October “Toby” Daye was in many ways my first “real” protagonist. She was complicated, she was sad, she was bruised and refusing to break, and she was not afraid to put her duty ahead of her desire to be liked. She bullied her way through the world she was created to inhabit, looking at every complication that stood in her way and saying “No, you move.” After a lifetime spent moving dolls through stories, it was like I finally had a real person to follow and document. I started writing her adventures, and sending them out to people I trusted to read and review. Midway through either the second or the third book—I don’t remember anymore—I got a note from one of my proofers saying “You can’t have Toby do this, she’s always been a little bitchy, but this makes her a total bitch. No one will like her if she does this.”
I panicked. I couldn’t write a series about an unlikeable character! I’d never get published, no one else would ever meet my imaginary friends, and everything I’d worked for my whole life would be over, all because Toby was unlikeable.
Then I took a deep breath, and wrote back to the proofer requesting that they do a find/replace on the .doc, and plug in the name “Harry Dresden” for every instance of “October Daye.” They did, and lo and behold, what had been “bitchy” and “inappropriate” was suddenly “bold” and “assertive.” A male character in the same situation, with the same background, taking the same actions, was completely in the right, justified, and draped with glory. He was a hero. Toby? Toby was an unlikeable bitch.
The proofer withdrew the compliant. I have never forgotten it.
Here is where Robbie Williams calls Nigel Martin Smith a First Class Cunt on Friday 14/09/2012 Dublin and so he is a FIRST CLASS CUNT :)) Robbie then Bursts …
I try not to bash people on tumblr, but honestly, Nigel Martin-Smith is a disgusting, vile human.
Its also funny cause he didn't even recognize him until he said he was "little Forest" in Forest Gump so that's what he was calling him apparently. And then Haley had to go up and give some speech while stoned they were both just awkwardly laughing out loud the whole time. I kinda wish I was there lol. Good to know it's just a movie costume though!
That sounds awesome! Hahaha.
And yeah, I’m glad I was told about the costume because I hate spreading false info.
But in all honesty, I only reblogged it because he looks exactly like my brother’s friend.
Have a nice night!

Haley joel osment omg. Honestly hes probably been on drugs. About 10 years ago, when my boyfriend was in high school, he was at disney doing some performance for his school. I guess haley was there for some sort of promotional thing as well. Anyway my boyfriend was off getting high somewhere and haley started talking to him and long story short they hung out getting high for a couple hours. I have no idea if HJO still does drugs (my boyfriend doesnt), but that could explain why he looks a mess.
Sora was gettin high
