When Bucky’s phone starts ringing, he knows it’s you for multiple reasons. One, you’re the only person who ever calls him. Two, you programmed his phone to play a specific song whenever you called. He constantly forgets the name of it, but he knows the female singing really likes saying ‘I woke up like this’.

“Are you gonna get that?” Steve asks, gesturing to the ringing device in Bucky’s pocket.

“No,” he responds, silencing his phone the way you taught him to. “I’ll just see her when I get home.”

“Home?” Steve’s lips tilt upwards into a smirk.

“Her home,” Bucky corrects in vain. It’s not a secret that he spends all of his free time with you.

Garry Newlove, a married father of 3, lived in Fernhead, a close-knit community in Warrington, UK.  The area had increasing problems with drunken teens roaming the streets, an issue that came to a head for Garry Newlove on the evening of August 10th, 2007.  After confronting a gang of youths for vandalising his wife’s car, Garry was viciously attacked in front of his home. His 3 daughters witnessed the brutal assault, and tried in vain to ward off their father’s attackers.

After suffering numerous catastrophic head injuries within the space of 2 minutes,  Garry fell into a coma, and his wife Helen made the decision to turn off his life support machine a couple of days later.  Thanks to a number of eyewitness accounts, Adam Swellings, Steven Sorton, and Jordan Cunliffe (aged just 19, 17 and 16 respectively), were soon identified by police. The day of the attack, Swellings had been released on bail for assaulting another man just weeks previously.  Sorton had been identified by police as he was missing one trainer; the other had come off while kicking Garry Newlove in the head. A further 2 assailants were also put before the court, but are unable to be named for legal reasons.

During the trial, the defendants reportedly laughed and joked throughout the Newlove family’s witness testimonies, even dropping off to sleep at points in the proceedings.  However, they soon stopped laughing when all 3 named suspects were found guilty of murder and sentenced to life in prison.

HÉLÈNE KURAGINA THROUGH DIFFERENT TIME PERIODS.

hélène is very much a product of the society around her.    given the rapid changes of society throughout time,    especially considering the culture of the rich,    hélène’s natural characterization will change drastically when placed into different time periods.

her canon era,    taking place in early nineteenth century russia,    sees her as composed and quiet in public.    her paranoia about her image in society keeps her from acting out,    making her seem much more polite and soft to most than she really is out of the public’s eye.    however,    this also has an extremely negative effect on her mental state,    as it forces her to essentially separate her personality into two identities:    the parts of her that she deems acceptable for society and that parts that aren’t.    the silent and calm persona seen in drawing rooms is starkly contrasted by the cruel and vain hélène of her home.    her anger and negative traits are heightened by the inability to show them,    as well as having no healthy way for her to deal with them.

in a modern setting,    hélène would be drastically different.    prim and proper is no longer the image typically of the rich and beautiful in high society.    she would be much more vocal and overall healthier.    she would no longer have to shield her emotions,    at least not as much as she did in canon.    her mental illness would still be an issue,    of course,    but she would also have access to treatment and would be able to actively work on getting better.

word party: 費

費 feì is “to cost” or “to charge,” so it’s pretty straight forward in a word like 免費 miǎnfèi “free of charge” or 浪費 làngfèi "to waste, to squander.“ It’s also really productive as a noun, so here’s a batch of handy nouns (for not really fun things…) :

  • 小費 xiǎofèi "tip” (as in money)
  • 生活費 shēnghuófèi “cost of living”
  • 路費 lù fèi “fare”
  • 學費 xuéfèi “tuition”
  • 水電費  shuǐdiàn fèi “utilities”
  • 費用 fèiyòng “cost, expense”
  • 破費 pòfèi “to spend a lot of money” (破 is “to break,” so think like “breaking the bank”)

bonus:

白 bái as a prefix usually means something was done “in vain.” So if you were trying to meet up with someone but maybe they weren’t home you 白去, “went in vain.” So if you spent something in vain? 白費 báifèi "waste.“ 

One day when I was out riding, I met a very beautiful girl accompanied by an elderly lady. Our eyes met and she made such an impression on me that I reined in my horse to gaze at her as she walked on. Every day I went riding on the same road, at the same hour, hoping to meet the lovely stranger again. I waited in vain and then wended my say way home. But one afternoon the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess Alexander called on us accompanied by their daughter, the Princess Irina. To my surprise and delight I recognised the girl I had met on my ride. This time I had plenty of time to admire the wondrous beauty of the girl who was eventually to become my wife and lifelong companion. She had beautiful features, clear-cut as a cameo, and looked very like her father.
