secret scripts

The thing is, unlike novels and that weird webcomic your cousin publishes on DeviantArt, screenplays are rarely written by a single person. While only one or two people may get credit for it in the film’s final list of credits, uncredited (but well-paid) script doctors are routinely brought in to punch up dialogue, resolve plot holes, and sometimes rewrite entire swaths of the story. It’s sort of like when your less-literate friends ask you to help them with their cover letters.

Fisher was one of Hollywood’s top script doctors for 15 years. Some of her more famous movies include the aforementioned Hook, Sister Act, Last Action Hero, The Wedding Singer, Coyote Ugly and Scream 3. And yet, not even she could save the inexplicable dialogue that came spilling out of people’s heads in the Star Wars prequels.

Sweets Songs For Autumn

Thanks to @autumn-of-ilvermorny for the ask about the sweets songs! I hope this helps. <3

I end up being a terrible grumpy old man about it, phoning them and saying ‘Just send me some paper! I can’t deal with this!’

Rune Magick

Hey all! So today I’m going to teach you about runes and how to use them in everyday magick. There are, of course, many different types of runes but for this we are talking about Germanic runes. 

So, first off I’ll tell you a little about what runes are. Runes are a form of script, dating all the way back to 150 AD. They were eventually replaced by the Latin alphabet somewhere around 700 AD. Because they are so ancient, some witches use them not only as a secret script but also in their magickal workings. 

You might be asking, “Well how do I do that? Wouldn’t that be like using the letter A?” Well, yes and no. I have no doubt someone could find a way to use the Latin alphabet for magick, but in this case runes are more… symbolic I guess? Take the rune peorth for example (see “p” above). It resembles a cup lying on its side. When the opening points to the right, it represents birth and beginnings. When the opening points to the left, it represents death or endings.

Each rune symbolizes a specific thing or idea. Say, for example, you wanted a quick charm for safe travels. You could draw Raidho ® somewhere on your person as it is the rune of travel. To use rune magick simply draw, paint, or inscribe it where you want to use it. You can also “draw” it in the air or on an object/person with your energy. 

 Below is a list of all the runes, their names, and their uses/meanings (order is from left to right).

Relationship status: Told myself I wouldn’t pursue a relationship until I finish this draft of my novel, but there’s an engineer sending me elephants and he’s kind of cute, so. We’ll see. 

Favourite Colour: Symbolically, Red. Because passion/love/cherry-flavored things. But like, aesthetically? I prefer writing everything in purple pen.

Pets: My roommate had a cat, once, and my sister has a dog. And lots of my friends are having babies. I’m excellent at loving creatures that I’m not responsible for. 

Last song: Liability, by Lorde. A friend posted a cover of it on Facebook, so I looked up the original. The cover was better. (No offense, Lorde.)

First Fandom: The only fandom I would say I actively belong to is Harry Potter. Harry Potter is my Past, Present, and Future. I’ve watched every episode of Potter Puppet Pals, all three musicals, and own all eight terrible movie adaptations. (jk… the first four don’t suck.) I’ve even read Dramione fan-fiction. That is the only fan-fiction I really get into, actually (sorry if any of you are fanfic writers… it’s just not my thing!)

Hobbies: Having friends. Eating full meals at regular times. Personal hygiene. (Writing and reading are not hobbies; they are life.)

Currently reading: Beautiful Creatures, by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, STILL, because it’s really long, guys, I’m sorry. And on Sundays (the day of rest from reading YA), I try to read Stephen King’s Under the Dome. Which is, believe it or not, even longer. I’m on page 600, and I’ve been reading it for like three years. 

I don’t have a lot of followers yet. So. @pagesofangels @glorious74 @writebruh @theprincessandthepen @fallenstarsandfiredemons @interruptedreading

i was talking with @ialpiriel and @bisexualpiratequeen about Weird Puritan Names In the Fallout Setting and we concluded that Preston Garvey’s siblings all have overwrought Christian names and he only narrowly escaped their fate because he was named after Great Grandma Garvey’s Second Husband (God Rest His Soul, He Weren’t Much Of A Father To Your Grandpa But He Was A Good Man And Lord Knows He Didn’t Deserve To Fall Into The Grain Bin And Die Like He Did)

the siblings Garvey are, in order from oldest to youngest:

Cillian talks Nazi hunters, Peaky Blinders and… Harry Styles? In the Sept 3 issue of RadioTimes. (Do the right click thing to read full size). New stuff:

Dunkirk: ” He won’t share anything about the plot, not even his character’s army rank. “The reason why Chris has always been so ‘secretive’ about his scripts is that it just ruins the experience. And I agree with him. The word ‘spoiler’ says it all. The anticipation is amazing, so let’s just wait and see, and all will be revealed. With the way Chris is shooting, all on IMAX 65mm cameras and in the real locations, it should be pretty powerful.

What’s next: Right now he’s taking some time off. He was interviewed in Dublin just before heading to Greece for a family holiday. After promoting Anthropoid he’ll start promoting another film, Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire, which closes this autumn’s London Film Festival. Then next year he’ll be shooting S4 of Peaky Blinders.
