only part of the filler i liked

Ok so, I'm gonna tell a few things about jjba's part 5 for anime only watchers

I’ll avoid spoilers and won’t be mentioning names. I’m just gonna write down some things about this part’s overall feel. Here we go…

- part 5 is dark. When i say that, its not that this jojo part is completely sad or edgy, but the story, context and situations that the characters have to face are not light hearted. It feels like the opposite of part 4 in that aspect.

- Also opposing part 4, part 5 is fast paced and extremely dynamic. There are no filler arcs. It is a heavily battle focused manga and most characters give their all in fights, risking their own lives all the way. There are no cowards in this part of jojo and all the characters oozes badassery and have “manly” moments.

- It has some of the most awesome stand battles and stand abbilities in the whole jojo franchise. And many of those battles happens on board of moving vehicles, which symbolizes the fast paced story arcs.

- none of the characters is moraly good or pure. Its not that the main crew is made of bad people, but people who won’t hesitate to do hideous things in order to achieve their goals.

- the word “resolve” and the criticism of the “ results are the only thing that matters ” are key ideas brought up in this part. Also they bring the concept that nobody is able to overcome their fate or choose their own origin, but everyone has the ability to use the time they have in this world to try and accomplish great things despite the horrifying and unavoidable destiny that awaits them in the end of the road.

- jojo part 5 has one of the best written main crew of characters in an rpg plotline of a shonen manga. Im not even kidding, they put the crusaders to shame. Speaking of stardust crusaders, vento aureo does everything sdc did but way better and in a more interesting way. The cast of villains feels deep and memorable and the main characters form a way more balanced team with better bonds, personality and backstories.

- the fights in this part are really extreme but its not only that what makes the stand fights in part 5 so memorable. Its the fact that, for the first time in jojo, both the villains and the main characters do not fear death and they wont hesitate to kill the enemy. Also, some of the most dangerous fights in this jojo part are solved with double battles, being the duo made of the main crew, the villains or both at the same time with an example of a four way battle at one point of the series.

- its in this part that araki goes full fabulous with both the characters design and their fashion. He wanted to make the characters the most androgenous and bishounen-ish possible to convey what was popular among manga readers back in the days of vento aureo’s publication. The feminine designs of the main characters form an interesting contrast with how brutal they actually are. So the characters for this part are mostly androgenous and have no chill. Also the homoerotic jokes and scenes you missed since sdc? They are back here but in contexts you would never expect.

- shit hits the fan pretty quickly in vento aureo and each arc is well tied up with the arcs before and after it. It will make vento aureo a difficult part to adapt for anime and its gonna be challenging for david production to set the pacing for the main story just right.

- araki wrote this part of jojo during a hard time of his personal life, so the dark and sad aspects of this story arc reflects his state of mind during those days. But araki revealed, years after completing this part, that he decided to write off a good chunk of the story he had planned because he couldnt get himself to draw such heavy handed scenes. He decided that he wouldnt let the characters go through all the pain he first planned to do and felt that those characters helped him overcome his emotionally broken state of mind back then.

- overall, this jojo part is really great. Dont listen to people who sounds unexcited about it and claims that part 5 is the worst one. Vento aureo is the jojo part that has suffered the most thanks to bad scans and translation. The fact that there’s still no complete well translated version of this jojo part around the web doesnt help people who read it for the first time without proper guidance. Most of the mixed opinions on part 5 comes due to bad unnoficial translations, which made this part of jojo seen as underated or even controversial by the western fandom. Vento aureo is the second most popular and beloved jojo part in japan, only second to the ever hyped stardust crusaders. If we westerns have had the experience of reading this part well translated from the begining, it would be one of the most popular among the non asian fandom as well.

- if you are an anime only watcher and will wait for a vento aureo anime to come out so you can watch it blind, i recommend that you keep in mind that this part is a wild ride. If part 4 felt like a pleasant picinic at a park, part 5 feels like a roller coaster of death. Keep that in mind and take a deep breath before starting when the anime comes out.

And now im out. Bye~

This season has lost the plot.  Literally.  I have no idea what the over-arching plot of this season is anymore beyond ‘leave Kara so isolated and alone that she ends up with fuck-boy’

What’s going on with CADMUS?  What’s the most recent update on Jeremiah?  What impact did the Alien Amnesty Act have?  What’s up with Shady Alien Wonder Woman President?

I get that not every episode will have a major part in the plot, but it’s kinda starting to feel like filler episode after filler episode, with only romantic plots and Guardian connecting them.

And that is not what I started watching for.

Part 10 - Part 11 - Part 12 - Part 13 - Part 14 - Part 15

You saw the color drain from Yugyeom’s face before you turned around, beginning to walk back towards the door that led to the stage. Your heart broke into pieces inside of your chest, each piece stabbing you from the inside out.

“(Y/N),” You heard Yugyeom call your name softly, but before he could say another word, you were out the stage door, slamming it behind you.

You knew that your instructor was right; that all the girls fawned over Yugyeom and wanted to date him, but you never thought anyone would attempt to kiss him. Maybe it wasn’t expecting anyone to kiss him— maybe you didn’t expect him to let them kiss him.

Safe - Part 6 - Negan x Reader

warnings: Alpha!Negan x Omega!Reader (there’s no way to avoid this as of this chapter, so if you don’t like it please don’t continue the fic), language, jealousy

sorry that this is just a filler but i promise… things are about to speed up. x

[safe masterlist]

The way Negan decided to make it up to you was giving you a job in the gardens. It was only for a few hours a day, and you were heavily guarded, but it was still an amazing olive branch. You still hadn’t completely forgiven Negan for the whole situation, but you were working toward it together. Negan made it clear to you that he wanted to make it up to you, and that he wanted to work past this, and that was a good start. You just didn’t know how easily you could move on from the fact that Negan has five wives.

One Sided//Cole Sprouse (part two)

Prompt: Hi can you write something about Cole like mangers let the reader & cole date only for fame and the reader would fall in love with Cole and do everything to impress him but he doesn’t love her back ., but then he’ll love her 😂😂 it’s complicated ik but you’re amazing and you can work it out haha

Words: 445

Warnings: none

A/n: this one is kind of short, but it’s more of a filler. A lot more shit is going down next part, I promise lmao

After the red carpet event, news of you and Cole’s ‘relationship’ was all over the Internet, to no surprise.

Also to your surprise, you were receiving more support than hate. It turns out that because of your characters on the show, the fans really did want you to be together IRL. Stupid producers.

However, you were still receiving hate. Even though it wasn’t a real relationship, it still hurt.

And even you worse, you’re beginning to think that you might feel something for Cole. Although, it might just be the placebo effect of a fake relationship. Who knows.

You and Cole were currently hanging out in your dressing room, as you both decided it would be better to actually get to know each other if you’re going to be ‘dating’ for six months.

“You are absolutely disgusting,” you stick your tongue out and make fake gagging noises.

“Listen, I can put whatever I want on my pizza. You will never stop me,” he rolls his eyes and you continue to fake gag.

You stop when you start laughing,“Okay, okay. What do you think about-”

Suddenly one of your produces busts into your room,“Guys, be ready in five.”

“We’ve been sitting here in dress for like, ever,” you say to the producer.

“Oh. Well, come out so we can shoot this scene. There’s only one between your characters on the show for today,” he smiles and then leaves your room.

Cole looks over at you with a confused glance,“Only one scene? That’s not what the script said.”

You feel your eyes widen,“Oh shit.” You get up, quick walking over to your desk,“they gave me another script yesterday, but I figured it was just a revised version of the original. I wonder why they didn’t tell me to look at it.”

“Let me see it,” Cole reaches his hand out, and you walk over and plop it into his open palm.

Cole opens up the script, flipping through the pages until he finds your one scene,“Well, I see why they didn’t tell us.”

“What is it?” You walk over to him, crossing your arms,“It can’t be that bad.”

“It’s honestly not, but we could’ve used some warning before we have an intimate scene like this,” he sighs.

“Intimate? What exactly is in the scene?”

“We just have to kiss, it’s not a big deal,” he places the script on the seat next to him,“Wanna practice now?” He smirks.

“Haha, funny, Sprouse.”

You feel as if you played it off, but your heart began pounding as soon as he said the word 'kiss’.

“Y/n, Cole, let’s go!”

Oh boy.

A/N: This is really just a filler but I wanted to post it! Gonna post a few more parts of this before I round it up. Hope you guys like her true form!

(Idk why I’m pointing this out, but I know the GIF isn’t 100% suitable for this part but it’s 100% super cool so I’m using it)

She opened her eyes slowly, gaze landing on the soft clouds of crystallized rain that caught the purple light of a potassium salt infused comet passing by. Her body was weightless, her every move slow and graceful. She reveled in the peacefulness of the moment. She focused the very core of her strength on soaking in the energy that flowed around her, to recharge in a far more spiritual and voluntary way than a necessary one. Just like those of earth meditate to calming music to find tranquility, she did the same, but let her mind leave her body and seek solitude in the Galaxy.

“Hello?” Her turquoise glowing eyes reopened in her present state of being, seeing Scott wave his hand in front of her with Tony cautiously standing a few feet behind him in the room she had kindly been given.

“Hello.” She repeated, still in her meditating position with her legs crossed and hands resting on her knees. She was levitating in the middle of the room and was at eye height with Scott despite being in a sitting posture.

Scott smiled tightly and cleared his throat as he became more awkward for each second of silence that passed. “So? What you up to?”

“Meditating.” She answered and without her head ever moving, she unfolded her legs and placed her feet down on the floor, eyes reverting to the natural color of her human form.

“That didn’t seem like normal meditation to me.” Tony admitted, looking her up and down like he was waiting for something to happen. “I mean, you always see people floating around in movies when they meditate, but not in real.”

“You’ve seen a lot of things that should have been part of a movie and not reality though, haven’t you?” She questioned with a slight smile, making Tony do the same as he realized it was very true.

“I usually project my body when I meditate.” She began to explain. “I find it easier to achieve complete harmony within places that your building does not suffice. I mean nothing personal, of course.”

“Project your body? Project it to where?” Scott lowered his eyebrows over his widely opened eyes.

“This time? To the outer reaches of what you on earth has named Messier 82.”

Tony blinked a few times. He had only followed Scott down to get Y/N and bring her up to the lounge where the rest where. He hadn’t expected to have his mind completely blown by information of the bizarre fashion that it tended to be around Y/N.

“You were in a galaxy that is roughly twelve million light years away?” He asked but raised his both hands up after. “You know what? I don’t want to know. We just came here to get you. The others are waiting upstairs and we all have some questions-”

Tony’s voice faded out as a vague mist of yellow erupted in the air and they stood in the lounge with the others before he even realized. He thought it would have been easier to process as she had teleported them from Russia to New York the day before, but it wasn’t.

“Alright then…” He said calmly and walked over to the couches for a seat, feeling almost nauseous.

“I was just going to say that it took a while for you to get here.” Steve confessed, standing behind the sofa which Peter and Natasha shared.

“Yeah, well she was meditating twelve million light years away, so…” Scott sought out a free seat and sat down beside Thor with a thud, feeling a little sick himself.

No one on the team was planning on asking more about the matter. They already had a dozens questions for her and they had to settle at some point, at least for that moment.

“You had questions?” She wondered, looking in between everyone. “I’ll be more than happy to answer them as a token of my appreciation for being allowed to stay here through the night.”

“We’ve just never met anyone so… Complex, before. It would be nice if we could just get a handful of answers.” Bruce said in a careful voice, afraid that she would misunderstand him in some way.

“Of course.”

“I want to know about your true form.” Thor spoke up, recalling the little she had explained when they were still in Russia. “You said you adapted it to Earth?”

She nodded. “I do. Like I said yesterday, it is a lot more difficult to blend in with society as myself. Whenever I visit earth I take on the form as Y/N.”

“What’s your real name?” Rhodes became curious.

She smiled, looking down at the floor for a moment before glancing back up. “As a matter of fact, I was never given a name. I was orphaned at a young age and taken to the temple where I was trained to protect the universe. There I was simply called Apprentice when I was still young and Master after my training was complete.”

“What’s your true form then?” Clint steered back to Thor’s question. “Maybe it’s personal, I don’t know, but I don’t know how I feel about seeing a girl like you and knowing there’s someone completely else under the surface…”

It was a reasonable point. She understood Clint completely and could tell the others shared his opinion. It would only be fair if she listened to their silent pleads and showed them who she was.

“Even though it may not look like me, or like Y/N, I still want you to remember that it’s only a matter of physical change.” She attempted to make them understand. “It is still me in the sense of mind and spirit.”

“Yeah? Bruce-y overs here doesn’t really seem like his usual self when the Hulk comes out.” Tony nudged his head at Bruce who in his turn remained silent.

“There is a lot more that changes with Dr. Banner than there is with me-” The room lit up brightly in yellow to the point where it was blinding before dimming down. “-I assure you.”

The team stared without remorse at the alien being suddenly standing in front of them.

Her skin was soft blue and gray, freckle like spots of shimmering silver subtly reaching down the top of her arms and across the bridge of her nose and cheeks. From out of her ribs and underneath her arms came two more limbs, all of her four hands having four fingers instead of five. Her eyes were pitch black and would have seemed like two holes hadn’t they reflected her surroundings in their glossed surface. Her hair had become the same color as her skin only a few shades darker and grown to reach her hips. She had grown almost two heads in height as well, surpassing everyone in the room.

She was dressed in the same clothing she had arrived in during the mission in Russia. The platinum bracers which had multiplied in number, her black suit and hooded mantel, but the blue detailing on her suit had vanished. There were only vague outlines of them visible but they were also black and barely detectable. Those who noticed they were missing tried to ignore it considering how there was so many more bizarre things to focus on.

“I-” Bucky was surprisingly going to say something, but the words left him. He could see the familiar facial features between Y/N and her true form and it rendered him utterly speechless. That someone could appear so human by a mere illusion and hide such an extremely different reality was equally as astonishing as it was eye-opening. Even after she had teleported fourteen people along with an entire aircraft for hundreds upon hundreds of miles and all of the other supernatural things she had shown and done, she clearly had more up her sleeve, and Bucky doubted that showing her true self was even close to the final thing of what she could do. Like she had said; alternating reality, that is truly a field where the possibilities are endless.

“I am the offspring of two, extraterrestrial, races. Think of the acceptance of interracial mating on Earth and then picture the furthest thing away from that as your minds allow… That’s how interracial mating is seen where I’m from. The majority of the universe, actually. My parents were hunted and killed for just that. I would also have been killed had it not been for the Temple saving me.”

“I’m sorry.” Wanda suddenly whimpered as a tear fell from her reddened eyes, surprising everyone. They all felt pity for Y/N, but Wanda had been the only one who had seen it. She had seen the murder of Y/N’s mother and father as clear as day from the angle of a crib and through the eyes of Y/N as a mere infant, something not even Y/N remembered herself. Wanda had been able to see before that and seen the love her parents had for their daughter. She could even feel the love in herself. The horror in her parents when their murderers came took over Wanda’s own emotions, making her cry involuntarily from their powerful impact.

“Are you okay?” Steve looked over at Wanda whose hands were shaking, eyes staring emptily at Y/N with tears silently running down from them.

“You see it, don’t you?” Y/N asked despite already knowing that Wanda could.

Yes.” Wanda let out a sharp exhale. “I am so sorry.”

“I was too young to know my parents, to even have a memory of them. Even if I appreciate your pity I find it difficult to mourn the loss of two people that might as well have never existed if I wasn’t alive to prove otherwise.” Y/N smiled subtly, hoping it would reassure Wanda and the rest that she was alright.

“They loved you… I think you deserve to know that.” Wanda emitted, realizing what a mess she was as another tear fell and hastily beginning to wipe them away.

Y/N smiled even wider. Even if she did not remember her parents her self, it was nice to know they had loved her nonetheless. “Thank you.”

You hazily opened your eyes as you felt all around your body for your phone. Tucked securely in your back pocket, you pulled it out and checked the clock. 5:35 AM. Where were you, you thought to yourself. You let your eyes adjust to the completely dark room remembering nothing from the party only hours earlier. You heard a ruffle in the bed next to you. Jungkook. You quietly cursed under your breath praying to any God who would listen that you didn’t fuck him when you were drunk. Jungkook groggily pushed the sheets back and raised his arms above his hand to stretch, slowly opening his eyes as he did so.

The walk back from the diner was silent. You would look over at him momentarily, watching the dim lights from the lamp-post reflect against his skin, before looking away. You didn’t know exactly what to say to him, or how to react, or what to do. You wanted to ask him about the competition, about what would happen next, but the words never seem to leave your mind.

You both arrive at the apartment complex, stopping momentarily in front of the door to face each other before going in. You looked at the ground, in wonder of what to say, before you felt something warm against your shoulders.

Okay but lately I’ve been thinking…

Is A.D. having such personal interactions and playing with Aria only because they can (taking into consideration her file) or there’s actually more to that? Many Aria is A theorists believed that she might be involved because she was the least targeted from the liars. But we’ve seen how capable she is in 7x16 and how it hurts her and besides, the girls’ friendship is one of the greatest value of the show and at this point it’s rather obvious the producers wouldn’t go as far as to try to destroy that (well, I think they wouldn’t). But there has always been something shady about Aria and we all know it all has started when she came back… There’s also the fact that the ending is supposed to make us and the liars feel betrayed and it could only happen if the girls actually had a close relationship with A.D. So it’s only a theory but somehow it all leads to Ezra (more under the cut):

 May’s voice caught in her throat and she stumbled backwards, toppling to the cold glossed floor. Travis was by her side in a instant, helping her back to her feet with a surprisingly tender touch. Slowly, May pulled out of his grasp and he smiled at her.

 “I missed you, babe.” Travis grinned. He reached out and took her hands in his. “I’m sorry it took me so long to get to you. There have been…complications to our situation. I’m afraid it’s just you and I, now.”

 But Bucky was just here. Wasn’t he? May shook her head. No, no doubt. He was here, he came back for her.  She didn’t have proof but, she just knew. “But- I thought-”

 “The Good Doctor did what he could, for you.” Travis continued. “Unfortunately we weren’t able to rid you of the burden of your past. But with time,” He stepped closer and placed his hands at her elbows, letting his thumbs rub back and forth on her chilled skin. “And the proper attention, You can be perfect.”

anonymous asked:

True that. and I like your points too. I also agree that SP shoves NH and Hinata in everyone's faces while downplaying other pairs like SS. Who i really feel bad for is Choji. Not even SP wanted to explore Choji x Kurai. Tenten too. So just curious- if not SP then what studio would you have liked to see handling the series? and ugh i fee llike Sp changes hinatas hair color/features too much and give her screentime too much attention like with the wedding

right? they don’t just stop at the drastic alterations in plot matter, personality or appearance… they literally change every subtle detail that they can possibly touch or even vaguely improve upon too, like her hair colour or facial features.

honestly, i’m not sure which studio i’d prefer to handle naruto. i feel like the secure and “dependable” (i.e. financially stable) studios with the best audience reach, financial backing and merchandising capabilities all produce fillers to drag out the content and cash in on the series anyway… so escaping those episodes in any major/successful series is near damn impossible. but fillers aren’t necessarily an issue, if handled well. i mean, just look at atla and lok!
which actually makes me think:

s/p also (part) animate korra, and are infamous in that series too; scrutinised for doing their shitty job, especially in comparison to the korean studio, studio mir.

so studio mir definitely looks like an obvious choice in answer to your question, anon! but lok’s an american product, whereas naruto is japanese; so would most likely stay with a japanese studio, rather than send the task overseas like a lot of u.s. shows. but in terms of quality, s/m would be a great – but probably unlikely – shout! they also don’t seem to have any impartiality in depicting characters or taking creative control away from the actual creators either; they directly animate what they’re told to and, you know, do their fucking job.
↳ if only all fillers could be manga adapted omakes (written by the author) that are just entertaining, light-hearted and extremely enjoyable, like part one’s unmasking of kakashi! but, then again, that makes them still written by the mangaka and would therefore be considered technically canon. 😅

…yeah, choji and karui? damn, i know. like, they were a literal ass-pull that desperately needed an explanation and s/p didn’t even attempt to touch upon it or feature them! (yet they unnecessarily ingrain hinata into every canon or omake plot-line? priorities, s/p.) which, btw, also leads chokarui lacking in the time-line too… like, since all the couples have kids within the same time-frame, which isn’t a substantial amount of time after the wedding for them to meet, bond, develop a significant enough relationship for her to move, settle down and have a kid.
↳ neither karui nor tenten are hinata though, therefore they don’t matter enough to receive decent enough screen-time. (although, tenten did feature somewhat in the final arc.) it’s s/p after all, we know where their priorities lie.

Dialogue/Description Balance

Every writer falls into one four categories of capability. Either they excel at writing description (but not dialogue), at dialogue (but not description), at both, or at neither.

What I usually find is a person tends to be in one of the first two categories: either they have great description but their dialogue is lacking in some capacity, or their dialogue is great but the description is weak. I tend to fall in the latter category.

Nevertheless, I’m going to be talking all about dialogue and description, how to fake it if you can’t do one or both, and how to find a balance between them so that the story flows effortlessly (well, that’s the hope).

Before I start in, I just want to clarify that description includes not only of the setting and characters but also of their actions in scenes, how they move and react as they converse.

Also, as a general rule, if you are lacking in one or both of these areas (or any part of writing), don’t worry about it when you’re writing the first draft. Just get it down. Then go back in after its done, knowing your weaknesses, and revise the hell out of it.

Description Writing Tips

  • Study the art of good description: To improve your description writing skills, read description that you like, from any story or piece of writing. Really try to break down what exactly you like about it, what they do, where they put the description, what they don’t describe, etc.
  • Practice: get a photo you like—or better yet, go outside (gasp!)—and try to describe the scenery, every detail you can. Be excessive, over the top. Just practice noticing the little details.

  • Details make characters feel real: This is fairly obvious. But what may not be is what details should be included. Many writers do the typical hair and eye color (which I’m guilty of too). This is not a bad thing, but it is nice to try to move beyond that or at least add to it. In any case, any description you have of a character, try to use it for more than just a description. It should be incorporated into the story. Think about what details would be important. Why is it significant that his eyes are blue? Is it because they look haunting or mystical? Because they affect others or perhaps the main character? This is just a simple example, but hopefully you get the idea.

Dialogue Writing Tips

  • Study conversations: Similar to the description section, it’s helpful to study good dialogue in stories, noticing everything about it, like the things being said, what’s not said, and even how it’s being said. Also listen to people converse in real life…Listen to the way they talk, how they say certain phrases, their tones, facial expressions, body language. It’s all a part of the dialogue.
  • Practice: To start off, just try writing the same sentence/thought/idea, but have different people say it. How does it change if someone is shy? Bold? Angry? Bossy? Now pick one character, and try changing who this person is saying it to. Everyone speaks differently depending on the person and situation. For instance, if a character is at work, are they polite and respectful? Formal? Loud and obnoxious? This will say a lot about them as character, without you having to describe it!

  • Not everything has to be said: Whether they’re best friends or enemies, a lot is passed without saying a thing. Maybe two characters are close and read each other’s minds or finish each other’s sentences. One glance could equal not only a whole conversation, but also say a ton about the nature of the relationship between the two characters. Maybe two characters are in the relationship, and it’s clear that they’re not happy, not because they say they’re unhappy, but just by their actions and words (or lack thereof). For instance, if they’re angry at each other, they’ll probably avoid one another very purposefully and use very short, direct statements. It’s also important to note that some pieces of dialogue are just filler and can be taken out. For instance, if you have a scene with a conversation that takes place on a phone, you don’t want to include the formalities like “Hi.” “Hey.” “How are you?” “I’m fine…” Etc. That will just bog the story down and add clutter to the writing. We all know that people don’t just start right into the meaty part of a conversation. The only instance I can see these formalities being used is if it’s purposeful and says something about the characters’ relationship. For instance, maybe they were close, but now it’s awkward as they both clearly don’t know what to say.

How to Balance Description and Dialogue:

  • Placement of description is important: When it comes to describing scenery, there are separate paragraphs dedicated to it. Usually the details are broadly scoped, with a few smaller, significant details. As the characters move through the scene, smaller and smaller idiosyncrasies should crop up. Sprinkle them in with the dialogue and movement. When it comes to description of a person, it’s rare to find a large paragraph dedicated to just the outer appearance. Maybe a small, flash description (like the first one or two things someone would notice about the person), with more details sprinkled in as the scene/dialogue progresses. It’s important to find a balance so that it doesn’t feel like its separate chunks of description and dialogue. They should mix together a bit in a scene.
  • The point of view can change the balance: If it’s in first person, there will probably be a bit less description than when writing in third. Most people don’t think in such detailed descriptions, so it doesn’t feel quite realistic. Of course, there’s always room for breaking rules. For instance, if the point of view character is an artist of some sort and that’s part of their personality to be flowery and excessive in their thoughts and probably their speech as well.
  • EVERYTHING should push the story forward: it’s difficult to truly know what should be said, what should be described, and what should be perhaps left out altogether. My piece of advice is that whatever you’re writing, it should push the storyline forward. Basically, everything has a purpose in the story. We learn something important to the plot or characters or situation that is relevant. Of course not everything has to relate to the “main plot”, but it should be relevant in some capacity.
  • General things to keep in mind:
    • Conversations will say something about the relationship of the characters speaking. It just will. What that says can and should affect the plot, in some way.
    • The more detailed the description, the more the reader will think that place/person is significant. If you focus on it, you’re drawing attention to it.
    • Read your writing aloud! I can’t stress this enough. If it sounds/feels awkward. It probably is. Focus on that section, and work with it. Take your time to figure it out. If you can’t fix it or even identify those awkward parts, try to get some readers. Preferably not close friends or family as they can be biased or not what to hurt your feelings.
    • Everyone has their own style of writing. It’s not an exact science.
    • Test styles out. Try a new format. Experiment with a new point of view. Take the time to find what works for you.

Hope this helped. And I’m happy to answer any questions or clarify if needed. Happy writing.

V ~ Amnesia ~ Part 4

Disclaimer: This seems like a filler at first but it’s a huge start to the next chapter. I love y'all. Don’t hate V or Jumin after this. Also sorry it’s shorter than the rest!

“ Where do we start? ” you sighed.

“ Start with your perspectives of what happened with Rika ” V commanded. No, it was more like he pleaded. Your heart ached at the sound of her name.

“ Allow me, ” Jumin spoke up for you, “ MC never truly liked Rika and therefore she doesn’t like speaking of her. ”

You let a heavy sigh weigh off of you. Not only don’t you like speaking of her, but you don’t like to hear about her.

“ Rika… we never knew exactly how she committed suicide or why she did it, ” Jumin began, softly placing his hand over yours. It was a signal to tell you to squeeze it if you got too frustrated. You grabbed his hand, lightly letting out some of the stress. “ You never told us what happened to her. Later we figured out what she did. This hurt us all… very deeply. ”

“ I still don’t understand what’s going on…. all that I remember is that I love her… I don’t remember what she did to you all. It couldn’t have been bad… so why didn’t you like her MC? It’s vital that I figure this out soon ” V averted his attention to you, but mainly your hand, the way you laced your fingers with Jumin’s.

“ Before I begin, you should know that I came around two years after Rika passed away. I never knew her personally. I basically took after her. I began hosting parties for the RFA and I began forming a relationship with you, V, ” with each word you spoke, your grip grew tighter, but it didn’t affect Jumin whatsoever, “ As I first started working with the organization, everybody looked up to Rika. I did too at first. Her job takes much skill. After that…. they all slowly begun to realize everything that she did in the wrong. They all realized she was sick, twisted, and cruel. It may have been her mental illness… but I’ll never know. While everybody was shattering before me due to everything she did, all I was able to do was put on a smile, say everything was okay, and comfort them. That’s why I dislike Rika. ”

It was more than that. Way more than just that.

“ No… that’s not true. That’s not like the Rika I remember ” V shook his head. He attempted to convince himself, rather you and Jumin. That was your last straw. You couldn’t stand this anymore. You wanted this entire event to be over. You wanted to move on. You never wanted to hear about Rika again. Slowly, you felt yourself falling out of love with V.

“ Can you not be so damn blind for a moment!? Please! Take how I feel into consideration! My fiance goes out, loses consciousness, remembers everybody but me, now refuses to accept the fact that we used to be together all because of a fucking de- ”

“ MC! It’s okay ” Jumin cut you off before you could say anything harsh to V. “ Jihyun, you should go before she offends you. ”

V didn’t reply. He just gave an understanding nod and left.

“ Jumin…. it’s not okay. I came here because I can’t bare the pain anymore ” your eyes watered up, gazing into Jumin’s metallic ones. “ I should go too. ”

Just like you attempted to escort yourself before, Jumin tugged at your sleeve.

“ Do you want to get dinner with me? ” he offered. A blush tinted your features, from your cheeks to the tips of your ears. Whether it was a date he was asking you on or not, you had to get V out of your mind.

“ Let’s go ”

Part 10 - Part 11 - Part 12 - Part 13 - Part 14  - Part 15

Soon, Wednesday had rolled around. You didn’t understand how time could go by both so quickly, yet so pain-stakingly slow. You felt your strain getting better and better each day, the swelling and coloring going down immensely after having to ice it for no less than 16 hours a day.

Bambam came over often to hang out with you, after Yugyeom left to go to dance practice with his temporary partner each morning. You had met his temporary partner the first day he began to practice with her, which was not long ago. She seemed nice enough, and her skills were impeccable, you were sure she wasn’t in this competition and that maybe she was an extra, or a student teacher of some sort. She was quite beautiful, too; her hair looked nice and soft as if it had never been touched, and she always wore a sweet smile on her face, keeping a bright and positive attitude throughout your meeting with her.

Enjolras’ Anon part Seven!

hi friends! i’m back with another tale of Enjolras’ trying to figure out his damn feelings. it’s only 1k, but alas, I shall try for something longer tomorrow! tbh this is a bit of a filler but it’s important info but not important enough and ugh! writing is haaaaard!

if you like this and want it to continue, give me a comment on AO3!

“E-excuse me?” Enjolras stammered.

“Hoodie. Blue. Mine. On your body,” Grantaire explained, pulling on the hood. “Oh, uh, I needed something to wear today, and it was in my closet.” Enjolras would get a mental bruise from the amount of times he was mentally kicking himself.

Grantaire raised his eyebrows. “Are you ok? You seem… off,” he asked. “Me? Yeah, I’m fine. I’m great. Peachy. How are you?” Enjolras heard Courfeyrac start to giggle, and kicked him. Courfeyrac’s giggling turned into coughs instantly.

“I’m fine, I guess. Wow, is this some side effect of the drinks from last night?” Enjolras nodded quickly. “Yes, that’s exactly it! Would you excuse me for a second?” Enjolras stood up and pushed past Grantaire and into the bathroom. He sat down on one of the toilets and pulled out his phone.

Enjolras : what’s happening? I’ve lost all cool. Can you get him to go away?

Courfeyrac : ferre’s trying, gosh i wished i could have recorded all of that

Enjolras : i was not prepared!

Courfeyrac : clearly, omg you were bright red the entire time, like a tomato or a cherry

Combeferre : he’s going to talk with Bahorel, you can stop hiding in the restroom

Enjolras sighed and put away his phone. Hiding in the bathroom might be the single most embarrassing thing that’s happened to Enjolras. He walked to the sink and splashed some water on his face before leaving the room.

“You hid in a bathroom,” Combeferre stated. “Very observant of you,” Enjolras retorted. “Let me clarify. You hid in a bathroom to hide from someone you know has a crush on you, after stammering out answers to his questions, while you are wearing his hoodie.”

Enjolras groaned, resting his head on the table. “I know.” Combeferre awkwardly pat his head, looking at Courfeyrac for what to do. “You know, maybe you like him too,” Courfeyrac suggested. “No!” Enjolras cried. “I mean, maybe? I don’t know!” Enjolras put his head back on the table.

“Both of those responses lean more towards yes than you were intending,” Combeferre said. “Whatever. We’ll figure this out later. I need to lead a meeting.” Enjolras stood up and walked to the front of the room.

“Yes. He does has a crush on him,” Combeferre concluded, shaking his head. “This is going to be a long night isn’t it?”

no BS

sorry, but not sorry, sasuke’s mission started when she’s pregnant. Karin corroborates that, and that ombilical stuff did the same.

So, this memory of sarada is fake.

Sasuke has been away for that much time.

Or are you admitting that Sasuke managed to go back with sakura and lived with her for a while, but never has been visiting his family afterward, even though it was possible for him? Do you admit that he was never interested in taking family’s picture with them? 

Or Naruto didn’t visit his bestfriend/brother enough to reassure his daugther about the whole trial? For real? The same Naruto who leaves so easily the village for the same best friend, instead of sending ninjas, putting the village in a compromising situation?

Sorry but why does sakura has an old foto of team taka? So old, it doesn’t match the last movie and the novels time’s frame? I guess she gave the ombilical cord to Karin in order to get the only picture of sasuke she could get, managing to let that poor karin believes they were friends, since sasuke didn’t even wait enough for her to deliver the baby.

Or was he there when she delivered the baby but she couldn’t ask an actual picture and she just kept that pitifully old one?

The more I delve into it, the moreI discover how fucked-up this shit is.

Way to go CANON.

Why is sasuke’s girl so stupid that she get frustrated because a woman wears the same glass as hers? Why sakura suddenly has problem with fainting like Hinata FROM THE FILLERS? 

The only romantic thing SS gets from the canon (0 to 700) -in part I, not only it’s not romantic but he considered her like a sis (CANON)- is the family in different panels and part of the worlds. Prior to this chapter, kishi depicts yet again another brotherly gesture -THE POOOOKE-. Now we get gaiden, that depicts nothing good, just a picture of a stoic sasuke, and the two other.

A fucking picture even a crack-shipper can draw for their own crackship. 


Apparently it’s NOT so common for a male  teammate to catch or help their female teammate.

SS is sooooo unique, lol.

jungianca6  asked:

Sooo, what were your overall thoughts about S2 of Snk? Any change that you really hated? Any moment that you really liked?

I must say the season as a whole left me surprised. Some moments were definitely out of place like the ending scenes of Ep. 3 or Ep. 9, but overall it was pretty awesome. It conveyed parts from the manga quite well and even included extras from future scenes. One moment I really liked was the addition of Annie in Ymir’s flashback and of course, the complete revamp of Ymir’s design, fitting what we’ve seen of titan powers so far. 

The only changes I really hated were the boring EMA fillers, with the Sasha scenes being the most annoying of them all. There was a whole volume in the manga where the focus on the main characters was minor but Ep. 3 took the cake by adding a whole half of unnecessary scenes, scenes that could be used to fill some holes in the anime. In example one of my earliest complaints were lines from Nanaba and Pastor Nick missing. While these two characters were minor, Isayama took the time to give them a human side by bringing one’s apologies for casting doubt on the 104th and the other’s drinking problems. I’m kinda attempted to add Ep. 8 to the list, but I think Eren’s reckless nature was a necessary point to emphasize for what’s going to happen in the next season. It also added a nice scene with Hannes, which was just as fitting considering he dies in the finale.

Other scenes that I didn’t like were misplacement of some manga moments. Ep. 10 was probably the worst since it completely erases why Bertolt wanted to bring Reiner back to his senses. Besides, it doesn’t make sense for them to have a friendly chat when they noticed the SC coming close. I’m tempted to add Utgard to the list but Ep. 4 caught the lack of development. 

That famous scene from 77 could fit during Reiner and Bertolt’s conversation in the trees but the whole sequence being recalled from Reiner’s perspective feels… off. Of course it could be seen as him remembering losing it when Marco died, but in this scene it was Bertolt who was death worried about him ; thus it wouldn’t make sense. The same scene in the manga was recalled from Bertolt’s perspective for obvious reasons.

The death scream from Nanaba, which sparkled the controversy of the week, was an interesting input but eventually it has never been elaborated upon. The anime added more Moblit scenes though and I’m grateful for that.

While the reveal of the Armored and the Colossal titans was great, I’m still icked by the censorship (thank god it was edited in the DVD version) and the moment where Reiner and Bertolt realized they’ve been sliced scraped off in this episode. I know Araki has a soft spot for Mikasa but I’m kinda disappointed he can’t make her look bad even in the slightest. Overall, it was probably my most liked moment alongside Ymir’s flashback. There’s some additions and changes I really liked in this scene, like Reiner’s expressions, Bertolt grabbing Reiner’s arm, the sudden change of weather and the whole breakdown. 

One of my favorite additions as the biased shipper that I am was the physical contact between Reiner and Bertolt. It certainly shows how close they are and I wonder if Isayama wasn’t responsible for the armgrab in episode 6, considering how Araki was very reluctant showing Armin and Eren touching and even Moblit grabbing Eren. 

But more importantly, the moments that were the best handled were the yumikuri moments, from the mountain flashback to Ymir staying behind.

Judging by the quality pictures of Historia and Ymir staring at each other after the Utgard battle, you could tell the budget was well spent. The animation team even expanded the mountain flashback to have some trainee filler. Not sure why they added Reiner and Bertolt since this portion isn’t referenced when Eren fights Reiner. Eh, I guess it pleased the Marco fans.

And Ymir’s flashback. Jesus it was so tearful seeing how Ymir got in this position today. It made a nice tribute and a proper development for probably THE central character of the season, especially since… we know what happened to her after she returned with Reiner and Bertolt. The flashback was so emotional with the music and we got a nice addition of what it originally was in the manga, without spoiling too much. And we even have a buttgrab from Historia with no heterosexual explanation and that’s perfect. 

The finale overall was… meh. They’ve scraped bits of 51 that were necessary for character development in order to get to the conclusion that every titan encountered were originally human. While I’m expecting the first episode of season 3 to come back on how Ymir’s departure affected Historia, I’m not so sure about the hospital scene. That was an important moment between Levi and Erwin after all.

Oh and of course, the neat thing is the beginning and the end of the season having something in common: the introduction of the fearsome Beast Titan and and the preview of his human appearance, foreshadowing next season.

That’s all for the relevant points in this season and I wonder how they’ll animate the next two arcs.

anonymous asked:

Thank god for your Sakura loving ass. I got back into Naruto after 10 years. Sakura is my fave now and recognize the problems with the writing of the female characters. Same as the other anon, it's really annoying to go on Reddit and see the constant hate

I mean honestly if you go anywhere there’s Sakura hate because that’s how fucking stupid the western part of the fandom is (and a huge part of that blame is SP’s wonderful fucking work of poisoning and destroying her character with dumbass fillers while at the same time also bringing up another specific kunoichi). The only way to like safely navigate through these days is to genuinely not give a shit or to just surround yourself by Sakura loving ass people like me. lmao.
