I don't joke when it comes to mixing language features. So while I wait for that AO3 response I'm writing a case for <ruby> support to submit to four forums I'm in.

I did my homework: compared to usual annotation tags bbcode forums have, ruby/furigana:

* resolves completely client-side
* gracefully degrades to inline display
* is well-supported standard
* is more accessible than eg.: "spoiler" tags that need clicking
* works in flat render modes (print preview, RSS, etc)

Just finished this week's Behind the Bastards on the Colonia Dignidad and it is a very heavy one

I've filed a bug report on AO3 to see if they can enable <ruby> / furigana annotations in the production render, since it works in the post preview render. It would be awesome to have this feature to add eg.: *inline* pronounciation annotations for uncommon or made-up words, something that often comes up in the world of fanfiction.

I'll report on results starting next week.

Friendship ended with LibreOffice Writer, Apostrophe is my new best outline and drafting friend.

(Not that LO is any bad, Apostrophe is just much focused on what I need at a lower cost)

If your doesn't have room for empanadas, you really need to sit back and think it over. I'll wait.


H’aanit from Octopath Traveler:

- can equip multiple weapons, such as axes, bows, etc
- comes from a community aware of its role in nature
- has her own friend/pet monster
- can hunt and capture monsters
- builds her own team of six monsters
- goes into battle alongside her monster companions
- can learn skills from human companions


H’aanit is a combined Monster Hunter/Rider. The best of both worlds.

Thank you for coming to my TED Talk.

The young magic creatures listened intently.

"To be a familiar is a sacred obligation," croaked the ancient toad, as wise as they were rotund, "So take your time revealing yourself, no matter how eager or tempted. You must know the mage your existence will be dedicated to."

"How many mages may we be courted by?" asked a kitten.

"As many as possible."

The kitten scampered off excitedly; there were many saucers of fish to sample.

The dragon observed the travel-worn king, bowing his head of silver-streaked hair.

"Why do you seek me? I have upheld the Royal truce for centuries."

The King lifted his gaze up to the dragon, "I have an excess of sons and daughters."

"The truce states I no longer take royal children."

"You misunderstand, o dragon, please, take me."

"And leave your wife to rule and raise your offspring alone?!"

"Absolutely not! She's right behind me."
