someone kill me
WHY ARE YOU GUYS REBLOGGING THIS
So different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed

YOU KNOW THAT FEELING WHEN YOU’RE LISTENING TO A MOVIE’S SOUNDTRACK AND YOU JUST KNOW WHICH SCENE GOES WITH EACH TRACK AND YOU SAY THE DIALOGUES OUT LOUD AND YOU JUST FEEL LIKE FLYING BECAUSE THE VIOLINS AND TRUMPETS AND CLARINETS AND ALL THE INSTRUMENTS AND YOU GET THIS RUSH OF HAPPINESS BECAUSE FUCKING SOUNDTRACKS MAN
I’VE BEEN WAITING MY ENTIRE LIFE FOR SOMEBODY TO ACCURATELY DESCRIBE THIS FEELING

Where is 12?
Apparently me playing Dragon Age equals ignoring everything else, including tumblr. And that makes me feel bad because I do enjoy this website, but the break has also been kind of nice.
Now let’s see if I can post some stuff to prove I’m not dead or gone…
If you’re a writer and you’ve never read a Limyaael rant, you have been depriving yourself of a great series of essays on various aspects of creative writing.
The person known as “Limyaael” started writing “rants” back in 2003, when she was an English grad student studying for her PhD. Since then, she’s written well over two hundred separate rants over the years.
She hasn’t written any new rants in well over a year, but all her old ones have been archived both on LiveJournal and InsaneJournal.
Listed below are several of my favorite rants and short descriptions of what they are about:
Putting your characters through absolute hell
an essay describing seven different, but extremely effective, ways to make your characters SUFFER on massive emotional and psychological levels
an essay describing seven ways to give your villains more depth in their stories by avoiding cliche villain tropes and trying new viewpoints
an essay not about love relationships, but about relationships where one party has significant power over the other (i.e. master-slave, king-servant, charge-bodyguard)
an essay with six points about consequences and the characters who suffer from them and how far you should take it in your story
Avoiding deus ex machina
an essay with five points on how to avoid relying on “deus ex machina” to solve the conflicts and wrap plots in your stories
Had a couple of requests for Sleepy Forge!Fili so here you are!
I can easily imagine him wearing himself out and falling asleep in random corners of the forge, found hours later by his brother or Uncle.
