and this one is the awesomest

The whole name thing feels like something I’d do when I was a teen and I feel like it’s the sign of an insecure author or at least an author who doesn’t know what the fuck they’re doing while trying to create the bestest and awesomest character. 

To me it indicates that the character they’ve made isn’t really a character, but more of a placeholder for all the epic things that the character is supposed to be. But instead of increasing the “coolness factor”, both the character and the names become empty as the names and titles pile up.

If you want a character to be distinctive and epic, give them one name, and one title. Make that name and that title mean something, and I don’t mean linguistically, but in-universe.

The point of one name+one title is to show who this person is really (name) and what they mean to the world (title).

Harry Potter is The Boy Who Lived.

Lillian Gordiana/Celaena Sardothien/Elentya/Alien Assripper Whatshertits is Adarlan’s Assassin/Fireheart/Chosen of Mala/Queen Who Was Promised/Lightbringer/Queen of Everything and Everyone Forever/Rowan’s sentient dickwarmer.

Alright, I may have overdone that, but see my point? By giving someone so many different names and titles, they all become indistinct and level each other out. If they’re all equally badass and epic, none of them stand out. The character becomes just a thing that is supposed to be all of this and that but ends up being none of this and that. The names and titles mean nothing because there are simply too many and they all mean and indicate different things. 

One name. One title. 

And you got yourself a proper chosen one. 

(Unless you know what you’re doing and/or the many titles/names is a plot point, of course.)

I also want to add that giving your characters epic titles works best AFTER they’ve done something epic that’s worthy of the title. Giving your precious teenage “Chosen One” a dozen different cool titles before they’ve even done anything to earn them cheapens the titles.

Where'd ya find that selfie of me? Aren't I the most charming leg you've ever seen? XD Anyways, I'm here, I'm queer and I brought along some headcanonsssssss. So, I was listening to "Dancing away with my heart" by Lady Antebellum the other day and I thought of a superlane AU where they are the most awesomest couple of their high school but had to part and now here they are at their high school's 10 year reunion, where they get another chance at their perfect slow dance.- leggy

Oh, leggy, your countenance makes me swoon! I, of course, hacked you to see what you looked like, and was not disappointed.

But I get the vague sense (don’t know how) that you really like high school AUs?? hahahaha

I originally had said here “I don’t have much for this one, but-” and then suddenly I had much for this one:

When they were in school, Lucy’s father was the school’s coach, nicknamed “The General” because of how he ran the students like troops (whistle and all). Her sister Lois was in college and didn’t speak to her father anymore because of his controlling tendencies. Those tendencies are what broke Kara and Lucy up, inevitably. 

Kara and Lucy met in a dance class; Kara was terrible and Lucy was excellent, so Lucy offered to teach Kara some things and they fell for each other. Eventually, they’d been nominated for prom king and queen and were practicing a little for the slow dance when Lucy’s father came in and saw them, having been confused at their names being paired on the nomination list. The night of the dance, He locked Lucy in her room and told her that she wasn’t to be dating that foreigner anymore. Lucy could have snuck out the window to go to the dance, left for the same college as Kara, severed her ties with her father. But she had lost her sister and mother by this point. She couldn’t bare to lose the last family member that remained. 

She broke up with Kara by text. Kara was waiting for her on the dance floor, reading it as she was being called up to collect her crown. 

They didn’t speak to each other again.

Until, of course, the reunion. Kara was dating a nice enough boy, had become a reporter. Lucy had finally severed her connection with her father and let go of the resentment she’d felt for her sister. At the reunion, they saw each other across the room, and everything came rushing back for both. But they avoided each other anyway. Kara had a boyfriend, Lucy was happy on her own. No need to hash it out. Unfortunately, there was a reunion tradition at their school that the prom king and queen had to dance a slow dance together.

So, they successfully avoided each other until they’d suddenly been pushed together at the center of the dance floor.

They wrapped their arms easily around each other- too easily- and averted their eyes. They began silently, until Lucy said, with as much lightness as she could muster, “You’re better than I remember.”

Kara looked at Lucy, then, a bit of anger surfacing.

“Well, it’s been quite a while.”

When Lucy returned her gaze, sadness shaping her eyes, Kara softened.

“And I had a good teacher, if you recall.”

“I was a great teacher, you had two left feet when I started!”

They both chuckled, the ease of their youth returning to their bones.

Lucy continued, “And now look at you.”

Kara breath was caught in her throat for a moment, as she looked at Lucy, as Lucy looked at her.

Kara shook her head and ripped her eyes away.

“I feel like I’m in high school all over again.”

“You are,” -Kara gave her a weak glare- “But I know how you feel. Sometimes I wish I-”

Kara stopped dancing.

“Didn’t break my heart?”

Lucy couldn’t the find words and Kara couldn’t find the patience. She broke from Lucy’s arms and began walking away, already searching for her date so she could leave. But Lucy’s hand on her’s stopped her and gently pulled her back into form.

“I haven’t spoken to my father in years.”

Kara looked at Lucy with the same concerned furrow in her eyebrows Lucy remembered from when they were young. It almost made her lose her train of thought, but she persisted,

“It took a lot for me to get out from under his mindset, and I’m sorry that you were hurt during the process. I think I wish… I wish we’d met later in life.”

Kara just sighed and offered a small smile, bringing Lucy a bit closer. After a moment, a few familiar notes pulled Kara’s attention as old movement cues. 

“Oh, this is the part! Do you remember?”

“Of course.”

They move into smooth twirls and dips and moves that were too showy for an adult slow dance but just right for the king and queen of prom ten years ago. And it’s too sweet and too right for two women who don’t love each other anymore. And it’s too perfect and not enough all at once.

Then they both remember, at the same time. 

A kiss had been planned toward the end of the song. God they were corny. 

By all rights, they should have completed the dance and walked away, walked back to their separate and perfectly happy lives.

But as movements bled one into the other and the light danced around them from the same damn disco ball they’d had ten years ago, neither had strength enough to resist falling into one another.

They kissed softly, and it was enough to destroy every patch of healing they’d stitched together throughout the years.

Oh, they were ruined. Everyone around them could see the uprooting of their whole lives in action, in that moment. Roots bursting from the ground, skies shaking and demolishing the little homes they’d built painstakingly over the years. 

And yet, all they could feel was…

Lets get the obvious out of the way: Yuri on ice

Dfdfsshbdfcx okay okay:

Some japanese guy named Yuri and some russian guy named Viktor are super in love

They ice skate

Apparently Yuri is like the hottest/coolest/awesomest person ever but has shit self worth or confidence and has no idea how great he is

I think Yuri has some kind of super-cool on-ice persona but is a dork IRL?

Viktor is some kind of famous ice skating champion or smth. He……might be a has-been? Is in danger of becoming a has-been? Idk.

There’s someone named Yurio who might be a matchmaker

Is This Statement Fanon or Canon: A Quarter-Flipping Game By Me

What r physics

Skating as veiled sexual metaphors????? I think I made this one up.

Either there’s a ton of that highly-detailed glorification of the rival relationship/the experience of losing to a worthy rival that I hear is a thing in sports anime (all I know of vaguely sports anime-tangent tropes comes from like, old semi-shonen kids junk like pokemon/yugioh/dbz sorry) or like, the opposite of that

Something about pork cutlets

This is a Christmas special story that was a gift for WinchesterGranger.

goodreads / my review

Captive Prince I-II
NO HETEROSEXUAL CHARACTERS. N O N E. + asexual/demi character (the author doesn’t want to label his sexuality, though.) so complex, deals with pedophilia, slavery, rape, revenge and crap, and the second book was basically „the biggest emotional rollercoaster of my life”. my whole soul turned to jelly. re-read twice.
goodreads / my review

Made You Up
alex fights with schizophrenia every day, and sometimes she can’t figure out what’s real and what isn’t. read the freaking prologue, two pages, you’ll fall in love immediately.
goodreads / my review

All The Bright Places
i mean. i was basically sobbing for two hours before i could even finish this goddamn book. if you’re/were suicidal, it’s probably not the brightest idea, it fucking murders you.

goodreads / my review

640)When I came out, I kinda had like a coming-out week. I painted my nails with the pan flag, informed my friends about how there are hella lotta sexualities, talked about how cute women (I’m female) are, etc. At the end of the week, during gym class, me and my friend were lazing on the floor. She asked me “hey, are you pan?” And I was kinda nervous, I’d been building up for this for a week, and said “yup.” She said “nice.” It was one of the awesomest moments in my life, I felt completely accepted!
