Your favourite HP m/m ships 2/?: Regulus x Barty Jr
uhm, this might not be one of your favourites, since this is requested by, well, me. i just really have a thing for young soft death eaters and a lot of angst and sorrow, so regulus black and barty crouch junior will always be one of my favourite pairs.
(tag me in EVERYTHING that exist on this couple, please)
barty is a ravenclaw student the year below regulus.
they could’ve gone through they’re lives without ever even spoken to eachother, but they don’t.
because barty happens to beat an old record of regulus in transfiguration and regulus can’t believe it.
so he seeks barty up, corner the one year younger boy when he’s alone just to get a look at mcgonagall’s new little wonder child.
and barty is arrogant and besserwisser, but he’s also charismatic and has that kind of strong presence and fire in him that makes regulus think about sirius.
and in regulus, barty for the first time sees an equal, someone who’s really worthy of his time, someone who’s not childish and dumd as his classmates.
they discuss philosophy together, they read poetry for each other and they talk about their families, they share their deepest secrets and their biggest dreams. they talk about a future. they laugh and they cry.
they taste each others lips, feel each others soft skin, let their fingers caress each others hair.
it’s all a big secret. their family’s would never understand and regulus can’t loose his family, not like sirius did.
so they always meet in secret, never speak in public.
times get darker.
it’s regulus fault that both of them join the death eaters.(at least regulus will for ever blame himself for dragging barty in to that crap)
one does it because it’s what expected of him. the other one because it’s the last thing that’s expected of him. really, both do it because all they really want is their parents to notice them, finally pay some god damn attention to them and love them.
maybe they also do it because of the tense somewhat exciting electricity that’s in the air. because time’s are a changing and they want to be a part of something, something bigger. and they want to do it together.
if it’s regulus fault that they join, it’s bartys fault that they stay.
it scares them, because they both know that they’re on their way to lose each other. they’re slowly growing apart and they no longer tell each other everything.
however, they never stop loving each other. both clinging to old memories, old versions of the other. clinging to the hope that things soon will change, and that the other will change with it.
but they never get time for any change, because regulus died.
As my Portuguese teacher puts it, Portuguese is the queen of contractions. Take a look:
in (em) + the (o, a, os, as) em + o = no (singular masculine) em + a = na (singular feminine) em + os = nos (plural masculine) em + as = nas (plural feminine)
Eu estou no correio / I’m in the post office Os livros estão nas caixas / The books are in the boxes
other em contractions (facultative): em + um = num em + uma = numa em + uns = nuns em + umas = numas
- - - - - - - - - -
of (de) + the (o, a, os, as) de + o = do (singular masculine) de + a = da (singular feminine) de + os = dos (plural masculine) de + as = das (plural feminine)
Gostei da foto / I liked the foto Estou falando dos cachorros, moleque! / I’m talking about the dogs, kid! (a direct translation: I’m speaking of the dogs)
*Side note: De or a contraction of de always follows the verb gostar (to like). Example: Eu gosto de você. Você gosta de mim. Gostaria de saber se você namoraria comigo. (I like you. You like me. I would like to know if you’d date me.)
other de contractions (facultative): de + um = dum de + uma = duma de + uns = duns de + umas = dumas de + este = deste de + esta = desta de + estes = destes de + estas = destas de + esse = desse de + essa = dessa de + esses = desses de + essas = dessas
- - - - - - - - - -
for (por) + the (o, a, os, as) por + o = pelo por + a = pela por +os = pelos por + as = pelas
Obrigada pela comida / Thank you for the food
- - - - - - - - - -
to/at (a) + the (o, a, os, as) a + o = ao a + a = à a + os = aos a + as = às
Eu vou à escola / I’m going to school Vamos aoBrasil / Let’s go to Brazil
*Side note: almost all countries have gender in Portuguese (e.g. o Brasil, os Estados Unidos, a China, etc.)
- - - - - - - - - -
Para (colloquial contractions) para + o = pro para + a = pra para + as = pras para + os = pros
Eu vou te levar pro Rio / I’m going to take you to Rio (de Janeiro)
*Side note: States and cities that are geographical landscapes (like river, bay, etc.) have o/a in front. (e.g. eu moro no Rio de Janeiro, mas minha mãe é da Bahía)
I HATE HIM SO MUCH, PLEASE SOMEONE HIT HIS RIDICULOUSLY HANDSOME FACE WITH A GUITAR.
I love Jihoon to the moon and back, he is my all BUT this awful human being called Kim Mingyu and his cute smile always ruins everything. He’s dumd, unhygienic, adorable, handsome, funny and cute but I don’t like him. I really don’t like him even if I always save his pictures, I only do that because I need to see him to hate him even more, that’s all. I don’t like him, I HATE YOU MINGYU.
I don’t know why people assume that Marilyn wasn’t talented because she played a few dumb blonde roles, she was an amazing comedienne and those roles were very contrasting with her real self. I guess because Marilyn played a dumb blonde so well people forget how hard it is. Marilyn actually played quite a few diverse roles in her career, you should check them out!
The Asphalt Jungle (1950)
Clash By Night (1952)
Don’t Bother To Knock (1952)
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)
River Of No Return (1954)
There’s No Business Like Show Business (1954)
Bus Stop (1956)
The Prince and The Showgirl (1957)
The Misfits (1961)
Something’s Got To Give (1962)
Before anyone states, “Why is Gentlemen Prefer Blondes in there?!” if you watch the whole film, the conclusion comes about with everyone realizing that Marilyn’s character, Lorelei is really smart.
Marilyn reportedly suggested the memorable line, “I can be smart when I Want to. But most men don’t like it.”
Most of her earlier roles were dumb blonde co-starring parts,
