object(ing)

hey object show community artists, especially those with ocs, listen the fuck up, this is a PSA.

i hope it’s not necessary to say this, but just in case;

can y’all promise not to lash out or accuse someone of stealing an oc when their object of choice for their oc is the same as your own?

in the roundabout 2-3 years i’ve been in this community, both deviantart and tumblr, i’ve seen:

  • two umbrellas
  • two tombstones
  • probably more than one notebooks
  • a lotta gay shit
  • two hourglasses
  • two gloves (well, one is a mitten but)
  • a shitload of gems
  • two plasma balls
  • fuck, four of my ocs have a same-object clone owned by four other people. fucking four. original object show oc-ing is hard.

it’s just like steven universe ocs in a way: you will inevitably, at least once, find two people with an oc that have the same theme or base, and yet are not completely similar. so please, can we all agree that we won’t have a problem with people with object ocs that are the same object as one of yours?

i know i can. *drops mic*

Why couldn’t Newt use ‘Accio’ to retrieve all his beasts?
‘Accio’ only works on inanimate objects. While people or creatures may be indirectly moved by ‘Accio-ing’ objects that they are wearing or holding, this carries all kinds of risks because of the likelihood of injury to the person or beast attached to an object travelling at close to the speed of light.

grazie: thank you
grazie mille: thank you very much (lit. a thousand graces/thanks)
mille grazie: same as above
grazie tante: thank you a lot (lit. many thanks)
tante grazie: same as above
mille volte grazie: one thousand times thanks
ti ringrazio: thank you

To thank someone for something you simply say:

grazie + per + noun: thank you + for + noun
ti ringrazio + per + noun: thank you + for + noun

  • grazie per il regalo (thanks for the gift)
  • grazie per gli auguri (thanks for the wishes)
  • grazie per la chiamata (thanks for the call)

To thank someone for doing something the construction is a little bit more complex and it involves the use of the past infinitive and usually the unstressed object personal pronouns.

grazie + per + past infinitive (+ unstressed object p. p.) + noun: thank you + for + verb-ing + object personal pronoun
ti ringrazio + per + past infinitive (+ unstressed object p. p.) + noun: thank you + for + verb-ing + object personal pronoun

  • grazie per avermi comprato il regalo (thanks for buying me the gift)
  • grazie per essere venuta (thanks for coming)
  • grazie per averci chiamati (thanks for calling us)

Note: it is a common mistake to use graze per and ti ringrazio per with a present infinitive.

Lets go! Tonight was the night. The night your dreams came true. It was finally the night you got to the EXO Concert! Like always, you slept in till the last minute. “It’s 8:00 PM already?!” you shouted as you grabbed your favorite EXO __1__ and put it on your __2__. You quickly ran out the door and headed for the concert.  When you arrived, everyone was already inside. You made your way to the front doors, but for some odd reason they were locked. “__3__”  you cursed under your breath as you searched for another entrance. You looked up and saw an open window. However, it was on the __4__ floor. Luckily, out of the corner of your eye, you spotted a __5__. You successfully used it to climb up the wall and managed to get through the window. “AHHHH it’s a  __6__,” cried a flamboyant voice. You looked up to see __7__ standing over you; he had a(n) __8__ held over his head ready to strike you down. “Wait no,” you pleaded, “I’m just a(n) __9__ fan and the doors were locked!” “Well why didn’t you say that in the first place?” he replied. “Come on!” He grabbed you by the __10__ and drug you down the hallway to another room.  When he opened the door, you were not expecting to see such a sight. __11__ was __12__ on a __13__. __14__ and __15__ were fighting with __16__. Somehow __17__ got rapped up in his own __18__. All while __19__ was covered in __20__. “Only you can fix this __21__. Without you, the concert will never be able to go on,” __7__ told you with a stern look on his face. "Some of our members have been cursed by the __22__ __23__, our worst enemy,” he explained. You quickly replied, “What must I do?!” He smirked and said, “Its simple… you must __24__ with ever single one of them!”  DuN Dun dunnnnn!!!!
