Hello everyone. Just to warn you, I'm new to this platform, and wildly flailing around until I can work out which flail does what.

Word of warning, I occasionally descend into Britishness, with all the weirdness that can entail...

Pip pip, tally ho, etc etc...

I will pass on the unlimited rice pudding though. Horrible stuff.

@SakuraNoSeirei Hey there, welcome to Mastodon! Here's your first 🍍 .
Kudos on the SVTFOE profile pic.

@SakuraNoSeirei
mmmmmm.... pretty much anything that's not a plain digestive, which I find entirely unsatisfying...

@SakuraNoSeirei It's entirely clear that "wildly flailing" isn't the default condition even for long term residents.

@SakuraNoSeirei translation: some of us have been here a while and are still randomly pushing buttons and yanking levers, trying to figure out just how this thing works. :-)

@SakuraNoSeirei o-oh gosh, your icon--!, so uh, do you happen to know if there's a 'fanon' name for girl-Marco? (It wouldn't just be 'Turdina,' I'm hoping)

@kelly

I'm sorry, I'm really new to this so I'm not sure which pic is the icon. I'm guessing it's the square one next to my name, in which case I can offer only disappointment: It was posted elsewhere with no context to it, and I fell in love with the picture. It talks to me, and I'm planning on getting a tattoo of it. I just love the casualness of it; the arm drape, where the hand just ends up, and the fact that one girl is casually standing on the other girl's foot and neither care.

@SakuraNoSeirei oh!! Well I hope I'm not tarnishing your joy with context here, but that's Star Butterfly and Marco Diaz from the delightful American children's television cartoon "Star Vs. the Forces of Evil." I have now fallen down a Tumblr rabbit hole and found out there is evidence that what I'd dismissed as gender gags are intentional groundwork for the staff to portray Marco in canon as a trans girl, at least as far as Disney Channel will allow, and it's kind of blowing my mind right now??

@kelly Cool! Now I've got something new to watch. Thanks for infos, esp. about Disney. Blown my mind as well, and that hasn't happened since Nickelodeon and Korrasami.

@SakuraNoSeirei this is the show that got away with an on-screen same-sex kiss (in a crowd shot, but still) so I've gone ahead and set my hopes UNREASONABLY HIGH

@kelly and that's just boosted the show way up my 'To Watch' list to the number 2 position, so I'll see if I can start watching it tonight! (The number 1 spot is still being occupied by the Sense8 finale)

@SakuraNoSeirei enjoy, it's a romp! (As with most animated comedies, give it a while for it to find its footing.)

...wait, you mean the current final episode of Sense8, right? Don't tell me the finale leaked or I'll skive off RIGHT NOW

@kelly No the finale hasn't leaked, thank goodness. I am really looking forward to it though, and I've just started guiding my friend through the first episode, which was fun, if perhaps a little traumatising for him (we're both Whovians, so I'm not sure which shocked him more, seeing Martha Jones like that, or him seeing Jamie, looking at me side-eye, and me going, "I know! I wish my hair was like hers." 😀 )

@SakuraNoSeirei well I don't know Doctor Who but I CAN say I had an Intense Thing with someone who intentionally got her hair cut to resemble Riley which is part of the story of how I realized I was, y'know, Nomi

So hmm I'm not saying I tend to have unreasonably high expectations of entertainment, juuuuust that if new Sense8 content ends up changing my life there's past precedent there 😸

@SakuraNoSeirei

Always press the red 🅱️utton.

And make references to jorts. We like our jorts here.

@stolas

Hi, and beware of that unlimited rice pudding (it's a very British thing, although getting more traction worldwide)

*Warning: Link does contain a Doctor Who scene ;)*

@SakuraNoSeirei Don't like rice pudding, eh?

Dashed poor show.

Next thing, you'll be saying you don't want a big hot helping of raisin sponge.

@DaveHiggins

Ah, there's nothing like a bit of spotted dick. And by and large dick just doesn't feature in my life goals...😉

@SakuraNoSeirei Dick isn't really a goal worth having. The internet has so many it should be paying people to take them away.

@SakuraNoSeirei You seem to be catching on well so far? Enjoy the federated timeline, I don't think there's another feature in social media platforms quite like it.
