I got this from a friend who was reading majority of the Elsword forums.

I’m never taking it off
Me: “What browser are you on?”
Me: “Google Chrome?”
Client: “No, just regular Google.”
Me: “That’s the site. I want to know the browser.”
Client: “Look, we can have this conversation forever, man. But when I hit the internet logo, Google comes up!”
Me: “Okay…What does that “internet logo” look like?
Client: “…A fiery fox, I guess. But that’s irrelevant.”
even the way he unbuttons his jacket is hot
And it’s actually a proof of his excellent education. A man is expected to open his jacket when he sits down and to close his jacket when he gets up. Well done!
Misha Collins, ladies and gentlemen.
“what is this.. pain in my chest?”

If you claim to be a feminist and you shame girls for wanting to do traditional things like take their husband’s last name or be a house wife then you are doing it all completely wrong.
Feminism isn’t an elite group who defeats gender norms, it’s a group who accepts ALL women’s choices.
FUN FACT, I used to really favor a more descriptive style! This was… wow, over 6 years ago now, but I think what inspired the change was this sudden feeling that my words were impairing the storytelling. It was a really strong resistance— like they were bogging down expression and trying too hard to evoke emotion, etc. I still feel that way about a lot of flowery writing, there’s very little of it that I like: this is just my opinion, but i think it really takes the focus off of the story and onto the writing itself. That’s just… not what I want out of writing, to be honest.
I’ve found that really trying to focus on economy and make the most out of my words has improved my writing, so I stick to it. What’s made me start to try and incorporate a bit more of my older style into my work - introspection, poetry - was something Tom Perrotta said to me a few years ago. He’s written a few screen adaptations of his books, and he said that doing so made him appreciate the freedom he had on the page more, and it reflected in his later works. So I’m trying to work description back in, but never really in excess— I think that one good sentence stands out a lot more and rings a lot more true if it’s surrounded by others that simply have a story to tell you.
And that’s something, too: so much of how I write is story based. It’s not how I say it, but what happens, that matters most to me. Like, I try to build the sentences so that they best express what happens and best help the reader react to what’s happening and feel the emotions that the characters are. Lots of people work the other way — the action is secondary — but at this point I’ve done too much script writing for me to set aside action showing the internal for a more cerebral style— I just don’t think it’s anywhere close to as good as;dkjsa;kf. People say so much with how they move, what they don’t say, with shit they do and shit they ignore— What’s more powerful? Four paragraphs of Sherlock’s confused internal monologue regarding his anger and pain and regret at John getting married, or a shot of him looking longingly at John’s empty chair? Him moving it out of the living room entirely? It’s like that idiom, “Actions speak louder than words.”
This is probably way more than you were prepared for when you asked this question, and I’m not sure how well I expressed myself alsfja;sf;jlakf.
Happy birthday, Harry James Potter! July 31, 1980
You know, Nat has naturally red hair.
And she likes the snow, but she loves the rain.
She likes to lay in bed on rainy mornings.
She has this spot on the back of her neck she likes me to rub.
And she particularly enjoys candle light.
And she likes to dance, but not when anyone is watching.
And when she is feeling tired and down, she likes to lay her head in my lap.
And she sings Russian songs, and I don’t understand them but I still love to listen.
I have been working on it for a while… finally finished it up today.
Now back to commissions!
