Guide to post signatures (:boost_no:​) 

We've noticed that, when we sign posts as both of us, we tend to sign them differently depending on how exactly we're co-fronting at the moment. So here's a brief explanation of how I think we're using them--we're doing this however feels right, though, so this isn't a definitive guide.

-F: Post by Felthry alone
-R: Post by Rosemary alone
-F&R: Post by both of us, with Felthry as the main fronter who wrote it
-R&F: Post by both of us, with Rosemary as the main fronter who wrote it
-F/R: Post written by Felthry on behalf of Rosemary
-R/F: Post written by Rosemary on behalf of Felthry

Those for whom English is not your first language: How easily did /θ/ (as in "thanks" or "breath") and /ð/ (as in "there" or "breathe"), the two sounds represented by ⟨th⟩ in English, come to you?

These are sounds that are cross-linguistically rare; only three or four major languages (and a handful of minor languages) have them, so I'm curious how easy or hard it is for language learners to acquire them

Financial help request 

between higher power and other bills, health issues making me miss work, and more rotten luck getting lots of terrible tips while working, I'm in a really bad spot for bills and rent this month. Hate to ask for help again when I had to do this just two months ago in February, but I gotta...

anything helps and I'll delete this as soon as I have enough between work over the next few days and these donations.

also, like, literally everything that happens in wild arms 3

the wild arms series has a lot of really bizarre lore when you think about it

i mean for one thing there's the whole "guns are magic devices made out of fossilized dragons that draw upon their wielder's power" thing

Thursday Outbreak repost, long, very silly 

We're receiving reports of an outbreak of Thursday, rapidly moving westward.

Update on today's Thursday outbreak. Plans are already being put into motion. A controlled release of Friday has been performed in Kiribati and we are tracking its spread west through New Zealand.

If you are still experiencing Thursday, do not panic. We expect the expanding wave of Friday to reach your location within the next 24 hours, sooner in most locations. The death toll is not expected to exceed 160 000.

Further news on the Thursday outbreak. The decision to perform a controlled release of Friday to displace Thursday was taken with full knowledge of the risks. Unfortunately, control has been lost and Friday is now spreading unchecked. The chair of the advisory board has submitted her resignation. Simulations show a >90% chance it will develop into Saturday if control cannot be reestablished. We advise you to make all appropriate preparations.

Update on the ongoing Thursday and Friday outbreaks. Thursday continues to be displaced, with Australia and parts of Russia now reporting as Thursday-free. Sadly, that's the extent of the good news. Friday has hit the Eurasian mainland and containment is now likely impossible. We are not abandoning attempts to control its propagation, but success is unlikely. We are considering options for Saturday mitigation, but have ruled out deliberately introducing Sunday at this early stage.

The Thursday outbreak appears to be contained. Cleanup is proceeding in the remaining affected areas, and is expected to be complete within four hours. Friday remains at large. Be watchful for signs of developing Saturday.

And that's it! I had far more fun than I expected to writing this whole Thursday Outbreak thing, considering it started as a throwaway joke. That said, while I could go on, I think I'm going to draw a line under it here before it outstays its welcome. I hope you all have a lovely Friday!

mutual aid / assistance request 

My partners and I need some help paying for food and bills; we're a group of disabled autistic trans critters doing our best to survive while the one of us who can work does her best to find freelance work but it's a slow and often inconsistent process. Anything helps, and boosts are extremely appreciated.

music commissions are OPEN 

hello im opening comms now. let's say 4 slots for the time being

i do electronic music of various forms

$150 - 60-second artistic freedom commissions! same idea as visual-art wing-it commissions: you give me a simple idea, and i run with it. at least 60 seconds of music
$80 - 30-second jingle commissions! perfect for alarm tones, ringtones, whatever you wanna use it for

if you need music for a thing and want longer tracks or more creative control over how they sound, i'm happy to negotiate! just contact me and we'll chat

my terms of service are normally hosted on their own page, but neocities is currently down for maintenance, so the cliff's notes version is:

- payment up front in full (i will send you an invoice)
- noncommercial use only (streamers can use them for streams). for commercial usage rights we will negotiate extra
- i reserve the right to refuse a comm, or cancel and refund you, at any time
- you reserve the right to request a refund after two weeks of no delivery

the existence of directx implies the existence of indirecty
