Anon shut the fuck up please! Do you have any idea how hard it is for closed minded families to understand? As a Latina myself it's difficult to even say a word against my family cause it's "Wrong". For peep's sake some of us can't even get tattoos or other piercings cause of how closed minded some families are. So please, shut up! If you don't know anything about other cultures, especially in Latin America, then keep your mouth fucking shut.

I'm learning Korean but I've had this question for quite a while already. When spelling a word like today's word, How do you know when to use ㅅ or ㅆ?

If you are spelling written words with ㅅ or ㅆ you will have to memorize how the word is spelled. If you hear the word spoken and have to spell it, then listen for the tone and aspiration of the sound. ㅆ is tense, which means that there is less air used when spoken. ㅅ, by contrast, is said with a slight exhale of air. As an example of this, place your hand in front of your mouth when saying 사. You should be able to feel air hit your hand. When saying 싸 you should feel almost no air, none at all if you’re perfect. Practice this! 

There are tonal differences as well between ㅅ or ㅆ, even if Korean isn’t technically a tonal language. Vowels followed by ㅆ tend to be of a higher pitch. 사 then, would sound lower than 싸. This video is an example of the tonal difference. 

ㅅ - Plain/aspirated consonant (spoken with air)

ㅆ - Unaspirated, tense, usually followed by a higher pitched vowel

Got any bagginshield fic recs?

Oh, I certainly do. XD Not sure how many you’ve read, but I’ll just post all the ones I really like. 

The Road Delivered Us Home-In the years since Bilbo left Erebor, he has lost his respectability, gained a nephew, and gotten on with life at Bag End.He’d left aside adventure for the comforts and peace of his little Hobbit hole, and for the love of a child who needed him. Though perhaps, adventures can yet find him. (This is my absolute favorite Bagginshield fic to date, I devoured it in twelve hours) 

Made and Remade the Necklace of Songs-In a Middle Earth where dwarves dream of Heartsongs and hobbits carry the name of their fated partner as private Mark, Bilbo Baggins had never been able to properly translate the strange rows of runes inscribed on his wrist.And likewise, Thorin Oakenshield had never imagined he would hear the voice of his Heartsong from a fussy little gentlehobbit.

Something Blue-Thorin marries Bilbo after the Battle of Five Armies, a marriage of convenience, not love. Slowly, they must come to make the best of it, Bilbo resolves. After all, he’s a Hobbit. They make the best of things. (This one is SO SO SO GOOD. Lots of angst and pining. Good stuff.)

Ok anon, listen: My dad likes to tell me I should always be submissive when talking to men, he also NEVER says "please" to me or any female and makes sure we know we're being ordered, because we're women. My mom gets mad at him for that BUT she also tells me I should do things for my brothers because they're men. Add to the fact that being Latinas we're raised in highly conservative environments and you get that, we're not "rubbing" anything to anyone's face, we're struggling...

We’re taught that girls should be submissive and that they belong at home to take care of the kids, clean, and cook for the “men of the house.” If by any chance we differ from this thoughts we are all of the sudden “lazy” “gold diggers” “whores” or just plain out “stupid.” And as much as I hate saying this, feminism isn’t common in Latino families.

What do you do when you're sad?

Whatever my heart is calling for that time around. Sometimes I wash my bed sheets and bring an entire basket of food into my bedchamber so that I’ve minimal reason to move. Other times I travel far distances for hiking trips in which mountains are climbed until my body just doesn’t have the energy to feel sadness. Sometimes I clamber into a tree to hide while reading, napping, or doing nothing for many hours. Other times I cry — oftentimes I cry. Sometimes sewing, writing, snuggling or plain sitting is had. Other times I titter at myself in the mirror until I’m laughing so hard there’s no room for sadness. Sometimes I phone my partner or sisters in spirit and in no time I’ve forgotten why my heart was hurting so. Sometimes I do absolutely nothing but breathe, sometimes hardly that. Whichever environment is healthiest and most healing for me is where I settle myself for the time being :) I spend the time doing whatever will keep me comfortable and safe while the sadness passes through. x

Hi! Love your blog! I don't know if you heard, but they just cast Dan Stevens (who was Matthew Crawley in Downton Abbey) as the Beast in the movie with Emma Watson! What do you think of his casting?

(I thought they cast Ryan Gosling a while ago but I guess that was just a rumour) I’m going to give this a TWO THUMBS UP! Looks-wise, at least. I’ve never seen his acting so I can’t really judge him on that.

I'm really not certain Disney can pull off Han's redemption because all the fanfics that do so beautifully give us his thoughts and perspective and inner feelings and that's not easy to convey on a screen. Also, they last over a long period of time (months or years) and that's hard to fit into a 2 hour movie. I'm afraid if they attempt it, they'll fail and make the Hans fans even more hated in the Frozen fandom. Not to mention, you can't pull off Helsa in a couple of days/weeks. Hint it, maybe

My dear anon.

Hans Christian Andersen said “Where words fail, music speaks.”. And I say that what you think could take years, a song would do.

This brings to my memory one of my favorite Disney movies, favorite musical sequences, and favorite bonding time between memorable characters that though their relationship started conflictive, they found true love in the end. They grew, they learned, they changed for the better. Do I need to tell you which classic, epic, timeless Disney movie am I talking about?

May I say that Disney has great talent on showing transitions that could take months through just a musical number? Inner thoughts through lyrics as well. And Frozen is a musical after all. Didn’t they show Elsa and Anna getting older through the years through a musical number?

What about Hans changing his ways? What about Elsa giving him the chance to make amends and see the good he is capable of? What about them opening up to a possible love relationship? 

I say Disney can totally pull this off.

P.S. I have said many times in the past I don’t expect a sequel redeeming Hans to show Helsa completely canon by the end of the movie. I do expect however, hints of these two growing feelings for each other. Subtitle hints like held gaze, secret smiles, making each other laugh, unintentional hand holding, dramatic demonstrations protecting the other from harm, etc.

I repeat. Disney can totally pull this off.

Your text post about your mom is the biggest lie ever! I highly doubt any female would ever be ashamed or embarrassed of another woman for being a feminist. You just like to prove that you're the only educated one in your family. What a shame!

You must live in a perfect world eh?

Do you know what it’s like to have a closed-minded poc family? Do you?

Your writing project sounds absolutely fantastic!! I'm Asian American so I love seeing any type of Asian representation in media and the idea is amazing as well. Would you ever consider making GIFS or graphics for it? That's definitely be something I'd love to see. Keep writing and being perfect!

Ahh I’m glad it interests you! Honestly, there are so few Asia-based fantasies that I couldn’t not write one inspired by ancient China. When I’ve got more of the story hashed out, I’m definitely going to talk about it more and start making graphics/gifs (even though that’s kinda lame lol fueling my own non-existent book fandom). But yeah, I just have to get through this one last month of school and then I can start actually dedicating the majority of my time to writing.

A scene where Kaneki's s/o (human) being terrified of his centipede form?? Also congrats on your 200 followers! :)

((thanks! currently we’re almost at 500 followers and I’m really happy C: ))

Kaneki was never meant to be seen like this, in this form dubbed “Centipede”, hunched over a dead ghoul and growling like some rabid dog. 

"Why did you follow me?" Kaneki asked, his voice distorted and low. 

"I…I’m…" his partner started, backing up with their hands up in a display of surrender. They were pale. Awfully pale. Almost as pale as Kaneki. 

"You shouldn’t be here," he started, and he noticed his significant other struggling to speak words but he wished they would say something anything other than what he feared they’d say most: "You’re a monster".  

"K-kan…eki…" they stuttered, and they stumbled over another dead body as they took a few steps backwards and shrieked.

"No, please no, this isn’t me I swear please don’t leave me I love you," Kaneki rambles, the string of words barely coherent.

"Kaneki, what are you? What is that?" they cry and Kaneki just wants to hold them, cradle them, tell them his story and explain everything in a soothing voice because he hates the way they’re looking at him with fear in those bright eyes.

"Please," he calls out to them, "please, I’m so sorry, just—"

They sway and stumble forwards, their legs giving out, and the white-haired boy dashes to them, grabbing them by the waist and holding them close.

"Kaneki, what is this? Hey, say something…" they murmur as they clutch onto his chest.

They feel dampness on their head, like raindrops were somehow falling from the roof, and they look up to see Kaneki, tears running down his face.

"You weren’t meant to see me like this."
