i didn't want to choose a character

I’m just saying but y'all have turned nina zenick into the character that you criticize other media for having. The number of posts that I have seen that are centered around nina’s love of waffles and her beauty is ridiculous (basically every post about her), which is basically what every other form of media reduces fat girls down to and what they value them for. Y'all are putting her into the same box that society puts fat girls in when her character is handled so beautifully in the books. You’re taking the representation that I have never seen before and twisting it into something else. Nina is strong and courageous and fierce and powerful but she’s also kind and loving and caring. Why are the only traits you choose to represent in your posts are her affinity for waffles and her beauty?

did you like mick? i was actually starting to enjoy him but then.... *cries*

OK SO

i didn’t

BUT I’LL EXPLAIN WHY because after his demise, a lot of people asked if i liked him, and i remained completely unphased by him SO!! here you go

  • he’s with the BMoL. already not a good thing BECAUSE
    • i don’t care for this group……….they are SO CLEAN. and i think of clean as boring, unless proven otherwise. (which, within spn, i often am, which is nice!) i talked about this with a friend in seattle–this storyline strikes no chords with me because there’s 0 personality or gritty americana at all ;o;
  • the way they introduced his character made him seem like he’d be a lot more badass! but he was a pencil pusher so i mean alright
  • he said he’d never killed, but as a kid just to advance his position he killed one of his only friends?? so we don’t actually know anything he’s done ever except for so far kill 2 kids for his job that he doesn’t really like that much
  • i want SOME SORT of mythological creature to be working with them regularly, and mick………….dressed…………lIKE CAS….i mean if i have the choice between the two i’m gonna choose an angel child
  • his character never made too much sense to me?? and again. too clean without getting the hands dirty:

in comparison, look at my favorite character. look at him. he’s the most powerful being in the universe and he’s a damn slob

i think i might’ve just been spoiled too much last season

curse you robbie thompson

  • what she says: I'm fine
  • what she means: I can't believe people say that Shay Cormac is a traitor to the assassins. I mean he destroyed a city and blamed himself for it and Achilles told him to brush it off and didn't listen to what Shay had to say. And he didn't run off to the templars; Monro let him choose to be a templar or not. People don't even want to play the game, but it had such a great story, and people aren't even giving it a chance. And the modern plot was more relevant than Unity's modern plot. I mean what was Ubisoft thinking ? They should have put as much advertising into Rogue as they did Unity. And Shay was such a good character and there was a lot of nostalgia in the game. Remember the homestead from ACIII? You can run around it again, all while it's in its prime as an assassin headquarters. Plus, it has Haytham Kenway, so that's a plus. I just don't get why people didn't give Rogue a chance. Hey, has it been about 10 seconds since we talked about Rogue? It has been about 10 seconds till we talked about Rogue. Hey what the fuck

You two have so many characters to choose from, which didn’t make things easy, haha. Went the Zelda route, totally not because of BotW. Definitely not.  > >

I just wanted to make Petil with this face. Really, there’s no other explanation. I don’t even know what could happen to get this face, haha. Probably too many shenanigans around her.

Alden’s hair looked really poofy in the reference I used, so I went with it. Not sure what that face is for though. Either his hair is too much, or he saw that haircut comment.

Just like a preemptive thing.

Mutsuki saying Saiko noticed he was “a girl” has no real standing on Mutsuki’s gender identity.

Just think of it like this it would be absurd to think Saiko randomly discovered some magical psychological tell that told her Mutsuki was lying about his gender and emotions toward it. It makes perfect sense for the words to mean, “you found out I have a female sexed body.”

It has no real standing in gender much less Mutsuki’s feelings towards it. And that’s all I have to say about that…

You can choose to take it to mean something else if you want but don’t go trying to shove it down people’s throats as “proof” of anything.

How to Hatch your Dragon

solitaria-fantasma

“What do you mean I have to take care of it!?” Arthur hissed at Mystery. A few sparks managed to lick their way out between his clenched teeth.

The insane not-a-dog up and left for three days after he got a random letter in the mail, didn’t let anyone see it, disappeared without a word, came back and dropped a rather large jeweled egg in his lap and told him that it was his now. And that he needed to hatch and take care of the baby dragon inside.

First off, he wasn’t even ready to think about having kids, let alone a pet. He could barely take care of himself without the support of Vivi and Lewis. And now Mystery wanted him to raise a baby dragon from birth! Or was it hatching? He’d have to ask Lewis later …

Secondly, he was new to the whole dragon thing. He was only part-dragon and that didn’t come with any paternal or parental instincts! Or an instruction manual for that matter. He still didn’t know what he did or ate that let him breathe fire, unintentionally, when he yells or sighs too heavily. At least Vivi called it cute when little sparks came out when he sighs, or when it looked like he was seeing his breath regardless of the temperature.

I'm curious, do you have any other thoughts on the 3x07 Hook and Neal scene? I never knew what to think of it myself. I mean, on the one hand, he does seem genuine in his thanks. But on the other hand, his little smile that he can't seem to hold back (in the second to last gif) makes me think that he might have not been so oblivious to the fact that Neal didn't know, and might have told him on purpose. I mean, trying to be the bigger person or not, jealousy sucks.

See the full gifset from Dark Hollow Hookfire!Anon is referencing by @someone-like-robsten 

I don’t see that at all Hookfire!Anon. You are implying that Hook deliberately set out to hurt Neal or that he wanted to stake his claim on Emma  and neither of those things are in character to me. 

Hook cares about Neal. He came to Neverland in large part because of him. When Pan gives Hook the option he chooses Neal without hesitation. But his feelings for Neal live in the abstract. All his emotions are tied to the boy he knew not the man Neal became. And yes that man happens to by vying for the same woman he is…so that makes it even more complicated. But that doesn’t equal a desire to hurt Neal.

Hook struggles with jealousy from the moment he overhears Neal promising that he will never stop fighting for Emma. Certainly he wants to be the one Emma chooses. But he knows it’s Emma’s choice so staking a claim or warning Neal off by bringing up The Kiss doesn’t fit either. So what is going on?  

Let’s break down the scene

They go back to Neal’s cave where Hook probably feels a ton of guilt because it’s where Bae spent centuries alone because of Hook. The second they are alone Hook starts the conversation with an air of reluctance–he can’t even look at Neal. He was waiting for an opportunity for this conversation but he doesn’t want to have it. He thinks Neal already knows about the kiss and likely wants to clear the awkwardness away since they all have to work together. 

Why is he thanking Neal for being understanding? Because he assumes Neal knows about the kiss and that Neal would be hurt by it. I think he is trying to tell Neal that he respects him for the way he is handling the situation. He is trying to be an adult about it all. 

Neal is clueless and so Hook spells it out for him. He is all “our dalliance” aka The Kiss, the most life changing lip-lock in all fairytale-dom. 

LOOK at his face! He looks offended that Neal hasn’t heard about this earth shattering event. Later when Emma’s asks Hook why he told Neal about The Kiss he says it’s because he “hoped it meant something”. Neal not knowing about The Kiss tells Hook that it really was “just a kiss” Which can’t have felt great. Even though he isn’t entirely sure he is worthy of Emma Hook wants her to want him, to choose him.

I'm trying to reevaluate my opinion on zayn because I think I've been following biased blogs and I want to be fair. I've seen people talking about zayn being misogynistic, aphoboic and fatphobic? Some said he was ableist too. apparently he has said the n word and has a tweet with the n word in it on his twitter. Some others also said he appropriates black culture and didn't deny it? I'm really confused about what to believe. Help?

Well, first of all, I think it’s very telling of your character that you’re choosing to get more sides of the story so as to not follow the crowd. Kudos on that – not many people think to stray from the herd. As usual, this answer is probably going to be very long and spaced out for easier readability, despite my expected rambling. I’m not going to absolve Zayn of anything; I’m simply going to give my two cents on the situation and leave others to think for themselves as I have done. My word is not final or law, and I won’t act like it is.

So heyyyy, I was just wondering if you lovely authors would want to share some fun things about your own writing? We all would love to know! :)

1) What is your favorite fic that you’ve ever written (any fandom)?

2) What is your favorite character (or characterization)?

3) If only one of your fics could get turned into a movie (or a short film if it’s short fic), which would you choose?

4) Is there a fic you’ve always wanted to write but never had the time/motivation to follow through with?

5) Which other author do you totally stan?

Hi, I'm writing a story set in the medieval era in (mostly) a single country. However I'm not bothering to be globally accurate since fauns and centaurs also didn't have some sort of global spread back then, if you catch my drift. I want to be able to add enough PoC characters but I want all of them to be native european. So far I've been having trouble choosing European countries where people weren't all white back in the day. Any idea what I can do to fix this? It sounded easier than it is &gt

Uuuuh, I know next to nothing about this subject… No, that’s a lie. I know absolutely nothing about it.

By “native”, do you mean indigenous peoples, or just people born and raised in Europe?

[This wiki page] has a list of indigenous European groups. I didn’t read through all the linked articles, but for the few that I did read, a lot of the people seem to be in or near parts of Russia. You’ll probably wanna take a more thorough look, though.

As for the “born and raised” variety, you might want to look into the [Moors]. They were people of Arab and African decent (and/or Muslims) who mainly settled in areas of Spain, Portugal and Italy… so, “southern Europe”, I guess. Though they could also be found in other areas as well. Honestly, people of all skin tones existed all over Europe, even during the medieval era. I don’t know how common they were, but they did exist.

Setting that aside for a moment… It’s fantasy. You’ve already got fae roaming about; you’re allowed to mix things up. Just ask yourself if it’s going to break the story.

See that’s what makes fantasy so great… You can put whoever you want wherever you want and no one can tell you it’s wrong because you just went and created your own world/AU.
