So don’t tell me Mofftiss couldn’t have Sherlock and John be in an openly romantic relationship because it wasn’t in the original canon.
For those of you who don’t know. “Poison” is Komaeda’s character’s song. It’s a bonus track for the Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls Progressive Album. It was also used for the Island Mode in Super Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. It can be found on YT with english subtitles. I believe “Poison” is Komaeda’s song directly dedicated to Hinata. It also explains Komaeda’s feelings about what has to be done. There are subtle hints which showing he knew everything about Hinata’s “true identity”. It’s extraordinary how analazying it can lead to DR3/SDR2.5 hints! I wrote an interpretation after watching SDR2.5. That means all hints from OVA are included. For those of you who are interested, rest of the post is under “read more”.

The film is an adaptation of the Mexican entry for best foreign-language film at the 84th Academy Awards in 2011. It centers on a woman named Laura Guerrero who, along with her friend, enters a Miss Baja beauty pageant. She witnesses during rehearsals a gang killing Drug Enforcement Administration agents and nightclub-goers, which turns her life upside down. She’s then kidnapped by the men and forced to work for them in the deadly drug war.
the first Dynasty of Kish, Ur’s first Dynasty rose to prominence as a major
port city. One of the greatest finds here was the Cemetery of Ur which
contained about 2,000 burials (human sacrifice) dating as late as the Sargonic
period of Akkad, sixteen of which were labeled “Royal Tombs”. The
funerary process was made up of ceremonial feasts and music which would last
for days followed by a funeral procession consisting of oxcarts, musicians,
singers, mourners, and guards or soldiers.
silver, food, weapons, cylinder seals, jewelry, cups and bowls would be left
with the deceased as well as both human and animal sacrifices; buried alongside the kings and queens or Ur, they would accompany the deceased and join them in
the afterlife. The architecture of the royal tombs comprised of a ramp leading
down a deep pit (labeled the ‘death pit’) toward a vaulted or domed stone chamber. The humans who were sacrificed were those who served and
attended the kings and queens while they were alive, they were buried within
the chamber with their rulers and also outside of it, in the pit.
burials in this cemetery were common inhumation (burying in a
grave or tomb); where the deceased were set on their side, legs flexed, with
arms over their chest and hands in front of their mouth. They would be placed
in a rectangular pit in either a coffin or wrapped in a reed mat.
Sumerian headgear necklaces.
royal tomb (PG1237), labeled the “Great Death Pit” held 6 men and 68
women, the majority of the latter wore headdresses of silver, gold and lapis as
well as having “shells with cosmetic pigment”. They were believed to
have willingly consumed some sort of sedative or deadly drug but at least two skeletons show perimortem (before time of death or close to it) fractures and
circular holes which match blunt force trauma with a heavy pointed blunt
object. Signs of sun damage and mercury sulfide (HgS) on a body (used to
slow down decomposition) suggests that the bodies were exposed to sunlight
during the above mentioned long festive ceremonies and funeral procession.
within the Royal Tombs of Ur two game boards were discovered, labeled the ‘Royal
Game of Ur’ (aka Game of Twenty Squares), these are some of the oldest
board games ever discovered.
afterlife the spirit (Sumerian gidim, Akk. eṭemmu) would
eat dust, thirst and live in darkness. It is believed that these objects which
were found in tombs and graves were offering for the gods and for
the deceased themselves. One reason for the former is that according to the
Sumerian myth, “The Death of Urnamma”, the deceased king Urnamma
was buried with objects so he could then offer them to the gatekeepers and the
many gods of the netherworld, including Ereshkigal (queen of
the Underworld) and her consort Nergal (god of war and pestilence).
As gifts he gave vessels, garments and weaponry as well as presenting them
with a banquet and in exchange he was given a dwelling place and given rule
over fallen soldiers and condemned criminals.
Ur-Namma had presented properly the offerings of the nether world, the … of the
underworld, the Anunnaki seated Ur-Namma on a great dais of
the nether world and set up a dwelling place for him in the nether
world. At the command of Ereckigala all the soldiers who had been killed
by weapons and all the men who had been found guilty were given into the king’s
hands.” – The Death of Ur-Namma
Lyre (reconstruction), 2600 BCE.
made to the deceased themselves were used as gifts for the gatekeepers in
exchange for safe passage into the afterlife and also so the spirits could eat
and drink but those who were killed by fire or remained unburied would have no
spirit and afterlife. Those who did make it to the afterlife needed offerings
of food and drink from living relatives. If offerings weren’t made then the
deceased could haunt and inflict sickness on the living.
to the Epic of Gilgamesh despite of one’s status while they lived all are equal
in the afterlife:
entered the house of dust and I saw the kings of the earth, their crowns put
away forever; rulers and princes, all those who once wore kingly crowns and
ruled the world in the days of old. They who had stood in the place of the gods
like Anu and Enlil, stood now like servants to fetch baked meats in the house
of dust, to carry cooked meat and cold water from the waterskin.”
of the sun and justice Utu/Shamash would descend into the netherworld every
night and would punish abusive spirits, gift offerings to forgotten spirits and
would judge the fates of the deceased with the help of the seven judges, the
the land of no return, the land of darkness, Ishtar, the daughter of Sin (moon
god) directed her thought. Directed her thought, Ishtar, the daughter
of Sin, to the house of shadows, the dwelling, of Irkalla (Netherworld),
to the house without exit for him who enters therein. To the road, whence there
is no turning, to the house without light for him who enters therein, the place
where dust is their nourishment, clay their food.’ they have no light, in
darkness they dwell. Clothed like birds, with wings as garments, over door and
bolt, dust has gathered.” – Ishtar’s Descent into the Underworld.
the story of ‘Inanna’s descent to the Underworld’ she
threatens the gatekeeper into opening the gates to the underworld for her.
gatekeeper, open thy gate, open thy gate so I may enter! If thou openest not
the gate so that I cannot enter, I will smash the door, i will shatter the
bolt, I will smash the doorpost, I will move the doors, I will raise up the
dead eating the living, so that the dead will outnumber the living.”
(the chief gatekeeper) rushed to Erishkigal (goddess of the underworld) to tell
her of her sister Ishtar’s arrival.
there, does this one wish to dwell with me? To eat clay as food, to drink dust
as wine? I weep for the men who have left their wives. I weep for the
wives torn from the embrace of their husbands; for the little ones cut off
before their time. Go, gatekeeper, open thy gate for her, deal with her
according to the ancient decree.” – Ishtar’s Descent into the
Standard of Ur, 2600-2400 BCE.
consists of the offering of gifts at each gate to Neti (chief gatekeeper) in
order to pass them,in the end she lays powerless and naked before her sister
Ereshkigal and the seven judges of the underworld known as the Anunnaki.
Anunna[ki], the judges of the underworld, surrounded her they
passed judgment against her. Then Ereshkigal fastened on Inanna the eye of
death, she spoke against her the word of wrath, she uttered against her the cry
of guilt. She struck her, Inanna was turned into a corpse, a piece of
rotting meat and was hung from a hook on the wall.” – Inanna
(Akk. Ishtar) Descent into the Underworld.
the gods cannot escape the underworld and so the Sumerian Inanna version
explains that she only escaped by means of trickery and the bartering of her
husband Dumuzi’s (who wasn’t mourning) life who in turn is saved by his sister
Ngeshtin-ana who replaces him in the underworld for half of the year.
Ngeshtin-ana was a goddess of fertility, absence correlates with the changing
of the seasons so this tale bares similarities with the Greek tale of Hades,
Persephone and her mother Demeter (goddess of harvest).

When Captain John Stilinski retires from the force, his next in line Chris Argent takes his place. Argent’s first order of business- assign Detective Stiles Stilinski a partner to assist him on his cases. Stiles has been tracking the distribution of a deadly new drug called Wolfsbane that is sweeping through the campus of the local high school. Stiles emphatically does not want a partner, especially not Derek Hale, a new addition to the BHPD fresh from the NYPD. However, as the two detectives get closer to solving the case, they also grow closer to each other, a move that has the potential to save the day or tear them apart.
• We know that Yin Fen is laced with vampire venom.
• Isabelle finds a new ally in an unlikely place.
• In the promo pictures Raphael has his eyes open when Isabelle initiates the kiss.
• There’s a shot of Isabelle looking shocked.
• Raphael then seems to comfort her.
Isabelle has gone to Raphael and the reason for her visit is definitely linked to the Yin Fen. Either she has come to seek answers or to obtain more of it.
Isabelle’s attempt to appeal to Raphael is through flirtation which has always succeeded in the pass (Downworlder demons, Meliorn, etc.) but it is meant with a firm negative.
Raphael then reveals his asexuality which will be the sexuality reveal of this season. It also links back to the spoiler we’ve had about Raphael displaying vulnerability this season. Raphael also sees the clear symptoms of the use of Yin Fen. When he reaches his hand out to stroke through her hair he could be comforting knowing just how deadly the drug is.
