tips for writing bilingual characters
  • there are different types of bilinguals
    • the All Around: speaks, reads, and writes both languages pretty well
    • the Conversational: one language is stronger than the other; can speak the other language a lot better than they read/write it (a lot of kids of immigrants are this type)
    • the High Schooler: understands what’s being said to them in the other language, can’t really speak it
  • don’t have your characters randomly drop words from their other language mid-sentence around people who don’t speak it lol
    • languages are a mindset thing. like personally if i’m around english-speakers, i’m speaking english and i don’t really switch to my other language (which is portuguese)
    • so like if you’re writing a bilingual character who speaks spanish and have them say something like “hey chad let’s go to the biblioteca” to an english speaker i’ll probably spend 5 minutes laughing and then close your story lmao
  • exception: the character is speaking in their weaker language and forgot a word (”where are the…? uh… llaves…. keys! keys, where are they?”)
  • otherwise really the only time your character should be randomly switching languages mid-sentence is if they’re talking to another bilingual
  • like i don’t speak spanish but i’ve legit never heard a spanish speaker say “ay dios mio” to gringos lmao
  • conversations between two bilingual people can take a few different forms:
    • Pick One: they pick one language and kinda stick with it for the whole conversation (a conversation i might have with my portuguese-speaking mom: ”you okay?” “yeah, i’m good. how’re you?” “i’m fine, but your dad-”)
    • Back-and-Forth: someone says something in one language, the other person replies in the other (”tudo bem?” “yeah, i’m good. how’re you?” “tou bem, mas o seu pai-”)
    • Combo: they speak a combo of the two languages, a popular example being spanglish, though basically every bilingual has their own combo language (”tudo bem?” “sim, tou bem. how’re you?” “i’m fine, mas o seu pai-”)
  • when in doubt: just ask a bilingual to look at your stuff and tell you if anything sounds weird

what really happened during s5
they reunited and ducked out to go on a space roadtrip :DDD

mac10514  asked:

Can I ask for some cute Stephew facts??

Oh god you guys are srsly testing my memory recall skills here.

-Matt said he wants Stephanie to be the happiest girl in the world.

-Since there’s now been two videos of it, it’s a safe assumption Stephanie regularly wears Matt’s jackets.

-Matt said he spent their entire wedding trying not to cry.

-They take holiday pictures with Skip.

-Matt said that, when he started doing YouTube, Stephanie had given him the best advice and he still follows it.

-Stephanie thinks they work better as a team than seperate.

-Matt would follow Steph home in college in an attempt to woo her and this somehow didn’t result in a restraining order.

-They were long distance for about 18 months after college.

-They’re turning 30/31 and still give each other hickies.

-They’ve taken yoga together.

-Matt is jealous of Mr. Darcy (a fictional character) because Stephanie likes him so much.

-Matt can, has, and (judging by the try not to cringe challenge) absolutely will, with no prompting, pick Stephanie up.

-Stephanie will anthropomorphize food and guilt Matt into finishing his meals.

-Stephanie got Matt into nuggets, and Matt got Stephanie into pepperoni pizza.

-Matt said he was first attracted to Stephanie because of her work ethic.

Yikes yes sorry I’m afraid I’m starting to scrape the bottom of the barrel of facts, but I hope these are good enough!

Should You Play Darkest Dungeon?

Pros

•Absolutely gorgeous art style. Actual animation hovers around 3~4 frames but you likely won’t notice due to the camera work.

•Character design is Great and monster design is A+

•A very enthusiastic narrator with a great voice.

•Amazing musical score that sets the mood perfectly.

•Gameplay is surprisingly deep through a simple inventory management interface and skill screen. It IS a nightmare for people that can’t stand to throw things away and make room for new items, though.

•Beating a boss or even just a tough encounter feels like an actual accomplishment.

•The game auto saves after pretty much every action so there’s no risk of lost progress if you have to quit in the middle of a dungeon delve.

•Has all the graphical demands of MSPaint and can be run on Windows 7 or higher.

•No demands for fast reflexes or split-second decision making, since it’s RPG-style combat.

•You can make up whatever names or headcanons for each character that you feel like.

Cons

•Can be punishingly difficult for all the wrong reasons due to the prevalent RNG behavior.

•A run can be made or broken by nothing more than a few bad dice rolls or miss-called coin tosses.

•Minimization of RNG (investing in equipment, removing negative behaviors, etc) requires heavy in-game investments, making it difficult in other ways. Some may revel in this difficulty, but it’s not for everyone.

•The game auto saves after pretty much every action, so once a decision is made there is no chance to go back. You’re stuck with your choices forever.

•Some scenery and monster attacks can be nauseating for some. The game runs very deep with body horror in all its forms, from physical mutilation to monstrous mutation, and attacks featuring projectile vomit are very common. Granted, the puke isn’t detailed, but still. the sounds

•Giant grubs, maggots, spiders, snails, and mosquitos make up a portion of the monster encounters, which can be a deal breaker for some.

•The narrator can get grating at times, especially if one of his lines comes at a time that just salts a fresh wound.

Today, this Joker trailer is officially one year old. 

Last year, I remember shaking and wailing as I watched this. I remember having to pause the video and try to calm my heartbeat when I saw my clowns kissing for the first time in live action. I remember how excited we all were, how we watched and rewatched and rewatched again. Good times. Relieve them with me for a second? Cheers to the best trailer to come out of Suicide Squad in a plethora of great trailers.
