This is when Alice and Bob stay

15 janvier 2013

This is none of these situations. This is when Alice and Bob stay, most of the time, level headed and genuinely try their best to be together, and notwithstanding their success or failure, the Collateral Damage is at least 147 deaths, the destruction of three cities, and maybe even the End of the World as We Know It. Even if it can involve some irrationality (after all, Love Makes You Crazy or sometimes evil), it’s not the characters’ flaws, but the circumstances that force the couple to go to extreme length to be together. Or, even worse, they didn’t even realize what they were doing, and the couple’s stubborn insistence on being together results in an unintended ripple effect of death and destruction. In short, this trope is not about characterization, it is about the effects of a relationship on the story and the setting.

One such entity, UN Oceans, is designated as an inter agency collaboration mechanism, and yet even its position on the organizational chart suggests it is lost as an outlier or after thought that cannot possibly unite the traditional sectoral approach that is the present system. The Commission concludes, “Strong domestic and international political leadership and engagement is needed to drive governance reforms that will enable the global community to break out of the viscous cycle. We believe that our carefully designed package of interconnected, tangible measures would serve to strengthen and advance the more sustainable, ecosystem based management of high seas resources.” replica goyard handbags
