that moment when you completely throw out the initial roughs for a page because you want to utterly change the mood it creates
Oh hey thank you all very much for the weird cartoon porn the other day, it really helped clean out my brain after going digging in the drama mines.
Adds an additional privacy option of Local, which only sends the toot to the Local timeline and local followers.
Option to approve a follower without sending them locked toots. Instances without the feature fall back to rejecting the follower request.
Currently just has roleplay-voice styling.
Bless you, anonymous Wikipedia contributor who drew the assorted clefs found in music staves and posted it as a SVG. Bless you. You have saved me much time.

anyway I should have some breakfast
and holy crap I just wanna go move into a cave and delete all my social networks except for dreamwidth or something, yes even including this place, "microblogging considered harmful"
and it developed this culture of just reflexively *acting* without *thinking* because actually thinking about what you're doing on twitter is *fucking hard* due to the inherent limitations of the system
because you can actually emit a coherent, nuanced fucking *thought* in one fucking *go* and you can even sit there and think for a moment and *edit* parts of a larger thought before you put it out in the world (and fix typos!)
And in that moment I found myself really appreciating Mastodon, and moreso really appreciating the generous character limit I've set in place on dragon.style
and, well, dear reader, I just skimmed right over that. Maybe they had something worth saying, maybe they were just saying the same old same old, I'll never know.
and a newest-on-top timeline (modulo all the Algorithmic Bullshit)
which of course you have to read backwards i chunks of about one or two sentences because Twitter has a stupidly harsh character limit
I was looking through Twitter just now and I came to that one person I follow who regularly posts long rambling Threads
RULE OF THUMB:
Rendering a web page is a very, very complex process that involves implementing some very complex specifications with lots of potential edge cases to get wrong.
If websites look funny when you're using a web browser whose version number is less than one, it's probably the fault of the browser and not the site.
Starting to feel like fall here in Seattle. Light coats, grey skies, pumpkin spice, sweaters, all that cozy bullshit mammals say they love. I hate it so much. I’ll be in my cave if anyone needs me, wishing I’d never left the tropics.
Oh geez I might have finally finished the current Forever Page of Parallax. There’s a couple things I could add but it works well enough now.
Hey I'm looking for an artist who can illustrate a fursona for me, if you know someone who's open for commissions let me know!
You never see billionaires sponsoring another season of their favorite anime, for example.
Damn, this page has finally started to feel close to Done. I just need to bullshit in a couple more weird plant-factory parts, add in some connecting pipework, and do some shading to fix the contrast problems this panel currently has.
This page has taken seventeen forevers. Admittedly a couple of them were spent on doing dragon.style updates; it's good to be back to work on art again!
“You can’t miss it, it’s the building with the glowing cobra heads flanking the door.”
Behold this absolute unit.
this weekend's furry masto drama and my official response as the admin of dragon.style Show more
Okay so apparently what is up is this:
The admin of snouts.online said some stuff about a couple of people on awoo.space who are the subject of a long-running harassment campaign by the Kiwifarms idiots. This was bad enough stuff that the awoo admins defederated from snouts.
Awoo is currently the biggest furry instance, so naturally users on snouts were not happy; some began screaming about how terrible awoo is for "harboring pedophiles" in an attempt to get their friends on awoo to leave it.
Said "pedophilia" was apparently committed by the *ex* of these two people, and also consisted of being barely legal and hitting on people who were barely not legal. I am not sure if there was ever any actual sexual contact and I really don't care.
Why the fuck does anyone ever listen to kiwifarms, why did they listen to its precursors like encyclopedia dramatica and ljdrama, seriously those sites are always full of seriously broken people collecting piles of excuses to hurt anyone they can, I have not heard of anything good coming from these places in my entire time on the Internet. Please take everything coming from those sorts of places with several mines worth of salt, know that everything on there is spun to create maximum anger.
The snouts admin has however posted a very hardline "hey don't hang with drama-stirring sites ffs" admin notice: https://snouts.online/@Ace/100694030130863320 so maybe this will end well? Maybe. Who knows.
I think my job with respect to dragon.style administration is pretty clear: do nothing.
And go out and get some sun. I've been indoors all day.
hahaha I am starting to get replies to my request for summaries of This Week's Drama which is, as I suspected, turning into stuff I really just am going to be made very sad by trying to disentangle, and then the Silicon Dawn bot comes up with [the Chevalier of Cups](https://dragon.style/@silicondawn/100696977227791483) and: yeah I think I just need to go spend some time in the isolation tank before trying to parse all this and maybe set up a nice healthy emotional buffer with some chemicals.
