"Do you think we should be all the way out here? This is Firefly territory." said the woman, her hair now dirty blonde but brighter blonde fragments could still be seen in her hair from when she used to have it dyed. "This isn't exactly a good place to be searching for supplies."
"Does it fucking matter? We need to survive, then we need to survive." Said a man with blonde hair as well, only his was a more natural blonde. He grunted and looked up as more dust fell from the roof. "What the fuck are they doing up there?" He said. The difference in their heights was obvious the man was a fair few inches taller. But they both wore long, torn blue shirts that came with a backpack companion. Their shorts were long but also tattered and worn out, the mans were actually burnt a lit
The Problem With Character SheetsAlright, there are some pretty awesome character sheets out there. I don't personally use them, but I've seen others make them work. I'm not here to dispute the fact that they've got some utility, but I am here to point out one big problem with relying on a list of traits—which is generally how character sheets present these things—to define your character.The Problem With Character Sheets2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
(Note: This also applies to Mary Sue tests. 'Not a Mary Sue' just means your character isn't a perfect storm of coincidence. It has nothing to do with likeability or even believability. <insert dictator here> isn't a Mary Sue, either.)
I think this approach is, if it's the only approach you take to figuring out a character, a really bad idea.

Girl in India = Disgrace = Molest = Rape/murder?My intention was to post about the 100pt giveaway results in this blog today. However, I have changed my mind to post this blog instead after seeing a documentary video from BBC just now.Girl in India = Disgrace = Molest = Rape/murder?1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
I have so much to say. I can write endlessly here but this video says most of it.
It is very shocking to see how females are being deprived in India. I am truly ashamed. But the most shocking thing that I have come across to know very recently from a friend of mine is that in a porn site, the 16th Dec Delhi rape case girl's pic was being used as an Ad with a message saying..
"Want to know how college girls are making XXXXX amount of money every month?"
The image that was used for the Ad was this one (the right one):
Yes, it is true! I have seen it myself. I am not naming the site here because I am not here to promote porn but to tell you that this is true.
This was so very shocking to see how humanity has crossed every lines they could possibly make. HOW CAN YOU USE IMAGES OF THOSE VICTI
