Laura Do you think it would be better to see your favorite characters die, or to have to imagine them as old grannies and grandpas drinking prune juice?


xXRossiya AruXx (biggestanimegeek) to see them die. >:D

Tiffany  (tiffanyyy_wang) | 727 comments Agreed.


message 4: by Kriss (new)

Kriss (krisslee) | 334 comments Indeed.


message 5: by Laura (new)

Laura MUAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! *begins designing ways characters who don't die in Mockingjay are going to die.


message 6: by Laura (new)

Laura After the third book comes out, are we going to RP about what happens after? (If anything does...) If we do, can I pu-leeeeeeeeeeeeeeeze be Katniss? Please please please? And if not can I be Peeta, seeing he doesn't die?


message 7: by Nightshade (new)

Nightshade | 1236 comments Umm... I don't think we'd ever do a RP with the actual book characters in it. We might do one with OCs (original characters) that live in the time after Mockingjay, but I dunno. I'm not a mod. Ask Jenn or Swifty or someone.

We create our own rp characters instead of using ones from the actual books O.o


message 11: by Laura (new)

message 45: by Laura (new)

Laura 1) If it's an idea, it's notion
2) If it's an action, it's motion
3) If it's a lotion product, it's lotion
4) If it's a potion, it's potion

I ASKED SIX TEACHERS AND THEY ALL SAID 'MOTION.' So did my friend who does a monthly mock debate. She also says that if anyone thinks it's 'notion,' he or she is a complete idiot, because it is OBVIOUSLY 'motion.'

HAAAAAAAA.


message 47: by Nightshade (new)

Nightshade | 1236 comments Oh, and then my honors English teacher said... *DEEP BREATH*

Originally, a long time ago, it was 'I second the motion,' because in a council, people would move to accept actions. Like...

Council Person 1: I move that the banana be our national fruit!

And if another council person liked the idea, he would say "I second the motion."

But over time, the phrase was used in a slightly different context. For example:

Person 1: Twilight is the most idiotic thing to ever disgrace the universe.
Person 2: I second the notion!

As opposed to...

Person 1: I think we should make Twilight illegal in the United States!
Person 2: I second the motion!

But that's only if you want to use the grammatically correct form of the phrase. Originally it was "I second the motion," but over time, because of situations like Example 1, people started to think it was "I second the notion." Because of this, some started saying it, while those of us who happen to be informed on the history of the subject stick to 'motion,' because we know that it is indeed the correct form of the phrase.

So actually, in Laura's earlier comment in post 52, 'notion' is the grammatically correct word, but it derived from 'motion.'

Conclusion: If Laura wanted to be grammatically correct, she would have used 'notion.' If she wanted to be historically correct, she would have used 'motion.' The historically correct option is better, because, well, it's historically and politically correct. I'd rather be politically correct among diverse people than be grammatically correct among people who are watching my every move for an excuse to correct me.


message 48: by Tiffany (new)

Tiffany  (tiffanyyy_wang) | 727 comments I don't get it.


message 49: by Laura (new)

Laura I was being grammatically correct. Do I look like I read books about the Salem witch trials and how they second motions?

(Maybe I do........XP)


message 50: by Laura (new)

Laura but thanks for the explanation. I actually read the whole thing.
