Ep. 47: Show & Tell
“Show, don’t tell” is a rule that many writers believe to be hard-and-fast… But should it be? What are the advantages to “telling” and what exactly does it mean to Show? When should you do either?

Ep. 38: Returning to Your Stories
Sometimes, after a long (often well deserved) break from writing or a story, it is hard to pick up that pen when it has been sitting on the desk collecting dust for a month or two. Today, we tackle how to grab that pen by the ball(point) and jumped head first into writing after a long hiatus.

Nov 1, 2018
Ep. 22: Season 1 In a Nutshell (Pt. 1)

Jul 15, 2018

Jun 17, 2018
Ep. 15: Pee-Oh-Vee
POV, no it's not a power up! It is the way in which your readers will see your stories. A character's point of view is very important and can be difficult sometimes to get right. But we're ditching the technical jargon of first person and third person and going right into the applicable, nitty gritty details of how POVs feel in the hands of a novice writer.
Jun 3, 2018
Ep. 14: Stuck in Twilight
Somethings go great together; peanut butter x jelly, cookies x milk, but certainly not a poorly written fanfic of Edward x Jacob… Join us for this train-wreck, as we slowly discover the truth about Jacob and his strange obsession of running around the woods on his hands and knees, Butt-ass naked.
May 21, 2018
Ep. 13: Self-insertion
The dreaded self-insert, forged in the darkness of fan fictions, it seeks to consume your story... Luckily for you, we have some suggestions about how to avoid that!

Have you ever woken up in the morning drenched in a cold sweat, with the feeling that your story sucks and you do, too? It's a common ailment among novice writers. But we have a cure! With this episode we'll give you some much needed counseling and impart some suggestions and tricks that will make your writing experience much better! Trust us, this episode is better than a mug of coffee!
Apr 8, 2018
Ep. 10: The Great and Terrible Crossover
We make fun of fan fictions all the time, but now our own work is on the line! For the first time, Keepers Descendants, Heroes of Hevalia, and the Ten Lords meet in a crazy crossover clash! But if you are bewildered, don't worry, we're just lost as you are. What's important here is that we learn and grow from our epic failure.

Ep. 9: How to Fanfic

Ep. 7: Helpfully Useful Writing Exercises
Once again, we dip into the Harem Vault to help you explore new story ideas and to challenge your writing skills. Are you still finding it hard to get a story started? Do you find yourself making excuses to put off writing until next week? We can help with that. Just take one writing challenge a day and call after a week to see how you are doing. (ft. The auditory anomaly that is the Jedward. Seriously, no audio file is safe from his corruption.)
Feb 18, 2018
Ep. 6: Sprouts (ft. Buttow Dunberg)
There was once a dream. A dream that there would be a school of exceptional individuals, trained to face the environmental issues we never could. This dream would be realized but for the fact that it is taking Jed, The Exoctic Baby, longer than George R.R. Martin to write one freaking book!!! Thankfully, we recovered this from the Harem vaults, and we present this nugget of green goodness to you.
Feb 11, 2018
Ep. 5: Characters (and body hair)
Characters: can’t live with ‘em, can’t live without ‘em. In this episode, we spill all of our knowledge about creating and writing for dynamic, interesting characters. We also give plenty of examples of what not to do, as seems to be our forte. Also on the docket: Big. Bushy. Eyebrows.
Feb 4, 2018
Ep. 4: My Immortal (i.e. the greatest fanfic to grace this earth)
Join Vampire Potter, Draco Malfoy, and Ebony D’arkness Dementia Raven Way in this epic adventure known half the world over. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll probably become a Satanist. Featuring the vocal talents of Camille, Nathan, Lars, and Vince. J.K. Rowling... we’re sorry.
Jan 28, 2018
Ep. 3: The First Steps
Now that you know your writer’s class (gardener or architect), it is time to grab your D20 and get started on your adventure! However, that is easier said than done. But never fear - we’ve failed so often that we have more advice than you could ever know what to do with.
Jan 28, 2018
Ep. 2: My Bad Boy Link
In this episode we obtain proof that Jed exists, and Nate loses his bad fanfic virginity. We have captured the Infinite Jed’s melodious, world destroying voice, bringing life to Link in this Oscar-winning story. It’s jam-packed with romance, melodrama, sexual harassment(?), and everything that The Legend of Zelda is not! Seriously folks, this gem is now off the internet and can only be found here!
Jan 28, 2018
Ep. 1: Types of Writers (Ft. Lars on painkillers)
When it comes to writers, there are architects, gardeners, and novices. Three guesses as to which ones we are! Camille and Nathan get thoroughly lost on tangents about what kind of writer you might be, as Lars devolves to communicating via text. Also, did you know that cat ears and tails are a totally viable fetish? https://tinyurl.com/853y8te
