Preview: “I just don’t get it, Pabu,” mumbled Bolin into his pillow as he heard Korra giggle from down below again. “How is it that a nice guy like me, despite being nothing but charming and pleasant, always ends up alone while she ends up with someone else?” He buried his face deeper into his pillow, trying to shut out his sadness. “It hurts, Pabu…it hurts a lot.”

That’s right, my lovely followers. On June 6 of last year, I posted my first ever Avatar fanfiction story, “Avatar: The Last Airbender - Book 4: Air”, over on fanfiction.net, launching my career as a fanfiction writer for the Avatar fanchise.
And here I sit, one year later, with 50 stories to my name.
I gotta tell ya, folks, I never thought I’d get this far as a writer. Writing fanfiction for both Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra has been an absolute blast for me, and I enjoyed every single minute of it.
I’d like to give everyone out there who has ever read and loved my stories a huge “Thank you” from the bottom of my heart. :) The praise I’ve gotten from so many wonderful people in this fandom has kept me going as a writer, aspiring to write the best fanfiction I can for arguably two of the greatest shows to ever air on television.
Stay flamin’, everyone. ;D
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again:
You are supposed to use “said” consistently. It is one of those words you are allowed (and encouraged) to repeat.
Why, you ask? Because your dialogue is supposed to speak for itself. What your character says should tell us the tone of the words, rendering most of the words listed above unnecessary.
Flipping through a copy of American Gods by Neil Gaiman: most dialogue is tagged with “said” or its interrogatory counterpart, “asked.”
What happens when you consistently avoid using the word “said” is that your readers will be focusing on the dialogue’s tags rather than the dialogue itself, which kinda defeats the purpose of dialogue. Seriously, imagine reading a book, and you’re reading an exchange of dialogue, and words like “upbraided” and “opined” kept cropping up.
Get my meaning?
There are exceptions, there always are, but I just hate that people feel like it’s some great sin to use the word “said.” No, it’s not, so stop it.
Prompt: Because Episode 8 left me emotionally vulnerable because of its insanity and because of the massive amount of feels that I have about Korra. T_T
Summary: Even with all her powers as the Avatar, Korra felt weak and useless. Her defeat at the hands of the corrupted Councilman Tarrlok was proof of her shameful failure. Now she sits in her lonely prison cell, scarred and injured, cold and alone. Korra contemplates on her failure as the Avatar she was supposed to be, shedding tears that no one will ever see.

A/N: Be warned: this will most likely make you cry. Also, Korra crying is the number one way of breaking my heart and making me sob on the floor like a huge baby. Prepare thy Tearbending skills, for they shall be needed.
