Side Note To Fan Fic Authors

twobirdsonesong:

Here’s the thing.

I read a lot of scripts. A lot. From professionals to aspiring writers to complete newbies. Features and pilots. Specs and treatments.

And 8 times out of 10 the fan fic that I’ve read over the last, oh, 15 years is leagues better than this stuff. It’s…

While I admit it’s easier to build off something that’s already existed than to create something from scratch (hence why a lot of those scripts suck,) I do think Fan Fiction does get a lot more flack than it should

I mean, yeah, there is a lot of crappy fan fiction out there. However, there is a lot of crappy fan art too and that doesn’t get such stigma.

This is one of the most heart stopping videos I have ever seen, and felt the need to share this onto my blog. Terry Tufferson jumped off a cliff (The Manly Jump Rock as it is known) in Sydney Harbour, Australia, and landed right next to a great white shark! All filmed while he wore a GoPro. 

HOLY SHIT.

this is scary as hell

Odd how he’s in open ocean whenever the shark is on screen yet next to a cliff whenever the shark isn’t. How does a land mass keep disappearing? I’m calling shenanigans.

From a purely factual & scientific perspective
Psychpathy is a personality disorder. It doesn’t appear as a formal diagnosis in the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) but it is closely associated with antisocial personality disorder or dissocial personality disorder. Here are some of the characteristics. 
superficial charm
grandiose sense of self-worth
pathological lying
cunning/manipulative
lack of remorse
emotional shallowness, 
lack of empathy

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SOCIOPATH AND PSYCHOPATH
Sociopaths and psychopaths have many characteristics in common but one key difference is that sociopaths may form emotional bonds between people, while psychopaths are unable to. It’s is believed that psychopathy is the result of genetics and faulty wiring in the brain while for sociopaths it is a result of a traumatic childhood and their environment. 
FAULTY BRAIN WIRING
Research from Georgetown University hints that the brain of a psychopath has a smaller and thinner amygdala, the part of the brain that recognizes fear. This may explain why they aren’t afraid and can’t exhibit fear. 
Research from Vanderbilt University has shown psychopaths tend to generate a lot more dopamine. In addition Dr. Kent Kiehl  of the University of New Mexico believes in may be a disorder in the paralimbic system of the brain, a system known to be involved in emotion, inhibition and emotional control.
There isn’t much research funding behind this. 
SOURCE & SOURCE
THE POPULAR STIGMA
While yes, many psychopaths have killed, murdered and raped, it’s definitly possible for someone with this disorder to lead a completely normal life and even be successful.
Take neuroscientist James Fallon, for example who discovered he had a similar brains scan to that of a psychopath and after going through a series of genetic tests, it was confirmed.
James never hurt anyone, he does admit he can be a little bit of a jerk sometimes such as not letting his grandchildren win at games, but he is far from dangerous. 
He believes it’s because of his environment, he has a loving home. His parents loved, protected and gave him a lot of attention.

WHERE DO YOU FIT
Here’s a post that will lead you to a link of where you fit on the psychopath spectrum 

I got 76% in the psychopathic spectrum.

48% lol

36% ‘Everything in moderation – including moderation’… Okey-doke.

6%.
You are warm and empathic with a heightened awareness of social responsibility and a strong sense of conscience. … But, although you avoid hurting others, those residing at the higher end of the psychopathic spectrum might not be as considerate, so stay vigilant to avoid being hurt unnecessarily.
This explains a lot for me actually.
I will say one thing, many psychopaths are born into abusive homes, and that causes them to act violently and because of their psychopathy don’t feel a thing about it.

Was walking home from the DMV when I noticed a park was standing in my way. I decided to go over it.

I’M GONNA GET A PART-TIME WEEKEND JOB FOR THE FALL FOR A COUPLE MONTHS IM SO EXCITED!!!

its $8.50 an hour, at a farm nearby that hosts events and a corn maze and all kinds of stuff in sept/oct, and I’ll most likely be doing register jobs for the gift shop or something. The training in in a few weeks.

;n; I can’t believe it I’m actually going to have a REAL job even if it’s only for a little while it’s still experience and some money!! Waahh

So proud of you, Momo! ^^

And this could lead to other jobs, too! Getting yourself out there! :D

So I watched the two new episodes of Gravity Falls Season 2 and I have to say…The Bunker was my most favorite right next to Time Travelers Pig and The Inconveniencing.

But man, I got so much feels out of that Episode…like I never go “Awww” when I watch something, and when Dipper admit how much he was in love with Wendy I nearly wanted to cry SHUT UP OKAY GOSH!

The only thing that bothered me tho was I thought it was a little too soon for Dipper to admit he loved her, like I seriously thought maybe in the end of the series he would finally do so but I dunno where Hirsch is getting at…and but also, yes…I’ll admit I am a Wendip shipper, I know that pairing gets bashed because of the not so big of an age gap..3 years apart? That’s not even bad…then again, I’m speaking from a point of view where my relationship also has an age gap (I’m older than my boyfriend believe it or not XD) but going on….

Honestly, I still ship it because I love them together, and honestly their relationship can still work (I hope) they’re still good friends and the fact that Wendy said that if they were to stop being friends she would be hurt makes it seem like maybe their friendship can blossom…who knows?

Besides honestly, what kinda person then says it won’t work but then wants to do a movie night again? Come on…maybe Hirsch is teasing us but still XD.

Well, to a 15-year-old, 12 can look really young. This may have gone completely different if they were both 10-years older.

I honestly think it was better they got it out of the way instead of beating around the bush for another few seasons. Maybe a relationship could develop more naturally from this instead of the forced drama we find in most shows.

Though if they don’t get together and they remain friends, I’m just glad they did this. It’s a good thing to show kids that just being a hero and a nice guy doesn’t always guarantee you the girl. Sometimes, the best thing you can do is accept that she’s just not wanting to date.

Gravity Falls Season 2 Thoughts

I love that they are breaking up the established status quo. One thing they really progressed in episode 2 will really help with my embarrassment squick with this show. Wonder where it will go from here…
