bilingual love

Listen I know we all love bilingual Lance and boy oh boy guess who’s here with some bilingual headcanons!!

•Lance used to speak fluent spanish as a child, but when he started going to public school, he just … Lost that ability.
•Lance can understand some words and phrases in spanish but doesn’t really know how to form sentences. (he knows all the cursewords and tries to use them as much as he can bc that’s Cool™)
•He can understand enough words to get the gist of what people are saying.
•Lance started to feel kind of detatched from his family since he couldn’t speak spanish and basically everyone else (save for the younger kids) could.
•His family doesn’t put any effort into teaching him spanish bc they want him to be more American than Hispanic (a sad truth that I unfortunately experienced)
•Lance starts to take spanish classes seriously when he gets to high school. He slowly learns how to form proper sentences, and he’s at the top of his class bc he wants to connect with his family language-wise. He tries hard, and grasps the language without any help from his fluent-spanish-speaking parents.
•One time, he had to do a project in spanish class, but he didn’t know how to form the sentence he wanted. So, he goes to his parents for help.
•Big mistake.
•His parents are from different regions of south america, so they speak different forms of spanish. Whatever he’s learning at school is. Not. The same.
•He had to go back and forth from his dad to his mom for one goddamn question like holy crow.
•"No, no! Your father is wrong! I speak PROPER spanish!“
-That was an actual quote from my mother it’s legit.
•His father ends up being right. At least in terms of School Spanish.
•Lance’s teacher ended up taking points away anyway bc she knew he wasn’t capable of speaking in such eloquent, complex spanish.
•He once went over his vocab list with his fam since he forgot his spanish dictionary at school. Another mistake. Don’t ask your different-spanish-speaking parents for translations when they’re in the same room.
•They spent more time arguing about the translation than actually translating.
•Mom: “Aficion? I’ve never heard that word in my life! It doesn’t exist!”
•"It means ceiling fan, mom.“
•M: “Oh! Then you mean ‘hincha’!”
•Dad: “Hincha?! Are you trying to teach our son slang?!”
•"Wait, that’s slang?!“
•"Well, ya-”
•D: “Aficion es the tiki tiki.”
•M: “No. La tiki tiki es la hincha!”
•They slowly seep into full spanish and Lance is watching on in amusement.
•He ends up texting his aunt about the right answer, and she tells him that it’s aficion.
•Mom loses the argument.
•He has a presentation in class for an oral test. He knows he has a great accent and great understanding of spanish, but when he goes up to speak, he can’t say anything.
•Everything comes out slow and stuttered, but he still gets an A+ bc his pronunciation is on point.
•There’s a non-hispanic/latinx kid in his class. They get straight A’s and speak faster than Lance. Lance is jealous of them. It’s not fair that a person who isn’t surrounded by latin culture can speak it so well, while he can’t.
•They’re the top 2 in the class, but Lance is always second. He’s always second in everything.
•Eventually, Lance learns enough Spanish to understand full sentences. He gets a giddiness in his chest when he can understand EXACTLY what is being said in spanish. He loves it.
•Even when his parents are scolding him in spanish, he tries his best not to smile bc he UNDERSTANDS!! •He tries to get his parents/family to communicate with him in Spanish more bc he’s so proud that he can FINALLY understand them. He feels connected to them again, and loves the feeling of embracing his heritage at last.
•Then … His family asks hin why he never talks back in spanish.
•Lance is still shy and insecure about his spanish, bc sometimes he makes mistakes. And sometimes, fluent speakers are not the nicest when it comes to that. He’s afraid they’ll make fun of him bc he’s still learning.
•He goes to a restaurant that has people who only speak spanish in it. He then has to order from the menu.
•He asks for a soda. When the waitress leaves, his entire family is beaming at him. He asks why.
•They gush about his perfect pronunciation and format. They’re proud of him. They had no idea he knew it so well.
•Lance is almost brought to tears bc his family is just as proud of him as he is - especially on something so important to him.
•He talks and laughs with his family at dinner again after that.
•When he gets in space, he tries to keep himself knowledgeable in spanish. He doesn’t want to forget again.
•He listens to old spanish radio shows and songs all of the time. He listens to sports, no matter which kind, in spanish.
•He tries to teach the other paladins Spanish. He grins when they start cussing under their breath in spanish. Sometimes, the paladins will just slip into it and they’ll forget that they’re speaking another language bc it’s so second-nature to them.
•But Lance notices, and it feels a little more like home.

RANT ABOUT YURI ON ICE EPISODE 8/ QUEJAS RESPECTO AL EPISODIO 8 DE YURI ON ICE

ENGLISH VERSION

TIME FOR RANT:

FIRST OF ALL, I’M VERY DISSAPOINTED WITH ALL THE YURI!!! ON ICE FANDOM, I KNOW THE LAST EPISODE (7 EPISODE) WAS A HUUUUGE AND EXCITING ROLLERCOASTER OF EMOTIONS (THE GLASS HEART THING AND THE KISS) BUT ALMOST EVERYONE AREN’T GIVING THE CREDIT TO THE CREATORS IN THE NEW EPISODE (EPISODE 8). PERHAPS YOU DON’T SEE THE HUGE STEP THAT EVERY CHARACTER THAT WE KNEW SINCE EPISODE 1, ONE OF THIS CHARACTES IS YURIO, HE’S SHOWING HIS “SOFT” SIDE TO ALL OF US, GETTING US TO KNOW HOW IMPORTANT IS HIS GRANDPA FOR HIM AND HOW IS IMPORTANT TO TRY TO BE THE BEST SKATER FOR HIM AND HIS FAMILY (BUT MOSTLY FOR HIS GRANDPA), THEN WE HAVE YUURI AND VIKTOR, WHO ARE GETTING CLOSER, MORE INTIMATE (NOT NECESARILY THEY HAVE TO KISS AND BEEN SHOW IN THE EPISODE TO NOTICE THIS CHANGE IN THE ATMOSPHERE OF THEIR COUPLE DYNAMIC) ONE OF THE SCENES WHEN VIKTOR IS TYING THE SKATES OF YUURI, THE “KISS AND CRY” KISS OF THE SKATE AND ONE OF THE BIGGEST SAMPLE OF LOVE IS WHEN YUURI TELLS VIKTOR TO GO TO JAPAN TO TAKE CARE AND BE WITH MAKKACHIN, HE KNOWS (YUURI) THE IMPOTENCE OF NOT BEING CLOSE TO HIS DOG WHEN HE NEEDED, AND THE BRAVESNESS ABOUT BEING IN THE COMPETINTION BY HIMSELF, ALSO VIKTOR TAKING CARE OF HIM, ASKING YAKOV TO WATCH YUURI IF HE GOES TO JAPAN. WE DON’T NECESSARILY HAVE TO HAVE FAN SERVICES (WE GOT A LITTLE BIT WITH JJ FLASHBACKS) TO BE INTERESTED IN THE SERIES.

FINALLY I HOPE EVERYONE COULD NOTICE THE IMPROVEMENT OF THE CHARACTERS IN THIS EPISODE, I THINK IT WAS A BEATIFUL EPISODE, IMPORTANT AND DIFFERENT.

PEACE OUT!

Je t'aime. Aujourd'hui. Ce  soir. Demain. Pour toujours. Si je vivais mille ans, je t'appartiendrais pour tous. Si je vivais mille vies, je te ferais mienne dans chacune d'elles.

I love you. Today. Tonight. Tomorrow. Forever. If I were to live a thousand years, I would belong to you for all of them. If I were to live a thousand lives, I would want to make you mine in each one. 

from The Retribution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

Expect a lot of Trails of Apollo stuff because this book honestly makes me so happy. Rick Riordan is honestly so amazing. Before ToA i’ve never seen a gay couple in a book before. I’ve never even seen an openly gay character before his books. Read Rick Riordan’s books please. They’re all so great and he talks a lot about different problems in his books like racism and teen homelessness. Need something to do? Read the Percy Jackson series, read Heroes of Olympus, Read Trials of Apollo, Read Magnus Chase, Read the Kane Chronicles. They’re worth your time, I promise.

I read that keiths name spelled in jpnese is キース which looks similar to キス (kiss) so ofc well end up here

p.s. i love bilingual couples 

honestly i love being able to speak another language like during spring break i met this lovely couple that spoke french and we sat on the beach talking about being french-speaking black people and all the nonsense that comes with it and it was so refreshing and then i was in the car with my best friend and her dad when my mom called and my mom doesn’t like talking on the phone in english when there are people around she doesn’t know (my best friend’s dad) so we were speaking in french and my best friend’s dad was so startled lmao (though idk why cause he speaks spanish fluently.. idk maybe because it was french) but it’s just so nice to be able to connect with people because of the language you share and to also be able to block some people out and stay private idk man i just love being bilingual 😌

anonymous asked:

this blog is great omg uh maybe english and spanish bilingual s/o shenanigans with genji hanzo reaper and mccree if you could? thanks in advance!

I love bilingual shit it’s hilarious.

Overwatch

Genji and Hanzo would NOT understand a single word of Spanish. If you got angry and started yelling that around them, Genji would just be sweating like “what”. Hanzo would jsut… look around awkwardly until he can catch a word he understands, and then either nod or shake his head accordingly. He is a simple man he doesn’t know what to do.

McCree would have a bit more understanding of your language- not by much, but enough to laugh when you get into a rant. He doesn’t know what, but seeing you go off in a language he can’t understand too well makes him Crack Up.

Reaper would probably talk exclusively in spanish, after he finds out. If you were angry and yelling at someone, he’d probably join in. Almost no one hears you speak english to each other, and everyone is slightly uncomfortable when it sounds a little dirty.
