pomrania  asked:

Is there anything you can tell me about Mando colour symbolism that isn't already on that "armour colour" post? I'm planning out a Sabine POV story where it would be relevant.

Well, yes and no. I went over the “facts” of colors and mandalorian color theory. What I can do now is kind of dig deeper into the actual mando’a words for colors, and maybe extrapolate more on the etymology of each word as they’re relevant to colors. If anything, it’ll give you an idea of how to break down the colors and maybe play with the meanings, or even the construction of the words themselves. Hopefully that helps?

I got a little carried away (again?) so I apologize for the length and time it took to put this together … and also you can take everything I say with a grain of salt as I’m trying to make sense of the etymology of these words. I’m also skipping orange as there’s no word for in the dictionary as of yet, and including violet since it is.

So, let’s go in the order that I went in the original post. Forewarning that black is going to be the longest section as I’ve thought about it maybe way too much.

  • ne’tra — black 

Ne’ is traditionally one of the negative prefixes of mando’a. It’s meant to indicate the opposite of what it’s attached to, or the not-thing. Tra means space, void … but it also translates to starfield, or field of stars. 

So. Black. Justice. Not the void of space, or, alternatively, Without stars, a starless night. 

However way you want to interpret that is up to you, but to me? From what I understand of mandalorian history? They were once a truly nomadic people, who voyaged across the stars. They were, arguably, wayfinders. More than just warriors, or conquerors, or however most would like to put it.

I originally wasn’t going to do this, but because you mentioned (elsewhere) that you’re focusing on dusk, I want to take a moment to extrapolate on this thought. The reason I say this is because of how they view stars. 

Mandalorians are generally not considered to be religious. But the language they speak is still very deeply steeped in poetic concepts — grasping at the enormous and unthinkable with words as clever and broad as a people can attempt to embody them. Stars is my personal favorite.

Ka’ra — stars, ruling council of fallen leaders. Mandalorians still speak of those who pass as not being dead, but marching far far away. The origin of the word stars is the belief that the Mand’alore ascend to the stars, to watch over the people and to guide them.

The word for breath is kar’am. Hyperdrive is karbakar (star to star). Kar’ta is heart. Kar’taylir is awareness, knowledge, lit. to hold in the heart. Karyai is the main communal living room of a communal home, where a family convenes to spend time together — and often the last bastion against an invasion.

Jate’kara, luck, destiny, literally good stars, a course to steer by. 

All of these words stem from stars.

Black, the color, is literally a starless night. But, while the impulse is to go for something negative, I would actually pull away from that. Mandalorians, in general, also view adversity (something difficult, something terrible, something terrifying) as something to challenge and overcome as a way of life. A starless night is not to be feared but to be met

A starless night may also be indicative, poetically, of a place or a people or an event without justice. And that void, that emptiness, that lack? Must be filled. Whomsoever wears black has taken it upon themselves to fill a void and reinstate justice in whatever manner that may mean.

But also consider: a night without stars evokes a specific sort of image and feeling … which may also be completely different depending on the person in question. Someone who lives in a bright city and experiences light pollution would be used to a night without stars, versus someone living out in the wild (like Krownest) or who is dependent on the stars to travel, would be used to a night full of stars and may find it distressing or strange.

  • ve’vut — gold

This one is a little less straightforward. Vut, or vutyc, indicates special. Unique, precious. Ve’ (pronounced vay or veh) is unclear as to what it’s meant to indicate, but often when we see ve’ as a prefix, it’s usually from ven (future tense), but in this case it may be from vheh, earth, soil, dirt. 

Gold. Vengeance. A precious future, or, precious metal.

Maybe evocative of the sun rising after a long and difficult night. The gold of the sun rising is a promise of a future — or at the very least, the feeling of surviving to tomorrow. This might be too poetic though lmao, and tbh … I really like the simplicity and the directness of precious metal (lit. special dirt, lmao).

The funny thing here is that though I have gold and yellow listed together for meaning (as they are, generally, considered under the same banner of Vengeance), the word for yellow is different.

  • shi'yayc — yellow

So. I’m not really a fan of this word, to be perfectly honest with you. I’m of the opinion this is less an actual color and more an adjective meant to describe something else. But regardless, here it is.

From shi, just/only, and yayc, which may be from oyayc, meaning alive (or oya! which carries many meanings and generally overwhelmingly positive). Generally though, with the yc added to the end, it’s less a noun and more an adjective, so it might actually be meant to be a descriptor (ie. yellowing of skin or eyes etc)

Yellow. Vengeance. Only just alive, or barely dead.

Maybe comparison to, say, a recently deceased person — but that only really works if one assumed that all dead persons are pale and turn yellow when they die, and that’s a weird assumption to make in the context of mandalorians.

Also consider: yellow is dull compared to the shine of a metallic gold. Less intense in that way. My question is what becomes of a person after they’ve enacted vengeance? What becomes of a life devoid of a perpetual motivating force like that? What happens when gold loses its sheen and fades, dulls? 

Am I just taking this too far, to the next level it doesn’t need to go? maybe


EDIT:: w/ points from anon through a later ask, I’d like to also add what they said: 

you pondered about the connotations of yellow regarding ‘just/barely alive’ and its comparison to gold. I thought maybe it’s about flames/light - like a bright vivid flame is a bright gold, while the flame, when it’s only small and ->barely alive<- has more of a dull and yellowish shine. 

I hadn’t even consider that it might have been referencing intensity of light/fire? But the way you put it, that may actually make more sense than the direction I was going in. I was definitely perplexed somewhat, like I was missing something. This sounds like what I was missing.

That could also apply for the heat of a flame, too. Like, referring to the intensity of the light, or the intensity of the heat, or both, depending entirely on context, and related to the below.


  • Lust for life

So, there’s no word for orange in mando’a at this time.

Consider: Yellow is sometimes indicated to also mean lust for life, depending on who you ask and what source material you’re comparing it to.

It’s entirely possible that mandalorians don’t have a way to differentiate between yellow and orange. Some cultures do display a limitation in language, seeing what we would consider a range (yellow to orange) as all one spectrum under the same banner.

So while Yellow may mean barely alive/barely dead, yellow may also mean nothing but life.

Something to think about.

  • genet — gray

Gray/Silver. Mourning lost love.

Ge’ for almost, by proximity (literally or metaphorically). Net, we can assume, comes from the word for black, ne’tra. So, in this case, gray is literally almost black, but not quite. Reaching towards it, maybe, but not quite there.

I’ve used overcast before to describe gray, or the feeling of a loss, of grief, and it still applies here. Almost, not quite, as a starless night sky. Duller, paler, than a starfield. That kind of thing—perpetually in comparison to black.

Also consider that it may infer obscuring the target, instead of almost reaching black, it may act like a filter, a translucent overlay to take away or obscure intensity of (in this case from black, or night sky). Mandalorians, who are (or once was) so used to navigating by/the stars, suddenly having to deal with their guidance obscured? There’s loss, there, too.

  • kebiin — blue

This one’s a little … less straightforward. Ke’ is used as an imperative prefix, usually to indicate that this word/sentence is a command, but keb may also come from kebbur, meaning to try or make an attempt. Biin, or bii, may come from abiik, air (interestingly, kebii’tra indicates sky, so it’s literally blue starfield, blue space).

What is reliable? What is faithful? Following through, or making the attempt again and again—someone consistent, trustworthy. To stretch the meaning, as trustworthy as the air. 

Blue. Reliability. Faithful. As consistent, or trustworthy, as the air.

I wonder if that was ever a phrase in use. “As trustworthy as the air” might ring true on a planet where they can breathe without their helmets … but what if they so happen to land on a planet that they cannot?

In hindsight, that sounds like a very mando joke to make. B’)

“Who ever is reliable all the time?” Both a joke and a very serious question.

  • ge’tal — red

Ge shows up again. Almost. Tal, blood. Almost blood, or nearly / like blood. 

From what I understand, the Taung did bleed red, and since they were the original mandalorians, it makes sense for them to make the simplest association for the color.

Red. Honoring a parent. 

This is kind of a call back, imo, to the saying “the blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb,” as chosen family ties are stronger than that of biological ones, and consider that mandalorians are expected to shed blood for their chosen family if it ever came to it.

But also consider pointing at a rose and, quite literally, calling it like blood

  • vorpan — green

Vor, figuratively, is to thank. Literally, it’s to accept. Pan… is a little difficult to discover what it might indicate, or where it may come from, but from the two other words it’s a part of (epan, for guts, entrails, and sapan for electromagnet) we can kind of infer that it’s meant to indicate core, or insides, the interior of a thing.

Metaphorically, vorpan can be understood to be accepting a task to fulfill with one’s whole being.  For context, vorpan’oy is the word for vegetation, as in bringing life to green.

Green. Duty. To embody one’s accepted task

Not really sure why, but let’s go with that.

  • saviin — violet

This word is actually very close to Sabine’s name — they’re pronounced the same, just with a v instead of b. In some dialects or accent, one might say they are the same. I would argue they are.

So. VioletSaviin. Sa’ most likely comes from sarad, meaning flower, bloom. Viin is from viinir, for run. 

Running flower. Wild violets are considered weeds in some places, and so instead of run as in flee, run may lean more towards running wild, an overgrowth — or a plant that can live, even thrive, anywhere, in spite of adversity and outside forces attempting to eradicate them. 

Survival in adversity.

And, maybe unintentionally maybe not, given the above I would argue it’s a perfect name for Sabine under the circumstances. 


EDIT:: referring again to points brought up by anon in a later ask:

saviin sounds a lot like Sabine, which seems very very likely to me, considering the long i (or rather e - from an anglophone perspective) and that [v] and [b] are very similar sounds, so maybe Sabine is like a basic transcription or a dialect form of Saviin. Regarding the meaning of the colour/name

My etymology for it would be the following: “viin”/“bine” being a degenerated/shortened form (or even the root?) of kebiin - blue connected with “sa” - as, like, it gives “sa viin” - “like blue”, what is kind of a good description for purple/violet, implying the standard shade in mandalorian perception would be a darker bluish purple ALSO implying that the concept of purple cam up comparably late in the language, similar of the color orange getting it’s name rather late in germanic languages 

I was going color by color so I missed the connection in the effort to complete the post, which was an oversight by me sadly. 

It might also then directly connect the connotations of blue (reliability) with purple (adaptability, survival in adversity). They who are reliable can be depended on to adapt and survive adversity, or so on, kind of like orange (lust for life) from yellow, as thought about from above (the intensity of the flame).

Definitely some interesting things to think about.

What I Did On My Summer Vacation by grimm

(4/4 I 118,749 I Explicit)

There’s something weird about Beacon Hills that Stiles can’t quite put his finger on. The way everyone in town knows his name the day he arrives. The way they insist the melancholic howling that echoes through the forest every night is just a dog. The way his dad denies getting a dog, even though Stiles comes home to find one sprawled across his bed, some big black thing whose eyes gleam red in the right light. The way that massive oak tree out in the woods vibrates under his touch, pulsing with sickly life.

There’s something weird going on in this town, and Stiles is determined to get to the bottom of it.

It Came from the Trees by whatshouldntbe

(25/100 I 492,720 I Explicit)

Stiles mutters, “What I do in the woods at three in the morning is my business.”

or

Stiles moves to Beacon Hills so his dad can become the new sheriff, and finish out his freshmen year of high school (by staying under the radar) when he suddenly becomes the Beyoncé of the Supernatural community, and catches the eye of one of the most prominent Werewolf families in all of North America. It literally all starts with a stuffed animal(s).

Sense of Home by siny

(1/1 I 53,067 I Explicit)

Home can be a place, but it can also be a person.

After the events with the Nemeton, Stiles starts suffering the consequences of their sacrifice. A journey he attempts to make on his own, but only becomes worse with every step he takes. In the process he seeks comfort in an unexpected place and it draws him toward an unexpected person.

Age Defining Hale by Capn_KayReaper

“Well, Deaton’s the one that knows about this kind of stuff, he researched everything when it happened the first time,” Scott answered and looked between everyone in the room, which consisted of Scott, Stiles, Braeden and mini Derek. “But he’s MIA right now. We’ll have to wait until he gets back,”

“Until then… we’ll have to keep an eye on you,” Stiles added to Scott’s sentence. “You might change back at some point and one of us will have to explain,”

“He’ll have to stay with one of us,” the Alpha mentioned and instantly looked at him, like he was the better option.

“No, no way, my dad’ll freak out if he sees Derek walking around the house, especially if he’s young again. Hell, he’d give me the talk again if he saw ‘that’ in the kitchen making coffee in the morning,” when he said ‘that’ he gestured to Derek’s more than gorgeous, slightly younger body. Seriously, puberty was incredible for this guy. “And I don’t have a guest room, so it’s either the couch or my room and I don’t think I’ll be able to live with waking up to that face every morning! I’ll die of hormone inflammation!”

(13/13 I 64,120 I Explicit)

What if fate twisted the other way?

OR: Stiles’s life has just become an object lesson in “why we do not go out in the woods looking for dead bodies.”

OR: Lycanthropy and ADHD are going to be the suckiest mix.

Alpha Games by Arcs

(22/22 I 72,876 I Explicit)

The Alpha Pack has killed thousands of people and werewolves alike. They’ve set their sights on Derek’s Pack and anyone that knows of the supernatural in Beacon Hills.
Ten alphas versus a few teenagers isn’t much of a challenge, though. So they’ve given Derek time to get ready for the fight.
Weak prey isn’t any fun, after all.

anonymous asked:

I saw a post you made about avoiding sameface, and I figured I might as well ask you this, even though it's not quite your area. I need help with sameface... in writing. I have no idea how to describe faces, and all I can find on it is "look at real people! :)" which doesn't work because I have prosopagnosia. I also don't want my PoV character to say "this person looks Korean/etc," I want to describe what features they have that make them look that way, but I don't know how. Have you any advice?

Oh, and I specifically want to describe the facial differences between two characters who are not siblings in a situation where it would make sense for them to be siblings. One is (fantasy equivalent of) half Korean, the other is (again fantasy) Chinese. (I write fanfic, canon is weird.)

I’m not a writer at all so asking me wouldn’t be the best idea, I’m hoping that there will be genius writers out there who see this ask and would be willing to help out :D

I don’t know if it is appropriate for me to connect art with writing but… usually artists exaggerate the facial features of a character depending on the personality of the character. Like for example if you take the concept art of Big Hero 6 characters, Tadashi and Fred:

(artwork is by character designer Jin Kim I think! Correct me if I am wrong)

Tadashi has very dark features that complements his asian ethnicity. Prominent jaw/chin for a more masculine, mature appearance. Big dark pupils making him look very friendly and warm. Broad shoulders to give the ‘protective older brother’ vibe. 

Fred has a long scrawny face with a very large nose, meaning that his face is ‘unbalanced’ which can be interpreted as a goofy character. Lean body could mean he is very chilled out/doesn’t take things seriously etc.

My point is that you can describe your characters with unique ‘exaggerated’ features to build their personalities.

things you said I wasn’t meant to hear

“Haz, I can’t find my keys.” Zayn checks his pockets, his bag, under a few sofa cushions.

Harry pops in from around the corner. He jingles the keys in his hands with a big grin on his face. “I found them.”

“Thanks, babes.” He takes the keys and presses a kiss to his cheek. “You’re so good at finding my shit, dunno why I bother looking.”

Harry shrugs. “A simple Accio always gets the job done.”

Zayn quirks an eyebrow at him. “I don’t… understand what that means.”

“Family joke,” Harry says with a wave of his hand.

He says that a lot, he’s got quite the weird family. Makes sense, Harry’s quite the weird lad. He keeps a toaster in their bedroom and gets a little bewildered by escalators and says things like Accio. And any time he catches Zayn lifting an eyebrow at him, he chuckles and calls it a family thing.

It’s one of the reasons Zayn’s a little nervous to meet them. Not that he’d admit it.

What I like about IDW's Starscream is that he's characterised as an actualisation of the saturday morning show, 'bad is good, good is bad' character. He actively rejects morality and redemption and scorns those who abide or pursue them, especially in their often inevitable hypocrisy. What he says implies he genuinely doesn't believe in any notion of "good", because what he's seen is that either it leads to death, or corruption. 'The Seven Deadly Virtues' from Camelot is his ideology.

Thanks for your patience, anon! I am now ready to talk way too much about Starscream.

First things first: I had to look up “The Seven Deadly Virtues” and you should all listen to it if you haven’t because 1) it’s great (thanks for bringing it to my attention, anon!) and 2) it is such a Starscream song (mostly–gonna get to that in a sec).

So I actually had to think about this ask for a bit because I wasn’t sure I quite agreed. Starscream definitely tries to give the impression that he thinks like that (when he’s around people who know he’s terrible, anyway), but I don’t think he genuinely doesn’t believe in any notion of goodness.

He makes a pretty good show of embracing being a monster, and I agree he does believe that trying to be most people’s definition of “good” is naive at best (and suicidally foolish at worst), but he does value some things traditionally viewed as virtues, and he does have a line. I think that line is best demonstrated when he shoots Metalhawk:

For everything else he’s done, he draws the line at pointless cruelty, and it doesn’t make him not a monster, but it does make him a slightly more complicated one. I almost think he has to have a line, because even though he does his best to ignore it, he does have a conscience, and it’s easier to live with yourself if you can say “at least I don’t do that.”

And now for the point where I don’t think the song quite fits: he does seem to actually value courage. He joined the Decepticons when he showed up to fight in death matches in the gladiator pits, and he didn’t react well to Turmoil calling him a coward:

He even–in a really weird way–seems to value loyalty. That seems a little ridiculous on the face of it, seeing as he’s…well, Starscream. But he really doesn’t like it when people call him a traitor:

(I think about this panel a lot)

I also think his weird sense of loyalty might be why he feels guilty about killing Metalhawk. He thinks it’s not betrayal if he was never on your side, but he admits he thought of Metalhawk as a friend, so he very well might view killing Metalhawk as a betrayal.

So, um, yeah, basically, I don’t totally disagree with you, because in a lot of ways Starscream does have a really topsy-turvy definition of morality. But there are some areas where his views overlap with traditional morality, and I like him because of that tension between what morality he does have and him being just generally a self-serving monster.

I might be asking the wrong person but does krejjh count as trans if they come from a planet where the gender binary doesn't really exist?

Hi! Yeah, this doesn’t feel like my call.

Certainly Krejjh would be deeply, deeply uncomfortable describing themself as male or female, and I think they are very grateful that nonbinary humans have popularized concepts like a gender neutral “they” because it provides a framework on how to exist in a deeply gendered society without having to “pick a side.”

At the same time, of course, categories like “trans” and “nonbinary” were created by humans to describe human experiences, as a reaction to–and an extension of–human culture. And for Krejjh, raised in a place where absence of a gender binary is the default, I don’t know if it would be appropriate to use those terms. (Like, at least before living with humans all the time, gender didn’t factor into Krejjh’s identity at all, in any way.)

(The decision to seek a VA who identifies specifically as nonbinary came about because I ran this by as many nb folks as I possibly could beforehand–maybe two dozen. And of course there wasn’t total consensus because identity groups aren’t monoliths, but the overall majority opinion was, “Even though purple space aliens aren’t a direct one-to-one match with nonbinary humans, casting a nonbinary person to read lines about the weirdness of the gender binary system allows nb folks to be in on the joke. And also honestly there’s so little nonbinary representation that well, it’s better than nothing.”)

Bottom line: if you are trans and something about Krejjh resonates for you, please feel free to consider Krejjh as part of your community. I’m sure they’d be happy to be invited to the party; you will find them at the center of the dance floor, doing shots of hot sauce and entertaining the crowd with their best “cis human” impression. (”HEY FELLAS, ARE YOU READY FOR MY VERY SPECIFIC FEELINGS ABOUT THE COLORS BLUE AND PINK?”)

At the same time, if it feels like appropriation for an extra terrestrial to use terms created by a very maginalized group of humans–that makes sense too. And for what it’s worth, I think Krejjh would be so horrified to learn of the historical discrimination and violence faced by trans and non gender-conforming people that Krejjh would be totally okay with being told not to use those words for themself. (”Cripes, wow. Wow. Okay, if anybody asks I’ll just say that my gender is ‘pilot’?”)

tl;dr I don’t know!

Can I get scenarios with Bakugou, Midoriya, and Todoroki where s/o is American and doesn't know Japanese very well? They comes off kinda mean at first because of it cause they dont want to embarrass themself. But they're actually really sweet and supportive?

{I’m slow~~So slowwww~~ I’m very sorry!! Here is your request! 

** Italics is English, and the speaker is a foreigner who hasn’t studied Japanese for long, so the sentences are garbled. Ok here we go~~}

Bakugou

Who do they think they are, huh? Fucking judging everyone silently while they sit atop their high horse? It’s pissing me off, and now I have to be paired up with the goody-goody, too?! Fucking amazing.

I walk over to them and snarl, they don’t even flinch. I roll my eyes.

“Let’s just get this over with.” I say, walking past them, but thinking twice and turning back to look at them in the face. “Don’t get in my way, got it?” I threaten, raising a fist. They look at me, scrunching their eyes a bit.

“Yes.” They say, their voice coming out small, but strong. I growl and turn around, seriously pissed. Stomping into the practice ring, I look at our opponents, Iida and Ochako. Where do they get the nerve to be confident, eh?! Everyone around me are idiots. I crack my knuckles and look over to my partner as they get into fighting stance and I have to say, that the way they hold themselves for battle is pretty hot. I squint my eyes, and suddenly get the breath knocked out of me.

About five feet from the original starting position, I am laying on the ground after being drop kicked by a charging Iida at full power. Damn, that hurt. I hold my stomach, trying to force my breakfast back down, as my senses come back. I raise my head back up, and notice my partner running towards me.

“Oh, mah gosh! You alwight?!” They say, their words slurring into some weird ass language, and their face is twisted with concern. What the hell? They can make that kind of face, too? I lift myself back up. I guess I thought about them all wrong. I snarl.

“Yeah, mind your own.” I try to sound cool, but damn my stomach is going to hurt for a while. My partner comes over and looks me over, but I push them out of the way as another flying kick zooms their way. “Watch it, damn it!” I yell at them, and they react fast, grabbing Iida by his leg and swinging him down onto the ground, creating a dent. I’m left speechless. I really misjudged them.

Just had a weird spur of the moment headcanon. But bear with me for a sec... AU, where RFA is in highschool with MC, and MC is with Jumin, and one day MC is sick and doesn't show up, so Jumin sneaks into MC's room to bring her stuff and fluff ensues.

Haha, that sounds super cute! Depending on how close they were (I’m assuming they were super tight in the au you were suggesting) I don’t think it’s unlikely. (I accidentally read this wrong the first time and wrote them as good friends that fall in love??? I’m sorry I can’t read to save my life sometimes??? *facepalm* I hope you enjoy this anyway) Maybe it would go something like this? (Also I’m making them all the same age because I’m a lazy):


MC was feeling abysmal as she closed the door to her bedroom, cradling a tissue box in her arms as she returned to bed. Looking to her phone, she noticed class was over in the time she had inadvertently passed out on the couch downstairs. She opened the messenger to ask Jumin for the homework– as they shared most of their classes being honor students–when her window slid open of its own accord to reveal a familiar head of dark hair. Her hand flew up to cover her mouth as she laughed at his unceremonious entrance, unrepentant as each limb and a bag followed.

“Oh my God, Jumin, you did not.” She managed in between giggles.

His deadpan expression softened into a sheepish yet devilish smirk. “You have your ways of avoiding your mother, I have mine. Please excuse the intrusion.”

She waved him off, unperturbed. They’d been climbing in each others houses for years now, they were hardly strangers. “You could have just emailed everything to me, you didn’t have to come all this way. I don’t want to get you sick too.” MC insisted with a sniffle. More than that, she didn’t want him to get in trouble with his father over something so trivial.

“Where’s the fun in that? I’ll be fine.” He grinned, removing a neat folder from his bag with everything she needed to catch up, she was sure. “For you.”

“Thank you,” She placed the small stack of papers on her nightstand. “How long did you have to fight Zen to be the one to bring it to me?” MC asked dryly.

She was delighted to hear Jumin laugh, holding up his hands from their original position crossed over his chest. She loved it when it was just the two of them. He always seemed so comfortable, so liberated compared to his usual withdrawn reticence. “You got me, I had to beat him at rock paper scissors before he relented. Which makes no sense considering we live a block away from each other. In terms of efficiency, I was the most viable option.”

MC smiled. Jihyun was right, he was ever the scientist. But she thought the practicality was adorable, and it made him a lot more honest than most. It was refreshing that she never had to wonder what he was thinking since he was always open about it.

“Wait just a second, you must be thirsty after running here and climbing that tree. Let me get some water,” She exited before he could protest and returned with two water bottles, one to keep her hydrated and the other to make sure he was drinking properly too. Though she doubted he had problems with his health considering how he regimented just about everything.

“Thanks.” His voice was quiet, low. The sound of it never failed to soothe her, even now as her head throbbed slightly from oversleeping.

There was a comfortable silence for a while, their gazes wandering, most often to each other. A light blush often colored their cheeks whenever either was caught staring, accidentally or not, and Jumin’s hand came up to rub the nape of his neck. 

MC was curious at the sight of the gesture. He only did that when he was nervous. “Is something wrong, Jumin?“ Was his stepmother acting up again? “You know you can always stay here if you’re not comfortable at home.” She said softly, her hand reaching out to cover his in the hopes of comforting him. She had wanted to talk some sense into his parents for a long time, but she knew they would only take out whatever she said on him the moment she was gone. She hated how powerless she was to stop it. Anything she could do to help, he had but to ask.

He shook his head. “No it’s not that, but thank you, MC.” His words were suffused with a warm gratitude that was somewhat shy. “It’s…actually…” His gaze moved to the floor, lips pursed until he managed to force the words out. “Would you have preferred it if Zen was the one to come instead of me?” She could see the faintest of blushes coloring the tips of his ears.

“Much as I would appreciate whoever came to deliver the things I need, I think I’d have to say no.” She hedged. His head shot up immediately to stare at her in surprise as her hands fiddled with the sheets, pulling at a stray thread on one of the corners as she her face flamed.

A slow smile she didn’t see overtook his face, more radiant than any he’d worn all his life. “Truly?” He asked. 

She nodded, mortified and unable to look at him and down-spiraling as usual. God he was going to think she was one of those crazy kids at school desperate to get his attention for all the wrong reasons, nice going you idiot. As if he doesn’t have enough girls hitting on him on a daily basis! Way to ruin everything, all he wanted was a real friend and you had to take it too far, stop being selfish and–

Her thoughts were halted in their tracks when she felt the velvet brush of lips and the lightest pressure on her forehead, her eyes widening and her cheeks darkening even further. All she could do was blink and stare at his crisp white collar, mouth slightly agape as he took a step back. He was blushing a bit too, despite his indulgent smile.

“Before you self-destruct,” He began, knowing all too well how she overthought things sometimes. Her brows would knit and her face would scrunch up in quiet horror in the most endearing way, though he always halted her before she could go too far with it and come to the wrong conclusion. “I like you too,” He revealed, his voice no louder than a murmur.

“O-oh.” Was all she could manage to say. Holy crap holy crap holy crap this was not a drill, Jumin liked her plain ass back. At this rate, she was going to need a hospital for an entirely different reason. She had liked him for a long time, but never wanted to make him uncomfortable with the expectation of something more considering the kinds of experiences he’d had with women all his life.

“But the most important thing right now is your health,” He continued, wrapping a spare blanket from the closet around her shoulders. “We can address this more as soon as you’ve rested. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to call on me if you need anything.” His voice was as stern as it was sincere, largely because MC was stubborn to a troublesome degree about asking for help. He didn’t want her to hesitate, even if all she wanted was to talk. “Feel better, MC.” Shooting her another one of his delightful small smiles, he climbed back out and down the tree, heading home to tell his father about another impromptu student council meeting no doubt.

Her hands came up to cover her face, trying to hold in the shrill scream climbing up her throat. He had to be the cutest combination of awkward and charming she’d ever seen. Hoping it wasn’t a fever dream and giddy for tomorrow, she got to work on the day’s assignments so that she could go to bed early.

She pulled the blanket he had retrieved for her closer in the hopes that she would warm more quickly, which made her notice it was her favorite one: the gray one. The one she had draped over his shoulders when he’d appeared one night, eyes wide and terrified; desperate to be as far away from what she assumed to be his home. It had been raining heavily and she hadn’t known him all that well yet, but he had seemed trustworthy enough at school. So she pulled him inside without a second thought despite the lack of explanation. She then led him to the living room and asked him to wait in the quietest voice she could manage, only moving when she saw him nod imperceptibly. She didn’t ask him any questions, just prepared Earl Grey tea–thank God Jihyun had gushed about him to her– and chose the blanket because it had matched his striking eyes. The ones that had seemed so dull and clouded when she first met him, like the mist that guards a heavily fortified fortress. After pouring the tea and setting up the couch for him to stay the night, she remembered asking him if he wanted a book or a movie or something to help him fall asleep, to which he replied that she pick her favorite movie. The next two hours was spent watching Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. She’d hoped the music and the intricate artwork would help him grow drowsy, but it was clear he was wide awake throughout even though he was still as a statue. She would have been worried if it hadn’t been for the sound of his even breathing filling the silence. He’d seemed remarkably poised and implacable at school, like nothing could ever faze or deter him. So what on Earth had the power to make him withdraw into himself to this degree? 

When the movie was over she turned off the lights and found the newest book she’d intended to read, pulling up a chair deliberately in between him and the front door. Soon after that, his eyes closed and the next time she looked up he was sound asleep. Her jaw set at the sight, remembering the strange but strong scent of perfume that clung to his chest when she’d wrapped the blanket around him. If anybody came looking for him–no matter who it was– she was going straight to the police. That morning, they left the house and she accompanied him to retrieve his things before they left for school as if nothing had ever happened.

To this day, she thanked her rarely lucky stars that her own family had been gone for the weekend and she had been able to let him stay somewhere safe for the night.

After the incident she noticed little changes in his demeanor each day; a pencil appearing on her desk before she could ask for one, a question she’d written while taking notes answered in an elegant script on her page when she returned to class from the restroom, notes brought to her house when she was ill just like today. His attempts at conversation were still tentative, but much more apparent than before, and she always responded with her full attention. It didn’t take long for their conversations to run deeper than they ever would have imagined, engrossed to the point where entire hours would pass without their knowledge. Soon they were inseparable; she couldn’t remember being so close to somebody all her life.

She buried her face in the blanket, the memory from two years ago bittersweet. Her heart would always break at the thought of what he might have lost that night, but she always hoped he would remember it for the same reasons that she did. The start of a wonderful friendship and the slow emergence of a lifelong love.


I’m sorry I kind of got carried away with this AU idea, but I hope you like it anyway??? Thank you for enabling my endless thirst somebody please protect this boy he is all I think about. 

Quincy Li, the Transformer

Name: Quincy “Qinlin” (aka verdant forest) Li I named him Quincy bc of the visual of Q and bc of the ‘in’ part, not bc Qin sounds anything like Quin lmao

Occupation: mercenary employed by RED (sort of, more in his backstory)

Age: 26 (in 1970 so he’s like… the same age as scout…?)

Height: 5′8″ (standing)

Build: Average. His upper body and core strength is far better than his lower body strength. He is currently still undergoing physical therapy, so he’s working on it. His arms probably get buffer as time goes on simply because of the nature of his disability (paralysis below the knee if thats even a thing lmao either way it has to do with his legs and basically the whole point of his class).

Description: He has fairly standard Chinese features, and his skin is on the tanner side (bc seriously, don’t believe those commercials, far more Asians have darker skin than those vampires you see on TV–his skin tone is actually fairly close to my own). His hair is short, and he generally wears a beanie and fingerless gloves. He usually is found wearing a modified dress shirt with a maroon vest emblazoned with his class logo. He wears a small, stud earring on his left ear. 

Likes: Machines, programming, computers, technology, exploring, cars, motorcycles, listening to folktales

Dislikes: exercise, his physical therapy training, his crutches (even though he understands their necessity), his leg braces, his modified shoes, gender dysphoria

Alignment: True Neutral (gives zero fucks tbh)

Zodiac: Aquarius

DOB: February 2, 1944

Gender: Male

Orientation: I haven’t really thought about it yet tbh although I don’t think it will ever come into play should I ever end up rping as him at any point? but I have a feeling he’d end up bi/pan like most of my muses lmao

Voice: The sound of a 12 year old boy like the kind you meet in tf2 servers tbh His voice sounds gender neutral. Even if you listened very carefully, it is hard to discern whether his voice is that of a mature woman or a boy in his teens.

Languages: English, Mandarin Chinese

Education: He’s fresh outta college dude. Went to a 4 year for a bachelor’s in mechanical engineering, then took a few years of grad school until he was taken to Mann Co, where he finished his education under Engie.

Nationality: Chinese American (he has an American passport bc he was born in the US, specifically, San Francisco)

Disorders: Mild PTSD

Habits: Tinkering with things that don’t belong to him. Prone to experimentation with machines, specifically cars and motorcycles. He loves motorcycles bc he can use them to great effect if he mods them a bit to accommodate for his legs. Plus, gotta go fast my dude, and motorcycles are the easiest way for him, a self-proclaimed adrenaline junkie, to get his fill of adrenaline (plus he’s a speed demon i mean what do you expect, being stuck to a wheelchair all day?). Likes trying to “sneak” around as best he can: it’s a habit he developed since childhood, and is especially a challenge bc of his disability.

Positive traits: Intelligent, confident (in some ways, at least), gives good advice despite not following it on his own

Neutral traits: Passive, impartial, talkative

Negative traits: Impulsive, immature/petty, uncaring, selfish, prideful

And, of course, an obligatory explanation of what the fuck this lil kid is doing with these hardened mercenaries:

The whole food area though is my fav. I mean, when it comes to food, humans go overboard. We spice foods with spices from all over the world, in a thousand different ways rather than just take some food and pass it through the fire or just eat it raw. We even grow certain animals a specific way on a specific diet for their lifetime so they taste a certain way. It’s so extra lmao

It’s kind of difficult to understand creativity and originality when my first function is Ni. Bc Ni is just like… everything new and original is just a version of something we came up with long ago. I’m kind of torn between the thought that there are still True original ideas that exist or of what we have with our human capabilities has already been explored.

I really like this concept of simulacrum. I don’t exactly remember who came up with it, but the thought is easy to understand. Say an original exists. Then someone takes that original thought and makes a spin of it. Then you’ll have the original… and its (sorta) copy. But even though the copy is a copy, by the way humans interact with this copy, it’ll become real. Basically everything we have now is a copy of before, however through our way of seeing it, it becomes real. And it makes me wonder like… Is it possible for all original thoughts to disappear? What will we do then?

I watched a Vsauce video a while ago and it talked about the musical scale? How there’s a finite amount of songs that fall into what humankind finds enjoyable. What’ll be like if at one point in time, we run out of everything? Even now there’s copies of songs, especially using the same keys.

Its just weird to view the world with the thought that everything is a copy of each other. That the western ideals to stand out from the crowd will never happen. It’d be cool if one day, we can see the sources of all originality come from.

hi there leela :) maybe this is something you have/will talk about if you do a fullfledged review of the past video but do you think the horse prince is actually, in some ways the most they've pushed the envelope re: getting us comfy w/ them being together? 'cause , like, you can go lol horses all you want, it doesn't change the fact that you're recording romantic/erotic(???) RP with your bro. (dan's fake choking was like...wow y'all are really going there??) Just curious of your thoughts.

hi :) i think it’s perhaps the most comfortable they’ve been in breaking some of the unspoken PG boundaries that exist on dapg. they’re quickly normalizing talking about sexual themes and talking about them together (rather than dan just making a weird sexual remark every now and then) and i think that’s important (though i would argue that other videos have done this too, to lesser extents). i also think it’s been somewhat aimed at getting more comfortable voicing sexual attraction to a male character and making sure the audience knows they experience same gender attraction (though obvi thats a bigger step for phil than dan). and i did write in my response to the first horse vid that it seems notable that they’re rly into the idea of this game that involves them roleplaying w each other so sexually when just a few months ago ppl were like losing their shit over the idea of them doing that two sentence scene in undertale where the guards realize they’re attracted to each other? lmao. 

but despite their excitement around it, i don’t think it’s a specific or targeted attempt to get people comfortable with their togetherness, especially when you compare it to other ostensible “““boundaries””” they’ve been breaking lately: all of their little comments about sharing all of their possessions or their domestic stories that they tell on younow that always involve each other or all the allusions to planning for the future together both professionally and personally or all the ways they’ve been promoting and talking about each other on social media and all the soft touching they’ve become suddenly comfortable with in the last three months and their own organically generated sexual teasing and innuendos that are directed at each other (rather than ones they’re reading from a script) and their openly going on several dates all throughout january and february and a few even in the last couple weeks (the cursed child, all the movie nights, the sushi nights out, the afternoon tea, etc etc) and the way they’ve shared stories about those dates with us quite happily and dan openly going to be with phil and his family for phil’s birthday and the way they kept posting photos about their walk.  for me their togetherness has always evinced itself through these small details and larger stories that demonstrate that they can’t imagine or even begin to talk about their individual lives without talking about each other, much more than sexual remarks ever have–but that’s a whole other conversation about why people define relationships and “togetherness” in such a particular way, and why ppl need confirmation that they touch each others’ dicks in order to be “convinced” that they’re together. like they can literally go out of their way to talk about all of the ways they depend on each other and need each other and do every single part of life together but bc we don’t have those comments about sexual/physical attraction people don’t acknowledge their togetherness? i’ve never understood that. but insofar as that standard does exist, you’re right in suggesting that the sexual comments do take on a particular importance bc for some people they will be a decisive factor in how they perceive dnp’s relationship. but all of that being said, i don’t think they’re really planning or coordinating a strategy to get us to see them and their relationship status a particular way. rather i think what we’re seeing is the cessation of their caring about the way they are perceived. they are just loosening up on many fronts in order to let themselves act more naturally on camera (by which i mean let themselves act more like they do off-camera) and so it’s less about making targeted and premeditated decisions about how to make us see their togetherness and more about acting like their true selves. in the process, we are just seeing more examples and manifestations of what has always been there

Good morning! I have a question for you but there's a build up so this will prob be a multi ask. Sorry. Hope you're having a good day so far! Okay so p1. I was mad when this all started and thoroughly agreed with what your sentiment appears to be. Then I got to thinking how truly off the wall/out of character behavior/weird everything is. CB seems forward/pretty blunt. She doesn't insert herself into drama. Remember the tweet she posted pretty much calling out fans for twisting her words? She--

p2–knows when there is an uproar. That pretty much proves she’s aware at least and she set the record straight pretty quickly. My point is she makes an effort to stay out of it and has until this bday pic. Throughout hiccups of involvement she’s been pretty clear in her actions/intentions. This bday pic message in and of itself is extremely out of character for her. The passive aggressive reasoning behind her posting it makes it that much more out of character for her. Not to mention the weird body language in the pic that’s hard to ignore. Given all that I think she did this solely for Sam. He pays more attention to her online it seems. Even if they’re not romantically involved he prob vents to her about the stress of it all and I think she took this one for the SC Team. If she did it to out S/MM I can’t see her doing so in such a manner that leaves so much spec. 

With how blunt she normally is I see her captioning the pic “celebrating w/ the happy couple” or something that doesn’t leave more questions than answers. I feel like before this might’ve been something to make you squee w/ how much they love each other/how much they’d do for each other. Remember infamous “I’d do anything for you.”? This seems on par w/ that if you look at it w/o hurt emotions which I know is hard. I’m not trying to downplay how you feel at all. I respect your opinions completely. I’m just wondering if you look back after emotions die down some (hoping they eventually do) you think you’d see things differently or is this it? 


Thanks for this message anon. I hope you don’t mind that I edited out some parts that I’m not comfortable publishing. I agree that Cait inserting herself into the drama is completely out of character. Honestly it was the last thing I expected from her. Even neutral fans were disappointed to see her tweeting that picture because she normally stays away from all the shit storms that constantly surround Sam.

Obviously my opinion on the matter isn’t set in stone and I’m still thoroughly confused about everything but I don’t think there was any hidden meaning behind her posting the picture and I also don’t think that it’s another piece to the infamous conspiracy theory puzzle. I think the hate got so out of hand on MM’s IG that someone thought this would be the only way trolls would leave her alone and it’s as simple as that. The story they want out there is that Sam is with MM and that they’re a happy couple and Cait is sooo supportive of them and has nothing more than platonic feelings for him. I’m really tired of twisting myself into knots trying to make sense of things so for now that’s the ridiculous theory that I’ll force myself to believe, even though I don’t want to.

But doesn't it make you think that Dan is going out of his way to promote this new ship in a way that he never did with Phil? Even when he likes phanart it's never "shippy art", but with Anthony it is. And I know there's nothing between them, but it makes me wonder why he doesn't do the same w/ Phil. Is it bc Phil is the one who's uncomfortable or maybe Dan isn't as attracted to Phil as we thought? Bc even though Anthony is straight, Dan is clearly attracted to him and idk it makes me feel weird

You are projecting a whole lot here, anon. 

Dan is not ‘promoting a new ship.’ Dan is promoting a video that he was in. The video was about himself and Anthony. The promotion involves himself and Anthony. Two people working together is not inherently a ship. Is fandom having fun with Dan and Anthony being two pretty people who made a video together? Absolutely. Does that mean you need to feel worried or threatened on Phil’s behalf? No. There is nothing Dan is doing right now that wouldn’t be completely normal if it was Phil, from the perspective of youtubers doing their job.

Dan does likes art with himself and Phil all the time. They made entire tumblr tag videos in which they showed art. They included art in their books. All of that was about the two of them. Even if Dan were liking explicitly shipping fanart from the collab, it would be because everyone in this situation is an adult with a sense of humor. But I’ve yet to see Dan like anything involving himself and Anthony that isn’t a direct recreation of a moment in the collab, which is something that happens for him and Phil all the time. Even moreso; Dan regularly likes fanart of himself and Phil during moments that weren’t even on camera - stuff from private trips, based on instagrams of things they did together, etc. 

I’m not going to answer any more asks from people concerned about Dan and Anthony because frankly it’s just frustrating that people have such a narrow view of the scope here. Two guys (one of them straight) making a video together vs two guys who have shared their lives for eight years? Not that this even warrants trying to compare them, but if you did: no comparison. 

I hope this helps? But if it doesn’t, all I can say is: take a deep breath, chill out. Let people have fun with this.

Okay so I just saw Homecoming again  (third times the charm) and I am fairly certain that the Parkers moved apartments within those couple months between Civil War and Homecoming. 

Like my other homecoming post, this might be a shot in the dark. But I do have my reasons for thinking this. 

So, of course, the fact that Peter’s bedroom was different from Civil War to Homecoming, could have just been because the set was changed. (But we all know that Marvel is really careful with the details so I don’t think this is the reason) 

Watching the movie this time around I made sure to look around the Parkers apartment and it was definitely changed as well. 

  1. When Peter walked into his apartment in HC the hallway was small and their front door was painted black, in CW the hallway was wide and the door was painted white.  
  2. Their kitchen in CW was facing the door, their kitchen in HC was on the same side as the front door. 
  3. Their last apartment had lots of windows and was pretty spacious, their new apartment has fewer windows and is kind of cramped. 

Okay, so yes, new apartment, but again that could just be because the two movies had different directors and so different sets for the Parker residence. But I think it makes a lot of sense that Peter and May moved.  

Ben has been dead for a while now. And if you look at The Parker’s apartment in CW it was nice, pretty big and with good looking furniture. Everything in its place and roomy. 

Apartments in New York are crazy expensive and I don’t know what May does for a living in MCU (hopefully she isn’t a cook) but she probably couldn’t afford that apartment on only one income. 

And looking at the way their new apartment is a bit cluttered, furniture pushed together, filing cabinets in the living room, knick-knacks sitting about, it really does seem like they downsized. 

So that makes me wonder, (because it seemed weird to me how empty and bear Peter’s bedroom in CW was in comparison to his very much filled and messy bedroom in HC) was the reason Peter’s bedroom in CW was so empty because they were in the middle of moving? 

Because that makes a lot of sense to me.

Could you pretty please write a fic about Eren thinking something is happening between Mikasa and Armin. He sees then sneaking off together, Armin going in and out of her room, Armin holding Mikasas hand. He sees it all, it bothers him and he doesn't understand why, shouldn't he be happy for them. Instead he wants to yell at them, maybe punch Armin and cry. All that's really happening is Armin is asking Mikasa for advice on how to woo Annie and Armin listening to Mikasa talk about Eren.

A/N: Thank you for the request!! I always love me some Armin/Annie :3 Also, thank you to all who are sending me requests! Some are turning out to be longer than others, so please know I am definitely working on them :)

This is ridiculous. Wrong, and utterly ridiculous. He’s never minded business that wasn’t his own and has longed since learned to respect the privacy of others. But this - whatever it is between them - has left him confused, distracted, and preoccupied with thoughts and questions.
