“I never meant to fall in love with him. In fact I meant the complete opposite. Every single fibre of my body told be to keep Charles Price at arms length and not let him any closer, thats what a smart girl would do. I was always a smart girl, but around Charles I become notoriously dumb. I got in far too many fights, and on more bad sides than I could count courtesy of my inability to refuse him. But if I said I regretted it, I’d be a liar too, because I don’t. Despite what everyone thinks of him and the way I behave around him, he’s never done much but build me up and accepted the ugliest, pettiest parts of me. He hasn’t tried to change them, nor I his. It was sort of a silent agreement to take it or leave it. But in spite of our little deal, I think we’ve become better people in the end, I’m no longer a door mat, and he’s not as awful to people as before, or at least I think so. He made good with Eric and proved he was every bit as capable of being the man I always knew he could be. He’s the first and only man I have ever loved, something that not mean much to those that fall quickly in and out of love. But for someone like me, who always thought that a relationship was like stepping into a cage and handing a man the key to my freedom, I sure tangled myself up in it. Completely and whole heartedly.”

I fell in love the way you fall asleep, slowly and then all at once.

“There’s far too many reasons as to why I care for him as much as I do, some that a vomit inducing and others that may outsell fifty shades of grey on the shelves. But more than anything it’s because he accepts me where none of the others did. He doesn’t force my behaviour or expect me to be his white picket fence ending. He’s never complained about my ambition or controlling nature. Loving him has been one of the most exciting things I’ve done so far, perhaps because loving some one like Charles is like climbing in a cage with an angry bear, but it was entirely consuming, intoxicating, and I hope that is a feeling that never goes away. My mother always taught me that you should love the person that makes you glad that you’re alive, for once I’m glad I actually listened.”

And I guess I realised in that moment that I really did love her. 
Because there was nothing to gain and that didn't matter.
Perfect For Me
Ron Pope
Perfect For Me
You sit in the bathroom and you paint your toes
I sit on the bed right now and I sing you a song
It's not always easy, but somehow our love stays strong
If I can make you happy, then this is where I belong

And I'd just like to say
I thank god that you're here with me
And I know you too well to say that you're perfect
But you'll see, oh my sweet love, you're perfect for me

I know all your secrets, and you know all of mine
You're always here to hold me up when I'm losing my mind
I wish that I was stronger so that I had more to give
I'll share everything I have and we'll find a way to live

Even after all this time, nothing else I ever find
In this whole wide world can shake me like you do
Its true that something so sublime that there aren't words yet to describe
The beauty of this life I've made with you

And I'd just like to say
I thank god that you're here with me
And I know you too well to say you're perfect
But you'll see oh my sweet love you're perfect for me
And I know you too well to say you're perfect
But you'll see of my sweet love you're perfect
Oh my love I swear you're perfect
Yes I promise, you're perfect for me

In my experience, good storytelling is actually best learned through what not to do. Really learn to criticize—not hate—everything you consume. When something is bad, ask yourself why is it bad, and try to come up with different ways it could’ve been improved, even if it’s just for thought exercises (who knows? You may even inspire yourself a really good idea for a story too). If it’s already good, criticize it anyway, because then it teaches you how to always look more deeply in general and teaches you to think.


THIS. I mean the general philosophy goes for a lot of things as well…like how life in general is kind of “well there’s no one RIGHT way to live it but there’s are lot of obviously wrong ways!” Mostly though it is very, very applicable to what I’m trying to figure out with storytelling– I think you are all seeing how much I’m struggling with CODA and how it’s a lot of “WELL that didn’t work out LET’S TRY THIS INSTEAD!!” And a lot of criticism is…I have learned that I don’t have to agree with the exact detail of criticism but to pay attention because the criticisms are usually dead-on in what I need to work on. As in not the “how to change” necessarily, because that tend to vary too much between people, but “what to change”. Similarly I’m trying to learn look at the stories that I’m reading / watching and trying to figure out why somethings are really good and others are really terrible. It’s an on-going process.


While everyone’s watching the villager from Animal Crossing curb stomp Link I’ll be playing this game!

Me and Chira have been joking for a bit about how That Which Wills, our sexy magical girl/boy comic, would make a great fighting game. Because zodiac magical girls would be AMAZING in a fighting game. So when I saw the amazing Suzanne was taking animated pixel art commissions (GO CHECK THIS OUT SHE IS AMAZING) I jumped right on it and she was more than happy to oblige!

So here is Liam, doing the classic heel bob you get in all fighting games. FOR CHIRA, BECAUSE I THOUGHT SHE MIGHT ENJOY SEEING LIAM READY TO REEK SOME ROSE PETAL HELL ON THE ENEMY.

Also this. Roommate’s listening to Chira’s stream– she’s got remarkable taste, her.
