BP if it's someone's motto.
DP if someone comes up with a sarcastic comeback to it.
TP if the person who says it is doing NaNoWriMo.
2. ~Have a character with a theme song. Every time that character turns up, have the song play. It can be from a nearby car, someone's headphones turned up too loud, the elevator music gone horribly wrong, whatever.
~~bonus points if people are aware of this, and actually use the song to predict that character's arrival. "Oh, so-and-so must be almost here; I can already hear [song]."
~~You are a truly awful person if you use Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up". A terrible, horrible person. And you get bonus points for how entirely twisted you are.
3. A character constantly makes guesses of the future based on cloud shape.
BP: If this guesses are as idiotic as "a family of grizzly bears will be joining us for tea in eight days" or "frogs are grumpy today".
DBP: If one of those crazy guesses t

What are your three most popular nicknames?
No idea. Bitch maybe? No one cares enough to give me one.

Blue. Dark blue. Followed by black. I like silver to.

What type of animal/race of human/mythical species are you?
…Demi-god. Do I look like a monster to you?
(Me: It means like, what would you want to be. Or identify with.)
Oh. Well. That’s stup
HumansLife is precious. So very precious. Its short. It trickles like the grains of sand in an hourglass. It looks like so much, so much time, but its so very little. Its blown away in the wind, flows away in the water. Every day, every hour, is just another step towards death. Pain, both fleeting and long, only means you're alive.More Like This
Happiness, that brief, happy emotion, means you could still find the good in the world. Could still find laughter despite the creeping dark.
Love, that elusive, sticky emotion, means you’ve found where you belonged. Maybe, maybe, that you’ve found who you belonged to. Who belonged to you.
Anger, that heat in the blood, only means you could still find something to get angry about. Something you could care for.
Hatred, the opposite of love, yet could stem from love, means that you saw the dark, or saw the light. Hatred is fickle, and often a heavy burden. It burns bright, true, but often leads to the dark.
The dark. It creeps and scuttles, shoots from sh

A simple word, with a simple meaning. Officially, it’s an attitude of optimism. A mindset that is often considered naïve- believing the best outcome will happen, no matter the odds.
We live on it. Thrive on it. Even villains and those considered ‘evil’ or ‘bad’ have hope. The hope to pull off a robbery without being caught. The hope that a shady business deal will go down without a problem. It’s all hope.
The darkest of our society use it and probably never realize it. Without hope, humanity would wither. We simply cannot exist without hope. The hope that today will not be the day a random and tragic accident takes our life. Every day carries the chance of death or tragedy- but we hope that it won’t happen. If we didn’t hope, if we didn’t get out of bed and face the day, our system would crumble.
How would we accomplish anything without hope? The hope that a much worked for promotion will happen. The hope that you c
Art Needs YouA scene can be painted with words as well as brush strokes. The words are like the colors. There tone, the specific word, can change the meaning of a sentence drastically. The page, whether it is a computer page or paper, is the canvas.More Like This
It is the blank slate that an artist must put their mark. The idea can be daunting-How am I to fill a space so white? So blank? Then the words-or the paint-begin to flow. The idea was there all along, just waiting to be freed. It may not be what was originally intended, but it is art nonetheless. It doesn’t have to be Da Vinci or Hemingway. It may never reach greatness. However, you created something, no matter how novice, or how professional. Its practice, learning, and heart. You can’t have art without heart.
You pour heart and soul into everything you create. It makes the art come to life. You post it with faith and hope. Faith that you’d done the best you could. Hope that others would like what you worked so hard to create
