This determines nothing more than the written hope to be understood for what one is, not what one should be.

With all the heat Anita Sarkeesian gets for her Tropes series, you’d think it was a new topic, but Gene Siskel & Roger Ebert had a discussion on a similar theme when they were talking about the influx of slasher movies on their show in 1980.


I can’t believe this post made it to my dash with this valuable commentary deleted. This is the entire reason that this show came up in the first place. Here’s the Polygon article that broached the subject. It’s incredibly relevant to entertainment media of all kinds today.

Part 1 was already linked by the OP, but here’s part 2 of the show for convenience. (x)

I am angry about this. Angry that hardly anything has changed for the better. Give me back those long-ago matriarchal societies please and thanks.

Archetype Inspirations - The Storyteller

They’re dreamers who speak in rhymes and songs while they dance with bare feet in flower fields with voices as soft as a breeze, whispering stories in your ears.

They chased one another
lived for each other
through the ages of space
they were sworn to be lovers

In  many  ways  she  was  as  cool  and  competent  as  Henry;  tough-minded  and  solitary  in  her  habits,  and  in  many  ways  as  aloof.

TWO SIDES OF THE SAME COIN | a mix for the god of light and goddess of wilderness. ( listen )

He was like the sun, glorious with lights.

She was like the forest, brave and wild.

But most importantly, both had the power to send plagues upon mortals.

For reasons

yes: i am a dreamer; a slow folk mix for dreaming and lying in bed

”Yes: I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.”

Kurt Vonnegut: 16 Rules For Writing Fiction

1. Use the time of a total stranger in such a way that he or she will not feel the time was wasted.

2. Give the reader at least one character he or she can root for.

3. Every character should want something, even if it is only a glass of water.

4. Every sentence must do one of two things — reveal character or advance the action.

5. Start as close to the end as possible.

6. Be a sadist. No matter how sweet and innocent your leading characters, make awful things happen to them — in order that the reader may see what they are made of.

7. Write to please just one person. If you open a window and make love to the world, so to speak, your story will get pneumonia.

8. Give your readers as much information as possible as soon as possible. To heck with suspense. Readers should have such complete understanding of what is going on, where and why, that they could finish the story themselves, should cockroaches eat the last few pages.

9. Find a subject you care aboutand which you in your heart feel others should care about.

10. Do not ramble.

11. Keep it simple. Simplicity of language is not only reputable, but perhaps even sacred.

12. Have guts to cut. Your rule might be this: If a sentence, no matter how excellent, does not illuminate your subject in some new and useful way, scratch it out.

13. Sound like yourself. The writing style which is most natural for you is bound to echo the speech you heard when a child.

14. Say what you mean. You should avoid Picasso-style or jazz-style writing, if you have something worth saying and wish to be understood.

15. Pity the readers. Our stylistic options as writers are neither numerous nor glamorous, since our readers are bound to be such imperfect artists.

16. You choose. The most meaningful aspect of our styles, which is what we choose to write about, is utterly unlimited.
