Character Spotlight: Lahae and Lhianseil

Today I’m doing a two-for-one spotlight post about a toon whom I only briefly talked about before: Lahae, the Federation-aligned Romulan, as well as a new toon made by my friend Jamie, Lhianseil (a.k.a. Lee). Lhianseil and Lahae now share a backstory, so here’s two spotlights for the price of one!

For Cardassia!

I mentioned previously that one of the main things I was looking forward to in Victory is Life, is in fact making a Cardassian toon and going for a Cardassian build. It took a backseat while I was busy grinding out the Jem’Hadar toon/ships, but I made it! A proper Cardassian toon with a Cardassian ship, in Cardassian uniforms and a bunch of Cardassian BOffs!

Whew! That’s a mouthful of Cardassians. (>_>)

Germany Crashes and Burns

I don’t talk about another thing that I enjoy on my blog, but yes I am an avid football/soccer fan. And don’t ask me why, I have always rooted for the German team in World Cup tournaments.

As the reigning World Champion, Germany was one of the favorites to win the 2018 tournament. Yet they have really struggled in the first two games, losing to Mexico in their opening game and securing a miraculous win against Sweden in their second. This morning they were set against South Korea, arguably the weakest team in Group F… and all they needed was one goal to advance to the knockout round.

One lousy goal. Which apparently they couldn’t find.

Losing to South Korea is humiliating to Germany, but crashing and burning in the Group stage? It’s shocking. It’s depressing. It’s never happened before in World Cup history for Germany. How did it come to this? Even as a fan, I have to admit that in all three matches that Germany played, they were… uninspired. Their plays were meandering. No spark. No direction. It’s a lot of trying the same thing over and over again and hoping something changed. Compared to their performances in 2010 and 2014, it’s like this was a completely different team. Granted, they’ve lost a number of key players between 2014 and now: Klose, Schweinsteiger, Podolski, and Lahm, and the remaining veterans just aren’t up to snuff. The previously brilliant Muller has done about squat in this tournament, Ozil’s passes were abysmal throughout… ah well, I could go on, but what’s the point.

This is not a sports blog so I won’t say a whole lot more. Suffice to say I am extremely disappointed.
