My serial fiction project is underway! I spent longer that I would have liked getting everything set up, so the first part is shorter than I originally intended.
The title of the story is Voice of the Library, and I'll be tagging it #VoiceOfTheLibrary going forward. It's a fantasy story about a young dragon and the living spirit of a forgotten library. Have a read, it'll be fun.
All right, let's try this #Introductions thing.
Hi, I'm Terrana, and I'm a dragon.
I enjoy video games, particularly I with a building/automation theme. Factorio and modded Minecraft are favourites.
I enjoy science fiction and particular kinds of fantasy, particularly with a technical focus.
I'm an amateur writer but I have problems staying focused on projects.
I develop software and have Opinions about data security.
I like tabletop RPGs but have had no luck in finding one to join, so I GM.
Are you a fuzzyboop? Do you know someone who might be? Don't delay. Arrange petting immediately.

oh, no, it's not the fediverse, it's the averyverse
I've been kind of distant these last few days. I've been feeling socially overloaded – lots of stuff going on right now, especially with my new job about to start. Then I had a fight (admittedly a fairly minor one) with a friend and it was just... I need to take some time off. Thank you all for understanding.
Amusing quote, long Show more
"I might just be tired, but the part of the video description that said “Two thirds of the Earth are covered in water” felt like it was describing a post-apocalyptic scenario. I was like “Whoa, where are they going with this?” And then I remembered that’s just how the planet is? I think it is time to log off for the day, before I worry that 1/3 of the planet being covered in land is something that H.R. Giger came up with." – Brock Wilbur
I like when artists put their URL somewhere in their work. It makes finding sources much easier.
Ah, the hell with it all. Oat cookies and ice cream for lunch.
Oh, and it turns out that they don't make the parts for my (slightly older) mobile any more, so they're actually more expensive than a whole new handset of equivalent spec. That's nice.
Things which are not broken: my main computer. *curls around it protectively, growls at anyone who gets close*
Argh, why is everything breaking this week? My car window's stuck, my landline's dead, the wheels came off my wheely-bin, and now my mobile's screen has packed in.
Oh, hey. Nextcloud does calendar and contacts. Time to switch some of my software over.
