EXO Reaction to CockWarming

Could you pls do an Exo reaction to cockwarming? - anon

Here it is sorry i took so long, its my first time writhing a reaction hope you enjoy!

Warning this is an 18+ post read at your own risk.

Suho / Kim Junmyeon

He’d be very sweet about this, just wanting to feel closer to you after a long time apart because of touring. He’d be a bit shy to ask because he doesn’t want you to think he wants sex. He’d stumble over his words trying to explain that just being inside you without the intention of Cumming or sexual stimulation is enough for him anyway.

“Jagi…I have something strange to ask…” He’d say scratching his head while looking at the floor.

“What is it?” You ask.

“W-well I have this problem but I mean it’s n-not that kind of problem I just want to be inside you that’s all and I-I just be close to you- you don’t have too its just I think it would feel good and I just want to feel close and~” Words rush from his lips before you place a finger on them to hush him.

“It’s okay, I get it I don’t mind at all lets get comfy okay? Then you can rest inside me”

Park Chanyeol

He’d probably see cockwarming mentioned before searched it and decided he wanted to try it but didn’t know how to. He’d be coming up with ways he could ask you or just have it happen. And then after an exhausting day and mind-blowing sex he just comes out with it.

“There’s this thing called cockwarming and it involves me staying inside you for a while can we do it?” His words coming out between a mixture of deep breathing and your humming recurrences.

“Okay” You say breathily nodding along

“Okay” Chanyeol repeats to himself happy to stay like this with you after weeks of debating with himself.

Kai / Kim Jongin

You’d only been apart for a few days and he’s ready and raring to fuck you as usual. His sex drive second to none, when it comes to you anyway. This time he doesn’t want to leave you opting to hug you tight and stay inside you forever.

“Jongin?” You ask when he holds you so tight you can’t breathe.

“Humm~?”

“Can I move yet?”

“No, we’re going to stay like this forever” He proclaimed with no intention of letting you go or removing himself from your intimate area.

Oh Sehun

Oh Sehun would be such a needy little boy when you two finish having sex each time he’d want to kiss, cuddle, shower you with love but this time he wants to try something different. Feeling so content with just being inside you he’d just simply request to stay there.

After a long session Sehun laid there cuddled into your side while still inside you, you go to move but he stops you mumbling.

“I wanna stay like this, inside you.”

You sigh laying your head against the pillow content with letting him have his way.

“Okay baby” These the last words spoken as you both fall asleep.

D.O / Kyung-Soo

Unfortunately, I don’t really see Kyung-Soo doing such a thing. Sorry but I just can’t see/ imagine it.

(Sorry~ /.\ ) 

Lay / Zhang Yixing

For you and Lay it would be a constant thing. He’d come back from training all worked up but too tired to do anything about it dropping on the bed next to you.

“Baby~” Lay whines reaching out towards you.

You look at him “what~” You repeat in the same tone as his.

“Help me out~” He’d whine again this time adding puppy eyes.

You’d help him with his erection, not minding at all that he’d fall asleep after inside you, opting to leave him be and do the same.

Chen / Kim Jong-Dae

I don’t much see Chen thinking or initiating it himself but he would for sure not complain if you asked him.

“Jong-Dae~?” you say as he starts to pull out. “Can you just say in me for a little while longer?”

He looks at you questioningly riseing an eyebrow “Really?”

“Yes~”

He nods getting into a more comfortable position for the both of you and snuggling together.

Byun Baek-Hyun

It started off as a joke and before long it became a regular thing with you two. You two were play fighting and before long it got sexual.

You lay there giggling as Baek-Hyun kissed the ticklish spot on your neck.

“Come on get off me we’ve finished now and I’ve got work to do” You say still giggling.

“No, I wanna stay here, like this, with you all day” Baek- Hyun said holding you closer.

“Fine but are you going to get out of me?”

“Like I said stay here LIKE THIS all day” Baek replied looking at you through his eyelashes.

You huff knowing this was going to be a long battle if you continued and decided you could be in worse places today.

Xiumin / Kim Minseok

Xiumin would do this without a second though as to whether it was normal, kinky or weird, he’d just love to be inside you so it would happen whenever it happened.

“I love you” Xiumin said positioning himself to fall asleep while inside you.

“I love you too” You reply content with everything around you.

Mistakes are part of what makes us human. We learn from them. So if you have to look at them, try to look at them with a "look how much I've grown since then" attitude. Don't put yourself down.

Thank-you lovely! and I do think that way with life and mistakes outside of this website. :) Just now that I’ve grown in popularity I’m anticipating the day someone uses my past mistakes, older posts, and past friends/online  acquaintances against me. I’ve apologized for and deleted most of my mistakes, and I always try my best to approach situations with a calm attitude and open mind. That doesn’t mean there isn’t still record of everything I have done on here. If I don’t have access to things, people can twist and use my words against me.

I’ve seen too many people bullied off this website to the point of deactivating, deletion, or even suicidal attempts. Tumblr cultivates this idea of a general “woke” or “accepting” mentality yet some only use it to their own advantage..

Old conversations screenshoted and taken out of context, toxic ideals widespread, promoting love while outwardly hating large groups of people.

Sharing something bad a user did, but conveniently leaving out they didn’t realize it or their apology.

After 4+ years on this website with multiple accounts, I’ve seen it all. I love and appreciate the followers I have, you are all wonderful. I guess I’m saying all it takes is one person to try and destroy my reputation and sprinkle some lies in with the true.  So I’d rather own up to my past myself, before someone else has the chance to harm me.  Perhaps it’s all paranoia, but the mistreatment of friends/mutuals/and overall users I’ve seen breaks my heart. That’s why I run my page like I do. I want people to have a place that is different from the hatred this website, and this world can bring.

idk how to word this or whether im right or wrong. but like im starting to question the idea that lesbians saying one thing about their experience has to imply something else about bi women’s? (im also not saying here that bi women view everything that lesbians say as an accusation)

like i really don’t know how to explain what im thinking or whether it makes sense. its kind of just a vague idea floating around in my head. but like maybe a lesbian saying the world wants her to be available to men. maybe that doesn’t have to imply that bi women are available to men. bc she’s speaking about sociological trends not expressing her personal views?

idk, this line of thought that im mustering up is starting to confuse even me lmao. but like maybe if she says that the world wants he to be available to men it doesn’t mean that she thinks other women are available to men she’s talking about the social structures that make everyone view every single woman as available to men??

like sometimes people say things are straight up laterally aggressive but maybe those types of analyses aren’t automatically that way?

So I have been trying not to post anything about what was said today, but as much as I try to keep myself busy I’m still hurt. I don’t think he even understands what he said meant to us. He doesn’t understand the hurt and place of pain he just threw us back into.

I feel like a burden when I ask people to use my pronouns.

I feel like a burden when I ask people to use my preferred name.

I feel like a burden when I am having a bad day and just need someone to hold me.

I feel like a burden when we are out shopping and I want to go through the men’s section to see if there is a nice tie.

There are so many moments in my life that I feel like I bring my friends and family down. My friends will tell me I am not a burden, but you brought me back to this place. This place that I feel so out of place and like I should just hide myself. There is so much in my day to day life that reminds me, I don’t need him to.

More on V and some other ramblings

Sometimes when I see posts talking about hating V because of Saeran and all the decisions he made, makes me wonder if we played the same game… which may be true because Cheritz does make little changes to the text from time to time.

Anyway it made me want to analyze a little more about V in general and a little more continuation from this post. Spoilers ahead, be warned!

Hello there! What kind of advice do you have for a beginning artist? I especially want to try landscapes and backgrounds but I have no idea where to start and it can be intimidating since I don't really know what to do, or what kind of steps to follow either. I really admire your art though, both the simple and complex pieces - they're really wonderful <3

Hi Anon!! Sorry to keep you waiting! (And thank you! <3 I’m so glad you like my art!)

Somebody else had a question about landscapes, and I just posted a response to it right over here. I hope you’ll find it helpful! I think #1 on that list is a simple place to begin, and it applies not just to landscape painting but to drawing all sorts of subject matter. Take notice of the things you find interesting! If you’re afraid of forgetting, you can keep a notebook. I take a lot of pictures and type things into the Notes app on my phone sometimes. Whatever’s easiest for you.

If you’re a beginning artist, I’d say to start by drawing what interests you most! Maybe that’s landscapes, maybe it’s characters, maybe it’s fan art! All good things. Once you know what you enjoy most, you’ll be able to focus study on that particular area first. If you’re interested in landscapes and backgrounds, I think those points I touched on in the other post would be a great place to start learning more. If you find you really like drawing characters, you could do gesture drawings (like this) and learn about different muscles, a little at a time. Set small goals if that helps! Like doing 1 15-minute landscape study a day, if you’re trying to improve in that area. You’ll be able to apply that knowledge to whatever else you’re drawing for fun. Keep at it! And don’t be discouraged if it doesn’t “click” right away. Everyone learns at their own pace, and that’s okay!

There’s no right or wrong way to learn. Someone else might have a different approach, but these are just my thoughts on the matter. I hope this helps a little! Happy art-ing and have a nice day, Anon!

Why Commenting On FanFiction Is Important

Alright kids, Boo here with a hopefully non-arrogant PSA.

I’m a writer of FanFiction because I like it and it’s my preferred genre (also a great way to receive feedback on writing that I can use on originals, bref). But like with most artistic work posted online, I have very little feedback.

When I was in a slightly writing rut, I cranked one shots left and right, nothing out of the ordinary. But instead of people commenting with their thoughts and good feedback, they just gave me requests.

I don’t think I could ever put into words what that felt like, but I’ll try (the irony of being a writer). It suddenly felt tiring, being a writer, and very quickly I stopped writing altogether. I only ever showed my friend what I wrote and left it at that. I haven’t published anything for a while after. It felt like people were treating me like a mule wanting me to do work for them, and I just wasn’t up for that. I lost my will to write, and then I began to think, “If I post something else other than what was requested, will people even read it?”

Then you get the infamous comments, “You haven’t forgotten about my request right??? Here’s another.”

That just adds anxiety and guilt. I’m purposely ignoring the comments to save my own uncreative ass, at least that’s what it feels like.

After weeks of convincing myself that my stories are worth sharing no matter how many people read them, I started writing and publishing again while working on some longer pieces. Slowly it got better.

Now this week, I remembered I joined another fanfiction platform, and realized I had never published anything on it. I had an idea, and so I started writing. It didn’t come out as I imagined it would, but I was so proud? Like, I started feeling happy about what I created again. Like genuine happiness that I haven’t felt in months since my last published work.

A few hours later, I get this comment:

I cranked out three 3k stories after reading this.

In four days.

It never happened before, and I don’t know how many times it will happen again. It was one comment, but it gave me so much fighting spirit that I think I’m on my way to regaining my initial writer mindset.

Fanfiction writers depend on feedback as a validation that their stories matter to people. If you’re wondering why your favourite author hasn’t updated/posted in a while, ask yourself, “Did I do everything that would convince them to continue writing this?”

I have seen a number of harry potter posts that go something like, “If there was magic and wizards in (country) they’d _____.”  Usually there are also long discussions that go along with these about how each country deals with the statute of secrecy.

And all I can think is, Canada wouldn’t even bother trying to enforce the statute of secrecy. Because what is the point? How would you even know if it was a magic thing or just a Canada thing?

Is that guy just taking a regular old moose through a drive thru to get coffee or is it animagus?

Was that prime minister crazy or did he actually talk to ghosts?

How do you steal 20 000 litres of maple syrup? Trucks or portkeys?

The minister of immigration formally gave Santa Claus citizenship and a passport.

House hippos.

All magic would do to Canada is make the internet about 90% more sure that Canada isn’t a real place.

Tower of Dawn

     So I think it’s time this fandom had a sit-down and talked some things out. Today’s topic: ableism. Before all of y’all start jumping on me and dismissing me and trying to say I have no right to talk about this, let me tell you a bit about myself.

     I was born with spina bifida. For those of you that don’t know that is, it’s when a baby’s spinal chord and nerves don’t develop properly. I had my first surgery to help this condition when I was eight days old. The excess amount of scar tissue in my lower back had begun to wrap around my spinal chord, which for obvious reasons is dangerous. I had the same surgery when I was four years old, and that’s when my life changed forever. I’d been able to walk before using a leg brace, but due to a mistake by the surgeon, my left leg was left paralyzed. I was a normal (and I hate using the word normal here, normal is an absolutely useless construct of society, but for lack of a better word at the moment, bear with me) kid, mobile and able to move around as I pleased, and then I couldn’t. I’ve been using a wheelchair since then. I’m not telling you guys this because I want pity. I don’t. I’ve accepted it as part of my life, and I love myself just the way I am. This little explanation is here so you guys can understand exactly where I’m coming from when you read the rest of this post. So with all this in mind, here goes my not-so-little rant.

     DISCLAIMER: I will be calling people out in this post and tagging them because I am done. 1000%, completely fucking done with this fandom. And if this causes a shitstorm, fuck it, because this needs to be said and this fandom needs to learn to stop being hypocritical pieces of crap.

     I love these books. I love Sarah’s writing in general,  and I would read literally anything she wrote. These books, Aelin’s story, Feyre’s story, are so important to me. I don’t have words to describe how much they mean to me. I love talking about them and healthy and constructive conversations about them. And some of the jokes that have been made  by the fandom are some of favorites. I’ve made some of them myself. I’ll joke alongside all of you about wingspans and gold nightgowns for as long as you want.

     I want to make something perfectly clear: this rant is in no way a reflection of my thoughts about her books. This post is exclusively about the fandom’s disgusting behavior.

     So let’s start with this post that I saw earlier.



     Disability is not kinky.

     For those of you that can’t understand that, let me repeat it.

     Disability is not kinky.

     DISABILITY. IS. NOT. KINKY.

     This whole post is horrifyingly ableist. And before you guys start claiming that “I have disabled relatives, I can’t be ableist!” (@rowan-stole-my-heart, I’m looking at you. Remember that conversation last year? Nice to know you’re still disgusting), that’s like saying “I have African-American friends, therefore I can’t be racist!”, which is such an inherently flawed line of arguing that it would require a whole other post to address, so I’ll just say don’t try it. I can’t even begin to fathom the mental process all of these people went through to think that this was even remotely acceptable in any way, shape, or form, so let me break this down and explain to you why this isn’t.

     This, my horrifyingly inconsiderate friends, is a form of fetishism. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, fetishism is the pathological displacement of erotic interest and satisfaction to a fetish. Now that you know what that is, let’s move on.

     This whole fandom has been complaining about a lack of diversity in Sarah’s books since I joined the fandom. Diversity doesn’t just mean POC, which is exactly what this fandom conveniently forgets. Diversity includes POC, people with mental illness, people with physical disability, LGBT+ people, and so much more. And when Sarah finally adds someone who embodies a slice of that diversity, you all have the gall to reduce his situation to sex jokes. All I can say is how dare you. How dare you reduce someone’s life and reality to a kink, to something to be made fun of, to something that spices up your dash and makes it NSFW just because you wanted to make fun of a book cover you probably weren’t satisfied with. In doing so you are insulting the thousands upon thousands of people that are in the same situation. You’re reducing them – reducing me – to a fantasy that you can use and then dismiss the next moment, without regard for anyone’s feelings. Do you have any idea how difficult of a topic sex is for people with disabilities? We are laughed at for wanting sex. Our anxiety when it comes to that is ten times that of any able-bodied person, simply because we don’t fit into the box that society wants to shove everyone into. And you’re making it that much worse because you have the audacity to think the fact that someone can’t move their legs is funny.

     It hurts. Reading that post hurt like hell. Because in your eyes – in society’s eyes – people like me aren’t human. We’re just something to ride, right? Yeah, I didn’t miss that little gem of a comment, @readinglikewildfire.

     And because I know this is coming, no, Chaol isn’t just a character.

     But you know what, I get it. It’s just sex, right? A small joke made, no harm done.

     Wrong.

     You’re perpetuating yet another harmful concept cooked up by a disgustingly ableist society. Sorry, but your privilege and utter ignorance are showing. I will concede a bit and agree that we can treat fiction for what it is – something that isn’t real – up to a certain point. But you guys just crossed a line. For those of you saying that you feel guilty for laughing, you absolutely fucking should, because this shit isn’t funny.

     The fact is if that post had been making fun of race or mental illness, then the fandom would have ripped these people to shreds and they would have been reported many, many times over. But it’s not, and instead I can count on my fingers the number of people that stood up to say this was wrong, because it’s just another wheelchair joke, right? Who cares? To those that did, I thank you from the bottom of my heart, especially @throne-of-omg-the-feels and @midnight-wonder.​ It’s nice to know there’s still some hope for humanity left. And to @nerdperson524, I agree with you. People do need a laugh, even those that live their lives stuck in chairs. But that post? It’s downright offensive.

     So that’s it. I’m done blowing things out of proportion, as some of you will say. If you think I should have approached you privately and messaged you about this instead of publicly calling you out, then maybe, just maybe, you shouldn’t have PUBLICLY insulted mocked degraded an entire subset of the human population. And maybe that makes me a bad person. It certainly means I’m not being the bigger person. And I could honestly care less. I am tired. So sick and tired of constantly being the bigger person, of just staying quiet when I see things like this because what’s the use? The entire world is filled with this shit and it’s not like I can fight every time I see this kind of injustice. Nothing’s going to change, no matter what I do. But this? This is where I draw the line. Congratulations.

Remember that time that Niall and I think Harry and Liam were interviewed in New Zealand, and the interviewer asked them what they would do if they were suddenly Mayor of Aukland, like clearly expecting immature king for a day type answers, and instead Niall was immediately like, “well, how’s your public transportation? How much are the teachers getting paid?” and so on and so forth just like, completely subverting her expectations and being funny and smart at the same time?  It makes me happy every time i think about it.  Niall is the best. 

So I’ve seen the discussion and conversation about the Kardashian segment on the Late Late show with Harry being asked if it’s true/right that she (Kendall) ‘lays’ all day. A pun playing on the other guests chickens which he named after the Kardashian females.

It’s this type of subtle sexism and disrespect that infuriates me. Would they have asked Kendall about her sex life if she was there - NEVER. Harry (who we are meant to believe was Kendall’s sexual partner) is now 'dating’ Tess doesn’t get asked what frequency he’s getting laid but will shade Kendall and infer she’s a got a high sex drive at best or a slut at worst.

What makes it worse is that you’ve got three men there sitting there making that joke about the sex life of their apparent friend (if not ex).

Would they like their mum, their daughter, their sister described like that - my guess is no. So if that’s the case why do it to ANY OTHER FEMALE. This disrespect (and call it what it is, it’s not just a joke) is insidious and pervasive and makes people think it’s ok to treat women like objects.

Harry I love your music especially some of the new album, but the way your treating females as a commodity to sell a story or get a quick laugh isn’t ok. You talk about being a feminist, guess what that means more then posting about the womens March. Stand up for women and call out this shit not just participate.

To Harry and his team, not to mention James please try harder cause this isn’t good enough.

a concept: Victor usually wakes up first in the mornings. So when Yuuri wakes to find Victor cuddled against him, breathing slowly and steadily, it’s a pleasant surprise. He brushes his fingers through Victor’s hair and Victor instinctively moves closer to him, gravitating towards Yuuri’s touch whether conscious or unconscious.

They have to leave soon, so regretfully Yuuri whispers to him in Japanese, trying to wake him. Victor hums, still asleep, and tangles a leg in between both of Yuuri’s. Yuuri kisses his forehead and his chest aches with unconditional love that could reverse the turn of the Earth, that could part the ocean, that could put out the embers of the sun. Five more minutes won’t hurt anyone.

cvvtx  asked:

Hi! This is really random but I bumped into one of your posts and I've ALWAYS been interested in witchcraft since I was really young. Recently I keep thinking about it and stuff but idk where to begin. I was wondering if you could tell me?:)

Sure, I’ll try my best! I do have a beginner tag where you can find this original post, but I’m going to copy and paste the majority of it for the purpose of this ask.

“I’m going to start off with three things you should consider before deciding to be a witch. These are not necessary, but are suggestions.

One - What is your primary goal or what you want to achieve from becoming a witch? If you are just interested in it for the aesthetic, or because you think it will make you look cool, I would reconsider the reason behind your interest. This isn’t to say that people haven’t come to witchcraft this way and have been successful, but it may take you longer to grow into. Something else to consider is that having this identity can be dangerous depending on your location and situation. Those that dress as witches for the aesthetic are probably not trying to be harmful, but can sometimes cause a false sense of belonging to those that are practicing witches. (I asked a girl once if she was a witch because she wore a pentacle and I was looking for a local friend and she laughed at me.) Being a witch is often lonely and kept as a personal identification.

Two - Witchcraft can be happy and sunshine and rainbows, but at it’s base it is not something to laugh about. Witchcraft is about using the world around you and bending it to your will. That is a huge responsibility to have on your shoulders, as what you do can often affect others around you, whether you mean it or not. You have to be able to accept that witchcraft means work, responsibility and dedication. It is not a toy.

Three - Not everything you see is up for grabs when it comes to magical practices. There is (yes, there is) such a thing as Cultural Appropriation and it is a harmful thing to spread and practice. I’ll leave you more information on this later, but the point is that not all practices and paths are open for you to explore. You need to be able to look at everything objectively and do research and ask questions. Where does this practice come from? Who started it? What culture is it from? More often than not, when you engage in these types of practices, you are not even getting the original information. Why would you want to so something that is just a half-assed version? It’s disrespectful and harmful to the actual, living people of color (POC) that still practice the original forms of magic or ideology that so easily gets passed off as “ancient and mystical” when it is really just a white-washed version.

Some other tidbits to keep in mind.

Magic is not black and/or white. It is a neutral force that you bend to your intentions. Calling “good” magic white, and “bad” magic black only propagates racial inequality and the subliminal message that POC are evil.

You don’t have to be Wiccan to be a witch. Wicca is a religion/cult/practice where members worship the god and goddess, revere nature and often use magic in order to supplement worship. They follow The Rede and the Three-Fold Law. Most of what you will see on Tumblr is actually Neo-Wicca, which does not require a practitioner to be initiated into a group by way of a Priestess or otherwise. Wicca is an initiatory cult. Neo-Wicca is based off of Wiccan teachings, and often allows the practitioner to be solitary.

You can follow a religion (any) or you can not follow a religion. Witchcraft can be viewed as a religion on its own, but generally speaking it is a practice that can be blended with religion or not.

Witchcraft does not equal Satanism - as Satanism has many forms and ideologies it branches to as well, some not even involving magic.

You don’t have to be pagan or worship any deities to be a witch.

You don’t need to be white to be a witch. (I’ve been asked this!!!)

You don’t need to be straight to be a witch.

You don’t need to be able-bodied to be a witch.

You don’t need crystals.

You don’t need fancy tools.

You don’t need to read Tarot.

You don’t need an Ouija board.

You don’t need to communicate with spirits.

You don’t need a familiar.

You don’t have a spirit animal unless you are Native American and studying in a tribe. (Please read this post)

Smudging is also NA, see above. Please refer to it as smoke cleansing.

You can curse.

You can choose not to curse.

You don’t have to practice every day.

You can take extended breaks.

You don’t even have to call yourself a witch! Witch is a gender neutral term, but some feel uncomfortable using it because of its feminine history. You could use Wix, sorcerer(ess), magician, practitioner, cunning man/woman, etc. You don’t even need a title at all.

You don’t need a magical name unless you want one.

I’m sure I’m forgetting something along the way, but the bottom line is that whatever you choose to do, you are valid. All you need is yourself and the drive to learn and practice, whatever that may mean to you. There is no right or wrong way to be a witch, unless you are doing something that is harmful to oppressed cultures and people.”

“You look exhausted,” Daisy commented as you shrugged in response, adjusting the beanie on your head before bracing the cold weather waiting outside. Leaving the building, the both of you walked along the bustling streets of Manhattan, making your way to a nearby coffee shop. “Didn’t get enough sleep last night?”

Your eyes flickering over to your friend, you nodded your head. “Yeah…I just had a lot on my mind,” you remarked casually, trying not to let the events of last night pervade your thoughts once more.

What do you do with Too Many Ideas Syndrome?

At first you embrace it: “I’ll never stop writing ‘cause I’ll never run out of ideas! This is awesome!!!!” And then you realize that with so many ideas, you’re going to have to pick one to run with and then it’s like uh…yeah…  

Too Many Ideas

This question has given me the opportunity to bring back the cute bunny post from 2015. In it I discuss how you bounce back and forth between ideas, so take a look. It might help!

In that post I mention that it’s really a matter of going with whatever idea is most interesting to you at any given time. This could change from day to day, so one day you might work with one idea and the next you work with another. This is really basic advice, so I’m going to try to take it one step further. 

Start with Your Characters

If you’re overwhelmed by how many concept/plot ideas you’ve got, make a list of each concrete idea and set it aside. Then, work on character development. Start with one key character and then work outward. 

You might be wondering, how do I create characters without any kind of plot, but writers do actually do this. We’ve got questions in our inbox right now from writers that have developed characters and are stumped on the plot. So it’s definitely possible. 

This key character you’re starting with? Begin by establishing aspects of them that are separate from plot, things like age, gender ID, racial/ethnic background, sexual ID, and obviously their name. Go as far as you feel compelled to go, but start with these basic facts. 

Then, think about their relationships/friendships. Do they have lifelong friends they knew as children? Do they have siblings they’re close with? A parent they bond well with? Think about those they’re friendly with, and then do the same thing you did when you started with your key character - their age, gender ID, ect. ect.

Next, think about potential future relationships. These don’t have to be romantic relationships. If your key character is an artsy type, maybe you envision them clashing with someone who operates with logic and reason, and then seeing how they become friends or enemies over it. This leads you to create yet another character. 

What you’re doing here is developing character dynamics. You’re thinking about who these characters are first, before you even begin to consider what will happen to them. Having a cast of characters in place before you plot anything out can immediately draw you in. As I’ve said before, this is one reason we write fanfiction. We’re attached to the established characters and we want to imagine them in new situations. 

The Character Quick-Change

Grab the list you made earlier of all your plot ideas and concepts. Start casting them in roles in the ideas you’ve already come up and see how they fit. One of your ideas might be set in a fictional, fantasy world with fairies, werewolves, dragons, while another idea might be an urban fantasy where they are no magical creatures but there is magic. And maybe another idea has no magic at all. So as you plug your characters into each vastly different idea, the two start to mold each other. Your characters drive the plot, and the plot you chose will help you add deeper levels to your existing characters. 

If something doesn’t feel right, move onto the next idea. Imagine your characters are standing on a stage, and you’re simply switching out the scenery and the costumes. You’re giving them opportunities to play different roles, but you’re allowing them to bring their own personalities and backgrounds to each role they take on. 

Eventually you should find something that just fits. And when that happens, you keep going with it. You might run into problems as you’re writing, and you might be tempted to move onto another idea, and that’s okay! Go with your instincts and see what happens. Discipline with an idea is hard to maintain, so don’t feel guilty about it. It’s something all writers struggle with. 

When it comes to frustration during the writing process, the trouble is differentiating between your idea just being dead and the typical writing problems that you’ll see with any idea. But I think that’s a whole other topic that maybe I’ll get into at a later date ;)

Writing = experimentation. Try things out and see what’s working and what isn’t. You’ll know an idea is worth exploring when it happens, because your excitement and enthusiasm will soar. 

And as an afterthought, here’s another post that might be useful to you: Focusing on One Project.

I’m going to vent out a little introspective Shiro love for a second. 

For those of you who don’t know me, I’m in my early twenties and last summer I was in a horrific car accident with my girlfriend in the car. An animal ran out in front of me on the highway, I swerved, and the car rolled enough times for the roof to curl in on me and nearly cut my arm off. This was shortly after I started this blog, about a month after s1 came out. I’ll tell you in a weirdly funny way that while I was pinned into the car with my head split open and a firefighter talking to me to keep me conscious, he asked what kind if tv I liked and I proceeded to tell him all about Voltron and the paladins until I fainted from blood loss.

The following months were rough. I was very lucky that I was taken to an amazing hospital where they were able to patch me up and save my life. I have a rod in my spine, two vertebrae melted together to replace a broken one, a titanium shoulder joint replacement, and some other medical enhancements that I don’t really understand in my leg, knee, and foot. But there wasn’t anything they could do for the nerve damage in my arm. I couldn’t move it. I spent four months in the hospital undergoing several procedures but neuroscience just hasn’t come far enough yet for my arm to be repaired.

In addition to the physical trauma, I was dealing with a lot of mental repercussions. I sat in the wreckage of a car barely conscious, babbling about Pidge and Hunk and the other paladins while feeling jagged bits of broken teeth in my mouth and seeing chunks of gore in front of my face. I felt guilty that I put my girlfriend in danger, had nightmares that the car flipped the other way and she was the one who ended up hurt. And I felt so, so lost. I felt helpless and scared but I was surrounded by people who were so worried about me and loved me so much that I didn’t want to worry them. So as best I could, I smiled and joked and even now when I have Bad Days I try hard not to let it show.

So, Shiro is a character I really identify with.

The show makes no effort to hide his PTSD. He has triggers and flashbacks, he jokes about his own pain and injuries, but in spite of all that he tries to lift up his team and be strong for them. He tells Allura to get some sleep despite staying awake himself. 

I really hope that in the future they’ll address Shiro’s scars. Because I’m covered head to foot with them and for a long time I tried hiding them. I’d wear long sleeves or pull my blanket up to my chin if I was bedridden. And I wonder if Shiro has scars too; ones he hides from the team because no matter how many times people say “scars are just a sign that something tried to kill you and failed,” to him they’re just a permanent memento of the worst time in his life. 

I dunno what point I’m trying to make here, I just like Shiro a lot and appreciate everyone who put work into him, @joshkeaton @thebestlaurenmontgomery and anyone else with tumblrs I don’t know about. 

Sidenote: while I was full of pain killers in the emergency room and trying to make things less tense I demanded eye contact with every nurse and told them if I got a bionic arm I wanted full creative control over the design. I think we all know what it would have looked like.

voltron crew and twitter
  • Shiro: Rarely tweets. If ever he does, he keeps it really short. Always greets his friends on their birthdays. Always ends tweets with "- Shiro" Once tweeted about stupid politics, but quickly deleted it.
  • Keith: Rarely tweets but ALWAYS replies to mentions. Bitches about Twitter character limits. Posts doodles of space and stars, tagged Shiro in it once and beamed when he got a like and a retweet. He posted more after that.
  • Lance: Twitter Famous. Very noisy and likes to chat way too much. Gets into twitter wars and LOVES it. He mentions Hunk way too much, causing Hunk to use twitter more. Uses way too many hearts and kisses. Retweets a lot.
  • Hunk: Only ever replies to Lance tbh. Posts a lot of what he cooks and bakes. Gives baking advices to people who ask and is always happy to give away his secret recipe. Once had to teach someone maths over tweets.
  • Pidge: Emoji master. People hardly get what she's trying to say, except Keith. Keith always knows, even if they're just a series of emojis. Accidentally posted codes she was supposed to use for hacking. Got reprimanded by Shiro.

I buried this point in a reblog of one of my other GotG posts, but I wanted to pull it out into its own post because I think it’s important.

I think this movie contains one of the most accurate and sympathetic depictions of the fannish way of thinking that I’ve ever seen in mainstream media. This is not a movie about fandom, but I think it is actually more sympathetic to, and understanding of, the way people in fandom think and behave than 99% of TV or movies’ attempts to depict more classically fandom-associated things like fan conventions, fanfic, or cosplay. 

These are movies about a guy who uses music and pop culture to process his emotions and provide a framework for thinking about the world, and while there are times when it’s played somewhat for laughs (e.g. trying to explain David Hasselhoff to Gamora), most of the time the movies are as sincere about it as Peter is. Even in the David Hasselhoff scene, Gamora doesn’t laugh; she might not fully understand, but she recognizes how important that fantasy was to Peter and just tells him that she thinks it’s sweet – I mean, if you think about it, what happened here is that the main protagonist in an action movie described a self-insert fantasy to a “cool” friend and got a sympathetic and understanding response. When does that EVER happen?

(In a reblog addition to the original version of this post, katiekeysburg contributed a link to an article with James Gunn that suggests there’s a certain amount of autobiography in Peter’s use of fantasy as a way of coping with reality, so a lot of this is intentional.)

And it’s also a movie in which the action-hero main character carries around a completely nonfunctional (in practical terms) comfort object with him, and the other characters are totally supportive of that. (The practically-nonfunctional part is important, I think, because I can think of other movies in which the protagonist has something like a weapon given to them by a dead loved one, but I can’t think of anything else I’ve ever seen in mainstream genre fiction in which the protagonist carries an object which is only used to comfort them and calm them down, and is actively shown being used that way on a regular basis.) In the first movie, Peter’s friends don’t really get it yet, but even there, the only actual semi-derogatory reference to it that I can remember is Drax’s “You’re an imbecile” when he realizes Peter went back to the Kyln in the middle of a firefight to retrieve the Walkman, and given how little interaction they’ve had so far and the fact that everyone’s lives were in jeopardy because of waiting for him, that’s a reasonable reaction under the circumstances.

But no one ever makes fun of him for needing it, and I’m pretty sure that by the time we get around to the second movie, when they’ve started to recognize how important it is to him, his friends would be the ones going through hell and high water to get it back for him (as evidenced by the fact that Rocket apparently retrieved Yondu’s broken arrow from Ego’s planet while the planet was literally blowing up around him – I’m sure any of them would do the same in a heartbeat for Peter’s music player).

Even Yondu seems to have been supportive of it, because Peter’s confidence with the Walkman, and with playing his music out loud in general, suggests that Yondu never used it as a punishment – that is, he could easily have withheld it to control Peter (surely it must have been obvious that if he’d wanted to control and break the kid, taking away his music would’ve been the way to do that), but he doesn’t seem to have done that; Peter never behaves like he grew up under the threat of having his music taken away from him. In fact, we find out in the second movie that Yondu actually made copies of the music on Peter’s tape and kept it on the ship, presumably in case the original was lost.

In both movies, trying to take away Peter’s music/comfort object is shown as something that only really bad people do (like the Kyln prison guard, or Ego crushing his Walkman), and people show their love for him by giving him more music, or by letting him share his music with them, or just making sure that he has it.

I just. These movies, you guys. ❤ ❤ ❤

Just so you know, you matter a lot

[submission] I’m an animal person. Well, mammals specifically. Worked with them for years and never really *got* keeping reptiles, but I didn’t knock it. I live in one of those big apartment complexes with indoor hallways, and about a week and a half ago I was just chilling, minding my own business. I got up to grab a snack… 15 minutes into netflix and chill I walked by my foyer and a random noodle gave me this look

I….was…a bit taken aback. Reptiles aren’t my thing but I surmised he was A) not venomous and B) probably not from the united states east cost. 

I discovered he was scared but not aggressive and I figured he’d escaped from someone, and since I knew snakes needed to be kept warm I put him in my bra and went to knock on some doors. Nobody knew anything about him and eventually I went back, and looked up reptile rescue centers and the closest one was a hundred miles away. This was on a Sunday and I wouldn’t be able to get him there till Saturday, and I couldn’t just keep him in my bra for a week. I did a google search and came up with your normal rubbermaid and paper towel setup and…it seemed…idk. Reptile person I wasn’t, animal person I WAS and I decided to browse the tungle to see what I could see. 

I found your blog. 

I learned he had stuck shed like crazy, and that there was much more to keeping a snake than $20 worth of stuff from target. I also figured if I was going to shell out to give a temporary home…well…I’d just make it his permanent one. I didn’t have the chance to scour your blog as much as I wanted, since I felt bad for keeping him where he was for so long, but I went to the pet store and set up this

(it’s heated from underneath and 2 temp and humidity monitored) it’s not exactly what I want it to be, but I did what I could with what I had and since then I’ve made a few modifications (bigger water bowl for a start) 

I’ve been all over your blog and your frustration with the people who claim ball pythons are completely sedentary are starting to anger me too, because from what I learned and what I can tell this dude is doing a lot better. 

The fact that there are people who just their snakes nearly immobile and tucked away astounds me. 

(ignore old tape, tank was sanitized and salvaged from apartment recycling room)

He climbs. Sometimes when I stay up I’ll take a peek at his tank and he’ll be all over his bamboo pole or plants or on his hide. 

He choses places to chill other than his hides (that’s a super low powered heat lamp I used to warm up my budgie for spray baths; wondered if he’d like some ‘sun’ on his scales)

He has, thus far, been nothing but an enthusiastic eater.

I went from seeing people collect reptiles like trading cards and thinking that was all there was to it, to being absolutely fascinated by this chill little noodle and loving to see what he’s up to . I went from complete ambivalence to becoming more and more passionate about proper reptile husbandry. 

You don’t have to post this, I just want you to know that for every asshole who should probably stick to those morimo moss balls, you inspire another person to learn everything she can about properly caring for these guys, enriching and monitoring their environment, and trying to make sure they are as healthy and happy as possible. 

You ARE making a difference.

I really dont have any words that describe how i feel, but this is one of the sweetest things anyone has ever sent me. Thank you so much for sharing!!!
