The other day i was playing botw and It started to rain, and i was like “what if link gets sick in the middle of nowhere alone. Who takes care of this boy during his lonely journey?” 😔
TOS: Here are some proper ranks. It’s based on the Navy! It’s all very important, but also everyone disobeys an actual order at every turn so it’s kind of not.
TNG: We’re more professional, so rank matters and orders count for something. On the other hand, this kid is cool and sometimes the Irish One needs to be a different rank for some reason. Oh well, Make It So!
DS9: We have given up trying to explain it. We’ll just give every character their own title, and hope nobody cares what authority they actually have to tell anyone else what to do.
Voyager: Shut up Fives, a Ten is speaking. Janeway, can I talk to you one Ten to Another? / I’m an Eleven, Chakotay, but continue
i want people to feel about my writing the way roger ebert feels about the mummy
“There is hardly a thing I can say in its favor, except that I was cheered by nearly every minute of it. I cannot argue for the script, the direction, the acting or even the mummy, but I can say that I was not bored and sometimes I was unreasonably pleased.”
I need a leverage ot3 soulmate au of the version where the first words you hear your soulmate say are written on you somewhere, because these three first meet with Hardison pretending to have an allergic reaction and Parker handing Eliot a massive knife to cut his airway open to fix this and I forget the exact first words they say but I know they’d be absolutely wild to hear in that moment
excuse u just murder me next time. i’m D Y I N G over this
cause like, Rashomon Job comes around and these fuckn nerds are each telling their versions of the story while internally grinding themselves to dust because they each KNOW they met their soulmate that night and they let them get away
because the job, the job was always the most important thing and it was stupid so stupid and if only they’d known then what family, real family, isand it’s been five years and they don’t even know their soulmate’s name and they didn’t look at their soulmate’s face they didn’t want to know didn’t want to risk itand now there’s no chance of tracking them down cause even Hardison needs a crumb to go off of and…
and then Nate puts everything together about how ‘hey turns out we were all there that night, isn’t that hilarious?’
and Hardison looks at Eliot and Eliot looks at Parker and Parker looks at them both and everything
their whole lives and all the choices they made and all the ones they didn’tjust … makes sense now.
There’s no feeling more frustrating in the world, then finishing a fic, and just wanting more.
You want a fic that tics the EXACT boxes that the fic you just finished ticked.
You keep looking, but you just can’t find it.
And you realise that what you really want, is to reread the fic for the first time again.
But you can’t.
omg a musical song about COMPLAINING ABOUT WRITING
My whole life I have been waiting for this. MY WHOLE LIFE.
OH MY WORD
I REBLOG THIS EVERY SINGLE TIME IT COMES ON MY DASH AN I HAVE LOVED IT EVERY TIME
…we also know that this actor and director’s entire direction for this was ‘CHANNEL TIM CURRY’
This is the BEST thing I have ever seen
*stifles a sob* oh my god. This spoke to me in a way nothing else has.
*stifles a sob* oh my god. This spoke to me in a way nothing else has.
@appears I fucking love your writing. ♥️

I feel like the problem ppl have when constructing redemption arcs is people make ‘the character realizes what they’ve done is wrong’ the end step instead of like…one of the earliest ones. a satisfying redemption arc doesn’t resolve when the character first feels sorry, it resolves when a character has really journeyed towards atonement and made enough change in themselves to achieve some kind of symbolic victory over who they used to be
1/10 Doesn’t she realize her job is to snark off on the captain, publicly? She actually does her real job all the time and seems pretty professional. I’m giving her a one because she has had a couple of moments but seriously girl, you need to up your game here.
3/10 The man has got wit enough to fully take on his role as ship’s snarker, but tends to reserve it all for his space boo. What’s more, whenever he’s not kissing his patients in sickbay, he actually comes across as professional and caring. What a waste of good snark potential. In all fairness, it’s kinda hard to determine who’s the captain at any given moment on this ship.
5/10 Dr. Pulaski is definitely salty enough to be the queen of this list, if only she wouldn’t insist on doing her job all the fucking time. Come on, Katherine, a little less competence and you could be ruling this list!
7/10 Does Julian even know where the infirmary is? He’s constantly blowing off his duties to gossip about his lizard boyfriend, play games with O’Brien, and generally fuck about around the station. Sadly Julian doesn’t have an ounce of salt in him and instead mainly just seems a bit whiny, nosy, and distracted. Still, we see some bitterness developing by the end of the series. Between that and his complete inability to stay in his proper work environment, we’ve given him a high position on this list.
Leonard “Bones” McCoy
11/10 What can I say? The only time we’ve seen this shithead at his actual job is when Kirk and/or Spock is there and I assume that’s just to snark at them. McCoy knows his real place in life: draped across the furniture making quips at the crew while they attempt to actually do their job. McCoy, hat’s off to you. You show us what it truly means to be a Starfleet doctor.
Ok but where is EMH?? Because we all know hes an 11 if not 12 out of 10
You are right. I’ve left out an important doctor on this list. However I disagree. While he has the snarky wit, he does his actual job too much to rate that high.
8/10 Much like Pulaski, the Doctor has a competency problem. He does his job far too much to reach Bones status on our list, but unlike Pulaski, at least he shrugs off his his duties somewhat regularly enough to get a few points more than her. Has no problem snarking at anyone around him regardless of the situation. Whatta
You’ve got everything you need. A good set of well-developed NPCs will help flesh out the world, but a committed trio can definitely make for a good group of adventurers.
IT’S INCREDIBLY HELPFUL AND CAN FOR INSTANCE GENERATE TOPICS AND FIRST LINES, CONTAINS LOADS OF EXERCISES AND YOU CAN FIND PLENTY OF WRITING TIPS.
BLESS YOU I LOVE YOU OH MY GODS I’VE NEEDED THIS
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?
This is a really cool site…
What an awesome way to get started or recharge or play around or experiment or…OK it’s good for all the writing things :D
Ok. This is cool af!
One of the coolest writing prompt ideas I’ve ever seen.
Looks like an excellent springboard for short stories, too.
The Avengers getting thrown forward in time for some reason and it turns out that they’ve gone down in history as legends but, somewhat like the Greek Gods, all the information and facts about them is warped almost beyond recognition and they spend the entire time in the future just being offended by how incorrect everything is
Steve: Okay so there is NO WAY they seriously think that the serum turned me into a FISH for seven hundreds years so I could survive under the fucking ice. And why the FUCK are they spelling my name as ‘Stiphin’ ??????
Tony: Well according to this history book I fucked my way through the entire population of New York and was the father of every second-generation superhero. Does that make me Zeus?
Thor, squinting at the drawings: Why do I look like Rapunzel
History Professor: And, one of the most powerful heroes of all, called himself king of the insects. With eight arms & six eyes and the chosen name of Lord Peterson, this ruler once set an army of poisonous spiders upon his mortal enemy after finding out that she had killed his family and stolen the woman he loved. It is thought that the lands were infested with spiders for years after, as a warning to anyone who attempted to challenge him
Peter, 15 years old, remembering how he can’t even pick up a spider without screaming: I did what now
This is the kind of quality content I come here for.
It’d be even funnier if Clint’s mythology is ridiculously accurate and he’s still just a regular man fighting amongst Gods.
the worst kind of narrative a lot of sherlock holmes adaptations fall into is when a holmes provides a bare minimum apology/exclamation of friendship to watson and this tiny action is always framed like some amazing growth of character while the watson is disproportionately grateful to accept these crumbs of appreciation. it’s from an early episode but this is one of the top scenes in elementary because it rejects that unhealthy dynamic. this watson had the agency to tell holmes that this kind of pathetic gesture was simply not enough this time (or any time), and it opened the the door to far more complex character/relationship development
okay yeah sure i’ll admit it was cool seeing steve weild mjolnir but the utter gaul of that entire scene to imply that thor with mjolnir and stormbreaker and the full powers of the god of thunder at his disposal wouldn’t be able to completely obliterate pre-infinity gauntlet thanos with a single glance is a level of disrespect i can hardly tolerate
You…. have a point.
I just don’t understand why Thor didn’t go all “God of Thunder” on Thanos on the ship from Asgard.
Like, it is literally a few hours since Ragnarok ended. He is at the peak of his power. And for some reason he doesn’t just fucking OBLITERATE Thanos’ ship.
i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again: the russos had to open infinity war with thanos having already beaten the asguardians because there is no way to realistically show him and his generals defeating thor at the height of his powers, loki with the tesserect, valkyrie, the hulk, heimdall, an entire crew of battle hardened alien gladiators, and the survivors of a superhuman warrior race
Infinity War and Endgame both suffer from variable power syndrome. By which I mean they vary the power level of the characters in order to make their plot work. It wasn’t just Thor, although your point is well made and utterly correct.
The most obvious examples I saw were comparisons between Infinity War and Endgame.
In Infinity War our heroes were separated, stuck in small groups, isolated from each other and yet each small group, individually, came within a hair’s breadth of defeating Thanos. And that was Thanos WITH infinity Stones.
On Titan The plucky band of heroes had a plan that almost worked. If Peter hadn’t reacted emotionally in that moment, it was entirely possible that they could have defeated Thanos then.
Even after that moment Tony Stark took Thanos on one-to-one and held his own for a pretty long time.
On earth Steve managed to fight him face to face too, one-on-one, and again, was not immediately wiped out.
Then we get to Wanda.
Wanda managed to:
Destroy an infinity stone with one hand while holding off Thanos with all of the other infinity stones with the other hand. ALL while having an emotional crisis on a massive scale.
Then, of course, Thor comes in and doesn’t go for the head. if he’d aimed just a bit higher…
Then cut forward to Endgame, where we have all our heroes reunited, with new heroes, like Captain Marvel. They were together. Most of the main ones have literally faced Thanos one-on-one with infinity stones and not just survived but made him work for it. And Wanda and Thor were messed up purely because of timing/strategy.
And Thanos comes from the past, pre-infinity stones, with none of the experience or knowledge of fighting the Avengers that the Avengers have about fighting him. Sure he’s got an army, but so do they. And yet… because plot dictates it must for drama, they somehow manage to be less effective at fighting him together than they all were individually.
You’re right, Thor should have wiped the floor with Thanos. Loki should have too. But so should Wanda. Steve, five years on, with time to have analysed Thanos’s strategies and strengths, should have been a bigger threat. Tony, with another 5 years of technology behind him and all the data he got from fighting the guy last time? should have been predicting every move he made. Carol? She only fought the guy once, no infinity stones, but she’s been powering up and fighting as Captain Marvel since the 90s, she’s acknowledged by Word of God to be the most powerful Avenger. If Wanda could take on all the infinity stones at once, Carol shouldn’t even have cared.
Basically that last battle was stupid and made no sense and Thanos should have been dead before he even got the infinity gauntlet.
But it was dramatic and pretty, so we’re supposed to put such petty things as logic and precedent out of our minds and enjoy the mindless pretty violence.

The official trailer for the movie Valhalla, based on Peter Madsen’s legendary comic books is already looking so damn epic. Rolland Møller (”Papillon”) plays Thor, where Dulfi Al-Jabouri (”Darkland”) plays Loki, with Fenar Ahmad (”Darkland”) instructing. Andreas Jessen is also playing Balder, and that’s gotta be a good choice right there.
I’m really excited for this movie, for several reasons:
- Fenar Ahmad is a Danish filmmaker with Iraqi origins, so having him tell a story about Norse mythology is bound to be incredibly interesting and a breath of fresh air in saturated story-telling.
- Dulfi Al-Jabouri is an Iraqi refugee who came to Denmark in 1996, and having him play Loki was something that stirred the pot when it was announced and I’m just sat here so THRILLED that he’s going to be portraying the God of Mischief, like yass, give it to me.
- Roland Møller is like the perfect guy to play Thor and nothing would ever convince me otherwise (like what a prime example of overcoming your past and becoming an iconic character???)
- Røskva, the human young girl is the key to the story, and I’m like! Fantasy! With! Young! Girl! As! Key! GIVE IT TO ME
I can’t wait, y’all. It’s gonna be fab.
