I've come to a realization.
I am a covert narcissist. I believe that I ought to be a leader. I believe my thoughts could shatter mountains. But I suppose I fail to show it because I assume everyone else is just as powerful, just as potent, given the right opportunity.
I may believe I'm deific, but so is everyone else.
A modern day pantheon of druggies sobbing in dark corners, lovers entangled in their own pains, and caregivers laying down the weak or young to rest.
I gladly worship you all.

This is very important! This is what lies past free software for me. This is a signpost and a warning.

So I'm writing a weird MLP 40k fanfic, which I think has a novel take on the concept. Two chapters so far, 2k words, check it out.


Drawing, RP, space station 

A space station that I'm drawing for a RP setting which, sadly, I have no control over besides contributing some detail. But I'm proud of the drawing.

If people want an open network, stop shit-talking open things 

I hear tech folks saying that RSS is dead, and people on social media saying that blogs are dead.

The problem with this is twofold:

- RSS is doing just fine, and not even remotely dead

- Blogs are doing just fine, and are not even remotely dead, either

There's this strange sort of defeatism around. "Well, we lost, so what can you do". Um, not undermine things that still work and are actively being used? Support them as well?

started a new mini campaign. players recruited by almost-bankcrupt noble to check out an elven colony in a far away colony

A close friend gifted me a plush Celestia. I have an intense desire to 3D print her a new set of regalia, but that requires me to learn how to use Blender.

Fiction, mental health 

I tend to be most creatively active when laying in my bed in the dark. I also tend to get more depressed at night. I know for sure that these two things aren't connected, but they lead to a deep self criticism of my creative works, and deep insecurity. My already poor record of getting feedback becomes a black hole that pulls in all my fantasies, crushing them.

Food, sushi, fried animal heads 

A very rare but wonderful occurrence, got to go to North Beach Sushi in San Francisco. By far the highest quality and most enjoyable sushi I've ever had, we only come here every great once in a while. But it's worth it.

Food, fried food, Chinese food, burnt food, peanuts 

So I got to participate in a family tradition for the new half of my family! Tim Gok Zai are sweet coconut and peanut fried treats. I burned a handful of them! But sweet charred pastry is still sweet!

Religion, joking about religion, 3D printing, damaged desk surfaces, Celestia the almighty 

Tell me, my loyal subjects, are you in need of a good or evil goddess today?

Snow coming down. It's beautiful, I haven't lost that awe for it. But it takes work to live here.

Food, meat, abuse of sauces 

Chicken white meat (ew) with olive bread, topped with pepper plant brand hot sauce, horseradish, and stone ground mustard. Not bad! Good dinner.

Raw meat, chicken, food, unskilled cooking 

So! Two whole chickens, seasoned with salt, pepper, ginger, garlic, cumin, chili powder. Turned out alright. A little too close to the element because I forgot it needed to be lower. So there's less even cooking, but turned out good! I like the seasonings too. All with olive oil drizzled and rubbed on first so it would stick. Next time, less water in the pan, and further from the top of the oven.

Driving to neighboring states always reminds me how much I need trees and greenery around.

Plastic, 3D printing, and a partial view of an aluminum can of soda or something. 

3D printing is fun. I like making D&D stuff that I won't get to use for years lol

@cult Any chance I could add Celestia emotes? hehehe
I know, just after joining and I'm already pinging the server owner, how rude!
