If you write something based on this, let me know. I’d love to read it!

I’m whiter than white and my hair holds zero curls.

But I’m writing a character of mixed race. One of her grandparents is Japanese-American, two are African-American, and one is Anglo-American. She’s got kinky curls like so

Have you ever had an idea for a story that you think is absolutely perfect and you spend a lot of time working out plot holes and what not, then it comes time to write the actual story, and you're scared because you don't want to mess it up? How do you get to not be scared?

Oh yeah, all the time. Let me put that in bold italics again: all the time.
I think everyone does it.

It’s a matter of imagination hyping up a story because you’re seeing the end result rather than the work, lame drafts, occasional self-loathing, and time consuming editing that has to be put into it.

The way not to be scared is to remember that a story isn’t going to start out good at all, but that you have all the time in the world to make it good. Eventually your imagination becomes the reality.

do you ever play cards against humanity and there’s that moment where the perfect card for the hand is in your hand and you just go “my time has come” and lay it down with such grace

and then you don’t get the point

It looks like Tom is about to fucking cry.


If he was touched, it’s kinda understandable.
I mean, think about it. He is cast as a villain. Sure, it’s a fun role (especially since it’s such a multifaceted, complicated character). He might make a name for himself in the world if you’re lucky, but really, what other expectations did he have?
The film’s protagonist is attractive (in the very masculine, classic sense), strong—the person everyone will root for.
I can believe it if Tom never thought that his character—the bad guy—would become not only the most popular character in the Thor series, but possibly one of the most popular characters in the entire MCU. (Honestly, I think only RDJ’s Tony Stark might have him beat.)
And it just hit him, in this moment, how much people love the work he’s done. It’s overwhelming. I’m happy for him.

friend-zoning guys is horrible. it is disgusting. funzone them instead. send them to a small childs park so they can cry with the other babies when they dont get what they want.

one of my favorite FOB encounter stories is the one where this girl was eating at a restaurant and she was wearing a FOB shirt and she felt someone looking at her so she looked out the glass window she was sitting by and Pete Wentz was on the other side of the glass just staring at her and grinning.
