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 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.

First installment: voice.ninetailed.uk/chapter-1-

All right, let's try this 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.

Me, after fetching something from the garden shed: "I have returned from the Spider Zone, with loot!"

Me: “What flower do you associate with weddings?”

Husband: “Flying. Or thrown.”

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.

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.

@falkreon Indeed. It's also not a great idea to use red mushrooms with white spots as an ingredient in stew.

@Terrana True, I can't really reccommend electroplating fruits and vegetables with gold and then eating them

@falkreon There are lots of things in Minecraft that you shouldn't try IRL. For example, I can't recommend picking up molten lava in an iron bucket and carrying it around in your pocket.
