lit ladies inej ghafa; what about the nobodies and the nothings, the invisible girls? we learn to hold our heads as if we wear crowns. we learn to wring magic from the ordinary. that was how you survived when you weren’t chosen, when there was no royal blood in your veins. when the world owed you nothing, you demanded something of it anyway.

quick korean tips for beginners: pronouns
  • they are usually omitted 
  • to refer to yourself: use 나 in a casual setting if you are close with the listener or older than them; use 저 if they are strangers and/or older
  • dont use 너 as the second person if you are not, like, really close with them
  • dont use 당신 either its really awkward and not common 
  • actually dont pay too much attention to 2nd person pronouns and instead refer to people by their titles (especially if they are older) or full names+씨
  • 우리 is also used as the possessive without the particle. (우리 집 = our home)
  • 나 + 의 (possessive particle) = 내 my
  • 너 + 의 = 네 your (but pronounced and commontly written as 니 to diferenciate between 네 and 내)
  • the same rule applies to: 니가 = 네가 (and its def not the same as 내가)
  • 나/너 + 는 = 난 / 넌
  • 나/너 + 를 = 날 / 널

(since this is supposed to be quick and im totally improvising ill talk about titles later)
