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, but that's kinda private so I wanted a more public account for talking comics!

mia is meowing mournfully under my chair and i could not tell you why

would really be nice if the disqus back end would consistently load on my phone

it's a lot of work to get her to use that one tbh, lots of... warming up to it

so i took a hair tie, a loose feather, and one of her mouse toys. tied the feather to the mouse, attached to a stick

great success

i guess she just likes feathers

(that's her scratching post if it isn't clear, it's shaped like a cactus)

I found a new stick toy I hadn't opened yet in the closet

took some work, lots of me running around the apartment while she sauntered behind, but she's finally interested in it

has a squeaky mouse on the string and a feather on the tip of the stick

Show thread

mia has already forgotten that she lost the toy and is laying next to the closet, waiting for me to get it out

i have... bad news

Show thread

also having a "i can't breathe" sort of long covid day so not going to spend a lot of time looking

please fish it out yourself, child

Show thread

i took the feather toy off the stick so mia could bat it around by herself while i work

she lost it and she's making me look for it now 😑

i tried to boop her nose and it worked

but then i tried again and she put her paw on my hand

flew too close to the sun

Show thread

I was going to say something else with this but I forgot what it was

I'm tired

Show thread

mia eying my slim jim

look. i get it. but no

explaining to her that she can't play AND eat at the same time, like she's a child

Show thread

mia just grabbed the feather on the stick toy and tried to run off with it??

and then turned around like D: when she saw I was still right behind her lmao

she's trying very hard not to bite me because she knows it's bad but also... it would be fun

so she's nibbling on my hand with just her lips and it's very weird and funny

Show thread

imagine, for a moment, if you will:

you. tiny. gentle. beautiful. pacing by a closed door. whining. whining. WHINING. laying down.

me. across the room. saying i will not play with you right now. you have plenty of toys can you can play with that don't invovle me.

a travesty.

recently had the thought "why not try telling my brain to just... close my mouth when I lay down" since that's how you activate lucid dreaming

and uh. worked surprisingly well, lol. not waking up with a dry mouth or weird gunk on my teeth anymore.

Show thread

I'd been having a problem for months bc of long covid where I was sleeping w/ my mouth open. was scaring myself awake from naps when I'd start snoring.

never had done it so consistently outside of illness but w/ the whole "it's just harder to breathe" thing it started up.

it's backflips-off-the-back-of-my-chair o'clock
