For the record, to any aspiring creating writers out there who find themselves in workshops obsessed with anti-heroes and tragedy type plot lines:

  • Never let them convince you that because your characters are kind they are uninteresting
  • Fight for your optimism and ideals if they’re what you believe in.
  • Do not let them force you into their gritty idea of how the world works
  • Flaws are important but they do not have to swallow your character whole.

Some writers are going to have a jaded and bitter streak, and that’s fine.  Let them write the assholes and irredeemable messes.  If you don’t want to write those characters, then don’t, and don’t let a room full of cynical 20-somethings tell you any different.  If you stand your ground, generally your professor will back you up and honor your vision.

Birthday idea: ask everybody to give you their favourite book with a dedication and an explanation, why they love it. Your friends will be happy sharing a part of themselves and you will get not only the most sincere recommendations, but maybe a key to understand your friends better. And even if you read it before you could do it again and try to see it through the giver’s eyes. You might see it completely differently.

THIS IS SO CUTE.

I know you don’t like to talk, but you gotta do it for her.

Yadriel & Maria appreciation post ✿◕‿◕✿

HE SAID MORE THAN HE DID ALL SEASON. I THOUGHT HE DIDN’T CARE. I THOUGHT HE WAS JUST BEING NICE AND LETTING HIS BABY MAMA SEE THE BABY THAT HE PROBABLY DIDN’T REALLY WANT AND BARELY LOOKED AFTER BUT I WAS FUCKING WRONG. I WAS WRONG ABOUT HIM. HE’S JUST QUIET. THE DUDE IS STOIC AS FUCK AND HE FUCKING LOVES MARIA AND HE LOVES THAT BABY AND IT’S FUCKING BEAUTIFUL THE WAY HE GUSHES AND TALKS TO HER LIKE MARIA ASKED HIM TO DO BECAUSE HE WANTS HER TO GROW UP SMART AND LOVED.

But also look at how cute the baby is dressed in each visit. Who did that? Daddy did. But that’s exactly the kind of visual cue that gets lost when he’s getting judged for his bald head, tattoos and stoic (thuggish?) demeanor.

i fucking love this show and so very wish there were more programs out there like this

That moment was so fucking cute. I also thought he didn’t care, and then that happens and UUGHH THIS SHOW!!<3
