What needs to happen in X-Men: Dark Phoenix

A scene that parallels the one in X3, with Charles and Erik confronting an out of control Jean Grey possessed by the Dark Phoenix. But insteading of goading her on, Erik is the one to reach Jean and bring her back…possibly with a speech about ‘Rage and Serenity’.

The Shay Cormac Painting is...FINISHED!!!

Okay so about a month ago I did a public poll here on Tunblr and deviantart on which Assassin’s Creed Character would be awsome as a commission for the AMAZING @shyredd. Now I did came across her work on first hand back last year at Midwest Brony Fest, a brony convention in Kansas City. And turns out she lives not too far from my hometown. So I figured, why not I need more art for my appartment anyways.

 After a surprising conclusion that Shay Patrick Cormac took the win beating Jacob Frye by to points (maybe that will be my next time for another commission). After discussing with @shyredd on some details and great communications over notes, we decided that this would bring all the AC fans great joy to see.

And now now without furthure do, as promised @shyredd and I give you the Shay Cormac painting!!!

And there he is in all of his Shayness!!! By gosh look at the northren lights. And the templar red on the collar.

Sparkle Dang gome Sparkle!

So to all the shay fans, heres the long antisipated painting

Hi, I've been diagnosed with ADHD since I was pretty young and I used to be on vyvanse but I used to forget to take it a lot + when I did my brain just felt so weirdly empty/calm and I ended up not taking it anymore bc I was also embarrassed of needing it, and recently I've been having a ton of trouble managing my symptoms again but I'm scared to go back on medication again can you give me advice on how to bring it up with my mom/psychiatrist?

If you want to get back on medication, you don’t have to get back on Vyvanse! There are many other options (both stimulant and non-stimulant medications) that you can try! There’s nothing wrong with you and your psychiatrist jumping around to find the right fit. Let your mom know that you want to try medication again, but that you don’t want to try Vyvanse again.

For stimulants (such as Adderall) there are some with both immediate-release and extended-release options. 

Stimulant Medication Options (* = has immediate and extended release options)

  • Adderall*
  • Dexedrine
  • Focalin*
  • Vyvanse
  • Concerta*
  • Ritalin*
  • Daytrana (medication patch)
  • Vyvanse

Non-Stimulant Medication Options

  • Strattera
  • Kapvay
  • Intuniv

Do you think the producers, writers and/or actors already know if tbl was renewed for s5? And if so how do u think that affects the rest of s4 (if it picked up a renewal)

While I don’t think they have officially been told yet, I do believe that Bokenkamp has been given strong indications by NBC that TBL will be renewed. This is a story that needs plenty of runway to get to the endgame. And they need to know the when the last season is to write the ending - which IMO, will take a lot of episodes to get there.

They are finally moving in the direction of giving us answers, so 4C should be fulfilling in that sense. Spader said of 4C that they will give us answers but still leave stuff on the shelf (indicating that S5 is coming). They are trying to whet our appetite to bring us a big Season 5 - which could very well be the final season - or maybe not if the scripts draw more fans back in.

There are still a lot of slots on Red’s list that have yet to be filled so I am hoping they recapture the magic that was Season 1 and keep TBL going until at least Season 6 - which I believe was their original plan (Spader signed a 6 year contract).

Thanks for the question #Anon

“Some need to understand how hard it is to actually bring yourself to take a break. Many are hesitate to due to the fear of being replaced and forgotten, the fact no one will care after they come back even though people say they will. I’m one of the people that took a break and had that happen. Those people have insecurities for they already are lingering with it on a daily biases, or don’t have much resources to help them take it off of their mind, anxiety is hell, leads to further depression.”

Do you have any tips for short story writing? I'm currently writing one right now but not sure how to bring my story to a close as well as incorporate enough detail without it being too much. Very appreciative of you and your channel!😊

I do! I searched through my blog for some posts I’ve already made on short stories, so I’m just going to post them here as a comprehensive short story writing thing.

MY SHORT STORY WRITING PROCESS

My process for stories looks like this:

First I draft, which is not always linear. Meaning if I’m halfway through and I realize I needed a scene earlier on, I jump back and write it. Mostly I do write in order, though. I also go back and edit a lot as I’m drafting.

Once the first draft is done I attend to any large plot issues I see. The story has probably been edited several times by this point since I edit as a go, but we’ll call it one draft even though it’s more like three. Plot issues sometimes involve adding/removing scenes, but this also involves going back to scenes that are severely under written since I am an underwriter.

Then, I usually do two drafts on the computer looking at line level stuff. Basically just reading through the story and cleaning it up.

After that I start printing hard copies. This is also for line edits. My focus is everything prose here (if I notice more plot/character issues I’ll fix them though). Grammar is usually fine except for the odd typo or comma splice (my first drafts are generally grammatically pretty clean). Mostly I’m focusing on editing for economy, meaning cutting every word that’s not adding something and arranging sentences to be as economical as possible. And, I’m focusing on strengthening the prose which involves: cutting -ing verbs, cutting -ly adverbs, using the strongest possible verb/noun/word, removing cliches and familiar phrases, fixing monotonous sentence rhythm, removing repetitive word choice, fixing repetitive noun + verb constructions, removing ‘to be’ verbs, removing filters, removing passive voice, fixing convoluted phrases, enhancing patterns or making them more subtle if too obvious, cutting weasel words, removing unnecessary telling, varying vocabulary and enhancing diction, adding specific details and removing vague ones. And more! Also on those printed copies I have a strong focus on expanding description beats (or dialogue beats) that were underwritten in the original draft, as well as trying to make every image or analogy original and interesting. Basically, I’m trying to make the prose as clean and interesting as it can be.

I generally do that 5-7 times. Each draft has two parts. First editing on the hard copy, then going back into the document. I usually edit on the hard copy in the evening, and then the next morning go into the document. Each half of the process takes over an hour. Sometimes two for earlier drafts, but the time gets shorter with each one.

Then it gets handed in to my workshop, and it’s generally on draft 7-9.

After the workshop I do all my plot edits first. Then, I go back into the line level, except this time referencing hard copy edits from my prof and peers. I’ll have around 13 hard copies with edits, although some people in my workshop don’t do many line edits so there’re usually only 5ish with a lot written on them.

Post workshop is going to be another 7 or so drafts.

After I get my final grade from my prof I’ll do another few drafts based on her final comments. I think for Melting Point I did like four drafts after getting my final grade, but they were quick drafts with very few line edits. Just adding some new stuff and final polishing.

So in total a short story is looking like 15+ drafts, probably over 20

HOW TO GET STARTED WITH SHORT STORIES

I think one of the biggest misconceptions from people who don’t write short stories (including myself before I started writing short stories) is that the medium is restricting.

Yes, you have less words to tell a story. But, it’s not restricting. The short story form is so free. There is no one way a short story has to be. There are stories that only capture a single moment in time, there are short stories that span decades. In fact, in the short form, you can do cool, experimental, meta stuff that novels don’t accommodate as well.

It is very hard to get started in short stories when you’re used to writing novels, but I think the best thing to do is read some short stories, and jump into writing one. Once you’ve had more experience writing short stories, it’ll get easier and easier to determine what ideas function well in the short form.

I always like to make it clear that I never wrote short stories until I had to for school. I had a time restraint, and so naturally I had to get the thing done. I had to force myself to keep the ideas small. I’d suggest you impose similar rules on yourself. Refuse to go over a certain word limit, and make yourself contain the idea. Once you’ve done it once, it’ll be easier each time.

There are lots of ways to get started with a story. You can start with a character, determine their goal and subtextual goal, their want and need, and work from there. You can pick a setting that feels vivid to you and drop some characters in. You can start with a concept you want to explore. I like to use photographs as inspiration as a sort of prompt, building a story around the feeling of the image.

With short stories, sometimes it can be fun to just wing it. I am a plotter with novels, but often with short stories I don’t know where it’s going at first. I’ll get an idea for an image and just start writing. It feels like less of a risk because short stories are much easier to revise than novels. A lot of my short stories start with the first line. I write a few pages to feel it out, and the story usually clears up around the 3-7 page mark.

My biggest advice would be to just start. You don’t even have to know where it’s going. The more short stories you write, the easier they’ll be and the more adventurous you’ll realize you can be with the form.

HOW TO EDIT A SHORT STORY

When it comes to short stories, first I would go through this checklist:
1. Is the inciting incident clear and not too late in the story?
2. Is the climax clear and not out of the protagonist’s hands?
3. Are all the events in the story causally related?
4. Are all flashbacks needed, and described rather than explained in an expository way when they necessitate in-depth description?
5. Have you physically described your main character? Other characters?
6. Does your protagonist have an external and subtextual goal?
7. Does your protagonist face internal, interpersonal, and societal conflict?
8. Does the protagonist surprise us? That is, act in a way that reveals new complexities and facets of their personality? They are not one-dimensional.

Once you’ve dealt with all of those, I would recommend printing your story and doing line edits. When I’m revising a short story I print the story every evening, and read it through and make notes all over. A lot of notes. My most common notes are ‘sw’ which means ‘stronger word’ or ‘add one/two sentences/clauses to image’ which is basically just me wanting to carry an image more fully. But, I look for tons of things. Then, the next day I go through and apply all my edits. I repeat that for usually around seven drafts.

But, I would also recommend finding some betas of CPs to make sure you get outside feedback.

SHORT STORY TIPS

1. The economy and the skill of the language is key in a short story. I wouldn’t read a boring novel just because it had gorgeous writing, but I honestly would read a boring short story if the writing was amazing. Stay focused and be as economical as possible.

2. Cut the ‘connective tissue.’ All events need to have clear causal relation, but you can trim all the stuff around the edges.

3. Don’t be afraid to experiment. You don’t get this luxury as much in a novel. A heavily experimental voice or form might not be able to sustain itself for 80 000 words, but it can for 5000. If it benefits the story, don’t be scared to try something like second person or a really unique voice. It could make the story.

4. Every character should have an external goal (what is wanted) and a subtextual goal (why the goal is wanted). This applies to novels as well, but in a short story there isn’t time to ponder the goal, change the goal, discover the goal. Establish the goal and explore it, and make sure it’s clear.

5. Make sure your inciting incident isn’t too late. This has been the downfall of so many short stories in my workshop (including mine). Place it as early as possible.

6. Make sure the ending involves a character’s choice, and is not deus ex machina. This applies to novels, but I think it happens more in short stories. With so little time it’s easy to make the ending a coincidence or something outside the protagonist’s hands. Avoid this at all costs.

7. Compress the timeline as much as possible. Why have events be spaced three months apart if they could happen on the same day? It’ll make the story feel tighter and more cohesive, as well as reduce confusion.

8. Cohesion. Every aspect of the story should feel as if it is a cohesive part of the story.

9. Be careful about withholding information. I made this mistake in my first  story, because I was used to writing novels where the rate of reveal is slower. You’ll run into mad clarity issues if you’re revealing important details late in the story. Be clear as early as possible.

Prompt Day!

Today is a day where I hope to bring you some words written down in a creative order to convey characters and ideas in a manner that will inspire what you kids call FEELS.

Basically I’d like to write some fucking stories, and today’s my day to try and do that. Rather than solicit prompts, however, I’m going to dig back into my Ask Box and pull ones you guys have already sent that my pathetic ass did nothing with.

I’m going to focus primarily on making myself Just Fucking Write, rather than agonize over six million assorted fun and flavourful details that wind up incapacitating me more than anything. As a result, whatever happens today could be painfully short, or just literally painful. BUT I’M GOING TO TRY VERY HARD TO MAKE IT DONE, and if I can manage that, I’ve succeeded.

Today will be a pretty light day in terms of content volume, but hopefully less so in terms of personal accomplishment.

IN OTHER NEWS, in case you missed it this weekend, the votes are in on the Patreon, and next month I’ll be liveblogging Utena, livestreaming Emily Wants to Play (aka MURDERDOLL), and our movie night will be Chicago. The full May schedule will be coming in the next few days!
