10 Things NOT to say to Adoptees

thephotogfeminist:

1.    Do you know your REAL parents?

My “real” parents are the ones raising me. The term you are looking for is: biological parent, bio parents, or birth mother/father.

2.    Why did your mom give you up?

Again- it’s birth mom, and she did not “give me up.” She placed me for adoption because she thought that was the best option for everyone involved. 

3. Why didn’t your birth mom want you?

Many birth mothers DO want their babies, but they decide that doing so would be detrimental to her life as well as the child’s. 

4.What if your mom had aborted YOU?

This is usually said to me before the person discovers I’m adopted AND ITS MY FAVORITE. My birth mother almost did abort me and she aborted a pregnancy before mine, and guess what, I still vehemently support her right to do so. My birth mother carried me as a GIFT to my parents and me. She was in no way obligated to do it and it wasn’t easy. Saying she shouldn’t have the right to abort is a slap in the face to her CHOICE. Because that’s what it was. A choice. NOT an obligation. 

So in short, don’t ask this unless you want to completely lose your argument.

5. God blessed your parents when he gave them you!

Well first he tormented them with years of infertility, 6 ectopic pregnancies, and some very dangerous miscarriages. Oh, and it was my birth mom that “blessed” them with a child. 

6. Where are you from?

This is not one I experience, but many trans-national and trans-racial adoptees HATE this one. It’s mostly annoying because you’re basically asking why they don’t “match” the physical appearance of their adoptive family, but there’s also the fact that they’re not really “from” another country. If they were adopted at a young age, they probably don’t remember living in their birth country.

7. How much did you cost?

Ummm, I was not sold. The phrase you are looking for is: “How much did the adoption process cost?” Adoptions are expensive, but you’re not paying for the child. You pay for lawyer fees, home studies, and agency fees, NOT the child. 

8. What was the orphanage like?

If you’re talking to a domestic adoptee, this just tells us you have absolutely no idea how adoption works. No, I was not dropped off at an orphanage. In America (and Canada),very very very few children ever stay in an orphanage. There are only a handful left and most are for special needs children. When a child is placed for adoption, they stay with foster parents or the couple that is planning to adopt them.

As for trans-national adoptees- if they actually did spend time in an orphanage, that may not be an experience they want to talk about with just anyone, so don’t be a dick.

9. WOW! You look like their real kid!

I am their real kid …

10. I don’t think I would feel like an adopted child was really “mine.”

If you feel this way, please just keep it to yourself. I respect your right to make a family in whatever way works for your, but this is not a discussion that I want to have. I feel strongly that family is made of the people that raise you and are there for you. If you try to tell me how “blood ties” are stronger, I will feel extremely awkward and probably a bit upset. Just please don’t …

How do you write a mentor character so that they're wise and intelligent but still humanly realistic in terms of flaws and weaknesses?


clevergirlhelps:

I’ve often found most character weaknesses come from the strengths the character already has. To that end, let’s look at strengths a mentor character usually has:

  • Wisdom. The mentor character is supposed to be wiser, if not smarter, than their student. Wisdom or intelligence comes with a number of flaws. The mentor could be arrogant in their intelligence or their wisdom could be difficult to understand. The mentor’s maturity could turn into patronization and condescension. 
  • Experience. Mentor characters have had time to go everywhere, do anything, and learn everything. They have experience, except now they’re older and they aren’t as sharp or flexible as they were in their golden years. The mentor could have the usual problems of an old person, and personality issues associated with those problems: self-hate because they aren’t at their best and jealousy because some people are at their best.
  • Pride. The mentor becomes a parent figure for their student. The mentor could take too much pride in their student and believe their student is invincible - and that’s dangerous for a number of reasons. The student might stop trusting their mentor, who puts them in dangerous situations.

Some other traits:

  • Short-tempered. I think it’s because most mentors tend to be older, but nearly all of them are irascible. You can make this into an anger issue or just something that causes friction between the mentor and others.
  • Reticent. Mentors like to keep things hidden until the plot demands it’s time for the protagonist to know. People/the student might not trust the mentor because they have so many secrets. 
  • Born in a different time/place. Again with the age, but mentors tend to come from places and eras different than where the protagonist comes from. The age/location gap could cause friction or the mentor could have some beliefs that translate into flaws when dealing with the protagonist.
  • Doubt. The student is inept at the beginning of their training. If their training progresses and they’re still inept, the mentor might feel doubt about their abilities to teach and/or their student’s ability to learn/become the Chosen One.

To shake things up, you might want to change the mentor’s past, disposition, or life. This will create more flaws and such. Here are some suggestions:

  • The mentor is the same or similar in age to their student (NO ROMANCE)
  • The mentor was never formally schooled in anything and sometimes makes things up to appear smart
  • The mentor has a family/other pressing responsibilities they’re juggling in addition to mentoring the hero
  • The mentor has multiple students
  • The Chosen One could be the mentor or their student, but no one knows yet - the mentor takes the student under their wing just in case the inexperienced student is The One
  • The mentor and the student really don’t get along and part ways a number of times

tomhanksrph: a guide sort of thing—ADD/ADHD.

tomhanksrph:

I’m writing this because I’ve read a lot of misconceptions about ADHD/ADD.  I want to clear the air as someone who has been diagnosed with it for six years, and has three siblings who also have ADHD/ADD.  No case of ADHD is exactly alike, and I’d like to think I’ve got the experience and authority to write about it.

In my story there're alchemists but I can't find a way to use alchemy in combat. Please help me!

WATCH FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST: BROTHERHOOD IT’S ON NETFLIX

I assume you’re talking about this kind of alchemy, which was half chemistry and half people trying to turn lead into gold. Doing battle is not a requirement of having a magic system. You don’t need to kill people with magic to make it a real system.

If you still insist on hurting people, a large part of alchemy was transmutation (turning one item into something else). There are endless possibilities in battle when you can turn your enemy’s sword into, say, a chicken. Also, if your alchemist has succeeded into turning metal into gold, turning someone’s sword or armor into gold would give you a massive advantage. Firstly, gold is really heavy. Secondly, it’s really soft. Thirdly, it’s rare and perhaps an alchemist evades their enemies by turning their weapons into gold, whereupon the enemy is attacked by greedy passersby, and the alchemist can escape in the chaos. 

Also, alchemy was the earliest form of chemistry. Alchemists could have discovered the compounds that go boom when you put them together. Perhaps alchemists aren’t the best hand-to-hand fighters, but they are good at throwing bombs.

I am a bit of an alchemy buff so I want to add to this.

There are non-Western types of alchemy. Alchemy did not originate only in Renaissance Europe. There was European alchemy, but there was also Islamic alchemy, Chinese alchemy, Indian alchemy, and Greco-Roman alchemy.

That being said, most types of alchemy had one or both of these goals:

To transform something that wasn’t gold (lead, mercury, etc.) into gold.

To find a means of becoming immortal.

Related to this, Chinese alchemy, for example, was very much medically-based. They actually invented gunpowder while attempting to make a potion for eternal life.

As clevergirlhelps said, you don’t necessarily need to have a combat-based magic system for it to be a real magic system. That being said, if you do want it to be combat based, there are a few directions you can go in. Obviously just using it for combat medicine is one possible choice. Another choice is to go further than just turning lead/mercury/etc. into gold and have a more general transmutation idea (like in FMA). 

Because alchemy was never just one thing, you can take the basic idea of alchemy (in whatever form you want) and change it to fit your needs. Depending on how far you change it, you might not necessarily want to call it alchemy, but you can. You can go in the chemistry direction, or the transmutation direction. You can go in the direction of creating potions to do the work for the fighters (healing potions, strength potions, etc.) You can look at different types of alchemic symbols. You could have it be based in the planets, because that was a big thing especially in Western alchemy. 

My suggestion would be to wander around the Wikipedia pages on alchemy for a while and see what catches your fancy.
