Ugh,I feel like I hurt someone’s delicate sensibilities, because I lost a follower after those queued posts about the disposable woman trope and bullshit of trying to guilt someone into being politically correct went through.

Ugh, I hate writing criticism. On one hand some of it is really useful, things to avoid and how to make your story more interesting. On the other I’m seeing a lot of bullshit on how to avoid tropes and cliches…but you really just need to know how to work these things in a way that fits your story.

No creative work is without cliche or predictability. It’s all in how you weave it.

And please fucking stop trying to make writing fiction about social issues. Don’t fucking guilt trip people into making their books lgbtq friendly or feminist friendly or whatever the fuck else you think will make them more “progressive”.

Why do people complain about the “trope” of killing off a character to move the protagonist or antagonists story along and say it’s sexist and only done with women?

Characters are killed off all the time who are close to main characters and they are not always women. As far as I know the only requirement is that they had some kind of impact on the main characters life and/or their death will impact the main character.

Please don’t listen to people who try and police the way you write characters, do what works for your story, people just want to find some kind of social cause in everything even where there is none.

I get the issue: don’t make the character you kill off hollow! Give us a reason to understand why their death affects the other characters! And that part of the advice you definitely need to listen to because it makes sense. The issue I have is that people laughably want to say that only female characters get killed off without any real fleshing out. Stop trying to make this a social fucking commentary, it’s ridiculous.

The Body Shapes of the World’s Best Athletes Compared Side By Side

Health and fitness comes in all shapes and sizes. Every single one of these athletes is a certified bad-ass.

I’ve posted this before but it’s worth reblogging!

Just a reminder - if you’re drawing a team superhero book and more than one of your characters has the same build YOU’RE DOING IT ALL WRONG

Always reblog


This is a nice reference for anyone drawing athletic characters :)

From Sophie de Oliveira Brata’s Alternative Limb Project

Oh my gosh so beautiful.


This is it. Transhumanism. It’s happening.

If you have to have an artificial limb, why not have a totally badass artificial limb.

Okay so, the human race is flawed like everything else(maybe even a little more flawed), but the one thing I love about us is our ability to turn next to anything into ART. These are so magnificent.
