accents 2

I know everyone is hyped about Phase 4 but I just found out about gorillaz and I am listening to all of their old albums, so a lot of this going to be nostalgia for some people.

They’ve been arguing about the DARE video for two days, Murdoc won’t budge, neither will Noodle. Russel just wants to eat but is getting tired of Murdoc’s dickery. And 2-D found out the girl at the front knows them and supersized his fries.

i’m… screaming i did a google search to see what the fuck everyone was talking about and that dress was created by an academy award-winning costume designer over the course of 12,000 man hours and accented by 2,160 swarovski crystals like… okay…

appreciation post for astrid

astrid - let’s just talk about her for a minute, shall we?

1) okay firstly, she’s drop dead gorgeous. not the most important thing about her obviously, but those sparkly eyes and her jawline and oh my gooood. also her accent!! okay moving on.

2) her considerate nature - she didn’t know that niska had been hurt when she first met her, but she was so gentle with her, always asking if she was okay and never taking advantage and touching her so carefully like she was something precious.

3) her commitment - she freaking moved to a foreign country for a girl she had spent like a month with, just because that girl was in trouble. how goals is that???

4) her thoughtfulness - when niska was asking her all those questions in the cafe, she didn’t take it lightly. she knew her answers were important to niska and she really thought about them.

5) her sense of humour - she’s so self-assured, and the way she teased niska so gently actually warms my heart.

HAS HUMANS CREATED THE PERFECT CHARACTER?!

I’m writing a fanfiction, any tips on how to identify and write the voice of the canon characters? I feel like it’s hard to figure out each voice but I don’t want the characters to feel too ooc…


It’s really all about pin-pointing the mechanics of the character’s personality, which includes things beyond just their physical voice. Here are some things to pay attention to:

1) Dialogue

How does this character speak? Are they chatty or reserved? Are they assertive or meek? Do they tend to use long or short sentences more often? Do they use a lot of big words? Do they tend to interrupt people a lot? Do they use a lot of slang? Are there words or phrases they say a lot? Do they use obscenities? How often? Do they have any verbal or speech quirks, like word misuse, mispronunciation, a funny way manner of speaking, a lisp, an accent?

2) Tone and Mood

Are they witty or sarcastic? Do they joke around a lot? Do they have an overall positive or negative outlook? Are they quick to anger, or are they more reserved? How is their attitude toward a person or subject reflected in their behavior? Are they outgoing or introverted? Are they upbeat or mellow?

3) Body Language

Never underestimate how much body language can come into play when keeping true to a character’s voice. What is their body language when they speak? Do they tend to get very animated when they speak angrily? Or do they sit or stand relatively still except for a little fidgeting? Do they display a lot of closed body language, like crossed arms or leaning away from people? Or a lot of open body language, like leaning near people, touching them, hugging them, etc.? What is their body language like when they’re thinking?

4) Actual Voice

Do they say things huskily? Breathily? Is their voice soft and velvety? Do they speak in a dulcet tone? Do they speak with a singsong lilt? Is their voice high-pitched or deep? Friendly or foreboding? These are all things to keep in mind. :)

ETA:

Anonymous said: For the person who asked about getting a characters voice write in a fanfic: I’ve found if you are basing it on a book or other written material, look at the things that the author compares the characters too a lot or particular words that they often use in conjunction with that character. (i.e. Malfoy & pale/thin or Snape & bats). Don’t overuse it, but throwing that in there once or twice and mimicking the authors writing style really add a lot to the story.

Kit Harington Should Voice Jack Savage for Zootopia 2!

Just a quick post ^^.

I think of the perfect actor to voice the character Jack Savage in the sequel to Zootopia! (We don’t know if there’s gonna be a sequel and we don’t know if Jack is gonna be in it. This is just for fun.)

The actor that should voice Jack Savage is … 

KIT FREAKING HARINGTON!!!

Also known as JON FREAKING SNOW!!!

HE IS A GREAT ACTOR!

REASONS WHY HE IS PERFECT FOR THE ROLE:

1. HE CAN PULL OFF THE PERFECT ACCENT FOR JACK.

2. HE IS A PHENOMENAL ACTOR.

3. HAS A VERY POPULAR FAN BASE WITH GAME OF THRONES. 


So yeah, that’s it.

That’s my take.
