little stores

I am really really emotionally fragile about the idea of Harry just perusing the aisles at his local grocery store, little basket in hand, gently picking up a carton of organic farm fresh eggs… reaching for some milk and checking the expiration date…. standing in front of an assortment of green vegetables deciding whether he wants kale or brussel sprouts for dinner….. it’s beautifully mundane but I bet he looks like an angel doing it and I’m in pain

List of Thedosian pet names for writing and roleplaying, brought to you by Bella

We can skip trade tongue and go right into the big three: Antivan, Orlesian, and Tevene.

I’m going to start with Tevene, cos it’s my fave. The main thing to remember is that female pet names end in -a, and others end in -us. The famous amatus actually is amata if you are addressing a woman. Here’s a few more from Latin. It’s not a language with a lot of pet names. I did my best.

  • mellitus/mellita: honeyed one, aka honey (this one is my fave)
  • carissimus/carissima: dearest one, aka dear
  • deliciae: darling
  • venustus/venusta: sweet
  • lepidus/lepida: cute

Orlesian is easy. French is brimming with pet names and terms of endearment. Here are my faves.

  • mon cœur: my heart, my love
  • mon chaton: my kitten
  • mignon: cute
  • doudou: tricky to translate!! i had trouble putting this in english with my cajun ass lmao. basically it’s a security blanket or snuggle buddy. trust me on this one. it’s cuter in french. it’s also my fave.
  • ma moitié: my other half
  • mon loulou: another weird one. doesn’t really MEAN anything. it’s just cutesy.
  • ma chèrie: my darling (f)
  • ma chère: my dear (f)
  • bichette: little doe (f)
  • colombe: dove (f)
  • ma lutine: my elf or pixie (f)

Antivan is tricky. I prefer it as Italian, but most seem to prefer Spanish. Here’s a few of Italian anyway. Some of them are the same in both languages, which makes it easier. I admit i had help with this one, as I don’t speak Italian fluently.

  • caro/cara: dear
  • carino/carina: cute
  • gattino/gattina: kitten
  • cucciolo/cucciola: puppy
  • dolcezza: sweetheart
  • grillo/grilla: cricket
  • bambola/bambolina: doll, little doll
  • ciccia/cicci: sweet, tasty
  • streghetta mia: my little witch. personal fave
  • bonus: add -ino or -ina to a name to make it ‘little.’ example: Zevranino = little Zevran

These are just a FEW but I hope they are helpful, feel free to use.

Oh.

That awkward moment when you realize Redwall Abbey is the richest place in the entire Redwallverse.

Things The Abbey Has That Blow Vermins’ Minds:

  • Stained glass windows. Windows that aren’t just a hole in your wall.
  • Fruit trees. All in one place. With several varieties available.
  • Really big well-built stone walls.
  • Fireplaces constructed so the room doesn’t fill with smoke.
  • Actual beds. No seriously. Think about it.
  • A hand-woven tapestry that decorates an entire wall.
  • Multiple ovens.
  • A fish pond. And it’s not just for decoration. But it kind of is.
  • A deep cellar that keeps drinks cool. (That’s like the future.)
  • Stone floors, not dirt floors.
  • An apiary. Just… just go in your backyard and grab some honey. Do it.
  • Wall sconces.
  • Random assorted objects made of metal and not wood. Whoa.
  • Books. Parchment. Quill pens. Ink. More than one of these items each.
  • A well-stocked food and beverage collection.
  • Abbess Germaine’s spectacles. Like, glasses.
  • Legitimate stonework. Decorative gargoyles, statues, etc.
  • Martin’s sword.
  • Furniture. Chairs that are at least mildly comfortable. Cabinets.
  • Two ridiculously huge, shiny metal bells.
  • Soap.

If Jimmy could get Harry to do a Jeffrey’s sketch I might actually die. Even without Horatio Sanz or Will Ferrell, I’d still love it. Frankly even without Harry. Really all I need is Jimmy with an edgy haircut folding shirts with a smug sense of superiority. Just give me Jeffrey’s!!

Max sitting with the Milking Mothers and they teach him how to knit.  He starts knitting for relaxation and makes random things.  

Furiosa finds a brightly colored cozy on the stick shift of her new war rig.  It’s so weird but so precious she can’t remove it.  

War pups with misshapen knit hats on.  

Big, tough, War Boys with little black knitted baggies tied to their belts.  

Max makes new fingerless gloves for Dag, in a really garish bright green yarn since she works with the plants.  She doesn’t really like them but wears them anyways because a gift carries the giver’s warm spirit in it.

Max leaves a light yellow pouch for Toast…she is confused but oddly delighted.  No one has ever given her a gift before.  

Capable requests a shawl and Max tries to make something somewhat “pretty”, so he asks his knitting mentor how to make something different, but he ends up making something that looks like an old fish net.  Capable still loves it because it’s unique.

The next try he nails it, perfect shawl, in Cheedo’s favorite colors.

He makes a few more for the Vuvalini and some of the younger girls at the Citadel.

He makes one more, out of dark blue and aqua-marine colored yarn with flecks of light green and tan.  He’d been saving this yarn for a while.  It reminds him of the ocean where his home used to be, but it also reminds him of his new home, where he is now.  He puts it away and insists he just made it to keep his hands busy, but everyone else knows why he made it.  Capable snatches it when he’s not around and leaves it for Furiosa, with a note that simply says, “from Max”.

  • ???? uhm???
  • this sweet man is offering you the world on a silver platter.
  • you could have literally anything you ask for, just say the word and he’ll arrange twenty different options for you to choose from.
  • yet there you are, having last night’s dinner leftovers for lunch.
  • you have this little habit of storing food in tupperware containers, that’s all there is in the fridge now thanks to you.
  • that… can’t be healthy… jesus christ.
  • honey, the chef has a perfectly good lunch already set up and ready for you to eat.
  • could it be that you didn’t like today’s menu?
  • is it the chef’s cooking? he can hire a better one if that’s the issue here.
  • jumin nO don’t fire the poor man.
  • whenever you’re out shopping together, you always seem way too wary of price tags and end up choosing the cheapest stuff regardless of whether you like it or not.
  • and he always insists you don’t?? need?? to spare any expenses??
  • and so these little incidents keep happening and he grows more and more concerned.
  • and it soon becomes a problem to someone who’s been raised in a wealthy family where struggling to meet bills has never been a thing.
  • besides, jumin han’s way of showing love is through gifts.
  • which while excessive and a bit ridiculous in his case, it’s still a valid way of showing love, especially because he pours his heart out into every gift he gets you.
  • and actually, the first time he tries pampering you with expensive gifts, things get awkward and you seem so overwhelmed.
  • truth is you feel undeserving of his gestures because there’s no way in hell you could give him something equally good in exchange.
  • when you both finally realize it’s affecting your relationship, you decide to sit down and have a heartfelt talk.
  • safe to say he doesn’t give a damn about your past nor your income as what matters now is the present and the future you’re trying to build together.
  • there’s no need to feel insecure or ashamed if you do.
  • you have financial stability now, you don’t need to worry about bills or debts, and your only priorities should be taking care of yourself, doing what you’re passionate about without any restrictions, and stay faithful to your core values because that’s why he fell in love with you.
  • among several other reasons.
  • and come on, according to what he’s heard and read, a couple should have each other’s back and take care of one another: for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part.
  • yes this man actually recites the marriage vows as he’s holding your hands and looking at you like the sun shines out of your behind.
  • let’s not forget as well that he’s making huge efforts to tame his inner demons and ease his need of controlling your every move and decision.
  • so how about you try relaxing a little?
  • no more tupperwares, please.
  • and just know that he’ll treasure anything you get for him.
  • it does not matter if it’s not pricey, as long as it holds your heart, it’ll be more than enough.
  • bonus: he’s probably gotten inspired by your money saving skills and your strange ideas, so he’s started many projects just for you.
  • like he now wants to make everything fancy yet convenient and cheap for commoners, and he’s constantly asking you for advice.
  • jaehee tried to talk him out of it at first but… oh well, at least that’s better than his cat projects smh.
