The Fantasy World of Skyrim
The world of fantasy is a world without limits. From ancient lone travellers to intergalactic wars, it is no surprise why so many of us love to immerse ourselves in the fantasy genre. However, constructing a prosperous fantasy world is no easy task. The secret lies in the details, and the more thorough the mechanics of its universe, the better. Hence why the best fantasy worlds hold immensely detailed histories and narratives, carefully thought of character relations, and contain natural laws that challenge ones we’re familiar with within our world. Magic and folklore, mythical creatures not found on Earth, and skylines filled with planets and other celestial beings we can only dream of are only a few examples of what is possible in the world of fantasy – and non-come close to the fantasy world of the Elder Scrolls, Tamriel, and especially the province of Skyrim, home of the Nords.
A Day in the Life of a Theatre Practitioner
I love my job because it allows me to enter worlds I never thought were possible. As a theatre practitioner, I get the opportunity to take a step out of the hustle and bustle of the world and allow myself to immerse in the most extraordinary of worlds. Let me walk you through the joys that have made leaving the arts sector impossible, no matter the challenges that face me on the road ahead.
In a world not unlike our own, a country lay besieged by a frightening oligarchy, controlled by a political alliance called ‘The Pear Tree Party.’ Boasting of a prosperous future for their nation. So long as the country did what they were told.
Snow White and the Non-Poisonous Pear
Snow White stood at her window for what seemed like forever. Her night, black hair stroked her rosy, pink cheeks as she looked out at the front garden, tapping her fingers rapidly against the wooden windowsill. The world, like always, looked perfect, as if taken out of a fairy tale. The woods were rife with life today, and each came to greet Snow White that morning. The squirrels scattered across the highest branches of the trees, the family of deer grazed quietly on the rain-dewed lawn, and the birds sang their morning songs. The day was perfect, and Snow White knew what was to happen to her. She was waiting for her wicked stepmother to arrive.
7 Secrets of the London Underground
The London Underground has served Londoners since 1863. Since its opening, up to 2 million people ride the tubes every single day on their daily commute. It is no secret that it has become part of London’s identity and an invaluable part of its people’s daily lives. I personally use the Underground at least 10 times per week for various journeys around the Capital and with the joys of the 16-25 Railcard, it becomes the cheapest method of transport in London by far, even beating the London Bus in price and speed, but I think I will save that for another post.
Below the Surface
Have you ever been ice diving? It’s like cave diving, but colder, and there are fewer places to come up for air. But you’re in open water. It is meant to be great for your body; it’ll keep you looking young if you do it often enough.
Little Blue Skiing Hood
Once upon a time, far past seas of oil and mountains of metal, in a place only ever seen in fairy tales, lived a young boy on the bank of a great, vast pond. The little boy slept inside his little workshop, attempting various little projects throughout the year. Every morning, he would wake up and brew himself some tea and look out at the great pond outside his window, smiling each time he did so. While the tea was still hot, he would slide into a pair of trousers, some worn down trainers and put on his favourite blue hoodie.
The skies had been overcast for almost a week now, and I had yet to see the sun reveal itself from behind its cover for six days. Scattered downpours were raising the water levels of the river that ran through this idle town.
