2022.01.16 16:09 hell-schwarz Why do writers use this trope?
I'm talking about the "it was all a dream/ time gets turned back and only the Main Character(s) remember" trope.
I'm not talking about stories where the reversal of time is the goal, because in those stories the time reversal is already expected from the start. And of course, in most cases it gives you aditional problems. I'm not talking about a timetravel to fix a simple thing resulting in a huge butterfly effect either. I'm talking about those movies and stories where the start is almost exactly the same than the ending, with the majority of the plot never happening.
I won't mention any Titles here, since this would be a spoiler for most cases.
I get that sometimes it feels better that the MC learns something from their first life and is able to prevent the mistakes they made. This used to be the case in some Hollywood movies I watched around the 90s and 00s.
Still, there are a lot of stories where this ending feels cheap. Sometimes it's just too convenient, especially when there was no hint of this possibility at all before. In those cases you might have wasted 2-4 hours, depending on if it was a book or a movie.
But lately I've switched my interest to Comics and Webnovels, ongoing Series you might follow for a long time. In those cases readers spend years, sometimes decades with the story. And in the end the Main Character decides to turn back time, to the status quo of the very first chapter with only minor changes. In a lot of cases they turn back into the loser they were before but a little more confident. Sometimes they take a little of the knowledge they aquired with them. And in most cases the biggest threat from the first timeline got removed as well. But at what cost?
Why the hell would you do this as a writer? It means that everything you wrote for the past 5-10 years got reduced to nothing. All those meaningfull battles and character deaths, those sacrifices people had to make and relationships formed - everything gone. Most of the characters will never meet. They'll live, sure, but was this the only way to end this on a silver lining? Sometimes it's even framed as "MC making the ultimate sacrifice."
But it's not MC who makes the sacrifice. It's us, the readers.
To me that trope feels like an insult.
In an estimaded 99% of the cases I encountered this trope it feels bad.

2022.01.16 16:09 Swedra Exodia Farming deck for Legacy of The Duelist?
I've seen a bunch of different attempts at this, and I wonder which one is the best.
I was thinking something along the lines of Draw cards (and Makyura the Destructor to be able to use cards like Reckless Greed on first turn etc), my "only" requirement is for it to be impossible to brick (if that is even possible), or to only be able to brick if I get an ungodly first hand (Like 3 Reckless Greed + 2 Legacy of Yata-Garasu or something XD), I do not care if it is slow (Im fine with having to Reckless Greed + Pot + One Day of Peace + Pot of Duality + Upstart Goblin for like two minutes before I get a guaranteed win).
Is this possible?

2022.01.16 16:09 Taste-Specialist Looking for help on constant AFCI fuses tripping constantly.
I have a home constructed in 2019, and we are constantly tripping Eaton AFCI “blue” breakers.
I’ve replaced a few of the most problematic ones with good results, but others seemingly randomly trip for no known reason. I have had the power company out after noticed 122-123 volts on media power filters, and they say this is normal voltage.
I am not running undue amount of current, and I’m perplexed why this is a continued problem. This happens about once every few days, but last night had 5 separate fuses trip.
My electrician says they are just a problematic item, and that everything in the house looks good. Is there any underlying problems that you are aware of that might be a hidden cause?

2022.01.16 16:09 Ahneasten Question about Rise of the horde and Lord of the clans book.
Hello nerds! I have started reading the books and next in order is rise of the horde book. Now I have seen that there is an edition with both Rise of the Horde and Lord of the clans including some artworks. Now i have been wondering, while question might be silly, does this book contain...full book? As I thought that this perhaps doesn't contain everything as in regular book, but only parts of it? If so I will just this book with arts and full story rather than two books without arts. Thanks!

I absolutely thirst for knowledge to no end. The Kybalion was a major 🔑 in my spiritual Overstanding, and I'm looking for more obscure books in a similar vein of thinking. Also, does anyone have any resources on the Archons and how to expose them, or at the least recognize them?

My identity is that of a masked person. Also, wearing a mask isn't binary. There are always microscopic gaps in your mask, so you can never truly be fully wearing a mask. We're all on a spectrum of having a mask fully secured on our faces. And basically no one has one on 100%.

2022.01.16 16:09 littlemiss-moonlight How can I stop being so depressed? Please help.
I know this is long but please help me. I’m so desperate to get out this. It’s come to a point in which every single type of relationship in my life is being ruined. I have awesome friends who care about me, a family that supports me the way they can and an amazing boyfriend that tries his best to keep me happy. But recently I read a conversation one of my friends was having with his boss. Now, I know I shouldn’t have done that, but part of me thinks that he left the conversation open in front of me on purpose so that I could read it because he didn’t have the guts to tell me himself. It was basically about how he kept failing to do his job properly and him telling his boss that he has “someone he needs to take care of in order to prevent her from harming herself and that it’s taking a toll on a lot of his personal life”. It was very tough reading that. I didn’t know what to do but eventually we had a conversation in which he told me that as a matter of fact, yes. Taking care of me is becoming a burden, but that he will never stop helping me because he loves me. One time he also said (I don’t remember the context, but it really stuck with me and I haven’t felt the same about him or anything again), he said “You are broken. You were born broken. You came from a broken home. Just accept that. You can’t be fixed”. I didn’t know what to say in the moment so I just laughed it off. But that REALLY hurt me. Especially coming from him. I felt like he treated me as if I’m not trying to better myself at all. Which is not true. I really am trying. So hard.
I’m roommates with his sister, and the family basically adopted me. But it’s more than obvious that taking care of me is a huge burden to everyone. I keep going out just so that I leave my roommate alone. I literally don’t want to bother her. So I come up with any excuse to stay out of the house as long as possible. And when I am home I try to keep to myself because I know I’m not good company and my horrible thoughts don’t go away, which makes it very difficult to focus on anything. Not even a conversation. But none of my friends will hang out with me anymore. Not a single one. I don’t even get texts from them anymore. I do avoid talking about my issues when I’m with them. But I’ve noticed that all of them have been avoiding me so much lately. They won’t even have one-on-one conversations with me anymore (when the whole group gets together). And I even feel like whenever they find out I’m going to a gathering… they cancel because they don’t want to interact with me.
My boyfriend is currently abroad for 4 months, and that is extremely hard for me. He used to be my rock but now that he’s not in the country anymore I feel desperately alone (given that literally none of my friends want to hang out anymore). He is the sweetest, kindest person to me even though I’m a monster. But I now the relationship is falling apart solely because of me. He’s the kind of person that just wants to help and know that his loved ones are ok. But my living situation is… tough. I try not telling him everything that goes on in my life (now that he’s abroad bc I honestly don’t want him to worry) but eventually he finds out I’m not being truthful and forces the truth out me. Which is always sad. And it’s affecting the way we treat each other. About a week ago I asked him how he was doing and he told me that no so good because it makes him sad how shitty my situation is. That’s when it really hit me. So I’ve tried hiding the reality of my situation from him, but obviously he just ends up learning the truth.
Yesterday I was really going through it and told him that I feel like giving a step to the side (even though I REALLY dont want to) because I know for a fact that I’m not ideal for him. Which, in all honesty, is true. I’m beneath him, his family doesn’t approve of me, I’m a mess and it’s unfair that he has to deal with such a mess of a person when he actually deserves nothing but the best. He said he has to “think about it”. I really don’t want to break up with him. But I also know that I’m not good for him.
How do I stop being so depressed? It’s really affecting every relationship I have and I can’t deal with it anymore. There’s so much more to all this but it will literally be too long for a post. So I just want to know what to do to stop feeling this way. Because in all honesty; it’s taking every fiber of strength in my body to not attempt committing the-s-word again.
Please help me. I don’t want yet another relationship to end because of me.
