STORY SNIPPET TWO!

So some of you seemed to like the last story snippet and to let you all know... It was from a horror story! Good job to all who attempted to guess! Now here is another story to try and analyze.

This is another HOOMAN story. Just to clarify


 The man looked around, “Listen, I can’t explain right now… Just go.” He gently pushed her forward and she fell into the hole.

“AHHHHHHH!!!” She screamed as she dropped down the hole. She winced as she hit the bottom. “OW!” She looked around, and was amazed. She had fallen into a room, a room that looked like one of the underground bunkers that the military used to use as a base of operations

A young man with jet black hair and blue eyes walked up to her and extended his hand to help her up, “You okay?” 

Michelle took his hand and he pulled her up, “Yeah…” She shook his hand, “I’m Michelle…”

The young man smiled, “Michelle Skinner, Oh yeah, been expecting you! My name is Wyatt.”

Michelle froze, “How do you know my name? What do you mean you’ve been expecting me? Where the heck am I?”

“Well, Skinner…” She jumped as the man came up behind her. “You’re in the Underground.”

Michelle’s eyes widened, “No way… This is the Underground!?” She turned to the man, “Then who are you?”

The man smirked and extended his hand, “General William Hayes, at your service.”

Michelle’s eyes widened and her jaw dropped, “Wha... You… Oh my gosh!”

Wyatt grinned, “Yeah, I did that too!”

The general snickered, “Yeah for some reason my name is pretty popular right now… Still, I usually go recruit new soldiers myself. That way I don’t have to risk anyone, but myself.”

“Wait, What? Are you…” Michelle’s face was a mix between surprised and freaked out.

The general’s smirk widened, “Yes, Private Skinner. When I say you are in the Underground, I mean it in more ways than one.”

Michelle was too stunned to say anything.

The general turned to Wyatt, “Go ahead and take her to the tech room to get measured for a uniform. Then… Maybe you could show her around.” He winked.

Wyatt blushed as he led Michelle away to the tech room.

The general watched them walk away with a smirk, then left to attend to some other business.

STORY SNIPPET ONE.

WHO'S READY TO PLAY... GUESS THAT GENRE!

Hello Scribbly friends. :) Welcome to a new thing I will be doing over these next few weeks. The way this will work is I will post a story snippet for you to read on this blog every few days, and I will give you the viewer a chance to see if you can figure out what the genre of the story is. Some of you will know, others may not. But that's all in good fun. ^-^ And for an added bonus, you can try t explain your reasoning as to why you made your choice in the comments. Are you ready? Because here is Snippet #1


             A lonely red Subaru drove down the dusty highway, the two people inside were as quiet as the highway outside. The driver, Caroline Benson, gave her husband a side glance. He avoided her glance by keeping his eyes facing the window.

            She cleared her throat. “So when are we going to talk about this, Ben.”

            Ben kept his mouth shut, continuing to keep his eyes on the passing desert.

            Caroline forced out a laugh. “Oh that's right. We only ever talk about our issues if they are bothering you.” She shook her head. “That stunt you pulled in front of my parents was not necessary.”

            Ben turned to look at his wife. “I was being truthful!”

            “When they asked if we were thinking about kids, you made a huge show of leaving the room.” Caroline snapped.

            Ben put his face in his hands. “They ask us everytime, and to be honest it is annoying!”

            “They want to be grandparents, Ben! Can you really blame them for bringing it up?”

            “Yes. I can. They have been doing it for the last three years! And plus, I don't think they like me.”

            Caroline let out a genuine laugh. “Gee, I wonder why.”

            Ben crossed his arms. “Do you want me to apologize?”

            Caroline sighed, “You can. I am pretty sure I am not the only one you owe an apology to.”

            Ben looked back out the window. “I know… And I really am sorry…”

            Caroline glanced at him again, and reached over to grab his hand. “I know… And I do forgive you. But we really do need to talk about maybe having kids.”

            Ben cringed a little. “Kids… I have never liked them… They are loud, and quite annoying.”

            Caroline chuckled a little. “From what your parents have told me, you were not exactly an angel  as a kid. So that's pretty hypocritical.”


            Ben looked back at her. “Fine. You win this...”





So what kinda story do think it's from? HORROR? ROMANCE? ACTION?
GO PICK!

5 things you shouldn't do in A Romantic Comedy/Romance Movie!

Romantic movies are one of my guilty pleasures. Everything is so corny and a tad unrealistic. And that's fine. After all, it is a movie. Not everything in romantic comedies needs to be too realistic, but let's be real. Romantic Comedies sometimes have characters that do really dumb and out there things to get the girl/guy. Yet somehow, with movie magic I suppose, these characters still manage to succeed in their mission after everything.

Do not do those things. Those tactics don't work in life. What tactics you say?

I am glad you asked. Here are five things you should not do in a romantic comedy.


DON'T GET WITH SOMEONE ELSE TO MAKE YOUR CRUSH JEALOUS.

It astounds me that this actually works in the movies because it is SO WRONG. If you want to get a girl's attention and decide to pretend to be in a relationship with another girl (or guy), YOUR CRUSH WILL NOTICE. They will notice and will most likely get jealous. (Or they'll just move on with their lives. Not every crush automatically is smitten for you. Sorry.)

But here's the thing, usually in movies after the girl or guy is all angry and upset at the main character and listens to an explanation, they immediately let it go. But real life is not that simple. If you go and try to make someone so jealous so they'll love you, they will fight back. Either that or they won't be jealous, because they probably don't have feelings for you.

But seriously, when someone is jealous they aren't just sad and remorseful. They are angry. And if you come apologizing and explaining how you were just trying to make them jealous, you will probably just get a well-deserved slap to the face.

Besides, no one likes to be jealous.

IF YOU ARE IN A COMMITTED RELATIONSHIP DO NOT SPEND PERSONAL TIME ALONE WITH ANOTHER MAN/WOMAN.

This really should be self-explanatory here, but if you are in love with a man/woman you really shouldn't do things alone with said man/woman. Even if it's a friend from high school. Because whether there is romantic tension or not... as the movies go, Someone in real life will see it and lucky for you, they just happen to go tell your crush everything!

While explanations may not be as dramatically met here (As long as the person really is just an old friend. (CHEATING IS BAD)), there will still be a little bit of a mess to clean up. Because as I said, humans get jealous.

Now to the point where movies mess it up big time. A lot of times in romantic comedies and old friend ends up being a lot more. Now in the movies, a simple romantic gesture and an apology seem to be enough to get your crush to love you again after you cheat on them BUT COME ON!!!!

Human beings aren't always that quick to forgive, especially for something as big as hearing about you romantically involved with another person. Maybe forgiveness may come one day, but that relationship would be shattered. You broke your significant other's trust and faith. There are deep consequences for your actions.

So yeah. This one is important for movies and real life.

DON'T GO OUT WITH THE ONE WHO HAS A REPUTATION FOR BREAKING HEARTS.

We all know the one character in the movies that everyone is head over heels for, and seems like the perfect guy/girl. The one who seems like they are the romantic interest of the movie. The one who can't seem to keep the same girl/guy around for longer than a month... Wait what?

Chances are this dude/lady likes to play the field. They aren't looking for any commitment or relationship, they just want a trophy to display to friends and family.

But the main character doesn't seem to care or notice that, and what do they do? Start a romance of course! It's a romance. What did you expect?

I really have one simple reason to why, in real life, you shouldn't date someone like this. SELF RESPECT. You are an individual who deserves someone who actually cares about you and won't drop you for the next hot tamale they see. Don't be a cliche romantic movie character.

DON'T CHASE AFTER SOMEONE WHO IS HAPPILY IN A RELATIONSHIP.

Romances sometimes pull a story where the romantic interest is already in a relationship with another person. And most of the time, the movie presents this other person as literal trash that you hope gets dumped by the end of the movie. Leaving the main character to get with the romantic interest. Yes, this is sometimes a nice story. But life is different.

In real life, a couple like that may be completely happy with each other. Maybe the significant other is just not exactly a very nice person to people outside his/her friend group. But a person like you really doesn't have to right to go after another person's girlfriend or boyfriend. Just because you like someone, doesn't give you the right to be with them. Get over yourself.

Also, while I am on this topic

DON'T TRY TO GET BETWEEN A HAPPY COUPLE AND TRY TO DESTROY THEIR RELATIONSHIP.

There are a few movies out there where the main character's squad tries to help the main character get the girl. Of course... sometimes there is a person in the way. So what would be the logical thing to do? Do everything you can to destroy their relationship of course.

WRONG. Whether you think a relationship is abusive or you think your crush and their significant other aren't compatible, you don't try to sabotage their relationship. Because in the end if it does by some miracle work, you look like a complete jerk; and if you don't YOU STILL END UP LONELY.



So maybe... the lesson here is to not look to romantic movies as advice for your love life. Maybe you should start by being a friend. That's how a lot of relationships start. Friendship. Maybe one day, one month, or one year down the road you might find yourself falling for someone close to you. Nothing crazy needs to happen, just relax.  Or you know... except the fact that you will probably be lonely for the rest of your life.

Hey everyone! It's Vinnie/Scribbles/That guy who used to regularly use this blog.

After a long break where I was taking care of some things like work or college, I am ready to start writing blog posts again. Might even have some youtube videos in the works. Sadly I will not be posting as often as I used to, maybe once or twice a month. I am still a bit busy and working on  writing/trying to become employed again.

But it will be nice to get back on and just get to share things with you all that I am excited about. Like more story snippets and maybe (Maybe in November) starting up some character interviews again.

Anyway, welcome back! Hoping to have something up within the week. If you have some suggestions of what you want to see, comment them below. LOVE YOU ALL. OKAY BYE

NERDY OBSESSIONS: DCTV/EU

Yes. As I promised. I am back. Nerdy Obsessions are here. I have a lot to talk about. Just a fair warning, I am not caught up on either of these. So I have been doing research and will be making this post based on appearance and picture alone. And some premise but that doesn't MATTER. DON'T JUDGE ME. STAHP

The new Teen Titans themed show known as Titans will be launching in 2018 with Brenton Thwaites in the main roll of Dick Grayson. (Probably as Nightwing) And even more cool is all those cast choices I showed you in October/September, they are the actual cast. That has been verified!

Wow. Guess there isn't much news for that :/ Well darn. I hope this isn't the case for the other shows...
;) Spoiler alert: IT ISN'T. New characters have joined the roster of these shows, with some noteable ones including Elongated Man (Detective like funny guys from the comics who solves mysteries with his wife), ZARI ADRIANA TOMAZ (who could be Black Adam's wife Isis. I don't know for sure), and DANNY FRICKIN TREJO. ON THE FLASH. OKAY GUYS STAY CALM. LOOK AT ME BEING CALM. O_O

We also have an infamous crossover which sees the return of some familiar faces to face a Nazi parallel earth. Oh my. This crossover is going to be hard to piece apart seeing as how I haven't seen it. But the one detail that makes me nervous is the fact of Barry and Iris's wedding.

THIS IS A SPOILER FOR THE COMICS.
The first time we see Barry and Iris ready to get married, ONE OF HIS ENEMIES KILLS HER. This event is setting up for one of the only Season 1 flashback scenes we haven't seen yet. Prison Barry. Don't worry, I am 94% sure that wasn't in the crossover. We do see some cool stuff like more alternate characters Heroes and Villians. Should be a fun ride. Here are some promo shots!


This is a pretty much almost full roster with the exception of Firestorm and others. But alot of each shows main cast is in this crossover. It is serious. Also surprise! LOOK ITS WENTWORTH MILLER IN COLD COSTUME! And Gold mask is The Ray! :D And the one next to Vixen in the woman I think is Isis that I mentioned earlier. I am probably wrong though because it looks nothing like her. Also that is Diggle hiding behind Ollie in that picture. Clarifying that for you guys... Definitely not for me O____O

Now onto Black Lightning. It is not on air yet, but it still looks like it is gonna be good.
There have been several teasers for it as of recently. Links below!

We see him in suit and in action. That is some good fighting after being  out of the game for so long. Bravo Mr. Pierce. Bravo!

This is all I have for today. Sorry it is so choppy and stuff, but I am doing this on a whim. Have a great day!

The Return?

Hey all. It's me, Scribbles.
*crickets*

 Oh yeah... I haven't posted in a month. Anyone still out there? *knocks*

Anyway, been a particularly busy month with work and stuff. NaNoWriMo has been taking a little of my time :) But the main thing that I wanted to talk about is the future of this blog. I probably will not be able to post any things for another week or so, and I might start up the character interviews then.

But since my book is coming out THIS UPCOMING SATURDAY WHICH IS DECEMBER 2ND. Not today though. Otherwise I would be unprepared. I would be honored if you guys would share my posts/tweets, so we can all excitedly count the days together. I may try to do like something. I have no clue, too excited tbh!

Meanwhile expect a huge Nerdy Obsessions post in the middle of December because I have a lot to geek about! :3

In the mean time. Love you all! PEACE OUT!
