and i've no idea how to title it

that AWFUL writer feel when you’ve got both an idea for a story AND  a working title for a fic

but can’t for the LIFE of you think of a plot or where to go with the story, but you REALLY want to be able to write it because it’s a really neat idea

I have this idea for a moana fic inspired by this beautiful piece of fanart where I take on my own interpretation of how I think water spirt moana could actually work in the movie universe

basically the story takes place on motunui decades after the events of the movie. moana’s super old and (partially because I’m a jerk ) the fic would open with moana dying. her people send her out to sea as a burial because they know that’s what she would want most.

maui’s there. of course he is. sometime after the ceremony he’s quietly walking around the beach when the ocean starts going crazy splashing at his ankles. he thinks the ocean is just trying to comfort him, so he doesn’t pay much attention to it, but he doesn’t really push it away either.

that is until he sees a bright flash of blue light. he looks out at the water just as a large wave rises up and sort of looms over him for a short moment before falling into the shape of what moana looked like when she and maui had just met. like in the art piece, there’s a spiral in her chest similar to that on her necklace.

maui’s a little taken aback. almost doesn’t believe that it’s actually moana. but then she says something to him, maybe she makes some sort of wisecrack joke. and maui just. attempts to throw his arms around her because he can’t believe it’s actually her and that she’s actually standing in front of him talking to him. of course the hug doesn’t really work. she’s made of water.

he asks how this is possible. she explains that when she was sent out to sea, the ocean gave her her own heart. moana opens her now-starry necklace and there’s a clear-blue stone inside. it’s beating.

after they get everything cleared up, they run off on some adventure. moana finally gets to explore more than she ever could when she was alive and she’s super excited. she convinces maui to come with her by playing off some sort of “you have literally the entire ocean protecting you” speech.

and off they go.

I really want to go into detail about this adventure, but I’m having a lot of trouble coming up with where they could go. I’m thinking maybe they return to te fiti for more answers about water spirit moana. but other than that I’m having trouble coming up with some plot points

if anyone has any helpful suggestions, I’d love to hear them!

(The title I’m thinking of using is The Ocean is a Friend of Mine)

She didn’t know until it was too late. She didn’t sense that she was falling. And how could she? It was new. It was all new. New and unexplored and scary. Scary and exciting and exhilarating. Love could do that, you know. Make you feel all those things. Make you feel everything but also nothing at all. Make your heart race with anticipation but keep your mind so completely blank that you don’t even know what you’re anticipating. She didn’t know how it worked, but she knew that was how she felt around him. She had always felt that way, she realized that now, but she had just been too blind to notice it before. Every time he looked at her she felt her throat go scratchy and dry, her heart pounding so hard it hurt, her eyes becoming wide, but she never knew. She never realized what those branches of emotion all led back to. But she knew now, couldn’t not know. Oh how she wished she didn’t! How she wished that she had no idea what these feelings meant, that they were normal. She knew better. She knew now. She knew, she knew, she knew. She knew it all. She knew it was love.
—  Well I’m very emotional right now, and instead of crying over old pictures, I decided to actually start writing again (I haven’t written in months so we’ll see where this goes) This might get better or it might get worse, allI know is that there will be more parts coming
How James Potter Got Coffee With His Favorite Author

Jily, “I’m an author who just published my first book and you work at a bookstore and recommend my own book to me when I come in” au

“James are you crying?” Remus asked.

It was a slow afternoon at the book store they worked at. James had been lounging behind the register and reading the latest book Remus had recommended to him. It was new and the paper smelled and felt lovely. It was a heavy hardback that was awkward to hold and the jacket had long ago been slipped off and placed in a drawer. But the story itself was so amazing that James hardly paid attention to those other things. He was completely enraptured by the amazing writing of L.J. Evans.

“No, there must just be dust in my eye,” James said but the sniffling and foggy glasses were a complete give away so he sighed and nodded.

“I knew it’d make you cry,” Remus said. He had teared up when he read it, and James had laughed at him. Well now neither of them were laughing- they were too busy crying over the beautiful ending of this book.

“I think I need a moment to think about my life,” James said.

okay so i’ve been thinking about the title “blurryface” a lot after listening to fairly local and i was thinking about the idea of cognitive dissonance which is like holding conflicting ideas and sometimes what you think isn’t consistent with what you do and i get that vibe a lot from fairly local and then i feel like that ties into the whole “blurryface” thing because when your external self and your actions don’t match up with how you feel and your internal self then that could make you just feel really mixed up and like your self is blurry in that sense

Hello.

This is I who have become Myun Bunny, dudumchit, EXO’s funniest, the Suho who protects EXO. (t/n: that sentence was a lot harder to translate than it should have been…)

It’s been a while but today, I got to chat with EXO-L’s so I was very happy.

The chatting event is at 7 but I was supposed to come earlier and write things

and because I couldn’t I think that I was unable to chat smoothly and adlib well so for that I apologize.

What I said about how chatting was like Instant MSG was something that came out regretfully

so everyone I would like it if you didn’t worry too much. Hahaha

Then I will see you next time with a better chatting event.

Until now, this was EXO’s leader Suho.


Anyway I’m EXO’s funniest Kim Suho!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

After today’s fun chatting event…

forget about their royal titles.. and put yourself in their shoes and seriously answer this: how would you feel if you saw someone camped out in the boot of a car purely for the purpose of earning money by taking unnecessary and invasive photographs of your child during their free time?? your parental instincts would kick in, and you would take action against it becoming a regular occurrence - if anyone says otherwise, they’re lying. all william and kate are doing are being good, protective & loving parents towards their two very young children who are still so vulnerable and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that, despite what anyone else may say.
