how to support her

anonymous asked:

Can you tell us Elliot, jarrahs and Josie's reaction to Quine being pregnant

Sorry it took me so long to answer this one. 

They were all very surprised, but supportive.

Elliott probably took it the hardest though, Quinn is his baby and it took him a little while to get his head around the fact that she was going to be a mum and would have to grow up sooner than she should have had to. He did avoid her a little bit to begin with, trying to pretend it wasn’t happening, but after Kinleigh had a talk to him and pointed out how supportive he’d been of her with Jarrah and how well everything had turned out for her in the end, He accepted the situation much better and was there for her like she needed him to be… and now they’re here Elliott absolutely adored the twins and has a very strong bond with both of them, He wouldn’t change anything for the world.

Reaction of the boys to a feminist girl! ~ Would they support her or not?

I think everyone of them would support her! Since it is about the equal treatment, among other things, (can’t explain in English save me) I think that they would support her 100%

So I don’t know how to really put it in a reaction more like 

BTS

Everyone is 100% supportive

i just love how there was such a stark contrast between jake telling amy he still has feelings for her (”i know you’re with teddy and nothing is going to happen, i just wanted you to know”) vs teddy telling amy he still has feelings for her (”why are you with him” “will you marry me”)

Why Amethyst not hating herself anymore is not out of the blue - or an Amethyst development analysis season per season

This was originally a reply to another post, but people asked me to write it as it’s own post so why not.

Amethyst’s character development has happened on screen apparently this need clarification since early season 1.

In the episode “Tiger Millionaire”, season 1 is when we are first introduced to Amethyst’s inferiority complex. We learn she doens’t feel appreciated by the gems and uses wrestling to feel better about herself.

In the end, the gems let her wrestle, recognizing how pressured Amethyst felt.

The next important episode in Amethyst’s development is “On the Run”, season 1. We learn how she was made in the Kindergarten and how she sees herself as bad because of it.

She thinks Pearl sees her as “a mistake” and the episode ends when Pearl reassures her that she think Ame’s good and the two reconcile.

This is the first step of Amethyst’s development.

So, are you ready, you think? To start dating? No, definitely not. My grief group said that I wouldn’t be ready until I can get through the whole story of Michael’s death without tearing up.

I don’t know what I’m going to do after this, I don’t know if there’s anything I can do. 
I’m pretty sure you can do anything, Ms. Grant.

My favourite thing about the dragon slayers is the aesthetic of all these grown ass muscled men and then this tiny twelve year old girl who is just as competent a wizard if not more so

Can we talk about how Sana opened up to Yousef about not being as good of a person as she wanted to be this Ramadan? How she opened up about getting bullied in Middle school and how it kind of shaped her and her responses to things?

Can we talk about how Sana admitted that sometimes she has doubts and that she’s not always so sure of everything? How she hasn’t made this admission to anyone besides Jamilla who was there when it happened?

Can we talk about how Yousef was just there for her, being respectful and never trying a single thing? How she was so excited to see him that she didn’t think about bringing food, but he DID and he counted down to sunset so that she could eat? How he sat beside her and watched her break her fast, beside her, not judging, not shoving his views down her throat, completely understanding that religion is between you and what you believe in and what you feel and that no one can tell you how to feel?

Can we talk about how he never wants to make her doubt her beliefs and religion, but rather supports her? How he wanted to make sure that she trusted him even if it was a silly game? How he really wanted them to trust each other?

This guy is the definition of partner. When she has doubts, he will remind her of her faith and beliefs, not push her further away from them because he has the utmost respect for her. When she has doubts, he will be right there to remind her.

Mama Bakkoush, you is wrong 💛 This is a partnership. A beautiful and strong partnership with incredible potential. Alt Er Love 💛.

I find it baffling how evidently Bill Potts is not dead and yet the fandom is acting as though she is.

masterofenthropy  asked:

Hi HeyWriters! I was wondering: do you have a tip to create a weak point on main characters? I´m making a story, but I´m having trouble since my main character is TOO overpowered. Could you help me with this?

(All of this is written under the assumption your character has superpowers or “special” abilities, so forgive me if you meant a different kind of power.)

I created a character concept when I was twelve. She had all the superpowers of my favorite heroes and then some. As time wore on she gained more and more until eventually my adolescent brain invented logic and realized she was actually ridiculous. Here’s how I depowered this character, who’s name is Ace, without completely ruining her coolness.

Step One:

Don’t be greedy. Any ability that does not contribute to the story needs to go. It’s taking up space that could be filled with credibility. I decided early on that Ace didn’t need most of her abilities, and by the end of the story she only relies on a few to get the job done. Also, if a character can do more than one thing that are all basically the same thing some of those should probably go (invisibility and camouflage, superspeed and teleportation, etc.). 

Step Two:

Apply real-world science. If you try to make your depiction realistic, you’ll want to have an idea of how these abilities might work and how they might not. Of course, you should suspend disbelief for some things if they’re truly essential to your character, but others can be adapted. For Ace there are some powers that only work under the right circumstances, and others that her body rejects or that give her physical pain when she uses them. Most importantly, special strengths come with special weaknesses. Sensitive hearing means loud noises are more jarring or harmful, regeneration means metabolism speeds up and the person needs to eat as much as a body builder. Any superpower you pick out will have a drawback, I guarantee it; if not a physical one than a social one (I’ll get to that).

This scene from The Incredibles is an excellent demonstration of superpower drawbacks.

Step Three: 

Consider how the character feels about all this power and why they obtained it in the first place. Ace was not born with abilities, but over time she chose certain powers for the purpose of defending herself or others. Some of her powers fade away when she stops using them, like any skill you fail to practice, and some abilities she just plain old refuses to use for personal reasons. Some are too difficult or time-consuming for her to master, and some even trigger memories of her traumatic past thus she discards them. This way she has a choice in the matter and her choice is not to bite off more than she can chew or what she doesn’t want in the first place. 

Step Four:

How do other characters feel about all this power? Perhaps some or all of your character’s powers intimidate, frighten, or anger others in the story. One of Ace’s friends dislikes how unstoppable she is, and others are taken aback by some of the things she can do or how she looks when she does them. On the whole, she hides what she can do or picks small things to do instead of big things, downplaying her own power when necessary. How your supporting characters react to the force of nature that is your MC is the most important aspect of her power.

Here’s an example from the X-Men of how other characters might react. 

For additional opinions and advice, read this https://mythcreants.com/blog/five-characters-that-are-too-powerful/ and take to heart its ending line: “There’s only one fix that avoids all the pitfalls of overpowered heroes: refrain from making them really powerful in the first place.”

Yes, Ace is a flawed concept and all the advice I just gave is only a patch kit for that flaw. However, overpowered characters continue to excite readers and viewers alike, so I would never suggest we dispense with them altogether. Just, when you’re getting a headache from how overwhelming your character is, it’s good to consider dialling it all back and focusing on the power of their personality instead.

Super apologize for taking so long to respond, and thanks for asking in the first place.

The Brun og Blid flashback Julie gave us without flashbacking

so in last nights clip this is what Sara said about Vilde…

and the crazy thing is we know exactly what she’s talking about because we LIVED IT in Noora’s POV

lets flashback shall we?

so in the beginning of s2 Vilde got a sponsor from a tanning salon and Noora was all “no fucking way, nei Vilde x 1000″

and this was her reason why

so then when Vilde continues to plead her case to Noora, Noora tells her that they shouldn’t be sexual objects and Vilde replies with

so then when she talks to Sara and Ingrid about it she basically repeats this.

(side note: okay but Noora and Eva look like proud and amused parents right now)

what I find interesting here is Sara’s face. Like she literally looks like she is judging Vilde, while Ingrid seems to be genuinely listening…but wow Sara looks annoyed af….has Julie planned this from the beginning?

but a really important thing this message Sana found has brought up…is this

Noora turned to Sana for her to agree with her argument about them not taking the sponsor but instead of agreeing with Noora

Sana looked at Vilde, realised how important this was to her and supported her <3

So I feel like what Julie has done by showing us this message from Sara, is she has once again transported us back to a moment where Sana stood up for Vilde and supported her when no one else would 

which contrasts heavily against Vilde who isn’t doing the same for Sana right now

The receipts on how much Sana has been there for Vilde keep coming up this season to further make us feel anger towards Vilde for not doing the same…

but I think this is all build up

build up for a big turn around

come on Vilde don’t let all the faith I have in you go wasted pleassseeee

One thing that makes me most proud of Humans of New York is the warmth of the comment section. There are exceptions of course, but generally the responses to each story are thoughtful and encouraging. I joke that Humans of New York is followed by the nicest 25 million people on the Internet. Often the comment section will takes on a life and a narrative of it’s own. During my visit to Santiago, I received an email from a woman named Victoria (aka Sofia) who shared a story about how her life was changed by the support of the HONY community. Very proud to pass it along:

————————————————-

(½) “We’d been trying to adopt for several years. We didn’t want an infant. The waiting list was too long. Plus we had one child already, so we’d already been through the experience of having a baby. We wanted other couples to have that opportunity. So we decided to adopt an older child. But everything went wrong. Our application was invalidated after three years because my husband got a job in Ecuador. When we tried to start over, the government went on strike. Then we lost all our possessions in a storage facility fire. So I was about to give up. I couldn’t do it anymore. The process was stressing me out so much that it was affecting my biological child. Then right when I was about to give up, I saw a Humans of New York post about a man who’d grown up in a group home. I thought: ‘He could have been my child.’ I wrote about my difficulties in the comment section, and hundreds of people responded. Everyone told me not to give up. My phone was buzzing all day. The ones that touched me most were the stories from adopted children. It gave me the strength to go on.”
