honestly i love the idea of playing p5 assuming ryuji is your best friend and makoto is your girlfriend bc like. you end up as this ridiculously intelligent and charming high schooler who’s dating the proper and insightful student council prez and their whole relationship just exudes brilliance, intelligence, potential…..
but then ryuji opens his mouth “HEY LETS DO THIS DUMB THING” and no matter how stupid it is nor who else is around to judge, akira -sincere and earnest- responds like “i have never heard a better plan in my whole life, lets do it right now”
meanwhile makoto is just sort of exasperated about how willing akira is to follow ryuji into hell and back, but secedes to the plan of keeping just ryuji in check since she can actually talk ryuji out of a dumb idea and akira won’t quit once his mind is made up
anyone who doesnt like arya’s braavos storyline is boring tbh. i, for one, love that arya sails away from westeros which is a pile of garbage and gets free passage across the sea to essos for a change of pace. she meets some chill sailors for starters who are mostly terrified that shes an assassin but they give her free shots. then they sail up to the titan and its magnificent and mythic. braavos is this stunning would be italian city. the vibe is the best of any location in asoiaf. its foggy and mysterious and dangerous. theres markets and ports and temples and statues and canals. its fucking venice!!! except better. arya goes to the house of black and white and gets a job after trying to eat a worm out of skulls eyesocket. she never stops. she’s accepted into murder/spy school which is creepy and great. theres religious and magical elements and arya learns so much. languages, poisons, history, acting, lying ect. she gets multiple other jobs where she can hang in bars and brothels and meet people from all over the world: pirates, pickpockets, mummers, courtesans, fortune tellers. they teach her languages and curses and secrets and songs. she tries new foods and sees new things. arya is blinded but instead of taking that lying down she gets cat vision. she flips off guys who try shit with her. she fights in alleys and spies on people. she cuts a bitch or two.
but most importantly: arya befriends a seal and shakes his flipper like that alone…..literally nothing else in asoiaf can compare

Nothing makes me less sympathetic toward a character than a “they have been wronged and therefore can never do wrong” attitude when writing them. Like, why is the notion that everyone should be responsible for their own choices such a radical idea to so many (particularly where female characters are concerned)?
And I’m not talking about writers acknowledging pain or trauma, but rather excusing bad choices entirely. Like to the point of having even characters who would have a right to resent their choices rushing to reassure them that “they can do no wrong because they have been wronged,” nevermind if those same characters suffered their own trauma as a direct result of the aforementioned bad choices.
Essentially they’re just an eternal victim who doesn’t seem to have learned anything from their life experiences or to have grown as a person, and I don’t find that admirable or sympathetic.
Language is how the folks in your world communicate with each other and is an incredibly important factor in any culture. This includes both the spoken languages as well as the more subtle ways that people communicate through body language, and can extend further out to types of communication used between the hard of hearing in your world.
Another factor that language covers is written language, which in itself has a lot of considerations such as what is primarily used to write down the characters in this language (A pen nib is going to allow much different strokes than a tablet of soft clay and stylus).
Even if you don’t plan on creating a whole new language for your world, just digging down to the quirks of language between dialects and mannerisms can help build a much more vibrant world!
i found out recently my mom thinks that cosplay was sort of a sex thing and im fucking crying i fucking went to a convention when i was like 16 with my then best friend and her then boyfriend dressed as feferi and eridan aksnjfdjksn MY MOTHER THOUGHT IT WAS A SEX THING AND JUST WAS LIKE OK WELL DIFFERENT STROKES KIDS HAVE FUN
I was looking at the page for the Different Strokes series and realized how hard it is to tell how the one-shots and drabbles fall chronologically, so to make things easier, I thought I’d lay it out for anyone who actually desires to read things in order.
Technically, Checkpoints would come first seeing as it’s a prequel of sorts, but it’s also in progress, so you may want to save it for last.
Summary: Bucky recently broke up with his girlfriend and now its your job to pick up the pieces
Words Count: 687, just a lil drabble
Genre: slightly angsty, nothing too bad

You woke up to the sound of cupboards slamming down the hall. As you flip over onto your side, you look at your alarm clock and groan. It’s 2:30 in the morning. Who in the right god damn mind is slamming cupboards in the middle of the night??
You sit up and stretch out your back, ready to give whoever it was a piece of your mind. You stand up and mentally prepare what you’re going to say as you walk down the hall to the tower’s kitchen, but what you find there shocks you.
“Bucky?” you ask alarmed, “what the hell are you doing on the floor covered in corn flakes? I thought you were staying with Clair tonight?”
He looks up at you with eyes full of tears,”(y/n)..”
maybe i'm missing something but why is sixpence getting shit on here? at least in the linked post, it sounds like she flew to bangladesh, showed up at her grandparents' house, they had a child slave, and somehow people decided that was sixpence's fault? it seems like people are just hopping on the hate train because she didn't delete her blog after sixpence heals?
ok imagine you go home for thanksgiving this year and your family had a child slave. Would you just be like “welp, different strokes!” And ask her to get you the sprite
