wizardposting / being in the department of aesthetical things
The latest in my stunning co-optation of the wizard aesthetic (despite possessing NO actual magical abilities nor earned my staff on Roke or at any other reputable arcane school): AN ALEMBIC WITH WHICH TO STORE MY MOUTHWASH IN A MORE AESTHETICAL MANNER!! It's actually meant for separating oil and vinegar for salad dressing but it was by far the coolest design. Now I just need another aesthetical mouthwash to complete the look...
Realised I didn't do an #introduction post when I joined this week, so, uh... hey!!
I'm Linden! 25, he/him, partnered w/ my beloved husbundo @gabdotvee <3
I'm a librarian, would-be author (presently redrafting my first MS), undergrad at Birkbeck, lover of comics, The Mountain Goats, indie games, and making new friends!
I'm cis, ADHD, on the spectrum and type II bipolar. Multiplicities of identity are too wide to cover in one post, but for me it's mainly fandom and being gay and doing crimes.
perhaps the real craft was the discursive frameworks of intersectional womanhood we learned along the way
there is an alternate universe out there were someone at snl shot down andy samberg's idea for lazer cats and he's still bitter about it. like, it was a great idea bro, why do you have to ruin everything bro https://youtu.be/zlu4KhylTfA
@godtierchaoticgay I knew crows were clever but I didn't know they were clever enough to observe you for weeks, analyze and deduce your emotional weak points and then exploit them fully to get cooked meats.
Anyway the moral of the story is don't take off precious jewellery because you're worried about tan lines and also everyone loves bacon.
I was really depressed for the last two days because I left my ring on the lawn and the crows stole it BC shiny. It's irreplaceable and Akkas gave it to me two years ago so I was devastated. I dredged the pond and used a metal detector all over the lawn but it was gone. But today I cooked the crows bacon in the morning and this afternoon it was returned RIGHT WHERE I LEFT THE BACON!!!!!
webs and spiders: evokes images of nature; the circle of life; tiny creatures working to create something bigger in the world
information superhighway: evokes artificial projects; tourist traps; huge SUVs travelling from strip mall to strip mall
found out about the #OurFlagMeansDeath renewal, predicably, from the queer librarians group chat. here is me screaming in realtime about it:

queering libraries, the vibes (bringing)
The coolest and best thing about libraries is there's always one very cool nice visibly queer librarian in every branch. The less cool thing is there's rarely more than one at each branch so you don't often get to work with them. BUT WHEN YOU DO IT IS ALWAYS A VIBE!
Two trans positive stickers I spotted on my walk today as well ☺️
One is on a black pole and says “can’t hide trans pride!” and the other is on a parking information sign with trees behind it and says “protect trans youth” - both stickers have trans pride colours as their background and are handmade.
i dont know what i'm doing (he/him)
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
