Synopsis: You are a new and upcoming superstar and during an interview, you get asked questions about the one and only Harry Styles.
“Okay so this is how the stage is going to be set up, your pianist will be here, drums, violin, guitar, everything. And on Wednesday, we can rehearse. Sound good?” The producer tells you while pointing, but you couldn’t really focus on anything. All you could hear or see were those comments people left under the interview.
“Yes, thank you so much!” Stacy says, still holding your hand. You and Stacy begin to walk off the stage to go talk to the other directors. “Hey Y/N!” You hear someone call your name and when you turn around, it’s the last person you want to see.
“It’s me Harry!” He smiles and all you can do is tear up.
— Lady books uber for her cousin and her kids.
— Driver messages the lady (who booked) thinking she’s the one who travelled in his car. Messages range from “I miss you” to “which city are you staying in”
— Lady who booked files a complaint with uber for unprofessionalism and shares on social media.
— Indian men call the lady a gold digger, a sociopath, a bitch for not blocking him and creating a huge social cry about it and “overreacting” because clearly the driver was just being friendly and was trying to flirt with her or woo her and she’s turning him down because he drives a taxi and not an Audi.
Again, THE LADY WAS TRAVELING IN THE CAR WITH HER TWO SONS AND DIDN’T NEED TO BE FUCKING WOOED.
Writing non-stereotypical, realistic character biographies for South Asian characters. I’ll be focusing on Indians, since that’s what I’m most familiar with, but I’ll touch on other South Asian peoples as well.
WHY YOU NEED THIS GUIDE:
I rarely see South Asian characters, and too often they are flat and stereotypical. They all speak Hindi, they’re all scientists and IT guys, and I see the same faceclaims used over and over representing a part of India they actually aren’t from.
WHAT MAKES ME QUALIFIED:
I’m Indian. I lived there until I was nine years old, and I’m fluent in two different Indian languages, which also happen to be the two most commonly spoken languages in the country. I’m well traveled there as well: I’ve been from the Southern most tip to the Northwest and Northeast as well.
WHAT YOU WILL FIND UNDER THE CUT:
Tips on naming the characters, on fleshing out their backstories, an overview of major historical events, stereotypes to avoid at all costs, and a list of faceclaims that I’d like to see more of in the roleplay world.
