Destination-One

Anonymous asked:

i take inspiration from a lot of different shows/books as well as other places when writing. however, my latest story sort of feels like a frankenstein of all of my favourite media. i don’t really believe that any story is ‘truly original’, but at the same time i’m wondering if there’s some sort of threshold for originality? it’s like my novel is copying a whole bunch of different sources as opposed to it being its own separate entity. what are your thoughts on this??


It really depends on how you define “copying.” If you have a story about a vampire wizard named Henry Callen, who is the golden-eyed, crescent-moon-scarred “chosen one” destined to save his district by winning a “fight to the death” against twelve other teens, all while his girlfriend Hayzee battles leukemia, and his best friend Gander searches for a long lost magical Irish king in the mountains of Georgia–then yeah, that’s cutting it rather close to some sort of weird franken-plagiarism beast.

On the other hand, if you simply have a story about a magical vampire named Siandra Lancaster, who has to save her fantasy medieval village from the wrath of an evil lord by battling five other magical teenagers to the death, all while nursing her ailing mother and supporting her brother’s quest for a magical tome that might help her win her battle–then no, that’s not copying. That’s just being inspired. :)

bronte life seems so pointless if you can't make an impact and i feel like im destined to be one of those invisible people who never affects the world in any meaningful way and im just kinda here. taking up space.

the idea that you have to earn the right to be alive is bullshit. nobody would expect their cat or dog to change the world to be worthy of love and space and existence, so don’t expect it of yourself. besides, there are plenty of things you can do to make yourself feel like you’re doing something. volunteering at a charity shop or an animal shelter or a food bank might not seem like you’re making a huge difference, but it will mean the world to somebody.

What is your thought on Bleach's ending?!?!?

Well I can say that it’s an appropriate result of  the sudden shut down from Shonen Jump. Even if it ended in a different way, it would have still been inevitably bad. It’s rushed, it has plot holes, things have been left out  and it’s also not very original, it’s the classic Shonen ending where main protagonists have kids and story repeats itself ( and I am definitely not a fan of these endings, AT ALL).  But at the end of the day, I kind of feel bad for Kubo, it mustn’t have been nice to be hurried to finish his work in 5 weeks. There is no way he could have done better than this to be honest…maybe an open ending? I don’t know…

The ships are meh, kinda wished for Ichiruki to happen…I am ok with Ichihime (sort of), but I still don’t get why he had to put Renji and Rukia together….it was necessary to the ending I guess….

The only thing that pisses me off more than anything is Ichigo’s hair. Why that haircut, WHYYYYYYY???????

Nino talks to Pissed Off Taco Bell Alya™ to piss off actual Alya.

In case you can’t read my garbage handwriting.

“Oh, what’s that, Taco Bell Alya? You think my beats are sick? You’re so sweet!”

“NINO! I TOLD YOU TO GET RID OF THAT!”

For those of you who don’t know the context. Long story short: Nino married an unflattering picture of Alya at Taco Bell. Why? Because Vegas that’s why.
