The 1 Element Your Flawed Character MUST HAVE

If you’re a reader, you’ve probably experienced this before: you pick up a book, it seems pretty interesting, you nonchalantly decide to read it – “whatever, might be good” – and then … 

A paperback explodes life as you know it.  

Encountering a book like this can give life sudden clarity, it can change the way you look at the world, it can help you overcome something and grow, it can give you new purpose, it can inspire you to change your life, it can transform your future. By the time you’ve finished that book, it has become a part of your life – and will probably remain that way forever. (*Holds up my battered copy of Narnia as evidence*)

This magical experience is pretty much the ultimate goal for a reader. But if you’re a reader AND a writer, the fulfilling moment is inevitably marred by one depressing thought:  

“I’ll never write anything that good.”  

To which I say:

I beg to differ, little discouraging voice. With dedication and persistence, anyone can write a story that will be deeply meaningful to a reader. 

The trick? It needs to be deeply meaningful to the writer first. 

If a writer is going to give a reader a life-altering piece of knowledge, that means the writer already has that knowledge to give. We have all experienced things worthy of a story. We are all characters, journeying through arc after arc, becoming better or worse. From living these stories, we learn and see things more clearly, just as protagonists do. Which means we have something to say, something to write about, something to give. 

But to do so, we have to shoot for art.

The word art seems terribly vague, unattainable, and intimidating. But I don’t think it has to be. By “art” I’m going by the definitions given in two of my favorites quotes about writing (writing is art, so these apply): 

“Art is born when the temporary touches the eternal.” – G K  Chesterton

and

“…It is an art. It is the best of all possible art, a finite picture of the infinite.” – N D Wilson  

Both quotes state the same thing, in different ways. Art is about depicting and communicating something true, something universal, something everlasting about life and humanity, through something tangibly created. A definition which sounds an awful lot like the definition of metaphor: “a thing regarded as representative or symbolic of something else, especially something abstract.” Which sounds a lot like storytelling, because story IS metaphor. It’s life, condensed and magnified, all of its components there for a specific reason – to represent and convey some deeper meaning. So storytelling is naturally suited to being art. Which is good news for writers.

But it can also mean trouble. Storytelling is proven to be one of the most powerful teaching methods there is; a story actually has the power to get into someone’s head and heart and change everything, because to a reader’s mind the events on the page are actually happening. They’re living another life, a life that seeks to prove whatever the author wants to say. So writers have a responsibility to make sure the meaning of their story is true, morally and logically. 

BUT HOW DOES THIS ALL RELATE TO THE MAIN CHARACTER?!

Your main character is flawed, both in ways that only hurt themselves, and in ways that hurt others. These flaws are causing them to ruin their own lives. If they don’t awaken to this unwelcome truth about themselves, they will be lost. What happens to them over the course of the story, as they go after their singular goal, is going to apply pressure to these flaws until someone new – and most of the time, better – is made. The journey will teach them something, and that knowledge will enable them to overcome their weaknesses and forge a better life. 

And I bet you can guess what that story will teach them. That thing that is deeply meaningful for you, so meaningful you want to share it with readers? Yup, that’s what your main character is going to learn.

It’s going to be the SOLUTION to their inner problems. When it comes to characters, the meaning can be wrestled into three parts, adding up into one concise sentence. 

1) To achieve *a better state of being*

2) One must *moral and mental requirement*

3) Or else *the inner stakes*

To see how this works, let’s look at a fairy tale, the most straightforward example of this concept: 

Let’s see Cinderella (the live-action 2015 version). 

The meaning of the movie is summed up in this scene, and the story seeks to prove it throughout: 

“Have courage and be kind… It has power, more than you know. And magic.”

The story revolves around this notion, and everything seeks to represent it and prove it, in true Fairy Tale fashion.  

So in one line, that Ella’s arc proves: To achieve victory over abusers, one must hold onto their courage, kindness, and goodness no matter what – or else succumb and turn into someone like them. 

Exemplified in her last words to her stepmother, that truly defeat her forevermore:

So! Constructing these sentences can help give our flawed characters a destination to motor towards. Which makes writing their arcs much easier. And maybe we can construct a character arc and story that will become one of those magical reading experiences for a reader. And then, maybe one day, we’ll get letters from our reader, telling us exactly what our stories gave them and how it has saved their life in some small way (or maybe not so small way.) 

If finding a book like this is ultimate goal of a reader, I think getting a letter like that is the ultimate goal for a writer. 

Well, there’s my motivation. Time to go figure out what the heck I want my book to say. 

anonymous asked:

So I'm not trying to be ignorant, but can you talk about why white people cant say g*psy? I saw that while reading a few tagged posts, but I've never known it was bad.

This is out of our wheelhouse, so I’m going to point you towards a few Rromani bloggers who’ve addressed the issue.

if you think gypsy is not a slur 

I’m sorry, but no you cannot & never will you be. 

It’s a slur: a Rromani woman’s thoughts on the word “Gypsy”.

Hello Followers,
thank you for your patience once again. Here is another one and this time I took 41-year (well, he is 43/44 in this one) old Mr. Frye to the test. I mean, he needs love, too. And he is such a handsome man and had to go through a lot.

I hope you will enjoy this piece of Fiction. I do not have any knowledge about the bathing back in Victorian England. I googled but didn’t find enough or maybe I did not dig deep enough. (I actually just googled again to not look like a complete idiot in front of you and added a few things, heh)

A happy Fryeday to all of you. I hope my english followers are all okay + their families and friends after what had happened.

 Oh lordy~~ We’ve been writing this for awhile now, and can I say- I loved writing this. 🙈🙈 This is the first of many, many, collaborated oneshots **That we shall always drop without warning** with Bun. I also wasn’t expecting it to be a part of the ‘How To Love Your Best Friend’ series, but it matches the other stories….Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this exceptionally long Taehyung fic (the longest I’ve ever written) I hope to hear what you guys thought about it~💕💕
My note: Oh my god guys it’s finally done AAAAAAA I had so much fun co-writing this with Kitten this is the angstiest and probably the longest thing I’ve ever written in my LIFE. Its a bit of a mess but a BEAUTIFUL MESS and I love it nonetheless. I hope you enjoy this incredibly long fic, as like Kitten said it’s the first of many other collabs to come 🙌 (also gonna drop those without warning lmao💕). Enjoy!!

The night air was chilly as you left the house through the front door, yet you could hardly feel it. Feet beginning to take you on the familiar path home, the only thing you could focus on was how it felt to have your heart break for the millionth time this month. It was nothing new, you should be used to it by now, but the hurt was fresh everytime. A single tear fell as you neared your home and you hastily wiped it away. You wished you didn’t have to feel this pain. You wished you didn’t have to suffer like this. You wished you’d never fallen in love with your best friend Kim Taehyung.

Coffee had kept you awake through college and then into the real world afterwards. It was a go to for late nights spent in front of your computer or notepad when ideas never stopped flowing or were never there at all. Which is why Hoseok loves finding new coffee shops to bring you to. He says that if coffee makes you happy, then he’ll buy you it every day. Even though Hoseok’s bubbly personality has never needed the caffeine as you do, he loves getting you the addicting beverage.  

”So, there’s this one shop near your favorite library up the street. Apparently a lot of college kids like it so I thought I’d try to bring you early in case it gets busy. I know how you feel about crowds.” Hoseok wraps a scarf around your neck. It’s so thick you could hide your entire face in it if you wanted. “You have to stay warm, I don’t want you to get sick especially after being out in the rain.”

It’s been two weeks but Hoseok is still worrying over your health. Heat rises in your cheeks and you look down, view of the floor blocked from the humongous scarf. You feel lucky to have Hoseok, who takes care of you even when you don’t deserve it. With a proud smile, Hoseok steps back, admiring his work. You’re practically a marshmallow in the huge coat and hat he’s put on you. But you’re warm, inside and out, so you thank Hoseok and make your way into the living room.

anonymous asked:

How about reader from our world where tfp is a show, got sucked into a portal and somehow ended up in team prime base? The bots were doing their thing than a portal appear, dropping reader on the base ground, and left. How does each tfp bot react? All of them witness it. No one can say they didn't see it! I hope this is okay

(I respect your thought process, and I want to get mad, but that’s Heaven (sadly)!)

Optimus

  • He waits to see what falls before pulling any blasters, but everyone watches and waits as he walks up to you when the portal closes and asks if you’re alright?
  • *insert fan screaming in terror*

Ratchet

  • *high pitched squeal* “WHAT THE FRAGGG-!!!”
  • (You pretty much just both scream in unison.)
  • He screamed.
  • He wasn’t ready.
  • It was so out of nowhere.
  • He screamed like a little girl, but everyone was as freaked as he was so they couldn’t laugh.

Bumblebee

  • “eeEEEep!” he jumped.
  • He’ll admit he jumped.
  • He’s so comfortable at the base and it was out of nowhere.

Arcee

  • Eyes widen and she pulls a blaster, but other than that no outward reaction. 

Bulkhead

  • oH sHIT!
  • Blasters out and he’d ready to rumble if it’s the cons… somehow.
  • But then you fly out and wait. What? 

Wheeljack

  • Oh, slag …?
  • He has mixed feeling.
  • It was cool to see the portal open up (it wasn’t a ground bridge I take it???),b ut like a human? His human friend has earned her stripes, but still.
  • “Slag, kid, are you alright?”

Smokescreen

  • “Cool!” shuddup Smokey this is not ‘cool’.

Ultra Magnus

  • He’s frozen in confusion.
  • What.
  • The slag.
  • Was that?

anonymous asked:

Is getting a Sak Yant tattoo by a buddhist monk in a temple considered cultural appropriation?

Here are some (but not all) of the questions that you need to be able to answer honestly before a person should consider this step:

Are you Buddhist? Do you specifically follow the tenets of Cambodian and Thai Buddhism? Do you know Thai or Khmer, and can speak with the monks about the rules you must follow after getting the tattoo? If you are white, have you taken part in Thai or Cambodian religious customs and grappled with your place in a history of Westerners fucking with southeast Asian politics and culture? Similarly, if you are white, have you grappled with the history of degradation and exoticization which leads not only to Thai culture being exploited, but Thai PEOPLE being exploited both in their own country and elsewhere?  Are you willing to follow the traditional rules of abstention? Do you understand that you are making a serious pact that could have spiritual repercussions?

There are probably other questions that you should ask yourself about this, these are the ones G came up with off the top of their head.

In short, you need to recognize and deal with the fact that white westerners have used Asian cultures to get their fix of the exotic and magical for centuries. This has had serious repercussions for Asians in the diaspora, where their traditions are used to degrade them, but are pretty and magical on non-Asian people, not to mention the repercussions for those countries’ economic, cultural and political spheres.

anonymous asked:

Homesick reader from our time with Rein, Junkrat and Hanzo please?

Reinhardt


You sat out on the deck, staring out into the sea. You heard Reinhardt shuffling towards you, settling down next to you. Your mind felt heavy while your heart ached, wondering if your family is still around as old as they would have to be.

“There is something on your mind,” he said, watching you, “what is it?”

“I was wondering about my family,” you said after a long deliberation.

“Ah,” he said, settling back, “What about them?”

“I wonder if they are still alive,” you said, “If they survived the Crisis or if they would even recognise me.”

“I don’t know if your family is still out there,” he said, patting your back and pushing you forward slightly, “But if they are I’m sure they’d be happy to see you again.”

“Thanks,” you smiled at him, patting his large hand.

Junkrat


You were quiet, it took him a while to notice as he often covered your with his loud voice but he saw that something was wrong with you. He plopped down next to you, his leg rattling against the ground.

“Darl?” he asked, gently touching your arm and shocking you.

“What is it?” you asked, blinking in surprise.

“Something wrong?” he asked and you blinked, hands wringing together to think about what to say.

“I just…” you said, eyebrows scrunching together, “miss my time.”

He quieted down, deep in thought, his metal hand tapping against the ground. His face went through a series of motions before he finally patted your knee.

“From what I understand,” he said, “you can’t go back, is there any point on thinking about it?”

“I know,” you sad, “I’ll be fine in a moment, just give me a little time.”

Hanzo


You pushed away from him, making the Japanese man hurt deeply at your absence. After a few days of sulking, he finally tracked you down, seeing the way you blankly stared forward.

“What is the matter?” he said, your eyes dim and you slowly look at him.

“I…” you said, looking away, “I don’t belong here.”

“In this base?” he asked and you shook your head.

“In this time,” you said and he gave a hurt noise, “This isn’t my world.”

You knelt down next to you and hesitantly reached a hand out to you, grabbing your hand. He spent a few moment of thought before he took a deep breath.

“I don’t know what it’s like,” he finally said, “I can’t imagine it but I will be here for you, if that is enough.”

“It is,” you said, “or it will be, thank you for being understanding.”

Attention Fiction Writers

We all put hours of time, spend copious amounts of energy, and pour our love into our stories for our favourite fandoms to read and enjoy. As much as we’re all happy to do it for free –because we love it– many of us are desperate for recognition, feedback, and critiques from our readers, because we often see very little, or no replies at all, on our fics.

So @crimsoncat21 and I @kendralynora are proposing we start a Writer’s Alliance where we promote “Content for Comments”.

As a group we would decide how many reviews we’d like to see on our fics before we publish more to our stories. Comments would be treated as more of an “unlock feature” that would allow an author to post more when they are ready themselves (or not at all ever). Comments would not be used as currency; putting an obligation onto writers to produce more content.

The intention behind this alliance is not to lord power over readers like they owe us, it’s to boost a healthier reader/writer experience and relationship. Especially for us authors who so often lose heart in writing when we don’t know when all our hard work is even worth it, because we never see a payoff.

If anyone is interested: please reblog, comment, & tag any fic writers that you may know, so we can begin a conversation and hopefully start a movement for the better.

While explaining, thorin realize that Mahal has done this. Their souls being bound together, although they were in different worlds and it was only after death they were allowed to find each other.

Crash!

Your head snaps back.

The front of your car crumples like tinfoil. Air bags smother your face. You gasp, then cough as you inhale the powder that exploded out with the airbags. Car alarms blare. You can see the other driver slumped over their wheel. Your right leg is throbbing, forcing you to ignore the destruction. You don’t want to look down at your leg but you have to. Maybe it’s nothing. Please be nothing, you hope.

These spectacular long exposure shots are courtesy of Beth Maciorowski who is a self taught photographer who shoots primarily with film, often manipulating it and developing at home. She has a vast collection of cameras and expired film and feels most inspired by nature. You can find more of her work on her Flickr! or follow her on IG @bethmaciorowski Don’t these images just make you want to grab that tripod of yours and head out into the night to capture something just as splendid right at this very second??! It takes patience and preservation for long exposure photography, AND on film to boot, but you know the results will always astound.

Thanks once more Beth for your psychedelic pop-images, which acted as the kick in the tush I needed to jump start this blog. Yes, CGSF did take yet another leave of absence and no excuses will be made on behalf of our tardiness!! Shame on us!!! Boo! Despite us being AWOL, we still received tons of submissions from our amazing readers and we promise to return the endearment  from all of you for not giving up on us by sharing them in the following days. Keep up the amazing work girls and boys and always BELIEVE IN FILM!!

In other news, eleanorrigby236 has just recently moved to Berlin and hopes to start shooting on film again as she explores the city made for walking, one day at a time!
