    Hello there, dear anon!

    No worries, the Writing Doctor is here. I have just the thing for you~ ♥︎ Recently I answered an ask similar to yours, but I feel that you will need a more personalized treatment.

    I’ve just gotten off the phone with our local Motivationologist and she confirmed that, yes, you have a premature strain of ‘No Funsies.’ No Worries, it’s totally treatable. ‘No Funsies’ is a very common disease, it occurs on artists because of various reasons, though primarily because of: fear of judgement, and doubt of one’s talent.

    You said you have ideas? Perfect! That will make it easier. First off, I want you to take a full dose of My (Strange) Guide to Planning Your Story. I want you to start a new project. You’re not allowed to second-guess yourself, or share it with anyone (for the time being). You will be writing something for yourself— not only that, though, you will be writing something fun. F-U-N. Again, follow the steps on the guide c;

    Now, the general treatment for No Funsies is 1000 words a day, but I have a feeling that you may not be ready for that commitment. How about you go for 500 words a day? It’s a good middle ground. In the case of an emergency you’re allowed to skip one day a week, but no more than that.

    'No Funsies' attacks the motivational gland in your brain. It mutates fun cells into work cells, and suddenly everything you do feels like… well, work. Of course, art should not feel like work, it should be fun! Starting a new fun project and focusing on the F-U-N is the name of the game. If you follow the 500 words/day treatment you will undo the effects of No Funsies.

    Of course, No Funsies does not go down without a fight. The first few days may be hard. That’s why I have a few additional meds for you right here, take them if you feel at a loss:

    • FUNSIEAWAY-B (If you feel overwhelmed with starting this new project. One application should be enough)
    • MO-TIVANOL (If you wish to regain motivation on your project, but ONLY once you’ve followed the guide. Take as often as you need)
    • STUCKKADE (If you find yourself stuck with first sentences. Apply  to the beginning of chapters as needed)
    • 20MG OF MCMILLENITE (If you feel that your writing is not good enough. One application should do the trick)
    • WRITER POSITIVITY (A free daily supplement if you feel unmotivated to write c;)
    • REALITYCHECXIA (This a very potent motivational+inspirational drug. Take it only if you feel like you’ve hit rock bottom :c)

    I want you to follow this treatment for two weeks, okay? I have setup the appointment, so let me know how it goes. Now take this blue sheet to the lady at the pharmacy~ ♥︎

"Honestly, it’s quite astonishing how much misery this movie manages to pack into two hours of mostly action sequences and espionage subplots, particularly since Captain America is supposedly one of the “lighter” superheroes, compared to the unending grimdarkness of Batman. I guess this is the difference between “manpain” and “a man in legitimate emotional pain.”"

Confession: I was under-prepared for the battle with the slavers, but on my FIFTEENTH try I actually came close to winning, when Zevran and a soldier killed each other AT THE EXACT SAME TIME. Right before he fell, Zevran said “Oh, you can’t be serious!” I was laughing so hard at that I had tears in my eyes.

Finally it’s starting to look like Shale!! I think I can call it ready now. Might add some lights later though.

Confession: Every time Zevran says “I am yours” my heart melts and then breaks because I feel I will never hear those words spoken to me in real life.

Gosh. I wouldn’t ordinarily respond to something like this, but today I feel compelled. So sue me.

To the OP: I’m glad you enjoyed Zevran. Of the four romances in DAO, he’s the least popular— but I’ve always liked to believe that people who chose to scratch beneath the surface are rewarded. You can either judge him on a superficial basis, and Zevran himself would expect that from nearly everyone, or you can figure out why he is who he is and put him in a position where he’s forced to admit he has real feelings.

To the second sentiment, though… what can you say that doesn’t sound like “hang in there, champ?” Love’s a funny thing. Sometimes it will come along when you least expect it, even after you’ve given up all hope and even stopped looking. If anything, take it from Zevran himself: he not only thought himself undeserving of love, he thought himself incapable. His was a life resigned to shallow encounters and jobs to be completed, and true to form he made the best of the hand dealt to him… until the Warden comes along. Quite unexpectedly.

I’m sure not everyone needs to become a contract assassin to “put themselves out there”, so to speak, but perhaps the lesson is that it’s not necessarily too late for anyone.

…okay, yes. I’m a romantic dork at heart. I wouldn’t do what I do for a living if that weren’t true.

#yet I also love tears #the eternal conundrum

Happy tears are pretty good to get too, Ser. :)
