yeah it should have its tag

Can’t go to Interactive Introverts because your parents said no/will say no? This is for you!

Hello everyone, my name is Paige, and I am really freaking good at convincing parents of things. I grew up with two very strict and overprotective (though loving and awesome) parents, and so I’ve had the perfect life experience to give you this advice. Buckle up.

Are you a fan of Dan and Phil, who is super excited about their oncoming tour, Interactive Introverts, but your parents won’t let you go? Here is how to convince them you should. (Most of these also work for other special trips, such as going to a concert.)

Please reblog this so it can reach all the people who need it :D

Step-by-step guide under the cut!

Drunk

Dean Winchester x Reader

1250 Words

Story Summary: Requested by  @gabuchitop:  Can you make Dean Winchester x reader where the reader is in bar and get drunk and then call Dean to take her home.After that Dean take her at the bunker and she kissed him and blame the alcohol and in the end they end up together..thank you so much

It wasn’t very often you let yourself go. As in drinking as much as you wanted, forgetting that your life was a train wreck. But after nothing but hunts for the past month, seeing people you couldn’t save, you needed to let off a little steam.

Dean had offered to come with you, but you needed to be by yourself. If Dean was there, you would only have eyes for him, and he would only have eyes for the bar tender, or the waitress in the skimpy skirt. Then, you would end up miserable and drunk, crying yourself to sleep in bed once again. And you couldn’t take that. So, you figured you would come and drink, and maybe find some strapping man to get your mind off the green eyes that seemed to haunt your every waking moment.

Crafting Effective Dialogue

I am going to do my best to give you tips on how to create effective dialogue, as crafting effective dialogue is a very difficult thing for many writers, including myself, to do. Back in December I did a high school visit. The teacher told me her creative writing students had issues creating effective dialogue, so I played an activity with them. I’m not sure how successful it was, but I hope they took something away from it. In any case, I’m going to draw upon that activity to lay out some tips here. 

This post will be longer than my Creating Effective Action Scene post. 

  • Dialogue should reveal something about the character. Dialogue is an effective way of showing something about a character, or conveying how a character is feeling. Here is a line of dialogue from my novel, When Stars Die. A little bit of context first: Amelia is currently spying on shadows she has been seeing for a few weeks. She has no idea why she has been seeing them, but something in her tells her that they are real.

Colette’s voice rises behind me, a quiet thing in the tremors of my mind. “Are you searching for those shadows again?” 

 This conveys a few things. The line before it shows that Amelia is terrified, that not even Colette’s presence is enough to calm her. Colette is her best friend. Colette’s dialogue conveys that she knows Amelia has been seeing these shadows for some time, but that she doesn’t believe they’re real. After this dialogue, Amelia thinks how she has no reason to tell Colette that she is seeing them. Now I could have had Amelia simply say that Colette doesn’t believe the shadows are real, but instead I follow up with another line of dialogue that has Colette trying to ease Amelia’s worries by telling her that it’s stress for the impending trials that Amelia will have to face if she wants to become a professed nun.

  • Dialogue should reflect a character’s personality. If your character is a well-read person, that character’s dialogue should reflect that he or she is. If your character skips school a lot, lives a troubled life, and wanders the streets a lot, your character is probably going to cuss more than usual, have a more cynical way of speaking, and your character is probably going to be more honest and forthright when others are asking for opinions from said character. But don’t fall into stereotypes, either.
  • Dialogue should be authentic, but should be an edited version of a way a person would speak. Listen to how people speak. People tend to put a lot of ‘umms,’ ‘ers,’ ‘likes,’ ’yeahs,’ and pauses and breaks between sentences, which is not something readers want. You want dialogue to be real, but you don’t want to litter your sentences with these inflections. For example:

“Um…I, uh, want to order some fries, and uh…what’s that up there? Oh, a burger. Yeah, um. I want that.” She nods. “Yeah, yeah. That sounds good, and uh, um…oh…that’s it.”

That’s how a real indecisive person would talk. Let’s edit it down to something like this. 

“Um…I want to order some fries.” She pauses, looking up at the menu. “What’s that up there? Oh, a burger. I want that, too. That sounds good.” Her eyes pass over the menu, then she looks at the cashier. “That’s it. Thanks!”

Just listen to the way an actual person speaks and edit out any inflections. Read your dialogue out loud, too. If it sounds funny, it will probably read odd to your readers. 

  • Show the tone of your dialogue. You want to limit your use of adverbs when writing a story. Period. You especially want to try to avoid them in dialogue. Strong verbs are often best used in place of adverbs, but let me give you an example to show you what I’m talking about when I say show the tone of your dialogue. 

“I am so pissed!” he said harshly. 

This is basically me telling readers that he said it harshly. Now let me show you:

His finger tensed on the screen of his smartphone. He wanted to smash the phone so he could forget she ever sent him that text. “I am so pissed!”

It’s wordier, of course, but the fact that he wants to smash his phone conveys how angry he is without having to use an adverb. I didn’t even have to use a dialogue tag because of the preceding sentences. If there is plenty of context before your dialogue, you can simply write “I am so pissed!” and that will be enough to let readers know that, obviously, he’s saying it harshly. 

  • Dialogue should stand on its own. You don’t want to weigh it down with exposition. For example:

“Remember last summer when I kissed that guy and you were there? You were totally stunned when I kissed him, and you told me I was an idiot.”

“Yeah, and we were in the 9th grade, too! Now we’re in the 10th grade, and there’s this other guy you want to kiss, and you’re not going to be an idiot this time, because this guy is cute.”

Can you tell this dialogue is actually talking to the reader and not the characters talking among themselves? You shouldn’t have to have the characters tell readers about what happened last summer, that they were in the 9th grade when it happened, now they’re in the 10th grade, and now there is another boy this person wants to kiss. 

It reads and sounds unnatural. Exposition only works when the other character has no knowledge of the thing being explained. Otherwise, it’s an info dump, and you don’t want that in your dialogue. 

  • Your dialogue should have purpose. Dialogue should build toward something or reveal something. You don’t want your characters to spend too long, bantering back and forth about something that may be completely irrelevant to the plot. Your characters must speak for a reason. They shouldn’t talk just to talk, like people tend to do in real life.
  • Use gestures, actions, and dialogue tags. Dialogue tags should be used when readers have no clue who is speaking, or when an action is proceeding the dialogue spoken. Nodding, smiling, laughing, glaring, pointing, ect., ect., ect., are all forms of gestures. Use these to convey the tone of dialogue. Have your characters interact with the environment, too, while they are speaking. That is considered an action. Refer to the dialogue examples above for examples of actions I use to strengthen dialogue. 

 

  • Dialogue should be surprising. You don’t want readers to be able to know what a character is going to say next. 

That’s it for my advice on dialogue! Any questions on anything in the post, feel free to message me.

My next post will be advice on how to handle your editor once you have signed a contract with a publisher, for those aspiring authors—or how to handle edits period with either your agent or editor.

stop telling real people to kill themselves over shit that doesn’t actually matter.

you’re not helping anyone. you’re not saving the world. you’re not stopping pedophilia. all you’re doing is adding fuel to the fire and hurting real people. the anti movement just harms people. that’s all it does. i have yet to see a real change the anti movement has made.

you want to make change? get up, go outside and start volunteering your time, talent, and treasure to a real cause that actually combats these issues. online policing and sending death threats won’t help anyone. what are you trying to achieve?

and stop hiding behind csa survivors and stop hiding behind minors. people are responsible for themselves. beyond tagging their works creators don’t owe you anything. they don’t have to stop making content you dont like. please just block them and move on. download xkit and blacklist tags you don’t like. that’s so much better for you and other people than sending death threats, creating block lists, and tearing people down.

if you’re uncomfortable with a ship that’s ok. you dont have to like it. if you dont want people who ship it to follow you that is also okay. if somebody asks me to unfollow them for any reason i will because i understand that they’re trying to control what they see and i honestly applaud that. i actually think its okay to hate on something as long as you do it within your tags and dont try to cross tag. what’s not okay is telling people they should die for what they believe. nobody deserves to be told to die. nobody ever does and nobody ever will. there are going to be some people who say ‘yeah but this group of people does’ and let me tell you something: you have no right to condemn any group of people for any reason whatsoever.

if you disagree do yourself a favor and just block me.

Locked Down

Pairings: Demon! Dean Winchester x Reader

Warnings: Smut, restraints, unprotected sex, oral, mild roughness, restraint injuries, swearing, slightly dub con (but not really)

Word Count: 1280

Summary: You need to keep Dean locked down until Sam gets there

A/N: Okay, okay I did it and wrote a Dean fic for the first time in sooo long! And what better way than to go with sexy filth? It had been an idea that I’d had for a while and it seemed that demon! Dean was the best fit, hope you guys like it ! 


You flatten your tongue against the bulging vein in the side of his neck, humming at the salty taste of his sweat slicked skin as he pulled against his bonds. The metal was beginning to cut into the skin of his wrists, rivulets of blood spilling down onto the engraved demon trap in each cuff; but he didn’t seem to mind, obsidian orbs glinting at you in the dim lighting. He wasn’t much of a danger to you while he was trapped like this but the thought of what he could do sent a shiver down your spine, arousal pooling in the deep pit of your belly.

You shouldn’t have been attracted to him like this and you definitely shouldn’t be more turned on then you had been in months, but you couldn’t deny that this Dean, with no guilt and no inhibitions weighing him down was giving you all kinds of dirty fantasies. You’d hooked up with him from time to time when he’d been human and you’d crossed paths over hunts but you’d always harbored a small crush on the eldest winchester. Apparently him dying and coming back as a demon hadn’t done much to quell the feelings you had for him.

A deep growl resonated in the back of his throat as you dragged one of your fingernails down the very center of his chest, stopping right at the buckle of his jeans. You’d perched yourself in his lap, legs draped over his thighs and you could feel how hard he was getting.

“You’re playing a dangerous game y/n,” Dean ground out between grit teeth. “As soon as I’m free sweetheart -”
“Dean,” You simpered, cutting across the rest of his threat with a frown. “The only way you’re getting out of these bonds is if I let you out and I’ve got strict instructions from Sam to keep you locked down until he gets here.”  You pinched one of his nipples through his shirt and he growled again, tipping his head back on his shoulders. “Doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun for a few hours though.”

anonymous asked:

you nct fans hype them up wayyyyyy to much. I heard the teaser and it wasnt even that good. they dont deserve everything they are getting, meanwhile sm completely ignores talented groups like red velvet

Okay so first of all, just by reading this I can tell that this isn’t about NCT at all. You’re just salty because SM promotes them well while Red Velvet gets the short end of the stick, which I can understand. Nothing wrong with that, I mean if you feel SM isn’t being fair, that’s how you feel. Secondly, of course we are going to hype NCT up. What fandom doesn’t go crazy when their favorites release something? Thirdly, I mean, obviously you have some interest in NCT if you bothered to click on the video and sent this message. You could have easily scrolled past it and keep living your life, but you didn’t. You clicked on the video, watched it, and then sent this message to me, an NCT stan. I don’t even know why you bothered, like did you think I was going to agree with you?  Fourth of all, if ANY fandom should be angry here it's the f(x) fandom. Now there’s a group who really gets NOTHING from their company. I’ve seen Red Velvet stans in the freaking NCT tag on tumblr (which by the fucking way can we keep the NCT tag instead of bombarding it with other things?) complaining about how SM went all out and is announcing NCT’s new fandom name too soon. Like boo, didn’t f(x) have to wait FUCKING years for their fandom name!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Do I think SM plays favorites? Heck yeah they do! There’s no denying that. But does Red Velvet really have it the worst. No, they don’t, f(x) does. Because at least Red Velvet is on variety shows, dramas, and things like that. The f(x) members seriously get nothing, I mean you got Amber spilling tea on instagram about how SM isn’t letting her pursue her music, now there’s someone who is really suffering. Yeah Red Velvet fans had to wait a while to get their fandom name, and yeah SM should have gone all out for them too because those girls seriously deserve it, they’re amazing, but boo, f(x) has it so much worst. f(x) are actually ignored by SM, Red Velvet is not. Anyways, I'm probably going to block messages for a while because I’ve been in arguments with Red Velvet stans before and I honestly don’t feel like going through that again. I don’t wanna fight, I just want to peacefully enjoy my bias groups comeback, please and thank you.  

Muffet art, because why not.

But I lost ideas (because I drew all ideas I had), so do you have some?

Now I can say what sky is beautiful tonight (it’s 9 pm when I was making this post), so maybe I’ll drew something with stars I guess.

Stay Determined :)

Pet Store Blues Ep. 6 or something

*walks over to a couple crouching over by the goldfish section which you know will always lead to a thrilling ride*

Customer: Hi, so we have a small tank… err… I’m not sure how large, maybe… *points to a 20L tank on display* We set it up maybe… err… 2 days ago? So it’s been running a long time. So we just want 4 goldfish.

Does anyone know the feeling where you’re smiling and nodding through their speech but inside, you’re wondering how you’re gonna seamlessly transition from being polite and sweet to wrecking their plans (hopefully still politely as possible)? 

Me: *inserts goldfish info* 

Okay, so here’s where I always feel guilty because my boss is a nice, responsible and knowledgeable guy but he’s also running a small business so it is expected of us to still sell a single goldfish to customers with inadequate set ups after doing our best to educate them and asking they return it as soon as it becomes too large. 

Me: So unfortunately guys, buying 4 goldfish today will most likely only end in a lot of water changes for you and a lot of suffering for the four little fish, it’d be best if you bought one small goldfish in a few weeks and I ran you through cycl – 

Customer: – -Yeah, okay, whatever. We still just want 4 goldfish. 

They actually said that? 

Me: *gets that spider sense feeling where you become sure they don’t actually own de-chlorinator* Hang on, have you used a water conditioner yet?

Customer: What is that, is that the …err…. the carbon filter thing? My brother said I didn’t need the carbon filter.

Me: *tries to sell them water conditioner, stability, aquarium salt, decent food and the idea on researching a bit more before buying a live animal*

Customer: Yeah, I don’t know. I think I’ll ask my brother if I actually need the de-chlorinator, he has goldfish. I’m not gonna get scammed into buying useless junk, sorry. 

*smiles at me and leaves*

Abandoned Video //Colby Brock\

This is my first imagine so I’m sorry if it’s not very good I will try and get better so my apologies for any mistakes or errors.

Anyways let’s get on with the imagine

Originally posted by colbybrockstars

“I can’t believe you talked me into doing this” You say to your boyfriend Colby who talked you around to doing a video at abandoned place with Him, Sam and Corey and luckily you wasn’t the only one who was scared about this luckily Corey felt the same away and agreed with you when you asked if you could stay in the car while Sam and Colby go exploring but no they were dead set sure on making both of you tag along with them.


They did there intro and everything became more real even though you were bricking it you couldn’t help but feel kind of excited about exploring an abandoned place, It was getting a little dark which made everything a million times more scarier. “Guys can we leave?” Corey asked sounding anxious “Yeah maybe we should guys its getting darker and we have at least a two mile walk back to the car and honestly i don’t feel okay being here anymore” You say you had an outburst of mixed emotions being here now in the darkness.


“Yeah i think we should Sam” Colby said in agreement just then we heard something that sounded like a women screaming you immediately got really scared to the point of tears, then you heard footsteps getting closer to you at this point you all knew that this was not a prank and that you needed to get out of there or well away from there “Come babe” Colby said grabbing your hand and running behind Corey but just in front of Sam, We must have ran half a mile without stopping but you all got out of breath and chose to stop to catch it before someone pasted out.


You were still shook up about what you heard back there and Colby knew and immediately pulled you closer to him “I’m sorry” He said “You have nothing to be sorry about” you say “I do i dragged you out here and could have gotten you in danger” Colby said sounding really hurt “Colby i had fun i’m glad you dragged me along and i would happily do it all again” you say kissing Colby “I love you” He said “Can we cuddle tonight please?” You asked not really wanting to be alone


Colby smiled “Of course is that even a question?” he asked and you smiled at him and luckily you all got home in one peace without any ghost or demon attacks.


{I hope you enjoyed and once again sorry for any mistakes}

“If I ask nicely, will you do it?”

it looks up. You never noticed that it makes noises. The last time you saw it, face to face (skies, blood, fragments, fear or no fear), you didn’t notice the noise.

The noise alone is overwhelming: it’s not even auditory anymore. It’s just vibration, humming, deep in everything around you, deep in you. It goes through everything.

it doesn’t answer just yet.

Freedom Found and Lost
  • John Laurens x Reader
  • Hamiltime
  • Prompt: two people, running away from a blind arranged marriage, in which one is supposed to marry the other, meet in the roady coincidence and fall in love with each other.
  • Idea from @writing-prompt-s

A/N: I thought this would be a fun story idea so I decided I’d write it. I said you guys would probably see the angsty ending a mile away but I hopefully made it as painful as possible. But, until you reach the angst, it’s just a pile of fluff. So I hope you enjoy this, I hope it stabs you in the heart, and hope you won’t hate me too much once you finish it.

“What?” You asked in a shaky voice.

“We set up a marriage for you.” Your mom told you.

“Why?” You asked.

“Because you need a promising match and this man is just that.” Your mom explained.

“But…I don’t want to marry some man I’ve never met.” You argued.

“Well, you’ll be meeting him tomorrow.” Your father spoke up.

“Tomorrow?” You asked appalled. Both of your parents nodded. “I don’t want to marry someone that doesn’t know me. Or someone who I don’t know.”

“Y/N, it’s decided. Tomorrow you will meet this suitor and, in a few months, you will marry them.” Your father told you. His tone let you know that you weren’t getting out of this. So you just sighed and hung your head. You went to your room and made sure to slam the door with as much force as possible. You may accept this, but you didn’t (and wouldn’t) be happy about it.

You sighed as you looked out your window. You didn’t need a promising match. You’re family had acres of land, you were well off. You used to trek across your lands as a child so you knew it well. You knew just how much of it you had. You knew if you inherited it then you would never need to marry someone. But you knew your parents would never let you out of it.

“I never even wanted to get married anyway.” You grumbled to yourself. “Be a picture perfect wife who cooks and cleans and prances around in dresses just to make the husband look good. I want to be free to live my own life.” You looked down at your lands once more. “And maybe I can be.” You pondered. You could slip out the window right now and no one would know, you could walk off the land and be on your own. It wouldn’t be hard.

No. It would be hard. Disobeying your parents like that. However, if they failed to show you any respect, why did you have to show them any? So you grabbed a small bag and tossed some dresses in there. You slipped from the window. You ran across the fields and ducked into the surrounding woods.

“Excuse me?” John asked his father, a challenge in his voice.

“I arranged a marriage. She’s a fine girl and her family has plenty of land. Once you marry, you’ll be the successor.” His father explained.

“So this match was made to secure more land?” John challenged once more.
