I either want Nesryn and Yrene’s first meeting to be Yrene tripping over her feet and falling in front of Nesryn and flashing her a big grin and Nesryn finds her adorably cute. Or Yrene walking dramatically down a long flight of stairs because she is the High Healer or whatever and it’s a great honor to be in her presence and Nesryn’s jaw literally drops to the floor.
How do I ask my friends to stop using my deadname and stop using she/her pronouns? I've come out to them but they still don't call me by my actual name or use they/them I don't want to be rude but I'm sick of not feeling valid at all around the people I'm closest to....
Andy: It sounds like they’re the ones being rude, love. Tell them.
lmao I was just digging around on chii’s blog for an old carwash fic of hers when I was confronted with the fact that she and I and some others were REALLY into shipping Carolina/Director before episode 22 of season 10 was released
I'm having a lot of trouble thinking of names for places in the novel I'm working on, and I obviously don't want to leave them with names like the desert and the capitol. Do you have any methods or tricks for naming places? Any help would be greatly appreciated
So, when I’m stuck, I usually go to name generators. For towns, if it’s just a normal town and I’m looking for some inspiration, I’ll play around with generators like this one to help come up with something I like. Names too - I look at lists of baby names. Based on the age of the character, I’ll pick from the top 100 baby names the year they were born (only if no name is coming to mind and I’m not looking for anything special anyways). I particularly like this website.
If I’m trying to come up with a name with meaning for an important place - I’m a bit of a Classics geek - I turn to Latin and Greek roots and play around with what might make it sound more like the name of a city. For a capital, I might pick something that feels titanic or domineering, but it depends on what I’m going for. A lot of the time I don’t think too hard on it. I just make something up on the spot so that I can keep writing. I always will play around with the name while I’m procrastinating, but more often than not, the name I made up on the spot usually sticks - there’s usually a reason why it came to mind and the more I try to pick something new, the more I end up preferring the spur of the moment name.
Seventh Sanctum is also a great resource. I can’t say I ever really use any of the names in the generators, but it usually prompts some kind of inspiration that with help me come up with a name on my own that I’ll use instead. For that reason, it’s pretty helpful. I hope this helps! Happy writing!
Lmao this is terrible timing bc the EXO mvs just came out but for the anons who asked me to make them a guide for Boys Republic, here you go.
I am a very new Boys Republc stan and I am terrible at powerpoint so I apologize for the quality. For more information please watch Boys Republic Rookie King or consult the following folks for more information about their biases:
Onejunn: twojunn (and based on the url, I believe 1junn is also Onejunn biased)
realistically ki&-/no’s “art tips” or whatever the fuck they posted like a year ago made me shut down and stop drawing for months. some of the bullets weren’t even things that would really help, it was just “accept you’re a mediocre artist” like? I’ll Pass? that’s one of my biggest fears coming from someone who’s art is Wildly Popular
don’t accept that you’re mediocre- accept that right now you may not be where you want or like what your art looks like, but you have to look at it all the time, imagine how other people see it instead? art is always improving as long as you keep drawing
