okay, it took me a while to write everything down, but here are my thoughts and reactions to the last 19 days chapter!! (an alternative title for this could be ‘how to make people regret asking about your thoughts’)
anyway, it’s been pretty hard for me to put some order to my thoughts, because im just!!!!!!! so in love with this chapter!!!!!!!! it’s been a whole day and im still such a mess, there are noises coming out of my mouth but they’re not human, and i can’t find the right words to express how i feel because this update wAS TOO MUCH FOR MY POOR HEART
i think this might be my favorite tianshan chapter, tho it’s a very close tie with chapter 185, and im afraid i’ve been kinda all over the place, but hopefully it makes sense!! (putting this under a cut because it’s really long and there are some pictures)
Hello! So, I’ve researched some Christmas music in different languages. Some have a lot, like, too much so I narrowed it down, and some don’t have that much, but I found the best I could. Some are similar songs to what English speakers and Americans are used to such as “jingle bells” etc etc, while others are their own original seasonal songs. If it’s similar or the same song as traditional songs in English, I’ll put them in the parenthesis. So anyway, enjoy and happy holidays!
Esto va a ser una mezcla de la dinámica mamá #LosSignosDicen (ya saben, esa que se cambió de sexo y luego se mató que sad) y su hijo todo raro #Signos+
Ustedes envían en su ask algo parecido a los Signos + __inserte cosa/situación/cosa rara___ pero~ esta va a ir dedicada a ciertos signos en especial. Por ejemplo, preguntarle alguna cosa a los signos acá pondríamos al signo o el grupo de signos que envíen en esa situación tipo las conversaciones que piden. Tomen en cuenta que~
Los signos no tienen género, no son niños ni niñas
Los signos no tienen edad, pueden actuar como berrinchudos o todos serios según estereotipo
Nada acá es real, osea que puede haber hasta unicornios rosas con pecas moradas y se valen
Es cómo actuarían los signos, no cómo actuarían ustedes :’v
Si no se entiende acuérdense que me estoy sacando esto de mi cabeza adormilada a media noche y que ni estoy comiendo sano (mi papá se está haciendo cargo de alimentarnos Lol)
Que alguien me diga si Cancer (de signo) tiene acento o no… yo la verdad no lo se. Esta es la ultima ficha que subiré el día de hoy… posiblemente suba las otras 4 después de un capitulo… o después de un rato, no lo se, pero estas ya las tengo desde hace tiempo :v
Si quieren saber por que elegí a Hugo para Cáncer… gente el es Cáncer, no hay nada mas que decir. todo el tiempo lo vi a el como la representación física de mi Cáncer, no hay nada mas.
Si es que no les gusta a los modelos que escogí para los signos, ignoren los post y armenlos en su cabeza con su imaginación, se que pueden hacerlo.
A vi nikol predaje ključa niste mel? To je inicijacija v zadni razred oš/sš na enih šolah kjer 9. razredi/maturanti predajo kluč 8. razredom/3. letnikom
Ajaa, js sm mislu, da je blo to specifično vprašanje za neko letošnjo predajo (ker je bla kraja omenjena), o kateri bi mogu js kaj vedet.
Sicer pa nekega posebnega mnenja nimam; vsekakor je velik boljši dogodek kot pa fazaniranje, ker so vsi, ki se je aktivno udeležijo, tam čisto po svoji volji (= pač če hočeš samo gledat, lahk tud samo gledaš in je čist ok, vsaj po mojih izkušnjah). Najboljši del je pa seveda predstavitev daril – na eni od predaj, ki sm jih js vidu, je en razred kupu cel avto(!), ki bi ga podaril, če bi zmagal (potem sicer niso, ampak jih je avto obdržal v igri tak dolg, da so bili zadnji izločeni).
people saying that mary shelley was the first science fiction author... but asimov.
Quick history lesson! No.
(Edit: For some reason, I misread your question as ‘science fiction novel’ rather than ‘author’, but all the points are still valid - I just focused on the works themselves rather than the authors. I am also not a science fiction expert - I’ve just argued this case an irritating number of times)
Firstly, there’s no definitive ‘first science fiction novel’. This is primarily because it’s kind of hard to track the evolution of a genre right back to its original work; the original work itself must have been influenced by genre tropes. You could argue that the first true original genre work was the first to encompass all of the genre tropes that we recognise today as being typical of science fiction, but then that would mean that every work of science fiction would need to conform to all these tropes in order to fit the definition, which they obviously don’t.
Let’s also just get the definition of ‘science fiction’ out of the way. From dictionary.com:
Some people argue that there are incredibly early works which could be defined as science fiction, most notably The Treatise of Kamil on the Prophet’s Biography (Al-Risalah al-Kamiliyyah fil Siera al-Nabawiyyah in Arabic) by Ibn al-Nafis in ~1270CE. In the final two chapters of this Arabic work the author predicts a possible end of the world scenario based upon the contemporary knowledge of the world, and the rest of the narrative is about a protagonist being shown that the human mind can comprehend truths about the universe, such as the existence of a god (it’s an Islamic work) through logic and reason. This clearly shows the speculative element often present in science fiction, and the plot is hinged upon the exploration of ideas which were, at the time, scientific and theological truths. There are even arguments that works such as The Epic of Gilgamesh (~2100BC) could be defined as science fiction, given that they include tropes such as the discovery of new worlds and rationalisation of truth.
Other arguments counter that true science fiction can only really exist when true science does; that without the knowledge of things such as biology, astronomy and physics, the science part of science fiction is absent, and you just have fiction. This argument means that the bulk of science fiction work as defined this way was produced after the Age of Reason, in which a vast number of scientific discoveries and theories were made (or re-made, depending on the extent to which it can be argued that this is a whitewashed version of historical discovery), such as heliocentrism, gravity, and new anatomical knowledge, and enabled authors to combine fact and fiction in ways that had never been possible before. I do think it’s important to reiterate that this particular definition of ‘when science was finally done properly’ is a bit of a Westernised idea, and it’s a tricky one to wrangle with. It’s yet another reason why we can’t really pin down the first example of the genre - in order to define science fiction, we kind of have to define science, and it’s not really inaccurate to say that a lot of science, through the lens of history, has traditionally been rewritten, and a lot of discovery dates have been fudged.
That aside, the first novel we have that fits this second and more nuanced definition - assuming, however erroneously, that the Age of Reason is a factor - was written in England in 1666. The Blazing World, completed a year before the birth of Jonathan Swift and written in a precursor to his popularised satirical tone, is a work of pseudo-utopian fiction about a world that can only be reached through the North Pole, where even the stars in the sky are different. The unnamed protagonist enters this new world, inhabited by strange animal men, and is immediately made ruler. They begin to restructure the society so that it is free of unjust social hierarchies, including sexism, and war, and begin a scientific research programme. The protagonist then calls for the citizens to debate a number of scientific and religious questions, trying to resolve Biblical accounts with scientific logic. At the end of the narrative, the protagonist is warned by the author (yes, it’s meta) that Earth is under attack, and the protagonist takes their new subjects back to their own world and defeats an the invasion. Well. Her homeland, as the protagonist is female.
Oh, and the author was named Margaret Cavendish.
There are of course people who argue that Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1818) is the first true work of science fiction - and it’s true that it’s certainly the work that began to narrow down the genre into a more recognisable form - it wasn’t exactly the first of its kind. It was, however, a precursor to Asimov in just about every way. The difference is that Asimov’s work was produced during a time when the phrase ‘science fiction’ first came into parlance, before which point the term ‘science romance’ was used (’romance’ meaning something fanciful, e.g. fiction, rather than bodice ripping). However, if you’re going to argue that only works that were actually called ‘science fiction’ when they were written are actually science fiction, then you’re discounting War of the Worlds (1898), and I don’t think anyone can really argue that that particular work isn’t science fiction. Even Poe wrote a story in 1850 named The Unparalleled Adventures of One Hans Pfaal, in which the protagonist constructs a hot air balloon to transport him to the moon, and all the factors involved - such as the distance between the Earth and the moon - are explained. That’s science fiction.
Heck, not even Asimov himself claimed to have invented science fiction. He was part of a group of science fiction fans, which became known as The Futurians, in the mid ‘30s. He visited the headquarters of a magazine which was literally titled Astounding Science-Fiction before completing his first science fiction story. To say that Asimov invented science fiction is just, y’know, wrong. He may have further refined the genre, and he was certainly a pioneer of hard science fiction, but he didn’t invent the genre anew. I think it’s kind of simultaneously hilarious and devastating that people are still arguing that he did, and I think we all know why (hint: the alternatives mean that it isn’t a genre shaped exclusively by white dudes).
