The Bell And Why It Goes Through Hell

It has a sleek shape and a beautiful color palette and to top it off it has a clock face on it! In my opinion, that makes this (The Bell) a really cool-looking claymore. But, the sad thing is that when many Genshin players think of The Bell, they immediately diss it. For this, I don’t understand why. So, even though many may disagree with this article today, I am going to offer up some of my own opinions as to why I think using The Bell can have its advantages. Especially if used properly. So let’s get started, shall we?

First off, let’s talk about that shield it gives us eh?

It triggers about every 45 seconds and acts as a great shield to block damage. Plus, every time this shield is activated, the character that has this claymore equipped gets an increase in damage. The amount increased varies on how many times you have ascended it. But, even at a Rank 2 ascension, it packs a decent punch at 15 percent. And the amount of damage it can take (the shield) is dependent on the max HP stat. This percentage increase with each ascension as well. So, therefore the Bell makes a pretty good claymore for support characters and healing ones.

Sayu, for example, I find utilizes The Bell quite well, to be honest. With her already good defense and healing stats (as long as you have a good artifact set), The Bell increases her capabilities and helpfulness so-to-speak for your team.

Now, I currently have Diluc using The Bell. It may not be the most efficient weapon for him at the moment, but I’ve used it since I first got it when I pulled Diluc at the same time. So for the longest time, it has served me well. Especially since–at least in my case, I can’t seem to get ahold of any claymores. It’s actually once in a blue moon occurrence, even with the Debate Club.

So all in all, I think people highly underestimate The Bell. Or at the very least, don’t know how to utilize it properly. Most probably think that since it’s a high-ranking weapon and a claymore, it is naturally supposed to be for tank characters or characters with a very high DPS. As I’ve explained, it’s not the case. It can be a wonderful weapon for healers and support characters. Even with Noelle, it works quite efficiently. So I highly suggest not overlooking this weapon and enhancing it at least a rank or two. It could come in handy if you pull a healer or support.

Well, that’s all this Fae has to say,

A Girl, Her PS4 Controller, And A Laptop

Genshin Impact. One of my favorite games to play at this moment. It really wouldn’t be a stretch to say I’m obsessed with it. Hey, it’s a destresser for me, what can I say? Anyhoot, It’s very handy with a mouse, I will admit this but, the second you try to use a mouse when you have the laptop that you play on–my current circumstance, it becomes…rather inconvenient. That’s why I chose to try to use my PS4 controller with it when I make my laptop mobile. Read try my friends. In the end, it worked, but what a ride this little bugger (the PS4 controller) put me through just to make it work with my laptop.

So, cut to me first finding out that I can connect my PS4 controller to my laptop via Bluetooth. That world perfectly the first time through.

The first time.

The second time when I wanted to boot up my PS4 controller with my laptop so I could use it for Genshin, it did not connect to my laptop as I hoped. Nope, suddenly I hear a beep and the familiar whirring noises of my PS4 in the other room telling me that my controller was still connected to my console–seeing that I reconnected it with the console the other day after its laptop use so I could play on the PS4. But, I thought it would just naturally reconnect to my laptop as soon as I enabled Bluetooth and followed the previous steps: Press the PS4 button and the options button at the same time, and have the laptop look for nearby Bluetooth devices. Yea, a lot of good that did me. 

So then, I research a way to hook it up by cable. Thought that was easy: just plug it in, and download software so the laptop can communicate with the controller, bada bing bada boom. Heh, if it only was that easy. 

I tried this and even found the software but, it needed another software with it to be compatible with my computer. So after a google search, ten minutes of me swearing at my controller and technology in general, I found the program and installed it. 

Finally, after waiting for it to download and sync up with the unzipped program contents of the software downloaded prior, huzzah I got it to work! Let me tell you, even though I learned a lot from this it was a trip and a half to go through all of those motions. I’m just glad it’s actually really worth all of the agony and swearing because it honestly makes gameplay a lot easier. Don’t get me wrong, I love using my mouse, but when you have been using a controller with other consoles for years and just barely decide to come into the PC gaming world, the controller just feels like second nature. 

Just take heed from my own mistakes, loves. Make sure you read very well what software needs to work with and all of the extra ways you can hook up your devices. Because if one or two ways fail, and trust me, they will, you’ll need to know other ways. On the plus side, I learned how to troubleshoot pretty well. 

Well, this ends my little rant and story. I hope all of you guys don’t have to face the same irritation I did if you find yourself ever needing to hook a controller up to your computer. If I can save one person with this rant, I have done my job. Also, if any of y’all have some funny or interesting tech problem stories, I’d love to hear them! We can facepalm together!

That’s all for now…

Mama, I’m in Love With a Fictional Character ~ Bring It On! Childe x Fem! Reader Pt. 1

“Ugh, you’ve got to be kidding me.” You groan as you stare down at your newest assignment: Head to Liyue and tell the Harbinger that already cause a god-sized amount of trouble, to lay off of one of the vendors that just came in from Mondstadt.  It was a lot more linguistically complicated than that, but in layman’s terms, it was going to be a long week.

Letting out a short puff of air through your nose, you stare down at the papers again and let out a small chuckle. “Well, at least I get to visit Ningguang.” You mutter.

“Got a new assignment eh?”

You turn from your desk and look up at the newcomer in the doorway. “Kaeya, hey. Yea, Jean is sending me out to take care of everyone’s favorite little Harbinger. “Tartaglia”, or Childe I believe Aether said his name was. Ningguang wants me specifically to look into it so I can’t turn it down.”

Kaeya gives a knowing smile. “You think this time you may find your soulmate?”

You snort and look down at your wrist where the quick and messy scrawl you’ve gotten used to seeing all of your life was located. Glady, just prepare yourself Girlie.

“Honestly? I doubt it. Because what could possibly put me in a situation to ever hear those words in the first place?”

“Now, now. You never know. Who knows, it may even be that Harbinger.”

The corner of your mouth curls up into a smirk. And you whack him on the arm with the report as you walk past, your black leather boots clunking against the floorboards with each step. “Yea like that’s going to happen. Well, see you in about a week.”

Kaeya puts a comforting hand on your shoulder. “Be safe (Y/n).”

“Always am.”


You breathe in the fresh ocean air as you look over the docks of Liyue Harbor. It’s been quite some time since I’ve been back here. You think. Even though it’s practically Teyvat’s biggest place for business and trade it hasn’t changed too much since I’ve been here last.

“Still like you remember, sister?”

You smile as you hear the smooth voice come up behind you. “Hey sis. Long time no see. Yea, it hasn’t changed too much, still looks like the Liyue I remember. How’ve you been? And I’m surprised you choose to meet me out by the docks instead of the Jade Palace.”

Ningguang just gives a small smile and pulls you into a hug. “What, I can’t meet my own flesh and blood in the middle of the same city we both ran circles around when we were children?”

You chuckle and shake your head. “You know what I mean,” then with a sigh, you look back over to the boats and the various vendor stalls that littered the docks. “So, where is that fiery redhead I’ve been hearing so much about?”

“You’re sweet to worry, but I’ll be fine. We both know I can hold my own. As for the Harbinger, he should be around right about—”


“Huh, now.”

You jump slightly at the loud explosion and then direct your gaze in the direction of the blast. It came from just barely underneath where you and Ningguang stood. You could hear some shouts and you saw blasts of a Hydro vision going off.

“Well, that’s my cue. Consider this pain in the ass dealt with Sis. Meet for tea at Xiangling’s family restaurant after?” You say as you start moving towards the blast, your Electro vision glowing with anticipation.

Ningguang chuckles. “I almost feel bad for the poor fool. Of course, and you’ll definitely have to tell me how this fight turns out.”

You smirk. “Will do.”

Another blast rings out, this time followed by a cocky chuckle. “You know, if you would just pay us on time I wouldn’t have to come here all the time. Then again, I do appreciate a way to pass the time. Although, you could at least try to fight back instead of cowering.”

Tch. He really is the arse that everyone makes him out to be. Does he have no shame? The Fatui are known for sporadically increasing their prices or deciding the payback date is sooner than promised. Diluc’s anger is definitely not misplaced that’s for sure.

Your twin daggers appear in your hands as you take a running head start and jump down towards the vendor and face the harbinger. You click your teeth as you take in the sight before you. The harbinger was standing over the vendor with a bow draw and it pulsed with the energy from his Hydro vision.

He would actually be quite handsome if he wasn’t Fatui. His wild reddish-brown hair, blue eyes that even from where you stood were bright with excitement, yet held a certain emptiness to them. Not to mention the outfit he was wearing. A little odd in appearance but it did make him look good.

You shook your head slightly. No, bad (Y/n). No simping over a Fatui. Even if there was something that drew you to him. Some kind of energy around him told of something much more than the battle-thirsty boy mere feet away.

“Oi! You cocky little twerp! Pick on someone your own size for once!”

The harbinger stiffened for a moment and then you saw his face circle through various emotions even if you could only partially see his face since he was still turned away from you.

Shock. Disbelief. Hope. Happiness.

But as he turned to you he still wore the cockiest smirk you have ever seen on a man. Although instead of hollow pools of blue that only saw battle, you saw a different emotion in them. Endearment.

What kind of game is he playing? You thought. Last time I checked Fatui don’t have a caring bone in their body.

The harbinger let out a melodic chuckle. “Glady, just prepare yourself Girlie.”

You nearly dropped your daggers. You’ve got to be kidding.

“Damn you Kaeya.” You mutter under your breath.
