Thoughts on an Orphan Black Madoka-type AU where they're all magical girls?(maybe it's just the fact that the idea of Sarah Manning as a magical girl is super comical to me for some reason)

sharkodactyl:

Oh my god, I love these two shows so much. Let me walk through what I think each clone’s theme/weapon/wish would be. Delicious.

Sarah, I think, is the Homura of the show: she makes it to the end, watches all the clones die, watches her own family die, and refuses to accept it. She wishes to go back and protect everyone.

Then she’s plopped right back at the train station with Beth. Is there ever a time when she’s not too late, to save Beth? ~*~*~wait and see~*~*~

Sarah doesn’t get a weapon. She has some sort of time-thing, like Homura’s shield. I don’t like just ripping off Homura’s shield, but I also really like the Sarah-shield-protectiveness thing. So who knows. Her costume is incredibly bare-bones, but it has armor-like plating on the shoulders and joints. Hidden warrior.

I ALSO LIKE THE IDEA OF HER HAVING A LION’S MANE OOPS

Beth wished for a reason to live; her weapon is a lasso. Basically a noose. ;)

It’s also a play on “tied to life,” so she has a lasso and various rope powers. Her costume is basically a play on suicide – a big collar, billowy sleeves that are slit open vertically at the wrists, etc. Despite this, no one has figured out her wish yet. She doesn’t tell anyone. She makes jokes. She’s afraid it isn’t working.

Cosima was sick. She wished to not be sick. I don’t know her weapon but I like the idea of her being able to blood-bend, sort of? Summon reddish liquid out of the air and fight with it. Alternatively: she fights with a book and can use paper to make weapons, copies, etc.

Alternatively alternatively: she has a chain that’s bright colors, like a string of DNA, and she uses that. But that overlaps Beth’s weapon, so I don’t know. Someone else figure this one out, please?

Alison wished for her life to be normal. She’s running herself ragged between her suddenly perfect life and her nighttimes spent frantically fighting witches. Her power is barriers, clear glass things, like the Invisible Woman. She’s figured out how to weaponize it, but it’s difficult. Her uniform looks like a fancy school uniform with kind of transparent glassy bits. Normal.

Obviously she is all set to crumble to despair. She just needs a push…

Helena’s wish is a mystery to everyone, but: she wished for the strength to defeat those who used their powers to hurt those weaker than themselves. Does that make sense? I think it’s incoherent. The point is that she used this power to get rid of her abusive foster father, Tomas. Anyways, at some point she figured out that all magical girls are doomed to be witches and now her holy mission is to destroy all magical girls before they hurt others.

Her wish gave her strength, and so she doesn’t have weapons; she fights with her bare hands, although she’s stolen and learned to use sniper rifles, pistols, and knives. Her costume is a big wolf-hood, like a berserker.

Rachel wished for power. More specifics for another time, I suppose. She fights with a scepter that separates into twin blades. Her costume is all purple, like a queen, and has a big flared collar. Totally badass.

I constantly hear that characters come alive when you're writing, and that they are the ones who end up taking the lead of the story and most of the times you don't realize that they're taking you where THEY want. But... that doesn't happen to me? And I'm kinda worried because I don't experience that, and it's supposed to be something great because it means they're well developed and such. I don't know, any advice? (thank you)

Hello there, writerly friend~ ♥︎

I know where you are coming from. Right now, before the story even begins— I can feel this certain pull when I think about my characters. it’s a strange sense of certainty, like the light of a torch inside of a dark tunnel. I don’t know where i am going, but I trust that the characters will take me there… and they always do.

The thing is, I didn’t start like this.

Back when I first started writing, I used to roll my eyes at the writers who claimed that they had no control over the story.

"Of course you have control! You are the one writing the story, just change what they say," Young Max said, rolling his eyes so hard they nearly fell out of their sockets.

It took me a while to understand that, (first off) all writers are different, but also that there seemed to be this unspoken truth that most writers had no control. It took me a long while to understand that. I used to plot like crazy. I used to think that I was the movie director, telling the actors what to do and shouting ‘CUT!’ when they screwed up a line.

Over time, though, I realized that I was not the director… but merely the camera-man. I am not calling the shots, I just show up every day at the same time, and the actors follow up on the script given to them by someone I have never met. Sure, sometimes I get a feeling for where things are going— but at the end of the day I am just the guy with the camera.

Now, I know what you must be thinking:

"Great, Max is going to tell me that I have to write, and practice, and wait until I am good enough to be able to ‘feel’ that pull or whatever he talked about,” said the Strawman, throwing his arms in the air like he truly did not care.

Nope. Although I think time and practice played a great part in this— I can tell you that the most important factor in learning to trust my characters was to…

It’s time for my catchphrase, everybody, at the count of 1-2-3:

GET OUT OF THE WAY OF THE STORY.

Seriously. The most important lesson is to learn to step aside and let the story go. You are the person with the camera. Your job is to record what is going on. Nothing else. Nothing more. You want your characters to shine? You want your characters to grow before your eyes? Get out of the way of the story. I want you to picture a movie set where the camera-man started yelling at the actors:

  • "I am just not sure if anyone is going to take this story seriously."
  • "I feel like this story has been told before."
  • "I worry what people will think of me if they read this story."

I don’t know about you, but I would get a little fed up if my camera-man kept interrupting me in the middle of a scene.

Here’s what I want you to do, okay? I want you to keep writing. I want you to step aside and write. Go with the flow. Learn to trust your characters. You want them to behave like people? Then treat them like people. Simple as that c;

I hope this helps! If you, or any other writerly friends, have any questions, then make sure to send them my way.

Keep writing, writerly friend~ ♥︎

Female pilots edited out of the Star Wars movies.

I saw the tweets about this today, and I was like oh yeah, I remember hearing about that.

And then I saw the pictures and just— wow. What it would have meant to have these women in the movie, all this time. I can’t properly articulate it but it’s hitting me unexpectedly hard.

Wow thats a shame, even a nice old lady too.  These Space Valkyries  should have been left in.

They really should have.

ADSVFISIDCNCIDSVHIUEFUHFIDHuvririahfuwvrui4m8ywmu36 8hthfahuiharahfiargnihiurhurhaigoznifrbogirifrbgorbzo154+849848e54645w8va0

WHAT.

THE.

FUCK.

I lived, ate, and breathed Star Wars from age 2 until 2005 when RotS finally beat the enthusiasm out of me, and I have NEVER, EVER in all my reading on behind-the-scenes and makings-of heard of these shots. It’s a shame there was no relaunched edit of the original trilogy they could have slipped these in OH FUCKING WAIT THERE’S BEEN LIKE 3 OF THOSE NOW.

Fuck. FUCK. Whoever decided to edit out and bury these needs to french kiss an angle grinder.

I want to see the old lady in the A-Wing. Seriously, it’s like, she’s somebody’s grandma. Some kid in the Outer Rim Territories got greased by the Empire for seeing something she wasn’t supposed to see, and her grandma, the bush pilot, decided “Fuck this, I’m gonna strap on an fighter and make the Empire fucking PAY for the moment it decided to fuck with MY FAMILY.”

DON’T. MESS. WITH. GRANDMA.

These are quickly being put into the “always reblog” category.

Whenever there is a war, there are women who are warriors. Then they get erased from history. Happens in real wars and fictional ones alike.

All the Rebel Valkyrie fic plz.

This is the most disappointing Star Wars reveal since the prequels.
