if you ever feel unable to stop watching an entire series in one sitting, just stop in the middle of an episode. i know i often watch stuff before bed so i always stop during an episode, where the plot is in a low, so i don't feel too anxious to go to sleep at a decent time. the end of each episode is supposed to make you watch more, so try and stop before that point.
Idk how I should say this... I don't wanna sound ignorant or anything, please lemme know if I do. But like 9/10 times when I write a piece with ocs, I remember a post somewhere I read abt the g/t community not having enough diversity. Usually I don't really add too much description, so the reader can like, imagine for themselves how characters should look(except for Flynn, but he's a monster lmao) also I can't decide for myself how they look oof. But I still haven't written anyone that's nonbinary.
I find that I tend to like...start with the correct pronouns and then suddenly find an entire two paragraphs where I just????made them he/him or she/her??? For no reason. So then I get hella scared I fucked up somewhere else and I just decide to abort the mission. 🧍🏿♀️ Clown behavior ik
Anyways, what I'm trying to get to is that if anyone is having this issue, maybe write smth like a hero x villain au for practice, or a giant x tiny au with no names? I think maybe I associate gender with names, even if it's shit like aLeX, and that's wat fucks me over? I didn't assign any gender to either, and although I messed up occasionally it wasn't nearly as bad as before. It got me like, super excited, I felt like a fucking legend, no cap. So I thought if anyone was having this issue this would help them as well.
Fun fact actually really really sad fact Ellis was supposed to be nonbinary but I wrote AN ENTIRE PAGE REFERING TO HIM AS HE/HIM SO THEN I WAS LIKE: GUESS I'LL DIE LMAOOO so I made him a cis male
So i just got my second dose of the vaccine and suffered a bad case of the chills as i went to sleep and while my dreams were about the om boys taking turns taking care of me (wow the mc dream), i remember i literally had to do signs of the cross in the air every few turns to be like, "hey, no actual demons come get me ya hear?"
it’s such a strange feeling when something comes into your life like a movie or an artist or a band that just feels like it’s made from the same stuff you are, it immediately becomes part of how you define yourself and it’s everything you see yourself as at that point in your life and everything that you aspire to be and it’s such a bizarre sensation when you discover something and you immediately feel it fill a hole inside you that you didn’t know was there
