Pinned toot

Came here after seeing the posts on fandom-after-tumblr - curious to see if this might turn out to be a real alternative... I'm shirasade pretty much everywhere - Tumblr, AO3, Pillowfort, DW (inactive), previously LJ.

Someone on TMS commented 'Shippers are the lowest form of "fans".' (scarequotes and all) - I couldn't help myself I had to reply (asking to please not generalise, especially bc shipper are majority female and/or lgbtq and often dismissed out of hand). Which of course was a mistake, because nothing gives me worse social anxiety than getting negativity in my inbox. When will I learn?

TFW someone suddenly changes their avatar and then you don't know who the hell you're talking to.

Fell down a research hole because my part of the round robin I'm organising will be based Hinemoa & Tutanekai (famous story). Knowing how important names are in Maoritanga, I just spent over two hours searching for acceptable ones. Help, folk, are Kahu & Manaaki ok for pre-contact era? @vamp @wheeflop @nubreed πŸ‡³πŸ‡Ώ

On the plus side, while reading up on the story, I found variants of it with a takatapui (Maori version of ) twist. Interesting... I suddenly have options! :)

Spent a fun hour at the police station, thanks to some fuckwit ordering stuff (men's clothes, size xxl😏) in my name. The weird/unsettling thing is that they sent the stuff to my home address (sth I rarely do bc I work), which means they know when the mail carrier comes by & grab the parcels. I only have 5 neighbours in my building, so this is an uncomfortable thought.

Heh. I saw a post from fandom_stocking@dw that they were still looking for a handful of stocking stuffers - and somehow I ended up 900 words of fic. That on top of the 500 words on my wip that I'd already written. Go me! :)

(And it's not even my old X-Men OTP... Wolverine/Rogue was my first *big* online fandom, back on yahoogroups, but the fic I wrote today is Logan/Scott. Let's hope the recipient likes it, as I totally winged it. *g*)

I found an interesting app that should prove useful for #fiction #writing. It is #FLOSS freemium software for Windows, MacOS, and GNU/Linux. The interface is really nice, and I can see it being very useful for keeping track of characters, story ideas, etc.

Huh, having said that - now I got a follower notification, and fandom.stopthatimp.net showed up under "authorized followers". And voilΓ , I can see my own toots on hubzilla, yay! :)

Okay, I tried again to follow myself from ... This time, after creating the connection, I got this message:

So, does that mean, there's something in the settings of fandom.ink?

Things I've done at work today: written fanfic (on ). Messed with . That's it, more or less. πŸ™ˆ

Actually, I think you might have to accept the connection for me to be able to see you over there... Please? 😘

Don't be confused if you were just followed by @shirasade@fandom.stopthatimp.net - I'm trying out Hubzilla. πŸ€” Feel free to follow me there! 😁

It's been years since I last saw one, but I decided to organise a for my dear OTP - don't think anyone here ships it, but here's the info post with my starter anyway: pillowfort.io/posts/434347 :)
