My Name’s Simon. For the most part my life is totally normal. I have a family that I actually like, and there’s my friends. We do everything friends do. We drink way too much iced coffee, while gorging on carbs, so I’m just like you. Except I have one huge ass secret… nobody knows I’m gay. I’m done living in a world where I don’t get to be who I am. I deserve a great love story, and I want someone to share it with. Disclaimer, this is about to get romantic as F.

Love, Simon (2018) Dir. Greg Berlanti

I was wondering after I saw your amazing writers tips how do you find a spot to describe what your characters are wearing

For the most part, I’d say you should do it when when your narrator first spots the character in question.

One of the first things you notice about someone is their appearance so, personally, I feel that having descriptions of appearance happen as soon as the character is introduced into the scene flows better than having it happen in the middle of a conversation. It’s sort of weird to have your narrator suddenly go “he was wearing khaki pants and bright black shoes” out of nowhere. 

As for describing your narrator’s outfit, think about situations where you think about what you’re wearing. It’s probably usually either when you first put the outfit on, when you’re feeling self-conscious about it, or when you’re adjusting a piece of clothing.

I’ve gone over two years with nothing more than a wild guestimation of how many letters are in the Rachel & Co. collection. I’ve taken to saying there are 700ish out of habit, but to be entirely honest there could be anywhere between 500 and 1000.

So tonight I decided to sit down and at least try to figure out a ballpark number.

By my count the letters of the “main characters”, their immediate families, and very close friends (Nell, etc.) add up right around 725. I didn’t individually add up all the letters sent by casual friends and distant relatives, but just eyeballing it I’m going to say our grand total is going to end up a bit shy of 800.

The three biggest letter senders are Allie (Will & Jack’s mom) with +/- 215, Rachel with +/- 135 and Lilla a distant third with +/- 70.

Despite the large number of letters Allie sends they tend to be quite a bit shorter (usually 4 pages to Rachel’s 8 to 12), so I’ll be curious when this is all done to see how close the actual page count is between the two of them.

The reason I haven’t talked more about Allie up until now is that (while she seems like a wonderful woman who I honestly like more and more as I go along) her letters are exactly what you would expect letters between a mom and her teenage sons to be.

The Allie letters I transcribed today were a two week saga of “Does your dorm room have curtains? Does it need curtains? Are you going to buy curtains? Do you want me to buy you curtains? I’m going to Buffalo next week I’m going to buy you curtains. How many windows do you need curtains for? I need to know how big your windows are. No, the width. How many windows are there? You know what, just draw me a picture. Why are there curtains in the picture you drew? Allen already has curtains??”

Also Allie doesn’t like periods or capital letters.

So much of my identity is wrapped up in being creative, that when my brain fogs over and everything I draw looks wrong, it’s devastating.

Pairing: Steve Harrington x Harringrove!Reader

Billy has always been a protective brother, maybe over the top, always keeping an eye and worrying about your boyfriends. Now that you have moved to Hawkins, he somehow felt a bit more relaxed, since the town was small and full of “losers”, according to him. But he wasn’t expecting that you would chose exactly his nemesis, Steve Harrington.

Of course Steve was shocked when he found out you were Hargrove’s younger sister. You told him on your 3rd date and it was too late for Steve to run away, he was already deeply into you.

Every time Steve picks you up at your place, Billy keeps staring at you two. However the deadly look on his face doesn’t threaten your boyfriend anymore. Steve was capable of doing everything to have you, even if that meant beating your own brother but of course that wouldn’t happen because you also love your brother a lot.

You also stand up for yourself whenever you need. You keep telling Billy that you’re not a child anymore and he understands it every time.

But being with Steve involved making out in the bathroom during breaks, hanging out after school to the movies or even to his place, where you can enjoy his pool and be the two of you alone, just enjoying each other.

“I never thought I’d say it, but I love you Hargrove.”- he’d say all the time with a cute smirk on his face.

You can’t help yourself and laugh whenever he did that.

“I love you too, Harrington.“

But the best day was when you introduced Steve to your whole family: your dad, Susan, Max and Billy obviously. Even though introducing them both wouldn’t be completely necessary. After a pleasing night, with Billy behaving himself properly due your father’s presence, Billy comes to you two and playfully punching Steve on his shoulder, says:

“Hey, take care of my sister. Maybe she did a good choice indeed.”

Your heart then is filled with happiness and you hug your brother. You know he meant that, even though he’d never admit it. Blood is thicker and love is stronger than rivalry.
