Since the other version got so many notes, I thought I’d post this one too (which happens to the one i was originally going to post, and even now still actually prefer), the warm tones seem more ‘eros’ to me i guess haha
There are some mistranslation on Luffy’s page in the translated Luff’s last episode (second pic above) that has been circulating around across sites.
I have been waiting since this translated page was posted and now that it’s been a while, I’m growing uncomfortable for not yet finding anyone else pointing it out, considering how big One Piece fandom is, so I’d like to clarify:
No, in the 4th-5th panel, Luffy is not asking for Zoro and Sanji to punch him so he can see the dream again. The original text「おれがこんなに夢見てる様じゃ、おれ達は前に進めねェ！！！」is better translated to “With me seeing such dream, we won’t be able to move forward!!!”. Luffy is asking for a punch to help him stop clinging to the past. And considering his personality, he’s not the type who would let himself mulling over the past and what-ifs no matter how nice they seem.
And in the last panel, Luffy actually says “I only saw a dream!” instead of “I only wanted to see a dream!”. It could be a simple mistake, of mistaking the original text 「夢見ただけだぞ」with「夢見たいだけだぞ」, but it leaves a noticeable different impression. It should be something along the line of “You shouldn’t have punched me THAT hard just because I saw a dream!!” despite him being the one asking for it, instead of him complaining “Is it that wrong for me wanting to see a dream?!”.
Last one, but it’s more like a personal beef regarding translation, the text bubble that screams “WAIT!!!” originally only says 「おらァ！！」or “ORAA!!!”. It originally is just Sanji and Zoro shouting while punching Luffy, but the translation makes it seems as if Luffy is asking for them to halt their action.
Those are all I’m gonna note here for now. If anyone finds some mistakes from my side, you’re very welcome to point it out! I honestly would rather privately message the translator but I had a hard time tracing back to find them and I just… I’m just sad to see many people getting the wrong idea from the mistranslation…
You are who you are, and there’s nothing that anybody can do to change that. However, that’s the beautiful thing about being who you are; you were created a certain way in which no one else can replicate. Not even come close to. And guess what? Nothing can ever change that; you will forever be your own unique original.
original shiro comes back to find clone shiro and sven (who they saved from the alternate reality i guess idk just go with it) constantly fighting over lance. which, of course, causes him to push down feelings that he refuses to call jealousy until one day he snaps and starts outwardly trying to woo lance. lance is just happy to be getting so much attention and wonders why he can’t have all three…or can he?
Aries, I like how hard working and good hearted you are. Pretty generous and make me laugh! Fun af too. But shy? You know what you want and how to get it. Good job.
Ok Taurus you make me laugh because damn are you hard headed and sometimes just to be annoying and pick at people. I definitely get that humor and highly encourage it! Seriously though, you are adorably sensual.
Um Gemini doesn’t get a description because it would be a roast.
Cancer reminds me of the child in the zodiac. Up for anything and innocent. There’s this friendly glow about them, don’t have to say or do much and entertain the hell out of me! Psycho but the kind of psycho that is acceptable and gets things done.
Oh boy, much experience with Leos. Extremely sensitive and ready to fight back yet believe they deserve the world. Sometimes you do. Pretty irresistible. I get you man. Somewhat. Honestly there is this hypnotic way about your eyes too. #sistersign
Alright Virgos I don’t know how you do it but it’s almost like you can read into my entire being just by looking at me. For real. I love your point of views and the way you speak. Surprisingly emotional but only if pushed.
Don’t know much about you Libras except the fact of having this outer shell to impress. Pretty dangerous to get close. Real confusing.
Damn Scorpios could calm down a lot. I mean even if you don’t speak, it’s your stare or that energy. And guess what? People are going to know your motives at one point or another so no point in trying to be secretive. Narcissists.
Aye Sagittarius! I admire you in so many ways. First off, that energy. Crack me up and make me wonder. Adventures, funny stories and obnoxious laughs is what I think of. The blunt nature is top notch.
Capricorn you remind me of a father figure who works his ass off yet makes sarcastic jokes to get through the day and expect it to be taken the wrong way but it makes everyone laugh hard as hell. That’s basically your being.
Hey there alien Aquarius, my family! (cheesy I know, just one way to describe us). I mean I love how original and deep we are. Well according to others we don’t have souls which is ok with me. Outcasts with a cause. Dark humor. Want to please yet say screw off. Just a huge contradiction.
There is a huge misunderstanding of Pisces in my mind. I want to sometimes like you but don’t think it’s going to happen. The trippy thing is annoying and not much about you interests me. I guess you’re sweet. A bit funny. All I got.
So we’ve basically been given repeated evidence in Voltron that there’s not only ecosystems on planets, but an entire separate ecosystem (or, likely, several) in the depths of space itself. We have the Balmeras, we have the space caterpillars Pidge befriends, and we have the weblum.
The thing is? The weblum eats planets- basically making it the equivalent of space herbivore. That would actually match up a lot with its behavior- the weblum is basically a moose. It’s huge, but like any prey animal it’s skittish, tense, and reacts aggressively to things that remind it of predators. In particular it’s very hostile towards things like Lions or spaceships- and it has a nasty defense mechanism- explicitly called that, on several occasions. A defense mechanism.
You know what that all suggests?
It suggests weblums have predators.
Presumably, ones that are smaller than the weblum itself given, again, its hostile reception to the Yellow Lion- but who might work in packs to take down larger prey. If the weblum is the equivalent of a moose, then these might be the wolves in this metaphor.
I mean, I’m guessing the weblum is a big fish in the pond- why I’d compare it to a moose, not something many creatures would want to tangle with- but we really don’t have a good sample size of this, what I’d tentatively call exofauna. For all we know the weblum is a small fry and pursued by both smaller predators and much, much bigger ones. I’d guess not, but it’s a possibility.
It raises the question of if there’s exoflora to go with the exofauna. The Weblum eats planets, and assuming the caterpillars eat at all, it’s probably safe to figure their diet is metal, considering the contents of their home “nebula”.
I’ve also been wondering for a while, with the idea that the Lions are living creatures, if that’s the origin of their species. Their primary form of communication is telepathy, which doesn’t require air to travel through, and they themselves can be completely sealed from oxygen without ill effect. After all, they seem to have just ‘come from space’ with little warning. The Lions themselves might be creatures whose native environment is open space.
And, most interestingly- this might suggest, what if there are still wild, unmodified Lions out there- obviously, many orders of magnitude weaker than the Voltron Lions, who would have something beyond their modifications setting them apart, but creatures of the same species.
I knew he was growing distant. I could feel it, the boy I first loved slipping away from me. He had come home late that night. Probably with her. I couldn’t blame him, he fell in love but it just wasn’t me.
“Hey babe.”, Damon said, closing the door behind him. He walked into the room and noticed my saddened expression. “Hey, what’s wrong?”.
I looked at him then turned my back and walked to the fire which was set ablaze. With tears brimming in my eyes, I asked, “Were you with her?”.
“What? Who? I don’t even know what you’re talking about.”, he answered almost instantly.
What was he doing? I knew that Damon could be mean sometimes but lying to my face. He owed me more that.
“I can’t do this-”
“Watch as you drift away from me Damon. You’re lying to my face! It’s like you have no respect for me whatsoever.”, you confront, “So I’ll save you the trouble. I’ll leave. I’ll break up with you. I’ll do anything to stop feeling like a piece of garbage.”
With that, I walk out of the Salvatore mansion and climb into my car. Then I start drive. To nowhere really. No place. I don’t know where to go anymore.
Moments I found myself in front of the Mystic Grill. Great! At least, I’ll get a drink! As I entered the grill, I completed ordering a bourbon but then I settled for a glass of gin. Thinking about bourbon only led to a total downpour of emotions to which I drowned in the alcohol. Becoming highly intoxicated, I spotted a man with handsome features. Something was off about him. I could smell it. Werewolf? Warlock? Vampire? Definitely vampire. He shifts out of his chair and sits in the seat next to mine. “What you drinkin’ luv?”, he asked in a British dialect. I swirl the contents of my liquor in my glass and ponder.
“British and a vampire? Let me guess, a Mikaelson.”, I say. His eyebrows arch.
“I wonder which one you are. Well, I hear Elijah is always dressed to the nines so that rules him out. And Klaus has dirty blonde hair and Finn’s a big stick-in-the-mud and this is certainly not his scene.”, I ramble, thinking, “So I guess that leaves… Kol.”
Do you know if we've seen the 'Louis fond nose scrunch' in any of Harry's solo interviews? Asking for science. xx
Now that you mention it…
I think the closest we’ve gotten is this
I’m shakin my damn head because this simply will not do. I mean, we’ve had his talking about Liam face
But no one except that rude ass radio host has mentioned Louis. Ugh. Every time I think about that interview I’m like
Well that and
Because sometimes I seriously can’t believe that happened. I can believe that someone was that rude and gross but I have for a very long time harboured the theory that based on the things that they have said and done that Louis and Harry had some kind of agreement to never verbally deny their relationship. Every denial has come either from Louis’ twitter or from a print interview with one of the other boys. It seemed logical to me given that aside from
After which Harry had to be consoled by Niall
There has never been a, “It’s funny because people think that because we’re really good friends that we’re dating, but actually we just lived together and we’re both very happy with our girlfriends” said out loud.
So when someone said to Harry, “The fans are convinced that ‘Sweet Creature’is about your relationship with Louis Tomlinson,” he was given the perfect opportunity to say, “Actually we’re not in a relationship,” but instead we basically got
Him literally screaming, “NO!” when asked if it was about Taylor Swift.
Harry flat out spent about a minute not directly answering whether or not “Sweet Creature” was about Louis and took less than a second to completely deny that it was about Taylor Swift, despite his previous insistence that the songs were completely up to interpretation. I guess they’re up for interpretation as long as you’re interpreting it as definitely being about Louis. Which is probably why his management was like
And did a complete 180 from this
To their Tessperado stunt that exactly no one believed so they had to contrive some one night stand origin story for “Carolina” that could only be described at Dan Wattpad’s laziest creation.
As uncomfortable as that radio interview was to listen to, I think the aftermath proves how massively Harry blew it for the sake of not outright denying that he in in love with Louis William Tomlinson.
When asked why people think “Sweet Creature”is about Louis, Harry might as well have been like
So the fact that Harry can talk about literally every other member of the band except Louis without completely losing his shit is pretty testament to what I’ve thought all along. And the fact that he can openly discuss every other band member’s solo projects except “Just Hold On” is like
So the reason we have not seen Harry’s Fondlinson face is because he is probably under distinct instructions not to talk about Louis.
I have been working on a fantasy series and my world has 9 nations of people, each with somewhat loose real-world influences. Each nation has its own kind of… guardian animal I guess (I formerly called them totem animals but have recently thought I should avoid that word since it specifically originated from Ojibwe culture) and while most of them are animals I have made up, a few of them are taken from real world mythologies and legends. One is the Wyvern, which doesn’t have any significant purpose in its origin so I think should be fine to use, but the others are the wakinyan (Lakota - thunderbird) and the amarok (Inuit) which were significantly more important to their originating cultures.
The wakinyan is the guardian animal of the nation influenced by some Native American cultures, where the Amarok is similarly the guardian of the nation influenced by Inuit cultures. I hoped this would give representation to those cultures and their mythologies but have worried that in reality it might just be disrespectful. I was hoping you could give me some feedback on whether this use is problematic or appropriative. Thank you! (PS I love this blog, it has taught me a lot, so thank you!)
I’d caution you to make sure that the “Native American” cultures you’re pulling from all use the Thunderbird, because it is specific to a few tribes. It would feel very off to have a culture that didn’t have the Thunderbird at all suddenly have it be incorporated. I’d prefer it if it was one specific tribe, but if you’re pulling from closely-knit nations who have a common history as allies then you’ll run into a lot less raised eyebrows for mixing a few together. I should note that a shared language family does not indicate a shared ally history; the Huron and Iroquois both shared a language family, but they’re traditionally enemies. They had periods of allyship, but that wasn’t the norm.
Other than that, this doesn’t look appropriative to me because you’re pulling from the entirety of the culture when selecting those animal protectors. The key to at least beginning to respect a culture’s religion (another caution is calling Native American religions “mythologies"— we’re still alive and practicing our traditions!) is to take the whole of it, not just the “cool” or pretty parts.
Of course, the usual cautions of sensitivity readers and making sure you’re not relying on the white versions of our beliefs apply. But as a general rule, if there’s the culture to go along with the creature, you have solid representation.
can you link me Bangtan Bombs, fancams or anything that shows Jikook? It's hard to find them and I don't really wanna look for them in fan made videos or compilations because it's really low quality ;-; any video would do but I hope you can list me some. Thank you <3
Fair warning, there are A LOT of bangtan bombs with jikook so I’ll definitely miss some. Oh who am I kidding, Jikook is everywhere it’s impossible to find them all. Also, these are in no particular order. I just went through all of the Bangtan bombs.
