Modern Major Mary SueI am the very model of a modern major Mary SueModern Major Mary Sue4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
With tons of Mary-Sue-ness in every little thing I say and do
I know next to nothing, for my head is but an empty shell
Yet with my insanely gorgeous looks, you people would hardly tell
I'm spoiled to the bone and I'm only looking out for me
It's impossible for anybody to take me seriously
I'm a girl that everyone bends over backwards to try to please
I got guys surrounding me, like a flower with a thousand bees
(She's got guys surrounding her, like a flower with a thousand bees
She's got guys surrounding her, like a flower with a thousand bees
She's a girl that everyone bends over backwards to try to please!)
I'm very good at making a good story quite unreadable
I'm so sappy and so shallow, it's really unbelievable
As outrageous as it may sound, you folks gotta believe it's true
I am the very model of a modern major Mary Sue
(As outrageous as it may sound, you folks gotta believe it's true
She is the very model of a modern major Mary Sue!
Mary-Sue: Part 10How to Write Dream and Flashback SequencesMary-Sue: Part 103 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
For once, I couldn’t find any how-to guides that I liked so I could reference off of, so I’m on my own for this, otherwise this would probably be longer and probably be more organized. This should actually tell you something: there are practically no definite rules on how to write dream or flashback sequences. There are rules telling you not to write either of sequences, but screw that! If the only reason that having dreams and flashbacks being barred in fiction because they aren’t well-written, then keep writing them and get better at it until you get the hang of it. Telling someone not to do it at all because they suck at it is just telling them to give up before they try. In some stories, dreams and flashbacks are important for different reasons.
There’s no possible way I can tell you the right or wrong way of writing dreams. Some com
BBC Sherlock - Day TwoAs the sun was just starting to rise on London, Sherlock Holmes lay on the floor of 221B and stared upwards. His legs were propped up on the sofa with his back flat against the floor, his sharp eyes writing notes on the ceiling.BBC Sherlock - Day Two4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Cases: Dundas and Moran.
-Posed blood stains which are mirror images of each other.
Purpose: Unknown, possibly symbolic.
Motivation: Desire to send a message? Obsessive behaviour? Self-destructive leaving of clues in order to aid the capturing process?
Method of manufacturing: Unknown, difficult to pose liquids exactly. Created with a pipette or stencil? Maybe a frozen mould which is then thawed to create the shape? Ask Lestrade for Molly's results on the blood to see if there is evidence of temperature changes.
-The cosmetic surgery at the same clinic. Had the two men met?
Briefly rolling over to check the notes Lestrade had given him revealed they
Mary-Sue: Part 8Romeo and Gertrude?Mary-Sue: Part 83 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
“Names. What’s in a name, really? I mean, besides a bunch of letters or sounds strung together to make a word. Does a rose by any other name really smell as sweet? Would the most famous love story in the world be as poignant if it was called Romeo and Gertrude? Why is what we call ourselves so important?” (Julie Kagawa).
I’ll answer that question with another quote:
“I read in a book once that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but I've never been able to believe it. I don't believe a rose WOULD be as nice if it was called a thistle or a skunk cabbage” (L.M. Montgomery).
Names, despite its seemingly simplistic role in society, do have some importance, even in fiction. So how do you name your character? Names aren’t just an arrangement of letters that sound cool or unique; they have meaning, language, and culture behind them. Names are so important, that, in r
