They’ve been writing since they were really young. They are always working on a project, or attempting some crazy challenge. They don’t shy away from trying out new genres or writing styles. Once they want to do something, there’s no way to stop them.
They may appear to have a controlled exterior, but all of that changes the instant you ask them about their characters. They write the most lovable & sweet characters, and they also happen to be their own #1 biggest fan— so beware talking smack about their babies.
They’re always juggling several projects at the same time. They write fiction and enjoy it, but they do much more. They can be spotted writing the comic-book version of one of their previous works, or typing up a movie script. Prolific doesn’t even begin to describe them.
Their storytelling is spontaneous, almost volatile, and that is what makes their books so fun to read. There’s no telling where their stories will go or what will happen next. For them, what matters most is not the journey— but the adventure!
They know their characters better than anyone else. Sometimes they may spend more time writing backstories (and doing world-building) than actually writing the book, but at the end it’s all worth it. That’s why their characters feel like real people.
Their two best friends are subtlety and foreshadowing. They love leaving clues in the background, hints of what will be happening later in the story. They live for astute readers and, if you pay attention, you will realize there is more going on than you could’ve ever expected.
Some writers are afraid of having multiple points of view, not them. They have tons of POVs, and they all get their chance under the spotlight. Sometimes their antagonists get the most character development, and that’s why they don’t feel like “villains.”
They use everything in their power to strike the reader right in the *feels*. They’re the masters of cliffhangers and plot-twists. It's not about playing dirty, it’s about getting a reaction out of you. Character deaths should be expected, though they will still surprise you every damn time.
They don’t simply just *write* a book, they immerse themselves in the process. They’re dedicated researchers, and are known to go as far as changing their entire surroundings to match the ‘feel’ of the story they’re currently working on.
They don’t write one-shots. Everything (and yes they do mean *everything*) they write is part of a series or their overarching mega-macro-universe. Expect to see cameos, familiar faces, and recurring themes across all their books!
With them, no idea is too strange or far-fetched. They can take anything and spin it into a story. Mixing genres, and making new ones along the way, is all par for the course. Best of all— is that their crazy story ideas always work.
Everything they write is magical. They can make the most mundane story feel bigger-than-life and, when it comes to creating breath-taking worlds & settings, there’s simply no better. Be careful, though, because if given the chance they *will* make you believe that magic is real.
Whatever you do, don’t think of a five year old Sally Jackson desperately wondering how her parents could leave her, not understanding why she was now all alone.
Don’t think about a sixteen year old Sally Jackson having to drop out of high-school and take up several jobs to support her uncle, burying her dream of graduating and becoming a writer, because it was never going to happen now.
Don’t think about a seventeen year old Sally Jackson watching all her friends go on to college, slowly leaving her behind and forgetting about her.
Don’t think about an eighteen year old Sally Jackson crying at her uncle’s funeral, because that was it, her family was fully gone, and she was all alone.
Don’t think about a twenty year old Sally Jackson lying on the beach, after she found out Poseidon, the man she had fallen in love with so deeply and quickly, was a god, realising that he too would leave her.
Don’t think about a twenty year old Sally Jackson finding out she was pregnant, and realising that her baby would be a demigod, and attract monsters… and then running into a man called Gabe at work that day.
Don’t think about a twenty-one year old Sally Jackson crying as she held her newborn baby, because if she was sure about one thing, it was that her baby was going to have a better life than she did, and she would never, ever leave him.
Don’t think about her kissing her baby’s forehead, and, recalling all the myths her parents had told her when she was young of one particular hero, whispering, “I name you Perseus.”
hello~ I love your blog so much?? you write everyone so accurately and
realistically! if its not too much to ask, could you please write one
where you always see WinWin walking his dog around campus and always ask
to pet it?? I’m sorry this is so random, but thank you in advance^^
You really like that time of day when the cute boy with the fluffy Chow comes and meets you.
They always try to pick each other and work closely in history classes cuz they are literally a power duo, no one in Derry can put together a better history project than those two working together
On days when Mike doesn’t have chores and his dad sends him off to explore a part of Derry, Mike will always stop by Ben’s house to invite him along
Mike is so excited to have a friend that is just as fascinated with Derry as he is and they’re always exploring old places they’d be too scared to go to alone
Ben come to Mike’s family farm to help with chores a lot so they can be done faster and go out play sooner
On that note, Mike’s parents love Ben, not just because he helps out sometimes but because he’s just a sweet kid. Mrs. Hanlon always invites him to stay for dinner whenever Ben is over
And Mrs. Hanscom adores Mike too, they’re always at each other’s houses OK
Like you know when you call your best friend’s parent Mom #2? It’s like that for both of them
There’s a table in the corner of the library that’s like Their Table that no one else uses cuz it’s old and worn down but Mike and Ben love it and it’s a little secluded from everything else so they can get away with whispering a little louder than normal and the librarians love both of them anyway so they don’t mind
One Richie had a school project with the two of them and carved the words “Losers Club” onto the desk and Ben and Mike pretended to be mad about him defacing library property but they love him and at this point the table basically belongs to the loser’s club anyway
Person A is an introvert who works at a desk job. Person B is an outgoing person who always hangs out at the bar A sometimes goes to. Person B is always hitting on A, but is respectful about it.
One day person A is asked to show a new employee around, only to find that they are none other than person B. Person B makes it their goal to make person A blush as much as possible and convince them to go out with them.
Headcanon: Taiyang understands Yang’s want to shut down after all that’s happened to her (he did the same thing after Summer’s death). So he gives Yang her space. But soon after Ruby leaves he realizes that it is time that his eldest daughter starts to heal (not fade into the background and watch friends leave like he did).
So he starts coming in to talk to her more(”how are you feeling today, kiddo? Want pie?”). Tries to get her out of bed to do something other than go to the bathroom (”you can’t just lay here, firecracker”). He gets her to take Zwei out on walks (sometimes he’ll find her softly smiling at the corgi’s antics). They start having meals at the table. One night Tai makes a pretty good dad joke and Yang actually laughs for the first time in months (”that was terrible!”).
He offers to start up her training again(“only if you feel up to it”). And continues to do so until one day she agrees to just watch him practice (”just for a bit”). Eventually they work up to having daily runs and workouts together. Yang joins in with his practices after realizing he can’t improve just by training with himself (after all, they only have each other right now). A week of this passes before they restart her own training.
There’s a day where she can’t lay a single hit on him and she keeps swinging a punch with the arm that’s not there. She gets frustrated, embarrassed and angry and goes in for the charge when she stops herself (she remembers what charging in with a blind rage did last time). She takes a step back and calms herself, then attacks. She is able to land a few good hits after that and Tai gives her two thumbs up and a wide grin despite his bloody nose.
Yang begins to contribute to conversations with Tai more. They talk a lot. About Ruby (who often sends letters). Qrow(who rarely sends anything). Mom (both of them). Weiss. Blake (”she must have had a reason, Yang.” ”…I know.”). The school. Penny. Pyrrha. Her arm.
Yang decides not to get a mechanical arm just yet. She wants to be able to accept and live with what has happened to her and fully heal (”before patching it up with a metal bandaid”). Taiyang agrees (and thinks she’s gonna be alright).
After a couple months of grueling practices and heart pouring discussions, Yang feels safe to say that she is getting better and even tells Tai that. He smiles proudly and hugs her (”dad, i can’t breathe!”) before letting her go to take Zwei out for his daily walk.
He begins the countdown for when she will also have to leave (because in the end, she didn’t need him anymore).
These edits have been sitting in my drafts patiently waiting to be posted when the time is right since the beginning of the season 12 when I made this “timed gif” to celebrate the season premiere. Long story short: I made way more edits than I needed in the end, so instead of simply deleting I thought I’d keep them and well, what better time to post these than when christmas is really close?
I have talked about it back when the first promo for that episode came out already about the whole Satan/Santa-thing and how Rowena as Rudolf the Reindeer is used by him etc., so I won’t go into that again. What I however only now realize is that this dream of Rowena’s which gets invaded by Lucifer kind of captures nicely already that even though she liked to free him there seems to have been some nagging doubt or bad feeling after all the whole thing about living in a nice big house (very revealing indeed when keeping in mind how she later in the episode tells her son that she hates him, because she feel in love and was betrayed and left behind in the cold while Fergus’ father went back to his “grand house”) isn’t the nightmare. The nightmare for her is that the antlers won’t come off. And ain’t that quite the perfect metaphor for how Lucifer is literally putting Rowena in front of the cart like Rudolph so she can “guide him” out of the cage. And that very action, Rowena’s spell sort of “binds” her to him - even in S12 still she is the only one able to put him back in the box and since this moment here there were quite a few moments when Lucifer came for her and made her help him even though she didn’t want to - I guess in some way then Rowena is still not entirely free from those antlers…?
Strength of spirit like that is rare. It must be guided. Do you know what a warrior’s second is? … I can make you a great warrior, Octavia of the Sky People, if you’re willing to do whatever it takes. First lesson… never question me.
This was sitting in my drafts for so long I thought I might as well post it.
“You’d be better off blogging,” Sherlock clucked, but John ignored him with furrowed brows as he stared at the crossword puzzle. Mary was obnoxiously good at those. Usually the papers at their house were always filled up before he’d even had a chance to try, and whenever he did try, she’d give him the answers behind his back. He just wanted to win. Okay, not win win. He wasn’t trying to be better than her, but she was generally good in most things. Okay, so he was, then again, it was good brainwork anyway. Except - “How the hell-,” he gritted his teeth, as he tried to find a five letter word for -
“What?” said John looking up from his paper in surprise at his friend who seemed to be partially distracted by his own laptop.
“Did you just say ‘Molly’?” he said trying to understand how that was a word for honest. It certainly didn’t add up with the other words.
Sherlock made a face, “I said noble.”
“No, you didn’t-,” he said blinking at him confused. “You said Molly. Why did you say Molly?”
For Your Consideration: Some Leia Organa headcanons.
She’s a brilliant Jedi Healer, a power that manifested itself long before she knew about her heritage or abilities. For example, the way she comforts Luke over the death of Obi-Wan even though her entire family and planet were just blown up in front of her. She PUTS A BLANKET AROUND HIS WEE SHOULDERS and tells him there wasn’t anything he could have done, ignoring her own pain in order to soothe another because ultimately she needs to help and share her strength with others. That’s how she copes.
When she becomes a Jedi, she hones this skill to provide physical and mental healing through meditation (Force knows that family needs it.)
Luke only has visions of the future, while Leia can only see the past. That’s how she remembers Padmé, and Luke doesn’t. Leia can feel and sense and see mere moments in her life that would slip others by, which is what makes her such a fierce politician. She can remember everything a rival has ever done and use it against them, she can recall details others would have missed, allowing her to get the upper hand. It also means she wins every argument with Han (she keeps a running tally over who has changed the most baby nappies).
Because of this, she’s a good judge of character: she trusts Luke immediately, she knows “there’s more to [Han] than money,” she can sense that Lando’s hiding something, she can sense that Mara isn’t going to hurt Luke despite her declarations of intended homicide. That’s why she gets so upset when people let her down, because she knows they’re better than that.
When she was a baby Leia would cry incessantly because she couldn’t help but feel the emotions and pains of those around her. She learnt to self-soothe long before she learnt to heal, and that’s why she sometimes comes across as cold or aloof - she had to be that way so not to drown in other people’s sorrows.
She often uses the pseudonym “Madame Prestor.”
Breha Organa’s middle name was Jacenta, meaning both of Leia’s twins are named after their grandmothers.
She prefers lightsaber Form VI (Niman), and in particular dual-bladed combat with a lightsaber and a shoto - it’s the diplomat’s form, and she likes the elegance and grace of it, using refined technique and fluid movement to defeat an opponent rather than just “bashing away at one another.”
