When a reader first picks up a book, they create an instant connection with the author of the story—formed through a required level of trust just so that the two of you can immerse yourselves in the world you have created. The writer and the reader are, at that point, friends or pleasant acquaintances; and at that moment of relationship and immersion into the realm of story, the characters become just as real as the reader/writer relationship. The writer, in this situation, has the benefit of already knowing all the characters, and it is up to him/her to create an introduction for the reader to meet the characters.

On Words vs. IssuesSo, let's talk about dirty words, insults, etc and let's talk about actual words. I get many comments from a variety of different people who tell me that I shouldn't use words like "spaz" or "moron." The reason they usually give is that those words promote ableism. Normally, I ignore these people. But I've decided that it's become a destructive enough force to give comment on. Because, I think that going after words creates many, many issues.On Words vs. Issues2 weeks ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Today we're going to be talking about ableism because it's the topic I have the most familiarity with as opposed to sexism or racism or classism. Or should I say, I have familiarity with ableism issues and issues of disabled rights. Here are the issues on front of disabled rights that I do care about:

Lois was waiting anxiously for his master to arrive home from a party hosted by a business partner of the master. The twenty year old had made the man a batch of the most expensive tea in town to please him and was pouring the cups like he was taught by his father properly as Vladimir Rose came in, cane in hand as the other butlers took off his coat and escorted him to his study.
The old man looked as grumpy as ever, as not one of his wrinkles was worth being called 'laughter lines'. He kept looking at the servants in distaste, since it was evident to see his loathing for such people, but none more so than when he set his cold eyes upon the youngest of his butlers. The disappointment, nothing like his father. Oh there had been much promise and also much failure, a lot of failure.
"What are your standing around for boy?" He snapped as his grip tightened on his cane
“Y-your tea s-sir.” He stutters out, holding out the tray as he bows.

You frown and look down at your dad, who still refuse to let go of your legs.

Choosing the Right Main Character for Your Novel Classic HeroChoosing the Right Main Character for Your Novel2 weeks ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
The classic good guys. Sure, they slip up, learn things, and grow, but overall they try to do what's right and often end up saving the day. Examples of these types of Main Characters (MCs) are Luke Skywalker, Frodo, Captain America, and Elizabeth Bennet. These characters are what most people think of when they hear the word "protagonist." The reader always roots for them and wants to see them come to a good end. There is a danger that these MCs will be goody-two-shoe Mary Sues if they are TOO moral and noble to be relatable but they are popular because they win reader's hearts by pursuing worthy goals and desires that the reader begins to care about.
This character isn't really the main focus but serves as a window into the world. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Watson a prime example of this, with Sherlock Holmes

Shelob and Amy: The Victorious Arachnid It was a warm, July day. The sun glowing bright and basking down through the leaves of the trees. But still, Amy shivered. A lot of that probably had something to do with the soaking wet school uniform that was pasted onto the young woman's sensitive skin. But she had to admit that some of it probably came from the uncertainty of what was ahead of her. Not the path through the forest — she knew it'd lead where it always did. This pleasant wooded path would take her through the prettiest parts of the forest, then out into town.Shelob and Amy: The Victorious Arachnid1 month ago in Short Stories More Like This

PaleanagramologyPALEANAGRAMOLOGY: NEW INSIGHTS INTO THE WORLD OF DINOSAURS BASED ON THE STUDY OF THEIR REARRANGED NAMESPaleanagramology3 weeks ago in Academic Essays More Like This
By Matador Garcon, Curator of Paleontology of the Bill Shut University
ABSTRACT- New studies of the names of dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures provide new insights into the actual behavior and natural history of extinct lifeforms, thus confirming our suspicions that alternative methods are the missing piece in the paleontological puzzle.
In 1842, Sir Richard Owen coined the term “dinosaur”. In 2011, paleontologist Matador Garcon of the Bill Shut University realized, much to his amazement, that the name “Sir Richard Owen”, when the letters were rearranged, spelled “Draws Rhinoceri”. Although “rhinoceri” is not the correct plural for “rhinoceros”, the meaning of the phrase was still obvious. After investigating for thirteen years, Dr. Garcon found that Sir Richard Owen had indeed studied the anatomy of Ind

But the umbrella coming about was not my intention. It was never supposed to be an important detail... Until one of you pointed it out.
I needed Mark to have an umbrella and I decided to make it colorful for the scene. I wish I made it solid colored. Geez! I could've saved so much time.
But anyways; a lot of your interest was piqued by the bumbershoot- and I thought; why not? Let's make it a plot-centric device.

War had begun.
Just mere days ago, a massive superpower country only known as the Empire had launched a preemptive strike on Amestris, wiping out several small towns and massacring their civilians. Almost immediately, the central State Military was brought together and managed to halt the progression of the Imperial Army.
However, that hadn't stopped several teams from the Empire from acting on their own. Without word or warning, they struck hard, capturing towns and crucifying the occupants as a warning, leaving them in the open to be slowly devoured by crows. Disgusted by the inhumane acts, several State Alchemists had taken to evacuating many of the towns too small to defend themselves. In doing so, they ensured that when Empire's main fighting force came in, the State Military wouldn't
Totally Tempting [fWG, Slob, Yuri]Alex laid on her bed, wondering just how she got into this situation in the first place. She knew it started sometime getting out of high school as her first week of college began. Food supplies were massively plentiful as every place on campus that wasn’t a classroom or a computer lab was a snack bar. Pizzas, chicken wings, snacks, all of these and more were at her near-infinite food budget. After all, late night work did need the nourishment to keep the energy going. However, with no parents to keep her in check, she had no real reason to stop her midnight snacks or quick trips to the campus’ 24/7 convenience store for chips and junk food.Totally Tempting [fWG, Slob, Yuri]2 weeks ago in Short Stories More Like This

I was your everything – you told me so
And you’re still the world to me, just so you to know
Time changed so much since the day that we met
But there’s something I don’t want you to forget
I loved you first
I can still feel you – I still see your face
Here in the shadows of this empty space
And your voice still echoes in this haunted place
It wasn’t long enough to last forever
But there’s something I want you to remember
I loved you first
I was enough for you once upon a time
You said I was everything, but that was a lie
And though you said forever then left it behind
I want you to remember every once in a while
I loved you first
Simple and pure
And a piece of my heart
Will always be yours
From the first time we touched
To the last kiss goodbye
I loved you then
As I will ‘til I die
I loved you first
And I will ‘til I die

LumenariLumenari3 weeks ago in Profiles More Like This
Long ago an extremist sect of the mage guild delved into forbidden magic. Thought to have been the cause of the great cataclysm that followed soon after, they were exiled from Lustra, and fled into the wilds with nothing to their name but their magic. In the highlands of the howling mountains they forged an alliance and founded the city of Veritas. Together with the tactical advantage of the mountain pass and the strength of their magic they brought up a fierce and powerful nation.
The forbidden magic brought them great power, but it came at a cost. Neon inscriptions appeared on the skin of the casters and on their offspring thereafter. The magic had become a permanent mark, a brand upon their body, and it was carried on in their blood.
These people would come to be known as the "Lumenari"
Physical Description – Lumenari look mostly human except for bioluminescence that appears in different patterns over their skin. Their hair is gold or silver in color and the
