I got a little behind in my comics reading and just finally read "Crowded" issue 9 today. It continues to be soooo good!

It's pretty violent and sort of depressing in a similar way to "Bitch Planet" (it's exaggerated for satire, but it never feels far off). So not for everyone, but I'm enjoying it a lot and it definitely makes my "things to read now that WicDiv is over and the world feels empty(er)" list.

Also thinking about/writing *that* made me realize that when I've written fiction in the past and had characters who thought/acted like me....I probably *was* writing autistic characters but never would have thought of describing that way?

I got diagnosed early but wasn't told what it meant and for soooo long and didn't really get it till I met other autistics.

So I guess I would write/have written autistic characters by just trying to write a relatable everyperson? XD

Looking for book recs for and came across one about an autistic character. Written by (as far as I can tell) a non-autistic writer.

I'm happy for representation but don't really trust NT people to do it?? But then I was thinking "huh, maybe I should write a book instead" but like. I don't know how to *write* autism, it's just my life? I don't know how to fictionalize it for other people, I don't know how NT thoughts and experiences differ and what would be worth describing.

I've been thinking I want to start making zines, but it's a bit intimidating.

So I'm starting with something super easy for me - a Fall Out Boy fanzine. Not sure if I'll ever share it, but it's definitely something that I can just pour out thoughts on without feeling the need to stress and edit myself too much. A good start for practice, at least.

@lapis was one of those Nancy Drew's Mystery Podcast? nancysmysterypod.podbean.com/

It's not strictly a show recap podcast, it actually started with book recaps, but it was on hiatus for awhile and now she's recapping the show. I only listened to the first but it was pretty focused on the CW-verse, only brief mentions of the books.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (comic), very mild spoilers, demonology? 

cw's nancy drew, queer rep, spoilers 

I told my mom my Halloween costume (werewolf Jughead, like my current avatar/icon-thing) and she's like "wow, I can't see Jughead as a werewolf. Let's see, who from Archie would be a good werewolf....Ooh, Veronica!"

"She has her own series where she's a vampire."

"Oh. Yeah, that fits."

Sometimes I forget my mom was the one who gave me my first Archie comic and we might actually share that interest. Hmm.

Finally read chapter 1 of this comic which I did not know was a webcomic because my local comic shop sells it in paper form in the zine section and that is where I found it!


It is pretty good so far.

Looking for trans voices/opinions.

The next episode we're recording for Spooky Church is on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina chapter 15: Dr Cerberus's House of Horror.

One of the three shorts in this is a pretty horrific body horror type story centered on Theo's dysphoria. I relate to it a lot and think it's good, but I'm just one voice and I'm curious how other people responded to it, especially other trans folks.

Boosts welcome.
