and the quote i know is a bit overused but i love it

categorized and generalized all the types of tumblr aesthetics i have come across.

I have been going through archives for the last five years on tumblr now, and i can’t help but notice that a lot of blogs are the same. There seems to be a pattern in the sorts of aesthetics i run up against. So, in my exhaustion, i tried coming up with all the different aesthetics, and i tried to put them into certain categories. Obviously, some of these categories are mixed with others.

Try not to...

Summary: Dean x Reader - Dean challenges the reader to a try not to laugh challenge using pickup lines, but for her the challenge turns into a bit more of a try not to fall deeper in love with the lovable dork.

Word count: 3637

Triggers: None unless you count cheesy pickup lines

Y/N = Your name

A/N: Written for @impalaimagining‘s Cheesy Pickup Line Challenge. I had two lines for this one: no. 24:  On a scale of 1 to 10: you’re a 9 and I’m the 1 you need and no. 35:  If I could rearrange the alphabet, I’d put ‘U’ and ‘I’ together. Both are marked in bold where they appear. (Special thanks to @maydayfigmentwho helped me out when I got stuck XD)

You and dean would do little challenges like others did movie nights. Quiet night in? Fuck it, I bet you I could kick your ass in the gun range. Rainy day? I bet I have the better insults. Research days? I bet I could find the info before you, and so on. Some people played games or just relaxed together. You didn’t even know what relax meant, and whilst it drove Sammy crazy, Dean was always on board. The crazier the challenge, the funnier the memory.

That night you were in serious need of something to do. The big baddies of the world had been keeping a low profile and on top of that the weather was absolutely shit. If you didn’t stretch either your legs or your mind you were sure you’d actually go mad and start crawling on the walls any minute. Luckily, Dean seemed to have the same idea as he entered the library, armed with three beers and a shit-eating grin.

“Up for a challenge (Y/N)?” The hunter said, forgoing a greeting completely as he handed Sam and you a beer each before dropping down onto the couch next to you. “I’ve got a good one for ya,” He added, the mischievous glint in his eyes promising good times to be had by all. Or maybe not all, if Sam’s groan was anything to go by.

“Sounds like a bad idea… I’m in,” You said with a laugh as you straightened up a bit in your seat. All ears as both the oldest Winchester and you ignored Sam’s muttered complaints. Taking a sip of your beer you waited as the boyish grin grew on Dean’s face and his green eyes lit up. Somehow he was always pleasantly surprised when you took him up on a challenge, which was kinda silly, since you never really said no to one.

“Alright then, I saw this one online. It was called something like try not to laugh,” Dean started, his own grin wide where your own smile fell a little as you sank back into the couch with a roll of your eyes and a bored groan.

What type of Ships do each Twice ships clarify as

I found this post: http://namo-or-death.tumblr.com/post/158809755438/types-of-ships And if you have the time, can you classify (in your own opinion is fine) where all the ships stand?

So the lovely Dy, @namo-or-death as most of you know her, requested this a while ago and I’m only just getting around to now (so sorry!!) But here it is. These classifications are all taken from the above post which I will copy down here to make your lives and my lives easier but credit to the original creator. 

types of ships

  • gigantic deluxe cruise: 34705 search results on everywhere, dominates the fanzine market, badass edits with lots of heart-wrenching quotes since they’re probably the main characters. author probably shipped them as well, tbh. usually the “opposite personality” pair, overused tropes, nicknames, etc.
  • modest viking longship: has been there since the beginning of time, always appears as a side ship in fics, especially those with all the main cruises in one universe. yet has surprisingly little main fics considering how the characters basically aren’t shipped with anyone else but each other.
  • the “aww” submarine: that non-mainstream pair whose fanart pops up on your dash once a while. everyone lowkey ships them in a ‘in another universe where my otp didn’t exist’ way. see: “I don’t get why don’t more people ship xxx!” actually, they do.
  • the sturdy fishing boat: usually clashes with one of the mainstream ships. people either ship them, think they’re good as they are now, or oppose them with a passion. with enough supporters it may upgrade to a bigger fishing vessel, garner quite a bit of attention and start discourse with the cruise oppressors. mostly stays in their waters and are chill if u don’t insult them
  • the driftwood: tinier than the piece of lumber that jack and rose couldn’t hold on to at the same time. you need wood? you make wood. EMPHASIS: usually consists of couples that would theoretically be good together since a) they are minor characters and b) they have had zero interaction
  • the lone canoe: most perplexing of all. these characters are well known, have decent interaction, yet are never shipped together. when it is suggested people frown upon you as they are deeply rooted within their prejudices, but convert someone and you will be much more satisfied with the content than poor driftwood.

PadMay

Day 20: Favorite RotS Quote

It’s hard to choose just one quote because I love so much of what Padme says in this movie. 

  • “So this is how liberty dies, with thunderous applause.” 

A bit overused but this quote shows exactly how Padme felt about the Empire and Palpatine. She’s bitter with a hint of Disappointed But Not Surprised. She knows that the state of the galaxy has really gone down hill and it both saddens and angers her.


  • “Hold me, like you did by the lake on Naboo; so long ago when there was nothing but our love. No politics, no plotting, no war.” 

Padme is trying to hold onto the happiness that she and Anakin once had. She knows things are different now and she just wants to be reassured that their love is something that hasn’t changed, even though deep down she probably already knows that it has. It’s a very human response to an impossible situation.


  • “What if the democracy we thought we were serving no longer exists, and the Republic has become the very evil we have been fighting to destroy?”

Again, Padme exhibits knowledge and wisdom that things are not as they seem. She’s pulling back the metaphorical curtain and questions things that no one has questioned before. She knows there is something wrong here that others don’t see, or are unwilling to see.


  • “Obi-Wan, is Anakin all right?”

Even after all of the terrible things that have happened, Padme still cares about Anakin. Some would say she’s weak and delusional for still loving him but I think it shows how genuinely she loves and cares for Anakin. This quote is later mirrored by the newly awakened Vader asking if Padme is all right, showing the parallels of their devotion and care for one another.


  • “There is good in him. I know there is… still…”

Her dying words. Yet again, after all of the terrible things that have happened, Padme still believes that there is good inside of Anakin. She doesn’t give up hope on him, even at the very end of her life, further showing her compassionate and forgiving nature. And yet again, some would say that this makes her weak and delusional. But her last words are almost verbatim of what Luke said about Vader, “There is still good in him.” Luke is regarded as a wise and compassionate hero because of this, and he gets it from Padme. Her last words are of love and forgiveness and that love and forgiveness carries over to their son.

If you try and figure out the rules about creative writing, you’re going to find that established authors and editors often disagree about nuances of the craft. There are, of course, some hard-and-fast rules about punctuation and grammar, but so many rules vary from genre to genre, generation to generation, audience to audience. Sometimes there are rules that boil down, simply, to consistency

So you might even say that you have your own set of writing rules. Each and every author’s rules are slightly unique. That unique set of “rules” is part of what makes up your author’s voice.

So when are the appropriate times to break those rules, your own rules? They happen, don’t they? In my last post, I gave a list of filler words and overused words that you can consider cutting out of your writing to help sharpen it. But everything–even mediocre vocabulary, poor grammar, and repetitive structure–has a place in writing. 

Breaking Your Mold to Write Character Voice

Jordan is an author (hypothetically). She has been writing for years, gotten an English degree, read a zillion books, and written several novel drafts of her own. Over her years of writing, she has finally come into her own voice. When she writes, she no longer feels derivative or inexperienced. It’s freeing and wonderful! 

But there’s one thing that Jordan hasn’t figured out yet…and that’s character voice. Her authorial voice, while wonderful and unique, seeps into the voice of all of her characters. The result is that all of her characters, whether speaking or narrating, sound exactly the same: they sound like her.

Part of what makes a multi-POV novel come to life is variation in character voice. Part of what makes an author’s portfolio stand out is the vast scope of voices their characters use across their works. Part of what sets apart side characters as characters instead of tools for the protagonist or plot devices for the narrative is a unique and compelling voice. 

So how does one accomplish such a thing? 

Well, there are many ways. But today I’m focusing on language and syntax, particularly in the rule-breaking department. 

The first exercise you can do is take a piece of dialogue, preferably just a back and forth between two characters, and write it one way, then switch roles. Have the characters say basically the same thing, but in their own voices. 

Author Voice Conversation

R: Oh. You’re worried about me
E: I am no such thing. Worrying about you sneaking into enemy territory is like…worrying about a fish drowning in the ocean.
R: You sure seem dead set on stopping me from going.
E: We need to come up with a plan. It would be foolish to just waltz into their territory with no idea what we’re doing.
R: You’re really quite cute when you’re worried.
E: You’d like me to be worried, wouldn’t you? Just go. I don’t know what I’m freaking out about, anyway.
R: Me either. Bye.
E: Bye, idiot. Don’t get caught.
R: *sigh* Is that really what you expect of me?

There’s nothing wrong with this conversation at all. But I’m just writing as if I, personally, was speaking. I know what the personality of these characters are, but that isn’t necessarily enough. I’m going to inject a little bit of their own tics, their own backgrounds, into their speech.

Character Voice Conversations

R: Oh. You’re worried about me, aren’t you?
E: Really? Please. I don’t worry about anyone.
R: But you don’t want me to go.
E: I just…think that we need to come up with a plan first.
R: You’re really kinda cute when you’re worried.
E: I’m NOT—Grah! Fine! Go, then. I don’t know why I’m trying to help you, anyway.
R: Neither do I. I sure as hell didn’t ask for it.
E: See ya, then. Try not to get blood on my shirt.
R: Go drown in the tears of your unborn children, Tiger.

And now, roles switched:

E: Heh. You’re…worried.
R: Fuck off. I don’t have energy to waste worrying about you.
E: You want me to stay. Safe.
R: I mean…having a plan would be a good idea, but what in hell do I know? The fuck are you doing?
E: You’ve got some worry on your face.
R: Don’t touch me. Don’t even talk to me. I’m sorry I mentioned anything about a plan.
E: So am I. I’ll bring you skin of an atosh as a trophy.
R: Bye, Tiger. If you’re not back in one day, I’ll assume you died.
E: Don’t wait that long. I’d love to come back and find peace and quiet waiting for me instead of you.

What sort of things influence the diction of your characters? In example 1, R says, “You’re really quite cute when you’re worried,” whereas in example 2, she says “kinda,” instead. In both of the latter examples, R is more prone to using “fuck” and “hell.”

In one of my novels, I have two narrators: K and B. K is well-read, well-spoken and a little snobbish. B isn’t an idiot, but he dropped out of school in (what amounts to) the fifth grade. He’s spent a large portion of his life outside of society and largely lived his life how he wanted. So when they say basically the same thing, K might say,

“I’ve got this covered. Thank you, but, honestly, it isn’t anything to worry about.” 

Where B would say,

“I’ve got this. For real. Thanks.”

In general, as I write their dialogue, B uses more contractions, shorter sentences, and doesn’t use many words beyond the 1000 most commonly used. He makes grammatical mistakes (Saying “me” when he should say “I”) He has more verbal tics, “Um…” “Er–” “Well, it’s just that…” etc. K speaks with much more flowery language and tends to elaborate beyond what is necessary. This means unneeded adverbs, “moment,” “rather/quite/somewhat,” superfluous reflexive pronouns, etc. I have one character who tends to speak in run-on sentences whenever she uses the word “because.” I have one character who compulsively addresses the people he’s speaking to, so much so that other characters make fun of him for it.

These are all things that, in general, I avoid doing. But using them purposefully helps to set character voices apart. 

Narrator Voice

To some extent, narrator voice can use these same tactics. If you’re using multi-pov, especially, these kinds of nuances will help your reader really feel like they’re reading the words of multiple characters, rather than just being told they are. If you’re writing an intimate third-person or first person, these same principles can help bring your narrative voice to life, just like the words written in quotes. 

Think about these two opening lines and how the voice of the narrator gives you two very different impressions about the same event:

The sun was rising. Though the scent of the overnight dew hung heavy over our tent, the sleeping bag hugged us close together. She smelled warm, and even the scent of our intermingled sweat was pleasant in the early morning. I wondered briefly if the residual alcohol was softening reality, but ultimately it didn’t matter. I was in love.

The sun was coming up. The air was heavy, humid in the muggy morning. Our sleeping bag was wrapped tight around us, the moisture from our breaths clinging around our heads. Sticky and warm, she still smelled like sex. It was probably an objectively terrible smell, but the memories made it nice. I blinked, wondering if that last glass of wine was still hanging over me, but I don’t guess it mattered. I fucking loved this girl. 

So think about it! There are tons of factors that could go into how your characters speaks…and thus, what “rules” you break in their dialogue.

  • How educated or well-read is your character?
  • What influence does their culture have on their diction?
  • How wordy do they tend to be?
  • If they use as few words as possible, maybe mostly grunts, what is the motivation behind that?
  • How much attention do they like to bring to themselves?
  • How self-conscious are they about their voice? Their speech patterns? The effect their words have on others?
  • How long does it take them to get to the meat of what they’re saying?
  • How much do they make others laugh?
  • How optimistic or pessimistic are they?
  • How much do they try to avoid talking about themselves or their emotions?
  • At what point do they end a conversation they don’t like?
  • How long does it take them to get angry in a disagreement? 
  • How does anger alter their speech? 
  • How does overwhelming sadness alter their speech?
  • How does immense joy alter their speech?
  • What words do they use with noticeable frequency?
  • Do they speak differently in intimate settings than in public?

Don’t be afraid to use any and every word to give your characters their own voices. As I always say, to anyone in basically any situation: I don’t mind if you break any rule at all…as long as you broke it with deliberated intent. 

Happy revising!

anonymous asked:

pros & cons of dating Joshua please?

Disclaimer: All of these are just based on my sometimes-biased opinions and whatever I wrote below does not, in any way, completely and correctly describes Josh.

One more thing I noticed is that these pros and cons are based on what I consider as pros and cons. Some of the pros might be cons to you guys and vice versa, so please do take this with a grain of salt and remember that this is just for entertainment.


Joshua // Hong Jisoo

Pros

Joshua is very sensitive with your emotions and is alert when you’re feeling really down. Anxious, scared, terrified–he can see through all of those and he’ll know what to do to calm you down. He loves seeing you smile (and is probably his favorite sight on earth) so he does his best to make you as happy as he can. When you’re happy, he’s happy.

He’s the type of guy who’ll definitely keep your favorites and dislikes in mind. He’ll remember them even if you just say something randomly like “I love potatoes so much” or “Round pastel balloons are so cute” while the two of you are out or something. He wants you to know that whatever you say will never fall on deaf ears and he wants you to feel as appreciated as you make him feel.

With this, he’s a really great listener. He’s the type to let you speak your mind while your hands are entwined together, and he’ll only speak when you’re done. He’ll do his best to make you feel better from anything that bothers you and at the same time make you a better person without crossing any limits (like he wouldn’t speak harshly but he’ll say the truth because he knows that it’s for the best). 

He’ll also assure you that he’s always there for you on whatever you decide on, no matter if he doesn’t like your decision or not. He’s also literally the embodiment of the slightly overused quote “I’m not saying it’s going to be easy, but what I’m saying is you won’t go through it alone”. He’ll be with you every step of the way because he knows you’ll be there for him too.

He will tell you deeper secrets that he almost always keeps from everyone else. He trusts you well enough to let you in, but not enough to burden you with his problems. He’s glad that he has someone he can lean on, especially since he’s part of the oldest hyung line in the group.

Culture-wise, Joshua is very open to differences as he’s been exposed to a lot. If you’re from a different culture, he’ll be more than willing to learn it for you. He won’t restrict you from anything culture-related because he understands that what is not okay to his culture may be okay to some. BUT, he’ll try to talk to you about something that really irks him in a civil manner so as to build a stronger connection and trust between the two of you.

And now that Valentines is coming up, he’ll never forget to bring you flowers and chocolates and take you out (or really do anything what you want to do if flowers and chocolates are not your thing) and probably send a rose to your mother as well.

He’s also probably the type to make anniversaries really special (and if you’d allow, month-saries) and he would most likely talk to his friends about what he can do next because he wants a new surprise every celebration.

Cons

If you’re not the type to lead, I think this might SLIGHTLY stress your relationship (but not heavily). Joshua isn’t exactly the lead in the relationship even if sometimes he can be, so you’ll have to be okay with taking the lead at times.

He might be too gentle, too, so if you’re more for an active, fun, and adventurous relationship, then I think you and Joshua might not be a bit compatible. It’s not that he’s lazy or something, it’s just that he gives me the vibe that he prefers relaxing, lazy days rather than going out to parties or spending Friday nights in noisy clubs. Road trips would be nice once in a while for him, though, especially if you’re out in the wilderness with a van. But other than that, I can’t really see him as someone who’ll be in an adventurous relationship.

Joshua tends to not speak his mind at times, hoping that his problems are going to solve themselves which may sometimes lead to much bigger problems. There are times that he might deem some problems as not important so he might not say them, and he doesn’t want to burden you with them as much as possible. You’ll have to keep on reminding him that you’re always there for him and that his problems are never a burden to you.

Please try not to snap at Joshua. Be open to him as much as possible to prevent snapping out of built-up anger. He’ll think that he’s not doing enough for you and will avoid anything that will make you snap at all costs, which might form a small tension every now and then to the point that it might collectively build up, which might cost you your relationship.


Soonyoung, Jun, and Seokmin on the way! Hope this is good enough because I haven’t been feeling good about my writing these days.

Titles To Know Tuesday: Holy Trinity Fanfic Edition (w/o 8/26 - 9/1)

Well, hello. We meet again. Fancy seeing you all here in this lovely text box. I’m currently eating shrimp tacos and they are so delicious that I might go back and get them for dinner as well. Ok, now that you’re all updated on my life, here’s all the fic I think is top notch from this past week! Past editions of TTKT located here.

Disclaimer: The main ship I read is Hartbig but I also read Swace and Mace and sometimes Jarto and other ships depending on the author. If you have something you think I should be reading, feel free to send it to me and I will 100% check it out! (Oh, and I seriously <3 Grester but I don’t read the fanfic) These lists are always in random order. 

1. Practically Strangers Ch 3: by onemilliongoldstars (Hartbig)

You know that weird elation that comes when you start texting with someone for the first time. Suddenly it’s 4am and all your secrets are spilling out like a toddler trying to pour milk into a cereal bowl for the first time. It’s a strange high for sure, and in the fic, Grace accidentally texts Hannah (a hilarious exchange about Goose btw, who is featured a lot in this fic and who doesn’t love that!?) and they somehow continue to chat back and forth, getting to know each other and such. It’s a slow burn and I’m so excited to see where Ray is taking this because the chemistry is great and the dialogue is snappy and amusing and I am super into it!

Great lines: She allows herself to stop and text Grace back though, because her brain is starting to ache and even when she tries to put her phone to one side it blinks at her until she can’t stand it anymore and takes it up to reply.

2. Oh My Dear : by puns-n-butts (Hartbig)

This story is arranged kind of unusually. It’s written almost like a sonnet vs prose but it also has a typical story flow feel to it. I don’t know, I’m not that verbose about writing style but I really enjoyed this piece for its uniqueness but also for the emotions it portrayed with the scenery alone. There’s something so romantic about winter and snow. It makes the world soft and quiet but it also has the ability to freeze and do so much damage and for that, I love when it is incorporated into a fic like this. I just love winter fics and as Hannah makes her way across town at Grace’s sleepy beckoning, you can feel the anticipation building of what will happen once she arrives. It’s a one-shot, so enjoy it!

Great lines: And they talk. Whisper to each other beneath the blanket, hot breaths on cold skin. And they watch the pinpricks of light flicker all over the city. On, off. Bouncing from the overbearing clouds. Rivers of red lights, tracing motorways, like veins, over the horizon. Blissfully white lights, jumping spots of neon. Lakes of gold.

3. Something, Nothing, Anything: by hartorotica (Mace) 

Guess who’s back? Back again? Jay is back. Tell your friends…. No seriously, tell them. It’s one chapter in and Grace has already burned her house to the ground, Mamrie has called her baby, and I was left stroking at the screen like I could touch their faces in praise and affection. There’s something about the way homegirl sets a scene that leaves me feeling just absolutely dropped into a different universe and even something as simple as Mamrie’s back porch becomes a landscape of small noises and soft motions and a cozy world within words and it’s all just really fucking poetic in a way that is comfortable but you also know any second she’s going to drop the drama in and shake the snow globe upside down and we’ll all be scrambling for our feels. Just read it, ok? You probably already are. Well done.

Great lines: She kind of loves how Mamrie is protective. She also loves how Mamrie says the most incredulous sort of bullshit and gets away with it because it sounds so very convinced, because Hannah’s once told her you can only contract a cold by contact with people who’ve got a virus and not the actual cold, and of coursethat’s the kind of information she remembers. Not how to not overuse an electrical socket, but frigging colds.

4. Making Friends: by didyoustealmytoaster (Hartbig)

This is based on a hilarious quote Grace made in her nottoodeepwithgracehelbig podcast featuring Tyler Oakley. I’d tell you the quote but it would ruin it for you and trust me, it’s worth the surprise. Mamrie is also featured in a fabulous way and I always love that! I will say, I’m normally not a fan of fics where Grace and Hannah have children in them just because it seems weird to me (just a personal thing, no judgment at all, people write some great domestic!Hartbig stuff!) but this one is worth the read for sure and downright giggle-worthy.

Great lines: But Mamrie’s attention is on the little torpedo of a person, running straight at her. She bends down on her way over, mirroring the little girl’s zig-zagging evasion pattern and catches her on her way to the playground, scooping up the little girl like a football.

5. Undertones Part 2: by hartbig-in-onesies (Swace)

Guys, I seriously have a Swace shipping problem. I have such a soft spot for fictional them and everyone who is writing Swace is just forcing my hand here! This is a continuation of what was a one-shot but now might be a multi-chapter fic and I, for one, could not be more excited and hopeful that it continues! In this story, Grace and Sarah are hooking up FPO (for pleasure only for you plebeians out there) and now Grace is wanting something more and Sarah keeps slipping through her fingers. It’s a bit angsty and rough on the little robot’s heart but it’s also a great build up to what could be a rough and tumble ride into love or could blow up spectacularly in their faces. Who knows!? And isn’t that half the fun?

Great lines: What should she tell Mamrie? Perhaps ‘I hate Sarah’. But maybe ‘I’m in love with Sarah’ is closer to the truth. Neither of them is a lie, but Grace doesn’t think either of them is exactly truthful either.

Additional thoughts: 

Cat yotoobfiction is on Chapter 7 of Love and Evasive Action and the majestic pussy princess is churning out chapters daily at this point and the story just keeps developing - this latest chapter we discover a teeny tiny small peek into just why Grace has run off to London and there is some cute Hartbig snuggling on a magical heated couch and really, it’s Cat, I know you bitches lovely humans are already reading this thing. (Feel free to ship me with the fairy tale coat if you like. I heard the blue scarf was moving in on my territory and I will absolutely unravel them!)

El iloveyouinchinese finished up Of Virtue and Vice with a beautiful last chapter and epilogue and if you haven’t been reading along with this fic, now is your chance for a wonderful binge of Hartbig feels.

And that’s all folks! Hope you are having an okay time in life. Remember that your version of personal success doesn’t have to look the same as anyone else’s. Focus on what makes you happy, not what you think you should be doing to be perceived well. You give yourself a better shot at some version of actual happiness and joy that way!

Analysis Time! Flame Princess, her role then and now

I’m still working on the Lemongrab one (goddamn it’s a bit of work!), but this is just something I’d like to talk about for a second. 

Recently there was a person who said this on confessingadventuretime:

I am aware that a lot of people outright hated the character when she was first introduced, and with good reason. Whether you thought Flame Princess was adorable or not when she first appeared in ‘Incendium’, there’s no denying that introducing a new character for the sole purpose of becoming the protagonist’s love interest is not good writing. Even so, it there’s a chance at saving the character.

A good writer must ensure that this character is entertaining enough, with a distinctive personality and onscreen presence, to hold their own episode. Luckily, they managed to do just that with Flame Princess. 

Though it took them a while. 

I’ve read a lot of reviews of 'Incendium’ written years ago, after the episode first came out. Without going into too much detail, I’ll just say that a vast majority of these reviews were dedicated to criticism, either of Finn’s behavior or this mysterious new love interest shoehorned into the show, completely missing the symbolism and parallels between PB and FP packed into eleven minutes. Little did anyone know that it’s kinda hard to have the plot that 'Incendium’ had and dedicate enough time to giving this new love interest any grounded personality. 

That’s what 'Hot to the Touch’ was for. 

'Hot to the Touch’ (which, coupled with 'Incendium’, is Rebecca Sugar’s all-around best episode in my opinion) did a fine job of doing all the things I listed a newly-introduced love interest must have. 

It made Flame Princess entertaining to watch, and interesting seeing how naive she was about the world around her, giving us subtle hints that she was in that lantern for a really long time. And she also has a very distinctive (albeit slightly overused) explosive personality and onscreen presence that has this very fiery vibe to it; you, or at least I, can’t take my eyes off the screen whenever FP is on. Think of it like Lemongrab, and how every episode he’s in after 'Too Young’ has this very unsettling vibe to it ('Mystery Dungeon’ aside). 

Even with all that, there’s still no denying that Flame Princess’s primary (and for a while only) role was to be Finn’s love interest, and this continues on through 'Burning Low’ and 'Ignition Point’. 

But 'Burning Low’ wasn’t about Flame Princess. Rather, it was more focused on Finn’s relationship with Bubblegum, a brief hint at FP’s backstory, and to give us probably the most memorable and powerful line in the entire episode, if not the whole show: “Responsibility demands sacrifice." 

'Ignition Point’ was just that, the ignition point to Flame Princess’s path to becoming good. So far this is my only real piece of criticism I have with FP’s character arc, how they just kinda drop the whole "born evil, but could be made good” thing after 'Vault of Bones’. We’re given an uneasy climax to the episode as the princess relishes in killing the skeletons, who passes it off as “destroying only evil stuff”, but after that…nothing. Maybe it will come back in the future, now that she’s king. Which brings me to my last point of this little post: her future. 

The confession from the beginning worries that the writers will just forget about Flame Princess completely now that her arc appears to be “done” with Finn and she’s with Cinnamon Bun. 

Well first off, and I’m quoting the writers here, it's platonic love.You know, the love you share with your best friends? Your siblings? That kind of love. 

But that aside, there’s so much they can do with Flame Princess and still do with Finn. As for her role as a king, we’ve already had an episode where Flame Princess had to deal with an attempted coup set up by her father, and at the end Cinnamon Bun makes the Fire People realize that a ruler doesn’t need to be powerful to be a good leader, but have a strong heart and close friends. However, 'The Red Throne’ was greatly hindered by Finn. I feel this would have been a much stronger episode if it just focused on the coup and Flame Princess’s relationship with her people. I get the point was to show that Cinnamon Bun is everything that Finn is not, but to nail the whole thing about good leaders on in the literal last minute just makes it feel empty without there being any buildup. 

Another criticism people have of Flame Princess’s character even today is that everything she is now is because of Finn, and that’s true. But that’s also kinda the point. If it weren’t for Finn, she would have never met Cinnamon Bun, or became the new Flame Queen. 'The Red Throne’ was supposed to show us that she doesn’t need Finn anymore. 

Besides, it’s not like this isn’t an easy fix. Remember early Princess Bubblegum? Her only role in the series was to be Finn’s love interest, act as a plot device or a red herring. We were given a bit more in 'What Was Missing’ and throughout Season 4, but ever since 'The Suitor’ she’s completely been her own character.

However, there are more stories they can do with Flame Princess as she matures into a strong leader. Just to list a few:

-Doubts about her ability to change the Fire People

-Repercussions of total honesty

-Return of Me-Mow, mayhaps? 

-Building relationships with other kingdoms

-Showing Ooo that it doesn’t need to be afraid of the Fire Kingdom

And as I’ve said, there’s still more they can do with her and Finn’s relationship. Personally, I’d love to see the two of them bury the hatchet of their old relationship and become good friends. And apparently we’re getting an episode for just that.

'Jake the Brick’ is an upcoming episode that will finally deal with the whole “Baby Lich” situation, and Flame Princess will somehow get involved. 

Very interested in seeing where that’s going. 

And even with all that guys, if you still think Flame Princess is a weak character and her shoehorning into the show was unforgivable, at least look at it this way: 

'Adventure Time’ did it miles better than any attempt MLP has ever made with a shoehorned love interest (though that’s hardly saying much).

But that’s all I got. I hope you guys know where I’m going with this. Lemongrab analysis is coming up hopefully by the end of the week. 

Peace!

Tokusatsu 101: Kamen Rider Memes (Part 4)

Meme #10

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!/SUBARASHII!

Point of Origin: Kamen Rider OOO

Kamen Rider OOO was one part of the 40th anniversary celebration of the franchise (the other part was Fourze), featuring a hero who uses the mystical and natural powers of animals in the form of coins called Core Medals. The series currently holds the record for most Rider forms with over 129 total possible forms for the main hero!

This cheerful fellow is Kousei Kougami, the President of the Kougami Foundation, a corporation that is researching alternative energy and mystical artifacts among other things. They help the hero but also stay neutral as they have their own agendas.

Mr. Kougami is…a bit out there, he loves the beginning of things seeing them as beautiful and loves to make birthday cakes, so much so his office sits on top of a bakery. (Hence some fans nickname him “Japanese Cake Boss”)

Whenever something new happens with OOO or the evil Greeed he exclaims: “HAPPY BIRTHDAY!” and he is overly enthusiastic and excitable. When things go his way or please him, he loudly proclaims that this is “SUBARASHII!” (Splendid!) This makes him a fun character as you never know what to expect from him and the delightfully hammy acting and mugging of Takashi Ukaji really sells it.

Uses: Simply a way to wish a Rider fan, actor, producer or writer a Happy Birthday. When something excites you. When you see a birthday cake in a Kamen Rider Series.

Also fun fact, the song “Happy Birthday to You” is now in a legal battle to enter the public domain. So if you wish to do a silly video impersonating Kougami singing it, soon you may not have to pay royalties to the guy who wrote it… despite the fact he’s been dead for over 100 years.

Starfish-Hitler

Source: Kamen Rider X

There are moments in Japanese TV that make you say: “What in God’s name am I watching?” This is one of them and arguably the most infamous enemy in Kamen Rider. Even some non-Rider fans know of this due to how bizarre it is.

Kamen Rider X was the 3rd series and had an aquatic Rider who was the first to have an on-board weapons system in the belt.

After failing to defeat Kamen Rider X with their Greek Myth themed cyborgs, the Government of Darkness aka G.O.D. decided to up the ante. They created cyborgs made from what I can only assume to be the bio-matter of animals and infamous figures in history to try to do in the swashbuckling hero. At some point after failing a few times with stuff like Ant Capone, they decided to fuse a Starfish’s cells… with Adolf Hitler’s DNA. Thus Starfish Hitler was born!

Uses: To showcase that tokusatsu goes to weird places that even the fans cannot explain. To show how lovingly campy and goofy the Showa Era could get (despite X being one of the darker series in the franchise). A logic breaker. Showcase how overused and stock a villain type the Nazis are in fictional media and how silly this can get if not used properly in writing stories.

Catchphrases/Belt Sounds

Source: The Heisei Era Series

So many quotes from Riders and belts, so little time…

Insert Here:

Yes Rider fans! I want you to be a participant in this one to show the newcomers!

I’ll Start!

“DAI KAIGAN! OMEGA DRIVE!” (Ghost Driver-Kamen Rider Ghost)

The life you have taken…please return it to God!” (Kamen Rider Ixa -Kamen Rider Kiva)

“Rocket! Drill! LIMIT BREAK!” (Fourze Driver-Kamen Rider Fourze)

“Despair awaits you at the finish line…” (Kamen Rider Accel - Kamen RIder Double)

Edit: X is the 3rd series not 5th. Too much Turkey causes memory loss, don’t eat it.

I always feel like i never watch enough movies as it is, and it’s true… i always re-watch the same shows and movies. These are my favorite picks of 2015. 

A Most Violent Year was a slow burner with beautiful shots and 80′s era-aesthetics.. Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac work so well together, and this film was/is so under-appreciated because the lead is an actual good guy, throughout the whole film. Entertainment has been stuck on rooting for the bad guys that you almost find yourself looking to see where Isaac’s character was going to go wrong. Definitely worth watching for the last scene and Isaac’s quote in the dinner table scene.

Mommy already had me from the moment I finished previous Dolan films. I didn’t know what to expect when i went, and was even more confused when the theater attendant said the way the movie was shot was intentional and would soon make sense… it was so worth it. I think everyone I follow agrees that there’s absolutely no one who can do what Dolan does. It’s frustrating as hell to know how young he is and the ability he has to write so deeply about a variety of things. He’s got an eye for cinematography, and ear for fucking fantastic music, and a mind that writes like no other. I left that theater in awe and goosebump-ridden from the last scene/use of music.

The Hateful Eight was not high on my list of movies to watch in 2015. I don’t like Westerns, Django was a let down, and i’ve kind of gotten bored of Tarantino due to all the infatuation on this website tbh. I mean it’s a lot, but I understand it for the most part. Watching this was such an experience.. the fucking music oh my god. So good, and I never give much thought in QT’s films about much of his music even though some have become iconic. It was so perfectly fitting and new, I was living for it. Every frame every second was so well thought out and had the most beautiful use of landscape (first part). The story/characters were incredible and sooo Tarantino like in the best way. I think I was deprived of something signature of his and I finally got it. My only problem was the overuse of the N word which was highly unnecessary and really uncomfortable to hear.

It Follows popped up in an article on my homepage saying it’s the scariest movie that’s come in the last couple of years. Read the synopsis… nope I thought I was gonna pass it up and move on. Kept seeing articles on it and gave in. Went to a screening with the director and writers about a week later and had really low hopes. I was seated in a full house with incredible sound and let me tell you I almost shat my pants a couple of times. If you’ve seen it, you already know hands fucking down the door/hall scene is fucking SCARY. I felt like my soul left my body when I watched it. For a newcomer, this movie is flawless. So rich in color, incredible use of landscape which was in Detroit, but was also switched from a rustic abandoned setting to a suburban neighborhood. It keeps you on edge and has you wondering what the fuck is going on. The most incredible thing to come out of this was the score by Disasterpeace. The whole soundtrack is a horror music dream. It’s got obvious Carpenter themes but so original it’s something I listen to ALL the time. I’m still obsessed with this movie, I think I always will be.

A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night came outta left field and will always be an under-appreciated favorite. Black and white works so beautifully esp. when it’s a vampire film set in modern times. Music is definitely key and is to be listened to whenever, because it’s just that great. Women vampires should really be a thing, just not the Twilight kind.

Lost River, you already know. If you’ve been following me forever you know my deep struggles with this movie and how much i begged and pleaded to watch it. NWR is a huge love of mine and hearing that Ryan Gosling (his bf) was making a film, I knew it was going to have some nwr bits. Not only were websites saying it was like NWR, but also compared it to Lynch, Korine, and Noé.. the fucking best at surrealist/auteur film makers. It was bashed and hated on over and over and I knew it was going to be good. It had me so fucking in love when I finally did get around to it. It’s a simple, simple story with grim fairytale themes. Neon colors, Ben’s dancing, the town’s settings, the relationship between Ian and Saoirse’s character.. I want to live in that movie forever. I’ve read everything about it, yet there isn’t much, It’s still such a weird film and something no one has talked about since and I live for it. It’s the movie I would have made if I was ever given the chance.

Ex Machina was/is so clean and crisp it’s like breathing new air or s/t. Sounds cheesy, I know. But JC made such a fantastic role for Alicia and knocked it out of the park in terms of how the AI looked. So stunning, esp. in close up shots. The film has you rooting for one person and in a matter of a scene it changes completely. You know it’s good when I have yet to fully realize Alicia isn’t that AI from the movie.. I will always see her as one.

The Revenant fed my crops, gave me food, and nurtured my soul in terms of cinematography. Emmanuel gave me goosebumps and had me saying wow repeatedly under my breath a couple of times. I’ve only ever felt like that when I saw Children Of Men which is also his work. It’s undeniable he’s created the best shots of our time. His work with Alejandro is only proof of that. 2 hours of jaw dropping scenery was enough, but Leo and Tom are a fucking force together. Leo will never seize to amaze me. He’s become a meme, but in reality we all know his work is out of this world and commitment is something that isn’t seen much anymore in Hollywood. You always think he’s outdone himself with the last role, but he keeps fucking your shit up. He deserves the award, he deserves it all.

The Lobster had the weirdest description, but on the other hand it was the Dogtooth guy so why are acting surprised? It was exactly as described and more. I laughed my fucking ass off along with the whole theater which had a capacity of 600 ppl. Ben Whishaw and John C. Reilly are the best comical bit and so good together despite such a random pair. I don’t know what to say without spoiling it. It’s my favorite film of the year and has that uncomfortable Lanthimos scene(s) which is worth watching for let alone.

to wrap it up… i’m always a slut for cinematography and original scores, bye!

Word Count: 1,828

Warnings: angst, hate on social media, swearing.

Summary: The Reader has been really upset with the amount she’s received on social media with her relationship with Jensen. Therefore, Jensen tries everything that he possibly can to make her happy.

Pair: [Jensen x Reader]

Original Request: Ok. Can I request a oneshot where the reader is dating Jensen and she’s upset by the hate she gets from the fandom and he comforts her and hugs her when she cries? Kinda cliché, I know. But I love your writing style and wanna see what you come up with!

Author’s Note: So, I’m sure a lot of people react to cyber bullying differently, but I wanted to be able to use how I sometimes would deal with hate on social media, as well as I think I would have reacted in this kind of situation.

Please, please, please request things!

              You stared blankly at the brightened screen in front of you, the beam from your laptop the only source of light in your darkened bedroom. You wrapped the comforter of your bed tightly around your frame, sniffling quietly at the flooding comments of your Tumblr ask. You had known that having a relationship with Jensen that there will surely be hate sent to you through social media, but you never believed that it would affect you this greatly.

              The words inflicted your wellbeing more than you could have ever thought possible. You always told yourself you could just brush it off your shoulders as if it was simply specks of dirt. But the dirt seemed to embed into flesh, boring into your pores until it was a part of your body. Each hateful remark felt like it was etched across your body, everyone reading it as if it was a persuasive essay; persuasive in the sense to make everyone hate you. To make everyone loathe you. To make even yourself hate you.

              Jensen knew of the social media issue, telling you that they were simply jealous and you had no reason to be upset over it. None of the words they wrote were true. They were, and you quote, “Jealous pricks. They have nothing on you, sweetheart.”

              At first, you had believed him, when the remarks were just rude remarks of your appearance; but then the tides shifted, and they began to bring your family and friends into the matter. The snide insults and demands began to affect your daily life. You found yourself checking social media more and more, even though Jensen had told you to stay away at all costs. You wanted to, you truly did, but the knowledge of people saying rude things about your loved ones made you infuriated. You desired nothing more than to fight back, but you knew it would just cause a bigger implosion of conflict in the end, and Jensen assured you that it was not worth getting worked up over it.

              While you were supposed to be getting ready to leave for another convention, you instead focused all your attention on all aspects of social media: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr. You found yourself searching your name through the tags, as if you were addicted to the knowledge of what people were saying online about you. No matter how hard you tried to focus yourself on other things online, you always found yourself on hateful accounts and tags. No matter how hard you tried to draw yourself away from that kind of environment, you always found yourself back.

              “Y/N? Hey, you ready?” You heard Jensen’s voice echo throughout the hallway of your shared home. You flicked your eyes onto the doorway right when he turned the doorknob, pushing the door opened. Jensen sighed quietly at the sight of your composure, a frown embedding into his features as he shuffled over to his side of the bed. He set his weight down onto the mattress, scooting himself closer to you. Jensen reached a hand out, cautiously closing the laptop and setting it to the side. He studied you intently, his frown seeming to deepen as he watched your features remain the same, empty expression.

              Jensen didn’t bother asking what was troubling you, he already knew. A string of air fell passed his lips, his arm draping across your shoulders and reeling you closer to his chest. You would normally say your behavior was normal and that nothing was wrong, you were simply lost in thought. But you knew that Jensen was smart enough not to believe your overused excuse, therefore, you allowed your body to melt into his frame.

              The pads of his fingers began to draw small, geometric shapes onto the upper part of your arm in hopes of comforting you, his chin resting on top of your head. He despised seeing you like this, knowing that there really wasn’t much for him to do. He had mentioned the amount of hate at conventions before, but his attempts seemed to make the attacks worse. People began to claim that you had been demanding him to tell off the fans for hating on you. It was somehow always your fault. You were always the villain in the story.

              “C’mon, babe,” he mumbled into your hair, puckering his lips to kiss the crown of your head. “We don’t want to miss our flight.”

              Though your expression remained emotionless, you slowly nodded your head. Jensen dipped his head down to be at eyelevel with you, a sorrowful smile playing on his lips. He leaned in and pressed a sloppy kiss to your lips, pulling back only seconds after. He scooted himself off the bed, reaching his hand out towards you. You peered up, locking eyes with his momentarily before looking at his hand. You softly smiled at him, accepting his gesture by resting the palm of your hand into his. Jensen clutched his hand over yours, aiding you off the bed.

              Your bare feet brushed up against the carpeting as you stood, your eyes slowly trailing up to lock with Jensen’s. He smiled sadly at you, dipping his head down to press a gentle kiss to your forehead.

***

              You arrived at the convention only just in time for Jensen’s panel to start. You stood backstage alongside Genevieve, who was scheduled for a panel with Jared later in the day.

              You watched Jensen interact with the audience on stage; normally his comfortableness nowadays at panels made you extremely joyful, but today you seemed lost in thought. Some of the messages still ached in the back of your mind, no matter how hard you had pushed it down, it always seemed to resurface.

              You felt an elbow nudge into your side, your eyes blinking a few times to refocus. You turned your head, locking eyes with a smiling Genevieve. Her smile was wide and eyes sparkling, a glint of secrecy reflecting in her irises.

              “Soooooo,” she whispered, stretching out the word for effect. “Jensen told me this morning.”

              You released a breathy laugh from your chest, your head bowing and chin resting on your collarbone. “Did he now?” you inquired, picking your head back up.

              “Yes. Yes, he did.” Genevieve bit her bottom lip, her knees bouncing up and down slightly. “I’m so excited for you guys!”

              You smiled softly, nodding curtly at her once. “Thank you.”

              Genevieve frowned slightly at you, her head cocking to the side. “C’mon, Y/N! I was expecting hugs and cheerfulness! Honey, you’re having a baby. Get excited!”

              “No, no, I am excited… I am… it’s just…” you trailed off, sighing quietly. “Somehow, someone found out that I was pregnant… and we’ve only told close friends and family, and they anonymously messaged me on Tumblr saying how terrible of a mother I’m going to be… how fucked the child is to have a mother like me… how…” You couldn’t finish the statement before a small sob erupted passed your lips, causing a few faces to look your way. You covered your hand over your mouth, squeezing your eyes shut in hopes of suppressing your threatening tears.

              “Oh, Y/N,” Genevieve, whispered, a frown embedding into her expression. She sidestepped to be in front of you, grasping her hands on top of your shoulders. “That’s not true. Whatsoever. You understand me?”

              “What if-”

              “No. You’re going to be an amazing mother. You and Jensen are going to have a baby, Y/N… don’t let some jealous jerk rain over that. This is exciting!”

              “I-I know,” you murmured, clearing your throat quietly. A small tear trickled down your cheek, Genevieve, immediately wiping it away with the pad of her thumb.

              “So don’t let a douchebag on the internet ruin that for you guys. Jensen is honestly so excited… when he told me, he was smiling like an idiot. You should be, too!”

              You nodded in agreement, sniffling quietly. “I know. I know.”

              Genevieve opened her mouth to speak, but you were tapped on the shoulder. Both of you turned to see one of the security guards, him asking that you come on stage, for Jensen had requested you. You furrowed your eyebrows at him, but complied with his request. You bid Genevieve a quick goodbye before pointing to your face, a silent question of whether or not your makeup looked okay. Genevieve gave you a thumbs-up, a small smile on her lips as she waved bye to you.

              The security guard ushered you on stage with his hand resting on the small of your back. You glanced around at the crowd before directing your attention onto Jensen, his smile seeming to grow wider at the sight of you. The crowd cheered at your presence, you waving nervously at them.

              The guard bid Jensen a small nod before leaving the stage.

              “What’s this about?” you inquired in a low voice.

              “I thought we should tell them together,” he replied back in a low whisper.

              Before you were able to speak, he turned back to the crowd, his hand reaching blindly for yours. You intertwined your fingers with his, your thumb slowly massaging small circles into his skin.

              “Everyone,” Jensen began into the microphone, the room falling silent in anticipation on what he was going to say. He peered down at, his smile never phasing. “We’re having a baby.” His eyes never left yours. The corners of your lips twitched into a soft smile, the crowd cheering at the news.

***

              You later found yourself back on social media, to your dismay. With the news spreading throughout the fandom of your pregnancy, you feared that the rest of the fans would react the same way a few others had. But to your surprise, you received countless supportive messages of the pregnancy, as well as your relationship with Jensen. You smiled widely down at your phone screen as tapped away on the keyboard to try to reply to as many messages as you possibly could.

              “Well, someone looks happy,” Jensen commented, stepping through the doorway of the bathroom and into the bedroom of your hotel room, a towel wrapped around his muscular form due to him just getting out of the shower.

              “Well, that’s because I am,” you replied, sitting up from your previous position, plopping your hands into your lap.

              “Good. I like it when you’re happy.” Jensen traipsed over towards you, pressing a soft kiss to your temple. “And, Y/N? I don’t want you to be upset about what the douchebags on social media say anymore, okay? I know it gets to you… I saw the messages. It breaks my heart to have to read them… especially seeing how they affect you so greatly. But-” Jensen sat on the edge of the bed, reaching into your lap to clutch onto your hands. “They have nothing on us, darlin’.”

              “Damn right, they don’t,” you agreed, leaning over to press a sloppy kiss onto his lips.

Master list.

Lucy Heatfilia

It’s obvious to anyone that’s up to date with the Fairy Tail manga that Lucy has changed a great deal. For one, Lucy’s mannerisms and personality have changed drastically:

But aside from that, are we really aware of just how much she has changed?

With that question in mind I began to analyse x792 Lucy and I noticed something.

Don’t see it? Here, let me point it out to you:

Along with her abandoning her previous outfits, Lucy has gotten rid of her Fleuve d’étoiles. Something Virgo had given her in order preserve her magic power.

“Using stellar spirit magic several times on a row completely depletes my magic. I see… So that’s why Virgo… Thank you. The concern of my stellar spirits, I’ll treasure it!!” - Lucy Heartfilia, Fairy Tail Chapter 184 The River of Stars for the Sake of Pride

As we have slowly discovered throughout the series, celestial magic is an extremely intricate magic and overuse in a short period of time used to wear Lucy out. Hence, Virgo giving Lucy this special whip. It gave us some insight into just how much Lucy’s spirits worry about her.

Before I continue, I’d like you to take these two quotes from Virgo into consideration.

“To open two gates at once… It must be truly taxing…” - Virgo, Fairy Tail Chapter 383 Surfing Lucy

“Princess… You mustn’t!!! That will… The princess’s body cannot handle it!!!” -Virgo, Fairy Tail Chapter 383 Surfing Lucy

Virgo seems to think Lucy is incapable of multiple summons. She worries for Lucy’s wellbeing in these two instances.

-

About a day ago I asked you guys for photos or references from the most recent arcs with Lucy using or wearing her whip. @nawcelest told me about this in Chapter 442:

But where did it come from? Because if you look at this:

There is clearly no whip. This hints that Lucy may have learnt another form of magic. This is likely and expected of her after Mashima’s fifth manga omake, Mira-Sensei’s Transforming Magic Class.

Another time she uses her whip, pointed out by @evilkitten3 (whilst in secret valentine mode), is in her Taurus Star Dress (Chapter 430 Operation Purification):

Making an educated guess, based off of Lucy’s outfit before donning the Star Dress, we can say that Lucy did not have the whip to begin with. Another hint that she has a new magic.

Now for my theory!

Before the one year time skip, Lucy paired her fleuve d’étoiles with nearly every outfit she wore. Now, after undergoing major personality and magical changes, Lucy doesn’t wear her whip. Additionally, she is only seen using it twice.

Personally, I see Lucy’s whip as a symbol. A symbol of her strength, the less she used it the stronger she was. Then Virgo said this with a smug look on her face.

“Not only can she now use a bit of my magic, her own magical power has increased.” - Virgo, Fairy Tail Chapter 427 The Heated Underground Battle

Using a Star Dress would be no small feat and the fact that Virgo, little miss worry wort, says something like this with absolutely no worry for Lucy confirms what I believe. For me, at least.

Lucy is so much stronger than she was in x791. I don’t know if this will come up later or if it will play a role in the unavoidable three way battle, but I’m certain that it means something.

The fact that Lucy does not use her whip as religiously as she once did, the smug expression on Virgo’s face and the possibility that Lucy has learned new magic has my head spinning.

Lucy has changed so much more than we, actually, I initially realised. It just goes to show how much losing what you love can affect you.

Argh, it’s all over the place :( This made so much more sense in my head XD but anyway, I hope at least some of it made sense.

anonymous asked:

how did you become such a good writer? like i do some writing but to me its really bland and boring. do you have any advice? xx

i would say first of all; every writer/artist/creator ever struggles with feeling like their work is inadequate. it’s human nature and it’s normal to feel insecure about your craft. that being said, here’s some random tips that may or may not be helpful:

  1. write allllllllll the time. i’m constantly jotting things down on the backs of school work sheets and in notebook headings and on my hands/arms and in my notes on my phone if an idea hits me (i tend to write a lot of lyrics down from songs i’m listening to because i find most often they spark good ideas for me). sometimes, when you look back on things, they won’t make sense (i.e. in my phone, i literally have a note that just says “yellow loofa hanging in the shower”) but every once in a while, an idea will hit and literally consume you until you write it. and if you succumb it and let it consume you, i guarantee whatever you write will be good.
  2. BODY LANGUAGE IS KEY!!!! i can’t stress this enough because there’s sooo much you can have your characters say without “saying it”. here are some resources bc this is v v important: [this] & [this] & [this] & [this]
  3. [synonyms for the word “said”] - i always have this open while i’m writing
  4. a bunch of really good synonyms for overused words [here] & [here]
  5. jot down little tidbits of dialogue you hear through out the day while you’re walking home from school or through the mall or on the radio, etc. as they might prove to be good story starters. i gave an example [here]. 
  6. writer’s block is the fear of writing something horrible. so what if you write something bad? in fact, you’re human, okay? you’re guaranteed to write something bad. for every five bad pieces you write, there will be one good one. so do it. just WRITE. 
  7. for the love of hot chocolate, please, please, please use proper grammar. whenever i click to read something that a) isn’t formatted into paragraphs & is just one long blob of words, b) doesn’t use quotation marks, c) doesn’t have correct punctuation: i immediately exit out of it. remember TIP TOP for times to start a new paragraph: time place topic person
  8. don’t delete your stuff. instead, copy and paste/duplicate it and revise it in another document. 
  9. also, the quote below (rebloggable source: x)

and the best piece of writing advice i’ve ever received? WRITE LIKE NO ONE WILL SEE YOUR FIRST DRAFT. i don’t know why but getting all of your con-jumbled thoughts and bits of pieces of the plot out on paper (or a word document) with this mentality takes so much pressure off of you. now… GO WRITE LIL BUB, I’M SENDING GOOD VIBES YOUR WAY!!!

Everything you wanted to know about Shulk that SSB won't tell you

Dean x Reader One Shot

Title: The Zoo

Summary: Imagine falling in love with Dean

Word Count: 2,211

“Can I tell you something?”

You turned over to Dean, looked into his dead, tired eyes, and smiled when you saw the small part of his eyebrow that was twitching; he was dehydrated, typical.  You should get him a banana.

“Depends,” you looked back up at the sky and shrugged, feeling your shoulders rub against the blanket beneath you, trying not to be uncomfortable from the hard cement of the roof. It was your idea to come up here, you hadn’t seen the stars in ages and Dean was the only one awake; you supposed you could have gone alone, could have thrown this blanket out onto the ground and laid there yourself, but where’s the fun in looking at the stars if you can’t revel in them with some other soul?  “If it’s a spoiler of any kind, you’d best keep your mouth shut.”
