Realizing how damn alone I am in my fandom on the NaNo forums

Like legit, even the people in the same series haven’t played the game I’m writing about. This is beyond weird for me ._.

Important things to consider with your OCs:

thesapphirerose:

  • How they would react upon accidentally walking into a glass door
  • Their reaction to having their name spelt wrong on a Starbucks drink
  • What kind of vines they would make
  • Their reaction to your favourite character
  • How they would play The Sims
  • What their finishing move would be

excessive exposure to this sound | an indie ost playlist about ambiance of this beloved genre. from robbing a discotheque to gunning down a night club. from saving bandage girlfriends to saving the world with sword boyfriends. from escaping white puzzle rooms to escaping a vibrant pixel worlds. from talking swords to talking rocks. from your every move narrated by wit and class to your every move dictated by proper dance moves. because you don’t need to be triple-a to be epic.

if you dont have me on facebook you are probably not missing out on any posts but the comment section is important too lmao

I went to the Renaissance faire dressed as a warrior.  I had a real sword with me, too.  I was standing (in character) next to a sword-fighting ring, where kids of all ages got the chance to pick up a sword and challenge the champion.  Some woman walks by, with her little girl.  The girl starts walking towards the ring, saying she wants to fight.  But the mom pulled her away hella sharply, and was like, “That’s for boys.”  You don’t want to be a BOY, do you?”    And the girl looked around and saw me.  I think she thought I was a boy; I had my hair in a ponytail, and was wearing a hood.  So she comes up to me and asks me, “Do you think girls can be fighters, too?”  And her mom looks like she’s silently gloating.  Like she thinks I’m going to say no.  So I take off my hood, untie my hair so that it flows freely, and kneel before her.  And I’m like, “Milady, anyone can be a fighter.”  I swear, the look on that mother’s face made my day.

This post was good but then it got better

Only in the NaNo forums will you find someone saying they don’t believe the “relationship” portrayed in 50 Shades of Grey was abusive.

You guys are making the fanfiction subforum look normal. Stop that.

But in reading great literature I become a thousand men and yet remain myself. —C.S. Lewis (via writingquotes)
That said, as well as characters, I also think it’s important for publishers to look at the diversity of their authors. For one thing, I think children of all and any background should be able to aspire to do what I do and be able to see authors they recognise as a part of their own community. If that little Congolese boy thinks stories are about white people, how likely is he to become a storyteller? What I love about writing is that it’s a meritocracy one that’s, in theory, open to all walks of life. Young, old, gay, straight, black, white, rich or poor. Why is it then that we seem to have so many debuts coming from very pretty, white, posh seventeen-year-old girls? —James Dawson, We Must Overcome Our Fears (via elloellenoh)

If you’ve ever doubted yourself, walk deep into any forest. Notice how the trees still stand even though they are given no recognition. Walk along any stream. The water still flows, though no one stops to praise it. Watch the stars late at night; they shine without acknowledgment. Humans are just the same. We are made out of the same elements as these beautiful wonders. Always remember your beauty and self worth.
