One of my friends commented earlier that reaching out when one needs help is complicated by feeling that others have too many problems of their own.

So, I've decided to leverage my situation.

I'm doing well. Do any of you need to talk?

Pondering gaps in .

If you wanted an entertaining read about a future that differed from this world in one aspect, what are you having difficulty finding?

A different attitude to race? A new default on gender/sex? A specific political structure?

Not saying I'll know how to write it well, but I'd like to push my boundaries in a way that produces greater social good if I can.

Some period tracking apps will share your data. Stay safe, use one from @fdroidorg without Internet permission.

Possible options are:
drip (safest!)
Periodical
log28

All of these apps don't ask for internet permission and thus can't share your data. Drip goes the extra mile and explicitly opts out of Android's backup framework so your data won't be backed up on Google servers.

Please boost for those who need it!

The first fairy cat is finished. Finally was able to sculpt the face I wanted (after a dozen unsuccessful ones you start to "see"). Now I want to redo the wings. They look pretty rough right now.

My day moves forward with grace
The moon like a bell

"We have been summoned to serve you," said the succubus.
"But first we must interrogate you, human," said the incubus.

The human shrugged, "Ok?"

"Do you need: a hug, help with filing taxes, or a pet held for ear-drops?"

"No?"

"Are you requiring: extra players for a game, help getting figurines painted, or life-drawing models?"

"No, I expected we'd have sex?"

"Oh thank Our Dark Lord."
"Speak for yourself I like painting figurines."

Treasured Trouble: A Collection of Short Stories from the Treasure Chronicles by Jordan Elizabeth

“Elizabeth builds a series of short stories around the characters and histories of the protagonists rather than new aspects of the world, creating a collection that offers depth rather than event-of-the-week style diffusion.”

I'll never get tired of posting this: A walking robot with the BGs "Stayin' alive" in the background :robot_3:

Frigid heat scours
Fingers shielding avid eyes
Dust from time worn stone

A most fine mix of melody and edge for this not-holiday.
