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:

#RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a way to follow your favourite news sites and blogs.

When you subscribe to an RSS feed using an RSS app, every new story gets sent to you in chronological order. There are no algorithms or trackers.

You can find out more about RSS (including recommended apps) on's "Alternatives to Google News" page:

You can also follow Mastodon accounts by just adding ".rss":

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:

"I don't want to be doom and gloom, but Patreon is about to eat itself. Or, more specifically, the investors who demand geometric growth are about to demand Patreon eat itself."

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 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
- support me on ko-fi
- boost this toot
Thanks a lot and have some cute foxes 💙

The next round of the #MusicCollab will start on Sunday!

Don't know what this is about? If you're any kind of music maker, you can sign up, be randomly paired with another music maker, and make an awesome song to a specific theme together.

We've released three albums so far ( )

If you don't want to miss the sign-up, check back here on Sunday, when I will post the link, or sign up to the mailing list:

I wish someone would expand this fanlore page I'm still not sure what a landcomm is. LJ-style fandom is very new to me.

So, I haven't been on Dreamwidth lately, and it's largely due to the fact that my laptop doesn't work. That, and I feel like taking a break from writing fanfiction. I signed up for too many things last November and December.

Anyway, one way that I can contribute to comms (not being super interested in writing meta or headcanons or whatever) is making fanfic recommendations! I just put a bare bones explicit (18+) #Venom #fanfic rec list up on the symbrock DW comm:

(And then I crossposted it to my site! And tomorrow I will link to it on my DW journal! Yay!)

apropos of nothing, and without any additional commentary, a month ago a friend asked me what distinguished fanfic from original fiction and why somebody might prefer one over the other, and this was my response [1/2]

[apologies, but there is way, way too much text here for me to be able to transcribe on my phone]

I just wanna encourage people, if they can, to recontextualize envy as that pain of being left out or wanting something badly, because I think envy protects us from that pain by turning it outward. But it also comes between us as artists, and we need one another.

"We (me and my legal team) never heard anything from her husband during her lawsuit against me, and I didn’t even know his first name until this current lawsuit news. The current lawsuit alleges that he sent me several cease-and-desist letters. That did not happen. I have never met him or heard from him, just as I have never met or ever spoke to Sherrilyn Kenyon in my life, even during the lawsuit."


You know what? I think it's time. I'm going to delete everything in my AO3 inbox. Fresh start and all that.
