character-description

I hate how Rowling changed Pottermore just because she has a new play and a new movie coming out. I don’t feel connected with that world anymore and I really couldn’t care less for the updates about the characters and the creature description that she puts up on the website. I just want the old site back.

You couldn’t tell if it was the pounding at the door or the pounding in your head that woke you up.

“Stop banging on the door.” You groaned as you rolled over, pulling your pillow over your head.

The door cracked open enough for Sam to poke his head in. “Pounding…I was barely knocking. Y/N, c'mon it’s two in the afternoon. You never sleep this late.“

You moved the pillow just enough to squint at him with one eye, trying to shield yourself from the light coming through the cracked door.

After reading the description of the new Monster High: Dance the Fright Away collection, I believe the new looks are kind of like a flashback from the current Monster High. They mention how they are opening Monster High, and they are celebrating it, which makes me think Monster High is planning on explaining the past of what we had since 2008! I could be wrong, but this could be a possibility. Also, the dolls/movie have a more ‘younger’ look to them, right? I still dislike them though… Thoughts? Here are the descriptions below:

Thank you again and again, @icybluepenguin, for your help and encouragement and editing. I was ready to abandon this plot line until you pushed me right over the edge.

Loki groaned in disgust as he awoke, staring up at the peak of his tiny canvas shelter. What now?
Crack! “Aw shit!” “That’s it, the light’s busted, get a fire going so we can see what we’re doing.” “You idiot!”
Snap!
Hel! What kind of buffoons are out in the middle of nowhere at this time of night?
“Carlssen, haul that box over to the clearing, and bring me the ax.”
Ah! Robbers. That kind.

Hey I was wondering where you got that character description of Hamilton in the lmm and Eminem Twitter photo

the character descriptions (written by LMM) were posted on Playbill for the show’s Broadway EPAs. said casting notice no longer exists cuz the job postings there are only up for a limited time, which is why the source links in all of my posts are broken now. oops. the EPA casting call still exists on BroadwayWorld.com, though!

[AFF] Frozen Beauty

Title: Frozen Beauty
Author: Varalei
Pairing: Xiumin/Luhan, kid!Yixing
Status: Ongoing
Length: Chaptered
Rating: PG-15
Genre: Angst, Romance, Family!AU

Summary: They used to be perfect. They used to be the wanted couple; the ones where their bodies molded together in a flash of pure, heated passion; where their promises whispered gently into each other’s ears; where their dependency for each other became a matter of life and happiness. Kim Minseok gave his heart, and Lu Han gave his soul. Then Lu Han crumbled. Minseok broke. Time diminished, and their hearts slowed; their touches lessened. Soon, they became frozen in time, with only a boy who attempts to move it one day at a time. 

Reasons Why You Submitted: The writing is phenomenal, omg. I recommend xiuhan fans to read. It is only one chapter still but lots of potential and superb descriptions and character interaction. 10/10 rec!

Have you seen this classic literature character?

Brian Joseph Davis  is the creator of The Composites, a blog devoted to police sketches of literary characters made using real-deal police sketch software and character descriptions from famous books.

He explains how he got his idea from “identikits,” a technique for creating police sketches in which crime witnesses identify individual characteristics, like curly hair or a stubby nose, from pictures on note cards. As a witness to great works of literature, Davis realized the same technique could capture the characteristics of his favorite characters, and the project began.

in order of depiction: Jane Eyre, Heathcliff, Norman Bates, Nurse Ratched, Sherlock Holmes, Tess D’Uberville, Tyrion Lannister.

Can you give a deeper description of Uthvir, either personality wise or physically. I can't really recall much of their features. Hanninan too!!

Vivid descriptions of characters is not actually something I excel at. I like to leave some stuff ambiguous so people can put their own spin on it. So I’m afraid I must disappoint!

anonymous asked:

Can I say how much I hate those 'companion reacts' posts. For every one they get correct in characterisation there are ten more that are so out of character descriptions/reactions it hurts. Not to mention how they really go against some of the lore from the series. I can only surmise that these people are new to Fallout. I have them blacklisted but damn they still appear daily on my dash

Yeah, I don’t really like them. I’m glad people are having fun but a lot of them seem way off base to me and really predictable (if it’s Hancock, I can bet with 99% accuracy that no matter the situation, it will involve chems). Honestly, I think part of the problem is there are a lot of companions and a lot of content attached to each. It’s really hard to get a handle on all of them. So people might really know a few companions, but I doubt people know all the companions well enough to predict how they would react in any given situation. I know I certainly couldn’t for a good portion of the companions.

Describing Skin Tone

Anonymous asked: Aaaaugh I’m really sorry to ask this and I know you answer questions like this all the time but I haven’t been able to find a straight answer anywhere else. Is there any possibility that you might know whether it’s considered offensive to describe people as having wood-colored skin? I know it’s considered offensive to compare skin color to food, but if it was said that someone had mahogany or pinewood skin or something, do you think that would be okay? Again, I’m really sorry.

This question is one not only of style but also of knowing and relating to your intended audience. There are no hard and fast rules on which descriptive words for skin color will be offensive to everyone every time. Though many descriptors for skin color have been identified as offensive or acceptable by large groups of people in the past, the reality is that every reader has their own preferences.

Similarly, there is no word choice that will fit perfectly in every stylistic circumstance. Tone, pacing, genre, character development, theme, and desired voice must all be taken into account.

So, you can understand that is difficult to advise you in any specific way. We cannot tell you yes or no. The best answer is that it depends.

The trick, I believe, is to think critically about the denotation and connotation of the word in question and use your best judgement. That judgement is born of experience and research, which means writing people with skin tones other than yours and learning about representing people who do not look like you from people who do not look like you. You may not have the experience or have done the research, and that’s okay, but the only person who can answer your question is you. You know your style and level of experience. You know the circumstances. You are the one who knows your intended audience and interacts with your readers. 

This is a situation where the answer cannot just be given to you. You need to do the research and gain the experience, then you can decide these things for yourself.

The Writer's Bane: Describing a Character's Physical Appearance - WRITERS HELPING WRITERS™

by Angela Ackerman

I’m going to be totally honest here. There is little I detest more than trying to describe how my character looks. The reasons are numerous. I think it sounds boring. It slows the story. It reads like a list or sounds cliched, etc, blargh de blargh.

I write in first person, to boot, making it even more difficult to create natural-sounding character description without using the dreaded MIRROR technique. After all, every time a writer uses a mirror to describe their character’s physique, somewhere in the world a zombie dies. Think about that. Right now, Zombies are dying. I can’t add to this terrible crime. Can you?

But then I read Word Painting and realized I was looking at it all wrong. Physical description doesn’t need to be a dry, tasteless blob of facts to help the writer see our character. It can be seasoned and textured, and doled out bite by savory bite.
