Useful posts on how to write comments for fanfics - [here] & [here]

On a personal note. I’ve met wonderful people throughout fandoms and by leaving comments. I’ve made great friends, some even on comment sections, as we shared our enthusiasm for the same story. 

People who like the same ships often hold similar character traits and life experiences; they’re people who would get you. The bonds in fandoms only strengthen when people meet other people as humans - and there are fantastic humans waiting to meet you. 

Leave a comment. :)

((Methodology For Data Collected

For this, I’ve used AO3, currently the most popular fanfiction website. 

I’ve taken the first ranked story in each ship, completed, rated by kudos - since bookmarks on AO3 can be set to private so the counters don’t reflect the real numbers - to reflect the stories that had the most positive feedback in their category.

For the comments, I’ve (falsely and intentionally) assumed the numbers represented are singular comments from singular, different users (tipping the scales in favor of the commenters). For Destiel, Johnlock and Spirk I had to pick the second story by kudos, since for the first the deviation error (assuming the author haven’t replied and there aren’t discussion threads included in the comments) was far too high for the ratio to be accurate, and my initial assumption couldn’t be applied. My apologies to the authors. 

The data was collected on May 2nd , 2016.))

Starco Week 3 Day 1 - Bad Boy and Princess AU

Sorry to be out from drawing for a while guys. School has been giving me a run for my money.

But never the less, I’m back to participate on @starcoweek3.

Here’s the first deviation about @fullertoons‘s Bad Boy and Princess AU.

It’s just a simple sketch but I think it’ll do enough.

Steven Universe #7 - “Car Trouble”

Here’s my third guest comic for the Steven Universe comic from boomstudios!  I’m really happy with how this one turned out, it’s the first one to deviate from the setting of Steven’s room and the stormy pallet was fun to work with.  Also I’m happy that among my guest comics I’ve managed to give focus to just about everyone in the main cast.

I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about my watercolor process, so I took more WIP photos in an attempt to show how I layer my colors.  It varies from project to project, but for this comic I started with highlights since the light source was important in this comic.  Then I laid down the base shadows, then the base colors, then darker shadows, and then final touches.  In summary, it’s a series of washes applied in a specific order.  But this is just my system and is by no means a flawless or the only way to use watercolors!  It’s the method I’ve found works best for me in making watercolor comics.

im still writing anime metas and you cant stop me: Ushijima and Oikawa edition

Um, so, I got an anon asking about my feelings on Ushi/Oi and I ended up writing a huge meta on what i think of Ushijima and Oikawa and Haikyuu in general instead of answering the question? Oops.

A lot of times, Ushijima is put forth in the fandom as being predatory, obsessed, creepy, and in some cases even abusive and possessive. A lot of this has to do with his character, and people mistaking his stoic, logical, blunt, and socially awkward to a fault behavior as being somehow antagonistic. Yes, his character is put forth as a daunting, intimidating character, and yes he says some unsavory things, but to be perceived as malicious?

I’d really have to argue against that and say that there’s a lot more to be taken from his character.

KANEKO’S CRIB NOTES XL: GOETIA GRAB BAG 2

Nearly two years and thirty cribs later, and KCN is coming at you again with another cadre of demons from the ever-fertile Lesser Key of Solomon, as interpreted by our pal Louis Breton, and then again by series artist and blog namesake Kazuma Kaneko (also our pal). And while our first set was chosen to highlight some of the more borderline cases out there, here we’ll be taking a look at a few of the less embellished designs in the roster… and Purson.

  1. OROBAS: Orobas is one of the closer calls here, and perhaps Kaneko simply thought it unnecessary to alter the functional simplicity of Breton’s original. He’s certainly more ecstatic in the latter portrayal, but otherwise we’re not looking at much divergence that couldn’t be chalked up to personal style: the guy is just sort of a horse-person, arms spread-eagle, and it works. 
  2. BARBATOS: Kaneko takes a few more liberties with Barbatos, but in service of accomplishing a more “demonic” look, replete with signifiers such as bat-like wings, curled horns, and a pointed devil’s tail. These have the effect of making the duke look a bit less like a gentleman beleaguered by a ghostly brass section, all while retaining his dapper style. 
  3. GEMORI: Gemori is likewise a near match, though she may not look it at first glance. Kaneko deviates little from Breton in terms of the meat and bones of the design, adjusting details of the dress (and perhaps the breed of camel employed) while maintaining distinctive cues such as the horns popping out from a headdress with trailing veil. 
  4. PURSON: Pruflas/Purson is perhaps not the most exciting fare the Goetia has to offer, but Kaneko’s additions of a garish palette and luxurious mane were apparently not the trappings of a compendium regular. A grasped serpent and bizarre helmet likewise enter the fray, but otherwise Breton’s template is left essentially untouched. 

Additional Breton Cribbin’: Melchom, Ukobach, Stolas, Belphegor/Beelzebub, Adramelech

My concept for an S4 Garnet! I had a nice set of drawings I wanted to do for all four boys that I haven’t had the time to make, so I figured just releasing an a concept-artish stand up of the character would have to do (especially since I had a few cosplayers asking me if I was planning to make one.. so sorry it’s so late!!) 

Garnet is my baby and also the one I have the most fun drawing, so he’s first! He always deviates the most from Ruby, and also feels the most like he has his own style rather than just a more masculine set of the same outfits that the girls have (Yin and Yang’s outfits are starting to look like they’d barely deviate at all haha). I debated a lot over whether to give him shorts, as they’re kind of his iconic thing- but I sort of feel as if Rooster Teeth was aiming for a more mature look for S4, and so I thought capris would be cute! I compensated for it with shorter sleeves instead of Ruby’s really cute im sad I couldn’t include it billowing top. I have to figure out how the lapels of his vest would work since I changed the material to leather at the last minute, but this is what I’m thinking of and I’m over-all really pleased with it! 

honestly I hate this whole elitist part of the fire emblem fandom like okay nintendo added accessibility to awakening and fates and the stories and characters took a different turn than the first few american games but THOSE first american games also deviated from the originals so just let people enjoy the series regardless of their entry point and let’s be happy that we have four (FOUR!) new games coming out over the next couple years

John/Paul AU Collab: AU Where Paul is a Ghost that haunts John’s house.

Paul starts by opening the door, letting it creak. When John doesn’t move, Paul drums his fingers along the wall, which is enough for John to lift his head and ask who’s there, even though he already knows. It’s a game by now. 

John’s sprawled out on his bed with a textbook, which Paul flips closed. It’s only then that John smiles. 

“You again?” he asks. His eyes flick from side to side, not sure where to look. It’s here that, for the first time, John deviates from their routine. “Why don’t you show yourself?”

Paul wants to, but he doesn’t know how, or if it’s even possible.

“Don’t go,” John says, sensing the shift in Paul’s mood. He seems to sense a lot about Paul, and maybe that’s why Paul trusts him when he holds out a hand. “Maybe this will help." 

When they touch, it’s like a burst of sunlight through a dark room. Paul realizes he can see his hand in John’s, and when he looks up, John is smiling at him.

He can’t remember feeling more alive

anonymous asked:

anime/manga recs?

OOOOH FASTEN YOUR SEATBELTS BECAUSE I’M ABOUT TO GO FULL FAN MODE 

note: i am absolutely terrible at summaries so please just read the description thats listed at the top of the link and hopefully give it a shot!

Manga:

- Pandora Hearts: THIS. MANGA. NEEDS. ATTENTION. i am not kidding you, this manga literally had one of the best plot twists and development i have ever seen. never have i been so emotionally invested in the fates of every character (even the villains) and it was just a roller coaster of feels. if anything on this list, please give this a read. it’ll be worth it i promise. AND THEN COME TALK TO ME ABOUT IT BECAUSE I’M SO SAD IT’S OVER. as for the anime adaptation, i’d say the manga definitely is the better option because it stops after one season and kinda deviates (ruins) the plot. 

- Haikyuu!!: i’ll be honest i usually stay clear of sports anime cause it’s not my cup of tea but i saw a gif of kagehina on my dash and couldn’t help but check it out and i’ve become haikyuu trash. it’s a story about volleyball, but it’s so much more than that. it’s about friendships, rivalries, strengths, weaknesses, and evolution. the big important matches keep you at the edge of your seat (the most recent chapter especially -.-) and the characters are all precious please read

- Noragami: my current obsession. SO good. in this world, gods exist and they possess “shinki”, which is the dead soul of a human that becomes the god’s weapon/ally. the story follows a god named Yato (precious yet badass cinnamon roll) who’s trying to get his name out there and not be forgotten by the world. a definite recommendation for those who like supernatural, action, and fluff-packed stories.

- Shokugeki no Soma: i love me some good cooking manga (cause i love food). takes place in a cooking academy, and the main character Soma is trying to get the first seat on the Elite Ten Council, which are comprised of the top ten students in the school. food just looks mouth-watering and aside from the… comedically over-the-top reactions characters give when tasting the delicious food, the manga is equal parts lighthearted cute/funny scenes with intense ones. 

- Attack on Titan: of course this manga’s gotta make it on the list, and it deserves it! i’m sure many of y’all already know about AOT so i won’t say much… go read it!!

- Platinum End: okay, this manga’s only got one chapter so far since it just started up, but i think it looks promising! about a human and an angel (as the summary would state bluntly lmfao) and i’m excited to see where this goes!

Anime:

- Ao No Exorcist: I actually haven’t read the manga yet, but the anime’s great. the main character’s the son of satan, yet is fighting in order to take down satan! i personally really liked how the anime played out, and it makes me sad that there’s only one season ;-; 

- Guilty Crown: all in all, it was a pretty well developed futuristic sci-fi anime. gave me feels ;-; the music in it is absolutely A+ though (LISTEN TO BIOS. AND DEPARTURES. AND EUTERPE.)

- Code Geass: this anime is absolutely fantastic with its plot development. great pace and characterization that’ll really keep you interested. it takes manipulation and strategic thinking to the next level. i’m usually not interested in mecha anime (until i saw Aldnoah.Zero), but please give it a watch first before disregarding it! 

- Haikyuu!!: YOOO THIS ANIME THOUGH. i love that it’s following the manga and not deviating from it because the manga is top notch. animation is great and the characters are just adorable <3

- Noragami: the two main male characters are voiced by Eren and Levi from AOT LOL i just thought that was hilarious and amazing. it’s currently in its second season, and although the first season finale kinda deviated from the manga, it was still pretty badass. the second season is back to following the manga again, and i’ll just say that stick around for the second season cause its GOLD. yato and yukine are precious and i love them very much

- Attack on Titan: SPEAKING OF EREN/LEVI… animation is amazing, plot is amazing, i think the second season should be coming out soon so AHH. this anime’s a given, seeing as how popular it is (for good reason too)

My interpretation of the 4 walls MV

- In the beginning, the four girls are on their own, all occupying the same space but in different dimensions 

- Everything they do is in sync and that holds the dimensions together

- But then the first deviation or crack in space-time is when Amber freezes and drops the cup that she was supposed to place on the counter 

- In Krystal’s dimension, she did place her cup on her counter there but because Amber went out of sync, the cup that was supposed to be there vanishes when she pours the water. Because it’s broken on Amber’s floor in her dimension. 

- Because the crack in space-time has now reached Krystal, she freezes too and that causes the water that she was pouring to spill onto the floor 

- This causes water to manifest in Vic’s dimension when there was previously none so she slips and falls on it 

- The way I look at it, when the girls go out of sync, they freeze but the world around them continues to move like Amber’s cup that continued to fall and Krystal water that continued to flow 

- Anyway, moving on to the woods 

- The woods is an inter-dimensional space that connects the dimensions together (think The Woods Between The Worlds in Narnia’s The Magician’s Nephew) 

 - This is where they’re able to encounter each other but everything is still just slightly out of sync with each other 

- This is why no one else is moving when they find each other 

- Because they’re looking through the cracks

- When Luna steps on Amber’s broken cup, I think this is when she started to figure it out (imo, Luna was the first to figure things out) 

- I think the pond that Krystal fell in caused some sort of time-space distortion because when Vic/Luna surfaced from the bath, it seems to be the night before (broke down the 4 walls of the dimension barriers) 

- When they wake up, the four dimensions have melded together so they’re all running to catch the cup before it falls to prevent the crack from existing in the first place 

- You can see it’s Luna who starts running but then Amber is also shown running but it’s Vic who is shown to catch the cup from past!Amber 

Mirroring:

 - There also seems to be a Vic/Luna and Amber/Krystal mirror where the pairings are more closely connected (like it was speculated when the teasers came out) 

- Amber and Krystal’s cup/water scene directly connects with each other but this deviation had no effect on Luna and Victoria until Vic slipped on the water 

- Luna was not the person who fell, Vic was, but later, it shows Luna frozen while falling when Amber finds her 

- Luna and Vic are also the only two people shown in the bathtub mirroring each other 

- Krystal’s connection is also shown to be weaker with Luna and Vic because she sees this scene in the pond instead of the bathtub

- Mirror. They mirror each other. 

My first deviation! Also my first work of digital art. I’m so proud! Who would’ve thought it would be spideypool? HeroesAtWar is my deviant art account, Fyi :)

Advice: Solving the Unsolvable Conflict

Anonymous asked:

hi! so i finished most of my nanowrimo novel but i’m really struggling with the ending now. i had an outline when i started but the novel has changed so much as i wrote that the ending i had originally doesn’t really fit and i almost feel like my conflict has no real solution now. i’ve tried giving my novel space and i still feel just as lost. any advice to solving a conflict that seems unsolvable? thanks!


There are a lot of different things you can try, though not all are meant to yield fast results:

1) Take some time away. I mean, a lot of time away.

I know you said you’ve already done this, but sometimes you have to step away from a project for more than a few weeks or a month. As much as it sucks, sometimes a story just has to percolate for a long time so that your brain can find a way around the problem. In the meantime, you can move onto a new project, and occasionally just getting yourself invested in another project is enough to grease your wheels. I think just about every time I step away from a project and move onto something new, I’ll suddenly get a bunch of ideas pertaining to the old project. And if this works for you, it doesn’t mean you have to drop everything and run back to the old project. Just write down any ideas or solutions that come to you, then get back to that project after you finish your new WIP. It’s not ideal, but that’s what it takes sometimes.

2) Brainstorm.

This may seem like a bit of a “no brainer,” but I think sometimes younger and newer writers underestimate the amount of time that writers spend fixated on a blank page, staring at the walls, gazing out the window, pacing around the room, typing something, backspacing over it, typing something new, backspacing over that… this idea that stories should pour like fluid from our fingertips is a myth. Stories are usually written in fits and starts. In the gaps there’s a lot of thinking–really really deep thinking, and that can be hard to do. But, sometimes you just have to grab yourself a drink and head out into the backyard or take a long walk or a drive, and just really think about the problem and all the different ways you could possibly solve it. Sometimes you’ll make a breakthrough.

3) Employ tools.

There are actually a lot of great tools for writers that can help when you’ve hit an obstacle. Online plot generators can throw out some crazy ideas that might get your wheels turning. The Writer Emergency Pack, Inspiration Dice, The Writer’s Toolbox, and The Storymatic are just some of the handy and affordable tools out there that use prompts and ideas to help you think through parts of your story in ways that might never have occurred to you before.

4) Do something crazy.

So, your character is standing on a figurative cliff ledge overlooking the chasm of your story’s unsolvable conflict. What you’re looking to do is build a bridge or find some other way over that chasm, right? Well, what if something else happens instead? What if your character hears a voice behind him and he turns around to see his long lost sibling that he thought was dead? What if he suddenly passes out and wakes up in a strange place? What if there’s a sudden earthquake and he has to start looking for survivors? Although it may seem crazy and counter-intuitive, sometimes doing something crazy will help you find a way through your conflict that you’d never imagined.

5) Work backwards.

If you know how your story is going to end, try working backwards from the last thing that happens, going all the way back to the point where you got stuck. Starting with the very last thing that happens, think about what happens (or what should happen) before it to get to that point. So, if the story ends with your character waking up in a hospital after being rescued from an alien spaceship, what’s the thing that happens right before that gets the reader (and the character) to that very moment? Perhaps it is the character being found face down in a field by another character. What happens before that? A flash of light in the night interrupts a raucous high school party in the middle of nowhere. What happens before that? Etc. Very often, coming at the problem from this unexpected angle allows you to pave the way in reverse, helping you to see connections you might not notice going forward.

6) Stop, drop, and rewrite.

This is an absolute last resort, but sometimes–if all else fails–you just have to go back to the beginning and start again. This isn’t as much of a step backward as it might sound. After all, the editing process is really about writing and rewriting anyway. You’re not starting over with a first draft. You’re just starting a second draft from an unfinished first draft. This can be especially helpful when–as in your case–the first draft deviated so far from what was planned that the original solution no longer works. The reason this can be really important (and helpful) in your situation is because you essentially set out to build a motorcycle and ended up building a car. A lot of the basic parts may be the same or similar, but if you want finish building your car, you need to go back and replace all the motorcycle parts with actual car parts. That’s basically what you’re doing when you go back and rewrite. You’re pulling apart all the pieces, using what you can, scrapping what you can’t, and replacing whatever you need to, knowing what you know about how your story has changed. Sometimes, re-building your story in this way is the only way you can get through a conflict that seems completely unsolvable. 

Best of luck to you!
