Dania, I'm not calling you a filthy sadist.

Oh, don't worry. I'm not taking it personal or anything like that, I had just hoped for The Dane to be somewhat more kind at heart. It's your story and I'm honored indirectly being mentioned in it

What SF4 goes, then the only thing I know about those games is that SF is short for Street Fighter (and 4 means fourth edition ) and then the tiny bit I've accidentally seen on various websites. That kind of game has never been of my interest. As a kid I tried out an arcade game like SF (or it was a clone, can't remember) but I lost interest in it the first time I tried playing it. On the other hand, I've played quite some Bubble Bobble and top-down shooters

We got Street Fighter links in a stalker thread. Yo, eSports. Shoutouts to Seth Killian.

Sadly, the subject matter of most of Zone/Atrophy doesn't focus on kindheartedness. God Morgen is in some ways an exception to that. When I set out to create the character that would later become the Dane, my goal was to make someone even scarier and more dangerous than Westmoreland.

I managed to actually connect with a Norwegian guy who has been kind enough to tell me about Norwegian culture, so in the new and improved versions of the original arcs, and the new arcs that she's involved in, Velvet is much more authentically Norwegian because I'm not just guessing anymore. (Though I just used an online translator for the title.)

Would you believe me if I told you 'Good Morning' translates to 'God morgen' in both Danish and Norwegian (but likely pronounced a little different, -I've never been in Norway)?

Denmark and Norway were in a personal union from 1536–1814 under the Danish monarchs.
Here is a little historical reading about it:

I will try getting used to be a monster, but no promises

Don't tell me you have first now found out The Zone is chauvinist, and not only in Hauu's stories. Please at the same time note that his main protagonist is a female. There are also main male protagonists, but in the end, all the stories have a female as center.

She's trolling. It's not at all chauvinist; it's a combat zone, you don't find a lot of women in combat zones. That's just how it is. Men aren't physically designed to nurse infants, women aren't physically designed to fight. It doesn't mean women can't be good soldiers, or men can't be good nannies - but aptitudes are aptitudes and inclinations are inclinations. I don't see too many women grabbing AKs and rushing off to Sierra Leone.

Note that as far as I know, there are no females in any of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games, and it wouldn't be believable if there were. Elizabeth and Velvet are both very much larger than life hollywood type characters, but at least they don't just blithely run around a Zone full of men without a care in the world. Neither is portrayed negatively in comparison with men; so rather than male chauvinist or misogynist, the Zone and Atrophy can only be called feminist.

I would believe it, Dania - would you believe that I was, vaguely, aware of Denmark and Norway's storied history? If you've got a good memory, you'll recall that when pt.2 was still on the blog, when Velvet was listing her pros when thinking of joining Rudakov, Danish was among the languages she said she was proficient in. I got Europe cred! Sort of.

Anyway, got that God Morgen up - ironically just as I'm about to go to bed - so the game is afoot.

Yes, I believe you Hauu.

I'm afraid most Danish teenagers today are only superficial aware of the connection between Norway and Denmark. Not to mention the other parts of Europe we once ruled, pretty strange to think at while looking at tiny Denmark on a map.
