okay so this is my attempt

anonymous asked:

How do you even write your dialogues like oh my god they are so witty and in character and fun PLEASE TEACH ME (im kidding ofc well 50% joking but if you have some good advices I would be happy to hear them)

Treat every line as an opportunity for a one-liner or the setup of one. 

Okay I will attempt to offer advice but I make no promises on the usefulness, usability or sense-making of any of this. 

Background: for my first degree I majored in Film, Television and Media Studies and minored in Linguistics. I like words. This actually has nothing to do with anything I’m going to tell you except that I know how to bullshit so keep that in mind when reading this advice. 

  • Play it out in your head (if you can). This may be harder to do depending on how you think. If you can’t do it in your head then do it ‘on paper’ but skip all the framing bits like dialogue tags, character names, any kind of description. The only thing that matters is the dialogue. You’ll get better at making voices more distinct and carrying out banter. I like to do this when I’m stuck in traffic.
  • Practice writing banter or arguments rather than exposition because they’re easier to get into a rhythm with and sometimes carry themselves easily in a direction you’re not expecting but ends up awesome.
  • Write in screenplay or script format for practice. If the entire thing hinges on dialogue you pay a lot more attention to it. If this format is something you hate go back to the first bullet point and do more of that instead.
  • Watch tv shows and movies and pay attention to how people speak instead of what they say. I say shows and movies instead of real life (you can do that too though) because they already have the unnecessary fluff we use in everyday life taken out. You don’t want your characters to talk like ‘real’ people, that would get boring. Cut the fluff. 
  • Study the characters you’re writing and the way they speak. By study I mean read or listen and let your brain do the work while you have fun being entertained. This is the bit that happens to me naturally sorry it’s very ??? in my head. Go back to the first bullet point and do this again for the character.
  • If you have more than two characters in a conversation treat it like they have to take turns. Character A & Character B go back and forth, Character C says something, Character B replies and those two talk and A stays out of it. Juggling lots of characters in a conversation is hard, man. I still have trouble. 
  • Similarly, once you’re at the point that you’re actually writing a scene rather than just witty banter/arguments for the lols, be aware of what your characters are doing and how long the dialogue is dragging out. It can be tempting to keep the dialogue going forever with the witty banter and end up with a ‘talking room’ where characters sit around doing nothing except snipe at each other but it doesn’t really help you move a plot.
  • I have 700 words of batkids sitting around a table sniping at each other about DnD I know this from experience okay. 
  • If you get stuck mid-dialogue but know what comes a few lines later type ‘dkjlfjdlkd’ and move on. You can go back later and figure it out, don’t stop the train. We’re dialogue sharks, we stop swimming we die. 
  • Who cares if it’s in character, write it down, your brain said so. Check it later. That’s what editing is for. You’ll eventually get character voices down and find out your brain is often right about these things. Or justify it for the lols. One of the two. 
  • Dialogue tags and framing dialogue can take a while to get right. Study other people’s writing that you like and see how they do it. No tags just action >= invisible tags like said or asked > he verbed words. Use replacements for said sparingly and try to think about whether they’re physically possible or not. Laughing a word? Not so much. 
  • Show don’t tell works for dialogue too. 
  • ‘Do I really need this comma here?’ Yes. Put it in, move on. You can take it out later if it trips you up on re-reads or when you say it out loud. Also, coming back a few hours/days later for editing helps with flow and ‘can this character actually speak this long without pausing’ type decisions.
  • Disregard everything I just said and do what works for you. 

i am really not okay with lucas attempting to kill dorothy because of his own inner turmoil

like, you figure your shit out on your own dude, you do not kill people because they made you feel different and you want to go back to the way you were before

and idk these last few episodes have feel weirdly paced and i’m feeling a disconnect watching them be so emotional onscreen while i could care less

i guess my love for this ship has very very very quickly burned out

another fake dating trope ficlet

based off of: ·        

 ‘i didn’t want to tell my friend who my real date last night was so i just pointed at a random stranger (you) but now they’re storming over to interrogate you and you’re playing along??? okay’ au 


Phichit sat in a café waiting for his best friend, a latte already in hand. Various skating magazines talked of his best friend, Yuuri Katsuki, going on a date the night prior after so many years of not even attempting to date anyone.

Naturally, this came as a surprise to Phichit because his best friend neglected to tell him such a detail. He decided a meet-up was in order nonetheless; he felt like he couldn’t fully express what he wanted through the phone.

The man in question arrived almost an hour later, looking like he had woken up less than 15 minutes ago and as if he had rushed over to the café. He apologized profusely before ordering and sitting down across his best friend.

Yuuri fidgeted with the sleeves of his sweater while Phichit barraged him with questions about his date the night prior. His answers were few and far between, not to mention quite vague. In truth the date was merely a disaster and he’d rather not relive it.

“Will you at least tell me who it was?” Phichit demanded.

Yuuri panicked and looked around the café. He pointed at a random stranger in the hopes that it would end there. Of course, it did not end there.

Phichit thought it was a good idea to call the person over. He didn’t get enough information out of his best friend to get a concrete idea on what had happened, so he thought this man was the next best thing.

Yuuri crossed his fingers and hoped whoever it was would brush the whole thing off. Fate decided otherwise because the man he had pointed to was none other than Viktor Nikiforov, his long-time crush. Phichit could barely contain himself at the revelation and Yuuri wished the earth would devour him on the spot.

“So you and Yuuri got together last night!! That’s so exciting!! What did you do? Yuuri won’t tell me a damn thing!” he exclaimed, practically bouncing in his seat.

Viktor, the little shit, not only walked over but played along. He pulled up a chair and winked at Yuuri, who was sure he was on fire given how hot his face felt at the moment.

“I picked him up from his place, we had a stroll in the park with Makkachin then had a lovely dinner. He was incredibly gentleman-like through it all. I’m very lucky,” he said, making things up as he went. He added details as Phichit inquired and hoped for the best.

After Phichit bade them goodnight (with a wink and nudge at Viktor), Yuuri finally found the courage to speak up.

“Th-Thank you for playing along but you really didn’t have to,” he said, still red from the ordeal and unable to meet the other’s eyes.

Viktor laughed, a gorgeous melodic laugh that Yuuri was quite sure came from an angel, not a human. He wouldn’t put it past Viktor to be an angel, though. He had the looks, the skills, the charm…

“It was of no trouble Yuuri. Maybe we could make the scenario a reality?” he suggested. Yuuri’s blush deepened—although he didn’t know that was even humanly possible at this point.

“Do you still have my number?” Viktor asked, a gentle but playful smile on his face.

Yuuri looked up, brows drawn together. “You’ve never given me your number Viktor,” he said softly.

Viktor was equally confused now. “Yes you do! I wrote it on your arm at the night of the banquet!” he protested.

Yuuri’s eyes widened, remembering how he woke up the morning after said event slightly disoriented and very hungover. He had washed the number off without a second thought, and to think it was Viktor’s number! He groaned and hid his face in his hands.

Viktor chuckled. “It’s okay Yuuri. But since you lost my number, can I have yours?”

“Your chirps can’t reach me up here, Jack.”

There’s a Culinary Arts museum in Providence and you can’t convince me that these dorks would not have a date there

and she’ll burst—
like a sun-kissed wave crashing against the shore; like a monochrome painting tearing at the seams
and she’ll bloom—
like a heart-shaped moon against a pitch-black sky; like pure sunlight seeping into your skin
and she’ll fade—
like a bird trapped in a blizzard, like a young star dying for the sake of the universe

she will—

when the clouds of men pull their dark cloaks over her starlit eyes.

1 - Stop everything, girl Yoongi, my life has meaning

2 - First attempt to conquer Miss Yoongi failed miserably (but managed to conquer my heart)

3 - Imagine TaeTae telling you this, oh my heart

But the second attempt also failed (I do not know which girl resisted Tae being cute, but okay)

4 - Jungkook gives the coat to Yoongi, Yoongi throws the floor
(Yoongi might even be a girl now, but the personality is the same as ever, savage)

Yoongi is a girl 2 minutes and already understands all the armys of the world.
All the armys of the world at the moment: strip, strip, strip

But we know this will not happen so soon #disappointed
Jeon Jungkook stop playing with us
(I do not want your shoes, I want to see you shirtless)

5 - As JK failed too, it was Hope’s turn and … Oscar goes to Jung Hoseok * cheers *
Man, what a beautiful act, I’m even crying (from so much laughing)

6 - J-Hope failed, so it was our Prince Jin’s turn, and I really do not know what happened because I had to get my earphones out as fast as I could, but unfortunately it was too late, R.I.P my ears
* I am Yoongi as I tried to take the headset off

7 - Yoongi dancing TT. I’m even seeing Yoongi regretting it in the future.
(I’m now wondering what Nam found out there that was more interesting than Suga dancing TT)

You must be wondering, “What about Jimin? He did not try to conquer Yoongi?” And I reply to you that he does not need it because Yoonmin is real…

or maybe not.

Run, Jimin, run (Now the name of the program makes sense)

I love the fact that Yoongi just said he has a gun and Jimin stays there, stopped with that extremely charming smile on his face. (Jimin = angel)

Super important remark: I think Suga really loved this hair

Poke Out His Eyes

Context: 5e My players were nearing the end of a long warehouse fight against multiple enemies to attempt bring in a bounty alive. Several of our players have nearly died, they’ve whittled their opponents down and our Cleric does the following.)

Cleric: I would like to raise my shield of Kord up to him like I’m going to attack him, and then quickly lower my shield and poke him in the eyeballs, and I’m going to cast Light.

DM(me): (trying not to laugh) Okay, roll Dex to see if you succeed.

Cleric: Natural 20

(entire room erupts)

DM: So, you raise your shield and he turns to you and very quickly you drop it, striking out and poking him in the eyeballs as you cast light. He is now blind and has light coming from his eyes.

(I laugh so much we had to take a 10 minute break, and then our Cleric reminded me, as the DM, that Light lasts for 1 hour.)

Amidst all the bullshit about Rowan being abusive, I think people sometimes forget that it can be…you know, nice for your partner to be protective and a lil jealous. Personally, I like it when the people I’m dating want to protect me. Obviously this protectiveness can’t inhibit my daily life and my ability to make choices. But I’ve had partners who pulled me out of the way of oncoming traffic. Who texted to make sure I got home safe. Who had me walk on the inside of the road so if a car hit us they would be hurt and I would be okay. Rowan’s protectiveness of Aelin has always seemed to be in a similar vein: he just cares about her safety. I don’t find that abusive in the least. Also, lets keep in mind that he never attempts to take away Aelin’s choices. He listens when she has him go save Dorian in EoS. He listens to her when she goes to Adarlan without him in QoS. In both cases, he knows aelin is in more danger without him there, but he doesn’t violate her will power or take away her ability to choose. He just…lets her be Aelin. 

And now onto his jealousy of other fae: again, I’ll make it personal. I’m a pretty jealous person. I like it when my partner feels similarly jealous. Too much jealousy can certainly destroy a relationship, but thats not what we see in EoS. We dont see Rowan ever suspecting Aelin of wanting other males. We merely see him get a bit antsy about other fae checking her out or looking at her. It’s a bit overdone in my opinion, but I get the sense that it’s reciprocal. 

Aelin feels similarly protective and jealous of Rowan. We definitely have evidence that she is protective of him when it comes to Maeve (she has him released from the blood oath). And can anyone imagine Aelin being happy if another fae hit on Rowan? Yeah, she’d be pissed. But she would never suspect Rowan of cheating on her or anything. 

The jealousy that exists in Rowaelin isn’t the type of jealousy that in my experience harms relationships. It’s just a bit of “hey we just mated and i love you and I would die for you and i dont like the way that strange man is looking at you.” There’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, for someone like Aelin, who has essentially never had anyone who knew her 100% and wanted to be with her forever, this protectiveness might feel good. It shows that rowan cares for her. And this is the girl who lost her family, lost her home, was abused by her care giver, lost her first love and best friend, was enslaved for a year, lost her other best friend, was rejected by her second love interest, and was convinced she was worthless. She has never had anyone stand by her and protect her. Aelin has been the only person Aelin can rely on since she was 8. So imagine how wonderful it feels to her to have Rowan, her mate, who has pledged his life to her, stand up for her and protect her. 

Finally, if Aelin and rowan truly had an abusive or unhealthy relationship, there’s no way that Rowan would be okay with Sam. He goes with Aelin to Sam’s grave!!! He is very respectful of Sam’s memory and she shares this with him and he takes care to be kind and thoughtful towards her about it. She trusts him enough that he is the only person she brings with her to Sam’s grave. The first time she ever visits it. And Aelin, similarly, isn’t pissed about Lyria. She figures out that her and rowan are true mates, yet out of respect for his past with Lyria, she doesn’t say anything. Inside she is likely screaming with joy, but she doesn’t say anything because she doesn’t want to pressure him.

So y’all, get it out of your head that Rowaelin is abusive. Yes they are jealous and protective of one another. But this works for them, neither has an issue with it, and it isn’t done in an unhealthy or abusive manner. In fact, they are 100% respectful of one another’s past relationships, something that is extremely healthy. Also, take into account why someone with Aelins history might want to feel protected and loved. 

This isn’t a TC blog buuuuuut, I figured I’d say something to maybe give you guys some hope.
I met my teacher when I was 15 and he was 31. Twice my age. We got too close and people started noticing we were always together. He never touched me, or flirted with me, or did any of that. He kept it professional and helped me through my issues.
Then he got fired for our friendship.
And he waited two and a half years for me to turn 18 so we could reconnect. He literally just wanted to make sure I was okay, because the last time we had actually talked, I was in the hospital for a suicide attempt.
So I got back in touch, I owe this man my life, he’s the reason I’m alive. And turns out he’s in love with me and just yesterday, on his 34th birthday, we made it official.
There’s hope for you guys. There was for me :)

life is a fist fight
and you’ve given the devil a gun.
