verbal bomb

I cannot describe how perfect this app is if you’ve been in an emotionally abusive relationship. This shit is real and it’s a vicious cycle. The app is called “No Contact” and it reminds you of how things actually were rather than how you’ve been programmed to see things - and most of all not to contact the abuser.

A TL;DR:

John and Jade talk a lot like each other: look carefully. His most distinctive word is “Jade.”

Jade’s most distinctive word is “John.”

Rose speaks the most diversely of the betas. Her most distinctive word is “session.”

Dave curses the fifth most of any character. Unsurprisingly, his most distinctive word is “shit.”

The longer version

John’s lexical density (a rough measure of word diversity and thus vocabulary) is 8.9%, which is low for his corpus size of 34,000 words–he’s the second biggest talker in Homestuck after Karkat with 39,000 words. His cursing rate is 0.41%, which is low, and he prefers to use “shit.”

Jade’s LD is 10.6% from nearly 19,000 words, which is low. Compare John and Jade’s clouds and you’ll see the similarity in their speech. Her cursing rate is 0.12%, which is very low.

Rose’s LD is , 17.0% from about 21,000 words, which is higher than expected.. Her cursing rate is 0.16%, which is very low.

Dave’s LD is 12.6% from about 33,000 words, which is about average for this corpus size. He says the third most of any character in the web comic after John. If it’s not obvious, Dave’s cursing rate is very high at 2.27%. His lexical weapon of choice is fuck, making up 40% of all his 758 verbal bombs so far.

All of the dialog was compiled as one big corpus to which each character was compared to using AntConc. The top five were chosen, ignoring any common or interjective words.

John’s most distinctive words are Jade, dad, Rose, Vriska, and guess.

Jade’s are John, password, woof, Bec, and frog. I usually prefer to remove onomatopoeic words but “woof” was too cute to not include. Most of the woofs come from the time she chased Jaspersprite down the hallway on the ship.

Rose’s are session, Kanaya, grist, question, and null. Three of them all refer to some part of Sburb: the kids’s session, grist of various sorts, and a null session.

Dave’s most distinctive words are shit, fucking, fuck, dude, and fuckin. This makes it very apparent how much more he curses than the other betas.

Excluding John’s own cloud, John is the most frequently mentioned character in all of the other beta kids’ dialog.

Alpha kid word clouds

Hunger - chapter 21

Hunger master post 


The wolf can hear three heartbeats outside the door. The wolf likes those odds. He has his alpha to lead him and his human pack mate by his side, and the two other humans as well. The two others are not pack, but also not enemies. The wolf is confused by them, but his alpha trusts them, and the wolf trusts his alpha.

The wolf is wearing his human skin now, but he is pushing away his human thoughts. They are waiting like the hunters behind the door, ready to burst in and try to overwhelm the wolf. It is easier, for now, to think in the wolf’s terms. His alpha is here. That is all the wolf needs to know. The human clambering in the back of the wolf’s mind is to be ignored for now. That human, Derek, that boy, who wants to hug Uncle Peter and cry and demand the answers to a hundred questions there is no time to answer. That boy who thought his uncle was dead along with the rest of them. That boy who thought he was the last surviving Hale. That boy retreated long ago and left the world to the wolf. And the wolf is ready to fight.

Beside him, his Stiles is armed with a piece of chain.

The wolf feels a growl begin to rumble in his chest. It is a sound that signifies a hundred different things: a warning to his boy to be careful, a warning to the hunters that his boy is deadly, a signal to his alpha that he and his boy have his back, a reminder to the moon that he knows she is watching him, and an acknowledgement that he will soon be tasting blood.

The wolf is proud of his boy right now. Stiles has been so small and so scared, but here at last is the anger he has honed to a sharp edge. Here at last are his teeth and claws. Here at last is his chance to fight. Here at last is the measure of him, and the wolf knows he will be magnificent. Stiles has the heart of a wolf.

The heart, yes.

Not the muscle though.

The wolf won’t only be guarding his alpha’s back out there.

His boy catches his eye and nods.

The door bursts open.

It’s not surprising that CM Punk cited the radical WWE Hall of Famer “Rowdy” Roddy Piper as a childhood influence. After all, Punk was the embodiment of the anti-establishment, whose skill at igniting verbal “pipe bombs” was rivaled only by the late “Hot Rod” himself.

Punk even looked the part of rebel with his too-numerous-to-count tattoos and body piercings. Yet, he waxed way more philosophical than his exterior might have suggested, and showed a diverse set of interests that included ghost hunting, G.I. Joe and the “Straight Edge” movement, a subculture that rejects the use of drugs, alcohol and a dependency lifestyle.
