...it's still the 29th of October where I am as I write this. It's the end of Ace Week, but depending on your definition of "where your week ends", you may still have more than enough time to read this. You were probably thinking, "Hey, no Halloween post this year?" There is one, if you... Continue Reading →
Since things are getting back to normal after the pandemic, what experiences do you want to do before you kick the bucket (and vice versa)?
For my first in-person con, I got some good stuff and some bad.
I don't think I've seen this award before Terrance Crow tagged me... Meta note: I started this post, mostly finished it...and then left it for a while to finish other stuff, including putting out a 1st impressions post on Paripi Koumei which makes this post seem out-of-sync in retrospect. (Source: Crow's post, linked above) Rules... Continue Reading →
(TW for discussion of death, suicide, suicide ideation and trauma.) At age 14 - 15, I wasn't what you'd call a "chuunibyou" in an outward sense. Aside from sinking far too much time into Tumblr and TV Tropes...as well as anime, manga and fanfiction...I was pretty ordinary. That said, one of my stories from that... Continue Reading →

However, in a media-saturated world, how can you cull that backlog? Note: Since I know the reason people accumulate backlogs of unconsumed content is because they have a lot... Continue Reading →

Admittedly, my stance on the word "feminism" has been bugging me since 2015 or so, when someone asked me if I was a feminist. I said... Continue Reading →
"Everyone is in love." I kinda feel like I was being denied with this statement. Meta context: I started writing this post in mid-February 2020 (as indicated by the reference to Chibi Tamago, which I have since left behind) and laid my confusion about myself - "romantic and sexual dysphoria", if you will - to...

Inspired by a years-old post which still holds relevance to this very day. (It also contains a mild spoiler for Hypnosis Mic not addressed by Rhyme Anima.) Does liking evil things mean you condone them? This is a moral quandary which I still have to sit with, as an admin of a Hypnosis Mic server... Continue Reading →
In which discovering a podcast (on Wikipedia, no less!) helped a blogger put their own identity issues to rest. (...yes, the title is a Friends reference, although I don't watch much of that show in the first place.) I was reading about feminist translation - as one does in a post-grad course about translation -... Continue Reading →
