Summoning Sickness - Oasis and Ryan - Meeting Raymond

                It starts as a boast, Ryan declaring to Oasis – his childhood friend, dusky-skinned and pretty with a bit of her baby fat lingering but still growing into her frame at thirteen, settled on a root overhanging the muddy creek in the woods out back of her mother’s house, feet swinging idly with her heavy boots covered in mud thunking every so often against the dirt - that they’re more than smart enough to tap into the powers their families hold, to speak to the dead, that he’s been reading things, and that he bets they could be the youngest successful ghost-talkers in generations.

Alright, I gotta ask about the tags. Time travel but not time travel? Your book keeps getting more and more fascinating! :0

barbaricyip asked: is there anything you find yourself writing about a lot

badrowboatcop:

what DON’T I write frequently. by which I mean “I’m a six trick pony, once you’ve read one thing, you’ve read them all.”

as a writer, I’m. really disinterested in epic cycles, Large Stories, apocalypse, Light vs. Dark, and ostriches. I like pre-existing relationships that have reached a turning point, where depending on circumstances, things are set to explode or come apart messily—and then they still have to keep working because shit, son, this party ends when it ends, tough luck. I like lapsed friendships and romantic relationships where both parties have run out of excuses for the same reason, since it’s the “we ran away and whoops, here we are again” AU.

what I like about it most is the tension of old anger and feelings and current perspective. You want to say that whatever happened back then is done and it probably didn’t have that much of a lasting effect, but it still has an obsessive pull and pain that brings you back to that same spot over and over again. I’m drawn to the emotional struggle, but I also love the challenge of finding a dramatically satisfying resolution. It’s … really hard, though… upset gargle.

“No. I. No, we don’t want your help. It’s not worth it.”

Oasis glances at Ryan, then to the creature standing outside the circle, its hooded eyes staring at them both, keen and hungry. “It’s never going to be worth it.”

30 Days of Character Development!

oslusiadas:

HEY RPERS, what if I started a meme. It’s a simple meme. You answer one question every day for thirty days, and by the end of it, you hopefully learn even more about your character and become a better roleplayer because of it! 8Dc  Y’all should totes spread this around. 

Here’s the list.

Hey tumblr, have you ever thought to yourself, “dang it’d sure be cool to set a project in something other than the current times,” but when you go to look up references on google, all you get is a horrible historical pastiche of days gone by?

Well boy howdy, do I have a reference for you!

The Wishbook Web has scans of entire consumer catalogs from past decades, ranging from the early 30s to the late 80s. Each catalog has pages upon pages of reference of clothing, accessories, and shoes for all ages, as well as toys, gadgets, and all sorts of junk that you might buy for yourself or your loved ones. While the website exclusively has Christmas catalogs, the photos and illustrations show products that you could use year-round.

omg yay

THE DOMESTIC MEME

Give me one of my ships any ship, crack or otherwise and I will answer the following questions about my personal head canon:

who is the big spoon/little spoon
what is their favorite non-sexual activity
who uses all the hot water in the morning
what they order from take out
what is the most trivial thing they fight over
who does most of the cleaning
who leaves their stuff around
who remembers to buy the milk
who remembers anniversaries
