Joan of Arc’s Standard

“Did you not have on the banner you carried a representation of the world, painted with two angels, etc.?”

“Yes; and I had no other.”

“What did this signify, to paint God holding the world, and these angels?”

“Saint Catherine and Saint Margaret told me that I was to take my banner and to carry it boldly, and to have painted on it the King of Heaven. I told my King, much against my will: that is all I can tell of the signification of this painting.”

Every man gives his life for what he believes. Every woman gives her life for what she believes. Sometimes people believe in little or nothing, and so they give their lives to little or nothing. One life is all we have, and we live it as we believe in living it…and then it’s gone.

But to surrender who you are and to live without belief is more terrible than dying – even more terrible than dying young.

—  St. Joan of Arc

St. Jeanne D'arc Save France 

All honor and all glory be

To Thee, the Eternal King of kings!

For Thou hast given the victory

To me, a frail and feeble thing.

And thou, dear Mother, pure as snow,

Most lovely star, sublimely bright!

Oh, thou hast been my light below,

Protecting me in danger’s night.

Thou, Queen, whose glories ne'er shall fail,

When shall mine eyes thy splendors see?

When shall I rest beneath thy veil,

Never again to part from thee?

Hail, Mary! Holy Mother, hail!

My exiled spirit fain would fly

To heavenly joys that have no end;

Naught here its needs can satisfy,

It craves for God, its perfect Friend.

But, ere that sweet reward begin,

I long to combat for Him here,

For Him unnumbered souls to win,

And find Him dearer and more dear.

My exile here will pass away,

As the day passes and is gone;

Then, up the radiant, sunlit way,

My happy soul shall hasten on,

To see my God in endless day.

Joan of Arc: Calling Out Bullshit Since 1431
  • Examiner: "In what likeness did Saint Michael appear to you?"
  • Joan of Arc: "I did not see a crown: I know nothing of his dress."
  • Examiner: "Was he naked?"
  • Joan of Arc: "Do you think God has not wherewithal to clothe him?"
  • Examiner: "Had he hair?"
  • Joan of Arc: "Why should it have been cut off? I have not seen Saint Michael since I left the Castle of Crotoy. I do not see him often. I do not know if he has hair."

Jean Grey Institute for Higher Learning Spotlight: Students

The current group of students at the Jean Grey Institute for Higher Learning, dubbed “Generation X”, are the best and brightest of the mutant generation. Emma Frost and Scott Summers scoured the globe for their incoming class of mutants at the school. The students are divided into 3-person training squads: Hellions, Paladins, Exemplars, and Paragons. 

These students have much to learn but are already capable for fending for themselves and fighting for mutant rights.

Sebastian

[ Arthur-san is an unprecedented prodigy mystery writer. Honestly speaking (just here), I’m actually a *Sherlockian. ] 

[ However, the person himself does not know about this fact. So, the reason I cannot reveal it is because I like it so much, you know? ]

[ …..Whenever both of us get the chance to talk, lots of our topics mainly related to women. ]

[『How to drop a girl on one night 』that we talked about the other days was very useful. ]

[ But, I think since it’s Arthur-san, he would be able to practice that. ]


(*a devoted fan of or an expert on the adventures of Sherlock Holmes.

Dazai Osamu

[ You want to know things about Arthur? I really like him. ]

[ Coz of that, unintentionally, I would tease him persistently, but he would show a genuine unpleasant look on his face. ]

[ I wonder, perhaps he’s what people would usually call a [tsundere]…I don’t dislike a child who cannot be honest. ]

[ …..Huh? Arthur is not a [tsundere], but only has *awareness towards me? ]

[ If you say such cute things, I would want to tease (him) more, you know? ] { (?) not sure about this…


*苦手意識(nigate ishiki) = awareness that somebody (something) is (will be) hard to deal with, awareness that one is not good at something

Isaac Newton

[ Memory with Arthur-san? ……Arthur and I are on good terms in board games. ]

[ I always lose to him, but just barely. Arthur-san would definitely win because he sets a path to his victory. ]

[『Why do you have the match/contest?』you ask? ……That’s because I want to put an end to it. ]

[ I want Arthur-san and Dazai to stop messing around with me by calling name like Ai-chan……strongly. ]
