There is a reason that most fanfiction authors, specifically girls, start with a Mary Sue. It’s because girls are taught that they are never enough. You can’t be too loud, too quiet, too smart, too stupid. You can’t ask too many questions or know too many answers. No one is flocking to you for advice. Then something wonderful happens. The girl who was told she’s stupid finds out that she can be a better wizard than Albus Dumbledore. And that is something very important. Terrible at sports? You’re a warrior who does backflips and Legolas thinks you’re THE BEST. No friends? You get a standing ovation from Han Solo and the entire Rebel Alliance when you crash-land safely on Hoth after blowing up the Super Double Death Star. It’s all about you. Everyone in your favorite universe is TOTALLY ALL ABOUT YOU.
I started writing fanfiction the way most girls did, by re-inventing themselves.
Mary Sues exist because children who are told they’re nothing want to be everything.
Don’T EVEN GET ME STARTED. You don’t even know what you’ve just unleashed (⊙_⊙)
okay so Ed is like Tony Stark basically with a litTLE bit less of a complex. no who am I kidding, he’s still got the complex. mom died when he was young, father left, etc— same as FMA canon. he and Al managed the company and we’re basically child geniuses and invented a bunch a stuff that was awesome (with help of their childhood friend Winry). so that happens.
Al’s kidnapped. Ed tries to be the hero and rescue him by himself. Ends up getting himself blown up and Al put in a coma. Ed loses two limbs, Al’s in a coma, Winry makes prosthetics for Ed who is really upset about Al.
so basically he designs a computer program that’ll download Al’s memories and thoughts and keep them stored away and Al basically becomes JARVIS, with a whole personality and thoughts and everything all thrown into computer program that takes the form of a tiny little. floating android thingie which homes back to the arm Winry made for him.
which is super cool and it’s basically like Al’s thoughts and memories and everything are there, but just. his body isn’t. because that’s in a hospital. anyways. they take it a step further, and make a similar-to-iron-man-suit built around the prosthetics, except instead of Iron Man, people call him Fullmetal.
I have that one thought out a lot more than all the other ones tbh.
Roy is Captain Amestris because it’s a thing that needs to be done. Hughes was his Bucky but Hughes uhm. Well he died. He died hard and it was Captain Amestris’ fault. So that’s a thing that he laments about for a long long time though I’m not 100% sure that Roy’s story involves the whole “World’s Longest Nap” thing.
Hawkeye is. Hawkeye because let’s be real here, they’re the same thing they even have the same name it’s just Clint has arrows. Except Hawkeye is Hawkeye if Hawkeye (confusing much?) actually had his shit together so ACTUALLY I think what’s going on here is Riza is like if Hawkeye and Natasha were merged together. So she’s probably also a spy with the super awesome ass kicking abilities but she just so happens to be very good with a bow and arrows too.
Homunculi may or may not be by products of energy experiments that Ed and Al did earlier, so that’s… Interesting.
I’m sorry but like. Alfons can’t do shit physically so he probably just engineers stuff for them because he’s a super genius. In the AU I’m writing with this he actually has wings but that’s a personal. thing. moreso than it is an actual MCU thing. I just like winged!Alfons.
Uh. Jean Havoc would be Peter Quill tho. Like you can’t really convince me otherwise, sorry. :’D It just kind of works for him.
I’m doing a Philosophy paper on Asexuality. Please reblog if you think Love without Sex is possible! I really need the data. Like if you think love has to have sex.
(ps. I’m also posting something similar to Aven on Monday. Also, please only like or reblog, not both. Also using this as a very very loose guide-line, stop getting your panties in a twist, it’s not going to be my only source)
Hooray for asexuality!
This is the sort of nonsense up with which I will not put.
Act 1 in a musical: Humor and upbeat songs, colorful characters. Laughter all around.
Act 2 in a musical: EVERYTHING FALLS TO SHIT. PEOPLE ARE DYING. HEARTS ARE BREAKING. ABORT THE THEATRE.
