Thank you!

Now I'm interesting in the number that count on the first page, today is 13

I wonder what is it
murrponchan on August 30th, 2010 04:17 pm (UTC)
It seems to be a countdown, as previous days have had 18-14. The first number to pop up after LIFE released was 18.

Hi, I have another thing...but I don't know if it is relevant enough.

But at the beginning of the last Video (the one with all the characters)
we see the lines :

it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken


For those interested, it is from Sonnet 116 by William Shakespear.

The sonnet goes like this:

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.


To paraphrase the Sonnet (for those who have trouble understanding Shakespear), it basically talks about LOVE
It mocks in the beginning how people take

Love not seriously enough.
Love is not something to be taken lightly.
It is something strong, and no matter what happend, you will always love that someone.
Love is impossible to measure, and you cannot change it.
When 2 people fall in love, no one can change it.
It is their guiding light and it will last forever.
and if anyone disagree with it, then no one has ever truly loved anyone.

I know this Sonnet very well (it is my audition piece for classical plays)
So i'm a bit puzzle as to why they would quote from it.
As far as we know, it doesn't look like a "love" story.

so perhaps, they used that line to generalize the emotion and not specify it to Love...Revenge maybe?

it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken


That emotions/feelings are so strong that nothing can change them.
If you feel Revenge, no matter what happen, nothing will change that feeling until you are satisfied?

I dunno, I'm having a hard to figure out why they would pick such line...Maybe they had no idea and just thought it sounded cool..or maybe there is a reason for it.

Sorry, my nerdy self was curious about this line when I first saw it.
shiro_renja on August 30th, 2010 05:24 pm (UTC)
or perhaps it has to do with "their bond"

but as i know Shakespear stuff very well, there are plenty of other works they could have use to relate to "bond" rather then "love"
since Shakespear was very specific in his work when choosing a theme.

or maybe it has no link whatsoever!

Yay~,we were definitely in a need for something like that ,Thank you so much dear Mods for the new tag ^ ^ & for always take care of our Eden ;), really appreciate your efforts in making everything well-organized & easy to find ♥

i don't know if this links will be useful as well *shy*,but i just thought to try ^ ^

Here is a great Caps gallery from dear "moka_n_waffles" for Club8 since the first day we know about till the opening and even after that ,i think it will be some kind of memorable documentary of that event ^O^ -
(i'm sure she had announced her entry here in the community leading to her journal,but i couldn't find that entry so i put the direct link from her journal..sorry *shy*)

- and also there is some related discussion about Eito's Project (Prologue of Patch) - which somehow related to Club8 - and its signs& hints HERE (- containing spoiler for the first 4 videos of the Patch)

Thanks again for everything ^_^,and sorry for bothering you ✿

Thanks for this! I've been unable to get online for MONTHS until this past week so this is very appreciated since I've been so confused as to what this is all about XD I do have a question maybe someone cn answer though?

When is club8 available? I mean, does anyone know specific times of day, timezone specific also, when one can actually go through the doors? I haven't been able to get in the doors, only throw cards, the past two days I've gone to the site. Of course, Japan time is 14 hours ahead of my time so I'm sure that has something to do with it? I've heard of dogs and other things going on "outside the club" but still haven't seen anything like that. Is there a more general post with details like that so I can experience the site/see the inside and interact with it? I know it isn't much just yet but XDDDD any help would be appreciated greatly!

Thanks!

As far as I know, Club8 first opened at midnight JST the night of August 25th. That was when users were first able to enter, create a nickname, and talk to the shadows. After that users were able to enter the club at anytime. So I'm not completely sure but I think you can try entering either at 8pm JST or 12am JST. 8pm simply because that was when Club8 used to update their teasers, and 12am because that was when Club8 actually opened up to everyone. After you click on the door and enter you just need to enter your name in Roman characters and click on the darkest shadow for new information. As for information pertaining to Club8 before it officially opened you can try checking the club8 tag. The activities outside of the club seem to have calmed down since now most of the activity is going on inside of the club now :) Good luck!
