content warning etiquette 

Pinned toot

Once more for the people in the back:

Put content warnings on your politics posts. I come to Mastodon specifically to avoid the horrible things in the news.

I don't care how urgently you want me to see it. In fact, adding a content warning will make me *more* likely to care, because it will give me time to brace myself.

And it could be yours if you tune in to Desert Bus this November! More details as they become available!

Major publishers are a major pain in the ass to libraries when it comes to eBooks:

smartbitchestrashybooks.com/20

"86% of the ebooks from that list have to be repurchased on a regular basis, most commonly after 24 months, even if the book is never checked out."

"The average price of an ebook that has to be repurchased is $49.48."

Publishers are he fucking worst with their eBooks and libraries are taking it in the chin.

Ah shit its bi visibility day, which means i take a massive sneak debuff until the days out. Gotta remember to put off a few quests til tomorrow

Reminder that Seattle public library has ebooks and audiobooks you can check out online. Also they're doing curbside pickup right now at 7 locations for physical items (books, CDs, etc)

showing up with a mask on your face visibly is a lot fucking more than some folks out there.

you're helping support masks as a social norm, and so there, you're absolutely doing your bit

Good morning folk and friends from far and near!

Today I wish you kindness for and kindness from ✨

having a cat is just going "why does my cat do *annoying behavior*" and then learning that its a way for cars to communicate that they love you and being like "oh 🥺"

"Wait," he said, "you read fantasy? On your profile it said you read science fiction."
"I like to read both."
"That makes no sense, you either read one or the other."
She gave him a look.
"Are you serious? Genre matters much less than the quality of the story."

Bisexual Visibility!

In honor of Bisexual Visibility Day - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celebrat - for the next week, I'm opening up for prompts on any of my extant characters - any character who is either canonically bisexual or who is not canonically monosexual or asexual.

(I'll take prompts on bi-romantic ace characters as well).

(Please prompt at the site for better tracking sanity for me)
