Anonymous bitched: Hi there! I was wondering if you could help me with a fc? I was wanting someone who was 21+ and could play Bloody Mary? Thank you so much!

I’m not quite sure what all you’re looking for in a FC for her, so I’ll just try to find FCs that resemble Mary I of England. If you wanted something a little different just let me know.

Anonymous bitched: Thank you very much for your help with the brother FC for an Aaron Paul and for correcting me about Rami's ethnicity. I think Jesse Williams would work great. Again, thank you

No problem! I’m glad I was able to help. :)

On Writing: Show vs Tell

readingwithavengeance:

Everyone’s heard this particular piece of advice.  It’s so ubiquitous that even non-writers can spout it off, in a vaguely confused way, if you ask them if they know any writing tips.  It consistently makes Top Ten lists of advice for new writers all over the internet.

And, like so many of the ‘rules’ for writing, what started out as basically a good idea got simplified and codified and meme-ified to the point of being near-useless.  When adhered to with a fanatical bent, the advice of “show, don’t tell” can actually make your writing worse.

Now, many of us are guilty of knowing better but shouting “SHOW DON’T TELL” at bad books.  I’ve certainly done it.  And I think the more appropriate insistence would be “in this particular case, you should have shown instead of told.”  Except, well, that’s not very pithy, is it?  Showing and telling both achieve different goals, and so should be used at different times.   Today, I want to focus on when to use which.

Action Stations!!!

mooderino:

image

There are some basic rules to writing action in fiction that are straightforward and make sense. Keep sentences short to add pace. Be clear and use simple language when describing complicated moves. Show don’t tell.

This doesn’t just apply to fights and chases. Any confrontation, any physical movement, any visual scene will have an action element to it. However, you can’t just replicate Hollywood movie visuals, the picture in the reader’s head won’t automatically have the same impact as stunt-work on the big screen. You have to find a way to translate what’s on the page into an emotional experience for the reader.

Anonymous bitched: I'm looking for an FC that could pass as being around 1 1/2 - 2 years younger than Aaron Paul('79). I want him to be 1/2 black (the characters' mother is Irish-American) & the resemblance to be in their striking blue eyes & their mother's love of photography. Currently I'm thinking of either Michael Ealy('73) or Rami Malek('81) I know that RM was in Need for Speed with AP and ME usually looks older than AP. What are your thoughts on those FCs? Any other suggestions?

I wouldn’t use Rami, because he’s not half black he’s Middle Eastern. If you were open to switching the father’s ethnicity then I could see it, but I wouldn’t use him otherwise. As for Michael, he does tend to look a little older than Aaron, but you could always use a younger version of him. The only other suggestion I could think of would be Jesse Williams, his eithnicity is right and he’s younger than Aaron so he’d be a good fit.

The header used to be a lot more serious and cool before I realized that half of this post is actually about magic and the other half is plot bunny.
Hence the bunnies in top hats.
Origins
The first - and least addressed - question about magic is, “Where does it come from?” Fantasy books rarely address this question in depth. If it is, the answer usually sounds like Obi-Wan’s explanation of the Force in A New Hope: “{Magic} is what gives a {insert magic entity here} his power. It’s an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together.”
Let’s look at a few other options for the origin of magic, because it’s like a dragon hoard of technicolor plot bunnies with wings that also shoot lasers from their eyes. Just that awesome.
Magic could be a resource created by an event, entity/entities, natural occurrence (e.g. a meteor strike, tectonic plate movements), or landform. If you’re looking for a plot point, make the magic finite, like oil - one day, people will run out of magic and that fear drives the story.
Magic could be a gift granted exclusively by a higher power. The higher power doesn’t need to be benevolent or evil - it could have blue and orange morality - and could simply bestow magic randomly upon people for unknowable reasons.
Magic could be a species or living organism (possibly sentient) that makes its own decisions, allows only certain people (or no one) to use it, and generally makes magicians obey it rather than the other way around. I would love to see a magic system that granted magic only to crows or rocks or elves aged 23-59 - something weird like that.
Naturally, since this is magic and not real, the possibilities are endless. Those are just a few ideas to get your mind working.
On a larger scale, magic is easily divisible into two categories:
External - really rare; the magic exists all over the place and anyone can access it, regardless (still waiting for some animals master basic magic to hunt better, ripen berries faster, etc.)
Internal - really common; the magic is there, but can only be accessed by people who have a gift for it
