The long Intro...

Pastkeeper is a story centered on the importance of culture and language, I was thinking about the discover of the rosetta stone and what we learned about the past from the decoding of ancient languages and what more we leave for the future since it was used to leave a sign. So while I was brainwashed by my litterature study I gave birth to this story. After a nuclear disaster (such as the one which distoyed the world in Hokuto no ken XXXDDD) people lived strangely as a primitives in a colony in the middle of the nuclear desert. Why they weren’t try to turn back to normality? Why they didn’t build houses? Why they didn’t move to a better place? Because they forgot. But somebody remembers how was before, they’re called Pastkeepers and they’re whorshipped as precious treasures by the people. You may ask: “but if they know, why they don’t lead the people to a betterlife?” because they live under a blind dictatorship, and they’re not allowed to talk and express their ideas and to tell the people what they know…. Ok I wan’t bother you more because the story is a little Philosophycal but I hope this long description would help you with the competition….

2008-09-05 [WonderTweek]: What's italy like? I've only been to Rome and to be honest, it wasn't as amazing as everyone says it is XD
I mean yeah the ruins were gorgeous, and I loved the old architecture
However the city life was so crazy I was like @.@

2008-09-06 [5thwitch]: well, Italy is really different in every region, for example the north is etremely different from the south, architecturally culturaly and environmentally. btw even if piedmont (the region i live, with capital turin) and lombardy (the region near us with capital milan) are so near, they're extremely different. It is said that Milan is the capital of the north and Rome the capital of the south. in fact even if they're too two big cities of italy they are different, Rome is simply historical, great, monumental, warm and luminous, Milan is chaotic,vertically developped, cold and foggy. you know milan It's more Tokyo-like than italy-like as turin is. 

2008-09-06 [Future Dictator]: hows florence? school has art program there i want to do

some day i'll cross that annoying alantic ocean *fistshake*
