A gentle reminder about posting images:

Your fellow mastonauts vary in visual ability, and many rely on screenreaders. Please consider using the captioning function on your images.

Once you've uploaded an image, there's a text bar along the bottom of the thumbnail. Type a brief description in there (or a long one if necessary), so everyone can share. This doesn't count against your character limit.

shitty behavior, but polite 

I've been listening to a new story podcast, Moonbase Theta Out

First season is actually one character sending communiques that tells a story. Each episode is fairly short. There is a version that is all of them together.

Season 2 gets more interesting with multiple voices from characters we've had described.

Of the characters we have:
- A gay man
- A trans man
- An Aro polyam woman
- A cyborg who's a member of a triad
- A character using xe/xir pronouns

Plague Knight, they called him. And why? Sure he had created biological and viral agents and subsequently weaponised them for his own profit -- Oh.

Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows continues next.

Whoa! Apparently some of Andre Norton's sci-fi books are public domain! I read Time Traders back when I was a young pup...really cool! :ET_wolf_goldeyes:

If science fiction/fantasy is not for you, it's not for you. But if you liked the idea but gave up on it because it was the province of straight white men, let me recommend you take another look: the Hugo and Nebula award candidates are full of amazing stuff like N. K. Jemisin's Stone Sky series, Yoon-Ha Lee's Machineries of Empire, Aliette de Bodard's The Tea Master and the Detective, and Naomi Novik's Spinning Silver.
