i can’t tell you how many times i’ve spoken up about harassment only to be told to “learn to take a compliment”.  

since when do “compliments” intrude on my space?  what kind of “compliment” makes a person feel unsafe or threatened?

harassment isn’t a compliment.  know the difference.

————————-

My first digital painting was « The Samurai » in late 2011, « RED NIGHT » it’s an attempt to see my progress since then. I wanted to keep it simple ( no big sword, power up etc..) and try some thing new  ( sci-fi theme)

 Hope you guys like it =)

Inspired by @carriehopefletcher - my list of things that make me happy.

Hurme means blood, it’s not a common word. Veri is used mostly when talking about blood in general. But some positive and even romantic words have a bit hurme-blood in them:

Hurmaava - Charming, enchanting
Hurmata - To seduce, charm

It could have been that back in the days Finns described the feeling of love literally to cause blood rushing and blushing… Which is quite cute.

So I know that love triangles, when written properly, could probably be a big thing. I want to somehow do that, but I'd like some tips on what to avoid and what better than to get that advice from you?

So…love triangles. They are a bit like the glitter of stories. They can make it better, but usually they don’t, and they just won’t go away. Here are a few pieces of advice when it comes to writing love triangles.

Don’t make the end obvious. It’s really boring for the reader when they know from the beginning which of the characters the girl (and it’s almost always a girl) will end up with. I mean, I love Jace and Clary in Classandra Clare’s The Moral Instruments, but the thing in the beginning with Clary and Simon and Jace is barely a love triangle, because it is almost immediately obvious that she will end up with Jace. This is fairly common. Even if it isn’t that obvious, the reader can usually tell by about halfway who the person will end up with.

Don’t play the dark devil/light angel dichotomy. This wouldn’t be so bad if it weren’t so miserably common. Yes, it makes for an interesting story. The first time. The 500th time, not so much. You don’t need to make the two (guys) diametric opposites. Think about who the middle person would want to get together with. Would they want to get together with two people with totally opposite personalities? If so, you need to think long and hard about why.

They don’t need to end up with either of them. You can have a triangle where neither one of them is the right choice. That is allowed.

You can make it a real love triangle. A likes B likes C who likes A. You can have some reciprocal relationships, but you don’t need to.

Polyamory. That’s a possibility too.

Don’t make one of them the secret brother. Ugh. That’s such a cop-out. It pretty much keeps you from having to resolve the issue of picking who the person should get together with, which kind of defeats all of the tension of having a love triangle. And really don’t end it like Vampire Knight.

Make the reader like both of them. The love triangle is kind of pointless if the readers don’t want the person to get together with one (or both) of them. Make them likeable. Don’t just make them sexy.

It’s possible to write great love triangles. You essentially just need to look at it like you’re writing two romances at the same time. This is about the main character (assuming it’s the main character) falling in love with two people at the same time and then having to choice. That’s where the tension comes from. They truly love both of these people, and they need to choose one because not choosing will break everyone’s heart.

Sick of the USA ? Looking to become an expatriate and enjoy the low tax rate of Costa Rica or Belarus? Yeah, that’ll be $2,350, or five times what it used to be. In other words, they do their best to make it intolerable to live here, and then charge you thousands when you try to leave. Death and taxes. Death. And. Taxes.

The fee for individuals to renounce U.S. citizenship is jumping to $2,350 as of Sept. 12—more than five times the current charge of $450.

The U.S. State Department, in its explanation for the increase, said that documenting a renunciation is “extremely costly” and requires a minimum of two intensive interviews with the applicant as well as other procedures.

The fees charged for a number of other services, such as “fiance(e) visas” and employment-based visa applications,  increased far less than those for renunciation and in some cases declined.

The large increase in the renunciation fee comes at a time when record numbers of Americans living abroad are cutting ties with the U.S. Last year, 2,999 U.S. citizens and green-card holders renounced their allegiance to the U.S., a record number, and renunciations in 2014 are on track to exceed that. The State Department estimates that 7.6 million Americans live abroad.
