if this would be considered one!

OK. This is interesting (I think I’m just going to commentate as I go along, instead of doing one absurdly long post.)

The first time Bum addresses Sangwoo is when he’s jackin it.

This just says “..Sangwoo Sangwoo…” with no honorific. It’s a bit unusual to address someone with no honorific at all.

This says “Oh Sangwoo (Sangwoo’s full name, that’s not an “oh” of passion). And “Sangwoo-ya..” 

“-ya” is a suffix that implies a certain amount of friendliness and familiarity. You would usually not call someone this unless you’d known them a little while and you consider each other friends. (This is usually how Bum refers to Sangwoo in his head.)

my dashboard calling fandom out for making magnus all ~small is making me want fic where alec is the one stealing magnus's shirts because magnus is frigging ripped and alec likes wearing magnus's accidentally-stretched-out shirts

i actually wrote something like this

but you have no idea how much i love the idea of magnus’s shirts fitting alec around the shoulders all wrong because magnus has stretched them out or they’re just tailored to fit magnus. and i think alec would love it, love pulling on one of his shirts and pressing his face to it. imagine that plaid shirt he was wearing settled on alec, all that chest hair peeking through where it’s unbuttoned, and it’s just clear it fits magnus just that much better. it couldn’t matter less because alec is just smelling the shirt, blissful as hell.

also consider magnus busting out of alec’s shirts and alec casually losing his shit. he’s just staring, unfocused at the way magnus’s biceps strain against one of his shirts. his eyebrows are raised and he has that utterly hazy look in his eyes, his lips pressed together and his breathing is all ragged.

“alec…? alexander, i asked you a question.”

alec doesn’t respond for a good couple of seconds, breathing in really slowly and uncrossing his legs so he can spread them. he blinks and clears his throat then, seeming to come back into the moment. “what’s up?” but his voice is a wrecked kind of hoarse.

the whole room is staring at him and magnus is fighting a smug smirk.

BTS Reaction - Teaching them English slang

levithesmolsmolbean said: Can i get a reaction to their gf ( a native english speaker) trying to teach them slang (that doesnt translate well into korean)

So I’m an American and for this one I’m just gonna use English slang that I use with my friends on a daily basis. I’m sorry if some of you don’t understand the slang or what it means - if it’s something you’re confused about please message me and I will explain! Some of these do translate fine into Korean - but the meanings of each word are obviously different than what they actually mean when they’re considered English slang.

Jimin:

“’Rip?’ Why do you say that everytime I insult one of the hyungs?” Jimin would ask. You’d just laugh and tell him that it’s English slang, and truly doesn’t translate well into Korean. 

“It means like..how do I even explain myself,” you laugh, before continuing. “Saying ‘rip’ is like saying “ouch, that one hurt” or “that was insulting” to someone who was just insulted by someone else. It’s ironic.” 

Jimin would just look at you weirdly before slowly walking away. 

Jungkook:

“She’s a snake? What do you mean?” He’d ask, looking at you and back at the phone where your boss was telling you that you had to come in early and work late the next day.

“It means she’s two-faced. Sorry,” you’d laugh, and Jungkook would probably, over the course of the next few days, send you snake memes when you were apart. You weren’t even sure if he understood what calling someone a “snake” meant. Oh well.

Suga:

“No. Yoongi. Repeat after me: SAL-TEY. Salty.” You’d be halfway through an English lesson with Yoongi. He had asked you to teach him more English and its safe to say English slang was not his strong suit.

“Salty? Like your ramen is salty? Because that happens a lot when I let Jungkook make it.” Suga would say, and you’d burst out laughing at his take on the word. “It means you’re not necessarily mad at someone, but their actions are distasteful and you’re annoyed with them.”

“Oh, alright. I got,” he began, lifting an eyebrow and smugness taking over his features, “salty at Jin for arguing yesterday. How’s that.”

Namjoon:

He’s pretty fluent in English, so there wasn’t a ton he could learn from you. Although he knew textbook English and how to speak and write it, he wasn’t familiar with a lot of the slang words. You’d constantly speak in English and he appreciated it when you did because it helped him with his own pronounciation and learning, but then you’d say some shit like this:

“Ha, bet.”

He’d stop his sassy argument with you and say, “Bet? What are we betting?” The confused look on your face made you burst out with laughter. “No, not betting, but like - when you say “bet” it means like, “Oh yeah, just watch, I’ll do it, no problem.” Namjoon would begin saying the word a thousand times a day after that.

Taehyung:

You: this is going be lit I’m so excited

When Taehyung received that text message from you, he stared at it for a long time. First of all, the message in it’s entirety was in all Korean besides the word “lit.” Being the awkward noodle he is, he’d be standing in the middle of the sidewalk and trying to sound out the three letter word while people rushed past him, hitting him once in awhile as they hurried away.

Eventually, he’d get frustrated and call you. “It means that you’re going to have a good time and you know it’s going to be fun.” Later that day during practice, he’d tell all the boys that this particular choreography was going to be “lit.” They’d just stare at him while Namjoon burst into laughter.

J-Hope:

“K.” 

It’s all your text message had said, and Hoseok couldn’t figure out what you meant. He understands that it’s an English letter, but why would you just send a random “K” in the middle of an argument?

The two of you had been arguing over appointments and schedules over text and he had sent a paragraph explaining why he couldn’t cancel, and all he got back was “K.” He texted you back with, “What does that mean?” 

You’d walk in the door, argument forgotten as you laugh about him not knowing what you meant. “I was mad at you. You send that to people you’re kinda annoyed with when you want them to stop talking.” You said, glancing at his expression. He looked blankly down at his phone then back up at you before saying, “K,” and walking away with a smug look on his face.

Jin:

In your contact list, you had your best friend listed as “THOT” with a fire emoji and a few hearts next to it. Jin heard your phone beep with a message, and picked it up to see the word blinking on your home screen. When you came back from the kitchen, he’d ask, “Y/N, what does ‘tha-oot mean?” 

You’d begin to laugh so hard at his pronounciation before grabbing your phone and looking at where he got the word from before saying, “Thot. I affectionately call Y/B/F/N that because it’s funny. It means like, well, it could be negative or positive. It’s kinda bad.”

Jin would just give you a disapproving look before shaking his head and turning his attention back to the TV.

TBH as a patrilineal Jew. I can't see orthodoxy rejecting patrilineals as anything but intolerant.

Just Orthodoxy, or all of the other denominations and groups which also maintain matrilineal descent only? That’s a rhetorical question, you made it very clear what you meant in your ask. ;-)

You may disagree with others. And you’d not be the first individual to reject the Oral Torah’s matrilineal descent. I do know full well how it feels to be rejected as a Jew — and trust me, patrilineals are much more widely accepted than Anusim. Neither Reform nor Recon. ever had my back, on the contrary. I don’t want to turn this into oppression olympics, just looking to put things into perspective… After all, it’s to this inbox that you sent this ask, knowing that an Orthodox Jew would be the one reading and answering it.

So, instead of going around bashing people, have you considered learning why is that that different Jews will believe and do different things? Why is there Jewish plurality? Because I would recommend you do that, just like I recommend everyone around me who says things about other groups which I think is/are inappropriate. Respect goes both ways.

To be quite honest, I’m tired of non-Orthodox Jews coming into our homes (physical and/or virtual), our synagogues, to say that we do is wrong, that we are just intolerant people… That’s not how you foster healthy dialogue.

anonymous asked:

how is octavia abusive? not trying to start something I just want to know why you think she is?

she’s been violently lashing out at her loved ones since season two

Lincoln - she punched him in season two when he was struggling with a forced addiction. Then she proceeded to lecture him about his own culture which she had been a part of for like a week. Also, and I don’t know if this would be considered abusive but it is worth mentioning, Octavia was angry with Lincoln for trying to fit in with the sky people in season three (despite the fact that she did the exact same thing with the grounders) and she regularly talks down to him (and many others) and get’s mad at him when she isn’t getting her own way or when he does something she doesn’t like.

Indra - she lashed out at Indra when Indra was badly injured and traumatised after the massacre then lectured her on being a grounder, which again is something she is often doing with grounders, lecturing them about their own culture. She held back on the violence this time but still, she used the threat of violence knowing that Indra couldn’t fight back.  This isn’t the way you treat a traumatised loved one. holding back on the violence doesn’t mean the situation wasn’t abusive.

Bellamy - now this is the worst one, (not that the other situations weren’t awful but this is the most violent she’s ever been to a loved one) after bellamy came to her to tell her that he was wrong to side with  pike and ask her what he can do to help she drugged him, chained him to a rock, left him there for hours then after Lincoln was killed (which I understand was awful for her but it doesn’t justify abuse) she took it out on bellamy, who was still chained up, by beating him half to death. He had scars on his face for weeks afterwards.

I think the worst thing about this is that the show never portrays her as abusive, in fact they portray her as being right and her victims as being in the wrong. Octavia is still treated like a hero by the show and the fandom which is honestly disgusting. If you show these gifs to anyone who doesn’t watch the show I can guarantee that they will likely say that this character is abusive.

Another thing about the above situations is that all of her victims were in a vulnerable position which is something you often see amongst abusers and their victims. The abuser is usually in a position of power and the victim is usually in a somewhat vulnerable position. Octavia’s abusive behaviour towards her loved ones whenever they do something that she believes is “wrong” and things don’t go her way has become a pattern which means she fits the definition of an abuser.

I haven’t included her violence and lashing out towards other people just her close loved ones because these are the situations that I consider to be abusive  but there have been a number of other situations where she has lashed out violently whenever she’s been angry and when things don’t go her way.

what if Carry On had daemons

Hear me out though. Baz would have a peregrine falcon: historically considered noble and aristocratic, a skilled hunter, mates for life. Also their shit is acidic which I find highly appropriate.

Simon has an otter: adorable, clingy, protects his family. (They also have favorite stones. This is very important.)

Penny has a tasmanian devil: cute as hell, will fuck you up, intelligent. Eat their own children when hungry.

Agatha has a veery, which is a type of thrush: unassuming-looking, often mistaken for a robin, sweet-voiced. You wouldn’t find one in England- they’re native to America (ahem meta ahem). Also they’re the only type of songbird that imitates its own voice which I find significant.

anonymous asked:

Would Gilbert ever be jealous of Katte?

I guess that would depend on how you interpret Gilbert’s relationship with Frederick post 1730. Personally, based on my own interpretation of Gibbo, he wouldn’t have been jealous of Katte at all. He didn’t start developing romantic feelings for Fritz until about the early to mid-1730s post Kustrin and didn’t start seriously considering the possibility of pursuing a relationship with his king until after the Battle of Mollwitz in the First Silesian war. Prior to all of that, Gilbert viewed Frederick more or less as a dear friend and did everything that he could to make the poor prince’s life just a little bit easier.

If anything, he might have been a little suspicious of Hans at first ( especially after hearing about Mr. von Katte’s shenanigans from some of the troops *cough* parking a horse in someone’s living room *cough* ) because Gilbert has and will always want only the best for Fritz ; but no doubt after he sees just how much Hans means to his prince and he sees that the Lieutenant genuinely cares for him in turn, he’ll start warming up to Hans ( something Wilhelmine probably couldn’t wrap her head around ).

TLDR; They were more or less like this:

nipondaisuki  asked:

Hello! I am super interested in buying the new Hakuouki: Kyoto Winds when it comes out, and I was wondering if the routes for Hijikata, Okita, Saito, Heisuke, Harada, are the same. I heard that Kazama's route is different, but I just wanted to check with someone who has played the game. Also how would you rate this game comparing it to the other Hakuouki games? I have played them before and I was just wondering. Thanks so much for your time and input!

I hope you don’t mind me answering this openly for others considering buying the game.

One thing I should make perfectly clear right now: Kyoto Winds is only the first game of two. 

Idea Factory Intl hasn’t done an especially good job of clarifying that, and they more or less announced that they are working on the second game, but before people go rushing to buy Kyoto Winds–just keep in mind that this is not going to be the full game. 

The last thing I want is to see all the disappointed comments in the tag.

As with the original Japanese release, all routes in Kyoto Winds will end right after the Battle of Toba-Fushimi, which, quite frankly, makes for very little original content. Does that mean the game is not worth buying? Not at all! Besides, if you want to be able to play the rest of the routes later in the second game (English title pending) you’re going to need Kyoto Winds first. 

There are three totally original routes in the form of Iba Hachirou, Souma Kazue, and Sakamoto Ryouma and those alone are fantastic, but then you also have Shinpachi, Sannan (there are two n’s not one), and Yamazaki to romance as well, though the start of their routes are basically the character-specific side stories that you had to unlock in Stories of the Shinsengumi. This applies to the five main routes as well.

The routes for Hijikata, Okita, Saitou, Harada, and Heisuke aren’t dramatically different but with new side characters you have moments that weren’t in the original game. Mostly it’s small things but unless I were to play the routes side by side I couldn’t always tell you specifically what is different. I know for Sano they made a small addition to his route in what will be Kyoto Winds that made me super happy, so there’s things like that. 

Once you get towards the end of the game though, just before and after the Battle of Toba-Fushimi that’s where most of the new content is for the original routes. 

It’s hard to rate it though, because on it’s own Kyoto Winds won’t be super exciting but once the second game comes out as well I think fans will really be happy with the experience. This isn’t just another port of the original game that we’ve had in the past, this is taking the original game and improving on it and adding perspectives that weren’t there previously. 

If this means anything for how much I love these games, I really don’t need to buy the English versions but I will be buying them anyway because I would be happy to play them over again in my native language and just to support the franchise because they’re more than worth it. 

Words cannot express how glad I am that the localization is coming out so soon. I can’t wait for everyone to get to experience the joy! (ノ^ヮ^)ノ*:・゚✧

Red Velvet Reaction To Another Idol Flirting With You

Irene: Would be really jealous but would try to keep it cool just because you’re in a place full of other people. But I think that she would stick by your side the whole time you were talking to Sehun. She would also hold your hand all the time to show him that you were hers and that she didn’t like no one messing around with her girl.

Originally posted by wonuflake


Seulgi: She would be jealous but would also just watch from the distance. If she sees that it is starting to get out of control she would interrupt in classiest way possible, considering that you are in a award show. She would be polite and would try hard to hide her jealousy.

Originally posted by doyoung1


Wendy: Would feel betrayed if it was a same company idol then she would get super jealous and uncomfortable. She would want to know if you were reciprocating all the flirting. When she made sure you wasn’t she would feel a little better and but still would want to take you away from Taeyeon.

Originally posted by bakjoy

Joy: If you were in an award show, she wouldn’t even care. She’s too fabulous to deal with this. Except if Jennie starts to get touchy with you. Then the jealousy would start to hit her and she would feel like she has to go to you to keep things in her control.

Originally posted by joyfulwendy


Yeri: Would probably be uncomfortable and insecure about it. She would wait until you finished talking to Jeongyeon to talk to you. She would be really insecure and would think that you liked Jeongyeon more. Which you would have to reassure her that you didn’t, over and over.

There’s another version of this here, if you want to check it out

you obviously have a lot of people on this website who are like 15-17 or even like, 18, and i think they project very strongly onto older characters but then that? like, projection, means that they see something like. a 26 yr old character dating a 48 yr old and think “i am 16 and i would not want to date someone that much older than me, this must be Bad and Gross”.

but like, theres an entire fucking world of difference between the maturity levels of a 16 yr old and a 26 yr old and i dont think. that a kid can really understand what its like to be an adult and have relationships with other adults who are your equals. i think anything below like, 28 is considered “one of the kids” and theres this push to see them as people who are not fully mature and not Real Adults. when the truth is… they are. theres not inherently a massive power imbalance between someone in their mid to late twenties and someone approaching their fifties. there can be, but there isnt always and at that point you should be focusing on the fine details of the characters and their relationships than making sweeping statements.

anonymous asked:

You said "Mycroft put up with younger siblings who had a vast array of mental and emotional issues along with his own", what sort of mental and emotional issues do you imagine Mycroft to have ?

For one it would be an immense sense of paranoia considering he’s committing treason, felonies left and right coupled with this hair thin line of keeping one step ahead of those who oppose him and would rat him out in a heartbeat if they had the evidence to spare.

There’s also his superiority (toward those who are not family or his superiors) and inferiority (toward his family as evidence through Mummy and Eurus Holmes about his self worth) that leads to his stress eating, drinking, and sleepless nights.

Its this rotten combination that makes it difficult for Mycroft to be happy even if he exercises because his job makes it exceedingly difficult to find time for such maintenance and his siblings constant movements do not make it any easier.

He may seem omniscient and godly but Mycroft is just a man. A big brother trying his best to keep the family together and out of jail.

The way his family treats him deteriorates his self worth in vast chunks that he finds his only reprieve in surrounding himself with goldfish in order not to feel stupid and unwanted.

He craves that validation that he hardly receives from his family and finds it in his job where Mycroft has made himself irreplaceable.

Sherlock finds Mycroft’s desire for attention to be in poor taste and will bug the shit out of him for it which then leads to self destructive behaviors like over eating and drinking when he should be sleeping.

Trust issues would be another part of his list of problems as well as being an insomniac. This leads him to be forgetful and messy at times and you simply can’t have that in his line of work which leads to more self-loathing and stress related eating.

Whatever Mycroft had for “self love” died with his fencing days and it makes him more upset every time he sees himself naked in the mirror.

With the amount of shit Mycroft deals with its no wonder his hair line is starting to recede.

INSTANT SOOTHEING MY ASS

ANYWAY MORAL OF THE STORY IS IF U FEEL TINGLE THE SECOUND U PUT A MASK ON TAKE IT THE FUCK OFF AND NEVER. NEVER . USE THE ENTIRE PACK IN ONE GO BECAUSE HOLY FUCK ITS STONGWR THAN WHAT SHOULD BE CONSIDERED SAFE

A thought that I think I first tried to have a couple months ago just re-visited me: basically, I wondered, how big a splash did Glorfindel’s re-embodiment and return to ME make with the elves there (not to mention the Numenoreans, if it was in the 2nd age). Like…before him, did elves actually factually KNOW for sure, by actually meeting re-embodied elves who had died, that re-embodiment would happen? I mean, the Miriel/Finwe thing makes it seem like people were pretty confident about re-embodiment being real, but consider:

All the elves who died before the Darkening and the Flight either explicitly did not re-embody (Miriel) or were in Middle Earth, but all elves re-embody in Valinor. Did any ME elves ever re-embody at any point during the Years of the Trees, or (far more likely imo) had no one ever known a re-embodied elf before the Flight?

Did any of the elves who died at any point from Alqualonde to the tail-end of the first age before Earendil’s arrival in Valinor get re-embodied before the War of Wrath, and if they did, did any of them go to ME to fight in that war?

All re-embodied elves, most of whom would have died in Middle Earth (the exceptions are the casualties of the first kinslaying), and most of whom both lived their whole lives in and died in Middle Earth (the exceptions are the exiles) would live in Valinor. Did any of them ever pass any communication back to their family/friends in Middle Earth via Numenor?

Or: does re-embodiment generally take a long, long time, too long for such quick reunions and/or re-establishments of communication between any still-living elves in ME and re-embodied elves, and Glorfindel was one of the very first, either to be re-embodied period, or to make contact with ME after re-embodiment?

In which case, again, seriously, how big a deal was Glorfindel, especially metaphysically/philosophically speaking, from the perspective of all the peoples of ME, but especially the elves and the Numenoreans? It could have been, like, a huge thing!

Actually this makes me really want Glorfindel to turn up in this uber-dramatic DANGER! I BRING YOU URGENT TIDINGS FROM THE WEST! right before Sauron invades Eregion. I still want this whole period to be a miniseries okay.

anonymous asked:

Wait, if Bryke wanted Zuko to join the Gaang earlier, wouldn't that have put their precious Kataang in jeopardy lol, because that means Zuko and Katara would have more time together and this is for certain especially after their time in the crystal prison, were Bryke okay with Zutara happening around this time is what I'm trying to ask lol?

Bryke were definitely open to Zutara happening at one point in production. It was seriously considered and they are not telling the truth that it was always in the DNA of the show. Katara and Aang having a strong relationship, yes. Being a couple in the end? No. If the story had gone on unimpeded, Zutara most likely would have happened. Bryke were unsure of who Katara was going to end up with, even after they decided to cancel Book 4. Even Shaymalan said that Bryke hadn’t decided on Kataang, even while they were making the movie deal:

The first thing we did when I met Mike and Bryan, and I came on - they hadn’t finished season three. The first conversation was in my hotel room. “Dudes, I gotta know this. This is critical! This has to end. This has to end. If it doesn’t end, I’m not on board. But if you don’t want to end it - it’s all good.”  They were like “no, we saw it as three seasons for each element that he has to learn.”  And I said “great.”  At that time they hadn’t even decided where things were going to end, even like who Katara was going to end up with. All of that stuff hadn’t been figured out yet. We had such amazing conversations in that room, but we all agreed, shook hands and said “It’s over. We’re gonna finish the tale.”  I said that I could definitely get behind that. 

So after this conversation with Shaymalan, then Bryke decided to “finish the tale” at 3 seasons.

There was an armed robbery a couple blocks off campus early this morning, a little after two. This guy was walking home when two dudes pulled up, one got out and pulled a gun, told the victim to give them everything he had. I get an email this morning from campus safety, reporting the incident and reminding students to be aware.

“Consider taking a self defense course as a part of your personal safety plan.”

You would rather I learn a couple basic palm strikes than give me the freedom to actually defend myself. You would rather be comfortable than actually safe. That kid’s life could have ended this morning and you want to tell me that a 45 minute “here’s how to hit someone” course is a suitable method to defend yourself against two strong men with at least one gun.

Fuck you. Campus carry now. Freedom now.

anonymous asked:

hi! one of my characters is a blacksmith in a fantasy setting and he's autistic. I know that a lot of autistics can be hypersensitive to sound and that the atmosphere of a forge might be upsetting for those reasons. However could the sounds (metal striking metal in particular) as well as the impact feeling be consider stimmy for him? Also is it reasonable for him to still be sound sensitive but in a different frequency range (lower pitch noises don't bother him but high ones (like screams) do?)

Yes to all of this. I personally would be in pain from the sound and sensation of a blacksmith’s forge, but others might be hyposensitive and crave the sound/feeling, use it to stim, or just not be bothered by it. And yes, high pitched noises bother me much more than lower ones, so this is a thing. Although if you’re considering making the autistic blacksmith sensitive to high-pitched noises, remember that metal striking metal is a very high-pitched sound indeed!

Hi 🐝 I'm new around here and I really want to read the 'must-read' fanfics can you help me? Thanks

Hey, welcome! I’m absolutely shit at fic recs because I keep a really terrible record of fic that I like, so I’m gonna direct you over to @alexxphoenix42. Your best bet would probably be scrolling through Archive of our Own in the “Sherlock Holmes/John Watson” relationship tag, sorted by kudos. The fics with the most kudos are usually the ones that are most well-known in the fandom and are included in most fic rec lists.

Here’s a list of the 39 works on AO3 with more than 5k kudos.

Here’s a list of works created early on in the fandom and could be considered “classics”. And here’s part two. (Tread carefully, though, it’s been a while so characterizations will be dramatically different than what we write now.)

Just looking at the Top 39 list, the ones I have read and loved are The Progress of Sherlock Holmes, The Quiet Man, Performance in a Leading Role, Alone on the Water, A Cure for Boredom, and Electric Pink Hand Grenade.
