PLAYING WITH FIRE: a Gryffindor playlist 

The Gryffindor house emphasizes the traits of courage as well as “daring, nerve, and chivalry,” and thus its members are generally regarded as brave, though sometimes to the point of recklessness.

Creating plots for your story

You feel like nothing is happening in your story. It’s lukewarm and dull. You are getting bored, the characters are getting bored, you have no idea what to do next… or even if you should rewrite the whole thing.

If so, this post will help you find new plots and subplots for your story.

Originally posted by find-a-reaction-gif

The secret of finding plot is exploring possibilities. Most of the time, we settle for the first thing that comes to mind. Creating is not easy, it’s time and energy consuming, so we avoid it the most.

But there’s a shortcut… and that is: Listing.

Making lists is great way to discover ideas and find new paths for your story. Plus, it’s quite fun. Let’s start with a few basic lists.

- Create a list of dreams your main character could have

- Create a list of bad things that could happen to your main character

- Create a list of special physical features for your main character

- Create a list of places your main character could live in

Now, let’s jump into more detailed lists.

- Create a list of places within your fictional world

- Create a list of dreams for your antagonist

- Create a list of objects relevant to the story

- Create a list of realistic situations within your fictional world

- Create a list of feelings related to the story

- Create a list of  psychological issues your main character could go through

- Create a list of fears your main character could have

- Create a list of childhood memories for your main character

You can create your own list prompts as well. And also apply them to specific genres. For example, romance.

- Create a list of places for a first kiss

- Create a list of bad things that could set them apart

- Create a list of dynamics

- Create a list of common goals

Once your lists are done, go back, read them all over again. 90% will be rejected, but 10% will shine in your eyes with fresh plot opportunities. Pick the most interesting items and create plots around them. These lists will also get you closer to the characters and the fictional world.

Fake Dating/Married Au List
  • My siblings already had kids and they’re already out of the ‘baby stage’ so they keep asking me when I’m going to have one and I don’t really want one but you’re my friend who really wants a baby but needs to be married in order for the adoption papers to be seriously considered. Let’s get together to satisfy both our needs. Who knows, it might not even be that bad.
  • If I’m married I can bulk out my Fafsa form and you need it bulked out too if you don’t want to take out crazy amounts of loans. So we can get married and once we get our degrees we can get divorced like friends.
  • Just date me for the Valentines Day discount. 
  • I need someone to take with me to my parent’s Thankgiving/New Years/Full Moon celebration because otherwise I’m stuck doing the kids crafts/at the kids table/being asked when I’m going to date. 
  • I brought you as my friend but my parents read our closeness as dating and only gave us one bed to share.
  • I had a bad week and I can’t decide what kind of cake I want so I want to do the wedding cake samples at the cake store but I need to do it with someone. Quick- Do you like cake and can you hold my hand?
