❤NORWAY❤

I haven’t really said much about what happened here in Norway, that don’t mean I don’t care, it is just that I feel more like that no matter what I say it won’t change anything. All the groups on facebook are nice, but I sort of feel like a lot of them are the same and some of them meaningless. It is easy to say that you are going to attend on facebook, but what is more important is to go out and join others!

The crowds that have gathered around in Norway are a thousand times more beautiful than anything else that I have seen on the news when it comes to Norwegian history. I have never believed in being able to stop hate with more hate, and the crowds of people comming together in love has renewed my view of the human race! It might have been all because of a act of meaningless cruelness, but what is important now is to decide how we will deal with this as Norwegians! Hate makes hate, and if we start hating more things like this will happen!

“Even in their deepest sorrow the Norwegians don’t get hysterical. They resist the hate. It is amazing to see how politicians and the whole country reacts. They are sad to the deepest thread of their souls. They cry in dignity. But nobody swears to take revenge. Instead they want even more humanity and democracy. That is one of the most remarkable strengths of that little country.”

– From a German newspaper

Of course this is not true for everyone, we see people that attack police-cars to try and hurt this man back as he hurt Norway. But it is understandable, as people wants to grieve and there is nothing easier than to take it out on the one we all probably hate now..  But the most scary is that we also see people that makes facebook groups for good, then change them over to sites to support the terror attacks. I don’t know if it is meant as a joke, or if he has more supportes out there, but it is sickening anyway!

Another thing that is really sad, is what I saw when the news of the bomb just came out on the news. The second it happened, everyone right away started blaming everything outside of Norway. I understand that it was the most natural thing to think, but the people who went out and said” What did we say?!” then, also hurt a little.

But Norway has never claimed to be a perfect land! It is a land where we live high on oil money. We send off money to help everyone that needs it, but we won’t join EU because we have to give away more. We have bad jokes no other country would understand! We have re-runs off McGuyver, friends and M*A*S*H that will probably be on in a hundred years from now! We have a royal family that might seem to just be there to look good, but that we all love like they were a part of our own family.

We are Norwegians! We will rise over the hate and spread more love! Don’t give the evil more attention! Overlook him and all he stands for! He wants to be a martyr! If we continue the hate and someone does kill him, how will he be able to really spend time to see that he failed?! Overlook him, and don’t do any of the things he said we would do! Don’t give him the satisfaction!

We are Norway! So let us keep showing the world just how dignified our little giant land really is!

I want to give my love to all those who lost someone, and also to those who got hurt in body and in mind on the 22nd. The stories of bravery and courage will never be forgotten!

Umineko no Naku Koro ni


On the remote Island Rokkenjima, owned by the old and dying man, Kinzo Ushiromiya,  the annual family conferance is about to take place. One of the young cousins in the family Battler, is back for the first time in six years, and he slowly understands that a lot has changed there.

Battler’s father and his siblings quarells over the right to take over after their father, Kinzo dies, and there is also a new portrait in the main house, of a beautiful foreign woman named Beatrice, and under her picture, there is a riddle set up by Kinzo, and it is said that the one who solves it will become the new head of the family, and inherit the gold that Kinzo claims to have once gotten from the golden witch Beatrice.

“My beloved hometown, the sweetfish river running through it.
You who seek the Golden Land, follow its path downstream and seek the key.

If you follow the river downstream, you will find a village.
In the village, look for the shore the two will tell you of.
There sleeps the key to the Golden Land.

He who lays hand upon the key shall travel under the rules below.

At the first twilight, you shall lift up as sacrifice the six chosen by the key.
At the second twilight, the surviving shall tear apart the two who are close.
At the third twilight, the surviving shall praise my honorable name on high.
At the fourth twilight, gouge the head and kill.
At the fifth twilight, gouge the chest and kill.
At the sixth twilight, gouge the stomach and kill.
At the seventh twilight, gouge the knee and kill.
At the eighth twilight, gouge the leg and kill.
At the ninth twilight, the Witch shall be revived and none shall be left alive.
At the tenth twilight, the journey shall end and you should reach the village of gold.

The Witch will praise the wise, and should bestow four treasures.
One shall be, all the gold from the Golden Land.
One shall be, the resurrection of the souls of all the dead.
One shall be, even the resurrection of the lost love.
One shall be, to put the Witch to sleep for all time.

Sleep peacefully, my most beloved witch, Beatrice.

But as a terrible storm closes in, Kinzo yells out his challenge for the island’s ghost witch Beatrice whom he claims was once his true love, and the battle between illusions and reality begins.

The people on the island is killed one after another according to the riddle, and if they can’t figure out who the true culprit can be by the last twillight, the golde witch Beatrice will revive, and take the survivors to the Golden land.

———————————————————-

What I love about Umineko is that it mixes two of my favorite genres, one is crime and the other is fantasy, but the big goal of this game is to be skeptic to the fantasy part, even as magic and witches seems so real, there is always ways of denying it and still claim that the killer or killers are human.

If you have any knowledge of Higurashi you know how this will go. As the two days in the secluded storm ends, none are left alive, and no one never finds out just what happened in the two days on Rokkenjima. But after entering the Golden Land, Battler still does not want to believe the witch Beatrice exists, and she challenges him to a game to either prove or dissprove magic, and if Battler can deny witches completely, Beatrice will die.

The chess board is set up for new games, and Beatrice sets up the murders and stories of alternative ways the two days played out, and Battler has to figure out who the killer is, before he has to admit that only a witch could have done it.

I have just come to the sixt game, and I just have to say that the ending of the fifth one was AWSOME!!!! Beside the visual novel games for this, there is also motion graphics that was sold at comiket, and I have watched all of them for a while now, and I saw the one with the story for the fifth game and it looked awsome! But it is twice as awsome when you read and listen to the visual novel! The music is awsome, the pictures are nice to look at, and the mood is set right from the start! It is true that the art for the characters aren’t that good, but you will get used to it right away and not really care about it. You can of course check out the anime or manga, I haven’t read much of the manga, but the anime was really bad X(. It cut out a lot, and if you just look at the anime I think you might lose a lot of the story and character development. (GOAT-KUN!!!)

I have a lot of Umineko videos in my youtube, and I’ll post some of them here! For me Umineko is a summer thing, since I started with it two summers ago, and I can also remember that I started to bond with one of the persons that later became a really good friend of mine because we both started to talk about Umineko and Higurashi=) Good and treasured memories thanks to blood and mutilations=) And it was thanks to the anime ending that I discovered Sound Horizon, since Jimang sings the ending song ^-^


This is the introes of the visual novels, and under here is the motion graphics, be warned that the motion graphics does contain spoilers! And just for the record, since the fifth motion graphic is mostly just a recap, the things that happens in the sixth motion graphic is acctually the story for the fifth visual novel! (I didn’t know this and was a little confused) and it does mean that none of these probably gives away what happens in the last episode.

Love my summer!

Firstly, I have gotten a cryptic message from School that said that they heard from Hokkaido that our entering letters will come in the end of July, so I take that as a: You have been accepted news!! I’m going to Japan for a year!! WOHO!!! But my mom is not as happy… I hope she will feel better before I leave…

And I am done with one of my cross stitches!! I am really proud of it =) And I got a birthday present from my mom too, she bought me a box to keep cross stitch floss in! And It even had 40 flosses in it from before! It had a picture frame on the top, so I put this into it =) Now it looks really nice=)

Other than that, since I have some flosses now and a small piece of Aida, I will make my own cross stitch pattern on a wonderful program called “Pattern maker for cross stitches”, it makes patterns out of simple pictures, and when you export it, it will have codes and all so you know what colors you need. I have made two from D.Gray-Man now, I will make the smallest one now since I have big enough Aida fabric and since it is black and white I don’t need so many colors.

You have to watch it in full to see all the things in this, and here is the shart that shows what number of DMC you have to use for it.

If this is popular I might post the other one I want to do with just Allen and Tim ^-^. But it has a lot more colors and it is really big, so I have to wait a little with it, since I don’t have enough money for the fabric and the floss T.T.
