make me famous!

personal understanding of the signs
  • aries: little bitch who's always pissed off
  • taurus: can go from big cuddly teddy bear to el fuckass within minutes
  • gemini: the absolute worst and best at the same time. the funniest, make sure to love them
  • cancer: they are a big ball of confidence until u make one (1) relatively negative comment about em, then it's all tears and drama
  • leo: really outgoing and sweet. playful cuddlers, but probably has a secret evil side
  • virgo: the most sophisticated of the signs. despite this, they REALLY know how to party
  • libra: suspicious. very unpredictable and spontaneous, you never know what they're up to
  • scorpio: ice. fucking. cold. they're really fun when you're on good terms with them, but get on their bad side and they will ruin you.. tbh they're the baddest bitches out there
  • sagittarius: really chill. can easily be anyone's best friend. can throw a kickass party when the time comes
  • capricorn: they're uh.. strange, to say the least. they got some odd characteristics and even weirder secrets. but overall, really funny people
  • aquarius: the softest. really sweet, everyone loves them. i can barely believe it when i hear that an aquarius did something wrong.
  • pisces: they're almost as two-faced as geminis, but i think that's pretty useful. for the most part, they're fun to be around
So You Want To Write Fanfic

here are 10 quick tips for making that good fic, or at least making your fic look good

  1. Tag and Bag: if your fanfic needs tags make them good, make them accurate, and don’t talk in them. You want to make it as easy as possible to attract readers. Tags on fanfic are for sorting not communicating, and you have an entire fic’s worth of author’s notes for that
  2. Bait, Hook, and Reel: your summary and title is what sells a reader after they’ve finished tag sorting. The part of the spear that you sharpen is the tip the rest just has to hold together long enough to follow through
  3. Apologize for NOTHING: all creators are self-conscious, we all feel shades of anxiety and embarrassment about our work. But if you don’t think your work is good why should anyone else read it? Everyone starts somewhere
  4. Bad Epithet, No Biscuit: kill this idea. Whether calling a boy with dark hair “the raven” or a character’s blue eyes ‘cerulean orbs’ don’t. Just don’t. Use names and pronouns because they are easier for readers to follow
  5. An Ounce of Prevention: DO SOME RESEARCH! Every time you get something wrong in your story you lose at least one reader who knows better. You don't need to be an expert, you just need to know enough to bluff your way through
  6. Grammar U: grammar is about communication; where you put your comma to splice your run-on sentence is not nearly as important as framing dialogue correctly. It’s a readability issue. Grammar serves you and the reader not the other way around
  7. Cliché This: know 'em, avoid 'em or spin 'em around until they’re flipped and fresh. Check TVtropes for specifics on your fandom
  8. A Chuckle Darkly: think about the phrases you write. Does it make sense or just sound cool? It’s not a zero-sum game, but making sense is always the more important thing
  9. Floridly Prosaic Mosaics of Prose: writing prettily is not a substitute for story. It’s easy to write florid prose you can tell by how everyone does it. But only a few do it well enough to merit the distraction from reading a story
  10. Pay It Forward: you like good fic? You want more good fic? Then be a good e-citizen; leave kudos and comments, be constructive, contribute meaningfully and critically to your fandom, and above all have fun! Also you should probably reblog this
