obscure word

I’m half-convinced that many Germans regard it as a point of national pride to have words for every conceivable emotion, and every time anyone anywhere asks “is there a word for [obscure emotional state]?”, the entire nation of Germany collectively invents one, edits their dictionaries so that it’s retroactively always existed, and says “yes, yes there is”.

What kind of story am I? A romance? A tragedy? Or just another cautionary tale?

;^) fine dwarven crafts are my SPECIALTY. @ that one person who requested Varric, you’re welcome. Bianca and Varric’s looks here were based off the bits with them from Until We Sleep, though I modified her hair just a bit.

Drawing Soulmate AU

Based on the AU where anything your soulmate draws on their skin shows up on your skin too

  • Percy draws on his arms when he’s bored in class
  • Which is nearly all the time
  • Percy hopes his soulmate likes the pictures he draws
  • Annabeth really likes seeing the random doodles show up
  • They help her feel not as alone after she runs away
  • Sometimes they write little messages to each other
  • When Percy shows up at Camp he had a few random words written in Greek
  • While Annabeth is giving him ambrosia she notices the same words on her arms and gets really excited
  • She writes, “You drool in your sleep” on her arm and sure enough it shows up on Percy’s
  • When he wakes up he’s really confused but then he sees Annabeth and they both get really excited because they found each other at twelve.
  • Piper doesn’t write on her arms a lot since it washes off in water pretty easily (and it’s only on your soulmate’s arm as long as it’s on yours)
  • Then Piper gets a mostly waterproof marker and writes on her arm all. the. time.
  • Jason is thrilled when he gets more messages all of a sudden
  • When Jason gets the tattoo on his arm Piper is really surprised since they’re only four
  • The tattoo on her arm fades overtime but it’s never completely gone
  • Frank doesn’t get any marks on his arm for a really long time
  • But the first one he gets is a really amazing drawing of horse on his left arm
  • As soon as that shows up he writes “Hi” in really big letters across his hand
  • Hazel is really excited when the word “Hi” shows up
  • For a while they communicate through writings
  • Every time one of them asks where the other lives they always say “it’s complicated” since they’re not sure how to explain New Rome
  • One day they’re both on guard duty when Frank asks what Hazel’s doing and she says she’s drawing a picture for her soulmate
  • A small cluster of yellow flowers that’s a few feet away
  • Slowly, as she’s drawing, the lines begin to show up on Franks arm
  • He gets really excited but he wants to let her finish the drawing first so he waits before asking to borrow her pen
  • Then, in huge letters, he rights “Hi” on his hand
  • Hazel looks over in realization and they both get supper excited and talk for hours
  • Leo is cracking up during Mark of Athena when they write “Hot Stuff” and “All the Ladies luv Leo”
  • He hopes his soulmate is having a good laugh too
  • He’s never gotten any writings back but he always convinces himself that his soulmate is out there somewhere
  • Calypso feels bad about not being able to respond but she’s glad her soulmate keeps sending messages
  • Will writes notes for himself all the time on his arm
  • Sometimes they’re things like “Clean up cabin” or “Restock Band-Aids”
  • But other times they’re really obscure things like “Look up Sphenopalatine Ganglioneuralgia”
  • Nico can’t figure out if his soulmate just really likes words or if they want to be a doctor or something similar since they tend to be medical related
  • Nico usually writes what the word means on his arm and Will will tell him if he got it right
  • Nico writes phrases in Italian
  • They love the game they have going of looking up obscure medical words and translating Italian
  • When Nico shows up at camp he goes to Will and says, “Hey, you know medical words, can you tell me what this means?”
  • And Will gets really excited and says what he just translated from Italian
  • And they’re both so happy because they finally found each other

Write a story about anything where the vocabulary begins with the level of a kindergartener and ends with an almost incomprehensibly high level of smart-sounding and obscure words.

~The Signs & Obscure Words~

Aries~ onism (n.) ~ the frustration of being stuck in just one body that inhabits only one place at a time; possessing the ability to live many unique lives, but limited to this one.

Taurus~ pauciloquent (adj.) ~ one who utters few words but offers great depths; divulging the essence of one’s thoughts without superfluous speech.

Gemini~ cosmogyral (adj.) ~ whirling around the universe; spiraling through the galaxies in a playful freefall.

Cancer~ quaintrelle (n.) ~ one who emphasizes a life of passion, expressed through personal style, leisurely pastimes, charm, and cultivation of life’s pleasures.

Leo~ coruscate (v.) ~ to reflect brilliantly; to sparkle, glimmer, or gleam; to have a flashy or showy technique or style.

Virgo~ sapiosexual (n.) ~ one who is attracted to intelligence in others; one who falls in love with the beauty of the human mind.

Libra~ aesthete (n.) ~ a person with a special appreciation for art, beauty, & aesthetics; who takes time to set and enjoy a particular mood.

Scorpio~ opia (n.) ~ the intensity of looking someone in the eye who is staring straight back into you, their eyes glittering and bottomless, which can leave you feeling vulnerable.

Sagittarius~ degrassé (adj.) ~ simultaneously entranced and unsettled by the vastness of the universe, causing a desire for both reverence and wanderlust.

Capricorn~ sprezzatura (n.) ~ the ability to make one’s actions seem effortless, to carefully and cleverly hide suffering, to disguise one’s true desire, feeling, or meaning, either to help others or protect oneself.

Aquarius~ ambeddo (n.) ~ a melancholic trance in which you become absorbed in sensory details— clouds of cream swirling in your coffee, drops of dew on the window— reawakening awareness of the haunting, ephemeral beauty of life.

Pisces~ nefelibata (n.) ~ “cloudwalker”; one who lives in the clouds of their own imagination or dreams, or one who does not obey the conventions of art, literature, or society.

A guide to pretending you speak Tagalog/Filipino

1. Add “’di ba?” (right?/innit?) to the end of your sentences.

2. Replace “really”/”very” with “talagang” or the question “Really?” with “talaga.”

3. Sprinkle a dash of “kasi” (because, or the “that’s why” that you add to the end of a sentence instead of saying “because.”)

You didn’t ask for directions, that’s why kasi.


4. Use Google Translate to find the most obscure word for what you’re trying to say. Deep Tagalog points.

You’re hair is so marilag and maluwalhati today.

What thunder?

anonymous asked:

You look up the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows online, print out every page, and read a few definitions aloud in the Hawkes Hall lending library after dark, to no one in particular. After a while a silent, silent boy shows up, points to the papers with one gauze-wrapped hand, and asks, "May I have these?" It's regular old talking but it doesn't break the sense that he is silent in some fundamental sense. You smile, because you were expecting this, and say, "For a price."

Pool Party (Eggsy Unwin Imagine)

A/N: Hi! Sorry this is so short, I had an exam this morning and things have been a bit crazy but I’m going to be writing like mad now! Hope you enjoy :D ALSO I’m considering expanding this blog to write about a few more characters - Bucky Barnes mainly - what would you guys think?

“Eggsy Unwin, if you don’t put me down -” The rest of your words were obscured by the water, as your boyfriend dropped you unceremoniously into the pool. After a moment of floundering, you pulled yourself up, pushing the wet hair out of your eyes and glaring at the boy in front of you.

I was telling my sister that some academics go out of their way to use long and obscure words to seem elitist and she was like “what’s elitist” and I was like “when you think you’re better than everyone else” and she was like “so like using the word elitist?”

anonymous asked:

Hello! I was wondering if you could do the paladins that their s/o can speak other languages. For example, I can speak french, so whenever I get frustrated, I slip a "merde!" or two out of habit.

A/N: of course anon! Sorry we haven’t been too active we’re working on getting to requests. Languages sure are the coolest thing! (so envious of polyglots) Anyways I kept the language unspecific to keep it relatable (also I barely know any other languages outside of English). I also took some liberties with the languages in-universe seeing as all the the aliens speak English :,D

Shiro

  • He finds the fact you can speak multiple languages so cool
  • He found a new appreciation after being held captive by the Galra
  • So many of the other prisoners would revert to their native languages, talking anxiously to each other
  • It really reminded him of how alone he felt
  • So he’s even more doubly happy to be with you (even if he can’t understand much, at least he knows it’s from home)
  • Whenever you accidentally slip in words from other languages you always get a bit embarrassed (but Shiro finds it adorable)

Hunk

  • He loves it
  • He likes quizzing you on foreign foods and trying to get you to guess their origin (“Hunk I’ve told you already I don’t speak that. It’s from space!”)
  • A hobby of yours is you getting the most obscure words and getting him to try pronounce them
  • Hilarity ensues
  • It’s all a bit silly and he always acts so goofy (but at least he’s your goof)

Pidge

  • Linguists is honestly one of their favorite things
  • Other than computer coding they don’t know many other languages and they find it so cool you know multiple
  • “Like you use that to actually talk to other human beings? It’s so fascinating to think how all over the Earth, humans developed different syllables into all these different words and grammar patterns to have complicated meanings and— ”
  • Summary: it’s hella cool
  • The two of you also bond over learning little tidbits from other languages from the galaxy (trying to decipher Altean was equally painful and exhilarating)

Keith

  • Even if he’s not one to openly lavish upon compliments, he can’t help but give a smile whenever you can use your languages to help out
  • “You were pretty amazing back there [name]”
  • When no one else is looking, he asks you for study tips
  • The side of him that never quite left behind kiddy spy games finds being bilingual pretty darn cool (and useful)
  • He mostly uses it as an excuse to have you to himself though
  • “I saw Lance looking at you— remember, you’re mine. Also how do I pronounce this again?”

Lance

  • Takes every opportunity to remind you how amazing you are
  • Specifically learns phrases from other languages you know just to try recreate english pick up lines
  • It usually goes terribly wrong
