different superpowers

My LGBTQIA family. I see each and every one of you. The things that make us different, those are our superpowers. Every day when you walk out the door and put on your imaginary cape, go out there and conquer the world, because the world would not be as beautiful as it is if we weren’t in it. And for everybody out there that showed us so much love. Thank you for embracing a little Indian boy from South Carolina and a little queer Black girl from the South side of Chicago. We appreciate it more than you could ever know.

So now Secret Empire has revealed its Shyamalan Twist and given the readers a Good Guy Steve Rogers as well as Hydra Cap, and the kinds of dickbags who, when this whole bullshit began were dismissing people’s complaints with “oh come on, don’t you know how comics works, it’s all going to be put back at the end, blah blah blah…” are crowing I-Told-You-So’s.

But here’s the thing:

Yeah, fucknuts.  We always knew this.

Last night Master of None writer Lena Waithe became the FIRST African-American woman to win an Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy series. She was the only female writer nominated in this category this year. and the first black woman ever nominated in this category for the Emmys.  

The last time any woman won in this category was Tina Fey for one of 30 Rock’s final episodes in 2013. Only one other woman writer was nominated at the Emmys this year - Westworld’s Lisa Joy - who lost to The Handmaid’s Tale Bruce Miller. 

so i’m reading the book blue remembered earth by alastair reynolds. it’s such a complicated piece of science fiction with intricate detailing of science fact. it’s just so obvious that the author was an astrophysicist. it’s evident that he knows his stuff and every passage is so eager to share the knowledge that he’s accumulated.

Writing Large Casts of Characters

Okay, so it came to my attention recently that not all writers write with gigantuan casts of characters like I do. So I thought I’d share my experiences with this kind of writing and hopefully help some people out?

Quick summary: I’ve got three different stories that are my main three works. My main novel is pretty much finalized at 96K words, a sci-fi story with eight main characters (a crazy scientist and her daughter are the two real mains, but all the other characters play their roles as well). 
I have a second story that I wrote for NaNoWriMo 2016 that I have since not polished like at all that’s at 52K. I have managed my characters a bit better this time, but there’s still lots: main hero named Ash, her partner Zack, Satan, and the head of T.R.E.E. Plus, you know…various demon characters. It may not sound like a lot, but I have planned this to be a seven book series so I will be working with all them a lot
Finally, I have a story that follows Emma Walker as she travels the USA on a one-woman Humans of New York-esque adventure. That means she talks to people and listens to their stories so she can tell them on her blog. So, you see, I have to create a significant amount of characters for her to talk to; the story is kind of at a standstill right now around 40K.

The key to keeping all your characters straight is, of course, making them all unique. For my sci-fi story, each character has a different superpower. In my NaNo project, half the characters are demons, skeletons, etc. Stories Told For Free gives every character some sort of trait that their story goes off of (family members, personal fears, freckles). 

But what I want to recommend to you is that you make your characters unique to the reader. As the writer, you have the ability to go back and fact-check and look back to see what you wrote. Do it shamelessly; consistency is important. 
But making them unique to your reader takes a bit more thinking. You have to think of things from a reader standpoint. What will make readers go, “Oh, yeah, that guy, I remember that guy.” ?

A few things:
Their relationship to the other characters / your main. If there is a side character never has a word of dialogue but your main’s entire internal dialogue whenever they’re around is, That kid bullied me in fifth grade, I haven’t talked to them in six years, I still remember how they made me cry on the first day of school then we are going to remember them.
Physical features. An oldie but a goodie. One of my characters in the sci-fi novel has burn scars up and down his arms; he controls fire. Another (a telekinetic) has long, thin fingers. See, their powers aren’t enough–although they certainly help. You have to be sure to develop your characters fully, and physical features are part of that.
Accents and catchphrases. I’ve just recently been working on finetuning my dialogue, and let me tell you: it makes a WORLD of difference in improving your narration. Apostrophes and repetition are really tiny details, but it can really capture your reader’s attention and spark memories.
Their impact on your characters / your main. The people that Emma Walker talks to always leave some sort of impact on her, they leave some memory of themselves in her mind. If written correctly, the memories I give my character will be the same memories that stick in my reader’s mind.
Objects that your reader can associate with that character. One of my sci-fi characters fights with a kitchen knife. Random characters in Stories Told for Free may have a charm bracelet, or a meaningful tattoo. Each demon in my NaNo project has a different combination of skin color and scale color. 

These are just a few ways that you can further develop your individual characters if you are writing a ton of them. I wish you all the luck in the world, and I hope this helped! Happy writing.

Hans Rosling doesn’t have time for your shit. Now with English subs.

alright so about rachel’s scream

The way it was set up made me think, and made me think hard.

I think the end of episode 1 was the beginning of rachel’s end. what we got to see wasn’t the before the storm equivalent of max taking the butterfly photo- it was the equivalent of her ripping it apart. there are a few things that stood out to me in ep 1, mainly

1. rachel knows everything, somehow, even things she couldn’t have seen. chloe getting involved in the schoolyard fight despite being inside, chloe getting past the bouncer despite rachel clearly being pictured in the crowd just moments later when chloe talks to frank, knowing about the schoolyard fight despite being inside and always being with chloe afterwards, meaning she can’t have heard it from someone else.

2. rachel also takes photos. not as many as max, but they do exist and they’re mostly taken at key points where it could technically be possible for her to turn back time. I’ll come back to this.

3. judging from what we know about rachel in life is strange, it seems she’s almost two people at times, right? if her bond is this strong with chloe now, why would she tell frank he’s the only one who gets her?

4. frank supposedly changes at some point between ep1 of before the storm and ep 1 of life is strange. becomes softer somehow. 

5. the soundtrack in the ending of life is strange, especially the version where you sacrifice chloe. I recognized it from another show, but I’ll get back to that, too.

6. the play. I used sparknotes because I’m too impatient for anything else.

7. apparently the controller shakes when she screams if you play on console? thanks to @aggressivelybiisexual for blowing my mind and breaking my heart by telling me this. that definitely settles the question of a potential supernatural power for me- it’s clear that it is one, we just don’t know what and how.

now, onto the meta ramble.

Congratulations to Lena Waith on becoming the first black woman ever to win an Emmy for comedy writing!

“She also called out her “family” in the LGBTQIA community. “I see each and every one of you,” Waithe said. “The things that make us different, those are our superpowers. Every day when you walk out the door, put on your imaginary cape and go out there and conquer the world because the world would not be as beautiful as it is without us in it.” Source

boopymooplier  asked:

Do you have any Marvin the Magnificent hcs?

i can see what i can whip up! 💛

  • i feel like marvin is actually a pretty damn powerful sorcerer, but performs simple tricks as just a cover.
  • marvin’s powers vary from teleportation and levitation, to simple card tricks and pulling roses out of his sleeves.
  • marvin is actually a pretty chill guy but is easily excitable, but can often become a little scatterbrained; sometimes forgetting where important things like his wand and hat are.
  • he has a white rabbit named lucky. 
  • the one magic ability that marvin wished he had was to be able to grant wishes like a genie.
  • there are some times when marvin just watches the other of jack’s egos interact with each other, sometimes being moved to tears because he finally found a place where he belonged and felt comfortable in.
  • marvin dreams of owning his own magic show, where people from all over the world would come and see his abilities. schneeplestein cheers that he’ll one of the first to buy a ticket.
  • marvin and jackieboy-man tend to get into playful arguments sometimes, discussing the difference between magic and superpowers. there’s no tension between them, they’re just genuinely curious about each other and practice with each other to strengthen their abilities.
  • marvin doesn’t wear his mask all the time like jackieboy-man does. he typically wears it while he’s performing or to show off. his cape, however, is more important since it is magical as well, allowing him to vanish into thin air.
  • one of marvin’s favorite things about magic is that he can make it snow anywhere. inside, outside, on the beach, in the shower, wherever.

Chloe deserves character development and redemption and analysis and I won’t let anyone tell me otherwise.

I’ve found it hard to express why Chloe is one of my favorite characters, but I’ve had a habit of picking characters that seem to be vindictive without true motivation.

Side characters, especially ones that tend to not receive development, gather my attention because of my love of creation and headcannons. With ChloNathWeek2K17 starting, something in me decided to finally post this thing I sent a friend forever ago.

Miraculous Ladybug has a lot of things that are notable — unique passions in characters, typical comical wit, amazing best friends/supporting cast, different superpowers, childish but captivating plot, and side character development. I admire that. But for all the episodes where Chloe’s the cause of the akuma, an unsaid ally to Hawkmoth, she’s gain barely any (if at all) development in the series.

Isn’t it important to note that Chloe’s mom has been just as absent as Adrien’s? There’s supposed to be more revealed come the future, according to the wiki, but it’s otherwise blank.

Adrien’s clearly suffering from a neglectful father, and who’s to say, in some way, that Chloe isn’t, as well? Adrien’s living a much more controlled life, leaving him to be more submissive and seeking freedom. Chloe’s been given anything she wants because her dad’s mayor — busy, occupied, public figure… giving his daughter anything she desires just to get her out of the way for a little bit might be substantial.

And even if she wasn’t neglected, I’ll never stop believing she was at least a little attention deprived.

Adrien could be more than her supposed best friend and crush; he could be the only one she could somewhat relate to.

I get that this isn’t entirely accurate, by from what I’ve noticed and gathered of my time watching MLB months ago, this was what I took to believing.

Aziz Ansari is an American Actor, Comedian, and Filmmaker with Indian descent. From his stand-up tours & specials; to acting in feature films and TV shows; to releasing his first book Modern Romance: An Investigation in 2015; to creating, writing, and starring in the critically acclaimed Netflix series Masters of None; Ansari has definitely made a mark in the entertainment industry. His role as Tom Haverford on the NBC series Parks & Recreation received praise from critics including Entertainment Weekly naming him one of 2009’s “Breakout TV Stars.” In 2016, Ansari’s performance as Dev on Master of None landed him a nomination for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor. The series itself received four Emmy nominations last year, which led to Ansari and his co-creator Alan Yang winning the Emmy for Outstanding Writing. Last night at the 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, Ansari won his second Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series last night alongside Lena Waithe for their episode titled “Thanksgiving.” Waithe was the first black woman nominated in that Emmy category and made history by becoming the first black woman to win! Lena Waithe is an American Actress, Producer, and Screenwriter. She realized she wanted to be a TV writer at the age of seven and received strong family support from her single mother and grandmother. Waithe has written on shows such Fox’s Bones, Nickelodeon’s How to Rock, and the 2013 web series Hello Cupid. She also served as the producer on the 2014 film Dear White People. Waithe’s role as Denise on Master of None became an instant fan favorite and is inspired by her real life. She told Hollywood Reporter that the episode started with Ansari simply asking her about her coming out story,“It’s a beautiful tribute to my family, to black women everywhere, to black matriarchs. It’s just such a wonderful ode to my childhood and my growing up and my evolution as a woman and being comfortable with myself.” Last night, she delivered a powerful message to her ‘LGBTQIA’ family, "I see each and every one of you.The things that make us different – those are our superpowers.” ❤️😍❤️
