Pinned toot

Hi! I'm Emily and I make a comic called Blitz Phoenix, which is about a boy who becomes a guinea pig in his mad-scientist mother's experiments and gets superpowers (which he's really bad at using) and a brain AI, that he never gets along with.

[CW for the comic since the mom is abusive & dogs do get hurt/killed (they're also being experimented on, etc)]

My main masto is @SunScales, but that's kinda private so I wanted a more public account for talking comics!

but then there was like this... mountain of weird giant security cameras? and suddenly i was on the mountain and the cameras were shooting lasers at people and killing them

so i had to climb down the mountain in skates and was like fuck i just wanted some fish

but then i was really concerned no one would know they were *mine*? so i decided i was going to take them back

so i was wearing my skates and trying to grab these giant bettas out of the water and kept falling down bc the fish were getting away from me

so the next day i got some fish food and went to the park to feed them and they were doing so well they grew to be like a foot long, and people had noticed these fantasic bettas in the water and were very excited and loved them, and they were super friendly with everyone

i had a dream like "i want to get a bunch of new fish, but I don't actually want to set up tanks for them"

so i bought a bunch of bettas and took them to a fish pond at a local park and just threw them in

I think today is the first time in two weeks I've woken up and haven't been dead tired 🙌

how is it only 10:30 I thought lunch was coming up but its SO far away

I had to get chips from the vending machine I'm so hungry

hi it's Monday and I'm super not ready for it, can I get a Mulligan on Sunday

I can settle for Monday just letting me sleep for 3 more hours

my brain has been super turned off all day, can 5 pm please get here sooner I'm ready

autocorrect I appreciate you switching "lied" to "liked" bc you apparently think better of me

however, I am a fucking liar

I guess they think they're being nice but wtf

I already don't like coffee and they're sabotaging the free stuff so now I'm just paranoid every time I go to get some

I found out recently that someone in the breakroom has been making coffee with THREE TIMES as much grounds as you're supposed to

they don't even DRINK the coffee, they just MAKE it for the building

I'm pretty sure it's been like actual months since i've drawn Terry, so here's a doodle this morning of him being a weirdo

I ended up writing a list of alternative names for the bull (like Iron Gorgon, Gorgonator, Gorgatron) bc I don't think I'll ever be able to hear just "gorgon" and not think snake-haired people

I found out last night that "Gorgons" in DND are iron bulls that petrify with their breath, and snake people with snake hair that petrify with their eyes are just called Medusas and I'm still really bothered by it

we're very much not about clout here. follow to follower ratios, worrying about doing numbers on your posts, holding back on boosting something that doesn't seem popular are all pretty gross habits we try to purge ourselves of here.

we're about being a community, not a popularity contest.

most of us were like that before we came here. it takes time to unlearn and embrace a different way of using social media, but it's possible and you'll be better for it.
