idk how to explain whatever lol

How to Write Inclusive Fanfics.

After reading a post written by @tyratalksss, I’ve decided to further the topic of inclusiveness of the notorious “[y/n]”, and basically teach everyone how to properly write fan-fictions that actually leaves room for all readers. Trust me, it’s not as hard as you think.

- Admin Dayna


1. Avoid the use of Pronouns.

One thing I’ve noticed among fan-fictions - especially within the KPop community - is that people tend to forget that there’s actually a lot of males and gender-queer people reading and seeking representation. It’s not just females out here, sis. 

What should I do instead?

Because there are so many pronouns (9 to be exact), it’s a hard to try to throw them all in. While some people who are aware of the need for gender-neutrality tend to stick with “they/them” pronouns, I personally believe that it’s better to just leave out pronouns all together because some people don’t identify as they/them either.

It’s honestly not that hard to do! Because the POV of the fan-fiction is usually from [y/n]’s or [m/c]’s, differentiating who is being spoken of or about isn’t that hard. Just use “you”.

2. Abstain from Mentioning Specific Physical Features.

As a black girl with naturally kinky curly hair, I personally cannot simply throw my hair up in a messy bun, flick my hair back, or have fingers casually running through my hair. I’ll actually fight a bitch if they tried to finger comb my twist out. With that being said, when you mention subtle actions such as “hair blowing in the wind” or “licking [your] plump lips” can actually leave people out. Why? Because not everyone has long straight silky hair that blows in the wind. Not everyone has naturally plump lips to lick, lol.

What should I do instead?

Just avoid mentioning the specifics of whatever feature you’re trying describe. Don’t mention texture, length, color, height, weight, size, etc. Simply say “hair”, “skin”, “eyes”, “curves”. Because while everyone’s hair, skin, eyes, and curves are different, everyone still has some form of hair, skin, eyes, and curves. (unless you’re like… bald… then I’m sorry d00d idk wut 2 tell u lol).

Instead describe everything around said features. For example, describe the texture and color of the clothes on [y/n]. Does it fit [y/n] snug, or loosely? Instead explain how said physical attribute makes [y/n] look as a whole. Does the way [y/n]’s hair done give off a beautiful appearance? Is the aura of [y/n]’s appearance giving off an angst or optimistic vibe? What is [y/n]’s style?

3. Maintain Gender-Neutral Appearance/Style.

There’s a writing term called “Show VS. Tell”. It’s self explanatory; “showing” what’s going on is to describe the setting that hints to what’s going on (i.e. the smell of salt and the sound of crashing waves). “Telling” is when you simply say; “we at the beach, my guy”. When you describe to detail what [y/n] is wearing or how they look can actually lead to people assuming a gender. So if you describe clothing that’s conventionally feminine, people will assume it’s a female. If you describe something that’s conventionally masculine, people will assume it’s a man. 

What should I do instead?

What I personally like to do is think of outfits that pretty much any gender can casually wear. Describe an outfit that doesn’t lead to the assumption of a gender. For example, anyone can wear a large t-shirt and underwear (notice I said “underwear” and not “panties”) to sleep. Anyone can wander around in shorts and a tank top. Anyone can step out in jeans and a button up blouse. 

Think of Androgyny. You could honestly just think of [y/n] as androgynous, and everything else - even down to the behavior - will fall as gender-neutral.

4. Be Vague with Actions [Specifically for Smut Writers]

We don’t all have vaginas.

How do you finger a penis? 

iight then. That’s what I thought.

What should I do instead?

Sometimes, the best smut describes everything around sex and not the sex itself. Therefore; focus heavily on foreplay. Foreplay is all about suspense, and teasing. Think of this as literary foreplay. Put intense detail on how the kiss, the touch, the sensation of these two people together, skin to skin makes them both feel. That’s sexy all on its own.

Appeal to the reader’s senses. Whatever aura you’re going for, describe the setting in a way that compliments the concept. How does [y/n]’s partner smell? Where are they, what’s the lighting? What sounds are in the background? Are they alone? Is there people around? Is there a sense of danger, or security?

When it gets down to the actual sinning, do not describe the body parts in detail, describe the pleasure said action has given the person receiving instead. That way, the reader can fill in the blanks all on their own. I think the best smuts leave wiggle room for me to create some of the imagery on my own to appeal to my own kinks and guilty pleasures.

5. Use Realistic and Universal Character Traits.

Not all of us are going to erupt into tears when our s/o tell us they hate us… like iight, boo. Get out yo feelings and hmu when you done being petty. Not everyone gets jealous easily… I sure as hell don’t care if I see my s/o hanging out with another person??? That’s irrational???

I know that I personally struggle to enjoy fan-fictions simply because [y/n] isn’t relatable - and speaking with other people, I’ve learned that a lot of people have the same issue.

What should I do instead?

Everyone likes to describe themselves as funny, introverted at first, but loud and lively when they get to know someone. Everyone loves to think they’re hardworking but at some times can be super lazy. Everyone and they whole ass mama likes to go on adventures but sometimes enjoy just laying at home and watching Netflix. Basically, what I’m saying is use cliches. It’s totally fine to use them. Cliches are used often and stick around because as much as we hate to be cliche, we all relate to it somehow.

Use the Big Five Personality Traits; Ambiversion, Agreeableness, Conscientiousness, Neuroticism, and Openness. 


These 5 things can drastically open the inclusiveness of your writing. This can easily appeal to a wider audience. It’s not bulletproof, and there might be some people who even after this, still can’t relate; but the goal ultimately is to leave enough space for minorities to feel some sort of representation.

Hii sorry if you are not doing this but can you write about sarcastic and lowkey mean slytherin girlfriend and flirty gryffindor boyfriend?I think thats best ship tbh together they could rule the world or something lol

Gryffindor: oh my gosh, you are the most srubborn, hot headed, frustrating person I have ever met.
Slytherin: that explains it then.
Gryffindor: explains what
Slytherin: why you are so head over heels for me.
Gryffindor: whatever you are so full of it
Slytherin: *throwing herself against his back* I prefer the term confident.
Gryffindor: you would you lunatic~
Slytherin: Aw, you’re sweet.
Gryffindor: I hate you *totally doesn’t hate her*
Slytherin: Aw darling I love you too

*idk how gryffindors would flirt so I guessed*

@zetch505
actually he does!!
this is an email u could find in 2d’s computer back on the old kong studios site:

so it’s canon that he has kids…somewhere lol

i made sydney as a joke based on that email and then i thought “HEY but what if he was stuck with her for whatever reason????” and imo it was an interesting idea bc 2d isn’t dad material at all (i mean he can’t even pay child support properly lmao) so i thought it’d be fun to see how he tries (emphasis on tries bc he kinda sucks) to raise syd despite having p much zero experience with kids and stuff like that……and that’s basically how i came up with this au thing lol

I'm so confused about who I am...

I have had sex multiple times with different guys but I didn’t “enjoy” it and I didn’t necessarily “hate” it.. it was kind of annoying and just something I tolerate. I also don’t find guys attractive really.. I “say” I do, like if someone else says so then I do too because I feel like I should feel that way, if that makes sense? Like in middle school I was “obsessed” with Taylor Lautner but for no reason other than everyone else thinking he was hot… So I just “thought” I did too because everyone else did lol. But really I’m not attracted to anyone in that way… I just tell myself that I am because I feel like I’m “supposed to be”. Idk, just another weird thing about me that no one else seems to understand…Which I don’t understand either… I am not attracted to men. I am not attracted to women… I mean there are women that I think are really pretty but more of the “I wish I looked like you” not “I want to fuck/date you” lol. I wish I was attracted to someone because then I wouldn’t be so fucking confused. Like idk, I don’t even find celebrities attractive. Like the ones that everyone else is obsessed with.. like Channing Tatum or Ryan Reynolds… I don’t know how to explain it. Like I don’t think they’re “ugly” but I don’t think they’re “attractive” either. I say I think they’re attractive cuz everyone else says that but really I’m just whatever about them.. Or maybe I do find them attractive but I don’t know what it feels like to find someone attractive… Ugh I don’t fucking know it’s so confusing and I wish I was normal 😭😭😭

anonymous asked:

Okay I know I'm late to the game but, can you explain exactly what the mixtape delivery service is? Lol

last time she made mixtapes for people that were “soundtracks for whatever is going on in their lives”. this time the form just asks you how you would benefit from a mixtape. (maybe this go around they’re steering away from what inevitably resulted in a massive amount of saggy ass sad girl submissions that annie had to read through)(how she avoided becoming emotionally drained idk) …) i discovered a lot of amazing music when she did that show tho so I can’t wait (to have my lame ass submissions be repeatedly rejected 😃)!

anonymous asked:

I really appreciate your tags explaining why you disagree on the gendered suffixes post bc that's cis bullshit and it made me really upset when I read it

No problem buddy… I don’t even follow the project really but my trans friend does and its something that’s been bugging him so + I figured its kind of within the realms of this blogs theme to comment on it?

Idk they don’t seem to be open to criticism jusging by what’s on their blog rn lol… I can’t be bothered to try and explain things to someone who’s not even really going to consider them. I’m a little annoyed (a lot actually) but whatever, let cishets be cishets, that’s just how they be.

TOP 10 SHIPS TAG MEME

Top 5 (Edit: 10) Ships You’ll Go Down With To The Bitter End!

Tagged by the lovely @gruvia-lolu-nalu-jerza!! SO TERRIBLY SORRY! I didn’t get any notifications for this (T-T) I was scrolling through my activity feed when I saw this! FORGIVE ME! *hugs and cries anime style*

`~`~`~`~`~`~`

YOSH! So this is not in order cause I love them all so much (maybe the first ship a bit TOO much….ANYWAYS)!!! Don’t bash me if you don’t like any of these ships!

Sorry if I have more then one or two gifs XD

1. Ichigo Kurosaki X Rukia Kuchiki (Bleach)

CAN YOU TELL HOW MUCH I LOVE THEM?! I AM OBSESSED *tries to stay calm* be still heart, be still…

I shipped them (before I even knew the term “otp”) when episode 1 first came out! They just…belong together. Like, I could type a 10 page essay on why they are perfect together; however, I will not do that. They understand each other. They care for each other (a bit TOO much on Ichigo’s part lol although Rukia is getting there). They are literally the KING and QUEEN; DEATHBERRY; WHITE MOON/BLACK SUN. But, the most important thing about this ship is the way the look at each other - at least to me it is. That eye smex tho 

In conclusion………IT’S FUCKING CANON SO GTFO HATERS

2. Hitsugaya Toushiro X Karin Kurosaki (Bleach)

Now, I know you guys are probably like “WTF is wrong with you, steph?!” or “Why the hell do you ship them? They never meet in the manga!!” BUT!!! They had TWO episodes that mainly focused on them! I don’t care if they’re filler! Kubo could’ve made those two episodes about other things, like Ichigo and the gang or what goes on in Soul Society other than fighting or even Kannoji! *coughs* anyways…

I think they’re amazing together! They have great chemistry. Plus, I love it when Toushiro protects her from danger! (^3^) I’m just weird like that lol Just look at the HItsuKarin tags and see why I love them!

3. Okita Sougo X Kagura Yato (Gintama)

GOT7 MBTI

This is my typing of GOT7 (aka my number 1 bias group)

JB: ISTJ/ISTP, I think he’s mostly ISTJ now although I see his former ISTP show itself every now and then in his mannerisms and reactions, JB is very well mannered and has a sense of duty which drive his leadership in the group, not particularly feely, seems quite shy and quiet when not among his members, has said before that out of all the members, he woukd date himself if he was a girl because he’s known himself for 22 years (Si much?), JB was definitely an ISTP before the GOT7 days since he described himself as the “neighborhood gangster” (JB said that he would easily get into fights) and Jimin (from 15&) said that he used to be very cold but has softened up (aww)  

Junior: INFJ, speaks very poetically and abstractly and likes to read novels (Ni), always careful about other members’ feelings and is called the “mom” of GOT7, Yugyeom has said that Jr always thinks ahead (Ni) whereas he (Yugyeom) focuses on the present time, Jackson says Jr holds himself to very high standards (he said “Jr is like one of those people who become sad at getting a 97% on test and will sulk for a year about it),

Mark: INTP, (TBH I’m probably least sure of Mark) doesn’t seem particularly gregarious and doesn’t talk very much, INTPs do not like to pursue a romantic interest (Mark: “I want a girl who will make me want to be with her”) and are among the highest types likely to learn a foreign language. His friends back in CA and also Jackson both describe Mark as “down” to do whatever (hence the P I’m guessing?)

Jackson: ESFP, ESFP’s are also known as “The Performer” (need I explain this more?)

Youngjae: ENTP, I don’t get introvert vibes from him, he seems like he enjoys being around others, not very emotional (in GOT2DAY YJ was laughing as he was telling a (rather scary) story of how he almost got mugged lol), YJ also loves to troll people (a signature trait of ENTPs), he’s stated before that he doesn’t think he’ll ever get married (idk something all my ENTP friends have said before coincidentally)

Bambam: ExFJ, (I cannot tell if he uses Si or Ni because I’ve seen different things from him that could mean either Si or Ni but I’m leaning towards Ni), BB loves being around others, he’s the “Fan Service King” and is very kind to his fans (Fe), always spends alot of time trying on different airport outfits (J),

Yugyeom: ESTP, has said that he himself is very focused on the present, always dancing around and others in JYP have ranked him as one of the “craziest” JYP artists (Se), definitely a Ti user (bullying and disobeying his hyungs ect),

anonymous asked:

Doodle do you have any tips on drawings eyes? Mine always look wonky and not the same as each other and I'd like the fix that. Is there a certain good way to draw them? Do you think it's better to start with the iris or the outer part of the eye?

(sorry it’s so blurry you might wanna try going on mobile to properly view the image)

Okey dokie I drew this hoping it might be helpful but I’m shit at explaining either way so let’s go both. I usually go one eye at a time, but doing bit by bit for both eyes might be most accurate symmetry-wise. To be honest, I don’t really have a system for drawing eyes, and for the most part, I just go with the flow and draw whatever, but I realize that isn’t a good way, for both myself and people who ask me for help. 

Anyways, back to the explanation, if you have a digital art program that can flip the canvas, then that might be one of the most helpful things to check if it’s symmetrical, but when I draw on paper, I like to hold my paper up to the light and see the drawing from the back to check it. I can’t even trust myself to draw properly on one side without checking because my sense of balance is so off lol. Guidelines are your best friend when you’re trying to match up the eyes, and you’ll have an easier when you’re following those lines to make sure the details match up with each other. Also, if you’re trying to go for symmetry, try to use the same motions for the each eye so you don’t end up with something strange (idk how to explain this, but try to repeat whatever you drew on one eye to the other, but flipped). 

I’m really not the best person to ask, since I’ve struggling with symmetry myself, and I’ve been getting pretty pissy when I’m drawing because my old methods haven’t been working and now I’m basically starting from scratch lol. But just try to remember that in real life, eyes aren’t always perfectly symmetrical, so it doesn’t have to be perfect. Also, sometimes people won’t even notice if it isn’t all that symmetrical, so don’t fret if it’s something minor. I hoped this helped (to some degree) and I believe in you anon! If you have anything else you don’t understand, feel free to ask me again, (or someone else that actually knows what they’re doing) but I’ll try my best to explain!
