Friends, I'm getting serious about sharing my fiction writing, and I'd like to ask for your support.

I've re-launched a Ko-Fi page, as the vibe is much better than Patreon, and planned an entire series of posts and excerpts, and even videos, to share the novels that I'm working on.

ko-fi.com/erosdiscordia

All the posts about my writing process will be free to read, always. But I would also put to good use any donations or memberships you'd like to give, too, especially right now.

Having modern-enough tech to get a work from home job, being able to keep studying IT and infosec (and a language!), even the hosting and domain to start building this fictional world its own online home -- it stays just out of financial reach, and that's frustrating.

Whatever you can spare helps, even $1 a month. And this time, I'm nervously excited to share something with you in return!  :ablobdj:

So if you like queer-centered science fiction and fantasy -- or even if you're just nosy about what my desk looks like this week -- please do stop by.

Boosts are appreciated!

I have a few reflections and advice on the 5-year anniversary of coming out as transgender:

1. The best piece of advice I got: "Your transition belongs to you." There are no true rules in this. You don't even have to transition, and you certainly don't have to transition to anything established, or understandable to anyone else.

There are no objective body schedules or social milestones. You are free to make up WHATEVER you want. And you are free to push for your standards to be respected and assisted. Transition belongs to you.

Outside of hard-and-fast medical numbers and safety guidelines (real physical safety, not gatekeeping bullshit), you'll encounter invisible rails attempting to direct your experience. It's alright to oppose this, and to call them out. But the core of your experience is your own, and that can't be taken away.

For any trans people who need to hear this:

Your body is beautiful. You're worthy of being desired, if that's something you want.

Whether you choose to transition (and in whatever direction you want), and wherever you are in that process -- you're seen, you are believed, and I'm proud to be your sibling.

When you look in the mirror, you deserve to hear, "Hey, Beautiful." If you don't hear it in your voice, hear it in mine.

Your strength is incredible. You come from a long tradition of transgender people, stretching back to the earliest days of humanity.

Let the haters shout into the void. You don't need to. The Void already loves you. ✨​

The third (and final) season of "Mo Dao Zu Shi" animated series, has been announced to start on August 7, 2021.

You ever get so excited watching something, that tears come out of your eyes even though you're not sad?

Go on, watch the three trailers that have been released so far, and tell me it doesn't look amazing -- even if you have no idea what this show is.

Sometimes I wonder whether people will get tired of me posting "Mo Dao Zu Shi / Untamed" fan wanking on main.

But how could you really mind?

i just bought a solar powerbank... so i can try putting GoToSocial on a raspberry pi zero w with solar power :P

When i lie down on the couch, Morph always wants to be near and/or on top of me. Here he is. He was trying to climb over my legs to get closer i think, but then gave up because he was mid-nap.

68 degrees and raining.

And I'm hit with Halloween vibes hardcore. :_candleb: :_penta: :blobwitch:

us politics 

Two parties in the US.

The party that wants to kill everyone and the party telling us the other doesnt really mean to.

Creative professionals: don't let people lowball you on one-off work. You're not generic and interchangeable. They're coming to you because they want what you produce. The correct response to "$200? But I can get this for $50 on Fiverr" is "okay, then enjoy what you get for $50 on Fiverr".

Since April, Antarctica has had an incredibly cool flag. It's called the True South flag and its meant to create a greater sense of community among the researchers and workers who call the continent home for parts of the year. It is in wide use across the continent!

me yesterday: *learns that the word 'detergent' is ultimately rooted in Latin dētergēre, to wipe off/wipe away/clean by wiping*

Today I turn 53. It's a prime number, so yay for that, but the idea that I'm 53 years old feels weird :)

My third blender animation ever. I'll upload the .mkv in a sec (the gif conversion really hurts the smoothness) but..

What I learned:

1. How to use array modifiers.
2. How to use random transforms on a mesh.
3. How to parent objects to the camera.
4. More about HDRIs (I don't think I like this HDRI).

Watching the 3rd season of "Mo Dao Zu Shi" today.

Boy, am I gonna have some Opinions once I'm all caught up. :amaze:
