I did a few of those online quiz things, about what sort of warrior I am. I got samurai on most of them…. Well okay, where’s the bushido code?
Inspired by the Disney Princess “They aren’t asking for it” post
If you have scars from your horrific cancer and healing factor at war with each other, and wear a red and black suit, and your weapon of choice is puns, sass, and puns, along with sweet ass katanas, you can bet your sweet ass Spider-Man will ask for it.
the hell is this Prince of Persia?
THE STUFF THESE GUYS ARE DOING IN VIDEO GAMES IS NOT POSSIBLE THEY SAID. IT’S NOT VERY REALISTIC THEY SAID. HA!
Assassin’s Creed IRL
I’m pretty sure I dislocated my shoulder watching this.
You wouldn’t be able to do this in PoP or AC, because the first movement isn’t in a linear direction, he hits the wall, bounces off at an angle, and lands on top of the next bar. The games are programmed to some degree of human physics, and this would be too unbelievable. (As opposed to diving from like 20 stories up, into a cart of hay, which is totally completely doable)
Hello there, dear writerly friends!
Over the last year I’ve gotten hundreds (
if not thousands :0) of writers sending me their story-ideas and asking me if they’re ‘good.’ Now, instead of continuously copy-pasting the same response, or worse ignoring them, I decided to format my thoughts into a nice-and-simple test c;
Now, since I have a feeling some of you still have questions, let me post here my answers to the responses I’ve gotten from this test:
Is this seriously the test?
Yes. Just 3 questions. Not more. Not less.
You’re saying that if I find the story-idea ‘fun’ to write, then I’m good to go?
Even though you know nothing about my story-idea?
Nope. I don’t care what your story is actually about. All I care about is that you have fun. Seriously. If you have fun writing it, the reader will be able to tell. It’s easier to be passionate about something you enjoy. On the flip-side, have you ever read anything that was written by someone who clearly was not having ANY fun? Ask your English teacher if they can tell when someone actually enjoyed writing an essay. You may be able to half-ass a cake and make something edible, but you can’t half-ass a book and expect people to like it.
Even though I think this story idea is similar to that of another book?
Jorge Luis Borges said that there are only 4 types of stories: a love story between two people, a love story between three people, the struggle for power, and the journey. The truth is that, really, the idea for the story does not matter. It’s not what you say, but how you it say that matters. And, I don’t know about you, but I think it’s easier to get your voice across when you’re actually enjoying the process of writing c;
How do I make my story-idea more ‘fun’?
Be honest with yourself. Write about what excites you. You don’t have to write about anything you don’t care about, or meet some sort of imaginary guidelines. Writing is art. Write about anything you want. Additionally, you may want to checkout my (Strange) Guide to Planning Your Novel, it’s built on this entire philosophy.
I hope this helps! I have gotten this question so many times, I thought it would be best to just put my answer out there for all of you c;

I was just watching ABC News and they were talking about “Binge” watching TV Shows on Netflix and they explained
"Binge watching is defined as watching at least 3 episodes in one day."
Awww, how cute
I’ve finished entire seasons in a day…
*tumblr collectively laughs*
I watched 6 episodes of a tv show the other day, and that was a casual viewing session
BLESS THESE TAGS.
The thing I like about Joss is that he doesn’t objectify women, in that he writes them as actual women - you know, real humans with real personalities. Some are tough, but they also like to be girls (Buffy). Some are deadly, but they can also be tender (Zoe). Some are frail, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be strong (Willow). But at the same time, he recognizes that, fuck it, women are beautiful and they have beautiful bodies and as long as everything is also practical, why can’t there be eyecandy?
And he does the same thing with men.
Joss Whedon is excellence personified
