This character is a combination of 刂 sword/cut and 畐 a Chinese-only character meaning full. Here 畐 is a phonetic element that lends an idea of “wide open” from its original meaning of wide-lipped jar. Together with 刂 it gives “cut wide open/split.” This led to the idea of “duplicating,” which by association further led to “substituting,” giving way to the present meanings.
I feel like I have to specifically state to each person who follows my RP blog that it is a secondary blog, not a main blog. Thanks to this feeling, I worry about what the followers think when I, not the muse, follow them and reblog posts from them as said muse because I’m not sure if they know or if I have to explain it to them.
This blog is a real mix of different things, including studyblr things. So I’ve started a secondary bog (studyatsunset.tumblr.com) to be just for my studying. I’ll keep this blog but I’m not sure how often I’ll update it, so do follow my secondary blog as well!
Some folks reject hierarchical ‘primary’ and 'secondary’ labels on principle. Rejecting these labels is a lot easier, though, than actually rejecting the whole model of interaction that they represent.
