My younger brother just came out to me as bi. Really trying to understand, support, and protect him

2021.10.20 01:20 Lostalotaweight My younger brother just came out to me as bi. Really trying to understand, support, and protect him

He’s in his mid 20s and I’m 30. He’s the only son in our family which is a big deal to my dad. We grew up in a Catholic Scottish(dad)/African American(mom) family. He’s in a long term & long distance relationship with a woman who knows that he’s bi. They are currently on the rocks due to long distance.
My brother is depressed and lives alone with his cat who he takes great care of. My parents are loving but stoic and homophobic. They think being non-straight is a sin but they don’t think they’re homophobic because “they have gay friends”. I’m so protective of my brother and I know he’s desperate for their approval. He told me he feels incredibly alone.
He’s starting therapy next week (signed up on his own!!!!) and I’m waiting to hear how it goes. How can I be more understanding? What questions should I be asking him right now? Should I ask about his love life? Is there anything I should read to understand bisexuality better?
Thank you for your help

2021.10.20 01:20 Louis111099 Looking for subtle gothic horror

So I'm looking for some more subtle gothic horror books. I'm not really into cheap scares or over the top stuff. I'm looking for a book that uses elements of gothic horror to explore something else.
I really like concepts of the sublime, liminality, and how the gothic uses nature as a character.
Any suggestions? Thanks!

2021.10.20 01:20 th3frozenpriest Tome of the Mind - Chapter 6

[first] [prev] [next]

Samuel set out from his small campsite late the next day, having slept in quite a bit. He’d been out of the camping and traveling mindset for nearly a month now, so his body wasn’t used to sleeping in rough conditions, and waking early with the dawn to begin the journey. Thankfully, a nice breakfast of sausage and coffee rejuvenated him enough that it wasn’t too bad.
Most of the day was taken up by the sheer size of the Dagorra Forest. Strictly speaking, if he’d just continued to the northwest, he would have left the trees with just another hour or so of travel. But he was making his way almost directly north first, to the cave where Arcana had hidden. He wanted to know what he might find there, and so, not being one to deny his own curiosity, he’d decided to make this one detour
He glimpsed several denizens of the forest as he traveled north, but they left him to his own devices. A few of the druids he saw waved or nodded in greeting, but most chose to pretend he didn’t exist. There were two main different behaviors, he noticed. There were the friendly types who were just too busy to chat with a stranger, then there were those who clearly didn’t like outsiders, like the druids he’d encountered the previous evening.
At first, Samuel just walked along the game trails, but he soon realized that this was much too slow. Remembering his journey with Shigeru and Grimr, he began jogging for half an hour, then resting with an easy long-legged pace. He started to cover much more ground after that. He remembered, with a wry grin, how badly out of shape he’d been on that first trip, reduced to a shambling panting wreck after the first hour. But in this new body, such a task posed no real problem.
He broke out of the trees much sooner than he’d expected, and for a moment, he thought that he had taken the wrong direction. He was able to navigate by the sun, or in case of night, the stars, but even he had a stab of doubt as he took in the surrounding landscape. The forest grew right up to the foot of the mountain but didn’t stop there. It curved around to the far east, where he could see the Estavor Mountain Range.
“Where does the forest end?” He mused aloud. “Even for a God and an Ancient, Grimr has done well.”
He started his slow progress up the mountain, nearly making it four hundred feet up the slope before he was quickly reminded of his previous attempt. Massive boulders littered the mountainside even a hundred years later, the remnants of Arcana’s last escape. As Grimr had told him, Arcana had fled up this slope, using great chunks of the mountain to crush his pursuers and allow him to slip into the cave, where he would hide for nearly a thousand years.
The boulders had weathered a bit with the passing years, but they were still clearly defined. Even worse, they were just as clearly in his way. Grimacing at the memory of clambering over each and every one in his path before, he decided that he didn’t want to make that effort today. Better to take the quicker, and only slightly less exhausting route to the top.
He conjured some powerful winds around his body to lift him from the ground and began to fly over the boulders up to the peak. He was a lot slower in his flight than before but still quicker than he’d be on foot. The stones whipped past him as he flew up, using an occasional burst of wind to push him up again. He could only ever fly in one direction at a time with this spell, so he relied a lot on momentum.
He reached the peak in just under ten minutes, landing a little clumsily on the old ledge. There was the familiar cave entrance, he thought to himself. But he knew better than before. It was not a true cave, but a way to hide a long vertical tunnel that reached right down into the mountain’s heart. Shigeru and Grimr had pushed him down before when he’d been on his way to find the fallen god the first time.
Getting down the tunnel was much smoother this time, not to mention painless in comparison. He didn’t freefall until he hit the hard rock landing, this time, but fell down in a controlled descent. He kept his senses sharp for the beginning of the anti-magic barrier that would appear in the last twenty feet and brought himself to a complete stop just in time. He hovered in place for a moment, then let himself drop, rolling as soon as his feet touched down to absorb the shock.
The chamber inside was much as he remembered it. A short tunnel led to a smooth circular chamber. Even the opening he’d made a hundred years ago was still there, and he moved through it, into the slightly smaller chamber that had been Arcana’s last resting place. The walls of this room were more ornate, sporting intricate pillars spaced evenly apart, keeping this entire section of the structure upright. And there, in the direct center, was the large metal brazier that had held the god.
Or had it held the god? Samuel dropped to one knee to peer at the base of the brazier. Most of it was stone, with an intricate metal frame at the top that curved up like a great bowl. But along the stone at the base were several intricate runes, wrapping all around the stone to form a complete circle.
His grasp on the language of the Ancients had been rather droll from the beginning, and even the few words he knew here wouldn’t do him much good. He thought he recognized one word in the line, the name Isip, but the rest might have been Welsik for all he understood. But he did know one Ancient, he thought, who would probably welcome the distraction of helping him decipher the runes.
Sitting cross-legged in front of the empty brazier, Samuel closed his eyes and took several deep breaths. He’d never prayed to a god before, but the process seemed self-explanatory. Allowing his mind to become focused on a single thought, he concentrated as fiercely as he could.
Grimr! He thought with all his might.
There was an instant reply. Don’t shout at me! Who do you think you are to-
The voice trailed off, and Samuel could imagine Grimr rolling his eyes in impatience. What do you want, Samuel?
I’m in Arcana’s cave, and I’ve come across a set of runes. They appear to be written in Ahyan, and I cannot decipher them.
Certainly, you can, Grimr replied. Your mind knows the words, you just have to unlock them.
Samuel heaved a sigh. Can we assume you’ve given your usual lecture, and tell me how to do that?
You’re no fun, Grimr said. Fine. It’s simple. Tap into that which makes you Ancient, and you will find a font of knowledge stored there. That will include the language.
Grimr disengaged from the impromptu prayer-conversation, and Samuel opened his eyes. Surprisingly, Grimr’s answer made a great deal of sense. The one thing that had changed so dramatically for Samuel hadn’t been his new body, but the reinforced mind that Arcana had created, and he had grown from childhood. It was strange to look inwards for knowledge, but it wasn’t hard.
It was as if a dam had been created in his head, only now broken open by his probing. Knowledge of all kinds flashed through his mind. Words, pictures, and even a few flashes of other ancient’s memories rushed out into his mind, settling in place as if they’d existed since he was born. Samuel pushed the vast majority of the new knowledge to the side, focusing on his newfound language.
The meaning of the runes was clear as day to him after that. After taking a few more minutes to walk a full circle around the brazier to read them properly, he came to a stop to ponder them, rubbing his chin thoughtfully.
Here lies the body of Isip, protected from those who would possess him, until his Champion may come to claim their rights.
He wasn’t sure what it meant by claiming his rights, but his next step seemed clear. He took off the rather nice blue robe and set it on the ground nearby along with his satchel so that they wouldn’t get too dirty or torn by what he did next. He returned to the brazier, placed his hands on the stone sides, and poured his mana into the structure.
Immediately, he felt a change in the stone. He heard something move with a loud clunk, and then several pieces of the brazier began to slide apart. Even the metal frame at the top split apart, as the brazier broke into four pieces and pulled back. Stepping hurriedly back to clear the space, Samuel noticed the dark hole in the ground that was now revealed. Even now, he could sense the life force radiating from the opening.
Inching closer, Samuel peered down. It was so dark that he couldn’t see anything, and every attempt to bring fire to his hands failed, thanks to the anti-magic field. Heaving another sigh, he pulled a torch and flint from his pocket space, taking a few minutes to light the sap-covered stick. The light flared up, illuminating the space and revealing a short drop of five or so feet below him. The ground was more of the intricately carved stone.
As his feet hit the ground, he looked around and quickly jumped back with a cry of shock. The runes had said that the body of Isip lay here, so Samuel was expecting to see a sarcophagus or at least a mummy there. Instead, there was the body of a man with long brown hair, bright white eyes, and a white robe sitting in a stone chair. The body was facing the entrance, so Samuel had ended up eye to eye with it.

2021.10.20 01:20 Competitive_Mix6928 Questionable attraction?

Hello Gentleman, been a little curios over something that happened at the gym. It’s chest day for me do my warm up and get to work. Do some incline DB bench press and move onto to low cable fly’s. Now the cables at my gym is like these pods with a cable on 4 sides 1 a lat pull down, horizontal cable pull, a cable ontop for triceps and then a free adjustable height cable so clearly I want to use 2 of those. This girl I had an eye on since I started my streak had walked up to the other side cable and I used gym sign language (iykyk) asking if she was using the one I walked up to and she wave no and when we made eye contact for a mere second she like smiled and giggled? I had headphones in and I kept a straight face cuz it was late at night and wanted to get the grind in .(this day I was 16 days in, I usually here woman attraction starts kicking in around 2 weeks but on the contrary confidence to take advantage of this attraction doesn’t really hit til the 1 month mark) so because she was using the other side I kinda just stood there figuring out how to do low cable chest flies with only 1 side and I think she had noticed cuz I felt her staring at me and she was doing triceps on the other side so I do a set on each side of my chest now when I do the side facing away from the mirror I notice she moved from the side cable I wanted to use to a top cable and kept doing triceps, before I could take advantage another gym bro took up the spot so I kept doing my thing and I’m not giving her to much mind cuz she’s in spandex short shorts and a very loose shirt and while I’m grinding she’s repeatedly like checking herself out in the mirror and positioning her backside towards me while she doing triceps push downs and lifting her loose shirt to almost atop her sports bra showing off her figure in the mirror I guess but like I said I wasn’t paying her much mind I was watching in my peripherals though, after I finish chest I do some cardio and towards the end I noticed she leaves and about 3 minutes I Finnish, go to the bathroom and then head out so about 5-7 minutes have passed and I’m walking to my car and a set of headlights flicker on as I walk by to my car and it’s the same girl and she drives by as I get in my car and then I realize could this be. Semen retention at work? Let me know thoughts like I said I was 16 days on this day I’m 21 years old kind of skinny but been putting on some muscle. Thanks don’t shoot the new guy to the forum I’ve been doing nofap for a very hot minute but very subtlety.

2021.10.20 01:20 tianyu84 6 month old waking up after 3 hours and refusing to go back to sleep

My almost 6 month old goes to bed around 7 pm each night and is able to put himself to sleep. He wakes up for about 2 feeds each night. We try to follow a rule of feeding him a big meal about 5 hours after the last feeding before bedtime, and then 4 hours after that feeding.
Lately he's been waking up about 3 hours after the last feeding and will not put himself back to sleep. I don't think he's hungry as he'll fall asleep if we rock him, but we're trying not to go back to that. He will fall asleep though if we give him his big feed for the night. Is this teething or what can we do? I would love to go down to 1 feed a night, but this is going in the opposite direction.

My V is pretty boring looking right now, but I was able to utilise the games photo mode to pose and capture images really easily. You can grab these images and try them on your LookingGlass unit if you want to see them for yourself.

Hello everyone, hate to bother but there's this song I heard about a week ago that has been on my mind. Although I only heard it once from a Instagram post that got deleted. It's kind of a dramatic song that makes you seem like your having a flashback and it has something that sounds like a dun dun dun. I tried Google song search but it has failed me 😅😂 Thank you so much and I'll take any suggestions on what it can be. I know my chances of finding this song is slim but anything is appreciated 🥺
