The things I blog about are Danny Phantom, Homestuck, Rooster Teeth (RWBY, RvB, and occasional AH things), comics, cartoons, various anime, food, cute animals, important topics, and some other stuff.
Things can get nsfw at times but I do my best to tag it, and have a specific "homestuck nsfw" tag as well. If you're following me and need anything tagged, I'll do my best to accommodate you.
Anonymous asked: Hey there! In the story I am writing it takes place on a different planet. However I really want a certain race of people to have African accents. How do I describe accents that don’t necessarily exist? I hope that made sense!
There’s a wealth of ways to encapsulate an accent, what with all the words available to you. It’s a matter of how straight-forward or creative you want to go. Maybe some of the methods below will help.
- She had a fragile accent.
- The people had throaty voices, sawing out words in blunt grumbles.
- His voice was splinters and broken glass.
- Her accent had a song-like quality that reminded her of swaying tides.
- He had a French accent.
- "I have to go," she said, though from her accent, French, the words sounded more like "I hive tego."
Straight-forward & ‘Technical’:
- He had a French accent, perhaps Northern, his voice lilting the edges of his vowels and dragging out others.
Some methods work better in combination with others, such as straight-forward combined with technical (as shown). It truly shouldn’t take many sentences to give readers enough info to imagine how someone’s voice or accent sounds. Therefore I wouldn’t overdue the clues, as it can stir into offensive.

When girls go out wearing tiny, tight, skimpy outfits, I mean they have the choice to wear something else. some thing less provocative, so really girls are asking for it.
If you’re out in public and I see you’re not wearing any protective headgear does that give me the right to smash in your skull with a hammer? I mean you asked for it, since you’re not wearing something to protect your head.
So I went to see The Boxtrolls today having been very excited about all of the publicity, the general theme of the film, and all of the posters I saw of what appeared to be same gender families.
I left the cinema in tears because of it. It’s very transmisogynist. I do not advise anyone, especially trans women, to see this film. I’ll explain why below.
TW FOR THE CONTENT BELOW. It contains spoilers and descriptions of transmisogyny.

I hit words at random on iOS 8’s new predictive text feature so I could see what type of sentence my phone thinks I’m likely to say, and
women grow hair on their boobs and their butts and their legs and their arms and their stomachs and their face and really anywhere their genetics decides to have hair and it is perfectly normal what isnt normal is men who have never touched a razor trying to shame women for not looking like a hairless baby
shout this loud.
