    it’s almost 1 AM but after seeing some stuff come up on my dash about what has been taking place in Minneapolis this month & reading a lot of comments questioning the validity of the events I just wanted to clear some stuff up to the best of my ability as someone who is currently living in uptown -

    First off, on June 3rd SEVERAL undercover police shot and killed Winston Smith in a parking ramp located on Lake Street and Girard in Uptown Minneapolis. There has been SO little released to the public about this incident. In my personal experience, it was reported to me (by a doctor whom I was at an appointment with a few blocks away) at the time of the murder as an “active shooter incident.” I later found out that this claim was incredibly false & dangerous. I don’t know where or how this doctor got this information, they were only informing me so I could leave the clinic safely.

    On the very same morning of Winston’s murder (which took place around 2pm) the City of Minneapolis forcibly removed the barricades that had been up at George Floyd Square (GFS) or 38th & Chicago in the ~midtown area of the city where Floyd was murdered last May 25th 2020. Since that day, residents of the block and community have made GFS an autonomous zone. Meaning no government or police personnel have been allowed to step foot in it. The community has used it as a place of mourning and there have been many gatherings, celebrations, protests, etc. that have taken place there over the course of this year. During the trial of Derek Chauvin the phrase “no justice no street” was used heavily within the area and community to express that the members did not want the square to open back up without the demands of the community being met. (Literally every single person I have met or talked to about this issue cherishes GFS as a sacred area)

    Our mayor, Jacob Frey (pussy) took it upon himself and his city council members to ignore the demands of the community, and forcibly reopen the square in the early, early morning of June 3rd - later that afternoon Winston was murdered.

    In the weeks following Winston’s murder, a few (compared to the number for GF or Duante Wright) protests had taken place at the sight of his murder. It wasn’t until this past weekend 6/12-6/13, that more people began to gather as his funeral was held on those days. On the night of June 13th, people were gathered to celebrate Winston. They had barricaded the street with their cars and other objects and were playing games like volleyball and red light - green light when a man drove his vehicle full speed into the barricades to “try and jump them” (per his words in the criminal report). Which injured three people and killed 31 year old Deona Marie who was sitting on the sidewalk. I was not there that night but what from I have heard and seen, the police reacted incredibly slow to apprehend the driver and showed up in riot gear to address the protestors instead.

    Following Deona’s murder, the response by the community & police has heightened. Community gathered this week to celebrate what would have been her 32nd birthday only to be met with mass arrests and tear gas (something we are very used to at this point). I have heard reports of the guard being called in but I have yet to see any with my own eyes so I don’t feel comfortable stating it as a fact HOWEVER, I’m sure they’ll be here by the weekend as our mayor quite literally has them on speed dial.

    Although this post is incredibly long, it is only a brief summary of what has been happening in this city for over a year now. Everything is so much deeper and more painful than it seems and than I can even explain. All I can try to articulate is just how much our leadership has failed us and continues to do so. Our police force, instead of growing to be understanding (or afraid of consequence even), has become more hostile and angry. It didn’t stop at George. We need help.

    Here are confirmed go fund me links for Deona & Winston’s family:

    Após o jogo de verdade ou desafio, ainda havia passado um tempo na piscina com Arthur e Calliandra. Já havia conversado com a menina antes, de forma que sentiu que já poderia considerá-la uma amiga ali. Após todas aquelas emoções, o tanto de álcool ingerido, tudo o que ela não conseguia agora era dormir. Levantou-se com cuidado e foi até onde sabia que a ruiva estaria dormindo, e sussurrou em seu ouvido.   ❛❛ Callie, está dormindo? Queria fofocar. ❜❜   E também tomar água e um remédio para dor de cabeça, mas principalmente fofocar.  @calliandrc​

    A Moment in Time- Ch 14

    MASTERPOST

    OH HI THERE LOOK AT THAT IT'S ALREADY JUNE. HOW COULD THAT HAVE HAPPENED???

    yes, I know. I disappeared off the face of the earth. forgive me?

    important housekeeping- Orthrus is the name of Cerbrus' brother from Greek Mythology. Asclepius is a snake. and doctor dude. so I pulled on that a lil. ok, on with the chapter!

    Chloé had been surprised to see the text from Marinette after her friend had gone off to meet an obscure friend earlier that day. Yet, there, blinking on her phone, was a text from her best friend there was only one word, but it was enough. There, blinking up at her was the word TONIGHT. Marinette really wanted to take Gabriel Agreste down on a school night, right before finals week.

    Of course she did.

    Fuck.

    With one last, woeful glance at her open notes, Chloé called her transformation and flew to the Eiffel tower.

    When she got there, the blonde was met with both Apate and Lady Tyche.

    There, sitting at their feet, was Asclepius. The snake was leaning back, taking in the night air. His dark eyes glittered behind his mask, and the lyre at his side was almost unnoticeable in the darkness. As Princess Meli landed, Apate and Tyche sent her smiles, while Asclepius nodded. Meli gave a weak smile in response.

    “Hey A, did you have to choose right before finals? I have to study!” Apate snorted at her best friend’s indignation.

    “Sorry, Meli. I just…we can’t let this flaming bastard ruin our lives anymore. He tried to Akumatize me tonight, and I won’t have it.”

    “I’m sorry, what?” Apate winced before turning to face her friend.

    “I almost got akumatized. It didn’t go well. I am going to take down Hawkmoth one way or another. It is up to you if you want to join me. It has to be now before he can do any more damage. I for one don’t want to spend one more minute in a city where Hawkmoth rules our lives.” As the two newer heroes listened, the sound of someone landing behind them could be heard.

    The group turned to find another miraculous wielder there, his long brown hair held back in a low ponytail, and the dark brown suit barely noticeable against the night sky. “ah, good Orthrus, you made it!” the teen nodded to the vigilante, before giving his fellow miraculous wielders a dramatic bow.

    “omg. Really? That’s why you wanted me to dye your hair!” Princess Meli’s squeal was met with a dead-eyed stare by her best friend.

    “well, why else, but to be completely unrecognizable.” The familiar voice that drawled from the dog vigilante’s mouth had the others quickly connecting the dots and laughing in recognition of Adrien Agreste, now named Orthrus, the vigilante of Loyalty. He strode over, his steps near silent on the tower beam. “now, what are we going to do about my father, Apate? Lady Tyche?” the two smiled at him, before turning back to the group.

    “This is a stealth operation. As you all know, the Moth Miracle stone is one of the more flexible jewels. This means that the only identifying part about it is that it will glow when a strong emotion emerges. This means that we will be splitting up into two groups.” Here, Apate paused. Tyche was obviously well informed about what the operation was going to entail. Meli, while not in the loop, was more familiar with their plans and was obviously connecting the dots. The newest two were looking back and forth in confusion. “Meli, you and Tyche will be pulling the public's attention to yourselves. While you two pretend to fight an Akuma, courtesy of Bunnix, the rest of us will be slipping into the Agreste Mansion. Asclepius, you will be on Mayora duty. Keep her contained and be prepared to use your power, remember, it can only go back 15 minutes. Orthrus and I will try to corner Hawkmoth while he is distracted. It is imperative that Meli and Tyche keep the battle going against Bunnix until we are sure that Hawkmoth and Mayora are out of commission.” Tyche nodded.

    “Meli and I will keep people distracted, but we need you to be fast, Apate. That means,” she turned to Orthrus and Asclepius, “you two need to get your plan straightened out before you enter the Agreste mansion. If there is anything that goes wrong you inform Apate immediately. Keep your com lines open. I know that you haven’t had as much practice, but Apate has been doing this for years. Rely on her and watch her back. Most importantly though, everyone goes in, everyone goes out. No one is left behind. And kick Hawkmoth’s ass.” The newer miraculous holders were listening with wider and wider eyes as Lady Tyche laid out her instructions. Apate may be the one with the (little known) reputation of being blunt and violent, but Lady Tyche was obviously used to giving instructions and being obeyed, immediately. As the weight of the situation made itself truly known to the newer section of the team, Bunnix alighted on the tower beam with a wild grin.

    “ready when you are, Lady. We should be able to mess around for a few hours before things have to get serious.” Here, Bunnix turned her gaze on Apate. “if you need anything, give a shout.” Apate nodded solemnly at her friend, before turning to her team.

    “We move now. once we get in position, Tyche and Bunnix will start the battle.” With one last backward glance, Apate led her team off to the lair of Hawkmoth.

    “how long do you think this will take, A?”

    “Ty, I wish I could give you an answer. Right now I really just want to get this done so I can sleep.”

    “A, as much as I agree with that statement, please don’t rush.”

    “I’ll be careful, Ty. I always am.”

    “Bullshit.”

    “rude.”

    “but true.”

    “I mean…maybe.” A pause, “ok Tyche, we’re in position in Adrien’s room. Whenever you’re ready.”

    “see you on the other side, Apate.”

    “Stay safe.”

    “you too.”

    Tim was expecting a quiet night, curled up on his bed with a book Dick had asked him to read ages ago when the screaming started. He bolted up and flung open his door. With shaking fingers, the teen CEO darted across the great room of the hotel room. As he shoved the balcony doors open, Tim’s eyes widened. There, on the street, were two heroes. They were…flying. They were actually flying? He thought Marinette had given him a basic rundown of the situation here in Paris, but as he watched the two flying girls, Tim Drake knew in his gut that tonight was going to get a lot worse before it got better for them. Edging back along the wall of the balcony, the out of costume vigilante watched with wide eyes as the heroes darted in and out of the fog that was at the center of the screaming.

    Apate really hated Gabriel Agreste. As she followed Orthrus through the halls of the manor, Asclepius stayed at her back. When they arrived at the library, Orthrus guided Asclepius to the hidden window that would give him a vantage point t look down on the upcoming battle. “wait.” As Apate halted the group's movement, the two others turned to look at her. “Asclepius, once you see Mayora enter the grotto, only then do you start your entry.” He looked at her in confusion. With a small smile, Apate gestured to the window. “this is your entry point. When you find Mayora, you enter here. Keep her contained, and keep her distracted. Orthrus and I will handle the rest.” When the Snake holder had nodded, Apate smiled. “this is it, I know that you both have worked hard recently to take on these roles. That said, we proceed with the utmost caution. Keep your coms in and keep them on. I want constant communication. I know that this is the long game. We are all in. now we need to make sure that we all leave. Understood?”

    “understood.”

    “Copy”

    “good. Now, we enter silence now. Orthrus and I are going to get in position, Asclepius be careful. Now is not the time to show our hand.”

    Lady Tyche hadn’t had this much fun in years. As Bunnix sat in the middle of the column of fog rolling down Parisian streets, Lady Luck giggled slightly at Princess Meli’s look of shock. The rabbit holder had placed fog machines in the vicinity of the Grande Paris Hotel. With their careful plotting, Bunnix and Tyche had made sure that the square would be filled with synthetic fog. As it spread, the few pedestrians on Paris’ streets started to scream. The midnight air took on the feeling that only ever came when there was an Akuma attack. With a shout of glee, Bunnix continued to spin herself around on her motorbike. “are we going to attack?” Meli’s question broke Tyche out her musings. It wasn’t uncommon for the hero to stay back and observe the Akumas, and she had been taking advantage of that up till that point. With a sigh, Tyche tore her gaze away from the fog.

    “I guess we have to, don’t we?” Meli giggled at her friend’s reluctance."

    “only if you want this to work.” Tyche snorted at the Bee’s sarcasm.

    “go ahead and ‘sneak’ over to the other end of the square. Once you get there, I’ll dive in and do a few spins with Bunnix. When I come flying out, wait a few seconds and then go into the exact center. Knowing Bun, that’s exactly where she’ll be.” Meli nodded in understanding and started to make her way across the square.

    As Lady Tyche watched the other blonde slip away, she took a deep breath. They needed to stretch this out for as long as they could. Apate needed as much time as she could buy.

    Apate and Orthrus were settled against a shadowed part of the wall in the grotto when Gabriel Agreste strode in. the blonde man was clutching at this shirt where he had a purple jewel pined there. “is that?” Orthrus’ question mirrored her own thoughts.

    “I…I think so.” Tensing slightly, Apate settled further into her perch. Asclepius’ voice came quietly in her ear.

    “Apate, you need to take the stone now. once he is Hawkmoth, Gabriel will have a sword. We don’t want to do more damage than necessary.”

    “Ascle-“

    “Apate you have to trust me. Please.”

    “Are you sure?”

    “There is no other way, this has to happen before i can take out Mayora.” Apate sucked in a sharp breath.

    “how many times?”

    “so far? six. It’s about to be seven if you don’t get a move on. Your window is closing.” Before Asclepius had finished his sentence, Apate has risen.

    As she lept to one of the beams above the grotto, Orthrus slunk across the ground until he was behind Gabriel. As Apate started her descent towards the villain, Orthrus sprung up, and incapacitated him. in one single move, Apate, Guardian of the Miracle Box, had reclaimed the Butterfly stone of Transmission.

    In her ear a moment later, Apate could hear the sounds of Mayora being taken down by Asclepius.

    Lady Tyche and Princess Meli were in their fifth rotation through Bunnix’s merry fog funhouse when Apate’s voice cut through their line. “we have reclaimed both miraculous, and the police have been called. It’s finished. Hawkmoth is gone.”

    The three heroes let up a cheer and set about putting the square to rights. Once Bunnix had shut off the fog machines, Lady Tyche looked around and smiled. Lifting into the air, Lady Luck threw her yoyo up and called “Miraculous!” as the Ladybugs flew through the night, things started to turn themselves back to what they had been a mere hour ago. When the square had returned to normal, the two heroes took off into the air. It was time to celebrate. Hawkmoth had been defeated at last.

    Poor Tim! i wonder what the poor boy thought of THAT show? (also, i keep imagining Alix dressed in her bunnix suit speeding off into the night with that fog machine going... i bet she had a blast!)

    I didn't realize I hadn't watched the latter part of s1 of Black Summer

    it's so hard on the nerves & sad - so much better crafted than any walking dead stuff! - I guess I stopped and then later imagined I'd finished it.

    them dropping s2 is making me watch a lot of s1 all in a row

    This Juneteenth, we remember the Kings, Queens and Guerillas that resisted white supremacist terror and enslavement for decades and centuries before 1865. Whether it was Queen Nzinga, King Zumbi, Jean Jacques Dessalines, Queen Nanny, Nat Turner or Harriet Tubman, we have always been our own liberators!
