  • When Jaehyun and Mark shared a bunk bed, Mark slept on the bottom bunk and always fell asleep first
  • Jaehyun would answer Mark when he talks in his sleep

  • Doyoung also had a lot of names for Taeyong: Taeyongie-hyung, Taeyoyongie-hyung, Taeyongyongie-hyung, Taeyoyoyo-hyung etc.

  • They had to play a game which required act out something they wanted to eat. Everyone agreed not to over-act and Doyoung immediately looked at Taeyong, “Yeah no over-acting, got it, Taeyong-hyung?” and everyone laughed.
  • Taeyong’s response was really whiney, “I don’t over-act~~~”

  • Everyone wants to be closer to the fans and hope they get to do things like radio broadcasts where they can directly interact with fans through comments etc.

trans. by me so cr. y-ta if taking out!
listen to NCT’s melon radio broadcast here!

I just think it's funny how...

People come to America from other countries, including East/Southeast Asian ones, to pursue careers in entertainment and are pressured to change their names to more western sounding ones and yet….

…. have to watch Scarlett Johansson play a character named Motoko Kusanagi, seems like…it wasn’t for her.

(edit: I do in fact know what GITS is about and understand that Motoko is a cyborg BUT the body did not have to be a white one and it shouldn’t have been. This should have been one of the few opportunities so far for a Japanese actress to lead a Hollywood film.)

This is kind of a rant so there’s no need for anyone to read it but I feel like this is an open and accepting place so i hope you guys don’t mind. I feel like I have been white washing myself from the moment I became self aware, my entire life I went by Gj because it sounded less ethnic than my actual name. It helped me blend in and was easier for everyone around me. Then the internet age came and almost immediately I embraced the name Benji and went with it, for no reason other than it sounded white and easy to pronounce. I’ve gone by Benji now for almost five years on the internet. It’s tiresome, it’s not true to myself and I feel like for a long time now I’ve just been shunning and hiding my ethnicity to make others comfortable. I’m tired of it, so I’m going to start going by my real name everywhere, and drop the act of trying to sound white and blend in, my real name is Gerardo Jose Figueroa, and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that.

Speaking of names, though it might be a super tiny spoiler, because Grell talks about Sebastian in the workplace (collection department) by referring to him as “Sebas-chan”, Ronald, who met Sebastian for the first time in the ship arc, ends up calling him “Sebas-chan” as well. Because their source of information is Grell, the entire Reaper Dispatch Association knew him as “Sebas-chan”.

ok but this is even funnier because in the translated versions, Grell’s nicknames for Sebastian (eg. Batsy/Sebby/etc) all sound MUCH MUCH less like the actual name than the Japanese version of “Sebas-chan” (which, lbr, is spelled the same way as Sebastian) 

the fact that most reaper only knew him as Batsy/Sebby instead of his full name

in other words
nobody knows your fucking name, Seb

My breath falters when I hear your name
Like it always used to.
But now it’s because it hurts,
Hearing your name fall from other’s lips
Alongside other names.
It hurts.
It used to be like a gentle kiss
Or a bouquet of flowers.
It was the most beautiful sound
And my heart would race.
Now it hurts
And I hold back tears every time
When I think of your life now,
When I think of the life we threw away.
My breath falters when I hear your name,
I hate to think what would happen if I saw your face.
#GiveLanceACubanName

when i say that i - as a latinx - am against vld lance having the last name mcclain and that i want him to have an appropriately cuban name, i usually get racist white people telling em to shut up and/or other latinx people jumping on me saying “well my last name sounds white but i’m still latinx!”

of course you are. you can’t choose your last name after all. and your identity is valid regardless of a name you didn’t ask for.

but lance isn’t a real person. the creators CAN choose his last name. they have that kind of power. and the name “mcclain” comes from previous WHITE versions of lance. to have them stick with it would be a very bad move, both for writing and for representation. for representation, it would be them making a conscious decision to have him appear/sound more white/westernized. for writing, it would be a lazy cop out, considering they’ve already made the decisions to change shiro’s name and ethnicity.

for those who don’t know, here’s a breakdown. 80′s voltron was an anime from japan. all the characters had japanese names, regardless of what in their ethnicity was. then came the english dub and - as was very common in older dubs (remember jounouchi from yugioh being called “joey” cause i sure do) - they were given westernized names. 

80′s shirogane takashi became sven holgersson, because he was norwegian. same for 80′s lance. kurogane isamu became lance charles mcclain, because he wasn’t given an official nationality (that i remember) so they made him white (as opposed to japanese…). this name stuck because he is…very obviously White™ in other versions of voltron.

now that vld shiro is japanese, they changed it from sven (a norwegian name) to shiro (a japanese name). so vld shiro’s name is actually a #throwback as well as proper for his nationality. makes sense, right? so why are people that want the same for vld lance being thrown under the bus? why are we suddenly the bad guys?

latinx characters are all too often handed the short end of the stick, and made to seem bad/uncivilized/uneducated if they haven’t assimilated into western and/or american culture. why? cause that’s how people view latinx people irl. we’re sick of it tbh.

don’t let latinx representation be silent. don’t make it our job to have to clarify he is latinx. don’t let it be something that can simply be ignored if people think of him as “that white dude with a tan” because his name sounds white.

give proper representation.

give lance a cuban name.

Many of you have asked me about the meaning of the name spatziline. One day before class I was talking with @invisiblegerman about the new blog I wanted to create, and how I was having problems in finding a name. She’s German, so I asked her cute names in German lol. 

I don’t remember when or how but we started to talk about names of animals, then she mentioned spatzi (sparrow). I like sparrows and the name, SO I KNEW THAT WAS THE CHOSEN ONE. She told me to add “line” if I wanted the name to sound cuter…
AND THERE IT WAS: SPATZILINE (Little Sparrow) 

This was my first icon lol

In other words, it was @invisiblegerman‘s fault.

theory: “mamma mia!” (2008) and “kingsman: the secret service” (2014) take place in the same universe

my evidence? 

colin firth.

in “mamma mia!”, which is arguably set in the 90s, he plays:

  • an englishman named harry
  • whose last name is not known
  • who demonstrates an affinity for aliases (”harry headbanger”)
  • who lives in london
  • who works as a banker which sounds fake
  • isn’t “spontaneous”
  • is gay

in “kingsman: the secret service,” where the main story is arguably set in 2014, he plays:

  • an englishman named harry
  • whose last name is now revealed to be hart
  • who demonstrates a penchant for aliases (”galahad”)
  • who lives in london
  • who is actually a secret agent…which he has to lie about and tell people he’s some boring job like a banker
  • can’t afford to be spontaneous bc he’s a secret agent and if he doesn’t plan things out he will probably die
  • tells a random woman that he’s gay (among other things) (he’s implied to be lying but literally nothing in the film indicates that anything in the line where he says that is not true)

CONCLUSION: Harry from “Mamma Mia!” and Harry from “Kingsman: The Secret Service” are the same person. The opening scene (before it jumps to “17 years later”) of Kingsman takes place, at most, a few years apart from the events of “Mamma Mia!” Also, Harry Hart is gay. Thank you for your time. 

Elder Scrolls Lore: Names

I recently realized that I have been ignorant of the names of other races besides those of the Dark Elves/Dunmer and the Argonians/Saxhleel. I named characters as I wished, and looking back on them now, I realize the names I chose were pretty stereotypical and, frankly, rude in the world of Elder Scrolls.

For instance, I named my Khajiit character “Miranjri” which sounds Khajiit-like, but it’s not an actual name a Khajiit would have. In fact, I’m pretty sure that name is completely meaningless to the Khajiit.

So, as a present for my now 1,000 followers, I’m starting a series of posts about the lore-friendly rules to go by when naming your characters. Starting with the Khajiit, I’ll have a post for each race and I’ll link each post to this one as I go. The series will also be tagged #eslorenames. I hope you enjoy. :)

I’M W HEEZING THANKS FOR THIS HEAVENLY GIFT

Nicky at some point, possibly joking, possibly not, mentioning how damn disappointing it is that Neil and Andrew don’t have pet names for each other. Like, don’t they know that’s the ultimate height of affection?

And like Andrew thinks this over for two seconds and turns to Neil and says, completely deadpan, “what do you think, sweetheart?”

Neil doesn’t miss a beat when he says, “sounds like a great idea, darling.”

And so this starts positively the most terrifying thing the Foxes have ever seen. Neil and Andrew’s pet name war. Andrew pulls out Honey Bunny while they’re out for dinner one night and nearly causes Nicky to choke to death on his spaghetti, but Neil gets to drop Snookum in the middle of a team meeting and causes Wymack to go speechless.

It’s awful. Nicky has never heard somebody sound so close to committing murder while calling their boyfriend High King of my heart (Neil maintains he should get extra points for creativity on that one) and he is very, very, very sorry he ever brought it up but now it’s too late because Neil and Andrew think it’s hilarious and they will not stop.

  11. Sure, she’s a sarcastic son of a bitch, but she doesn’t deserve this shit
  12. I really think this counts as aunt abuse

I’m sick as balls, my fever is down but everything fucking hurts.. Sorry.

On the subject of names

As applying to various divine, spirit, etc. beings/kin.

(This is my personal view on the subject and no one else is required to accept it)

So… first off, a name seems to usually be what people try to figure out first when looking for information about themselves or about prior existences.  The name is an anchor point, something meaningful that represents your nature, that you can share with others to hopefully spark some recognition.

Now, there seems to be a lot of stress for a lot of people if they can’t figure out their name.

But… why would spirit creatures use True Names that were sound based?  Why not names consisting of frequencies of light?  Of non-syllabic whirs or clicks of sounds.  Of the background radio-wave static of various energy-forms?  Why would the languages of such beings be limited to sound?  It seems more likely that communication would occur through multiple mediums: light, sound, emotion, perhaps direct telepathic sendings.

So given that… finding “the right” name may not be as drastically important as it seems.  Why?  Because it is just a name.  It isn’t the full name, it doesn’t identify beyond any doubt.  It is simply a placeholder, something to associate to the energetic signature that was you, but that doesn’t completely explain you.

By associating a syllabic, sound-based name with yourself, though, it is easier to communicate with other beings who use such means of communication (i.e. humans/those who are currently human in form).  It doesn’t matter if a name is not strictly correct, if the association is made to your own energy, that will be accurate enough to use it.

So, find a name you like.  Find a name you’re comfortable with.  Find a name that you feel fits as closely to the energy of that form as possible.  That name will be good enough.

The Different Shades of You and Me: Flirt Alert

A/N: Hi guys, it’s been a while but, I think I’ve come up with something that you are going to enjoy. It’s a new series that I hope I can complete but, it’s open ended and has no continuing plot line, just a common theme which is the names. Each story is inspired by a shade of paint and each will be named for them. Now enough of my rambling, I hope you all like it.

Flirt Alert

It was a bright Saturday afternoon when Stiles and Lydia went out to the local coffee house. All around them were several high school and college students catching up on their work. The room smelled like fresh brewed coffee and it made Lydia’s stomach make a grueling sound.

Stiles looked at her from above his laptop screen as she clutched her stomach. When she noticed others staring, her face turned red and a sheepish grin crept on her face.

Lydia wasn’t stupid, however. She knew most of the staring girls weren’t distracted by her growling stomach. The boy sitting two feet in front of her was the apparent center of their attention. His focused eyes and dark hair that matched the very coffee they were drinking were hard to miss.

“Stop that,” she said suddenly.

The boy’s eyes traveled to hers again in confusion. “Stop what?”

Lydia rolled her eyes and he chuckled in response before returning to his note taking. She turned in her seat and lifted her bag which was hanging on the back of her chair.

The girl stuck her hand in the tote bag and groped around before wrapping her hand around the object she was looking for. Lydia retrieved her wallet from her bag and hung it back on her chair, trying to make sure it didn’t drag on the ground.

When she unzipped her wallet, Stiles looked up again. “You need some cash?” he asked before lifting his bum from the chair to reach his back pocket. He quickly pulled out his wallet, but only after Lydia had found a crisp five dollar bill.

“I’m okay, but thanks.”

Lydia stood from her chair and smoothed out the wrinkles in her green skirt. It fell a few inches above the knee, but it was long enough that she didn’t have to worry about her butt being exposed. Stiles didn’t have to worry either.

The line for the barista bar was long, but moved quickly. One of the baristas, Kira, was moving remarkably fast, preparing drink after drink.

At the register was an employee named Scott. Lydia could see him from the back of the line, which meant a lot considering her height of five foot three.

When Lydia reached the front of the line, Scott flashed a charming smile and asked, “Hi, my name is Scott and welcome to the Beacon Hills Coffeehouse how may I help you?”

Lydia stood on the tips of her toes to get a good look at everything in the display case. Breads, sandwiches, and  cookies came in different flavors and variations.

After a good fifteen seconds of contemplation, Lydia decided on a bottle of water and buttered croissant. “Name?” the boy asked.

“Lydia.”

Scott entered her total and she handed the five dollar bill to the boy. He smiled as he worked the cash register and returned the change to Lydia.

Before going to pick up her order, Lydia placed the two quarters in the tip jar and shoved the one dollar bill back in her wallet. “Thank you.” Scott beamed.

Lydia grabbed her water bottle and tapped her freshly painted fingernails on the marble counter as Kira called out several names.

Kira was about the same height as Lydia with short and straight black hair. Everyone had figured she was filled up with coffee herself by the way she was moving. It was only her and Scott but, she was doing the job of three more people.

“Lydia!” Kira shouted before placing the warm croissant in a paper bag and sliding it onto the counter.

Lydia picked up the brown bag and opened it to smell the warm pastry. She closed her eyes and relished in the pleasing scent.

As she made her way back to the table, she spotted a girl walking past Stiles. As she walked, her hand swiped across the side of his laptop. Stiles looked up at her and gave a friendly smile before picking up a note she dropped on his keyboard.

Before he could open it, Lydia had tucked herself back into her seat and was chugging her water. “What’s that?” Lydia asked not so innocently.

“Nothing. Just a phone number,” Stiles shrugged as he threw it in his backpack.
Lydia rolled her eyes in response as she began to devour her croissant.

Stiles felt her envy oozing from her ears. He grabbed her hand on the edge of the table. “It’s nothing okay. I can’t just throw it away when she’s watching.”

Lydia nodded and continued to eat her buttery breakfast. At one point Stiles tried to sneak a piece from her, but he didn’t have to. Lydia broke off a chunk and gave it to the boy voluntarily.

When she was finished, Lydia grabbed a napkin and wiped her mouth, accidentally smearing her lipstick along with the grease. Her reflection in her computer screen angered her as she searched for her lipstick in her bag.

“I’ll be right back,” she groaned as she trotted to the bathroom with her bag over her shoulder.

Lydia looked in the mirror as she cleaned the red streaks of makeup off of her face. Angrily she searched for her lipstick in her small makeup pouch, trying not to drop it.

When she finally felt a tube of lipstick, she read the name at the bottom and popped off the cap. The color, “Flirt Alert,” was just between red an orange, just like Lydia’s hair. It was one of her most favorite and boldest colors.

Using a paper towel, Lydia cleaned the edges of her lips and stuck her makeup back in her tote bag. She fixed her hair in the mirror before pushing the bathroom door open and walking back into the cafe.

When she entered the cafe, the strong scent of espresso that she had gotten used to flooded her senses once again. However, before she could sit down in her seat, she noticed another girl in her place.

The girl was a long haired brunette who was doing her hardest to get Stiles’ attention. He was trying his best to focus on his work without being rude and ignoring her attempts at a conversation.

As Lydia neared the table, the girl noticed and bid Stiles a farewell. He responded, but only looked up at her slightly.

Lydia sat back down in her warm seat and stared down Stiles from above her laptop screen. “What did she want?”

“She said we have AP Biology together and she wanted notes.”

“You don’t take AP Biology”

“Yeah, exactly,” Stiles chuckled.

Lydia was about to respond but she heard the girl and her friends giggling from across the room. They were all looking in Stiles’ direction, but he was painfully oblivious.

In response, Lydia stood and leaned over the table. In one swift motion, she grabbed Stiles shirt collar and pulled his lips to hers. The kiss surprised the boy, but when he got into it, it turned sloppy and hot.

When she was finished, Lydia sat back in her chair and continued working as the girls sat silent in their booth.

On the other side of the table, Stiles was trying to reevaluate his situation. Lydia looked up at him and laughed.

“What?” the boy asked.

Lydia gestured to her own lips before saying, “‘Flirt Alert’ looks good on you.”

Stiles’ face turned red as he found a napkin and wiped his girlfriend’s lipstick off of his face.
