Exposition is a finely balanced art in storytelling, one which has to be treated with an overabundance of care. Of course, the audience for a story is not going to enter that world already knowing every crumb of expositional material. Not only would such a story be terribly boring, but it would also be devoid of any surprise or depth to characters’ motivations or views.
That said, exposition is so difficult for storytellers precisely because the audience knows it can be painfully unrealistic. No one in real life turns to his or her neighbor and presents an immediately apparent fact, or a fact the intended recipient would be expected to know (need I remind anyone of “I am Obara Sand, daughter of Oberyn Martell” - said to a man who has every reason to know who she is). Done incorrectly, then, exposition breaks the barrier between story and audience; we, the readers or watchers, get the sense that what is told on screen, on stage, or on the page is done only for our benefit. We’re reminded that we’re reading or watching a story, that none of this is really happening. So, if the audience cannot believe that a character in-universe would not know what is being told to him or her, or would not ask about the subject matter at hand, the exposition does not work.
All of the above is preface to discussion of one of my very favorite examples of exposition in ASOIAF: the end of “Alayne II”, A Feast for Crows. The author had a difficult task in front of him: explaining in greater detail Harry the Heir’s connection to House Arryn and his very high place in the succession to rulership of the Vale. Genealogical tables, while (obviously) fascinating to me, hardly make gripping story points, after all, and even the most talented writer would be hard-pressed to turn tracing lordly descent from a great-grandfather to the heir apparent an exciting experience. How boring it might have been to have Harry’s Arryn lineage revealed in some young Princess Victoria-esque way - a ponderous review of a written chart and subsequent declaration that Harry is “closer to the (weirwood) throne than I thought”.
So how did the author solve the problem? By constructing the narrative of Sansa’s Vale arc so that Littlefinger’s exposition at its end not only fulfills the promise of Harry Hardyng’s importance, but crowns Sansa’s developing political education as well. The manner in which Littlefinger explains who Harry the Heir is fits perfectly with his own character and develops the dynamic of political calculation established in “Alayne I”. In ensuring that the exposition which ends “Alayne II” springs naturally from the personality and development of these two characters, the author dispels the danger which writing exposition poses.
When we last left Alayne Stone in the Vale, we left her on … an almost surprising and positive note. It’s Day 0 of the Tourney she’s put together for the Lord of the Vale; noting that Sweetrobin takes solace in stories of the Winged Knight, Artys Arryn, Sansa concocts her very first “scheme” as a ‘player’ (a term I use loosely); surround the Lord of the Eyrie with his own bodyguard of “Winged Knights” to give him a sense of security. And what better a way to choose these Winged Knights than to make it a spectacle- invite every young, single knight in the Vale to compete for the positions.
tbh out of all four Beatles’ solo careers, George Harrison’s has touched my heart in a sweet way and never failed to lighten up my day when I feel bad. He just had a lot of genuine love to give, and it shone through his music, and his love for it as well as others.

you how to fight with it and the two of you would practice together

So I know you've kind of done a bit of it already but in the obi wan and jango fett au can you write anakins reaction to them being together? Pretty please?
The brat has been glaring at him since
the moment he arrived on Kamino. And has latched onto Kenobi like a
leech, hardly giving the man a moment of peace and alone time since.
The copper haired man doesn’t even seem
to have noticed it, busy watching the tubes of his clones in
At least Skywalker doesn’t mind Boba or
the younger clones when they come and catch Obi-Wan’s attention, some
of them pulling him away by his hand with obvious awe in their eyes
for the older Jedi.
It seems to relax him though he’s wary
around the older clones.
But its only Jango he glares at with
A week of glaring and the blond acting
like a possessive dog over a bone was getting to him, especially
since he hadn’t had any time alone with Obi-Wan, bar a few seconds
where he had managed to pull the other into a hug only to be
interrupted by a repentant looking Fives when he noticed they were
He needed to talk to Obi-Wan about his
padawan’s behavior, it was getting on his last kriffing nerve. After
asking Plo about where Obi-Wan he headed for the sparring rooms and
were about to enter when he heard Skywalker.
“And you were the one who told me
not to get attached. Its so obvious that you and that bounty hunter
“Anakin.” Obi-Wan said sternly and
Jango stopped, hand resting on the door as he listened. “I told you
not to get attached yes, I never told you not to love. There is a
difference between loving someone and attached, at least for Jedi’s.
And this is very unseemly of you, don’t think I haven’t noticed your
behavior young man.”
There was a sulky silence. “…What’s
the difference? I don’t see a difference.”
Obi-Wan sighed, a deep, drawn from the
stomach sigh. “The difference is that you are allowed to love
padawan mine, but you have to remember that the order comes first.
Because we are more then just one person, we are a sanctioned order
of peacekeepers, oath bound to protect the galaxy.” There was the
shift of cloth and Jango could imagine the redhead resting his hands
on his taller padawan’s shoulders. “And sometimes that sucks
kriffing bantha balls Anakin.”
There was a choked laugh. “Master.”
“Its the truth. We give up many
things as Jedi’s. But we are allowed to love. We love our lineages,
our masters, our padawans and our companions. And sometimes we can
love someone a bit…differently.”
“You mean like Jango.” Skywalker
“Do you blame me for finding a bit of
“I-no-no! that’s not…I…”
“Oh Anakin, just because I find
someone to care for doesn’t mean I care for you any less. You will
always be my first padawan. My first student and dear friend. Never
forget that, I will lord it over you that I taught you how to use the
Force when you have your own padawans.”
“…He really makes you happy?”
“Happier then I have in a long time.
Jango has no responsibilities that would hold him back except for
Boba and I welcome Boba into my life too. Perhaps one day I will have
to choose between him and the Order but…until that day…I’m
content to have him in my life.”
“…I guess I can accept him
around…if he makes you happy.”
Jango backed away slowly, staring at
the door before smiling a bit.
“Kriffing soft Jedi…” He chuckled
quietly to himself, the smile lingering softly on his own lips.
imagine in which y.n has a friends with benefits with juice(he is secretly in love with u) one you hear him telling chibs how he feels. but you dont really want to be with him.you have an intensive fight, telling you that he loves you and you telling him that you are confused. you start avoiding him till one night when he comes to your house and making love.you realize you love him*smut, fluffy*
Warning’ Poorly written smut.
I have absolutely no clue how to write smut without it being super awkward and super chopped up.So the smut is going to be at a minimum. Enjoy and let me apologize in advance for the horrible writing.
Laying back on the rather squeaky bed in Juice’s dorm room, you panted softly, a soft giggle leaving your lips as you watched Juice struggle to pull his pants on as he listened to his brothers, well more specifically Tig, imitate your moans on the other side of the door his shit eating laugh breaking in the middle of his teasing. Looking at you with an apologetic look, Juice shook his head. “I’m sorry darling, I’ll be back later.” He said, leaning over the bed, his lips capturing yours in a soft kiss before opening the door and running after Tig.
The two of you had been Friends With Benefits for as long as you could remember. At first the idea felt foreign to you, the idea of fucking your best friend, it felt dirty. Best friends weren’t suppose to feel this way toward each other were they? Then Juice took you on a ride you wold never forget. Lord knows your aching legs would never forget.
Getting dressed, you took a deep breath as you walked out of the room and into the ever busy club house, the teasing going on between the brothers causing you to giggle. This was the only place you know of that could have this type of atmosphere, one of loud laughter and happiness, then do a complete 180 turn and be full of anger and pissed off semi-drunk men. “Ok, is there anything in this place that doesn’t have alcohol in it?” You questioned, frowning as you looked through seemingly endless row of bottles, each and everyone of them having something inside that would knock you on your ass for days. “I think they’re should be milk in the kitchen.. Gemma keeps it there so when the grandkiddys come by they’ll have something to drink other than water.” Opie said, chuckling as he watched you leap toward the kitchen. Your happy giggles causing his grin to grow.
“I don’t know how to tell her Chibby.. I never can find the right moment.”Juice spoke softly as he looked to the older man for help. He had been trying to tell you how much his feelings had changed toward you the last few weeks, but he couldn’t ever do it. Chibs shook his head and took a deep breath. “Are you sure you want to tell her Juicey boy? It may change everything.” He warned, looking at the much younger boy before his eyes looked away from the boy and toward you, your face full of confusion. “You what?” You asked, watching as Juice tuned around, his mouth trying to form the right words. “Your feelings toward me weren’t suppose
o change Juice! We’re suppose to fuck then go on with our lives, no strings attached!” You snapped, finding yourself growing angry with the boy.
Staring at you with a wide mouth, Juice shook his head. “Jesus y/n! Why the hell are you snapping at me for! I figured you would want something different seeing how you want me to fuck you in different ways each time we go at it!” He snapped back, the fire igniting in his eyes. He had expected you to act differently than normal, but this, this is not what he was expecting. “You know what y/n, I’m not going to stand here and deal with this shit.” He snapped once more before storming out, leaving you stand there with a bewildered look on your face.
It had been a week since you and Juice’s “fight” that held left everyone confused. Including yourself. Had you not been enough just as friends? Had you pushed him the wrong way and made him think you were honestly in love with him? Because your feelings for him had stayed the exact same, you were strictly friends. You had no clue what had changed, but until you knew you stayed as far away as Juice and the club as possible.
Pulling in front of your home in the garage tow truck, Juice stared at the front door, his mind going crazy with himself as got out and walked toward the front door, his mind trying to tell him to stop. Opening the front door he quickly walked back toward your bedroom, your moans making him smirk. “Missed me did you?” He asked as he opened the door to find you spread across the bed, your hand in an area only he should be pleasuring. Not bothering to sit up, you continued to rub yourself, a soft sweet moan leaving your lips as you watch Juice began to undress himself, his rather large length hardening at the sight you had created. “What do you want Juice.. Can’t you tell I’m busy.” You asked, yourself growing excited as you watched him remove your hand and replace it with with length, a loud moan leaving your lips as he rocked his hips forward.
“I want you to say it y/n.. Admit it, You fucking love me.” Juice hissed, his hips continually rocking against your own as he looked down at you, the faces you were making causing his smirk to grow. “I’m the only one that can make you feel this good y/n, so why push me away?” He hissed, his hands moving to grip at your hips as his thrusts began to get deeper, along with your moans.
Chewing on you lip harshly, you shook your head. Who was he to think that after a week you were just going to take him back like that? Letting out a moan, you arched your back slightly, your hands roaming his chest as he spoke his words sending fire through your body. “Fine! I fucking love you Juan Otriz!” You moaned, your world soon spinning as Juice continued to rock your world
