all of these names make so much sense though

Choi Twins’ names analysis

after thinking about this for a while, i came to this conclusion: 

you know how given names in korean have two ways to be written: hangul && hanja. hanja is not used often but as far as i know it is necessary for some documents. in korea there is this tradition in which they hold a character for generations, normally are the grandparents who choose it ( like the twins: 새영 && 새란. 새 being the character of the family )

in normal hangul: 

새 (sae): bird
란 (ran): to be called 
영 (yeong/young): forever, eternity

that means that the name for the twins could be bird called && bird of eternity. makes sense, but not that much, that is when hanja acts. the meaning of the name is given through the hanja though there are DIFFERENT forms to write those characters. there are a lot so in order to not write them all i chose the ones that fit with their personalities. somewhere i read that there is also a belief that the meaning of your name will mark your future. i chose these ones:

勢 (새)= power, force, tendency 
亂 (란)= disoderly, chaotic
英 (영)=  flower, outstanding, petal, brave, hero

so in short:

새영 (saeyoung/勢英): powerful hero
새란 (saeran/勢亂): powerful chaos

i’m NOT completely sure since i’m still learning but this could be the meaning of their names. but it makes sense considering their roles in the story.

For this post, I’ll be using fuku-shuu translations of chapter 83. 

Can I just say that I love the little flashback to their first meeting? It was perfect to me and so much more.

I say perfect because Isayama wrote that encounter in the likes of what I always envisioned. For one of my fic I did a flashback for Eremin meeting and all I could think of was Eren defending Armin against bullies, before asking his name and initiating their friendship. In a way, this chapter got a similar moment which makes me very happy. It was also adorable to boot!

But unlike what I imagined though, there were differences. I always saw Eren protecting Armin from bullies, based on how Eren even as a child seemed driven by his own sense of right and wrong and couldn’t stand injustice. Yet that’s not how they started and Eren didn’t protect Armin from his bullies. Instead it sounds more like he had been witnessing the situation for a while without interfering, while he waited for Armin to fight back against his bullies. When it never happened it made him curious enough that he directly asked Armin. 

Why didn’t you fight back?
They think you’re a loser because you don’t.
You’re really fine with being bullied all the time? x

Eren is curious about Armin’s actions and become interested in him after he hear his answer: 

I haven’t lost… Because I…didn’t run away. x

Armin’s answer left such a big impression on Eren that he asked him his name. Unlike what we saw and assume before, their friendship doesn’t start because Eren protects Armin but rather because those events leads to him becoming interested or intrigued by Armin as a person. He becomes Eren’s very first friend. 

I love this a lot because we’re shown here that it’s Armin himself who attracts Eren’s interest. It goes perfectly well with what happens in chapter 73, where Eren admit that all the talk about going to the sea doesn’t affect him as much as Armin himself does. The look in his eyes. 

Be it with their first meeting or seeing the world outside, Armin leaves a big impression on Eren, always. And while he’s admitted that thinking back to that moment with Armin and his book gives him courage, this chapter also made me realize that Armin may have inspired him elsewhere. 

Eren never leaving the fight even when he’s not losing. Armin’s attitude from that time was that as long as you don’t leave and run, you haven’t lost the fight yet and that immediately caught Eren’s attention back then. It makes it very likely to me that Armin’s philosophy may have affected Eren’s outlook on his battles in general after that. 

Something else that made the flashback even more cute is how Eren went from not bothering to jump to Armin’s help and being unaffected to basically getting so mad and wanting to defend Armin at all costs, even comfort him.

Or even Armin’s flashback about Mikasa and Eren defending him against the bullies. 

Like Eren legit goes from “I don’t really care if you get hurt, save yourself” to “nobody lays a finger on you, I’ll protect you” with Armin. And I just love this way too much. 

Like I love how Isayama did the flashback because you can clearly see how Armin was able to affect Eren from the get go but also how Eren changed after that, same with their relationship. The shipper in me is really happy with this, even if the rest of the chapter hurt like hell. 

What’s in a (Tokyo Ghoul character’s) name? PT.2

Seeing as many people seemed to like PT.1, I have returned with a second batch of uncovered hidden meanings in Tokyo Ghoul character’s names. Also, I’ve been particularly busy lately, so this is a quick thing I can do to make you all happy (it’s a little shorter this time around though). I’ll be unpacking the names of some characters that have recently been in chapters to keep things relevant. Let’s begin!

Amon Koutarou - 亜門 鋼太朗
亜 - This one doesn’t make too much sense (to me at least), but when read as “a” in “Amon”, it is used to indicate low oxidation state (like adding sub-, -ous or –ite to elements in English to achieve the same effect).
門 - When read as the “mon” in “Amon”, it may mean gate, branch of learning based on the teachings of a single master or division.
鋼 - Means “steel”.
太 - When read as “ta”, it is used in words such as sun, solar, drum and wife.
朗 - May mean reading aloud/recitation, good news, bright/clear/cheerful, fair/fine/serene.

Arima Kishou  - 有馬 貴将
有 - May mean possess, have, exist, happen, occur or approx.
馬 - May mean horse/promoted bishop when read as “ma” from “Arima” in words.
貴 - When read as “ki” from “Kishou”, this kanji may be used as an honourific/familiar suffix. It can also mean precious/valuable.
将 - When read as “shou”, this kanji may represent a commander/general/leader.

Kirishima Ayato -霧嶋 絢都
霧 - When read as “kiri”, this can be read as “fog”, “mist” or “spray”
嶋 - Can be “island”, “territory” (for illegal gangs, prostitutes, etc.) or “turf”.
絢 - Means gorgeous, brilliant, dazzling, gaudy, flowery (speech) or colourful pattern/brilliant fabric design.
都 - When read as “to” in “Ayato”, it means metropolitan/municipal.

Fueguchi Hinami -笛口 雛実
笛 - When read as “fue” in “Fueguchi”, this kanji may mean flute, fife, pipe, recorder, shakuhachi, clarinet or whistle.
口 - Means mouth.
- May mean young bird, chick, hina doll, doll displayed during the Girls’ Festival, green, immature or juvenile.
実 - When read as “mi”, this kanji may mean fruit, nut, seed, (in broth) pieces of meat, vegetable, content or substance.

Yomo Renji -四方 蓮示
四 - Means the number four.
方 - May mean direction, person or alternative.
蓮 - Means lotus (the lotus flower).
示 - May mean show, indicate, point out, express or display.

I’ll write a separate third piece for the past and present Quinx soon, so watch out for that if you’re interested. If you have anything to add, want to ask a question or just talk to me about anything Tokyo Ghoul/:re related, feel free to do so any time.

Thanks for reading!

alright so i know nursey has already filled the writer™ role but what if jack has a journal too

maybe after the overdose his therapist tells him to take up writing. hands him a blank composition notebook and says that if he can’t talk to anyone, maybe he can try writing things down instead. he takes it and throws it under his bed, where it collects dust for a few weeks… until things get bad again. it’s the middle of the night and his hands are shaking. there’s a bottle in the bathroom calling his name. so he reaches for the notebook and a pen, and spends an hour just scribbling into the book. when he reads it the next morning it doesn’t make much sense, all scribbles and shorthand and even some drawings in the margins, but it doesn’t matter. it’s better than doing something destructive.

he keeps doing it, surprisingly. it helps. sometimes, though he won’t admit it, he even takes it out when he’s just bored, writes down a few rambling lines. he forgets about it after a good few months at samwell, leaves it in his nightstand anyway, just in case. and then bittle arrives.

bittle, who makes him want to write paragraphs and sonnets and poems, for god’s sake. the first time bitty looks him in the eye, his hand twitches. he ends up writing down stray lines about bitty almost every day-casual observations, funny quotes. eventually they manifest themselves into real lines and stanzas, twisting and rambling and clumsy, but jack likes them. whatever this feeling he has for bitty is, it’s clumsy, too. jack was never a bad english student, but he genuinely enjoys writing about bitty. like his therapist said: if he can’t say it out loud, write it down.

he breaks, eventually, texts nursey: what does it mean if someone makes you want to write poems about them with no context
bro nursey replies almost immediately. that means u got it bad

a few minutes later: you should show him sometime comes through, and jack thinks, “him.” maybe he’s not as subtle as he’d like to be, though he thinks that maybe this situation is particularly familiar to nursey, too.

They call me ‘the scientist’. Well, alright by me, at least it’s gender neutral. And, condescending or not, they are right. I AM a scientist. Obsessed with time and the changes of elements while time passes. I sometimes invent nice futuristic things too, but mostly I just analyse all kinds of materials.

The name’s Nill Fluorescent. I come from a long line of raw white berries, so long that the genetics glitched out at some point and I was gifted with a thing called chameleon syndrome, meaning I can change colors - not the whole me though. Just a splotch of skin on my face and one of my eyes. Special, I know. But just wait, it gets much more special, because I’m going to tell you my story. It might not be the nicest one, and it will definitely not make sense. Who am I kidding! I would have been totally okay with it being half as crazy. But it’s how it is, and I wouldn’t want to change anything now. Not again.

anonymous asked:

"I swear if someone had to win my heart they should buy me a star from outer space and name it after me. I’m not joking I think it’s even more romantic than walking on the beach with the sun creeping down by the horizon. Though it can’t be quite expensive.” Chapter 34 LUKE IS GONNA BUY Y/N A STAR ALSO RELEATES TO THE OUTERSPACE/CARRY ON REFERENCE IN THE LAST CHATPER???

After all, part 50 is also Y/N’s birthday so that would make sooooo much sense if Luke actually did that for her! ;) SOOO YEEEES THAT COULD BE A POSSIBILITY GREAT SPOTTED ANON IT ALL WOULD FIT WITH THE LAST CHAPTER TOO!
