i know this isnt an original

anonymous asked:

i noticed that you reblog sixpenceee sometimes, which i was a little surprised by since she was originally controversial for her nazi apologism. now she's controversial because she recently made a profiteering scheme offering to give unqualified advice to mentally ill followers for $30 (she's since apologized but only reblogs posts that come to her defense which makes her appear pretty insincere). isnt rebloggin someone like this a bit hypocritical? im assumin you just dont know about her though

Anon, 

I have not heard these things before, don’t know the person being referred to though I’m guessing they were an OP on something I reblogged(?) bc  I like many of us do not research the provenance of a lot of the posts I reblog and I’m always a little … perplexed as to how to take these types of vaguely accusatory but also unsourced anon messages. On the one hand If I’m spreading a bad message or promoting a harmful person … yes I want to know, (like holy shit, nazi apologism). 

But there’s got to be a better dynamic for this type of interaction, because the setup is incredibly asymmetrical and ripe for bullying, even if (and I don’t know if it is) the information is accurate. So I’m really ambivalent about these types of messages, especially when they’re anonymous.

Because right now, I have in my inbox an anonymous callout of a person I literally don’t follow and must have reblogged without looking at who the op in a long chain of reblogs was (I have no idea what post this is referring to), who it appears has had a series of scandals, some of which were apologized for (but not enough or apparently sincerely enough for tptb), none of which accusations are sourced, and … idk what I’m supposed to do or feel about that. In the absence of facts, all I have is social pressure. 

The dynamics of the anon callout are … this weird diffuse asymmetrical accusatory stew. Effectively, I know that someone, unknown to me (bc anon) has made accusations about another person, also unknown to me (bc I don’t follow them and don’t know anything about them), using no sources/evidence, but because a post/posts of theirs has (presumably) been reblogged by me (idk which though I can remember seeing their name in the past, so it seems likely) I can either be tangentially associated with their alleged crimes or perform public contrition while promising never to ‘sin’ again, all on the basis of basically anonymous rumor. 

I have no idea if I’m expressing the weirdness of this or its anxiety-provoking dynamic right. I feel as if there’s a sort of expected script, a performance of social shame and conformity that I’m now supposed to go through, but the entire dynamic is based around me accepting the authority of unsourced anonymous asymmetrical proclamation (rumor) ‘-this person you don’t follow but reblogged is a baddie, trust me and the chain of other people you don’t know who are saying they’re a baddie, because we’re willing to believe just this one time that maaaaaybe you’re not a “hypocrite” (about…something?) but if you don’t give in to the demands we’ll know who you reaaaaaaaally are.’ 

I mean, I know the script is that I’m supposed to say ‘oh wow I didn’t know and I’ll never reblog that terrible bad person again, thanks for letting me know,’ and part of me is thinking damn I *didn’t* know that (and to be honest, I actually still don’t, bc no evidence, but I believe you’re acting in good faith as you understand the situation) and I don’t want to promote bad things, but I also loathe this dynamic because callout culture is basically about leveraging social fear in order to compel behavior–from the safety of anonymity. 

So I don’t know whether or not any of this is true but I effectively must act as if it is, while meanwhile an anonymous person trundles off with no responsibility or accountability. It’s … a very gross dynamic. 

So on the one hand, I don’t want to be spreading nasty shit (and am now googling this user), and there definitely are times I’d want to be told that a source or OP is not one to be associated with but on the other, I want to really strongly suggest that if we want to make this site a kinder place, we consider the dynamics we contribute to it, and the power dynamics and environment they encourage?

Anonymity in these types of situations is a power play and an attempt to evade social responsibility while demanding it from others. 

Can we just discuss this? This was when she saw Rhea on her phone talking to Kara, and when she asked, Rhea blatantly lied to her face. Lena KNOWS she’s lying (and TBH, she always knew in the back of her mind that Rhea is shady), but she chooses to ignore it. She struggles, but she still turns away and continues to work. She wants SO BADLY to believe that someone (besides Kara) is truly good, and truly believes in her. She turns away, knowing better, because despite everything, Lena Luthor has a hopeful optimism that trumps her rationality simply because her heart is desperate for love.

This also ties into the headcanon that Lena knows Kara is Supergirl, but is in a bit of denial about it, simply because she wants to believe her life can be normal, for one second. For one second, she can have a friend who doesn’t have any ulterior motives, and doesn’t have a past that is tangled with her last name. Kara is her safe place, a place to go to hide from the reality of her life, and admitting she’s Supergirl adds layers of complications that I don’t think she’s ready to face. Lena Luthor is smarter than everyone, but she chooses to overlook certain things, almost as a reflex, to protect her heart.

I still want that DLC so bad... Please, Square Enix.

And yes, I still ship Gladnis. Damn, do I ship it…

Real question. How can you support sjm and her books (I made myself read them sine everyone talks about them and they are racist af and culturally appropriative, particularly ACOMAF) while also blogging so much about POC and representation? You do you, but as a woman of color I'm real confused by that.

I’ve spoken about this a lot. I have many problems with SJM’s books. I have problems with her poc involvement specifically and her ‘cultural appropriation’. (If I can find the questions I’ve answered already on this topic, i’ll link them, but I mostly went in depth this past summer.)

As for ACOMAF, there is definitely cultural appropriation but in a loose form of the definition. “Cultural appropriation is the adoption or use of the elements of one culture by members of another culture. Cultural appropriation may be perceived as controversial or harmful, notably when the cultural property of a minority group is used by members of the dominant culture without the consent of the members of the originating culture.” - wikipedia. In my opinion, what SJM is doing is not exactly cultural appropriation. I think she took ideas of different cultures and made them into her ‘own’ world. Now, I’m not saying she didnt misuse information. I think there is loose appropriation in the books. But I don’t think we can assign it to cultural appropriation. This isnt me saying that there arent problems with the books. There most definitely is. But I think giving this a fair shake is important (and if you know me, I love being unfair and small things can make me pop off - especially when regarding race). I also think she tried to avoid that at all costs? She hinted towards the appropriation of culture in clothing, food, and setting specifically. But I feel like she really did try to dodge that fat bullet.

I dont see acotar or acomaf being racist. I see problems in it, of course, but I don’t see it as being racist in the slightest. I see people that misinterpret the book (like making Rhys and other Ilyrians white) as racism and white washing, but i dont see the book as being racist. Now, if Rhys, Cass, Amren, and Az were actually terrible characters, or shown in that light to the protagonist, then yes, I would say automatically, this is racist as fucking hell. But I dont see that. 

However, one thing that has bothered me about acomaf was specifically the treatment of the summer court. I’ve explained this before in another post which I’ll have to find. It’s not how she depicted the summer court or the people in it. In fact, I felt it was beautifully articulated. But I absolutely HATE the treatment of Tarquin. It is one of my biggest fucking pet peeves of the book. I love how she made his character, but I despise how Feyre and Rhys treated him. I am not so sure that is boiled down to race though (and again, I’m easily one to say it is. But in this instance, i’m not so sure). 

Now, I can go ALL FUCKING DAY, about Nehemia. ALL. FUCKING. DAY. Because that STILL pisses me off. I don’t care how fucking strong of a character she was, I dont care how beloved she is now, she was still a person of color that killed her fucking self to FURTHER the white characters narrative. That will forever fucking piss me off. Her AND Sorcha. (I went into an entire rant about it. I’ll have to find them though)

With all that said and done, I think an important question to keep in mind is how deep do we get into things like this? If SJM was a woman that only wrote about white characters, we would be up in arms, calling her racist, and that she hates poc. If she wrote about only poc characters, being a white woman, we would be saying that shes being culturally appropriative, that she doesnt understand, that she should stay in her lane, etc. 

SJM is a woman that is writing about people while I think, trying her best to be inclusive and diverse. Shes a fucking white woman writing about it though. i don’t expect it to be perfect. But as a white woman, no matter what she does, no matter what she writes about, shell be criticized by being either too white, or too out of her lane. Like, anything she does, she will literally be criticized for it and the only way she wouldnt be, is if she was a person of color. (I guess she gets a narrow - extremely narrow- glimpse of what we feel).

These are just my opinions. I know people wont agree. But this is why I, a mixed (black and armenian), bi, woman, who makes social/political art based around race in her daily life, read sjm books (Specifically acotar. I’ve fallen off of the ToG bandwagon. EoS didnt jazz me and I’m still fucking pissed about Nehemia after all these years). I would love for this to open up a dialogue though. You can tell me I’m wrong, that’s fine. I would love to hear other people’s opinions - especially people of color.

Why isnt Larrys shipname Halo that would be iconic imagine being called halos but i still love Larry so whatever

I think people called them Larry because “Larry Stylinson” is how Louis and Harry referred to themselves way back when. They said it was the fans who first started calling them that, but from what I recall, they were actually the ones who coined the name.

But, you know, it may forever remain a mystery. 😉

A-Z NSFW: Ten

Originally posted by cihttaphon

Disclaimer: I couldn’t find the original poster this came from, but I got this from philanddanxreader, I didn’t come up with this.

A = Aftercare 
Ten is such an angel, he can’t rest after you’re finished until he knows you’re okay, comfortable, and happy. He’s out the bed faster than you can catch your breath and returning with a warm rag and some water because he ‘wore you out, you need to rehydrate’ before he will even allow you to cuddle up to him and go to sleep.

B = Body part (Their favorite body part of theirs and also their partner’s) 
Ten has an almost unreal obsession with your eyes, I think he’s a pretty loving…lover…so he likes to keep eye contact, seeing the lust and affection in your eyes, knowing they mimic what you seen in his. Aside the fact he just thinks your eyes are the more beautiful thing he’s ever seen, he can read your emotions like a book, knowing he’s hit the right spot when your eyes widen or when you’re close when they flutter shut. We all knowaside from his noseTen’s dancer hips are where it’s at, and he knows it too. His hips are the main reason that he gets to see the look of pleasure cloud your eyes, his hips play a huge part in his dancing that he’s pretty proud of, why wouldn’t that carrying over to the horizontal tango, right?

C = Cum 
Ten’s a pretty passionate lover, he doesn’t voice this but he thinks it’s kind of degrading to just…jizz all over you for no reason, 9/10 he’ll cum in you/the condom #RubberUpForDanKids. Then it’s his unspoken job to make sure he’s cleaned you well before you carry on with your day, 

D = Dirty Secret (a dirty secret of theirs)
Ten’s not a dirty boy by nature, he’s pretty sweet and innocent, and that’s how the majority of your relationship is; sweet and innocent. So the fact that he may or may not have had a rough night, and may or may not have jerked off to one of your completely goofy snapchat pictures is a secret he’ll take to his grave. How could he tell you he touch his dick to a normal picture of you with dog features, c’mon. 

E = Experience (How experienced are they? Do they know what they’re doing?)
I’m 119% sure Ten is the most innocent baby you’ll ever meet, like this boy seriously gonna get all awkward and look away when some girl popper her booty like cmon…..he’s soft. Even his teacher said he was more interested in dancing than in girls, so I think he’s one of the boys that’s going to be a clean slate and you have to teach him a lot of stuff, mold him into your perfect match.

F = Favorite position
Again, Ten’s pretty much a clean slate when it comes to sex, and he’s the sweetest and most loving boyfriend you could hope to find, he rarely ventures beyond missionary. He likes the full on contact, and being able to look in your eyes, kiss you easily, it’s a comfortable position for both of you. If anything else, he’ll spoon you so he can still hold you, but on the norm, he’s just a missionary guy.

G = Goofy (Are they more serious in the moment, or are they humorous, etc)
Because Ten is kinda awkward seeing sexy things, and he doesn’t seem like he really has any experience, I imagine he’d be full of nervous giggles the first few times, not really knowing what to do and more focused on listening to what you’re telling him to do than anything. But after he gets the hang of it, I’m sure he’ll still be a ball of fun, he’s kind of a meme too, he can’t even keep the dorky smile off his face while he’d dick popping to Hide And Freak, he’s a dorky mess in the sheets too.

H = Hair (How well groomed are they)
Like Johnny, we’ve seen his tummy quite a few times and it’s pretty darn clean, not even a trail of hair, so I think he’s pretty cleaned down there too. Plus I think I’ve even seen pics where he had no pit hair either…like he waxed or shaved his armpits….so yeah, he’s a clean baby.

I = Intimacy (How are they during the moment, romantic aspect…)
Ten is that boyfriend that is THE boyfriend you want, he’s got matching couple cases with Johnny, c’mon he’d be the cutest, sweetest bf ever. He’d treat you like royalty, after he may or may not have watched one too many romance movies, it’s not uncommon for him to at the very least have soft music playing and mood lighting, even candles decorating the bathroom when he decides you need a relaxing bath that he so happens to join. He’s not much of a PDA guy, so he goes all out with his love expressions here, to let you know how much he really loves you and appreciates you.

J = Jack Off (Masturbation)
Ten’s a very good dancer, he practices a lot, so you’re not always around. As long as there’s a lock on the bathroom door, he will deal with his situation. Not that the lock helps much, Ten’s not very good at keeping his voice under control, whether it be with you or just his hand, everyone knows what’s going on when you hear Ten’s incoherent moaning.

K = Kink (One or more of their kinks)
I don’t see Ten having many kinks, if any at all? I just think we hype his sexualnessthats not a wordup way too much, he really seems pretty vanilla to me. Not that that’s a bad thing, but Ten seems really basic and standard. If anything, praise might be a slight kink, adding to his motivation, but that doesn’t really qualify entirely.

L = Location (Favorite places to do the do)
Besides the comfort of your bed, the only place he enjoys doing the do is the bath, he takes full advantage of the bathroom having a spacious bath, and the sneaky way he pretends he just wants a bath to relax with his lover. We all know if you get in that bath, you’re going to end up dirtier than when you got in. And the best part about bath sex? You can just get clean again…and dirty again…and clean again…

M = Motivation (What turns them on, gets them going)
Honestly the thing that gets him going is just knowing how much you love him, when you purposely overdo the compliments and praising his looks or dancing or voice, he knows what you’re up to. You’ve slightly conditioned him that way, it was sort of your way of telling him you wanted some time alone with him.

N = NO (Something they wouldn’t do, turn offs)
Public sex is literally not on the menu. The thrill of public sex is the knowledge that literally anyone could see you, making it a game of being sneaky, but Ten cannot handle that. He’d be too paranoid of getting in trouble for public indecency or one of the members walking in on you in the living room, he made sure to shut down that idea instantly.

O = Oral (Preference in giving or receiving, skill, etc)
Like Johnny, he doesn’t really like isolating his pleasure, he wants to be able to please you the same as you do him, so when the act of oral comes up, it’s more often than not 69. At first he was kind of messy, not really know what he was supposed to do, or how to do it well, but by the end of your ‘lesson’, you turned him into a pro.

P = Pace (Are they fast and rough? Slow and sensual? etc.)
Ten’s dancing is very flowy, smooth movements like water. A perfect lover at heart, his pace leans more towards slow and sensual, he likes stretching out the pleasure for the both of you, making sure you’re both completely satisfied and that you fully feel his love.

Q = Quickie (Their opinions on quickies rather than proper sex, how often, etc.)
It’s an odd occurrence, but when the moment arises where you two don’t have the proper time to deal with it, he pretty much needs the quickie. Ten isn’t one that can just ignore his dick hard and ruining his life, it needs to be dealt with, and if you’re around, would you really reject some more fun with Ten?

R = Risk (Are they game to experiment, do they take risks, etc.)
I deadass think Ten would cry if someone walked in on your two, he’d be so mortified. I definitely don’t see him taking any risks that happen outside of the bedroom or bathroom, he’s very private with his affection to you, it’d kill him if someone saw you two doing something naughty. Although I don’t see him enjoying many things beyond typical sex(ie. bringing in toys or kinks or whatever), if you propose them, he’d try them out at least, but I don’t see him taking to anything more than just you and him together.

S = Stamina (How many rounds can they go for, how long do they last…)
Ten is a damn good dancer, and he’s been doing it since he was a kid, so I don’t think he gets winded, he doesn’t get tried easily. As many rounds as you can handle, he’ll gladly give you them. Nana said he’s a ‘long fuck, he’s a go all night till you see the sunlight kind of fuck’, literally my 60+ year old grandma said that, she knows what she’s talking about.

T = Toy (Do they own toys? Do they use them? On a partner or themselves?)
I don’t think toys have ever cross his mind, unless you brought it up. He’s more of a hands on lover, he-like Taeyong- enjoys the fact that it’s you and him alone that makes the sex between you two so pleasurable. That it’s your affection and love and desire for one another that takes you to nirvana, not some silicon toy or vibrator, I don’t see him dipping his toes into that pool.

U = Unfair (how much they like to tease)
He’s not much of a tease, Ten likes making sure you’re both on the same level of pleasure. Foreplay is a must, but once you tell him to get on with it, he complies easily.

V = Volume (How loud they are, what sounds they make)
I don’t think he’s very vocal, he doesn’t say much beyond whispering a few I loves yous during the act, but he’s a definite moaner, he’s not quiet at all, if you’re in the house, you will hear Ten, that’s a fact. And to his horror, is a reason for the taunting from the other boys after one of them heard him.

W = Wild Card (Get a random headcanon for the character of your choice)
Your first time together, a story you liked to tease Ten over, stemmed from Ten having a wet dream. What other outcome could there possibly be when you’re woken up in the middle of the night by your boyfriend groaning your name and practically humping you in his sleep besides waking him up and dealing with his…situation?

X = X-Ray (Let’s see what’s going on in those pants, picture or words)
In my Nana’s wise words, Ten’s ‘too pretty to have those weird, forearm sized wieners. He ain’t big but those hips…it’s all good shorty’. I agree, either he does a really good tuck job, or he’s just not on the bigger side, which really doesn’t mean anything. The boy makes up for everything with his pretty face and those goddamn hips will take you to another world no matter what.

Y = Yearning (How high is their sex drive?)
I don’t think Ten has a very high sex drive, I think most of his energy is worked off with his dancing, I’m think his drive is actually pretty average.

Z = ZZZ (… how quickly they fall asleep afterwards)
I think Ten is a lover than likes to cuddle and talk about your relationship and how much he loves you and how the universe works every night, it’s part of your sleep schedule so it certainly becomes part of the after-sex routine. He doesn’t fall asleep easily afterwards, he wants to stay up, make sure you’re okay, eat, talk, clean up, cuddle, and then maybe he’ll go to sleep. That is, as long as your post sex convos don’t dip into aliens, then he’s never going to sleep.

Oh man frickin… I don’t know what happened to UT Mob but, I’m glad people are having fun with it! (I still get messages and pings from people crediting me with the original AU it’s crazy UT fans are so powerful??)

AND DON’T YOU WORRY!!! I always return to my children eventually…. They get so much love 24/7 until I stumble into a new fan-thing, anyway. Just think of it as some kind of… vacation? They get a bit of time-off while my brain is occupied by other people’s IP, haha! (I kinda needed a break from my original stuff anyway, I’ve been pretty burnt-out from just working on BACKLASH and commissions since last August T^T)

Watch on arisell-i.tumblr.com

if this isnt me I dont know what is

Batfam Hogwarts Houses (in my opinion) and why

*note if i make a mistake or anything let me know. i haven’t read everything with the batfam so if it isnt canon compliant i apologize now please dont send me hate mail

Ravenclaw -

  • Bruce: he is very smart (you would have to be to be the world’s greatest detective, right?) not only that but they prize originality and eccentrics and well just look at bruce and all the kids he has/has adopted. they are all very diverse and he seems to enjoy and foster their differences
  • Barbara: this is pretty obvious but Barbara is one of the smartest members of the batfam. Not only that but with her wit and love of learning it makes this pretty obvious
  • Tim: also kinda obvious BUT i would put him in this house because he’s very creative and smart. plus i always feel like Tim is always trying to impress everyone around him with his intelligence
  • Tiffany: she’s the daughter of lucius fox so obviously she’s very hardworking and smart but what really decided ravenclaw for her was the fact that shes is the manager of the wayne’s drug rehab program
  • Max: she is known as the smartest girl is terry’s class and also knows he is batman

Hufflepuff -

  • Cassandra: ok cassandra is as loyal as dog (from what i’ve read/seen) so this seems like the most obvious choice. not only that but they value hardwork and dedication which you need to not only master fighting BUT also ballet which she is a pro at
  • Stephanie: basically what @ladykattz said here
  • Nell: (i’m considering her part of the batfam because she is shown in bombshells as part of the little bat-baseball gang thing and i love her and we need more of her) she’s very loyal to batgirl (stephanie brown) and looks up to her
  • Alfred: he is loyal to bruce and the wayne family no matter what happens. not only that but he must have the patience of a saint for dealing with them all (bruce and his brooding alone) 
  • Leslie: she has always been the reliable older person that everyone can trust because she is kind and doesn’t judge. this was the obvious choice for her

Gryffindor -

  • Jason: i was torn between slytherin and gryffindor for him but what decided it for me is that the main traits for gryffindor are bravery, courage, and daring and if we are talking about the positives to jason he has all of those things in abundance
  • Terry: after finding the entrance to the batcave and then deciding to become batman against bruce’s wishes, it’s easy to say you gotta be pretty bold. plus bravery? terry has that in abundance since he really had no formal training before donning the batsuit and still was able to take down the powers corp
  • Duke: for all that duke has been through and still has the ability to be the ray of sunshine he is, that is pretty freakin’ amazing and brave. (also remember that time he burned someone alive in front of bruce cause i do that’s a bold thing to do because of bruce’s adverseness to killing)
  • Kate: she is unapologetically herself (a proud jewish lesbian) who knows how to kick ass and take names. that makes this easy to place her in Gryffindor

Slytherin -

  • Helena: being the daughter of bruce and selina, she was raised from birth to be a smart fighter and detective. she is cunning has self preservation and determination 
  • Damian: for the first years of his life he was raised by talia and the league of assassins and they raised him to be a cunning and deadly fighter. not only that he does like to come off as detached and not really caring which is a total slytherin thing to do but he actually cares deeply

anyways this is what i think! if i forgot anyone or anything, you don’t agree, you want to expand, etc feel free!

ruru-ainulindale  asked:

Hi!! I'm so sorry to bug you with this, but I saw your answer to that one question about Russian nicknames and I was wondering if I could ask for some help rq. I've been trying to find affectionate terms (e.g. baby, love, honey, darling, etc.) in Russian for YOI fanfiction purposes and was wondering if you could list a few ones to call a male lover? It seems I can only find ones in the feminine form. Thanku!

Hello! IM SO SORRY FOR RESPONDING SO LATE i hope even if im slow af you will able to use nicknames i wrote about….

since russian is pretty much a big and rich language, we have a lot of ways to express our love and intimacy through nicknames to loved ones! not only name based nicknames, but those affectionate terms as well

actually, we do use literal translations of ‘baby’ and ‘darling’ referring to loved ones

  • baby can be translated as малыш (malish) or детка (detka), or пупсик (pupsik) (pupsik sounds very ridiculous tbh but i think victor would use this one) and can be referred to both male, female and nonbinary folks, despide the fact малыш and пупсик are grammatically male gendered words, and детка - grammatically female gendered.
  • with darling\dear its different, its very gendered term, so you have to use дорогой (dorogoi) to male lover, дорогая (dorogaya) to a female, and дорогие (dorogie) to someone who uses they\them pronounce (but they\them pronounce as singular pronounce is very complicated topic in russian, it really is, so i will talk mostly about she\he, alright?)  
  • there is another word from дорогой  - дорогуша (dorogusha), grammatically female gendered, but can used towards anyone, usually in less tender, but  teasing way
  • i think darling\dear in meaning as affectionate nickname can be translated as милый (miliy) as well. милый literally translates as ‘cute’ and ‘nice’, but when russian uses it to exactly refer to someone they love its usually can be translated as 'darling’ in english
    милый (miliy) is for males and милая (milaya) is for females. (they\them is милые (miliye))
  • talking about affectionate adjectives, we also use 'loved’, like’ loved by me’, and its любимый (lyubimiy) for males, любимая( lyubimaya) for females, любимые (lyubimiye) for they\them
  • сладкий (sladkiy) is also common affectionate nickname, analogue of it in english is sweetie i believe, since сладкий  translates as 'sweet’. female form is сладкая (sladkaya), сладкие (sladkiye) for they\them  
  • we also have similar nicknames to 'sunshine’ for instance, but we dont literally call people 'sunshine’, but just 'sun’ - солнце (solntse), or with diminutive suffix to sound even cuter - солнышко (solnishko)

NOW LETS MOVE ON TO OUR ORIGINAL RUSSIANS NICKNAMES

we actually use shit tons of different nicknames. especially the most favorite by russians are animals, like every russian couple is a fucking mini zoo: we call our loved ones зая (zaya)\заяц(zayats)\зайчонок(zaychonok) - different forms of ’bunny’ ; котя(kotya)\котик(kotik)\котенька(koten'ka)\киса(kisa) - kitty; медвежонок (medvezhonok) - diminutive form of ’bear’ ; рыбка (ribka) - diminutive for ’fish’… and more, but зая is like the ultimate affectionate term and a lot of russians actually hate it, despite it being so popular lmao

in victor and yuuri’s case victor probably would call yuuri порося (porosya), поросенок (porosyonok),поросеночек (porosyonochek). all of these words are different variations of ’piggy\little piggy\piglet’. we also usually call порося those people who are very messy, but its in very tender way

i imagine when yuuri eats katsudon and some pieces of rice are on his cheeks, victors gently wipes them away, calling yuuri not less gentler ’порося моя’ (porosya moya - 'my piglet’).

ALSO I BET VICTOR WOULD ALSO CALL YUURI ФУНТИК (FUNTIK). Funtik is a character from old popular soviet cartoon Adventures of Piglet Funtik AND ITS CUTE

besides animals we can call people dear to us as:

  • золотце (zolotse) - 'someone gold’ or you can translate it as 'goldie’. a very common term in russian
  • голубка (golubka) - woopsie its an animal as well, i mean, a bird - a very sweet version of 'pigeon’
  • крошка (kroshka) - could be literally translated as 'crumb’ or 'little one’
  • куксик\кукуся\ кукуся (kuksik\kukusik\kukusya) - i honesty didnt know what exactly this word meaned till i googled it right now: 'as original term kukusik is someone very young, infantile and naive, who dont have much life experience and etc’, but this word lost this meaning and is usually used as affectionate term to loved one

i bet victor would call yuuri котлетка (kotletka), diminutive form of 'cutlet’

or щекастик (shekastik)! means 'someone with cute cheeks’ and this one isnt very common, but it sounds very cute and if you hc chubby yuuri, this nickname would fit him a lot!!  

other examples:

  • душа моя (dusha moya) - 'my soul’
  • свет моих очей (svet moih ochey) - 'the light of my eyes’. a pretty old one, im not sure someone uses it on daily basis, usually characters in old russian literature would referred like that. but is sounds very romantic and i personally love it
  • любовь моя (lyubov moya) - 'my love’
  • мой хороший \ хороший мой (moi horoshiy\horoshiy moi) for males; моя хорошая\хорошая моя (moya horoshaya\horoshya moya) for females - translates as 'my good’, meaning 'my dear’ or smth 
  • радость моя (radost’ moya) - 'my joy’

you noticed constant moi or moya in last ones? thats right, russian affectionate terms are very often accompanied with word 'my’ (мой\моя (moi\moya)), and sometimes some nicknames arent usually used separated from it!

russians usually use my + nickname combination to sound more intimate and show closeness to called person, which well is pretty obvious, i know, but we really do use it a lot

some of previous examples sounds even better and are more used with 'my’

мой (moi) is for grammatically male gendered words, моя (moya) for grammatically female gendered words and моё (moyo) - grammatically neutral gendered words tho

  • рыба моя (riba moya) - 'my fish’. yes we call people like that and its cute in our understanding
  • зая моя (zaya moya) - 'my bunny’
  • золотце моё (zolotse moye) - 'my goldie’
  • милый мой (miliy moi) for males; милая моя (milaya moya) for females - 'my dear’
  • сладкий мой (sladkiy moi) for males; сладкая моя (sladkaya moya) for females  - 'my sweet\my sweetie’

and yeah, we usually write 'my’ after the affectionate term. its grammatically correct in this case and sounds better.

actually in russian you can use like every cute sounding word as affectionate nickname?? even english ’pumpkin’ sounds very cute in russian - тыковка (tikovka) , and i would love if someone called me like that, despite the fact its not common term

ive read some fic where vitya called yuuri:
ангел мой\ангелочек мой (angel moi\angelochek moi) - 'my angel’
звезда моя\звездочка моя (zvezda\zvezdocka moya) - 'my star’
which you can use as well!! the number of possibilities is unbelievable

woopsie this one got very big as well… hope it was informative and still understanding!! 

fiftyweasels  asked:

look, this is really important. I need to know your opinion on the movie, The Flight of Dragons, and the dragons within them. Thanks

I love the dragons cause they are the closest thing to getting the old janky medieval dragon vibe in a cartoon plus having that 70′s-80′s fantasy aesthetic where everything was more lumpy then it is now.

The “science” of the movie (and book its based on) doesnt hold much water, but the ideas are still fun. I like the idea that dragons dont actually fly with their wings and are just fleshy hot air balloons who use their wings as paddles. 

AS FR THE MOVIE ITSELF Its been ages since Ive seen it, but I remember it being one of the better janky  fantasy cartoons of the era (which isnt saying much but you know). I like that it was a science vs magic story where one side isnt shitty and having a scientist (and gigantic scaley) enter a fantasy world and apply his science nerd shit to a setting that at first just seemed “magical”.

ITS PROBABLY NOT A GOOD MOVIE but its nice for what it is

I also like the original book art, which admittedly doesnt work as good illustrations for a book on speculative biology, but definitely work as weird dragon art
