Episode 6-
the queens return to the workroom after Kami's elimination
Anthyy: Everybody, moment of silence for our sister.
🏁Anthyy CF: Kami just got sent home, and it really was worst case scenario. I love Sue, don't get me wrong! But Kami was probably my closest ally here. And with how shitty last week was for me, that just sealed it as the worst week so far.
Zodya: Congratulations to our winners! Really well deserved, you both did great. How does it feel?
Wren: I'll be honest, I was starting to doubt myself. On Season Six, I felt like I always had the opportunity to prove myself. Maybe it was by winning a challenge, or by lipsyncing.
Fleur: Shoutout to the bed!
Wren: As I was saying...I was able to prove myself as a competitor. But this time, it's felt a lot different. Let's be real, my track record wasn't great before this last challenge.
🏁Fleur CF: She says as if it's better now.
Wren: But I finally feel like I showed what I have, and lipsyncing again felt like my batteries being recharged.
Sue: You run on batteries? I thought that was just me...what a world!
🏁Wren CF: I'm feeling pumped right now. Micro saw me as the best of the week, it doesn't get any better than that. I'm taking this momentum and making it into as many wins as possible. Maybe I'm the new Greantee? I like the sound of that!
Steph: Has anyone else felt that way of questioning your place here?
Fleur: If not, a lot of you should.
Anthyy: I can't say I have. I'm in it to go all the way.
Morgs looks over at Anthyy, wondering if Anthyy had forgotten about their previous conversation during Untucked
🏁Morgs CF: It seems like Anthyy is out of the mindset of wanting to quit. Which is perfect! Losing Kami was a big hit to us, so it's important that Anthyy stays and keeps the focus on what really matters.
Zodya: Whorechata, what lipstick do you have tucked away?
Whorechata: Yikes, this is awkward.
Sue: Oh...
Whorechata: I chose Micro. It was the only decision that felt right to me!
Zodya: If you don't show us who you actually picked...
Whorechata: I also chose Kami. It really was nothing personal. She said she had the fire to stay, and I wanted to believe her. But I didn't see that fire in her the same way that I did with Sue. And girl, you know I wasn't about to send you home. Our history goes back too far for me to do that to you.
Sue: You can never know for certain, so I really appreciate this.
Whorechata: I got you.
🏁Blondie CF: The FDR queens definitely need to be broken up. Whorechata saving Sue proves that even if they don't have this crazy close relationship, that FDR bond is enough to influence a major decision. Next time I'm in the top, I have to go after one of them. Or multiple of them, why not!
The Next Day
the queens strut into the workroom, wearing coordinated outfits
🏁Morgs CF: It's a new day in the workroom, and the group is getting smaller and smaller. Next thing you know, it'll look like a bunch of fairies running around! Honey, I shrunk the kids!!
Wren: I want to start off the day by apologizing to Anthyy and Morgs for how I acted during the challenge. It wasn't cute, and I see that now. I don't know, it just felt like all the stress was finally getting to me, and I put so much pressure onto myself.
Morgs: In my heart, I should be mad at you. But you are also the prettiest lady I've ever seen, so I can't be mad! It's all good, for real.
Anthyy: Definitely.
🏁Anthyy CF: I can forgive Wren, but I won't forget. She's the reason I don't know if I want to be here anymore, and I can't let that go. I'm feeling better than I was before, but I'm still not in it all the way. I'm getting in my head about it, I don't know what I need to do to feel better about this.
the workroom door swings open and Micro walks in, wearing a sequin caftan with teased out curly hair
Micro: Hello hello queens! Who else cried themselves to sleep last night after that elimination? Just me? Okay, we love that! Anywho, it's time for your next challenge. All of you have one thing in common. Whether you got close to the prize, or went home too early, none of you got the crown on your original seasons. And I'm sure you'd all be inclined to say that you were robbed. Which is why your next challenge is a musical journey through the crushing feeling of defeat. Because what is a drag race without a little emotional exploitation?! Each of you will choose a song of your choice, and then select sixteen lines from that song. Using the rhythm of the song, you'll be rewriting the lyrics to tell the story of how you were eliminated. The songs you choose and the approach you take are totally up to you. Make it you, make it stand out, that's all that matters! Good luck, and I'll see you on the runway for the big premiere. Bye!
the queens scatter around the workroom in small clusters as they go over ideas
🏁Steph CF: For our challenge this week, we are taking part in "Robbed: The Musical". Using a song of our choice, we have to rewrite sixteen lines to tell the story of how we got sent home. If you saw Season Three, you know all too well that I had thoughts, feelings, and concerns about how my time there ended. My only concern here is how to squeeze all of these thoughts into just sixteen lines. I could do fifty, and still have more to say!
Whorechata: So, what am I supposed to do for this challenge? I never really got eliminated.
Sue: Right! I forgot about that. I guess you eliminated yourself.
Whorechata: How do I make that work for this challenge, that's the question.
🏁Whorechata CF: Everyone else has been eliminated, got the axe, got thrown to the curb. And then there's me. Luckily, I feel more confident with a verse challenge than I could for any other challenge. When I put my pen to paper, none of these queens can come close to me. But it's hard to reference your journey and elimination when you quit on the second episode. I'll make it work though, know that!
Blondie and Fleur have a heart to heart by the mirrors
Blondie: I know there's tension between us, and that might never change. But I want you to know that there's an olive branch from me to you.
Fleur: Why would I want a stick?
Blondie: I-, that's not what that means.
Fleur: Girl, I know.
Blondie: Where did things go wrong between us?
Fleur: We both want to be the top bitch. And we know that there isn't enough room in the spotlight for the both of us. For me? Absolutely. But you...yeah, no.
Blondie: I just don't get that. We have the same friends, we work the same shows. There's no reason to keep things between us so fractured.
Fleur: Maybe one day. But right now, I don't know if it's the right time.
Blondie: I'm fine with that. It doesn't need to be immediate, I just want to know that you're willing to get there eventually.
🏁Fleur CF: As much as it pains me to admit, Blondie and I do have a lot in common. There's just something about this competition that makes it hard for me to connect with people. Some call it competitive spirit, most just call it being a bitch. I'm not closing the door on a friendship between Blondie and I, but I'm not opening it either. Not yet at least.
Morgs and Anthyy style their wigs for the challenge as they go over last minute ideas
🏁Morgs CF: Anthyy is the one person here that I know I can trust. Seeing her win would make me so happy, and I know she feels the same about me winning.
Anthyy: Sister, what song are you doing for this?
Morgs: There are a few rap songs that I think I could do well with.
Anthyy: You always do well with those, that might be the perfect option!
Morgs: But then another part of me feels like that would just be a convenient way of ending up safe again. I'm questioning whether or not it makes sense to go with what I know, or if I'm in a spot where I have to take a risk.
Anthyy: I feel the same way. If you took a risk and it didn't work, do you think you would be able to convince people to keep you?
Morgs: That's the thing, I don't. I feel like you wouldn't send me home, but that's it. I can't trust anyone else to save me.
Anthyy: What's your riskier option?
Morgs: Aretha Franklin.
Anthyy: Byeeee!
Morgs: I know, I know! It's not what you'd expect from me.
Anthyy: And that's why it makes total sense. You need to believe in yourself. Give them the full Morgs fantasy, and they'll live!
Morgs: Ah, you convinced me! I'm doing Aretha.
Anthyy: Our top two moment incoming!
🏁Morgs CF: I feel like I have nothing to lose at this point. If I'm ever gonna take a risk, now's the time to do it. Pray for your girl, she needs a miracle right about now!
Runway
the lights flicker and an electric magenta light floods the runway as Micro struts down the center
Micro Episode 6 Look
Micro: Welcome back to the runway of Micro's Drag Race: All Stars! This week, the queens were tasked with rewriting a song to tell the story of how they lost their original season. And joining me on the judging panel tonight is not only an MDR legend, but a fantastic verse writer, and the winner of Micro's Drag Race vs The World, Jords!
Jords Guest Judging Look
Micro: Jords, thank you for being here!
Jords: Thank you, I'm so excited to crush some dreams.
Micro: How has life been since taking home the crown?
Jords: You know what they say, club, another club, bus, no sleep. Except this is on Discord, so not exactly like that, but you get the idea!
Micro: Are you ready to get started?
Jords: I told you I'm not staying in this corset for more than an hour, let's get to it!
Micro: Without further ado, here is "Robbed: The Musical"!
Robbed: The Musical
-------------------------
Micro: Category is..."Chain Reaction".
"Bad Juju" by Jujubee plays
Anthyy: When i heard the category was chains i got a bit scared cause first i had an idea to do a bad bitch look! But then i realized probably everyone is gonna do that! So my mind went to a diffrent thign! When i dont know what to do i always look for inspiration in my culture! PURR POLISH BITCH! In Poland, you can easily say that in the whole europe, knights were EVERYWHERE so tonight i decided to serve you a knight look HONEY i am drippinnggg in chains! From head to toe i am a silver sparkling dream! And i know miss micr loves them sparkles so i made sure she is BADAZZLED for the gods! I did a lil leg and a hip reveal so she can have her sexy moment! And ofc i am carrying a sword caue i am a fighter. I really liked going back to the more haute couture side of anthyy since reently i focused my looks much more on the drag side so this was a nice comeback! And you kno im a sucker for gowns!
Anthyy Look
Blondie: Tonight I am giving full shame and guilt. Every since I taken a break from my season, I realize I have a lot of internal thinking and shame of the things I did on my season. Giving up so easily when I know I was in the right for most of my arguments and being manipulated into thinking I'm the problem when you just wanted Greentree to win so y'all robbed me. Tonight I am wearing beautiful Thai silk fantasy and got this beautiful styled red hair and have it locked up and chained up all over my body. You want me to feel shame, well come unlock my chain, baby
Blondie Look
Fleur: Tonight I decided to fuse rich and affluence with sex and fornication and I have to admit, I am a HUGE fan of this result! I am feeling so fancy and so lush with all this gold and skin! Thank the lord that fashion tape exists because without that, who knows how these chains will stay perfectly in place. I am EATING. I am so happy to be wearing this look the one week in this competition, where I feel somewhat confident!
Fleur Look
Morgs: BAM, on the runway i'm coming out, skinny, beautiful, and a bad girl. this is a total different direction than morgetha franklin you saw during the challenge. i have some devily horns on too, obviously decked out with chains, matching the rest draped AWL over my body. i look stunning, i feel stunning, and if someone happened to wear this before i wore it better
Morgs Look
Steph: mama i am all chained up bc i am a crazy bitch who LOVES the chains. Bitch this is fashion and I want to show that I can be kinky and serve up some rich ho realness honey!!
Steph Look
Sue: Tonight I am serving you gothic bad ass biatch. She is a huntress on a mission to obliterate all the men who did her dirty.
Sue Look
Whorechata: Tonight on the runway I am representing what many conservative folk would say is “my culture”. I am giving orange is the New Mexican tonight mawma. She got the ball and chain and limping on this runway… but tbh that’s not a new thing for chata on the runway.
Whorechata Look
Wren: Trying to make my own runway this was a truly humbling experience, sometimes things dont go as planned and that’s ok. However, if I’m going to go with something I didn’t make myself I want to make sure it’s one of the best things you’ve ever seen. This look wowed me from the moment I first saw it and it is absolutely gorgeous, stunning, and conceptual. Zendaya truly devoured, as always.
Wren Look
Zodya: For this runway, I wanted to do something a little bit different. While most people would probably have the chains wrapped around their bodies or hanging off, I’m going for this chain pattern in this exquisite, high-fashion executive realness look. I feel extremely opulent in this moment, like I’m about to buy out a large company! And if you don’t like that? Chained to the walls of the company dungeon!!!
Zodya Look
Critiques
Micro: Thank you ladies. Tonight, you all really blew me away!
Jords: I need to echo that. AMAZING job on the stage tonight. You all did amazing and it will be very hard to be choosing the placements. Very honored and excited to be judging tonight!
Micro: So tonight, you will each be receiving critiques.
Micro: First up, Anthyy!
Jords: BESTIE! So excited to see how far you‘ve come after Season 1. For your look, this is definitely one of the looks I‘m liking the most. It‘s giving me very much warrior. You know those games we used to play back in the day in that castle and there was like a fighter holding you from entering the other room? Yeah, that‘s you in new edition. And for your Musical performance… you ate that. I think the song choice is very um… UNIQUE. Sorry, I don‘t really connect good things with that name. Anyway, I found your lyrics smart and memorable, I kinda got stuck with what parts you were relating to, but then I got the hang of it and then loved it even more.
Micro: Anthyy baby, you might have just outwrote Beyoncé. Well, I don’t know if she writes her own stuff but if she does, you did that! I thought the flow was amazing, and you had so many call backs to your original season, and such a smart song choice for this Unieke moment! My one critique would be that it felt like certain lines were condensed in a way that really fit the flow, but weakened the line itself by removing certain little transition words. On the runway, this is sensational. I love the hip cutouts and the shoulder pieces. One of my favorite looks from you ever!
Micro: Next, Blondie!
Jords: Hey Blondie! On the look, I like how the chains connect the whole look. It starts from your foot to the head and roses, so I really found that cool. Your musical performance, I think you started really strong. The song was a little something else from what the others have presented I think, you served a lot of comedy. There‘s some little, very little things I would change, but overall I think you did a good job.
Micro: Imma be so real, my expectations for what you could do this week were a little low. You weren’t exactly a rapstress on Season Six, but this was so well done. This song has a lot of little moments within it that you were able to capitalize on. And it had splashes of humor and controversy that you’re known so well for. On the runway, I think this look is beautiful, and the commentary gagged me a bit. I thought you were in your apology era but then you went right back to serving cunt, we love to see it. Great night for you.
Micro: Next up, Fleur!
Jords: Hey Fleur! With this runway look, you are so rich and you are representing the girls. It just ate. You have clear taste, we been knew. Your musical verse. I‘ll say it was a good attempt. It was a verse that was really deep, but it wasn‘t that special for me.
Micro: The vibe of this song has such a dark and melancholy feel to it, which worked so well for this challenge, and the feelings of reliving that loss. It really told the journey of who you were back on Season One, and then how you had that redemption moment on Season Four, but ultimately falling short of the crown. All the boxes are checked, this was a great performance. On the runway, this connects with me so hardcore. The draped chain look, the big headpiece and sculpted hair, the fur coat, it’s a dream look for me. For me, your best week so far!
Micro: Next, Morgs!
Jords: Morgs! I‘m very impressed by you. This chains look is just so advanced and so beautiful. You went full force. As well as in the musical. I imagined it very well, you performing with that song playing. I like what you had brought tonight.
Micro: Morgs, you are such an incredible writer, and I could tell that this week was a moment for you to break out of that safe streak and really shine. First off, the song choice was amazing. And you stayed true to what the challenge asked for with the references to your season and elimination, not going too far into that bitch track territory. You played off of all the subtleties and syllables of the original to pack this full of great content. On the runway, this is a gorgeous look. Having this cage element made of chains, it’s a clever and high fashion moment.
Micro: Next up, Steph!
Jords: Steph, Steph, Steph. Your runway with the chains, chains everywhere! I like it. But your verse… it didn‘t stick out to me, I‘m sorry. It didn‘t fullfill my expectations, I got the hang of what you were trying to do, but I didn‘t really get through the whole performance without asking myself „Why“ like, 3 times.
Micro: Steph, you made me so proud this week!! I know your elimination on Season Three wasn’t the best time for you, but I do think it has pushed you in this competition to perform at a really elite level. You sold the vibe and the fantasy of what that challenge was and your thought process through your elimination. There’s not much else I can really say, you killed it. If I have to nitpick, I’d say that the end loses steam a little bit, but only because the first half is so strong. On the runway, I think this is maybe the best you’ve looked! It’s simple but executed flawlessly. Great work.
Micro: Next up, Sue!
Jords: Moving on to Sue! Your chains look, it was kind of different and it had something that made me memorize it well. Your performance… I kind of found it hard to keep up. It was a good song choice, I did see you performing it, don‘t worry. But I think you could have done even more.
Micro: Sue, let me start off with this song choice. Choosing the song you were eliminated on during Season Four, how did nobody else think to do that?! It was a really smart move. I can tell you were comfortable with this challenge, because every line had that natural flow and swagger to it. The lyrics were so true to you and your spirit, and the rhythm of the song kind of played into that feeling of running away from elimination and trying to save yourself. And on the runway, this is amazing. I love the movement that the chains bring in, and this skeletal corset vibe is next level. I’m not the biggest fan of the purple veil, but this is a great look.
Micro: Next, Whorechata Grande!
Jords: Hey, Whorechata! This look looks like it‘s self-drawn. I think the story behind it is very smart and very easy to think about what it could mean. Perfect, that‘s it. And for the musical, girl, you turned it into a party. I was in my seat like… twerks.
Micro: Whorechata, you are like a chicken. I take you out of the freezer, and you start to thaw. Last week, you warmed up, and this week, you were burning hot. This was start to finish, an incredible week for you. Every beat was hit, the flow was immaculate, and you balanced being able to hype yourself up, but also get real about your time on Season Five. On the runway, this look is so so good. The heavy chains around the ankles especially, that really works for me. If I had to nitpick, I think the hair color throws me off a little bit, and I wish she had a chain necklace or earrings to kinda tie the top half to the bottom half, but this was truly your week.
Micro: Next up, Wren Wyvern!
Jords: Wren, Wren, Wren. I‘m going to start with the runway. Let‘s break it down. When you see A first, you remember it. Then comes B. And when B is very similar to A, you like one more. That‘s exactly what it is between you and Anthyy. You both did armor-related looks. This look from Zendaya, my queen 'till the day I collapse, is very iconic. But I think this is one of the looks I like the least tonight. This verse made me think you used AI. Because you used some words that Jesus didn‘t even hear before he got crucified, Amen. I found it very funny, and you gave us something to run with, so good job on that.
Micro: Wren the rap star is back! You have a great understanding of music and verse writing, and are able to execute challenges like this phenomenally. The rhyme structure of the original song isn’t all that simple, it has little quirks, and that’s tough to write around. But you managed to pull it off, and pull it off really well. On the runway, this isn’t my favorite. Objectively, it’s a beautiful look. I will say though that MET Gala looks for me tend to just come off as a little expected. At this point in the competition, I have to pick at the tiny things.
Micro: Last but not least, Zodya!
Jords: Zodya! Well, while others used chains that were actually build into their look, you used it as a pattern. And I actually would have liked it more had you used a look that did so as well, because it gives it more a better vibe. I liked your verse a lot. It was so good. Nothing more to say, like damn she ate that.
Micro: Zodya, back with the Gaga! You are an incredible verse writer, undefeated so far. Tonight was no exception. Your lines all hit, and there was not a single error in the flow of it. Picking at the tiny things, I think the chorus didn’t give you many chances to change it in a major way. Such a small issue, but every little detail is being looked at under a microscope right now. On the runway, this was a really unique take. Opting to go for a chain pattern instead of actual chains, I don’t know how I feel about it! It’s something I haven’t seen before and I love that it gives you this polished look. Maybe I’m missing that industrial and metal vibe that real chains would’ve brought in, but it’s great for what it is.
Micro: Thank you queens. Based on your performances tonight, I've made some decisions. When I call your name, please step forward.
Micro: Anthyy, Blondie, Fleur, Steph, Sue, Wren, and Zodya. Great work this week, you are all safe.
🏁Fleur CF: Wait...what?
Micro: Morgs, Whorechata. Congratulations, you are the top two queens of the week!
the queens congratulate Morgs and Whorechata while looking shocked over everyone being safe
🏁Morgs CF: Well oh my gosh, I won!! And for it to happen on a week where I just let loose completely, it makes me feel so good. If you want the real me, here it is!
🏁Whorechata CF: My win era has arrived, it feels right!
Micro: Now, I hate a non-elimination week. You all know this, I know this, the lady down the street knows this. But when you deliver at a level like this, you leave me no other choice. I want to see more from each and every one of you. However, there will still be a lipsync. The winner of the lipsync will receive a significant advantage in the next challenge. Trust me, you want this one. Head on back to Untucked and get ready, I'll see you shortly!
Untucked
the queens enter Untucked
Morgs: Oh my damn, oh my damn!
🏁Morgs CF: I won my first challenge! This is my first time being in the top since the first episode. The risk to do Aretha paid off, and I'm so glad I made that decision. And it's honestly the perfect week to win, because I don't need to worry about making someone mad at me. I need to do a little happy dance or something, this is the best feeling!
Steph: Somebody better quit to make these numbers go down!
Wren: I felt that.
Sue: I was really doubting myself this week, so getting positive feedback and being safe, such a relief.
Anthyy: I feel that way, just flipped a little bit. I felt really good about my verse, and love my runway. But the critiques were a little shaky. I'm so grateful for everyone being safe, I'm not ready to land in the bottom!
Wren: Anthyy, Zodya. This is nothing against the two of you, but-
Zodya: Here we go.
Wren: It is a little frustrating that the week where you finally get mixed critiques, there's no bottoms. It feels interesting to me, that's all!
Steph: Oop.
🏁Wren CF: I believe that there was some tricks going on behind the scenes this week. I thought Zodya was the weakest, and by quite a lot to be honest. But she's won three challenges already, Micro can't risk her going home. It feels all too convenient that this was the week for nobody to go home.
Zodya: I'll be the first to admit that I wasn't in the best headspace this week. We've been here for awhile now, it got to me.
Wren: I think it mainly annoys me because just based off of critiques, I think I was next in line to be in the top. But now we're all safe, and it puts me and you on the same level.
Zodya: Is that a bad thing? Micro and Jords both said how well we all did.
Wren: I disagree with me being placed the same as everyone else, that's it.
Zodya: You can't just say "that's it" and expect the conversation to be over.
Wren: Well, I would like it to be over.
🏁Zodya CF: If Micro gave me a free pass this week, then let me just say a quick thank you and get back to the competition. But based on the critiques, I don't think that's what happened. When Wren wins the challenge, the judging makes total sense. But whenever she doesn't win, there's some conspiracy behind it. I know we've been here for a long time, but are the fumes getting to you?
Anthyy: I don't have anything else to say about that. We all slayed, we can just move on!
Sue: I do want to ask Fleur about her part in the musical. Was that actually how you feel?
Fleur: I mean...maybe a little.
Sue: Even on Season Four, I didn't know how much pressure you put on yourself after Season One.
Fleur: I came into that season so confident, but I gave up on myself. When you feel people cheering for you, and you can't take it all the way, it makes you feel like you disappointed them.
Anthyy: You didn't disappoint anyone on Season One!
Fleur: No, I know I disappointed myself at least.
🏁Fleur CF: I take what I do very seriously, and I really care about the legacy I leave behind. If I don't live up to the expectations I set for myself, it makes me feel like it's not even worth trying.
Fleur: I'm scared of that following me. I want people to see me for who I am now, not what I was doing then.
Blondie: You have no idea how much sense this is making.
Fleur: Really?
Blondie: Absolutely. The thing is, people will feel how they feel, and you can't change that. But when you start living in the moment and start this new path for yourself, they'll have no choice but to see you for who you are now. If you don't want them to focus on the past, you can't focus on it either.
🏁Zodya CF: And that is what we call a breakthrough!
the queens return to the runway
Micro: Welcome back ladies! Will the top two queens please step forward.
Morgs Lipsync Look
Whorechata Lipsync Look
Micro: Morgs, Whorechata. Prior to tonight, you were asked to prepare a lipsync performance of “I Believe in a Thing Called Love” by The Darkness.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKjZuykKY1I
Micro: This is your chance to impress me, and earn an advantage in the next challenge.
🏁Morgs CF: Eek, the nerves are starting to show up! I wasn't exactly a lipsync assassin on Season Three. But I've been working on my moves, and I think I can put up a good fight. Hope for the best!
🏁Whorechata CF: Finally, this is a song I can perform to! If y'all would've given me Fifth Harmony again, I would've walked out that door and never looked back.
"Can't explain all the feelings that you're making me feel
My heart's in overdrive and you're behind the steering wheel"
Morgs struts on out commanding the stage, she's got a REAL bad girl energy in her and you can tell it from the way she walks to the nasty glare in her eyes. She positions herself in the center of the stage and lip syncs like a preoccupied teenage boy
Whorechata does a little shimmy, feeling the music
"Touching you, touching me
Touching you,
God, you're touching me"
Morgs starts to shift from bratty to sultry as she looks over and attempts to grasp the air over to her opponent. She then feels her freaky pigtails sizzling it up. She then reaches over to her opponent again, then Morgs jiggly body starts to move to the rhythm, matching up to the beat
Whorechata does a little shimmy, feeling the music
"I believe in a thing called love
Just listen to the rhythm of my heart
There's a chance we could make it now
We'll be rocking 'til the sun goes down
I believe in a thing called love, hoo-ooh"
Morgs jumps into the air landing knee first on the ground and bobbing her head along. She spreads her legs open across the stage and shakes her hands enthusiastically near her heart area. She then shifts her body to the side as she drags herself across the stage doing a high kick in the air as she jumps back up on her feet. She then shimmies herself down to the ground with a sensual ‘shh’ motion to her lips. On the last line she does a fierce back bend as the loveee line progresses and she then reaches for her guitar for the solo. Its a freaky guitar btw, bright pink
Whorechata does a little shimmy, feeling the music
🎶Guitar solo🎶
Morgs plays her guitar matching the solo as it plays. She gets freakful to the music and moves across the stage truly making her stage presence known as she does some stunts throughout this like some back leans to the side and high kicks. She makes eye contact with her audience. throughout and they can tell that Morgs is NOT here to play games. She ends the guitar solo by making it look like she’s playing it with her tongue (very good at that) as rolls her tongue against it’s strings before throwing it back on her back
Whorechata does a little shimmy, feeling the music
"Touching you, touching me
Touching you,
God, you're touching me, ohh"
Morgs feels the sultry sensual rhythms again as she scurries off, she's such a bad bad girl and its showing in her whole aura. Morgs then makes her body jiggle by pumping it in line with the beat. Morgs then bawls her hands in a fist a pulsates them in a motion close to her heart, she then moves her hand down to her freakum as she vibrates her hand in that area making the ohh motion as she goes into a backbend in which she just barely touches the ground
Whorechata does a little shimmy, feeling the music
"I believe in a thing called love
Just listen to the rhythm of my heart
There's a chance we could make it now
We'll be rocking 'til the sun goes down
I believe in a thing called love"
Morgs then back flips up into her original position with her two feet on the ground (also a trained gymnast). She beams along to the music, feeling the rock star moment as she moves herself across the stage on all sides and to the back to the other queens watching as she interacts with them a little bit. She shakes her head hard along to the music. Morgs then grabs the guitar from behind her back as she is still in the back of the stage
Whorechata does a little shimmy, feeling the music
🎶Guitar solo🎶
As the solo starts Morgs, now holding the guitar, slides from the back of the stage all the way to the front playing the guitar violently and excitedly as she bangs her head along. As the song comes to a close with the breakdown, Morgs destroys the guitar by banging it all in one place on the stage in a rapidfire motion and as the last beat plays, she falls into a hard front facing split with her head on the ground and she points to the sky with her right index finger as she has finished putting on a concert for the girls. From the guitar holds a paper that says “Sharris was robbed” with a wink she goes back to her spot
Whorechata does a little shimmy, feeling the music
Micro: Whew, rock on!! That was a great performance...from one of you. I've made my decision.
...
...
Micro: Morgs, you're a winner, baby! You have won a significant advantage in the next challenge.
Morgs: Thanks a bunch!
Micro: Whorechata, you are safe.
Whorechata: Did all that just to be safe, just say you hate me!
Micro: Nine queens remain, and you all are the best of the best. Keep up the momentum, and give it your all. From here on out, at least one of you will be going home each week. Do not get comfortable. Now, let the music play!
"Banjo" by Bebe Zahara Benet plays
Next Time on Micro's Drag Race: All Stars
🏁Wren CF: I wouldn't say that I necessarily want to recite the entire Book of Mormon. It's more of a need. What is my life!?
Morgs notices a box on her workroom station that holds her advantage for the challenge
Sue: This is just me getting everything I could possibly want. You get a Kylie, you get a Kylie!
Lily: This was in really poor taste, and it went entirely too far.

2023.06.04 23:05 JoshAsdvgi THE MAN AND THE RAVENS

THE MAN AND THE RAVENS

THE MAN AND THE RAVENS
An Anishnabe Legend

There once was a man that enjoyed watching the black Raven's fly around, play, squawk, and chatter.
He enjoyed them so much he would climb trees just to be closer to them.
For many months the Ravens ignored the man, but after a while, one of the Ravens flew from a nearby tree and landed directly next to the man.

In utter amazement, the bird spoke to the man and asked, "You have been watching us for a long time.
You have tried to get close to us.
Why do you do this?"
The man replied, "I mean no harm.
I have become enchanted with you and all your relatives.
I enjoy the play, the squawking, and I wish I could learn your language so I could understand more about you."
Then the Raven responded, "We are honored that you want to know us, as long as you do not cause harm, we will teach you our language."
For many months the Ravens taught the man all about the language and how the Ravens lived from day to day.
The man became so educated that he knew everything there was to know about the Ravens.
Many of the Ravens saw the man and accepted him as a friend.
One day, an older Raven was flying far over the man, dropped a walnut perfectly on the man's head.
It was done on purpose and all the Ravens almost fell off their branches laughing so hard the way they do.
One Raven was flying and was laughing so hard he had to crash land right in front of the man.
The man was feeling bad and was hurt by being made fun of, so he asked the Raven in front of him,
"Why are you all picking on me."
The Raven stopped laughing and became very serious.
"We thought you understood us, but apparently you don't.
If you did you would know that we are not mocking you... well maybe a bit, but it is done in our way of having fun.
We are 'playing' with you and that is all.
It is not to be taken seriously.
You should know us better."
The man took sometime to understand this and over time a few more practical jokes were played on the man and he in turn pulled a few "good ones" on the birds.
A good time was had by all and the man became even closer to the Ravens.
Then another event occurred.
A young Raven swooped out of the sky and pecked the man on the head.
Then another young Raven swooped down and did the same thing.
The man ran across the field and into the woods but the Ravens kept chasing him and very skillfully they flew at high speeds through the woods tormenting the man.
Finally the two stopped and started to yell mean words, fighting words at the man.
Again the man did not understand, but he knew the two Ravens were very mad at him, so he decided to leave and let the Ravens be.
The man went away for many months.
As he did his duties in the his tribal village, he told all the people about his adventures and what he learned about the Ravens.
Some listened with intent, others just thought the man was a fool to study the Ravens so.
The villagers gave the man a new name of "Black Feather" because of his close relationship to the birds, but the man objected and said, "I am no longer close to the Raven people."
From above there was a squawking sound of a single Raven. Some of the people looked up and were surprised that they could understand the Raven, others just looked around because they could hear nothing but squawking.
The Raven was speaking to the man and said, "It is true, you are closer to us than any Anishinabe (Human) has ever come. You are close, but you still don't understand us fully.
I invite you to return to us, many miss you."
Black Feather started to follow the Raven but then stopped at the edge of the village.
He looked around to make sure no other Anishinabe could hear then asked the Raven, "why do you ask me back when the two Ravens where fighting with me and were mean."
"The Raven landed at Black Feathers feet and said, "See how little you understand us.
The two young Ravens did not fight with you because you are Anishinabe, it is because they accepted you as a member of the Raven people.
You should know that we fight among ourselves too.
It is a part of our way of life.
Instead of sulking and leaving you should have fought back."
Black Feather stood in silence and said, "There is much about Ravens I don't understand.
Maybe we are too different people to ever understand each other.
I should stop and return to my people in the village."
The Raven again shook his head and told Black Feather, "That is your choice, but again I tell you that you have come closer to us Raven people than any other Anishinabe.
Would you throw this all away just because you can't understand us yet?"
Black Feather responded, "It's useless, how can I ever understand you, I can't even fly!"
A thousand bursts of laughter was heard from all the surrounding trees and Black Feather knew that all the Raven People were there, hiding and listening.
"Of course you can't fly.
You are Anishinabe and we are Ravens.
But we accept you as one of us.
We play with you.
We fight with you.
We love you and want you back.
We also recommend you don't try to fly in order to be like us, because then, you would not be Anishinabe nor a Raven but something else.
We like you as an Anishinabe that understands us as Ravens. Join us or not the decision is yours."
Black Feather returned to the Anishinabe village and bid everyone farewell because he had decided to live with the Raven people.
After all the farewells and such he started to leave the village. All the Anishinabe people were there to see him off, and high over head was a thousand Raven's.
Then from high above one of the older Ravens dropped a walnut shell and again with remarkable aim, plunked Black Feather right on the head.
All the Ravens started laughing hard and all the Anishinabe were laughing too.
Black Feather laughed and looked up at the old Raven and said,
"Good one."

2023.06.04 23:04 Alive_Struggle9858 What is mania like for you?

I'm exploring the possibility of having bp2, but im trying to be honest with myself and not malinger. Im getting started with a psych soon but ive been nerding out on psychiatry and the bipolar spectrum so i hope its ok to ponder this. Not seeking a diagnosis just curious about other peoples experiences especially with hypo.
My sleep is pretty much always fucked and, if I were to be bipolar, it would seem that i sleep worse/less in my depressive periods than my hypo periods. I honestly dont think i can say ive ever completely lost a need for sleep, i always feel it after a few days. Ive been tracking my sleep on FitBit since December and generally i sleep like 4-5 hours a night. But sometimes this goes down to 1-3 and after about 4 days or a week of that i tend to crash for a day or 2 and feel more unstable and depressed. I do abuse caffeine and weed tho, however my reactions to these seem to vary greatly
There have been 3 instances in my life where my appetite magically decreases and dieting becomes easier, i drop weight without meaning to, but most of the time i am totally preoccupied with food even when i am "up." I struggle with bulimia, binge eating/compulsive overeating, and yo yo dieting.
I definitely have pressured speech but its hard to say whether that's exclusive to me being "up" or not.
There are times when im more social but im generally a little disagreeable and sometimes my "up" phases are accompanied by increased isolation as i feel i have a special, higher purpose to work towards and will only be brought down by others . So idk if thats hypo or any type of mania thing since it seems like most ppl when they're "up" just become complete social butterflies. Also when im "up" i still need to use alcohol as a social lubricant, awkward when around others who are just chilling and not drinking, and that usually ends in embarrassment for me
What i can definitely say tho is that there are times when my mindset, goals, and self perception are elevated. I become ambitious, motivated, confident, focused, even obsessive. I stop hating myself, feel spiritually significant, begin to feel worthy of the lofty goals and ambitions i set for myself. It becomes easier to do what I need to do to get where i want to get, and i do want, and i do try. But then it just goes away and im back to feeling worthless and undeserving, lose motivation and focus, my visions for my lift shift from expansive, positive, optimistic, and creative to fantasies of self destruction and suicide. Most recent experience of this was becoming extremely Christian, obsess about God and the Bible, intensely and emotionally spiritual, not want to talk to anyone about anything other than that and definitelyhaving pressured speech about it and also getting irritable/emotional at people disagreeing with me, nonstop consuming really intense Christian online content that i currently cant even stomach, buying a bunch of Christian clothing brand stuff and things like a purity ring (l. O. Fucking. L!) and redirecting my life vision to being "a faithful servant of God" and imagining myself becoming the voice of the generation bringing people to Jesus lol. I remember suddenly "feeling really good" but i wasnt sleeping any less and i wasnt necessarily working like a machine or anything. Then one day it just snapped and I went back to my self destructive habits (bulimia, weed, alcohol, sex) and started hating myself again and feeling undeserving of anything good, at first i had this mental feeling of demons pulling me down that i definitely made up, but then eventually i just felt empty and spiritually void and like none of it was ever even real. Thats honestly whats made me realize im weird and unstable af even tho that is deffinitely not even the worst its been in my life. Honestly its hard to imagine ever feeling so hopeful and confident again especially now that im starting to see that these moments could just be a result of a mental disorder. -_- then again, maybe ive just been young and dumb and those are normal parts of getting older? Idk nobody sees anything wrong but people have no idea how painful it is to be unable to trust myself and realize that i will always go back to depression that gets worse every time.
Tl;dr dae primarily experience mania as an uplifted mindset and spiritual essence vs any concrete symptoms of reduced sleep/appetite?

2023.06.04 23:01 AustralianChrono Chronologica's Drag Race Season 4: Episode 7- It's Your Festival Lip Sync

DRAG RACE!
Chronologica struts the runway wearing a cosplay of Twilight Sparkle, from my little pony.
Neigh!
Welcome to Drag Race.
Pot O’Pyrite, welcome back to the show!
“Pleasure to be back.” Pyrite grins.
Rachelle, Floss, what festival would YOU host?
“Ballroom, baby.”
“KAKITIKA KITI KA KA, OW!!!” Floss chants.
Rachelle blinks.
For our Challenge, our racers were tasked with curating their own festivals.
And on the runway, they’ll be wearing Carnival Couture looks.
It’s TIME!
~
Category is… Carnival Couture.
Dressed as the circus tent itself, Aguacate steps out in a full length, red and white striped gown. She herself is the ringleader, with a cane, top hat, and thin black mustache. At the end of the runway, she opens up her tent and invites everyone to come inside her circus!
She’s wide open.
Zazu Nova arrives in a fitted bodysuit adorned with fluffy cotton candy-like trim in a pastel pink shade, with a plunging neckline and cutouts on the sides and back. To complement the cotton candy theme, a wig made of fluffy curly pastel pink hair, decorated with cotton candy-like ornaments, sparkling glitter, and glossy lips, complete the look with a smiling Zazu.
“I’m hungry.” Floss laughs.
Yasmin struts out in a preppy white cricket player’s uniform, with white trousers, a shirt, and a knit jumper, and swings a cricket bat enthusiastically. As she finishes her swing, white Carnival feathers swoop out dramatically into wide decorative plumage, presenting the perfect combo of cricket and carnival, representative of Guyana’s Mashramani Festival.
“Ooooh….” Pyrite gasps.
In a huge plumed look in green, with a massive headdress and glistening jewels all over her body, Granny Gorgeous is ready for the festival, baby! She sambas and dances as she twirls through the stage, serving Brazilian Carnival.
“Dance, bitch!” Floss cheers.
Referencing the Italian Commedia dell'arte movement, Fiore Stravaganza enters with a face mask and a jester look, in a satin style with huge puffy sleeves. She takes off her mask to reveal a painted clown face with a smile.
“Oh, I love a Commedia dell'arte reference.” Pyrite smirks.
Jaslene Bangus has become a big top! She is a big red striped big top tent, wearing a gorgeous little mini dress that twirls along with her as she walks through the stage, with fluffy red hair and a smile upon her face.
Brittany’s back?
Showcasing a look for the Mombasa Carnival, King Omari Star wears a look of bright yellows, orange and greens, with a huge headpiece like a bird, and a bare chest that is covered in various chains. He’s got a massive cape that flows as he walks, and a huge smile.
“Cape King.” Rachelle moans.
~
Hi Racers.
This week, nobody is safe.
Starting with… Aguacate and Granny.
The two grin.
You were a chaotic duo.
“Me?” Aguacate gasps. “Chaotic?!”
And I loved it. It was fun, it was entertaining- you delivered here, and I really was happy with it.
“I had such a fun time with this.” Granny smiles. “It was a pleasure.”
Great job, the both of you.
The two grin.
Fiore and Jaslene.
The two look at each other and smile.
“I feel like this was off.” Pyrite purses his lips. “For me, it was just a crappy concept.”
Fiore sighs, visibly displeased.
“I feel as if you were just- not doing enough. Your festival, for me- it wasn’t FUN. I needed fun.” Pyrite responds.
“I do- I did enjoy this.” Jaslene smiles. “And I really enjoyed our concept, and I did think I was having fun but I get the critiques.”
Fiore Stravaganza: “I wasn’t, but werk.”
Fiore shrugs.
Next up, Crayola and Yasmin.
The two look at Chronologica.
“For me…” Floss smiles. “You two really shined tonight.”
“Woo!” Yasmin cheers. “Fantabulous.”
Floss beams. “For me, you were here, you were delivering, you had fun- the two of you, and I was most interested in your festival.”
“Thank you.” Yasmin tears up.
“You have a natural charisma- Yasmin. And this week, you embraced what we needed, Crayola. I’m proud of you both.”
Finally, Omari and Zazu.
Omari stands tall, whilst Zazu smiles.
“I think the reality is you seem… off kilter.” Rachelle says. “And yes, it was a team challenge, but the reality was Omari- you were the weaker link.”
Omari looks frustrated, as the others look at him.

Fiore.
Jaslene.
Aguacate.
Granny.
You are… Safe. You may untuck in the platinum lounge.
The four look surprised.
Omari, Zazu, Crayola & Yasmin. Please stand on stage for further critique.
~
Fiore, Jaslene, Granny and Aguacate enter the werkroom.
“Safety!” Aguacate chuckles, grabbing her drink.
Fiore grabs a cocktail. “Yay.”
The four sit down.
“This was interesting.” Granny says.
Aguacate takes a sip of her drink and nods. "Definitely interesting. I didn't expect Omari and Zazu to end up in the bottom. They're usually strong competitors. I mean, Omari is. Zazu is pretty, though." Aguacate giggles.
Fiore rolls her eyes. "Pretty ugly maybe. Well, I'm not surprised. Omari has been struggling lately, and Zazu is just… fat to cut at this point. They deserved to be in the bottom."
“Omari seemed… pissed.” Jaslene adds.
“Oh, he was MAD.” Aguacate giggles.
Fiore takes a sip of her cocktail. "Well, it's about time Omari was challenged. I feel like he’s been coasting, so…”
Jaslene nods, taking out her hand to hold Fiore, who shakes her head. “I’m good.”
Jaslene frowns.
Granny sighs and shakes her head. "I don't like seeing anyone upset, darlings. Drag Race is a tough competition, and emotions can run high. Let's hope they both handle it with grace."
Fiore giggles, before sipping her drink.
Aguacate chuckles. "Fiore, always a tough critic. But hey, it's part of what makes you fierce.”
“Exactly.” Fiore nods. “I'm simply stating the facts. Drag Race is not a place for weak links, and I have no patience for those who can't keep up."
Jaslene Bangus: “Fiore isn’t talking about me, is it? Out of nowhere, she’s suddenly acting… colder.”
"So, what do we think about the upcoming lip sync? Any predictions?" Granny smiles.
Granny raises an eyebrow. "Hmm, it's hard to say. Both Omari and Zazu are fierce performers. I wouldn't be surprised if they bring the house down."
Aguacate smirks. "I have a feeling Omari is going to fight tooth and nail to stay. He's got that fire in him. It'll be an intense lip sync."
Jaslene nods. "Yeah, I can see that. But Zazu is no slouch either. She knows how to captivate an audience. It'll be a battle of fierce personalities."
“I think Omari is going to decimate that girl verbally.” Fiore adds. “I see them fighting.”
“Oh, they’ve already fought before, and..” Granny sighs.
Jaslene shrugs. “I mean, I just hope I’m in the room when it happens.”
Fiore smirks.
“Okay, let’s get drunk!” Aguacate yells, grabbing shot glasses. “TEQUILA!”
~
I want to talk further, and really analyze your performances.
Starting with… Crayola.
Crayola grins.
“I am really happy to have seen you going outside of your shell.” Rachelle nods. “Really commendable.”
“Thank you.” Crayola nods with a grin.
“You played the part of the straight man, and I think that was a fun choice.” Rachelle purses her lips. “But it did mean Yasmin was the more BRIGHT personality.”
Crayola nods.
Zazu.
“Hiya!” Zazu smiles.
I really do like your energy, Zazu. I feel like it’s a real positive and bright energy.
Zazu grins.
But I do want you to keep PUSHING yourself. I need a little more, and I do feel as if yes, you were in many ways brought down by your partner…
Omari looks over.
But, alternatively you struggled and have been struggling. I just… want to see you push it.
Zazu nods.
Yasmin.
Yasmin grins.
“It was a pleasure seeing you this week.” Pyrite says with a grin. “You were charming, you were fun, you were the highlight for me.”
Crayola looks over.
“Wow, I am so ever so pleased.” Yasmin beams.
“It was just- a simply put, masterclass in hosting.” Pyrite nods. “Well done.”
“Thank you.” Yasmin nods.
Omari.
“Baby.” Floss sighs. “This was a disappointing week, for me.”
“Okay.” Omari says. “I can see that.”
“You just- I saw you trying, but it didn’t come across authentic. I was wanting you to loosen up. Did you come up with this concept?” Floss asks.
King Omari Star: “Part of me wants to decimate Zazu on the stage. But…”
“It was a team effort.” Omari responds. “And I want to take accountability for MY performance- because yes, I didn’t meet the mark.”
Floss nods. “I want to see you shine, baby. You’re here to fight. Show it, but let yourself roll with these punches.”
Omari looks down and nods. “Thank you.”
Thanks, racers. Whilst we deliberate, you may untuck backstage in the Crystal Lounge, sponsored by Princess Papaya Tropical Drinks.
~
The four enter the Crystal lounge.
“Where’s my fabulous drink?” Yasmin smiles, grabbing her non-alcoholic drink.
The four sit down.
“So….” Crayola purses her lips. “How do we think we’re placing?”
“Clearly, we’re in the bottom.” Omari looks over at Zazu.
Zazu looks nervously for a second, before nodding.
“How do you feel about that, Omari?” Yasmin asks.
Yasmin Raiz: “He’s… a strong character. And I expect him to probably go at Zazu. I mean, Zazu looks it.”
Zazu looks at Omari.
Omari takes a deep breath and looks directly at Zazu. "I've been doing a lot of thinking lately. These… critiques." Omari begins. "And I realize that instead of being angry and frustrated, I should be using this opportunity to learn and grow. We're both here because we love drag, and we want to show the world what we're capable of. So, instead of dwelling on our flaws, let's embrace them and use them as fuel to give the performance of our lives in the lip sync."
Zazu's eyes widen in surprise, both she nods.
"You're right, Omari. Let's show them the fire that burns within us and give them a lip sync they'll never forget!" Zazu smiles. “I know we didn’t work it out, this week-”
“And I know that is a lot due to myself.” Omari nods. “So I own that.”
“It was me too.” Zazu responds. “But we’re both performers.”
“I live for the stage.” Omari lights up. “And it’s not something I fear, it’s an opportunity.”
“I think the same.” Zazu nods.
"Absolutely! You two have incredible talent, and I have no doubt that you can deliver an unforgettable performance. Just remember, it's not about being perfect; it's about showing your passion and giving it your all." Yasmin responds with a bright grin.
"I've been worried about this challenge, but seeing you two find strength in each other has inspired me. We're all in this together, and we can lift each other up." Crayola adds.
The others walk in, as the four look at each other.
“Oh, not a fight.” Jaslene chuckles.
“Why, were you worried?” Yasmin asks.
“Should we go prepare?” Omari looks at Zazu, who nods.
“I think it’ll be judged individually, and I am so happy to be here, but… I don’t feel like I did as good as you! You just have that… more crowd pleasing personality.” Crayola says with a smile.
Yasmin makes a face, before nodding.
Yasmin Raiz: “Is she shading myself?”
“I mean that with love, my dear.” Crayola adds. “You did fantastic.”
“Thanks.” Yasmin grins.
“Crayola, you really do remind me of what people think of teachers.” Jaslene smiles.
“Thank you.” Crayola grins.
Jaslene smirks.
Zazu turns to Omari with a smile. “Can we hug?”
Omari looks at Zazu. “...Do we have to?”
“We don’t.” Zazu chuckles. “I just want to fight here. Because… I do want this.” Zazu tears up. “My journey here has been challenging, but I love to perform. I love delivering these looks and you know, I see I am doing bad. But my parents- and my drag family, I know they have faith in me.”
“I think you’re a talent.” Omari responds, before exhaling. “I love drag with all my heart, and I want to show the world the passion that drives me. This lip sync is not just about staying in the competition; it's about reclaiming my power and reminding myself why I fell in love with drag in the first place."
“Heck yeah.” Zazu grins.
~
Welcome back, racers. I’ve made my decision.
Crayola Boxx, this week, you worked hard, and brought the spice.
Yasmin, we’re eating YOU UP!
Condragulations, you are BOTH the winner of this week’s challenge.
They smile, with Crayola looking particularly surprised.
Yasmin Raiz: “My WIN!!!” Yasmin cheers.
That means Zazu Nova and King Omari Star, I’m sorry my dears, but you are up for elimination.
The two look at each other.
The time has come… for you to lip sync to your life!
**Livin’ La Vida Loca by Ricky Martin starts to play**
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CN5hQOI\_\_10
Good luck… and don’t fuck it up!
Zazu Nova: “I know this is another week in the bottom. But I love to perform. This is my heart and soul, and I’m going to show it.”
King Omari Star: “It’s time to live La Vida Loca, baby.” Omari smirks.
~
Next Time!
“Racers, it’s time for an IMPROV CHALLENGE!” Rachelle Mirage cheers.
Aguacate gasps.
“I’m stuck in this house…” Granny looks around.
Fiore Stravaganza: “Real talk, it’s time we’re over.”
“A.E Girls?” Jaslene winks.
“Meh.” Fiore responds.

“You have a natural charisma- Yasmin. And this week, you embraced what we needed, Crayola. I’m proud of you both.”
Finally, Omari and Zazu.
Omari stands tall, whilst Zazu smiles.
“I think the reality is you seem… off kilter.” Rachelle says. “And yes, it was a team challenge, but the reality was Omari- you were the weaker link.”
Omari looks frustrated, as the others look at him.

Fiore.
Jaslene.
Aguacate.
Granny.
You are… Safe. You may untuck in the platinum lounge.
The four look surprised.
Omari, Zazu, Crayola & Yasmin. Please stand on stage for further critique.
~
Fiore, Jaslene, Granny and Aguacate enter the werkroom.
“Safety!” Aguacate chuckles, grabbing her drink.
Fiore grabs a cocktail. “Yay.”
The four sit down.
“This was interesting.” Granny says.
Aguacate takes a sip of her drink and nods. "Definitely interesting. I didn't expect Omari and Zazu to end up in the bottom. They're usually strong competitors. I mean, Omari is. Zazu is pretty, though." Aguacate giggles.
Fiore rolls her eyes. "Pretty ugly maybe. Well, I'm not surprised. Omari has been struggling lately, and Zazu is just… fat to cut at this point. They deserved to be in the bottom."
“Omari seemed… pissed.” Jaslene adds.
“Oh, he was MAD.” Aguacate giggles.
Fiore takes a sip of her cocktail. "Well, it's about time Omari was challenged. I feel like he’s been coasting, so…”
Jaslene nods, taking out her hand to hold Fiore, who shakes her head. “I’m good.”
Jaslene frowns.
Granny sighs and shakes her head. "I don't like seeing anyone upset, darlings. Drag Race is a tough competition, and emotions can run high. Let's hope they both handle it with grace."
Fiore giggles, before sipping her drink.
Aguacate chuckles. "Fiore, always a tough critic. But hey, it's part of what makes you fierce.”
“Exactly.” Fiore nods. “I'm simply stating the facts. Drag Race is not a place for weak links, and I have no patience for those who can't keep up."
Jaslene Bangus: “Fiore isn’t talking about me, is it? Out of nowhere, she’s suddenly acting… colder.”
"So, what do we think about the upcoming lip sync? Any predictions?" Granny smiles.
Granny raises an eyebrow. "Hmm, it's hard to say. Both Omari and Zazu are fierce performers. I wouldn't be surprised if they bring the house down."
Aguacate smirks. "I have a feeling Omari is going to fight tooth and nail to stay. He's got that fire in him. It'll be an intense lip sync."
Jaslene nods. "Yeah, I can see that. But Zazu is no slouch either. She knows how to captivate an audience. It'll be a battle of fierce personalities."
“I think Omari is going to decimate that girl verbally.” Fiore adds. “I see them fighting.”
“Oh, they’ve already fought before, and..” Granny sighs.
Jaslene shrugs. “I mean, I just hope I’m in the room when it happens.”
Fiore smirks.
“Okay, let’s get drunk!” Aguacate yells, grabbing shot glasses. “TEQUILA!”
~
I want to talk further, and really analyze your performances.
Starting with… Crayola.
Crayola grins.
“I am really happy to have seen you going outside of your shell.” Rachelle nods. “Really commendable.”
“Thank you.” Crayola nods with a grin.
“You played the part of the straight man, and I think that was a fun choice.” Rachelle purses her lips. “But it did mean Yasmin was the more BRIGHT personality.”
Crayola nods.
Zazu.
“Hiya!” Zazu smiles.
I really do like your energy, Zazu. I feel like it’s a real positive and bright energy.
Zazu grins.
But I do want you to keep PUSHING yourself. I need a little more, and I do feel as if yes, you were in many ways brought down by your partner…
Omari looks over.
But, alternatively you struggled and have been struggling. I just… want to see you push it.
Zazu nods.
Yasmin.
Yasmin grins.
“It was a pleasure seeing you this week.” Pyrite says with a grin. “You were charming, you were fun, you were the highlight for me.”
Crayola looks over.
“Wow, I am so ever so pleased.” Yasmin beams.
“It was just- a simply put, masterclass in hosting.” Pyrite nods. “Well done.”
“Thank you.” Yasmin nods.
Omari.
“Baby.” Floss sighs. “This was a disappointing week, for me.”
“Okay.” Omari says. “I can see that.”
“You just- I saw you trying, but it didn’t come across authentic. I was wanting you to loosen up. Did you come up with this concept?” Floss asks.
King Omari Star: “Part of me wants to decimate Zazu on the stage. But…”
“It was a team effort.” Omari responds. “And I want to take accountability for MY performance- because yes, I didn’t meet the mark.”
Floss nods. “I want to see you shine, baby. You’re here to fight. Show it, but let yourself roll with these punches.”
Omari looks down and nods. “Thank you.”
Thanks, racers. Whilst we deliberate, you may untuck backstage in the Crystal Lounge, sponsored by Princess Papaya Tropical Drinks.
~
The four enter the Crystal lounge.
“Where’s my fabulous drink?” Yasmin smiles, grabbing her non-alcoholic drink.
The four sit down.
“So….” Crayola purses her lips. “How do we think we’re placing?”
“Clearly, we’re in the bottom.” Omari looks over at Zazu.
Zazu looks nervously for a second, before nodding.
“How do you feel about that, Omari?” Yasmin asks.
Yasmin Raiz: “He’s… a strong character. And I expect him to probably go at Zazu. I mean, Zazu looks it.”
Zazu looks at Omari.
Omari takes a deep breath and looks directly at Zazu. "I've been doing a lot of thinking lately. These… critiques." Omari begins. "And I realize that instead of being angry and frustrated, I should be using this opportunity to learn and grow. We're both here because we love drag, and we want to show the world what we're capable of. So, instead of dwelling on our flaws, let's embrace them and use them as fuel to give the performance of our lives in the lip sync."
Zazu's eyes widen in surprise, both she nods.
"You're right, Omari. Let's show them the fire that burns within us and give them a lip sync they'll never forget!" Zazu smiles. “I know we didn’t work it out, this week-”
“And I know that is a lot due to myself.” Omari nods. “So I own that.”
“It was me too.” Zazu responds. “But we’re both performers.”
“I live for the stage.” Omari lights up. “And it’s not something I fear, it’s an opportunity.”
“I think the same.” Zazu nods.
"Absolutely! You two have incredible talent, and I have no doubt that you can deliver an unforgettable performance. Just remember, it's not about being perfect; it's about showing your passion and giving it your all." Yasmin responds with a bright grin.
"I've been worried about this challenge, but seeing you two find strength in each other has inspired me. We're all in this together, and we can lift each other up." Crayola adds.
The others walk in, as the four look at each other.
“Oh, not a fight.” Jaslene chuckles.
“Why, were you worried?” Yasmin asks.
“Should we go prepare?” Omari looks at Zazu, who nods.
“I think it’ll be judged individually, and I am so happy to be here, but… I don’t feel like I did as good as you! You just have that… more crowd pleasing personality.” Crayola says with a smile.
Yasmin makes a face, before nodding.
Yasmin Raiz: “Is she shading myself?”
“I mean that with love, my dear.” Crayola adds. “You did fantastic.”
“Thanks.” Yasmin grins.
“Crayola, you really do remind me of what people think of teachers.” Jaslene smiles.
“Thank you.” Crayola grins.
Jaslene smirks.
Zazu turns to Omari with a smile. “Can we hug?”
Omari looks at Zazu. “...Do we have to?”
“We don’t.” Zazu chuckles. “I just want to fight here. Because… I do want this.” Zazu tears up. “My journey here has been challenging, but I love to perform. I love delivering these looks and you know, I see I am doing bad. But my parents- and my drag family, I know they have faith in me.”
“I think you’re a talent.” Omari responds, before exhaling. “I love drag with all my heart, and I want to show the world the passion that drives me. This lip sync is not just about staying in the competition; it's about reclaiming my power and reminding myself why I fell in love with drag in the first place."
“Heck yeah.” Zazu grins.
~
Welcome back, racers. I’ve made my decision.
Crayola Boxx, this week, you worked hard, and brought the spice.
Yasmin, we’re eating YOU UP!
Condragulations, you are BOTH the winner of this week’s challenge.
They smile, with Crayola looking particularly surprised.
Yasmin Raiz: “My WIN!!!” Yasmin cheers.
That means Zazu Nova and King Omari Star, I’m sorry my dears, but you are up for elimination.
The two look at each other.
The time has come… for you to lip sync to your life!
**Livin’ La Vida Loca by Ricky Martin starts to play**
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CN5hQOI\_\_10
Good luck… and don’t fuck it up!
Zazu Nova: “I know this is another week in the bottom. But I love to perform. This is my heart and soul, and I’m going to show it.”
King Omari Star: “It’s time to live La Vida Loca, baby.” Omari smirks.
~
Next Time!
“Racers, it’s time for an IMPROV CHALLENGE!” Rachelle Mirage cheers.
Aguacate gasps.
“I’m stuck in this house…” Granny looks around.
Fiore Stravaganza: “Real talk, it’s time we’re over.”
“A.E Girls?” Jaslene winks.
“Meh.” Fiore responds.

2023.06.04 22:47 ChessBro96 Annotations of my Quads games (from a 2100+ USCF player)

So, as some of you may know, I had been experiencing a terrible losing streak lately, dropping games that I really shouldn't to the point that I had been 0+ 2= 5- in the past seven games. However, during the past weekend, I felt a sort of divine bout of inspiration swell up inside of me and wanted to try something new out. Of course, the very next day I find out that I'm getting a bye in the next round.
Since I'm a guy who operates on emotional state, I knew I couldn't allow this chance to cool down, so I decided to take a risk and enroll into Saturday's Quads games (G30;d5). I had the unfortunate circumstance of having a last minute entry bump me down to a lower section, which I out-ranked by a good 150 points at least, so I knew I needed at least a 2,5/3 in order to preserve my rating. A link to the study (which was requested previously when I did this) is linked here: https://lichess.org/study/fbOOHr9S/VZl1kEAa

Game 1: In the first round, I was paired as White against a young Indian WCM. I'm primarily an 1.e4 player, but these little rascals have been tactically outplaying me for the past several games, so I decided to change things up and went for an anti-QGD. I actually ended up messing my move orders early on, which allowed her to equalize early because I couldn't guarantee the appearance of an IQP or hanging pawns structure on the board to play off. However, she seemed to be confused by the resulting position — I noticed that young players in these situations tend to attempt to form tactics when the board is quiet, but as a result she ended up floating aimlessly. There were actually two opportunities when she could have obtained an advantage, but she missed them and we ended up going into a rook and bishop endgame. I've also noticed that kids are notoriously terrible at endgames (which as somebody raised on the Soviet school of chess I find hilarious), as she misplayed what I considered a pretty basic endgame, although she was in time trouble at this point (and so was I). I ended up securing the passer and marching it up to victory. 1-0 for me.

Game 2: I was playing against a young Chinese kid as Black this time around and I went for the same strategy in the English Opening: slow the game down as much as possible and not allow any tactics to be induced into the position. And even though there were some moves that the engine ultimately wasn't a fan of, I succeeded in my strategy and ended up with a small edge. I did however miss an opportunity to play a blockade in the middlegame (rapid game, what can I tell ya?) which meant he had an opportunity to secure a plus if he gave away his h2-pawn for the f3-pawn. However, he didn't notice it and went for an endgame a pawn down. However, we both were in a fair bit of time trouble at this point as well and the endgame was quite complex with each side having 5-6 pawns with a knight vs bishop. I messed up some maneuvering that I probably would have gotten on longer time controls... I'll have to work on my endgames some more so that it'd come more intuitively. However, at a moment when he had a chance to equalize, with 30 seconds on the clock, he blundered straight into a fork and instantly resigned on the spot. 2-0 for me.

Game 3: This time, as Black, I was against a fellow Russian player who also scored 2-0 in the previous two rounds, so as they say: the winner takes it all. We went into a fairly well-known sharp line of the Sveshnikov that is no longer played at top level anymore after Peter Leko's 12...Rg8 neutralized it. He ended up fumbling the theory badly and gave a completely winning position for Black. However, I fumbled it as well by going into the endgame with a solid edge rather than pressing the winning position. The issue being that I spent several minutes on calculation before realizing that I actually didn't have enough time to calculate all the variations of the incredibly sharp line, so I was satisfied for going to a positional plus instead. Which we both ended up fumbling a little, but I ended up breaking through with my rook on the queenside and emerging a pawn up with the king on the back rank that I exploited. He resigned as soon as he realized how hopeless his piece-down position was. 3-0 for me.

In conclusion, not bad, scoring a performance rating of 2369 and going from 2127 to 2173 USCF. However, there were definitely a few issues I have to work on despite the wins: the first game needs some work on opening theory and move transpositions if I want to adopt the quieter 1.Nf3 into my repertoire — I can't allow Black to equalize that easily early on. The next two games I had a bit too many fumbles in the endgame, despite their complexity, especially in the second game, which I shouldn't have pissed away like that (42...g4? was an especially sketchy move) so I need a bit more work on knight vs bishop endgames especially. The third game was fine for the most part, but could use a bit of improvement on calculation abilities and especially back rank understandings: I was actually a little confused as to what I should have done against 32.f3 if it had appeared on the board, so that was a combination deficiency right there. Other than that, I can't say that I'm not happy with the result, and hope this offsets some of the rating loss that will be incurred in the ongoing tournament.
Any suggestions and questions are welcome. :)

2023.06.04 22:46 SquarePeg79 Firefox vs Brave (on OS Specifically)

Hi all
This isn't your standard Gecko vs Chromium flame war spark, I'd like to know what Tumbleweed users find the best browser. I've narrowed it down to Firefox or Brave but I'm not 100% wedded to either. Firefox has served me well over the years but I find it starting to be a little sluggish now and I have tried Brave which seems to work pretty well. I just can't decide between the two.
Any thoughts/suggestions?

2023.06.04 22:42 play987654321 I had a magical Sunday involving trans plants

Earlier, I was in my garden and I found a new, white flower I hadn’t seen before and I used an app (PictureThis) to identify it. It’s called a campion. I then dropped a coworker off on the Appalachian Trail for a 5 day hike, and on my way back, there was a huge pileated woodpecker in the middle of the road. I pulled over, picked it up, and walked it back to my car. It didn’t look injured, just stunned. I put it in a tree and it flew away and left me a feather.
I went home and found a baby fawn nested in my yard. Then, I went into my barn to look for string to trellis my peas, and I found a nest with three baby warbler chicks in it. I went back into the garden and started to transplant some strawberry starts my neighbor (a chimney sweep) gave to me, and a car slowed down to ask for directions.
It was the chair of UVA’s biology department. He explained that he and two other scientists with him were looking for a small white flower called a campion, but they weren’t having any luck… The same flower I found this morning!
I showed him the flower and he got really excited. He explained that this flower is interesting because it has male and female plants, XX and XY. The XY plants become infected with a fungus, which they then shoot out spores of instead of pollen. The fungus then is carried by bees from the XY plants to the female plants. Once the female plants are infected, they change sex. It’s basically an STD. Trans plants!
The plant only blooms when the sun isn’t out, and so often you see it painted on medieval paintings that depict openings to the underworld near the cavernous entrance to hell. It’s also in the unicorn tapestries, like the Unicorn Rests in the Garden. I cut off a little one and put it next to my dad’s ashes.
Have a wonderful Sunday. I forgot to go to church but I still feel touched by God.

2023.06.04 22:28 Theman061393 World Qualification overview

Following the recent RLCS events I wanted to go over the worlds overview. This time I'm going to do it differently splitting it by region and highlighting what teams in each region would need to do.
As a reminder this is not meant to be comprehensive scenarios. If you do want more specific, I would be glad to address those in individual comments below.

Spring Major Bracket

To start I figured it would be helpful to remind people of the current bracket. Parenthesis represent the team currently occupying each spot.

MENA


With Rule One being the representative at the Spring Major they are the only team that has a chance to earn a main event spot (which would also get Twisted Minds into the wildcard).
To do so they would need at least top 6 and very likely top 4 or better.
If they get top 6 then they would need neither NA4 or EU4 to be top 8, which would likely require a top 8 of 3 NA, 3 EU, Rule One and then another minor region team.
With a top 4 they would be extremely likely to make it barring a miracle run from OCE.
One other thing to note is that a top 8 for Rule One would give them the #1 MENA seed which could matter for matchups in the wildcard round.

OCE

KCP has clinched at least a wildcard but actually is still alive for a chance at main event birth.
If either GZG or PWR finish top 6, neither NA4 or EU4 finishes in the top 8 and MENA is not top 4, then OCE would earn a main event spot and KCP would maintain the #1 seed thus getting the main event qualification spot, with both GZG and PWR making wildcard.
If GZG or PWR finish 4th or better (barring a miracle run from Rule One and NA or EU getting 4 teams in the top 6), that team would earn he extra spot for OCE and knock KCP to the wildcard.
Should neither of those things happen then whoever makes it further of GZG and PWR will join KCP in the wilcard and the other one will be eliminated. Should they both go out in the same round then it would be a best of 7 tiebreaker.
Note that due to the bracket, if they both lose round 1 they would be facing off in lower round 1 in what is essentially an elimination match (barring a crazy lower bracket run from the winner.
It is mathmatically possible for OCE to earn 2 main event spots (in this case GZG and PWR) should they both make very deep runs, but not realistically possible.

APAC

Barring absolute chaos Elevate and Gamin Gladiators will represent APAC in the wildcard. It is mathmatically possible for APAC to earn a main event spot, if you are interested in that math, I am sure Drekt or Rubunaul will provide those scenarios at some point.
For any of the other 3 teams they would need to make the major and then make a deep run to surpass Gamin Gladiators for the 2nd APAC wildcard spot.

SAM

SAM is very likely to get 3 spots, with any of the top 3 having a decent chance to get that top seed and thus the main event birth.
It actually surprises me that the path to a 2nd main event spot for SAM, while still unlikely is actually noy outrageous. Should both SAM teams get top 6 and neither NA or EU get 4 of the top 8 that both major teams from SAM would make main event and the best of the second tier would make the wildcard.
It would be very hard for SAM to lose their auto main event spot, would require a deep run (top 4+ for either Rule Once or OCE to even have a chance of occurring.

EU

EU is realistically looking at 3 main event and 3 wildcards spots with a small chance at 4 main event spots.
They could fall down to 2 spots if OCE or MENA make a deep run and 4 NA teams outplace the 3rd best EU team. In that case it would likely be Vitality that falls down into the wildcard and BDS that gets eliminated entirely unless either of those two teams make a deep major run.
Should they end up at three spots, then its pretty set which teams would make main event and wildcard.
To get a 4th spot they would need to get 4 in the top 8, and not have NA also get 4 of the top 8 or have a deep run (top 4+ from OCE/MENA)
Should that happen then whoever finishes better in the last regional between G1/Tundra (G1 if they end in the same spot) would get a wildcard spot. In addition Moist (if they are at the major) or OXG elsewise would likely move up to the main event.
Any teams below PSG/Tundra would need to make the major, make a deep run and have EU get 4 spots to have any chance.

NA

NA is in pretty similar situation to EU
In order to lose their 3rd spot (which would knock COL down to wildcard and one of G2/V1/SSG out entirely) they would need to 4th best EU team to outperform the 3rd best NA and a deep run from MENA or OCE or both SAM teams
Should NA fail to get 4 teams in the top 8 then it is very likely the participants will be those outlined above.
If NA does get 4 teams in the top 8 they would bevery likely keep that 4th spot and one of GenG/Faze/COL move up to the main event and the highest of the remaining teams (likely Optic) qualifies for wildcard.

SSA

Without the major SSA comes down to the last regional. It's essentially whoever places highest of those three teams (tiebreakers if French Class finishes one spot ahead of Nixuh), with a small chance of White Rabbit if they do well and all of the other 3 above them falter.
