School Grade: 4th (9 years old)

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.
