slavic languages gothic

You see a sentence written in cyrillic. Some of the letters are familiar. You see the meaning shimmering underneath the surface. You almost grasp it, but it slips away. The letters on the page mock you silently.

You know this Czech word. You’ve already learnt it in Polish. It is not the same word. It is a grave insult. Your slavic friends are shocked and embarassed for you when they hear you speak it.

There is a sentence in Croatian. There is a sentence in Serbian. There is a sentence in Bosnian. They are all the same sentence.

You have to write about your day in Slovak. You spend the night polishing the draft. You fail your assigment. It’s written in Czech. You don’t know Czech.

P is not what it seems. You have to remember that.

The Croatian sentence does not mean what the Bosnian sentence means. They both mean the same in Serbian.

That word has a diminutive. The diminutive has its own diminutive. The diminutive of the diminutive also has a diminutive. Nobody knows what the final diminutive of a word is. Some say the knowledge had been lost in centuries past and matrioshkas are the echo, the tangible warning left for us to remember. No living creature should hold the means of diminishing something into nonexistence.
Others say you may still find some of them in old soviet textbooks, if you dare to look in abandoned schools of Chernobyl.

Someone is speaking to you. Is that a he or a she? You aren’t sure. It’s an abstract concept. Why does it have gender.

You see a word in a dictionary. It has seventeen letters and only one vowel. You close the dictionary very carefully not looking at the phonetic transcription. The shape of it haunts you in your sleep. You wake up face damp with tears, a bitter taste on your tongue. The clock blinks 3:03AM. You do not dare look up that word again.

This word means the same thing in the five slavic languages you’re familiar with. You use it in the sixth one. That word does not exist in this language. It never did. There is now a word-shaped void in the fabric of this language. The natives look at you uneasily. There is a new quality to the silence and your palms start to sweat.

H is not H. H is not H. H is not H. H is not H.

One day you flip through your dictionary. A page is missing. What was the word? You can’t remember. There is pressure building at the back of your head. The clock blinks 3:03AM.

You write my name is in cyrillic. There are shadows dancing on the walls. They grow longer with each letter you write down. It is not cyrillic you’re using. You keep writing my name is. The shadows now bleed from the tip of your pen. It’s irrelevant. You need to remember the right letters.

N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not… If only you could remember the letters. The letters are important. What was it, that wasn’t N?

There are nine different prefixes you can add to a verb to change its meaning. There are fifty three different suffixes you have to add to a verb to make it work. In the end the only thing left of the original is a vague shape of one of its middle consonants. You can feel the anguish radiating from the verb’s mutialted form. A desperate sob escapes through your clenched teeth. You’re so, so sorry, you didn’t meant to. You didn’t. It doesn’t matter.

You now read a text in Russian. You’ve never learnt Russian. Why are you reading that text? The words burn your eyes, the meaning searing your mind.

There’s a shot of vodka in front of you. You don’t drink alcohol. You don’t care. All existence is meaningless, your soul’s in eternal pain. A broken matrioshka lays at your feet. There is no salvation, she says boring into your eyes. You open your mouth to answer, but there is only a burst of harsh rustle. It dies in whispering echoes a moment later. Your glass is empty again.

If the art was that good people would see it anyway. Without the artist needing to reblog it 100 times

I see you’re stemming from liv’s @larvesta own answer about this and I’m not gonna lie, I’m really hesitant about saying anything on the matter bc i don’t do this kind of thing but I realise people actually think this way so here’s a proper answer. 

It doesn’t work that way. I should know, I should really know. People here on Tumblr get lucky often and you wouldn’t think that, especially if you don’t create content yourself. Things just don’t become popular all of a sudden, most of the time it needs to get reblogged by the right person and add the balance between having good content yourself as well as an ongoing status as a creator. Not to mention how you go about treating your followers, your personality and how you act here. And you’ll tell me; “But people with good art have so many notes! It must be because they’re good! See, you don’t need to reblog it so many times!”

I hope you know what it feels like to be an artist here because I do. I especially do. I have talked, reblogged, supported, and have met so many, too many artists here, some insanely obscure. Some whose work looks like it took so many hours and has very little over 50 notes; my work included. And I can tell you now that I can personally handpick and tell you that some of the work I’m most proud of and have took many hours on are not over 200 notes. I’m not saying I’m frustrated by that, because some of us are reassured in our skill but let me tell you that every time I think of a fellow artist out there who releases amazing art and earns very little notes who looks at their note count and wonders if they are good enough, my heart breaks. And there’s young artists who are still getting by, who are not as good yet but took the same amount of effort and time, they deserve to be cheered on. 

Because people think artists here are machines, capable of creating content without regards to who actually appreciates it. No one is like that, artists are fragile just like everyone else and people really forget that. They really do. 

People don’t just see the art out of nowhere, do you understand the huge amount in this platform? There’s millions of work everywhere, you need to be supported to be seen, you need to withstand the thousands of others around you and you might have to create something that’s away from the norm to stand out, you might have to take hours of your time. You don’t know unless you really indulge yourself this platform, you don’t know unless you yourself do work for more than four hours, no breaks and absolutely tired, and look at your note count to see a disheartening number. You have no idea, you really don’t.

And don’t guilt them, please. I could reblog my art so many times, but sometimes the thougt of ‘maybe it gets annoying’ always bears in my mind, artists are made to feel like it’s okay that they’re not being appreciated. I’m proud of those who reblog their art because they know they deserve better, and guess what? They do.  

There’s a difference between good content and popular content, popular content aimed towards a specific audience that you know will like and reblog that. Good content is a dangerous hit and miss. I really appreciate people who do art for things that are not popular, because sometimes they really do have to rely solely on their skills. I say it’s a dangerous hit and miss because you know it might not have that specific audience, but you still take the effort and time into it anyway. Imagine that; knowing something is popular but going for the alternative anyway; taking time, taking effort, putting your all into it. That’s absolutely insane, man. Imagine knowing you can put that time and effort into something popular that might attract way more notes, but still doing something else for the sake of that something else. 

Also there’s the matter of timezones, in which there’s a worldly concept that everyone is in different times and not everyone is here at the same time to see the same content. I don’t want to explain this; please at least understand the concept of time. 

Artists reblog their work because they want others to see it, to appreciate it. Because sometimes it’s the only way others can. Reblogging their own work is an artist’s way of supporting themselves and you think I’m going to let you let them think that that’s a bad thing? That they’re not allowed to do that? Go home, buddy. 

I don’t have anything against anyone, I just wrote this realising that people actually think this is actually how it works and even then, I don’t have anything against you, maybe you’re just misinformed, some just don’t know enough about this to really understand. 

So here it is buds: support artists supporting themselves. It’s as simple as that.

anonymous asked:

Hello! I'm a little nervous to ask this but I'm new to the Hannibal fandom or Hannibal in general and I've seen bits of amazing interpretations/analysis/meta here and there but I want to catch up with everything and don't really know where to start... Is there any masterpost or could you recommend me other blogs beside yours or just give me a general direction of where to look etc.? (I know this is a weird ask, I hope you understand what I mean and thank you for listening)

Haha, you shouldn’t have said “everything”! XD

My first and foremost recommendation is always #hannibal meta. Below are directions for how to look up posts before any date and time, which I recommend for getting back to the posts that came out while the show was airing. Usually, meta blossomed from right before the show started airing each season to about three months afterward, and then it would subside to lower levels with more speculation (and more drama XD) during hiatus. But you can find most everything still by just searching the tag, and it might be fun to read what people were saying as they were experiencing it. 

How to go to any date in general tumblr tags

just figured this out and i’m super excited~~~

So you know when you’re reading through general tumblr tags and the url looks like this (this is the url going one page back in that tag, from today, 3/30/2013):

http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/one%20direction?before=1364690010

Turns out the number at the end means something, and can be changed so you can go to the general tumblr tags for any date you specify.

For instance, if I want to go the one direction tag as of January 1, 2012, I would go to http://www.timestampgenerator.com, enter the date, and this number would be generated:

1325406095

I replace the number in the above url with this number, to get this url:

http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/one%20direction?before=1325406095

And now I can see everything people tagged with “one direction” around the time of January 1, 2012. If you care about the exact timing, remember to specify your time zone (in GMT +/-x) and take note of the time zone that shows up by default on posts in dashboard mode (in xkit, you can set the time zone to your own with the ‘timestamp’ extension, other scripts and extensions may work differently).

What this number means (roughly) is the number of seconds that have passed since midnight January 1, 1970, GMT. It is also called Unix time and is a standard way of calculating timestamps for anything that is unix-based.

(x)

So just replace the example address above with “www.tumblr.com/tagged/hannibal%20meta?before=“ plus whatever number the timestamp generator gives you, and you can look at all the Hannibal meta that existed up to that date (I assume without posts or blogs that have been since deleted).

For fun, you could do it with #hannibal or with #hannigram, too. This could be a good throwback Thursday kind of activity.

Some blogs:

@22drunkb (she has her own masterpost, very organized, makes the rest of us look bad)

@genufa (I think she has a masterpost of just a few things, and then from there I suspect her tagging system is even worse than mine)

@existingcharactersdiehorribly (comprehensively tags, but I don’t think indexes…the mysteries of her tagging system have never been revealed to me)

A couple of the oldest meta blogs have deleted, so I can’t help you there, and there have been a few spectacular posts from people just wandering through, so the tag would be your best bet for that. 

Quite a few members of the fandom who are primarily fic writers or gif makers or artists or whatever dabble in meta fairly regularly. I don’t think I could give a comprehensive list without leaving people out, so I won’t try.  XD But you’ll see them in the tags or in the comments of the posts in the tags, so you’ll find them. 

Good luck and welcome!

Biggest mistake I ever made, when going to the other side of tumblr to search for some Harry Potter analysis and saw "Snape was [insert some wannabe, poorly written without any texual evidence claims]" I legit rolled my eyes so many times that I'm cross-eyed. A popular theme seems to be Snape was a {nazi} abusive teacher. Is it weird that i don't find him that particularly nasty? I've had worse teachers tbh. In fact I don't remember Snape ever hitting a student or phsycially abusing them...

It’s the saddest thing about the divisions in fandom, to me, to be honest.  I generally post about Snape, and when I post about other characters, I generally post about them through Snape’s lens - so I am very aware that there’s 90% of Potter that I just don’t remotely touch.

And I am certain, given the meta that we all come up with in our part of fandom, that fandom is just as active for other characters - and I am sure there are interpretations and revelations in the story when seen through the lens of other characters that I haven’t thought of, and would be genuinely enlightened by.

…it’s just, I don’t bother to look for it, because I know when a blogger offers their view with a side of ridiculous fanon-based Snape hate, I can’t take the rest of their discourse seriously.

I don’t have a problem with someone disliking Snape for canon reasons, and I don’t have a problem with someone finding his teaching style appalling…I think the difficulty, for me, is twofold:

1)  it’s the application of current standards to a historical situation…Snape’s behaviour it seems, is far worse by today’s standards than it was in the 90s; I don’t think he was intended to be a ‘child abuser’ - he was just nasty.  

2)  it’s the vacuum in which the critique takes place.  Rarely do you see anyone evaluating all of the Hogwarts staff, or accepting that other teachers behave in ways that are as flawed as Snape’s actions, or interrogating the behaviour of other adults in the series.  Snape is held up on his own as the example of all that is horrendous in the series.

And even that I don’t have a problem with, as long as it’s tagged as anti - and then at least I don’t have to look at it.

one of the worst things i've seen on tumblr is how biased their views on racism are, basically i saw a post where it said black people were more oppressed then any other race in history & they were using the whole slavery thing to guilt people into feeling bad for it then someone pointed out that there have been other countries with slavery/who still have slavery that were more oppressed(south east asians) but apparently they didn't count bc they weren't black/ethnic enough. i hate tumblr.

Literally, the word “slave” get its roots from the word “Slav”. Y’know, Slavic people. Who are from Europe. And are white.

But no, it’s obviously only black people who can complain about slavery.

Everytime i see a post saying "bilinguals don't switch/confuse languages" i feel like an idiot because i can speak/write in 3 languages (fluently!!! Like, i've been learning since i was 3!!) But sometimes i do confuse them like one time i was talking to my german friend and then i ramdomly told him something in romanian???? He looked so confused and i was like "what?? Did i do domething??" Like damn am i just stupid or??? Does anyone else get it???

Dude I relate to this!! Except like in the opposite way? I speak 4 languages. I took 4 years of Russian and 6 years of French, so I’m decent in both of those. English is technically my second language, but I feel like it’s my first? It’s my major in school, and definitely the language I’m best at. I was born in Bulgaria. Bulgarian was my first language - I speak it fluently, I can read and write okay, and while I was there during the summers I passed through 4th grade, but we moved to the US when I was two and a half, so I definitely make a lot of mistakes. Because of that, I second guess myself a lot. We have accents and vowel sounds that sound moderately similar, and even when they don’t, even when I know I’m right, I convince myself I’m wrong while writing. I watched La La Land with my grandma a few weeks ago, and translated while reading the English subtitles, and I actually did a really good job! She even cried at the end, lol. But a common issue for me was the fact that I would go to say a Bulgarian word, and then I’d be like “naaaahhhh, that’s not a real Bulgarian word, is it? Is it an English word that I’m convincing myself is a Bulgarian word by saying it in a Bulgarian accent?” And honestly every time I second guessed, I was right, and it was indeed an actual Bulgarian word. 
That said, I don’t think I’ve ever responded to a friend in Bulgarian? Unless I was on the phone with my mom and just talked back to my friend in it my accident if I was being talked to at the same time? While trying to speak Russian I often accidentally switch to French or Bulgarian, lol, because Russian is my weakest least-familiar language. I associate French with Russian, because I was learning them at the same time, and I associate Bulgarian with Russian because they’re very similar languages (which is actually why I took Russian i the first place lol). When writing Russian I tend to spell things wrong sometimes because I’ll spell something the Bulgarian way, or I’ll just forget how to spell it in Russian. (I also drop accents all the time in French, and my verb endings can be a bit of a tragedy :/)
My most common problem, however, is speaking Bulgarian, and accidentally switching into English. When I speak English to my parents, I speak in their Bulgarian accent, and all of us often pepper in Bulgarian words, and create out own little combo language. So any time I try to speak Bulgarian to my parents, I often slip into that English, and same goes for them. That happens with my brother, too. In most situations, it’s usually because I can’t think of a word in Bulgarian, so I switch languages to accommodate it.
There are rare instances, however, where I don’t know English words for things. Like, I’m far more knowledgeable on the names of car parts in Bulgarian than I am in English. Also spices, herbs, and flowers. Actually, no, that’s a lie probably. I know a lot of names in both, I just don’t know their counterpart? Like, when we cook food, sometimes we use джоджен (djodjen), and until I googled it just now, I would never have been able to tell you that that is mint. I’m actually deeply shocked, because we also have мента (menta), which is also mint, so I’m not sure what the difference is?? Is one supposed to be peppermint?? ( @snaps7 or @justbooklover do you know??) Alas, I digress. The point is, sometimes I don’t know English words for things, or I do know the English word and it has suddenly left my brain (which totally happens to everyone in their native language, don’t even lie.) and it’s in situations like those when the Bulgarian word hops in, and takes over, and then I’m like no no, and then another English word pops in, and it’s about 5 years later when I suddenly remember.
The common example of this that I’ve seen on tumblr is “what’s that word again? y’know, for people stealing??” and as I’m trying to remember, the Bulgarian word would go through my head, and then I’d probably move back into English and be like “Baby snatching?? No. And it’s not babysitting either, obviously.” And then I would proceed to repeat babysitting to myself because it’s all I can think of because I’m dumb. And then I will give up, and then a while later, all of a sudden, “KIDNAPPING! THE WORD IS KIDNAPPING!”
So I guess in all of this, what I’m trying to say is that I never really accidentally speak in my other languages, or specifically my secondary language (I’m referring to Bulgarian as my secondary language, because in all honesty, as sad as that makes me, it definitely is at this point), I guess, which is why I relate in the opposite. I do it under very specific circumstances.
1) If I’m already speaking it to some capacity, like if I’m on the phone with my mom while one of my friends is trying to talk to me, or if I’m slipping in and out of Bulgarian to talk to my brother about a movie.
Or 2) If I’m reaching for a word, and I start to doubt myself and my knowledge - that’s where I trip up. And the sad part is that if I can’t think of a word in Bulgarian, I just sort of sift through other words to go around them - which is a bad habit, but hey, it works! So if I can’t think of the word kidnap in Bulgarian, or if I’m not sure I can spell it, I usually would just be like “they stole him away!” or something like that, so if you have this problem too, not gonna lie that’s a pretty good method (although simply expanding your vocabulary is probably the better more difficult option :/)
All of that said, you’re totally not stupid. The fact that you can speak 3 languages fluently clearly proves that you’re anything but!! Everyone messes up I know plenty of people who speak only English and do so with terrible grammar, and they honestly have no excuses. And you know what, you may have answered your friend in Romanian, but I bet it was freakin’ perfect Romanian. Most of the time, we think about what we want to say, and our brain talks to our mouth, and everything works out the way it should. Other times, our mouth just kinda says fuck it and runs away. For most people, this means rambling, or word vomit, or suddenly losing the capability to speak properly for whatever reason. For people who know multiple languages, sometimes that means bursting out in another language, and that’s totally okay! Own it! My friends always get really excited when they hear my speak Bulgarian, and I bet yours probably dig the Romanian too :) You should always be proud that you can speak three languages fluently.

@snaps7 @justbooklover @wrathofabooklover and any one else who speaks multiple languages - any thoughts on the subject? What are your experiences?

I was hoping I could hear your thoughts on the racism that Ward himself has personally displayed. I've seen his misogyny discussed by a lot of people, but I don't think I have seen anyone talking about his abuse of people of colour (his sexual abuse of Skye, May, and Kara, his complicity in the torture and dehumanization of Mike Peterson).

HELL yes, anon! yeah let’s absolutely talk about this because it’s important. ward? he’s a fucking racist. surprise! i mean, no, obviously it’s not a surprise. it’s not a surprise at all. and don’t let any apologists tell you otherwise. because ward? i fully believe this dude is a white supremacist.

first and foremost, hydra. i’ve already discussed why it’s not relevant that ward was never a “true believer.” it’s irrelevant. the dude’s hydra. no, not now more than ever. he’s been hydra. he just took a break to murder his family and take advantage of a vulnerable woman. “oh he’s just using hydra for his own gain!” how convenient! that sounds an awful lot like… he’s hydra! this argument hinges on the fact that hydra, well, they’re basically neo-nazis. because they are. they weren’t. in the 40s they were just plain nazis.

let’s talk about not being a “twoo believer.” right? because he wasn’t! and that’s fine (still hydra, though). while he was “using hydra for his own gain,” he was also using hydra for john garrett’s own gain. garrett? yep! also hydra. so… super hydra. as we all remember, garrett was “the clairvoyant.” garrett was sad that shield was shield and left him injured in the field so the dude was like, centipede project? i’m all about this! who are the lovely centipede “recruits” that we know? akela amador, mike peterson, and chan ho yin. ALL PEOPLE OF COLOR. ward was COMPLICIT in this. ward knew the WHOLE TIME what they were doing to akela, mike, and chan ho yin. the episode the bridge? ward knew the WHOLE TIME mike was being controlled by garrett. he literally had to pretend he was shocked! garrett literally controlled mike and akela’s lives until they had the backscatter implant removed. he literally took their agency from them. and ward knew the whole time. the fact that this was backed by hydra, the nazis? means garrett and ward are racist shitstains. even after chan ho yin was killed and akela amador was freed, ward continually called mike a “thing” or a “robot,” which is really fucking rich coming from him. ward was down for this. he was a part of making mike deathlok. he’s disgusting and has no right.

as far as the women go, nonwhite women often experience misogyny that is also tied into racism. we’ll call it racialized misogyny because that’s what it is. has ward ever been like, “oh skye should be sexually submissive because she’s asian” or “i have yellow fever” or “i love fiery latinxs”? nah. but he doesn’t have to. consider how he completely disregards not just human life, but especially lives of people of color. it’s not exactly a leap to assume that ward forcefully tried to control three women of color sexually. it’s not a leap to believe that it’s because he truly believes himself to be such a hot shit alpha white dude, especially considering brett dalton himself has whined that may’s line about ward never being on top was “the most emasculating thing [he’s] ever heard.” which… i just ate popcorn for lunch and i may hork it back up. like, the context? it’s beyond fucked up. it doesn’t even need unpacking. it’s pretty cut and dry. not to mention that dalton truly believes that his character did these women a favor by making them “stronger” through abusing them.

tl;dr: yep! ward is a white supremacist. he completely disregards the lives of people of color, was complicit in the agency stripping of akela amador and mike peterson, didn’t give a fuck about chan ho yin, and believes he’s the white man every woman needs.

mesemania  asked:

can you or someone you know explain me why are Clint and Natasha soulmates? i've seen on Tumblr many people saying this. but i'm not really familiar with the comics. i'm currently reading captain america vol 5 so i don't know much about comic Clint but Bucky seems more - at least so far - like a soulmate to Nat for me because of their backstory

Oh, my friend, you have come to the right place.

First, let me be clear that my ship to end all ships is ClintBarton/Phil Coulson, and that my number one Natasha Romanoff ship is NatashaRomanoff/Bucky Barnes. Despite these ships Clint Barton and Natasha Romanoff will always be soulmates to me. Why? Why are these two dorks soulmates?

Rules to KS

Disclaimer: Don’t kill the messenger (that’s all I am in this post) , these are just what I took from the complaints,disagreements, and other comments here and there that i’ve seen in the tags and in post comments..to some extent I have exaggerated them..to some extent. This post is not any of my beliefs and was used with sarcastic language .if you don’t speak it and wanna argue then don’t come over here friend :) #readingisfundamental.. If you planned on being curious in the tags or wanted to join the fandom then I hope this post finds you first before the real discourse lol

Rule 1). Don’t like KS. Fuck is wrong with you? Fuck the author (make sure to note that Koogi needs to be called out for this mess of a story) and fuck you. period.point blank. end of discussion. For if ye do, thy must commit thyself to the finest casket made of sheep wool to lie dead in, for eternity (In simple english: Go die, perish, poof bam be gone)

Rule 2). Don’t discuss the differences between reality and fiction. That’s such a shit excuse like don’t you fucking dare! Because we all know that after reading this shit manhwa you’ll become like sangwoo (picks up phone to dial police cause they need to arrest y’all asses ASAP)

Rule 10.5). Whatever do you mean about there being an anti ks and discourse tag? It is a must and one’s duty to continue to repeat and discuss their dislike for KS and the fandom in the actual killing stalking tag. You know. gotta make motherfuckas aware of how they are damaging society and ruining lives. #doingGodswork

Rule 20). You must acknowledge that the KS tumblr fandom is fucking sick, a sick fucking joke (completely ignores the instagram fandom and the lack of chill they have lol)

Rule 30.5). EVERYONE and I do mean EVERYONE that is dumb enough to be in this fandom (and still ignored rule #1) are just a bunch of straight cis female women girls.

Rule 41). Being as it may that you have ignored rule number 1, then at least acknowledge that Yoonbum is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Please don’t come over here talking about his so called “past choices”…stalker my ass, he is soo pure xoxoxo and that beast Sangwoo ughh. Did you guys see in Chapter 1 when Sangwoo grabbed Bum off the streets of Seoul into his nasty ass home like the nasty motherfucker he is?!…he’s been stalking bum…wow free the fuck outta him

Rule 2001). Speaking of this Sangdoodoo, being that some of y’all have ignored rule # 41, let me just let you know how fucking gross it is to actually like this man, some of y’all with your excuses like “ he’s just such a well written character that’s why i like him” you’re a liar. Then you got the other ones who try to make it seem like they just like him for his physical aspects..umm you’re a fucking liar too. Sangwoo is only “loved” because of how violent he is towards Bum, you guys fucking get off to him abusing Bum plz stop lying

Rule 2000). Please note that Sangwoo is a boring villian trope. There are better villains than him, like dora the explorer edward cullen, elmo, winnie the poo, that 50 shades of character MC..yeah

Rule 20.02). Yoonbum was never thirsty for any kind of dick. Sangwoo been ready to put out, you remember in chapter 1 when Sangwoo said that he wondered what Yoonbum’s sex was like as he stared at him in the classroom? yeah…exactly so stfu

Rule 1992). Bum’s Uncle > Sangwoo because at least his uncle didn’t sexually assault him (Messenger note : I have actually seen someone comment that bum’s uncle is greater than sangwoo..I am not exaggerating)

Rule 1980s). Don’t imply that Sangwoo is to be any kind of daddy, dad as fuck, pappy, papa, tu papa, or la casa. It gives off the vibe that you too want your legs broken and that you think him as your biological father, it will not be seen as a joke so just stop

Rule 1999). Stop saying that you wanna see Sangwoo lose his shit. What you should be saying is how bad you wanna throw him in the trash can set him a flame, bring him back to life, chop him up, put him back together, let Bum kick him with his light up sneakers and then toss him into Korea’s seas :)

Rule 2003). Respect and love Officer Seungbae. (Messenger note: This is the easiest rule to follow if ignored rule #1 of course)

Rule 3005). IF YOU HAVE IGNORED EVERY ONE OF THESE RULES (maybe except rule # 2003..if you don’t like him then “oh shit yo”) THEN THERE IS REASON AS TO WHY YOU HAVE BEEN SEEN AS THE LOWEST OF THE LOW BECAUSE THERE IS A HIGH PROBABILITY THAT YOU SHIP THE FORSAKEN NAME THAT ONE MUST NOT SPEAK OF. You have lost your ultimate mind. Sangwoo> said ship. you really fucked up now. Anti KS will curse your name and family and Anti “cursed ship’s name” will abandon you. I hope you have your casket prepared.

Thank you.

Listen, I love the “mmm watcha say” meme as much as the next person, but let’s take a moment to remember that it comes from a legitimately really well written song. That oddly has not been ruined by this meme, imo. If you’ve never listened to it, do yourself a favor. 

Things about the MBTI types I know irl.
  • (I'm an INFJ, by the way.)
  • ISFJ: Actually the kindest, most socially graceful person I know. Has their nose to the grindstone 24/7 and always directs their full energy to things. Full of puns. Loves All Time Low. They seem to have the dirt on EVERYONE, except they don't tell unless that person is a jerk. So every now and then they let us in on some major shit. Oh, and an anecdote: my insides literally twisted when I had to tell them that the password I set for the squad's online CAH game was "titty.5" i.e. "titty point five"
  • ESFJ: A sinful indulger in the waluigi meme and a huge fan of Ed Sheeran, her salt level is the highest I've ever seen. She's great at doing impressions, and is a person who seems to have knowledge about a lot of things. Is not good at faking laughs. Went to zombie laser tag and screamed the entire time. Her sneezes will literally shake the foundations of your house. Oh and she bakes really, really well! She made brownies from scratch and I think an angel cried.
  • INTJ: She once said I was reserved but "wonderfully caustic". And it seemed like she admired me? Either way, I admired her because she's really a whole lot better at translating her thoughts into words than I ever was. At first we were pretty chill, but it turns out she isn't very nice to people she doesn't think are "wonderfully caustic" so I haven't been in contact with her lately. She has slanted handwriting, likes cheese, and she wears her hair in braids a lot. One time she said "owie" and I remember thinking it was cute.
  • ENFP: He's really optimistic about everything, seems to have the idea that everyone can just be happy if they have the right mindset, and likes to be liked by everyone. He has a few nicknames, except no one really calls him by them because he's the one who made them up. For halloween one year his costume involved glitter, and he was covered in traces of it for the next three weeks. He wore this really punk sweatshirt once, which he got from a rapper that spit some bars at his church.
  • ENTP: My history teacher. He's not awful but he's not the best at it either. (Still a fun class though!) He makes interesting comparisons, is good at finding logical inconsistencies, tells a lot of stories from his life, and shoots students with a nerf gun when they fall asleep in class. I was assigned a seat in the front and center of the room, and one time during a test he put on some lotion and did the hand-rub thing right in my face and it was mad awkward.
  • ISTP: He's rude without realizing it quite often; I found him intimidating at first. (You kind of have to get used to him.) He's a lot taller than me, so I would hold onto the back of his shirt in the hallways. A lot of times, when someone tells me some random fact they found out, in the back of my head I'm thinking "I think ISTP might've told me that once in like, third grade...?" In kindergarten he publicly condemned the nursery rhyme where the cow jumps over the moon for being "unrealistic and plain silly". For a 9th grade art project he sculpted the Ringworld.
  • ESTP: Really fun guy to be around to be honest. Interesting to talk to because he knows a little bit of everything, and he's super hilarious. Pretty argumentative and could be abrasive sometimes, though. When he was out of school after having his appendix removed, he sent a robot in his place (he controlled it from his house and received audio and video from it; basically went to school through video chat). He really likes cats and has nice eyebrows. One time he paid someone fifty cents to eat a banana peel.
  • ESFP: She's really eccentric in the most beautiful way. So genuine and so sassy. Remembers things /very/ vividly. When she's trying to describe a person, she would describe their shoes first for some reason. Has a very energetic puppy that makes gurgling sounds. We became close friends because we sat next to each other in algebra and bonded over our repeated failures to understand.
  • ESTJ: He's an incredible artist, and he dyes streaks in his hair a lot and it looks really cool. He has a pretty quick temper, and doesn't really mind breaking rules that don't make sense to him. He's got neat, loopy handwriting and an incredibly clean room. Talks a lot, and really fast. Calls himself an asshole, but I say he's a genuinely good person. For a few months he wore this mood ring made of cheap metal that stained his finger. Doesn't have a tumblr, but if he did he'd be a huuuge piece of meme trash.

anonymous asked:

I saw on tumblr a part of a comic where Raph is upset because he is craving a mother figure but none of his brothers seem to care, but April is there to comfort him. Besides seeing that, I wouldn't have pegged him down to crave a mother figure. What are your thoughts on him and his family craving a mother and closeness?

Hi there, anon! First off, I assume this is the comic part you’re talking about:

We’re gonna get to that real soon.

Because I don't think I've ever seen this for Jon/Sansa: accidental-baby-acquisition :)

When the news comes that Jon and his men have been spotted on the King’s Road, Sansa is ready. She’s been waiting for this moment since the day he left. A quarrel between Karstaks and Umbers had turned into something more, with the free folk taking advantage of the bickering lords to do some raiding. The Lord of Winterfell had been called upon to settle things, and Jon never shirked his duties, riding north with his men to end the dispute and the raids as peacefully as possible.

Three moons later, and Sansa was still waiting for her lord husband to return. But now she waits no longer, and she rounds up the children to tell them Father is returning, making sure they’re all ready to greet Jon when he arrives.

She waits in the yard, children by her side, as the call comes to open the gate. Ned is fidgeting impatiently and the girls are bickering over whose gown Father will like best, and Daeron is fussing in her arms when Jon rides up, Ghost trotting alongside his horse, his men following behind.

The children immediately dash for their father, not waiting for him to dismount as they begin yelling and tugging at his legs, but Sansa stands frozen in place, struck by the bundle in Jon’s arm.

OKAY. I have gotten about nine thousand questions from people about Eliza’s tweet here: 

and how it can be interpreted as shade. 

I think a lot of the reason people are saying it wasn’t is due to her follow-up tweet here:

I totally see why there are people who wonder if Eliza’s original tweet is shade at all due to that last line: “Means we did our job.” 

But remember back before the episode aired?

Jason was pushing fans to watch live, and I can’t find the tweet right now but there was another one where he said, “If you only watch one episode live, 3x07 is the one!” or something to that effect. 

Eliza livetweeted with us the week before for the previous episode. Then this one, she and many of the cast mysteriously missed it. Then she says, “I’m SO sad I missed it!” Then there’s “The response has been amazing! You guys are so passionate!” 

The response? You mean the overwhelmingly negative reaction to Lexa’s death, not just from Clexakru, but from both sides of the fandom? Now, I can’t say I’ve been as deeply involved in any other fandom but I have never seen a fandom explode like this following a character death before. (I suppose maybe Red Wedding compares but that’s GOT and GOT’s fanbase is on a whole other level.)

#The100 trended for a couple hours. Lexa trended for 15 hours following the episode with over 300k tweets. Lexa deserved better trended yesterday for 8 hours straight with over 100k tweets. The response Eliza is referring to? That response is “Jason, you fucked up.” 

But, as Lindsey reminded us with her tweets… They have contracts. They have obligations. They’re not allowed to say or do certain things because these are their jobs on the line. 

Which is why, to me, that follow-up tweet is not Eliza brushing off the reaction to Lexa’s death. It’s her saying, “Yes. I’m heartbroken. But this is my job.” Means we did our job. It was out of her hands. It was out of Kim’s hands. It was out of Layne’s. This was on Jason. 

If that is not enough to convince you, remember during hiatus. Remember following the Clexa kiss. Remember how overwhelmingly proud Eliza was of Clexa. Remember how much she stanned Lexa’s character and the Clexa ship and ask yourself, do you really think the #1 Clexa stan was happy with the way things played out? 

If even that doesn’t convince you… remember this post (x). Look at how the cast has reacted to this. Look at how much support they’ve thrown out. Look at Kim’s tumblr. Look at Layne’s. 

At the end of the day, Jason is still Eliza’s boss. He is still their employer. But they are just as upset as we are. 

edit: thanks to @commanderofraccoons for pointing this out:

yeah. eliza’s with us.

anonymous asked:

i don't know if you've already answered this but how do you feel about the 'oh my god i was friendzoned' phase Adam had with Blue? I've seen so little discussion about this on tumblr and that's always bothered me because this is kind of a big aspect of Adam's characterization.

I’m not sure I would agree with that wording, anon. It is true that Adam pushes Blue to a next level of relationship that she is clearly not comfortable with. It is also true that he seems to sense, several times, that not only does Gansey like Blue but that Blue likes Gansey. It’s true that he does not react very well in the moment, when Blue finally breaks up with him (if it can even be called that). But to call it a phase, or even to use the phrase “Oh My God I was Friendzoned” suggests that Adam made it A Thing … and he really didn’t? In fact, their break up and Ronan’s rejection of Kavinsky include the exact same phrasing of “It was never going be be you and me,” only serving to highlight in fact how comparatively little a deal he makes of it when you consider Kavinsky’s response was to keep texting, keep pressing, and then ultimately kidnap and threaten murder on a loved one. 

I mean, I understand where you’re coming from. Adam does try to force her to be physical, partly because he wants it and partly to prove he is not just a friend but a Proper Boyfriend. He also doubles down on this, when she says that her kiss would kill her true love, either hoping that her reluctance to kiss him means there might be feelings or because that’s how badly he needs to be kissed right then–and that is not okay. Blue knows it, and denies him, and even later when she starts to regret having to hurt him, it’s never in the sense that maybe she should have kissed him. It’s in the sense that maybe she should have tried harder to make it work. 

That’s an important thing to remember though, because while Adam simply isn’t what she wants, it’s important to acknowledge that Blue figured that out. She knows she likes Gansey, but tells herself she doesn’t. Then she knows she likes Gansey, but tells herself she won’t, because Adam. It’s inevitable that she gets to the point where she knows she likes Gansey, and knows she needs to end it. It’s also understandable, sure, but it being so doesn’t make it any less confusing for Adam. It’s not like he was just being friendly to Blue and all of a sudden demanded romance. He asked her out, and she said yes. They were dating, ostensibly, however short-lived it was and however ill-suited and ill-timed it turned out to be. Adam may not handle the relationship well–hell, arguably he shoots himself in the foot several times, making it that much easier for Blue to pull away–but his wants are not unrealistic. Merely selfish and occasionally ignorant of why it is he feels so insistent and why it is Blue isn’t required or going to give in.

Plus, let’s consider Adam’s overall response. He doen’t keep harping on it. He leaves her be. He has a mantra, reminding himself not to argue with Blue, and when he needs help, after a respectful period of time, he asks her and tries to listen and consider when she explains why it is it upsets her to be catcalled even though he admits privately that he doesn’t really get it. He doesn’t (or hasn’t yet at least) apologize to her or verbalize anything specific about the break up, but he does respect her decision post the initial upset. That doesn’t strike me as the rage of the friend-zoned. Remorse of an ass, maybe, but other than that, it’s the pretty normal aftermath of a short-term relationship where one party was definitely more interested than the other and is also actually in hindsight not that torn up about it either.

I don't think I've ever heard of how you and Byrd met. Has this story been told before? If so, I'm sorry 🙈

Oh man I’m pretty sure glihter hates when I tell this story

Because Byrd was the one who HIT ON ME FIRST.

It was a few months ago and I was getting a lot of random adds on Snapchat as a result of my tumblr going bonkers, and I was just kinda adding people whenever because who cares? So one day I get a few snaps from a username I’d never seen before, and I open it up..

And it’s this adorable little creature smiling at the camera and bathing in sunlight. They were smiling and almost kind of winking at me, and there were more than a few snapchats waiting for me that were all kind of vague and flirty in tone.

That’s RIGHT, ladies and gentlemen. Byrd basically tried to slide up in them DMs.

So it’s really not like me to snap strangers back, but I did because.. well I want to say it was because I knew we’d have a connection but in reality it’s just because Byrd was fine as hell.

From there we started snpchatting back and forth (with me feverishly checking my snapchat every 10 minutes to see whether or not they’d snapped me back) until I made the INCREDIBLY reckless decision to send a hot stranger my number through Snapchat.

I knew I liked them, but I still remember when I knew I was in love. 

I was packing to move with my family to a different spot in Brooklyn, and my internet was still working even though I didn’t have access to cable or my television, so I was skyping random people while I was packing to help the time pass quicker. I asked Bluebird if they wanted to skype and they said yes, and I remember being SO fucking nervous while I was waiting for their call.

I mean, I was messy and packing up all my shit and I was like “I wonder if I look okay” bitch no I didn’t look okay I was sweaty and my hair looked vaguely like an angry hedgehog was caught in a rainstorm

But the second Byrd was on skype with me, the second we started talking and I really got to see them.. I was hooked. Completely and totally. I didn’t want anyone else after that.

Side note, I thought Byrd looked cute when they laughed so that entire first hour-long conversation was me just firing off jokes left and right so I could see how nice their smile is.

fucking nailed it

anonymous asked:

Excuse me for asking this but I'm new to fandom and tumblr and I've been seeing a lot of people say that all Olicity shippers don't care about Diggle at all and only see him as an Olicity shipper but really don't give two shits about him or his character development and that it's because he's black or whatever. I ship Olicity but I love Diggle and care about him just as much as I do Oliver and Felicity and as much as I adore Olicity I still care about Diggle too. Hope this isn't true.

First of all, thank you for the ask. Welcome to the fandom, Noonie. The Olicity fandom is by far the best fandom I’ve ever seen. I’ve been a TV addict all my life and I can honestly say that I’ve never been this invested in a show before; and it’s all because of the beautiful Arrow/Olicity fans. 

Second of all, this is absolutely not true. Not even in the slightest. I am not exaggerating when I say that to this day I have yet to meet a fan who hates John Diggle. Fans adore Diggle. There are some “fans” who try to marginalize his rule in Oliver’s life and in Team Arrow. But they are just insecure because they know that he is 10 times more relevant and beloved than their favourite characters ever will. I’ve never seen anyone who hates him because he is black. And I better not, it won’t end well for them! Might I suggest visiting the ‘John Diggle’, ‘OTA’ and ‘og3′ tags? You’ll see just how much people love Diggle. 

I don’t like to generalize but I’ve noticed that every Olicity shipper is a fan of Original Team Arrow (Oliver/Diggle/Felicity). And not because he is there to encourage Oliver to ask out Felicity or to play couples counsellor between the two. We truly care deeply about Diggle. You have no idea how excited we are to see more Diggle in season 4. One of the biggest mistakes season 3 did was sidelining Diggle. Fans were furious. They rallied and made petitions to get more Diggle stories. 

We care about everything John Diggle related. We care about John Diggle the hero and the fighter. We care about John Diggle the friend/the brother/the partner. We care about John Diggle the mentor and the advisor. We care about John Diggle the father and the husband. We care about John Diggle who was the first person to challenge Oliver to be better. Who was the Oliver’s first partner. Who saved Oliver’s life more times than I can remember. We can’t wait to know more about him. We can’t wait to see more story arcs for him. Season 4 is promoted as John Diggle’s season. The John Diggle character was so amazing and loved to the point that they included him in the comic books.
The character and his partnership with Oliver on the show was so phenomenal and iconic that it became comic book cannon. 

Rest assured, Noonie. People care deeply about all aspects of John Diggle’s life. You should’ve seen how excited fans were when it was revealed that the season 4 big bad is HIVE. It meant that it was finally Diggle’s season. Just think of all the awesome scenes we’d get with him fighting HIVE to get revenge for Andy. Diggle has been the leader of TA for 5 months, and he now has his own suit and is getting a code name. So just think of all the awesome fighting sequences we are going to get. 

Cheer up, Noonie, it’s Diggle’s year!
