i'm probably not even good looking enough for you

  • Favourite person: Makes a nice casual comment under my post
  • Me: Oh my god how am I supposed to react do I say something in return or just 'thank you' or nothing at all? Thank you is kinda not enough, but if I say more maybe it would look like I'm overreacting over something trivial? Maybe then they're gonna think I'm weird and creepy. And if I don't say anything I probably come over as rude and they think I don't even care. But if I

is it bad that I feel like I'm not a pretty enough sapphic?? Like I've got crooked teeth and I'm too skinny and just,, ugh

I think most of us don’t feel pretty enough to be worthy of other girls. we’re taught (sometimes even from birth) to see other girls as competition. the things you notice about yourself are probably microscopic in comparison to your best features; our eyes are attracted to things that look out of place and we overlook the good things we see if they stay the same every day.

im sure if plyed with enough wine valerius will have time for all of us

God I sure hope so.

But I have my doubts. Do you have any idea how high his tolerance is?? He probably can’t even feel buzzed anymore - or really - we have no way of knowing what Drunk Valerius would be like Bc his blood alcohol content levels are consistently way above what is considered survivable.

But hey, sure, I’d like to see him drunk enough to kiss me, yes sure, very good, yes, please, and thank you ((but I’d probably be wasted off my ass too and wouldn’t remember it so… you win some and lose some I suppose…))

  • Underswap Me: I'm old enough to play this, right? Oh, wait. I'm fifteen. Probably am.
  • Outertale Me: Capcom 8 is the BEST planet to play games on. You get privacy...and everyone dresses like Mega Man...
  • Overtale Me: So these humans have SOULS that persist after death, enabling them to maybe...come back to life someday? Great, now I'm jealous of a species that doesn't even exist!

Hi, I am 15 and a hetero romantic bisexual. I feel bad, like I'm not bi enough, but I'd be lying if I said I'm straight. I don't feel like I can identity openly as bi because I probably won't date girls even though I am really sexually attracted to them. Sort of like my queerness is superficial. I don't know. I just don't have many people to talk to and just figured this out, any guidance?

looks like you came full circle! you’re right - it’s all a spectrum. there’s no such thing as being “bisexual enough”. if you’re bi, then you’re bi. no one is more bi than anyone else. 

have a good one :)

I have an antagonist whose power is the same as one from a popular series, not exactly the same, but close enough to be recognizable. It's even the same genre, if you can believe it. I thought of it before I ever read this series, probably before it was even made, but now I'm having second thoughts. I've asked a friend about this before and they've advised me to just think of something different, but that's easier said than done and I was so proud of what I'd originally come up with. Any advice?

Let’s take a good long look at the world of mainstream comics!

While some of these characters were deliberate rip-offs and there’s always a rowdy debate about who came first (SETTLE DOWN NERDS I AM WELL AWARE OF THESE ARGUMENTS don’t make me come over there), the point is originality is not the end all of writing.

It’s Doctor Who versus Diana Wynne Jones’s Chrestomanci, Harry Potter versus Neil Gaiman’s Books of Magic. You’ll find stories with similar concepts everywhere.

In the end, they’re all separate stories enjoyed by a good deal of people. Originality of a single idea doesn’t matter, your story matters. If it is a good story, people will like it.

Got any advice for someone who's trying to get an agent for the first time? I'm getting ready to start, and I'm all kinds of nervous.

So I know nothing of where you are in your writing career, and am thus going to have to make a few assumptions.  They are as follows:

1. You write genre, which makes me a good person to ask this question.
2. You have been working on your craft long enough to feel relatively confident in your ability to get an agent.
3. You have finished a full-length novel.

If any of these assumptions is incorrect, what I am about to say probably won’t help you.  I only have experience getting a genre agent; I didn’t even start looking until I felt like I was good enough; every agent I queried or spoke to really needed me to have a finished novel before they’d give me the time of day.  This was not a matter of rudeness on their part–finishing a novel shows that you have reached a point where you can put in that amount of work.

(Maybe you’re a short story author!  I do not know.  But most agents do not represent short story authors.  So if you are a short story author, this is maybe not a good career goal for you until you have sold a lot of short stories.)

So!  You have a finished genre novel, and you are looking for an agent.  Talk to people.  Find authors who write things you feel are similar to what you write, and ask them who represents them; ask if those agents are currently taking new clients.  (If they say yes, do not tell those agents that you were referred by the author who gave you their name.  I freely admit who agents me–Diana Fox, Fox Literary–but I tell her when I’m sending a direct referral.  She knows.  So if someone claims I referred them, she’ll know I didn’t, and it creates bad footing from the start.)

Read the agency website (most agencies have websites now) to find out how they prefer to receive queries, and follow those rules like they were graven on the side of a living unicorn by the hand of an angry god.  Guidelines are really more like inviolate rules by which all things will be judged.  You don’t need to stand out by formatting your letter in Comic Sans or filling it with cat pictures or whatever.  You will stand out based on the strength of your story and your incredible, near-legendary ability to follow the goddamn guidelines, which almost no one bothers to do, seriously, what the hell.  Following the guidelines demonstrates reading comprehension and your ability to be the kind of client an agent would want to work with.

Remember that agents are outnumbered by a factor of several thousand to one.  If you want to work in traditional publishing–which is not for everyone, but is basically the only way I can handle my shit, so I do recommend at least trying it for most people–you need an agent to be considered by most publishers.  Your agent will protect your interests in the name of protecting their own.  That said, imagine that you are standing in the middle of a cornfield being rushed on all sides by zombies, some of which are also on fire.  That is what it is like to be an agent.  If their guidelines say “responds within eight to twelve weeks,” wait until at least the first day of week thirteen to ask why you haven’t heard back.  Do not email them on the first day of week three going “Why is my genius not yet appreciated and showered in golden coins?"  This does not demonstrate reading comprehension, and will not endear you.  (Also, traditional publishing is slow as shit.  If someone can’t wait eight to twelve weeks, they’re not going to enjoy the submissions process.)

Once an agent has responded positively to your query, it’s time to remember that while you desperately want them to represent you, they will be working for you.  Not the other way around.  You get to ask questions!  For example…

"Where do you see my career going?”
“What have you been able to do for the other authors you represent?”
“How do you handle foreign rights?”
“How familiar are you with the genre in which I work?”
“Are you going to be cool with the fact that I fuck off to Disney World on the regular, and do not answer email while there?”
“I prefer to communicate via phone/email/passenger pigeon.  Is this going to be a problem for you?”
“How do you handle social media?”
“I write fanfic and I refuse to stop, is that going to be a problem for you?”

Ask if they have other clients who might be willing to talk to you about their experience working with the agent in question.  I have spoken to several people on behalf of my agent.  Any author who is willing to have that conversation will be willing to give you an accurate picture of what it is like to work with that agent.

A bad agent is better than no agent if what you want is to work in traditional publishing, because many houses do not consider unagented work.  That said, I would rather have no agent and more time to work on my fanfic than an agent who did not truly represent my interests and understand my needs.  Hold out for an agent who gets you.  They will be your greatest ally and advocate, and they will make your career more pleasant, more profitable, and more sustainable by a factor of a whole fucking lot.
