I support Nerdfighteria, Homestuck, the Canucks, Hogwarts, iAnti, herp, and derp. I also write and draw things.
Shameless pale quadrant manager. Will feelings jam for food, with consent from my moirail.
I have contacts for most messengers, but I'm not necessarily always logged in. If you ever want to talk, whether casually or because something I did pissed you off or just because you need a friend, just send me an ask to log in.

I roleplay like a ferret on crack, and have the attention span to suit it, so kick my ass if I'm not replying.
Roleplay accounts include ostentatiousfuckpig, knightofsword, puppetsexualbrotherfucka, jackabeenoir, and bouncingbabybros. Holy fuck am I inactive.
Why didn’t anyone make this sooner? I hate when people only use the word “said” in stories.
We talked about this tonight…
ALL OF THEM.
ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL OFFFFFF THEMMMMMMMMMM.
Yep. Look at all the words that you can use instead of ‘said’.
You may find it interesting to note that most professional editors/publishers prefer the use of “said” in many instances. That humble little word gets out of the way, while “orated,” “reciprocated,” and “beseeched” do not and tend to make manuscripts look sloppy/far too puffed up to take seriously.
That’s not to say that “giggled,” “muttered,” and “began” don’t have their places. It’s all a matter of balance.
Just saying, but you don’t need to fucking use said or a synonym most of the time. Unless they’re speaking in a certain way, or you need to specify who’s speaking, it’s pretty much useless.
“What are you doing?” Jane asked, leaning over John’s shoulder curiously.
“I’m doing my homework.” John replied, frustrated.
“What subject is it?” She asked.
“Chemistry.” He said.
“It looks pretty hard.” She said. She grimaced at the page.
“It really is.” He said.
