Chapter 24: Top Dog
Boys: Shawn
Girls: Heather, Lindsay
Episode 24: Top Dog
"Last time on Total Drama Action," Chris said over a shot of the film lot. "A sweet, surprise package from the outside world left Heather bitter," Heather was shown looking at her jawbreaker with disgust, "and the cast got a taste of life in zero-gravity conditions," the four were seen floating in the space shuttle.
"But all was not well in the universe as Shawn and Courtney continued to spitefully hate each other," the two mentioned were shown making comments at each other.
"In the end, Heather won the challenge," she was shown to be covered in barf, "but lost her sweet smell. Lindsay fixed things between Courtney and Shawn" she, Shawn and Courtney were shown talking, "but lost her chance to stay in the game almost. Thanks to a tiebreaker, Courtney lost the game, but won a Lame-osine ride back to the real world?" She was seen puking into her pot and entering the limo.
"Can Lindsay breathe once more now that she barely got lucky?" The dumb princess was shown in the confessional.
"Will Shawn be able to carry on without his sole alliance?" The conspiracy nut was shown looking at his tinfoil hat.
The scene flashed to Chris in front of the cast trailers. "All this and more, on today's out-of-this world episode of, Total! Drama! Action!"
The episode opened on a shot of the morning sun before panning down to the cast trailers. The camera centered on the girls', then cut inside as Lindsay woke up.
"That was a nice dream I had," Lindsay talked to herself while sitting up in her bunk. "Marshmallow pillows and candy rainbow pieces have never been so tasty."
She soon looked around for a bit. "Where did Heather go? I thought she would be back from showering last night."
The door opened and Heather walked in, though she was looking groggy and tired.
"Where were you all night?" Lindsay asked her roommate. "Were you out on a secret trip thanks to your immunity? Let me guess where you went. The cheese factory, Niagara Falls, or did you go to the mall?"
"Zip it!" Heather shouted. "I spent the entire evening in the bathroom."
"Why did you sleep in there?" Lindsay asked.
"That ghost slash vampire fighting freak soaked the last of the gumbo on me!" Heather complained. "It took me hours to wash the food off and make sure I smelled exquisite."
"I don't blame Shawn for what he did," Lindsay shot a glare at the queen bee's direction. "You made him get into a fight with Courtney. Things could've gotten worse if I didn't solve their problem."
"Shut up, Lame-say," Heather insulted. "That homeschooled reject is going down, and once I deal with him and you, I'll claim the grand prize."
"I have no idea how Amy could tolerate you," Lindsay told her. "You worked with her, sure, but you decided to strategize behind her back just because she had standards."
"Amy and the other contestants mean nothing to me," Heather said. "Just watch your back!"
Confessional: Heather
"I knew I'd make it to the end. Big shocker," Heather filed her nails. "I just can't believe the zombie weirdo and brainless blondie made it. So they may as well just give me the check, I mean come on. I think we all know who's gonna win."
Confessional Ends
Heather yawned and laid down on her bunk. Just then, the trailer door burst open. Chris walked in and promptly and joyfully blew a few notes on a bugle into the room. "Wake up, sleepyheads!" he announced with glee. "Breakfast is served, along with today's movie challenge. You've got ten minutes to get your sorry butts down there!" He backed out of the room.
"I bet today's genre will be "guy in a coma" movie," Heather suggested as she lied down.
"I doubt it, but I'm just going to eat breakfast," Lindsay said before leaving.
The scene flashed over to the craft services tent. "Wow Chef!" Shawn said in awe as the camera cut to a close-up of his plate as Chef ladled a portion of something that was pale yellow, lumpy, and slightly hairy onto it. "These scrambled eggs actually look pretty good!"
Chef looked at the theorist, then burst out into raucous laughter. "Scrambled eggs," he repeated before resuming his laughter and even falling over.
Shawn shot his food with a worried look and put it back before walking away. "I'll just eat on the leaves I've gathered."
Confessional: Shawn
"The way Chef was laughing made me believe that the scrambled eggs were too good to be true," Shawn confessed. "Or maybe they were poisoned. Or maybe they were drugged with sleeping medicine. But worst of all-"
Confessional Ends
Shawn sat next to Heather, who stopped eating once she saw him. "I gotta say, you smell pretty good," the theorist told her teasingly.
"It's just lavender soap," Heather glared. "I used three bottles of it thanks to your stunt."
"Now you know how I felt when you messed with my mind and got Courtney eliminated," Shawn said. "Zombies may eat brains, but they don't have any control over what they're doing."
"It's always supernatural stuff with you," Heather groaned. "I'm stunned Jo even likes you, but it makes sense. You two are ugly and can't dress fashionably to save your lives."
Shawn furiously got in Heather's face. "She likes me for me, and I won't change myself for her."
Confessional: Shawn
"It's one thing to be manipulative, but to insult my feelings for Jo? That's crossing the line," Shawn ranted. "Like Jo did before, I will make sure Heather loses."
Confessional Ends
The scene cut to Lindsay approaching the serving counter, only to look confused when she didn't see Chef. The cook then lifted his arm up and dropped a ladle of fake eggs onto her tray.
"Scrambled eggs?" Lindsay wondered as she looked at her plate. "It's the second episode all over again." Chef broke out laughing again behind the counter, but he managed to sit back up and wipe a tear out of his eye.
Lindsay sat down next to Shawn. "Hey Shawn. Where's your food."
"A heads up," Shawn whispered. "The eggs aren't cooked well. They're just fake."
"They looked real," Lindsay slid her tray away.
"So anyways, me and you are up against Heather, Lindsay" Shawn told her. "I know what you're gonna say."
"Let's team up and take her down," Lindsay grinned.
"It's almost like you read my mind," Shawn said, "but without being an alien."
Confessional: Lindsay
"Shawn is really cute," Lindsay admitted. "His constant nagging about his theories do bug me and he could really use a shower every once in a while, but I can see why Jo is into him."
Confessional Ends
"What can I do about the eggs?" Lindsay asked Shawn. "Chef will totally kill me with his eyes if I throw it away."
"Leave it to me," Shawn told Lindsay.
Shawn grabbed the eggs with his two hands. He mushed them together and created a ball out of the eggs. Twirling it on his finger for a brief moment, he tossed the ball away and it landed in the pot Chef was using to cook a meal. The cook stopped whistling to see what slipped in, but went about his business without a care.
"I can't believe he didn't even care," Lindsay commented.
"I don't know what Chef uses to make his food, but it's probably leftovers," Shawn said.
"Attention, cast!" Chris said, the camera cutting to him standing on the other side of the tent with a blue-and-yellow macaw perched on his shoulder. It squawked as the three contestants walked up.
"What is that parrot doing on your shoulder?" Lindsay asked.
"That's my new BFFF!" Chris explained with a grin. "Best Flying Friend Forever. That brings us to today's movie genre: the Animal Buddy flic." The three teens gave him skeptical looks.
Confessional: Chris
"You try coming up with twenty-two movie genres," Chris accused in the confessional. "It was either animal buddy, or guy in a coma movies."
Confessional Ends
"The hallmark of any good animal buddy flick is the human-animal bonding," Chris explained as his macaw watched him. "First, the human and the animal start out as enemies. Then, through many misadventures, the animal and human grow to care about each other," the camera zoomed in on the macaw as it seemed to be touched by the host's words, "and become fast friends."
The parrot rubbed Chris' chin affectionately with its head, and the host responded by extending a finger to rub the bird. However, the macaw decided to playfully chomp on the finger and squawked laughingly as the human winced in pain.
"You guys just hang tight for a sec, 'kay?" Chris told the cast with a calm look on his face. He walked off camera, and the castmates watched in mild horror as sounds of an attack were heard. Feathers flew, squawks were heard, and the host yelled "Let go of my coif!"
He walked back into view moments later, brushing the feathers off his shoulder but ignoring the ones in his now-ruffled hair. "So...where were we...?" he asked idly before smiling in realization. "Right! The first animal buddy movie challenge will be to pick an animal and teach it to be just like you," he explained as the camera panned across the wary faces of Heather, Shawn, and Lindsay. "That shouldn't be too hard, since you're all animals." A rimshot played, but none of the cast were amused.
Chris got serious again. "The cast member whose animal most resembles them at the end, wins the challenge." The contestants were shown again, and Lindsay in particular was looking pleased.
Confessional: Lindsay
"I love animals, especially dogs," Lindsay gushed in the confessional. "I even have one of my own. One time, I told my math teacher that his new hair piece looks like my dog's butt. But he totally took it the wrong way. My dog has the cutest curly little butt!" the blonde explained. "It was a compliment!"
Confessional Ends
The footage resumed at a shot of the contestants outside. "Alright cast," Chris announced, "time to meet your future BFFFFFs!" He motioned behind him, where something large and covered in an orange tarp was stationed between him and Chef. "Best Furry, Feathered, or Finned Friends, Forever!" he explained further, earning an eyeroll from the cook as he pulled away the tarp.
The four teens gasped as the four cages were uncovered. The camera focused on each animal one-by-one. First was a brown bear that roared at the cast, then a bigger cage holding a rather agitated looking shark, then a smaller cage holding a raccoon that tried to claw at them, and finally a bird cage holding a chameleon that rolled out its tongue.
"Pick an animal," Chris told the cast, "and get training. You have three hours."
"I got the raccoon!" Heather said immediately, shoving Shawn to the ground and dashing forward towards the small cage before either of the others could react.
Confessional: Heather
"I had to pick the raccoon," Heather reasonably told the viewers. "The chameleon is gross, the bear is huge, and the shark is murderous."
Confessional Ends
The scene returned to Shawn and Lindsay standing with the other animals. "I'll take the chameleon," the blonde said. "If it can change colors, I can't pass that up."
"And I'll take the bear," Shawn announced. "It has a lesser chance of eating me alive in comparison to the shark."
Chris saw that the final three have made their decision and chosen their animals, but noticed that the shark was lonely.
"So it seems they left out the shark," Chris mused. "I paid good money to bring all four of the animals out here, and I won't let any of them go to waste." He thought to himself. "What to do, what to do."
Ezekiel suddenly ran up to Chris. "Hey Chris. I'm here to help judge the animals."
"Ezekiel! Great timing," Chris piped up. "Say, do you want to pet sit for an animal while we wait for the judging part?"
"Uh, sure," Ezekiel agreed. "Which one do I have to watch over?"
"Chef, bring the pet here!" Chris ordered, causing the cook to drag the shark over to the home schooled guy."
Ezekiel's eyes almost popped out. "I have to take care of a shark? They're dangerous looking eh!"
"That's not my problem," Chris laughed while departing. "Just make sure it doesn't try to hurt the other animals. They didn't get picked, so they're sorta jealous."
All Ezekiel could do was gulp at his predicament.
Heather and the raccoon were sitting on a table. "I don't know if you've been tested for rabies, but I have my eyes on you, so don't try any funny business."
The raccoon snarled at her. "Hey hey! I don't want any trouble. I just want to win this challenge."
Heather pulled out a box of doggy treats. "If you behave, I'll feed this to you." This caused the raccoon to sit up straight, and Heather gave it a treat. "Good."
After devouring the treat, the raccoon held out its paw, causing Heather to awkwardly shake it.
The camera went to the chameleon, who's colors changed from red to bright yellow. It was supposed to change to Lindsay's hair color, but it didn't obey.
"That's not the color," Lindsay told her animal. "It's supposed to be blonde, not bright yellow. Let's try this again." The chameleon turned dark green in response.
The scene flashed to Shawn and the bear inside the service tent. "I know something that we share," Shawn told the bear. "We both like food, but the only difference is that I can cook and you can't."
The bear growled at that, causing Shawn to retract. "I'm not saying this to insult you. I'm just saying that I teach you how to cook. That way, you won't have to eat out of the trash can."
The bear smiled in response.
Ezekiel was looking at the shark still in its tank. He touched the tank with his hand, and after the shark chomped its jaws, he recoiled back in fear.
"You know what I like to do?" Ezekiel said. "Play songs on my harmonica."
The home schooled guy took his harmonica out and played "Ocean Man" by Ween. Just as he was going to get to the third stanza, the shark howled in boredom and pretended to fall asleep by rolling over.
Ezekiel stopped playing to see what the shark just did and sighed. "I know music doesn't kill animals eh. I'm not that naive."
The scene flashed to Heather and her raccoon lounging about. "I've already taught you manners, but I don't have anything else to do."
The queen bee's face lit up with inspiration. "I know." She lifted up the raccoon. "Want to help me sabotage the others? I'll give you the entire box of treats if you do."
The raccoon thought about it, but complied.
Confessional: Heather
"This will almost be like sabotaging my competition in the ballet competition, only this time, it's on a reality show," Heather said.
Confessional Ends
Lindsay's chameleon was now orange-colored. "My hair looks like it's colored orange, but that's not the case," Lindsay expressed her frustration.
Behind her, Heather had hooked her raccoon to a fishing line. She swung it over Lindsay's head, allowing for the raccoon to use a can of spray paint on Lindsay's hair.
Seeing what color the hair was now, the chameleon turned white.
"That's definitely wrong," Lindsay said while the raccoon resprayed her hair brown, causing the chameleon to turn into that color. "Wrong again!" Her hair got sprayed pink. "My hair isn't even close to pink!"
Not wanting to be exposed, Heather quickly reeled her raccoon back and took off.
The camera flashed back to the kitchen. The bear was stirring pancake mix and flour in a big bowl as Shawn watched him.
"I work in a bakery, so making cake is my first lesson in cooking," Shawn instructed. "I need to use the bathroom. Keep stirring until I come back."
After Shawn left, the bear decided to search the cabinets for more ingredients. The raccoon, who was under the table, crept from under there and stood near the bowl.
They took out a bottle of maple syrup, and quickly squirted it all onto the bowl. As soon as the raccoon was done, they went back to hiding when the bear came back with the ingredients.
The bear added some sugar into their bowl and resumed stirring the mix, unaware of the syrup. Heather saw her pet return back and they smiled at their sabotage.
Meanwhile, Ezekiel was bringing a set of books with him. "Alright, shark. I think you'd like to read a story."
He took out "The History of Canada" and turned to page one. "This book is one of my favorites. It describes how Canada was made."
Seeing the book that was picked, the shark silently whined before taking out some earplugs and placing them into their ears. Afterwards, they faked a smile just to show that they're paying attention.
"I knew you'd like the story," Ezekiel looked up from his book, unaware of the fact that the shark wasn't listening.
A flash took the scene to a stock shot of the film lot before another cut took it to Ezekiel, Chef, and Chris sitting at a judge's table, the contestants and their animal buddies waiting around in front of it. "Alright cast," Chris announced, "time to judge the animal buddies."
"Why does the bear have frosting on their lips?" Lindsay asked Shawn after seeing the animal lick their lips.
"It's a secret," Shawn replied.
"Heather!" Chris called, earning the attention of the mean girl and her partner. "You and your raccoon are up first!"
"About that," Heather walked up. "I didn't teach my raccoon much of anything," she said, causing Chris to frown at her.
Heather soon whispered to her raccoon, and before anyone else knew it, the raccoon sprung up and snatched Ezekiel's crochet hat.
"That's my hat you're taking!" Ezekiel protested as the raccoon returned to Heather.
"But I did teach it how to snatch and grab," Heather said.
Chris and Chef looked at each other and held up two signs with numbers on it. "Ten!" Chris announced with a smile.
Ezekiel revealed his score. "I give it a six personally!"
Heather glared at the boy and hurled his hat at his face.
"Alright chameleon," Chris said next, "give it all you got."
The chameleon stood on Lindsay's shoulder and turned its color blonde like the girl's hair color.
The three judges clapped and gave Lindsay an eight.
"Shawn," Chris told the remaining contestant. "Time to see what your bear cooked up." He opened the pot and saw a chocolate cake with maple syrup surrounding it. "Why is there maple syrup?"
"I don't know," Shawn shrugged. "The bear must've put it in as a surprise." He got slapped in the head by the bear. "What? I didn't give you any syrup."
Chef took the first bite. "This is an eight. The cake is good, but it gets hard to scrape off your teeth."
Chris was next. "Nine out of ten. I'd like the dessert better if you had properly planned it out."
Ezekiel was the last one. "Maple syrup goes great with everything," he smiled. "Especially cake. This scored ten points!"
"If it makes us look good, I applaud you for your skills," Shawn complimented the bear.
"Points have been tallied," Chris announced. "And the winner of the first challenge is Shawn!"
"Yes!" Shawn cheered, but noticed Ezekiel still eating the cake. "Uh, Ezekiel, are you gonna share with us?"
Ezekiel stopped eating when he heard him. "It is your cake, so yeah."
"I do get first dibs," Chris grabbed a piece before turning to look at the camera. "Be right back," he said with a wink.
(Commercial break)
The scene faded back in to a shot of a dirt road running through some unidentified forest just as a bus pulled up. Its door opened with a hiss, and Chris stepped off. "Here we are gang! Don't you just love field trips?"
Following him off the bus were the raccoon and Heather, then Lindsay with her chameleon on her shoulder, and finally Shawn who had to pull his bear through by the paw.
"The woods? Again?" Heather asked.
"Your next challenge is to find your way back to the film lot," Chris told them as an angled shot of some trees nearby was shown. "A ten mile hike through these woods," the camera panned back to the castmates, "using only your animal buddies to guide you," the host added and the shot moved over to the raccoon, chameleon, and bear as they shrugged in ignorance.
"But be careful," Chris warned. "Several vicious and life-threatening traps have been set up along the way."
"Who would do such a thing?" Lindsay got scared.
"Hint; it's the only guy here," Heather said.
"It wasn't me, so obviously it was you," Shawn accused Chris.
"Correct!" Chris confirmed. "First one back wins invincibility. Shawn gets to shave thirty minutes off his final time for winning the first challenge. Everyone ready?"
"Wait, where's Ezekiel?" Lindsay asked. "And where's that shark?"
Chris chuckled a bit. "They're just spending time together."
Ezekiel was standing on a rock supervising his shark. "I only have a couple of hours left before I can go home, and it's just you and me."
He realized that his pet had brought more sharks into the stream of water. "What the heck? Chris never told me I had to watch all of you."
"See you all back at the film lot," Chris told them as he took a step onto the bus, "and good luck." He boarded the bus, and moments later the door slid shut and it sped off in a cloud of dust.
The three teens lingered in the area for a moment, then slowly split up. Heather and the raccoon went left, Lindsay and the chameleon went right, and Shawn and the bear stood still.
Shawn saw the girls going their own ways. "I know how to get back. I'm a bit of a navigator," he told her companion, who smiled at the knowledge.
Confessional: Shawn
"If you want to know the inside of my bunker, check it out!" Shawn said before pulling out blueprints and showing his first page. "Entrance chamber with eye-scan entry and remote lasers here, here, and here. And here and here. And here." He turned to the next page. "Master bedroom with bite-proof bedspread and weaponized pillows, and just in case…" the page turned, "this is the panic room." He flipped one last time. "And this is the panic room inside the panic room. Can't be too careful."
Confessional Ends
Heather and her raccoon were shown wandering through the woods and searching around.
"How did Jo manage to do this part of the challenge?" Heather rambled. "It was a stranded episode, but I still don't know which way she went."
The raccoon rolled their eyes, but still followed Heather.
The camera flashed to Lindsay walking through the woods. "No offense," she said to her companion, "but I think I should've picked the bear. Shawn must be lucky riding on their back."
Whether or not the chameleon got offended, they turned themselves invisible. "What the? Where did you go? I can't lose you!" Lindsay frantically ran about trying to locate her pet.
The camera moved to show her stepping on a string hidden behind a small shrub. It snapped, and a rock was launched out of a nearby bush by what looked like a small catapult. It hit Lindsay in the stomach, causing her to kneel over.
"Those were the traps," Lindsay wheezed out before collapsing.
Confessional: Lindsay
"One of the things I would've liked to do with my money is spend it on a lifetime supply of lip gloss, but I canceled it because there's more things to value," Lindsay confessed. "Like creating a brand new style of lip gloss."
Confessional Ends
Back with Ezekiel, he was sitting down as he watched the sharks racing each other. He pulled out some cake pieces from the one Shawn and his pet created and proceeded to eat them.
"I should've packed them in a bag if I didn't want syrup in the pockets, but I'll make do," Ezekiel shrugged before a shark swallowed all of his pieces. "Hey! If you wanted a piece, you should have just asked!" he said angrily.
This wasn't the smartest thing to say as the sharks chomped their jaws and went towards his direction.
Not wanting to potentially die, Ezekiel took out the last of his cake slices. "If you want these, go get them!" He threw them far away, causing the sharks to forget about Ezekiel and swim for the cake. "That was close."
The camera cut to Heather as he followed the raccoon. "Are you sure you know where we're going?" she asked. "I am not going to lose because of you leading us in circles."
The raccoon growled, but still stayed by her side.
"Of course I'll be upset," Heather replied. "I have plans for when I win the million bucks."
Confessional: Heather
"When I win, I'm thinking of my own spin-off series. The World According to Heather," Heather described it. "Luckily, I'm up against the dimwit and the nutcase. So they may as well just give me the money, I mean come on. I think we all know who's gonna win."
Confessional Ends
"Chameleon, where did you wander off to?" Lindsay yelled as she walked through the woods, "We have to be together so we can make it to the film lot."
The camera followed her to show that she was rapidly approaching a large patch of ground with a suspiciously large number of sticks and branches on it. "Could this be the way home?" As soon as Lindsay stepped onto the odd patch of ground, the branches snapped and she fell with a holler into the pit that had been hidden. "Booby traps!"
Shawn and his bear were strolling along. You know," he told his companion, "I can say that I trust you. If you were robotic or built by Chris and the producers, there wouldn't be any trust." The bear giggled happily.
The camera followed them as they came across a pile of leaves. As soon as they hit it, a net seemed to appear in the leaves under their feet and dragged them up in a suspended bundle.
"This isn't good. We have to get down," Shawn mentioned.
Confessional: Shawn
"I never thought I would see the day where I got captured in a booby trap," Shawn said.
Confessional Ends
"I have an idea!" Shawn said as he grabbed some nearby blueberries and gave them to the bear. "You eat as many blueberries as you can. If we're lucky, your increased weight can get us out."
Shawn took out a piece of wood bark carved into a knife. "I'll use this to cut holes into the trap just to help us."
The camera flashed to Heather and the raccoon outside a small cave. "I don't think there's a time for breaks," she told her companion. The raccoon snarled viciously and crawled into the cave. "As long as we're quick," she complied and followed her pet.
Inside the cave was the raccoon's surprisingly luxurious den. There was a reading corner, a kitchen, a ping-pong table, and even a big screen TV.
"You guys are civilized?" Heather said in shock upon seeing the den. "This resembles my house, but much smaller." A raccoon walked by and offered her a sandwich from a tray. "One sandwich? I'll take more than that," she said as she took three.
The raccoon, holding a paddle, chirped at her from the ping-pong table. "Ping pong? Like I would pass up on that offer," Heather said before going over.
The camera went to the pit Lindsay fell into. She had dirt all over her body along with leaves, her boots were gone, leaving her barefooted, and she was drifting into insanity.
"I'm so hungry," Lindsay croaked out. "What can I eat that's edible?"
She pulled out her lipstick and took the tube off before biting into it. "Tastes just like cherries."
Meanwhile, as Shawn was sawing through the net, the bear had its belly and mouth covered from all the berries they were currently eating on. After a few more seconds, the net finally burst and the duo fell into the ground.
"We're free!" Shawn whooped. "Time to get back to the lot."
The scene skipped ahead to a shot of the afternoon sun high in the sky, the camera panning down and to the right to show Chris standing alone by the cast trailers. A little ways to the left was a meager finish line flanked by tall red flags.
"Shawn and his bear!" Chris announced as he saw them coming to the lot. "Nice one!" He proceeded to high five Shawn. "You're the first team to arrive, and for being the first one back, you get a guaranteed spot in the final two."
Confessional: Shawn
"Going to the finale!" Shawn whooped with the bear next to him. "Training pets can be a hassle, but as long as they're not your enemies, you can bond well with them!"
Confessional Ends
"Where is everyone?" Shawn asked the host, both watching the woods along with the bear.
"Sure they'll be here any minute," Chris answered while looking at his watch.
"I'm back!" the voice of Ezekiel announced as he entered the scene.
"Where's the shark, Zeke?" Chris wondered.
"It met some friends in the water," Ezekiel described the situation, "or its family."
"As long as a mammal is reunited with their family, I'm cool with it," Chris shrugged.
The camera panned to the sun as it set, then the moon rose, then the moon set and the sun rose. The shot panned back to them waiting for the remaining contestants, with Chris having grown a large and bushy beard, and the bear asleep.
"Any... minute... now," Chris said weakly, still looking at his watch.
"It's been days," Shawn pointed out. "Maybe we should send out a search party."
"And here they come now!" Chris announced brightly before speeding off screen. The camera pulled back to show Victor and his raccoon and a soaking wet Heather and her fox walking up to the brickhouse.
"Are you guys ok?" DJ asked. "What took you so long?"
"I lost track of time when spending time with Lord Montague," Victor said while gesturing to the raccoon.
"And I wound up taking the wrong river," Heather explained through chattering teeth.
A familiar shout caught their attention and they turned to see Kitsune, now sporting and eye-patch and the parrot on her shoulder, swing into the film lot on a vine. "Argh!" She said in a thick pirate accent. "It be good to be back in me home port."
"Welcome back cast," said a clean shaven Chris. "Better late than never. DJ and his bear buddy easily won the challenge, which means invincibility. DJ gets a free pass into the Final Three."
"Shiver me timbers!" Kitsune cried. "Good job me boy!"
"The question is; Who will join him in the Final Three?" Chris asked. "And who will be the next one outta here? The answer will be revealed on the most exciting Gilded Chris ceremony ev-ah!"
"Now be the time to make the treacherous wench walk the plank!" Kitsune told her allies, who just gave her confused and concerned looks.
"Faith!" Heather groaned. "You're so annoying!"
"Who be Faith?" The goofball asked in genuine curiosity. "I be One-Eyed Foxy, the deadliest pirate on the Seven Seas! And this here's me faithful parrot, Eddie," she added with an affectionate rub of the parrot's head.
"She spent too long in a pit," the parrot explained. "Rawk!"
Heather walked up to the goofball, then slapped her across the face. Kitsune's pupils shrunk and she blinked a couple of times. "Thanks," she said begrudgingly. "I needed that."
"I must say," Victor said, "this has been one of the strangest few days of my life. At least I do not have to vote for DJ now. And maybe Chris will realize that a mole is no longer necessary"
[A grand theme played as the camera zoomed in on the amphitheatre. Several film strips of the host's highlights from the previous season flew past the screen, then the camera panned out from a solid gold screen to show a Guilded Chris.]
"This is a big one cast," Chris told the four teens from his podium. "DJ's safe from elimination which means the rest of you, are fair game. So," he mined a cat's claws scratching, "sharpen those claws and cast your votes. Someone is going home for the last time."
"Pfft," DJ scoffed. "Sorry girl, but you gotta go." He made his vote, and the screen shrunk into the top-left of the screen.
Kitsune sighed in relief as she made her vote. "Now that's satisfying." She shrank into the bottom-right.
"Like it matters at this point," Heather spat bitterly as she made her vote. She shrank into the top-right.
"There really is one choice," Victor said as he made his vote. He shrunk into the bottom-left.
A close-up of Chris grew from the center of the screen and stopped just before it overlapped with any of the castmates' faces.
"The Gilded Chris goes to..." the host announced. "DJ! And Kitsune!" The screen cut to Chris at the podium. "Heather, since you were the only one who didn't vote for you, it's time for your ride home."
"Finally!" Kitsune cheered.
"And Victor will be joining you," Chris added, causing everyone to gasp.
"But why?" DJ asked.
"Let's just say he had some special caused in his contract that he is now in breach of," the host answered.
"But DJ was immune!" Victor protested. "What would you have me do?"
"I don't know," Chris answered with a shrug. "Maybe sabotage DJ like we told you to," the other three gasped again.
"So Sugar was right?" Heather asked in disbelief.
"Confession time," Kitsune said. "I kinda knew Sugar was telling the truth. Seriously guys, Victor's a terrible liar."
Victor sighed and stood up. "I apologize for my actions and I hope that you will forgive me," he told his allies. "Please know that had I not been contractually obligated, I never would have influenced your votes like I had."
"Don't sweat it," Kitsune said with a wave of her hand. "We can't help the things this show makes us do."
"And it's not like you gave anyone an advantage in the competition," DJ added. Victor, upon hearing their words, beamed brightly.
"I'm not okay with it!" Heather shouted. "What was the point in the vote if you were gonna boot him anyway?!"
"Huh," Chris said. "I did not think about that."
"So that means that I can stay and he can go right?" Heather asked.
"Not really, all votes are final," the host explained. "And even so, technically he was disqualified after you were voted off."
"Well you'll be hearing from my lawyers!" Heather threatened.
"Considering that his being here kept you in the game for like three more episode," Chris replied, "I doubt you have a case."
The camera cut to a long distance shot of the film lot as a frustrated growl from Heather shook the screen.
The scene flashed ahead to Heather and Victor getting escorted to the Lame-osine by Chef. "You'll be penniless! Jobless! Your name'll be mud on every blog from here to Cape Breton!" Heather yelled back at the host. "You think you were in trouble when Alejandro sued?! I'll make you wish you never met me!"
Victor got in the limo, Heather was thrown in by Chef, and the cook slammed the door shut. It sped off in a cloud of dust, and the shot cut back to the start of the red carpet where the host stood flanked by the two finalists. "DJ! Kitsune!" he announced, putting his arms around their shoulders. The two

The Gentleman and The Queen Bee both sat in the limo in an awkward silence. "So," Victor
"Don't talk to me," Heather
"Pardon me for attempting to dispel the tension," he replied
"Well I'm sorry," Heather said in frustration. "But I just lived through six weeks of torture, the guy I kinda have a crush on is head over heels with the most annoying person on the planet, and to top it all off I was just voted off. By you! So excuse me if I'm ot in the mood to talk. Especially considering if you'd done your job as a mole, I'd still be in the
Victor pursed his lips. "You do realize that even without my vote you still would have been voted off. Also, the fact that the producers had to hire someone to keep you on the show should tell you

2023.03.29 12:27 panzerfury84 I have to buy a car...

I'm freaking out about it. I only have a total of $2000 and piss poor credit. I'm a generic blue collar wage slave who scrapes by with the bare minimum. I'm terrified of having to talk to someone about buying a car when I have so little money to do it. I'll have to try to go to one of those buy-here, pay-here lots that are famous for being shitty. Even then I doubt they'll sell one to me, my credit is that bad. Its like 525. I'm fucking humiliated about my money and being in this situation. I'm honestly thinking about just pulling all my money out of the bank, leaving it on my desk at home with a note telling my roommate to use it, and just going off into the woods near my house to hang myself so I dont have to deal with this shit anymore. I dont know what the fuck i should do

2023.03.29 12:26 deXterxM Quitted tobacco but addicted to vaping, issues with gum and patches

As titles says, I quitted cigarettes almost a year ago. I was never a chain smoker, maximum 6-8 cigarettes per day and I smoked like this for 6 years. I shifted to vaping, thought I will be able to go down in nicotine but this was a trap for me. I am vaping a lot at the moment and feels down all the time like foggy brain and I know it is due to the vape.
For past 2 months I have tried patches and nicotine gum. Both of these things have their own issues. Patches create irritation on my skin and with gum, I create so much saliva that it is hard to focus on anything other then sit near a bin. I was chewing gum as discussed at so many places, chew and park and repeat.
I am at loss here on how to proceed. I know I dnt have the willpower to go cold Turkey. Any tips or tricks that you have realized on your quitting journey would be really helpful. Thanks.

2023.03.29 12:25 Kazzle87 question about "short farming" positions

someone recently mentioned the strategy called "short farming" to me. Which goes like this: You are expecting, lets say, MATIC to go down in price in the near future. Then you borrow MATIC and put that in a LP position. Lets say MATIC/WETH.
Thats how it was preseted to me. My question is: a) If I put the borrowed MATIC in a LP position, then I (theoretically) still hold them and participate in the downfall of its price b)Shouldn't I have to sell the borrowed MATIC immediately and rebuy them after the anticipated price drop (and close the borrow position) to have this really be a "short" and make the pricedrop of MATIC positiv for me.
I dont really get the logic behind this strategy. Pls help me understand. Is it just because I farm with "borrowed" tokens?

2023.03.29 12:23 loli0001 Can i use whitening strips if I have veneers and implants?

On my upper teeth I have veneers and implants. I know i cant get them any whiter, but right near the gums on my two front teeth you can still see my natural teeth a tiny bit and its driving me insane that it changed colors. I had a professional whitening done before i put my veneers and at first it was fine, but its been 2 years since and now that little part got yellowish.
I want to use whitening strips to try and whiten that part, as well as on my lower teeth, which are my natural teeth, to try to get them the same color as my veneers. Its not a very noticeable difference but i’d like to try it.
Is it safe to do so? Will I damage my veneers? I don’t intend to do a full 20 day whitening, maybe just once or twice, nothing too crazy!
Thank you!

2023.03.29 12:22 vaasuki1359 What are white hat and black hat SEO

What are White Hat and Black Hat SEO?
Search engine optimization, or SEO, is the practice of enhancing your website to raise its organic prominence for particular search queries. Through website adjustments, SEO seeks to increase both the quality and volume of visitors to your website. This goes beyond just stuffing sites with relevant keywords, instead emphasizing crucial web essentials like site performance, mobile friendliness, interaction, and page content. However, with the help of Digital Marketing Courses in Chennai, you will be able to learn more about SEO.
According to experts, effective optimization involves both meeting client needs and abiding by the rules and best practices of search engines like Google and Bing. The core of effective SEO is anticipating user intent, knowing the kind of content they want to view, and giving the best solutions. It enables you to learn more about your clients and their behavior while serving as a sales channel for your company. The best part of SEO is that it's easier to learn and use than you may think. Instead of spending money on conventional print advertisements or sponsored posts, investing in a few tools and taking the time to master the fundamentals of SEO will aid your business more in the long term.
What exactly do White Hat and Black Hat SEO refer to?
In SEO, the terms "white hat" and "black hat" are often used. Simply said, white hat SEO refers to effective SEO techniques that search engines approve, and black hat SEO refers to unethical SEO techniques that violate search engine policies.
Below mentioned are the best White Hat SEO strategies that adhere to the rules and increase the visibility of your website:
Quality Content:
The most important component of present SEO is high-quality content that is produced with the user, not the search engine crawler, in mind. It's the most suitable approach to influence how search engines rank your website or blog.
Content Relevant Keywords:
Content-relevant keywords based on disciplined research around page content is It is necessary to choose keywords that are based on in-depth study on the content of the website. Pay attention to how you utilize keywords as well. Limit your use to one main keyword and two to three secondary or supplemental keywords.
Keyword-rich page titles and metadata:
Page titles and descriptions both must be keyword-rich. Although it's simple to miss or undervalue these areas, most sites' optimization opportunities are accessible.
Quick Page Loading:
Fast page loading is essential since responsive sites don't annoy users or promote bounce, similar to easy navigation or mobile optimization. Site speed is a factor in search engine rankings from an SEO perspective. Because the user experience is compromised, websites that take a long time to reply to visitor requests for whatever reason (big photos, image carousels, etc.) typically rank lower in SERPs. Be aware of how features and functionality affect load times.
The following are some of the Black Hat SEO techniques to avoid while improving the visibility of your website:
Keyword stuffing:
Keyword stuffing, which involves hiding content behind code while cramming it with keyword jargon to make it only apparent to search engine crawlers, may have been effective in the past, but search engines have become more advanced. Site owners that violate these rules will pay a steep punishment, and/or search engine authorities may decide to ban the site.
Meta keyword stuffing:
Meta keyword stuffing, or the artificial insertion of keywords into page titles, meta descriptions, or backlink anchor text, In fact, it may deter web spiders from visiting your site.
Link Farming:
The act of accumulating a large number of irrelevant website links that are often concealed from real site users is known as link farming. Being featured on such a page won't increase your traffic; in fact, it may result in the flagging of your website.

2023.03.29 12:21 __Archivist__ Never go walking in the Appalachian Mountains:

I was always more interested in the macabre and darker parts of the internet. I watched conspiracy videos about all the strange happenings in our world. And there were a lot. Now I am not talking about the basic things like the Bermuda Triangle or the Illuminati. I am talking about the lesser evils, like the Appalachian Mountains.
My sister was always an active person, she loved to go hiking and was a typical flower girl. If you know you know. Me, not so much. I was absolutely content staying at home on my computer researching various ARGs and listening to cryptid sightings online.
So, you'll understand the surprise I felt when my sister asked me to go on a hiking trip with her. It was strange, because she knew I didn't like going out despite my fascination with the world. Now, I won't bore you with the details, but it was barely a week later, and we were on the road. I didn't do a lot of research on our trip. I left that to my sister. However, when she told me we were going to be hiking one of the lesser-known trails I got a bit uneasy.
If you are like me at all you know that leaving the road is a HUGE no no. I know that basic rules of the forest. And the number one rule is: Stay on the Path. My sister has gone hiking many times, alone once or twice but mostly with friends so she knew the rules too. Like, behave quietly and considerately. Take your garbage back home. Avoid fire in a forest.
But she didn't know the rules of the Appalachian Mountains. So, when I mentioned it to her she was surprised and a little skeptical. In fact, she laughed at me the first time I mentioned it to her. I didn't find it funny. My years of research had taught me respect for this forest. The number one rule for this place was: Never look in the trees.
Never ever. Legends say there are eldritch spirits still residing in the woods and I for one, was not about to go and test that theory. My sister had so such self-preservation and looked up into the trees immediately after I told her not to. I will admit, I wanted to strangle her a bit at that point, not because I was afraid of the ancient horror, but more because she had just blatantly ignored me. Like, what the heck? I was trying to be helpful.
Lucky for her, nothing happened and so we set off on our first day in the forest. My sister had planned a weeklong hike for us, and we would be walking about five miles a day. I was not in the fittest shape, so my sister was taking it slower. I was really glad for that.
It was only a few hours into the hike, and I was already deeply regretting my decision to come with her. Screw not being in the fittest shape, I was a soggy donut next to her. She tried to make conversation here and there but eventually picked up from my heaving breaths that talking was not an option. I was close to taking my last breaths, legs like lead when my sister called for camp.
I will admit, I nearly sunk into a puddle of relief right there, if not for the promise of food. Over the next few minutes of hitching our tent up in a small clearing I finally sat down on a nearby log and relaxed. I could breathe normally again for the first time in hours. That's when I felt something was off. The sun was still up, it was about 3pm when we stopped, so in no right should there have been such an absence of sound. The hairs on the back of my neck stood upright. I was reminded of the second rule of the Appalachian Mountains: If the forest falls silent, run.
My sister had no such unease, she had settled beside me and was chatting away even as I glanced around the place, searching for any life other than us in the thunderous silence. Finally, I shushed her. She must have picked something up from the tone of my voice because she fell silent too.
"We have to leave, now." I whispered quietly. That seemed to snap her out of her silence.
"No we just got here!" She snapped. "I'm not going back just because you're afraid of the dark."
We argued for a bit, her voice getting louder and louder and me frantically now, trying to calm her down. Like girl, do you want to get us killed? But she made it clear she wasn't leaving, and I didn't want to leave her out here alone, so I stayed too. In the end, we didn't even wait until dark and retreated to our tent for the night. It took me a long while to fall asleep and I was too afraid to put on the white noise that usually accompanied my sleep. So, I lay there in the drowning silence, until finally, I fell into a fitful rest.
I woke awoke to screaming.

2023.03.29 12:20 yutyrannus02 I hate my life and don't know how to fix it

I've spent the last 6 years of my life rotting away at home in my room. I'm turning 21 this year and have been trying to get the information i need to start my life hopefully, but ever since I was pulled out of a school my mother hasn't made much of an effort to get Critical documention I need. (social security card, birth certificate, ID basically anything.) Without any documents I'm unable to apply in any capacity to get new documents or apply or work any actual job or really do anything so I'm stuck being chronically online, hoping this is the day she decides to help me I'm continuously getting ignored and made promises that it will happen soon. I have no friends near me, no actual experience, no social skills, barley any education. I just can't do it anymore. I feel as though I've completely wasted my life and have nothing to show for it. I have no hope for my future and feel more and more discouraged things will improve every day with how bad things are at home and my attempts to maybe get some sort of work or income of any kind always seeming to fail because of my lack of information. I don't expect any practical advice to be given about this, since truthfully I know I just need to hope soon she takes my situation more seriously and there's not much more I can do but I can't help but feel it's just too late for me to have a normal life and be happy

I was looking for a new biome when I noticed that I was near Aurora and had 2 Leviathan Reaper circling me. I thought I was able to sneak out since I was in the Kelp Forest already but it attacked my Seamoth. I got out for safety and the Leviathan was gone but my Seamoth is 50 meters up high in the air and I cannot make it down. It's got upgrades already so it kinda sucks if I have to make em again. I tried throwing fishes at it and the buggiest fish of all which is floaters but none worked so far. Any ideas how to make this down or do I have to make another Seamoth?

2023.03.29 12:17 0xFF0000 FYI: if you haven't completed repayment info, you will receive a DIFFERENT email

EDIT: likely receive, I shouldn't say "will".
TL;DR search for the string you or your company have not completed in your inbox and be slightly less worried if you don't find anything. Search again in a couple days to re-check...
OBVIOUSLY don't bet your life on this, validate details yourself either way.
So I had two mtgox accounts (associated with two different email addresses):
  1. first one I made claim for, filled in selection, crypto and banking details, anxiously re-checking if all OK etc.;
  2. second mtgox account - nearly empty and I am not making a claim for that one (sent an email long ago telling them to dismiss it, etc., but they're swamped, so I just keep getting reminders to this second email address as well).
Today I received two new emails from mtgox, one with the usual red-bolded-text-achtung-general-warning string:
This email has also been sent to rehabilitation creditors who have already completed the Selection and Registration. [...]
in the body, and title of "(Action Required/Deadline Approaching)【Important】【MTGOX】:Request for Selection of Repayment Method and Registration of Payee Information"
But for this OTHER account which I'm not filing for nor putting in repayment info for, I received a slightly different email:
Subject: "[MTGOX][Action Required] Information on Selection of Repayment Methods by Selection Form" (yes, differently arranged words, very clear, much wow)
In the body (emphasis mine):
  1. Status of your or your company’s selection of repayment methods
As of March 16, 2023, you or your company have not completed all or part of the selection of proportional repayment and the selection of repayment method for cryptocurrency rehabilitation claims (collectively, the “Repayment Methods Selection”) via the MTGOX Online Rehabilitation Claim Filing System (i.e., the system accessible via; the “System”).
To receive an early lump-sum repayment or repayment in cryptocurrency for your or your company’s cryptocurrency rehabilitation claims, you or your company must complete the Repayment Methods Selection by April 6, 2023 (Japan Time). If you or your company do not do so by such date, it will be deemed that you or your company do not wish to receive such repayment.
In principle, the Repayment Methods Selection has to be made via the System. If you or your company cannot log in to the System, please read the instructions in 2. below and make necessary applications.
So I thereby can kind-of infer that the first account looks fine to them payment selection and info submission wise. Obviously shouldn't 100% trust this, but if you do not receive this other email with you or your company have not completed in the body, I think it's a good sign...
P.S. fun fact this other email telling me that I in fact haven't submitted sufficient info and which seems to have only been sent to a subset of email addresses does not contain any red bolded text. :D 5/5 email experience, 5/5 clarity, what can I say.

2023.03.29 12:17 Informal-Cloud5842 ldr girlfriend with an abusive mom

Can anyone give me an advice I badly need it.
I (19f) met this girl (18f) by the end of 2021 online. Things went well and we started dating a few months later. Okay naman yung start ng relationship namin and I was looking forward to meet them irl. I know their mom is strict kaya we couldn't meet agad even if i said pwede ako mag-adjust and ako pumunta sa kanila (we're 3-5 hours away from each other) because they've been opening up to me but I didn't expect how worse she really is.
A month or two after we started dating, bigla akong nakatanggap ng message from their mom using gf's account. Threatening me na tigilan ko daw anak niya or ipapahanap niya ako sa nbi, cursed me, and sabi distraction daw ako sa pag-aaral niya. I didnt reply and waited for gf na mahawakan yung account niya so we could talk.
From then on, nalaman ko na kung gaano kalala mom niya kaya pala di kami makapagmeet up. Di siya basta basta pinapayagan lumabas, need niya daw weeks before magpaalam, then kailangan may proof pa kung sino kasama niya etc. Their mom knows their fb account din kahit ibahin niya password pinipilit pa din, right now di niya alam pw niya but their mom knows, grabe.
Im pretty sure their mom hates me. Occasionally, bigla siyang magmemessage using her daughter's account with the usual threats. Ako naman never ko nireplyan because di naman ako mabilis maapektuhan sa ganyan. I was more worried about my girlfriend, di ko alam kung anong nangyayari sa kanya in those times na di niya ako macontact because of their mom.
We're both in college and last year nagstart na ftf classes ko. My gf's started earlier this year and we saw that as a chance to meet up since my university is pretty near to theirs. But the thing is, we could only meet up pag maaga dismissal niya or may mahaba siyang vacant because their mom knows their schedule. We first met last month and we've been seeing each other since then.
Their mom found out last week na we met up. Extra strict na siya ngayon kay gf, need updates everytime, hatid sundo, ichecheck pa yung gb ng data niya every time uuwi siya para malaman kung nakikipag usap ba siya sakin online. Even planning na ipadala siya sa province para di na kami magkita. It was ridiculous. I know it was dangerous for gf kasi di lang verbal/emotional abuse ang ginagawa sa kanya, but it was still their decision kung magsstay ba siya or hindi because i dont want to make that decision for them. They chose to stay. We had to be extra careful when meeting up.
Earlier today may 4-hour vacant siya so we met up. Nandoon na ako sa sm foodcourt waiting for gf and then they came. A few mins later their mom called, gf had to lie, gave me the phone to pretend im a classmate. Im sure their mom knew i wasnt. We were sitting there while they were talking for 20 mins. My gf checked their mom's location on their phone and found out na papunta yung mom sa sm. I had to leave my gf there. Kumain muna ako somewhere then after an hour bumalik ako sa foodcourt to check on gf but they weren't there anymore so i went home.
While i was omw home their mom messaged me again using gf's account and said tigilan ko na daw siya or aalamin niya ip address ko and ipapatulfo niya ako. I know im not doing anything wrong so im not scared, but i know my gf isnt safe with that woman. I dont know how to help. I dont know if its better to end our relationship for their safety. Their mom's always been that way pero lumala lang because of me. I dont know what to do anymore I just want to be with them, why is that so hard? Ive been putting up with their mom's bs because i love my gf so much and I dont want to leave but its so complicated now.
Please anyone give me your thoughts about this

2023.03.29 12:15 SyntheticSoundsmith Is there a future here? Or am I just lucky for now

This past month has been very surreal for me. I had an idea for a video, made the video and realized it suddenly had 10k views 2 days later. I went into panic mode, saw my opportunity, and started pumping out more videos. I don't even know what I'm doing now, I'm just trying to get better, but I feel like I have no idea what I'm doing or what to even do.
I have somehow managed to gather near 40k subs in just over a month.
I can't comprehend these numbers.
The imposter syndrome is very real right now, I don't feel like I deserve anything that's happening and it's so overwhelming, but I know that I cannot stop because of this potential. At the same time what I'm doing COULD be just a phase, and will go away and my channel will wither and die.
I don't know. I don't know what my question is or how to ask It, but I guess this is me venting. I'm very overwhelmed.

Gonna keep this post briefer than my normal ones. I'm an INFP type personality, which is a mediator, I communicate perhaps too well, and I can confirm that, cause I am good listener, and try hard to be not judgemental, when I am, I keep it more to myself, and try and see the good qualities in people. I would say my childhood was normal, other than growing up in a broken home, no father, mom and other family members abused alcohol and hard drugs, which is one of the main reasons I only smoke weed and drink occasionally. I also joined the Marine Corps, was injured during my 2nd deployment and if that doesn't scare you off right away, I am very approachable and can talk about it, without reliving it. I do have good and funny memories to share from the experience. I smiled a lot, even there somehow.
That's essentially me, the guy that leans more optimistic, and always trying to make myself laugh and others. Makes plans and takes care of myself and my younger brother that lives me, I however don't drive, but I live near Philly and utilize public transportation, when I need to travel, and that's something I want the most. Gimme a beach, or some mountains and wildlife, and I am content. A friend, or certainly a LTR, with someone who can support a guy, who was influenced by punk bands, but is a huge metalcore, deathcore, and Industrial nerd with everything from Kesha to Queen, basically I rather listen to Nickelback than Maroon 5.
I wouldn't consider myself a jack of all trades, but my interests outside music and movies, includes video games mostly ARPG's and shooters like Borderlands and Bioshock, and my 2 dogs, both females and one's a full pitbull, and the other is a german-shepard/pit mix. I like most animals, aside from birds. I grew up on adult swim, comedy central and MTV. I enjoy a wide range of movies, and own over 1,000 movies, if you add up my blu ray and dvds.
Not interested in sharing spicy pictures, or receiving them, and not looking for the one, just someone who is supportive, can be sassy but polite and most of all, appreciate a guy willing to make the effort to try and make you laugh with a mix of corny throw away jokes, and dark humor. My female celebrity crush is Aubrey Plaza, and my ideal relationship would resemble Dax Shepards and Kristin Bell or Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively. You don't have to look like those women, all the women I have dated were BBW, I'd say I would prefer a Goth/Alternative women, mainly so we def share musical taste, but I'm also the guy, that finds majority of women attractive regardless of race, social status.
