"Hi, I just found your blog and I was looking at it. And if you don't mind telling me. Where did you get your Amity necklace from?"

Asked by say-dee-baby

It’s not an actually amity necklace, but it works just the same right? ;) I got it from Ebay, just type in ‘tree’ or ‘peace tree necklace’ it should bring them up! Also, if you want more nifty stuff actually meant to be for the fandom of Divergent, check out Etsy! They’ve got some really great stuff! :)

I hate those late nights where all you do is think and by the end you feel like shit.

Rant time.

Okay, so this isn’t going to be…..pretty? ..but i just really really I need to say this.

Ps. This contains some spoilers.

So, like many of my lovely followers and people in this world…I LOVE reading; so much. This year alone I’ve read over 30 books. 

So naturally when my college demands that every student takes a fine arts class, I sign up for a creative writing class. 

I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into; but all I knew was that I loved reading and several times I’ve even attempted to write my own stories. Anywho, my professor was amazing (yup, friends with her on facebook) and she taught me one VERY IMPORTANT thing when it comes to creative writing.

Are you ready for this?

YOUR CHARACTER HAS TO BE THEIR OWN PERSON. 

YOU. (the author) CAN. NOT. CONTROL. THEM.

So, like me, you’re probably sitting there…if you’re even still reading this, being like whhhhaaaaa?!?! Yeah, it came to me as a shock; but every character is their own person.

They have their own thoughts, not your thoughts on what should happen in the story. Their own feelings, not what you WANT them to feel.

She gave us a great analogy when it came to creative writing: “Creative writing is like driving a car at night with only your head lights on; you can only see a little bit in front of you at a time and your main character is the driver. You both won’t know if there’s a sharp bend in the road or if there’s no road at all because of construction until they get there.”

So why am I ranting about this you ask? Well here’s the reason…

I am so sick of people criticizing/ complaining about “how said character was perfect and shouldn’t have died and they were so amazing and how mad they are that the author killed them off.” and more stupid bullshit like that.

Do you think that JK Rowling just woke up one day and was like, “Ya know what, I don’t feel like writing about Dumbledore anymore…I guess I’ll just kill him.” 

NO. 

Harry had learned all that he could from Dumbledore and it was time for Harry to grow up. Even Dumbledore knew that this was Harry’s battle, not his and tried to prepare him as best he could. 

Or how about this?

  1. Do you think Rowling wanted to kill practically everyone she took so long to develop over the first 6 books?
  2. Do you think that Suzanne Collins knew she was going to and wanted to kill Prim when she started writing the Hunger Games? 
  3. What about Veronica Roth…think she REALLY just wanted to kill Tris’ parents and have Tris be mentally scared for all of Insurgent for killing Will??? 

And those are only a few examples. Now, don’t get me wrong…I freaking balled like a baby when Dumbledore died and nearly threw Mockingjay when Prim died…but there was a reason why these authors did that. 

These authors aren’t just randomly having a morbid day and want to kill their characters that we all know and love. It is whats right for the story. 

So if you’re still reading this, next time you freak out about a character dying and yell and curse at the author and go on a rant on one of the fandom confession blogs. Really stop and think….or even google for all I care…why did said character die. 99.9% of the time there is a good reason.

Now, I’m not saying that you should totally just give up all of your opinions on a book/ series but to everyone who read this; please…stop complaining so much as to how your favorite character died and just love these books again. Remember how much entertainment they gave you; how they took you to a whole new world; how you stayed up late even if you had to get up the next morning because you were just that hooked. 

THESE BOOKS ARE PERFECT JUST THE WAY THEY ARE.

Family matter - “I don’t…” I sound like I am being strangled. “My family is all dead, or traitor; how can I…” I am not making any sense. The sobs take over my body, my mind, everything. He gathers me to him, and bathwater soaks my legs. His hold is tigh. I listen to his heartbeat and, after a while, find a way to let the rhythm calm me. “I’ll be your family now,” he says. “I love you,” I say. (…) I am his, and he is mine, and it has been that way all along. He stares at me. I wait with my hands clutching his arms for stability as he considers his responde. He frowns at me. “Say it again.” “Tobias,” I say, “I love you.” His skin is slippery with water and he smells like sweat and my shirt sticks to his arms when he slides them around me. He presses his face to my neck and kisses me right above the collarbone, kisses my cheek, kisses my lips. “I love you, too,” he says.

Tris’ fear - And then Tobias is standing in front of me. But I’m not afraid of Tobias. I look over my shoulder. A bed? Tobias walks toward me, slowly. He smiles down at me (…) presses his mouth to mine, and my lips part. I thought it would be impossible to forget I was in a sumulation. I was wrong; he makes everything else desintegrate. His fingers find my jacket zipper and pull it down in once slow swipe until the zipper detaches. He tugs the jacket from my shoulders. Oh, is all I can think, and he kisses me again. Oh. My fear is being with him. (…) I gently push him back (…) This is the fear I have no solutions for-a boy I like, who wants to… have sex with me? Simulation Tobias kisses my neck. I have to face the fear. I look Simulation Tobias in the eye and say sternly, “I am not going to sleep with you in a hallucination. Okay?

  • Tobias: I'm not going to pretend what's going on with you, but if you senselessly risk your life again-
  • Tris: I am not senselessly risking my life. I'm trying to make sacrifices, like my parents would have, like-
  • Tobias: You are not your parents. You are a sixteen-year-old girl-
  • Tris: How dare you-
  • Tobias: - who doesn't understand the value of a sacrifice lies in its necessity, not in throwing your life away! And if you do that again, YOU AND I ARE DONE.
  • Tris: You're giving me an ultimatum?
  • Tobias: No. I'm telling you a fact. If you throw yourself into danger for no reason again, you will have become nothing more than a Dauntless adrenaline junkie looking for a hit, and I'm not going to help you do it. I LOVE TRIS THE DIVERGENT, who makes decisions apart faction loyalty, who isn't some faction archetype. But the Tris who's trying as hard as she can to destroy herself. . . I can't love her.
  • *Tobias leans his forehead to Tris's*
  • Tobias: I believe you're still in there, come back.
  • *He kisses her lightly*
