sooo about writing ideas what about post hiatus peterick where trick gets his wisdom teeth removed and he's all high and tells Pete he's been in love with him for 10+ years like it's nothing and Pete's like hoLD UP WHAT
Pete had to drive Patrick home from the dentist’s office. Patrick was quite dazed, and he kept mumbling to himself about something, but Pete wasn’t really listening. When they got to Patrick’s house, Pete held Patrick’s hand as they walked inside. Even though Patrick would probably be okay on his own, Pete still felt the need to stay with him until he went back to normal.
Hey, that one trick statement isn't true. The article was about a torb player, and Blizzard made a statement saying it was disruption during gameplay. Someone else posted a video where the torb player would just stay in spawn because he didn't get to play torb and wouldn't move from it. It isn't the case of someone having a favourite character like Mercy and Genji and having the majority of hours on them.
yesterday I was at gamestop and a man in full Data cosplay walked up to the front counter and I did a double take so hard I nearly broke my neck. So, he walks up and the cashier just casually smiles and goes “How’s it going, Data? What can I do for you?” and Data goes, “I am doing quite well. I was just wondering when you guys would have Destiny 2 in stock.” This mans……literally did not smile or emote at all. He went all in. The cashier was totally non fazed. I, however, was completely shitting my pants cos ya’ll DO NOT understand how good this dude’s cosplay was. It really looked like fuckin data teleported into the middle of game stop in rural ohio to ask about motherfucking destiny 2.
The only time he broke character was when I was stealthily trying to stare at him and thinking about asking for a pic when he was walking out.This dude. Looked at me, completely expressionless. and WINKED at me. Someone collect ya mans he wildin lmfao
Are weak plots really bad? Bc I can't really think about a real good one
For this, we need to answer the following questions:
What is a plot point? What makes a plot point strong?
In order for something to be a plot point to begin with, it must provide a point within the plot where the story could go in more then one direction. In most situations, it’s the character’s choices (generally those of the main character, though not necessarily) which pick the direction the plot takes from this point.
Looking at a plot point from this angle, we can deduce that the plot has a lot to do with who our character is. This makes sense. Goals are absolutely necessary for almost every story imaginable, because if your character doesn’t want something then you have no plot.
So we have a character who’s striving towards their goal. How do we turn that into a strong plot point? Characters who have goals should also have beliefs, (or in some cases, secondary goals), and these two things must conflict somewhere. Anywhere the character must choose between them, we have a foundation on which to build an interesting, strong plot point. On the other hand, if we don’t have these things, our plot point won’t ever be as strong as it might otherwise have been, no matter how many cool things we throw into it.
So to create a strong plot point we can start with a character who needs to make a choice in order to reach their goal. We make this choice more interesting by throwing road blocks at the character. It might help to ask yourself these sorts of questions:
What can we throw at this character to make them change their choice partway through?
What can we throw at this character which we know will stress them out personally?
What can we throw at this character after they’ve made their choice, which they’ll have to now overcome because of the choice they’ve made?
What sort of consequences will come out of this choice and how do we show them?
And if you’re willing to do some work in order to find a realistic way for your character to get out of the situation: What can we throw at this character which will turn this into their worst nightmare; the most awful possible version of this situation?
Knowing what makes a strong plot point, we can finally answer the question: Are weak plot points really bad?
Plot points with weak foundations are really bad, yes. Weak plot points which don’t revolve around a character making tough choices in order to reach their goals will generally fall flat to readers.
But, not every plot point needs to be a crazy, chaotic mind blowing twist either.
Sometimes the choices we find most emotional and stressful are the ones everyone else tells up should be easy. The key to engaging your reader in a plot point is to convince them that this is emotional and stressful for your character and that your character believes there will be consequences to making a bad choice, and to instill in them the need to know what choice your character will make and what outcome that choice will bring.
tl;dr Plot points don’t have to be unique or fancy or even action-packed in order to engage a reader. They simply need to show a situation where a character the reader is already engaged with has to make a decision which will change the course of the plot.
(Minor Edit: I had a dyslexic moment and read ‘plot points’ instead of simply ‘plot’ five times in a row, so that’s what the answer is specifically about. But since a plot is made of a bunch of plot points with sentimental connecty stuff in between, this is still all the same advice as I would otherwise give. Write some good plot points with solid, emotional foundation and your plot will be sturdy enough to carry a reader through, I promise ^^)

Question: So the hat trick pic of Gabe has me thinking. Since no one knows if someone is going to get a hatty at the beginning, are all goal pucks saved for the player regardless every game? Or aside from 1st NHL goals, are they just 'symbolic' pucks?
GREAT question. So, the guys in the box keep every puck from every goal during the game in case something monumental like a hat trick happens. The pucks you see are actually the pucks, which is really neat! If they have no use for the puck, it gets donated - that’s where all the game-used pucks come from.
There comes a certain issue when you’re the son of the notorious politician Anatoly Nikiforov — one that Victor is sure no other skater has to deal with.
“I can’t believe they’re trying to kill me during the Grand Prix Finals!” Victor yells at Yakov through his phone. “What if they end up hurting other people?! How are they going to cover that up!?”
“Your father’s enemies have a lot of power,” Yakov snaps out, “So if you don’t want to risk anyone else getting hurt, stick to the less populated areas while your father’s men get here.”
Gunshots resound behind him, bullets riocheting too close for his liking. He’s in the bowels of the stadium, in the back corridors rarely used, and can only pray that he stays alive and he doesn’t run into anyone else that could possibly get caught in the crossfire-
Just as he says that, he rounds a corner and comes across someone that’s clearly a skater, judging by their jacket. Fuck.
The skater startles. “Victor Nikiforov?” he stammers. Victor doesn’t have any time to respond, just keeps running, tugging the skater by his sleeve. He looks vaguely familiar, so Victor thinks he isn’t a hitman in disguise.
“Run!” he says by way off explanation, angry Russian yelling audible from behind them. The skater’s eyes widen, and he wrenches his wrist free and runs under his own power.
More gunshots, one coming so close that Victor has to jump to the side. “Are they trying to kill you?!”
Victor nods in lieu of wasting his breath, but instead of continuing to run, the other skater ducks into a side room. Which makes sense, as they’re after Victor, not him, so if he- Victor dismisses the man from his thoughts though, continuing to run instead, his legs starting to burn with exertion. Thank god he’d already skated.
And then, instead of gunshots behind him, there’s screaming. Victor whirls around in alarm, afraid that they’d found the other skater- only to see all four of his would-be-pursuers on the ground in various states of pain.
“My name is Yuuri Katsuki,” he says. “I’m skating last for the short program. I couldn’t let them hurt you.” There’s something dark in his eyes as he picks up one of the men’s guns and fire four shots, very deliberately, at all of them.
Are we sharing HCs? I got a dumb one. Hanzo is low key into wood working and carpentry because it require a lot of precision and mathematics. He silently will go around base and fix minor things and sometimes wood shavings will be found scattered about base no one knows for the longest time who’s doing it until McCree catches hanzo working on small wood sculptures one afternoon. They start to bond cause McCree is into whittling.
Oooh thats so cool!! im laughing at secret repairman Shimada; Creaky cabinet door? no longer! The drawer has trouble closing? No need to ask twice!! But nobody would suspect him of doing that, its so not the picture they have of him.
