So basically you're more a fan of Nissa because her ideology is closer to GW, while Garruk even before being cursed was closer to GB?
I was just thinking about this one! I suppose that’s accurate…but I have a little more to say about my theories on color ideology. Pre-curse Garruk would be green with a little black, while Nissa is a green with a little Golgari.
The Golgari don’t always follow their own doctrine, because of the struggles between the elves and the Teratogens. But at their core they follow the natural order of life and death. Death isn’t the end or beginning but a part of the cycle that is the entire living Undercity. So I think that Nissa’s ideology is probably closer to the Golgari concept of the cycle of life than the white concept of justice for the innocent or even the Selesyna concept of collaboration for the greater good.
In a fic I wrote a long time ago I included a Joraga post-mortem ritual where the body wasn’t buried, but it was returned to the forest to be eaten by the animals that once fed the elf and then decompose to nourish the trees that once gave them shelter. That’s something I think Nissa would want.
Garruk probably hasn’t given a lot of thought to being eaten by his wolves. Probably not a lot of good thoughts, anyway.
I still need to write things up properly, but in a nutshell:
- Emrys is regaining control of Clan Mask (who might end up getting renamed to celebrate the move to Nature) and the first order of business is to move away from Plague (goodbye puslings, I will miss your red eyes) because he’s had it up to here with the interclan shit (that I haven’t been posting, whoops) so he’s going to take the clan back to where he can protect it best.
- That said, Rheic is still there (but may not be for long), one of her grandchildren (Khanty) has been in charge of her affairs while she waits for The Heir to arrive.
- Khanty has been creating a sub-court comprised mostly of family members who aren’t “heir worthy” but she thinks show promise (and would stand up to Rheic). Rescued… would be an appropriate word…
- Tethys’ kid is going to set up some kind of market with her uncle Heist (that was unplanned, I forgot they were related), specifically to import/export Plague and Nature flora and fauna (and maybe other things, but mostly that).
- HELLO TREES, HERE I COME.
Death was fed up. He was tired of humans being stubborn, disrupting the natural order, and he wasn’t going to play their games anymore. This time, he was making the rules for a world that had gotten far out of hand.
There would be no more death. There would be no more rebirth. There would be no more interference from beings that were beneath him. He was putting an end to Earth for good and he was leaving.
However, Death didn’t account for Dean Winchester.
Dean was possibly the most obstinate soul in all of humanity and he wasn’t about to go down without a fight. Rallying every badass soul he could find, human or otherwise, Dean fought to save himself and the world.
But would it be enough? Would Dean and his pack be able to fight the three most basic terrors in the universe in the nightmarish forms they manifested? Would he be able to fix a world abandoned by its creator and Death?
Hi, I wondered if you could expand a bit on the anti-Speciesist element of Esoteric (and practised) NS, as shown by the superb animal protection laws in Germany, views of Hess, Himmler, Rosenberg, Hitler, and the post war works by luminaries such as Savitri Devi? There seems to be a strong current of putting man amongst the environment rather than above it, which is what makes NS for me the most fulfilling and revolutionary approach we have seen to life for centuries!
Today it is proven with scientific certainty that you can't interfere in the global eco-system at one point without dire and devastating consequences everywhere else. Everyone knows about the vast primeval forests in Amazónia and Siberia to be the “green lung" of the Earth, for instance. The increasing deforestation there affects us too, even though we live thousands of miles away. Take the example of the honey bee, which I keep posting about on my Gardening blog ( artamanen ). If the honey bee disappears, then our food supply will rapidly decline and mass-starvation among men is inevitable. An animal as tiny as the bee is of utmost importance to our survival as human species, and this is just one of many examples proving the intrinsic interdependence of every life form on this planet, humans included. To place the Human above Nature, this was the cardinal sin that put man at odds with every other life on Earth. As soon as there was no respect for other species anymore, man lost all respect for life too. If we want to survive, then we can not do this on our own. Man can only survive as part of the eco-system; as someone who contributes to the natural order instead of working against it.
Prior to the advent of National Socialism, you already had a popular movement “back to nature” in Germany and Austria too. People who moved to the countryside for resuming a rural and traditional lifestyle, like the Artamanen-Gesellschaft (Artaman League), for instance. They also wished to educate others and make them aware of the natural order and how man needs to fit in there, even if this means abandoning technology known to have adverse effects on the eco-system. This sentiment was subsequently incorporated in National Socialism and ultimately yielded the unparalleled legislation for protection of animals and environment in the Third Reich. National Socialism was, and remains to be, the only political movement that would rather decrease the growth of human population if this helps saving one more honey bee.
i haven’t posted a selfie by itself for a while!! but i got some cool new things in the mail the past 2 days–i’ve wanted more gabriel-themed things, but it turns out everything i’ve gotten matches my eyes really well!

As you look back on your life, you will often realize that many of the times you thought you were being rejected from something good, you were in fact being redirected to something better. You can’t control everything. Sometimes you just need to relax and have faith that things will work out. Let go a little and just let life happen. Because sometimes the truths you can’t change, end up changing you and helping you grow.
