Arle’s Memories 1

Translated by me!

a little tl note that may help newer fans: Fever 2, the game these books come from, is chronologically set before 15th, the game that first began the process of reintroducing characters from the old Compile series such as Satan, Rulue, Schezo, and several others, back into the current Sega series. At this point, the only returning characters from the Compile series were Arle and Carbuncle. That knowledge may help put a little more perspective on this particular book.

political podcasts are kinda takin’ off at the moment (for obvs reasons) but a buncha them are wishy-washy npr “is it ok to punch a nazi?” mega-liberal shows that make me want to scream so here’s the ones that do not make me, personally, incredibly angry

  • pod save america, which is hosted by a few of obama’s former aides. they actually were the last people to interview obama before he left office and the interview made me feel like i understood things a lot more. also it’s good to keep track of EXACTLY  how fucked up this administration is from the point of view of insiders from the LAST administration
  • pod save the world is made by the same guys, and it’s a little over my head, but if you want to learn more about the wildly complex world of international politics, and exactly how badly the new administration is fucking them up, it seems like a pretty good resource
  • intercepted is pretty new, and i haven’t done any research into the people who make it, but their politics are a little more radical and they don’t pretend fascism is a valid point of view the way npr tends to do. also they have some spoken word poetry in every episode which is Neat 

i’m not an expert by any means but these are the ones that haven’t driven me away w/ either frustrating neutrality in the face of blatant human rights violations, or w/ conspiracy theories & fear-mongering. woof

The interdimensional call echoed in the silence and darkness of the room where Star was. She called her best friend, Ponyhead.  
“B-FLY! OH MY GOSH! Long time no see!” she shouted “How are you? Always good catching up!” 
Star didn’t aswer but Ponyhead continued to speak: “Things at ST.Olga are mad, like ever! But I don’t give up! NO ONE CAN TAME ME! HAHAHA! I TOTALLY RULED THIS PLACE!”
Star kept silent. It was weird.
Ponyhead stopped immediately when she realized that her friend did not react.
“Ehy girl, what’s up? You look different! Is anything wrong there?”
Star bit her lip and lowered her head. Ponyhead was more worried.Star was always so cheerful and talkative! What happened to her?
“Did the earth turd…erhm…Marco upset you?” asked jokingly.
That question was like a knife in the chest for Star. Ponyhead perceived it, and made a face like ‘did I say something wrong?’. Only then she noticed the environment behind her friend: Star was in her room in Mewni.
Meanwhile Star finally spoke: “Actually…. I’m not on earth anymore!”
“WHAT?”
roared Ponyhead “OMG! WHY? Is really because of Marco or something else happened?”
“It was my fault!” she said with voice breaking “It’s totally my bad!”.
There was a long silence. Ponyhead  didn’t know what to say, but she knew that her best friend needed help and wanted to talk.
“What happened exactly, Star? Why are you saying it’s your fault?” she asked slowly  “Do you feel like talking to me?”
Star took a deep breath and blinked her wet eyes. She couldn’t look at her friend’s eyes. She was afraid to start crying. She had to be strong and resolute. A Star never seen before.
“Well, It all began three months ago…and…”

TO BE CONTINUED…

What happened to Star? Why she’s on Mewni now? Where is Marco? 
You can draw your own conclusions. Next page will arrive soon! ;)
Suggestions or english corrections are welcome, as always!~

hey! i translated a small part of one of the stories in the most recent TG novel “quest”! it’s the part with touka and nishiki in the story called “tension.”

it didn’t seem to me that this had been done already, though i didn’t do a lot of searching. additionally, i’m pretty uncertain about a lot of parts in my translation (esp. dialogue), and, i welcome any corrections or tips. for the most part, i just did this for my own japanese practice/enjoyment and also bc i adore touka, and am just sharing in case anyone is interested :)

hope you all are having a good day~

So Much for My Happy Ending

Okay, look, half an hour ago I was thinking about going to bed and then this hit me square in the noggin and frankly that’s gonna have to be the excuse for any lack of coherency because good GOD Candice in that preview trailer, thank you and good night.

So Much for My Happy Ending

Deep in her stomach, there’s a knot of cold, numb confusion. Barry’s mouth is moving and he’s telling her - he’s telling her -

No.

The rest of her is taking it in, feeling it sink from her skin through her muscles and down to her bones. She can feel tears rolling hot down her face, fear and horror choking up her throat, boiling in her stomach. She wants to throw up. She ate Chipotle for lunch. It’ll be a mess in this gleaming white room, she thinks stupidly, and grits her teeth against the bile rising up.

He catches her by the shoulders - Hey. Look at me.

Barry’s touch, the most familiar thing. Barry’s hands and his warmth and the angle of his long arms and the wideness of his eyes as he looks at her with an expression she only just learned to identify two years ago, which is not enough time.

Four months isn’t enough time either.

None of this is enough time.

Because in five months, she’s going to die.

Four months plus five months doesn’t equal a year, which means she will never have a real anniversary with Barry. She wants an anniversary with him, more than anything.

She wants a family with him.

She wants a home with him.

She wants to fight with him over stupid things, and laugh with him over stupider things. She wants to see him grow grey and she wants to see him still look at her like he’s looking at her now, when she’s grey herself.

She wants a life, a full long one. She wants to write big, important things. She wants to be somebody. She wants to leave her own Iris-shaped mark on the world, carved deep. She wants friends and laughter and to see her father hold his grandbabies and to see Wally become his full adult self and build a life too.

Three score and ten, she remembers that from somewhere. Maybe something Grandma Esther says, from the Bible, about the length God allotted to human lives.

She’s not a fool, and she’s not a child, and she knows that God makes no promises. Promises are a human arrogance.

She wants her three score and ten, whatever that means, with Barry.

She wants - she wants - she wants.

“This is not gonna happen,” he swears. “I swear on both my parents’ lives, I will protect you.”

She nods and thinks, you are not a god; you are not immortal. She’d said as much to him last year, when he was flush with the Speed Force and felt invincible, and she can’t stop herself from thinking about what happened next.

“Do you believe me?”

“Yes,” she says, and hopes that someday soon, she does.

Welcome to Sweden
What is life like in Sweden? The politicians are participating in a chicken race of “goodness” where everybody tries to one-up each other in caring for the c...

“Welcome to Sweden. This is the number one rape capital of Europe.”

I love this guy. Old but gold video. Check out his stuff to see what is really happening in Sweden.

“Sweden is what Tumblr would look like if it was a country.”

anonymous asked:

i just finished dsod and holy shit kaiba, kiddo, pls chill for one second... ok tbh i've only seen posts & gifsets going around saying that this movie was something else entirely, and now that i've watched it i'm just. that moment when yugi said "he's gone" and kaiba's eyes were sorta shimmering - i'm pretty sure there's another feeling there instead of the usual "duel me yugi!!". attraction might be too strong a word, or not, but definitely something else. (it's attraction ffs who am i kidding)

in short: kaiba invents an interdimensional transporter to the afterlife to play card game with the pharaoh: the movie. GIVE ME MORE OF THIS   (2/2)

Pour one out for the two bros sat in front of me at the cinema who had just come for HD Card Games, were the only ones who didn’t applaud/cry at the end, and instead sat looking lost and confused at the turn this movie took.

Informal Commands!

SO a way of making a very informal command to NOT do something is to put な at the end of a dictionary form present tense verb:
(all exclamation points optional lol)
食べる To eat: たべる→ たべるな ! = Don’t eat!
動く To move: うごく→ うごくな ! = Don’t move! (Cops say this sometimes on TV lol)

A way of making a very informal command to DO something is to put な at the end of the verb stem:
たべる→ たべ→ たべな ! = Eat!
寝る To sleep: ねる→ ね→ ねな!=Sleep!
This is the shortened form of the slightly more formal command form:
(Verb Stem) + なさい
たべる→ たべ→ たべなさい ! = Eat!
ねる→ ね→ ねなさい!=Sleep!

BUT when someone says it fast, it’s really hard to tell if they’re telling you to definitely DO something or to definitely NOT do something so make sure you ask if you’re confused!
(Not a native speaker; corrections welcome!)

Just throwing this out there before I go to bed because it’s been weighing on my mind a bit. Sometimes I make throw away posts, the kind I jot down just to get an idea out my head or to express frustration with something, and because I have a large-ish following, they can get a lot of notes.

As a result they end up being seen by people who don’t know me, and will sometimes jump to the conclusion that I am being intentionally hurtful because I said XYZ which enforces ZYX which is Bad.

Sometimes they come talk to me and explain it to me. Other times I get attempted callouts which 9/10 die when I apologize for my ignorance.

Because here’s the thing: I genuinely do no want to hurt anyone with my words. I have and always will fully welcome correction on my ignorance. And if I ever post or reblog something which invalidates you or hurts you, I want you to know it comes from a place of ignorance and not malice, and I apologize wholeheartedly and will strive to do better.

Because I know, I know saying “I didn’t meant to hurt you” does not negate any hurt caused. And you deserve better than that.

VOLUME 4 OMAKE

Translators: vanillue

Raws, Typesetter: akutagawaprize

It’s officially Christmas on this side of the world, and what better way to celebrate than to post these cute volume extras? As a standard disclaimer note, this is just a fan translation based on limited Japanese skills. Comments/corrections are welcome and encouraged!

also this is where the mackerel vs slug jokes from jp fandom come from, although rl Dazai and Nakahara did call each other those names too at some point lol

EDIT: Changed the wording for a line. Thank you kurootetsunya!

Here’s the continuation of the infographic project I started with this general timeline of CLAMP publications. I took a crack at making a unified timeline for Cardcaptor Sakura, TSUBASA RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE, and xxxHOLiC. Some other fans have put out TRC timelines in the past, but I wanted to make something that was simultaneously attractive and easy to read on its own. As always, comments, corrections, and questions are welcome!

How this should go:

“I think he’s a fatuous moral degenerate, a knock-off strongman wannabe puppet-twit, a maddeningly ignorant galoot with a clump of fetid cat turds for a brain, an embarrassment to the very idea of humanity.”

“Correct. Welcome to America!”

rey completely and utterly destroys kylo. she kicks him to the ground and brands his face with her lightsaber. her presence is pure rage and fire and passion and she shakes him down to the depths of his soul. she upsets his plans, ruins his game, storms his mind and uncovers his greatest fear and exposes what he really is to himself. her contempt and scorn for him are palpable, burned into his soul forever with her searing passion and the last shot of him in the entire movie is him trying to lift himself up to get a better look at the woman who just destroyed him. this kid, this idiottttttttttttt, this utter moron, who keeps trying to be something he isn’t, who keeps fighting against the light as hard as he possible can gets WRECKED by a pretty little scavenger girl who was supposed to be his prisoner, who came out of nowhere and flattened him, shattering his entire world with her fire and passion and rage. and I’m not supposed to want him, this kid, this MORON, this idiot, this deluded wanna-be darth Vader, this melodramatic baby, this clumsy and inadequate macaroon to fall heart-crushingly in love with her????

she broke his entire world, smashed it to smithereens and left him in its ruins. it just makes sense she’d do the same to his heart.
