  3. Summary

    "The Dai Bendu language was spoken by the members of the ancient Order of Dai Bendu on the frozen planet of Ando Prime. The name of the Je'daii Order was forged in that language."

    "Every language is like a one-of-a-kind species. It captures unique conceptualizations of the world and has its own ways of constructing words, phrases and sentences for communicating ideas. As we compare the words and structures of various languages, we come to a greater understanding of our world. (...) Language captures how we perceive the world around us and how we relate to one another, it defines who we are. The Mother tongue language we grow up with is the one used to express what is in our hearts; our heart language."

    "Studying language is invaluable for learning about other cultures and mapping their respective developments, histories, myths, customs, etc. Linguistics also helps us understand and document geographical /environmental influences, periods of migration/diaspora, origin of certain spiritual beliefs, etc. through the study of things like cognates, shared myths between cultures, language families, and tracking differences in word usage and dialects over a long period of time."

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The single most cathartic thing I've ever read and possibly the most compelling genderbend in the fandom. A little close to home at times.

    Summary

    “Back!” He shouts, propelling himself with one foot backward toward the alleyway, and in a moment he can see Tokoyami’s Dark Shadow go paper-thin as it stretches horizontally in a shield and Kirishima’s skin hardens and his breath billows out in front of him before -

    The entire Tower is engulfed in a glacier.

    Summary

    Over the course of what was supposed to be a routine job, Paranormal Investigator Midoriya Izuku uncovers a long-forgotten curse, meets a shadow with the voice and eyes of a boy, and discovers a plot that has the potential to destroy the entire world.

    Not necessarily in that order.

    Wonderful, grounded magic, a race to save the world, some beautiful prose, and a love story that has the romantic in me squirming like crazy

    Summary

    Izuku's mom told him to stay away from the forest behind their house. She told him that monsters preyed on little green haired boys just like him and would drag them into the trees kicking and screaming...

    She told him nightmarish stories just to scare him away, and then prayed to whatever god there is that Izuku would grow up and grow out of his love for that darkened forest.

    But he never did.
