Okay, I've decided how I'm handling April and social media. I won't be getting off entirely, but I will be cutting down my social media time to 20 min a day.

That way I'm less likely to get caught up in/triggered by 'autism awareness' shit, and if I do get caught up in a triggering convo/argument, the timer will yank me out (hopefully before I've killed my spoons for the day.)

Hey, so, I've seen several folks talking about how coronavirus advice givers insist you should everything on hand for two weeks -- including your medicine, and how impossible that is.

I'm a small-scale prepper who has been working on getting a month's worth of medicine on hand for a couple years now. If you want to be able to have extra meds on hand for emergencies, here's some tips:

My friend is looking for queer filipino-american artists/content creators/media, especially from a transmasc perspective

Anyone have suggestions?

The sun is an eldritch horror.

Inconceivably old, will last for an equally inconceivable amount of time.

Effectively eternal from our perspective.

Looking at it directly will destroy your eyesight.

Unapproachable, at risk of complete immolation.

Incomprehensible and alien.

So when I read this story, I pictured a whole group of white people enthusiastically nodding and high-fiving about this being a GREAT idea.. and...I can't stop laughing.

A bunch of people thought this was a good enough idea to try it.

LOL

Character gender poll, HNSW, context 

At some point in my drafting, I switched from writing Trevor he/him to writing Tracey she/her. When I made the story a serial, I decided to run with it, giving the main character a different name and gender in each publication.

It worked well, i think, now I need to decide if I want to keep things how they were or turn the queerness up a notch.

Character gender poll, HNSW 

Last season of How NOT to Save the World, the Evil Overlord was man!Ma'eveoto in the newsletter and woman!Ameohne'e on my website.

Should I keep it the same this season or flip them?

I like the idea of flipping them, but don't want to confuse readers.

last line, The Bargain spoiler (minor), kink(phobia) 

And since I shared to original last line from The Bargain's season finale, here's the new last line:

That Crait, for some twisted reason, enjoyed the pain didn’t change anything. Right?

Show thread

Decided to kill the darling, so next week newsletter subscribes will get the season finally of The Bargain.

After that we'll be picking up Season 2 of How NOT to Save the World

Folks who want can get caught up on the troperific weirdness from HNSW here:

How NOT to Save the World is a near future science fantasy about saving the world, failing to save the world, 'evil' dictators, 'good' rebels, and impending alien invasion. Maybe.

Been thinking about chainmail a lot lately particularly since my folks finally were able to locate and bringing down all my supplies on their next visit. Here’s a piece I made back in 2014.

@Matt_Noyes If anybody needs help finding a local credit union in the US, you can check co-opfs.org/Shared-Branches-AT to find branches near you or message me and I'm happy to help! I work at a credit union and I'm proud of what we do.

Reasons why someone may not want pronouns in their bio:

1. Person doesn’t want to out themselves
Because of:
A. Abusive family
B. Abusive community
C. Not comfortable yet
D. Repressive government
E. Employer retaliation/abuse

2. Persons native language doesn’t have pronouns, and doesn’t want that linguistic imperialism shit pressed on them

3. Person is unsure of their pronouns

4. And more reasons I can’t list in the character limit. But you get the idea.

Friends, an easy step toward democratization of the economy is moving your money to a credit union. So let's say July 14th is Fediverse Move your Money Day!

In Japan this has been an important part of the fossil fuels divestment campaign by 350.org. When you choose a credit union, ask them about their investments (you'll probably be the first one to ask).

Please boost

Flights of Foundry, the virtual SFF convention I help to run, is looking for a new logo design!

Pay: $300
We're looking for a logo visually coherent with the Dream Foundry's (which you can see here dreamfoundry.org/ and also on the DF twitter twitter.com/dream_foundry)
We'd like to see portfolios - no concept sketches at this point! -emailed to leaders@dreamfoundry.org.

Please don't expect an immediate response - it will take a little bit to look through and make hard decisions!

Gardening tip:

Leave out bowls or plates of water near your gardens at night. A lot of the animals that come by and take a single bite out of a vegetable before moving on are doing so for the water in the plant, not the tasty fruiting body. Leaving water out has ended all incursions by rabbits and I didn't have to use any form of repellent.
