“Read, read, read. Read everything — trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it. Then write. If it’s good, you’ll find out. If it’s not, throw it out of the window.”—William Faulkner (via thatlitsite)e (via riimbaud)
Now that we've seen them together and in action a lot in the last few chapters, what do you think about Levi's and Hange's relationship?
Well, I’m a levihan shipper, if that tells you anything.
Ah, I think I’ve talked about them before, though. How they’re a really interesting duo. They’re complete opposites, but get along amazingly well— only bickering occasionally, and even that seems to be on a joking level.
I also think the Middle School comics have a few good examples of their relationship, because even if it’s set in another universe, Isayama still writes it. Hange and Levi are acting as Isayama thinks they would in it- their relationship in it is canon. And I don’t know if you guys have ever bothered reading any of it, but Levi looks out for her a lot. He gives her money for food when she wastes her entire budget on animal food for her biology club, and he even cooks for her to make sure she eats at all.
Even though they’re polar opposites, they look out for each other and work together extremely well. They even give each other pep talks(Hange comforting him when Levi became upset at the idea he may have been killing humans, Levi comforting her when she was so scared after Nick’s death, etc). So I think their relationship is positively adorable. Even on a platonic level.
Hi! I just want to say I really love your Empty Boots AU. I read some time ago, way before I made my tumblr and kinda forgot the title... orz But! I'm really happy you posted the Lost Sock minisode so I was able to find it and re-read it again. I'm looking forward to your next chapter :3
Hello! Thank you for reading and putting in the effort to find EB again! It’s great to hear readers loving what I love to write about! xD Also, welcome to Tumblr!
In historical fiction it is important to be accurate and the only way to do so is to research the era. What is highly recommended by many writers is to write your story first. While writing your story, mark the parts that you’re not sure are correct and then do the…
lmao people mock fanfiction but when u think about it some people manage to create novel-length stories that are extremely well written without getting paid and they do it on top of school and work and everything else in their lives just because they love to write and they love the original story or the people they write about like im pretty sure that’s more productive than being the person who is just sat there laughing at it all
I’m not going to make resolutions, I’m making changes. This year will be awesome and so full of win! There may be ruts and sharp turns, but in the long run it will be worth while. Unlike the past years, I’m enthusiastic about this year! Happy New Year!
My creative writing professor told me to stop
writing about love. I asked him why and he said,
“Because you have turned it over and over in your hands,
felt every angle, every fault, every inch,
every bruise. You have ruined it for yourself.”
I spent the next 3 weeks writing about science
and space. Stars exploding.
Getting sucked into a black hole.
How much I wished I could sleep inside of that nothingness
without being annihilated. What an exploding star
would taste like. If it would make our stomachs glow
like fireflies, or tingle and shake like pop rocks
under our tongue.
My creative writing professor told me that those poems
weren’t what he was looking for.
He tells me to stop writing about outer space.
Stop writing about science.
Again, I ask him why. Again, he says,
“You have ruined it for yourself.”
I spend the next three weeks writing about my mother,
how we are told we can’t make homes inside
of other human beings, but the foreclosure sign
on my mother’s empty womb tells me that women
who give birth know a different,
more painful truth.
My creative writing professor tells me I am both talented
and hopeless, that everything I write is both visceral and empty,
a walking circus with no animals inside
but a beautiful trapeze artist with a broken hip
selling popcorn in the entrance-way.
He tells me to stop writing about my mother. I don’t ask why.
I pick up my books and my notepad
and I leave his office with my war stories
tucked under my tongue like an exploding star,
like the taste of the last person I ever loved,
like my mother’s baby thermometer, and I do not look back.
We are all writing about our mothers, our lovers,
the empty space that we will never be able to breathe in.
We are all carrying stones in our pockets
and tossing them back and forth in our hands,
trying to explain the heaviness
and we will never stop writing about love,
about black holes, about how quiet it must have been
inside the chaos of my mother’s belly,
inside the chaos of his arms,
inside the chaos of the spaces in every poem
I have ever written.
None of this is ruined.
Do not listen to them when they tell you that it is.
In my experience, RPers and Writers alike enjoy one thing: Making characters suffer. This little guide is supposed to help you with keeping injuries and the First Aid - in case you want to patch your character back together - realistic. I am no medical professional, but I dare say I picked up a thing or two during my First Aider training ;)
Under read more for length! Also, trigger warnings for blood, I suppose?
