Getting into the mood for dealing with those feckin’ subplots...
Why is it that whenever a woman in comic books has the superpower to "awaken desire in men" or something like that, she's very, very good-looking? Isn't that actually poor storytelling?
Think about it.
Good storytelling shouldn't need to be spelled out, right?
If you want to show that Superman is extremely strong, you don't have him say "I, Superman, is extremely strong!" or lift a heavy box. Instead, you have him lift an entire house. That makes it obvious that he's super-strong, even to people who can't read.
The same thing should apply with being attractive. In order to demonstrate her super-attractiveness powers, a comics character like that should be very ugly. As in, way uglier than any real person.
That way, when every guy who sees her tries to pick her up as soon as she enters the room, it'll be clear that she's got some sort of influence over them, even to people who can't read the language the comic book is in.
If you have a traditionally beautiful woman enter the room and all the guys try to pick her up, well, that's just a slight exaggeration of the real world. There's no real visual indication that any superpower is being used, even though that superpower is the entire point of the scene.
Again: it's poor storytelling.
That's how comics work. They're a visual medium. A lot of the time, especially in superhero comics, it's a bad sign if the visuals alone aren't enough to tell you roughly what's going on in a scene.

Secrets and Oaths: Roar Like a Bear
Dean has just become the newest member of The Bear Lodge, and the president of the lodge welcomes him in.
Binh: Welcome, Urso! You will now be shown the secret Lodge handshake.
Binh shows Dean how to do the secret handshake.
Binh: You will now hear the Lodge toast in its entirety.
First, Binh recites the first part of the toast, the lines which Dean had forgotten earlier.
May we savor the mead
Help those in need
And be bonded as brothers forever
The rest of the members join in and recite the last half in unison, except for Dean who’s hearing it for the first time.
May our shoulders we lend
And our secrets defend
And grow long in the tooth together
Binh: I now declare you, Brother Urso, Brown Bear and official member of Bear Lodge #49! I invite you to roar with your fellow bears!
The Lodge members cheer and roar, and Dean roars with them. All of his tension from the pressures of the ceremony are released as he does so.
“It’s surprisingly satisfying to stand in a room with a bunch of guys and roar like a bear,” thinks Dean. “Who knew?”

Someone asked me that what is my worst.
I said " I have never seen her again".
As annoying as the idea of having a little brother was to Alex at first, he has started to like having someone who looks up to him.
Transcript under the cut:
Justin: Was dad fond of books? Like you?
Alex: I’m not sure if Greg could even read.
Justin: What?! You’re kidding!
Alex: Don’t be so sure...

His Majesty King Brennen was spotted at a local art museum last night simply enjoying the scenery. This was not a scheduled royal engagement, so we are left wondering what His Majesty was doing with such minimal security in a public museum. The gray hairs were truly showing and for the first time we are speculating whether His Majesty’s age could be catching up to him or not.

BEHIND THE SCENES — Emilia’s Birthday. Clermont Estate, 3:10 p.m.
transcript under the cut (click pics for hq!)
𝐛𝐞𝐠𝐢𝐧𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 | 𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐯𝐢𝐨𝐮𝐬 | 𝐧𝐞𝐱𝐭 |
[Harry] So, how did she react?
[Oliver] You don’t want to know.
[Harry] Oh, that bad?
[Oliver] She called five other parents and they all confirmed their kids had no idea there was even a party happening. Emilia told us she trusted one of her classmates to tell the others but... she clearly had no intention on doing so.
[Harry] Is Emi okay?
[Oliver] She didn’t look that upset since her close friends did come. As long as she’s happy, I can’t really be mad about it.
[Paula] Emi? Hello?
[Emilia] Oops, sorry! I was just thinking.
[Emilia] I think I told Laura the wrong date and that’s why no one came.
Or... they just don’t like me.
[Paula] They are missing out. You’re too cool for them, especially for Laura!
[Paula] Laura and her little friends are mean. They are all drama queens!
Who needs them anyways? The two of us is already a party!
[Emilia, laughing] You’re right! Us and Barty.
[Paula] And you’ll always have me! That’s what best friends are for.
[Emilia] Mhm! You’re my best friend too! Always!
[Emilia] I’m hungry, though. I think my friends from Winchester just got here too! Come on, I want you to meet them!

Я пропала на неделю, хотя обещала выложить несколько текстов.
Стыдно ли мне? Нет.
Я тут такое придумала... Ух! У меня самой мурашки от одной мысли о том, что я собираюсь учинить. Вообщем, челлендж обещает быть жарким.
Мне нужно ещё немного времени, чтобы выстроить структуру всего того, что я задумала, а дальше я начну публиковать истории.
Надеюсь вам понравится ♥️
