I Love Hetalia, but this is kindof rediculousWay too many Hetalia fans on DA. I typed in 'Ludwig' in the DA search thing, and everything that came up was Hetalia. Don't get me wrong, I love that webcomic/manga/show but still, it's not the only thing in the world. In order to see the acuall (too lazy to spell check) drumset, you have to add 'drums' and not even 150 devientations show up. Hetalia is not the only thing in the world peoples. If you type in 'Ludwig Hetalia' over 21,000 devintations show up. I love hetalia, but I do think that it IS a "bit" overrated. There are other things. Like Futurama (TV, Comic Book), the Big Bang Theory (TV), Soul Eater (TV, Manga), Garfield (comis strip), Star Trek (TV, Movie, Comic, Novel, too many to list) Doctor Who & it's spinn offs (TV, Comic books, Novels) just to name a few. Like I said, Hetalia is NOT the only thing in the world. I'm problobly going to get a lot of shit for this but I don't care
EDIT: I've decided to go the rest of this week without drawing Hetalia. It woul
HetaliHero's Tips to Writing Reader InsertsI've noticed people have been writing these lately. I thought I'd throw my two bits into the kindling flame of learning how to write reader inserts. Now, I am somewhat new to writing inserts, but I'm not when it comes to fanfictions. Keep in mind, most of my tips tend to come from my own opinions and in no way am I trying to criticize specific writers in any way shape or form. This tip is geared towards series, not oneshots. This might be long just to let you know.HetaliHero's Tips to Writing Reader Inserts3 years ago in Personal More Like This
-Don't just start writing. It's best to map out what the main idea of the story should be. However, you don't have to complete an entire outline before writing. My two main stories: An American Walked Into A Bar and Dear Pen-Pal both have outlines (Pen-Pal's is incomplete). The best part about outlines is that they can be just one sentence. For instance, here is the outline for AAWIAB starting with part five:
-Visits apartment. Sleeps over.
- 1 month passes. Main character is threatene
The Mary Sues and the Very Don'tsI want to take a moment to talk about Mary Sues. Let's all put on our literary hats for a moment.The Mary Sues and the Very Don'ts3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There's obviously a problem with Mary Sues. Making a kawaii desu twelve year old sexual deviant is a fast way to make haters. But that's not saying you have to make your character dull. I've seen about as much Sue-frustration around as the Sues themselves.
But making a young, attractive character does not a Sue make. Yes, as John Green would insist, a character should not be someone you want to be or know or date. That should not make up that character's main persona. But making a character ugly and middle-aged doesn't mean you're making a good character.
Look at Jay Gatsby for a moment. He's young, he's rich, he's charming. And he's not a Sue. These very characteristics later become his flaws. He's nothing but a façade. He's fake. Making a character pretty doesn't mean he's (or she's) a Sue.
Looking at the same book, let's examine Nick. For those of you lucky bastards that haven't re
MORE Reasons to Hate Twilight1) The books were so poorly written as far as plot and dialogue that they had to have James's group attacking and Charlie in danger from the beginning to have anything to work with.MORE Reasons to Hate Twilight3 years ago in Emotional More Like This
2) While I have "inserted" myself into books I have read, it was generally because I fell in love with a well created character or world. Not because I wanted to have sex with Michelangelo's David.
3) After reading Meyer's books I checked the web for outcry by the same people who criticized Rowling for using the occult, and I couldn't find it. To me that's crazy as vampires are part of the occult.
4) Crazily enough if you think about it, Meyer's books are worse because Rowling's was not suggesting that humans should mate with the occult monsters simply because they are beautiful and smell good.
5) It is entirely sexual attraction from appearance and smell, and lacks substance. It is for this reason that I do not consider it a love story.
6) I have found mention that critics are saying that Twilight is horro
What is "Sane"?This is the question: "What is a sane Hetalia fan?"What is "Sane"?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Not really sure if we have covered this before but I think "sane Hetalia fans" is someone who is dedicated to Hetalia but respect others opinions.
We can collaborate and shit, so leggo!
