Red Queen, Chapter 26, by Victoria Aveyard

“Maven, please,” I plead, trying to make him look at me. But he turns his back, focusing on his mother and his betrayed blood. He is his mother’s son.

“You used me.”

Finally, Maven condescends to look back at me. “Catching on, are you?”

inspo: @gisabarrow :)



Host: Give it up, or Maven-iac and Cal CALOOOOOORE!

Cal: You’re a bitch!

You’re a liar!

You should admit that you can’t even hold ya fire!

You’re alone,

So I’ll be crude,

I bet you know that I was first that Mare screwed!

Maven: Well maybe somethings you say are quite true,

But–to be frank–I am a better liar than you!

Now Mare’s crying cuz you left her alone,

Good luck with the crown now that you’re on your own!

Daddy can’t help you, are you so scared?

Without him behind you, you are impaired! *crosses arms*

Cal: What?

You think I’m not independent?

Yo mama was devastated cuz you were her descendant!

But I bet you’re happy now that they’re dead,

Your mind is free, so why are you filling with dread?

Everyone hates you!

The courts took you down!

I bet they wanted someone handsome for the crown! *gestures to himself*

Maven: Look at yo’self!

You think you should be so proud?


You’re even getting his receding hair-line!


Cal: Either way,

Mare liked it,

Cuz–guess what–I was the first she showed her cli…

Censoring: BEEEEEP!

Cal: I have the looks,

I hold the cards,

You thought she’d fall for you while she was held by prison-guards?!

Cuz you’re sad!

And you’re whiny!

Just cuz yo mama sometimes slapped you on your hiny!

Word. *drops mic*

Most pets understand a lot of commands like “sit”, “stay”, and many others are able to associate words with broader concepts like “walk” or “vet”. Some dogs go above and beyond, such as Chaser, a border collie in South Carolina who knows and understands over 1,022 words. Ninetales, according to the pokédex, is highly intelligent and can understand human speech. 

So let’s get into this! Speech is more complicated than simply have a vocabulary: the tone and inflections of a voice can say just as much about a message as the words. Animals seem to pick up the tone of voice more easily than the words. Saying “no” in a cheerful flowery voice will not have the same effects as saying “no” sternly. In actuality, two different parts of the brain are responsible for processing speech! 

Broca’s area, which is responsible for a lot of speech production, helps with the processing of the physical meaning of the words. Wernicke’s area focuses mostly on comprehension, from voice inflections to facial cues and so on. One portion of Wernicke’s area, called the planum temporale, tends to be highly asymmetric, with a larger amount in the left brain than the right.

That’s for humans, but it’s been shown that dogs have the same parts too! In one study, England scientist Victoria Ratcliffe used 250 dogs and a two speaker set up – one on the left and one on the right. She proceeded to play various recordings of commands. Some with lots of emotion, some without. She found that dogs seemed to turn left when the message was heavy with emotional cues, and right when the meaning of the word was most important. Interestingly enough, a command in a foreign language caused the dog to turn left, but a command with a foreign accent got a right-side response.

Basically this means that dogs process speech in the same way that humans do! The right side of their brain is responsible for perceiving emotions and inflections in speech. The left brain is more associated with picking up the concepts associated with vocabulary. (ears are linked with the opposite brain hemisphere). So if you want your dog to understand your words clearly, speak in their right ear!

Ninetales’ brain is capable of interpreting human speech in two parts. Its right brain is responsible for interpreting emotions and inflections in a voice, and its left brain processes meaning of vocabulary.

I will talked most about dogs in this article, since Ninetales appears to be in the canine family. Understanding human speech is by no means limited to canines though. Octopuses, horses, dolphins, monkeys and tons more have shown the same kinds of research results in this field!

”She spoke of slavery, because that’s what this world is. No one dares say it but that’s what reds are. Slaves and graves.”

None of these pics are mine, I found all of them on Pinterest, I think, but edited the majority. Especially the middle picture. I wiped him out…. 😭😭😭


**FAIR WARNING** and too many Fire/Burner puns to count oops

Host: Give it up for the ‘Lil Lightnin’ Girl and for mAVEN-IAC!

Maven: Let’s be honest, Mare, you can’t keep yo eyes off me.

Now when are you gonna find a hotter flame than me?

You know my story, I’m just the Shadow of the Flame,  [makes sad puppy eyes]

But you and I can call each other by other names.

I’ll be ‘Your Majesty’ and I’ll call you ‘Pet’ maybe.

Or you can even call me Mavey, too, baby.

Mare: May I call you asshole, or even pr * ck?

There are just so many options that I can’t pick!

Cuz you don’t deserve yo titles that’s fo shizzle,

Look at the Fire Boy and hear that sIZZLE!!!

Audience: OOH

Audience Member: She got you man!

Mare: The King of Norta brought its country to its ruin.

Not to mention the storm the Scarlet Guard is brewin’.

You tried to stop a war through marriage, now how’s that workin’ for ya?

Poor Iris had to save her husband, too, I doubt that she’ll adore ya.

You know we women have some standards in length you see.

The life of a country, and somethin’ that hurts when its hit with a knee.

Maven: Now look at tiny Mare going for the low blow

But I shouldn’t be surprised it’s the only blow she can go fo.

Could you remind me what it’s like down there, looking up?

Or if you want to reach above my d * ck then should I pick you up?

Mare: Ooh, you know Maven, you should step-back that one really hurt. [sarcastically]

Is brining pain to other people the only way you flirt?

Now, even if I wanted to I wouldn’t be your girlfriend.

Cuz based on yo history I already know how that ends.

‘His name was Thomas’ and I watched him die in the war,

Well did he know your heat was more than he could bargain for?

Now though, I admit your brother was a huge mistake,

At least being with him didn’t turn me into a slice o’ steak.

Audience: dAMNNNNNN!!

Maven: Yeah, when I love someone, I go over-board by just a smidge.

Sure, we’ve gone through stuff but that’s just water under a bridge.

You and your people can call me a monster, a killer, a fool.

But you and I both know it Mare, you are just as cruel.

Here’s a list of reasons why I had to tie you in chains:

The only thing you’re good at is en-trapin’ other people’s brains.

First you tricked my brother, and then you made him pick.

Shade Barrow, Lucas Samos, and my mother went quick.

We are both villains, bringing in some stormy weather.

All I’m asking is why can’t we be mis’rable together?

[silence from Mare]

Mare: You don’t dream Maven, but I can tell you I that do.

So I know I’ve had more nightmares, than you.

The diff’rence between us is that I don’t kill for fun.

I regret every moment using lightning or a gun.

Wellll not really, cuz I used it on your mother, too.

And you’re a poor excuse for a half Merandus, yeah it’s true.

Anyways, you know you should ask your brother Cal,

In bed I’m usually the top type of gal.

Face it boy, in this, too, I’ll can only end up on top,

So you know what you get? You get a mic drop!!

Mare: *drops mic*

[crowd goes wild]

                        (you can send me requests through my ask box)


Host: Give it up for the Friend-Zoned Loser and and the Mare-Heart bRUISERRRR!

Cal: You’re the Fisher Boy, I’m the Kisser Boy,

You’re her friend-zoned friend, I’m her bed-boyfriend!

Kilorn: Excuse me? Did I hear you right? Did you just say:

‘I’m her boyfriend’? Well lemme tell you that there’s no way!

Dude, as a fisher, I know when things fail,

You know how we say it? That ship has sailed!

Cal: And what did you think that I left her for?

Well dumbass, it’s to stop that war!

I’ll shape a better future, for our children of course,

She’ll crawl back to me with some great remorse!

Kilorn: If you think she’s gonna love you through-and-through,

Then boy, I’ve met fish with more brains than you!

Sure, together you once would sleep,

But now you left her all alone, just to weep!

Well, she’s gonna need a shoulder to cry on,

And lil’ Kilorn’s gonna be there to rely on.

I’m gonna take her in, hook, line, and sinker,

With no one as worthy, I’m gonna win her!

Cal: Yep, that’s the only way you’ll ever get Mare,

Only when no one around is near as fair.

Boy, let’s be honest, your standard’s down here, *hand very low*

Maybe not in height, but Mare and I are near. *hand at chest height*

Kilorn: Yeah and were you there when her older bros left?

When her family was starving and she turned to theft?

Might I remind you that it’s ya Silvers who did it

We were swallowing b-s until the very limit!

Cal: Ha-Ha. And you think that that was all me?

The person who started it, setting up this country?

I can’t help it that I’ve got Silver-blood,

But just ask what Mare thought when we were in the mud! *smirk*

Audience: OOOOOHH!!!

Kilorn: If you think that you screwed Mare first, 

This news is gonna shock you, cuz it’s the worst,

Mare already ‘did it’ with someone else!

Could’ve been me, but I won’t confess! *mic drop*
