So my school does Anime club every Monday, and yesterday I went to the first meeting. It was cool, we watched the first episode of Free, we explained the difference between Manga and Graphic Novels to the librarian, and we watched some Anime parodies.

It was cool and all, but after the club was over we were all waiting outside for our parents to come collect us from school and a girl announced she was homophobic. She was a bossy ginger who’d also called me sane, she’d said she liked One Direction fanfiction. (I won’t talk about her anymore because I’d rather not insult people with my tumblr.)

I found myself wondering where she had found One Direction fanfiction that wasn’t gay porn because I’m not even in that fandom (bandom?) and I know that that is what the majority of One Direction fanfiction is

When I say One Direction fanfiction I mean fanfiction in general..

Ninth Doctor Feels

Nine’s definition of a great first date: Take the pretty girl or guy you are dating with you and travel through time, take the previously mentioned pretty guy or girl to the future, show the what has become of their species (In Rose’s case, humanity, be we should be flexible because, aliens guys) , and let them watch their home planet die.

It’s sad though because Nine did that to try and reach out to Rose, he wanted to share some of the pain he felt from losing his home planet and species in the time war, and he thought that maybe, just maybe, by letting Rose see Earth die she’d be able to understand some of the pain he’d felt and even though she could still go home to her planet in the past and his home was gone forever, she’d understand and they’d be able to get just a little closer.

Aren’t dates with the Ninth Doctor fun!


Japanese honorifics

  • -San: is the most common honorific and is equivalent to Mr., Miss, Ms. or Mrs. It is the all-purpose honorific and can be used in any situation were politeness is required
  • -Sama: is one level higher than "-san" and is used to confer great respect
  • -Dono: this one comes from the word "tono" which means "lord". It is an even higher level than "-sama" and confers utmost respect
  • -Kun: suffix used at the end of boys' names to express familiarity or endearment. It is also sometimes used by men among friends, or when addressing someone younger or of a lower station
  • -Chan: is used to express endearment, mostly towards girls. It is also used for little boys, pets, and even among lovers. It gives a sense of childish cuteness
  • Bozu: informal way to refer to a boy similar to the English terms of "kid" or "squirt"
  • Senpai/ Sempai: title which suggests that the addressee is one's senior in a group or organization. It is most often used in a school setting, where underclassmen refers to their upperclassmen as "sempai". It can also be used in the workplace, such as when a newer employee addresses an employee who has seniority in the company
  • Kohai: is the opposite of "sempai" and is used towards underclassmen in school or newcomers in the workplace. It connotes that the addressee is of a lower station
  • Sensei: literally meaning "one who has come before", this title is used for teachers, doctors, or masters of any profession or art
  • -[Blank]: is usually forgotten in these lists, but it is perhaps the most significant difference between Japanese and English. The lack of honorific means that the speaker has permission to address the person in a very intimate way. Usually only family, spouses, or very close friends have this kind of permission. Known as yobisute, it can be gratifying when someone who has earned the intimacy starts to call one by one's name without the honorific. But when that intimacy hasn't been earned, it can be very insulting.
