    Silent Hill 3 - 2000 Part 1

    ((I make these as I play through the games again ect so sorry it's been a while since my last ones :) ))

    Seventeen years have passed since the events of Silent Hill, and the baby whom the Incubator gave to Harry Mason at the end of the first game was named Heather Mason, is now a teenage girl.

    While running an errand for her father at the Central Square Shopping Center, Heather falls asleep inside a fast-food restaurant and dreams about Silent Hill, where she finds herself wandering through a nightmarish amusement park.

    After fighting monsters, Heather walks along the roller coaster tracks until she is struck down by the carriage startling her awake in the mall. She calls her father and lets him know that she is on her way home. Just as she is leaving, however, Heather encounters a detective named Douglas Cartland, who was hired by the Order to find her.

    Heather slips him by going into the restroom and jumping out a window, but her way out is blocked on both ends, forcing her to find another way through the mall. Inside the mall, Heather realizes that there are strange monsters lurking around, and in a clothing store, Heather finds a handgun to defend herself with.

    As Heather wanders through the mall, she encounters a barefoot woman dressed in all black with flowing blonde hair. The high priestess of the Order, Claudia Wolf, who has been searching for Heather (or rather, Alessa's reborn soul) for a long time.

    Claudia tells Heather that her talents are required and to "remember me, and your true self as well", and that she will lead them to Paradise "with bloodstained hands". Heather experiences a migraine as Claudia leaves.

    When Heather enters an elevator, its sudden descent causes a radio to drop from the ceiling, which like in Silent Hill 2 emits static whenever monsters are nearby. The elevator doors open revealing a second, more sinister-looking elevator where she first encounters Valtiel who is hanging another monster behind a huge industrial fan as the elevator goes down, Heather then finds herself inside the Otherworld that looks like a nightmarish version of the mall.

    But manages to make it back to the Real World after a battle with an enormous worm, known as the Split Worm, in the mall's depths

    Once back Heather heads for the subway to get home. However, Douglas stops her; Heather assumes that the private investigator is on Claudia's side, but he tells her that he was only hired to find her. Heather runs from him entering the subway.

    As with the mall, the subway is deserted, apart from the odd monsters. After she narrowly avoids being run over by a subway car, she takes the car to the underpass and fights her way through the corridors until she reaches a construction site, which she uses to reach another building, the Hilltop Center, which is adjacent to the construction site through an open window, once entered finds herself in the Otherworld again.

    Heather encounters a man named Vincent Smith, who is also a priest of the Order, but he has different views on where the cult should go.

    After a brief conversation she runs from him saying there’s something wrong with him. When Heather reaches the exit, she finds a monster called the Glutton blocking it. Its name is attributed to the creature in the story ‘Tu Fui, Ego Eris’ which gobbled up knights and villagers who attempted to leave their village while not actively hostile, it makes the exit inaccessible like how the creature in the story was an obstacle to the villagers.

    Heather finds the scattered pages of a fairy tale saying its name "Tu Fui, Ego Eris" which makes the monster disappear.

    Vida solo hay una y yo aquí sufriendo en vez de estar disfrutando el oxígeno que me permiten mis pulmones saborear.

    Si no lo hago ahora, probablemente me lamente muy feo eso en el futuro.

    Lola T380

    Lola built two T380s, one went to De Cadenet (HU1) and one to International Race Services in Italy (HU2).

    HU1 was first entered in the 1975 Le Mans 24 Hours and, despite having problems, notably a lack of top speed on the Mulsanne Straight, it finished a creditable 14th overall and 5th in the S3.0 class (Sports three-litre) with owner and entrant Alain De Cadenet and Chris Craft at the wheel. HU1 returned the following year, 1976, with the same driving team and, following successful aerodynamic alterations to the bodywork, it qualified 3rd and finished in the same position to give Lola their best ever Le Mans result. Out of interest HU1 was weighed at Le Mans, it tipped the scales at 743kgs - 1638lbs. (Source: Lola Heritage)

    The "Witch Cake" - a 1600s forgotten recipe you probably won't try

    Are these cakes weapons against dark forces or just "spiky bagels"?

    In 17th century England and New England, it was believed that a so-called “witch’s cake” had the power to reveal whether witchcraft was afflicting a person with symptoms of illness. It was made with rye flour and the urine of the afflicted person, and the cake was then fed to a dog. If the dog exhibited the same symptoms as the ill person, the presence of witchcraft was “proven.” Well…I suspect…

    A few years ago in the rpc, I once saw multiple posts talking about how it is stereotypical for Jewish muses to speak Yiddish. Because not only is it a common thing Jewish characters do in media, but also because historically ( and this is me strictly recalling the post I read ) in America, Jewish immigrants wanted to assimilate and therefore they refrained from speaking Yiddish and teaching it to the following generations.
    But even so, I’ve always believed Yiddish was something Leah knew. This is because Leah (a 44 year old woman ) was partially raised by her grandparents who would pepper Yiddish into their sentences. And even when Leah was no longer raised by them, she would remain possessing an extensive interest in history, culture and language especially if it is her own. Leah’s the type of woman who would read an academic article on the evolution of Jewish surnames. Try to see what she can find about her great-great-great grandmother. Find out what’s applicable about the first neighborhood her ancestors lived in when they came to America. Really, it ties into how easily she gravitated into journalism for a career. Because is she not keeping track of history by even just reporting the smallest thing?
    This is a contrast to Ben who knows some Hebrew (just as Leah does, but Ben isn’t proficient in it) but he doesn’t know Yiddish beyond a few expressions. Although Ben identifies himself as Jewish on both a cultural & religious front, he honestly lacks interest for anything pertaining to past history. Half of the things he learns (whether it be about the world or family history) tends to come from Leah anyway. And if he remembers it, he does. If he doesn’t - well, he doesn’t.
    #leah / headcanons. #ben / headcanons. #i felt the need to write this because i started doing a informative meme about leah. listed the languages she can speak... #then i thought i need to make a post about leah's interest in history & culture so ppl just don't think she's a jewish character #who knows these languages just BECAUSE she's jewish. #but if i'm wrong for this headcanon just let me know bc this isn't my culture to speak on 😩

    Кто был никем, никем остался.

    Кто был никем, тот стал никем.

    Он лез наверх, но проиграл всё.

    Он не дождался перемен.

    Как он кричал:«Даёшь Советы!»

    Как он кричал:«Делёж даёшь!»

    В Кремле свои авторитеты

    На всех горластых точат нож.

    Как он кричал:«Земля народу!»

    Как он кричал:«Ждём перемен!»

    Но крик его не стоил много,

    Кто был никем, тот стал никем.

    Он высоко не смог подняться.

    Он получил суровый срок.

    Усатый дьявол вокруг пальцев

    Обвёл его, как весь народ.

    Кто был никем, никем остался.

    Кто был никем, тот стал никем.

    Он лез наверх, но проиграл всё.

    Он не дождался перемен.
