Three, two, one, cheese! One, two, go!

Good morning folk and friends from far and near!

Today I wish you the ability to pace yourself ✨

Hello all! I'm updating my commission prices to reflect where I'm now living. 💚

Feral/quad busts are starting at $40 USD, humanoid busts are starting at $50 USD. Color is +$10. If you're interested in fullbodies, or anything else, feel free to reach out to me and we can discuss.

I didn't recognize the alleged neighbor asking to borrow some sugar.

His robe and pointy hat would've worried me, if not for the vivid midnight blue, with gold stars glowing faintly. The tiny owl on his shoulder looked surprisingly real.

I'd never seen a cosplayer up close.

"Will stevia powder work?"

He pinched the bridge of his nose and nodded tiredly, accepting it then vanished in a puff of smoke.

Probably not a cosplayer then.

The supply ship entered orbit, the first in years. We converged at the spaceport and waited for the most important delivery. The shuttle ramp swung down, and a man in overalls wheeled out a carton of paper. Page after page of truly random numbers, writ small. Another identical carton stayed behind, parsecs away in our capital. A literal one-time pad.

Finally we could send encrypted messages to our loved ones again. We hugged the delivery man and thanked him for his gift: privacy.


Today’s card is the Queen of Wands, full of confidence, joy, and determination. It’s a day to inspire or be inspired - the Queen makes you feel like you can take on the world

I talk about fatness and how fat people are made unwelcome in public spaces both socially and physically.

It's a deeply personal post.

🌼 The Right to Take Up Space:

if you are a person who lives in a place with Cold Weather, i HIGHLY recommend lined pants and sweatshirts. Mine are sherpa-lined, my husband has fleece-lined, they're the best

If you’ve ever wanted to block someone but wanted to figure out whether or not they’d notice first, this piece is for you. I’m sorry it doesn’t include Mastodon.

happy dragon and kobold appreciation day!

remember all the good things that dragons and kobls are, and what you've done with them

every evening around 5:00 a flock of crows gathers in the redwood outside my apartment to scream at each other

I've started calling it the Twilight Caw

or maybe "that thing Minecraft villagers do where they meet up at the bell to gossip before bedtime"

The tavern had been grand, once.

Drink of the finest quality poured from its taps, and bards found fame there, often attracting other entertainers of similar caliber.

But owners and priorities change as history happens. The space grew quiet, lost among the new taller towers.

Still, it was cherished, as its network of secret tunnels allowed those who needed shelter or escape to seek it safely and unseen, when history was at it's cruelest.
