LIZZIE BENNET IS ACTIVE ON TWITTER AFTER ALMOST A YEAR AND FOR A MOMENT MY HOPES WENT UP I MISS THIS SHOW SO MUCH
I made a list like this a long time ago, but I can’t find it.
- Bisexual males who aren’t gay stereotypes or overly sexual.
- Male leads who aren’t tall/handsome/the same as every other male lead in speculative fiction.
- Adults who aren’t automatically antagonists.
- Adults who actually do something useful.
- I really love outcast characters who aren’t portrayed as “haha this kid is weird let’s use them for comedic moments and laugh at their interests or mannerisms and their mere existence”.
- Better characters in general.
- I love characters.
- Teenage characters who don’t spend most of their time engaging in pseudo-philosophical deprecating ideas because they mistake their superiority complex as a dislike for happiness and/or adults.
- Friendship between two males that isn’t a “bromance” or queer baiting (see Sam and Frodo). EDIT: I didn’t mean to say that Sam and Frodo were queer baiting, I meant to say they were an example of what I wanted to see.
- I love European-based fantasy, but I’m sick of every world being similar variations with the same heavy Germanic influence.
- I’d like to see people get more into the fantasy aspect in terms of the genre. Give me some talking trees that cry maple syrup and who have pink leaves that, when they fall off in autumn, turn into little birds. I want to see less of “how can I put a twist on this” and more of “what is something that does not exist”.
- Realistic and common high school settings. I’m sick of boarding schools and schools for super special art/music/dance/acting students where everyone has a great talent.
- Cowboys in space. Maybe with swords. Cowboy-pirates in space.
- I really want to see a Renaissance + Roman Catholic + Southern European inspired fantasy.
- I also want to see a fantasy based on ancient Alexandria.
- I want Westerns to make a comeback, or at least for other genres to take on Western settings/tropes even in a parody fashion (like in Community).
- North America is beautiful and I’d love to see more of that setting in fantasy worlds.
- Those stories where a little light grows brighter and brighter, whether that light is hope or happiness or life or other good things that shine in times of darkness.
- Monotheistic fantasy religions that aren’t viewed as bad.
- M/M romance that isn’t full of tears and negative emotions and magical sex that cures all bad situations.
- Stories that give you that Son of Rambow feel.
- Stories that give you that Wes Anderson feel.
- Stories that give you that Terri feel.
- I see a pattern here.
- More third person POVs in YA.
- YA stories without a hint of romance (unless it’s in the romance genre, obviously).
- Super detailed and amazing plot twists/reveals.
Committing suicide is a crime in the US not so that we can punish the depressed, but because, if it weren’t, it would be illegal for the police to enter a home to save someone they suspected was about to kill themselves.
There has to be reasonable belief that a crime is currently being committed or is about to be committed for the police to enter private property.
I HAVE GREEN CRAYON LIPSTICK AND I AM COMPLETELY AFRAID TO GO OUT IN PUBLIC WITH IT
OR JUST USE TWITTER WITH HASHTAGS OF THE SHOW AN ITERACT AS MUCH AS YOU CAN

DO IT FOR PUPPY GRAHAM
WHY IS THE MAIN CHARACTER IN TEEN WOLF SUCH A J ERK
I don’t understand why many writers avoid describing basic bodily fluids/functions. It’s the best way to be gritty AND realistic without resorting to sexual assault (which is a really cheap way to up the ante, in my opinion). If someone is being tortured for days or is…
so I haven’t seen the latest OUAT (for various negative reasons concerning the show itself) but I see from the title that the episode has something to do with New York City
and I just
how did they miss the golden opportunity to call the episode ‘In New York City?’
ONCE UPON A TIME IN NEW YORK CITY
These are some of my girl rules when regarding and writing female characters:
- Girls have authority. Show leaders that are female and show leaders that aren’t female taking advice from women and girls. Every other piece of media and the world around us is sure to impress that…
