is that how his last name is spelled

adrijunebug  asked:

I know this may sound stupid so forgive me but do you know how to pronounce Bum's name? is it straight up the same as how you would say it in English? or is there a certain Korean sound to it?

His name is written “윤범” and pronounced pretty much how you spell it. ‘Yoon Buhm’. (And YES, Bum is his FIRST name and Yoon is his LAST name. I think the misconception that his name is “Yoonbum” together or even “Yoon” is bc in the first chapter, a panel writes his name as “Yoonbum”. Probably to make it fit. And in Asia, last names are put first. So in English we would say Bum Yoon.) and with pretty much all non roman alphabet words, they can be pronounced differently when alone. (”범” when alone is ‘beom’ but is pronounce ‘buhm’ in the name)  I know there’s a lot of hard to pronounce Korean names, but Bum’s name is not one of them. 

Sangwoo’s full name is “오상우” - ‘Oh Sangwoo’. (’oo’ like in moon) again, pronounced exactly how you spell it. Easy enough. (unlike tricky names like Choi…. it’s spelled Choi but pronounced Choe wtf you doin Korea)

Mystic Messenger: Korean Phrases/Translations Clarification

After browsing the “Mystic Messenger” tag on Tumblr, I’ve just wanted to clear some possible confusion or misunderstandings about certain phrases the characters use that arose from the translation.

1. Did you eat?
When we use this phrase in Korean (informally: 밥 먹었어?) we sometimes do mean the literal translation of “Did you eat?” However, most of the time we don’t literally mean to ask if you ate or not nor are we usually interested in what you actually ate unless we specify. This is more of a phrase similar to the English “How are you?” The phrase “Did you eat?” is just a way to check up on someone’s wellbeing or how someone is doing.

2. Zen’s real name (Hyun Ryu/류현)
I wasn’t sure if I had to clarify this but I saw some fan-made content spelling his name as “Hyunryu” or “Hyun-ryu.” Zen’s first name is just Hyun (현) while his last name is Ryu (류), so in the Western style of first name-last name, his full name would be Hyun Ryu, while in the Korean style with the family name first, it would be Ryu Hyun (류현). I understand the confusion about this since his name is only one character while most Korean names are two characters. (Actually this isn’t rare or anything as I have plenty of friends with one character names)

3. Zen’s “babe”
Haha this translation was comical and slightly awkward for me. In the game, every time Zen refers to you as babe, honey, sweetie, etc, in Korean he is actually referring to you as “jagi” or 자기. This is actually a very fond and endearing way of referring to someone or of saying “you” (basically, the same thing as the Japanese “anata”) For example, my parents call each other jagi. This expression is usually so endearing that not all non-married couples refer to each other this way. Personally, I’ve never called someone or been called jagi before but I know some friends who call their significant others jagi even though they’re not married so in the end it’s just preference and how lovey-dovey you are. In my opinion the most accurate English translation for this word or phrase is “dear” or “honey” although there is no 100% proper English translation of this word/phrase as the English language does not have different ways of referring to people based on your relationship with them. In any case, “babe” is fine too but I just wanted to clarify that what he actually says has a more fonder and deeper undertone. However, even in the early phone calls in the Common Route, Zen still refers to you as “jagi” sometimes even though you’re not in any romantic relationship yet so my initial impression of him was “Wow this guy is a total flirt.” ^^;;

4. “Lovely Zen”
I started playing the game in English first because that was the default setting for my game and I didn’t know you could change the language to Korean until later on, so when the option came up to call Zen “Lovely Zen” or “Zenny Zen” I was kind of flustered because it kind of sounded so awkward. You wouldn’t actually call someone “Lovely ______” in real life, right? But after I changed my game language to Korean, it all made sense. Every time a nickname for Zen comes up, you are actually calling him oppa or Zen-oppa (오빠/젠오빠). I’m sure if you’re even a little bit interested in Korean culture, you would already know that this is either a way for a female to call a male that’s older than her, or for a younger female to call her older boyfriend. In the latter, romantic sense, this term is also pretty endearing but definitely not as deep as “jagi.” For example, my ex-boyfriend was one year older than me so technically I should have called him oppa or (his name)-oppa. However, since we both live in America, it’s not that enforced and I didn’t really like calling him oppa casually since I’m used to calling my older male cousins oppa so it was just weird for me. Still, sometimes if I wanted to cheer him up or something and I called him oppa, then I remember he would get really happy and kind of embarassed, just like how in one of the chats, Zen said he felt his heart skip a beat one of the first times you called him “Lovely Zen.”

This last thing is just my opinion so I hope people don’t take too much offense or see me as narrow-minded.

5. In fan-made content: “nii-san” or “baka” (형, 바보)
I love Mystic Messenger so any fanart or imagines I see, I love looking at and reading them but when I see English comics or short stories of the Choi twins and Seven says something like “Listen to nii-san” to Saeran or of one of the RFA members calling someone else “baka”, it’s just a little strange for me. Remember, all the characters in this game are Korean so instead of “nii-san,” they would say “hyung (형)” and instead of “baka” they would say “babo (바보).” If the content was originally in Japanese, then I would understand using nii-san or baka but if the content is originally in English I think it would be nice if they portrayed the characters as sticking to their roots and using the proper Korean terms. Mystic Messenger is not an anime and is not related to Japan at all >.<

If you read everything, as always 감사합니다~^^

Random thoughts/fave moments from STAR WARS REBELS

These are all random notes I made the first time I watched season 2 and 3A

  • Ezra shooting Rex and Kanan by accident, then pretending there were actually a bunch of storm troopers and telling them they fought well just to have Chopper blow up his cover story by showing them a recording of him shooting them  
  • That moment Ahsoka appeared to save the day from the fifth brother and the seventh sister with badass moves
  • Numa wearing a broach of her tooka doll from the Clone Wars
  • Ezra growing a whole head over Kanan’s shoulder after season 2…HOW FAST THEY GROW
  • CALEB DOOM? KANAN HAS A DIFFERENT NAME? AND DOOM IS HIS LAST NAME???? Oh wait, it’s spelled Dume…that makes more sense
  • When the separatist droids said “roger, roger” and Ezra asked “Who’s Roger?”
  • Giving the clone wars an official ending in “The Last Battle”
This is the funniest thing I’ve read in months omfg

I present… Kevin. Be sure to check out the original source because the OP goes into more detail/elaborates on some things in later comments.


It’s not uncommon as a teacher to have students who are a bit behind the curve in certain aspects, but 99.99999% of the time they are keen on something. They might not understand how to identify a noun or what theme is, but they somehow know how to make a mean plate of nachos. You learn pretty quick to not judge fish for their tree climbing ability, ya know?

I thought this was the rule when I was teaching until I met Kevin. Kevin isn’t his real name, but it doesn’t matter because he can’t spell it anyway. Kevin was a student of mine during my last year of teaching. He came to my classroom with very little to show for his academic past. He had moved a few times and thus was missing a lot of typical test scores that we use to try and ballpark their ability (Don’t worry, it was a ballpark…..we didn’t make major decisions until we actually had a chance to talk and work with a student for a bit.) I thought “That’s fine. I’ll just do some one-on-one with Kevin and see what’s up” One on One with kevin was like conversing with someone who’d forgotten everything in a freak, if not impossible, amnesia incident. There was no evidence that he had learned anything past the 2nd grade….and now he was in 9th grade. Flabbergasted, I figured we needed to get more serious with this. If he was going to be in my class, I needed to know why and how.

I decided to meet with him, his guidance counselor, his parents, and another teacher to see what was really going on. This is where it all became clear. It was by some incredible fluke that his family hadn’t been wiped off the face of the Earth years ago. Odds are his entire heritage was based on blind luck and some type of sick divine intervention that saves his family every time a threat presents itself. Kevin was the genetic pinnacle of this null achievement. Even my instructional lead, a woman who could find a redeeming trait in a Balrog, failed to see any reason this kid or his family should be alive today.

So here’s a list of events that made it abundantly clear that god exists and he’s laughing uncontrollably.

  • Kevin frequently forgot when/where class was. On more than one occasion, I had to retrieve him from other classrooms.
  • Kevin ate an entire 24 pack of crayons, puked, and then did it again the next day. This is 9th grade. I have no idea where he got crayons.
  • Kevin’s dad wrote tuition checks and mailed them to me…his English teacher. This was a public school. When I gave it back to Kevin, voided, to give to his dad with a brief note explaining that this is a public school, Kevin got in trouble for trying to spend it at 711 after school.
  • Kevin was removed from the culinary arts program after leaving a cutting board on the gas stove and starting a fire….twice
  • Kevin threw his lunch at the School Resource Officer and tried to run away. He ran into a door and insisted it wasn’t him.
  • Kevin stole my phone during class. I called it. It rang. He denied that it was ringing. (Not that it wasn’t his, not that he did it…, he denied that the phone was actually ringing). He tried it three times before the end of the year.
  • Kevin called the basketball coach a “Motherfucking Bitch” during gym. Basketball tryouts were that afternoon. Kevin tried out. It didn’t go well.
  • Kevin’s mom could never remember which school he went to. She missed several meetings because she drove to other schools (none of which he ever went to)
  • Kevin tazed himself in the neck before a football game
  • Kevin kept a bottle of orange koolaide in his backpack for about 4 months. He thought it would turn into alcohol. He drank it during homeroom and threw up.
  • Kevin say the N-word a lot. Kevin was white. The highschool was 84% black. Kevin got beat up a lot.
  • Kevin stole another student’s Iphone….and tried to sell it back to them.
  • Kevin didn’t understand that his grade was dependent on tests, quizzes, homework, classwork, and participation. Kevin finished his first semester with a 3% average. He tried to bribe me with $11.
  • Kevin spit on a girl and said “You should get out of those wet clothes”. The girl was the Spanish Student Teacher.
  • Kevin didn’t know dogs and cats were different animals.
  • Kevin tried to download porn onto a computer in the library… the circulation desk….while he was logged on.
  • Kevin asked a girl to prom (he was in 9th grade and freshmen don’t go to prom) by asking for her phone number and then texting her his address
  • Kevin got gum in his hair, constantly.
  • Kevin regularly tried to cheat on assignments by knocking the pile over, grabbing one before I had picked them all up, and then writing it name on it wherever there was room.
  • Kevin had several allergies, but neither his parents nor he could remember what they were. They were very concerned that “the holiday party” (it’s high school, we don’t have those) would have peanuts. When they finally got a doctor’s note….he was allergic to amoxicillin
  • Kevin and his parents took a trip to Nassau (how the fuck did they even get airline tickets?) and forgot all their luggage at home. I didn’t believe him when he told me until I talked to him mom, who told me 1st thing when I saw her at the bi-weekly meeting.
  • Kevin’s grandfather apparently died in a chainsaw accident. I can only assume God was looking the other way that day.

all i could think of with adrien taking constant showers during akuma attacks was that adventure time scene from Flute Spell 

if he had been in the bathroom when volpina abducted him, marinette knows he would have stayed true to his budding romance with ladybug. tikki’s just concerned about how much time marinette’s spending thinking about adrien sans clothing

Critical Roll

This a half-rant, simply because I’m tired and it’s fucking 2 in the morning. Anyways, I noticed that Critical Roll is top on Tumblr, as of right now, and I would like to say that while they are a good group of funny people that know how to play the game correctly.
Matt Mercer(?) (Idk how the last name is spelled) is not the greatest DM/GM/Storyteller ever. He is a good one. Because guess what, he isn’t the best.
Why is that u ask?
The reason is simple. He works well with his players. Y'all should realize that he is a good GM, because he knows how to work with HIS players. If I played a game with Matt, I probably wouldn’t have much fun. Because I’m used to my players.
(The only person that could be called the best is Gary Gygax, but I’m sure 80% of the critical Roll fandom doesn’t know who that is)

Sub-part: I find the fandom around critical roll to be annoying as all hell.
It honestly could just be because I dislike most people, especially those of my age group and younger.
I like to call them the “Hip-rollesters” since they jump into critical roll with no knowledge of anything TRPG based. And then feel they have the fucking power and knowledge to tell me how to play my games and who is the best.
Fuck u, u dirty scumbags.
Tell me what game helped pull the D&D u worship (it’s a good game, I have nothing against it) out of the fucking mud, and made it user friendly for all. Pathfinder. The same game that also sponsored the creation of fan-magazines and sells less successful third-party TRPGS on their site to help them out.
(It’s also the game CR played before the newest edition of D&D came out, which again, was written with the help of Pathfinder writers.)

If that’s not enough to test your endless fucking knowledge. Tell me what Dragonlance, Spelljammer, Darksun, Glorantha, Shadowrun, World of Darkness, Mutants and Masterminds, FATE core system, The Five Rings, and Gamma World are. Then u fucking say what u want to me and I won’t consider it baby talk.

BFFs (Mason x Reader(Platonic))

Fandom: Teen Wolf

Request: “Could you do an imagine where the reader is Masons best friend and just have the imagine be about them being best friends? if that makes sense..? :)”

Word Count: 700+

A/N: sorry this took 5,000 years to get out. i forgot this was supposed to be an imagine so this is more of a drabble but i will more than like post another part that ties in with this. sorry for any typos ❤✨😘

“Son of May which dress should I wear?” I say as I hold up different opinions, he laughs and points to the one on my left. “The one on the left Lady Sift.” I place my goat over my heart and bow as I say, “Asgard appreciates your assistance.” “You’re such a nerd.” I wink at him as I put away the other dress and say, “You know it.”
Mason and I had been best friends since the diaper days. But when he went to beacon hills my mother had other plans and decide she wanted me to start my freshmen year abroad but now that I’m back Mason was helping me get ready for my first day at Beacon Hills High School. “You know I don’t really understand why you’re obsessing over this, it’s not like everyone doesn’t already know you.” I scoff as I pick out my shoes and then turn to mason, “How about because I glowed up. I mean before I was a potato and now I’m French fries.” Mason laughed as he shook his head and said, “I can’t with you Y/N, but I guess you’re right. You have changed a bit.” “A bit? Mason look at me, I have boobs and a butt now! I know that’s not exactly your cup of tea but ain’t nothing bitty about this ass.” Mason stood up as he laughed while making his way to the door, “I’m officially done with you, I’m going to bed I’ll see you in the morning. We’re taking your truck or my car?” “My truck.” He nods his head and give me a hug, “Goodnight Y/N/N, love ya bud.” “Night Mason, love ya too.”
I woke up the next morning refreshed and ready for the day ahead, I quickly showered and dressed then headed downstairs to find my mom and Mason sitting around the island eating breakfast. “Good morning Young One.” “Good morning Wise One.” I say as I greet my mom, I make myself a plate and join Mason. “How’d you sleep?” He nods his head and a bites off a piece of bacon, “Amazing I call dibs on that guest room every time I come over.” I quickly finish my food and put my dishes into the dishwasher, “Alright we should probably get going.” Mason says as he grabs our bags off the floor and passes me mine. I nod my head and grab my keys before saying goodbye to my mom.
As we drive to school Mason fills me in on the people of BHHS and his friends. “I’ll introduce you to everyone that you don’t know but they’re a pretty friendly bunch so you don’t have much to worry about.” I let out a nervous sigh as I begin to turn up the music and mutter out, “If you say so.” We pulled up to my parking spot and as soon as I step out my jeep my nerves kicked into overdrive.
I took a deep breathe and shut my door and walked towards the school with Mason at my side, he put an arm around my shoulder and rubbed up and down trying to soothe me. “I promise the school only seem intimidating from the outside.” “Mas you know I might talk a good game but when it comes down to it my anxiety chews me out something fierce. Maybe I should just go home, come back tomorrow, I mean they’d probably expect the new girl to be late or something.” “Come Y/N you’re a hot mama who can conquer anything.” “Like that time I conquer a whole plate of Tico’s Nachos and got our meals free?” He smirks down at me and says, “Exactly like that!” I chuckle and shake my head as we head to the office to get my schedule then we head to my locker, which thankfully was right next to Mason’s. “Well I’ll walk you to your first class and meet you afterwards. It looks like your second and third classes are next to each other so I’ll meet up with you have third and we’ll eat lunch with my friends, and I’ll introduce you.” “Kay, thanks for doing all this Mas. I’d be lost without you.” “What are best friends for right?
Hope you enjoyed it 😚🖤✨

A Little Speech For Our Favourite Robot, Kiibo. (SPOILERS)

I’ve been inactive because I found out that Kiibo dies by blowing himself up with the school :’)

And now, I shall make a speech to our favourite and loved robot.

*ahem* Kiibo, the innocent and sweet little robot that we can’t figure out how to spell his name. All he wanted was for people to acknowledge him as a normal human being, and not be a robot-racist. He was so innocent…but Ouma just had to ask if Kiibo had a d and that made us all question him and make jokes about him. I honestly never imagined that Kiibo would die, seeing a few screenshots from the last chapters proved that. But considering my luck is as bad as Komaeda’s despair, I knew something bad was gonna happen to one of my favourite characters in Drv3. First Rantarou, which I still don’t know if he’s alive or not (someone please tell me ;-;) considering the Danganronpa wiki says that he’s the ‘Ultimate Survivor’. Then Ouma, which I was pretty sad about, my poor Panta lovin man. And then I magically stumbled upon the wiki that said that Kiibo was dead, which I was pretty heartbroken by. I don’t know what makes Kiibo so special, but whatever it is, I love it (please no jokes about his d ;w;). I never felt this way about another Dr character. Sure Nekomaru turned into a robot, but I wasn’t that interested in Nekomaru in the first place. Gundam, my favourite character in Dr2, was cool and all (kinda reminded me of myself when I was younger, ya know being like the Dark Lord and all-) but honestly, not as special as the robot child Kiibo. Maybe it’s the white hair and blue eyes (i’m really attracted to those), maybe it’s his beautiful personality, maybe I don’t know, maybe I just like him, probably. Kiibo was a magnificent character, and I kinda understand why they named him ‘Kiibo’. We all know his name is the play on word for ‘hope’ and it’s true, it’s like Kiibo gave hope to everyone who survived the killing game, by exploding the school along with himself. I am saddened that he had to die, and I really wish for a Drv3 anime where he maybe doesn’t die, but he was a pure and innocent robot that everybody can’t help but love. Honestly if I had the option to choose for a survivor to die instead of Kiibo, I would pick (oh people are gonna get triggered by this-) Himiko (I honestly don’t like her that much please don’t hate me ;w;). But everything has to happen (sadly), and that means our beautiful robot child has to die. You will always be remembered Kiibo, as that one robot who was too pure and innocent for the world, and who we could never figure out if you had a d. Rest in peace Kiibo ;w;.

anonymous asked:

You didn't answer my ask about your url the other day

First Link and Second Link

So I mean, for starters the ask you sent me could be answered in my FAQ with 2 different long ask replies.

Second of all, the post you linked me to is by a friend of mine. And I 2000% respect his opinion but mine differs and I’m not about to start a dispute.

From your ask: “consider changing your url, especially if you aren’t Cuban or even Hispanic. Tayler (Isn’t is spelled Taylor?) isn’t even a Hispanic name

Third of all, you literally just…… fucking…. said I’m not Hispanic because of my NAME? How racist can you fucking be? Like, well actually Tayler is my middle name or one of them actually (I have a few). My first name is Leslie and my last name is Garcia. Congratufuckinglations you now know my whole entire name, please doxx me. 

Anyway though, anybody who has ever met me can very clearly tell I’m Hispanic (Mexican to be specific!!!) thanks for trying to erase who I am to prove your own point. Also thanks for proving MY point too. 

I’ve been arguing that anybody who says his last name HAS to be Hispanic sounding is being minorly racist themselves. Because, you do realize that a name doesn’t dictate race, ethnicity, heritage, ANYTHING AT ALL. A name can be changed to have meaning but in all honesty, it originally doesn’t. My last name Garcia? It has zero sentimental value or connection to my heritage or race. I actually can’t WAIT to get married and change my last name. You know why? Because I always get the “Lol that person over there is a Garcia too, are they your cousin?” bullshit and I hate it. Last names have zero connection to who you are or what you identify as. A name can always be changed if you want it to be different or special or actually have meaning. 

I know that was a bit off topic but my point is, just because his last name could be “”””white sounding”””” doesn’t mean he suddenly isn’t Cuban. You wanna know what my sisters last name is? McManus. That’s right, my 100% Hispanic sister has the last name McManus. And guess what? I have an aunt who married my uncle and she took on his last name so her new last name is Garcia but wanna know what her previous last name was? Johnson. Wanna know what she was? Mexican. Wanna know what both of her parents were? One was Mexican and the other Mexican too. Wanna know what their parents were? All Mexican as well. Where the fuck did Johnson come from? They have ZERO fucking clue, they just know its been in their family for as long as they can go back. Shit happens. My Aunt doesn’t identify as half white because of her last fucking name. She’s still a full on Mexican. 

Another thing you said to me in your other ask “You should consider changing your url” guess what? This is MY goddamn blog. I really fucking hate how everybody always goes “You can do whatever you want on your own blog” but then turn around and tell others what to do on their blogs. Anybody I’ve ever seen who is against McClain always says “This is my blog, I’ll do what I want on it” and yes, please, do what you want on your own blog and I’ll do what I want on my own blog. I’m not forcing anybody to use McClain, contrary to that I love seeing people give Lance a different last name. I’ve read several fics where he’s a Sanchez, Gonzalez, Prez and other names. And guess what? I still adore him in all of those different stories, why? Because his last name has zero meaning to me. His damn name could be SMITH for all I care and I’d still call him my Cuban son. I like the name McClain because it reminds me that mixed families are everywhere (my nephew is a mixed boy for example!!! And guess what he identifies as? Mexican. He tells everybody he’s Mexican even though he’s white passing. It doesn’t matter about your last name, what matters is how YOU identify yourself.) and it also reminds me that there are full blooded Hispanics out there who have a white sounding last name (My aunt Sandra!!!!!) and I prefer that to the slightly toxic “He HAS to have a Hispanic sounding last name in order to BE Hispanic.” no, no he fucking doesn’t. He doesn’t have to because like I’ve said a million and five times, there’s nothing to a name unless YOU put a connection and meaning behind it. 

So yes, if somebody thinks that Lance’s last name being Sanchez makes him more relatable then PLEASE, please give him that Hispanic last name. If somebody thinks that giving him a Hispanic last name makes him more human to them, then please, do it. BUT if somebody thinks that he can’t be Hispanic unless he has a Hispanic sounding last name then kindly fuck off because that’s some toxic shit I don’t need or want in my life. I’m going to continue to use McClain until a name for him is confirmed, if his last name is confirmed to be anything other than McClain then I’ll definitely start using his actual last name, I’ll stop using McClain, I’ll even go back and switch the names in my fics. But only when and if his last name is confirmed as anything. But seriously, this is my blog, I can do what I want on it, I’m not forcing anybody to use McClain, I don’t even include McClain in posts I make that might gain notes. I just don’t because I know there are people who hate that name. 

I’m sorry if this seemed aggressive but I’m tired of people telling me I’m racist because I like the name McClain. I’m tired of people telling me every few weeks that I should stop using it, that I should change my url. I’m just tired. And now I’m tired of people saying I’m not Hispanic because I use McClain and because my name is TAYLER. Which btw is spelled correctly, kindly fuck off.
