hi folks im currently dealing with technical difficulties by which i mean coming to terms with difficulties that were there a long time ago but im only now facing them and these difficulties are

[id: an error message for corrupt audio]

as a result for those of u who listen to @by-suns-and-stars you may notice that partway through an episode there's a change in audio quality on one side or the other so sorry bout that but there's not anything i know how to do. fortunately we have not lost any of the actual story material as far as im aware it's just that we play over call so we each record on our side and if one side's recording doesn't work we still get their voice we just get it as it sounds over the call which is somewhat badly. i will do my best to work with this!! and later on audio will get better too as i have begun to use blanket etc, we started getting better about avoiding background noise, that sort of thing

anyway ! episode will most likely come out this weekend as usual [potential slight delay tho], if youve been enjoying this story do lemme kno, and either way i hope you have a nice day! back 2 editing-

brain dump under hte cut, obvs contains spoilers

oh my god theres so much to unpack here i just

  • straight up just the episode opening with dialogue and stuff instead of a recap was soo good i wonder if when they were playing there wasnt actually any time between this and the end of the last episode idk but its just
  • tbh this entire episode is one long very important quotation but i typed out a bunch of my favorites such as

    • "things have been too chill for too long"
    • "fitzroy turns invisible while firbolg spouts off neoliberal shit so i'm not in this scene and don't get tweeted at"
    • "what you call peace i call stagnation. and not only that- in this system, in this peace, there is also restriction and unfairness. you must have felt it- "
    • "this system is like a bone that has healed crooked. and the only way to heal it is to break it again"
    • "that's not great, order!!"
      "yes but the land soaked in their blood will be fertile fields for the new society!"
      "i find this language. challenging"
    • "you are tired. your watch has been long, and you need to rest. and you are willing to move whatever pieces on your board to give yourself that rest."
      "i hadn't--i would be lying actually if i said i hadn't thought of it that way. but i would like to think my motivations were slightly more altruistic. but i am...tired. i am tired of having to stand by while i see people taken advantage of by a system that doesn't care if they live or die as long as someone's pockets are lined. i am tired of watching potential wasted because they don't fit the mold of so-called heroes. i'm tired of standing by."
      "there's gotta be another way though huh there's gotta be another way!!"
    • "Oh I understand completely. You're trying to tear down a system that assigns a value to every living being in this world. and that's wrong. I understand that more than you might think.
      but your solution, Order, assigns a value to a great many number of people, and that number is zero because they're going to die for the future that you want. I- you seem like a very powerful...thing..., but i do not think that humanity (or i guess because we're all kinds down here) empathy is your strong suit."
      "No, Fitzroy. What I think you lack is perspective. I have empathy. I understand that sometimes when a wound festers the only solution is amputation to save the body. You are unwilling to make the sacrifice needed to save the world."
    • "you speak of perspective. i think for you from your position we must look like ants. but the thing about the ant is you cannot expect him to help you to clean up the picnic when it has ended. he does not understand the picnic is over. he can only see the crumbs in front of him."
      "hm. Master Firbolg."
      "eh?"
      "Do you support and agree to go along with the plan."
      "i...hm. i must speak with my associates."
      "of course."
      "(you can't lie about this can you)"
      "(no. but i do not think i will.)"
      "order...i am sorry you are tired. but it is not worth punishing innocent lives for you to have your rest."
    • "Fitzroy, would you attempt to lie to me?"
      "AbsoLUTELY not."
      They stare you down and they say "you forget i have seen through the eyes of chaos in your mind. I know every dark corner where you would hide. I understand that this will take you some time to accept as an inevitability. and so i hope you understand that until that time i can't have you in the way."
    • "i think it would be beneficial to free ourselves from the notion that either of these deities want anything individually"
    • "what do we care, the whims of a god..."
    • "there will never be a shortage of people that would destroy to raise themselves up."
    • "there is no embodiment of the system that we can bury a dagger in. we must destroy the system itself."
    • "this will be the second home that i have lost. but perhaps it will prevent all others from losing their homes as well."
    • "we will replace the system with something that treasures all above coin."
    • "we have been manipulated to this point. now we will be the ones pulling the strings."
  • really just everything,,,,,,,but
  • also gray was Not who i was thinking i remember i was trying to figure out who they were going to say before they said it and my best guess was that fitz would say gordy and argo would say jackal but nope fjdkslfjkdsflhg
  • this is going to be so fun though i can already feel it, i want to see them just completely destroy grays smug attitude i just. yes. yes good. this direction is sublime.
  • i absolutely love justins roleplaying. like i mean i love really everyones stuff everything about this but shoutout to justin in particular i really love firbolg's monologue about "it pains me to say this but perhaps it is truer to my nature" and all that its............hfhfdhsgkj......................hes just bringin the good shit especially at the end of this episode theres so much stuff theres so much amazing stuff jus listen to him
  • along those lines fitz's ability to think critically on his feet? a+ i really appreciate that, ykno hes dealt with chaos before and been wary of them so he has absolutely no reason to trust order, he admits he agrees with the first part of what theyre saying but not the second part [being the part where they rip the world and have a giant war and all that], just really...idk i just really love how hes interacting with them
  • speaking of which travis you madlad???????the figure howevermany episodes ago in the rift in the hell dimension was order and it makes sense now and i. yep.
  • went back and relistened to the short scene where fitz is teleporting away from gordy's place and the teleport redirects to the godscar chasm and order winks at fitz [bc i know thats order now] and hes just like "ok ok ill go down there geez" lmao-
  • ive been talking about the more serious/dramatic parts but shoutout to chesst best game of the century 10/10 will play someday
  • imagine they just call the unbroken chain meeting and then are like wait false alarm meeting dismissed and everyone in the chain is just "...?" and it leaves a lasting feeling of unsettledness but none of them know whats up with the thundermen all of a sudden or why theyre acting different
  • festo. festo i dont remember which episode it was but they said "but Chaos hasnt been seen in hundreds of years!" - consistencyyyyyyyyyyyyyy *fingerguns at travis* just i appreciate details like that its just. yeah. reinforces things/gives them ways to cross reference i guess is how id say it
  • anyway i think thats all for now folks im just going to sit here thinking about this for two whole weeks i guess if ur current and want to talk please talk my direction because i have no one to talk to im just here trying to convince my friends to listen-

*clears throat, attempts to speak in cursive text before remembering thats not a thing yet*

all of ur comfort characters are invited to a party. what happens

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!

hfdsjkl just finished this one a bit late but here it is !!!!

a real doozy here folks plenty of shenanigans this go-round >=3


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


aaaaalmost done with ep 2 so i can post it the coming weekend,

dude making ur own music is weird its a bit humbling draws attention 2 the amount of skill musicians have and stuff since like

im just ditting out random stuff on the piano and editing out the faltering notes n stuff and i can make a basic melody but i aint trained

n it just makes ya think i guess is what im tryina say

more appreciation for those who've taken all the time to really learn the groove


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)

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

fair, fair
just careful when oops *mix up dice*

ive finished the rough cut of ep 3!! i still dont know if rough cut is a technical term that im not familiar with or something but it sounds intuitive to me so by that i mean that ive finished the bulk of the audio work djsfkldsgh like removing bg noise and silences and just making sure everything is in its place reducing crosstalk that sort of thing.

episode one is ready to go once i get the word from maddy =0

we're waiting to make sure we've settled on the new title first! the one shes thinking right now is "ocean beyond the stars"

its just giving a friendly reminder, wouldnt want humans to get too complacent


An Anonymous user asked:

did you ever make a pixel art game?

not a finished one! have tried making games before but isn't focus atm, why? =0


almost done with first ep of @by-suns-and-stars !!!

put in some piano for ~ambiance~ towards the end hehe

i sent it to the others and im just waiting to hear back from them abt any final edits/when i should post it!!

also done with rough edit of ep 2, still got some sound things to adjust but otherwise its good!

in the meantime i have homework to do but also i'll start on ep 3.

(btw a friend volunteered to transcribe the first 15 mins of ep 1, unfortunately we dont have anyone fully on that task [and my plates v full w editing] so episodes will likely come out w/o complete transcriptions, however im gonna have a gdoc open to the public so ppl can contribute to the transcription if they feel so inclined. hopefully that works out well, i rly want this to be accessible to everyone but also i cant do everything myself aha!)


yesterday we had another session and it was the end of the first arc and it was sooooooo goooooooood theres so many emotions in the air rn i cant wait to share this story ;w;


just got back and the hell is a gribble-


anyway ashtonvilla high is The Hyperfixation ever since we started it so expect to never hear the end of that-

(understand many people have bad bad experience with aba

but just wanted quietly pop in and say is not always bad--obvs can be bad since so many people have bad experience but! times change and things improve and just wanted say that not all aba automatically bad; i [old enough to understand agreed to it] have aba and sat down and talk about what i wanted to improve, was not try fit in nt mold but rather try be able function around house pbbpjjfdkghtt learn to cook and clean and things like that since is hard for me to finish tasks, and i remember at beginning when agree to it person told me we could stop at any time, and anyway yeah just has been helpful for me get better at chores and para is nice and obvs manymany people not have this experience and end up rly bad situation but jsut wanted point out since seems mostly unanimous 'aba is bad' on internet that good aba is possible.

not sure if just different provider or different parents/age but hope other places get better too hope doesnt have to be badbad ableism thing anymore, obvs not everyone need/want aba but just, hope practice as a whole keep get better, just want say own experience since is different. hope have nice day!)

@synthesystem commented:
Um, this is gonna sound dumb but this seems important, what's aba? I kept reading it as ABBA like the band lol

hfdsjkfldsjgl is fine is fine, explanation below

is not band, is stand for "applied behavioral analysis," is therapy for autistic people that has bad history from what i know, of trying to make autistic people act like allistics and stop stimming and big big quotes "be normal",

have heard of ppl put toddlers in aba and stuff and just general not good things, most internet autistic community very against, for good reason,

just here wanted to give input of "doesnt always bad you know" like is not inherent idea that is bad; can be helpful; just in past has been veryvery ableist and bad people bad groups and stuff. but can be better! can focus on help people instead of try make them hide self.

yay!!!

today friend message me say "could i ask a favor" and i say yea what is it he say "i have too much love pls take some 🥺" and i was like AWWWWWW hse very nice,, anyway yes friends are good hope bee doing good


disappeared for time then come back see everyone talking about some sort of discourse but i dont see any discourse except people talking about being bothered by discourse?? i mean glad seems peaceful but other folks dont seem feel like things are peaceful ig its a matter of who u follow maybe

anyway i finished majooooooority of edit ep 1 ashtonvilla high!!! started ep 2!! came here to drop illustration was working on, will post ep 1 once i finish music =D


sup folks ik ive been inactive lately, 's because i'm working on a *gasp* finished art thign?????? well. will be finished. and also editing!!! still.........im getting somewhere tho!!

im not sure how many people will really??end up listening to the podcast since this is a tiny site and im literally just some kid with audacity and not part of a podcast network or anything??? but i'm at least gonna try because i want to keep editing and hopefully people will like it!!! in the meantime theres a small pile of related art and stuff at @by-suns-and-stars which is also where i'll post uh the episodes once im finished with them!

[more rambles under cut]


i want to make it a group blog with the others but it hasnt worked so far and also im not sure they want to run it specifically so right now its just me but yeah- expect more related art soon >=3 and also first episode also soon!! assuming i post it once it's finished there's also the complicated thing of figuring out who does transcriptions because honestly i've already done so much work editing things that i'd love if someone else could do that part but i dont think any of them are up for it, i've heard about other podcasts having community-run transcriptions but since we have 0 community since i havent even posted the first episode or anything yet that wont work for the beginning at least, i want it to be accessible but also it's a lot of work and stuff so we'll see if i can find someone to do that?? if not i'll probly post it but still keep an eye out for a good way to do that.

i'm excited though...we really want to share this story, it's been so fun to play!! hopefully it will be fun for others too!!
