best description really


“I feel bad for this Clockmaker I met once…You see, everyone thinks he’s me? And obviously, he’s not. I think he’s probably a good person. And, well. I most certainly am not.” –Ashmore “Ash” Takashi 

“I can’t fight! I’m a Clockmaker! And not a very good one! The one clock I’m known for doesn’t even tick right! What good is a clock that doesn’t tick!”– Kenji “Taka” Takashi. 

The first of many Book on Fire Art Project illustrations! Starting off with @ofpaintedflowers breathtaking take on Ashmore (left) and Taka (Right). There’s so much of their characters into these pictures, it’s amazing! 

Ash is an (ex) assassin, who broke away after being accused of a murder he didn’t actually commit. He’s on the run, trying to find a safe place to be for him and his boyfriend, Ryn. He’s also trying to come to terms with the fact that his actions have never been justified, and that maybe, just maybe, everything he’s done so far is wrong. He, like Taka, is a fire elemental, and he uses chackra and fire as his main weapons. 

Taka is the (as far as he’s aware) only survivor of the destruction of Siazia, a once-great school so prosperous that it was almost its own country. He is the holder of a mysterious artifact called the “Chaos Watch,” which only seems to work right before disaster hits. He has no weapon proficiency and it’s rumored that his fire is unable to burn people. Despite all that he’s been through, he tries his best to see the best in people. He’s also, technically, the main character of the novel. 

They’re not twins. It’s something much worse than that.

lol the abraham thing... he was a decent and very brave man, he didn't deserve to die especially not in the way he did and rip to him. but lets face it.. he had no tact, was not above-average intelligent or kind and looked like someone skinned garfield and threw the remains at a tank-sized ham..... I'm probably biased because I'm a huge lesbian but those two women could land anyone(each other for example) and fought over him?!?!

you’re probably talking to the wrong person because i’ve never particularly liked abraham anyway if i’m honest. but same… think of all the f/f ships that could have been.

The few people who love Alice isn’t dead and draw fanart for it are so talented and I love how they draw Keisha’s rig

Love when real signs and locations and places are recognised too and it has the best descriptions of landscapes that really get to the point and don’t drag on at all, the whole thing is so concise I love it

Maybe there’s like some corny aspects but I love it I love Alice isn’t dead so much

I actually binged it on a roadtrip to Louisiana last spring

The sound quality is also v good, pop those headphones on

I’ve been spoiled by the zonecast who’s episodes are so long, Alice isn’t dead is a half hour but each episode feels like it’s lasted 5 minutes but in a good way


a decade since the airing of “dalek

some deleted lines. (text from “doctor who: the shooting scripts”)

Sunday 23rd October Show Review

Normally I make separate posts for each cover I see, and I expected this to be a short, snappy little Annabel Baldwin as Delphi post, but there were so many covers yesterday, and so many of the main cast did ridiculous, adorable, and hilarious things that I really just have to try and write about everything and everyone. Welcome to the mega post. I hope it doesn’t disappoint.

Behold these beauties sent to me by a girl with a heart of gold @yanlogic-soinsainthood! I can’t thank you enough, J. <3

Some people in our lives somehow mirror who we really are, and they are not mirroring the mask that we put on to meet and greet on a daily basis. For a man such as The Doctor, he has this kind of conscience now, asking the bigger questions of, “who am I really?”

We all arrive at that point in our lives, and whether we can really with rigorous honesty find answers that can sit well… There will be demons there that perhaps he hasn’t dealt with, or he’s repressed or he doesn’t feel good about.

Missy just blazes that light on all of the defects of his character. There’s that wonderful feeling you can’t bulls–t a bullsh–ter. It’s almost that type of relationship with them of a sibling, or any close friend of yours that knows who you really are at your core… And is able to turn up, and remind you who you really are behind that mask. Missy is his barometer conscience that turns up.


- Michelle Gomez about her character’s relationship with the Doctor. (from here)

Really reminds me of conversations I used to have about Ten’s line, “Wonder what I’d be, without you.”. I love this idea that the Master sort of works as a moral compass (or “barometer conscience” as Gomez puts it) for the Doctor, in how he should act (or rather, not act), because the Master is the perfect villain for the Doctor to be a hero for, and when he doesn’t have that, he tends to lose his way…

*Curtsies* Dearest Duke, do you have an advice for a struggling writer who has a difficult time describing things without it sounding like an alien trying to make sense of the human world? My descriptions of time/setting/people is very pedestrian and so, so awful. Are there ways to improve my descriptions and make them tight, but beautiful?

*Curtsies* Absolutely, and my first piece of advice is this: Don’t try to write beautifully. Trying to write beautifully is how you end up with overly florid, flowery prose. Instead, try to write accurately. Some of it may not be beautiful at all, but if it gives your readers a good sense of place/person/etc., you’ve done your job. Some of the best descriptions are the really nasty ones. (My favorite description from my current WIP is literally about blood and snot. Not beautiful at all.) My second piece of advice is this: With description, less is almost always more. Don’t feel like you have to give us a complete description of every room a character walks into. Instead, provide details as they become relevant.This is how you (a) orient the reader in the space and (b) avoid info-dumping. Same goes for descriptions of characters. Don’t give us a head-to-toe list of physical features. Give us an eye color the first time two characters make eye contact. Tell us John’s hands are rough and callused when he grabs George’s arm. Tell us Ellie’s shirt is flannel when she’s polishing her glasses on the hem. Basically, make description part of the action. If the wainscoting isn’t relevant to what’s happening in the scene, leave it out. Action is eloquence.
