since ive been online for over 15 years i learned that everything is a thing, but i need validation
is this a thing when you wanna eat something but it doesnt have to be a certain flavour it has to be a certain texture? like when i have soup for dinner but icant stand it because that day I need something i can chew? or how sometimes icant stand the idea of eating anything more texturized than porridge?
Not to mention some foods that I might never try because of how gross they seem to be in the texture more than the taste.
he actually kept track of the books that she didn’t take very good care of omg svgafjtvrh
Of course, he did. Seifer is an orphan. Seifer grew up having to share virtually everything.
All that he owns is contained in that room and he guards it with his life. He’s extremely protective of these books because they are the only things that he has that he can claim as his own and Stella is systematically ruining them one at a time.
She’s been told how valuable Seifer holds knowledge and guess who has an excellent memory of those who have wronged him? Seifer is someone who came from nothing and yet she’s left them out in the rain, she’s folded pages and abused the condition of the books, and she’s also set them in places where dogs can chew on them.
If it continues, Stella will eventually pay for the consequences of her actions. For her to continue to ignore that would be a decision most unwise. She’s pushing buttons she shouldn’t push on Seifer.
What a complete shit show. It’s like a scene stolen from Get Out.
NOW can we finally drop kick the Clintons, the DLC and neoliberalism out of the Democratic Party? Can we at least stop pretending that they’re progressives, instead of neoliberals with a “benevolent” plantation owner mentality?
Bill Clinton was bad enough for Black people: Think about all the harmful anti-Black legislation he actively supported, like the Crime Bill of 1994 (mass incarceration), TANF (gutted welfare), how he signed legislation that blocked Pell Grants from going to prisoners seeking education, to how he blocked parents with drug arrest records from receiving food and housing assistance.
And now remember Hillary’s racist super predators speech (who needed to be “brought to heel” like animals), and how it took her 20 years to give a tepid non-apology, and how she literally had to be BEGGED to stop taking money from the private prison industry. The Clintons are foul.
YES, we still need to get rid of Donald Trump. No one is losing sight of that. But we can chew gum and walk at the same time. To beat Trump by wide margins we need actual progressives in 2018 and 2020. Not Third Way “moderates”. Not centrists. We need—we demand—progressives. By now it should be painfully clear that we can do better than Bill or Hillary Clinton. They are a political gift to Republicans and a liability to progressives. Any political influence that the Clintons hold over the Democratic Party needs to be completely rejected and eliminated. And that includes revamping or eliminating the rigged Super Delegate system.
I know this is a lesbian blog but I do want to make a quick shout out to my bi sisters:
Being bi isn’t a phase and you deserve better than someone who tells you that.
Being bi isn’t a “gateway sexuality” to being straight or gay and you deserve better than someone who thinks that.
Being bi doesn’t make you “more likely to cheat” and you deserve better than anyone who believes that.
Being bi doesn’t give you any privilege (no matter the gender of your partner) and you deserve better than someone who claims that.
Being bi is a good thing and you deserve someone who embraces you the way you are 100% and loves and supports you ❤❤❤
Hi HeyWriters! I was wondering: do you have a tip to create a weak point on main characters? I´m making a story, but I´m having trouble since my main character is TOO overpowered. Could you help me with this?
(All of this is written under the assumption your character has superpowers or “special” abilities, so forgive me if you meant a different kind of power.)
I created a character concept when I was twelve. She had all the superpowers of my favorite heroes and then some. As time wore on she gained more and more until eventually my adolescent brain invented logic and realized she was actually ridiculous. Here’s how I depowered this character, who’s name is Ace, without completely ruining her coolness.
Don’t be greedy. Any ability that does not contribute to the story needs to go. It’s taking up space that could be filled with credibility. I decided early on that Ace didn’t need most of her abilities, and by the end of the story she only relies on a few to get the job done. Also, if a character can do more than one thing that are all basically the same thing some of those should probably go (invisibility and camouflage, superspeed and teleportation, etc.).
Apply real-world science. If you try to make your depiction realistic, you’ll want to have an idea of how these abilities might work and how they might not. Of course, you should suspend disbelief for some things if they’re truly essential to your character, but others can be adapted. For Ace there are some powers that only work under the right circumstances, and others that her body rejects or that give her physical pain when she uses them. Most importantly, special strengths come with special weaknesses. Sensitive hearing means loud noises are more jarring or harmful, regeneration means metabolism speeds up and the person needs to eatas much as a body builder. Any superpower you pick out will have a drawback, I guarantee it; if not a physical one then a social one (I’ll get to that).
This scene from The Incredibles is an excellent demonstration of superpower drawbacks.
Consider how the character feels about all this power and why they obtained it in the first place.Ace was not born with abilities, but over time she chose certain powers for the purpose of defending herself or others. Some of her powers fade away when she stops using them, like any skill you fail to practice, and some abilities she just plain old refuses to use for personal reasons.
Some are too difficult or time-consuming for her to master, and some even trigger memories of her traumatic past thus she discards them.
This way she has a choice in the matter and her choice is not to bite off more than she can chew or what she doesn’t want in the first place.
How do other characters feel about all this power? Perhaps some or all of your character’s powers intimidate, frighten, or anger others in the story. One of Ace’s friends dislikes how unstoppable she is, and others are taken aback by some of the things she can do or how she looks when she does them. On the whole, she hides what she can do or picks small things to do instead of big things, downplaying her own power when necessary. How your supporting characters react to the force of nature that is your MC is the most important aspect of her power.
Here’s an example from the X-Men of how other characters might react.
Yes, Ace is a flawed concept and all the advice I just gave is only a patch kit for that flaw. However, overpowered characters continue to excite readers and viewers alike, so I would never suggest we dispense with them altogether. Just, when you’re getting a headache from how overwhelming your character is, it’s good to consider dialling it all back and focusing on the power of their personality instead.
Super apologize for taking so long to respond, and thanks for asking in the first place.
Wow. I have a pretty big YOI account on IG and that shit bang honestly makes me feel like shit. I dislike part of the YOI fandom so much right now- can't people just let other people ship/write/draw/etc. whatever they want? I thought the YOI fandom was all about accepting eachother's differences and stuff? It's just becoming toxic right now and that makes me feel so stupid for being part of the fandom..... Maybe I'd expexted too much from a fandom this big :/
anon.. that’s what huge fandom do.. there’s always some people who messed the
of the fandom. you just have to deal with it and move on. actually there is no such thing as “accepting each other’s differences and stuff” in every fandom. some people will support you, some will not, and some will stab you in your back go outside of your hiding and you’ll see the real hell of a fandom
that shitlist thing is just some people’s preference of enjoying yoi. but I think they’ve gone too far by dumping literally every artists and authors in yoi fandom into their shitlist. dumping them into the shitlist also lowkey calling those artists and authors’ works “shit”.
the amount of hardwork, backache, eye strain, digging for ideas, etc is tiring! they spent their days, weeks, months to create it so the fandom live. that’s…… if you ever create some artwork or fanfiction tho they won’t reblog if certain art or fanfiction contains Yuuri wash the dishes, Yuri cuddling with Otabek, Mafia AU, etc.
don’t worry people outside that pure innocent yoi circle will still reblog and kudos your works. the scale is like 1:100000000000000000000000000000000000
I see they also hate seeing yuri have a kind of “feelings” toward ANY characters. they prevent yuri to growing up. in their opinion Yuri has to be a baby agape who can only chewing on pirozhki.
WELL DUH maybe you have to see the leaked comic book Kubo-sensei wrote for Yuri’s Welcome to The Madness. it’s OFFICIAL that Yuri, who is written 15 y.o BEG TO COME ALONG WITH OTABEK TO THE CLUB. OTABEK DID NOT ALLOWED HIM BUT YURI INSIST! AND HE’S ANGRY BECAUSE BEKA LEFT HIM IN A BAD MOOD. HE LOVE WTTM BECAUSE IT’S EXPRESS HIS FEELINGS PERFECTLY. without those girly ballerina moves like in agape and in allegro appassionato he actually didn’t fond of.
in official Yuri is a rebel edgy teenager. he’s more mature than what you think. if Yuri was real, he would hate everyone who call him little kid.
the point is just keep doing what you like most. DRAW MORE, WRITE MORE. let those antis mind their own businesses. there’s still a ton of people in the fandom that will support you
It’s a hot summer day and your boyfriends have and unorthodox method of keeping you cool.

You told yourself that you would never fall in love again. That no mane would ever be worth the heartache and pain that came with relationships. But promises were meant to be broken as you met your match in Min Yoongi.
trying to think of a story for all of them… the fact that Shell-Shocked Morty’s entry talks about a “Grand Inter-Dimensional Morty War” makes me wonder if there’s an enormous faction of Mortys that have rebelled against all Ricks (and Citadel Ricks, naturally, send trained Mortys to fight back). Could the One True Morty be behind that uprising?
What do the Mortys think of it, if it were the case? Some are undoubtedly die-hard loyal to their Ricks, but others, I harken, dream of a day when they’ll be free of the tyranny of Ricks…
(I want my Evil Morty to explore all of it, but I think that’d be biting off more than I can chew.)
i feel like lance and pidge’s friendship isn’t appreciated enough so….. here are some lance ‘n pidge things that are def canon
pidge will seek lance out just to sit on him, even if there’s plenty of empty room on the couch
especially likes sitting on his back or on his legs if he’s laying down
always asking for facts about the other’s special interests (lance’s is fish, especially sharks. pidge’s are lizards and robotics)
sometimes when pidge is hyperfocusing lance will stick random things in her hair like pencils and paperclips
likewise, if lance is hyperfocusing pidge will put things in the hood of his jacket
constantly trying to give each other wet willies. CONSTANTLY.
pidge has set up really elaborate situations, sometimes involving allura and shiro pretending to need lance for something important, just to lead him into a wet willy trap
lance on the other hand will just chase her around and try to get hunk to grab her when she runs past
lance, every time he’s sitting on a couch with pidge: *sticks bare foot in her face* lick it
pidge sleepwalks sometimes and lance has gone into the kitchen looking for a snack at 2 AM and found her rifling around pointlessly in drawers
he just. quietly takes her by the arm and leads her back to her room
lance: hey pidge if i decide to [insert really bad idea] what’s the probability that [insert incredibly unlikely but positive outcome] pidge, not looking up from laptop: i’d say there’s a 0.5 to 1% chance of that working out in your favor lance, already doing the thing: good enough for me
lance and pidge both stim by chewing and they both LOVE chewing pencils
back in the garrison days lance would buy packs of pencils specifically for him and pidge to chew on while studying
they can get through a pack of twenty in like an hour
pidge also likes to stim by zipping and unzipping things, so sometimes lance will let her borrow his jacket so she can just zip away
lance dissociates when he gets very stressed and pidge is always the one to get him some cold water and stay with him until he starts coming back to reality (also to make sure he doesn’t do anything weird like get into his lion for no reason)
talk to each other about their families when they start missing them too much
