I have a pet peeve to do with writing sometimes
So when you write something where you or a character is drawing out the length of the word
Do so in a way you can actually pronounce, it not only makes it better to read aloud and more consistent, it's generally more aesthetically pleasing as well
As a general rule if you don't wanna have to check every time, you can draw out vowel sounds, and not consanat sounds. Tho of course there are a few exceptions and they all have to do with the shape of your mouth and how it makes the sound
Letters like a, e, I, o, u and h, are open sounds, you pronounce them with an almost or completely open mouth (the sounds they make not the letters themselves), these are letters you can draw out as long as you can breath out
Most consonant letters rely on changing the shape of your mouth to make the sound (think B, C, K, D, J, P, etc) these make up a good amount of letters and are letters you can't draw out at all
Some consonants have some interesting qualities, M, N, F and S while are not open sounds are letters you can hold because you don't move your mouth when you say them (you can read mmmm or sssnake and know exactly how those sound even tho the consonants are extended) its much less common for N and F but you can hold those sounds
Thank you, let me know if I've made any mistakes

Let’s Talk About Camp Camp
Tw for Cursing, Camp Camp, All Caps
So, let’s talk about it. I’ve been browsing the Camp Camp tag, and I’m starting to see more “Don’t interact if you are/have a CC profile pic/ CC apologist/ CC fan” and I wanted to talk about it.
Lets just start out by saying I am not a CC apologist. I do believe the show is heavily flawed, especially with it’s race jokes. Honestly, I am on the team of getting rid of those. Especially Dolph. Please, get rid of him. It’s really gone to far, and even though you have toned it down, please don’t really feature him anymore. Order of the Sparrow was heavily flawed as well, but let’s not talk about that right now. Let’s talk about why people are mad.
1) Race Jokes (Totally get it, you have every right to be mad)
2) Adult humor (It’s an adult show)
3) Bad plot/characters
For number 1, I completely get it. But, I’d like to state right here and now, nothing is fucking perfect. NOTHING. If we boycotted everything that was flawed in some way, or took a joke too far, or did something offensive, practically nothing would be available. Try boycotting Disney, they did tons of shit wrong multiple times. Most classic books. Pixar. The office. The all did the same thing, but for some reason, you aren’t mad. I get it, you don’t like the race jokes. Me neither, I hate them. Fuck them. But once again, this a young studio that is still doing trial and error. I can name maybe three shows that were made popular enough for me to see, and one year ago I only knew about RWBY. That’s it. They are doing Trial and Error, which means mistakes are going to be made, ESPECIALLY because it was their first adult themed show. I’m not saying you have to watch it, but please, don’t immediately try and block me because I watch this fucking show.
2, It’s a fucking ADULT SHOW. It’s not meant for kids! That doesn’t mean kids aren’t going to watch it, that just means they’ll do it in secret or something. If you don’t want to watch it because the humor is too adult or not what you like, you don’t have too! No problem! Have a fantastic day! But the problem is complaining that it has “Adult humor”. That’s the point, it’s an adult themed show.
For 3, got it. Don’t watch it. Plot’s terrible? Ok, don’t need to hate it because of that. Stupid characters? That’s fine, we like them.
Point is, please stop with this whole “Camp Camp is horrible!” thing, because so many other companies that you watch do the exact same thing. I just want to enjoy my stupid ass show in peace, without hate getting thrown at me every time I browse the tag. I get it, you have every right to dislike it, but please don’t clog up our tag with hatred. Just let us enjoy our damn stupidity in peace.
