So far, the worst of it involved passing a gaggle of lively teenage girls, and one exclaimed, “What a silver fox!” Otherwise, strangers will generally categorize me as a mutant, and not as an octogenarian.

agentchurch said: Wow, the both anger and the begrudging respect between the 3 could destroy worlds.

The respect towards Texas is nowhere near begrudging from Locus, but Felix and Tex do tend to butt heads from time to time, yes.

Honestly I just seeing them fighting with money constantly and debating on who would do what for the lowest price.

It’s actually more practical than you’d think.
Felix is a big spender, but Felix also takes very good care of money and things that cost money. So when Felix spends, it’s on high-quality shit that’ll last and work the best. That’s not just luxury, that’s common sense. The TV the size of a billboard isn’t just about size, it’s contrast, quality of the screen, what packages come with it for cable and satellite or what have you - it’ll be the whole damn package.
Buuuuut, as said, this is /insanely expensive/ and Tex isn’t so much frugal as she is a bit of a money hoarder. She’ll go for cheaper if it means still having a pile of money to roll around in at the end of the day. Felix spends money to make money. Texas makes money and keeps it around like a dragon with it’s hoard.
Locus just wants enough money to live on. He’s usually on Texas’ side when she and Felix fight. He’ll mention getting the cheaper one because it still has good reviews and it’s not a necessity, Felix, stop whining like a child.
Felix whines more because Felix DOES ’ /WANT/ THE CHEAPER ONE, FELIX WANTS /THAT/ ONE, YOU ALWAYS TAKE HER SIDE YOU LIKE HER BETTER THAN ME.

That is, all things being equal, Locus /does/ like Texas more than Felix, but that wasn’t the origional point and Felix knows it and only Felix can go from being practical and conscious of spending to a whining, insufferable brat in five seconds.

On Writing: Secondary Characters

readingwithavengeance:

Secondary (and tertiary and further) characters are every bit as important as your main character.  Where the main character has to be the vehicle for her or his personal story — and more often than not it’s a story of exceptions — the secondary characters are going to carry your world.  By having a wide and diverse cast of bit characters, you show your world as being rich and fully-formed.  Characters will accomplish this impression of a ‘full world’ far more evocatively than any amount of trivia you might come up with.  But, seeing as secondary characters by nature get less page-time than main characters, it can sometimes be hard to really express them as being vivid and fully-developed.

  • Less is more - It feels hard to give your secondary characters as much development as your main characters because it is hard.  It’s nigh-on impossible.  And frankly, books that try it run the risk of getting too cluttered.  So don’t.  While your characters should be fully-formed to you, the audience should only get glimpses of them when they’re on the page.  If they have their own character arc but we only get to see the start and the end of it, that’s fine.  The impression that they’ve got off-page stuff we don’t get to see is going to make them feel more real anyway.

Writing Research - Ancient Rome

ghostflowerdreams:

Ancient Rome was an Italic civilization that began on the Italian Peninsula as early as the 8th century BC. Located along the Mediterranean Sea and centered on the city of Rome, it expanded to become one of the largest empires in the ancient world with an estimated 50 to 90 million inhabitants (roughly 20% of the world’s population) and covering 6.5 million square kilometers (2.5 million sq mi) during its height between the first and second centuries AD.

In its approximately 12 centuries of existence, Roman civilization shifted from a monarchy to a classical republic to an increasingly autocratic empire. Through conquest and assimilation, it came to dominate Southern and Western Europe, Asia Minor, North Africa, and parts of Northern and Eastern Europe, Rome was preponderant throughout the Mediterranean region and was one of the most powerful entities of the ancient world. It is often grouped into “Classical Antiquity” together with ancient Greece, and their similar cultures and societies are known as the Greco-Roman world. [x]
