I am now in the “making shit up as I go along” stage of writing a fanfic. I see a lot of editing of this part of the chapter in my future.
also kids shouldnt be scared of their parents. theres a difference between “im not gonna do this bad thing because i respect my parents and i dont want to disappoint them” and “im not gonna do this bad thing because im scared of what my parents will do to me if i do”
When I first started writing fanfiction, never in my life did I think “Hey, you know what I’d really love to write? One of my favorite characters having a panic attack in three different languages!”

Getting bad again for no reason after you’ve been so happy for a long time is literally one of the worst feelings ever
I often find myself longing for truly flawed heroines who have to struggle with their own dark side. That’s the enemy that most of us truly have to face in real life - the fact that all of us have the potential to do truly terrible things, as well as truly great things. What ultimately determines the pith of our character is how we choose to handle that potential.
Every one of us has a monster in the mirror. We’re forced, by vice of being human, to continually question our relation to that monster. Do we slay it, tame it, or let it devour us? Or, do we walk in the steps of Faust and make a deal with it in the hopes of some kind of personal gain? (via schrodingersbrain)
