As fondly as we will remember them, let their ghost not visit us.

Musing about attraction (3/3) 

Attraction, to me, is about seeing someone's spirit regardless of the interface that connects-and-separates us, be it a pair of screens or a pair of bodies. Show me your joy and your sorrow. Show me your /aliveness/ and be beautiful in my eyes.

Cat: Fundamental disagreement with moderator. Opening dispute resolution process.

I would like to start spreading the word of good books with excellent depictions of dragons. Not necessarily dragons who are "good" but who are more than an evil force. Reply to me with the hashtag #ReadingDragons if you have a recommendation!

The spiritual practices of this fox 

Whenever I see a missing animal sign while I am walking, I pray, "Look up, little one. Look up and remember where your home is." And I look up and remember where my own home is.
If you are ever lost, remember to look up.

Gender experiment: Trying out he/him pronouns for a while, to see how they feel. ('They' is always an acceptable fallback option.)

"Nah I got dysphoria really bad last weekend and it hasn't stopped."

"Aw jeez. Are you gonna have to transition?"

"Probably. It's like one minute I was getting drunk and the next minute I realized I don't have boobs. And I still don't."

"Sounds serious. I have some old skirts that might fit you. Should I bring em over?"

"Yeah, thanks"

"Will do after practice. Get girly soon!"
