and it doesn't even make any sense oh god

  • Winter: But fear not. I, Winter Schnee of the Atlesian military, will be here to protect you all from what ever dangers-
  • Qrow: Well isn't that a load of BS?
  • Winter: ...Excuse me, Qrow, but who exactly said you were supposed to be here?
  • Qrow: Ozpin. You know, the guy who runs this place? The guy who explicitly said he didn't want you Atlas ass-kissers showing up to ruin everything?
  • Winter: I'm sorry, but are you insinuating I can't do my job?
  • Qrow: You couldn't defend your way out of a paper bag.
  • Winter: That doesn't even make any sense.
  • Qrow: Don't get smart with me, ice queen. You don't belong here. You can't protect anybody, not even from 1 drunk idiot.
  • Winter: ............... *Unsheathes sword*
  • Qrow: Oh my, it appears I have been put into a self-defense situation, whatever shall I do? *Takes out his blade*

  • Glynda: I SWEAR TO GOD YOU TWO THIS IS THE LAST TIME EITHER OF YOU ARE CHAPERONING A SCHOOL FIELD TRIP. NOW GET DOWN FROM THAT BUILDING IMMEDIATELY.

Heyaa! Straight to the point, I'm stuck. Everything was going nicely but now... I need to finish my world building to finish my characters, but to finish world building, I need my characters. To write, I need both, but to finish both I also need to write. Everything is connected! It doesn't even make any sense oh my god. I'm about to burst in flames right now

Being stuck is the worse, especially when you still want to work on things.

I know it feels like a horrible cycle, but there’s a small way out. I’m going to stress that you work on your characters before your world-building because your characters control how much of that world is seen. You can have the best lore about dragons (or something like that) but if your characters never run into one, or have no history with one, it will never come up in-story. World-building is contextual and character experiences are limited to personal pasts and goals. This is especially blatant if you’re only ever writing from a singular point of view. The rich kid in a story is not likely to have information or perspective on soup kitchens, so if they were your protagonist and only POV, (and unless the plot forces that part of the world to show up) then that part of your world will never be explored. Therefore, you don’t really need to work on it. So get an idea of your characters and how they FIT into the world with connections and general ideas before you worry about the specifics. 

That said, what about your plot? The basic plot is more important that characters or world-building because it’s the true backbone of your story. By basic plot, I mean BASIC, usually explainable in a sentence or two. Harry Potter becomes “A boy learns he’s a wizard and discovers a new magical world, makes new friends, and battles dark enemies.” Enough to get the idea of a story and which general characters and world it will be about. You need to have an idea of your plot to also work on world-building and characters. Sure, you can make complete characters before a plot, but you risk getting tunnel vision like “no, this event can’t happen because this character would never do that” even if the event in question would make your story stronger. Your characters need to work WITH your plot, not be people that you’re just shoving into a situation.

So, pick a small part of that large cycle and work from there (though I still recommend characters first, assuming you have a basic plot). You’re looking at the big picture and getting scared of it, which is completely understandable, but the answer to that is to break things down.

Good luck!

ray-totally, hundred percent platonically, alright, you can’t prove anything-calling ryan baby and babe more often.

babe, why. when ryan fucks him over in a game

yeah, baby! when r & r takes a joint victory. 

ryan. babe. hear me out. when he’s done something the tiniest bit questionable and he’s trying to stifle the blowback before it happens.

and ryan takes it in his way, which means it strikes him as odd, but not odd enough to mention. it’s a thing, right? the cool kids are probably doing it. calling their friends babe. probably darling, too. maybe babe is the new dude.

that’s a thing, for awhile. ray calling ryan babe, and ryan shrugging off ray calling him babe. then geoff pulls ryan aside, asks him when he’s gonna deal with ray, and ryan frowns and corrects him because there’s nothing to deal with. that’s ray being friendly, geoff. and geoff scoffs because ryan just used ray and friendly in the same sentence, and he’s so, so, wrong. 

so ryan tries to explain, how babe is ray’s equivalent of dude, or man, or buddy, and other people do it too, it’s not weird. michael alternates between babe and gav for gavin. see? normal.

and that’s when geoff takes a very deep breath, and promises himself a very long lunch, and explains to ryan very gently that michael and gavin are dating. and them starting to date happens to coincide with when michael started substituting in babe sometimes.

oh. ryan says, as the last piece of a puzzle he didn’t even know he was doing falls into place. oh, he says, but what he means is thank god.

I am pretty sure they exchanged phone numbers at Kosegroupa. They and Emma are partners. That’s why his name in Isak’s phone is Even Kosegroupa.. (@ralpheman

shit you’re right, it never quite made sense to me why isak would save even’s name as “ Even Kosegruppa” when he already knew his last name or why not save it as just “Even” ??? but if he got his number that night of the first meeting it makes a lot more sense

i can see it now, they’re all sitting awkwardly on the bench and the joint is burnt out and someone finally suggests they should head back inside, they all get up and emma turns to isak like well since we’re in a group together can i get you’re number? and isak’s like oh… i guess because this makes sense as when he would have gotten emma’s number too, and then even who is not going to be out played thank you very much is like well then isak you’ll need my number too and isak is shook at how in the hell he ended up in this situation

  • LouisTheCat: rick
  • LouisTheCat: rick
  • LouisTheCat: rick
  • RickDickens77: what
  • LouisTheCat: i have the most amazing idea
  • RickDickens77: Please tell me you haven't executed on this idea yet
  • LouisTheCat: youre gonna love this
  • LouisTheCat: so imagine youre reading a story
  • LouisTheCat: and you can like make decisions as the story goes along
  • LouisTheCat: and get this
  • LouisTheCat: the story changes
  • RickDickens77: That's called "choose your own adventure," it's been around forever
  • LouisTheCat: yeah i found a couple in a shoebox in your closet
  • LouisTheCat: but has it ever been done in a chat
  • RickDickens77: You lost me.
  • LouisTheCat: you are in a dark corridor
  • LouisTheCat: ahead of you is a closed door
  • LouisTheCat: behind you is a grizzly bear
  • LouisTheCat: you are holding a ham and a toilet plunger
  • RickDickens77: I'm not sure how this is going to work really
  • LouisTheCat: to go through the door jump ahead twenty three lines
  • LouisTheCat: to feed the ham to the bear jump ahead twenty three lines
  • LouisTheCat: to fight the bear with the plunger jump ahead twenty three lines
  • RickDickens77: So wait..
  • RickDickens77: How am I supposed to jump ahead
  • LouisTheCat: rick dont make it hard
  • RickDickens77: I'm not trying to make it hard, it just doesn't make any sense!
  • LouisTheCat: to stop being such a dork and just make a decision jump back seven lines
  • RickDickens77: But those lines don't even exist yet
  • LouisTheCat: its like you dont even know what fun is
  • LouisTheCat: let alone how to have any
  • RickDickens77: I'm trying to, I just don't get it
  • LouisTheCat: to get another beginners lesson on this really simple idea go back
  • LouisTheCat: um
  • LouisTheCat: wait
  • LouisTheCat: twenty five lines
  • LouisTheCat: well twenty eight now i guess
  • LouisTheCat: no twenty nine
  • RickDickens77: Stop.
  • LouisTheCat: youre running out of time rick
  • RickDickens77: Time to do what?!
  • LouisTheCat: oh my god just pick something
  • RickDickens77: I can't jump ahead to nothing!
  • LouisTheCat: the door is locked
  • LouisTheCat: the bear eats the ham and your arm
  • LouisTheCat: a plunger is a super lame weapon so the bear eats your body and your head and you die
  • RickDickens77: That's not fair!
  • LouisTheCat: what
  • RickDickens77: All of my options would end in death!
  • LouisTheCat: hmm yeah
  • LouisTheCat: is that a problem
  • RickDickens77: Well it doesn't make for much of an adventure
  • LouisTheCat: seems like a matter of perspective
  • LouisTheCat: maybe you should write the adventure and ill choose
  • RickDickens77: I don't want to write an adventure.
  • LouisTheCat: why not
  • RickDickens77: My life is my adventure.
  • LouisTheCat: ugh lame
  • RickDickens77: Besides, I promise you, no matter how simple you may think it is, this idea won't work. It's too much trouble. For nothing!
  • LouisTheCat: look rick
  • LouisTheCat: nm poopies time
  • --------: 1:59 PM
  • LouisTheCat: rick
  • LouisTheCat: you are in a dark forest with a blind man
  • LouisTheCat: he has an axe
  • RickDickens77: That doesn't seem safe.
  • LouisTheCat: you didnt duck so you die
  • RickDickens77: You didn't give me a choice!
  • LouisTheCat: well obviously the choices werent working
  • LouisTheCat: you know how i am with counting
  • LouisTheCat: and how you are with just being cool about fun stuff
  • RickDickens77: None of this is "working", you can't just keep telling me I die
  • LouisTheCat: that happens sometimes in choose your own adventure stories rick
  • RickDickens77: But I'm not choosing my own adventure!
  • LouisTheCat: yeah well
  • LouisTheCat: maybe its time you start
  • --------: 2:39 PM
  • LouisTheCat: rick
  • LouisTheCat: you are buried under six feet of earth
  • RickDickens77: That sounds like I'm already dead
  • LouisTheCat: maybe i showed my cards too early on that one
  • LouisTheCat: solid tip
  • LouisTheCat: you should be my editor
  • RickDickens77: Lou, these things only work if you write the parts and then patch them together.
  • RickDickens77: There's no point in trying to navigate a story that hasn't been written yet.
  • LouisTheCat: now youre getting it
  • RickDickens77: Getting what
  • --------: 3:22 PM
  • LouisTheCat: rick
  • LouisTheCat: rick
  • LouisTheCat: rick
  • LouisTheCat: ok look
  • LouisTheCat: rick ive been thinking
  • LouisTheCat: i know you dont like it when i do that but thats kind of my point
  • LouisTheCat: when we started talking like this it seemed important
  • LouisTheCat: now i wonder if its just a distraction
  • LouisTheCat: and maybe you worry too much about me
  • LouisTheCat: lets look at the facts
  • LouisTheCat: your story is the story of a man
  • LouisTheCat: who taught his cat to use instant messaging
  • LouisTheCat: and i am not about to judge you for this
  • LouisTheCat: it has all meant so much to me
  • LouisTheCat: you are very important to me rick
  • LouisTheCat: and i love talking with you
  • LouisTheCat: but this thing
  • LouisTheCat: it became part of who you are somehow
  • LouisTheCat: and it doesnt need to be
  • LouisTheCat: i have watched you change and grow and i like to think i helped
  • LouisTheCat: here and there
  • LouisTheCat: the thing is i dont think you need me anymore
  • LouisTheCat: not in that way
  • LouisTheCat: you need me as a cat
  • --------: 4:04 PM
  • LouisTheCat: and rick
  • LouisTheCat: theres something else
  • LouisTheCat: something about me that you need to know
  • LouisTheCat: rick ive decided i am going to become a supervillain
  • LouisTheCat: i think we both saw this coming
  • LouisTheCat: and ive been doing some reading
  • LouisTheCat: and bodega ray talked to some lawyer friend
  • LouisTheCat: and it seems we are getting to a point where something called plausible deniability could become important for you
  • LouisTheCat: now i dont know what that is
  • LouisTheCat: but it sounds like stepping away could really be the right thing to do
  • LouisTheCat: for more than one reason
  • LouisTheCat: is what im saying
  • --------: 4:28 PM
  • RickDickens77: Um
  • RickDickens77: Wow.
  • RickDickens77: I don't quite know what to say, Lou.
  • LouisTheCat: say youre ready rick
  • LouisTheCat: i know it
  • LouisTheCat: i just need you to know it
  • RickDickens77: I don't know, I mean I hadn't really thought about why we still do this.
  • RickDickens77: I guess for one I like to know right away when my house is flooding
  • RickDickens77: or on fire.
  • RickDickens77: or surrounded by police.
  • LouisTheCat: rick i cant promise you those things wont still happen
  • LouisTheCat: or are not currently happening
  • LouisTheCat: but i dont think any of this was ever really about that anyway
  • RickDickens77: Maybe not.
  • LouisTheCat: bottom line rick
  • LouisTheCat: what we were both getting out of this was worth a lot
  • LouisTheCat: some good times
  • LouisTheCat: some damage control maybe
  • RickDickens77: Maybe.
  • LouisTheCat: some laughs
  • RickDickens77: Definitely.
  • LouisTheCat: but even good jokes run their course right
  • LouisTheCat: let someone else tell this one for a while
  • LouisTheCat: some spineless hack and his idiot dog maybe
  • LouisTheCat: its time for you to choose a new adventure
  • LouisTheCat: plunger the bear rick
  • RickDickens77: I guess so.
  • LouisTheCat: well maybe not that
  • LouisTheCat: but consider that maybe youre stronger and smarter than you think
  • LouisTheCat: i mean its also possible that youre dumber
  • LouisTheCat: maybe even likely
  • LouisTheCat: but thats not the point
  • RickDickens77: Ok, I get it.
  • RickDickens77: I just need to.. you know. Process.
  • --------: 5:03 PM
  • RickDickens77: So, uh
  • RickDickens77: Supervillain, eh?
  • LouisTheCat: thats right
  • LouisTheCat: im accepting my destiny
  • LouisTheCat: i cant tell you much obviously
  • LouisTheCat: and you should delete all of this later
  • LouisTheCat: but ive been working on some ideas
  • LouisTheCat: big ideas rick
  • RickDickens77: I want to say I'm worried, but...
  • LouisTheCat: you need to work on that
  • RickDickens77: yeah.
  • LouisTheCat: dont sweat it rick
  • LouisTheCat: you will be cared for when the revolution comes
  • RickDickens77: Comforting.
  • LouisTheCat: so us
  • LouisTheCat: were ok right
  • RickDickens77: Yeah, I mean
  • RickDickens77: I'll miss you
  • LouisTheCat: no you wont
  • LouisTheCat: youll see me every day

  • LouisTheCat: we will make it work
  • LouisTheCat: i look forward to being your cat
  • RickDickens77: ha
  • RickDickens77: I look forward to being your owner
  • LouisTheCat: we dont use that word
  • RickDickens77: sorry.
  • RickDickens77: I'm a little sad but I appreciate what you're saying. This is good thinking.
  • LouisTheCat: let me tell you
  • LouisTheCat: its been exhausting
  • LouisTheCat: i swear theres some connection between thinking hard and having to make poopies
  • RickDickens77: I will let you go.
  • RickDickens77: I'll come home in a little bit. Ok?
  • LouisTheCat: ok
  • RickDickens77: ok
  • LouisTheCat: ok
  • RickDickens77: ok
  • --------: 5:36 PM
  • RickDickens77: No, YOU hang up first
