this one isn't as good but i'm bored!

“I understand that the 2P personalities aren’t canon, but I’m seriously sick of the same edgy gritty 'happy murderer’ crap in every piece of fanwork with them.  If you are at least going to make them the antagonists, make their goals more reasonable rather than ‘just because’.”


Not to mention the 2P fandom gets easily gung-ho if you try and portray them as other than ‘happy murderer’, yandere, “edgy badasses”, or jerkass woobies.  Even giving them the “wrong” name can get a negative reaction.  Like frack, man, there’s barely anything set in stone with these dudes, so kindly sit down.

This is why I prefer 2P Nyotalia.

I'm going to be going to a job interview for the first time with my portfolio and i am real anxious. Do u know of anything that would help me find courage??

I have tags on my blog for [“courage”], [“bravery”], [“confidence”], and [“anxiety”], which all hold many spells that could help you. Here’s just a few spells from the courage tag - feel free to check my blog for more spells like these!

Good luck in your interview, you’ve got this!

anonymous asked:

Hi there ^^ I've found your blog very helpful and I was wondering if you could help me out. I'm currently writing a lengthy story and a friend pointed out the lack of chapters. This isn't the first story I've written like this. I've tried writing chapters, but I'm really not that good in finding the right places to end or start one, or even find names for them (numbers are a bit boring, I think). So now I'm questioning whether I actually need chapters or not. Any advice?

I’m glad you find my advice helpful. I do have some advice for you! 

Chapters exist for a variety of reasons:

- Practicality: Your readers need places to stop once in a while.

- For Teasing: Well-placed chapter breaks can make it hard for a reader to put a book down.

- Organization: Chapters group similar scenes.

- Flow/Pacing: Longer chapters draw things out, shorter chapters make things feel like they’re happening quickly.

- For Emphasis: Certain pivotal scenes may want their own chapter to enhance their effect.

And those are just the reasons I can think of as I get ready for bed.

So, yes, I’d argue that you do need chapters for anything lengthy, especially based on the “practicality” idea. You don’t want to tire your readers by never giving them a concrete place to pause, or confuse them, since 99% of books have chapters or some form of similar scene grouping. 

For finding good places to end or start, look at how you’re writing your scenes. Your scenes have breaks and chapter breaks aren’t much different from those aside from being “bigger”. Chapters typically hold 2-3 related scenes and have 2,000-5,000 words (count based on average reader attention span, which is another reason to consider practicality), but that’s just a general guideline and not a set-in-stone rule.

For finding names, no honestly interested reader will ever refuse to read a story because the chapters aren’t named. In fact, name chapters can often be discouraged unless you’re writing a book for younger audiences or you’re just really good at titles. It’s not “boring” to just have numbers, it’s practical (I seem to really like that word tonight), and you shouldn’t let chapter-title (or even work title) concerns get in the way of writing the story. Your efforts to make something “not boring” should be going to your prose, not your chapter titles.

If you want to name them after you’ve finished your drafts, then go ahead! It’s just not worth your time to worry about during the “currently writing” stage.

Good luck with your chapters!

This isn't really an ask but whenever I'm walking to school and get rather bored or sad I imagine titans just running down the street and it makes me feel happy... Just wanted to let you know that one of your seedlings gets happy after imagining man eating monsters running down the street and destroying houses. Your manga has definitely made a positive impact <3

Oh well. That’s something new. Very good!

anonymous asked:

Thank goodness I'm not the only one despises Fairy Tail. The fan service and the fact that Mashima can only ever draw one single female body type infuriates me. The writing and plot progression isn't much to talk about either. I can genuinely say it's one of the worst pieces of shounen manga I've ever come across

I really liked the first few arcs then it got kinda boring and the extreme fanservice just made me glad I never bothered to catch up ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 

Today in meh, boys: I always set up my office so that the client’s chair is directly across the table from mine, leaving me plenty of personal space. The dude who just came in here grabbed the chair, pulled it back, moved it halfway around the table, and sat right next to me throughout the entire session. He wasn’t close enough to make it inappropriate or anything. I’m just like, whyyyyyy would you do that?

anonymous asked:

I'm so sorry to hear that making 50% off was bad for your self esteem. I was sad to hear that something that brought me so much joy wasn't a good experience for one of the creators and made them feel bad. I'm a little sad there isn't anymore 50%off but I'm happy that you're less stressed!

I want to clarify that I did have fun making 50% Off! and I don’t regret it. I met a lot of very nice people, and got to write, act, and produce regularly which I DID enjoy. But it did really effect my self esteem negatively. I wont bore anyone with the details but it really started to wear on me emotionally. I couldn’t do it anymore. I wanted to. I had made a promise to finish season one and I felt even worse breaking that promise. But I just couldn’t continue with the emotional stress and I am sorry to everyone I let down. I’m working on something more personal as we speak which I hope to share with you very soon. Thank you for watching, supporting both me and Alex in our endeavor, caring about my well being, and I apologize you never got a real ending.

the thing about writing a ship is like y’all realize there are aspects that AREN’T supposed to be realistic, right? this was something i learned way back in the day when i watched how i met your mother and i realized the writers had no clue how to keep barney and robin together and make it interesting and engaging. the thing that worked with barney and robin was the almost-maybe-will they-won’t they aspect of it. once they got together and stayed together, their relationship grew stale and boring. and that’s not to say it couldn’t have been interesting and well done, but the writers, in my opinion, sort of failed in that regard. where they succeeded with marshall and lily, they dropped the ball with barney and robin.

that stupid show is the reason why i’m very conscious of how i write ships and especially how i write slow burn. i don’t want to have all this build-up, chapters and chapters of build-up, only to get the two characters together and have them be constantly together all the time and everything is perfect and then you get bored of their relationship. or maybe bored isn’t the right word for it; it’s more just like you’re accustomed to them being together so it doesn’t feel like a big deal anymore. 

like, when an author only has the ship kiss once every three chapters, then i’m going to cling to those kisses with all i’ve got. i’m going to cherish those kisses and get a tingly feeling inside when i read those kisses. if the characters kissed every paragraph, i’d get used to it pretty quickly and then it wouldn’t feel special anymore. is it more realistic to kiss a lot? probably. is it better storytelling? debatable. 

there is of course a place for these characters fuck all the time!!! fuck for four chapters straight!!!! nothing but sex!!!! but there’s also a place for gentle touches and small gestures and refraining from constantly touching each other. 

is any of what i’m describing “realistic”? probably not. but sometimes you have to sacrifice realism for the sake of good narrative engaging storytelling, and hopefully you do it well enough that the audience suspends their disbelief and forgives you for not writing something 100 percent realistic.

All I want is a dating sim where I can be a lesbian and it isn't super symbolic/pretentious and no one dies or one where I'm a straight chick and not all of the dudes are boring twinks (and sex actually happens).

Good, unique dating sims/erotic VNs? Which, you know, with the thousands of ideas there are left untapped could easily be done? 

What blasphemy is this?

Possibly NOT a clone
  • [WARNING! will contain spoilers!]
  • Welcome to my Flux Buddies theory, and I have a good one to show you. Right.
  • You're possibly asking: how is Lalnable NOT a clone?
  • I'm not saying he isn't, but it might be possible he might not. In my perspective, I think he is Duncan's future self.
  • How?
  • Well, there has been many obvious scenes in where he might be. The first one was when Kim saved Duncan when he was tied up and surrounded by traps in the meteor. Before, Lalnable said that he loves grape soda and is bored of Kims noodles. Duncan is the complete opposite, BUT at the end of the episode, he said that the wants to try grape soda more because Kim likes it, and he might possibly grow bored of the taste of noodles. In the latest episode, when they're in the deep dark, Duncan made references to Lalnable's notebook him and Kim found at 'the local butchers' saying "what a lovely day" and possibly lied about saying it was a quote from Mad Max.. Also, several times during the series, he laughs kind of like Lalnable did. He also laughed on the latest video when Kim passed out from the darkness as she sang 'twinkle twinkle little star', whispering to Mother.
  • How is it possible Lalnable might be Duncan's future self?
  • Well, I'm guessing it may have something to do with Time Cops, possibly causing a paradox or somehow managed to sneak into their base undetected and go back in time from the far future, back to when Duncan had completed his castle, where he and Kim casted 'the apprentice'.
  • Where is Lalnable's Flux if he's Duncan's future self?
  • There might be a possibility that Duncan somehow got rid of the Flux, and maybe Kim too. But then how is he crazy?
  • Flux drives people insane once infected. It sticks to your skin like super glue and seeps into your flesh, going into your organs. Since its on a side of Kim's face and around Duncan's eyes, its possible that it has rooted to their Brains. If its gone, it might possibly have a permanent side affect of forever losing sanity, thus becoming completely insane.

Eating is good. Eating is great.

Prompt (Aokaga Month Day 5): Eating

(In which either of them contemplates the many feelings that come with eating, and tries to be poetic about their fateful love affair over a stolen piece of cake. Is it Aomine or Kagami? Take your pick.)

I love eating. I wish I was kidding. Eating every day, eating every hour, eating every food, eating what I want. Eating is something I’m inherently attuned with, and eating hasn’t done me anything wrong. A few bouts with the occasional stomachache, yes, but never anything medicine or a trip to the bathroom can’t handle. I adore eating.

Eating makes healthy a boy. I am still growing, and my appetite knows no bounds. Eating makes me happy. I am best friends with food, and my fondness knows no limits. Eating makes me feel alive. (It does keep me alive.) But as much as I love food and consuming, I am only human, and only recently eating has become too routine, too boring.

Eating with classmates has been fine. Eating with friends has been cool. Eating with my cohort has been great. And yet at the end of every meal that leaves no more room to fill, an emptiness has overwhelmed me, an unceasing cause of discomfort beneath my belly.

It is not the type of void that comes with eating alone. Heck, I have been rarely eating alone. Companionship does crazy things to your psyche, and more often these days, I have entirely avoided eating all by myself.

And yet no matter how I have tried to account for the teeny amount of fulfillment felt by dining with my rowdy buddies, there has been something I am certain that I have been missing.

Eating is good. Eating is great. Eating makes healthy a boy, it not only gains me weight. Friendship can be forged through a meal. Stories shared over or after a meal have become staple to me.

And yet, I have felt lonely.

Eating is good. Eating is great. I have tried to repeat the words, but on my anxiety they only grate.

Until you came.

Eating is good. Eating is great. Eating has been as natural as breathing, until you came and snatched my cake.

Eating is good. Eating is great. Eating has almost become a bore, until you decided to call dinner a date.

Eating is good. Eating is great. But eating with you—it’s got to be the best.

(End of my poetic murder.)

Day Off Part Three

Please Read -

Day Off - Part Two 

Day Off - Part One

Bio: after the brothers left on there hunt, you are left in the bunker deciding what to do.

Warnings: light swearing, fluff

A/n: Part 3 to Day off as promised, sorry this one took a bit longer to do but I’ve been busy with work, as well as trying to figure out how to continue this, and i recently watched an episode of Friends and it was the one where Phoebe swaps Monicas and Rachels rooms and it gave me the idea for this.

 Y/N/N = your nick name

“Right then, what should I do?” You asked yourself as you stood up from where you had been sitting, the boys were going to be on this hunt for a few days at least, the first day you didn’t do much other than relaxing, dosed up on pain killers, and catching-up on your favourite T.V shows on Netflix, as you hadn’t had much time to watch them. The day soon flew by, before you knew it, it was midnight and you were getting pretty tired so you turned the T.V off and made your way to your bed, past Deans room you notice the door was slightly open, it was unusual for Dean to leave his door open when he was out, you pushed the door lightly and noticed one of his shirts laid out on the bed and stuck to it was a note which read;

 Y/N, 

 Because I know how much you love wearing my shirts ;)

 Dean. xxx

 You couldn’t help but smile at the piece of paper, you snatched up the shirt and continued to your room. You opened the door and flicked the lights on, the real task was getting changed. You eventually got your shirt and bra off and proceeded to put deans on, you un-done your belt and managed to slide you jeans down your legs, sitting down on the bed you pulled the jeans off and chucked them on the floor, followed by your socks. You carefully spun round bringing your legs up to lay on your bed, pulling your blankets up and quickly drifted off to sleep.

 When you woke the next morning the pain in you side had dulled down as well as the bruising and swelling, you looked over at your alarm clock and it read 11.00am, you groaned and sat up, you never slept in this late, but you got up and shuffled your way to the kitchen, you made yourself a bowl of cereal and a cup of coffee and sat at the table,and checked your phone for any missed calls or messages, 

2 missed calls from Dean

4 texts from Dean

You let out a sigh and read the first message while eating your cereal,

Dean;


Hey Y/N/N how are you feeling hope everything is good back at the bunker, this hunt is going to be a little longer than expected maybe 2 more days or so x


Y/N/N don’t forget to take the pain meds if need be, they are in the bathroom cabinet…I think… x


Y/N why aren't you replying? I really hope you're still asleep!


Y/N???


The last text was sent only a few minutes ago, you thought you better reply to stop him worrying,

Hey Deano yeah sorry I was still sleeping, good news the bruising and swelling has gone down a bit and the pain isn't as bad as it was, its more of a dull ache now but no urgent need for pain meds, just hurry up with this hunt I'm getting bored here with no one to torment. x


Not even 2 minutes had passed before your phone buzzed with a reply from Dean

Thank God, I was starting to worry something had happened. At least you’re getting better. Me and Sammy are going as fast as we can with this hunt we’ve figured its a djin we’re now formulating a plan to gank the son of a bitch x


You had finished your cereal and sat back in the chair and started to reply,

I gathered but I am all good :) well go faster haha, just be careful Deano we both know how powerful djins can be, the bastards, be safe and come home whole, both you and Sam Okay?x


Y/N you know me my middle names are careful and safe.  Gotta run, We will be home soon enough, love ya :) x


You set your phone down on the table and let out another sigh, while tapping your fingers on the table, looking round the room trying to figure out what to do, you got up and put your empty bowl in the sink to wash later, you picked up your coffee and wandered to the sofa to watch some T.V, when it hit you, you took a step back and looked down the hall way and smirked to yourself, you had just come up with the best idea ever, not sure whether the boys would agree that it was the best idea ever, you did it anyway.

You made your way down the hall stopping outside of Deans bedroom, you decide to slip into some more comfortable clothing as you were going to be alone for a couple more days. you looked around deciding what to wear and settled on a pair of Deans boxer shorts and one of his plaid shirts hoping he wouldn’t mind. You looked around his room and started gathering his clothes out of his drawers placing them into a laundry basket once, you rolled your eyes to each condom you found in the drawer with his boxer shorts, once the drawers were empty you set to work on his wardrobe placing the clothes into the basket as well, you then placed the laundry basket outside of Sams door.

You turned on the stereo and turned up the classic rock music that started playing, you then went to find another basket for all of Sams clothes, once found you set to work on Sams drawers once done you moved onto the wardrobe and then place the basket outside of Deans door while you went to make another cup of coffee, your side hadn’t been a problem so far, so you went back to work and started placing Sams clothes into Deans drawers and wardrobe and then vice versa for Sams room and Deans clothes taking a sip of coffee once done, you then set to work on swapping everything else; books, magazines, collectables, followed by guns and anything else that was lying around to swap over. 3 hours later you had finished, you took a step back and admired your handy work and giggled to yourself “oh they are going to love me when they get home.”

You turned the stereo off and you made your way back to the living room, the soft padding of your bare feet was now the only sound that filled the bunker, you laid down on the sofa and turned the T.V on, and you drifted off to sleep.

-Part four-

one-strange-kid  asked:

How do you come up with and manage so many projects and story ideas? I'm just trying to come up with one good story to write, and this shit isn't easy.

That’s kind. The short and simple version is, I’m the kind of person that gets in trouble when bored so I try to stay busy. I find stuff has to simmer for a while before i decide it’s something i want to spend time on. Like – imagine a stovetop with a dozen pots of water and you just hover over it, waiting to see if one goes off.

don’t worry, maybe, about “one good story.” worry about “one story,” and let the good figure itself out on it’s own. for me, “good” was – and is – an obstacle. I can’t let myself worry about “good,” and really, it’s not for me to say. Like – like that’s now why i do it? Try not worrying about ‘good.’ get one done and see what comes next. life is long. good’ll happen on its own.

anonymous asked:

one of the main complaints people have about ron/hermione is that ron isn't smart and would bore her, which the fact that ron IS smart aside, I don't understand. like most people don't get involved in romantic relationships for academic fulfillment? plus it's made pretty clear that Hermione values friendship and loyalty and I assume love over intelligence any day. plus I'm a pretty good student and my boyfriend of three years isn't but he doesn't bore me at all! so ily bye.

this is so so important!! if you actually look at ron’s character in the books, he’s clearly very intelligent and people have, rightly, been defending romione based on this for ages. but i think you have a really good point because at the end of the day why does it matter? you can fall in love and be perfectly happy with someone even if you aren’t exactly intellectual equivalents, especially considering there are so many different types of intelligence. hermione makes it clear in philosophers stone that intelligence isn’t the most important thing to her, when she says to harry, “books! and cleverness! there are more important things - friendship and bravery.” and it’s pretty obvious that ron is an amazing friend as well as being incredibly brave, as evidenced from philosophers stone p1 to deathly hallows p607 (at least thats how many pages my edition has)
