Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind by Pino44io
The story unfolds one thousand years after the Seven Days of Fire, the event that brought about the ultimate destruction of industrial society, and the few remaining human tribes struggle to survive, clinging to the slowly shrinking areas that are still suitable to live in.
“Kaze no Tani no Naushika” was theatrically released before Studio

Photographs and paintings of stars occupy that category of things you know are so, and yet it’s not quite possible to believe. One example is radio or television “signals” traveling in “waves” through the air, only to be reassembled for your listening or viewing pleasure in your living room radio or TV. Looking at clusters of stars lighting up the night sky like massive storm clouds, it’s impossible to think of those stars, those points of light, as separate massive burning suns, even though I know it’s so. Sometimes the most powerful magic requires no deception at all. The natural universe is more mystifying in its sheer

Coming across a deserted house, whether hidden by the distance of a rolling countryside or by the shadows of adjoining city ghetto dwellings, is like stumbling across an unnoticed, unburied corpse. It is obviously dead now, but once it was full of lives. Coming across a haunted house is different. Deserted or still occupied, it is a place where lives, unsatisfied, have refused to move on into a full death. The houses reflect their tenants. They are living dead structures, refusing to return to dust.
“What terrified me will terrify others; and I need only describe the spectre which had haunted my midnight pillow”

Coffee is a very personal part of a person’s life. Having a “way you take your coffee” is as much an indication of the crossing over into adulthood as a first broken heart. Even when psychically rudderless and adrift, awaking to morning in one of those blank margins of one’s life, there is always the next start, a new start—in that first cup of coffee. Coffee is the one nonjudgemental friend who never betrays.
“Coffee makes us severe and grave and philosophical.”

The island of Berk once had a troublesome problem with looting airborne raiders, but thanks to Hiccup and his dragon/best friend, Toothless, a peaceful coexistence reigns in the Viking land. It wasn’t an easy undertaking to get to this point, but audiences all over have sure enjoyed the journey of these action packed films.

In The Shadow of Dragons
"Is the time of daring deeds forgotten, and spent the fire of men? The bravery sheathed, the proud hearts withered? In the scorched trails of our foes’ fury, even wizards’ spells knelt and warriors’ will bent; yet Dawn’s struggle beneath the burning clouds, within the shadow of dragons, has won her the eastern sky. Shall battle drums thunder once more, and mithril–clad soldiers brave again the terrors of the skies?"

New Year’s Eve
So what did you “actually get done” in the past year? How closer are you to a grand goal in life? An assessment is made and then the inevitable Step 2 of the yearly process is engaged, which is often a word for word repeat of last year’s Step 2:
The New Year’s Resolution
There seem to be two main strategies that emerge at this point of facing the New Year, a “brand new morning.” The lone wolf quietly acknowledges goals not yet reached, and is even more secretive in the “new plan.” “I’ll show them,” becomes the new privat

The Russian king tapped through the streets of a small town at the crack of dawn. It is warm with the breath of spring giving way to summer. However there's a chill in the morning air... and the threat of snow about to fall from the sky. He stood at the edge of the light of a lamp post, his violet eyes glittering with glee. He looked up at the sky, silently calling on General Winter, lost to the world around him....

Dark King's Bio/Headcanons((If you find any mistakes or have a question about clarification on any of the points, please let me know~!))Dark King's Bio/Headcanons in Personal More Like This
The Dark King rules the Eastern part of Russia and makes his home in a secluded region in Siberia.
He relies on his Western half to make all the decisions, since their government is located in Moscow.
He has more control over General Winter than West Russia does.
Psychologically, East Russia is the darker personification of West Russia, however East Russia is not a 2P!Hetalia personification; see him as a Dark!Russia.
East and West Russia are two sides of the same person; West Russia is sweet and cheerful with a hint of a dark side, while East would be the opposite. This meaning (and keep this in mind when RPing) East Russia, for all his evil and darkness in his heart, has the potential to be good.
East Russia is cursed and was born of

We started in San Francisco, which is an amazing place. The weather is something which you really wouldn't expect for California: very, very cold and foggy in the morning and evening and really hot in the day. We stayed there for four nights, during which time we went by boat round the bay, took a visit to Alcatraz island, explored Chinatown (I thought of DojangDoll while we were wandering round as all the signs were in Chinese!), went on the tram which is

2. What's your greatest memory?
3. Do you have a favourite song?
4. Can you do any accents? If so which?
5. What are you most likely to do when you get home from school?
6. If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you go?
7. What religion are you?
8. Any pet peeves?
9. How do you see yourself?
10. Would you ever dye your hair? If so what colour?
