Claire Redfield | Through the years 1998-2015
Claire Redfield is one of my all time favourite protagonists in both game and film.
Who needs Leon when you are a sassy, motorbike riding, bowgun wielder of doom?
On the British Passport there features a Unicorn and a Lion. The Unicorn is Scotland and the Lion is England. Both wear a crown, however has anyone noticed or questioned why the unicorns is around its neck attached to a big chain?
Underneath is the words Dieu et mon droit , God and my right.
Does this not say everything about how the U.K sees Scotland as a whole?
The Lion and the Unicorn have been enemies for centuries through out many different cultures. This coat of arms is supposed to represent our unity, Scotland, the unicorn ruling with harmony and England, the lion ruling with might.The Shackles are there because according to mythology the Unicorn is a dangerous beast if set free.
The time is near to break the shackles that were bestowed upon us once upon a time. Freedom is ours by right and by choice. The date is nearing when we have our chance to make a change, break the restraints of the English and be free.Lets show the English how free and mighty we can be once set free. Vote Yes!
I’ll be voting Yes tomorrow for a democratic, more fairer Scotland. I think this speaks volumes.
First day into my MLitt in Creative Writing was an interesting experience to say the least. From examining controversial poems on the Holocaust, to rape and death. This was followed by one of the fellow class members declaring that those who suffered abuse when as a child are always more creative.
If this is day one, then what does the rest of the course have in store?
Based on a story called Women Without Men (yep, really), Caged shows Marie Allen’s journey over the course of her time in a women’s prison from a naïve nineteen-year-old to a hardened criminal who wears dark lipstick and smokes a lot of cigarettes and has a new haircut. While she’s in…
Agreed. More people need to watch this classic prison film! Orange is the New Black would be nothing today without this.
I didn’t realise it was national literacy day today but I’ll share my anecdote.
On the train earlier, I read Carmilla by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu. What makes this book great is that it predates Dracula as the first vampire tale by a whole 26 years, has sapphic undertones and also has a female protagonist who admits she is bewitched by the mysterious and ethereal beauty of the vampiric Carmilla.
Needless to say, I enjoyed it. Very recommended.

Valley of the Dolls (1967), dir. Mark Robson
Interesting study that looks at the relationship between fictional characters and capacity of self-growth.
In other words, it’s totally fine to
worship admire fictional characters. They are even better than real-life acquaintances!
