1. - 깨가 죽으면 뭔 줄 알니?
- What is it called when a sesame is dead?
“Freckles” (주근깨 ju-keun-kkae) is pronounced the same as “dead sesame” (죽은 깨 juk-eun kkae).
2. - 햄버거가 무슨 색인 줄 알니?
- What color is the hamburger?
“Burger” when joined with the letter “n” becomes “burgern”, which is pronounced the same as “burgun” in “burgundy”.
3. - 딸기가 도망가면 뭔 줄 알니?
- What is it called when a strawberry runs?
- Strawberry jam.
“Jam” is written as “잼” (jaem) in Korean. “재다” (jae-da) means “fast”, while “잼” can also mean the adjective “재다” is added an “ㅁ” to it, turning “재다” into a noun “잼” (rough meaning: the state of being fast). So “딸기잼” (ddalki-jam / strawberry jam) can be understood as “the strawberry is fast”.
4. - 물이 있어요. 이 물들이 갑자기 흩어졌어. 그럼 무엇일까?
- There’s water. The water then suddenly dispersed. What is it called?
“Seafood” is “해산물” (hae-san-mul) in Korean. “해산” (hae-san) means “dispersal” and “물” (mul) means “water”. So “해산물” literally means “dispersed water”.
5. - 라면이 프랑스 가면 왜 싫어하는 줄 아십니까?
- 다 불어 써서.
- Why do the noodles hate going to France?
- Because they all use French.
“Use French” is “불어 써서” (bul-eo sseo-seo) in Korean, “불어” (bul-eo) means “French” and “써서” (sseo-seo) is the conjugated version of the verb “쓰다” (sseu-da / use) with the 아/어서 grammar (indicating the reason of an action/a situation). “불어 써서” is pronounced similar to “불었었서” (bul-eoss-eoss-seo, read as: bul-leot-sseot-seo), which is the verb “붇다” (but-da / swell up, be bloated) with 았었/었었 grammar (double past tense, indicating an action is done in the past and is no longer relevant to the present). Combined, we have “불었었어”, meaning “(the noodles are) bloated".

- What is a cat made from water called?
- Water rocket.
“Water rocket” is “물로켓” (mul-ro-ket) in Korean. “물” (mul) means “water” and “로켓” (ro-ket) means “rocket”. When analyzed in a different way, “물로켓” can be separated into “물”, “로” and “켓”. “로” (ro) indicates something is used as material, and “켓” (ket) is read similar to “cat” in English. In that sense, “물로켓” means “a cat made from water.”
🐰 8. - 3월에 대학생들이 강한 이유는?

So “소오름” can be understood as “a cow going up”.

Prompt: Jin comforts you after you have a nightmare about him leaving
Genre: angst, fluff
Word Count: 1367
He was packing, or rather, had finished packing, and the home you used to share now seemed to be left bare. Little trinkets and Mario toys were taken away and placed carefully in a suitcase, leaving behind spots on surfaces where dust couldn’t reside before. Clothes you had forgotten were his because of how often you’d wear them were gone, leaving a bigger hole than you thought they could. Not that you ever imagined this to happen in the first place.
“I really wish we could, but everything is just so busy and I don’t feel like it’s right for you to have to wait so long to see me for such a short period of time before I need to leave again.”
You tried to protest. That was just a given for you to be with him, and the two of you already had plenty of conversations about the issues that arose with his work, but everything was resolved with reassurance and quality time whenever he was able to be with you. You were ok. He knows that!
The protest bubbled in your chest and you opened your mouth to speak, but nothing was spoken into the air. No words were formed.
Why can’t I speak?! I need to tell him!
“I wish we could be together forever.”
“The plans we made for our future…”
Seokjin! Stop, please!
“Right now, nothing is working. I don’t think I can keep the promises I made to you. You shouldn’t hold yourself back from life because of me.”
No! We talked about this!
“And I know how persistent you can be when you set your mind on something, and it’s really admirable…but because of that, you wouldn’t let yourself live as happily as I want you to-”
I am happy! Who told you this?!
“-so I’ll do it…For both of us, I think it would be better if we weren’t together anymore because of my job and how it affects your life. I just want you to be happy. I would hug you and kiss you, but I’m afraid that if I do, I’ll never be able to let go, so…the best I can do is this.”
You began crying as he solemnly brought his hand to his lips and sent a kiss to you by mournfully extending his arm back toward you. You tried to grab his hand and beg him to stay, to listen to you, but he was just out of your reach.
You could only watch the tears fall from his eyes.
You cried and screamed his name, trying desperately to run after him, to find him, but everything was dark and you were confused and terrified and it felt like ropes were wrapping themselves securely around your torso to keep you from moving forward, to keep you from him.
You fought them with all your strength, but they were too strong. You could only sob, words too broken to be understood.
The sound of Seokjin’s voice calling your name further crushed the shattered pieces of your heart into dust. Your body was shaking violently and you couldn’t breathe. Hot pressure was crushing your chest and your name continued to be called.
“Please wake up!”
You jolted, eyes snapping open and frantically tried to get rid of the ropes tying you down. It took a few moments for you to realize that there weren’t any ropes. Only Seokjin holding you upright, securely in his arms. The violent shaking was him trying to rouse you as gently as possible and the burning, suffocating pressure was him pressing your body against his chest. The fresh, clean scent that belonged uniquely to him filled your nose. The smell of safety brought relief, flooding your senses to fight off panic, and all you could do was curl your fists into his shirt and continue to cry as he rocked you back and forth, rubbing circles into your back, murmuring words of comfort and pressing kisses to the crown of your head.
“It’s ok. You’re ok, it was only a dream. Everything’s ok. I’m here, it’s ok, I’m here. Just hold onto me and breathe. Can you do that for me? Breathe in-”
You sucked in a stuttering breath of air.
The air left too quickly and your lungs returned to the panicked hyperventilation for a moment until Seokjin’s voice brought you back.
“That’s ok, you’re ok. Try again, come on. In…and out. Good, good job. You’re doing so well. Again, c’mon,” he urged gently.
After a minute or so, your breathing and heart rate had calmed down, but you were still shuddering. Seokjin held onto you in the dark, the silence broken only by your deep breaths as you clung to him.
He was so warm and comforting.
He softly rubbed his hands over your arms, lightly massaging the muscles sore from shivering and tensing. “Are you feeling better?”
You wordlessly nodded and nestled further into him. He protectively rested his head on yours and sat there in silence, allowing you to simply feel his breath and listen to his heartbeat until you were comfortable with talking.
“Y-you…you left m-me,” you finally managed to explain, bursting into tears again.
Seokjin wordlessly held you tight and rocked you again, waiting patiently for you to regain composure so as to not rush you and stress you out. When you calmed down, he asked why he left.
“Because of being an i-idol, and I know, I know that both of us have talked about t-this and we’re ok, but that’s why I was so con-confused and scared. I thought I did something wrong and I c-couldn’t say anything and you’re ok, right? Y-you’re ok about us?”
Seokjin pulled back from the hug a little to look you in the eye. He cupped you face in his hands and brushed away stray tears still lingering on your cheeks. “Yes. I have no doubt that I want to stay with you for a very long time. Forever, even. I do feel bad more often than I would like to admit because of the way you have to live because of me, but the reassurance that you’re ok and that you love me with all your heart regardless of how late I get home or wherever in the world I may be…How can I not love you? It was just a bad dream. I would never just walk out on you based off of such a weak excuse like that. I love you. I love you so much and I don’t want to leave you and the fact that you don’t want to leave me makes me love you so much more. Please don’t have that dream again, but if that Seokjin comes back, if he says that crap again, just laugh at him. Look him dead in the eye and laugh at him and his stupidity.”
“Hey, what does a dog say when it sees a wall?”
“Seokjin, I swear to God-”
“Wol wol!!” He began laughing.
“That’s not even a new joke! You’ve already said this!”
“Isn’t it funny?”
“No!” You squirmed out of his hold and lay back down, turning your back to him. “I’m going back to sleep.”
“What color is a hamburger?”
“Burgundy! Go to bed, I don’t wanna talk to you anymore!”
He lay down next to you, wrapping his arms around your torso and squishing your body to back into his chest. You protested and tried to wriggle away, but he wouldn’t let you. Your kicking only tangled the two of you further into the sheets.
You stopped fighting him when he kissed the back of your neck softly, solemnly.
“I love hearing you smile.”
“That doesn’t make any sense.”
“Yes it does. You can hear it in someone’s voice when they smile. I love hearing your smile. It makes me happy too.”
You turned around and looked up at him. “Thank you, Seokjin.”
“I love you.”
“I love you too.”
He pressed a kiss to your lips and held you close, playing with your hair until you fell sound asleep in his arms.
love in a time of social media part one. shance. eventual nc-17.
alternate universe. lance is the king of shitposts and selfies. shiro is an artist who loves his dog and fatalistic humor. somehow, they fall in love.
warning! underage drinking and casual use of marijuana
They meet online.
Specifically, they meet on tumblr. Shiro is an artist of middling popularity and Lance is a shitposter of the highest caliber. Shiro follows Lance months before Lance follows him; indeed, Lance is unaware of Shiro’s work until Shiro @’s him in a small comic.
‘I couldn’t resist,’ Shiro types below the image. 'Thank you for the inspiration, @lances-a-lot.’
Shiro—@white_iron—has a simple art style and a sharp sense of humor that makes Lance laugh out loud. He reblogs the comic, telling his followers to check it out, and proceeds to creep on Shiro’s blog. Lance’s first stop is Shiro’s small about section.
What does service dog etiquette say about taking a picture of your dog while working? My SD was with me at the local natural history museum. While looking at the dinosaur skeletons, my friend offered to take a picture of me (and my dog) with my favorite. I declined, as I wasn't sure- would it have been alright? Or is that an abuse of ADA privalages? (For example, people without disabilities don't get to have pictures of their dogs with dinosaurs.) Thank you!
You can do whatever you like with your dog. ADA isn’t that strict. 😊
<b>Kagami:</b> What does a dog say?<p/><b>Child:</b> Woof!<p/><b>Kagami:</b> And a sheep?<p/><b>Child:</b> Baaaaaa!<p/><b>Kagami:</b> Then what about a panther?<p/><b>Child:</b> The only one who can beat me is me!<p/><b>Kagami:</b> G-good job! *silent laughter*<p/><b>Aomine:</b> Taiga, what have you been teaching our child again?!<p/></p>
