What a great question. I think healthy depictions of love in fiction are super important, and we need more of them.
- don’t romanticize codependency
- or stalking
- really don’t
- don’t replicate yaoi tropes. ever.
- keep the drama external to the relationship: instead of character A being an outrageous asshole and character B’s ‘responsibility’ is teaching them how not to be an asshole, have dragons attack while characters A and B are kind and supportive to each other
- never ever go for the thematic of one person completing another
- or give a character a love interest as a ‘reward’
My askbox and replies are open for important things I may have missed!
I was sitting on the computer last night trying to be productive and actually write something. My first sentence included the character listening to a voice through an intercom and my first thought was, “What kind of voice is it?”
So, naturally, I found myself googling the different ways to describe a voice. I present to you my findings! I hope you all find it useful.
- adenoidal (adj): if someone’s voice is adenoidal, some of the sound seems to come through their nose
- appealing (adj): an appealing look/voice shows that you want help, approval, or agreement
- breathy (adj): with loud breathing noises
- brittle (adj): if you speak in a brittle voice, you sound as if you are about to cry
- croaky (adj): if someone’s voice sounds croaky, they speak in a low, rough voice that sounds as if they have a sore throat
- dead (adj): if someone’s eyes or voice are dead, they feel or show no emotion
- disembodied (adj): a disembodied voice comes from someone who you cannot see
- flat (adj): spoken in a voice that does not go up and down; this word is often used for describing the speech of people from a particular region
