Righa Forachtae: (Almost) Full Glossary

"Almost" because I had to cut the verb conjugation chart.  Tumblr doesn’t like charts and it was a mess.

(Note that the accents don’t technically have to be in these words—they’re correct and help pronunciation, but not required.)

So for you guys who wanted adjectives and stuff to pad out the original posts about the Highblood Holy Language—or just wanted to know what Gamzee is saying at any given point in Poor Unfortunate Shoals—here, haVE A FUCKTON OF ADJECTIVES.  In fact, have everything that I have of Righa Forachtae, minus the verb charts. :)  (hey, stellatedthoughts, you were asking for this, right? ;D)  

Maitú, leihrei. :)

Basic Parts Of Speech:

No/I refuse: Ahm (informal)/Diúlte (formal)

Yes/I accept: Sa (informal)/ Lacema (formal)

Best/Favorite: Isfe- (e.g. ‘isfecair’ - 'best friend' :oD)

But: Yaóch

If/In the case that: Iet

Just (recently): Ech (I just did that a second ago.)

Just (barely/only): Hedh (I just made it out by the tips of my horns.)

SCBM Agenda

In other news after I finish another chapter of at least one of my fics I want to write some more in the Strong Children Broken Men ‘verse.  Only real choice is about who and where would it be set on the timeline.  Right now thinking about

  • The convoluted and serendipitous story of how Karkat ended up in that particular college in that particular dorm on that particular day and at that particular time of the night.  It was (WAIT FOR IT) …a miracle. :oD
  • Dirk talking to the remaining Vantases about the situation with Gamzee, Ms. Lin speaking up for him and horrified he’s on his own now—basically, Kankri facing the fact he just took away Karkat’s best friend in his time of need and Karkat hates him forever. UnU (he had good intentions and reasoning but he still makes me mad and I want him to know how bad he screwed up.)
  • Summer break of Karkat’s second year, and he takes Gamzee home with him because otherwise Gamzee will mope around his apartment all alone.  Karkat is still living with Kankri and Kankri’s dad.  Awkwardness ensues.
  • Something about tattoos (Gamzee’s, Karkat’s, both, I don’t really care, I just like their tattoos.)
  • Mr. Vantas wrote letters to everyone before he died.  Gamzee’s is long overdue.
The coefficient of contact embarrassment is really, really, really high on amateur rapping. We’re all scarred from “my name is X and I’m here to say” performances by well-meaning if misguided adults.

BASICALLY.  And I can’t ever be sure that when someone starts rapping it’s not going to be really really bad?  So as soon as they start rapping, I literally just get up and sprint.  Just run for the hills. 8T

Heck, even the people who I know are good, I can’t just start in listening to them rapping.  I have to kind of work my way in slowly.  Hold the headphones a few inches from my ear and dip in and out.  Take deep breaths and reassure myself the world is not ending because someone is speaking rhyming words in a rhythmic beat.  

This sounds like I am exaggerating for humorous effect but I really am not.

Things That I Can’t Listen To/That Require Me To Steel Myself For Several Hours Before Listening

  2. Rapping (from anyone who’s not actually a professional rapper) 
  3. Singing by people i know on the internet
  4. Rapping
  5. Voice acting of all kinds
  6. Especially voice acting of my favorite characters
  7. Rapping
  8. My favorite scenes of things being read aloud/voice-acted
  9. Rapping
  10. Frikking rapping.

When a Spirit Dies:
When a forest dies
so does the spirit
when a spirit dies
the forest grows cold
it falls into an endless sleep
gradually forgetting its creator 
the gods do not understand
they see worlds rise and fall
it is nothing to them
I would expect the same of you
but
where as I would not care what the other gods think
knowing that you too will forget
brings me pain
this single regret
can a god’s mind be changed
can one choose to be better
when a spirit dies
i fear
you too
will turn
and forget.

I know you don’t ship GamKar flushed… but holy shit the angst! pale or flushed, this story could end really badly… sorry for the sadness, I will take my leave. *jumps off gamkar ship* *drowns in angst sea*

8D 8D 8D THNAK YOOUU?!?! LOOK AT THAT POETRY AND ART IT IS A BEAUTIFUL NIGHT FOR A LONG DAY. Just slightly confused by the sentiment that the angst is no longer there if they are pale instead of flushed because I read this as pale through and through and it was extremely painful?! XD  Don&#8217;t worry.  That story may have a good bit of hurt (where else would the comfort come from?) but in the end I couldn&#8217;t evnd it sadly.  I&#8217;s my easy-writing vent story, after all! &lt;3

Okay, so I'm fairly confident no one has asked you about this coupling yet. If so (and I missed it), sorry. What are your thoughts on Janezee?

when i started shipping or if i ship it: *POINTS AT QUILLY AGAIN*

my thoughts: How is it so silly and cute and compelling and yet there is a small and concentrated section of its fanbase making really hot stuff for it and I??!!??!?

what makes me happy about them: He really needs someone to feed him up. UuU  And I think she really needs something…different. :T  She’s not had much luck with what she had before, at least.

what makes me sad about them: WHY IS THIS SHIP SO WEIRD.

things done in art/fic that annoy me: This is one of those ones where people tend to write Gamzee mysteriously knowing how to competently do the sex when honestly his non-murderous physical contact with other people—for, like, his whole life—has probably been less than a well-adjusted person gets in like a week. XD

things i look for in art/fic: Generally speaking?  Fluffiness and cute and the two of them coming from very very different backgrounds.  Although QUILLY *glare* has convinced me to ship it black as well and that is a whole different kettle of fish.

my kinks: Uhhhhhh 8?  It seems really weird to make anything between them kinky for some reason, idk.  I read a thing once that was, like, the only fic I’ve ever seen to make “comfortably high together” seem actually cute? :T  All in all, pretty VANILLA (AHAHAHAHA) (LIKE CAKE)

who i’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: I think I have gone over my Gamzee pairings before. XD  Uh, I ship Jane with any/all of the other Alpha kids, and I’m also okay with JaneDave.  Other than that she hasn’t really interacted with many characters and I don’t ship her much. (Seems to be kind of a trend with the human kids, honestly. :D)

my happily ever after for them: Two words for you: BAKERY AU. (yes, AU stands for two words.  Shut up.)

GHB/Sufferer, <> or <3
Anonymous

when i started shipping or if i ship it: Quilly wrote the GHB’s view of the Signless’s execution and I fell in pale love with it.  I can’t ship it red. I can just about ship it as painfully shattered serendipitous diamonds.   8(

what makes me happy about them: Absolutely nothing. 8(

what makes me sad about them: he haD HIM TORTURED TO DEATH 8(

things done in art/fic that annoy me: I’m just really not a fan of pairings where one half has killed the other half in canon. 8(

things i look for in art/fic: Tragedy and terribleness 8(

my kinks: I do not have any. 8(

who i’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: I’m bigger on pale Psiignless and black-diamond Condesce<>GHB. 8I

my happily ever after for them: 8(

in summary: 8(

Rose/Kanaya

when i started shipping or if i ship it: They’re just.  So canon. 8D

my thoughts: Hey look canon lesbians and they’re both so rad and cool and I love them?

what makes me happy about them: They just bounce off each other so well; they’re similar, but also completely different.  They’re both sarcastic and intelligent, but Rose does it in a kind of sharp, almost bittersweet way and Kanaya is, like, wry and obscurely amused?  And sometimes they switch?  I dunno I can’t articulate what I’m talking about. XD

what makes me sad about them: ROSE’S DRINKING.  KANAYA’S LACK OF CONFIDENCE IN HERSELF.  THE FACT THAT I FEEL LIKE THEY’RE NOT ENDGAME AND I WANT THEM TO BE.

things done in art/fic that annoy me: When people write them as just classy dignified queens—they are, but they’re both really silly and fun too, and kind of ridiculous!  Just look at the scene where they got together! :D

things i look for in art/fic: Uh…good characterization?  I feel like they’re both really tricky to get right, but sometimes you read something and you’re like “…ah…yes.  This is what the ship.” 

my kinks: uh, the vampire thing?  For some reason with them specifically, roleplay? :D
who i’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: Grimdorks, and…uh…I don’t think I really have any other red ships for Kanaya?  Vriskan might be good, if someone could write it so I didn’t feel like it was monumentally unfair to Kanaya. :T  
my happily ever after for them: Domestic silly sassy dignified novel-writing clothes-making queens forever and ever and ever. Domestic silly sassy dignified old ladies going to libraries together and giggling over smutty vampire novels. UwU

This just in, Verve is free and awesome and really fun to paint with?  :O  And it&#8217;s a tiny little .exe file that takes like thirty seconds to download?  
I am having so much fun.
