“Screw writing strong women. Write interesting women. Write well-rounded women. Write complicated women. Write a woman who kicks ass, write a woman who cowers in a corner. Write a woman who’s desperate for a husband. Write a woman who doesn’t need a man. Write women who cry, women who rant, women who are shy, women who don’t take no shit, women who need validation and women who don’t care what anybody thinks. THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN. Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people. So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong. Write characters who are people.”
i had no idea how much i needed a father-daughter bending tag team until i needed it.
badass korra in the badass avatar state (even though it was provoked by TERRIBLE POISONING.)
A woman’s strength isn’t just about how much she can handle before she breaks. It’s also about how much she must handle after she’s broken.
a strong female character is one who is defined by her own characteristics, history and personality, and not solely by the actions or needs of other characters. she is a person in the story, not a prop. x
Hey everyone! A year ago today, The Last of Us came out and ruined us/changed our lives/made us feel things we never felt before/became one of the best games we’ve ever played/etcetc., and in spirit of TLOU’s one year anniversary, I am holding a giveaway! 5 of you lovely followers will win either one of these gorgeous poster books, or an awesome journal! Check below for details:
This giveaway will run for ONE DAY ONLY, the anniversary of course! Once the clock reaches 11:59pm EST tonight and it officially becomes June 15th, the giveaway will close and the winners will be chosen randomly. All you have to do is reblog this post! Feel free to reblog it as many times as you like, but please keep in mind I will only count you for one entry. Likes do not count and you do not have to follow but like I always say, if you’re a fan of TLOU, then why not? :) Per usual, I like to spread the love beyond the US, so this giveaway is not limited to location! (Oh yeah, and Tumblr is not affiliated, etcetc).
*The first three names chosen will receive a poster book and the last two names chosen will receive a journal. If for any reason you are a winner and are not okay with the prize you receive, you can forfeit your prize and another person will be chosen.*
If you have any questions, please send me an ask and I’ll respond ASAP! Thank you so much for being awesome and amazing and I wish you all the best of luck.
The giveaway starts now!
