LilyPond n

LilyPond – Music notation for everyone: Download. Download. Downloads for LilyPond 2.20.0. Note: LilyPond is a text-based music engraver; it is more similar to a programming language than a graphical score editing program. Before downloading LilyPond, please read about our Text input. Lily Pond is a 2.3 mile out and back trail located near Brant Lake, New York that features a lake and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and nature trips. Lily Pond Creek Hunting Lodge is located in Northampton County, North Carolina. Northampton County is one of the top deer and turkey producing counties in NC and is tops for the number of bucks per square mile. LilyPond is the best music typesetter out there, but it's been difficult for me to use it in non-standard formats. With this, I can move elements in any position and resize them, I can use any typeface, and I am not restricted to pdf output. This is a PERFECT solution for me. Faidon Liambotis discovered that Lilypond, a program for typesetting sheet music, did not restrict the inclusion of Postscript and SVG commands when operating in safe mode, which could result in the execution of arbitrary code when rendering a typesheet file with embedded Postscript code. My name is Shirley. I am the founder of the small business LilyPond Vintage located in Elmsdale, Nova Scotia. I am a lover of everything old, chippy and vintage. I am passionate about interior design, vintage home decor, antiques and painting furniture. I have been refinishing furniture and decorating on a budget for over 20+ years. LilyPond is a powerful and flexible tool for engraving tasks of all kinds, for example classical music (like the example above by J.S. Bach), complex notation, early music, modern music, tablature, vocal music, lead sheets, educational materials, large orchestral projects, customized output, and even Schenker graphs. what’s happening at lilypond vintage We are very excited to co-host our 2nd Annual Outdoor Vintage Market to be held right here in Enfield. It will be located at a private residence at 449 Highway #2 in the heart of the community with 5 groomed acres along the historic Shubenacadie River. The LilyPond format is a plain text input format that is used by the GNU music typesetter LilyPond (www.lilypond.org). The python-ly package is Free Software, licensed under the GPL. This package is written by the Frescobaldi developers and is used extensively by the Frescobaldi project. The main author is Wilbert Berendsen. LilyPond formats music notation handling collisions, spacing and line-breaking completely automatically. As the input is text-based, it can also be integrated seamlessly with HTML and LaTeX documents.

2020.09.22 19:50 scramlington [FT] Over 60 DIYs [LF] Flower waterers, simple panels or critters

I've slowly amassed over 60 DIYs that I don't need or want. Perhaps there's one here that you would like?
I'm happy for people to come and grab what they want, but if you did want to help me out with any donations I am in need of a few fish/bugs to complete my list:
Fish:
Bugs:
I also have a flower patch in the far top left of my island which I would love if anybody would water!
Also any simple panels would be gratefully received.
Otherwise, come and grab what you want. I'm leaving my island open with the below code while I get on with some things over the next few hours, so I'll be AFK. I won't be reserving any items on the list. It's first come first served.
To make life easier, if you do come and take something can you please post below with what you took so other people can get an idea if the thing they want is still there.
Anyway, here's the Dodo Codo: 0C6H9

2020.09.19 05:48 RabidSushi Hey all! Just your teenager trying to survive and access new content, the problem is... I can't!

So grounded had its water update in august correct? I'm not sure if I'm wrong but for some reason I can't get any of the water content to show. No lily pads, no building in the corner of the pond, nothing living in the pond. Yet the bird is around (nothing I do phases it and can't attack it) and there are water fleas. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the game, and verified file integrity so I'm not sure what else to do.

All plants, unless stated otherwise, are grown submerged (except the floater plants of course) and in my own personal tanks and will usually be trimmings of the parent plants.

NURSERY GROWN PLANTS
The plants below are mostly emersed grown, so some of the plants might look different once they transition to their aquatic form. I have included pictures of what they look like now and what they should look like once transitioned if they are vastly different. They are currently being kept submerged in a tank with high lighting and co2 (although majority of these plants do not require co2, I use co2 to keep them healthy and to help them adapt to submerged conditions so they are less likely to melt during the transition). These plants are also kept with Pea Puffers and Assassin Snails so they are most likely snail free
each bunch is generally about 3-5 stems or more depending on the plant. Rotalas usually have 5-10 stems

2020.09.19 01:23 TAHaywood Richard "Quickdraw" McCallister: A Eulogy - Chapter 15

When the Tamani blew a hole in his ship, his friend, and his career, Richard McCallister called it quits. But when he gets word of another alien incursion, with his friend's family in the line of fire, he charges back into danger on the outskirts of settled space to yank them out of the maw.
That was his plan, anyway. But things don't usually go according to plan.
Cover Art
First Part
----------
Terra Prime. The pride of Solaran space. The jewel of TerraCorp. Good God, how we told stories about the place back on Earth. In the underbelly where we couldn’t hardly see the sky, the idea of a station floating out there among the stars seemed...unbelievable. Too good to be true. Little more than a dream.
I leaned forward, burying my face in my hands. Here I was, orbiting Sol again. A spitting distance from home -- and I was there, on Terra Prime. Me. If I’d have told people growing up, hell, they’d have called me crazy. They’d probably have tried to kick some sense back into me, truth be told.
But now that I was here, on the station, all I wanted to do...I just wanted to leave. I bit back a laugh, forcing myself to sit back and look at least something like a composed, mature human being.
We’d skipped into the system the night before, sailing straight for Terra Prime. Captain Taylor hadn’t been kidding about the higher-ups wanting to see the wreckage for themselves. The minute we’d docked, they’d cut most of us loose. Shore leave was a rare enough treat that no one had protested or argued. We’d scattered into the depths of the station, each looking for their own escape.
I leaned back, eyeing the extravagance of the station. Trees grew here and there across the grounds. Actual trees, rooted in soil with water sprinkled onto the gardens. Lights gleamed from every surface, until the whole place glowed. It was everything I could have hoped for.
But I could still see the burning colony, each and every time I closed my eyes. I knew that trying to drink it away wouldn’t help. Not unless I wanted to drink away more than just a few bad memories.
I stood, groaning, and started walking. I didn’t know where, really, but...I just needed some time to myself. Some time when I wasn’t surrounded by people who all had wants and needs and expectations. Hell, I even needed some time away from Clay, however much I loved the bastard. He’d try to help, but his way of ‘helping’ was mostly to distract me with work. Work wouldn’t help. Work was doing the opposite of helping, in fact. More and more, the questions were starting to take root in my mind every time I did the latest busywork task.
What the hell was I doing? Why was I even out there in the Dust? TerraCorp wasn’t running a charity, that much was for sure, so it wasn’t like they deserved my service for the good things they were up to. More and more it seemed like all I was going to do out there at the edge of Solaran space would be getting myself killed.
So why was I doing it? Why was I still there?
My feet carried me around and around, down narrow paths through the station’s gardens and through a market that burned with neon lights. What the hell did I even want? What was I after?
When I’d left Earth, I’d done so with single-minded focus. I needed to be somewhere different. Somewhere better. If I’d stayed in the underbelly, I’d have died, somewhere, somehow. Down in the mines, choking on the grit of a cave-in. Up in the pubs, drinking away my last liver cell. Or out in the streets, dosing out in an alley. Forgotten.
I swallowed. I’d wanted more. But...had I found it, yet? Here I was, running errands and ferrying colonists like a damn shuttle pilot. And now we’d come within an inch of getting blown across the system by the Tamani. The colony hadn’t been as lucky as us -- but next time, our positions could just as easily be reversed.
Was this where I was supposed to be?
A set of stairs appeared in front of my feet. I stopped. And then I looked up.
The gleaming, pristine front of the TerraCorp headquarters glittered back down at me. I stared. My gut churned, twisting painfully.
But I lifted my foot, starting to climb toward the rows of service booths lining the side wall.
I should keep moving forward. I needed to keep moving forward. I hadn’t found my answer yet, the place I could truly feel...satisfied. Alive. Whatever it was I was looking for. My record was pristine. No one could find fault with the work I’d done in TerraCorp since I’d entered. I had options.
And if I couldn’t find the place I needed on the Rheasilvia, then maybe it was time to take the next step.
The screen shimmered at my touch, coming alive with the classic TC logo. “State your name,” it said in a pleasant, light woman’s voice.
“Richard McCallister,” I said. My throat ached, like I’d spent the whole day screaming.
I wasn’t doing anything, I told myself. I was just looking. I was researching.
That was all.
“Hello, Richard,” the computer said. Somehow, it even managed to sound happy about it. “How may I help you today?”
I smiled, swallowing past the lump that’d appeared in my throat.
“Show me which ships are currently accepting transfers.”
----
McCallister strode down the stairs of Solovei’s city hall. Already, his head pounded with a newly-born headache.
Once, just once, it would be nice if anyone listened. Alternatively, he’d settle for Julian not just looking at him anytime a soul asked a question. He got it. Really, he did. No one knew what was happening, and so they turned to him as the person who might.
Only this wasn’t his damn colony. McCallister ground his teeth together, letting his breath hiss out between his teeth. He didn’t have all the answers for them.
“Whatever,” he muttered under his breath. “It’ll be fine. It’ll work out.” It always did. They just had to get through the next week, and everything else would fall into place.
Easier said than done. His steps slowed as he looked up -- and saw half of Soloveii looking back at him. Some were subtle. Others, not so much.
Perfect. His newfound celebrity status had arrived along with the Tamani drones, much to his irritation. Having everyone ogling him as he went about his business was not his idea of a good time.
But there were upsides. A grim smile toyed at his lips. Ever since his confrontation with Mr. Mineowner in the pub, the still-unnamed colony ship had been swarming with technicians from the mining complex -- men and women who were either skilled enough to help with the repairs, or strong enough to assist those who were.
They were getting close. They were getting damn close. But now, with the memory of the drones flying over Solovei’s prairies still burned into his retinas, he knew that might not be enough. Close only counted for horseshoes and hand grenades.
So be it. He needed to get back to the ship. It’d been only a few minutes before that Reid had called him, begging for help -- and the poor man had sounded so woefully pathetic that McCallister hadn’t had the heart to tell him no. They’d take a look at the pressure-assist lifts and then-
“Rick!”
McCallister slowed, already turning. The few colonists who’d been brave enough to try for his first name had rather quickly been shown the error of their ways -- which meant there was a very, very short list of possibilities for the speaker.
Sure enough, it was Kara who pushed her way through the steadily-building crowd, one arm raised. She wasn’t smiling, though. She didn’t look distressed, he noted, but...there was a tightness to her expression. A tension.
His plans for the ship abandoned, he elbowed a path through the masses. “Kara,” he said when he was close enough, raising his voice a little. “What’s wrong? Did something happen? Are you-”
“I’m fine,” she said, waving a hand. “Nothing like that. I just…”
She stopped, her eyes falling into shadow, and McCallister finally eased his way up alongside her. “What?”
Kara shook her head. She’d pulled her dark hair back into a messy bun, streaked with dust and sweat. “I’ve got Quinn ferrying parts for some of Jason’s boys, in the ship. But…”
“Kara.”
Finally, she turned away, making a tiny, pained noise. “I haven’t seen Ada all morning. Normally she’s...she’s somewhere nearby. But today...nothing.”
“Oh.” McCallister scuffed a boot against the ground, buying his mind time to work. “And...that’s unusual?”
“Didn’t I just say that?”
“You could talk to Lily,” McCallister said. “Send Reid or Clark out looking for her. I’m sure they’d-”
“I don’t want to bother them just yet,” Kara said, a petulant note entering her voice. “This is probably- I’m sure it’s nothing. She was born here. She knows the safe places and the dangerous one. Not a soul would hurt her. So...I know she’s fine, and there’s no need to make a big event out of this. But-”
“But you don’t know where she is.” And with an alien invasion looming at any given moment...McCallister could understand all too well why Kara was worried.
He was gratified to see her nod, ever so slightly. “Yeah. I just- I’d feel better having her somewhere I can see. That doesn’t mean I want to turn this into a manhunt.” Her eyes met his. “I’d do it myself, but...I’ve got my hands full looking after the workers. I’m sorry to ask it, Rick. I know you’re so busy. But-”
“I get it.” He lifted his flesh-and-blood hand, rubbing at his temple. Damn it, he really was too busy to deal with this. There was a laundry list of tasks yet to be done that stretched longer than his arm, and...well, he hadn’t been entirely impressed by some of the work Jason’s mechanics had done. He’d rather be somewhere he could keep a very, very close eye on them.
But, Kara was worried. And Ada was out there...somewhere. She was probably safe, but that didn’t mean wandering around was smart, either.
Begrudgingly, McCallister nodded. “I’ll look for her, Kara. I’ll head out right now.”
The surge of relief that washed over Kara’s face before she locked it back into a carefully-neutral mask was nearly painful. “Thanks,” she said, smiling faintly. “She’s probably- I know she likes to get out of town. She’s probably just beyond the borders. Somewhere.”
“I’ll look.” He offered her a tiny wave, already lifting his pad as he turned away. Her murmured thanks were swallowed up by the crowds.
McCallister sighed, pushing his way through toward one of the town’s exits, and hit a button on the comm panel.
A moment of hold -- and then the line clicked open. “Hey,” Reid said. “McCallister. Are you coming? I’m about ready to open up the-”
“Something came up,” McCallister said. “I’ll be over as soon as I can, but...yeah. Not just yet.”
“Wait, what?” Reid said, his voice pitching up. “W-What do you mean? I need your help to-”
“You’ve done an overhaul like this a dozen times already so far,” McCallister said, swallowing a chuckle. “You’re fine. You don’t need my help, and I don’t have time to hold your hand right now.”
“But...But I might-”
“If you’re worried, go find Wyatt. Or one of the miners. I’m sure they’ll help.”
He heard Reid’s indrawn breath. There. Gauntlet thrown. The security officer hadn’t ever signed up for technical service, and he had a lot to learn still, but McCallister knew he wouldn’t stand around and let his pride be trampled into the dirt, either.
He’d rise to the challenge, or he’d crumple under the pressure. Either one. Best they figure that out now.
“Okay,” Reid said tightly. “Okay, I got it. Get here when you can.”
McCallister did laugh, then. “Right. If you get yourself in too deep, call-”
The line beeped, signalling the other party had disconnected. A snort burst from his gut as he glanced down to the pad, finding it blank. “Well, I’ll be,” he muttered, grinning. “There might be hope for the kid yet.”
The last of Solovei’s homes slipped past him as he tucked the pad back into an inner pocket of his coat. His nerves sharpened. Every fiber of his being screamed to stay wary, to stay alert. Outside the town there might be anything ready and waiting to lunge. Most planets had at least one predator more than willing to munch on a human, and traveling alone wasn’t all that wise.
Still, no one had mentioned any such beasts, and Kara seemed content enough to let her children wander unsupervised. If all else failed, he had his pistol on his hip -- freshly recharged after the fight with the drones.
Those initial worries ebbed away as McCallister strode down a narrow deerpath, little more than a trail between fields. The farther he got from Solovei’s town square, the more the roar of voices was swallowed up by the fields of corn and...and whatever it was they were growing, out in these parts. His knowledge of cops wasn’t exactly robust. But the quiet sank deeper and deeper, filling the world around him with a totally out-of-character peace.
The maps Julian had shown him passed before his eyes. If he kept walking this way, he’d come to Kara’s house. Eventually. After a fashion. It wasn’t the most straightforward route -- but, Kara had said that Ada liked being away from the bustle. You didn’t get that on the clear-cut road.
On and on he walked, all the while scanning the terrain around him. The fields lining either side of the trail were rich and well-tended, teeming with produce in greens and golds. Compared to the dusty wilderness farther outside the town, it was a veritable paradise. The path sloped downhill, meandering around a rocky outcropping and something that looked almost like a leafless tree before finally crossing a burbling creek.
Someone had laid a log over it, even though the creek wasn’t more than three or four feet wide. McCallister grinned, tugging his hat lower and peering at the grey-blue sky. Well, it was cold. Wouldn’t do to catch a chill. Planting his feet on the rickety ‘bridge’, he leapt across.
Step by step, he trudged out into the wilds, with Solovei becoming little more than a bur of shadows behind him. His gaze grew a little sharper with every step, peering out at the rocky hills and rolling cropfields. Down a little farther, a herd of quite-ordinary cows gathered where the creek passed through their pasture.
Despite his earlier confidence and his honest beliefs about Solovei’s safety, he was starting to harbor some worries of his own. How far could a teenage girl go? What sorts of trouble could she get into?
A relieved sigh slipped from his lips as he saw a slender, wiry figure seated alongside the creek, surrounded by the cattle. Adaline had a pad cradled in her lap and her feet in the water, her hair a curtain of dark strands that hid her face.
But he’d found her. Wheeling toward the gate in the pasture’s fenceline, McCallister trudged in.
The gate was old, it turned out, and creaked bad enough to wake the dead. When he settled the latch back into place and looked up, Ada was staring back at him.
“What?” she said, her voice flat.
Off to a hell of a start. McCallister crept closer, trying not to look like he was at all nervous. But, hell, this was Kara’s daughter, Clay’s daughter, and it was pretty damn clear she didn’t love him. Hearing her open with that tone to her words didn’t bode well for him.
“Your mother sent me,” he said, coming to a stop alongside a massive steer that paid him no mind. “She’s worried. Wondered where you went.”
“She’ll be fine,” Ada muttered, casting her eyes back down. “It’s not even dark yet.”
“It doesn’t have to be,” McCallister said mildly. “She’s still worried. Come on. Let’s go.”
“Go away.”
Ah. So this is what they meant when they said teenagers were a handful. McCallister frowned down at her. “I’m not playing. We’re wasting time. Get up.”
“I’ll head back to down in a few minutes.”
He snorted, giving a quick shake of his head. “Like hell. I’m not falling for that one. Put your damn shoes on.”
Her eyes snapped up to his at the profanity, as though he’d caught her off guard, but she didn’t budge. “Just leave me alone, will you?”
McCallister raised an eyebrow, sitting back on his heels. He didn’t say another word, he just...waited. She’d give in, sooner or later, if only to get him to go away and stop invading her quiet time.
Sure enough, before another minute had passed, she grimaced, slapping the pad down onto the thin layer of grass. “Asshole,” she muttered.
“Sometimes.” He watched, taking a step back, as she rose and slipped her feet into the sandals waiting on the bank. She glanced toward him, coming this close to following, but hesitated.
Her hand raised, reaching out until her fingertips pressed into the hide of the still-unbothered steer. “We’re...going to have to leave them behind, aren’t we?”
A leaden weight settled in McCallister’s chest. “I don’t…” He shook his head. “Probably.”
“What’s going to happen to them? The herds. Ours, and the rest.”
Nothing good. “It’s hard to say.”
“Maybe they’ll live,” Ada murmured. “There’s water here, and...a bit of food. Maybe they’ll make it.”
There wasn’t enough grass on the creek’s sides to sustain a herd of livestock without the colonist’s supplements and both of them knew it. McCallister only nodded, though, making a face. “Ah...yeah. We can open the gates, before we go. They’ll have...a fighting chance.” Probably not.
Although, who could say? Maybe the Tamani would have a taste for milk and beef. Maybe they’d keep the herds around, instead of burning them up with the rest of humanity’s remnants.
Ada only drooped, though, her hand falling clear of the cow’s side. “Who am I kidding,” she mumbled.
“Look, it’ll...it’ll be fine. Let’s just-”
“You did what mom asked,” Ada said, scowling at him. “I’ll be home soon. Good job. So why don’t you just leave?”
McCallister reached up, scratching at the fringe of hair peeking out from under his hat. “Well...we’re both going that way, aren’t we? I’ve got work to do. So we might as well both-”
“If you’re so busy and so important, don’t let me hold you up.” Her words could have frozen the skin right off him. “See you.”
He sighed. “Look, don’t be like that. I’m just trying to help.”
“No one asked you to help,” she muttered under her breath. “No one asked you to come at all.”
The words were soft enough that they’d probably been more of a knee-jerk reaction than an actual response to him. He flinched all the same.
Her cheeks reddened, just a little. “I-I mean, I just-”
“Your father asked me to come,” McCallister said, collecting himself and folding his arms. “So I did. I’m sorry it couldn’t be under better circumstances.”
The girl’s eyes flicked away, darkening further. “Dad’s dead. He never-”
“Every time he talked about you,” McCallister said. “Every time he told a story. Every time he showed me a picture of you and Quinn and your mother, he made it damn clear how much you meant to him.”
“But he-”
“Sure, he never actually said gee, Rick, I think you should go get my family out of the way of that alien invasion, that’d be sweet. You’re right. He didn’t.” He let his head fall to the side, a tiny grin twisting at his lips. “Don’t think he really needed to.”
Ada still wouldn’t meet his eyes -- but her scowl didn’t have quite the same intensity as it had moments before. “We still never-”
“Of course, I could’ve just shrugged and walked away,” McCallister said, chuckling a little. “Could’ve been all hell no, I’m a busy man with a busy life, I don’t have time for this.” He shrugged. “It was a little tempting. Especially after your mother threw a fit.”
Ada wrinkled her nose. “She does that.”
“She does. So, yeah. I did consider it.” He let his hands fall free again, sliding out from under his armpits. “But, I figured, if I just walked away and let all of you get wiped out, there’d be a surprise waiting for me when I finally got to the other side myself, in the form of your father with a baseball bat.” He balled up his fists, then lashed out, swinging like he had a club in his hands instead of empty air. “Don’t think your dad would appreciate the decision.”
The girl laughed. She bit the sound off a moment later, hiding her smile behind the heel of her palm, but McCallister grinned. Victory. “So come on,” he said, jerking his chin toward the colony. “Let’s get you back to your mom before she guts me.”
She groaned, but the last of the fight seemed to leave her. She leaned over, scooping up her pad, and then turned toward the gate.
McCallister waved her on, still smiling. There were still decent odds she’d turn tail and run, even when she seemed to have given up. She rolled her eyes, but walked out a step or two ahead of him.
It...wasn’t the way he’d come in. McCallister glanced back over his shoulder, eyeing the well-worn path through the fields, but...Ada seemed to know where she was going. If she was pulling his chain, he’d figure it out soon enough, likely.
She only hunched her shoulders higher, dipping her chin to her chest and pulling her worn jacket around her more closely as a breeze whistled through. McCallister took hold of his hat, still watching her.
The cattle slipped past, until at last the pasture vanished. Another creek, this time leading to a narrow, swampy pond. Tall, narrow plants that looked kind of like the pictures he’d seen of cattails grew all around one side.
He smiled wistfully. Really, Solovei was a lovely place. It might not be the balmy paradise he’d always wanted to find in a Dustworld planet, but it had a charm to it he couldn’t deny.
It was a pity.
Recognition flashed through his mind as they traipsed past another rocky cut, surrounded by heavily-irrigated fields, and came into view of another livestock herd. Beyond it waited a house -- a familiar house.
“At least you were being honest about going home,” he whispered, too quietly for her to hear.
She wasn’t even listening. She glanced to the house, then turned away, hurrying off down another path.
McCallister stiffened. “Hey- Adaline. You can’t-”
“Oh, shut up.” The words were little more than a mumble, no vehemence to them. McCallister frowned, but froze as he peered down the path she’d followed.
Another pond lay at the end - larger. Much larger. The town would need a lot of water for their irrigation, he reasoned. And a copse of those same treelike plants circled around one end.
A stone finger sat between the road and the trees, where it’d be square in view of the water and the forest and the fields beyond. It drew his eyes like a magnet, like a black hole.
McCallister had brought him home. It was the least he could do, the only thing he could offer as a thank you. As a final goodbye. It’d been a unique case, after all. Most of the victims of the Rheasilvia were lost to the void, but not...not with him. It’d have been wrong to leave a stranger to break the news to Kara. To abandon her to her grief entirely. He’d been too afraid to come back to Solovei II, after, no matter what promises he’d made to her that tear-filled night. He’d never returned to see what her and her family had made.
But he still recognized a gravestone when he saw it.
Ada went right up the path toward it, her steps slowing as she closed the gap. Finally, when she was right in front of the marker, she stopped. “It’s just like the herd, too. Isn’t it.”
McCallister swallowed. What else could he do? What could he say to make that better.
She reached out, lay her hand flat against the polished surface. “We’ve got to leave him here. Leave him behind.”
A thousand different things to say flashed through his mind. He could tell her that it’s what he would have wanted, or that he never really left. He could assure her that without a doubt, Clay would be watching over her no matter what corner of the galaxy she traveled.
None of that would do a damn to help. Not really, not then. All he’d be doing was trying to make himself feel better about things, not easing her pain. So McCallister just bit down on the words, keeping it all to himself. “I’m sorry,” was all he said, low and soft.
Her sigh drifted out over the field. “Me too,” she mumbled. “This sucks.”
He laughed. “Pretty much.”
Work was still piling up back in town, and he still had enough to keep him busy for a lifetime and a half. People were waiting on them. Kara would be back to worrying, with how much time had passed.
But he stood there, silently waiting, until at last Ada pulled away from the marker. She leaned down, running her fingers across the pebble-studded ground and fitting a wide, flat stone into the palm of her hand.
She stood again with a flip of black hair, stalking straight past him. “You’re still an ass,” she muttered.
“Don’t let your mom hear you talking like that.”
It was fleeting, but he saw a grin cross her face before fading.
Well, some days, that was about as good as you could ask for.
With a final glance back toward Clay’s grave and a quick, sharp nod, he followed Ada back toward town.

2020.09.18 15:00 yavanna12 Tips for getting new frog when leveling up

Hi all. Just wanted to share something I have been doing that has worked consistently well for finding new frogs for a new level.
Recently I leveled up to 24 and didn’t have any of the frogs. So I went to the pond with my level 23 frog. I jump up 12 lily pads. Then down 12 lily pads. I found that this number is far enough away that it resets the frogs/gifts that show up on the pads. I go up and down multiple times in a mostly straight line hitting the gift boxes and checking the frog breeds that show up. For my level the red gift boxes will have the higher level frogs.
I just keep going back and forth until I get the frog I’m looking for. Last night took me about 6 minutes to find a new level 24 frog.
Then once I find a new frog. I mature it and tame it once delivered. Then I race it to get the remaining frogs I need. To win a race make sure your frog is 100% happy. Then take note of the meters of the race at the beginning. At exactly the halfway point give your frog a potion. I’ve only lost once doing this method.
Hope this helps some of you.

2020.09.17 22:21 Cereborn Update on Hecate's Hearth

This is just another friendly news bulletin to let everyone know what's happening at Lower Duck Pond's very best organic product, holistic wellness, and basic-intermediate wicca supplies store!
1) Lennon's semi-retirement party is happening right now! So please stop by Hecate's Hearth before we close at 6 pm to have some cake and wish her well.
2) We have some new additions to the Hecate's Hearth family! First of all, I'm very happy to announce that LDP's favourite teenage car-dealer, Jeremy Whinger, will be working for us now! However, I'm very sad to say that after his car accident last night Jeremy is still recovering in hospital. We look forward to having him work with us when he's all better, but in the meantime, may the Goddess bear him gently and grant him a swift recovery.
We have also hired another part-time employee. Bella Wren is a student at Lower Duck Pond University, and a new member of our Witch's Circle. She is quite an enthusiastic worker, and very knowledgeable about all our witchcraft-related products. Welcome aboard, Bella!
3) As of this week, Hecate's Hearth is now selling board games! I'm also planning on having weekly community board game sessions in our multipurpose room on Sunday afternoons. Our inaugural Sunday game will be Betrayal in the House on the Hill.
4) This is a reminder that Hecate's Hearth does not endorse, or in any way stand behind our homeopathic products. I never wanted to offer it to begin with, but Star Lily insists on keeping us stocked because, in her words, "If we don't sell jars of water to idiots, then we're just leaving money on the table." Every time I try to remove it, the store is inundated asking me when the homeopathy will be back in, and that it's irresponsible of me not to carry essential medical supplies in a time of crisis. For the last time, Star Lily literally fills jars with water, puts exactly four drops of 7-Up in each one, and then puts a fancy calligraphic label on it. I have big red warning signs plastered all over the homeopathy display telling people exactly that, but customers just wink at me and mutter about "Big Pharma". Anyway, I look forward to the day when capitalism crumbles into dust, but in the meantime I have to use the tools available to me to serve the greater good. So the profits from the 7-Up water have helped pay for a lot of the Hecate's Hearth Homeful shelter (I will make an announcement about that once it's completed).
5) I'm naming my two little fox cubs as Hecate's Hearth's official mascots. I adopted them from Luna's parents a month ago. They are adorable red fox cubs with mysterious star and moon markings on their bellies. So obviously they are going to fit right in. I've named them McCloud and Mulder, and they are best friends.
6) Finally, at 8:15 tonight (following nude hot yoga) we will be having a Wicca prayer vigil for Luna, who is in the hospital recovering from burns after last night's car accident. I'm putting together a gift basket to take over to her tomorrow morning, and anyone is welcome to contribute.

2020.09.17 20:58 AnonAmost In-ground Pool to Pond Conversion

In-ground Pool to Pond Conversion
Hi all, posting this (with comments this time) on behalf of my husband who will respond in the comments:

Circa Early July

Bio-Filtration Set-up

Plant Life
Long story short, we have an aging 13.5K gallon in-ground gunite pool that was in need of some farily costly repairs. The pandemic has left us reluctant to spend the amount of money necessary to re-vamp the pool but also with a little too much time to spare. That said, the pool is now an outdoor oasis filled with koi, goldfish, 2 turtles, some neighborhood frogs, cattails, lilies, elephant ear, hyacinth, and primrose. (Wife calls it “The Pondemic”) It’s kidney shaped, roughly 33’L x 12W’. Center is the deepest point (6ft) sloping to shallower ends( ~3ft) on either side. I laid one yard of small/medium river rock, one yard of brick pavers, ~1/2 yard of larger limestone pieces, and the water level rests roughly at the halfway point. Factoring for displacement, I estimate the pond contains +/- 6K gallons of water. My filtration system is comprised of a 2600gal/hr pump, submerged in a milk crate, wrapped in polyester batting, and positioned on bricks functioning as risers. The water feeds through two homemade bio-filters: ~45gal trashcans layered bottom to top with gravel, lava rock, and pea-gravel respectively. At times I add a layer of polyester batting for additional filtration. The batting /rock filter combo seems to be working as they get dirty fairly quickly. I have an additional pump (1000gal/hour, also in a milk crate, wrapped in batting) that does not feed to the filters and is used strictly for circulation. My nitrates and ammonia levels have remained at 0 since the conversion back in June. The PH remains steady at 8-8.5. There are at least 30 koi and goldfish and probably way too many minnows. Most of the koi and goldfish are in the 6” range but there are 6-8 koi in the 10-18” size range. They all eat every day and seem happy and healthy. The only product I use is Nualgi at 6mL dose per week. The water is brown and not very clear. It is filled with organic mattemuck? I don’t know if it’s fish waste, dead algae, or something from the diatom blooms. (I’ve read that too much Nualgi will cause diatom blooms that are brown and I do believe I added too much in the beginning.) I’ve adjusted the dosage up and down a little but I can’t get seem to get better results than my current color and clarity. The fish, water, and plant life all seem healthy so I’m scared to deviate too much and I don’t want to add filtration capacity without making suer that’s the actual issue. I’m on the verge of a damn cool pond if I could just get some better coloclarity to justify putting a little more money into aesthetics (hiding the exposed walls and the filtration set-up). Posting here in hopes that someone with more experience or expertise might be willing to provide me with advice/tips/tricks to improve the water clarity. TIA

2020.09.15 10:52 Livemobile88 Introducing new slot Water Dragons Slots by Pussy888 2020 Malaysia Slot Game

Water Dragons is a 5-reel/30-payline slot game brought to you by Pussy888 , an eminent online video slot designer. The game depends on a Japanese subject which is plainly spoken to in the images, setting, and exuberant ambient melodies that is everpresent in the game. Dive into this game and appreciate wilds, dissipates, and free twists that are accessible around each turn. The game loads quick and plays well on low Internet data transmission. You may appreciate playing this Pussy888 slot on all PCs including Windows, Mac and Linux controlled PCs. The game was initially a slot found in blocks and mortar gambling clubs yet was created for online play in late 2013.

Travel to Japan

The rich and lovely illustrations depict a Japanese topic with Pussy888 images on reels, for example, Pond Plants, Koi Carps, Water Lilies, Dragonflies, Pearls, Bonsai Trees, and the Water Dragons Logo. The subject is amazingly professional and it is made surprisingly better with the calming Japanese music that constantly plays out of sight. The illustrations are balanced and you truly can't request more in a slot of this bore. The two principle images that you should look out for are the Pearls and the Water Dragons. The Water Dragons Logo is the wild image and substitutes all different images on the reels, aside from the Pearl, which is the dissipate image and your pass to the Free Spins reward round. Extra wilds are added to the reels during the Free Spins reward to make your play much all the more intriguing and fulfilling.

2020.09.13 23:53 TAHaywood [Richard "Quickdraw" McCallister: A Eulogy][Derby] Chapter 15 - Lost moments

When the Tamani blew a hole in his ship, his friend, and his career, Richard McCallister called it quits. But when he gets word of another alien incursion, with his friend's family in the line of fire, he charges back into danger on the outskirts of settled space to yank them out of the maw.
That was his plan, anyway. But things don't usually go according to plan.

First Part
----------
Terra Prime. The pride of Solaran space. The jewel of TerraCorp. Good God, how we told stories about the place back on Earth. In the underbelly where we couldn’t hardly see the sky, the idea of a station floating out there among the stars seemed...unbelievable. Too good to be true. Little more than a dream.
I leaned forward, burying my face in my hands. Here I was, orbiting Sol again. A spitting distance from home -- and I was there, on Terra Prime. Me. If I’d have told people growing up, hell, they’d have called me crazy. They’d probably have tried to kick some sense back into me, truth be told.
But now that I was here, on the station, all I wanted to do...I just wanted to leave. I bit back a laugh, forcing myself to sit back and look at least something like a composed, mature human being.
We’d skipped into the system the night before, sailing straight for Terra Prime. Captain Taylor hadn’t been kidding about the higher-ups wanting to see the wreckage for themselves. The minute we’d docked, they’d cut most of us loose. Shore leave was a rare enough treat that no one had protested or argued. We’d scattered into the depths of the station, each looking for their own escape.
I leaned back, eyeing the extravagance of the station. Trees grew here and there across the grounds. Actual trees, rooted in soil with water sprinkled onto the gardens. Lights gleamed from every surface, until the whole place glowed. It was everything I could have hoped for.
But I could still see the burning colony, each and every time I closed my eyes. I knew that trying to drink it away wouldn’t help. Not unless I wanted to drink away more than just a few bad memories.
I stood, groaning, and started walking. I didn’t know where, really, but...I just needed some time to myself. Some time when I wasn’t surrounded by people who all had wants and needs and expectations. Hell, I even needed some time away from Clay, however much I loved the bastard. He’d try to help, but his way of ‘helping’ was mostly to distract me with work. Work wouldn’t help. Work was doing the opposite of helping, in fact. More and more, the questions were starting to take root in my mind every time I did the latest busywork task.
What the hell was I doing? Why was I even out there in the Dust? TerraCorp wasn’t running a charity, that much was for sure, so it wasn’t like they deserved my service for the good things they were up to. More and more it seemed like all I was going to do out there at the edge of Solaran space would be getting myself killed.
So why was I doing it? Why was I still there?
My feet carried me around and around, down narrow paths through the station’s gardens and through a market that burned with neon lights. What the hell did I even want? What was I after?
When I’d left Earth, I’d done so with single-minded focus. I needed to be somewhere different. Somewhere better. If I’d stayed in the underbelly, I’d have died, somewhere, somehow. Down in the mines, choking on the grit of a cave-in. Up in the pubs, drinking away my last liver cell. Or out in the streets, dosing out in an alley. Forgotten.
I swallowed. I’d wanted more. But...had I found it, yet? Here I was, running errands and ferrying colonists like a damn shuttle pilot. And now we’d come within an inch of getting blown across the system by the Tamani. The colony hadn’t been as lucky as us -- but next time, our positions could just as easily be reversed.
Was this where I was supposed to be?
A set of stairs appeared in front of my feet. I stopped. And then I looked up.
The gleaming, pristine front of the TerraCorp headquarters glittered back down at me. I stared. My gut churned, twisting painfully.
But I lifted my foot, starting to climb toward the rows of service booths lining the side wall.
I should keep moving forward. I needed to keep moving forward. I hadn’t found my answer yet, the place I could truly feel...satisfied. Alive. Whatever it was I was looking for. My record was pristine. No one could find fault with the work I’d done in TerraCorp since I’d entered. I had options.
And if I couldn’t find the place I needed on the Rheasilvia, then maybe it was time to take the next step.
The screen shimmered at my touch, coming alive with the classic TC logo. “State your name,” it said in a pleasant, light woman’s voice.
“Richard McCallister,” I said. My throat ached, like I’d spent the whole day screaming.
I wasn’t doing anything, I told myself. I was just looking. I was researching.
That was all.
“Hello, Richard,” the computer said. Somehow, it even managed to sound happy about it. “How may I help you today?”
I smiled, swallowing past the lump that’d appeared in my throat.
“Show me which ships are currently accepting transfers.”
----
McCallister strode down the stairs of Solovei’s city hall. Already, his head pounded with a newly-born headache.
Once, just once, it would be nice if anyone listened. Alternatively, he’d settle for Julian not just looking at him anytime a soul asked a question. He got it. Really, he did. No one knew what was happening, and so they turned to him as the person who might.
Only this wasn’t his damn colony. McCallister ground his teeth together, letting his breath hiss out between his teeth. He didn’t have all the answers for them.
“Whatever,” he muttered under his breath. “It’ll be fine. It’ll work out.” It always did. They just had to get through the next week, and everything else would fall into place.
Easier said than done. His steps slowed as he looked up -- and saw half of Soloveii looking back at him. Some were subtle. Others, not so much.
Perfect. His newfound celebrity status had arrived along with the Tamani drones, much to his irritation. Having everyone ogling him as he went about his business was not his idea of a good time.
But there were upsides. A grim smile toyed at his lips. Ever since his confrontation with Mr. Mineowner in the pub, the still-unnamed colony ship had been swarming with technicians from the mining complex -- men and women who were either skilled enough to help with the repairs, or strong enough to assist those who were.
They were getting close. They were getting damn close. But now, with the memory of the drones flying over Solovei’s prairies still burned into his retinas, he knew that might not be enough. Close only counted for horseshoes and hand grenades.
So be it. He needed to get back to the ship. It’d been only a few minutes before that Reid had called him, begging for help -- and the poor man had sounded so woefully pathetic that McCallister hadn’t had the heart to tell him no. They’d take a look at the pressure-assist lifts and then-
“Rick!”
McCallister slowed, already turning. The few colonists who’d been brave enough to try for his first name had rather quickly been shown the error of their ways -- which meant there was a very, very short list of possibilities for the speaker.
Sure enough, it was Kara who pushed her way through the steadily-building crowd, one arm raised. She wasn’t smiling, though. She didn’t look distressed, he noted, but...there was a tightness to her expression. A tension.
His plans for the ship abandoned, he elbowed a path through the masses. “Kara,” he said when he was close enough, raising his voice a little. “What’s wrong? Did something happen? Are you-”
“I’m fine,” she said, waving a hand. “Nothing like that. I just…”
She stopped, her eyes falling into shadow, and McCallister finally eased his way up alongside her. “What?”
Kara shook her head. She’d pulled her dark hair back into a messy bun, streaked with dust and sweat. “I’ve got Quinn ferrying parts for some of Jason’s boys, in the ship. But…”
“Kara.”
Finally, she turned away, making a tiny, pained noise. “I haven’t seen Ada all morning. Normally she’s...she’s somewhere nearby. But today...nothing.”
“Oh.” McCallister scuffed a boot against the ground, buying his mind time to work. “And...that’s unusual?”
“Didn’t I just say that?”
“You could talk to Lily,” McCallister said. “Send Reid or Clark out looking for her. I’m sure they’d-”
“I don’t want to bother them just yet,” Kara said, a petulant note entering her voice. “This is probably- I’m sure it’s nothing. She was born here. She knows the safe places and the dangerous one. Not a soul would hurt her. So...I know she’s fine, and there’s no need to make a big event out of this. But-”
“But you don’t know where she is.” And with an alien invasion looming at any given moment...McCallister could understand all too well why Kara was worried.
He was gratified to see her nod, ever so slightly. “Yeah. I just- I’d feel better having her somewhere I can see. That doesn’t mean I want to turn this into a manhunt.” Her eyes met his. “I’d do it myself, but...I’ve got my hands full looking after the workers. I’m sorry to ask it, Rick. I know you’re so busy. But-”
“I get it.” He lifted his flesh-and-blood hand, rubbing at his temple. Damn it, he really was too busy to deal with this. There was a laundry list of tasks yet to be done that stretched longer than his arm, and...well, he hadn’t been entirely impressed by some of the work Jason’s mechanics had done. He’d rather be somewhere he could keep a very, very close eye on them.
But, Kara was worried. And Ada was out there...somewhere. She was probably safe, but that didn’t mean wandering around was smart, either.
Begrudgingly, McCallister nodded. “I’ll look for her, Kara. I’ll head out right now.”
The surge of relief that washed over Kara’s face before she locked it back into a carefully-neutral mask was nearly painful. “Thanks,” she said, smiling faintly. “She’s probably- I know she likes to get out of town. She’s probably just beyond the borders. Somewhere.”
“I’ll look.” He offered her a tiny wave, already lifting his pad as he turned away. Her murmured thanks were swallowed up by the crowds.
McCallister sighed, pushing his way through toward one of the town’s exits, and hit a button on the comm panel.
A moment of hold -- and then the line clicked open. “Hey,” Reid said. “McCallister. Are you coming? I’m about ready to open up the-”
“Something came up,” McCallister said. “I’ll be over as soon as I can, but...yeah. Not just yet.”
“Wait, what?” Reid said, his voice pitching up. “W-What do you mean? I need your help to-”
“You’ve done an overhaul like this a dozen times already so far,” McCallister said, swallowing a chuckle. “You’re fine. You don’t need my help, and I don’t have time to hold your hand right now.”
“But...But I might-”
“If you’re worried, go find Wyatt. Or one of the miners. I’m sure they’ll help.”
He heard Reid’s indrawn breath. There. Gauntlet thrown. The security officer hadn’t ever signed up for technical service, and he had a lot to learn still, but McCallister knew he wouldn’t stand around and let his pride be trampled into the dirt, either.
He’d rise to the challenge, or he’d crumple under the pressure. Either one. Best they figure that out now.
“Okay,” Reid said tightly. “Okay, I got it. Get here when you can.”
McCallister did laugh, then. “Right. If you get yourself in too deep, call-”
The line beeped, signalling the other party had disconnected. A snort burst from his gut as he glanced down to the pad, finding it blank. “Well, I’ll be,” he muttered, grinning. “There might be hope for the kid yet.”
The last of Solovei’s homes slipped past him as he tucked the pad back into an inner pocket of his coat. His nerves sharpened. Every fiber of his being screamed to stay wary, to stay alert. Outside the town there might be anything ready and waiting to lunge. Most planets had at least one predator more than willing to munch on a human, and traveling alone wasn’t all that wise.
Still, no one had mentioned any such beasts, and Kara seemed content enough to let her children wander unsupervised. If all else failed, he had his pistol on his hip -- freshly recharged after the fight with the drones.
Those initial worries ebbed away as McCallister strode down a narrow deerpath, little more than a trail between fields. The farther he got from Solovei’s town square, the more the roar of voices was swallowed up by the fields of corn and...and whatever it was they were growing, out in these parts. His knowledge of cops wasn’t exactly robust. But the quiet sank deeper and deeper, filling the world around him with a totally out-of-character peace.
The maps Julian had shown him passed before his eyes. If he kept walking this way, he’d come to Kara’s house. Eventually. After a fashion. It wasn’t the most straightforward route -- but, Kara had said that Ada liked being away from the bustle. You didn’t get that on the clear-cut road.
On and on he walked, all the while scanning the terrain around him. The fields lining either side of the trail were rich and well-tended, teeming with produce in greens and golds. Compared to the dusty wilderness farther outside the town, it was a veritable paradise. The path sloped downhill, meandering around a rocky outcropping and something that looked almost like a leafless tree before finally crossing a burbling creek.
Someone had laid a log over it, even though the creek wasn’t more than three or four feet wide. McCallister grinned, tugging his hat lower and peering at the grey-blue sky. Well, it was cold. Wouldn’t do to catch a chill. Planting his feet on the rickety ‘bridge’, he leapt across.
Step by step, he trudged out into the wilds, with Solovei becoming little more than a bur of shadows behind him. His gaze grew a little sharper with every step, peering out at the rocky hills and rolling cropfields. Down a little farther, a herd of quite-ordinary cows gathered where the creek passed through their pasture.
Despite his earlier confidence and his honest beliefs about Solovei’s safety, he was starting to harbor some worries of his own. How far could a teenage girl go? What sorts of trouble could she get into?
A relieved sigh slipped from his lips as he saw a slender, wiry figure seated alongside the creek, surrounded by the cattle. Adaline had a pad cradled in her lap and her feet in the water, her hair a curtain of dark strands that hid her face.
But he’d found her. Wheeling toward the gate in the pasture’s fenceline, McCallister trudged in.
The gate was old, it turned out, and creaked bad enough to wake the dead. When he settled the latch back into place and looked up, Ada was staring back at him.
“What?” she said, her voice flat.
Off to a hell of a start. McCallister crept closer, trying not to look like he was at all nervous. But, hell, this was Kara’s daughter, Clay’s daughter, and it was pretty damn clear she didn’t love him. Hearing her open with that tone to her words didn’t bode well for him.
“Your mother sent me,” he said, coming to a stop alongside a massive steer that paid him no mind. “She’s worried. Wondered where you went.”
“She’ll be fine,” Ada muttered, casting her eyes back down. “It’s not even dark yet.”
“It doesn’t have to be,” McCallister said mildly. “She’s still worried. Come on. Let’s go.”
“Go away.”
Ah. So this is what they meant when they said teenagers were a handful. McCallister frowned down at her. “I’m not playing. We’re wasting time. Get up.”
“I’ll head back to down in a few minutes.”
He snorted, giving a quick shake of his head. “Like hell. I’m not falling for that one. Put your damn shoes on.”
Her eyes snapped up to his at the profanity, as though he’d caught her off guard, but she didn’t budge. “Just leave me alone, will you?”
McCallister raised an eyebrow, sitting back on his heels. He didn’t say another word, he just...waited. She’d give in, sooner or later, if only to get him to go away and stop invading her quiet time.
Sure enough, before another minute had passed, she grimaced, slapping the pad down onto the thin layer of grass. “Asshole,” she muttered.
“Sometimes.” He watched, taking a step back, as she rose and slipped her feet into the sandals waiting on the bank. She glanced toward him, coming this close to following, but hesitated.
Her hand raised, reaching out until her fingertips pressed into the hide of the still-unbothered steer. “We’re...going to have to leave them behind, aren’t we?”
A leaden weight settled in McCallister’s chest. “I don’t…” He shook his head. “Probably.”
“What’s going to happen to them? The herds. Ours, and the rest.”
Nothing good. “It’s hard to say.”
“Maybe they’ll live,” Ada murmured. “There’s water here, and...a bit of food. Maybe they’ll make it.”
There wasn’t enough grass on the creek’s sides to sustain a herd of livestock without the colonist’s supplements and both of them knew it. McCallister only nodded, though, making a face. “Ah...yeah. We can open the gates, before we go. They’ll have...a fighting chance.” Probably not.
Although, who could say? Maybe the Tamani would have a taste for milk and beef. Maybe they’d keep the herds around, instead of burning them up with the rest of humanity’s remnants.
Ada only drooped, though, her hand falling clear of the cow’s side. “Who am I kidding,” she mumbled.
“Look, it’ll...it’ll be fine. Let’s just-”
“You did what mom asked,” Ada said, scowling at him. “I’ll be home soon. Good job. So why don’t you just leave?”
McCallister reached up, scratching at the fringe of hair peeking out from under his hat. “Well...we’re both going that way, aren’t we? I’ve got work to do. So we might as well both-”
“If you’re so busy and so important, don’t let me hold you up.” Her words could have frozen the skin right off him. “See you.”
He sighed. “Look, don’t be like that. I’m just trying to help.”
“No one asked you to help,” she muttered under her breath. “No one asked you to come at all.”
The words were soft enough that they’d probably been more of a knee-jerk reaction than an actual response to him. He flinched all the same.
Her cheeks reddened, just a little. “I-I mean, I just-”
“Your father asked me to come,” McCallister said, collecting himself and folding his arms. “So I did. I’m sorry it couldn’t be under better circumstances.”
The girl’s eyes flicked away, darkening further. “Dad’s dead. He never-”
“Every time he talked about you,” McCallister said. “Every time he told a story. Every time he showed me a picture of you and Quinn and your mother, he made it damn clear how much you meant to him.”
“But he-”
“Sure, he never actually said gee, Rick, I think you should go get my family out of the way of that alien invasion, that’d be sweet. You’re right. He didn’t.” He let his head fall to the side, a tiny grin twisting at his lips. “Don’t think he really needed to.”
Ada still wouldn’t meet his eyes -- but her scowl didn’t have quite the same intensity as it had moments before. “We still never-”
“Of course, I could’ve just shrugged and walked away,” McCallister said, chuckling a little. “Could’ve been all hell no, I’m a busy man with a busy life, I don’t have time for this.” He shrugged. “It was a little tempting. Especially after your mother threw a fit.”
Ada wrinkled her nose. “She does that.”
“She does. So, yeah. I did consider it.” He let his hands fall free again, sliding out from under his armpits. “But, I figured, if I just walked away and let all of you get wiped out, there’d be a surprise waiting for me when I finally got to the other side myself, in the form of your father with a baseball bat.” He balled up his fists, then lashed out, swinging like he had a club in his hands instead of empty air. “Don’t think your dad would appreciate the decision.”
The girl laughed. She bit the sound off a moment later, hiding her smile behind the heel of her palm, but McCallister grinned. Victory. “So come on,” he said, jerking his chin toward the colony. “Let’s get you back to your mom before she guts me.”
She groaned, but the last of the fight seemed to leave her. She leaned over, scooping up her pad, and then turned toward the gate.
McCallister waved her on, still smiling. There were still decent odds she’d turn tail and run, even when she seemed to have given up. She rolled her eyes, but walked out a step or two ahead of him.
It...wasn’t the way he’d come in. McCallister glanced back over his shoulder, eyeing the well-worn path through the fields, but...Ada seemed to know where she was going. If she was pulling his chain, he’d figure it out soon enough, likely.
She only hunched her shoulders higher, dipping her chin to her chest and pulling her worn jacket around her more closely as a breeze whistled through. McCallister took hold of his hat, still watching her.
The cattle slipped past, until at last the pasture vanished. Another creek, this time leading to a narrow, swampy pond. Tall, narrow plants that looked kind of like the pictures he’d seen of cattails grew all around one side.
He smiled wistfully. Really, Solovei was a lovely place. It might not be the balmy paradise he’d always wanted to find in a Dustworld planet, but it had a charm to it he couldn’t deny.
It was a pity.
Recognition flashed through his mind as they traipsed past another rocky cut, surrounded by heavily-irrigated fields, and came into view of another livestock herd. Beyond it waited a house -- a familiar house.
“At least you were being honest about going home,” he whispered, too quietly for her to hear.
She wasn’t even listening. She glanced to the house, then turned away, hurrying off down another path.
McCallister stiffened. “Hey- Adaline. You can’t-”
“Oh, shut up.” The words were little more than a mumble, no vehemence to them. McCallister frowned, but froze as he peered down the path she’d followed.
Another pond lay at the end - larger. Much larger. The town would need a lot of water for their irrigation, he reasoned. And a copse of those same treelike plants circled around one end.
A stone finger sat between the road and the trees, where it’d be square in view of the water and the forest and the fields beyond. It drew his eyes like a magnet, like a black hole.
McCallister had brought him home. It was the least he could do, the only thing he could offer as a thank you. As a final goodbye. It’d been a unique case, after all. Most of the victims of the Rheasilvia were lost to the void, but not...not with him. It’d have been wrong to leave a stranger to break the news to Kara. To abandon her to her grief entirely. He’d been too afraid to come back to Solovei II, after, no matter what promises he’d made to her that tear-filled night. He’d never returned to see what her and her family had made.
But he still recognized a gravestone when he saw it.
Ada went right up the path toward it, her steps slowing as she closed the gap. Finally, when she was right in front of the marker, she stopped. “It’s just like the herd, too. Isn’t it.”
McCallister swallowed. What else could he do? What could he say to make that better.
She reached out, lay her hand flat against the polished surface. “We’ve got to leave him here. Leave him behind.”
A thousand different things to say flashed through his mind. He could tell her that it’s what he would have wanted, or that he never really left. He could assure her that without a doubt, Clay would be watching over her no matter what corner of the galaxy she traveled.
None of that would do a damn to help. Not really, not then. All he’d be doing was trying to make himself feel better about things, not easing her pain. So McCallister just bit down on the words, keeping it all to himself. “I’m sorry,” was all he said, low and soft.
Her sigh drifted out over the field. “Me too,” she mumbled. “This sucks.”
He laughed. “Pretty much.”
Work was still piling up back in town, and he still had enough to keep him busy for a lifetime and a half. People were waiting on them. Kara would be back to worrying, with how much time had passed.
But he stood there, silently waiting, until at last Ada pulled away from the marker. She leaned down, running her fingers across the pebble-studded ground and fitting a wide, flat stone into the palm of her hand.
She stood again with a flip of black hair, stalking straight past him. “You’re still an ass,” she muttered.
“Don’t let your mom hear you talking like that.”
It was fleeting, but he saw a grin cross her face before fading.
Well, some days, that was about as good as you could ask for.
With a final glance back toward Clay’s grave and a quick, sharp nod, he followed Ada back toward town.

2020.09.13 18:31 funkwallace Level 19 is just being rude

I've made it halfway up the XP bar to level 20 and haven't seen a single level 19. I've taken level 18s hopping in the pond, to the races, and searching in the lily pads but these level 19s are total Mean Girls. If someone could send just one, and I'll send you back my most expensive level 18, I could probably find the rest in races with it.
TIA, 2k2pq
