I made these as a way to compile all the geographical vocabulary that I thought was useful and interesting for writers. Some descriptors share categories, and some are simplified, but for the most part everything is in its proper place. Not all the words are as useable as others, and some might take tricky wording to pull off, but I hope these prove useful to all you writers out there!

my mom tried to teach our goats to pee in one certain spot by giving them treats when they’d pee in that spot
they think that now whenever they pee they get a treat
so whenever they see my mom

novel about a morally grey pirate captain who is cursed to die within 5 years for stealing some forbidden treasure, and only giving her heart to someone and expecting nothing back can break the curse
but rather than go on some journey to find some true love or whatever, she decides to use her last years to travel the seas with her crew and collect treasure and drink and be merry
and on the day of reckoning, she is falling more and more ill, and her crew gather all around her to say goodbye to their captain when suddenly the curse is broken. because she gave her whole heart to her ship and her crew, and expected nothing back.
Okay. But let’s talk about Thor for a second. Thor does not get enough love and (Loki forgive me) he is honestly one of the best fucking characters Marvel has. And it’s shown so simply and so beautifully right here. He is so fucking chill about everything. Obviously, he doesn’t live in space, he lives in Asgard. But he knows everyone thinks he’s kinda like an alien, and he just goes along with it because why not? These humans are funny in their lack of understanding, but it’s an endearing kind of funny. Just like in the first movie, where Darcy tells him to smile so she can take a picture of him and he has no fucking clue what she’s doing or what a phone is and it could kill him for all he knows but he just fucking smiles and keeps eating his delicious pancakes because he’s just so chill like that. And if you look at his face in the first gif, it’s very serious and concentrated but the moment Darcy starts talking to him he loosens up and is like “Muscles? Ah, yes I suppose I am quite muscular. Oh, she’s inquiring about Asgard. But she called it space. She seems confused as to my origins, but it’s not of import. I like space, that’s a good name. I shall call it space too.”
And that little head nod he does back to her in the last gif. I’m dead. Deceased. Murdered from Thor cuteness.
He’s just.. ugh, Thor doesn’t get enough appreciation. There are so many little things he does that go ignored but no more. His complete adorableness will be appreciated.
okay so i read a post calling aveline a soccer mom and this is what i think:
Dragon Age 2 Modern AU where Police Chief Aveline Vallen tragically looses her husband in a hostage situation gone wrong and comes into fostering four siblings whose parents were also victims in the same situation. There are 14 year twins Garrett Hawke and Marian Hawke and 12 year twins, Bethany and Carver. Aveline has no idea how do deal with them and their antics, and the fact Garrett and Marian seem to find all these kids that are just as insane (and broken) as they are, and Carver’s hate the for older twins and Bethany’s innocence and night terrors.
Marian and Carver pick fights and Garrett tries to keep them out of trouble. Bethany is just happy to be included. Anders is a troubled teen who grew up in a orphanage, Fenris is an abuse survivor with suppressed memories, Isabella is a 16 year old promiscuous former gang member, and Merrill is the sweet foreign girl from down the street who Carver may or may not have a crush on.
Varric is the Hawke sibling’s social worker with a shady past who Aveline has known for years, and has a habit of hanging around Aveline’s house and a published author of cheesy smut novels Aveline strongly disapproves of. Donnic is a fellow police officer under Aveline’s command who she may be totally and completely in love with, and Marian and Garrett are constantly trying to set her up with him.
Varric jokes that Aveline should called her house, “Aveline’s Home For Troubled Children” and put a sign up. Aveline punch him in the shoulder.
the only reason y’all hate jennifer lawrence is because there’s a convenient little list of everything bad she’s said floating around the internet and you read it and decided yes she’s a horrible person. what if someone compiled a list of everything stupid and ignorant you’ve ever said and done and sent it to everyone they know. are you a bad person? probably not. are you gonna seem like one? probably
Remember when video games were a hobby and not a political soapbox?
remember when gamers kept complaining about how games weren’t taken seriously as an art form or a medium of their own, and then got whiny when people started taking them seriously and critiquing them as most other art and media is also critiqued?
fuck being complacent about mediocrity
