Asked in The Difference Between, Celtic Mythology, Celtic History

What is the difference between Celts and Picts?

User Avatar
The difference is that the Picts were a people who merged with the Scots and Gaels, but the Celts were not a people, more a collection of semi-mythical primitive tribes somewhere in the Northern Spanish area where the Basques are today.Some say they came from Morocco first then migrated. The difference is that the Picts were a people who merged with the Scots and Gaels, but the Celts were not a people, more a collection of semi-mythical primitive tribes somewhere in the Northern Spanish area where the Basques are today.Some say they came from Morocco first then migrated. Answer Modern thinking is that Picts were in fact from Norway - which would make them Germanic of origin - not the kind of dark skinned Berber Celt that the Basques etc are. Why the 'Scots' are often blond haired.
Asked in Fantasy Books, King Arthur, Celtic Mythology

What was King Arthur as a child?

User Avatar
King Arthur the son of Uther Pendragon and was whisked away by Merlin as a child and thus never knew of his royal lineage. He served a knight who needed a sword in a tournament. He couldn't find one right away, until he found the fabled Sword and the Stone, which he pulled out effortlessly. Once pulled, he was recognized as the young king of England, and kept Merlin as his advisor for the majority of his reign.

Does amano ichigo love kashino makoto?

User Avatar
So far she hasn't said anything about liking kashino but in episode 41... ((MAJOR_SPOILER!!))">((MAJOR SPOILER!!)) when the oven explodes Kashino grabs Ichigo and she falls on the floor next to him. He also saves her from being cut from the glass on the floor and then they look into each other's eyes for a moment. And then both blush then turn away. that is all the love between kashino and ichigo up to episode 42 but it looks like there will be a little bit more in ep 43 when it come out. other scenes with ichigo and kashino as a possible lovers is when kashino saves ichigo when she jumps into the pond. and then another is when ichigo wakes up and sees kashino fell asleep beside her in the kitchen and that he put his jacket on her so she wouldn't catch a cold. thirdly in the episode that marron appears in, when chocolat shows marron kashino's notebook, there is a very brief scene where on the side of the page it looks as if kashino had drawn a picture of ichigo. so it's kind of obvious now that kashino does have some feeling for ichigo but we'll have to wait to see what ichigo feels :). Waimaria: Hi, additionally, in episode 50, the last episode of the first series, they (kind of) show that they're in love with eachother. That is so cute! You should check that out. In episode 51, (latest episode for now) it shows Kashino being jealous towards Johnny. Kashino Admits He Loves Ichigo in ' Yumeiro Patissiere Professional Episode 11' In episode 13, Kashino confesses his feelings to Ichigo. (:

Are the Irish Celts or Gaels or both?

User Avatar
Both. As speakers or descendants of speakers of a Celtic language they would be considered Celts. A Gaelic-speaking Celt of Scotland, Ireland or the Isle of Man would qualify as a Gael. Brythonic is the other branch of Celtic languages that include Welsh, Breton and Cornish. It appears there is some confusion about Gaelic and Celtic and the reason may be similar to the situation with music. To many people "Celtic" music means Irish music with perhaps some Scottish thrown in, but they don't hear much about Welsh, Breton, Manx or Cornish music so Celtic has come to mean Irish to many.

There would be specific differences, but Druid's basically performed the same feats as Wizards and Magicians, which was to practice in sorcery and/or magic. A druid is also a class in the game World of Warcraft.

Does chapter 13 bankruptcy let you keep your house?

User Avatar
If you file a chapter 7 (which wipes out your debts) you can keep your house if you reaffirm (means you will continue to make your full payments on). THis can also be done on your auto. In Chapter 13, you will be paying a certain percentage towards your date, based on your income. I am not 100% sure, but I believe it works the same way as far as affirmation. You would probably still have to make your "full" housepayment. Good luck. Hope this helped. The following link may be of interest to you: http://debtwipeout.com/chapter1.htm Just changing, maybe explaining, the above a bit more: Chap 13 for sure (and even 11 in reality)...are NOT interested in hurting you or taking things away...what it really wants to do is make sure you keep all the things you CAN AFFORD to keep. Which is also to say...if you can't afford your house...no matter how much you want it or love it....there is really no way you can keep it.
