Half-Life: Wastelands (WIP)

Before I start:
What is "Wastelands"? Wastelands is a story I'm planning on writing that revolves around a Resistance faction tracking an unusual series of Combine Shipments to the United States of America: A country that has been closed off since just shortly after the conclusion of the Seven Hour War. (Hence the lack of anything at the end of P2 and the fact its completely crossed out on Alyx's globe.)
It's still a WIP, I just wanted to know what you all think of this short excerpt before I continue.
Half-Life: Wastelands
Prologue
It is now the nineteenth year of the Combine's occupation on Earth.
The planet's resources have been sucked dry by the Combine, and many species have come to extinction as a result of the Black Mesa Disaster & Combine Threat.
Many areas of the world have been cut off from one another. Most notably: What used to be the United States of America.
No one has lived in the States since shortly after the Combine invasion, when all Citizens were moved out due to an overabundance of Xen Wildlife, on top of the area becoming mostly uninhabitable by humans due to the effects of the Seven Hour War.
However... One Resistance Faction has been tracking an unusual series of Combine Shipments... And it has lead them straight to the U.S. Wastelands.
Chapter 1 - In Transit
[Open in a worn-down Library. Bookcases have been toppled over, and the remains of piles of books have been strewn across the floor. A group of six stands around a table, with a map laid out on top of it.]
Agnes: We've tracked all of the Combine's shipments in a fifteen mile radius for the last month. All shipment schedules & routes add up... except for one.
Daniel: So? Maybe they screwed up a shipment. Maybe we screwed up a shipment.
Agnes: Nope... We didn't hit this one. And if we had, I wouldn't be bringing it up now.
[She picks up a red marker and draws circles around specific areas.]
Agnes: This is where the Combine Shipments coming in from outside of City 11 usually show up. Then, they're unloaded and moved to these warehouses. For those that travel outwards, the shipments are taken from... these points... and packed onto the Razor Trains, which travel along the regular rail systems. But here's the interesting part.
[She draws a line from a station to a rail system.]
Agnes: A couple of days ago, a Razor Train branched off from the regular routes... To a rail system that I've never seen used before.
Daniel: Maybe you just missed it.
Agnes: Maybe you just missed my point. That rail system... I cross-referenced with older maps & Combine Terminals... and despite the Combine's modification of the rail systems in the past... I can confirm that shipment was headed into the US.
Evan: America? But... it's been cut off for decades, are you sure?
Agnes: Positive. I also noticed the Combine's regular shipment schedules falling out of sync after the first train took off. They must be moving supplies. But why?
Amelia: Are they re-opening the states? I mean, that was a pretty big area.
Evan: That wouldn't make sense. They have more than enough space for all the remaining humans in the current Cities. 'Sides, it's not like they'd care. The less people around, the more they can get away with.
Daniel: That's true... plus, I'm sure the Breencasts would've been spouting bullshit about "Our benefactors resurrecting this once great nation!".
[Daniel makes a mocking salute.]
Agnes: They seem to be scattered. We may be able to use that to our advantage. Maybe figure out what they're planning, and get word back to Black Mesa East once we're back.
Daniel: Hold on, hold on, hold on. What do you mean "once we're back"?
Agnes: You all ready for a road trip?
Daniel: ...We’re going now?
Agnes: Why else would I have called everyone over here? Everyone, get your game faces on. We move in on Quesnel Station in five.
Daniel: And here I thought I’d get to sleep today.
[Agnes whistles loudly.]
Agnes: Alright, everybody, let’s get a move on!
[She pulls a bag over her shoulder & opens the Library Warehouse’s sliding door. The group exits the library, making their way across the street, and using a ladder to get onto a nearby rooftop. Emma kneels down and pulls out a pair of binoculars.]
Emma: No CP til we get to the checkpoints ‘tween Reid and Barlow. Don’t think we can sneak around. We’ll have to create a diversion of some kind.
Agnes: Daniel, Amelia, you got it covered?
Daniel: Yep. We’ll draw ‘em away & link up with you two at St. Andrew’s.
[Amelia nods.]
Agnes: Alright. Let’s go.
[They drop down, carefully moving between buildings until they get to an abandoned casino near the Combine checkpoints.]
Emma: Okay… You guys will have to lure them down Barlow and shake ‘em off. Just be sure to avoid going towards Cariboo Highway, or else the forcefields'll cut you off.

Chapter 1 - In Transit
Light peers through the windows of a worn-down Library. Bookcases have been toppled over, and the remains of piles of books have been strewn across the floor. A group of six stands around a table, with a map laid out on top of it. “We've tracked all of the Combine's shipments in a fifteen-mile radius for the last month.”, Agnes begins. “All shipment schedules & routes add up... except for one.” Daniel scoffs. “So? Maybe they screwed up a shipment. Maybe we screwed up a shipment.” Agnes shakes her head. “Nope... We didn't hit this one. And if we had, I wouldn't be bringing it up now.”
Agnes picks up a red marker and draws circles around specific areas. “This is where the Combine Shipments coming in from outside of City 11 usually show up. Then, they're unloaded and moved to these warehouses. For those that travel outwards, the shipments are taken from... these points... and packed onto the Razor Trains, which travel along the regular rail systems.

The fewer people around, the more they can get away with.” Daniel nods in agreement. “Aye, that's true... plus, I'm sure the Breencasts would've been spoutin’ some bullshit about "Our benefactors resurrecting this once great nation!” Daniel makes a mocking salute.
“They seem to be scattered”, Agnes began. “We may be able to use that to our advantage. Maybe figure out what they're planning, and get word back to Black Mesa East once we're back.” “Hold on, hold on, hold on”, Daniel replies. “What do ye mean “once we're back”?” Agnes steps back from the table. “You all ready for a road trip?” Daniel does a double-take. “...We’re going now?”, he asks her. Agnes nods. “Why else would I have called everyone over here? Everyone, get your game faces on. We move in on Quesnel Station in five.” Daniel rubs his eyes, sighing. “And here I thought I’d get to sleep today.”
Agnes whistles loudly. “Alright, everybody, let’s get a move on!” She pulls a bag over her shoulder, & opens the library warehouse’s sliding door. The group exits the library, making their way across the street, and using a ladder to get onto a nearby rooftop. Emma kneels and pulls out a pair of binoculars. “No CP ‘til we get to the checkpoints ‘tween Reid and Barlow. Don’t think we can sneak around. We’ll have to create a diversion of some kind.”, she says. “Daniel, Amelia, you got it covered?”, Agnes questions. “Yep.”, Daniel replies. “We’ll draw ‘em away & link up with you two at St. Andrew’s.” “Alright. Let’s go.”, Agnes says.
They drop down, carefully heading between buildings until they get to an abandoned casino near the Combine checkpoints. “Okay… You guys will have to lure them down Barlow and shake ‘em off. Just be sure to avoid going towards Cariboo Highway, or else the forcefields’ll cut you off.”, Emma tells them. “Got it.”, Amelia replies. “C’mon, Danny.” The two dash between buildings and get between the two checkpoints. Daniel picks up a can and chucks it at a Metrocop. “Sorry! Thought you were a Cremator!” The Metrocop raises his Stunstick, dashing after Danny & Amelia. “We’ve got a 10-31 at checkpoint 5A, 2 suspects. Officers in pursuit. Code 1.” Over the Metrocop’s radio, the Overwatch AI responds. “Overwatch acknowledges. Detain and deliver sociocide verdict immediately.”
Daniel and Amelia dash away, and the rest of the group sneaks past the checkpoint, making their way around a building until they make it to the church. Shortly thereafter, they are met once more by the two. Amelia dusts her hands. “They’ll be searching that block for a while. Let’s make ourselves scarce.” Agnes nods, patting her on the back. “Good work.” The group proceeds across the city until they get to Quesnel Museum. Agnes puts a hand out, motioning the group to halt. “Alright. Let’s take extreme caution here. Combine patrols are usually swarming around this place. Emma?” Emma pulls out her binoculars, scanning the area. “We’ll need a way through the forcefield. Scanners are patrolling the front of the building. But it looks like there’s a Combine APC up the road. Some CPs taking an unapproved break, it seems. If we can commandeer that APC, we can cross the highway into the station.” Agnes bites her lip. “That creates a complication. They’re out in the open, they’ll see us coming from a mile away.”
Evan smiles. “They’ll see us coming from a mile away, sure… You guys remember that Snark infestation in the vents? I… may have kept some of ‘em.” Evan pulls out a jar with a Snark inside of it. Emma stares at Evan with a stunned expression. “You kept live Snarks in our headquarters?” Evan shuffles his feet. “I mean… I separated them.” Emma rolls her eyes, and Agnes shrugs. “It’s worth a shot, I guess.” She puts a hand on Evan’s shoulder. “Soon as you get close enough, lure them towards you, unleash the Snarks, then get the hell away as fast as you can.”, she tells him. “Yeah. I was hoping I’d get to use these guys on something… y’know, bigger. But I guess I’ll have to make due. Part of me is gonna miss you, little guys.” Evan pats the Snark Jar. The Snark hisses, and the group exchanges concerned glances.
Evan heads down the road towards the CPs. He waves his arms, reaching into his jacket pocket. “Hey! Hey!” The Metrocops turn their attention towards him. “What the-- Hey! Stop right there!” The cops draw their pistols, slowly approaching him. “Take your hand out of your jacket now!” Evan chuckles. “If you say so… I have to warn you, though. These guys get cranky when they aren’t fed.” Evan pulls the Snark jars out from his jacket and tosses them onto the ground before running back and hitting the pavement. The jars shatter, and the Snarks immediately leap towards the CPs. The Metrocops scream, firing on the Snarks, but miss their shots. Their body armor is easily torn apart by the Snarks, allowing the aliens to feast on their exposed flesh.
One of the Metrocops runs for the APC. He hastily unlocks the door just before getting their head slammed through the glass by Agnes, knocking them unconscious. Agnes pulls the CP’s mask off, cupping her hands over her mouth. “Evan, get over here fast!” Evan sprints away from the Snarks and dives into the back of the APC. Emma hops into the driver’s seat, looking over the controls. “Uhhh, uh, shit. Does anyone here know how to drive?!” Agnes scoots her over, taking the driver’s seat. “Learned just before the invasion. Though it’s been a long time since I’ve driven…” She puts the APC in Drive, and speeds off just as the Snarks leap towards it.
“Okay… Almost there.” Agnes puts the CP’s mask on while keeping one hand on the wheel. “Emma, keep your head down. We can’t risk anyone seeing us on the way in.” Emma ducks down as they pull into the station. Justin whispers from the back. “I know this is serious, but I just gotta say, your voice sounds really cool in that mask.” “Zip it.”, Agnes responds as she pulls up in front of the main building. It is then that she notices a CP Officer signaling them to stop. Agnes feels her stomach drop as she slows down next to him, rolling the window down.
The Metrocop looks up at her. “There you are. Mind explaining to me what took you so long? We’re almost behind schedule, everything else has been loaded. And--Hey, where’s the rest of your patrol?” Agnes swallows. “Uhh… Some… Some Citizens caused a bit of a ruckus earlier. They had to provide some extra backup. Sorry.” “Just get the damn supplies over to James before you get us both in trouble.” The cop points his stunstick towards a Metrocop nearby. “Got it. Th--...Thank you..?”, she says, biting down on her lip after letting that slip out. The cop simply shakes his head as she drives off. “Dumbass is gonna get himself killed.” Agnes pulls up towards “James”.
“Took you long enough. Do you have that last supply shipment?” “...Yeah… Yeah. I’ll unlock the back for you.”, she tells him. James motions another Metrocop over, and they head towards the back of the vehicle. Agnes pulls the sliding door open. “Get ready.”, she says as she unlocks the back doors. The Metrocops pull them open, only to get dragged into the back of the vehicle by the others. Daniel slams the doors shut, and the rest of them knock the two cops unconscious. Daniel turns his head towards the driver’s seat. “Agnes? You did not think this through very well.” “There are only six of us, what do you expect me to do? Just drive through the front gates and gun everyone down?”, she scoffs. “That’d make things easier.” She shakes her head. “We don’t get things easy nowadays. Now, uh… Hmm… Hey, Emma, most Metrocop suits are tailored to the average height of the adult male, right?” Emma pops her head up. “Uh… Yeah. Why?” Agnes turns towards the back. “Danny, Evan? You two are gonna get us on that train.” The two raise their heads. Daniel blinks. “Excuse me?” “Get in uniform.”, she tells him. Daniel sighs. “Weirdest feckin’ day of me life.”
After Daniel and Evan get in the CP uniforms, Amelia and Justin tie up and gag the CPs with spare rope. Agnes turns to the others. “Alright. Emma, sneak into the back. Here’s how we’re gonna get on board.” Emma steps around the other side of the APC and climbs into the back of the vehicle. Agnes continues. “I’m gonna pull up to the loading bay. Soon as you two step out, I want you to stack cargo up to provide some cover for the others to board the train. After that, you two are gonna load the cargo onto the train, and the rest of you are gonna hide inside those Combine crates.” Daniel looks at her. “That is a really shoddy plan.” She glares at him. “Daniel, I swear to god, I will come back there and stick my foot up your ass if you don’t stop complaining today. Get out there. Now.”
Danny and Evan hop out of the APC, stacking supply crates on top of one another. The group sneaks aboard the train, climbing into the supply crates that get loaded on board. Agnes carefully makes her way under the vehicle, and Daniel helps her to her feet. She climbs into the train car. “Soon as this thing gets going, you two sneak onto the back of the train car, and I’ll open it from the inside. Got it?” The two nod. Agnes hides behind some crates, and Daniel continues loading cargo. “Feckin’ hell, what do they put in these things?” “Considering some of the things I’ve seen?”, Evan asks. “I, for one, do not want to know.”
They finish loading cargo and Evan waves to the other Metrocops. “We’re good to go!” The train car’s folding door closes, and the train begins moving. When the other Metrocops turn their heads, Danny & Evan hop up onto the platform. Agnes opens the door, and they step inside. “Okay... We’re clear.” Agnes opens the Combine supply crates, and Emma pops her head out, gasping for air. “God damn it, those things are airtight!” Agnes quickly opens the rest of the crates, and helps everyone out. “Alright, everyone… Next stop: The United States.”

I dont want to be alive

I don't have anyone to talk to and I just need to get this off my chest. Full disclosure, this is a throwaway account
I don't want to be alive but I'm too much of a coward to end it.
It started about 3yrs ago when I met the love of my life. She was beautiful, funny, shared a lot of the same interests. At 36 I found belief in "soulmates". I knew she had a pretty shady past with relationships (cheating, etc) but I was honestly able to look past all that. It was love at first sight. She has 4 great kids (I never had any), and they all took to me fast, the youngest even calling me Daddy, even though her boo dad was still in the picture. She wasn't able to have any more kids naturally,but we had been considering looking into medical assistance to have one of our own {This plays later}. I've never been the kind of guy to get beautiful women, never felt I was that good looking. Kinda chubby, not great talking to women. But some how I found this beautiful, sexy woman that wanted me
We moved in together about 2yrs ago, and everything was great, perfect even. Then she got a a job at a casino near us, and everything started going south. Casinos, in general, are toxic. Internal drama, rumors, interpersonal "actiivities". I soon discovered, by accident, that she was still messaging some of her friends that were former lovers, or simp love interests (including one that worked at her casino - her supervisor. I accidently saw her texting one of them, and it was pretty inappropriate for friends. I sent a message to her "friend" at the casino, respectfully asking him not to flirt with her anymore, and apparantly I screwed up. I recognize I should have gone straight to her, but I didn't know how to properly broach the subject. That escalated into our very first fight, but we got through it. I thought she understood how i felt about her flirting with other men like she was, and she said she would stop. Around this time I also discovered that her best friend, who we were babysitting his kid, was also a former lover years ago, but I was OK with him,as we had met and became friendly
Afewmonths later I discovered she was texting another formerlover, this time sending pics of herself in bra/panties, and reminiscing over past sexual encounters, talking about how she "Loved when his toes curled when she sucked him off", and how he "Loved how she came while riding him". She would disappear for 3-8hrs after work, claiming to be going on drives to have time with herself to decompress, but I later found out that she was actually going to a male coworkers house, and was lying about it. This time I blew up, and it was worse after the last time,and her knowing how I felt about it. Not to mention know that he is mentally unstable, and sometimes prone to violence. He played the victim, and she went on the defensive over her actons, saying how it was harmless, and the pics weren't nude. This fight led to me moving into our spare bedroom for a few months. During that time I felt low, my self esteem was destroyed. I met a girl at work,and even though it never became sexual, we flirtedalot. I honestly wasn't sure if our relationship was over, or would heal. I know it was wrong,and I take full responsibility for my actions, nor try to makee excuses.
She had sent some unsolicited nudes, and I didn't stop her. None others were sent after those. At one point she had made a pretty dark joke,and not thinking I made a joke about wanting her to have my babies. The flirting remained light after that, and I had told her I was in a relationship, but it was not in a good place. I think she was taking pity on meandflirting to make me feel better. Shortly after that my GF and I had started to reconcile, I moved back into our room, and even though the flirting didn't stop completely, it died down alot. In the course of reconciling, I agreed to try to be more understanding of her flirtatious nature, and I continued to lightly flirt with the girl at work.
One night I forgot my phone at home, and my GF got on and started going through everything. I don't have to spell out how that went over. She pieced together who the pics were from (I honestly can't say why I even kept them), and read through all the messages. Even though the babies comment was made as a joke, she didn't take it that way, and started texting with the girl at work. It blew up, and she almost left, but we agreed to try to work through everything. I completely broke contact with the girl at work, but GF still kept the flirty friends.
About 5 months later I had a major falling out with my family, finding out my brother had manipulated my mother into disowning me {eventhough I was taking care of her in her failing health}, and then my entire family disowned me, my brother literally wishing me dead, and trying to destroy my legal credibility. I was able to survive, mentally and emotionally, only because I had my GF and her family(who basically adopted me last year).
Even though things were seeming to get better, apparently they were getting worse between us. Our sex life went from almost every day, to 1-2 aweek, to sometimes 1-2 amonth. With COVID I lost my (great) job, so as backup I went to work where my GF works. Last month my cousin had a heart attack and died, and I took it hard {we were more like siblings growing up, but adult life we drifted apart}, and then my brother started in with his crap, trying to make it even worse, trying to egg me to suicide. Again, I survived all this because of my GF and her family. By this point,however, we were fighting more than making love.
2 weeks ago, during another fight, she broke everything off and moved into the spare room, moving everything of her within a day, took away my key to our van, changed all the wifi passwords, and told our youngest she didn't have to call me daddy anymore. And pretty sure she's already had sex with someone else to prove she's over me. One of the biggest thing that hurts, and affects my self esteem and thinking about ending it, is I suffer from chronic pain, neuropathy and gout, and one of the side effects is severe sweating. She keeps saying one of the big things in the break up, is I smell different, and she's not attracted to me anymore. The biggest part of that is the pain sweats causing a change in BO, not gross, just stronger than normal. Even though she hassaid, multiple times, that unchangeable medical conditions would never change her thinking,since she also suffers from different type of chronic pain {Migraines}. I'm not looking for sympathy, I know I've done so much wrong
This leads to now, and my emotional rock bottom. In 1 instant I lost my GF {who I was literally planning to propose to at Christmas}, my kids, my friends {that were hers originally}, independent transportation, set a countdown to being homeless {we rent a house together}, and probably die alone.
I've considered the different ways to end it, but all scare me that I might faill and survive. This isn't a"cry for help", or a pity party for sympathy, that's why I used my throw away. I just needed to get this off my chest before I get up the courage to do it. Talk to Reddit like it was a person. I've heard all the normal platitudes, "You'll get through this", "There's other fish", "You have so much to live for". I don't though. I literally don't have anything, and even closer to having less, probably skipping the last month of rent to get a cheap car to live in. If I go that long.
This isn't a cry for help, maybe it's my manifesto, or my final note. I just know I needed to talk about it. I'll probably get some that will laugh it off and call me an attention seeker, glad I could lighten your day. I doubt it will be today, or tomorrow. But maybe I'll eventually build up the courage. Some will call me weak, or a coward for thinking this way. I already know. You can't insult me more than I do myself. I don't even know if I'll log on to this account again. I'm not condoning the course of action I'm considering, please don't do what I'm considering.
If you've made it this far I'm sorry, this wasn't originally a rant. It all just kinda poured out

Half-Life: Wastelands [Chapter 1]

Note: Reposting bc I posted it at like 1 AM yesterday and almost nobody saw it
Prologue
It is now the nineteenth year of the Combine's occupation on Earth.
The planet's resources have been sucked dry by the Combine, and many species have come to extinction as a result of the Black Mesa Disaster & Combine Threat.
Many areas of the world have been cut off from one another. Most notably: What used to be the United States of America.
No one has lived in the States since shortly after the Combine invasion, when all Citizens were moved out due to an overabundance of Xen Wildlife, on top of the area becoming mostly uninhabitable by humans due to the effects of the Seven Hour War.
However... One Resistance Faction has been tracking an unusual series of Combine Shipments... And it has lead them straight to the U.S. Wastelands.
Chapter 1 - In Transit
Light peers through the windows of a worn-down Library. Bookcases have been toppled over, and the remains of piles of books have been strewn across the floor. A group of six stands around a table, with a map laid out on top of it. “We've tracked all of the Combine's shipments in a fifteen-mile radius for the last month.”, Agnes begins. “All shipment schedules & routes add up... except for one.” Daniel scoffs. “So? Maybe they screwed up a shipment. Maybe we screwed up a shipment.” Agnes shakes her head. “Nope... We didn't hit this one. And if we had, I wouldn't be bringing it up now.”

Agnes whistles loudly. “Alright, everybody, let’s get a move on!” She pulls a bag over her shoulder, & opens the library warehouse’s sliding door. The group exits the library, making their way across the street, and using a ladder to get onto a nearby rooftop. Emma kneels and pulls out a pair of binoculars. “No CP ‘til we get to the checkpoints ‘tween Reid and Barlow. Don’t think we can sneak around. We’ll have to create a diversion of some kind.”, she says. “Daniel, Amelia, you got it covered?”, Agnes questions. “Yep.”, Daniel replies. “We’ll draw ‘em away & link up with you two at St. Andrew’s.” “Alright.

Code 1.” Over the Metrocop’s radio, the Overwatch AI responds. “Overwatch acknowledges. Detain and deliver sociocide verdict immediately.”
Daniel and Amelia dash away, and the rest of the group sneaks past the checkpoint, making their way around a building until they make it to the church. Shortly thereafter, they are met once more by the two. Amelia dusts her hands. “They’ll be searching that block for a while. Let’s make ourselves scarce.” Agnes nods, patting her on the back. “Good work.” The group proceeds across the city until they get to Quesnel Museum. Agnes puts a hand out, motioning the group to halt. “Alright. Let’s take extreme caution here. Combine patrols are usually swarming around this place. Emma?” Emma pulls out her binoculars, scanning the area. “We’ll need a way through the forcefield. Scanners are patrolling the front of the building. But it looks like there’s a Combine APC up the road. Some CPs taking an unapproved break, it seems. If we can commandeer that APC, we can cross the highway into the station.” Agnes bites her lip. “That creates a complication. They’re out in the open, they’ll see us coming from a mile away.”
Evan smiles. “They’ll see us coming from a mile away, sure… You guys remember that Snark infestation in the vents? I… may have kept some of ‘em.” Evan pulls out a jar with a Snark inside of it. Emma stares at Evan with a stunned expression. “You kept live Snarks in our headquarters?” Evan shuffles his feet. “I mean… I separated them.” Emma rolls her eyes, and Agnes shrugs. “It’s worth a shot, I guess.” She puts a hand on Evan’s shoulder. “Soon as you get close enough, lure them towards you, unleash the Snarks, then get the hell away as fast as you can.”, she tells him. “Yeah. I was hoping I’d get to use these guys on something… y’know, bigger. But I guess I’ll have to make due. Part of me is gonna miss you, little guys.” Evan pats the Snark Jar. The Snark hisses, and the group exchanges concerned glances.
Evan heads down the road towards the CPs. He waves his arms, reaching into his jacket pocket. “Hey! Hey!” The Metrocops turn their attention towards him. “What the-- Hey! Stop right there!” The cops draw their pistols, slowly approaching him. “Take your hand out of your jacket now!” Evan chuckles. “If you say so… I have to warn you, though. These guys get cranky when they aren’t fed.” Evan pulls the Snark jars out from his jacket and tosses them onto the ground before running back and hitting the pavement. The jars shatter, and the Snarks immediately leap towards the CPs. The Metrocops scream, firing on the Snarks, but miss their shots. Their body armor is easily torn apart by the Snarks, allowing the aliens to feast on their exposed flesh.
One of the Metrocops runs for the APC. He hastily unlocks the door just before getting their head slammed through the glass by Agnes, knocking them unconscious. Agnes pulls the CP’s mask off, cupping her hands over her mouth. “Evan, get over here fast!” Evan sprints away from the Snarks and dives into the back of the APC. Emma hops into the driver’s seat, looking over the controls. “Uhhh, uh, shit. Does anyone here know how to drive?!” Agnes scoots her over, taking the driver’s seat. “Learned just before the invasion. Though it’s been a long time since I’ve driven…” She puts the APC in Drive, and speeds off just as the Snarks leap towards it.
“Okay… Almost there.” Agnes puts the CP’s mask on while keeping one hand on the wheel. “Emma, keep your head down. We can’t risk anyone seeing us on the way in.” Emma ducks down as they pull into the station. Justin whispers from the back. “I know this is serious, but I just gotta say, your voice sounds really cool in that mask.” “Zip it.”, Agnes responds as she pulls up in front of the main building. It is then that she notices a CP Officer signaling them to stop. Agnes feels her stomach drop as she slows down next to him, rolling the window down.
The Metrocop looks up at her. “There you are. Mind explaining to me what took you so long? We’re almost behind schedule, everything else has been loaded. And--Hey, where’s the rest of your patrol?” Agnes swallows. “Uhh… Some… Some Citizens caused a bit of a ruckus earlier. They had to provide some extra backup. Sorry.” “Just get the damn supplies over to James before you get us both in trouble.” The cop points his stunstick towards a Metrocop nearby. “Got it. Th--...Thank you..?”, she says, biting down on her lip after letting that slip out. The cop simply shakes his head as she drives off. “Dumbass is gonna get himself killed.” Agnes pulls up towards “James”.
“Took you long enough. Do you have that last supply shipment?” “...Yeah… Yeah. I’ll unlock the back for you.”, she tells him. James motions another Metrocop over, and they head towards the back of the vehicle. Agnes pulls the sliding door open. “Get ready.”, she says as she unlocks the back doors. The Metrocops pull them open, only to get dragged into the back of the vehicle by the others. Daniel slams the doors shut, and the rest of them knock the two cops unconscious. Daniel turns his head towards the driver’s seat. “Agnes? You did not think this through very well.” “There are only six of us, what do you expect me to do? Just drive through the front gates and gun everyone down?”, she scoffs. “That’d make things easier.” She shakes her head. “We don’t get things easy nowadays. Now, uh… Hmm… Hey, Emma, most Metrocop suits are tailored to the average height of the adult male, right?” Emma pops her head up. “Uh… Yeah. Why?” Agnes turns towards the back. “Danny, Evan? You two are gonna get us on that train.” The two raise their heads. Daniel blinks. “Excuse me?” “Get in uniform.”, she tells him. Daniel sighs. “Weirdest feckin’ day of me life.”
After Daniel and Evan get in the CP uniforms, Amelia and Justin tie up and gag the CPs with spare rope. Agnes turns to the others. “Alright. Emma, sneak into the back. Here’s how we’re gonna get on board.” Emma steps around the other side of the APC and climbs into the back of the vehicle. Agnes continues. “I’m gonna pull up to the loading bay. Soon as you two step out, I want you to stack cargo up to provide some cover for the others to board the train. After that, you two are gonna load the cargo onto the train, and the rest of you are gonna hide inside those Combine crates.” Daniel looks at her. “That is a really shoddy plan.” She glares at him. “Daniel, I swear to god, I will come back there and stick my foot up your ass if you don’t stop complaining today. Get out there. Now.”
Danny and Evan hop out of the APC, stacking supply crates on top of one another. The group sneaks aboard the train, climbing into the supply crates that get loaded on board. Agnes carefully makes her way under the vehicle, and Daniel helps her to her feet. She climbs into the train car. “Soon as this thing gets going, you two sneak onto the back of the train car, and I’ll open it from the inside. Got it?” The two nod. Agnes hides behind some crates, and Daniel continues loading cargo. “Feckin’ hell, what do they put in these things?” “Considering some of the things I’ve seen?”, Evan asks. “I, for one, do not want to know.”
They finish loading cargo and Evan waves to the other Metrocops. “We’re good to go!” The train car’s folding door closes, and the train begins moving. When the other Metrocops turn their heads, Danny & Evan hop up onto the platform. Agnes opens the door, and they step inside. “Okay... We’re clear.” Agnes opens the Combine supply crates, and Emma pops her head out, gasping for air. “God damn it, those things are airtight!” Agnes quickly opens the rest of the crates, and helps everyone out. “Alright, everyone… Next stop: The United States.”

I don't want to be alive

I don't have anyone to talk to and I just need to get this off my chest. Full disclosure, this is a throwaway account
I don't want to be alive but I'm too much of a coward to end it.
It started about 3yrs ago when I met the love of my life. She was beautiful, funny, shared a lot of the same interests. At 36 I found belief in "soulmates". I knew she had a pretty shady past with relationships (cheating, etc) but I was honestly able to look past all that. It was love at first sight. She has 4 great kids (I never had any), and they all took to me fast, the youngest even calling me Daddy, even though her boo dad was still in the picture. She wasn't able to have any more kids naturally,but we had been considering looking into medical assistance to have one of our own {This plays later}. I've never been the kind of guy to get beautiful women, never felt I was that good looking. Kinda chubby, not great talking to women. But some how I found this beautiful, sexy woman that wanted me
We moved in together about 2yrs ago, and everything was great, perfect even. Then she got a a job at a casino near us, and everything started going south. Casinos, in general, are toxic. Internal drama, rumors, interpersonal "actiivities". I soon discovered, by accident, that she was still messaging some of her friends that were former lovers, or simp love interests (including one that worked at her casino - her supervisor. I accidently saw her texting one of them, and it was pretty inappropriate for friends. I sent a message to her "friend" at the casino, respectfully asking him not to flirt with her anymore, and apparantly I screwed up. I recognize I should have gone straight to her, but I didn't know how to properly broach the subject. That escalated into our very first fight, but we got through it. I thought she understood how i felt about her flirting with other men like she was, and she said she would stop. Around this time I also discovered that her best friend, who we were babysitting his kid, was also a former lover years ago, but I was OK with him,as we had met and became friendly
Afewmonths later I discovered she was texting another formerlover, this time sending pics of herself in bra/panties, and reminiscing over past sexual encounters, talking about how she "Loved when his toes curled when she sucked him off", and how he "Loved how she came while riding him". She would disappear for 3-8hrs after work, claiming to be going on drives to have time with herself to decompress, but I later found out that she was actually going to a male coworkers house, and was lying about it. This time I blew up, and it was worse after the last time,and her knowing how I felt about it. Not to mention know that he is mentally unstable, and sometimes prone to violence. He played the victim, and she went on the defensive over her actons, saying how it was harmless, and the pics weren't nude. This fight led to me moving into our spare bedroom for a few months. During that time I felt low, my self esteem was destroyed. I met a girl at work,and even though it never became sexual, we flirtedalot. I honestly wasn't sure if our relationship was over, or would heal. I know it was wrong,and I take full responsibility for my actions, nor try to makee excuses.
She had sent some unsolicited nudes, and I didn't stop her. None others were sent after those. At one point she had made a pretty dark joke,and not thinking I made a joke about wanting her to have my babies. The flirting remained light after that, and I had told her I was in a relationship, but it was not in a good place. I think she was taking pity on meandflirting to make me feel better. Shortly after that my GF and I had started to reconcile, I moved back into our room, and even though the flirting didn't stop completely, it died down alot. In the course of reconciling, I agreed to try to be more understanding of her flirtatious nature, and I continued to lightly flirt with the girl at work.
One night I forgot my phone at home, and my GF got on and started going through everything. I don't have to spell out how that went over. She pieced together who the pics were from (I honestly can't say why I even kept them), and read through all the messages. Even though the babies comment was made as a joke, she didn't take it that way, and started texting with the girl at work. It blew up, and she almost left, but we agreed to try to work through everything. I completely broke contact with the girl at work, but GF still kept the flirty friends.
About 5 months later I had a major falling out with my family, finding out my brother had manipulated my mother into disowning me {eventhough I was taking care of her in her failing health}, and then my entire family disowned me, my brother literally wishing me dead, and trying to destroy my legal credibility. I was able to survive, mentally and emotionally, only because I had my GF and her family(who basically adopted me last year).
Even though things were seeming to get better, apparently they were getting worse between us. Our sex life went from almost every day, to 1-2 aweek, to sometimes 1-2 amonth. With COVID I lost my (great) job, so as backup I went to work where my GF works. Last month my cousin had a heart attack and died, and I took it hard {we were more like siblings growing up, but adult life we drifted apart}, and then my brother started in with his crap, trying to make it even worse, trying to egg me to suicide. Again, I survived all this because of my GF and her family. By this point,however, we were fighting more than making love.
2 weeks ago, during another fight, she broke everything off and moved into the spare room, moving everything of her within a day, took away my key to our van, changed all the wifi passwords, and told our youngest she didn't have to call me daddy anymore. And pretty sure she's already had sex with someone else to prove she's over me. One of the biggest thing that hurts, and affects my self esteem and thinking about ending it, is I suffer from chronic pain, neuropathy and gout, and one of the side effects is severe sweating. She keeps saying one of the big things in the break up, is I smell different, and she's not attracted to me anymore. The biggest part of that is the pain sweats causing a change in BO, not gross, just stronger than normal. Even though she hassaid, multiple times, that unchangeable medical conditions would never change her thinking,since she also suffers from different type of chronic pain {Migraines}. I'm not looking for sympathy, I know I've done so much wrong
This leads to now, and my emotional rock bottom. In 1 instant I lost my GF {who I was literally planning to propose to at Christmas}, my kids, my friends {that were hers originally}, independent transportation, set a countdown to being homeless {we rent a house together}, and probably die alone.
I've considered the different ways to end it, but all scare me that I might faill and survive. This isn't a"cry for help", or a pity party for sympathy, that's why I used my throw away. I just needed to get this off my chest before I get up the courage to do it. Talk to Reddit like it was a person. I've heard all the normal platitudes, "You'll get through this", "There's other fish", "You have so much to live for". I don't though. I literally don't have anything, and even closer to having less, probably skipping the last month of rent to get a cheap car to live in. If I go that long.
This isn't a cry for help, maybe it's my manifesto, or my final note. I just know I needed to talk about it. I'll probably get some that will laugh it off and call me an attention seeker, glad I could lighten your day. I doubt it will be today, or tomorrow. But maybe I'll eventually build up the courage. Some will call me weak, or a coward for thinking this way. I already know. You can't insult me more than I do myself. I don't even know if I'll log on to this account again. I'm not condoning the course of action I'm considering, please don't do what I'm considering.
If you've made it this far I'm sorry, this wasn't originally a rant. It all just kinda poured out

Exchanging Euro cash in US?

Hey gang!
I have a weird issue. I was in Europe in March right as everything was shutting down. As I was leaving, I got my security deposit back from my apartment. This was about 500 Euros. This was obviously more than I could spend in the airport on my way home, and I had already closed my European bank account so I couldn't send myself the money the way I was doing before (Euro bank to Transferwise to US Bank).
Now, months later, I still have about 500 Euro that I'm looking to exchange. EUR to USD has an awesome exchange rate right now (1.2) but, of course, I can't cash out. My bank (credit union) and AAA said they haven't been able to exchange currency since March. The one place I found that's open gave me a rate of 1.08 (which isn't the worst). The other thing I had seen mentioned here was casinos. The casino near me on the East Coast says they only do USD. I see Vegas can do foreign currency for a pretty good rate, and I do plan on heading West soon for some traveling anyhow. I feel like I'm wasting time keeping it in cash since its value is just deflating anyhow. I even emailed Bitcoin of America ATMs to see if I could just put Euros in there to buy BTC (I doubt it).
Do I: 1) Exchange it now at a rate of 1.08 2) Hold out until I get to Vegas (maybe a couple months) and risk a lower exchange rate, casinos being closed from COVID, the lost time in the market, etc. 3) Just keep it in cash until my next trip to Europe (probably a couple years)
Any other options? Would Atlantic City do foreign currency in the casino? Does anyone want to trade me some Euros for USD ha ha.
Any help is appreciated!

Best “Sucker Bet” Ever... Literally

A casino near me recently pushed out a progressive bet onto their Double Deck Blackjack games called ‘Blazing 7s, that was a variation of one they already had on 6-deck games. The jackpot on the original was based on 3 suited 7s, so obviously a change needed to be made for double deck... but they REALLY messed up. I’ll provide the pay tables before expressing in detail what will be obvious.
6-deck: ($5 or $25 options for the bet) 1. Player has any 7 in starting hand: 2 for 1 2. Player has pair of 7s: 25 for 1 3. Player pair of 7s and dealer up card 7: 200 for 1 4. All 3 7s same color: 10% jackpot 5. All 3 7s same suit: jackpot.
2-deck: ($25 bet) 1. Player has any 7: 5 for 1 2. Player has pair of 7s: 300 for 1 3. Player has pair of 7s and dealer up card 7: 10% 4. All three 7s same color: jackpot.
Now in double deck, the odds of getting a specific pocket pair would be derived by (8/104) x (7/103), which is equal to 56/10,712, or 1/191.3.
This means that they’re going to pay 300 for 1 for something that happens every 191 hands!!!! This alone breaks the bet ridiculously!
Stealing from wizard of odds that one 7 hits about 14.2% of hands... this payout is grotesquely broken.
How broken is it?
Every 1000 hands played you should spend $25,000 on the bet. You should receive 142 payouts for one 7, totaling $17,750. You should receive 5.2 pairs of 7s totaling $39,000, and some of those pairs could potentially pay even more.
Assuming the jackpot never hits, you’re expected as the player to make $31,750 every 1,000 hands, or profit $31.75 every time you place the bet!!!
An optimal strategy here would be to play 3 hands minimum bet ($100 per hand as this was high limit) with the progressive wager every hand. Assuming the house edge on BJ was about 0.5% (a fair assumption as it is 3/2 with no severe limitations on the game) the EV on each hand is: ($31.75x3) - ($0.50x3), or +$93.75 each hand dealt.
Yes this is real. It was live on the floor for 2 or 3 days before being taken down. To my knowledge it SOMEHOW didn’t get a TON of action, likely because most people just assume it’s another sucker bet? Alas, this is my story of the best sucker bet ever.

Something I sit on a lot and found a place to put it. A Support Character based on TCG and Gambling

This was taken with many mashed up concepts and inspirations. Mainly, young Sombra, Kakegurui, Marvel's Gambit, and Imani from PaladinsGame Side-
Taalo-Support
HP-200
P. Fire- Ma- Projectile-35dmg per shot and burst at range for 5-10dmg-30 per reload.Taalo uses his deck to
Ability 1- 4-6sec cooldown- Targets like Ana's Boost with around a similar range to Mercy's heals- 1. Counting Cards- Affected's Ability Cooldowns reduce by 20%* to affected teammate or heals for 25 if nothing is on cooldown- 2. Deck Stacking- Boost Ultimate charge rate by 5% for 6secs.
Ability 2- 10sec cooldown- 1. Pig- Give/Gain 150 armor, when destroyed heals the team by damage taken- 2. Full Flush- Throw five cards in a line that heal or damage for 60- if affected by Ability 1 heal is increased by 25
Ability 3- Code Switch- Alternates other Abilities from 1-2- On shift to ability setting 2, gain 100 armor
Ult- Deck Milling- Give 25% Ult charge to your team (excluding you) and release a surge of healing in a circle radius (same radius as Sound Barrier) that equates to 60heals per sec for 5sec. Those affected by heal has their cooldowns cut in half
Lore-
Born of Chamorro and Samoan decent, Jake Quintanilla was not one to be without a few unbolted screws cause of the harsh but friendly nature of the island. Of course, being born during the end of the Omnic Crisis and Rise of OW was not exactly the best either for the growing of the next child prodigy burnout.
Of course, he loved the island. It was his home yet at the ripe age of 16, finding that he could squeeze his way into Overwatch HQ with help of a 'simple' TCG. He screeched. Instantly zipping to buy a deck and go through the starter tournaments. Of course, tribulation had overcome the man as he had lost his training tournament at 5th place.
Yet stubbornness was that of a trait imbued within. Try and try as he may, he found comfort in the strategy games and cards. Learned the meta, the strategies, the luck and probability. Soon, he was at one of the tours of Overwatch at the age of 18.
It was of course one of those simple publicity stunts to humanize the group but he was totally okay with it. He had seen some of the most famous people in the world. From Dr. Angela to a zippy young pilot going out to a test. As curious as he used to be, he had strayed when finding the bathroom
Yet only to find one of his biggest idols, Dr. Liao. He had freaked like a child on christmas. He had seemed ecstatic by the simple gesture of seeing her. It seemed he had walked on a project but she seemed happy in a way. It wasnt common to see someone idolize the creator of Omnics.
Time grew on as Dr. Liao and Jake, only to realize Jake had to leave. Though, it seemed Dr. Liao had grew fond. Two weeks had passed after the incident and Jake was back as an apprentice/intern and soon a Engineer.
Then Dr. Liao died and he went offline until the transfer of a certain egg. Moving to a new location ordered by the name Taalo. The name only connected to two other sources, a offshore account in W. Samoa and a mysterious high-payer at a Dirty Casino near Route 66.
Open to any critcism. In no way, would this be for a competition or actual gameplay. I just thought it'd be fun to make a Oceanic hero not part of the stereotypes of big guy with tattoos that is a toss and turn for laconic nor vaguely hinted as one. (i love Roadhog but come on! Is it a reference to the fact that the closest thing to the Forgotten World is New Zealand?) Plus who doesnt love a nerdy reference and gambling reference
Edit: Also, imagine his backstory's TCG is just Hearthstone. I know some of yall want to

Self exclusion

The first time I really gambled when I was 19, me and my buddy needed to pay rent. We pooled our little cash we had @ the time, about $150 and went to a local 18+ card room to try and make $750! We were basically out of money when we put $25 all in on 3 card poker and hit a straight flush for $1K. Not only did we make the rent, we both had an extra $125 to party for the weekend.
17 years later I’m 36 and have been gambling a lot ever since. Losing thousands of dollars over the years. Starting and stoping. Pretending it was “fun” or “controlled.” I have been betting sports almost everyday for 2 years. over the last few months me and my long time Gf have been having problems. We started couples counseling. And through self reflection, and her perspective I’ve seen how bad it is for my psyche and over all mental health. And my bank account. So I self excluded from the 2 casinos near my house this week. One is a lifetime ban and one is only 1 year. I feel a huge sense of relief. I’ve also closed down all my online sports accounts. It’s only been since Sunday where I had bets on NFL. Everyone I know who also gambles has said “once a gambler, always a gambler” but as of now I’m no longer a gambler. And I feel the most sense of relief and happiness I have in a long time.

I heard a very believable rumor about my girlfriend cheating and I don't know what to think

I have been with my girlfriend for 2 years. She is 41 and I am 42. We don't live together and work different hours so we typically only spend time together on the weekends.
I never had any reason not to trust her. However a couple weeks ago a friend of mine told me her 23 year old daughter said that she was talking to her friend who is a blackjack dealer at a casino near my girlfriend's house. My girlfriend and I go there a few times a month.
Somehow my name was brought up between my friend's daughter and her friend who deals cards at the casino. The dealer said my girlfriend comes in there alone quite a bit and had recently told her she hooked up with a guy she was playing cards with.
My friend's daughter arranged for me to talk to the blackjack dealer and the dealer had no issues about speaking with me.
When she called me I asked if she knew who I was and she said yes and that my "wife" and I come in together a lot.
She went on to say that my girlfriend comes in alone several nights a month and that about a month ago she was playing cards with an older woman and her son. When the woman and her son got up and left my girlfriend bragged that she hooked up with that guy. She then said my girlfriend claimed her and I had broken up and that's when she hooked up with him.
Naturally I couldn't sit on this and asked my girlfriend about it. She denied it of course and planned to confront the blackjack dealer. She threatened to cause a scene if I didn't give her the dealer's number.
My girlfriend messaged her and called her a liar and the dealer responded "I don't have time to make up lies"
On one hand this girl is 23, but there really isn't a motive behind this. On the flip side of this she had a specific date it happened and had a detailed story.
I am torn and feel like I am a fool either way. Either I end the relationship based on a rumor told to me by a person half my age, or I just ignore how detailed and unprovoked this rumor is and continue dating my potentially dishonest and disrespectful girlfriend.

Tips on my first time playing live.

I’m like 6 months in so a noob. I really enjoy the strategical aspect of poker and after posting here a few times you guys have been super cool.
I’ve been doing a microstakes challenge online and had a fair amount of success, but I’d really like to try to play 1/2 live at a casino near me. I know a bunch of you guys are really serious players invested in playing for a living, but like I said I enjoy the game. I’m middle aged, late 20’s, and lucky enough to have a good career, so a night or two playing isn’t going to hurt me financially I just want to experience the real deal for the first time.
My question is, what’s the environment like playing low stakes live? Is there anything to know before hand etiquette wise? Are people going to get pissed if I ask questions? Do people have fun or are there a bunch of try hards memorizing range sheets that wear hoodies and sunglasses and shit? How much should I bring and how much should I buy in for initially?
Thanks guys.

Day 1

Hey all, I’ve been reading the posts here for awhile and figured it might help to speak with some people going through the same thing. At the beginning of this year I had a job that paid 125k a year, and absolutely zero debt in any form. When I discovered gambling it was on a company vacation, out of the country we visited a small casino in the DR. While i didn’t lose much, maybe only a few hundred bucks, I was extremely intrigued. Upon returning back home I ventured to a casino near my home town alone, and that’s where it began. Since then I have racked up a total wager anount of several million dollars, amassed debt upwards of 100,000$, lost my job , my car, and several relationships including my fiancé. At 24 years old I’ve been told that I have my whole life ahead of me and I can pull through this somehow, but the second I find any hope of money at all they might as well direct deposit it to the casinos bank account it’s ridiculous. I have since filled out the forms to permanently ban myself from all land based casinos in my country but now the online ones own me. How can I stop...?

Blackjack Spreadsheet for online casino?

Hey!

New to this community and would like to ask you guys something.
Recently, I was looking for playing some online casinos since casinos near me seem to be dangerous.
I found some youtube videos that calculates odd of the game.
You guys think they are legit?
One video sells his spreadsheet for $125.
I do not want spend that money if the spreadsheet is meaningless.

Thanks!
