“Ein Sehnen ließ mich scheiden vom immergrünen Wald. Vom Fluss gesäumt von Weiden und von starkem Buchenhalt. Wo einst ich viele Male vernahm der Stille Klang. Doch nun auf ferner Straße bleibt mir noch dieser Gesang.”x
(literal, ugly, and very unpoetic translation):
A yearning made me part from the evergreen forest. From the river lined with willows and from the strong hold of beeches. Where once many times I listened to the sound of stillness. But now on foreign road only this song is left to me.

“I try to balance my life with peace and quiet because the other side of it is really rowdy, you know, when you get into the record business and all that kind of stuff. So I think I’ve been a very extreme person. I’m a Pisces, y'see. One half’s going where the other half’s just been, and it’s been very extreme, you know, extremely up or extremely down, extremely spiritual or extremely drugged. And now, with a bit of maturity, I brought the two extremes closer to the middle. I don’t go too far out, I don’t get too far up or too far down, and it’s - it feels good.” - George Harrison in an interview with Joe Smith, 1988
“George is a very extreme character. He always goes to the extreme. If it’s taking coke, you know, sniffing coke, or if it is being open to meditation.” - Klaus Voormann, Living in the Material World
“George’s zodiac sign was Pisces, and he even wrote a song with the title ‘Pisces Fish’ about it, in which he says: ‘One half’s going where the other half’s just been.’ He was a man of extremes: everything he did, he did intensely. When he was naughty, he was very naughty, and when he was well-behaved, he was very well-behaved.” - Olivia Harrison, Süddeutsche Zeitung, 25 November 2011
“I think for George, he talked about the inner journey and that was very important to him, although he was yin-yang. He could hang with the best of them. [laughs] He was a scoundrel yogi. That’s what I loved about him, because he was honest. He was right up front about it. ‘I’m bad? O.K., I’m bad.’” - Olivia Harrison, The New York Times, 23 September 2011
I really need to figure out how to put subtitles on videos…
But until then, another picture-form Reve Unitia PV translation, this time of the Ruca Favorability PV! Click here to watch the original and hear some adorable voice acting and interactions between my two favorite cry-baby protagonists.
The last thing she remembered was the flashing green light from the talisman and the force that pushed her back when she shattered it. She must have blacked out upon making contact with part of the bridge that had been stuck in an upright position. Yes, that must be it.
But, when she opened her eyes with a groan escaping her lips and her hand going to her head, she discovered something very strange. She was no longer on a bridge in the middle of a river in Paris. No, there were buildings that she had never seen before, technologies that seemed far more advanced then what she was use to.
She slowly stood up, making her way off the bit of bridge that seemed to come with her to… well, wherever she was. She looked down to herself, seeing the once beautiful ballgown in complete disrepair. She looked like she had just been through a battle, for sure.
The only thing she knew for sure was that she had no idea where she was, and the odds were that either Rasputin or the Bolsheviks were behind this. “Димитрий? Димитрий, ты где?” she called out before leaning on a tall thin piece of metal. Only then did she realize there was a sign before it… in English. From her limited knowledge of English, she knew it was Main Street… but… the main street of where?
aside from all the drama & f*ckery that happens around here, can I just take a minute to say how incredible this hobby is? like, all of us are coming together to create characters & towns & entire universes for us to make our own. that’s incredible. the fact that we can create an environment where someone can come in & create their own world with their own people & rules & history, & then they get to share it with other writers & let them enter the world & take control of a character inside it? that’s so amazing.
it might not seem like much at the time, when you’re doing gif chats or plotting with friends or doing para replies.. but when you create a new character, you create a new human. you created a little human bean with a life & a personality & a history & hobbies & flaws & strengths & weaknesses. you did all that. whether it was all by yourself or with the help of other admins or writers– you did that. isn’t that so cool? i think that’s so cool.
we’re creating entirely new worlds, guys. whether it’s in a group RP, indie, 1x1, or even if you’re just writing by yourself.. you made a new world & everything you do can help shape it into whatever you want it to be.. idk I just think that’s really incredible.
I’m really proud of y'all for creating your own little human beans & helping them navigate through whatever comes their way, in this new world you’ve created for them to exist in. they couldn’t do it without you.
I got my new sexy New World Translation scriptures yesterday. Man it’s so nice looking haha. And I just took a smell of it (I like the smell of new books…) and it already smells of cake. Haha, well done Jam.
Red Tweets - GoRA's Nostalgic New Year's Eve along with a message to all the fans
Red, from GoRA, was the one to tweet today.
In the tweets:
Red wishes a happy New Year to everyone. Red reminds that the K Movie will air on 12th July this year (2014). The theme song of K Project sang by Angela has been played in the countdown live at the end of the year! (This sends such a sweet message. GoRA really is proud of their work and listens to the K Project theme song when the new year came. *-*)
Even Red was there with everyone to jump together to the new year. The song “KINGS” started to play and then at midnight, the lyrics BIG BANG was in perfect timing. (OMG. This is so beautiful. We could have done it, K Project fandom!)
Angela will work along with GoRA this year. “I’ll also do my best this year!”
Not only the K Movie will be released this year, but also the project “Gakuen K”, “K Lost Small World” and other varied projects. Please look forward to them!

“Hold still,” Zakit glanced up from the lens of the x-ray device, his expression exasperated.
Zephyr stood next to him with his arm upon the stainless steel table, winds swirling ceaselessly around the device that was currently positioned above his wrist. Through clenched teeth he replied, “When you said you wanted help with some kind of research, I didn’t think that meant you wanted me as the test subject. Can’t you try out your new toys on yourself?”
Zak rolled his eyes. They were currently in Spiro’s lab, a place Zak spent most of his time since arriving, where he was currently trying to analyze his twin’s skeletal structure. None of the anatomy books that Spiro possessed covered something exactly like them, so he’d taken it upon himself to diagram it.
Picking up his pencil again, he carefully added a few adjustments to the image he’d managed to sketch thus far, replying to Zeph as he did so, “I can’t work the device, sketch out a diagram, and use it on myself at the same time. It’s not like it’s hurting you.”
“It’s making my skin tingle.”
“You’ll live. I promise.” Zakit tapped a nearby screen, magnifying the image of Zeph’s wrist bones, ignoring his brother muttering something along the lines of ‘since when did you become psychic?’
“Amazing…” Zak whispered, rotating the lens so that it brought up a more magnified image. There was so much tech in this new world that had only just begun to dip his hands into. It felt nice. To discover, to accomplish, all of his own accord.
“I wonder…” He glanced back at his twin, whose expression - and aura -clearly stated he did not share in his brother’s enthusiasm. Maneuvering the device, Zak began to re-position his twin, “Let’s see what the inside of our torso looks like!”
