Hi guys!! I’m so ready for the new school year, and because BTS season is my favorite I decided to make a hugemasterpost related to that. This is actually going to be my very first MP, so I promise I’ll do my best. What will you find in this post? Tons of links about tips/study tips, organisation, other master posts, and things related to back to school season.

Here you’ll find interesting links or/and bts related for this new school year! :)
Any tips for writing situational comedy? Like, not just "Oh *normal joke*" but something that was set up by the situation. Idk if that made sense.
Mmm, I’m admittedly not a comedy writer but I’ll do my best.
Try to avoid the “I hate myself for laughing at this” kind of thing. Like old people falling down the stairs.
Don’t force it. If the situation doesn’t seem plausible it will mostly just be confusing. Yes a lot of comedy comes from things that we don’t expect but if it just doesn’t make any sense whatsoever it might be a problem.
Write what you think will be funny. Everyone has different tastes so just because one person doesn’t find it funny doesn’t mean someone else won’t.
Just be careful that it isn’t offensive. There is a line.
Know your audience. This is important for any form of writing but you can use this to make those kind of “you know when you’re…and this happens” kind of moments. Like if you think of “Modern Family” the show is based on the moments in everyday family life that we all go through—just a little exaggerated at times.
Use the element of surprise. If we see it coming it won’t be as funny. It would be like giving away the punchline ahead of time.
Along the same lines, try not to drag it out. Set it up and then get to the point.
This is a writing question. There is a fanfiction that I really loved, however it was never finished. I'm wondering if it is okay to finish the story. I would keep the idea the same but take the direction of the story differently. And I would give full credit to the original writer of the story. I've tried to contact the writer but I haven't gotten a response, probably because the last time they used the account was six years ago. Would I be in the wrong to finish what was never finished?
The answer is yes. Unless you have permission from the fanfic’s author, finishing their story would be wrong. If you managed to get into contact with the author and they gave you their blessing then you could, but otherwise no.
I know that sucks, but it’s the way it is.
What you can do, ultimately, is write your own version of the story from start to finish and give them credit at the beginning, link to it, credit the author as your inspiration, use the related works tag on AO3.
It’s not going to be the same and it’ll be a lot more work, but that’s what you can do. You can work at the beginning from the ground up. It’d be a retelling which is a much more ethically gray area and you’d join the ranks of most authors both fanfiction and published who write fanfic of a thing, of a thing, of a thing in different guises.
And that’s the best advice I can give. There’d be some who say don’t do it at all, but those people don’t usually realize how much every author is influenced by the works of others. After all, Star Wars is structurally (and visually) a “rip off” of Kurosawa’s Hidden Fortress. Most of Shakespeare’s plays were, in fact, “inspired” by other plays rather than springing directly from his skull. Not to mention the bevy of mythological and fairy tales retold due to being Common Domain.
Start by telling your own version of this story, you already want to do your own thing with it.
Credit the previous author as your inspiration. If you achieve popularity with your story, never forget to credit the other author. It doesn’t make you lesser. Acknowledging those who help us get to where we are helps us be better people, more honest, and more secure as artists.
Move on from there.
The trouble begins when we don’t acknowledge or credit those people in the past who have helped us and brainstormed with us. Those other fanfic writers and authors we read who inspired us. When we try to take credit for everything because we think it makes us sound more impressive. We are influenced by everything we read, everything we see in media, and even listen to over the radio.
Creativity doesn’t exist in a vacuum.
Sometimes, the only way to get the ending you want is to tell it yourself. However, to have that ending make sense, you’ve got to retell the whole thing from the ground up.
it’s yo’ girl polcry here to tell all you weenies about the realities of higher education bc university isn’t all vodka jellies and hungover seminars
LAYER YOUR CLOTHES.
University seminar rooms are either trying to prepare you to be the next Captain Scott or are like the depths of Satan’s armpit. There is no in between. You will either be dying of hypothermia or sweating. Camisoles are your best friend; so are lightweight jumpers or cardigans. The necessitate the removal of clothing while still remaining publicly decent. Always have a layer in your bag; it won’t take up much space and will save you from looking like a plucked Christmas turkey. Scarves also work as a makeshift blanket.
DON’T DO ALL YOUR READING.
“But polcry!” I hear you cry, “How else am I meant to learn anything, because I’m paying nine grand a year for eight contact hours a week!”
Well (Bachelor of Arts) folks, reading is not the answer. You know why? Because a lot of it is just going to repeat itself. There’s only so much to say on seventeenth-century Anglo-American migration patterns, and you will realise that by the third 100-page article. Do the required reading, but check the introduction and conclusion of each chapter first; they sum up the gist, and the inner paragraphs fill in the nitty-gritty and unnecessary. Skim through, note down anything of importance, and don’t spend countless hours rereading the same information from eight different sources.
The recommended and optional reading is pretty much for bulking up your knowledge - use these sources when you need to write an essay or if you know a question will come up on an exam. They can lead you onto some other literature, too.
BRING EARPLUGS AND AN EYEMASK.
University halls can be very hit-and-miss, and if you’re anything like me you need a good eight and a half hours of beauty sleep. Blinds fall down (only to never return to their original position), birds are obnoxiously early risers, and flatmates have sex loud enough for you to question whether you need to check if they’re alright. You still need to sleep. Plus, earplugs are also exceptionally useful for impromptu on-campus naps; I know from experience.
PHONE YOUR DAMN MOTHER.
/ mother-figure. This woman is the one who taught you to walk and talk and pee in a toilet. Admittedly, you might regress in those abilities while shitfaced, but the woman wants to know you’re okay. Phone/Skype/Facetime at least once a week, and humour her and answer all her questions as to whether you’re eating enough vegetables and attending all your lectures and using protection. She cares. Plus you get extra child kudos which can be exchanged for food and/or laundry services on your semi-annual trips home.
YOU’LL PROBABLY CRY. A LOT.
Over a boy (or a girl), over your shitty grade in that class in which you understood nothing but spent hours trying to, over the realisation it’s two o’clock in the morning and you’re standing in your kitchen in a pizza-stained onesie eating your flatmate’s three-day-old shepherd’s pie straight from the tupperware. Crying is good; crying is necessary. Crying shows that university hasn’t sapped the humanity from within you. Let it out, let it go, and carry on with being awesome.
But if crying on the regular becomes an issue, speak to your university’s health centre about seeing a therapist. They are there to help.
YOU MIGHT NOT MAKE FRIENDS STRAIGHT AWAY.
And that’s okay. For some people, you become besties with your flatmate on the first day. For others, it takes a couple of years. Flatmates =/= friends, not necessarily. It’s okay for them to be simply people you live with. It might be that people on your course understand you better; or people in societies share hobbies and interests with you. Spread yourself into several social groups and see who sticks. Don’t invest yourself in them if they’re not willing to invest themselves in you, but be prepared to do some of the initial legwork in socialising. Coffee is always a good place to start.
DON’T GET HUNG UP ABOUT GETTING LAID.
I like sex as much as the next person, don’t get me wrong. And it may seem that everyone else is getting it on 24/7. But seriously, sex isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. While everyone is Tindering and pulling at clubs, you can take that opportunity to make memories or study or *gasp* make meaningful, lifelong bonds with people you genuinely care about.
And if you are having sex, good for you! Have as much sex as you desire. Just be safe, use the necessary contraception (including barrier methods please!!), get tested regularly (you can find your local GUM clinic here) and make sure somebody knows where you are at all times. You can have sex with whomever you please - provided it’s within your university’s code of conduct; current lecturers tend to be off limits, and for good reason bc frankly that’s kind of creepy - but be careful of your reputation. Word spreads fast, and it’s easy to be taken advantage of without realising and you could potentially end up in a situation you don’t want to be in. Be sensible.
UNIVERSITY IS NOT FOR EVERYONE.
Despite what everyone seems to think, university isn’t the right path for everyone. Whilst it’s an unavoidable necessity for some careers, a lot of industries provide progress within a company, or apprenticeships. £9000 a year is a lot to spend on something you’re not sure will get you where you want to be, or something you just don’t enjoy.
Dropping out isn’t shameful; it’s sensible. There’s nothing deplorable about admitting it’s not right for you. It’s your decision to make and your life to live.
For some, university is a fantastic experience. For some, university sucks but is a necessary evil for them to enter their dream jobs. For most, it’s somewhere in the middle. Enjoy your time there, make the most of the weird quasi-independence, and try and actually get some good grades. And bring earplugs. Trust me.
This. I was just watching Supernatural, and then I see this. Dean and Cas are literally lost in each other’s eyes. They look like they’re standing at an alter about to get married. And Sam’s just back there as a third wheel, and you can just tell that he feels awkward. He can see something’s going on. That’s even better because the title of the episode is “The Third Man”. Sam is literally the third man. He looks so unamoosed. It looks like he’s just thinking, “Oh my gosh, guys. You’re making the moose uncomfortable. Just kiss already, but not in front of moose. Moose would feel awkward.” Too perfect
The same way you eat an elephant: a little bit at a time.
After my first day of orientation at my new job, I learned the truth behind students able to recall old information days, weeks, and even months after learning it. You don’t bite off more than you can chew, nor do you cram hours of studying before an important exam– we know it’s ineffective.
If you have two hours to dedicate to studying material, you break up those hours; one hour this week, and one hour the next. The key to retention is repetition. Spend an hour reviewing material you learned the day prior, then spend the next day reviewing said material in half the time– sixty minutes becomes thirty, thirty becomes fifteen, fifteen becomes ten, ten becomes five– and within a week, you’ll have retained everything you learned including new information.
Test yourself at the end of each week, if necessary; write down all the information you can recall and fill in the blanks where necessary. The more often you study, the more you write, the less you forget, the more successful you are in your studies.
