Originality Is Overrated

itslikethatandlikethis replied to your postSpark Writes Da Novels

I dont have the discipline to write stories. I just have ideas for stories. Then I realize that my idea is loosely based on something I’ve seen or read. Once I realize I’m not original I quit. But I love reading them.

image

my historical fiction professor taught us that there are only about 5 original stories in the world, and everything else is loosely based off of those ideas. So having something being based off of something else isn’t a crime since every protagonist wants the same thing: either they fear something or they want something. 

And then there’s the whole human v. [insert plot device here].

Apparently the best stories have more than one idea about human v. [insert plot device here]

My historical fiction teacher is unbelievably intelligent…(she scares me)

I doubt you’ll ever seriously plagiarise something. But having ideas is always good, especially if you manage to form them into something. Once you get started, it’s not so bad. Haha.

Right? If men menstruated instead of us, pads or tampons would be free and given out like paper towels in the washrooms. Why? Because patriarchy. The people in charge of that decision are mostly white, mostly men.

Yup - and so would birth control! All of this shit is EXPENSIVE. Like, seriously. I invested in reusable pads because I just couldn’t handle the costs of pads and tampons anymore. Ugh.
And that’s not even getting into the cost of ruined underwear

And those fucking “have a happy period” commercials. Hate them.

Well… then I’ll write something this week and we shall exchange short stories! I don’t have professors like you do. My major is a big supporter of “do what everyone else is doing.”

lol whats your major?

The great benefit to studying creative writing is that everybody has a different approach to writing, so it’s nice to get so many fresh ideas (never with your own writing, of course).

Technically I’m an English major, so I spend most of my time writing very english-majory-analytical novels…lol.

When I do write short stories or flash fiction, they’re usually historical fiction, with the exception of a few. I really love History too, but I could never write a novel like that because there’s a lack of opportunity present when you work with earthly limitations. It’s probably why I spend so much time making up new worlds to explore that aren’t this one. Morality and ethics get thrown out the window when you make up your own rules. 

I am excited to exchange stories with you!

look at this gif

What is that?

A medication that sucks ass.
It dramatically decreases estrogen production in my body in order to help treat endometriosis, although it is also used to treat breast & prostate cancer.
It has a shitton of awful side effects though

Political Science with a Business minor. We shall exchange!

I envy you people with your knowledge of establishment

I like to dabble in political intrigue in my novels…

I’ve made a point to understand the inner workings of government over the past few years, half to be more aware of American policy and half to use for my own writing purposes.

They don’t teach us that stuff in English, unfortunately. 

Should we make this into a game of sorts then?

Yeah, Part Of Me Is Still Excited For Season 2

itslikethatandlikethis replied to your postI Love You Too, laakonbobaakon

Also the next season is called “spirits” and I have ALWAYS been interested in the Avatar’s link to the spirit world. I wondered why it was moreso toned down in the first series. The spirit world has unlimited possibilities. Im excited.

Even though part of me doesn’t care much, part of me is still like “GUYS SPIRIT WORLD THO. SPIRIT. WORLD. THO.”

So I hope I get a lot of spiritual stuff and less character conflict because right now the character conflicts are NOT doing it for me. Like I do not care in the slightest.

Okay but the extended concept of blood bending was dope. They had 12 episodes and they did alright for 12 episodes. They painted a wonderful picture of Aang’s legacy, and incorporated the future of the bending world so well.

Oh the bloodbending part was badass, man. I liked that. 

I guess it’s safe to say that the only parts I did like were unrelated to the newer characters/friends of Korra. 

But the plot was solid, man. I was super into all of that. If it involved Amon, it was probably something I thought was really well done. And I know that it was all drafted with twelve episodes in mind, so that was the fact i always had to deal with.

It’s a back and forth kind of thing, that’s all. 

Anastasia Is A Movie That Also Scared Me When I Was Younger

anastasia ALWAYS makes me cry…

the whole thing with Rasputin and the train, like I couldn’t. SCARED. ME. Plus I didn’t understand a lot of the communist things they had in that movie. I didn’t notice until like recently. I think the last time I saw it was literally years ago.

Katara will swoop back into the swing of things and be like “Bitches get your teenage drama shit together.” And it will work.

GOD I HOPE. SO. THAT WOULD BE AMAZING. Like “WE DIDN’T HAVE THIS SHIT BACK IN MY DAY. BACK IN MY DAY WE FOUGHT OVER HOW TO SET UP CAMP AND HOW TO DEFEAT THE FIRELORD, NONE OF THIS RELATIONSHIP NONSENSE. THE SHIPPERS DID THAT FOR US!”

The friendzone is a thing but it isnt a negative thing. Usually, when you get turned down you and that person dont speak. The friendzone is, "hey you liked me enough to frickle frack but im not into it. You still cool. Lets be friends."

See that’s what I view it as, but some people have taken it and turned it into a thing used to attack the person who doesn’t wanna do the freaky frickity frackity - which is what I have a problem with.
Like my flatmate is all “oh she told me she doesn’t like me BUT I SHALL CONVINCE HER TO LIKE ME BY BEING AGGRESSIVE AND TELLING HER CONSTANTLY HOW I FEEL AND SHALL ESCAPE THE FRIENDZONE”
It’s become a sign of immaturity in some people - like if you have feelings for someone but they just wanna be friends great respect that. If you’re all “omfg I have a friend crush let’s be friends friendzone pls” that’s great bc holy shit friends are actually the greatest thing
