An OC with L?
Technically cheating because he's referred to by his anglo name in the books, but Tzu Lisai (Cedric), from the Red Legacy.

ꜱᴏꜰᴛ ᴛʜɪɴɢꜱ ᴛʜᴀᴛ ᴍᴀᴋᴇ ᴍᴇ ꜱᴄʀᴇᴀᴍ (a romantic's list)
hands clenching
like asdfghjkjhgfds
specifically *that* one
reaching for each other in the dark
pulling them close for a hug
hugs just hit harder than kisses 97% of the time
*knowing* they are behind you and feeling their every move
defending one another (healthy)
leaving little notes
HANDWRITTEN LETTERS.
running back for a last kiss
huddled together under an umbrella
falling asleep on their lap
people watching on the train
staying up late talking
"this made me think of you"
looking for their opinion first
rings rings rings
HANDS.
those soft smiles where the corners of their eyes crinkle up
EYES.
and the quirk of lips.
squeezing hands to let them know they're there
looking at them when something reminds of you of them and they're looking right back smiling
impromptu meetings
stifling each other's laugh while laughing
knowing looks
pulling them closer when the heart pangs
rubbing circles on your skin with their thumb
long conversations even after they should have left
when your heart squeezes when you see them
they holding you back after you try to leave
laughing in your ear
SOFT LAUGHS.
falling asleep to a movie flickering over your faces

OC Alphabet Soup
Send me a letter of the alphabet A-Z, and if I have an OC starting with that letter, I'll tell about them.

hi. :) i am so happy i came upon your page. i do have some trouble with writing, like for me it’s detail, transition words, when to stop the paragraph, etc. if you could please help it would be appreciated. :)
hi 🤍 here's the best I can do:
detail - used when describing an unfamiliar sense - ex. taste, visual senses, smell - taste: think of sweet and salty, of bitter and umami, link it to common flavours—fruit or candy, for example. - smell: similar to taste, but through the nostrils. smoky, damp, crisp. - hearing: sounds. rustling, cawing, moving. etc.
"Writing which effectively uses descriptive detail will allow a reader to do more than merely see words on a page. Original description gives writing a sense of honesty and believability, while concise details can help enhance your focus."
transition words - used to introduce a new idea / connect two together - render the story smoother
here is a post I just made for transition words! they can be used at the start of a sentence or in the middle—and a lot of them are used without you knowing, so I wouldn't worry too much!
paragraphs stops I don't know if you mean paragraph breaks or a new line?
new line: - dialogue (every time someone speaks) - a change of subject - whenever the 'camera' changes--whenever a new action is introduced - new topic
"'The Potters, that's right, that's what I heard —'
' — yes, their son, Harry —'
Mr Dursley stopped dead. Fear flooded him. He looked back at the whisperers..." (Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone)
paragraph break - a jump in time - the pov of a new character
not quite sure what else?

Hi Lyra! Hope all's goin' well.
So, I'm currently writing a story where two characters meet after 10 years. One of them (really introverted and shy, but sarcastic and witty) left the rural village where him and the other character (determined and stubborn) had grown up together, because of a job offering in a big city. Their meeting happens casually, and is a bit awkward overall. I don't intend on making their relationship romantic in any sense, they're just childhood friends.
If you can help me with some dialogue or situation prompts, I'd be the most gratefull person in the northern emisphere. Thanks!
ᴀᴡᴋᴡᴀʀᴅ ᴍᴇᴇᴛɪɴɢ ᴘʀᴏᴍᴘᴛꜱ
"hi—uh, do I know you?" "no." "you seem familiar..." "no." "no?" "yes? who are you?"
"remember that time—" "—you fell off your bike, landing you in bed for the next three months with broken bones? yeah, that looked painful." "I was going to say we jumped in the lake together, but that works too, I guess."
they meet at a workshop and are put together. since they've left each other, they filled in the space for one another—so they keep completing each others' sentences and reaching for the same things.
first day of work and they mix up their bags at a coffeeshop.
"hey, you look familiar...is by chance your name Logan?" "no? sorry, who are you?" "Lindsay." "why are you trying to guess my name?" "Lily?" "...no." *starts walking away* "WAIT WASN'T IT LACHLAN?" "NO."
*A tries to hit on B and is left speechless when they recognize them—B doesn't remember A and A immediately tries to take it back, leaving B extremely confused*
they both wear the same Costco outfit to the job interview
B spills coffee on A
A's papers spill everywhere and B helps them to pick it up

i'm new to writing and I just wanna ask how to get a grade 6 or 7 readability on hemingway ㅠㅠ
[edit edit edit.]
cut off adverbs. not all of them, but enough.
listen to Hemingway: where there is a line, edit.
keep on rewriting. that way only the important details will return, and you can essentially "shave" the writing of useless details.
check grammar, punctuation, and spelling, especially.
take a breather. if you keep adding commas to a sentence, stop and start a new one.
look for consistent marks in your writing.
have a friend review your work.
remember that Hemingway is AI. it's programmed to look for certain patterns. it doesn't know context, it doesn't know poetry. in the end, you're the writer.
