Congratulate yourself for doing difficult things, even if they might not seem difficult to others.

I've edited up my first stream!

I start with a bonus chest in a world with no trees.

It's the start of what has become quite a big project. It has chill music that makes everything I say sound poignant 😂​

Would appreciate boosts if you feel like you can!

@vicorva You're in a fight with an orc, draw your sword... "Damn, it's two-handed. Could you hold this while I roll?" You hand the orc your sword, roll, and grimace. You put the dice away, take the sword, swing it, and theatrically miss. You look at the orc who pats at their clothes, and grins sheepishly. "Damn, I left my dice at home. Shall we defer it?"

@vicorva I just stumbled over this tweet (in German) and I had to think of you.
I'll try to translate it:

My head is doing weird stuff.

“It’s Terry,” said Terry. “‘Ere. That [story] you sent me. Are you doing anything with it?”
“Not really.”
“Well, I think I know what happens next. Do you want to sell it to me? Or write it together?”
“Write it together,” I said, because I was not stupid, and because that was the nearest I was ever going to get to Michaelangelo phoning to ask if I wanted to paint a ceiling with him.

A guide for non autistic people on how not to support ableism in April 

Autism Speaks is bad, they want autistic people ‘cured’, otherwise known as eugenics. They are non autistic people speaking over us.
There are more horrible things AS do but this would be a very long post if I included them all.
Do not support or promote them.

ABA is a form of torture to force autistic people to mask our behaviour. It is not a helpful ‘therapy’. Even if someone didn’t have a bad experience it doesn’t negate the people who have been traumatised.

Light it up blue is an autism speaks event.
Light is up red is an autism community event in opposition to AS speaks.

Autism awareness is an autism speaks phrase. Autism acceptance is an autism community phrase.

The blue puzzle piece and puzzle pieces in general as a symbol are a red flag. It’s from the idea us autistic people are ‘incomplete‘.

We speak, sign and vocalise for ourselves. We do not need any NT people to communicate for us or decide our needs and rights.

I entered the darkened room and waited for my eyes to adjust until I could make out a stooped figure in a high-backed chair.

"A visitor," they drawled, swirling a chalice of red liquid, "Care to join me?"

I strode over to the window.

"No!" the figure shrieked as I drew the curtains aside, bathing the room in sunlight.

"Hsss!" they recoiled, robes fluttering dramatically.

"Pat, put your wine away, you have conference calls to be in."
