Your profession is to hunt a undead race of monstrous beings. One evening, after you set up your camp for the night, a old wanderer comes to you. You invite him to stay by your campfire. You have a deep and interesting conversation with him. As it get time to go to sleep, he stands up and wants to go, you insist that he stays, but as he was going away, he reveals himself as one of the leaders of the race you hunt. About what was the conversation and what will you do after the reveal?
You know that verb endings vary, and there are 2 groups of verbs that have different conjugation models. The group is better be learnt together with the verb. But it’s impossible to look into a vocabulary all the time, so there must be some system of how to identify the group.
The first group: - very often has endings of -еть, -ать, -ять in the infinitive - all the verbs that have -овать in the infinitive - all the verbs that have -нуть in the infinitive - two exceptions, that are still the group 1, but end with -ить are “брить” (to shave) and “стелить” (to lay. About cloth: blanket, plaid, tablecloth, rug)
The second group: - all the verbs that end with -ить (but not “брить” and “стелить”) - all of the following verbs: гнать (hunt, race), дышать (breathe), держать (hold, keep), зависеть (depend), видеть (see), слышать (hear), обидеть (offend), терпеть (bear), вертеть (spin), ненавидеть (hate), смотреть (look).
So the Present tense verbs are conjugated in these two ways:
Знать - to know (ends with -ать, so group 1) and Слышать - to hear (also ends with -ать, but it’s one of the exceptions and conjugated as all the -ить verbs - group 2)
Gender And Sexuality Amazing Race Scavenger Hunt/ Amazing Race Help Needed!!!!
Alright, so for a school activity thing, I’m host a workshop on gender and sexuality diversity. My idea was to create a scavenger hunt or amazing race style game so that the participants can learn about various identities as they go along. The problem is that I’m having difficulties coming up with a way of putting it together. I’m looking for any idea’s on how I can make it work!
This will take place in the school. I have a school map that I can use for people to follow if needed. The identities I was looking to include are :
If there are any that you think I’m missing, let me know!!!
Please help me out if you can! I’m gonna tag some people to hopefully get the word out there, I hope you don’t mind.
Ever since she used the Firebird, her parents’ invention, to cross into alternate dimensions, Marguerite has caught the attention of enemies who will do anything to force her into helping them dominate the multiverse—even hurting the people she loves. She resists until her boyfriend, Paul, is attacked and his consciousness scattered across multiple dimensions.
Marguerite has no choice but to search for each splinter of Paul’s soul. The hunt sends her racing through a war-torn San Francisco, the criminal underworld of New York City, and a glittering Paris where another Marguerite hides a shocking secret. Each world brings Marguerite one step closer to rescuing Paul. But with each trial she faces, she begins to question the destiny she thought they shared.
I loved the dimensions they traveled to. It was so cool seeing how different each world is, and how different (or similar) the characters other selves are.
The pacing was great, it was action packed with no dull moments, and the plot was full of twists and turns.
A lot of the characters went through some great character development, and they all seemed more mature by the end of it.
I was happy to see that the non-consensual sex scene was challenged in this book, and that Marguerite realized what she did was wrong.
The ending had an amazing cliffhanger that killed me.
The beginning throws the reader right into an action scene which was pretty off putting to me, and although she was trying to be funny at one point, it felt very cheesy to the point that I was cringing.
The romance was so annoying and bland, and to top it off, it became the focus of the novel. Marguerite was so obsessed with her relationship being ‘fate’ and 'destiny’, it felt like she brought it up on every other page, and because of that I quickly stopped being a fan of her relationship. Also, you hardly ever see Marguerite and Paul together, and that made it even harder for me to believe in their relationship. I honestly almost put this book down so many times because of the romance.
Marguerite frustrated me so much. She was very smug and righteous, thinking that she was so moral because she treated her other selves super well. In actuality, the way she treated her other selves made me feel super uncomfortable. She made huge decisions for her other selves and justified these decisions by saying that they would have done the same thing anyway, or that she was really helping them, when in reality, we don’t actually know those things. So basically, she was doing a bunch of things without her other selves consent.
Overall, I didn’t really enjoy this book, and if it wasn’t for the cliffhanger, I wouldn’t have decided to pick up the third book.
