Pros of focusing a story around friendship instead of romance

the-right-writing:

  • Less danger of writing awful purple prose
  • Friends can survive without constantly being around each other
  • Friendships are really cute
  • It’s easier to write healthy friendships
  • Somebody can be friends with two people without it turning into an annoying “friendship triangle”
  • Positive female-female friendships are underrepresented
  • Female-male friendships without romantic undertones are underrepresented outside of children’s books
  • Most people don’t collapse into irrational heaps of strong emotions whenever they see their friends, which makes it way easier to fight off attacking ninjas
  • More stories about online friends would be nice
  • Friends don’t have to be conventionally attractive in order to sell books
  • Did I mention the cuteness factor?

I AM SO FUCKING SICK OF THE NOTION THAT ONLY THOSE WHO DON’T WANT POWER ARE DESERVING OF IT.

Occasionally it works out, fine, but someone who doesn’t have a passion for leadership is going to do very poorly at the top. Because that shit’s hard, it is ungodly hard, and only if you’re truly committed to it are you going to be any good at it. Someone who just accidents their way into it is going to drop the ball, not to mention the fact that they haven’t prepared themselves for the task, so they’re untrained and untried.

Ambition is not a bad thing. Ambition for power is not a bad thing. Being ruthless and cutthroat and amoral, sure, but not ambitious.

And yet again and again and again and again and again I see books where only the person who doesn’t want the job is considered good enough to have it. And I think it’s born out of this idea that ambition is evil, but at the same time they need to be in charge for the story to work, so we end up with this fucking trope that is literally the opposite of sense-making.

I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel all alone.

When I said this, I didn’t mean it like “Don’t you DARE try to be a writer unless you’re doing it like this!” I meant it as a way to say hey, don’t worry so much when you’re writing. Stop thinking about this Great Story you have in your head and why is it not coming out like my perfect vision oh god I must actually be a horrible writer oh dammit this is terrible I’m a hack oh no! I’ll never be published and I’ll never be Successful or Important and why am I even trying dammit dammit dammit!
Which, of course, is way easier said than done. I haven’t met a creator in my life who doesn’t suffer from at least a touch of impostor syndrome, and I know I fall into this trap a lot. But the more you can avoid thinking about it, the more work you get done.
When you’re getting the ideas out, don’t think about editors, don’t think about readers, don’t think about writing a golden shiny piece of perfection. Just write.
Think about all that other stuff later. It’s distracting. Just write.
Just write.

[Rolling Girl] as RivaMika.
I watched PV for this long time ago, but when I recently saw this again RivaMika(Eren) story just kind of came into my mind..
Basically Mikasa’s tattoo on her wrist contains the power to move the time backward and Mikasa uses it to save Eren again and again until she is all wounded but fails to save Eren from death.
Levi was the only one who knew (or realized) that Mikasa was turning the time back over and over again, and at last he couldn’t stand seeing Mikasa breaking herself he stops her.

EruMika Week 1.1: Kaleidoscope

Mikasa knew the world was more than just black and white. There were shades in between and close friends who breathed color into her world just by simply being nearby. To her, the world was a stained glass window—clear cut colors with limited patterns and borders, changing only by the light that shined through during the day.

But he was different. She was confused by his colors that changed from somber to secretive with a touch of amusement whenever they talked. Every encounter with Commander Smith left Mikasa in a dazed state of confusion because he was not structured like the rest. To her, he was an ever-changing kaleidoscope that she couldn’t frame.

She was willing to follow his lead forever if it meant she could always see the world in motion again.
