i cant wait until my PC gets fixed no other computer is a computer i can draw with
edit: I LEFTthoughts -
im eternally grateful for everyone who donated and repoured to help me get away from an unsafe environment. i think we all want waterfall to be the kind of place where people can provide mutual aid without fear of targeted harassment by hateful individuals or groups.
and to those of you who happened to see my deadname:

you know how most people are like 'oh gosh i wanna just move to the forest and build a community there w my family and friends' WELL GUESS WHAT WE'RE doing
so a looong time ago our mom bought a piece of land in the forest and started paying it off gradually. we were in like, 2nd grade when that happened. and now we finally have a house and a half built! we're moving in around may.
me rambling about our island plans under the cut
no ugly villagers allowed <3
our name on the island will be jester, as is to be expected
i REALLY want raymond......... but its so unlikely.........
i want at least one cat, one frog, one hamster, one sheep, one of everything basically. we're going to have to spend so much time on this damned game
also clothes!! we're going to need the full jester outfit as well as making all of our fictives shirts from source. except baz, and simon. they dont really have an iconic shirt or logo. same with russel.
also, house. what kind of house theme should we go with!! on our moms island we went with kidcore/pastelcore but nOOO idea what to do with THIS mothsterfricker. maybe a studycore/light academia aesthetic? that seems like itd be minimalistic and fun. but also, booring. not much we could do with it.
uugh i have no idea what our houses aesthetic should be!
i think ive hit my peak funny. for context, I was gone for a full day
THIS TEXT POST IS WEARING A HAT TO TELL YOU THAT NOW THAT THANKSGIVING IS OVER, ITS WINTER HOLIDAYS AND GOOD VIBES
*O N L Y*
Ok but that "embedding a very small image into text as a smiley" also has some untapped aestetic potential.
Case in point:
check this out its so cute???? ♡
◦ • hee hee succulemce • ◦
look! just look at this!!!
✶ ◦ i feel like a gd five y/o this is so fun ◦ ✶
previous yule i gifted you my blood beating muscular organ, however you gifted it to another in the next 24 hours, this 365 days around the sun to save me from lacrimal gland water, I will gift it to someone deemed more worthy in levels of oxytocin received upon interaction with them than you
pagan religious talk under the cut. long post
and then thanksgiving said I would resist change, and the Christmas reading I did the other day said I would be anxious about a truth coming out, so???? that made me think "maybe the truth id be anxious about is coming to terms with working with a deity and at thanksgiving or around it i'd be resisting the change?"
anyway so I took out my tarot cards, turned them all upright, and I specifically remember putting the death card upright because its one of my favorite cards (in terms of design.) AND THEN I DREW THE DEATH CARD REVERSED?? yeah, sounds far-fetched i know but it happened.
so the death card reversed ALSO means resisting change, but I thought maybe it was also a sign for WHO was trying to contact me. so I asked my divination candle if it was hades trying to contact me, it flickered juuuust a little bit. so I thought, hmm, maybe its related to hades somehow?? and so then I thought of persephone. smart me, because I asked THREE TIMES and whoooaaa it flickered a LOT.
and the thing is, I used a circle each time so that I know its not another energy trying to fuck up my life. i just?? what. what the heck.
while writing this, I got images of persephone wearing a white dress and a blue scarf thing. that's weird!! really weird.
Announcing Inkwellstaff -
As some of you might have heard by now, AO3 has gone down a very dark path as of late, alowing users to write and upload sexual content of real, underage people. This is a significantly different matter from allowing it of characters from anime and such, but, from what AO3 staff have said, it's sanctioned. (TW on those links for pedophilia).
So, I'm here to announce today an acceleration of my existing plans, and introduce you to Inkwell!
Inkwell is a writing site, in a similar vein to AO3, with a few core differences.
What kind of stuff can be posted on Inkwell?
Fiction and writing projects of all kinds, including essays, character analyses, chaarcter profiles for your OCs etc. Original works, not tied to any existing fandom, are very welcome!
What stuff can't be posted?
Sexual content involving characters aged under 18, or stuff involving real people. Anything else is a go.
How will it integrate with Waterfall?
The plan as of write now is that you can post writing on Inkwell, and then, if you want to, cross-post it to Waterfall using a fancy button on the site. Then, it'll make a nice, pre-formatted special kind of art post for you that links to the site. Partly because the Waterfall format isn't amazing for long-form writing, and partly because Inkwell can have some formatting options that WF can't support. This forms the writing upgrade to Art posts.
The slip in the first sentence wasn't intentional but I'm keeping it because it's funny
When will it be available?
I need a short break for a mental reset from WF, so I'm actively working on this right now. Beta could be up within a couple of days - Patrons (https://patreon.com/thellere hint hint) may get early access with everyone else being let in later, if they don't vote to release it to everyone immediately.
AO3 has started allowing people to upload sexual content involving real minors. I think we can agree we need somewhere else now.
Yes, this is another spite project, though it was also planned months ago.
When will it be available?
It'll be available for patrons to beta test in the nexrt few days. Once we've worked out the major bugs, it'll go public.
Will the site defend our right to write fanworks as much as AO3?
Yes. I'll do everything in my power to protect the users of the site and, if I am being pressured about a certain work, that user will be notified as soon as possible in private so we can work together on the matter.
What sort of features will it have?
If AO3 has it, Inkwell will have it. It'll just take a little time, especially the tagging system - but we will get there.
Feel free to hop in the Discord to discuss!
