peopley

Okay buckle the fuck up because I’m pissed

Romani people exist okay? We exist, and we experience racism, and prejudice and fucking casual hatred and erasure and constant, never ending microaggressions and if you are a white activist I can almost guarantee you are not fucking helping.

Stop giving the total number of Holocaust victims as six million, it was nearly twice that. Better yet, just stop using the Holocaust as a rhetorical device in general if you’re not Jewish or Romani.

But okay fine you wanna talk about the Holocaust? Lets talk about the fucking Holocaust.

Did you know entire dialects of our language went extinct because everyone who spoke them was killed?

Did you know Romani children were the favorites of the Nazi scientists for experimentation because they were easily bribed with chocolate and toys? Josef Mengele (May he burn in every afterlife) sewed two four-year-old twin children together, back to back. Their names were Guido and Ida and their own mother had to kill them out of mercy.

Non-romani and non-Jewish people need to stop comparing what is happening to the Holocaust because guess what? You don’t understand our fear. You don’t understand how we’re feeling. I watched the fucking president sign an order to ban Muslim people from entering this country and now I cant stop having nightmares about brown triangles and fucking gas chambers.

and you do not know how this feels, you do not understand the visceral cultural memory that exists in ever Jewish and Romani person; I guarantee you do not get it.

In Mississippi you can still fine a Rom for moving to your county. Texas law refer to Prostitutes, Vagabonds and G*psies in the same breath and fines all of them $500 for existing in public. In Pennsylvania it is illegal to even be Romani without a license. A license to exist, a license to be allowed to be alive. And that’s just in the U.S, where I live. Romani children in Europe still go to segregated fucking schools

And I don’t have an Instagram anymore because I was sick of seeing white girls appropriate my culture and call themselves g*psies as if it wasn’t a slur, insisting that they just love my culture so much and yet none of them are willing to defend me against the Nazis who want to finish killing my people

I wonder if my survival will be predicated on how happy I can keep my racist white family. I wonder if they will be the ones who turn me in. I look at every white person around me insisting that we need to give Trump a chance and all can see is their backs turning on me when everything goes to shit.

I cant even go shopping without seeing t-shirt slapped with racial slurs, watching businesses being built atop my people graves, see our suffering reduced to an aesthetic, as if Romani aren’t still forcefully sterilized when they go to the hospital for cold medicine

Are you fucking listening? Do you understand what I’m telling you? I’m not a prop, im not an aesthetic, im not fucking Halloween costume, im a real actual person whose people are suffering I am so fucking sick of leftists and so-called activists who refuse to acknowledge that Romani people even exist, let alone try to, gods forbid, help us.

The only gadje I ever see defend Romani people are Jewish people. And that’s great, Jewish people thank you, but why are the only gadje who care about us getting murdered by Nazis the one’s who are also getting murdered by Nazis?

Stop talking about fucking “peaceful transitions of power” and “don’t fight hate with hate” and “if you punch Nazis you’re just as bad” stop fucking telling Jewish and Romani people they are just as bad as the monsters who fucking slaughtered millions of their people

Fucking hell I don’t even know what the point of this post is im just so fucking done with your shitty activism and your half-assed defenses and your “listen to both sides of the argument even if one side is LITERAL NAZIS” nonsense and your refusal to listen when people call you out on your bullshit im just done

thoughts on phanthony collab? i thought it was so good and they worked well together. i'll admit i was kind of nervous because phil's chemistry can be hit or miss with people but this was so nice and calm i loved it

yessss omg these american youtubers are the only ppl who apparently truly understand fan service and keep giving the people what we actually want!!!!!!! this vid was just 10 mins of phil being soft and fawning over a cute dog and also a cute boy :( i love it so much. their sense of humor actually rly did blend so well, and anthony was so receptive to phil being his quirky self and phil was so calm and gentle and not over-performing!!! plus like just the aesthetics alone are top-notch, the way anthony colors his videos is gorgeous, and they’re both beautiful humans, and phil in that jacket is nearly painfully lovely hahaha. i just wrote out thoughts on my fav moments while watching so i’ll paste those: 

  • lmao @ anthony smooching the drawing of phil right on the mouth. why is he so flirtatious with both dan and phil it’s genuinely so funny 
  • phil sounds .. so good …. over the phone
  • ‘phil, i was trying out a new nickname for you. phil .. me up’ damn anthony is relentless, i need to take notes
  • that firm hug when phil first arrives, wow what a man
  • at 3:48 when they’re figuring out how they’re going to make the sweater and phil just starts barking and tickles anthony’s neck .. i love that he is just so phil and doesn’t rly try to filter that, like he is so unique and somehow mixes that in w being touchy and cute whenever he’s around people and it’s so fun to watch how other ppl react to it tbh. i love that anthony just rolls with it and giggles and plays along. this + all the flirting is why the chemistry is There people
  • i love that the first things phil thinks of for how to make the sweater special are glitter and sparkles
  • phil can’t whistle. did we know that? i don’t think i knew that
  • phil’s shaky hands :( he’s always had shaky hands when he’s slightly under pressure and you can see it in videos sometimes and i think it was so cute that he kind of pointed it out himself here and then just laughed and brushed it off :((( i love him 
  • 4:26 instantly iconic moment of phil almost calling anthony ‘dan’ but cutting himself off at the last moment hahahaha tragic
  • ‘pet me anthony’ ok i can’t fault my mans for availing himself of this opportunity to just go all out and flirt w a pretty boy in his distinctly phil style
  • anthony joins the legions of men before him who have touched phil’s skin and instantly commented on how soft it is. phil immediately offers up that he moisturizes in the same proud tone as always and i am more in love than ever before and more bitter too bc when will phil do an actual comprehensive run-down of his skincare routine
  • ‘let me phil you in’ … apparently he crossed a line with that one anthony looks disgusted ahahaha .. same tbh
  • 5:53 phil listening to anthony talk with his hands pressed to his cheeks is maybe cuter than anything in this video 
  • phil refusing to even write the word bitch and anthony nearly crying with laughter bc of it is a Big Mood
  • phil adding a doodle of some lips to the ‘chic bitch’ is an even bigger mood he’s so fucking funny and good omg
  • phil saying ‘helloooo’ to the pup :(((( end me :( 
  • the cute high pitched voice he uses when he says ‘we made you a little sweater’!!!!!!!!!!!! fuck!!!!!!!!!! little sweater!!!!!!!!!! there are tears in my eyes!!!!!!!!
  • phil’s assessment: roux hates the sweater bc it has foul language and no glitter, and it’s made out of something anthony’s crotch has pressed against djfksdfjskdfj his  mind is a marvel. this video is a marvel

i loved everything so much it was so soft and good :( feelin nothing but grateful to anthony for including dnp in such nice lil videos :((( truly a talent i owe him my life now

questioningemotrash  asked:

Hi there! I've just recently started teaching myself spanish, and I was curious; what mistakes do you often see people learning Spanish make? Thank you!

¡Hola!

Well, there are so many kinds of mistakes.

I think the most common mistake of all time is to forget if a word is feminine or masculine. But I understand this can be difficult and even advanced students still get some words wrong, but they correct themselves right away.

Related to that, adjectives also have gender and number. Remember the adjective goes after the noun, most of the time.

And… articles, and possessive adjectives also have gender and number.

Articles: un, una, unos, unas (a, some); el, la, los, las (the).
Possessive adjectives: mi, mis, tu, tus, su, sus, nuestro/a, nuestros/as.

Remember the important thing here is the noun, and the adjectives, articles and possessive adjectives will change depending on the noun.

For example:

  • Tengo una flor bonita. - I have a pretty flower.
  • Tengo unas flores bonitas. - I have some pretty flowers.
  • Mi amigo es simpático. - My friend is nice.
  • Mis amigos son simpáticos. - My friends are nice.

problema

The word problema. This word ends in “a” but it is a masculine word. So we say:

  • el problema - the problem
  • un problema - a problem
  • muchos problemas - many problems

I made a post of the most common words that end in “a” but are masculine. here.

gente

The word gente (people). In English the word “people” is plural, but in Spanish “gente” is feminine and singular because we use it as a group of people. So we say:

  • la gente - the people
  • mucha gente - many people
  • poca gente - few people

I also made a post about this here. :)

Remember it is:
¿Cuál es tu nombre? - What is your name?
And not: ¿Qué es tu nombre? (X)

In English, when you have two nouns you just put them together, as “action movie” or “orange juice”.

In Spanish we need de in between these two nouns. For example:

  • película de acción - action movie (movie of action)
  • jugo de naranja - orange juice (juice of orange)
  • clase de piano - piano class (class of piano)

Also with people:

  • el hermano de mi amiga - My friend’s brother (the brother of my friend)
  • la madre de mi novio - My boyfriend’s mother (the mother of my boyfriend)

In English you can say “I eat breakfast” or “I have breakfast” but in Spanish we have a verb to say this, So we don’t need the verb “eat” or “have”.

desayunar: to have breakfast

  • ¿Qué desayunaste? - What did you have for breakfast?
  • Esta mañana desayuné huevos y jugo de naranja. - This morning I had eggs and orange juice for breakfast.

We also have:

  • almorzar: to have lunch
  • comer: to have lunch/dinner (In Spain and Latin America the main meal is in the afternoon, around 14:00 to 16:00)
  • merendar: to have an afternoon snack
  • cenar: to have dinner

Visit my post related to this.

Many students get confused by these pronouns because in English you say “at school” or “at the party” but a is not at.

We use a when someone or something is going/moving to somewhere.
We use en when someone or something is located somewhere.

a = to
en = in/on/at

So we say:
Hoy fui a la escuela. - Today I went to school.
Estoy en la escuela. - I’m at school.

Voy a ir a una fiesta. - I’m going to a party.
Hay mucha gente en la fiesta. - There are a lot of people at the party.

See my post about this.

Remember it is:

Gracias por _____ - Thank you for ___
Perdón por _____ - Sorry for ___

When we want to say that we like something, we always need an article before the noun.

  • Me gusta el chocolate. - I like chocolate.
    Me gusta chocolate (X)

  • Me gustan las películas. - I like movies.
    Me gusta películas (X)
    Me gustan películas (X)

Remember “gusta” changes to “gustan” when the noun is plural.

When we want to talk about someone else’s likes. We use le.

le gusta / le gustan

And we also need A before the person that we are talking about:

  • A ella le gusta el café - She likes coffee.
  • A mi hermano le gustan los dinosaurios - My brother likes dinosaurs.
  • A mi amigo le gusta el fútbol - My friend likes football

(I think I should make a post only for “gustar”)

These are Spanish words that look very similar to English words but have different meanings.

See the post here.

I don’t know why some beginner Spanish students just skip these verbs or they take too long to learn them. We use them all the time and knowing how Reflexive Verbs work will help you understand many common phrases as:

¿Me veo bien? - Do I look good?
Te quiero ver. - I want to see you.
Nos vamos a la playa. - We’re going to the beach.
¿Cómo se dice? - How do you say it?

See my post: Introduction to Reflexive Verbs.
And here’s a video :)


I think that’s all for now!
People make all kinds of mistakes depending on their level and their first language. But these are the mistakes that I see repeating over and over again in all kinds of students.

However, don’t let mistakes stop you from talking. We can’t be perfect and we were not born knowing everything. And besides, people understand and they are glad to know you are making an effort learning their language.

Why you should totally buy Fire Emblem: Echoes

So this Friday, Nintendo just released the latest title to the Fire Emblem franchise; Fire Emblem: Echoes. I’ m a few hours deep and I am absolutely enjoying it! 

 But it looks so different!

Don’t let that scare you off! The story progresses in a similar way to the world map in Awakening! The only real noticeable difference is that you just go battle after battle and you more or less take turns doing Alm and Celica’s routes.

I’ve also heard that there’s no avatar in the game? 

That’s correct, there is no customizable avatar this time around; however, you get to experience the game through the lens of the protagonists, Alm and Celica who each have their own admirable traits.

Below is the portrait of the protag when you’re on their route!

Look at my baby out to destroy people

I really enjoyed Awakening/Fates, am I going to have an enjoyable experience?

Yes, I do believe so and there are some returning features such as casual mode! So if you’re like me and can’t stand losing units, this is a god send. The game difficulty starts out at normal but the game seems simple enough on both routes (I may eat my words later)  there’s even a new feature called “Mila’s Turnwheel” which allows you to go back a few turns and re-strategize to avoid frustrating resets. Which reminds me…

More new things?

Yes, there are a few more new things. If you’re familiar with the likes of the Professor Layton series, now you can explore dungeons and villages with your protags. You’ll crawl dungeons for most of your grinding as opposed to doing odd skirmishes here and there or using items such as Reeking Boxes. You will also recruit characters through this new method and just talk to them outside of the battlefield to get them to join your army. 

What good will it do if I choose to buy this game?

Not only will you have a good time, but this game can impact the very success of the franchise as a whole. If this game does sell well, not only does that open up the option of more older game remakes to come, but more games in general! Since Awakening’s success, Nintendo has been treating Fire Emblem as a major IP, and if the games continue to sell well, it can maintain that status. So new and old fans alike, please purchase and play Echoes!

things i learned in 2016:

  • sometimes i’ll try my best in school and i’ll still fall short of my goals, but i’ll still survive because life goes on
  • what’s important is learning how to overcome fear of failure and perfectionism
  • rest is important, but so is knowing how to push myself enough that i can accomplish the goals i have for myself
  • taking care of myself is important, but so is being aware of how to improve myself so i can be happy with the person i am
  • being by myself and having quality Me time is important, but so is interacting with people who uplift me and add positivity and radiance into my life
  • i don’t have to drink if i don’t want to
  • nothing excuses behaviors that hurt other people
  • i don’t have to cut off my friendships from high school just because college is a time to Explore and Meet New People™ 
  • with that being said, i also shouldn’t cling onto past relationships just because they were once a thing. there’s a time to let go for almost everything, and relationships aren’t an exception
  • support systems are important
  • social media breaks are important
  • doing things that are fulfilling in life is important
  • helping other people is important
  • GETTING. ENOUGH. SLEEP. IS. IMPORTANT.
  • i missed reading books purely for the joy of it
  • the most ‘successful’ people in the world learn to let go of envy or jealousy, and learn + gain motivation/inspiration from those who are better than them
  • negative bias is real, but just its mere existence indicates that good things do happen in this world and i will learn how to appreciate that more in 2017, god damnit.
  • i need to rely more on internal and not external validation

people make me laugh with their depictions of latinx characters like 

  • we are not universal. not all latinx people speak the same and we don’t all share the same culture. there are some words certain latinx people would use and others wouldn’t. our dishes are different. our accents are different. like acknowledge that we are a very diverse community
  • y’all need to understand how being bilingual works like. no you can’t just be like “Wow this azul sky is so bonito” like no. you sound ridiculous. your character sounds ridiculous. if you’re not bilingual and/or you don’t know spanish, your ass needs to go and talk to people and hear how they speak
  • for fuck’s sake i see one more story where the character only listened to daddy yankee and pit bull i’m gonna shit myself. reggaeton is not the only shit we listen to. again. go talk to latinx folks and find some different discography for god’s sake. 
  • we’re not automatically fluent in spanish. we’re not automatically good chefs. we’re not automatically good dancers. we don’t automatically come from big families. we don’t all have abuelitas that cook for us. we don’t always have connected families. 
  • stop thinking that latinx = we got hit as children. honestly, chancla jokes aren’t funny if you aren’t latinx, i’ll be very honest with you. being latinx doesn’t mean our parents hit us as children. people come up me and say “oh lol that chancla thing happened to you right?” no. it didn’t. shut the fuck up. 
  • basically, get these depictions you regularly see on television out of your head immediately and go consume some actual honest to god media and talk to actual honest to god people
  • i swear people think they can just write about whatever they want and it’s “cool” and “cute” because they’re including other cultures
  • no. do us justice or don’t write us. bc know that if you offend my culture, im coming for you. 
Recent Drama about Artemis

SO there has been a lot of drama about Artemis and who she belongs to , or something like that. This has been from non-Hellenic religious people

I have seen things like this: 

  • “Artemis is aro/ace” (and you have to agree) 
  • “Artemis isn’t a lesbian, Aphrodite has links to Sappho use her as your lesbian icon”
  • “Why are you stealing our lesbian goddess [Artemis] from us you lesbophobes”
  • “It is lesbophoic to deny lesbian ties to Artemis” 
  • “I  wish the people making a stink about this would just admit that they only knew about her being associated with the moon and just ignorantly jumped to labeling her a lesbian”
  • “Stops stealing Artemis from the ace community” 
  • “Artemis being labeled a Lesbian triggers self harm” 
  • “Both Aphrodite and Artemis are ours sorry”
  • “ I have never met in my entire life a cishet worshiper of Artemis”

I’m not going to try and have a discussion about non-Hellenics using our Goddesses; only this– if you want to use our Gods don’t be surprised when one of us starts get upset about it and joins in on the “discussion”. These posts are all over Tumblr so whether they are religious or not they are going to reach the eyes of Hellenic worshipers sooooooooooo: 

I am making this post for the sake of new Hellenic Polytheists or anyone religiously interested in the Greek Gods. 

I see questions like these alllllll the time on and off anon: 

  • I am asexual can I still worship Aphrodite? 
  • I am a man can I worship Artemis? 
  • I am trans-woman can I worship Hera? 
  • I am gay man can I still worship Aphrodite? 
  • Is worshiping mother goddesses okay if I don’t want children?

And so many other similar questions. 

Lets get the bottom line religiously: The Theoi do not pick sides. You cannot slap a sticker on any God or Goddess and say “MINE.” They all want to be worshiped. 

Discourse throughout the religious Hellenic community about these sexuality/gender ideas has always been civil and people respect the fact when a particular worshiper doesn’t want to contribute to this discussion. Is Artemis aro/ace? Some worshipers see her that way and that is their right, it is not their right to force it on other worshipers. And this is the consensus I have seen within this community. 

If you are ace you can worship Aphrodite. If you are a lesbian you can worship Artemis. If you are a man you can worship Hera. If you are childless you can worship Rhea. If you are a woman you can worship Apollo.

No matter your sexuality you can worship any Theoi. No matter your gender you can worship any Theoi. No matter your lifestyle you can worship any Theoi. No matter your profession you can worship any Theoi. 

You. Anyone reading this. Can worship any Theoi, just as you are.  

Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. If they do, then the Hellenic community should be unwelcoming to that individual. 

[LYRICS] B.A.P Jongup - Try My Luck

How about her/him(,) over there that Table
The expression in his/her eyes look cold
So that’s why I’m attracted to you
Right now(,) that hand weighs on (my) heart

Even if (I/you) think of something else(,) there’s no use
Imagine(,) of that you haven’t seen before
(I’ll) draw it for (you)
I’ll take you there

Wait a moment
(My) stomach is hungry(, let’s) eat something
This place kind of doesn’t suit you
(I) know someplace that will suit you well tonight
Say now whether (you will) go or not
(My) personality is rash
If you want it(,) wherever is soon So good
(You) will be able see it(,) as you feel it

I try my luck start it
Try my luck tonight
Try my luck teach me
Try my luck Wuh-uh-uh
Your lips are Killer
Your thick scent
It’s still too early to stop
I need your body on me
Stop exactly like that (and) to me
Call (me) desperately
I’ve got a feel of your feeling
I think you beautiful
I try my luck start it
Try my luck tonight
Try my luck teach me
Try my luck Wuh-uh-uh

(I) know it(,) that feeling
What it is you want
I want it as well(,) we
Only us two can do it
You know how I am feeling
I just wanna chill it

Immediately (right now,) you get on my car
Close the car door(,) raise the volume
(I) know what music you want
(I) won’t tell you where (we) will go
No matter what party(,) I’m not left out
Stick right by (my) side and enjoy this situation
Look at my curious expression
If it’s a feeling(,) erase that thought
I try my luck start it

Try my luck tonight
Try my luck teach me
Try my luck Wuh-uh-uh
Your lips are Killer
Your thick scent
It’s still too early to stop
I need your body on me
Stop exactly like that (and) to me
Call (me) desperately
I’ve got a feel of your feeling
I think you beautiful
I try my luck start it
Try my luck tonight
Try my luck teach me
Try my luck Wuh-uh-uh

Who is concerned (about this) right now
Concentrate only on my eyes
Around is all just
Only uninteresting kids/people

I try my luck start it
Try my luck tonight
Try my luck teach me
Try my luck Wuh-uh-uh
Your lips are Killer
Your thick scent
It’s still too early to stop
I need your body on me
Stop exactly like that (and) to me

I’ve got a feel of your feeling
I think you beautiful
I try my luck start it
Try my luck tonight

Dear Straight People - Denice Frohman

Dear straight people
Who do you think you are?
Do you have to make it so obvious that I make you uncomfortable?
Do you know that makes me uncomfortable?
Now we’re both uncomfortable.

Dear straight people
You’re the reason we stay in the closet.
You’re the reason we even have a closet,
I don’t like closets
But you’ve made the living room an unshared space
And now I’m feeling like a guest in my own house.

Dear straight people
Sexuality and gender: two different things,
Combined in many different ways,
If you mismatch your socks you’ll understand.

Dear hip hop
Why’re you so fascinated with discovering gay rappers?
Gay people rap,
Just like gay people ride bikes and eat tofu.

Dear straight people
I don’t think God has a sexual orientation
But if she were straight she’d be a dope ally,
Why else would she invent rainbows?

Dear straight women
- I mean ‘straight’ women,
Leave me the fuck alone.

Dear straight men
If I’m flirting with you it’s because I think it’s funny,
Just laugh.

Dear straight people
I’m tired of having to prove my love is authentic
So I’m calling for reparations on your asses.
When did you realise you were straight?
Who taught you?
Did it happen because your parents are divorced?
Did it happen because your parents are not divorced?
Did it happen because you sniffed too much glue in fifth grade?

Dear straight people
Why do I have to prove my love is authentic?
Why do I have to prove my love is authentic?
Why do I have to prove my love is authentic?

Dear straight people
Why do you have to stare at me
When I’m holding my girlfriend’s hand like I’m about to rob you?

Dear straight people
You make me want to fucking rob you.

Dear straight allies
Thank you,
More please.

Dear straight bullies
You’re right, we don’t have the same values,
You kill everything that’s different,
I preserve it.
Tell me,
What happened to
Jorge Mercado?
Sakia Gunn?
Lawrence King?
What happened to the souls
Alienated between too many high school walls
Who planned the angle of their death in math class,
Who imagined their funerals as ticker tape parades,
Who thought the after life was more like an after party?
Did you notice that hate is alive and well in too many lunch rooms?
Taught in the silence of too many teachers,
Passed down like second hand clothing from too many parents.

Dear queer young girl
I see you,
You don’t want them to see you
So you change the pronouns in your love poems to 'him’
Instead of 'her’.
I used to do that.

Dear straight people
You make young poets make bad edits.

Dear straight people
Kissing my girlfriend in public
without looking to see who is around
Is a luxury I do not fully have yet,
But tonight I am drunk in my freedom,
Wrap her hand on the busiest street corner in Philadelphia,
Zip my fingers into hers and press our lips firmly
Until we melt their stares into a standing ovation,
Imagine that we are in a sea of smiling faces even when we’re not,
And when we’re not we start shovelling,
Digging deep into each others eyes we say
“Hey baby ain’t nothing can stop us tonight,
'Cause tonight this world is broken and we are the only thing
That’s gonna keep it together”.

nerdhen  asked:

I have a gay relationships in my novel. I want to make it a non-factor, just a relationship as solid and screwed up as any other. It is not the main characters, and I fear that I am fucking up by making a trope of "gay best friend." The novel is not about statements on gay culture and I simply felt it fit and wanted to show I support all forms of love. As a straight male, should I just leave it out. Leave it alone? How do I do this correctly?

Well, man, as a gay dude, I gotta ask one thing. How the hell do you deal with the straight relationships in your story? How do you fit them in without feeling like you’re making statements on straight culture? If you represent one straight relationship bad, does that mean all straight people are like that?

Okay, on a real note, you’re so afraid of something, you’re forgetting to look at your characters as people. Breathe in. Relax. You’re aware that you’ve probably absorbed stereotypes about “gay culture” (in quotations because, given how myriad and ever-changing that could be based on the individual, I honestly don’t know what you could mean), and that’s good. But you’re letting fear paralyze you before you even start, and I’m betting you don’t even know what you’re afraid of!

There are always things you could do. Write it like any other relationship, remember your characters are people, not stereotypes. Seek out media by LGBT people about LGBT people. Watch Moonlight, if you don’t know where to start.

Write knowing you’ll make mistakes, get second opinions. If your instincts are telling you the relationship feels hollow, trust them. Get third opinions. Mistakes are fixable. Everyone screws up characters at one point or another.

Just give it a shot, man. You can’t fix something if you never try in the first place.

Edit:

ravens-heart: I would also add, if at all possible get second/third opinions from LGBT people

I mean that should go without saying, but nevertheless.

I know this is an unpopular opinion but I don’t care

I love Assassin’s Creed Revelations

I love Sofia Sartor and how smart and resourceful she is
I love how bright and sunny Constantinople is
I love how dark and mysterious the puzzles are
I love Yusuf Tazim
I love an aging Ezio Auditore with gray hair and a gray beard
I love the beautiful market places and people
I love the hook and blade
I love the suspense of not knowing if Desmond is gonna make it out
I love Yusuf Tazim
I love how Ezio slowly learns more and more about Altair
I love the skyline filled with mosques and ships
I love Yusuf Tazim
