Do you ever question yourself if you're actually viewing the show correctly?! I'm mostly joking, but I admit sometimes when I read several different sides of the fandom manipulating canon in their favor, I'm like "do we do that too?!". Some of them are pretty damn confident in their interpretations and it just baffles me. I guess I also just want to make sure I never get to that point, romanticize or make justifications and excuses for my faves mistakes. Sorry, I'm all over the place with this!!
No, I never question it. LOL. Ever.
Here’s the thing – I don’t think there’s a right or wrong interpretation of a storyline. But there’s only ONE interpretation that can be canon. Does that make sense?
Look, I’m nowhere near perfect but, I know Once Upon a Time. It’s not a hard show to read and predict and figure out. I don’t know how people see romantic feelings between Emma & Regina. I don’t know how people see Hook as abusive, etc. etc. – but they’re welcome to feel that way if that’s the way they choose to see things. Everyone has a right to an opinion but – I know for a fact that’s not what this show is telling us in canon and that is further backed up by writer & actor comments.
Just b/c you forgive your fave for their mistakes and accept them as is - baggage, flaws and all – doesn’t mean you are making justifications or excuses. The truth is, every character on this show is flawed and this story is about them finding love and family and acceptance and peace despite those flaws and learning from them and trying to be better. It’s why I will never understand the “your fav is worse than my fav” arguments. They’re pointless. All of these characters, the good and the bad, have fucked up royally at some point and are all trying to be the best version of themselves.
I think it’s perfectly reasonable to try and be self aware to make sure you aren’t stooping to the levels of fans who have completely lost sight of what is happening in canon on this show – but if canon consistently proves you right and so do the actors and creators then, you don’t have anything to worry about.
So I’m pretty sure I can’t get my art-self together enough to do a proper webcomic, but I’m still kicking around the idea of doing like…a fanfic where I release ‘episodes’ on a weekly (or whatever) basis and try to run my own ‘season’, ‘cause I have so many ideas and want to diverge from canon and I don’t know i’m also kind of having the world’s most fretful night sooooo maybe ignore me.
No one asked for my advice on writing, but here’s my advice on writing:
If you want to improve your writing, the thing that you must absolutely do is //read.// Like a lot. Both good and bad shit. The good shit will show you what what works in writing, and the bad shit will show you what doesn’t. Figure out what works for /you./
Read from a broad amount of genres; read things that you wouldn’t normally pick up. Be open minded. Figure out what you enjoy the most.
Play around, be experimental. Vary the way you construct sentences. Practice.
The difference between the perfect word and the almost perfect word is huge, so be considerate of that.
Don’t be too hard on yourself, or whatever piece you’re working on will just rot away forever.
And most important of all, you gotta care about what you’re writing about.
Here it is! My small but oh so time
consuming Iwaoi comic! As you may notice, I have experimented a bit with
lineless art, colors and such. The theme isn’t exactly new for these
two, but I felt that I have to start at the basics to get to know them!
(I feel like I still have a bit left to a good characterization, but I’ll be getting there.) I hope you like it!
so i started doing this way back in 2012 for up all night, and seeing as no one knows when they’re going back on tour i thought i’d just drop this here for people to have, so yeah. here’s ~mostly all of 1d’s concerts.
