Added DiffLines:

* CommonalityConnection: In the [[https://curiosityquills.com/limyaael/represented-relationships/ Less Represented Relationships]] rant, Limyaael argues that relationships between characters who have things in common can be more entertaining and believable to read about than characters who are complete opposites.


* {{Dissimile}}/{{NOT}}: Usually in the form of: "That's totally original. Only not."

* YouDidEverythingYouCould: Limyaael argues against the idea. While conceding that characters expressing this sentiment to another character to cheer them up or comfort them is fine, if an author constantly makes it so that the protagonist's failures have no consequence ("It doesn't matter that you couldn't/didn't save him from the housefire, he would have died that day from Lethal Disease #9567 anyway!") the protagonist verges into MarySue/BoringInvincibleHero territory, and the story loses realism and depth.

Despite the name, Limyaael’s rants are not just for fantasy writers. She also has covered topics that are not limited to fantasy, like dialogue and romance, as well as more general topics like plotting and characterization. One of the features of the journal format is that Limyaael’s commenters also have much to say, from additional facts to opposing viewpoints.

* {{Magitek}}: Her [[http://limyaael.livejournal.com/413306.html limitations on magic rant]] says that this would be the natural consequence in a setting with cheap magic. "If the world has magic, why isn't it that world’s technology?"

* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Almost any rant about elves, demi-humans, non-humans, etc. will invoke a comparison of the non-human species being in complete and utter harmony with their environment while the humans are hellbent on destroying it.

* TropesAreNotBad: Limyaael occasionally admits that some concepts are actually quite intriguing and can provide a lot of possibilities for good fiction ... it's just the poor ''execution'' of them by authors everywhere that makes them so cliché.

* HotSkittyOnWailordAction / ShapeshiftingSquick: During her rant about half-human heroes, she says that as much as an author wants to just say "[[BellisariosMaxim don't think about it]]" when asked how the "mechanics" of it work, the author is the one person who '''should''' be putting more thought into it than anyone else.
* LanguageEqualsThought: In her rants on conlangs, she makes her opinion clear: language ''influences'' thought, [[{{Subverted}} but doesn't equal thought]].
