three of a kind [1]

3

I’ve read quite a few horror tales in my time, and I’ve got a certain fondness for Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Lewis Stevenson. 

There’s something about man seeking to become his best self, only to unleash his inner demons and desires, that truly fascinates me.

I also like to think that Jekyll is not so innocent. He uses the identity of Hyde as an excuse for his immoral behaviours so not to feel any consequential guilt.

“If it wasn’t me in control, it’s not my fault.”

Jekyll is a truly evil character, and his potion is just a ploy to satiate his needs for violence and chaos.

There are three kinds of Starco fans right now:


Fan 1: 
I don’t care,i have a life anyway.

Fan 2: OMG, Marco is SO happy with Jackie, but i shipp Starco so hard,and Star loves him, but she just don’t know that rigth now. I… i don’t know what to do… help, please…

Fan 3: JACKIE LYNN THOMAS YOU ARE A DEAD WOMAN!!!!!

Korean Grammar Lesson 1-1: Past tense

*This is based on official Korean High schoolers’ grammar textbook.

*Before getting started:

-pre-ending affix: affixes that are added after the root but before the ending. In Korean, we use these affixes to express tense or honorific expressions. (Actually I made this term up, so you’d better not be bound by it and just use it for understanding.)

1. Past tense 

There are two things you must know to express past tense: pre-ending affixes that are used for changing the tense of predicates and pre-noun endings that are used for modifiers. 

   1-1. Pre-ending affixes

There are three kinds of affixes for past tense. First ones are ‘-았-/-었-’, and you can choose between them according to the form of the verb. For example:

어제 친구를 만났다.I met a friend yesterday.

This is an example of changing the verb ‘만나다meet’ into ‘만났다met’ using ‘-았-’.

→ 만나- + -았- + 다 = 만났다

지난주에 그 길을 건넜다.I crossed the road last week.

→ 건너- + -었- + 다 = 건넜다

Second are ‘-았었-/-었었-’. These mean almost the same as the first, but they imply broken relationship between past and present. For example:

지난달에는 이곳에 꽃이 많이 피었었다.Last month many flowers bloomed here.

Many flowers bloomed here last month but there are no flowers now.

→ 피- + -었었- + -다 = 피었었다

Third one is ‘--’. It is used when you want to bring an old story that you experienced to the listener/reader. Also, it is commonly used with endings ‘-라’ and ‘ㄴ데’, which also imply telling things that was experienced.

그가 노래를 잘 부르더라.He sang a song well.

In the sentence, the speaker/writer saw ‘him’ singing well and is going to tell the listener/reader what he/she saw.

→ 부르- + -더라 = 부르더라


 

In next lesson I’ll complete explaining the past tense. If you have any question, just comment here or send me a message! And if you want to have an explanation on something about Korean, just ask me too. Good luck with your study!

mariposaheart  asked:

What three things make you happiest?

1) Simple & low-key acts of everyday kindness. Flawed & honest love. People who forgive. (Three things, but they’re the same.)

2) A five year old girl explaining to me important stuff about the world.

3) The marvellous & warming sun of spring above the city today.

Three kinds of lies:

1. Lyra @ Winn: I lied to you, because my brother was in danger and I just wanna protect him.

Okay. She loves her brother, she lied to Winn and she used him. Not cool but at least, we know that she´s not selfish. But Winn is right. She should tell him sooner. He would help her. No doubt. Maybe next time she´ll be smarter. We dind´t saw them much together, it´s new couple so we don´t know more about them. Especially about Lyra. Let´s hope she will be good girlfriend for our cinnamon roll Winn. He deserve a world.

2. Monel @ Kara: I lied to you, because I was scared that you wouldn´t like me for who I used to be.

Well… boy lied to girl because he was scared that pretty girl doesn’t like morons. And he was right. I´m not saying that now, Monel is bad person. He might changed and for sure, he changed because of Kara. That´s sweet. That can be love. But what isn´t love is acting like an asshole and didn´t respect opinions and decisions of my girlfriend. Am I right? Another thing: they´re fighting more than loving. I mean… yeah, every good couple must have some fights. For sure. But it´s kind of shitty when most of their fights ends with break-up, “not talking with each other” or something similar. But now, I hope that he´ll be fight for her with his whole heart and soul because she deserve something special and everything best. I´m not sure if he´s best for her but he can prove it. Well… he should.

Healthy relationship between two people is: Arguing together, have different opinions but still accept each other. Find a compromise and deal with problems as adults, as couple, as a team. 

⇩ ⇩ ⇩

3. Maggie @ Alex: I lied to you about my coming out, because I didn´t want hurt you. I want it be better for you. I want best for you...

Is this selfish? No! Is this protection of yourself? No, this is protection of someone who you care about more than yourself. Is this lying about being someone else? Maybe, little bit. She said that her parents are cool with her be a lesbian. They´re not. But she said it, because she wanted encourage Alex to come out, for her own good. Alex deserve the best. Maggie is not perfect but at least she care about feelings and opinions of her woman.

anonymous asked:

🌚

Ahaha, starting with the personal ones already. I have too many crushes because I’m an easily wooed person. Seriously. If you like literature, have a great sense of humor and/or taste in music, and are kind of dorky/passionate about things, chances of me having a crush on you are above 80%.

But anyway, I’ll talk about my current three. Crush #1 is kind of dorky, but in the best ways. She’s so cool and sometimes I get intimidated to talk to her because she’s so funny and I want to be funny, too, but I also don’t want to look like I try too hard??? It’s a struggle. Anyway, she’s great and I wish I could get a read on her interest better because I’ve misconstrued things in the past and I don’t want to make things awkward. ><

Crush #2 is also funny and he likes memes and it’s more of a fan-girl/friend crush than anything super serious. You know, one of those that’s mostly crushing on how cool of a person they are and half-wishing you could be them. He has amazing taste in music and literature and is A+++++ in general. 

Crush #3 is a girl I’ve had classes with at college and she’s so COOL. Her hair is short and purple and she’s so passionate about web development. I love hearing her talk about it. She’s also dorky but she wears it better than I do (ahahaha kill me). I realized I liked her when she made a terrible programming pun during a stats lecture and omggggg. We see each other on campus and she always talks to me which makes me an awkward mess because I’m not good at IRL socializing so I never know what to do and dhfkgjklewkljfkjrl.

THIS IS SO LONG omgggg I promise I’m not obsessed in a creepy way, I just get really caught up in people and I like noticing little things about them that make me realize “wow, this person is really amazing and I’m so glad I met them.” 

send me something if you want?

wewerethebestrichard  asked:

(2/2) there are great and orthodox belief systems that dont have room for jesus coming back anytime too soon and if anyone ever proved one of those to me i wouldnt mind, i do want to know the truth, but it's just the idea of being able to see jesus sooner rather than later gives me so MUCH joy. i know that in some ways it would be scary but i mostly think of it as the very happiest day that could possibly be. i just want to see him and be with him lmao

Thanks for the ask. :) Idk if I can properly explain my thoughts on this subject, but basically my main problem with the tendency I explained is kind of three-fold.

1. It takes focus away from what Christians should be thinking about; which is being a good person in their day-to-day lives, showing kindness to the people closest to them, whether family or just people they encounter.

2. It’s a source of pride disguised as humility when someone considers themselves a prophet and believes they understand God’s plan on something which Jesus Himself said even He didn’t know.

3. I just feel like a lot of the time, people who appoint themselves teachers of Christianity imply that you have to become good instantly in order to go to Heaven? Like, they’ll tell you about such and such a holy person who wouldn’t have acted at all like you do, while ignoring the fact that most of those holy people spent their entire lives working up to the level of holiness they’re discussing? Sure, some people are martyrs or whatever and convert all at once, and I’m not saying their salvation is invalid; what I am saying is that for the majority of people, changing to the person God wants them to be takes a lot of time and effort, and over-dramatizing a fact of the mythos that Jesus left that isn’t really relevant to your efforts except to remind you that there is, in fact, a deadline…doesn’t seem very helpful to me. 

It’s great that you’re that eager to be with Jesus, and a hope for a life with Him is basically the main motivating force of faith, but it has to be sane. It has to be truly focused on everything having its proper time. Hope for heaven, but live on earth. Despair of the earth, but don’t despair of its salvation. And maybe try to work things out in your own head rather than pushing it on people who are subsurvient to you.

~Bloody London Character Task 001: Three of a Kind~

1) Yennefer of Vengerberg-  The Witchers

“The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.”

Like Yennefer, who both as a person and a character refuses to conform to stereotypes, Roxanne takes pleasure in often reversing gender roles and smashing conceptions of any skill or job being a gender-specific area. Famed for her penetrating gaze and sparking with wisdom and imperiousness, like Yen, everything about Rox was ravishing and menacing at the same time, a knife decorated with soft fur or soft fur hidden beneath layers of steel- it all depended on the intellect and intuitiveness of the individual who dared to approach her with a determination to get to her,beneath the charming facades she is expert in exhibiting.

2) Elizabeth Bennet- Pride and Prejudice

“There is a stubbornness about me that can never bear to be frightened at the will of others. My courage always rises at ever attempt to intimidate me”

A mix of energy and intelligence, gaiety and resilience is perhaps what makes Elizabeth Bennet termed as delightful a creature as ever appeared in print and our own lady attorney, a paradoxical force to be reckoned with. Like Eliza, Roxanne is spirited, teasing and possesses a self-assurance that comes from her keen mind and sharp observations. Her confidence in her own discernment, at times a combination of both pride and prejudice, is what leads her into her worst errors and best judgements.  

3) Pamela Swynford De Beaufort  - True Blood

“Let these good people practice their constitutional right to be fucking idiots.I don’t know what it is about me that makes people think I want to hear their problems. Maybe I smile too much. Maybe I wear too much pink. But please remember I can rip your throat out if I need to”

Like the cunning vampire, Roxanne can often be blunt when explaining things or dealing with most people, regardless of their position.She has no scruples in attacking people with her wit and sarcasm, often enjoying intellectual debates. Processing a very morbid sense of humor, with a sweet yet highly lethal charm, she can appear to many, to be cold and uncaring when dealing with people and seems apathetic to the concerns of others, a sort of a shield that protects her from the vulnerabilities of emotions and attachments.

Three of a kind / Task 1 / Devlin Taylor 

Jax Teller / Sons Of Anarchy

“There’s an old saying, ‘That what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger’ I don’t believe that. I think the things that try to kill you make you angry and sad. Strength comes from the good things - your family, your friends, the satisfaction of hard work. Those are the things that’ll keep you whole. Those are the things to hold on to when you’re broken.”

“Your loyalty and faith in me over the last few weeks, I can’t express my gratitude.”

“I’m an okay mechanic with a GED. The only thing I do well is outlaw.”

Devlin and Jax share a lot of traits, and a lot of background. They are both men who are weighed down by responsibility, and trying to carry this as best they can. They are brutal and at times merciless, but incredibly loyal and with a good heart beneath the faquade. Being and outlaw is all they know, all they have ever been, and probably who they always will be. They both believe in protecting and caring for their family, close, extended, blood or not blood. And lastly, both men have a love of motorcycles and mechanics.

Bryan Mills / Taken

“I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don’t have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that’ll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.”

“I believe you. But that won’t save you.”

“That is what happens when you sit behind a desk. You forget things, like the weight in the hand of a gun that’s loaded and one that’s not.”

Devlin is not a father, but he is someone who will go to the ends of the earth for the people he loves. Much like Bryan he can be ruthless and hard, and if you do make an enemy of him, be prepared to face a shit storm with a bloody end, your end that is. He is fully dedicated to his job, and dislikes being placed behind a desk. He’ll choose the field and bloody action any day over sitting still. Neither is helpless in crisis, and will always choose action as opposed to idleness.

Marcel Gerrard / The Originals

“One survivor to another, all I want to do is keep you alive, I swear.”

“Loyalty. You can’t buy it. You can’t own it. You can’t force it. It comes only out of love and respect for the people who believe in you.”

“Wise man said ‘if you know yourself and you know your enemy, then you don’t need to fear the outcome of battle.’ I know myself and I know my enemy. I know his strengths, I know his pride, and I know his house. Every nook and cranny.”

Marcel has always been about protecting those who can’t necessarily protect themselves. His methods are harsh, but usually fair, though he does have a flair for the dramatics that can make the situation go in a less than favorable direction. If he considers you family, one of his own, there is nothing he will not to do make sure you are safe. He is as loyal to you as you are to him. Devlin shares all these traits and more. Much like Marcel he is a self proclaimed king, taking over a legacy his father left for him. And he does not want to be his father, he wants to be more. He also shares his city with his enemy, and is constantly ready for battle.

KNOWING YOUR PARTNER CAN POTENTIALLY MAKE WRITING TOGETHER A LOT EASIER.
REPOST. DON’T REBLOG.

– BASICS.
•  NAME: Velencia, more commonly known as frostie. Again, because my main blog is @frostlesskiss
•   PRONOUNS: She/Her
•   SEXUALITY: Straight, I think. I don’t really care about my sexuality all that much to think about it.
•   TAKEN OR SINGLE: Single, not really ready to mingle. We have our whole lives to search for romance, for now I’d rather have fun and focus on education and success. Besides, I don’t think you’d want me anyway. Not really the most experienced or clingy person. Kind of hate clingy people, actually.

– THREE FACTS.

1: Despite my love for them, I’m pretty darn allergic to animals. I guess it’s the fur, idk? Either way, I go into a sneezing fit real quick. Not to mention if I rub my eye after touching them it’ll get super irritated and unbearable. A habit I’ve stopped for obvious reasons.

2: It’s probably obvious because of my OCs, but god do I love traps. They’re so darn perfect and I will die for all of ‘em. Especially my most recent obsession. *cough* Kiji Mitsuba *cough*


3:  Hmm…Let’s see ..what else. Well, if you haven’t noticed I’m still a nerd for digimon, and pokemon as well. My favorite types are the grass, and my favorite pokemon is Bulbasaur. Precious grass baby~ 😆

EXPERIENCE.
•   HOW LONG (MONTHS / YEARS?):  Hmmm..about four or five years.

•   PLATFORMS YOU’VE USED:  Tumblr, kik, skype, fanfiction forums. 

•   BEST EXPERIENCE: While Tumblr is my favorite site for RPing, my best RP experience was on a forum on fanfiction. The dude I RPed with was super good at it, and it’s where I first made and used Gucci and Prada. It’s also the reason why they’re so developed, because I had threads with ‘em before RPing here. 

– MUSE PREFERENCES.
•   FEMALE OR MALE:  I can play both, but most of my OCs are male 😅

•   FLUFF, ANGST OR SMUT: ANGST. SUFFER WITH ME.

•   PLOTS OR MEMES:  Plot. Memes are fun, but it’s great to think of ways to make your OCs suff-..I mean, to make the RP fun.

•   LONG OR SHORT REPLIES: I’m a sucker for long replies. It gives you a lot to reply to and they’re fun to read. It is probably why I take so long to reply though, as my energy burns out from writing novel replies 😫

•   BEST TIME TO WRITE: AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA. Fool. There is no best time. You either feel motivated or you don’t.

•   ARE YOU LIKE YOUR MUSE(S):  Hmmm..well quite a few have my moles. Gucci has my butt and cheek moles. Though his cheek mole is higher. Personality wise though? Uhhh…hmm…naaah…they’re way more experienced and confident than me. Finni and Prada may have my constant self doubt though?
