So I read this book called [name_u]Bird[/name_u] Talk where it translated bird noises into [name_f]English[/name_f] words, and for some reason this one page was really funny to me, so I decided to turn it into a story about a family having a communal existential crisis xD Also, I don’t remember which birds these are, but if anyone can tell based on the translations let me know! I gave the family Shakespearean names since a friend mentioned that the whole situation felt very Shakespearean to her for some reason, and their last name is Byrde, because I felt like I kinda had to lol
DH: [name_m]Orlando[/name_m] [name_m]Florizel[/name_m] Byrde (We see it, we hear it, we feel it, what of it?)
DW: [name_f]Diana[/name_f] [name_u]Valentine[/name_u] Byrde (Dear, dear, too true!)
DD1: [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f] [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f] Byrde (I’ve actually forgotten-- I’ll check the book in a couple of days xD)
DD2: [name_f]Thisbe[/name_f] [name_m]Cymbeline[/name_m] Byrde (YANK YANK)
They also have a neighbor named [name_u]Robin[/name_u] Cuttlefish whose words I forgot but is just trying to calm everyone down, as well as Orlando’s brother, who is referred to by everyone as Uncle [name_m]Fred[/name_m] (he’s never had much luck correcting people with an annoyed “It’s [name_m]Frederick[/name_m]”. Uncle [name_m]Fred[/name_m] was inspired by the common nighthawk, whose words are “Pork, beans”).
