let me tell you about this ship

I’m pretty sure many of you don’t relate to Sana and Yousef.. But let me tell you that moment they had when the ed sheeran song was playing, That was something so strong. You could see Sana holding in her breath from his close proximity- When he passed her the peeler and the carrot.. and both of their hands touched that was like OMG. We don’t do skin ship often ESP. with someone we like if you’re raised in a Muslim family and you abide to your faith.   So the slightest things are enlarged by 10000% and Yousef was totally doing all of that on purpose. Him bragging about liking kids too!!! he did that for sana to drop dead for him (which she did and so did I ) omg boY I SAW THROUGH ALL THAT. LMAO IM JUST FANGIRLING BC IM SO HAPPY TO SEE TWO MUSLIM TEENS FLIRTING AND STRUGGLING BECAUSE THEY BOTH HAVE CRUSHES BUT DON’T WANT TO CROSS THE BOUNDARIES IN ISLAM  AND THATS HOW WE MUSLIMS DO. IM LIVIN

Taffy Headcannons with Vulnerable!Jeff

A/N: Okay so I saw that Clony calls this ship (Clay x Jeff x Tony) Taffy, and I love it, so I’m getting on board!! Sorry if this wasn’t quite what you wanted anon, let me know if I can change anything! Thanks for the request :)


Taffy Headcannons with Vulnerable!Jeff

  • Okay so Jeff may be the star of the baseball team but he still worries he’s not a good enough player


  • Tony and Clay both tell him it’s bullshit- which it is, he’s the best on the team


  • But he still worries


  • In fact, he worries about a lot. About his school work, his sports, his relationship


  • That last one plays on his mind the most


  • Some days Jeff is super confident and giving Tony and Clay all the affection


  • Then the next he needs to be the one getting the affection


  • But Clay and Tony don’t mind


  • They’ll all cuddle up, Jeff snuggled into Clay’s chest while Tony sings sweetly to them in Spanish


  • This leaves Jeff a smiling mess


  • Though he’d like to be big spoon a lot of the time, Clay does often cuddle him instead


  • Tony always holds Jeff’s hand over tables in school to help ground him when others stare


  • He sometimes worries that Tony and Clay will run off together, because of the whole Hannah tapes thing- which they tell him about


  • But his boyfriends always assure him that it’s the three of them, not two


  • Though it’s not really Clay and Tony’s scene, they go to parties with Jeff and try to fit more into his life and where he’s comfortable


  • But then he sometimes feels like a burden


  • So Tony will drive him home holding his hand and Clay will lean forward in the back seat and wrap his arms around him


  • Then when they get home they’ll squish him in the middle in bed and cuddle while they all talk


  • If he’s ever sad they’ll corner him and just shower him in kisses, which he laughs at until he later sees the hickeys


  • He may be tall and muscly but he’s vulnerable, and he’ll crumble under his boyfriends given the chance


  • He is also very protective- but in a sweet way


  • If either of them get so much as a cold they’re not allowed out of bed


  • He gets nervous when they laugh with other people, but he tries to not be the jealous type


  • It’s just that his favourite place to be is snuggled up with Clay and Tony where he can be as vulnerable as he wants

  • And honestly, his boyfriends love Vulnerable!Jeff as well, because it’s just real and raw
Sleepover Saturday!!!!

Yes it is back and here to stay… at least until you guys get sick of it. So here’s the run-down

  • Ships- Send me a description of yourself, anything you think is important, and your preference of male or female, if you have any and I will tell you who I ship you with
  • Headcanons- Anything that you want to talk about, AU’s, secret habits you think the heroes have, etc.

~Mod Lillian

its kind of sad that I didn’t figure out I was gay till a few years ago and one of the main reasons why was cause I was into the jaime/brienne ship on here and I thought Brienne was a total babe but everyone was going on about jaime and I didn’t get cause OBVIOUSLY brienne’s the hot one till one day I was like “wait a sec…”

some sort of fixation…

  • Bodhi, sweet angel Bodhi, paid all of the attention in the empire induction safety talk; he presses the three red buttons at 12, 6 and 3 o'clock, twists anticlockwise 45° and the grenade is disarmed.
  • Unbenkownst to Chirrut, Jyn placed her crystal within his staff, a tiny morsel of hope; the blaster shot headed straight for his heart, strikes it instead, and is deflected into his shoulder.
  • Baze, seeing his love in pain and in danger, but not without hope for survival, flies into a rage and fights his way back to the ship, dragging chirrut behind him; he kills 32 men, and saves one.
  • Cassian and Jyn are just about to step into the lift when Bodhi hisses from the radio telling them to get where he can see them FAST; they don’t look down when they step over Krennic, even when he grips Jyn’s ankle and begs
  • Two days later Cassian is well enough to argue his way out of medbay, down to droid storage, where he loads K2-SO’s last backup into another imperial droid; K3-SO sighs and says, “Did you let me die again? You know as soon as I work out how, I’m deleting the self-sacrifice algorithm you wrote into me.”

so i was thinking how much people seemed to overlook Lance listening to music in season 1 may or may not be because i always do the same and then this popped out. This takes place sometime during season two. (WC: 1208)


Keith lays down in bed, curling himself against Lance’s side, who is putting on Pidge’s headphones. He breathes in, relishing in the scent of pure Lance

They’re in “Lance’s” room, but in all honesty, it’s both of theirs. Their clothes are both here, they both sleep here, they both brush their teeth and shower here. It’s theirs, and that little word change has never made his heart flutter so often.

But there’s only one thing that Keith is really thinking about. The one thing he always thinks about before they go to bed.

“Hey, Lance?” says Keith, wrapping an arm around Lance’s bare waist.

Lance pauses mid-motion. “Yeah?”

“Why do you always wear those in bed?” asks Keith. He lifts his head, resting his chin on Lance’s chest to face him.

THEY JUST LET HER GET AWAY??? JUST LIKE THAT??? ARE YOU KIDDING ME???????? 

Navy has the ship. She’s back in space. She’s going to collect the Rubies, something the Crystal Gems should have done A LONG TIME AGO, and they’re going to return to homeworld to tell the diamonds about the crystal gems.

And Lapis let Navy get away. Literally just because “she was right”.

What’s worse is that Eyeball KNOWS Steven has Rose’s gem. That’s not a detail she’s going to leave out when they meet the Diamonds again.

THE CRYSTAL GEMS HAVE LITERALLY SCREWED THEMSELVES AND THE EARTH BY BEING SO SLOPPY AND NOT COLLECTING THE RUBIES. LITERALLY WHY DID THEY NOT COLLECT THEM SOONER??? WHY DIDN’T LAPIS STOP NAVY??? WHY DIDN’T GARNET WARN STEVEN THAT THIS MIGHT HAPPEN??? Y’ALL ARE FUCKED NOW.

10 Things to learn to improve your tumblr experience.

1. Learn to post for yourself, and only for yourself. It doesn’t help anyone when you only post and reblog things because they are popular at the time. You may think people won’t notice, but your followers do. Never lie to yourself. Your blog is your own. Use it.

2. Learn that not every fight must be fought. Sometimes it’s easier to just step away from a problem that triggers you too much - and that’s absolutely okay. You don’t have to fight things that you don’t feel comfortable to fight. You are allowed to step away.

3. Learn that you cannot please everyone. As soon as you start to put yourself out there people will come at you. It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to be the nicest, informed, and open-minded towards everyone. You will always offend someone. When someone searches for something to attack you, let me tell you they will find something. You have to accept that not everyone can be pleased. It’s hard, but it’s reality.

4. Learn to ignore anon hate or hate in general. People who want to hate you will hate you. You cannot do anything against it. Breath. Delete. Go on. Those people are not worth your time.

5. Learn that it is okay to click away. Tumblr is loud about voicing opinions, shipping and social justice. Sometimes from people who are not as educated as they try to give the impression and search for any little nag to push limits. Don’t start a fight. It won’t do anything good here on tumblr. If you feel the need to do something against social injustice go out and do it yourself. Don’t do it behind a screen. It leads to nothing except hate and venom and people trying to gut each other out. If you read something that just riles you really up - be it about a series or a pairing or something social or whatever - just click away. It brings nothing. You will only feel more angered when the person answers and it will go back and forth and back and forth and - time you could use to do something else more productively. And with less stress.

6. Learn that your opinion =/= the opinion of someone else. You might like x pairing, while someone else thinks it is disgusting. Or the other way around. Learn to accept these things and leave it be. What good does it bring to try and force your opinion onto someone else? You’re not a dictator. Everyone is free to have their own opinion. Just like yourself.

7. Learn to respect people. Learn to respect artists and writers and - yes - edit makers too. Some people sit hours before their screens to produce something. They don’t write/draw/do edits for you - they share their stuff with you. If it is something you don’t like, just ignore it. Never tell them what they did wrong in your opinion - remember point 6. Your opinion is not theirs.  

8. Learn that attacking someone =/= educating someone. If someone doesn’t know something or said something harmful in a post, don’t attack them immediately. Often these people are just not educated about the subject. Going into their askbox and leaving hateful, sometimes vile messages and calling them names or even threatening them will lead to nothing. If you really want to reach out to them try to send a polite message. Check their age. Most people who react like this are surprisingly young. If they block off and don’t want to be educated, no matter their age, there’s nothing you can do. Swallow your anger and click away. It’s not worth it. The real world still waits for you after you log off and hating on a stranger brings you nothing.

9. Learn that no one is perfect. Definitely not you. People make mistakes. Learn to forgive and move on. Holding a grudge brings only sorrow and misery.

10. Learn that tumblr is not the world. The real world is so much worse. Try to enjoy your time here instead of letting it ruin you.

anonymous asked:

Just leave them alone if you don't like it?

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to open up lenaluthorisgay.tumblr.com. It’s nice of you to visit my little corner of the internet. Now. Please kindly get the fuck away.

Because look. We’ve said it before. We will keep saying it. We will quite literally probably never stop saying it. The story they are telling is offensive, out of character, and quite horrifically disgusting. 

There are posts that go into a lot more detail here, and I’ll link them if you actually care, which I’m pretty sure you don’t. But let me give you a summary: Mountain Dew, literal slave owner and self-proclaimed misogynist, has disrespected Kara, gone against her direct wishes in their relationship, and objectified her and emotionally manipulated her not just once but many times.

This isn’t about a ship war. This is about the fact that they took a show that had a strong, incredible female protagonist who was amazing not just because she was a superhero but because she was a good person and turned it into a show where said protagonist literally says “I can give up being who I am if I have you, a boy, in my life.” That’s not healthy. That’s the opposite of healthy. That’s so big of a red flag it is emitting radiation and Kara is going to lose her powers because she’s suddenly near a red sun.

It’s about the fact that people are romanticizing and idolizing an extremely unhealthy relationship because Mountain Dew is a conventionally attractive white guy. It’s about the fact that this show is teaching a generation of young women that this is okay. And you know what? It isn’t.

puffyball13  asked:

I loved billdip for a long time but often other fans of gravity falls said mean and rude things about it and to those who ship it? As a fellow shipper, I ask for your wisdom to tell me why?

Hello sweetheart, I’m sorry for taking so long to reply you.

For your question, I pretty much don’t want to discuss about this publicly but I think it would be better if I say it out one more time. 

As much as I hate to admit this but BillDip is neither the most popular ship AND the most hated ship in this fandom, the reason can be summarized in one word: pedophilia - which stands for a relationship between an adult with a child. Others reasons is about abusive relationship or some sort.

If you ever want an advice from me, let me tell you one thing, that is certainly important to remember if you ever see someone harrassing the ship again: they are fictional characters. None of the thing we artists/authors draw/write are real, it’s just our own imaginations. 

Sure when I say this some of you might wonder: “Then it’s okay to ship pedophilia with fictional characters because it’s your imagination?”. If I answer this in my very opinion, I’m the kind who would like to build a proper relationship for the couple I like so I can avoid all the bad things happen to them, but if I answer this in the role of all BillDip shippers, I must say yes and no, cause we all people and we have weird tastes in something sometimes but that not mean we support/are that kind in real life, fiction and real life are really, really different, please remember. It’s like watching some Disney movie which make you wondering “How the heck can two characters fall in love in like one day?”, but yet you still ship them. Yeah, that’s pretty much it mate, fiction don’t happen in real life. 

So if someone don’t like the ship please just move on, this fandom is not about us shippers so don’t pull the rage to you by yourself just because you don’t like it or want people to stop shipping it, trust me, they won’t stop…

I think the thing I find most entertaining about Jaal is the fact that, whenever he does anything romantic with Ryder after introducing her to his family, he IMMEDIATELY tells Sahuna (because you get email correspondences from her after Jaal’s confession, and when you consumate your relationship with him) …

I can just picture him in the tech lab on the ship, frantically emailing his True Mother, “MOM, RYDER LET ME KISS HER. I AM ENCHANTED, I LOVE HER.”

He’s just. 2 cute. 2 precious. Such a sweet Mama’s boy. I love him. 💖💖💖

Expectations: Exceeded

I can’t believe what just happened. I have watched an episode written by the dreadful duo and I can say that I really liked it despite the fact that Cas was not in it. Let me tell you what exactly I enjoyed about it. (Spoilers are obviously coming, so you have been warned).

Eileen was back. Sam has kept contact with her and that made me extremely happy because I ship Sam/Eileen with all I have. After this episode I’m more convinced than ever that she could be Sam’s perfect endgame. I hope we see her again and alive.

Mick got a sort of redemption arc. I loved the uniforms at Kendrick’s (shout out to Hogwarts), and I knew Dr. Hess would be a mean woman since I saw her and immediately thought of Dolores Umbridge. Mick’s flashbacks made me really sad. I felt empathy and pain in my heart for him, but I also felt really proud of him when he made the right choice and when he stood up for the Winchesters. I couldn’t help the tears running down my cheeks when I saw the end of his story. I’ll miss him! :(

Mary’s this-is-just-for-fun attitude with Mr. Ketch felt refreshing to me. It seemed that the closest to develop some sort of feelings after their encounter was him, not her. I wonder what he will do now that he’s got the direct order to eliminate all American hunters, including Mary. Will he try to spare her life but not her sons’? It’s obvious he doesn’t like the idea of Mary splitting her energy between hunting and her boys. He sees everything black and white, so the fact that she’s hunting means to him that Sam and Dean aren’t so important to Mary. He’s wrong, of course, but I’m interested to see what happens next.

The rest of the episode was good enough. Lucifer is still trying to play Crowley. Will the King of Hell be able to keep himself 10 steps ahead or will his pride and ego be his downfall? On the other hand, I’m not so interested in what will happen to Kelly Kline and Lucifer’s child, but I’m engaged enough to be paying attention to that part of the story as well.

Both Dean and Sam are worried about Cas. They mentioned him a couple of times, and we even saw Dean trying insistently to contact him. Cas is family, so the Winchesters are obviously concerned because he’s M.I.A.

The subtextual romantic interest parallel was so near the surface that I felt it was almost text. At the end of the episode, Sam asked Dean (again in the episode) if he’d heard anything from Cas yet. Then he asked Dean if he thought Cas was alright and Dean answered he didn’t know, but his face was screaming “I’m really worried”.

(Source: X)

What happened immediately after that? Dean asked Sam “Where’s Eileen?” Both Winchesters were asking about a person that is definitely special for the other brother. In this episode, we had evidence of the very close and special relationship that Sam and Eileen have (which Dean even called “cute”).

(Source: X)

Dean and Eileen interacted fine, but it was evident that the real connection was between Eileen and Sam. On the other hand, Sam was definitely worried about Cas, but the one calling him and leaving him messages was Dean. It was also evident that the real connection is between Dean and Cas. Eileen right now has a good profile to be Sam’s love interest in the future. Does Cas have the right profile to be Dean’s love interest as well?

I have to go to bed now. I have a meeting very early tomorrow (or later today?), so I have to be up again in less than 4 hours. I just couldn’t go to sleep without writing something about this episode that for sure exceeded my expectations.

Dating Blackwatch!Genji Would Include...

these are my personal headcanons for my boy so if any of these are insane, you know why lol // this is also kinda long so I’m putting some under the line

  • to start things off, he is literally the angriest man alive so like be prepared
  • tbh he’s probably not ready for a relationship at first, you’ll have to be very patient with him
    • his brother just tried to kill him after all so family issues are also going to be a main dilemma for him
  • you’re going to have to be the most patient person because genji is going through a lot of internal conflicts at this point and he’s just consumed with rage and confusion and revenge
    • this is also why zenyatta is able to whisk him away so easily and turn him into the lovely cyborg ninja dude we all know and love today

___________


There was something to be said for reunion sex. Explosive tangles of lips and teeth and limbs. Aggressive clawing and slapping flesh, just all consuming need, I miss you, I love you, I’m so happy you’re back. Saying with her body what she couldn’t put into words, I’m sorry spoken in the rough tug of his hair, forgive me painted in teeth along his neck, I’m with you in the rough slide and rasp of skin on skin.

Afterwards was harder. Sweat drying and breath calming and the words wouldn’t come. Goodnight whispered into her hair, slow measured breaths as he gave into exhaustion. Her ring winking mockingly in the light of the moon through the window.

“I love you.”

I Want You to Show Me by hazelNuts (1/1 | 1,510 | G)

anonymous asked: “Hi i just wanted to leave this silly fun prompt with you to see if you can use it. Stiles is so surprise none of his neighbors have called his dad and complained about the loud slightly off tune singing that can be heard outside the Sheriffs house every night always around 3 am. Stiles himself finds it amusing and cute that the mighty Alpha Derek Hale chooses to sleep serenade Stiles with cheesey 80’s love ballards.”

Stiles slides out of his car and softly closes the door, wincing when the hinges groan. He trails behind Derek as they walk to his house, close enough that he can intervene if necessary, but far enough away that he knows he won’t wake Derek up. When they arrive at his place, he sits on the porch steps, pulls out his phone, and waits.

Okay, I’ll talk shit about Gotham and make fun of it because they didn’t make my ship canon but let me tell you all why you should actually watch Gotham or at least give it a chance:

1. It’s a good beginner introduction into the Batman verse because while it doesn’t follow exact canon, they follow characterization and make the story easy enough to understand. It doesn’t just force you to watch Bruce Wayne grow up into becoming Batman, it shows you how each and every character, even the ones that aren’t very liked in the Batman verse, got to be who they are today.

2. They have LGBT+ representation within the first episodes. They have a lesbian, two bi characters, and a openly gay character. They don’t just hint at the characters being gay or make it a big shameful thing, one of them wakes up one day and just tells someone else “I need to tell this person I love them”

3. The character development is amazing. A character goes from being selfish and refusing to risk his life for anyone and put people he becomes close to in harm’s way to get what he wants to willing to sit in jail, ruin his reputation, and then later on let someone kill him just to save someone else’s life.

4. THIS IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE BEST REASONS OF ALL: THEY HAVE DIVERSE CHARACTERS AND HAVE RECENTLY CASTED AN ARABIC MAN TO PLAY AN ARABIC CHARACTER. THEY DONT WHITEWASH CHARACTERS. THIS IS SO GOOD. THEY HAVE STRONG BLACK WOMEN WHO KICK ASS AND GET WHAT THEY WANT WITHOUT BEING A STEREOTYPE. THEY HAVE STRONG WOMEN IN GENERAL.

5. THE FANDOM HAS BEEN THE NICEST FANDOM I HAVE EVER BEEN IN. EVERYONE HAS BEEN SO NICE TO ME AND I HAVENT GOTTEN EVEN A SLIGHT BIT OF SHIP HATE FOR ANYTHING THAT I SHIP. But note: I’m not saying there aren’t bad people, I’m just saying the vast majority of the people I have found have been wonderful and kind.

6. The characters are so easy to love, even those that aren’t supposed to be liked or were just thrown in to help the story along and don’t exist are easy to fall in love with. And they’re all complex characters that have good and bad parts of their personalities.

In short; Gotham is a wonderful show that really gets you into the whole Batman verse with a nice diverse cast, great story, wonderful and ever changing characters and overall an great fandom with very little hate.

The first few days of Jared not seeing you at work, he accepted that. He didn’t expect you to to be around him much for a while after what had happened. When it started to hit a week of him not seeing you at work, or anywhere else, he started to wonder. “Jen?”

“Yeah?” Jensen turned from the screen he was re-watching the last scene they shot on.

“Have you seen Y/N?”

Jensen thought for a second. “No, haven’t heard from her since River’s birthday. Why? You haven’t either?”

Jared shook his head. “Not since…”

“Since Gen took you back?” Jared nodded. Jensen knew everything that happened. “I’m sure she’s around. Probably just keeping some distance for a bit. Give her time.”

“Yeah..” Jared nodded. “Yeah, maybe we just need time..” He scanned the area hoping to get a glimpse of you hurrying off somewhere at least.

Hello! So I was scouring the Internet for advice today but I couldn't find any on this topic. My problem isn't that I don't have any ideas (I probably have too many) but the problem is that I don't LOVE any of my ideas. I like them. I think they're all fine ideas. But liking them isn't going to motivate me long enough to finish a novel. How can I give my ideas that extra uumph to make me love them? How can I figure out what's missing or why I don't feel this way about any of my ideas?

Hello, nonny!  What a challenging question…  This one’s been in my inbox a couple days, just because it’s such a big question.  But I’ve thought it over and I think I have some ideas for you :)


The Thrill Is Gone – How to Find It Again

So generally, there’s no one answer or cure-all to this problem.  I’ve had this issue multiple times, with different causes.  My first novel didn’t have enough meat to the plot; my second novel had been over-planned in my head to the point that it no longer excited me.  My third novel had way too much plot, so that by the time I got ¾ the way through, I’d written over 200K words and felt sick of the idea.  I started my fourth novel way too soon, and am now going back and planning it more!  So there are obviously many different reasons that a story doesn’t take off (or dries up eventually).

The first step is to figure out what’s missing, like you said.  There are a few aspects of your story to assess…


1. Plot

I’m discussing plot first because, to me, it’s the most important part of fiction.  Plot, conflict, and stakes are foremost to my stories.  You could have the most complex and sympathetic characters, but without plot, they’re static and become boring.  But for some reason, this is the part of story ideas that new authors neglect most!

So if your story has great characters and an immersive setting, but you can’t get into it, try asking a few questions about your plot:

  • What is the point of the plot?  What’s the message you’re conveying in the story?  Even if your story isn’t an allegory or a metaphor or the next Chronicles of Narnia, there should always be a conclusion to which all plots arrive – otherwise, the story can feel aimless.  The best way to find your message is to look at the conflicts involved (e.g. Man vs. Man, Man vs. Nature, etc.) and find the “winner”.  What worldview, belief, or concept “defeats” the other concepts?  It can be as simple as Good vs. Evil, or more complex, like Loving the Sincere Drug Addict vs. Settling for the Selfish Dentist (provokes the question “Is love worth danger in relationships?”).
  • Does the plot have ups and downs?  And really consider both ends of the spectrum here.  Stories become dull if they are made up of victory after victory – or if they’re made up of nothing but loss and tragedy.  No matter the genre, you have to strike some sort of balance, lest the story become predictable and emotionally non-engaging.  Find victories and failures, even in unassuming places, to keep readers invested and hopeful.
  • Do you have a satisfactory ending?  Or do you have the ending     planned yet?  I’ve found that I can’t really commit to an idea unless I see a resolution – otherwise I feel too nervous to start.  If you do have an ending planned, make sure it’s the right ending.  It can feel like there’s one possible conclusion, and once you’ve found it, you stick to it – but question it, brainstorm it.  It may not be a happy ending every time, but when you find the right one, you’ll know it.
  • Do you have the right plot at all?  Look at your story as a whole.  Does it start too early or too late, relative to the real meat,     the real action?  Is it told from the most impactful POV?  Does the plot cover too much ground for one book, or is it not enough to fill the pages?  Consider all the characters, backstories, and subplots you have, and ask yourself if any of them are more interesting than the main plot.  If so, shift your focus.  Use them instead.

2. Characters

Maybe it’s not your plot that’s going sideways.  Maybe you have it all worked out – the head, the tail, the whole damn thing – but it still doesn’t feel right.  It doesn’t feel like it’s coming to life, somehow.  It feels flat.

That can be a character problem.  It would be like sitting by the campfire and hearing the most fascinating, horrifying story, except it’s told by a man with The Most Boring Voice Who Talks So Incredibly Slowly and Takes All the Fun Out of Everything.  An example: The Hunger Games.  Those books bored the crap out of me.  Unless someone was being killed or Haymitch and Effie were interacting, I just didn’t care.  And those books had a great plot behind them!

So here’s what you need for a good cast of characters:

  • A solid protagonist.  Solid = three-dimensional, empathetic, and relatable; having a goal, an internal conflict, a self-image, and fears or shame.  They should have different facets of themselves – their head and their heart, their desires and doubts, and that little voice in their head that says, “Give up on that.  Be realistic.”  Give them strengths, weaknesses, and a couple of bad habits, for kicks.
  • A variety of supporting characters.  You don’t have to have thirty characters + six secret characters stuffed under your trench coat; but with however many characters you have, make them as different from each other as possible.  Give them some similarities, of course, so that they can relate to each other – but never make them so close together that you have to decide, “Who should say this line?  Character A or Character B?”  Make them unique enough that the words come out of their mouths, instead of you having to decide where to put the words, yourself.
  • Relationships, relationships, relationships.  And I’m not talking about romantic relationships.  I mean, sure, those too – but there are many different kinds of relationships to explore.  Friendships, enemy-ships (?), parent relationships, sibling-ships, silent alliances, “annoying friend-of-a-friend”-ships, “my-ex’s-little-sister”-ships, “you’re-the-ruler-of-the-galaxy-and-a-Sith-lord-but-also-my-dad-please-stop-being-evil”-ships…  You get the idea.  Make them unique, make them strong, and allow them to evolve over the course of the story.
  • Diverse morals, interests, and personalities.  My first short stories focused on white middle-class people who were culturally and politically identical.  They lived in one house, usually, and watched the same TV shows and made the same references.  They had the same sense of humor.  They rarely disagreed on anything that wasn’t clear-cut (e.g. “You drank the last Pepsi!”  “I was thirsty!”).  So do yourself a favor and don’t make my mistakes.  Give your characters unique ethics, cultures, backgrounds, personalities, goals, appearances, and conflicts.  You’ll be more invested by then, I’m sure.

3. Setting

Lastly, I’d like to add that while your characters and plot could be well-developed, there’s always a chance that they’re placed in the wrong setting.  This is why many story ideas can seem great, but won’t get off the ground – maybe they’re set in a pre-made universe like Middle Earth or Panem when they could be their own story.  Maybe your tragic romance is set in the middle of apocalyptic war, when instead, it should be drained down to a period piece.  Maybe your story is perfect, except you’re writing it too close to home – in the real world, in the present year.  There are a million factors to picking the right setting, including:

  • Applicable history and culture.  If you’re writing a story about someone who’s oppressed, or someone who’s a politician, or someone who’s a witch, you’re going to need to back that up with history.  Develop a history for the oppression or politics or witchcraft – where these things began, how they developed over time – and a culture for them now – how oppressed people survive and how witches in your world interact, etc.
  • Imaginative scenery, influenced by the characters.  Even if your story takes place in New York City in 2017, allow your characters’ living spaces and workplaces to have a unique touch – colors and quirks that your readers can see in their mind.  If even you can’t see what you’re writing, inspiration is going to be difficult to find.
  • A lifelike background.  Just because the plot focuses on your characters does not mean everything going on behind it should be quiet and dead.  Anyone who looks out a window in a city building can see other people living – people on the highway will see other cars taking other people other places.  Everyone who has a friend will hear a little something about their friend’s siblings, their friend’s friends, their friend’s neighbors.  Life and stories exist outside of your plot; make sure you’re not writing about a ship in a bottle.
  • An aesthetic.  That sounds gross and teen-tumblr-y, but let me tell you personally: I don’t feel truly ready to write (and love) my story until I can hear the music for the future movie adaptation – until I can see the kind of clothes the people wear, the games they play, the places they eat and shop.  I think of the colors and themes in my scenes (e.g. my first novel was set primarily at night in a grunge/city setting; my current novel is very green and outdoorsy and gives me that feeling of bonfires just after sunset).  Once you get that “feeling” from your story, you’ll know it.

Anyway, this reply took me like three days to write because I really wanted to get into it.  I hope some of this helps you to fall in love with one of your ideas, so you can get started :)  If you have any more questions, be sure to send them in!

(I have 26 questions in the inbox, though, so be patient with me…)
