keen writing

anonymous asked:

CASSIE I NEED YOUR WRITING EXPERTISE okay so character A and character B are in a relation ship and i would like to have character B secretly doing drugs or something like that, something really dark and my plan is to have them fight nd theres a quote from an argument that keeps popping in my head like "How long have you been hiding this from me?" And i want it to be really heart shattering but i dont know what to do or how to write it please help me

Usually when I have a quote like that I try to make sure the focus stays on that quote, I want it to have an emotional punch to it. I would say try to have the conversation around it be sort of lower key, not intense yelling or fighting. Have the revelation build up in your characters thoughts: heart speeding up, scared to be found out, shame, nowhere to hide, feeling trapped, and then it all comes out and just describe how it feels, the aftermath, how it’s all falling apart. 

My advice is try and make it seem as upending and earth shattering as it would be to the characters. Think about what would make you sad in that moment and put it in there too.

“Why do you always disappear?” he asked, on a morning I planned not running into anyone, with tired eyes and a weary heart I answered much to his surprise. “Because every now and then I tend to lose myself. I disappear in order to find her.” Though it was true, a part of me held back wanting to say I just needed someone to notice. That losing myself came in all sorts of consequences, and I just wanted someone else to come searching for that part of me I lost, too. And so he smiled, and asked if I wanted to eat my croissant. 

Dear old love,
I want you to remember
that sometimes
I get afraid of your absence
I get afraid that once
this conversation is over
you will no longer find the need
to find me in all the chaos
To answer,
when I call
To acknowledge me,
when I am near
I get afraid
you’ll disappear again
when I slowly start
to show you my heart
that if I tell you
everything I want to say
you’ll be halfway out the door
I want you to remember,
that sometimes
to love
means to try again
even when it hurts
even when you’re terrified
of the outcome
even when you’re far away
because love waits
love surrenders
and love forgives.

I started writing again but I'm not really sure how to get my work out there on tumblr. What specific tags would you recommend I use other than just gamegrumps fanfiction?

Don’t use ga/me gru/mps as a tag!! The tags for fic are shipgrumps and polygrumps as well as whatever pairing you are using. We try to avoid using the show name as it will show up in the main tag so we want to keep it out of the main tags. Same for not using the names of the guys or gals in the tags. 

When I post my fic I do pairing first so for example: egobang, shipgrumps, polygrumps, and then i tag any kinks and whether or not its nsfw. You should probably also add what tag you use for your fics so people can click on that to find more if they desire. 

See, when you meet someone
for the first time,
you don’t really imagine that they would
turn out to be someone important to you.
You don’t really assume that
when you first learn someone’s name
that after awhile you would begin to really
get to know them inside and out,
or how you begin to pick up their habits,
and start talking like them,
or finishing the food off their plates
you don’t really see these things
happening, when you first meet someone.
Without really expecting it, this someone
who was only just a stranger to you before,
can all of a sudden mean so much more,
can become someone so special,
and someone you can’t see yourself
living without.

Your first OQ drabble/fic/one-shot

So while this isn’t quite the first fic I wrote for OQ (I had a few one shots under the title ‘Castles In Maine’, but deleted it X amount of months ago for a reason I can’t even remember), it’s the first multi-chapter I’ve ever completed, and the very reason I even became part of the fandom. This fic is the reason I have some of the very bestest friends in my life, so while I’m not 100% keen on the writing (I’m still determined to one day rewrite the whole thing), it will always hold a special place in my heart!! 

Summary: Robin & Regina’s 17-year-old daughter gets thrown back in time to when the Snow Queen has arrived in Storybrooke and has to fight to get back to her time whilst her parent’s relationship is up in the air.

Total trash for Red/Liz/Ressler. Sorry. Didn’t mean for it to happen. But it did. And I love it. And now I have a new OT3 (only have two).

Shout out to anyone else who might have interests in these guys. Show yourselves please :)

Do they even have a name? (like I know my ST OT3 is McSpirk)

Would you ever consider writing a YUTA reader soccer AU where the reader is like a referee and YUTA slams the reader with a soccer ball or something of the sort? :3 I love YUTA so much and UR neighborly story is by far one of my favorites 💕

So glad you liked it! And I’m absolutely keen to write something else for Yuta (I actually have a couple of shorter things planned), and I would say yes to this au idea except I literally know absolutely nothing about soccer, and I probably wouldn’t be able to write it very effectively, you know? It’s such an adorable idea but I’m not sure how well I would be able to execute it

I remember how it all started, and I just want to go back to the very first day you walked into my life. It’s not so easy trying to rekindle and spark an old flame, but I do miss the person you were and the person I was while trying to save what became of the two of us.

I'm writing a fanfic where a handful of youtubers (primarily grumps) develop superpowers(for some reason I'll think of later) but right now I'm trying to decide what everyone's powers will be and I've hit a brick wall on what some of the grumps' powers are and I was wondering if you had any ideas?

I’m never good at coming up with powers. I try to think about what they like/how they are/what their skills are irl. 

You could give Holly something with flight or she likes magic so some element like that? 

Arin I usually say like super strength? Maybe he’s skilled with a sword? 

Dan, maybe something with his voice? Or, if he could control an element (water) 

Suzy, something morbid tbh, maybe she can drain the life from someone or cast summons or something. 

Ross, he’s tough?? Maybe he’s really fast? 

Barry, hmm, something lowkey and concealable but is pretty deadly. 

Brian if you do elements for Dan maybe he is Dan’s opposite element, so if Dan has water Brian has fire? (i could see him having ice too) 

Vernon, he can shape shift into a cat. You tell me how useful that is. A cat that knows how to ride a bike. 

Jack: Normal dude who got roped into this mess. 

I know you hold back because you’re afraid. I know you stop halfway because you’re tired. I know you reluctantly open your heart because you no longer have the energy to stitch it back together. And I understand. It’s frightening to wake up one day and realize your sun no longer shines.
