i don't even have a reason to

The other day at work I had a fic/prompt idea pop into my head for like no reason. (Seriously do not ask me where in the world this came from, because I have no clue)  

It was of a Used Car Salesman!Nick AU.  And I have decided to walk to you about it.

Basically it’s an AU where Nick is a Used Car Salesman.  He works at a used car lot and sells cars.  Most mammals think he’s like really sleezy and ripping them off in some way, as he is a fox selling used cars.  Only Nick is literally the only good salesman where he works.  (Well, mostily it’s just his jerk boss and crap policies other salesmammals follow to keep working there)  Not only does he get mammals really, really fantastic deals on cars, but they super good quality, because Nick is a like that.  His boss semi hates him, but he can’t fire him because the fox is his best sales man and suck.  Basically it’s just Nick selling cars…and like Judy shows up to buy a car…

so this past weekend i went to a con with my best friend and for WHATEVER reason, the con center thought it was a great idea to have alcohol available for purchase on every floor

and if you’ve been to a con, you kind of know how you forget to eat/drink that entire weekend

And after one beer on an empty stomach I was spoutin some shit “theories” about Yuri on Ice, completely convinced that Victor’s name was Yuri (”why are there THREE YURIS ON THE ICE”) and that anyone named otherwise was just an “equivalent” name in the person’s country smh

[When you don’t wanna be that person, but you see your boy gettin’ shit on for no reason, so time for bad decisions, am I right?

Radiant Dawn is an extension of Ike’s story, but it obviously has added facets of seeing the effect(s) of war and conflict from all sides. I think they handled this well, and could have done even better if a longer game was possible. But, as an extension, you have to expect that Ike will show up again and still have a big role in the story.

Yes, Micaiah is the first “protag” we’re introduced to in Radiant Dawn, but she is not the “main” protag, and neither is Ike. Ike and Micaiah act as, in the end, two protagonists. They are both, ultimately, needed to further the story. They even have similar personalities, and start ups in their individual stories.

Now, I never really loved Micaiah, but I respect her character, her merits as a unit in game, and her impact on the story of Radiant Dawn. And, you have to understand, Micaiah does not get pushed aside as a “main character” for Ike when he shows up. It would neither make good writing sense to do this, as we’ve spent a good while getting to learn and care for Micaiah and her cause, nor does it even make sense for Ike as a character. If you hadn’t noticed, Ike doesn’t enjoy being the center of attention or in the spotlight.

We get this game in parts for a reason. We’re meant to care for all sides involved, see their motivations (good or bad) – because this is a fucking continent-wide issue that spreads to effect every part of Tellius once we reach the climax of the plot.

So, I know and respect that people love their favorite characters, but please, there is no reason to drag another through the mud for no other reason than you feel yours doesn’t/didn’t get the attention they deserved. 

Love your favorite characters. You don’t have to like the characters you don’t like. But there’s no reason to talk shit for no other reason than to whine about something that is, frankly, not true.

The fandom might not show appreciation to Micaiah as much as Ike, but the game itself doesn’t knock her aside.]

I hope Cody or Cameron come back

Cameron: Was evicted on night one. It will be interesting to have a newish face in the house and even though I didn’t like him because he reminds me of Ian/Steve and we don’t need another Ian type winner. I hope he goes after Paul because he’s the reason he’s out.

Cody: As long as he listens to Jessica and learns to mellow out and actually work on his social game. Jessica and Cody will become unstoppable.

of all the Kanas i’ve acquired through multiple game files, i’m certain that the Kana my Corrin has with Niles is probably the oldest and also the strangest

[and yet more]

anonymous asked:

Hello! How would you write a dialogue in which a character is freaking out about something? I generally have them word vomit but I don't really like that style. If its too much could you show me an example as well?

Hi!

You could definitely word vomit – especially if your character is hysterical – but that’s not the only way to do it by any means. I know a few other ways.

1. Calmly.
This is strange, considering your character is freaking out, but the freak-out is internal – they’re shutting themselves off due to shock. In this case, they would be quiet, sane, and even if what they’re saying is illogical, it would probably sound reasonable.

“I was right there when she shot him. He dropped like a sack of flour. I figured he was gone as soon as the bullet hit his chest. So now I’ve decided I’m gonna go after her. Right now. And I’m gonna kill her.”
“What? You can’t do that!”
“Sure I can. She killed him, so I kill her. It’s called justice.”
“But- With just your bare hands?”
“The way I feel right now, my bare hands are more than enough.”

Notice how the character who just watched their friend die in front of them isn’t yelling, isn’t stuttering, isn’t getting angry or crying – they’re perfectly calm, almost to the point of complete emotional shutdown.

2. Angrily.
Some people get angry when they lose control and freak out – it scares them, and the fear manifests itself as anger. This type particularly happens when they’re upset about something and other characters aren’t taking it seriously or are shrugging off their concerns.

“No! It’s happening tonight! We don’t have time to think, or weigh things, we need to fucking leave! Now!”
“We can’t. You know that, and you’d remember that, if you were thinking straight-”
“I am thinking straight! It’s you who’s fucked in the head. I don’t give a damn what you think we can and can’t do, we need to clear out of here, right this second.”

As you can see, this character is freaking out – their concerns may or may not have a firm foundation, but obviously they are concerned, and that concern is manifesting itself as fury.

3. By stuttering.
For some people, it’s hard to talk when they panic, because their minds race forward ahead of their mouths and they get tongue-tied. I typically see/use this with more anxious characters, or with characters who aren’t typically good at speaking anyways (in other words, who are uncomfortable talking).

There are a couple of different ways to stutter:
a. Repeat the beginning of each word.

“I tr-tried to s-save him, but he wuh-wouldn’t l-let me … he knew it was g-going to happen. It’s my f-fault!”

(However, keep in mind that this kind of stuttering is more as if your character is crying and trying to talk through sobs and hiccups. Please use it sparingly – it can get old fast.)

b. Repeat words.

“No. No, I don’t know what’s going on, Ricky. Ricky, why would I have any idea? Don’t fucking look at me like that, Ricky. Don’t look at me like I’m lying.”

c. Insert filler sounds: “ah”, “uh”, “um”, and/or curse words.

“I, uh, I- fuck. I, ummm, I think maybe, ah, maybe we should leave?”

For more on stuttering – it can be hard to peg correctly – check out this post.

I hope this helps! If you need anything else, please feel free to ask. - @authors-haven

They’re too nice to fight each other what are you even talking about.

Don't take my lawn decorations.

I had purchased my first home in a slightly lower class area of town, which is pretty close to an even lower class area of town. (Think slightly ghetto a mile from absolute trailer trash.) I know most of my immediate neighbors, since most of them are pretty loud and I’d rather be friendly with them than have them be my enemy.

Some local kid likes to go around collecting trash in his free time. A real nice kid, does it for really no reason. Whenever I see him, I usually get him a drink, lemonade or soda so he can stay hydrated. (California is hot.) Sometimes I give him a few dollars, I offer the kid $30 a month to mow my lawn 2x a month. So, kid has a gig for small, but consistent income.

The kid takes a lot of pride in his work. He mows the lawn, pulls weeds, moves rocks out of the driveway, and just makes my place look extra nice, even though I don’t even ask him to do any extra work. This guy is great.

This goes on for a few years, kid is now a senior in highschool. Family is not doing so great, dad just lost his main source of income, and mom had accumulated debt which put a lot of stress on their failing marriage. Mom was abusive verbally and sometimes physically to both the kid, and the Father. But the kid keeps on walking, doing work, volunteering and being a real happy, up beat dude.

Despite his troubles at home, the kid starts buying lawn decorations. Mostly small, little gnomes, some decorative rocks, and bird bath, and he decorates my yard. It looks amazing, but I knew he must have spent a lot of his own money on that. I try to reimburse him, and he denies. He won’t take it.
I know he needs a car, and I was about to get a newer one for myself, so I gave my mine for free. It really was the least I could do for this guy for everything he has done for me.

A few weeks later, a drunk driver T bones the kid, and he dies on the scene. I was devastated, his parents were devastated, and they soon after got a divorce.

They were fighting over who gets what, and the father discovers that the mother had a drug addiction she had been hiding. Straight out of left field. She wants everything they had, and she lawyers up to fight the battle. Due to the debt the mother had accumulated on the father’s bank account, he had really no money. And nobody knew where she got her money from.
As sad as it is, it’s not my affair. Until she sent me a letter claiming that the yard decorations are rightfully hers, and that she will take them “or else”. Now, this is a problem.

I get it, you lost your only child. You’re in a lot of pain as a parent. But you were never a good parent to him. I was closer to him than you, by a long shot.
So, I had a meeting with the father, and told him not to worry about the court costs. I decided I was going to fund him in court.

Long story short about their divorce battle, but he wins, and gets to keep everything, and even gets a restraining order on her. He then files for credit card fraud, and puts all the debt on her.

I heard from the father that she was recently arrested for driving while drunk, and was search and has a decent stash of meth on her. She is currently awaiting trial for that, while the father is living a life now relatively stress free.
And I got to keep my lawn decorations.
RIP Johnathan. You are missed.

someone: i headcanon peter parker as trans

anyone with common sense and basic human decency: that’s a unique and valid way to look at his character. far out, dude. radical, my guy. and even if others don’t personally see it, there is no conceivable reason why that headcanon should really bother them or be met with negativity. you do you. happy vibes, man.

With thanks to @stuffedart​ who is probably sick of me by now. Although I went much more low-key because I’m a coward  shy (⸝⸝•́દ•̀⸝⸝) I don’t think I’m gonna upload these to dA for exactly that reason.

I also decided to throw in flower language even though it doesn’t really have anything to do with anything.

Oak-Leaved Geranium for Papyrus, which is “True Friendship”
Ox Eyes for Sans which is “Patience”
And Amaryllis for Frisk which is “Determination”

I wasn’t sure what to do for backgrounds…

They’re transparent :)

anonymous asked:

sorry but i don't understand why touka wants to have the baby? the future is uncertain and they're all starving. It's the worst time possible, so why bring a child into a world like that? i don't really get her reasoning plus i don't think kaneki would want it

I’m sorry, I really resent the idea that she’s being judged for her choices. I don’t think anyone can argue that having unprotected sex was irresponsible. Or that it’s pretty bad timing. But it happened- it’s said and done. Deciding whether to bring a child into the world or not isn’t just as simple as “oops, this is real shitty timing, lets just get rid of it”.

These things happen. Even to people who are trying to be careful with protection. It’s life. Deciding whether to terminate a pregnancy or having the child despite unfavourable circumstances is an incredibly tough and complex choice. Sometimes the decision is made using logical reasoning weighing the pros and the cons, sometimes it’s an entirely emotionally driven decision. I don’t think it’s right to judge either way.

When is it good timing for a ghoul to have a child? Ghouls are given a death sentence from the moment they are born in the world. Do you also condemn every single ghoul parent for bringing a child into a world where they’re likely to be slaughtered before they can reach adulthood? Should we be judging Mirumo Tsukiyama for having Shuu when the CCG could have found them out at anytime? Should we be judging Ukina and Yoshimura for having Eto when they knew what V’s response would be? These are the sort of ethical and moral quandaries that have been brought up literally the entire manga; is it ok for ghouls to live in a world that doesn’t want them?

And if you can’t see why Touka as a character would make the decision to do everything to bring her child into the world then I don’t know what to tell you- it’s been there since volume 3 of the original series:

Live. Even if this world says your existence is wrong. Live. Even if you have no choice but to kill to survive. Live. Even if everything has been terrible from the moment you were born.

This pregnancy is just an extension of those themes. 

I’m sure both Touka and Kaneki are going to be filled with doubts and fears about whether they’re doing the right thing, whether this is the best choice. And especially with Kaneki’s childhood, I can see why this would be a tough issue for him. Both of them grew up as orphans from a young age- do they even know how to be parents? But despite all those things, that doesn’t mean a child can’t end up being a blessing and they won’t want it just because it’s going to be tough. You can’t predict how the child’s life will end up, so Touka deciding to try everything to give it a chance to survive isn’t a guarantee to condemn it to a life of suffering. And if it is? That’s life.

i’m still not over the locket and i never will be

toby could have picked a million things to represent the game for the collector’s edition. the delta rune, flowey’s face, the red heart that’s the game’s icon, even something relating to a well-known character like sans or papyrus

instead, as the symbol of the game, as what he considers representing the game’s themes and message and imagery, is the locket representing the relationship between asriel and chara. the two most important characters in the game

everyone knows how important asriel is in this game. but if that doesn’t say everything about the importance that chara has too, about how deep their relationship with asriel was, about how chara is not evil or insincere but a tragic figure who loved their adopted family and their best friend and was loved by them equally back, about who it is that ultimately saves asriel in the end and saves the monsters with it? what does?

and then, for good measure, toby makes the locket a music box that plays memory. just to remind you that one of the game’s most important leitmotifs is not about asriel himself, but specifically about this locket. specifically, it’s about asriel and chara, and the importance asriel’s memory of chara has to the whole story of undertale
