hi! i just played your little visual novel and i was SO COOL!!! I feel like i know tamashi a little better now, as well as the universe he lives in. also i saw that two of your other OC's where there too, and i was wondering, are they also gonna be a part of the comic? also where is the background music from? THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO MAKE THIS VISUAL NOVEL AND SHARE IT WITH US IT REALLY IS AWESOME!


OH MY GOSH THANK /YOU/ FOR PLAYING!!!!!!! (ノ≧∀≦)ノ The universe of the little visual novel, even though it has the same title, has nothing to do with D.Gray-man! (Oh well, Tim is still there! I couldn’t come up with something to substitute him!!! I really like that Tim is Tamashi’s best friend ;u; But I’ll think of something eventually!!) The thing is that The price of a soul isn’t a single story. My idea was to finish the comic first! And then go about the next project which also involves Tama! I was exploring the idea of introducing game-ish parts in a comic, along with interactivity and choices to explore. For that I thought of little Tamashi as a traditional rpg hero: a sword, a brave heart and a purpose. 

Initially, I thought of this as also a DGM story in a different world and context: he’s traveling because he’s heard of an academy that trains heroes, and he!! wants to be one!! To be a hero you need to bond your soul to a weapon and he’s got his father sword! That’s the only thing he knows about him, the only thing he has left. Except that, along the way, he bonds his soul to a different sword which becomes his protector:

I found myself thinking what if the only thing Tamashi knows is his father was a great hero during the big wars, but he never got to know him? He only inherits his too-huge-to-brandish katana and Timcanpy, who's’ been looking after him since he can recall. What if little, very little Tama decides he wants!! to be a hero!! like his father!!! so he can be worthy of brandishing his sword!! And then I thought what if! the weapons of each hero are, indeed, souls that can adopt human form. What if the white sword he bonds with by mistake is actually, Allen, who adopts the shape of a small wooden sword so Tamashi can handle him, a welcoming, kind soul who immediately grows fond of our boy AND THEY LIVE ENDLESS ADVENTURES (ノ≧∀≦)ノ

The problem is the copyright issues though… it might be counterproductive to set these long-term projects in my future when I don’t really own part of the characters. So since the visual novel is going to be an official project- and even though it has Tim in it- I had to stick to original universe/characters. I developed the VN with the idea of this RPG Tamashi in mind! So I’m not really sure The price of a soul is going to continue on the DGM world/with DGM characters or once I’m done with the comic Tamashi will jump onto his own story! (it makes me sad, though, because I really really really like him with Allen, Kanda and Lavi)

ALSO THE OST IS FROM JOURNEY!! It’s the game that made me want to take everything I was doing one step further!!

As far as all the rumblings about what is to come with Once…

One thing I’m thankful for is this. However this show does or does not end, this fandom will write through fic and illustrate through art infinite different versions that will inevitably be more nuanced, thoughtful and appropriate than anything we will ever see on our TVs. And while this sounds like a slam of A&E and the writing staff (which isn’t necessarily false) it’s just a fact. We care about the small moments as much as the big milestones and have the time and desire in our art to delve into them. We remember every tiny interaction and take time to tie up loose threads, maintain continuity and make sure there is a payoff for every crisis. There are simply too many characters and storylines and realms and curses and villains and heroes and lions and tigers and bears for A&E to focus on what we want all of the time. Thank god we have this space to do it for ourselves. I can’t wait to see what this fandom creates.

….

That being said, fuck up Emma Swan’s happy ending and I’m gonna riot.

Mornings

Logan groaned and halfheartedly muttered something about ‘kids’, almost falling asleep at his desk. He’d been up all night marking papers, and hadn’t gotten a wink of sleep. Well, except for when he nodded off and his head slammed into the desk at 3am.

Now it was 8 in the morning, and he felt exhausted. 'Maybe a glass of orange juice will help,’ Logic decided, not really putting much thought into it. He finally stood up, stretching his sore legs and arms out. He left his room, hair a mess from having it tugged and pulled all night.

He entered the kitchen and grabbed a glass and the oj, beginning to pour.

“Morning, Lo,” Patton greeted as he swung into the kitchen. Logan looked up and couldn’t help but stare. Morality’s bed hair was present, which rarely happened, and it looked amazing. His heart rate increased and he felt his throat become dry. The golden rays of the morning sun coming through the window hit Patton’s skin and made it glow, making the personality glow.

“Um, are you alright?” Patton asked the other. Logan blushed and looked back at his glass, which was overflowing.

He got distracted by pure beauty, and now his orange juice was everywhere

“Oh, shit,” Logan cursed, quickly stopping the flow of the juice. He panicked and ran around the kitchen for something to clean it up. He mind was foggy and he couldn’t focus properly, just because he was in Patton’s presence.

“Here, Lo, the dish cloth.” Patton walked over to the sink and grabbed it for the other, beginning to wipe the juice up.

“T- thanks,” Logan stuttered. He fell against the bench, exhausted, but still staring at the other in awe.

“Take a picture, it’ll last longer,” Morality said with a wink. Logic just smiled and shook his head fondly, crossing the kitchen and scooping his boyfriend into his arms. He peppered kisses all over the other’s face, causing lots of blushing and giggling from the elevated personality.

“I can’t help it, Pat, you’re extremely cute this morning.” Logan continued to kiss all over the other, making sure to cover every inch of his face and neck, before carrying him away to a place where they could rest in the morning sun.

seoulmatess  asked:

hey, my name is ana, im from colombia, (i'm actually not sure why i'm writing this in english) anyway, i've been wanting to learn korean for a while now, i learned hangul but the thing is that i don't know where to continue or what resources i can use, since it's really hard to find something korean related here; so i just wanted to ask you how you started learning and how do you manage your study time. I hope i didn't bother you ^^

Hola Ana!! :D Learning hangul is the first step, asi que comenzaste bien! c:

What I did: learn hangul, build some vocab with memrise, and then not improve at all for months because I had so many resources that I didn’t know which one to pick. I did check a few lessons of TTMIK and I used the textbook My Korean 1 (made by an Australian University, I think), but to be honest I didnt improve as much as I could have. Now I know the two reasons why: 1. TOO MANY RESOURCES: I was accumulating resources, books, sites, EVERYTHING, but didnt actually pick one to use. 2. Lack of discipline: I didn’t make time to actually study.

Know that I’m more experienced I highly recommend yall to not repeat my mistakes lmao. PICK ONE TEXTBOOK OR WEBSITE AND STICK TO IT. Don’t worry about missing out extra information or whatever. Only look for another explanation if the first one you used wasnt clear enough and you really couldnt understand, but AFTER TRYING; annotate, practice, review, and if it is still unclear then switch to another (reliable) resource. I’m NOT saying that every explanation is going to be accurate and should be trusted, but if it isn’t correct you will probably realize it after you become more comfortable with the language.

Everyone praises TTMIK and they deserve it, they have awesome lessons. My advice is that you find their curriculum (on their page) and start. But remember: DONT STOP. You dont know what to do? Go to the next lesson. As simple as that. Listen to the audios, repeat what they say, read aloud, make flashcards with the vocab and say “I will learn ALL THIS WORDS by the end of the week”, make your own sentences to practice vocab and grammar points, KEEP GOING. You can even skip some lessons (advanced learners are gonna kill me for saying this tho). Dont stress over “but what im a gonna do after i finish all their lessons?!?” You’ll cross that bridge when you get there.

Another option that I recommend for grammar is using the book Korean Grammar In Use (Beginner). It has a lot of grammar points with simple explanations, sample sentences, conjugations and exercises. You can pair it with the TTMIK lessons if you are a little worried about not getting enough practice.

For vocab I suggest the list of ‘Most common verbs/adjectives/nouns’, and I think some people have already created them on Memrise/Quizlet/Anki (I personally prefer quizlet).


I try to study at least 5 minutes a day. I’ll make a full post soon about how I’ve been managing my time these past few months, but this is what I try to do every week:

  • Grammar: it can take just 30 minutes to make notes for a grammar point. How many G.P. you do is up to how much time you have. I’m doing 3-5 per week (intensively selfstudying) but I think even one per week is fine!
  • Vocab: make a list at the start of each week (or month) and review every moment you can: before sleeping, while eating, on the bus. It shouldnt take you too much time either: 30 minutes for the list and 5 minute breaks for reviewing. Make goals: Ill memorize this list by the end of the week, Ill review 5 days of the week, Ill review 4 times each day. Be honest with yourself, but try to step out of your comfort zone.
  • Listening comprehension: listen to audios of the lessons, listen without reading the transcript and try to pick up words, listen to kpop too and other media like dramas or youtube videos. Doesnt take much time either and its fun to do.
  • Some kind of pronunciation practice: imitating the audios and reading aloud. If you have a native friend or anyone who knows/is learning korean, talk with them
  • Some kind of writing practice like journaling your day, solving workbook exercises or making sentences with what you learn. Time varies with this. My journal entries take me 5-15 minutes (they are very short but sometimes I have to look up words that I dont know/remember)
  • Reading practice: write the dialogues from the lessons that you study and read them! they probably combine the grammar and vocab you are studying. Also write the sample sentences that they use. Read kpop lyrics and webtoons.

Hope this helps a little bit c: I’ll probably make more posts about this with more information. Lo mas importante es comenzar y seguir! No te bloquees. Si ves algo, aprendelo; no lo guardes para despues.

I understand she’s not a member anymore but she is an ORIGINAL member. I’ve stated this before. I will continue to post quotes with her included. I’m not “in denial” about her leaving.

And I am not “pretending” that Camren is real. I happen to ship them, yes, but if you didn’t realize, I also add other ships than Camren. And if you don’t like the content I post, feel free to unfollow. I don’t want someone that doesn’t following me anyways.

A Look at Love - Jinyoung

He was clad in his leather jacket with a white button-up dress shirt under that he paired with black jeans and Vans. He wasn’t one to club, but the guys told him it’d be good for him to have some fun instead of coop himself in his room.

“Hyung, it’ll be fun.” Yugyeom, the youngest who was finally going to experience the club life, reassured. “Don’t think too much.”

Mark came by and nudged the weary one. “Come on, I’ll buy you a drink when we get there.”

Jinyoung tried to turn up his mood, but it wasn’t working. All he kept thinking about was how things went down between the two of you. He couldn’t even pinpoint what the problem was that led to the break. He wasn’t a believer in breaks and neither were you, but it was better to leave it like that than an official breakup for the time being.

MBTI Types' Response to Hand Holding
  • INFJ: I feel so close to you right now both physically and emotionally. Squeeze my hand, look deep into my eyes, and kiss me softly. I want to know your soul.
  • ESTJ: Are you trying to rescue me? I don't need rescued, I got this. STOP TOUCHING ME!!!
  • INTJ: Your hands are cold. *squeezes them tightly for a few seconds* OK, that's a more optimal temperature. *lets go*
  • ENTP: Holding hands in a relationship is symbolic of a political union in which it can be argued that both parties... *continues to rant ad nauseam*
  • ISTJ: I'm not sure why we need to be making physical contact... please stop.
  • INFP: Let me cry, let me love you, let me hold your hand until death do us part. Or until my cat needs me... I might also snag that bottle of tequila while I'm feeling these emotions...

anonymous asked:

So I was working on a fic, stopped about a year ago because of an issue I was having; I'm basically going through the events of the game and I don't know how to make it more interesting. I'm worried about pacing, making things go too fast or too slow, not having enough going on between fights/plot points to warrant enough time between them. I don't want to go too fast or too slow. Do you have any advice? (I'm not sure if I'm explaining myself well)

You’re explaining yourself just fine, love!  I understand this feeling >.<  I’m always hyperaware of pacing, and it can really harm my first-draft productivity!  But it’s always for the same reason for me, and knowing that reason helps me to solve the problem.

Why Your Story Feels Too Fast

There are a few different reasons a story may come off as too fast – like your characters are teleporting from scene to scene, from emotion to emotion, with no real continuity or meat in between the Big Moments.  Some common problems include:

  1. There isn’t enough plot.  When you start a draft with too vague an idea of what you’re writing, it can create a checklist effect: you look at your outline and use it as a map, but don’t have any idea what happens in between.  That’s like going on a road trip with your car windows blacked out!  You only know what’s happening when you get out of the car – not how you got there or where you’re going next.  It’s disorienting for the reader, and pretty boring.
    Solution: Look to your characters.  They’re going to be the source of all plots, because they’re the ones calling the shots and changing the story.  Develop their personalities – their pasts and their goals and their conflicts and their own individual plots.  Then work out how all these characters fit together; ask yourself why these particular characters were hand-chosen to tell this story.  Once you transform your characters into people with lives, they aren’t as easily stowed in the toybox between plot points.
  2. There’s too much plot.  I know, I’m contradicting myself, but these are both possible reasons for this racing-through-the-plot feeling.  Your story should be like a vacation – well-planned, so you don’t just sit on the couch all day, but still maintaining breathing room.  If you stuff the story with too many subplots, conflicts, backstories, romances, and character arcs, there’s no room for anything natural to take place or change the plot.
    Solution: Take stock of your plots/subplots and decide which ones you really want.  Which plots fit your story’s theme, message, and pacing?  Which plots are unique, enjoyable, and inspire empathy in readers?  Which plots are you writing because you want them, not because you feel obligated to add them in (*cough* needless love triangles *cough*)?  Which plots feel natural and realistic for your characters?  Whichever of your plots don’t fit these categories… detach from them.  Throw them into the ocean.  Change your name, dye your hair, and run to Mexico before they can catch you.  Whatever it takes.
  3. Your scenes are too short or long.  Again, two ends of the spectrum: if your scenes are too short, you may be lacking some dialogue, character-building moments, or lasting/realistic conflict.  If your scenes are too long, you may be exhausting certain plot points, winding up with such long chapters that you can’t fit the non-climactic scenes.  Both tendencies can stem from weak chapter arcs (hook, meat, resolution, and hook for the next chapter) or a lack of development/confidence in your storytelling voice.
    Solution: Take some extra time to plan your chapters out – try to develop a more-or-less uniform chapter structure.  If you find that no matter how structured your chapters are, they still come out too long or short, you may want to assess your author voice for lacking or having an excess of dialogue/description.
  4. Your fictional timeline isn’t working.  I’ve been guilty of this time and time again – planning a story spanning three months, then wanting to add in characters getting married or graduating college or taking down a dictatorship, until three months just isn’t feasible anymore.
    Solution: Decide which plot is the most important to you, and base the timeline around that. It may mean having to let some good subplots go, but in the end, a cohesive story is the more important victory.  Otherwise, your readers will get lost, and every plot will suffer.
  5. You’re unconfident in either your main plot or your filler.  If you feel uncomfortable with the plot itself, you may throw all your chapters into advancing it, because you want to prove and improve it.  If you feel uncomfortable with writing filler scenes, you may drive the plot forward in order to avoid filler.  Neither of these is a matter of personal style.  As writers, we are both the playwrights and the actors – we have to create a solid plot, and then go up on stage and add the flair and make the jokes and draw people in.  We don’t get the option of being one or the other.  We have to be both the cast and the crew, the architect and the realtor, the main course and the side dishes and the whole Thanksgiving feast.
    Solution: Get comfortable with it, as soon as possible; and that means you need to write.  Go ahead and write the plot, and write the filler, and even if you think it all sucks, keep it in there.  Write all the way through the first draft until the story is out and you’ve gotten some practice.  Then go back, use that knowledge, and rewrite/edit those awkward scenes where you didn’t know what you were doing.  Practice will make it better, I promise.

Of course, your problem may be something entirely different, so you can message me again with more information if you need!  I’ll gladly take your question :)

But I hope this did help you and anyone else struggling with this!  Thanks again, and happy writing <3

Indefinite Hiatus;

I’m sure some people have noticed that I haven’t been around lately again, and I wanted to further explain myself before going on an indefinite hiatus. Please bear with me, as I don’t know if this will come off as me venting or ranting, but I feel this is all stuff I need to say and want to get across to everyone.

Keep reading

Ok cool so that means you are in your right to make the employees' lives harder with your particular requests and pickiness "because you're paying for it".

It's cool.

300+ followers; why I'm leaving

First, I just want to thank everyone for reading and reblogging my work. I’ve talked to many of you and you are some of the most beautiful people I know.

I’m not sure If you’ve been following my poetry over the last week or so maybe longer, but I am in a state of distress right now.

I will continue to write and post up until Tuesday, but on that day I’m going in for a formal evaluation to determine outpatient options, but I just received a phone call today from my doctor after talking to him yesterday.

He wants me to explore inpatient options as well. He actually wants me to pay more attention to inpatient services. I’ve never been admitted before and I will be 31 in July. Before you ask it did suck watching kids get cake at school during the school year and no one giving a shit about us summer babies or our cake.

I would be lying to you if I said I wasn’t scared. I would be lying to you if I said I didn’t think about hurting myself, permanently, at least three times a day on a good day.

You don’t want to know about my bad days.

I have my queue set to trickle out my recent writing as well as my future pieces. I average 3 a day, so that’s a least 15 more poems.

@scrawls-of-daisy-arkanian @jlimrosenberg
will also be throwing me into the @broken-souls-uploads queue. For those of you who don’t know, we feature poets speaking about all those unspoken things inside of us all in the most intimate and beautiful ways. We’re not sure about future prompts yet, but ours are always open and we will reblog you if it’s your first piece or one hundreth poem. If you have something to say or get off your chest, you shouldn’t be restricted to a time frame.

I actually started BSU because of a convo I had with Scrawls after reading one of his pieces. I was recently re-diagnosed as Bipolar II after discussing the last 11 years of my life and all my mistakes I’ve made. All the people I’ve erased.

Again, I’m so fucking afraid right now. I don’t know what to expect. I hope I find the solid ground I need that will help me finish this lease with my “roommate.” I hope I can come back with more poems for you.

As long as they let me bring some of my old poetry books, a journal, and a pen or pencil I will be fine. I think. No music. No phones for God knows how long.

It could be three days best case scenario. I don’t believe it will be that short. A few weeks or so seems more likely. A few months freaks me out, but I don’t know if that is likely.

I love you, if you think no-one does.
You are beautiful, if someone has made you feel ugly.
You are strong, because you are trying.
You are worth it because you are loved, beautiful, and strong.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

That’s the phrase that started BSU. I don’t want to leave, but I need you to understand this is best for me and I can’t be strong for you if I can’t be for myself.

I want to be happy.
I want to accept love.
I want to be beautiful again.
I want to be stronger than I am now.

I love you.

I love your AU sooo much ommGG!!! <333 Like serious wtf makes you so creative and talented?? I have wondered though - what's your view on rpers who might want to portray your characters as a muse? Not to take credit on them of course, but just so they can continue the story through rp? Just curious bc I'm sure others have also wondered your views!

AWEAWEAWEAWE I’M SO FLATTERED AAAA ( /u\)💦

TBH i’m completely ok with anybody’s interpretations, I encourage y’alls creativity and drive and I honest to goodness don’t think that what I say my character’s personalities are SUPPOSED to be like, should deter or change what your assumptions are. I feel like, that leaves more creative space for y’all to get imaginative and have fun with, and that’s more important than canon representations or my personal preferences.

So please, RP your hearts out- and IF you’re comfortable with sharing, send me a link! I would LOVE to see what ya have in store!!

The personal character development of Louis this past year has just….astonished me. From becoming a first time father, to losing his best friend and mother, to confidently pursuing a (currently flourishing) solo career, to building his smart business repertoire, to reinforcing the importance of strong family ties at the most vulnerable of times, to optimistically rebuilding tender friendships he surely misses like the ones he shared with Zayn and Harry. My heart truly couldn’t be any fuller of Louis and who he shows himself to be each and every passing day. Please continue letting him grow as a person; stronger, smarter, and braver. If you care for him, you’d want nothing more than that.
