Here’s a cool story about Seto, Ryou and topdecking cards, with references to the virtual world and Pyramid of Light too ^^ I like how they test it with other decks, as well as what characters the cards represent! (Kaiba’s Blue-Eyes refuses to topdeck for anyone but him, and anyone but Mokuba will only get them at the bottom.)
Hi! I don’t share so much thing about me or my country but, I’d want to share some traditions that are from my country, I know someone woldn’t care, but who knows, probably you like it ;)
The Island of Flores lavishly prepares itself with the
most cheerful and festive tradition which begins the January 6th with the State Fair, activity which has its origin that dates 100 years back in
honor of the Black Christ of Petén. It manifests in various activities such as
the election of the Beauty Queen Sac
Nicté, the Chatona and El Caballito Traditional
Dance and the fair which begins from the entrance of the Island of Flores in
It’s a singular, special and very cheerful event, as the
neighbors of the Island of Flores maintain the traditions. The festivities
begin with a cheerful alborada at the
crack of dawn (4 in the morning), later, approximately each 4 to 6 hours the traditional Chatona and Caballito Dances fill the streets of the
colorful Island of Flores. This tradition reunites all kinds of people, from
the little ones to elderly people.
The Fair ends on a
weekend after January 15th
A fun fact about this dances, the people who lives in the Island, in the day they do like 4 or 6 dances with La Chatona and El Caballito, so it’s celebration all day here, until the day that fair ends.
I’ll give you some information about the traditional dances for that festivities:
La Chatona Dance
Her first appearance was with the arrival of a woman from
Chiapas Mexico who was hired as a cook on a bubblegum camp. According from memories
of the townspeople, the woman was tall and very very beautiful; she had a braid
decorated with a gold hairclip. Her name was Petrona and was most popular by
her ability to dance.
At the end of a season, after many years of working as
a cook on the camp and cheerful presence at the local fair, she didn’t return
with the people of the camp. The men sadly
remember her as Aunt Tona. The local
legend tells that she died of a venomous snake bite (the yellow beard).
This is how Aunt
Tona was introduced itself into the popular mythology as “La Chatona”.
The presence of La Chatona it’s a tradition in many
towns of Petén, which during their local festivities (fairs), they dance to it
which consist of a person being introduces underneath the giante doll to later
dance as if it were her; representing in this way, the Aunt Tona during the time of local fairs.
El Caballito Dance
The dance is known by the same name, it is interpreted in
the celebrations of the fairs of said department. El Caballito, with the
character that mounts it, goes out to dance with La Chatona and the Mascarudos,
the latter are disguised as Spanish conquerors. El Caballito, identified the
morcillo horse because he was sick, which Hernán Cortés left to the Itza people
to take care of him. According to Spanish chroniclers, this horse died because
he didn’t receive adequate food.
In order to pacify through Christianization this indomitable and brave people, the Franciscan friars
Órbita and Fuensalida, arrived on the island of Noj Petén (today Flores) in
1918, when the ruler was King Can Ek. In a temple, they found a Stone Horse or
Tzimín Chac (Horse of Thunder or Lightning), which was idolized for the Itza
people; the friars destroyed it.
The stories of the Spanish people, relate that the Itza
confused the Horse with the rider, which is similar to the allusion of the
death of Tecún Umán. This is false, the Itzaes worshiped the horse, because
they considered it valuable, it seemed a natural means of transport of low
cost, which was maintained with grass, grass and water.
Well I hope you can enjoy this information and video about one of many traditions that can enjoy in Guatemala ;-)
Yami Yugi’s role in Pyramid of Light sometimes reminds me of those fanfics where a character gets beaten up for a majority of it XD He does his usual awesome comebacks and helps save the day but in between he gets blinded by his own cards, has his life energy sucked out, gets stabbed through the back in the heart, gets mocked by Kaiba and Anubis, and gets blasted so hard he’s knocked unconscious for several minutes and can barely stand when he does get up.
En este ask me pidieron una historia entre estos dos luego de leer la que escribí de Escorpio y Cáncer. No tenía pensado seguir escribiendo historias para los horóscopos, pero supongo que una más no me va a matar.
De como Sagitario y Leo siguen siendo pareja a pesar de lo mamón que es él. O algo así.
Era la primera hora de clases, diez minutos antes de que sonara la primera campana del día y Sagitario jugaba piedra papel o tijeras junto con Piscis y Tauro para ver a quién le tocaba conseguir la tarea de Filosofía que casualmente ninguna de las tres había hecho. Luego de muchas rondas porque ‘dos de tres’, ‘tres de cinco’ y así hasta casi el infinito.
Como era de esperarse, Sagitario perdió. Tauro y Piscis la conocían lo suficiente como para saber que tenía una tendencia por poner piedra en el 90% de las rondas. Así que, bueno, a Sagitario le tocaba todo el trabajo sucio del día.
Aunque Sagitario era una chica muy sociable, sabía que no podía pedirle la tarea a cualquier compañero con el que casi no hablara, que al menos tenía conciencia, así que se fue por lo que pensó que podría ser seguro: su novio Leo. Es decir, su novia estaría en problemas si él no le pasaba la tarea, pues, aunque estuvieran en clases distintas, la profesora de Filosofía de ambos era la misma. No iba a negarse ¿o sí?
“For no woman is really an insider in the institutions fathered by masculine consciousness. When we allow ourselves to believe we are, we lose touch with parts of ourselves defined as unacceptable by that consciousness; with the vital toughness and visionary strength of the angry grandmothers, the shamanesses, the fierce market women of the Ibo Women’s War, the marriage-resting women of silk workers of prerevolutionary China, the millions of widows, midwives, and women healers tortured and burned as witches for three centuries in Europe, the Beguines of the twelfth century, who formed independent women’s orders outside the domination of the Church, the women of the Paris Commune who marched on Versailles, the uneducated housewives of the Women’s Cooperative Guild in England who memorized poetry over the washtub and organized against their oppression as mothers, the women thinkers discredited as "strident,” “shrill,” “crazy,” or “deviant” whose courage to be heretical, to speak their truths, we so badly need to draw upon in our own lives. I believe that every woman’s soul is haunted by the spirits of earlier women who fought for their unmet needs and those of their children and their tribes and their peoples, who refused to accept the prescriptions of a male church and state, who took risks and resisted, as women today – like Inez Garcia, Yvonne Wanrow, Joan Little, Cassandra Peten – are fighting their rapists and batterers. Those spirits dwell in us, trying to speak to us. But we can choose to be deaf; and tokenism, the myth of the “special” woman, the unmothered Athena sprung from her father’s brow, can deafen us to their voices.“
From Adrienne Rich’s 1979 Commencement address, "What Does a Woman Need to Know?” at Smith College
