GIF THAT DEFINES YOU AS A PERSON  always

FAVORITE FACE CLAIMS? any hot man. ever. aaron taylor johnson, richard madden, luke pasqualino, luke evans, garrett hedlund, ryan gosling, tom hardy, eddie redmayne, idris elba, aaron tveit. and women *__* rose leslie, michelle fairley, natalie dormer, indira varma, margot robbie… the lists both go on~

WHAT ARE YOU INTO? OTHER THAN MEDIEVAL AWESOMENESS, THAT IS… mostly everything. i love hp rp, watching movies, my ps3 is my life with skyrim, and crying over fictional characters. 

ANY IDEAS ON WHAT KIND OF CHARACTER YOU WANT TO PLAY? YES SO MANY OMFG. i want… the really honest guy who gets mixed into political intrigue by accident and i want the guy pulling the strings behind things and i want all the things. 

DREAM PLOT TO PLAY OUT ON THE SITE? TOO MANY. love-hate ships and will they, won’t they are my jam. but i really want to do a proper equals plot where the girl is just as badass as the guy and then one of them dies probably okay. w/e it’s like i hate my feelings.

Stop asking writing blogs how to portray people with a specific mental illness or disorder.

cleverhelp:

A better question might be “what stereotypes should I avoid when writing about this mental illness” -spottedlaughter
[in response to this]

That is so much better. And I urge people who run these resource blogs to never respond to these questions (or created ‘guides’) with variations of “people with this illness/disorder _____” — if you’re providing medical information, you can link to reputable sources. If, instead, you’re presenting ‘personality traits’ or personal anecdotes about behavior that you either found online or made through your own general conception of the illness through a few hours of search engine experience, it doesn’t have a place in a guide or a resource. 

Lists of personality traits and projected experiences on people who have any specific mental illness, curated by people who aren’t using those generalizations for professional medical communication reasons, only reinforce stereotypes and amalgamated portrayals of multi-dimensional people.

Yeah and for that matter quit picking mental illnesses out of a hat to assign to your characters because they have no traits of their own but you want to feel like you’re writing something deep

via cleverhelp

Don’t take my comment on referencing as a go ahead to write these guides or support them so long as you look at other references. The only people who should be writing that type of post or article are

  • 1) Doctors and Experts in the field in question (not hobbyists or students)
  • 2) people who have the diagnosis in question (or have a person/child under their care who does) and are writing solely about their own experience and not representing it any other way, or possibly 
  • 3) Authors or Journalists who specialize in writing about real people or characters with this diagnosis in either a published or peer-reviewed setting.

as someone who has limited experience with mental illness and disorders, and a writer, i don’t know if it’s the right way to go about it, but i’ve personally always thought it was better to writer a character as a character. in that, for example, i’d never approach characters like ‘allison is bipolar therefore she behaves like x y and z’ but ‘allison behaves like x, y and z, therefore it could be speculated that she has bipolar’ - i think labelling is a major issue that people who write need to be aware of. like, i dunno, my brother has a friend with autism and he’s never like ‘this is my autistic friend who also manages to be funny etc’ it’s more like ‘this is a joke my friend said, he also has autism’. like he’s not ‘autistic’ he’s a PERSON with autism. so this probably isn’t appropriate to everyone and everyone’s experiences out there but i thought i’d ramble on with my own thoughts.

it’s an entirely different ball game of course if you’re trying to write something centred on the disorder or mental illness of the character.

i also worry, with the way i approach things, that some people might feel marginalized because it’s never explicitly stated that the character has a definite disorder??

i guess there’s not one way to go about things.

NURSE PRUDENCE HOLT MOODBOARD.

there’ll be bluebirds over the white cliffs of dover, tomorrow, just you wait and see. i’ll never forget the people i met, braving those angry skies. i remember well as the shadows fell the light of hope in their eyes and though i’m far away i still can hear them say bombs up… but when the dawn comes up there’ll be bluebirds over the white cliffs of dover, tomorrow, just you wait and see. there’ll be love and laughter and peace ever after, tomorrow, when the world is free.
