UW: The Battle of Naridia



Notable Participants: Poseidon, Jayden and Bethany Zeneca, Serena, Sacrifice, Vepar

The Battle of Naridia was a skirmish that took place at the underwater city of Naridia, several miles off the coast of Jordan. It was the first multi-racial battle fought in Heaven's history, pitting Angels, Naridians (merpeople) and Olympians against the murpeople of the Southern Lands. Because this battle was fought in secret, it is not considered part of the war between Heaven and the Southern Lands.

In an attempt to please Yin and Leviathan, the fallen angel Vepar took it upon herself to seduce Poseidon, the arrogant king of Naridia. Upon their marriage he bequeathed half of his power, and against the advice of his people, he allowed her people, the mur, to inhabit Naridia.

The gluttonous, carnivorous mur first drove away all nearby aquatic life, affecting the coastal economy. The mur then demanded the Naridians hunt for them, and violence was often the punishment for those who refused or failed. When Vepar began ordering the executions of non-compliant Naridians, Poseidon, unable to overpower his wife, reached out to Yang for help.

Yang agreed to help Poseidon on the condition that Angels were granted free access to the Atherean, and were allowed to interact with Naridians. He reluctantly agreed. Poseidon's estranged cousins, Zeus and Odin, also volunteered their assistance. Jayden and Bethany Zeneca were allowed to participate in their secret identities; Jayden shared a mutual attraction with the Naridian Serena, although neither acted on it due to the negative repercussions such a relationship would bring..

Three hundred Angels, Olympians, and Asgardians were led by Thunder and Lightning into Naridia. The battle was incredibly bloody. Roughly half of the city was destroyed in the battle and more than eighty of Heaven's forces were killed. In the end, Heaven was victorious. The Murpeople were routed and Bethany was forced to kill Vepar.

Zeus lent Poseidon some of his people to aid in the reconstruction of Naridia. Odin, Zeus, Poseidon and Yang then drafted and signed the Friendship Accord, ending centuries-long tensions between the Naridians and the rest of Heaven.

America: A True Story About Hatred and Unity

I wanted fast food tonight. That was all. I found myself at Burger King to pick up my wife's order. I was a few cars deep when I spotted the Confederate flag. I surreptitiously snapped a few photos. This was going to be a very different story. When I pull out of Burger King, it turns out there's more than one. In fact, there are four trucks, each flying variations of the flag. I have to go around the front of them to avoid an accident. They're parked right in the middle of the road. As I drive around them, each person in the vehicle makes it a point to ensure I see them. I do. They see me too. When I get to McDonald's (which is in the same lot), I learn that they're not taking debit cards at the moment. Terrific. I wanted chicken nuggets and instead, I get a run-in with the new Confederacy. So I make my way back to Burger King, again appearing in full view of the trucks. I place my order, get it, pay, and pull out. Then one of the

The Long Road Home

I will end you tonight. No, wait. That's not where the story starts. The story starts two and a half years before this, when Michelle (referred to as Michelle for legal reasons because SATAN was too heavily trademarked) reached out to me by Facebook. She mentioned that we played the same Facebook game and she wanted to say hi. I had never, in fact, even heard of the Facebook game. But I was freshly broken out of a relationship and she was pretty with a good body so I said "Hurr, okay." Conversation ensues. She tells me we came up in the same place. We did not come up in the same place. We spent one night in San Francisco talking. But I really wanted to sleep with her. So, "Hurr, okay." Fast forward a few months. I've left Missouri for the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I've settled into the ass end of Lynnwood, a suburb of Seattle. The apartment was so bad that the landlord wrote the mold on the wall off as "crayon coloring

Wave Rocketbook Reviewed

I love writing by hand, and I love notebooks. I'll often devote entire budgets to them and when Officemax has one of their twenty-five cent sales, I'll buy them out. I often draft by hand, finding that the scene comes together more purely when it flows from a pen rather than a keyboard. So when DailyDot advertised a durable new type of notebook that you could use over and over again for the cheap price of twenty-five (thirty after shipping) US Dollars? I'm down. The Wave Rocketbook is meant to be elegant in its design and simple in its execution. The instructions come on the bag itself, and only the pen and notebook are included. The pen feels like any other, so you have to be careful not to mix it into your collection or you will end up marking your notebook with the wrong pen (like I did). The ink is erasable, which is a bonus. A place to put the pen would've been nice, but it clips easily, if not securely, into the ringed binding. The paper is thick and
