they repeat each other's name so. often

My grany and I were talking to each other on the subway on our way home. She’s often babysitting kids and she told me one of them, a little boy, plays games like me. She asked me what’s the name of my favorite game (“you know, the one you write about in your blog”).
The whole conversation was in French, my grany knows nothing about English so when I said “Mass Effect” she had trouble repeating it.
She said “Mess Effec” several times until she got it right. Made me laugh. 
And the cutest thing is that afterwards she said: “I’ll remember it. I’ll tell him ‘this is the game my granddaughter is playing so you should play it as well!’ and he’ll play it, you’ll see. He listens to me!”

Jimin AU - The letters

Originally posted by suga-com

Imagine: Jimin receiving fan-letters. A certain type, catching his eyes.

Genre: fluff

Jimin made way to the Sorting room after practice and eagerly waited for his fan letters. He loved reading them, one especially being his favourite. Each week, Jimin would receive a fan-letter; of course, he’d get probably round about 100 a day, but there was always one he never failed to be excited for.

The envelope would always be matte black. Unlike the other letter which were pink, blue, green, orange…

At first, when he picked up his pile of letters, he thought the black coloured one would be the horrible one. But, to his surprise; it held the sweetest words.

A new matte black envelope would find itself into the pile every week. Jimin loved reading it.

Saying a short farewell to the members, Jimin exited the Sorting room and went to his office where he would be able to read the letters peacefully.

He scattered out the letters and scanned the pile for the black one. A soft smile appeared when he found it. Picking it up, Jimin eyed it carefully.

He wedged his stubby finger in the crease and pulled it open. The envelope would always smell of vanilla. It never failed to put a smile on his face.

Eat up, sunshine. Don’t waste the opportunity to taste the wonders of this world.

-Y/N

Jimin grinned at the letter, in fact, he couldn’t call it a letter. They were just small, cute little notes. Like the kind of sticky notes you’d find on BigHit studio walls. But this felt more personal.

This name rolled off the tip of his tongue like melted chocolate.

“Y/N….” Jimin would find himself repeating this name over and over again. Even the members complained about it when they slept.

“Y/N…” He paused, picking up a small cardboard box and slipping the envelope next to the rest of the others. It was a small ocean of black letters, neatly wedged in between each other

“what a beautiful name” Jimin skimmed each envelope he had in his box; he had 10 so far. He picked up a random one and read the small note written inside.

You should smile more often, it makes the heart of this world beat ten times faster

-Y/N

He picked out another one

I love it when you laugh, do you know that?

-Y/N

And another

Stay warm, it’s winter.

-Y/N

They were just so simple that Jimin loved it. He loved simple things. Things that made him smile without thinking. He loved the letters. There was a small tap on his office door and he tucked the envelope back into the box and told the person to come in.

“Hyung, one of your letter was in my pile” Jungkook poked his head through the door and wafted the letter in front of Jimin who nodded, taking it.

“Ah, thankyou Kookie" The maknae smiled and walked out, leaving the office quiet again.

It surprised Jimin that this wasn’t an opened envelope. But a nicely sealed one. The note inside made his heart sink in the best possible way.

One day, I will be able to say these words to your face. One day, I will be able to see your smile in person. That one day will be the best day of my life. Because on that day, I will finally meet my friend. You

I don't need a premiere to show you an opening night

Third part of actor AU, because my classes are getting more and more boring. Mostly jeanmarco this time. 

  • Once, during filming the scene after 104th Squad’s first battle, Ymir’s actress mistakes Christa and Armin and propose the marriage to the boy instead. He’s so amused, that he agrees, asking, if he should wear the white gown.
  • Marco’s actor is a little shit. He and Jean’s actor are actually the biggest dorks in the crew, who constantly mess with the lines. Like, during the famous ‘You’re not strong Jean’ scene, Marco’s actor goes like, “You’re not sexy Jean. That’s why you can understand how the weeaboos feel”. Jean’s actor dares him to repeat this phrase during the following night and they both end up laughing and teasing each other like huge jerks.
  • Annie and Mikasa’s actresses often practice their stunts or do exercises together. They friendly compete with each other, trying to see, which one will be able to do more dangerous stunts and more exhausting training.
  • Sasha’s actress hates potatoes, so she’s like, “Not this shit again”, when her fans keep giving them to her. She has nothing against getting sweets though.
  • When Jean is shouting Marco’s name (the scene, when Marco’s takes the titan away from Jean, who’s trying to get 3DMG), his friend accidentally replies, “Polo”.
  • During filming the scene of finding Marco corps, he and Jean cause problems too. It all starts just right, but when Jean comes to the part “Marco is that you?”, his friend walks on the plan in polo T-shirt and, eating chips, replies, “Nope, I’m right here”.
  • On valentines day, Marco asks Jean if he would be his other half. Jean agrees noticing, that Marco isn’t half bad.
  • Jean and Marco were firstly planned to be sitting next to each other during the scenes filmed in classes, but they were holding hands, touching each other or laughing too much, so the director changed their places.
  • Once, during filming the scene when Jean says, that he loves Mikasa’s hair, Marco pretends to be jealous and stares at his friend angrily murmuring “I’ve got beautiful black hair as well, dumb-ass” under his breath. 
  • Pixis’s actor winks at Annie’s actress, after saying, that he wouldn’t mind being eaten by a beautiful titan lady.
  • During the casting, Eren’s actor jokingly shouts, “I’m gonna kill every single one of them!”, after he sees the other actors, who tries to get the role as well. 
  • Carla Yeager was played by the same actress as Trisha Elric from FullMetal Alchemist.
  • When Armin and Jean are practicing the scene on the tree and Armin goes with his “People, who can’t throw something important away, can never hope to change anything” line, Jean takes Marco’s boxers out of his pocket and lets them fly majestically with a find. He sights staring at them, and then turns back to Armin and asks him with a sad look on his face “Am I ready to change the world now or do I have to get rid of the other pair of his pants as well…?”. Armin’s too busy laughing, to give a reply.
  • Connie keeps singing “Mikasa and Sasha sitting in a tree
    K-I-S-S-I-N-G” or the version with Ymir and Bertholdt during filming scenes in forest. He tries to sing it to Jean and Armin as well, but Marco, who plays some minor character now, punches him jokingly and tells him, to shut up.

flyest-nihilist  asked:

Od! I have questions! So, I play magic casually, and I know the basic rules of the basic game, but I don't know anything about commanders or EDH, and what does it stand for?

Commander (also known as EDH, or “Elder Dragon Highlander”) is a Magic format that is pretty popular!

The basic premise is that you build a deck with a Legendary creature (or in a few instances, Planeswalker) at the helm to lead your deck. Cards that you use in your deck MUST share the color identity of your commander.

For example, take Intent:

As you can see, Intet has a color identity of Blue, Red, and Green, so you can ONLY use Blue, Red, Green, and colorless cards in the deck (artifacts and other colorless cards do not have a color identity, so any commander deck can use them). Note that a Commander’s color and color identity are not the same. For this, I’ll use Alesha as an example.

While Alesha is a Red card, as denoted by her mana cost, because she has the White and Black mana symbols in her textbox, she also has those colors as part of her color identity, meaning that you can use Red, White, Black, and colorless cards in a Commander deck with Alesha as the commander.

Now that we have colors and color identity out of the way, there are a few other things to take note:

-You start the game with 40 life rather than 20.

-A commander deck is 100 cards in total including the commander, meaning, that you’ll have 99 cards in the deck, and the commander off to the side in what’s known as “The Command Zone”.

-The Command Zone is a special zone where your commander sits waiting to be called upon. You may cast your commander from there any time you normally could just like any other card. Should they go anywhere else other than the battlefield (your library, hand, graveyard, exile, etc.) you may choose to return them to the command zone instead. However, every time that they return there, they cost an additional two generic mana to bring back. 

-Other than basic lands, you are not allowed to repeat card names in your deck. So no more playsets for you. This makes Commander what is known as a “singleton” format. Some people who start Commander after playing regular 60-card formats with 4-card playsets may consider this a drawback, but it serves to make each individual game different and exciting. Besides, a well crafted EDH deck will more often than not be fairly consistent anyway.

-Commander has its own banlist that you can find here. However, it’s important to note that Commander is mostly a casual format, so any house rules you and your playgroup come to an agreement on can take precedence over the official banlist.

-The last bit of info about Commander is that it’s primarily a group format, which means you’ll be sharing the battlefield with at least two other people, and at most as many as you want! (Just know that the more people that participate, the longer the game may take. Four players is generally considered a good cap.)

If you’re looking to get into Commander and don’t know where to start in picking who should lead your deck, Wizards of the Coast sells preconstructed decks with different commanders and color combinations to choose from every year! You can find the commanders and decklists that were made last year here! From there, you can take apart the deck and add new cards as you see fit, provided the deck stays at 100 cards with the commander and doesn’t break out of the commander’s color identity. 

If you’re not interested in any of those, see what Legendary creatures you have laying around that you liked the story of, or think have really cool abilities, and start there! Go through your collection and see what you may have laying around. You may have a really cool spell or creature that you never considered using in 60-card because it cost too much mana or was fighting for space in a deck you already have and didn’t make the cut.

Commander is a great format to use all of the big spells and creatures that you never considered using before, so it’s well worth it to try it out and finally dust off all those flashy cards you may have laying around!
