blonde sandwich

Writing my first eruri...

I am spanish speaker so I started in spanish but in the end I chose English, I shall check grammar and stuff but hopefully it’s going fine.

Black tea

.–I would call it love–. His steps stopped before the door of the Survey corps’s capitain. “I am glad, I am really happy we both share the feeling”–. He listened before the door was opened.

–Ey, need any help?—said Mike with a relaxed expression. The soldier went inside the office without pronouncing any word, he left que tray and teapot, serve two cups of tea and place before the blond man some sandwiches; perplexed blue eyes on him. Levi took one of the tea cups for himself and chose to sit in the more distant couch available there.

–Mike–, the capitain called—you can have this cup of tea, you have got a hard day–. No word was pronounced by Levi, he took a sip of his own tea, tasteless.–That kind of thing is not for me, so fancy–, gazing to Levi–: I am amazed you actually like it.

–What? Is it to unfitting for me, a rat from the Underground?—glaring back at Mike, who simply smiled.

–I am simply saying you don’t look like it, there’s nothing wrong with you liking tea, you’re special–. His smile too brightful, unusual—Erwin enjoys it also, very much actually–. Levi ignored him again, as if trying to get distracted by whatever else.—However, Erwin, is that meat? Why are you eating meat? Isn’t it racionalized?—Levi newly glared, damn fucker.

–Help youself if you wish Mike–. was everything Erwin said before keeping on with his job, tons of papers Keith had given him with a pat on his shoulder and saying he was being helpful. “Helpful”, bullshit. “Are you ok with it? Meat is costly, I mean it’s not a luxury but if this was sent by a patron of you may be I should not”–. Serve yourself, it’s fine. Levi, why are you here? I am assuming you have finished all your dury and shores, right?—no answering he got—I am just questioning because it would be unfourtunate you get a reprimand otherwise. Commander Keith was very serious about you getting discipline.

–He can go and fuck himself–, said while seeing Mike eats what he has prepared for Erwin himself—Not my problem if his soldiers are so useless they cannot finish their own shores, however, I did trained, groomed my horse, helped in the damn kitchen and washed my part of your disgusting clothes which I don’t get why the hell we must wash since all of you damn assholes have hands–. Took another sip of his tea—My job is done for today hence, leave me alone.

–Are you serious? Are you washing clothes?—Mike mocked at him—isn’t that something just newbies do? You’ve already go out with us, you’re supposed to be graduated from that already. Might be commander Keith just want you do what everyone of here did once, and since you arrived without the ´proper training´ thing… or might be he despises you?

–Ja, well, that would be mutual.


So far that’s what I translated, hope my narrative in English is not so bad, I have written fanfics for more than 10 years and I am probably known good enough in inuyasha’s fandom but since I have hardly ever written in English, this is new XD, anyway, let’s celebrate eruri. Even if Isayama fucked it up.

-Halo, by  tanglingshadows: Daryl had done a lot of crazy shit before but letting her into his cell had been the craziest. Everything was just so dark, and he couldn’t bring himself to say no to the warm light she brought into his life. Nothing is ever simple, though, especially in the apocalypse.

-Gasp & Ignite, by tanglingshadows:  There was no hesitation in his grip, no second thoughts. He could feel her trust seep into his skin from where his hand lay on hers. She needed it, and he gave freely.  (This is what happened in Too Far Gone and nobody is going to convince me otherwise.)

Yesterday I promised an ot3 Steve/Tony/Peter sketch to laireshi and the choice was between fluff and angst and OH MY GOD I DECIDED TO GO FOR ANGST IS ANYONE SURPRISED I surely am not
(but I’ll probably do the fluff one too because I had a cute mental image)

(onto another note I wanted to use this notes for the sketch-galore but I’m rethinking my decision, the paper quality is kinda low… OMG WHAT DO I USE NOW [commence panic mode])

Dear Diary,

Yesterday morning I woke up and made myself some eggs and threw a shao bing in the toaster. Turned on the Today Show because I like the noise in the background while eating, and also sometimes I learn useful things like how to keep my sock drawer organized or how to cook Kabocha squash three ways + one way to carve it into a jack o’lantern.

Usually breakfast is when I scroll through my social media feeds, but this morning I dropped the canister of pork floss I was trying to stuff in my shao bing all over the ground and I was busy sweeping and then I had to get my face on and figure out what was appropriate attire to wear to a second grade Victorian-themed birthday party where I was hired by the well-meaning lady in my book club to type haikus for eight-year-old girls on a real typewriter. “Or limmericks,” she told me, “the kids love limmericks.”

The birthday party was okay, except one five-year old, somebody’s kid brother, kept asking me why my eyes were like that, like genuinely curious, and I didn’t know what to do but laugh. The other kids called me “Yuffin” rhymes with “muffin”.

“MISS YUFFIN I WANT MY POEM TO BE ABOUT FLYING PONIES!”

So it wasn’t until late afternoon that I got Facebook and saw my name everywhere – a HASHTAG even! – and I was like what? And that’s when I saw that some doughy white guy was going around submitting poems under my name, and not only had he gotten them in somewhere, he got into a damn big-deal poetry anthology, like one of those places where you can brag about it to everyone and it’s in your bio forever and it makes feel like you made it for real.

I looked closely at that guy’s picture, trying to remember if I knew him from somewhere, but I don’t know, I mean he could have been anyone. He could have been that dude last week who approached me when I was reading at a restaurant bar and told me he really enjoyed chicken teriyaki as a pick-up line, or the guy who passed me on the street and said, “yum, yum dim sum” or maybe that blind date I went on once who looked at me funny when I said I was a poet, and he said, “Oh, that’s cute” – that’s cute – and then started telling me about how one day he was going to write a book too. 

Or maybe we knew each other when we were kids. Maybe he was that little white boy at camp who taught me that song while pulling on the sides of his eyes – “Chinese, Japanese, in-between” – the song that I took home to my parents who looked at me in abject horror and told me never to repeat that in their home, harshly and angrily. I cried, because I didn’t understand why they were so angry. I’d thought they’d like the song because it was about Chinese people.

I read the dude’s statement, something about how he only used my name when he couldn’t get a poem published, then looked back at his publication credits – Poetry magazine! – and his flippant aside on his “detailed records” and I thought of my own detailed records, highlighted in red for all my rejections, big panels of red all around, a fucking red sea. I thought about the times I dated white boys JUST because maybe I’d marry them and my last name would be Smith and then I’d change my first name to Yvonne – the name I used to beg my parents to let me take instead and the name I used to secretly use at school when I was nine and embarrassed – and I’d never be asked by a well-meaning mentor or writer friend why my “culture” wasn’t more present in my poems ever again.

“Ethnic writers are SO HOT these days!” one friend once told me. Tinge of envy in her voice. 

Then I read the people who were invoking my name, saying it shouldn’t matter if dude stole my name or used his own name, since his poetry was good enough anyway (I thought his poems were really weird, but hey, what do I know? I’m only a Chinese American woman, after all), and I wanted to cry. I wanted to scream – but it’s MY name, it’s the name I’ve spent my whole life being OKAY with, it might not be Yvonne or Angela but it’s MINE, my parents GAVE it to ME, and I used to hate it, it used to make me so ashamed, it’s the name kids used to yell, “Eeww Effin’ has stinky BROWN eggs, she smells like ROTTEN EGGS like her lunch, EFFIN ROTTEN!” and I used to pray to God please when I wake up tomorrow let me be just Veronica or Kimberly, let me be Dawn and have blonde hair and ham sandwiches, let me have big green eyes and let Mama and Baba be Mom and Daddy and talk less funny – that’s my name that I hated and was awful to and disparaged and ignored and claimed and learned to love.

Fuck man. Do you know how hard it was for me to learn to love my name?

And this guy’s just throwing it on like it’s nothing. Like it’s a new tie.

But I was too exhausted after all that reading, plus all those terrible limericks I’d had to write. Besides, who could I tell all of this to? Who would listen?

I made dinner. Spaghetti carbonara, which always comforts me.

I’m just me, you know, and nobody knows who I am. Everyone knows my name, everyone has an opinion on my name, but so far nobody knows me. Nobody has asked me who *I* am. I’m more than my name, but my name is part of me. Who cares about me?

I’m the most famous invisible Asian American girl I know.

love,

YFC
