Say What?! - The Many Faces and Meanings of Said (Requested)
First, let me clear up a rumor. Said is not dead. Said is very much alive. It’s a clever little word with an awesome ability - it can become invisible. Of all of the books I’ve read - and I’ve read many - I’ve never been jolted out of the fictional world because someone said something. That being said, it’s sometimes nice to switch things up and use different words, especially to convey a certain mood. That’s where this guide comes in. I’ve grouped many said synonyms into moods, and within those moods I’ve ranked them by how much emotion they convey. Onwards!
The Scale - little emotion, medium emotion, big emotion

Pained

yelped, groaned, whimpered, cried out, howled, screamed, shrieked, wailed, bellowed, roared

Scared

squeaked, gasped, whimpered, stammered, screeched, shrieked

Understanding

Begging

beseeched, begged, implored, pleaded

Arguing

grumbled, huffed, countered, argued, disagreed, retorted, agreed

Other Ways To Say It

quipped, raved, sputtered, squawked, asked, answered, explained, inquired, posed, pressed, called, pried, whispered, proposed, yammered, queried, interrogated, replied, breathed, croaked, requested, murmured, responded, retorted, suggested, prayed, purred, hollered, blurted, mumbled, sighed, complained, jeered

"If somebody had told Steve he and Bucky would end up raising Bucky’s clone as their son, he’d probably have- wait, no, he wouldn’t have done anything, because nobody would ever have said that.

And yet. Here they are.”

— Baby You Should Stick Around by Febricant and Neenya

You guys, it’s done! We have had so much fun doing this! We’ve put 33k of kidfic on the internet, had endless hilarious chats and emailed each other damaging photographs in the process, and I’m emotional about it. I’m an emotional garbage person. Neenya is amazing.

I’m not the first to make this joke and by god I won’t be the last

OH MY GOD

AMAZING

i do not have to choose between beauty and bravery.
there is no correlation between my bust line 
and the size of my heart.
i am both a woman and a soldier,
with all the more strength because of it.

whenever someone says “bi means two so *biphobe noises*.” i like to imagine them biting into a jellyfish and being remarkably surprised to find they are neither made of jelly nor fish

'Are you introducing young children to the occult?' said Madam Frout suspiciously. This sort of thing caused a lot of trouble with parents, she was well aware.
‘Oh, yes.’
‘What?! Why?’
‘So that it doesn’t come as a shock,’ said Miss Susan calmly.
‘But Mrs Robertson told me that her Emma was going round the house looking for monsters in the cupboards! And up until now she’s always been afraid of them!’
‘Did she have a stick?’ said Susan.
‘She had her father’s sword!’
‘Good for her.’
