    hello! wordy intro ahead. I'm having name trouble right now so Camber's fine but if you feel like making up/choosing a random name that's good too (if potentially confusing). I would say I'm pretty rusty at forums but that would imply I ever got the hang of them further than through warrior cats roleplay. In general I'm really into history, transformers, cool pirate shirts, folk & sea songs and joyful fanworks, and in specific right now I'm into medieval bestiary art (I'm doing a drawing thing for my doorframe), trying to sew cool historical gender-affirming clothing and making lemonade. mostly I just sit around being nervous about writing introductions though!

    Cool site concept, thanks for the easy-to-find intro threads.

    thank you! :) ooh my favourite kind is like, the standard 18th c men's shirt (it's like this but sometimes the cuffs are longer & the chest slit is more obvious. also it's about mid-thigh length. this is not a great image in retrospect but the google image results are dominated by men in artfully unlaced shirts in the rain and this one does have a wig). for me it rates high on Drama and Sleeves, both key components of the pirate shirt.

    question: is jumping in to threads okay? I know it probs is but brain be like it is

    Hello hello! We have a big ol' Transformers thread over here if you wanna join in on the fun there, and I'd love to see the drawing thing you're doing for your doorframe (if you want to show it, that is!)
    ninjaedit: Jumping in is 100% fine! The spaces of the forum that are nominally 'personal' spaces like vent threads in The Holler Closet will usually state in their first post if the owners aren't okay with interaction; otherwise, you should feel free to hop in wherever!

    thank you for the welcome! oh dear I really am fond of a few. may have heard them all already but: stan rogers' 'wreck of the athens queen' is a good time about drunken ship-scavenging, & his 'flowers of bermuda' is a good time about dying in a shipwreck (good to sing on long car journeys). learnt the mingulay boat song at Skye a few weeks ago - don't know if I like it because it's new but it is nice to sing! Alan Mills' version of Lady Franklin's Lament (called 'the franklin expedition' on spotify) is a good tune if you're into doomed arctic exploration :'P & of course 'don't forget your old shipmate'!

    very much the same to you r.e. song recs! I only just started going back to folk choir so I'm hankerin for tunes.

    i don't have a lot of recs since i'm very new to the whole scene, the closest i have is Santiano (a German band, but some of their songs are in English too). not all that authentic as far as i know but they've got some catchy stuff. a friend recently recommended alestorm to me, if you're into the metal side of things, i haven't gotten around to actually listening to their stuff. (the song title "fucked with an anchor" is promising though.)

    tis! thanks I‘ll def give them both a look! my current rotation is very much just english & scottish & english-canadian so routes to branch out could be really good.
