My brother and I were talking star wars legos, and this is what we came up with.

Han Solo: *walks onto the bridge on star killer base* BEN!

Kylo ren: *walks onto same bridge*

Han: take off your mask

Kylo ren: *takes off his mask to reveal that he is Jar jar Binks, not Kylo ren*

Han: Where is my son?

Jar Jar: He was weak, so I consumed him.

Han: *gasp of horror* you ate my son!








yo but

the direct parallel of Bellamy and Emori’s breakdowns, tho

they’ve both been in such pain for so much of their lives, they’ve both been treated like crap by their own people, they both “lost” their siblings a.k.a. the only family they’ve ever had, they’re both beyond used to having to do things they don’t even think about whether they agree with anymore to survive


she did it bcos she was tryna save herself 

he did it bcos he couldn’t save someone else

Can I be honest? I feel a little bad sometimes that I like yoi because it's yaoi and I read somewhere that yaoi, in itself, is homophobic, which makes sense to me, because, it's targeted towards girls who, presumably, fetishize gay men. But I didn't know what yaoi was when I started to watch yoi, I had only learned of the term much more recently. I watched yoi because, being a queer female, I was desperate for gay content. Does that make me homophobic then, for watching and enjoying yoi?

Never feel bad about watching yoi, which isn’t a yaoi/porn anyway lmao obviously. It’s just got a gay couple instead of a straight one and just like i (gay male) ship my straight pairings in Doctor Who, i don’t see why straight girls and boys can’t ship a gay pairing?

anonymous asked:

Is there any way to make a plot twist in a way where it doesn't seem like it came out of nowhere? That's my biggest problem, people always tell me that my plot twists feel weird and unnatural.


There definitely is – foreshadow. Drop subtle but clear hints about what’s coming all throughout the novel, so that when your readers look back it will be clear that those hints indicated your plot twist.

As an example, I’ll use The Shining by Stephen King (one of my favorite books ever). *SPOILER ALERT!*

Danny Torrance, the protagonist, is a five-year-old with telepathic powers. He has a visitor (his parents call it his imaginary friend, but it’s not) named Tony who sometimes shows him things: Tony once showed him where to find a trunk containing his father’s manuscripts; Tony also shows him horrible things happening in the hotel in which his family will be spending the winter (up in the mountains of Colorado, so they’ll be snowed in). After Danny has a semi-catatonic episode, his parents take him for a medical checkup, just to be sure of his health before they’re snowed in for three months.

The pediatrician, of course, speaks to Danny during/after his checkup, and acts somewhat as a psychiatrist; he then speaks to his parents about his diagnosis (which is nothing serious – only stress). His opinion on Tony is that he was created to deal with hard times (moving, and Danny’s parents considering divorce), and Danny no longer needs Tony, because the family is rebounding; however, Tony isn’t leaving easily, hence the nightmares Danny complains of, and the fainting spell he had. Then the pediatrician says to Mr. and Mrs. Torrance something along the lines of “And of course, you know why he’s named Tony and not Michael or Greg”, and during my first time reading, I didn’t understand what he meant. After the plot twist, it clicked.

Also, it is mentioned that Danny was born with a caul over his face, which superstition says signifies a child gifted with the second sight (in other words, the child will be able to see the future). At the time, this – and what it implies – seems like a secondary detail. Again, at the plot twist it is clear that it actually means more.

The plot twist occurs during Tony’s last visit, which takes place during the novel’s climax. During his last powow with Danny, he comes closer, into Danny’s field of vision – Danny has never seen Tony’s face before, so this is a significant event. Tony looks just like Danny, but older – still young, but maybe 11 instead of 5. Then, in the prose, Stephen King writes Danny’s full name, middle name included, which doesn’t happen at any other place in the novel: his full name is Daniel Anthony Torrance, or in other terms, Danny “Tony” Torrance. The conclusion drawn from this is that Tony is actually Danny from the future, and that Danny has both telepathy and second sight.

This plot twist grows roots throughout the book: how Danny never sees Tony’s face, how Danny was born with something said to promise the second sight, the psychiatrist’s comment on Tony’s name. Basically, Stephen King lays everything on the table without giving us the one detail everything stems from – if it was drawn as a chart, all these small details would surround one big box in the middle, and until the plot twist, that big box would be blank. After the plot twist, that box would be filled in with TONY IS AN OLDER VERSION OF DANNY AND DANNY HAS PRECOGNITIVE VISIONS. That’s what you need to do: lay everything out for the reader except the actual plot twist itself.

I hope this was helpful! If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask! - @authors-haven

What if Niki was turned into a little kid and sent to present Saruhiko in S4?

Fushimi would probably wonder if he can return to sender on that particular delivery. It would be interesting to see if his reaction changed depending on how young Niki is and how he acted, like maybe a three year old Niki is mostly just a bit bratty but ten year old Niki is a terror who keeps looking for a magnifying glass he can use to burn ants with on the windowsill. Fushimi probably wouldn’t want to watch little kid Niki, like the moment he realizes who the kid in front of him is his face twists and he tries to just walk away. Assuming it’s some kind of Strain thing maybe part of the power means Fushimi has to stay close to little Niki and so he’s basically stuck dragging the kid around and Fushimi doesn’t really know how to feel about that – Fushimi always acts like kids annoy him but he’s generally pretty good with them. Niki on the other hand is something completely different for him, Fushimi can’t really separate the kid in front of him with all the bad memories of the person that child will become. I feel like even if Niki was perfectly well behaved it would be hard for Fushimi to treat him normally, there would always be this underlying hostility and tension behind his movements that the kid can’t help but pick up on. Especially since Niki was probably a pretty perceptive kid, I could see him watching Fushimi and noticing that even when Fushimi says things to him that aren’t harsh there’s an undercurrent behind it that makes young Niki wonder if he’s done something wrong and why this guy who’s supposed to be watching him is mad at him.

If Niki was a little shit as a kid too I think that would be extra hard for Fushimi to deal with, like he keeps trying to ignore all the hints that this kid is going to become a terror when he grows up but it’s clear that Niki was an ass from the start. Maybe Yata comes to check on Fushimi and finds out that he’s watching little Niki, he tries to suggest that well maybe if you show the kid that acting that way is wrong he’ll grow up to be less of an asshole. Except for all that Fushimi tries to be calm kid Niki just keeps purposefully pushing his buttons and doing things to get a rise out of him, even to the point that Fushimi finds himself almost feeling afraid of a kid. And of course he feels ridiculous for it, like here’s a Niki who can’t look down on him, who has no power over him and yet Fushimi finds himself feeling like a child again, just dragged along as Niki cause trouble and messes with Fushimi’s things and is just basically trying to make Fushimi’s life miserable once again in any way that a small child can. And then when Fushimi finally snaps and yells at him to cut it out and go in the corner or something Niki just laughs and acts like Fushimi’s being so cruel to him and even though Fushimi knows that this is just Niki trying to play with him Fushimi feels like an asshole himself, like is he really any better than Niki because he’s losing it at a little kid and Fushimi pretty much just wants to shove Niki at anyone else and go hide in his room until the whole thing blows over.


Here ya go. More of Carlos’ wondrous voice, plus Britney Coleman! From Starkids’ Twisted production :3
