people who come at the penumbra podcast claiming that it ‘fails to be as diverse as it pretends it is’ are kind of. missing the point, i think? the team are writing stories about people who don’t get to see themselves in stories otherwise, but there’s no way in hell they could write a single good story that perfectly represents every single person underneath this umbrella at once.  

right now, the team is running a longform series about a black, nonbinary, bisexual man slowly learning to come to terms with his past and survive the mental illness that tells him all the good he accomplishes is worthless and all the bad that he sees is his fault. juno is the primary character in this series, and while there are countless other lgbt+ characters, characters of color, characters with traumas and characters with disabilities in this series, their stories are not front and center because the story is about juno steel. this is especially true given that juno has yet to overcome his tendency to paint himself as the hero or the villain, and always the center of attention. he’s selfish.   

right now, the team is running a longform series about a whole slough of people who want to be knights and are constantly told they aren’t good enough. a man who uses a horse or crawls instead of walking. a woman who’s constantly belittled and underestimated by her peers because of her gender. a man who battles both anxiety and internalized homophobia. all of them manage to be some of the most competent and deadly fighters in the land. and presumably, there’s more about this group of people we don’t know yet. more people will get to see themselves represented in the second citadel stories, too, because of the ensemble cast. 

in the past, the team has written a story about two women falling in love, one of whom was nonwhite and genderqueer. it’s not a longform series, but the arc of the story itself was over in one episode. the conflict was resolved. when stories last longer than their conflicts do they stop being good stories, generally 

the team has spoken up saying that they can only be what they are. they won’t write stories that they don’t know how to tell well, because they’re dedicated to writing stories that constitute good representation, rather than token representation for its own sake. these stories can only be what they are, too. they can’t be every story at the same time

and i know it’s hard because there are so many different kinds of people who don’t have the chance to see themselves in stories, but speaking as someone who comes from both a privileged group and a disadvantaged one (ie a white nb lesbian): just because a story isn’t about you doesn’t mean that it isn’t important, or that it isn’t ‘diverse enough’

half the point of fandom is that we can fill in those gaps, if we want to, right? we can do a better job of allowing the writers to tell the story they’re working hard to tell right now, and if we have the time or energy, write some of the stories we want to see ourselves! or look for that content in another place! creators committed to this kind of diversity are few and far between, but there are more of them out there and maybe some of them are writing what you want to see right this minute

this ideological standard that a truly diverse story has to center around the whole spectrum of the human experience at once means that no story can ever measure up! and it’s harmful, especially when media that makes no claim of being diverse gets away with worse every day. above all, it belittles the amazing efforts this team have made to show people stories about themselves!

Surprise!

my ao3 if u want it: http://archiveofourown.org/users/yikeyway

It wasn’t the best idea. It was time consuming, a bit of a hassle, and definitely not cost effective, but you’d never claimed to have good ideas. A part of you rationalized that this was only the first leg of the first tour and that eventually they’d drag their shows to the east coast, to Maine, and you could just go then. But another part of you refused. This was the /first/ tour. It was special, it was scary, it was new. You wanted to see that, not only for yourself but for Ethan. So after a short battle with your impulse control that ended with your silly decision triumphant, you bought a ticket to the show and a flight to Detroit.

A few weeks later, you stood outside the theater, hands stuffed in the pockets of your jacket as you rocked on the balls of your feet. The doors opened and as people were led to their seats, you couldn’t help but smile. You’d seen a few videos and pictures, all of which the teams hard work and dedication practically radiated out of. There was also a strange meta feeling seeing as you’d listened to Ethan’s distressed rambling about them. A video of a certain dance and you remembered the 20 exasperated texts from him, groaning about how he just couldn’t get it right.

Your phone buzzed and brought you out of your reverie. You looked at the screen to see Ethan’s name, followed by a frighteningly long list of blue emojis in luea of a last name. You’d never understood people using their friends full names for their contacts. It was professional, yes, but /so boring/.

Ethan: Holy shit. Oh my god I’m gonna DIE

Ethan: Is it possible to die from nervousness and excitement at the same time? Bc that is what’s about to go down

Ethan: It’s the last show, y/n. What if I fuck it up? What if something absolutely terrible happens? WHAT IF SOMEONE DIES THAT WILL RUIN IT

You laugh to yourself as the texts come, one after another.

Y/N: Eth, calm down. You’re gonna do fine, I guarantee it. The shows have been wonderful so far, what makes you think this will be the one that sucks?

Y/N: Actually don’t answer that you’ll just freak yourself out more. Don’t worry, Ethan. It’s gonna be amazing, I know it.

You smile as you message him, and consider telling him that you’re there. But you planned to do it afterwards, as more of a surprise. You missed him, though, and were itching to see him in real life again. The last time you’d seen him had been before he moved to the opposite coast months ago. Every time he’d been close to being back home, you hadn’t been able to catch up. Conflicting schedules had forced you from seeing your probably-best-friend in almost a year.

Ethan: Okay. Okay yeah you’re right. It’s gonna be fine totally

Ethan: Alright shows starting soon I gotta go. Love you bye

Y/N: Love you too. Good luck, Eth. Don’t worry, hun, you know they’ll love it.

You got a barrage of hearts interspersed with a few other strange emojis in response. You laugh to yourself and press the power button on your phone. A few minutes later the lights dim and you’re swept up in the cheers of the crowd as the show starts.

It’s strange, but wonderful. There’s music and dancing and silly bits. They play games and laugh, changing costumes and bringing the audience into their fun. At one point there’s a q and a portion and you’re oh so tempted to ask a question to see if Ethan will realize what you’ve done.

You think you’ve blown your cover once when Amy, a beautiful blonde girl who Ethan introduced to you once over Skype and who dropped in on your conversations often, passed your seat at the end of your row. Her eyes passed over you, snapping back and filling with surprise. She obviously recognized you, but you just smiled and pressed a  finger over your lips to tell her not to say anything. Her surprised expression turned mischievous and she turned away to find a questioner, smirk on her face.

Near the end of the show, the boys got weepy. There were tears and hugs and so much emotion flowing through the room that you felt yourself tearing up too. You were so immensely proud of Ethan and what he had accomplished.

As they left the stage, you swallowed thickly and pulled out your phone. So far Ethan had texted you after every show, excited messages with more words misspelled than not, but you expected he’d be celebrating with his friends backstage right now. You open your conversation with Ethan and type out a message.

Y/N: You did wonderful, Eth. Your singing has really improved but the dancing could use some work. Especially liked the part where you tripped leaving the stage.

You pocketed your phone, moving into the crowd that was now flowing out of the venue. A few minutes later you were outside, cool night air refreshing on your skin, when your phone buzzed.

Ethan: ???????

Ethan: ur kiddin rihgt?

Ethan: Howd do you know that happened excuse me

Ethan: y/n…. Y/N

Ethan: AMMVY JUST SIAD SHE

Y/N: That she saw me in the crowd? Because she did. I’m outside, dumby.

You didn’t get an answer for a while as you edged around the crowd to stand by the side of the building. You wanted to see if you could wait it out and finally get to talk to Ethan in person again. You leaned against the wall, fidgeting with you phone. Suddenly, from farther down the alley a door slammed open. You jumped at the noise but barely had a moment to react before you were being knocked backwards by a speeding bullet of clothes and blue hair.

Ethan was babbling and hugging you tightly. You laughed, hugging him back.

“Oh my god! I can’t believe you’re here what the fuck?” Ethan was still teary from the show and it made his eyes shine.

“What are you even doing here? What the hell oh my god.” Ethan was out of breath, laughing giddily as he grabbed your face in his hands.

“I just… wanted to come see you. I know how much you’ve worked for this and I just couldn’t wait to see you again. The show was wonderful, Eth.”

Ethan’s face flushed at the praise. “Thank you. I’ve really missed you, I’m so glad you’re here.”

“I missed you too, Eth. So much.” You sigh. There’s a warmth in your chest and you feel so content. Not even the fact that you’re both in a cold, dank alley with a crowd of people right around the corner can ruin the moment. You’re hugging your best friend again and you’ve never been happier.

Ethan’s breath leaves him suddenly and his eyes widen. His grip slackens as he looks at you. He opens his mouth, then closes it, then opens it again. He breathes deeply before trying to speak again.

“I think I just realized something…”

“What?” You ask quietly, smile tugging the corners of your lips.

“I love you.”

Your brain short circuits and you blank for a moment. Then it’s spinning out of control again, like fireworks are exploding against your eyes. You can’t think of anything to say but you want to say everything.

You love him too.

Instead of trying to formulate a coherent response, you surge forward and press your lips against his. He makes a surprised noise before leaning back against you. You’re still hugging so you’re so close you can feel how fast his heart is beating. It’s like the world has frozen around you because nothing else matters. Nothing except Ethan.

When you pull away, he leans his forehead against yours and laughs. There’s a moment of silence before the sound of people clapping bursts into the bubble the two of you created. You jump back, looking around to see the source of the noise.

By the door Ethan burst out of is a group of people. You recognize them immediately as Ethan’s friend and tourmates. They’re clapping and whooping loudly, one of them, who you recognize as Mark, even whistles. When you look at Ethan he’s flushed all the way down his neck and glaring daggers at his friends.

“Fuck you.” He spits at them.

“It’s your fault for leaving the door open.” The tall one, Tyler, says.

“It was like a romcom. I could practically hear the fireworks.” Kathryn, a girl you’d taken a special liking to because of her kind words and snarky comments, puts in.

You laugh loudly, heart swelling with happiness. You have Ethan. You have this. It’s strange and complicated, but you wouldn’t have it any other way.

Okay, let’s start with how extremely adorable Jughead is. Like, he cares so much about the drive-in and as we found out, the place was literally his home. Like, someone protect my son please. And he tried so hard to save it, talking to the mayor, talking to Fred and handing out flyers and stuff. Forget Archie and that love triangle, this is the important story here.

Speaking of Fred and Archie, look how nice Fred was to that fucking pedophile. Like, he was complimenting her, inviting her to dinner and being such a great guy and that bitch is just sleeping with his son. Ugh. I hate her. 

Betty keeping a diary is so cliche™ but I love it lmao. 

I AM SO HERE FOR BETTY, RONNIE AND JUGHEAD HANGING OUT. Kevin’s okay too, I guess. Still haven’t decided if I like him or not. I mean, he’s funny and all but idk he just feels way too stereotypical and I’m still most certainly not over the biphobia. But maybe he isn’t really biphobic and that was a one time thing bc how else would Betty and Veronica, who are both obviously bisexual still be friends with him? Idk man. 

Cheryl, I love you for being a bitch but damn you just got your ass handed to you by Hermione Lodge, who is just as much of a goddess as her daughter. 

Betty calling out Archie on his shit 👏 👏👏

but like she was so…good about it?? Like she got her point across but didn’t immediately threaten to tell and stuff. And, Archie, honey, how could Ronnie even back you up? Firstly, what you’re doing ain’t cool and secondly, that’s her girlfriend you’re arguing with so ??? 

Archiekins 

Where can I sign a petition to get rid of Alice Cooper? 

THE ARCHIE/GRUNDY SCENES LITERALLY MADE ME SHUDDER WITH DISGUST ew ew ew ew ew. 

Betty questioning Grotesque Garbage is   👌 👌 👌 she was really good at that too honestly I just really love Betty Cooper man. 

SHE WAS JASON’S TEACHER? SHE’S THE KILLER!!11!!!1! 

“I don’t think of my students that way” lmao bitch stop lying

Jughead being a rebel with a cause is my aesthetic. And awww, he’s talking about himself and his family for once. This boy must be protected at all costs.. 

Archie, wtf are you trying to do, telling Betty to stay out of it? She’s literally doing what’s best for you like smh man shut up. 

BETTY AND VERONICA BEING DETECTIVE GIRLFRIENDS IS MY JAM. Like, seriously, they have so much chemistry like just let Bernoica happen man. It’s literally already canon. 

I would sell my soul to Satan and sell my body on the black market to make Beronica canon. 

I’m fully aware I’m being queerbaited but Betty and Ronnie are just. so. goddamn. cute. 

‘Jennifer Gibson’. THAT BITCH.

She has a gun in the car. THAT FUCKING BITCH. SHE’S THE KILLER!!!11!

Alice, wtf is wrong with you. Fred is a chill parent. He isn’t going to tell his son to stop talking to his best friend just ‘cause you’re a psycho who wants to control her daughter.

Okay, but like I really love Hermione and Veronica’s relationship it’s so good and–WAIT A SEC THEY’RE BUYING THE DRIVE-IN. Why must you crush Jughead’s happiness?  I TRUSTED YOUR HERMIONE.

Omg Alice saw the gun oops shit shit shit (betty what were you thinking hiding it in your fucking drawer smh girl). Wow, Alice just hit a new low. It’s not cool to read your daughter’s diary 

I would have felt bad after learning about Grundy’s backstory but my obvious hate for prevented that from happening thank god. 

ARCHIE, GET AWAY FROM THAT WOMAN. NO, DON’T HUG HER. UGH ARCHIE WHY.

Let’s talk about the drive-in.

Poor Juggie god I feel so bad for him Archie where are you your boyfriend needs you

VERNOICA!! LODGE!! IS!! A!! FUCKING!! GODDESS!!!

Veronica Lodge is like fine wine. She gets better and better the longer she exists. 

I kinda sorta weirdly like the Veronica-Cheryl-Kevin squad?? They can be the ‘burn you to a crisp’ squad.

Ooh, Kevin’s got a new hottie. Also, did I mention I really love Kevin’s dad? He’s so nice.

YAS KEVIN GET SOME (My feelings are so conflicted like I want to support Kevin because he’s the only important, openly LGBTQ+ character on the show so far but like, something’s just off about him) 

Archie, please never speak to Grun–OH. HE’S LEAVING HER. YES ARCHIE YES YES YES–OH WAIT. OH NO. 

SHIT’S ABOUT TO GO DOWN, DOWN, DOWN.

Alice why tf do you have to stick your nose where it doesn’t belong? 

Man, I feel bad for Fred. 

Archie, don’t defend that woman, please. She deserves it. 

Such drama much intense very wow. 

Oh no. My bby Betty is crying FUCK YOU ALICE. 

Okay, I know there’s probably some people sad about Grundy after her backstory but we got nothing but good stuff immediately after she left? 

Fred and Archie having a moment 👌 👌 👌 (I mean, I feel bad that Archie cried and that he was upset but it had to be done) 

Betty finally standing up to her asshole of a mother  👌 👌 👌 (I still kind of think that Betty is actually Polly but idk) 

A cute scene between Betty and Archie  👌 👌 👌

The scene where Veronica confronts her mom was certainly…something.

OH MY GAWD SOMEONE BROKE INTO KELLER’S HOUSE AND TOOK ALL THE EVIDENCE. THE SAME NIGHT GRUNDY LEFT. SHE’S DA KILLER. 

Grundy is like a bag of opened chips. She gets worse the longer she exists. Archie, you could not have been more wrong when you said she wasn’t a child predator. I already feel bad for that poor new kid victim of hers. 

On the whole, this was a really, really good episode. I give it a 9 out of 10, but that’s because my queen Josie wasn’t in it and there was not enough Jughead and Archie and there was way too much Archie and Grundy interaction but hey, at least she’s gone now. 

God, I’m literally crying over Jughead. The picture with him and his sister (who tf named them Jughead and Jellybean tho) was so adorable and so sad. My poor child. 

OH MY GOD THE SCARY BIKER DUDE IS JUGHEAD’S DAD?!

Where will he go? What will he do? How will he live? WHERE WILL HE CHARCHG HIS LAPTOP ASHFRWLGHLUFU ARCHIE COME HELP YOUR BOYFRIEND 

Also, I would just like to add, Betty is the best friend anyone could ever have and she needs to be appreciated more. 

So, what do you guys think? What do you agree and disagree with me on? Let’s talk! Reblog this while adding your notes or send in an ask (PLEASE SEND ME ASKS) or send me a message or something and I will see y’all next week.

anonymous asked:

I'm so glad Kirishima is getting so much spotlight, he really deserves it!!!! And it looks like hes gonna get more, since hes in the main group along with Deku, Uraraka and Tsuyu. I;m so hyped!!!

Honestly!!!!!!!!!!! That’s one interesting group tbh, Kirishima and Tsuyu’s interactions are always incredibly adorable to watch and seeing Kirishima interact for so long with pure and good people is gonna be hard on my heart (I mean, you know I’m 100% a bakusquad fan but they’re all at least in part assholes and Kiri fits with them just right, he can be just like Sero and Kaminari and I love it, but then his interactions with Amajiki have been so pure can you imagine an arc filled with that I’m already crying)

I just hope my other faves won’t completely disappear through this arc haha sigh

daziy  asked:

Have you ever done the batfam as benders in the Avatar world?

actually, @littleamericanduck and I threw around this AU for a while (Bren I still have those conversations in my inbox) which was great fun so I’ll just pull the basics from that. We kept everything the same: Gotham, the technology just… some people have bending.

Bruce- Non-bender but an expert fighter. I read an AMAZING ATLA fic where there was this fighter who was an expert in all 4 bending styles without any bending and that’s what I picture B as. He goes out and does the whole ‘justice things’ using all sorts of bending moves and other techniques without any ability. Still kick-ass and very frustrated with his crazy bending children. All the kids specialize in their area but are taught all styles but B.

Alfred- Bren and I talked about this, I was really taken by the idea of firebending Alfred. He was a warrior and a hotshot back in the day and was content to spend his days using his abilities to only light candles. But once he got drafted into Bruce’s war on crime, well old habits die hard. Taught B a lot of his moves and how to disarm benders. Helped Jason control his fire when he first came. A warm, gentle presence most of the time but the sparks fly when his family tries his very generous patience.

Dick- Everyone wants to say air but, to me, Dick has all the traits of a waterbender: calm but persistant, able to divert and adapt, both a calming presence and a cold storm so Dickie is a waterbender. Bruce had no idea what to do with this kid and his insane magic water (maybe the Grayson’s were a bending troupe? That’d be cool) so he trains him. An immensely skilled bender in costume, downplays his bending in public. Learned mostly from B but also trained with other masters. Also his escrima sticks are frozen ice sticks that he can use and bend and it’s hella cool just imagine.

Jason- firbender, no surprise. Used it harshly and dirtily as a child, never really took the time to master it or his emotions so his fire was imprecise and all over the place. Bruce and Alfie helped to tame the fire in him so it obeyed him and he became quite adept with it. Still too harsh for B’s tastes and a few too many criminals got nasty burns. Jay was burned and blown up in the warehouse which gave him seriously problems when he came back. He had a hard time conjuring his fire bc he kept seeing the fires that killed him. Spent years training in non-bending combat liek B to compensate so Red Hood was truly anoymous until he struck until instinctually with one of Alfred’s moves. Now that he’s closer in the fam, learning to be comfortable with his bending again and reign in his ever present temper which was only exacerbated by the Pit.

Babs- Non-bender like B, Dick used to look down on her for it but Barb quickly put the wtaerbender in his place. Basically everything is the same except she has to deal with water all over her apartment and singe marks on her walls and wind constantly in her face and dirt everywhere. She and B commiserate together.

Cass- I’m not sure, I’m tempted to say chi blocking non-bender again who was honed by Cain to be a fighting machine capable of taking down basically everyone but also i kind of like the idea of her being a waterbender too but, like Tim, was discouraged from using it. She later develops this ability with Dick but still doesn’t use it much, only when she feels comfortable. Either way, she’s a chi-blocker and will not hesitate to fuck up her brothers and temporarily paralyze them or take their bending. They fear her for this but also so much love and respect.

Tim- Hear me out, airbender Tim. Light hearted but a bit detached from the world, calm but hiding a tempest within, rather avoid and evade conflict, outthink rather than outfight. Airbenders are super rare, not found in families but just popping up out of nowhere in families. The Drakes are a prominant non-bending family and thought bending was “beneath” Tim so they didn’t register him. Hid his abilities out of shame for years, even from Bruce when he first became Robin. But he could only hide it so long before it came out. Bruce trained Tim then sent him off to prominant airbenders to teach him to love his bending. Not as flashy as the others, uses it precisely (lightly avoid attacks, push/pull things) but he is also capable of immense storms when prompted.

Steph- Earthbender hella, strong, stubborn and dependable. Because she’s a bender things vigilanting will be easy but Tim quickly proves her wrong. Still he takes the time to train her in what B taught him, secretly confides in his airbending abilities before anyone else. Despite being opposite elements, they get on super well complimenting each other’s movements. Studies bending on her own, takes classes and improves thanks to Tim’s help. B is still annoyed but eventually gives her better training as Robin. She’s still sloppy, doesn’t always take her abilities seriously but she’s always there to back people up, steady and immovable like the earth.

Dami- Also an earthbender. I can see the Al Ghul family being this intense earthbending dynasty, connected to the earth and desiring to spare it from modern society. Bruce again doesn’t know how to deal with this child with his abilities so he doesn’t. Dick steps up to the plate and mentors Damian. Dami had only know hard, unyielding earth but now gets to know cool waters and forgiving waves. Unconsciously adjusts his earthbending style with more waterbending techniques to create a unique, powerful style. Also bonds with Steph over being the only two earthbenders and part of his antagonism with Tim is the difference in the opposing elements.

It’s a fun AU, I still think my favorite part though is all the kids, one of each element like to band together and pretend someone is the avatar. One time they schemed together and made it look like Batman was bending all four elements and you bet at least 3 villains collapsed and crime went down to nothing for about a week. Jason is still laughing his ass off over it.

hello! I'm really glad to find your blog because it helps me a lot to get through many things for my future project! I also wanna know if you maybe can help me, bcs the world of my project is just like our own Earth, but there are monsters and people who can control elements like air, fire, etc. I'm still confused on how to make the world seems realistic and relatable to the readers, I wonder if you can help me? and I'm not a native English speaker, sorry if there is any mistake. thank you!

Hello, love!  Your English is great 👍  And thank you for following!

That sounds like a really cool universe :)  I strongly relate to your struggle with relatability – I tend to make my worlds complex and a bit inaccessible to readers.  And that’s the kind of problem that, when you look at it as a whole, feels pretty overwhelming.  That’s why I break it down into three different areas…


The Three C’s of Relatable Stories

In general, there are three big parts of your story that you’ll need your characters to understand and, on some level, relate to.  While your fictional universe should be unique and different from our real world – especially the more removed it is from real-life science and society – there should be a few common threads that your readers can see and think, “Oh, that’s just like real life!”  Examine your story in the following three areas:

1. Culture

This is the topic I’ll discuss most, so I put it first.  Your story’s culture is, for some readers (including myself), one of the most immersive and exciting aspects of your fictional universe.  Everything that creates your society – architecture, art, history, education, food, fashion, sports, politics, religion, medicine, community, major moral beliefs and conflicts – will shape how your readers experience your story.  Interesting fictional culture also promotes fanfiction, cosplay, and strong fandom ties that enable you to write sequels/spin-offs (J.K. Rowling is living off how strong her fictional culture was).

Because we want our cultures to be so unique and entertaining, though, many writers make the mistake of creating cultures too exotic or fantastical to reach readers.  But there are certain “human” parts of culture that reappear no matter what universe you’re in, so make sure your story has at least a few of the following:

  • Games.  Even wild animals, who have nothing to do with our society, play games with each other in real life – so unless fun and games are strictly outlawed in your universe, you should probably have some.  Games aren’t necessarily going to mirror ours; after all, we have board games, card games, video games, arcade games, sports games, drinking games, and games that don’t require supplies (guessing games, tag, hide-and-seek, charades, I-Spy etc.).  Different games are more appropriate for different ages – some are associated with certain genders, certain events, or certain environments.  Develop some of your own games, and maybe use some that mimic real games (with different names, of course).
  • Food.  Food isn’t just something we eat – it’s a culture.  Food culture = answering questions like:

Where do people of [lower/middle/upper] classes eat?

What sort of events are tied to food? (e.g. Thanksgiving, harvest festivals, etc.)

Are there special foods or meals for special occasions?

What do children eat in schools?

How difficult is it to get organic ingredients?

What is weight culture like?  In other words, are people viewed as more healthy when they eat more/less?  What figure is considered normal or attractive?  Do people diet?

  • Sports.  No matter where you live on planet earth, there’s generally some kind of sports culture – some sports are more dominant in some places than others (think about the U.S.’s relationship to soccer vs. everywhere else).  Some cultures use sports as a social activity for their kids, while others cultivate serious sports practice from childhood.  Certain sports are environmentally more relevant to certain places (which is why Canadians are so damn good at the winter Olympics).  Some sports are more violent than others – and each one has certain values: strength, speed, stamina, reflexes, agility, artistry, precision, rhythm, teamwork, or strategy.  Assess your fictional region’s values and develop sports culture that mirror said values.
  • Politics.  Every type of government comes with its own benefits, challenges, and conflicts.  Issues of allocating funds, handling corruption, checks and balances, legal rulings, outdated laws, controversial leaders, foreign relations, taxes, inequality, nature conservation, church vs. state, overpopulation – many of these problems will likely exist in your universe, in some form or another.  Pick and choose what political conflicts you’ll share with readers, and think about how they relate to and reflect in your fictional society.
  • Theology.  Decide on the majority worldview/s (theism, deism, naturalism, nihilism, pantheism, new age, post-modernism, etc. – although these worldviews shouldn’t be mentioned by name in your work) of your universe.  Read about these worldviews and how they shape society’s morals, legal system, government, interpersonal relationships, parenting, and environmentalism.  Create characters who align with the majority, and characters who contrast with the majority – thus creating conflicts that are very familiar to us.  This doesn’t mean your story has to become a religious or political commentary, of course!  But these belief systems have effects on every aspect of life, including life-or-death situations, romantic entanglements, and day-to-day affairs like work, money, and school.

2. Characters

Arguably the most important aspect of relatability, your characters are the driving force of empathy and comfort for your readers.  Although your characters will have some level of difference from real people (especially if your genre is fantasy/supernatural), there are a few common things that your characters should more than likely have:

  • Desires.  Everyone everywhere has desires, both attainable and unattainable, that drive them through every action.  There are large-scale desires – dream colleges, dream jobs, dream power, dream relationships – and small-scale desires – to help someone through a hard time, to make money, to eat right, to be a patient person – and even unknown desires – answers, fulfillment, guidance, the “right thing”, passion – all of which will exist in each character simultaneously.  Decide what your character wants, and you’ve already got multiple platforms for relatability.
  • Weaknesses.  Where there are desires, there are weaknesses that get in the way of those desires – and that’s usually the best way to find them.  What gets in the way of what they want?  Look at the Seven Deadly Sins; look at your own flaws, and the flaws that annoy you the most in others, and the flaws you don’t mind in others.  If your character, for example, wants to become famous on Broadway… what makes it a challenge?  Does she have social anxiety?  Is she impatient?  Does she struggle with her responsibilities?  Does she struggle with internalized discrimination?  What makes her dream personally, circumstantially, or socially unattainable?
  • Self-image.  So they’ve got their desires, and the weaknesses that keep them from those desires, so the real question is: how do they see themselves?  Do they focus on their failures or their successes?  Do they see their dreams as attainable or impossible?  Do they make steps to better themselves or do they feel comfortable with who they are now?  Do they absorb other people’s opinions of them, or reject those opinions?  Self-image is almost more relevant to a character’s story than their actual image, because this directs a lot of how they behave, how they struggle, and most importantly, how they narrate their own story.
  • Sins.  Bad habits, conscious choices, past sins – the sins they don’t even know are sins – these things are the ultimate stuff of relatability.  When someone reads your book and sees a character who shares their struggles, they won’t put the book down.  Don’t be afraid to let your character do bad things.  Don’t try to make them lovable angelic cinnamon rolls who do no harm.  Let them do things that make your readers cringe because damn it, she’s yelling at the people she loves again – stop pushing them away!  This will keep readers involved and allow them to feel your character’s failures as if they were their own.
  • Humor.  Everybody’s got a sense of humor – even those dumbass middle school boys who joke about sexual experiences they’ve never had.  Everyone has their own type of humor based on the kind of people they live with and the TV shows they watch and the experiences they’ve had.  Writing humor, however, can feel less natural – because there’s this pressure to make everybody laugh.  Don’t worry about that.  Just give your characters their own senses of humor, and someone will find it relatable.
  • Love.  Even villains have love to give.  Every person, and therefore every character – from every background and every trauma and every bad relationship and bad childhood – has love in their heart, as cheesy as that sounds.  They have love they want to give to people (sometimes a particular person) and love they want to receive, and different methods of expressing their love (see: The Five Love Languages) to others.  They have love for themselves, too, and conditions on which they’ll treat themselves with love.  Determine their potential for loving themselves, for loving others – both platonically and romantically – and for unconditional love.  Then allow this to grow over the course of the story, and you’ll have a character arc everyone can appreciate.

3. Conflict

Here is a post I’ve written discussing 4/5 of the main types of conflict, which are:

  • Man vs. Man
  • Man vs. Nature
  • Man vs. Society
  • Man vs. Self
  • Man vs. Technology/Supernatural

The reason these categories of conflict are so popular is because they’re the same conflicts we face in day-to-day life.  The fight over territory with your roommate = Man vs. Man.  Trying to find your car in the rain = Man vs. Nature.  Making the same New Year’s resolution for the third year in a row = Man vs. Self.  So identify these conflicts in your story, both large-scale and small-scale.  Both are important, but the personal conflicts – the ones that most affect your characters, like their resolutions or their roommate, or the killer beast that’s trying to eat them or the A.I. that’s taken control of their spaceship – will give your story stakes that, on their basest level, your readers will understand.


That’s my only real advice for you, since this is something I also struggle to manage – but I hope some of this makes sense for you and your story.  If you have any further questions, hit me up and I’ll try to get back to you way sooner.  Good luck!

  • So it fits him v well
  • Sometimes it’s hard on him though because everyone spills all of their problems onto him and it’s hard for him not to take some of it home
  • Works the normal 9-5 hours or something in between
  • Gets mondays and Saturdays off
  • Basically runs the therapy program
  • Did the one thing none of the other therapists want to do which is take on the interns
  • Had Seungkwan for 3 months
  • Worst 3 months ever
  • Was shit at being quiet and observing a session
  • Refused to take anymore interns after Seungkwan
  • Works mainly with doctors
  • It’s not uncommon for doctors to suffer with depression and anxiety
  • Out of all the professions being a doctor is actually the profession with the highest suicide rates so the hospital always wants checks on them
  • Josh and 2 other therapists made rounds to the doctors 4 times a year
  • The doctors dreaded seeing any of the therapists come to their wards
  • Josh kinda found it amusing
  • On rare occasions though docs have actually come to see Josh without upper management mandating it
  • Upper management actually mandates that after a doc has an patient death they have to see Josh or a different therapist for at least a month after in order to help the suicide rates
  • He understood doing evals on the surgeons and people like that but he never understood why he had to do evals on the other therapists
  • Not just mental health therapists but the physical health therapists as well
  • Like the occupational therapists like Sooyoung’s s/o
  • Josh doesn’t just do normal therapy
  • If he doesn’t have any evals or any appointments he goes and volunteers over at the paediatric and does a little music class
  • He brings his guitar and has the music therapist give him a bunch of instruments and goes over and plays music with the kids
  • Because paediatric is anyone under 18, the 12 and up dont really see the point in that so Josh actually does music therapy with them, much to the annoyance of the actual music therapist
  • Soonyoung loves Josh working with his kids, especially the older ones
  • Dr. Hosh refers all of his older kids to Josh
  • Alright so you’re a nurse on the paediatric ward
  • For two hours of your shift one day you got assigned to playroom
  • Most of the nursed hated the play room bc you were basically just trying to make sure sick children werent fighting each other, everyone who needed meds got them, basically just herding kittens
  • One little girl came up in English and asked if Doctor Josh was coming today
  • You had no idea who that was so you just kinda told her you werent sure and left it at that
  • Even though Josh came to the ward often you were mainly with patients as you were one of the bilingual nurses
  • Dr. Hosh came in to the playroom and immediately got smothered by small children trying to climb him like he was a jungle gym
  • He announced Dr. Josh was coming to visit them and then had you announce it in English
  • After that Soonyoung succumbed to the small children and eventually was lying on the ground as small children were climbing him
  • Until he got a page, then he one by one got the kids of him and bolted
  • About 5 minutes later Dr. Josh came in with a guitar case on his back
  • You only knew it was him because there was a mix of “Dr. Josh” and “Dr. Hong” in both English and Korean
  • Josh smiled at you and then he wheeled in a cart of toys
  • “Hi, sorry I dont think we’ve ever met. Joshua Hong, therapist, nice to meet you.” he said in Korean
  • “Oh um. Hi. I’m y/n y/l/n, nurse, nice to meet you too.” you reply back in Korean
  • You were just looking at each other for a good thirty seconds before a scream interrupts you, little Michael had fallen over a toy
  • You dash over to him and assess him quickly, nothing wrong just some bruises but he was four so of course he was gonna cry
  • You start trying to sooth him in English before leaving so Josh can do his music thing
  • Soothing Michael to sleep, you put him back in his room and let his attending nurse know what happened
  • You get back to the play room and the kids are wrapping up as apparently it took almost an hour to sooth michael
  • Josh packs up and starts loading stuff into his cart
  • “Hey, y/n, you speak english?” Josh asks
  • “Yep” you tell him while you can your eyes around the room to make sure no kids were killing each other
  • “Jiyang! Stop trying to put Daeyeols bunny in trash!”
  • Jiyang puts his head down and gives Daeyeol his bunny back
  • “So how long have you been on this ward?” Josh asks
  • “A few years, I use to be in the Emerg- INCHAE! STOP HITTING KIEUNS DOLL!”
  • Herding kittens
  • Josh just laughed
  • “But Y/n Noona! Kieun took my doll!” Little Inchae complained
  • “Kieun, did you take Inchaes doll?”
  • She nods her head
  • You swear you can never win
  • Josh finds you managing small conflict adorable
  • After you solve the doll crisis you page out to the other nurses so they could come get their kids and take them back to their room
  • “Y/n.” You feel a tug on your scrubs
  • You look down and see, Kyla, a little 5 year old, “Are you and Dr. Josh gonna go on a date? He’s looking at you like how my mommy looks at my mama.”
  • Blushing starts. Oh the blushing starts. “I don’t know Kyla. Go play with your toys until Nurse Rachel comes and gets you okay?”
  • She nods her head
  • “Well. I guess Kyla helped spill that I thought you were pretty.” Josh says to you
  • You almost choke. Josh thought you were pretty? You’ve seen him once!
  • “Hey look. I know we just met, but honestly, I would like to get some coffee with you and maybe get to know you a little better.”
  • All you can do is nod because you’re so shocked like what just happened.
  • “Can I ha-”
  • “DAEHAN LET GO OF MINGUK’S SHIRT!” You cut him off and hurry over to the two six year olds fighting each other
  • “Daehan what did we say about hurting other people.” You ask the young boy
  • “It’s bad and we shouldn’t do it.” He mumbles
  • “Exactly. Apologize to Minguk.”
  • “Sorry Minguk.”
  • “What are you sorry for Daehan.” You push
  • “I’m sorry for grabbing your shirt and pushing you.” He says with his head down
  • “Thank you Daehan. Alrighty. Minguk, Nurse Jisung is here so go with him. I need to tell Nurse Siyeon about this Daehan.”
  • Daehan looks mad but resentful
  • You walk back over to Josh, “Sorry bout that. Kids. Oh here my number.” You say and rattle off the digits
  • He texts you after he gets off shift.
  • You two set up a coffee date during your lunch break on Friday
  • When that Friday comes you guys talk for the whole time and both really enjoy yourselves
  • Soon every day you’re both there you get lunch together
  • Alrighty so it’s been almost two months into the daily lunch with Josh and you start developing serious feelings for him
  • You were having a pretty bad day, but then you saw you got assigned to playroom duty again you wanted to hit your head against a wall
  • Little did you know, Josh had talked with Soonyoung about wanting to confess to you during his little music therapy time so he had soonyoung purposely assign you to play room
  • About 15 minutes into monitoring Josh showed up with his guitar. All the kids gathered around him and he started playing the guitar
  • Then he started singing
  • He started singing confession by astro and looked at you the whole time
  • After he finished he looked at you in the eye and asked you to be his girlfriend
  • You said yes
  • Obviously
  • As he did the whole thing in Korean and there were some English speakers in there, he asked you again in English and you told him yes again
  • He later said he wanted to make sure all the kids knew
  • After that Soonyoung came in clapping and he had a birthday cake for one of the boys in there
  • Josh played happy birthday on the guitar while everyone sang
  • After he blew out the candles josh grabbed your hand
  • “Finally. You’re mine.”

anonymous asked:

honestly why do u even ship sns its so bad & abusive im glad ur pointing out its flaws for this illiterate fandom but. Why do u ship it

hmm lets stick to my meta habit and break this down.

Is SNS abusive?

No, abuse is:  treat with cruelty or violence, especially regularly or repeatedly. To exploit for personal gain. 

Sasuke never abused Naruto and vice versa. They got in fights, they argued, insulted each other, were ridiculously petty with each other and had catastrophically different ideologies that almost caused both their deaths. It’s unhealthy and toxic but it is not abuse.  

What’s bad, and should be acknowledged as bad about SNS?

-They both never understood each other and tried to violently enforce their ideas on one another. 

-Sasuke almost killing Naruto (in their mutual fight, thus not abuse) left some very serious trauma on his psyche.

-Naruto’s complete and frankly assholic insensitivity to the Uchiha clan massacre and where Sasuke is coming from. The fact that he knew of the truth yet regarded Sasuke’s mettle for avenging his family as ‘loving too much and being sad’ and that he tried making Sasuke’s want for justice #relatable by playing the ‘i was lonely too!!’ card. He even hid it, people try to pin this on the overall shitty ending but tbh it’s always been that way.

-Naruto had a certain selfishness when it came to Sasuke where the feelings he had towards him (canonic platonic,,in the sns fandom usually considered romantic) made him almost disregard Sasuke and his wishes.

-Their fights..aren’t really that romantic. Nobody wants their ship to cut off each other’s arm. 

-The pettiness they share towards each other is almost..overbearing lmao 

Why do people, including ruby, ship SNS despite all of this (or bc their cognitive dissonance lets them believe all of the above is none existent)?

- Naruto at the end of the day is truly just the story of how two lonely boys who on the surface seem totally different on the surface but actually have a lot in common who’ve come to see the world in very different ways due to their different experiences come to a mutual understanding. It’s the journey of one constantly trying to understand the other, constantly learning to take all what he’s learned and teach it to the other. No matter what he just wants to reach him with the message he’s learned ‘Pain is less when we share it between us.’ ‘Even with our differences we always have something in common. It’s better to unite based on that than to separate because of our differences.’. No matter how many times he is shut down, or trampled by some obstacle he wants that message to reach the person who saved him first. There’s a moral behind their story, if not just the whole unite part then learn to avoid what Naruto’s ass does when trying to unite with a person bc it’s annoying as shit. 

- They literally grew up watching each other! They gave each other hope! I cry. Literally look at this???


- While no one except kagehina can pull off orange/yellow and blue aesthetics (even tho their complimentary they are ugly together lets not fool ourselves, what are you? A mikasa volleyball??)

They manage to make the combo look aesthetically pleasing.

-The bond they share is literally representative of the yin yang energy elements

-Naruto always strove to understand Sasuke

-Naruto always had a profound impact on Sasuke and the way he sees things

-Being apart hurt both of them like hell

-Naruto had a panic attack at the thought of Sasuke dying

-The personality types of these two always work in shipping!!! Specially for me. Some of my similar troped otps:

*My favourite ship ever is Kagehina from haikyuu. They do the trope of energetic ball of sunshine and angsty boy the best imo. So sweet they give me a  toothache, but when it’s angsty I cry my ass to sleep. They have tropes like ‘save me from my loneliness’, ‘rivals help you develop’ and ‘friends that give the feeling of romantic subtext’

*RinHaru is another popular ship in fandom culture, also very similar tropes such as sunny boy w angsty boy

*Tododeku. One of my absolute favourite ships atm. They are like a kagehina 2.0 and its the same damn trope. Innocent energetic boy saves angsty boy and makes him reconsider the way he looks at life.

*Klance. Always arguing, clearly care for each other. Keith is angsty and angry, Lance is a ball of life.

*Zutara. Motherly loud girl and angsty boy in need of getting his shit together. 

The list could go on but roughly speaking some of my fav ships and the respective fandom’s fav ships have these dynamics and tropes that are similar to what Kishimoto was trying to do. I personally can’t say SNS is the best ship out of these. Naruto telling Sasuke ‘you’re my friend’ doesn’t hit me as hard as Hinata’s ‘I’m here!’. Sasuke’s ‘I trained to escape that weakness’ never shocked me as hard as ‘Rin, I know who i’m swimming for!’. Sasuke’s revelation of tears cannot touch the intensity of the second Izuku got to Todoroki with a single line after breaking his bones to get through to him. SNS had an arm but it wasn’t as dynamic, it wasn’t as well done. 

 When they fight it’s hardly as cute as klance having their daily banter and Naruto is not as understanding as Katara. So I will always stand by what I say, SNS is the weakest mxm ship in all of shonen. In an entire genre based on strong bonds between dudes, they manage to become a joke within the fandom. But Naruto in itself is a series with a lot of flaws that is considered a joke, even among its fans. I love SNS for the same reason I am trapped in Naruto hell, anon. The god damn potential of it all.  

My stance:

Rarely any anti content regarding any team 7 ship on this blog. I am pro SS NS and SNS. I don’t ship Kakasaku but i’m also pro that. The only ship I hate in Naruto is Naruhina, the rest have strong bases and are highly compatible so,,they all get a yes from me. It’s no secret that I otp Sasusaku the most tho.

Thanks for the ask, mate. Hope this cleared shit up.

Gerald came to visit you almost every day. Some days, you would meet him on the inside of Alexandria, and he would talk to you through the wall. Other days, you would go on what Rick thought were solo runs, and you’d come back with supplies that Gerald would bring you. 

You always tried to look your best for him, even though your supplies were limited. For example, you didn’t have makeup or the nicest clothes, but you tried to make your hair look nicer than usual when you went out to see him. It excited you, making you feel like a rebellious teenager. 

He and you didn’t have an official meeting spot. You would just walk until you could see his car. Sometimes you walked longer than other days to see him, but he always made sure you had a ride home. When you first started seeing him, you would refuse rides until he convinced you. You grew to just jump in the car after about three meetings, though. 

Your relationship wasn’t defined. You weren’t dating, and you didn’t give each other pet names like couples would. You were just there for each other, no matter how hard it was. 

You felt the people of Alexandria growing suspicious of you leaving on your own so often, but you were able to fool them with the plethoras of supplies you would bring back almost daily. 

Although you were able to hide your true intentions from your group, you wondered if anyone had suspected anything of Gerald at the Sanctuary. Surely somebody would notice the food that went missing, unless their supply was so generous that they had plenty to spare. 

“How long do you think we can keep doing this?” you asked him. You were in the passenger’s seat of Gerald’s car–the same one he drove you home in the day you met him. 

“Keep doing what?” 

“You know… Sneaking out. Don’t you think your dad will find out about me eventually?” You tried to avoid eye contact, for you were afraid of showing any signs of weakness around him. 

“No, no. I’m careful.” He smirked at you and propped up his elbow on the rolled-down window. “Nobody has any idea. We’re fine.” 

You weren’t fine. You believed him, though. He was as careful as he could be, but it wasn’t enough. Negan began to grow suspicious, and he started sending out people one by one to follow Gerald’s car. 

That was how you ended up in the same place you were in when you first saw Gerald. Only that time, it was different. Gerald wasn’t there to save you. He couldn’t just conveniently pass by your cell and ask his father to leave you. That trick only worked once on Negan. 

“Boy, oh, boy. Isn’t Rick just gonna be thrilled when he finds out that you’ve been playin’ around with my son!” Negan raved. “Yeah, I think he’s gonna love the sound of that. Maybe we can work out a deal, eh? Maybe we can be like Montegues and Capulets.” 

“Are you implying that your son and I are going to die?” you sighed. 

“Oh, no.” You glared at him from your spot on the chair which you were tied down to. “I think it’d be preferable for everyone if nobody died. I just have to make sure you stay the hell away from my boy.”

Your heel bounced up and down against the concrete floor as your nerves began to build up inside of you. “We’re not hurting anyone. Why can’t you just let your son be happy?” you pleaded. 

Negan chuckled at the ground and shook his head. “Sweetheart, I don’t know where you’ve been the past few years, but nobody’s happy.” 

You glared at him and shook your head. “No, you’re wrong. People are happy because they’ve found people who they can really relate to. We’ve all gone through the same things. We know what it’s like.” 

“Darlin’, give it a rest!” Negan reached forward and placed his hands on your shoulders. “We both know that I will get what I want, and what I want is for you to stay the hell away from my son. Is that clear?” 

Your chest huffed as your breathing quickened even more. 

“Is that clear?” Any and all signs of Negan fooling around were gone, and you were unable to form a real sentence. You nodded your head at him, tears welling in your eyes. You weren’t stupid. You knew Negan wasn’t just going to take your word for it. There were going to be guards, and he would really make sure you stayed away. 

You and Gerald were over, and there was nothing you could do about it. 

Negan thought it would be humorous to deliver you back to Alexandria himself. “I can’t wait to see the look on Rick’s face when I tell him you’ve been screwing my son.”

“We never did anything like that,” you snapped. 

Negan smiled and glanced out the window of his truck. “I knew that kid was too big of a pussy to make a move. You know, as tough as he is, he’s a real softie.” 

You looked away, not wanting to talk or think about Gerald. 

Rick was going to know where you had been getting all the supplies, and he sure as hell wasn’t going to be happy. You would have to start going on real runs again, which you didn’t mind. It would be humiliating, though. Having to admit that you hadn’t found anything on your own was going to be so degrading, and Negan knew it. 

The gate was already open when Negan pulled in to Alexandria. When Rick saw you in the passenger seat of his truck, his face went pale. Tara, Carl, and Sasha all ran to Rick’s side when they noticed you side-by-side with Negan. 

“Hey, Rick! Look who I found!” Negan teased. You sighed and looked anywhere but the eyes of your friends. “Man, you’re never gonna believe what I found out about her.”

Spoilers for Harlots Ep 6

My stray thoughts on this episode:

  • We see Lucy continuing to grapple with all of her deeply negative and traumatic experiences with sex this episode (she’s had only one positive experience with it and seems to have had a number of the worst sort of experiences early on - would she think she was “no good at this” if her entry into this world hadn’t been so rough? probably not, but she thinks her reaction is unnatural and her fault) - it makes her supremely uncomfortable to even hear all the groans and grunts of pleasure in the house of Wells. this of course all comes to a head when she stabs the horrid sir george in self-defense, and it’s far from an act of vengeance or something meant to signify her “descent into darkness” (she even goes back to apologize to him!) or whatever people are saying about the direction of her storyline. it’s a thing that happens that Margaret takes upon herself so that sweet Lucy won’t be damned, in one of the most powerful moments of the episode. more than ever, this episode shows us how even when Margaret does the wrong thing, it’s always out of love. that’s something of a theme in the parent/child relationships this episode including the abusive relationship of lydia/margaret (which I’ll discuss later) as Florence points out, and Florence’s own relationship with her daughter Amelia - and Fanny’s relationship with her unborn child is also explored as another example of the exigencies exacted by motherhood. Despite the hand her mother has had in her situation, Lucy continues to be loyal to her and lashes out at the other girls when she suspects them of speaking ill about her. All the scenes of her and Margaret holding each other - in the wake of Lucy finding out what her mother did for her - caught at my heart and made me cry.
  • Scenes like the one we got between Will and Harriet are so important. Seeing Harriet happy that she finally has some power over her life and the future of her children is a beautiful thing, and seeing Will reach out to her with kindness and empathy from a place of shared understanding was cathartic for her to be sure - and I’ve little doubt he has now somehow gone after her children and will bring them back to her. Then we see Will crack under Benjamin Lennox’s constant racist attacks on him, and Margaret’s interesting response - she is proud of Will for defending himself but as he says, still upset about the practical side of things. Margaret has a clear moral compass but business pretty much always comes first in matters of pride.
  • The irony of Emily’s situation and of Margaret saying to Nancy that “that girl’s not worthy of your care” is that she is a lot like Margaret was once in terms of her circumstances (and I suspect, her personality), as Nancy pointed out last episode and yet Margaret turned her away. She did not “sustain and defend” as Nancy said she ought. This is an indictment of Margaret’s occasional ruthless pragmatism (possibly even an unconscious occasional emulation of Lydia as I’ll discuss later) - it is not a reason to blame Emily for her own situation (and it’s not something the other girls have seen Margaret do before as they’re shocked and it leads Fanny to keep her pregnancy secret). She felt under-appreciated so she left for work elsewhere. She in no way brought her horrible situation upon herself. 
  • oh my god the scene between Florence and Amelia had me in tears. And it really seems to have enabled Florence to look on others in similar situations who haven’t given up the trade more charitably. Amelia is the only source of good in her life, but her goodness is so pervasive and determined and comforting that her mother cannot help but be swayed by it and decides to extend that understanding to others. she sees the hand of God in her child’s understanding, and takes it as a sign that her perspective is the right one. can Amelia just become a midwife or something to help out the other girls? that would be ideal. she’s been a nurse for her mother for years now!
  • Haxby is absolutely DESPERATE to get his job back (and looks like he’s been crying?), as it’s always been obvious it’s his whole life, and clearly believes his own delusions about the sway Charlotte had over him (notwithstanding his parting shot later about how she gave him pleasure - that was clearly a bit of unwitting jealousy) - that the fault lies with her. I’ve seen the next episode and he’s not in it much either and all I can say without spoilers is that I don’t like the direction it takes - it’s not so much character assassination as character oversimplification. It’s possible that more will be done with it in ep 8, but I’m pessimistic about it being resolved to my liking. This is one of only two things about this show that bother me - they just stick out a lot bc everything else is so well done (and I’m talking about episode 7 specifically and not what happens in this episode). Cmon guys you hired Ed Hogg - give him good material like you did in the first half of the season!
  • oh betsey having trouble with drink and Prince trying to help her :( he wants to be friends with the girls but his own survival instincts make it hard for them to trust him.
  • It was great to see more of Kitty this episode - she’s a good leader able to hold down the fort when Margaret’s needed elsewhere, and to manage conflicts and issues among the girls.
  • Nancy served SO MANY LOOKS this episode; I was LIVING. also Lydia’s black lace hat thing was my favorite thing ever - need one of those for myself
  • “How can it be hate that drives you? It is love.” And we see that love, such as it is, come into play in the final devastating scene of this episode. When Lydia comes to the door once more as Nancy is trying to transport Howard from the premisses, Margaret looks absolutely spent. Out of a combination of desperation to distract Lydia, emotional exhaustion, and through the learned behavior of an abused child, she tells Lydia where Emily is. “That’s my good girl,” Lydia says to her, and touches her chin in a way eerily reminiscent of how we’ve sometimes seen Margaret touch Lucy’s. That wraps up an episode on the perils of motherhood for both parties involved, and the lengths to which mothers will go when it’s not hate that drives them, but love.

Aight I gotta make a quick rant bc I saw something that made me mad

I’m not entirely sure how to begin this but here we go.

I’ve seen some people say they dislike the V route because they think it’s completely out of V’s character that he would leave Rika. That their love was beautiful and he was devoted to her and it’s a shame- all that jazz. There are multiple reasons why I feel like this is wrong, from both my experience playing through the route AND my experience with a relationship that’s a lot like theirs.

I’ll first cover the route portion, although I won’t go into detail about it because I don’t want to spoil anyone. Basically we already know though from all the previous routes and the Secret Endings that their relationship was a very toxic one. Rika literally abused Jihyun, both physically and emotionally. I will say, however, that Jihyun wasn’t an angel either. I can’t say much more without spoiling some major points in the route, but we do find out a lot more about their relationship (as expected). What I’ll say is this: when two people who don’t understand themselves and also don’t understand the world get into a relationship, there’s bound to be conflict. Especially in this case, considering each of their personal histories.

Their relationship was toxic to /both/ of them. Both of them suffered, and they were incredibly co-dependent on one another. That combined with their own problems led to a situation that would quickly escalate, and badly.

Nothing about their relationship is beautiful. It’s sad, and honestly they should completely remove themselves from each other’s lives in order to even begin to try to heal. Both of them are, essentially, traumatized by the relationship that they had.

But what would I know right? Only the stories that other people have said regarding their own opinions on this topic and abusive relationships in general.

However

I’ve seen a relationship like Jihyun and Rika’s first hand. My father and my step-mother are exactly this way. I don’t really know how to describe it to everyone concisely, but I’ll try my best.

My dad and my step-mom have been married for about eight years. I was 9 when they got married, and had been basically looking after my father and younger brother before that time. So when my step-mom moved in, I quickly grew to idolize her. She was my hero for many years- in fact, she was up until last April. Over the years they got into a lot of arguements, and a lot of bad things happened, but I didn’t think much of it because they always seemed to resolve things after a while. But when bad things happened, boy were they b a d. Several times they got seperated for a little while, only to always come back together in the end. I thought it was because they loved each other and were acting like adults, but I know better now. This past April I found out (from my sobbing father in the motel we were staying at during the renovation of our house) that she had been cheating on him for the entirety of their relationship. Not only that, but she had been isolating him from his friends and pushing all of his family members away, screaming at them and sending horrible emails. She had also been threatening to leave and take the younger children away to where he could never see them again. (Keep in mind, my dad’s not perfect and I’m sure he did some things that made the situation worse, but not anything deserving of this). However, after hearing this and remarking on how angry I was about how she had been treating him my dad got extremely angry with me, saying that we should be begging for her forgiveness and that I should “Never say anything like that ever again”. Which seems like a somewhat normal response I guess, I’m not sure I’m conveying this accurately.

But then a few weeks later something happened where I had to leave the house because I couldn’t handle being around her that night. The next morning at school I got a text from my dad saying that I needed to pack my clothes because I would be staying with my grandmother for a while. Honestly all day long I thought they were kicking me out, and it wasn’t until that evening that I found out that me, my brother, AND my dad were all staying with my grandmother. It turns out that the night before, after I left, the two of them had gotten into a huge HUGE fight. My step-mom was hysteric and kept on trying to leave the house, but since she wanted to take the babies with her and she was unstable at the time my dad blocked the door. This led her to launching herself at him and attacking him, biting his arm so hard that a chunk of his arm was missing and hitting him as much as she could. My dad’s a big guy and knows martial arts, but the only thing he did was try to get her to stop biting his arm. However, she called the police first and since she’s a small woman and my dad’s easily twice her size they arrested him for domestic violence, even though my younger sister (whose 12 and was there when this happened) told the police that in fact it was my step-mom being the antagonist. After that, lots of stuff happened that eventually led to me cutting off all contact with both my step-mom and my dad. The reason why? I couldn’t be around their toxic relationship any more. Even after all that stuff happened, my dad still said that she did nothing wrong and is an absolute saint and is the most perfect person ever and that really we should forgive her because she didn’t even do anything wrong in the first place.

I love my dad, and I want him to be happy, but I’ve tried to get him to see that he’s not in love with her, he’s /obessesed/. The way he talks about her, how she’s the only thing that matters, how she’s his everything, and all that stuff (just like Rika and Jihyun to each other) isn’t love. It’s obsession, plain and simple. And a relationship based on obsession is very, VERY toxic and damaging. Not only to the ones involved, but all those around them that care for them.

Basically, what I’m trying to say is that no, Rika and Jihyun do NOT belong together. I want both of them to be happy and live good lives, but that WILL NOT happen if they are together. As we’ve seen many times, it will only lead to people getting hurt.

I hope I managed to convey that all right. And I wasn’t trying to make it about me or rant about my life or anything, I was just trying to give a real life example of an obsessive, toxic relationship. Please don’t romanticize relationships like this. A lot of people go through it, and it’s horrible. Definitely not something to make light of, or to glorify.

Anyway, rant over. Sorry for bothering anyone or anything like that.

Things I want to see in S3

(ft. Black Paladin Keith because people need to give this boi a little more credit) (Also ft. Klance because I can’t help myself)

  • Though everyone is in shambles after Shiros disappearance, Keith somehow pulls everyone together. He tells them he knows it’s really hard. Everyone knows it’s hardest on him. Shiro is the closest Keith has ever had to family.
  • He shows compassion for his team mates but he also reminds them gentle what they are there to do
  • Lance is really not ok with it at first
  • Things between Keith and Lance become very very rough. And for a while only seem to get worse
  • Lance is jealous and feels more insecure (Just feeling like he’s just a filler and just annoyed with the fact that he always seems to be deemed second right after Keith (again I’m not really about really depressing angst bc my boi deserves all the love in the world))
  • Keith is frustrated because he’s sick of fight with Lance
  • Hunk and Coran try to smooth things over with both the paladins but not much works.
  • At least not until Keith is forced to make a big conflicting decision and turns to Lance
  • Lance wants to know why he turned to him and not the others
  • Keith tells him that Lance is really good at detecting whether or not he’s being too impulsive.
  • Lance gives him his honest opinion and also feels included and they talk all night devising a plan
  • they then explain the plan to the others and alter it to other points the team brings up
  • that works out so well, Keith starts going to Lance more and more
  • they end up getting along and only bicker (but it’s really only friendly banter)
  • The team starts really working together as a team and Keith really pulls through and becomes an excellent leader and Lance is a great second in command
  • (Allura becomes one of the paladins and everyone is really worried about her because she is a princess but she asures them that this is her war too. And plus, what’s a princess with no kingdom? She tells them they are just as important as she is and also they all know Allura knows how to kick ass so…)

Bonuses:

  • Pidge and Keith bond over Shiro’s disappearance and become very good friends
  • Keith hates fighting with Lance because he likes Lance and he just wants to mend things with him
  • The more Keith and Lance talk, the more they get into their personal lives and really bond
  • Hunk and Lance’s relationship grows and they spend lots of time with each other
  • Everyone silently ships Keith and Lance
  • The more Lance and Keith fall for each other, the more Lance and Allura become almost like siblings
  • Pidge is the first to find Shiro and he asks her in horror if Keith and Lance have been getting along (there’s no telling what trouble those two could get into with each other.) Pidge tells him that they actually have been getting along just great and Shiro says he’ll believe it when he sees it (sure enough… Shiro does a surprise)
