So hey, quick reminder that I write short stories sometimes!

Most of them are horny in one way or another, but not all of them. I try to mostly write positive and feel-good stuff, and for me a lot of that comes from kink. You can check them out here if you like:

And if you enjoy them, absolutely let me know! I love hearing people's comments!

Me, to my partner, who is an inkling: Hey, remember when I said the house should be covered in goo so you can swim in it and move faster?
Xem: Yeah?
Me: That's slime travel

Thank you Sirlin for giving me the opportunity to do this

Yomi 2 stuff 

There is a character in Yomi 2 that I really want to like but just doesn't click with me, and I'm apparently not alone in this, they just feel weird

I've taken a crack at redesigning them, and from what it looks like, the result is kinda fun? Obviously needs a lot more testing, but initial impressions are good. I'm very happy with this, I put a lot of thought into it

Anyways this game is really good and I recommend it if you like HARD puzzle games

Like, not ridiculous, just very hard

Toki Tori 2 ending 

... I think? I got to the credits at least, but I never opened that door that requires the four mechanisms. I have no idea what could be there

Still, I'm satisfied with this

I usually feel very frustrated with the process of contributing to open source software

Because I've never done it, and I WANT to, but it feels like the process is fighting me every step of the way. People say "just pick an issue" but like, what issue? How does one know which issues are best for that? And when you do, they say "leave a comment when you take it so we don't duplicate work" but like, I have no clue if I'm going to be ABLE to solve it, let alone how long it's going to take, it makes no sense to claim it for myself if I'm not going to be able to do it. That's not even counting that I have no idea how long it's going to take me to study the structure of the codebase to understand how everything fits together, or if there's something obvious that I missed

Elden Ring, lewd bad 

Okay I'm pretty tired of the exactly two jokes that the Souls community seems to know, but I gotta admit, the spike pillar thing with a message that said "If only I had a giant... but hole..." got a giggle out of me

Here's a quick reminder that "wanting attention" is usually presented as a bad and shameful thing but there's nothing wrong with wanting attention, it's good and healthy

Yeeeeah I think I'm done, I don't think my brain can take more than five pages of troll conversations

Oh wow this is. This is pretty bad actually. These troll people are extremely not fun to watch interact

I'm going to give it a chance because what came before this was just THAT good but if it doesn't pick up soon I'm thinking I'll just drop it entirely

A Dance of Fire and Ice 

So the only lanterns in the game I'm missing are the red ones in Emomomo and in Nope, No Hints Here EX. I don't think I'm ever going to get these two, it's a miracle I got THIS far

Show thread

A Dance of Fire and Ice 

Anyways today I got the red lantern in One Forgotten Night

Which means I have all the lanterns in the main game! Except for the red lantern in Emomomo. Which, yknow, no

Stolen joke 

"Emily" is just the way I do things

Example: "I have socks!", it said, emily

@trysdyn If you keep using GTS for a while, I'd be interested in knowing how your experience with it ends up being, compared to Masto/Pleroma! I'm also thinking about setting up an instance

Also I'm glad the recaps exist because I really hadn't understood half of what actually happened
