Has anyone had any experience with corsets?

A historical costumer friend of mine says that they aren't (and weren't historically) all that bad as a bra alternative if you don't tightlace but I just feel like any place that had (if there are any out there in this our 21st century) actual corsets as undergarments as opposed to the corsets certain steampunk styles have you wear over your clothes wouldn't have stuff that forgiving to people our size or I'd give them a try

2023.06.01 10:33 Fair_Photographer I wish it could stop.

I will be downvoted to oblivion for what I want to say. But be it.
It’s funny. The flair you guys use is called Fashion and Style - No Body Shaming. And yet what I see here is exactly that. I seriously do not understand - this sub is mostly full of women. Let’s face it. Men are marginally present here. I thought we, as women are super sensible about the way we look. At least I am. And we should support each other in that matter. I love fashion and I have my own unique and, I want to believe, good taste and style. I am on plus size of bodies spectrum. And I think I dress for that. There are days I am super fragile about how I look. There are days I feel sexy or powerful because of clothes I wear. All are my choices. People might like it or not. But they mostly complement me. Or stay QUIET.
Therefore, I seriously do not get what is happening here for last few days. Those constant post about her fashion choices. Yes, she has straight body. No waist definition. Her legs are skinny. She doesn’t pay that much attention to what and how she wears cloths. She loves expensive cloths. She doesn’t know how to put them together. Like so many of us here. Let’s be honest we might have 3% of fashion professionals present here. The rest of us shop in Zara, HM or thrift stores. Nothing wrong with that. We wear “white shoes after Labor Day” outfits. And it’s OK.
I don’t like her. BUT not because she has no fashion style but for her excruciating character. For her being manipulative and narcissistic master.
Can we please STOP with the body shame. This is exactly what give Sugars and Reddit the ammunition against this sub. And will eventually shut us down. Not the intellectual and moral discussion we have here. Which I love. I even love gossip. It’s not harmful. But the crazy theories about lack of babies, moon bumps and her body shaming posts. The amount of hate some of you have against here is astounding. You are not better than Sugars. Sorry to say that. But it’s a fact.
Ok, now you can press the downvote button. Goo ahead. You only prove my point. I say what I wanted to say.
If my post will be deleted I understand. We have MODs and they rule this place.
I wish everyone a lovely day. Take care.

2023.06.01 10:03 Ascending2U 22 [M4F/FF/FM] #Atlanta & Surrounding Areas - Excited & Outgoing Young Geek/Athletic Gym Rat Seeking Adventurous Woman For A Real Ongoing Friendship; Pegging Welcomed Lol

Hello there and Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening Fellow Redditors!
Before you continue, as a young man who knows what he wants, I would like to state what I am NOT seeking:
I'm not a man looking for loads of digital nudity. I would definitely much rather see you in real life and get a surprise!
*** Also, I'm on NoFap. The basic explanation means I don't masturbate and waste my seed into kleenexs, lol. (Going almost 200 days strong), so unbridled, primal virility are aplenty with me!
FOR COUPLES: If you are interested in me being your third, please talk amongst each other and make sure both of you agree, so we can all proceed smoothly on our journey together!
TLDR: Summary of me: I'm a young nerd/geek with an outgoing personality, shredded physique, and contagious smile/love of laugh laughter. I'm seeking a like-minded woman to befriend and have an ONGOING, and most importantly, RELIABLE mutual relationship (friendship) with. I'm also very open to something serious as well!
I am also a HUGE Giver and love extended foreplay. I am straight & fully comfortable in my sexuality and open to a vast array of Kinks/Potential Fantasies inside and outside of the bedroom!
PSA: For those looking to stay safe and keep their circle small or require discretion due to certain circumstances (work or personal), I'm your guy!
*** Also open to the potential of seriousness & exclusively should we take that course!
Hello there,
I am a young, well-spoken, and outgoing individual sporting an amazing sense of humor & chiseled physique. I deeply enjoy good conversation filled with laughter and the warmth it brings and love to please as I am very eager to learn, try, and experience new things!
Things I enjoy OUTSIDE of the bedroom:
Things I enjoy Inside of the Bedroom include everything vanilla plus A LOT (virtually open to exploring everything except extreme pain) more that I'd love to discuss face to face.
My Ideal Person:
I am searching for a cool, laid-back and relaxed woman to enjoy mutual fun INSIDE and preferably OUTSIDE of the bedroom as well. The type of person who can enjoy a mind-blowing session while also being able to laugh at various blunders or bloopers that happen during or after the fun, go for nature walks with a lustful twist, and/or seeing a movie on the couch or in theatre!
NO Pressure, NO Insecurity, just cool peeps having an amazing, hot time while creating passionate memories together.
Thanks for stopping by and reading. Shoot me a chat request, and I look forward to meeting you!

2023.06.01 09:26 _witchbxtch_ Body dysmorphia and Anxiety is taking a toll on my confidence in identifying as Bisexual

I got myself into a long term relationship with a man because I was convinced that most girls weren’t into plus size girls my size. And I can’t even say I’m cute a plus size girl, I have big arms, and thighs and stomach and a constant double chin. I struggle with my body image every day. Recently I’ve been questioning the relationship I’m in because I don’t really think I’m that into men. But again that anxiety came back that if I tried dating women they would more than likely reject me because of my body size. I feel like guys worship big girls but I don’t see women doing the same. Am I crazy?

2023.06.01 09:26 BellasDaDa618 How many pelts can your horse hold?

I've searched a few times to no avail to answer the question of, "how many pelts can my horse carry?" This being in reference to the medium-sized, stackable pelts (e.g., pronghorn, whitetail deer, wolf, or beaver). I first downloaded RDR2 2 to 2-½ years ago and I'm on another run. Making money, to me, can be a grind at first and one of the best ways is by simply selling pelts to a butcher or trapper (preferably).
I wondered how many pelts could my horse carry and on each run I took to Google which ultimately led me to Reddit. Multiple times someone has asked the same question and in grand fashion, Redditors prove useless time and time again in never answering the OP's damn question. A straightforward question by someone asking for help on how many pelts can be carried garnered results like, "I have 12", "I took 22 to the trapper", or "at least 50". Wrong, wrong, wrong.
A total disregard for the original question and an evolution into a discussion having absolutely nothing to do with OP's post is far too common on Reddit. I think the stereotype is true, and most are based on some truth, that Millennials really are the "distraction generation". Most here are Millennial, and you guys are awesome, but you need some Adderall smoothies or some shit. My old, 49-year Gen X ass is actually diagnosed with ADHD (and bipolar disorder as well as an anxiety and panic attack disorder) and though shiny things or the jingling of car keys can cause me to star off into the sky at times, my pill keeps me pretty centered, so y'all gotta focus. 🙃
Okay, I got my little jab in as always on Millennials. Don't be hatin'. I got mad props for y'all. Nothing but respect. Ease up and laugh at yourself. No one gets out alive.
Now that I have digressed...
For once, I think I can't blame Redditors for not answering yet another question and once again going off topic. I think I understand why the question of how many pelts can be stored on your horse hasn't been answered because it's a question that will take a chunk of your life from you to answer. I set out to do it; to answer the question (no, not THE answer to life, the universe, and everything...42).
I have just played, in three sessions, over the course of the last two days, for approximately 20 hours. I didn't dedicate 100% of that time to just hunting, but easily 18-18.5 hours was invested in hunting. I began near Larned Sod, headed north to O'Creagh's, west to Cotorra Springs, southwest past Cattail Pond to Wallace Station, through the valley following the Little Creek River, south past Owanjila into Strawberry, then followed the railroad tracks starting at Riggs over the water via trestle to Flatneck, and finishing through The Heartlands back to Larned Sod. I made this loop four times with a lot of deviations. I'm so done with this. I'm thinking there might not be a reasonable limit...
I CURRENTLY HAVE 101 PELTS, plus the one large elk pelt. I reached 85 and took my final break and decided I'd at least see this to 100 and go one over to see if that was possible. There is one thing I did learn and I doubt it matters how you play (I'm on PS4). There is a limit per slot in horse cargo if you save. I had 85 pelts, as I said, and that included 13 poor deer pelts and 12 good deer pelts. I saved, turned off my PS4, and when I fired her back up and loaded my save game, the 12 and 13 were both defaulted to 10 each. So, that happens. As far as how many total goes...who the hell knows? Way more than 101, that's for sure. Eventually, someone will fully answer this, but it's not going to be me. 18 hours just hunting? I'm good. I'm going to go get my couple hundred dollars for this extinction level carnage I just waged across the land.
Peace ✌️ and a deuce, deuce yo.

2023.06.01 09:17 yesbillmyfriendd Hybrid is a game changer.

So I make decent money and live in a HCOL State, not just area. Debt free and choose to not pay someone else’s mortgage, I am essentially saving for a house, the fast way.
Why would I shell out $1600+ for a box surrounded by people I don’t even like. Yes I can comfortably afford to pay $2000 a month for rent, but why? It is so dumb if you actually think about it.
My car Payment is under $500 and gets 40 mpg and it’s AWD and a full size suv. I have the option to run it all day long. No more having anxiety running the engine all day for A/C or all Night for the Heater. A hybrid cycles between electric and gas engine, less wear and tear.
Plus I work 6 12 hour days a WEEK, why tf would I need an apartment anyways lmao. If all I’m doing is essentially just sleeping there for 2 GRAND A MONTH!
House or “Homelessness”
Another thing is the stigma of being “house less” or “homeless” mother fucker I make 80k a year, fuck you and your opinion.

2023.06.01 09:05 MyDogLovesmooch The Art of Efficient Packing: A Guide for the Modern Backpack Bag User

The Art of Efficient Packing: A Guide for the Modern Backpack Bag User
As a woman who's always on the go, I've learned a thing or two about how to pack effectively. Whether you're a student with a pile of books, a working professional lugging a laptop, or a traveler setting off on a weekend adventure, packing your backpack efficiently can make your life so much easier.

Not only will you know exactly where everything is, but you'll also save your back from unnecessary strain. So let's get right into it!

Image Credit: MART

Efficient Packing Principles

1. Start with a Clean Slate
Empty your backpack completely. Yes, everything must go! Even those tiny scraps of paper at the bottom and that forgotten candy wrapper. This clean slate will give you a clear view of all the space you have available and all the compartments you can use.

2. Categorize Your Items
Group your belongings according to their purpose. Put all your tech gadgets together, all your documents, all your personal items, and so forth. This will allow you to determine the most logical and convenient way to store each category in your backpack.

3. Make Use of Every Compartment
Most backpacks have various compartments designed for specific purposes. There's a spot for your laptop, a place for your pens and pencils, and even pockets for your water bottle and keys. Utilize these compartments wisely. The main compartment should hold the bulkier items, while the smaller pockets can be used for easy-to-misplace items.

4. Follow the Weight Distribution Rule
Weight distribution is essential when packing a backpack. The heaviest items, like your laptop or books, should be packed towards the back (closest to your spine), as it's better for your posture. The lighter items can go towards the front.

5. Roll, Don't Fold
When it comes to packing clothes in your backpack, try rolling them instead of folding them. This saves space and prevents wrinkles. Plus, you can see everything you've packed at a glance, making it easier to find what you need.

6. Keep Essentials Easily Accessible
There's nothing more frustrating than needing something urgently and having to rummage through your entire backpack to find it. Keep items you frequently use, like your phone, wallet, and keys, in the front pockets for easy access.

7. Make Use of Organizing Tools
Small items can easily get lost in a backpack. Consider using packing cubes, pouches, or zip-lock bags to keep these items together. You can even color-code or label them for added convenience.

8. Stay Flexible
Remember, efficient packing isn't about stuffing your backpack to the brim. Leave a little room for flexibility. You never know when you might need some extra space for that new book or a souvenir from your travels.

Case Study: Mastering the Art of Packing with the Mancro Backpack

A practical illustration of efficient packing is the Mancro backpack. This chic and robust backpack offers the perfect canvas for our packing strategies, with its range of features designed to maximize convenience and organization.

This backpack features a spacious main compartment, ideal for storing your bulkiest items like textbooks or a laptop. By applying our weight distribution rule, your heaviest items should be placed closest to your back, ensuring optimal comfort when carrying the backpack.

Moreover, the backpack is equipped with multiple pockets of varying sizes, each tailored for different purposes. For instance, there's a designated compartment for your tech devices, smaller pockets perfect for stationery or keys, and a front pocket for your most-used items, fulfilling our principle of keeping essentials easily accessible.

Lastly, the bag's design leaves room for flexibility – a key principle in our efficient packing guide. With its expandable side pockets and additional room in the main compartment, you're always ready to accommodate that extra item or two.

Thus, the Mancro backpack serves as an excellent real-world example of our packing strategies in action. By applying these principles to this backpack, or any other, you can elevate your packing game to new heights of efficiency and ease.

Give Efficient Packing a Try

Efficient packing is truly an art form, a beautiful ballet of organization that can simplify your life in ways you never thought possible. So give these tips a try and transform your backpack into a mobile haven of convenience and style. Happy packing!

2023.06.01 09:03 fivetenash 34 [F4M] From California, to Anywhere - Seeking Someone to Make Travel Plans With

Hey there, I'm Ash.
I'm currently unwinding from a month-long vacation starting in Alberta, Canada, and ending in Mexico City, Mexico. It was an amazing experience, but it definitely would have been better to have someone to enjoy it with! So that's why I'm here, I'm hoping to find that special someone for future adventures.
As for a bit about me: I'm a 34-year-old mixed-black woman from the San Francisco Bay Area. I'm 5'5, plus-sized, with short hair and piercings. I'm well-educated, well-traveled, and well-read. I'm a lover of friendly and passionate debates, taking short and long road trips, going to shows, films, and trees of the kush genus. Forever a fan of accents, dad jokes, and generally funny dudes.
While I'm open to chatting with men (30-39) from all over, I'm particularly interested in connecting with those who speak Spanish or French, either as a first or second language. It would be fantastic to brush up on my language skills while getting to know each other. :)
If any of this resonated with you, please feel free to send a message or chat. I didn't use a throwaway so feel free to browse my history for a bit more about me.

2023.06.01 09:00 aPoliteCanadian 2023 Themed Painting Contest - Four Elements: Water, Earth, Fire, Air. Details inside! Sponsored by Duncan Rhodes Paint Academy and Two Thin Coats Paint

The 2023 Themed painting contest has now begun, and you have until July 31st to paint your minis! Read on for more details, and please read the stickied FAQ comments before asking questions.


Duncan Rhodes Paint Academy and Two Thin Coats Paint
At the Duncan Rhodes Painting Academy they have one simple aim. To give you the skills to paint any miniature you want. They believe that anyone can paint and get a result that they are happy with. The only thing it requires is patience and someone to point you in the right direction.
With a plethora of free tutorials on their Youtube channel plus members only videos and their Two Thin Coats line of paints, you’ll be painting in no time!

Guest Judges

Along with some of the contest organizers, we try to have talented artists join as guest judges. Please say hello and give a big thanks to our guest judges for this contest:


This contest will have a theme that you should aim to have your piece fit in some way. That theme is:
Four elements: Water, Earth, Fire, Air
Your piece should embody one or more of these four elements in some way. How exactly is up to you!
During the community vote, entries will be scored on Theme. Any entries that score below the average overall Theme score will not be able to continue as a finalist, regardless of how high it scores in other areas. After finalists are decided, the judges will not rate Theme.
Part of the challenge of this contest is interpreting this theme. For that reason, unpainted entries and final submissions will be accepted with no comment or regard to if it is on Theme or not. Contest organizers will not answer questions on if something is or is not on theme.


There are three skill levels covering five categories. You may only have one entry for this contest, which means you can only enter one category. You cannot enter both the small and large categories.
  • Beginner - Small format
  • Beginner - Large format
  • Intermediate - Small format
  • Intermediate - Large format
  • Advanced - Both Small and Large format
Skill Levels
Examples of each skill level can be found below:
The skill categories are based on general skill level and no techniques are restricted to a specific category. This means Beginner and Intermediate entries are welcome to try advanced techniques such as non-metallic metal (NMM), object sourced lighting (OSL), or any other technique that might be considered “advanced”. This also means they are not required at any level (even if they are more likely to be used at higher skill levels).
Small format and Large format
General size details are listed below. Please see the stickied FAQ comment for more details about small and large if you still have questions.
Small format: this is for entries that are essentially a single character. Either one character, one character on a mount (like a horse or motorcycle), one character with some smaller secondary characters/creatures (eg. animals, few smaller secondary characters, a corpse, etc).
Small format pieces are usually on more traditional bases, like a simple flat base, a display plinth, or even no base at all. Small format pieces can also include some more elaborate bases or diorama elements if you would like, but it is not required and a very large/elaborate display base/diorama may move you into the Large category.
See the below album for some examples that fit the Small format:
Large format: this is for larger single figure pieces, entries that feature multiple characters of the same size, or more complex/larger scale dioramas or displays. Large format also includes busts.
The Large format category is not for a unit of single figures on separate bases. If you are painting multiple figures, they need to all be on a single display base or diorama.
See the below album for some examples that fit the Large format:
Enter whichever skill and size category that you feel your work most closely matches the examples of. Do your best to enter the correct category, but know there is no punishment if you accidentally enter the wrong one and we move you later on.
Organizers have final say on which submissions will end up in which skill and size category. At any point during the contest before the community vote, the organizers reserve the right to move entries to a different skill and/or size category if they feel the entry is miscategorized (even accidentally). Only your final contest piece will be considered while doing this, and not any previous work. When you submit your final piece, you will have the option to opt out of being moved to a lower skill level, but you cannot opt out of being moved to a higher skill level or a different size category.
Special thanks to everyone who gave us permission to use all of the above examples for the skill and size category examples!


To enter this contest, you need to fill out the form below before the end of July 17th:
This entry form includes a section to submit your unpainted entry picture(s). Unpainted entry pictures must include the following clearly visible and not be edited/photoshopped in:
  • Your Reddit username
  • The date (any standard date formats is ok)
  • The word “surprise”
  • Your chosen unpainted mini(s)
Here are some examples of unpainted entries that would and would not be accepted:
Entry pictures need to be posted to minipainting using the post flair “Unpainted Contest Entry”.
If you need more than one picture for your unpainted entry, like if you have multiple minis in a large entry, please make a gallery post that includes all your images and not make separate posts for each image. When you make this post, automod will send you a message explaining what to do next!
Entry pictures do not need to include the base, basing materials, or extra bits you might add during the painting process, but everything in your piece should be painted during the contest, base included. It is also fine if you add a few extra bits to your piece during the painting period that were not in your original unpainted entry. Adding simple bits like pouches, weapons, or a simple headswap are fine, but your unpainted entry picture should represent about 90% of what your final piece will be.
Do not use pre-painted/pre-finished bases or minis. Everything in your final painted entry must be painted during the contest, after you have made your unpainted entry.
“Unpainted” is not completely literal, and there is some flexibility in what your unpainted entry can be (including primed, based, etc). See the stickied FAQ comments for what “unpainted” actually means!
Note: Banned users cannot enter this contest

Rubric and how entries will be rated

The full rubric for this painting contest can be found here:
This rubric will be used for both the community vote, as well as by the judge panel when rating the finalists.
During the community vote, entries will receive a total score made up of four parts:
  • Composition
  • Execution
  • Palette
  • Theme
The five entries in each category that receive the highest total score during the community vote will advance as finalists to be rated by our panel of judges. During the final judging period, finalists will not be rated on Theme.

Final submissions

Final submissions will begin being accepted on July 18th and end on July 31st at 11:59 pm/23:59 PST. If you did not submit an unpainted entry that was accepted, you cannot submit a final painted piece.
Once final submissions open, a new announcement will be made with links to the final submission form for your final pictures along with full final submission details. You do not need to timestamp these images, or include your username/surprise. If you finish early, take your pictures and hold onto them until July 18th!
Final submission requirements:
  • Must be posted to minipainting with the “Four Elements: Final Submission” flair (this flair will become available on July 18th)
  • Must not be posted to minipainting before July 18th (WIP posts are fine before this date, as well as posting final images to other social media platforms or subreddits)
  • Must include a picture of your entry from the front*
  • Must include a picture of your entry from the back*
  • Must include one picture of your entry next to a standard bottle or pot of hobby paint (ie. vallejo, citadel, army painter, etc) or a ruler for scale placed vertically next to your mini
*If it makes more sense to photograph your mini from the left and right sides instead of the front and back, you may use those angles instead. The important thing is we see as much of your mini as possible.
The paint pot/bottle may be included in either the front or back photos, or be a separate photo.
You may include more pictures if you would like, but you must include the above at minimum.
Final submissions cannot include misleading lighting, filters, image editing (beyond basic coloulevel adjustments), AI adjustments, etc.
Once your final submission is accepted, you cannot change or update it in any way. Make sure your piece is finished and your pictures are good before you submit it! Links to submit your finished piece will be included in a new announcement post on July 18th. Remember not to post your final pieces to minipainting before this date.
The first picture in your gallery will be used as the preview image during the community and judge voting. You cannot request another image be used instead, so make sure to arrange your images correctly when you post your gallery.

The Community vote and finalist judging

From August 6-12, the community will be able to vote on all the finished submissions to determine the top five finalists in each category. An announcement post will be made when this starts that will include a link to the voting survey.
Voting will be open to all members of minipainting, even if you did not enter the contest. In this survey you will rate each entry (with a rubric provided to explain the rating system), and the entries with the highest overall score will go on as finalists. This process will be very similar (if not identical) to our previous contests. If we detect cheating during the voting period, we will not hesitate to disqualify an entry.
After the finalists are determined, the judge panel will review all finalists and rate them with a slightly expanded rating system following the same provided rubric. The judging period will go from August 16-22.
Winners will be announced on August 26!


  • Two randomly chosen winners will get a Two Thin Coats paint starter set! Each entrant that submits their final painted mini will get one entry for this draw
  • Winning entries will be eternalized in our Hall of Fame
  • First place in each category will be shown off in our sidebar
  • The highest scoring entry for each of the four elements will also be noted in the hall of fame! (Even if it did not become a finalist or otherwise place)
  • Optional special user flair for Finalists, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, as well as the user(s) voted most helpful in the WIP megathread and users with the highest scoring for each element (even if you weren't a finalist)
  • Bragging rights!
The dates:
  • June 1: Contest starts
  • July 17: Last day to enter your unpainted mini
  • July 18: Final Submissions open
  • July 31: Last day for final submissions
  • August 6-12: Community vote
  • August 16 - 22: Finalist judging
  • August 26: Winners announced!
All dates start at 12:01am/00:01 and end at 11:59 pm/23:59 Pacific Time
Please see the stickied comments for frequently asked questions. If you have a question that is not answered in the FAQ, please ask it below!

Disclaimer: I do not own Bayonetta in any shape or form. It belongs to Sega and Platinum and is published by Nintendo. Moving on, if you believe Bayonetta 1-3 are considered adult, insane, and over-the-top, then prepare yourself because this outline will go full throttle and hold nothing back. The plot outlines that I have planned for "Bayonetta 4" will be insane and push boundaries that I don't think any Bayonetta game has done thus far in absurdity and graphic violence. So please, prepare yourself for the insanity that is about to unfold before reading.

Heaven's Feel: The Outbreak of War Begins
The screen pans out to reveal multiple Sin Demons in the distance headed towards the aircraft, some even materializing on the very roof that the duo stood on.
"Are those-?!" Jeanne questioned, mouth agape.
"Sin Demons" Viola interrupts.
"They're all Sin Demons. I don't how or why, but if they get in our way, we cut them down!"
"Alright then, I suppose that this moment calls for special back up," Jeanne declared, turning her hips to summon a Umbran headset.
It was time to talk with the pilot.
"Enzo, I think you've earned a reward for having followed all of my orders-! I'll be granting you full access to all the missiles on this lovely slayer of mine!"
She then raised her left hand all the way up, sassily snapping her fingers.
The screen shows multiple missile launchers loaded with AGM-114 Hellfire's springing out from the sides of the aircraft as well as the undercarriage opening, revealing a huge, M134 Machine Gun.
Enzo's voice could be heard panicking from the headset.
"What the FUCK?! I don't know how-!"
"There's a small pamphlet underneath your seat with all the necessary instructions. Read that and you'll be learning in no time!" Jeanne elegantly retorted.
Enzo grumbled to himself, scrambling to find the pamphlet. It was either that or death via plane crash.
Heaven's Feel: The Outbreak of War Ends
Heaven's Feel: Come on, Make your Move Begins
The screen cuts to Jeanne and Viola, readying themselves for battle!
The Sin Demons on the roof have fully materialized, taking their first few steps before shrieking at the duo.
The Book of Infernal Demons then appears on screen, revealing new entries: "Devourer of Will: Sin Apathy", "Wailer of Lament: Sin Despair", "Feaster of Petrification: Sin Fury", and "Husk of Boundless Animosity: Sin Spite".
Sin Apathy: It has a male, pitch-black body with draconic features, red eyes, and a black miasma surrounding it. It is able to stretch out it arms and use its venom-covered claws to dig into its enemies, inflicting a special poison capable of draining its victims will to live and organ failure.
Sin Despair: It has a tall, abnormally thin, female figure, with pale skin, dirty white hair, red eyes, and long red claws. It is constantly wailing and crying tears of blood from its torn-off face and becomes unhinged when approached. It is a vicious killing machine that uses ultra-sonic screams, and endlessly swipes at its enemies with its claws.
Sin Fury: It is a wyvern now, capable of releasing poisoned, black thorns that makes its enemy sluggish. Moreover, they're able to traverse through its environment at faster speeds because of their large wings. Lastly, its eye has been enhanced, being able to release magical shots that can permanently petrify opponents.
Sin Spite: It has a tall, bulky, male figure, with small, red wings, a long red tail, and red, scaley-skin. Additionally, it carries a golden trident capable of releasing waves of energy. It has black eyes and is able to gape its mouth at terrifying degrees, revealing the multitude of sharp teeth that it uses to chomp it enemies.
The book then closes before heading straight for the camera, cutting back to Jeanne and Viola.
Their backs are side-to-side as they pass through blood-red, demon-infested skies!
"We've got work to do!!" Jeanne screamed, summoning All 4 One!
"I couldn't have said it better myself!!"Viola yells, taking out Mab Dachi from its scabbard on her back.
Heaven's Feel: Come on, Make your Move Ends
Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness Metal
The screen then shows the duo separate to fight their own enemies.
Jeanne is lunged upon by four Sin Despairs in the air. They intend to gouge her eyes out and dismember her limb-by-limb!
"You bitches think you've got a chance?! Then so be it!!" she yelled, shooting multiple charge shots at them!
Almost all of them were disoriented, but one had dodged all the bullets, going ahead of the rest to kill Jeanne. However, it was met with an unexpected Heel Stomp from Jeanne that smacked it from above and onto the ground!
"You ugly bitch!" Jeanne yelled, running to the Sin Demon before using Combo 15!
During this, Jeanne was continuously pistol whipping the Sin Despair, releasing a Wicked Weave that knocked the demon up into the air before following it up with a devastating Wicked Weave that kicked it off the roof!
Despite this, Jeanne was not out of the clear as other Sin Despairs had regained their balance, now closing the gap with her as they prepared an ultra-sonic scream!
"Shut the FUCK UP!" Jeanne retorted, jumping into the air before using Concussion Step to slam their asses to the side!
After that, she used Blink Charge to reach one of four Sin Fury's flying in the air, gracefully Air Kicking it down. However, when she landed on the floor, two of them descended upon her, shooting out balls of purple energy from their eyes!
"Hah! You worthless vermin!" Jeanne taunted, dodging at the last second before transforming into a kettle of red moths.
Witch Time was now active as the colors of environment became a transparent purple and Jeanne sped up.
First, she used Full Moon Shoot to launch the Sin Fury that she knocked down into the air before using Tetsuzanko to push it towards the two Sin Fury's headed towards her. Then, she used Blink Charge again to reach that same demon, using Astounding Touch to kill the three with multiple punches!
Afterwards, she quickly used Heel Stomp on the remaining Sin Fury to get it onto the floor before using Gut Wrench Heel to finish it off!
Witch Time had ended as the colors of environment returned to normal and Jeanne landed on the floor.
The screen then showed five Sin Spites releasing spouts of red water from their mouths towards Jeanne!
However, she remained calm and poised, leaping into the air to avoid the oncoming explosions before yelling aloud with a powerful pose!
Suddenly, a demonic bird had pierced clouds in the sky before descending onto the roof of the aircraft, opening its massive wings. It released a gust of wind that sent multiple Sin Spites flying backwards!
"So much for 'Sin Demon', how pathetic!" Jeanne laughed, gently touching Malphas as he vanished into particles.
The screen then cut to the front of the aircraft to show missiles being launched at Sin Demons in the sky, resulting in a never-ending number of explosions. Meanwhile, the M134 Machine Gun, was gunning down multiple Sin Demons that approached the aircraft!
Enzo is then shown in the pilot's seat growling as he pressed multiple buttons.
As for Viola, she was dealing with her own set of enemies.
Three Sin Spite's had released turquoise, diagonal slashes of energy towards her from their tridents in the air!
"Not on my watch!" she yelled, jumping into the air to avoid the attack.
She then used Shredder to reach the Sin Spite in the middle, quickly using After Burner Kick to stun it. Afterwards, she jumped on its body, going directly above it to use Star in the Black.
"These fuckers have nothing on me!" she excitedly yelled, releasing a barrage of darts that exploded on impact!
The Sin Spite's went down hard as the explosion damaged their wings!
Viola then aimed Mab Dachi downward, readily preparing her next attack!
"Time to die, baby!" she shouted, using Hungry Hi-Hat as she landed onto the roof of the aircraft, puncturing it with her katana!
Cheshire's ginormous head was seen coming out from a demonic portal and straight into the air! He had a devilish grin on his face, mouth drooling at the sight of the delicious feast that Viola had prepared for him!
The screen then cuts to three Sin Spites comedically trying to avoid his mouth. However, all attempts failed as his mouth grew wider in size. Afterall, Sin Demons were "beyond a delicacy" in Inferno, Cheshire thought. He didn't know when he would be able to devour one again. So, he wouldn't let a single drop of blood go to waste as the Sin Spites landed into his hypnotic mouth.
Cheshire is seen wiping blood off his lips with joy before disappearing into particles.
Afterwards, Viola heads towards Mab Dachi, pulling it out from the roof before feeling a sudden stinging sensation on her back.
In response, she quickly does a back walkover, turning her head mid-air to see a Sin Despair.
"Jeez, these guys are aggressive!" she thought.
She then proceeded to sweep kick the Sin Despair, seeing it fall flat on its face before using Tom Tom Balloon to launch it in air!
Then she used Combo 11, following it up with a perfectly timed Bass Boost that thrusted the Sin Demon onto a group of Sin Apathy's as they stretched their hands towards Viola.
"I don't think so, assholes!"
All the Sin Demons were knocked down onto the floor. However, Viola wasn't done, Cheshire still had to have his fun.
"CHESHIRE!" she shouted, throwing Mab Dachi onto the floor.
A huge portal then formed from where the Katana landed. Cheshire emerging from it soon after!
He looked onward at the sight with jubilation before making a tall jump in the air. All he needed was one good pounce to end these Sin Demons!
So, he readied a new attack, Blue Tenka (点火). He would engulf himself with blue flames, turning into a ticking time bomb that would detonate the second he slammed onto something. Now, it would render him temporarily unavailable as he would die. However, his knack for theatrics made him want to take out his enemies with a bang.
”Knock'em them dead, Cheshire!” Viola screamed.
The screen then showed the Sin Despair and group of Sin Apathy looking at Cheshire’s ignited body with horror as he drew closer to them.
All Cheshire could do was look at their faces was a cheeky grin.
“It's over for these chumps!” he thought.
A multitude of Sin Apathy’s flew off of the aircraft while others suffered a most horrible execution.
“Woo-hoo!” Viola cheered, giving Cheshire a thumbs up before running towards Mab Dachi to regroup with Jeanne.
Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness Ends
Heaven's Feel: He goes, She goes Begins
The screen begins to pan out from the aircraft, revealing that the trio was within proximity to the red creature. However, the atmosphere was becoming more unnervingly tense, the closer they got.
Furthermore, Jeanne and Viola were surprised when they saw various Sin Demons emerging from the red creature. It was almost as if the creature itself was a conductor of sorts, serving as an alternative to the Human World than those of the Gates.
Eerily enough, however, there was another situation at hand as hordes of Sin Demons had ceased to pursue them and were retreating.
The screen shows all the Sin Demons heads towards to the creature before getting into a strange formation and flying in place. They were now facing the trio with stoic expressions and readied battle stances.
"This behavior is... unnatural, especially for that of a demon. Why are they acting as its guards?" Jeanne questioned.
"Do they not want us to reach that thing all the way in the back that badly?" Viola replied.
Despite this, the duo became more preoccupied the entities head, realizing how it was solely focused on them. The Golem mask had no eyes, but the red Core at the center was shifting to indicate that it was looking at the aircraft.
Viola couldn't help but feel shivers down her spine at the unsettling sight.
"Jesus Christ... What the hell is all this?" Viola yelped, gasping at the sight.
As for Jeanne, she didn't know what to make of the situation. She was too busy analyzing the entity as best she could and was stunned by what she was saw at the very top. It was a golem, one that had shaped itself into that of a mask.
"What is this thing? I've never seen anything like it. Let alone the fact that it uses a Golem. However, that shouldn't be possible. Not without-! "
Heaven's Feel: He goes, She goes Ends
Heavens Feel: What Else, We Can Do? Begins
The screen shows to the shocked expressions of the duo as the entity began charging up an attack. Its body began to repeat the motion of an ocean wave. Then, a huge, demonic portal appeared from above the creature!
As a result, the two began feeling a strange sensation in their stomach's before starting to gag and fall on the floor. They felt their vision begin to blur, a loud ringing sound in their ears, and magic being sapped from their bodies.
"What is...happening?!" Viola sputtered, trying to cover her ears with her hands.
"Ugghh! This!" Jeanne coughed out, hearing disconnected spurts of a distorted, female voice chanting in Enochian.
The screen then cut to the entity becoming a vibrant red before thin, slime tentacles emerged from its body, lengthening in size as they soar to multiple Sin Demons, touching their backs and merging with them!
The screen then cut to a Sin Insidious glowing a shiny red before growing even larger in size as red, metallic armor encased it.
The distorted female voice could be heard giggling before fading away, along with the demonic portal.
The screen then shows the terrifying face of a Sacrilege Insidious before cutting to the Book of Infernal Demons opening. It turned all the way to the end, revealing that page entries have been ripped off. The book closes thereafter as it cuts to the duo.
Suddenly, a loud screeching could be heard from all the Sacrilege Demons as they beamed towards the aircraft, making their way to it!
Meanwhile, Enzo remained unaffected by the strange sickness inflicted upon Jeanne and Viola, becoming distraught at the sight. He was screaming at the top of his lungs by what he was witnessing!
So, he began to check up on Jeanne and Viola, hearing them groaning in agony.
"Are you guys, ok?!! Jeanne?! Viola?! Answer me dammit, please!!" he shouted.
"We have to get OUT OF HERE!!"
The two were beginning to stand up as the pain in their stomachs subsided now that the voice was gone.
"Ugh! That was awful..." Viola said, picking herself up before looking at the entity.
"AAAAHHHH!!!" she shrieked, voice cracking as she stared at the Sacrilege Demons headed towards them!
"We have to get out of here*-*!"
Heavens Feel: What Else, We Can Do? Ends
The All-American Rejects: Real World Begins
"No! This is where we make our final stand Viola! The lives that have been lost can't be for naught!! This ends now!!" Jeanne interrupts, declaring her intentions before striking a pose, uniform coming undone!
A portal appeared on the roof as a torrent of her hair went into it. Then, another portal formed in front of the aircraft as a huge, vicious turtle began pulling itself out of the portal.
The screen then cuts to the Book of Infernal Demons. It opens up to reveal one of Jeanne's new allies, "Deceiver of the Seas: Aspidochelone". It is a humongous, ungodly looking, dark-green turtle with a spiked shell, razor-sharp teeth, and black eyes.
"Go as fast as you can Enzo! It's time to go FULL THROTTLE!!!" she shrieked into her microphone.
Suddenly, the aircraft began accelerating to absurd speeds as a demonic portal beneath the demon disappeared and was replaced with an Umbran portal. This, in conjunction with the speed at which the aircraft went, kept the demon in place.
However, Jeanne wasn’t done yet. At the snap of her fingers, the Umbran portal began rapidly spinning, turning the demon into a makeshift drill. One that would ram down all the Sacrilege Demons that stood in their way!
She then began instructing Enzo to avoid a place crash.
"Follow my orders Enzo! If I say 'up' you go up, if I say 'left' you go left. Got that?!"
"YES!!" he obediently responded.
"Good!" Jeanne replied, turning to face a surprised Viola.
"As for you Viola, you're going to need to hold on tight!" she said, making a dramatic pose before staring at the red creature in the distance.
"If these mothafuckas won't give us an opening, then I'll make my own!!"
The screen then pans out in a manner similar to Space Harrier, showing the aircraft flying towards the red entity as Aspidochelone mowed down various Sacrilege Demons.
Meanwhile, Jeanne was making dramatic quotes as she ordered Enzo to move all throughout the sky, bobbing and weaving as she delivered Wicked Weaves with Madama Styx in a QTE to knockback Sacrilege Demons that approached the aircraft from its sides. As for Viola and Enzo, they were hanging on for dear life, wondering how Bayonetta and Jeanne did this for years on end.
Eventually, they reach the boss at the end, Sacrilege Insidious. He was more deadly than before, but Jeanne was not one to back down from a fight no matter how strong an enemy was.
It began to shoot ginormous, red lasers from the ends of its six wings towards the aircraft, all of which were dodged at the last second thanks to Jeanne's masterful instructions, leading to Witch Time.
Jeanne then closed the gap between the aircraft and the abhorrent demon to pierce its large, third eye.
This cycle would repeat itself until six eyeballs, each belonging to one wing, would start attacking the aircraft. In this case, when one eye approached, Enzo would use the aircraft's missiles and minigun to briefly stun the eye.
Afterwards, Jeanne would use multiple Wicked Weaves to punch the eye before ripping it from its socket and crushing it a gush of blood.
Later, when the last eyeball was removed, Jeanne figured that it would be a good time to end the monstrosity for good!
"Viola! What I'm about to do is very dangerous, I need you to protect me at all costs!" she shouted at a nauseous Viola.
"Yes Jeanne!" Viola replied, hands on her knees as she tried to keep her body standing.
Thankfully, she recovered in time, taking out Mab Dachi and preparing herself for enemies.
"Hopefully this will end all the shit that's been going on" she thought.
The screen then cuts to Jeanne as she prepares herself for the Demon Sin Ritual, Aspidochelone vanishing soon after.
"DO O IA JEANNE. CNILA D COMSELHA ODO ANANAEL. TURBS C BABLON ZONAC CIAOFI BALZARG. FAFEN NIIS!!" she screams, ripping her heart out as her costume comes undone.
She then begins to dance in a sensual manner, breaking it down and doing a split.
The All-American Rejects: Real World Ends
Bayonetta 3: Queen Magick Begins
Suddenly, a giant portal appears from behind the aircraft!
Queen Styx was then seen flying out of it with her butterfly wings in a horizontal manner, making her way towards the Sacrilege Insidious!
It was in that moment that a QTE appeared. Queen Styx began brutally pummeling the Sacrilege Insidious with her fists, gouging it large, third eye with both of her hands!
Then, she would begin tearing the Sacrilege Demon apart, ripping it in half!
The Sacrilege Insidious cried out its last breath by dying. However, Queen Styx was far from done from done!
She would use this opportunity to strike the red creature with the remains of the demon she killed!
Queen Styx slammed the slabs of meat against the red entity!
The screen shows the creature remain standing, but its body was viciously trembling now. The core was now eyeing Queen Styx with hatred as she began taunting it with a stylish dance, ending off with a dramatic pose.
So, it began sending even more Sacrilege Demons towards her as she got up from the floor and began charging a purple Kamehameha. The Sacrilege Demons began picking away at Queen Styx's skin, but she didn't care. Jeanne gave her an order and she will follow it through to the end.
"KA...ME...HA...ME...HAAA!!!!" Queen Styx screamed, unleashing a humongous ray of energy close to point-blank range!
All that could be seen now was a gigantic, purple explosion eviscerating the red creature in its entirety, leaving behind an immense black mark on the ground as clouds of smoke and fire billowed in the air.
Or, at least, that was what Jeanne had hoped for...
Bayonetta 3: Queen Magick Ends
Heavens Feel: I Beg You (Instrumental) Begins
The red creature remained untouched…
The attack had failed to leave even a single dent on it!
Jeanne was left aghast at the site!
"How could it have failed?" she quietly stated, shock overwhelming her.
She started going pale, almost falling to the floor before Viola caught her in her time.
"It failed. I failed..." Jeanne repeated to herself over and over again.
"Jeanne! You have to snap out of it! Please!!" Viola cried out, voice going unheard.
In the Platinum Witch's mind, all she could think about was how one of her strongest attacks had failed. How Cereza, her best friend, her Umbran sister, would have overcome the fear that entered her body the moment she heard about Sacrilege Demons. How Cereza would have taken out the monstrosity with a blaze of glory. Not making a single mistake in the process. Cereza would not have failed the way she did!
"" Jeanne stuttered in a dream-like state.
All Viola could do was hold her as she stared at the escalating situation between Queen Styx and the red creature.
It had gone awry the moment Jeanne stopped dancing. Troops of Sacrilege Demons had begun attacking a vulnerable Queen Styx and feasting on her flesh!
She tried to wave them away with her arms but was overwhelmed. Moreover, two Sacrilege Insidious had emerged from the red entity, ready for revenge after Queen Styx slaughtered one of its brethren.
They released red lasers from the ends of their wings, striking her in the face!
"AAAHHH!!" she cried out, pools of blood pouring from her eyes as the lasers permanently blinded her.
However, it was this scream that snapped Jeanne out of her state. She began raising herself off the floor with Viola's help before looking on with terror, realizing that she had to do something now or risk Queen Styx dying!
"You bastards!! You'll PAY for this!!!" she shouted, gripping her heart even tighter and dancing with vigor.
Queen Styx was rejuvenated with strength and began to blindly claw away at her enemies with her nails with excessive force. She even attempted to use Royal Escort to keep some of the enemies at bay.
However, she was quickly stung by one of the tails of a Sacrilege Insidious, interrupting her attack.
This did not go unnoticed by the red entity as it decided to take advantage of the situation.
First, it released a red force field from its body, spreading throughout the vicinity before fading away.
Viola had noticed this, seeing the Sacrilege Demon become enraged.
"Great! As if shit wasn't bad enough already!" she complained.
Afterwards, the creature began using the slime beneath Queen Styx to shoot out immense slime tentacles to immobilize her.
One had immediately come out from behind, wrapping itself around her neck and pulling back with tremendous force!
She groaned in agony, startled by the sudden attack. However, the red creature wasn't done yet.
Queen Styx was struck again by other tentacles from all angles!
Two had latched themselves around her wrists while another four enveloped her waist, pulling her down and onto her knees.
"AAAHHH!!" she moaned, Sacrilege Demons eating away alive!
Jeanne was infuriated at the sight, gritting her teeth with such force that she could feel some break!
She would do everything possible to free Queen Styx and proceeded to screech the loudest she ever had!
Her dancing became more rigorous and provocative than ever before as panic seeped into her body, painfully invigorating her muscles to free Queen Styx!
The screen then cut to Queen Styx resisting the restraints, managing to crush the tentacles on her wrists with her hands.
She was beginning to set herself free now. Things were finally turning up for her.
Heavens Feel: I Beg You (Instrumental) Ends
Ferry Corsten: Fire (Mike on Fire Ver.) Begins at 0:55
Meanwhile, Viola was left to deal with various Sacrilege Demons were able to land on the aircraft.
She was exhausted beyond belief but knew that she had to fight. It was that or have her soul mercilessly consumed. So, readied Mab Dachi and goes to strike a Sacrilege Fury.
However, the katana bounced off the demon as if it were invulnerable, leaving no mark on it.
"Holy shit! What are these guys made of?! " She exclaims, switching to her pistols before shooting the Sacrilege Fury.
All of the bullets had ricocheted off the armor of the Sacrilege Fury.
Viola stared at the uninjured Sacrilege Demon with hopelessness, looking around as more began to surround her and Jeanne. However, she remembered would happen if she faltered now.
"Who will protect Jeanne if I'm down for the count?! Everything is riding on me now! I have to act quick or risk everything falling apart!" she thought.
So, Viola deciding that it was now time to use her fairy form, taking Mab Dachi out.
"Daddy, please give me strength!" she pleaded, stabbing herself in the stomach!
The screen then pans out to reveal a blinding light engulf Viola before revealing new fairy design. Her fur body was a mauve purple while her long hair was a seashell pink color. Furthermore, the stained-glass on her body were shades of the colors red, pink, and yellow. Lastly, the stained glass from her face was now gone and refitted as a gorgeous diadem on her forehead.
"It's time to get down to business!" she shouted, teleporting through various Sacrilege Demons to get to the middle of the roof before using Combo 2 to stun lock all of them at once!
Then, she teleported again to reach a Sin Fury in the air, using Combo 1 to stagger it before jumping off of its body to show off a new move, Crystal Drive.
The screen shows Viola create a large crystal in her hands with magic before throwing it down into the ground, impaling a Sacrilege Demon onto the floor. This is a process that she would repeat multiple times, sporadically teleporting from place to place and striking at different angles. However, it would all be aimed at the spot that she first struck.
Lastly, we see her teleport to the position that she first threw a crystal (briefly winking at the camera) before creating another crystal, one larger than the rest, and throwing it down to deal the finishing blow!
The sounds of glass breaking could be heard as the impact from the last crystal caused a white explosion that sent multiple Sacrilege Demons off the roof!
”How’d you like that?!" Viola taunted, satisfied with herself.
Despite this, some Sacrilege Spites and Apathy’s had remained on the roof, but it wasn’t something that Viola couldn’t handle.
So, she teleported to one of the Sin Spites before having to dodge in the nick of time.
“Perfect!” She thought, preparing to make use of Witch Time.
Except, there was no Witch Time...
“What the-!” she shouted, faltering in attack before a Sacrilege Spite slammed her with its large tail.
Ferry Corsten: Fire (Mike on Fire Ver.) Ends
H. O. T. D: 07 Pursuit Begins
The attack was so strong that it deactivated Viola’s transformation and sent her flying towards Jeanne, knocking her down and onto the side the aircraft!
They were now hanging onto the aircraft’s railings as Sacrilege Demons began inching closer to them, resulting in the aircraft tilting to the side.
Enzo could even be heard yelling through the Jeanne’s microphone.
”What the hell is going on?! Why is this fucking thing TILTING?!” he raged, questions going unanswered.
Jeanne and Viola were now dangling on the plane's railing, arguing with each other.
"VIOLA!" Jeanne angrily yelled, grabbing onto the railing with her left hand and wrapping her right arm over it. She still had her heart in her hand and didn’t want to risk dropping it.
"What the fuck did you do?!"
"I don't know, ok!!" Viola yelled.
"I tried to use Witch Time, but it didn't work! It's like someone deactivated it or some shit!"
Jeanne could only roll her eyes in disappointment before seeing Queen Styx failing again. She had been so close to removing the bounds off her body. Now, that would never come to be.
However, the duo had more immediate matters to attend as Sacrilege Demons were almost upon them. They figured that they had to jump and fly to safety.
Although, it wasn’t until Jeanne tried summoning her butterfly wings that she was unable to.
“What the-?! I can’t… I can’t summon my wings!” Jeanne shouted with grave concern.
Viola tried to do the same with her fairy wings, but also couldn’t summon them.
The two had realized that they were in an even bigger predicament than before. Certain abilities of theirs were being disabled and they didn’t know how!
Jeanne and Viola tired selves could only look down at the red slime, seeing that it had almost engulfed the entire city beyond a fifty-mile radius. There was no time to think as Sacrilege Demons were ready to kill the two. They had to jump now!
So, they looked at each other with nodding heads and let go, bracing for impact as they went straight down!
The screen pans out to reveal that Angel Slayer V4 had been blown to bits in a blaze of fire!
“ENZO!!!” the two screamed, worrying for his safety!
Just then, they see a mysterious figure briskly emerging from the explosion, flying towards them at the speed of sound.

"Rodin!" Viola gleefully yelled, noticing that Enzo was holding onto his legs.
The two take a sigh of relief before Rodin catches each of them under his arms.
“Thank you! You have no idea how much we needed this!“ Viola says.
”It’s my pleasure Viola,” he graciously replied.
However, Jeanne remained suspicious of his actions.
”Rodin, while I do appreciate the rescue, you’ve never been one to get involved. What changed?“ she questioned.
“Look, I don’t normally do this shit, just think of it a one-time exception. I’m doing it because I saw what you guys are up against. It isn’t pretty,” he answers.
”Can we please find somewhere to land?! Unlike you guys, I don’t magical powers to save my ass!” Enzo complained.
“Will you please shut your loud ass mouth up?! Don’t think I forgot about-!” Rodin responds before being cutoff.
Ok, ok, I get it! Jeez, why is everyone ganging up on me today!” Enzo yelled, quieting down afterwards.
H. O. T. D: 22 Saeko Shows Up Ends
Heaven's Feel: Fears and Hopes Begins
The screen fades to black before transitioning to a toppled building on its side, panning out to reveal the ongoing chaos in the background with the Sacrilege Demons.
The were temporarily safe now thanks to Rodin. Enzo was even kissing the ground after being in the sky for so long.
“Viola, I think you’re gonna need these,” Rodin says, summoning a purple box onto his hands.
“It’s been a while since these babies were put to work, so I guess now is as good a time as ever,” he says, offering her the box.
Viola could only stare with visible concern as tears formed in her eyes.
”Rodin, I… I don’t think I can accept these. They’re…!” she stutters.
”Viola, if Cereza gave you Cheshire, then I see no reason as to why she wouldn’t let you use her guns. If you want to complete you’re training as an Umbra Witch, accepting these guns is a necessary step,” Jeanne tells her.
”Besides, those cheap props on you won’t last another second!” she joked.
Suddenly, a comedic scene ensues where all the Viola’s props on her hands and feet fall apart into pieces.
”Tsk…shitty cheap toys…” Viola sheepishly mutters under her breath.
”I… I guess you have a point Jeanne…” she reluctantly says, turning to Rodin.
She was quiet now, thinking about the consequences of her actions. Was she ready to become an Umbra Witch? The question dawned on for some time, but she realized that it was now or never. She had to stop the red entity for good.
”Thank you Rodin. I‘ll make good us of them,” she says with a small smile on her face.
She then opens the lid and begins taking each gun out one by one, equipping them on her hands and feet. It wasn’t anything dramatic, just business as usual.
”I only wish mummy was here to see it,” she thought.
Heaven's Feel: Fears and Hopes Ends
H. O. T. D: 02 Impulse Begins
The camera panned out to show Queen Styx suffering. She had fallen onto the ground again and was restrained again with double the tentacles, ensuring that there would be no escape this time.
Jeanne could only watch in horror as Queen Styx was being eaten alive by Sacrilege Demons.
Multiple thoughts ran through her head about what she could do. She could dance, place her heart back into its cavity, or-!
”My, my, how sad is it to see princess Jeanne fail again,“ a voice mocked.
Jeanne looked at the red creature with a furious expression.
The screen then cut to the face of the red creature as a distorted, female voice was emitted through the Golem and heard all throughout Manhattan.
“Poor princess Jeanne, she couldn’t save her own kind, let alone her pet. These actions are, dare I say, more worthless than even Viola. Granted, a bottom feeder such as her has no hope for a future. Nonetheless, is it so wrong to expect more from the fabled ‘Last Witch’?” the female voice giggled, sarcastically ridiculing Jeanne and Viola.
”What is this bitch’s deal?! Does she have some vendetta against us?!” Viola shouted, turning towards Jeannes.
“I could say the same! How the hell does she know about my past?! Let alone my-?!” Jeanne replied, abruptly cutoff.
”That, princess, is my secret. One for you to never find out. You’ll be long dead before that. I promise,” the female voice declared with absolute certainty, stunning the two with the threat.
“Anyhow, it's time for your pet to be put out of its misery. Sin Demons were so last fall, wouldn’t you agree?”
Suddenly, a large tentacle began emerging from the creature's body, morphing into that of a sharp blade.
“DON’T YOU DARE!!” Jeanne yelled.
However, she was ignored as the blade plunged into Queen Styx's heart, putting an end to her as she fell onto the ground, absorbed by the slime.
Jeanne exploded with a blaze of acrimony, placing her heart back in its chest!
"YOU BITCH!!" she blared, beyond furious!
Viola was stunned by the barbarity of the action, wanting revenge!

Bayonetta 3: Al Fine Begins at 0:53
She and Jeanne turned to Rodin, seeing him nod his head. They were going kill this abomination now!
So, he grabbed the two and began spinning at nauseating speeds, building a strong momentum before throwing them right at the red Golem!
A QTE then appeared as Viola and Jeanne launched a constant barrage of Wicked Weaves at the red core! They were punching so hard that they broke the QTE gauge, ending their stream of attacks with a Heel Stomp from above that smashed the Golem's core into bits!
Viola and Jeanne could then hear the woman's distorted voice cursing at them through the bits of the remaining core.
“If you think this is the last of me, think again! I’ll be back!” She curses, voice fading away soon after.
Bayonetta 3: Al Fine Ends
The screen then shows the red entity disintegrate, panning out in the sky to reveal that the slime that spread across Manhattan was evaporating.
The screen then cuts to Jeanne and Viola using their wings to lower themselves from the sky, landing onto the street. They had no doubt in their minds that the female voice was one behind everything.
Yet, with that in mind, all they could do now was look at what remained of the city. There were damaged roads, toppled buildings, and countless people missing.
They could only look at each other with concern, realizing that while the battle was won, more was to come. The sky was still blood-red and something else had remained.
The camera zooms in onto the duos faces before moving to the gaping hole where the convention center once stood. It then went all the way down, dramatically revealing a Gate to Inferno.
Things were not over, not in the slightest.

2023.06.01 08:45 Practical-Choice-961 Rec’s for Single Mattress Solution for Differently-sized Couple

Hi everyone,
So, partner and I are very differently sized: I’m around 120lb at 5’4 and he’s 6’3 and 340lb. Despite this, I’m hopeful to find a single mattress solution. Our current mattress has been a basic cheap no brand innerspring mattress that’s sagging now but still on the very firm side. I’m a side and back sleeper that gets shoulder pain on our current mattress; he kind of sleeps every which way. Budget is pretty open respective to quality of the mattress.
We both agree no memory foam, and we are very interested in latex-innerspring hybrids.
We tested some mattresses in store and liked the Purple 2 Hybrid at a MattressFirm (surprisingly supportive for him, soft enough for me on my side) but I was concerned about the crazy motion transfer as he often has to get up before I do and will wake me up even on our current traditional innerspring mattress. Also was concerned how well it would hold up long term with his weight. We also liked Kingsdown Eurotop models, but we’ll probably need a firm/eurotop combo if we go this route.
Any suggestions for models we should be considering? Or even specific materials or builds we should look for? We are also willing to travel to a SLEEPARE location to try out some of the online brands to get a feel for them in person which we’d prefer if possible.
Currently Looking at: Saatva Latex Hybrid, Saatva HD Winkbed Plus Birch/ Birch Luxe Purple 2, Purple Premium or Luxe mattresses in firm
Any feedback about these or tis would be helpful. Thank you

2023.06.01 08:26 eldardlywizardly ABYG nung sinabi ko sa nanay kong ayoko nang mag doctor’s coat sa grad pic?

Medyo mahaba pero nakikiusap po akong pagtiyagaan ninyo hahahah.
Hello all. Graduation szn na at panahon na para sa mga toga pic. Medical/Allied health ang course ko kaya inencourage kaming magdala ng white coat for our pictorial.
Ok kukwento muna ako. Siyempre excited akong magpapicture kasi matagal kong hinintay ang pagtatapos ko ng pag-aaral. Nagsabi ako na gusto ko sana kasama ko ang family ko at magsabay ng family picture sa araw ng pictorial. Kaso nung nalaman ko yung presyo, ang mahal pala nung ganun. Tapos ang daming kasama sa package na solo photos na hindi ko naman gusto. Ayoko na nung mga creative shot, formal, pa-white coat. Very self-conscious ako because of my size and I don’t like getting my photos taken. Plus, pag may ganun, it means I have to find/buy clothes which is not cheap or easy for people my size. Hindi po ako malaki lang. Malaking malaki talaga. Aminado naman ako ron. Clothes shopping in malls stresses me out a lot because nothing fits. Kaya I prefer online.
So sinabi ko, wag na. Ang gusto ko nalang ay yung normal na toga picture lang. Ok na ako ron. Yun lang masaya na ko. Next time nalang yung family picture. Hiwalay nalang.
Tapos bigla kong nalaman may nagsponsor daw ng downpayment/half nung mahal family package sabi ni mama.
Wow. Thankful naman ako. Kasi bawas yung bayad sa grad pic. Pero sa loob loob ko, nasestress na ko. Sinabi kong toga pic nalang sana, pero di ako pinakinggan.
Nakiusap ako, na kung pwede bang lahat nalang ng picture ko eh nakatoga. Tapos sige Filipiniana kasi studio naman magpoprovide (sana may kasya 😭). Pero sabi ni mama paano yung ibang shots, sayang naman, di masusulit yung bayad na mahal.
If I may add, kasabay rin to ng nalaman kong kailangan na palang mag-enroll sa review centers dahil nagkakaubusan na ng slots. So gastusan nanaman.
Nagsisimula na kong mawalan ng gana rito at di na ko masyadong nagsasalita kasi now, hiyang hiya na kong humingi ng pera. Katatapos lang ng gastos sa school. Wala pang isang linggo mula nung pumasa ako sa proficiency exams bago mag grad. Eto nanaman, gastos, review, grad pic, dadagdag pa soon pang process ng papers for boards. Ayoko na sanang bumili pa ng damit. Pero mukhang mapipilitan pa.
(/Wala ka bang damit sa closet?/Wala po masyado na pwede for pictorial sana. Malaki nga po kasi ako. Kaya wala masyadong magandang damit. Yung mga damit ko paulit-ulit kasi yun lang yung maayos tignan. Nanay ko na mismo nagsasabi “yan nanaman suot mo?” Eh eto nga lang maayos 😭)
Edi nagsimula na ang tensyon. Napagalitan ako bakit daw parang hindi raw ako “enthusiastic” (yan talaga sinabi niya) para sa grad pic. Sinabi niya, “Sa ibang bagay na gusto mo excited ka. Pero sa gusto ko parang wala lang.”
Huh 😔 sinong hindi excited magpa-grad pic? ☹️
Na-commentan na lahat. Yung buhok ko, kelan ako magpapagupit? Gusto raw niya may bangs. Yung damit ko, ano raw isusuot kong damit? Ano raw ayos ko. Gusto niya talaga may creative shot.
Tapos sinabi ko na this is specifically why I didn’t want the other photos. Toga nalang sana. Simple lang. Done grad pic, diba?
Edi nagtampo na. Bahala na raw ako. Kung ano raw gusto ko kasi hindi raw ako enthusiastic sa gusto niya.
Nabawasan yung tensyon after a day. Unti-unti narin akong gumawa ng paraan para masunod yung gusto niya. Naghanap ng mga damit na sana kasya at sana umabot ang delivery. Ipapagupit ko na yung bangs ko bukas. Lahat.
Pero biglang galit nanaman kasi namention na yung white coat sa reminders ng studio. Gusto raw nila naka coat.
Saan ako hahanap ng coat na kasya? Kailangan pa magpasadya. Less than 1 week nalang. Edi rush? Dagdag bayad nanaman. 😣
Nag-give in na ako at nagpunta sa mananahi. Medyo bara-bara yung mananahi habang nagsusukat kaya nung una palang kaya sinabi ko nang “ma’am malaki po ako. Yung braso ko po malapad. Ok po ba yung sukat?”
Um-oo naman siya. So I trusted dahil kakilala naman daw ng nanay ko. We paid. Mahal, siyempre kain tela sa laki ko.
Naexcite narin ako, kasi unang white coat ko yun ever. May burda pa ng pangalan ko.
Pagbalik ko kahapon to pick up napansin ko na na medyo masikip sa likod at sa shoulders. Nagbubunch slightly sa kili-kili. Pero sabi ko baka dahil malaki at makapal yung t-shirt na suot ko. So tinry ko ulit sa bahay, naka sando nalang, ganun parin yung fit. Di maganda tignan. Saka mukha talagang minadali pag tinignan ng maigi.
Nakakalungkot. Nakakahiya kasi di nanaman kasya kahit sinukatan na.
Binalik namin kaninang umaga yung white coat para ipaadjust sana kaso um-attitude yung mananahi na dapat sinabi raw yung gusto kasi hindi raw sila manghuhula ganyan. ☹️ sasagarin nalang daw yata nila yung seams.
Ngayon habang pauwi, sinabi kong “pag hindi parin maganda yung fit ng white coat after adjustment, di ko siya isusuot sa grad pic”
Ngayon nagalit. Masama ang loob. Ang punto ko kasi, bakit ka magpipicture na alam mong hindi maayos yung itsura mo? Na mukang suman yung likod mo? Idaan ko nalang raw sa pose. Ha? Paanong pose? Dapat daw gawan ko nalang ng paraan kasi wala namang choice.
May choice eh. In the first place kung ang pinili lang yung toga lang ok na eh. Pero pinilit pa yung iba eh.
Ngayon mainit nanaman ulo ng lahat haha.
Don’t get me wrong. I love my parents so much and I am so grateful for their love and support. Pero parang nagiging komplikado kasi yung mga bagay na sana simple lang. At napapalaki ang gastos na sana hindi naman.
Ewan ko ba. ABYG? Ang sama ko bang anak at napaka ungrateful ko ba? Dapat ba pinagbigyan ko nalang lahat ng sinabi ni mama?
/For context: dream course ng nanay ko yung natapos ko. Yun din ang isa sa major reasons kung bakit yung ang kinuha kong program sa college. Ewan ko baka may factor yun sa mga reaksyon niya./

EAA+ combines branch chain amino acids (BCAAs) with essential amino acids (EAAs), nootropics, trace electrolytes and minerals to make it a complete mass and strength builder. Upgrade from generic BCAA-only products that don't have enough aminos to synthesize new muscles.

Enhanced Labs Essential Amino Acids Plus
Upgrade your program like an Olympian: ditch the cheap BCAA only drink for EAA+. EAA+ consists of 24 highly effective ingredients resulting in the best anabolic supplement on the market. Its the perfect fuel for the muscle all day long.
There are two types of amino acids; essential amino acids and non-essential amino acids. The problem with using only a BCAA supplement is that the BCAAs are only 3 of the 8 essential amino acids. You are missing the other 5 essential amino acids! In order to capitalize on the increased muscle protein synthesis BCAAs provide, you must take the BCAAs with EAA.
That’s what really separates EAA+ from other amino acid supplements. It contains BCAAs to signal muscle protein synthesis, plus all the EAAs so muscle tissue can actually be built.

2023.06.01 08:06 Strengthwars Speculation on the Unknown Justice League Members

Speculation on the Unknown Justice League Members
Do you ever lie awake at night wondering who those missing Justice League designations are in Season 4? No? Just me? Well, anyway--
Young Justice: Phantoms told another satisfying story that reflected on and wrapped up threads connecting as far back as the first season while also doing some exciting new world-building (or galaxy-building on the cosmic side). One element of this included the expansion of the Justice League roster, which is a show staple and has happened every season. Invasion's five-year time skip added Blue Beetle (Ted Kord), Black Lightning, Green Lantern (Guy Gardner), Zatanna, and Rocket, even if Ted was dead by the time the season began. As the galactic efforts of the team expanded, Outsiders' shorter two-year time skip brought about a much bigger expansion with ten members. Even though we never got to see Fire or Magog, even by Phantoms, we did learn about their place on the League by the end of the third season. Alas, the fourth, despite giving us some info and clues, did not reveal the full list of the expanded roster by the end of its run.
Here's what we know:
  • La'gaan is granted the title of Aquaman and invited to join the Justice League in "Leviathan Wakes" on July 3rd, 2020.
  • In "Death and Rebirth", during the wedding of Conner Kent and M'gann M'orzz on September 16th, 2020, La'gaan/Aquaman is heard zeta-ing in under the designation 45.
  • Steel was designated 36 in Season 3 and represented the final member of those who joined between Invasion and Outsiders.
  • Metamorpho is seemingly folded into the Justice League during "Nevermore" at the end of Season 3 when Batman Inc. rejoins with the rest of the groups, including Metamorpho and Orphan -- who were recruited specially to Batman's effort and weren't originally members of the League or Team. We see in Season 4 that Orphan is designated B-36, after the last known Season 3 designations, meaning it's likely Metamorpho is 37 on the League front.
  • The "Foreign Affairs" tie-in comic set after Season 4 confirms that Cyborg is designated 39.
  • Series co-creator Greg Weisman has stated that the designation ordering for a batch of members that all join at the same time (as was typical for the aforementioned waves in previous seasons) is determined by those heroes' debut order. As seen in “Og Htrof Dna Reuqnoc!” during Season 4, Zatara joined the League alongside Captain Atom, Black Canary, Green Lantern (John Stewart), Captain Marvel, and Red Tornado. They were designated in that order because it is the order they became heroes, which is proven by how Zatara was one of the earliest, debuting the same year as Superman. And again, regardless, this has all been confirmed by creator comment.
  • We see Victor Stone become Cyborg in February 2019 and join the Outsiders toward the end of Season 3.
  • With the unusual exceptions of La'gaan and likely Jay Garrick, who seem to join at particular intervals, new Justice League members tend to join in collective batches, as exemplified with Zatara's wave or the other aforementioned ones. Though we do not have confirmation as to when exactly Cyborg joined the League, it is likely that he was recruited alongside another few heroes in the short gap between Seasons 3 and 4.
  • All this to say that Cyborg's placement as 39 in this new wave that goes up to 43 or 44 means that all new Justice Leaguers but one debut BETWEEN February 2019 and February 2020. We are dealing with a fresh batch of heroes that we would not have seen costumed in previous seasons... but that we may have already seen in civilian form.
  • If we assume Metamorpho is 37 for the sake of argument, as it's unconfirmed but seems likely, 38 and 40-44 are all unknown designations. But we know from Season 4 that Flash (Jay Garrick) and an unknown Green Lantern occupy at least two of them.
So... for anyone still with me, who might fill those remaining slots? I have a few thoughts:
Jay is probably 44 and joined outside the other six.
The first thing to acknowledge is which character has that mysterious 38 slot preceding Cyborg. That slot means that the first hero to join the League after Season 3, assuming they joined alongside Vic, was someone who had become a hero prior to February 2019. Obviously, Jay Garrick became a hero quite a bit earlier, in 1940 to be exact, and was a founding member of the Justice Society of America. We learn in Season 4's "Leviathan Wakes" that he has become a member of the more modern Justice League and see him on his very first mission nearly two months later in the next episode. These time discrepancies are odd, but Jay is a long-time hero and it's not unreasonable to hazard that he may have joined outside of the normal League recruitment schedule. They no doubt would have been happy to accommodate him at his own pace. This, plus the fact that his first mission wasn't until August 2020 when we know the main recruitment wave happened prior to February, leads me to suspect that Jay joined more recently compared to the mentioned episodes and that he is designated 44. It's possible that he's 38, but that would eliminate all the interesting possibilities of longer-standing heroes who may have become Leaguers by the fourth season...

Rocket Red (Dmitri Pushkin)
Dmitri is a Justice League member in the comics and we saw him don his Rocket Red armor for the first time during Season 3's "Leverage", set on November 17th, 2018 -- a few months prior to Vic's becoming Cyborg. Now, the Rocket Red Brigade in YJ is a Russian superhero organization and Dmitri especially doesn't take kindly to American espionage/intervention. He wants to rival the Justice League, not join it... at least at that time. Could he have changed his mind in the following year or so? Perhaps. I'll circle back to this for my next idea, but in the credits scene of “Beyond the Grip of the Gods!” in Season 4, we see Black Lightning and Superman discussing the forthcoming Justice League Reserves and a screen displaying potential recruits. In addition to this, Superman notes that "Russia has more Rocket Reds" as an idea for further recruitment. His use of more is interesting, as it potentially signifies that there is already a Rocket Red within their circles. However, given Dmitri's characterization from what little we saw of him and what we know the Rocket Red Brigade's nationalist goals seem to be here, it's equally possible and perhaps more likely that the "more" simply refers to the membership beyond Dmitri and his superior, Olga Ilyich, whom all the heroes would have learned about in Season 3, given that it was a Team mission reporting to the League. Perhaps a Rocket Red or two made it into the Reserves, but I'm betting the 38 designation actually belongs to a different character...

Many of you may know Cliff Steele/Robotman from the acclaimed Doom Patrol show, and he made his first true appearance in Season 4's "Emergency Dive" after an illusion of sorts in the third season. In YJ, Robotman was a founding member of the Doom Patrol in 2011 and died with the rest of his crew in 2015. In Season 3, during an episode set in 2018, Beast Boy's dream sequence seems to indicate that he still believes Robotman to be dead. But Robotman is a living human brain stuck in a metal body, and we learn in the fourth season that said robot head was recovered and that Cliff has slowly been working himself out of the depression stemming from losing his team and spending years at the bottom of a river. Whether that's the exact timeline of events is a bit in question, but we know that by Season 4, Robotman is up and running and ready to help Gar despite still facing struggles. Cliff is not typically a Justice League member in other mediums, but neither is Zatara, Rocket, or Magog. One of the best things about YJ is how it remixes and reimagines typical continuity, and in the world of Earth-16 where the League is the premiere superhero organization that it is, it makes sense that they'd properly take in Robotman. We know that he's able to utilize Black Canary's mental health services, as he is a key example she brings up in "Death and Rebirth" as to why she wants to organize a proper sanctuary for struggling heroes who need to work on themselves. Given his ties to the hero community in 2020, I find it strange that Cliff would not be featured on this screen:
The pictured Justice League Reserve candidates in “Beyond the Grip of the Gods!”
Black Lightning and Superman conveniently cover up two of the slots, but it seems far more likely that was done to avoid showing characters the creative team didn't have designs for rather than the ones they did, don't you think? So my question is, if Robotman is so connected to the superhero community as they support his recovery, why would he not be on speed dial for the next crisis via this Reserves setup? Or at least be in contention? I think a very likely answer is that Robotman cannot be a Reserve member because he is already a regular member of the Justice League, specifically under designation 38, as he debuted in 2011 and would have joined alongside Cyborg. While he's still on a journey of recovery, Robotman seems up and running enough (pun intended) by Season 4 that I don't think it's too much of a stretch to propose that he's joined the team proper. But beyond that elusive 38 slot, I do have one more guess to propose as to another member of Cyborg's wave who could have become a hero after him...

In Season 3, we are introduced to teenage interview show host Courtney Whitmore. Sometime during 2019, she acquired a Cosmic Staff and became Stargirl, as we see her as a member of the Outsiders during Season 4. For anyone familiar with Courtney's DC Universe/CW show, you'll know that Courtney is a legacy hero and that her uncle, Pat Dugan, is a critical part of that journey. Pat was a sidekick back in his younger days and, in the comics and Stargirl show, suits up in a robotic suit of armor as an adult to aid Courtney as her sidekick. Thanks to the recent Young Justice: Targets tie-in comic series showing us Green Arrow flashbacks to 2010 and the time frame of Season 1, we know that Pat Dugan and his old mentor Sylvester Pemberton exist... as Star City traffic reporters rather than heroes (at least at that time). It seems like Courtney's E-16 legacy may be more of a media one than a heroic one, but her Stargirl persona persists and so it's not impossible that her uncle may have his suit as well. While it's far from assured, Pat is a character we now know is around, and given that he'd be becoming active after Cyborg and that he and Courtney are often a package deal, I think it would be interesting if S.T.R.I.P.E. was one of the members who joined the League between Seasons 3 and 4.
If anyone out there was courageous enough to read all of that, I commend you for your patience and appreciate your shared interest. I love this world and its rich characters, history, and mystery, and given the sub's rising subscriber numbers, I know I'm not alone. So if you're mighty curious as to who else may have joined the Justice League between seasons, I would love to hear your thoughts below. Remember, most of them are likely newer heroes, so your answers are welcome to range from why a new character like Vixen might work well in the current context of the show, to why a deep-cut Season 1 cameo like Pieter Cross may have only recently become Doctor Midnight and joined the big League. You don't have to read all of the above, I'd just love to hear your thoughts!
tl;dr: In addition to Cyborg, a fourth Earth Green Lantern, Jay Garrick's Flash, and La'gaan's Aquaman, there are FOUR unknown Justice Leaguers who joined the team before or during Season 4. Based on the points above or your own theorizing, who do you think those heroes might be?

2023.06.01 07:56 GoodieGoodieGG Help me choose! Aeron or Leap V2

I’m about to purchase my first high-end office chair I’m in a position that I’m sure many of you were in: Aeron vs. Steelcase Leap V2. I know this is the Herman Miller subreddit so answers may reflect this, but I am interested in what you have to say!
For those that have both, what are the pros and cons of each? Do you find yourself sitting in one more than the other?
For those of you that chose one over the other, what made you choose it? Do you regret your choice?
I have sat in a Leap and really liked it, I was just a little disappointed with the rough plastic feel of the knobs and levers, plus the recline felt rough. Maybe the chair in the showroom was faulty?
There isn’t a Herman Miller store anywhere near me so I am unable to try out the Aeron before buying one. This does make it hard for me to determine whether a size A or B is best for me since I fall in between. I am nervous about choosing the wrong size since I have heard of people doing this and experiencing discomfort relating to the plastic frame of the seat, especially behind their thighs.
