2021.12.08 19:00 AbortionSurvivor777 Has anyone read a Hero's Journey type story without the typical Refusal of the Call?

In a hero's journey story, one of the initial defining segments is the Refusal of the Call, where the hero initially is reluctant to answer the call to action (usually because of risk or something else that ties them to their current life).
A friend and I were having a hypothetical discussion about this common aspect of the story being subverted by having the hero excited to take the call but then realizes that the journey is dangerous and not at all what they expected. They quickly regret their decision before coming to terms with it after some struggle.
It seems like this trope of a character biting off more than they can chew is common, but neither one of us could think of any distinct examples that could otherwise still fit the Hero's Journey template in other aspects. So if you have any examples to share I'd love to hear it.

2021.12.08 19:00 Charming_Self_5113 No refund??

My event got cancelled and it has been nearly 2 months with no refund. I have called stubhub multiple times they said that they sent the refund over but my bank says there’s no refund processing or anything. One lady I talked to from stubhub even hung up on me? My bank said to wait a couple days just to make sure it’s not coming then they will dispute it for me. But wtf?? What kind of company is this lol. Is anyone having a similar experience? It’s over $500 there was no concert that’s literally theft at this point?? 😐

2021.12.08 19:00 liamsjtaylor Is there a reason why you can't equip any Zombies camos anymore?

Since the Pacific update it seems that you physically can't equip any Zombies camos to any Cold War or Vanguard guns. Anything that already has a camo on still has it, but for some reason the option to equip any others has gone.
Is there any reason behind this or is it just Activision fucking up with something again?
When/if they fix it they'll probably just allow the Vanguard ones and ignore Cold War guns.
At least it's not as bad as when you couldn't apply any variants. 😒

2021.12.08 19:00 ChonkySeals67 Housemate advice

I am in a bit of a situation. I live with 4 other housemates (all girls). I was the last one to join the house so the girls were all close friends before I joined. It was mine and one of the others girls birthday last week, we agreed not to do anything on the day and all go out for food when we are free some time next week. We had a house Christmas dinner planned for tomorrow, I bought all the stuff, and I am told today that at 7 pm tomorrow WE are all going out for birthday meal to a completely different place than previously agreed and somehow the Christmas dinner is scrapped? Am I overreacting? I feel not included at all, I don’t want to go. Any advice?

2021.12.08 19:00 0Bonbons0 My 1 year old cat had a seizure and I wish I knew what caused it...

Species: Cat (female) Age: 1 and a half Breed: moggy/tabby Spayed Weight: 3.2kg
Maia has not had any health issues prior to this and has been fully vaccinated.
A couple of weeks ago I woke up to a strange noise and saw Maia on the floor. Her limbs were violently twitching and I thought she was choking. I put her on the bed and was panicking. I thought she was about to die... After a minute or two she stopped and looked up at me confused and started meowing. After another minute she was back to normal.
I took her to the vets the same day and they did a blood test. The only thing they found were her liver enzymes were quite high.
I then took her for a belly scan two days ago but the vet said her liver looks fine and to do another blood test in a few weeks to check her enzyme levels again. He did find sludge in her gallbladder though which he said is quite rare in cats. I've never heard of this before but she is going on Ursodeoxycholic acid (which I will pick up tomorrow).
I am not sure what I'm posting on here for. I guess I'm wondering if anyone has experienced something similar? Or any idea what could cause sludge in her gallbladder?
Any advice would be appreciated.
