2020.11.18 03:23 Reppingrep [FINDS] My 11/11 TB haul with branded and non-branded items!
: No incentive other than WeGoBuy's first sign up coupons for shipping.
Hi! This was my first ever Taobao haul and I may have gone a little crazy and ordered muchhhhhhh more than I should have. Most of these items are from reviews/finds on FashionReps
. Thanks for enabling me <3 Size
: I wear xs and 00 at Zara/Abercrombie and foot size 5.
~~~~~~~~On to the actual Haul! (All items from Taobao
FINDS: Prada re-edition 2005 W2C
Price : ￥299
Quality : 10/10
Accuracy : 9/10 *commented below that the tag? Had off centered label
This was a last minute purchase as the original seller I was going to buy if off said they didn't have any more in stock. But this bag looks flawless to me! CDG paper bag tote W2C
Price : ￥39.8
Quality : 9/10 There's some weird transfers but hard to see since black.
Accuracy : 10/10

/AUTH (SAME SHAPE BUT RED)
Price : ￥70
Quality : 10/10

Quality : 8/10 There's some stains? But not too worried since I will beat it up too.
Accuracy : 8/10 Y's are not touching :(
Just something to make my passport stand out more in my backpack when I travel. Not sure how long the white leather will stay "white". Nike Bucket hat W2C
Price : ￥25
Quality : 8/10 Surprisingly thick

Cute with shorts inside. Size chart is pretty helpful and they have a "longer version" as well. Material is very thick. One of my favorites. Period Undies W2C
Price : ￥34.7
In hindsight, the "waterproof" area being white may not have been such a great idea since it will get stained easily?? Also seems sold out atm. Clip on earring converter thingy? W2C
Price : ￥9.90
As someone that doesn't have their ears pierced... I may try some DIY with the Dior earrings above. Fleece leggings to try under sheer tights W2C
Price : ￥7.90
Thought I would try getting this for those cold Canadian winters when I can't give up on skirts.
Also got various unbranded cute phone cases that I will gift for Christmas. Gold pocket
(WTC in imgur)
Wegobuy really made things easy to buy, the agents let me know pretty quickly if something was out of stock. 10/10 would order again except they raised their shipping prices by 30% recently???? Shipping:
Weight of package: 8.35kg
Cost to ship: $152
And that's it! Thanks for reading my super long post!

2020.10.30 02:13 MichelMitchelll Se stuff (clothing) applied to ENTJs
Hi future CEOs of Reddit,
As an older ENTJ (32 is old right?) who’s grown my Se to the point that tests now say I’m an ESP (lol), I thought it’d be nice to share some style basics which, according to the Pareto principle, will get you 80% of the job done in any sensory environment.
Because people will scrutinize and judge your cocky demeanor always and forever, let’s not start with a handicap - which is more than likely to happen when an immature ENTJ wants to look cool like an Se Dom.
First and foremost, GET TO THE GYM
. Yeah yeah capital letters. There’s no way around it. Nice legs and torso will make any black pants and white tees look like designer clothes. As per rick owens
Working out is modern couture. No outfit is going to make you look or feel as good as having a fit body. Buy less clothing and go to the gym instead.
Don’t need to be huge, just lean ish with decent proportions and some muscle mass. BMI 23 or so, nice and athletic. Diet is 50% of the job so eat your Protein and veggies when sedentary, carbs before and during a workout. 6-12 months of 531 routine
WILL get you there.
Back to clothing. I read this today which inspired me to write it all up
ENTjs like expensive, good quality clothes, however they can find it difficult to effectively combine their wardrobe. This is especially noticeable in ENTj males. They are very attracted to bright colour combinations and may combine two or three styles together. However, their aesthetic understanding is not usually very well developed
Honestly? Been there done that 100%. Expensive designer stuff with original colors. Poorly matched. Hit or miss... definitely not as suave as intended.
What colors suit an NTJ best? INTJs know... BLACK. And white. ENTJ women know it too
(thanks for the impeccable aesthetics here dear INFP). So go get quality black pants, sweaters, jackets, suits, accessories. White is for shirts and tees. No blue shirts, no red tees, none of that stuff for now.
Colorful stuff just won’t feel as natural right from the start, so leave it to the SPs if you arent 100% sure that your outfit rocks.
I’m a sneaker head and a lover of fancy boots or oxfords, and so should you, so I’d say have fun in the shoe department. You virtually can’t go wrong with black pants, black outerwear, white tees/shirt and fancy shoes. Everybody loves clean eye catching shoes. You’ll get tons of compliments (return them back! No awkwardness. You’re in Se land now).
- Black leather jacket. Basic bomber don’t go for crazy designs here. Can be fur lined.
- Black denim jacket. Same basic design. Zara has a neat one with fur lining
- Black cable knit sweater, ‘tis the season
- black hoodies of course
- Optional: white/ivory cable knit sweater
- Uniqlo black chinos, perfectly clean slim but not too skinny cuts
- Grab dark denim raw jeans, plus beige pants in the summer, those would be my only exception to the black/white rule for now
- Strongly recommended: slightly ripped black jeans (any brand). Just a bit of a break from the clean black pants look.
- Uniqlo thermal long sleeve white tees, it’s crazy how I got so many compliments from the most basic $20 piece of cloth. But hit the gym too.
- A bunch of properly tailored white shirts, optional - subtle prints.
- Brown Chelsea boots, suede leather, for all ENTJs
- Any white sneakers, without or with a bunch of colors, for younger ENTJs
- cognac brown oxfords for businessmen
- Black car obviously.
- black shirts. Black tees are fine, but black shirts on black pants is kinda weird unless Zara is your employer. Try it out
- Colored sweaters. Can work under a black jacket
- Cardigans, V necks, any sweater (and tee shirt for that matter) that isn’t a crew neck
Don’t (at least not for now)
- colored outerwear
- Not black outerwear
- Outerwear that is sold in a color that’s different from black
Hopefully that’s clear, basics are black or white. One day some Hermès employee told my 19yo self to just get one of each basic to get started: leather, trench coat, denim jacket, blazer, suit. All black. Don’t gotta be expensive either, but I’d spend a bit of extra $$ on those (and shoes, understood?).
I obviously never listened and instead spent 10 years in hit or miss territory. If you don’t listen to me cuz you wanna do your thing with a bunch of colors anyway, it’s fine, I was the same dude.
Last precision - never talk about what designer stuff you’re wearing. People love humbleness (doh) so play it cool. If you’re often at risk of receiving alcohol on your jacket, don’t go buy a Margiela jacket and throw a tantrum on whoever spilled drinks over. That’d suck. EXAMPLES BEFORE YOU GO KICK SOME ASS LOOKING IMPECCABLE, BUT NOT UPTIGHT A bunch of very solid outfits here
. Again take it easy with the non black and white stuff. Just goes to show how far basics will get ya. literally any and all sneakers work with black pants, a white or black tee, and a basic jacket
Three Work outfits done right, again any shoe is good to go. Nice brown shoes are perfect and will pair up well with those beige summer pants:

2020.10.13 20:33 bittercrits 100K Giveaway - Architect's Fall Vibe
Hello All, I am an Architect by profession. The moodboard is inspired from what I would have worn if I wasn’t working from home.
I love fall weather. The cosy color of nature foreshadowing the brisk chilly winter air. The styling is very basic as I am quite a basic b*tch.
- Item - [Chanel Trendy CC in Green Chevron]
- Seller - TS Aaron (I am unsure about the factory)
- 788 (Price) +200 (Cost of shipping) = 988 RMB My Photos Mini Review
Seller: Aaron was very responsive. The only problem I faced was while sending money to him. In India, Paypal F&F option isn’t available. As the service is blocked in India, I assumed the normal sending would do. Long story short, I had to send to a friend in Indonesia so she would send it through F&F to Aaron. (Also Transferwise was quite confusing to use as it was my first time using and I was very skeptical) 8.5/10
Ordered: 9th June 2020
Received: 18th June 2020 (Got delayed because of custom payment)
The bag: What I like
: The Bag looks very luxurious, heavy and goes well with almost anything. I love the texture of the lambskin and the feel of it on hand. The stitching is done very well.
Quality: 9/10 What I don’t like
: The accuracy is quite off. You can take one look and can tell it’s a rep. The Chevron stitching near the logo do not touch the base of the stitching line like it should.
Used in the Moodboard:

2020.10.13 18:09 orenishii82 100K Giveaway: It's #HuntingSeason & She's Hungry
You can check out the moodboard here
This board is for my fellow goal-getters, the women who wake up every morning determined to conquer the day. They stalk their goals, are unstoppable, and never say die. My muse, let's call her Kelsei.
Kelsei is a successful, creative entrepreneur with the Midas touch. She makes her own luck, and the world knows it. Whether she's walking into a room to present a proposal or using the dance floor as her runway, she turns heads. Her confidence is contagious.
In honor of the Fall, Kelsei's accented her classic neutral wardrobe with a pop of power color - classic red. She's the kind of girl's who's always pulled together, so from head to toe, all the elements of her color story work in unison. Here's what the huntress is wearing
Givenchy Antigona, Black Sugared (Vegan) 'Leather' Seller: Purchased from seller on DHGate Factory: Unknown Price: ~$87 w/shipping included
Ahhhh, this bag. I went for this DHG version because I'm vegan, and this was the only faux leather that was anywhere close to the auth that I could find. Still grappling with the whole 'real skin lux bag conundrum' that I find myself in... On to the deets
: The bag has a nice heft to it. I've held the auth, and this bag is suprisingly similar in weight. The shape isn't perfect, but it's close enough for me to feel comfortable carrying it. The drop on the handles is pretty close, and some of the finer details are there: shape of the shoulder strap stops, branding embossed on the hardware, accurate typography for the logo
... My biggest pet peeves
are that the nameplate on the front of the back is sewn on too low, and the interior lining is the wrong color. The nameplate should sit flush with the top of the bag; mine is about a 1/3in lower... The interior of the bag should be a rich black; instead it's a cream in a fabric similar to dropcloth. Still on the fence about painting it; we shall see. The bottom line
: If you're in the market for a pretty good non-leather
rep and can deal with the details that aren't perfect, go for it. If I can ever get over my misgivings, I'll definitely go for a TS version.
Find anything you loved here? Please tell me in the comments!

2020.09.22 06:38 valeriavlaeria Sizing?
So I want to get a pair of 1460 or 1461 (not sure yet) for my boyfriends birthday and I’m ordering them online. He wears size 42 EU-9US MEN in Adidas and Zara, H&M, Pull and Bear, Mango like-brands. My question is if should I get him the size 41 or the size 42, since I’ve read you’re supposed to go a size down.
I have two pairs: The Monkey boot (size 39-8US women) and the Chelsea boots (size 40-and they fit a bit loose). But in other stores like Converse I am a 41 and I’m so confused with the sizing rn.
Can anyone help me decide if I should get him the 41 or the 42 based on his sizing?

2020.09.11 17:09 mypileaisdying Rant - I'm fed up with fashion and "expressing myself"
First time poster in this awesome sub :)
Let me start off by saying that I’m speaking from an incredibly privileged point of view, and at the end of the day this post is nothing more than first world problems at their peak → the luxury of having the time and means to care about fashion and the clothes I choose to wear. I’m very well aware that my position in life is, in comparison to the vast majority, one of extreme privilege and fortune. I’m a white, young, conventionally attractive, thin, middle-class cis woman living in a country with one of the highest, if not the highest, living-standards in the world.
If you don’t like to read on about my complaints, I totally understand. This is mostly a babbling rant anyway with a very negative view, so I apologise if it makes anyone upset.
But now let's get to it.
I’m so fed up with fashion. I’m struck with decision-fatigue, insecurity and frustration. I know that I really don’t have to care about it, that I’m free to yell “fuck it” and only wear onesies and ugg-boots for the rest of my life (no shade). However, I also live in a country/city/social environment where caring a great deal about your clothes and spending lots of money on it, even as a student like me, is the norm. At the same time, I also love fashion. On others. I always notice what people wear and absolutely love it when people have an original style, look effortlessly cool, well put-together, or over-the-top. I don’t consider myself a snob when judging others clothes by any means, that is not what it is about, I simply like looking at clothes and the people wearing them.
After quarantine since March I’m back at university and I feel an insane amount of pressure to look good, “chic” and “in” every. single. day. I need the right jewelry, the right clothes, the right shoes - even the right backpack to “play the part”. The last couple of weeks has been extremely stressful as I’ve tried to accumulate new clothes that I like for the semester, with very little success so far.
I also feel like clothes are way too powerful when it comes to expressing who we are and building our identity - especially for women. For some, this is an advantage and cornerstone in their love of fashion. For others like me, it leads to identity-crisis, over thinking and decision-fatigue. I don’t know who I am, and I certainly don’t know how to express it through clothes, or if I even want to. Another redditor made an excellent post here about being “marked” as a woman through clothes and I felt that in my soul. I feel uncomfortable with being looked at and having to navigate what to wear and how based on my gender, and the messages implied in my clothes (in the eyes of especially men).
As a woman, I’m also completely exhausted by how quickly fashion changes and the sheer amount of options. I’m not the type who wears things that are only trendy for a short while, yet the things I wore last autumn already look a bit dated in some ways, or have been worn out due to poor quality. I simply can’t with having to buy new stuff all the time, it feels greedy, time-consuming and wasteful. Wandering around aimlessly in fluorescent light in H&M or Zara, wanting to crawl out of my skin in the dressing room as I try on yet another, ill-fitting thing as most female clothes are poorly made without regard for different body types. Even I with a very ““standard”” body struggle with odd fits all the time, I can only imagine how others feel. At the same time, my boyfriend lives happily in the same nice pants, shirts and denims season after season. I know people will say that an answer to this question is “timeless classics”, yet the cut of jeans and pants etc. changes over the years too, and no one wears striped parisian boatneck tops where I live, so yeah, the “timeless classics” aren’t that timeless after all IMO. Also, these items are only timeless from a very specific, eurocentric point of view, so while I can only appreciate the help and ease it brings others to rely on these basics, it’s not the solution for everyone.
I’ve almost run out of words now… I feel like I’m chasing intangible ideals and hating myself in the process. At the back of my mind lurks guilt and horror of the outright disastrous environmental and humanitarian problems with the fashion industry, problems I actively contribute to with every desperate purchase.
Do any of you recognize this ambivalent relationship with fashion and your clothes? Or like me feel like it takes up way too much of your mental space or feel pressured into giving way too many fs about the clothes on your back? How do you deal with this pressure of what to wear or comments on your appearance?
Or, if you disagree or come from a totally different viewpoint please let me hear your thoughts as well, I'm very interested!
TL;DR: I feel pressured into caring and putting more effort into my clothes than I’m capable of. I’m tired of being “evaluated” through my clothes, especially as a woman, and having to adjust to constantly changing trends. For me, it leads to frustration, decision-fatigue, insecurity and a worse body-image.
EDIT: Thank you all for your comments! I'm definetly learning and reevaluating a lot of things based on your answers, so thank you again! As some of you have commented, I'm not american and I don't go to college, I'm at university which is different here. I'm almost 24 so not exactly a kid anymore (though adult is up for debate). I've been to the US and there is definetly a much more leisurely approach to fashion than where I live, so your experience might differ a lot from mine! Just wanted to clear that up :)

2020.09.04 09:26 liv832 Subtle Flexes/Streetwear for Autumn/Winter - Reviews of Everything I've bought from DHGate, AE and TB Recently!
Hey gals, I've been on this subreddit for a while but this is my first time posting! I just wanted to share what I've bought from Taobao/AliExpress/DHGate over the last few months.
These are fairly subtle flexes as I graduated from uni last year so people I know would totally call me out if I started wearing head-to-toe Chanel all of a sudden. I'm around 5'7 and usually wear a UK 10, 34C, although I am gifted with a thicc butt so sometimes wear size 12 bottoms.
I buy from AliExpress and DHGate using their mobile apps and all of the TB stuff was bought in a big haul via Wegobuy. Considering covid-related delays, I was so surprised than nothing took more than 2-3 weeks to arrive!
Also please excuse the creases in the pics I can only apologise for being too lazy to iron! DHGate
AliExpress (all free AliExpress Standard Shipping, 3 weeks) Zara Dress
- Gucci card holder [W2C] [My pics] [Auth]
- Price: £26 (free shipping, ePacket)
- Quality: 8/10 - I haven't felt the auth, but this is made of soft leather, it feels lovely and puffy. Some of the stitching around the edges is a little bit rough to touch, however this isn't really noticeable unless you're holding it.
- Accuracy: 7/10 - Same number of chevrons, and GG placement is correct, however the actual 'G's look a bit thicker and rounder than on the auth. Dust bag is nothing like auth, but no one's going to see that anyway lol
- Satisfaction: 10/10 - The leather feels and smells great! I was so impressed considering the low price, love it!
- M - Tangada Official Store [WTC
] [My pics
] [Auth - link dead]
Cute Floral Dress
- Price: £12
- Quality: 9/10 - Material is a bit thin but I think the auth was the same.
- Accuracy: 10/10 - This dress is exactly the same as the one I tried on in Zara, it fits perfectly and is a nice length too. It has a tie around the waist to give you a bit more of a shape.
- Satisfaction: 10/10 - I fell absolutely in love with this dress last Autumn when I tried it on in store, but it totally sold out everywhere when I went back to buy it and I was gutted. When I discovered image searching on AliExpress I thought it was worth a try - and there she was! I was literally soooo happy to see it hahaha I think it'll look so cute with some tights and boots in the winter!
- L - Bazaleas Dreamy Store [WTC
] [My pics
- Price: £13
- Quality: 6/10 - the fabric is really thin and feels pretty cheap, same with the zip. I'm not sure how many wears I'll get out of it before I need to sew something up (however I've worn 2 or 3 times and it's still going strong). I don't think it looks that cheap though just like H&M level.
- Accuracy: N/A (I have no idea if this is a rep of something?)
- Satisfaction: 7/10 - looks cute, I always get compliments in this! Just can't bend over or sit comfortably as it's so tight lol
(maybe Reformation?) - L - Bazaleas Dreamy Store [WTC
] [My pics
- Price: £10
- Quality: 7/10 - again, cheap fabric and a bit thin but still looks cute.
- Accuracy: 7/10 - haven't seen the auth irl but I know the fabric is different. No branding on this top, but style and fit is similar.
- Satisfaction: 8/10 - really cute top for summer, fits nicely! Runs super small, tight on my chest so if you're blessed with bigger boobs it might be a squeeze.
I used Wegobuy to purchase the following items in one haul. The parcel was 2,544g total which ended up costing 292 CNY (approx £32) to ship to the UK. Ordered 4th Aug, shipped via GD-EUB on 7th Aug and arrived 13th August (so fast!).
Service/Communication: 9/10 [PSPs I received
] -super impressed with the service, my agent added pictures and shipped everything promptly. I didn't have to message about anything, so can't really comment on their communication, but they were really good at emailing me each time an item arrived at the warehouse. I requested all of the extra packaging to be removed to reduce the weight and avoid being flagged by customs, I had no issues and this gave me a bit of peace of mind. Wegobuy is a bit complicated at first (-1), but you get used to it eventually (with the help of repladies guides). Fiorucci T-Shirt
- M [WTC
] [My pics]
- Price: 59 CNY (£6.50)
- Quality: 9/10 - This doesn't feel too thin or anything, I've worn and washed a couple of times and the print hasn't faded at all.
- Accuracy: 5/10 - I'm honestly not sure if this is a fantasy piece as I can only find the auth version as a crop T-shirt, all the other full length tees I can find have 'Fiorucci' in a different font, so I've lowered the accuracy for this reason. Also no branded label inside.
- Satisfaction: 9/10 - I kept seeing these T-shirts on instagram and tbh I'm not about to spend £80 on a T-shirt, so I'm super happy with this. It has like a lose-fitting, chill vibe which I love, it looks cool tucked into some high waisted mom jeans. I don't think it's very accurate, however the brand is not that popular where I live so I'm not going to let that stop me wearing it!
- M [WTC
] [My pics
- Price: 80 CNY (£8.70)
- Quality: 10/10
- Accuracy: 10/10 - Grey market, can't see any differences
- Satisfaction: 10/10 - I was about to buy the auth when I saw this blazer on a few hauls so I thought why not! This size fits me perfectly - it looks effortlessly stylish. I love that the sleeves are pulled up, I think it's so flattering.
- L [WTC
] [My pics
- Price: 105 CNY (£12 - I had to double check that I read that right lol)
- Quality: 9/10 - Really thick, heavy material, feels good quality and cosy.
- Accuracy: 9/10 - Haven't seen the auth, but it looks pretty good from pics online. The stripe colours are accurate and stitched nicely. The branding on the chest and hood look correct to me.
- Satisfaction: 10/10 I think this is so cool. I got this super oversized so I can wear it to/from the gym in the Winter and around the house - it comes down below my bum. It's made of nice thick material, it's pretty heavy (961g which is almost 1/3 of the total parcel weight) so bare that in mind if you're doing a big haul!
- L [WTC
] [My pics
Gymshark Sports Bra
- Price: 79 CNY (£8.60)
- Quality: 7/10 - I have a few Gymshark leggings but not these exact ones - they are not as soft or thick as my auths - this also means that they're not squat proof so I'd keep these as cardio/upper body day leggings!
- Accuracy: 7/10 - The fabric is letting these leggings down here, otherwise the branding is pretty accurate.
- Satisfaction: 8/10 - These look pretty good, I love the super high waist and the detailing under the bum is flattering. Could've potentially sized down to a medium but the large is okay, just slightly loose on the back of the waist. I will note that these are quite long, they bunch up ever so slightly by my knees, so if you're shorter you may have to roll up the cuffs.
- L [WTC
] [My pics
Acne Studios Beanie
- Price: 69 CNY (£7.50)
- Quality: 7/10 - The material is quite cheap and the size/shape is off, the padding inside also moves around quite a lot so not ideal for running.
- Accuracy: 6/10 - The size and shape are pretty far off the auth I used to have - this starts pretty far up my chest and is way longer than usual so it fits almost like a crop top instead of a sports bra. Maybe this would fit better on someone with bigger boobs. The colours on the logo are pretty close to auth and the label is spot on.
- Satisfaction: 5/10 - I'll probably only wear this when my other sports bras are in the wash. I should've definitely sized down to a medium, maybe this would correct the weird length of the front.
] [My pics
- Price: 69 CNY (£7.50)
- Quality: 9/10 - The wool feels thick and soft, I LOVE the colour.
- Accuracy: 6/10 - Feels pretty like the auth I've seen, the label is the right size and position. It came with an Acne carrier bag too. My main issue is that the cream auths have white lines on the patch, not black - I have seen a couple pics of hats with the black lines but I'm not sure if these are auths.
- Satisfaction: 7/10 - I really don't know how I feel about this hat. I think it's a pretty good rep, but it is just so big and thick that it makes my head look tiny (it's possible that I just have a smaller than average head?). Like I really look like a child wearing their dad's hat, you know? Considering trying to shrink it in the wash but I don't know if that will help...
] [My pics
Calvin Klein Thongs
- Price: 165 CNY (£18)
- Quality: 7/10 - Fabric feels a little bit cheap and thin.
- Accuracy: 6/10 - Definitely not 100% cashmere, doesn't have the Burberry feel. I think that the pattern is slightly fuzzy as the lines aren't as well defined. The label is not sewn on properly which is a pretty big give away. The fringe looks pretty good.
- Satisfaction: 8/10 - I'm happy with this. I wasn't expecting this to be 1:1 for £18; it's definitely not cashmere and it's not super accurate, but it's cute and it will keep me warm in Autumn/Winter. Plus, I doubt anyone will be touching my scarf. There are definitely more accurate, higher quality reps out there if you're willing to spend a little more, I might see how many outfits I wear this with over Winter and decide whether to spend more on a better rep for next year.

- Price: 36 CNY (£3.93)

2020.07.30 00:13 tjaylea Does anyone remember a TV channel called ‘Beneath the Static’? (Part 6)
1 2 3 4 5 7 8 (FINAL)
Let me begin by following up on the aftermath of The Day Of Separation.
Everything happened extremely quickly; my Mom went out in a frenzy to search for Tristan, she didn’t even try to register what we said beyond “he’d been taken” and spared no time or expense in getting the wheels moving. The sheriff’s department, our county SAR and a public appeal on state-wide television all yielded absolutely nothing. But you knew that, as did we. If anything, it made it all the harder for us to sit by the sidelines and watch my Mom, who had already lost the only man she loved at a young age, now struggle to deal with the reality of losing her only son. She took sabbaticals from work, spent most of her time researching, calling anyone, putting grounded ideas on a drawing board until the grounded gave way to the fanciful, things beyond what actually happened. She steadily lost her grip with reality until the 3rd anniversary of his disappearance when she passed from a heart attack, Doctors called it broken heart syndrome. I think looking back, she found it too tough to deal with not seeing her boy reach his 21st, even if she had me.
During those years, I tried everything to help her and push the search forward, only ever speaking of what happened in muted tones and furtive conversations late at night with far too much wine in either of our systems. Mom never said she believed me, but she didn’t discount the ideas either. Instead, she sat there every time, wide eyed and patient, slurring her words of revenge on whoever stole her boy away from her. “If I ever catch the person or persons who took Tristan away from me… from us… I will make sure they never rest a day in their lives again. My sweet boy deserved better…” She’d slosh the wine across our couch as she wept, I’d put her to bed and cry myself to sleep, before pushing all the emotions down and returning to the role of the responsible Muldoon.
In the weeks and months after he first “went missing”, the gang went through changes of their own. Preston, perhaps feeling an obligation to stay and help because of his own brother, stayed close by for the first year and made sure we always had something to eat in the highly likely event we were too exhausted to cook. His boyfriend Zachary would always be on hand to help too, full of zest and the kind of dry wit you can’t teach a person. I adored the both of them. Eventually, Zachary got a job offer he couldn’t turn down across the country and asked Preston to join him, which he did. I tearfully watched them go at the airport the following fall and we promised to stay in touch, we didn’t.
Warren went on something of a rampage to begin with, picking fights with anyone and everyone over the smallest issues. He escalated to sticking his nose into disputes that didn’t need him, trying to get any reason for someone to hit him first so he could go to town on them. He said all he saw was Mathias’ and JJ’s faces when he swung, that it didn’t matter how many times he struck them, the rage didn’t go away. This would one day lead to a grievous bodily harm charge in the UK when he got involved in a dispute between a man and his girlfriend. The man slapped his partner so hard it drew blood, Warren clocked him with a clean left and another, then another and so on until the guy was barely moving on the floor, his girlfriend screaming to stop. He was sentenced to 4 and a half years, but was released after 2. When we talked, he seemed oddly at peace, though I wouldn’t truly see the change until he came over.
Millie was the outlier, I know very little about what she got up to. 6 weeks after the day of separation and a few frayed phone-calls, she turned 18 and said she was going to New York to get her bachelor’s degree, to continue her goal and become a mortician. She’d already had her acceptance letter, but was hoping to see how the summer with Tristan went and give a long distance relationship a shot, though she openly admitted they barely got beyond discussing feelings. She came over the day of her move, car packed up with all her things and asked to go into Tristan’s room one last time. Naturally, I obliged and let her in, his room preserved the exact same way we left it; video games stacked on his desk with a laptop perched on a small mini unit, a slew of sticky notes for advice on how to make the blog better and market it efficiently. He truly believed we would be famous one day. Millie sat on the edge of his bed, a sweater of his draped over the gaming chair that she picked up and held in her hands. Even though Tristan was my twin, I knew she was hurting in a way I could never understand. She wept into it, the familiar smell ripping open the wound and letting all the pain out. I told her to keep the sweater and to call once in a while. She promised to call every year on our birthday, but her waving from her Sedan was the last I’d ever see of her.
Not long after the first entry went up, I received an email from Mathias that sent shivers down my spine, especially as I thought I was the only one who’d stayed in the town; To: Lying bitch From: Your one and only. Subject: I guess it’s almost time “Fay, I had hoped you’d resurface one day. Folks around town said they’ve not seen you in years! I always kept my distance, mind you. But I knew you were getting on okay and that I’d eventually get my chance to swoop in and comfort you. Only… that never happened. You refused all visitors, drank yourself into oblivion and sold your “tortured art” to make ends meet. You took what could’ve been a beautiful life between us and you wasted it. We’re nearly 30 now, Fay. Nobody is going to want a washed up spinster who can’t even have kids. They say your eggs are largely gone by this point… doesn’t that bother you? Doesn’t it concern you that the ONLY man you’ve ever pined for in your life is your DEAD BROTHER? Women are meant to be more than this… I at least learned that much from Callista. I get that you’ve never much cared for physical interaction, but I think I could change your mind if you’d just look past my indiscretions and let me in. Besides, that was what was promised to me all those years ago and I fully intend to collect what I’m owed one way or another. Maybe it doesn’t matter if you don’t oblige, maybe it’ll never happen in your lifetime. But some things transcend the world we live in and maybe this is just one of those times, Fay. The sages are coming to visit, the moment the borders are open again I KNOW they will. That’s fine, I welcome it. WE welcome it. The job was never done. You didn’t tell JJ or Ernesto what happened at Mantis Reach and I sure as hell wasn’t about to, not without the whole “gang” there to admit their guilt. Luckily, I know you well enough. All of you will want to end this and I couldn’t agree more. So, here’s the footage, do your review and when it’s over… come find me. You know where we’ll be. I love you. You make my skin bubble and feel hot to the touch in a world where everything is pins and needles. Mathias.”
I don’t need to tell you why it makes me more uncomfortable than anything else in so many years. But the timing could not be ignored. Attached was a .mov file I had never thought would still be intact, but with Mathias being the technical expert he is, I wasn’t the least bit surprised. I saved the email and began making contact with the group. First with Preston, then Warren and finally Millie, resolving we’d meet back here where it all began when the time was right.
They flew in on Friday and the first thing we did when we got to the basement was play the file Mathias sent; “The Fall Of Mantis Reach.Mov” The first thing that struck me about the group as we traversed back to my home was that age-old adage; The more things change, the more they stay the same.
I don’t know if the alcohol-filled nights and lack of change in my routine had not aged me much, but save for a few inches in height growth and a pixie haircut to my still-dyed red hair, I hadn’t changed all that much. Sure, I had a few more stylistic changes to my wardrobe and a scaffold piercing, but that was about it. “You literally look like you’ve had a minor wardrobe change, and that’s it. How the hell is that possible after 10 years?!” Preston exclaimed with tears in his eyes. He was taller, slightly leaner and with a bit more muscle to his frame, but happily still a larger man. He wore custom sweaters he’d print under his own clothing line “P & Z Streetwear”. This one was a demonic Gengar devouring Ash Ketchum, mini Haunters ladened across the sleeves.
“I guess I just got lucky. Meanwhile, you look fresh to death!” I replied, beaming at him as he chuckled and combed his afro.
“Well, I still think I’m pretty sensitive, but Zachary definitely imbued me with confidence! He sends his apologies, he couldn’t be with us, he wanted to come but… Sages only, right?” He gave a weak grin and patted me on the shoulder before heading downstairs, laughing as I repeated my brother’s cheesy line; “mmm… you may pass!”
Warren, to his credit, didn’t look as old as I’d imagined he’d be post-prison. His mohawk now a slicked back undercut and a thick black beard, sporting a business casual attire and a black metal band tee underneath that he flashed us with a quick grin.
“Didn’t want you thinking I’d gone all corporate.” He smiled, pulling me in for a one-armed hug, his more defined frame shocking me at first as he whispered, “I’m sorry it’s been so long, Fay. We’ll figure this out, no matter what. I fuckin’ promise you.” Before stroking my hair for a moment and heading downstairs.
Lastly, there was Millie. Even more beautiful than I remembered, she sported an all black attire and was clad in a Neo-goth outfit from the multi-clasped platform boots up to her choker that ended in the same lucky cat’s paw. Her face filled with piercings from the septum to her stretched ears, which prompted me to tap my own as she flashed a small smile. Before we even said anything, she hugged me tight, an unexpected bit of affection from someone we’d always known to be incredibly distant.
“I wish I’d been in touch. But the longer it went and the closer I got to that day, I just… I…” her voice breaking, the shame bubbling over. I soothed her and pulled away, smiling.
“What matters is you’re here now and come rain or shine, we’re gonna finish this, right?” I beamed at her and she nodded affirmatively, clutching at her choker.
“10 years is long enough, let’s do this.”
The basement was much like Tristan’s room; frozen in time. We’d decided early on to not change anything, in case we ever elected to go back and finish things. Though, I imagine most of us were too broken and terrified to ever do so back then. The same amount of chairs positioned themselves across the room and we could see small bloodstains where Mathias had once sat, crumbs in Prestons area and a distinct groove from how Warren fidgeted in his. Without saying anything, we moved our seats around and left Tristans directly in the middle where it belonged, turning Mathias’ to face the wall. It may sound silly, but it was symbolic. He was gone to us.
As we set up the Apple TV to cast the file to, we began catching up on what we’d lost.
Fay: So, what’s the biggest changes for you guys? I mean, a decade is a hell of a long time… though the last few months definitely felt like a lifetime in of itself.
Preston: I hear ya. We were lucky to operate our business from home, but not everyone was so fortunate. I guess the biggest thing for me is Zack & I’s wedding, we’re aiming for 2021 and of course we’d like you all there.
Fay: That’s… that’s wonderful! Of course we will be, I bet you’ve got a hell of a caterer, right?
Warren: Well, mine’ll kinda shock you guys… but I have a little boy.
He was right; it did. Warren had never shown much interest in anyone and didn’t seem the type to let anyone close, but the way he smiled and the love in his eyes in that moment suggested otherwise.
Millie: No shit… how old? What’s his name? Is he anywhere near as loud as you?
Warren laughed, heartily in fact. The insecurity he had as a teenager clearly long gone. He pulled out his phone and showed us a smiling boy, gap toothed and holding up a drawing of his family, including Warren and his partner.
Warren: He’s 3 and his name… is Frankie. After my little brother. Damn talkative and I gotta watch what I say around him now, or Zara will have my head. But, I love him, love my family. They saved me.
He looks so fulfilled, I couldn’t help but feel overjoyed.
Millie: Well, in my case, I became the mortician I’d always said I’d be. Got *really* good at it, in fact. I teach other students while I foster animals in my spare time. I know, I know. Lucky cat’s paw and dead things are still fun, but there’s something… wonderful about helping them find love again, y’know? It’s… part of why I wanted to come back here. To put this to rest, both what happened and who we were back then.
There was a murmuring of agreement before the video flashed up and a preview of the file greeted us. It was a shot of the whole group standing in front of a large wooded building, me and Tristan pulling the fusion dance from DragonBall Z, Warren fake punching Preston as he holds up his hands, Millie smiling while looking over at Tristan and Mathias staring at the kid near the centre of the photo, squatting down with his hands clasped, wiry brown hair protruding from beneath a red trucker hat;
Dallas “Livewire” Mendoza.
This was the night it happened.
00:01 - The camera turns on as the group is seen hiking up the trail and joking to themselves. The camera zooms in and out dramatically on Warren as he makes huge strides up the trail as a younger me laughs from behind the camera.
“Ohh look at our Super Saiyan as he leads the way to our glorious hideout!” I declared, putting on my most announcer-like voice. Warren grinned and pulled Preston in for a headlock, who immediately tapped as Millie laughed.
“You guys are such dorks, what are we discussing in the hideout today?” Millie called out as the camera pans over to her, brushing her hair out of her face. Livewire could be seen at the top of the hill, fumbling with the keys to get in the main door.
“Matters of the utmost importance, my good lady.” Livewire replied in his most regal voice, much to our delight. The brass key turned in the lock with a deft clunk and the steel door creaked open as our younger selves sauntered inside, giddy that we’d reached a place where we could be ourselves.
Preston: Man, it’s kinda crazy to think that this was 15 years ago, and it still looks fresh even now. Technology is insane. Warren: You’re telling me, was I always that fuckin’ small?Millie & Fay: Always. Fay: And loud, don’t forget loud.
Warren: Alright, alright. You got me there, but man… doesn’t the old place give you the willies?Preston: No… but seeing LiveWire does.
00:05 - We watched as the camera followed the group inside. The structure was imposing, warped and downright bizarre. Situated over three floors, the building had been left to the annuls of time after Mantis Reach was declared an unsafe commodity by the local councils back in the mid-80s. Restoration and housing was a big part of the governmental promise and I suppose they felt the need to foreclose any unsightliness or ugliness that the town perceived to have. So, much like lancing a boil, Mantis Reach was cut off from the world and hidden away so the tourists didn’t see it.
Now, one of the last derelict buildings stood there, a monolithic skeleton of mortar, cast iron and steel. The inside re-arranged and suited to our comfort, but still very much a reminder of the age old rule the town had; if it’s unsightly, store it away. We felt a kinship with the place and when the world turned its back on us; we sank away into the guts of this beast.
There was a cut on the feed and it skipped ahead some time later when we were all sat around what we called “The Green Room”, several old velvet couches and some make-up tables lined the dusty room, the wood-rotted floorboards threatening to give way at any moment. Mathias sat in an old wicker chair, rocking back and forth, pretending he was a prospector and fake-spitting at the end of every sentence, the group delighting in the spectacle.
“Y’know, I heard a legend about this place…” Livewire spoke up, sat across both armrests of an oxblood recliner. “Supposedly, this was all shut down due to an issue with the manager. Dude went crazy and broke protocol, shot his entire staff before turning the gun on himself. They said the building was totally unusable after that, that it was straight up haunted.” He snorted, back flipping off the chair and calling out in his most melodic voice “bullshit”.
“I mean, there’s one way we could find out. None of us have ever stayed the night here.” Mathias remarked, rocking back gently and waxing poetically. "Legend has it that if a soul spends a hallowed eve here, they'll never be the same. But you..." He points a shaky finger at Livewire for dramatic effect. "You have that live spark that could manage it!"
The group chuckles as Livewire scratches the back of his head, uncertain.
"I dunno guys, I get distracted easily and this place isn't exactly "safe" y'know? How do we know it'll be okay?"
We chanted his name, clapping and stomping as he began nodding and moving to the beat, psyching himself up.
"C'mon Dallas, you're the fearless one! You can do ANYTHING!" Preston said, genuine admiration in his voice.
"Hell yeah, I bet you could climb the ladder at the top of the building and hang your shoes over the powerlines!" Warren cried, pumping his fist in the air. "THAT'S top tier shit right there.
Younger me turned to Tristan as they're discussing the feat, a tinge of nervousness in my voice.
"Do you think that's safe? I mean, obviously it's NOT, but you know what I mean."
"Dude, the power to this building has been dead for a long time, that's why we have that big ass generator Mathias got us. The power lines definitely don't run anymore. You can do it man!"
The camera cuts to Millie, leaning against the wall and shaking her head, she looks uncomfortable but doesn't protest.
"Hm... Well, fuck it! Been a while since we did anything crazy and maybe this'd get me worked up to stay the night!" he rolled forward and jumped up, hair flopping as we clapped. "Call it marking my territory!"
Millie: I hated everything about this, still do.
Preston: Why didn't you say anything at the time? We'd have listened.
Millie: C'mon, group mentality combined with his infectious personality and daredevil mentality? I'd have just been bringing everyone down.
Warren: I get that, you didn't feel comfortable. But it sounds like you thought you didn't fit in with us.
Millie: Because at that point, I didn't. A misfit amongst the misfits. A fuckup beyond fuckups. It's not like I was proud of it, but...
Fay: I get it, you didn't wanna make waves or let your guard down too much, even at this point. I'm sorry.
She shrugged and didn't take her eyes off the screen.
Millie: Yeah, me too. Believe me.
00:30 - The camera is panned upwards towards the second floor, a makeshift bedroom we'd used for naps that housed little more than a faded mattress and a mirrored closet we kept snacks in. By the upper landing, there was a small metallic ladder leading some 15ft up onto the roof where the power-lines hung overhead. The rest of the group stood outside as Fay got an establishing shot before hurriedly running outside to join them.
The sky was clear, but the air was thick and the summer heat was bearing down on us. Some clouds lurking in the distance, far away from the cliff and bearing no real threat. At the time, the worst we thought may happen is sheer heat exhaustion.
But as Livewire climbed up and hooked his leg underneath one of the last steps as a safety measure while he threw his shoes over the line, the following moments would betray that.
We knew Livewire was easily swayed by others and that his daredevil attitude came as a habit of wanting to impress even when he didn't need to, we'd done it many times before without major incident. But he often took things too far of his own accord, emboldened by the excitement and cheers.
In this case, when he successfully got his shoes over the power-lines and we erupted with cheers, he decided to go a step further.
He pulled on the wires to prove they weren't active.
There was a spark, his body tensed up and smoke erupted from his body and for whatever reason, maybe even shock, I kept my camera unflinchingly on him as he sizzled and gurgled while our younger selves screamed.
After a few seconds, his body fell limp and we watched in horror as the once steadfast leg locked into the bar slipped out and he plummeted to the floor below, the sickening thud sending shockwaves through us and making us rush to him as the camera blurs and cuts out.
Millie: Even now, that's horrifying to look back on, the sound of his shock and even the smell of his body...
Warren: Makes me wanna dry heave, but not as much as what we did after seeing him like that.
Preston: Yeah, I'm not sure I wanna see it again.
Fay: I know, but we're going to.
Millie: We need to.
Preston: Yeah, we have to...
00:45 - The camera cuts to feet dashing through the trail as frantic voices call out to one another. Thunder and lightning can be heard rolling in as they get further and further away.
“Fuck… FUCK! WHY DID WE LEAVE HIM?!” Warren was bent over, dry heaving and punching his head.
“Because he was fucking DEAD, Warren. We’ve got to focus on what we do now. How we cover this up.” Mathias looked back at the house and Fay zoomed in on him through shaky hands. He looked resolved, distant.
“Cov- Cover it up? We have to fucking TELL someone!” Millie was shaking, pulling at the ends of her sleeves nervously, looking around at the group as they looked away, shamefully. “… Right?”
There was a pause, Warren speaking first.
“I already fucked up once, it cost me everything. I can’t fuck up again, guys. I can't do that to my mom... I'm all she has.” He clenched his fists and looked down, rain falling and causing his mohawk to flatten. “Do whatever you have to, I’m out.”
He walked off, Preston a few feet behind him, tears in his eyes and shaking his head.“I know we did wrong, but I have a good future… I can’t let this get in the way. If he's gone, he's gone.” He sighed. “I hate myself for saying that, but what else can we do?”
Millie stood there, indignant. “Tell the truth. We can tell the fucking truth!”
“That would cause more harm than good, Millie. We’d ALL go down for it and I don’t think any of us can handle that.” Fay called from behind the camera, fear breaking her voice as she spoke. “We were never meant to be here, what happened to him was our fault. If we tell someone, it could so easily come back on us. None of us were supposed to be out, we knew he had a propensity to go too far and we pushed him… fuck…” Tristan pinched the bridge of his nose and breathed heavily, Fay putting out a hand to comfort him, but Millie getting there first and hugging him tight, whispering something to him. She lingered for a moment on the shot of the two of them before putting the camera down to her feet as they walked away, cutting to black.
Millie: All that anger didn’t do much in the end, did it? Mathias was right, we were cowards and we deserve some kind of justice.
Warren: Maybe, but we were just kids. What were we supposed to do? The guy was dead.
Fay: No, he wasn’t.
I took a deep breath and tried to put my mind in a safer place, remembering better times, fun birthdays and meaningful songs.
I was about to see him again.
01:55 - The camera switches on, it’s the dead of night and Tristan trudges up the hill, panting and seemingly anxious. The moon hangs high overhead, a singular luminous eye following his trajectory and I swear I can see ripples around it, as if something is stirring in the infinite void, black clouds could be seen in the distance. Like it knows why he’s come back.
He stops short of going through the large steel door, letting the camera linger while catching his breath.
“I know this is stupid, I know everything about what I’m going to do is stupid. Breaking in, filming… what happens next, but…”
He turns the camera towards his face, a far more youthful Tristan staring back as my stomach contacts and I feel a sharp pang rip through my heart.
My baby brother.
“I can’t do this. I need to know if… if he’s… and if he is, I need to do the right thing. Then, I’ll take the tape to the Sheriffs county, or leak it online or… or… I don’t know, I just need to make sure that if someone has to pay for this… it’s me.” He pauses again, eyes welling up with tears before he tries to crack a smile. “Who knows? Maybe ol’ Livewire is pulling a prank, and he’s totally fine, ready to punk me. Maybe it’s not so bad and we can laugh this off when he’s better!” This last pause has his lips trembling, breathing heavily and holding back sobs as he swallows. “But if he’s as bad as I think he is, if it’s beyond help… I’ll make sure the right thing is done. For him. For us.”
He wipes his eyes and sniffs deep, shaking his head slightly before nodding and turning the camera back to the door, the key clunking in the old lock before giving way as he gingerly opens it, careful not to make too much noise.
The camera points down, but we know where he’s going, what he’s seeing.
A charred spot from so many days prior, the entire building shrouded in darkness. What was once our safe haven now just an imposing structure with lingering death. Dried blood caking the rotted wood and fell through the cracks to the floor below. The floor lined with scratches in the floorboards where someone had dug their nails in, dragging themselves desperately to safety, food or maybe even help. He followed it to the adjacent room, and the camera shook for a moment, lingering on the imposing frame leading to where Livewire lay.
The camera panned up, and we saw the charred, still living remains of Dallas “Livewire” Mendoza. His flesh charred in places and his body frail, malnourished and sickly. If he noticed Tristan coming in, he didn’t show it. Breathing softly, the exhalation like that of rusty bellows, Tristan put the camera on the floor beside him as he knelt at Livewire’s side, sobbing.
Millie: So he wasn’t lying… Oh, Tristan… Why?
Warren: He felt the same thing we all did, that immense guilt that we did something wrong. Amplified by the idea that maybe he was okay, just needed some extra help, but…
Preston: But he didn’t account on how bad it was. Fuck, why did he do this on his own?
Fay: Because he wanted to protect us all, he felt it was his words that sealed Livewires fate and so it was his responsibility to go back. I had tears in my eyes as we watched the footage, my twin and better half a broken boy trying to do what was right. This dismal room letting in no light, a small makeshift bed of discarded clothes and magazines we’d read on kinder days now propping up only part of Livewire’s body, a disused wardrobe with a filthy mirror covered in large smudges laying in the corner. This was where Livewire had spent the last few days of his life, and the crippling loneliness of that moment crushed me entirely.
Warren: Well, we know what happens next. Should I turn it off? He got up to reach for the remote and pause, but I put a gentle hand on his, shaking my head.
Fay: We watch it in full, we owe it to Tristan…and to Dallas.The group nodded solemnly and we continued watching, all of us sat forward with our hands ringing together.
There was only one thing left.
02:00 - After some time, Tristan slung the backpack he’d been carrying off of his back and pulled out a couple of items; a prized copy of smash bros. melee that he & Livewire had spent countless hours beating each other senseless on, a pair of coins, a photo we’d taken of the group some weeks prior…
And a pillow.
Placing all the items by his side, tears still running down his face, Tristan grabbed the pillow and looked into Livewires face one last time. The shallow, pained breathing unchanged.
“I’m so, so sorry, Dallas.” He whispered, before pushing the pillow onto his face.
There are few things we have witnessed in this world that match the sheer horror of watching a friend, a loved one, a sibling commit murder, even if it’s a mercy killing. Tristan never stopped weeping, he didn’t lose focus or become violent, but he held his grip tight as the already weak struggles from Dallas grew weaker as the seconds dragged into minutes.
But it was what we saw in the mirror that cemented our fear, steeled our resolve, and brought our anger to fresh heights.
That huge, unsightly smudge in the mirror was not a smudge.
It was a person, holding themselves up in the door frame behind Tristan and gleefully swinging like a child at the park.
It was Mathias. A deranged, younger, joyful Mathias stood over one of his best friends and, like the most depraved peeping tom, leered at the sight of the murder. His hair normally pinned back in a neat bun, now wild and greasy, covering his face and painting a far less composed individual. He simply swung in place as Tristan held the pillow down long after Dallas stopped moving before leaning over his friend and sobbing harder, apologising profusely. After a few moments, he placed the coins on his eyes, put the pendant over his neck and laid the game on his chest.
He was giving him a proper burial.
Millie: How in the fuck did Mathias know all this and NEVER say anything? Didn’t he say he felt guilty before?
Fay: Yeah, his desire to put this all into motion was because he felt we deserved to be punished for what happened to livewi- to Dallas, that our lies had consumed us and what we did warranted justice.
Warren: How that creepy fuck got away with it is beyond me though, wouldn’t Tristan have noticed him there?
Preston shook in his seat and when we turned to him, we saw that same fear he’d shown during his own show “Name That Anomaly”.
Preston: It’s just like last time, this isn’t real.
His hands shook, and he pointed before adding;
02:05 - Once Tristan had finished, the form of Mathias silently let his body drop to the floor before standing up and tiptoeing across the room and towards Tristan. His hands raised and fingers gnarled into claws, he looked ready to pull at any appendage Tristan had within his reach. But, just as he reached out, Tristan moved and picked up the camera to leave.
When he turned it back towards the doorway, there was nothing there.
I couldn’t tell you if Tristan had sensed something or if it was just timing, but he sighed for a moment before putting his backpack on and preparing to leave the building. As he did, the sounds of thunder and lightning could be heard overhead. He muttered a curse before the thunder clap scared him enough to drop the camera. We get a shot of him stumbling back and staring up at something as the lightning strikes and the whole building is illuminated.
On every wall, every piece of furniture and every previously unseen speck of wood was writing. Red writing.
“YOUR TURN.” lined the walls over and over.
A spark had been set and the red glow of the fire rose up in front of Tristan and across the stairs rapidly, the rotting wood providing excellent kindling for the hungry blaze to consume.
Dumbstruck, Tristan reached for the camera before seeing the blaze rip through the foundations and running for the door, most likely cutting his losses that the footage would be gone.
This was the night our hideout burned down and many of us, though terrified and still guilt-ridden, breathed a sigh of relief.
The shot lingered on the door as he ran out; the image flickering as the flames drew closer before the camera was raised from the floor and picked up, zooming in on Tristan as he ran away.
“Run away from your guilt, wallow in your shame, our time will come, they’ll know our name.” The voice cooed.
The camera switched to the scorched face of JJ as his flesh melted, the beams dropping from the ceiling and crashing into the wood, the red signs declaring “YOUR TURN” beginning to glow, almost throbbing in the light.
“Here’s the beginning, now we have the end. Mantis Reach. Tonight.”
His smile grew as teeth blackened, fell out and black blood flowed down his face, filling his mouth as images of the older footage inter spliced rapidly, the fires consuming his face as images of all of us laughing together played.
A young Millie showing off her lucky cat’s paw, brand new and accompanying a box of dead animals she was studying, much to the group’s disgust.
His smile stayed wide, the lips peeling.
Preston bringing foods he’d baked with his mom, Tristan nudging Fay and whispering something before the both of them warmly smiled and nodded.
His eyes sank into their sockets, the white flesh bubbling and melting, running down his face.
Warren, head banging to a record and flailing like a madman as we clapped, laughed and eventually joined in.
His hair singed, falling out in clumps as the scalp reddened and split. Something behind him stirs in the smoke.
Tristan and Fay imitating the fusion dance and operating as a multi-limbed being, speaking in unison and heartily laughing.
The figure behind him moves closer, awkwardly dragging its limbs in and out of focus.
Mathias hooking up a projector so the gang could play Mario Kart together, the whole group thanking him and patting his back. He looked genuinely overwhelmed.
The corpse of Dallas moved into view and stood beside JJ as the two continued to melt.
The final image being that of Dallas and Mathias standing shoulder to shoulder in the archived footage alongside Dallas & JJ’s fetid corpses, a pair of raspy voices echoing as the camera footage grew twisted and corrupted before shutting off.
“Upon Mantis Reach, you will look Beneath The Static. One last time.”
We sat in silence for a long time, no dramatic vomit, screaming or shouting. Just deafening silence as we processed it in our own way. Maybe we were just desensitised after so long and seeing so much, I don’t know. But the calm was unnerving for us all. We were hoping for some kind of large, Earth shattering revelation.
But instead, we simply had our guilt laid bare as well as confirming what I think we all knew; Tristan took the ultimate sacrifice for us.
Warren: Well, I guess we know what we have to do next, right?
He stood up, stretched and sighed, hunching his shoulders.
Preston: We have to go back. But isn’t the place gone? What else could be there now?
Millie: I think it’s more than that. I think we need to face this head on, whatever it is. We need to come to terms with what happened as well as acknowledging our part in this. I don’t know about you, but I want to sleep well at night all the time, not some of the time.
We nodded, but I felt a sickness I hadn’t felt since that day.
Preston: What if we don’t make it out? What if whatever is there takes us all one by one?
Fay: Well, then we’ll die knowing we did the right thing. Even if it’s over a decade too late.
We hugged for what felt like an eternity, the bonds between us all still strong and I swear I could feel someone’s hands on my shoulders, those of the people we left behind.
Setting off later that night, we arrived at the cordoned off dirt trail leading to Mantis Reach, a slew of messages from “CONDEMNED” to telling us to stay away under penalty of law. We clipped open the gate and trudged up the trail, no laptop to dictate but instead a nifty dictaphone Millie brought with her from work.
Millie: We use it all the time for patient reports, figured it may come in handy.
When we reached the summit and stared at the spot where our hideout had once stood, the gravity and finality of the situation hit us all like a freight train. There was no storm, no heavy rain, no ominous backdrop to greet us.
But there was a building.
It towered into the sky, several floors high. Some with blacked-out windows and other glowing with a faint purple light. A broadcast tower attached to the roof and a neon sign latched to the side of the building as we heard the glass doors beep and slide open for us.
It was a broadcast station and as that name flashed at me; I felt a chill run through my bones.
This was it.
“Beneath The Static.”

2020.07.10 20:35 __badgirlriri [REVIEW] Gucci Princetowns from non-TS Lisa Luxury
if you're from the philippines (or anywhere in south east asia, really), shopee won't exactly be your first choice for passable reps, but hey, it's nice to be wrong, especially when it means free shipping to your door and monthly discounts. i was given the confidence to buy from non-TS Lisa by another replady - u/hautologyxx
- when she posted her review on a chanel pearl crush. when i saw that she ended up with a really nice bag, i thought I'd give nTS-lisa a chance as well.
- - - SELLER INFORMATION
- Seller's Name: non-TS Lisa Luxury
- Seller's WeChat: vkkvip
- Seller's IG: vkkstudio
- Price: NT$2295 or 3850 PHP. the prices on her moments are in new taiwan dollar. shipping was free with a shopee voucher, and it was shipped with another item.
- Factory: unknown, lisa takes her own pictures - but judging from the few photos factory photos she's put up, i think she's able to source from huahui and some other factories that we know of. i just don't know which factory she got these shoes from, but I think she sources them from the same place zippy gets his mid-tier shoes. more on this later.
- Payment Method: shopee app
- Carrier: shopee standard delivery
- - - ORDER TIMELINE
- 6/25 - messaged lisa on wechat about the shoes. she confirms that she has them in my size. asked if i could pay thru shopee, she confirms that i can.
- 6/29 - i ask her about a wallet (a gift to my boyfriend for getting a new job, he says he'll review it too!) she says she has it too. i confirm if both the items are available in the colors that i want. oprder is confirmed. she made a link specifically for my order so that both items arrive together.
- 6/30 - paid. by the afternoon, package was already listed on tracking as ready to pick up from seller.
- 7/1 - psps were sent. i gl them without much thought.
- 7/4 - it takes 4 days for the courier to pick the items up, but it is picked up and shipped from shenzen on the same day.
- 7/8 - package arrives in the philippines.
- 7/9 - package arrives, and i'm surprised it was delivered so fast considering that shopee had a 7/7 sale.
- - - PHOTOS psps + factory photo my photos authentic reference by another rep lady! authentic
- - - QUALITY
- the thing is, if these weren't reps of another shoe, i don't think i could really fault them for the quality given their price. it reminds me of zara - you know it's not exactly the best quality BUT it's probably the best you could get at its price. i've paid more for worse shoes. sure, the leather is a little thin (-0.5) but these shoes have a good weight to them, and there was no hydroxyfufu smell. not going to lie these smelled like they were perfumed in order to mask the fufu smell - but whatever perfume they used worked because i could not smell a whiff of fufu.
- ok, this is where it gets a little tough. auth runs smaller, but this is true to size, which i appreciate. color is spot on, the hardware is a little too gold and the hardware itself looks to be slightly thinner than compared to the auth (-0.5) but honestly i don't think any one will notice that unless the auth was beside it, and even then it'd be pretty tough to catch unless they were REALLY looking and were creepily close to your feet. honestly, for me personally, this is all that's important since it's what people would see, but in the interest of fairness, let's grade the back of the shoe too.
- (-0.25) that stamping is MESSY. thankfully on the bottom of the shoe and no one's ever going to see it, but that's pretty much the only reason i only took a quarter of a point. a date code of some sort is supposed to be inside the shoe and that's also absent (-0.25). the ridges near the heel aren't well defined, and i'm pretty sure that they're using the wrong screws on the heel as well (-0.5). the insole itself is a little too close to the edge of the shoe, where on the auth it seems more nicely spaced (-0.25), and the insole type face looks ok at a glance, however is stamped a little too lightly (-0.25)
- i really wasn't expecting much from this pair. in fact, i wrote them off before they even got to me. i said i'd sell them on BST if i really didn't like them, but i think i'm keeping them. a lot of the things that would bother some people don't really bother me because no one is going to see them, and even if they would, it'd probably be long after you've already ruined the bottom of the shoe by walking around with them anyway. so while not exactly the most accurate rep, i don't mind these. in fact, i really like them. at least i can use them without really caring so much.
- nts-lisa is very easy to communicate with. her english is really good, she is very quick to reply and she uses stickers so talking to her felt like talking to a seller that you've already established a relationship with, despite this only being our first transaction. she's also on instagram, which is great for anyone who is locked out of wechat or is intimidated by it. i'd buy from her again!
- - -
hah, you thought i'd forget about the factory, did you? i didn't. i just didn't know how to insert it into all of that. well, while i was looking for other reviews, i saw this
review and thought i'd look at the psps and lo and behold, i see this picture
. i am a clown for not taking a picture of the sticker (i took it off before taking pictures for the "my photos" section - but god's honest that was the exact same sticker that was on the soles of one of my shoes. they're also similarly priced, and so that's why i think they're sourced from the same factory, whatever factory that is.
as always, ccw and i hope that you found this helpful!

2020.04.26 12:03 Scott-M-UK Men's feminine clothing (part 1, possibly)
I am sure a lot of us like to wear feminine women’s clothing, even if sometimes it doesn’t quite fit our male physiques. Either it doesn’t have space where we need it, or it has space where we don’t need it. Let’s face it, the average male just isn’t the same shape as an average female and not all of us are gentically lucky enough to have a feminine body shape.
However, I’ve been wearing feminine clothes for a number of years and sometimes you can find something feminine in mainstream mens stores. Here are a few examples:
Zara sold a mens leggings and skirt combo in black a while back (very comfy to wear) and they also sold a mens wrap skirt, designed to be worn over trousers/pants but it didn’t have to be. Unfortunately both are no longer in stock, but it’s worth keeping an eye out in case they do anything similar in the future.
ASOS, one of my favourite stores, regularly has feminine menswear, from meggings to short shorts, from lace or mesh t shirts/tops to satin shirts with a pussy bow. There are also quite a few crop tops for guys, some of which are currently on sale. And if you’re after a pastel coloured hoodie, they have those too, just go up a size for that oversized look. They also have a unisex range (Collusion) but unfortunately they haven’t offered us unisex skirts as yet, nor do they offer thigh high socks in mens foot sizes. However, as an aside, they do sell some of their own brand women’s shoes and boots in sizes up to UK female size 10 which I’ve found fits my UK male size 9 feet (Euro 43/US10). Speaking of boots, they do a nice range of mens heeled boots (up to 7cm), so if you fancy wearing heels but can’t find a women’s boot that fits, you could always try those.
How about mens feminine underwear? Brands such as HOM and Olaf Benz offer briefs and thongs in lace and mesh. Andrew Christian also has a nice range including thongs, although more aimed at gay males while Bodyaware sells feminine underwear for guys in silk, satin and lace. They also have a sister company called Xdress which sells feminine lingerie for guys as well as costumes (maid etc) that aren’t in Asian sizes. Unfortunately there does appear to be a mark up on these items and you could probably pick up a similar female item cheaper (from Amazon/China), but unless you are lucky enough to have a feminine physique sometimes you have to pay a little more.
Finally, mens tights/pantyhose are a thing with companies like Adrian and Glamory for Men selling tights aimed at males, however you can usually get away with just buying womens tights, especially if you just want a black or nude pair. However, note that "One Size" tights won’t fit an average or tall guy so always check for size charts.
If I think of more examples or find anything interesting in the future, I’ll do a part 2 post. Or feel free to add your own examples in the comments.
Note, I’m not being sponsored by any of these companies, I just wanted to offer up what I’ve learnt over the years.

2020.04.26 07:09 skunkyvegetables A critique of Euphoria's makeup trends
Modern American teen girls find every way to show everybody that sneers their direction that they do not care about the negative comments being made. They are called overly expressive and dramatic. Their parents question their mental health. Their friends will even act concerned when young Sarah starts dressing differently. But it’s nothing detrimental that is making these girls change their look – it’s the new wave of artistry that has hit the web. Makeup artists around the world are encouraging young women and aspiring gurus to join in on a trend that has the conservative folk shaking in their boots. Girls are wearing jewels on their faces, glitter on their shoulders, and spikes on their feet – all thanks to the initiative that we are not to be confined to a small box of ‘trendy’ wear. No matter a trip to the supermarket, your grandmother’s house, or a warehouse rave, women are wearing their expression in the form of makeup.
“Euphoria”, starring Zendaya and Hunter Schafer, aired its first episode on HBO June sixteenth, 2019. The episodes came out weekly and continued for 8 weeks. Its success was huge, having over half a million viewers watching the premiere on live television, according to Hollywood Reporter
. Zendaya is a young actress with a large following who likely brought in a lot of viewers between the ages of 14 and 22. Hunter Schafer made her debut as an actress on this show, and it got her to be a professional model. “Euphoria” follows the life of Rue, played by Zendaya, a drug-addicted teenager who just got out of rehab and she does not plan to continue sobriety. Her best friend Jules, played by Schafer, is a transgender woman trying to find where she belongs. The show’s popularity could be credited to the relatability of struggling through the tough times of high school. High school often pushes teenagers in a direction of poor decisions led by hormones and terrible influences and encourages them to be a part of the popular trends, or else they’re probably going to be mocked or called weird.
The students of East Highland are preparing for their winter formal. The pressure is high as everybody will be showing up and showing out for the biggest night of the semester. Jules is carefully placing Swarovski crystals on hers and Rue’s inner and outer eye corners while encouraging her to wear the dress because she usually dresses like Seth Rogan. The glitter on their eyelids is shining in the dim lighting. Their voices are soft as they attempt to hide their nervous shaking. Maddy, in an effort to make her anger-influenced, closeted ex-boyfriend jealous, has lined her eyelids with the same jewels and put on the prettiest cocktail dress in her wardrobe. They’re ready for the night, and they look the best they’ve ever looked.
Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?
The confidence in these young women to express themselves to the fullest has inspired other girls around the globe to show off their true colors. An influx of “Euphoria” makeup inspired videos hit YouTube. Instagram was flooded with collections of women adding their own spin on the unique looks, including a special non-sponsored post by James Charles
, a young, famous beauty influencer. Eyelids are being brushed with the brightest colors of palettes all because Zendaya, Schafer, and all the women casted were shown on-screen wearing makeup that represented their personalities, self-expression, and inner emotions. Friends are talking in between class times about the episode that aired the night before and telling how they’re going to use Maddy’s makeup look as their own on prom night. “Euphoria” created a new trend in young (and old) women to use bright pigments, loose glitter, and three-dimensional objects to show the world their true colors.
Traditionally, minimal to no makeup at all is acceptable in the larger public eye. But as the #MeToo movement and feminism grow and gain supporters on the daily, the want for infinite expression is demanded by women and men who see makeup as their creative outlet. Street-closing rallies, constant topics trending on Twitter, endless Instagram posts with electric colors, and verbal fighting-back have never been so intense. People are trying to reach a pedestal that allows them to be free with no judgment, and they wouldn’t get there without the participation of producers and directors creating television shows and series that demonstrate how self-expression is a basic human right.
When Paris or New York or London Fashion Week debut their looks, there are often several hundred new clothing items from brands that will use similar characteristics of the Fashion Week looks to gain money from consumers that don’t have the money to spend on designer items. For example, Forever 21 can be found copying major brands’ most popular items, and their sales see a huge increase when their customers find something they like. Forever 21 and Zara will copy looks on the runway and customers will see them in stores just weeks later, as claimed by Business Insider
. In order to fulfill their “Euphoria” fantasies, the viewers are recreating expensive looks with the tools they have at home. The dedication to support a program they love is expressed externally and publicly. The word gets around, and the original creator gets the praise, but the people participating in the trend also get praise and enjoyment. “Euphoria” inspired hundreds of YouTube creators and aspiring videographers to blossom and bring back a makeup style that inspires young people to be themselves.
Actresses from the television show were recruited to record themselves doing the looks seen in the famous episode. Alexa Demie, a.k.a Maddy, partnered with Vogue
to recreate her 90’s glam in a very personal video that she filmed in her bathroom. Demonstrating that you wouldn’t need a professional makeup artist to do the makeup creations is a reassurance to viewers that they are more than capable of recreating the look themselves, as most might believe they are not talented enough to. The effect of actresses continuing to produce media relevant to the show elongates the time period in which the show is in the light of the media. It also allows the audience to create a relationship with their favorite actresses and actors.
Famous drag queen Trixie Mattel has no problem showcasing her true self all over the internet. Her contribution to support people of all shapes, colors, and sizes is reinforcing the idea that everybody is beautiful, and everybody can present themselves how they please. Trixie and her partner-in-crime, Katya Zamolodchikova, host a Youtube show where they talk how they please and express themselves with no boundaries. In an interview by Entertainment Tonight
, Trixie explains how everyone can feel at home when they watch them and, “we've all felt like the weirdo or felt like the outsider, so on Drag Race [a Viceland show of hers], you watch an outsider in a room full of other outsiders embrace their outsider-ness so fiercely…”. Trixie knows what it’s like to not feel like yourself, and her contribution to be inclusive has sparked a lot of her fame.
It's hard to not be self-conscious in this world as a young woman. Sometimes I wonder what I should wear when I go on a walk around Flagstaff, and I must remind myself that nobody is remembering what I’m wearing… and who gives a shit if I’m in a groutfit? What even is the issue with wearing grey on grey?
The issue is the radical people who protrude their beliefs onto others with no form of consideration or open-mindedness. Those who feel strongly enough about certain beliefs – pro-life, pro-guns, etc. – are usually those who say nasty things to men and women expressing themselves, if we’re going to generalize. They scare them into hiding or back to a position where they don’t feel comfortable in public when they feel the most themselves. Hate crimes concerning transgender or any LGBTQIA+ individuals are likely to cease once the population sees and understands that everybody has a right of expression and they have no place intruding on it. It’s important to continue to air shows that reinforce the idea that everybody is beautiful because, without them, the discrimination of individuals that appear louder (physically and vocally) than others will continue until our day's end. Consider vocally complimenting the next person you see on the streets in glam. A stranger noticing another’s hard work and confidence is something that could change the way they present themselves for the better.

2020.04.17 22:49 olivia-700 Online shopping in Canada guide
Hey all my fellow Canadians,
I stumbled upon this guide
in our male sub counterpart, and figured we should have one here as well. The idea of the guide is to help Canadians find new stores to shop at without having to worry about duties and the exchange rate, though I'm sure Americans can probably find some good deals especially with the current exchange rate.
I also wanted to share this price tracker
- it lets you save items from a handful of these stores and notifies you when it goes on sale. Check it out, I hope some of you will find it useful!

First Chapter Previous Chapter Next Chapter
In the previous chapter
Valentin tried to take a Nap.
Crazy Karnakians gonna Crazy.
Cue the A Team Theme.
In this chapter
Another Smol is Recruited.
There is some extra-strength Concern.
Martin is Wary.
The bartender slid a half-full tumbler towards the leggy blonde. "One Old-Fashioned."
Zara Spencer smiled, her face dimpling in a most adorable yet calculated manner. She wore a blue knit dress that stretched over her toned body in a similarly calculated way. "You're the best, Tommy. Can you put it on my tab?"
Tommy's lined face settled into a sour frown. "Your tab is getting up there. I will need some cash."
The blonde smiled wider. "Just this one, then. I've got a sure thing comin' in any day now. Pleeease?"
He huffed and rolled his eyes. "Fine. This one and no more."
The woman's obsequious grin settled into a smug smile as Tommy turned away and headed for the other end of the bar. Her grin fell away as she felt somebody settle onto the barstool next to her. Without turning her head, she knew that the newcomer was big and male. There were plenty of empty stools along the bar, and yet he'd chosen to sit right next to her. She sighed and waited for the inevitable come-on line.
None was forthcoming, so she took a sip of her drink while her mind worked furiously. Her worrying turned the once-flavorful cocktail into ash in her mouth. If this wasn't a seduction attempt...maybe it was an old enemy? She glanced to her side, seeing nothing but a shaved head and a muscular arm signaling to Tommy.
She'd lasted a long time in a risky profession by remembering the smallest details. And now Zara realized she knew the owner of that head, even though she couldn't see his face.
are you doing here?" she hissed.
Oscar turned to her and smiled. "Hey, Zara. I see ya moved on from gin-and-tonics, eh?"
Zara opened her mouth, then closed it again as Tommy came hustling back. "What can I get you?" asked the bartender.
"Beer and a shot of bourbon, please," replied Oscar. He nodded towards Zara. "And I'll pay for her drink as well."
Benny raised an eyebrow and grinned at Zara. "New friend of yours?"
"An old acquaintance," she said, making a conscious effort to un-clench her teeth. "Haven't seen him in ages."
Oscar waited until he had his drinks in front of him as well as a well-departed Tommy before speaking again. "How's life?"
She gave a shrug that somehow looked more elegant than a curtsy before the Queen. "Eh, makin' a living. You here to catch up on old times? Run out of beach bunnies to seduce?"
"Nah, I'm married...or near as dammit by this point."
Zara raised both eyebrows. "Reaaallly," she drawled. "She must be one hell of a woman."
"You better believe it. Got anything in play?"
"A millionare who thinks he knows how to pick ponies. Got another who fancies herself a commodities broker. I figure I can milk a couple million out of 'em before they wise up."
"I'll pay you ten times that. Half up front. Team effort, single target, very high security."
She took a sip of her drink, and it no longer tasted like ashy failure. "That's a generous sum, even for a high-sec retrieval. What's the catch?"
"Short term. Less than a month prep."
"Fuuuuuck that noise."
"The Senate will owe you a very big favor."
That made her pause for a while. "Go on."
"That's all I can say for now, until I know you're in."
She glowered at her own image in the mirror behind the bar, unwilling to meet Oscar's eyes.
"I need a world-class Face, Zara. Rory's on board."
Zara gave a low, cynical laugh. "Of course he is. That shaggy doof never had two coins to rub together." She sighed. "But I gotta say...I do miss his ugly mug. And your jobs were never boring. Fuck it, I'm in."
Martin stormed into the Tank and shut its door. One couldn't really 'slam' the aforementioned door thanks to its substantial weight, but he gave it the old college try. "Is this really
necessary?" he demanded of the secure room's only other occupant.
Heidemann sighed. "You know, there's being a cowboy and being monumentally reckless. Why didn't you get permission for GIDEON MARKDOWN?"
Martin snorted. "Because I knew I'd never get it. The higher-ups are too worried about treading on the xenos' feet. Has somebody complained?"
"You might say that," said Heidemann. "The powers that be received a very excited
phone call from one Mr. Antal Soma on Zephyr Station Ten. Seems he had a visit by Commander Maksimov."
"Yes, 'Ah'. Our unpleasant Russian had a companion, a Dorarizin who somehow managed to get into one of the most heavily-secure areas of any Zephyr Station without getting herself filled full of holes." Heidemann leaned back in his chair. "As you can imagine, this has caused a bit of a stir."
Martin started pacing, his mind working over all the angles. "Let me guess. They demanded we hand the Egg back."
"No, they wanted to offer you a back-rub. OF COURSE they want it back!"
"Absolutely not," replied Martin. "We need this. They're not using this tech, why kick up such a fuss?"
Heidemann leaned forward and set his elbows on the room's single table. He massaged his temples as he spoke in a defeated tone. "Because the last time they gave us some 'obsolete' technology it caused huge societal dislocations that we're still
cleaning up after. Where is the Egg?"
Martin stopped his pacing and stared steadily at Heidemann. "Are you taking their side?"
"I'm on humanity's side."
"Bullshit. Don't go all wobbly on me."
Heidemann lunged to his feet. "DAMMIT, Martin! This isn't about 'wobbly', it's about common goddamn sense!"
Martin crossed his arms and said nothing.
"I know how fragile our situation is. I know you want to change that. But pulling an op like this only breeds mistrust." Heidemann spread his hands pleadingly. "Do you really want every human off-planet put under tight surveillance? Because the Senate could do just that. They have the resources. Is that really worth us getting some obsolete super-soldier tech?"
"Did you see the feeds from Atlanta?" Martin's lips peeled back in a snarl. "I sure as shit did, in real time. One Karnakian without power armor managed to rip a man's arms clean off. We nearly wound up with Armageddon because of that."
"The Karnakians managed to stop the nukes..." began Heidemann.
Martin slammed his palm down onto the tabletop. "That is irrelevant! The Karnakians set off the Dead Hand in the first place! I will NOT allow our species' survival to hinge on the charity of others!"
Heidemann's shoulders slumped. "One more time, Martin. Where's the Egg?"
"You'll never know." Martin jerked his head up towards the ceiling. "They'll
never know. If they try to pressure me or my people, I have plenty of compromising files in my personal stash that will quickly become public." Martin pointed a steady finger at Heidemann. "That goes for you too."
He spun and headed for the door, only to be stopped by a statement from Heidemann. "Martin. You go through with this, even if you succeed in reverse-engineering the Egg...there will be hell to pay."
"So be it," replied Martin. "At least I'm not giving up on my species' future due to political bullshit."
This time he managed to slam the door on the way out of the Tank.
Valentin walked around a polymer composite crate; the container happened to be just a little bigger than average-Karnakian-sized. "This seems too easy."
The Silken Feather paced behind him, looking over her future 'lodgings' with a similarly critical eye. "[Looks are deceiving. There's a lot of shielding built into this crate. It should pass through normal scans with no problem.]"
The Commander cocked an eye behind him at the Karnakian. "And if somebody opens the crate during a routine inspection?"
"[That's what hard-light holograms are for,]" replied the thief. "[Don't worry, I've done this plenty of times, into places with much tighter security.]"
Valentin stopped his circuit and crossed his arms. He let out a Slavic grumble. "Hrmmm, if you say so. Just remember, you get found and our whole plan goes down the..." He stiffened and trailed off as a set of claws settled onto his head. The claws began to gently comb through his scalp. While the sensation felt nice, those claws were also attached to a giant sapient carnivore. One with lots and lots
of teeth. "Um..."
The Silken Feather snatched her hand back. "Oh. Oh! Sorry. It was just instinct, I swear!"
Valentin waved her off. "No problem. I suppose we are ready, da?"
She nodded with typical Karnakian enthusiasm and trotted off. Valentin watched her go, rubbing his freshly-petted head as he put two and two together. Then he stomped off to hunt down the damned Amerikosy.
Oscar walked towards the Claw's
hangar, clipboard in hand as he went through what he figured he'd need for the upcoming operation. To any onlooker, the actual list would read more like grocery shopping, with lots of references to various types of onions and breads. It was all code for more nefarious items, just in case a certain Veridicator happened to peer over his shoulder.
A stubby finger thumped into his chest, stopping his forward momentum. Oscar looked up in surprise into Valentin's unsmiling face.
"How long have you known?" demanded the Russian.
"The aliens. First that Dorarizin treating me like a pup, then getting groomed by that idiot Karnakain. I'm not stupid." He leaned forward, staring daggers up at Oscar. "They find us...milyy."
Oscar thought about denying it for about two seconds. But Valentin was no idiot. "Yeah. They do."
"Fuck." Valentin turned away and glared at the corridor's wall as if daring the composite material to find any humor in humanity's current situation. Finally he gave one brief snort of laughter. "Eh, suppose it could be worse."
Oscar walked into the warehouse and set down his backpack on a large table in the center of the expanse. Rory walked up beside him and plonked a battered valise onto the same table. The slight-of-hand artist wore a parka that added to his already substantial bulk.
"Where's our other compatriots?" asked Rory. "Or are you planning on me 'n Zara doing this all by our lonesome?"
Zara sashayed up beside him. Her parka was just as functional as the other two, but somehow she made it look like she was stepping down the center catwalk right in the midst of Paris Fashion Week. She set her own much more small and elegant bag next to Rory's.
"Now why would you think we'd need anybody else?" she purred.
Rory rolled his eyes. "Let's see ya try to seduce a CCTV system."
"The others on their way," said Oscar. He looked up at the big crate which sat ten feet away from the table. "One of 'em's here already."
A side-door opened, admitting a drift of blowing snow. Valentin entered, wrapped in a heavy parka. Two figures walked in behind him. They were even more swaddled in winter clothing, complete with goggles obscuring their eyes.
"Reminds me of summer!" called out the Russian. He had a big challenging grin on his face.
Oscar rolled his eyes. "Yeah, yeah, Russians aren't bothered with cold. Who are your partners here...?" Oscar trailed off as both of Valentin's companions removed their goggles. Two pairs of brown and definitely female eyes stared unamused back at Oscar and the other two humans.
Valentin kicked the snow off of his boots. "Don't know their names."
Rory glared at the Russian. "What is this, amateur hour? You plaster some signs on a lamppost or something?"
The Commander grinned wider. "Not to worry!" As he spoke, the two newcomers began unwinding their scarves and throwing back their hoods. Just from viewing their faces, Oscar had to admit that they were both very fine examples of Slavic femininity.
"Don't know names, but know them well," said Valentin. "For job like this, could not ask for better." He waved a hand at one of the women, a brunette. "This is Thing One." Another wave at the other woman, a sandy blonde. "This is Thing Two."
Oscar snorted. "Yer shittin' me."
"We are not shitting you," said Thing One. Her voice was a lovely soprano, but her face was set in a serious frown.
"Nobody knows our names," added Thing Two. Her voice was lower and smokier than her compatriot. She pointed her chin at Valentin. "Not even him."
Zara's mouth curled up in a slight smile. "Hmm...I can see how that would be valuable."
Thing Two met her eyes and smiled just as slightly back.
Rory pulled his valise back off of the table. "Right! Oscar, it was good to see you again but next time leave me out of your half-assed bullshit, okay?" He turned to leave.
"You leave, you don't get paid," said Oscar.
The shaggy man stopped in mid-stride. "Money does me no good if I'm warming a jail-cell bunk with my ass."
"Not to worry!" said Valentin. "Thing One is best scrounger on planet. IDs, vehicles, you name it she can get it. Thing Two is best sneaker I've ever known. A true ghost."
Rory sighed and walked back to the table, thumping his suitcase back onto its surface. "All right. I'll withdraw my objections for the moment." He raised one bushy eyebrow at Thing One. "I do expect to challenge your collection capabilities in the near future."
"Bring it," replied Thing One.
Zara tapped a finger on her chin. "We may be light on direct technical expertise. Unless our formidable-looking Russian here is taking that role?"
Valentin shook his head. "No, that's a job for our final team member." He nodded over at the crate. "We should introduce her."
"Yep." Oscar set out four earbeads onto the table. "You'll all need these."
Zara regarded the translator devices with suspicion. "Why?"
In response, Valentin walked over to the crate and tapped a few buttons on its keypad. One side of the crate cracked open with a hiss, then slid aside. Inside was neat stacks of freeze-dried food...stacks that shimmered as a huge, clawed foot pushed its way through the illusion. As the foot settled down onto the warehouse floor the 'food' vanished to reveal The Silken Feather.
The dyed-blue Karnakian pulled herself out of the crate and stretched, resulting in an audible series of pops from her spine. She grinned down at Valentin. "[You see? Piece of cake!]" She looked up at the humans ranged around her in evident delight. "[Hello, everyone! I'm ever so glad to make your acquaintance!]"
Thing One, Thing Two, Zara, and Rory stared in disbelief at the very obvious and oh sweet Baby Jesus so very illegal
Earth-trespasser who stood before them.
Rory spun on his heels and screamed right into Oscar's ear. "ARE YOU. FUCKING. KIDDING. ME?!"
After a lot more soothing of frayed nerves (helped along with reminders of just how much they were all earning), the team arranged themselves around the table. Both of the Things and Rory put themselves as far from the Karnakian as they could. Zara, on the other hand, seemed fascinated by the alien and stood right next to her.
Oscar unrolled a set of printouts in front of them all. "Until we can get a proper holographic display set up, these'll have to do." He placed a picture of the Egg on top of the stack. "This is the target. Very valuable, and that's all you need to know."
"I'm not an idiot," said Rory. "The Senate wants this thing, so either it's something we made that they decided we shouldn't have...or it's something of theirs we lifted. My money's on the latter."
"What money?" asked Zara with a grin.
Rory narrowed his eyes at her. "Maybe I should lift your makeup kit and replace it with a barrel of sludge."
"[This is very exciting!]" said the Silken Feather. "[I get to witness authentic [human] banter!]"
"Banter?" asked Rory in puzzlement. "Nah, Miz beauty queen here's just being a jerk."
"[Beauty?]" The Karnakian swooped her head down in front of Zara, staring right in her face with a big fanged smile and all four eyes open wide. "[Are you considered beautiful among [humans]?]"
Zara swallowed hard when she viewed aaall
of those teeth. "Um, yes. Yes I, I am. Do you mind if I ask the same question of you?"
"[Not at all!]" The Silken Feather preened her crest back with one hand. "[Half of my exploits I achieved through appealing to my species'...baser instincts. Even in this ridiculous color, I could seduce most anyone I desired.]"
Oscar cleared his throat. "IF we could get on with the briefing? Y'all can speculate however you want, all you need to know is that when I get this thing in my hand y'all get your second half of your payments. So. Here's schematics of the facility, plus overhead views of the base."
Now that they had some hard data to look at, the group became all business as they pored over the prints.
"Seismic warning sensors," muttered Thing One. "Won't be able to dig our way in. Assuming Egg-thing is in this bottom storage room here?"
"That's the most logical place," replied Oscar. "But we're still gonna need to get eyes on it before final execution of any heist. We're also gonna need to put together a schedule for patrols, plus do a survey of the security systems to see if this intel is still fresh."
"What's the turnover like for the base personnel?" asked Rory.
Valentin waved a meaty hand, palm up. "Mostly high. The support staff tends to be replaced often. Lots of them go for the xeno placement program, and a lot of them succeed."
"That might work," mused Rory. "Me and one other, maybe Thing Two, if we get in as janitors that could allow us to do a goodly bit of recon."
"And what am I, chopped liver?" demanded Zara. She drew herself up and stared down haughtily at Rory.
"You also stand out in a crowd," said Oscar. "We'll need you to work at getting us some proper base IDs so that we can duplicate 'em."
Thing One raised a hand. "Can I ask obvious question? Why don't we just use her?" She gestured at The Silken Feather. "She's alien. Got access to technology we can't even guess at. Our best computer security systems would be as joke."
The Silken Feather fidgeted her claws together. "[It's not quite that simple. Yes, human systems are easier
to crack but that is not the same thing as easy
. And my means are rather limited. I brought some...items with me,]" she gestured towards her crate, "[...but I should limit their use. If I'm caught with them I'll be in serious trouble. They're far to advanced to be used around [humans].]"
Thing Two snorted and spread her arms, indicating the entire warehouse. "You're standing on Earth! I'd say you're already in it up to your feathered neck!" She dropped her hands, grinning to take the sting out of her words. "Just like the rest of us."
The Silken Feather peered at Thing Two for a long moment, then gave a piping laugh. "[Exactly!]"
Rory crossed his arms and frowned. "If we need to, can we get more resources out of the Senate?"
Oscar shrugged. "Not exactly. This whole thing has to fall under 'plausible deniability'."
"And what about you and our Russian colleague here? Are you two just acting as bagmen?"
"We can't participate directly," said Valentin. "Our faces are too well known to the opposition."
The bear-like man grunted. "Then we have to get creative." He reached forward and picked up the picture of the Egg and regarded it for a moment. He rolled it in between his thick palms, crumpling it into a loose ball. He held the paper ball up in between a thumb and forefinger. "See, this is the target. We want it, but they know we want it. We could try to steal it..." Rory cupped his other hand over the paper ball and lifted it away from its cradle. He held the grasped ball out in front of him and pointed his other index finger at it. "...but they'll be expecting anything obvious."
He opened the fist, revealing nothing but empty air.
The Silken Feather clapped her hands together. "[OOOH, I like it! I saw you do the drop, it's in the middle of your other hand!]"
Rory gave her an evil grin. "Are you sure?" He opened his other 'pointing' hand, displaying its palm to the Karnakian. She stared in amazement at his very empty
"See, misdirection is not distraction," Rory continued. His manner was like a professor lecturing a postgraduate class. "Distraction is making a ruckus somewhere over there
while you pull off your sneaky stuff over here
. That's amateur hour bullshit. True misdirection is all about putting the audience's attention exactly where you want it, when you want it."
"Should I check my pockets?" asked Oscar.
"You probably should," replied Rory with a smug smile.
Oscar did so and sure enough felt an unfamiliar lump in his pocket closest to Rory. He pulled it out to show the paper ball to others before un-crumpling it. It was, as expected, the by-now well-creased image of the Egg.
"That's very impressive, but what's your fuckin' point?" asked Zara. Her smile was now not quite so sardonic, and her eyebrow arched elegantly.
Rory smiled back. "I'm just saying we shouldn't dismiss any ideas out of hand. Now let's go through the security systems again..."
The watch leader straightened up as Martin strode into the facility's main control room. Both the watch leader and his subordinates looked out upon a multitude of monitors, each one showing a different angle of what appeared to be the same set of bland beige corridors.
"Er...sir?" the leader asked in a half-hearted challenge.
"Never mind that, you know who I am. Have you received any odd requests?"
Martin stopped in front of the much-taller man, his hands on his hips. "Don't make me ask again."
The leader rubbed the back of his neck. "Well, we did receive a request to account for any nonstandard items in our inventory."
"And what did you tell them?"
Martin avoided sagging in relief. "You acted correctly, of course. It's a standard test." He reached up and patted the man on his shoulder, turning away to regard the sea of similar hallways on the displays.
Behind his pleased exterior his guts churned. It couldn't be coincidence; if Commander Maksimov was last seen in Earth orbit, then Oscar couldn't be far behind. Martin knew his former protege was somebody he couldn't dare underestimate. The only silver lining in this whole affair was that the Senate couldn't move openly against Martin; they'd want to keep things secret, which meant he'd have the advantage.
An advantage on paper, at least. Martin held no illusions about Oscar. The man had thrown his lot and his life in with the very xenos he'd been sent to investigate, in the worst case of Stockholm Syndrome that Martin had ever seen. If possible, the traitorous bastard would try to stage some sort of break-in to steal the Egg back.
Martin's eyes flicked back and forth ceaselessly over the monitors. "Where are you?" he murmured. "I know you're out there..."

2019.12.31 00:02 youbetterhavetacos To All the Reps I’ve Loved This Year ❤️ feat. My Poor Impulse Control. TB AND AE finds (for maximum ease and wallet damage)
Hi all! My family has finally left and (as I predicted) nobody recognized or appreciated my amazing rep finds, so I’ve come here to seek approval instead! I only recently got into the Rep Game and I’m already OBSESSED!! I’ve spent so much time browsing this subreddit, making wish lists, and reverse image searching TaoBao that I probably could have actually learned Mandarin by now. In hindsight I probably should have done that instead…
In any case, here’s a list of some of the TB and AE items I’ve bought and loved this year (as promised in the title) as well as finds I’m drooling over for the New Year. I will also be including some items that I wish I hadn’t bought so you can learn from my mistakes since clearly I’m never going to. I've done my best to organize these in some discernible fashion, but I’m also currently celebrating the departure of my family with some drinks so we’ll see how that goes. ITEMS I HAVE BOUGHT The Good
- Toteme trousers – AliExpress link – They are beautiful and I love them. I feel like a Swedish Instagram model until I come to the sad realization that I am short as fuck and my OOTD mirror selfie would unfortunately feature the giant pile of laundry in the corner of my room.
- Unbranded White Polka Dot Zara Blouse –AliExpress link - V v cute and about the same quality as Zara i.e. must be hand washed or the seams will rip. Ask me how I know this…
- Aritzia Bodysuit – TaoBao link – IT’S A WHITE BODYSUIT THAT’S NOT SEE THROUGH!! Pure Magic. I don’t want to say gray market since it seems like that term is used a bit loosely sometimes, but I’ve tried on the auth and this feels exactly like it.
- Celine Silver Hoop Earrings – TaoBao link – Love them and enjoy staring into their gloriously shiny reflection and imagining myself to be a classy French woman that casually wears designer earrings to the boulangerie to pick up a baguette
- Agolde Pinch Waist Kick Flare Jeans – TaoBao link – Ordered my usual jeans size and they fit shockingly well! They make my butt look a bit flat but I can’t really blame my sad butt genes on the jeans (this will be my only bad pun I promise)
- Cat pillow cover – TaoBao link – It’s a pillow with a cat’s asshole embroidered on it and I giggle everytime I see it because I’m an overgrown child. Not sure whether it’s a rep of something but it makes me very very happy because it’s so dumb.
The What the Fuck is This
- Nicholas Kirkwood Beya flat – TaoBao link – The RL starter pack classic! They look and feel great but sadly even a size up from my usual is too small. Hoping to sell these on the RepLadies BST as soon as I have enough karma so at least somebody can enjoy them without the hassle of Superbuy.
- Unbranded Turtleneck Sweater – TaoBao link – From the same shop as the infamous RL starter pack cashmere hoodie (which is very lovely btw). It’s so so soft and not itchy at all, but I’m sad to say this fits me a little bit strangely. The turtleneck part doesn’t fall quite as well as it does in the picture, but this might just be a “me having a weird short neck” problem.
- Unbranded Celine Gold Hoops –AliExpress link – Copped these from a finds post and feel a need to warn you off of them. They look nothing like the picture and are so ridiculously heavy I couldn’t wear them if I wanted to (and to be clear I absolutely do NOT want to).
- Unbranded Black Coat – TaoBao link – This was in an OOTD post and looked so chic in the photo, but the second I opened the package and looked at it in person I gasped. Not in a good way. I believe it is technically clothing because it does cover my naked body with a cloth-like substance, but that’s the nicest thing I can say about it.
🔥 FINDS FOR THAT NEW YEAR NEW ME FEELING
My New Year’s resolution is to only buy practical things that I will get a decent amount of use out of. I predict that I will last at least 3 weeks before I cave and buy a ton of beautiful things I don’t need. Am I perfect? No. But do I try my best? Also no.
That's all for now!! Hope you all have a very Happy New Year wherever you are!
