Hi hello so everyone seems to absolutely rock beards and I was wondering how'd you look like with one?? Maybe just a test, I'm just super curious.

How about a slightly overly enthusiastic Muggle Studies Professor that you’ve never asked for?

MSP: STUDENTS. I am here to show you that Muggle technology is-


MSP: Today I present to you a Muggle device for communication…

MSP: I shall now proceed to showing you how to turn this apparatus on. Watch closely.

MSP: Simple, see?

MSP: But be careful! The Samsounge mechanism can be quite dangerous, prone to explosion and often used as a weapon in the Muggle world. If anyone wants to take a closer look?

Bonus:

MSP really likes Arthur Weasley’s collection of plugs.

i’m absolute rubbish at makeup but i had fun

So I know that it's pretty much unacceptable to compare anybody to food, especially something like skin color. However, what would be a better alternative to explain/describe something like that? Any thoughts?

A lot of this is a matter of preference, but I personally subscribe to the straight-forward approach. If the color of the character’s skin is relevant to the story, then expressly say that character is dark-skinned or light-skinned or some other variety. You can have that character make a reference to it or other characters. Maybe make a reference to their background or their family’s background. Think about it as describing one of your friends to someone who doesn’t really know them. You probably wouldn’t say your friend had skin like dark chocolate or skin like fresh cream. Or skin like a caramel frappucino. Please never compare your friends to frappucinos. 

It’s another characteristic like height. You just say a character is tall or taller compared to another character. You don’t say “Jason was tall like a spear of bamboo.” If you do, you might want to rethink that.

His name was Simon.

MSP: I used to live in this village in southern England with my family - all “pureblood and proud” not a single drop of muggle blood in our veins - complete and utter rubbish, all of it, of course, caused mostly by their pure inability to face the fact that my grandmother had a child from a muggle man. I swear, you could run around shouting Voldemort’s name but as soon as you mentioned the poor man? *laughs* Locked in your room for the rest of the day.

MSP: One summer a muggle family moved into an old house near my family’s mansion - you can imagine my parent’s reaction. I was not to come anywhere near the muggle boy-

MSP: Surely, it was all a big secret. We would meet in the forest behind the mansion, and he would beg me to show some of my “magic tricks” - I could do a bit of wandless magic, harmless stuff, nothing a ministry charm could trace. In return he would show me his muggle things - which, frankly, were as much of a nuisance to me as my magic was to him. 

MSP: We became…close.

MSP: Perhaps, a bit too close.

MSP: It was all fun and games and we felt invincible.

MSP: Until one day we were too careless and..the other boys, our neighbors they-

MSP: …about everything.

MSP: To say that my Father was livid when the news of his “dirty little traitor of a son” reached him would be a bit of an understatement. I begged him to leave my friend alone, I swore I would never see him again, but my Father he…wouldn’t hear any of it. He told me that wouldn’t be needed.

That he would take care of it.

I learned enough to know exactly what he was going to do when he stormed out of the house.

And I…

MSP: Everything happened so fast. I saw it all go wrong.

MSP: My Father’s anger made his spell unsteady and it clashed…with something inside my friend’s mind. It fought back. I’ve learned later how a conscious desire to remember someone strong enough could repel memory charms but back then all I could do was stand and watch as panic in his eyes melted into confusion. And then…blank nothingness.

MSP: My Father dragged me out of the house and I was sent back to Hogwarts immediately for the rest of that summer. I had no contact with anyone for the entire school year and when I got back home - the muggle family was gone.

MSP: I spent two months trying to find him until eventually I got a trace of his mother. She moved into another town and lived all by herself. She told me everything…how she started slowly losing her son. He could remember bits, she said, sometimes he would become manic about this particular idea that there was more to this world than we could see and that someone was going to take it from him. Then he became paranoid. Stopped eating. He…wanted to see me, she said. He sometimes described me even though he couldn’t remember my name.

MSP: She gave me an address and I went to see him. It was a muggle center for mental health, a cold place with white walls. But he was there. Thin as a stick, little of the life left in him - all in his feverishly burning eyes.


MSP: He asked me if I could show him a magic trick…

MSP: His name was Simon.

You mentioned vampire scientist. You know what else they could be? Historians. Think about it. Who better to write and share history -- as well as account on some of the accuracy -- than someone who was alive during that time, and can understand the context?

Oh my god, someone get me a bitchy vampire historian who not only gives you the context but makes side notes about what a dick Caesar was and could Shakespeare just stop laughing at his own jokes for like thirty seconds.

Harry is Louis's baby and nothing will convince me otherwise

I’M SO- LET’S TALK ABOUT THAT TOO

This is a mixture of over times. Oh and I would like to note, when Larry has images from apparently only 2010-2012, does that matter? Love isn’t based on just time, it’s deeper than that.

Good lord I found my first (and thankfully last) Gary Stu character from when I was 9 or so, his name was Bob Ledgedive and his father was a famous racecar driver, his mother/relatives died from *tragic filler* disease, and an evil lord who killed his father was after him. He could telepathically "convince" people and implant memories, as well as other special powers, and his friends were totally alright with this. They had a secret treehouse. They were also all penguins.

That last sentence was a plot twist I didn’t see coming.

The Mary-Sue Show: a tv show that's not like other tv shows about a girl who's not like other girls. Watch as she deals with her hot, guitar playing crush, extremely rich but absent parents, teachers that don't care (except maybe one), a boss at a job she doesn't actually need, and a supportive and kind best friend that never cares or understands her. All this while dealing with being slightly clumsy at times.

I feel like you just described a Disney channel show.

anonymous asked:

How would you write a POC character? Do you just say "she was black?" Do you do that ridiculous food-color (caramel/nutmeg/latte/chocolate) thing? I'm not a great writer, but I'm trying to improve myself. What isn't offensive?

Do not do the food thing. For the love of God or any higher power or higher anything, do not do the food thing. 

Here are some posts on this:

You know what would be fun? Writing a story from the point of view of the 'other girls' in a Mary Sue story. Like, they're just trying to hang out with their boyfriends and someone just snorts 'sluts' really obviously. They love cheerleading for the fun of it and get accused of only doing it for boy's attention... by the Mary Sue who's bragging about how great at video games she is to impress her love interest. They wear high heels and try to avoid getting tripped by the Sue's conversed feet.

I would read it.

Mary Sue Fact of the Day: There are not enough lesbian Sues. There are lots of gay Stus, but an altogether insufficient number of hilariously poorly-written perfect lesbians. PETITION FOR MORE LESBIAN SUES.

I’ve only seen one or two, so I’m signing this petition.
