    4 ways to travel to Europe from the UK with your Dog

    4 ways to travel to Europe from the UK with your Dog

    Many of us in the UK can’t wait to go abroad on a holiday to somewhere warmer in Europe, say Spain, Greece or Italy. Those days of traveling might become a reality again soon and if you have a dog and you’re planning to take them with you on a European trip then you will find that you have quite a few ways to get there. For us two-legged folk, it is quite simple to hop on the Eurostar train to…

    i dont think i type it enough but cal sounds out bigger words especially less common ones, like con-glo-mor-ate or sub-terr-ain-ean. but then again he also doesn’t use big words a lot so maybe i just need to force him to use big words

    #calais hc #im aware thats not how u spell subterranean but. for the sounding #and then u get krysan who uses a bigger word when she has the chance #ooc

    How many siblings does your OC and what is his/her relationship with them?

    Sparaxis has 7 known siblings, although there is one two? more that they meet later on. Their family is very, uh, complicated? The other siblings have an alright relationship to each other but Sparaxis is kind of a black sheep among them and has been pulling away from their family for years ever since an accident involving their younger sister. Siblings are kind of a senstive subject for them because of this.

    What is your OC’s biggest dream?

    Eura’s your sterotypical “my only love is the sea” captain so her biggest wish is to return to the ocean. She sails the skies out of necessity, not for the love of it.

    What kind of sense of humor does your OC have?

    Philly and Tallis are both pun lovers and tricksters. The pranks on that ship...I would hate it there. Eura and Lillium enjoy both well enough but prefer to watch rather than participate. Ailith, Idella, and Emory all have very dry senses of humour. Ailith leans towards the morbid, but all three of them like outwitting people and making snarky remarks.

    What are your OC’s thoughts on death?

    Calais has kind of a contradictory view on death; they’re resigned to paradise because of their position it’s not something they’re looking forward to. They’ve spent their entire life in service of Ciokruan’s deity, the Creditor, so they don’t really want to spend their afterlife doing more of the same, but that’s what’s been promised to them.

    Send me an OC ask?

    When evacuating at Dunkirk, the British army abandoned all of their equipment including their tanks. The French took about 10 Cruiser MkII tanks and used them against the Germans in the defense of Calais. Their effectiveness or if they even saw combat is not known.

    Oberleutnant Hans Philipp du JG54 (54e escadre de chasse) devant un Messerschmitt Bf 109E-4 (à droite Oberleutnant Werner Pichon-Kalau von Hofe) - Coquelles - Pas-de-Calais - 1er août 1940

    Hans Philipp (17 mars 1917 - 8 octobre 1943) est un as de la Luftwaffe crédité de 206 victoires, principalement sur le front de l'Est. Il est abattu le 8 octobre 1943 par un pilote d'un P-47 Thunderbolt, vraisemblablement Robert S. Johnson. Philipp parvient à s’extraire, mais son parachute ne s'ouvre pas...

    𝐖𝐇𝐄𝐍:  11 maccius 936 𝐖𝐇𝐄𝐑𝐄: la crinière du lion / the lion’s main  𝐖𝐇𝐎: @vaskaofcalais

    It is not everyday that one of Calandre’s advisors deign to visit The Lion’s Mane for matters not related to the Empress, but it is also not everyday that Sidonie Dupont finds herself so close to her wit’s end that there’s practically nowhere else for her to turn. Her jaw practically aches from clenching in frustration at Amelie and her cryptic cries; in shame in response to Calandre’s palpable disappointment; and in unease, too, as it’s beginning to feel as though something bad is going to happen. The Mane, then, serves as a reprieve. If something bad happens here, well, at least it’s expected.

    Odeline forbid Degaré decide to toy with her today. 

    And forbid She does, as the proprietor is nowhere to be found--but Vaska of Calais, current bodyguard to Her Imperial Majesty’s artist and past companion to the Dupont woman in the Obsidienne, is. Without preamble, she claims the seat beside them. “Two drinks, s'il te plaît--one for me, and one for them,” Sidonie calls to the barkeep, motioning to Vaska. 

    “It’s been awhile,” the Court Mage says in lieu of hello, her attention settling on her companion as the barkeep flits away to retrieve their drinks and other requests. She’s not seen Vaska for a couple of years, and certainly not so close to home; she knows them only in the Obsidienne, in the near-dead town that dares to exist near the inky black desert. It’s both odd and bittersweet, seeing them here. Odd, because she’s more accustomed to interacting with them without the pretenses of Court dealings and leering eyes of nosy nobles; bittersweet, too, considering their presence serves as a reminder of better times—of times when she was free to study magic in the way both she and it deserved, of times when she felt less like a collector’s trinket and more like the Empress’ advisor, and, more importantly, friend.

    Two tankards are placed in front of the pair. She nudges one closer to the other. "Have a drink with me, Vaska—for old time’s sake?”

    French words from the North of France (Nord et Nord-Pas-de-Calais)

    I have no idea why, but today I have noticed more local words in my conversations with people - so here is a list of the words you would most likely hear in the Nord and not elsewhere, and that originated here.

    1. Dracher. Ex : Il va dracher toute la journée ! This means that it will rain heavily. Fun fact, in Scots, Dreich means wet, dull, gloomy, dreary, or any combination of these. Though it is likely there are no common roots (dracher certainly comes from draschen in Flamish), I love that the feeling you get from both words is somewhat similar. Miserable and wet weather.

    2. Babache. Ex : Mais t'es babache ou quoi ? It means stupid, slow. It is not very insulting. It is more often used as an adjective.

    3. Wassingue. Ex : C'est trempé, passe-moi la wassingue. A mop.

    4. Braire. Ex : Arrête de braire ! To cry (loudly), as the primary meaning of the word is the sound made by donkeys.

    5. Targniole. Ex : Arrête de braire ou tu vas te prendre une targniole ! A slap, to get brutally slapped in the face.

    6. Je te dis quoi. Ex : Attend qu'il nous appelle puis on te dit quoi ! It can be literally translated as 'I tell you what', but here the what isn't asking for more information/expressing interrogation, it means 'what will happen/how things will go'. This is often the reason for quiprocos between nordistes and parisians.

    7. Caboche. Ex : Mais t'as rien dans la caboche ? (Don't you have anything in the head?) Caboche alone means head (J'ai mal à la caboche). Having nothing in the caboche means you are not very bright.

    8. Petit pain. Ex : Prends-moi deux petits pains à la boulangerie. It means pain au chocolat. An alternative that I have sometimes heard is petit pain au chocolat.

    9. Carabistouilles. Ex : Elle ne raconte que des carabistouilles. It basically means that something is nonsense/harmless lies (bêtises, balivernes). My grandmother always says tarabistouilles and even though she may have invented it, I think it's very nice. In Ch'ti: carabistoulles.

    10. Crayon de bois. Ex : Il me faut un crayon de bois pour le cours d'arts-plastiques. A pencil.

    Now onto the words/expressions I have always used but didn't know they were specifically from the North:

    11. Vingt(e). The number 20 but we pronounce the t. I have actually always felt not pronouncing the t made you sound less serious.

    12. Être à pied de chaussettes. Ex : Dans cette maison, on est tous à pied de chaussettes. To wear only socks.

    13. A toute Berzingue. Ex : Ce fou furieux roulait à toute berzingue. At full speed.

    14. Décarocher. Ex : Le pauvre homme, il décaroche complètement. To lose one's mind. There is this idea of slowly losing grip on things, falling. It is often used in a humorous/emphatic way but the primary meaning remains too.

    15. Nonoche. Ex : T'es complètement nonoche ou quoi ? Simpleton.

    16. Si ça tombe. Ex : Si ça tombe il s'est perdu et ne nous trouvera pas. Maybe/perhaps/if things are like they could be/if anything. It really is hard to translate the connotation here. It comes from the expression "Si ça se trouve", which refers to a possibility or eventuality that is less likely to happen than 'maybe', and I would argue that the former is a bit more fatalist/serious (tomber is more brutal).

    17. Tout partout. Ex : Il a fait tomber la farine, y'en a tout partout ! Everywhere; you are insisting on the fact it really is all everywhere.

    18. A c't'heure. Ex : Y'a plus rien d'ouvert à c't'heure. At this time of the day, literally at this hour. More often used by older generations (40+) but not exclusively.

    Quand on vient dans le Nord on braie 2 fois : quand on arrive et quand on repart !
