If possible, I’d like whoever it is to push me to finish chapters so I don’t procrastinate too much, have a pretty good amount of knowledge on “Attack on Titan”, be willing to be critical of my OCs, and preferably speak some Latin. Thanks so much.
Q:The 2014 version of Endless Love is just one big Sue story.
I watched that trailer, and just fifty shades of noped right out of there.
Q:Old Magic would have been a lot more entertaining of Kate /had/ tried and/or succeeded to kill Jarrod to siphon off his magic powers OR if she had legitimately joined with Rhauk to become an evil overlord sorceress. It would have been so much better if she were a villain.
It really would have.
Q:Dear msp, are you really the one sending anon messages? Because I AM CONFUSED
Uh, no. I haven’t had the energy to send any messages.
What is the anon saying?
Is the anon trying to be as perf as me because that is just unacceptable.
If you’re questioning whether I still exist, it’s okay.
I’m questioning it too.
Q:I think it's hilarious that Suethors say that their characters "aren't like other girls" but use average to describe them all the time. Average means the same as most other things/people/whatever!
see i think this type of Sue stems from the confusing message that we get fed, be just like everyone else but not those girls, along with “you don’t know you’re beautiful, that’s what makes you beautiful” (I love 1D but urgh,those lyrics!).
The “average” Sue is usually a self-insert/wish fulfilment thing, these are people who are taught self-confidence is really arrogance and that your validation must come from others, so they create an “average” character who’s One True Love is the only one who can see how special they really are.
Because these writers know there is something special about them, that there is something they can do better than anyone else, they just don’t know how to express that without seeming full of themselves,
which when you think about it is very very sad.
EDIT: Situations like this are the reason why Mary Sues can actually be a good thing, it is a way girls can find some empowerment. Everyone needs a bit of Sue in their life, we just like to make fun of the times when Suedom is a bad thing
Q:Re: that Sherlock fic. There was an old comedy film involving a dinosaur being stolen from a museum! It had a microchip in it or summat.
yes! I love that film!
*hurried Google search*
It’s called One of Our Dinosaurs is Missing:
Lord Southmere escapes from China with a microfilm of the formula for the mysterious “Lotus X”, and is captured by Chinese spies who have been instructed to retrieve the microfilm from him. Escaping from his captors, Lord Southmere hides the microfilm in the bones of a large dinosaur at the National History Museum. However, he has been followed into the museum by the spies, so Lord Southmere asks Hettie, (his former nanny), to retrieve the microfilm before the spies can find it. He is then promptly recaptured by the head spy, Hnup. Hettie, and her friend Emily (another nanny), devise a plan for a group of nannies to search for the microfilm, but they are unsuccessful in their endeavors. The spies then decide to steal the dinosaur, but are outmaneuvered by Hettie and Emily, who - with a young nanny named Susan - take the dinosaur skeleton on an unforgettable journey around the countryside. When Hettie’s two young charges, Lord Castleberry and his younger brother, Truscott, also become involved in the plot, all seems lost - especially for Lord Southmere!
It’s a classic British farce film, I love it so much :)
Q:This is probably a strange question, but is it probable that if someone is a genius (Einstein-level) with only a couple years to live, he would want to make artificial insemination possible for his wife so she can have multiple children after his death? Because he believes that intelligence is very likely to be passed down, so he would want his genius to live on through his children. His wife has always wanted a lot of children and has an obsessive-love for him, so she's willing to do it.
it’s absolutely probable. I actually have met people who after being diagnosed with serious illnesses have made similar preparations. What they will need is a legal document saying he gives his wife permission to use his sperm after his death because that’s where you can run into issues.

yay we have a latin speaking SNK fan!
you must have seen that post and thought “my time has come!”
This song has the most horrible case of “Not Like the Other Girls” syndrome I have ever seen, and to add insult to injury it’s a guy singing about wanting a girl who Isn’t Like the Other Girls.
I might’ve thrown up in my mouth a little.
Q:I have too many ocs. 127+ ocs. i have counted. is this bad. I've run each of them through a system of mary-sue tests, they've all come out to emit low-level sueage. below average amount of sue emissions, actually. Am I good? is there still something wrong with me?
you just write a lot. i assume this is over a few stories, now look at people like GRR Martin who have that many in one story!
go back and take a look at these characters if it really bothers you, how many of them are Barbie characters? By this I mean essentially the same character just doing a different job the same way you used to get Vet Barbie and Astronaut Barbie etc.
Q:I was wondering if I could ask a favor of you guys. I'm looking for a beta reader for a fanfic series I've been wanting to start. I was hoping you guys could give me a promo so I could get someone to help.
Q:1) two of my characters were lauded as well-rounded. I feel like I've gotten the Holy Grail of characterisation. 2) still no signs of the link to that Sherlock fic that got used as The Empty Hearse?
1) bravo! having read some of your work myself, i agree with the compliment.
2) i keep forgetting to ask my friend which fic it is (he’s written dozens!) i do know it’s more absurd moments involve Moriarty stealing a dinosaur skeleton from the British Museum.
