it's not este but still so important

Annie Awards - #SaveWOY - Trending fourth

Dear Gemma Cummins! I apologize in advance, my English is not very good. First of all, I want to say thank you again for what you do. The campaign SaveWOY means a lot to all of us. So, I want to offer one event. You know, that Annie Awards will come soon. I want to offer to support our favorite cartoon and its creators on this day. To arrange one more “Trending Twenty-Seventh” (but February 4 or the day before). Likewise, to assign the exact time and make a bomb of fan support. Without any limitations. Let all the fans to share their thoughts, impressions, fanarts, favorite characters, episodes and jokes. Let they explain, why they love Wander Over Yonder, and why it and its creators really deserve this award. I believe, that this month is really important for this campaign. And it would be great to support Craig McCracken. Dave Thomas, Frank Angones, all command on this important day.

It certainly sounds like a great idea. I’m sure the WOY team would love the support. This might be a little short notice for some fans though but we should still try!

So Wanderers, what do you think? Shall we get WOY trending on Feb 4th? 8pm EST, tag “Wander Over Yonder” and “savewoy”, the topic is anything. Lots of posts of words of support, why the show deserves to win, anything you want! 

Let’s show our support! The Annie Awards could hold the key to Wanders future after all. 

Lucifans and casual viewers

i CANNOT stress this enough. Watch the show LIVE when it airs. If you have forgotten it airs at 9 PM EST/ 8PM CT. Its important. We are still beating the lead in Gotham but not by much.
2x14 Demo: 1.0 Viewership: 3.43 million
2x13 Demo 1.23 Viewership: 4.19 million

But C, you say “Its been renewed”
1. Yes, i know its been renewed so you think the live viewership may not matter but it does especially if we are on track to get a season 4.
But C, you say “i dont want to wait another day”
2. Yes, i know that it airs a day early in Canada and then gets distributed on bootleg sites. Think about how hard these actors have worked especially since weve only got FOUR MORE EPISODES to finish out a magnificent season 2.

I'm yet to get to German subjunctive but your post intrigued me so much, could you tell me more about this German awesomeness? :3

This… is gonna be long.

Okay, so in German, we have two forms of the subjunctive, creatively called Konjunktiv I (the present tense) and Konjunktiv II (the past tense). Konjunktiv II is much better known because it’s also what we use for the conditional, so I’ll start with that one before going on to what I meant before.

So first of all: forming it. You take the imperfect forms, if there’s a possibility to stick an umlaut on, you do so, and you add in an -e(-) as part of the ending if there wasn’t one already. Eg:

war       -      wäre
warst    -      wärest
war       -      wäre
waren   -      wären
wart      -      wäret
waren   -      wären
Here you see the added umlaut as well as some e’s

hatte       -      hätte
hattest    -      hättest
hatte       -      hätte
hatten     -      hätten
hattet      -      hättet
hatten     -      hätten
Here there were no e’s to add, but we have the umlaut

ging       -      ginge
gingst    -      gingest
ging       -      ginge
gingen   -      gingen
gingt      -      ginget
gingen   -      gingen 
Here there are no umlauts, but you see the extra e’s still

Many weak verbs have no difference in form, eg passte could be indicative or subjunctive. 
With some exceptions, the only verbs that are really used in Konjunktiv II are auxiliaries or modals (so sein, haben, werden, müssen, wollen*, sollen*, wissen, dürfen, können, mögen..). Wollen and sollen don’t take umlauts, and some of these verbs have forms you may have already seen (ich möchte, ich könnte for example). Werden (würde, würdest, würde, würden, würdet, würden) is used as an auxiliary for most other verbs, eg ich würde passen instead of ich passte and ich würde gehen instead of ich ginge.

The main use of the imperfect subjunctive / Konjunktiv II is for the conditional or for hypothetical situations etc. For example:

Wenn ich reich wäre, würde ich nie wieder arbeiten.
If I were rich, I’d never work again.
Wenn ich die Zeit hätte, würde ich gern mitkommen.
If I had the time, I’d gladly come along.
Wenn ich Auto fahren könnte, müsste ich nicht den Bus nehmen.
If I could drive a car, I wouldn’t have to take the bus.

Onto the present / Konjunktiv I then. First we’ll talk about forming it, then I’ll explain its uses. This also works with extra e’s - you take the stem of the infinitive (ie remove the -en), and add the endings -e, -est, -e, -en, -et, -en. So we get:

You’ll notice that the ich, wir, and sie forms are all the same as the indicative, as they already had the e.


But what’s important is that almost all irregularities (except for sein, which I’ll get to) leave when you do this - you really do just take the stem, regardless of the verb.

habest* (not like hast)
Here again the ich, wir, and sie forms are still the same.

könne (not like kann)
könnest (not like kannst)
Here you’ll see that the ich form is also different because it’s not longer irregular like it used to be, though wir and sie are still the same

As I said, the one verb which has its own forms is sein, which goes sei, seiest, sei, seien, seiet, seien.

The most important thing that the present subjunctive is used for is reported speech. If you’re relaying somebody else’s words, you kind of “take a step back” from it, and so people can see that what you’re saying is not what you think, or even necessarily true, but what someone else has said. You’ll see it all the time in newspapers and any journalistic writing, really.
(I’m looking for good example sentences and so many of them are relationship advice hahaha)

Er sagt, ich sei seine Traumfrau (oder: Er sagt, dass ich seine Traumfrau sei).
He said that I’m his dream woman.
Sie sagte mir auf Englisch, sie könne kein Deutsch (oder: .. dass sie kein Deutsch könne).
She told me in English that she couldn’t speak German.
Er sagte, er habe das schon gemacht (oder: Er sagte, dass er das schon gemacht habe.
He said he already did it / had already done it.

It’s almost exclusively used in the 3rd person (sometimes in the 1st but not really ever in the 2nd). Because it communicates the idea of reported speech, you can use it without a clear “speech” word (sagen, behaupten, laut etc) and it means it can sort of take the idea of “supposedly/supposed to” or “apparently”. 
(NB - it also has a small use in like “wishes”, in parallel to other languages, so sentences like “long live… (Germany, the king etc)” or “thank god!/god be praised!” (es lebe… (Deutschland, der König usw) / Gott sei dank!) would also take this)

Finally, although it’s the present subjunctive that is normally used for reported speech, if the form is the same (so normally for the plural), you would replace it with the past. For example, in the sentence Die Leute sagen, sie haben kein Geld (The people say they have no money), haben could be indicative or subjunctive, so you’d see it put into the Konjunktiv II instead to make sure it’s clear - Die Leute sagen, sie hätten kein Geld.

This is a very long post and yet I feel like I’ve covered an awful lot in a very short space of time. Let me know if there’s anything I messed up or anything else you want further clarified!
