yeah exactly!! i feel like the prayer can sometime get lost or loose some meaning if you try to cram too much in there so i like that one. esspecially since i was actually able to remeber it! so if i'm ever in an uncomfy situation i can just say it in my head and feel a bit stronger
Here’s an even shorter one if you have trouble with memorization or dyslexia or laziness or whatever the fuck.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
WAIT WHAT IS UP WITH THE SPANISH COVER??? THAT GIVES AWAY THE MOST INTERESTING PART OF THE BOOK ON LITERALLY THE FRONT COVER OF THE BOOK!! That ruins the ENTIRE POINT of chapter 61!!
Yeah that was exactly my reaction when I saw
But tbh I am so used to spanish translations (i.e. title translations) being so fucked up in movies and books that it didn’t surprise me. I was kinda pissed yeah but not surprised
Turns out they liked the quote so much that they used it for the title. Okay I love the quote, too, and ‘Carry On’ doesn’t translate nicely into spanish but, still, I would’ve tried to come up with something that wouldn’t give away part of the plot.
As a translator myself, I don’t get the need many spanish translators seem to have to change movie and book titles completely. Anyway, I still think the spanish readers can enjoy the book and not be 100% spoiled about chapter 61. Plus, before reading the book, after Fangirl, you already know (or have really high hopes) that snowbaz is going to happen, so.
Since I can’t unread the original version, I can’t really say if the title spoiled the book for me, so I can’t have an objective opinion on the subject. Maybe we could find someone who read it in spanish for the first time?
¿Alguien ha leído ‘Moriré Besando a Simon Snow’ sin haber leído su versión en inglés, ‘Carry On’?
I think this is an interesting topic to have a discourse about. What do you think, @simonandtyrannus?
Re. TERF-hating: Pro-QT beliefs are taken to be axiomatic, no different from "be yourself"; the righteous of this world want you to be yourself, not keep you down. Very like when liberals defend BDSM and high heels as free choices: The righteous want free choice; killjoy radicals want to take some choices off the table. Genderists can't see how QT beliefs COULD harm anyone else, thus TERFs aren't protecting anyone, they're just meanies and probably trans themselves (see: closeted gay homophobes)
Yeah exactly. Our politics aren’t “fun”, they don’t make people “feel good” (surface level). It’s easy to dislike, it doesn’t seem like we’re “doing anything” (false) but complaining (i.e. being critical but whatever). Queer theory, liberalism, genderism, post modern theory, whatever doesn’t see an issue with the status quo, just that the individual hasn’t found their benefit from it yet (a false but appealing idea!!)
I don’t blame them. It’s easy to think that way. But even when I was “anti” feminist, catholic, self hating, conservative 16 year old, you wouldn’t have been able to convince me bio sex is a social construct. It’s bananas!!! It’s anti intellectual!!!!
literally all of that was super relatable, I’ve toyed with the idea of being nb/not being cis exactly, but my gender doesn’t feel like a high priority to me. like it’s not that i’m not a girl per se. but I am very uncomfortable with expressing femininity and im still trying to hash out why.
yeah exactly. i guess, maybe having femininity be so enforced on us rather than girl being treated as a default blank slate the way men are. its a lot to pick apart and untangle
like at their cores Burr and Kunikida are very different but in terms of personality and demeanor they are virtually the same
On the other hand at their cores Hamilton and Kunikida are both very stubborn, direct, passionate, persistent about what they believe in but their personalities are entirely different because Hamilton keeps taking risks that he can’t always afford to take because yeah he doesn’t seem to care about anything other than creating a legacy for himself. Of course he cares about his family but yeah
And the one verse in Wait For It oh boy yeah definitely reminds me of him and his relationship to Dazai mmmmm
