Uh. What do you do when the post you pinned to your profile is out of date? I guess you make a follow-up post with the correction, pin it and hope people notice?

Anyway, uh, in the above post, I describe myself as "cishet", but I figured out I'm actually pansomethingual? Only in the last, like, 8 months or so. I'm still a white cis man, so the thing about Privilege Mountain is still pretty accurate, though. But, yeah. :pansexual_flag:

@alis when you freeze it, you're essentially going, "all right, you: you've got to be in a proper shape now, everyone to their right place!" and they can't madly cling to each other anymore.

More space to move between, so less dense. :D

I have a magic rectangle. One side of it is metal, the other glass. Inside it are crystals of exceptional fineness, metal etched into intricate patterns, and traces of many exotic elements, all from different faraway lands. Symbols appear on the glass, and if touched in the right order, many wondrous and terrible things can happen. Just as often, they do not, and I have to spend an hour working out which part of the ritual I messed up.

If you're looking for a contemplative piece of WOC-led sci-fi, Fast Color is down to $5 on iTunes US at the moment, including extras. (Or $6 to rent =:)

It's not a rapid-paced production - much more about the *people* than their powers, and I'm so grateful for that.
