Stemmed from my tweet about how “Kiyoshi + Hanamiya = Furihata makes sense because then Furi inherits Kiyoshi’s kindness and is often nervous wreck because the way Hanamiya treats him”. Lovely Bree joined the convo and LALALA NEED TO DRAW THIS!!!

She even asked me to do collab and I was like jsdjdfjkkjdkjdkjkjsdjkjkdsjsdfkjsdjlkjksdjk YASSS I WANT TO BBBUT graduation paper sobs. We’ll settle with comic strips I think(?), and there will be akafuri right, Bree???



I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words

How did you study German? What are your tips? 😊

Hi! :) Study language methods depend on your level, on your inclinations/ learning style (visual, auditory, tactic), on many factors, but I´m glad to share my experience, if it helps!

I have been studying German for 4 years now and I have tried many different methods according to my progresses and my ability to learn.

First,  I attended  German courses at University for three years: we did some reading, listening and speaking in class, working with a Lehrbuch/Kursbuch.
In class we got  also grammar explanations and exercises , and as homework we had some more grammar exercises and vocabulary exercises from the Arbeitsbuch.

We also got a text comprehension with questions and the task to write down a summary. We trained a lot the grammar part but unfortunately we hadn’t much occasion to train conversation skills.

During the exam we had to present from one up to three texts and we could choose among the texts, we had worked on during the year.

I would have german lesson thrice a week and I have attended, for a year and a half a B2 conversation course at Goethe Institut Neapel.

I also attended 2 summer courses in Berlin and  a prep course to get the DaF certificate, a B2/C1 certificate for the admission to german universities.

At the beginning, regular practice is the key.

I regularly did my homework, I read and wrote small texts in german and I noted new words in a small Vocabulary notebook, that I always  carry in the bag and I take it updated.

A soon as I can, I take the notebook out and I go through the words repeating them aloud and forming sentences.

At home I also used to write down some sentences with the new words I found in the Arbeitsbuch.

Some tips on learning vocabs in german:

  • Nouns: learn genre, plural and preposition + cases;  f.ex. die Angst/ Ängste vor + Dat
  • Adjectives: learn prefixes and suffixes f.ex. lesbar, unlesbar;  learn adjectives/participles with preposition+ cases, f.ex. abhängig von+DAT
  • Verbs: learn verbs paradigms (present/past/past participle forms) f.ex. gehen, ging, ist gegangen, learn verbs with prepositions + cases, f.ex sich von etwas ablenken.
  • Prefixes and particles are fundamental. learn to distinguish f.ex verbs according to the prefix (aufmachen- zumachen,  aufnehmen-abnehmen) and in general learn the meaning/function of prefixes f.ex what have “entnehmen” and “entfernen” in common? the prefix “ent-“ has a negative meaning: entnehmen= to remove/ to extract/ tp take sth out of sth/ to deduce; entfernen= to remove, erase, eliminate)
  • Learn words in context! As soon as you reach an intermediate-advanced level, search for words in monolingual dictionaries and corpora and write definitions and explanations of the words in your vocab notebook instead of translations. Look for and note also synonyms or antonyms.  

Some Ideas to practice the language and learn:

  1. Read the news on the web. Deutsche Welle (DW) is an excellent resource for learners from B1. At the beginning, read local daily papers, they are easier than big national newspapers like Süddeutsche Zeitung, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Die Zeit, Die Welt, der Spiegel. I read die Berliner Zeitung at least once a week.
  2. Hear german podcasts: I can good recommend the ones from DW exp. die langsame gesprochene Nachrichten, Alltagsdeutsch, Sprachbar, Wort der Woche, Fokus Europa.
  3. Watch german series: I can recommend the Websoaps Jojo sucht das Glück on DW Youtube channel and among the Tv series  “Deutschland 83"
  4. Watch the Cartoons and films dubbed in German (they are easier to understand than german films.)
  5. Read aloud. Repeat aloud. Change words and try to explain the meaning of a word/ a sentence on your own words. Talk to yourself, name aloud the things you see and you look at.
  6. Stick some stick-notes on things with their name in German on it.
  7. Write a journal in German, open a youtube channel and register yourself while speaking about a theme, or telling about yourself, ecc. You will also receive a lot of feedbacks from other users.
  8. Do regular “Dictations”: by listening to the radio/to a podcast try to write down what you hear until you get it correct.
  9. Write your agenda/ grocery list/ time plan in German, organize your life in german. Do your researches on Wiki/ Internet in German, switch the language on social networks
  10. Find someone you can talk to in german, a tandem partner/rin, a pen friend, people to chat with through apps like italk, Tandem app, penpals.
  11. Ask yourself questions, be curious about new words, uses, curiosities  about Germans and their land.
  12. Learn by heart songs/poetry in german.


One of my cats just came running in from the kitchen, crying like a baby. Turns out he got his head wet, and wanted me to know about it. He huffed and walked off when I tried to dry him, so… I guess he just wanted to warn me about the cat bowl that’s been there ever since I brought him home?

It’s a bit late in life to be learning the “Water dat u drinks, sometiems trys two drinks u,” lesson. But okay, kitty.

No, I see the door… I’ll let myself out of the fandom :T

Feeling art block-ish and uncreative with art I’ve been trying to work on, so I took a break to up my artist morale. I wanted to do some Don x Karai art before I feel like I can’t (‘cause I do like Leorai). Though I did figure out how these two could actually work in the current story arch ( >3>);; //send help :T

I can’t promise I won’t draw more Donarai, sorry OTL

Imagine trying to save your relationship with Jared

[[ Requested by Anon ]]
Dear Anon, you asked for a fanfiction which is inspired by a 30STM song, and I don’t really know if it’s anything like you wanted, but hope you’ll like it!

Jared wants to break up. 

You don’t.

You promised each other that whatever happens, you’ll stay together.

Your relationship’s been awful the past few months; arguments after arguments, now you barely speak to each other. At first you blamed his work – he’s been busy all the time, he got home tired and stressed and just wanted to be alone while you wanted to be with him. But frankly you were no exception. You’ve been working a lot lately, and the fact you both wanted different things, you both could never really rest poisoned your relationship. Yesterday he said he was fed up with you and with all of this and that he wanted it to end. He said he was going to move out of your house. You bought it about a year ago, you wanted to get married this year.

“I want to save it.” You say. He’s right in front of you and looks tired as always. He says nothing, but what scares you the most is that you can see in his eyes that he just doesn’t care anymore. “I want to save what’s between us.”

“There’s only anger and hatred between us now.”

“You know it’s not true.” You try to convince him. “We’ve loved each other once, don’t you remember? You said you loved me more than the moon and back.”

“That was… like in another life.” Jared’s look is empty. He doesn’t feel that way anymore, and it hurts you more than you can bear. You’re afraid this pain is going to break your ribs and tear your lungs apart. Maybe if you’d scream now, maybe you should and now you want to scream as loud as you can, maybe it would get rid of the pain. You don’t want to cry but it’s hard to fight the tears.

“That was our life. The one we live now is not. It’s not even life. Please, let us try. We can get it back, we can be us again. I clearly remember how it felt when you said you loved me, and I want to feel it again.” Desperately, but you don’t say that.

“We tried. It didn’t work.”

Last weekend Jared stayed at Shannon’s place. At least that’s what he said but you didn’t believe him. You wanted to but a quiet, hopeless voice in your head said he was lying. You couldn’t sleep all night, and in the morning when he came home he found you sitting on the couch.

“How’s Shan?” you asked him.

He didn’t look at you, just tossed his jacket onto a chair and sat down next to you.

“I uhm… I don’t know.” Of course he didn’t. “I wasn’t at his place.”

You pressed your lips together so hard it hurt to stop yourself from asking where he was. He glanced at you and answered anyway.

“I didn’t do it.” His voice was barely louder than a whisper. He promised once he’d never do that to you. “I wanted to, but I didn’t.”

“Who was she?”

“I don’t know. Just some girl…”

“Just some girl” you repeated. The fact that cheating on you crossed his mind didn’t really surprise you to be honest, you were afraid it’s going to happen at some point. But that it was just some random girl he didn’t even know was like stabbing a knife into your stomach. It seemed like anyone was better than you.

“I swear to you, I didn’t cheat on you. I never did.”

There’s nothing you could say. You stood up, and walked away. You heard him sniffling silently, and you wanted to turn around to see if he’s crying. You clenched your fist and without looking at him you went upstairs.

You two didn’t really speak since then, except when he announced it’s over.

“Honey, we should end it before any of us does something stupid. I don’t want to hurt you” he says to you, and it’s killing you that he still calls you honey. He sighs and bites his lower lip. “What do you want me to do? Promise you it’s going to be alright? Promise something stupid again and hurt you in the end?” He’s angry. Maybe he’s angry at you, maybe he’s angry at himself, and it doesn’t even matter. “I don’t want that!”

“I don’t need any promise, okay? The only thing I need is you, for fuck’s sake!” You cannot stay calm either, your hands are shaking. Why can’t he understand how you feel? How can he be so careless about you?”

“I’m sorry.”


It’s been about a week, you haven’t even spoken since. He left and that was it. To be honest, you felt like shit, and as the autumn arrived early this year you caught cold right away. You’ve been coughing badly for the last few days. Your doctor prescribed some medicine, but your state hasn’t gotten any better yet. Now, home alone you cozy up in your bedroom with a mug of warm tea and a great book, and you refuse to so anything else. You don’t look to you side, you hate seeing how empty the bed is without Jared sleeping next to you.

You suddenly push your book away as you reach for a tissue; you sneeze about 3-4 times in a row. You start to wonder if you’ll ever get better or you’ll just stay like this the whole season, when you hear loud talking from outside. Someone is calling your name, a shaky voice which you think you recognize. You wait for a few seconds, but when this person shouts again, you stand up and walk to the window.

The sky outside is dark, the stars and the moon are hiding behind huge clouds, the light of the street lamps paint everything yellow. Even Jared, his face is bathing in this artificial light, his long hair seems brighter now. He is standing outside your house and is looking up at your room’s window. When you pull over the curtains, he notices you.

“You didn’t pick up the phone!” he says. You don’t want to open the window, his voices is muffled. “I wanna talk to you.”

Surprised you don’t know what to do. First of all you didn’t expect him to show up, and you don’t understand why didn’t he come in, he still has his keys. Or at least he should have them.

“C’mon, babe! I’m not going anywhere till I can tell you how fucking sorry I am!”

He lifts up his arms for a second and this is the exact moment you realize he’s drunk. You bump your head into the cold glass and sigh. You know you have no other choice but closing the curtains and go back to your book. You don’t want to talk to him like this, it’d be no use.

You sit down and run your fingers into your hair contemplating what to even think about the situation, when you hear Jared’s voice again.

“What the hell…?” you mumble to yourself as you walk back to the window. You see him stepping closer to the house while he’s singing as loud as he can. At least that’s what he’s trying to do but it’s more like shouting. He bites off the end of some words or simply just mashed them up so you can’t really understand the lyrics. You don’t need to, though, you know it pretty well. It’s a 30STM song.

“We wereee da kings and queeeens of promise, we wereeee da victims of ourselves” He stops for a moment as he stumbles in his own legs while walking. You can’t help but laugh silently. You’ve never seen him like this before. “Maybe da childreeen o’ a lesser God, b’tween heaven and heeell.”

Opening the window you wrap your hands around yourself as the cold air comes in. Now you hear him louder but it doesn’t make the production any better.

“Jared, stop it!” you say, but he keeps singing. “Jared, stop already!”

“These lessons dat we’ve learned here have only just begun!”

“You’ll wake up the whole neighborhood!”

“Fuck da neighborhood! I wanna talk to you!”

“If I go down, will you stop singing?”

“We are da kiiiings!”

You close the window and now you definitely laugh. This is just too surreal and you’re sure Jared has no idea what he’s doing. And that he won’t remember any of this tomorrow. You should be angry at him actually, but the fact that he’s here makes you feel relieved.

You open the front door and he is standing right in front of you in total silence. You let him in which he can’t manage at first; his steps are unsteady and you wait for the moment when he falls down. In the end he reaches your living room safely and turns towards you.

“You were right. I don’t hate you.”

“Wow, that’s what I call romantic” you say crossing your arms in front of your chest.

“No, I mean… You were right. I thought we can’t save it… this… y’a know, us. And maybe we can’t maybe we’ll fuckin’ fail but I wanna try it please let us try it!” He steps closer to you, and you see despair in his eyes.

“Is it the alcohol speaking” you ask “or is it you?”

“Alright, I’m not gonna deny I had a few drinks, but only a few ‘kay? But it’s me. I want y’a back.”

You feel pain rushing through your whole body which you greet as an old friend; it’s the same feeling like when he shut the door after himself.

“Last week you said quite the opposite.” You take a step back, away from him. “Jay, I don’t know. I want to believe you, but… Jesus, I can’t figure out what the hell you want!”

“You you you you you only you.” He grabs you by the waist to pull you closer, you feel his body’s warmth through clothes. “I fucked up I know I am so sorry.” He kisses you and you can taste alcohol on his lips. “I just wanna be your fucking king again okay? Please let me be.”

He buries his head in your neck, hugging you tightly. You rest you hands on his back and just stand there. You don’t even know how you feel. Happy, scared, relieved, angry, sad? All at once?

When Jared lies down on the couch insisting you keep him company, you let him to cuddle up to you. “I love you” he mumbles. You keep petting his hair till he falls asleep, and in the silent room you start to believe, that maybe everything’s going to be okay.

Adding to that, on a more serious note, this explains why Jefferson was so pissed off by Hamilton dressing like "fake royalty". He was REALLY against the presidency turning into an aristocratic position, and made a point to relate to the common people. Hence, the out of style clothing, the informal way of greeting people, and lots of other historical examples.So yeah, he would have been pissed at the way Hamilton dressed, especially later in a song about Hamilton cheating the lower class.
