biased version

like even if you forget everything about history and whatever we know about what happened with the Reynolds affair, like, there’s this line of the musical:

“My husband’s doing me wrong, beating me, cheating me, mistreating me”

I don’t care if Maria Reynolds initiated the cheating or not tbh, I don’t fucking care if an abused woman cheats on her abuser, he threw the wedding vows out the window a long time ago if he treats her like that, even just from the things stated in the musical Maria is not the one to put the sole blame on as people just keep doing

Alrighty here is a (quite frankly awful) intro to the aihl v2! 

I deleted the first version as I made it at 2am in the morning and it was seriously bad (and long), So yeah if anyone has some feedback or updated information on the teams I don’t know much about just send me a message. 

I would also like to make shorter and waaaay less biased versions of this for each team so if you’d like to help out with those feel free to once again send me a message :)

1) During umfb&mha does it occur to Phichit that Viktor might actually be in love with Yuuri, from hearing Yuuri's version of events + seeing their interactions in person at competitions and social media posts about Viktor? Does he think Yuuri won't believe him, or would he tell Yuuri straight away if he had a strong feeling about it? 2) Did Phichit admire Viktor as the figure skating legend he was and is, did he look up to him as many others do? How does this change when Yuuri opens up to him?

Phichit doesn’t think that Viktor is in love with Yuuri as he only has Yuuri’s heavily biased version of events to work from and so his POV is skewed too. But he does have suspicions that Yuuri might be missing something or not telling the story completely accurately. As for if he’d tell Yuuri he’d do exactly what he did in chapter 13. As for whether he admired Viktor, he never hero worshipped him like Yuuri did but he did look up to him as a skater. When Yuuri opens up to him he hates Viktor on principal

la-princesse-incongrue replied to your post: look, i even listened to the original Artois and…

Yamin’s character sings Je suis un dieu and I love that man but his character is awful and that song is just loathesome in the French version. But I’ll fight for Mathieu’s version of Nous ne sommes though that shit transcended the entire rest of the show

wait but Yamin is the secret police guy, right? why does he think he’s god??? 

and i was talking about Maniaque, that one is sung by Peyrol too, right? i’ve just listened to Nous ne sommes again and idk okay i like both versions 

[TRANS] Excerpt from Yixing’s book - Yixing’s fight

translated by laymerence and elaysium.

Hopelessness

While I threw my entire body and heart into the life of a trainee, an accident happened, I fought, and the consequences were serious. Because of this fighting incident, I was sent back to my country. Without even having the chance to reflect on my initial determination to grasp every opportunity, I left Korea for the second time.

At that time the company had prepared various classes for us, dancing classes, vocal classes, language classes, everyday besides training there was more training. I would train till I was exhausted, when I returned to the apartment, without thinking about anything else I would fall asleep immediately, and sleep till the next day. I remember one morning when I woke up, my stomach was extremely hungry, when I saw a pot of rice on the table I ate all of it.

Who would have thought that because of eating this rice, I ended up in a fight! Now that I think about it, perhaps at that time everyone was very uptight, everyone’s heartstrings were wound together tightly (t/n: everyone was on edge). Sometimes due to one impatient sentence, as boys, all our emotions boiled over. While striking out, my movements were greater, causing the other party to be hurt. This incident, is considered a serious mistake on my part, and afterwards I was sent back home.

The company has its rules, everyone must follow them, and I must pay the price for my own actions, except to me at that time, this price I paid was really too great.

Now that I think back on this incident, I am still very regretful. The regret was not just towards the fact that I nearly personally ended my journey of music that I strove for with difficulty, but also because of what had resulted from me losing control of my emotions.

I immediately recalled, when I was very young, grandfather taught me what it was to be careful in both speech and actions, at that time I didn’t understand. So at this moment now, I have to pay the price for my youthfulness and impulsivity.

But, this is youth I suppose, during the days of blinding sunshine, it is precisely because there is such a price to be paid whilst growing up, that allowed me to understand more clearly, that dreams are not so easily realised. The more one experiences, the faster one will grow.


A note from the translators:

Originally we were going to wait till some of us have translated the whole book, but we decided to translate this part first because we’ve seen some false translations floating around that have caused a lot of confusion. A few things we’ve seen which we want to clarify:

1. “Yixing stole another trainee’s food.” There’s no mention of that. The words in the excerpt literally say “When I woke up, my stomach was extremely hungry, when I saw a pot of rice on the table I ate all of it.”

2. “Yixing beat up another trainee.” Also no mention of that. He says, because he ate the rice, he got into a fight. His movements were greater than the other person and it caused them to be hurt. There is no mention of who dealt the first blow.

3. “He did not regret beating up the other person.” He said nothing of that sort. He says the incident was “a serious mistake” on his part, and “the regret was not just towards the fact that I nearly personally ended my journey of music that I strove for with difficulty, but also because of what had resulted from me losing control of my emotions.”

True, we are neither Yixing nor the other party, so other than what we have translated we cannot say anything about what he felt at that time or feels right now. But, while we may be xingmis, we have added nothing nor omitted anything in our translation. We have reproduced his exact words to the best of our ability. If any other “translation” attempts to present a different version of things or colour the events differently, we’d honestly question the translator’s intention and credibility. You’re free to make your own inference and judgment if you want, but please don’t pass it off as fact based on his original writing.

it’s been a long time coming and i’m trying this a second time, but we need to talk about skye, daisy johnson, quake, and the inevitable backlash that i guess i should’ve seen coming but damn, i actually am kind of surprised by some of the stuff i’ve read. this may suck because i’m trying to get this out quick before i stall again. so. sorry.

awh man im so nervous right now. i have to do a speech in english so im doing it on the british empire and how come the crimes its committed are swept under the rug and ignored but i live in a rural area with a grand total of two POC in my class (im white myself) and already im being called a traitor and just hating on my country but its like my speech is about how we need to accept our history and understand the biased version we are taught and im just so goddamn nervous

just keep doing your thing and go for it👌🏼 it’s unfortunate but…expected. everyone likes a polished and glorious national narrative instead of dealing with their country’s demons huh. although that process gives people a much fuller and deeper appreciation of their history. we can’t understand the history of tea in britain in detail without drawing connections to the opium wars, the plantations in british india and the sugarcane plantations in the americas that ran on african slave labour. imagine trying to understand the evolution of the modern british political system without learning about all the times Shit Happened like the english civil war. it’d be incomplete, no?

my family being from a commonwealth country, i wish more people engaging in their knee jerk ‘ummm we gave the colonies railways and the parliamentary system’ would understand that yes empires throughout human history were often very powerful forces for catalysing socio-economic and cultural developments but almost always did so at a costly toll in human lives and cultural destruction. there’s no getting around that. i mean, that’s how it was when the romans first came to britain too. it is valuable that people appreciate this complexity instead of being defensive of what’s really a fictional, whitewashed narrative.

The Showers

Part 1

Every area in all parts of the world has those area-specific Urban Legends that just refuse to die. Whether the stories are about a haunted asylum on the outskirts of the city, a creature that lives in the nearby woods, or a ghost that haunts a lonely stretch of road outside of town, there is always a common thread within the tales; no one has ever been to these places, seen the creatures, or witnessed any hauntings with their own eyes.

There are members of every generation who will proclaim that they “know someone whose brother’s best friend’s sister went to that haunted house with thirteen floors that used real blood and snakes and spiders and is so scary that no one has ever made it all the way through.” Those same people will swear by these stories without ever being able to provide a shred of evidence or a name of someone who could provide proof of the claims simply because “everyone around here knows that it’s a true story”. The storytellers eventually pass the tales onto their children, who modify them just enough to keep up with changing times, and the cycle continues.

I’m as skeptical as anyone when it comes to these stories, seeing as I was like a junkie when I was younger, constantly searching for more terrifying stories about whatever area of the country I was living in at the time. I made up and spread stories about haunted pizza parlors in New York, my “cousin’s” encounter with the Jersey Devil, or how my “grandfather” encountered a feral, human-like demon creature in the woods of Colorado. I even broke the one rule with these stories by putting myself in them; this took guts, in hindsight, because I had to make sure that I always told them the same way. Surprisingly, no one ever called my bluff.

I like to think that I have had some wonderful contributions to various urban legends around the Midwest and northeastern states; I moved around a lot. There was always a surge of joy whenever I would wander the halls at school and hear one of my classmates retelling my stories to another one of their friends, adding little bits here and there like a massive game of telephone. I knew, of course, that the stories were complete fiction, but I stood my ground whenever someone asked me about them; I would even manage to act a little bit, speaking with a shaky voice or looking scared when I would recount a situation that I supposedly experienced myself.
