latin iv

just another arya and dany parallel:

both are thrown into environments where they don’t speak the language. dany joins the dothraki where she is lost and alone. she cannot even speak to her new husband. but she has irri, a girl her own age, to teach her to speak their tongue. this helps her grow more confident among her new people. 

arya arrives in braavos and is instantly scared by the prospect of being friendless and unable to communicate in a foreign city. the waif becomes arya’s language teacher and *appears* to be of age with her. arya perfects her braavosi by living among the people while also learning several more tongues. 

1. THERE ARE TWO BOYS,
1. THERE ARE TWO GIRLS,

SO MAYBE YOU’RE IN LOVE WITH YOUR FINGERTIPS CHIPPED AND BLOODY,
SO MAYBE HE’S MORE BEAUTIFUL WITH EYES CLOSED AND HEART COLD,


2. AMANS, VIVO SANGUINOQUE.
2. MORIENS, FRANGO ORIORQUE.


SHIELD YOUR EYES, CLUTCH YOUR HANDS,
HOLD YOUR BONES, HOLLOW YOUR THROATS


3. THE GODS ARE LIVING INSIDE YOUR RIB BONES
3. THE GODS, BEHIND YOUR EYES, BEHIND YOUR CHEEKS


TAKE MY SKIN                    AWAY
FROM MY BARE                 CHEST


4. YOU SAID YOU WANTED TO KILL A GOD.
4. LOOK AT YOUR FINGERS AND CHOOSE.


TAKE THIS KNIFE FROM MY HANDS AND ASK,
WHY IS MORTALKIND SO FRAGILE?

i feel like romania varies so much according to location. like, i have a friend who's romanian, and where she's from they speak in a way that sounds almost russian. and i was once in a coffee shop overhearing a group of romanian people and for like a good 20 minutes i thought they were speaking spanish

romania is influenced by its location what with being surrounded by slavs but it’s still a country of latin origin

ive been learning german for years and im still a german noob i hate it…. but also knowing english and german already gives one an edge where it comes to parts of vocabulary of other germanic languages

message me off anon if you want into the slav discord chat!

interesting, germans tell me dutch sounds like german spoken by a drunk dude

as the Prophecy foretold…..

THE CAMBRIDGE LATIN COURSE: STAGE IV

QUINTUS EST FILIUS (THE SON). QUINTUS EST STERCULUS MOLESTUS (AN ANNOYING LITTLE SHIT). QUINTUS ROGAT QUAESTIONES AB OMNIBUS (ASKS EVERYONE QUESTIONS). QUINTUS NON ABFUTAT (DOES NOT FUCK OFF). HE GETS LESS ANNOYING LATER. LATER HE TURNS INTO AN INSANE MASS MURDERER. JUST YOU FUCKING WAIT.

MEANWHILE, GRUMIO EBRIUS EST (DRUNK). AGAIN. GRUMIO BASICALLY SPENDS ALL HIS TIME IN CULINA DRUNK WITH AN ANCILLA OR TWO. HE NEVER SEEMS TO DO ANY COOKING. HE’S A REALLY SHIT SLAVE. GRUMIO E TABERNA REVENIT (COMES HOME FROM THE PUB). GRUMIO EBRISSIMUS EST (COMPLETELY FUCKING HAMMERED). 

GRUMIO PICTURA VIDIT (SEES THE PAINTING). MAGNUS FUTUTUS LEO  (A HUGE FUCKING LION) EST IN PICTURA. GRUMIO EST PERTERRITUS (TERRIFIED.) “EHEU!” (OH SHIT) SAYS GRUMIO, “FUTUTUS MATRIS LEO EST IN TRICLINIO!” (THERE’S A MOTHERFUCKING LION IN THE DINING ROOM). GRUMIO ABCURRIT. (RUNS AWAY). GRUMIO IS A REALLY SHIT SLAVE, AND A COMPLETE FUCKING IDIOT.
