SBS just announced that we're not sending any of the Australian delegation over - no surprise, given that would warrant a total of 24 days just in quarantine, and the associated expenses, plus the expense of however many people's time for probably a solid six weeks - and I'm really wondering how many more performers are going to announce that in the weeks to come. What are your thoughts on that front?
(On that front more being because I'm living on this little nearly COVID-free island and nearly shat a brick looking up the daily numbers in the Netherlands. And their total numbers. What the fuck nearly a tenth of their population has had it what the fuck?! We've had less cases in total in Australia than they've had in the past week?! No wonder we're not coming.)
The Australian delegation not coming are sad but expected news. I doubt it will be the only country that will have to resort to their live-on-tape performance tbh. Maybe someone will not fly out there because the of their local situation, or a member of the delegation got sick, or maybe once in Rotterdam they discover they’ve been in touch with a positive case so they have to isolate in their hotel as a preventative measure, I think that it is unlikely the whole thing to goes ahead without a hitch.
It’s gotta be weird to see the covid numbers of other countries when everything is a lot more under control over there (it’s weird to me watching Montaigne sing “technicolour” in a stadium full of people, some people really be living semi normal lives in some places huh). I understand the hesitation of sending a team of people thousands of kms away to a “unsafe” place and how costly the entire thing would be. Although apparently the Australian women’s football team were IN the Netherlands just last week for a match, but things move very fast and at the time they left Australia maybe things were more under control over here? (also sports is always always a much bigger priority)

Been very long
Under my skin... U...N...D...E...R... MY SKIN. I feel as if I am drowning in my own sorrows. Looking down at the destruction of my own faults and hates. Carrying away as if nothing matters. Not giving a damn or care in the world. Who needs this anyway? An animal in a cage, we are trapped in our own worlds trying to face goals in life, but most of the time it is difficult to see the laughs and friendliness in those. These feelings are bottled up in a bottle ready to just explode and release for everyone to see.
This is something that I wonder about the Game, let alone the Anime, But do Reaper aged? Like do they age up or do there remind the age they where in life?
Like Shibuya Reaper doesn’t seem like they are older in Neo. Coco who a kid, seem like she a kid to me, even after 3 year.
And the same for Sho Minamimoto. I think he still 18 with the other Wicked Twisters who all are 18 from what it seem. Or at least in college age.
FR • Voici le quatrième aesthetic dédié à Oden ! C'est un guerrier au grand cœur, au caractère parfois rebelle, mais tout de même raisonnable.
Je ne le poste ici que maintenant car j'étais persuadé(e) de l'avoir posté, mais ce n'était pas le cas. Désolé(e) du retard.
EN • Here's the fourth aesthetic about Oden! He's a big-hearted warrior, sometimes rebellious, sometimes sensible and reasonable.
I post it here only now because I was pretty sure it was, but I was wrong. I'm sorry about that.
CHARACTER ARC ► SAINT GRAVES
so. you got worse. and i'm not entirely sure i can blame you for it. maybe it was in you all along, hidden and waiting, or maybe someone planted it in you and watched it grow. either way, it's there now and you hold it in your fist like a second heart - this blood, this hunger, this thrill of having teeth and using them. perhaps you are right to. you are a mirror for the hardness of the world, and a mirror that we could all stand to look in more often. it's hard to watch the bleeding bring about more blood, but it is undeniable that you are very good at wounding.
