that sounds too much like

Headcanon : Sasuke that I always think he'd be before Sarada.

Sasuke seems so cool, silent and distant outside even when he’s walking beside Sakura.

He doesn’t speak much, sometimes he just naturally holds her shoulder, bends over slightly to hear her better, puts a hand on her back to gesture her on something, puts a coat over her when it’s windy, holds the door or grocery bags for her. Everything mostly in silence, while Sakura doesn’t mind one bit and speaks cheerfully most of the time.

However when there are only two of them at home, Sasuke just sticks close to Sakura. He talks a little more, but still not much. His favourite is snuggling into her bosom or neck every possible second with big arms holding her tightly. Sometimes Sakura finds it a little difficult doing her housework with Sasuke being glued to her body.

Surprisingly, without any confirmation sound from him, Sakura comes to realise that Sasuke likes being spoiled by her. Like let her wash his hair, blow-dry it later (while still burying his head on her lap), hug him and stroke his back. He loves having her slender yet warm arms circling around his broad shoulders, her chin on the top of his head, while he slowly takes in her scent on her collar and fluffy chest where her heart lays.

He feels comfortable being surrounded by her, by her softness, her warmth and her peace. He feels protected, by something unseen, that he seems to forget for too long. Like it’s okay to relax, set loose to your usually tense muscles, it’s okay to be free from any worry or even thinking. You’re protected. She’s here covering for you. She won’t let anything hurt you, anymore. As much as how he’s gonna protect her with all his might once they’re out there.

But here, she’s his guardian instead. That’s why drowning in her warmth, snuggling to her heart and heat are so right to him. They all deliver to him the same message.

“It’s okay to be happy.”

She’s his happiness. He will never let go. Even if some days she decides to leave (that he knows is not gonna happen anyway), he won’t let her. He never let her. She’s his. Only his. His everything.

Without her, his world will fall down again.

That’s why he’s gonna cuddle in her lap like this anytime possible. Forever. This is his place and no one else can take it from him, even her.

Sasuke likes being spoiled by Sakura. And Sakura of course, like spoiling her Uchiha too.

He hardly says anything at all, but she understands everything he wants.

(Nevertheless, when Sarada is born, Sasuke surely has a hard time sharing his favourite spot.

But he compromises, when Sakura, blushing hard like a cute tomato, whispers to his ear, promises some “more attractive” treatments to him every night.)

Met Mr. Michael Shuman again after the killer @minimansions show tonight at The Glass House in Pomona. He’s always such a sweetheart and at least pretends he remembers me each time, which is always pretty special to me. What a musician, man. #minimansions #michaelshuman #mikeyshoes

What INTROVERTS Need To Understand About Introverts (as written by an introvert)

1. Dude, NOBODY LIKES SMALL TALK. It’s fucking boring, extroverts think so too, but you do it anyway because it’s polite. It’s not an “extrovert skill,” it’s a SOCIAL SKILL, and you should probably work on it a little bit so you don’t sound like a dick all the time. The idea is that small talk is supposed to lead to a BETTER conversation.

2. You having a lousy time at this party is BUMMING EVERYBODY OUT. Parties are supposed to be fun! When that extroverted friend comes over and tries to get you to dance, and you don’t want to dance, and all you can think about is how much you don’t want to dance and how resentful you are that your friend is trying to make you do it anyway, your friend

stay-au-ponyboy asked:

O-okay um well as you can probably tell, I'm not a very confident person, but I really want to be a writer and I've written several short stories and poems but every time I try to show it to someone whose opinion I value (my dad, brother, mom, aunt, etc) they either shoot it down or not even read it. I know it shouldn't bother me, but unfortunately I'm really sensitive :/ basically I'm asking how I can become more confident as a writer?

Hello there, understandably-shy writerly friend~ ♥︎

I absolutely understand where you’re coming from. Writing is hard, and even more so if you live in an environment that may hinder your craft :c

Thankfully for you, this is something that I’ve touched on in the past. Here are a few helpful links:

If you’re going to read ONE of the links, read the last one. It is seriously my best reply (to date) about gaining confidence. Seriously, I could go on and on repeating everything I said— but this is not the place for that.

Because there’s something else I want to talk about.

You need to develop a thick skin if you want to be a writer, because (just like you have no control over how people will react to your work) you don’t have any control over what people will say or do. There are nasty people out there in the world, and eventually someone will look at your art and tell you things like…

  • It sucks (or YOU suck)
  • It’s bad (or YOU are a bad writer)

And so on. You have no control over this. Great writers, and awful writers alike, have all had to deal with this. What I want you to understand is that you’re not alone in this struggle— this is something that all writers have to deal with. The successful ones (and the ones we remember) are those who can overcome this.

Let me explain…

Do you like RPGs? I love RPGs. I grew up playing them— and sometimes I find my logic to be broken down into RPG terminology. So, let me explain to you why I think a thick skin is important.

If life was a video-game (particularly an RPG) and your ‘class’ was that of a writer, the way in which you succeed in life is by improving your ability to write (your writing skill). Everyone focuses on this, on their craft. It makes sense. It’s like upgrading your attack attribute. People forget about defense, though. Your ‘thick skin’ (or the ‘confidence’ skill if we continue with the analogy). I have seen tons of people who are great at their craft, but as soon as they get their first 1-star review (and trust me, it’s coming, It’s going to happen sometime) they give up. They literally have to step away from what makes them happy because they can’t handle it. They are practically Glass Canons, they write good stuff (really good stuff) but they have no defense whatsoever.

I am the #1 person to tell you to write all the time, because I truly believe that the only way you will get better is by writing. But, even so, I have to admit that while buffing up your attack stat may seem like the cool thing to do… you need to buff up your defense too. It’s a killing field out there, and if you want to survive you are going to need a thick skin.

Now, how can you go about doing that? Read my article on confidence. You need to understand that your work is not an extension of your persona. And…

Learn to break down the information that is given to you. When people say things like “This book sucks” what they are really saying is “I didn’t like this book, but I don’t want to be held responsible for my opinion so I will claim that my words are objective and ultimate.”

Seriously. Learn to break down what people say. I keep saying this about characters, but it also applies to real life: what people say is a DIRECT reflection of how they view the world, and a reflection of their own most intimate persona.

I can tell you, with confidence, that most of the time people are not effectively trying to be mean you (or your writing). Everyone is wrapped up in their own lives, and (sadly) most people don’t know how to step out of their problems and instead go about mistreating other people as a way to combat the problems they’re not actively working on.

What I am getting to is that… the world is full of people with problems. Some of those people are nasty. Most of the nasty people would rather say mean things than dealing with their problems (because it’s easier to not fix problems than fixing them). You, though, have NO control over this. So, the best thing to do is to work on your defense stat. Gain a thicker skin. As you level up in life the struggles only get harder. If you want to be successful (at ANYTHING in life) you need to be able to take punches.

I hope this helps! Be strong, writerly friend. I know you can overcome this~ ♥︎

Beverly isn’t necessarily romantically interested in Will but she still feels very protective of him and invested in him and yet is so direct as a human being that she can’t just let things slide, she has to call him out, she has to talk about it, she has to confront Will.

anonymous asked:

hello! your blog is amazing and your answers have motivated me to write, so thank you. here's the thing: i've been wanting to be a writer since i was little, but when i told my parents in the first place, they said i couldn't do it as job, that i couldn't earn enough money by writing alone, unless i wrote a huge bestseller or something. writing is a hobby to them, and so, i don't feel like i can say that this is what i want to do with my life. i do, but i want them to be proud of me, you know?

Hello, dear anon~ ♥︎

Congratulations! You have unlocked an achievement :D

I have actually answered an ask similar to yours in the past. I recommend you give it a looksie c;

Now, as an added bonus, I’m going to tell you something else. You’re probably young (and that’s good!) so take my advice because this will save you a lot of worrying in the years to come, okay?

You don’t have any control over anyone’s feelings.

  • You can’t make your parents feel proud of you.
  • You can’t make anyone like you.
  • You can’t make anyone love you.

You can make it easier for them, by sacrificing your time and energy, but you cannot MAKE THEM, you can only make it easier for them– and yet again, what have you gained? Nothing. You’re gambling. Putting trust coins into a slot machine hoping that love comes out.

Sadly, that’s not how life works. You don’t have control over the people around you. You can influence them– but you can’t make them do anything they don’t want to do.

And most importantly– you should not have your happiness be dependent on things you have no control over.

Dear Anon, write. Enjoy the act of writing. Let it be the one thing that makes you happy above the rest– and never waste a second worrying what people will think of you. Some will love you. Some will hate you. Some may… in time, be proud of you. But you have no control over it.

So, focus on what you have control over. Your writing. Your craft. Your time. Spend it wisely, and… be happy, always be happy. Life is too darn short to be worrying about people’s opinions.

I hope this helps~ ♥︎

"Blame not the hat."

Fedora-bashing befuddles me. For, I say, it is not terribly uncommon to spot said glorious hat of hats perched upon my own head. And, if I might indulge myself for a moment, popular opinion assures me that I’m a delight to be around. And yet, this splendid addition to my wardrobe has come under the most unforgiving of fire from the community at large, and I find myself gobsmacked and utterly bewildered.

Be there herds of oafish, ignorant, blathering imbeciles roaming the world, fedoras in tow, behaving boorishly and thereby besmirching the image of this stylish and otherwise acceptable accessory? Curse them, I say! For they are bringing slander upon that which I place upon my noggin in the most stylish of manners! Their regrettable reputation rains upon my parade in showers most acidic…

‘Tis not the fedora that behaves poorly. 'Tis the person beneath the brim who brings about your misfortune! Blame not the fedora, for it did not ask to be worn by those who would bring about hardship to what could have been, and should have been, an enjoyable day filled with merriment for all. Blame not the fedora, as one who hears a horrendous musical recital does not place blame upon the instrument. Rather, the fault lies with the performer who is in dire need of practice. Blame not the fedora.

Blame not the hat.

“That’s it? That’s your outgoing message? Really? I mean the one time I’m actively seeking the sound of your voice, that’s all I get? Perfect. Hmm. Anyway, I’m in your room, which is a lot less weird than it sounds. But I just wanted to say that because of what you did for me today’s the day that I get to see Elena. So thank you. And I’m sorry. Other than that I don’t know what to say. Or what I’m supposed to say except that, uh, defying all possible global scenarios, I might miss you a little bit.” x

cyndercrys asked:

Hi! I was just wondering if you had any tips for fleshing out relationships (namely romantic ones) in writing? I've run out of ideas for a couple in one of my stories and feel as if their relationship is very 2D and not developed. Thank you very much!

Hello there!

You pose a very interesting question, and I think the answer for it can be found in real-life relationships~ Have you ever looked at couple and thought to yourself: “Why are they still together?”

Now, some people may look at this question and jump to conclusions. I think that simply to answer this question would generate for us nothing but a 2-Dimensional relationship. Take the graphic below:

Pretty bland, right? I don’t think this actually reflects a meaningful relationship. Do you really think that Tai is in love with Matt only because he finds him attractive? Really? If Tai found another, more attractive person, would they still be together?

This is why I think we should go beyond ‘what’ and ask ‘why’.

Consider the following questions (by the way, I’ll continue using the same names because it’s my OTP and I can cry if I want to):

  • What does Tai get from being in a relationship with Matt?
  • Why is this getting X so important to Tai?

Yeah, when we look at relationships like that it can become pretty depressing. But it’s kind of true. As selfish creatures we often strive to get what we want. Looking at it from that point of view, aren’t most real-life relationships 2-Dimensional? I think they tend to be, but I’m not the person to say if that is good or bad. After all, a relationship that’s basically a time-bomb makes for a great story.

But I think there’s more to it than that. I think that a truly meaningful relationship, where both parties long not only for their own benefit but the benefit of the other, are hard to come by, both in fiction and in real life.

I will leave you with the following:

Look at your characters, consider what they get from the relationship, why do they choose to be with this partner (of all the people in the universe), and — above all — what does this character bring into the relationship?

I think (personally) that the best of all relationships are those where both parties long to make their partner happy. It’s like taking care of a fruit-bearing tree. You can find fruit anywhere you go, but if you care and love for that tree, you will together gain something that could’ve have never existed otherwise c;

I think they call that ‘love.’

I hope this helps! If you, or any of my dear followers, has any more questions, please send them my way :D

Keep Writing~
