Hello, need money for trans related clothing (~$100?), food I don't have to cook myself b/c it's exhausting dealing with that (~$100), for fabric b/c my kid wants me to sew them a cape (~$80) for Halloween, and bloodwork laboratory fees that my insurance doesn't cover nearly enough of (nearly $400 owed plus 3 more sets of labs need getting done)

I have just rediscovered this toot, and have no recollection of what story it was, what the crossover was, or whether there was in fact an ARG.
ROMAN SOLDIER: halt, strange person! where are you from?
TIME TRAVELER: i come from the future. what are your names?

TIME TRAVELER: my name's LIV
ROMAN SOLDIER: [starts counting on his fingers as his eyes open in fear]
"Listen," she said dryly, "I know how this is supposed to go. The knight gets past the dragon, rescues the princess and they're supposed to–"
"–get married and everything, yeah," the knight finished. "It feels clichéed to me too."
"The truth is, I'm sure you're lovely, but," the princess considered her words, "I'm only into women. Sorry kid."
The knight was silent for a while. "I should be truthful too. I'm not a man. You're the first person I've told."
mental health/coping mechanism
I've found something which helps a little with executive dysfunction!
For me the hardest thing is the shift from a "nothing" filler (e.g. social media feed refreshing) to doing something else (drawing, playing an actually-entertaining game). But there's always a moment, when I finish doing something, that I'm actually doing *nothing* instead of just "nothing", and if I can just *catch* that moment I can do something else.
Now the trick is to just do that reliably.
the important thing about this perspective is that it indicates a really important thing about gender identity, which is that it can have multiple discrete elements at the same time and still be one thing

It's no masterpiece (what ever is?), but it takes a clearly-rushed JRPG riddled with plot holes and poorly-thought-out systems, where nearly all the NPCS are total nonentities, and turns it into something with a story and people you can care about, all while staying close enough to the original to not need to actually *cut* anything.
I really have no idea how to properly express how I feel about this game. The game itself is not great. In fact, it's quite bad. But the idea at the root of it, that the world will end, you have to write a new world to replace it (magic book), your changes show up in the game... that's excellent, and then this LP is something else entirely. It's like fanfic, but even more closely tied to the original in some ways, weaving new narrative and plot point between existing screenshots and dialogue.
Not re: current events, maybe you'll find it cheering.
Avalon Code. DS game, interesting idea, poor execution. There's a really good LP of it over at https://lparchive.org/Avalon-Code/ , though – very interesting bit of writing, like fanfic but not. He takes the game and supplements with his own writing to make it make more sense, and put some personality in the characters.
And then? He reviews the game, in the form of an ~800 word *Cat in the Hat* parody. It's a good one, too! https://lparchive.org/Avalon-Code/Update%2073/
