A ravager and his Twig

Ya know this is actually going to be submitted as part of my uni work. Because I’m at this stage where no fucks are given > < The eye searing colours are intentional; one thing I love about GOTG was how colourful everything is. So this gets to be colourful too. The Zeus with a lightning bolt look is intentional because whenever Yondu puckers those lips I feel like the tide of the battle has turned. He is kind of a one man army by himself. Was going to add Rocket on the other shoulder but yeeeeah > <

*Whispers I’m exhausted T T And also I did promise a process sheet last time. I am sorry and also not sorry about the huge ass watermark, like I can’t be bothered chasing down reposters but I will slap my name everywhere instead.

Evet gta gibi yaşamaya karar verdim Bilgisayarda oynadığım zaman oyundaki karakterimin hayatı ne kadar eğlenceli oluyor diye düşündüm. dedim para var, araba var, ev var, karı var. sokakta herkes bundan korkuyor. dedim gerçek hayatda neden olmasınki amk? sonuçta oyundada polis var hayatdada ama zeka seviyelerine bakarsan ikiside aynı. oyundada politikacı var gerçek hayatdada ama zeka seviyelerine bakarsan oyundakiler daha zeki amk. hatta oyundaki siviller bile daha zeki amk. üzerlerine araba sürünce kaçıyorlar, kırmızı ışıkta duruyorlar. ulan kafama yattı gittim giydim paltomu, üzerimede bir ceket geçirdim oturdum görev bekliyorum. telefonumuda masaya koydum. İlk görev oğlum git ekmek al. Annem girdi içeri. masamın üstüne 4 lira bozuk para koydu. aldım parayı cebe. dedi git ekmek al kalanıylada kola al. güzel 3 lira bana kalıyor. ayağa kalktım ve annemin elini sıktım. olmuş bil dedim. konuşurkende ellerimi, kollarımı falan olabildiğince oynatmaya özen gösterdim. sonra bir sigara yaktım ve çıktım dışarı. baktım bizim komşu emekli ali abi renault clio arabasına biniyor. beni görünce gülümseyip selam verdi. kısa mesafe olmasına rağmen hızla koşarak yanına gittim. hey men, nice car! diye bağırdım. bu ne diyorsun oğlum iyimisin? diye sorunca suratına bir tane patlattım. bunun gözlükleri suratında parçalandı. daha sonra bunu kolundan tutup hızla kenara ittim. bu kaldırıma yuvarlandı. anahtarı aldım elinden bindim arabaya ve hızla gaza bastım. bu arkamdan eşşek oğlu eşşek, apartmandan attıracam lan sizi diye bağırıyor amk. Arabada son sürat gidiyorum amk. ne kırmızı ışığı takıyorum, ne yoldan geçen vatandaşı. baktım 70 yaşında bastonlu bir amca yoldan geçiyor. o an durmak istedim ama prensiplerimi çiğneyemezdim. niko olsa dururmuydu amk. amcaya doğru son sürat giderken amca duracağımı zannederek yüzünü bana doğru dönüp gülümsedi. son gördüğüm manzara buydu. büyük bir çarpma sesinden sonra dikiz aynasından amcayı yan mahalleye doğru uçarken gördüm. bir kaç km sonra bim toptan fiyatına parekende satış mağazasının önünde durdum. sertçe frene bastığım için öndeki arabanın kaportasına büyük hasar vererek durabildim. siktir et amk. indim arabadan girdim bimin içine. yürürken karşıma çıkan tam yağlı dost süt 1.99 tl yerine 1.50 kr tabelasına bir tekme patlattım. daha sonra çikolata rafının karşısına geçip çikolata paketlerini yumruklamaya başladım. her şey yere düştü. çevremdeki teyzeler ve çalışanlar falan anlamsız gözlerle bana baktılar. ben koşarak dolaptan ekmeği aldım ve kolumun altına koydum. daha sonra girdiğim kapıyı tekmeleyerek tekrar çıktım. Arabaya bindim. gene gazı köklüyorum. arabanın ön tarafı içine göçmüş. dikiz aynasının biri yok. bi baktım ekip otosu park etmiş yanda beni görünce açtılar sireni amk. bunlar peşime takılınca bende gazlamaya başladım. bunlar mikrofondan dur falan demeye başladılar. dedim tommy vercetti olsa napardı amk. sonra girdim ana caddeye bunlarda hala peşimde baktım önde iki polis arabası barikat yapmış. ben hızla girdim arabaların arasına polisler kaldırıma kaçtılar. arabalar büyük hasar gördü. bende direksiyon hakimiyetini kaybettim araba ters döndü amk. baktım bunlar koşup etrafımı sardılar. indim arabadan yüzümde çizikler, kolumdada bir ağrı vardı belliki çatlamış. ben ağrı sızı dinlemeden zıplaya zıplaya kaçmaya başladım amk. polisin teki geldi boynumdan tuttu yere devirdi beni diğer ikiside joblamaya başladı. sanırım bi 3 yıldız olmuşum amk silahım olsa kaçardım. Bunlar beni yaka paça karakola götürdü. sorgu odasına girerken hey man! you are police! diye bağırdım. bunlar beni döverek sorgu odasına soktular. girerken cebimdeki çakıyı falan aldılar. amir girdi içeri. dedi manyakmısın oğlum sen? cevap bile veremedim. o an mission failed yazısı belirmişti gözümün önünde. ağlamaklı oldum. bu bana geldi bir tane patlattı. dedim pes etmek yok. carl olsa böyle yapmazdı diyerek ayağa kalktım. amiri tutup ittim bu sandalyeye takılıp yere yuvarlandı. benden böyle aptalca bir saldırı beklemiyordu. hemen silahını aldım ve amirin başına dayayarak dışarı çıktım. polisler beni görünce silahlarını çıkarttılar. bırak onu falan. dedim ekmeği getirin lan bana. hangi ekmeği? bimden aldığım ekmeği getirin! diye bağırdım. bunlar yırtılmış poşetin içinde ekmeği getirdiler. o anda ağlayarak annem girdi içeri. oğlum ne işin var burda? diye bağırıyordu. ben ekmeği ona vermelerini söyledim. annem ekmek poşetini anlamsız gözlerle eline alınca kahkaha attım. başarmıştım. kazanılan para 3 lira. görev tamamlandı. Gözümü açtığımda hastanedeydim amk. tek hatırladığım polislerin silahımı elimden kapıp beni sorgu odasına tekrar götürmeleri ve saatlerce dayak yemem. etrafıma bakındım hey man! nerdeyim diye sordum amk? hala oyundan vazgeçmedim. hemşire geldi bakırköy ruh ve sinir hastalıklarında olduğumu söyledi. dedim ben deli değilim amk çöz beni orospu. bu eline iğneyi alınca fuck you bitch! diye bağırdım. iğneyi batırdı gözlerim yavaşca kapanmaya başladı. görüş açımın sol üst tarafında siyah bir kare içerisinde yazılar gördüm. “karakola girdiğinizde polisler silahlarınızı ve paranızın bir kısmını alır. rüşvet vermek zorunda kalırsınız. çıktığınız zaman yıldızlarınız söner. yıldız azaltmak için gizli noktalardaki yıldız simgesini alabilirsiniz” dedim senin amına koyim. şimdimi söylüyorsun bunu amk. Neyse amk 1 ay sonra ben akıl hastasıdır raporuyla hastaneden çıktım. babam ve annem yanımdaydı. bana acıyan gözlerle bakıyolardı amk. ben dedim oğlunuz diaz olacak siz hala inanmıyorsunuz. hastanenin kapısından tam çıkarken ben olduğum yerde durdum. babam döndü yürüsüne lan diye bağırdı. oyundada hastanenin çıkışında bir süre bekletiyordu. gözümü kapadım. sol üste siyah kare geldi tekrar. “hastaneden çıkarken bir miktar paranız gider. kalp simgelerine tıklayarak sağlığınızı arttırabilirsiniz. ambulans görevi için bir araç bulup 2`ye basın” sonra olduğum yerde bir kaç kere zıplayıp yürümeye başladım. o anda babam kemerini çıkarmış bırak öldüreyim şu it oğlu iti diye bağırıyordu. annem yapma bey diye yalvararak babamı tutuyordu. sinirlenmiştim. babamın yüzüne bakıp fuck you! diye bağırdım. kel kafasına bir tane patlattım. sonra hızla yandaki ambulansa doğru koşmaya başladım. Bindim ambulansı açtım sirenleri gidiyorum amk. arabalar çekiliyor önümden. avcılar tarafında bir silah dükkanına gittim. ambulansıda sirenleri açık şekilde dükkanın önüne çektim. girdim içeri dedim bana bazuka ver. adam dedi dalgamı geçiyorsun sen benle. dedim yoksa ak47 falan ver. bu ruhsatın varsa deagle verebilirim dedi. sinir oldum amk. malikane basıcam ben ufacık silahlamı çatışayım. girdim içerde dolanıyorum. baktım beyzbol sopası. aldım bunu elime dedim bunu alıyorum. adam geldi 30 lira dedi. bunun suratına indirdim sopayı yere yığıldı. bir kaç silah alıp ambulansın bagajına koydum. sonra görev yerime doğru gitmeye başladım. Mahalleye geldim. bizim bakkalın önünde durdurdum ambulansı. bagajdan aldım tüfeğimi elime girdim içeri. beni görünce şükrü amca ayağa kalktı. hoşgeldin evladım falan diyor. bide yüzünde aptal bi gülümseme. dayadım silahı bunun alnına göt gibi kaldı. sonra bırak şakayı oğlum ne istiyosan söyle işim gücüm var oyalama beni dedi. itti silahı eliyle. nerden aldın bunu kırtasiyedenmi diye sordu bide. lan ben dellendim. sıktım bunun bacağına bi tane. bu bağırışlar içinde hayvan oğlu hayvan diye bağırıyor. dedim kasadaki bütün paraları koy masaya. bu kasadan 50 lira çıkarıp attı önüme. dedim bu kadarmı amk. dedi süpermarketler küçük esnafı bitirdi biliosun. neyse aldım parayı koydum cebime. sonra raflardaki çubuk krakerlere falan nişan alıp sıkmaya başladım. silah sesini duyan komşular bakkalın önüne toplandılar. şimdi ne yapcağımı biliyorum amk. Çıkardım sol cebimden el bombasını. çektim pimini. salladım dışarı amk. amcalar, teyzeler nasıl kaçışıyor. bu büyük bir gürültüyle patladı. baktım helikopter sesi falan geliyor. polis sirenleri falan. şükrü amca eğilmiş ellerini başının üstüne koymuş. please! don`t shot me! diye bağırıyor. ulan yaşlı başlı adamsın. benim yaşımda çocuğun var amk. kurduğum cümleyi sikeyim. taradım bunu beş dakika falan. baktım polisler bakkalın çevresini sardılar. her yer polis arabası. çatışma başladı. kapana kısıldım amk. sonra merminin teki sağ omzuma isabet etti. kalktım ayağa aspirine diye bağırıyorum. baktım hala kanıyor. korsan cd ondanmı acaba amk. ulan koşarak çıktım dışarı. polisler bana ateş ederken ben bağırarak koşuyorum. helikopter havadan ışık tutuyor bana. kanlar içinde yere düştüm. wasted yazısını görür gibi oldum amk. sonra gözlerim karardı. cehennemin dibini boyladım. keşke eve uğrayıp mutfakta kaldığım yeri kaydetseymişim amk.

Sis Reyis is Back !

The Okinawan Language

Anybody who has studied Japanese and Linguistics will know that Japanese is a part of the Japonic language family. For many years it was thought that Japanese was a language isolate, unrelated to any other language (Although there is some debate as to whether or not Japanese and Korean are related).

Today, most linguists are in agreement that Japanese is not an isolate. The Japonic languages are split into two groups:

Japanese (日本語) and its dialects, which range from standard Eastern Japanese (東日本方言) to the various dialects found on Kyūshū (九州日本方言), which are, different, to say the least.

The Ryukyuan Languages (琉球語派). Which are further subdivided into Northern and Southern Ryukyuan languages. Okinawan is classified as a Northern Ryukyuan Languages. There are a total of 6 Ryukyuan languages, each with its own dialects. The Ryukyuan languages exist on a continuum, somebody who speaks Okinawan will have a more difficult time understanding the Yonaguni Language, which is spoken on Japan’s southernmost populated island.

Japanese and Okinawan (I am using the Naha dialect of Okinawan because it was the standard language of the Ryukyu Kingdom), are not intelligible. Calling Okinawan a dialect of Japanese is akin to calling Dutch a dialect of English. It is demonstrably false. Furthermore, there is an actual Okinawan dialect of Japanese, which borrows elements from the Okinawan language and infuses it with Japanese.

So, where did the Ryukyuan languages come from? This is a question that goes hand in hand with theories about where Ryukyuan people come from. George Kerr, author of Okinawan: The History of an Island People (An old book, but necessary read if you’re interested in Okinawa), theorised that Ryukyuans and Japanese split from the same population, with one group going east to Japan from Korea, whilst the other traveled south to the Ryukyu Islands.

“In the language of the Okinawan country people today the north is referred to as nishi, which Iha Fuyu (An Okinawn scholar) derives from inishi (’the past’ or ‘behind’), whereas the Japanese speak of the west as nishi. Iha suggests that in both instances there is preserved an immemorial sense of the direction from which migration took place into the sea islands.”
(For those curious, the Okinawan word for ‘west’ is いり [iri]).
But, it must be stated that there are multiple theories as to where Ryukyuan and Japanese people came from, some say South-East Asia, some say North Asia, via Korea, some say that it is a mixture of the two. However, this post is solely about language, and whilst the relation between nishi in both languages is intriguing, it is hardly conclusive.

With that said, the notion that Proto-Japonic was spoken by migrants from southern Korea is somewhat supported by a number of toponyms that may be of Gaya origin (Or of earlier, unattested origins). However, it also must be said, that such links were used to justify Japanese imperialism in Korea.

Yeah, when it comes to Japan and Korea, and their origins, it’s a minefield.

What we do know is that a Proto-Japonic language was spoken around Kyūshū, and that it gradually spread throughout Japan and the Ryukyu Islands. The question of when this happened is debatable. Some scholars say between the 2nd and 6th century, others say between the 8th and 9th centuries. The crucial issue here, is the period in which proto-Ryukyuan separated from mainland Japanese.

“The crucial issue here is that the period during which the proto-Ryukyuan separated(in terms of historical linguistics) from other Japonic languages do not necessarily coincide with the period during which the proto-Ryukyuan speakers actually settled on the Ryūkyū Islands.That is, it is possible that the proto-Ryukyuan was spoken on south Kyūshū for some time and the proto-Ryukyuan speakers then moved southward to arrive eventually in the Ryūkyū Islands.”

This is a theory supported by Iha Fuyu who claimed that the first settlers on Amami were fishermen from Kyūshū.

This opens up two possibilities, the first is that ‘Proto-Ryukyuan’ split from ‘Proto-Japonic’, the other is that it split from ‘Old-Japanese’. As we’ll see further, Okinawan actually shares many features with Old Japanese, although these features may have existed before Old-Japanese was spoken.

So, what does Okinawan look like?

Well, to speakers of Japanese it is recognisable in a few ways. The sentence structure is essentially the same, with a focus on particles, pitch accent, and a subject-object-verb word order. Like Old Japanese, there is a distinction between the terminal form ( 終止形 ) and the attributive form ( 連体形 ). Okinawan also maintains the nominative function of nu ぬ (Japanese: no の). It also retains the sounds ‘wi’ ‘we’ and ‘wo’, which don’t exist in Japanese anymore. Other sounds that don’t exist in Japanese include ‘fa’ ‘fe’ ‘fi’ ‘tu’ and ‘ti’.

Some very basic words include:

はいさい (Hello, still used in Okinawan Japanese)
にふぇーでーびる (Thank you)
うちなー (Okinawa) 沖縄口 (Uchinaa-guchi is the word for Okinawan)
めんそーれー (Welcome)
やまとぅ (Japan, a cognate of やまと, the poetic name for ‘Japan’)

Lots of Okinawan can be translated into Japanese word for word. For example, a simple sentence, “Let’s go by bus”
バス行こう (I know, I’m being a little informal haha!)
バスっし行ちゃびら (Basu sshi ichabira).
As you can see, both sentences are structured the same way. Both have the same loanword for ‘bus’, and both have a particle used to indicate the means by which something is achieved, ‘で’ in Japanese, is ‘っし’ in Okinawan.

Another example sentence, “My Japanese isn’t as good as his”
彼より日本語が上手ではない (Kare yori nihon-go ga jouzu dewanai).
彼やか大和口ぬ上手やあらん (Ari yaka yamatu-guchi nu jooji yaaran).
Again, they are structured the same way (One important thing to remember about Okinawan romanisation is that long vowels are represented with ‘oo’ ‘aa’ etc. ‘oo’ is pronounced the same as ‘ou’).

Of course, this doesn’t work all of the time, if you want to say, “I wrote the letter in Okinawan”
沖縄語手紙を書いた (Okinawa-go de tegami wo kaita).
沖縄口さーに手紙書ちゃん (Uchinaa-guchi saani tigami kachan).
For one, さーに is an alternate version of っし, but, that isn’t the only thing. Okinawan doesn’t have a direct object particle (を in Japanese). In older literary works it was ゆ, but it no longer used in casual speech.

Introducing yourself in Okinawan is interesting for a few reasons as well. Let’s say you were introducing yourself to a group.
In Japanese you’d say
みんなさこんにちは私はフィリクスです (Minna-san konnichiwa watashi ha Felixdesu)
ぐすよー我んねーフィリクスでぃいちょいびーん (Gusuyoo wan’nee Felix di ichoibiin).
Okinawan has a single word for saying ‘hello’ to a group. It also showcases the topic marker for names and other proper nouns. In Japanese there is only 1, は but Okinawan has 5! や, あー, えー, おー, のー! So, how do you know which to use? Well, there is a rule, typically the particle fuses with short vowels, a → aa, i → ee, u → oo, e → ee, o → oo, n → noo. Of course, the Okinawan pronoun 我ん, is a terrible example, because it is irregular, becoming 我んねー instead of  我んのー or 我んや. Yes. Like Japanese, there are numerous irregularities to pull your hair out over!

I hope that this has been interesting for those who have bothered to go through the entire thing. It is important to discuss these languages because most Ryukyuan languages are either ‘definitely’ or ‘critically’ endangered. Mostly due to Japanese assimilation policies from the Meiji period onward, and World War 2.
The people of Okinawa are a separate ethnic group, with their own culture, history, poems, songs, dances and languages. It would be a shame to lose something that helps to define a group of people like language does.

I may or may not look in the Kyūshū dialects of Japanese next time. I’unno, I just find them interesting.

Ok though, we all had a good laugh at watching kraglin fail at getting the yaka arrow under control.

But for the next movie wouldn’t it be amazing to see him whistling and wielding that arrow like a champ. Just as well as yondu did if not better, and Peter comments on it and tells him yondu would be proud.

And kraglin cant help but smile

Having a child with Yondu would include :

(Woooo more prompts! Aaaawww Yondu 😊😊 OMG I LOVE HIM BEING CUTE XD! Hope it is as requested and you all like it :3 Gif not mine/found it on google/credit to the original owners.)

-Him and your child being mischievous together and constantly pranking you, only to be stunned whenever you get back at the both of them and just sulk at you until you’d take them both in your arms

-Your child being the perfect mixture of your and his features, making them look distinctive from anyone else but them having their father’s confidence so it never is a problem to them, only for him to be very proud of them

-Your child and him both acting childish and overly excited whenever they spend time looking at cute figurines in a store, only to nearly lose their minds whenever you buy one for each of them or allow him to buy

-Him loving to pick them up out of nowhere and just spending his entire day carrying them over his shoulders, making you laugh to look at them

-Him teaching them to defend themselves despite their young age, only to tell them the harsh truth and that you and him won’t always be there for them, making them work their best

-Your child being fascinated by the Earth and his planet, only to always pester him around with countless of questions and for him to be brave enough to put up a front and only tell them about the good things

-Him getting jealous to see them getting along with the other Guardians but just sulking loudly in his corner until they notice him and run back to hug him

-Him taking you and them away from the rest of the crew to go on a silly family date as he just wants to be left alone with you both, only to always let them choose where they want to go

-Your child learning to whistle from their very young age, only to be mischievous and do so at unexpected times to control his Yaka arrow, scaring you both

-Him admitting to you that they are the joy of his life and that he’d make sure that you and them are both happy by his side

Imagine introducing Leo to the world of fanfictions. He eyed you a bit doubtfully as you explained what fanfictions were. It wasn’t that he wasn’t against the idea; he just didn’t know what they would be like. 

“Is it… inappropriate?” Leo asked, looking a bit uneasy.

You snorted. “Only if you want it to be. You’d have to look up a keyword if you want it to be.” He still looked unsure down at the screen. “No fanfiction is going to be the same. Sure, maybe there’ll be similar themes and plots, but they’re always going to be written differently, depending on the person. There’s angsty ones, romantic ones, action-based ones— the works, Leo. There’s no certain kind; it can be a range of genres and what the fanfiction is about. Think of it as if you drew something for a show you liked, but instead of drawing it, you write it. Lots of people do it.”

“…are there any for Space Heroes?” He asked, a bit interested.

“Let’s see,” you replied, typing in the two words. Sure enough, there were pages of Space Heroes fanfictions. 

You handed the phone to him, and he scrolled through and was looking for any plots that deemed interesting enough to take a look at the first chapter. After a while, he shrugged at you. “I guess I’m just not into—” he stopped short, reading a plot that caught his attention. He started reading the first chapter, and he didn’t bother finishing his sentence. He had to sit down after reading the first chapter. You smiled, looking around and spotting Mikey. You had a mischievous grin on your face.

“Hey, Mikey, wanna see something?”
