[Lore] A window of opportunity is an opportunity to go through a window

2022.01.26 01:43 The_fetching_netch [Lore] A window of opportunity is an opportunity to go through a window

821 DR, Myles Fowler's manse in the Shadow City
Once again Frynne thanked the builders of manse in the Shadow City for their aversion to glass windows. Of course in the sweltering heat of Dorne there was no need for them, with simple openings in the wall serving as lighting. And as an exit, if one was sufficiently small and had such a window on their bedroom. Recently she had found it slightly more difficult, courtesy of some recent growth spurts. Eventually though she made her way onto the roof and climbed down into an alley, eager to begin the day's exploits.
The manse itself was quiet, and Frynne knew none would disturb her now empty room. Father was sleeping off another day of revelry, and would eventually wake to begin the next one. Mother was either asleep or busy. Most importantly, her Septa wouldn't arrive for lessons until the late morning. Which meant the next few hours were a window of opportunity. As was her own window.
The Shadow City at this time of day was, in contrast to home, very much awake. This was a merchant's town, and unlike nobles merchants couldn't afford to sleep in. Frynne was dressed in roughspun rags but stooped over to add the final piece of her disguise: a coating of grime in her yellow hair. Luckily she had inherited the slightly olive skin tone of her mother rather than the paleness of Fowlers, so her hair was all that would mark her out as a noble from the Red Mountains. And there she was, an ordinary beggar girl of the Shadow City. Now to begin the morning's exploration.
The manse was in the westward part of the city, freestanding rather than built up against one of the Winding Walls. Here was where many nobles and the wealthier merchants resided. It was also home to some of the finer taverns of the city, hence why her father preferred it. Even here though, the streets were a twisted labyrinth of narrow alleys and winding passages. But here was where Frynne had most thoroughly explored, and recently she had begun travelling further afield.
First on the list was the Essosi part of town. As anywhere in the Shadow City, there were markets. Here, the strangest thing Frynne noticed was the hair. As well as the usual dark haired folk many had pale blonde or white hair, even those that were relatively young. Mixed in were even stranger colours, blues and greens and purples, even yellows brighter than Frynne's own. Often she would come here and admire some wonder from the east, a cunning device or a peculiar sculpture or interesting dress. Today though, there was nothing particularly new. Many of the finer artisans weren't displaying their wares. Frynne supposed they were preparing for when Drazenko Rogare married the Princess. He was a friend of her father's supposedly, and she knew he was important here. Still, that meant she must proceed onwards in search of something new.
She travelled further east, closer to Sunspear. After ducking through more dingy alleys she arrived at another bazaar. Now, was there anything here that could be interesting... "Fireplums! Fine fresh fireplums here! The finest fruits of the Reach!" The calls came from a portly and red-faced merchant, one who looked not too dissimilar to the fruit he sold. Beside him was a wiry man wearing a sword, and below him were the fruits in question, which were broadly similar to plums but came in shades of yellow and orange. Frynne wondered idly what the name meant. Perhaps they were spicier than ordinary plums, like a sweeter version of her favourite dragon peppers. There was only one way to find out, and she had to find out.
She could have gotten money off her father easily enough, had she needed it, but she had quickly realised that money on small beggar girls attracted unwanted attention. Instead, she approached the stand gradually, her head turned towards another stall. As the merchant and a customer haggled, she snagged a single fireplum and concealed it in her dress. It seemed today wasn't her lucky day, and almost immediately there was a cry of "Thief!" Of course, it was perfectly possible to attract unwanted attention without money.
She broke into a run, weaving through bemused passersby and quickly turning into an alley. She caught a glimpse of the wiry swordsman pursuing her. He was faster than her of course but she knew the Shadow City better, and that was worth more than mere speed. She darted down the alley then went right into another passage way. Then left. Under a beam. Right again. Through a makeshift dwelling. Onto a cart. A leap past the driver. Left again. Into a little shelter. And there she finally slowed, pausing quietly out of sight. She heard footsteps pass by quickly, followed by silence. Frynne allowed herself to finally breathe again.
With the escape successful, there was only one thing needed to complete the victory. She bit into the plum hungrily, letting the juices drip down onto the ground. It was sweeter than richer than most plums, but didn't have any hint of spice. Just a plum then, despite the name. Was it worth the pursuit? Frynne smiled. The pursuit herself had been an adventure, and that made the day worth it. The grin remained as she made her way through the passages back to home.
Frynne scrambled up onto the roof and crawled through the window. Almost as soon as she touched her bedroom floor she heard footsteps coming up the stairs. Septa Ellaria was here already! She quickly doused her hair in a washbasin several times to remove the grime before frantically undressing. She deposited her street clothes just outside the window and began frantically throwing on undergarments and tightening knots. A knock sounded and she yelled "One moment!". 30 seconds later, the door opened to reveal Frynne with hair askew and a dress very clearly thrown on with extreme haste. The Septa pursed her lips. "Frynne, a young lady does not yell. And look at the state of you!" Frynne almost laughed aloud. If only the Septa knew the half of it.

2022.01.26 01:43 Professional-Copy791 Expired certification

Hey guys. I’m a Registered Nurse and was wrongfully terminated from my hospital In October 2021. I grieved the termination and won the case- I got reinstated in December 2021. My BLS card expired in November 2021. Now, it is 100% my responsibility to renew my BLS but do I have any legal shot to fight this since they hired me and put me on schedule and let me work? They didn’t even realize I had an expired BLS until I asked my educator for a copy of my certifications and she logged into the website using my work email (which I didn’t have access to prior to returning and when I returned, all of my emails were wiped) and was able to get me a copy but that’s how she realized that it was expired. So basically, if I hadn’t asked her to help me and she hadn’t logged in, they wouldn’t have known it was expired and that I was working without an active BLS for 3 weeks. I also have ADHD and see a psychiatrist which I’m just throwing out there to see if it’ll help my legal case. Guys, I know it was my responsibility to get my BLS updated but at this point I know I’m being targeted and want to fight back. Helppp 😩

2022.01.26 01:43 itsmematthewc Weirdest special interests?

I’ve had a variety of special interests, some of them completely “normal” (e.g. animals, science, computers, collecting) but I’ve had some weird ones too. The strangest ones are probably wish-granting organizations (like Make-a-Wish), the Adult Swim TV show Xavier: Renegade Angel (it’s a weird one but it’s hilarious), and scary PSAs/PIFs (to me they are like mini horror movies). I’ve had a hard time explaining interests like these to other people, so I tend to keep them to myself. What have you guys experienced?

2022.01.26 01:43 legendariel Early Christmas Morning

After a long night serving and helping close down the bar on Christmas Eve/morning, I worked up a hunger. The only place near my home that was open was an IHOP so I popped in for a quick meal at about 3-4am.
I was appropriately ashamed for being "that guy" who wanted a meal during a holiday which necessitates a place being open and staffed so I wanted to just place my order and not further inconvenience my server in any way.
There was a guy sitting across from me who was being a real demanding asshole to our shared server. He tried to strike up conversation with me because he recognized me from the bar I worked at. He was laying it on thick trying to get my number but was still being so rude to our server.
Like, you know that I work in the service industry and you're trying to holler at me while I can perfectly well see that you're being a dick to your server. On Christmas!
When she dropped the check I wrote on it and motioned for her to come see. I had written "that guy is a fucking asshole and I'm sorry you have to deal with him."
She gave me a smile and a nod. I left her 100% tip because God knows that guy wasn't gonna tip for shit.
Just remembered this and wanted to share. I'm sure y'all already know, but be kind to your servers.

2022.01.26 01:43 Novaa974 How to get into places like hotels/restaurants ?

I've been playing for around 4 days irl and I have at least 3 weeks of in-game time spread across a lot of characters because I died a lot lol
I finally got some progress after getting stuck for a while, I have guns, energy, food, water and a car but no gas.
The problem is when I want to loot places I have never been that aren't just houses, there are groups of 5 to 10 zombies scattered around the area. I tried shooting a gun far away to lure them but the range of the noise seem strangely minimal, I also kitting them and losing them in the forest but there are just too many zombies and many just stop chasing and linger around the location I want to loot. And on top of that there are always zombies inside the buildings too.
Sneaking impossible and I would probably die or get exhausted before killing half the zombies in the area.

2022.01.26 01:43 grim-gaze Length of Trip: Hbr vs Freebase

I got some robotabs for the first time. One bottle of syrup robocough was the perfect trip for me, but I can hardly stomach even that small amount of syrup.
I know freebase is ~1.3x as strong but how does the length of the trip compare between Hbr and freebase? And will staggering when I take them (like 10 at first, then 10 an hour later) lengthen the trip?

2022.01.26 01:43 ThatWhovian2001 Where can I get an affordable dental cleanup done at?

I spent around 3-4k on just a cleanup for dentists over the last decade. I went to this clinic once in ratmalana and he took about 400rs for it. I'd go there again, but the doctor is really hard to come by at times.I was not aware that it could go so low, but the dentist was really good and was a really nice guy.
Do you guys know any dental clinic that wont cost me a bunch of money? Closer to Mount Lavina/Dehiwela side but anything is fine. And if you know any other affordable clincs that are preety good for anything ,do let me know! Thanks to all

2022.01.26 01:43 NightmareSoftware What’s the deal with all the city water bill extra fees?

Does anyone know why there are so many extra fees besides what water you actually use and why they aren’t based upon how much water you use? I guess it doesn’t make sense to base the storm water charge off of water usage and the water service charge could be considered a base charge. The waste water and waste water capital charges seem like they could be based off of usage. It seems like low water users shouldn’t be paying as much for waste water because they aren’t producing as much waste water.

2022.01.26 01:43 sean_stark PhD in Civil engineering admitted student - advice needed on finances.

Hello everyone. I have just received an offer for a PhD in Civil engineering from UT Austin (Environmental and water resource engineering track) for Fall 2022, however the offer letter didn't specify the funding and stipend details. Can any current grad student in the civil engineering program give me an estimate of what the typical stipend is like (before and after tax), and how suitable it is for daily life in Austin? From what I've gathered from other websites, the graduate stipend in UT Austin is on the lower side, but obviously that depends on what expenses are like in Austin. Any help or advice would be welcome! I am an international applicant who has never lived in the US before.

2022.01.26 01:43 shaiida Is this considered lying?

Me: So how did you spend your Sunday? Did you have a good evening?
Bf: I spent it on my bed. Some of it on my desk chair as well. I really didn't do anything except lazing around and enjoying the bad weather outside. It is particularly unpleasant in winter.
Me: (has weird gut feeling) are you sure you didn't go for dinner with *insert the name of a girl he hangs out with here".
Bf: Yes, I am sure I did go out to dinner with said girl.
To provide some context, he did go to a bar to have dinner with her and another girl the night before until 2/ 3am and told me about it. I wasn't upset or anything. He met her again for dinner the next day but left her out of his day. I asked him why he would lie, he says that I would be jealous and upset if he told me he met her again for dinner, a reaction that I have never shown with regards to him hanging out with friends who happen to be girls. And that he had answered truthfully when I asked. (Also note that this "honesty" could be because the girl posted some stories of the dinner they had on her IG, which could be why he admitted to the dinner anyway).
What does reddit think about this?

2022.01.26 01:43 _hafxah What trope would fit Gregory's storyline?

People say they are friends to lovers but I feel like there is a specific trope for their story no? Chasing one person but then falling for the other? It's a very common one as well...I feel like I have seen it numerous times in tv shows/films.
- Little Women - Laurie chased Jo all his life but then fell in love with Amy
- While You Were Sleeping - slowly falling in love with Jack even though she was pining for Peter first
- Bridget Jones Diary - pining for her boss Daniel, but falling for Mark Darcy
