A college-aged nerdfighter who loves writing, watching youtube and creating art. I enjoy the smell of books, beauty of nature and chatting about life (which almost always includes books, art, youtube, quotes and movies). I am a playful introvert who enjoys day dreaming as much as everyday conversation.
Welcome to my world!
Let me explain you a thing.
When I say I adore Misha Collins, I don’t mean because he’s attractive or funny (though that comes into it), I mean because he is a genuinely nice person.
I was at Asylum 10 this weekend, and for Misha’s autographs he wasn’t allowed to personalise things because of time constraints which is fair enough. However, when I was getting mine, I managed to blurt out (I mean it I was shaking really hard) how important it was to meet him, as Asylum 10 was a goal for me not to kill myself.
The second I said that he stopped writing and looked up at me, and his response was:
“You need better goals.” I almost laughed but I was really trying not to cry, so I responded with:
“No. I don’t.” At this point, he reached across the table and grabbed my hand, pen still off the paper. He looked up at me, shaking and almost crying and smiled and said the simplest thing. At this point he let my hand go.
“See you next year?” I nodded, I was shaking really hard and I picked up the picture and went to leave, but he grabbed my hand again and pulled me back a little. He asked for my name and then wrote what it says on the top left hand corner. He squeezed my hand and smiled and then let me go.
no, I’m not crying
it’s just Misha Collins and his kindness and his big heart in my eye
GOD HE LOOKS SO POLITE

- “mmm let me just savor the taste for a bit, mmmm oh yes thanks again for that”
- “yes that is very tasty. oh no you don’t have to give me anymore you’ve done so much already i couldn’t possibly accept so much kindness and generosity, you are an angel”
About back story: My characters tend to have a lot of it, and I understand that this is a good thing. But I also have trouble /pacing/ it throughout the story so that the reader doesn’t get overwhelmed. And it just feels like I’m doing this:…
Showing, instead of telling, is an important part of keeping a story fresh and interesting. It helps make the story you’re telling jump off the page and the setting and characters more believable. So what is “show, don’t tell” and why is it important?

Why is it important that characters be distinctive?
Generally as an artist, you want your audience to sympathize with your characters, grow attached to them, and get to know them….
dressing a galaxy: Aayla Secura
“The idea for an “Oola Jedi” originally came from a comic book. After seeing Jan Foster’s cover illustration for a Star Wars comic book, George Lucas was so struck by the image of a blue Twi’lek Jedi that he decided to add the character to Attack of the Clones. At the time, Attack of the Clones was already in post-production and Costume Supervisor Gillian Libbert only had two weeks to construct the costume. With over-the-phone guidance from Costume Designer Trisha Biggar and input from George Lucas, Libbert gathered together extra fabric and created Aayla’s costume. In the end, even fabric from Jar Jar’s leather vest was used. With Libbert’s costume and four hours of make-up, ILM Production Assistant Amy Allen became Aayla Secura. With the character’s subsequent popularity, Aayla Secura was also used in Revenge of the Sith.”
In the past, I’ve done some fundraising for Shelterbox when disaster has struck. Shelterbox is going to Oklahoma to aid the people who lost their homes, so I am fundraising again, and asking for your help.
What Shelterbox does is make up these LARGE GREEN BOXES that contain high-quality tents…
Sometimes people have a hard time understanding what a happy relationship between two people who obvs think the other is awesome looks like.
