Top 10 Btvs Quotes

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is without question the defining piece of media of my life. I watched it as it aired all throughout my adolescence and it profoundly shaped my life and self in so many ways from big to small (hell, even the way I talk and randomly slap together prefixes and suffixes as a phrase called for can be traced back to Buffy).

While it has its issues, the show taught me to believe in myself, to keep going, to treasure my weirdness and the strange and awkward things that don’t fit are the best things about me and what makes me me. It showed me that superheroes come in all shapes and sizes, with and without capes, in and out of the spotlight. It defined the kind of person I wanted to be and I know there’s a whole generation of people that feel the same.

In honor of the 20th anniversary here’s a list of my personal top ten most meaningful Buffy quotes. There are a billion and fifty amazing, quotable moments and these aren’t even necessarily my favorite. These are the ones that meant the most to me, the ones that stuck with me and I think of when I need them.

“No weapons, no friends, no hope. Take all that away and what’s left?”

“I’m the thing the monsters have nightmares about.”

"Seize the moment, ‘cause tomorrow you might be dead.”

“To forgive is an act of compassion, Buffy. It’s-it’s… it’s not done because people deserve it. It’s done because they need it.”

“I made it up. I’m making it all up. So what kind of hero does that make me?”

“No guy is worth your life, not ever”

“When I say ‘I love you,’ it’s not because I want you or because I can’t have you. It has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, how you try. I’ve seen your kindness and your strength. I’ve seen the best and worst of you. And I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You’re a hell of a woman.”

“I guess I just realized how amazingly screwed up they all are. I mean, really, really screwed up, in a monumental fashion. And they have no purpose that unites them so they just drift around, blundering through life until they die… which they… they know is coming, yet every single one of them is surprised when it happens to them. They’re incapable of thinking about what they want beyond the moment. They kill each other, which is clearly insane. And yet, here’s the thing – when it’s something that really matters, they fight. I mean, they’re lame morons for fighting, but they do. They never… never quit. So I guess I will keep fighting too.”

“They’ll never know how tough it is, Dawnie. To be the one who isn’t chosen. To live so near the spotlight and never step in it. But I know. I see more than anybody realizes because nobody’s watching me. I saw you last night. I see you working here today. You’re not special. You’re extraordinary.”

Hi so that was a list of 40 affixes from Esperanto, which I’m learning at the moment. I hope this helps some people. I think I got all or at least most of them. But I did leave out -Um- because it’s irregular and weird and… stuff. This is my first post so please be merciful, and if you’ve actually read this boring explanation, well then thanks.

how to understand Dutch compound nouns

Everyone who’s learning Dutch will know. You’re reading a text and suddenly you see a (compound) noun of which you don’t know the meaning. But fear not! There is a very helpful strategy: break up the word in smaller, understanable words and/or prefixes/suffixes.

For example:


  • valk = falcon
  • uil = owl

See, very simple! now you know the meaning of the word valkuil!

e.g. halotolerance (adaptation of living organisms to conditions of high salinity) , halophile (a type of extremophile organisms that thrive in high salt concentrations

hepa- Gr., liver

histo- Gr., tissue

Fact: Literal interpretations based on words’ prefixes, suffixes, or etymologies is garbage. For example, the word “fee” comes from the Old English “feoh,” which means cattle. We no longer pay fees in units of cows, but the general principle applies.

It’s okay if you want to call yourself bisexual even if the only attraction you experience is romantic. 

It’s okay if you identify as bisexual and are attracted to more than two genders.

Words change in meaning over time. The meaning of bisexuality right now, as defined by the consensus of the bisexual community, is the attraction to two or more genders. The specifics of how that applies in your case is up to you.

What gets my goat: applying prefixes or suffixes to multiword terms. Because hyphen feels like it should bind tighter than space, anti-Vietnam War looks suspiciously like (anti Vietnam) War instead of anti (Vietnam War). Ouch!

What’s In a Name? Part 17

It’s back after a few months of hiatus! A reader requested a look at geimei with only one kanji or names that use katakana instead of hiragana, and your wish is my command ^^v

Overall there are very few geimei with just a single kanji, and I’ve previously covered some of them (Teru, Mitsu, Masaru, Hide, Ichi, Ei, Toyo, Tsutsumi). So, this was not an easy task ^^; Geimei with katakana were popular in the mid 20th century, likely due to the American influence after World War II.

Mari - 鞠
Prefix or Suffix: Both
Old Meaning: Ball
New (Standardized) Meaning: Ball
Found In: Pontocho

Looking specifically at single kanji name this one is very similar to Tama (玉), however Tama has more of a treasure/precious stone meaning whereas Mari is more of a sphere and just a plain old ball. It is almost identical to another kanji that’s pronounced Mari, “毬,” which can also mean “ball” but this one is most commonly used for pine cones.

鞠 Mari (Pontocho): “Ball,” explained above.

Koto - 琴
Prefix or Suffix: Both
Old Meaning: Koto
New (Standardized) Meaning: Koto
Found In: Miyagawa Cho

The koto is a 13 stringed instrument that’s played on the floor. Even though it’s technically a type of lute it more closely resembles a Western harp.

琴 Koto (Miyagawa Cho): “Koto,” explained above.

Fusa - 房
Prefix or Suffix: Suffix
Old Meaning: Tassel, Orange Segment
New (Standardized) Meaning: Tassel, Orange Segment
Found In: Gion Kobu

Yes, this one seems odd as tassels don’t really have much in common with orange segments, but not all languages make sense to people with different native languages. Tassels were once considered a sign of decadence as adding a tassel was an extra cost for some additional decoration on already expensive garments and wares. Orange segments are pretty self explanatory ^^;

房 Fusa (Gion Kobu): “Tassel” or “Orange Segment,” explained above.

For the Katakana ones there’s no way to do the usual layout as they don’t share any meaning, so they’ll be listed as examples.

フミヱ Fumie (Kamishichiken): “Wealthy,” “Beauty Blessed With Wealth,” “Blessed Art,”  this one is really awesome as “ヱ” is an obsolete katakana that can be spelled as “E” or “Ei” so it gives this name a wide variety of meanings.
カナエ Kanae (Gion Kobu): “Excellent and Prosperous Vegetables,” “Excellent Summer Robe,” “Blessed Wish,” another really interesting name as there’s so many ways that it can be translated. 
ハナ Hana (Gion Kobu): “Flower,” covered in kanji form previously.
ハマ Hama (Gion Kobu): “Seashore,” a sound that hasn’t been used in a long time likely due to Kyoto actually being far from the sea.


Говорить means to speak.
The root is говор. How do different prefixes and suffixes change the meaning? Let’s see. The first verb - a present perfect form, the second one - imperfect.

Выговорить - выговаривать = to take to task or to pronounce distinctly. (with Accusative case)
Выговориться - выговариваться = to speak out
Договорить - договаривать = finish talking, to talk to the eds of the speach (with Acc)
Договориться - Договариваться = to reach an agreement, to make a deal
Заговорить - Заговаривать = second never used. To start talking (with c + Instrumental or with о + Prepositional)
Заговориться - Заговариваться = to ramble, to talk nonsense
Наговорить - Наговаривать = first never used. to accuse smb, to slander (with на + Acc)
Наговориться - Наговариваться = to have a good long talk. Close to выговориться.
Оговорить - Оговаривать = also to slander or to precise, specify (with Acc)
Оговориться - Оговариваться = to bloop, to make a blooper
Отговорить - Отговаривать = to talk out of, persuade not to do smth (with Acc)
Проговорить - Проговаривать = to pronounce distinctly (more frequent than выговорить) (with Acc)
Проговориться - Проговариваться = accidentally to say smth that shouldn’t be said (like a secret)
Разговаривать (imperfect) = to speak, to have a conversation (c + Inst; o + Prep)
Разговориться - Разговариваться = second never used. to be very shy when start speaking, but than feel comfortable and talk without stopping
Сговориться - Сговариваться = to plot (about 2 or more people), to gang up (с + Inst)
Уговорить - Уговаривать = to convince, to persuade (with Acc)

The perfect verbs column has only past and future forms (заговорил - заговорю). They are conjugated the same way as говорить (table below), but present tense (настоящее) stants for the future with these verbs. буду-forms are not used with them at all.
The imperfect verbs column has similar conjugation. I’ll give an example on the verb разговаривать. It also suits the rest of the verbs, just add a proper prefix and -cя.

Gradient gender

I am coining this term!

Gradient gender: A gender(s) that are vague, and feel like a point on a gradient where any given point could be a gender (if genders are represented by the colors on said gradient) and can be vaguely identified but never pinpointed at an exact/precise “color” [gender identity].

Additionally this gender(s) may be blended so much into other “colors” [feelings of gender] or feelings of confusion/other feelings that make one’s gender hard to identify, that it cannot be pinpointed.

Lastly these gender(s) could be so diluted/blended that they are like the in-between stages on a gradient where one color flows into another, and it is impossible to decide where either color stops or starts or the point at which they are both completely blended.

Can be used with other prefixes/suffixes and gender identifiers.


Gradient female or male: A gender that is vaguely female or male but can’t be pinpointed due to being represented in a sense that it is on a gradient

Gradientfluid: A gender(s) that are fluid but shift between vaguely unidentifiable points on a gradient. Some of these genders may be identifiable and some may not.

Gradientflux: A gender(s) that flux between vaguely identifiable points on a gradient. Again some of these may be identifiable and some may not

Demigradient: A gender(s) in which certain parts (or certain genders) are able to be precisely identified but others are represented by being vague points on a gradient

Neurogradient: A gender(s) that are represented by being on a gradient due to neurodivergency. May also be used with specific neurotypes (For example Autismgradient or autigradient for autistic people, dissociagradient for people who are dissociative, etc etc)

These may also be used with several prefixes/suffixes and gender identifiers, as many as one wishes.

For me, I would identify as a gradientflux boy, or agender flux gradient male. I feel like I flux between male and agender but it feels like trying to pinpoint a spot on a gradient and is too hard to identify beyond a vague point. I feel like my gender is at some point where the colors are blended but you can’t tell where one stops and the other starts, for example blending gray (agender) and blue (male) together, and picking a spot near the point where they are mostly blended together. The point shifts and it’s often hard to identify how much gray (agender) and how much blue (male) I am. I would also be neurogradient as these feelings are caused at least in part by neurogivergency.

Note: Gradient gender can be considered binary or non binary / genderqueer depending upon individual, and may also be considered a nuerogender but does not have to be, again based upon the individual.

As far as I know, “fucking” and variations of that word are the only acceptable infixes in English. An infix is an affix like a prefix or a suffix, but it goes in the middle of a word.


  • abso-fucking-lutely
  • mito-fucking-chondrias
  • parme-fucking-san
  • Cali-fucking-fornia

And I think that’s beautiful
