1. “I-I’m not normal, I know I’m not. And I don’t….I don’t want this to change me I don’t-”

“Listen to me, so what if you aren’t normal? Nobody really is. And I promise you, I will do everything I can to keep you grounded.”

2. “You should stay away from me. I’m only going to end up hurting you when this changes me, and it will change me.”

“How do you know that? You can’t predict the future! Just stop this please!”

3. “If you’re scared, terrified even of what you think this might do to you. Please just talk to me, I’m here whenever you need.”


If anyone has any other prompts feel free to comment! :)

So I guess some people are wondering about my cartoon. So basically I’m working on a (personal) pilot. Been wanting to make it for a while now and it’s finally (very slowly) happening.

If you’ve been following me for a while now you probably seen a bunch of concept art already, but it’s called “The Dark Harvest” and basically it revolves around the life of a sort of “rookie grim reaper” and her grandfather training her and whatnot… It’s sci fi and paranormal and all that good stuff…

This is my first time actually writing dialogue for a cartoon and I’m not really the best writer so I’m trying my best to make it good. I’m also just one person working on the whole thing (animation, backgrounds, sound effects, editing, some music probably etc.) so this will probably take some time. I really like how it looks visually right now (people say it looks like Sym Bionic Titan, and I’ll take that as a compliment!) but as far as how the cartoon is going to turn out like story wise, guess you’ll have to wait and see.

CONFESSION: 

When my best friend dragged me into her obsession with Dragon Age after the first game came out, I honestly wasn’t as into it as she wanted me to be. And then I really started playing it, and it was almost like the characters were real with how well written they are.
After she died last year, I couldn’t play Inquisition anymore. I kept expecting Solas, her absolute favorite character, to say something about it. I kept expecting her Inquisitor’s best friend Dorian to be waiting in the library to comfort my character.
But their dialogue didn’t change. They had affected our lives so much that I expected us to have affected them, but they were the same, and it broke me. I still can’t play it very much before I have to stop.


Mod Note: We’re so sorry for your loss Confessor

There is no spoon

I loved the pop-culture/sf reference extravaganza of this episode.

David is stuck in a corner of his mind that looks like a coffin with only himself to talk to. And David’s superego is British in a nicely meta way that plays both on Dan Steven’s nationality and American stereotype that British accent means one is smart (also that moment of American doing a really bad impression of British accent while Stevens was imitating Patrick Stewart - stellar).

And then to break out of their prison the rational mind David tells himself there is no coffin and to science the shit out of what is happening.

Meanwhile, Syd gets the glasses that show you what is real - including real monsters. In black and white of course (true They Live style). And it’s also a silent film with dialogue cards and everything. And then Lenny was doing her best Beetlejuice/Edward Scissorhands impression.

This is episode was made of references. And that’s even without all the Professor X fighting Shadow King cartoon David recreated. That was a cherry on top.

Oh God, as much as I would like Killian back by the end of the next ep, I really really don't want a second proposal in 16. That is an Adam & Eddy ep and their dialogue is crap. We already got one crap proposal...I don't want to hear about how much he likes her red leather jacket again. I was hoping Jane would write it b/c she at least does them justice, but I think it's gonna be some other writer. I really don't like many of them to be honest. There's been so many crappy written eps this season

Yeah, BUT CS is A&E’s creation. Since they can’t write their wedding (because they reserve finales for themselves), the second REAL proposal is the next best thing. I can totally see it happening.

Honestly, the thing that marred the first proposal was the secret.(And Emma finding the ring off screen, grrr). I think they made it underwhelming on purpose to give the second one more punch.

Besides, A&E take a pass at ALL the scripts, anon. That’s how writers’ rooms work. The main showrunner(s) almost always takes a pass at each script, as does the network. I, too, would trust Jane & Jerome with the proposal, HOWEVER my gut tells me it’ll be in 16, 17 at the LATEST. With the wedding in 20, they can’t afford to drag it out too much.

“I know everyone loves Serana and thinks she’s one of the best followers and all that, but I really disagree. I find her constant sarcasm and petty complaints to be incredibly annoying and reminiscent of a certain housecarl of Whiterun that also tends to get on my nerves (*cough* Lydia *cough*). Teldryn Sero, on the other hand, is awesome - I love his interesting dialogue options and his voice is super sexy.“

Adult World (2013) - Scott Coffey

5 bullets on this film:

  • It’s cute. Not a super comedy, not a super drama. You don’t think about it for weeks after you’ve watched it, but it’s cute and that’s all. It’s well written and kind of funny, but it’s one of those films to watch when you don’t feel like doing anything. 
  • I really liked the characters. Many people hated this movie because the protagonist is annoying and is struggling with her first world problems, but aren’t we all like this? 
  • The dialogues, the poetry references and the cinematography make everyhting better. Like, it goes from 0 to 100.
  • Why does everyone hate Emma Roberts? She’s not the best actress in the world but she’s not bad either. And she gets to kiss Evan Peters, you don’t. John Cusack (WHO PLAYS A WRITER, OH, WHAT A SURPRISE) and Armando Riesco were great and they made me laugh. And I never laugh.
  • I think the message of this film is very important to all of us: It’s fine if you don’t do anything with your life. It’s fine if you don’t leave your mark in the world, as long as you’re happy. We all have dreams, but well, sometimes they don’t come true. Your parents may tell you that you’re going to do something important one day, but well, maybe you won’t. That doesn’t mean you’re not talented or special :)

Sai: Hello. Sorry, I’m late. But I was in the hallway, chatting up Sakura.

Naruto: Really? You? S-A-I, spoke to Sakura-chan?

Sai: Actually, I was less the chatter than the chattee.

Sasuke: What did she say? Is she still mad at me?

Sai: Well, she was upset at first, but, probably because her best friend shot somebody. Then there was something about you and… Then she hugged me.

Naruto: She hugged you? How did she hugged you?!

[Sai hugs Naruto]

Naruto: Is that her perfume I smell?

Sai: Intoxicating, isn’t it?

I have two core problems with Andromeda that really, at the end of the day, keep me from liking it more than ME1, and those basically are:

  • General writing. The main plot is a fucking snoozefest. There are a few good moments, but they’re overshadowed by a general lack of anything new or unique or interesting happening. Most sidequests aren’t that interesting either. The one and only thing that really saves it for me is Ryder themselves; this is the most interesting voiced RPG protagonist I’ve played in a long time, maybe ever, and… honestly, there are moments where I feel like I’m playing as the Boss from Saints Row, and it’s made all the better because the best of her dialogue tend to be options I chose myself. That, however, doesn’t change the fact that the ENTIRE PLOT revolves around two races that are FAR less interesting than anyone back home in the Milky Way.
  • Lack of history. A big part of the plot is that the angara lost their history when the kett first arrived. They were decimated so completely that much of what they knew was wiped out, and this is clearly designed to evoke both the Protheans a few centuries into the Reaper invasion, and what the modern Milky Way races could have become had Shepard failed. But… this leaves a huge vacuum of interesting content. One of my favorite things in the original trilogy was reading all the little interesting recorded history of various planets I found in the galaxy map, and how many sidequests, especially in ME1, taught you things about how the galaxy works. There was always some old mystery to dig up, something interesting that people have forgotten, or something lost to search for. Andromeda has a lot of very immediate things. Everything is happening right now. And that’s not quite as cool, really. It makes the Heleus Cluster feel really shallow. By far, the most interesting thing I’ve seen in a planetary description has been like, “there was a primitive race who lived on this one planet that seems to have been wiped out when the Scourge arrived.” And the most interesting things I’ve found or seen or uncovered are all things that have happened in the last fourteen months, with the exception of ancient angaran stuff–which, I don’t really find them all that interesting in the first place–and Remnant stuff–which is pretty incomprehensible.

Other than that, though, this game is so many leagues above ME2 and 3 in almost every single way, it puts them to shame.

… Andromeda still hasn’t come close to ME2′s character writing, though.

Hi! Firstly, I love your blog. :) One of my characters is mute, and therefore uses sign language to communicate.I plan on writing her dialogue in italics to differentiate it from other characters’, but I’m really confused on what dialogue tags I would use. Would I still use ‘said’, or would I use a different word, like 'signed’?


“Signed” would probably work best. I talk a bit more about it in Portraying Sign Language in Dialogue. Also, just so you know, I think people are trying to move away from “mute” to describe someone who doesn’t speak. Instead, the more common term these days is “non-verbal.” :)

(I love how the dialogue I chose syncs with his mouth c:) 

“So, you and (Y/N) (L/N) have been getting a bit cozy. Do you enjoy working with her?” The interviewer questions.

“She’s great.” Adam hides a smile as best he can. 

“Really?” The interviewer asks, noticing Adam’s obvious crush. 

“Yep.” He says, just before glancing over at you and taking in your astounding beauty yet again.

“But why are you so scared to lose me?”
I almost laughed through my tears. I almost let the giggle slip between my lips. But she already thinks I’m crazy, and that would have just confirmed it.
“You have never been a good friend,” I said. Her face twisted, but I had meant what I said. “Really you haven’t. You never ask me how I’m doing, and you always criticize me for caring too much. You keep complaining that you’re the one who’s abused here, but come on, we’ve both had our fair share.”
She wouldn’t look at me, she knotted her hands together and clicked her fingernails. It was the same thing she did the first time she got dumped, a douchebag who cheated on her. That’s when I really got to know her.
“Look, we argue all the time, we never have anything nice to say. God, I’m nicer to strangers than I am to you and you know damn well that’s how you act too.”
The longer she was silent, the more I knew I was right.
“Look, I can be a real selfish bitch, and you can be a real pretentious asshole. And maybe we aren’t the healthiest for each other, and maybe I’ll only call you when I’m drunk and you’ll only call me when your dad’s being a dick, but, doesn’t that count for something?”
She looked up, she was crying, stubbornly, of course, because she hated to cry, but the tears were real. She wouldn’t make eye contact, but I could see the ice in her stare breaking.
“We haven’t even really been friends for that long, but dammit, you know more about me than I think I even do. And I know more about you than everyone else on this Earth. And if we can figure that out in such short a time, and if we can change so much, but still be each other’s rock bottom calls, then doesn’t that mean anything?”
She bowed her head again, but this time I knew she knew I was right.
I waited for a minute, to see if she would speak, she didn’t. I began to head for the door, knowing there was nothing more I could say to keep her.
“Wait,” she said, just as I was reaching for the door. “Stay…” there was a pause in her voice, she finally met my gaze, “I don’t want to lose my only cushion at rock bottom.”

Like so far I’ve been mostly posting reactions to various comic and outrageous moments but what’s really grabbing me in this route is how intensely romantic and involving this story is.

As the MC we’re given such a feeling of agency and importance, especially with some of the best choices in the dialogue selection. And at the same time you can feel Aurora going from casual and teasing flirting to realising how much she likes this intense and clever young woman she suddenly has responsibility for.

And from then on she puts so much energy into getting to know MC and carefully slowly wooing her, even in the middle of a very fucked-up period of her life.

And Aurora’s hedonism and flamboyance are very real parts of her and not some facade, and at the same time there’s so much of her we’re not seeing yet and she’s so obviously vulnerable.

This is really exciting and I should be asleep.

Gravity Falls 20 Day Challenge: Day 18-Favorite Quote

I couldn’t pick just one, so here’s three of my top favorite quotes:

“I even petitioned the government to remove this day from calendars. Now I’m not allow to fly on airplanes” I don’t know why, but this line just KILLS me every time. When I first saw this episode I was laughing so hard at this that I missed the next two minutes of dialogue. There’s of course the sweet gesture of how far Stan really is willing to go to help Soos out, but also his manner of helping is less than…normal.

“I don’t know why I tell you things.” This is literally my relationship with my sister. She’s worried about serious real things and I’m just laughing and being silly. You tell her things because she’s your best friend Dipper. Just love her.

And finally…

“Everything I’ve done, everything I’ve worked for, it’s all FOR THIS FAMILY” This line, it makes me tear up every time. It shows such raw, genuine emotion from Stan, something we’ve never really seen before this episode. You’re able to see past all his facades and pretenses to see this is a man who has literally crossed every line and compromised every value to see the face of his brother again. 

Stan, you had better not die.

MTVS Epic Rewatch #115

BTVS 5x01 Buffy vs Dracula

Stray thoughts

1) Buffy vs Dracula might not make it into any “best of BTVS” lists, but it’s a fun episode and it works as a season opener: it sets up some of the narrative that will drive this season (Buffy’s search for her identity as a slayer, Giles struggle to reconcile his personal needs with his desire to continue mentoring Buffy, Riley’s insecurities and feelings of inadequacy) and of course it ends with - dare I say - one of the best cliffhangers to have ever cliffhanged (that’s a word I’ve made up.) But more on that later. 

2) I really love the opening scene in this episode. Buffy wakes up with an itch only a good slaying can scratch. So slaying she goes. Or shall we say hunting? And then she’s finally able to fall asleep. There’s no dialogue, but it very nicely sums up what Buffy is about. It’s also a nice reminder of how far she’s come since Welcome to the Hellmouth. Slayerness had always been a burden for Buffy, something she wanted to get away from but always felt she was pulled back into. In a lot of ways, it would always be a burden. But it’s also a part of her identity. She’s starting to embrace her slayerness, and it’s beautiful.

3) My favorite Riley scene, tbh.

4) So Willow started a fire with magic and created a storm… Hm, I wonder what’s the subliminal message regarding the consequences of her use of magic…

5) I love Giles’s die-hard hatred towards technology.

Obstinate bloody machine simply refused to work for me.

6) And then this moment…

GILES: That’s what I’m trying to do, actually, is, um, get a life. (…)  You see, I’m, I’m going back to England. (…)  Well, it’s become quite obvious that Buffy doesn’t need me. I don’t say that in a self-pitying way, I’m quite proud, actually.

He’s genuinely sincere when he says he’s proud of the fact Buffy doesn’t need him anymore. I think, however, the reason he so quickly agreed to Buffy’s request later on is because, regardless of how proud he was of her, he desperately wanted to feel needed and validated. He’d been a watcher for a long time and now that he hadn’t been one in quite a while, he no longer knew who he was or what he was supposed to do with his life. I think the thought of moving on frightened him because his future was so uncertain. Again, it’s a question of identity. (I know, I know, I’m always talking about this.) Falling back into the role of watcher was easy, comfortable, something he knew he was good at and something that gave meaning to his life. Buffy basically gave him an easy way out. But it just meant he was just postponing the inevitable…

7) This is the scene @etraytin mentioned when someone asked me whether the end of the episode was the moment when the monk’s spell kicked in. Buffy and Joyce are clearly having dinner alone - the table is set for two.

More importantly, there’s this line which clearly proves Dawn wasn’t anywhere around yet…

JOYCE: You know, I’m gonna have to get used to this place without you again. It gets so quiet.

If the spell had already been already working, Joyce wouldn’t have been worried about the house getting quiet without Buffy (we know Dawn was quite loud at the beginning…)

8) So, when Dracula showed himself and said “Such power”, this is all I could think about…

THANK YOU TUMBLR. YOU’VE RUINED ME.

A question for science: who would you have liked to play Dracula instead of this dude? (who apparently made a Dracula movie the same year he was on Buffy…) He wasn’t that bad, but he wasn’t great. And if you’re going to have Dracula show up in a vampire show, he’d better be great. (On that note, I’m really glad Freddie didn’t end up playing Dracula on this episode. I truly think he couldn’t have pulled it of…)

This one was pretty cool. It’s 99% about Ace, lost and wounded and left alone on a mysterious planet together with Miles Richardson at his very hammiest. The Doctor Professor is peripheral at best, giving the story a chance to really explore Ace without him. 

For a 1998 audio, it comes pretty close to Big Finish quality — it’s got a beautiful soundscape and very nice dialogue. I saw the big plot twist coming from the start but then again, Doctor Who has never been subtle about this particular kind of twist. And the dynamic between Ace and Miles Richardson’s character reminded me tremendously of her later relationship with Henry Noone. Very interesting stuff.  

Also, that cover. 

Title: Sweet talking.

Author: Mod. Grunge

Words: 598

Pairing: Wanda x Reader (the requester has not mentioned any powers)

Prompt: ( x )

Trigger Warnings: Lesbians

Genres: Fluff, Romance

Comments: Gosh, do I love Wanda! I honestly believe that there are way too few stories out there that have her as a main character paired with a girl, so thank you, anonnie, for giving me the opportunity to contribute to the small fandom! I hope you will have something amazing happen to you today!
This also has a lot more dialogue than I usually incorporate in my fics, so that’s also a first!


“Wanda, come on! Slow down a little bit!” You yell at her quickly advancing figure, trying your best to catch your breath.

You don’t exactly know what in the world happened to make her have this type of reaction—to simply just stand up without a word and jog away from you. You really don’t know, but you’ll be damned if you don’t find out.

Wanda doesn’t slow down and the only thing you hear from her is a scoff. She’s not making this any easier for you. Deciding that playing around will no longer benefit any of you, you start running with all the force left in you, quickly reaching her and grabbing her by the shoulder, spinning her around so she could face you. You weren’t expecting that expression.

She has never made that face with you. You would have known, had she made it. It’s not an angry one, nor is it a displeased one, it’s a combination of both with a drop of annoyance and regret and is that a hint of troubled? Her face looks as if she just splashed all the negative emotions she could think of.

“Hey, hey, what’s wrong? Talk to me.” You place your hands on both of her cheeks, stopping her from even thinking about turning her head away and avoiding eye contact with you. You’ve never known just how warm her body is when she’s focusing on something. It makes you tingle, if you stop and think about it. It makes you tingle in a very, very good way and you might just be enjoying this a little bit too much.

Wanda waits a couple of seconds before she replies, almost as if she’s testing you and your patience, but it’s ok, you’ve got plenty of time and plenty of patience and plenty of love for her to endure throughout the armache.

“It’s nothing. Really.”

“Really?”

“Really.”

“That’s bullshit” you deadpan, squishing her cheeks so her lips would create the perfect duckface. Wanda certainly doesn’t agree with your way of humouring yourself at her expanse and slaps your hands away, dusting herself off.

“So really, what’s this whole thing about?” You ask again, folding your hands over your chest and waiting for her to answer honestly this time.

“…………..”

“I’m waiting.”

“That guy.” She starts.

“Which guy?”

“That guy you let place his head on your lap.”

“…What?”

“You know which one, Cerise!” Wanda says frustrated, turning around.

“……………You’re jealous.” You deadpan again, this time with a way too smug expression at which Wanda doesn’t exactly react well as she huffs, giving you a pointed look when she turns her head to you.

“’m not.”

“Oh, yes, yes, you are.” You say, giggling after and moving closer to her, close enough to be able to circle your arms around her waist and burying your nose in the crook of her neck.

“I didn’t like it.”

“His head was bleeding.”

“I still don’t like it.”

“His head was bleeding because I hit him with a frying pan. Dude was really good at sneaking behind me and acting like a burglar.”

“I still don’t like it, Cerise”, she says, this time more aggressively although Wanda places her hands on yours and gives them a squeeze.

“I love you.”

“That’s not going to get you out of this.”

“I know. But I love you.”

“He had bad thoughts about you.”

“Do you love me?”

“Are you paying attention?” she asks, frustrated.

“I am. But I am paying even much more attention to how beautiful you are, God.”

“Please don’t talk to me anymore.”

“I’m sorry!”

  • Hawke: Sooo all the shit was for the Chantry?
  • Anders: Yes, and your pleasant company.
  • Hawke: of course, the sewage system of Kirkwall is such a romantic place. And now that explosion. You really know how to turn me on.
  • Anders: i don’t think it’s the good time , Hawke.
  • Hawke: Let’s ask Meredith to be Best man at our wedding.


Spoiler: Hawke didn’t have the time to ask her.
