Hello, mastodon :) I'm a historian specialising in the #history of the Caucasus & in digital humanities! I'm also a #writer, game developer (#gamedev), radical left-liberal, painfully British, living in #Vienna, #Tolkien + #DoctorWho fan, folk storyteller, and lover of obscure unusual animals, especially pangolins. Do say hello, or don't, or whatever you please!

#introduction / #introductions

I haven't done one of these with the new account...well, my name is Kara Dreamer, I'm 42 years old on paper but also a very new and naïve Seattle transwoman, and I talk about #magick, #chemistry, #Undertale, #chess, the occasional other game, and assorted other things.

I'm also a #plurality—that is, my personality has multiple foci, that don't remain entirely constant. @kel is my draconic familiar in this, and @chara is Chara.

@shen that sounds awesome but more importantly, why does your text editor have a combo meter?

Just started building my online customizer! I think I'll call it 😉. mastodon.hong.io/media/AQTX10B

Hey so, there's been a bit of a kerfuffle with Patreon lately after a terms of service change that threatens all sex workers

There's now an open letter to Patreon to please not do that openlettertopatreon.com/

The idea of folks losing their livelihood overnight for reasons I cannot see as justified is terrifying, and there's no Patreon alternative either.

Looks like is excluding a certain group of content creators from their network. Read about it!

I really think you guys will be interested in this lovely webcomic by Kristina Stipetic, an artist that lived in China for many years. She has a 🇨🇳 version right here:

alethia.kstipetic.com/comicmai

The best webcomic I've ever read. Bilingual, in both 🇬🇧 🇨🇳 !

"Abandoned by their creators, scattered groups of robots search for purpose in the factory-cities of their desolate world.
Though the robots differ dramatically in function and design, they share essential traits.
Drawing power from the common grid, they never suffer scarcity.
And the concept of violence is absent from their world.
What new ways of being might such creatures create?"

My professor asked me to write my post FOA reflection. He said it shouldn't take too long, only "two or three [mumble] words". I asked him "two or three million words"? He sighed, gave a slightly terrified look, said "no, no, Shen" and walked away 😆
