Aokise (Resolve) Ch. 15 Up

It’s been another long break between chapters, but the new one is indeed up with plot development over filler since I want to move things forward. Enjoy.

(This is linking to 14 instead of 15 because FF updates slowwwwly apparently. So maybe read 14 to catch up in the meantime? orz)

Déjà Vu

Déjà vu is the experience of being certain that you have experienced or seen a new situation previously – you feel as though the event has already happened or is repeating itself.

The experience is usually accompanied by a strong sense of familiarity and a sense of eeriness, strangeness, or weirdness. The “previous” experience is usually attributed to a dream, but sometimes there is a firm sense that it has truly occurred in the past.

Déjà Vécu

Déjà vécu is what most people are experiencing when they think they are experiencing deja vu.

Déjà vu is the sense of having seen something before, whereas déjà vécu is the experience of having seen an event before, but in great detail – such as recognizing smells and sounds. 

Déjà Visité

Déjà visité is a less common experience and it involves an uncanny knowledge of a new place. For example, you may know your way around a a new town or a landscape despite having never been there, and knowing that it is impossible for you to have this knowledge. 

Déjà Senti

Déjà senti is the phenomenon of having “already felt” something. This is exclusively a mental phenomenon and seldom remains in your memory afterwards.

You could think of it as the feeling of having just spoken, but realizing that you, in fact, didn’t utter a word.

Jamais Vu

Jamais vu (never seen) describes a familiar situation which is not recognized. It is often considered to be the opposite of déjà vu and it involves a sense of eeriness. The observer does not recognize the situation despite knowing rationally that they have been there before.

Chris Moulin, of Leeds University, asked 92 volunteers to write out “door” 30 times in 60 seconds. He reported that 68% of the precipitants showed symptoms of jamais vu, such as beginning to doubt that “door” was a real word. This has lead him to believe that jamais vu may be a symptom of brain fatigue.

Presque Vu

Presque vu is very similar to the “tip of the tongue” sensation – it is the strong feeling that you are about to experience an epiphany – though the epiphany seldom comes. 

L’esprit de l’Escalier

L’esprit de l’escalier (stairway wit) is the sense of thinking of a clever comeback when it is too late. 

Capgras Delusion

Capgras delusion is the phenomenon in which a person believes that a close friend or family member has been replaced by an identical looking impostor. This could be tied in to the old belief that babies were stolen and replaced by changelings in medieval folklore, as well as the modern idea of aliens taking over the bodies of people on earth to live amongst us for reasons unknown. This delusion is most common in people with schizophrenia but it can occur in other disorders.

Fregoli Delusion

Fregoli delusion is a rare brain phenomenon in which a person holds the belief that different people are, in fact, the same person in a variety of disguises. It is often associated with paranoia and the belief that the person in disguise is trying to persecute them.

It was first reported in 1927 in the case study of a 27-year-old woman who believed she was being persecuted by two actors whom she often went to see at the theatre. She believed that these people “pursued her closely, taking the form of people she knows or meets”.

Prosopagnosia

Prosopagnosia is a phenomenon in which a person is unable to recognize faces of people or objects that they should know. People experiencing this disorder are usually able to use their other senses to recognize people – such as a person’s perfume, the shape or style of their hair, the sound of their voice, or even their gait. A classic case of this disorder was presented in the 1998 book (and later Opera by Michael Nyman) called “The man who mistook his wife for a hat”.

Hey, random question going out to the homestucks today (I know you’re there- my dash is covered in you guys). Are there any sites like Cherubplay that aren’t solely homestuck related? I really like their prompt/answer system but I’m just not into homestuck enough to rp it. I’ve tried looking into this but found nothing helpful. I’m assuming that means there isn’t anything quite like it out there, but I’d like to be as sure as possible.

Anyway, thanks in advance for any help. Hope your birthday/anniversary thing today goes well?

After 4 months of labor, we present to you our Homestuck tribute for 4/13! Thanks to everyone for their hard work and cooperation in this project—it was a huge effort to put together and it sounds like everything I would have dreamed it to be! I hope you guys enjoy it, because Homestuck has come a long way and I’m happy to be a part of its community. Cal also took 10 years off his life mixing this, so I think he needs a little love.

Lyrics:

KARKAT: Greetings, worthless human!

JOHN: Start the game, counting down til the end of the world.
ROSE: Building up to get him in; I need to write it all down.
JOHN: Gotta move, the meteors are heading straight for the house.
DAVE: It’s just so stupid that this game is really not worth the try.
ROSE: Dave, shut up, and maybe finally we’ll get out alive.
DAVE: Strifing battles, here’s your bottle, now I’ve gotta wait out this egg in time.

JADE: I can see our game will really need a spark,
JADE: The world, destroyed, take a shot into the dark,
BETAS: Let’s see how far we’ve come!
BETAS: Let’s see how far we’ve come!

VRISKA: Well I believe, with help, you’ll be a great kid.
KANAYA: If not, don’t go if the Furthest Ring bids.
TEREZI: Let’s see the stocks to trade!
KARKAT: Let’s guess the passwords made!

KARKAT: I think I heard a distant honk; fuck, I don’t really know.
SOLLUX: But everything is now okay, wow, where’d my sight go?
ERIDAN: There’s no hope left and we’ve gotta join Jack Noir.
FEFERI: I won’t tolerate and I can’t excuse you!
KANAYA: Took a chainsaw to flesh; I’m really out for blood.
GAMZEE: Motherfucking world is rotting and I’ll strike it with clubs.
TEREZI: Say a goodbye because I’m on my way to find and kill you!

TAVROS: I believe I need to show them who is boss!
ARADIA: Let’s go rejoice, paths have finally crossed.
TROLLS: Let’s see how far we’ve come!
TROLLS: Let’s see how far we’ve come!

EQUIUS: Stay, no matter what, in the vents until the end.
NEPETA: I won’t! I can’t! I will never just pretend!
TROLLS: Some lives were cruelly lost,
TROLLS: But reunite our cause.

DIRK: And they scrapped, scratched, it was all reset.
ROXY: It was another game to play for us to hack it again.
JAKE: And we were fools, used just to turn on ourselves.
JANE: Now it’s overly sweet, and time will never just tell.

DIRK: Timelines mix, match, intersect on a whim.
ROXY: Hold us hostage ‘cause you never wanted us to all win
JAKE: But we fight back, you’ll never keep us down
JANE: And when we pull all it through, we’ll be keeping that crown.

JANE+JAKE: We will see this all to the very bloody end
DIRK+ROXY: We’ll stay alive and we’ll fight for all our friends
ALPHAS: Let’s see how far we’ve come!
Let’s see how far we’ve come!

JANE+ROXY: We’ll win this game, you’ll see, determination is the key
JAKE+DIRK: Our hopes, our hearts, and every one of our dreams
ALPHAS: Let’s see how far we’ve come!
Let’s see how far we’ve come!

BETA KIDS: Let’s see how far we’ve come
Let’s see how far we’ll go
TROLLS: Let’s see how far we’ve come
Let’s see how far we’ll go
ALPHAS KIDS: Let’s see how far we’ve come
Let’s see how far we’ll go
ALL: Let’s see how far we’ve come

JOHN: You have a feeling it’s going to be a long day.
