dearest international skam fans, there are a few killer norwegian songs you need to hear

til dere norske, add til no sanger hvis du synes at jeg glemte noen! 

A Treatisse Againste Ungoddly Vyllainnes And Those Misuguidded Folke Who Do Finde Them to Bee Sympathetick Or Relate To Them, For Thatt Be A Devilish Way of Thinking

Sympathize nott with the dirtie villainne Shylock. Comely though he bee, and mayhaps a pitifulle creatur, lest thou fall into the same trapp as the goodly Christiannes of Venice in your tolerance of the Jew.

Thou Jews who do identfye with Shylock, begonne! Though thy bloode be redd and though you laugh when tyckled, thy sympathies to the vyllian only showe thy internalized feare of the Jew andd is why we expelled thee from Christianne England in the fyrst place. 

And thou who doth indentifye with the Rascalle Mercutio because thou seest in him a love unnaturalle for Romeo his cuz - love him not, I sayy, but rather wish for for a personnne of goodlier stuffe and upright character to be your representationne, lest it be thine own fault that thou beest persecuted.

Thou be next, thou piteous depress’d folk who do find their heartts growe tender towards Hamlet, that fuckboy.

I’m trying not to spam these, but Trinket fits the meme so well…

i am a Bear,
i love my mom
her voyce is softe,
her hugs are warme
and Percy deare,
her cheek he pecks
but i was fyrst - 
i lik my Vex

Pet peeve: Shakespeare's writings are not "Old English."

This is Shakespeare.

If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended—
That you have but slumbered here
While these visions did appear.
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding but a dream,
Gentles, do not reprehend.
If you pardon, we will mend.
And, as I am an honest Puck,
If we have unearnèd luck
Now to ’scape the serpent’s tongue,
We will make amends ere long.
Else the Puck a liar call.
So good night unto you all.
Give me your hands if we be friends,
And Robin shall restore amends.

This is Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.

Now wyl I of hor seruise say yow no more,
For veh wyȝe may wel wit no wont þat þer were;
An oþer noyse ful newe neȝed biliue,
Þat þe lude myȝt haf leue lif-lode to cach.
For vneþe watȝ þe noyce not a whyle sesed,
& þe fyrst cource in þe court kyndely serued,
Þer hales in at þe halle dor an aghlich mayster,
On þe most on þe molde on mesure hyghe;
Fro þe swyre to þe swange so sware & so þik,
& his lyndes & his lymes so longe & so grete,
Half etayn in erde I hope þat he were.
Bot mon most I algate mynn hym to bene,
& þat þe myriest in his muckel þat myȝt ride;
For of bak & of brest al were his bodi sturne,
Bot his wombe & his wast were worthily smale,
& alle his fetures folȝande, in forme þat he hade,
        ful clene;
    For wonder of his hwe men hade,
    Set in his semblaunt sene;
    He ferde as freke were fade,
    & ouer-al enker grene.

This is Beowulf.

Hwæt! We Gardena in geardagum,
þeodcyninga, þrym gefrunon,
hu ða æþelingas ellen fremedon.
Oft Scyld Scefing sceaþena þreatum,

monegum mægþum, meodosetla ofteah,
egsode eorlas. Syððan ærest wearð
feasceaft funden, he þæs frofre gebad,
weox under wolcnum, weorðmyndum þah,
oðþæt him æghwylc þara ymbsittendra

ofer hronrade hyran scolde,
gomban gyldan. þæt wæs god cyning!
Ðæm eafera wæs æfter cenned,
geong in geardum, þone god sende
folce to frofre; fyrenðearfe ongeat

þe hie ær drugon aldorlease
lange hwile. Him þæs liffrea,
wuldres wealdend, woroldare forgeaf;
Beowulf wæs breme (blæd wide sprang),
Scyldes eafera Scedelandum in.

Only one of these is Old English, and it is the one you can’t read at all. I have read Beowulf, but only in a translation. The other two are Middle English (mostly doable in its original form, if you have good sidenotes or a dictionary), and early modern English (a difficult turn of phrase, but otherwise entirely readable). And let me tell you, after having been staring at Middle English poetry for the past half hour, Shakespeare is dead easy in comparison. Don’t take medieval literature classes, they’ll kill your brain.

And now you have learned a thing! Please stop calling Shakespeare “Old English.”

DISNEY HIGH SCHOOL: arielle sirène + eric fyrste .

arielle (sophmore) : grew up kinda sheltered (especially after the accident that cost her her legs) but she always had the drive to go exploring and nothing could really stop her, but now she’s got her really cool prostheses with the fish scale pattern. she can be a bit of a rebel and is fond of collecting souvenirs from her adventures.

eric (junior) : is a bit of a preppy boy. his true passion is sailing, and he’s part of the local rowing club. boy just loves boats. he met arielle after she rescued him from a falling tree branch during a storm, and they’ve been super close ever since.

( a.k.a. here’s a project i was doing like 2 years ago that i decided to revisit. more to come, maybe? )
