8 Words You Should Avoid When Writing
As always, Orwell’s final rule applies: “Break any of these rules before saying anything barbarous.” There are instances where each of these words fills a valuable role. However, especially among inexperienced writers, these words are frequently molested and almost always gum up the works.
“Sudden” means quickly and without warning, but using the word “suddenly” both slows down the action and warns your reader. Do you know what’s more effective for creating the sense of the sudden? Just saying what happens.I pay attention to every motion, every movement, my eyes locked on them.
Suddenly,The gun goes off.
When using “suddenly,” you communicate through the narrator that the action seemed sudden. By jumping directly into the action, you allow the reader to experience that suddenness first hand. “Suddenly” also suffers from being nondescript, failing to communicate the nature of the action itself; providing no sensory experience or concrete fact to hold on to. Just … suddenly.
Feel free to employ “suddenly” in situations where the suddenness is not apparent in the action itself. For example, in “Suddenly, I don’t hate you anymore,” the “suddenly” substantially changes the way we think about the shift in emotional calibration.
Do you ever just scroll down your dash and the a picture like this shows up and you think “nah, just another pic of Tom as Loki..” and then it hits you?
C’mon it’s not thaaat confusing!;_; or…?
Dear, miss OrangePlum, I hope you don’t mind my fanart for your lovely Mister Greeter fic, cause I doubt this is the last I draw of it.
sorryU//v//UOrangeplum: Ahh keep sending it to me if you keep drawing it. I love how you do Arthur’s hair. It’s so soft looking. And this basically is a comical summary of the entire story. I like the different size proportions, too. Thanks for showing me!
I decided to put all my fic recs in one post, hoping this is easier to follow. All the updates are on top and the previous recs are under the “Read more” cut. Current fic count: 369. Enjoy :) (Thor/kid!Loki rec post is here)
Untitled | Explicit | There’s a long, broad stripe of tongue against skin, and Thor knows he’s there. He grins, his mouth only occupied by a smile for a moment before he goes again, licking at the sweetest, most intimate spot his brother has with generously wicked intent.
At Times We Tie Our Own Leash | Explicit (Jotun AU) | "His fingers wind in the thick golden strands of Thor’s hair. Yes, he will enjoy this. He won’t lock him up in a cage forever – that would not be satisfying enough. He would shove him in the cage and on one point leave the door open – and Thor wouldn’t escape, Thor, the mighty son of Asgard would stay there on his own free will. That is the utter destruction Loki is planning to impose upon the foolish cherished prince."
Untitled | Explicit | “Are you sure you want to do this? Because we can wait longer if you’d like to.” Thor was kneeling between Loki’s trembling legs, three oil-slicked fingers stretching his opening.
Wake Up, Sunshine | Explicit | Thor was sprawled over two-thirds of his enormous, four-post bed, face up, arms flung wide. In typical fashion he had migrated over from his side of the bed throughout the course of the night and left only a small sliver of space for Loki’s repose. Loki didn’t mind; he’d grown accustomed to being crowded out by his brother. He smiled into his pillow and watched the slow rise and fall of Thor’s naked chest.
To Unspool the Secrets of Our Selves | Mature (Jotun AU) | Every summer since eir second century ey has been in Asgard, sweltering, called he or she, eir weaving-skills treated as though weak and cowardly. Loki has no fondness for the Æsir, eir betrothed’s people, but ey is not so honorless as to condemn Jotunheim again to war for eir own freedom.
Untitled | Explicit | Thor turned immediately, smiling when Loki spun around, Loki’s hard cock twitching in his face.
Loki grabbed hold of the base of Thor’s cock, his reddened lips curving into an even sharper grin. “I figure you know what to do…”
Thor grinned back at him, licking his lips and nodding. “I can figure it out.”
Handle On You | Mature | “Your punishment leaves much to be desired”
Untitled | Gen | Thor thinks it’s a mistake at first, the noises he hears. But as he listens, the noises come again. It’s just west of him, maybe twenty feet. Thor moves cautiously still, stepping underneath some dead brush. The noises, he realizes now, are sobs.
One Day, Maybe | Explicit (underage, Kid!Loki) | "You would want to be taken by force, wouldn’t you? To be proved that despite all the nine realms hating your very existence at least one man would find you satisfactory for a quick and dirty lay."
Untitled | Explicit | “You will apologize for your wickedness, elf.” Thor’s voice rumbled, hard and authoritative.
“I will not.” Loki’s voice was already getting rough.
With a crack Thor’s hand smacked Loki’s ass, right where it joined his thigh. Loki gasped, his mouth falling open and his eyes fluttering closed. The pale skin already turning pink. Thor smacked the other cheek, rubbing the skin with his callused hand.
Raised By Wolves | Mature | Each step forward thumps to match the rising beat of his heart. Still Loki pretends disinterest as Thor draws ever closer with mouth set, and hair so wet yet as to drip unheeded; the light linen of his robe clings to muscle, shifting like a second crimson skin over heated blood. Loki’s tongue moves out, caresses his own lower lip as if to catch the droplet that falls at that very moment from his brother’s raised chin.
Untitled | Gen | In the end, Loki decided it was easier to blame it on Thor. That sort of arrangement made a great many matters easier to deal with and this particular one had the benefit of being truer than most. The entire world cast it’s golden gaze on Thor and as such, Thor had no reason to narrow his gaze in return, not with the entire world spread so neatly before the firstborn son of Odin.
Tooth and Claw | Mature | Thor is Little Red Riding Hood. Loki is the Big Bad Wolf. This is what happens when Thor loses a bet to his brother.
Untitled | Explicit (Jotun AU) | The sorcerer turned to face him, a half-smirk on his face. “If you wished to strip me of my gold by hand, you should have done it in public. It would have made a better statement.”
“You’re criticizing how I conquered?” Thor asked, eyebrow raised.
He snorted. “You won a battle, Odinson. The war goes on.”
Cease to Know, or to Tell, or to Feel, or to Be Your Own | Explicit | Thor and Loki and eight winters on the earth below.
Untitled | Explicit | It must have been the warm water, and the strenuous training they had earlier, for Thor finds Loki half asleep when he enters the bath chamber. To catch his brother off guard, an opportunity like this does not come often.
The Hammer is His Penis | Explicit | Thor’s own seed slicked it’s entrance, and as his opening slipped past the haft’s bulging counterweight he thought, See how I have ruined you, Brother.
Untitled | Explicit (Jotun AU) | Thor had returned from a month’s journey north, where the cold was unforgiving as it settled deep inside his bones, and traveling across the thin ice was as facing his own death with every step. He had been turned around and around by the thick snow, wandering endlessly with Mjolnir clutched in his frozen fingers.
It was all, all upon a mere whim from his royal consort, who wanted the fur of the savage white bear for a rug.
The Unavoidable Thing Between Us | Explicit | Loki then slips between him as he might slip between worlds, a silent shadow that exists simply because the sun does: there can be never one without the other. A startled indrawn breath marks Thor’s only audible response, his eyes wide and as uncertain as the half-drawn fingers against his trembling palms. But it is not for his pleasure, it is for his own good.
And if Loki takes his own pleasure in that, why, it is but due payment for service rendered.
Untitled | Explicit | Thor had was finally home after a two week hunting trip. Naturally, Loki had greeted him in his bed wearing only an annoyed look.
“You were gone too damn long.” Loki pulled Thor down on top of him, wrapping his legs around Thor’s waist and kissing him hard.
The Northern Sea | Explicit (mermaid AU, WIP) | Lost and freezing in the middle of the ocean, Loki encounters an intriguing and dangerous stranger that seems more likely to make things worse rather than better.
The Promised Land | Mature | Tales of the hunt, and the games lovers play when all of eternity stretches before them.
Diarkis | Mature (Troy AU) | Thor, a Greek warrior, invades a temple and takes a Trojan priest for his own.
Untitled | Explicit | Thor had Loki pushed against the wall as soon as they stepped out of the packed dining hall and he was already covering Loki’s neck in wet kisses.
“We will get caught, you idiot.” Loki pushed weakly at Thor’s massive shoulders.
Thor nuzzled into Loki neck, the rough hair of his beard made Loki shiver. “Don’t care… I want you now…” Thor pressed his full weight against Loki, grinding his hips into him and moaning at the friction.
Comfort From The Storm | Gen | Thor loves it when there is a thunder storm.
Untitled | Explicit |“I am sure I can make you come like never before without once touching your cock.”
Let Me Entertain You | Gen | Loki uses his magic to cheer Thor up.
Untitled | PG | He is ecstatic. That night at the feast, he folds his happiness into a square and tucks it in his pocket, for once unbothered by the way Thor passes his chair to sit at the lower tables with his friends. Loki pets his secret, takes it out often, unwilling to show it but unable to keep his eyes from lingering what feels like moments and ages.
Steady | Explicit (High School AU) | Loki and Thor under the bleachers. Somehow, Thor just gets it.
Untitled | Explicit | “Say it.” Thor dug his fingers into Loki’s hips, bruising the pale skin stretched over bone.
Loki sneered at him from over his shoulder. “No.”
The Sensation of Nothingness | Explicit | He is the wind, and nothing more.
Relax | Explicit | It’s a hot day and all Thor wants to go is get back to his private bathing chambers. Thing is, Loki is already in there.
These Broken Wings | Gen | After wreaking havoc on earth, Loki escapes punishment and imprisonment on Asgard, only to turn up again one day. But it is not quite the return he planned.
