Why Teens Shouldn’t Run Revolutions

Hi guys. I’m going to piss off a lot of YA writers (and possibly readers) today, so hang onto your hats.

Mainly, if you’re in love with the idea of a high schooler with no strategic or combat experience heading up a revolution or war because they’re “so dedicated and determined,” don’t read this. Please, don’t. You’re not going to see anything you like. Go ahead and keep enjoying your guilty pleasure – that’s fine. I’m not going to own up to some of the guilty pleasures I love in fiction but don’t buy for a second in real life. That’s chill. Go for it, man.

But there are just things that I – and readers like me – are tired of seeing. If you’re sick of that trope, then keep reading. If you’re open to the idea of ditching that trope in your writing, then I really recommend reading.

This assessment/collection of tips on why teens shouldn’t run revolutions - and if you’re going to make them, how they CAN do it well - will include comparisons to history, other fiction (Unplugged), and Black Butler. Plus swearing and a range of incorrect capitalizations, because it’s fun.

On we go:

RP with @ai-am-cupid

Ryuu went early to the drama club’s theatre today. He glanced through his phone to see if the message he sent fifteen minutes ago to Ai was delivered. It was.

“Come here at once!”

It said.

He had told Kurou about the strong feelings he felt for that female café personel. He ended up being laughed at-how dare he ?!-and was given an answer that the subject was not his forte. Heck, he did not know what feeling was it but was given a suggestion to consult it with Ai. Hmph. It was not like he will be much of a help.

Either way, he wanted to try to understand it before it overwhelms him and be a hindrance to the school play. Little did he knew that his text message sounds like the cupid was in a big trouble.


(okay honestly he’s good at everything like rapping and singing and dancing like jungkook who? golden maknae who? jk ily jungkook please don’t let this start a fan war thx)

Hoo boy. Honestly... I'm kinda pissed that Callie and Marie have been replaced. I think it's too soon. And I'm not a fan of Pearl and Marinas style of music. Lost a bit of hype from that direct. Ah well... At least the new weapons are cool. You probably already got swarmed with this question... But, what do you think of the new popstars?

It makes sense to replace them because Callie and Marie are now fully tied to the single player mode. (a mode you never really need to play). Callie is working with Octarians and Marie is recruiting heroes. So of course they can’t be announcing stages. It makes sense to have new characters to do it.

As for the characters themselves, I like them. Both have fun and cute designs and it is very interesting to see an octoling walking among inklings. I have no objections to this.

Just, let’s not start waifu war II

        You sat on a log that was next to a dead fire and sighed. You were consumed by your thoughts but quickly snapped out of it when an alarm chimed. 

        “All Arkadia security personnel, report to the main gate,” said a voice. You were in the security personnel, but you got up and made your way towards the gate as our curiosity got the better of you.

        You met up with Octavia at the gate to find Nyko and other miscellaneous Grounders just past the gate, surrounded by guards. You recognized one.

 ‘The work has increased and the road is taking on a new life. Batteries of guns are moving up, and long convoys of ammunition trucks pass continuously. So no one in the Section was willing to take advantage of the Fourth-of-July leave, but in appreciation the General gave us an Independence Day Fête, with a band, champagne, etc., and we had as guests men from the neighboring ambulance sections. We put two big tents end to end, with flaps up and the American and French flags flying from the pole. The fellows worked like beavers rooting up red poppies, blue cornflowers, and white lilies, which we tied to the tent-poles, also adorned with bunches of cherries. Besides about fifty Americans, various chaplains and military doctors were also present, while the General Staff sent one of its captains. So it was a very good party, with the “Marseillaise,” “Star-Spangled Banner,” and decent weather thrown in. The Boches, I should add, supplied the fireworks, but did not get anything out of it in return.’

Do you wanna forge the x-blade?
Were not whole just
two parts
Lets go start the keyblade war
Open the door
to reveal kingdom hearts
We used to be one person.
And now we’re not
I wish to be one with you
Do you wanna forge the x-blade?
I know you want to forge the x-blade.

Leave me alone, Vani.

Ill be back.

Do you wanna forge the x-blade?
Would you rather be forced
I think that some fighting is overdue
I’ve started taking it out on the dumb unversed
It gets a little lonely
All these abandoned keys
Just watching the hours tick by
(Tic-Tock, Tic-Tock, Tic-Tock, Tic-Tock)

Please, I know you hate me
All your friends are so useless
They say that they have friendship, its just a weakness
Every one of them’s a nuisance
We only have each other
It’s just you and me
Your all going to lose
Do you wanna forge the x-blade?

made this a long while ago but never uploaded it so here it is
