Flowers of Perun backstory was in Every Leaf In Springtime.

Pip: So, ah, what’s she testing?

Seras: Perenova tsvetje: the Flowers of Perun.

Obtained by Sir Integra in the wilds of Poland, after a nightlong vigil and a battle with the forest itself!

Pip: She fought with trees?

Seras: Well, they were really dangerous trees!

If Pip had watched Evil Dead, he’d know just how dangerous trees can be (especially to women).

Yeah, that’s the problem with accomplishments like that. On one hand they are truly magnificent feats, the kind that are eventually listed in epics. But on the other they don’t sound nearly as impressive when reworded by some wise guy. Still, Pip should show a little more respect. Integra took on a forest. Most people would be screwed when confronted with one irate tree, and Integra faced down an entire $%^#! forest. When somebody does something like that, well there’s really only one thing you can do to take them down.

And that is to let our powers combine!

EARTH!

He would change his mind if Integra had to save him from Old Man Willow. (I may do that, just to show him.)

WIND!

Those where some scary trees! I think I might have to re-read that storyline. To remember all the stuff that happened.Yayyy Now I have something to do during Computer Science!!!

WATER!!

Of COURSE trees can be dangerous. Having climbed them for most of my childhood, they could be very tricky, like Old Man Willow.

Aw, crap. How’d I walk into the forum thread right as a Captain Planet summoning was beginning? Not that I don’t like him, but I had to get stuck with Ma-Ti. ….. *sigh*

HEART!

“In the wilds of Poland” hmm? You know, it may be misleading ;-). I am from Poland. We are quite used to being considered as inhabitants of an exotic country by people from other parts of the world, but it isn’t as wild as some people think. And Puszcza Białowieska ( more or less pronounced as [pooshcha byauovyeska]) is in fact only a little part of the country.

By the way, as a fangirl of Interga (and of Shine of course), I’d be really happy to see her there. And it’s nice to think she could have her reasons to come.

So far, Integra hasn’t had a reason to visit anywhere in Poland but a wild forest. I’ll try to think of an excuse for someone from Hellsing to visit Warsaw ^_^

Hey, as long as you’re here, do you have any ideas for the Polish equivalent of Hellsing? I researched the Holy League in France after I saw it mentioned in a history book. I’d like to do the same thing for other countries, but I don’t know where to start.

By “equivalent” you mean some quasi-military organisation connected somehow with religion, nowadays or in the past? Then now nothing comes to my mind. In the past, we were multicultural country, mostly catholic, that’s true, but with rather high level of tolerance for others (e.g. Poland was told to be the country without witch-hunt and inqisition). Now… well, we have something more like the Section XIII – but they are mostly fanatic grandmas (sic!) gathered around one radiostation and its charismatic founder – father Rydzyk. Generally they are rather object of jokes of polish people than some serious force but… The radio is known from spreading hatred towards everything that’s different that their point of view (eg. aginst Jews) and they try to be more saint than the pope himself. Its audiance is called “moherowe berety” which can be (more or less)translated as “berets of mohair”, the name comes from the typical headdress of old ladies. Anyway, I’m afraid it can be hard for you to find anything about them in english, it’s not something we are very proud of…

SailorPtah on Wed Apr 30, 2008 10:16 am

Could be. But it doesn’t have to be real.

After all, Section XIII isn’t real. The Vatican exists, but it doesn’t actually have a secret group of monster-slaying assassins. It’s the same with the British Library: it’s an existing organization, but it doesn’t really employ book-hunting paper users. Hellsing isn’t even related to a real organization, just a character from a novel.

So if you think of any novels or organizations or other things that I could use as a source of inspiration for a fake organization, that would be great.

On the other hand, I may have to use the Mohair Berets . . . because the image of a sweet old woman in a beret going Alexander Anderson on a surprised vampire is hilarious 😀

Nesmin on Wed Apr 30, 2008 11:10 am

I know, I know… I thought more about the Holy League.

If I come across something interesting in the fiction world I’ll let you know.

The contrast between the illusion of “sweet old women” and they’re real nature of fighting fanatic is base for many mohair-jokes. But I wouldn’t like to be in that vampire’s shoes. 😉

Oh, and one more thing: we never write mohair berets with capital letters. Not because of disrespect, but it really isn’t an organisation, it’s just a group of people, like bicycle lovers or bookworms, or sth.

SailorPtah on Wed Apr 30, 2008 12:04 pm

Awesome. This sounds like comedy gold already.

I’ll keep it in mind, thanks!
