how big are we

One of my favorite things to do in life, is to sit outside at night, in silence, to look at the sky, where you can see all the stars, where you can see the moon - how beautiful it is. Forgetting about everything that’s on my mind because I’m amazed by how big the universe is, and how small we actually are. And in that moment, nothing else matters.

They are all good stuff ^ ^ but seriously, i want to do some big work too, like, BIG scale work. How about we each choose something to do together?

I am currently working on something BIG that I hope will be somehow recognizable in the fandom and not only. Something less fan-like, more “iconic”, if you know what I mean.

Dear Ais, I just sent an ask but something weird happened and don't know if it got sent or not so i'm gonna do it again just in case :D. I recently bought Evenfall vol 1 and 2. They look so good in my bookshelf that now I want the next three books there XD, Are you guys planning to released it in paperback sometime in the future or... do I have to kill my hopes? Haha. Thank you.

I didn’t get it :( :( So I’m glad you sent again!

Aww thank you for buying them, that was sweet of you! I love having them on my shelf too, ngl. Ashley did an amazing job on the covers, so that I always feel like it looks really cool with the bright tonal colors standing out. I also forgot how big the books were until I had to find my copy when we were updating the book info so that it could go on Amazon.

So tbh, I’d actually like the other books on my shelf too ^^; Seems like it would be kind of fun to have them there as a set :)

I would definitely say you don’t have to kill your hopes. I think we both would like to get to that point as well, and we’ve talked about it for years on and off. The biggest issue is just the editing that is required to get there. We had originally had it in our heads we’d be able to do the editing last summer but that didn’t work out, and I have no idea when it will happen now. (btw there wasn’t some dramatic reason behind it not working out, we just didn’t really end up getting a chance to do it. Takes a lot more energy to work on those things now that we’re both doing solo stuff, although Sonny’s approximately a million and twelve times better at productivity and doing solo things than I am XD I wish I could get productivity through osmosis XD But anyway because of that, the DC versions of ICoS just didn’t really work out for timing and energy last year.)

In terms of do we still hope to do paperbacks for all of them? Absolutely, so don’t give up hope entirely :) I just can’t tell you when it will be, and I feel bad about that :( 

For what it’s worth, this year I want to try to do everything I can to be able to focus more on writing. There’s been a lot taking a toll on my energy levels and emotions the last few years - nothing dramatic, but you know how life can just drain you further and further until you’re constantly working out of a deficit and it’s really hard getting anywhere like that. I’m really tired of it by now. So this year I want to figure out a way to set myself up for a better situation, where I’m not constantly fighting to try to get energy to even be interested in doing creative things I usually loved doing, and where instead I can just jump straight into creative work when I have the time like used to happen when we wrote ICoS 10+ years ago. I mention that only to say, if I can get that shit all figured out, I feel like that will help improve our chances further because that way even if Sonny’s crazy busy, I can do things on my own to get things going. But right now for me, there’s no way of that happening. I can’t even finish editing my own book right now because fucking depression is just the other side of everything I do, and it’s frustrating as hell, and tiring as hell, but hey, I’ve been through this before so I think I can get through it again. So I don’t want to make any promises on that front because I also really want to keep working on Wildwood Rising, I feel like there’s a lot of fun story in there and I want to be able to get more f/f + m/m + LGBTQIA+ fantasy out into the world to add to the already great works out there. But when I’m excited about life, I feel like I am more likely to be able to do both things instead of neither. So that’s my hope for the future, and if we can get to that point, the chances of those paperbacks greatly increase, and the timeline for that sort of project should become a lot steadier and shorter too :)

criminitly, somebody take the internet away from me. How do I always turn a simple “yeah!” answer into a million pages long ugggghhh

Thank you again for your support and for your continued patience and interest! I really appreciate it! <33

hey @ goyim could y'all reblog this if you're actually willing to listen to Jewish people and protect us?

we really need allies right now, and I know seeing this on people’s blogs could be comforting to other Jewish people. But please don’t do this as performative allyship- actually try and help us irl, or at least learn about antisemitism enough to spot it and call it out.

I’m running a canned campaign in a sci-fi setting

Totally not-shady NPC: I’ll need you to retrieve my secret cargo from the abandoned spaceship, but it’s very private, so don’t look inside–

Player: Is it a girl in a box?

NPC: …What?

Player: This is a sci-fi story, and there’s a box you don’t want us to look into. There’s only ever one way that ends, and it’s always with a girl stuffed into a box.

Other Player: Hey, we don’t even know how big it is. It could just be a cigar box.

First Player: Okay, you’re right. It could be a bunch of sex toys. How big is the box?

NPC: It’s… uh… six feet long by three feet wide by three feet deep…

First Player: Ugh. Okay, fine. Somebody pack a crowbar and a spare set of women’s clothing. We need to go get this girl out of her box.

I spent the whole evening listening to the Beauty and the Beast soundtrack and couldn’t control myself.

It seems that way, doesn’t it?

So like I have one big question about human weirdness.

How did we figure out we can eat what we can eat?

Like who was the first guy to figure out if you boil those weird sea bugs (lobsters are arachnids I know i know) that runny gunk under their shells firms up and is edible? And delicious!

How many people did one village go through before they figured out which part of the pufferfish won’t kill you? And also WHY?

How much experimentation did it take to go “Okay that mushroom is really yummy and tastes like chicken and is safe but that mushroom that looks almost exactly the same will kill you dead.”   ?

Who was the first person to look at an alligator - that ancient and terrifying descendant of legit dinosaurs -and go “Imma gonna eat it!”  ?

Like how did we figure that out?

amazing but true: they are all the same species

your bored-at-work Mass Effect thought of the day:

The way Krogans make fun of humans on the battlefield ought to be a lot more indulgent sounding than it is. Next to Krogans, humans are probably one of the most warlike races in the galaxy.

“But,” you say “what about the Turians. They’ve got a whole government-religion thing around war.”

No they have a whole government-religion thing around the military which is totally different. They do the whole conquering, compulsive-serving thing, squad mentality, which is great during a war but I wouldn’t call that being warlike. They’re too obsessed with rules and regimentation as a general, like. Thing. They’re about that stuff.

Humans, however, are ready to throw down. They’ll meet you in front of the Krogan memorial statue for an ass kicking. They’re ready to pull hair over someone sliding into their partner’s dms. They’re ready to fuckin go

If Krogans are like mastiffs, bred for war and muscle, humans are those little yappy dogs who are ready to fling themselves into a fight without regard to life or limb and are fully convinced that they’re Big and the Boss. Krogans should absolutely complain about how squishy we are but I’m begging u, bioware, let it be a fond complaint. I want to hear a krogan companion watch me biotic charge myself into a knot of enemies and yell “Look at ‘er go! Atta girl!” and then admonish me to remember my armor more often.

“The baby needs to live in a warming and cozy place, Lily. Right now, by place I mean inside your belly, so I need to stay really close to you… You know, just to help you getting a little bit warmer…” 
We look pretty silly but it’s so cozy in here that I actually don’t care.”
“Take a picture of how silly we look then, Moony.”

Sharing a big sweater was James’ idea to protect pregnant Lily from the cold. A fun and happy Christmas for the young Potter family in 1979. I hope you all have it too!

Happy Holidays!
