Prompt from @agthoven and @akanue: You should do one where Lucifer stumbles
across that Casa Erotica video where Gabriel says his goodbye, but his grace
makes it respond to each viewer differently.
Summary: Lucifer finds a DVD infused with angelic
grace. They say curiosity killed the
cat, but in this case, forgiveness can heal the heart.
Lucifer wandered around the bunker aimlessly. He would give anything to be able to go out
and stir up some mischief, but he had to stay low on the radar. If the Winchesters found out he was in
Castiel’s meat suit, they would do everything in their power to put him back in
the cage. So, until he was ready, he had
to play his part. Which meant spending
time at the bunker. All in all, it wasn’t
too horrible…when he was alone. There
was some neat stuff to mess with in here!
He turned the corner and found himself in the ‘entertainment’
room, as the boys called it. It was
really nothing more than an old bedroom with shelves filled with movies and
games. Lucifer was going to just move
on, but that was when he felt the pull.
It was as if something reached out and placed a
hand on his arm, gently pulling him in.
It wasn’t a pull on his physical being, but on his grace. Curiosity came over him as he followed the
pull. It brought him to an unmarked DVD
case. It amazed him as he held it
up. It was infused with just a bit of
He walked over to the television and inserted the
disc. There was a feeling inching its
way into his heart, almost an anxiety of what he would find. Why would some human object hold the grace of
one of his brothers or sisters?
His shock overtook him, his breath caught in his
throat as he saw Gabriel come on the screen with an incredibly fake mustache
Just a tip for you straight people hating on Alex and Maggie, when trying to argue, make sure you know what you’re talking about or else you’ll just sound ridiculous like this person who actually thinks bisexuality is being equally attracted to men and women.
I got a crit reader comment on a draft I’m writing a bit ago that seemed to assume that more than two POV characters in a work was too many.
At the time I wasn’t quite sure what they were getting at, but that’s what it seems to me. (They said something like “why am I on page x and this is the 3rd POV” and I answered with a reasoned explanation of which character had access to which different info. But I think that’s not why they were asking.)
I rely really heavily on tight POVs in my work. If I’m stalled, it’s almost always because I’m considering a scene from the wrong POV. I sometimes decide at the beginning of a work that I will avoid one character’s POV, or favor another’s– ex. Full Of Grace, where Bucky has no direct POV scenes, only videos. But I normally utilize three or four, in a longer work. There will often be a character who only gets one or two scenes, with outsider perspective– I try to keep this to a minimum but I do use it once or twice; in ensemble casts, I generally sort of try to alternate regularly among two or three.
Apparently this is wrong? What is the Acceptable Number of POVs in a novel-length work? Is there a formula or a solid number or what?
Or is this one of those things that’s different from fanfic to pro fic, like how every fandom’s Top Classic Defining Work is always present tense but if you workshop a present-tense work at a writing class they will eat you alive?
Every now and then, she goes online to see what people say about her. It’s something she’s started doing back in the day, and three years later it’s still a habit she hasn’t kicked. When she opens her MacBook and starts sharing random bits and pieces of comments people leave on her videos, she looks up into brown eyes that look at her in sweet disapproval as if to say why do you even bother.
There are a lot of nice things people say about her. Loads of ‘you are gorgeous’ and ‘you’re so funny’ and ‘your videos help me a lot’. She likes those comments, she really does. But once every week, mostly on Sunday mornings when the other girl sleeps in, she checks the other videos. The one where she is featured in collaborations. More particularly, videos where she’s doing something, anything, with Grace.
Do they ship Joey and you?
They ship Joey and I.
What’s the ship name? Is it cute?
Groey. It’s very hard to combine Joey and Grace.
That’s stupid. That ships deserves a cannonball.
She likes watching older videos, because she can tell exactly what the last video was before she ended up kissing Grace outside on the deck, and the first video since that evening. Something had changed. She didn’t know whether their audiences picked up on it; she didn’t know whether Mamrie had picked up on it. All she knows is that from the very first night she kissed Grace Helbig, she changed.
There is should be a youtube tag challenge video called ‘Was it a DailyGrace video?’ where youtubers write a load of Grace videos in a bowl, some real and some fake and they have to guess if it was really a video.
because lets be honest, there are some strange names for her videos.
I have been seeing a lot of posts recently stating at Grace's videos are lacking and are no where near as good as her old ones, what's you thoughts?
I think the content Grace is producing is amazing. I love the podcast and podcast videos, her Wednesday videos always make me laugh, and I always look forward to fridiary. I think cutting down to 3 days did her wonders.
The Wednesday videos may not always be as on point as they have been in the past but they are still damn entertaining and I love them, even if I didn’t who am I to complain it’s free content and it’s not gonna always be perfect (although 9/10 it is). Grace seems happy and at the end of the day that makes me happy so I’m not going to slate her for doing an amazing job and promoting the stuff that she is God damn proud of creating.
Am I the only one who wants a grace video where she basically shows off all her gymnastics skills she learned when she was younger? Because I thinks she’s got more gymnastics talent than she’s letting on 😏😏
