She saw on TV that ghosts made things cold, and she’d always had chilly feet at night.

So she found a stone with a hole through the middle and she waited under the covers until the chill made her toes curl.

Gently, she sat up, closing one eye and holding the stone up to the other.

Shimmering and thin as a beam of moonlight, the cat stretched and resettled on her feet.

She smiled and went back to bed, careful not to kick.

She’d always wanted a cat.

β€˜It’s just a pigeon,’ said the girl. β€˜Let it die.’

The boy lifted it with gentle hands. It was too weak to struggle. He could feel its heartbeat against his fingertips. β€˜It just needs help, that’s all.’

He nursed it day and night. Warmed it by a lamp, cleaned its wounds. Fed it from his hand. Every day it grew stronger. And larger.

After a week, it was the size of a cat. A month, a dog. It gazed at him with adoring eyes. And one day, it would carry him into the sky.

IngramSpark half off code 

Looks like you can use code EXPERT to get 50% on IngramSpark publishing services

and it also looks like it's not just one use, as I've used it on more than one book

there's probably a 100% off code about somewhere, but if like me you don't have one and would like to reduce the cost of publishing, you can use this one. :)

(I don't think it applies to ordering proof copies, not sure yet! Feel free to test.)

*melts into a puddle*

it's done

thanks @futzle for being so helpful!

Poor kitty, though! I feel *so guilty*.

It was Joh the first time, years ago, and we've been so careful since. But today .... well, it turns out that sticking his tail in the gap *every day* did eventually lead to a problem!

I apologised and checked his tail and he was fine.

But he must have thought I did it on purpose because after breakfast he hid under a chair and wouldn't come out until I personally called him out and gave him affection.

Since then he's been happily mirroring me.

This morning, Merlin's habit of cramming his tail into the bedroom door jamb every morning when we leave the room led to me accidentally pinching his tail! 😱

He *screamed* and hissed ... and then continued to demand breakfast.

This is the second time in his 11 years of life.

Good morning folk and friends from far and near!

Today I wish you a moment of calm ✨

Good morning folk and friends from far and near!

Today I wish you a gentle start to your week ✨

My friend Sunyata, a queer disabled Black femme from NYC, has had their gofundme up for *2 years*, before the pandemic even, and it’s still unfulfilled.

This week, I’m asking you to get Sunyata up to $5350/$20,000. That’s $600 more that will go toward desperately needed mental health treatment, which longterm will support their career as a poet and artist.

From them: β€œFundraisers that haven’t met their goal often get less donations. Please please please don’t let mine fall by the wayside. It’s already been two years. After I finish this degree program, I hope to be accepted into Brown University so I can be in a position to help other Black trans folks. Our liberation is bound together.”

If you’d prefer to give not thru gofundme, Sunyata also has zelle, paypal, venmo, and cashapp:

Zelle: blackqueerbpd@gmail.com
Paypal: paypal.com/paypalme/sunyatax
Venmo: @/liberationforall
Cashapp: $vsunnymoon

PS Remember to NEVER tip GoFundMe, because they already take a cut of all donations.

I'm running Kin TTRPG today for my players. ^_^

Previous sessions went really well. Hopefully today does as well!

help me pay for ttrpg arts maybe? 

I was quite ill last night so I couldn't post properly about this but I'm just so grateful.

I don't know how I've been so lucky that I've ended up in such a supportive corner of the internet but it's amazing to me that so many people again and again have helped me make projects I wouldn't normally be able to afford.

You are all wonderful. Everyone who shared, everyone who donated, just the whole lot of you. πŸ’™

The young dragon crawled over the snow-covered mountain rocks toward the elder dragon.

"Pharnax tells me you've been to the valley little one"

"I have," the youngling said, avoiding the old one's stern gaze.

The elder snorted. "Rather than acting guilty, tell me what you saw, and we may gain something from your visit yet."

"Herds of food elder! Humans too!"

A low growl emanated from the elder. "Humans are a bad omen. I must gather the council of seven. go home, we will speak later."

help me pay for ttrpg arts maybe? 

100%. Thanks so much for helping me afford that, everyone.

Gonna delete the original post so people don't keep tipping since there's now nothing else to cover!

Need to sleep now but I will catch up tomorrow. πŸ’™
