#introduction I used to do furry art, now I mostly putter about trying to get a novel writing project to completion. I'll be sure to meowntion it when I get one to a state I'm willing to let others read it! I'm raiding in WoW and casual-ing in FF14.

TL;DR can I get a boost here please? Does anyone know of a novel or stories about the staff of a Mysterious Wandering Shop? Can we get as many people to see this as possible?
The more notes I make on my Wandering Shop idea #TheFranchise the more ideas I have. I've got four characters, some rules, story ideas. I need to flesh out a fifth character.
The trouble is I'm worried this might not be original. It seems as if someone MUST have done this before...
Still looking for authors to join the July 'Friends not Lovers' promo for all spec-fic stories featuring strong friendships.
If you'd like to read a lesbian monstergirls comic (safe for work), walkingnorth (author/artist of Always Human) has started a new webtoon, https://www.webtoons.com/en/challenge/seven-days-in-silverglen-gl/list?title_no=775479
"Here's the plan," said the leader, the plumpest of the group, "To find a home, we need to overwhelm a human with our cuteness."
The rest of the kittens concurred, and began perfecting their flops, frolics and mewls.
They were bored within minutes and decided this meant they were ready. All they needed was a soft-hearted human.
They watched and waited until they sensed the right person.
Then the adorably smallest one was sent out first.
i think the article i read was this!
thank you all
"I can't believe how they managed to make a cartoon horse so Chinese. I bet her parents made her go to Horse Kumon or something every Sunday and now she still partly bases her self worth on whether she becomes a doctor. Just a bit. Even though she's an adult you can't completely let go of your horse grandmother in your brain nagging you about it. Even if you worked for the government. You're still an anxious Chinese horse. And every year is year of the horse now."

The other day I saw a poll asking “what made you stay at mastodon”. Choices were like “my friends are here”, “dunno, I just stayed”, or some specific good aspects of this place. That was rather ironic as my reason which is also most Chinese users’ reason, is not listed. To this English speaking world, it’s beyond imagination for many that people tooting in Mandarin would most likely call themselves “cyber refugee”. Because we had nowhere to go. Because everywhere was censored and we had to flee.
Pssst! Get your free and discounted science fiction.
The world was never enough, was it? These books dare to take you to the far off and different, even if it's still on Earth sometimes.
