Making a Mountain of a Molehill… or a Scandal Out of a Two-Second Scene

For about a month now, all I’ve been hearing about is Disney’s first “openly gay character” in the movie Beauty and the Beast. Most of the articles were about negative reactions, specifically parents. Many complained that it was implanting thoughts into children’s brains, or asking what they would tell their children, etc…

A Divergent AU That Hasn’t Made A Story

I read something. Rather I like it or not, the writer part of my brain automatically wants to write about it. If I like the ideas, and I’m not ashamed to say I actually read that, I might translate that into fanfiction.

Interesting Way to Do Character Sheets

So a while back I was looking for characters sheets and quizzes to help with the characters I was writing. Some were the typical character sheets – the ones made for authors. But I came across one that was for personal insight.

Originally, I was going to tackle it the way I usually do. But a little ways into the first one I started having fun with it. I think I found out more about my characters through that.

Both trilogies are seriously alike. A sixteen-year-old girl from an overlooked faction/district in a dystopian society gets put in a competition with a limited number of winners and high stakes. At the end of the book, she becomes a major part of the rebellion – which fills up the next two books. However, the undercurrents of these two books are extremely different.

DC Extended Universe Vs Marvel Cinematic Universe

Finally, no I am not claiming that I can make better movies than whoever was behind BvS and Suicide Squad. That doesn’t mean I can’t critique their works.

The Palace of Snow

A crunch sounded with every step

As he crushed the snow beneath his feet

He zipped his jacket up to the top

How he longed for a little heat

 

The sun reflected off the snow

It was as bright as it was cold

The wind howled as it brought up snow

A sight prettier than gold

 

There were no signs to show the way

He only knew to go north

Past the field, through the trees

To a place of great worth

 

A priceless palace

Standing proud above the trees

With silver doors and bronze floor

With locks of crystal and diamond keys

 

He kept walking through the snowy grass

The walk was challenging and long

The field was empty aside from him

No mice or birds, not a squeak or birdsong

 

The field turned into forest quicker than light

With fallen trees glistening with snow

And bare trees with branches covered in ice

The forest appeared to be aglow

 

The sun and snow glared with sunlight

As the man continued on

Across a bridge over a frozen creek

He wondered where the fish had gone

 

Silent except for the crunch of snow

And the freezing wind’s howl

The forest smelled like snow and moss

It was all good, nothing foul

 

He knew he was nearing the palace

When the snow turned to stone

A path bordered by frozen water

A path hardly known

 

Ice covered all but the path

So the man did not slide

But the stone wasn’t smooth

Its care long denied

 

The man tripped once or twice

But he did not fall

He kept his eyes on the horizon

Watching for the opal wall

 

Soon he arrived at the entrance

To a cracked wall and smashed door

He made his way on half of a bridge

And onto a beaten floor

 

And he arrived at the palace

Described by legends sung long ago

And he made camp at the ruins

The ruins of the palace of snow
