Sins of the Father

Zipporah has never even met her elven father. Yet she longs to find him, and is blinded by her mother’s unwarranted love for him. All the while, a human man has raised and taken care of both Zipporah and her mother. He loves them both, and selflessly disregards the constant comments about the elf.

Slanter’s grandfather tried to assassinate an evil king, and his family was shamed for it. Even after the powers that be decided to eventually follow the dwarf’s path and kill the king, there was no forgiveness for the family.

Pahe and Nat’s father is weak and cowardly, allowing their mother to sacrifice herself in his stead. The children know this, and his cowardice inspired courage within them.

Penn’s father and mother were kind and loving to him and all of his friends. This mentality lingers in the gnome, and shows throughout the stories.

Attilla’s father, on the other hand, despised the therian child. This, too, manifests within him.

World Cup 2014

To Console

 

To Console

This has been my favorite image of the World Cup in 2014.

David Luiz consoles James after a heartbreaking loss. It was clear that the gesture was done out of true respect (much deserved respect).

Brazil has since been eliminated as well, and David Luiz unfairly took much of the criticism after the match.

However, this image will be the one that I remember and will use as teaching tool for my son.
