personal post you don't care about

gentle reminder that although people are temporary, love itself isn’t! even if they might have taken their love with them when they left it’s always going to come back to you in a different form, in a different person! so don’t give up, thinking it’s the end! love travels in circles and those are endless.

  • you: mary's death is important!!! it is important so sherlock stops being arrogant!! and it is important the show has conflict!!! john and sherlock need conflict or the show is stagnant!!!!
  • me, an intellectual: in episode 5.8 of elementary, Jonny Lee Miller's Sherlock Holmes decides that he is far too clever to continue attending recovery meetings. Joan "played by Lucy Lui whose character is not a cheating hypocritical white male" Watson points out to Sherlock that addicts who continue going to meetings maintain their recovery better than those who don't. After some crime solving and self reflection, Sherlock takes Joan's advice and returns to regularly attending meetings wherein he acknowledges his arrogance and starts on the path of unlearning his arrogance. This happens as a result of mutual honesty and respect between him and his best friend/equal partner Joan "played by Lucy Lui whose character is not a cheating hypocritical white male" Watson and Sherlock's disposition for self-reflection and the best part??????? No women were killed to make male characters more interesting because Elementary is not written by misogynistic wankers who openly admit to not reading valid critiques of their show, but is written by decent humans that care about their audience AND the sensitivity of their content.

In italian we don’t say ‘I love you’ to friends or family members because 'Ti amo’ (I love you) is usually intended only as 'romantic love’. You can say you feel love for something or someone and not be misunderstood (I love my friends/amo i miei amici or I love music/amo la musica) but you don’t usually say 'I love you’ to anyone other than your romantic partner. Instead we say 'Ti voglio bene’ which is difficult to translate because the literal meaning is 'I want good for/to you’ but it really means: -I care for you -I want the best for you -I feel affection towards you -I hope you’re fine -I want good things happen to you. When you use 'Ti voglio bene’ you’re saying that you want the other person to be happy, because you care for them.

I'm planning out a "short story" where my main character is a rich girl with a dad who buys her golden cars and stuff and she's an incredibly talented cheerleader and is super smart but I'm having trouble making her less 1 dimensional. I want her to be more than just the rich-bitch and I want to give her flaws but I don't know how to approach it. Any advice?

Hello there!  

This is one of my favorite types of characters, so I’m really glad you asked.  First and foremost I’ll direct you to my Traits of a Likable Hero post, as it talks about the foundation stones that I’ve observed almost all protagonists have.

For this particular archetype, however, here are my personal rules of thumb: 

1.  Make sure she cares about others!  

Think Charlotte from Princess and the Frog.  Nothing screams “rich girl with a heart of gold” more than one who unabashedly plays mama bear to all of her friends, particularly ones less privileged than her.  

Let her care about their feelings, treat them to lunches they wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford, ride her ponies, go for joyrides with her in her expensive cars.

Also, allow her to extend empathy and friendship to people of a lower status than herself:  let’s say there’s a new chubby, nerdy, or socially awkward girl who’s being bullied.  A person of your character’s status could easily make that character’s life a lot better, so allow her to do so.  It will instantaneously make your character more sympathetic and likable.   

Just be sure said less-privileged character is an equally three-dimensional and lovable character, otherwise it will come off as a charity case. This will also give your readers a lovely friendship that they can root for.    

(On a side note, Rich and Privileged Character who Openly Cares About Her Loved Ones is legit one of my personal favorite tropes of all time.)

2.  Show how hard she works.

One of the main obstacles to making wealthy, privileged characters likable is the fact that they can come off as entitled, lazy, and often spoiled.  To combat this, show how hard your character works to get where she is. 

Cheerleading, for example, is a difficult sport, at least as much so as the football games they cheer on.  Pyramids, backflips, synchronization, etc. requires a lot of time and effort to master.

So give your readers a glimpse of your character while she’s practicing!  Be sure to describe the sweat, sore muscles, and fatigue that goes into doing what she loves.  This is also great, because female-dominated sports such as cheerleading are frequently dismissed as being less chalanging, so it’s a wonderful opportunity to show the reader otherwise.

Similarly, you mentioned your character to be smart.  So give the reader a glimpse of her studying!  Better yet, show her tutoring other students in her free time, as this will also make her more likable to the reader as well.

Other ways to make her more sympathetic would include her doing volunteer work, for example, contributing to charities, killing vampires, et cetera.  The more you show your character earning her status, the more likable she’ll be.

3.  Remember your character doesn’t have to be perfect!  

Thus far, we’ve established that your character is beautiful, wealthy, accomplished, and kind.  

This does not mean, however, that she’s automatically perfect;  your character will make mistakes, and these mistakes are integral both to creating a compelling plot, and to making her sympathetic and personable to your readers.

Maybe she makes slip ups based on her status, and then has to learn from them (e.g. assuming poor people are lazy because she heard it from the adults around her), or perhaps they’re completely unrelated.  Either way, don’t be afraid to let your character make gaffs, big or small;  just so long as she learns from them and emerges a better person because of it.  

This not only allows the audience to relate to your character, but may just help them grow as well.

(I had to include at least one Asami gif, as she’s one of my all time favorite Rich Girls With a Heart of Gold and also my gilfriend.  Don’t tell Korra.) 

Aside from that, treat her like any other character.  Her archetype doesn’t necessarily need to impact her quirks, her likes or dislikes, and it would probably be boring if it did (you know those cheesy old sitcoms where all the jokes revolved around the character’s “type?”  Yeah, you don’t want that.)

So for further reference, I’ll direct you to my How to Get to Know Your Characters post here, and my Female Characters to Avoid Post here.   

I hope this helps, and happy writing!  <3

Guys, I have a little tip about reading fanfiction that will make your life so much easier.

If you don’t like the premise of a fic? Don’t read it. If you start reading a fic and there’s something in it you don’t like? Stop reading it.

And the one thing you should absolutely never do is tell the author how much you hated their fic, and how they’re a terrible person for not catering to your specific interests, because they don’t care.

Here's the thing. About original shit.

People don’t care.

But here’s also the thing.

People care significantly LESS about original things that are not ART.

You can say that your original art doesn’t get much notice and sure, that is true, but imagine writing original shit and knowing there’s not a chance in hell anyone but a very select few of super dedicated friends who will bother reading it.

At least if you draw your OCs or your landscapes or whatever the right way, you may get people reblogging or liking it because it looks gorgeous or cool.

Writers don’t get that 🙄

Now imagine you wrote over 350k words about a fictional universe you wrote the rules and limits of and developed entire series within it and dedicated your time and heart into it and knowing none but a select few will even try to read it because god.

“I don’t read regular books anymore lol, they’re too boring, I just read fanfiction!”

Good for you.

  • Me: I'm fine.
  • Me, internally: Mycroft Holmes is the most precious person and nobody appreciates him. Sure, he has this stupid power complex, but he goes through every shit to protect his brother. He abuses government means to the extremest to keep an eye on him, risking his job to do so although it is the only thing he has, the only thing that distracts his mind and gives him purpose. He worries and is mocked about his weight when he is fucking gorgeous. He makes Sherlock forget about Victor Trevor's death and Eurus to enable him a normal, stable life - making that decision on his own at a very young age, because apparently he thought it was the very best for him. He helps Sherlock through his drug addiction, lets him write lists to ensure his highs will never end six feet under. He checks on his brother's new flatmate to make sure he does not threaten his newly-gained and fragile stability, helps Sherlock to fake his death, gets him out of Russian imprisonment by doing legwork that he is obviously not at all used to, risking his job and even his life, this time, gets him a pardon so Sherlock won't go mad in prison, assures him his support when Sherlock is a cynical bitch, accuses Lady Smallwood of being a spy because his brother believes so, and insults Sherlock and John to get his brother to kill him because he knows Sherlock needs John, despite the fact that he has just freaked out and vomitted because a man has been shot with a gun. He manages to play his act cooly to make it easier for his brother and STILL after all he's done for Sherlock, his brother chooses to shoot him, proving that here is nobody who loves him the most, that even the only person he cares about would choose somebody else over him. And then Mummy holmes says Sherlock has always been the grown up, like, fuck you, you don't know a shit about your own family. It bloody /hurts/, just give this wonderful, caring man some love like I don't even care who it is he deserves it so fucking much

Please be careful if you reblog from Tikkun and others who follow them after their anti-black-american bullshit they pulled at least twice this year. They're selective and they don't post facts, they compared Jay Z to Hitler, etc. They have been called out for this crap over and over again. They don't know anything about historical context and they stay passing around harmful discourse because of it.

There’s literally a Black person on that reblog.

Lotor may trust his Generals but not necessarily care for them. He is known to use people for his own agendas. Why would he blame Acxa for failing to stop Voltron when all she was doing was following his orders down to the last detail? That in itself gives a clue to how Lotor really sees his Generals. He trusts them sure but he also kind of manipulates them. He makes them believe his duplicitousness is ok and that he should never be held accountable for his mistakes.

I’m not really sure where you read that, and I’m not saying that to be argumentative, I’m saying that because I genuinely don’t get that impression anywhere in Lotor’s behavior.

We see Lotor discussing, with the team, exactly how he engages with the main empire and how he manipulates people like Throk. They’re the people he discusses his real feelings with behind Throk’s back.

Hello, I was wondering if you had any advice on how to wash a binder? Or if you've made a post about it that you could direct me to? I'm not sure how to go about washing mine and don't want to do it the wrong way. Thank you in advance!

The best way to care for your binder might vary a bit depending on what brand it is, but the general advice I have always seen given and that I personally follow is:

  • Ideally, you should wash it after every time you have sweated in it. Which is basically after every time you wear it, if you wear it for longer periods of time. I know that washing it this often isn’t always possible though, but it’s good to try to wash it at least once a week if you wear it regularly.

  • Handwash it. Some tags say they’re machinewash safe, but imo it’s not worth risking it as bnders are usually relatively expensive.
  • Use cold water and a small amount of mild detergent. (Sometimes I skip the detergent and just wash it with water alone - it’s not as good, but still way better than nothing).
  • Be careful not to stretch it while you wash it. Scrunch it up into a ball rather than twisting it, for example. Be gentle with your binder.
  • You won’t be able to get all of the water out of it after you’ve washed it, so hang it up on a hanger over the bathtub or over a towel or similar. Someplace where it can drip away over night until it’s dry.
  • About that: washing it in the evening is usually a good idea, since you will then have a dry and clean binder in the morning. You can absolutely wash it during the day too, but you should leave it alone while it is drying. Wearing a wet binder is generally not a very safe thing to do.

If any of my followers have any additional info/advice to add, please feel free to add to this post.

So I saw the ask that said "don't post nsfw stuff because minors follow you". And I was like "bitch, is this your blog? No. Its not. You don't get to decide what someone posts." You can post whatever you want.

that’s not that the ask said. the ask told me to be mindful of a fandom mostly comprised of children, and i am glad for such advice. i have a personally blog where i can post explicit stuff about myself whenever i want, but i am willfully interacting with a community of mostly teenagers, and thus it is my responsibility to be careful around them

I think that if someone were to ask me “which member represents B.A.P the best?” my answer would almost definitely be Choi Junhong. While there’s no question that every member is equally important to the group Junhong embodies the spirit of B.A.P and their experiences in a way no one else does.

It’s all the positive and inspiring things about them that I see reflected in Junhong; his ambition and constant drive to improve himself, not only in dancing and rapping but also his singing, song writing, on-stage charisma and everything else that comes with being an idol. It’s his modesty and love for his peers, how he looks up to those around him and both draws strength and finds inspiration in their talents; how he is so full of love and respect for others but has his own way of showing it in public. It’s in his optimism and will to put a smile on his hyungs’ faces and the overwhelming warmth that he emanates as a person.

It’s in the small quirks of his character: his reserved shyness that is noticeably present in half the group but also his exuberant and vibrant personality that is always bubbling under the surface.

I also see the tragedies B.A.P has faced in him, maybe because he is the youngest and it’s impossible for that not to leave a mark despite how the other members have wanted to protect him. Insecurities, both regarding his looks and his personality; his performances and his dreams. The loss of innocence and pain the entire group faced due to the exploitation and abuse of their company. The need to grow up quickly to face the world as an adult, because it would not care if he was a child. The anger and frustration during the lawsuit that radiates from No Title, the loss of trust and bitterness that everyone, fans included, experienced as they waited for a response from TS.

But what’s most impressive is that despite the hard times B.A.P have been through, he’s still a glowing example of all those positives. He’s still working hard and improving himself, he is always looking to support and protect his hyungs - and is supported and protected by them in turn. It’s in how even though he has faced struggles Junhong is still a bright, cheerful and positive kid, who still retains some of that childlike innocence, even if he’s becoming more and more grown up by each day.

I can only imagine how proud the other members of B.A.P have felt today, because they’ve been there to assist and help Junhong grow for years, and he has grown (both physically and mentally). He is such a kind and intelligent person, one of the best thing to come out of the k-pop industry, that even I feel that same pride when looking at him.

Happy birthday Junhong, I hope you’ll continue doing your best and taking care of yourself in the next year as well. BABYz are proud of you.

If this dips too much into fandom discourse for you feel free to ignore, but what are your thoughts on all the discussion about Sun following Blake, the stalker allegations, and Blake basically saying "naw it's cool" in the most recent episode? Personally, I don't any problem with Sun as a character, but I think the decision to have him following her in secret in a dark hood was maybe a wrong choice and just having him give a quick apology would have been a better way to handle it.

I am working on a longer post about this. I think people should be more careful with throwing the term Stalker around. No matter if you approve of his behaviour or not, it wasn’t stalking because that is something completely different. Stalking is a repeated and threatening behaviour. He followed her once and we don’t even know for how long he didn’t reveal his identitiy even though he had a chance to. It could have only been a a day or two.

No matter if is behaviour was right or not, his intention should be considered here as well and when I watched the episode I got the impression that he was hiding under a hood to give her privacy. He wanted to be there, to follow her, but also not to push himself onto her too much. Taking Sun’s character into regard that makes the most sense to me. We should also not forget that Sun didn’t know Blake only wanted to see her family, he thought she was going after the White Fang and didn’t want her to fight alone. From his point of view it made much more sense to follow her. 

The issue between Blake and Sun is not that Sun is an abusive stalker. Ever since Volume 4 he has done nothing but trying to support Blake wherever he can and to be a good friend. He doesn’t even have his own arc or agenda (if you ignore the romantic component that only really exists in the songs and would actually make him a shitty character if he only did all these things because he thinks she’s hot, which I think is really unfair to his character), he has done nothing but supported hers. 

The issue between the two of them is that they are extremely different and therefore don’t really understand each other. Sun is a good person and he genuinely tries to help Blake, but even though at the end of Volume 4 he has helped her through a really dark time and said exactly the right words, his approach at the beginning of Volume 4 was awkward and clumsy. He’s obviously not good with that sort of thing and what he thought would be the best method to help her actually wasn’t. But he has learned and eventually found the right words to build her up again in 4x11. Blake said it’s cool in 5x05 because she understands what he was trying to do and because their friendship is not what it used to be at the end of Volume 3. She knows he won’t do that again, next time he will talk to her, as well as she will let him talk to her next time. 

Could they have handled it better? Maybe. But I don’t really liked thinking about it, because now it can’t be undone anyway. No use in crying over spilled milk. 

So this actually got quite long, but I hope I got my point across.
