psa for the yoi fandom: russian names & how to use them

Russian guides: masterpost | patronyms | terms of affection | answered asks

I’m going to start by swearing this isn’t me just complaining but a general resource for the Yuri on Ice fandom because I’ve noticed some mistakes in the naming conventions used among the fandom and want to help correct them. Especially in how the fandom treats diminutives. I absolutely love seeing the huge amount of interest in Russian diminutives, etc. in fanart and fics and hopefully this breakdown will help continue that trend and interest and even spur some more ideas in fandom content.

So let’s go through some important details below the cut!

I've been meaning to ask you, how do you get the colors in the lineart look so nice and smooth when the lineart is sketchy and cool? I've seen other artists do it too, and I wanted to do that, but when I did, the color shows up behind it and it looks really ugly. Please answer and/or post a video on how you color you art and keep it looking slightly sketchy! I love and look up to your art! Please reply! Thank you!!

Keep in mind i use 

I hope this helps!

  • /after dance practice/
  • Chanyeol: let's go home!
  • Kyungsoo: mmkay
  • /on the way home/
  • Chanyeol: it's Junmyeon hyung and Jongin! Guys!
  • Kyungsoo: *squints hard*
  • Junmyeon: Chanyeol! *drags jongin who is hiding behind* hey! Oh, hello Kyungsoo-ssi
  • Kyungsoo: *bows*
  • Jongin: *still hides*
  • Chanyeol: where are you two headed?
  • Junmyeon: we're going to eat
  • Chanyeol: Soo, let's eat with them. I'm hungry.
  • Jongin: *tugs Suho's shirt, shakes head, whines*
  • Junmyeon: Huh?
  • Kyungsoo: that's fine with me
  • Jongin: *whispers, shakes head* i don't want to eat with that hyung
  • Kyungsoo: *shy, looks down but steals glances at jongin, he knows jongin is a great dancer*
  • Chanyeol: So where should we eat?
  • Junmyeon: *pulls jongin behind and throws an arm around him, ruffles his hair* don't be shy now. My treat. Follow me.
  • Jongin: *looks at kyungsoo, looks away*
  • Kyungsoo: *worried, looks at jongin, walks beside chanyeol but would steal glances at jongin because he's very worried*
  • /in the resto/
  • Jongin: hyung, i don't want to sit beside him. he's scary.
  • Kyungsoo: *looks at jongin, smiles* sit down now jongin-ssi and eat. *pats the seat beside him*
  • Jongin: *eyes wide because wow when kyungsoo smiles it's like when he first fell in love with dancing*
  • Junmyeon: *chuckles, gives chanyeol a knowing look*
  • Chanyeol: just eat jongin
  • Kyungsoo: *serves jongin rice and grilled meat, looks at jongin worriedly* i'm sorry if i seemed i scared you
  • Jongin: *looks at kyungsoo intently* y-you didn't
  • Kyungsoo: *chuckles* i know i did. this is not the first time this happened to me. do you want more meat or chicken?
  • Jongin: but why do you look like--
  • Kyungsoo: *squints hard* like this?
  • Jongin: *nods*
  • Kyungsoo: because i have bad astigmatism. i don't like wearing contacts *scratches his nape* uh i broke my glasses so i'm not wearing one lately and i'd squint like that.

So I received this MOST EXCELLENT Pigeon!Phil for my birthday!!  It was commissioned by someone who signed themselves just as a reader, from @pigeoncomics

It is the best pigeon.  I love him so much.  (hugs the snazzy pigeon!Phil)  He is going to go into a frame as soon as I find one that’s the right size.

BUT.  Did you know you could get a pigeon (or other, lesser bird) of your very own?  That is correct!  @pigeoncomics is actually doing a fundraiser right now for a local birb-related charity.  You can find the information HERE!

I will say, however, that these prices are very low.  If you can afford to, you should definitely chip in a few extra bucks.  Stay tuned, since I’m off this weekend, I might be doing something of my own to help the birbs. 8)

No one made a move to help him, and she struck him once more with her power. The red marble splintered where he hit it, spiderwebbing toward me. With wave after wave she hit him. Rhys groaned.

“Stop,” I breathed, blood filling my mouth as I strained a hand to reach her feet. “Please.”

Rhys’s arms buckled as he fought to rise, and blood dripped from his nose, splattering on the marble. His eyes met mine.

The bond between us went taut. I flashed between my body and his, seeing myself through his eyes, bleeding and broken and sobbing.

 I’m just. Going to curl into a ball and cry myself to sleep okay? “No one made a move to help him” is just so…painful yet justified on their parts. Rhys has carved out this place for himself, this no-man’s land. And it’s what I talked about before with the question of how far he went and whether it was ever too far. And he walks an incredibly thin line here to truly fall in a neutral zone whereby no-one will help him…but they won’t help Amarantha either. But he’s alienated himself and I wonder about that over the last 50 years. With no allies but no real enemies either. Just emptiness. It’s not difficult to see how Feyre and Rhys bond so closely in ACOMAF with the similar experiences that they’ve had. 

And I also love that the follow-up to this, to Feyre realising that no-one was helping Rhys…is to reach out and help him herself. Amarantha has shattered her bones at this point, tortured her far beyond anything she’s ever endured…and she lies on the floor, bloody and battered and exhausted and she asks her to stop…She asks her to stop hurting Rhys. 

There’s some really painful parallels going on here? Rhys slaved for Amarantha for fifty years and didn’t dream of killing her for himself. He didn’t pick up that dagger for himself. He was content to let Tamlin have that final kill; he’d already told Feyre that. He picked it up for Feyre. He picked it up for his mate. Amarantha hurting Feyre was what pushed him into action. And that’s just. So important for their dynamic. Rhys saves Feyre in ACOMAF. But as I’ve said before, she’s already saved him in ACOTAR. 

And I love that it’s at this moment that Feyre becomes fully aware of that bond and how closely it binds her to Rhys. She still thinks it’s the bargain, the tattoo, but she feels it in this moment. As they reach for each other. As these two neutral people, the ones that weren’t worth either helping or harming beyond what was happening, these two battered, broken souls made to feel worthless by the world, who won’t lift a finger to defend themselves, reach for each other, help each other and take that first step together down a very long road to healing.

I've been looking like crazy for a colorful hanfu that's lose and flowly with big sleeves that ties at the waist but I can't find a decent one anywhere. Do you have any recommendations? Please I want to feel like a floaty goddess! Thank you very muchh

Hey, thanks for the question! Always happy to help.

Going by your description, you want a ruqun/襦裙, but not the qixiong-ruqun/齐胸襦裙 because those tie at the chest. This is a tricky search because most ruqun for sale have narrow sleeves, and the ones that do have big sleeves are usually the chest-high ones. And because of the seasonal nature of hanfu collections, a lot of the big-sleeved ruqun in photos are no longer sold! I definitely get your frustrations. With that said, here are some of my recommendations (warning: LOTS of big photos):

Word Collectors

They met nightly, the word collectors. Using candles for light, they sat under the stars, trading words like baseball cards.

The words they found were often left lying on the ground, discarded by a careless passerby. Words that rolled smoothly off the tongue like honey. Words that stung like daggers. Ones with strange spellings, yacht and vacuum. Words used too carelessly, best, love, and okay. 

The word collectors swept them up and placed them in their purses and briefcases, carefully, subtly. 

Each day passed and they gathered more words.

Each day passed and they gained more power.

Each day passed and a new sentence was created.

Each day passed and more ideas were formed.

In this world of hidden letters and taboo sentences, words were reserved for the powerful, for the wealthy. They were reserved who were fortunate enough to matter in the eyes of those who were fortunate enough to decide who mattered. Some gave out their words, gave others power, or at least tried. But not enough. 

The word collectors still met every night in secret, desperately trying to feed off of the words of others. The words of those who used language altogether too carelessly, as if their speech was nothing. 

As the days, years, weeks dragged on the word collectors realised something. They were never going to find enough words. 

So they disbanded.

And reformed.

This time as word creators.

And they stopped searching for the words of others. 

And began using their own.

And then their power was

limitless

And if they wanted to say something, 

Then by God, they were going to say them

Their influence

limitless

And no-one could stop them

Because who can stop a towering tsunami or a raging fire?

Their words were

limitless

fucc,. i love your mas headcanons so much, they always make my day

!!!! I’m so!!! glad!!!!!! ;u;

whispers look, look, I have more!!!

  • they’re not Really for “”cheesy”” (idk, the word isn’t cheesy but i can’t think of it haha) nicknames/pet names like babe or honey or stuff like that but ace does give them pet names that he mumbles to them in spanish or portugese when he’s tired, and like??? they’re (sabo especially) Overdramatic ™ with their nicknames??? Like, “light of my life, warmth of my soul, apple of my eye, do the fucking dishes” kind of thing
  • Have you ever seen those gifs where someone will just run at someone else and cling to them. Touchy feely to the extreme, all parts of our bodies are touching well Whoops le shrug. That is Ace. 100% ace. Ace would t o t a l l y fall asleep and then refuse to get up bc he likes cuddling but then marco would just stand up and take ace w/ him. Sabo tries but doesn’t have the thigh strength, lol, when he works out w/ koala he’s like p l e a s e we have to do squats so that i can pick up ace for long periods of time and she’s like you’re a loser 
  • ALSO HEADCANON THAT MARCO’S THE LIGHTEST??? SO ACE WILL LIKE SIT IN HIS LAP OR W/E AND MARCO WILL LIKE #DIE BC ACE IS 95% MUSCLE AND SO FUCKING HEAVY AND IT K I L L S HIM BUT ALSO ACE IS SO WARM AND ACE SITTING IN HIS LAP MEANS HE GETS TO HUG AND CUDDLE AND KISS ACE’S BACK AND LIKE HE JUST. RLLY LIKES BEING CLOSE TO ACE. SO HE DOESN’T SAY ANYTHING. 
  • Sabo also!!! likes ace sitting in his lap!!! bc ace is heavy and presses down on him and when he’s a bit Out of it it’s rlly nice to just have someone??? there???? and then he can cuddle ace or like hide in his back and just Not Think abt loud things. OFC tho like he’s the one who’s like Wow Ace going to fucking Crush your boyfriend,  is that the plan??????/ Do you not want to buy two wedding rings or two anniversary gifts anymore?? ? There are nicer ways to let me down than Literally Killing Me. Sabo is such an Asshole
  • tbh tho like sabo will pull ace on top of him and ace will kind of flop to marco’s side and lean on him rather than outright sit; sabo’s the one who’s like Yes this lap is Mine Now
  • ALSO MARCO’S SL I G H T L Y TALLER THAN THEN BUT BC HE’S LIGHTER HE GETS DRAGGED ONTO THEIR LAPS ALL THE TIME AND AT FIRST HE WAS JUST. SO NOT USED TO IT. HE WAS ALWAYS AFRAID HE WAS GOING TO CRUSH ACE OR SABO, OR LIKE ELBOW THEM, JUST IMAGINE LANKY MCFUCKIN GEE AWKWARD PERCHED ON ACE/SABO’S LAP WHILE THEY’RE LAUGHING  AND TALKING AND IMAGINE THEIR HAND ON MARCO’S HIP OR THEIR CHEEKS AGAINST HIS BICEP AND GIVING MARCO SOFT, RANDOM KISSES TO HELP HIM CHILL OUT ((shit fuck now i really want to write that FUCK. goddAMN))
  • uHHHHHH marco also has a habit of!!! buying them things that they look like they might like. Just kind of. Accidentally collects things and he’s like just absentmindedly thinking oh sabo would like that/would look nice in that shirt, oh ace was complaining about not having any spare metal to melt and play w/, and then before he knows it he has his wallet out and arms full of random shit for them and he’s like Fuck.
  • Ace and Sabo are like cats. They just. randomly dump dead animals, rocks, etc. in front of Marco’s door. That’s their way of giving gifts; here look, we bought you these things. 
  • THEY ALSO DID IT BEFORE THEY STARTED DATING????? MARCO WAS REALLY KIND OF WEIRDED OUT BUT ALSO WELL OKAY THEY’RE S H A R I N G, USUALLY SOMEONE GETS ALMOST STABBED BY A FORK WHEN THEY EAT/TRY AND GET TOLD TO SHARE, SO I’D BETTER ENCOURAGE THIS. I GUESS? 
  • Ace and Sabo were like Yes Excellent, he Likes Us. Obviously he has figured out what this means and accepted it, he’s Ours Now. (Marco had Not figured out what it meant, he was Super Fucking Confused by it all but. look. he’s so fucking gone on those two.)
  • imagining some of the weird habits ace/sabo picked up from living like 10 yrs in a forest is a Good Time. Like………sabo maybe not as much as ace but w/ ace, even w/ makino helping him and shit like that just. just. he so 100% has Weird Things that just. he thinks are completely normal and everyone else thinks is batshit insane. Seakings??? Ehhh, crocs were about that relative size when he was younger. Typhoon??? Well one time luffy Flew the Fuck Away during a storm, this is Easier to weather bc he only has to worry abt himself. Flirting??? Never. This boy Does Not Fucking Get It. As soon as he realises he likes someone he’s like cool. okay. i dont know what im doing. fuck. and he tries to copy other people anD LIKE. MAN USUALLY IT ENDS SO SO BADLY. 
  • And like i mean i hc ace as demi so omfg it would take him forever to realise he liked anybody. he’s USELESS.

how-will-i-ever-choose  asked:

Hi! I'm very interested in Trigedasleng (I'll soon have a presentation on a conference about it) and I'd like to ask you about Trigedasleng phonology. I just saw your post about one of your other languages' phonology and thought about sounds in Trig.

I suppose I could. I never thought it was very important because the phonology is almost identical to English. But just for fun, here goes!

  • STOPS/AFFRICATES: p/b, t/d, tʃ/dʒ, k/g
  • APPROXIMANTS/TAPS: ɹ, ɾ, l, j, w
  • FRICATIVES: f/v, θ, s/z, ʃ, h
  • NASALS: m, n, ŋ

Phonotactics are roughly the same as English (so [ŋ] can’t begin a word, and [h] can’t end a syllable). Aspiration works exactly the same as it does in English. There is no longer any instance of intervocalic [d]. All such instances (and most instances of intervocalic [t]) become [ɾ]. Gemination is now a thing in Trigedasleng. Just kind of happened naturally. Old *ʒ became [ʃ] in most cases; [dʒ] in some others. All instances of *ð were lost, being replaced either by [d] or [ɾ], depending on its position in the word (or devoiced to [θ]).

The vowels have been altered radically:

  • HIGH: i u
  • MID: e ɛ ǝ ɔ o
  • LOW: a

And, because the writers wanted it, Trigedasleng retains the diphthongs [ai] and [au] (and in some cases [ɔi]). The actual quality of the vowels differs from English. The high vowels aren’t as high, but aren’t lax, either. /ɔ/ is always rounded, but often not as high as standard [ɔ]. The low vowel is the remnant of old *æ, which has centralized a bit.

There are a lot of sound changes that took a bat to English to produce Trigedasleng, but this is the end result. Thanks for the ask!
