Pinned toot

I just updated my AO3 profile. I stated how comfortable I am with 1) works based on what I've created and 2) constructive criticism in the comments. I think other people should do the same. Please boost.

Hi, I'm apple. 🍎 You could also call me "pen". She/her/hers pronouns. I'm part of the You can find me on .

I'm still figuring out how the heck Mastodon (and Mastalab) works. I'm still figuring out the unspoken etiquette, too. Please bear with me.

I'm a shipper. I've seen TOS and TNG. I don't mind spoilers. If I was in Starfleet I'd be a red shirt, like Uhura.

Other fandoms I like:

Huh. This article makes an interesting case that it was the ballpoint pen, not computers, that brought about the decline of handwriting. getpocket.com/explore/item/how

I'm trying, with mixed results, to remind myself that the (lack of much) reaction to my latest fanart doesn't mean it's not Good Art. And I'm putting this out there for any other artists in the same boat. #ArtistProblems #fanart

the urge to write fanfic is great; the urge to fall asleep face-down on my desk in greater

I'm a fool. How could one not write fanfiction if it's not a songfic? I can't believe I didn't have this revelation earlier.

When will Hollywood let me make a film despite my complete lack of material or prior work in the business

Restating this for #ArtTips :

You need to create for the job you want. You need to make illustrations if you want to be an Illustrator, you need to make games if you want to make games, you need to make comics if you want to make comics.

Do it with passion! Do it with indulgence! Create these things for yourself! Personal works in your relevant field can be ESSENTIAL for a portfolio!

For years now, I've had a thousand monkeys writing on a thousand type writers. Now its time to see see what masterpieces they have come up with.

Please
Don't feel bad or ashamed if you spend your week-end sleeping, resting.

It's *it's purpose*.

And in itself, resting is **not** doing nothing.

It's taking care of yourself, and allowing to gather back some energy. Some time to yourself.

Resting *is* doing something, for you. And it's a good thing to do sometimes.

Is there an e-ink ebook reader that runs on free software and can read epub?

Is there at least one that doesn't ever connect to the internet?

This is exactly the kind of thread that needs to be a blog post instead, anyway here you go:

one of my fave things about getting into a new fandom is like, getting obsessed with new canons and associating them w/ songs that previously didn't have a Character Match

I just updated my AO3 profile. I stated how comfortable I am with 1) works based on what I've created and 2) constructive criticism in the comments. I think other people should do the same. Please boost.

I realized I don't have enough money to pay my rent, so if you want to help me you can either:
- buy something from my shop faerie-art.com
- support me on ko-fi ko-fi.com/anaisfae
- boost this toot
Thanks a lot and have some cute foxes 💙
