Hi! I'm poet! I'm an old (at heart if not reality) writer transwoman who runs a library and teaches writing classes and then uses all her skills to write very good queer stories involving 1) dragons, 2) moms, or 3) older butches, often all three at the same time!
For the past forever, I've been writing Dragon Moms, a serial story about queer moms having adventures and family problems! http://www.dragonmoms.com
You can find my other stories and novels here: http://www.poetfox.com
I started Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Initial Thoughts: Show more
1. I figured the English VO would probably be entertaining-bad but it's actually super endearing? I'm pleased I already like characters and a lot of that is the voice acting. I'm into it.
2. I really like that Rex's silly outfit is totally the male version of the not-armor women usually have to wear in these games.
3. I don't know what the little monster race is called but they are unique and rad as hell and I already love them to death.
I played through What Remains of Edith Finch today Show more
I always knew I'd like this but I kept putting it off until PS+ gave me an excuse. Granted, fairly bad idea to play it while I'm feeling a bit isolated when it's a game about people being missed, but hey.
I loved how oddly grounded the magical realism felt. It was very emotional true. and I love how it snatches lore away from you fairly regularly. Because that's not the important part.
It's worth a two or so hours for sure.
In other Me Playing Pokemon News... Show more
I've forgotten a lot of the move weakness chart, apparently. I thought that was something so ingrained in me that it would never happen. I think I just never really internalized Fairy type and that sort of makes me doubt everything else now? Something like that... but yeah, I was looking up that chart over and over during the Elite Four.
Let's Go Eevee Final Thoughts Show more
Detective Pikachu pushed me to finally finish this up.
Even though I dropped it for a month or two there, I honestly super enjoyed it. As the kind of fan who is mostly here for the monsters and less for the mechanics these days, I was super into how breezy it was. And the catch mechanics I expected to hate I really enjoyed a lot. It made a lot of areas less of a hassle and put the focus on trainers, which were always my favorite part anyway.
Anyway, it good.
Gencon Event Planning Show more
Every year at Gencon I plan a whole schedule, and go "oh, this is easy." And then the moment I have to buy the tickets I go "oh no, wait, this fucking sucks" and redo the whole schedule on the fly, and then after I do that, I go "you know what? A pretty good schedule."
Anyway, pretty happy with my schedule, and still a ticket or two available for the games I'm GMing come play little kid dragon adventures with me thank you.
Very Pointless Whining about Video Game Maintenance Periods Show more
Dauntless is down until it's launch on Tuesday and it was my plan for what to do while my partner sleeps this morning so as not to wake them up, so now I honestly feel kind of lost.
Detective Pikachu Show more
made me cry like twice but not really for the story more for complicated emotional things.
That said, it was a movie made with love and I was real into it.
I tried Dauntless Show more
And so far it seems like a pretty good MonHun copy with F2P stuff. Simpler, but that's not necessarily bad. Lots of F2P hooks, but I kind of play a lot of things like that, so it doesn't bother me (obviously your mileage may vary there).
Anyway, looking forward to keeping plinking at it slowly for a bit and seeing if it catches me.
The Difference Between My Brother and I When Playing MonHun Show more
Me: Okay, going to recruit a new Palico... I think I'll name this one Lily, and dress her up really cute, she can be the cute one.
My brother: Let me swap in Stankpaw.
My brother: Yeah, he has the poop-throwing skill, so...
Cat Update Show more
Finishing grading this morning by snuggling up on the couch in blankets, for I deserve it. But Hanabi continues to push my screen down in an attempt to get fed early. I'm working lady! Come on now.
Tabletop Roleplaying Games, Looking For Suggestions Show more
Hey, GenCon event registration is coming up, so let me know if there's an RPG I should be looking to play a one shot of to try, thank you.
Uh, and if you're going to GenCon and want to know when the dragon games I'm running are, let me know?
Puyo Puyo eSports Show more
Got this on Switch. It's pretty bare bones but it's also like... exactly what you want if you just want to play Puyo Puyo online in Handheld mode while you have something inconsequential on the TV. And it's always nice to have a version of Puyo to play doing the "take one JoyCon it's time to throw down" thing that one rarely does with a Switch.
I am extremely mediocre at Puyo but Puyo is still good, so.
A MonHun Update Show more
I'm near the endgame but I'm at the point where I can only handle like... two hunts solo before I'm all "I'm good."
Which is fine! It's fun to hunt two things and then move on to doing something else! But I also feel like maybe I should start another game, but don't want to because I keep doing those two hunts.
Gaming is weird.
So I finally watched Endgame Show more
And everyone was right.
I really really really had to pee by the end of it.
Anyway, Youtube is Wierd Show more
So we watch these theme park vloggers, and they put up this video announcing they're having a baby, and it's just a weird experience.
It's like... I watch them go shopping and do all kinds of random stuff literally every day? I'm happy for them? But them talking about having a baby makes me go "Why the hell are you talking to me about this? This is your thing, go enjoy it."
It just puts all the videos into this creepy space somehow. Like I'm invading their life.

I'm at work today to tutor, but I literally cannot speak so I really don't know how much actual tutoring I'm going to be able to do.
Monster Hunter Show more
Did my first hunts in Switch Portable mode, which shocked me it took this long. I had a little less camera control that with the pro controller, but overall, a great experience, especially for grinding for supplies. (Such as beating Kecha Wacha over and over again for Rodeo gems)
