Disney Princesses: Stand your Ground by AiriKanda

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. There is something so beautiful about perception, how different things can be in others' eyes. I...

Soft gerbera 1 by FrancescaDelfino

I have three words- I LOVE THIS!!!! What a great way for me to already celebrate a perfect day! :icontearyguyplz: i love everything about this picture-...


Hey guys! I was tooooo tired to write! :yawn: Did you miss me? :aww: Well, I hope you did :blush: Few things scattered here and there, so yeah, I was busy....

BUT NOW I HAVE SUMMER VACATION!!!! :squee: 4 month duration.... can Americans tell me how it's like for them? Thanks.

Back to the lesson, I last told you about いーけいようし; the adjectives ending in  'い' and now you also know about declension... prepare to be impressed, planet! :iconsuperlaplz: There is another type of けいようし which is MUCH easier, trust me! :phew: These.... end with ’な’

There are only two types, and this is the last one! How cool is that?? :wow:

Here it comes.... :clap: :clap:
:iconcuteicondividerplz: :iconcuteicondividerplz: :iconcuteicondividerplz:

ーな けいようし(Adjectives ending in な)
しんせつな- kind :aww:
しずかな- calm/quiet :meditate:
べんりな- convenient :woohoo:
きれいな- clean/beautiful :flirty:
すきな- like :nod:
きらいな- dislike :no:
たいせつな- important :faint:
ような- like**

** :oops: Okay, there is a HUGE difference between 'すきな' 'ような';
かのじょはおもちゃがすきです。 :icondollplz: She likes toys

あかちゃんのようなをなきます。 :iconbabyplz: I cry like a baby.

すきな- Facebook-style like
ような- Comparison/valley girl speech like

With that settled... we have more :salute:

Declining なーけいようし
The word is called 'declining'; using declension for an adjective. Sigh, English :facepalm:

Okay, for negating sentences, easy as :iconpiesplz: !
Take this sentence-:
きょうはしずかなです :iconcloudsplz: It is calm today.

If it's stormy outside; say...
きょうはしずかではありません! :iconthunderplz:

Easy, right? :D Just write ではありません like normal. A light, easy moment! :B

Which is EXACTLY why there are different ways of saying the SAME sentence.... :nuu:

WTF am I talking about? :shrug:
:iconcolorheartsplz: :iconcolorheartsplz: WTF I am talking about :iconcolorheartsplz::iconcolorheartsplz:
So you see, with なーけいようし; we cannot just slap the adjective anywhere we want to; mainly because it sounds stupid & being the laughing stock sucks. This is why you cannot say this-:

あのすしはおいしいでした (Correct form-: あのすしはおいしかったです。) :iconsushiplz:

これはきれいなたたみです。 :iconmatplz:
This seems incredibly pointless, right? :shakefist: So it seems... but seriously, I leave it to you; say the sentence right above thrice without tiring yourself. I dare you! :x

Done? I thought so...

Why the bold sentence is absolutely wrong-:
A- It's tiring as hell to speak it
B- The subject and adjective are not in agreement.

B happens because of A. It's called causation!, :idea: What B means is that ’これ’ & ’きれいな’ are just not compatible; like fire and ice or psychic-types and dark-types. Yeah, I love Pokemon :giggle: How to correctly say said sentence; there are 2 ways-:

これはきれいたたみですね!- This is a freaking beautiful mat! :squee:

このたたみはきれいなです!- This mat is beautiful.

:#1: The adjective is in correspondence with the subject always.’The adjective will always end in 'な’ if the subject is これ、それ、あれ and if it is この、その、あの; delete 'な’ :#1:

This requires a little practice ^^;
由紀子さんはきれいなです。 :iconsnowplz: Miss Yukiko is pretty.

満ちるくんと美代子ちゃんは小さなです。 :iconbabyplz: Michiru and Miyoko are small.

桜ちゃんはしずかしょうじょです。 Sakura is a quiet girl.

Okay, I'll simplify for you :) Every time the adjective is BEFORE the noun, add 'な’; if there is NO noun, do not write 'な’.

:#1: If adjective is BEFORE noun, 'な’. If NOT, no 'な’ :#1:

That logic is used for これ and この. この always precedes a noun saying what is is, but これ is more direct; it explains succinctly what said thing is.

Past and its negation
:iconwhiteroseplz: :iconwhiteroseplz: :iconwhiteroseplz: :iconwhiteroseplz: :iconwhiteroseplz:
Now that we know how to express ourselves in successfully calling out bullshit. we can now pat ourselves in the backs- we're awesome! :woohoo: But what about complex stuff, like memories; old flames, good old days, hell even what you ate for last night! Who wouldn't want to reminisce :iconromanticplz:
Question- how? Well...

いつ私はこどもでした、おかしはたいせつなでした :iconcandyplz: Means- When I was a kid, sweets were important.

If only :D But still, just like any normal sentence, just add でした after the adjective. Done :highfive:

Now what if what you said was utter bullshit and your significant other just barges in with his/her/their story? Well...

Long story short, they weren't! :facepalm:

So yeah, just that. Add ではありません before でした. That was a real breather, wasn't it? :airborne:

So... we're finished! :iconyaayplz: Summary-:
:bulletgreen: なーけいようし is the 2nd type of adjectives in Japanese. It varies based on whether nouns are there or not. If there is a noun, ’な’; if none, do not write ’な’. Like suffixes
:bulletgreen: Sentence structure for above-:
これ、それ、あれーはーAdjective withなーです。
この、その、あのーSubject-はーAdjective withoutなーです。
:bulletgreen:Sentence structure otherwise-:
Subject-はーAdjective withoutなーです。
Subject/PronounはーAdjective withなーNounーです。
:bulletgreen: Negation of present sentence-:
:bulletgreen: Past tense-:
:bulletgreen:  Past negation (disproving former bullshit)

Phew! I wish it wasn't so long... but you guys are smart enough to figure it out! :iconyaayplz: Have fun! :headbang:

Long Adoring Note

Fri Mar 20, 2015, 6:54 AM by AbstractWater:iconabstractwater:
Dear my watchers and public,

I want you to know a few things right now.  Having stayed on this site for 3 years, since I was 15; I really feel proud to be part of this place. :happybounce: How I got here? It all started with staring at Pokemon pics. And there were SO many talented artists who I felt deserved so much praise. At first I resisted, but then I agreed to self; i must join this 'deviantart' website. And you know what? I haven't regretted it a bit! :dalove:

By far, one of my BEST decisions of my life! I me some people online who proved to me that the Internet can also be awesome. I made cool friends, and learned a lot. Complete strangers have stuck up for me when trolls pissed me off; and I got the favour in return when I least expected it ( :iconthe-insane-puppeteer: Thanks so much for the premium membership gift you gave me! I still remember it to this day :love: )

I heard a lot of shit about this place online- saying it was laden with deranged perverts.... well I sure am blessed then, not having met any ;) Thank you guys so much for being so awesome! I hope you guys stay awesome, and I'll send you my love somehow. :) You'd be so damn surprised, how much small gestures would help; from wishing on birthdays to telling someone you care; damn right you'd be! :iconhappytearsplz:

It's because of you guys that I am so intensely into photography, or that I draw; just to feel glad that both you and I can be happy seeing new stuff each day. Relax! I'm not leaving! :ohnoes:

Just thought of doing this now :aww:

So, good luck with everything and God/Goddess/Science bless you! :innocent: :iconsweethugplz:

Hi! So I was wondering if I could use one of your photographs for an art project. The project is to take a photograph(that has to be taken by someone you know) and make a watercolour painting of it. 
So I was just wondering if I could use one of yours? Since they're really beautiful. ^^
