@voltron-ss This is for Chiara @cherrychisoup !! They wanted Pidge, Allura, Shay, or klance – heck, why not all of the above? Happy Holidays, Chiara!
Pidge is now taller than everyone, Allura isn’t sure what Christmas is but it sounds fun, Shay is too big for anyone’s sweaters, Hunk is attempting to knit a big sweater, Shiro thinks if they all worked together they could be the Tallest Pile of Paladins, Lance isn’t great at piggyback rides, and Keith thinks they should at least have Hunk on their side.
[Ask RPedia] Writing Too Much, and When It’s a Problem?
Anonymous asked RPedia: Hi! I was browsing online for random stuff about roleplaying and I found a post about what people find annoying, and one of the points was ‘replies that are too long’ and as a person who writes a lot it kinda made me paranoid? Their point was that it is useless and you should just get to the important parts, especially if you repeat yourself or are too wordy. Is it true that people find it annoying? I never thought of it, I always write long replies to explain what is going on on my OC’s head :/
Yep, this is actually a problem, but it’s not a problem for the reasons you’ve listed! Look, I’m gonna give you two sample posts, you tell me which one is more fun and we’ll dissect why. This is actually a very common problem, because a lot of kids really, really, want to impress their partners, but just don’t have the skills (or possibly the ability to frame new details/information) to do so yet. Your content and presentation, essentially, has to mean something, and relate to what you’re talking about in your post. Your wording should add to the story in some way; be that to elicit a response, or explain an idea you want to get across in some way so the other author knows about it. Squish unimportant things together to make them more important bullet points, or don’t say them if at all they don’t add something to the pot. That’s the major concept here.

Ahh of course you could! apologies for taking so long in answering but have someSemiSuga headcanons!
Ugly cozy sweaters on pretty boys! Just imagine them strolling around in such ugly sweaters, and people’s eyes would automatically zone in on the sweaters but once they ‘see’ who’s wearing them, they immediately think ‘wow’ coz super pretty boys. ((Side note though imagine oikawa seeing the sweaters and thinking I have those too. Ha! Ugly sweater pretty setter squad???))
Getting teased because of Semi’s weird fashion sense but Suga thinking its actually adorable because cmon Semi is such a pretty boy with a temper
Cute ice cream dates where Semi wants to be cliche and takes a lick of Suga’s ice cream but immediately regrets it coz Suga gets the triple level Chili flavor.
Serious library study dates. Cue Tendou saying “Kinky” with that infuriating smirk and Semi going on defensive coz theyre ‘just’ studying and then Suga raises his eyebrow with a smile thats both innocent and sin
Semi looking for the hottest chili/hot sauce he can find whenever he goes on out of town trips with his team to bring back to suga
Shiratorizawa and Karasuno seniors stalking their dates, like Tendou is all ‘how did Semi get a date with him???’ And Ushijima says, ‘dont worry Semi wont do anything weird to your setter.’ And Daichi replies, ‘uhmmm… We were actually afraid Suga would do something to your setter…’
People surprised at how Suga can calm the hot tempered Semi but even more surprised when Semi says its Suga’s temper that should be feared.
Adult AU! Where Suga takes care of the house chores but its Semi who takes care of the meals. just being really domestic
Imagine though Suga asking Semi out and telling him he’ll pick him up at 7 and reminding Semi to wear something warm. So Semi goes on and wears his blue plaid jumper (he loves print okay) and waits and Suga comes with his big bike and wearing leather and Semi just swoons.
Biker Suga teaching Semi how to ride his bike. Suga swears he’ll never be a passenger on a motorcycle ever again.
Semi insisting on those really (really) fluffy house slippers but asking Suga to buy them coz he wants to have this ‘tough’ image.
Suga thinking how adorable his boyfriend really is despite the tough exterior, glad that only he sees the kawaii things about Semi.
Semi’s contact name for Suga is Koucchi while Suga has him as Eita-Kun <3 - Tendou finds out and teases him for it but instead of caving Semi even adds a “<3”
Shiratorizawa seniors night out + Suga. Suga hits it off with Tendou with their snarky comment duel and now really Tendou can’t believe Semi has gotten Suga. Semi defending himself and Suga saying ‘but he’s far from boring.’ with that cheeky grin.
Volleyball serve practice together and everyone at the public gym surprised coz both just knock down all their target plastic bottles.
- Yamaguchi completely freaks out because he doesn’t know what to buy his bf. He is constantly asking him what he wants every time of the day. Tsukishima usually answers with ‘Just spend the day with me. Maybe a new DVD or sth.’ Which makes Yamaguchi feel even more helpless because a DVD is so… unpersonal!?! And then he’s mad at himself because he can’t think of any present that’ll show his love.
- He decides to put together a big basket of stuff: A DVD, some dinosaur figures, a new scarf, selfmade cookies, lubricant, a mixtape and even a little letter he wrote!
- Tsukishima settles for a new version of Monopoly which they can play together on Christmas Eve and a few pairs of new socks because all of Yamaguchis socks have holes.
- They decided to spend the day at Tsukishimas, because Yamaguchis mother is visiting some friends in a foreign country. So Yamaguchi arrives in the evening after changing his sweater countless times. He wanted to wear a really ugly christmas sweater to tease Tsukishima (with a dinosaur on it) but he got scared that Akiteru would make fun of him or his parents would disapprove. He then decides for simple black skinny jeans and a blue and white striped shirt.
- Tsukishima is visibly flustered because his bf is looking so hot and he himself just put on a random turtleneck sweater he found on the floor that morning. Also, because it’s their first christmas together.
- After eating dinner it’s time for exchanging presents and both Yamaguchi and Tsukishima get really fidgety. Tsukishima, because he suddenly feels bad for not putting that much thought into his gift and Yamaguchi is so sweet and good looking today and he really thought he messed up. And Yamaguchi, because he forgot his present.
- “Tsukki I forgot your present at home!!!“, he explains with bright red cheeks and visibly shocked. Tsukishima on the other side is relieved because maybe his present is bad but at least he has one!
- Kind of ashamed and panicked, Yamaguchi runs out of the house to get it. “I’ll be right back!“ - “Yamaguchi wait! You can give it to me tommorow it’s not a big deal. Just let us enjoy the evening. YAMAGUCHI!“ and both run off into the snow, while Akiteru is laughing and his mother shakes her head, but also laughing.
- Yamaguchi is a man with a plan and Tsukishima can’t stop him so he follows him home. He opens his present and can’t stop grinning when he unwraps the dinosaurs and the lubricant and he is deeply touched when he sees the mixtape.
- But the letter is just too much. Still standing in Yamaguchis kitchen, he holds the letter in one hand and covers his mouth with the other while tears are rolling down his cheeks. Yamaguchis words are so warm and caring and loving, it felt like no one in the entire world could love him as much as Yamaguchi did.
- They start kissing each other and touching and fumbling around while Tsukishima still cries a bit because he simply can’t get over the sweetness of his boyfriend.
- Let’s just say they put the lubricant to good use that night and also completely forgot about Tsukishimas present for Yamaguchi.
the shaws are having a yard sale to clear out a bunch of old junk
some of their clientele include:
a lady in a weed leaf-patterned dress. doesn’t speak english. buys all of papa shaw’s old CDs
a tiny old white lady who buys an old bong and calls it a vase. shaw doesn’t correct her
five different women in big hats who pat shaw on the back, calling her a good salesperson. they don’t notice her physical discomfort, nor do they buy anything
a man drops and shatters three tea cups, then walks away like he didn’t do anythingthere are people in their cars waiting for shaw to set up at 7am. shaw doesn’t know why the hell they’re up so early by /choice/
some lady asks shaw if the giant old lady bras (her late grandmother’s) are lingerie for her boyfriend
john very solemnly tells her yes, they are
root lives across the street and has a Big Gay Crush on a certain shaw comma sameen
shaw and john are close friends, and root doesn’t talk to anyone at school so she doesnt know that he’s really fucking gay so she thinks he’s flirting with shaw
he’s there helping out with the yard sale and root shows up to give him a run for his money
she’s too busy tripping over herself and buying all of shaw’s stuff to notice john’s bf harold is there, literally holding his hand
she doesn’t even look at what she’s buying, just scoops up an armful of trinkets and drops them on the table in front of shaw
“you’re really interested in all this crap?” shaw scoffs
“i am………..a hoarder”
she had a really smooth pickup line she’d spent hours working on (i see one thing im interested in) but it’s much easier to deliver the line to her shampoo bottle in the shower than it is to sameen shaw’s actual face so she panics and here we are
shaw shrugs. it’s hardly the strangest thing root’s ever told her
root ends up having to have her own yard sale a week later to get rid of all the stuff she bought from shaw
shaw stops by and she’s like wAIT a second
“hang on, you’re you making money off my garbage? i had this priced at fifty cents"
"y’know, you really should have a better sense of market values. it’s going for $14.99 on ebay”
“it’s an old dog toy”
“an old dog toy that’s going for $14.99 on ebay”
a couple days later they bump into each other aGAIN and this time root is wearing shaw’s sweater and shaw is like oh shit she looks good in my shit what the hell red alert
only it’s like a really tacky ugly sweater shaw hated bc it made her look shapeless, but on root’s lanky-ass frame it’s very cute and artsy
back to the shaws’ yard sale though! fusco shows up to buy a rusty lamp with no bulb or shade. it belonged to shaw’s great grandmother. when questioned about his intentions for said partial lamp, fusco just shrugs
“ya never know. ‘s good to be prepared”
harper’s the one who shows up wanting to know the background of each item and shaw’s like "we found it in a drawer who cares”
(harper’s really just there to find cool stories and flirt with carter and shaw and root and dani)
zoe is the one that pulls up in her car just to give her pal shaw the thumbs up
shaw’s like “if you really cared you’d buy something” and zoe just laughs and yells back “if i wanted garbage i’d get it at the dump for free” and drives away
carter buys a necklace to support shaw
she sells it for a buck and carter looks at it online, sells it for a hundred
root wasn’t lying, it’s all about the market
john already bought shaw’s old video games, which he cherishes for the childhood nostalgia factor
their entire friendship was initially based on crash bandicoot
finch and john catch leon pocketing some shit. it’s literally worthless but shaw still punches him just on principle
she lets him keep it after that though
dani’s the one who spends the whole time playing with bear and doesn’t buy anything or talk to anyone
martine shows up with lambert and shaw/john/finch are immediately like “we’re closed”
“seriously, shaw? i can see all your stuff–”
“say, finch, what time do we close?”
“i believe we just did, sameen”
martine crosses her arms. “it’s only 9am”
“all sold out” john saya
jeremy gestures to the rest of the driveway, filled with people and clearly not sold out merchandise. “i can see the tables”
shaw finch and john just stare them down
literally the second they turn around to leave john calls his baseball teammate michael cole over to check some stuff out
shaw’s selling a absurd amount of knives because she needs to clear out space for MORE KNIVES
she makes sure to loudly say so as laskey, carter’s lab partner in a&p, walks by with his older brother simmons
they’re both Notorious Pricks
after a few hours shaw’s mom brings everyone lemonade and iced tea and gives shaw a one-armed hug
shaw’s like “mamaaaaaann c'mon, my friends are here”
and john’s like “yEA we are can i have a hug???”
they all get hugs, and harold gets a kiss on the head
mama shaw brings out some treats for bear too so dani can feed them to him
shaw takes a quick pat on the shoulder because her mom respects her limitations
root sees mama shaw as she’s leaving and gets a wave and veritably beams
mama shaw only knows root as (affectionately) “that odd girl from across the street”
