My friend just suggested that I start a cult instead of attempting to date anyone again. Who wants in?

@Julia Thunder & Lightning, Android Netrunner, Pandemic, Ticket to Ride... I'll probably think of more later.

@lapis I submitted it to like....everywhere last night, but when I went to search on the one that said it was definitely through (Pocket Casts), I couldn't find it either. Sigh. Must just take some processing time.

@lapis I should probably stop jumping on things to lead. >.>

But.

I kind of can't believe we don't already *have* a YA book club and I will absolutely start one if no one else volunteers.

Podcast is up!!!!!

I'm so happy, everyone.

We'll be recording every 2 weeks. This time was a Chilling Adventures of Sabrina comic, next time we'll talk about the holiday special for the Netflix version, then we jump into the first season!

@lapis Ahhh I see. No, I read one at a time typically, I just have them lined up so the next one's ready to go when I'm done and I don't have the "but what now???" sadness. Currently I'm on What If It's Us.

@lapis Is it gonna be a lot of emotions? I don't know a whole lot about either of them except I keep hearing that they're good.

If so, I like reading things that break my heart, it's all good. πŸ˜†

Books I plan on reading this month:

Ghosts - Raina Telgemeier (My sister got it for my birthday *last year* and I still haven't finished it. No idea why, I love the author. Just keep forgetting it in favor of other things.)

The Prince and the Dressmaker - Jen Wang

What If It's Us - Becky Albertalli & Adam Silvera (It *was* on my list to start next year but I want it NOW.)

We will defeat fascists with magic. Straight up. It might be fist magic or political magic but it's how we win.

@lapis For more info, we're both religion nerds who have gone through a *lot* of religious changes since we met.

I was raised Baptist and have a *ton* of trauma from that, so I know that's going to be a part of how I approach it.

I've also been a devotional polytheist and some of the devotional aspects of the show are just wonderful.

And then I have a graduate degree in religion so I'm just really interested in the mechanics of creating one, what the liturgy and theology must look like.

@lapis Satanism and magic(k) are pretty wide, variable things. I've known several types of Satanists and none of them have much in common with Satanism as portrayed in fiction.

But yeah, we are talking mostly about Sabrina to start. And I am *so* excited to talk about that statue.

Interesting, what sorts of things about those? Just general related history?

BookToot Club

A place for sharing and discussing books. After suggesting a Mastodon-based book club and getting a lot more interest than I expected, I decided to make a place specifically for facilitating that. So this aims to be a home for creating and organizing book clubs and read-alongs.

Not just for clubs, though. Like books? Want to talk about books and read about what other people are reading? Congrats, you're welcome here.

Well, with some restrictions. No hate speech, threats, etc. See our rules/code of conduct for more of that and general posting guidelines.

Not looking to join a new instance but wanting to join in the discussion anyway? No problem, just look for and use the hashtags.

This instance also now has its own Patreon page to help with the basic costs and maybe even (if I'm being very optimistic) help it grow into more. Check it out if you're willing/able to consider helping me out that way.

Thanks for stopping by!
