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.

‘It’s just a pigeon,’ said the girl. ‘Let it die.’

The boy lifted it with gentle hands. It was too weak to struggle. He could feel its heartbeat against his fingertips. ‘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.

How do people maintain alts and different social media accounts?

I've only been doing it for like an hour and I'm already confused and cross.

I mean, I intend to move properly somewhere at some point but even so. :blobcatflip:

Introduction 

Time to read other people's books out loud and hopefully get paid for it.

Ahh, freelance life.

how to celebrate #AutisticPrideDay:

• stop making so much noise all the time
• leave us alone, we're trying to get some dang work done
• don't accidentally give any money to Autism Speaks, it's a hate group
• ban ABA
• fuck the police

Anyway here's some wild tomatillos from our garden. We didn't plant them but they're doing really well. We've also got cherry tomatoes and peppers galore AND three years after planting the vines we're getting teeny tiny but very sweet little red grapes 🍇

💜 Non-binary does not necessarily mean androgynous
💛 It's okay to question your gender identity
🤍 It's okay if your pronouns change
🖤 Your feelings are legitimate

It occurs to me that the reason it's so easy to think about how we would re-write/re-tell a certain story (say, a given Star Wars movie) is that we've already had a lot of the work done for us. A big part of drafting is making versions of the story you then change. By working from what is, to our view, a bad draft, we only have to worry about the changes and not making it from whole cloth. That energy has been spent for us.

"Bad guys are fat" internalizes as "fat people are fat because of their moral shortcomings" and it reinforces itself and we get a new cycle of judgement.

Good morning fedifolk and tootfriends!

Today I wish you a gentle transition into the weekend ✨

Can I ride a giant cat while a regular-sized cat rides me? Yes.

This is a good game.

Calico demo:

Can I find a rainbow-hued magical cat? Yes.

Can I put that cat on my head? Yes.

Can we borrow the mayor's broom and fly off into the sky together? Also yes.

happy autism pride day ya'll!

Been playing the Calico demo on steam and it already looks wonderful. A world full of cats and dogs to be cuddled, played with, and even ridden if they are big enough!

I supported it on Kickstarter forever ago and I'm really looking forward to its release.
