  • I bought a bit of land and made a little mine before buying a truckload of coal and just stiking it in the walls. Then, I compressed it all into diamonds.

i think the way a lot of you, and by you i mean goyim, interact with jewish headcanons is very very telling even if you don’t realize it is. when you try to disprove them, when you only headcanons characters you don’t like as jewish, when you only have one jewish headcanon, when you headcanon someone greedy and/or untrustworthy as jewish… that tells us something about how you view us.

this is ok for goyim to reblog but not comment on.

pastelxemory  asked:

Hello! I was wondering if you had any tips on making filler chapters more than fillers? So they could contribute to the plot more instead of just being there for the sake of being there? Thanks in advance!

I’m not sure what you mean by “filler.” You can write filler in a first draft, but your final, polished version should have exactly zero filler. Every scene, every chapter, every line of dialogue should advance your plot or help define who your characters are or what your setting is. 

What I’m hoping you might mean are those things I call “stitch chapters” between larger set pieces or chapters where Very Big Things happen. Times when your characters slow down, take a break from the action, maybe have a long conversation about the state of their world. 

Stitch chapters need to be like every other chapter: relevant to plot and characterization. But if your characters just finished storming the castle, maybe your next chapter needs to be them talking about dividing the spoils. Is one character greedy? Someone burned out on warfare? Is it time for your MC to stand up and be a leader in peacetime instead of just a general in wartime? 

If you have a chapter you realize is filler, make a copy of your story and remove everything you think is filler. SAVE IT separately. Then, read your newly pruned story. If the plot makes sense without it, then it’s true filler and you should leave it out. 

If you’re looking to stretch out a story, maybe what you’re realizing is that you need a subplot or another character arc. There’s only one post in our subplot tag, but it has some good thoughts and the first two links are to other lists of links. 

You can find ways to help fix laggy sections in pretty much any of our major tag sections.

Lingfan Week: Mask & Greed

“I may have the money, the status, and the power, but much like the greedy one, I desire for more.

This might be too much to ask, but if you will, should you allow someone as greedy as I am to become your husband?”

Original idea for this prompt was something completely different, but then inspiration hit me and it is what it is now. I have one more art submission for LFweek, which is also my last one. Hoping to pass it before the month ends!

VERY VERY many thanks to my friends who looked over and helped me come up with the appropriate text for this (because I sure am NOT a writer), to @manalfedz​, @gabbiki​, and @sera-luna-stella​ who, in this order, gave me the main idea, the line for the text, and polished the it to what it is now! And to @pahndah​ and @thecoolandspicyotaku​ for checking if IC~ (I’ve consulted a LOT of people for JUST the text alone orz), and to @kriselledraws​ and @gabbiki for looking over the anatomy, absolutely Gabbii for being so patient with me on this one!

in trials of apollo I really want someone to say bisexuals are greedy so apollo can reply “no, I am greedy. bisexuals in general are just normal people. but if you want to define sexualities by a god’s greediness you might as well start with heterosexuality. I mean, have you met zeus?”

Klangst!?

Season 4 spoilers beware.

“Are you really just going to leave?”

Keith winced as he heard the voice. Everyone knew that he was going to leave for the Blade soon. They knew that he wouldn’t be around the castle anymore. So it really shouldn’t have come as a shock. It’s shouldn’t have, if he hadn’t tried sneaking out in the middle of the night. What could he say, old habits die hard. 

With a very audible sigh, he brushed his bangs back and turned to face the only one who could manage to annoy him within seconds of talking. “What do you want Lance?”

Lance McClain, the flirtiest, most reassuring, most amazing person in the universe, looking back at Keith. “You aren’t even going to say good bye?”

“I did.” Keith drew his eyes away. “We all group hugged, Shiro said he wouldn’t stop me. What do you call that?”

“That’s not a good bye mullet!” 

“What more do you want?”

“Is this even about the Balde of Marmora? Why does it have to be you? Voltron needs you. I need you!” Lance yelled at him. The cuban had always yelled stupid insults at him or tried to push his buttons the wrong way, but this was different. 

“Voltron has the leader it needs. And joining the Blade of Marmora is the only way I can help, right now.”

“You could take the Red Lion back.”

“No.” 

Lance’s brow furrowed even more if that was even possible. “Why not?”

“The Red Lionn is yours now. He wants you to be his pilot.” Keith muttered. “Besides, we already talked about this.”

“This isn’t what I wanted. Allura is making great progress with her lion, and Shio took his back, you need to be the red paladin. The team needs you, the universe, everyone.”

“And I’ll be helping in my own way.” Keith threw the bag of clothes into his personal ship. His back to the angry teen. 

“I need you.”

He stopped at the timid sound of Lance’s voice. Even when the blue paladin was worried about losing his place, he didn’t sound like that. He sounded lost, confused. Something that someone who shown as bright as the sun should never sound like.

“I need you. Who else am I going to make fun of? Who else am I going to train with? Who else is going to help me swim in that stupid pool? Who else is going to drive me to keep going? Who else am I going to chase after? You’re already so far out of my reach! First it was the garison, now this? Just!” His voice cracked. “Just… stay and show me the way. You’re the leader now. At least to me.”

Keith wanted to turn and face Lance. He wanted to tell him he was wrong. They were both still fighting in the war. They were both still on the same side. But that would make leaving even harder. Keith knew how the Blade worked, and just in case, this needed to be a clean break.

“There will always be someone else for you to do all of those things with. And you have a better leader now.”

Too often when people talk about mental recovery, they mean that you should become an altogether useful tool to society again. But what if someone doesn’t agree with the greedy goals of this society. Is there another society to go to?

the “Lonely Traveller” novels, by Sereno Sky

I’ve been thinking a lot about the fall of Khazad-dum to Durin’s Bane. And honestly I’m very angry with how the Dwarves are blamed for this: that they were greedy and so they got what was coming. That’s more or less how the narrative on this goes. I’ve seen this thought in analyses I’ve read and it’s pretty plain in the books. Look at this quote from Gandalf:

“The Dwarves tell no tale; but even as mithril was the foundation of their wealth, so also it was their destruction: they delved too greedily and too deep, and disturbed that from which they fled, Durin’s Bane.” (Fellowship of the Ring)

I’m not saying that the mining of the Dwarves didn’t cause the Balrog to reappear (whether the mining woke him up from sleep or made it possible to escape from where he was). But I’m angry at they way it’s talked about. No one knows better than the Dwarves the calamity that waking the Balrog was. But instead of talking about how it was a tragic accident, people talk about how it was the greed of Dwarves that caused it and I take serious issue.

First off, how could the Dwarves have known the Balrog was there? Do you think they would have kept mining in that direction if they knew? How were they supposed to know how deep was too deep? It would have been bizarre for them to all of a sudden be like “ahh yes, we’ve dug deep enough, no more mithril mining for us.” I don’t think the other races of Middle Earth, especially Elves, would appreciate that (I’ll talk about this a bit later).

So it comes back to greed and the idea that coveting something so much will ultimately lead to your downfall. It’s a popular trope (the trope is literally named Dug Too Deep and I’ll give you one guess at the trope namer) and honestly, it’s a tired one. Almost everything bad that has happened to Dwarves has supposedly happened out of their greed, at least according to outside perspectives on the events. A dragon came to Erebor resulting in a huge number of deaths and the subsequent exile of the survivors? Yeah, all because King Thrór was too greedy and coveted riches too much. Thorin and his nephews died in Battle of Five Armies? Definitely because Thorin got too greedy with the gold in the mountain and coveted the Arkenstone too much. A Balrog reappeared and drove the Dwarves of Khazad-dum out? Well, you can see where I’m going. The idea that bad things happen to Dwarves simply because they were greedy is not a unique idea and it is also an antisemitic one.

Another thing that irks me is how sort of high and mighty people of other races get when talking about it. Like I mentioned before, you get the feeling that people don’t really sympathize with the fact that a hell demon just appeared in their home and killed dozens of their people, including their king, and drove the survivors out of a place sacred to their people. Honestly, what the fuck? How can you reduce that level of horrifying tragedy down to “they were greedy and that’s why this happened”? 

And beyond the seeming total lack of sympathy for the Dwarves, consider the fact that there was probably a huge market for mithril. We know the Elves wanted it:

Mithril! All folk desired it. It could be beaten like copper, and polished like glass; and the Dwarves could make of it a metal, light and yet harder than tempered steel. Its beauty was like to that of common silver, but the beauty of mithril did not tarnish or grow dim. The Elves dearly loved it, and among many uses they made of it ithildin, starmoon, which you saw upon the doors.” (Fellowship of the Ring)

So of course the Dwarves were mining for more. Lots of people in Middle Earth wanted it. It probably brought in a lot of wealth, and I’m going to argue that prosperous Dwarven colonies increase the prosperity of surrounding settlements. Look at how while Erebor was wealthy, men in Dale were also prosperous based on trade. Even the Elves of Greenwood were probably better off while Erebor was prosperous. But besides that, why would the Dwarves randomly stop mining for mithril when there was such a demand for it? It wouldn’t make sense and I have no idea how that could really be called Dwarven greed. Besides, who is giving these weird retellings about how their greed for mithril caused the Balrog to wake up? Not Dwarves, that’s for sure, and throughout the books other races continuously have poor opinions of the Dwarves and treat them terribly. So I’m extremely skeptical of this idea.

Basically, I seriously mistrust anything an Elf or Man has to say about Dwarves and take it with a huge grain of salt because they have continuously demonstrated an unfounded disdain towards them. How can they blame the fall of Khazad-dum on the Dwarves getting greedy for mithril when they themselves were creating a large demand for mithril? How is it that all they can say about the fall of Khazad-dum is that the Dwarves were greedy? So many Dwarves died. The ones that didn’t lost their home. All Dwarves lost a sacred place. Citing greed as the reason for the Balrog every time the story is told is heartless, misguided, and antisemitic.

hear you me (a cinderella story au): chapter one

fandom: riverdale

pairing: jughead jones and archie andrews, betty cooper and veronica lodge

word count: 7k

on ao3

summary:

Jughead Jones is antisocial and brooding, invisible to everyone except for his bestfriend Betty Cooper who works on the school newspaper with him. Due to his fathers death, he’s forced to be under the care of his step-mother, Penelope Blossom; doing chores for her and her twins, Cheryl and Jason.
Archie Andrews is Riverdale High’s star quarterback, who is adored by all. But despite his father’s wishes to work for the family business, Archie secretly aspires to be a musician.
Under the name ‘burgerboy’, Jughead confides to 'musicman’, someone he met on an online form for LGBTQ+ teens; which eventually turns into an online relationship. He has no idea that 'musicman’ is Archie Andrews, his ex-bestfriend who doesn’t even remember he exists.

a/n: hey guys! this fic was inspired by this gifset that compared jarchie’s make up scene in 1x02 to a cinderella story, and since i have no self control, i created this. please let me know what you think!

Jughead Jones was seven when his dad died. Back then he wasn’t known as Jughead, but by his birthname, ‘Forsythe Pendleton Jones III’, although Jughead didn’t really think that name was much better. ‘Jughead’ was a teasing name his step-siblings, Cheryl and Jason Blossom called him once their parents had married the year prior to his dad’s death. After his dad died, he let his real name die too- ‘Forsythe’ constantly reminded that his father was gone, as he was named after him. He would never forget what happened that June day, partly due to the nightmares he still had; but also because he was the last one to talk to his dad before he passed.
