Reasons They Do That

A list of reasons why a character may do something:

  • They’re selfless - They just can’t leave the kid that’s stuck despite the probability of them dying in the process of saving that kid.
  • They’re selfish - They just can’t do something because they’re too focused on what may happen to themselves
  • Their past - A dog once bit them when they were a young child and now they’re wary of dogs (doesn’t matter if they provoked the dog, bc people remember things like that)
  • They know way too much - As in, they might know the statistical probability of car crashes and therefor do not drive or get into cars (though of course, this isn’t the only example of this)
  • They’re naive/gullible - The character doesn’t see that clearly this person is against them because they just don’t pay attention enough/don’t see the warning signs.
  • Conspiracies - They just went way too deep into youtube and found way too many conspiracy videos and now everything is just a conspiracy. (Perfect example: Hodgins from Bones)

All of these could work for or against your character. Whether it be the secondary character that is too selfless and has to go back and save the main character, or the “villain” is just way to naive to see that your hero is taking apart their plan. Or maybe the MC got way into conspiracies and it led them to real conspiracies in the bad government they live in.

These are only some of the possibilities that I could think of, people are free to add to this list :)

“Listen to me, I sound like a Blake Shelton song!”
“Yours is better!”

An FYI

Especially regarding pallanophs, because I sense I have (somehow) confused some people, especially newcomers. So before I forget, I thought I’d elaborate/clarify some things.

Pallanophs are not: Anthropomorphic. Were-creatures. Anything that falls under “furry.” These terms would imply that pallanophs are half-human or human-like renditions of existing animals, which they are not. They’re independent of earth mammals, though bear superficial resemblances to them. Felines, primates (baboons), bears, hyenas, and equines were my primary sources of inspiration when I designed them. They live on an alternate universe Earth, after all, so it’s not that big of a stretch.

Also for the record, I’m not someone who identifies as a furry, and I’ll be honest, tagging pallanophs/etc. as such is inaccurate and as a result, a bit bothersome to me. I know this is probably not a popular statement, so if you wish to unfollow me, feel free to do so.

Thanks for your time and understanding.

Adam helping and being a big part of the secret.
Rob standing up for himself.
Chas supporting Rob.
Paddy’s opinions being pretty valid.
Faith being bloody amazing and well up for a wedding.
Rob looking devastatingly handsome and choked up as he opens the boot.

I’m not going to cope with this. Too amazing.

Hartwin Fic: Brave

“It’s fine, Mum,” Eggsy says for the third time in as many minutes. He glances at Harry, who’s on the couch watching this conversation, then looks over at Daisy, sitting halfway up the stairs and frowning intently at a string coming loose on her jumper. “She’s having a great time. You just go on, have yourself some fun with your friends." 

"Are you sure?” his mum says, and even over the phone he can just see the worry on her face. “It’s the first time—" 

"—the first time you left her with me,” Eggsy says. “I know. And I’m tellin’ you, it’s fine. We’re having a blast.” He grins at Daisy and she grins back, then stands up, holding onto the string like it’s a triumphant discovery. 

“All right,” Michelle says. “But call me if you need me." 

"It’s fine,” Eggsy says, for what he hopes is the last time. He ends the call and puts his phone away. 

Which is precisely the moment when Daisy decides to trip down the rest of the stairs and do a spectacular faceplant onto the carpet.

Asher running towards me like this is probably the best feeling in the world.

Oh, goodness, and today is our anniversary! 💖

If I have learned anything from enduring trauma, it’s that I must not pretend it never occurred. I must not pretend that I am okay when I’m clearly experiencing a flashback. PTSD makes my own skin feel like a prison; a prison crawling with bugs and all I want to do is claw and rip my way out of it. But this is it. This is all I have. This is the body I’m going to get stuck with. As much as I want to destroy it because the trauma is destroying me in every other way, I have to stay and I have to stick with it. I’ve always thought it was a bad thing to feel that way. But it isn’t, and I can’t keep pushing that aside. I hate everything about trauma. I hate everything about PTSD. I hate everything about what has happened to me. And I’m finally learning that there’s nothing wrong with admitting that as long as I choose to push through it and come out on the other side - wherever that may be.
