Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood ED 1 / "Uso"

Saying that we’ll meet again someday,we waved to each other,

but it seems we won’t see each other again

That final lie was a kind one; I won’t forget

The sky we saw that day, the crimson sky; will you remember someday?

Embracing a promise that could not be fulfilled, the two of us set out

LITERATURE MEME:
Seven Characters: Elinor Dashwood, Sense and Sensibility (7/7).
I have known myself to be divided from Edward forever, without hearing one circumstance that could make me less desire the connection. […] I have had to content against the unkindness of his sister and the insolence of his mother, and have suffered the punishment of an attachment without enjoying its advantages. And all this has been going on at the time when, as you too well know, it has not been my only unhappiness. If you can think me capable of ever feeling, surely you may suppose that I have suffered now.

History of Arda meme  »  Foundation of the realms in exile (II 3320)

The last leaders of the Faithful, Elendil and his sons, escaped from the Downfall [of Numenor] with nine ships, bearing a seedling of Nimloth, and the Seven Seeing-stones (gifts of the Eldar to their House); and they were borne on the wings of a great storm and cast up on the shores of Middle-earth. There they established in the North-west the Númenorean realms in exile, Arnor and Gondor. Elendil was the High King and dwelt in the North at Annúminas; and the rule in the South was committed to his sons, Isildur and Anárion. They founded there Osgiliath between Minas Ithil and Minas Anor,not far from the confines of Mordor.

When Xanthe came to the door, her cheeks wet with tears, Helen already knew that her father was dead.
"My Queen," said Xanthe, “you are Eddia."
Helen shook her head, still sorting through the newly returned memories. Knowing the consternation it would cause, and knowing she would overcome it, she said, “No, I am Eddis. The gods have told me so.”

Women’s costumes of Sifnos, Cyclades
Late 18th century
©Peloponnesian Folklore Foundation, Nafplion, Greece
Only a few specimens of firmly-dated costumes or parts of costumes from the Cycladic islands are to be found in museums and collections in Greece and abroad. All date from the late eighteenth or early nineteenth century. The Lyceum Club of Greek Women in Athens has one Sifnos costume and the Peloponnesian Folklore Foundation has two. The Benaki Museum in Athens has one costume of the same period from Andros and the National Historical Museum has one from Ios. All have much the same combination of garments. This ensemble was probably worn in other places besides the Cyclades, on the evidence of pictorial records.
