Crawled out of bed. Spent a couple hours in front of the computer finishing a commission. Looks pretty good, hope the client agrees it's done.
Now to decide what to do with the rest of my day. Catching up on dishes would be nice. So would having some food, so would be getting some exercise. It's pretty cold for hopping on my bike, and will be for the next few days. Hmm.
Hello music-player skin Olivia, it's been a while.
I got mentioned in a retrospective of Audion skins over on Panic's blog: https://panic.com/blog/facing-forward/
Well that worked out well, I managed to persuade them to refund the whole thing despite a policy of "if the game's been downloaded we will never refund you". On something my PS4 autodownloaded. With no switches anywhere in the settings that say "never auto-download shit".
I wonder how big a line item "scammy/accidental purchases we didn't refund because they were auto-downloaded to your PS4" is on the Playstation balance sheet?
When I was finishing Erin Morgenstern’s “The Starless Sea” I had a sudden urge to pull up the High Priest from my Tarot deck and rework it so that the central figure is my fursona. Perhaps I will do this tomorrow.
Also I am not sure if I thought “Starless Sea” is actually a good book. Like her previous work, it has very pretty writing that it is very much in love with but I just never felt too close to it.
dragon.style admin stuff, new rule re: ban/block evasion, with note regarding multiple systems
Awrite, I would like to thank everyone who weighed in with suggestions on my desire to make a new rule that says "hey if you are a multiple system, please note that that bans/blocks apply to your entire system, not just whoever was fronting in the offending interactions".
Right now I am going with this:
[you may be banned for] evading bans/blocks/no-contact orders via multiple accounts, on this server or others (multiple systems please note: this applies to all accounts belonging to all members/systems/headmates of your system)
You can see it in context at https://dragon.style/about/more/ - it's number 14 in the list of Things That May Harsh Anthracite's Buzz, right above "giving me cause to make this list longer".
Multiple systems on here/following me, please let me know if this comes off as offensive. I'm trying to use the language choices I saw coming from y'all but I might have gotten it wrong.
(Also I would like to note that the person who made me decide to add this is not anyone on this site. Nobody here is currently in any danger of invoking my banhammer.)
Whoops. I got the kind of dye that you mix with developer instead of the kind of dye that is an entirely separate step from bleaching. Also the kind of dye that comes out of the tube as a pearly white and slowly turns into the desired color as it mixes with the developer.
This will do for now but it'll make color variance harder, I'll have to go get a few tubes of the other kind of stuff because I like creating gradients in my hair!
Hopefully I am still gonna end up with RED hair instead of pink, at least.

Well. It’s official, the House and Senate only objected to one more states’ vote count last night after picking up where they were interrupted in the middle of debating the first objection, and those objections were both shot down. All hail President-Elect Milquetoast.
Meanwhile turmp released another statement wherein he STILL insisted that the election was stolen but that okay ugh yes Biden is president now I guess can I have my twitter back. Really I hope the rumblings about another impeachment and invoking the 25th amendment still go through so it’s harder for him to try to, I dunno, storm the inauguration with a vanguard of qanons waving the Confederate flag ahead of him or something.
(Autocorrect changed qanons to “wankery” and I was sorely tempted to leave it at that.)
I fully expect him to try some more bullshit in the next two weeks. I really hope that all of this is the sound of America scraping the bottom and beginning to bounce back up towards something better than we’ve ever been.
dragon style admin, new rule workshopping, comments please, especially from multiple systems
I have had a few multiple systems show up around here and I am generally chill about this. But I have had a bad experience with a multiple system containing multiple assholes, who is prone to ignoring no-contact orders because they insist they only apply to one personality. This is a dick move that I do not want coming from my site,
Something like “If you are a multiple system and someone tells one of your personalities to leave them alone, assume it applies to everyone in your body unless explicitly told otherwise” is the sentiment I want. It needs editing and I am tired after a long day and I also only have one personality in my skull* so I have no idea if that sounds pissy.
Nobody on this site has given me any cause to create a rule about this, y’all have been cool, but I would like to have one. How can I best word this?
* mostly, there’s been a few experiments and maybe a few examples of getting minor divinities to lightly ride the inner Magician, also I rebuilt a lot of my personality from the ground up during transition, but basically there’s just me in here.
Okay so the MAGAs interrupted the first debate over whether or not they were gonna debate a state’s electoral college votes, right?
So far 4 GOP senators who originally said they were gonna dig their heels in and drag every technicality in have stood up and said “okay fuck that, lets just confirm Biden and be done with today” instead of giving lengthy speeches about wanting to investigate all these supposed “irregularities”.
If you want a list of who said they were gonna try to block the confirmation, this is one that was updated yesterday: https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2021/01/04/electoral-college-certification-republicans-object-joe-biden-win/4042776001/
