Iroha 2nd Season Walkthrough

This will get you the Super Happy Ending. I don’t know why, but it seems like 98% is the highest you can get on this one. Why is it always Iroha’s routes that can’t reach 100%? :/

Super Happy Ending Achieved!

This is Duolingo, a language-learning website/app that deserves some serious recognition. It offers over 10 languages for English speakers, as well as courses for non-English speakers around the world, and they’re in the process of adding more. 

But wait, I don’t want to do any more schoolwork! Not to worry little one, Duolingo is actually more like a game. You can compete with friends, and earn “lingots” (which are basically Duolingo money) to buy power-ups, extra activities, and bonus skills - like Flirting.

I’m already taking a language, what do I need this for? 

It’s not really a secret that most school language courses (in America, anyway) suck and only teach you to speak the language at about a third grader’s level. Which is why Duolingo is so freaking awesome.

Teachers can’t give every student individualized attention, but Duolingo can. If you’re not learning the way you want to or as much as you want to in the classroom, Duolingo is a really great resource. It’s easy, tailored to you, and really effective.

image

Duolingo tracks your progress and reminds you when you haven’t studied for a while or need a refresher on something. Already semi-fluent in a language? No problem, just take a shortcut to more advanced subjects or test out of the lesson. 

The lessons start with the basics (he, she, hello, thank you, etc) and move up to harder stuff. Duolingo focuses on vocabulary first, so you can learn the language and then the grammar that goes with it - much simpler than the system most schools use. It also tracks the number of words you’ve learned and how well you know them.

image

And you don’t even have to write out the flashcards!

Duolingo is perfect for reviewing everything you forgot over the summer or giving you the extra help you need. And if you’re trying to learn a language on your own, it’s fantastic - you don’t have to create your own lessons. Whether you’re trying to learn your second, third, or fifth language, I seriously recommend Duolingo.

Okay, what else?

Duolingo also has discussion boards, where you can ask for help with a hard lesson, make new friends, watch for updates, and share your achievements.

Even better is the Immersion feature. It won’t send you to Spain or France, but it’s pretty awesome. Duolingo takes real articles from the internet, which users translate. You can translate articles from your native language into the language you’re learning or vice versa, which gives you more experience and makes the Internet more universal.

You can suggest new languages and track Duolingo’s progress in creating new courses. Bilinguals (older than 13) can help to create these courses. Duolingo has a long list of courses that can be contributed to, like Punjabi, Hebrew, and Vietnamese. Oh, and Dothraki, Klingon, Sindarin, and Esperanto.

And the best part? IT’S COMPLETELY FREE. 

If you love languages or just want to pass French class this year, USE DUOLINGO. Download the app and practice a language while you wait for the bus instead of playing Angry Birds!

Coolest app I’ve ever downloaded.

but have you considered:

  • strong females who don’t denounce femininity or being girly
  • strong females who are “like every other girl” bc why the hell not girls are rad
  • strong females who tear down the culture of girls hating on other girls
  • strong females who are proud to be feminists
  • strong females who support and acknowledge trans women
  • strong females who understand that being strong isn’t synonymous with manly or with “acting like a man”

Glass headstones

Imagine a graveyard full of these on a sunny day. It would be so beautiful.

I would position mine so that every day when the sun was in the right position it would set fire to the roof of someone I hated, thus achieving revenge from beyond the grave every single day.

There are two kinds of people

High in the Italian alps, within the famous mountain range called the Dolomites, separating the Funes valley from the Gardena valley, sit the breathtaking Odle mountains. The Dolomites were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in August 2009, and have been called some of the most beautiful mountain landscapes found anywhere in the world with its sheer cliffs, vertical walls, and deep valleys.

Tumblr’s search function is for some reason messing up the formatting on my Elliot walkthrough, even though the reblog of that is perfectly fine and has all the bullet points, sigh…

Also, I will be writing a review for Elliot, but that will not be today. HnKnA is way too heavy to write up just after finishing it.

Yili Apricot Valley, China. Every year, these rolling hills in Xinjiang explode into a puffy sea of pink and white. As the largest groves of apricots in the region, this flowering signifies the beginning of the fruiting season, while also transforming the landscape into something other-worldly.

Being a nice person is so fun

Waiter messes something up? You can see the relief on their faces when you don’t scream and swear at them about it

Extra tickets at an arcade/prize place? Watch a little kid’s face light up when you give them a bunch of tickets

There are too many assholes in this world. Be a nice person.

I thought it was really interesting that Alice doesn’t actually like her normal, day-to-day dress. She mentioned a couple times in the beginning that she likes simpler clothes, and only really wears her outfit because Lorina (unknowingly) forces it on Alice with her expectations.

So I think Alice likes the simple-cut and sexy dresses

image

Blood has good taste in fashion. I really like that dress too.

And it’s perfectly natural for girls to discover what they like and don’t like. It’s part of learning who you really are and what you, yourself (not other people) prefer. It’s about making yourself happy, and not the world, because frankly, the world doesn’t give two shits about your happiness in life. So, giving yourself satisfaction is an important part of living.

However, because Alice associates “sexuality” with the Bad Girl Image, she doesn’t like that she’s attracted to this fashion. While being sexual is neither inherently good nor bad, Alice percieves that it is something to be ashamed of and hidden away. Remember, she’s from a respectable, moderately wealthy family in society and her idol is Lorina, who is dressed from head to toe in frilly, puffy clothes that leave everything to the imagination (looking like an overstuffed shepherdess in the process). She shouldn’t be attracted to these clothes, yet she is.

And Alice doesn’t like that she’s attracted. She wants to please her sister, not find her own preferences.

Ultimately, she’s hindering her own growth by being stubborn and clinging to Lorina’s ideal, while at the same time never actively trying to reach that ideal and becoming perfect herself.

So, she deprecates herself for never trying to be perfect, yet never moves to become perfect, and so insults herself again for never trying. It’s a vicious cycle of self-punishment.

Had to use a guide from the original japanese game, but FINALLY got Elliot’s Stay Ending
