German-Village

Wonder Woman Confession

Can we talk about the scene in Wonder Woman where Diana gets really angry after the Germans bomb the village and realizes that all men are corrupt and when she’s yelling at Steve and pushing him away instead of getting mad and treating her like an “emotional irrational woman” he tells her where she needs to go to defeat Ares. I love that scene so much.

Remember when I mentioned the bookstore I went to a couple of weeks ago? We went to the book loft in the German Village in Columbus. The book store is inside a really old house, there’s four levels, with so many different rooms and hallways. It’s such an intricate maze! Every room has it’s own theme. The horror section is one tiny cramped hallway with flickering fluorescent lights. There are even books in every cranny and corner. If you buy something there you can take your receipt to the cafe next door and get 20 percent off your meal. A lovely way to spend a cold day!

“Set in a humble german village, Little Goody Two Shoes tells the story of a dreamy girl whose fate will prove to send her into a turmoil of conflict and mysterious events.”



“Our main character, Elise, is an overwhelmingly ambitious girl whose dreams transcend her own simple day-to-day life at Kierferberg village. Unbeknownst to her, the vessel of Elise’s wishes would soon take form in the shape of a pair of bright red shoes, which would prove to become her one-way ticket to the grandiose life she’s always dreamed of.” 



“In order to assist her in her journey, Rozenmarine finds herself at Kierferberg village. A mysterious young traveller whose path seemed fated to cross with the girl in the bright red shoes - reserved, shy and soft hearted, a girl guided by a sinister spiritual instinct which many would consider to be dubious.”


These are our main two characters for our upcoming game, Little Goody Two Shoes. We’ve been working on the project since this September, but have only decided to announce them now that we’ve organized everything and got a solid hold on our plans for the game’s development!

Little Goody Two Shoes will be a paid game and we will be launching a crowdfunding campaign to support its development in the future! Until then we will be posting updates on its development on our blog and twitter as always!

Thank you so much for your continuous support until this point and we hope you will keep supporting Astral Shift on its journey! ( ^ 0 ^ )/♥

On August 29th 1930 36 people, the entire population of St Kilda were evacuated from the island.

On 10 May 1930 the people of St Kilda sent a collective letter to William Adamson, the Secretary of State for Scotland, requesting that they should be evacuated from their home. By the end of August that year the evacuation was completed and the process of resettlement on the Scottish mainland had begun. The abandonment of St Kilda is sometimes described as one of the few occasions when the ending of a community has taken place in a voluntary fashion. 

Generations had struggled to scrape a living from the unforgiving land far out in the Atlantic, but the 20th century had finally caught up with the harsh reality of existence there. It was a brutal process, as they carried their possessions and their furniture on their backs to the pier, the men had the unenviable task of drowning their working dogs in the sea, as they were not allowed to take them with them to the mainland, it was either that or leave them to starve, a very harsh ending to their life on the archipelago. Their cats were left to fend for themselves, but from what I can gather were eventually all killed off by the military over the next few years. 

St Kilda is not unique, other Scottish Islands were abandoned beforehand, most notably, Handa, off Sutherland which met its doom in the 1840s. Mingulay, in the Outer Hebrides that was deserted by 1912. The Islands of St Kilda though had become a curiosity, a sort of freak show for tourists to observe. 

St Kilda is actually the name given to the group of islands, though most people when quoting St Kilda, really mean the largest island where the actual village was, that is actually called Hirta, I myself when posting here have occasionally just title the photos St Kilda, rather than correcting myself, lazy, a wee bit I just find it easier than explaining the Island group each post. 

Hirta was occupied by humans for over two thousands of years by various residents and there were many traditions handed down the generations, traditions influenced by monks, viking sailors, medieval rulers and landowners.
What remains there now are the ruins of both their original houses, mainly blackhouse type houses, alongside slightly newer houses which had been built for them in the later years. The layout of the 19th-century village remains to this day, and over 1,400 stone-built Cleit for storing food and fuel are scattered all over the islands, and even on the sea stacs.

In 1726 a St Kildan visited Harris, caught smallpox there, and died from it. His clothes were returned to St Kilda in 1727, and brought the disease with them. Most of the islanders died, only 1 adult and 18 children survived the outbreak. However, 3 men and 8 boys escaped the disease as they had been left on Stac an Armin to collect gannets. The disease spread while they were there and nobody could go to fetch them. They were eventually rescued 9 months later. The owner of St Kilda had to send people from Harris to repopulate St Kilda.
As if the harsh conditions weren’t enough the Islanders had to cope with the effects of the First World War, the Royal Navy erected a signal station on Hirta, and daily communications with the mainland were established for the first time in St Kilda’s history. In a belated response, a German submarine arrived in Village Bay on the morning of 15 May 1918 and, after issuing a warning, started shelling the island. 

Seventy-two shells were fired, and the wireless station was destroyed. The manse, church & jetty storehouse were damaged, but no loss of life occurred. As a result of this attack, a 4-inch Mark III QF gun was erected on a promontory overlooking Village Bay, but it never saw military use. 

Even last year the island hit the headlines when it was announced the last of those that were evacuated,  Rachel Johnson nee Gillies, was just 8 years old when she left Hirta, aboard HMS Harebell with her parents Christina, Donald and her older sister Cathie. The Gillies family did not venture far - they settled in a cottage at Larachbeg, near Lochaline in the Highlands. She later married and settled down in Clydebank. Rachel was 93 when she passed, she only went back to St Kilda on two occasions - once for a documentary and once on invitation of the army to see the transformation the island had gone through. She is ringed in the picture with others from the island, a shy child by the looks of things, she seldom spoke about the life there and was said to be a private lady, I think you can pick that up from her photo.

Sieglinde Sullivan Facts!

Name: Sieglinde Sullivan
Age: 11
🕯 When first introduced, she was the Lord that controlled the Werewolves Forest the small German village of Wolfsschlucht.
🕯 The villiage name “Wolfsschlucht” in German roughly translates to “Valley of Wolves”.
🕯 Upon learning that her life was a lie and her “magic” was merely a way of unlocking the secrets to a deadly poison she abandoned the village and moved to London, where she now serves under Queen Victoria.
🕯 Her feet were bound, which impaired her movement and rendered her inable to walk. This may have been to immobilize her should she discover the truth behind her work.
🕯 Due to the language barrier (Until Sebastian begins teaching her English), there are frequent misunderstandings between her and Ciel. These misunderstandings typically are seen sexually on her side of things, which Sebastian finds amusing and tends not to correct.
🕯 Due to her lack of knowledge of the outside and men in particular, her understanding of men comes from books. This lead her to believe that men are carnal beasts driven only by lust.
🕯 Once outside the village she becomes an engineer of sorts, constantly at work and thirsting for understanding.
🕯 Sieglinde built a robotic device that allows her to walk which is called “Arachne Patousa” and is modeled after spider legs.
🕯 Sebastian served as her butler for a short time while Ciel was bedridden.
🕯 She has seen both Ciel and Sebastian’s contract seals and believes them to be devil worshipers.
🕯 She is exceptionally close to her servant, Wolfram Gelzer.
🕯 Her name means “Gentle Victory”.
🕯 She is the one to discover the blood types of the Lords of Sphere Music Hall and the connection between them.
🕯 Sieglinde likewise deduces that the gathering of blood on such a scale is likely to be for experimenting with blood transfusion.
🕯 She designed the Funtom 5’s advanced equipment.


“Every evening the birds sing around the village in the same way, in the stillness of the setting sun, but it feels like something new happening every time, as though world were not yet seven years old. In the country, he thought, the gods still come to people. A man matters, his experiences matter, but in the city, where experiences come by the thousands, we can no longer relate them to ourselves; and this is of course the beginning of life’s notorious turning into abstraction.”

The Man without Qualities by Robert Musil

Fandom: Disney ; BatB (2017)
Warnings: a bit of german, but I’ve translated it

A/N: well, well, what a fantastic request, my dear! I’m also really glad you decided on a german village, otherwise I would’ve had to rely on google translator and I don’t trust that little bitch lol. hope you like it <33

                                                           *****

Gaston had spent his entire life living in France. It was home, after all and he had never any intention to leave.

But when he survived the fall and realized how the villagers looked down at him, he felt it was best to do, what he never thought he would do.

He had packed his essentials and was gone a few days later, making his way East, until he was standing on German ground.

New country. Maybe that would give him the fresh start he so desperately needed.

He soon found himself a nice little village, quite like the one he lived in before and asked around for hunting jobs and houses.

An elderly man told him that no one hunted in these woods, because of the evil that lived within.
