Linguistics in DGM

So I know I’ve seen it said somewhere that the exorcists would probably speak multiple languages (and by extension so would… pretty much everyone in the Order tbh).

I imagine it’s a bit of a headache if you’re a newcomer. The Order doesn’t really seem to think too much about its members unless they’re super important, after all, so I doubt they’d provide much by way of lessons.

So you get to the European headquarters and you’re just immediately bombarded with hundreds of languages. One man is shouting at another in German. A woman walks by, greeting you in Greek. And maybe you speak Spanish, but you’re not from Spain; you just transferred over from the North American branch and you can’t decide if the man speaking to you is using idioms from other languages or if that’s just slang in Spain or, hell, if it’s a slang term exclusive to the Order itself because the Order is just a huge blend of languages swirling together, so that could happen.

Please give me Lenalee speaking German or Russian—you know, one of those languages perceived as intimidating. Really, she’s being perfectly friendly, but you don’t understand what’s being said. Trust me, there’s nothing more intimidating than your German-speaking relative bellowing how pretty you are in German and you not understanding (although I highly doubt Lenalee’s going to be bellowing in German).

Please give me Allen trying to fluster some poor schmuck in a game so he just switches languages and starts speaking one of the Latin languages like Italian and it works because of course it does. It’s Allen for crying out loud. When that boy wants to charm you, he is going to charm you—even if it’s in another language.

And you can generally tell how long someone has been at the Order by how many languages they speak or even how garbled their accent is from picking up so many other different accents.

But wait, what about the Clan? Do we think about them? There’s literally thousands of years of memory stored there, guys. You can bet they speak lots of languages.

Sitting in on a dinner with the family might be fun; they might start speaking some ancient languages completely unknown to the world. Or maybe Bondomu starts shouting in an obscure, old dialect of Japanese.

Tyki answers in the same dialect and then looks confused because he most certainly doesn’t even know Japanese in the first place but Wisely just tells him that yes, that is a thing now.

But sometimes, sometimes when things get really serious, Adam will start speaking Hebrew and everyone will get very, very quiet, because that’s the language of the original scripture—Adam is speaking of the past, and their hearts ache when they think of what happened to them, what the Innocence did.

dgm au where Yu manages to calm Alma down after he kills all the scientists. Alma gets taken to the North American branch and Yu gets sent to their main branch in England bc nobody is sure how they’re gonna handle being together. Yu is the one that sends the first letter. A simple “Alma, I miss you. -Yu” and that starts the whole pen pal thing. Yu knows Alma worries about his sullen personality and his inability to make friends so he tends to write about all the little moments with everybody, like eating lunch with Lavi and punching Allen in the nose. Alma writes about his friends in the NA branch too and about all the things he’s learned out there.

When Alma finally gets clearance to visit, Yu’s restless for weeks. Restless bc Alma’s on a ship in the middle of the sea, and what if it sinks? Restless also bc he’s not sure how much Alma has grown and if he looks really different and what if Alma doesn’t like his long hair?

He worries himself sick, mainly, but it all dissolves the moment he sees Alma. He can’t breathe but the knot in his belly has untangled. Alma runs to him and practically jumps into his arms, and at that, Yu can breathe again.

They’re inseparable, of course, even if Alma is way too good at embarrassing Yu. Like he meets Lavi and is like “Oh, Yu said you’re good at braiding his hair! Will you teach me?” and to Allen he says something like “Yu feels sorry for you because you’re cursed but I like you!” 

and mainly I just really want Yu and Alma to be happy together

Piers Nivans

Piers Nivans is a 26-year-old BSAA operative working for its North American Branch. Chris Redfield is his commanding officer.

His hand-eye coordination and concentration skills are without peer, making him the BSAA’s top-ranking sniper. He can react quickly to the changing conditions on a battlefield, and, as such, he will usually find a way to complete his mission in spite of any adverse conditions.

A serious and determined man in battle, he still has time to offer a kind word for his fellow soldiers. It is these qualities that cause his C.O. to comment that the future of the BSAA rests on the shoulders of men like him.

Nivans himself prefers not to think of his team as subordinates, but as members of a big family. He believes that the strength of the BSAA hinges on the bonds of all its agents.

He holds Captain Redfield in the highest respect, and Captain Redfield trusts him implicitly. Piers took over the team after Chris went missing. Below is a note from a high-ranking BSAA officer, detailing Piers’ situation during this time.

It’s been about a month since Piers took over command of Alpha team and he’s doing an excellent job. He’s not as strong a leader as Chris was, but he’s definitely up to standards. I wouldn’t mind making him Alpha team’s permanent captain, but I think he would rather see Chris return for the job. He really looks up to him. Probably feels like the BSAA isn’t the same without him.

Let’s hope our agents in eastern Europe find something on him.

Piers’ File

All the men in Piers Nivans’ family have been in the military, going all the way back to his great-grandfather. For as long as he could remember, Piers wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps.

He graduated at the top of his class from an elite military academy, where he was highly recognized for his skills as a sniper. Following graduation, he joined the army’s Special Forces. Not long after joining the Special Forces, he became disillusioned.

While he continued to participate in his drills without a hitch, he yearned for some greater calling, a reason for all this training. In 2010, he found that calling when Chris Redfield, impressed with Piers’ sniper skills, asked him to join the BSAA.

Piers was impressed with the way Chris ran Alpha Team; he treated them like a family and not like expendable soldiers. Chris, for his part, knew he couldn’t be a field agent forever, which is why he recruited Piers. Chris believes the future of the BSAA lies with talented individuals like Piers, and Piers, for his part, now has a cause worth fighting for.

Piers spoke to some of those under him regarding Chris about a year ago. Below is a memo written by one of them who seemed to take great interest in what Piers had to say.

Piers talked the other day about Chris Redfield, what the man went up against when he was my age. I gotta say, it’s pretty crazy.

When Chris was 25, he was involved in the famous Mansion Incident. He went up against B.O.W.s before they were even called B.O.W.s, and lived! Just that alone is awesome enough. But then 3 months after, he goes on a solo mission to search for his sister at Rockfort Island, which was run by Umbrella. He ran into monsters made from a new virus and even went up against Albert Wesker.

I don’t think I could ever handle all that he did at this point in my life. He is one hell of a guy. A legend, even!

I’d want to be just like him. I just don’t know if I really got what it takes.

J’avo Mutations

Piers,

After the C-Virus turns an infected human into a J'avo, the host will continue to mutate, with the mutation usually occurring in a specific section of its body.
When a host’s body is damaged, the regenerative properties of the C-Virus will attempt to repair the damage. The repairs replace the normal human tissue with chitinous, insect-like appendages. In some cases, the repairs take on a utilitarian purpose, replacing arms with scythe- or shield-like appendages.
Thanks for the sample of the new mutation. We’ve already started poking at it to see what makes it tick. It’s got all of us here pretty excited, actually.

We’re calling those infected with the C-Virus J'avo, which is a Serbian word for “demon.” We’re also using words from the Serbian language to name any mutation variants that come about. For example, J'avo with sickle-like arms are called Ruka-Srp. Ruka means “arm” and Srp means “sickle.” J'avo with moth-like wings for legs are called Noga-Let, where Noga means “leg” and Let means “flight.” Serbian sounds pretty great for these creatures, don’t you think?

I know you guys out there in the field will probably start using codenames that are easier to remember and make more sense, but don’t forget, if a reporter ever asks you “What was that thing with the claw?”, don’t say it was a Weed Whacker!

Resident Evil 6 Files

Chris Redfield

Chris Redfield is a 39-year-old BSAA operative working for its North American Branch. He was the leader of Alpha Team until he suffered post-traumatic amnesia and wound up a belligerent drunk in the underbelly of eastern Europe.

Around this time, a biohazard outbreak in China shocks the world. Piers Nivans, his teammate on Alpha, finds Chris and convinces him to resume his leadership role in the BSAA. Despite his memory loss, Chris retains the fortitude and leadership skills that make him one of the BSAA’s top agents.

Below is a transcript of a communication sent from BSAA North America to Piers.

This is headquarters. Nivans, are you listening? There’s been a bioterrorist attack in America and China. We don’t have a lot of intel on the situation yet, but the U.S. government is denying our assistance on their front, so we need the alpha team to take care of the situation in China. We’ve got reports of J'avo-like B.O.W.s which your team has had experience with before.

We also heard that you’ve run into Chris Redfield, so if you can, take him with you to Lanshiang. He could be a big help.

Chris’ Amnesia

Chris Redfield suffered post-traumatic amnesia after he and his team were caught in a trap sprung by Ada Wong in the Republic of Edonia. Most of his team died, and an unconscious Chris was brought to a local hospital.

Upon waking up, Chris had no recollection of who he was or what had occurred, but his mind was wracked by an overwhelming and inexplicable guilt. Chris determined to run away, and he left the hospital before anyone could check in on him.

Until Piers Nivans and the BSAA found him, Chris lived as a moody and violent drunk, hoping that he could numb himself to the pain of what happened that fateful day.

Below is a statement made by a female bartender working at the bar Chris visited regularly during his drunken stupor in eastern Europe. She was questioned by the BSAA.

He started coming around here about five months ago.

We asked who he was, but he said he didn’t even remember, so we just started calling him “the stray dog.” More like a bear than a dog though, from the looks of him. He’s always real depressed looking, rude, never good at paying for all the booze he drinks–pretty much the worst customer we’ve got here. Oh, and I heard that he makes his money by doing some kind of bodyguard work, which doesn’t surprise me. Uses that money to drink and pay for his hotels.

So, what? Is he in some kind of trouble or something? Ha ha. I knew someone would be after him eventually.

Chris’ File

Chris Redfield began his military career as a pilot in the United States Air Force. His unwillingness to compromise brought him into direct conflict with superiors. Unable to settle these differences, Chris retired from the Air Force.

He was then scouted by Raccoon City’s special forces (S.T.A.R.S.) because of his superior fighting skills and pilot qualifications. After what came to be known as the Mansion Incident on the outskirts of Raccoon City, Chris set off on his own to stop Umbrella and make the world aware of the threat of bioweapons.

Following Umbrella’s dissolution in 2003, Chris decided to join the BSAA and continue the fight. This brought him to Africa in 2009, and into direct conflict with his former boss, Albert Wesker. Chris killed Albert during the operation, and he was finally able to put to rest all the ghosts of Umbrella and Raccoon City.

In 2012, during an operation in Edonia, all his BSAA soldiers except for Piers Nivans are turned into B.O.W.s. Chris suffered from head trauma that led to amnesia, and it wasn’t until six months later that Piers was able to find him again. Chris was a large part of the BSAA, and it was a big shock to the organization when he was reported missing from the hospital. The search for him was led by Piers and all branches of the BSAA helped in any way they could.

Below is an e-mail sent from the West African Branch to Piers during this time.

Recipient: Piers Nivans, BSAA North American Branch
Sender: Sheva Alomar, BSAA West African Branch

I was very sad to hear of Chris’ recent disappearance. He was such a large part of the BSAA, and he was a very important person to me, as well. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help. The BSAA West African Branch is always here for your support.

Chris and Albert

Chris Redfield and Albert Wesker, Jake Muller’s father, have a history that goes back to when the two were on the same S.T.A.R.S. team and encountered the world’s first known B.O.W.s during the Mansion Incident in 1998.

It turned out later that this “accident” was engineered by Albert, who was working for Umbrella. As a result, Chris lost many good friends and colleagues. Chris set out to stop Umbrella and prevent the spread of B.O.W.s, which led him into conflict with Albert on numerous occasions.

In 2009, Chris found himself in Africa as he attempted to stop Albert from murdering a majority of the planet’s population. During their battle, Albert mutated himself into a B.O.W., but he was killed thanks to Chris and his partner, Sheva Alomar. Thankfully, Albert’s plans of global genocide were never realized.

Chris’ speaks of his feelings during this time below.

Taking care of Wesker was definitely a big turning-point. I realized what I had been fighting for. But then again, at the same time, defeating a monster like him really made me feel like I had accomplished all I had set out to do.

I have no intention of giving up the fight. But I can’t do it alone. There may come a time when someone like Wesker comes around again, and a younger generation will need to carry the torch. So, I’m going to go back to working in a team and teach the younger generation what they need to know. The BSAA will need them.

Hi hun! Welcome, welcome to the Overwatch writing community!!! Now, I'd like a really nice Genji x Reader. The theme is.... -drumroll- office AU!!!! If you don't mind that is~ thank you~ I hope you have fun!

Thank you! Im glad to be here. ( andI never mind writing Genji) I hope you enjoy it. I’m putting it under a read more because it got long.

(I swear this is an office au even though half of it doesn’t take place in an office)


“Come on, lighten up a little!” your friend told you as you walked to the bar.

“I have to be at work tomorrow,” you reply. “My boss is coming back from two weeks vacation and the last thing I need to be dealing with is a hangover.”

“So only have one drink! You at least have to stay long enough to meet my new girlfriend.”

“Okay, okay,” you agree. “I’ll stay long enough to meet the girlfriend.”

You reached the bar and found out that the girlfriend was running a few minutes late, so you decided to get a drink while you waited. For some reason you decided to get a margarita, even though you knew the tequila wasn’t a good idea. Tequila is never a good idea, you thought, but you took a sip anyways.

“You come here often?” You heard a smooth and slightly accented voice ask. Turning you saw a good looking man standing next to you. He had a dazzling smile, good taste in clothing, and… was that green hair?

“Every so often,” you told him, smiling. The hair was a little jarring at first glance, but somehow it looked pretty good on him. “What about you?”

“My first time,” he told you. “I’m Genji, by the way,” he held out his hand to shake yours.

“I’m (Name),” you said taking it. But instead of shaking your hand he brought it up to his lips and placed a soft kiss on your knuckles.

“A pleasure to meet you, (Name). Can I buy you a drink?”

“I already have one,” you motioned to the glass in your other hand. “And I was only planning on one drink tonight.”

“But if you let me buy you another, I’ll have time to actually learn your last name, oh beautiful (Name).”

“Keep calling me beautiful and I might let you,” you teased him.

And so the night went on, the two of you teased each other back and forth, both of you even leaving the bar to have dinner with your friend and their new girlfriend. Genji was smart, funny, and charming; you couldn’t help but feel small butterflies take flight in your stomach when he looked at you. After dinner the two of you walked outside, and you hailed a taxi.

“I take it this is goodnight?” he asked you.

“I’m afraid so. It was wonderful to meet you, Genji,” you said.

“You know, it doesn’t have to be,” he told you, a coy smile appearing on his lips. You knew immediately what he was proposing. His lips did look soft, and his body strong and lean. You wondered briefly what a night might be like with him. But you only allowed yourself a moment to wonder; you knew yourself to well. You had a tendency to become attached far too easily and a night with this man would only end up hurting your heart.

“I’m sorry, but not tonight.”

He took it in stride, giving you a sad smile. “You break my heart, (Name). Whatever shall I do?”

“Go to sleep,” you told him. “It will hurt less in the morning.”

“If you say so,” he winked at you. “Perhaps I will see you again?”

“Perhaps you might,” you replied before getting into the taxi. He closed the door behind you and watched as the vehicle pulled away from the curb.

You gave a disappointed sigh. Maybe you should have… No. It was better this way, you told yourself. You had to keep repeating it, trying to convince yourself that it was true.


You arrived at work the next day at your usual time. You strode in through the doors and said hello to the front receptionist, Margaret.

“Oh, (Name), before you go up. Mr. Smith isn’t in today.”

“Did he extend his vacation?” you asked, slightly confused. Your boss, Mr. Smith, was the most punctual person you had ever met.

“No, he had a heart attack a two days ago,” Margaret told you.

“What?” this had to be some kind of joke. Sure Mr. Smith was older, but he wasn’t that old and he was in good health; how could he have a heart attack?

“I know it’s shocking. I only found out this morning. The company sent someone to take his place, temporarily, while he recovers.

“Who did they send?” you asked, your knees suddenly feeling weak.

“They sent president Shimada’s younger brother. I don’t know his first name. But apparently he’s a bit of a playboy, I don’t know why they sent him. But I do know you’ll be acting as his secretary while he’s here, since you know what plans Mr. Smith had in the works and stuff.”

“Alright, thanks for the head’s up, Margaret.” You took the elevator up to the 52nd floor where your office was, as well as Mr. Smith’s - Mr. Shimada’s for now.

As you rode the elevator up, you wondered about your new boss. You knew the company’s president, Hanzo Shimada, lived in the Japan and that’s where the company’s headquarters were. Mr. Smith was the director of the North American branch, one of their largest branches, so it made sense to send the president’s brother.

You arrived at your office to find the Vice President of the branch, Mr. Jones, was there and waiting for you. Actually, he was waiting for Mr. Shimada, since your office led into his. You waited together, making small talk. You asked about Mr. Smiths health, and learned that he should return in six months, if not sooner.

It wasn’t long before there a knock on the door and in stepped your new boss. It took you a moment to process what you were seeing. This couldn’t be your boss, the man was Genji, from the night before. He was wearing a crisp suit and dark green tie that complemented his bright hair.

“Mr. Jones,” he was stepping forward to shake the man’s hand when he caught sight of you. Confusion appeared on his face for a moment but was quickly replaced by his easygoing smile. “And may ask for an introduction to this lovely looking person?”

“This is (Name). They’re Mt. Smith’s secretary and will also be yours while you’re with us,” Mr. Jones introduced you, unaware that the two of you had met before. “(Name), this is Mr. Genji Shimada.” You offered your hand for a shake, but he repeated his action from last night and kissed it instead.

“A pleasure to meet you (Name),” he said smirking at you. Mr. Jones appeared unaware of his flirtatious manner and continued to speak, saying that he’d leave him to settle into his new office, but he’d see him at the staff meeting that was being held with the different department managers at 10. With that, Mr. Jones left, leaving you with your new boss. A man you had been drinking with and flirting outrageously with the night before.

“Well, this is a pleasant surprise,” he said. “I was trying to figure out how to find you again, since I didn’t get your number last night, but look! I’ll be seeing you everyday, I’m very excited.”

“Mr. Shimada-”

“Please, (Name). Call me Genji. It is my name.”

“That’s not a very professional thing to do,” you replied seriously.

“Do I look like the a very professional person to you?” he said, winking at you.


So began five months of working for Genji Shimada. He was charming and flirted outrageously with you, but only when no one else was around. If someone else was around he was the picture of professionalism, except sometimes he’d drop a perfectly innocent sounding phrase, but he’d wink at you so you knew he meant it in a way that was anything but innocent. It became a game, bantering back and forth, him flirting and you preening like you weren’t flirting back at least a little.

One day he popped his head out of his office and said, “(Name? Would you might clearing my schedule for lunch tomorrow? An old friend is in town and he wants to discuss a business deal. I’d also appreciate it if you came as well. Two sets of eyes and ears are better than one. Hands too, if you know what I mean,” he said the last sentence with a smirk and and a smile, pulling hi head back in after he’d wormed an agreement out of you.

The next day you found yourself walking into a nice cafe to meet his friend. The friend’s name was Jesse McCree, who Genji said was some kind of Texan oilman. It was hard not to think of him as ‘Genji’, although you were careful to call him ‘Mr. Shimada’. You knew he’d never let you live it down if he called you by his first name.

The two of you sat down and waited, chatting idly while he continued to subtly flirt with you. 15 Minutes passed quickly and there was no sign of his friend. You nearly jumped out of your seat as Genji’s phone rang. He picked it up with a,”McCree? Where are y-,” You could dimly hear a voice on the other end interrupt him. He listened for a few moments before replying, “I see. Thank you for informing me.” He hung up the phone and turned to you, “I’m afraid Jesse isn’t going to be able to make it to lunch, he’d like to reschedule for another time. But since we’re here, you and I should enjoy lunch.” The two of you ordered and continued to chat throughout the meal. Talking to him was easy, but you had to watch yourself so you didn’t get too flirty. He’s still your boss after all.

As the two of you left the cafe, he turned to you, (Name), there’s something I wanted to speak to you about.”

“What is it?” You were a little put off by his change in tone, he suddenly sounded very serious.

“It’s about Mr. Smith. He should be returning to work in a week or two, provided no more harm comes to him.”

“That’s wonderful! That… that means you’ll be leaving, doesn’t it?” You felt hollow at the the thought of him leaving and we’re exactly sure why. It couldn’t be that you had, feelings for him or anything. But you couldn’t deny the thought of him leaving saddened you.

“I’m afraid so,” was his answer. You walked a few more minutes in silence until you found yourselves in the elevator headed up to your offices. “(Name), I’ve enjoyed your company these past few months, and I’m afraid I’ve done a poor job at conveying that.”

“You don’t need to worry yourself about that, Mr Shimada. You’ve done a fine job making me feel appreciated.” As soon as the the words left your mouth, you winced internally. That was exactly the kind of sentence he’d take and see to make some outrageously flirty remark. But surprisingly, he passed up the opportunity.

“You misunderstand me, I don’t mean as a secretary. I mean as a person and a friend. And, dare I hope, more than a friend? I’ve been saying things to you the entire time I’ve been here, but know I realize that I don’t think you knew I meant them”

Your brain stopped working. He sounded sincere, far more sincere than you had ever heard him sound. What could he mean by ‘more than a friend’? And was he referring to all his flirty comments, did he actually mean them? “What do you mean, Genji?” You didn’t even realize you were saying his name until after you’d said it. He couldn’t possibly be saying what you thought he was saying.

“I mean, that even after Mr. Smith returns, I’d like stay in the city and get to know you on a more… personal level.” A hint of nervousness crept into his voice, something you’d never heard before.

“You’re saying that you-”

“That I like you, yes. That I want to be your boyfriend, yes. And that I’ve actually meant my flirting all along, yes!” His hands had grabbed your shoulders and he was gazing longingly into your eyes, like he was searching for the answer you couldn’t find the words to.

Instead, you reached up to put your hands on either side of his face and pull him down into a kiss. The first kiss was sweet and simple, it felt so good to kiss him. His lips were just as soft as you thought they’d be. A second kiss followed the second and this one held passion. Both of you had kept your feelings inside for far too long. Breathless, you pulled away to look at him.

“I take it you feel the same?” he asked with a smirk and wink.


So I feel like genji may have a bit out ooc here. I wrote like playboy genji except for at the end, but I feel like it’s all a little rushed, I’m sorry about that.

[EPISODE] 89. Usagi and the Girls’ Resolve! Prelude to a New Battle.

Series: Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon R

Kana: うさぎ達の決意! 新しき戦いの序曲
Romaji: Usagi tachi no Ketsui! Atarashiki Tatakai no Jokyoku

Original Air Date: March 12, 1994

Director: Kounosuke Uda
Writer: Katsuyuki Sumisawa
Animation Director: N/A

Plot: The Sailor Senshi discuss the new upcoming story as well as the possibility of selecting a new main character.

TRIVIA

  • This was one of several clip shows in the series. The R movie was accompanied by the Make Up! Sailor Senshi short, and the SuperS television special contained a segment that heavily relied on past footage.
  • Only the voice actors for the five main Sailor Senshi were credited here. This was the first time that Keiko Han (Luna, Queen Beryl) was not listed in the credits.
  • All of the opening animation sequences produced so far were shown at the beginning through a split screen method.
  • This was the last episode to be dubbed by DiC. Toei’s North American branch, Cloverway, would handle the dubs for S and SuperS.

FIRSTS

  • Professor Souichi Tomoe, Kaolinite, Sailor Uranus, and Sailor Neptune all made their first appearances in this episode. They would not be officially introduced until later, though.
  • A daimon was first seen here, but it was not identified as such.

LASTS

  • This was the last episode to feature the original version of “Moonlight Densetsu,” performed by DALI, as the theme song. The new mix, recorded by Moon Lips, would be used in S and SuperS.
  • Ail and An were last mentioned here.

OTHER VERSIONS

  • DiC’s English dub (titled “Follow the Leader”):

    Sailor Venus referred to the herself and the others as Sailor Soldiers rather than as Sailor Scouts.

    Despite never meeting him in the modern age, Makoto/Lita commented that Jadeite/Jedite was a tough enemy.

    Rei/Raye said that she became a Sailor Senshi/Sailor Scout before Ami/Amy.

    In the original dub of episode 62 (”Sailor Mercury Moving On?”), a seat belt was drawn on Amy as she sat in Mamoru/Darien’s car. That alteration was left out of the scene’s reuse here.

    While episode 42 was omitted altogether from DiC’s adaptation, the part where Sailor V kicked the youma in London was left intact.
