i really want to learn sign language

100 Days Challenge for Langblrs

Since the langblr community seems dead and studyblrs have this challenge that seems very productive, i thought i should try to make a langblr version.

Rules:

  • There are 100 activities and you have to finish 1 task daily. 
  • There’s no particular order for these tasks. You choose what you feel like doing that day.
  • The tag for the challenge is #100daysoflanguages. In this way i can see how your studies are going and other people can get motivated knowing that someone else is doing the same challenge.
  • If you have time, write in your post what words/idioms you learned, what you’ve read/watched etc.
  • You can do this challenge for 1 or more languages.
  • Where i didn’t mention, there’s still a 95% chance that you still need to use your target language. [yes, i stopped writing “in your target language” at some point]
  • You don’t have to post about the challenge if you don’t want to, but i’ll be glad to see your progress or a post after you’ve finished the tasks. ^^

Imagine

Mute Dadsona AU where Amanda of course knows sign language and makes it her goal in life to teach the kids at the cul de sac the basics, at least, so they can understand her dad.

Craig used to be fluent but he’s gotten a little rusty over time so he needs some practice but that’s fine! He and MC probably also have a lot of made up or secret signs only they know. He also helps his kids practice what Amanda shows them.

Hugo has learned the basics plus some more complex stuff just from dealing with dadsona and Amanda at school. Ernest acts like he doesn’t care but he and Lucien probably practice it together and are surprisingly good at it.

Damien immediately orders books and guides and dives right into learning more and ends up becoming near fluent faster than Craig can relearn it. Lucien is kinda along for the ride but he kinda likes using it like a secret code at school with Ernest and Amanda. Damien surprises Dadsona with his knowledge by bringing over a bouquet in person and signing he explanation for each flower. Dadsona cries a little.

Brian kinda struggles with picking it up but he’s okay with it because Daisy picked it up so quickly and she’s usually around when Dadsona is so he relies on his little girl for a translator until he can figure out more. He and Dadsona still have competitions though…

Mat gets nervous that he rambles too much around Dadsona since MC can’t stop him or speak over him. The first sign he learns is probably “it’s okay” just because MC uses it so much… Carmensita isn’t really the best at actually doing the signs but she can “read” them pretty well.

Robert I want to be fluent. Like maybe his wife was deaf or mute or a close family member was and so he is entirely fluent with sign language and so is Val and Amanda and Dadsona love that but Robert cannot be trusted as a translator. Someone will ask what Dadsona signed and Robert tells them that the MC killed someone and he needs them to drive him to the state border. MC then punches Robert’s arm, Robert giggles, then he gives the correct translation.

Joseph has no freaking idea what they mean for the longest time, he’s so busy with the kids and church events he hardly has time to stop and learn, but when he has the time he’ll look stuff up and he’ll stop MC or Amanda on the road to ask for a few phrases so he’s learning! The kids mostly don’t know it and Amanda is a liiiiiittle scared to teach them…

Mary learns through trial and error during nights out with MC and Robert and just guesses until she gets it right. Her guesses are more and more ridiculous as she drinks more and it makes Dadsona both exasperated while also holding back cackles. Mary secret learns some other phrases by watching Joseph and Damien and Robert.

ok so I know we're​ all really sold on the ‘neil and andrew learn russian’ headcanon, but I take that and raise you this: neil and andrew learn sign language

  • it totally makes sense ok
  • hear me out
  • they learn asl (or maybe pse just because its easier)
  • it works for times when they can’t speak
  • when neil has nightmares and can’t get his voice to work
  • or when they’d rather be quiet but still talk to each other
  • just signing yes and no without having to speak
  • but also
  • andreil would totally just use it to their advantage
  • signing to each other from long distances
  • or signing things like you okay? slyly so know one can see
  • andrew signing something like I’m gonna kill him when nicky starts rambling
  • neil just rolling his eyes and signing no without stopping the conversation with the rest of the foxes
  • neil making a risky shot during a game and turning to give andrew a smirk
  • andrew only replies with the sign for addict (i.e junky)
  • kevin really wanting to learn because he thinks it could be useful on the court
  • andrew teaches him the completely wrong signs for amusement
  • andrew would totally just sign rapidly at reporters when they ask him questions to confuse them and then walk away
  • trust me people get flustered if you start randomly signing at them
  • neil likes it because it improves his dexterity and hand-eye coordination
  • junky
  • andrew, in english: “shut up, josten”
  • neil, snarkily, in sign language: make me

chibbycookie  asked:

Do you know of any ASL resources by any chance?? I really would like to learn

Check out my “Deaf Guide” if you have other questions c:

I am interested in learning American Sign Language, where do I start?

Thank you so much for showing an interest in learning ASL! It always makes me happy to see people take an interest in such a wonderful language. In order to have the best learning experience enrolling into a course at your local community college or other school is best. Here are some links though for those who want to get started or do not have time to enroll in to a class at the moment. I personally like LifePrint and ASL Dictionary, but will list other resources that have been recommended by other d/Deaf/HoH people.

Soulmates (AU) - Part Three

Pairing: Harry and Y/N

Word Count: 3812

Prompt (AU) : Harry took his anger out in sex-and you weren’t supposed to do that. He would go to the bar and find others just as terrible and lonely as him, drink, and then sink his sorrows into anything with breast and a hole were to put it. Niall always rolled his eyes the next morning and say to Harry “you’re a proper dick, yeh know that right?”, to which Harry would lift his middle finger up and respond with, “if soulmates are real she would love me anyhow.”

“Harry when you meet her your life will change,” Anne says, handing him a cup of tea.

Harry rolls his eyes, “I don’t care to meet her. It’s all bullshit,” Harry grumbles.

Part One Part Two

Be aware I suck at writing endings.


Y/N had always been excited to meet her other half. Her soulmate was supposed to love her no matter what, they were made for her, and she never thought in a million years that her choice to not speak would affect that. She never thought that her other half would have such an issue with it, she didn’t expect him to be so rude.

Y/N had always been the odd one out, she always felt uncomfortable and made up for it by making sure no one ever felt the way she did. She always made sure to include everyone, smile at the person who was talking, nod at them, she would always make sure to invite everyone anywhere. Y/N never wanted anyone to feel how she felt, and she hoped when she met her soulmate it would be different. She hoped that she would never feel like the odd one out in her own relationship, but she did.

When Y/N woke up she didn’t know what to do. She was in her own house, in her own bed, but she felt like the man next to her was a stranger, and he wasn’t supposed to be. She knew his favorite meals, what made him upset, what made him happy, she knew the food that got him sick, and what made him feel like home, but she felt like she didn’t know him. She always remembered how Heath was so happy when he met Sydney, saying how it just felt right, but it didn’t feel like that for Y/N. She felt like she had to explain herself, step out of her comfort zone, and she just wasn’t ready for that.

12x17 I..... liked this episode ?

This is my first post-episode overview commentary because I just was surprised how much I liked this episode. There was still some wtf-ery but generally I enjoyed it and, well, I can’t help but link everything to Destiel these days and the Destiel itself was strong but man, the continued breaking down of the barriers to it becoming canon more textual just keeps coming this season. 

Dabb……

The women: Ok so I really hope they follow through on the Mary can actually “have it all” and I hope there’s a reason for Kelly’s characterisation like she’s being mind controlled by the kid, but other than that I’m pretty happy with this episode? Kelly textually said she was used. Yes, thank you.

Mary and Ketch - I didn’t…hate it? Ok so it’s a bit weird but only because we have info on Ketch that Mary doesn’t? To Mary he is her trainer, he’s charming, he helped save her boys…. she doesn’t know about Magda, Toni, maybe not even how vicious he can be…. and Mary is allowed her fair share of Winchester terrible sexual partners and she’s a big girl, she can do what and whoever she wants as long as it’s not hurting anyone. 

And there is a clear Destiel-related reason I am 100% OK WITH MARY MAKING THIS DECISION! (see below).

Crowley / Lucifer: I’m hoping this whole thing is just another set up like it was last Bucklemming episode, to be ‘fixed’ later, I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt there. 

Mick: I liked Mick, I wanted Mick to live even though I knew he wouldn’t really. At least now people wont be worried he’s replacing Cas. Oh well. Also, kind of re-cements Ketch as our bad guy. Will he still try to kill Mary? *drum roll*…

Omg the Saileen: They are cute, they HOLD GREAT EYE CONTACT and all the little smiles and flirting while at the same time wow badass hunter couple. And Sam learned more sign language?! And they talked before off screen after Coeur d’Alene and its implied they talked more than that?! Yes please! 

My head canon is that that night she still couldn’t sleep after killing whatisface snobby Brit guy (yeah, another snobby Brit guy, thanks for that), knocked quietly on Sam’s door, he wordlessly offered his hand to her, she climbed into bed with him, they cuddled and he comforted her, that is all. They are so pure and I love them.

They can be a badass hunter husband and wife and just all the cuteness.


Ok so the Destiel: 

Pining!Dean is what I live for in these kind of episodes. Whispers *Thank you Bucklemming*? 

Dean / Cas and Sam / Eileen clear romantic parallels all episode! Dean not deflecting and admitting he is worried to Sam! (Also aside - Dean admitting Mick drank him under the table and not posturing like he’s this big macho guy).

Dean called Cas 4 times… that day. I would also be worried, Cas always calls Dean back. They also text regularly. So yeah. Also the callback of Mick talking about Lucifer being in your boyfriend. Ouch. Also MORE Dean calling Cas away from Sam *satisfied face* - will add this to my already long phone call post ;) 

Ok, so the Mary/Ketch thing…

Personally, Destiel shipper hat on I hope that between the colt and this, when Dean finds out it will really cement his realisations this season about his feelings for Cas. 

If Mary can sleep with who she wants why can’t he? He’s put her on such a pedestal and she’s shown she’s human over and over again, this would cement it for Dean. And if Mary can sleep with someone she doesn’t love, who Dean knows is a psychopath (even if Mary doesn’t), why can’t Dean acknowledge his own pure, healthy feelings of love for Cas? I don’t know if I’m voicing this coherently but I have feelings about this ok. 

This season is just building so much to break down the walls around Dean / Cas: 

1. Dean generally is letting his facade down and letting his real self shine through, see ALL the meta about the whole of season 12 plus the textual whole episode of 12x11 showing us this is what we are meant to be seeing and getting from all this.

2. Cas was / is still thinking about where he belongs. Dean was / is still worried that everyone he loves will abandon him. THESE THINGS TIE IN TOGETHER AND ARE TEXTUALLY TIEING IN TOGETHER THIS SEASON.

3. Sam and Eileen are / could be a cute hunter couple and a great example. Sam doesn’t have to rely on Dean if he has someone else. Dean can move on himself much as a single parent often does once they know their child is emotionally OK. Check. 

4. Mary shows him that he doesn’t have to worry about *shame* on the family. She might even say something to this point about herself if they discuss this (I’m looking at you leaked argument between Dean and Mary in 12x21).

5. Cas has told Dean that he loves him. And yes I will go on record AGAIN to say that Sam and Dean both had an acknowledged, directed, written, face of REALISATION when Cas made the clarification and made clear the first I love you was to Dean alone. Even if it wasn’t (pffff), it was written ambiguously for a *reason*.

6. And….

It seems Dean is realising now how ‘fragile’ Cas is. He is no longer on the ‘Cas’ll be fine’ band wagon. HE IS NOT MAD, HE’S WORRIED.

There is a reason twitter is awash with - 

WHERE IS THE ANGEL?! 

- every episode since 12x12 (even 12x15 only had marginal Cas and no real Dean/Cas other than both times it was gloriously, clearly, romanticised).

We are supposed to be worried, to be missing him because Dean is worried and missing him and off course this flows through to the show’s narrative and they’re making us feel this (and I’m sure Sam too of course but its not the same).

Dabb. I see you.

hi everyone! some people are starting school soon, meanwhile, others have already started. i’ve noticed a lot of people who are freshmen, or upcoming freshmen, and i’d like to give my own advice from personal experience! i seriously wished i followed some of these tips.

1. whether or not your current friends will be at your high school, this is a great time to make new friends. you may not think so right now, but you might become really close to them in the future.

2. just a psa, you might lose some friends in high school. that is fine! the reasons can range from unnecessary drama to just having no classes together. you will find better friends, i promise.

3. people say that high school isn’t what you see in movies, but cliques are still very real. you will probably have your own clique-like group at some point, but do be open to people. don’t just focus on your friends when that new kid could use new friends too.

4. you might have a teacher that will ruin your grades/gpa. i genuinely mean that you might end up with a teacher that ruins your 4.0 gpa or your goal for straight a’s, no matter how much effort you put into the class. do not underestimate yourself, learn what you can yourself and move on. you will do better, trust me, those teachers exist for a reason other than to make you suffer, i swear.

5. sign up for electives, clubs, sports, etc. that you want to try out. you will find people with similarities to you, and you will need that time to have fun and not study relentlessly.

6. while it doesn’t hurt to learn a language, instead of taking a foreign language class for colleges, take it and apply what you learn. foreign languages are really helpful and fun too, especially if you get to study abroad or go travel to foreign countries!

7. remember that you can talk to your guidance counselor at school if you have any problems. they want you to have a good school year too. teachers, parents, and even close friends can be good people to go to.

8. please, don’t take an ap class (or any class with college credit) if you aren’t willing to work hard in those classes and actually study. i see freshmen do this all the time, and it only wastes your time. it might be better to delay those classes for sophomore year or later.

9. the only reason why upperclassmen seem like they dislike freshmen is that some freshmen are too immature (and frankly, some of them can truly be a nuisance). otherwise, most of them will not bite, so don’t worry!

10. it is important that you do well in your freshman year, so try not to slack off. those grades are your foundation to your gpa!

11. if you do slack off freshman year, it’s okay, colleges like to see students who improve their grades. start sophomore year off with awesome grades. ☆

12. don’t stress so much over college, because you have time to slowly prepare for it! unlike the seniors who are in their second semester, you can plan on what to do to help you prepare for college.

13. don’t have time for something? make time, or find time. you have “time”, you just prioritize certain things over others, that’s all. time management is very important in high school.

14. you might want to improve those bad habits (ahem, procrastination) now. it will help you when you have three tests on the same day, and nobody wants to finish an essay at one in the morning the night before it’s due.

15. don’t take a class just because your friend will take it, you will probably regret it. i did this and i got my schedule changed by the school, so i had a class with none of my friends. it was tedious.

16. this is practically the opposite of #8, but don’t refuse to take a college level class because you think you will fail. (unless you’re contemplating ap calculus when you struggle to graph algebraic functions, then, you know, maybe not). it’s good to challenge yourself sometimes.

17. don’t feel pressured to do something just because it’s mainstream, or that certain people do it. try to learn to stop caring about what people think of you, or at least ignore any negative prejudice around you. their opinions are irrelevant.

18. learn to find your identity, it will take a while. that’s fine, but have fun, make new friends, do fun activities, work hard, and most importantly, be healthy and happy!!

19. do not put school over health. i beg of you, do not pull all nighters either. your physical and mental health is the most important.

20. if you get sick, contact your friends to know what you missed. or have them get your work and give it to you. or even better, email your teachers. i hate doing work when i’m sick, however, it might be better than making up your work while working on your current work after you go back to school.

21. i know people say “don’t stress” which is much harder said than done. you will probably have days when you procrastinate on so many assignments, or when you didn’t do an assignment and you need to finish it as soon as possible. break it down to little pieces and work on it. take breaks. if you are truly stressed, leave your work alone and relax because that is the most important.

22. when you are having a conversation with someone, listen to them rather than wait to reply to them. it’s amazing how many people don’t do this with their own friends. this isn’t exactly related to school, but people do this with their own teachers too, so grasp the directions teachers give you.

23. do the extra credit, especially if it’s small. it might help you from getting an 89.4% in the class.

24. i won’t elaborate on this, but it does help to take certain necessities to school. gum, extra pencils/pens, makeup, brush, etc.

25. unless it is required, don’t take a class just because you want to look good for college. getting into one can be very competitive, and sometimes taking a class you despise might put very little effort into getting into college.

26. learn what you study and apply it, and review it in the future. don’t learn to study, study to learn. if you have never needed to study, start now. even if you still don’t need it. because at some point you will, and if you develop good habits now, you will thank yourself.

27. figure out what kind of learner you are. it helps if you get a teacher that confuses you. do you learn better from pictures? audio? textbooks? figure that out now, if you haven’t. study smarter, not harder!

28. small advice: don’t talk in class and don’t block the hallways. sincerely, someone who walks all over the school five days a week while focusing in seven classes.

29. take advantage of what can help you study better! apps/programs, ambient music, reward systems, pomodoro, etc. figure out what works for you so you can study efficiently.

30. most importantly, work hard and study, but not too hard to the point where your health and mind suffers. good luck to you all.  ♡

Can we STOP calling it “autism risk” and instead call it “autism probability”? Because I’m not fond of the idea that autism is dangerous, which it’s not.

So what if your kid never SAYS “I love you”? They could still type it out or use pictures or sign language.

So what if they never go to college? They can still learn things.

So what if you’ll never have grandchildren? They might not have wanted to get pregnant or be a parent, even if they were a low/mid support autistic.

The point is if you’re encouraging them to accept who they are. That means YOU have to accept and love your child as they are, autism and all.

If you think autistic people are burdens or love your child, but hate their autism, you really shouldn’t be a parent.

Dean x Reader

Requested by Anon


“Bobby I’m here!” Dean called as he let himself in, assuming the house was empty when he got no reply.

Half an hour later there was a squeal and he had to duck as something shot past his head and crashed into the side of the fridge which Dean had been shutting.

“Hey whoa, sorry I forgot you can’t hear me.” Dean chuckled as he held his hands up to show you he wasn’t a threat.

From your face and the rate your hands moved Dean assumed he’d really pissed you off, and he couldn’t really blame you. Sam and Bobby had been on at him to learn at least a little sign language but he just hadn’t had anytime, if he did he was sleeping off an injury.

Hydra took you when you were just a baby. Well, “took” is the wrong word. You sold to Hydra. Your mom was a crack addict that sold you for drug money. They taught you how to fight and shoot a gun by the age of ten, but they neglected to teach you how to speak. They thought that if you couldn’t talk, then you couldn’t go against them. You wouldn’t be able to find the words to defy them. You weren’t taught sign language either. They gave you no communication skills. You followed orders and that was it.

It wasn’t until you were twenty-one that you learned how to communicate. You were saved by Captain America himself. He and all the Avengers raided the base you were kept in. It was abandoned not only two days prior, but they left you to die. Just like with all of their worn-out pieces. Steve Rogers, who you learned to be the Captain, unchained you and brought you to the Avengers base. He introduced you to everyone, and that’s when they learned of your predicament.

They wanted to be able to communicate with you, but for now they gave you a whiteboard and a marker to answer basic questions, everything else they would have to learn after teaching you a way to communicate.

Clint Barton, aka Hawkeye, took it upon himself to teach you sign language. He was deaf so he was perfectly qualified to help. You were able to get it down fast. You were eager to express yourself and tell them about who you are. Within two months you could hold steady conversations with Clint. He became your translator when you signed to other members of the tower, but when he would leave to go home to his wife and kids, you were left going back to the whiteboard. No one else knew sign language, but Bucky wanted to change that.

He had been fascinated with you since Steve first brought you in. You had gone through hell, but still managed to keep a smile on your face. He wanted to know your secret. He wanted to talk to you, have conversations with you, and he wanted to tell you of his feelings for you but he wanted to sign it.

He started secretly seeing Clint. He helped him learn basic phrases and words. In his spare time, he would watch online videos and would read books just about sign language. He really wanted to impress you.

You could hear just fine, but when people spoke it made you feel weird. You didn’t know how to form the words to answer, so most of the time people tried to avoid using speech. It made you uncomfortable, but you wanted to also surprise Bucky.

You also had feelings for the metal-armed man, but of course neither of you knew of the reciprocated feelings. On top of the sign language lessons, Wanda was also helping you form the one sentence you had always wanted to say.  

Both of you finally felt confidant. Today was the day you would confess your feelings. You had one last practice with Wanda before she sent you on your way. You had stuttered a little bit, but other than that it was perfect.

You had slowly made your way to the common room. Bucky was always in there at about noon. He was trying to catch up on the stuff he had missed.

You approached him slowly, but what he did next surprised you. He had singed your name. He learned how to sign “Y/N.”

Your smile slowly grew and then he continued. His hand movements were a little rough but other than that the signing was perfect. He had signed out “I really like you.” You felt giddy inside and before you knew it you were trying to speak.

“I-I l-like y-you too, B-Bucky.” You stuttered on most of the words but he still understood you. Your voice was raspy but beautiful. Bucky loved it.

He came over to you and cupped your cheeks in his hands. He looked into your eyes for permission for what he was about to do. He saw the happy gleam and knew you wanted it just as much. He slowly lowered his head and connected your lips. Both of you sighed and the same time. The kiss was slow and sweet. It was your first kiss and his first one since leaving Hydra. It was perfect for the both of you.

Wanda and Clint had been watching from the hallway, giving each other a quiet high-five, they walked away. Proud of the work they had done.

Goal Setting and Slaying

I asked several people the other day if they consciously has goals for their life, month, day, hour – and if they formed separate, definable goals for each aspect of their life. Not one of them said yes.

This seems so strange to me, because I am an addictive goal setter. The rush of satisfaction you get from crossing a met goal off a list is something that keeps me motivated. That feeling of pride in earning something also keeps me disciplined.

You need goals so you have something to work toward. After all, you can’t reach a destination if you don’t have a destination. They don’t have to be big or traditional,but they do have to be something you can achieve. So here are my tips for goal setting and slayinggg.

  • Set goals for different areas of your life

Have school goals, work goals, relationship goals, house goals, fitness goals, health goals, attitude goals – always be constantly determined upon improving your life and who you are. Be the boss babe you were meant to be.

  • Set goals for different periods of time

Having long-term goals is great because it gives you a general overview of the direction you need to be going in, but having short-term goals is also good because it tells you what you need to be focusing your energies on atm, and helps you manage that precious time wisely.

  • Divide the longer goals into easily reached checkpoints

Sometimes I look at some of the more time costly objectives and I get discouraged. How long will it take me to get in shape? Months? Years? But if I make smaller goals out of that longer goal, it helps me to keep feeling accomplished and like I am moving forward. For example, within your goal to get in shape, set smaller intentions like “by X months I will be able to run Y miles.”

  • Make your goals specific

Telling yourself that you will make good grades isn’t clear, and when your perspective is muddled, your actions won’t be definitive. If you never establish what good grades mean to you, then you may be willing to accept a B or a C or really anything that you want – basically, too vague goals allow you to slack off and make excuses for yourself. Your goals should be specific and intentional. Instead of saying “I will make good grades,” say “I will make all B’s or higher.”

  • Establish a routine

I personally work better with a schedule. It allows me to manage my time more efficiently instead of wasting 3 hours reading fanfiction on Tumblr (whoops). Some things can be wild card events – like although I would really like to learn sign language, I only have a stipulation that I must watch another video on that every two days. Other things, like working out, need more regularity. Sticking to whatever schedule you create for yourself is so so so important. It aids in discipline and focus, which are two things a slayer absolutely needs.

  • Write that routine down

I’m a huge fan of writing everything down, and my list pad is my most-used item on my desk. Not only will it be easier to remember and refer to if you write down your own routine, but it will also help keep you accountable toward what you’re supposed to be doing.

  • Find an accountability partner

Speaking of accountability… It’s more fun (though perhaps more embarrassing) to workout with a friend. Having someone to go through it with you, though, or at least talk about it, is a great benefit. It can be as simple as a classmate who is as equally dedicated to school as you, or a group of friends who have your back. Even cleaning your room is much easier when you have a friend who agrees to clean her own room simultaneously.

  • Pace yourself

Don’t rush, but don’t be slow either. Find a balance that works for you, both time-wise and energy-wise. Take care of yourself, but also take care of your ish.

  • Reward yourself

Always, always reward yourself. It doesn’t have to be big – although it certainly can be. Reward yourself by reading that book you’ve been wanting to for a long time or going out for some ice cream. Rewards can also be a great motivator. For example, the only reason I survived finals week was because I told myself I was going to treat myself to a new pair of shoes when it was over. Every math test I took, I also set different rewards for myself – if I made a 100% I would go buy myself a book, if I made a 90% I would watch Captain America (who is bae), if I made 80% I would get an hour to be completely and utterly lazy.

  • Deal with failure

Don’t be discouraged when you fail, but allow yourself to be disappointed. Disappointment is one of the worst feelings, but channel it correctly and it can become a reason to do better. Failure is what gives success its flavor.

Request: Maybe an imagine where the reader is deaf?

A/N: I really like this request! Thank you so much! I was really nervous about writing it because I wanted to make it as loving and realistic as possible; I really hope I did it some justice! xx


You wake up with a gentle touch on your face and as you flutter your eyes open you’re met with soft hazel eyes.

“Good Morning,” Newt mouths and you grin in return. “Good Morning,” you sign back weakly, as your tired limbs lazily move in front of you.

Biting his lip softly, Newt curls up his fingers and taps on his mouth a number of times, slowly. “Breakfast?” he mouths, and you nod back slowly. “Please.” you sign back.

As Newt bends down to give you a soft peck on your forehead and stands up, you can’t help but smile to yourself and close your eyes. Living in silence used to be a nightmare for you, you often felt like you were living inside a bubble.

Always able to see but never participate.

Of course, you were thankful for what you had, but your heart always seemed to break just a tiny bit whenever you would see children laughing or someone walking with their headphones in, head bobbing to the beat of the song.

You had been deaf for as long as you could remember and although it wasn’t easy to learn both sign language and english it kept you occupied enough to not notice what you were missing out on.

Everything really changed when you met Newt, in fact, you could recall it as easily as if it was yesterday.

Being alone was always a preference of yours really, it never bothered you to be out by yourself, truth be told, that was exactly how you would entertain yourself.

Although it’s true you couldn’t hear, you were fully convinced that sounds were nothing but a distraction at times. There were loads of things you could do if one simply observed- and because that’s all you did, you were the absolute best at it.

Your thoughts were proven correct when you felt someone bump into you.

Immediately, you retreated and turned, only to come face to face with one of the softest faces you had ever seen. “Sorry,” you saw the man say and in return you shyly smiled before looking down.

It was only seconds later before you looked back up, but by the time you did, the man was already ten steps ahead of you; walking calmly away.

However just as you were about to go off on your merry way, you felt your foot step on something hard, and as you looked down, your eyes focused on what looked like a fancy wooden stick. You bent down and carefully picked up the strange object, perplexed by its magnificent structure.

Seconds passed by before you connected two and two together and before you knew it, you were running after the strange man with soft eyes. You couldn’t help but nearly run into him as you approached him, causing him to widen his eyes in alarm.

You saw him mutter something that was just way too quick for you to decipher as he steadied you, but in reply you merely held up the wooden stick, causing his eyes to widen the size of dinner plates.

“Where did you get this?” you saw him ask and you signed in reply- but as soon as your hands started moving, his eyes met yours with a worried expression. “I’m sorry.”  you saw him say and your hopes fell.

Your eyes lit up as an idea popped into your head and slowly you pointed towards the stick and then quickly to the floor, you bit your lip hoping he understood. “I dropped it?” he asked and you nodded furiously, happy that he understood what you were trying to say.

You couldn’t help but sigh to yourself as he walked away slowly after thanking you numerous times, but before you could walk away, you saw him turn to look at you before turning away quickly once his eyes met yours.

Flush coated your cheeks as your hand found its way to your chest only to realize that your heart was practically skipping beats. Shaking your head, you decided that you had enough adventure for one day and began your way home.

-Crutchie
>son of Hephaestus fight me
>made it to camp when he was ten
>was claimed pretty quick
>he’s an amputee and had a normal prosthetic leg, a nice one, but not magic or divine or anything
>his newfound siblings right away wanted to make him a new one, a weapon used celestial bronze one, but he insisted on doing it himself since it was his own body
>it took him a while and he’s continually adjusting it but he built himself a leg and it’s awesome? Super steampunk looking, bronze, it has like ten weapons in it, it’s just really cool
>while he was working on it though, he did let his siblings upgrade his crutch and when he pulls the handle it pretty much turns into a super cool sword and he has his own super cool fighting style centered around his leg and his crutch
>his dad is so proud Hephaestus looks down whenever he’s fighting and is like “look at my son fucking shit up and messing with Ares’s kids and winning capture the flag look at him go”
-Jack
>son of Apollo also fight me on this
>his relationship with Apollo is really chill bc lbr Apollo gives no shits and Jack Kelly gives negative shits sometimes after sunset you’ll just find Jack and a few of his sibling chilling by the lake laughing at their dad’s shitty haikus while Apollo is busy turning the lake into a hot tub
>Jack is really good with missile weapons and you’d think he’d use a bow and arrows but he bribed a Hephaestus camper into making him a fucking rocket launcher that doubles as a fireworks launcher and you better believe he uses it
>he hates basketball because he doesn’t like running for that long straight but he can sink a half court shot every time and he’s really good at baseball
>he also got Apollos music abilities, so he’s really good at writing tunes but horrible at poetry and lyrics he usually enlists the Aphrodite kids on that part
>he did inherit the thing where he can curse people to talk in rhymes and he abuses it greatly sometimes half the camp will be walking around swearing in rhymes about Jack
>he and Crutchie are best friends and have been since Crutchie was part of the group that rescued Jack ala Percy and Thalia in the beginning of Titans Curse
-The Jacobs Siblings
>are simultaneously the envy and confusion of the camp
>Davey is a son of Athena
>Sarah is a daughter of Demeter
>and Les is a son of Hecate
>it’s pretty rare for a god to have more than one kid with the same mortal let alone one mortal have three kids with three different gods
>Davey is so good at planning, big picture kind of stuff, and organization, you don’t want to be against him during capture the flag
>Sarah can controls plants and you also don’t want to be against her during capture the flag she’ll turn the whole forest into a weapon
>Les is magic but he either can’t or doesn’t want to control it so when he’s happy everything is fine but if he’s mad he’ll curse you without quite knowing what he’s doing
>Davey and Sarah and so by extension Les are also really close with Jack
-therefore Athena, Demeter, Hephaestus and Apollo are Allies in Capture the flag
-you don’t want to mess with them because they have all the tactical prowess of Athena, the control of the forest itself from Demeter, the inventions and weapons of Hephaestus and the impulsivity and lack of common sense of Apollo so they’re ruthless almost on accident
-Katherine
>Arrives when she’s thirteen and is claimed by Athena
>causes a stir because her dad is a super famous author and she’s famous for being his trouble making daughter
>she and Davey are super close super fast and so are she and Jack and the alliance is made even stronger
>she fights with two daggers with these pokey things sort of like a wrist guard coming off the hilts but really the balance the knives for throwing and she has good aim
-Race
>son of Poseidon and he’s very proud of it
>has never been on the losing team for capture the flag except when he’s on the same team as Ares because he hates Oscar and Morris who are the head counselors and when he’s on their team he takes a nap
>when he’s not on their team he turns the river into a wall of water and only lets a few people past so his team will win
-Spot
>visits from Camp Jupiter once in a while
>is a son of Trivia, who is the roman equivalent of Hecate
>he fights with magic
>his mom gave him a set of magic dice that pretty much is just enchanted D&D dice that help him make decisions and predictions
>he’s also a pretty badass sword fighter but he’d rather not have to
>when he finally asks Race out he legitimately gets slapped in the face with a wave by Poseidon and as a result specifies for like a year that none of his sacrifice is for the god of the sea, wether in Greek or roman form
>he also adopts Les as his personal trainee and takes him to Camp Jupiter for war games and poor Davey is stressed
-Romeo
>is a child of Aphrodite
>is also a horrible matchmaker in that he can tell if somebody would be a great couple but is really bad at getting them together
>he’s also afab genderfluid and when he came out Aphrodite herself came down from Olympus and gave him a makeover and that’s their claim to fame
>his mortal mom (Aphrodite is Not Straight cmon guys) named him Juliet and he kept up the Shakespeare theme when she picked their new name
>in entirely in love with Specs and is ridiculous about it
-Specs
>nonbinary child of Hephaestus
>very buff
>also very in love with Romeo
>they and Davey invented a new sign language that the whole camp learned because their deaf it’s really useful in all sorts of things because only Camp Half Blood people know it
>their glasses not only improve their impressively bad vision but also let them see through the Mist so that’s useful
-there’s not really a plot I guess I just really like the idea of them in the PJO universe
-so yeah add on all you want
-also if anyone literally anyone wants to draw Crutchie with his leg and crutch in this au I’d be eternally grateful
-and finally I’m so sorry about the formatting I’m on Mobile and I’ll fix it when I’m not anymore

Keep yourself nice and healthy this season and try to avoid any of these symptoms :) I have a pretty long little section about my journey through finding vocabulary this morning under the keep reading sign because I genuinely like sharing my language learning process with you.  That being said, if any of you are native speakers or you just have a better understanding than I do of a particular word or when to use a specific word vs another, please send me a message.  I really love to hear feedback, and I just want this to be a place where we can all learn.

Also, if any of you are here to learn English from Spanish, please let me know and I can try to focus on both sides of the equation.

INTJ Tip: Learn Sign Language

I started learning American Sign Language a few years ago, and it’s one of the best decisions I ever made. I suggest it to everyone, but if you’re a naturally unexpressive introverted night-owl (like many INTJs are) it comes even more highly recommended.

Here’s my reasons why…

1. If you learn it with other people you hang around with, you can use it when you really don’t feel like talking. This is great if you hate talking in the morning or just when you’re enjoying the silence and don’t want to break it, but still have something to say.

2. If you are naturally inexpressive person, and want to become more naturally expressive, sign language helps a lot. There’s nothing wrong with being inexpressive, but a lot of times it makes communicating with other people harder. (If you aren’t very expressive, you know what I mean.) Sign language forces the speaker to exaggerate their motions and facial expressions to properly covey their point. Thus you become comfortable expressing yourself more often and are more used to doing it.

3. Like any other language, you can talk about things and people in front of other people who don’t know the language.

4. You can easily talk through windows and across large or noisy spaces instead of trying to shout.

5. If you don’t want to talk to an extroverted random stranger who decides to strike up a conversation, pretend you’re deaf/mute and sign something to them. 9 times out of 10, they will drop the conversation.

6. If you’re sick and your throat hurts, you still have a painless way of communicating.

anonymous asked:

Can I request RFA+Saeran and V reacting to finding out MC is deaf?

Sure thing!

Yoosung

  • He noticed that when he was talking to you, you were focused on his lips, rather than his eyes or something else
  • You told him that you could read lips pretty well, so he didn’t have to worry too much, but he still worried
  • He wanted to learn sign language to make it easier for you, so you helped him learn
  • He was constantly making sure he signed words correctly and he was really happy that you were teaching him, and being extremely patient about it as well
  • He felt bad because he called you pretty often on the phone before, so he tried to call through Skype or something similar when he wanted to talk to you
  • He had Seven make a video call for the RFA app to make it easier to converse with all the members, and would help the other members learn sign language as well

Zen

  • He wanted to know whether you were born this way or you gradually lost your hearing
  • And the best methods for communicating with you
  • He would try his best to learn sign language, and he made sure that you knew what was going on when he was with you
  • He liked how you could sense he was nearby without hearing him come in
  • He liked to say things in sign language that the other members didn’t know, such as something dirty, because he loved how flustered you got
  • He liked to learn all the nicknames he could call you, and he would never tell the other members what they meant just to fuck with them

Jaehee

  • She probably knew a few words in sign language, but she wanted to learn more from you
  • She would try her best to handle taking orders in the café, and she loved how some of the regular customers would sign words to make it easy for you
  • She wouln’t let anyone say bad stuff about you
  • And if she heard someone taking shit she’s gonna catch them outside
  • She’s good at martial arts I wouldn’t try her
  • And she was never too tired to sign with you if that’s your preferred method of communication

Jumin

  • Okay so I feel like he would have had some interaction with deaf CEOs so he would know sign language
  • And he’d probably be pretty good at it
  • Not only that, but he’d try to find some medical solution to your deafness if he could
  • Him and his wealth, what can you do
  • And he loves calling you nicknames in sign language
  • If you speak he likes how your voice sounds
  • He will demand a video call feature from Seven

Seven/Saeyoung

  • He’s obviously known for a while
  • And implemented a video call feature in the first few days to help you
  • But let you decide when to talk about it
  • He also learned sign language as quickly as he could so he could converse with you
  • And when he remembered the bomb, he played it off by casually inviting you to stay with him to avoid scaring you
  • He had to talk about it but he didn’t want you to be there alone
  • And he liked your heightened senses

V

  • Okay so you paired up with a mostly blind man
  • And V was worried all the time about talking with you
  • So Seven made an app to help your communication (mostly for your sake)
  • It helped a lot
  • And this partially motivated V to get the surgery
  • So one day you two are hanging out and he uses the app to tell you he has a surprise
  • And he surprises you with the calendar that has the appointment set up for his surgery
  • You started crying because he was healing slowly
  • Pure cinnamon roll I love him a lot

Saeran

  • He was nervous all the time about signing wrong and offending you
  • He acted chill around you but he was dying
  • And when he finally told you, you tried to reassure him by practicing with him more
  • You also told him that he could speak, he had to face you fully though
  • In secret he learned as much as he could about deafness, and he was curious if there was a surgery to help you
  • But if there wasn’t, or there was but you didn’t want it, he wouldn’t force anything

Hello may i request headcanons/scenarios (idk what's better for you) of Aizawa, Tokoyami, Shinsou (separately) having an innately deaf s/o? I love this blog so much please bless me with your masterpieces and take your time :D

I did headcanons bc if the s/o is innately deaf all of them would’ve known from the start so there’t not much of a scenario since they’d treat them like a hearing person unless it came to vocal communication or noise related things. if you give me a more detailed scenario of them doing something with the s/o (like a special date or situation) then I’d love to write a longer piece for this ^.^

also thank you for requesting bird boy I get no asks for him and he’s my favorite actually these are some of my top 5 fav characters so ily

and thank you thats so sweet of you to call these ramblings masterpieces lol


Aizawa

  • whenever you want his attention you can pull on his scarf thing
  • he’s a very quiet guy so there’s not really much adjustment to make 
  • he started learning sign language the day after he met you so he’s rlly good at it by the time the two of you are dating
  • likes the little sounds you make all the time because you have no idea you’re making them
  • you like to be near him when he has phone calls bc its so cool to hug him and feel the vibrations while he talks he likes it too

Tokoyami

  • when he first met you he literally thought you were just a quiet person 
  • dark shadow would argue with him a lot when you hung out with tokoyami and you could never figure out why
  • it was bc dark shadow kept telling him to ask you out but he was shy
  • he learned sign language a while back bc he was bored but he never realized he’d use it so much
  • one time you asked him if he had a normal person voice or a bird voice and dark shadow thought it was hilarious 

Shinsou

  • absolutely confused when you walked up to him and started signing to him so he found a pen and paper and that’s how you met each other
  • hes kinda relieved bc you have no reason to be afraid of him as his quirk won’t work on you since you don’t speak to him verbally
  • not a very social guy so this whole communication thing is new to him 
  • spell stuff out on his hands and arms he loves it 
  • not much is different from a relationship with two hearing people tbh
