I was wondering if you could explain how childhood neglect contributes to trauma? If nothing happened and there is nothing to recall then how would it be traumatic - I thought that is just how things were supposed to be (Sorry if this has been answered- I looked but I couldn't find anything similar)

I don’t think I have answered one about this! 

So, we usually think about trauma as the addition of something harmful. Neglect is the flipside of this- it’s the subtraction of something necessary for health or well-being. That usually includes things like enough food, a safe place to live and sleep, love and nurturing, and so on. Those kinds of experiences can lead to significant trauma, because people often end up feeling unstable, unsafe, and uncertain whether their needs will be met, even when circumstances change. So the memories are usually focused around the lack. Feeling hungry but being unable to eat, feeling sad but not being comforted, and so on. 

wow they really are like. steering us right to chardee macdennis. charlie finally landing the waitress and then immediately afterwards going to dee’s and lying next to her on the couch and talking about how he wants to “ghost the waitress” for a while? mac coming out? the valentine’s day episode? dennis calling mac his partner and giving a wholly accurate description of their relationship while they were supposed to be pretending? it’s all happening

To add on to the stranger-in-the-Weblum-is-Matt theory: Pidge was not there. If the Weblum dude had seen Pidge and still acted the same, we could be pretty certain it was not Matt, bc we know if he saw her he'd be like "sis! HI" and I find it interesting that the stranger was encountered with the team split up so he WOULDN'T see her. Additionally, though some might say "why didn't 'Matt' just stay when he found other humans?" he could be doing the same thing Pidge did: looking for their dad.

I think that’s a great point. We truly don’t know how much Matt knew Keith if at all. Or what I guess what I’m really saying is we don’t know if Matt knows Keith visually. (Who knows if Shiro talked about Keith to his team, I suppose it’s pretty likely). 

I’m going to make a guess (this is strictly a guess I have no idea) Matt might be the same age as Lance and Hunk. And he seems to be more the engineer than a pilot. So that rules out Hunk, since there is a likelihood that they had classes together. 

As for Lance, Lance was not a battleship class pilot, and from what little we know about Matt he wasn’t exactly going on trips into battle, he was going on scientific trips to Kerboros. So perhaps he was more affiliated with Cargo Pilots?

He clearly knows Shiro and Pidge. We all know that for dead certain. But Keith is a bit of a long shot, there really is nothing tying him to Matt at all other than possibly Shiro talking about him or a chance pass by in the halls of the Garrison. 

And with that armor, Keith isn’t going to recognize Matt anytime soon. So it’s a bit of a long shot AND a lot of grasping at loose ends, HOWEVER

 I like the way you think Anon.

i was supposed to go to s house tomorrow n just netflix n chill.. then i remembered what happened when i trusted n really loved a guy n how he hurt me in the worst way n how worthless i felt. now i cancelled n looks like I’ll be in the library regretting my life choices

Jenny Slate running to the press to "tell all about Chris Evan's split"

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-4335368/Jenny-Slate-tells-Chris-Evans-split.html 

Hi girls! First of all, how are you?

I don’t know if you’ve seen the articles going around. JS run to the press to talk about the break up. And I find especially the dailymail article highly irritating for several reasons. First off, how classy it is to talk about a matter that’s supposed to be private? But I mean, she gives us update about her poop, so I shouldn’t be surprised.
I hate she keeps repeating she wasn’t her type. Yet she at the same time (in other interviews) claims look is not everything. She keeps repeating (as if we believe her) that at first they were just friends, and then he told her he had feelings for her (and she thought it was a prank) like… 

for example, ‘To be quite honest, I didn’t think I was his type. Eventually, when it was like, “Oh, you have these feelings for me?,” I was looking around like, “Is this a prank?” I mean, I understand why I think I’m beautiful, but if you’ve had a certain lifestyle and I’m a very, very different type of person — I don’t want to be an experiment.’ isn’t she implying she felt somehow used? or am I reading too much into it?

But my favorite part was “‘If you are a woman who really cares about her freedom, her rights, her sense of being an individual, it is confusing to go out with one of the most objectified people in the entire world. ’[Random women in CVS would come up and say] ’'Oh my God, is that Chris Evans? He’s so hot!” You’re like, “How dare you? That’s my boyfriend. But yes, he’s so hot.”’

She knows he’s one of the most objectified people in the world, yet she objectifies him too… 

Jesus, this type of women are really embarrassing.

Anyway! Have a nice weeks my beautiful ladies!

The 7 Elements of a SCENE

There are few things as soul-crushing in the writing process (at least to me) than getting a bunch of characters in a room with the intention of something happening, then the characters proceed to stand around and stare at each other.  

Or worse, look at you like this. 

My characters didn’t know why they were there. I didn’t know why they were there either. I had no clue what they were supposed to be doing, so I’d start throwing random instructions at them: “Fight, characters! You guys should fight now! Maybe fighting will make this event have a purpose!” Which inevitably resulted in characters going through the motions of battle for no apparent reason, like they had all lost their minds.

What was the problem? I didn’t know how to write a scene. I didn’t know what a scene was. I had a vague definition that it was something about changing scenery, or just “something happening”.

It’s not. And once I learned what a scene was, my characters got to stop pummeling each other, while wishing they could pummel me. 

So what is a scene? 

The definition of a scene is kind of like the definition of a story. Story is change, a massive change in the life of your main character. A scene is change too, but much smaller, and part of that huge story change. You couldn’t have the BIG change without these tiny changes. Thus, a scene is not switching scenery. It’s not flipping to a new Character’s POV. It’s one segment of change, which triggers the next change, which triggers the next, which gradually build into sequences, which build into Acts, which build into story. 

So what goes into a scene? How does it work?

1. Alternating Charges

If a scene opens positive, it will turn negative by the end. If it opens negative, it will end positive. Simple. 

2. Character Goals

Everybody in a scene wants something. If they don’t want anything, they shouldn’t be in the scene. And these characters, with their often opposing goals, are going to employ different tactics on each other to get what they want. Which creates …

3. Escalating Conflict

Conflict is created when one character wants one thing and another wants something else, right? So the characters in the scene are each pushing for something different, each new tactic increasing in determination. And what are these actions called?  

4. Beats

The beats of a scene are exchanges of action and reaction. One character does something, another character reacts. All exchanges (beats) are pushing the scene onward, building tension and conflict, until finally …

5. Turns & Revelations

The scene turns. The positive has changed to negative. Something has been discovered. The story has spun in a new direction.

6. Connection to Story Objective

Every scene must be connected to the BIG goal of the story, the main character is taking small actions to reach that big goal. If it isn’t obviously connected to this big plot, it won’t make sense. Your reader won’t know why the heck they’re reading the scene. Which brings us to … 

7. Logic & Necessity  

Every scene must be necessary. It must be able to be linked with the previous scene. “Because that happened in the previous scene, THIS must happen in this scene.”

So! To see how that all works, let’s break down a scene from Tangled. (Because I used it in the last post to map out how a premise works, and my little writer heart can’t resist symmetry.)

Which scene? The one right after this happens: 

Opening Charge: Positive. She’s realized everything. 

Rapunzel’s Goal: Rise up against her mother – finally. 

Gothel’s Goal: Regain control.

Escalating Conflict: They’re fighting over who controls Rapunzel, and this battle causes them to go from “mother and daughter” to “enemies”. The conflict builds nicely in this scene, causing the story turn.

Connection to Story Objective: Throughout the movie, the big thing Rapunzel wants is freedom, she wants her life to begin, she wants to have a new dream. This is the moment she figures out how to do that; it’s not escaping the tower, it’s escaping Gothel’s control over her.

So! Here’s the scene.

Beat 1

“Rapunzel? Rapunzel, what’s going on up there?”

Ignores her. Still processing the tremendous implications of this revelation. 

Beat 2

“Are you alright?" 

"I’m the lost princess.” (Dumbfounded. Almost whispering it to herself.)


Beat 3

“Oh, please speak up Rapunzel! You know how I hate the mumbling.” (Bullying.)

“I am the lost princess! Aren’t I?” (Fighting back. She will not be bullied anymore.)

Beat 4

Gothel stares, stunned. She’s rendered temporarily speechless, because her secret’s been revealed finally, and her victim is actually fighting against her.


“Did I mumble, Mother? Or should I even call you that?” (Accusing. Drawing herself up taller. Looking down on Gothel and glaring. She’s seeing her clearly for the first time in her life.)

Beat 5

After a pause, thinking up a tactic. “Oh, Rapunzel, do you even hear yourself? How could you ask such a ridiculous question?” (Laughs. Ridicules. Attempts to make her feel childish, dumb, worthy of being mocked. Tactics which have always worked. She even begins to hug her.)


Rapunzel pushes her. “It was you! It was all you!” (Still accusing and angry, but pain is beginning to show. It’s almost like she’s giving her a chance to explain herself.)


Beat 6

“Everything I did was to protect you.” (And Gothel doesn’t say anything redeeming. She’s holier than thou, regal, bestowing kindness on an ungrateful, stupid child. Trying to control through guilt.)

Rapunzel rams her out of the way. 

Beat 7

“Rapunzel!” (Shouting. Now trying anger.)

“I’ve spent my entire life hiding from people who would use me for my power …” (Leaves her.)

Beat 8

"Rapunzel!” (Still trying the anger angle.)

“But I should have been hiding from you.” (Throwing the truth at her.)

Beat 9

“Where will you go? He won’t be there for you.” (She’s tried everything else. It’s time to attack her heart.)

“What did you do to him?” (Fear)

Beat 10

“That criminal is to be hanged for his crimes.” (She’s keeping up the disapproving mother act, but striking her right where it will hurt her most.)

“No.” (She’s stopped. Shrinking in on herself. Staring, horrified. And Gothel thinks she’s won.)

Beat 11

“Now, now.  It’s alright. Listen to me. All of this is as it should be.” She goes to pat Rapunzel’s head, a gesture symbolic of her superiority, her physical, mental, and emotional control over her victim.


Rapunzel grabs Gothel’s wrist. “No! You were wrong about the world. And you were wrong about me! And I will never let you use my hair again!" 

Beat 12

Gothel wrenches free, stumbling backwards in shock and anger, breaking the mirror in the process. 

Rapunzel walks away. She’s escaped Gothel emotionally now.

Beat 13

"You want me to be the bad guy? Fine. Now I’m the bad guy.” (Well, now emotional control is over. It’s time to start stabbing Rapunzel’s boyfriend.)

This action has no reaction, interestingly. It leaves us hanging, a cliffhanger created with only beats. 

Closing Charge: Negative. She’s now a full-fledged villain, the motherly persona shed, and she’s determined to get what she wants whatever the cost. 

Turn: It changed from positive to negative,  and now we’ve got a Flynn-stabbing witch to deal with.  

Revelation: She’s always been evil. She has always been the bad guy. The motherly act was just that, an act. 

Logic & Necessity: This scene fits with the previous scene, and the one that follows.     

Though I’ve seen these concepts in many books, the place I first learned about it (and the best resource for scene design in my opinion) is the book Story by Robert McKee. It’s helped me countless times, is one of my favorite books on storytelling, and I highly recommend it if you write anything.

I realize that these definitions were a little vague, so I’ll be explaining things more thoroughly in subsequent posts. 

Okay but in those new Malec spoiler pics you can l i t e r a l l y see the evolution of Magnus’ reaction to Alec freaking Lightwood giving him a gift

First, you have Alec reaching out to give it to him and catching him off guard:

You have Magnus looking really freaking confused because, by the looks of it, they were shopping??? Probably for Max’s party, since I’m assuming that’s why they went in the first place.

And then you have the moment where the confusion starts to disappear and Magnus is just so freaking in awe of Alec and not knowing what to think

And then completely uncensored fondness at… whatever that’s supposed to actually be lol.

And don’t even get me started at how intensely Alec is looking at Magnus, like… how on earth is Magnus surviving that… Alec looks so determined and full of intent, and Magnus is totally caught off guard but he is far from unhappy with this sudden behaviour Alec’s displaying and, just, I’m not gonna make it
