    Lyra stared fiercely at the newcomer. Pantalaimon changed into a beady-eyed hawk and perched on her shoulder.
    The girl had pallid, ghostly skin, and her dæmon was in the form of a hairless cat. Her black hair and eyes matched the color of her ragged frock.

    There is a town surrounded by woods, where children pore over fairy tales that are as real as the bread the bakery sells in the square.

    “My dear, let me tell you a story.”
    “A bedtime story?”
    “A good one.”

    Also, it would be amazing if Soman and Leigh Bardugo could write a crossover book someday, like Red School!

    Hello, members of Quills and Spills, today’s post on tropes will just be a question (credit to @zee110, check out her amazing Question of the Day).
    _
    There are two common ways of viewing tropes: 1) Tropes are unoriginal and overused, so I should avoid using them 2) Tropes are popular and well-loved for a reason and are good tools. What are your f…[Read more]

        cattyrose replied 4 months, 2 weeks ago

        I feel du.mb asking but what is a trope

          cattyrose replied 4 months, 2 weeks ago

          ohhhhhhhhhhh ok

          book-lover77 replied 4 months, 2 weeks ago

          It’s like a cliché type thing (that’s how I see them, probably not the most accurate, sorry). Basically, an overused character or sequence of events or plot twist, anything like that, and has been used many times before and isn’t the most original.
          My least favorite trope has to be popular kid x nerd kid, but I do hate love triangles too (if th…[Read more]

        delilahkitty replied 4 months, 2 weeks ago

        Yes what is it-

        lauren813 replied 4 months, 2 weeks ago

        my favorite is quite obviously enemies to lovers and my least favorite would probably be the chosen one – so annoying

        shadowshinobi replied 4 months, 2 weeks ago

        My least favourite trope is love triangles. They’re way too overused and they make me cringe sometimes.

          lauren813 replied 4 months, 2 weeks ago

          eek yes, and love hexagons only make things worse

          shadowshinobi replied 4 months, 2 weeks ago

          Any love shape in general is bad.

          lauren813 replied 4 months, 2 weeks ago

          yes except sometimes if theyre written well they can be good

          shadowshinobi replied 4 months, 2 weeks ago

          Yes, like The Infernal Devices. One of my favourite book series.

          lauren813 replied 4 months, 2 weeks ago

          oml yes the infernal devices is amazing!!

        madnsocal replied 4 months, 2 weeks ago

        My least favorite trope is probably the nerd x popular kid because honestly I think it’s very unrealistic. Usually those type of books there is the “popular” kids, “nerd” kids, “art” kids, “drama” kids, “music” kids, and so many other types of categories. And those kids have to stick together just because of what they look like or what they like…[Read more]

        I know, I’ll get a lot of hate for this, but personally no. It’s not because of the popular kid x nerd kid though, it’s because how Sophie treats Hort. Sophie is treated like a Queen by Hort which I think is adorable, but Sophie treats Hort like a trash bag and a waiter who does everything for her. I think if Rafal wasn’t planning to destroy…[Read more]

        2iycrb2qawutob replied 4 months, 2 weeks ago

        My favourite is probably enemies to lovers and my least favourite would be the bad guy turning good or something along those lines or vice versa when a good guy turns bad

        lunalovegoodfan replied 4 months, 2 weeks ago

        Enemies to loversssss ofc is my favorite or a really really wicked Love triangle hmm yeah chosen one really is awful

        jafaristhebest replied 4 months, 2 weeks ago

        Okay, I have a list of tropes I hate:
        1) Chosen One; normally results in them being a Mary Sue or something like that or having all the powers (Sophie Foster I’M KIND OF LOOKING AT YOU HERE) Plus they’re frequently not as interesting as the “supporting” or “background” characters, such as Luke from Star Wars–he’s kinda the Chosen One and by far…[Read more]

        agathatedros06 replied 4 months, 3 weeks ago

        I do more Big Picture. I have a basic outline of the main thing to do and sometimes I come up with specific ideas for different scenes and write them down so I can later insert them into the story. I also know my characters quite well, I create bios for them, and so I can imagine what theyy’d do in a certain situation and not plan it out
