#Woke by: Mendy Mills

I am writing this after a bad Facebook experience. One of my Facebook friends put out this challenge.

“This ought to be fun. (crying laughing face) You wake up in a psychiatric hospital and find me sitting next to you. Using 4 words, what would you say to me?

It immediately struck me that this wasn’t right and I was compelled to comment in a thoughtful way that might hint at this person that maybe this was at the very least insensitive.

I replied, “Why is this funny?”

The person replied, “Good one.” (2 crying laughing faces)

She thought I was being clever. So I replied, “I was serious. No one would say,”You wake up in a cancer hospital and find me sitting next to you. What would you say to me?”I would say,” Thank God we don’t have mental illness. People would never stigmatize and make fun of a cancer patient. It breaks my heart.”

Here are some of my early ideas for Young Mom Carol and Baby KO!! I couldn’t find the high-quality copy of the semifinal drawing of Carol, so my hand-writing is basically legible. 

I was originally gonna give her a sort of a bob, but after Face Your Fears, I was inspired to have her keep her side-danglies from @scrotumnose‘s drawings of Silver Spark. I also thought I was clever to decide that Carol would have paw-feet, but I realized later that @ryannshannon had already decided that wayyyy back in the Carol short! Paw feet are the best!!!!!!!

Magnus Bane , phone conversation analysis

When Alec says “I’d rather you not” (be by my side the whole time), Magnus responds “Did I do something wrong?” Which reveals how insecure Magnus must be feeling, as rather than asking Alec what’s wrong? Or what do you mean? He instead jumps to the assumption that he must have done something that upset Alec.
You can see how worried he looks:

When Alec explains, Magnus looks down and smiles, a momentary sense of relief. But his smile drops as soon as it’s formed and he looks so dejected:

He then begins to pace, perhaps a sign of nervousness?

His suggestion that maybe “another warlock should go instead?” sounds like a genuine attempt to try and convince Alec to ask someone else, as I couldn’t detect any annoyance or sarcasm in his voice. Plus, when Alec reassures him “No, I need you there”, Magnus still doesn’t look happy:

In fact, rapid blinking is a sign of distress, and the way he hesitates with his mouth open looks to me like he is trying to think of something to say that could get him out of going.

When Alec asks “is that okay?”, Magnus smiles and shakes his head, perhaps generally moved by how sweet Alec is too make sure he is fine with this. Or maybe he is thinking about how impossible it is to say no to his boyfriend. Whatever is going through his mind that makes him feel happy doesn’t last though, as a moment later the smile falls from his face.

He hesitates for a second, before quickly replying “of course” doing his best to make his voice sound upbeat and certain, in order to convince Alec that he is fine. But as Magnus elaborates on why he agrees with Alec’s decision, we can see how nervous he is actually feeling because of the way his eyes frantically dart about and from how his hand is shaking his phone:

We don’t get to see Magnus’ expression when the phone call ends, but I doubt he would look happy at having to go back to the institute. Which is understandable given that the last time he was there, he was tortured. Of course, he will be nervous and perhaps even terrified that going back there will overwhelm him with traumatic memories, that he is trying his best to avoid thinking about. Plus, acting like you are okay when you are not is completely exhausting, so it is also understandable that he just wants to be alone, and doesn’t feel up to socialising and discussing politics.

I thought this scene was very clever because it shows how from Alec’s perspective, Magnus’ sounds fine. But we as a viewer who can see his facial expressions and body language know that is far from the case. Also, it further demonstrates how Magnus is doing his best to hide his pain and distress from Alec when he is clearly struggling. Luckily that will change in the next episode.

I paced the tiny length of my room at least a dozen times, trying to shake off what had just happened between Quill and I. Even with weeks of grazing touches and longing looks behind us, that was the closest we’d come to…to what? What exactly had I been about to say to him before Rocket had interrupted with his imperfect timing? That I had feelings for him? That he was right?

What was the inspiration behind "ILYSB"?

March 13, 2014, I was driving home to Hollywood from Santa Monica with a girl in my passenger seat who I really liked. She took a call from her sister really quick and ended the conversation with “I love you so bad.” I thought that was the most clever thing I had ever heard. I turned to her and said, “I’m gonna write a song called ‘I love you so bad.’” That girl and I kept hanging for a while, and we would say “I love you so bad” to each other and shorten it in text to “ILYSB.” about a month and a half after hearing her say that for the first time, I wrote all the lyrics for that song in an afternoon in my bedroom.

[about the way Margaery goes out] I thought it was really clever. I really did. It’s not an echo of anything you’ve seen in the last six years. It’s truly it’s own unique moment to tie up what’s been a unique storyline about what’s happened in King’s Landing over the course of season 6. I thought it was an inspired choice. And it’s really interesting that I am given a moment of some vindication at the very end, which was the perfect way for Margaery to leave the show. She’s given a platform to say that she was right, as she always is. But because the power was taken from her, she couldn’t do anything about it.

Big Mouth Review

So I just finished watching the Netflix show Big Mouth and it’s a lot better than I expected. A witty yet raunchy show about puberty with the adolescent teens which talk on issues that teenagers today need to talk about. Such as:

-Balancing Friends and Relationships.

- The Joys of your Genitals.


-Moving too fast in a relationship.

-Abusive relationships.

-Porn Addiction.

-Broken Homes.

-Consensual. Sex.

Honestly, the list goes on. I’m was mainly interested because my favorite comedians was in it, like Jordan Peele, John Mulaney and Maya Rudolph. It sends strong, funny and clever messages about life which regular media is too taboo to talk about. Also it had an Easter egg of Get Out which I thought was clever. I’ll show this to teens. Then again I’m not a parent. But to counter that point, kids are desensitize anyway.

The show is great. Really great. Watch it. If I didn’t have April during my dark teen years, I would wish for this show to be here. Because shit man. My parents didn’t teach me nothing.

Warnings: I don’t know if this is really a warning, but I felt like I should add it. If you’re color-blind in anyway or deal with anything similar this may be sensitive to some. Writing this definitely me think about how some people may not see colors and I tried to grasp the feeling in this fic.

Request from @palebun-16 :  Hello!! Could I request a peter Parker x female reader soulmate au where when you see your soulmate you start to see colors and peter sees them but only as spider man? And then the rest is up to you! Thank you!

A/N: Thank you for your request @palebun-16 ! This request really made me think. I thought it was a super clever idea and then I got scared because I had no idea how I was going to do it justice. It’s such a cool concept that I didn’t want to ruin. It was definitely a challenge for me! I’ve always struggled with writing but really appreciate the support and feel like I am improving. :) I hope you like it! Let me know what you think and requests are still open! We do have a few still were working on so it might take a while, but we are determined to do them all so thank you for your patience! 

Living in a colorless would can get quite boring, well to you at least. Everyone seemed to be used to seeing in black and white until finding their soulmate. A lot of people didn’t even seem interested in seeing colors, but that was not your case. Being a hopeless romantic gave you the dream to find that one person that would be your true love, and along with that came with the dream of seeing color. You couldn’t help but imagine what it felt like to have that one person that cared for you so deeply, and to care for them as well; having each other’s backs and going through life together as a team.

Writing Workshops: An Introduction

If you want to study creative writing–whether in high school, college, or outside of a typical school setting–you’ll undoubtably find yourself in a workshop. 

Writing workshops can vary wildly, but the basic premise is this: one writer shares their work and silently listens as a room full of other writers judge it. 

Depending on the instructions the people in that room are given, their experiences with workshopping, and their own writing know-how, workshops can either be be scary, unhelpful, humiliating, and downright depressing, or amazing experiences that fundamentally improve your ability to write. 

I’ve been workshopping for ten years– in high school, undergraduate, and graduate classes, and in informal workshops among friends.

Today, I want to share what I’ve learned over those ten years, because I believe that there’s no reason for a workshop to ever be a bad experience.

This is a bit long, so under the Read More you’ll find:

  • How to Workshop Someone Else’s Story
    • Reading a piece for workshop
    • Discussing a piece in workshop
  • How to Deal with Other People Workshopping Your Writing
  • An Example of a Not-So-Helpful Critique
  • An Example of a Helpful Critique
  • What to Do If You Find Yourself in a Hostile Workshopping Environment
