1. nekou-nekori said: My main character, female, is a badass, reckless woman. I don't want her to be a typical hero, I want her to be kind of anti hero, she does bad things, you know, but at the same time I want her to be likeable, I want readers to root for her a bit, despite the fact she's not good (like Walter White from Breaking Bad?). How can I do that with not turning her into a hero?


    You’re in luck! Both anti-heroes and unsympathetic but likeable characters aren’t that uncommon in fiction. Things you need to keep in mind:

    • Your character is going to do bad things. Don’t let these things get a pass or come off as good just because your character is the main character.
    • Your character is going to do good things too. Giving your character some ‘save the cat’ moments to show that they’re still a hero, even if they’re kind of a bad person, is essential. (And if you want them to cross the line, having them do the opposite of something food they did later is a good way to show that.)
    • Your character is going to do things for complicated reasons. A lot of flat anti-heroes are always confident in everything they do, but a real character is going to feel at least conflicted about making tough or morally wrong decisions. If they no longer feel conflicted or at least acknowledge that it’s not the right thing to do, they’re less a hero and more a villain.

    Some fun with President Obama

    I saw this suit on seven monitors at the station and was angered. Suits is like the one thing he never disappoints with. That and the snark.

    What if Daryl Dixon is gay?

    Then he likes dudes and literally everything else is the same.


    And I get to watch the Bethyl and Caryl fandom members I don’t like self destruct. :)

    The first picture is me and my twinbrother when we were 3 years old. The second picture is me on my brother’s funeral. He was 18 years old and killed himself. I don’t care if this ruins your blog. I want you to reblog this and make a statement.

    The first picture is worldfamous. Even Kendall Jenner posted it on her instagram account.We were on the news because no one knew that the picture was 15 years old. But people need to realize that life isn’t as pretty as the picture tells us. Life is cruel. Just like our society. And I’ve lost my best friend because of it. Teenagers are suppose to have fun, instead of thinking about killing themselves. 

    I hope this will get to Kendall Jenner and she’ll defend my statement. Because no one will probably listen to me…

    my chinese students really love english profanity because they dont get in trouble for it

    i try to just ignore it so they don’t get a reaction and keep using it

    but today during a creative writing exercise, a character was arguing with a dragon, and the kids needed to decide what the character would yell

    this one kid raises his hand and calmly submits his suggestion of “f*ck you, you foolish dragon motherf*cker”

    i dont know its just 

    its difficult not to react to that

    As an American I can confirm this is the proper way to argue with a dragon.
