Halfborn leaned toward me. “There’s no shame in being attracted, Magnus.” 

I choked on a piece of feast beast. “What? No, I wasn’t—”

“Staring?” Halfborn grinned.

As some of you may know I’ve been studying Professional and Creative Writing for three years now, and I’m heading into a fourth year of study for Honours, and one thing that has really stuck out for me over the past few years is how much pressure people put on you to write a story with some kind of important meaning.

This needs to stop.

There’s nothing wrong with writing a story with purpose and meaning, but when you limit yourself to writing a story around those morals, then you restrict what you can write.

Write what you want to write. 

Write stories for fun. 

Write stories with no moral messages and see what meaning other people read into it.

Write a story by focusing on the characters, the plot, the narrative, whatever; just write the story you want to tell, becasue if you limit yourself to writing around that moral message then you lose the possibility to open your text up and create depth to it by having multiple meanings and moral messages, contradictions and ideologies that your readers will hold onto and literature students will gush over.

Write what you want to write.

My entire life has been marked by two things. First one is change. From when I was a kid, to when I was an adult… things were always changing. But no matter how different things became or what new challenges that I had to face, I always had the other thing that my life was marked by. And that’s you. You’ve always been there. As… a friend, as a partner, as the love of my life. You’re my home, Iris. And that’s one thing that will never change.

  • Them: Happy Christmas Eve!
  • Me: December 24th. 9 PM. Eastern Standard Time. From here on in I shoot without a script. See if anything comes of it, instead of my old shit. First shot, Roger. Tuning the Fender guitar he hasn't played in a year. This won't tune. So we hear. He's just coming back from half a year of withdrawal. Are you talking to me? Not at all! Are you ready? Hold that focus, steady. Tell the folks at home, what you're doing Roger. I'm writing one great song. The phone rings. SAVED! We screen. Zoom in on the answering machine. SPEAK! <BEEEEEEEEP>

HAPPY 10TH ANNIVERSARY TEAM FORTRESS 2! 

I could not ever thank this game enough for the wonderful experience of my past few years. I’ve never dove so far into a game or fan community as I have for TF2, by far my favorite game. It means the absolute world to me, and I could not ask for a better set of murder dads ❤

Thank you Valve, for them.

So apparently people still think Hunk is muscular or are afraid to draw his chubs…. so i made this. Sorry it’s super messy!!!

  •  I chose shiro and Zethrid to compare to Hunk since both of them are muscular
  • Animation/ cartoons are all about exaggerations and emphasis on character designs/ body types. (which is why zethrid and Shiro have closer built than w/ hunk)
  • If Hunk was muscular there wouldn’t be so many fat/food jokes. Plain and simple.
  • Can’t draw fat people so draw him skinny?? It takes practice!! i still can’t draw chubby people but i’m out here practicing and so can you
  • there’s nothing wrong w/ being fat. stop trying to argue that he’s muscular

That’s it for this TED Talk thank you for listening now go draw Hunk in all of his chubby glory!!
