hey, a tip to ppl making posts or asks about how people are “blowing this out of proportion” or even one i’ve seen to “calm down you fuckheads”—stop. you’re being an ass. you’re on a website where ppl post ten million gifs in one post about how jared padalecki makes them drown in feels, ofc people are going to be upset about a network mishandling their favorite show whether or not it’s cancelled. it’s not airing on tv any more and it’s not getting out to new fans, and information comes even to the most dedicated/sleuthing of online fans only a day or two before major changes. so yeah, watching korra online instead of on tv isn’t really changing my life in any way, but i’m still frustrated.

It’s funny how truces put forward by Hamas are declined and largely ignored by MSM but the moment Hamas reject any farcical truces agreed to by Israel (which keep the inhumane blockade on Gaza intact, for example) it’s front page news and you’ll never hear the end of it. ‘HAMAS REJECTED THE TRUCE HAMAS DOESN’T WANT PEACE’.
Bring up new things or locations as the character experiences them. If the character is eating breakfast, talk briefly about the food, but in the context that the character would think about the food. They’re probably not going to look at their morning toast and think about how the specific grains from the north went to the mills in this one southern town to make the toast. However, they might think about how expensive this bread is now after the famine that struck the north last year. Hence, the reader knows the north of the country grows grain.
If the character goes to the market, they may see stores that carry a specialty good only from this country. They will see some foreigners - identifying who the foreigners are is always good - and they’ll comment on the weather. Little things like this add into your complete story worldbuilding.
