Anybody here keep meaning to reread #Homestuck? Or to read it for the first time and see what all the fuss is about?
@squeedoodle and I are doing a reread starting December 1. Plan is 1 week each for Acts 1, 2, and 3, and then the Midnight Crew intermission for the end of December. (I have ideas of how long it will take to read later acts, but want to see what y'all think.) Discussion at #HomestuckReread2020.
Let us know if you're interested! ♈ ♉ ♊ ♋ ♌ ♍ ♎ ♏ ♐ ♑ ♒ ♓
a philosophy of life
Learn what you can change; work to change it for the better.
Learn not to let what you can’t change destroy you; work to influence it in small ways that build up over time until you can change it.
Learn patience with the world.
Learn who you love; work to show them you love them.
Learn who loves you; work to show them you appreciate their love.
Learn patience with yourself.
Work to clear a space for yourself where you can spend some time not working.
Warning to #InteractiveFiction creators, someone is trying to get Itch.io pages taken down that include the phrase "Choose Your Own Adventure". The person issuing the notices, allegedly on behalf of Chooseco, has been reportedly difficult to deal with, and seems to be trolling/bullying smaller creators.

@chr Is something going on with Cybre.space the last couple of days? I'm seeing posts I see with all my alts showing up 10+ minutes later, sometimes longer.
Apparently losing to Oko in a cube draft makes me an expert on when to attack planeswalkers instead of their controllers
Story Three in my adhoc prompt call:
"There isn't meant to be a thief king!"
The woman shaking her fist at Krendal, King of Bathieran's Thieves, was about a finger-width from ending up face-down in the Bathar River by dusk.
But Krendal knew four things, and the first of which was listen to what people tell you, so he had not ordered her removal yet.
