tagging with some words so people can see this

Even if you don’t do art, gifsets, edit videos and photos, write fanfics, you are important and fandom wouldn’t exist without you.

That also doesn’t mean that you’re not an artistic type of person.

There are two types of artistic personality:

a creator, who writes, paints, draw, do videos etc.

and a consumer.

The person, who sees art, for whom it’s made. Without them it wouldn’t matter, because there would be nobody to see the creation. It’s one of the most important roles, but many people do it badly.

How to be a good recipient?

First of all, you need to give feedback. Every time you take time to see/read something. And it can’t be any feedback. It must be good.

Doesn’t matter if it’s a fanart, fic, video, poem or something else. Give kudos. Comment it. Even if you didn’t like it. Especially, if you didn’t like it. It takes only 30 seconds to write something and it shows the author that you saw their work and took time to think about it. It really motivates them.

What you should write?

Well, anything you want. “Great job, keep going!”, “I love the way you did it!”, “Wow, amazing work, I’d love to see more!” is enough. Really.

 Of course, if you decide to say something more it’s great! Authors love to read your thoughts about their work. Tell them about the colours they used, how they match the scene and character, how they build the atmosphere with words, how you love the character development, the typhography they made. Tell them about everything that made you “wow, this is amazing”, about the piece that made you smile or cry or laugh or any reaction you had.

Tell them that you are waiting for sequel for this fic. That you can’t wait for the next fanart of this pairing. That you love seeing their work.

Thank them for it. I know that you know that they do it as a hobby, but thank them for spending their time anyway.

Reading this makes their day. And they’ll tell you that.

Okay, but what if you didn’t like it?

Then you have to write a comment anyway. Criticism is the most important for artist. Without it they can’t make progress.

Writing critique is harder than writing a positive feedback. You have to be precise here. The most important rule is:

DO NOT WRITE “I DON’T LIKE IT”

like really

if you want to write something like that, then better don’t write anything.

You must add what you didn’t like, why, and how they can change that. Constructive criticism is the only one which matters. Otherwise you’ll make them not want to create anymore.

So how good criticism looks like?

“The colours you used don’t fit together. If you used warmer shade of red it would look better!”

“The main character of the story is too perfect, you should add them some flaws to make them more real. Perhaps something with their looks - too thin mouth or some scar? Their personality is also too mary sue. Try to give them some bad traits, maybe they can be blunt or a bit ignorant and listen to nobody’s advice?”

“The person you drew has anatomically incorrect legs - it looks like they don’t have knees. Try to work on it looking at some photos.”

The problem with criticism is that inexperienced artists often take it too personally, like an attack. Good solution is to tell them something nice.

“The scenere is beautiful, but…”
“I love how you write descriptions, but there’s something you need to work on…”

When you write comments it’s also important NOT TO DEMAND ANOTHER PIECE OF ART/CHAPTER/SEQUEL/WHATEVER

It makes them not wanting to contiune their work. So, yeah, encourage them, but not demand. “Is there any chance you’ll do it?”, “I can’t wait for more!”, “Please, continue this, I really want to know what happens next!”

What else you can do as a recipient?

Reblog. Not only like, but also reblog, so more people can see it. Don’t repost and if you have to ALWAYS GIVE CREDITS. And no, “source: tumblr” is not a credit (I feel like I should do another post about it)

Buy. I know all of us are broke, but many artists are really cheap (and that makes me sad). Just ask them to do something customized for you, like keychains or something like that. And pay them for it. Or just donate.

And remember

EVEN IF YOU DON’T CREATE YOU ARE IMPORTANT IN FANDOM AND IT WOULDN’T BE THERE WITHOUT YOU

YOU ARE IMPORTANT

YOU MATTER

(feel free to add some things that I forgot and tell me all mistakes I made, it’s late and my brain is tired so I could use some wrong words but I tried)

likebucky  asked:

Please say something

 I haven’t written fanfiction in a long time. I’m nervous! This may not be very good but please be patient with me. I’m slowly learning. Any feedback is appreciated. Thank you to @sheylann for proofreading this! Also @insomniasix for encouraging me to try writing something! I may open up drabble or requests for practice, but for now I’ll see how this goes and take it from there.

Please let me know if you want me to tag you in the future!

Gladio + reader
355 words

————————————————

“Please say something”, you said as stared at the man you have loved since you can remember. You had just confessed your feelings for him. You had first met Gladio five years ago, while you were working at the Royal Library. You were enthralled with his macho, but calming demeanor. You two quickly become friends and spent more and more time together, discussing the latest novels you had read, watching movies, and generally enjoying each other’s company. You soon realize you wanted more and wouldn’t be able to settle until you told him how you felt.

Gladio stared at you with a surprised looked on his face, all he could whisper was, “_____, what did you say?”. He couldn’t believe what he was hearing. Gladio always prided himself on being a confident ladies man, but when it came to you, he was always so nervous and afraid he would scare you away if he made any sort of move beyond friendship. He didn’t want you to just be “another girl” in his life. He wanted more, he wanted you.

“I love you,” you muttered, “I love you, Gladio.” Another moment of silence passed, as you waited for Gladio to say something. ANYTHING. It felt like an eternity. Afraid you had ruined the your friendship, you slowly lowered your gaze to the ground and began to turn around. You suddenly felt a large hand grasp your shoulder, turning you until you were nose to nose with Gladio.

You could feel his breathe against your lips, as you slowly closed your eyes. You were too afraid to look at him. He was so, so close. You could feel Gladio mutter against your lips, “took you long enough to tell me”, with a nervous chuckle. Gladio’s lips were on yours in a instant. The kiss was passionate, sweet, everything you had wanted. You could feel his emotions being poured into the kiss. As he pulled away, a tear fell from your eye, as it fell down your cheek. The large hand that had previously grasped your shoulder was now wiping away the tear.

“I love you, too, _____”.

anonymous asked:

do u know if ppl are still writing long (over 100k) fics? is there not an audience for it anymore? i feel like i haven't seen a new super long fic in a long time :(

Oh yeah, people are still definitely writing long fics. I’m not sure about other fic rec blogs, but it’s rare for me to take the time to read a fic that’s over 100k. I just don’t have the time, and honestly I prefer fics I can read in one sitting, so you won’t see many on my blog. But if long fics are your thing, there are still some out there to find.

You can actually sort fics on ao3 by length. Here is the remus/sirius tag starting with the highest word count. You’ll have to sift through some fics of other pairings included in there, but then you can find the longest fics in the tag.

Otherwise, Blends by rvltn909 was recced to me the other day, and I know a lot of people love We Were Infinite by WolfstarPups90. Anything by angryspaceravenclaw is good, too, so you could check out this one: Loved In Spite of Ourselves. LadyAmina and irrationalmoony also have an ongoing fic called Of Leaves and Stars.

To EreRi haters ...

Hello tumblr!
You know what, I tried, I really did, but enough is enough, and I just can’t keep my eyes closed for any longer, not even mentioning that it’s already long enough. 

I’d like to have a little speech to every single person who would read this until the end, and you can bet that it’s going to be really long post, because what’s happening and what are you guys saying is unbeliveable and pitiful.

I am an EreRi shiper, Levi roleplayer, fanfic writer - so maybe it sounds rude but I’d say about myself that I quiet understand Levi’s character, since I am roleplaying him for aprox. 3 years. Say whatever you want, I am just gonna say what I think. I think that the philosophy of Levi-sees-Eren-as-a-weapon is wrong, and not just wrong but in my eyes it’s just really stupid.

Are any of you haters reading manga? Not doujinshis in which Levi can be portrayed as an abusive, sadistic character, because that’s just up to the doujinka, but I mean the rall manga, the official thing written by Hajime Isayama? If you do, then may you be so kind and explain to me why you find Levi abusive?

Because he beaten Eren (which I’d say was an order from Erwin, but hey, that’s just my opinion) - and because of that he saves his body from being completly dissect by military police? If it’s abusive to save someone’s life then he is one of hell abuser!

And if we won’t think about the court scene, where are others scene when he was abusive towards Eren? I am sorry but I just can’t seem to remember any other. But I remember scenes where Levi saves Eren lifes or helps him. Let me give you some examples chronologically.

! Spoilers included !

Shingeki no kyojin anime episode 13 - Levi saves Eren, Armin and Mikasa from a titan 


Shingeki no kyojin anime episode 14 - Levi beats Eren and saves him from military police, on top of that he asks Eren if he “hates him?” -> non official: I can’t help myself but this is shown act of care, more likely Levi feels guilty because of something he didn’t want to do, that’s why I think that beating Eren was Erwin’s order. 


Shingeki no kyojin anime episode 19 - Levi speaks to Eren calmly to motivate him and give him some courage to make his decision which he won’t regret. 

Shingeki no kyojin anime episode 22 - Levi saves Eren (and before that Mikasa) from Annie’s mouth, even though he loves cleanliness he holds his body covere in Female type’s saliva 

Shingeki no kyojin anime episode episode 25 - Levi saves Eren from his mindless raging titan body. 

There are from the anime, in manga is a plenty of them, but I’d like to give you 3 greatest proofs that Levi cares for Eren,

Shingeki no kyojin manga chapter 66 page 42 (on mymanga.me) - Levi apologizes to Eren, when Eren is supposed to make another big decision this time about shifting into titan and saves his friends and Captain Levi from Reiss’s crystal chapel. 


Shingeki no kyojin manga chapter 70 page 16 (on mymanga.me) - Eren starts to bleed from his nose, he’s exhausted from using his titan powers. Levi kneels to him and hands him a handkerchief to wipe his nose.


Shingeki no kyojin chapter 75 page 17 - Levi is told (by Erwin) to look after the horses, on which he replies almost angrily if Erwin really mean it to look after horses and  not Eren -> non official: Well if he’s not worried for Eren right now, then I really don’t know.


-> These are only a few proofs which really happened in the manga, and manga is not over yet, so some other may also happen. Now I would like to hear at least 8 scenes where Levi was abusive to Eren, because I can think about only one - which in my opinion wasn’t by his will. So please give me examples when he was sadistic etc by his will, official examples pretty please, since I gave them to you.

-> Also I am not saying that they have to have romantic relationship and have sex with each other, but please stop calling Levi abusive and sadistic and if you do, then have at least 3 examples, because one scene is really not much of a proof. Levi cares for Eren, and if you don’t think so then give me proofs.

Another thing  about which a lot of people are complaining about is that Eren is scared of Levi because he kicked his ass during the court.
*sigh* Does “admiration” means anything to you? Look it up in dictionary pretty please. When you admire someone, like a really lot (and that Eren admires Levi is official btw) of course you’re a little scared of theirs opinion because you want to make an impression on them. Think about it and try to tell me that you won’t be nervous and a bit afraid when you will be about talking to person you admire the most.

Again are you readin the manga? If you do, then be so kind and tell me in which scene (in manga or up to 14 episode) Eren looks like he is afraid of Levi. Because well I probably missed it.

I don’t want you to complain about me giving the official info only from manga, so let’s make a move to official arts, shall we? They’re as well by the official authors of Shingeki no kyojin (not mentioning that one official author -woman- follows twitter of an EreRi artist), so these are only official stuff.
Now take a good look at some of them and tell me in which Eren looks like he is afraid of Levi. Because hey I probably missed this as well. 


And as you’re looking on these official arts then please be so kind and find me one where Levi looks sadistic or abusive towards Eren as well, I’ll wait as long as is needed.

Another thing you probably don’t know I guess. Do you know that EreRi and Riren is not the same thing? It’s still about the two of them, but the ships is different.

EreRi = top!Eren , bottom!Levi  - x - Riren = top!Levi , bottom!Eren - Learn the differences please!

when you’re refering to EreRi being abusive, you probably means Riren. A lot of Riren doujinkas likes to make Levi sadistic and abusive and Eren absolutely innocent. I am not saying that all of them, personally I really like some of Riren doujinkas (even tho I ship only EreRi)

Also doujinshis (UNOFFICIAL pairing manga) and fanarts (UNOFFICIAL pictures by fans) are not official. When you see Levi whipping Eren or tying him up or whatever the author is up to, it’s not official.
No one said that Levi is abusive and sadistic. It’s just up to the imagination of the author, doujinshis and fanarts can be pretty OOC (=out of character) which means that characters behaviour is different from the official one. When doujinka decides that it’s fine for Levi to be 180 cm tall then it’s fine, when doujinka decides that it’s fine for Levi to be blushing and crying then it’s fine. I hope you get me.

What I am trying to say it’s just that you can’t judge official character based on doujinkas picturing of the character. Well you can do it but it’s stupid and it won’t say much, you can just dislikes some EreRi/Riren works but not comparing them to the real characters.
Again I will give you some examples from EreRi and Riren fandom as well. . 


Finally the thing I’d like to say is, tolerate each other guys. Try to understand each other feelings, we’re humans everyone has right to their own opinion of course, but whenever you are about the hate something, then please stop of a moment, think of what you would like to write and ask yourself “is it worth it?”
We all have stuff we don’t like. It doesn’t matter if it’s about religions, food, colors or ships, but imagine how world would look if everyone would complaining and insulting every single thing they don’t like. People wouldn’t be doing anything else then.

It’s not that difficult to just wave hand and go somewhere else, when you see something you don’t like. Why are you even looking in EreRi/Riren hashtag if you aware that you don’t like it, just look at the stuff you like and make yourself happy, stop upsetting yourself on your own purpose, and stop upsetting people who likes stuff you don’t. Be so kind and don’t tag your hate posts as #riren or #ereri, these hahtags are for fans, and fans don’t want to see others hating their ship. Create something like #ererihate and stop ruining our tags.

It would be really fine if we could just understand each other, understand each other ships and say “hey, it’s not my cup of tea, but ship whatever you want man :) ” <- Honestly it’s just a few words, a few words through which you can make people happy and show some sympathy. 

Party embarrassment

Could you do a one-shot where the reader is an avenger but really really shy? And at one of Tony’s parties when he approaches her she becomes nervous because she likes him and she embarrasses herself, so she leaves early and stays up in her room. And later that night Tony goes to see if she’s okay and see what’s wrong and she tells him about her crush on him? Fluff and maybe some smut?(((:

“I swear to god, I can fight the bad guys but I can’t even think of walking in 7-inch heels, what the hell is wrong with me?” You murmured in a low voice as you kept your eyes glued to the floor.
 
It was Tony’s monthly ball he hosted at the tower, everyone was invited and you were part of that everyone. You had got the invitation just a few days earlier and it was brought the host himself. The word was out that you were not fond of parties, and in the years of avenging, you hadn’t gone to a single party so he was making you go there as an obligation as important as saving lives. You just couldn’t say no.
 
The small card of the invitation didn’t say anything about a dress code, but as it had the word “ball” well you thought that a dress would be more than appropriate. You kept a dress in a bag so it wouldn’t ruin due to time effects, it had been forever since you last wore one. You took the comfiest looking shoes and you had your outfit ready.
 
The two days previous to the party you spent hours and hours just looking at YouTube make up tutorials; you had bought one of those palettes girls used to get the perfect make up and you were a quick yet patient learner. The day before the party, you dared to try to do your make up, it took you a good hour to get it perfectly done. You appeared with a paper bag on your face and went to brag to Natasha who was truly impressed. You had just learnt the basics and you were ready to use it for these kind of moments.
 
The party itself was great. Music was great, people were great and you were having the time of your life. The only thing that you were missing was a good drink. The glass on your hand had some fancy drink you were not fond of. You wanted a good old beer and you were on your way of making it.
 
The heels were making things hard, and as you had your eyes glued to the floor you couldn’t see up. You were really near from the bar, but on your way appeared someone out of nowhere, making you spill your whole glass on your dress and the other person had also spilled a bit of their drink on you.
 
“For fuck’s sake, can I be that unlucky?” You growled.
“I’m sorry” A manly familiar voice dragged you out of your whining “You should’ve seen where you walk (Y/N)”
“I know Tony” You pouted, finally looking up “Is just that being pretty is quite painful and dangerous” You pointed at your shoes and your shaking legs “God, I even spilled some on your shirt” You threw your head back in “I’m more than embarrassed right now” You rolled your eyes “Excuse me, I’m gonna go change” You started to walk away but he held your arm tightly.
“You look really pretty” He said before letting you.
 
You blushed uncontrollably as you took off your shoes and made your way again to your dorm. Enough embarrassment for the night.
“(Y/N)?” A soft voice joined by a knock startled you. You were already in your jammies ready to call it quits for the night. You had embarrassed yourself for the hundredth time in front of Tony and you were not going to do it one last night before the night was over… Perhaps you would; the fluffy pink pajama was enough disgrace. You had your hair tied in a high bun and your make up was well placed on a wet towel in the litterbin in your bathroom “Are you awake?”
“Yeah, come in” You sighed.
 
His hair was already messed up and the first button of his shirt was open. His tie had disappeared from his neck and you thought that maybe it was stolen by his pick up for the night. Everyone thought Tony would go back to his old self, but apparently he had learnt a lesson. Soon you realized the tie was wrapped on his hand. He looked incredibly hot now that he wasn’t that formal; not like he didn’t loo hot all well-dressed. This was a nice change.
 
“I thought you’d go back to the party” He said, closing the door with his weight “I kinda missed you back there–I mean, we” He hurried to add “We all did” He stopped for a second to look at you. You were on your worst look, considering how pretty you had been just a few hours ago, you looked like a hobo now. Somehow, a smile still sneaked up his lips “You ok?”
“Yeah, I mean, after embarrassing myself in front of you and the most eccentric people in New York City, I’m totally fine” You shrugged “Are you on your way to somewhere? Cause if you are I don’t want to interrupt you” You asked after a slightly awkward silence.
“I was actually here to see you” He flashed you with a smile and finally took the daring steps to sit on your bed “I kinda wanted to tell you again that you looked really pretty today, well, you are gorgeous”
“Too bad I took it all away” You said almost apologetically “Tony, are you drunk?”
“No” He shook his head and frowned completely confused “Why?”
“There’s this one thing I’ve been wanting to tell you for like a long time, and I need you to listen to me really, really carefully, ok?” He nodded twice so you could go on “This super hard and I swear to god that-”
“Spit it out” He let out a breathy chuckle.
“I kinda, not so kinda, like really like you…” You pursed your lips when you finished, eliciting another puzzled frown from the millionaire “I like you Tony, like a lot”
 
He threw his head back with a great smile on his lips; you were the one perplexed and frowning now. When he looked at you again, he still had that huge grin across his tired face. By then, you held your legs tightly to your chest and rested your forehead on your needs. Tony hopped closer to you and placed his hand on one of the arms that wrapped your shins.
 
He draw formless trails on the portions of skin that the pajama couldn’t reach. You looked up and only found a pair of hazel eyes looking straight at you. The corners of his thin lips were curled up into a soft smile. He was just centimeters away from you and you could feel it in yourself. Your heart pounded in your chest quickly and a buzzing filled your ears. You bit your lip every 2 seconds, only in anticipation. Anticipation because he was leaning closer and closer and closer…
 
His lips were gently pressed against yours. The first few seconds you were like a statue; immobile. Tony tilted his head to the side to gain more access to you, and your hands slowly crept their way up to his unbuttoned shirt. The soft material seemed to blend with your skin. He made you spread your legs and adjusted himself in the space they now granted him. You threw your bock back into the pillows and he followed you.
 
Your legs instinctively wrapped around his waist, only making the kiss deepen as he tentatively made you open your mouth. He rocked his hips gently against yours and maybe it was because he had a belt on, but something was hitting your wetting core and it felt pretty damn good.
 
He had his strong arms on each side of your body, helping him not to crush you on the bed. You held on for dear life to his shoulders and lifted your body just enough away from the bed.
 
His lips left yours as he traced a path of open mouthed kisses down your jaw and to your neck. You arched your back and gasped for some air as his hands slid down to the hem of your ridiculously oversized shirt/pajama.
 
“You should wear things your size, (Y/N)” He crooned when the fabric was covering your face and revealing your torso “And you should get an anti-scar cream too…” He whispered after throwing it onto the floor. Tony took a lustful look at each one of the tiny scars that decorated your chest “How did you get this one?” He asked and gently kissed one that conveniently laid on the valley of your breasts, just above your bra.
“A year ago…” Your breath got caught in your windpipe when he sucked on the wounded skin “We–we were… I–I don’t know” You ran your fingers through his dark hair and pulled his face closer to your skin
 
You hurriedly pushed down his arms his fancy vest and impatiently tore his almost immaculate white shirt apart. His perfectly trained torso had you hypnotized. He complained, but he was silenced by your mouth devouring his. He had some scars too, ones worse than the others. He sank on his knees on the bed and you followed. Your fingers parsimoniously traced the marks on his pecs.
 
“How did you get these ones?” You purred “My god, they give you such a badass look…”
“I’m not sure” He breathed when your lips met the rough skin “I can’t quite remember”
“This one is cute” You said as you leaned to kiss a scar on his neck, eliciting a soft moan from him “Crazy ex-girlfriend?”
“More like a crazy suit” He corrected “Blame it on the Mark 42”
 
You threw yourself to him again and made him fall back onto the mattress. You unmade his belt and he lifted his hips to help you remove it completely. You folded the small leather piece in half in your hand and made it sound loudly. You licked your bottom lip in anticipation and threw it away. You were straddling him and slowly rolling your hips back and forward and in circles. Tony had his eyes shut tightly as he held your hands again.
 
“Don’t be such a tease, (Y/N)” He choked “Let’s just fuck already”
“Is that the way Mr. Stark wants it?” You leaned and spoke softly to his ear, making him shiver with your warm breath.
 
Following a path of kisses and nips on his neck, you kept rolling your hips against his growing bulge. His hands squeezed your ass, making you throw your head back. You helped him get rid of his pants and finally free his erection. You gave him a knowing look, but he had some other plans in mind. As a revenge for his expensive shirt, he ripped in two your cheap booty shorts, exposing your moist pussy.
 
Overpowering you and pushing you against the mattress, he teased your entrance with his thick fingers making you whine in pleasure. Once he made sure you were ready to receive him, he slowly pushed himself into you. This also counted as payback for all the teasing you did to him. You maintained the eye contact every second he took in filling you; your jaw quivered and you bit your bottom lip every once in a while.
 
“Keep looking at me like that and I swear to god I’m gonna come right now” He said before placing a rough kiss on your lips.
 
Once you had adjusted to his size, his pace gradually increased its speed and your sighs became cries and pleas. Tony nibbled the sensitive skin of your nipples, driving you even crazier.
 
After working your breasts with his mouth, he lifted his torso and decided to play with your throbbing clit. You closed your eyes tightly as he drew rough circles making you writhe under him; he was driving you mad and there was no way of over powering him at all. You cursed the Lord’s name uncountable times.
 
Tony hoisted your legs on his inner elbows, reaching a deeper point inside of you. He hit your sweet spot perfectly, and you were truly about to come when he pulled out from you. You looked at him with a frown.
 
“Turn around” He said. His voice was deadly serious. His eyes were dark and filled with lust.
 
You obliged, and he slid inside of you again, way quickly this time. The angle he had gained was completely different, and it was glorious. You felt in outer space now. His fingers traced a way down your spine and to your hips, where he dug his fingers. You arched your back and threw your head back.
 
“Fuck, Tony!” You yelled “I’mgonna…!” Your announcement was left unfinished as the fire that pooled on your abdomen spread throughout every inch of your body. Your head rested on the beddings as your body shook uncontrollably. Tony followed suit a bit later.
 
He pulled out and threw himself on the foot of the king sized bed. The sheer layer of sweat that had found its place on his forehead made gave him a strangely innocent look. You crawled and curled next to him, burying your face in his chest. His heaving chest and beating heart were soothing, but the night was slightly cold.
 
“Wanna crash here for the night?” You sheepishly asked, not daring to look at him.
 
He answered to your question by placing his hand on your chin and kissing your lips tenderly. You didn’t even care about putting your pajamas again. He had already seen you naked and on your worst state. After standing up to turn off the lights, you turned on the lamp of your night table. You rested with your back against his chest while he crossed an arm over you and pulled you closer to him with his hand on your stomach.
 
“Do you like me, Tony?” You asked in a barely audible voice, feeling the guilt of a one-night stand with the guy you liked creeping up your spine “Like… really like me?”
“Why do you ask?” He asked back “Of course I do, silly bird” He nuzzled against your neck “And after you say yes to being my girlfriend, I will buy you jammies of your size, are we clear?”
“How do you know I’m gonna say yes if you haven’t asked yet?”
“(Y/N), after this incredible first time and considering the undeniable chemistry between us, do you want to be my girlfriend?” His voice was serious again, but you could tell he was being honest.
 
You turned around and placed your hand on his chin, the same way he had done with you. You looked at him and smile; then, you leaned to kiss him one last time before calling it quits for the night. You still had a few hours before dawn to have a nice rest. You turned around again and dozed off to his soft breathing. The silly smile on your face lasted until the next morning.

Dialogue - Practice and Revision

One of the things I’ve heard many times in writing classes is that people have a hard time making their dialogue sound real and their characters sound different.  I’ve had these problems myself as well, falling into one pattern of speech or making my characters sound too much like me.  Here are a few ways to improve how you write and revise dialogue.

Analyze how people around you talk

What makes the way your best friend talks different from the way your mother talks?  You’ve probably met a stranger that spoke with a very different rhythm from most people you know.  You’ve also probably met someone from a different part of the world who uses phrases that you don’t use.  And your best friend probably uses some phrase all the time, but you’ve never noticed because you’re around them a lot.  What do you hear them saying a lot that other people don’t say?  How do the different people in your life talk differently?  This is the first step in understanding the different ways your characters talk.

Who are your characters talking to?

You’ve probably noticed throughout your life that people change the way they talk depending on who they’re speaking with.  Your mother might be condescending when she talks to her children, but she might not talk to her coworkers that way.  And if she talks to her coworkers that way as well, that tells a lot about the kind of person she is.  Maybe your best friend uses a lot of slang when they talk to you, but when they talk to someone they don’t know they use “proper” language.  Your characters are going to do this too.  They won’t always approach conversation the same way with every person they encounter.

Consider dialect and grammar

Real people don’t always use proper grammar.  Neither will your characters.  Some people have certain dialects depending on their regions.  The same is true of your characters.  Sometimes it is worth it to throw these tidbits into your dialogue.  Be careful, though, as too much inclusion of a character’s dialect or speech tic can be distracting and confusing to a reader.  Often you can include this information in one line of dialogue and never mention it again or only include it a precious few times throughout your entire story.  Other, less-distracting ways of showing these differences are through word-choice.  For example, some people say “pop” and some people say “soda.”  Some people call all forms of pop and soda “coke.” Simple differences like this can do a lot in making sure your character’s dialogue is unique.  If you are writing a fantasy novel, you’ll need to think about how different regions have different word-choice and other language barriers.

Speech Verbs

It is very tempting to use “he whispered” or “she replied” when writing dialogue, especially since we see this so often in many published novels.  However, the form “he said” is really just a tag for which character is talking.  In a two-way conversation, the “he said” tag will get entirely skipped over if your dialogue is doing its job - if you character’s dialogue is unique and recognizable.  As such, you should eliminate any “whispered, replied, asked, shouted” where you can.  Replies and questions in particular are obvious - the reader knows that a character is asking a question or replying to a statement made by another character.  It’s unnecessary to tell the reader this.  (If your character is asking a question and that’s not clear to the reader, you may need to work on your dialogue there.)  In the case of shouting or whispering or any other speech verbs, you should first try to make the way your character is speaking obvious through the words they are saying.  This is not always easy to do and takes a lot of practice, but it will improve the quality and realism of your dialogue in the long run.

Line up your dialogue

If you are worried that two of your characters sound too similar, pluck the dialogue from your story - leave all description and dialogue tags out.  Read only what is within your quotations, what your characters are saying.  Can you tell which character is talking?  Does the dialogue sound like it’s running together?  Could it all be said by one person?  It helps to read the dialogue out loud when you do this.  It might also help you to have someone else read it and ask the same questions.  This can also aid you with the point I discussed previously.  Does the dialogue inform the timbre or tone of voice of your characters?  Can you tell what they are feeling with how they are speaking and what they are saying?  Depending on your answers to these questions, you may need to go back and revise your dialogue.

Direct and indirect conversation

Sometimes you’ll find that people don’t always converse directly.  What I mean by this is that sometimes a person will say one thing and the other person will reply with a seemingly unrelated statement.  This all depends on who the person is, what the conversation is about, how they feel, whether or not they are trying to avoid a topic, etc.  Your characters will sometimes encounter these situations.  Maybe they are asked a question, and, instead of answering, they change the topic.  Maybe they answer the question but without much detail.  Maybe they answer the question with as much detail as they can.  Ask yourself what kind of person your character is and consider those questions.  When would this character not answer a question?  How would they avoid a topic?  When would they be brutally honest?  Think of the dialogue between two characters as a game - how they play determines the overall tone of the conversation, whether your characters are fighting, flirting, venting, making idle conversation, etc.  Just like a game, sometimes one character is going to have the upper-hand.  Not all conversations are balanced - there will be times when one of your characters is dominating a conversation.  And remember that how your characters play is going to be different for each character.  No two characters will respond to a situation in the same way.  This is key when writing realistic, distinct dialogue.

JASHI

Wait…so even if Jack was a grown adult…25 yrs say. And Ashi was a child at some point….according to all the antis, their relationship would STILL be pedophilia when she’s an adult because there’s a 20+ age gap??? 50 years had passed at the beginning of the show. That means that atleast 20 or so(Ashi is a A WOMAN. Looks, sounds, Jack clearly says woman) years prior to that, Ashi and her sisters were born. SO, if Jack aged, he would be lyk….55 or so at their birth. (Forgive my math: 25+30) Even tho he’s ageless???? And doesn’t even belong in that time period????? THAT somehow makes it gross and deserving of all that hate? People know that consenting adults can be in a relationship even with age gaps…right??? I feel like if the genders were reversed, no one would have any issues. Or if he was lyk …a vampire or some supernatural creature, nobody would have anything to say. Why the hell can people not ship whatever they want without ppl flooding the tag with their hate and antiposts? Why are people so obsessed with this father daughter thing (don’t get me started on how creepy I think that wording is) that they feel the need to flood the Jashi tag with hate?? Like…it’s a cartoon. LET PEOPLE ENJOY THINGS. No one knows enough information about the show to come to any conclusions that any shios are problematic or anything. Like, I see people shipping Jack with Aku or Scaramouche??? NOBODY bothers them! Ughh…I hate this hell site sometimes.

unpopular opinion part 46484949

Everyone of you is entitled to do what you want this is out of question. But can i be honest? Not seeing eventually CG video is a mistake. We were so upset when some chill boycotted 5x17 of Glee written by Chris because of Klaine. Why do the same with Every single night because the people in it? It’s my opinion that we have to be better than them and better than what they think we are.

So i wanna say to the people following me that not only i will see it but i will reblog it and simply because i wanna support Darren. So I will tag it with ESNB: use this word in your blacklist if you don’t wanna see it. 

:)

I want to try something

 I see a shit ton of those fic rec posts,but it’s always the same writers. Or the people that make the lists only include their friends which is bullshit btw. 

So I’m gonna try to put out weekly lists (every sunday) with writers that don’t get a lot of notes. So if you or anyone you know of write supernatural fanfiction and usually get under 100 notes, tag me so I can shine some light on some amazing fics.

I’m tagging yall cause I know you’ll spread the word:

@senselesssamii

@policeofficerdean

@daydreamingintheimpala

Think before you post.

I’m not going to name any blogs, just so they can have some respect for themselves, because they are apparently too low on it to give it out to other people, but why do you feel like you have the need to reblog something, just to tell people how shit their post is?

Whether it’s just a small quote or a 20 000 word story, that they probably used a lot of time, energy and love for?

Not only in my blog, but I’ve seen quite a lot of this on other’s blogs, you look at the tags, and see that it says “this is so fucking cringey, don’t read. The biggest shit I’ve ever seen.” Do you really fucking think people aren’t going to read it if you have reblogged it? You are just making sure more people are going to see it.

If you don’t like it, don’t reblog it, or don’t make a fucking post about it. I have better things to do than read a text where you’re crying about how bad someone’s work is. Just shut up about it, or if it’s really that necessary, send constructive criticism. That’s a way you can get your point across without sounding like a fucking idiot.

This makes me so mad, think before you say.

Be nice, love, and respect other people and their work.

Thank you for your time.

Back in 2010 when I was a baby artist I had a hard time coming up with interesting ideas so I made a list themes to choose from when I got stuck. I was reminded of it today when I mentioned the upcoming October prompts and thought it would be cool to post them here for other people to use.

I’ve made some changes but the list is basically the same, 100 base themes plus 15 optional modifiers. A few words are similar but can have different meanings depending on your interpretation, and there are some combinations that don’t really work together (Disney already made a movie about romantic stray dogs) but overall it’s worked well for me.

Anyway, enjoy.

I know u like his arms, but consider: Adam's shoulders that can, tbh, only be described as godlike.

Oh dont get me wrong, I love every inch of that man’s physique.
It’s just that his arms in particular stood out to me in that shot. I dunno, his muscles aren’t INSANELY defined and cut like a lot of other male actors, and quite honestly thats why I love them so much. It’s not for show. It’s not too much, it’s just enough. Yet undeniably solid and powerful.

There are no words in any language I know to accurately describe my feelings about his shoulders… or anything else. honestly most of the time when I see a super nice picture of him I just kind of silently scream at myself. Nothin I could type out in tags can convey the feeling XD

It’s okay to identify as queer! But if an LGBT+ person asks you not to use it when talking to or about them, don’t use it. If someone asks you to tag it so they don’t have to see it, tag it.
Although some of us are reclaiming the word, it is still often used as a slur, which can be upsetting or even traumatic to read/hear. And we need to respect their choice!
If you don’t use/identify with the word, do not get mad at people who do identify with it! For some people, like myself, they use it because they’re still figuring out their identity! They may also have other reasons as well that we as a community need to respect!

Kamunami Week coming soon!

Rules:

1. Whether you choose SDR2 (Super Dangan ronpa 2) or DR3 (Danganronpa 3) Kamunami, it does not matter. Whichever one you prefer is fine. If you like the AI version of Chiaki better than human Chiaki, that’s fine. It still counts regardless.

2. If you are late in submitting your work, be it a fanfiction, a drawing, a creative video, homemade item etc., it’s fine. I will accept late submissions. I want those who are participating to take as much time as they need to work on whatever it is they are contributing. Be sure to tag your work with the tag: “kamunami week”, so I can find it.

3. Remember, this is Kamunami Week, not Hinanami Week. People have different interpretations on how they ship Kamunami. That’s fine. I’m not going to tell you how to ship. However, if you are going to use some Hinanami undertones, be sure that it’s not overpowering Kamunami. In other words, don’t make it 90% Hinanami and only have a bit of Kamunami somewhere in your work. I will not accept that. Kamunami needs to be the main focus of your work. If you do use some slight Hinanami be sure to tag it in there. If I see Hinanami and you don’t tag it, I will not count it. You may post it, but I will not count it towards Kamunami Week.

4. Respect other people’s creations. This is not a contest. This is about expanding Kamunami.

5. You do not have to participate for all the prompts. If you want to, that’s awesome, but you are not required to do all of them. Just the ones you want.

6. If you have questions about any of the prompts/themes or rules, feel free to message me.

7. NSFW will not be allowed.

Day 1 (Feb 13th): Flower Crowns

Day 2 (Feb 14th): Max Affection
