fish shaming [x]
jesus christ i’ve been waiting for this
man, i TOLD my mother in law her pleco wasn’t the only fish in the world to spit stones and marbles around to harass their owners!
This post was inspired by years and years of watching movies, series, and fanfics royally and hilariously fuck up the use of names in the Russian language, coming to the point where, if I see another pair of best buddies call each other by full name, I will shoot something, I swear to God.
There are 3 ways people in Russia address each other, and they denote different levels of formality, and the relationship between the speakers. You should know this stuff if you wanna write anything that includes Russian people talking to each other, because if you get it wrong, it will be, alternatively, hilarious or cringe-worthy. I have seen soo much of this in fanfic it’s not funny anymore. So read up y’all!
1. Name + Patronymic.
A patronym, or patronymic, is a component of a surname based on the given name of one’s father, grandfather or an even earlier male ancestor. (thank you, Wikipedia!) A patronymic is not a middle name. Russian people don’t have middle names, period. But we all have patronymics!
Used towards: your teacher, your big boss, a senior citizen with whom you don’t have a close relationship (say, your classmate’s grandma), your doctor, any kind of professor or scholar when you address them formally, a client when you’re in the service industry/work with people (not always, but very often).
Example: Ivan Petrovich, Sergey Vladimirovich, Anna Anatolyevna, Maria Sergeevna, etc
a dystopia where in order to have some semblance of decent human rights you have to fit into a set of specific criteria based on things such as race, gender, sexuality, and income, the ideal combination of which is met only by a small portion of society oh wait
if we put chris hemsworth, chris pratt, chris pine, and chris evans into a room together what would happen
GUYS GUYS GUYS
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY WAS LITERALLY WRITTEN BY A FEMALE ROCKET SCIENTIST
SHE’S THE FIRST WOMAN TO EVER WRITE A MARVEL MOVIE
WHY IS THIS NOT GETTING TALKED ABOUT
LISTEN UP KIDDOS
Dominion is a new show. It’s really really really good. It’s only been 6 episodes but it’s already amazing. It contains great characters that are diverse in pretty much every way possible—race, religion, gender, sexuality, etc. They’re equally main and badass. I can go on forever about why you should watch it.
NOT TO MENTION THEIR AMAZING ANGEL WINGS.
SO THIS THURSDAY, EPISODE 7 WILL AIR!! DEPENDING ON VIEWS AND NUMBER OF TWEETS, IT WILL BE DECIDED IF WE GET SEASON 2.
If you guys could help us it would be really great ahhh.
The show is also the same genre as Supernatural. Main characters include Michael, Uriel and Gabriel. So if you’re an Spn fan, you would actually really enjoy the episode.
I tweeted the producer and lead actor as u see in the screenshot. Don’t let me down *sobs*
oh, and for those of you asking, it’s on SyFy!
Wait, so you’re telling me this is a show similar to SPN but with representation? With more than just cishet white dudes?
Sign. Me. Up.
