Did I ever mention that my Partner and I are weird people? Like "gallows humor" and "eat anything on the planet at least once" weird? Or that we're advocates for social justice? If not, you have officially been warned. I may have mentioned before about how my kitty has PTSD from being abused, starved and … Continue reading You’ve Been Catfooded!
CW: keeping secrets about child abuse, descriptions of child abuse, discussions of death and systemic abuse, swearing, and standard "never go to the 9th Circle of Hell" trauma.

It's logical to fall asleep when it's dark all the time anyway, but … Continue reading Blog Awards Series #4: Mamas, Don’t Let Your Blogs Grow Up to Be About Cowboys

I started with a few more "freeform" type systems where I could create my character with all sorts of attributes that don't fit into the standard D&D class system. I'll be honest, D&D felt kind of limited after having freeform … Continue reading Blog Awards Series #2: Veteran of the Blog Awards
