Yao is older than everyone XDD

It's difficult that there is no Honorifics in English.
In the Chinese version, Toris called Yao "Xiao Yao," which means "little Yao." (similar to yao-kun in Japanese)
Xiao/kun is used to address someone of same age or younger, as well as someone intimate.
Because Ivan calls Yao "Xiao Yao/Yao-kun," he thought that was Yao's name

as for the "big brother" reference....
It's a Sino-Soviet thingy...
Yao considered himself a "born-again Communist" (LOL) after 1949, so he refers to Ivan as an older brother at that time.

But old habits die hard. The big brother thing didn't last very long = =||| (and why do I have to mention sad things when this is a happy page?) stupid translation

...English doesn't have Honorifics, only some...but we have a crazy load of pet names/nicknames, which is commonly used for children or people who are younger or those we are close with.

Like Dave/David would be 'Davey'
Or Rebecca into Becca or Beccy.

Lots of 'y's at the end of names. Or just shortening a long name.
It wouldn't work with Yao, considering (joke has already been made) Yao-y, Yaoy....Yaoi.

i use the japanese honorifics, and i'm completely american. its gives more insite into what kind of relation ship you have with a person, or how well you know them. and for "little yao", we'd probably say "squirt" or something like that.

Lot's of new pages... Or somewhat many at least. <3

And I like Xiao Yao, it sounds so cute. And I totally prefer that ovr Yao-kun. Why would Ivan use japanes honorfics anyway, when none of them's from Japan?

Those two are so cute together, though there's always this feeling they won't be happy for long... :'D
Setomi's avatar
Because the comic is from Japan?
I thought Japanese honorifics were more widely accepted in the fandom...
Reij-i's avatar
Well, yes. I don't really have anything against the use of japanese honorfics... It just feels a little wierd when non-japanese characters use it.
