best character okay

Jeremy: And despite all of their bitching they sung along to all the songs anyway.

Christine: Yeah and then you and Mike were making bedroom eyes at each other during “Love Will Find A Way”.

Rich: Not to mention you wouldn’t shut up about how much you loved Kovu for the entire movie lol

Jeremy: Wha? Hey!!

Michael: Yeah we know you’re a furry but do you have to make it so obvious?

Jeremy: I AM NOT–

Michael: Saying that you have a crush on Kovu immediately results in classifying you as a furry, Jer.

Jeremy: I came out to have a good time and I’m honestly feeling so attacked right now


Bonus:

Its inevitable, high school is gonna end, we are gonna move to different towns. We aren’t going to see these people everyday anymore, we have six months left together. Six more months of lunches 5 days a week at the same table in the same room in the same school. About 150, give or take a few, days until we graduate and leave this school forever. 4 years of our lives is done. And some people might think that this is a dark depressing thought, that in six months we will leave our best friends behind and move on to another part of our life story. But I think there is a difference between me and someone who thinks this is dark and depressing. You, who thinks this is a dark thought who doesn’t want to hear it, you are probably scared, terrified for the inevitable future that awaits you. And thats perfectly fine, be scared to leave your best friends, that fear is going to drive you to make the most out of these last six months together. Its going to make you want to go out and go to games, dress crazily for spirit weeks, not give a crap about what other people in the school think because you are enjoying yourself for the last time with these people. The difference is I am okay with me and my friends splitting up. I have seven best friends and we hang out all the time. I know that these people are going to be the ones I can count on, these people are going to be with me for the rest of my life, most likely the ones I want to have in my wedding. There is going to be distance put in between us and it will be hard to talk. Seven different people, seven different schedules, seven different towns, finding the time for everyone to talk will be so hard but I’m not worried. These are the people that I know I can count on, that will call me out when I’m lying and will help me through a bad day. I know that we might be able to talk everyday, and I think I’m okay with that because I know that these are the types of people that I don’t need to talk to everyday because  I know that they will always be there for me. That doesn’t mean I’m not going to try to talk to them, believe me I am, but it means that I will be okay if there comes a point where everyone is too busy to talk everyday. Now with all this being said, and how I am not scared, that doesn’t mean I won’t take advantage of these six months, I will. I will enjoy every moment that we spend together, every lunch, every dinner at my house, every song played on my guitar in my room, every old movie watched together, every car ride blasting music. I’m going to love every minute of it, but I know that I will be okay when it comes to the point where all of that is just a memory. I will be okay when we all  leave, yes I will be heartbroken but I know that we will always find our ways back to each other.
I think more seniors need to understand this. People think when high school is over they end a book, they think of there life as a book series, but its not, its one long novel. High school is just a chapter in it, and just because the chapter is over doesn’t mean the main characters cease to exist. Yes new characters come into the story, but the main ones will always be there, maybe not like they were before, and maybe not in the next chapter, but they will come back into the story. It might be years down the line, but the people who are supposed to be in your life, have a way of coming back. These are your best friends, the people you meet in high school and if your lucky they will be there for the rest of your life.

I had to write something about Wes Weston. I think I’m in love.

XXX

Wes looked up at the white clock that hung just above the whiteboard, its second hand going slower the longer he stared at it. He needed the bell to ring and he needed it to ring now!

He needed to talk to Danny.

He’d been desperate to talk to the boy since yesterday but settled for waiting until today to do it. Of course, Danny had been late to school (probably due to him fighting ghosts or something. Wes didn’t know. He didn’t stalk the boy’s every move just because he knew he was Danny Phantom) which forced Wes to wait until the end of the school day to talk to Danny.

What would you say is the most spot on characterization of jason? or what combinations of story arcs/continuities together make the best/most accurate jason todd? love your blog btw, im just getting into batfam hell and want to understand the characters more- thank you!

No problem, anon. 

I encourage every Jason fan to go back and read his entire 80s Post-Crisis run (even the Pre-Crisis stuff has some cute things but it’s basically a different character so). I think it’s hugely important to know who Jason actually was before he died (and DC’s terrible retcons and victim blaming should be avoided at all costs). Also he’s a super cute little bean and I love him. 

Obviously the end of that is Death in the Family. 

From there, go with his return in Batman: Under the Red Hood (Hush is optional but there is a tie in). The trade includes some annuals, one of which explains the resurrection (and i overall prefer it to Lost Days which did some things I don’t really agree with). 

Lost Days should be read, it’s a bit of a mixed bag, your mileage may vary, but it has some neat stuff and this is Post-Crisis Jason so we can’t be picky.

From there, skip the rest of Post-Crisis, the entire new 52, and go straight to Red Hood and the Outlaws Rebirth. 

Do not pass Go. Do not collect 200 dollars and the terrible characterizations that I’m helpfully directing you to avoid.

Y’all…..Jodariel is the best video game character I’ve encountered in a long time. 

ushiten; a quiet moment between the two of them.

“Wakatoshi-kun~”

Wakatoshi looks up from his magazine in time to see Tendou bouncing through the door and throw himself onto Wakatoshi’s bed. He lowers the magazine some more, swivelling slightly in his chair to face his friend.

“Hello, Tendou,” he says. “Are you alright?”

Tendou rolls over until his face isn’t squished against Wakatoshi’s mattress anymore. Eyes half-lidded, he peeks up at Wakatoshi. “Are you reading the advertisements or actually reading the manga this time, Wakatoshi?”

He glances back down. “The manga,” he replies. “I finished the advertisements first, though.”

Tendou laughs. “You never disappoint, my friend.”

“I’m glad you think so.” Wakatoshi places the magazine on his desk, then considers his friend, who is still sprawled over his bed like a rag doll. He’s not even humming one of those pop songs the radio refuses to stop playing these days. Wakatoshi isn’t very used to seeing Tendou like this.

“Did something happen? Did Semi give up on tutoring you again?”

“Eh, who needs his help anyway,” drawls Tendou. He falls quiet. Silence isn’t unfamiliar between them, when it’s just the two of them. Wakatoshi waits for Tendou to collect his thoughts. “Hey, Wakatoshi-kun. Come here.”

“Sorry?”

Tendou waves at him until Wakatoshi leaves the chair and perches gingerly on the edge of the bed, next to Tendou’s knees. He’s only just sat down when Tendou suddenly grabs his arm, and then Wakatoshi is blinking up at his ceiling, a warm weight pressed against him.

Hi! You say you often write your characters with issues that don't stick to precise, defined labels... I think that labels are important, but they also ruin the fun... How do you avoid that in your writing? I love to write characters with issues, but it's only growing up that I learnt about them...With old characters, it's okay, but creating new ones, ugh... I don't know, do you have any tips on staying organic in your writing? Thanks and love <3

…Okay I’m not sure if I’m going to be answering this correctly, but…I’m going to try my best. Here goes anon <3

Labels are important, for sure. In the case of like, mental illness, there are some labels - Jack has anxiety, Jack can show symptoms of depression, Jack has post-trauma - but he might not have very culturally specific labels (because, in this case, he’s not in that culture, and it’s not super relevant). In that sense, I might consider symptoms of different disorders and think which ones fit Jack, or which i can see Jack doing / not doing.

Likewise Gwyn, for example, has some aspects to his character that can easily be coded as high functioning autism (which I didn’t realise, until a couple of autistic folks told me). I didn’t think ‘I’m going to write a high functioning autistic character’ but I am high-functioning autistic, and I did want him to show some issues around communication and socialisation, along with his habit of hyperfocusing on things at times (which can be coded in a lot of other ways too). What I like about characters being coded in ways that can be labelled, but don’t necessarily have an overarching label, is that it means people can identify with those characters when those labels cross different platforms. Like, he’s coded as post-traumatic, he’s coded as potentially autistic, he’s coded as potentially having attachment disorders etc. which gives a chance for multiple people to see themselves in him, if they want to.

And really, that’s their choice. They could do that even if I wasn’t writing him that way, but I think it helps.

Anyway, re: labels, I suppose the most important thing to maybe keep in mind is that you’re writing a story about characters, and not about labels.

I like to write about characters. Though their labels inform the character - Mosk being a dryad is important to his character, for example - it’s not like…the story is only about ‘Mosk as a dryad.’ Fae Tales isn’t about ‘Gwyn as a gay person.’ The Golden Age that Never Was isn’t like, ‘the story of how Jack is traumatised.’ I mean all those things are in it and important -  Gwyn being gay is how he can be with Augus, and Jack being traumatised generates a lot of issues, and Mosk being a dryad will inform how he orients to Eran, a fire fae.

Yet stories and the characters are more than a handful of labels, or many labels. Gwyn’s also a cartographer, he’s a submissive and a service top (mostly), he’s a war maker, he’s disabled, he lives with chronic pain etc. You could write down a list of so many different things he is. Some of those labels are obviously politicised - he’s gay. Even if that’s not politicised within the story, that’s policitised in reality, so him being gay is political. So is him being white, and so is his class status and other things. It’s easy to focus on politicised labels when writing a story, especially when you want to write a diverse story.

So I suppose if I set about trying to write a story about labels, I might only focus on politicised labels and forget that my characters are so much more than that (as are people who live under politicised labels they choose for themselves, and those that are chosen for them).

And if I wanted to write a story about Gwyn, I’d try and think of all the different things that make him who he is. As you say, labels are important, but focusing on them too much can ruin the fun.

When you’re generating new characters, if you focus on a mix of labels, not just those politicised or made into Discourse points and so on, you can get a more organic creation. I mean a lot of labels can be politicised (Gwyn being a cartographer is a privilege afforded to him by a family who had the money to allow him that training, but, feasibly, in the fae world, a poor fae could also train in this if they worked hard and apprenticed, same label - different politics and class issues around it etc.), but you’re not fleshing out a news article, you’re fleshing out a flawed character.

In terms of staying organic, I…just think I’m trying to get to know some new people I’ve never met before, and they’re trying to teach me things too. It helps to write what you want to write instead of what you think you should be writing. I don’t write traumatised characters with mental illnesses because I think I do it well or because I think society needs more representation of mentally ill characters achieving great things, I write it because I want to write it. I don’t know if I do it well. I just like doing it.

(That’s complicated too. I like doing it because I believe there does need to be better representation for mentally ill people, but it’s not an onerous political duty, it’s not ‘intentional activism.’ It is a form of self-expression that publically goes against a lot of what’s out there, and is something I enjoy in my personal life re: reading fanfiction and stuff too. I write to fill the gap, but the reason the gap is there is absolutely a political reason re: ableism and mental health. It’s like…I just like writing what I write. It’d also be totally okay if I just wanted to write action adventures with folks wielding swords and stuff.)

As I become more aware of different issues in contemporary society, some of them I’ll write about (with further research) and some I don’t. I can’t address every politicised issue, nor should I. Then I’m just trying to please everyone which is impossible. Ultimately I came here to write, to write about flawed characters who are learning how to heal. They pick up a bunch of labels in the process. And a lot of labels came retroactively. I didn’t know Gwyn was a cartographer until he ‘showed’ me that. And then…you know, there it was and it seems like he’s always been that way, lol.
