Parenting, you’re doing it right.
I can only hope to be this type of parent.
These parents make my heart melt
That last one really got me. That’s such a good idea, and bless his dad for wanting his son to not feel left out. All his friends were probably like “Look at all my candy” and Fletcher was like “LOOK AT ALL MY TOYS HAHA I GOT TOYS”
I am all about Bucky thinking that Captain America is a goddamn joke
and that it’s an even funnier joke when he finds out Cap is Steve
Because he knows Steve SO WELL he knows ALL THE WAYS he at once fits the persona perfectly and all the ways he doesn’t fit it at all. Steve…
#somebody calls steve ‘mature and responsible’ #steve looks all modest and goes ‘well thank y—’ #'you're KIDDING right' bucky interrupts #'he used to pick fights with guys three—no FOUR times his size #kept trying to join the army so he could what? shoot a few bullets before a fly landed on him and took him out for good? #then some guy whispered ‘psst you want us to make you bigger? we think it might work this time’ to him from a dark alley #and steve said ‘yeah okay’ and by some miracle it didn’t kill or deform him #so then he spent some time skipping around bopping nazis on the head #which yeah sure okay #but then I was gone maybe SIX MINUTES before he decided it would be fun to grab a plane and play chicken with an ocean #so that knocks him out for a while but when he wakes up does he decide to take it easy for a while?#maybe stop trying to give the people around him as many HAPS—that’s heart attacks per second—as possible?’ #'bucky—'#'shut up steve #the answer is no #no he does not #he starts fighting aliens #ALIENS I tell you #and after he gets knocked around by THEM things taper off for a while #only eight maybe nine unnecessary life-threatening stunts a week #until he decides it’s time to shake things up and takes on a vast government agency full of traitorous trained killers because why not? #oh but he gets help #two people #you know to even up the odds #and—’ #'BUCKY' #'shut up steve I'm telling her how mature and responsible you are' #'I'm sorry I forgot my parachute yesterday could you please just let it go' #'WE WERE FLYING OVER A DESERT DID YOU THINK YOU COULD DIVE INTO SAND JUST AS EASY AS WATER'#'I'm not used to putting chutes on! it was an honest mistake! I'm sorry ma'am here's your autograph we'll just go now c'mon buck'

dying. just dying.
Since The Hunger Games, Teen Wolf and Arrow have gotten really popular the amount of characters with archery in their skillset has grown a lot. Here’s a guide on this ancient sport. NOTE: In this guide I’ll only talk about archery with a recurve bow since that’s the only kind of bow I have personal experience with.
Q:How much does a reader need to know about a character to at least sort of care when I brutally kill them off?
Making readers care when a character dies takes a lot more than a list of things we know about them. We could know everything about a character and still not care if they died—what counts is connecting with readers. Strong character concept and development is the key to making a reader care about any character, regardless of context. Utilizing symbolism can help twist the knife even further. The emotional death scene is more than losing a character. It might be losing a friend or family member, closing the book on a hated enemy, or a senseless loss of someone we barely knew.

First drafts: what they should and shouldn’t be A first draft should have neither too much nor too little importance attached to it. It is a place to work out ideas and explore your story’s potential, but it is generally not the right place to worry about rewrites or line edits.
Writers approach first drafts in a number of different ways. Very few writers produce polished first drafts, and the ones who do tend to be experienced authors. However, even most experienced writers extensively rewrite and revise their first drafts.
