Here’s some background on the S3 villain, Reign. It’s was put pretty obvious in the finale when they specifically said it will Reign. I think that literally no one got that reference since she really isn’t that well known. Reign has been described as Supergirl’s doomsday, but I’m not exactly sure how similar they are. Apparently Reign is a part of something bigger, or what seems like a bigger group of weapons. Reign is sort of like a weapon more than a person. She was created like Bizarro to be “evil”. So she’s not inherently bad she was created that way. I totally picture Kara trying to help her instead of fighting her. We’ll see how they decide to go with this. It will definitely be a test of Kara’s strength.

Di thing weh dawg see an bark whole night, goat see an shut im mouth!

Jamaican Proverb | Translation: What a dog sees and barks at all night, it is the same thing a goat sees and shut its mouth.

Meaning: The dog might be barking at a mere shadow, but the goat, being prudent, is not easily agitated and will therefore remain calm and unruffled by the minor issue. Similarly, such persons who create a sensation over inconsequential issues, who readily give false alarms or make an issue out of a case which would be better ignored.

Hi. While developing the personality of my characters, is it okay to use other characters from books or tv shows or real people and use a few characters or people as inspiration, and mix up some personality traits to create a unique personality out of it? Or does that just seems lazy? I have been thinking of using personality tests (MBTI, Enneagram, Moral Alignments) or maybe even astrology to figure out the personality of my character. But I am not sure about my tehcniques?

There are all kinds of hierarchies in the perceptions of literature and writing–that poetry is a lesser art form, that fantasy is the most shameful of fiction genres to write, that first person point of view is the tool of immature writers, that pantsers or periodic writers somehow aren’t really writers, that fanfiction isn’t really literature–and I hate them all. I hate that one way of writing is considered less than another. I hate that humans have this driving need to categorize and rank those categories with arbitrary ideas about what is more worthy (of belonging to a label or of spending time on), more difficult to execute and therefore better, more…whatever. Ditch the idea that any technique is “lazy” and therefore not an acceptable way to write.

If it helps you craft your story and get it onto a page where people can read it, then do it.

In terms of whether it’s okay from a legal standpoint, what you describe is perfectly fine. We all pull inspiration from the things we watch and read and see; it’s virtually impossible not to. With other works, be sure you’re pulling inspiration, not entire characters verbatim or you may be looking at copyright infringement. With real people, make sure you’re not purposefully trying to injure their reputation lest you run into problems with libel. Observing individuals and using those observations to extrapolate personality traits that you then turn around and apply to your own characters is fine; recreating exactly the character or person is unwise–after all, you want to tell your story, not theirs.

Personality tests like the ones you mentioned as well as zodiac and other astrological interpretations are very common ways of putting together characters. None of these say lazy to me, but rather resourceful. It takes research and thought when doing those tests and watching people with the intent to understand their facets.

You use what you find to be most helpful. That’s the number 1 rule in writing, whether it’s looking over critique feedback, reading writing advice, or looking at other people’s processes. While seeing what others do may give you a better way to do something, that’s not always the case. Always think about how you function best as a writer and a learner and use those techniques that work best for you. If personality tests are your door into a character’s mind and personality, go for it. Good luck! -Pear

Me trying to guess who the next confirmed LGBT+ OW-character will be: Haha what if Lucio had a cute omnic boyfriend
Me:
Me: o h  n o


EDIT:  The omnic boyfriend now has a name — Obi, or O-B to those familiar~!

Friendly reminder that trans boys are still boys even if they are feminine, dye their hair with bright colors, call themselves boys instead of men, wear pastel colored clothes, and don’t give in to toxic masculinity and gender roles

Friendly reminder that feminine trans mlm are mlm and NOT girls fetishizing mlm relationships

Friendly reminder that feminine trans boys and feminine trans mlm are valid and are welcome in our community

if you think OC muses should be treated with the same respect as canons. 

anonymous asked:

Hi, 7goodangel. I am here to ask you about PaperJam as a shy, smol and innocent being (mainly thegreatrouge made him be). There has been some conflicts regarding his trait. Some said his canonical personality is a jerk, like what you wrote in his bio / info and some said that is severely wrong and being shy, (which made him shipped with Fresh), is his canonical personality. What are your thoughts about this? I mean, it is your character and people are taking control of it. Don't you disagree?

Well… I have talked to people and seen public conversations and this has happened several times to me over months. I guess I’ve gotten a little numb to it now… or maybe it’s due to school that I haven’t given it the attention that it deserves. Probably due to school. 

I just can’t update constantly like others - even though some others in school were and are able to update constantly. I can’t keep going around and holding up my bio of PJ and police people. It’s exhausting to me… it really takes up the small bit of free time I have. 

I think after I get a solid job that I’ll be able to go around better… but anyway - back to your question. 


While I love seeing interpretations and do not want people to be limited by something and have their imaginations go forth… it’s proving that a huge con comes with that mentality - which you have pointed out. A lot of people swear that PJ is the cute, innocent interpretation that really, did get PJ popular in the first place. While I did have him as a jerk from the beginning - I kinda kept that info to my RP blog - so you could say it is my fault this is all happening and I do think that. I could of done something to make it not as bad as it is now… 

It’s just like the NSFW stuff… people just assume the first thing and run with it. And it really does make me feel like I really am not needed for my own character at points. 

It’s a struggle - I don’t want to have people stop interpreting PJ within AUs… but I also don’t want people to just see him as an innocent child to ship with Fresh. 

And I’m still trying to find the best solution to it. 

But… I feel like the damage is already done. It’s too late for me to talk to all of these people going around swearing on their life that PJ is canoncally like Rouge’s interpretation/AUs. It feels like an hopeless battle to me. 

And I guess I needed someone to ask me this question so then I can fully say my thoughts on this. 

So in short, while I love creativity and don’t want to snuff it out (considering some people would probably think I’m doing that already with saying “No Sin”), I still don’t like it. It irritates me, irks me, frustrates me, and I feel like even as the person who thought of PJ in the first place, my voice isn’t enough. Communities seem like they don’t care about artists unless they reach a ‘certain goal of popularity’ or seem like they have a more professional style of art. I know I do not reach either of those titles. 

People misspell my username all the time - I actually claimed ‘7goodangle’ on tumblr for that reason.

People still say “I’m too lazy to find who made PJ” when they clearly mentioned they looked at the bio on the wiki. 

People still go around arguing others on the canon ship of OmniPJ and swearing that FreshPaper is the true canon ship, when all people are pointing out is that they need to keep the canon ship in mind when going around with information.

Even just basic personality traits… and these things are happening on sites that I do not nor want an account for. 

I still want others to have fun - to be happy; but I don’t know… I guess I’m cutting out my own happiness to get everyone else happy? I want to eventually write a version of PJ within his own universe and story… and he is more like the version I created within the UT verse. Not exact - but close. Though who knows… I might shove PJ to the side and replace his role with another character. I’m still weighing options.

Cause PJ was the first character I ever put this much time and thought into… my first character that was balanced, well rounded…

And what happens?

…well.

You said it Anon. 

They took it - changed it (initially as an AU but now people think it’s canon) - and I can’t do much about it. Due to school and not much free-time… due to how many don’t know the true creator… and just back talking anyone who is just mentioning it to people who swear by it. 

As an artist and a character designer…

It makes me not want to show designs, characters, and stories ever again online.

Considering if this is how I was treated on the first one… why even take a chance at a second one? If it has brought me so much stress, frustration, and time… why even try it again?

I said I was only going to do fanart so if anyone stole it, it didn’t really matter. 
I think I should have stuck with that thought process. 

In conclusion, there are some major things to take away here. First – that yes, I do not like how it has skewed this far to the point of arguing over a fandom version with the canon. Canon is canon and I get the different AUs – this is too far. Way too far. I am emotionally drained from this – from this whole mess that I have been defending throughout majority of PJ’s lifespan. I will state this – Paper Jam is my character. He is my original character that I created more than a year ago. And the UT AU fandom took my character and warped him to something he is not and all of his original meaning is lost. I do not like to hurt others or make other sad – but I must put my foot fully down. This miscommunication needs to stop. I am tired of repeating things over and over and I have past my breaking point time and time again. I just want people to see PJ how he really is… and I wish that people could be focusing more on the reality of him instead of the alternate that they all claim as truth.

Final words: I still like Undertale – I still like creating characters and having fun – but the Undertale AU fandom is ridiculous now. The Amino UT community is insanity in an app, and there is a lot of stuff that has made many artists and creators to their breaking point and leaving the fandom entirely. Everyone in this fandom needs to take ten steps back and look at what they are doing. Go back to the game. Play it again – watch your favorite let’s player’s videos of it again. 

And just… food for thought… please don’t jump the gun on someone else’s OC’s personality and actions. 

I do not want anyone to experience what I had.

hi can I get a fuckin uhhhhhhh

badass, accomplished, intelligent leader Lance who is strong in his own right and doesn’t need to be coddled and doesn’t take shit from others AND PEOPLE ACTUALLY LISTEN TO HIM AND RESPECT HIM

ATTENTION!!

There’s this huge problem spreading across amino, and possibly other social media platforms, and it would be horrible to have this happen to anybody else.

There is this horrible thing going around popular aminos called ‘The Blue Whale Challenge’, which is an app that has a link to it. If you do get a link to it from ANYBODY, I advise to immediately block them, and report them.

This 50 day challenge, also known as ‘The Blue Whale Game’ is reported to have you do various things to harm yourself, or put yourself in immediate danger. These things include cutting yourself in various ways, (cutting into major veins, carving symbols into your body, generally harming yourself, etc.) going on top of buildings and standing close to the edge, attempting to climb a crane, talking to others suffering the same ordeal, etc.

On the 50th day, they tell you to take your life. Jump from a building. Do not do any of this, EVER. There are people that care for you, and there would be people that would miss you horribly. Call the suicide hotline. Get help. Please, stay safe. Do not do this to yourself.

If you download this app, they hack into your electronic device and find all of your personal information, and make it so that you can’t remove or delete the app. They will use whatever they can get against you. Your credit card, tell you that they will hunt down your loved ones and kill them, anything. The person that created this game may have been arrested, but there are people still sending the links for this game.

Please, spread awareness about this problem so we can stop it before it starts. Stay safe, because I care. There are others that do too. Please, once again, stay safe, and do not download this app, or joke about it in any way.

So my english teacher just gave us a speech yesterday on how “Plastic is the one to blame on homosexuality because is scientifically proven that it has a chemical that makes people more feminine.” 

And like yeah it’s stupid nonsense (and p dang homophobic mixing femininity with homosexuality) and its obviously something fake he believed bc he believes everything he listen on fucking conspiracy white gringos videos on youtube.

But you know what? I am buying it, plastic is gay now, I’m sorry straighties

You know what, FUCK you people insisting on homophobia being necessary in yoi

Like this lovely person created a fictional world so wonderful homophobia doesn’t even exist within it and instead of being grateful you spit in her face and go FUCK YOU I WANT THE HOMOPHOBIA, I LOVE HOMOPHOBIA

You’re not progressive, you have a victim complex

I just wanna say, my favourite thing about Orisa is that she’s distinctly human.

I think the worst and laziest idea in all science fiction is the idea of general artificial intelligence as a kind of blank slate, as something that just exists.

I don’t know if we’ll ever create GAI, but I’m willing to bet they won’t speak in a synthetic, unaccented, “neutral” English.  I can’t imagine humans creating a kind of person which fails to reflect the culture and society that birthed it.

Orisa’s distinctly Western, Sub-Saharan African look and voice is, in a very weird way, incredibly realistic to me.

She looks like something we’d actually create.
