Pretty Tumblr Themes
My name's Rachel.  I'm a writer, reader, and baker.  I love the Queen's Thief series, the Gateway Chronicles, Diana Wynne Jones, Legend of Sun Knight, Harry Potter, Superwholock, FMA, and Monty Python.  I'm studying graphic design and love Photoshop and Illustrator. I also like cupcakes.  And red pandas.  It's been my dream since I was eight to publish a novel, but I figure I have to pay the bills somehow.  So, graphic design.  For now.  ^_^  Also, I've written a novel called "First World" and you can find the first chapter on my blog here.

CHAPTER 215

I’ll come scream with you - I was so not expecting that ending!  I thought maybe…it would be Kyoko…but AHHHH!  I can’t wait for the next chapter!!!


squeeneytodd:

the next skip beat arc is gonna FEATURE KYOKO’S MOM and im even more excited that the cain heel stuff is over IVE BEEN WAITING SO LONG FOR THIS

Exactly, exactly, exactly!  I’m super excited - I’ve been waiting since the very first mention of Kyoko’s mom for the time that she’d appear.  I couldn’t bear it if the manga ended and none of her part was explained.  Oooh, this is going to be so GOOD!!!


Ahhh, Skip Beat updated (finally), and I cannot function properly as a human being right now - that twist, that twist!  *babbles incoherently*  I haven’t been this excited for the next chapter for a while, but now - frix, I want that next chapter!

*sets entire english language on fire*


So this is actually a half-cool half-frustrating phenomenon called a cran morpheme.

Cran morphemes are morphemes that don’t have a meaning outside of the thing they designate. The ur-example, of course, is cranberry. Unlike blueberry (blue + berry), where the first morpheme is somewhat descriptive of the actual berry itself (blueberries are, after all, blueish), the cran- in cranberry doesn’t give you any more help than “this designates the type of berry we call cranberries”. The snozz- of snozzberry is similar.

It is true that cran- comes eventually from “crane” and that cranberries might have been named that because cranes ate them or something, but appealing to this invokes the etymological fallacy. That is, no one who uses or learns the word today thinks of cranes when they talk about cranberries. (Etymologists, lexicographers, and linguists don’t count as native speakers, as usual.)

Even so, the etymology doesn’t help us here, because the word that the cuttle- of cuttlefish comes from just means “cuttlefish” anyway. It’s cuttles all the way down.

To celebrate, because that’s awesome… have some truly awful puns, because of course.

When Gen fails to take good advice from his wife and gets burned for it: “I know, I know. Don’t say ‘Attolia so’.”

That poor guard, though. Eugenides may be a total badass, but living with him? All the time?…
