Since the URLs have changed a bit, let me reintroduce this.
Voice of the Library is a fantasy story about a young dragon and the living spirit of a forgotten library. I'm writing it piece by piece and posting it on my site.

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.

Well, crap. I'm getting evicted. I don't think there's any serious risk of homelessness, but it's one more stress I don't need.
"... the Renaissance or, alternatively, Europe finally getting around to importing the Islamic Golden Age."
Huh. People are actually starting to realise Tumblr is crap? Took them long enough.
Referred itches are very unpleasant. Curse my malfunctioning nervous system.
Overheard: "Who's a cute little birdie? You are. Yes, you are. Yes, you are. Don't argue with me, damn it!"
Good morning, fellow sophonts. This is certainly an internet, isn't it? Today I am enjoying carbohydrates.
December. Truly, Fimbulwinter is upon us.
Approximately 6.5% of all the humans who have ever lived are currently living. This lets you do some amusing statistical silliness along the lines of "83.5% of people with <common attribute> have died!"
Isn't it nice when you look at a piece of software or other tool, start to say, "I wish it could..." only to suddenly discover that it actually can?
"I can't exactly call evolution stupid in this case, but it is certainly inconvenient to me, personally."
It's kind of a shame the Penrose "impossible" triangle is so cliche at this point, because otherwise it'd work very well as a personal logo for me.
Important thing to remember: it is entirely possible to fully understand a point of view and still disagree with it.
Meta, content warnings Show more
“I’m not tagging this because it’s important” is really bad. Most of what people put behind content warnings is important.
The whole point is to allow people to engage with important things in a way that respects their finite energy, finite attention, and mental health.
Nothing is so important that you can’t respect people’s limits and boundaries.
