I need a cultural consultant for the Zulu Nation in the late 1800s. This is a paying gig, although the budget isn't much, for a #steampunk #ttrpg that's directly confronting issues like colonialism and imperialism, following the "punk" in the name of the genre. Those interested should contact andrew@fasagames.com for further information. #rpgs

'Needles, too?'

They nodded again.

In spite of herself, she smiled. 'Well, it's always exciting when someone joins the craft. I'll see if I can find something waterproof for you ...'

They curled all their tentacles up and slitted their eyes in delight.

They unfurled a tentacle, blinking their many eyes, and pointed at the brightly coloured rack behind the woman.

She gawped a moment, then regained her composure. 'You're here for yarn?'

They bobbed their bulbous, cephalpodal head, then pointed to the rack to her left.

I am fairly confident that being a CEO is like being the farmer on "Shaun the Sheep." You're nominally in charge, but the staff constantly runs amok and you have no idea what's truly going on. 🐑 🐑 🐑

Goth: The world is broken, but there's an odd beauty in the dark parts.

Punk: The world is broken, and I am angry, and I am going to fight to fix it.

Ska: Maybe the world is broken, but I've got a fucking trumpet.

i am bilingual in that weird way where i have gaps in my first language o.o

Lara boosted

This is a well-documented phenomenon but being truly, painfully, torturously bilingual means that I have the oddest gaps of vocabulary, the kind that make native speakers stop and go… “Wait I’ve never had to define this word before”

~was safe, as long as they were polite.

She'd had to rehome some who wouldn't play nice; she'd taken in dozens who did. Sometimes they didn't stay long, but usually, they did.

Lucky for her, whatever magic sent them also provided for them Today, a stranger'd handed her a winning lotto ticket that'd covered a month of food, litter, & toys.

She hadn't meant to become a cat lady, no, but if she was going to be, then she was going to be the best damned cat lady there had ever been.

Emma hadn't meant to become one of those cat ladies.

She prided herself that she was not
quite there; her house was clean & smelled fresh; it was just that you couldn't walk 5 feet without tripping on a cat.

It had started with just one, Abe. Abe still slept with Emma most nights, though he was growing old. He'd brought home a stray somehow, that was Minnie, and from there - either they multiplied when her back was turned, or every cat in the county knew her home~

The demon appeared in the summoning circle, foaming at the mouth.
"I am busy!" it roared, waving a toothbrush.
"Oh! I'm sorry!" the warlock said. "Uh... I'll call you again in ten minutes?"

The Wulver is a wearwolf like creature from Scotland. It was said to have the body of a man and the head of a wolf.
