    ...oh, hell, I just realized this Tumblr nonsense means I should probably mirror the various ficlets I have on my blog to AO3, and that means... *scare chord*... titles.

    Here's a new problem: trying to relocate someone who quietly dropped out of the only social media circles I knew how to find them on who did some nice fanart on some of the posts I want to mirror to ask if I can include said nice fanart so it doesn't fall into the void if Tumblr implodes.

    Also I may have unwittingly offended them and I don't want to pester them if they're mad at me, but I don't actually know if they're mad at me because they didn't say anything when they disappeared.

    Tfw you show someone your art and they're like "I spotted this mistake over here" and you're like "...that was intentional.".

    I know I'm just starting learning how to draw, and I know I can't expect to be happy with everything yet, but why does every girl have the exact same face??!? I started with different proportions and geometrical shapes for their bases, for goodness sake, they shouldn't end up looking like twin sisters.

    Yet another idea I had which I'm not sure how to work. What's a good idea for dividing two human groups by physical features that real humans don't have? I don't want to divide them into real human racial groups.

    What do you mean by "physical features real humans don't have"? I mean, it can be as simple as Angel Wings Over Here and Devil Wings Over Here, provided you make sure to pepper that unreal feature across the entire cast without heavy bias (all white characters getting Angel Wings, for instance.)

    There's always the staple of "Mary-Sue-style ridiculous hair and eye colors/patterns," like Final Fantasy X having an ethnic group with green eyes with a spiral in them. Or you could go more inventive, like the ethnic group in the Stormlight Archive distinguishable by foot-long eyebrows.

    Podficing is hard. Doing voices is hard. Editing is hard.

    ...Okay, editing is tedious. Still.

    brain fog finally lifted, brain so full of good ideas for my writey project, can't sit up long enough to work because my spine is a bastard.

    i could theoretically write a novel lying on my back. but they don't make scrivener for ipad and typing on a touch screen is balls and i don't wanna.

    TheMockingCrows Resident POTSie potato.

    i forget precisely what its called but i know it exists. it's a table that hooks your laptop safely in place and tilts it as needed almost upside down so you can type while flat on ur back. i've seen some bedbound folks use it when they were stuck fully flat.

    Have you heard about right angle glasses? I'm conflicted about whether I want to try them, and unsure how comfortable they'll be, but I've been eyeing them for purposes of reading/writing in bed
