can you make a checklist on how to get into the gorillaz?? It seems like there is a lot out there and its hard to follow when i'm getting into it late.. thank you!!
Sure!!! I personally got into them by watching their G-bitez and music videos and it all kinda spiraled from there.
The band itself was made by Damon Albarn (Lead singer of Blur, does vocals and writes lyrics for Gorillaz) and Jamie Hewlett (Co-creator of the comic book “Tank Girl”, draws and animates for Gorillaz) after they were both watching MTV and they were like “hey music today sucks you know what’d be cool?? if we made an animated band” “cool we could call it ‘gorilla’ because we were both born on the year of the monkey!!!” sadly animal planet had already copyrighted “gorilla” so they just added a z to the end of it to make it cooler.
Something to know about Gorillaz is that they have “phases”. Phase 1 was in 2001, when they released their albums “Gorillaz”, “G-Sides” and “Laika come home”. Phase 1′s art style was cartoonish and used very thick lineart. Phase 2 was in 2005, when they released “Demon Days” and “D-sides”. Phase 2′s art style was a bit dark and looked more realistic. Phase 3 was in 2010, when they released the albums “Plastic Beach” and “The Fall” in 2011. Phase 3′s art style was almost the same as phase 2′s. Then we have Phase 4 in 2017, their new album “Humanz” is coming out April 28th. It’s art style is the one that stands out the most to me, you can find most of the art on Jamie Hewlett’s Instragram (Hewll)
Alright, a big part of me getting into the fandom was my love fore the characters. I’m assuming you’re not a fan yet, so let me introduce them to you (i’m going to use powerpoints to explain each member if u don’t mind):
This lovely lad here is Murdoc Faust Niccals.
- He’s the band’s leader/bassist, and he makes sure EVERYONE knows that’s it’s his band and only his. - He went through multiple other bands before he formed Gorillaz. - He was born on June 6th, 1966 in Stoke-on-Trent, England. As an infant he was abandoned on his father’s doorstep. - Had a very rough childhood, his father, Sebastian Niccals, would force him to preform on stage for booze money and it was absolutely humiliating for him. - His nose has been broken a of total 8 times. The first time was from a bully at his school, the 2nd time was from his older (and only) brother, Hannibal, because Murdoc had touched his records and the other 6 times were from Russel when he got caught “doing it” with 2D’s now ex-girlfriend in the bathroom stalls of Kong Studios
- His middle name was originally “Alphonse” but he changed it to “Faust” after making a deal with the Devil in phase 1 to make Gorillaz the “biggest band in the world”. That’s also how he got his bass, “El Diablo”.
- did i mention he was a satanist bc he is - He hangs around in his underwear a lot (especially in phase 2) - He likes to either get naked or start pelvic thrusting in like every video, so be careful, young anon. - He’s very crude but sometimes he can be very nice and adorable in some interviews ??? It’s so weird - He likes making weird noises, like, a lot. - Apparently can speak French and Spanish - His reason for turning green all of the sudden in phase 2 is either because of alcohol poisoning or due to him tanning himself green. Jamie himself said that it’s because he’s an immortalist and his skin is now rotting but I’m not sure how true it is. - He had a pet raven in phase 2!!! His name was Cortez and no one really knows what happened to him but Murdoc seemed to love that bird. - He also had a cape in phase 2 that he loved and wore like all the time but he lost it. Poor baby. - He was based off of a young 1960′s era KeithRichards. - He has a tongue longer than Gene Simmons’ and I’m not even kidding. His tongue is like a foot long - His genuine laugh can cure cancer - He had his own MTV cribs episode - Here’s a playlist of every interview he’s been in if you’d like to know a bit more about how he acts. - All of this sounds horrible but like half of the fandom sees him as charming and funny and the other half sees him as repulsive and downright mean so i guess listen to some of his interviews and make your decision (i’m part of the half that loves him)
This is 2D!!
- He’s the band’s singer, sometimes he plays the piano and melodica too. - He’s anxious and a bit timid around people. He’s not that intelligent, but he’s an absolute sweetheart to pretty much everyone. He’s … a huge dork. - He was born on May 23rd, 1978.
He was born in Hertfordshire, England and was raised in Crawley, England. When he was 10 he fell out of a tree and landed on his head, his hair fell out and grew back blue. He’s had horrible headaches since then, but his mother was a nurse and gave pills to help him out. - His real name is Stuart Pot - He loves horror films!!! Especially zombie movies. - Apparently he smells like butterscotch - He’s VERY tall. he’s like 6′1 and his legs make up most of his body. He towers over the rest of the band. - His voice actor is Nelson De Freitas, but Damon Albarn provides his singing voice - The lack of his two front teeth gives him an adorable accent - He has a crippling fear of whales - His eyes are black due to an 8-ball fracture that Murdoc gave him before the band was made when he crashed his car into the music store 2D worked at. - His eyes turn white when he’s stressed or scared. - His nickname “2D” stands for “Two Dents”. He’s called that because Murdoc’s car crash also gave him two dents in his head. - Murdoc is seen physically abusing 2D throughout phase 1-3, but there’s a very likely chance that he’s going to stop and make amends in phase 4!!! - Here’s a playlist of interviews that he’s been in
- Everybody loves him. I love him. I don’t think it’s possible not to love him.
This is Russel Hobbs!!
- He’s the band’s drummer. He makes remixes too!!! - The living embodiment of “looks like he could kill you but is actually a cinnamon roll” - Quite possibly the most underrated character in the world - He was born in Brooklyn, New York on June 3rd, 1975. He got possessed by a demon as a kid and fell into a coma for four years. After he woke up the demon got expelled tho - When he was a teen, him and his friends were involved in a drive-by shooting. Russel was the only survivor and all of his friends possessed him, but the only one we really get to see is his closest friend, Del, he raps in Clint Eastwood and Rock the House, but we haven’t seen him since phase 1. - Russel misses Del very dearly, poor lad. - After the whole shooting incident he was sent to the UK to live with his uncle. - HE SAVED 2D FROM BEING EATEN BY A WHALE. HE’S SO UNDERAPPRECIATED - He’s an actual giant in phase 3 because he ate some radioactive algae - He loves fezzes!!! - His hobby, besides music, is taxidermy. - He’s the dad friend - Here’s a playlist of interviews that he’s been in
Last but not least, this is Noodle
- She plays guitar for the band. She also sings and writes songs sometimes - Noodle is very energetic and nice but she can also kick your ass - She was born in Osaka, Japan on October 31st 1990
- She joined the band when she was around 10 but she’s like 26 now. I forgot to mention that the band ages with real time - As a kid she was a part of a classified child super solider project under the management of a japanese scientist named Mr. Kyuzo. this is where she learned how to be badass. She knew professional karate at like 10 how cool is that - All of the children in that project were deemed too unstable and dangerous, so they canceled the experiment and Mr. Kyuzo was ordered to kill all of the children (fuckin dark i know). After killing them all, Mr. Kyuzo was reluctant to kill Noodle, so instead he put her in a state of amnesia and smuggled her to the UK by shipping her to Kong Studios in a FedEx crate. - She didn’t remember anything!!! The only english thing she was able to say to say was “noodle” and that’s where she got her name. - She learned how to speak english and remembered her past in phase 2. - Murdoc, 2D and Russel raised her (mostly russel tho). Noodle considers Murdoc and 2D her brothers and Russel considers her his daughter how CUTE IS THAT - She loves Pokemon - She had a flying windmill island in phase 2 it was incredible - She had a cute radio helmet in phase 1 - She also has a robot version of herself called “Cyborg Noodle” in phase 3. It’s a long story but Cyborg might be coming back for phase 4. - The interviews that she’s in can be found here!!
The backstory is too long for me to write down, but you can find it over here! I hope i explained everything clearly- if not, or if you have any questions, feel free to send me a message!! I hope this helps you c:
pride and prejudice wasn't written as a resistance to the patriarchy djdjfhdhsj what
i mean i’ve been staring at this message for a solid minute now pondering how to reply, trying to figure out how ro reply, but honestly it boils down to one question: have you read it?
because literally the prevalent theme of pride & prejudice as well as other works of Austen—perhaps most visibly, sense & sensibility—is the ironic social commentary on the degraded role of women, as subjected and dependent on the way of whether they would marry well as they used to be?
like, honestly, what did you think it was about? sure it has a romance in it, but it’s probably one of the the most politically designed and carried out romantical arcs in literature, as it relies not so much on mutual affection, but rather darcy aknowledging his fault of diminishing elizabeth as an intelligent human being. at first, we see him as quite obviously set upon taking her for granted and applying stereotypes; startled with her outspoken attitude and clueless as to why she would reject him. because it IS surprising, that’s the point, given the context of Austen’s novel, the commonly praised choice would be to accept not only darcy, but mr collins without another thought. what do you think is the reason mrs bennet was so distraught all the time? there was no way of securing the future of her daughters other than marriage, we hear it being repeated over and over again—they cannot inherit their father’s fortune.
and—good grief. that’s the romantic ‘main plot’ concerning darcy and elizabeth alone, because the whole point is that he changes his beliefs and acknowledges elizabeth as an equal in the end. darcy isn’t exceptional for being surly and broody, he’s exceptional because he listens and learns.
but all the rest? the whole arc of charlotte, and her unhappy and dull marriage to mr collins, and the stark contrast with elizabeth. charlotte is not WRONG, she does the only thing she knows for certain will allow her to live in a respectful way without becoming ‘a burden to her parents’. the arc of lydia, basing off her portrayal against wickham? even with all his debt, infamy and faults, wickham’s opinion is at no point more blemished than lydia’s. that’s the point, that’s reiteraring the original notion of the disparity between men and women in regency England. the radiating, stinging paternalistic attitude of mr collins towards elizabeth when he marries charlotte and TELLS her that she would probably get no better chance. his absolute belief—corresponding with darcy’s, and contrasted with the latter’s rehabilitation later on—that elizabeth has no choice but accept him.
and elizabeth herself—for all the composition and impeccable manners, she IS a controversial figure in the novel. take the scene when she’s bashed by lady catherine de bourgh, the ongoing commentary on her being too forward with her opinions, the continuous bashing coming from her mother—the lingering threat that lizzy’s ‘stubbornness’ will cause her much trouble and, above all, prevent her from securing both her and the other sisters from absolute poverty when their father dies.
and, just … of course it’s written subtly, it’s conveyed in elizabeth’s wit, in austen’s slightly ironic narrative. the problem with the situation of women is not EXPLICITLY named and stated. it’s not modern times where we’re accustomed to forward addressing of feminist issues. no: it’s shown. it is not only the consistent theme in her works, it’s the prevalent theme of them. i mean, come on, there’s tonnes and tonnes of books that were NOT written with a purpose of targeting partiarchy. fuck, there are much MORE of such books than there is of the latter kind. But to choose Pride & Prejudice specifically, a novel which became one of the most famous books in the world, renowned for e x a c t l y t h i s … i cannot comprehend. please, at least consider this: do you really think the purpose of austen writing p&p was writing a romance? really? why would it become so much of a literature landmark, then?
i don’t mean to be nasty and honestly, go and have your opinion, you’re perfectly entitled to it, but it does make me sad that a novel that is a witty, outsanding and one of a kind social commentary on the plight of women in a specific time period written by a woman IN the time period is turned into something as common as a novel with a romantic plot. that’s all.
The human problem was growing bigger at an alarming pace.
Back when they first started travelling through space, most had viewed their
efforts as cute. Some had even cheered them on from afar. Of course, that was
before they realised what kind of creatures humans really are and what kind of
planet they originate on. Before they knew what humans did for fun.
The humans as a whole hadn’t attacked yet, but it was only a
matter of time before they gathered their forces. The Ktynarian species had to
As a result, they had commandeered a human craft, and with eight Ktynarians to every human, they’d managed to gain control of the vessel
and the horrible creatures within.
Unfortunately it was common knowledge that getting a fully
grown human to talk was a near impossible feat. Fortunately, there were several
younglings on the ship. The majority were younglings actually, which was a
surprise. Upon further investigation it was revealed the ship was operated by a
training facility of the category ‘school’.
After separating the humans into smaller groups to minimise
the risks of organised resistance, Commander Yldrik picked one of the medium
sized younglings to interrogate – having heard that the bigger posed a threat
in size, but that the smallest were often quick and nimble
Yes, the medium sized one were surely the easiest to make a
first attempt on. And if that failed, they still had a plethora of other humans
to interrogate. One of them would surely give them some useful information.
Some of the humans were secreting some sort of fluid from
their optical organs, some making noises the Ktynarians couldn’t identify, but
instructing them to be quiet seemed to just make them more intent on making the
noises. Deciding it would be best to leave xir soldiers to deal with it,
Commander Yldrik turned xir focus to the youngling xe had selected.
“What is your objective,” xe asked. Getting straight to the
point had seemed like the best method, but the human didn’t seem to comprehend.
“What is your objective? What are you here to accomplish?” xe repeated, seemingly surprising the human. Perhaps they hadn’t expected to be
confronted, or for the Ktynarians to be suspicious of them. Clearly the humans
had underestimated them.
“Well, I mean, a B would be great, but I’d settle for a C
too,” the human responded, something in their mouth gleaming slightly. Under
different circumstances Yldrik would have paid it more attention, but xe was
preoccupied deciphering what the human had said.
A bee was a creature from the humans’ home planet, and
apparently vital to their ecosystem. A sea however, was a large body of a
particular kind of water, and their planet seemed to be largely consisting of
it. Why would they possibly want more of it?
“It’s not my best subject,” they said, elevating an upper
part of their anatomy. Yldrik knew xe had been informed of the meaning behind
the movement, but xe had finally noticed something different about the human’s
teeth. Something worrying.
“Bare your teeth.” The human seemed surprised by the order,
but complied after a brief hesitation.
The sight that met xem was terrifying, even for someone with
as much experience as Yldrik.
“W-what are those?”
The human looked perplexed at first, but seemed to
understand what xe was referring to fairly quickly.
“You mean my braces?” the human asked before baring their
teeth further. A grin. At least that was what xe thought the action was named
by the humans. “It’s just metal. You see, my mouth had too many teeth in it, so
they got a bit out of order. Crooked and all, you know? So when I was about
thirteen my parents took me to a dentist who basically attached metal to them
to force them to stay in place. Cool, huh?”
The tone in which the human spoke did no justice to the
horrors that laid in their words. They spoke as if they didn’t realise how terrifying
this information was – no, come to think about it, they spoke as if they enjoyed the horrors they’d clearly been
“And this was necessary for your survival?” xe asked, seeing
no other reasonable explanation.
“No, no it’s just because it looks better,” the human said,
repeating the elevation of an upper part of their anatomy. They did something
else too, with an appendage of theirs, but Yldrik was done paying attention.
In record time, every single Ktynarian had vacated the ship,
control of which had been returned to the humans. Fortunately their ship had a
far higher maximum speed than the humans.
Their only chance at survival would clearly be to stay as
far away from the humans as possible. If they attacked, the Ktynarians would
have no other option than to flee. A species willing to do things like that to
their own young – for aesthetic reasons no less – was not a species one wanted
to go to war against.

how would aliens react to tattoos? like, some humans undergo large amounts of pain to have an image permanetly inked on their skin and sometimes the reason is no more than "eh, it looks cool"
“Human Tyler, you seem to have acquired pigmented particles under your skin.” Rytrinq began, trying to gain their attention at the same time as xe remained polite and considerate. “Do you wish time to cleanse yourself?” Xe asked, quite pleased with xemself for remembering the appropriate question.
“Fuck off, don’t be rude.” Human Tyler repeated, looking enraged for some reason. Granted, Rytrinq didn’t have the longest experience deciphering human mannerisms, but the wording didn’t leave much room for ambiguity. “This took a loot of time, and I’ll have you know I’m really happy with how it turned out.” They added, baffling Rytrinq further.
“You got dirt under your skin on purpose?” Xe asked, getting more confused each time Tyler spoke. Fortunately, it seemed they realised xe genuinely didn’t understand. Or at least they were willing to indulge him.
“It’s not dirt. It’s ink, and yes. It’s called a tattoo. It’s art.” They said, clearly still angry, though they did look slightly less terrifying, which xe decided to count as progress. Xe had heard that human art came in many forms, but xe had never heard of one involving the human body itself.
“Human Tyler, that is immensely intriguing. How is it made?” Xe asked, relieved when they seemed to realise it was a case of cultural confusion rather than xem being purposefully rude.
“Well, you go to a tattoo artist, and they make the design and then make a sort of template, I guess you could call it. Anyway, they put that on the place you want the tattoo, and it transfers a bit of ink so the artist’s got something to guide them. And then they have this machine, which is basically a bunch of needles that pierce the skin with ink. Which the artist use to sort of draw on the skin, leaving cool art like this.” Human Tyler said, adding a pointed look for the last part while showing off the art. Rytrinq was however too worried - and quite frankly terrified - to think too much about it.
“It pierces your skin and drags the ink machine through your skin? Is that not painful?” Xe asked
“What? No, no it goes up and down into the skin. If you drag it without the needles getting up you’ll end up with big scars. It does kind of hurt, but it’s not that bad.” They answered, clearly believing that to sound better. As if getting stabbed multiple times was no big deal.
“What purpose does it serve? Is it a hierarchical or sociological requirement?”
“No, some people don’t even like them. Think they look unprofessional or whatever bullshit like that. But it doesn’t really have a purpose.” Human Tyler answered with a brief elevation of their shoulder area.
“Then why do you put yourself through the pain?” Xe wondered. They had to have some reason after all, right?
“Eh, it looks cool. I mean, I just really like daffodils, always have. They’re cool.” They said, once again reminding Rytrinq that xe would never fully understand humans.
Nonnie, listen, I know this was meant as a message for me but I can’t help but think about Stiles being forgotten by everyone. Everyone except Derek who called Scott after a nightmare to check up on everyone and is more than a little concerned to be met with who? when he finally plucks up the courage to ask how Stiles is.
And so, somehow, he finds a way to send messages to Stiles in that dark, lonely place. He doesn’t actually know he’s sending them but when he dreams, he dreams of Stiles. Sees him, trapped and scared and vulnerable - although he can never reach him, no matter how fast he runs. Instead, he pictures himself writing messages on walls, on the inside of books, on discarded pieces of paper; all in the hopes Stiles might see them.
All the same message: I remember you.
Stiles begins to see them everywhere. They give him hope, hope he’s not lost. Hope that he’s not so easily forgotten as he had always feared, even before he fell down this rabbit hole. And yeah, he doesn’t know it’s Derek. Maybe it’s a trick, or maybe it’s his dad or Scott, but there is something, something, he can feel; something that boils his blood and soothes it in the same breath, and it reminds him so badly of Derek that he shakes with it, remembering the day Derek left. Remembering that night, when Derek slid through his bedroom window, still not gone (knocking first, Stiles noted fondly at the time) and hugged him. Just….hugged him. Tight.
Then, one night, Stiles catches the words being written on a door. He runs to it, tries desperately to grab the phantom hand writing as it goes along but he can’t and he wants to scream because the hand is warm but he can’t touch it, can’t even really feel it, but it’s there and it’s real and when he starts to cry, pushing his head against the door, the hand lingers long after it’s finished writing.
Meanwhile, back in his old loft, Derek dreams of the boy he reluctantly came to care about; tries to hold him - can’t see him or feel him but he can smell him. Stiles’ scent calls to him in a way not even Cora’s does, in a way Laura’s never did. It’s only then Derek realises, waking with a jolt, that Stiles isn’t just his anchor; isn’t just some endearing asshole who confuses him to no end, who makes him want to bare his teeth and throat at the same time, but something more.
And there, lying in his old bed covered in sweat and regret after regret, feeling utterly helpless, Derek whines for his mate.
Talk about lilo friendship:D! Like it changed a lot since in the beginning they hated each other lol
(Is this a thing now? LOL!)
I wouldn’t say ‘hated’, but maybe clashing personalities, probably. Louis’ is more vibrant and loud, whereas Liam’s is more chill and quiet. I can see how Louis’ could have been a bit too much for lil’ Lima to handle. As a quiet person myself, I know I have trouble getting along with loud people. It’s just something that happens.
I believe that with time (and due to their own bonds with Zayn) they started getting along better. Their songwriting surely must have helped. They have so much stuff together, too. Like Louis’ need to pull Liam’s leg★, or their ‘replay’ game★ (that they still play in interviews).
I wish they would stop hitting each other, though. More specifically for Louis to stop hitting Liam in the balls. That’s dangerous. ★ / ★ / ★ / ★
Testicle rupture wish aside, I believe their friendship is solid. It’s become more evident, in what we saw them interact way more without Zayn there, but love was always there. 1D’s friendships are what pulls people in.
what if aliens just dont understand the concept of taking non professional photos like selfies and sharing them on the internet? like "John-human, you see me all the time. I do not wish to take another 'selfie' with you."
John-human was not of the sub category photographer, though
they didn’t seem to be aware of that themself. No matter where they went, they
brought their little ‘smartphone’ with them, seemingly for the sole purpose of
photography. It was beyond irrational, especially considering that John-human
was well aware that they were of the sub category physicist.
“John-human, you see me all the time. I do not wish to
take another ‘selfie’ with you.” Cg’jlas said when the human suggested
another photograph being taken of the two. “I have important work to do, and
clearly you have a plethora of photographs of us together. What could you
possibly need another one for?” It was getting to the point of being irksome,
if xe were to be honest. None of the other humans seemed to consider the
behaviour odd though, so xe would have to tread carefully in case xe was
approaching cultural territory.
“It’s for my blog. I’ve got people asking to see another
picture of us together, and I thought this’d be a good place to take one. It looks
cool in here.” John-human said as if it was the most obvious thing in the
galaxy. To them it probably was.
“John-human, I am unfamiliar with some of these terms.” Xe
said, contracting xir twarikial tentacle in an obvious show of confusion. “What
is this ‘blog’, and why have other humans requested to see your photographs? Is
it not most common to enjoy photographs of humans who are well known in
general, or known to the human watching?”
“Oh, well, yeah? I guess, but we also like looking at pretty
people or cool people, or just pretty pictures, and it’s really you all the
fuss is about. They like seeing us together.” They said, elevating their
shoulders briefly. “A blog is like a content sharing site on the internet – you
remember when I told you about the internet, right?”
“Yes, it was quite… interesting. So you are not confused
about which sub category in which you belong?” Xe asked, hoping xe didn’t come
across as rude.
“You mean my job? No, I’m a physicist, why’d I be confused
about that?” They asked, doing what Cg’jlas had learned was referred to as a
“Because you seemed to be under the impression that you are
of the sub category photographer. I am relieved that there is no confusion,
John-human.” Xe said sincerely, making sure to have xir expression and posture
“What? No, they’re just selfies. Everyone takes them, it’s a
thing.” They said before proceeding to call one of their fellow humans over for
one of these ‘selfies’. They then moved on to show Cg’jlas how they ‘posted’
the photograph, and some they had already posted. It made very little sense,
but the fellow human seemed to be treat it as something normal, walking back to
their work station after agreeing that John-human could post their photograph.
They had asked to be ‘tagged’ in it, which xe had absolutely no idea what
meant, but xe didn’t particularly want to find out either. It would just have
to be another part of humans xe didn’t quite understand. It didn’t seem like an
important part after all, if a bit irksome at times when xe was trying to work
Honestly I don't think Jensen and Misha are social friends, just good work buddies, but they never socialize outside of work. I think Jensen like Misha, qirks and all, but he doesn't love Misha like a bestie, more like love him because he's familiar and part of the same show for almost a decade.
Well, of course you’re entitled to your opinion, but– one thing you should know is they dohang out outside of work:
They’ve gone to the race track together:
Took family vacations together
Gone out for ice cream with one another:
They’ve gone on fun little spa trips:
And after conventions, they go and hang out– looking altogether, friendly.
Not to mention, Misha was at Jensen’s wedding which sure– could just be a work-friend thing, but I know I would still want to be fairly close with someone if I was going to invite them to such a personal event.
Now, I am not arguing the fact that Jensen and Jared hang out more– of course they do. They live right beside one another, their kids go to the same school, they’ve known each other for longer than either of them have known Misha, but that still doesn’t mean that Misha can’t be super close with Jensen (and Jared) as well. Those two have talked about going out to dinner, just the two of them. They’ve talked about enjoying wine together (which is not something one normally does at work).
They have spoken of times where they have long, deep, emotional talks, and how much they enjoy those moments. That’s not something I normally do with my “work buddies”.
The fact is, they are great friends (if not more), whether or not they live near each other. My best friend of over twenty years has lived in Colorado for most of that time– but that doesn’t mean I love her any less than I did the friend who lived up the road from me. I cared for them equally, we all just had different types of friendships– but that didn’t make them any less than the other.
You don’t need to think that they’re in a poly relationship– that’s a matter of opinion; but to ignore just how much they do care about one another, how much they enjoy each other’s company– to write off their very deep friendship because of some physical distance between their homes, and not as much publicized evidence as others might have, is to completely disregard and disrespect things that they’ve specifically said about each other.
Jensen being best friends with Misha doesn’t make him any less Jared’s best friend.
It just doesn’t.
I don’t know why it always has to be a competition.
What if humanity is the only one ridiculous enough for homophones in their languages. they're so impractical and confusing why this
(This short is brought to you by the wonderful and amazing @pomrania who’s graciously offered to help me answer the backlog of asks. Please have a look at her blob! You won’t regret it)
“English is a confusing language!” “Truth.” “Why did people from England, of all the places on your planet, decide
that two words should sound the same but mean completely different
things?!” “Um. Well. You see, it’s not just that one language….” “What.”
“There’s only so many sounds that we can make, after all. Of course some words are going to end up sounding the same.”
“There is no ‘of course’ about it! And I’ve seen tables of speech sounds
across various human languages, you have enough different ones to avoid
“So your languages don’t have any words that sound the same?”
“If they do, it’s because they mean the same thing, just in different contexts! None of this… ‘BARK’ nonsense!”
“Hey, 'bark’ makes perfect sense. You’re never going to run into a situation where you won’t know which is meant.”
“But it… why… it shouldn’t even be like that in the first place! And you said MORE languages have that as well?!”
“I can’t speak for all of them, I only know a bit of Spanish, but, yeah.
Seems to be in every human language, from what I’ve heard.”
“Why not? And I guess it means that puns are a lot easier.”
