Pinned toot


25+ person (they/them please)
This is my book, podcast, and TV account. Riverdale tooting is supposed to happen on this account, but it usually can't be contained!

Fave books: The Book of Lies Trilogy (Agota Kristof),
Song of Achilles (Madeline Miller)
Wayward Children Series (Seanan McGuire)

I run which I hope to resurrect this year if there's interest.

Storygraph is in the profile, I'm also on if you happen to be!

I hold the distinction of being one of two people (at least in the Western World) that have read both Brave Story and the Book of Heroes, both by Miyuki Miyabe.

For obvious reasons (especially if you've seen the Weed Is Life shit go down) I'm locking this account. I'll probably approve most of y'all but better safe than sorry.

".Yukio Mishima, probably the best-known Japanese writer in the outside world,"

I uh..... I don't say this lightly, Wikipedia, but I would say Haruki Murakami is more well-known than Mishima regarding writing. (I'm not saying it's right)

I think most people would only recognize Mishima from the coup attempt...

Writing World Problems 

I've been keeping it quiet on this account but I'm due to have a short story published later this month.

But it's made me realize how broad the definition of writing is.
You put down a goal in for a writing streak, and start counting things you didn't intend to count, because AFAIK you can't count two things as one goal.

So does editing count as writing?
Does Checking the web proof count as writing?

I have 30 days of a "writing" streak, supposedly.

Cancer, begpost 

Friend of mine is selling a bunch of his gaming stuff to cover medical bills of another friend who has liver cancer due to radiation exposure. Details at link. ebay.com/sch/gothstuff777/m.ht

Non-book or TV or podcast talk 

I got back to trying to untangle that yarn "pile" I had (don't ask because I don't know). It's... surprisingly relaxing. You'd think "oh god I gotta make a ball and it's all tangled and a MESS" but no, you just take your time, and I suspect it gets easier the more of it you have untangled. Untangle yarn today!

abuse meta, "positive" effects 

Reminder that people who mistreated you get no credit for any skills or positive traits you developed in response to mistreatment; that was your own resilience and ingenuity in response to a bad situation, not something they did for you. The line that bullying and abuse build character or make you a better or more capable person remains a giant, harmful lie.

Valor: Swords anthology.
It was my gift to myself for doing well in piano discipline. Then USPS lost the first copy but Hiveworks mailed me another!

Riverdale S4:E19 

I didn't know Jughead was plagiarizing / ripping off a novel. This is all the more reason he should not submit this to University of Iowa

Okay. I know it's a story, but it's EXTREMELY FUCKED UP to use Reggie's trauma as a vehicle for your story. You already had a fight with Betty about this earlier this season.

you had a fantasy about WATER BOARDING HIM. punching him a few times isn't really any worse, you guys.

Riverdale S4:E19 

Okay, Jughead, sweetie? When you write a story about KILLING YOUR HIGH SCHOOL PRINCIPAL it gets you a trip to the counselor's at best (what happened to her anyway?). IT IS NOT GOING TO GET YOU INTO A BFA PROGRAM.

Okay Reggie has a much better plan. I'm sure Honey could get you back for this though

Show thread

Riverdale S4:E19 

I know Mr Honey sucks but "maple-boarding" him sounds really fucked up.

You are literally torturing him. He's a dick (and a pervert) but I have yet to find evidence he should die

Jughead. No offense, but you could not get into the University of Iowa's writing program. I don't believe you. They have standards, and you are a Really Bad writer.

I remembered I had a goodreads account, logged in, and remembered I hate goodreads

Hey, fediverse!
I'm obsessed with reading. Especially wlw books. I'm super introverted, maybe too introverted.

I was on another instance, but I was never active. I hope to be more active here. 😅

It can and it works GREAT and no one can stop me I am going to research ALL the things!

whatever, I'll spend all my Biden Bucks on that (this is a joke, I am saving most of the money on necessities)
