How do I ... words?

Seriously, someone let me know. It's getting to be a problem.

Pick a character I’ve written and I will explain the top ~three to five ideas/concepts/etc I keep in mind while writing that character that I believe are essential to accurately depicting them.

OH I LIKE

THIS LEAVE ME SOME OF THESE TO DO

I’m waiting for Kyle to come fetch Nick so sure I’ll do some of these if people want.

This is stupid because no one ever sends me asks, and there’s not a lot of characters for anyone to ask about, but there are some, and this sounds like fun, and maybe someone will surprise me.

alright you guys have posted some pretty bad jokes on here but not one comes close to this doozy

brace yourselves

so there’s a far-off place that consists of a perfectly triangular lake surrounded by land, with three kingdoms on the three sides of the lake. the first kingdom is rich and powerful, filled with wealthy, prosperous people. the second kingdom is more humble, but has its fair share of wealth and power, too. the third kingdom is struggling and poor, and barely has an army.

the kingdoms eventually go to war over control of the lake, as it’s a valuable resource to have. the first kingdom sends 100 of their finest knights, clad in the best armor and each with their own personal squire. the second kingdom sends 50 of their knights, with fine leather armor and a few dozen squires of their own. the third kingdom sends their one and only knight, an elderly warrior who has long since passed his prime, with his own personal squire.

the night before the big battle, the knights in the first kingdom drink and make merry, partying into the late hours of the night. the knights in the second kingdom aren’t as well off, but have their own supply of grog and also drink late into the night.

in the third camp, the faithful squire gets a rope and slings it over the branch of a tall tree, making a noose, and hangs a pot from it. he fills the pot with stew and has a humble dinner with the old knight.

the next morning, the knights in the first two kingdoms are hung over and unable to fight, while the knight in the third kingdom is old and weary, unable to get up. in place of the knights, the squires from all three kingdoms go and fight. the battle lasts long into the night, but by the time the dust settled, only one squire was left standing - the squire from the third kingdom.

and it just goes to show you that the squire of the high pot and noose is equal to the sum of the squires of the other two sides

This is the best thing I’ve ever read

I am so angry

I just got two random follows in as many days from people I don’t even know. First off, thanks. Second, why did you follow me!? I must know so I can continue to do the thing! Also, feel free to share the answer to number two with all your friends. My follower count isn’t as minuscule as it was weeks ago, but it’s still pretty sad. And lastly, PLEASE feel free to send me asks and writing prompts and whatever else you want. They can be anon. I don’t care. Some form of communication is all I’m asking for. Okay, that’s it. You’re all awesome! Bye! :D

As a professional internet, it’s my job to search the web for quality, intellectually stimulating content. Like this.

The heavens parted, and delivered unto us a scion of hope, a glimmer of immortality. This song.

Its been a few hours since I posted this and I’m pretty sure I’ve gone back to listen to it about twelve times now and each time it still makes me almost develop a hernia from laughing so much.

You guys. This is important.

hey guys!! so, this is the first giveaway i’ve ever done and i’m really excited!
after seeing the reviews on steam for Gone Home during the summer sale (i honestly don’t think i read a single review that wasn’t positive before i played it myself, that’s…why i bought it!), i was really depressed and disappointed that this lovely little game was being trashed, when i felt that it was something beautiful, original, and would be deeply appreciated by the right audiences. so, i grabbed 5 copies to give away to you guys here on tumblr, because i think there’s a lot of people who would really enjoy it and i’d like to get them playing it! even if you’re just curious, go for it (& let me know what you think!) 
some quick questions! 

flux, what the hell is Gone Home

from wiki - On June 7, 1995, Kaitlin Greenbriar returns home―a mansion in Arbor Hill, Oregon willed to Kaitlin's father by his uncle, Oscar Masan―not long after midnight on a stormy night after a yearlong trip abroad. She spots a note on the door from her sister, Samantha, telling her to not go looking for answers as to where she is. As she enters the house Kaitlin realizes nobody is home, not even her parents, so she investigates the house to find out where they all are. Players guide Kaitlin through this process, learning some things known to Kaitlin along with new facts about her family and their experiences over the past year.
aka it’s an first person perspective exploration game about unraveling the story of non-sexualized queer girls in the 90’s, among a bunch of other stories about your family. it’s a story that will stay with me for years, and i don’t want to spoil too much but it really is excellent and touching.

but i’m not a gamer i won’t like —

half or more of the criticism i’ve seen this game get is that it’s not “a real game” (whatever the fuck that means…and trust me, i could start getting political about how this one particular narrative gets so much hate but that’s for a different post) so i really ENCOURAGE people who aren’t gamers to give this a shot! you walk around and look at things, you don’t need good reflexes, there’s no time limits, it’s like portal without the puzzle part.

my computer is really crappy though :(

LOL i hear you - i played it on a litle tiny worn-out netbook that was SO not made to run video games!! sure, it really struggled to run it, and it was a little jammed up/laggy in places, but since you take your time with this game anyway, i didn’t mind at all! i think you should be good, this isn’t that intensive of a game for your computer to run. should be ok!

i already own it!

SWEET. if you wanna reblog it to let your followers see, that’s fine, just pop me a note in my inbox or your tags to lemme know you’re not entering, or if you want me to send it to a friend, that’s fine too, lemme know when you win! ♥
i’m going to use a random number generator thing to do the giveaway with, and the copies are on steam so you need steam, i would think, lol.
one reblog & one like count as entries…
(but you’ll only get counted entering once for each, twice total)
and if you write a comment about why you’d like to play it (it can seriously be a short sentence, or whatever you feel like writing)
…that’s certainly going to improve your chances! 
YOU DON’T HAVE TO FOLLOW ME TO WIN. but i have reserved 2 copies for my CURRENT followers. don’t follow me just for the contest, because that sucks for everyone involved, lol. the other 3 are fair game (teehee) for everyone! so go for it! contest ends on the 15th! :)


I already have the game and love it. Just reblogging to let more people know about the awesomeness of this game. It falls into that category of one of those games I think anyone who’s willing to hold the controller should play.

For someone who sometimes has trouble articulating thoughts into words, the words, when they’re there, are incredible and moving.

My friend, Meghan.

She was talking about a thing I wrote a while ago. It’s a conversation I find myself returning to whenever I’m having trouble, with writing, with life, whatever. Probably the nicest thing anyone’s ever said to me.
