I’m currently listening to the Order of the Phoenix audiobook. It’s a lot funnier than I remember, probably because I’m now inclined to laugh at Harry when he’s being an angsty teenager (sorry Harry, I know you’ve been through a lot, I don’t think I’d cope nearly as well as you have, ilu <3)
Ya know I started watching your videos and reading this blog around a year ago and since then I've had a lot more gay thoughts and I know I could probably blame it on being a teenage boy with tons of hormones but it's funnier to pin it on you.
tbh? You’re right. Honestly it’s always p amusing when people send asks like “IZZY STOP YOU’RE CONFUSING ME I’M FEELING GAY”
It’s my mission to give everyone a Gay Awakening one way or another.
But do people even realize how stressful is to think in English – or to translate your thoughts – when you were born in a country where English is not the native language nor one of the most spoken? Every time I want to post something on my blog, I have to check ten times every single word and sometimes I still make a lot of silly mistakes — I always feel kinda dumb because I know I’m funnier & smarter than I look on here but I’m not fluent enough to express myself and to let you all know the real me.
It may seem stupid but it’s just so frustrating I often think about only reblogging others and stop trying to make posts by myself.
“This isn't your average book, it's pure gold: Twelve Fail-Safe Ways to Charm Witches. Explains everything you need to know about girls. If only I'd had this last year I'd have known exactly how to get rid of Lavender and I would've known how to get going with... Well Fred and George gave me a copy, and I've learned a lot. You'd be surprised, it's not all about wandwork, either.”
I can’t decide what’s funnier…Ron thinking that getting a girl means performing some complicated spell or him giving the biggest “wand” innuendo in the entire series.
Another witch!Bucky headcanon bc we’re talking about it again;
Prewar Bucky not wanting to tell Steve that he’s a witch for a while, but he has a lot of herbs and really wants to help Steve whenever he’s sick. Bucky trying to give Steve tea as casually as possible while Steve’s like ‘Why does the tea you give me always taste so gross when I have a migraine?’
‘What? No it doesn’t. It’s just black tea, Steve. There’s no feverfew in it you’re imagining things because of your migraine just drink the tea.’
And Steve shrugs and goes ‘I don’t know what feverfew is but whatever.’
I can’t decide whether it’d be funnier if Steve totally knows or if Steve is completely oblivious.
I’ve been talking to a good friend about writing a lot lately. We were talking about names. She was suggesting that some of the name ideas we were bouncing back and forth were “too cute.” I’m pretty opposed to the idea. I feel like writing is a lot about commitment. Sort of like comedy. A character who is taking herself 100% seriously, but doing a ridiculous thing, is funnier than a character who thinks everything is one big joke (see: why Leslie Knope is funnier than all of Jimmy Carrey’s roles put together, do not @ me about this).
I feel like this concept can be applied to most creative expression. If you name a character, I don’t know, Boneshackle Hammersdown, but you take her seriously, I think readers will accept this. She’s gotta own being Boneshackle Hammersdown. I don’t think a book or its elements are ever too silly or too cute, just maybe not executed with the kind of confidence they needed.
It can be hard to have confidence when you’re just starting out. I know a lot of first fanfictions have a summary that goes something like: “sorry i’m not great at summaries, please read and review.” It’s hard to put writing out there without wanting to cringe in on yourself a little, hunch your shoulders. But the issue is, if you’re cringing away from your own writing, the reader has trouble looking at it properly. “This person is embarrassed of what they’ve created,” the reader thinks.
Being confident but derisive of your work has a similar effect, like a kid in drama class who breaks character to snicker at everyone now and then. “I just wrote this in like five minutes, whatever.” But if you’re above your own writing, or below it, where does this put the reader? Either way, they feel concerned about investing themselves in the story.
If you commit to your concepts and your characters, readers will commit too.
luke is the type to date someone way shorter than him and pretend he doesn’t notice, so he’ll say things like “babe, you’re so tall”, “can you kneel when you’re talking to me? your height is intimidating”, “it’s so cool dating someone my height”, “not even kidding, you’re the tallest person i know”

*whispers* what if Will was using dead people to fertilize his crops and that's why they tasted so good.
Okay I can’t exactly see Will going all on Eldon Stammets on his vegetable garden nonny, but how about this:
Hannibal starts spending a lot of time on Will’s farm. A LOT. Because he keeps inviting Will to dinner and Will keeps declining and it’s really the only way they can spend quality time together. Plus, Will looks really good in a sweat-soaked t-shirt with dirt under his nails. Like really, really good.
So Hannibal being, well, Hannibal, decides that you know what would make these crops grow faster and bigger and totally impress farmer Will with his amazing and sexy Lithuanian farming skills? Parts of dead people. So he grinds them up and makes his special “fertilizer” (that’s really just mushed up people and a bit of compost… that also mostly just consists of people) and takes it to Will and they use it on everything. And it works. And Will is so impressed he finally agrees to have dinner at Hannibal’s house.
And that’s the story of how the lettuce in their salad was actually people and cannibalism totally saved the day.

virgo: tbh where do i even begin. you’re so in your own head it fucks up all of your friendships bc you literally overthink everything and make problems out of nothing and on top of that you don’t let anyone help you. i’ve been around you for a long time but you push me away and honestly i’ve become exhausted
libra: tbh you are my exact opposite, and even tho you’re extremely pretty you’re actually condescending sometimes but other times you can be pretty cool, just not my cup of tea

@bladekindeyewear wanted people to make reaction images for whether or not his Homestuck theories turned out to be true. I’m late to the party, but w/e
1) I can’t draw (no don’t patronize me). also this was a lot funnier in my head I’ll have you know.
2) I’m not entirely sure about what the reading daggers are all about (the real travesty here), but I figured having daggers strapped over your eyes must be painful? that’s why he’s crying in both of these. it also probably doesn’t help that he was wrong in the second one.
When Prince’s manager called and asked me to direct “Kiss,” the first thing out of my mouth was, “I’d like to speak to Prince first, and I’m not doing it unless I can bring in my own hair, makeup, models and choreographer.” A few minutes later, Prince called me. He was charming. The conversation was brief and there was a lot of giggling on his end.
I was on a heavy vampire kick — I was into Anne Rice very early — so that’s where the black veil on the dancer’s head comes from. Prince was brilliant in terms of dance and choreography. You could show him something and three seconds later he could do it perfectly. He came to the set with buttons all over his pants. I said, “What’s with the buttons?” He said, “Should have told me you don’t like buttons.” He’s funnier than people know. I’d put him next to a six-foot-tall model and he would give me an expression like, “Are you kidding? Where’s my apple box?” He was the one who decided at the last minute to use Wendy Melvoin in the video. They had great chemistry, and they were funny together. Her facial expressions in that video were perfect.
