writing is just talking to yourself, and roleplaying is just talking to yourself but with other people

Shower thought: I have tweetdelete.net nuking all my tweets older than three months now.
What if this was built into Mastodon?
👉🏾 let the user have toots get set to listener-only/direct instead of deleted
👉🏾 maybe an option to mail some kind of archive to the user before they're deleted (make sure this mail doesn't get cached on the instance's side, as an admin I do not want to have to keep track of any more of your private info than I absolutely must)
@anthracite Idk, it's weird because all the trans ladies I know always play girls, and the trans guys in the thread... also play girls. Part of it may be that playing a girl is an escape from expectations of traditional masculinity that often seem to permeate games. But there are some pretty damn objectified women in games that you'd think we'd be uncomfortable with.
It could also be novelty: it's rarely fun to play the default.
But I feel like this deserves further examination.
@anthracite I mean... I care more about species than I do about gender, I've noticed. I'll never play a human if there's the option to play something else. But I've noticed I also rarely play guys and I'm not sure why?
I can kinda sympathise with the other person who said "dude characters in games are ugly". But I think it's also partly that if I'm going to get invested in and emotional about the character, playing a girl gives them some distance from being Me(tm).
I'm doing my first ever livestream tomorrow (Friday) evening!
If you like, please come watch me stream FF4 randomized!
I'm excited to try the randomizer (thanks to @PrincessRaspberry for telling me about it).
There will surely be spoilers, but don't worry; Aeris doesn't die in this one. n_u;
Starting at 5 PM PST, I'll be going all evening and probably late into the night, so if you have some time, please drop in and cheer me on at
Side note if anyone has good art for lizardfolk and kobolds, particularly lizardfolk and kobold children (woo NPCs), @ me.
@machariel @mysidia Everyone in my FC has been talking about how terrible WoW's gotten lately and how XIV is overtaking it, so if you're looking for a place to switch to... (Psst, I'm on Mateus, if you're looking for an RP server. Mysidia is on Midgardsormr if you're looking more for raiding/endgame.)
Rather adorable - the Autostraddle staff explain the significance of their favorite plush companion(s):
For years, Mattel marketed a Barbie typewriter. When they switched from mechanical to electronic typewriters, they chose to license from a Slovenian manufacturer, Mehano, who readily supplied their E-115 (and later 116-118) model.
But these typewriters had a secret: hold SHIFT and LOCK, and press one of the first four keys on the first row, and the typewriter switches into substitution-cipher mode, encoding whatever you type:
