Masterpost: Yana Toboso’s blog/twitter post translations
People who visit my blog on PC probably know that there’s already amasterpost of all my past blog/twitter post translations, but the majority of people seems to use the mobile version of tumblr and therefore have no access to it (?), so here’s a masterpost that is hopefully accessible to everyone! Also, I’d appreciate it if you could check this masterpost *first* before asking me “Has Yana ever talked about XX on her blog?” xD
Disclaimer: I’m not a professional translator but just a
normal Japanese Kuro fan with intermediate English skills, and I
primarily translate all these Kuro related posts for myself, namely to
improve my English! All posts marked with * are proofread by my
precious, lovely friend minacchin though (thank you for your help<3), so you can expect a flawless English translation :)
Tips:If you don’t know where to start reading, here are some tips. The posts in bold are the ones that got over 1000 notes. And the ones in italic are my personal faves that I found funny/interesting and definitely recommend you to read! :)
And finally, thank you to all those people who read and liked my translations and sent me lovely, encouraging messages in the past 2.5 years! ♡♡
whilst I’ve been away, i met this family and we were in the pool and i have cap’s shield tattoo’d on my arm, which became a conversation starter to talk about marvel. and they’re not huge marvel fans like, they’ve seen the films but they’re not into it the way we’re all into it.
anyway, we were talking about cap and the avengers movies and one of the daughters goes “the first avengers film was good, the second one i didn’t really get what was happening it was a bit of a mess, and the third one the whole thing seemed dumb I won’t lie” - now as we all know there isn’t actually an official 3rd Avengers film as of yet, but my mum chimed in with “Yeah we went to see that third one for B’s birthday last year, there was too much going on for me”
Civil War. They were talking about Civil War. Casual moviegoers with no vested interest in the MCU deadass have spent the last year thinking it was Avengers: Civil War.
I know everyone is excited about Kit and Ty “getting it on” in TWP and a cave and every book and whatever– but can we please stop to consider that they’re still kids at this point? We don’t have any other image different than that one of them being 15. People are starting to sexualize their whole relationship in a moment when they still haven’t even had their first kiss or figured out their feelings for each other.
And I know you mean it as in when TWP comes out but it’s kind of sad and weird and wrong to see people sexualizing two 15 year olds’ relationship.
Raven Reyes: Her boyfriend was KILLED- perfectly fine a couple episodes later
Clarke Griffen: KILLS the man she loves, KILLS more than a thousand people (I think 1500 people minus the Mount men cause she did have a break down *I mean she did kill children*) Gets her girlfriend KILLED- doesn’t disconnect from the world (ok the end of season 4 wasn’t optional for her), Is still a leader for her people.
Octavia: Her boyfriend gets KILLED right in front of her- now shes heda of 1200 people(though she does become an assassin but that’s like a normal thing on the hundred)

Iran and Afghanistan are Persian countries, not Arab. Yes some Iranian or Afghan people speak Arabic, but this doesn’t make them Arab unless they come from an Arab country. Not every country in West Asia/North Africa that you hear about on the news is a Middle Eastern country. Arabs, Kurds, Turks, and Persians are all different ethnic groups in the Middle East. The Middle East may or may not include other countries that aren’t shown in that particular map depending on who you ask because it’s a geographic term. Arab refers to countries that are a part of the Arab League, which is defined politically as well as culturally and linguistically, so only certain countries are members.
