So at the UK convention Asylum 16 we trialed a support system for those who suffer from anxiety, depression, and other conditions and it worked amazingly so I thought that maybe we could try and get it working at other conventions too.

The system offers a support network of hundreds of other attendees to those who may need support during the convention. If you need help, a hug, a buddy to queue with, or just someone to talk to, then the badges help to alert other attendees.

The system works using badges which carry two hashtags.

The green ‪#‎APPLEPIE‬ badges are for helpers who can offer support.

And the blue ‪#‎PUDDING‬ badges are for those who may need support during the convention.

The system works using Twitter as you simply tweet using the PUDDING hashtag and the hashtag of the convention you are attending if you are in need of support and a helper will contact you back to offer support.

We would really like to see this support system go global so that everyone can feel safe and happy during a convention weekend.

Jared and Jensen also commented about how proud they were of the system.


We need as many helpers as we can so if you are interested then here is how you can help.

1. Get yourself a Green #APPLIEPIE badge

2. Wear your badge to the convention you are attending.

3. Keep an eye on for any other attendees wearing Blue #PUDDING badges. Even if they haven’t tweeted to say they need support, why not just have a chat to see if they are doing okay.

4. Check the #PUDDING hashtag every so often in case an attendee has tweeted.


The badges are available here

Stickers are available here: [PUDDING] [APPLIEPIE]

  • break up your paragraphs. big paragraphs are scary, your readers will get scared
  • fuuuuck epithets. “the other man got up” “the taller woman sat down” “the blonde walked away” nahhh. call them by their names or rework the sentence. you can do so much better than this (exception: if the reader doesn’t know the character(s) you’re referring to yet, it’s a-okay to refer to them by an identifying trait)
  • blunette is not a thing
  • new speaker, new paragraph. please.
  • “said” is such a great word. use it. make sweet love to it. but don’t kill it
  • use “said” more than you use synonyms for it. that way the use of synonyms gets more exciting. getting a sudden description of how a character is saying something (screaming, mumbling, sighing) is more interesting that way.
  • if your summary says “I suck at summaries” or “story better than summary” you’re turning off the reader, my dude. your summary is supposed to be your hook. you gotta own it, just like you’re gonna own the story they’re about to read
  • follow long sentences w short ones and short ones w long ones. same goes for paragraphs
  • your writing is always better than you think it is. you just think it’s bad because the story’s always gonna be predicable to the one who’s writing it
  • i love u guys keep on trucking

Kids be so damn cute and innocent like how

Awwww

This story was different actually??? And even better???

The girl, Brooklyn Andracke, used to wave at the truck every thursday and the trashman waved her back. It was a very important to her to do it every week. 

It was HER birthday, and she decided that she wanted to share her birthday cake with the trashman. She also wanted to meet her hero, whose name is Delvar Dopson.

The girl’s mother thanked Delvar for his work and explained to him how important it is for Brooklyn to wave at him every thursday.

He was pretty surprised but he admitted that every time he drove near the house he hoped that the girl would wave at him. 

That’s not the end of the story though. Next week Delvar had a surprise for the little girl.

He brought her a bunch of amazing birthday gifts!

They both got quite popular, and Delvar is getting a lot of thank you messages from trashmen from all over the world for representing them in such a good way.
