theres-no-meaning-to-it

a good man is hard to find
  • what people think that means: there's not a lot of good men out there
  • what it actually means: the sole requirement to become a good man is mastery of stealth
  • What she says: I'm fine
  • What she means: There's an unused Arceus event in Pokémon Heart Gold and Soul Silver that involes a place called the Sinjoh Ruins and it shows a freaky montage of real-life pictures and Arceus literally creates one of the Creation Trio out of thin air. It literally takes you to the ruins just to show you its true power. It creates a baby legendary Pokémon before your eyes. It literally gives you a baby legendary dragon the size of a school. What the fuck. Why were the gen 4 games so goddamn cryptic but badass at the same time. You get a baby god as a reward for coming. The fuck

You see a sentence written in cyrillic. Some of the letters are familiar. You see the meaning shimmering underneath the surface. You almost grasp it, but it slips away. The letters on the page mock you silently.

You know this Czech word. You’ve already learnt it in Polish. It is not the same word. It is a grave insult. Your slavic friends are shocked and embarassed for you when they hear you speak it.

There is a sentence in Croatian. There is a sentence in Serbian. There is a sentence in Bosnian. They are all the same sentence.

You have to write about your day in Slovak. You spend the night polishing the draft. You fail your assigment. It’s written in Czech. You don’t know Czech.

P is not what it seems. You have to remember that.

The Croatian sentence does not mean what the Bosnian sentence means. They both mean the same in Serbian.

That word has a diminutive. The diminutive has its own diminutive. The diminutive of the diminutive also has a diminutive. Nobody knows what the final diminutive of a word is. Some say the knowledge had been lost in centuries past and matrioshkas are the echo, the tangible warning left for us to remember. No living creature should hold the means of diminishing something into nonexistence.
Others say you may still find some of them in old soviet textbooks, if you dare to look in abandoned schools of Chernobyl.

Someone is speaking to you. Is that a he or a she? You aren’t sure. It’s an abstract concept. Why does it have gender.

You see a word in a dictionary. It has seventeen letters and only one vowel. You close the dictionary very carefully not looking at the phonetic transcription. The shape of it haunts you in your sleep. You wake up face damp with tears, a bitter taste on your tongue. The clock blinks 3:03AM. You do not dare look up that word again.

This word means the same thing in the five slavic languages you’re familiar with. You use it in the sixth one. That word does not exist in this language. It never did. There is now a word-shaped void in the fabric of this language. The natives look at you uneasily. There is a new quality to the silence and your palms start to sweat.

H is not H. H is not H. H is not H. H is not H.

One day you flip through your dictionary. A page is missing. What was the word? You can’t remember. There is pressure building at the back of your head. The clock blinks 3:03AM.

You write my name is in cyrillic. There are shadows dancing on the walls. They grow longer with each letter you write down. It is not cyrillic you’re using. You keep writing my name is. The shadows now bleed from the tip of your pen. It’s irrelevant. You need to remember the right letters.

N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not… If only you could remember the letters. The letters are important. What was it, that wasn’t N?

There are nine different prefixes you can add to a verb to change its meaning. There are fifty three different suffixes you have to add to a verb to make it work. In the end the only thing left of the original is a vague shape of one of its middle consonants. You can feel the anguish radiating from the verb’s mutialted form. A desperate sob escapes through your clenched teeth. You’re so, so sorry, you didn’t meant to. You didn’t. It doesn’t matter.

You now read a text in Russian. You’ve never learnt Russian. Why are you reading that text? The words burn your eyes, the meaning searing your mind.

There’s a shot of vodka in front of you. You don’t drink alcohol. You don’t care. All existence is meaningless, your soul’s in eternal pain. A broken matrioshka lays at your feet. There is no salvation, she says boring into your eyes. You open your mouth to answer, but there is only a burst of harsh rustle. It dies in whispering echoes a moment later. Your glass is empty again.

  • What she says: I'm fine.
  • What she means: There's unused animation for Umbra peeing and a dog camera mod that wasn't implemented, even more there's is a cat camera mod and animation for cats climbing around pipes in a train station in Niflheim whose a map wasn't implemented either, also there's the twitter picture of Gladio playing basketball when will I get shirtless Gladio basket minigame? One of the buildings in Insomnia has a football/soccer field inside. Why would they put that and leave it unused if it wasn't to make it useful later? When will we know why Cid and Regis fought? We never see past entries on the lovers notebook. Ignis mentions that Pryna is always with Luna while Umbra does deliveries. When will we interact with her? does she have the same powers as Umbra or can she do different things? when will we see how Luna awakened Ramuh or Titan, Shiva telling her about the covenants at age 13, her struggle and suffering because of said covenants, she traveling to Lestallum, the full extension of her powers like the barrier she raises in the omen trailer? We never saw Galahd nor Libertus again even though there's a lot of unexplained lore around the place like their music, tattoos, hairstyles, patterns, dishes and there's even concept art of the place they have a river where Noctis could go fishing. What parts of Ardyn's past was erased from history? How did Ifrits betrayal play? When and how did he make a pact with Ardyn? Tabata said the team was working on a massive unannounced update and there's so many things to expand on the game what in the heavens are they working on also what could Ignis DLC be about that is so closely related to the history of the game, the concept art screams heartbreak and I'm not ready there's so many unexplained things I-
The Winchesters watching Sherlock
  • *Scene with gay subtext*
  • Dean: Oh come on! These guys are like so in love with each other!
  • Sam: ...
  • Dean: I mean... The way they stare at each other! This isn't heterosexual! How can John not see that he's in love with Sherlock?
  • Sam: Dean...
  • Dean: I mean, there's nothing wrong about being bisexual. And there's nobody who cares for him like Sherlock does. Love isn't about genders, right? Why is he so scared of being in love with him?
  • Sam: ...
  • Sam: Do you have any idea what you are talking about?

One of the first scenes of 4x01 opened with the nickname “Wanheda” getting thrown at Clarke, an unfriendly reminder of all the blood on her hands. The final scene of the episode then closed with Bellamy using her old nickname, “Princess” and I’m positive it was deliberate. At first glance you’d think it was just a little fanservice thing they randomly tossed in for us, but when you look a little closer you’ll see there was actually meaning to it. There’s a reason they opened with one nickname and closed with another. A reminder to Clarke that no matter what, she’ll never be the Commander of Death in his eyes.

Results of last night’s stream, and one of several title pages for the DOFP PDF! These will include text later!

I dunno if I will post all of the finished textless pages here or not, but at least wanted to give an idea of how they’ll look!

anonymous asked:

Is it true that there's a new military policy meaning the Korean members can be enlisted at any time now?

Yes:

“Celebrities will no longer be able to delay enlistment in the military. They’ll serve whenever called. That means any random time after age 18. Right now celebrities usually delay enlistment till age 30. Korean Military Manpower Administration now asking companies for information on all male artists born between Jan 1, 1980 and Dec 31, 1999. The change is in response to public demands for equality with regard to army enlistment and service. Some online reactions mention that there are sons of politicians/businessmen who delay enlistment too and that should change as well.”

I’m curious how Korean companies are going to handle this because letting Korean members of their groups enlist early puts them in a tough situation. Groups last 5-7 years (at least until their contracts end) so companies are trying to promote them during first few years as much as it’s possible. 

Recently NCT Ten who’s Thai went to Thailand to register because just like Bambam mentioned at one of the recent fansign events they might have to enlist. If you volunteer you serve for 6 months. If you don’t, you take part in lottery. If you get picked you have to serve for 2 years.

Really Cool True Crime Websites

I’m often asked what websites/blogs I use to study for my blog. I’ve decided to compile a wee list of my favorite sites where I get most of my inspiration and, sometimes, facts :)

1. Murderpedia.com

This site is an amazing resource for anyone interested in true crime, and I cannot recommend it enough if you are looking for new content to read. The site is really easy to use, and the cases are sorted alphabetically, making it simple to look up a particular killer or just to browse.

2. Hellbeasts.com

This site is maintained by a dedicated writer who regularly posts about little-known crimes and cases. The cases are categorised by the type of crime (Murder, Child Abuse, Animal Cruelty etc) as well as providing links to news items. I really like this site for when I want to find out about little-known cases, and there is a section dedicated to abused and vulnerable children.

3. HistoricalCrimeDetective.com

This site is managed by a published true crime writer who is passionate about “forgotten” crimes and cold cases. You can easily spend hours reading through the posts, and the fact these cases are somewhat older and unsolved makes this site invaluable if you want to research cold cases/historical crimes.

4. CrimeDocumentary.com

This is a newish site that offers hundreds of true crime documentaries for free! The sheer amount of content means theres something for everyone to enjoy, and the docs are organised into categories so its super easy to navigate and peruse. Some of the docs are not in English, but I’m pretty sure subtitles are available for most of them.
