Learning Hangul: English > Korean Tips (Part 1)

When I first began studying Hangul I said to myself…how am I supposed to memorize all of these symbols. Well here is how I did it. Some were as simple as, “I just have to remember”. However, some I was able to come up with associations to help me out. I am still at the beginning of learning so if something below isn’t right, feel free to correct me.

1. When writing my notes I found it easiest to list them in order by their English (closest to English) pronunciation. So that I could memorize them all. Be mindful there is an official order that they go in.

2. For all of the double constants I simply put them with their single counterpart. Be mindful they have different pronunciations.

ㅂ - B/P
ㅃ - PP

Tip(s): The English alphabet order is A, B and the hangul symbol looks like an upside down A. B & P sound very similar. (B)lack(P)ink

ㅊ - Ch

Tip(s): The hangul symbol looks similar to a stick figure person or a (ch)aracter.

ㄷ - D/T
ㄸ - TT

Tip(s): Like before, in the English alphabet C is followed by D and the hangul symbol looks like a boxed C. As for T, I simply had to memorize it. However, D & T sound similar.

ㅎ - H

Tip(s): Now you all may laugh but…remember how I said ㅊ looks like a person? Now it looks like they are jumping over a (h)ill.

ㅈ - J
ㅉ - JJ

Tip(s): Again with the person…he is putting on (j)eans.

ㅋ - K

Tip(s): Here is one of the ones I simply had to memorize. But if it helps (at least with writing it), it looks like a backwards F although there is no F sound in the Korean language.

ㄱ - K/G
ㄲ - KK/GG

Tip(s): Now this was one of the last ones I grasped and to be honest I still stumble some times when it comes to the whole ㄱ(k) ㄴ(n) thing. So in order to decipher between the two, here is my strategy (hopefully it’s understandable. ㄱ looks more like you are writing the letter n (without the left line going down) and ㄴ shares the same left line going down as a k, which makes them look a bit more similar. However they are opposites. Another way to think about it is, you want to stop the letters. So if you were to write the letter k inside ㄴ the top lines would go on forever. However if you write k inside ㄱ, it will hit the top and you can move on to the next letter.

ㄹ - L/R or R/L

Tip(s): I remembered using the letter R so I will give a method using that instead. Like before in the English alphabet, R comes before S and the hangul symbol for R looks like a backward S. R & L have similar sounds.

ㅁ - M

Tip(s): This was a bit of a reach but was the easiest for me to remember. It’s a box, don’t put (m)yself/(m)e in a box. Another way like the ㄱ(K) example. You want to stop the letter so, if you write M inside ㅁ, all four corners will touch/stop it from going on forever and you can move to the next letter.

ㄴ - N

Tip(s): Look at ㄱ(K) for the full breakdown but, if you write N inside ㄴ, the bottom will be blocked from going on and you can continue to the next letter.

ㅇ - -ng

Tip(s): Only makes a sound at the end, this is pretty easy to simply memorize…BUT! For my ARMY out there. ㅇ is simply a circle. On the Big Hit logo, the i’s are topped with them and you know what’s at Big Hit? Our favorite Ba(ng)tan “방탄” Boys and none other than Hitman Ba(ng) himself.

ㅍ - P

Tip (s): Since ㅂ is both B & P, ㅍ is P too (2 as in Roman Numeral 2).

ㅅ - S
ㅆ - SS

Tip(s): Honestly I simply memorized this one but is you need some associations to help here are two. 1. If ㅈ is (j)eans, then ㅅ is (s)lacks or (s)ocks (up to you). 2. If you know cursive it almost looks like you started writing a cursive s but went out instead of in at the end.

ㅌ - T

Tip(s): Again simple memorization for me but if it helps here are some associations. E is T or it can be a (T)able (t)hat (t)ilted over.

Hopefully this helps or if it didn’t that’s okay too. Let me know! Also tell me if you have any tips of your own.

Yuri on Ice Fic Rec Mega List

So, this is my own YOI Fic-rec list, compiled from my absolute favorites I’ve been reading during the last three months.

But first, a couple of notes:

Not a lot of angst here (there is some) because I much prefer fluff (and smut), or both (as my friend likes to put it – smuff). Almost all of the stories are T and up, most are M and up.

I don’t do sad endings, y’all. The YOI story is so fucking optimistic, it deserves to be treated as such (sure, if your kink is major character death, go for it, it just won’t be on MY list).

I much prefer the novels, dammit, the longer the better, but there is a section with one-shots and short stories, I just like it less.

I ADORE healthy relationships with good communication, and except for the obvious here, most of these are.

So what do we have here?

A few Fill in the Gaps (FITG) stories, a few Time Travel (TT) stories, two major skating AUs (one of them probably one the best known fics in this fandom) and one completely different AU, One Sub/Dom story that cured me from “50 Shades” (don’t judge me), lots of fluff and domesticity, lots of communication in relationships, lots of social media shenanigans, a few crack stories and a WHOLE LOT OF LOVE ON THE ICE.

The only ships are Victuuri and Otayuri (when they’re older), as I don’t ship them with anyone else, and other ships as side notes.

So. Onwards.

The Novels

Honorary mention - The Rival series – Until My Feet Bleed and My Heart Aches/Of Bright Stars and Burning Hearts, by Reiya. Complete/WIP (Rated E)

General: Ah, boy. So much has been written about this series I don’t really have to add a lot. If you are in this fandom and read fic, you will have heard about this story long before this.

Just for the record – a “What If” AU, told first from Yuuri’s perspective (UMFB&MHA, complete) and then from Victor’s (OBS&BH, WIP), about what would have happened if one small detail was different and the result would be a rivalry between the two. One of the first fics I read and a DAMN GOOD ONE. Like I said, it’s the only one on this list with actual long lasting ANGST, but it’s also beyond sweet.

Bonus points:

Amazing world building, wonderful characterization, handling difficult issues very well, and very good writing.

LOOOOOOONG. As in, novel length. For someone like me, that’s wonderful.

OBS&BH has a pretty regular update rate – especially regarding the fact that Reiya is a FUCKING MEDICAL STUDENT, so tons of kudos to them for keeping the updates as regular as they are.

Reiya (kazliin) is very active here, and answers asks and gives us world building and top ten lists and LIFE I tell you.

One of the best usages of Social Media snippets.

Comments:

A third fic is planned, with lots of fluff and extra scenes, which is something we are looking forward to in the extreme.

Don’t skip the music connected to the story, as it is very important!

Bear Your Soul on the Ice, by SassySalchow (diedraechin). WIP (Rated M)

General: At age 14, Yuuri goes to train with Yakov in Russia and meets his idol, which turns out to be a real dork. The story spans years of both their lives and their relationship (with each other and other people), and it so wonderfully researched and wonderfully written.

Bonus points:

Long, and getting longer. As far as we know, the story is supposed to be around its middle point, and as it currently has 21 chapters and 126,442 words, you do the math.

Amazing (!!!!!!) Original Characters, ones that you don’t want to let go of, and can’t really remember that are not a part of Canon.

The skating descriptions are STUNNING.

Pretty regularly updated.

Social media shenanigans – and texting – from before WhatsApp, oh, dear lord.

Comments:

Additional fic (Life and Love off the Ice) always being updated with titbits and extra scenes.

Winter Song, by proantagonist. WIP (Rated E)

General: One of my favorite FITG fics, and one of the best written. It begins after chapter 7 and goes on after the finale. Lots of really cute Victuuri, tons of healthy communication and fluff (…and smut, yeah).

Bonus points:

Did I mention the COMMUNICATION? I don’t think I did. C-O-M-M-U-N-I-C-A-T-I-O-N. Yeah.

Wonderful characterization of all those involved, with extra cuteness when it comes to Yuuri’s family.

Healthy sex. Really. And it progresses in a REASONABLE PACE.

Call Everything on the Ice…, by shysweetthing. Complete (Rated E)

General: Another FITG fic, with Victor being extra insecure and cute as hell while being very bad at directions and learning Japanese. Some miscommunication and angst here, but nothing major.

Bonus points:

The last chapter is extra cute, way into the future.

Victor and Yuuri’s family, my god.

LANGUAGE KINK. YES.

No Less Unthinkable, by rageprufrock. Complete (Rated E)

General: Well, this one is really tons of smut (a lot in the first chapter, less in the second), but it also portrays Yuuri as somewhat more experienced than you would normally see, so that’s cute. First Chapter is pre-canon, second is FITG for S01.

Bonus points:

Wonderful characterization.

Yuuri and Yuri, LOLZ.

Best sex talks EVER.

Quite a lot of crack. Seriously. These people are HILARIOUS. Snap Stories. Phichit. Dear god.

CHRIS. CHRISCHRISCHRISCHRISCHRIS.

Also, it might be 2 chapters… but it’s long. J

Katsuki_fc wrote, by tetsurashian. Complete (Rated G)

General: How Social Media viewed the happenings of S01. Obviously CC, and FUNNY AS HELL.

Bonus points:

THE CRACKIEST CRACK OF CRACKLAND. Really. DO NOT drink ANYTHING while reading this.

People being supportive which is FUN.

Sweetsilversub, by phlintandsteel. Complete (Rated E)

General: Remember the Dom/Sub story I talked about? THIS IS IT. It’s mostly CC (with a bit before canon and divergent from a point), FITG for the sweetest relationship in the world. Some chatroom talks, a couple of Dom/Sub Scenes between Victuuri and HEALTHY COMMUNICATION.

Bonus points:

Did I mention the communication?

YUURI IS THE DOM AND VICTOR IS THE SUB. It fits so well, my god.

The Dom/Sub scenes are handled so beautifully.

Nice and long (you see a pattern here, don’t you?)

OCs are super cute.

The Carnage of the Art, by ExorcisingEmily. Complete (Rated T)

General: CC Post S01. When Yuri gets hurt, Victor and Yuuri take care of him. Some guilt and some angst here, but a lot of relationship building.

Bonus point:

Extra Podium Family - so much love between the three.

TWO PAIR SKATES!

Beautiful characterization and writing.

On My Love, by RikoJasmine. WIP (Rated T)

General: After a car accident, Yuuri finds himself in the past. It’s probably my favorite TT story, as it is incredibly well written. It’s also kind of a tear-jerker, so be warned.

Bonus points:

Yuuri being confident is great.

Vicchan lives!!!

Yuuri being able to be great at what he does, and Victor falls so hard for him it’s magnificent.

THE BANQUET!!!!

Victor and Yuuri’s family! CUTENESS OVERLOAD.

Fluffy as hell.

Comments:

Update rate is quite slow on this one (not complaining, just saying - I know fic writers have a life and whatever they give I’m grateful), but it’s still already nice and long. Worth the wait, IMHO.

Re: Yuri Katsuki, by Ishxallxgood. WIP (Rated T)

General: CC, S01 told from Phichit’s perspective. Lots of crack, lots of social media, super cute and fluffy.

Bonus points:

Phichit is stirring the Victuuri Ship, y’all. Enough said.

Phichit spends money… XD

ChulaCommeti!

From Almaty, With Love, by BoxWineConfessions. Complete (Rated E)

General: The best Otayuri fic I found, where Yuri goes to stay with Otabek for the summer in Almaty. Pretty slow burn, but seriously good read. Some angst (though I’d call it a tear jerker), but worth it.

Bonus points:

Absolutely STUNNING writing and descriptions.

Almaty in summer is described so life-like it’s as if you’re there.

Both Yuri and Otabek are so well written and their interactions are funny and sweet. And real.

Also long.

Comments:

Second fic in the series (Line and Verse) has extra scenes before and after and is just as well written.

Home, by Kurenaito. Complete (Rated T)

General: Post S01, when Victor and Yuuri adopt two girls. Very sweet family dramas.

Bonus points:

Great OCs, well portrayed.

Extra Yuri being a big brother.

Comments:

Two extra fics in the series (Spark to Flame) – Clara tells all (short) and Spark, which picks up after Home and is a WIP.

Blackbird, by sixpences. Complete (Rated M)

General: WW2/Cold war AU, where both Yuuri and Victor are spies. I’m not big on AUs that aren’t skating, but this one is… Just fucking beautiful. Some angst and it can be a tear-jerker, but it’s really, REALLY worth it.

Bonus points:

One of the best written stories I found, including characterization, plot development, pace, descriptions and emotion.

Nice and long.

Yuuri is not a timid little thing! Yey!

THEY JUST LOVE EACH OTHER ABOVE ALL ELSE, MY GOD.

I cried quite a lot during this, but it’s the good kind of tears.

Very well researched.

The sex scenes are not explicit but the go RIGHT TO YOUR BONES.

Comments:

There will be extra fics in the series (Birdsong) to accompany the main one, with more about the side characters and a bit more about our Victuuri.

Turn back the Clock, by IronScript. WIP (Rated T)

General: TT where Both Yuuri and Victor go back in time. This is pure fluff.

Bonus points:

Long and getting longer!

DID I MENTION THE FLUFF

One Shots and short stories

OK, so true, these aren’t my favourites, but these few are still good enough for me to love them.

You can have everything, by shysweetthing. Complete (Rated T)

General: CD – when Yuuri finds Victor’s phone in the Sochi GPF HILARITY ENSUES.

Bonus Points:

Total Crack most of the time (except for Vicchan).

Everything that’s silver is not gold, by SassySalchow (diedraechin). Complete (Rated M)

General: Soulmates story, where the marking on your body grows when you see your soulmate. CC and very fucking cute.

Bonus points:

Pretty long for a one shot and very well written.

Super cute, just about it.

So this guy walks into a bar…, by silvercistern. Complete (Rated E)

General: Victor and Yuuri pretend to not know each other and Victor is BAD at seducing Yuuri. Crack and a bit of smuff.

Bonus point:

Well, the crack, and the fact that Victor can’t seduce FOR SHIT.

Also, being a couple can be very comfortable.

Drunk on You, by kiaronna. WIP (Rated T)

General: Soulmate AUs one shots, each chapter is a whole different story. Most are CC and quite cute.

Bonus points:

Not “regular” soulmate AUs, so a bit more imagination.

Lots of cuteness overload.


That’s it - if you guys have fics to recommend, I’ll be happy to hear!

Mendel’s Laws

1. the Law of Dominance
2. the Law of Segregation
3. the Law of Independent Assortment

The Law of Dominance 

In a cross of parents that are pure for contrasting traits, only one form of the trait will appear in the next generation. Offspring that are hybrid for a trait will have only the dominant trait in the phenotype.

  • Mendel crossed many different combinations of pea plants
  • When pure tall plants crossed with pure short plants, all the new pea plants (referred to as the F1 generation) were tall.  
  • Similarly, crossing pure yellow seeded pea plants and pure green seeded pea plants produced an F1 generation of all yellow seeded pea plants. 
  • Instead of creating medium height plants or yellowy-green seeds that might have been expected, one trait came out as dominant
  • Ie there is a gene that codes for height. One allele (form of the gene) codes tall and another short. In this case, the tall is dominant
  • The dominant is represented with a capital letter (eg T for tall) while the recessive is lower case (t)

The cross Mendel performed was

Parents (P):  TT x tt

where T = the dominant allele for tall stems
&  t = recessive allele for short stems

The punnet square looks like:

A plant that contains the dominant T will be tall, explaining why 100% of the plants he crossed came out tall.

The Law of Segregation

During the formation of gametes (eggs or sperm), the two alleles responsible for a trait separate from each other.  Alleles for a trait are then “recombined” at fertilization, producing the genotype for the traits of the offspring.

Now, Mendel decides to cross the offspring from the above experiment - all Tt

  • Two of the “F1” generation (tall) are crossed
  •  Would assume to get all tall again as tall is dominant
  • HOWEVER some come out short
  • “F2″ generation is about ¾ tall & ¼ short

Therefore:

  • Parent plants for this cross each have one tall factor that dominates the short factor & causes them to grow tall.
  • To get short plants from these parents, the tall & short factors must separate (allowing the possibility of 2 short factors coming together without a dominant tall) otherwise a plant with just short factors couldn’t be produced
  • The factors must SEGREGATE themselves somewhere between the production of sex cells & fertilization

Two hybrid parents, Tt x Tt.

The punnet square would look like this:

This splitting happens during meiosis.

The Law of Independent Assortment

Alleles for different traits are distributed to sex cells (& offspring) independently of one another.

  • Previously Mendel addressed one trait at a time.  
  • He noticed that different traits had no effect on each other, eg being tall didn’t automatically mean the plants had to have green pods
  • The different traits seem to be inherited INDEPENDENTLY.

The genotypes of our parent pea plants will be:

RrGg x RrGg where
"R” = dominant allele for round seeds
“r” = recessive allele for wrinkled seeds
“G” = dominant allele for green pods
“g” = recessive allele for yellow pods

The results from a dihybrid cross are always the same:


  • 9/16 boxes (offspring) show dominant phenotype for both traits (round & green), 
  • 3/16 show dominant phenotype for first trait & recessive for second (round & yellow) 
  • 3/16 show recessive phenotype for first trait & dominant form for second (wrinkled & green)
  • 1/16 show recessive form of both traits (wrinkled & yellow).

Summary:
