These pictures were WORTHY of my viewing and favouriting. FEEL HONORED!



for those of you who are confused, which many of you are, I'm about to explain the origin of my best friend's character name, sempai.

most of you are familiar with "senpai," and due to its... meme status I guess... you may think it means someone you're practically obsessed with, to the point where, if they "notice" you, you have a freakin orgasm all over the place. ah... yes, 'murica does love to misconstrue the antics of over-dramatized female anime characters, don't we?

here's what it REALLY is: "In Japan, senpai is an upperclassman or upperclasswoman, someone of a higher age, or senior. The mentor system is found at all levels of education, and in sports clubs, businesses, and informal or social organizations." however, the word can also be spelled "sempai." here is the reason: "There are different ways to render Japanese with roman letters. The process is called "Romanization" and the most widely used systems are 'Hepburn', 'Kunrei-shiki' and 'Nihon-shiki' (in that order). 先輩 (せんぱい) is romanized as "senpai" in all three systems but was romanized "sempai" in the Traditional Hepburn romanization until the Modified Hepburn romanization was introduced in 1954." the N character (ん) is read as an M sound. BOTH SPELLINGS ARE CORRECT.

lauren and I went to high school together, but she was one grade above me, and is a few months older than me. because I was attempting to learn Japanese at the time, we sort of exchanged phrases back and forth for fun. I referred to her as "sempai" because she was like a mentor that I looked up to. I chose "sempai" instead of "senpai" because it looked and sounded better, and to this day, I spell it with an M. I was known as "smiley-chan," "chan" because I was younger, and "smiley" was half ironic; I was gothic in my first two years of high school, and due to me not being on medication, I was often extremely depressed, and hormones made things worse. however, my friends, including lauren, always said that, when I smile, it's enough to make everyone around me smile.

though the nicknames themselves don't exist between us as adults, I decided to name her cartoon character "sempai" to keep the idea of my respect toward her alive. she's always been like an older sister to me, so naturally, I look up to her.

so no, her name is not sempai because of the stupid meme, which originated in 2012 (she's been sempai since 2006, I believe), she is sempai because of the REAL Japanese definition. half of my family is Japanese, so I feel pretty insulted that the word has become something it's not, but then again, many words get fucked up by the youngins, don't they? I hope I clarified some confusion...

if you're even reading this, because I know that some of you, like me, were annoyed with that stupid status notification, and the only way to disable them was to disable journal notifications too. :(

Sup Reitannites, Reitanna Seishin here!

Note: I do not take requests or commissions OF ANY KIND. I used to every now and then, but I don't anymore. Please don't ask.


So, my name is Reitanna Seishin. I'm Pansexual, Manic Depressive, Insomnic, a recovering agoraphobic, a Scorpio, straight edge, and I own two adorable rats. I like to draw, write, paint, sculpt, sing, play video games, enjoy photography, and god knows what else. I am a fan of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, but I am not a brony/pegasister (I call it "non-bronified"). I got into the series through the Creepypasta "Cupcakes," and it took me awhile to like the show itself because I expected it to be like the older generations, which I hated. I also love Pokémon. I used to be a Gen Wunner only until I played Pokémon X and got passed the stubbornness of my childhood.

There's a LOT more to me, but as everyone knows, it is hard to describe yourself, so it's just better to know someone instead of read about them.

MUFFINS IS ON HOLD! Read this for further information:…

PWF is on hold until further notice.
