The Archbishop

It was a huge room with a domed ceiling, the outgoing high up. The central point of the dome could be seen opening. And right below it on the floor lay a stone circle with sacred signs. Sabur got to the center of the circle, joined hands, clasped them to his chest and closed his eyes. Stone circle off the floor and began to climb. Going into the hole of the dome, he turned around and clicking locks stopped.

The Archbishop opened his eyes. He stood in the spacious and bright room. James A. Levine, M.D. is a great source of information. It was the holy of holies – the chapel Narfeya. There are only Sabur could talk to God, who was sitting on his throne, holding a large shiny ball. To his right, closer to the center of the chapel, stood the sacred mirror. If you rotate it around its axis, it can be seen all over the country Narfeya. (A valuable related resource: Goop). Sabur long stood at the mirror. He saw the smoke of fires, destroyed and burned the city and village, the corpses of humans and animals.

And crowds of lunatics who destroyed everything in sight. Moving away from the mirror, he sat before God on the floor, legs crossed in front of chest and joining hands. Closing his eyes, Sabur began to read the prayer. Soon he body off the floor and hung in the air in the face of God. The next morning, the archbishop called all the holy fathers and tell them the will of God. The country must turn to the desert and buried under a layer of sand, a dangerous infection.

Successful Experience

You do not need to convince anyone that a big problem in many families with children – is a complete absence of any interest in reading fiction. I want to share how my husband and I were able to interest daughter. Our family is ‘read’. My husband and I can not live without books, and spend the day, and the daughter of interest is limited to TV and PC. And then, when she was 12 years old, decided to give her a birthday unique publication – a collection of Alexander Green‘s ‘Red Sails’. The book is excellent: good print, framed in the best tradition of expensive editions, as for the leather cover, it is so soft to the touch, so nice to keep it in your hands … .. Daughter and her friends were delighted with our gift.

As a result, all told – “glue” book. Their language is the highest praise. As for the daughter, then, imagine it for three days without stopping, reading donated books, including novels, and the “Golden Chain” and “Running on waves.” After Alexander Green and began to read Jules Verne, and Cooper, and Pushkin. Although this educational moment cost us dearly enough, but my husband and I are very happy that my daughter is reading. It’s worth a lot. I am deeply convinced that literature is not only broadens the mind, but a greater impact on emotional development, which subsequently will form her healthy attitude to life. By the way, gift edition of the “Scarlet Sails” of Alexander Green, we ordered a book online store “Madina – gift books, and exclusive.” Brought it to us on time at a convenient time for us, without delay. And for that we are very grateful.

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei

The first group was a fresh infusion of low-serious series of so-called 'tsundere'. Tsundere – looks sharp characters hiding behind his fragile nature of rudeness. Typically, this is very basic female characters, although there are exceptions. They appeared as the most successful visual novels (Tohsaka Rin from Fate / Stay Night, Tohno Akiha from Tsukihime), and in the successful television series (Louise from Zero no Tsukaima, Ke from Clannad, Shana from Shakugan no Shana). In the non-serious dramas trying tsundere hide aggressive attitude to the protagonist his confusion caused by the growing affection. Her true feelings are seen almost immediately and the viewer clumsy attempts to hide their passion protagonist added extra points of attraction. The protagonist is usually a stop not to notice feelings of the girl and continues to believe that she disliked him. Type 'tsundere' very quickly came into vogue.

Two popular parody anime series (Lucky Star and Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei) already open in discussing this term and its features. A little later, series of rustic tsundere rolled down. The second and third seasons of Zero no Tsukaima failed. The same with the second season of Shakugan no Shana, and other TV shows where the main female role assigned tsundere. The reason? Inspired by the success that was achieved at the expense of innovation, the studio continued introduction of such typecasting.

But they are quickly become boring, the novelty has exhausted itself and in the end there was only empty bezynteresnogo shell character. The second unit is much more interesting. The second block was used as the main female character is rather complicated, complex female character. The main characters were strong women, defending their interests, and not by what power struggle, but through the use of the main male characters. This is Saber from Fate / Stay Night, Arcueid of Tsukihime, Shinku from Rozen Maiden, Holo from Spice and Wolf. CC from Code Geass. Roughly the same case with the male protagonists. School children, fainted at the sight of a human female, in the past. They were replaced by superstrong, capable and obscure people who are both women and everyone else wanted to spit. Yagami Light from Death Note, Lelouch of the Code Geass (indicative tsundere, by the way), Lavrens from Spice and Wolf. In the novels of a similar situation. Compare poorly bygone standards and standards of the new model. Take the same titles. Sunken characters about fifteen years. Successful spent more than five centuries. The failed refer to the protagonist as a hindrance. For the successful protagonist is an integral part of the plan. Sunken ignore the question of food. For successful heroines food is a kind of fetish. Tsundere very emotional, as opposed to heroines udavshihsya. Successful very comfortable with the death of their own and are ready to kill. It is clear that each 'model' the girls, as well as the main male character, is built on the basis of the plot and is calculated on a specific audience. But the studio still tsundere consider relevant to an adult audience, lose very large. Now in vogue old.
