❄⛄🎶Christmas Music in Different Languages🎶⛄❄

Hello! So, I’ve researched some Christmas music in different languages. Some have a lot, like, too much so I narrowed it down, and some don’t have that much, but I found the best I could. Some are similar songs to what English speakers and Americans are used to such as “jingle bells” etc etc, while others are their own original seasonal songs. If it’s similar or the same song as traditional songs in English, I’ll put them in the parenthesis. So anyway, enjoy and happy holidays!

-Cecelia

2016

i. you were born back when people still believed in beginnings, in fresh starts and re-sets, and trying again, all  over. you are no quitter. you wouldn’t know how to quit love even if you tried; even if it was suffocating you and you were sure to die. no, you’re no quitter. (january)

ii. you are a child of melting snows. you are a child of the future. you do not live in the now, you do not settle, you do not make plans. one day you will love. when, all else is right. you are a child of melting snows, but darling, in life there are always fresh snows somewhere, spring is always not-quite there. (february)

iii. the earth smelled like frost when you were born. you have a razor-sharp mind and a quick tongue, but some people still get under your skin. and like frost under your mother’s feet, you crack, you melt, you become mist. (march)

iv. april showers bring may flowers. you are forever preparing the world for other people. your friends for their true best friend, your sister for your brother, your lover for the right one. you only love in interludes. (april)

v. god you are everything. the grass is never as green and the sky is never as high, and the breeze never as soft. you are perfection. but life does not deal in absolutes, and love is flawed. you will not find what you are looking for. (may)

vi. you are everyone's favourite afterthought. you are what tenderness feels like. darling, you are a field of dandelions swaying in the wind. you fix people. you let them build homes inside you. you make them whole. you are an afterthought. a rest-stop. it hurts in a place no map leads to. (june)
 
vii. when you were born the earth was scorched. you are a child of heat. you are a child of desert. you can do without love almost as long as you can do without water. and a little, a little goes a long way. it’s a good thing too, because baby, your pride makes loving you so damn hard. (july)

viii. quiet is how they describe you. they don’t know of the song you carry inside, of the screams unsettled in your lungs, of the poems and stories you have under your belt. you are the quiet one - the quiet revelation, the surprise, the coming out. the becoming. (august)

ix. melancholia. you are rain, you wash people clean. you are a builder, you help them rise. you are the wind, you help them fly. you are everyone’s best friend and no one's favourite lover. you disappear under the weight of good deeds. saints are revered, but not loved. it is difficult to be with someone on a pedestal. (september)

x. you are a shape-shifter. you do not know your face. you have been lost since you can remember. sometimes you are found at the bottom of a bottle, or in thick smoke coming out of his lungs. sometimes you are found. but not in love, no in the ashes of love. you are what endings look like. (october)

xi. the clouds were so low when you were born your sister thought she could reach them. overachievers. nothing is ever good enough. no one is ever enough. people are just a promise of what’s to come. how does it feel to live your life in the promiseland? (november)

xii. when you were born the sky was white. not light blue, not powder blue, but white. you are pure love. you are the one. but people are always looking to go back, to start over, to re-set. you are the one, but all it does - is make people realise they do not want to become. (december)

—  marina v., you are the month you were born in.

110 Days Until Christmas! 🎄❤

Okay, I was just on Goodreads and...

Apparently according to a bunch of people Victoria Aveyard ripped off Pierce Brown’s Red Rising with her book Red Queen.

I almost cyber-punched someone because obviously these people have never actually double-checked one very important detail.

Red Rising came out January 28, 2014.

Red Queen came out February 10, 2015.

That literally means Victoria Aveyard managed to: 

read Red Rising
write the rough draft of Red Queen (her debut novel)
edit it
send it to an agent
have her future agent read it (slush can take up to 6 months, you guys)
have her future agent schedule a phone call with her
have the actual phone call
sign the agent contract
mail the contract back to the agency
start the agent-editing process (which takes up to 3-4 months)
finish the agent-editing process
send it out to editors
have an editor read it (can take a month or more)
have the editor contact her agent
negotiate a contract
have Victoria sign the contract and mail it back
start and finish the publishers-editing process
create a cover
put together ARCS
send out all the ARCS

And somehow Victoria the Whiz Kid Queen managed to do all of this in…let’s see, ARCs come out 2-3 months before a book’s release date, so she had to be done by say, December with that whole list. So she managed to do all of that…in 10 months.

Are. You. Fucking. Kidding. Me???

Next person that libels an author needs to get cyber-slapped, because that stuff isn’t okay. Like, if you don’t like her book, fine. But don’t lie about her to make you look like you’re oh so fucking smart.

Chang Ge Xing Drama Update

It’s been a long wait, but we finally have some new info on the drama.

About a week ago, Huace Media has released its network drama series production plan for 2017, and lo and behold, Chang Ge Xing is on it *cue angel choir in the background*.

The list includes 31 network drama series that will go into production this year. FYI, “network drama” means that these series are produced specifically for online distribution instead of being broadcasted on TV. Network drama has been becoming popular in recent years, and there’s no difference between network drama and regular ones except for its playing media.

Anyway, this list has Chang Ge Xing at number 29, putting it in the 4th quarter of the year. In other word, the filming should begin sometimes in October to December 2017. The list also mentions the number of episodes planned, which is 60 episodes for Chang Ge Xing (give or take a few). This is a respectable number and is comparable to some of the biggest productions by Huace Media recently: The Princess Weiyoung (54 eps), General and I (62 eps), and Three Lives Three Worlds, Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms (58 eps).

There’s still no news on the cast and staff yet, but we still have a few months left until the 4th quarter, so hopefully there’ll be more news by then. Other sources also says that Chang Ge Xing will be broadcasted in 2018, which makes sense with the current timeline. If this timeline remains unchanged in the future, we might actually have the drama ready before the manhua series ends.

Current ZeXal status: On this day, April 2, 2017, one week after Arc V finished, six years and one day after I finished watching 5D’s.

After denying the value of this show for five years and claiming that the series wasn’t worth my time.

After shutting it down because “what the hell are these character designs?” and “IT’S TOO MUCH LIKE YGO DM” and “I wouldn’t like Yuma, so I’m not gonna bother.”

After refusing to give it a chance simply because of the Shin Yoshida name associated with it and the obnoxious part of the fandom going after anyone whose opinions didn’t align with theirs.

After being vaguely interested because of Astral, Shark, and Kaito but not willing to outright admit it.

After saying “I’ll watch it when I’m dead.”

After finally giving it a chance and putting it on my Plan to Watch list in December 2016 because “at least the plot’s coherent and Astral’s as much of a main protag as Yuma.”

After finally, FINALLY saying “fuck it” to all the negative crap I’ve heard from the obnoxious parts of both sides about this show and all the expectations I placed on it based on it. and going into it ignoring all of those opinions and expectations.

After realizing that it’s supposed to be the new generation version of YGO DM geared towards a younger audience and that’s why the two are similar.

After much laughter and smiling and crying with my now-adopted-as-my-card-game-anime-son and definitely one of my faves now, Tsukumo Yuma.

After finally understanding all those ZeXal memes I’ve seen on tumblr.

After much shouting and many tears shed over all my faves in the series (FUCKING LOOKING AT YOU ESPECIALLY, ASTRAL). 

After nearly three months since I started this unexpectedly enjoyable, heartwarming, heartwrenching, depressing, yet fulfilling and liberating journey with Yuma, Astral, Kotori, Shark, Kaito, and the rest of the cast. 

I have finally finished watching Yu-Gi-Oh! ZeXal

And honestly, it feels fantastic.

Hello, and welcome to the first ever 2B9S week, hosted by myself, Irri, (@invaldalia) and the lovely Lumi, (@lumicakes). This is a week by 2B9S fans, for fans young and old, artists, cosplayers, authors and more!

What is 2B9S week?

A full week in early December dedicated to the ship 2B9S. Each day, participants will submit a piece that corresponds with the daily theme to the week through the use of tumblr’s tag system. At the end of the day, the participants and their works will be listed and reblogged for archiving.

When does it start?

It begins December 1st and ends December 7th.

Are there any rules?

Not many!
1. Please be polite to everyone participating. We’re all fans of the same thing! Let’s keep it civil.

2. If you miss a day but still want to submit, you can! Just message us and we’ll help you out.

3. For the sake of brevity, all fics need to be placed under a “read more” link. If you’re on mobile, you’ll need to access tumblr on your browser and add the link into your text from the desktop version.

Is NSFW allowed?

We know how these fandom is huehue and lewds are always great! However not everyone wants to see them, so all mature content needs to be tagged as #NSFW2B9SWeek and if you feel it’s really smutty, maybe a read more link.

Do I need to do all the days?

Nope! You can do all of them or just two! This is no pressure fun!

How do I join?

Tag your piece with #2B9SWeek2017 and the corresponding day tag, (i.e, for day 6, you would tag your piece as #LunarTears2B9Sweek) this makes it easier for us to find your work.

Can I do anything?

You can do whatever you feel like! Genderbends, role reversal, AU, anything you want and for whatever day you’d like. You’re not stuck into doing one thing if you don’t feel like it.

(Mod irri likes genderbends cough cough you know, earn her favor)

Schedule

Day 1 -  Protection (December 1st)

Day 2 -  Kiss (December 2nd)

Day 3 – kemonomimi (animal ears and animal tails)/fairy tale/sinoalice (December 3rd)

Day 4 - T-shirt Date/T-Shirts (December 4th)
