My story takes place in a fantasy world, but where magic isn’t prevalent anymore. Their technology is comparable to that of our 1840s. But I don’t know whether I should stick with names like photography or locomotive. I find it hard to believe that a different society would come up whith exactly the same words that we have. That said, my world is heavily influenced by Ancient Rome and Greece, so words like photograph might make sense. It would be great to hear your opinion on this! Thank you :)


Keep in mind: in a fantasy world, they’re not even speaking English or any other earth language, including Greek or Latin, much less words like “photography” or “locomotive.” ;) However, since it’s not viable to invent a fantasy language and then write your entire book in it, you pretty much have to use whatever earth language you need to use. If you’re writing your fantasy novel in English, it’s understood that you’re going to have to use a lot of mundane English words in order to tell the story–things like ale, road, chair, dress, apple, sky, etc.

When it comes to certain things, you can certainly invent words. Indeed, doing so can add to the fantasy feel of your story. However, you want to avoid doing it overly much. Nothing pulls a reader out of a fantasy faster than a slew of invented words, especially when they’re being used for mundane things. For something like photography or locomotives, you might consider inventing a word that is similar but different. Like “photographics” or “locomotiva.” But, only if those things are important to the story. Again, you don’t want to give funky names to a lot of mundane things in your story. :)

Have a writing question? I’d love to hear from you! Please be sure to read my ask rules and master list first or your question will not be answered. :)

Is that weird or what? [laughing] I mean, I can still touch stuff. I’m not a ghost. More like a psychic imprint. Stuck between dimensions thanks to hell’s bell. One foot on Earth, the other in Cade’s nightmare world of hurt. On the run, off the grid. A renegade relying only on his wits. [laughs] A renegade. That’s funny. I can still do magic if I siphon myself, but even then, it takes concentration. It’s like having cell reception on Mars.

[TRANS] SPRING DAY - BTS

Miss you
saying this makes me miss you more
i miss you even though im looking at your photo
time is so cruel, i hate us
seeing each other for once is so hard between us

it’s all winter here even in August
my heart is running on the time alone on the snowpiercer
i wanna get to the other side of the earth holding your hand 
wanna put an end to this winter
how much longing should we see snowing down to have the days of spring, friend

like the tiny dust like tiny dust floating in the air
will i get to you a little faster if i was the snow in the air 

snowflakes fall and get away little by little
i miss you i miss you
how long do i have to wait
and how many sleepless nights do i have to spend
to see you to meet you 

passing by the edge of the cold winter
until the days of the spring 
until the flowers blossom
please stay, please stay there a little longer

is it you who changed or is it me?
i hate this moment that this time flows
we are changing you know, just like everyone you know 
yes i hate you, you left me 
but i never stopped thinking about you, not even a day
honestly i miss you but ill erase you
cuz it hurts less than to blame you

i try to exhale you in pain like smoke, like white smoke
i say that ill erase you but i cant really let you go yet

snowflakes fall and get away little by little
i miss you i miss you
how long do i have to wait
and how many sleepless nights do i have to spend
to see you to meet you

you know it all, youre ma best friend
the morning will come again 
no darkness, no season can last forever

maybe its cherry blossoms and this winter will be over 
i miss you i miss you 
wait a little bit, just a few more nights
ill be there to see you, ill come for you 

passing by the edge of the cold winter
until the days of the spring
until the flowers blossom
please stay, please stay there a little longer

everything about harry just works for him but only him like if any other man on earth came up to me wearing skinny jeans and a hawaiian t shirt unbuttoned down to his belly button and rings on each of his fingers i’d call the cops

I like to imagine Neil giggles a lot when he gets tipsy. Imagine: Andrew and Neil sitting on the roof, sharing a bottle of whiskey, Andrew’s bitching about Kevin and Exy and Neil is just lying with his head on his lap, staring up at his stupid face and losing his shit. Andrew alternates between glaring at him and shutting him up with a kiss. 

Snape and Fandom Hypocrisy

Don’t defend Draco Malfoy by saying he was a product of his environment, and then bash Snape for being a product of his.

Don’t say Narcissa Malfoy is a hero for turning against Voldemort after he threatened the people she loved, and then bash Snape for changing sides after Voldemort threatened Lily.

Don’t defend Sirius Black’s “prank” to kill Snape as a misunderstanding, and then call Snape evil for inventing spells such as sectumsempra to defend himself.

Don’t say Snape was creepily obsessed with Lily (he wasn’t), but ignore the fact that James told Lily he would stop bullying her friend if she went on a date with him.

Diaz and Butterfly Families

Marco Diaz and his parents Rafael and Angie Diaz, and Princess Star Butterfly and her parents Queen Moon and King River Butterfly. That is big families between Diaz Family live in Earth and Butterfly Family live in Mewni.
