Mellon, SUNY Binghamton, and SUNY Stony Brook. He was waitlisted at Harvard and Caltech but rejected at MIT, Stanford, and Yale.
Matthew's heart raced as he read through the acceptance letters, hardly believing the incredible opportunities that were now within his reach. He couldn't help but feel a sense of pride and accomplishment, knowing that all his hard work and dedication had paid off.
The email from Columbia caught his eye, and he opened it with particular interest. As he read through the letter, he discovered that not only had he been accepted, but he had also received an excellent financial aid package and had been accepted into Columbia's Undergraduate Scholars Program (CUSP). Matthew's eyes widened in disbelief, realizing that attending his dream school was now a genuine possibility.
As the news began to sink in, Matthew called his parents to share the exciting results. They were ecstatic, congratulating him on his incredible achievements and assuring him that they would support him in whichever decision he made.
Over the next few days, Matthew carefully considered his options, discussing them with his family, teachers, and friends. As he weighed the pros and cons, he found himself drawn to Columbia again and again. Its vibrant urban location, prestigious academic reputation, and the incredible financial aid package made it the perfect fit for him.
With a deep breath, Matthew finally made his decision. He clicked the "accept" button on Columbia's online portal, sealing his commitment to attend the university in the fall. A sense of relief and excitement washed over him, knowing that he was about to embark on a new journey that would shape the rest of his life.
In the following days, Matthew shared the news with his friends at Green Hills High School, who were thrilled for him and eager to hear about his decision.

Chapter 6: The Aftermath
Priya and Rachel Rachel and Priya sat on the steps outside Green Hills High School, their college decisions in hand. The sun was shining, but Rachel couldn't shake the cloud that hung over her head. She glanced at her list of acceptances and rejections, then looked over at Priya's results.
"Congrats on getting into Brown, Priya. I'm really happy for you," Rachel said, trying to force a smile.
"Thanks, Rachel. I'm excited, but I'm more worried about you. Are you okay?" Priya asked, concerned for her friend.
Rachel sighed, "I can't help but feel disappointed, you know? I got rejected by so many top colleges. All I have are NYU, SUNY Binghamton, and SUNY Stony Brook, and waitlists at Cornell and Johns Hopkins."
Priya placed a comforting hand on Rachel's shoulder. "Rachel, you're an amazing writer and a talented student. NYU is a fantastic school, and it's in the heart of New York City – the perfect place for a budding writer like you. Besides, you never know what might happen with the waitlists."
Rachel looked down at her results, then back at Priya. "I guess you're right. It's just that you got into so many prestigious schools, and I can't help but feel a little envious. I saw you were waitlisted at NYU, but I bet they only did that because they're afraid you'd choose another school over them."
Priya smiled reassuringly. "That's kind of you to say, but you shouldn't compare yourself to me or anyone else. We all have our own paths, and NYU seems like a perfect fit for you. Plus, I'm genuinely thrilled about your acceptance there."
Rachel nodded, taking a deep breath. "You know, my parents were actually happy about NYU. I was really surprised. I guess I should focus on the positives and make the most of the opportunity. Thank you, Priya. You're a good friend."
Priya hugged Rachel. "That's what friends are for, Rachel. I know you'll do great things at NYU, and we'll still keep in touch no matter where we are. We're in this together."

Chapter 1: Beginning of Senior Year The crisp autumn air swirled around Green Hills High School, a prestigious public high school nestled in the suburbs of New York City. A sense of urgency and anticipation permeated the school, as the college admissions season had arrived. The pressures of academic achievement and looming deadlines weighed heavily on the shoulders of the senior class, who each bore their own unique dreams and aspirations. Among them were twelve students, each with distinct backgrounds and stories, all vying for a chance to secure a place at their dream colleges.
Ethan Green, an academically gifted slacker, found his once-promising future in jeopardy due to personal struggles and substance abuse. However, a stunning 1590 on the SATs breathed new life into his aspirations, rekindling his desire to attend the University of Chicago. With the unwavering support of his twin sister Julie, a straight-A student with a passion for music, Ethan began the arduous journey of repairing his tarnished transcript. Julie, on the other hand, had her heart set on Duke University, where she hoped to pursue a career in journalism.
Priya Rabinowitz, a brilliant, mixed-race overachiever, was the epitome of a perfect student. Her dream was to attend Brown University, driven by her passion for social justice. Despite her many accomplishments, she harbored a secret fear of not being "good enough." Her best friend, Rachel Lee, shared a similar sentiment, feeling inadequate in comparison to her academically perfect older brother Brian, and her high-achieving friend, Priya.
Matthew Hernandez, a top student with perfect grades and a near-perfect SAT score, dreamed of attending Harvard University, but his impoverished background made paying for college seem like an insurmountable challenge. At the same time, David Anderson, the school's star quarterback, yearned to attend Stanford and study business, but feared that his intelligence would be overshadowed by his athletic prowess.
Minho Park, a computer science prodigy who moved from South Korea at a young age, aimed to attend a prestigious school like MIT, Caltech, or Stanford. Alicia Davis, one of the few black students at Green Hills High School, aspired to attend Georgetown University and become a lawyer, her warm personality making her a natural confidante to her peers.
Alex Madrigal, another top student with a passion for math, science, and soccer, focused on getting into Stanford University. Meanwhile, Taylor Chen, a recently out nonbinary student, sought a college that would provide a safe and supportive environment for them to thrive.
Raj Singh, a senior at Green Hills High School who excelled in debate, hoped to attend Yale University. Lastly, Mary Sinclair, a talented artist who faced the pressures of being a double legacy at Brown University, worried that she may not truly be qualified for the prestigious institution.
As the college admissions season unfolded, these twelve seniors navigated the treacherous waters of self-discovery, friendship, and ambition, their journeys intertwining and shaping one another in ways they could never have imagined. The story of Green Hills High School's senior class was one of hope, heartache, and the relentless pursuit of dreams, all set against the backdrop of an unforgiving, competitive world.
Chapter 2: Applying Early The sun had barely risen on November 1st, the day when early college applications were due. A flurry of last-minute edits and double-checking consumed the lives of Green Hills High School's seniors as they prepared to submit their applications. The twelve friends, united by their dreams, sat together in the school library, each nervously finalizing their college applications.
Ethan, his heart pounding, reviewed his application one last time before hitting the submit button for Early Decision at the University of Chicago. He felt a mixture of excitement and trepidation as he considered the possibility of attending his dream school.
Julie, sitting beside her twin, took a deep breath and clicked submit on her Early Decision application to Duke University. She allowed herself a brief moment of relief, knowing she had poured her heart into her application and showcased her love for journalism.
Priya's hands trembled as she applied Early Decision to Brown University, her anxiety about being "good enough" momentarily set aside in the hope that her passion for social justice would shine through.
Rachel, her heart racing, sent off her Early Decision application to Columbia University, trying to shake off the pressure from her family and praying that her talents as a writer would be enough to secure her a spot at the prestigious institution.
Matthew, his jaw clenched, submitted his Restricted Early Action application to Harvard University, knowing that his future depended on receiving sufficient financial aid. He hoped that his stellar academic achievements would make it impossible for Harvard to turn him away.
David's eyes were filled with determination as he sent off his Restricted Early Action application to Stanford University, after completing his football tryouts. He hoped that the admissions officers would see his potential both on the field and in the classroom.
Minho, his fingers tapping anxiously, submitted his Early Action application to MIT. He had poured his heart into his computer science projects and was eager to showcase his passion and talent in his application.
Alicia, with a supportive smile from her friends, applied Early Action to Georgetown University. Her dream of becoming a lawyer seemed closer than ever as she hit the submit button, the pride she felt in herself evident in her eyes.
Alex, filled with anticipation, sent off his Restricted Early Action application to Stanford University. He knew that his academic achievements and passion for soccer had the potential to make him stand out in the competitive applicant pool.
Taylor, their hands shaking with nerves, applied Early Decision to Swarthmore College. They hoped that the accepting environment of the school would allow them to embrace their nonbinary identity and pursue their artistic passions.
Raj, his heart pounding, submitted his Restricted Early Action application to Yale University. He knew that his father would have been proud of his accomplishments, and he hoped that his debate skills and determination would be enough to secure a place at his dream school.
Mary, her face a mixture of hope and worry, applied Early Decision to Brown University. Despite her double legacy status, she longed to be admitted based on her own merits and her passion for art, rather than her family connections.
As the twelve friends hit the submit buttons on their applications, a collective sigh of relief filled the library. They had taken the first, crucial step in the college admissions process, their dreams laid bare for the admissions officers to see. The waiting game had begun, and their futures hung in the balance, but for now, they took solace in their shared journey, knowing that whatever the outcome, they had each other's support.
Chapter 3: Early Admissions Results
It was a chilly December evening when the early decision and early action results were released. The twelve friends gathered at Ethan and Julie's house, huddled around their laptops and phones, each waiting with bated breath for the email that would determine their future.
Ethan opened his email first, his eyes widening as he read the words, "Congratulations!" He had been accepted to the University of Chicago! The room erupted in cheers and applause as Julie hugged her twin, her pride in his accomplishment shining in her eyes.
Next, Julie nervously opened her own email, letting out a squeal of joy as she discovered that she had been accepted to Duke University. Her dream of studying journalism at the prestigious institution was now a reality, and her friends celebrated with her, sharing in her happiness.
Priya's hands shook as she opened her email from Brown University, only to find that she had been deferred. Her heart sank, and she tried to mask her disappointment with a smile. Rachel, whose application to Columbia University had been rejected, wrapped an arm around her friend, offering silent support.
Matthew's face fell as he read that his application to Harvard had also been deferred. He fought back the fear that his family's financial situation might prevent him from attending his dream school, even if he were ultimately accepted.
David beamed with pride as he announced that he had been accepted to Stanford University to play football. His friends cheered for him, although Alex couldn't help but feel a pang of jealousy, knowing he was more academically qualified. Alex's own email from Stanford revealed that he had been deferred, causing the disappointment to settle heavier in his heart.
Minho's face lit up with joy as he discovered that he had been accepted to MIT. His friends congratulated him, knowing that his hard work and dedication to computer science had paid off. Alicia, too, had reason to celebrate, as she was accepted to Georgetown University, one step closer to her dream of becoming a lawyer.
Taylor's heart raced as they opened their email from Swarthmore College, only to find that they had been deferred. They tried to remain hopeful, knowing that the college search was far from over.
Raj's face paled as he read that he had been rejected from Yale University. The disappointment stung, but his friends rallied around him, reminding him of his incredible accomplishments and assuring him that he would find the right college in the end.
Finally, Mary opened her email from Brown University and was met with the news of her acceptance. The room filled with cheers and congratulations, but Priya couldn't help feeling a twinge of jealousy. While Mary was a strong student, Priya's test scores and grades had been higher, and she knew that Mary's double legacy status had played a role in her acceptance.
As the evening came to an end, the twelve friends had experienced a roller coaster of emotions. Some had reason to celebrate, while others were met with disappointment, jealousy, or uncertainty. Despite the various outcomes, they knew that their friendship would remain steadfast. Together, they would continue to navigate the ups and downs of the college admissions process, their bonds only growing stronger as they faced an uncertain but hopeful future.
Chapter 4: A Few Random Scenes Before RD Decisions Income Brackets The twelve friends gathered at a local park on a sunny Saturday afternoon, enjoying each other's company as they picnicked and played games. As the sun began to dip in the sky, they sat on the grass in a circle, sharing their thoughts and experiences.
Alicia, ever the good listener, brought up a topic that they had all noticed but rarely discussed: their different income brackets. It was a sensitive subject, but Alicia felt that it was important for them to acknowledge and understand the unique challenges each of them faced.
Matthew, who came from a low-income family, hesitated before speaking up. "You know, sometimes it's really hard being one of the poorest students in our school. I've had to work a part-time job to help support my family, and that's meant less time for studying or extracurriculars." His friends nodded in sympathy, recognizing the additional pressure that Matthew faced in trying to balance his responsibilities.
Ethan, Julie, Minho, Alicia, and Taylor, who all came from middle-class families, shared their own struggles. "It's not always easy for us either," said Julie. "We may not have to worry as much about making ends meet, but we still feel the pressure to work hard and achieve our dreams without having a financial safety net to fall back on."
Priya, Rachel, David, Alex, and Raj, who were considered upper middle class, acknowledged the advantages they had but also shared their perspectives. "Sure, we have more resources," admitted Priya, "but it sometimes feels like there's an expectation for us to succeed no matter what. That pressure can be really overwhelming."
Mary, who came from an upper-class family, listened to her friends' experiences and nodded in understanding. "I know I'm fortunate," she said softly, "but it's not always easy being seen as the 'rich kid.' Sometimes people assume I don't have to work hard, or that I don't have my own problems. Money can't buy happiness, and it can't guarantee success either."
As the conversation continued, the friends found themselves opening up about their fears, insecurities, and the unique challenges they faced because of their different financial situations. They began to understand each other's perspectives more fully, realizing that no one had a perfect life, regardless of their income bracket.
The sun had almost set by the time the twelve friends decided to pack up and head home. As they walked together, they felt a renewed sense of unity and support. They knew that their friendship was more important than any financial differences, and they were grateful to have one another as they faced whatever challenges life had in store for them.
The twelve friends were seated in the school library, working on a group project for their history class. Their task was to research and create a presentation on the American Revolution, and each student was responsible for a specific aspect of the project.
As they discussed their findings, Julie mentioned a piece of information that she couldn't quite recall. "I remember reading something about the Battle of Saratoga, but I can't remember the exact details," she admitted, frustrated.
Ethan, who had been quietly browsing through a book, glanced up and said, "Do you mean the fact that it was a turning point in the Revolutionary War because it convinced the French to support the American cause?"
Julie looked at him, surprised. "Yes, that's exactly it! How did you know?"
Ethan grinned sheepishly. "I saw it in one of the books we were using for research last week. I just happened to glance at the page, but it stuck in my head."
His friends exchanged glances, impressed by Ethan's uncanny ability to remember things he had only seen briefly. It was a talent they had all noticed before, but never really discussed.
Curious, Minho asked, "Ethan, do you have a photographic memory?"
Ethan shrugged. "I guess you could say that. I've always been able to remember things I've seen or read, even if it's just for a short moment. It's just something my brain does."
The group marveled at Ethan's unique skill, and they began to ask him questions about various historical events and figures. To their amazement, he was able to recall an incredible amount of information, often down to the exact page number where he had seen it.
As the group continued their project, they couldn't help but feel grateful for Ethan's extraordinary memory. His ability to retain and recall information made their research more efficient, and it quickly became clear that his talent would be a major asset in their project.
The friends were not only impressed by Ethan's photographic memory but also inspired by the way he used his gift to help the group. It was a reminder that each of them had their unique strengths, and when they worked together, there was no challenge they couldn't overcome.
Rachel The twelve friends had gathered at Priya's house for a relaxed weekend hangout. As they lounged in the living room, a pile of their old middle school yearbooks lay on the coffee table, stirring up nostalgic memories and laughter.
Raj picked up one of the yearbooks and flipped through the pages, pausing when he came across the "Creative Writing Club" section. He looked up at Rachel and said, "Hey, I remember you won a couple of writing contests back then. Are you still writing?"
Rachel blushed and nodded. "Yeah, I've been working on a few short stories recently."
Her friends exchanged glances, intrigued. "Would you mind sharing one with us?" Alicia asked gently, her eyes full of genuine interest.
With some hesitation, Rachel agreed and disappeared into her bag, retrieving a small notebook. Her friends gathered around her in anticipation as she flipped through the pages, searching for the story she wanted to share.
"Okay," Rachel said, taking a deep breath. "This one is called 'The Timekeeper's Daughter.'"
As she began to read, her friends listened intently. Rachel's words painted a vivid picture of a young girl named Lila, who lived in a world where time was a tangible currency. Lila's father was the town's Timekeeper, responsible for managing and distributing time to the citizens.
The story was filled with imaginative details and intricate descriptions that transported the friends into Lila's world. Rachel's writing was both elegant and engaging, seamlessly weaving together the threads of the plot as the story unfolded.
As Rachel's voice carried them through the emotional highs and lows of Lila's journey, her friends found themselves hanging onto every word. They felt the young girl's joy and sorrow, her determination and fear, and the ultimate resolution of her story.
When Rachel finally closed the notebook, the room was silent for a moment before it erupted into applause. Her friends marveled at the beauty of her storytelling, praising her extraordinary writing abilities.
"Rachel, that was incredible!" Julie exclaimed. "I felt like I was right there with Lila in that world. Your descriptions were so vivid, and the story was so unique and compelling."
"Yeah, you have a real gift," David added, his admiration evident in his voice. "You should consider writing a book someday."
Rachel blushed again, overwhelmed by their compliments. As her friends continued to praise her creative writing talents, she felt a newfound sense of confidence and determination to continue honing her craft.
For the twelve friends, the experience of listening to Rachel's story brought them closer together, as they were reminded once again of the diverse talents that each of them possessed. Together, they celebrated Rachel's extraordinary writing abilities and the unique gifts that each of them brought to their circle of friendship.

2023.03.22 11:55 NummeDuss Gold player Anivia tactics - Am I doing things right?

Hi, I am an Anivia main, hardstuck gold in soloq for several seasons. I actually think that its more my decision making in the game which sucks and keeps me from climbing rather than my ability with the champion. At least thats my impression. In flex I am relatively comfortable in playing the bird vs plat players. BUT I would still like some feedback on my general ideas on playing the champion, maybe I have some habits that I convinced myself to be great but are actually garbage.
Runes:Comet + Precision vs everything that outranges me (my logic: matchups are hard so better go for scaling) and vs MalzahaYasuo/Fizz
Electrocute+Precision vs everything other than mentioned before
Minor runes: attack speed and adaptive force mr or armor (if enemy team is full ad I take double armor + adaptive force)
Summoners: Flash + TP 90% of the time (love the little egg+tp interaction as a bonus)Flash + Ignite 10% if the enemy comb suggests that I will murder my opponent then I go for that. Usually when I am in a good matchup and enemy has a farming jungler.
Items: Dorans - Tear - RoA (maybe lvl1 shoes before)/Liandrys - Socerers - Seraphs - Stopwatch - Zhonyas/Frozenheart - Frozenheart/Zhonyas - Demonic Embrace (fat are the items I always buy)
Playstyle:Comet: use e to poke whenever comet and manaflow are up and save q until gank or enemy all in. With this build I usually dont really try to get superiority in lane. Just waiting for enemy mistake or jungler to come. Especially vs Yas I really have great stats with this. I think comet dmg and slow has a lot of value, as his windwall is kinda ass to play against. But he never windwalls only my e + comet so great success.
I like using my wall offensively. I very rarely save my wall. So if there was a teamfight I would rather use my wall in the beginning of the fight to split the enemy team than saving my wall for the possibility that my team needs to disengage.
I generally like baiting enemy champions to come to close range. For me its much easier to hit q when the enemy is close. I like to place my ult under myself and place a wall in the middle so I just run around my wall and let enemy chase me. Using E on cooldown and q whenever its up. Also Zhonyas is nice here. I killed countless melee champions cause they thought they can run me down while chasing me around the wall. However alot of my team mates mentioned that Anivia should not voluntarily go in melee range. I think different about it.
My wall logic in general: While I am quite reliable in hitting the w+q combo I dont really often use it. I think in alot of cases it is better to go q +e + aa and then depending on the duration of the fight or the hp of my opponont I will use the w when the opponent is literally running for his life. Sure I will miss a few q's before but usually I rather lose the mana than having cd on the wall in a play will not lead to a kill - mostly I use w+q in situations when my opponent doesnt have any sustain like pots etc.
I like to use my passive as a bait. So I dont mind losing it. I think the CD is quite short and enemies in my elo do often forget about my passive and go for super greedy plays that then heavily backfire (typical yasuo players). Without passive I will play saver obviously.
Roams - according to my team mates my biggest flaw - I hate roaming with Anivia. I also hate to follow roams. I must be far ahead to consider roaming. Reason is that despite having the tools to fight basically anyone who might catch you on the way Anvia is doomed if the q misses. At least before you get some stacks on roa. I often dont like to take my chances and rather fast push mid and go for a plate. Another reason being that pushing turrets with Anivia is quite save imo. Q and wall are both good for disengage and ult is a great tool to zone the enemy away if engaging on you means that they need to walk through it first. According the facecheck I am taking first turret in 52% of my games.
Anyway I could go on but its already alot and probably nobody is still reading, so if you want to comment on that go ahead.
e: skin of choice: Batnivia
