Agreed. Kissing is a behavior that encourages community bonding and passively helps bolster immunity. Whether it's sexual or not should maybe be something you can perceive nuance in. Of course if someone likes hugs more, don't be a creepy jerk.

I think it does vary between cultures and regions, but I think that mystifying physical contact as weird and solely sexual is what spawns a lot of negative behaviors in general. And I miss hugs, for the record.

I dunno, I may have joked around before, but here physical contact (talking hugs and kisses specifically) is used a lot for family and friends, I find it really cool. Of course, depending on the área, you may still be called a faggot if you greet a friend with a kiss on the cheek :p

It's hard to make it seem natural unless the rest of your story has a strong narrative voice. And if you do it through dialogue it's like "Hey guy, remember how your wife left you because you were too dedicated to your life of top secret government missions which I know about because of poker night?"

"Yes, childhood friend whom I met at my parent's ski lodge before the stock market crashed and we lost all of the possessions we didn't have to sell to an unfortunately timed fire, I do remember that because it was on the anniversary of my little sister's tragic death. I can't believe I dedicated my whole life to my career when I was already the unluckiest guy on the planet, when I could have tried to be normal, but since I am pessimistic I thought it would only hurt me worse to have had that and eventually lose it, which I did. I regret not spending more time with her."

maybe in the sense of there being extraneous content - character material et.c. - which sits outside the work proper

but that doesn't change the fact that the formula "show, don't tell" should fuck right off back to visual media where it means something

there is no 'showing' in writing

just 'telling' at varying levels of abstraction

Actually, I read something recently talking about how "show, don't tell" is a lazy rule by lazy teachers for lazy students. It's an oversimplification of what you should be doing, which is less camera-panning at everything and more conveying complex emotional states. It makes the case that this rule reinforces the tendency of young and inexperienced writers to sacrifice artistry at the alter of pure description. Sure, puffed-up descriptive sentences do a great job of telling you what the couch looks like, but ultimately you should be more concerned about what the couch makes the main character think of or remember than whether or not you can fluff up another way of saying that it looks ugly and old.

So, it's true that you should show, but sometimes just telling is the most efficient way to get onto the meat of what writing excels at- exploring things that you can't see.

I'm okay with people saying hello, for the the record.

I was just random complaining about apologies that have guilt trips attached. I like Adele, but I was listening to this silly music critic show and the guy was talking about "At least I can say that I've tried / To tell you I'm sorry for breaking your heart / But it don't matter it clearly doesn't tear you apart anymore." And I guess basically that it's like a type of apology where it seems like that the person still feeling bad about what you did to hurt them is contingent for the apology to be applicable. Like, guilt-trip apologizing out of nowhere. It is not a sleight against Adele in general it was a silly comment about an annoyance.

The first P in Apocrypha kind of looks like a R. I accidentally read it as AROCRYPHA at first.

At least it's recognizable as Fate, so that's good. Spent longer than I should have trying to make it visible and not to mash too much with the splatter. Then there's the splatter itself, and the 'shaky' effect. Uh... as for changing the background from white to red it'd have to be a dark red, like maroon.

I dunno, I'll continue messing with it.

Ok... then how about this one (it's old)...
