if someone finds it send it to me and i'll put it in the post

Be a d*ck to your freelancer? I'll have your job.

(warning: long story)

Backstory:

This happened about 3 years ago. I was still in college for digital marketing (like advertising and graphic design). Since I had no time to work even a part time job, I would do some freelance graphic design in the little time I had. Mainly in the later hours of the night, I would still answer emails during the day though. It was good money, a couple hundred here and there, but it wasn’t enough. The company that ran the cafeteria in my school went through bankruptcy and I was taken off our 21-meals-a-week plan. I had to resort to putting (very) small ads in the newspaper and started looking for more jobs online rather than posting a listing on Craigslist as I previously had. I got a few good jobs, everything seemed great at this point.

Then the fatal night happened. I received an email at about 10:45 at night. It was mid-week so it was a bit odd for someone to be emailing me this late, especially since I had school the next day and they probably had work. Right off the bat I had a sketchy feeling about this, as the subject was “I need an ad made” and the message was “Ok?”. As per usual, I respond right away asking for more details. He said he had ran a custom shower company and he wants me to Photoshop a picture, add text and then format it for billboard printing.

He sends me the image and it’s a “custom” shower with two shower heads that are on. He wants me to remove one of the heads. I tell him that it will be difficult due to the fact the streams are crossing. He replies with “So? Just f*cking do it.” I finish the ad for him and I’m about to watermark it so I can send him a final copy then request payment. Then I realize that it’s already f*cking watermarked, faintly in the corner by another shower company, and it doesn’t match his. This douchebag motherf*cker stole a picture from another local company.

I tell him that I won’t do the ad because he’s using a copyrighted picture, and that I can replace it and keep the text. He “rages” and claims that he took the photo with his phone earlier that week. At this point I have better things to be doing, so I block his emails, as they were getting to be harassment.

Fast forward two weeks.

I get a call from an unknown number saying that I f*cked up and that he just paid another designer “big bucks” for the same job. These calls continue over the next week and I just start ignoring them.

Here’s where something magical happens. He starts texting me, but it’s with his actual f*cking number. I think he tried to *67 me, but it doesn’t work through texting. This will come back to bite him in the ass when we get to the revenge part.

Here’s where the revenge comes in:

After the semester ends, I decide to drive around 2 hours to visit my parents for the week I have between the semesters. While I’m driving on the freeway I see something familiar. It’s the photo the guy wanted me to make into an ad for him on a billboard. Then I realize that the ad on the billboard is for HIS F*CKING COMPANY, although he clearly didn’t hire another designer. It looks as if he made it in MSPaint. I get off at the next exit so I can get a few pictures and write down the location.

When I get back from my parents’ house, I immediately start up my computer and try to get into contact with the company who owns the photo. I send them the pictures and location along with his emails. They thank me and I happily go to bed.

Fast forward a month.

I get a call on a Saturday morning saying that the company who owns the photo needed me to come in to their offices to discuss a few things. Turns out that they ended up filing a lawsuit over the copyright issue as he still claimed it to be his photo.

The judge told me while I was in court (as a witness) that I would be able to file for harassment and get a restraining order. Normally I wouldn’t care, but the harassment would go on his record.

Because of all the legal fees, his company went under. I later found out that he tried to start up another company of similar sorts but he would have to tell his employees of his harassment charge. That company went under as well because he couldn’t find anyone to work for him.

Get f*cked.

You spot Newt’s lanky frame curled up in the grassy spot near the lake, knees against his chest and hands around his knees as he stares out over the water, His shaggy hair blows like the waves in the breeze. You can’t fight your smile as you watch him absentmindedly brush his hair from his eyes. You reach into your pocket, forgetting that your gift is back in your room, hidden between the pages of your transfiguration textbook. You remind yourself that it’s only one more day before you can give it to him. One more day.

He doesn’t hear you approaching, jumping at your voice when you call out to him.

“There you are.” The words are a routine, a joke from nearly a year ago when Newt had approached you with shaking hands.

Newt starts to stand, but stops when you shake your head and toss your books onto the ground, plopping down next to him. “Here I am.” He says, scooting over as you take his hand.

“Studied any amazing creatures lately? It feels like it’s been forever since I’ve seen you.”

Newt’s smile is small. “It’s only been a week and a half.”

You raise your eyebrows and lean back. “Sure feels like forever.”

Newt stares at your joined hands. “Maybe.”

The breeze slows, leaving only the warm sunshine to brush your face. “It’s beautiful out. I hope it stays this way for tomorrow.”

“About tomorrow…”

You don’t notice the change in Newt’s tone as you chatter on. “Wow, can you believe it’s been a year? Isn’t a picnic the perfect way to celebrate a year together?”

COMMISSION STATUS: OPEN!!!
IF INTERESTED, PM ME!
PLEAS READ INFO BEFORE MESSAGING!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

RULES:

* All payment is upfront! Once I am paid, I will get started with the commission. I will not wait for payment nor accept money afterwards. No exceptions!

*
 Do NOT rush me. I do not work well under pressure or being constantly hassled with, it’s very stressful and I will only end up working slower. I am a person, not an art machine, and sometimes things can come up to where I will be busy (I will warn you when your commission(s) is going to be delayed with a reason). Art takes time, and it does not get done within an hour. Some art takes longer than other, so please respect that and be courteous as I am human, just like you.

There is no promised time period of when your commission will be done. Once I am paid, I get started immediately and try to get the work done as soon as possible, but not rushing too much. Depending on how detailed your commission is, it can take awhile, from a few hours, to days, to maybe even a week or two. It all depends on how much detail there is. There are also times where personal business comes up to where I can’t work on your commission at that moment, you will be notified about that.

*
 You can check up with me about the progress of your commissions every now and then, and I will send you W.I.Ps of your commission. But again, do NOT make it a constant thing and do NOT hassle me (ex. asking me daily). I will get your commission done as soon as possible, please be patient.

*
 If you want something changed in your commission, ask while there is a sketch in progress! Once the line-art and color is put in, it is too late to make any changes! I will send you an update with your commission every now and then to show that your commission is getting worked on if asked to do so!

*
 Do NOT complain about the prices. I set up the prices based on how long one piece takes me and how much work and effort is put into it. If you do not like the prices, then do NOT commission me and find someone else. There are plenty of other artists who may suit your tastes better. I refuse to undersell myself, and I believe that I make the prices fair.

* BE RESPECTFUL!
 I will not tolerate any sort of disrespect to me. If you are rude, I will not do your commission and you will be blacklisted. Also, depending on how much work I did on, you won’t receive a full refund. I will be keeping some of the money, depending on what I ended with.( Ex. I did the icon linework and ended the commission there due to your amount of disrespect, and you paid for a simple shaded icon, I’m keeping the amount that the icon linework cost. Make sense? It’s only fair.) ! And depending on just how rude you were, you may even get a call-out post to warn others about what type of customer you are (and trust me, I will have evidence). Be nice to me and I’ll be nice to you, this is a friendly place, not McDonalds. Respect the artist and appreciate the fact that someone is taking the time out of their day to do something for you. Treat others the way you want to be treated.

* ALL SALES ARE FINAL!
 Meaning there are no refunds! Once you pay me and I start working on a commission, you will be denied of refunds! Especially if I already started coloring/shading the picture! I’m sorry, but once I work on something, it is going to get finished. It’s pretty unfair to ask for money back (for whatever reason) and I already put effort and detailed into your commission, plus in a way, it’s also rude.

* Now you don’t need to do this one if you don’t want to. But if you are satisfied with your commission(s), a tip is always appreciated and helpful for me! It doesn’t matter if it’s a big tip or a small tip, I will highly appreciate it!! If you give me a really generous tip, you will most likely be getting a free extra drawing as well! (the type of drawing will be random). Consider it a way to show that I am grateful for your tip and you commissioning me!

* I will be doing commissions in order! If someone has commissioned me first before you, then their commissions gets done first! There are no exceptions and I do not want to hear complaining. It is disrespectful to not only me, but to the previous customer! 

These rules are not hard to follow, all you gotta do is basically just be nice and respectful, be patient and courteous, and be understanding! If you do not like nor agree with my rules, then simply do not commission me. There are no exceptions. Thank you.

Imagine being afraid of telling Jared that you’re pregnant

I can see Emma’s disapproval all over her face. She isn’t happy with me, and I’m not happy either, but there was no other choice. I had to go.

“Just tell him, he’ll understand!”

“It was a mistake from the beginning, he’s my boss, you just don’t have one night stands with your boss” I mutter, afraid that Jared might show up in the studio at any second.

“But you are pregnant” She whispers, the disapproval turning into anger.

I throw her the first thing I can find, which turns out to be one of Jared’s chocolate bars.

“Hey!” We hear Jared shouting from the door, “That’s my chocolate”

“Sorry” I whisper, running to Emma to pick out the bar.

Jared looks at us, and something on his face changes. When we comes near us, the suspicion on his face is obvious.

“You two look really pale” He mutters, changing his gaze from Emma to me, “Are you two ok?”

Emma looks pale because she’s scared. She wants me to tell Jared, but overhearing our conversation wouldn’t be a great way to find out he’s going to be a father. I look pale because I’m scared too, but also because I feel sick. I don’t even know how he hasn’t noticed that I spent half of my day in the bathroom, that’s how Emma find out.

“I need to go to the bathroom” I excuse myself.

Morning sickness was the worst, but mine was more like a whole-day sickness. Being pregnant should be pretty, not being afraid that the father of the baby will not want the kid, and spending your day puking.

During the day I receive Emma’s different stages of emotions through her looks. We have been working together for so long, that I could read her with just one gaze. At times she gives me looks that could only mean ‘Just fucking tell him’; when I get up to go to the bathroom she’s like ‘Ew’, but when I come back I receive the sympathetic look of ‘You poor thing’.

By the end of the day, the only look I receive is ‘Don’t you dare’. But I most certainly will.

Emma says her goodbyes for the day, leaving me with one more ‘Don’t you dare’ look. I just wave her off, walking towards Jared’s desk. As always, he’s busy working on his laptop, not even noticing that I’m standing in front of him.

“Jared” I stutter, trying to get his attention.

“Oh, hey” He says, finally acknowledging my presence with a smile, “I didn’t see you there”

I can do this, right? His smile can’t be a factor that makes me chicken out.

“I really need to talk to you”

The smile disappears in a second and worriness takes over his expression. He takes my hand to make me sit by his side.

“Is something wrong? Are you ok?”

“I just… God. Okay, I’m just gonna say it” I sigh deeply, trying to calm myself down, “I’m quitting”

“Wait, what?”

I stand from the couch, starting to pace out in the room.

“Is this because of what happened between us?” He asks, and I can notice a bit of nervousness on his tone.

“I just can’t work for you anymore” I whisper, avoiding his gaze, “This is gonna sound extremely cliché, but it’s not you, it’s… well, me”

“Ok, now I feel like you are breaking up with me and we are not even together” He laughs nervously, standing to stop my pace.

His hands wrap on my arms holding me still, trying to look me in the eyes, but I just avoid him still.

“Did I say something wrong? I can’t think of a reason why you would want to leave except for that night” His hand leaves my arm to hold my chin and make me look at him, “You regret it?”

He sounds hurt, and I don’t want him to be hurt. I’m just scared of what may happen if I spit all out. If he wanted kids, he would have had them by now, it’s not like he didn’t have opportunities before. If he didn’t want to give this huge step with long term girlfriends, what guarantees me that he would want to do it with me? I’m just a one night stand.

“I’m really sorry, Jared”

I manage to let go of his grip, walking to get my bag and get the hell out of there. My old car waits for me outside, and we drive home in complete silence, I can’t even stand music right now. I just want to be alone.

By the time I get home, I really need to go to the bathroom. I had avoid my mom’s medicinal herbs for sickness scared of what they may do to the little one, but I was already sick of all the pucking, maybe some weird tea wasn’t going to be that bad.

I follow the instructions that mom left with the bag of herbs, waiting for the kelt to be ready. I read the instructions over and over again, trying to get Jared out of my head.

I was the worst, I was denying him the right to be a father just because my head wouldn’t imagine him as one. Or, actually, I could imagine him; holding the baby on his arms, kissing the little forehead, feeding him or her when I was too tired to breastfeed. Or just looking at the baby in a crib, his eyes shining at the sight of our creation.

God, where did this amazing idea of quitting appeared?

The whistle of the kettle takes me out of my perfect world, one where I was smart enough to tell Jared the truth and not run away like a coward.

When my tea is ready, I grab a bag of chips, I really want some chips, walking back to my living room. I lay on my couch, turning the tv on, drinking my tea, eating chips. I repeat the process for hours. Watch, drink, eat. I don’t want to think about Jared, the baby, or my unemployed situation.

The beeping of my phone takes me out of the groggy zone, almost fully asleep. I jump on the couch, scared by the sudden sound in the silent room. When I finally calm myself down, realizing that it’s just my phone, I read the message that just came in.

“Jared called, I didn’t told him! I swear!”

Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Emma, what the fuck did you do?!

Another text comes in, and I’m already shaking.

“Well, I may have told him that he was stupid and blind for not noticing how changed you’ve been since… well, you know”

Not a minutes passes before I receive another one.

“Ok, I didn’t say stupid, ‘asshole’ is a better representation”

When no other text comes in I decide to text her back, “He knows?!”

“No, I mean, I don’t know”

“Maybe” She finally sends, ending the exchange with a sad emoji.

I grab my blanket, hiding under it, feeling my heart trying to escape my chest. My breathing is heavy, and my hiding spot does not help to calm my nerves. I take the blanket off my head, looking around, trying to find somewhere to hide.

The doorbell rings fast, someone is pressing it with desperation, and I know who that is. But I’m still trying to find a hiding spot, even though my whole living room is lighted up, and my car is outside. There’s no way to hide the fact that I’m inside.

I stand from the couch, walking to the door, not even looking who is on the other side.

“I’m so, so stupid” Jared says the second I open the door, letting himself in, “I didn’t even notice, I’m such a fool”

Jared sits on my couch, taking my bag of chips to eat some while looking at me. I close the door, walking as calm as I can, sitting by his side.

“Sorry, I didn’t grab lunch” He says, handing me the bag of chips, “I’m starving”

“I can prepare you something if…” I say, starting to stand, but he grabs my wrist.

“No, we need to talk”

I sit again, looking at his hand on my wrist. Suddenly he starts to laugh, taking his free hand to cover his mouth. His eyes are shining, I can even see myself in them, scared as shit.

“Are you okay?” I ask him, “I mean, are you okay with this?”

“Of course I am!” He shouts, cupping my face with his warm hands, “I’m more than happy!”

The fear finally abandons my body, letting a wave of relief and happiness take over. I jump to wrap my arms around his neck, his hands holding me closer to him.

“I love you too” He mutters, “It feels so good to finally say it.

Hold on…

“What did you just say?” I ask, pulling away from him.

“I love you” He repeats, the smile forming into confusion, “Isn’t that what we are talking about?”

“Oh, God…”

I stand from the couch, walking to the kitchen, trying to hide from him again. He thinks I’m in love with him, which is actually true, but that isn’t the reason why I was so scared! My hands go over my belly as I lean on the sink. Why do I have to be nauseous in a moment like this? I drench my face, trying to catch as much air as possible.

“Are you okay?” He’s the one asking this time.

I just nod, drying my face with a paper towel.

“You are not okay” He mutters, and as I turn around to face him, I can see the recognition on his face, “You’ve been sick all week…”

“Jared” I try to interrupt him, but he continues.

“Emma said that I was an asshole for not noticing what was going on with you”

“I’m so sorry, Jared” I mumble, walking to stand in front of him.

“Oh God, you’ve been sick more than just this week”

Jared just stands there, looking at me, trying to find some answers. Both of his hands hold my arms, never leaving my gaze. I get lost on his expression, the fear, confusion and… excitement?

“Jared?”

“You are pregnant?” He finally asks.

My head lowers as soon as I hear the word come out of his mouth. I can hear him laugh again, asking the question a second time. I give him a simple nod, and his hold on me disappears. But now for long.

Jared wraps his arms on my waist, lifting my feet off the ground. I can hear him laugh, saying the same word over and over again.

“Pregnant! Pregnant!”

I can feel the sickness again, and I plead him to put me down. When he does, I can see the smile on his face, this light on his eyes, the way his hands just want to touch me, pull me to him.

“I’m sorry, are you okay? Did I hurt you?”

“I’m okay” I whisper, realization finally coming to my head. He knows, “Just a bit dizzy”

“Oh, I can’t believe it! You are pregnant!” His hands hold me again, pulling me toward his chest, and suddenly everything is too much.

The tears start rolling down my cheeks, all the emotions I held back for two weeks can now be discarded, kicked away. I feel free, and the tears are proof of that. I hear him calling my name, asking me over and over again if I’m okay. I nod, crying, then smiling, then crying again.

“I’m happy” I finally say.

A relieved smile appears on his face. His hand grabs mine, pulling me to the living room. He falls on the couch, making me fall by his side, holding me tight against him.

“We need to check with the doctor, they need to check you for your morning sickness” He starts talking really fast, “We need to tell everyone after that, or maybe we can wait for a few weeks, just to be sure everything is going alright”

“Jared” I try to stop him, letting out a nervous laugh.

“Can Emma be the godmother?” He continues, “You can pick the godfather”

“Hey” I reach for his face, placing my hand over his mouth to shut him, “Calm down”

He tries to speak again, but I can only hear a mumble.

“We need to discuss another thing” He says as I let go of his face, my eyebrows raise, waiting for the new topic, “Work”

“Oh…”

“I want you back, especially now”

I hold his hand, thinking about it for a few seconds

“Ok” I say, after a deep sigh.

“Excellent!” He exclaims, pulling me to his chest again.

Jared continues planning  our future together, the future for our baby. I just listen, still in shock about everything that just happened. I was a fool by hiding all this from him. He’s happy, we are both happy, and that’s all that matters.

APH TWT Episode 13 Notes

I’m considering doing a series here, where I take the new episodes in The World Twinkle and add notes relevant to the characters’ MBTI typings.  I’m going to try it now and see what kind of reception it gets, and then decide whether or not to continue.  This’ll be a long post, so bear with me.

Screenshots come from Hetascanlations’ translation, which can be found on their blog.  It would be awesome if you checked them out, if you haven’t already.  They can be found at hetascanlations.tumblr.com.

anonymous asked:

It's hard not to ship 2jae... The way jaebum looks at him w so much fondness.... Like the sun shines out of youngjae's ass (it does he's not wrong) it's just so sweet and nice he's always looking out for youngjae what a sap. I think youngjae is less open about affection but he seems to soften up around jaebum a lot as well, they're just so sweet and gross I love 2jae I love you for talking about 2jae

My lovely anon,

I adore you for sending me this message about 2jae and giving me an opportunity to commandeer your ask to talk about them more! I would apologize… but I’m really only regretful that it’s taken me so long to write this reply!

The way Jaebum looks at Youngjae so fondly is honestly almost too much. I mean, really. For how much they tend to try to keep their close relationship fairly quiet, you would think Jaebum would have better control of these heart eyes. But I will honestly never be over how intently and adoringly he watches whenever Youngjae does… well, anything really! Because of how obvious Jaebum’s love and affection for Youngjae is, I find that it’s really the main thing that gets talked about regarding 2jae. But it makes me really happy that you also bring up Youngjae’s side of things in your message, my lovely anon, and I do hope you don’t mind if I take the chance to talk about my feelings on this~

I think it’s true that we do see less obvious affection from Youngjae, but rather than implying that he cares less than Jaebum like it could be interpreted by some I think it just shows the ways in which they’re different from each other. Jaebum has implied through his lyrics that he “can’t hide” his feelings from his face, but Youngjae is much more prone to keeping his thoughts and problems to himself. In an interview he actually stated that he’s the type to hide his feelings even if he likes someone. ( x ) Which leads to my opinion that Youngjae’s very shyness about expressing his affection implies how much he really cares about Jaebum and how real and strong his feelings probably are!

Since he prefers to hide his emotions, it makes sense why he would be hesitant to be affectionate directly in front of an audience or cameras. Of course, there are exceptions like when Youngjae was clinging to Jaebum during their Fly win stage, but he was also the first to pull away when Jaebum crossed over to hold his hand.

(GIF by demfluffycheeks)

Yet, when I watch the moment, the way Youngjae lets go looks almost reluctant, like he wants to keep holding Jaebum’s hand, but he’s too conscious of the cameras and all the people. I think he wants to show his affection, but he’s too shy and nervous about it. I think it’s important to note though, that the times he gets stressed or emotional, he tends to turn to Jaebum for physical comfort, like when he got pranked

and then in the GOT7ing episode where he was actually begging Jaebum to hug and hold him while he was blindfolded. And also couldn’t see all the cameras… significant??

Another instance of Youngjae initiating affectionate skinship with Jaebum happened when they were at an airport and Youngjae seemed to be unaware of or too tired to care about the camera that was filming them, and started trying to cling onto Jaebum and Jaebum was the one to put some space between them.

And, for me, moments like that and this and the fact that they used to sleep while cuddling suggest that it’s only really in public that Youngjae is timid about skinship with Jaebum!

I think Youngjae is more comfortable with expressing his affection and also accepting Jaebum’s affection when it’s in the form of playing together. They’ve always had a very playful and flirtatious teasing relationship ( x x x x x x x ), and I think that playful connection is still very central to their relationship now! ( x x x x x ) In these instances, I want to point out not only how they make each other laugh, but also the way they turn to each other so deliberately, even if the action is intended to be for the fans!

But, in some ways, I think Youngjae’s affection for Jaebum is almost the most visible when he isn’t there. ( x x x x )

I think missing and worrying about the person he cares for is what makes him less concerned about whether he’s revealing his feelings by acting too open or “obvious”.

I feel as if I’ve done a terrible job of actually conveying what I want to say in this monstrous mess, and I have so much more I could talk about… but this is already getting much too long! I just really wanted to take some time to appreciate Youngjae’s affection for Jaebum, shown in his own way! Even though he tends to be less open about affection and more reserved about his feelings, he still genuinely cares, and the fact that he’s so much more shy about interacting with Jaebum than with most of the other members (even though we know that 2jae are close) makes me think that it’s all an effort to hide really strong emotions, romantic or not. Though, honestly, I struggle to see why he would try so hard to hide his love for Jaebum if it was just platonic… While he may not cling to Jaebum, and he’s more likely to avoid skinship than seek it out, Youngjae does still show affection for Jaebum in a lot of different ways, and I think it’s just as important to acknowledge in any conversation about 2jae!

SO this past weekend I went to Florida Supercon and had a GREAT TIME!! Cindy Morgan, Bruce Boxleitner, and David Warner were there the whole weekend and had a panel and signings. I took notes during the reunion panel with all three of them and Bruce Logan, cinematographer for the original film. It’s probably a little out of order, but here’s what I remember and wrote down. Sorry to anyone on mobile, it’s long!

  • All three of them are completely adorable and super funny. David Warner is the cutest most gracious old man on the planet. Bruce was chatty and clearly enjoying himself, and Cindy is SUPER knowledgeable about literally everything to do with the film and film in general. Bruce Logan told us some cool stuff about the filming of the movie. Basically, it was really fun getting to hear all of them talk
  • Some introductory stuff, everyone said hi and then they jumped right into talking about the film
  • I forgot to take notes at first but they talked about the actual filming for the movie and how none of them really had a clue of what was going on, but Lisberger showed them all storyboards to try to help them figure things out, and Bruce Logan talked about some cool cinematography stuff like how the sets were all covered in black fabric and stuff to absorb light
  • Cindy and Bruce said there weren’t marks on the set for where they had to run to, so they had to mark it out, map out their movements backwards at a running pace, and take the mark away right before they had to film and pray they hit the right mark
  • Cindy has a lot of broadcasting experience so she was talking about how the movie was filmed and she knew so much it was REALLY COOL listening to her talk about it!
  • Cindy mentioned that she and Bruce have a deal: she doesn’t talk about broadcasting, and he doesn’t talk about horses
  • (Guess what he talked about during his own panel. I swear to god)
  • I started actually taking notes here so things are a little more specific
  • David mentioned that right before the premiere, Lisberger told him the film wasn’t actually totally finished with post-production because there were so many frames to color, which were colored internationally in a bunch of different places using animation light-boards
  • Cindy mentioned she was terrified of David in the scene where Sark tells Yori and Flynn the Carrier is going to derezz and they’re going to die. “When he told me I was gonna die, I BELIEVED IT. That was not acting!” And David told her “Thank you for that, darling”
  • They talked about that scene a lot actually, and Bruce remarked that the experience of filming with David made the whole thing feel very real and David turned to him and said deadpan “That’s because I’M very real”
  • Bruce says Lisberger was sadistic with the frisbee training. A traumatic experience
  • David mentioned that they didn’t have frisbees in the UK, apparently, so he had no idea what the heck they were. He also mentioned that unlike Cindy and Bruce, most of what he could remember from the film was just shouting “KILL THEM! GET THEM!” and that years of drama school training led him to that moment. Also mentioned that while he enjoyed playing the villain in a lot of his roles he also LOVES to play good guys and wishes he had more of them in his filmography. Quite a few people mentioned Time Bandits to him, where he played another big villain
  • Bruce asked David if he remembered when he gave him “a very deep middle part in his hair” and David was like “excuse me” and Bruce (VERY enthusiastically) described when Tron flings his disc at Sark’s head and Sark’s brains spill out. David: “I thought that was Time Bandits!”
  • David’s favorite role is, according to him, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Secret of the Ooze, because he got to play a GOOD guy scientist and his kids got to see him as a good guy
  • Someone asked if any of them were aware of the impact the film would have while they were filming and they all said no, but it was great to see how many people were still passionate about it. Cindy said that was basically her favorite part of it all, that she gets to see and talk to people who clearly still love the movie and get super passionate about it. (She actually talked about that a lot and it warmed my cold bitter heart)
  • Someone asked about Kingdom Hearts 2. David said he couldn’t remember it much (which might be because he didn’t actually reprise his role, iirc he intended to but had to bow out bc of filming commitments) but Bruce said, “I was with Donald Duck through most of it. Which was a lot of fun because he’s a hero of mine” and said that he liked doing it because his youngest son played the game and finally thought Bruce was cool. “Dad, that’s you! You’re cool!” “That IS me! I AM cool!” 
  • Someone asked what their favorite scenes were in the film. Cindy said it was the scene where she’s waiting with Dumont in the I/O tower and that even though people spent about twenty minutes arranging her legs on the steps and Bernard Hughes was sweating terribly in his costume, when she saw the movie she thought the scene was totally beautiful.
  • Bruce answered that his favorite scene is when Tron walks down the hallway and sends the disc to Alan, and that he felt silly filming it but seeing it in the film was also beautiful and very spiritual
  • (I got a little emotional at their answers bc the I/O tower sequence is my FAVORITE)
  • Bruce Logan said he really loved the camera work they got to do in the tanks and Recognizers because they were able to actually move the camera around, whereas most of the other shots were stationary.
  • Cindy says that when they filmed the final scene in the System, where Dumont and Yori and Tron look out over the scenery, they were in the corner of a room with a wall literally a foot in front of their faces having to act like they had all this space in front of them
  • Someone asked Cindy and Bruce about the deleted love scene. Cindy talked about how it was cut very late into the editing process. Bruce said mostly he remembered their costumes and specifically their hairstyles in that scene. Paraphrased: “I had my hair all styled upwards and it was supposed to indicate that we had made love”, and he also called it ‘post-coital hair’ and Cindy was like “BRUCE there are children in the audience” and Bruce paused and said “Well, they won’t be at some point.”
  • Cindy talked about her hair and outfit too–she said Bruce was lucky because he was in his usual outfit but she had a new one that she was literally sewn into, and it had a fancy cape. “The internet calls it the sparkly-cape.” (YEAH) They also took a super old fashioned crimping iron to her hair for that scene and the next day she was washing it and smelled burnt chicken feathers, and her hair was coming out in CLUMPS.  Also traumatic. The stylist was very distraught 
  • Bruce couldn’t remember the scene as well as Cindy–he couldn’t recall who’s apartment they were at and Cindy was like “Bruce. Really” and he also said he couldn’t really remember how the scene really went. Cindy turned to him and said “Let me help you, grandpa” and immediately started quoting BOTH of their lines to him and describing how her apartment transformed. Bruce looked astonished 
  • Finally, a couple people asked about Tron 3. Unfortunately there’s no news as far as any of them know. They did mention Shanghai and how popular the ride is. They discussed the reasons why the film’s been put on hold (Bruce says it’s been shelved but, to his knowledge, not cancelled totally) and it basically boiled down to a lot of factors that none of them had any control over. Bruce said he was told it came down to Disney not having room in their current schedule to do the film because they want to focus on live action versions of the old cartoon movies. Also, this wasn’t at the panel, but at his table later on he mentioned that the third film was going to focus at least in part on Quorra being out in the real world, so it was nice to have that confirmed.
  • Cindy mentioned the failure of Tomorrowland might have contributed too, and she also said if the higher-ups were “where we are”, as in at cons and gatherings talking to fans and seeing the passion and love, then the film would get green-lit asap, but unfortunately that’s now how things are. She DID go on to say that her best advice to the fandom was to keep posting and talking about the franchise and letting Disney know there’s still support for it because the company has people who monitor mentions of franchises on the internet to gauge popularity. 
  • So basically, keep on keepin’ on, programs. 

Imagine meeting Jared at a wedding

I sit around, watching as everyone gets closer to the center stage. I should be excited, my sister’s best friend is getting married and I was able to position myself as a bridesmaid, but everything feels dull after having dealt with a fail marriage yourself. I look at my hand, inspecting the place where my ring used to be, missing the weight of it.

My eyes move to observe the place, the fairy lights hanging everywhere, the tables ready to be occupied by the guests. The music starts, and I return my gaze to my hand, feeling sorry for the bitter person I became after being dumped by my husband.

“So, you don’t like dancing either?”

I turn my head to my side, observing the man sitting next to me. Brandon’s best man looks at me with a casual smile on his face.

“I don’t like weddings” I say, even though it is not entirely true.

“Oh…” Is the only thing he says before turning his gaze to the people cheering at the newlyweds, “I can understand it; I mean, this can be really overwhelming”

“There’s too many people”

“Too many happy people” He laughs, I allow myself to smile at his comment, “I’m Jared”

“I’m…”

“I know” He smiles, “I asked Brandon, he said you wouldn’t want to talk to me”

“I’m not in the mood for weddings” I shrug, “So, best man?”

Jared looks at his tuxedo before returning his eyes to mine. The smile does not leave his lips, even when the only thing he can find in mine is a serious expression.

“Yeah, been best friends with Brandon for years, he didn’t even have to ask me, I already knew. The same happened to you?”

“Not really” I mutter, noticing all the people starting to move from the waltz.

“Come on, we are in the same table”

Jared gets up from his seat, showing me where our table is located. I follow him, asking myself a bit late why he asked Brandon about me. We arrive to a table occupied by all the bridesmaids and the other groomsmen. I check my name in one of the seats, Jared doing the same on the other side of the table. When he finds his name, noticing he’s located on the other side of the table, takes a look at the empty seat by my side. Empty, but not for long. A man sits by my side, and I receive a kind smile from his behalf.

“Hey, Shannon!”

I lift my head, looking at Jared talking to the man by my side. They both share a look, and without saying a word, they swap seats.

I look at Jared, sitting by my side now, “What are you doing?” I ask him, confused.

“I don’t know” He shrugs, with a smile.

My sister, who just notices what is going on, gives me an interested look. I just roll my eyes at my little sister.

We don’t talk for the first part of the course. We spend the appetizer in silence, but once the soup arrives, he starts sharing comments with the rest of the people in our table. I can see him smile and laugh with the rest, but I’m too deep in my bubble to participate.

When I hear my name, we are already receiving our entrées. Everyone is looking at me, especially Jared by my side.

“What?” I ask them, startled by their gazes.

“We are talking about London” My sister informs me, a reassuring smile on her lips, “The guys want to know about it”

“How long did you live there?” The man, Shannon I think, asks me.

“Oh, five years” I answer, not really wanting to get into too much detail.

“Must have been fun” Another one says, why is there so many people I don’t know in this goddamn table?

“I guess, I didn’t go out that much” I say, after finishing my glass of wine, “Once you get used to it, is just another city”

Some of the other bridesmaids look at me like I’m crazy, just by the fact of saying that London is ‘just another city’. I shrug it off and continue with my meal now that I’m not in the spotlight.

“You are doing great” My sister whispers in my ear.

The meal is over, and everybody is walking to the dancefloor. Anne stops by my side for a few seconds to congratulate me for something that shouldn’t be celebrated. But I guess that if you are in your 20’s, with the whole world at your feet, your big sis’ problems seem too far from your own world.

“You want to dance?” She asks me, holding my wrist, “We could put everyone to shame on that dancefloor”

“The bar is waiting for me” I mutter, with a shy smile, “Go have fun, I’ll try to do the same”

She looks at me reluctantly, but leaves me alone.

Alone, at last.

I walk toward the bar, giving the barman a pleasing smile.

“What’ll do?” He asks.

“Let’s start soft”

He nods and starts preparing me a Cosmo. I wait for my drink, looking around, seeing the people enjoying the celebration. I feel like such a killjoy, but being here brings memories from my own wedding, happy memories that clove to my heart like nails in a chalkboard.

“There you are”

I turn around, meeting my eyes with Jared’s.

“I’ve been looking for you” He says, sitting by my side, again, “Too many people, too many unnecessary encounters”

“Some ex girlfriend that you are trying to avoid?” I ask, noticing how a smile escapes my lips.

“Yeah, and some that didn’t got to get the title and want to now” He laughs, “What are you drinking? I want one”

The barman hands me my drink and starts preparing one for Jared.

“Are you sure you want to stay with me? I’m pretty sure you would have much more fun with those pleading girls”

“You are in a party pooper mood tonight?” He asks, receiving his drink.

“Maybe” I mutter, “Well, definitely, why?”

“Because I need someone like you tonight”

I notice how both of my eyebrows raise at this comment, and I find myself speechless. How are you supposed to respond to something like that? Especially when the person saying it is actually really handsome and you are in the middle of a divorce. Jared plays with his hair for a second, waiting for me to say something, but I can only focus and how invested he looks. He really wants to spend his time with me, and I’m in no position to say no.

“When I asked you about the whole bridesmaid thing earlier, you were really vagued with your answer”

“There’s not much to say” I shrug, but he seems even more interested in the topic.

“Baelyn just asked you?”

“Yeah, I mean, it wasn’t even sure that I was going to be here, I arrived last night”

“Right, you were in London” He mutters, handing his empty glass to the barman, “You want another?”

“Sure”

I must be the most boring person in the whole party right now, but he keeps looking at me with interest.

“That dress looks really pretty on you”

“Oh, thanks” I stutter, looking at the tight dress.

We stay quiet for a couple of minutes, but I can notice how his eyes watch me from time to time. I feel uncomfortable at first, but I start to get used to his presence once the empty glasses start accumulating by our side

His comment about how pretty I look shocks me. I know I’m not unpleasant to the eye, but my confidence is so low lately, that I find it hard to believe any good comments about my appearance. My friends and family are always stating how pretty, or happy I am, even though I look like a hurricane throwed up on me. I don’t believe them, but I believe Jared, who keeps playing with his long hair, offering me honest smiles.

“Let’s play something” He says, “We’ll take turns to say an statement, and if we feel identified, we’ll take a shot”

“You want to get me drunk?” I ask, laughing for the first time in the evening.

“Well, you look like you could use a bit of alcohol, and I can’t say no to a few shots”

“So, ‘Never have I ever’, but with tequila shots?”

“Yeah, fun, isn’t it?”

We lay a row of tequila shots in front of us. I know this is probably a bad idea, but my brain’s in “party mood” and wants some alcohol. Jared volunteers to start with the game, and we turn on our seats to face each other.

“Never have I ever flirted my way out of a speeding ticket” I watch him take a shot, impressed by his confession.

“Oh, my God” I mutter, he laughs, leaving the shot glass aside, “It worked?”

“Nah” He laughs again, “She was a really professional officer, but she kinda wanted to spare me, I could sense it”

Ok, this as starting to get fun.

“Your turn” He announces.

I get comfortable in my sit, thinking about something to say. I used to play this game when I was younger; my friends always picked the dirtiest things to say, but I just couldn’t remember any. I decided to start slow, leaving it for the alcohol to make my memories come back.

“Never have I ever gone commando”

We both take a shot, laughing while putting the glasses aside. He definitely looks like the type of person who would go commando everywhere. Even now.

“That was an easy one” He grins, lifting his head in confidence, “Never have I ever called someone else’s name while hooking up”

I stare as he takes a shot, and then another. When he notices my confused expression, he clarifies.

“It’s happened more than once”

“Come on, how can you do that?” He shrugs, handing me a shot, “I haven’t done it”

“I can see, but at this rate, you’ll have to take me to the hospital before you get a tiny bit drunk. Drink”

I drink, thinking about a new statement.

“Never have I ever…” I start, but stop still thinking about it, “Never have I ever send a dirty text to the wrong person”

This time, I’m the only one who drinks. Jared laughs at me, and I end up laughing with him.

“Tell me about it” He asks.

“It was a boring day at work and I needed some entertainment. Luckily, I sent it to my sister and not my parents… or my boss”

“It was too dirty?”

“Not much, just starting”

“You have to be careful with those things” He suggests, making the barman refill our glasses, “I would literally die if I end up sending one to my mother”

“My sister almost died, it’s not only your parents that you have to be careful”

We continue with the game for what it feels like hours. I learn that Jared has played strip poker and lose just for the pleasure of showing off; lied about his age; sing on the street to gain a few coins (while drunk), among other things. He has learned that I have never kissed someone on the first date; that I dance and sing in the shower; also, about one time that I lied about being someone’s relative just to get in a party, and so, so on.

The more we drink, the dirtier the statements. Jared starts asking about sexual experiences, and I do it too. We are laughing in our own bubble, while everybody else is enjoying the party at their own pace.

“Never have I ever been with someone who was in a relationship”

Jared doesn’t drink, and I stare at him, processing the words.

“Can you excuse me for a second?”

I stand from my seat, starting walk toward the bathroom. The statement keeps spinning around in my head, making me feel dizzy. By the time I reach the bathroom, i run to one of the stalls. I feel the tears coming out, running over my cheeks, ruining my make up. But I can’t stop.

‘Been with someone who was in a relationship’

I have never done it, and after experiencing being the affected part of that statement, I was more than sure that I would never, ever, do it.

The minutes pass, and I find myself able to get out of the stall. My face does not look that damage by the tears, and I take my time to fix my make up in front of the mirror.

When I come out of the bathroom, someone holds my wrist to stop me. I turn around to see Jared pulling me toward him.

“Are you okay?” He asks, biting his bottom lip.

He looks really worried, and by the time I shake my head no, he lets go of my wrist.

“I’m really sorry, I shouldn’t have said that” He apologizes, burying his face on his hands, ‘You want to talk about it?”

“Not really” I whisper, “But I would really want to dance now”

Jared takes his hands from his face, noticing a shy smile forming on my lips.

“I can help you with that”

His hand holds mine, starting to pull me towards the dancefloor. The music is soft, and the people start holding their partners really close. Jared puts both hands on my waist, and I raise mine to cross them on his nape. We move slowly, following the rhythm of the music with our drunken bodies.

“I have never been in a long relationship” He mutters.

“Lucky you” I laugh, resting my head on his shoulder, “I have never been in a short one”

“Lucky you” He mimics my words, “I have never been in love”

“I have” Is the only thing I say, feeling the tight nod on my chest, announcing future tears if I don’t change the subject quickly, “I have never been at the beach at dawn”

“It is so… beautiful” He whispers in my ear, “I can take you there, you should watch it, it is one of the most amazing things ever”

“I would love that” I say, feeling quick shivers down my spine, “Your turn”

“I have never… I have never feel this comfortable with someone”

I stop moving as I hear his words. Jared stops too, pulling away to look at my face. A small grin appears on his face, and I’m not sure if he’s being serious, or the alcohol is starting to speak for him.

“I have never feel attracted to someone this quickly” He continues, “I have never wanted to kiss someone as much as I want to kiss you”

I wet my lips, feeling his words all over my body, sending new shivers over my spine. I fold my arms over my chest, trying not to show how his words are affecting me.

“I have never… ever been with someone as beautiful as you, someone who doesn’t even know how amazing she is” He gets closer to me again, putting his hands on my arms, “And I have never wanted to tell someone as much as I want to tell you, how unbelievably amazing she is”

A part of me wants him to kiss me, another one wants to run away from this man who has known me for just a couple of hours and is already putting the world at my feet. I decide to stay, feeling his hands caress my arms, seeing how his lips reach for my ear.

“I really want to show you that dawn” He whispers, “It would be alright if I take you?”

I nod, receiving his hug as a gift.

“And I really want to see it”

His arms hold me against him, and I can’t believe how desperate he is, like he wants me even closer, but he isn’t able to accomplish it. I do the same, crossing my arms on his nape once again, pulling him toward me.

“I have never wanted someone as much as I want you right now”.

Jaime & Brienne | I'll do better |
.For much time i haven't inspiration to do some videos (so much unfinished videos) so here i am with a video with(for me) the best couple on Game Of Thrones ...

Well shit. If I didn’t ship them before (which I totally, shamelessly did) I would now! 

This video is perfection. It powerfully highlights the reasons I ship Brienne and Jaime (both platonically and romantically). You see, to me it doesn’t matter whether they bang each other–don’t get me wrong, I REALLY want the banging to happen–because they are already bound to each other. 

Jaime had never truly trusted or relied on someone until he met Brienne. His relationship with Cersei is so centered on “family” (aka Lannister values) and lust that he mistakes it for true, honest love. If he truly trusted Cersei, he would have gone to her for comfort after his attack on the Mad King, he would have confessed to her his horror and disgust with both the king and himself but he didn’t. He knew (even if it was on a subconscious level) that his emotional upheaval didn’t fit into Cersei’s golden twin view of him, and as such he put it away and continued to play into her ideal of what he should be and what their relationship should be. 

Brienne changed all of that. With the loss of his hand and her blunt appraisal of him and his actions, Jaime began to change into a character I could actually stand, because of Brienne. For the first time, he was faced with someone who was not only brutally honest about his flaws but brought out the best parts of him and provided him with a safe space to talk about the demons that haunt his psyche. That’s a huge development. 

Cersei sees Jaime as a means to an end, a way to satisfy her sexual passion as well as her need to control and govern. Their interactions are limited to sex and plots for revenge. The contrast between that and his relationship with Brienne is  like light and day. 

Now, Brienne isn’t perfect. In fact, before her journey with Jaime I found her a bit high and mighty and just kind of bull-headed. That doesn’t drastically change where Jaime is concerned, but the biggest shift I saw was that she actually came to terms with the fact that not all “bad” men are truly bad. She saw Jaime as he was, and slowly began to understand that underneath the family name and over-the-top bravado was a human being who was just as eager to find their place as she was. They both crave connection, they both crave the knowledge that they’re being useful and that they have a purpose. 

Brienne and Jaime have a love that can’t be denied, a love that Cersei sees at Joffery’s wedding and calls Brienne out on. The startling part is that Brienne doesn’t deny it. She simply excuses herself, but not before looking back at Jaime–who is not-so-subtlely watching Brienne and Cersei talk because protecting Brienne has become second-nature. They protect each other and it’s beautiful because Jaime has never had someone so fiercely protect him before. 

Just before Brienne leaves King’s Landing to search for Arya Stark, they have a very interesting conversation and I just have to mention it. When Brienne tells him the name of the sword he gave to her, Oathkeeper, Jaime’s entire face softens and hardens at the same time because she isn’t talking about the sword and he knows it. She’s looking him in the eye and telling him that she was wrong about him. She’s not just naming her sword, she’s letting him know that he, Jaime, is an Oath Keeper, someone worthy of trust, a good man despite his assumption that he’s not a allowed to be because of his background and his past actions. This moment is so powerful because they both just look at each other and you can tell that both of them have so much to say, and yet don’t have the courage to say it because it would bring to light just how much they care. Both of them have spent their entire lives struggling to contain their emotions, and so Jaime simply says, “Goodbye, Brienne.” 

Brienne doesn’t say it back. She simply nods, too overcome to speak, and moves past him to her horse. To say goodbye implies that she won’t see him again, and so she says nothing. 

So in summary? I ship the fuck out of Brienne and Jaime. This post became much more of a thing than I wanted it to be, but I needed to get it off my chest. This video is everything I’ve said above and more, and like the title says, Brienne and Jaime both inspire each other to do better, they challenge and push, which is the sign of a truly healthy relationship. 

To all of you who trudged through my fangirling and reached the end, YAY FOR YOU! I’m flattered you got this far, and if you want more feel free to send a message! I’m always down to dissect GOT or other fandom relationships <3

anonymous asked:

Hi. I'm starting to approach my own long fic. And every fic I started in the past I ran out of steam. I want to finish some of them but cringe at my old writing style. How have you kept going with freight for three years?

Hi! First off, I want to say awesome! Long stories are some of the hardest to write, in my opinion, and I’m really proud of you for taking the plunge. Woo!

As for how I’ve kept going with Freight for the last three years, well–that’s kind of a tricky question to answer. I’ve grown so much as both a writer and a person since the original idea came popped into my head, and by extension my writing process has changed, too. There’s no quick fix or easy method to follow, I think, and tackling on a big project like Freight has definitely had it’s ups and downs. Everyone is different, so what I’ve found works for me might not work for you. But! That being said,  I’ll try to outline some of the things I do/have done!

  1. I’ve started dozens of big writing projects, only to drop them halfway through. My old FF.net account is proof of that–about half of the unfinished stories I haven’t deleted over the years are still sitting dormant in various fandom archives. It’s a natural thing, I think–something every writer goes through. We jump into a story and hit the ground running, and then lose steam before we can get very far at all. When I first got the idea for Freight, I decided that I was really going to stick with the story, something I hadn’t been able to do with more than a few projects before. So, naturally, I did the exact opposite of what I thought I was supposed to do: I didn’t write.
  2. Yep, you read that right. Freight actually “started” in February-ish of 2013, but I didn’t put the first chapter down on paper (or the computer, really) until August. So what did I do in the meantime? I planned. I outlined the whole thing, scrapped that draft, and then outlined it all again. I think there are three separate versions floating around my apartment right now, actually. I started with a basic idea (zombie apocalypse), then built the frame for my characters (What are their family relationships? What are their skill sets? Which aspects of their personalities am I going to highlight?), and then crafted my setting. A lot of that initial work is handwritten, because I have an easier time visualizing things with charts and lists. Only after I’d finished the worldbuilding did I sit down and hammer out the plot, which I organized into arcs and built around a timeline.
  3. The arc frame and timeline are, for me, the most important parts of this whole process. They’re your skeleton, especially the arcs. I think one of the most daunting things about a big writing project is the sheer size of it. You can plan everything out, but as soon as you sit down to write the first few chapters you can get overwhelmed. With arcs, you have a very clear idea of what you need to do, and a very clear “end” in sight. You don’t have to think of your story as one big hulking mess, and instead can look at it in pieces. The timeline plays into that, too. You only have so many fictional days to fill with content, so you’re limiting the amount of pressure you put on yourself.
  4. Sitting down to write the first chapter was, I think, the hardest thing for me. You do all this planning and get everything finalized, and now you have to go through it from the beginning and actually, you know, make real words happen. I wrote three or four drafts of the first chapter and wasn’t happy with any of it, so I took a step back and reevaluated my process again. The way I decided to approach each chapter after that little setback was similar to how I approached the story as a whole: outline, break each chapter up into scenes or “mini-arcs”, and focus my attention on each so I wouldn’t try to move too fast or do too much. Focusing on smaller pieces of a whole also helps me keep the pacing of the entire story in check, because I’m forced to finish a complete sequence of events before moving on to another, and so on. You can’t jump around or skip large chunks of events, because you’re locked into that one scene.
  5. Research! Half the fun of building a world or writing dialogue or creating characters is getting into it all. If you’re invested in learning, you’ll be invested in writing. I once spent a week learning basic French grammar just to do four lines of dialogue for a character, and holy crap that was fun! Knowledge is empowering, and it can give you the push you need to move forward though uncertainty. (And you’ll never be without a conversation starter if your head is filled with random facts about post-harvest vegetable storage on organic farms.)
  6. Another thing that really helps me is music. This might sound kind of corny, but I love AMVs and movie trailers, so what I’ll do is find a few songs and listen to them while I’m driving or chilling. I’ll picture scenes based on how the music flows, or the lyrics, or the feel of the song itself. Hard dubstep like, say, “Into the Labrynth” by Kraddy? That’s going to be a battle scene. Each pounding bass drop is a swinging weapon, each lull in the melody is a pause in the action for dialogue, the big drop in the middle (around 3:00 I think) signals the rise of a new threat on top of the chaos. Soft acoustic like, maybe, “All I Want” by Stonefox? That’s a quiet morning, sun streaming through large windows; coffee steam and subtle glances and self-doubt. Watching someone else from a distance; exhaustion; resignation in the face of longing. You feel the change in the music, so you feel the movement of each scene. I spend almost as much time listening to music and planning things as I do writing stuff down, I think.
  7. I write every day. This might just be something I do because I want to write professionally–like, writing is pretty much my whole life right now. But I start with a quick writing exercise to warm up my creative juices and then set to work on whatever project I’m going to do for the day. Even if I don’t make it to the “real” writing because I get distracted or something happens, I’ve at least done something to stay in practice, and to stay in my mental “writing place” if that makes any sense. I’ve trained myself to expect that part of my daily routine, so actually sitting down to type the story out isn’t such a burden anymore. Writing exercises are also good if you’re not sure how to write a scene, a series of actions, a feeling, dialogue, or describe a character/setting. Isolate that thing, whatever it may be, and practice it. A few of my shorter stories are actually just writing exercises that I liked enough to put up on Ao3.
  8. Don’t beat yourself up if you get stuck. Writer’s block happens to everyone. What’s important is that you don’t dwell on it, and don’t let it suck you in. I deal with writer’s block by powering through and writing, writing, writing until stuff starts flowing the way I want it to, but don’t be afraid to take a break. Do something else for a week, write a one-shot or two (emphasis on one-shot; don’t start another big project if you’re stumped with something you’re seriously determined to finish–that will shift your focus, and that’s the opposite of what you want), or write a different part of the same story. Getting burned out sucks, but it happens. What’s important is that you don’t dwell on it.
  9. Settle into a “writing routine”. This will help you mentally. I already mentioned that I do warmups every time I write, but I also have a few other things that help me get in the zone. I drink two cups of coffee while I’m doing my warmup, and I have a pitcher of water that I’m constantly refilling a glass from while I work. I make the same sandwich every time I’m really pushing through (toast, pepper jack cheese, sliced avocado, lime juice, chili powder) if I need a short break. I sit in the same spot every time I write, I block tumblr on both Firefox and Chrome, etc, etc. This will help you fall into the groove faster, and make the process less painful.
  10. Don’t worry about what people are going to think of your story. I know sometimes getting no comments or only a few kudos on the first chapter can be discouraging, but remember to write for you and not anyone else. It’s easier said than done, definitely, but sometimes stuff like that takes time. Push through the self-doubt if you have to, and look at what you’re doing as means to improve your skills if you’re not getting the attention you want right now. The readers will come. Heck, if you send me your story, I’ll read it! It’s not always immediate, but it will happen.
  11. Have fun, homie. If it’s not fun, don’t do it. Write what you want. Write things that make you laugh, write things that make you cry. Put yourself into your story, and it will shine through. Your triumphs, your failures, your flaws, your achievements, your sense of humor–the whole nine yards. And if you do that, you won’t have to worry about losing motivation, because you’re doing what you love.

I hope this answers your question, or at least helps a little. I tried my best to cover most of the basis and include things I’ve learned over the years, and I might reblog this at some point if I think of anything else. Don’t hesitate to ask if you ever need help with anything.

I send all of my love and encouragement your way, and I’m really proud of you for taking on a big writing project! Good luck!! <3

His daughter will kill him when she finds out what he’s been planning, but he can’t watch her do this to herself any longer. He can’t watch his child grimace and gasp in pain, even though she tries so hard to hide it from him. He can’t watch his little girl grow more distant, crawling deeper within herself with every passing day.

He can’t continue to watch Katie stare at her phone but refuse to use it.

If she isn’t going to call, isn’t going to reach out to someone, he’ll do it for her. She had given him a boost – a shove, really – when he had needed it most, when he had hit rock bottom and couldn’t see a way to climb out of his pain and his misery, and now he’s doing the same for her. She’ll be pissed, she may well rail against him (God knows he did all those years ago), but he has to believe his plan is for the best.

On a quiet, cool morning in early July, Jim Beckett steps out onto the knotted wood porch of his cabin and does what his daughter can’t or won’t do for herself: he calls Richard Castle.

{idea from otpprompts}

Connor does not do emotions. Seriously. Even when he was younger, he never was much of a crier, and he definitely didn’t know how to deal with other people crying. So when he woke up in the middle of the night to Oliver quietly sniffing beside him, tears streaming down his face, he had no idea what to do.
