I HATE WHEN STORYLINES HAVE SO MUCH POTENTIAL AND THEN IT TURNS OUT IT WAS JUST A ONE-EPISODE THING AND NO ONE IS EVER GOING TO MENTION IT AGAIN OHMYGOD
Did you mean:
Swan Queen on We Heart It.
#I love willow and I always will #but this was PERFECT #tara calling willow out and not giving her an inch #because willow fucked up BIG #and it hurt other people #and betrayed tara’s trust #and as much as Tara loves Willow she refuses to be in an abusive relationship #this relationship could have and should have been so much more #than a huge angst pile bc of Tara’s death (via stabandtwist)
#oh my gosh character development #she started out unable to say anything #like that’s our first image of her #the girl in the college wicca group who was too shy to talk #and now not only is she talking #but she is fucking standing up for herself #and she’s not standing up for herself in front of one of the evil character #not in front of a vampire or anything #she’s doing it to someone she loves #and gosh just character development (via willowskindofgay)
#TARA STANDING UP FOR HERSELF #TARA BREAKING OUT OF AN ABUSIVE FAMILY TO FIND FRIENDS WHO RESPECT AND LOVE HER #TARA REALIZING HER GIRLFRIEND IS IN TROUBLE AND TRYING TO HELP HER##TARA STANDING UP FOR HERSELF WHEN SAID GIRLFRIEND BECOMES ABUSIVE #TARA STAYING SUPPORTIVE WHILE VALUING HER OWN WELL-BEING #TARA BEING AMAZING (via jamestiberiusfuckhead)
I was lukewarm about Tara at the beginning, but near the end I respected her so much, and cried like a baby when she died. Just. FUCK it. I have so many feels right now. UGH.
When I see CSI TV shows putting evidence in plastic bags, I cringe. Yes, there ARE times when it is appropriate, but only for temporarily transporting wet items. If you leave wet items in plastic, mold will grow and will destroy your evidence. As a general rule, paper is best for most everything. There are special bags now that are being put as a lining in arson cans because the cans have been shown to rust and damage the arson evidence inside. Personally, I’d use paper for 99% of stuff because you never know if the item is slightly wet or had been wet before and is harboring bacteria. Paper allows air to circulate and eliminates mold problems.
Basic rules: (may vary from state to state)
There’s a simple rule of thumb for deciding which type of evidence packaging—wet evidence goes in paper containers (wet evidence can degrade if placed inside plastic containers) and dry evidence goes in plastic. Items that could be cross-contaminated must be packaged separately. There’s a rule of thumb for other types of evidence, too, and here’s a handy list for the proper packaging of those items.
Hair – Double packaging in paper is best. However, if the hair is completely dry, plastic will work in a pinch. Hairs recovered from different locations must be packaged separately and labeled accordingly. Tape all packaging seams.
Fibers – Dry, and tape-lifted, fibers may be placed inside plastic containers.
Rope, twine, and other cordage – Paper or plastic.
Paint chips – Place inside folded paper. Then place the paperfold inside an envelope.
Tools – Paper or cardboard.
Tape – Wear non-powdered gloves when handling tape. Submit samples inside plastic. If the tape is stuck to an item the item must be submitted with the tape still attached. Do not remove the tape!
Glass – Wrap in paper. Smaller pieces may be placed inside appropriate size cartons.
Arson and other fire evidence – Airtight metal containers. Unused paint cans work best.
Dried stains – Wrap stained item in paper or place inside cardboard box. Large items – moisten swab with distilled water, swab the stain, and package in paper or cardboard after drying.
Blood - Allow to air dry and then package in paper.
DNA – NEVER use plastic!
5 Ways to Use Sound When Writing
Sound is one of the most powerful ways to get into a scene, and when utilized can help your writing flow easier. Below are my favorite tips for using sound to kick you into writing mode (from least to most obvious).
5. Make the sounds of your scene on your computer.
Credit for this idea goes to friend/classmate Annie (who is awesome).
With an app like White Noise, you can actually create the sound of your scene. Characters are walking near a harbor? No problem. Character’s are sitting by a fire? You got it. Place yourself in the center of that scene and use the sounds to help you become fully immersed.
Hello! I've been creating this sci-fi story for the past few months and i've decided i want to get serious with it, in the sense i want to finish it and publish it someday. Any tips on describing space battles and space in general? Thanks in advance!
Here are a couple good articles:
One of my professors told me that the most intelligent people are often the saddest and most depressed because they actually understand how shitty the world is.Ignorance is bliss
You know those anime where the moe alien girl falls from the sky into the life of bored high school shounen protag?
These two are the same ‘cept protag is a desert traveling assassin-turned-merchant alien-ish gal and the moe alien girl is just an idiot witch from another dimension who wound up on another planet after getting lost while trying to find a local potluck. They’re both p ridiculous =v=
