alex translates

THANK OF WHEN THIS GETS TRANSLATED THOUGH

PEOPLE AND CULTURES ALL AROUND THE WORLD WILL GET TO READ ABOUT A CANON, GENDERQUEER AND EXPLICITLY TRANSGENDER CHARACTER AS PART OF A LARGER NARRATIVE

AND THERE’S NOT EVEN ANY WAY TO GET AROUND OR CENSOR IT BECAUSE IT’S ALL WRITTEN RIGHT THERE IN THE TEXT

WHAT I’M TRYING TO SAY IS THAT RICK BUILT AN AMAZING PLATFORM OUT OF THE SUCCESS OF HIS NOVELS AND HE IS FREAKING USING IT WELL

headcanon time

so everyone thinks that kara’s this sweet kid who never uses language stronger than ‘hell’ and ‘goddamn’, but when she’s really frustrated she sometimes goes off in kryptonese and no one knows what she’s saying, until one day clark and astra are there, and alex asks them to translate, and clark just goes bright red and refuses because, honestly, it’s filthy and some of the anatomy involved doesn’t really translate, and astra asks him why he’s looking at her, because she didn’t teach kara how to say that (even though she totally did)

drop kink: very true. I can see the way that it oversteps the bounds of comforts and the ways things should be NEW CONCEPT: Alex saying I love you to Laf in French and i love you in Spanish to john and when they say it too each other Alex translates and everything is very fluff and sweet and nice ☺️

THIS IS A MUCH BETTER USE OF THIS CONCEPT

I love thiS!

Polnareff: It makes me happy to think that Avdol and Iggy might come back. And I never thought we’d all get to travel together again…

Jotaro: Yare yare da ze… 


Is that a smile on your face, Jotaro? Are you happy to see Kakyoin back, aren’t you!? I know your “yare yare daze” can mean a lot of things right~! 

*fangirls*

…I’m sorry I just HAD to do this ;3


(Thanks to Alex for the great translation!)

anonymous asked:

DROP link anon, back again. Okay so Laf and John get in a fight. They only speak in French and Spanish respectively and Alex has too translate for both of them. Alex gets way to over whelmed and starts to spiral downward a bit and Laf and John immediately stop fighting and take care of him. Eh?

Oh no why are they fighting? 

:(

anonymous asked:

DROP KINK BACK AT IT AGAIN: So they are fighting over something super stupid and the fight escalates because it's been a long week and Laf knows that John hates when he talks French so he stars shouting in French and Alex absent mindedly translates because he's working on something and then John responds in Spanish and Alex translates again and it goes back and forth but then Alex gets panicky and it's been such a long week so he breaks down and the boys come together to take care of him

Hmmm

I actually think this is kind of…not fighting fair? 

I am a H U G E proponent of clear communication and I don’t like the idea of Lafayette using something (like speaking French) that John doesn’t like when they are angry.

Sadly, I do not think I can write this.

•She and Alex have known each other since second grade. They’ve been friends ever since.
•She and Mizuko never got along, despite Alex being able to translate for them. They never agreed with each other, and rarely ever make an effort to.
•She wants to be in a band, but doesn’t have the time right now.
•She and RJ used to date.
•She is actually okay with her step-mom because her biological mom sucked.

Official Scans Vs Fan Subs

So socialdegenerate​ and I went through Viz Media’s Volumes Two, Three and Six of Gangsta. and found some interesting differences in translation. Nothing major because the sub groups do such a top job it’s just tiny, little things that get lost in translation. My favorite is Chad’s observations on Nicolas’ feelings on Alex (♥ω♥ ) ~♪

OS = Official Scans

S = Fan Scans
