++When Ignis approaches Regis the drunk guy grabs Ignis's crotch

+++The council guy gets kicked off the council or his title gets stripped away for embarassing whatever visiting country he represents

Why Comcast Sent Me Pizza
Ian Bogost,
The Atlantic

Brands -- well, #brands may be the more accurate term here -- do all sorts of things that seem like they're rewarding you, dear customer, for some action or loyalty. The Atlantic dives into how these acts of kindness and mountains (literally) of freebies almost always stem from an ulterior motive, especially when social media is part of the equation. Just because Comcast sends you a stack of pizzas, doesn't mean you're best pals.

Several big events were cancelled this year, leading to a number of questions about what the future holds. And that future may be broadcast on the internet for you to watch at home.

This group posed as Russian trolls and bought political ads on Google. It was easy. Charlie Warzel, BuzzFeed News

In the midst of a massive backlash that Google (and others) are facing over meddling, it's still too easy for the trolls to buy ads

Gen - Noctis secretly uses dark Lucian magic
Because after centuries of royal magic-wielders casting spells and whatnot, there's gotta be some like forbidden book hidden somewhere in the Citadel with bad magic in it.

Noctis gets his hands on whatever bad stuff Regis had hidden away and finds a multitude of very power spells and magic that he had never heard of before. Curiosity gets the best of him so he whisks it away back to his apartment and decides to try one out that night.

These spells were hidden away for a good reason, as he eventually comes to find out.


+++ He starts out with minor spells at first but eventually tests his limit with a more powerful one, and that's when things start to go bad
++++++ A lot of the spells are blood magic, meaning Noct needs to sacrifice his own blood to make it work right (and later hide the marks so no one will notice)
+++++++++ The consequences range from minor to major; say, a minor spells means that he ends up with a migraine and it makes his nose bleed while a major spell allows a daemon to spawn inside the walls of Insomnia and cause panic

H-France Reviews - Taking Liberties: from the French Revolution to Napoleon
Rebecca Spang’s erudite yet immensely entertaining paper is a study of “frivolity” in the era of the Directory, commonly associated with light-heartedness, superficiality and even lewd behaviour after the austerity of the Terror. French writers attempting to defend their national character argued that only a small percentage were truly “frivolous”; at any rate, the idea that frivolity, like political upheaval, might be specific to the French, served to reassure conservative foreign readers--the British in particular--that the threat of Revolution was contained. However, Spang goes beyond this assertion to examine the underlying causes of the French reputation for frivolity, and argues that an interesting shift was taking place: “luxury” was gradually replaced by “pleasure”, a more personalized category. Whereas “luxury” had some negative connotations left over from the era of the Maximum, “pleasure” was increasingly associated with Paris shops and goods, and consumption of “frivolous” items perceived by lawmakers and administrators as “an economic imperative for the nation” (p. 122). Some of the themes described will be familiar to those who know Spang’s earlier piece with Colin Jones, but their inclusion here is important for the volume and does not seem repetitive.[3]

Ignis/unknown, unfortunate secret admirer(s)
Someone keeps on leaving flowers and other gifts on Ignis’s desk, delivered to his house, or left in places Ignis would find them. Ignis, who is very much not a romantic, finds the attentions bothersome and irritating. Especially because he is allergic to flower pollen, and the flowers keep getting left in front of the fan in his office, and the chocolates melt on important paperwork, and other things that drive Ignis up the walls.

+++ Ignis discovers who it is, and tells them that he will go on a date with them if they promise never to make an extravagant romantic gesture ever again, because he will kill them.
