She saw on TV that ghosts made things cold, and she’d always had chilly feet at night.

So she found a stone with a hole through the middle and she waited under the covers until the chill made her toes curl.

Gently, she sat up, closing one eye and holding the stone up to the other.

Shimmering and thin as a beam of moonlight, the cat stretched and resettled on her feet.

She smiled and went back to bed, careful not to kick.

She’d always wanted a cat.

β€˜It’s just a pigeon,’ said the girl. β€˜Let it die.’

The boy lifted it with gentle hands. It was too weak to struggle. He could feel its heartbeat against his fingertips. β€˜It just needs help, that’s all.’

He nursed it day and night. Warmed it by a lamp, cleaned its wounds. Fed it from his hand. Every day it grew stronger. And larger.

After a week, it was the size of a cat. A month, a dog. It gazed at him with adoring eyes. And one day, it would carry him into the sky.

and believe me, you do NOT want to debate me. i am unparalled in intellect, reasoning and wit, and i WILL cry

Good morning fedifolk and tootfriends!

Today I wish you a restful moment ✨

Claribel Ortega's Ghost Squad dropped today! Drawing on her afrodominican roots, Ghost Squad is a middle grade book described as "Coco meets Stranger Things with a hint of Ghostbusters"

i'm giving away 2 copies of ghost squad to voracious little bookworms, so if you're the parent of a kid devouring every book in their path, lmk and i'll send you either an e-book or physical copy. for probably obvious reasons, afrodomincan families will be prioritized. :boost_ok:

have no fear! KITTEN.EXE is here!

*sits and bleps*

Am feeling motivated today though. A handful of people have been very kind about my writing and as you know, I am a machine fueled by praise. πŸ˜…

Also making good progress on Wyrden.!

Sorry for the delay, combination of stressful things and scope creep (this update is a bit bigger). But it'll be out this week and it'll hopefully be fun!

writing under pressure 

Book get! This one’s by our very own @vicorva! I’m looking forward to it , but it’ll be a bit before I get to it, though.

I ordered it through the online shop my local book shop is pointing people to. I’ve been trying to avoid using Amazon for books and was worried I wouldn’t be able to keep that up during lockdown, but here it is. πŸŽ‰

Good morning fedifolk and tootfriends!

Today I wish you satisfaction with something you're working on ✨

WoW with friends

Joh has started gardening! Which is wild considering we don't have a garden or good light or windows. XD

I'll go into details on patreon this week I think (with pictures!), but they're trying to grow potatoes in our garage.

We've also repotted the sickly succulents I was given a while ago. Hopefully we can give them a better life now they aren't in tiny egg cups.

Joh spends a lot of time running into the garage to check on the potatoes. :)

Joh and I played more games with our siblings, which we normally play in-person. The siblings were all on one mic which also gave feedback on our voices and the TV, but it was loads of fun.

I won twice in the deceit games thanks first to the heroic sacrifice of my little brother and next to the excellent lying of my little sister. There was a lot of yelling and laughing and all the chaos I expect from hanging out with my family.

I can't wait to do it again soon.

covid-19, kind strangers 

I entered the darkened room and waited for my eyes to adjust until I could make out a stooped figure in a high-backed chair.

"A visitor," they drawled, swirling a chalice of red liquid, "Care to join me?"

I strode over to the window.

"No!" the figure shrieked as I drew the curtains aside, bathing the room in sunlight.

"Hsss!" they recoiled, robes fluttering dramatically.

"Pat, put your wine away, you have conference calls to be in."
