knife go krr


[id: digital drawing of the character Mallory Yun, a human with brown skin, vitiligo, pierced ears, and a dyed-magenta buzz cut. They are wearing round shades, jeans, combat boots, and a long-sleeved striped shirt with a t-shirt over it. They also wear a blue-and-purple sparkly crop jacket with scalloped decorations at the edge that look somewhat like teeth. In one hand they hold three rocks with glowing pink fire around them, and in the other they hold a knife, which they drag down a golden staircase railing behind them, making a horrible KRRRR noise. They pay the noise no mind and instead stand tall staring aggressively at someone out of frame. the background is drawn somewhat abstractly in blocks of color showing the stairs and darkness behind them. the drawing is done in a cartoon style. end id.]


By Suns and Stars | Ep 3: Dorothy Was Not the Impostor [A Dangerous Little Game]

We have made a continual lapse in judgement. Also we're constipated.

Chaos and panic descend upon the camp as four troublemakers run loose in the woods following their supposed kidnapping. Will they face the consequences, or can they sneak their way out of even that? What happened to the actual missing kids? Does any of this even matter compared to the utter majesty of pizza?

I dunno, but there's a lot of bird people... Jose, pick me up, I'm scared!

mmmmmm im miffed that sometimes theres just lost audio on one side, like that happened with parts of ep 2 in the parts where you'll hear ina and i clearly but abby and maddys voices are lower quality or vice versa, that's because sometimes one side's recording gets lost or corrupted or something and it bothers me but i just do my best with it i guess??

i cant find our side for the last hour of ep 4 and im like whyyyyy it must be hiding here somewhere?? idk maybe i should just listen through their side and see if past-me mentions "oh wait the recording didn't work" so that i know whether it even exists or not but. idk man pbffftht


By Suns And Stars | Ep 2: Birds of a Feather... [A Dangerous Little Game]

After an unsettling disappearance, the squad sneaks out at night. How do I know? Well, let's just say a little birdy told me.

[episode list] / [content warnings] / [no transcription yet]


ah.


[id: a four-panel comic, drawn digitally in a cartoonish style and colored in dull shades of purple. It features Mal, a human who is at this point somewhere around nine years old. They have long black hair and vitiligo, and they're wearing a loose t-shirt. Their eyes appear to be blankly staring ahead rather than focusing on any given thing.

1: a room. in the foreground, another kid sits eating a sandwich. in the background, young mal stands by a window, setting their backpack down near a table.

2: Mal sits at their table looking down disinterestedly with one hand on the lid of a metal lunchbox. Around them are various noises from other people talking, represented visually as blank word bubbles and score marks.

3: Mal opens the lunchbox to see their stuffed bunny, Chuffles, immediately sit up from inside and reach out towards them. "Mallory!" exclaims a voice in their head. They stare blankly, seemingly caught off guard. Text next to their head says "ah".

4: Someone from out-of-frame says, "Hey Mallory! What's [obscured text] lunch?" Mal immediately slams their lunchbox shut, their mouth extending into a rigid line and sweat beading on their face. The voice in their head says, "Hey. Hi! It's time to talk! Rude."

bee want talk bout communication.

lots people go "oh bee no talk must be hard cause hard communicate" but is like.

issue not bee nonverbal, before when verbal was still big issues.

brain just. can't.

no way work out word things right that allistics understand easy.

autistics better understanding bee but just is. not talk not issue, issue brain and words.

bee say prefer sign cause easier communicate, and is true! sign more information dense, more flexible, make more sense bee. but still struggle lots. get overwhelm. is just hard.

bee put on brave face lots, cause hate people say that should just learn talk cause communicate easier.

but no matter what, people always always misunderstand bee. very few people understand. real only other who think bee.

and just frustrate. make want hide, never communicate, hate hate hate. just wish people understand.

Looking at the star-filled sky, I sometimes imagine it as a flowering garden, sometimes a dark, dangerous sea, sometimes a taciturn face flooded with tears.
Nikos Kazantzakis, tr. by P. A. Bien, from “Report To Greco,” publ. c. 1961

fancy


[id: two colored drawings of Sunny and Mikayla respectively wearing fancy clothes.

Sunny is a human with somewhat dark skin, brown eyes, and dark hair shaved on the sides. She is wearing a gray suit over a blue shirt. The suit has turquoise accents at the collar, sleeves, and ruffles at the bottom portion that hangs down behind her. She also wears black lipstick, eyeshadow, and a necklace with a diamond-shaped pendant. She has one hand in her pocket and the other raises a glass in the air, and she's smiling.

Mikayla is an elf with light skin, blue eyes, and wavy blond hair pulled into a loose bun. She is wearing a floor-length dress the color of fire and a pearl necklace and matching bracelet. She also has round glasses and eyeshadow. She holds one arm with her other hand as though shy and looks off to the side wistfully, smiling.

end id.]

We should appreciate rainbows more. They sound like a fictional creation you would see in books or shows, but they actually exist. A rainbow is just a part of nature and science.

It's a rare phenomenon, but to look up into the sky and see all the colors arcing across the cloudy sky as sunlight breaks through... it's a marvellous sight.

Reading a long book in a few days and then coming back to face reality after after it ends is probably the closest we can experience to a time-traveller who has just returned from a journey that lasted for years back to his time where everything looks like they've just left.

You’ll care only about the darkness and you’ll watch it for hours, for days, maybe even for years, trying in vain to believe you’re some kind of indispensable, universe-appointed sentinel, as if just by looking you could actually keep it all at bay. It will get so bad you’ll be afraid to look away, you’ll be afraid to sleep.

Folk songs are the best songs because they weren't made up with like, technique and performance in mind but just for the fun and joy of it. I mean people shouldn't be shamed for being 'bad' singers(and that;s like. by the music industry standards. which already makes no sense) anyway, no matter what it is they're singing. I guess what I'm trying to say is that folk songs-like, litteraly, the people's songs- really embody what music is all about at its core and all the best stuff about it, with the way they come to be.

knowyourmeme is blocked in my country.

Im.


mcatnip -

russians are not allowed to know their memes

[shrug emoticon that gets messed up because it has two _ symbols in it]


babushka -

this 'memes are illegal in russia' phrase that i kept seeing on tumblr in all seriousness is true after all...


mcatnip -

only foreign memes are illegal, they're trying to stimulate Russian Meme Economy

you're only allowed to look at cats and мышь(кродеться)


doodles


[id: several sketches in bright colors on a black background. the first is a cartoony depiction of Mallory's head with an X over the mouth. They're a human with a shaved head and pierced ears. They're wearing round shades. Their eyes are partway closed in a resigned sort of manner, eyebrows furrowed slightly. Around them are the words, "I'll take a vow of silence". Yes I was listening to lemon demon.

The second image is two drawings of Luka, a humanoid with a floating fiery orb for a head. He's wearing a long coat and gloves, with a sash tied around his waist. In the first one, he walks hurriedly with one hand on his hip and the other holding a piece of bread. He says, "lol sry gotta go toast is done ✌". From out of frame, Mallory says, "dammit luka". Luka adds, "(also it's cosmic toast that will consume your whole dimension if I don't consume it first but that didn't seem important to mention)". In the second sketch Luka is wearing a mask that looks like a simplified version of a human skull. He smiles and gives a thumbs up. end id.]

By Suns And Stars | Ep 1: Start of a Long Year [A Dangerous Little Game]

Meet our protagonists in a slice-of-life style prologue before it all goes to pieces. And it does. Seriously what were you expecting.

[episode list] / [content warnings] / [transcript (wip)]


Note: The transcript is not, as of me typing this, finished. This is because I (fallow) have a lot on my plate already with editing the episodes and can't exactly cover everything myself. However we do want our story to be as accessible as possible. My kinda halfway solution is this: The document is open for others to work on, so if you have some spare time an energy/want to lend a hand go right on ahead and start transcribing! And if not that's chill too.

In any case, hope you enjoy!

the first episode is up!!! i'm very excited to share this story with everyone, if all goes well i should be posting the second episode next week =D

(sorry for any residual background noise, i try to clean it up as best i can! it'll get better in the future as the others get more conscious of the noises they're making on mic lol)


so anyway we changed the podcast name to @by-suns-and-stars !!!

am gonna post first ep around this weekend =D hope to update weekly, we shall see!

bad idea: edible dice


fallow -

i see the crowd thinks otherwise

you all make valid points but. consider:

trying to play game with friends and they keep eating the dice

(alternately an upside is you can be the friends eating the dice not the person trying to stop them but thtas not where i pictured myself tbh)

@autiestella commented:
easy easy! keep normal dice on hand, allow edible ones for stimmy :3
