2016 reference masterpost

I'm dating this into the future so it will stay at the top of my blog. This is a directory of some posts I made during 2016 that are for reference.

Personal Instruction Manual to Orion Scribner, Public Edition.
Public. The first part tells how to talk about me (pronouns and stuff). The second part tells some things acquaintances and friends should know. The last part, like a résumé, tells of work-related skills and background.

Things I want to do in 2016. 🔒
Visible to access/friends list only. My New Year's resolutions and stuff. Maybe you can help me make these things happen?

Scribner's 2016 Wish List
Public. Things that I want or need, and that I'd be delighted to get for Christmas, my birthday, or anytime.

Goods & services I'm selling in 2016
Public. I also list some free goods.

My fav emoji, symbols, and emoticons
Public, even though I only made it for my own reference. For easy copy-pasting of the symbols that I use most often, without having to search for them.

My transition plan, and obstacles to it. 🔒
Visible to access/friends list only. This is one thing I've always desperately wanted-needed to do, and I can't do it all alone. Please help?

Dreamfiction: Banister

Content warnings: body horror, scary situations

I dreamed this last night. A secret society had left the underground riddled with hidden tunnels, boobytrapped staircases spiraling into rotting old abandoned banquet halls, evercrumbling and at any moment fit to collapse. I brought a fistful of rumors and a flashlight both to guide me alone. Read more...Collapse )

Merch?

What are the best/worst sites right now for putting prints on merch, like Cafepress? What should I watch out for?

June & July Newsletter

 What I made in the last couple months... 

Writings:

Illustrations:

Patron-only content that you can see if you give at least $1:

  • Several new pages of my ongoing comic, Mermaid Bride Motif (NSFW, artistic nudity): 11121314. In which the merfolk fall prey to a mysterious peril, and a Sea Witch steps out.
  • calligraphy page about an equivalent of the alchemical elements inspired by newer, queerer science      
  • Microcosmic Paracosm (NSFW, artistic nudity), an alchemical illustration with symbolism I could explain for hours, but I won’t be that rude
  • That Song, a full-page Sunday funny, except the humor’s too lewd for the Sunday funnies
  • Monisters, a spread of concept sketches about a comic I might make about personal finance visualized as a monster-training adventure
  • Featherless and Fearless sketches, some loose concept sketches for two unrelated stories I’m working on. Featherless is a hard-SF alt-prehistory graphic novel. Fearless is a high-fantasy post-human folktale frolic. They’re both about being different and figuring out what it means to be human, and neither use a definition for “human” that is quite the same as what we use here.

Plus, with your help, we've been getting closer to reaching our Patreon goal, where I'll start putting out new Theri There comics. Right now, we're at $140 of $300, so we're not there yet, but anyone who chips in a few more dollars would be a great help for bringing it closer.

Theri There is now on Tapastic

I just got started on Tapastic, which is a site that hosts comics. Please subscribe to Theri There on Tapastic, which is free. When 500 people have subscribed to it, I'll do something cool, so please tell your friends, too.

On Tapstic, you can toggle between reading them in English or in Spanish. Thanks to Jamiroth and Golden Spirit of Otherkin Hispano for translating them to Spanish.

Meanwhile, I’ve set a goal on my Patreon that I’ll start making completely new Theri There comics about otherkin when I’m making $300 a month. You can chip in a dollar to help this happen. Please become a patron.

(Sorry about cross-posting this announcement everywhere, but I want to make sure everyone knows that Theri There finally has a perfect home.)

Goods & services I'm selling in 2016

Summary: I'm selling stuff in order to help make ends meet. (As of 2016-01-15, my family has no income, and I'm looking for a full-time day job.) I prefer cash, but I'll consider barter. I also list some goods here that are free. Send me a PM if you have questions about any of these. I'll update this page often.

[Edited 2016-01-18: Removed goods that can't be shipped.]

Help forwarding my email

Gmail help, please? I want my other Gmail accounts to forward everything to my main Gmail account, as the next best thing to changing them all to the same account name, but when I follow the tutorial, it doesn’t work.

When I tell it to forward, the old address's sign-in fails, as if I entered the wrong password. (I tested the password elsewhere, and it's definitely the right one.) Then the old address gives me a message saying it prevented a sign-in attempt “from an app that doesn't meet modern security standards,” but the sign-in was definitely me, and the app was Gmail’s own site. So that explains what glitched, but not how to fix it. The message didn’t include a way to authorize the sign-in. Help?

Scribner's 2016 Wish List

Summary: This will be the main place where I list things I want during this year, 2016. These are things on Amazon, Etsy, and anywhere else. You can use this list for gift ideas. My birthday's in January, and I celebrate Christmas, and a gift would brighten any other month of the year, too. I'll update this page to cross out things I've gotten, or to add more things I've longed for.

By the way, it's okay for all books and most other things on this list to have been second-hand.

This list doesn't replace my Amazon wish list, which has specific books and things. This list is for more general ideas, like genres of books.

Content warnings: Food. Q slur. Sexual assault in fiction.

[Edit 2016-01-02: Changed to public.]
[Edit 2016-01-05: Added some things.]
[Edit 2016-01-11: Thank you!]
[Edit 2016-01-12: Added wishes for some Nintendo games.]
[Edit 2016-02-01: Added some things.]
[Edit 2016-03-29: Updated a little bit.]
