Yo. My name is Sage and this is my brand spanking new writing blog! I do a lot of writing, but its mostly just fanfiction (send me an ask and I'll link you to my ff or ao3 account). I also have some original pieces though, and I enjoy poetry as well. So have fun, please don't steal my work, and never be afraid to as me a question about the blog! (Or..well, anything. I'm a talkative person I can guarantee you'll get a response even if your message says nothing but 'hi'.)

❝ That kink meme fic is definitely your best work :O! Would you please write a fic for Pariston and Ging? ❞

Omigod. Oh my god. I honestly don’t know if I can write that holy shit. Like…I ship them? And I like them, but in a ‘wow these two are total trash they’d be twice the amount of trash together’ kinda way. But I guess it could be a fun challenge??

Ahhh I’ll add it to the request list and we’ll see if I’m able to accomplish it.

100 Beautiful and Ugly Words

by Mark Nichol

One of the many fascinating features of our language is how often words with pleasant associations are also quite pleasing on the tongue and even to the eye, and how many words, by contrast, acoustically and visually corroborate their disagreeable nature — look no further than the heading for this post.
Enrich the poetry of your prose by applying words that provide precise connotation while also evoking emotional responses

Notice how often attractive words present themselves to define other beautiful ones, and note also how many of them are interrelated, and what kind of sensations, impressions, and emotions they have in common. Also, try enunciating beautiful words as if they were ugly, or vice versa. Are their sounds suggestive of their quality, or does their meaning wholly determine their effect on us?
