I am so sick of people trying to claim 50 Shades of Grey will not be able to have a negative effect on society because it’s “just a book”. The Bible was just a book. The Communist Manifesto was just a book. Mein Kampf, To Kill a Mockingbird, 1984, The Quran, freaking Harry Potter were all “just books”. If you keep saying literature and media don’t have the potential to change countries, or cultures, or the world, then you’re just deluding yourself.

but what if she’s actually on fire?
Then describing her as fiery is acceptable. And now I’ll forever be disappointed when people use that description and the girl isn’t literally on fire.
Describing your lady characters as a ‘fiery, young woman’ literally is as original and descriptive as ‘white guy with a beard’.
I want an actual character, not your stock placeholders.
I loved Lunchables as a kid. I didn’t have them throughout most of middle or highschool. Now I just love Lunchables.
