Oh man I just thought of the worst quoteswap graphic of all time.  *pause*  I have to make it.

My OT3 graphics would be a lot less depressing if all of them weren’t dead.

…so yesterday I watched the first couple of episodes of Rebels solely based on the fact that a certain droid made an appearance.  Still a little iffy on the style (It’s mainly due to the hair looking so plastic), but the show itself isn’t actually half bad? I’ll probably keep watching it cause I’m kind of interested to see how it develops. So here’s a really rough drawing of Sabine, cause why not? I honestly just wanted to draw her hair.

Also, I really think Disney XD missed the opportunity to have a pretty solid sci-fi action block. (I will forever be bitter about the treatment of Uprising and Motorcity)

Actually, the ironic thing about this post is that now that I’m no longer in Latin 101, I’ve learned like a million agricultural terms from the Epodes.  (And, to be fair, there’s a lot of murder and sex too.)

Yeah, but how do you say bathroom (or whatever they called them in Rome or Athens)? It hasn’t come up for me, though I guess I can ask where the baths are. The docks are sort of the equivalent of the train station, so that’s covered. Still, I only learned how to murder people in 3rd year Spanish.

Also, do you know what those agricultural terms are in English? Every time I have to read something at all agricultural I just kind of go “I guess I’ll have to trust that the dictionary is translating into English, even though I have never heard this word before.”

Latrina, latrinae!  That one I know from all the military stuff I’ve done in the past; it hasn’t come up in any of my actual Latin classes.

With the agricultural stuff, I have the advantage of having grown up in farming country, so that helps, and I’ve picked a lot of it up from reading about agriculture in the middle ages and early modern periods for various reasons.

You are so lucky. I’m still waiting for somebody to come out with a dictionary that translates my Latin-English dictionary (also sometimes my Greek textbook, but that’s usually because of Britishisms).

(Though TBH if I had one of those dictionaries, some sections would probably come out sounding “strong like a tree or a tree, not like the plant part of a plant” which is, um, less than helpful. “Next, the farmer uses a sharp farm implement to do something farmy”. Possibly I’ve discovered why this dictionary doesn’t exist.)

Man, my Latin-English dictionary (I’ve got the Pocket Oxford Latin Dictionary) is full of Britishisms, and I know about 90% of them, but sometimes the phrasing is just so strange.

*ponders* how different is medieval latin to actual Roman?  Aside from latin classes (which was exercises and textbooks), the only big chunk of latin I ever translated was the Bayeux Tapestry.  Because Dad was too cheap to pay for headphones.

Hmm, I haven’t done any medieval Latin since I took 203.  I think the grammar’s a bit different?  Word order’s less convoluted.  But even classical Latin goes completely over my head half the time.

Rules such as ‘Write what you know,’ and ‘Show, don’t tell,’ while doubtlessly grounded in good sense, can be ignored with impunity by any novelist nimble enough to get away with it. There is, in fact, only one rule in writing fiction: Whatever works, works.

House of Many Ways as a live action movie

"Now," said Princess Hilda, at least as efficiently as the Witch, "it only remains for us to say goodbye to our kind, helpful, if somewhat eccentric guests, and wave them off in their castle. Come along, all of you."
"Woops!" said Calcifer and shot away up the chimney.
Sophie stood up, dislodging Morgan’s thumb from his mouth. Morgan woke, looked round, saw that his father was there, and looked round some more. His face crumpled up. “Dinkle,” he said.
"Where Dinkle?" He started to cry.
"Now look what you’ve started!" Sophie said to Howl.
"I can always turn into Twinkle again," Howl suggested.
"Don’t you dare!" Sophie said, and marched away into the damp hallway after Sim.
Five minutes later, they were all gathered on the front steps of the Mansion to watch Sophie and Howl hauling the struggling, crying Morgan through the door of the castle. As the door shut on Morgan’s yells of “Dinkle, Dinkle, Dinkle!” Charmain bent and murmured to Waif in her arms, “You did protect the country, didn’t you? And I never even noticed!” 
By this time, half the people in High Norland were gathered in Royal Square to stare at the castle. They all watched with disbelief as the castle rose slightly into the air and glided toward the road that led southward. It was hardly more than an alley, really. “It’ll never fit!” people said. But the castle somehow squeezed itself narrow enough to drift away along it and out of sight.
The citizens of High Norland gave it a cheer as it went.

I have a tendency to binge order stuff on Amazon (I don’t want to talk about it), so me getting a package is basically a case of me going, “WOW I WONDER WHAT I GOT THIS TIME oh look, it’s three Star Wars books, what a surprise.”  (It’s an even toss if it’ll be Star Wars or kitchen paraphernalia.)

That’s be Star Wars: Vol. 3: Rebel Girl, Star Wars: Darth Maul - Son of Dathomir, and Star Wars: A New Dawn in hardback (I already have it in ebook), because the crazy EU people horrified me and I felt an overwhelming urge to support the new books.
