Almost all of it is hopeful. I like to see beauty in ugly or shunned things.

I toot awkward true stories in storytimes.

I'm very awkward but do say hello!

She brought him the usual gifts at first. A mouse, a bird. A ribbon for him to play with.

She would run up with her gift in her mouth and prrt cheerfully around it. And he would pat her head and tell her she was a good and clever cat.

Then it was a coin with strange markings. A pendant, warm to the touch. A piece of lightning-struck wood.

He never knew of the shadowy figures that followed him, but neither did he have to fear them.

She was a good and clever cat.

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.

'Don't!' She reached out to stop her, but woman only smiled.

'It's alright. Truly.' She crouched beside the thing of tentacles and claws that crawled from the lake. She rubbed its bald, water-slicked dome; it gurgled and chirped.

'See? Just because you don't understand something, doesn't mean it isn't good.' She tickled its tentacles; it squirted water.

'I suppose not,' the other replied, staring at the woman as if she, too, were a strange and unusual thing.

look, just from a pure game-design angle, the fact that picking human as a character species is inevitably like the most dead-ass boring option tells me that games should just stop making human an option at all

Writers looking at crowdfunding, I have now closed the survey and written up the results!

It's a bit messy and there are things I would have done differently, but I think the results are still useful.

Also, if you plan on crowdfunding your novel, feel free to message me if you want to talk it through!

I have lots of work that desperately needs doing today but also I just want to write microfiction and give people magical creatures again.

... guess I need to get started on this work if I'm going to have time to do that.

Good morning :tootplanet: and tootfriends!

Today I wish you space to breathe. โœจ

Okay, so @katrani pinged me to go on a lengthy rant about the excessive prominence of Irene Adler in Holmesian adaptations, so I'm going to do that.

This will be an unlisted thread, starting from here, so expand this to read them all. No promises for speed or well-organized thoughts, and I will CW any toots which wind up being super shouty. *cough*

Oh my goodness, thanks so much everyone. 92 responses! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

"How does a living ship eat?" I asked nervously, gazing around the interior of the the sea vessel in question.
"Not sure, honestly. But we think it's what's kept the gull population down. And we've never had a stowaway... but that's PROBABLY just a coincidence."
The Captain laughed at my face, but stopped when she saw me blanch.
"Ah, be calm. You're a guest, she'll take care of you."
She stroked the wall beside her and the ship purred.

Can tell I'm in trouble with the familiar because he's roosting next to me with his back to me.

If he's not staring creepily at me or looks like he fell asleep staring creepily at me, I have angered him.

He's hungry and it's not dinnertime yet. This is how it has to be.

It makes me so happy when people toot about how much they love their cats/drop everything when their cat sits on them, etc.

Keep up the good work.

(Sorry to keep pushing this. I really do appreciate all the answers, advice, and signal boosting!)

So far, leaving the house has been successful. I am definitely getting a bit antsy though. Shall return home soon to my den and my cat.

I have to leave the house today.

I don't want to.

I DON'T WANT TO.

But I kind of want to.

Good morning :tootplanet: and tootfriends!

Today I wish you time to be completely yourself, without expectations. โœจ

I forget who it was on :tootplanet: who was looking for Scrivener but couldn't afford it... you might be interested in AtomicScribbler, which has nearly the same features (a bit simpler, which can be a blessing!) and recently went entirely free: atomicscribbler.com/
