I’ve Been Reading  Instruction For American Servicemen In Britain 1942

So Instruction For American Servicemen In Britain 1942 is a reproduced typescript of what was giving to men going over to Britain to help ease friction with the populace. And I thought I would share my favorite parts of the text.


You will naturally be interested in getting to know your opposite member, the British solider, the “Tommy" you have read and hear about. 


BRITISH RESERVE, NOT UNFRIENDLY. You defeat enemy propaganda not by denying that differences exist but by admitting them openly and then trying to understand them. For British are often more reserved in conduct than we. On a small island where forty-five million, each man learns to guard his privacy carefully- and is equally careful not to invade another man’s privacy.

So if Britons sit in trains or buses without striking up a conversation with you, it doesn’t mean they are being and unfriendly. Probably they are paying more attention to you than you think. But they don’t speak to you because they don’t want to intrusive or rude.


Another difference.The British have phrases and colloquialisms of their own that may sound funny to you. You can make just as many boners in their eyes. 


DON’T BE A SHOWOFF. The Britsh dislike bragging and showing off. American wages and American soldier’s pay are the highest in the world. (This line about American pay and how you should not flaunt it is said so many times in this book that it’s hilarious.) 


THE BRITISH ARE TOUGH. Don’t be misled by the British tendency to be soft-spoken and polite. If they need to be, they can be plenty tough. The English language didn’t spread across the ocean and over the mountains and jungles and swamps of the world because these people were painty-waists.


You won’t being able to tell the British much about ‘taking it.’ They are not particularly interested in taking it anymore. They are far more interested in getting together in solid friendship with us. So that we can all start dishing it out to Hitler


THE BEST WAY to get on in Britain is very much the same as the best way to get on in America.  The same sort of courtesy and decency and friendliness that go over big in America will go over big in Britain. The British have seen a good many of Americans, and they like Americans. They will like your frankness as long as it is friendly. They will expect you to be generous. They are not given to back-slapping, and they are shy about showing their affections. But once they get to like you they make the best friends in the world


KEEP OUT OF ARGUMENTS. You can rub a Britisher the wrong way by telling him “We came over and won the last one.”


Once again, look, listen, and learn before you start telling the British how much better we do things. (This is the best line) 


The British don’t know how to make a good cup of coffee, and you don’t know how to make a good cup of tea it’s and even swap.

12.04.17 // I had my chemistry term paper today, I have the biology one on Friday. I also remembered about my certification paper speech so I have to revise it.

Things people who refuse to watch FMA 03 are missing out on, as chosen by someone who actually thinks 03 is terrible and swears by the manga:

  • The music. God, it was all so good! The OST, the openings, everything. Especially l’Arc~en~Ciel, the band which did the most songs for FMA out of any artist (with a total of 4), but only one of which was used outside of 03 (Good Luck My Way from Sacred Star of Milos).
  • Bratja deserves a special mention of its own. Bratja was a song from the OST originally in Russian, sung from the perspective of the brothers. A fan made an incredibly beautiful and poetic set of English lyrics, which quickly spread through the fandom and were even sung by Vic Mignogna, Ed’s English voice actor.
  • A lot of old fandom memes, such as “I love dogs”, “Tiny miniskirts”, “Colonel Mustang is dead sexy”, short rants, etc. Basically the precursors to the Flame Alchemist rap, in a way.
  • The origin of a lot of fandom tropes and ships. Like regardless of whether or not you like them, I think it’s important to understand where these things come from and why. R/oy/Ed, Ed/vy, El/rice/st, Pride!Ed, Envy’s popularity in general, Ed’s birthday, “real world counterparts”, and brown hair Al all have their roots in 03. It’s also the biggest reason for Hohenheim hate; 03 Hohenheim was an absolutely terrible person, and since he wasn’t shown to be a good person right away in Mangahood, a lot of us had a deep-seated mistrust of him.
  • Reole/Liore residents had dark skin!
  • More development for the Ishvalans, including actual names for some of them, and an entire episode about Al bonding with a pair of young Ishvalan boys who hold misplaced resentment for their dead mother. Ever wonder why that one kid who saved Scar from the sewer is sometimes called Rick? 03 is why.
  • The Tringham brothers! There’s an episode (very loosely based off one of the light novels) where Ed and Al encounter a pair of alchemists about their age using their identities to do some… less than responsible research. Fletcher is my son.
  • Aaron Dismuke, Al’s original dub voice actor. He was fantastic, but he was also an Actual Prepubescent Boy who hit puberty just after the series finished, hence the recast for Brotherhood. Aaron returns in Brotherhood as the voice of young Hohenheim.
  • A lot more comedy. While the manga was full of funny scenes, Brotherhood cut out the majority of them. 03 had a lot more jokes, including episodes 13 and 37, which were fucking hysterical.
  • Adaptations (albeit not the best) or some bonus content from the manga, such as extra chapters and one of the light novels, as well as a lot of early chapters that Brotherhood left out. Meaning Youswell actually gets an episode!
  • A lot of early “villain of the day” type episodes, which although weird and nonsensical, were a lot of fun and are great if you feel like watching FMA but don’t want to jump in at the middle of the plot or rewatch Reole for the gazillionth time.
  • I’m going to be completely honest with you, as an Al fan who’s very picky about visuals, Al’s armor looked way better in 03 than it does in Brotherhood. (Aside from the inconsistencies with his eye color.)
  • Winry and Sheska’s alien witch hunt. No, I’m not making that up.

Isaac Lahey x Stiles!sis Request

hii!! could you please write an isaac lahey x reader where they’re dating and she’s trying to study, but he keeps interrupting her (like kissing her and stuff) cuz he’s bored??

AN: This goes along with the other Isaac Lahey imagines that you can find on Part 2 of my Masterpost :)


You sat at your desk in your room, your music playing as background noise to cancel out the rest of the noise going on the hallway. Your Chemistry book, your Statistics book, and your books for your English class were spread out in front out you. You heard your dorm door open and turned to see your smiling boyfriend enter. “Hey, what are you doing here?”

“I got out of practice early. Thought I’d stop by and hang out for a while and then we could get dinner. What are you doing,” he peered over your full desk.

“I’ve got a Chemistry test in a couple weeks that I have to get organized for, Stats homework due Friday and a quiz in it Wednesday, and I have a English paper I have to do a rough draft for. I don’t know if I’ll be entertaining until I can get some of this done,” you said apologetically.

“That’s alright, you do your work and I’ll just chill out here,” he jumped on your bed, “and look at my phone.” You grinned and got back to work, digging into your chemistry.

After about an hour of making chemistry note cards and reviewing your stats notes you heard Isaac finally reach the limit of his boredom. He let out a sigh before turning onto his stomach. Then another sigh as he gave up trying to get comfortable. He stood up and started looking the things that lines your shelves and nightstand, things he’d seen a thousand times before. Finally, he stopped behind your chair and knelt over your shoulder.

“Can I help you,” you turned to look at him.

“No.” He stayed over your shoulder watching you go over notes. Slowly his arms wrapped around your neck and he leaned into you. Then he pressed a kiss to your neck.

“Isaac,” you warned.

“What,” you could hear the smirk on his face as he pretended he wasn’t doing anything wrong.

“I need to get this stuff done.”

“You are getting it done,” he said in between the kissed he kept giving you.

“Isaac, if I flunk these tests I’m going to be ruined…”

“You’re not going to fail. You’re a genius,” he spun your chair around and, this time, kissed your mouth. “So, why not take a little break with me?” His grin was infectious.

“I have to start my paper tonight.”

“Then let’s order a pizza for delivery, keep ourselves busy for a little while, and after we’ve eaten you can start your paper…”

With his smirking lips so close to yours you found yourself giving in. “I guess I can take a little break.”

“That’s my girl,” he said grabbing you and pulling you out of your chair.
