tips for writing bilingual characters
  • there are different types of bilinguals
    • the All Around: speaks, reads, and writes both languages pretty well
    • the Conversational: one language is stronger than the other; can speak the other language a lot better than they read/write it (a lot of kids of immigrants are this type)
    • the High Schooler: understands what’s being said to them in the other language, can’t really speak it
  • don’t have your characters randomly drop words from their other language mid-sentence around people who don’t speak it lol
    • languages are a mindset thing. like personally if i’m around english-speakers, i’m speaking english and i don’t really switch to my other language (which is portuguese)
    • so like if you’re writing a bilingual character who speaks spanish and have them say something like “hey chad let’s go to the biblioteca” to an english speaker i’ll probably spend 5 minutes laughing and then close your story lmao
  • exception: the character is speaking in their weaker language and forgot a word (”where are the…? uh… llaves…. keys! keys, where are they?”)
  • otherwise really the only time your character should be randomly switching languages mid-sentence is if they’re talking to another bilingual
  • like i don’t speak spanish but i’ve legit never heard a spanish speaker say “ay dios mio” to gringos lmao
  • conversations between two bilingual people can take a few different forms:
    • Pick One: they pick one language and kinda stick with it for the whole conversation (a conversation i might have with my portuguese-speaking mom: ”you okay?” “yeah, i’m good. how’re you?” “i’m fine, but your dad-”)
    • Back-and-Forth: someone says something in one language, the other person replies in the other (”tudo bem?” “yeah, i’m good. how’re you?” “tou bem, mas o seu pai-”)
    • Combo: they speak a combo of the two languages, a popular example being spanglish, though basically every bilingual has their own combo language (”tudo bem?” “sim, tou bem. how’re you?” “i’m fine, mas o seu pai-”)
  • when in doubt: just ask a bilingual to look at your stuff and tell you if anything sounds weird

So im eating cheetos in bed (like every normal person, gotta get my cheeto fix), and currently its 11 at night. Its as dark as my sense of humor and i can barely see. Im sitting under my covers and i didnt wanna touch anything since i have a large amount of cheeto dust on my fingers and that shit spreads like the plague when it touches any surface. So i put my hand out of the covers and hold it above the stuff on my bed so it doesnt get dirty. Suddenly i felt something nibbling and licking my fingers. Naturally i flip out and flail my arm to get rid of the cheeto-craving creature. It flips out and jumps directly on my face that is hidden under the blanket. I take the blanket off my head and look for the animal and see wide reflective floating eyes by the door. I scream “ay dios mio” at the top of my lungs, and then i hear a loud meow. At that moment i remember that 1.) I have a black cat
And 2.) I just woke up my parents
My dad opens my door and i have to explain why im covered in cheeto dust on tumblr on a school night, and when he heard my story he just. Left.
And thats my thrilling tale for the internet that will get no notes and will be on my blog forever.

Cassian and Reader headcanon with pilot Reader

This was fun to write! Hope you like it!!! :)


Cassian x Pilot!Reader Headcanon

-As a former pod racer, you fly so recklessly that not many rebels want to fly with you

-The ones that braved your flying were held in high regard for their courage

-Kay once said that there was a 70% probability of death when flying with you, which you took as a compliment

-Even though you had flown Kay on many missions, it took you a long time to meet Cassian (even though he had heard enough about you from Kay’s complaining)

- When you finally meet Cassian you become best friends quickly and even though he’s initially scared of your flying “AY DIOS MIO WOMAN YOU JUST HIT THE SIDE OF THE BUILDING” he starts to appreciate it when you’re able to get him out of tight situations very fast

-You and Cassian began to sign up for the same missions (to the relief of all the other rebels who didn’t have to deal with your flying anymore and the annoyance of Kay who would have to deal it)

-As you and Cassian bonded during the long flights on missions you let it slip that you were a former pod racer and somehow Cassian convinced you to teach him

-Cassian was horrible at pod racing

-The first time (and every time after that) he got on a pod he was sitting behind you (yes his arms were totally around your waist and you may have flown insanely fast just so he had to hold on tighter)

-After years of working together, you knew each other well enough to communicate with just a look

-Looks turned into longing glances and normal touches turned into warm hugs and gentle forehead kisses

-When things got back you reverted to how you used to handle yourself and hid from the world like when you broke your hand during a mission and couldn’t fly for Cassian anymore you locked yourself up in your room and become detached from him and your fellow rebels

-Cassian and Kay had to continue going on missions and you had to watch them leave without you knowing that their new pilots didn’t understand him like you did

-Cassian didn’t truly understand what you were going through until he came back from a mission to find you gone with another rebel on a different mission

-It was then that he realized how important you had become to him

-Meanwhile, you were away on a mission with a stranger rebel and just wanted to get back home and hug Cassian

-And that is exactly what you did when you got back

-Cassian was waiting nervously in the hangar for you to return not having talked to you in weeks

-Apologies whispered in each other’s ears as you hugged for the first time after realizing how much you loved each other

-And that love would last forever through mission after mission

-Now you sit ready to fly your ship out with the crew of Rogue One and other rebel volunteers on board

-Your heart is beating fast and as you begin to lift off from Yavin 4 ready to go to Scarif, Cassian reaches over and grabs your hand and you know everything is going to be okay

Your breaks were spent at Usnavi’s bodega, where you could escape the summer heat and accompany Sonny in his daily taunts that were directed to his older cousin.

Sonny was usually rather late, but when he wasn’t anywhere in sight during your lunch break, you know he must have had a particularly busy night.

Usnavi looked utterly exhausted behind the bodega counter after dealing with the morning rush alone. 

“You look like you could use a drink.” You teased, leaning your elbows on the counter, glancing around at the setup you had familiarized yourself with for years.

“Don’t tempt me. It’s only 12.” He groaned, mimicking your stance, “Sonny met a girl in a red dress at a club last night.”

“His weakness.” You giggled, which earned a bright grin from Usnavi. Leave it to you to put him in a fantastic mood, “Sucks. I only hang out here for his company.”

“Ouch.” He hissed, clutching his heart, “Rough day.”

“I guess I can settle for you, though. Even if you are an idiot sometimes.” He had removed his hat and placed it on the counter. Seizing the opportunity, you snatched it and placed it on your head before he had time to protest. Not that he would protest seeing you in his clothes.

“I may be an idiot, but I’m your idiot.” He grinned for a split second before realizing what he said, “I mean- you know? Ay dios mio, I am an idiot.” You watched for a moment as he mumbled profanities to himself, “Benny said I didn’t have any moves, I didn’t think he was actually ri-”

You grabbed the collar of his shirt with a fist, pulling him close enough to feel his hesitant breath on your face. With a singular bout of courage, he closed the gap, running his hands down your bare arms. 

He carefully pulled back from you, close enough for you to count each of his eyelashes. His mopey grin had you giggling into his shoulder, the sudden movement knocking his hat off your head.

“Yeah,” You sigh, “My idiot.”
